Unprecedented 'til Unpresidented

Alabama criminalizes abortion,
other states are following suit,
and a right wing supreme court
that doesn't respect precedent
may get to overturn Roe v. Wade

John Bolton's long wanted an Iran war
& pushes Trump who wants some war
to start a war with Iran in a build up
that looks just like the Iraq War playbook .

The White House defies House subpoenas,
may block McGahn and Mueller testimony,
Barr won't release the full report
& Don Jr cuts a deal for closed door hearings

Some of this feels like the oldest reruns
of deception, disruption & destruction --
and some is shockingly unprecedented
which is why someone needs to be unpresidented.

You need the cool company & liberal libations
of political camaraderie & conversation
at your local progressive social club.

Contemptible!

Trump claims executive privilege
to block the full Mueller report
while Barr continues to bar the truth
& defies Congress, skipping hearings.

They refuse to turn over tax returns,
try to block McGahn's revelations,
may obstruct Mueller's testimony
& are full-on in secrecy & stonewalling.

Meanwhile they seek to launch a war,
raising the drumbeat against Iran,
making threats about Venezuela
while waging a war on immigrants,
women's rights & freedom at home.

Now Dems may hold Barr in contempt.

Welcome to the club!
The rest of us found this criminal crew
contemptible a long time ago.

You deserve a drink
& a night of likable, liberal companions
at your local, progressive social club.

A May Day Mayday

Barr should be barred as AG & disbarred
for his lies and obstruction in service of a man
whose criminality and corruption
is unquestionably, unignorably impeachable.

Yet Trump continues his attacks:
filing a suit to take down the entire ACA,
creating a crisis to criminalize asylum-seekers,
repeating lies to stoke fear about abortions.

...as his administration seeks a new war
in Venezuela, Iran or where they can find it
to divert us from his legal woes & low polls
and feed his military industrial allies.

As we marked a May Day,
we need to be shouting "mayday!"
seeking help for our democracy & society
—from Dem leaders, courts, media,
& ultimately from the American voters.

Toast workers rights, immigrant rights
& ideas on the left that you know are right
at your local progressive social club.

Everyone's Biden' Their Time

Trump's stonewalling Congress,
Ordering his team to resist subpoenas,
Hoping by biding his time
He can outlast the Mueller fallout

House Dems aren't ready to impeach
Despite Trump's abuses of power,
Instead leaning on more hearings,
Biding their time, not charging ahead.

Whule Sanders, Warren, Harris, Buttigieg
& 16 others are running hard,
the 800 lbs gorilla who was biding his time
Has just made it official: Joe is in.

Seems like everyone was biden' their time ...
What will change now that it's Biden time?

Predict, pontificate, ponder, persist,
over political pints with pundit pals
at your local progressive social club.

Redaction Reactions

The redacted Mueller report proves
that ****** is ******* and ******,
that Barr is full of **********
& Trump's team of corrupt criminals
should be ********* once and for all.

Trump vetoes bipartisan efforts to end
US involvement in the Yemen crisis,
supporting inhumane Saudi actions
over basic humanitarian need.

He attacks immigrants at every turn,
Barr seeks to punish asylum-seekers,
Stephen Miller criminalizes refugees
& the GOP stands by in complicity.

Trump is a pro at provoking reactions
& with Barr in charge of DOJ, every action
has an equal and opposite redaction.

Now it's up to Democratic leaders,
grassroots people power
& the American voter to take action.

Share your redaction reactions,
inflection reflections & libation sensations
at your local, progressive social club.
