Tis’ true, you must be watching Fox News and reading Breitbart.
No no no, people tend to forget I have not watched broadcast television since 2003. I see YouTube videos of so called news sources but primarily I aggregate from centrist and progressives who have grown distrustful of the Democrat and leftist extremists. those whthose who have until recently also disliked Trump, but called out the false dichotomy that MSM has pushed in the orange man bad mantra despite the truth being obvious to anyone who actually has the ability to think for themselves and doesn't confuse talking heads opinions with truth and facts.
Were is the outrage with those like Adam shift who propped up the Russian Collusion hoax, where is the focus on a sitting president and vice, who took actions to illegally harm the incoming administrations ability to lead our country. why is there no accountability for 3 + years of lying and a Congress that has refused to do their job in favor of obstructing the elected administration from its duties. I hope the DNC completely dissolves into the septic tank it's become and a new party of honorable people rises out of those who have recognized it for what it has become.

ENOUGH BULLSHIT
The media is literally becoming the enemy of society as we know it.
We have to throttle ad revenue for anyone who touts themselves as journalists or news sources or Opinions must not be blended with statements of fact and have Huge labels like they put on tobacco products.

I'm not sure if I completely agree with Tucker on this, but I'm a zero tolerance to any people who defy common decency and the rights of fellow citizens. it's absolutely not acceptable, even a little bit.
When individuals or groups of like minded people endanger anyone with stupidly, it should be purged with scaled prejudice. from the bad cops to the rioters who commit property and violent crimes.
Protecting your fellow man from such a corrective measure is condoning it and enabling it and bearing responsibility for any harm.

Yeah, I know that getting smacked with the truth hurts... actually, I thought it was rather clever...after all, the trump cult insists the “pussy comment” was just locker room bragging, and we all know the phony pretend to care about a Bible Or anything written it, a church or anything of a Divine nature is an act he uses to win over those obviously hypocritical people.

Well you're conflating two unrelated things there, and projecting what you imagine the bible symbolizes, what your moral values are and using the bible as a badge of authority. Jesus said don't do that! Don't wear christianity as a badge. You know some people might say that Magdalene fits into that groupie mindset, especially his contemporaries.

Three men connected to 'boogaloo' movement tried to provoke violence at protests, feds say
NBC News reported last weekend that members of the "Boogaloo" movement were seen at protests in states including Minnesota and Texas, as well as in Philadelphia.

June 3, 2020, 7:12 PM CDT
By Andrew Blankstein, Tom Winter and Brandy Zadrozny

Federal prosecutors in Las Vegas have charged three men alleged to be members of the far-right extremist "Boogaloo" movement with multiple state and federal violations of conspiracy to cause destruction during protests in Las Vegas, as well as possession of Molotov cocktails.

Charging documents say Stephen T. Parshall, aka "Kiwi," 35; Andrew Lynam, 23; and William L. Loomis, 40, all of Las Vegas, were arrested Saturday on a state criminal complaint alleging conspiracy to commit an act of terrorism, material support for committing an act of terrorism and multiple explosives violations. The plot was foiled with help from an informant, authorities said.

The "Boogaloo" movement, which federal prosecutors describe as a "term used by extremists to signify a coming civil war and/or collapse of society," has been linked to some online posts about protests over the death of George Floyd.'

NBC News reported last weekend that members of the "Boogaloo" movement were seen at protests in states including Minnesota and Texas, as well as in Philadelphia.

The movement, which says it wants a second civil war organized around the word "boogaloo," includes groups on mainstream internet platforms such as Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and Reddit, as well as fringe websites including 4chan, according to a report released Tuesday night by the Network Contagion Research Institute, an independent nonprofit organization of scientists and engineers that tracks and reports on misinformation and hate speech across social media.

Nicholas Trutanich, the U.S. attorney for Nevada, said, "Violent instigators have hijacked peaceful protests and demonstrations across the country, including Nevada, exploiting the real and legitimate outrage over Mr. Floyd's death for their own radical agendas."

Charging documents say Lynam and Parshall came to the attention of the FBI in April when someone came forward concerned that the two men were going to conduct a terrorist attack. The FBI said it signed that person up as a confidential source.

Loomis would later come under investigation in May.

The documents say Lynam is an Army reservist, Parshall was in the Navy and Loomis was in the Air Force.

