Somebody ratted on Trump again.

Welp, they are drugging the refugee kids.

Lots of convo about it on Twitter, and esp. this lawsuit, filed a month or so ago, has details about overuse of medicines, some kids get 10 kinds a day. That is known as chemical straightjackets and is a widespread practice in various kinds of group homes, including nursing homes.
There are also details of casual brutality, sexual abuse, restraint torture, etc. Southwest Key is mentioned a few times.


Brian Kilmeade , this is to remind those under 50:

You said: ........."And these are not -- like it or not, these aren't our kids. Show them compassion, but it's not like he is doing this to the people of Idaho or Texas. These are people from another country..."

"no one leaves home unless....."

From the Kenyan-born Somali poet Warsan Shire:

no one leaves home unless
home is the mouth of a shark
you only run for the border
when you see the whole city running as well

your neighbors running faster than you
breath bloody in their throats
the boy you went to school with
who kissed you dizzy behind the old tin factory
is holding a gun bigger than his body
you only leave home
when home won’t let you stay.

no one leaves home unless home chases you
fire under feet
hot blood in your belly
it’s not something you ever thought of doing
until the blade burnt threats into
your neck
and even then you carried the anthem under
your breath
only tearing up your passport in an airport toilets
sobbing as each mouthful of paper
made it clear that you wouldn’t be going back.

you have to understand,
that no one puts their children in a boat
unless the water is safer than the land
no one burns their palms
under trains
beneath carriages
no one spends days and nights in the stomach of a truck
feeding on newspaper unless the miles travelled
means something more than journey.
no one crawls under fences
no one wants to be beaten

no one chooses refugee camps
or strip searches where your
body is left aching
or prison,
because prison is safer
than a city of fire
and one prison guard
in the night
is better than a truckload
of men who look like your father
no one could take it
no one could stomach it
no one skin would be tough enough

go home blacks
dirty immigrants
asylum seekers
sucking our country dry
niggers with their hands out
they smell strange
messed up their country and now they want
to mess ours up
how do the words
the dirty looks
roll off your backs
maybe because the blow is softer
than a limb torn off

or the words are more tender
than fourteen men between
your legs
or the insults are easier
to swallow
than rubble
than bone
than your child body
in pieces.
i want to go home,
but home is the mouth of a shark
home is the barrel of the gun
and no one would leave home
unless home chased you to the shore
unless home told you
to quicken your legs
leave your clothes behind
crawl through the desert
wade through the oceans
be hunger
forget pride
your survival is more important

no one leaves home until home is a sweaty voice in your ear
run away from me now
i dont know what i’ve become
but i know that anywhere
is safer than here

Canada just legalized marijuana nationwide.

sez Buzzfeed

Now he's going after naturalized citizens.

the Trump administration plans to deport the naturalized U.S. citizens it “believes” cheated the system of obtaining their citizenship.
The last sentence in this excerpt is a lie, btw.

The Trump administration is not only doing everything it can to discourage immigration of all sorts, it intends to launch an effort to identify naturalized American citizens it believes cheated the naturalization process and strip them of their American citizenship. The extraordinary process of denaturalizing an American citizen has occurred very rarely, with the Justice Department filing an estimated 300 civil denaturalization cases since 1990. U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services Director L. Francis Cissna, however, told the Associated Press that the agency is ramping up its efforts to identify citizens who, for instance, assumed new identities in order to avoid deportation and claim a green card or citizenship.

Cissna said his agency is hiring several dozen lawyers and immigration officers to review cases of suspected fraud. “We finally have a process in place to get to the bottom of all these bad cases and start denaturalizing people who should not have been naturalized in the first place,” Cissna said. “What we’re looking at, when you boil it all down, is potentially a few thousand cases.”


Sez here Trump is a terrorist.........

the unlawful use of force and violence against persons or property to intimidate or coerce a government, the civilian population, or any segment thereof, in furtherance of political or social objectives" (28 C.F.R. Section 0.85)

I am gob-smacked by this convicted thief's reaction to his sentence.

Scott Tucker was convicted of racketeering via a pa-day lender company he owned. Largest fine ever by the FEC, some say 2 billion, some say 1.3 billion.
Before he was sentenced to his 16 years in prison, this Jan., he, his wife, his mother, were interviewed for "Dirty Money",
A Netflix Series about the greed, corruption, and crime spreading through the global economy.

Arrested, tried, convicted, but he and his family all angry, they say THEY are the victims, it is the Government's fault for picking on him, for seizing all his very expensive toys, race cars, houses, etc. and for "murder" because his brother, who was part of the crime, committed suicide rather than prison.
Besides, other people are doing the same thing, Payday lending. So there!

Come to find out, he "spent a year in prison related to a bank fraud scheme" 1991-1992
