How Trump’s Twitter account is fueling a GOP money surge

The Hill reports:
When President Trump tweets, Republicans and Democrats on Capitol Hill may see stars. But the Republican National Committee (RNC) sees dollar signs.

The RNC has raised more than $104 million since Trump took office in January, fueled by a surge in donors who have never contributed to the party before. For the first time in recent memory, Republicans are raking in more money from those small-dollar donors than they are from big-spending whales who write four- or five-figure checks.

The surge in contributions has given Republicans a clear financial advantage a year before the midterm elections, an edge some Democrats see as threatening to their hopes of capitalizing on anti-Trump anger both among their base and among independent voters.
Imagine that.

Chicago Public Schools Lose 21,000 students from its rolls in the last two years

The Chicago Sun-Times reports:
Chicago Public Schools on Friday announced another five-figure enrollment drop, counting 371,000 students in the country’s third largest school district.

District officials also released school ratings, blaming the Cubs in part for a dip of schools with the top rating, and named four privately-managed schools that aren’t performing well enough to stay open past June.

CPS has lost about 21,000 students from its rolls in the last two years and now has just about 26,000 more students than the fourth largest, Miami-Dade County Public Schools in Florida. District-run schools serve 289,506 students and privately-managed charter schools account for about 62,435 according to a count taken earlier this month, on the 20th day of school.

The school system has a few hundred more white and Asian students than last year but lost 6,300 African-American children and about 3,700 Hispanic students. The city’s population has been shrinking, notably in black neighborhoods.

The city’s high schools continue to shrink, with more than 20 high schools enrolling fewer than 50 freshmen, four of those enrolling fewer than 20 ninth graders.

CEO Forrest Claypool attributed some of the loss to lower birth rates and immigration rates overall.

Illegals face challenges after Wine Country fires

The San Francisco Chronicle reports:
Javier wanted to see it with his own eyes, to confirm that the neighborhood where he’d raised his two sons, Santa Rosa’s Coffey Park, was no longer there.

Nearly two decades ago, he fled Honduras for America after a hurricane destroyed his business and livelihood. He built a life with his wife and children in the middle-class neighborhood that was rather ordinary — except, perhaps, for his lack of U.S. citizenship.

But as the 51-year-old man turned down the road leading to his rented home on Oct. 9, he wasn’t prepared for the sight of rows of flattened houses, still smoldering a day after the deadly Tubbs Fire swept through. He got out of the car and held his wife and 20-year-old son.

Moving forward from the Wine Country fires will be challenging for thousands of people who lost loves ones, homes, schools, workplaces or other things. But undocumented immigrants like Javier face special hardships due to their status, advocates said.

Andrew Sullivan: The Issue That Could Lose the Next Election for Democrats

New York Magazine has this from Andrew Sullivan:
The Democrats’ current position seems to be that the Dreamer parents who broke the law are near heroes, indistinguishable from the children they brought with them; and their rhetoric is very hard to distinguish, certainly for most swing voters, from a belief in open borders. In fact, the Democrats increasingly seem to suggest that any kind of distinction between citizens and noncitizens is somehow racist. You could see this at the last convention, when an entire evening was dedicated to Latinos, illegal and legal, as if the rule of law were largely irrelevant. Hence the euphemism “undocumented” rather than “illegal.” So the stage was built, lit, and set for Trump.
The struggles of the Democrat.

Trump Likely to Block Release of Some JFK Files. If the decision holds, it could contribute to the belief that the government has something to hide.

Politico reports:
Conspiracy theorists of the world, get ready for some bad news.

Trump administration and other government officials say privately that President Donald Trump is almost certain to block the release of information from some of the thousands of classified files related to the November 1963 assassination of President John F. Kennedy that are scheduled to be made public in less than a week by the National Archives.

Administration officials would not identify what specific information related to Kennedy’s murder might be kept secret on Trump’s orders, though they acknowledged concern over classified documents held at the Archives that were created decades after the assassination—specifically, in the 1990s.
There's more:
In an interview Thursday with radio talk show host—and ever-outraged conspiracy theorist—Alex Jones, Stone said that he had talked to Trump by phone Wednesday to urge the president to release all of the JFK documents. “He did not tip off his current decision,” Stone said. But Trump was “all ears,” he said, and “I am optimistic the president is going to do the right thing.” Stone said he was hopeful that Trump would decide to declassify the full library of documents “based on his general comments and on his long history of supporting transparency.”
Stay tuned.
