“The commander in chief in an Oval Office meeting referring to people from African countries and Haitians with the most vile and vulgar language, that language festers. When ignorance and bigotry is allied with power it is a dangerous force in our country. Your silence and your amnesia is complicit in it,” Booker said.
This passionately charged statement by Senator Booker eloquently sums up the extreme challenges of the past twelve months. “Ignorance and bigotry allied with power”…empowers like-minded to commit evil towards their fellow citizens.
Senator Booker was speaking to Kristjen Nielsen while she was testifying before the Senate Judiciary Committee about what she heard Trump say at his meeting on Friday. She claimed Trump didn’t use the vulgar, racially offensive term that’s been all over the news. Booker’s charged reproach rebukes Nielsen. May this sink in with the GOP. Amnesia equates with complicity.
Kristjen Nelson is a Scandinavian name. Are either she or her husband from Norway?
Will Kushner be Next to Fall?
Just a reminder about how tight Flynn and Kushner were. It’s been over a month since Flynn’s plea deal was announced. At the time, it was understood that Flynn would be taking down a big fish. Is it Kushner?
“This was the context of Kushner’s instruction to Flynn last December. One transition official at the time said Kushner called Flynn to tell him he needed to get every foreign minister or ambassador from a country on the U.N. Security Council to delay or vote against the resolution. Much of this appeared to be coordinated also with Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu, whose envoys shared their own intelligence about the Obama administration’s lobbying efforts to get member states to support the resolution with the Trump transition team. “
Reversing Net Neutrality Rollback, The Fight Continues
State Attorney generals across the country have joined the fight to reverse the Net Neutrality rollback.
“‘Attorneys general from 21 states and the District of Columbia, including California and New York, filed a petition for review and argued that the FCC’s action was ‘arbitrary, capricious, and an abuse of discretion,’ and violated the Constitution and federal law.”
But the really big deal today was that Senator Markey announced that ALL 49 Democratic Senators are co-sponsors of his bill to reverse the Net Neutrality rollback. GOP Senator Collins has also committed her support to the Bill. Markey only needs 1 more GOP Senator to win the reversal.
“There is a tsunami of Congressional and grassroots support to overturn the FCC’s partisan and misguided decision on net neutrality,” said Senator Ed Markey (D-MA). Republicans now have a clear choice — be on the right side of history and stand with the American people who support a free and open internet, or hold hands with the special interests who want to control the internet for their own profit. I urge them to join the majority of Americans, embrace the bipartisanship of net neutrality, and support this resolution.”
