As U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) urges the president-elect "to heed the views of progressives," protests continue in cities across the U.S. on Saturday, with participants driven by "outrage and fear" over Donald Trump's electoral victory.

Describing the continued demonstrations, the New York Times writes that "a national resistance among liberal activists and others who say they do not support his presidency is rising in response to the election in a way not seen in modern presidential history." They also, as Common Dreams reported, "continue amid a reported increase of abuse and assaults against Muslims, people of color, immigrants, women and girls, and the LGBTQ community, among other minorities."

"On Friday night," the Washington Post reports, "people marched in cities including New York, the District, Dallas, Miami, Orlando, Raleigh, and Portland—where, for a second night, demonstrations turned violent. More rallies were planned through the weekend in scattered cities."

Though they have been largely peaceful, one of the protesters in Portland who faced tear gas and flash-bang grenades was shot in the early hours on Saturday.

The life of Tom Hayden
 


October 23, 2016, 

Tom Hayden, a 1960s radical who was in the vanguard of the movement to stop the Vietnam War and became one of the nation’s best-known champions of liberal causes, has died in Santa Monica after a lengthy illness. He was 76.

Hayden vaulted into national politics in 1962 as lead author of a student manifesto that became the ideological foundation for demonstrations against the war.

Why Isn't Trump Junk? PDF Print E-mail

There ar a number of things that are not making sense about Donald Trump.  It seems that:

 

1- He can lie about everything without being called to task.

2. He can conduct criminal acts and not get charged with a crime.  

For example: Why is he not arrested for doing business with Cuba during a US embargo?  Any other citizen would be arrested.   If so, as a convicted criminal would he still be eligible to be President?

3 - He seems to be trying to brand the Trump name and for him it doesn't seem to matter what people say as long as they say Trump.  Perhaps "branding" is his real weakness?  Perhaps then we should rebrand him with "Dump the Trump" or "The Trump is junk".
