I didn't think I'd ever leave the CIA. But because of Trump, I quit. - The Washington Post - 1 views

    "That changed when I formally resigned last week. Despite working proudly for Republican and Democratic presidents, I reluctantly concluded that I cannot in good faith serve this administration as an intelligence professional."

Trump may have been unclear, but Sweden experiencing a migrant crime wave - 3 views

  •  
    Police investigator Peter Springare isn't likely to be among those mocking President Trump for his remarks about refugees in Sweden. Trump's comments during a Florida campaign rally on Saturday - which some took as a misstatement about a supposed terror attack - dovetail with what Springare has been seeing during a typical week in Orebro, Sweden.
  •  
    Trump has been famous for saying offensive things, but a chunk of the occupants are migrants.

DC preps for 'Day Without an Immigrant,' but Hill takes little notice - CNNPolitics.com - 2 views

  •  
    "Immigrants and supporters are planning to strike Thursday in a protest loosely organized by social media and word of mouth. The goal is to demonstrate the importance of immigrants to society, as the Trump administration continues to pursue hard-line enforcement policies that advocates fear will disrupt communities and the economy."
  •  
    I think is was a very cool way of being able to show just how important immigrants are to this country. This is the types of protests that really make a different in a very peaceful way I don't see why anyone would be mad about this-- other than them not getting tacos.

Donald Trump is doing exactly what he said he would do - 12 views

    Donald Trump is doing what he promised, but is that a good thing?

    With Mexico refusing to pay for the wall, I don't think the wall will even go up. So we should worry less about walls and more about the important things.
  •  
    I agree with Makenzie, don't worry about the wall but worry about what's important
  •  
    If he does what he always said in a way that benefits each of the citizens we work and live in a good way always striving for what we have is a good idea but if it is to harm people and thus humiliate them I am not made a good idea
  •  
    I agree with McKenzie, even though the wall has been a topic for a few months now... people are realizing this is getting close to happening... I don't blame Mexico for not wanting to help pay for the wall. It's probably not even gonna happen anyways. Trump needs to work on making people happy and "making America great again".
  •  
    It seems like Trump is trying to get to much accomplished at one time, he's not focusing on one problem, so nothing is going to get done. My problem with the wall is that it doesn't solve the problem people will always find a way in so unless we are putting a wall up around the whole US we will still deal with people trying to get in.
  •  
    Even though trump said he's going to build a wall people are still going to get over it. Unless he is planning on putting a wall all around. I think he's just gonna make it worst for us, he should do the little things first and work his way up with the big things, because what is he changes his mind about what he's doing.
  •  
    I agree with kim, he is doing everything so fast hes not really focusing or thinging about anything as long as it gets done.
  •  
    Donald has been doing everything he said he was going to but i dont think he is seeing what he is doing because he is doing everything so fast. i also dont think he will put the wall up because mexico wont pay. people are going to find a way around the wall too
  •  
    He is a man of his word, the word most people voted for, so that means he is going to do what he says and listen to the people.
  •  
    I agree with Justice because people are just going to find another way over or around the wall. Illegals are still going to jump the border and some of them will still make it into the United States. I don't understand why he is trying to do everything so fast. He does know that he has four years right? Maybe someone should inform him of that. The wall is a pointless thing especially if he's trying to get Mexico to pay for it.
  •  
    the wall is not a pointless thing. He will get mexico to pay for it. He is a man that keeps to his word. He is not bought and paid for by lobbyist, and super PACS. The wall is a great idea. Just remember would you want to take in some homeless person into your house? thats what a front door is for. that is why we need a wall.

Iraq starts operation to drive ISIS out of west Mosul - 2 views

shared by xolson974 on 20 Feb 17 - No Cached
  •  
    The operation comes weeks after Iraqi forces recaptured eastern Mosul across the Tigris River. On the first day of the new offensive, Iraqi Federal Police forces said they killed 79 ISIS militants, destroyed weapons facilities and regained control of 10 villages.
  •  
    Pushing ISIS troops out of west Mosul is a good idea, taking areas from them will help stopping them overall.

DeVos hangs in balance before tight Senate vote - 2 views

    This woman said she would condone guns in a Wyoming school to protect students from bears. Is this the woman we want to make decisions for our schools?
  •  
    Betsy DeVos does not belong running public schools. She has never taught in one and she has never went to one. The most she has done is mentor in one. She sends her children to private schools. She is the wrong person for the job. Who would condone school children to have guns to "Protect them from Bears."

