Jeanine Pirro on Fox Nation says that the real racists are asylum-seekers: "Don't give me this racism nonsense. We fought a civil war to make sure that we put an end to the stain of racism and slavery in our nation. We're not racist." http://mm4a.org/4YP

 A very nervy and myopic comment from a woman who descends from Lebanese immigrants.

 Is this the same filthy lie that caused the death of all of those innocent Jewish people in the Pittsburgh synagogue?

Sometimes lying conspiracies have real-time tragic consequences.

Corporate greed is right, they might lose a little in PROFITS but the people running GM might not be able to get that Olympic size swimming pool.  Suck it up and stay here!  Greed is why they have busted the Unions and sent our jobs to China so corporations wouldn't have to pay a livable wage.  If we had a steel industry like in the past, we wouldn't have to import! :angry:

 Laissez-faire capitalism is based on Greed, materialism and Sky High profits.

trump's corporate tax break has trickled down to the corporate boardroom and to some upscale stockholders.

 The only hope the American workers ever had were our labor unions, which for the most part have been promoted by the Democratic party and which for the most part have been attacked and virtually destroyed by the Republican Party.

 It was only those left-wing supported unions that gave working class Americans a chance to actually have middle class incomes without having a college education.

The Republicans are the union Busters in the United States of America.

 In Charlottesville there were not good people on both sides-- on one side there was a murderer.

White supremacy breeds hatred, division and violence.

People who promote racism, bigotry and misogyny are irresponsible and want to see others hurt.

That's Un- American.

John Kelly disparaged Congresswoman Frederica Wilson, lied about her, refused to apologize; defended wife abuser Robert Porter; called Robert E Lee honorable and said the Civil War was due to lack of compromise; supported detaining babies at border. He enabled and supported Trump.

Whatever one thinks of Kelly's "management" of Trump and his rank in the "performance of chiefs of staff" debate, his blatant and unabashed racism, sexism, and brutality towards immigrants puts him squarely into the "worst human being to be chief of staff" conversation.

Despite all the media hype,

This 4-star general turned out to be just another Empty Barrel.

trump has repeatedly harassed 4 black female reporters Who cover the White House for top media Outlets-- just as he has repeatedly harassed Congresswoman Maxine Waters in making crude remarks about their lack of intelligence and lack of ability.

trump shows a general lack of respect for black professional women as human beings because he's a racist.

On Ingraham's Fox News show, Ann Coulter describes her version of the Dem party

"I mean you have the Muslims and the Jews and the various exotic sexual groups and the black church ladies with the college queers ... you must hate white men. It's the one thing they have in common"

Vile racism openly promoted on Fox News.

Again, why?

They don’t need this.

 All these groups that Coulter references are Americans. That's the one thing they all have in common.

There's nothing exotic or strange or bad about any of them.

My question to her is why does she hate these various American groups of American people- Jews, Muslims and black church ladies for example would give us two racist comments right there having to do with ethnicity and religion. And then she adds on blatant homophobia.

 

However , The trump base that she's appealing to are just the kind of people who have those opinions.

 

So with her comments, You can conclude that there's nobody but a bunch of racist bigoted homophobs left in that trump Base  and  people like her  and Laura Ingraham  at Fox have to continue to cultivate those people.

 

And Coulter wonders why people don't invite her to the "A" parties anymore or why they ignore her at those posh, expensive restaurants.

The woman in Summerville S.C. who told a black kid in June that he had to leave the community pool because he did not belong has plead guilty and been sentenced.  She was charged with physically and verbally abusing the boy, pushing a responding police officer against a wall and biting another officer with enough force to break the skin.

No jail time and a $1,000 fine.  Let's hope the parents bring a lawsuit that will actually punish her.

Trump is doing fabulous things for black and poor Americans. No wonder that his popularity just keeps increasing, poll after poll.

Jump to 17:20 of this video to see a report on one of the beautiful Trump works that benefit such persons. The fake news never tells you anything about these good things.

Really @Prada?! The upscale fashion brand's New York City SOHO location features several items (and displays) of Blackface characters. The brand apologized but the items are still in the store AND on the company website 😡

Who at Prada thought this was a good idea?

It looks just like a nineteenth-century popular item that belongs in a museum.

Russian Trolls and the Trump Campaign Both Tried to Depress Black Turnout

"....Trump enacted a crude version of this from the stump, attacking Clinton and Democrats for their treatment of black voters, but making only peremptory, sloppy attempts at outreach (“What the hell do you have to lose?”), while continually treating minorities as an other. Meanwhile, his campaign was conducting a more elaborate version electronically, as Businessweek reported in late October 2016:

Instead of expanding the electorate, [the campaign chairman Steve] Bannon and his team are trying to shrink it. “We have three major voter suppression operations under way,” says a senior official.

They’re aimed at three groups Clinton needs to win overwhelmingly: idealistic white liberals, young women, and African Americans.

..... the congruency of the Trump and Russian efforts is notable, even in the absence of any coordination, because the president continues to deny—contra most members of his own administration—that the Russians even intervened in the 2016 election at all, much less to aid him. His denials are incredible, in the literal sense of the word, but the new evidence of how closely Russian tactics mirrored his own makes the way Moscow tried to help elect Trump even clearer.

...The help could have had a powerful influence on the election results, too. New Knowledge concludes that Russian operations were more successful in penetrating the black community than any other group that was targeted. And prior analyses have found that declining black turnout in key states that Trump narrowly won, such as Michigan, Wisconsin, and Pennsylvania, could have made the difference. Clinton would likely have struggled with black voters even without the IRA and the Trump campaign helping to depress turnout, but it turns out those memes weren’t nearly as childish, or as low-tech, as they seemed. "

 Now we know why trump really fears black Americans.

NYT: "The voter suppression effort was focused particularly

on Sanders supporters and African-Americans,

urging them to shun Mrs. Clinton in the general election

and either vote for Ms. Stein or stay home."

:o

 

 Black Americans turned out to be a lot smarter than the Russians thought they were, or I should say what Trump told them that he thought they were.
