Protesters in Wheelchairs Dragged Out of the Capitol

The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA} was signed into law in 1990 by President George H.W. Bush, a Republican. At that time, there were still some Republicans with empathy, kindness, and courage – at least sometimes. That is all gone now.

In their ongoing and determined attempts to destroy America, the Republicans are attempting to gut the ADA to please business interests.

The current GOP is so unrelentingly evil that if they have their way they will also gut Social Security, Medicaid, and Medicare.

Last night, protesters from National Adapt were camped outside the Rules Committee room in the Capitol. U.S. Capitol police arrested some of them and also threatened reporters with arrest if they filmed the proceedings.

Some did anyway:

One of the exchanges between protesters and Capitol Police went like this:

THE GOP MUST BE STOPPED.

ICEstapo Detains Superstorm Sandy Hero

Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officers detained Indonesian immigrants while they dropped off their children at school.

One of the immigrants was a hero during the Superstorm Sandy cleanup in 2012. He helped rebuild over 200 homes after that natural disaster:

The immigrants took sanctuary in a Highland Park, New Jersey church. That night, their homes were vandalized. Coincidence?

Welcome!

Welcome! This website is the place to go to find out how to fight against the incredible danger to American democracy that Donald Trump and the current GOP pose.

Not only will we discuss how to fight back, but to be better than them by helping others! The Trumps are selfish, lazy grifters who only want to make more money for themselves, in legal and illegal ways. They do not care if they destroy America in the process.

Don’t be a Trump!
