    Right Wing Pastor Brags About Trump’s Assault On The Rule Of Law

    Earlier this month Focus on the Family. James Dobson joined a monthly prayer call with intercessors for America where Dobson actually praised Donald Trump’s efforts to destroy the judicial branch of the federal government. Although of course, Dobson doesn’t think it’s destroying the judicial branch. He thinks it’s restoring it to some kind of former glory that I guess Dobson thinks that it has during this phone call. Dobson specifically praise the quote, godly people behind the scenes who were feeding Donald Trump these nominees, and we know who those people are. It’s people like Mitch McConnell, people like Lindsey Graham, the Federalist Society and other right wing think tanks…

    Alabama Cop Threatens To Blow Up Nancy Pelosi

    I want everybody to remember the name, Jeff Buckles. Jeff Buckles is an assistant Sheriff’s deputy in the tiny little town of Geraldine, Alabama, population 900. And Mr. Buckles, well, sorry, officer Buckles was watching Donald Trump’s state of the union on Tuesday of this week and afterwards, he saw Nancy Pelosi rip up her copy of Donald Trump’s speech and officer Buckles lost it. Officer Buckles took to Facebook and wrote the following. He said, Pelosi just ripped up his speech. And by the way, he spelled speech, S P E A C H. Officer Buckle’s, not the brightest bulb out there, but dang it, he’s serving the people…

    Consumers Need More Advocates But Corporations Are Poaching Young Lawyers

    America’s facing a crisis right now that I don’t think many people in this country actually understand, and that is that law schools aren’t necessarily teaching law students one, how to actually go into a courtroom and try a case, but two, the importance of handling cases on behalf of American consumers. A lot of law school graduates would rather go work for corporate law, or even tax law or patent law, little bit more relaxed, little it easier, and the money’s a lot more guaranteed. But we need skilled trial lawyers here in the United States, and Mike Papantonio, co-host of Ring of Fire, former Past President of the…

    Nearly 1,600 Scientists And Science Advocates Have Left Government Jobs Under Trump

    Since the beginning of the Trump Administration, it’s been clear that there’s been no adults in the room at least when we’re talking about the West Wing itself. There’s nobody inside of that White House that’s really trying to rein Donald Trump in in spite of what that New York Times op-ed says about aides coming in and switching papers on his desk and all that. Nobody’s really doing a good job preventing the worst things of this administration from becoming reality. But at one time, there were adults in the federal government, and unfortunately, those adults are now leaving because they cannot stand the thought of working another day…

    Jared Kushner Hit With New Legal Complaint

    Earlier this week, Jared Kushner appeared on CNN in his official capacity as a member of the Trump administration, a senior advisor and assistant to the president of the United States. I believe that is his official title and during this segment where he was representing the administration, he went forth and advocated for the reelection of Donald Trump repeatedly throughout the segment about a day and a half after this segment aired, the group citizens for responsibility and ethics in Washington crew filed an immediate Hatch Act violation complaint against Jared Kushner as it is very clearly a violation of the Hatch Act for any government official to act…

    Trump’s Own Government Confirms He Broke The Law

    For months and months, ever since the word impeachment first became something that was real, Republicans had been insisting that Donald Trump did absolutely nothing wrong. And if he did do something even slightly wrong, it probably wasn’t an impeachable offense because it wasn’t technically a crime. Well, according to yesterday’s, a government accountability office report, Donald Trump did in fact commit a crime. And that crime was a violation of the 1974 impoundment control act, which clearly States the president cannot withhold congressionally approved funds. Not for any reason. Doesn’t matter if it was purely based on something that this country needed as Trump claims it was, it doesn’t…

    Mitch McConnell Hit With Ethics Complaint Over Impeachment Charade

    Yesterday, the advocacy group, Public Citizen, filed a formal ethics complaint against Senate Republican majority leader Mitch McConnell. In their complaint, Public Citizen explained that McConnell has repeatedly made it clear that he is not going to be an impartial juror in Donald Trump’s impeachment trial. In fact, McConnell has stated on the air that he is in fact working with the White House and that whatever the White House wants him to do with the impeachment trial is what he’s going to do. He is coordinating with them every step of the way, according to him, he is the one who told us this. This isn’t hearsay or conjecture.…

    New California Labor Law Has Made Freelancing Nearly Impossible

    A new labor law has taken effect in California that will forever change the gig economy. The bill was designed to give wage protections and benefits to gig workers, but instead the bill has resulted in layoffs and controversy. RTs Brigida Santos joins me now with the story. So Brigida, why is Assembly Bill 5 so controversial? I mean, after all, this is something you know, we had wanted for a long time, protect gig economy workers, but it seems to not be doing that. So tell us what’s happening with this. Farron, this is controversial because it wasn’t well thought out and had almost no input from the public…

    Judge Smacks Down Trump Administration’s Claim That They’re Above The Law

    When the second half of the Robert Mueller report came out, uh, there was a lot of information in there that said that at the time, the white house counselor Don McGahn had carried out a lot of orders that Donald Trump asked him to do, that McGann felt were either inappropriate or quite possibly illegal. And after finding that out from the Mueller report, Democrats in the house of representatives issued a subpoena for McGahn to come and testify to them and explain what exactly he meant by carrying out orders by the president that he felt were illegal. Donald Trump, of course, blocked McGann from going to testify.…

    UN Expert Says Trump Definitely Violated International Law

    According to the new UN global study on children, deprived of Liberty, Donald Trump and his administration definitely committed crimes with their family separation policy. Those children that Donald Trump and his cronies ripped from the arms of their parents and locked them in cages according to the United nations was absolutely a violation of international law. Most specifically a violation of the uh, convention on the rights of the child that the UN passed and not ironically, the United States was actually the only UN member country to not sign on to that. For some reason, we thought that this convention on the rights of the child wasn’t a…
