Trump’s “Black Outreach” Effort Proceeds: He Wants a Nationwide Stop-and-Frisk Policy

Trump wants to bring back a failed unconstitutional program and make it national policy
Politics • Views: 42,163

Donald Trump has really been working on his “African American outreach” effort lately, because he dimly recognizes that having zero percent support is probably bad, and today we learned the next step in this outreach initiative to blacks and minorities: a nationwide stop-and-frisk policy.

He thinks it worked out great in New York City.

But in the real world where Donald Trump rarely visits, New York’s stop-and-frisk program was overwhelmingly targeted at people of color, was an almost total failure at preventing crime, and was eventually ruled unconstitutional by a federal judge.

Trump is like a lot of right wing politicians who sanctimoniously preach about the US Constitution — in truth he doesn’t really like anything about it except the Second Amendment.

And that’s leaving aside the fact that a president can’t unilaterally decree such a national policy at all. As usual, Trump is confusing the presidency with a dictatorship.

Trump is fond of begging African Americans to vote for him by asking, “What the hell do you have to lose?”

The answer should be, “Our civil rights and liberties.”

This guy is worse than any bad 1970’s dystopian movie dictator. It’s like someone decided to troll the entire planet. Just dress him up in a black mock turtleneck or silver jumpsuit and put him in front of a wall of blinking lights with nameless jumpsuit henchmen carrying clipboards behind him.

Drumpfskind is full into authoritarianism. It’s who he is.

Speaking of which:

Trump opposes plan for U.S. to cede internet oversight

U.S. Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump opposes a long-planned transition of oversight of the internet’s technical management from the U.S. government to a global community of stakeholders, his campaign said in a statement on Wednesday.

Congress should block the handover, scheduled to occur on Oct. 1, “or internet freedom will be lost for good, since there will be no way to make it great again once it is lost,” Stephen Miller, national policy director for the Trump campaign, said in a statement.

Senator Ted Cruz [… this is one of his pet idiocies.]

Technical experts have said those claims are baseless, and that a delay will backfire by undermining U.S. credibility in future international negotiations over internet standards and security.

[…]

Does it ever cross the mind of the Drumpfskind weenies that the claim “there will be no way to make it great again” sounds very stupid??

Not only did stop and frisk get stopped in NYC after a judge ruled it unconstitutional, but by the NYPD’s own statistics, crime has fallen since it was ruled unconstitutional.

Far from causing crime to spiral out of control, crime rates actually dropped.

So, there’s that.

huffingtonpost.com;

The US has a small number of troops in Iraq that are preparing an airfield for the Iraqi Air Force so they can use it in the campaign to retake Mosul.

The US troops came under rocket attack from Daesh. While no one was hurt, the Army suspects based on preliminary evidence that it was in fact intended to be a chemical attack against the US troops. The Army is now testing the remnants of the rockets for mustard gas and other agents. The article says there was a tarry, oily substance in the rockets (presumably this would not be part of a regular high explosive).

A few salient facts about NYC Stop and Frisk:

From a 2012 article:
In 2002, when Mr. Kelly last took office, officers stopped 97,296 New Yorkers and the city reported 587 homicides. Last year, those numbers were 685,724 and 532.

Of those frisked in 2011, a weapon was found just 1.9% of the time.
Last year, the NYPD made more stops of young black men than there are young black men in the city’s population. 158,406 young black men live in New York City and the NYPD made 168,126 stops t
forbes.com
(EDITED TO REMOVE DOUBLE QUOTE, BUT IT PROBABLY DESERVED TO BE REPEATED)

The NYPD and politicians have repeatedly justified the racial disparity in stop and frisks saying that they cops essentially go where the guns are, i.e. minority neighborhoods. Yet, only 1.9 percent of frisks in 2011 turned up weapons and interestingly, according to the NYCLU, “a weapon was found in only 1.8 percent of blacks and Latinos frisked, as compared to a weapon being found in 3.8 percent of whites frisked.”

I don’t think it’s known why crime rates are on a long term downward trend. The most reasonable theory I’ve seen is that it is from getting lead out of paint and gasoline to reduce lead exposure in children.

Naturally, today’s GOP is so obsessed with deregulation that they would undo the restrictions on environmental lead if given the chance to do so.

According to court testimony/depositions by officers, they were given quotas on how many people they were suppose to frisk a week.

When one of the officers objected, his sergeant told him to just find a random black or Hispanic guy to frisk.

That’s good to see. I think a little over a week ago the media was making it seem like it was in play. Maybe the poll narrowing is over. Maybe the Trump Charity stuff and his continued Trumpiness will keep it opening up for Clinton.

