The Same Democrats Who Denounce Donald Trump as a Lawless, Treasonous Authoritarian Just Voted to Give Him Vast Warrantless Spying Powers

One would hope, and expect, that those who genuinely view Trump as a menace of this magnitude and view themselves as #Resistance fighters would do everything within their ability to impose as many limits and safeguards as possible on the powers he is able to wield. If “resistance” means anything, at a minimum it should entail a refusal to trust a dangerous authoritarian to wield vast power with little checks or oversight.

Yesterday in Washington, congressional Democrats were presented with a critical opportunity to do exactly that. A proposed new amendment was scheduled to be voted on in the House of Representatives that would have imposed meaningful limits and new safeguards on Trump’s ability to exercise one of the most dangerous, invasive, and historically abused presidential powers: spying on the communications of American citizens without warrants. Yesterday’s amendment was designed to limit the powers first enacted during the Bush years to legalize the Bush/Cheney domestic warrantless eavesdropping program. The Intercept’s Alex Emmons on Wednesday detailed the history and substance of the various bills pending in the House.


Joining the pro-surveillance coalition led by Trump, Paul Ryan, Devin Nunes, Schiff, and Swalwell was the House’s liberal icon and senior Democrat, Nancy Pelosi. The San Francisco Democrat also stood on the House floor and offered a vigorous defense of the Trump-endorsed bill that would extend to Trump’s FBI the power to spy on Americans without warrants, in the process denouncing the minimal warrant safeguards favored by many in her own party. Pelosi’s speech earned praise from GOP House Speaker Paul Ryan: “I want to thank for coming up and speaking against the Amash amendment, and in favor of the underlying bipartisan .”

The Differences Between Bribery And Lobbying - Investopedia


Corruption is seen as endemic and at the heart of the systemic failure in some countries.
Bribery is considered illegal, while lobbying is not. Bribery is considered a sale of power.
However, lobbying is considered an influence of political power by offering contributions that affect political outcomes.

Discovered our boys had a male and female hamster. Now we have 16 babies we need to go to their forever homes. They were born May 15th and are 7 weeks old. They move entirely to quickly to get a picture of each individual one. If you are interested, it is pick up only and you MUST be set up for it to go home. They make great first time pets for kiddos to teach them the responsibility of pet ownership.

{#Lol}  They used only 83 subjects, and since when were "introverted" and "less agreeable" synonymous?

Apparently that spelling is acceptable in technical psychology usage.
