    The US going after the disabled isnt that surprising, they've been doing it for several years now here in the uk. To the point where 111,000 people died because of it. Conservatives are fine to let the plebs die.

    American conservativism has become, effectively, enacting cruelty upon others so there's someone suffering more than you are.

    Imagine if they decided they could use the energy for something, anything positive, instead. Crazy talk, I know.

    I'd argue modern conservatism in general has become this. The way current society works is a constant stream forward, at this point all the right wants to do is hold everyone back or defraud people.

    Other than Trump using human beings as pawns, and implying that it will be bad for those cities because he is a racist who things those are "not their best" the racist asshole?

    Well, those are very attractive cities where the immigrants will probably be treated a lot better than in, say, Birmingham Alabama. But the rent is pretty high.

    Or in a language that you, as a registered supporter of the party of evil will understand:

    Signaling to people in shithole countries that they will be safely bused to attractive sanctuary cities where they will be treated well will cause more caravans for brown people.

    Of course, Trump and white nationalist advisor Stephen Miller are hoping for violence from 'migrants' and that these cities and locales will be strained by them and will, he hopes, see an increase in racial tensions that will result in support for his policies.

    Agreed, it's nice to see him stand up for a Democrat.

    The issue is that Sanders having that many independents chipping into his campaign doesn't really point to that Dems have made a bunch of headway with increasing support among independents.

    If you have to count on Sanders' blessing to maybe wind up with the support of some of those independents, I'd say you are already starting out five or six steps back.
    We won't need his blessing if he can avoid sabotaging the other candidates too badly this time.

    I find it refreshing how some of the female candidates have been treating each other with respect so far, instead of going for the jugular.

    And will a guy who is going soft on Democrats be able to be tough on Putin? He may just have shown he is no longer qualified to be president. Thanks for pointing that out, thir.

    Meanwhile, Sanders is still campaigning on the long debunked "economic anxiety" trope, showing he has no concept on why Trump really won, so how can he figure out how to beat him?

    Trump Uses 9/11 Footage To Advance Right-Wing Attacks On Ilhan Omar

    The bad-faith attack attempts to paint the freshman lawmaker as being flippant about the terrorist attack. Plain and simple: this shit is flat out dangerous! Trump effectively put a bullseye on Omar's back, and there's no shortage of unhinged madmen out there all too willing to take potshots at her. And when that happens (let's not kid ourselves, it will), Trump should be directly held responsible!

    **********

    Now Outraged, Trump Boasted On 9/11 That His Building Was Tallest After Attack

    Appallingly insensitive — and false, Democratic strategist Paul Begala recalls after the president tries to bash Rep. Ilhan Omar using images of the terrorist strike. The hypocrisy is strong with Mango Mussolini.

    **********

    Trump Said He Would Pardon Border Official If He Broke Law By Denying Migrants: CNN

    The Department of Homeland Security denied the report, which CNN sourced to two senior administration officials. And Trump said Hillary was "crooked"? Seriously?

    **********

    Federal Judge Compares Trump’s Attacks On Courts To KKK And Segregationists

    “When politicians attack courts as ‘dangerous,’ ‘political’ ... you can hear the Klan’s lawyers, assailing officers of the court across the South,” said U.S. District Judge Carlton Reeves. An apt comparison to say the least.

    **********

    How A Spat Between Two Rich People Gave Congress The Power To Get Trump’s Tax Returns

    President Donald Trump doesn’t want to release his tax returns to Congress, but thanks to progressives, two of the biggest scandals in U.S. history and a fight between two millionaires, he doesn’t have a choice.

    Congress has had the power to request individuals’ tax returns since 1924. Now, House Democrats are using that law to request Trump’s returns in order to provide oversight into the alleged audit the president said is keeping him from sharing the info ― which could reveal how much he evades paying his taxes ― with the public.

    In a letter to Congress, Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin asked for more time to fulfill the request for Trump’s tax returns as he consults with the Justice Department. Democrats view this maneuver as a stalling tactic. The law is clear that the Treasury Department “shall” provide anyone’s tax returns to the House Ways & Means Committee upon request.

    The power of Congress to request those returns came about through a series of legislative compromises over the publicity of tax returns and congressional oversight of the executive branch and fueled by two of the biggest political scandals in U.S. history. Now, the scandal-plagued Trump administration finds itself in a fight with Congress over keeping those returns private.

    Trump's foreign and immigration policies are so well thought at and deterrents to illegal immigration that it's increasing more and more every day. After two years, all we've learned is... "Trump used CRUELTY... It's not very effective!"

    (As opposed to when the Obama administration used COMPASSION.)
