  1. Joy Reid @JoyAnnReid · 3h So now, the attorney general, Bill Barr, is attempting to pin the anarchy and infiltration, which is already documented as coming from white nationalist groups, on "left leaning" ANTIFA groups. The goal is to force the media to repeat that. What is his proof? ================================================== Jonathan Capehart @CapehartJ · 3h The Attorney General failed to acknowledge the white nationalists involved in the protests, as warned by every Minnesota official who has spoken today.
  2. Isabella Rowling @Isabellarowling · 5h Replying to @LovesTheBern I can’t confirm this man’s identity by name, or if he actually returned to the police station, but he is certainly white. Inciting violence and property destruction has been a tactic used by racist groups for decades. They’re using the same old playbook......... see: https://twitter.com/LovesTheBern/status/1266171136330444800
  3. Nancy Duncan @ndduncan59 · 5h Last night in Louisville. Protesters protected an officer separated from his squad.
  4. Joy Reid @JoyAnnReid Remarkable info coming out of this presser: Gov. Tim Walls, Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey and St. Paul Mayor Melvin Carter and now MN attorney general Keith Ellison ALL alleging outside forces, domestic and possibly foreign, have post-Tuesday infiltrated the state, and are in organized fashion setting fire to historic businesses in communities of color, and causing mayhem. Ellison cited the widely circulating video of a white man in a gas mask holding an umbrella who was caught by protestors on video breaking windows. .............Mayor Carter said EVERY person arrested last night during the protests was from out of state. The governor said it is at least 80 percent, and that they will begin releasing the names. Dept of Safety Commissioner John Harrington says they are contract-tracing arrestees: He adds that white nationalist groups are posting messages promoting going to Minneapolis to “get our loot on” and cause mayhem. He says they will investigate those using the outrage over the murder of George Floyd as a “cover” for illegal activity............. Mayor Carter says they saw mayhem starters throw incendiary devices and then run behind legit protesters and “use them as a human shield.” He says being out after curfew allows yourself to be used........... see: https://twitter.com/JoyAnnReid/status/1266741059163389952
  5. Sat., 5-30 for THE ESSENTIALS: MOIRA SHEARER......... (again, not on daily schedule...........) ** 10:30 PM (ET) Man Who Loved Redheads, The ( 1954) ** British comedy that follows the romantic escapades of a married man, who as a young boy falls eternally in love with a redhead. He never forgets her and thus pursues extramarital affairs with redheads as the years progress. Dir: Harold French Cast: Moira Shearer , John Justin , Roland Culver . BW- 86 mins, ".....well-received in the U.S., with Variety deeming it "a light and wholly enjoyable British comedy" and The New York Times describing it as "a charming lark, light as a zephyr and just as welcome." The Times review continued: "Terrence Rattigan must have drunk copiously of that mysterious nectar that inspires some playwrights to weave bright comedy out of what is often flimsy, run-of-the-mill material... [His] situations and dialogue never lack for color and his lightweight dig at dalliance is a pleasure... In essaying the roles of the 'redheads,' Moira Shearer has developed acting talents that are both surprising and refreshing. The ballerina...moves gracefully from the role of a dewy-eyed 16-year-old, to a mincing Cockney, to a temperamental but tender Russian premire danseuse and, finally, to a smart manikin." see: http://www.tcm.com/tcmdb/title/82748/Man-Who-Loved-Redheads-The/articles.html
  6. Twitter and Trump: a feud years in the making finally erupts "Twitter’s decision this week to stand up to President Donald Trump by attaching warnings to some of his many tweets has been years in the making, a culmination of American divisions playing out and being amplified across social media. It is fueled by some of the very elements that make modern American discourse so polarized, so fast-moving and — at the oddest of historical moments — so fragmented. Twitter's assumption of a stronger referee role in its approach to Trump's tweets reflects a “pretty radical change,” said Josh Pasek, an associate professor at the University of Michigan’s Institute for Social Research. “We really haven’t been at a place where social media companies were willing to take on this role.” But it also heightens the dangers of polarization............. https://apnews.com/7ad4dc97fb5da27b8abe6161e1bd8b51?utm_medium=AP&utm_campaign=SocialFlow&utm_source=Twitter

