"Trump Suddenly Decides NOT To Kill Sick Immigrant Children "
I'll give the President one really weak cheer (out of three) as he's obviously responding to PR blowback and not out of any genuine humanitarian motives.

Some lunatic said: “If antifa gets to the point where they start killing us, I’m going to kill them next,” Kohfield, 32, said.
1. Antifa will never do an such thing as they are not responsible for having committed a single murder ever.
2. Very happy to hear that this dangerous lunatic was stopped in a way that others like him will be stopped later!

"Joshua Dubois: What the President secretly did at Sandy Hook Elementary School"
President Obama played the part of a true mensch after Sandy Hook. He acted as a true "Comforter in Chief!"

Bret Stephens is the fellow who's gotten all bent out of shape over bedbugs. But his main claim to fame is his denial of global warming. It's all very fine and well to present "the other side," but not if the other side is complete and utter horse%$#@. Shame on the NY Times for publishing his shoddy work!

At the end of lengthy description of the latest shooting and a summary of the latest insane loosening of gun laws (Texas), %$#@ing Chuck Todd blames "gridlock!" No, Todd!!! Gridlock is when both sides are to blame!!! That's not the case here!!!


Neil Cavuto is definitely what in the English Parliament would be called a "back-bencher." He's certainly far from a star on Fox News. But he does some good pushback on the President's accusation of  Fox News being disloyal.

"Sick Migrants Undergoing Lifesaving Care Can Now Be Deported"
Rchel Maddow has been reporting on this for a while. Glad to see others are picling up on it.

The NY Times didn't exactly do a single-sourced story

Peters clearly did only a cursory review of old stories. He didn't interview a single rank-and-file member of the Tea Party, though he did interview several political insiders who were linked to the Tea Party's upper echelons.

It was quickly clear to people on the left that the Tea Party was an "astroturf" movement as opposed to a grass-roots movement. A well-funded, top-down movement with a clear chain of command. The NY Times reporter comes up with "Misty Watercolor Memories Of The Tea Party Movement."

The President claims that China called him.. China denies it. It's a sign of the times that people (including myself) assume the authoritarian regime that relentlessly controls information and is currently threatening Hong Kong is probably the side that's telling the truth.

President's really shows at the G7 summit he's just an absolutely awful negotiator. In order to be successful in international negotiations, you have to know what both you and the other guy want. That requires detailed knowledge, study, conversations and thought.

"Stephen Miller: Migrant Kids Already Had 'Psychological Damage' Before They Got Here"
Shorter Stephen Miller: "When kids arrive at the border, they might have problems to begin with, so we're just adding to those problems! We're not creating new problems from scratch!"

Those who oppose pregnancy choice like to pretend their case is simple and just. Babies are good and should live. So when a blck woman tries to point out how racist anti-choicers are, her mic is quickly cut off.

CNN hires Andrew McCabe. Fox News tries to act as though they're morally superior after just having hired former White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders.

Governor Jay Inslee drops out of the presidential race. He won pretty much universal respect from Democratic candidates, ensuring a good appointed position, probably as head of the EPA.

Former Speaker of the House Paul Ryan made it very clear that his heart was in Wisconsin and  went home as much as possible. He just didn't like Washington DC at all. So now that he's retired, he's moving his whole family  to Washington DC!

Seems the President really, truly, was serious about purchasing Geenland from Denmark! This is what minions are for. You send a minion over to Denmark, make a discreet inquiry, they say "Oh, hell no!," you withdraw the offcer. It's all done in private and nobody knows.

The real problem with the President's attitude, and the reason we know he's a racist, is that he thinks that all of the Jewish-American people should think and vote in lock-step unanimity. They should all have the same opinions of Palestinians and of Benjamin Netanyahu and his policies towards Palestinians.

Took five years for the killer of Eric Garner to be fired, but it's finally been done!

The President keeps repeating the claim that he was robbed of the electoral votes of New Hampshire in 2016 by in-person voter fraud. The Chair of the FEC calls him out yet again to either provide proof or to stop making wild, baseless charges. Clearly, the President is trying to excuse losing the 2020 election in advance.

