About Me

I am a Brit. I am a working class child of the troubles in Belfast who now lives a life of privilege. I am an anti-racist, progressive monster for truth. If I fail in being that monster, call me out....

"manual of decorum" ....to ban members from using about Trump during Mueller report hearing


On June 10 the House Judiciary Committee will hold a hearing on the Mueller report. Ahead of that, GOP Rep. Doug Collins has sent a letter to Jerry Nadler citing the “manual of decorum” with a list of words he wants Nadler to ban members from using about Trump during the hearing

And it is not even a Freudian slip....

If you couldn't be American where would you choose to come from?

Obviously, this is a question for all you Americans on DU. There is a big wide world beyond the borders of the States as we all well know. So, if you couldn’t be American which country would you choose and why?

Trumps America: State Rape With A Foreign Object

Just finished listening to a podcast from last nights RMS. She did an expose on the frightful mostly old mostly male rapists that run Missouri. They are now forcing Doctors in the only abortion clinic left in the sate to do unnecessary pelvic examinations on women who want an abortion. Like if they are taking an abortion pill, or if they have come in for a consult before they get sent home for the scurrilous and unnecessary 3 day waiting period before they can have the abortion.

Get undressed, lay down and let the state rape you if you want to have this procedure we disagree with.

An invasive and completely unmerited procedure, and the poor doctors are between a rock and a hard place. Either do this procedure that is unwarranted and harmful to your patients well being OR shut down the clinic... what a choice.

Missouri to women who dare to seek a constitutionally protected procedure: We will punish you through rape with a foreign object.

It is beyond despicable.

'Pro-choice' Susan Collins has voted to confirm 32 anti-abortion Trump judges

Sen. Susan Collins of Maine, one of just two Republican senators who claim to be pro-choice, has voted for at least 32 of President Trump’s anti-abortion judicial nominees. (The other such senator is Lisa Murkowski of Alaska.)

Collins has voted to confirm more than 90 percent of Trump’s judicial picks, including 32 nominees that NARAL Pro-Choice America and the Democratic PAC American Bridge found had indicated they oppose abortion rights.

“Actions speak louder than words, and no amount of pro-choice rhetoric will change the fact that Senator Collins has voted to confirm over 30 anti-choice Trump judicial nominations,” Maine Democratic party spokesman Alex Stack told HuffPost. “Any pro-choice credibility Senator Collins built up over the past two decades in Washington is officially gone.”


Pro choice my arse
She is so duplicitous.

Peterborough by-election result: Brexit Party fails to win first MP as Labour retains seat

Source: The Independent

Nigel Farage’s Brexit Party has failed to secure its first parliamentary seat as Labour snatched victory in the Peterborough by-election.

Unite activist Lisa Forbes was elected with a majority of 683 in the marginal seat vacated by disgraced MP Fiona Onasanya, who was sacked by her constituents for lying over a speeding offence.

Labour’s victory comes as a blow to Mr Farage’s ambitions, as his recently-formed party sought to build on its strong European election performance to win a foothold in parliament.

The constituency, which voted overwhelmingly for Brexit in 2016, had been squarely in the party’s sights but appears to have been defeated by Labour’s more established ground campaign.

The media has been playing a narrative that the Brexit Party was going to storm it.

This is good news. The disruptor failed to disrupt much to every ones surprise!

The senseless cruelty of the Trump administration's cuts to legal aid for detained migrant minors

The Trump administration is cancelling legal aid, as well as funding for English classes and recreational activities for unaccompanied minors who are detained crossing the border into the US, the Washington Post has reported.
Items such as legal aid, English lessons or playtime are “not directly necessary for the protection of life and safety”, the Health and Human Services department spokesman Mark Weber told the Post.

Weber chooses to ignore the patent truth that children forced for lack of legal aid to defend their own immigration claims are most likely to have their claims refused and be deported to countries where their lives are at risk. He chooses to pretend that traumatised and vulnerable children detained while exercising their international right to seek asylum might need anything other than food, water, and perhaps some flat surface to lie on. He chooses to pretend that there could be some moral justification in imprisoning children who have committed no crime, and then holding them under worse conditions than those experienced by many adults caught up in the US’s harsh and punitive criminal legal system.

Immigrant aid and advocacy groups are understandably outraged. “It’s bad enough that the Trump administration is trying to normalise the warehousing of children. It’s unconscionable that they would so blatantly try to strip them of their rights. Locking up children and then denying them legal aid, education, and even playtime is all part of this administration’s cruel efforts to dehumanize people who have come to the US seeking safety,” said Denise Bell, a researcher for migrant rights at Amnesty International.
