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

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.

Let’s enjoy the white supremacist freakout after DNA tests show they aren’t 100 percent white

Users of a white supremacist message board are shocked to discover they're not as "pure" as they'd like to be

Michael Glassman

Statnews — a digital news site that focuses on medicine and science — published an article on Wednesday about white supremacists taking genetic tests to measure their whiteness. Many users on the white nationalist website Stormfront posted their results from genetic ancestry company 23andme and were unpleasantly surprised to discover that they weren’t as “white” as they thought. Their reactions, as it turns out, are a thing of schadenfreudic beauty.

Here’s one person worried that he or she might be a bit Jewish:

I got 100 percent European on mine, and I’m from the US and so is my whole family. The thing that DID blow my mind is that I got 18 percent Ashkenazic on the standard view and almost 21 percent on the speculative view. (They count Ashkenazic as European.) Looks like one of my grandfathers was secretly Jewish. He always said he was Russian. Welp, I guess he meant THAT kind of Russian. It’s caused me to have to reassess my self-image a whole lot.

Some on the message boards like “Segregationista” did not get DNA testing, but they had advice for other white nationalists who found out they had Jewish ancestry:

I’ve never had a DNA test, but I know where all my ancestors are from. I guess it could be amusing, though, having Jews tell me where I came from. I suppose I could use the the test results to become a citizen of Israel

Looks like we’ve found the first victims of the white genocide.

Trump may be a billionaire. He may not. He refuses to show us his tax returns so we can tell for sure. Trump has pulled a lot of crooked deals with the help of Russians, the USA's biggest adversary. That makes Trump a traitor in my book.

I don't know. Trump beat Hillary on his first try. Hillary is 0 for 2.

Barry Barack will hold the title for worst president ever for ever.

Historians have ranked Barack Obama the 12th best president of all time, the highest rated since President Ronald Reagan, in a new C-SPAN survey released Friday.

Less than a month after exiting the White House, Obama received high marks from presidential historians for his pursuit of "equal justice for all" and for his commanding "moral authority," ranking third and seventh among all former presidents in each respective category. The 44th president also cracked a top 10 ranking for his "economic management" and public persuasion.

Yes we have no bananas (or coffee)

****************************************************

A German supermarket chain removed every single foreign item from one of its stores over the weekend to make a serious point about diversity.

Customers visiting Edeka’s outlet in the northern city of Hamburg on Saturday were only able to buy a handful of nationally sourced or produced items, reports The Local.

It meant that foodstuffs including olive oil from Spain, French wine and pasta from Italy were all temporarily off the menu.

Shoppers also encountered various signs which explained just why staff had almost emptied the store.

“This shelf is pretty boring without diversity,” read one, according to The Independent. Others stated “We will be poorer without diversity” and “Our range now knows borders.”

Videos and photographs of the near-vacant counters are now going viral.

Trump may be a billionaire. He may not. He refuses to show us his tax returns so we can tell for sure. Trump has pulled a lot of crooked deals with the help of Russians, the USA's biggest adversary. That makes Trump a traitor in my book.

White House blasts Republican senator's 'outrageous' criticism of Trump

the White House on Thursday angrily rejected as “ridiculous and outrageous” comments from Senate Foreign Relations Committee Chairman Bob Corker, R.-Tenn., questioning President Trump’s stability and competence.

Corker told reporters in Tennessee last week that Trump “has not yet been able to demonstrate the stability, nor some of the competence, that he needs to demonstrate in order to be successful.” The lawmaker also said Trump “recently has not demonstrated that he understands the character of this nation,” an apparent reference to the president’s response to the white supremacist protest in Charlottesville, Va.

Trump Is Attacking Republicans Like a Dictator and It Could Tear the Party Apart

A month after publicly denouncing a health care bill that the president was desperate to pass, Senator Dean Heller sat uncomfortably alongside President Donald Trump in front of rolling cameras. Holding the floor, Trump did not disappoint, addressing the awkwardness head on with a veil of humor so thin it stood no chance of obscuring anyone's view of the true threat at its heart.

“Look, he wants to remain a senator doesn’t he?” Trump said with a smirk.

Heller rocked his head back and initially burst into a laugh. But, with a subtle yet significant hand on his arm, Trump let him know that the warning was not to be taken lightly.

After racial slurs were found on dormitory message boards belonging to five black cadet candidates at the Air Force Academy Preparatory School this week, the academy's superintendent offered a harsh rebuke of racism, misogyny, and other forms of bigotry.

"If you can't treat someone with dignity and respect, then you need to get out. If you can't treat someone of another gender, whether that's a man or a woman, with dignity and respect, then you need to get out," Lt. Gen. Jay Silveria said to a gathering of Air Force Academy cadets, flanked by academy officers and staff.

