In other news, Special Prosecutor Robert Mueller's team revealed this afternoon that Richard Pinedo of Santa Paula, California has pleaded guilty to providing bank accounts the Russians used to finance their interference in the 2016 election

Meanwhile, Trump's son-in-law Jared Kushner is still updating his financial disclosure forms to include things he supposedly forgot.

Finally, corporations have now used their GOP tax cuts to buy back over $170 billion in shares since January 1st not including another $50 billion just announced this week by Cisco, Pepsi, and AbbVie.

PSA: Black Panther is magnificent and you should definitely go see it.

Here are some other stories I didn't get to this week:

The parents of Republican Senate candidate Kevin Nicholson have maxed out their donations to their son's opponent Senator Tammy Baldwin.

Over 75 percent of the chocolate shipped American stores for Valentine's Day was imported from Mexico and Canada through the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA).

Democrats in New Jersey have voted to restore funding for Planned Parenthood now that Chris Christie is gone.

Trump bragged about the relocation of a General Motors plant from South Korea to Detroit except he just made that up and it's not actually happening.

A former Playboy Playmate has come forward to say she was also having an affair with Trump in 2006 around the same time he was having an affair to pornstar Stormy Daniels. Trump was married to Melania at the time and Barron had just been born. Family values, etc etc.

Boeing asked the International Trade Commission (ITC) to impose taxes on planes sold by Canadian manufacturer Bombardier because it would hurt their business, but the ITC says they rejected Boeing's request because Boeing isn't even competing with Bombardier. They didn't even make an offer.

The ITC said the 110-seat CSeries jets ordered by Delta (DAL.N) and Boeing Co’s (BA.N) smallest 737 MAX 7 plane do not compete. It also said Bombardier Inc’s (BBDb.TO) CSeries sale to Delta did not come at Boeing’s expense as the planemaker did not offer any new aircraft to the No. 2 U.S. carrier.

“Boeing lost no sales or revenues,” the ITC said in its 194-page ruling.

Boeing is impossibly full of shit.

Last but certainly not least, students walked out of class in Broward County this morning to protest the lack of action by public officials and the NRA

Programming note... Monday is a federal holiday and Congress is on recess so we'll be back in action here on Tuesday. Have a good weekend.

    “See something. Say something.” Yeah, right. trump is trying to say that the FBI dropped the ball here. But what, exactly, would the FBI be able to do about someone buying the kinds of weaponry that this sick kid was buying. trump himself signed into law the repeal of the law President Obama signed which tightened up the laws on people who have a history of mental illness buying guns. Since the GOP repealed that law and trump signed it, this boy violated no laws. None. Until he showed up at the high school and even then, he only violated the laws of Florida and the United States when he started shooting. Before that, and thanks to the NRA, the GOP and trump, he was completely within his rights and no law enforcement entity could do anything legally to stop him. Bill O’Reilly called that “the price of freedom”.
    You can ask those kids who lost classmates and teachers how ‘free’ they feel after that experience.

    Rump just posed with the police responders to the Florida shooting, and….gave a thumbs up in the photo. Fucking sociopath.

    I wonder how many MAGA f#¢ks bought Mexican/Canadian chocolate for their loved ones on Valentine’s Day?

    Looking forward to Black Panther this weekend.

    Happy weekend everyone.

    Apparently the students of Broward County were not impressed by the arguments of Tomi Lahren and the “thoughts and prayers” crowd. Go figure.
    When Mitch McConnell talks about what a good year it has been for conservatives, what the FFF is he talking about.
    In the Las Vegas shooting, a man which a military assault rifle augmented by readily available bump stocks in a matter of minutes killed close to 60 people and injured around 600. Many critically. Mass shootings of the kind that just occurred in Florida are becoming the norm. A regular and expected occurrence in American life. Something that children in our schools have to deal with as a possibility in their lives. But……the ‘Christian’ businesses may be safe from cake baking for weddings of people they don’t like.
    So,,,,there’s that.