Good! The war-hawks of the Trump Administration get slammed and ignored! Britain joins the rest of Europe in refusing to join the US against Iran.

The "1619 Project," a really good magazine-sized supplement from the NY Times, is available outside the paywall! Link in the piece that reviews it.

And of course there was a right-wing backlash.

It's California vs the Trump Administration. Good news is that CA appears to be winning!

Good! The 9th Circuit Court has absolutely smacked down the Trump Administration's bizarre assertion that detainees don't need basic necessities like soap and toothpaste.

Not that calling her by the name of a famous Native American did her any political harm, but the President is thinking of reviving the slur anyway because he has no imagination. In the meantime, Senator Warren has a plan for that! She's worked out how to mend our broken promises to Native peoples.

Representative Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) wants to visit her grandmother, who is a Palestiian and lives in the West Bank. But Tlaib's proposed visit became, in Tlaib's view, a political football, so she's dropped it.

The President got very upset when he learned tha she had been offered the chance to see her grandmother, but had turned it down. Funny how, in his telling, people always seem to want something from him and they're always desperate to get it!

Oh, good grief! Some idiot convinced the President that Greenland is for sale!!! He seems pretty serious about buying it!

Our local paper reprinted a WaPo columnist who agrees with the State Department's assertion that disagreeing with Israel's policy towards Palestinians equals anti-Semitism. This is a deeply misguided viewpoint that equate the foreign policy of a state with how a group of people is viewed.

"How The El Paso Killer Echoed The Incendiary Words Of Conservative Media"
The NY Times is far from a reliably liberal paper, but they do good pieces from time to time. This is one of them.

Wealthy guy holds a fund-raiser for the President's re-election in the Hamptons. Hell, YES, we have the right to protest that!!!

Wealthy guy who supports the President appears to think that supporting politicians is like a buffet dinner where you're not ordering the racism, just the tax cuts. Nuh-uh. Doesn't work that way.

A company the rich guy was associated with, Equinox, tried to reassure employees by using jargon and management-speak:

"What we have always done and will do in this instance is look out for our employees, and that means understanding the impact, discussing the impact, and then doing the right thing,"

Problem is, they had just violated this understanding!!! Emplyees werer upset that their company was now asociated with the President.

This is a wholly predicatble and entirely expected result. "NYC's $15 minimum wage hasn't brought the restaurant apocalypse — it's helped them thrive"
Keynesian economics predicts this. As wages among food service industry workers rise, so too do people eat out more, thereby putting those rising wages back into the restaurants.

Woo hoo! The Rachel Maddow Show interviewed House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler tonight and the good ship Impeachment has weighed anchor, the engines are fully steamed up and it's underway!!! With the documents mentioned in this piece below, Congress is getting the evidence it's called for. Nadler expects to vote on articles of impeachment by roughly, approximately the end of this year!

Representative Veronica Escobar was invited to stand with the President as he visited El Paso. She said fine, but she wanted to speak with him first. His response made it clear that she was wanted only as a prop for his visit. What she wanted to say was that when it comes to mass shootings the President is part of the problem!

Maggie Haberman of the NY Times feigns innocence/indignation over blatant hypocrisy by the Times, documented by MSNBC's Joy Reid and others.

The President maintains that his rhetoric "brings people together." I guess that's true, if one reads that in the same way that der Fuhrer did. He also brought people together against the Jews and other "undesirables.

Whoa! Tardigrades, "'water bears' that can survive pretty much any environment — including space" were spilled out on the Moon! Who needs Sci-Fi?

Important to keep in mind that mass shooters are often misogynistic.

Fox News host Sean Hannity proposes "surrounding" schools and shopping malls to protect them from mass shooters. Doing that would require a force far larger than invaded Iraq back in 2003 as there are about 100k public and 35k private schools, along with 116k shopping malls. And remember, many places that have been attacked had armed guards! Yeah, I'd rather just reduce the number of military-style guns in the hands of the public.

