Trump sick of hearing Muhammad Ali Was The Greatest.

Trump threatens to nuke Norway and Sweden in the morning because he wasn't awarded Nobel prize for Humility. Says system dishonest, fake, rigged and they should be ashamed.  #MuhammadAliWasNOTTheGreatestIAmTreasonToSayHeWas

After the parade, can it be about us instead of about him?  At least every now and then? We know you are the greatest, #Muhammad Ali.


Donald Trump was asked if he could quote any Bible verses. 

He replied: "Give a man a fish and he will eat for a day; deport him and you do not have to feed him again."

Trump 20:17

Looks large to me even in the rain! Sad that ratings still matters so much to him though.  He should quit running and start doing something for me!

Trump's actual crowd as it rained


An actual tweet he sent after Obama won.. as a sign. You can't talk back to facts. 👌🏻

I dare you to say the tweet is fake. I just retweeted, in case you need to see it to believe it.


To unite us, I'm betting we are at war with Iran soon.  As a nation, we are predisposed to war and so far Trump does not sound like a peacemonger.  War, and war related industries, is one of our largest capitalistic endeavors. Plus war detracts from other issues.

Hate is such a great uniter.  But sometimes I forget what groups we are supposed to hate.  He needs to tweet us a little more often. 


anyone else suffering from the pain of whiplash logic?

Here’s a vote for a guy that was excited about becoming president and left hating it. This man spent his life in public service to the United States, serving as Minister to the United Kingdom (before Ministers were renamed Ambassadors), US Secretary of State, US Senator, Minister to Russia, and a member of the US House of Representatives. He didn’t actively seek his party’s nomination for president, but he certainly did nothing to dissuade it and happily accepted it.

After four miserable years in office, on the way to the Capitol for the inauguration of his successor on March 4, 1861, James Buchanan told Abraham Lincoln, “If you are as happy in entering the White House as I shall feel on returning to Wheatland [his home in Pennsylvania], you are a happy man indeed.”


Sean Spicer, the White House press secretary, displayed a New York Times photograph on Saturday when discussing news media coverage of President Trump's inauguration.
With False Claims, Trump Attacks Media on Turnout and Intelligence Rift


The president falsely accused journalists of inventing a rift between him and spy agencies and of deliberately understating the size of his inauguration crowd.



Court Rules Against Former IT Administrator Who Was Accused Of Locking The School Out Of Its System

mediawiki_1-25_sign_in_formThere is a bizarre case out of Indianapolis where fired IT employee Triano Williams took  the password for a school account that controlled access for emails and course material for over 2000 students.  Williams accused the American College of Education of firing him for racial reasons and allegedly refused to hand over the password.  The for-profit college accused Williams of effective extortion in offering to hand over the password in exchange for a clear letter of reference and $200,000.


A Truly Bad Start: The Administration Holds First Press Conference With Attack on Media On Crowd Estimates

by jonathanturley
screen-shot-2017-01-22-at-7-06-26-amThe Trump Administration has a rocky kick off this week due to both things outside of its control and things of its own making. First there was the planned protests against the new President -- demonstrations both on Inaugural Day and the next day that I criticized. Those were outside the control of the Administration. However, then there was a remarkably disappointing and lackluster Inaugural speech followed by a truly dreadful press conference. This was the first press conference for the Administration - a key moment for any new Administration. Instead of emphasizing the positive and taking control of the news cycle with strategic announcements, White House Press secretary Sean Spicer largely criticized the press and then made a series a highly dubious factual assertions about the size of Trump's audience. It was a performance that even  stalwart supporters likeCharles Krauthammer on Fox called "weird."  Most of us who have previously watched or covered Inaugurations thought that the crowd seemed smaller.  So what?  Tens of millions of people voted for Trump. That is the measure that counts.  Yet, Spicer went on the attack with some shaky assertions and guaranteed that this tempest in a teapot would be the focus of the next news cycle -- and gave critics an opening to lambast the new president.  I have said this before that friends of this President need to call him out when his Administration goofs if they want this Administration to succeed.  This is one such moment and shows an early lack of discipline and message.


Not the news.

Bridget.  I'm beginning to suspect many of you are not as excited about new background paper as I am.  Perhaps is because you are not attending Harvard's photography class like I am?


Trump’s real war isn’t with the media. It’s with facts.

Sorry losers and haters, but my I.Q. is one of the highest -and you all know it! Please don't feel so stupid or insecure,it's not your fault


Chinese Chief Justice: Courts Must Reject “Erroneous ” Western Concepts Of Independence And Support The Party

by jonathanturley
zhouqiangFor those brave reformers who have struggled to introduce the semblance of a true judiciary and the rule of law in China, the recent interview of Chief Justice Zhou Qiang must have been devastating. Zhou told lawyers and judges that they needed to avoid the temptation of the West in wanting an independent judiciary that follows the rule of law. With that, Zhou placed himself in history as a voice for injustice -- a lawyer who committed his life to fighting against the law.
