Here's the opinion: US District Judge Arenda Wright Allen: "...the perpetuation of harm to a child stemming from unconstitutional conduct cannot be allowed to stand."

The president used an orphaned baby as a prop to make it look like he gave a shit.

Trump took time out of his busy Friday to highlight yet another personal grievance: an upcoming “Racist” movie from “Liberal Hollywood,” the satirical point of which the president couldn’t understand or seemingly didn’t care to grasp

Yesterday, ICE raided companies in Mississippi. One was Koch Foods. Our reporting on Koch Foods supplanting Black farmers found that it had been sued for sex harassment, retaliation & discrimination against Hispanic employees.

Unusual to charge workers but not employers in worksite case. We always focused on those who were profiting and cheating competitors by hiring undocumented workers.

Authorities say an Ohio man has been charged in federal court for a Facebook post saying Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez "should be shot."

Courage, America. Steps to impeachment have begun. The most corrupt and abusive president of our time will soon be rebuked by our democracy and for all the world to see. We will get thru this nightmare. We will prevail.

Re-casting boycotts (a venerable democratic tradition) as harassment is a way of entrenching the power of the wealthy, who will now have the right to fund whatever racism or extremism they want without being held accountable by their fellow citizens.
