Americans give Trump lowest 6-month approval rating of any president in polls dating back 70 years:

JUST IN:
***A 36% approval rate for Trump means that he’s the most unpopular President in modern history.***

The Reichstag Fire Next Time - The coming crackdown

HARPERS:


When each day brings more news than we are used to seeing in a week, and the kind of news that only the most catastrophic imagination can accommodate, we find ourselves talking about the Reichstag fire. Time feels both accelerated and slowed down, and so we imagine that we have been talking about the fire for years. It is the new president’s new clothes: invisible, yet always present in our perception of him.

The Reichstag fire, it goes almost without saying, will be a terrorist attack, and it will mark our sudden, obvious, and irreversible descent into autocracy. Here is what it looks like: On a sunny morning you turn on the television as you make coffee, or the speaker in your shower streams the news, or the radio comes on when you turn the ignition key in your car. The voices of the newscasters are familiar, but their pitch is altered, and they speak with a peculiar haste.

...........

To confront the threat we face, it is not enough to advance the rational argument that an American has a lesser chance of dying in a terrorist attack carried out by a refugee than of being struck by lightning. Nor is it enough to focus on the grave injustice of tarnishing immigrants as potential criminals and Muslim refugees as potential terrorists. It is most certainly not enough to revel in the beauty, intelligence, and wit of the many people who have come out to protest Trump’s attacks on humanity and its planet. There is, in fact, no room for self-congratulation in the actions we need to take.

To be worthy of the lofty name “resistance,” the opposition to Trump must aim to break the country’s post-9/11 trajectory. It must question the very premise of the war on terror, challenge the very fact of a perpetual state of emergency, and confront not only the Trump presidency but the legacy of the Bush and Obama Administrations. Organizations such as the A.C.L.U. have been doing this for years. The Trump presidency has not only, paradoxically, brought the group millions of dollars, it has also, potentially, rallied millions of people to the cause. Now is the time to stop waiting for the Reichs­tag fire and start battling the consequences of the one we already had—Trump and the legal and public conditions that are enabling his presidency.

Sen. John McCain Has Surgery to Remove Blood Clot Above Eye
by PHIL HELSEL

Republican Sen. John McCain underwent a surgical procedure to remove a blood clot from above his left eye on Friday and will spend the next week recovering in Arizona — an absence on Capitol Hill that could cause the delay of a key procedural vote on a health care bill.

The minimally invasive surgery at the Mayo Clinic Hospital in Phoenix was a success and went "very well," the Mayo Clinic said. The 80-year-old senator from Arizona is in good spirits and resting comfortably, his office said.

McCain’s absence could cause the Republican leadership to delay a procedural vote on a health care bill, as they will need 50 Republican senators to vote in support of moving on to the bill.

Because two Republican senators have already said they will vote no on the motion to proceed, if McCain is a yes vote and were to miss the vote, it would fail 49-50.
