Republican Congressmen and Senators have been rocked by angry townhall protests. A group called Indivisible, some of whose leaders have some ties to George Soros and Barack Obama, appears to be largely responsible.


Washington Times said:
...........Indivisible gives its progressive followers nationwide a “practical guide for resisting the Trump agenda.”
It takes aim at Congressional members, urging activists to go to local town halls to demand their representatives listen to them, and report out if the member doesn’t. The guide tells the activists to spread out in the room, and to not give up the microphone until they’re satisfied with the answer.
“Keep the pressure on,” the guide details. “After one member of the group finishes, everyone should raise their hands again. The next member of the group to be called on should move down the list of questions and ask the next one.”
So who is funding the organization? That’s a good, and open question. As a recently formed non-profit, it hasn’t had to report out its donors yet.
Earlier this month, Indivisible told the Daily Signal that George Soros didn’t fund the group............However, many of its members have loose ties to Mr. Soros.
According to Matthew Vadum, senior vice president at the Capital Research Center at least three of the group’s five principals have direct ties to organizations funded by Mr. Soros.
Many have compared the raucous crowds to those of the Tea Party who dogged the Democratic Congress when Obamacare was going true. At the time, Speaker Nancy Pelosi dismissed them as "astroturf".

So are these protests just Astroturf (like "Occupy"), sore losers angry about the election of Trump, or a genuine popular movement against Trump? Or are they just another Occupy type anarchist group? Are they a front for the Democratic party? And if any of this is true, should GOP Congressmen cave into their demands, or dismiss them as what Pence yesterday called "liberal activists"?

Not a Trump (or Clinton) fan but so far he's merely implementing the policies he was recently elected on. Angry opponents are just that. Hardly a sign he's lost legitimacy or his past voters.

Busy fellow this George Soros. He's everywhere sure. If he isn't busy behind the Repeal the 8th in Ireland he is legging it around the US from town hall to town hall stirring up the natives.

Whether you agree with him on anything or not you have to admire the effort.

While watching Sky news interview 2 wealthy American housewives who are part of California's Trump ''resistance'' the other night made me wonder if part of the reason wealthy Californians are so angry about the potential deportation of illegal migrants is because they'll lose their cheap servants. America has replaced it's unpaid black slaves with badly paid brown faced illegal migrants. Without them there is nobody to clean the pools, maintain the gardens, clean the houses, iron the clothes, mop the floors, clean the toilets, do the grocery shopping, you get the picture.

Now if Carlos and Juanita get sent back to Mexico that means that wealthy Americans have a servant problem. White Americans from poor working class backgrounds are as unlikely to do that type of work as the poor white of Ireland are unlikely to do that sort of work here. As loud as they shout about diversity Mr and Mrs wealthy America aren't going to trust Dre and Shanika from the hood to work in their houses.
