Facts Fiction and Don Lemon


CNN anchor Don Lemon on a Wednesday evening segment of CNN Live.

Perhaps there would be less outrage if the story was told by Wolf Blitzer or Jake Tapper.

There are many white men who are OUTRAGED!!!   Here you have a black man stirring the racist pot.    IF a white man said something about a Black man, they’d lose their jobs.    Megan Kelly lost her job over “Blackface’ so here we have a black man calling white men terrorist, he should lose his job is only fair!

There are white men in this rapidly changing world who believe that they are under attack.  It had gone too far and it far more difficult to be a white man in America and this morning advertisers and CNN will  demand that Don Lemon lose his job.

THE OUTRAGE

In the course of a week, 14 bombs were mailed to prominent Democrats.  On Wednesday, a white man attempted to enter a black church in Jeffersontown, Kentucky. Fifteen minutes later, he drove to near by Kroger Supermarket and killed two black people.  As the gunman passed a white shopper in the parking lot he said, I won’t shoot you. Whites don’t shoot whites.”   Saturday, a white man entered a synagogue and killed 11 worshipers and wounded six others including four Police Officers.

Cnn’s Don Lemon said Trump would have people believe immigrants are to be feared, but statistics reveal the biggest threats are home-grown.   He went on to say, we have to stop demonizing people and realize that the biggest terror threat in this country is white men, most of them radicalized to the right, and we have to start doing something about them. So ,have to start doing something about them. There is no travel ban on them. There is no ban — you know, they had the Muslim ban. There is no white-guy ban. So what do we do about that?”

“the biggest terror threat in this country is white men.”

This is what some people heard!   Other’s heard he called for a “white guy ban”               Fox news said Lemon was ranting!   Others called him a racist!

You decide, Listen. 

There are many in this country who supported the Presidents ban on Muslims and individuals from the middle east based on a unsupported belief that, Muslims hate Americans and want to destroy America.    The facts are white men are the principle source of terrorism in the United States and no one is proposing a ban on “white men” this is what I believe Mr Lemon meant.

When its not Fake News

Since 9/11 attacks in 2001, far-right violent extremists have killed 106 people in 62 attacks in the United States, while radical Islamist violent extremists have killed 119 people in 23 attacks.

From  2008 to 2016, there were almost twice as many terrorist incidents carried out on U.S. soil by right-wing extremists — many of whom are white — than by Islamist extremists.  It showed there were 115 incidents involving right-wing extremists and that those that ended in death were more deadly than incidents carried out by other groups.

https://www.revealnews.org/article/home-is-where-the-hate-is/

An analysis of the Global Terrorism Database by researchers at the University of Maryland published in 2017 shows a “sharp increase”in the share of attacks by right-wing extremists, from 6% in the 2000s to 35% in the 2010s. The share of attacks by religious extremists also increased, from 9% to 53% between the two decades.

White supremacists in the United States killed more than twice as many people in 2017 as they did the year before, and were responsible for far more murders than domestic Islamic extremists, helping make 2017 the fifth deadliest year on record for extremist violence in America, a new report states.

Politics of Fear

For decades,some members of the GOP have demonized immigrants from Mexico. They were accused of  straining our resources and crossing the border to have babies and to get on welfare.

Presidential Candidate Donald Trump took it further, he said the people coming from Mexico were bringing drugs, bringing crime and-they’re rapist.   There isn’t any subjective data that supports any of these claims.

A point of reference for some against Mexican immigration is the murder of Arizona Rancher Rob Krentz in 2010.   Krentz’s property is near the Mexican border. The Krentz family was accustomed to undocumented migrants crossing their 35,000 acres.  Because of this, many assumed he was killed by one of those undocumented migrants. His widow was convinced his was killed by an illegal immigrant. After an extensive search, no one has been linked to his murder.  Today, many are convinced he was killed by a Mexican national.

Less than a year after the Death of Mr Krentz.  Arizona passed a law requiring anyone suspected of being in US illegally to produce papers to the police.

 

Race Baiting 2018 (Donald Trump’s Evil Caravan)

Before I talk about our president current attempt to inject white fear in the midterms, I want to look back a few years.

