This is why I am proud to have worked on both of Jerry Brown’s presidential bids.  This guy has always been way ahead of his time.  All the Democrats need to take a hard look at how we’re going to fight the fascist GOP that is crushing our democracy!

From the LA Times:  Support the media that will fight!

We’ve got the scientists, we’ve got the lawyers and we’re ready to fight,” Brown said to applause during a speech to the American Geophysical Union in San Francisco.

Brown reminded the crowd of the nickname he was given by a newspaper columnist in 1976, “Governor Moonbeam,” for his interest in a state-sponsored satellite.

Brown reminded everyone of California’s advantages over Texas when it comes to renewable energy.

“We’ve got more sun than you’ve got oil,” he quipped.

This is the fighting spirit we need!  Every time a Democratic Senator starts to get wobbly over fighting fascism, give them a call and let them know that we’re not going to give up our democracy as easily as they might, and if they won’t fight, we’ll get someone to replace them that will!!

INDEPENDENCE, CA - DECEMBER 09:  PA vintage photograph is displayed at Manzanar War Relocation Center at Manzanar National Historic Site on December 9, 2015 near Independence, California. Recent presidential campaign rhetoric against Muslims in the wake of terror attacks has drawn comparisons to World War II era incarceration of Japanese Americans. Manzanar War Relocation Center was one of ten internment camps where Japanese American citizens and resident Japanese aliens were incarcerated from 1942 to 1945 during World War II.

Carl Higbie: I know the ACLU is going to challenge it, and we’ve done it in the past with Iran back … back a while ago. We did it World War II with Japanese. Which, you know, call it what you will. May be wrong.

Megyn Kelly: Come on. You’re not proposing we go back to the days of internment camps, I hope. That’s the kind of stuff that gets people scared. …

Higbie: I’m just saying there is precident for it. I’m not saying I agree with it. But in this case—

Kelly: You can’t be citing Japanese internment camps as precedent for anything the president-elect is going to do.

Sure he can. He just did.

PLEASE WAKE UP PEOPLE!!!!

I have said this and people said I was paranoid and that he did not have the power to do this in this day and age. You all need to read more into the powers of what this man can really do with the executive orders that he will have access to. We need to rise up and protect ourselves before it is too late. We were complacent and let this hatred get too close to the white house now we only have a short period of time to stop this madness before all hell breaks lose and so many innocent lives are destroyed. This is a country of freedom in so many ways and right now that freedom is under attack on the home front and it seems as if our own soldiers are doing NOTHING to protect us and soon they will be obligated to turn against us which scares me so much more! What do we do when they are forced to rise against us? Who will save us? Will our allies come from across the seas like the many times we have stepped in for them in times of need? We need to treat homeland terrorist groups like these the same as we treat groups like Isis, there should be NO double standards based on skin color. We are all human beings and all bleed the same way and all breathe the same way therefore the president in his last day should put the military on red alert and seek out these groups and suppress them immediately!!!!

I beg of you all do the right thing please share this post with as many people as you can the truth needs to get out there!