Federal prosecutors allege that the three men, at various times and not always together, discussed various plots to either destroy an observation station at Lake Mead, near Las Vegas, destroy power substations, throw a smoke bomb at a ReOpen Las Vegas rally and other attacks.

On May 27, Loomis and Parshall along with the informant, went on a hike where they are alleged to have "discussed causing an incident to incite chaos and possibly a riot, in response to the death of a suspect (referring to George Floyd) in police custody in Minneapolis, MN."

The plan was for Parshall and Loomis to "firebomb" a power substation to distract law enforcement so they could carry out their plan to incite a riot, the documents say. The plan was ultimately dropped in favor of a new plan, and the trio, along with the informant, planned to take Molotov cocktails to a Black Lives Matter protest, instead, according to the complaint.

"They wanted to use the momentum of the George Floyd death in police custody in the City of Minneapolis to hopefully stir enough confusion and excitement, that others see the two explosions and police presence and begin to riot in the streets out of anger," the documents say.

But because the FBI was monitoring all of the planning through the confidential source, the documents said, it was able to stop the plan from coming to fruition when an FBI SWAT team deployed and arrested Lynam, Loomis and Parshall.

Lynam and Loomis appear to have left sparse social media footprints, but pages that NBC News was able to trace to Parshall offered some clues to his leanings.

In March, in a post about the federal response to COVID-19 on a public Facebook page, "The New Sons & Daughters of Liberty," Parshall commented: "Start. Fomenting. Insurrection."

A Facebook profile — which was traced to Parshall through his username, "cptkiwidparshall," photos cross-posted to Facebook and Instagram, and the online relationships with the other suspects — contains images connected to the far right: a Confederate flag, an image of a rainbow swastika and the "Kekistan" flag, among them. Kekistan is a fictional nation created by white nationalists and far-right trolls, and its flag mimics a Nazi war flag.

A GoFundMe page was created for Parshall on Tuesday by a member of the Southwest Igloo A-Team. "Igloo" is a nickname Boogaloo groups use to evade moderation.

Facebook appeared to have been an important factor for organization. According to the federal complaint, all three indicted men were part of a Nevada Boogaloo Facebook group and met at ReOpen rallies, which were organized on Facebook.

She knows he is a worthless piece of shit...why the struggle? Lack of integrity? If she supports him only because he is a Republican knowing he is a lying conniving corrupt individual and still votes for him, it is a lack of integrity. She admits to struggling with supporting him for a long time, and still she has continued to support him...what does that tell us about her? It tells us she is just another sorry ass Republican who is full aware of the sorry POS trump is; and, knowing who and what he is, won’t do what she knows is right. Knowing and doing, is very different than supporting when you agree—one is being true to yourself and the other is denying what you know to be true.

Detained U.S. Navy veteran freed by Iran, en route home

AP MATTHEW LEE AND ERIC TUCKER
Jun 4th 2020 11:25AM


WASHINGTON (AP) — A Navy veteran detained in Iran for nearly two years has been released and started making his way home, with the first leg on a Swiss government aircraft, U.S. officials said Thursday. “The nightmare is over,” his mother said.

The U.S. special envoy for Iran, Brian Hook, flew to Zurich with a doctor to meet freed detainee Michael White and will accompany White to the United States aboard an American plane, the officials said.

White’s release was part of an agreement involving an Iranian-American doctor prosecuted by the Justice Department, and followed months of quiet negotiations over prisoners. The two countries are at bitter odds over U.S. penalties imposed after President Donald Trump withdrew the U.S. from the 2015 nuclear deal and over the killing by American forces of a top Iranian general in Iraq at the beginning of this year.

I would say to criticize the House's Democrats kneeling with a Kente cloth shawl (given to them by the Black Caucus) over their shoulders as "just a prop" for a false show of solidarity and ignore trump's photo op in front of the church holding a Bible over his head is hypocritical. And the action of the Congressional folks didn't involve shooting rubber bullets and tear/pepper spay at anyone.

I tried to educate myself after hearing accusations about "misuse of the Kente cloth" to understand better ... what I found was that it is revered and used for "special occasions" so I am not sure that this occasion didn't apply. It wasn't like it was used to fashion string bikini bottoms for a wet t-shirt contest. In fact I found them on the Internet and they are hyped for purchase for college graduations, used in weddings, at funerals and other solemn or special occasions.


Democrats criticized for wearing Kente cloth stoles in honor of George Floyd
“This is a mess,” one critic wrote, adding it was “cultural appropriation and pandering.”

