75 years after D Day

Border Patrol is confiscating migrant kids' medicine, U.S. doctors say
For the past year and a half, Dr. Eric Russell has been traveling from Houston to McAllen, Texas, every three months or so to volunteer at the Catholic Charities Humanitarian Respite Center, a first stop for many asylum-seeking migrants who’ve been released by U.S. Customs and Border Protection in the Rio Grande Valley.
During his most recent visit to the clinic in April, when he saw more than 150 migrants, he noted a troubling new trend: a number of people reported that their medication had been taken from them by U.S. border officials.

The World Is A Safer Place Without Saddam Trump

Donald Trump came down harder on Bette Midler for tweeting than he did on Saudi crown prince Mohammad bin Salman for literally killing Jamal Khashoggi. - Andrea Junker tweet

Today I do not think of politicians, or even generals. I think of the men on those beaches and the millions back home who knew their names as brothers, sons, fathers, friends and loved ones carrying the fervent hopes of  freedom into the hell of battle. - Dan Rather

Apparently, Trump's "Get Tough" Policy At The Border Isn't Working
U.S. border officers apprehended more than 132,000 people crossing from Mexico in May, an increase over the previous month and the highest monthly level since 2006, reaching what U.S. officials said on Wednesday were "crisis" levels.

Wonder what would happen if Mexico decided to put a tariff on all American products until the US did something about illegal drug usage among American citizens, a problem that directly causes massive crime and violence in Mexico. - Stonekettle tweet

When I look at this picture I see desperate people with little more than the clothes on their backs fleeing from horrible conditions mostly caused by the USA's thirst for drugs. My heart breaks for these people because when they reach our border their families will be separated, medication confiscated and who knows what the hell else happens in there. We've fallen a long way from D Day.

I'm Praying Pelosi Is Using The Old Bait & Switch Strategy
During a back and forth with Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler (D-NY) Tuesday night, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) pushed back against his request to start an impeachment inquiry, exclaiming: “I don’t want to see him impeached, I want to see him in prison.”
According to Politico, Pelosi meant that she wanted Trump defeated in 2020, then prosecuted for his many alleged crimes.
