    Trump may have just gotten into another obstruction of justice situation.

    Maddow: Trump’s attempt to kill Arpaio trial may have blown up his Comey firing ‘ignorance defense’

    Maddow posed questions about Trump’s interference to former U.S. Attorney Barbara McQuade who issued a series of statements that should worry Trump’s attorneys.


    According to McQuade, “This could be a separate count of obstruction of justice against the president if the president tried to interfere with the Arpaio prosecution.”


    More importantly, she added, “If Sessions or anybody else explained to Trump that it is inappropriate to interfere with a criminal investigation before Trump attempted to do so with former FBI Director James Comey, that could help establish that Trump understood that what he was doing in firing James Comey was illegal.”

    Jim Wright points out why Trump supporters are generally seen as stupid. Just for reference, there were no major hurricanes (categorized as Category 3 and above)that struck the US during either of Obama's terms.

    My comment regarding Trump's idiotic brag yesterday went viral on Twitter.


    The responses from pro-Trump trolls and bot swarms have been ... interesting.


    But this response is actually from a real person who seems to think Obama went golfing during Hurricane KATRINA.

    A really fantastic piece of journalism on the mismanagement of the Department of Energy, and how it is a danger to everyone. A whole department left in limbo that is essential to the US' nuclear programs, as well as their nuclear clean up and nuclear risk aversion programs, slashed or forgotten about. Programs that invest in technology that wouldn't be normally funded(Tesla exists because of it), and contribute to the strengthening of their electrical grid completely cut.

    The administration isn't interested in any of it because it doesn't contribute to their short-term profits or stroke their ego. As a Canadian it's mostly just sad to look at, that a lot of progress and knowledge is just getting forgotten about, but the lack of concern by the administration for their whole nuclear system is downright scary. The mishandling of this department has the ability to affect us very easily if things go south, which seems likely unless they turn things around quickly. I guess that's whats happen when you have an inexperienced narcissist at the helm of the country who thinks he can run the country like a business, but doesn't take the time to actually learn what anything does.

    It's a long read, but I recommend a quick skim to get the gist of it(Mr. Oilers). Very eye opening. Obviously it has bias but most of the information is coming straight from those who have worked, or work in the department.

    "Good people on both sides"
    New Video Shows Man Shooting Gun Near Crowd of Counter Protesters in Charlottesville

    With President Trump in the White House it’s clear that neo-Nazis, Klansmen, and just all around ****** people now feel like they can walk around in public shooting guns near crowds with impunity. Hopefully the arrest of this unnamed man changes that ever so slightly. But with pardons now on the table, who knows what’s going through the minds of the fascists organizing the next Charlottesville and the one after that? Nothing good, to be sure.

    Right wing "News" definition of "fake news", reporting on the media reporting on something that Trump himself said he did.

    Hannity attacks the media for reporting Trump did something that Trump admitted doing

    While introducing a video montage of anchors from MSNBC, ABC News, and CNN pointing out that Trump seemed to time the Arpaio pardon to coincide with Hurricane Harvey approaching landfall, Hannity said, “Watch how insane the media in this coverage is. You can’t make this up.”


    After the montage ended, Hannity took a cheap shot at MSNBC’s Brian Williams. Ingraham chimed in by saying, “The idea that Donald Trump has to wait until a hurricane to do something that the media will find offensive is just a total knee-slapper.”


    But Trump himself admitted he intentionally timed the Arpaio pardon to coincide with wall-to-wall coverage of Hurricane Harvey during a news conference earlier Friday.

    A petition to Congress to declare Antifa "a terrorist organisation" has reached over 100,000 signatures.

    https://petitions.whitehouse.gov/pet...organization-0

    That is not an idle threat - it shows how effective this organization is in polarizing North American society. Not only in empowering the right wing, but even making many left wing people turn away from it. Antifa also makes things look even bleaker for other liberals (i.e. it's making it look like people on the left need to think like anarchists if they are going to get anywhere). What Antifa is doing are the tactics for engineering a civil war, not a soft coup. This alt-left and a media who is quietly supporting it is sowing division and hatred which will eventually spill over. We've all seen it happen before (Ukraine, Arab Spring, etc.), where the media has fully participated in the game of inflaming political or national differences, and it led to a catastrophe.

