    Am sincerely asking cos I keep hearing that “this happened” under our POTUS44, children being transported, that is. I know that families were not split up. Kids travelling alone were placed in shelters/homes as their individual cases were rapidly heard & were represented. If so, MSM needs to be called out on their fall-back icky obfuscations. Also, asylum seekers were never incarcerated, let alone babies! So, MSM’s effed up “both sides” fabrication rings a very hollow tune in my world. Sorry, so many thoughts flying thru my mind, trying to find coherence. Am I correct in my thoughts?

    A- FUCKING MEN!.. Nerdy W THANK YOU for keeping this sanctuary up and running. It was especially needed this week to calm a depth of rage I reached this week that I didn’t know I was capable of reaching. We ❤ ❤ ❤ big time gurrl!

    After HOTUS' shenanigans and manufactured photop today, I hope those people who have said in the past how they feel sorry for her, finally get a god damn clue about the true nature of this woman. NO ONE in that family has a scintilla of empathy, integrity, compassion, honesty, authenticity. NO ONE. #BeBest (said snarkily). I hate these people with the white hot heat of a thousand suns.

      Hey, JO’B, I got my new word for this week just now as I was reading this article. 😉 I’ve always known the word ‘sham’ but I can’t remember ever hearing ‘shambolic’. Google states:- sham·bo·lic [SHamˈbälik] – adjective BRITISH informal means “chaotic, disorganized, or mismanaged”

      “The shambolic unfolding of this self-generated crisis recalls Trump’s handling of North Korea.”

      Bobfr, never, ever believed her femme fatale BS. So, is iQ45 going to incarcerate & deport her (didn’t she enter & “underwear model” in US illegally?). Under his policy, shouldn’t she be incarcerated & their kid in a cage far away, transported in the wee hours of the night to God knows where? Effers, all of them.

        Did she claim asylum? That should be public info. If so, she’s definitely an iQ45. She’s ugly as he. Can’t think beyond self interest. And that jacket today said all I need to know & confirmed all.

      • June 22, 2018 at 7:44 am

        If she was going there to show her concern for those children, there was no need for that coat. I don’t know if she was trying to show any concern, she probably agree with her racist husband about those kids.

      This should all make us feel better connected to the world at large, if we’d ALL just open our hearts and minds and embrace each other and each other’s needs. Sadly, there are those among us who will never do that. But many of the people in this country have been awakened by the awfulness of trump-the-terrorist and his actions, and I hope it continues to make them open their eyes and keep looking around to see how WE can help each other.

    Remember when that oil leak was going on and Michelle Obama went this beach to let people know that it was safe, imagine if she had a jacket on which said what Melania’s jacket said. Just imagine what the right wing would be saying, OMG. Hannity, would be having a damn fit.

    I am having such a hard time with all these children kidnapped. When my oldest was 2, we went to Hawaii on a family trip with my parents and siblings. We left Taz with “Grandma Jones” who had be his babysitter since he was born. He was with a family who he knew and loved him. When we got back he wouldn’t let us out of his sight for a very long time. These children aren’t with folks who love them I can’t comprehend how traumatized they are going to be. I don’t know if I can make it through all of this.

    Also I keep singing this song from my childhood. “ Jesus loves the little children all the children of the world. Red and yellow black and white they are precious in His sight. Jesus loves the little children of the world”

    Where are all my “Christian” friends and family.

    Apparently, this is not the official twitter account of the King of the Netherlands …

    [see: https://www.royal-house.nl/topics/royal-house/question-and-answer/what-is-the-official-twitter-account-of-the-royal-house) …

    What is the official Twitter account of the Royal House?
    The Twitter account @koninklijkhuis is the official channel of the Royal House. The account has had verified status since January 2012, which shows users that it is authentic. The Royal House does not maintain individual accounts. This means that any account claiming to belong to King Willem-Alexander, Queen Máxima or Princess Beatrix is not authentic.]

    But good thing I had my doubts and checked, because this made me take notice! I can see it happening someday, though.

        small rant
        Trump only about profit making. Nothing else matters, Endangered species air, water quality, heritage resources…nothing matters. Bragged to his base the other day that of all the Presidents in history he’s cut the most regulations. His rabid delusional greedy base think they’re going to rich while he cuts their jobs. Real Estate guy sees everything as Profit. He is a KOCH oil pawn. And imo a Putin oil pawn. So all about privatizing and getting rid of regulations, and against anything that is public good. Oil and pretending 5 billion years of free heavenly solar don’t exist. We can keep driving while the planet heats up, paying for gas while they build runways for their jets.

      “THE KING AND QUEEN OF CRUELTY.”
      “You just can’t construct prisons for babies. You can’t rip children from mothers and fathers. You can’t use the power of the American government to institute and oversee a program of state-sponsored child abuse. You can’t have a system where the process and possibility of reunification is murky and maybe futile. You can’t do any of that and assume that decent people won’t rise up in revolt…
      This is an immoral act of an immoral man, one who saw absolutely no flaw in using the anguish of children and families — people he viewed as deficient and less-than, “not their best” — as pawns in a political fight to force Congress to fund his ridiculous hate symbol: a border wall between the U.S. and Mexico.”

      There’s a story Dan Pfeiffer likes to tell about the election that changed everything—the moment he knew the ground had shifted under his feet. It was November 2014 and Pfeiffer was sitting at his desk in the West Wing, waiting to talk to his boss, President Barack Obama, about the seismic electoral loss that had just delivered Republicans control of the Senate. “Pfeiffer, tough night,” Obama said as his senior adviser for communications and strategy trundled into the Oval Office. The president went on to diagnose the problem at the center of the administration’s recent setbacks, which included a growing frenzy on the far right over Benghazi, birtherism, Fast and Furious, Solyndra. “In 2008,” Obama recalled, their communications strategy had been “so far ahead of the curve.” But with the furious expansion of right-wing radio, Breitbart, Fox News, Twitter mobs, and fake news on Facebook, it seemed like the Obama team—the progressive young guns who ran the first Internet-focused campaign—had lost the thread. “Lately,” Obama said, “it feels like we have fallen behind.”

    In the spirit of “Follow the money,” I wonder who is profiting from 45 and Company’s latest acts of inhumanity. We’ve already been told that it costs more to separate families than to keep them together. The whole “zero tolerance” policy insures that facilities will be filled. Resources are involved in transferring children thousands of miles from their families. The lack of documentation is deliberate.

    This is a profit-making scheme in the name of border security. Human beings are being treated as property. WHO is profiting and HOW MUCH are they profiting!?!?!?

    Efforts to eliminate ACA protections threaten the security of women with pre-existing conditions
    Recently, the U.S. Department of Justice refused to uphold the law in Texas v. United States, when it argued that the community rating and guaranteed issue provisions of the ACA are unconstitutional. Without guaranteed issue, women could be denied coverage based on their medical history, their age, and their occupation, among other factors. Without community rating, women could be charged more, or priced out of the insurance market altogether, based on their health status or other factors. Insurance companies could also try to reinstate gender rating, a common pre-ACA practice in which insurance companies charged women higher premiums than they did men, even though other parts of the ACA protect women from discrimination in the health care system.

    Now, think tanks and conservative opponents of the ACA are introducing proposals to repeal the ACA yet again. If implemented, these proposals would similarly put women at risk of being denied coverage or charged more because of their health status.

    More than half of all women and girls have pre-existing conditions
