US Border Patrol agents used tear gas to disperse hundreds of Central American migrants in the Mexican city of Tijuana who made a rush for the border fence, as tension builds over the diminishing prospects for asylum seekers trying to enter the country.

Kavanaugh Is Sworn In After Close Confirmation Vote in Senate
Judge Brett M. Kavanaugh was confirmed to the Supreme Court on Saturday, October 6, by one of the slimmest margins in American history, locking in a solid conservative majority on the court and capping a rancorous battle that began as a debate over judicial ideology and concluded with a national reckoning over sexual misconduct.
CNN’s Brooke Baldwin says the scene at Drumpf’s rally during which he mocked Brett Kavanaugh accuser Dr. Christine Blasey Ford was “absent of soul.”
The little boy on the left of Drumpf, expressionless … on the same day the ‘so-called president’ said that young men should be scared in America.
~The Most Striking Thing About Trump’s Mockery of Christine Blasey Ford~
The president’s jokes at the expense of the woman who told her story of sexual assault are yet another reminder:
Laughter is a luxury. And, often, a weapon.
At a rally in Mississippi, Drumpf did what Drumpf is so often apt to do:
He dispensed with the former niceties. The Drumpf of last week had been, in public settings, generally respectful of Christine Blasey Ford, the woman who had come forward to allege that the Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh had sexually assaulted her when she was 15. The Drumpf of this week, however, reverted to the mode that is his most common and, it would seem, his most comfortable: mockery.
To me, the most naked, not surprising reaction was his supporters’ response!
She is coming back after her pregnancy, post a life-threatening complication after developing a pulmonary embolism, a controversy about her compression ‘catsuit’ (custom-made by Nike), her decision to wear a tutu and the high stakes of the event.
To add insult to injury, she was fined $17,000.
And then, Mark Knight, Australian cartoonist, decided to rub salt in the wound!
Parkland student Sarah Chadwick creates a fearless parody mocking the threatening NRA ad
~The NRA made its ad … now this Parkland student is returning the favor~
This past week, NRA’s spokesmodel Dana Loesch put out a threatening video ad against pretty much anyone who wasn’t supportive of the National Rifle Association – and Trumpism. In response, Parkland student Sarah Chadwick created a word-for-word parody of Loesh’s ad.
Chadwick is one of the survivors of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting that left 17 students and staff dead – gunned down and murdered by a student with an AR-15 automatic weapon of war.
In a thinly veiled threat packaged as an advertisement for her new show on NRA TV, NRA spokesperson Dana Loesch called out various groups the NRA regularly targets warning their “time is running out.”
Featuring foreboding music, black background and costume, and an hourglass, Loesch issued what can only be described as a vague threat to take action against what the embattled gun lobbying organization views as its ever-growing list of enemies.
To the Joy-Ann Reids, the Morning Joes, the Mikas.
To those who stain honest reporting with partisanship. To those who bring bias and propaganda to CNN, The Washington Post and The New York Time … your time is running out.
