Court rules Trump administration cannot block an undocumented young woman from an abortion  

After the Trump administration's repeated attempts to block an undocumented young woman from having an abortion, on Friday, an appeals court in Washington, D.C. ruled that she must be allowed to obtain an abortion.  A D.C. appeals court has ruled that an undocumented, pregnant teenager who is in U.S. custody must be allowed to have an abortion, but gave the federal government until Oct. 31 to find her a sponsor so that the government does not have to facilitate the procedure. Jane D...

Koch group Americans for Prosperity pouring $1 million into Virginia governor's race  

Koch brothers affiliate Americans for Prosperity is spending big in the race for Virginia governor, targeting Democrat Ralph Northam with $1 million or more in mail and digital ads. They're even attacking Northam for supporting a bipartisan bill under a Republican governor: The latest push includes a mailer that blasts Northam for supporting an increase in taxes on sales, gasoline and home and car purchases.

Trump voters not happy that maybe they're losing their Obamacare  

Campaign Action In another in the long series, "Trump regrets," meet some voters who didn't think he was really going to take away their health care. Tom Westerman voted for Donald Trump in last year's election but says he might not do so again after the president cut off billions of dollars in Obamacare subsidies to health insurance companies. "It really upset me," said Westerman, 63, a self-described "middle-class guy" with an annual household income of about $60,000 in the western

White House: Kelly's lies unassailable, his experience of Trump's phone call outweighs soldier's mom  

White House Chief of Staff John Kelly and his military service are now nothing but a tool that will be overtly wielded as a weapon to shield the White House against all honest inquiries. That's exactly how Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders used Kelly's credentials as a former Marine general and Gold Star father to paint him and the outright lies he relayed Thursday as unassailable. Asked about Kelly's false assertion that Rep. Frederica Wilson had bragged about securing $20 million for a

Trump interviewed US attorney candidates who would have jurisdiction in investigations of him  

This is not how this works. This is not at all how it works.  President Donald Trump has personally interviewed at least two potential candidates for U.S. attorney positions in New York, according to two sources familiar with the matter—a move that critics say raises questions about whether they can be sufficiently independent from the president. Trump has interviewed Geoffrey Berman, who is currently at the law firm Greenberg Traurig for the job of U.S. attorney for the Southern Distric...

Gullible Trump falls for fake news, links UK crime rise to 'spread of Islamic terror'

Obama says Gillespie's racist campaign 'trying to deliver fear...as cynical as politics gets'  

During a campaign stop for Virginia Democratic gubernatorial candidate Ralph Northam, former President Barack Obama ripped into Republican candidate Ed Gillespie's Trumpian embrace of anti-immigrant smear ads, saying that what Gillespie's "really trying to deliver is fear … it's just as cynical as politics gets": "We have seen this so many times before," said Obama, who spent five minutes tearing into the strategy.

Georgia Republican: Since people with HIV don't die so fast anymore, can we quarantine them?  

Georgia state Rep. Betty Price is not just any old Republican state lawmaker. She's married to disgraced former Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price and, like him, she's a doctor. That information is by way of context to demonstrate that Betty Price's recent comments about people living with HIV are doubly or triply more disturbing than they might seem on the surface. Which is already damn disturbing because, in short, Price wonders if quarantine might be an option for people with...

Campaign Action It's been 20 days since the Republican Congress reneged on the 9 million of the nation's children and families, allowing the spending authorization for the Children's Health Insurance Program. Because that is on its face so incredibly callous, we tend to forget that along with CHIP, other critical health programs for vulnerable populations have been abandoned as well. It's not just the children who are going to suffer. She has inflammation in her gallbladder, frequent f

John Kelly invents his own bit of fake news to support his takedown of a Florida congresswoman  

How exactly White House Chief of Staff John Kelly came to the conclusion that Rep. Frederica Wilson (D-FL) had claimed credit for securing $20 million for an FBI building in Florida is, to put it mildly, a total mystery. It's an accusation Kelly made Wednesday as he attacked Rep. Wilson in an attempt to scapegoat her for Donald Trump's abysmal handling of fallen soldiers and Gold Star families. Kelly had attended the dedication of the FBI building in 2015, where Wilson spoke about the two ...

