Trump Threatens Withdrawal from 1848 Treaty

After attacking Japan today and "lamenting what he views as an unequal military alliance" Wednesday, claiming that if the US is attacked, Japan "doesn't have to help us at all" and "can watch it on the Sony television."

 Trump also asked why Mexico got paid millions for losing a war against the US in "the Treaty of Guadalupe"...

He went on "Who names a Treaty after the woman who used to clean my resort residence in New Jersey?"

Trump Appts GOP Partisan Hack to Fed

Stephen Moore, a total Republican political hack. His economic publishing history below.

McConnell on the floor of the Senate today.  He thinks playing the victim will, as usual, go over well with the Fox News indoctrinated morons of the Republican base:

Poison Pills in Trump, McConnell Wall Bill 'Compromise'

This is part of the "Great  Compromise" that Trump and McConnell made over the weekend to end the Trump government shutdown. This bill has nothing to do with the Wall or DACA.  It seeks to overhaul the immigration system to deny asylum application at the US border, make judicial review illegal, make asylum acceptance a whim of Homeland Security, and put a low limit on asylum acceptances per year with no provision for exceptions..

Orwellian name "Central American Minors Protection Act of 2019."
