When a Stranger Decides to Destroy Your Life

quote [ Monika Glennon has lived in Huntsville, Alabama, for the last 12 years. Other than a strong Polish accent, she fits a certain stereotype of the All-American life. She’s blonde. Her husband is a veteran Marine. Her two children, a boy and a girl, joined the military as adults. She sells houses—she’s a real estate agent at Re/Max—helping others realize their own American dream.

But in September 2015, she was suddenly plunged into an American nightmare. ]

Social media opinion + random asshole = years of harassment.

Russian woman charged with spying for Moscow by 'infiltrating' NRA

quote [ Maria Butina, 29, met US politicians and candidates to establish ‘back channels’ and secretly reported to Kremlin, DoJ alleges

A Russian woman has been charged with spying for Moscow in the US by infiltrating the National Rifle Association (NRA) in an attempt to influence the Republican party and American politics.
Two unidentified Americans, one of them described as a “political operative”, were said in the charging documents to have assisted Butina in her efforts to make political contacts in the US. Neither was charged with a crime. ]

If we live through this shit, this is material for a good movie or mini-series.

Actual Republican politicians endorsing a project to arm toddlers.

They aren't kidding.

Trump pardons ranchers in case that inspired 2016 occupation

quote [ President Donald Trump has pardoned two ranchers whose case sparked the armed occupation of a national wildlife refuge in Oregon.

Dwight and Steven Hammond were convicted in 2012 of intentionally and maliciously setting fires on public lands. The arson crime carried a minimum prison sentence of five years, but a sympathetic federal judge... decided the penalty was too stiff and gave the father and son much lighter prison terms.

Prosecutors won an appeal and the Hammonds were resentenced in October 2015 to serve the mandatory minimum.

The decision sparked a protest from Ammon Bundy and dozens of others, who occupied the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge... from Jan. 2 to Feb. 11, 2016, . ]

Trump starts assembling his private army of loyal militias.

Charles Krauthammer, Conservative Political Commentator, Dies at 68

quote [ Krauthammer was a champion of hawkish foreign policy and was known for supporting the war in Afghanistan as well as the invasion of Iraq under President George W. Bush.

However, he was not afraid to oppose President Donald Trump, refusing to vote for him and then calling him a “moral disgrace” for his reaction to the white nationalist rally in Charlottesville. ]

He was kind of a dick at times, but looks good compared to what passes for a conservative now.

Listen to Children Who’ve Just Been Separated From Their Parents at the Border — ProPublica

quote [ ProPublica has obtained audio from inside a U.S. Customs and Border Protection facility, in which children can be heard wailing as an agent jokes, “We have an orchestra here.”

The desperate sobbing of 10 Central American children, separated from their parents one day last week by immigration authorities at the border, makes for excruciating listening. Many of them sound like they’re crying so hard, they can barely breathe. They scream “Mami” and “Papá” over and over again, as if those are the only words they know. ]

Trump and his supporters and enablers are a bunch of evil fucks who must be defeated.
