The @womensmarch is a good time to remember the journey that we’re on. The day after Trump’s Inauguration, millions of people marched across the country. Then, 6,000 women signed up to run for office. We're finally starting to see more women in power— let's keep going. #WomensMarch

Thousands gathered Saturday for the Women’s March on Washington and at similar demonstrations throughout the country in cities such as New York, Los Angeles and Denver. The annual protest burst into the national consciousness in 2017, when it inspired millions to take to the streets in Washington and across the globe. Read more by clicking the link in our bio.

How a Reporter Discovered the Doctored Photo From the 2017 Women’s March

The National Archives had blurred protest signs critical of President Donald Trump.

It seems with the outrage, they have corrected it…

And with that in mind, we see how tRump administration corrupts everything.

With regards to the latest Space Farce news…if y’all didn’t see the official “new uniform” photos released the other day:

Many tree species live for hundreds of years; others, including the sequoias, survive for thousands. Bristlecone trees, like those in California’s Ancient Bristlecone Pine Forest, can last almost indefinitely. For millennia, the bristlecones have remained resistant to fire, harsh weather and soil conditions, and insect threats. “I get a chill from standing next to something that’s been living in the same place for 5,000 years,” one scientist said. “We can’t begin to comprehend the mechanisms of birth and death on that scale.” Minute changes in the tree-ring record make bristlecones an exceptionally useful source of data about changing conditions on earth, and that data shows that the trees have also survived hot spells: in 4000 B.C., during the mid-Holocene period, the earth was about one degree Celsius warmer than it is today. But it is on track to get hotter than that. Can these ancient trees, which John Muir once described as “irrepressibly and extravagantly picturesque,” withstand climate change?

Among the many apocalyptic scenes from the Australian bush fires has been the presence of explosive, towering clouds appearing in the skies above the fire zones of southeastern Australia. These clouds are fire-generated thunderstorms. Their presence is an indication that a fire is exhibiting extreme behavior, such as spreading quickly beyond containment lines, switching its direction of movement, and even whipping up fire whirls and full-fledged fire tornadoes. The fires have been so intense that they’ve lofted smoke particles all the way into the stratosphere, in part through the clouds that in some cases look more like explosions. Once in the stratosphere, which is the layer of the atmosphere above where most weather occurs, in the troposphere, these particles can travel thousands of miles and even influence regional and global climate.

Sounds like a reasonable way to explain tRumps latest war crime… (Obviously, I’m being sarcastic here…)

This Iran “mess” is serious:

The Word from Iran…

So many comments on that thread run along the same line. That Iran is welcome to tRump…as well as many of his top enablers, like Moscow Mitch, Steve Miller, Barr and Pompeo.

I would also like to add one more…Chuck Todd!

Don’t forget that while the world is raging, there is a real rage of fire in Australia:

This isn’t a filter. This a person filming outside their home in Australia. This is our planet on fire. This is our house on fire! Do whatever you can to lessen your impact on nature. Understand that you don’t have to be perfect. We need millions making sustainable choices imperfectly. If you are not working toward good choices for the future and our planet you are helping it burn. It’s as simple as that. Stop smoking. Stop littering. Use a Reusable Coffee Cup. Walk. Recycle. Meatless Meals. Use aReusable water bottle. Paperless billing. Pick up litter. Buy local. Buy secondhand. Donate. Give. There are so many ways to make an impact. Pray for all those loosing everything in wildfires in Australia and all over the world. There is no neutrality.

Sunday Reads: Don’t bitch to us…

With all the bullshit lately about fucking Bernie Sanders…and since the one person who could stand up to tRump has/was left to drop out (Kamala)…to where we are seriously looking at a old white guy (Biden)…to wit, do we honestly think the elections are actually “secured” anymore (Putin)…

I feel that when tRump is re-elected, we here can tell all those news media assholes, BernieBros, Biden Shills, Tom Perez and the rest of the damn fools…

Hey! You listen to me, wacko.

See this fist?

I’m about ready to use…

Now sit down and shut up!

Mole’s right, Peggy.

Bitch at the trees.
