Wednesday Open Thread | There Is No Deal To Be Made…Stay Strong, Madam Speaker | 3CHICSPOLITICO

There is no BOTH SIDES to this Government Shutdown. There simply isn’t. Dolt45 and The Turtle are responsible for the Government Shutdown. Period. The Democrats have watched and have had their last nerve snapped. They are done. They are not going to negotiate with terrorists. It was Dolt45 who damaged DACA. It was Dolt45 who damages TPS. The Supreme Court has already given a pass to hearing the case on DACA, which means that those under DACA’s protections don’t have to worry about it for another year. So, exactly what was Dolt45 going to negotiate with, considering that the Supreme Court has already made its decision. Give into them now, and they’ll be back to the well when the debt ceiling comes up. And, then, it ‘ll be something else. NO.NEGOTIATING.WITH.TERRORISTS.

House floor erupts after {GOP} lawmaker shouts ‘Go back to Puerto Rico’

The House floor erupted Thursday after Congress adjourned for the week when an unidentified Republican congressman yelled a controversial and potentially racially charged remark across the aisle as Democratic Rep. Tony Cárdenas was at the podium. “Go back to Puerto Rico!” the lawmaker shouted, punctuating a stream of Republican whooping and hollering at the Democratic majority for holding a voice vote — instead of the normal roll call vote — to…

Boris Johnson wrongly denies stirring Turkey fears in Brexit campaign | Politics | The Guardian – He is a liar!

A week before referendum day in June 2016, Johnson and Michael Gove wrote a joint letter to David Cameron claiming that the government supported the idea of Turkish membership of the EU. “The public will draw the reasonable conclusion that the only way to avoid having common borders with Turkey is to vote leave and take back control on 23 June,” the letter stated. And during the BBC’s EU referendum debate, two days before the poll, Johnson said: “It’s government policy to accelerate Turkish accession.” A couple of weeks earlier, interviewed on the Andrew Marr Show, he said: “Frankly, I don’t mind whether Turkey joins the EU, provided the UK leaves the EU.”

ICE Withholding Double-Amputee’s Prosthetic Arm as He Awaits Deportation – No limit to ICE inhumanity!

“When he was tied up in the back of a transport vehicle, his prosthetic arm was damaged, and it was taken from him,” Perez said. “To this day, it has not yet been returned.” After his prosthetic leg was taken by ICE agents for repair, Valladares Diaz was given a crutch designed for use by elderly, two-legged people. Despite making numerous complaints, his leg was not returned to him for more than five months, and he was forced to use a wheelchair. In the meantime, he was written up for disciplinary violations after not being able to stand during head count. “When he didn’t get up to stand in line for counts, an officer wrote a complaint about him, even though he could be seen there lying in his bed, because he doesn’t have access to his leg,” Perez said. “He actually got a disciplinary complaint for not standing up in line for count!”

Steve King Still Has Backing in Iowa, but Even Supporters Say ‘He’s Done’ – The New York Times

Mike McCarville, a former Fort Dodge mayor, said that when it came to the many Latinos who work in meatpacking, construction and agriculture in the region, native-born Iowans could be “two-faced.’’ “All the farmers will bitch about all the Hispanics,” he said, “but they hire them and we can’t get along without them.” “If they accomplished what they say they want and just round them all up and ship them back, our economy would grind to a halt,” he added.

Migrant caravans are making their way to the US border — but the journey is far from easy – ABC News (Australian Broadcasting Corporation)

We spent three days with that boy. His name is Daniel and he’s one of perhaps 10,000 people from Central America who’ve arrived at the US border since November. He can’t go home because the gangsters would likely murder him. And he can’t cross the border because Donald Trump calls asylum seekers invaders. But this child is still glad he’s escaped what used to be his home.

Bremen police release video of attack on AfD lawmaker Frank Magnitz | News | DW | 11.01.2019

Magnitz said he was attacked from behind by three men with a piece of wood around 5:30 p.m. on Monday. He said the attackers continued to kick him once he had fallen down, before he blacked out. The police video, however, shows one man hitting Magnitz from behind with his elbows after which two other people run past Magnitz. Prosecutors cast doubt on the version of events put forth by AfD politicians when they said video footage of the attack appeared to show that while the politician was attacked, most of his injuries were sustained when he hit the ground.
