Trump and his aides failed to grasp the significance of holding a rally on Juneteenth, a holiday celebrated annually on June 19 that honors the end of slavery in the United States. https://

Nor did they appear to realize that Tulsa was the site of one of the country’s bloodiest outbreaks of racist violence

 This is what comes from segregating Black American history from the mainstream classes of United States of America history.

Segregation is at the very core of the United States, but the history of All Americans is part of the history of the United States.

 When the classes are segregated, the very students who need the information the most will be the very students who will not take those classes geared toward minorities.

You can only stop repeating the mistakes of the past, if you have learned about the mistakes of the past.

Trump’s violent rhetoric about Supreme Court members firing “shotgun blasts into the face” of Americans,
 
while claiming the court will abolish the 2nd Amendment,
 
is violent rhetoric clearly intended to inflame extremists and spark violence against judges.

Former Defense Secretary Robert Gates told @rachelnpr it was "a bad mistake" to push away peaceful protesters for the president to take a photo in front of St. John's Church.
 
"It's hard to disagree that this president is a divider."

The wrong direction!

Holy Walter Cronkite, Huntley& Brinkley and Edward R Murrow--

John Bolton Said that trump wanted to lock up and execute journalists.

That's the wrong direction straight into the insane asylum.

Outside Trump's Tulsa rally site, few face masks and no social distancing

“If Trump felt comfortable having it here, then I’m comfortable," said one supporter.
 
Said another, of the coronavirus risk: "If today is the day I die, today is the day I die."

Watching the news just now, the situation in Tulsa sounds like an incipient Jonestown, with the virus representing the Kool-Aid.

Let's not all sleep on the fact that Barr put out a press release saying Berman had resigned ... when in fact Berman had refused to resign

This is an attempt to get the trump family off the hook.

Another trump perversion of Justice.

So we'll see how this one turns out.

The situation with Mr. Berman is a shame. The Southern District Attorney position has been held by a number of distinguished people, since the early days. Rudolph Giuliani achieved fame in the position between 1983-1989. Although he was a bit showy, he did a good job of prosecuting white collar crime, and particularly organized crime (the "five families.") It's ironic that Trump's desire to get rid of Berman may have something to do with investigations into Giuliani!

From The New York Times, 1985: "Until a decade ago, law-enforcement tactics had been directed at individual Mafia members. More recently, the F.B.I. has concentrated on individual Mafia family leadership. Giuliani's brainstorm was to go the next step: Attack the board of directors guiding all of New York's Mafia families in loan sharking, drug trafficking, labor racketeering and contract murder. Next fall in a single trial at the Federal courthouse in Manhattan, Giuliani will prosecute the purported heads of the Genovese, Gambino, Lucchese, Colombo and Bonanno families."

The whole world is watching America’s failure

It’s remarkable to think that for all the damage President Trump had done to America’s image in the world before the beginning of this year, he could wound it even further. But has he ever.

As The Post’s Rick Noack reports, people in other countries are simply gob smacked at what a terrible job the United States is doing in controlling the novel coronavirus pandemic:

 
As coronavirus cases surge in the U.S. South and West, health experts in countries with falling case numbers are watching with a growing sense of alarm and disbelief, with many wondering why virus-stricken U.S. states continue to reopen and why the advice of scientists is often ignored.
“It really does feel like the U.S. has given up,” said Siouxsie Wiles, an infectious-diseases specialist at the University of Auckland in New Zealand — a country that has confirmed only three new cases over the last three weeks and where citizens have now largely returned to their pre-coronavirus routines.

Trump likes to say that after he was elected, respect for the United States was restored, but the truth is precisely the opposite. Even before the pandemic, Trump couldn’t have done more to degrade America’s standing than if that was his explicit goal. Not even George W. Bush, whose disastrous invasion of Iraq drew condemnation across the globe, did as much to undermine our image abroad.

Just the fact that the United States would elect such a vulgar, ignorant, corrupt buffoon was bad enough. But now our government’s incompetence is helping cause the bodies to pile up — and, it would be reasonable for other countries to worry, potentially affecting their own efforts to contain the virus. While international travel has been drastically reduced, it won’t be shut down forever. If you were watching what’s happening in the U.S. — where we have 2.2 million cases of covid-19 and almost 120,000 deaths, more than twice as much as any other country on both counts — would you be eager to welcome U.S. visitors?
