Don’t Believe A Word The White House Says Round-Up

Rachel gets a gold star. She is all over this thing:

Fired US attorney at nexus of multiple Trump scandals

Can we at least see Ivanka and Jared’s tax returns since they seem to be running big chunks of the U.S. government.

Ivanka Trump is making her White House job official

And Nunes is acting more like a dirty cop with real legal vulnerabilities in this mess:

‘He won’t respond at this point’: Schiff says his relationship with Nunes ‘degraded’ over Trump-Russia probe

We haven’t had any rays of sunshine in a long while so– Proving that George W. Bush probably is a good guy to have a beer with (not a good person to be POTUS, though), he is reported to have said: “That was some weird shit.” when leaving Trump’s inauguration.

Data Mining For Fun And Profit

The next time someone tells me to have sympathy for the white working class Trump supporters I’m going to hurl on their shoes. The Trump supporters have given us cruelty, executive orders that guarantee environmental degradation, attempted healthcare manslaughter, and now they’ve taken away what little remained of our data privacy. Thanks assholes.

The Right believes that the rich and giant corporations should be uber-citizens: The rich and the corporate giants should have rights not enjoyed by real people, in other words. We see them expressing this belief yet again in their bill to allow internet service providers to sell your browsing history to anyone. Big corporations, Russian hacker shell companies, opposition researchers, your ex, who ever. Yay for freedom and liberty!

America May Want To Swear Off Authoritarian Regimes

America really should swear off the authoritarian regimes. We can’t handle the stuff. It’s really hard to say fascist dictators in Germany or Italy are evil, but our man Pinochet, he’s A-Okay. Or, how about we overthrow the elected government of Iran in 1953 and install a dictator and he’s great. But when the people finally rise up and take back their government in 1979 they’re real pissed about that whole installing an oppressive authoritarian regime thing, then– then we back another brutal dictator in Saddam Hussein to go to war with the, completely irrationally, pissed-off Iranians, and then we have a huge, expensive and regionally destabilizing war to get rid of Hussein, because, you know, authoritarian regimes suck and are evil, EVIL!  And how many innocent people, lots of women and children, were killed installing authoritarian regimes in South America during Operation Condor with critical help from America…?

Two Black Women Treated With Disrespect

Why is this okay? Why does Bill O’Reilly think it’s within bounds to ridicule someone’s looks? Anyone? And a black woman’s hair? It’s a racially loaded ridicule.

O’Reilly mocks Dem Maxine Waters for wearing ‘James Brown wig’

And why the hell does lie-machine Sean Spicer think he can tell any reporter– any reporter, to stop shaking their heads? Who the hell is Sean Spicer? Besides a known liar? Would he have done that to Major Garrett? I really doubt it.

You Can’t Scam An Honest Man

But America, America you can definitely scam. When this is over, if we survive it, we really need to sit down and have a talk with ourselves. A real Come To Jesus talk.

There are dozens of reasons why Putin’s cyberwar strategy has been so successful, but it was with infuriating ease that tens of millions of Americans were suckered by Putin’s plot and acted in accordance with it.– Bob Cesca

Russia’s cyberwar against America isn’t over — and the real target is democracy

But here we are, scammed by the Russians, with no real idea yet how deep the collusion and treason goes into our government, and one party, half of our political class in this country, seemingly obstructing the investigation to find out.

Grovel and Beg. Who Are We? Are We Really The People Who Live Free Or Die? — by Molly

This is the beating heart of our dog-eat-dog system: Grovel and Beg for what you get. Congressman Raul Labrador (R-ID) was on Morning Joe and things turned tense when he was asked about paid family leave.

Republican congressman explains why people don’t need paid family leave, leaves ‘Morning Joe’ speechless

Labrador owned a business, so in the Right’s construct that makes him a “better” and his employees his lessers. They should be grateful for whatever he decides to give them. He doesn’t believe that his business’ success was built with their labor. They are not his equals. Any respect he gives them as humans they should be grateful for.

A New Resource

Deray Mckessan just launched a new site for state level activism called OurStates that looks very helpful. We applaud him. A link to the site will also be found on the Resources Page. Here’s an article about the site from OccupyDemocrats.

This is a good time to remind about Michael Moore’s Resistance Calendar site.

And since we’re on the subject of activism here’s two articles that will be useful to activists crossing borders and digital security:
