Watch Live: Trump Rants Again in Tampa, FL

Politics • Views: 49,007

YouTube

As I write this, Rudy Giuliani is ranting hysterically about Hillary Clinton’s so-called “pay for play” operation and her emails, and accusing her of being a criminal. He sounds like a deranged loon: “Crime after crime after crime after crime after crime! Do they think we’re STUPID?”

And the crowd, of course, is screaming, “LOCK HER UP! LOCK HER UP!”

Today the breaking news is that the Clinton Foundation worked with the State Department and private donors to finance AIDS research! Scandal! Pay for play! How dare they?!

As it turns out, the AP’s big expose on the Clinton Foundation “scandal” is another big nothingburger. But they couldn’t admit that, so they lied about the percentage of meetings Clinton took with Foundation Donors when she was Secretary of State.

This is your GOP base folks. Deranged and unhinged. And Trump and his surrogates mirror and mimic this behavior.

Decades of Fox News indoctrination have helped lead us to this point.

A pliant media that can’t help but think in terms of dollars and horse races has helped. They need to do something to keep Hillary from blowing out Trump too soon, so they’re pushing this BS story about the Clinton Foundation and how it’s a fraud, scam, or worse, even as reporters keep turning up nothing wrong - not ethical missteps not criminal wrongdoing - nothing.

But it’s not stopping outlets like AP from mischaracterizing their findings, especially in Tweets/headlines, which is all that most people will bother reading.

Far from the percentage claimed in tweets, the reality is only a few people actually had meetings with Clinton while as Secretary of State who actually donated to the Foundation, and even then, there’s no evidence there was any action taken on their behalf. None. Zip. Zilch.

Clinton also oversaw a public-private State Department initiative to help with public health in Africa, and there were donations made to that. Again, no evidence of wrongdoing.

Of course, there’s also the inevitable mentions of Huma Abedin, who did her job in keeping State Dept business separate from Foundation stuff - again, no wrongdoing, but that’s not stopping the loons from insinuating the worst.

Which brings us back to Rudy, who should know better, but doesn’t care. He’s all in with Trump, which means he’s bought into the delusional world of InfoWars, Prison Planet, and National Enquirer as legit news sources, when they are no such thing. They drive traffic based on conspiracy theories, and the more insane/outlandish the claim, the more traffic.

Alex Jones is the big winner here, and Trump’s done more to mainstream him than anyone not named Drudge.

Ah, I missed the use of the future tense in my first glance at the tweet. Seriously, we were told he GAVE $100,000. Past tense.

This sounds exactly like when he had to scramble to find someplace to send $1Million he’d promised on national television months before, when the article came out saying he hadn’t.

“People are dying with Obamacare.”

Torchwood: Miracle Day? All deaths have ceased? Seriously? People were dying before Obamacare, they died after it was enacted, and it will continue to occur.

What has changed is that there’s people who can gain medical insurance they otherwise wouldn’t have been able to. Insurance companies continue to do what they’ve always done - which includes limiting care, playing games with doctors in/out network, and fighting against certain kinds of care.

Medicare/Medicaid have their own issues, particularly in controlling costs beyond their control, like the EpiPen mess (which once again highlights that drug costs are something that is set by the pharmaceutical companies and often has no relation to the cost to produce these items, or even the costs needed to be recouped for R&D).

He’s going to stop people from being shot.

Ok tough guy. HOW?

Rudy couldn’t stop all the gun violence in NYC (which was already on decline before he took office, and Commissioner Bratton instituted comp stat which helped drive the drop in crime to lows not seen in decades).

You know what’d stop gun violence? Enhanced gun purchase screening, better enforcement, and uniform nationwide rules, so that someone from a weak gun law state can go buy guns, straw sell them to someone elsewhere, and then go black market to the ultimate criminal user in a place like NYC (where majority of guns in crimes are coming from weak gun law states). IOW, the crime rate would be even lower if the laws were stricter.

But Trump’s with the GOP, so that’s not going to happen. Ever.

Which means that his claims to stop gun crimes is the same kind of hot air as all his other stuff - empty platitudes designed to keep anxious and angry white older folks anxious and angry, and likely voting for him.

Trudeau is the best:

Trudeau dismissed the idea of a burkini ban in Canada, saying Canadians should rise above the controversy.

“In Canada, can we speak of acceptance, openness, friendship, understanding? It is about where we are going and what we are going through every day in our diverse and rich communities,” he said.

Trudeau bemoaned instances where governments preach tolerance but act to undermine individual rights, saying with irony: “Tolerating someone means accepting their right to exist on the condition that they don’t disturb us too, too much.”

He just took a swing at France.

Black teen unemployment rate is actually 25.7%, which sounds high, but its rarely been lower. Overall Black unemployment at 8.4% has also rarely been lower. For contrast, from 1974 until 1997 black unemployment was never below 10%, and was usually much higher.

