This is the beginning of what I hope will be a long, productive foray into speaking truth to power, whether that power is in the federal, state, or local governments, or in the power structures those governments uphold. For the time being my primary goals are going to be consolidating the events surrounding Donald Trump’s presidency and getting the word out about my local community organizing and activism efforts in the hopes of getting more citizens of Daytona Beach and Volusia County involved. There will also be a smattering of feminist news and commentary when the day’s events allow.
In the coming week I will post a recap of the first sixty days, as well as begin my routine postings about newsworthy events. I will be posting following any fast-breaking significant events, and will otherwise post amalgamations of the events of the past day or two reduced to short blurbs and commentary with sourced information for more in-depth reading. Finally, I will be posting a weekly round-up thread at the end of every week for those looking for a shorter briefing of only the most relevant information.
This may very well be one of the most pivotal political eras in United States history. Certainly it appears it will be remembered as one of the more inflammatory. As the President continues to try to set the narrative– one based less and less frequently in fact, we must all recognize our obligation to stay informed, get involved, and take action, and rise to meet it.
We are the majority.
We are the informed masses.
We are the guardians of liberty.
We are the defenders of the Constitution.
We are the resistance.
