    [snip]That’s where the mayor (declared) to a cheering crowd that Charlottesville was a “capital of the resistance.” Signer’s stand that Jan. 31 was in response to the Trump administration’s restrictions on travel from terrorism-prone countries. “These folks couldn’t run a two-car parade much less policies affecting the rights and lives of millions of people, and that is why I am here today to declare that Charlottesville, the historical home of Thomas Jefferson, is a capital of the resistance,” Signer said.

    A Marxist, a Venezuelan diplomat and an illegal alien headlined a meeting of organizers of the Trump resistance as they announced their plan to shut down Chicago on Saturday and Washington, D.C. on Inauguration Day. The Chicago branch of Act Now to Stop War and End Racism (ANSWER) met in Chicago’s northwest side neighborhood of Albany Park to plot their next move in their resistance of the Trump presidency. Chicago ANSWER was one of the radical leftist groups that helped to organize anti-Trump protests when his campaign tried to hold a rally in March; that rally was canceled after protesters...

    The call from the Left is to “resist” a “Fascist America,” which is supposedly the direction the United States is taking under President Trump. Among other things, leftists regularly accuse President Trump and members of his administration of anti-Semitism. Yet one of the leaders of the “resistance” movement, and a co-organizer of the next women’s protest on March 8th is Rasmea Yousef Odeh, a convicted Palestinian terrorist. Odeh had participated in bombings in Israel nearly 50 years ago, one of which resulted in the killing of two Israeli students. Now she is advocating militant resistance in the streets of the United States. For...

    Here’s the left’s next great idea for bringing down President Trump: another women’s march. Which means another public instance of Trump haters shouting slogans to one another and mistaking it for constructive politics. What progressives need to defeat Trump is outreach, but all they have is outrage. On March 8, organizers seem to be aiming for a different vibe than the librarians-in-pussy-hats element that made the first women’s march after Trump’s inauguration so adorable. Instead of milling around Washington, organizers have in mind a “general strike” called the Day without a Woman. In a manifesto published in The Guardian on...

RESIST groups are forming "Rapid Response" teams to warn people if ICE Agents are seen in the area.

  • The Anti-Trump Resistance Has a New Plan to Combat Gerrymandering

    Call it the Resistance 2.0. Three liberal groups that launched in the chaotic aftermath of Donald Trump’s 2016 election — Arena, Run for Something and Swing Left — are teaming up for the 2020 campaign season. But their goal isn’t specifically to oust Trump. They’re joining forces to tackle the unsexy but hugely consequential problem of gerrymandering. On Tuesday, founders for the three groups unveiled the Grassroots Redistricting Project, a joint effort to flip state legislative seats from Republican to Democratic and win majority control of at least one chamber in nine states around the country. The goal is to...

    For some people, Nevada Rep. Susie Lee said, the opportunity to drive on repaved highways, cross repaired bridges and fly out of modernized airports isn’t worth the political implications of a major infrastructure bill. “I’ve been told, ‘You don’t want to give Donald Trump a win on this,’” Lee, a Democrat, told an audience this morning at the Four Seasons Hotel Las Vegas. But even though the passage of a major bill would give Trump a stump point for the 2020 election, Lee said, the need for infrastructure spending outweighs partisan politics. “This isn’t a Republican-Democrat thing. This is an...

    William F. Weld is not likely to become our 46th president. But he was here in New Hampshire, no other Republicans were and that was something. “I think it’s important to at least call out the current incumbent of the White House on his simply amazing behavior, and for the pettiness, his vindictiveness and the unreconstituted meanness he displays,” Weld was telling the crowd who had turned out to see him on a rainy Sunday afternoon in March at a house party in the town of Dover. Fergus Cullen, a former chairman of the state Republican Party, was hosting the...

    House Democratic leaders scrapped a scheduled Wednesday vote on a budget measure backed by Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., amid opposition from left-wing members of the caucus. The measure would have raised limits on discretionary spending for both the Pentagon and domestic agencies, but leaders of the Congressional Progressive Caucus (CPC) pushed to allow billions more in spending on domestic programs. An amendment offered by CPC co-chairwoman Pramila Jayapal, D-Wash., would have added $67 billion to spending limits for nondefense programs over the next two fiscal years. Jayapal's amendment would have also capped defense and nondefense spending at $664 billion each...

