Sioux already wrong to evict protesters: Daily Bullshit, January 24-25, 2017 (updated)

I hit ‘publish’ too soon. I’ve added a story on Donald Trump’s orders on authorized migrants.[1]


Brexit

Calexit

Dakota Access Pipeline

That didn’t take long. Remember what I said, just in the last issue, about the Sioux trusting elites?[2] Donald Trump is already pushing forward not just on the Dakota Access Pipeline but on the Keystone XL Pipeline.[3]

For-profit colleges

The Obama administration’s record of cracking down on for-profit scams[4] was one of the few bright spots I saw in that presidency. That makes that administration’s connections in this deal[5] seem rather unseemly.

Unauthorized Migration

I pretty much said all I have to say on this in my dissertation.
