In other news, the Trump regime is proposing new rules that would allow "faith-based" foster care and adoption agencies to continue receiving federal funding even if they discriminate against LGBT families.

Fuck your faith.

Meanwhile, the World Trade Organization (WTO) has ruled in favor of the United States again by rejecting India's objection to losing privileged trade status on about $7 billion in goods. So, Trump's tariffs on Indian goods are clearly here to stay.

Finally, The Trump regime is withholding security funding from Lebanon and no one seems to know why.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. President Donald Trump's administration is withholding $105 million in security aid for Lebanon, two U.S. officials said on Thursday, two days after the resignation of Lebanese Prime Minister Saad al-Hariri.

The State Department told Congress on Thursday that the White House budget office and National Security Council had decided to withhold the foreign military assistance, the two officials said, speaking on condition of anonymity.

The officials did not say why the aid was blocked. One of the sources said the State Department did not give Congress a reason for the decision.

The State Department declined to comment.

It's not like $105 million is a lot of money in the grand scheme of things, but Trump is literally being impeached for withholding security funding from another country for political reasons.

Have a good weekend.

    Agree with you about “faith”. The bigotry, sexism, racism, homophobia etc. that these people are allowed to get away with so long as they cynically cloak in the sanctity of “faith” is abominable. And why any of us are still letting it slide is beyond me.