Hopefully she has a great first debate and it really starts to turn. Should that happen, we might get to see Trump come unglued.

I think that goes straight from tax evasion directly to money laundering.

Between this, the fraud committed by his Trump University endeavors, the bribery to government officials to drop the subsequent criminal investigations, using undocumented immigrants on his workforce, and what could easily be construed as human trafficking, there is a case that could be made for Donald Trump to be the first Presidential nominee to be charged under federal RICO statutes. All the while screaming for Hillary Clinton to be locked up for committing a non-existent criminal act. Or wistfully advocating that she be assassinated.

I’m starting to get rather disillusioned with most of the polling firms out there.
None of the major groups are engaging in outright push-polling, but there is a level of either using unreliable methodology (IPSOS/Reuters using opt-in internet polling and LA Times/USC tracking using weighted percentages versus straight preferences) or completely dishonest sampling on who is polled (CNN’s recent heavily oversampling of white over-50s while polling so few under-35s that their percentages didn’t even show up) that even a ballpark bellwether is next to impossible to garner.

If I remember correctly (too lazy to go check) NBC’s ocntribution was because Trump ran his mouth on the Apprentice about donating money and NBC ponied up the cash. NBC only cared about the ratings, so they’d do anything they could to keep the crybaby quiet.

It really does crack me up that Hillary said “half” (which I believe was a gross underestimate) and each and every one of the whiny Trumpets puts him or herself in that basket.

Edit to add: And Kellyanne really doesn’t want Hillary to answer, because Hillary’s answers are “too lengthy and lawyerly” for little Kellyanne.

re: #78 BeachDem

If I remember correctly (too lazy to go check) NBC’s ocntribution was because Trump ran his mouth on the Apprentice about donating money and NBC ponied up the cash. NBC only cared about the ratings, so they’d do anything they could to keep the crybaby quiet.

I doubt they gave so much as a single shit what happened to the money.

Yes, he’d make a big point about giving something out of his own pocket & NBC or the production co’s shell co. would make the payment.

He probably had in his contract that any mention of money WAS NOT HIS.

I thought this diary made a very good point:

Tuesday night, in the teaser segment before her report on the opening of the Bridgegate trial, Rachel Maddow reminded the audience just how we got to know about this story.

It started with reporting on a weird commuter traffic snafu reported by local paper which, when the problem continued, started digging and eventually found a now-famous email by Christie Deputy Chief of Staff Bridget Kelly pronouncing “time for some traffic problems.”

Maddow went on about how the paper’s reporters took the lead in untangling the ugly tale and ended the teaser with the news that the paper had been bought by a national media conglomerate, which announced plans to cut the newsroom staff in half.

Before cutting to commercial, she faced the camera and said, “During the break, go online and subscribe to your local paper. Doesn’t matter whether you like them or not. You need them. Just do it.”

We have all complained about NYT and the Post. There are local papers really doing the investigations. I would say in the DFW area that the Dallas Observer would be the most logical choice.

I’m glad to hear that Hillary is up 9 in NH. I drive all over for my kids’ events and I never would have guessed it. In the southern part of the state it’s probably 20-1 in favor of Trump signs. Of course, that’s in wealthy, sparsely populated areas. Concord, Hanover, and large parts of Manchester are certainly HRC-friendly. And the notoriously conservative Union-Leader has been anti-Trump from the beginning. My guess is that many Bernie-or-bust types are starting to come around for HRC. I hope they vote Van Ostern for Gov. and for Maggie, too.

John Bel Edwards: Climate change may not be man-made

Gov. John Bel Edwards, a Democrat, isn’t convinced human activity is contributing to global warming, a stance that puts him at odds with President Barack Obama, most other national figures in his own political party and the mainstream science community.

Edwards said twice on Wednesday (Sept. 21) that he agreed the globe was getting warmer, but he has not been persuaded the phenomenon is man-made. The governor’s comments where made during his monthly call-in radio show broadcast across Louisiana.

“I don’t think there’s any doubt that the climate is changing. The degree to which human conduct is impacting that change, I think, is somewhat debatable,” Edwards said.

John Bel Edwards: Climate change may not be man-made

Hard to be a Democrat in Louisiana right now, but JBE is a Democrat in very, very pale blue clothing. He’s just had a climate change flood disaster and he’s not owning it.

The problem with Louisiana is that there is very little tax income without oil and gas, the way the State funding is set up. There is no real alternative. They have gashed all other tax sources to the great pleasure of the lobbyists for all other interests.

This is also the problem in Venezuela, which is a petrocracy. Once you bet your fiscal policy totally on a commodity, you have left no alternative if the cost of that commodity does not remain stable or rise. If it falls, you are are fucked to the wall. You have no real alternatives. That is Louisiana today.

Also from Righ Wing Watch-our favorite God-botherer-in Chief Scott Liveley is at it again-but with an American twist:

Earlier this month, anti-LGBT activist Mike Heath of MaineResistance interviewed fellow extremist Religious Right activist Scott Lively, who continued to heap praise on Russian President Vladimir Putin for his crackdown on LGBT rights and hoped that, under a President Trump, similar anti-gay laws could be enacted in America.

Lively, who has called the passage of laws banning the spread of gay “propaganda” in Russia “one of the proudest achievements of my career” and urged the implementation of similar bans all over the world, voiced his hope that President Trump would “delegate to the church the task of shaping the culture.”

“I wish we would be able to duplicate that all over the world,” Lively said of passing Russian-style anti-gay laws. “That would really solve the problem.”

Just finished catching up with The Walking Dead, especially the season 6 finale that I had so far managed to miss.
Yeachh!
Phooey!
Fuck these idiots.

Nobody can manage razor edge creativity forever but they might have at least tried to stick with the realism and believability that were this series’ strong suit from the beginning.
Yeah, well, it’s a zombie flick, why expect realism?
Actually, one of the keys to good science fiction (which zombie flicks are if they have a medical rather than a supernatural premise) is to present an essentially fantastic situation and have believable people interacting with it in realistic ways. This creates the tension that lies at the heart of all fiction.
The final episode diverged even from the most basic consistency and plausibility: The evil Negan’s seemingly endless supply of biker hoodlums, their ability to stay ahead of Rick’s group to set up theatrically choreographed ambushes on every remote country trail and, worst of all, the ability of Rick’s friends to repeatedly make hair’s breadth escapes from seemingly hopeless captivity. This last appears to have finally come to an end with the final episode, which brings us to the cheap, disgusting, utterly disrespectful cliff-hanger ending. This is a worse trick even than Glenn’s apparent death.
I am not sure I will even watch Season 7.

re: #136 Shiplord Kirel

Just finished catching up with The Walking Dead, especially the season 6 finale that I had so far managed to miss.
Yeachh!
Phooey!
Fuck these idiots.

Nobody can manage razor edge creativity forever but they might have at least tried to stick with the realism and believability that were this series’ strong suit from the beginning.
Yeah, well, it’s a zombie flick, why expect realism?
Actually, one of the keys to good science fiction (which zombie flicks are if they have a medical rather than a supernatural premise) is to present an essentially fantastic situation and have believable people interacting with it in realistic ways. This creates the tension that lies at the heart of all fiction.
The final episode diverged even from the most basic consistency and plausibility: The evil Negan’s seemingly endless supply of biker hoodlums, their ability to stay ahead of Rick’s group to set up theatrically choreographed ambushes on every remote country trail and, worst of all, the ability of Rick’s friends to repeatedly make hair’s breadth escapes from seemingly hopeless captivity. This last appears to have finally come to an end with the final episode, which brings us to the cheap, disgusting, utterly disrespectful cliff-hanger ending. This is a worse trick even than Glenn’s apparent death.
I am not sure I will even watch Season 7.

Critical critical. I cannot wait. But death death death will be on the 1st show.

That’s what I will have to do. You’d figure being nice and restraining myself from posting my experience online would have the GM more than willing to work with me on this.

re: #122 electrotek

Ugh, I’m gonna focus less on politics for the time being as my dispute with a Hampton Inn location still has yet to be resolved. Long story short, the dumbasses at the Hampton Inn at Santa Ana didn’t follow correct procedure and the front end manager ended up having my car towed from their lot to which I had to pay $300 out of pocket on top of the $173 that they charged me for the hotel room last month. I have the feeling that the GM is blowing me off and refusing to respond to my emails as he has not followed up with me since I last spoke to him early last week.

Fucking frustrating.

Ask for the regional manager’s email and phone no. If they demur, you can probably find it by Googling. Or you could call a nearby Hampton Inn and ask for the RM’s contact info.

A sleuth searching TripAdvisor photos found one of the missing (the 10K one, not the 20K one) Trump paintings for Fahrenthold. Then a Univision reporter went to the Doral golf club to take a photo. Brilliant.

That was sent on 8/17 btw. The towing occurred on 8/13.

Yeah I know, but it’s from experience since majority of managers would rather deal with a nice and level-headed customer than one that is bat-shit crazy lol.