But first thing’s first! What is “Race Bating?:    The unfair use of statements about race to try to influence the actions or attitudes of a particular group of people

A look Back to 1986

In 1986, a convicted felon named Willie Horton — who was serving a life sentence for murder — was released from a Massachusetts prison on a weekend furlough program, during which time he escaped and raped a woman. Then-governor Michael Dukakis had supported the prison furlough program, and when he ran for President in 1988, his opponent, George H. W. Bush, used that to his advantage. The “Revolving Door” ad never mentions Horton by name, but the connection was clear and the ad received considerable news coverage.

Bush Played on the fears of whites who were terrified of blacks.

2018, President Trump,  has told his base a Caravan is coming, filled with thugs, bad people, including people from the middle east.   He has a few days to convince his base these horrific people filled with diseases  (so says Fox News) will be here at any moment.  In a world where facts don’t matter.  These terrible people are walking and they only have 800 miles to reach our borders.  Tuesday, if you believe the president. Bringing lawless people who will kill the men and rape the women. (a small exaggeration)

The footage is several years old and his story about Democrats allowing illegals in is patently false.  Donald Trump is doubling down on his attack on brown skinned people using fear to get them to the ballot box.

Luis Bracamontes was first deported to his native Mexico in 1997, during the Clinton administration, after he was busted selling drugs. But, according to U.S. Immigration officials, Bracamontes managed return to the United States by 2001, when he was deported a second time for being in the country illegally. That was during the first year of the Bush administration.

Bracamontes was back in America again by 2002. He married a U.S. citizen and remained in the country even as the Bush administration deported people at a record rate, topped only by the Obama administration.

When Bracamontes shot and killed the two Sacramento county deputies in 2014, he had been deported once under a Democratic administration and once under a Republican administration. He had been back in the United States for at least six years during the Bush administration and five years under the Obama administration.  He is currently on death row in San Quentin.

It’s 2018

Perhaps, some white men would have been more comfortable with CNN’s Jake Tapper or  Wolf Blitzer talking about this subject.   One would think, in 2018 we are beyond this. Apparently not.

By the reaction,s only black people should talk about black on black crime in cities like Chicago or Detroit.  Or Hispanics in El Paso or Albuquerque.     Don Lemon ins’t racist, he didn’t attack white men, he talked about the news and the double standard.

I can’t remember a time when a white reporter was dismissed after reading statics about black people or any other persons of color.     I can remember when a reporter or personality was dismissed after saying  spic, called black women nappy headed hoes, fag and other disparaging words or terms on air.   Blackface, hasn’t been acceptable since the 1930’s neither are insulting ethnic impersonations.

 It’s 2018, come on America, come on

Some last minute red meat racism for the base


Midterm Madness courtesy of The Prez!

“Pre-Fab Manufactured Fear”

 

Any day now, the Prez is going to send over FIVE THOUSAND TROOPS to protect our borders from thousands of menacing Latinos who are several hundred miles away.

Did I mention most are walking? Which means they won’t be here until EASTER.

    Because not only are they coming they are coming with diseases. Some nice folks at Fox News says some members of the Caravan are bringing Small Pox others have Leprosy.   Oh Wow!

There is nothing like a little fear and racism to motivate some of the base. Particularly those who don’t realize Small Pox was eradicated in the 70’s.

For some,on the right,this is GUARANTEED grade AA red meat.  Good,possibly misguided people who will vote because while they don’t know what Leprosy is,they know they don’t want it.

Meanwhile at the border. It will be, sports, crushing boredom, videos and endless Uno games until these evil people appear at our borders. I forgot to mention there are  middle easterners that he is convinced who are hidden in the caravan, who are hell bent to blow up something.

As we wait. The Prez wants to change the fourteenth amendment. To prevent those born on our pristine soil from automatically becoming citizens. This will appeal to his limited base. Who believe Immigrants ( code word Mexicans) is the problem with this country. They don’t speak American and come here to have babies to get on welfare!

Today, he will tell his base he will get it done by Executive order. Which is completely false. Like his proposed NEW STYLE tax cut for the middle class, both will evaporate after next week’s mid terms.

Finally, in a week where Donald Trump wants to convince his base he’s not a racist.

