Donald Trump’s willingness to embrace Russian disinformation was one of the reasons Russia’s interference in the 2016 election worked, the Senate panel investigating the president’s alleged ties to the country heard on Thursday.
March 31. Gee, that's tomorrow. And every year since 2010 it has been International Transgender Day of Visibility.
TDOV aims to bring attention to the collective accomplishments of trans people around the globe and to the need for trans liberation. We are here to fight transphobia and cissexism by empowering the trans community worldwide!
Eighty year old warmonger and war criminal, make no mistake about that, John McCain, a perfect example of why our political system must be changed, continued his insane quest for a special place in hell.
I have too many questions and "wonderings" around this subject. I could use help sorting through them.
I'm positive that most people are not familiar with the terms of the Fair Housing Act, which also goes by the identification of Title VIII of the Civil Rights Act of 1968. It is supposed to be enforced by HUD...but that requirement did not foresee the Trump Administration.
The key to the charge that the Russian government hacked the DNC server "to undermine public faith in the US democratic process, denigrate Secretary Clinton, and harm her electability and potential presidency" has always been based on the findings of the private firm Crowdstrike.
Medicare-for-All is not a panacea for many of the myriad medical problems. Some of these things exist in those countries that do have universal health coverage. In the past I have written about some of these things such as Electronic Health Records (EHR). To day we will discuss the administrative burden of running a medical practice, regardless of who pays.
The previous offering in this series was about cancer, a thing that once was rather academic but is now very personal. This piece is about my old friend pain and now it probably will be with us always. I follow this with a diatribe concerning the lack of skeptical thinking about an unpopular topic.
Some thoughts arising from:
Americans unable to separate politics from reality an essay by gjohnsit on the FP.
I have no doubt Trumps believes in his own myths, bigly!
He is so super-smaht that nobody is smahter, hugely!
Couple this with his belief in the art of the con [deal] then we have one easily manipulated individual.
Read any western news media outlet and you'll find the Baltic nations trembling in fear of the Russian Bear. For example:
Lithuania prepares for a feared Russian invasion
Latvians ready to defend their country in the underground if necessary
A very empty and sick man has been given power to enough to ensure the extinction of our species. An entire Nation allowed him to have this power. Many in that Nation are foolish enough to excuse themselves because they did not vote for him. It is this level of lack of understanding that made him president.
With respect to the emails of the Democratic National Committee and John Podesta, Her Presidential Campaign Chair, I am focused upon only: (1) the First Amendment; (2) the lack of integrity of "our" government and "our" media; and (3) the sheepleness and/or disinterest of many too easily-duped/led Americans. (None of us. Other Americans.) Therefore, this essay assumes that the Russian government ordered hacking of the computers of the DNC and Podesta.
Progress takes time, baby steps. If you want something, you have to start at the bottom and work your way up. That's the way Bernie Sanders sees it with health care for Americans. Instead of demanding a single payer health care system NOW, like that described in HR 676, a legitimate single payer plan that now has 72 cosponsors in Congress, Bernie thinks it's "prudent" to improve Obamacare first by adding a public option to it, to "work toward" Medicare for all.
Occasionally I visit old sites where I've been bumped and banned from, just to check out their current reality. These infrequent visits, unfortunately, pretty much confirm my view of the rump Democratic Party. They have learned nothing.
Exhibit A today is a post by "Doug!" at Balloon Juice asking for donations to the campaign of Jon Ossoff for Tom Price's old seat in the Georgia 6th District.
Some in the media are reporting that Trump handed Merkel a "bill" for 300 billion for U.S./NATO war and imperialism spending. The White House is saying that is not true but it doesn't matter, the narrative is out there and the people are swallowing it.
The CBSN Originals documentary, “Gender: The Space Between,” debuts on CBSN Monday, March 27, at 8 p.m. ET and will be available afterwards on CBSNews.com.
Roger Severino most recently was director of the DeVos Center for Religion and Civil Society at the Heritage Foundation, where he concerned himself with "religious liberty, marriage and life issues." But the Trump Administration has been staffing itself with Heritage people, so Severino has been chosen to be director of the Office of Civil Rights at HHS.
(Small editor note: some of these links are probably a repeat from previous posts, but I'm sharing this with friends outside C99 who haven't seen those posts. So that would be the reason. Some of them... well some of them deserve a repeat anyway.)
Americans? Democrats? Republicans? Obama? Trump? The Koch brothers?
First off, I would like to thank my inspiration for this article or essay or rant, whatever to the following:
1. CS in AZ whose post about Ryancare (AKA Trumpcare, AKA Death panels for the sick) provided the primary inspiration.
Now a strictly military action.
The Pentagon under President Donald Trump is enjoying greater freedom to run its wars the way it wants -- and not constantly seek White House approval on important decisions.
Just when you think you have a solid grasp on reality . . . The handle falls off.
