Federal Judge reveals the investigation involving Trump and hush payments is over and there will be no charges.

The investigation into his businesses is still on going.

I'm not sure the average Trump voter could pass your proposed questionnaire if they answered honestly... especially the part about gender equality.
Jay Johnson, Obama's DHS Secretary:

And here is a video from CNN with Johnson. Was the separation a mistake, some say yes and others say no. Truth is under Obama the numbers took a dramatic increase in 2016 and we did nothing to respond to this increase. Once Trump was elected we continued to do nothing.

Our immigration system is a joke. It needs a total revamp. Both sides are to blame. But it is time for someone to sit down and write a bill that fixes the problems and deals with the DREAMERS/DACA.

If I was sitting in congress as part of the GOP I would write the bill. But truthfully I do not know if Pelosi would allow the bill to reach the floor as it appears to me that the left do not want to do anything that looks like a Trump victory, when in fact we all lose.

Outside of a stupid f’n wall, if DACA/dreamers were part of a comprehensive bill, Pelosi would most certainly be on board. Now, the senate Republicans and the grabber-in-chief? That’s the real question.

Los Angeles, California cities 'overrun by rodents' that pose public health epidemic, study says

'An ever-growing number of rodents in California -- particularly in Los Angeles -- is being fueled by a spiking homeless population and restrictions on rodenticides that are risking a public health crisis, according to a study released Tuesday.

The report by political action committee Reform California cites recent rodent-related events over the past six months, including an employee at the Los Angeles Police Department contracting Typhus and a rat falling from the ceiling of a Buffalo Wild Wings onto the menu of a patron, as proof of an "undeniable problem" in the Golden State.

"California is being overrun by rodents," said Carl DeMaio, chairman of Reform California. "Without immediate emergency action by state and local government, we face significant economic costs and risk a public health crisis." ...'

So apparently rand Paul blocked the speed up of passing the 9/11 first responders bill because he is worried about the debt, complaining we are adding a trillion dollars a year to the deficit. The same guy who approved a trillion dollar a year tax break for the wealthy. Screw him

Interesting time for Rand to find his principles. The best coat of paint you can slap on this is that he is sounding a warning bell on the deficit (good for him), using a high profile bill to do so. As you note Burnt, it's duplicitous though to do so after voting for a non-funded tax cut.

I had high hopes for him, since he was just about the only guy in Washington who gave a shit when Obama drone struck a US Citizen without due process; and he always talked the talk on fiscal responsibility and breaking up power concentration. Unfortunately for those of us who actually care about fiscal restraint, power concentration, and due process, his talk hasn't really amounted to much. Sadly, he turned into a Trump bootlicker pretty damn quick.

Paul has always been against raising debt and is the first one that wants to know how an item in the budget can be offset with a reduction.

Sometimes you just have to bite the bullet and this was one of those times.
