A drive to derail special counsel Robert Mueller’s probe into the Trump campaign was taken up by a powerful federal appeals court Thursday as a three-judge panel heard arguments that the special prosecutor’s appointment last year was legally flawed and unconstitutional. The judges heard an appeal from a former aide to Trump adviser Roger Stone, Andrew Miller, who resisted a grand jury subpoena in order to create a legal vehicle to challenge Mueller’s authority to continue his year-and-a-half long probe into alleged collusion between the Trump political operation and Russia during the 2016 presidential race.Story Continued Below The arguments Thursday marked the first public outing for members of the special counsel’s team since Democrats won future control of the House in the November midterms and Trump fired Attorney General Jeff Sessions and gave the investigators a new boss: acting Attorney General Matt Whitaker. Before the lawyers said a word, the senior … [Read more...] about Mueller power questioned in first post-Sessions court hearing

This is not a predetermined destiny for LGBT+ youth. Indeed, there are many things we can do to help turn the tables and support youth to live happy and healthy lives. At a basic level, this means creating safer spaces for LGBT+ youth at home, at school, and in the community; and making sure that laws and policies protect the health and rights of all youth, irrespective of who they are attracted to or what their gender is. Family members, especially parents, can make a huge difference by being very clear with their LGBT+ teens that they love them and embrace all of the pieces that make them unique and who they are, including their sexual and gender identity. When surveyed, LGBT+ teens who reported that their families supported them in their identity felt better about themselves, had more people who supported them, and were also healthier than those whose family’s rejected or did not fully accept them . On the other hand, LGBT+ youth who do not have accepting families struggle … [Read more...] about The Power of Supportive Environments for LGBT+ Youth

Question: When the government death squads come for your loved ones, how will you stop them? Anti-gun protesters are, almost without exception, utterly illiterate on the topic of history. If they studied any history at all, they would know that authoritarian regimes seeking to concentrate power always seek to disarm the citizenry first. Once that’s accomplished, government death squads can easily accomplish their task of eliminating all political opponents of the regime in power. Government “death squads” have, throughout history, routinely hunted down and murdered not just individuals … [Read more...] about Question for anti-gun protesters: When the government death squads come for your loved ones, how will you stop them?
