Oh, and there's the part where he wrote a book defending torture that was endorsed by Dick Cheney, the one member of the murderer's row of Republican scumbags he hadn't worked for.

Qu'elle surprise! Comrade Thirsty always quoting the best sources. I'll bet he's pro-asbestos too.
Makes you wonder...If I were putting stuff out there that I KNEW would get VERY close scrutiny, and I had about half of my stuff, at a stretch, marginally correct and the other half was total BS, I might think again about what I was putting out there. But, that's just me I guess..

How can the DOJ not defend the laws it is supposed to be enforcing?

I'm not sure Trump knows that non-Caucasian Canadians exist. That would be a train wreck.

Also worth pointing out health insurance premiums are set to rise significantly again. Some states could be rising 20-30% thanks to the policies the white house are setting for aca.

n a statement earlier, Tweel said that although he appreciated Trump's sentiment, a "pardon is unnecessary."
"The US Supreme Court overturned the conviction of Muhammad Ali in a unanimous decision in 1971. There is no conviction from which a pardon is needed," he said.

Adam Putnam’s office stopped concealed weapons background checks for a year because it couldn’t log in

Quote:
The employee in charge of the background checks could not log into the system, the investigator learned. The problem went unresolved until discovered by another worker in March 2017 — meaning that for more than a year applications got approved without the required background check.
So let me get this straight... there was only ONE person in the entire office charged with doing this stuff? And they just sat there and shrugged for a year when they couldn't log in? Insane.

That’s normal. If the justice department believes the law to unconstitutional, they won’t defend it. Obama did the same thing with DOMA.

The justice department is probably investigating Subban and Lindsay Von right now.

Trump making an ass of himself again today. Late to the start of the G-7 summit, stumps for Russia to join the group, and then later blames Obama for the Crimean invasion. Bizarre. A lot of smoke and mirrors and hubris when there needs to be respectful discourse.
