Update: US citizen who said Trump’s Muslim ban killed his mom lied, imam confirms

  • Feb. 1, 2017, 4:00 p.m.: Following the publishing of this article, Fox 2 posted a followup story saying Mike Hager, who said his mother passed away of a medical condition after being denied entry to the U.S. despite holding a green card, lied to their reporters.
  • Hager’s mother died five days before the ban went into effect, with Trump’s de facto Muslim ban playing no role, Imam Husham Al-Hussainy told Fox 2. Read more

51% of Trump voters think the “Bowling Green massacre” justifies Trump’s Muslim ban

  • A new poll suggests that more than half of Trump voters believe the fake Bowling Green massacre is why Trump’s travel ban is so necessary.
  • The new national poll, released on Friday by Public Policy Polling, surveyed 712 registered voters. 
  • When asked if they either disagreed or agreed with the statement, “The Bowling Green massacre shows why we need Donald Trump’s executive order on immigration,” a full 51% of Trump voters said they agreed
  • Just 23% said they disagreed (for comparison, 90% of Hillary Clinton voters said they disagreed with the statement).
  • Of course, the “Bowling Green massacre” is a lie, a made-up terrorist attack from Kellyanne Conway, who mentioned it in a Feb. 2 interview with MSNBC’s Chris Matthews. Read more (2/10/17 11;57 AM)

European Union court rules employers can ban Islamic headscarves in the workplace

  • A European Union court ruling on Tuesday is giving employers the green light to ban visible religious symbols in the workplace, including Islamic headscarves.
  • According to the Guardian, the ruling stipulates that in order to enforce such a policy, workplaces must have a blanket ban on religious symbols officially on the books — employers can’t simply tell an employee to remove their hijab, for example. Read more (3/14/17 7:21 AM)

So I have a “Facebook friend” who was celebrating and having a good old day chatting on Facebook about how the Muslim ban was a good idea. Today, she’s upset that her tires got slashed and she was stranded hours from her house because she had a Trump poster in her backseat. Now she’s upset that she’s been left stranded somewhere because of her views. I’m just like, gee isn’t that just terrible to be left stranded in an area because your views don’t mesh with others?

Kellyanne Conway cites ‘Bowling Green massacre’ that never happened to defend travel ban
She appears to have been confused about arrests of two Iraqi men in Bowling Green, Ky., in 2013 for plotting to ship money and weapons for terrorism in Iraq.

The bigger the lie, or pack of lies, the more people will believe it!

Justice League, Meet The Avengers

Batsy has created a chatroom.

Batsy has added Alfredo Pasta.

Batsy: Alfred.

Alfredo Pasta: Yes, Master Bruce?

Batsy: Was it Barry or Oliver this time?

Alfredo Pasta: It was the young speedster, Master Bruce.

Batsy has added Bear.

Batsy: Stop. Changing. Our. Names.

Bear: Alfredo Pasta, you snitched on me?

Alfredo Pasta: No regrets, son.

Alfredo Pasta: Was there something you needed, Master Bruce?

Batsy: I want to know the current status of the rest of the league.

Alfredo Pasta: Inviting them over for dinner? I shall prepare the table.

Batsy: No - a meeting that involves food, Alfred!

Bear: Ooooh are we having Lobster Thermidor? Arthur won’t like that.

Bear: I’ll be back in a… Flash. Gotta take care of my good pal Captain Cold.

Bear has left the chat.

Alfredo Pasta: It seems all members of the JLA are currently preoccupied.

Batsy: Even Clark? What could Arthur be doing? And Diana?

Alfredo Pasta: Saving the world, of course.

Alfredo Pasta: Except for Arthur. He’s at an aquarium.

Batsy: Are there any criminals out?

Alfredo Pasta: I’m afraid not, Master Bruce. Master Dick has done an exceptional job of keeping them at bay.

Batsy:

Batsy: What’s the Joker up to?

Alfredo Pasta: He’s in hiding after your last debacle with him.

The calls, emails, and protests are working!

The jackass that proposed that “sell off 3.3 million acres of public land” bill is withdrawing it!

  • Also, at UC Berkley protesters forced them to cancel a previously scheduled speech by that Milo nazi
  • The Dems are finally starting to show some backbone. They successfully delayed 3 confirmations by a day by boycotting the hearing entirely. The Republicans had to change the parliamentary rules so they could approve the nominees without them being present, but it’s a sign that Dems just might finally be listening to their constituents
  • As of this moment, all Dems are voting against Betsy Devos AND two GOP Senators. Only one more GOP Senate vote is needed, and Betsy DeVos will not be confirmed!
  • Jeff Sessions confirmation is delayed again–because GOP thinks they might need him on the Senate to vote for DeVos
  • Trump walked back a planned executive order on LGBTQ rights, announcing that Obama’s protections for federal LGBTQ employees would stand (for now) after massive pushback
  • Trump also walked back a portion of his Muslim ban. Green card holders are now exempt. And we all already know about the states, cities, corporations, and individuals now suing him over it.
  • Harley Davidson cancelled a scheduled visit from him because they didn’t want the bad press.
  • The House Intelligence Committee has now launched its own investigation into possible collusion between Trump and Russia
  • Representatives are actually talking about the volume of calls, emails, and protests at their offices. We are actually getting through to them!
  • Trump continues to be embroiled in scandal. It’s coming out that the recent raid in Yemen that got an 8 year old girl and Navy SEAL killed was based on faulty intelligence that Obama originally vetoed. Trump went with it (and there’s evidence that Bannon and his son-in-law were there for the decision) and people are dead. In fact, it’s coming out that even more women and children were killed during the raid than originally reported.
  • And all across the country, people are in the streets every single day. I know I am. We need to keep the pressure on our Representatives. Your calls, voice mails, and letters are making a difference. Your LOUD and VISIBLE dissent are making a difference.

But don’t forget the most important part! Register to vote NOW before the GOP starts rolling out new laws to make it more onerus. And don’t stop with you. Make sure all your friends and family are registered. These bureaucratic things take time so DO NOT WAIT UNTIL THE ELECTION TO REGISTER TO VOTE. And when November 2018 comes around DO NOT VOTE ALONE. Take at least 5 people to the polls with you. Order your mail-in ballots early, and make a night of filling them out together. Don’t just pick your friends/family who already vote. Talk to the ones who never want to talk about politics. We’ve got to get as many people as possible!

Trump to lift federal coal ban, other green rules, next week: White House
U.S. President Donald Trump is likely to sign an executive order next week that lifts a ban on new federal coal mining leases and starts the process of killing other Obama-era initiatives to combat global climate change, a White House official said.

But the speech! He played nice for over an hour! He pivoted! He won’t be trying to push the same exact agenda against everything good and reasonable, right? Right?!