  8. Twitter and Trump: a Feud Years in the Making Finally Erupts- ".........The feud with Twitter serves as a convenient distraction for Trump from major challenges he currently faces, such as controlling the coronavirus pandemic and managing an economy hard-hit by COVID-19 restrictions. Unlike in those arenas, where researched hard numbers can mute the president's points, in the me-vs.-them battle of Trump and Twitter, his ability to make his point can be based largely on volume and bluster.......... "I just believe strongly that Facebook shouldn’t be the arbiter of truth of everything that people say online,” Mark Zuckerberg told Fox News on Thursday, a statement he frequently repeats at moments like these. Facebook has long used fact checks on its site, done by third-party news organizations such as The Associated Press. Not long afterward, Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey tweeted that Twitter will “continue to point out incorrect or disputed information about elections globally." But he added: "This does not make us an 'arbiter of truth.'” “Facebook's approach is a strategic one from a business perspective," said Dipayan Ghosh, co-director of the digital platforms and democracy project at Harvard's Kennedy School. "Twitter is thinking about democratic interests and its impact on the world.”........ “The problem in it for Facebook is (that) staying out of it is also a political position,” Myers said. “You’re on a side. There’s no way to not be on a side of this. Regardless of what they’re going to do, they’re going to be placed on a side.”........ https://www.nbcchicago.com/news/politics/president-trump/twitter-and-trump-a-feud-years-in-the-making-finally-erupts/2280393/?_osource=SocialFlowTwt_CHBrand
  9. Longer lines for rides, and no parade: Theme parks to open, but will visitors return? “The last thing you want is someone to say, 'I got coronavirus at Disney,'” one theme park enthusiast said. ......... At Universal’s Orlando parks, guests are encouraged to download an app to cut down on contacts and lines. The app will allow visitors to order food online and then return to collect their meal. Parking will be staggered for groups to avoid crowding. While Disney has not specified how many people it will allow at its Florida theme parks, the Magic Kingdom in Orlando is the world’s most visited park, attracting 20.8 million visitors in 2018, according to the Themed Entertainment Association’s most recent tally....... SeaWorld said it would be encouraging digital payments, and ticketing staff would be separated from visitors by plexiglass screens. Maps will also be electronic.

  10. stay at home order Gov. Pritzker to Sign Executive Order Ending Illinois’ Stay-at-Home Restrictions A statewide stay-at-home order went into effect for Illinois on March 21 ........ The comments came on the same day most of Illinois, excluding the city of Chicago, entered Phase Three of Pritzker's statewide reopening plan. Under Phase Three, restaurants are allowed to reopen for outdoor dining as are state parks, non-essential manufacturers and non-essential retailers. The new executive order, called the Community Recovery Order, still requires limits of groups to 10 people or fewer and mandates other mitigation practices including social distancing and wearing face coverings in public. Additionally, the governor was expected to extend the state's ban on residential evictions, moratorium on utility shut-offs and suspension on repossession of vehicles to protect people from the "financial challenges COVID-19 has brought on." While explaining the changes and touting progress made by state health officials in terms of hospitalization and positivity rates, Pritzker acknowledged that the coronavirus is "still out there, and it's still dangerous.".......... On Friday, an additional 1,622 coronavirus cases were reported in Illinois, lifting the number of cases statewide to 117,455 since the pandemic began. https://www.nbcchicago.com/news/local/pritzker-to-sign-executive-order-ending-illinois-stay-at-home-restrictions/2280229/?_osource=SocialFlowTwt_CHBrand
  11. The Hill @thehill · 1h WATCH: Trump announces US is "terminating" relationship with WHO over its coronavirus response http://hill.cm/jbtpyT1 ============================= Chris Murphy @ChrisMurphyCT · 2h If your complaint is that China has too much influence at the WHO then maybe don't hand the WHO over to China.