I've always regarded Congress' demand for the President's financial information to be such a simple, straightforward, open-and-shut case, the DOJ just disgraced itself by arguing otherwise.

As expected, the whole "Presidential" and "Above the fray" image the Trump Administration was trying to project didn't last very long. Kellyanne Conway is "hopping mad" that apparent liberal sympathies on the part of the Dayton shooter weren't reported on. 

The former president tweets that Americans should: “soundly reject language coming out of the mouths of any of our leaders that feeds a climate of fear and hatred or normalizes racist sentiments.”
For some strange reason [/snark], the current President took offense and regarded that as a personal attack.

The Senate Majority Leader's campaign team says these young men wearing "Team Mitch" t-shirts and molesting a cardboard imgae of AOC are not affiliated with the Senator's re-election campaign. The piece notes that the same young men showed up at a rally with large cardboard heads of Supreme Court Justice Kavanaugh.
BTW, "KY ranks 9th in rate of women murdered by men😓"

NY Times publishes a stupendously, amazing tone-deaf piece:

It remained unclear whether Mr. Trump’s 10-minute remarks, coming after one of the most violent weekends in recent American history, could position him to unify the nation...

The MSNBC show tonight, that replacing both Rachel Maddow and Lawrence O'Donnell, is making it very clear that the President shares a good deal of the blame for the killings of this last weekend. No, his 10-minute speech, read off of a teleprompter,  will NOT "position him to unify the nation."

More on the NY Times piece.

"Philly’s Archbishop Chaput: ‘Only a fool’ can believe gun control will solve mass violence"
First, we're not trying to "solve mas violence," we're trying to limit the damage. And yesh, I notice that the celibate Archbishop blames, first and foremost, a "culture of sexual anarchy." Kinda tells you where his head is at.

President's statement on Twitter:

The Media has a big responsibility to life and safety in our Country. Fake News has contributed greatly to the anger and rage that has built up over many years.

Hmm, so if media coverage of the President is making people angry, what kind of coverage is he asking for?!?!?! Yeah, I'm trying to think of my best over-the-top comickal-book style prose that would do justice to North Korean announcers.

Thinkpiece on the latest shootings:

"Trump Claims Deadly El Paso, Dayton Shootings Were Caused By 'Mental Illness'"
One of the contniuing, never-ending,  problems with Republicans blaming mass shootings on mental illness is that if mental illness was the correct diagnosis, why are they then supporting a court case to dismantle the ACA/Obamacare?!?!?!?!

"The House’s top Republican blames video games for mass shootings"
1. Countries like Japan also have violent video games and yet they don't have the same mass shooting problem. Studies show little to no connection between violent video games and violent crimes in real life.
2. Non-shooting games like Mario Brothers and Pokemon are also very popular. From Video Games Chart early October 2019,  I count 46,414,000 shooting video games shipped and 64,090,000 non-shooting games. If there is going to be a moovement to restrict video games, we'd need to distinguish between harmful and non-harmful games.

"Local Politicians Call for Action Following 2 Mass Shootings"
Representative Madeline Dean says:

"While we do not know that any one law or series of laws will eliminate the possibility of a mass shooting, we know that passing commonsense gun reform can reduce the likelihood of mass shootings."

Yeah, I spoke with someone in the anti-war movement who wanted to get Trump into office in order to "heighten the contradictions." Under questioning, he admitted that was a stupid idea.
Trigger warning on this piece: Lots of hate and discontent towards the DSA leadership.

The President's rhetoric on Baltimore is no slip of the toungue. The "invasion" charge is one that he's run in commercials since May of 2018.

Democratic congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez retweeted Martinez's post on Sunday evening and declared that by repeatedly using the words "infestation" and "invasion" to address a "specific, targeted group of people," Trump is implying that they are "vermin." "This is the language of white supremacy & it goes all the way to the top," the freshman lawmaker tweeted. "It's not a matter of political stances. This is stoking hatred + endangering the country."

