Chicago 'Witches' Cast Hex Against President Near Trump Tower: Chicagoist. Fullscreen (Stacy Lee Gee / Facebook) The social medias are all atwitter today with calls for a mass spell-casting to bind Trump to those who do his bidding.
But our favorite social-activist coven was ahead of the curve again, as WITCH performed a ritual resistance action over the weekend to ward off the evil ways of the demon-in-chief. Trump hangs with golf club homies (AKA the special people) at Mar-a-Lago. President Donald Trump, living alone inside the White House, often hungers for friendly interaction as he adjusts to the difficult work of governance.
At his clubs, he finds what’s missing. That showed last November at a cocktail and dinner reception celebrating longtime members of his Bedminster, New Jersey golf club. Deep into the process of meeting potential Cabinet nominees, the president-elect invited partygoers to stop by the next day to join the excitement.

Protesters on Tuesday shut down a Minnesota House hearing on a bill that would hold demonstrators financially liable for police response costs, if their protests were deemed illegal or a nuisance in court.

Jury finds Scarsella guilty in Jamar Clark protest shooting. Updated 5 p.m. | Posted 4:29 p.m.
A jury on Wednesday found Allen Scarsella guilty on all charges tied to his shooting of five black men in north Minneapolis who had been protesting the police killing of Jamar Clark.

Leaked Draft of Trump’s Religious Freedom Order Reveals Sweeping Plans to Legalize Discrimination. A leaked copy of a draft executive order titled “Establishing a Government-Wide Initiative to Respect Religious Freedom,” obtained by The Investigative Fund and The Nation, reveals sweeping plans by the Trump administration to legalize discrimination.

Des Moines Public Schools issued a statement in support of immigrant and refugee students on its website in response to President Donald Trump's executive order that suspends citizens from seven predominantly Muslim countries from entering the United States.
Kevin Biggs, principal at Roosevelt High School, went a step further and read a heartfelt statement over the school's intercom. "To all of our students who are immigrants or refugees — and to their friends and classmates and teachers who are also concerned because of these recent events — know that you belong here," he said.
