What do we do?

So many petitions to sign, so many letters to write, so many protests to be a part of.  What will work?  What do we do?

I still don't have the answer to that question, but I will continue to spread thoughts, ideas, action plans for the Trump Resistance.

I'm going to post something about the Electoral College vote that will occur next week.  I want to be clear that I think the chances of 35-40 REPUBLICAN TRUMP electors voting instead for Hillary Clinton are slim to none.  But engaging in the types of protests listed below makes it clear that we WILL NOT ACCEPT Trump as President; that the opposition is strong.  Because of this, I am sharing this post that came across my Facebook timeline earlier today:

#TreasonousTrump #PutinsPuppet #SecretCIA #RussianHackers 
"It became clear to me last night that this man is not only unqualified to be president, he's a danger to the republic. I do think the Electoral College should choose someone other than Donald Trump to be president. That will lead to a fascinating legal issue ... but I would rather have a legal problem — a constitutional legal problem -- then to find out the White House was now the Kremlin's chief ally." Rep. Jim Himes (D-Conn) House Intelligence Committee 
Hillary's Campaign Roars Back to Life! 
Currently Hillary is ahead by 2.85 Million votes or 2.1% (we may hit 3 million) - Hillary has received more votes than any white male whose run for President. 
Statement made by Hillary for America Chairman John Podesta:
“The bipartisan electors' letter raises very grave issues involving our national security,” Podesta said. “Electors have a solemn responsibility under the Constitution and we support their efforts to have their questions addressed.”
“Each day that month, our campaign decried the interference of Russia in our campaign and its evident goal of hurting our campaign to aid Donald Trump,” Podesta continued. “Despite our protestations, this matter did not receive the attention it deserved by the media in the campaign. We now know that the CIA has determined Russia's interference in our elections was for the purpose of electing Donald Trump. This should distress every American.”

Russian Oil, Russian Hacking, and Donald Trump

Let's put this together and make sure everybody knows and understands this:

The head of Exxon-Mobil, Tillerson, the man that Trump has reportedly pegged to be Secretary of State, was very much involved with and in favor of an Exxon-Russia-oil (Roseneft) deal. The Obama administration had nixed this deal due to Russia's invasion of the Crimea. The US under Obama, Kerry, and Clinton has taken a somewhat hard line by using sanctions against Russia and its expansionist desires. Now Putin will manage to fast-track that oil deal after all (and probably get rid of the sanctions) by backing Trump. Question: Is there a smoking gun? Is there any evidence of back door dealings between Trump people and the Russians either about the hacking or about this deal and the Exxon guy? We all heard Trump calling on hackers to look into Hillary Clinton, and we know something about Paul Manafort, but that's not the same as a smoking gun. If there was such a smoking gun, would the Repubs even investigate it?

More on all of this later, including relevant links...