He thought he’d call the Black Florida Gubernatorial candidate, Andrew Gillum “A Stone Cold Thief”

Can’t make this stuff up.

As for real proof?

Fake news, fake news, fake news.

Love in Pennsylvania?

President Trump loves the road.  If he could just run his administration out of a Luxury Coach, life would be swell.  He could cuss his staff out over the phone, no sour faces.  He could tour states like Montana and Kentucky where they love him   No rules, no you need to say…….  No you have too’s……. No boring teleprompters.  Just entertaining his base.  Being, High school inappropriate, irrelevant.  Working the crowd, ” Lock her up”

At a rally on Saturday, in an airport hanger in Murphysboro, Illionis a small town  (population 8000) over 300 miles from Chicago.  He was a bit subdued.   A few hours to the east, a City and a nation was grieving

The president had told reporters to expect a more muted rally performance.

For the first time, Trump didn’t break out his usual,  “Lock her Up” (a crowd favorite )  His performance WAS muted.   He went after Elizabeth Warren, but it was a mild attack, in which he conceded he couldn’t use his trademark moniker for her since she took an ancestry test. “No, I can’t use ‘Pocahontas’ anymore,”

This was difficult for him.  He knows his audience, this is were he gets the love.  They love the attacks, the insults.  But this night, the handlers said, we need you to be respectful, so bring it down and we mean it!!!

 Remember this date, October 27, 2018

After 10 minutes he told the excited crowd.  “If you don’t mind, I’m going to tone it down just a little bit,” “Is that OK?”   The crowd responded NO!!!

 “I had a feeling you might say that.”, said the President with a small smile.

“Paris is Burning”

The guys who aren’t any fun has told The President he has to go to Paris, or Pittsburgh.  The midterms are a week away, his poll numbers are crashing and could pull the party down.    Unlike, Montana, Kentucky, and Murphysboro there will be fewer people in red hats.   For nearly two years, Trump has avoided blue areas like Pittsburgh, in fact he has avoided most of America.

More than 44,000 people have signed an open letter from progressive Jewish leaders saying President Trump is not welcome in Pittsburgh until he denounces white nationalism.

He isn’t going to denounce white nationalism, after declaring himself a nationalist.  Throughout the day, moments before he addresses the Tragedy in Pittsburgh, his team is looking for a response that they hope will get them through next Tuesday.

There is a mobilization via Social Media.  Pittsburgh is few hours drive from New York, Philadelphia, Chicago and Washington DC.  Is there Love in Pennsylvania for the President?

NAACP: Georgia votes for Democrat Stacey Abrams are being changed to Republican Brian Kemp

Georgia’s NAACP claims that votes intended for Democrat Stacey Abrams are being changed to Republican Brian Kemp

By Matthew Rozsa/Salon Com

The Georgia NAACP is filing a complaint claiming that votes for Democratic candidate Stacey Abrams in that state’s race for governor have been changed to Republican candidate Brian Kemp.

The NAACP’s state conference electronically filed complaints with the Georgia Secretary of State’s office (which is held by Kemp himself) claiming that votes cast for Abrams in Bartow and Dodge counties were initially registered to Kemp, according to USA Today. As of Tuesday, the Georgia NAACP also had plans to file additional complaints in Henry and Cobb counties, likewise claiming that votes intended for Abrams had initially been changed to Kemp. Eight voters in total are alleging that they noticed their votes had been changed.

“We’ve experienced this before. They ended up taking these old dilapidated machines out of service. The ones giving the problems. They should have been replaced about 10 years ago,” Phyllis Blake, president of the Georgia NAACP, told USA Today. The paper included this troubling story from a Georgia voter named Pamela Grimes:

Grimes said she went to a polling site in Bartow County Thursday and tried to select Abrams, but the machine marked the box for Kemp. Grimes said she tried several times to clear the selection before it allowed her to vote for Abrams.

“I was not going to leave until everything was the way I wanted it,’’ recalled Grimes, adding she also paid close attention to other selections. “If I had not been focused, my vote would have went for him.”

Grimes said she has since warned other voters. “I’ve been telling people when you vote to pay attention,’’ she said.

