It’s Sunday. Usually not a news day. Not a “breaking news” day. That’s not how the cycle works now. With Trump occupying our White House, EVERY DAY is a breaking news day. These are the tweets that Magnana Mouse contributed to telling the day’s stories.
First, outgoing Republican losers, in lame duck sessions, neutered the responsibilities of the offices they lost. Confused? The Guardian laid it out in a piece that explains the unconstitutional and destined to fail it is.
Russia is on a roll. They invaded and occupy a sovereign nation. They are controlling shipping lanes in the Arctic that were once ice. They installed a President of the United Sates of America entirely beholden to them. They are ramping up their aggressive hostility both in their region and now, ours. There are a lot of stories you really need to brief yourselves on. We all need to have detailed understanding of this escalating world crisis.
This NBC News video tells of the most recent escalation. Russia is flying bombers that deliver nuclear payload around the Caribbean.
Finally, the last story we should all be paying close attention to concerns your health. Your health and the fact that Republicans are still doing everything they can to obliterate our ability to be assured it. We all knew that Republicans campaigning in the midterms were lying when they cried out: “I will fight to protect your protection from being denied care because of pre-existing conditions.” Republicans sued to have the ACA declared unconstitutional.
Would you be surprised to hear that the Republicans who promised they would fight to protect the rights of those with pre-existing conditions were lying liars? Not only were they lying to the vulnerable, they were actually signatories to the lawsuit.
Oh, it gets better. The lawsuit landed on the desk of a Texas federal Judge. Guess what Texas Federal judge ruled?
Bye bye Obamacare and protection for those with pre-existing conditions?
