Weekend link dump for May 7

Six questions on Ivanka Trump’s new investment fund.

“Former national security adviser Michael Flynn was warned by the Defense Intelligence Agency in 2014 against accepting foreign payments as he entered retirement, according to new documents obtained by the House oversight committee.” Shoulda listened.

“Don’t let those failures lull you into a false sense of security. Trump has already sledgehammered the basic trust between Americans and their government in ways that will take years to repair.”

Jeb! and the Jeets have a chance to turn the Marlins into something resembling a normal baseball team.

Wake me up when someone creates a Dothraki to Klingon dictionary.

More things Donald Trump doesn’t know.

“Trump said he alone could fix Washington. At the moment, there’s a real case that he alone is breaking it.”

“In sum, Gorka’s Ph.D is about as legitimate as if he had been awarded it by Trump University.”

The FyreFest debacle was the most entertaining story from last weekend.

Part of the problem with FyreFest was the exorbitantly-priced and monopolistic music festival racket itself.

“In other words, if we take Trump’s comments on their own terms he’s completely wrong. Jackson thought the issue couldn’t be more important and he was ready to go to war and crush the nullifiers.”

Wake up, sheeple! Or don’t. I’m fine either way.

“The problem? Ivanka’s advocacy is often all style and no substance, and she has repeatedly revealed fundamental misunderstandings about the actual barriers facing many women and gender non-conforming people who don’t benefit from the privileges afforded to men.”

“This mammoth tax cut could be worth $1.5 billion to Trump’s wealthy Cabinet”.

“”It seems to be among the most bizarre recent 24 hours in American presidential history. It was all just surreal disarray and a confused mental state from the president.”

“As legislators and the executive branch renew their efforts to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act this week, they might want to keep in mind a little-known financial consequence of the ACA: Since its adoption, far fewer Americans have taken the extreme step of filing for personal bankruptcy.”

How long is too long for a television show?”

ESPN should have fired Curt Schilling a long time ago. Never hiring him in the first place would have been even wiser.

And to this day, Curt Schilling continues to be a class-A jackhole.

What the Rev. William Barber says.

Don’t steal stop signs. Seriously.

“Why would Republican lawmakers do all this? So that they can massively cut taxes on the rich, of course. TrumpCare is in no meaningful sense a health-care reform bill. It is a bill to cut the taxes of the top 2 percent, paid for by taking health insurance away from poor and working-class people.”

“Meanwhile, the House’s next priority after Obamacare repeal and the tax cut will not be the roads and bridges that Trump promised his voters, but amendments to the Dodd-Frank financial regulation bill to allow big banks to engage in riskier transactions.”