June 8, 2020, 9:03 PM CDT / Source: TODAY
By Samantha Kubota

Congressional Democrats wore a traditional African cloth to announce Monday sweeping legislation that aims to increase the accountability of police officers.

The Democrats wore Kente cloth stoles handed out by the Congressional Black Caucus and knelt on the floor of the U.S. Capitol Visitors Center for 8 minutes and 46 seconds — the time former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin’s knee was on the neck of George Floyd — before a press conference announcing the proposed "Justice in Policing Act."

Rep. Karen Bass, the chairwoman of the Congressional Black Caucus, defended the clothing choice to MSNBC.

The significance of the Kente cloth is our African heritage, and for those of you without that heritage who are acting in solidarity,” Bass said at the news conference. “That is the significance of the Kente cloth. Our origins and respecting our past.”

Their clothing choice was derided on social media by some, with one author, Obianuju Ekeocha, posting a video saying the move was “virtue signaling.” (I had to look up the term Virtue Signaling and it is defined as: the action or practice of publicly expressing opinions or sentiments intended to demonstrate one's good character or the moral correctness of one's position on a particular issue. I fail to understand why that would be a bad thing if the feelings/position are in line with the person/people's truth.)

“I’m sure they put around their necks as some kind of mark or show of unity or solidarity with black people,” Ekeocha said in part. “So, in other words…this colorful fabric they had around their necks as some sort of placating symbol to show that they are not racist and they are together with black people. (Again, if this is the case and is honest and geniune, what is the issue exactly?)


...
Social changes and modern living have brought about significant changes in how kente is used. It is no longer only the privilege of royalty; anyone who can afford it can buy kente. The old tradition of not cutting the cloth has also long been set aside, and it may be sewn into other forms such as dresses, shirts, or shoes. Printed versions of kente are mass produced and marketed, and both woven and printed versions are used by fashion designers in Ghana and abroad.

FYI (thanks Google)
Kente cloth is special on many levels. Around the world, the unique patterns and colors are easily identifiable as a representation of West African culture. ... This gives each Kente design its own unique, symbolic value. Kente cloth may symbolize the wearer's status or mark a festive occasion.

It was a disgrace and the Black caucus should be absolutely ashamed.
To say it wasn't pandering would be the biggest joke of the year.
:madd:
I hope the Black community can see this publicity stunt for what it was.

It is her opinion, she's entitled...doesn't make it the gospel does it??? And those who would have you believe that the fact that the ancestors of those making the Kente fabric were involved in the slave trade 200 years ago means that it is now a show of supporting slavery would be exactly the same argument as saying that flying/waving at sporting events/displaying/claiming their rights to/etc the Confederate battle flag is supporting slavery/treason against the United States; and yet, I know that you support the rights of anyone that wants to use that flag and to have statutes and other recognition of Confederate generals/soldiers/etc displayed in public places. And the fact that Congress later declared that Confederate veterans would be recognized and considered to be veterans, by the Federal government , was a generous and nice thing for them to do in trying to heal that part of our history; however, it was a Congressional action with few teeth, little ramifications and little real benefit.

If it had been a bunch of GOP Congress persons in wearing the shawls, would you be trying so had to discredit the action of wearing the shawls in a show of respect and solidarity with Black citizens? You are proving how the "complaint" is just more partisan hate and nothing more. Where is your post concerning peaceful protesters exercising their Constitutional rights to peacefully assemble on the grounds and near the church where they were shot with rubber bullets and sprayed with tear/pepper spray to clear a path so that a hypocritical a$$hole could have a "photo op" holding a Bible he obviously has no respect for as proven by his daily actions??? You don't think that a$$hold trump wasn't "pandering" for Evangelical votes? He knows he doesn't have a prayer without the Evangelical vote (likely the only thing he prays for, if that).

You don't see how virtue signalling is a bad thing? Lordy lordy , how many fake people have pulled the wool over your eyes over the years.

Please explain how you arrive at the judgement that if someone genuinely feels solidarity or respect or appreciation or admiration for someone or some group or organization or what have you that it means they are "fake"?

Example 1: How is it if I praise your computer abilities and am genuinely impressed that you are so knowledgeable and express my thoughts on this website after a particularly frustrating time I had, because of my lack of knowledge, and sought your help, and not expecting nor wanting anything in return "fake" or a bad thing?

