'Kiss of death': Trump's White House lawyer quits

President Donald Trump has lost another member of his legal team.

Emmet Flood, who was serving as special counsel to the president, after working as interim White House counsel, will be leaving the administration in two weeks, Trump announced on Twitter.


So someone who knows where all the bodies are buried is leaving? Someone who will struggle to get another job as a lawyer because Trump is so toxic is leaving the WH? Heh.
If I was Trump this would trouble me.....

State Department will now require all visa applicants to provide social media accounts as Trump's...

...'extreme vetting' process finally takes effect

The State Department is now requiring nearly all applicants for U.S. visas to submit their social media usernames, previous email addresses and phone numbers.

It's a vast expansion of the Trump administration's enhanced screening of potential immigrants and visitors, which President Donald Trump has referred to for years as 'extreme vetting'.

In a move that's just taken effect after approval of the revised application forms, the department says it has updated its immigrant and nonimmigrant visa forms to request the additional information, including 'social media identifiers,' from almost all U.S. applicants.

The change, which was proposed in March 2018, is expected to affect about 15 million foreigners who apply for visas to enter the United States each year.


Yet another reason why I will not be visiting my house in the US anytime soon... Even if I was not doing my own mini boycott, one link at my DU account and I would be banned for a decade!!!

Dear Republicans: %#@$ off! Love, America's rational, self-respecting women voters.



She is not Meghan Markle. She is the Duchess of Sussex.

In all the hullabaloo today about Trump calling Meghan Markle nasty one thing is really getting my goat.

Trump calling her nasty is not a surprise. She is a woman of colour who would rather cut off her own head and eat it than meet him. Who could blame her? Of course he is going to be rude about it.

However, she is the Duchess of Sussex and married to the fifth in line to the throne. That in this whole debate today everyone has failed to use her title, like they know her.... just smacks of racism and misogyny.

Just sayin'

A New Right-Wing Disinformation Campaign: Biden Was Part of a Deep State Plot Against Trump

That didn’t take long. Joe Biden had barely joined the 2020 presidential race when the right-wing disinformation machine began cranking out the newest iteration of its Deep State conspiracy theory, with this version claiming the former vice president was part of a government cabal that cooked up a supposedly phony Trump-Russia scandal to keep the reality television celebrity from gaining the White House. This certainly is an easy charge to debunk—that is, if you care about facts—but it’s still likely that this unfounded notion will take hold in the fever swamp of Trump-encouraged and Fox-fueled conservative paranoia.

Days after Biden declared his presidential bid in late April, Restoration PAC, a conservative political action committee generously funded by a Republican billionaire, posted on Facebook a video titled “Joe Biden’s Involvement in the Fusion GPS/Steele Dossier.” For right-wingers, any Biden connection to this document would mean that the Democratic 2020 frontrunner was in the middle of the plot against Donald Trump, for the theory pushed by Fox Newsers and others holds that the memos written by former British intelligence officer Christopher Steele during the 2016 campaign—which alleged Trump was directly in cahoots with Moscow—triggered the FBI’s Trump-Russia probe that morphed into special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation in 2017. The basic foundation of this conspiracy theory, though, is wrong: The FBI’s inquiry began in late July 2016 not because of the Steele memos but due to the US government receiving information from another government (the Australians) that a Trump campaign foreign policy adviser, George Papadopoulos, had been privately told that Russia had dirt on Hillary Clinton—a trove of emails—that could be used against the Democratic candidate. (Want a source for this? See the last page of the infamous Nunes memo.)
