My head is spinning this morning, how about yours? Emotions of the entire spectrum seem to co-exist in my body at the same time.
Executive orders are being signed left and right without regard for their legality. Respected advisors are being excluded from National Security meetings while a seeming anarchist is replacing them (Steve Bannon reportedly a self-described Leninist ) in intelligence meetings. This quote from Time Magazine says it all:
Former National Security Adviser Susan Rice, who held the job until Jan. 20, was more blunt. “This is stone cold crazy. After a week of crazy,” she tweeted. “Who needs military advice or intell to make policy on ISIL, Syria, Afghanistan, DPRK?”

Stone cold crazy indeed. We have to get these guys out. PERIOD!
The crazy is at a scale I am not sure America has ever witnessed before. These folks have got to go before we end up in another World War II situation and worse!
I am seeing brightness in this darkness that has descended over our nation. What is incredibly hopeful to me is the utter outrage expressed by Americans who are not only feeling their outrage, but acting on it. The fact that Speaker of the House Paul Ryan turned off the fax machine, phones, etc at the White House because he was getting so many calls, messages, etc is IMPACT! Frustrating response, but IMPACT regardless.
The protests that have broken out to stop the ban on Muslim Immigration and the lawyers who volunteered their time at the airports was tremendous and got incredible results with the stay that was ordered by the Federal Court Judge.
And the protests continued beyond Saturday and will continue. 2000 people show up yesterday at the Portland Airport, also protesting the ban. That is quite a crowd for the Jetport!
The bottom line for me is this. Steve Bannon has got to go. Trump has got to go. This administration is going to seriously destroy our country and take it over in a way we have not seen before.
WE NEED TO GET THEM OUT!
Keep calling your senators, writing those letters, signing those petitions, stay informed, talk to your friends about what is going on. We cannot let America crash and burn while our administration is playing a calculated game of Russian Roulette.
