A Cruel Disaster
As we celebrate our own close-to-home blessings this fraught Mother's Day, we honor thousands of mothers ripped from their kids by a barbarous regime impervious to the grief, terror, lifelong trauma they've inflicted. Of over 2,800 families, hundreds remain separated because inept thugs "lost" them. They must be reunited, a court says, never mind the thugs whining it's so hard: "The hallmark of a civilized society is measured by how it treats its people and those within its borders."

Ha Ha Good One: Trump's Vile Words and Viler Insinuations on Murdering Innocent Brown People
At a deranged rally in Florida, Trump jubilantly riled up his "psychopathic baying hogs" about the "invasion" of migrants until, when he asked, "How do you stop these people?" one fan gleefully yelled, "Shoot them!" Because in this unholy time and place you can utter abominations out loud without censure, Trump chortled, and the crowd roared. The Pied Piper had done his evil work. "I have not come into this world to make men better, but to make use of their weaknesses." - Adolf Hitler

On Kids In Cages (Still)
One year after the Billion Dollar Loser began his barbaric policy of kidnapping migrant children from their parents at the border, lawmakers awoke to an art installation on the Capitol Hill lawn featuring a caged child and an anguished mother reaching out to him. Advocates says its goal is to remind people of the illegally ongoing "reign of terror," assure suffering families "we haven't forgotten them," and warn Trump they won't "until every single one of them is reunited."

Liberty Is Crumbling
Talk about the sands of time. The winner of Texas Sandfest 2019 created this astounding image of Abraham Lincoln lamenting the state of the republic under the exquisitely apt rubric, "Liberty Is Crumbling." Argues British Columbia sculptor Damon Langlois, "We should realize that, and fight for it." Abe would likely agree: “America will never be destroyed from the outside," he wrote. "If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves.”

No Way To Treat A Child
Calling Israeli detention of Palestinian kids as young as 10 "state-sponsored child abuse," Rep. Betty McCollum (D-MN) has introduced a bill to ban Israel from using any of its bloody billions in U.S. "aid" to pay for "a gross human rights violation against children.” The bill, which would also fund treatment for kids, was welcomed by rights advocates; for former child prisoner Ahed Tamimi, it offers "Palestinian kids and our families a glimmer of hope (after) so many decades of darkness."

DHS Will Start Doing DNA Tests on Migrants To Uncover Imaginary "Fake" Families and This Is All Totally Normal
In a deliciously Nazi-cum-Big-Brother-flavored move aimed at curtailing the "flood" of "fake" families sneaking into the country to steal our cherished mylar blankets, the Department of Homeland Security - just lookit that name - will launch a pilot program DNA-testing migrant families to ensure their "kids" are really their kids and not Skrulls or gang members or part of "child recycling rings." ICE swears they won't use the DNA info for any nefarious purpose, and God knows we can trust them.

Amerika: A Punch In the Face
An artist of the merciless times, Robert Longo's new exhibit Amerika exposes the darkness of our political moment with chilling images - a brooding, factious White House, a 40,000-bullet Death Star for our 40,000 gun deaths, a surreal film of him ripping up Hannity/Khashoggi/Stormy Daniels photos - that are "as subtle as a head butt." “I am preaching to the choir," he says. "But I’m not preaching, I’m fucking screaming to the choir. What the fuck are you going to do about this?"

Emperors On Thin Ice
Citing a "catastrophic breeding failure," a new study in Antarctic Science says the world's second largest emperor penguin colony, which once hosted up to 25,000 pairs of penguins, has seen virtually no births since 2016, when thousands of chicks drowned after the collapse of an Antarctic ice sheet. In a dispiritingly common refrain these days, scientists say the unexpectedly rapid decline - of both ice and penguins- is "not good news."
