GOP operatives say GA-06 House race trending away from Handel. No wonder she's sending fake packages to herself and her neighbors to rally up the "Liberals are evil" vote.

Oh I need the 20th to hurry up and get here so Ossoff's win can be set in stone. Then we can prep and start laying the foundation for Stacey Abrams to win the governorship in 2018.

The note was clearly fake judging from the exaggerated language in it. She just seems like the type that send herself fake letters, because she's desperate to be in elected office.

The U.S. Office of Government Ethics released President Donald Trump's most recent financial disclosure, and it shows that the former real estate mogul carries at least $315 million in liabilities — $130 million to Deutsche Bank alone.

 

this would seem to confirm the conspiracy theories Maddow has been floating forever.

That's not it. Newt doesn't care about his wives. Never has, never will.

 

He's scared. In some ways he seems even more scared that Donnie.

He cares about this one, because when the SP was appointed he praised it. now, with his wife going for this, he's blasting it. timing is everything......Trump is finding that out, and Newt will sell his soul and put party over nation especially for the current woman he may or may not be cheating on.

I don't know if anyone has been following the Grenfell Tower fire in London.  This article makes it clear people in leadership positions knew about it and pushed it aside because it would have made "too many people homeless". How about resettling idiots. ALl of the ugliness of the Tories and the GOP is no longer hidden. The sad part is those here now revel in it the cruelty of the GOP.

Oh and can Theresa May be more robotic, uncaring, and money grubbing. Seriously after the disastrous election, why is she still PM.  I lost count of how many times she mentioned 5 million pounds as if that is the solution

HORRIFIC

 

"Kensington and Chelsea council and tenants management organisation did not respond to more than 130 offers to put up displaced residents of Grenfell Tower and its neighbouring blocks, a volunteer who came to assist in the relief efforts has said.

Michal Nachmany, a researcher at the London School of Economics, told the Guardian that she spent hours on Wednesday compiling a list of people willing to provide a roof for families and individuals - with some even offering entire flats to the dispossessed.

She even offered to put up two families herself at her home in Chiswick. “My kids can fit into a single room,” she said.

Nachmany sent the list to senior workers at the KCTMO and the local council. However, as yet she has not received any news that any of the offers have been matched to families or individuals in need. It comes amid reports that displaced residents are still sleeping on floors and have not been housed.

In an email to the Guardian, Nachmany, 40, said:

I know that the emails were received (verified by phone), but I don’t know if any action has been taken. Hearing that people are still sleeping on the floor, rather than at least spending the first few days with host families is heartbreaking and outrageous. For example, I offered to host six people. Never heard from anyone, and I doubt if any matchmaking was done between the local offers and the people in need. There is no lack of volunteers or of offers to help - just lack of coordination and organisation. Would be happy if you could support any efforts to resolve this terrible mess and make sure everyone has a proper bed tonight."

United States Commission on Civil Rights is launching an investigation of the Trump administration.

Civil Rights Commission Will Launch Two-Year Probe of Trump Administration

 

Also, 1/4 of the Presidential Advisory Council on HIV/AIDS have resigned in protest of Trump's policies.

TRUMP DOESN’T CARE ABOUT HIV. WE’RE OUTTA HERE

 

And speaking of incompetents in charge of nations,

 

Yes @JaneAusten I've been following the tragedy of the Grenfell Towers fire.  Just yesterday, I was looking through the online portfolio of an artist who died in the fire.  It is heartbreaking, as well as infuriating, seeing as the Kensington area is one of the wealthiest areas in London, England, U.K. and probably the world.

 

The tenants had complained for years and last year, apparently the tenants association wrote on their blog a warning that it appeared that nothing short of a catastrophic event would change the status quo.

Sadly, they were right!

These are the true snowflakes.  Why is it that Delta Airlines felt the need to announce that they were pulling support when they supported the production years ago, when an African American actor bearing a resemblance to Obama was used in the production?

 

These people clearly have no idea what the play is truly about and they're too ignorant to find out.

More on the Grenfell Tower tragedy. I've seen other videos but I will only post this one so as not to overwhelm.  

This is searing.
