In other news, the Trump regime has reversed on Obama-era ban on supplying police departments with military surplus gear.

Meanwhile, ICE agents reportedly abandoned 50 immigrant women and children at a bus station in San Antonio that was shut down because of Hurricane Harvey. The women and children were provided shelter by a local church after they were abandoned.

Finally, Jared Kushner reportedly told Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas that they can't stop illegal settlement construction because it would be bad for Netanyahu politically. So much for that peace process.

Harvey is forecast to make a second landfall tonight in the Houston area, with an additional 12 to 18 inches of rain still expected on top of what's already there.

    Among the materiel now available to domestic law enforcement are weapons larger than .50 caliber, tracked vehicles (tanks, to you and me), and bayonets (yes, really). The mind boggles.

    Can we just cut to the chase and declare ICE a criminal enterprise already?

    So the peace process is less important than propping up a loud, abrasive, divisive, self-promoting … Oh. Oh, I get it now. Never mind.

    For what it’s worth, my sympathies to everyone affected by Harvey. Stay safe.

    And that is a truly disgusting 41 seconds of video. What a wanker.


    • I can’t watch the videos any more. His voice is like nails on a chalkboard to me and I get some angry it’s bad for my health. I will have to let Ashby watch the videos and summarize for me–bless you, BTW, Ashby.

    “In other news, the Trump regime has reversed on Obama-era ban on supplying police departments with military surplus gear.”

    Anyone who believes the Republican party is in anyway interested in practicing some philosophy known as “limited government” does NOT understand the Republican party.

      But, but Jill Stein and the far Left keep saying that both parties are the same and that Hillary would have been worse….

  • Good gawe, he is a POS. As if we needed more evidence that he is a sociopath.

      Good gawe indeed! Can any of his bum licking sycophants – Hannity, the couch tumors of Fox & Friends, and so forth – seriously support said POS with a straight face? Or do their ungodly paychecks supersede any sympathy and empathy for the people along the Gulf Coast? (I believe we know the answer to that!)