As Salon reported earlier this month, Georgia has experienced considerable controversy for purging voters from its rolls. Journalist Greg Palast learned that 1 in 10 Georgia voters were removed from the rolls at some point in 2017, telling Salon that “I started this investigation for Al Jazeera and Rolling Stone in 2014. And Kemp has been stonewalling my requests for his purge lists and the reasons for them. And I finally got the list — not all the material we’ve asked for, and I should say that we sent a 90-day notice of a federal lawsuit if he didn’t provide these — and within hours of the deadline we got the list of the purged voters.”

He added that under Kemp the Georgia State Department “has identified people as having moved out of state, moved out of the congressional district, they should either be removed or forced to reregister. In fact, they haven’t the state, they haven’t left the congressional district. We found one woman who moved from one side of her building to the other.”

Abrams drew attention to accusations that Kemp has made it more difficult for nonwhites to vote during her debate with Kemp on Tuesday night, according to The New York Times. “Under Secretary Kemp, more people have lost the right to vote in the state of Georgia. They’ve been purged, they’ve been suppressed and they’ve been scared,” Abrams said during the debate.

The Wrong Side of Women


Image result for clarence thomas hearings

Nearly 27 years ago, Senators Chuck Grassley, Orrin Hatch, Mitch McConnell and Richard Shelby were on the Judiciary committee.

Eighty five year old ,Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley (Iowa) said Wednesday that he doesn’t doubt Christine Blasey Ford believes she was assaulted by Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh in high school.   “I don’t doubt that she believes what she says, and in fact, I have a responsibility to give deference to that, at least until I hear it, and to make a determination afterwards if it is possible to make a determination,”  “Nothing the F.B.I. or any other investigator does would have any bearing on what Dr. Ford tells the committee, so there is no reason for any further delay,” “The FBI does not make a credibility assessment of any information it receives with respect to a nominee,” .

In 1991, Senator Grassley discussed the need for the FBI to investigate allegations made by Anita Hill.  He said it was the right thing to do!

A few days ago, 84 year old Utah Senator Orrin Hatch said, Christine Blasey Ford may be “mixed up about the alleged incident.  He went on to say, he know’s the Judge (Kavanaugh) very, very well , is an honest man, this didn’t happen!    There is “some question” whether Ford is mixed up and confusing Kavanaugh  with someone else.

 October 1991: Senator Hatch said “There’s no question in my mind Anita Hill was coached by special interests groups”  “Her story’s too contrived. It’s so slick it doesn’t compute.  “”He said key signs of that include two charges she made for the first time  which research by Republicans showed may have been borrowed from a Kansas sexual harassment case and the book, “The Exorcist.”  He said ,Hill’s testimony was carefully designed – with the help of Thomas’ enemies – to use racial and sexual stereotypes of black males against Thomas. “They wanted to turn whites against this man. It was a reverse Willie Horton,”

Seventy six year old, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell  focus is on the Democrat’s. He claimed they leaked these allegations “at the last minute in an irregular manner” as a delaying tactic.

Senator McConnell, voted for Clarence Thomas in 1991 , he called Thomas a winner for emerging from Hill’s unproven allegations..

Eighty four year old,Senator Richard Shelby of Alabama. Through his spokesman,  says he believes the sexual assault accusations against Supreme Court nominee Kavanaugh are serious, and wants to see the Senate Judiciary Committee get to the bottom of the claims.  Senator Shelby was one of the few Republicans who did not support Alabama Senatorial candidate Roy Moore.

In 1991, Democratic Senator Richard Shelby supported Clarence Thomas.

______________________________________________________________

Anita Hill

Christine Blasey Ford

 Thomas nomination proceeded to the Senate Judiciary Committee’s confirmation hearings. The first few days of the hearings were relatively uneventful. When asked about his stance on legal abortion, Thomas claimed that he had not formulated an opinion and the issue was dropped. After a few more days of outside testimony, it appeared as if the Senate committee would easily confirm the Thomas nomination. The committee split its vote, however–seven to seven, and the nomination went to the Senate without a clear recommendation.

When the nomination moved to the floor of the Senate, it took a sudden and dramatic turn when Anita Hill, a law professor at the University of Oklahoma, came forward with accusations that Clarence Thomas had sexually harassed her. Hill had worked for Thomas years earlier when he was head of the Equal Employment Opportunities Commission. Hill charged that Thomas harassed her with inappropriate discussion of sexual acts and pornographic films after she rebuffed his invitations to date him. A media frenzy quickly arose around Hill’s allegations and Thomas.  

