Feinstein: American People Deserve Opportunity to Read Glenn Simpson, Fusion GPS Transcript. The Nationalist's Delusion. When you look at Trump’s strength among white Americans of all income categories, but his weakness among Americans struggling with poverty, the story of Trump looks less like a story of working-class revolt than a story of white backlash.
And the stories of struggling white Trump supporters look less like the whole truth than a convenient narrative—one that obscures the racist nature of that backlash, instead casting it as a rebellion against an unfeeling establishment that somehow includes working-class and poor people who happen not to be white. The nature of racism in America means that when the rich exploit everyone else, there is always an easier and more vulnerable target to punish.

Twitter propaganda during 'Unite the Right' As more and more people take to Twitter to keep up on fast-developing events, it’s more important than ever important to understand how their platform facilitates the spread of misinformation, disinformation, and hate, as well as up-to-the-minute accounts of fact.
While news and live video content was indeed shared widely and rapidly on Twitter during this weekend’s #unitetheright rally, high-volume accounts highjacked the trending hashtags to push a pro-white-nationalist agenda and share disparaging disinformation about antifa, Black Lives Matter, other activists, and the mainstream media, with the intent (and effect) of flooding out the good information with propaganda.

Democratic Congressman Eric Swalwell has launched a website to document the personal, social and business connections between the Russian government and members of the Trump administration — and the threats of such links to U.S. interests.
In an interview Thursday, the East Bay congressman called it a “living, breathing guide to what is happening” and noted that the site is evolving along with the story.

The website cites reporting by the New York Times that Trump’s campaign had contact with Russian intelligence officials before the election. Mnuchin: Trump will not cut social security and Medicare 'entitlements' Donald Trump’s first budget proposal will spare big social welfare programs such as social security and Medicare from cuts, the treasury secretary, Steven Mnuchin, said in an interview broadcast on Sunday.
Mnuchin said Trump would use his first address to Congress on Tuesday night to preview some elements of his sweeping plans to cut taxes for the middle class, simplify the tax system and make American companies more globally competitive with lower rates and changes to encourage manufacturing. Speaking on Fox News’ Sunday Morning Futures, Mnuchin, who has acknowledged that tax reform is his top policy priority, said the budget plan would not seek cuts to federal benefits programs known as “entitlements”. The GOP unveils a 'permanent save' for Social Security — with massive benefit cuts. Amid all the hand-wringing over Republican plans to eviscerate Medicare and Medicaid and repeal the Affordable Care Act, it shouldn’t be overlooked that the GOP has the knives out for Social Security too.
The latest reminder comes from Rep. Sam Johnson, R-Tex., chairman of the Ways and Means Social Security subcommittee. Johnson on Thursday uncorked what he termed a “plan to permanently save Social Security.” Followers of GOP habits won’t be surprised to learn that it achieves this goal entirely through benefit cuts, without a dime of new revenues such as higher payroll taxes on the wealthy. In fact, Johnson’s plan reduces the resources coming into the program by eliminating a key tax --another way that he absolves richer Americans of paying their fair share, while increasing the burdens of retirement for almost everyone else.
