Let's go straight to Russia and the GOP. First: "RNC paid intel firm for Clinton dirt." So what, right? Well, they lied about it, a lot, and the firm lied about it, but now they're not, and the intelligence firm has ties to Russia and employs ex-KGB. So it's AND WE'RE OFF!
As for the investigation: "Nunes is asked if he got the info he briefed the White House on from the White House. He doesn't dismiss it." Because he says he can't comment. Except when he does. To Mr. Trump. And the press. Sometimes. Which leads into "Former counsel for the House intel committee explains just how screwed up Nunes' actions were today," by which I mean he is genuinely boggled. "Birth of the Biggest Lie" talks about Trump's attempts to claim He's The Real Victim Here. "FBI’s Russian-influence probe includes a look at Breitbart, InfoWars news sites" - to suggest that there isn't an international, co-linked movement to build ultra-rightist governments is nonsense; you can go watch it talk to itself on places like /pol/. It's right there, just like the attempt by the American fundamentalists to internationalise their anti-LGBT movement. But the question is how much money is involved where, of course.
Meanwhile, "Gunman in Ukraine kills Putin foe in attack denounced as ‘state terrorism’."
In other lies, "Read President Trump's Interview With TIME on Truth and Falsehoods," which prompted this quick response, "Donald Trump said 14 false things in an interview about how he says false things."
HEALTH CARE! What a clusterfuck. They're literally to a place where "Fewer Americans Would Be Insured With G.O.P. Plan Than With Simple Repeal." See also: "CBO releases new score for ObamaCare repeal bill" Spoilers: much less deficit reduction; no additional coverage. That's how badly they've screwed this up. "Late G.O.P. Proposal Could Mean Plans That Cover Aromatherapy but Not Chemotherapy" is pretty hilarious, by which I mean sad. "The AHCA Would Force New Moms on Medicaid to Find Work 60 Days After Labor" is sad, by which I mean just mean. "Trump pledged not to cut Medicaid. Is he keeping that promise?" HAHAHAHAHAHA no.
And, of course, he's going all-in: "Trump delivers ultimatum to House Republicans: Pass health-care measure on Friday or he’ll move on." The approval rate for their replacement is 17% and falling, and the last two times the Feds tried to change how health care worked, the ruling party took it in the shorts. Is this some kind of loyalty test? We'll see.
"The Life and Death Issue Ignored at Judge Gorsuch’s Confirmation Hearings" speaks for itself.
In corruption: "Mr. Trump Goes After Consumer Financial Protection Bureau" - he wants to fire the head and presumably not replace. Or replace, eventually. Or replace, by somebody who won't do anything. And today, "US Senate votes to let internet providers share your web browsing history without permission," which literally no one wants except the ISPs selling the data.
In cultural warfare news, "Rick Perry challenges election of Texas A&M’s first gay student body president, says it was ‘stolen’ in ‘name of diversity’". Sure. Cabinet members should be spending their time talking about student elections. That's important! But it is where FAGS are involved, I guess. Meanwhile, in Oklahoma? "Oklahoma Republican Says God Can Use Rape And Incest To 'Bring Beauty From Ashes'." Isn't that nice. I hope he's crushed by his own truck.
Good luck out there. This isn't even their final form.
