Steve Bannon, the former executive chairman of the Breitbart News Network, as Trump’s “senior counselor and strategist.” This year, Breitbart hosted stories with titles such as “1001 Reasons Why Global Warming Is So Totally Over in 2016,” despite the fact that 2016 is now overwhelmingly on track to be the hottest year on record, beating 2015, which beat 2014, which beat 2013. Such stories do more than spread disinformation.
Is Betsy DeVos a religious zealot determined to save America’s children from their heathen public education? Is Betsy DeVos on a mission from God to destroy public education and to bring Christianity to all of America?
President Kennedy was rigorously questioned about his Catholicism and if his devotion to the Pope would have undue influence over his politics. Betsy DeVos should be put under the same scrutiny. Does she understand the meaning of separation of church and state and why it became so important to our constitution?
Donald Trump's move to put Exxon/Mobil's Rex Tillerson in charge of "our" US State Deptartment is actually The Most Honest appointment in modern US history! You can call Trumpf a hypocrite for not doing what he campaigned on -- but putting the largest Oil Company in charge of our US foreign policy IS what this country has been about for 50+ years. As much as I despise it, Why Lie..?
My wife and I have been struggling in recent days to not mention the name of our new "leader" at all during our waking hours (we can't help it if we shout it out during a nightmare), especially not in combination with the word "President," and especially not first thing in the morning, as it disrupts our appetite for breakfast. I was the first offender this morning.
If bigotry is only a symptom of a form of mental and emotional incompetence, are those of us not so afflicted required to treat them with the same respect we afford to all other alter abled? We each have our own limitations. With the wide use of the internet, there is no excusing willful ignorance and bigotry in those who are not so afflicted. The deliberate manipulation of bigotry for personal power can also be seen as a form of sociopathic psychopathology. All of this ignorant behavior needs to be resisted everywhere all the time by those who know better.
Don Siegleman received no help from Obama as Obama leaves the White House.
Don Siegleman's jailing just proves republicans are not above using the law as a political weapon and a tool of intimidation to silence anyone brave enough to attempt to speak out against the tyranny of the wealthy using elected officials as their personal weapons to commit treason and corrupt the US political system.
SPICER JUST GOT ON TV WENT ON AND ON ABOUT FAKE NEWS AND CROWD SIZE--NEVER ADDRESSED THE ISSUES PERTAINING TO WHY THE PROTESTORS WERE OUT THERE IN THE CROWDS.
SO TYPICAL OF TRUMP. ALL HE CARES ABOUT IS COMPETING WITH WHATEVER HAPPENS THAT OUTDOES HIM AND THEN LYING ABOUT IT TO MAKE HIMSELF LOOK BETTER.
With the exception of spending many millions- maybe a half billion- on moving the US Israel embassy to Jerusalem, and continuing to have each American family fork over several thousands of dollars ANNUALLY for welfare for Israel. Don’s all for it. Sounds like America Last. Perhaps the reason Israel does espionage in the US is to keep a lot of the Congress in line.
