The Propaganda Machine Is Working Overtime — Freedom Gas!

When reality comes to you with a bill you and you’re a right-wing ideologue, you don’t just accept the charges, you rebrand and move forward with confidence.
A different official is quoted as calling it "freedom gas" in the same press release. Amazing. pic.twitter.com/eTAqPMffrf

Cleantech efforts to avoid climate catastrophe are so much of a threat to the current US government that it is going on the offensive. Lying and suppressing information are not enough. People are starting to wake up and demand action. So, the Trump administration is reverting to the tried and true methods of propaganda.
Patriotism is always a good look when all else fails, so they think it can be used as a part of a strategy to keep the tide from turning against fossil fuels. However, lies, voter suppression, and moves towards authoritarianism are the antithesis of freedom.

THIS JUST IN: West Wing staff pondered removing Arizona from all maps of the the United States in the White House so Trump would not be reminded of John McCain.

Trump said Lindsey Graham's best friend John McCain was not a war hero, suggested Ted Cruz's dad was involved in the JFK assassination and gave out Graham's cell phone number. If these GOP cowards won't stand up for their own friends and family, how will they stand up for you?

As Philip K. Dick told us, “Reality is that which, when you stop believing in it, doesn’t go away.” So, how does “freedom” prevent runaway climate change? It doesn’t. This is a cheap ploy to appeal to the gullible.
Time for some Freedom Fries.
Raise your hand if you’re willing to march demanding Trump resign or face an impeachment trial. A big and long impeachment, because there’s so many crimes, so much treason, so much corruption. It’s on us to peacefully put a stop to this. Let’s do this. March on.🇺🇸 #TrumpResignNow
