Federal judge has issued a significant rebuke of a core Mueller claim. Mueller claims that the IRA -- a Russian troll farm -- was the 2nd of "two principal interference operations" by Russian gov't. But as judge notes, Mueller's implied link between IRA & Russian gov't was false: pic.twitter.com/UyzApdP5BH
Tulsi now has 97,170 unique donors. Her daily rate of new donors has fluctuated day to day, with more than 800 yesterday, and about 500 in each of the two days before. She needs 657 per day until August 28 to reach the required 130,000 unique donors.
When I say that Turkey is openly defying U.S. sanctions, I don't mean it in one particular way.
I mean that Turkey is defying U.S. sanctions in four different ways.
It appears that Turkey is intentionally antagonizing Washington. As if they are daring Washington to do something about it.
Threats against Iran continue to ratchet, ratchet apace. Where will it all end? Only the gods know… They must know that insanity rules Washington and its allies, no? Not that this is a particularly new state of affairs, given that the US is the largest exporter of violence on the planet, and only the names of her allies change a bit.

Why I’m running for president
Oh goody. Now we have another rich asshole who will tell us plebs that we aren't allowed to have nice things because those nice things will cut into the profits of the Capitalist Politburo.
The automated email begins thusly:
Breaking news: Nervous Nancy has now proposed something which vaguely resembles human decency. Choke, gasp, wheeze. I can't believe I'm saying this but....Nervous Nancy demand Acosta resign
Thus, I can never again say that Nervous and is completely devoid of principle--or merely opportunism disguised as principle.

“For a number of years, the International Socialists Organization, once the largest Marxist group in the USA, held educational conferences either in Chicago or in various American cities. In 2004, I attended a plenary session of a regional conference at City College in New York, mostly to hear my old friend Peter Camejo who was the featured speaker alongside Ahmed Shawki, the disgraced former leader whose cover-up of multiple rapes in the ISO led to its dissolution this year.”
