How does this make you feel? Special counsel Robert Mueller filed a barrage of new criminal charges on Thursday against two of President Trump's former campaign aides, accusing them of lying to banks to obtain millions of dollars in loans. Former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort and his associate Rick Gates already faced charges over their work for a pro-Russian political faction in Ukraine. In a new indictment revealed on Thursday, prosecutors also charged the men with tax fraud, bank fraud and failing to report overseas bank accounts, which they used to hide millions of dollars in income from U.S. authorities while paying for expensive cars and homes.

For those who say that armed resource officers is the solution consider this: The armed school resource officer assigned to protect students at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School took a defensive position outside the school and did not enter the building while the shooter was killing students and teachers inside with an AR-15 assault-style rifle, Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel said Thursday. Israel suspended School Resource Deputy Scot Peterson on Thursday after seeing a video from the Parkland, Fla. school that showed Peterson outside the school building where the shooter was inside and attacking. “What I saw was a deputy arrive at the west side of Building 12, take up a position, and never went in,” Israel said.

The topic also got heavy promotion among Twitter accounts that some researchers have linked to Russia's online influence campaigns. Twitter's move came just days after the federal indictments of 13 Russians connected with a St. Petersburg-based "troll farm" heightened the pressure on social media companies to clamp down on the plague of fake accounts that marred the 2016 presidential election.

How does this make you feel? A rally held on Feb. 17, days after a deadly school shooting in Parkland, Fla., drew a crowd of thousands and prompted impassioned pleas for gun control. The rally was held in Fort Lauderdale, about 25 miles from Parkland’s Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, where 17 people died in Wednesday’s shooting. Emma Gonzalez, a student at the high school, directly addressed President Trump and other lawmakers in her speech: "If the president wants to come up to me and tell me to my face that it was a terrible tragedy and how it should never have happened and maintain telling us how nothing is going to be done about it, I’m going to happily ask him how much money he received from the National Rifle Association," Gonzalez said.

Have you taken action yet? TEXT ACT to 64433 A high school senior who survived the mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla., on Feb. 14 called on lawmakers to take concrete action against gun violence. David Hogg, 17, labeled the massacre an "atrocity" during an on-camera interview with CNN. "Please take action. Ideas are great, ideas are wonderful and they help you get re-elected and everything, but what’s more important is actual action,” Hogg said, when asked if he had a message for Congress. "We’re children; you guys are the adults," he added. "You need to take some action and play a role. Work together, get over your politics and get something done." Hogg recalled hearing gunshots ring out during an Advanced Placement environmental science class, saying the students told their teacher, who shut the door. But after a fire alarm went off, the class immediately began evacuating—straight into the path of alleged gunman Nikolas Cruz. Hogg credits a janitor with saving at least 40 students' lives by instructing them to go in a different direction, calling her actions "heroic."

How does this make you feel? The White House has been lying for the past week about former White House Staff Secretary Rob Porter’s security clearance status, FBI Director Christopher Wray confirmed in Senate testimony on Tuesday. Porter resigned last week amid the publication of allegations that he committed domestic assault against both of his ex-wives. Those reports included a photo of Porter’s first wife, Colbie Holderness, with a black eye that she said was the result of an assault by Porter. Porter was still operating on an interim security clearance more than one year into his job. It was reported last week that an FBI background check had turned up the domestic assault accusations. The White House has consistently said that the FBI security clearance process was “ongoing,” implying that the FBI had not concluded its report on Porter.

How does this make you feel? The budget would eliminate subsidized loans. Some 5.7 million students had subsidized loans in the 2016-2017 academic year, according to Mark Kantrowitz, a student loan expert. The budget plan also would narrow the number of income-driven repayment plans — in which people pay back their loans at a rate that takes into consideration their income — from four to just one. Under that option, students' monthly payments would be capped at 12.5 percent. Students generally pay 10 percent of their discretionary income under current income-based repayment plans. However, undergraduate students would have their loans forgiven after 15 years, compared with 20 years now. So they'd be paying more per month, but less overall. Graduate students, meanwhile, would not have their loans forgiven for 30 years.

@Reg@anned from @unitedstatesofconscious - How does this make you feel? Forty Senators have signed on to co-sponsor a bill introduced in December by Sen. Ed Markey, D-Massachusetts, to disapprove the Federal Communications Commission's (FCC) rules ending net neutrality protections. Because the bill has surpassed its threshold of 30 sponsors, Markey can force the Senate to vote on his bill under the Congressional Review Act (CRA). This act gives Congress the ability to overturn new federal regulations with a joint resolution passed with a simple majority in both the Senate and the House, and the president would also have to sign the bill.

How does this make you feel? In a unanimous decision, the panel said that if the General Assembly fails to enact a new map by Jan. 24, a special master will be appointed to draw the districts. If the decision stands, it would be the second time the state was forced to redraw its congressional map this decade. The last redraw was in 2016, after a previous version was ruled unconstitutional for illegally using race to draw two seats. But in this new decision, the panel ruled that the remedial map violated the equal protection clause when GOP legislative leaders drew the maps with an explicit conservative bias in an effort to favor Republican candidates. "Rather than seeking to advance any democratic or constitutional interest, the state legislator responsible for drawing the 2016 Plan said he drew the map to advantage Republican candidates because he 'think[s] electing Republicans is better than electing Democrats,'" Circuit Court Judge James Wynn wrote in the ruling.

How does this make you feel? During his campaign, Trump said over and over again that he would stick it to the wealthy by closing the egregious carried interest loophole. Guess what? His disgraceful tax bill did nothing to address it and even Fox Business commentators are fed up with his broken promises. #kochbrothers #corporations #billionaire #taxbill #paulryan #mitchmcconnell #greed #regulations #paradisepapers #taxes #conservative #money #senate #impeachment #lies #corruption #res#resistance #resist #ethics #morals #unitedstatesofconscious #knowledgeispower #congress #trump #donaldtrump #republican #democrat #independent #berniesanders #history

How does this make you feel? For the third year in a row, police nationwide shot and killed nearly 1,000 people, a grim annual tally that has persisted despite widespread public scrutiny of officers’ use of fatal force. Police fatally shot 987 people last year, or two dozen more than they killed in 2016, according to an ongoing Washington Post database project that tracks the fatal shootings. Since 2015, The Post has logged the details of 2,945 shooting deaths, culled from local news coverage, public records and social-media reports.

Are you going to read it? Donald Trump is reportedly "furious" about Michael Wolff's forthcoming behind-the-scenes book on the Trump presidency, and now the president is making his tantrum official. On Thursday, Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House author Michael Wolff and book publisher Henry Holt & Co. received a cease and desist letter from a lawyer representing President Trump, according to the Washington Post. The letter ordered the publisher to stop publication of the book, including excerpts and summaries in the press, like Wednesday's widely read and quoted "Donald Trump Didn't Want to be President," published in New York Magazine.

How does this make you feel? The Trump administration rolled back a handful of environmental regulations in the last few days of 2017, and it’s carrying that momentum into the new year. On Thursday, Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke announced the administration planned to allow oil companies to drill in the Arctic, Atlantic, and Pacific oceans, including in waters that have been protected from drilling for decades.
