Of course he did. Back to the scene of one of most horrific white riots of the last century, on Juneteenth, a special day in the black community celebrating the Emancipation Proclamation.
I’m confident this won’t be a ‘Nixon goes to China’ moment.
With the stock markets today again remembering that the coronavirus can’t be ignored, wished, bluffed, or inepted away, Der Orange Fuehrerbunkerinspector may have a plan to shed the blood of a few more black men on camera himself, just for the market bump?
Not sure why those FOXMarkets aren’t giving him his full deserved credit for all the black Covid fatalities? . . .
RE: the stock market — I was thinking on Monday the Quants on Wall Street had finally programmed the highspeed trading systems how to pull off the classic Long Island Boiler Room "Penny Stock Pump and Dump" scheme. It didn't take them very long to pull the trigger. First one to hit the exit wins!
According to this cop, police officers are models of restraint because statistically speaking, they should be shooting many more black people than they are. And, of course, there is absolutely no such thing as systemic racism.
This bozo is the cream of the crop in Tulsa, OK, a public face of the department. Today I am happier than usual about not living in OK.
The solution, according to many, is throwing more money at a system that values and elevates sociopathic pieces of shit such as this guy. smh
Here’s the second Romanoff-Hickenlooper debate from last night. Sponsored by CBS and the Colorado Sun, this one was an hour, and so allowed for more in-depth answers.
My superficial takes: Both men look healthier, and seem to have worked on their remote presentation skills. Hick still evades questions, and shouldn’t. Romanoff has an annoying cough/laugh/snort tic, but is by far the better communicator.
How large was the audience for this debate? Three or four people?
Dave, it was a remote debate sponsored by CBSnews, carried live on their TV channel, posted on their website, and also sponsored on the Sun’s website, as well as on YouTube. There was no live audience.
Feel free to estimate the viewership of CBS in this market, plus readership of the Sun, plus random you tubers or social media users who have shared it around. Then get back to me with an estimate.
I suppose your point is that “nobody cares”. But these savvy news organizations would not waste precious air and staff time if that were true.
The ground under Trump's feet is growing increasingly shaky:
I am sure the general has been thinking about this a lot. He is to be commended for speaking up. I am sensing fewer and fewer people in Washington DC who are afraid of the OD. The leadership of Seattle and Washington state don’t seem to be daunted by le Enfant Orange, at all.
I have noticed, in all my years of watching politics, an unfailing phenomenon. When people like Donald T***p, who has systematically and repeatedly shit on people his entire life, finally start to get their comeuppance, those people, upon whom he has shitted, will rush to kick him when he goes down.
His “subjects” are telling him no…and he doesn’t like it. It is just going to get uglier and uglier.
I don't recall if I posted this here on Pols. Apologies if I did, but it's worth a repeat. Found it on Yahoo News on April 14, about Trump……..
"(He's a) cranky, old, snake-bit, con man from New York City. He rode in on the perfect economy, falling budget deficits, rising employment, and a great outlook. And, whammo, the wheels came off. This is Trump's M.O. He's been snake-bit for decades with terrible business deals, even worse marriage decisions, and a trail of pathological lies and lawsuits that will send him to his grave broke, alone, and reviled."
It is a great – and accurate – quote. His multiple mental illnesses and disorders simply do not allow him to succeed. He will never understand he is ill, and he will never seek treatment for his maladies. And on top of that, he is a mean, hateful person. As a result we all suffer.
And we should not forget, this isn't so much Trump's re-election campaign as it is his "Stay out of Jail" plan.
The day he steps out of office, the states and a newly fumigated DOJ will be pursuing criminal and civil charges against him, his family and more than a few of his collaborators.
^^^ this x100 ^^^
You think he will bail? …or try to stay? As time goes by, I don't see him getting any stronger.
If he keeps the three layers of fence outside his bunker in place until Inauguration Day maybe Vlad can borrow his Sikorsky helicopter and pluck him out? (Flynn has some experience these kinds of matters).
One of his late billionaire friends has an island that is probably unoccupied. Maybe he could go there with his kids and be king there.
Who's in line to get Epstein's private island? Too soon? Room for Barr?
I'll bet he has been there before.
If you have a Twitter account follow @CaslerNoel He shares a lot of info on the comings and goings on Epstein's island, etc.
Epstein claims to have introduced POTUS and FLOTUS…
Not a tweeterer, but I can see his stuff on You Tube. I will check him out.
I just finished the 4 part Epstein documentary on Netflix. Eye opening, disgusting and heartbreaking would be ways to describe what this man did. How this sexual predator, his sidekick and the ponzi scheme of young girls, were able to go virtually untouched for so many years, is a true testament to the power of money to hush up authorities. Former U.S. labor secretary Acosta essentially allowed Epstein to continue abusing. Corruption at the highest levels.

General Milley gave half an answer, and then only when pressured after.
The way it was taught in my time
– it's not enough to say what should not have done, you have to say what should have been done
– and you should be the one to step up without pressure
The episode was June 1.
June 2, Milley had a memo out to the command structure & DoD — stressing the oath to the Constitution. Not an indication of waiting and responding only to pressure.
Since then, there have been several stories of his pushing to argue against any use of troops, apologizing for the impression of being involved in domestic politics, taking approving positions on rewarding any national guard troops pulled out of their usual lives, and talking with many Senators and Representatives. The White House has initially blocked Milley from testifying — Pentagon liaison says "we are working on it."
He seems genuinely contrite. That, or what that seemed to be, is a place in history he doesn't want to occupy.
He blames it on a lapse in his "situational awareness". Well…that has happened to me. On the other hand…I am not Chairman of the Joint Chiefs, so…you would think he might be paying more better attention.
Now we know. All doubt has been removed:

That's hilarious. "Aunt Ifa".
And as a grandparent, I do meet several of those criteria.
A Colorado-related question: How much money could El Chapo raise to offer as a bribe to The Dumpster® for a pardon?
A billion $ USD?
Enough that the Orange Buffoon would take it on November 4th and issue the pardon?
Oh, I know what you are thinking—even Donnie Boy would not sink that low.
El Chapo is not the only one
How's that saying go? A gaff is when politicians accidentally speak the truth?
Corporate Donations To Governor’s Office ‘Raises All Sorts Of Red Flags’
A CBS4 investigation has uncovered millions of dollars in donations from corporations and private foundations to the governor’s office. The off-the-books donations date back at least 20 years. Gov. Jared Polis’ Office says he has five privately funded positions in his office, including one funded by an anonymous donor who funneled $135,000 through the Silicone Valley Foundation.
But former Gov. John Hickenlooper admits he took the public-private model to a new level, funding programs and even positions in his administration with no oversight.
Among the biggest donors was the former Anadarko Oil and Gas. The company donated $25,000 to the governor’s office in 2017, just days after a deadly explosion in Firestone was tied to a leaking underground pipeline owned by the company. Over the course of four years, it gave the governor’s office more than $330,000, money for which there is little accounting.
“We tried to be as transparent as we could be, we issued press releases,” said Hickenlooper.
He said the donations were for a variety of initiatives and provided flyers for some of them, showing Anadarko as one of many sponsors.
But the only other public accounting of the donations is on a little-known website called the Transparency Online Project. After a time-consuming, multi-step search, CBS4 found the Anadarko donation under a tab titled “Combining Special Revenue” along with money from other private companies and foundations.
"Combining special revenue"…nice. Can I have some?