Example 2: Now if I said and posted the same because I was trying to butter you up so you'd come to my house and pull weeds, mulch my flower beds and mow my lawn for free, and I really didn't think you were all that particularly talented where computers were concerned, I certainly realize that is not a "good thing" and my purported "praise and admiration" is indeed fake.

Read the dictionary definition of "virtue signaling" that I provided. And please note that I specifically qualified that I didn't think it was a bad thing so long as the feelings or position was genuinely held by the person/people expressing it. I know the difference between someone saying, "of course, I fully support racial equality (and they genuinely do, they live it, and teach it) vs someone saying the same but at the same time won't rent their rental property to people of other races than themselves; teach their children that children who are of different races are inferior; or laughed when that dumbass West Virginia official who said that Michelle Obama was an "ape in heels." BTW, that dumbass WVa official was found guilty and sentenced of a Federal crime (she committed FEMA fraud and stole $18,000). Meanwhile, Michelle Obama's memoir (Becoming) is set to become the best-selling memoir in history, raised two accomplished daughters and she has the respect and admiration of millions.

It is a matter of "truth." The most suspicious and un-trusting people I have encountered during my lifetime are often people whose actions are usually suspect and are not trustworthy. It is called, "projecting."

When they do it to gain advantage, publicly broadcast it, or use it as a badge of authority or credentials.
And especially when they demand others join the latest self affirmation charades that is fashionable.

...but at the bottom line she continues to fail her district and its problems....
The problems in the 12th District in California as well as all the other Districts, as well as all other states, are initially the responsibility of the state and local governments, not the Federal government. "They apparently like her as they have elected her as their representative 17 times. I was never a big fan of Pelosi as I found her to be too far to the left for my interests.

However, I have found that in the last 3 years she has come the closest as any of the members of Congress, and more than most of actually do her job as defined in the Constitution and history of this country. I actually am fairly moderate to slightly conservative except for most, if not all, social issues and our population's Constitutional rights to "life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness" as well as for the welfare of those who are challenged in some way that it seems to be nearly impossible for them to survive without help from the government. Also, rather than putting it into the hands of charitable organization solely, I oppose that because too many of them pick and choose those they want to provide help for and as private entities they have that right and too many folks would be left "out in the cold" both literally and figuratively. There was only one Mother Teresa. Most states could not do this without federal help, much like the additional weekly $600 that is being provided in addition to the state-provided unemployment insurance benefits to those who have lost jobs or can't work because of the current pandemic. I am certain that $600 weekly for up to 4 months has made a really huge different in those folks and their families' lives.

Honesty is paramount to me, always has been as well as a strong sense of justice. I've always felt this way, I was raised by a mother who instilled in us kids that regardless of how much money we had, our physical appearance, talents and all the other attributes that people are often judged on...none of them are as important as keeping our word, and the knowledge that others have in us that we are honest, dependable/reliable, live our lives with the upmost integrity and that our actions be above reproach. This has served me well over the years.

Stupidest SOB to ever sit in the Oval Office; the damage he has caused this country is incalculable. He lacks even the minuscule of abilities to govern in the very best of times, and he has absolutely nothing to adequately govern during these times—he doesn’t even have the sense to listen to those who could help him. This is what happens when you elect a narcissistic egomaniacal madman to office...you get a narcissistic egomaniacal madman who has caused so much damage it will take decades to recover from.

Maybe the U.S. should have named Schofield Barracks in Hawaii, Yamamoto Isoroku Barracks in honor of the Japanese naval officer who conceived of the surprise attack on the U.S. naval base at Pearl Harbor, seeing how some think that it is appropriate to "honor" those who were enemies of the United States or traitors to their country.

IMO, it sometimes take people a long time to come to the realization of how things affect others, we live in our own little worlds and until something extra ordinary invade that world we are fairly oblivious to things that rarely have any affect on us personally or are quite inconsequential in our own lives and environments. When I was much much, very much younger during my childhood and growing up in the south I loved the song, "Dixie" it sounded so upbeat and proud and spoke of a gone-by era that had been romanticized. But as I matured and learned more history and the meaning of the song and that it could be hurtful to those who it was about I no longed "loved" it. And, while I have actually lived and worked at several of these Army installations, I never gave it a second thought, even though I knew who they were named after, because I had seen the plaques and such. But, in hindsight, and thinking about who those people were--actually enemies of the United States (who by the way burned plenty of American Flags) and traitors to the land of the birth in most instances, I understand why we should not have American Installations named after them. To try an justify not making the change, "because we won WWI and WWII wars with soldiers trained at them" is ridiculous. We won those wars because of the men and women of the United States along with our allies and it matters not what the name of the particular installations they trained at.

