There is no substitute for the powerful words of Katie Hill in her weekend article in the New York Times about surviving revenge porn. In taking on this cause, she’s showing that it can be done. She is also disempowering the very weapon used against her.
If you’re an immigrant, you have known blistering rhetoric and tweets for three years. You’ve lived with anti-immigrant policies that are so cruel and extreme that if anything in this world was made for a string of expletives, it’s the Miller-Trump anti-immigrant program.
I had my green card renewed this past Monday, without incident. The entire process took 15 minutes. That’s privilege at work. I’m a college-educated white woman and I was processed in Virginia by a staff who did more to promote the greatness of America during those fifteen minutes than the entire Trump administration has done during the 3 years of that nightmare presidency.
We continue on the journey of asking ourselves what kind of country we want to be, as impeachment hearings continue to build the strongest case imaginable against Donald Trump, and his administration continues to do horrible things to the extensive list of people it considers “other.”
As his weapon, Trump used the same creepy sexual domination he used to stalk Hillary Clinton during a televised debate to which he had invited women with whom her husband had had sexual relationships.
The Federalist Society's black tie attendees were blasted with Dr. Christine Blasey Ford's disturbing testimony about Justice Kavanaugh's sexual assault as they entered the annual gala at which Kavanaugh was the keynote speaker.

If you’re a child and an immigrant, this was the week you were told that your rights matter less than the rights of suspected terrorists at Gitmo.
On the plus side, the Senate unanimously passed a House bill making cruelty to animals a felony. This is a good thing.
Donald Trump spends more time pushing boundaries than attending to affairs of state. That ranges from sublime efforts to erase what passes for etiquette on social media to the more consequential, such as badgering the white men who almost exclusively comprise Trump’s GOP in Congress and the Cabinet. They cower shamelessly as their lord and master bellows new orders.
Trump's big beautiful wall has turned into a big beautiful failure as smugglers are sawing through it.
Trump claimed that the economy created 330,000 jobs in October when in reality it created 128,000 and unemployment increased.
Donald Trump showed us why whistleblowers need protection. He all but ordered a hit on the whistleblower who exposed his shakedown of the Ukraine and more when it became all too clear that his presidency is cooked.

After 46 Senate Republicans voted against $250 million in funding for election security in 2018, Senate Republicans have finally been shamed into making a vague gesture of care for US elections by agreeing to add just $250 million to the Financial Services and General Government (FSGG) Appropriations bill Thursday morning.
Children cannot give consent to so many things under the law.
Whether it’s when someone rapes children, when children get medical treatment, or when children escape violence, their stories are framed as if they can give consent. We see this with the Jeffrey Epstein case, with medical deferments of deportation, and with asylum cases. This article barely scratches the surface.
With one move, Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer tied Donald Trump's hands by giving him an offer he would be insane to turn down.
The FBI only interviewed nine of the ten witnesses they were allowed, and they didn’t bother with witnesses who confirmed other accusations against Kavanaugh. The FBI also didn’t use the entire week.