"If you demean someone in any way, then you need to get out," he added. "And if you can't treat someone from another race or of different color skin with dignity and respect, then you need to get out."

Lt. Col. Allen Herritage, director of public affairs for the academy, told Air Force Times that the slurs were found Monday. According to a photo posted on Facebook by one cadet candidate's mother, "go home n----r" had been written on one of the boards.

"This is why I'm so hurt!" she said in the post, which was posted on Wednesday and taken down on Thursday, according to Air Force Times. "These young people are supposed to bond and protect each other and the country. Who would my son have to watch out for? The enemy or the enemy?"

Oh, stop lying. It hasn't been 'all of a THE sudden". People and groups have been lobbying to have them removed for well over a century now. In fact, Robert E. Lee was one of the most vocal opponents of them.

With all the work you put into being thoroughly uninformed, you could reduce your efforts by half if you'd only take the time to actually learn something. I everybody emulates your way of 'thinking' then were well on our way of becoming a nation of blithering idiots.

Trump picks risky Puerto Rico fight

'They want everything to be done for them,' the president tweets amid mounting criticism of his administration's disaster response.

By MATTHEW NUSSBAUM and MARC CAPUTO 09/30/2017 07:50 AM EDT
Updated 09/30/2017 03:17 PM EDT

The natural disaster in Puerto Rico has escalated into a firestorm for President Donald Trump, whose Saturday twitter attack on the mayor of San Juan drew harsh condemnations, new charges of insensitivity, and warnings about political fallout.

In a series of Saturday morning tweets, Trump blasted the “poor leadership ability” of Puerto Rican officials, who he said “want everything to be done for them.” Trump also said the island’s leaders “are not able to get their workers to help,” and accused the Democratic mayor of San Juan—who has publicly criticized his administration’s response to Hurricane Maria—of scoring partisan political points.

Even Republicans were uncomfortable seeing television images of suffering Puerto Ricans juxtaposed with Trump’s fighting words, tweeted from his luxury golf course in Bedminster, New Jersey.

“He is definitely not helping,” said Republican state Rep. Bob Cortes, a Puerto Rico native who lives in Central Florida, which has seen a huge influx of Puerto Rican families in recent years. Cortes added that the controversy “gives [Democrats] a platform to register new voters.”

Other Republicans also worry that Trump’s comments could be a godsend to Democrats in Florida—a swing state whose Puerto Rican population of more than 1 million is expected to swell as people flee the storm's aftermath.

From Fox news.

http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2017/09/...ery-effort.html

TRUMP CHANGES TUNE

President Trump on Saturday defended his administration’s hurricane recovery effort in Puerto Rico and questioned the leadership of San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulin Cruz who is criticizing the president's effort to get supplies, electricity and other relief to the U.S. island.

But after facing criticism over his attacks of the mayor, Trump tweeted praise for several other officials involved in the recovery, including the governors of Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands. He also praised Puerto’s Rico’s representative in Congress.

Cruz also argued that Lt. General Jeffrey Buchanan, appointed Thursday to lead the administration’s response on the U.S. island, says he will need more troops and equipment.

“So, who am I?” she asked. “I'm just a little mayor from the capital city of San Juan. This is a three star general telling the world right now he does not have the appropriate means and tools to take care of the situation.”

Retired Lieutenant General: While Trump Golfs, San Juan’s Mayor Is ‘Living On A Cot’

“And the president has shown again, you don’t give a damn about poor people.”

By Sebastian Murdock

For me, Harvey was monumental in Texas because of the amount of flood damage,” Buchanan added. “But the impact here is completely different. It’s like an atomic bomb went off. With all of the wind impact knocking down trees, electrical lines ― it’s just a very different disaster.”

Honoré said the military response to the 3.5 million people without power and supplies should have happened much sooner.

“Not giving the mission to the military” was the first mistake, Honoré said in his interview with CBS. “Look, we got Army units that go do port openings. Not called. We got special forces that could’ve been in every town. Not employed.”

In another interview with CNN, Honoré tied Trump’s response to a overall lack of compassion to marginalized people.

“And the president has shown again, you don’t give a damn about poor people,” Honoré told CNN. “You don’t give a damn about people of color and the SOB that rides around in Air Force One is denying services needed by the people of Puerto Rico.”

Trump's whiplash weekend heightens questions over leadership

By Kevin Liptak, CNN White House Producer

Updated 6:07 PM ET, Sun October 1, 2017

In the span of seventy-two hours, President Donald Trump has fumed and fired a health chief with a penchant for taxpayer-funded private jets, bragged about a recovery process in Puerto Rico that bears little resemblance to reality on the ground, lashed the mayor of the island's capital city for questioning the federal response, and viewed a golf tournament from the "commissioner's suite" at a country club that costs $500,000 to join.