What would you think of Germany if they were to have a "Hitler Square" in the middle of Munich? Or a"Carl Clauburg Medical School" at an University? Or a street named "Arthur Liebehenschel Platz" in the town where he was the commandant at the Auschwitz concentration camp?

It's no sin to be mindful and emphatic towards others, and certainty not to examine one's own thoughts and feelings about that which heretofore never really mattered because it was inconsequential in our own little world.

By no longer honoring and holding in high esteem those were were enemies and traitors to the United States isn't "erasing history"...the actual history lesson here, is that they were actual enemies and traitors to the United States, and that thankfully they were also the losers in the Civil War and not "heroes" that many want to believe, incorrectly I might add--just proving once again that American citizens have the right to their own opinions and thoughts; but, not to their "own" facts. Facts are facts and facts matter.

Ah, ever the defended of trump...the idiot hasn't got the sense to realize that he is stupid and therefore to not appear stupid at nearly every turn, he should appoint/hire people who are smarter than he so they make him look better and not the bozo he actually is. And if he accidentally does end up with smarter people who actually try to help and guide him, he fires them...he wants no one who is obviously smarter and more decent anywhere around him, because of his gross inferior complex.

trump basically says that Republicans won’t win if action is NOT taken to suppress voters who he believes won’t vote for him. Must be kinda like, “stop people from voting, so he will win”—you know, use trump logic, like stop testing so there will be no new cases.

President Warren G. Harding, the 29th POTUS, has often been declared, thus far, the worse president in America's history. It is absolutely uncanny how the current administration parallels the Harding administration...there are many, a lot of really almost identical situations and consequences between the two. Harding has even be quoted as saying, “I am not fit for this office and should never have been here.” I suspect though that history will one day declare him only the second worse president in America's history.

SUPREME COURT
Supreme Court rules Trump cannot end DACA in big win for 'Dreamer' legal immigrants
June 18, 2020, 9:04 AM CDT
By Pete Williams

WASHINGTON — The U.S. Supreme Court ruled Thursday that the Trump administration cannot carry out its plan to shut down the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, which has allowed nearly 800,000 young people, known as "Dreamers," to avoid deportation and remain in the U.S.
The decision is a big legal defeat for President Donald Trump on the issue of immigration, which has been a major focus of his domestic agenda.

The ruling said the government failed to give an adequate justification for ending the federal program. The administration could try again to shut it down by offering a more detailed explanation for its action, but the White House might not want to end such a popular program in the heat of a presidential campaign.

Immigration lawyers told the Supreme Court after the case was argued last fall that frontline health care workers involved in responding to the coronavirus epidemic rely on about 27,000 DACA recipients, "including dentists, pharmacists, physician assistants, home health aides, technicians" and nearly 200 medical students.

"Termination of DACA during this national health emergency would be catastrophic," they said in an April 2 court filing. The Association of American Medical Colleges told the court last fall — well before the pandemic crisis — that the U.S. is unprepared "to fill the loss that would result if DACA recipients were excluded from the health care workforce."

The court said the Department of Homeland Security did not act properly when it ordered the program ended in 2017. In response to legal challenges, lower court rulings allowed DACA to keep going, letting young people in the program to reapply every two years and remain under its protection. Children of illegal immigrants were allowed to remain here if they were under 16 when their parents brought them to the U.S. and if they arrived by 2007.

DACA's defenders had argued that federal law required the Trump administration to give a detailed explanation before trying to shut the program down — an action that would affect hundreds of thousands of people and the businesses that employ them. Instead, they said, the government simply declared the program illegal. More than 100 business groups, including Apple and Microsoft, sought to preserve DACA, arguing many of their employees are part of the program.

Figures show that over 90 percent of DACA participants have a job. Nearly half are in school. Many don't speak the language or know the culture of their home countries.

Among them is Claudia Quinonez of Maryland, brought to the U.S. at age 11 by her mother, who overstayed a tourist visa.

"DACA truly changed my life. I have a Social Security number. I have the ability to work, to contribute, and pay taxes," she said.
