1. Trump from Michael_Novakhov (198 sites): Palmer Report: Donald Trump has totally bonkers late night meltdown


Donald Trump spent Wednesday slamming his fist down on the table and yelling “bye-bye” at Nancy Pelosi, before he stormed out of the room and then tweeted the words “bye-bye” just for effect. Most Americans were hoping this was some kind of resignation letter, but alas, he’s still illegally occupying the White House for now. However, the day went so horribly for him, he ended up having a late night meltdown that was – in his words – “totally bonkers.”



Trump didn’t like the fact that the mainstream media dared to do its job on Wednesday by reporting on just how poorly this shutdown debacle is going for him, so he erupted with this late night gem: “The Mainstream Media has NEVER been more dishonest than it is now. NBC and MSNBC are going Crazy. They report stories, purposely, the exact opposite of the facts. They are truly the Opposition Party working with the Dems. May even be worse than Fake News CNN, if that is possible!” Then it got weirder.




Even as Donald Trump is publicly claiming that the Republicans in Congress are united behind him on his government shutdown suicide mission, he admitted the opposite behind closed doors. It’s not clear that Trump understands how the concept of “off the record” works, because he posted this after members of his own party appeared to leak his desperate words: “Gave an OFF THE RECORD luncheon, somewhat of a White House tradition or custom, to network anchors yesterday – and they quickly leaked the contents of the meeting. Who would believe how bad it has gotten with the mainstream media, which has gone totally bonkers!”



So there you have it. Donald Trump is accusing others of having gone “totally bonkers” which based on his consistent habit of projection, means that he knows he’s gone totally bonkers. He then declared that his approval rating is at its highest level ever, when back in the real world, it’s near its lowest point ever.

Sex offender registries don’t prevent re-offending (and vigilante justice is real)  The Conversation AU

It may seem that having a public register which shows the whereabouts of dangerous people would keep the community safe. But evidence shows public sex …

1. Trump from Michael_Novakhov (198 sites): Palmer Report: Matthew Whitaker’s life just got ripped to pieces


Whatever Matthew Whitaker was hoping to accomplish when he agreed to illegally become Donald Trump’s Acting Attorney General, it’s all over now. Whitaker still technically holds the title, though it’s clear that Mueller and Rosenstein have scared him into not interfering with the Trump-Russia probe. But now Whitaker just got rung up on his worst fear – and his life is about to be altered drastically.



The House Judiciary Committee, now under the control of the Democrats, has announced that Matthew Whitaker is its very first investigative target. Whitaker has been trying to hide behind the Department of Justice and Donald Trump’s government shutdown in order to avoid testifying, but nothing works that way, and so the Democrats will subpoena him if he doesn’t show up, according to Politico. So why is this so horrible for him?




Congressional subpoenas are legally binding. If Matthew Whitaker doesn’t show up, he’ll be held in contempt and arrested. So he can either choose to go that route, or he can show up and answer questions in front of the television cameras. During his testimony he’ll have to confess to the obstruction crimes he’s witnessed Donald Trump committing, and he’ll have to answer questions about his own patent scam endeavors.



While the House Judiciary Committee doesn’t directly bring criminal charges based on testimony, it can (and will) make a criminal referral to ensure that Matthew Whitaker gets rung up on all of the crimes he’s committed, both for Trump, and for himself. Whitaker had a short window of time to resign and disappear before the Democrats decided to destroy him, but that window has closed. Whitaker is the committee’s Target #1, and his life is now over.
