Re: “Are the Russians coming again in 2020? Don't tell Donald Trump

After reading the Mueller report, I was shocked at the extent of the Russian attempt. The media has not really covered this well. I've heard a lot about the social media attack, but little has been reported about all of the other activity. If we don't secure are election system this democracy will fail.

Re: “The tax day open line

So they are preparing a 140 page response to a report they haven't seen? Right? Guess we know what Barr has been doing for the last month. He has been pulling a Devin Nunes. Got to protect the boss.

Re: “Trump's sanctuary city plan recalls the 'Reverse Freedom Rides'

I personally know a few undocumented immigrants that have over stayed their visas. They pay federal and state income tax. They also pay social security which they will never be able to use.

"The nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office indicates that between 50 percent and 75 percent of unauthorized immigrants pay federal, state, and local taxes. Illegal immigrants are estimated to pay in about $7 billion per year into Social Security."

Re: “Tom Cotton holds 'town' hall: Your particular town might not be included

Remember when all the tea partiers were disrupting all the town hall meetings. I guess the democrats should of just ejected them. They were very "disruptive individuals".

Re: “Barr promises release of redacted Mueller report in mid-April

I'd hate for it to be leaked and then screw up some future prosecution, but I'd really like to see it. It's obvious with all the lying from everyone, they are trying to cover something up. I didn't know anything about Trump until he ran for office, but I don't think he's smart enough to pull something off on his own. There is still many investigations going on. Mueller's grand jury is still "continuing robustly" say's federal prosecutors in court. So maybe they couldn't get direct evidence on Trump, but it sounds like they found something. Maybe a family member?

Re: “Islamaphobia in Arkansas

"When some claim that this country was based on the Christian religion"

Treaty of Tripoli was ratified by the United States Senate unanimously without debate on June 7, 1797 with the signature of President John Adams. The entire treaty was read aloud on the Senate floor, and copies were printed for every Senator. Even though it was superseding by the Treaty of Peace and Amity, nobody in congress objected to Treaty of Tripoli. This is only 10 years after the signing of the constitution. The Founding Fathers made clear that their primary concern was religious freedom, not the advancement of a state religion. NOBODY VOTED AGAINST IT.

Article 11 in the Treaty of Tripoli say's:

As the Government of the United States of America is not, in any sense, founded on the Christian religion; as it has in itself no character of enmity against the laws, religion, or tranquility, of Mussulmen (Muslims); and as the said States never entered into any war or act of hostility against any Mahometan (Mohammedan) nation, it is declared by the parties that no pretext arising from religious opinions shall ever produce an interruption of the harmony existing between the two countries.

Re: “Wednesday: Headlines and the open line

Hmmm... Mueller's job is done, but the grand jury "It's continuing robustly".
Hopefully more to come?
