That same evening, the Democratic Socialists of America marched on the home of Alaska Sen Lisa Murkowski (R-AK), who is believed to be a crucial swing vote on the current Trumpcare bill known as the "Better Care Reconcilation Act."The Democratic Socialists of America are demanding single-payer healthcare but said bluntly that the existing Affordable Care Act is much to be preferred to the mess that Trump is proposing.

On January 20th (J20), the Metropolitan Police Department (MPD), indiscriminately kettled and arrested over 230 individuals at a first amendment assembly.  Then, on April 27th, the US Attorney’s office (USAO),  led by Jenny Kerkhoff, secured a supersceding indictment of at least eight identical felony charges against each of the just over 200 individuals, thus tying up hundreds of folks and their support networks for months, if not years, of court battles and proceedings.Adding insult to injury, in the cour

These infrared cameras appear to be the privacy-busting Automatic License Plate Recognition cameras that MPD has installed in a few places around DC. They appear to be near-new devices, implying a spread of the cameras beyond their original locations in such places as the I-395 tunnel under the US Capitol.It is suggested that drivers who regard police databases as a threat avoid the I-395 tunnel and all of its approaches, NY Ave between 9th st NW and N Capitol St, and now Mass Ave between 9th st and N Capitol st as well, plus other nearby streets.

On the 27th of May, US Park Police, some in SWAT uniforms shut down a Black Pride event at Malcolm X Park. Other Black Pride events still going on.

The brown shirted "suspected neo-Nazi" who harassed an activist at the Mayday protest on Freedom Plaza has been identified as an undercover cop. He and another undercover cop in similar dress were seen together at the outhouse where pigs rooted through feces to recover a cell phone. The brownshirted undercover who was mistaken for another kind of brown shirt attempted without success to induce an activist to discuss his case with bald-faced lies about the case. The lies told were consistent with those being used by open Nazis and "alt-right" closeted Nazis against the same activist.

On the 14th of April, the "Tax March Chicken" appeared at Trump Hotel on the eve of the April 15th Tax March. Both the Tax March Chicken and the April 15th march are demanding that Trump release his tax returns so people can see what he is hiding.

On Monday, the 27th of March, the MD General Assembly gave final approval to legislation permanently banning gas fracking in MD. The bill now moves to the governor's desk for signature. Given that it was support from Gov Hogan (under intense public pressure) that got the bill moving in the Senate, the governor is expected to sign the bill into law. This will make MD the 3rd state to ban fracking, in direct defiance of Trump's pro fossil fuel agenda.A great deal of interference against the Trump regime is possible in exactly this way. State bans on fracking.

The warm February and early March in DC this year was followed by snowflakes and a hard freeze just four days before the cherry blossoms were forecast to peak(70% bloom). Those blossoms that were the earliest to open (about half) were killed by the cold and many of these still hang from the trees after turning brown. The other half were not so far along, survived, and are not open. This video shot March 25, the day the blossoms were said to reach peak this year.
