President Trump ordered his administration to slow down coronavirus testing, he tried to block CDC funding, and he has ignored the experts from day one. His actions defy both logic and humanity. What kind of president actively undercuts efforts that will save lives?

Africa is starting to have second thoughts about that Chinese money

The Trump administration is moving as fast as it can to reverse decades of diplomacy between the U.S. and China

Trump trademarks tell a different story

Reprehensible by Bill Barr and Lindsey Graham: In their effort to help Trump, the duo declassified (Barr) and made public (Graham) info that revealed identify of FBI source. Risking his life, his family, at least one other source who’s been identified.

Millions of jobless Americans are anxiously waiting for Congress to decide whether to extend the $600 weekly boost to unemployment benefits that's been a key economic lifeline through the pandemic shutdowns. This was the last week of the enhanced payment

“Justice requires people to stand up.” Watch

This is another good “what if” article about the Supreme Court that ignores the “why” — look at the man behind the curtain, or in this case the money machine behind the curtain.

It was four years ago that we first began to see evidence of Russian interference in our elections. The lights were flashing red then, and are again now. We must deter, disrupt, and expose foreign interference. And we must vote. Because Americans decide American elections.

We have met the enemy and they is us

Promised confidentiality by the FBI, a Russia expert who had collected Trump-Russia chatter for the Steele dossier agreed to cooperate with agents vetting it. Barr directed the FBI to declassify a road map to identifying him

Someone ask Trump if he can recall this in order: Putin. Russia. Bounties. Troops. Silent.

Robert Mercer, Trump's most important donor in 2016, is sitting out the 2020 election, according to Business Insider.

Hong Kong has gone missing again.

Hong Kong has gone missing again. Insecure Xi would crush out Asia's gem of innovation, Hong Kong because he does not posses actual leadership skills. China and her people deserve better.

Last I checked the GOP controlled the US foreign policy. John Bolton reports that Trump was fine with Xi's Uygher concentration camps. I wonder why?

The Hong Kong Crackdown Is A Financial Disaster For China: Is It Time To Fire The CEO?

Good to see like-minded leaders from across Europe (incl NL) voice concern to the Chinese govt. about its Hong Kong take over. Europeans & Americans are standing together to support the people of Hong Kong against unlawful & dangerous takeover by the CCP.

How do people catch Covid-19? Here's what experts are saying about the route of contagion

If Congress needed this 302 for oversight, DOJ/FBI could have made it available without handing it over to be leaked. If true, this cld get people killed, and they don’t care. No source will trust the FBI, and they don’t care. They are doing generational harm, and they don’t care

TRUMP: "As soon as anyone kneels, the game is over for me, I'm not watching." *every single player kneels*

So, Sinclair is going to run that Qanon conspiracy theory BS "Plandemic", a "documentary" that claims, among other things, that Dr. Fauci invented #COVID19, on *three hundred* stations this weekend? The fantastic @kazweida has a list of Sinclair stations.

A day after boasting about his superior memory, Trump tells a detailed story about being booed at an event he didn't attend:

Black Lives Matter Portland, Oregon #BlackLivesMattters #Portland #PDX

The Trump Administration awarded $6.6 BILLION in taxpayer money to private companies for the development of a COVID-19 vaccine. My colleagues and I are asking @SecAzar how the Administration plans to make the vaccine affordable for all, considering the public paid to develop it.

It would be unacceptable for U.S. armed forces to be surveilling protests in an American city. I’ve asked the Air Force to explain these flights, including why this plane is circling Portland, what data it is collecting and who approved the mission.

"Advisers convinced Trump that canceling...could help him politically as he tries to pay closer attention to the coronavirus, show that he cares about the health of Americans and improve his sagging poll numbers." Poll numbers matter, not people

Protesters marched to the Washington, DC home of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) on Wednesday to call for an extension of federal pandemic unemployment benefits before they expire next week using the chant, "Mitch better have my money."

Bottom line: @RepTedYoho called another Congressmember a "fucking bitch" on the steps of the Capitol and is now actually trying to defend it and likewise raise money off of it. We need to bring some dignity back to Congress.

Local television stations owned by the Sinclair Broadcast Group are set to air a conspiracy theory over the weekend that suggests Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation's top expert on infectious diseases, was responsible for the creation of the coronavirus

What does Ghislaine Maxwell have on @realDonaldTrump?

"We're asking schools to have zero spare cash to somehow build a fancy air filtration system, to somehow do testing, and somehow create additional classrooms. They. Don't. Have. Money."

I’m a patriot who loves my country. And Mitch McConnell is the swamp. He built it

A lapse in enhanced unemployment benefits is now unavoidable because the @senatemajldr adjourned the Senate without voting on the extension that the House passed TWO MONTHS AGO. Millions will struggle to pay rent/mortgages as a result. Shame on Mitch McConnell!

For context: Currently, -About 8600 US soldiers in Afghanistan -About 11,000 soldiers in 82d Airborne Division -About 30,000 soldiers serving in all of Europe Before deploying, soldiers spend time training, gaining intelligence, building teams, preparing to work with allies.

If they voted to acquit Trump they have no merit. The conservative view will only be revived if authoritarian accommodationists are repudiated. Vote all of them out.

Hugely important piece by ⁦@JoyceWhiteVance⁩ about Trump/Barr’s abuse of federal law enforcement for seemingly political purposes & the dangers that presents.

Dear @TheJusticeDept & @DHS_Wolf: For every video you show of graffiti, there are more videos of peaceful protestors and illegal arrests by your unmarked, untrained secret police. The American people are not the enemy. You need to leave.
