ON THE SAME DAY A REPUBLICAN-LED SENATE INTELLIGENCE COMMITTEE FOUND PUTIN INTERFERED WITH OUR 2016 ELECTION TO HELP ELECT TRUMP, SENATE REPUBLICANS ARE IN MOSCOW TODAY STRIKING A “CONCILIATORY” TONE! WHAT IS HAPPENING?!

This info appears to confirm the administration is creating/maintaining lists of legitimate critics of Trump and following their (our?) social media.
Jeffrey Guterman, Ph.D. (JeffreyGuterman)
I was just visited by two Secret Service officers regarding my tweets about #tRump.
Jesus Fucking Christ. It’s the late 30s and 40s all over again.
Dear Dr. Guterman, Ph.D.: Don’t talk to the police without a lawyer present. And when your lawyer is present, he’ll tell you not to talk to the police then either.
Ok, look. More Trump cabinet racism.
They try to say they are promoting fairness and merit but the whole reason these programs are needed is because the system is inherently rigged against minorities and POC to begin with.
This is just more “think of the white people!”
ETA since I was thinking about this while driving.
Another thing that seems noble in theory but in reality is just ignoring the very real problems and differences that POC experience in America. Until everybody is truly equal, “race-blind” policies aren’t helping. The ability to be “race-blind” is just code for “white privilege”.
More of treating the status quo as the “fairest” most “natural” order, the way conservatives love to do, even though they have to work day and night to preserve their creaking experiment in racial hierarchy. They love to treat things like Affirmative Action as social experiments gone awry, but their grasp of social history is utter garbage at best, twisted, socipathic propaganda at worst. It’s yet another irony of the “party of personal responsibility” that they refuse to take responsibility and admit to the crimes of racism and make good on the foul play (read: murder, tortue and slavery, etc…) that built the status quo in their favor.
Yeah, only when policies may put them at a supposed “disadvantage” then it’s all about fairness and equality. Otherwise it’s all, “everything’s fine!”
Another possible Trump affair that might not stay buried.
Tariffs AHOY! Pedal to the Metal (Full Steam Ahead)
“Soybeans have been a key battleground in escalating trade tensions between the two countries as China is the world’s biggest importer and America’s largest customer in trade worth $14 billion last year. The Asian country is expected to cancel or re-sell U.S. soybeans due to the additional duties and purchased 19 cargoes from Brazil last week. China typically imports from Brazil at this time of year before switching to the U.S., spurring concerns about a deficit in the fourth quarter.”
'murica Baby! Hey farmers, how’s that going for 'ya?
Republican Representative and Freedom Caucus founder Jim Jordan is accused of knowing about and not reporting sexual assaults being committed by the team doctor when he was a wrestling coach at OSU. He’s denied any knowledge, of course.
And, in “water is wet” news…
More disgusting displays of racism and sexism from Dump.
First thought on seeing the clip was that his first gesture looked like he meant up her hoo-hoo. But maybe that’s giving him too much credit for then saying ‘toss it’.
Manufacture chaos situations (trade war) then swoop in and “fix” them ala Syndrome. Just more deception, bullshit, destruction and waste of our money.
Call your reps and demand that no bail out should come from the Fed. trump created this fuckery and his base should suffer the consequences.
mmm. more Welfare For Real Americans Only bulkshit. nice.
“The government cheese program,” Hart said, explaining further, “Dairy prices were very low. The government was trying to support dairy farmers. The way they did that by purchasing milk. They did it through this Commodity Credit Corporation. “
