border

Buried deep in the Trump Administration’s plans to round up undocumented immigrants is a provision certain to enrage Mexico — new authority for federal agents to deport anyone caught crossing the southern border to Mexico, regardless of where they are from. If present immigration trends continue, that could mean the United States would push hundreds of… Continue Reading →

White nationalists

In the White House.

The ideological leader of the Trump movement is Sessions, hailed by Bannon for “developing populist nation-state policies” from his somewhat isolated perch in the Senate. Bannon, who avoids the spotlight, gives away the game in his praise of Sessions. “In America and Europe, working people are reasserting their right to control their own destinies,” he wrote in a recent statement to the Washington Post, blasting the “cosmopolitan elites in the media that live in a handful of our larger cities.” Given the demographics of Trump’s support—given the demographics of Europe—this definition of “working people” can mean only one thing: white people. And “cosmopolitan elites” has a long history as a euphemism for Jews and other minorities.

Go read the whole thing. Horrifying.

Ethnic cleansing

Rally for Refugees

I’ve been bringing up ethnic cleansing all week, because it’s clear to me that’s what the end game is here with these people.

People who are much smarter and more credentialed than I am have rushed to explain to me why that’s silly. But it’s not. We have three people in the White House inner circle who are white nationalists, people who are on the record saying we have to save the country from being overrun by Muslims and other brown people. Their actions of the past week make it clear what they’re doing.

Now that a male blogger is saying the same thing, maybe people will start to listen. I dunno. Apparently I’m overreacting and it can’t happen here.

Why does the cheeto trust Kris Kobach more than the CIA?

End Voter Suppression

It has to be frustrating for the Intel community when seventeen U.S. intelligence services report that there was a definite Russian interference in our election process and it was met with with criticisms, rebukes and then deaf ears by the president even though his inner circle is now part of those inquires. Yet, when Kansas Secretary… Continue Reading →