Hill agreed to take a polygraph test. While senators and other authorities noted that polygraph results cannot be relied upon and are inadmissible in courts, Hill’s results did support her statements. Thomas did not take a polygraph test. He made a vehement and complete denial, saying that he was being subjected to a “high-tech lynching for uppity blacks

In early July 2018, after Judge Brett Kavanaugh was reported to be on the shortlist for the Supreme Court .  Christine Blasey Ford contacted both The Washington Post via a tip line and her Representative Anna Eshoo.  On July 20, after Kavanaugh became the nominee. Eshoo met with Ford, becoming convinced of her credibility and noting that Ford seemed “terrified” that her identity as an accuser might become public. Thereafter, Eshoo and Ford mutually decided to take the matter to Senator Dianne Feinstein , one of Ford’s Senators in California and the ranking Democrat on the Senate Judiciary Committee, which would deliberate Kavanaugh’s nomination. In a letter to Feinstein, Ford alleged that Brett Kavanaugh had sexually assaulted her when both were in high school, and stated that she expected her story to be kept confidential. In August, Ford took a polygraph test with a former FBI agent, who concluded Ford was being truthful when attesting to the accuracy of her allegations.

Owing to her confidentiality commitment to Ford, Feinstein did not raise the issue in the initial Kavanaugh confirmation proceedings. On September 12, it was reported (without naming Ford) that Feinstein was withholding a Kavanaugh-related document from fellow Judiciary Committee Democrats. Feinstein then referred Ford’s letter to the FBI, which redacted Ford’s name and forwarded the letter to the White House as an update to Kavanaugh’s background check. The White House in turn sent the letter to the full Senate Judiciary Committee.

On September 16, 2018, after media reported anonymous allegations and reporters started to track down her identity, Ford went public. She spoke to The Washington Post, alleging that Kavanaugh had sexually assaulted her in the summer of 1982 when she was 15 and he was 17. As corroboration of her account, Ford provided The Post with the polygraph as well as session notes from her therapist written in 2012. The therapist’s notes also say four boys were involved, which Ford attributed to an error by the therapist; Ford said in 2018 that four boys were at the party but only two were involved in the incident.[ Kavanaugh has categorically denied Ford’s allegations.

December 2017, Donald Trump endorses Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore Moore was running for the seat vacated by newly appointed Attorney General Jeff Sessions.    During the campaign,  Beverly Young Nelson said that, in December 1977 or January 1978 when she was 16, Moore sexually assaulted her. She said that when she fought him off, he eventually gave up, telling her, “You’re just a child, I’m the district attorney. If you tell anyone about this no one will ever believe you.” Moore denied Nelson’s accusations and that he even knew her at all. One of the women accused him of sexual assault when she was 14. Moore was 32 at the time.  Moore said all the allegations were false.   The Majority of high ranking Republicans including Mitch McConnell, Paul Ryan and Mitt Romney asked Moore to abandon his campaign.  Trump said Moore should step aside if the charges are true.  However, unlike the other Republicans. Donald Trump formally endorsed Roy Moore.

In February , White House staff secretary, Rob Porter resigned after his two former wives accused him of physical abuse when they were married to him.  Staffers knew, the accusations contributed to a delay in granting him a permanent security clearance. Porter said , the allegations are simply false,” even as details of the alleged abuse and photographs of one of his former wives with a black eye that she said he had given her were widely circulated.

Porter claims he is innocent of the allegations. “I think you also have to remember that. He said very strongly yesterday he’s innocent,”  Donald Trump

 Kavanaugh’s family: “They are hurting somebody’s life very badly. It’s very unfair, I think, Justice Kavanaugh has been treated very, very tough and his family, I think it’s a very unfair thing what’s going on,” Donald Trump

50.6 percent of the US population is women.   In 2018, 107  women hold seats in the United States Congress, comprising 20.0% of the 535 members; 23 women (23%) serve in the U.S Senate and 84 women (19.3%) serve in the U.S House of Representatives

In 2018, women are still fighting for equal pay. In the last 20 years reproductive rights have been under attack in many red states.   Health care for the poor is not available in other states.  This will not change until there are more women in office.  Until there are more women in office the government will be on the wrong side of women.