Case in point about irrational customer:

I was at the Apple Store today 30 minutes before close so I can check out the iPhone 7 in person and see how I would like it. A gentleman came in and started complaining because the Apple Store can not assist him with his broken phone without booking an appointment at the Genius Bar. He said that AT&T Store told me I can go straight to the Apple Store and they can swap it out with a new one, no questions asked. On one hand, I felt for the guy because he was given misinformation by the AT&T Store employee and drove from DeSoto to Dallas in hopes of that resolved, but on the other, he should understand that this is not the fault of the Apple Store for their misinformation. He was adamant about getting it fixed and he thought he was paying monthly for AppleCare which we all know you don’t. I’m not sure what happened after that, but I just couldn’t help but to shake my head over something that wasn’t even the fault of Apple to begin with. How can Apple do something about the staff of the AT&T store giving him misinformation about that?

Good night, Lizardim!

Gotta sleep. Ten o’clock set-up tomorrow to stage manage a show for an Oliver Rajamani gig on Friday at the Carver Center. It’s the big orchestra (12-piece) for his Indian/ Gypsy/Texican fusion performance and She Who Must Be Obeyed will be playing harp. Also, Alia Mohamed is coming down from Dallas as the featured belly dancer. She is more than a big deal. It’s going to be killer bee.

Now she has the UMRK. She’s stoked.

I can think of a lot of worse people that could have bought Frank Zappa’s house up there off Laurel Canyon Blvd. on Woodrow Wilson Drive than Lady Gaga. I’m actually happy for her, that’s a cool purchase.

Still, though, Gail Zappa mismanaged the estate the whole time from Frank’s passing. I’m with Moon on this in that I wish the house were preserved and turned into a museum and music school. Who knows. Lady Gaga could do that, and I’m sure Moon has met her during this transaction.

Los Angeles is a big place. 10 million people live in Los Angeles County, including our humble host.

In L.A., it’s a lot like Denver; if you know where the mountains are you can orient yourself. Thing is, in Denver it’s one goddamned mountain range to the west. In L.A. there’s mountains that run north/south *and* east west so you have to orient yourself to those mountains accordingly.

And don’t even get me started on the concrete jungle south of downtown. :-P

Ever read Ecology Of Fear? Love this book.
amazon.com with a bold political and environmental vision, much splendid phrasemaking and a multitude of facts… . A truly eccentric contribution.”—The New York Times Book Review

Earthquakes. Wildfires. Floods. Drought. Tornadoes. Snakes in the sea, mountain lions, and a plague of bees. In this controversial tour de force of scholarship, unsparing vision, and inspired writing, Mike Davis, the author of City of Quartz, revisits Los Angeles as a Book of the Apocalypse theme park. By brilliantly juxtaposing L.A.’s fragile natural ecology with its disastrous environmental and social history, he compellingly shows a city deliberately put in harm’s way by land developers, builders, and politicians, even as the incalculable toll of inevitable future catas-trophe continues to accumulate.

Counterpointing L.A.’s central role in America’s fantasy life—the city has been destroyed no less than 138 times in novels and films since 1909—with its wanton denial of its own real history, Davis creates a revelatory kaleidoscope of American fact, imagery, and sensibility. Drawing upon a vast array of sources, Ecology of Fear meticulously captures the nation’s violent malaise and desperate social unease at the millennial end of “the American century.” With savagely entertaining wit and compassionate rage, this book conducts a devastating reconnaissance of our all-too-likely urban future.

Working on a documentary, studying LA history has been really interesting. One of our early mayors is listed with his ethnicity as “mulatto”. I found this from when my great grandfather partnered up with my grandfather to start a jewelry company.

In the middle is Pershing Square. These days the jewelry district is on two sides of Pershing Square, and more buildings to the right.

Fun fact! Jake Cinninger (guitarist for Umphrey’s McGee) moved to Nashville when he was a teenager, and he acquired steady work as a session guitar player. They paired him up with an up and coming famous country music star, and Jake was the guitarist (he’s a teenager at this time).

Well, that famous country music star died in a drunk driving accident.

So Jake went back to Niles, MI, his hometown (not far from Notre Dame) where he met a bunch of music freaks and now he’s in Umphrey’s McGee.

Normally the kind of “small government” rural white conservative that supports Trump would be horrified by his nationwide stop & frisk plan.

It should also be expanded to “fiscal stop and frisk”, namely people with a history of fraud or tax evasion should have their accounts suspended and examined on a regular basis.

and also a healthy dose of God, country, family values, small towns, white picket fences, hard workin’ folk who ain’t got much but what we got we earned on our own (and ain’t nobody gonna take it without a fight) etc.,

My ex once bought a Toby Keith CD “White Trash with Money”. The liner notes state that it was dedicated to “My Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ”.

The first song on the album is all about moral absolutism “Ain’t no Right Way to do a Wrong Thing”, while last song on the album, “Running Block” is a song about getting drunk and fucking ugly women in motel rooms.

Thank you, Jesus.