    Valerie Jarrett, a senior White House adviser to former President Barack Obama, writes in her new book that she still hasn’t accepted President Trump won the 2016 election. "Since the night Donald Trump became president of the United States, I’ve been going through the five stages of grief, sometimes all five in the same day,” Jarrett writes in Finding My Voice: My Journey to the West Wing and the Path Forward. "In the beginning, denial and anger were high on the list; I still haven't embraced acceptance,” she writes. Jarrett, a longtime adviser to Obama and his wife Michelle, said...

    Since the election of President Donald Trump in 2016, we have experienced a growing trend of once fringe activist groups who are now the leaders of the Democratic Party refusing to accept the results of his election, and subsequently the elections of other prominent Republican governors and members of Congress throughout our land. Even elections where it was obvious the Republican won, Democrats have demanded costly recounts and done everything in their power to destabilize the situation to the point of undermining our democratic republic.

    Her code name was “Hedgehog,” an homage to a “tough animal that even a lion would hesitate to bite,” as a friend once said. And like a hedgehog, which appears cute and nonthreatening but can roll into a tight ball deploying dangerous quills when challenged, Marie-Madeleine Fourcade had an unexpected tough side. The young French woman headed one of the most important resistance networks during World War II and oversaw the collection of crucial intelligence that helped turn the battle’s tide. And yet she remains virtually unknown — in large part, because of her gender. “Nobody really remembers her, and...

    USA Today reports a wave of protests have been planned from New York to California and Texas to oppose the president’s national emergency declaration. Seriously, is there any organization more misnomered than  Founded in 1998 to protest Bill Clinton’s impeachment at the hands of the evil Republicans, they’ve never gotten over it, never moved on. They exist to protest, and they decide when and what you will protest. Sadly, this protest was cancelled, due to the government not being shut down on January 29th, 2019They are much better funded now (shoutout to George Soros!) and can afford to...

    Washington, D.C. Antifa leader Joseph “Jose” Alcoff, also known as “Chepe,” was arrested and charged with multiple felonies in Philadelphia on Jan. 10 in connection to the Antifa mob attack against two Marines in November. Alcoff faces 17 charges, including multiple counts of aggravated assault, ethnic intimidation, conspiracy and terroristic threats, and one count of robbery while inflicting serious bodily injury. An affidavit filed in the case reveals that The Daily Caller News Foundation’s reporting on Alcoff’s connection to violent Antifa groups was an integral factor leading to his arrest.

    As a person of Polish heritage with a deep appreciation of the bravery and heroics of the Polish Home Army and associated groups during WW2 it’s been irritating to watch the American Left pick up the term “Resistance” and take it as their own. Real resistance has a cost. Real resistance is, by definition, an act of desperation by a conquered people. Keith Olbermann ranting on cable TV is not resistance. SIRUS-XM’s “Progress” rebranding itself “Home of the Resistance” is merely pathetic LARPing. For all the fake-fear that the Left claims to feel since Trump won a year ago, the...

    President Trump said late Wednesday that he would deliver his State of the Union address after the ongoing partial government shutdown is over. "As the Shutdown was going on, Nancy Pelosi asked me to give the State of the Union Address," Trump wrote in a tweet. "I agreed. She then changed her mind because of the Shutdown, suggesting a later date. This is her prerogative - I will do the Address when the Shutdown is over." Trump clarified earlier statements suggesting he may do an “alternative” State of the Union, writing that he was not seeking an alternative venue because...

    New Jersey is following California’s lead by adopting new sanctuary state-like rules regarding how its local law enforcement agencies will cooperate with Immigration and Customs Enforcement. It’s part of blue state America’s ongoing war on the Trump administration, flipping them off whenever they can, especially when it comes to immigration (via NJ 101.5): More than a year after New Jersey voters elected a governor who campaigned on a platform of protecting the state's immigrant residents, including those in the country illegally, the state's top prosecutor released a list of rules governing cooperation by state and local police with federal immigration...

    WASHINGTON — At workplaces across the United States, it is routine for Americans’ conversations to turn to President Trump — whether his policies are good, whether he should be impeached, what to think about the “resistance.” Some drink from MAGA mugs; others tape cartoons to their cubicle walls portraying Mr. Trump as a Russian quisling. But roughly two million people who work for the federal government have now been told that it may be illegal for them to participate in such discussions at work — a pronouncement that legal specialists say breaks new ground, and that some criticized as going...
