WATCH: Protesters Brilliantly Heckle ‘Villain’ Stephen Miller In His Own Backyard

 

It seems that there will be no peace for Trump Administration officials until they stop supporting and orchestrating cruel and inhumane policies. Of course, by now, we have all heard of of how Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Neilson was heckled and shamed out of a Mexican restaurant, and how the owner of Red Hen in Lexington, Virginia asked Sarah Huckabee Sanders to leave. However, they have taken the heckling of Immigration Policy Adviser Stephen Miller to a whole new level.

At Miller’s own home, fliers were handed out to his neighbors that branded him a kidnapper and rightfully called him a racist. Here is an image of the fliers that were handed out to Miller’s neighbors at City Center DC:

Also, the protesters marched around the apartment complex chanting:

“Say it loud, say it clear: immigrants are welcome here.”

They also marched through the complex chanting:

Stephen Miller, you’re a villain, locking up immigrant children.” Here is that video:

Now, people can run around talking about how uncivil these public shaming are all they want, but what about the incivility of jailing immigrant children, and separating families, all for political gain? The Trump Administration is not normal, and therefore we cannot treat them as if they are normal or should be normalized. In a normal presidency, regardless of party, I would not encourage the heckling of public officials and political opponents. However, this is not normal democracy. This is blatant flouting of the rule of law, explicit racism and cruelty, and authoritarianism on full display. If Congress won’t do anything to draw attention to what is happening here, then by god, we will.

SCOTUS nominee Brett Kavanaugh said he would ‘put the nail’ in independent counsel ruling

In a 2016 video, Judge Kavanaugh argued that he would overturn Morrison v. Olson, a Supreme Court ruling that underpins the appointment of independent counsels. The ruling largely fell out of favor after Ken Starr’s turn in the Clinton era. As FiveThirtyEight’s Nate Silver points out, however, Kavanaugh volunteered the example by himself, revealing something about his views on Supreme Court precedent.

Sarah Sanders: We’re working on “bold reforms” to stop Russian election interference

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said the Trump administration is working on “bold reforms” to ensure Russian interference in US elections never happens again.

Sanders was asked if Trump sees Russian meddling in the 2016 election as “an attack on democracy.”

The President has faced continued furor over his remarks about election meddling made alongside Russian President Vladimir Putin on Monday in Helsinki.

Here’s what Sanders said today:

The President thinks that we have to focus on securing our election integrity and our election systems, which is why he has spent so much time with his administration making sure that this doesn’t happen again. Let’s not forget this didn’t happen under President Trump’s watch. This happened under the Obama administration. We’re taking steps, we’re making bold reforms to try to fix this and make sure it never happens again.

Here’s what the White House says Trump and Putin talked about in their private meeting

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders listed a number of topics that were included in President Trump’s private one-on-one meeting with his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin.

Sanders listed Syrian humanitarian aid, Israeli security, North Korea, denuclearization, Ukraine and the occupation of Crimea, reducing Russian and US nuclear arsenals, and “your favorite topic” Russian interference in elections.

Sanders said the meeting reflected the “beginning of the dialogue with Russia and our administration and theirs and we’re going to continue working through those things.”

Sanders also said Putin’s proposal of having Russian prosecutors question US officials, including former US ambassador to Russia Mike McFaul, arose in Trump’s meeting, but she said no agreements were reached.

“He said it was an interesting idea. He didn’t commit to anything,” Sanders said. “We’ve committed to nothing.”