    Like Trump or hate Trump I think people have to let democracy run it's course. That's why there is a 4 year electorate cycle. If you do not like who is in then they can be voted out. U S A citizens should start cleaning up their mess from the before and aftermath of Trump being sworn in. Trump never broke any democratic rights by closing the borders. The people he is trying to keep out are not U S A citizens and there fore had no U S A democratic rights. Sure it caused confusion for some people with visa's etc but it seems that is sorted out. The constant knee jerk reaction from the Hillary camp fueled a lot of tension and discourse. Clinton should have come out and said she accepted the vote, this is how democracy works and let's move forward. Instead she pouted and blamed everyone for her spectacular loss. She may hate Trump but she should definitely respect the Presidential Office. Her rabid followers should do that also instead of going on a rampage of mayhem. Don't respect the sitting president fine, but respect the Office.

    Yeah, Top_Dawg loves it.

    These antifa wingnuts might be the best thing ever for Trump's re-election.

    And selfishly, Top_Dawg hopes these protests and counter-protests continue every weekend all over the U.S.

    No matter who started the petition, it's a petition against an organization that promotes intimidation and political violence - and it has gained tons of support.

    Hundreds of thousands of people who have signed that petition agree that if you need to resort to violence to defend your political beliefs, your political beliefs suck.

    Trump goes to Texas, but not to show compassion and sympathy for those affected by the hurricane, no. That's not his style. He goes to hold another rally for an election that is over 3 years away. The spotlight was in Texas, so he followed it.

    Apparently he didn't even meet with any hurricane victims at all. I usually don't like politicians going to disaster zones in the first place, but if your going to be there anyways, providing some hope is the least you can do.

    He's a Trump supporter, the brother of Trump appointee Betsy DeVos and lobbying the Trump Administration to hire more of his mercenaries.

    Blackwater Founder Erik Prince Implicated in Murder
    Sworn statements filed in Federal Court allege that Blackwater founder Erik Prince launched a “crusade” to eliminate Muslims and Islam.

    A former Blackwater employee and an ex-US Marine who has worked as a security operative for the company have made a series of explosive allegations in sworn statements filed on August 3 in federal court in Virginia. The two men claim that the company’s owner, Erik Prince, may have murdered or facilitated the murder of individuals who were cooperating with federal authorities investigating the company. The former employee also alleges that Prince “views himself as a Christian crusader tasked with eliminating Muslims and the Islamic faith from the globe,” and that Prince’s companies “encouraged and rewarded the destruction of Iraqi life.”


    In their testimony, both men also allege that Blackwater was smuggling weapons into Iraq. One of the men alleges that Prince turned a profit by transporting “illegal” or “unlawful” weapons into the country on Prince’s private planes. They also charge that Prince and other Blackwater executives destroyed incriminating videos, emails and other documents and have intentionally deceived the US State Department and other federal agencies. The identities of the two individuals were sealed out of concerns for their safety.

    https://www.thenation.com/article/bl...icated-murder/
    And some additional background.

    The founder of Blackwater is now part of the Trump-Russia story because of course he is.

    The Washington Post reports that Erik Prince, the brother of Education Secretary Betsy DeVos and the founder of the disgraced mercenary empire Blackwater, met a “Russian close to President Vladimir Putin” on January 11 in an attempt to set up a back channel between Donald Trump and Putin. The meeting took place in the tiny archipelago nation of Seychelles and was allegedly brokered by the United Arab Emirates. Although a spokesman for Prince admitted that a meeting took place, the spokesman also called the report a “complete fabrication.” (How it could be a “complete fabrication” if a meeting did, in fact, occur is unclear.)