The whiplash weekend just past the eight-month mark of Trump's presidency reflects an administration still dictated by the personal whims of the President, who aides and friends describe as continually agitated by a series of unfulfilled campaign promises and convinced the counsel from his hired hands has steered him woefully off course.

As Trump settled into another weekend at his Bedminster, New Jersey, golf club, the questions about his competence as leader grew louder. Widespread suffering on Puerto Rico has been unmatched by the rhetoric coming from the White House, where the recovery effort is described in far rosier terms.

Questions about Trump's leadership are not new, but the unmet needs of Puerto Rico — the majority of the island is without power, while drinking water and fuel remain scarce — have placed his shirking of presidential norms into sharper relief than ever.

You're delusional if you you think you can justifiably equate CNN's slightly left-of-center reporting with the extreme-right pundit barking of CNS News.

And no, I don't get my news from CNN.

Very interesting.

https://www.quora.com/On-a-liberal-to-co...n-Times-and-NYT

It’s important to know news bias but it’s also important to know if news media are honest and factual.

Some news sources are highly biased, but they may still be quite factual, they just cover stories which support their point of view and/or they use “loaded” language in reporting. Mother Jones on the left, and Toronto Sun on the right, for example, are known to report accurately, but are very biased. Others, do just flat out lie or leave out important facts, which is why I think you need to know both the bias and truthfulness of your preferred news media.

One good source for determining whether a media source is factual or not (fake news) as well as the political bias it espouses is Media Bias/Fact Checking. They list over 1100 so-called news sources. In terms of bias, they use 5 categories: Left Bias, Left-Center Bias, Least Biased, Right-Center Bias, and Right Bias.

Of the news sources you listed, Media Bias/Fact Checking rates most of them “Factual Reporting: High” and say are “usually well sourced and factual”. The exceptions are MSNBC and Fox News. They are listed as:

Fox News Factual Reporting: MIXED

Notes: Fox News Channel has been accused of biased reporting and promoting the Republican Party and has been deemed the least accurate cable news source according to Politifact.

MSNBC Factual Reporting: MIXED

Notes: Has left wing bias in reporting and wording. MSNBC has also made some false claims according to Politifact.

Here’s a list from Media Bias/Fact Checking that includes the news sources you mention. I’ve highlighted and italicized the media you asked about:

Left

Mother Jones, Slate, MSNBC, Huffington Post, Center for Media and Democracy, Change.org, Daily Beast, GQ Magazine, Move On, People Magazine

Center Left

Washington Post, New York Times, Sky News, CNN, ABC, CBS, NBC, CNBC, BBC, NPR, Los Angeles Times, Chicago Sun Times, US News & World Report, Time Magazine

Least Biased

USA Today, Reuters, Associated Press (AP), United Press International (UPI), International Business Times, The Economist, Harvard Political Review, Politifact, Pew Research, Factcheck.org, C-SPAN, Christian Science Monitor, Voice of America


Center Right

New York Post, Washington Times, Boston Herald, Wall Street Journal, Military Times, Florida Times Union, Dallas Morning News, Orange County Register, Forbes Magazine, Fortune Magazine, London Times, Daily Telegraph (London), Wikileaks

Right

Fox News, Breitbart, Christian Post, Drudge Report, Toronto Sun, Truth in Media, Unbiased America , National Review, Judicial Watch, Independent Journal Review

Many other newspapers, magazines, radio stations, and television news stations are rated by this group. For more information please see their website. Media Bias/Fact Checking

And if it's something YOU'RE claiming, you can bet the farm on the fact that you'll be proven to be 100% wrong. So, at least MY garbage passes the "Smell Test".

Yeah, you keep saying that, but EVERY time I ask you to provide actual proof, you NEVER do.

So, now's the perfect time to put me in my place once and for all by providing all the examples of the "MANY times I've been proven wrong" as you claim I have.

You won't, because you can't, because it isn't true, because unlike you, I usually take the time to get my facts straight before pathologically flying off half-cocked only to post the first witless thing that spills from my brain. You sound just like Trump for God's sake.

Now have at it, my hopelessly wooden-headed friend.

– Anxiously awaiting your inane reply.

You know I'm right! You're just to much of an arrogant self centered idiot to admit it! Believe me if I had time I would prove you wrong!

LOL. What? You are the one shooting from the hip. Exactly as Trump does when he tweets in the early morning hours before anyone is there to babysit him.
