Healthcare Vote Postponed After Trump Fails to Make Deal

Tonight’s vote on the Republican replacement for Obamacare has been postponed after Donald Trump failed to make a deal with the conservative House Freedom Caucus. ABC News reports: Trump had made his last-minute sales pitch to conservative House Freedom Caucus members at the White House earlier in the day. After the meeting, however, House Freedom Caucus members said they haven’t reached a point where they can support the AHCA in its current form. The president and caucus members discussed options and were “trying to get creative,” caucus Chairman Mark Meadows, R-N.C., told ABC News. CBS News reports: The Freedom Caucus wants to lower premiums by rolling back what are known as the Obamacare “essential benefits” — like maternity care, emergency room...

Jussie Smollett ‘FUW’ is a Blistering Anti-Trump Anthem of Rage and Resistance – WATCH

Empire actor Jussie Smollett debuted “F.U.W.” (short for “f**ked up world), a new track accompanied by a searing anti-Trump video (directed by Smollett) that captures how many are feeling under this new regime. Billboard reports: The black-and-white video features men and woman of various ethnicities and highlights injustices, from human and LGBT rights to religious and racial prejudices. A woman wears a hijab in one scene, a boy wears a hoodie in another and four women put their fists up as they stand in front of the words, “My body, my rights.” “This song is for the oppressed. That’s why I feel like people will connect with it because it is very broad, because oppression...

Celebrities, Politicians—Even YouTube!—Have Come Out Against Trump’s Trans Hate

Celebrities, Politicians—Even YouTube!—Have Come Out Against Trump’s Trans Hate Yesterday was a bleak day for America’s trans community, as Donald Trump officially rescinded the protections that Barack Obama had put in place for trans students. Whereas since May 2016 the Department of Justice told schools that trans students had to be allowed to use bathrooms matching their gender identity, those guidelines no longer exist. From the statement released by Trump’s Attorney General, Jeff Sessions: The Department of Justice has a duty to enforce the law. [Obama’s] prior guidance documents did not contain sufficient legal analysis or explain how the interpretation was consistent with the language of Title IX. The Department of Education and the Department of Justice therefore have withdrawn the guidance. … ...

Trump Administration Sought Help from FBI to Squash Reports about its Communications with Russia

The Trump administration contacted the FBI asking it to publicly dispute reports about communications between Trump’s associates and Russia during the 2016 campaign, CNN reports: White House officials had sought the help of the bureau and other agencies investigating the Russia matter to say that the reports were wrong and that there had been no contacts, the officials said. The reports of the contacts were first published by The New York Times and CNN on February 14. The direct communications between the White House and the FBI were unusual because of decade-old restrictions on such contacts. Such a request from the White House is a violation of procedures that limit communications with the FBI on pending investigations. CNN has more… The CNN reports as additional news emerged...

9th Circuit Upholds Suspension of Trump’s Muslim Travel Ban

The 9th Circuit Court of Appeals has unanimously upheld the suspension of Donald Trump’s Muslim travel ban… Here’s the ruling. The Washington Post reports: The Justice Department, representing the Trump administration, could now ask the Supreme Court — which often defers to the president on matters of immigration and national security — to intervene. The Supreme Court, though, remains one justice short, and many see it as ideologically split 4-4. A tie would keep in place whatever the appeals court decides. A Justice Department lawyer, representing the Trump administration, and Washington state’s solicitor general, representing the opposition, made their final pitches to the appeals court Tuesday at a contentious hearing. Both sides faced skeptical questioning, and the panel seemed particularly interested in what evidence Trump relied...

It Turns Out Batman and Superman Both Oppose Trump’s Refugee Ban

It Turns Out Batman and Superman Both Oppose Trump’s Refugee Ban Now more than ever, the world needs a superhero or two. Unfortunately for us, Batman and Superman—two characters of the DC Universe originally created in the 1930s—are far from real. Still, for decades they have stood for all that is right in the world: truth (secret identities notwithstanding), fairness and good old-fashioned justice (violence occasionally required). In case you were wondering how two of the world’s most famous heroes feel about Donald Trump’s recent Muslim refugee/immigrant ban, our friends at Comic Book Resources uncovered the answer! It was 1949, following WWII, when DC Comics placed the below PSA in its comic books. As any history buff could tell you, that was a ...

CIA Director Nominee Mike Pompeo Vows to Treat LGBT Equally Despite Anti-Gay Votes and Views: WATCH

At a confirmation hearing today, Senator Kamala Harris (D-CA) asked Trump’s CIA Director nominee Rep. Mike Pompeo (R-KS) to commit to treating LGBT people equally within the CIA despite his public record of opposing gay rights. Pompeo told Harris that “every employee will be treated in a way that is appropriate and equal.” Our transcript: HARRIS: Your voting record and stated position on gay marriage and the importance of having a ‘traditional family structure’ for raising children is pretty clear. I disagree with your position, but, of course, you are entitled to your opinion. I don’t want to that, however, to impact your opinion on that matter—the recruitment or retention of patriotic LGBT women and men in the CIA, some...

A Gay Man’s Opinion of Election ’16

This story has a different ending than what I had hoped and planned for originally. It’s been hard not to comment and curse at the chaos happening in our country, the United States of America. To be quite honest it’s been difficult to focus on because it’s all so ludicrous. I’m a true democrat and I voted for Hillary Clinton. She is and was my choice for POTUS. Hillary has the most job experience of anyone who has ever ran for the office before and was/is more prepared than any of her opponents. If Bernie Sanders had become our party’s nominee I would fully support him and what he wanted to do. I didn’t know him going in but after ...

9% of self-described Democrats voted for Donald Trump according to the New YorkTimes.

Just sit with it. 42% of women voted for the man who bragged about using his celebrity status to sexually assault women and described them in the most vulgar and sexist ways possible. It almost seems impossible, doesn’t it? 45% of college graduates...

Undecided Voter? Madonna Will Blow You To Vote Hillary! It’s hard to imagine that anyone’s still an undecided voter, but hey — last week, Ken Bone got famous for being one.

30 GOP Congressmen shade Donald Trump

30 former GOP Congressmen signed a letter slamming Donald Trump today.Here's the bulk of it:“Each of us has taken an oath of office that conferred upon us a solemn obligation to act in the best interests of the United States. As Republican members of Congress, we took pride in representing a political party that stood for honest and principled public leadership in which the American people could place their trust,” they wrote in a joint statement. “Sadly, our party’s nominee this year is a man who makes a mockery of the principles and values we have cherished and which we sought to represent in Congress.Given the enormous power of the office, every candidate for president must be judged rigorously in assessing whether he or...