    Sean Spicer meanwhile issued a classic non-denial denial. “We are not aware of any meetings and Erik Prince had no role in the transition,” said Spicer, the least credible person in Washington, whose statements are regularly proven false. It’s true that Prince had no official role in the transition but only a few days after the alleged meeting took place, Jeremy Scahill, who wrote a book on Blackwater, reported that Prince was informally advising Trump. “Prince clearly views Trump’s vow to bring back torture, CIA-sponsored kidnapping, and enhanced interrogations, as well as his commitment to fill Guantánamo with prisoners, as a golden opportunity to ascend to his rightful place as a covert private warrior for the U.S. national security state,” Scahill wrote. Prince has ties to DeVos, obviously, but is also close to Steve Bannon.

    For someone who claims he's not racist and anti-Semitic, Trump sure likes racists and anti-Semites.


    Trump picks ‘Jew counter’ at center of Nixon-era anti-Semitic campaign to lead powerful think tank

    As The Atlantic has detailed, Nixon had come to believe that Democratic Jews in the BLS were conspiring against him after the bureau released a report playing down a drop in the unemployment rate, and ordered Malek to work on purging them from leadership positions.


    “We’ve got to get a man in charge who is not Jewish to control the Jewish … do you understand?” Nixon told chief of staff H.R. Halderman.


    In 2010, Slate characterized the episode as “the last recorded act of official anti-Semitism by the United States government.” And while Malek later said he was simply following Nixon’s orders and played no role in the demotions — “If I had even been peripherally involved or asked to alter someone’s employment status I would have found it offensive and morally unacceptable, and I would have refused,” he told the Washington Post in 1988 — Nixon-era memos released in 2007 revealed he was lying.

    Who knows more about fraud than a fraudster?

    Dept. of Ed hires new fraud chief who was a dean at a school that paid $100 million fraud settlement

    And now, thanks to Betsy DeVos and Donald Trump, the agency will be led by Julian Schmoke Jr., a former DeVry University dean—the same DeVry University that was forced to pay a massive $100 million settlement for deceptive practices in December 2016:

    DeVry University will pay $100 million to settle a lawsuit that alleged its ads misled prospective students, the Federal Trade Commission said Thursday.


    The money will go back to tens of thousands of students that attended DeVry between 2008 and 2015. Some will be reimbursed with cash and others will receive debt relief.


    The complaint alleged that DeVry's TV, radio, online and print ads touted inflated job placement rates and post-grad income levels. Some ads, for example, said that 90% of grads since 1975 found jobs in their fields of study within six months of graduation. The Department of Education found that the college could not substantiate that statistic, and has prohibited the school from making that claim.
    So, Donald Trump—who paid a $25 million Trump University fraud settlement in December—will be appointing the former dean of a for-profit college that paid a $100 million fraud settlement in December, to oversee the agency responsible for policing fraud and protecting students and taxpayers.

    His comments about the hurricane and flooding are almost surreal. He keeps talking about how "historic" it all is, but not really in a negative way. It's like he's relishing the opportunity to play a heroic Commander in Chief in a movie playing in his own sad little mind.

    To be completely equivalent you also need to condemn preparation for violence by the less extreme right - pretty much the whole second amendment cult. Preparation for armed uprising against a hypothetical oppressive government is not excused simply because the oppression they imagine has no occurred, unless you also excuse BLM violence on the grounds that oppression HAS occurred.

    What oppression ?

    To Top_Dawg's recollection the whole Black Lives Matter movement was a response to the police shooting of a black man.

    And then they propagated this fictitious narrative that police shootings of black men was an epidemic.

    From what Top_Dawg has read, this so called epidemic has been debunked by statistical data again and again and again across every jurisdiction all across the U.S.

    Even black police officers now refer to BLM as ' black lies ' not ' black lives ' .

    Exactly what oppression of BLM has occurred ?

  49. #1149

    It hasn't been debunked. Yes, more black people are shot by other black people, if that's what you're thinking of. But that does not mean that black people are treated differently by police to the extent where it borders on oppression. Even here black men get followed by police and treated with suspicion by neighbours in a way that other people are not.

    BLM is the response to that treatment in general. Perhaps ignited by a specific incident buy it is not all about that one guy in furguson.

    I will say that there are legitimate reasons for BLM to exist, but there are a lot of people within the movement who have done a lot of harm to the goals and perception of it. If BLM took the time to distance themselves from those people, it wouldn't really be an issue, but they seem to embrace them.

    Officer to woman during traffic stop: 'We only kill black people, right?'

    Exclusive dash-cam video obtained by Channel 2 Action News caught an officer’s interaction with a woman who said she was afraid to move her hands during a traffic stop.


    Cobb County police Chief Mike Register told Channel 2 Investigative Reporter Mark Winne that after Channel 2 Action News submitted an open-records request, he and his command staff looked at the video.




    “Remember, we only kill black people. We only kill black people, right?” the Cobb County police officer can be heard saying on the video.

    So Trump is speaking out for the Republican party when he's defending the Nazi/KKK/Alt-right groups.

    Furious Michigan Republicans want black outreach chief fired for not defending the Confederacy

    "To reach out to voters, Bradley routinely expresses his thoughts on Facebook about news events — including the white supremacist rally in Charlottesville and President Donald Trump’s controversial pardon of racist former sheriff Joe Arpaio.


    “You can’t claim to be from the Party of Lincoln and defend the confederacy,” Bradley said in one post — and his fellow Republicans were outraged.


    Republican social media users called for Bradley to be fired from the job he’s held for three years, the Free Press reported.
    “Wayne holds a paid position within the Republican Party, he is a party official,” complained Brian Pannebecker, an anti-union activist. “He is WAY out of line adopting the liberal positions he has taken, and needs to do the honorable thing, stay true to his values and resign his position with the Republican Party.”"

    http://www.rawstory.com/2017/09/furi...gjtKA.facebook
    And there you have it, speaking out against racism and not defending the confederacy are liberal values and not part of the Republican way of thinking.

    How Trump's firing of Comey may take down Mike Pence as well.


    Law prof explains legal reasoning why Trump’s new memo puts Mike Pence ‘in legal jeopardy’ for impeachment

    "“Let me explain why this timeline puts him in legal jeopardy,” Shugerman began. “So, we know that this letter was drafted on one day, and then after Steven Miller came back with that draft, it was read in a room of people, including Vice President Pence. And when that letter was read, it had, quote, The New York Times talks about a screed, and it identified all of these other connections to the Russian probe for why Trump had decided to fire Jim Comey. Then after this letter is edited, Mike Pence then tells the media that the Comey firing was not connected to the Russian probe, and he said it was due to Rod Rosenstein’s recommendation. Those statements are untrue.”


    He explained that because Pence heard the first letter and the second letter and lied about it, it now “implicates Mike Pence now in a combination of conspiracy to commit obstruction of justice, aiding and abetting obstruction of justice, and also a relatively less known felony called misprision of a felony.”


    Shugerman said that misprision of a felony is when a person like Pence “has knowledge of a felony” and then “conceals and does not make it known to the legal authorities,” he can be found guilty."

    Far-right German candidate promises to get rid of Arabic numerals
    ‘Just wait until I am mayor … then there will be normal numbers,’ says NPD mayoral candidate.

    Otfried Best, who is hoping to become mayor of Völklingen, near the French border, was asked by a member of Die Partei, a satirical party, during a debate earlier this week what he thought of Arabic numerals used in the town, Stern magazine reported.


    “Mr. Best … I find it alarming that in Völklingen many house numbers are displayed in Arabic numerals. How would you like to take action against this creeping foreigner infiltration?” asked the Die Partei politician.


    The audience cheered and laughed, but Stern reported that Best gave a serious answer: “You just wait until I am mayor. I will change that. Then there will be normal numbers.”

