**Photo – some public land wilderness that Trump appears ready to sell to the highest bidder. What do I, personally, find most hard-to-accept about our new President? It is his complete disregard for both the public lands of this great country, and the climate future of the planet. That’s all. May he soon be taken from us!!

*From Robert Reich: “Federal Judge David J. Hale has ruled against efforts by Trump’s attorneys to throw out a lawsuit accusing him of inciting violence against protesters at a March 2016 campaign rally in Louisville.

At that rally, Trump repeatedly said “get ’em out of here” before his supporters shoved and punched them.

Trump’s attorneys tried to have the case dismissed on free speech grounds, arguing that Trump didn’t intend for his words to be taken literally. But Hale noted that speech inciting violence is not protected by the First Amendment, and ruled that there is plenty of evidence that the protesters’ injuries were a “direct and proximate result” of Trump’s words.

“It is plausible that Trump’s direction to ‘get ’em out of here’ advocated the use of force,” Hale wrote. “It was an order, an instruction, a command.”

**It seems fairly certain that there’s no lack of stuff out there that could bring DT down. But what might he try, should his fate as President begin to look shaky? A coup attempt? A staged provocation? We best ready ourselves for such a tactic.

**Here’s another shot of public land that DT would dispose of!
