Who should we kill?

A meditation on #MargaretSanger's mal mot, "The most merciful thing that the large family does to one of its infant members is to kill it."

[From M. Sanger, Women and the New Race (1920).]
Oddly, I grew up thinking that mercy granted life, extended life, ameliorated pain or difficulty, removed unjustly imposed restrictions on liberty.

You know what I mean. You've granted mercies to others.

They arrived late after you labored to prepare a meal.
They failed to take care and caused damage to property, knocking over a lamp or running into your rear bumper.

Thousands of small acts of thoughtlessness or lack of self-awareness intrude on our peace, our contentment.

Obama #pardoned three Iranians charged with sanctions violations as US authorities moved to drop charges or commute prison sentences for 5 other men, part of a stunning & secretly negotiated deal that saw four Americans freed by Iran.

[1/19/16] President Obama granted clemency to Iranian-Americans in exchange for the release of Americans held captive in Iran Saturday — but their releases have some unprecedented strings attached.

🔥KUSH🔥

After Jared Kushner submitted his SF86 national security clearance form FOUR times and was DENIED clearance, Trump ordered his then-chief of staff to grant Kush top-secret security clearance.🤬

It is a #felony to LIE or omit details on an SF86‼️
nytimes.com/2019/02/28/us/…
Kushner’s first SF86 disclosed *zero* contacts with foreigners, which Kush claimed was a “clerical error.”🤥

Even after updating his SF86 *3 additional times*, Kush still couldn’t get clearance. Then again, we don’t give security clearance to #traitors.😉
Perhaps Kush’s and Misha🇷🇺Flynn’s attempts to arrange a secret backchannel with #Russia🇷🇺was one of the MANY reasons Kush was DENIED clearance.😉

Plus the fact that he committed FELONIES in his repeated attempts to cover up his shady business deals.🙄

What would an Agent of Influence POTUS look like?

Top 21 behaviors: (No. 21 sold me!)

Since inauguration:

1. Hamburg State dinner 2017- ignored Allies/sat in corner w/Putin & translator for over hour. Allies/Aides were uncomfortable/unnerved. #AgentPOTUS
2. Directs treasury to reduce Russian oligarch sanctions, AND THEN Mnuchin refused to answer Congress questions re:”Why?” #AgentPOTUS
3. New norm: WH-Putin phone calls, no read-outs/ no notification. RU state media publishes that the calls occurred days later. Our press unaware until Russia publishes calls happened. Russia reports discussion’s subjects.(We freaked at first occurrence, remember?) #AgentPOTUS
