Anyone else notice the total absence of comment by the forum's normally pathologically obsessive far-right fanatics today?

They all know they can't defend their otherwise indefensible racist positions.

Cockroaches always scatter when exposed by the light. Busy digging new rat-holes, no doubt.

http://www.nbcnews.com/news/us-news/phoenix-mayor-doesn-t-want-president-trump-s-rally-his-n793371

President Donald Trump plans to rally supporters in Phoenix next week, and Phoenix Mayor Greg Stanton is not happy about it.

Trump's campaign announced the event Wednesday — a day after the president blamed "both sides" for weekend violence in Charlottesville, Virginia, between white supremacists and counter-demonstrators.

The Aug. 22 rally will take place at the Phoenix Convention Center, the campaign said.

"I am disappointed that President Trump has chosen to hold a campaign rally as our nation is still healing from the tragic events in Charlottesville," Stanton said in a statement Wednesday afternoon. "It is my hope that more sound judgment prevails and that he delays his visit."

Maybe they are afraid of being called out for their hypocrisy?

September 22, 1862: Lincoln issues Emancipation Proclamation

http://www.history.com/this-day-in-history/lincoln-issues-emancipation-proclamation
Republican President Abraham Lincoln issued the Emancipation Proclamation during the Civil War. In 1865, the 13th Amendment emancipating the slaves was passed with 100 percent of Republicans (88 of 88 in the House, 30 of 30 in the Senate) voting for it. Only 23 percent of Democrats (16 of 66 in the House, 3 of 8 in the Senate) voted for it.

Slavery Roots of the Democratic Party

Following the Civil War, 23 blacks — 13 of them ex-slaves — were elected to Congress, all as Republicans. The first black Democrat was not elected to Congress until 1935, from the state of Illinois. The first black congressional Democrat from a Southern state was not elected until 1973.

On July 4, 1867, in Houston, Texas, 150 blacks and 20 whites formed the Republican party. No, not the Black Texas Republican Party, they founded the Texas Republican Party. Blacks across Southern states also founded the Republican parties in their states.

Fugitive Slave Laws

In 1850, Democrats passed the Fugitive Slave Law. If merely accused of being a slave, even if the person enjoyed freedom all of his or her life (as approximately 11 percent of blacks did just before the Civil War), the person lost the right to representation by an attorney, the right to trial by jury, and the right to habeas corpus.

Democrats, in 1854, passed the Kansas-Nebraska Act. This overturned the Missouri Compromise and allowed for the importation of slaves into the territories. Disgusted with the passage of this Act, free-soilers and anti-slavery members of the Whig and Democratic parties founded the Republican Party — not just to stop the spread of slavery, but to eventually abolish it.

Civil Right Laws

In 1868, the 14th Amendment was passed giving the newly emancipated blacks full civil rights and federal guarantee of those rights, superseding any state laws. Every single voting Republican (128 of 134 — with 6 not voting — in the House, and 30 of 32 — with 2 not voting — in the Senate) voted for the 14th Amendment. Not a single Democrat (zero of 36 in the House, zero of 6 in the Senate) voted for it.

When Southern states balked at implementing the 14th Amendment, Congress came back and passed the 15th Amendment in 1870, guaranteeing blacks the right to vote. Every single Republican voted for it, with every Democrat voting against it.

Ku Klux Klan

In 1872 congressional investigations, Democrats admitted beginning the Klan as an effort to stop the spread of the Republican Party and to re-establish Democratic control in Southern states. As PBS’ “American Experience” notes, “In outright defiance of the Republican-led federal government, Southern Democrats formed organizations that violently intimidated blacks and Republicans who tried to win political power. The most prominent of these, the Ku Klux Klan, was formed in Pulaski, Tenn., in 1865.” Blacks, who were all Republican at that time, became the primary targets of violence.

Jim Crow Laws

Between 1870 and 1875, the Republican Congress passed many pro-black civil rights laws. But in 1876, Democrats took control of the House, and no further race-based civil rights laws passed until 1957. In 1892, Democrats gained control of the House, the Senate and the White House, and repealed all the Republican-passed civil rights laws. That enabled the Southern Democrats to pass the Jim Crow laws, poll taxes, literacy tests, and so on, in their individual states.

Civil Rights in the ’60’s

Only 64 percent of Democrats in Congress voted for the 1964 Civil Rights Act (153 for, 91 against in the House; and 46 for, 21 against in the Senate). But 80 percent of Republicans (136 for, 35 against in the House; and 27 for, 6 against in the Senate) voted for the 1964 Act.

