McFaul

Why is Trump open to letting Russia interrogate Americans, including former U.S. ambassador McFaul? 

This is about as sensible as sacrificing virgins to the God of the Mountain.

When asked whether Russia was still trying to interfere with US elections, Trump said "No"  Now the White House claims that this "No" was indicating no more questions.
  This seems like an Alice in Wonderland scene.

Trumped up double negative
I call it a lie

The fog had lifted
So we were able to glimpse

CloseCall

Not sure how close it was, but after distinguished military career General Douglas MacArthur might have, despite being justifiedly removed from command by President Truman, might well have become President. After a strong, rousing speech before Congress, MacArthur received public adulation, which aroused expectations that he would run for president. Fortunately, he did not run and we were spared that outcome. Although he had a better brain, MacArthur had an arrogance and ego even larger than Trump's.

Border Policy

Thousands of asylum seekers arrive at our southern border,  Nearly all of them are legitimate.What do we do? Put them in detention!

I think that whenever Trump visited the Statue of Liberty, he thought the Lazarus poem read{

" Give us your weary, your rich,
  Your huddled donors,
  Wishing wealth tax free"

Sup. Ct.

Kavanaugh Is Nominee for Supreme Court

Strong legal mind, but with right wing views that probably help Court to erode our democratic values such as equality, privacy/ right of choice, and fair voting procedures/
