Since last time...

Comedian Michelle Wolf pulverized everyone at the White House Correspondent's Dinner. Many in the media were critical of the act's foul language and perceived criticism of Sarah Huckabee Sanders' appearance, while others reveled in it. Did you see it? It's well worth a viewing (or two).

Another performance got less attention, but was much more offensive. Donald Trump appeared before an adoring crowd and lied, slandered, and threatened to "close down the country." But the media barely addresses this behavior. Is it becoming the new normal? Is that dangerous?

So much more to talk about and we'll do it tonight! Join us!

"I actually really like Sarah (Huckabee Sanders). I think she's very resourceful. She burns facts and then she uses that ash to create a perfect smokey eye. Like maybe she's born with it, maybe it's lies. It's probably lies." — Michelle Wolf

Six more members of the Trump administration left. Gary Cohn, John McEntee, Rex Tillerson, Steve Goldstein, and David Shulkin all quit or got canned. H. R. McMaster was replaced by John Bolton, making the war mongering, nutty neo-con with the walrus mustache Trump's third national security advisor. The Office of Government Ethics has taken to meditation to deal with the chaos. What's your personal coping strategy?

50,000,000people unknowingly had their information harvested to help Trump take the presidency. Cambridge Analytica, a firm with links to former Trump Adviser Steve Bannon, utilized Facebook profiles to obtain data which was then used to micro target potential voters with fake news stories. Many people are deleting their facebook profiles as a result. Will you?

The survivors of the Parkland School shooting made their voices heard! The March For Our Lives brought out supporters of gun reform around the world! Were you among them?

Since last time...

America had its 294th school shooting since 2013. Seventeen were killed when a gunman, armed with an AR-15, opened fire at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Florida. Lawmakers sprang into action with decisive, effective measures to prevent the 295th shooting: The Ten Commandments! Apparently skeptical about the protective power of biblical writings (kids are so cynical), and clearly pissed off that these massacres have seemingly become an accepted part of American life, student survivors are becoming activists! They will march on Washington! Hopefully these young people are prepared for the pushback they will get from the NRA and other entrenched interests. They have no shame. Have we turned a corner in the fight for gun reform?

While the tears continued to fall over the tragedy, Rep. Claudia Tenney (R-N.Y.) claimed in a radio interview that "...so many of these people that commit the mass murders end up being Democrats." When questioned by a reporter about this startling assertion, for which she offered no evidence, the dear woman barked "Fake News!"and abruptly ended the interview, adding "Bye. Done. It's ridiculous." She's up for re-election in November. Will she regret these reckless words?

In #TrumpRussia news, a former aide of Donald's has lost his shit! Sam Nunberg went on a couple of cable news shows and claimed that he would refuse to provide documents to, nor answer any questions from, special council Bob Mueller. He also stated that Donald Trump is "stupid" and "may have done something illegal," and that White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee-Sanders is a "fat slob." What's the deal with this joker? What's this meltdown all about?

Since last time...

The government shut down, then started back up a few days later. Very little was accomplished, although Democrats did get CHIP funded for 6 years. The Dreamers are still in limbo. Another shutdown looms this week. Will it be avoided?

Minority President Trump told a reporter he was "looking forward" to being interviewed by special council Robert Mueller. Donald's lawyers aren't on board with that. Will it ever happen? Will Donald wiggle his way out of it?

The stock market plunged nearly 1,600 points. And it was all Obama's fault, according to Sean Hannity. Seriously. What will become of such fawning, partisan pundits when the Trump regime is finally exposed? Will they lose their audience?

Nashua Drinking Liberally Meets Tonight! (Tuesday 1/2)

Hi Everyone, and Happy New Year! With Donald in the White House, many wondered if we'd ever see 2018. But the Resistance is strong, and here we are! This is just a friendly reminder that Nashua Drinking Liberally meets tonight, 7pm, at Bertucci's!located at 406 Amherst St. Get out of this #*%?!!! cold and warm up with us!

Since last time...

Donald did NOT, as many feared, fire Bob Mueller over the holidays. It seems as though Team Trump's approach is going to be trying to discredit the special council instead, along with any former associates who may be cooperating with him. Donald isn't known for his veracity, or for his popularity, so will this tactic really be effective?

Time Magazine's Person of the Year 2017, didn't go to a person, but rather to a group of people. The Silence Breakers - people who had the courage to come forward about sexual harassment and assault. Do you agree with their choice?

As discouraging as it seems, Donald is the second most admired man in America. But serving as more evidence that this is NOT a deplorable nation, guess who's #1? Would that have been your pick, too?

So much to talk about as the Resistance enters into 2018 without slowing down. Come join us and share what's on your mind!

Since Last Time...

Flynn flipped. He's promised full cooperation with Mueller. Who's next? Is this the beginning of the end for Donald?

In the dead of night, with no Democratic support, the Senate rammed through the massive GOP tax reform scam bill.It's very unpopular. Will the electorate make them pay in the 2018 mid-terms? Any possibility it won't get through committee?

Powerful men have been getting accused of sexual harassment and / or assault at an astonishing rate. Bill O'Reilly, Harvey Weinstein, Louis CK, James Toback, Matt Lauer, Al Franken, Kevin Spacey, and many many more. Why now? Has something shifted?

The President of the United States promoted neo-Nazi propaganda. Just another day in Trump's America? Is this act, which is shocking, frightening, and quintessentially un-American, the new normal? Brits condemned it. Did anyone here do the same?

Net Neutrality is on the chopping block, as FCC chairman and former Verizon lobbyist Ajit Pai prepares to destroy the internet as we know it. But the RESISTANCE still has something to say about that. Nationwide protests will be held at Verizon stores on Thursday, December 7th. The goal is to pressure Congress to stop the FCC. Will you join in the resistance?

Since Last Time...not much has happened. Well, except for the destruction of Puerto Rico, the cynical politicization of the NFL, and another mass shooting. Oh yeah, and we're now closer to World War Three than ever - no issues that can't easily be settled over a friendly pint!

So please come share, vent, and laugh with us!

Since Last Time...

The white supremacists came to Boston. And Boston came to greet them. 40,000 counter-protesters turned out to denounce racism and bigotry when approximately 100 conservative activists held a "free speech" rally ("whiney white guys with every advantage who inexplicably blame their life problems on historically abused and marginalized minorities" wouldn't fit on the permit) last month on Boston Common. The voices of the crowd drowned out the creeps, who aborted their rally early. Perhaps because people of conscience outnumbered the racists 400:1 that day, 67 planned events by hate groups in 36 states have been scrapped. Did this act of resistance send a strong enough message to the Nazis so called "alt-right" that their message of hatred and division won't be tolerated?

Minority President Trump's nominee for chief scientist at the United States Department of Agriculture...isn't a scientist. His name is Sam Clovis, and he was Donald's campaign manager in Iowa. He was a right wing talk show host, is a climate change denier, a racist, a birther, and a homophobe. But other than that, he's awful. Could this blatantly incompetent nominee survive senate confirmation hearings? Chuck Schumer warned Donald to withdraw the "wildly unqualified" nominee. Will he?
