Disturbing #WhereAreTheChildren update.

Earlier today, HHS denied me @SenBlumenthal @RepJoeCourtney the ability to visit a child separated from their family who is being housed w a non-profit in our state.

The perverse secrecy of child separation should concern us all.

HHS’s excuse was that we need to give 14 days notice. What?? 14 days of forced separation from your parent can traumatize a kid for life. And we aren’t asking to see nuclear codes - we just wanted 10 min to make sure the child is ok.

The lack of transparency from the Administration, and the lack of giving a crap from Republicans in Congress, is so deeply disturbing. These are little children - and their lives are being changed forever by this unspeakable trauma.

Noank Community Services is an amazing organization and this child is much better off here than in a prison on the border. They are doing their best in a bad, awful situation.

I'm worried. My 1 yr old grandson is at my house. He does nothing for himself, pays for nothing, cries when he doesn't get his way, throws tantrums, and wears diapers that I have to change. I'm afraid this kid is a Democrat! Hope he outgrows it.

Or maybe he will grow up to be a politician who takes $50,000 from a Qatari lobbyist and then tweets praise for Qatar.

I wouldn't worry about that. He's far more genetically likely to grow up into a dog murderer than a Democrat.

G.M. Says New Wave of Tariffs Could Force U.S. Job Cuts #PleaseStopWinningSoMuch #SeriouslyPlease

G.M. Says New Wave of Tariffs Could Force U.S. Job Cuts

https://www.nytimes.com/2018/06/29/business/automakers-tariffs-job-cuts.html

General Motors warned Friday that another wave of tariffs being considered by the Trump administration could force the company to scale back its business and cost American jobs.

In comments submitted to the Commerce Department, the automaker said that the tariffs, if approved, could drive individual vehicle prices up thousands of dollars, stifling demand. Such costs would need to be borne either by consumers or the company.

Last month, President Trump ordered an investigation into whether imported cars and automotive components could pose enough of a national security risk to warrant tariffs of as much as 25 percent. If he goes ahead, it would intensify a global trade war that has engulfed allies and adversaries. In recent months, the administration has imposed tariffs on imported steel and aluminum, along with measures targeted at China.

Carmakers, in particular, have been caught in the middle of the trade fight. They rely heavily on metals to build their cars, including parts from overseas. The president’s threat to pull out of the North American Free Trade Agreement could also hurt the industry supply chain.

WOW! A Military Parade in his honor on AND a MAGA rally in Montana? #MidtermsIn129Days

White House confirms Trump to stump in Montana on July 5

https://www.greatfallstribune.com/story/news/2018/06/28/president-trump-stump-gop-montana/741286002/

President Donald Trump will come to Montana on July 5 to bolster support for Republican candidates in the Nov. 6 midterm elections.

The visit was confirmed Thursday by White House spokeswoman Lindsay Walters, but it was not immediately known whether he was coming to Great Falls.

The president's official website had Great Falls listed as the location for the event for a brief time on Thursday evening, but the page was down shortly afterward.

Montana Republican officials could also not confirm the location of the event as of late Thursday.


Planning for Trump's military parade finally getting underway
"There is only one person who wants this parade," a senior U.S. official told NBC News.

WASHINGTON — Four months after President Donald Trump directed the Defense Department to organize a military parade, planning is just beginning but no budget has been assigned yet.

Pentagon officials told NBC News that they will be able to pull off the extravaganza, but the lack of momentum is notable — and possibly indicative of low enthusiasm for the event outside the Oval Office.

"There is only one person who wants this parade," a senior U.S. official said, referring to Trump.

Even some White House officials are uninterested in planning the parade and are dragging their feet, according to a senior administration official.

Trump: "If I have another daughter, I think I'm going to name her LaSonya. Is that okay?"

Trump: "Journalists should be free of the fear of being violently attacked while doing their job"
