I, too, sing America.

I am the darker brother.
They send me to eat in the kitchen
When company comes,
But I laugh,
And eat well,
And grow strong.

I'll be at the table
When company comes.
Nobody'll dare
Say to me,
"Eat in the kitchen,"

They'll see how beautiful I am
And be ashamed—

I, too, am America.


- Langston Hughes, 1902-1967

It's as bad - or worse - than our darkest fears.

Excerpts from the article:
“Fear,” a forthcoming book by Bob Woodward... paints a harrowing portrait of the Trump presidency, based on in-depth interviews with administration officials and other principals.
A central theme of the book is the stealthy machinations used by those in Trump’s inner sanctum to try to control his impulses and prevent disasters, both for the president personally and for the nation he was elected to lead.
Woodward describes “an administrative coup d’etat” and a “nervous breakdown” of the executive branch, with senior aides conspiring to pluck official papers from the president’s desk so he couldn’t see or sign them.

We all know tender-aged children were ripped away from parents with NO warning and NO assurance of whether or when they'll see them again.

The cruelty is obvious, but some may not realize reuniting them is a real medical and psychological Emergency. 1/
I am a psychologist specializing in trauma. The damage *already* done to little ones - older children too - will have long-lasting and severe consequences.

This harm will take years to heal. Even then, most of these children will *never* be the same. 2/
A good friend's story may shed some light on all this. Although not a refugee, at age 2 1/2 he had the terrifying experience of sudden separation from his parents. They were injured in a car accident, and he was unhurt physically, so he was taken away in a separate ambulance. 3/

Stop asking whether the Nashville Waffle House shooting was terrorism or mental illness.

This is a false dichotomy. It was BOTH.

The shooter self-identified as a "Sovereign Citizen." His mental illness made him more vulnerable to stochastic terrorism. 1/
Stochastic terrorism has been defined as "using language and other forms of communication to incite random acts of violence that are 'statistically predictable but individually unpredictable.'" 2/
The "sovereign citizen" movement is a violent extremist movement with white supremacist and anti-government
Clearly, their toxic propaganda radicalized this mentally ill man. 3/

Hey, #TheResistance. I know #Sessions is awful.
But right now he's recused from Russia investigation; he can't fire #Mueller.
Let's not call for his removal. If he steps down or is fired, Dump gets to hand-pick his replacement. They may well fire Mueller.
This is not about what #Sessions deserves.
This is about being strategic.
