‘We don’t know what to do’: Taliban kills more than 200 Afghan forces

Someone might want to ask Trump how is it that he is losing the Afghanistan War. Wasn’t he supposed to be creating this superior military that is untouchable?

The Taliban have killed more than 200 Afghan soldiers and police officers in four provincial districts in the last three days, with the heaviest losses occurring in the key city of Ghazni just south of Kabul, according to The New York Times.

More than 100 Afghan security forces have been killed in Ghazni, about 40 to 100 were killed in the Ajristan District, more than 50 were killed at a base in Faryab Province, and at least 16 were killed in the northern Baghlan Province, The New York Times reported.

Mueller Should Indict Don Trump Jr. 

It is acknowledged on all sides that President Trump cannot be indicted. But that doesn’t mean his son can’t. In fact, Mueller would be a fool to not do so. The case against him is very strong. He was at that June 2016 meeting with the Russians and later admitted that he was there for the purpose of getting dirt on Hillary:

 A meeting between President Donald Trump’s eldest son and a Russian lawyer during the presidential campaign occurred at the behest of a Moscow-based singer with family ties to Trump’s businesses, according to a participant in the talks. Donald Trump Jr. acknowledged Monday he made time for the meeting hoping to get information about Democrat Hillary Clinton.

Trump Administration Tells Supreme Court to Wipe Out Decision Upholding Net Neutrality

The Federal Communications Commission repealed net neutrality rules earlier this year, but the Trump administration wants to go even further. On Thursday, the solicitor general requested that the Supreme Court vacate a 2016 ruling from the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals that holds that the net neutrality rules enacted during the Obama years permissibly reclassified broadband as a telecommunications service subject to regulation under Title II of the Communications Act.

Upon Trump’s inauguration and the appointment of Ajit Pai to lead the FCC, the rules preventing telecom giants from engaging in content discrimination through practices like blocking and throttling was swiftly repealed. So quickly, in fact, that the Supreme Court hadn’t gotten a chance yet to weigh in on a petition from AT&T and others to review the legality of reclassification.

Carl Bernstein: ‘The Trump presidency is worse than Watergate’

That says it all:

Carl Bernstein, a veteran journalist who helped uncover the 1970s Watergate scandal that led to the resignation of President Richard Nixon, says Donald Trump’s presidency “is worse than Watergate.”

Bernstein’s remarks during a CNN interview this week were a rebuke of Trump’s behavior amid the ongoing Russia investigation. Trump has escalated his attacks on the probe in which federal prosecutors are examining his campaign’s ties to Russian operatives who meddled in the 2016 US election.

Donald Trump falsely says new Carter Page documents show Steele dossier launched Russia probe

Put simply, Trump is wrong about the triggering event. The Steele dossier did not launch the FBI’s investigation into links between the Trump campaign and Russia.

The dossier was used, to some extent, to persuade a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act court to authorize surveillance of Page. But it was the actions of another Trump campaign adviser — George Papadopoulos — that actually started the investigation.

The federal government started looking into Russian election involvement in July 2016 based on information from Papadopoulos. This was confirmed by Republican members of the House Intelligence Committee.

“The Papadopoulos information triggered the opening of an FBI counterintelligence investigation in late July 2016 by FBI agent Pete Strzok,” the House Intelligence Committee’s GOP members wrote in a Feb. 2 memo.

Watch the BBC Documentary Exposing Trump’s History of Sexually Pursuing Teenage Women

Make sure to watch this BBC documentary (shown on the Panaroma program) that exposes Donald Trump’s history of harassing young women. It will be shown in the U.S. Sunday morning starting at 5:30am (so make sure to set your DVR). If you miss that  you can watch it at 5:30pm:

Donald Trump is an admitted sexual predator, philanderer, and all-around creep when it comes to women. With that in mind, we probably shouldn’t be all too shocked to learn of new allegations concerning his predatory behavior—this time from a new BBC documentary, uncreatively titled, Trump: Is The President a Sex Pest?

The documentary, which recently aired as part of the network’s investigative series Panorama and is being shown in the United States for the first time on Saturday, alleges that during the ‘80s and ‘90s, Trump hosted and attended a series of wild bacchanals featuring booze, coke, and young women—often teenagers—who “were there as consumables,” according to one male attendee who spoke with the program.

Trump: U.S. Can’t Afford Veterans’ Health Care Without Cuts

Last year, the Trump administration insisted that its regressive tax cuts were so important, it was worth adding $1.5 trillion to the national debt to ensure their passage. Now, the White House is warning Congress that the United States cannot afford to add $1.6 billion to the deficit to expand health-care options for veterans.
