    Underplayed from Trump-Duterte call: he told Duterte we have 2 nuclear submarines near N. Korea. That's…not usually something we talk about.

    His super smart supporters are saying that he was probably given permission to disclose the info. They also "think" that the transcript of the call is fake.

    Why are they wearing all black, and those hideous head pieces?
    Trump always says "It's a great honor...". Up next he'll probably say he "respects their country", and the Pope "is a good guy". He's so stupid.

    Vatican protocol. Women are supposed to wear black with sleeves and veil. Sometimes some woman will--GASP--wear some other colour, and the news reports will react with horror. I forget who it was who wore some colour, but I gathered that we were supposed to be aghast.

    Democrats Just Flipped ANOTHER Republican District. Trump Won This One By 23%

    Early last night, progressives were ecstatic after Democrat Edith DesMarais flipped a New Hampshire State legislative seat that Donald Trump won by seven percent. Turns out, Democrats were just getting started. In the special election to fill a Long Island seat on New York’s State Legislature, progressive Democrat Christine Pellegrino handily defeated her conservative Republican opponent, Thomas Gargiulo, 58-42%.
    Just six months ago, Trump won the district by 27% and a Republican won the same seat by 37% — an astounding 53-point swing.


    The district’s about-face is far from a stand alone victory.
    Democrats need 24 pick-ups to take back the House of Representatives next year and have the opportunity to get a head-start with two huge special congressional elections coming up in Montana (this Thursday) and Georgia (June 20). In both races, polls show the Democrat with a strong chance to flip a U.S. House seat considered solidly Republican only a few months ago.
    (Click on their names to support the promising Democratic candidates, Jon Ossoff and Rob Quist.)
    All four special elections reflect a national rejection of today’s Republican Party and portend a national Democratic wave with the potential to take back Congress and replace today’s obsequious Republican enablers with true public servants who will hold this government accountable to the American people.


    Much work lies ahead to fix our broken government. But the active resistance and new leaders — DesMarais, Gargiulo, Quist, Ossoff, and others — have Democrats exactly where we need to be to win going forward.

    Trump budget would allow sale of wild horses for slaughter

    The Associated Press

    President Donald Trump's budget proposal calls for saving $10 million next year by selling wild horses captured throughout the West without the current requirement that buyers guarantee the animals won't be resold for slaughter.
    Wild horse advocates say the change would gut nearly a half-century of protection for wild horses — an icon of the American West — and could send thousands of free-roaming mustangs to foreign slaughterhouses for processing as food.
    They say the Trump administration is kowtowing to livestock interests who don't want the region's estimated 59,000 mustangs competing for precious forage across more than 40,000 square miles (103,600 sq. kilometers) of rangeland in 10 states managed by the U.S. Bureau of Land Management.

    The budget proposal marks the latest skirmish in the decades-old controversy pitting ranchers and rural communities against groups that want to protect the horses from Colorado to California.
    "This is simply a way to placate a very well-funded and vocal livestock lobby," Laura Leigh, president of the nonprofit protection group Wild Horse Education, said about the budget proposal.
    The National Cattlemen's Beef Association and other interests have been urging BLM for years to allow sales of wild horses for slaughter to free up room in overcrowded government corrals for the capture of more animals.
    Doug Busselman, executive vice president of the Nevada Farm Bureau, blamed the stalemate on the "emotional and anti-management interests who have built their business models on preventing rational and responsible actions while enhancing their fundraising through misinformation."

    Presidents George W. Bush, Bill Clinton and Barack Obama also grappled with the spiraling costs of managing the nearly 60,000 horses on the range and another 45,000 currently kept in U.S. holding pens and contracted private pastures.
    Over the past eight years, BLM's wild horse budget has more than doubled — from $36.2 million in 2008 to $80.4 million in 2017.
    Trump's budget anticipates the $10 million savings would come through a reduction in the cost of containing and feeding the animals. The savings also would include cutbacks involving roundups and contraception programs.
    The 1971 Free-Roaming Wild Horse and Burro Act permits the sale of older, unadoptable animals. But for years, Congress has approved budget language specifically outlawing the sale of any wild horses for slaughter.
    Horse slaughterhouses are prohibited in the U.S. but legal in many other countries, including Canada, Mexico and parts of Europe where horse meat is considered a delicacy.
    Then-BLM Director Neil Kornze said a year ago that the horses represented a $1 billion budget problem for his agency because it costs $50 million to round up and house every 10,000 horses over their lifetime.
    Still, he said the agency had no intention of reversing the long-standing policy.

    However, the Trump administration wants a change, saying through the BLM that the "current program is unsustainable and a new approach is needed, particularly when overall federal funding is so constrained."
    It says the budget would allow the agency to manage the wild horse program in a more cost-effective manner, "including the ability to conduct sales without limitation."
    BLM rounded up more than 7,000 horses in 2012, but only about 3,000 in each of the past two years due primarily to budget constraints.
    As of March, BLM estimated that more than half of the horses roaming the range were in Nevada (34,780). An additional 13,191 burros were on the range— about half in Arizona.
    The BLM asserts that U.S. rangeland can sustain fewer than 27,000 horses and burros.

    "The original intent of the act was to make sure those animals had a healthy presence on the range, but also that they be kept at a number that is sustainable," said Ethan Lane, executive director of the National Cattlemen's public lands council. "You have horses starving to death ... and irreversible damage to western rangelands."
    The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals said Trump's budget proposal was shocking.
    "Wild horses can and should be humanely managed on-range using simple fertility control, yet the BLM would rather make these innocent animals pay for draconian budget cuts with their very lives," ASPCA President Matt Bershadker said.
    Suzanne Roy, executive director of the American Wild Horse Campaign, said the plan could put the horses on the brink of extinction.
    "America can't be great if these national symbols of freedom are destroyed," she said.

    Trump "shoving" aside a NATO leader to get to the front of the group. There are several clips of the other leaders snickering behind their hands as Trump lectures them about paying their fair share of NATO costs.
