dreamers daca trump lies hardened criminals
Pres. Donald Trump took to Twitter for his daily morning lunacy, and this time he attacked DACA kids, also known as DREAMers. These are children who were brought here as children by their undocumented parents, and they've benefited from the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA). In a Tweet Tuesday morning, Trump described these young people "hardened criminals" and said...
The walls are closing in on Donald Trump. Not only is the impeachment inquiry moving so swiftly House Democrats anticipate an impeachment vote by Christmas. Last week Trump was dealt another blow when New York Supreme Court Judge Saliann Scarpulla ordered he pay two million dollars to settle a claim he used his theoretically eleemosynary Donald J. Trump Foundation as a...
Last year, news broke about evidence confirming Russian buyers used Facebook advertising as propaganda leading up to the 2016 presidential election. In response, Facebook presented Congress 3,000 Russian-purchased ads through 470 phony pages and accounts intended to exploit America’s racial divisions. Facebook said at least $100,000 was spent for this purpose, a mere fraction of its political advertising during the 2016 campaign. This motivated the House Intelligence Committee last November to release...
In June of 2015, Donald Trump stood in the White House Rose Garden and announced the United States’ withdrawal from the Paris Climate Accords. So much has transpired the past two years, it's easy to forget. Yet on Monday, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo announced Trump sent his withdrawal letter to the United Nations, initiating the withdrawal process set to be...
While the Missouri state government sights in its crosshairs the St. Louis Region Planned Parenthood, the last operational women's reproductive clinic in the state, health director Randall Williams admitted last week the health department had been maintaining a spreadsheet of Planned Parenthood patients containing personal information including the date of their last menstrual periods. According to the Kansas City Star, which broke...
Donald Trump is moving. No, not out of the White House. Not yet.  (It's coming.) Like millions of septuagenarians, he's relocating to Florida because New York is just too damn expensive. According to documents filed with the Palm Beach County, Fla. Circuit Court, Trump completed a “declaration of domicile,” changing his primary residence from 721 Fifth Avenue in Manhattan to his Mar-a-Lago residence...
Have you ever heard the saying, "Loose lips sink ships"? Donald Trump has a lot of bad qualities. But loquaciousness might be among his worst. A president must possess an enormous degree of restraint with sensitive information. One slip up can send the stock market reeling--or worse. So, when a president stands before the nation to announce a secret U.S. military operation intended to...
https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1131529223489892352 Donald Trump has repeatedly vilified the "do-nothing" Congress. He might genuinely believe Congress is "doing nothing." But what about the average American? Is he or she even aware of how many bills the Democratic-controlled House of Representatives has passed since taking back the majority in January? Are you? The answer is 213. Voting reforms, criminal justice, prescription drug prices, preexisting conditions, veterans issues--all saw legislation...
U.S. Magistrate Judge Sallie Kim handed down a contempt of court ruling for United States Education Department Secretary Betsy DeVos on Thursday. Earlier this month, Kim ordered a lawsuit to go “full-steam ahead” after the DeVos-led Education Dept. was found guilty of violating an Obama-era court order requiring the now-defunct Corinthian College to stop collecting loan payments from 16,000 former students. The...
Donald Trump's vulgarity and divisiveness at a recent rally in Minneapolis, Minn. garnered extensive media coverage. Yet another aspect of Trump's first rally since House Democrats opened an impeachment inquiry getting little coverage is how Minneapolis is preventing winding up on the list of cities left footing unpaid security bills. Defending his demand the Trump campaign pay for its half-a-million dollar...

In 2011, Donald Trump tweeted the following: https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/141604554855825408?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw Nearly a year later, he followed with: https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/255784560904773633?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw Two weeks later, Trump tweeted: https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/260421157201784832?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw This indicates a lot about how Donald Trump thinks the way presidents win re-election. Although Trump's prognostication about Barack Obama starting a war with Iran was incorrect, Trump is planning on doing what he accused Obama of intending now that the House of Representatives...
"I’m not sending anyone to jail yet, but it’s good to know I have that ability." This is what U.S. Magistrate Judge Sallie Kim reportedly told Education Department lawyers last week about Education Secretary Betsy DeVos. Kim added: "There have to be some consequences for the violation of my order 16,000 times." That order came during the Obama administration, involving 335,000 former Corinthian...
Donald Trump just proved once again why the United States under his regime cannot be trusted. In what the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) and partner Kurdish militia, YPG, have characterized as a “blatant betrayal,” Trump decided back in December to announce pulling American soldiers out of Northern Syria, abandoning the Kurdish forces whom we have for the past five years...
Some day, people are going to read accounts of this and assume it's fiction. After all, who would believe in 2019 C.E.--the "sophisticated" 21st century--there would be a leader of a civilized, technologically advanced economic superpower who seriously proposed prohibiting foreign "invaders" entry to his country by building around his country a moat filled...
Then they came for the homeless. Under the guise of "environmental violation"--citing needles and waste--the Trump administration has threatened to use police to remove the homeless. Last month, Trump told a pool reporter aboard Air Force One that the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) would within a week put San Francisco, Calif. on notice because of supposed used hypodermic needles flowing through...
Donald Trump is drowning. And what does one do when he's drowning? He flails around for anything to prevent him from going under. Last week's news of Trump’s treasonous conversation with Ukranian President Volodymyr Zelensky rocked the political milieu--despite the fact we shouldn't be surprised Trump is once again soliciting foreign actors for his own political gain, as he did in 2016. So should...
One week ago, more than 4,500 climate strikes rallied across 150 countries ahead of this week’s U.N. Climate Action Summit for the purpose of holding lawmakers accountable for aggressive action on climate change's imminent threat to humanity. Considering the United States is the only country on the planet with a political party (Republican) that makes climate science denial an official position,...
The Trump administration can't get out of its own way. Its complete meltdown over House Democrats' decision Tuesday to open a formal impeachment inquiry of Donald Trump is evident in its carelessness in conducting simple tasks. Amid the growing furor over Trump's treasonous conversation with Ukranian President Volodymyr Zelensky, the White House inadvertently sent congressional Democrats talking points intended for Republicans. As...
Clinical psychologist and founder of the Climate Mobilization Project, Margaret Klein Salamon, stated: “Americans are finally beginning waking up to the existential threat that the climate emergency poses to our society.” She added: “It’s young people that have been primarily responsible for that.” As the climate is changing, so are the winds. And it is this country’s youth leading that change. Leading the charge is...
