Since Last Time...

Flynn flipped. He's promised full cooperation with Mueller. Who's next? Is this the beginning of the end for Donald?

In the dead of night, with no Democratic support, the Senate rammed through the massive GOP tax reform scam bill.It's very unpopular. Will the electorate make them pay in the 2018 mid-terms? Any possibility it won't get through committee?

Powerful men have been getting accused of sexual harassment and / or assault at an astonishing rate. Bill O'Reilly, Harvey Weinstein, Louis CK, James Toback, Matt Lauer, Al Franken, Kevin Spacey, and many many more. Why now? Has something shifted?

The President of the United States promoted neo-Nazi propaganda. Just another day in Trump's America? Is this act, which is shocking, frightening, and quintessentially un-American, the new normal? Brits condemned it. Did anyone here do the same?

Net Neutrality is on the chopping block, as FCC chairman and former Verizon lobbyist Ajit Pai prepares to destroy the internet as we know it. But the RESISTANCE still has something to say about that.

Since Last Time...

The white supremacists came to Boston. And Boston came to greet them. 40,000 counter-protesters turned out to denounce racism and bigotry when approximately 100 conservative activists held a "free speech" rally ("whiney white guys with every advantage who inexplicably blame their life problems on historically abused and marginalized minorities" wouldn't fit on the permit) last month on Boston Common. The voices of the crowd drowned out the creeps, who aborted their rally early. Perhaps because people of conscience outnumbered the racists 400:1 that day, 67 planned events by hate groups in 36 states have been scrapped. Did this act of resistance send a strong enough message to the Nazis so called "alt-right" that their message of hatred and division won't be tolerated?

Minority President Trump's nominee for chief scientist at the United States Department of Agriculture...isn't a scientist. His name is Sam Clovis, and he was Donald's campaign manager in Iowa. He was a right wing talk show host, is a climate change denier, a racist, a birther, and a homophobe. But other than that, he's awful. Could this blatantly incompetent nominee survive senate confirmation hearings? Chuck Schumer warned Donald to withdraw the "wildly unqualified" nominee. Will he?

Since Last Time...

The GOP failed and failed and failed to repeal and/or replace Obamacare. Now Donald seems to be suggesting he will spitefully sabotage the health insurance that millions of Americans depend on. Will he get away with it?

White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus got the boot, being replaced by John Kelly, who then tossed White House Communications Director Anthony "The Mooch" Scaramucci, after just 10 days on the job. Will the dizzying musical chairs in this new administration make Donald suck any less?

Since last time...

Donald Trump Jr. isn't just an ordinary elephant killer, he's also an "idiot of towering proportions,"and, apparently, a traitor. The greasy-haired elder son of Minority President Trump has admitted to the New York Times that he met with a Russian lawyer connected to the Kremlin in order to obtain information on Hillary Clinton that would be damaging to her presidential campaign. He can now be added to the truly startling list of Trump associates who have had contact with the Russians, and who have lied about it. How many more wheels does the damn Trump bus have?

The elder Trump made a tremendous impression at the G20 forum. He wanted everyone to know it, posting a slideshow of himself shaking hands with world leaders and smiling, while a soaring chorus sings "Make America Great Again!" An Australian journalist had a decidedly different take on Donald's performance, which has gone viral. At one point during the summit Ivanka raised some hackles when she sat in for her dad. Maybe he stepped out to tweet about how at this summit of world leaders, who gathered from all over the Earth to discuss issues like trade and nuclear proliferation, "Everyone here is talking about why John Podesta refused to give the DNC server to the FBI and the CIA." And then there was the anticipated meeting with Vladimir. The Russian president got the upper hand in his meeting with Trump. Putin denied any Russian interference in our election, and Donald made very clear to him that such a flaccid defense was entirely acceptable. Then they discussed how Russia can help us with cybersecurity to secure our future elections! What could go wrong?

We can talk about all (or none) of these things tonight! Just come out and join your libby friends for some conversation, laughs, drinks and food!

Since last time...

Some good people got impatient with the slow pace of the investigation into Trump's Russian ties. A new march has been announced. The March For Truth will take place Saturday, June 3rd. DEMONSTRATIONS TO CALL FOR AN IMPARTIAL INVESTIGATION INTO RUSSIAN INTERFERENCE IN THE US ELECTION AND TIES TO DONALD TRUMP, HIS ADMINISTRATION AND HIS ASSOCIATES. Will it help? Will you go? As far as Donald is concerned, may it have the potential to be the MOST upsetting march yet?

Because they're all about what's best for the country, the GOP voted to let Donald continue to hide his taxes from the light. Should there be new laws created to make providing tax returns mandatory for presidential candidates?

Much as he didn't realize health care is complicated, Donald didn't realize the job of POTUS is hard. "I loved my previous life. I had so many things going," Trump told Reuters in an interview. "This is more work than in my previous life. I thought it would be easier." On a scale of 1-10, how bad for him do you feel?

Since last time...

After 7 long years and 54 votes to repeal Obamacare, Republicans finally got their chance to show us what they're made of. And they did. Will they try again?

Americans apparently got "tired of all the winning." Donald's approval rating has hit 34%. He's politically isolated.What are the chances he'll be able to get anything done?

On Sunday, The LA Times excoriated Donald in a must-read editorial,the first of a series. Was it too harsh? Too easy?

Since last time...

The Women's March. The airport protests in the wake of Donald's Muslim ban. The raucous town hall meetings. The right wing seems to be getting tired of all the resistance. At least 17 states have proposed anti-protest bills. These bills propose jail time and heavy fines for demonstrators - cuz the GOP is all about freedom! Could this stifle dissent?

If Donald took drugs to stay in control for his poorly rated address to Congress, they've worn off. It was back to batshit for Hair Furor this weekend, as he recklessly accused Barak Obama, without evidence, of bugging Mt. Doom Trump Tower. If it turns out this claim isn't another one of his delusions, he's likely in serious trouble. Is this the beginning of the end for Dolt 45?

Jeff Sessions lied to Congress during his confirmation hearing. He's recused himself from any investigation into Trump's Russian ties, but Democrats aren't satisfied with that. Could he face perjury charges?
