Listen to Children Who?ve Just Been Separated From Their Parents at the Border ? ProPublica

quote [ ProPublica has obtained audio from inside a U.S. Customs and Border Protection facility, in which children can be heard wailing as an agent jokes, ?We have an orchestra here.?

The desperate sobbing of 10 Central American children, separated from their parents one day last week by immigration authorities at the border, makes for excruciating listening. Many of them sound like they?re crying so hard, they can barely breathe. They scream ?Mami? and ?Pap? over and over again, as if those are the only words they know. ]

Trump and his supporters and enablers are a bunch of evil fucks who must be defeated.

In answer to knumbknutz has the crazo-nutbag-kookooferkokopuffs meter been turned up past 11 to 13.9 today?

quote [ In 51 minutes on the White House North lawn, President Trump served up a series of falsehoods, shortly before his former campaign chairman was sent to jail. ]

This is all coming down to a real test for the Justice Department of the US government. It is now time for the court to step in the ring with Trump.

113 Politicians Have Been Killed Ahead Of Mexico?s Election. There Are Still Two Weeks To Go.

quote [ Astonishing as these numbers are, they only tell part of the story: There are hundreds of candidates who have backed out of their races out of fear for their safety, and many others who have curbed their campaign activities. This poses a significant challenge to Mexico?s relatively young democracy, already crippled by systemic corruption and widespread impunity.2 ]

Dennis Hof, Nevada's most famous pimp, wins GOP primary

quote [ The owner of half a dozen legal brothels in Nevada has ousted a Republican state lawmaker running for re-election. "It's all because Donald Trump was the Christopher Columbus for me," Hof told the AP in a phone call. "He found the way and I jumped on it." Hof, who wrote a book titled "The Art of the Pimp," has dubbed himself "The Trump of Pahrump," and held a rally with longtime Trump adviser Roger Stone. ]

What did you get and what did you give away?

quote [ Among the consequences of Donald Trump's meeting with Kim Jong Un is that he agreed without apparent condition to end joint U.S./South Korean military exercises, a concession North Korea has sought for decades ]

And what did Trump get for his big wet kiss and sponsoring Kim's coming out party...Nada!

What did he mean when he said we would "End the War Games"? Not sure anybody knows that one including the US military.

America's 'strong relationship with government of Germany'... Oh FFS!

quote [ 'You have six months to educate Heather Nauert on the history and significance of Pearl Harbor before she cites it as an example of strong US-Japan relations' ]

Wow...just wow... okay, there's not a whole lot more that I can contribute to the foregoing assessment (Spoiler alert: State Dept person claims D-Day is evidence of a "long relationship")

Supreme Court gives Ohio right to purge thousands of voters from its rolls

quote [ In a 5-4 ruling, the U.S. Supreme Court gave Ohio a victory Monday in a fight over the state's method for removing people from the voter rolls, a practice that civil rights groups said discourages minority turnout. At least a dozen other politically conservative states said they would adopt a similar practice if Ohio prevailed.

The Supreme Court got this one wrong. The right to vote is not 'use it or lose it,'" said Chris Carson, president of the League of Women Voters of the United States. "This decision will fuel the fire of voter suppressors across the country who want to make sure their chosen candidates win reelection, no matter what the voters say." ]

It was always all about SCOTUS in 2016.

He shows up late, says his owners in Russia should be allowed back in the G7, insults our closest allies, says he may cancel trade to..everybody, leaves early, won't endorse G7 statement.

This is what a 50 State Policy looks like.

quote [ Democrats Outnumber Republicans In Texas Races
The party hasn?t run this many candidates in more than a decade. ]

You have to plant seed before you pick the corn.

?Don't judge each day by the harvest you reap but by the seeds that you plant.
