Building communities

East Tennessee finds itself lacking in strong atheist, agnostic,  and secular humanist communities.  We need to work together and build our own community and create strong social safety nets.

New York times report: Headline Trump Intensifies His Attacks on Journalists and Condemns F.B.I. ‘Leakers’

– Trump media blackout: The white house had an off camera press conference that excluded; CNN, NyTimes, LaTimes, and several others. They gave preference to ultra conservative and alt-right websites.

– Trump’s assault on the media is getting scary. He has said things like calling CNN a danger to the nation and saying that all the news outlets that don’t sing his praises are the enemy of the people.

-aside: Trump is not talking to you (liberals), he is talking to a specific sector and they know exactly what he means.

Examples: “drain the swamp” … the swamp is not corruption as liberals see it. The swamp is corruption as Trump’s people see it. The swamp is not corporate billionaires buying politicians. The swamp is the politicians that are against corporate billionaires. Generally the politicians that support union organizations. It is a ultra nationalist corporatism. His supporters see big business as the great catalyst for economic growth. And because of this they also see unions, regulations, worker’s rights, and raising minimum wage as barriers to this.

– This is the mark of autocracy.

CNN report: Headline ; Spicer cracks down on staffers leaks.

He pulled his staff into meeting in which he confiscated and searched their phones for evidence of leaks or use of encryption software.

Funny that this meeting was leaked after he told them don’t leak this meeting.