Trayvon Martin's mother calls out companies selling NRA-branded 'murder insurance'  

If you're the kind of "responsible gun owner" who expects that your responsible gun ownership might leave someone dead sometime soon, the NRA has something to sell you: insurance. Carry Guard insurance will pay out if a killer is found in court to have been acting in self-defense or if a case against them is dropped—the basic plan covers up to $250,000 in civil protection and $50,000 in criminal defense, but there's also a "gold plus" plan paying out up to $1.5 million and $250,000...

More questions than answers about Niger attack that left four U.S. soldiers dead  

While there's no serious question that Donald Trump told the widow of Sgt. La David Johnson that "he knew what he signed up for," there are a lot of questions remaining about the attack in which Johnson and three other soldiers were killed. What information lapse allowed their team to be ambushed in unarmored pickup trucks without air support? Why was Johnson's body not recovered for two days after the attack? What exactly is the U.S. mission in Niger, anyway? Rachel Maddow has raised f...

Campaign Action Since 2008, Gallup and Sharecare have been taking quarterly surveys of the uninsured rate. In November, 2016 they recorded a record low rate, at 10.9 percent. But since then? The percentage of U.S. adults lacking health insurance rose in the third quarter of 2017 to 12.3%, up 0.6 percentage points from the previous quarter and 1.4 points since the end of 2016.

Late Thursday night, Senate Republicans passed their non-binding budget resolution, a budget that recommends cutting Medicare by $473 billion and Medicaid by $1 trillion in order to give $1.5 trillion in tax cuts to the wealthy. Oh, and it adds $1.5 trillion to the deficit. That's so Republicans can come back in several years and yell about the deficit and push for more cuts to social insurance programs. The bill passed 51-49, with Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) the only Republican voting against. ...

Trump's opioid emergency promise came as news to the officials who'd need to make it happen  

It's a fire drill in the Trump administration after Donald Trump promised on Monday that "next week" he'd make an emergency declaration on the opioid crisis. His advisers and the agencies that would have to make an emergency response happen were not and are not ready to do that, and go figure—it's just not that easy: Emergency declarations are typically used to respond to isolated events such as hurricanes and floods, or disease outbreaks. Using one to combat a nationwide epide...

Two days after Donald Trump insisted it was "totally fabricated" that he told a grieving widow that a soldier killed in an ambush in Niger "knew what he signed up for," we're still waiting for the "proof" he claimed to have that it was a fabrication by Rep. Frederica Wilson. And though that phone call has been a major focus of the past two days, and Trump is tweeting about it again, that proof? Still nowhere to be seen. In fact, during those two days, White House press secreta...

In fairness, he isn't the only one trying to give a big handout to wealthy people. The top priority of Republicans in Congress is cutting taxes. The more you look at the tax "reform" plan, the more ridiculous it appears. Though the tax cut plan is sketchy on details, it appears to be heavily (and I mean heavily) weighted towar...

Donald Trump is struggling to get past the bad look of—once again—feuding with a Gold star family, this time having told the widow of Sgt. La David Johnson that "he knew what he signed up for." Trump also seemed not to know Johnson's name when he spoke to his family or Johnson's wife Myeshia's name when later insisting that he didn't say "he knew what he signed up for." Facing that firestorm, T...

Hispanic Federation Fund for Puerto Rico Relief Link - From the GREAT STATE OF MAINE… Just a Quick Reminder  Since Trump has slashed the budget for promoting the ACA's federal exchange enrollment period, it's up to us freedom fighter guerrilla blogger liberators to pass the word through, among other things, our resistance tunnels and short-wave crystal radios and courier squirrels.

Well, despite all the evidence, I somehow keep finding myself amazed that Donald Trump finds things to do that are dumber and more offensive than whatever the last dumb and offensive thing was.

Abbreviated pundit roundup: A disgraceful presidency

On the more substantial issue of health care, Trump apparently told Sen. Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.) to craft a d...

Bernie Sanders crushing Ted Cruz on tax reform is so much fun to watch!  

It's easy to forget that one of the main reasons Donald Trump is president is that he won the Republican Party's nomination—handily. If you go back in that fantasy time machine where President Obama is still in office and Donald Trump is smacking around GOP candidates, you'll recall that Princeton's top debater, and all-around sack of waste, Sen. Ted Cruz got his ass handed to him all of the time. That's because Ted Cruz is not only terribly unlikeable, he's also filled with worthl...
