Pause to consider the absurdity and outrageousness of our nation's situation, which boils down to the referent of "its," in the following sentence from the Washington Post: "The unfolding drama has focused attention on an uncomfortable topic for the White House: its possible connections to Russia and that country’s president, Vladimir Putin."

Jerry Garcia's Legendary "Wolf" Guitar Being Auctioned to Benefit Southern Poverty Law Center - Glide Magazine
"From San Fran’s Winterland Ballroom to NYC’s Palladium to Egypt’s Great Pyramids, Jerry and Wolf travelled, appearing in front of massive, passionate audiences. It is no wonder that the devoted Deadhead who purchased the Wolf in 2002 has said, 'I’ve been a fan of The Dead since I was a kid, and playing this iconic guitar over the past 15 years has been a privilege. But the time is right for Wolf to do some good. My wife and I have long supported the efforts of the Southern Poverty Law Center, and if ever we needed the SPLC, we sure do need them now.'"

White House rattled by McCarthy's spoof of Spicer - POLITICO
Can Melissa McCarthy play Steve Bannon next on SNL? "More than being lampooned as a press secretary who makes up facts, it was Spicer’s portrayal by a woman that was most problematic in the president’s eyes, according to sources close to him. And the unflattering send-up by a female comedian was not considered helpful for Spicer’s longevity in the grueling, high-profile job in which he has struggled to strike the right balance between representing an administration that considers the media the "opposition party," and developing a functional relationship with the press."

"What this also means is that the draft EOs like the anti-LGBT "religious liberty" order which have been circulating have not necessarily been pulled back on the merits. They've just been "paused." We'll have to see if having more input from the cabinet will make a difference. "Trump has never run any large organization. He's not very bright and he's got psychological problems. So, he had no idea that he needed to hear from experts other than his little handpicked cadre of weirdos. That he now knows this isn't going to help things. He is, in George W. Bush's famous words, "the decider." But he doesn't have the capacity to weigh the facts independently and he doesn't really trust anyone but his family, none of whom know anything either. So, the decision making will continue to be Trump running the world by the seat of his pants which he believes has been shown to be infallible because he's now the president."

Exciting The Right Wing, Trump Downplays Threat Of Right-Wing Terror
"Simultaneously obsessed with pushing that idea that Islamic terrorists are pouring across America’s borders, while insisting domestic, far-right extremists pose no real danger, the right-wing media regularly attack the government for its interest (until now) in tracking homegrown terrorists of all ideologies.... "Today, with the threat of homegrown, radical-right extremists still looming, the Trump administration is doing the opposite and following the Fox News lead. Rather than increasing scrutiny, it’s proposing to scale it back."

Department of Justice Memo: Lawfulness of a Lethal Operation Directed Against a U.S. Citizen who is a Senior Operational Leader of Al Qa’ida or An Associated Force
NBC News published this Department of Justice confidential white paper on February 5, 2013, which outlines the legal framework that would allow the U.S. government to "use lethal force in a foreign country" against a U.S. citizen highly involved with al-Qaeda or its associates. A bipartisan group of U.S. senators requested all classified documents related to the legality of targeted killings of Americans be released.

I plan on marching for science in Washington. Here's why
"I’m in my first year of graduate school, and in a few months, when I pick the lab where I do my dissertation, the expert we need to do any number of things may be from Iran. Or Libya. Or any of the other seven countries targeted in the president’s order. The president’s order could keep them from coming into the country. If they’re already here, the president’s order could make it hard for them to return home, whether to collaborate with colleagues there or to visit an elderly parent. "So what will happen to science in the US? I worry all the scientists will leave. Why would I, or any other scientist, want to stay in a country where we cannot attract the best and brightest to our labs?"

LAPD chief: My officers won’t comply with Trump’s immigration ban | TheHill
“We couldn’t deport 500,000 people if we wanted to, and if we did, it would be at the expense of public safety,” Beck said. Beck said he believes a better way to weaken immigration would be to strengthen Mexico’s economy. “We have a very rich country with a lot of opportunity that is immediately adjacent to a poorer country with less opportunity,” Beck said. Additionally, Beck said he believes instilling a fear in undocumented immigrations over deportation would make them less willing to work with police officers on criminal investigations. Beck said he would be willing to risk losing millions of dollars in federal funding if the Trump administration chooses to punish cities unwilling to comply with his executive orders. “I’d risk losing my beliefs,” by complying, Beck said. “There’s not a price for me to do this differently.”

Judges put temporary stop to Trump immigration order - The Boston Globe
"In Boston, lawyers, mostly women, rushed to federal court around 10 p.m., some still in fancy dresses from parties and galas or a Saturday night on the town. Lawyer Sue Finegan left gala to come to the court. Susan Cohen ditched a 60th birthday party. And Laura Rotolo of the ACLU left her husband and two children to clean up at after her 6-year-old’s birthday party. Doyle carried a copy of the Immigration and Nationality Act under her arm, and lawyer Melissa Smith handed out Girl Scout cookies — Thin Mints — for sustenance. “We all raced over to help,” Finegan said. Court officers also were called in from home, including one who had been eating chocolate ice cream and watching the news before he got the call. And federal prosecutor Ray Farquhar, acting chief of the civil division, put down his wine glass at an engagement party and rushed into court."
