http://www.blogtalkradio.com/lmcradione ... episode-83
First Five Days
We review the actions of the new White House administration since Inauguration Day. Counting Inauguration Day as Day One, let's take a look at the civil liberty actions and other major changes of the last several days.
Day One (Inauguration Day) - Civil rights page on the official White House website is removed. The LBGT page is removed. The Native American page disappeared. The military family support page is deleted. The website page regarding Americans with Disabilities, gone. The Texas Supreme Court has agreed to listen to arguments aimed at overturning marriage equality.
Day Two (Saturday) - The White House calls a press conference to berate the press for showing photos of the paltry inauguration attenedance. The press secretary proclaims that these were the hugest crowds ever at any inaugural event. Kellyann Conway insists that the press secretary's lies weren't lies at all, but "alternative facts".
Day Three (Sunday) - Felony riot charges brought against over 230 inauguration protestors.
Day Four (Monday) - Trump signs anti-abortion executive order that will have far-reaching consequences for access to women's reproductive health services here at home and abroad. The White House phone line turned off its public comment access. The White House website is no longer available in Spanish. The White House began banning federal employees from various agencies from participating or commenting on social media of any kind. Also silences USDA scientists until futher notice.
Day Five (Tuesday) - White House expands bans, imposing a media blackout at the Environmental Protection Agency. Trump signed an executive action to allow the continued construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline, in which Trump holds stock.
