Rosenblum writes: "Venezuelans are dying in the streets to preserve their democracy. All we Americans have to do is vote. If we're not up to that, history will see us as the people who capitulated, dumbly handing over our keys to a self-obsessed clown." 
Why Trump Should Be Afraid With Robert Mueller on the Case 
Bob Dreyfuss, Rolling Stone 
Dreyfuss writes: "By now, it's clear: Robert Mueller, the special counsel looking into Russiagate and related matters, is a determined, relentless inquisitor whose investigation could lead to criminal charges against a wide range of Donald Trump's staff, associates, former campaign officials and members of his immediate family."

Paul Butler, Guardian UK

If the police patrolled white communities with the same violence that they patrol poor black neighborhoods, there would be a revolution."

Robert Fisk, The Independent 
Fisk writes: "When Qatar's Al Jazeera satellite channel has both the Saudis and the Israelis demanding its closure, it must be doing something right. To bring Saudi head-choppers and Israeli occupiers into alliance is, after all, something of an achievement."

Environmental Integrity Project 
Excerpt: "So far, the Trump administration's U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has been lighter on the pocketbooks of polluters than previous administrations, collecting 60 percent less in civil penalties than previous administrations had recovered from environmental violators on average by the end of July in their first year after taking office."
