Another Six Weeks

In other news, Trump has been named in over 50 lawsuits in just the last three weeks since his inauguration, more than Clinton, Bush and Obama combined.

Meanwhile, if this report from Politico is to be believed, Ivanka and Jared Kushner stopped Trump from signing an anti-LGBTQ order. I don't know if I buy this, but in any event I still think he'll sign it at some point. He might sign it just to spite after reading this.

Finally, the White House reportedly rejected a State Department statement for Holocaust Remembrance Day that mentioned Jews. We have deniers in the White House.

There's been so much news the past couple days there's no way I could get to all of it, so here's some other stories that caught my attention.

The New York Times has a bewildering and frustrating story on conservative farmers who are dealing with climate change every day, but they don't want to call it "climate change."

The new deputy director of the CIA is apparently a torturer.

WASHINGTON — As a clandestine officer at the Central Intelligence Agency in 2002, Gina Haspel oversaw the torture of two terrorism suspects and later took part in an order to destroy videotapes documenting their brutal interrogations at a secret prison in Thailand.

The former prime minister of Norway was detained at Dulles airport in Virginia because he visited Iran 3 years ago.

More military sources have spoken out against Trump's disastrous raid in Yemen.

And the state of Alabama has been ordered to reimburse the Southern Poverty Law Center for fighting former Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore over gay marriage. As you may recall, Roy Moore refused to comply with the Supreme Court ruling on gay marriage. Moore was removed from office.

Here's the funniest thing I saw today.

Have a good weekend.

    Well just add these to the ever increasing list of facts that this sad excuse for an Administration and its equally foul supporters refuse to believe. How depressing that these people seem to pull decisions out of the crack of their ass based on events in their own mental Wonderland, while the majority of us must inhabit the real world where their lousy decisions destroy everything on an escalating basis.

    Failing to mention Jews during a Holocaust remembrance is bad. Deliberately removing all references to them is far worse.

    The farmer story sounds like conservatives acting PC if you ask me.

    The military may very well learn just how dangerous the The Tangerine Nightmare® really is far, far quicker than most of us and in frighteningly real world ways. God help them.
