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.
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.

The founder of the movement and another Liberian woman who is the first woman president in Africa shared in the 2011 Nobel Peace Prize.
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.
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
