Ted Cruz calls for criminal investigation into Twitter

Published

on

This Friday, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) sent a letter to the Justice and Treasury departments calling for a criminal investigation into Twitter regarding allegations it violated U.S. sanctions against Iran, Axios reports.

The move comes as the social media platform is already under fire from President Trump, who accused the company of being biased against conservatives. Cruz wants to look into whether the platform allowing Iranian leaders to maintain accounts on its service is a violation of U.S. sanctions.

“I believe that the primary goal of (the International Emergency Economic Powers Act) and sanctions law should be to change the behavior of designated individuals and regimes, not American companies,” Cruz wrote in his letter.”But when a company willfully and openly violates the law after receiving formal notice that it is unlawfully supporting designated individuals, the federal government should take action.”

Trump lashes out at reporter after being asked about threats to Black people from cops

Published

on

President Donald Trump lashed out at a CBS News reporter who asked why Black Americans are still being killed by law enforcement.

"So are white people. What a terrible question to ask," Trump replied to CBS's Catherine Herridge. "More White people, by the way. More White people."

A 2016 study showed that a disproportionate amount of people of color are killed by police, nearly three times more (2.8 percent) than Black Americans are killed by police than whites.

Trump is unraveling before our eyes — and the next four months could be particularly dangerous: Mental health experts

Published

on

Donald Trump on Friday commuted the sentence of his crony, Roger Stone.  As Mitt Romney tweeted, "Unprecedented historic corruption: an American president commutes the sentence of a person  convicted by a jury of lying to shield that very president."

So the president of the United States takes action to help his buddy, a convicted felon, but he cannot take decisive steps to combat the coronavirus pandemic and save lives. This is an act of corruption of the highest order. And this is an example of Donald Trump's mental disorder and a stark preview of his unraveling over the next four months leading up to the November election.

‘He’s a monster of our creating’: Republicans Against Trump founder says his PAC is about ‘atonement’

Published

on

In a moment of frankness, Republicans Against Trump founder Tim Miller revealed that his efforts to dethrone President Donald Trump are part of a kind of GOP "atonement."

Speaking to MSNBC's Nicolle Wallace Tuesday, Miller explained that they have over 400 videos from Republicans and former Republicans who've left the party saying that they're voting against Trump.

"What we're hearing from people is a couple of things," Miller continued. "He's the president this time and we have seen his actions, and I think that moment in Lafayette Square really congealed for a lot of these voters who maybe had doubts about him the last time but thought maybe he was a vessel and they had an awareness that he's not a vessel that they thought he was. Secondly, the opponent is different. We have this viral video from a guy in Massachusetts, talking about Hillary Clinton. Maybe it was unfair. Some of it was her fault, some of it was sexism. But the opponent is different this time. And a lot of these voters blocked out the possibility of voting against Trump because of the opponent and so, I think they're more open to hearing these messages if they come from people like them."
