One of the many fights we've been fighting this year is the MSM's practise of whipping up controversy beyond what the facts warrant. They did it to Hillary over and over and to Bernie way back when. So I wish they (and we) wouldn't descend to "majority muslim countries." There's no doubt that there's enormous Islamaphobia being proclaimed by the right, but it's not the case that these countries were identified because they were majority Islam. Obama identified them as being havens for terrorism. Indonesians and Indians and Saudis are not on the list.
The other instance of this proclivity to whip up controversy is comparing the firing of Richardson by Nixon. That's nonsense. Of course an attorney general who instructed the department not to defend the administration would be fired. I'm NOT saying she wasn't right to do what she did. But the actions aren't equivalent.
Bottom line. We have more than one fight to wage, and one of them is for straight, fact based reporting.
... will get so jealous he'll kick him out. It doesn't get rid of Trump, but I'd sure like to see Bannon go.
The DCCC has created a list of targeted house seats for 2018, which is a good thing (see list below), but there were lots of complaints about how the DCCC did its job during the primaries. Would it be better to donate directly to a few chosen districts?
This is a really important short video from the Southern Poverty Law Center.
It's clear that no one rose to applaud DT at the CIA. But not clear why they were all standing throughout his speech. Does anyone know? Sure I want to combat fake news... But I'm actually just curious.
From Huffington Post
The 400 agency staffers were standing when Trump entered the room, were still standing when he came to the lectern, and then remained standing through his 15 minutes of remarks.
There were no chairs in the room... All applause was standing. It just goes on and on.
I gave up on trying to find where I originally found this...
... are SO anti Trump. Where were all those voters in Michigan and Wisconsin and PA and FL??????????
... miss anything important. THANKS, ALL!!!
DC transit Twitter announcement.
Do you think Trump will try to close down DC's transit Twitter account like the Dept of Interior????
