Americans fear the wrong enemy. I wonder why?
According to the latest data from Anti-Defamation League’s Center on Extremism, white supremacists were responsible for more than half of the 34 fatalities linked to domestic extremists of all stripes last year, claiming 18 lives in 2017.
That represented a reversion to the long-term trend; right-wing violence had accounted for the largest share of domestic-extremist related killings every year from 1995 until the Pulse nightclub shootings in 2016. Global totals may tell a very different story, but in the United States far-right extremist murders far exceed those carried out by Islamic extremists over the last decade: 71 percent of all murders were carried out by right-wing extremists, and 26 percent can be linked to Islamic extremists.

THE UNINSURED RATE WENT UP IN 2017 — That's according to a new Gallup survey that found the uninsured rate among U.S. adults was 12.2 percent last year, up from a record-low 10.9 percent in the last quarter of 2016.
— It was the biggest one-year jump in a decade. Gallup has been tracking adults' uninsured rate since the start of 2008, and it peaked at 18 percent in late 2013 — right before the ACA coverage expansion began. The uninsured rate then steadily fell between 2014 and 2016, as the Medicaid expansion kicked in, other ACA provisions took effect and the Obama administration heavily promoted the law. Link
And finally, you know why Trump hasn't mentioned Puerto Rico lately? Because he thinks he solved the crisis by throwing paper towels at people. Heck of a job Trumpie!
You'll note that full power is still not restored. The Hurricane Katrina response devastated W. Bush's inept Presidency. Why is Trump getting a pass, media?