Ronna McDaniel, Chair of the Republican National Committee, says "No thanks to Democrats..." a tax credit of an annual $1k per child was raised to $2k. The tax credit she's talking about was passed during 2017, a time when Democrats were effectively shut out of any control of the government. She also makes a pretty stupendous claim for the credit "lifting...Americans out of poverty." The credit would, at best, lift a child out of food insecurity to where a child could count on regular, nutritious food. Not trivial, but nowhere near as significant as claimed.

"Beto Says Trump Is 'Encouraging' White Supremacist Violence With His Racism"
Beto O’Rourke is right. The President offers useless rhetoric along the lines of "thoughts & prayers" while making rally speeches that encourage more shooters.

"Mulvaney Insists Trump's Rhetoric Can't Be Blamed For El Paso Shooting"
Actually, it can be. The term is "Stochastic Violence." The person who incites the violence is not directing a specific person to commit a specific action, the person committing the violence is not receiving a military-style order. Rather, the person who incites the violence speaks in general terms and the person who commits the violece understands what to do.

It's kind of difficult for the US to make the case in Afghanistan that "We're here to save you" from the Taliban, ISIS, whatever, when the US is actually responsible for more civilian casualties than the "rebel" forces are.

Progress in Saudi Arabia! "Saudi Arabia will allow women over 21 to travel without permission of male guardianship"

12 billion tons of ice melt in Greenland in a single day. Post includes pictures of seawater coming up through the sewers in Miami Beach.

Lengthy, thoughtful piece on the now-discarded INF Treaty.

So, now that the Pesident has attacked Congressman Cummings over urban poverty in Baltimore, what exactly is his policy on urban poverty? Well, developers exactly like him are a big part of the problem and the policies he's proposed are designed with developers like him in mind.

"Varney: Totally Not Racist Trump Only ‘Describing Reality’ Of Baltimore"
A problem with Stuart Varney's case here. Senator Sanders and Representative Cummings describe Baltimore in bad ways so as to set up their proposed solutions for the city. The President was simply bad-mouthing Baltimore in a way that wasn't simply racist, it was highly reminiscent of der Fuhrer talking about der Juden. The President did not and does not have any proposals to try and resolve Baltimore's urban poverty problems.

The 1991 and 2003 wars against Iraq were the Western powers and Arab allies against that lone state. If the US goes to war with Iran, it'll be the US versus Iran, period!

After a clearly-unqualified candidate for an, what exactly is his policy on urban poverty?  important federal post drops out of the application process:

Trump says to the press "you vet for me" when he names a candidate for a position, says we save a lot of money that way

See, here's the problem. You really, really need someone with meaningful, relevant experience to run the US Government! It can be as a Representative, Senator or Governor. Lengthy time in the military or as state official works too, but the current President is a cautionary tale of what happens when you move someone who's completely unqualified to the Oval Office. You get someone who believes that it's the media's job to vet the candidates that the President puts forward!!!

And actually, the law is very clear. the President can't just pick whomever he wants for the position of DNI.

"Trump imposes more tariffs on China, but he’s out of ideas. Now China holds the cards."
Two and a half years into the job, the President still has no idea what he's doing.

*Sigh* The President was asked about the anniversary of the Warsaw Uprising. It was very clear by his answer he had drawn a complete blank on what that event was. Such an embarrassment to our country!

Democrats are solidly opposed to climate change and Governor Jay Inslee gets a lot of credit for that.

Mueller's testimony appears to have really lit a fire underneath a lot of Democrats to impeach the President, but Speaker Pelosi isn't so sure.

President completely dismisses the idea that he's a Russian asset, fueling certainty that he's a Russian asset.

"As Trump denies racism, most Americans don't believe him"
Essentially, if you're a white, non-college educated, Republican man, you're likely to give the President the benefit of the doubt. If you're pretty much anyone else, well, I liked this line:

As a rule, those who don’t have a problem with race find it unnecessary to repeatedly tell skeptics that they don’t have a problem with race.

