FYI: Matching Donations for Hurricane Harvey

Found this info on DailyKos https://www.dailykos.com/stories/2017/8/27/1693753/-The-Cajun-Navy-Is-On-Its-Way-To-Houston-THIS-Is-What-Makes-America-Great. Went to his Twitter page, donations to Red Cross are pouring in.


Bill Prady (@billprady) will match $10 donations (or more) plus double it if you send a message to Trump. Donations to 90999 will be billed directly to your phone. Here are the instructions:

Text HARVEY to 90999 to donate $10, show me proof and I'll match it. Show you tweeted Trump to spend the "wall" $ on TX and I'll X2 it.

They're doing great work and can use our help! Please consider donating and have it matched to boot.

Schiff: Trump needs 'more adults in the room'

The White House staff shakeup must continue, California Democratic Rep. Adam Schiff said Sunday.

The comments from the top Democrat on the House intelligence committee on CNN's "State of the Union" came after the exit of chief White House strategist Steve Bannon on Friday and the departure of several other senior staff. Democrats continue to call for President Donald Trump to remove others, including Stephen Miller as senior adviser and Sebastian Gorka as deputy assistant.

"We need the very best people around him in the White House," Schiff said of Trump. "And that means not people like Bannon, not people like Miller, not people like Gorka, but rather some more adults in the room."

I am ending both. Thank you all!

Replying to @realDonaldTrump

Pressure wasn't on the CEO's. You made it easy for them. They didn't want to be associated with supporting white supremacy

The pressure was on YOU! You didn't want to be pressured into being a moral and decent human being by standing against vile racial hatred.

Racism & murder r unequivocally reprehensible & r not morally equivalent to anything else that happened in Charlottesville -Denise Morrison

CEO's of Merck, Campbell's Soup, Under Armour, 3M, Intel, the AFL-CIO & others were right 2 distance themselves from 1 who supports bigotry

It's too late to play clean up 45, you have been exposed as the nation's alt-right white supremacist neo-nazi president. HEIL to the Chief!!

In classic Trump style, you shut down the council so the rest couldn't quit. "You can't quit! YOU'RE FIRED!" PATHETIC!!!


Would you just/i resign NOW, please!

Merck CEO resigned from tRump council due to failure to condemn white supremacists

Merck is an American pharmaceutical company and one of the largest pharmaceutical companies in the world. It's CEO resigned from the president's manufacturing council stating ""America's leaders must honor our fundamental values by clearly rejecting expressions of hatred, bigotry and group supremacy."

Trump formed the manufacturing council a week after his inauguration as part of a push to create jobs. At the time, the White House hailed the council, including Frazier, as "some of the world's most successful and creative business leaders."

Within minutes Trump fired back at Frazier:

Donald J. Trump
Now that Ken Frazier of Merck Pharma has resigned
from President's Manufacturing Council,
he will have more time to LOWER RIPOFF DRUG PRICES!

Twitter backlash:

Eugene Gu, MD
When the Merck CEO denounces the KKK,
Trump denounces the Merck CEO.
That's White House Supremacy.

Matt Pearcee
whatever the president says,
he denounced the CEO of Merck
before he denounced neo-Nazis

Kaivan Shroff
Trump attacked Merck CEO Ken Frazier
within hours of him leaving manufacturing council.
It took him 4 days to condemn Nazis and the KKK.

Michael McFaul
Trump expressed more passion slamming Merck's
CEO than the KKK, Nazis & white supremacists.
Nothing patriotic or conservative in that.

Frederick Douglass
SpaceX CEO & Merck CEO both resigned
from an advisory council. Trump only attacked one.
I wish I could tell why just by looking at them. (sad face)
[FYI Frazier is black]

Jackie Speier
Odd how @POTUS doesn’t hesitate for a second to
attack CEO of #Merck, yet balks at calling out avowed
white supremacists for what they are.

Venezuelan lawmaker may have issued a Hit on Rubio

One of Venezuela’s most powerful leaders may have put out an order to kill Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, a fervent critic of the South American country’s government, according to intelligence obtained by the U.S. last month.

Though federal authorities couldn’t be sure at the time if the uncorroborated threat was real, they took it seriously enough that Rubio has been guarded by a security detail for several weeks in both Washington and Miami.

Believed to be behind the order: Diosdado Cabello, the influential former military chief and lawmaker from the ruling socialist party who has publicly feuded with Rubio.
