LOOP: President says Democrats won’t negotiate on DACA



TRUMP: DACA ‘PROBABLY DEAD’  President Trump said that Democrats’ refusal to deal on immigration means that special deferred action for childhood arrivals (DACA) might expire permanently. “DACA is probably dead because the Democrats don’t really want it, they just want to talk and take desperately needed money away from our Military,” Trump tweeted. http://cvote.it/2Dd8AY1

FLAKE  There are some Republicans who think Trump goes too far in attacking the media. But Arizona Republican Sen. Jeff Flake? He compared Trump to Russian dictator and mass murderer Joseph Stalin. All because Trump referred to the media as an ‘enemy of the people.’ Said Flake: “I don’t think that we should be using the phrase that’s been rejected as too loaded by a Soviet dictator.” http://cvote.it/2DjjITj

INTERNET TAXES GOES TO COURT  The Supreme Court will review a 26-year-old ruling that said retailers can be forced to collect taxes only in states where the company has a “physical presence.” The 1992 ruling created a financial incentive for consumers to purchase goods online to avoid paying state sales taxes — some say at expense of brick-and-mortar stores. http://cvote.it/2Dcc4tN  

MARTIN LUTHER KING, JR  MLK’s niece: “My uncle would have been very pro-life.” Alveda King, director of Civil Rights for the Unborn for Priests for Life, said her uncle’s words show his commitment to respect for life. “He said the Negro cannot win if he is willing to sacrifice the futures of his children for immediate personal comfort and safety,” King said. “Abortion, of course, forces us to do exactly that.” http://cvote.it/2Dfu5Y0

CHURCH IS “OBSESSED”  People say the Church is ‘obsessed’ with sex. When people say that, what they really mean is “they don’t like the fact the Church teaches that sex belongs in a certain place (in a life-long marriage), comes with responsibilities (not just pleasures), and is oriented toward both unitive and procreative ends (again, not just momentary pleasures separate from marriage),” says Carl Olson. http://cvote.it/2Dh6Ahh