    North Korea's leadership may be insane but they're not suicidal. They're enjoying the fact that when the say "jump", Trump answers "How high?". It's giving them a sense of power that they can make Trump react. It doesn't matter why, just the fact that he does.

    But go ahead, kill trade and your economy along with it, Donald. Trump's even antagonizing South Korea, calling them appeasers and threatening to kill the trade agreement between South Korea and the US.

    I would take his trade threats, especially against China, a bit more seriously. I realize they probably arose out a sense of exasperation by Trump, but really China doesn't want to do much about North Korea as those missiles are not pointed their way. China just wants things to calm down a bit. Trade threats are a way of the US getting a message across to the Chinese - you need to do more.

    It might succeed, the Chinese are also getting exasperated by the little dictator in North Korea, who they see as destabilizing the region with his threats and actions. For the Chinese, totally cutting off trade with North Korea will not hurt them much economically, but trying to get rid of the little dictator might be destabilizing too so they are hesitant to ruin the North Korean economy.

    Really, there are no good or easy choices here, otherwise this problem would have been resolved years ago.

    The US fiscal year runs from October to September. Trump hasn't passed a budget. What you're seeing as a bump is based on the feeling that he'll do something that the business community will like, not on any concrete action he's taken.

    Notice how it flattens out once he's in office and the feces throwing monkey stage of his administration actually starts. BTW, it helps your graph if you actually label both axis.

    Massive boom. yeah that's what he's heading to. What red tape has he rolled back exactly? Seeing as your "trump Bump" shows the time from the election to his inaguration, it's amazing that he was abl;e to eliminate all that red tape before he was actually sworn in, let alone afterwards.

    Klarman declined a request for comment.

    In a letter to investors in his hedge fund in February, Klarman raised serious concerns about Trump. “The erratic tendencies and overconfidence in his own wisdom and judgment that Donald Trump has demonstrated to date are inconsistent with strong leadership and sound decision-making,” he said, according to a New York Times report. “If things go wrong, we could find ourselves at the beginning of a lengthy decline in dollar hegemony, a rapid rise in interest rates and inflation, and global angst.”

    Perhaps that’s why a private letter he wrote to his investors a little over two weeks ago about investing during the age of President Trump — and offering his thoughts on the current state of the hedge fund industry — has quietly become the most sought-after reading material on Wall Street.

    He is Seth A. Klarman, the 59-year-old value investor who runs Baupost Group, which manages some $30 billion.

    In his letter, Mr. Klarman sets forth a countervailing view to the euphoria that has buoyed the stock market since Mr. Trump took office, describing “perilously high valuations.”

    “Exuberant investors have focused on the potential benefits of stimulative tax cuts, while mostly ignoring the risks from America-first protectionism and the erection of new trade barriers,” he wrote.

    “President Trump may be able to temporarily hold off the sweep of automation and globalization by cajoling companies to keep jobs at home, but bolstering inefficient and uncompetitive enterprises is likely to only temporarily stave off market forces,” he continued. “While they might be popular, the reason the U.S. long ago abandoned protectionist trade policies is because ...

    Yeah, he's a master deal maker. Carrier butters him up, gets millions for automation, cuts 600 of the 800 jobs that Trump claimed he'd saved. He's the best deal maker the world has ever seen.

    And if he follows through with his threat about cutting off countries that trade with North Korea, the Americans won't even be able to buy the equipment made in Mexico.

    REMEMBER THE CARRIER JOBS TRUMP 'SAVED'? COMPANY ANNOUNCES 600 LAYOFFS BEFORE CHRISTMAS

    A plant where jobs were purportedly saved by Donald Trump ahead of his inauguration is set to make at least 600 staff cuts, many before Christmas.


    Carrier had opted in December 2016 not to move a number of jobs to Mexico from its Indianapolis furnace factory, following a visit to the plant by Trump. The president claimed he had convinced Carrier to retain 1,100 jobs in Indianapolis rather than outsourcing them in Mexico. And of those 1,100 jobs Trump spoke of, 300 had reportedly never been threatened with a move to Mexico—meaning a total of 800 jobs had been saved.


