A President of the People or a Pres. of His People
WASHINGTON — In the last couple of weeks, President Trump repeatedly called his enemies “treasonous.” He threatened to punish Democrats by dumping migrants in their districts. He promoted a video tying a Muslim congresswoman to images of the Sept. 11 terrorist attack on the World Trade Center.https://www.nytimes.com/2019/04/16/us/politics/trump-presidency-base.html?smid=fb-nytimes&smtyp=cur&fbclid=IwAR3brNL4xxzcLpsLE4e4I8wz81Y3eFO-ghYGSoJL6hoyWojTx6oTL28n9A0

Barbaric to the core:Brunei brings in gay sex law
Brunei is enacting strict new Islamic laws that make gay sex and adultery punishable by stoning to death, despite fierce global condemnation. The tiny, Muslim-majority kingdom in 2014 became the first East Asian country to introduce Sharia law at a national level. The government introduced the legislation and associated penalties in stages, with the new measures set to begin Wednesday, April 3. Under stages two and three of the penal code, sex between two men and adultery both carry a punishment of stoning to death, while sex between two women is punishable with 100 lashes. The law also introduces harsh penalties such as amputation of limbs for stealing, and imprisonment for dressing as someone of a different gender.https://edition.cnn.com/2019/04/03/asia/brunei-stoning-law-intl/index.html?utm_content=2019-04-03T08%3A01%3A02&utm_medium=social&utm_source=fbCNN&utm_term=link&fbclid=IwAR39FDyjW7q6JyPX5EalqnsH4KnLJIcweS_D8SvuRbdOrQ9tUT1oGHMWpwA

AZ Lawmaker Pushes Porn Tax to Pay for Trump' Wall
An Arizona legislator has proposed a way to fund a border wall: Charge internet users a tax for viewing pornography. Earlier this month, Arizona Republican state senator Gail Griffin proposed HB 2444. The legislation would require manufacturers and distributors of internet-connected devices to block people in the state from viewing adult content — unless those users pay a $20 tax. Revenue from the so-called porn tax would go toward building a border wall between Mexico and the Grand Canyon State, according to the text of the bill.https://www.cnbc.com/2019/01/31/arizona-legislator-proposes-tax-on-adult-videos-to-pay-for-border-wall.html?__source=facebook%7Cmain&fbclid=IwAR3vIZcnl_dwhgAjuCf9LDS8dC1yT_ywPdzjT59s0eC6BoiruzVYkD7pdQo
