    Defense Secretary Esper: Trump wanted to ‘quietly’ bomb Mexico

    “To be clear, Trump wanted to bomb Mexico, our ally and southern neighbor in what would certainly be an act of war. And he wanted to do it clandestinely, possibly in such a way that blamed another actor other than the United States,” says Ayman Mohyeldin on revelations in Esper’s new book.

    Steve Schmidt Drops A 2008 McCain Campaign Russia Bombshell

    Schmidt knows a lot more than what wrote in the Twitter threads,
    but the important takeaway is that the Russians have been infiltrating the Republican Party
    at the highest levels for at least 15 years.

    “Trump’s nomination and election to the presidency appear to have been part of a long operation by the Russians.
    John McCain, the war hero, had Russian influence in his presidential campaign right under his nose.
    Even after Sen. McCain’s death, the McCain Institute has Putin’s people on its board.

    There are a lot of dirty secrets surrounding the John McCain presidential campaign in 2008,
    and one of the biggest secrets that Schmidt is exposing is the fact that the Republican Party appears to have been under Russian influence at very high levels since at least 2008.

    America needs to pay attention to what Steve Schmidt is saying because the truth is coming out about the GOP.”

    ’17th Century Misogynist’ Cited Multiple Times In Justice Alito’s Draft Opinion

    “Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito’s draft opinion that would overturn Roe v. Wade cites a virulent 17th century misogynist multiple times. Alito also saying some supporters of “liberal access to abortion” are trying to suppress Black births, among other statements, are anaylzed by Joy Reid and her guests on The ReidOut.”

      Who is trying to suppress Black people except for Republicans who hate Black people and other minorities?

  18. May 9, 2022 at 3:26 pm

    Buried in the Alito Roe draft opinion is the idea that Roe needs to be overturned
    to create a domestic supply
    of infants for adoption

    This is some Handmaid’s Tale stuff that not long ago would have been attributed to the mind of Margaret Atwood and a few extremist Republican politicians…

    If conservatives cared about human rights, the rights of women, and the rights of children,
    they would abandon this ideological jihad that is the exact opposite
    of respecting personal liberties and caring for children.
    Overturning Roe will be a disaster for the nation,
    and the Supreme Court will be responsible for the damage caused to women and children.

      Grow up Barrett.
      Who do you think you are talking to, what do you tell your children?

      How about this:
      2.5 million years ago, evolution of genus Homo in Africa, first stone tools.
      2 million years ago, humans spread from Africa to Eurasia.
      300,000 years ago, daily use of fire.
      200,000 years ago, Homo sapiens evolves in East Africa.

      = how the Hell we survived millions of years with child centered parenting before tuppence ha’penny Barrett had the audacity.

    • May 9, 2022 at 3:52 pm

      Human infants are not little adults or puppies, who are also mammals.
      Someone i used to know, Gabor Maté works with and does world class research with drug addicts. He finds that breast feeding your child and staying beside her/him for at least 3 years, protects against later addiction and self-harm.
      Humans come out of the womb after only 9 months.
      As infants we’re completely and utterly helpless, cannot even raise our own heads.
      Contrary to what the toxic and allergic formula companies want you to believe, babies do not self-nurture, and surviving the first year is not a given.

      Friends who have survived foster care all report how it was brutal, just brutal.

    • May 9, 2022 at 3:57 pm

      imho, maybe the Party of Putin and Pedolphilia thinks they’re cleverly creating their next generation
      of brown shirts. Trump started that when he illegally abducted children and infants, and jailed them. Billionaire Betsy sold some of those who survived, am guessing to right wing families.

    Angry mobs in Sri Lanka have burned down several homes belonging to the ruling Rajapaksas and MPs, following clashes with government supporters.

    The violence capped a day of unrest that saw PM Mahinda Rajapaksa quit amid mass protests at his government’s handling of the economic crisis.

    But it failed to assuage demonstrators, who attempted to storm his official residence while he was holed up inside.

    Five people have died and more than 190 have been injured since Monday.

    An island-wide curfew has been extended to Wednesday morning as authorities seek to quell the violence.

    Many are still calling for President Gotabaya Rajapaksa, brother of Mahinda, to leave office, following weeks of escalating demonstrations over soaring prices and power cuts since last month.

    Job creation hot streak continues, as May totals break a record
    For the first time on record, the U.S. economy has now had 12 straight months with jobs gains above 400,000.

    “So far in 2022, the economy has created over 2 million jobs, and that’s after just four months. By any fair measure, that’s an extraordinary total, which is nearly identical to the total of jobs created in all of 2019”

    Austin Goolsbee, former Council of Economic Advisers Chairman,
    to Alicia Menendez:

    “Well I’ll tell you, Alicia, it depends which part of the economy you’re looking at.
    The job market is red hot.
    Looks fabulous.
    That the unemployment rate is already 3.6 percent and we still added more than 400,000 jobs in the month is almost jaw-dropping. I mean, that’s a fabulous number.

    And normally, when the unemployment rate is that low, it’s hard to add that many jobs.
    At the same time, you’ve got inflation made worse by the war in Ukraine and what is happening in commodities. Made worse by COVID.
    And that we shifted what we were spending away from services and on to physical goods and that over loaded the supply chain and that led to a bunch of problems.

    So what the Fed is trying to do is navigate a little bridge. \And I guess it’s kind of like if you got in the shower and you want to take a nice temperature shower, you’ve got some burning hot water is coming from part of it, and then there’s some cold water coming in and the Fed is trying to balance those off and raise rates to cool some of it without sending us into recession. Let’s hope they can do it.”

    India’s Supreme Court has put a controversial colonial-era sedition law on hold that critics say is used to stifle dissent.

    The judges asked the government to refrain from registering any new cases which invoke sedition until it finishes hearing petitions challenging it.

    The court also asked the authorities to pause all existing sedition trials.

    The government has been accused of using the law against critics, such as politicians, journalists and activists.

    On Tuesday, the government said that they would review the law after earlier defending it.
