Progressive politics, news & talk hosted by David Waldman

David Waldman brings us Wednesday’s message, broadcasting from the kitchen/nave of St. Kagro’s Cathedral, (somehow still under constant renovation).

Meanwhile, generous donations are pouring in for Notre Dame, and Louisianan black churches. Notre Dame’s fire seemed so destructive, probably because its designers preferred it burning rather than Paris burning. Luckily for everyone, a pioneering architectural historian managed to laser scan the Cathedral’s architecture. Notre Dame is now promised to be even more beautiful than before, but should that be the goal? Well, it is to the sponsors of the 2024 Olympics, where visitors will be able to check out the new Cathedral, just down the Seine from the new Arc de Trump.

Richard Spencer hopes the Notre Dame fire finally spurs the white man into action. Good luck on that!

Greg Dworkin counts down the hours before the release of William Barr’s second Mueller report obfuscation. Conservatives that are interested in the truth are interested in reading the actual report. If Congress wants the report enough, they can get it. Trump 2020 spends $1 in every $5 donated on lawyers.

Several people have said that several children have had sex with Alan Dershowitz; Alan is certain that no one saw him

Donald Trump purports that he vetoed the resolution to end US participation in Yemen’s Civil war. Congress.gov wants to see receipts. Gop congressmen pretended they watched Trump’s wall being built, when they didn’t. A pro-Brexit group pretended to see violent migrants sneak into Britain, when they didn’t.

Voters know who to blame for immigration policy.

Joan McCarter reports that top House Democrats are demanding White House documents on their plan to send asylum seekers to sanctuary cities. William Barr told immigration judges to deny bond hearings to asylum seekers.

Republicans love measles, but unfortunately can’t keep them to themselves.