I was convinced for about two and a half years after the 2000 election that Gore was going to run again, either in 2004 or in 2008. So a 2004 rematch in this alternate universe isn’t out of the question.

re: #207 Ziggy_TARDIS

Possible, but not likely. There were systematic failures within the federal government, particularly with respect to the sharing of intelligence. I’m not sure that Gore being in charge changes the fact that the CIA and NSA were reluctant to share information and their means of acquiring said information with the FBI or the DOJ.

While working in Taipei we would frequent a Mongolian BBQ that was fantastic. However, you quickly learned that as you made up your bowl in the self service line, you wanted to make ab-so-lute-ly certain to add plenty of the sauces to make it plenty wet. When the man at the huge inverted wok cooked it up for you, if it was, in his estimation too dry, he would ladle liquid over it from a bucket by his foot. Distress would follow. You never wanted him to go to the bucket.

Who stands in front of a plate glass window while recording a tornado across the street? Get in the god damn basement!

I wasn’t recording a tornado, but I was standing in front of the entrance to the mall across the street from Temple Square when a tornado tracked across it during my lunch hour. I’d heard a transformer blow up while I was reading a book and wandered outside to see what was going on. I should have guessed it was a tornado from the way the street signs were vibrating back and forth, the way the carriages horses were being pushed back, and the fact that I could see continuous greenbar paper fluttering around in the air, slowly, in a circular pattern in the air just south of the Salt Lake Temple. The tornado continued to move to the northeast and I went back into the mall to continue reading this biography of Vera Nabokov.

It wasn’t until I got back from lunch and everyone was packing up to leave that I discovered we’d had a tornado and downtown was being evacuated. So yeah, it’s possible to be quite stupid about these kinds of things.

wrenchwench  Aug 24, 2016 • 2:07:08pm

Back in 1972, John Lennon hired Leon Wildes, an immigration attorney who had no idea who he was.

Wildes’ son, Michael, remembers his father coming home to tell his mother about their first meeting.

“And he said, ‘A singer by the name of Jack Lemon and his wife Yoko Moto,’ ” Michael recalls. “My mom looked at him like he wasn’t well. ‘Are you talking about the Beatles and John Lennon?’ My father said, ‘Yeah!’ “

[…]

Under federal law, immigration officials can choose to prioritize certain deportation cases while holding off on other ones for humanitarian or political reasons.

The problem at the time was that Wildes didn’t have proof that this kind of program existed until he filed a Freedom of Information Act request.

“When the box came into my office, there was jubilation!” Wildes said. “Unbelievable feeling that I had succeeded.”

In the end, Lennon received a green card, which allowed him to stay in the U.S. But those files led U.S. immigration officials to publicize a secret policy.

[…]

The files showed that for decades, the government had shielded some immigrants living in the U.S. illegally from deportation because of their sympathetic cases. The Obama administration used that policy to create the original Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, or DACA.

[…]

RTWT. It’s well-written and good news.

This copy is far more inventive than anything I was ever given (other than the phrase “watch them SHAKE HANDS WITH THE DEVIL as they race through the GATES OF HELL!”

But back to the sign: some poor schlub who needs to run a gun store, surrounded by long, hard, imposing rods of steel, and who then feels it necessary to angrily post about “Vagendas” …. I mean, seriously?

Just tie the guy to a chair and throw tiny little cocktail weenies at his face until he cracks and comes to terms with who he really is. I see this sign as basically a cry for help.

Especially because there were a large number of details about Foreign Support.

Saudi may be more involved then we thought, and the investigators on that commission found some evidence that the Iranian Revolutionary Guard was in contact with come of the conspirators. While the Civilian Side was giving warnings about something happening.

The only way to be able to make sense of the Iranian Government right now is that they seem to have a “Civilian” Government around the President and “Military/Religious” one around the Supreme Leader, and that they don’t cooperate.

I think the moment Khamenei dies, Iran will go Turtle. Right now, the group that chooses the Supreme Leader has more Hardliners, but only by something like 55-45, plus or minus 3%. It requires a 2/3rds+ vote to choose the next one.

Khameini, through his “charity” has amassed a massive fortune for himself and his family and supports, with him in control of $95 billion through the foundation he leads. Not to mention, right now you have massive glut of Millennials that make up a much bigger percentage of the population that here that are struggling to find work, and are very well educated, and upset with the continuing hyper-conservative influence. And the fact that the Religious Establishment is corrupt in that it is pushing against the progression of more liberal leaders through the ranks, including the son of Khomeini, who is a reformist himself.

The moment Khamenei dies, Iran is going to blow up.

The Presidency and Parliament are held by the Reformists. The Supreme Leader, and th group that will choose the next one are held by hardliners, but not by enough to choose on their own.

Meanwhile, you have a generation that is very large and not happy with the austere attitude of the hardliners.

Once Khamenei dies, the current situation will no longer be able to stand. Something will happen internally, but I am not sure what. Neither the Reformists or the Hardliners have the power to move forward. Something will give out.

And Khamenei is not going to be around for much longer. He is 79, and was treated for Prostate Cancer 2 years ago, and his right arm is useless and crippled after an Assassination attempt in 1981. The average life span in Iran for Men is 75.4. The Angel of Death will come for him in the relatively near future. I think Khamenei will die before the US Presidential Election in 2020.
