Stephen Miller, appalling and un-American author of blocked $18 Billion Muslim Ban

Trump lawyers stated no appeal in spite of Trump reading contrary lines in his act. How much tax dollars were spent by Trump defending a bogus unConstitutional executive order? How much time was tied up by the DOJ? The author worked for Sessions and continues to claim the ban block will be appealed. Just mean or uncaring about causing stress and injury to families coming here as children. Honest hard working peoples lives bullied by these swamp rats surrounding Trump.

The Cruel, Unusual, Botched. Blatant Violations, Muddled, Inexcusable Scott Pruitt

The Cruel and Unusual Execution of Clayton Lockett
The untold story of Oklahoma's botched lethal injection—and America’s intensifying fight over the death penalty

Both the attorney general, Scott Pruitt, and Governor Mary Fallin had elections coming up, and there were rumors that a Tea Party candidate might outflank Fallin on the right. Oakley believed they were worried about looking soft on crime.

Love Tom Price? Trump followed up with Mike Pence's Hoosier Medicaid Mauler, Seema Verma

Just when we thought having to deal with the challenge former Congressman Tom Price, now President Trump's HHS Secretary, was making it dangerous enough to grow older, the president adds on more potential woe for the poor.

Meet Seema Verma. The president's second Indian-American pick for and head of SVC, Inc.a private consulting firm specializing in Medicare/Medicaid has been picked to run the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS).

AMERICAS WELFARE BUMS

Quote a right wing blogger "Funding our Defense has led to hundreds of thousands, of well paying union jobs in this country. (Boeing, Northrop, McDonnell Douglas, Raytheon, General Dynamics, DuPont, to name a few large contractors)"

Even Nixon in his worst moments wasn't this unstable

A single day doesn't pass without yet another major league security embarrassment emanating from the most incompetent WH administration. No wonder the Russians stationed a spy ship off the Delaware coast. Even they can't believe their luck and have to keep a ship off our shores to take it all in when they could just as easily use other less obvious means of spying. And to what end? An all out attack? I doubt that because they'd get clobbered and they know it. Blackmail. And the price of this blackmail won't be seen or even detected right off the bat.

STANDING ROCK

All the tar sands oil shipped from Canada through the Standing Rock pipeline is to be shipped world wide to the highest bidder and all the profits are to remain in the pockets of Big Oil. This pipeline DOES NOT help make America energy secure. This is US federal and state governments using your tax money to violently oppress First Nations Peoples objecting to a pipeline that was originally slated to pass through Bismark North Dakota, but after white protests is now being diverted through tribal lands.

WHAT CAN PENCE OFFER TO SAVE THE OROVILLE DAM?

DUE TO HIS RADICAL EXTREME CHRISTIAN BELIEFS, I WOULD EXPECT HIM TO ASK GOD TO COME DOWN AND STOP THE WATERS FROM OVERFLOWING. OR PERHAPS HE COULD ASK GOD TO OPEN ANOTHER PATHWAY SO THE WATERS CAN DRAIN SOMEWHERE ELSE.

OR, HE JUST MIGHT THINK THAT GOD IS PUNISHING THE PEOPLE AS THEY ARE UNDESERVING LIKE IN THE GREAT FLOOD.

PLESE NOTE THAT HE HASN'T SAID A WORD ABOUT THIS DISASTER EITHER OR LENDED SUPPORT. S0ME CHRISTIAN HE IS.

Women's political movements

Thom is talking about women's political movement a bit today. I think that everyone should check out Women of Liberia Mass Action for Peace. It is a story that gives you hope for mankind. They nonviolently ended a civil war, got Charles Taylor convicted of war crimes, and it looks like they have brought back a republic government structure. The founder of the movement and another Liberian woman who is the first woman president in Africa shared in the 2011 Nobel Peace Prize.

TRUMP Americas HERO

Stop trying to play Trump as Americas hero. The guy who said he'd drain the swamp , just hired a half a dozen Wall Street Goldman Sach's shysters. His billionaire staff have more wealth combined than the bottom 100 million third of all Americans . His intention is to use his time in office to create the largest transfer of public money into the pockets of his billionaire class buddies.

Deportations. How can Trump have it Both ways?

Obama was our “deporter in chief” but Herr Trumpf is, apparently deporting Felons. That’s Great because let’s say someone only has $500 to kill a couple enemies so they pay their assassin to get here from Mexico, he/she commits the killings and then is given a free ride back home on the deportee bus..? Is that the take-away from this new policy? If someone is a violent felon – worthy of our fear – shouldn’t they be prosecuted and sent to prison? How can we allow Dangerous people not only to evade justice but actually assist

How Do You Have Freedom If You Don’t Have Healthcare?

Unless it's replaced with something better - like single-payer - repealing Obamacare will make life miserable for millions of Americans.
