This week’s Good News from the Resistance: Our stomachs were in knots all week over TrumpNoCare, and then came the public bullying between Rocket Man and The Dotard. It was easy to get pulled under by the daily headlines. And yet. Investigations, legislation and lawsuits — actions that will pay off in the long run — are moving in the right (left?) direction. Plus, there was John McCain, demonstrating that someone in the GOP has a conscience, or simply a vendetta against 45. We’ll take either. In this week’s Good News:
- What happened when Black Lives Matter showed up at pro-45 rally
- 45’s lawyers overheard by NYT reporter
- Jimmy Kimmel helps kill TrumpNoCare
- Tables turn on racist college student
- Oregon figures out how to register voters
- Mueller moves on 45
- Zuckerberg does the right thing
- ResistFest Santa Cruz
- Climate actions move forward, without 45
- The Resistance speeds up GOP retirements
- Sanctuary cities remain safe – for now
- Taking the Knee
- People making a difference: Resistance Leaders Ezra & Leah
- Take action: Keep up the heat to save Obamacare
