100 thoughts on 100 days … murphyforflorida.com


 

In honor of Donald Trump’s first 100 days in office, here are 100 things to remember about his presidency so far:

100.  Lying about the smaller size of his inauguration crowd
99.  Making white nationalist Steve Bannon a key part of his leadership team
98.  Threatening to pull out of the Paris agreement on climate change
97.  Sean Spicer making errant and offensive comments about the Holocaust
96.  Going back on his word to name China a currency manipulator
95.  Announcing the bombing of Syria over chocolate cake with the Chinese president
94.  Threatening to break up the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals after it ruled against him
93.  Hiring Gen. Michael Flynn as National Security Advisor amid possibly illegal entanglements with foreign governments
92.  Handling classified documents over open-air dinners at Mar-a-Lago
91.  Golfing, golfing, golfing after consistently criticizing President Obama for doing so
90.  Outsourcing key policy initiatives to his inexperienced son-in-law
89.  Directing administration officials away from using the term “climate change”
88.  Attorney General Jeff Sessions lying to the Senate about pre-election communications with Russia
87.  Likely racking up more in travel and security costs in one year than President Obama needed in 8 full years
86.  Getting Neil Gorsuch on the Supreme Court after the Senate GOP blocked Obama’s rightful nominee Merrick Garland in 2016
85.  Installing Wall Street executives and lobbyists to key posts after promising to “drain the swamp”
84.  Via Kellyanne Conway, allowing the phrase “alternative facts” to enter our discourse
83.  Declaring the free press the enemy of the American people
82.  Threatening the well-being of millions of Americans by holding healthcare subsidies hostage
81.  Introducing a budget that guts funding for PBS, scientific research, the EPA, education programs, and Planned Parenthood
80.  Still refusing to release his taxes
79.  In a Fox interview, apparently not knowing the difference between Kim Jong-il and Kim Jong-un
78.  Claiming that he only lost the popular vote because of millions of fraudulent votes cast by illegal immigrants
77.  Tweeting complaints about his daughter’s clothing line being pulled from stores

72.  Having one of the least diverse cabinets in recent memory
71.  Backtracking and flip-flopping on his opposition to NAFTA
70.  Backtracking and flip-flopping on his opposition to NATO (because he didn’t know “much” about it)
69.  Reversing President Obama’s practice of making the White House visitor’s log public
68.  Firing U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara after promising to keep him on
67.  Failing to divest himself of business interests that present clear conflicts of interest
66.  Introducing a tax plan that creates huge loopholes for pass-though companies, hedge funds…and likely Trump himself
65.  “Nobody knew healthcare could be so complicated.”
64.  Picking fights with longtime allies like GermanyCanada, and England
63.  Supporting tainted election results in Turkey that give more power to its autocratic leader
62.  Ordering a Navy SEAL raid that gathered no actionable intelligence
61.  Being unaware if we were sending an “armada” to North Korea
60 through 7:  Blank in recognition of Trump’s 54 of 60 unfulfilled, stalled, or broken campaign promises, per the Washington Post, many of which are on this list
6.  Leaving dozens of vital national security positions empty at the State Department
5.  Instituting an unconstitutional immigrant ban that makes our nation less safe
4.  House leaders standing by Intel Committee Chair Devin Nunes after he interfered with Congress’s investigation into Russian election meddling
3.  Trying (and failing) to fully repeal Obamacare
2.  Fabricating claims out of thin air that President Obama wiretapped Trump Tower
1.  After one of the most divisive elections in history – in which Trump lost the popular vote by almost 3 million – failing to govern as if he represents the entire country, not just those who voted for him.

Onward and upward,

Patrick

Sage, Working Washington


how about instead we just get right down to it

 

This is where the inspiring introductory bit is supposed to go but how about instead we just get right down to it and I tell you all the stuff that happened this month at Working Washington:

  • We spread the word about misleading minimum wage surcharges with a list and map powered by grassroots submissions from across the state. Tens of thousands of peopel have seen and shared our page, and we even got written up in The Stranger!
  • We launched an updated version of our What’s My Wage tool. It gives workers across the state an easy way to find out what minimum wage law covers them — and to let us know if there are any issue.
  • We fought back against against an effort by 380 giant corporations to get a special Congressional exemption from having to follow state and local sick leave and family leave laws.
  • We organized online to help build for this year’s annual May Day march in Seattle, hosted by El Comite & the May 1st Action Coalition in Seattle. We’ll be powering text message action alerts all along the route — text MAYDAY to 38470 to join in!
  • We continued to push for progress on paid family leave in the State Legislature by lifting up stories from members across the state.
  • And we’ve been laying the groundwork for a lot more to come in the weeks & months ahead.

When I look at that list I feel really good about everything we accomplished this month… with one exception.

We haven’t hit our monthly grassroots fundraising goal yet.

We need individual supporters to power our fight for workers rights. Billionaires aren’t going to support workers organizing to take on income inequality, and the government isn’t going to pay for it either.

That means it’s up to you.

Can you make a contribution today and help us keep up the fight for workers rights in the months ahead?
