Daily Gnuz

It be Thor’s day, and here’s the gnuz

Read Elizabeth Warren’s striking, bold speech responding to Trump’s “Pocahontas” taunts
“Pocahontas’s real journey was far more remarkable — and far darker — than the myth admits.”

H/T Vox
Gotta love this lady. Classy as always, stuffing Trump’s BS up his verbal gazoo.

And,
17 killed in Florida school shooting
H/T The Hill
Assault weapons have no place in a civilized society. They belong to the exclusive domain of the military. Which, coincidentally, is not a civilized society.

Finally,
With His Assault on PBS and NPR, Trump Seeks to Eliminate Real News
H/T The Nation
With his autocratic bent, Trump undermines the fourth estate. He is the most thin skinned pol ever… Not fit for the office, in so many ways.

Open Thread, No weeping, nor gnashing of teeth, just grin and bare it!

  1. “AMEN” of the day, so far:

    Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter: What Mueller is investigating is ‘almost a textbook definition of treason’

    “If a presidential candidate or his lieutenants secretly work with a foreign government that is a longtime adversary of the United States to manipulate and then win a presidential election, that is almost a textbook definition of treason,” (James)
    Risen wrote.

    Using the Constitution as “textbook”:

    Article III, Section 3, Clause 1
    :

    Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying War against them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort.

    Trump campaign and administration antics defined.

    • That’s why I can’t understand it when the few people who even mention ‘treason’ hesitate to call it what it obviously is. And they usually couch it as ‘almost treason’ or some such bullshit.

      • Absolutely. Been wondering exactly that since Reagan and Iran Contra. I assume that the US sending arms to Iran just might qualify as “Aid and Comfort.” Had that been Obama who pulled it off — or who was steadily romancing and praising Russia/Putin — you can bet that Republicans would scream ‘treason’ until the cows came home.

  2. I’ll repeat this announcement over the next few days. But I am shutting down my old Facebook feed, possibly forever. I was too reckless about what I let in, and now trying to filter it out seems impossible.

    So I’ve set up a new facebook presence at this address:
    https://www.facebook.com/gary.herstein.58
    Folks who would like to maintain personal, FB contact with me are welcome to send friend requests. Asking you to do so will be quicker than me sending them out individually, plus this gives a more secure notification that I am really Me.

    Sorry for the inconvenience, and thanks for the friendship.