Shia LaBeouf Arrested After Allegedly Attacking 25-Year-Old During Anti-Trump Protest - 20 views

  •  
    Shia LaBeouf was arrested in New York early Thursday during a protest against President Donald Trump after he allegedly attacked a 25-year-old man - and video of the entire incident was posted online. The 30-year-old actor was taken into custody around 12:30 a.m.

  •  
    Not only did Shia have the courage to do this, but he kept going which was his mistake, and all outside the museum with his art in it. This could lead to multiple up riots, maybe even more violence. But Shia got off about scott free.
  •  
    If you don't know the background of Shia, you wouldn't understand why he went off like that. First off, the man he was yelling at was a neo nazi. He had said 1488 which is a reference to Hitler and the holocaust. Shia is Jewish, his name literally means praise god in Hebrew. Shia may have gone too far if it were just a common mistake, but when your ancestors have been killed in WW2, you're not going to be happy. He shouldn't have been arrested, the white supremacist should've for representing hate.
  •  
    I agree with Deven the man was just picking a fight and he got exactly what he wanted, nothing against Shia.
  •  
    I think it was wrong for that person to say that to Shia LaBeouf, that guy just want to see how mad he would get, most did it on purpose.
  •  
    I think that the guy got what he deserved. Maybe Shia shouldn't be so aggressive towards opposing sides of politics, like supporters, protesters, ect, but you can't fix or control somebody else's behavior and beliefs. So, since the man was pushing Shia's rage on and on, Shia snapped, and I believe the man got what he deserved.
  •  
    Everyone has there opinions and beliefs obviously and everyone is not going to get along, when you act out and hurt people for expressing there opinions you cant expect to not get punished. Especially when your around lots of people, you can't expect to not do or say anything.
  •  
    Shia could've used less violence but in a way I don't blame him because the man was saying things that were really bad and offended shia.
  •  
    I agree with Deven and Sydney. The man was representing hate and picking a fight. Shia wasn't all innocent but I don't blame him for his actions
  •  
    This is an example of growing tension between groups. nation seems divided by pro and anti trump people. the fact that people are speaking their mind is a positive, the fact that our president is causing so much negative uproar so early into his term is a negative.
  •  
    him using violence only builds support towards the opposite cause.
  •  
    The young man was representing hate and picking a fight. Shia wasn't innocent but I don't blame him for what he did.
  •  
    I agree with Jake, this fight shows the nation being further separated between pro-trump people and anti-trump people.
  •  
    I agree with Lauren that the man was picking a fight and I also don't blame Shia for his actions either.
  •  
    I don't think it was right for Shia to do what he did but I don't blame him and I see why he did what he did.
  •  
    I think this is kind of stupid, Shia should have had the self control not to get into that type of interaction especially because he's a well known person it kind of puts a shadow over him in some ways
  •  
    Shia should of had some self control, but I see why he did it and don't blame him as well.
  •  
    I agree with Deven. The Neo Nazi was just trying to pick a fight because he knew Shia's background. I understand why Shia did what he did but maybe he does deserve some type of consequence for his actions. Even though the man was trying to pick a fight Shia could've easily just been the bigger person and should've had the self control to walk away.

California and President Trump are going to war with each other - 15 views

  •  
    President Trump had harsh words for one of his most fervent opponents during the pre-Super Bowl interview with Fox News's Bill O'Reilly that aired Sunday. Not President Vladimir Putin, mind you, whose alleged unpleasant habit of murdering journalists met with a shrug from the president. No, Trump lashed out at the nation's largest state, California.

    First he says that he is opposed to sanctuary cities, saying it breeds crime and goes on to say that "we have to well defend, we give tremendous amounts of money to California". But then when asked if that was his "weapon of choice" trump says, " I don't want to defend the state...If they're going to have sanctuary cities, we may have to do that." First he says this and then he says that, what IS his opinion here? Plus when he says that sanctuary cities breeds crime, but the FBI gives proof to show that it doesn't. Why can't he check his facts before he says something?
  •  
    So Trump wants to pull money from California's school, which is ridiculous it will make the US dumber than it already is, we have lost our rank in education. This war doesn't even make logical sense, taking money will never solve the problem. It will cause more.
  •  
    I think Trump sounds ignorant when he says that they breed more crime. Every city has crime and theres always going to be people that commit crimes no matter what
  •  
    Trump is stubborn, because of everything he wants to change on his terms states will start to rebel. He needs to learn to negotiate with others wants or the whole country will rebel and then it will be out of control.
  •  
    There shouldn't be a war at all, i don't really see the point of why he is going to take California's money. Maybe he should cut down some of our military money. Take money from something that is a lot more wide ranged than California.