  12. TCM and Shudder Prove the Need for Pre-Movie Hosts in Peak TV ".........As many of the hosts, past and present, and executives of TCM and Shudder will attest to, a host becomes a familiar face for an audience to gravitate towards in what is a communal experience. Joe Bob Briggs, the host of Shudder’s “The Last Drive-In,” said the appeal of a horror host is giving audiences’ access to someone to be scared with, while TCM general manager Pola Changnon noted that hosts make watching films a more social experience. “There’s something in our DNA that says you need to watch a movie with other people. It’s a social thing. If you watch a movie on your phone, on your laptop, by yourself and it’s a great movie what happens when it’s over? You feel extremely lonely,” says Briggs. It’s the equivalent of sitting with a good friend and watching a movie. “You want to feel connected, even if it’s just sitting in your living room watching,” Changnon told IndieWire. The pre-movie host has been around in various forms since television started............
  13. Protesters set fire to Minneapolis police precinct as Trump attacks uprising on Twitter "...........Protests have also spread to other U.S. cities. In New York City, protesters defied New York’s coronavirus prohibition on public gatherings Thursday, clashing with police, while demonstrators blocked traffic in downtown Denver. A day earlier, demonstrators had taken to the streets in Los Angeles and Memphis. In Louisville, Kentucky, police confirmed that at least seven people had been shot Thursday night as protesters demanded justice for Breonna Taylor, a black woman who was fatally shot by police in her home in March. Amid the violence in Minneapolis, a man was found fatally shot Wednesday night near a pawn shop, possibly by the owner, authorities said. Fire crews responded to about 30 intentionally set blazes, and multiple fire trucks were damaged by rocks and other projectiles, the fire department said. No one was hurt by the blazes........ https://www.pbs.org/newshour/nation/protestors-set-fire-to-minneapolis-police-precinct-as-trump-attacks-uprising-on-twitter

  15. Stacey Abrams @staceyabrams · 8h Why vote? Because we get the leadership we demand. The justice we demand. We march in the streets, but we must also march on ballot boxes. They fear our participation, spending millions to silence & suppress us. They won’t see us coming, but they will hear us when we arrive.
  16. Donald J. Trump @realDonaldTrump MAIL-IN VOTING WILL LEAD TO MASSIVE FRAUD AND ABUSE. IT WILL ALSO LEAD TO THE END OF OUR GREAT REPUBLICAN PARTY. WE CAN NEVER LET THIS TRAGEDY BEFALL OUR NATION. BIG MAIL-IN VICTORY IN TEXAS COURT TODAY. CONGRATS!!! ============================================= Seth Abramson (@) @SethAbramson · 19h Kind of giving the game away when you just put right out there that the reason to oppose people voting by mail is that it hurts your political party Voter fraud was a flimsy and sheer gown to begin with but Trump has just flung it off completely to show us his whole orange glory
  17. Stacey Abrams @staceyabrams As polite sympathy turns to cynical outrage + Nixon-esque insults, and anxious protest is dismissed as mindless anarchy, we cannot let our eyes be turned away from the dead, murdered bodies that brought us here. Again. #GeorgeFloyd #AuhmadArbery #BreonaTaylor. Rage, hopelessness and a ragged, unrelieved pain on display in Minneapolis has fearsome echoes in Louisville, Brunswick and a hundred American cities. Their deaths are symptomatic of a broken system that promises justice but fails to deliver. Those entrusted with the gravest authority must be held to the highest standard of accountability. Law enforcement, district attorneys, mayors, attorneys general, judges, legislators and governors must be held responsible - and their actions will be on the ballot in November. ............ see:
