U.S. to Collect Social Media Data on All Immigrants Entering Country - The New York Times
Ridiculous. "The department published the new requirement in the Federal Register last week, saying it would collect “social media handles, aliases, associated identifiable information and search results,” which would be included in an applicant’s immigration file. It said the data would come from “publicly available information obtained from the internet, public records, public institutions, interviewees, commercial data providers.”"

NBC News on Twitter: "Trump on pardoning Arpaio during Harvey: "I assumed the ratings would be far higher than they would be normally." https://t.co/4tMNoDKN4E"
He pardoned Arpaio during a hurricane because he "assumed the ratings would be far higher than they would be normally" since everyone was watching storm coverage. The man is unhinged.

Trump’s ‘God whisperer’ says resisting him is an affront to God – ThinkProgress
Cool cool. FYI, resisting Trump = fighting against God's plan = fighting against God. "In other words, he is authentically — whether people like it or not — has been raised up by God. Because God says that He raises up and places all people in places of authority. It is God who raises up a king. It is God that sets one down. When you fight against the plan of God, you are fighting against the hand of God."

Our eclipse has long been a marker of a distant American future
Fascinating look at how people looked to 2017 during past eclipses "The eclipse is an exceptional thing happening to endlessly predictable objects that govern our lives, the sun and the moon. It’s a reminder that exceptional things can happen on Earth, too, not all of them good. It’s a reminder that, sure, the sweep of time is incomprehensible, but that, at least for our little stretch of it, we’ve managed to survive. Here’s hoping people in the future will, too."

The Eclipse Conspiracy - The Atlantic
"You’d think there would be a balanced look at even considering the idea that the eclipse isn’t going to happen. It’s like no one is even thinking to question this. Where are their voices? Why does Google give so few results that say the eclipse is fake? I would start by looking at Mark Zuckerberg and Charles “Chuck” Schumer. I am not saying the eclipse isn’t going to happen. I’m just saying there are two sides to every story."

It is time to stop using the term ‘alt right’ - Columbia Journalism Review
CJR comes out against "alt right" label. "Until we get real answers, it’s time to stop calling the president’s favored political zealots by their favored self-identifying term. Journalists can’t allow agents of hatred to set how they are defined. Their rebrand is little more than a cover-up for white supremacists to continue to commit foul acts of disrespect, intimidation, and violence."

Russian Officials Overheard Discussing Trump Associates Before Campaign Began - WSJ
Is it 2017? Is it a weekday afternoon? It's exciting news time! "U.S. intelligence agencies starting in the spring of 2015 detected conversations in which Russian government officials discussed associates of Donald Trump, several months before he declared his candidacy for president, according to current and former U.S. officials. In some cases, the Russians in the overheard conversations talked about meetings held outside the U.S. involving Russian government officials and Trump business associates or advisers, these people said."

Russian Dirt on Clinton? ‘I Love It,’ Donald Trump Jr. Said - The New York Times
waaaaaaaaat IF IT'S WHAT YOU SAY I LOVE IT --- "The documents “would incriminate Hillary and her dealings with Russia and would be very useful to your father,” read the email, written by a trusted intermediary, who added, “This is obviously very high level and sensitive information but is part of Russia and its government’s support for Mr. Trump.” If the future president’s elder son was surprised or disturbed by the provenance of the promised material — or the notion that it was part of an ongoing effort by the Russian government to aid his father’s campaign — he gave no indication. He replied within minutes: “If it’s what you say I love it especially later in the summer.”"

A Time Magazine with Trump on the cover hangs in his golf clubs. It’s fake. - The Washington Post
He literally makes his own fake news! This makes me so happy :) "This cover — dated March 1, 2009 — looks like an impressive memento from Trump’s pre-presidential career. To club members eating lunch, or golfers waiting for a pro-shop purchase, it seemed to be a signal that Trump had always been a man who mattered. Even when he was just a reality-TV star, Trump was the kind of star who got a cover story in Time. But that wasn’t true. The Time cover is a fake. There was no March 1, 2009, issue of Time Magazine. And there was no issue at all in 2009 that had Trump on the cover."
