President Donald Trump was slammed on Friday evening for using “Gestapo tactics” to round up people for political purposes, a former top CIA official explained on MSNBC’s “The 11th Hour” with Brian Williams.

The host interviewed Jeremy Bash, who served as chief of staff for both the CIA and Pentagon about the administration’s stated plan to begin large-scale raids against immigrants.

By preannouncing it, the president not only endangered ICE officials, but tried to instill fear and scare to families to think they will be separated from their children or parents or loved,” Bash noted.

“This really has the hallmarks of the old Soviet knock at the doors, the Stalinist tactics, the Gestapo tactics of trying to round people up in the middle of the night,” he explained.

“This is not law enforcement. This is not operational. This is pure politics designed to instill fear and designed to make the president seem like he’s doing something on immigration — when he’s really not doing anything,” Bash concluded.

Will Trump peacefully vacate the Oval Office if he loses the presidential election in 2020? A lesson from 1800

Published

As primary season heats up in the United States, the Democrats are anxiously debating the best path to unseat Donald Trump in 2020. But the question of how to beat Trump is perhaps less urgent than the issue of whether he will accept defeat.

Trump has already questioned his loss of the 2016 popular vote with baseless accusations of voter fraud. He has also repeatedly toyed with the idea of extending his presidency beyond the eight-year limit enshrined in the U.S. Constitution, even trumpeting Jerry Falwell Jr.’s assertion that his first term be extended by two years to compensate for the Russia investigation. Perhaps most ominously, Trump’s former lawyer Michael Cohen warned while testifying before the House Oversight Committee in February 2019:

Something is killing galaxies — and science is on the case

In the most extreme regions of the universe, galaxies are being killed. Their star formation is being shut down and astronomers want to know why.

The first ever Canadian-led large project on one of the world’s leading telescopes is hoping to do just that. The new program, called the Virgo Environment Traced in Carbon Monoxide survey (VERTICO), is investigating, in brilliant detail, how galaxies are killed by their environment.

As VERTICO’s principal investigator, I lead a team of 30 experts that are using the Atacama Large Millimeter Array (ALMA) to map the molecular hydrogen gas, the fuel from which new stars are made, at high resolution across 51 galaxies in our nearest galaxy cluster, called the Virgo Cluster.
