    GOP madness Unbound...

    Paul Ryan warns that if Dems win, they’ll hold Trump accountable ".........What the retiring House Speaker seemed to suggest was that Democrats, if given any meaningful authority in Congress, would take steps to hold the president accountable for his actions. Or put another way, Ryan wants voters to back Republican candidates in order to ensure that the pro-Trump cover-up can continue on Capitol Hill. “Vote GOP in 2018,” the slogan effectively goes, “We’re against oversight and accountability for Republican presidents.”......
  2. "House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) yesterday announced that Republicans would be bundling a Planned Parenthood defunding bill in with their Obamacare repeal. Today, Planned Parenthood activists showed up to Ryan’s office with an 87,000 signature petition protesting the efforts to cripple the beloved reproductive healthcare bill. Instead of accepting it, the spineless coward had a team of six security guards remove them from the building.....

    Trump's Biggest Whoppers

    AP FACT-CHECK- "Illegal border crossings, as President Donald Trump measures them, have gone up since he took office, even as he speaks to audiences about a drop of more than 40 percent. That disconnect was among several that stood out over the past week as Trump opened up on the Russia investigation via Twitter, forsaking accuracy in the process, and made the false claim that he’s delivering the first big military pay increase in a decade. Meantime it turns out that Richard Grenell, Trump’s ambassador to Germany, got it wrong when he delivered the “shocking” news last month that Trump’s predecessors had never given German Chancellor Angela Merkel the courtesy of a tour of the private residence floor of the White House when she visited Washington.......

    America's Gun Culture...

    Armed citizen who shot Oklahoma gunman told worried crowd, 'I'm here to help' ......."I just can't understand being called a hero when someone's life was taken," he said. "I just did what I had to do. I'm very glad no innocent lives were taken but ultimately, there was a life taken." ----------------------------------------------- Shannon Watts‏Verified account @shannonrwatts May 26 Hey @NRA - The two men who got guns from their cars to take out the Oklahoma shooter were: 1) A former police officer and current security guard, 2) A member of the National Guard for two decades and who served in Afghanistan. Not. Average. Civilians.
  5. How guns became a part of American culture- "No other developed country embraces firearms the way ours does. The more we argue about them, the more it seems their mystique grows. But just how guns became part of our cultural DNA has been a long journey.........
  6. "1968" - The most turbulent time in modern American history (it's not now) CNN's Original Series Event "1968," a four-part miniseries, airs Sunday, May 27, and Monday, May 28, at 9 p.m. ET. (CNN)A president with low approval ratings. Tensions between the US and North Korea. Athletes protesting racial injustice. Bitter divisions threatening to rip our country's social fabric apart. Sound familiar? But we're not talking about 2018. All this happened 50 years ago, in 1968. Echoes of that year, considered by many the most turbulent in modern US history, can be found in today's headlines about President Trump, social protests and shocking acts of gun violence. Our country has changed immensely -- the internet, a black president, same-sex marriage -- since then. And yet, some things feel eerily similar. "Yes, it's a continuation," says Charles Kaiser, author of "1968 in America: Music, Politics, Chaos, Counterculture, and the Shaping of a Generation," about parallels between 1968 and now. "We're certainly still fighting many of the same battles."...........

    Trump's Biggest Whoppers

    ".....he wanted to know who the leakers were. Sadler then stunned the room: To be completely honest, she said, she thought one of the worst leakers was Schlapp, her boss. Schlapp pushed back aggressively and defended herself in the room. And in follow up conversations after the meeting, some of Schlapp’s colleagues also came to her defense. (In a prior meeting, she had said, "You can put this on the record: I stand with Kelly Sadler"). Sadler went on to name other people she also suspected of being leakers. The allegation — like a previous internal meeting to deal with leaking — ultimately got leaked to us. Be smart: Trump administration officials have told me that "X is a leaker" has in this White House become synonymous with "I don’t like X." Everyone knows the leaker accusation has become the most powerful weapon you can wield against somebody you don't like, especially to Trump. No one ever says "X leaked Y, and here's the evidence." It's just "X is a leaker.".......

