Is there anyone from the #USA that does not feel the shame to have that guy as their #president.
If you can, watch the movie #BlacKkKlansman, it is really good, best in recent years. Bonus points for showing it to your your far-rightist friends. I'd like to hear about their reactions.

On Trump's new special envoy to Venezuela and the El Mozote massacre

More than 900 peasants were murdered in and around several villages in the eastern province of Morazán. Most were old men, women, and children. At the Roman Catholic church in El Mozote, soldiers separated men from their families, took them away, and shot them. They herded mothers and children into the convent. Putting their American-supplied M-16 rifles on automatic, the soldiers opened fire. Then they burned the convent. Some 140 children were killed, including toddlers. Average age: 6.

In El Salvador, the Reagan administration, with Abrams as point man, routinely defended the Salvadoran government in the face of evidence that its regular army, and allied right-wing death squads, were operating with impunity, killing peasants, students, union leaders, and anyone considered anti-government or pro-guerrilla. Abrams went so far as to defend one of the death squads’ most notorious leaders, Roberto D’Aubuisson, who was responsible for the murder of Archbishop Ós... show more

Mueller('s team) said Manafort should be jailed for 24 years

“Manafort acted for more than a decade as if he were above the law, and deprived the federal government and various financial institutions of millions of dollars,” Mueller’s team said. “The sentence here should reflect the seriousness of these crimes, and serve to both deter Manafort and others from engaging in such conduct.”

Mueller’s team said Manafort resorted to fraud to maintain a lifestyle of “lavish spending” – spanning multiple homes, luxurious rugs and an ostrich-skin leather jacket – after his lucrative work for pro-Russian politicians in Ukraine dried up.

Jackson said Manafort had been caught lying repeatedly about his interactions with Kilimnik, which she said went to the “undisputed core” of Mueller’s search for any “links and/or coordination” between Drumpf’s campaign and the Russian government.

Merkel asks to China to involve in nuclear disarmament

"Disarmament is something that concerns us all and where we would of course be glad if such talks were held not just between the United States, Europe and Russia but also with China," said Merkel.

While pointing the finger at each other, both Washington and Moscow have also voiced concern that the INF -- a bilateral treaty between the US and Russia -- does nothing to constrain rapidly growing military power China.

Trumpists misinterpreting songs of freedom

This is by far the most deranged version of Woody Guthrie's «This Land Is Your Land», which is a song that tells us that the earth, any space in the outside world belongs to no-one particularly but is in everyone's equal possession; that there are no borders, no lines between us, while a wall is the exact opposite to this. I don't know whether the author did this on purpose or out of utter stupidity.

Also, how does he deframe the line:
As I went walkin', I saw a sign there
And on the sign it said: 'No tresspassing'
But on the other side it didn't say nothin'
That side was made for you and me.

This other side would be the Port of Entry, or the seaside along which you can't build a border without bankrupting the entire country. And what about the airbound travel? There are multiple ways, even the Canadian border. This is so stupid in many ways...

Sarah Sanders' team interviewed by Robert Mueller's team

"The President urged me, like he has everyone in the administration, to fully cooperate with the special counsel. I was happy to voluntarily sit down with them,” she said in a statement. Sanders has been critical of the Mueller investigation, echoing her boss's contention that it's a "witch hunt."

... But of course she didn't sit down with his team voluntarily, she has been told to, to tell what information she has got to offer about Trump's criminal record yet to publish. If she sat down with him voluntarily, she would have moved forward to Mueller's team.

Sanders' predecessor, Sean Spicer, was interviewed by Mueller's team in 2017. They've also questioned former communications director Hope Hicks.

On Trump's declaration of national emergency

(Please mind that this is a starkly liberal comment, and it reads this way completely.)
The declaration of a phony national emergency represents the biggest false flag in recent American political history. Sure, Ann Coulter peeks through the curtains seven times a night to spot the oncoming brown horde, but no serious person believes this rises to anything near the level of an actual crisis.

Drumpf and Trumpism have changed America to a country defined not by laws, rules, norms, constitutional boundaries, and small-d democratic governance but by the winds, moods, and impulses of the Drumpf thugocracy.

The Trumpternet is full of romanticized black velvet-quality illustrations of a muscle-bound Drumpf riding on tanks and smiting the unbelievers. A 300-pound man with ample moobs panting on a golf cart doesn’t have the same je ne sais quoi. He needs this action to keep the dictator image alive.

On Trump's declaration of national emergency

Put simply, Congress heard Drumpf's plea for emergency funding and used its primary authority under the Constitution — the power of the purse — to say no.

Instead, he announced a national emergency Friday morning that would allow him to draw $8 billion from the just-passed bill and other existing federal accounts to build the wall anyway, according to an administration official. Lawsuits will ensue, and the courts will have to decide whether and how to intervene in a power struggle between the other two branches.

Rep. Donna Shalala, D-Fla., a former secretary of Health and Human Services under President Bill Clinton, said it would be improper for Drumpf to take money intended for other purposes and shift it to building a wall.

That's the first time I heard something of her after taking office in the House of Representatives.

Judge releases gag order against Roger Stone

(Why does this gag order always sound like a bizarre SM game between two homosexual men? Seriously, they need to introduce a new term for such some orders against culprits)
Also Friday, Mueller's team released a filing in the case that included a tantalizing nugget suggesting federal prosecutors might have obtained "Stone's communications" with WikiLeaks, the website that dumped stolen Democratic emails during the election.

Jackson’s order in the Stone case doesn’t go as far as the one she issued in the fall of 2017 on Paul Manafort, his longtime business partner Rick Gates and their attorneys. There, she limited their commenting about the case just days after they were initially indicted in the Mueller probe.

“I am pleased that the judge’s order leaves my First Amendment right to defend myself in public intact," he said. "I will of course continue to be judicious about my comments regarding the case.”

This is the FBI agent that trump had fired just days before he would have become eligible for retirement benefits.
"People do not appreciate how far we have fallen from normal standards of presidential accountability. Today we have a president who is willing not only to comment prejudicially on criminal prosecutions but to comment on ones that potentially affect him. He does both of these things almost daily. He is not just sounding a dog whistle. He is lobbying for a result. The president has stepped over bright ethical and moral lines wherever he has encountered them. Every day brings a new low, with the president exposing himself as a deliberate liar who will say whatever he pleases to get whatever he wants." - Andrew #McCabe

I can oppose #Bezos and #amazon and also oppose the attempts by the #NationalEnquirer and #Pecker, to silence the #WashingtonPost's criticism of #trump and #MBS with #blackmail and #extortion.

This week I learned that #gab management are very awful liars. They got kicked out by their hosts for not paying, not for their nazi crap hosting. So they're basically breaking the law and scamming people, just like #trump (and then pretend to be the victims).

Some #Republicans have also criticised the move as setting a dangerous precedent, which could embolden a future Democratic president to declare emergency for a pet cause such as #climatechange or gun control.
