Even with the national Republicans throwing all their weight behind Feenstra, his lead over King is now less than 1k.

Seriously, I was just taking a quick look though Feenstra’s Twitter and his campaign website. He seems really careful never to specifically call out King’s racism. He calls him “caustic” and blames him for diminishing Iowa’s presence in Congress, but he never says “Steve King is racist”.

King supporters are the heart of Trump supporters. Is there any real difference between the two men in terms of ideology? It is chilling to deal with those who remain Trump adherents — friends and family — who, outside of politics, seem like decent human beings but metastasize into something evil when politics arises. But maybe that’s because, for most of us, we end up treating issues like racism and immigration as political and thereby avoid confronting these problems in our conversations.

And his record/endorsements do not read “moderate” to me.

Feenstra was supported by the United States Chamber of Commerce and National Right to Life Committee. Feenstra’s candidacy has also been supported by conservative political commentator and radio host, Ben Shapiro, who urged his Twitter followers to donate to Feenstra’s campaign

Bills Sponsored By: Randy Feenstra: A bill for an act relating to the definition of person from the moment of conception until natural death under the criminal code.

Feenstra was the only candidate to have both an endorsement from National Right to Life and an “A” rating from the National Rifle Association

Nebraska continues to add more information to its so-called dashboard of Covid-19 information.

They’ve now added American Sign Language videos to explain the information on the page. The page is also available in English, Spanish, Somali, Arabic, Chinese, Vietnamese, Korean, and French. (Nebraska has the highest population of refugees per capita of any state.)

I think the initial stifling of information by our governor wasn’t going over well, since they keep expanding what’s available. To be charitable, they may also have had limited information because they had to set up an interactive Website collecting information from ninety-three counties (many without Internet service), numerous cities, and eight public health districts.

Statewide:
nebraska.maps.arcgis.com
14,611 cases (+266)
Total hospitalisations: 851 Active: 194
Largest age group: 55-64, then 65-74

Two hours ago:

Large crowds of protesters persist despite DC curfew (Fox 5 in DC)

WASHINGTON - Long after D.C.’s stated curfew went into effect, large crowds of demonstrators protesting the death of George Floyd lingered in Lafayette Park on Tuesday night.

FOX 5’s Lindsay Watts observed the protesters for several hours, and noted that they were largely peaceful.

Previous nights of social protest in the District have begun peacefully, but rapidly escalated into clashes with police.

The concept of alpha maleness exists to kite disproportionate aggression and treating all interactions as power struggles as somehow natural and good as opposed to authoritarian and crude.

I mean, it’s a special kind of stupid and weak to use a debunked descriptor of a predator social hierarchy to describe a within-species, within-socialization interaction. It’s the participation trophy of evo psych pseudointellectual schemes. Might as well give yourself a ribbon for pissing on a lamp post.

The concept of alpha maleness exists to kite disproportionate aggression and treating all interactions as power struggles as somehow natural and good as opposed to authoritarian and crude.

To those who actually study the topic of animal behavior, the whole alpha thing is just part of a complex system of interaction, and is more descriptive of the position a creature currently occupies within the pack/clan/herd rather than its innate traits.

All Lives Matter was the slip showing on whites uncomfortable with BLM.

The words themselves said in good faith should reinforce, uplift, BLM’s message, but how they’re applied is simply whataboutism.

Blue Lives matter is the further elaboration of white supremacy intersecting with boilerplate authoritarianism: if a policeman can die on the job you cannot address the specific phenomenon of people killed by the police because…implicitly…police “survival” simply has to include a discretion to kill and it is wrong to question this axiom or call for accountability.

In many respect, it borrows from the manifold of bullshit used in reactionary gun culture: there is a deliberate linguistic walk-around the base assumption that the person using lethal force cannot be legitimately doubted in their discernment of threat.

Pretty much anyone the GOP nominates would vote the same as King - they’re the party of lockstep and monolithic voting since GOP uber alles is stamped on them.

I’d still rather have King sidelined by *his own party* since it still is a bit of a statement that he’s gone beyond some kind of pale. Or at least enough people have decided that he’s too much of an asshole to tolerate compared to someone else. Feenstra might well be Nazi-lite and as racist (but not openly saying it), but I view him as ultimately being no worse than King.

Therein lay the problem, though.