Standing by Kavanaugh


Image result for donald trump brett kavanaugh

President Trump, is sticking by his man Brett Kavanaugh for the ninth chair on the Supreme Court.   He should have chosen a women. Well not a middle school or high school teacher there could be an ugly affair with a freshman.  But other women.

Earlier today he told the press, he felt sorry for Kavanaugh to go through this. He felt bad for his family, his children.    “This is not a man who deserves this,”   

Trump is consistent, he stood by Alabama’s Roy Moore, a man some called a pedophile.  The women who came forward ,had an vendetta and were closeted democrat’s.

The current villains are the Democrat’s.   With the chief villain, being Senator Dianne Feinstein.  In a world where facts are fake news, The Washington Post (9/16/2018) reported:

In late July, she sent a letter via Eshoo’s office to Sen. Dianne Feinstein of California, the ranking Democrat on the Judiciary Committee.In the letter, which was read to The Post, Ford described the incident and said she expected her story to be kept confidential. She signed the letter as Christine Blasey, the name she uses professionally. Though Ford had contacted The Post, she declined to speak on the record for weeks as she grappled with concerns about what going public would mean for her and her family — and what she said was her duty as a citizen to tell the story.

The Republican (Trump) Party has become “no women’s land”.   The approval of Kavanaugh would have most likely been a tie, with the Vice President being the tie breaker.

The Republican party not releasing all information about Kavanaugh’s background will now comeback to haunt them.     Some of the early attacks by some Republicans on Professor Ford combined President’s words today, may fuel the anti Trump movement in November’s General Elections.

Scary Books 

If there is a hearing?  Kavanaugh and his schoolmate Mark Judge (if Judge is ordered to testify) will have some scary splaining to do.

D.C. based attorney, Seth Berenzweig received a copy of 1983 Georgetown Prep high school yearbook.  Berenzweig said he received the yearbook from a woman who did not want her name revealed. Berenzweig says she brought it forward after seeing Judge Kavanaugh’s repeated denial of engaging in inappropriate behavior with a then 15-year-old girl at a high school party.

“The question of integrity and character and fitness,” said Berenzweig. “There’s information here that appears to potentially be inconsistent with what the judge said earlier this morning.”The yearbook has pages dedicated to each graduating high school senior. Kavanaugh’s page includes references to the “Keg City Club” and “100 kegs or bust.” “[He’s] someone who apparently may have had a reputation for some heavy drinking,” said Berenzweig. Kavanaugh’s page also includes a reference to the ‘Devil’s Triangle’, one possible interpretation of which is slang for a sexual situation involving two men and a woman.  It raises questions and I think the purpose of the disclosure of this is not to attack Judge Kavanaugh, not to attack his credibility. But just to make sure the American people and the Senate Judiciary Committee have all the information available when considering this lifetime appointment,” said Berenzweig.

Mark Judge wrote the book “Wasted: Tales of a Gen X Drunk.  In it, he details his experiences of extensive drinking while attending Georgetown Preparatory School.  He talks about what he got away with and describes a school swimming in alcohol.

” Professor Ford, said the two young men were drunk”

 Judge also references a “Bart O’Kavanaugh,” who he writes vomited in someone’s car. It has not been confirmed whether this is a reference to Kavanaugh.

Nasty Ugly

This echos the hearings of Clarence Thomas and Anita Hill, the difference is, the #meetoo  movement.  An attack on Ford’s character will be viewed as hostile.  The Demo’s want an FBI investigation, which might delay the installation of the new judge.  Earlier today, the President said, the FBI shouldn’t be involved.

If others come forward it will damage Brett Kavanaugh. If there is a public hearing it will forever change the lives of  Professor Ford and Mark Judge.

The optics will further damage the Republicans, 9 billion men, two women.   The Democrats are salivating, they want a show, however the Demo’s often overplay their hand which could turn off voters in November.  Judge Kavanaugh should ask for his name to be removed.  The question is, how much are the Republicans is willing to lose for a Justice Kavanaugh?
