NEWS:

How To Recognize A Fake News Story. If you've been looking at Facebook lately, you may have seen that Pope Francis endorsed Donald Trump, a town in Texas was quarantined due to a deadly disease and Germany just approved child marriage. To be clear, none of these events really happened - but that didn't stop news of them from spreading like a virus. See more here.

Have Zombies Eaten Bloomberg's and Buttigieg's Brains?. Zombie ideas - ideas that should have been killed by evidence, but just keep lurching along. In the modern United States, most important zombie ideas are on the right, kept undead by big money from billionaires who have a financial interest in getting people to believe things that aren't true. More here.

Saudi Arabia Funneled Millions In Illegal Money To Trump's 2016 Campaign. A Lebanese-American businessman says that he personally helped the 2016 Trump for President campaign hide million of dollars in illegal campaign contributions from Saudi Arabia, all of which were a direct violation of federal law. More here.

Explosive New Book Lays Out A 'Direct Financial Connection' Between Trump And Russia. Dark Towers: Deutsche Bank, Donald Trump, and an Epic Trail of Destruction.. The reason Deutsche had been willing to take such risks on loans to Trump was that it wasn't actually taking the risks at all: (Russian bank) VTB had agreed to secure the loans; if Trump defaulted, Deutsche could collect whatever it was owed from the Russian bank. Article here.

U.S. intelligence officials told lawmakers last week that Russia is interfering in the 2020 election campaign by aiming to cast doubt on the integrity of the vote and boost President Donald Trump's re-election. The New York Times reported on Thursday that a day after the briefing, Trump rebuked acting Director of National Intelligence Joseph Maguire for allowing his staff to appear before the House Intelligence Committee.

Regular Democrats Just Aren't Worried About Bernie. Sanders is far more divisive among Democratic elites, who prize institutional loyalty and ideological moderation, than Democratic voters. The danger is that by projecting their own anxieties onto rank and file Democrats, party insiders are exaggerating the risk of a schism if Sanders wins the nomination, and overlooking the greater risk that the party could fracture if they engineer his defeat. At theatlantic.com.

Is Buttigieg the 2020 Version of Obama and Clinton? He is smart, articulate, a good campaigner, he came out of nowhere, and he has raised a lot of money from wealthy individuals and corporations, especially from Wall Street.

The hidden worst part of Donald Trump's unhinged impeachment victory speech. It was Trump on steroids. Trump unbound. Trump giving no, well, you know. But the worst part of it all had nothing to do with Trump. Instead, it was the audience who egged him on, laughed at his jokes and applauded his appalling lack of human decency. It felt like watching a bully beat up a helpless kid. Sure, the bully is to blame. But the crowd of people surrounding the beating and either cheering or doing nothing at all are far worse. The complicity of those in attendance -- the most powerful people within the Republican Party -- is what was truly astounding. At cnn.com.

"Because it was a courteous thing to do considering the alternative. It was such a dirty speech." -- Speaker Nancy Pelosi, when asked why she ripped up Trump's speech on national television.

Why would any Jewish organization invite Nikki Haley to speak? Nikki Haley served for two years in the Trump administration. She modeled silence and moral indifference. She said nothing about the Muslim ban, nothing about Trump's refusal to allow refugees and asylum-seekers to enter the United States, nothing about the cruelty Trump inflicted at our border. If a Jewish organization is afraid of alienating its donors by speaking out against Trump and his policies, shame on them. But to invite someone who stood silent and served Trump while Trump did to others what others have done to Jews is inexcusable. Linda
