Donald Trump trying to jettison the American dream, that's not trying to make America great again. That's trying to make America into a whole new country we have never been before in all of the 243 years that we have existed.

Seems Russia is backing China's claims that the United States is waging a interference campaign in Hong Kong & suggests Moscow & Beijing work together to counter "US operations". Can anyone say mega projection?

Here's a GOP candidate I could support

Judge Bates says DOJ's attempt to withhold part of Mueller-related FBI declaration 'takes chutzpah but doesn't take the cake.' Rules for press. Also important: notes that FOIA exemptions and standards for keeping court records secret could be quite different.

When I passed the Debbie Smith Act (funding to DNA test backlogged rape kits) , I had no idea it would become the "most effective anti-rape legislation in America." It MUST be re-authorized

Opinion: Trump’s claim that he supports legal immigration turns out to be a lie

A friend of the gunman who killed nine people in Dayton, Ohio last week allegedly told the FBI he helped the killer stockpile his arsenal—and even watched him assemble the murder weapon

NEW YORK (AP) — AP source: One of Jeffrey Epstein’s guards the night he hanged himself wasn’t a correctional officer

The men behind smears of Mueller and Buttigieg are offering $100,000 for info about Epstein's demise in jail. They don’t exactly have an inspiring track record

Four members have now resigned from the NRA in the past two weeks

There has been much speculation about Ghislaine Maxwell and her current whereabouts, even prior to Epstein's suicide this weekend. In the wake of his death, the spotlight will focus even more intensely on her and the extent of her involvement in Epstein's activities.

"Maxwell also said the island had been completely wired for video; the friend thought that she and Epstein were videotaping everyone on the island as an insurance policy, as blackmail."

Peter John Dalglish, former United Nations chief and top UN founder of UNICEF which is the world's largest children charity. He was arrested on child rape charges in Nepal and during his arrest two young children, ages 12 and 14, were rescued from his custody.

Here is Two of the laziest no good rotten bastards that I have ever seen in my life.

But it's not a cult. Nope. Perfectly normal.

The fact that Trump is targeting LEGAL immigrants is absolute proof that this was never about legality, it was always about racism.

Breaking News: One of Jeffrey Epstein's guards was not a full-fledged officer, and he was not checked on for hours in the short-staffed jail where he died

Two weeks after the Gilroy Garlic Festival shooting, San Jose's mayor has proposed a first-in-the-nation legislative idea where the city would require all firearm owners to carry liability insurance for their weapons.

Our national symbol, the bald eagle, would be a distant memory without the Endangered Species Act. The Trump administration is trying to take us back to the bad old days of dirty streams and vanishing wildlife. Make America Polluted Again?

BREAKING: Massachusetts To Sue Trump Administration Over Rollback Of Endangered Species Act

Trump has talked about stepping up before, and then backed down. That could force him to push harder this time, if only to “prove” that the NRA doesn’t control him.

Today is Monday. That means the @realDonaldTrump Administration is doing harm. This time it is to the Endangered Species Act, which helps protect God's creations.

Wow. I've been accused by white supremacists of being a "self-loathing white" who is "stoking the flames of race hatred" by denouncing racism. But did not expect to be so attacked in @NRO. A sad indication of what's happened to mainstream conservatism.

If Republicans weren’t in the tank, we would not have to wait until Nov 2020 to get rid of Trump. His utterances in the past few days make clear that, for the safety of the country, he should be removed immediately by impeachment or the 25th Amendment.

Federal agents, including FBI and CBP were seen on the dock and grounds of Little Saint James, the island owned by accused sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein in the U.S. Virgin Islands. The U.S. Attorney's Office and SDNY declined to comment on the operation.

White Privilege

As police violence in Hong Kong increases, so does the danger of an even more deadly crackdown on protestors. Congress stands with protestors seeking freedom, even if our president is silent. To Chinese authorities: The world is watching. Human rights must be respected.

Epstein was taken off suicide watch late last month at the request of his attorneys. He had been meeting with his lawyers for up to 12 hours a day.

Violent crackdown shall start very soon. Huge number of military trucks loaded with Chinese riot police or PLA soldiers were seen passing Huanggang Border Checkpoint on August 11, 2019 http://www.占θ±ͺ.com/home/webapp/reading/id/13337

In a speech today in New Orleans, Attorney General Barr weighs in on progressive prosecutors elected in a number of cities nationwide in recent years, calling them "anti-law enforcement DAs"

Barr says the DOJ is angry that Epstein was able to commit suicide.

The suicide of Mr. Epstein is an impossibilty. When an impossiblty occurs involving powerful people and possible criminality there must be an investigation to end speculation. Because the public has a right to know, I’m calling for a congressional investigation. #JefferyEpstein

John Oliver: “[Trump] has said he’s willing to stand up to the NRA but he’s also 1) a liar, and 2) likely to identify with an organization that has spent itself into colossal debt, has troubling ties to Russia, and is associated with shitty TV programs”

#MoscowMitch McConnell Heckled Out of Restaurant for Second Time in Two Days - A crowd of protestors played Public Enemy’s ‘Fight the Power’ and shouted “no justice, no peace”

“Don’t worry, I’ll see you soon,” the text message read. “It won’t be painful. I’m looking forward to watching your soul leave your eyes.”

"The real victims in Epstein’s death are the girls who survived the trafficking crimes, and they are the ones who have suffered the greatest injustice."

So it seems we know now that this was an exploding reactor

Has anyone seen or heard from Alan Dershowitz?

#HeatherHeyer died 2 years ago. She was protesting hate and racism. Dont forget her face, dont forget her name. Remember what she was fighting for. Think about how your country is now. Make her death mean something.

Nearly 200 flights coming in and out of Hong Kong were canceled today, on the fourth and largest day of sit-ins by anti-government protesters at the city's international airport.

It's like the President of the United States ignoring the 'bin Laden determined to strike US' memo every day of his presidency because he thinks bin Laden makes some good points.

The thing we need to consider about open carry zealots Many do it to intimidate others. That should be a consideration in #RedFlagLaws If you wear your long gun just to put others on notice, you shouldn't own a gun

U.S. Officials Suspect New Nuclear Missile in Explosion That Killed 7 Russians

'Some evangelicals are growing fatigued with the irreverent language that often seeps into Trump’s rallies and official events'

Trump led the birther movement, then blamed it on the Clintons. Trump colluded with the Russians, then blamed it on the Clintons. Makes you wonder if Trump’s involved in Epstein’s death since he’s blamin’ it on the Clintons.

The Trump Administration has reauthorized the use of the cruel M-44 devices that indiscriminately and painfully kill wildlife. My bill, Canyon’s Law, would ban these devices and finally bring accountability to the rogue agency Wildlife Services.

The New York City medical examiner is waiting on “further information” before ruling on an official cause of death on Epstein

Police said they’ve arrested a 26-year-old Florida man suspected of being a white supremacist for allegedly threatening to shoot up a Walmart right after a gunman killed nearly two dozen people at one of the superstores in El Paso, Texas.

From @MaxBoot: Does Trump really want to debate mental fitness?

It’s way beyond serious in Moscow, and the methods used by protestors - information - is increasingly effective. But this video is chilling.

This is Muhammad Rafiq. Know his name. Yesterday, when a white supremacist terrorist tried to carry out Christchurch-style massacre in a Norway Mosque, this 75 year old jumped on him, held him in a chokehold & sat on him till police arrived.