    "I've snapped and plotted all my life. There's no other way to be alive, king, and fifty all at once. " --from what film?
  9. 7 Questions We Would Have Asked Donald Trump At His Canceled Press Conference- President-elect Donald Trump promised a press conference Thursday to clarify the role he would have with his international business entanglements after he becomes president. He canceled. The transition team said Monday that Trump is delaying his "announcement" until January. Later that night, Trump took to his favorite medium to go around the filter — Twitter — and made some news about his plans: It’s been 140 days since Donald Trump’s last press conference. In the meantime, he’s tweeted 1,461 times. Why does this matter?Unlike other ways of getting messages out, press conferences hold public officials more accountable to the American people because they have to answer questions in an uncontrolled environment.....
  10. Anyone actually read OR know what to do with these?? ------------------------------------------------- What You Should Do With All Those Privacy-Policy Emails Before You Delete Them "......these emails are coming from all over the place: record labels you bought an album from two years ago, that place where you booked a deep-tissue massage that one time, a sushi joint, the gym where you used to be a member. It’s the digital remnants of your consumer history, come back to remind you it exists. Specifically, it’s a reminder that all these places—online and brick-and-mortar businesses where you’ve registered an online account or used your credit card or were entered into a system for whatever reason—have some kind of data on you, and therefore you’re getting an email with updates to their privacy policy. It’s a moment to take stock of all the corporate relationships you didn’t even know you still had, to clean things up by closing some accounts and ending some subscriptions.......

    Immigration Policy?

    The 10 dead in #Texas immigrant-smuggling case just the latest of such tragedies.... "Nine immigrants smuggled in a tractor-trailer have died. They were among nearly 40 people found in the back of the truck parked outside a Walmart in Texas in what police are calling a horrific human trafficking case. Many of the several dozen survivors are in dire condition, suffering from heatstroke and dehydration after being trapped in the sweltering truck overnight. The tragedy has shined a fresh spotlight on the often deadly conditions that desperate migrants endure at the hands of smugglers and human traffickers. Others have died under similar circumstances before:..........

    Ted Lieu‏Verified account @tedlieu 30m30 minutes ago Dear @TheJusticeDept Sessions: Your new policy of separating children from parents is so cruel that even @realDonaldTrump wouldn't own up to it. Also, why did the Administration lose track of over 1,475 children & release some of them to human traffickers?
  16. Donald Trump’s Phone Conversation With the Leader of Pakistan Was Reckless and Bizarre- "...the relationship between India and Pakistan, South Asia’s nuclear-armed nemeses. Any world leader approaching the issue even obliquely must surely see the “Handle With Care” label from miles away, given the possibility of nuclear conflict. U.S. President-elect Donald Trump, however, doesn’t seem to have read the memo,... -Electing a president who doesn’t know what he’s doing carries real consequences.

    Racism in Trump's America

    Amid anti-immigrant sentiment, some Spanish speakers wary .......“I notice more now with this current government that people are more impatient and there’s more of a lack of understanding,” said Mucarsel, of Anaheim, California. “When you speak Spanish, they automatically judge you thinking you don’t speak English, and that is a huge ignorant idea.” Being multilingual in the United States brings advantages like job opportunities and social connections. But speaking something other than English in some public places also can risk drawing unwanted attention, as evidenced recently by widely viewed videos of a rant by a New York lawyer against restaurant workers and a Border Patrol agent in Montana questioning people for speaking Spanish......

    The Triumph of Donald Trump

    POTUS claims DOJ did not "contact me to tell me of the phony Russia problem." Wrong. Trump was warned on August 17, 2016 in his first intel briefing that Russia was trying to infiltrate his campaign. … --------------------------------------------------- warned by Obama & Sally Yates as well.......

DEMOCRATS ARE PROTECTING MS-13 THUGS. Bill Kristol‏Verified account @BillKristol 7h7 hours ago Bill Kristol Retweeted Donald J. Trump Needless to say, Trump can end what even he calls the "horrible" practice of separating parents from their children by executive action under current law. He does not need to wait for Congress to do anything.

    VoteVets‏Verified account @votevets 6h6 hours ago Yesterday, @realDonaldTrump LIED to troops about pay raises. Today, Trump LIED to America about his admin's own cruel policy to separate immigrant children from their parents. #LieGate is real. And it must be called out for what it is -- blatant lying.
