Trump digs in on immigration amid family separation crisis June 18, 2018 at 5:48 p.m.

Every fascist state has it's own euphemisms to make their horror sound less horrific. Lie after lie, excuse after excuse, cruel rationale after cruel rationale. Anyone with a working conscience is ashamed of what our country is doing right now. Those cheering this madness on have sold their soul to the devil and deserve to live in hell for supporting this evil.
Lessons from 80-90 years ago from Germany show that this kind of behavior by the government and those following a demagogue leader leads to disaster and human misery.
The real criminals are those supporting this program and those working in it. One day they need to be brought to justice for their wrongdoing.
Lock them up!!!! Crooked Donald needs to be first in line to be put away. One month per each and every rotten lie he's told since being in office ought to be fair enough.

BRADLEY R. GITZ: The conservative evolution June 18, 2018 at 9:26 a.m.

LRAC has no facts or research his to back his statements (same with Gitz). Too bad he doesn't work as much as he wastes his time posting here. That speaks volumes about his legal abilities. These trolls, like LittleRockAnonymousCoward, are neither brave or free if they have to hide in the dark.

And yet some academically failing charter schools still are here. There's a notable one in Little Rock that keeps getting a free pass from State Board of Education despite nearly a decade of failure. The most common reason for shutting down charters is that they are not fiscally sound.
I wonder if the gentle, but blindered editor would care to comment on the study of 750 charter schools which showed that they encourage segregation in the local community and still are predominant white enclaves for higher income families.
Here's link to report:

Fair & balanced?? Neither charter schools or this editorial fit that definition.

Hundreds of children wait in Border Patrol facility in Texas June 17, 2018 at 9:24 p.m.

I think Jesus would rather deal with the Devil than put up with the hate that burns within mozoid's breast.
The kids are in cages and moz thinks this is just grand and dandy stuff. What a creep!!

JB - feel the love, man. Your feckless foes, the noxious naysaying nabobs of nothingness, are just putrid pimples on the public posterior. This explains the noxious nature of their natterings.
Keep after these commie-lovin', Putin-worshippin', Trump toadies. Tough love and tougher words.

JOSH ROGIN: Human rights come first June 16, 2018 at 3:46 p.m.

“We must remain sober about who Kim Jong Un is: a brutal dictator who has killed his family, overseen campaigns of mass murder and starvation, and masterfully manipulated his rivals on the global stage,” Rep. Eliot Engel of New York, the ranking Democrat on the House Foreign Affairs Committee.
--
From Politico:
Kim’s totalitarian regime may be the world’s cruelest, with practices reminiscent of the Nazis and the Soviet Union under Josef Stalin. The government, run by Kim’s father and grandfather before him, is believed to keep as many as 100,000 people — quite possibly more — in gulags and other detention sites, many in slave-like conditions. Defectors describe a terror state with zero tolerance for dissent, in which entire families are often punished for the actions of one member.

Human Rights Watch on USA:

Overview
The leaders of the United States of America are proud to present the picture of being the foremost bearers of human rights.

Yet, they have often been heavily criticized for advancing their own interests and of double standards.
They often have not ratified various international human rights related treaties (and where it has, there have been many, many reservations).
US diplomats were influential in drawing up the 1948 Universal Declaration of Human Rights, yet the USA has not always put (some of their own) words into action.
**
FACT: In April 2018, the United States singled out China, Russia, Iran and North Korea for human rights abuses, labeling their governments "forces of instability" in the government's annual human rights report.
In reply to this report, Amnesty International said: "From the beginning, this administration has sent the message that the United States will no longer prioritize efforts to hold the global community to account for human rights," said Joanne Lin, the national director of advocacy and governmental relations at Amnesty International USA. "Reports of the omission of key passages pertaining to sexual and reproductive rights, women's rights and the rights of marginalized populations, combined with the administration's deference to known human rights violators like the governments of Saudi Arabia and Turkey, make us skeptical that these reports present a full picture of human rights around the world."

Thoughtful commentary, 23cal. Snarky replies from our conservative commentators. Conscience and humanity are still ideals worth striving for. Those who say otherwise are probably lacking in those qualities.
It's sad what people will say and do when they sell their soul to an ideologue/demagogue. Such wrongdoing comes forth in their deeds and words.

Trump and his henchmen do not care about human rights in America so why should you expect him to raise the issue elsewhere?

ANNABELLE IMBER TUCK: Vote 'no' on 1 June 15, 2018 at 5:32 p.m.

Thanks to Tuck for shedding more light on a blatant power grab by the legislature and the lobbyists who have them in their backpockets. Ethics in the legislative branch is fast becoming an endangered species and you know how Republicans are about endangered species.