The Democrats could campaign against King and get at least some nodding agreement from the middle of the road Republicans (if any remain in Iowa.)

Feenstra will be a shiny new toy by which Iowa Republicans can feel cleaner in voting for him than they would King.

so you’d view the Iowa GOP voters keeping King as a mistake (or potential mistake) and thus wouldn’t want to stop them from making such a mistake.

Will also have to see if King takes his loss in stride and accepts future political obscurity, or tantrums in some way before departing.

Oh, I’m sure there are those who are recognizing that Donny is a shit sandwich, but most of them made peace with that ages ago because there was something in it for them. We’ve seen story after story about the people who’ve been fucked over by this administration, from farmers to factory workers, who still go to bed at night praising his name because they thing “any day now” it’s all gonna pay off for them and them alone.

For the majority of them, if they’re turning their backs on Trump now, it’s because he’s ceased being an asset and started becoming a liability.

This seems less than helpful.

Authorities in Wuhan separately said that city-wide testing of 9.9 million people that began in mid-May found no new cases of Covid-19, and 300 asymptomatic cases. China does not count asymptomatic cases - meaning people who are infected with the virus but do not exhibit symptoms of the disease - as confirmed cases.

And

There are fears the increased use of antibiotics to combat the pandemic will strengthen bacterial resistance and ultimately lead to more deaths during the crisis and beyond, the World Health Organization (WHO) has warned.

I wake up to find professional bigot King is going bye-bye. Except he really won’t. He’ll either get his own show on WHO along with all the other family friendly nazis, or Trump will make him…something.
I want to be happy, but with Vander Plaats running the R machine around here it doesn’t matter. Feenstra is as bad as King, believe me. He’s just a bit savvier about saying the evil shit only in private.
He will win. Period. I’d like it not to be true, but Steve Scholten won’t win. He tries to be the Iowa Nice version of Beto, but he’s no Beto. He’s very good at pointing out the missed and bad votes of his opponent, especially concerning farming. He’d make a pretty good congressman, but this fucking part of Iowa is chock full of dead-eyed red hats.

I’m assuming investigations and being certain of what laws were broken and how to write the warrants. Arrests for arrests sake is pointless if you don’t have the laws behind the arrest. These are people who didn’t kneel on the guy, they just did nothing as he died.

I guess you have to think like a lawyer because that’s what’s going to result in convictions. I don’t give a shit about arrests, accountability comes from convictions.

That’s what I want across the board, accountability, convictions, sentences, forfeiture of monies and property, etc., etc., etc., for everyone from trump down.

White people:
Nooooo… not that. It’s like a sacred song… and the troops and all that

Could we wear tshirts with the victims names on them?

Are we going to have to see you wear them? Like, are basketball players going to wear them for warm ups on tv and stuff?
Black people:
Yeah
White people:
No, we really don’t like that idea either
Black people:
Could we storm the capital building with AK 47s?
White people:
No. That’s just for us when we can’t go to the salon. We’d probably kill you if you tried that
Black people:
So what do you want us to do then?

I wake up to find professional bigot King is going bye-bye. Except he really won’t. He’ll either get his own show on WHO along with all the other family friendly nazis, or Trump will make him…something.
I want to be happy, but with Vander Plaats running the R machine around here it doesn’t matter. Feenstra is as bad as King, believe me. He’s just a bit savvier about saying the evil shit only in private.
He will win. Period. I’d like it not to be true, but Steve Scholten won’t win. He tries to be the Iowa Nice version of Beto, but he’s no Beto. He’s very good at pointing out the missed and bad votes of his opponent, especially concerning farming. He’d make a pretty good congressman, but this fucking part of Iowa is chock full of dead-eyed red hats.
At least Greenfield has a shot at unseating Ernst.

My mistake. I thought it was All Black People.

Years ago, Louis Farrakhan admitted that his incendiary rhetoric may well have played a part in Malcolm X’s death and he regretted that. As to whether the NoI’s leadership was behind it…..that’s a question we’ll probably never know the answer to. There’s also suspicions his assassination may have been connected with COINTELPRO.

Trump’s a bunker bitch who needs the troops to expand the WH cordon to keep peaceful protests from being seen and heard inside the WH - showing how weak and small Trump is.

