MARCH 19TH - 25TH (Part 2 - Gorsuch hearings, DT's nepotism and conflicts of interest ramp up, and the attack in Mosul)

Alright, it would be remiss of me not to at least give a little nod to the biggest news of THIS day which is… 

On March 30th, 2017, disgraced retired General and disgraced retired National Security Advisor Mike Flynn offered to testify to the FBI and Congress in exchange for immunity. Apparently, no one has taken him up on the offer, perhaps because they’re more interested in… ahem… locking him up. 

Anyway, on to the promised topics, the quick one first: 

NEIL GORSUCH HEARINGS

The Washington Post has a good play by play of the hearings if you want to dig into them.

NEPOTISM, CONFLICTS OF INTEREST, AND LEGAL ISSUES  

Apparently, this was the week that the Trump family just entirely stopped giving a damn about keeping up appearances. But there is some pushback from the great state of New York.

That’s all I can get through for tonight. I am sickened and angry at the deaths of innocent people we are supposed to be fighting to protect. People we won’t take in to our own country but whose homes we will bomb. I keep thinking of misguided people who voted for this man because he “wouldn’t lead us into a bunch of wars like Hillary will,” and I just feel ill. 

Next update tomorrow on foreign policy disasters, detrimental agriculture policies that are flying under the radar, attacks on womens’ and LGBT rights, and immigration police horrors. I really should have left the Russia stuff for last instead of back loading most of the awful stuff.
