The rats are fleeing looking for a home with the Democrats... be wary

Are they really holding him because he was convicted of fraud in Romania in absentia or because they don't want him to dish dirt on Trump? If it were because of the criminal conviction he would have been deported already.

Years of Mark Zuckerberg's old Facebook posts have vanished. The company says it 'mistakenly deleted' them

These disappearances, along with other changes Facebook has made to how it saves its archive of announcements and blog posts, make it much harder to parse the social network's historical record. This makes it far more difficult to hold the company, and Zuckerberg himself, accountable to past statements — particularly during a period of intense scrutiny of the company in the wake of a string of scandals.

If the report exonerates, show us the full report. If Trump has nothing to hide and stipulated publicly he has no issue with the full report released (which he did), then he needs to order Barr to release the full report. As with all investigations of Hillary and Bill, release not only the full reports but all of the evidence gathered as well without redaction. #ReleaseTheFullReport

"Barr says Congress will get a redacted version of the special counsel report."

"redacted" by a trump appointed AG to remove evidence, like the fox guarding the henhouse.

Every investigation of Bill and Hillary Clinton was released unredacted and with all evidence to Congress and the public without delay. The precedent exists for Barr to have done the same. They are hiding something. Some key words in his last statement point to protecting certain people - likely Trump and all the Republican leadership that was complicit along with the foreign sources who bankroll them.

The most interesting brackets in recent political history

Arguably the most politically provocative line in Bill Barr's summary of the Mueller report began with brackets. What did the rest of the sentence say?

Trump's posture toward Puerto Rico becomes even more antagonistic

We're well past the point at which the president appears to be indifferent toward Puerto Rico. He's now openly hostile and antagonistic toward the island.

A U.S. federal court struck down North Carolina’s decades-old ban on abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy, saying any “week- or event-specific” abortion ban is unconstitutional.

I follow #AOC with great interest from Boston (her college town), partly because she represents my old neighbourhood (#Sunnyside #Queens). I hope she can survive & thrive in such a harsh spotlight.

Wow interesting.

South Bend mayor Pete Buttigieg (D - IN) ranks third in Iowa polls

"The biggest surprise in this poll is Mayor Pete, last week we saw him inching up in our national poll, and now he’s in double digits in Iowa, America is going to be asking who is 'Mayor Pete'?" Spencer Kimball, director of the Emerson Poll, said.

“If Buttigieg is able to maintain his momentum, his candidacy appears to be pulling from the same demographic of young voters as Sanders, and that could become a problem for Sanders,” Kimball said.

In giving Trump the all-clear on obstruction charges, Barr appears not to have considered whether Trump obstructed the actual crime in question. He instead considered whether the president obstructed a different crime. This is the legal sleight of hand that has allowed Barr to proclaim that Trump will not be charged.

The Democratic-controlled House Judiciary Committee now has abundant reason to get all the underlying materials from the Mueller inquiry, because the attorney general just cleared the president of something he agreed constituted a crime just a few months ago.

'We support it': NAACP endorses LGBTQ Equality Act

The organization’s support came into question earlier this week after Gregory T. Angelo, the former president of gay conservative group Log Cabin Republicans, implied the NAACP was not behind the bill. In an opinion piece titled "Don't Fall for the 'Equality Act,'" Angelo stated that "African American legacy civil rights groups are absent" from an "exhaustive list" of organizations supporting the Equality Act. He specifically cited the NAACP.

Hate groups have come unhinged over the Equality Act. You won’t believe what they’re saying. / LGBTQ Nation

Democrats have introduced the Equality Act, aiming to include “sexual orientation” and “gender identity” to the classes protected against discrimination by the Civil Rights Act of 1964 — and hate groups want you to be scared.

“Picture walking into your child’s preschool for mandatory transgender story hour,”
????!!!! SAY WHAT!? Do they have mandatory 'story hour' of male, for males, and female for females! All the excuses brought can be solved with common sense: Shower Stales and information about sexuality should be private. Who in the hell wants to know what I do in my bedroom when they interview me for a job or give me a diploma!

There are plenty of pervert supervisors and employers who want to know as they get off on knowing. The people screaming about these ridiculous things are phobic because of their own tendencies they are attempting to hide or deny.