    But the company has since announced that at least 600 employees at the factory will still be laid off, with the final 290 job cuts coming just ahead of Christmas.

    In a report, the Trump administration said it had withdrawn 469 planned actions that had been part of the Obama administration’s regulatory agenda published last fall. Officials also reconsidered 391 active regulatory proceedings by reclassifying them as long-term or inactive “allowing for further careful review,” the White House said.

    The steps to eliminate regulations makes good on a much-repeated Trump campaign promise to promote business-friendly policies. Investors have anticipated the action, helping to push share prices higher on hopes that fewer regulations will boost business growth and lead to higher corporate profits.

    Ten days before Hurricane Harvey descended upon Texas on Friday, wreaking havoc and causing widespread flooding, President Donald Trump signed an executive order revoking a set of regulations that would have made federally funded infrastructure less vulnerable to flooding.


    The Obama-era rules, which had not yet gone into effect, would have required the federal government to take into account the risk of flooding and sea-level rise as a result of climate change when constructing new infrastructure and rebuilding after disasters.

    Trump is shoring up his base.

    Trump’s Signals to White Supremacists Aren’t Dog Whistles. They’re Flares.
    From Charlottesville to DACA, he’s following a pattern that we ignore at our peril.

    “They may not be ready for the Ku Klux Klan yet, but as anti-white hatred escalates, they will.”


    That was Rachel Pendergraft, a spokeswoman for the political arm of the Ku Klux Klan (yes, this exists), talking last year about the way the Trump campaign was helping racist and white supremacist groups reach a growing audience. Mother Jones interviewed her as part of a big investigation, which found that these extremists were seeing Trump as legitimizing their once-hidden views.


    Hearing people like Pendergraft talking this way—taking off the hood, as it were—was shocking enough. But here’s what really stunned us in reporting out that story: Not only were extremists excited by Trump’s campaign. Not only were they using it to recruit on a scale they hadn’t imagined before. They felt that the campaign was signaling to them actively and deliberately—and the more we dug, the more we realized they were right.

    A U.S. appeals court on Thursday rejected the Trump administration’s effort to temporarily bar most refugees from entering the country, ruling that those who have relationships with a resettlement agency should be exempt from an executive order banning refugees.


    A three-judge 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals panel also ruled that grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins of legal U.S. residents should be exempted from President Donald Trump’s order, which banned travelers from six Muslim-majority countries.


    The ruling is the latest legal blow to the President’s sweeping executive order barring travelers from Iran, Syria, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and Yemen for 90 days, which the Republican president said was necessary for national security.

    Influential lawyer who inspired Trump’s Muslim ban claims ‘whites are genetically superior’ to people of color

    A proponent of the right-wing Israeli settlement movement, Yerushalmi has been condemned by the Anti-Defamation League for his bigoted views about Muslims as well as black people, immigrants and women. He’s argued that white people are “genetically superior” to black people, and provocatively stated that “there is a reason the founding fathers did not give women or black slaves the right to vote.”


    His blatant bigotry appears not to be a liability to the Republicans who embrace his ideology and use his legal rhetoric to propose and pass anti-Sharia law bills. He’s senior counsel of the American Freedom Law Center, a right-wing legal group that represented “national security experts” in a Supreme Court brief in defense of Trump’s Muslim ban. The AFLC also represents the Center for Security Policy, a conservative think tank that Trump cited in his initial calls for a “Muslim ban” while on the campaign trail in 2015.

    many people who voted for trump are not racist, did not vote for him with racist motivations. They voted, naively, I think, for protectionist economic policies they don't fully understand, or simply because they always vote republican. They voted thinking that stupid wall ideas would prove impractical an wouldn't happen.

    i'm not even convinced that trump himself is racist, beyond that he treats everyone who is not himself like dirt, and that he cares only that the people who like him continue to like him.

    Guilt by association exists.

    To pretend it does not is scarcely more useful than to harrumph about how it should not.

