In an ABC interview, Trump says we should have kept Iraq’s oil after invading, violating international law, but “Maybe we’ll have another chance.” Holy fucking shit.
New executive orders suspend immigration (including refugees) from Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen. The orders authorize local police to become immigration officers and the White House will publish a weekly list of crimes committed by undocumented immigrants.
Trump has called for a major investigation into voter fraud. His reasoning for this crackdown? A German professional golfer he knows saw some Latinos in a voting line in Florida. Paul Ryan is fine with that investigation despite the total lack of evidence.
This story is literally that someone Trump knew tried to vote illegally, and saw brown people in line https://t.co/eFTOjaRhGN

‘Treasury secretary nominee Steven Mnuchin lied in his written responses to the Senate Finance Committee, claiming that “OneWest Bank did not ‘robo-sign’ documents,” when ample evidence proves that they did.’
Other Fascist Nonsense
After yesterday’s gag order on public communications, at least 14 federal agencies’ employees have started anonymous, rogue Twitter accounts. NASA has published all the research it funded, for free.
Last week, a coalition of activists and community advocates announced the launch of a new promotional campaign in support of the Reproductive Health Equity Act of 2017, a bill that would make the state the first in the nation to establish reproductive health equity by protecting no-cost birth control and extending full coverage of reproductive health services to immigrant women, transgender and gender-nonconforming people, and the uninsured.
