Inspection- Dear Never Trumpers


Dear Never Trumpers,

Inspection

by Ken Carman

 I think you and the left might agree on one thing, other than “never.” Trump is right: our country has an infestation, but it’s not immigrants. It’s the worst appointments ever, it’s Trump worshipers attending Hitler-like rallies, even wearing shirts asking for his holy touch to lady’s private parts, it’s former Republican critics who now goosestep in time to idiotic barfed up talk points. It’s like they’re part of that alternate, opposite Trek universe where even the tribbles are vicious and evil, and multiplying way too fast.
 Recently I read and wrote about Never Trumper Rick Wilson’s book Everything Trump Touches Dies. Then, listening to Morning Joe, when? Oh, that’s right MORNING! …I realized Never Trumpers are a constituency that may be in for a bigger shock than even the left the morning after the 2020 election.
 I beg whatever God, or gods, there may be: prove me wrong. PLEASE. Read more

Trump’s State-by-State Approval Ratings Should Scare the MAGA Out of Him


here has been a lot of discussion in political circles about Donald Trump’s job-approval ratings, what they portend, and Trump’s Electoral College strategy for 2020, which doesn’t necessarily require a popular-vote plurality. But in the end, of course, the conjunction of the Electoral College with Trump’s state-by-state popularity is where the deal will go down.

The online polling firm Civiqs has published a new set of state-by-state job-approval ratings for Trump as of August 11, and it shows how the president’s overall standing (a 43 percent approval rating nationally, which happens to match the current RealClearPolitics polling average) might translate into electorate votes. It’s not a pretty picture for the president, to put it mildly.

The FBI Could Fight Far-Right Violence if They Wanted To


…recent reporting… revealed the active participation of police officers in white supremacist groups and racist social media activity by a small but significant number of police officers and border patrol officials makes clear that overt and organized racism continues to fester within agencies sworn to protect the public safety as well. The FBI has repeatedly warned its agents about white supremacist infiltration of law enforcement, urging caution about sharing sensitive intelligence about domestic terrorism cases. But it has taken few concrete actions to protect communities of color from these racist officers. Given this disturbing reality, giving law enforcement greater domestic terrorism powers may not be the safest or most effective solution.

So what is Congress to do?

Shove It, Media: Bernie is Right


ainstream journalists are having a ridiculous hissy fit over Sen. Bernie Sanders’ suggestion that there may be a connection between the owner of a news outlet and the content or biases of that outlet’s coverage.

If Sanders had suggested that Rupert Murdoch’s ownership of Fox News impacts its coverage, few would argue with him.  But Sanders referred to Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos’ ownership of the Washington Post — a corporate centrist outlet. And the senator, an Amazon critic, complained that the newspaper “doesn’t write particularly good articles about me.”

Immediately, the Post’s top editor denounced Sanders’ “conspiracy theory” – claiming his newsroom operates “with full independence.” A Post columnist tweeted that she’d never “heard a hint of Jeff Bezos interfering.”

Are they deluding themselves? Or sincerely clueless?

Denmark Offers to Buy US


Maybe he’d trade it for a truck? He “loves trucks.”-OEN

 

fter rebuffing Donald J. Trump’s hypothetical proposal to purchase Greenland, the government of Denmark has announced that it would be interested in buying the United States instead.

“As we have stated, Greenland is not for sale,” a spokesperson for the Danish government said on Friday. “We have noted, however, that during the Trump regime, pretty much everything in the United States, including its government, has most definitely been for sale.”