Trump Is Just Six Senate Votes Away From Impeachment

At some point in 2019 (if not sooner) a Republican Senator may walk into the Oval Office and say to President Trump: “Mr. President, we don’t have the votes,” at which point the Trump presidency will end in a resignation or a conviction in the Senate.

This scenario actually occurred forty-three years ago this summer when Republican Senator Barry Goldwater walked into the Oval Office and told Republican President Richard Nixon that they didn’t have the votes in the Senate to save his presidency.

Following impeachment in the House, a trial takes place in the Senate. Conviction requires two-thirds of the Senate and by my count there are already twelve senators who have shown a willingness to take on the president when they believe he is in the wrong.

If you add that to the forty-eight Democrats in the Senate (who have shown no inclination to work with this President), Donald Trump could be six votes away from conviction in the Senate.

Donald Trump’s Art of the Deal co-author Tony Schwartz is predicting that the president is getting ready to call it quits ― and that the resignation will happen soon.

In followup tweets in response to questions, Schwartz predicted Trump would make a deal for immunity in the Russia investigation in exchange for his resignation.

“The Russia stuff will be huge,” he wrote. “He doesn’t want to go to jail.”

He also urged Trump’s opponents to keep up the pressure, and he slammed the president’s elder children

Schwartz has been predicting resignation as Trump’s endgame, making similar comments in May.

“I surely believe that at some point over the next period of time he’s going to have to figure out a way to resign,” Schwartz told CNN at the time.

Despite authoring a book with Trump, Schwartz advised the campaign of 2016 Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton for free.

“This is my penance for having created a man who has become a monster,” he said in September. “I’ve spent 30 years feeling bad about it.”

Schwartz also said he would donate his share of the profits from Art Of The Deal to the National Immigration Law Center, an organization that helps low-income immigrants.

John Kelly’s in a ‘Bad’ Mood Over Trump, Nazis, and ‘Rogue’ Bannon

No one truly blames him for the past week. But it has exposed the limits of his power.

Another White House official, when asked by The Daily Beast what Kelly’s current mood or state of mind is, would only say, “bad.”

Officials spoke on the condition of anonymity because they were not cleared to discuss internal drama.

President Trump’s approval rating is at its lowest since he took office with only 35% of Americans giving him a positive rating, according to a Marist Poll released Wednesday.

Although he is still popular among Republicans, his key constituency, his job performance rating has dropped among strong Republicans from 91% in June to 79% now.

The poll was conducted Aug. 8 through Saturday, the day Heather Heyer, 32, of Charlottesville, Va., was killed as she walked away from a protest of the Unite the Right white supremacist rally in Charlottesville.

“While Republicans are still largely in Trump’s corner, the cautionary tale for the president lies in the softening of support at his base,” said Lee M. Miringoff, director of The Marist College Institute for Public Opinion. Since his numbers among Democrats and independents are weak, a crack among his most ardent supporters is something Trump can ill afford.”

According to the poll, 60% of Americans do not believe Trump is honest and trustworthy while 37% think he is. Among residents nationally, 75% consider Trump to be temperamental while 21% said he is level headed.

40 Percent of Americans support Trump’s impeachment, per new poll

“Four in ten Americans now support the impeachment of President Donald Trump — a ten point jump in the last six months — according to a new poll from the Public Religion Research Institute (PRRI),” one of us writes.

“The survey found that 40 percent of Americans — including nearly three-quarters of Democrats but just seven percent of Republicans — back impeaching the president and removing him from office. That’s compared to 30 percent who said the same in February. Trump’s overall favorability rating in the poll stands at 38 percent favorable, 56 percent unfavorable

That might make sense if you were to you apply your idiotic theory of double-standards by criticizing Republicans instead of Democrats for everything they did when they were still liberals (and vice-versa).

Montel Williams: Charlottesville terrorism exposes alt-right American Taliban

Montel Williams, Opinion contributor
USA Today

Aug. 14, 2017

We face an existential threat from within in the form of the so called alt-right, which in reality is a loose confederation of Nazis, racists, bigots and anti-Semites. We ought to call them what they are: the American Taliban.

The ominous nature of what happened in Charlottesville, Va., on Saturday cannot be understated or ignored. Some have said that there aren’t words, but there are words, some that can’t be printed in the newspaper. These events should shock our national conscience and lead us all to pause in sober reflection. Former vice president Joe Biden put it well when he tweeted, “There is only one side.”

I am no fan of Pence's conservative philosophy. It may be much like Reagan's. But I think he is at least an honest man. Trump is crooked like Nixon but Trump is dumb as a box of rocks besides. Trump will probably go down as our worst president ever.