Warren strode among the crowd without a care in the world yesterday (other than covid19 masking precautions). Trump is too much a whiny little bitch to do anything of the sort. He’s reviled by everyone except his cult base. And the GOP keeps sucking up to him, even though they should know better.

Fuck ‘em. Let him destroy the GOP. They are irredeemably awful and should be destroyed for their amoral bulkshit and institutionalized racism, misogyny, and hate of all things that aren’t rich white guys getting richer while burden shifting to everyone else.

Remember, the GOP are the ones who love to claim Democrats are into redistribution of wealth. Well, during the Trump economic collapse, billionaires got fuck-tons wealthier, while 25% of Americans found themselves unemployed.

And guess what GOPers - the CBO is predicting that it might take a decade or more to recover from the Trump economic collapse. That means years of awful economic conditions thanks to Trump’s epic failure to heed any of the warnings by public health experts to act.

So, again, fuck Trump, fuck the GOP, and fuck all the enablers.

Which explains why the the Black guy is the center of the action and the most powerful figure. Aside from the nagging sense I’d seen McNaughton’s painting before, I wondered why the figures of Law and Order were so shadowy and weak.

… The 4th District is 92.8 percent white, making it one of the least diverse districts in the country.

It is also historically conservative, but the controversies swirling around King took a toll on his popularity. In 2016, he won by 22 percentage points over his Democratic opponent. In 2018, he beat first-time candidate J.D. Scholten by barely three points, and now Scholten is running again with a campaign war chest five times as large as that of any GOP candidate

Force Republicans to spend money in the district.

You can count the number of GOP votes changed on one hand. People who still supported Trump at the beginning of this year are not changing their minds. A never Trumper acquaintance posted a FB comment on his respect for George Will including a link to Will’s latest column from June 1. A Trumpster friend of his then responded: “Will’s hatred has the same origin as Bill Kristol’s and the rest of the merry band of #NeverTrumpers. He fails to meet their refined standards of civility. Furthermore, he stole their audience”. We engaged in a friendly dialogue but it was impossible for him to accept that the problem with Trump was greater than his demeanor and that criticisms of many NeverTrumpers also related to policy. The supporters are even more vile than Trump — they somehow think it requires some excessively refined sense of civility to be outraged by Trump’s bullying.

I remain totally bewildered by the failure of the GOP and their base to object to Trump’s slavish obeisance to Putin. But they look at Trump and see a great leader so clearly wherever he goes, they follow.

in the beginning maybe they gave him a chance to see what he’d do and whether he’d be at all presidential

now everyone knows.
after 4 years all they do is look at trump and see an R
an R means we’re in power
an R means judges
an R means rolling back some regulations (temporarily and probably with no effect)
with the congressional gridlock, these days it doesnt mean much else cause they aint gonna pass any more legislation

they say he’s a great leader.
they have to maintain the fiction.
they know what he is

they also have a good idea what’s gonna happen in november

everyone, on all sides, in all countries are just hoping to run out the clock without a complete nuclear, military or other unnecessary disaster

Trump was able to count on his rabid base turning out en masse. Even if they are not about to change over to the Dems, they might find their enthusiasm dampened and not turn out in the numbers they did in 2016, whereas an awful lot of the people who stayed home then have learned their lesson.

from electoral-vote.com 6/1/20

A new Washington Post/ABC News poll taken May 25-28 and released yesterday has Joe Biden at 53% and Donald Trump at 43%. There are two noteworthy aspects to this top line. First, it is a double-digit lead. There is no plausible way Trump can lose the popular vote by 10 points and somehow win the Electoral College. A 5-point loss…maybe (but unlikely), but 10 points, no way. Second 53 + 43 = 96. You probably knew that. And you probably also know 100 - 96 = 4. That means 96% of the voters have already made up their minds. Now one more bit of math. This time, an inequality rather than an equation: 43 + 4 < 53. This means that even if every undecided voter breaks for Trump, that’s not enough and he still loses. The election is still 5 months away and much can change, but as we pointed out last week, both campaigns believe that only about 5% of the voters are undecided, and this poll is consistent with that belief.

I agree. The important task is to get out our voters — trying to persuade the GOP base is a futile task. My post should have highlighted the 2nd statement: that the comment applies to those who were still devoted to him at the beginning of the year. Those who voted against Hillary rather than for Trump could be persuaded.