    And to prevent guilt by association, don't associate.

    Thing is, no one here but you has made that association, and only simple minds - or those poisoned by the kind of rhetoric that requires that those who are not partisans must be enemies - will make it.

    The esteem of such people is not something to be valued.
    There can only be one.

    There is no rhetoric in what I've said, just commentary on how the world works.

    I'll let you judge the simplicity of your mind by yourself.

    Study: Trump fans are much angrier about housing assistance when they see an image of a black man

    There's a nice little citizenship scam running in Trump properties and he doesn't seem to care. Or does nobody notice that two people check in and three people check out and they just happen to be Russians. Totally coincidentally I'm sure.


    Wealthy Russian ‘birth tourists’ are flocking to Trump hotels so newborns can have dual citizenship


    “SVM-MED, a Miami birth-tourism company that also boasts outposts in Moscow and Kiev, offers three tiers of packages to its clients, with the top two advertising lodging in Trump Towers,” The Beast reported. “The most expensive package costs $84,700 for a Trump Tower II apartment with a gold-tiled bathtub and chauffeured Cadillac Escalade or Mercedes Benz.”


    Not unlike those Trump wants to keep out with his border wall, the Russians just want a better life for their children.


    “These families have no plans to work in the U.S. or pay U.S. taxes as their child grows. Rather, U.S. citizenship is an extra security blanket that the wealthy give themselves after months-long vacations on Miami’s beaches,” The Beast explained. “It also gives their kids a shot at financial aid at U.S. schools and easier access to jobs in the U.S. After the child turns 21, he or she can also apply for family reunification, to get her parents and non-citizen siblings green cards to come to the U.S.”


    “And also, the name Melania has become very popular,” a company owner told The Beast.

    After all, it's all a hoax by the Chinese, right?

    More "good people on both sides", just down in Idaho. But the President would have us believe that those people speaking out against this are just as much to blame.

    The small community of Sandpoint — nestled in the northern tip of Idaho with a picture postcard story about its “astounding beauty and world-class recreational opportunities” — is having a recurring problem with hate literature.

    The most-recent batch of hate flyers, Bridges said, “urge us to rise up against members of our own community — [those] of African American descent, of Latino descent, against those who are followers of Judaism and followers of Islam.”


    “They urge us to accept Nazi ideals and turn on each other because of the color of our skins, our ethnic origin or the way we choose to worship,” the human rights leader said. “We are here to say, very loud and clear, that this is not who we are.”


    She later added: “We want the community to know that the messages on these flyers are dangerous.”

    Meanwhile, the son of the Israeli Prime Minister is being hailed by actual Nazis for his posting the other day. The Netanyahus are family friends of Jared Kushner. Amazing the things people will do to advance their political agenda, isn't it?

    Benjamin Netanyahu’s son posts anti-Semitic meme on Facebook, gets cheers from white supremacists

    The son of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu mortified the country’s political leaders — and won the approval of white supremacists — when he posted an anti-Semitic cartoon on Facebook Sunday.


    Yair Netanyahu, 26, appeared to post the meme as a sarcastic defense against criticism of his father’s leadership in the Jewish holy land.


    The crude cartoon showed billionaire activist George Soros dangling planet Earth in front of a giant lizard figure, which is a common internet symbol for mysterious figures who run the world from afar. The lizard, in turn, dangles an illuminati symbol over a stereotypical drawing of a conniving Jewish man.

    -----
    Former Ku Klux Klan grand wizard David Duke approvingly tweeted about the post.


    “Netanyahu's son posts a meme suggesting (((Soros))) is controlling the world: ‘Meme rife with anti-Semitic themes,’” Duke wrote, using a three-parenthesis symbol that white supremacists use online to single out Jews.


    In another tweet, Duke added, “Welcome to the club, Yair — absolutely amazing, wow, just wow.”

    You got dig pretty deep to find this stuff. Why do you bring attention to what these inconsequential fringe hate groups support?
