Those Maleficent Men and Their Lying Machines

From The Chronicle (Duke University):

Stephen Miller, White House senior advisor […] drew a firestorm of media attention this week after hundreds of his emails with a former Breitbart editor were reported by the Southern Poverty Law Center.

Miller, an immigration hardliner who was reportedly an architect of President Donald Trump’s controversial “Muslim ban,” sent the emails to Katie McHugh, then an editor at Breitbart, in 2015 and 2016. The SPLC report paints a picture in which Miller would send information and story ideas—sometimes citing VDare, which has published work by white nationalists, and InfoWars, which is known for promoting conspiracy theories—to McHugh, who then often wrote about the topics for Breitbart.

Well, kids, I am sure that you’ve heard about the New York Times op-ed written by someone only identified as a “senior official in the Trump administration.” It’s titled:

I Am Part of the Resistance Inside the Trump Administration

I work for the president but like-minded colleagues and I have vowed to thwart parts of his agenda and his worst inclinations.

Who can it be? A man, a woman, one person, more than one? A real “resister” or someone who thinks this might help the Rethugs in the midterm elections? Damned if I know!  But it’s so much fun trying to guess.

Let them eat anything but specifically designed gay cakes

From THE HILL:

Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced Monday that the Department of Justice is creating a “religious liberty task force.”

Sessions said the task force, co-chaired by Associate Attorney General Jesse Panuccio and the assistant attorney general for the Justice Department’s Office of Legal Policy, Beth Williams, will help the department fully implement the religious liberty guidance it issued last year.

Banana Republicans

From THE HILL:

Sen. Bob Corker (R-Tenn.) compared President Trump‘s consideration of a plan to strip half a dozen former national security and intelligence officials of their security clearances to “a banana republic kind of thing.”

Her reign in Maine should fill you with disdain

Dan Cluchey has an essay about Susan Collins at Medium. He talks about her relationship with Margaret Chase Smith, the first Republican female senator from Maine, and how Suze is a complete failure in comparison. Suze makes believe that she is a moderate, but what she really is is a con artist. Rip off the mask, and she’s just another Rethug opportunist.

Recollect-shun

From THINK PROGRESS:

Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ memory seemed to lapse repeatedly when asked by lawmakers to recall details about a March 2016 meeting, where Trump campaign aide George Papadopoulos reportedly proposed a meeting between then-candidate Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin.

Sessions, who was testifying before the House Judiciary Committee, said he had “no recollection” of the meeting until he saw news reports, which jogged his memory.

He can throw his white hood in the air!

To the tune of Love is All Around, Lyrics by Sonny Curtis (Theme from The Mary Tyler Moore Show:

Who can turn the right on with his bile?
Who can take a sunny day, and turn it into a big stinking pile?
Well, it’s you, Roy, and you should know it,
With each slur and with that tiny pistol, you show it.

They’ll slap you on the back and get all tribal,
So spread your hate around, and thump your bible.
It’s Alabama after all,
It’s Alabama after all. ♪