So how much progress have the Trump appointees made in coming up to the standards of regular bureaucrats and politicians? Trump's people try to claim that HUD Secretary Ben Carson is smart. He may be smart in certain areas but he acts like a bull in a china shop here. He arrogantly assumed he could use a property when the property owner hadn't agreed to let him use it and invited a politician to join without having given the politician more than a few hours advance notice.

Striking parallels between how youthful criminals (who know they're guilty) and the President, who denies global warming, justify their actions.


This photo is going viral. A young Russian woman (17) calmly reads the Russian constitution that allows peaceful protest. Police stopped, not sure of what to do.

Ex-Fox News military analyst Ralph Peters has some really on-point criticisms to make about the appointment of Representative John Ratcliffe to the position of DNI.
Also, Ratcliffe claims to have played a major role in the terrorism-financing case of the Holy Land Foundation. Funny thing is, neither prosecutors nor defense attorney recall his playing any role at all in that case.

Update: Good! Ratcliffe clearly wasn't qualified for the post. He was a yes-man and a sycophant and that was all the President cared about. Fortunately, looks like others made it clear that the DNI is supposed to be more than that.

During World War II, the Axis Powers considered themselves to be allies. When Japan declared war on the US, Germany followed suit.
After 9/11, the younger George Bush declared Iran, Iraq and North Korea to be an "Axis of Evil." When Bush later invaded Iraq, Iran and North Korea didn't even send messages of sympathy because the "Axis" was nothing more than an American speech-writers fantasy.
Now an American senator has declared yet another "Axis of Evil" and this time, the President is is very clearly not on the same page as he doesn't regard either Russia or North Korea as "evil." So the new declaration is even more stupid and useless than the last one was.

See, here's the problem. Like the President, I'm a white Christian. Are either of us qualified to decide whether we're racist? Of course not. That's like telling a high school student that she's about to take a math test, the test will determine whether she gets into college or not and oh, she gets to grade the test herself. What student in her right mind would not give herself 100%? Of course the President doesn't consider himself racist, he's grading his own test!

A writer at the NY Times admits he made a hash of a statement. Essentially, he felt he was qualified to decide who was a "real" Midwesterner. A blogger agrees that his statement was supremely arrogant and racist.

I dunno, I have lots and lots of comickal book-type conspiracy theories as to why the President pursues the energy policy he does. Convincing answers here. Also, perhaps it's just that combating climate change will require an activist government and right-wingers prefer small, cheap government.

Senator Elizbeth Warren wonders why John Delaney is even bothering to run if nothing can be done.

"Centrist" in this case appears to mean "right-winger." What real and genuine Democrat goes to Fox News to complain about getting his butt kicked in a debate?

Hmm. Yeah, "Republican-lite" is much better term for Delaney.

Fox News hosts Sean Hannity and Laura Ingraham think that "failed liberal solutions" are really terrible for the nation's urban poor. Hmm, I fear that the 1968 movie Oliver! shows us the sort of solution they'd prefer.

"Marianne Williamson (aka Jill Stein 2.0)" attracted lots of negative attention by people who compare her to the current President.

Comment from a Daily Kos blogger: Williamson: [words to the effect of] "we don’t need political insider game and policy wonk. We need a truth teller."

Blogger: Which, yeah, fine. But we kind of need a person who knows how to do policy and you know, be a politician, to actually govern.

The President claims that anonymous validators are calling his office and praising him for...well, it's not exactly clear what. But those unknown African-Americans sure do appreciate him and praise him to the skies.

"This is how America's Afghanistan War ends-- Not with a Bang but with a Mess"
A thinkpiece on how war in Afghanistan might end.

"Trump shrugs at North Korean missile tests, evidence of growing threat"
Sure, what else can the President do? Admit that his whole North Korea strategy is a complete bust?

A speech by the Senate Majority Leader where he never quite gets around to addressing WHY Democrats and Republicans are so divided on election-security bills. Might be because Republicans do better when there's a light turn-out. Might be because Republicans are counting on Russian interference because they know which party the Russians favor.
