Open thread for night owls: Exxon fined $20 million for Clean Air Act violations under Tillerson

While Rex Tillerson attempts to run an emptied-out State Department, the company he ran for a decade is once again being called to account for its hostility to American law. ExxonMobil was ordered to pay $20 million in fines for releasing 10 million pounds of pollutants into the air from a Texas chemical plant.

Cartoon: Celebrate President Trump's first 100 days

The first 100 days milestone is largely arbitrary, but Trump made a big deal about it during the campaign. Now he's downplaying it since it's been such a disaster. 100 days is a blip in time when you realize Neil Gorsuch will be on the Supreme Court for probably the next thirty or forty years.

What is a 'sanctuary city' exactly? An immigrant rights group explains

There's been a massive effort from popular vote loser, Donald Trump, and America's most racist Keebler elf, Jeff Sessions, to demonize and twist sanctuary cities into lawless war zones where "bad hombres" run amok (that's actually his cabinet, but that's another story). The truth is that sanctuary city policies are locally decided actions that make cities safer, because local law enforcement agencies are able to build trust with undocumented immigrant residents. The result is a safer community. Of course, that goes against the entire smear campaign that Trump and Sessions have tried to set up. Here are some plain facts about what a sanctuary city is, courtesy a must-read explainer from immigrant rights group America's Voice:

Lead poisoning in American children reaches frightening levels--and only half get treatment

The United States is doing a pitiful job of treating lead poisoning in children. We've spent decades talking about cleaning up lead but apparently we forgot that we also needed to worry about its impact on our kids. And a new report shows that the numbers are actually much worse than we thought. Researchers at the Public Health Institute reported Thursday in the journal Pediatrics that the overall number of children with elevated blood lead levels as of 1999-2000 in the US was 1.2 million, or double what the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention had reported. (The number is likely even higher now, since testing rates have only declined since 2000.) These kids who are never tested or reported to the CDC also aren't receiving treatment.

Corey Lewandowski's latest plan to profit off his Trump connection is to straight-up sell access

Former Donald Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski hasn't registered as a lobbyist, but a document from one of his several new consulting firms makes it sound an awful lot like he's going to be lobbying. Actually, maybe "selling access" is more accurate than "lobbying." A document provided to an Eastern European politician by an international consulting firm that Lewandowski co-founded this year promises to arrange "meetings with well-established figures," including Trump, Pence, "key members of the U.S. Administration" and outside Trump allies. [...]

New York Times analysis of chemical attack is solid reporting, highlights Syrian and Russian lies

The New York Times comes in for well-deserved heat on badly reported articles, like the article just before the election in which the Times went out of its way to kill emerging stories on Trump and Russia. But that doesn't mean there's not some terrific reporting done by the Times , and a prime example is this video analysis of the Syrian chemical attack and statements from the Russian and Syrian government, which was put together by Malachy Browne, Natalie Reneau, and Mark Scheffler.

Republicans admit no Democrats will vote for their deficit-exploding corporate tax giveaway

Democrats just aren't going to help Republicans blow a hole in the deficit with tax cuts that amount to a huge boon for billionaires and corporations, and both the White House and GOP leaders know it. The AP writes: A senior administration official said Thursday the White House plans to push its tax overhaul without any support from congressional Democrats. [...] On Tuesday, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., said he planned to pass a tax overhaul without Democratic support, but only if it didn't add to long-term deficits.

House Democrats ride to rescue to keep government open after Republican fail to govern ... again

The House passed a one-week spending bill Friday morning, 382 to 30, with 207 Republican votes and 175 Democratic votes, meaning the Democrats were necessary to keep this government afloat. Again. That's despite the declaration by Republican leadership that they would have the votes to do it all on their own. After holding the vote open for nearly an hour, they gave up on getting those last 15 Republicans on board and gaveled the vote. Some governing party this is.

ICE really hates all your 'criminal space alien' prank calls. Good.

There are so many things that are wrong with ICE's VOICE office. It's an anti-immigrant smear campaign thinly veiled as a "public safety office." It has historical roots in Nazi Germany, where a similar campaign was launched against Jewish citizens. Yesterday, an immigration attorney discovered that babies were mistakenly included in VOICE's "criminal immigrant" database, because ICE is fucking incompetent. So it's no surprise, then, that outraged Americans pranked the office's 1-855-48-VOICE (6423) hotline with calls about criminal space aliens, something ICE did not quite appreciate. In fact, according to Fusion, ICE "kind of lost their shit."
