Extremely controversial title by Time magazine of all things Wow!

https://time.com/5628283/trump-tweets-racist-white-america/

 

It's an opinion piece, but even so it's surprising they ran it. Still, Time hasn't been the Republican stronghold it once was for many years now. The current editor is a Jewish guy from Memphis who has degrees from Princeton and Harvard, hardly the type to wear a MAGA cap.

In non political news, congrats to the Nats. No, not for booing the President...lol...for winning the misnamed World Series as my soccer friends in England like to remind me. "Its not a world series if you lot are the only ones playing, Steve"  okay...okay. 

There's a Canadian team in the American League, but many Brits I know seem to consider Canadians simply as Yanks who say "eh".  :)

American Jews have been moving more and more into hardcore right wing politics. Alan Dershowitz has been on Fox News pretty much trying to apply for a job in the Trump administration. Stephen Miller, Trump's immigration adviser is the grandson of a death camp survivor and is the one who advocated putting kids in cages. The term Neo-Cons are made up in part of Jews (Paul Wolfowitz, Elliot Abrams, Richard Perle, Charles Krauthammer, etc.).  And Jewish conservatives are growing. Unlike pre 60s, Jews are now seen for the most part as 'White Americans', so many have taken on the politics as a result. Many groujps have made that change. The Irish were called 'The Irish Race' for most of the 1800s and were not seen as 'white' as we know it but are now. Same with Sicilians. But now have been 'mainstreamed'. 

Anyway, the south, the last real stronghold of anti-semitic mindset has been changing since the fundamentalists there have been the biggest supporter of Israel. Primarily to fulfill the prophecies of the book of Revelation (which doesn't end well for Jews ironically).

Trump threatening to withhold federal money to help fight the fires in California purely because he and the governor don't get along politically is not even shocking anymore.  I recall Obama offered any help then Republican governor, presidential candidate and Trump supporter Christie wanted. That's class. Obama always had class even if you disagreed with him politically. Bush was always kind even in the face of name calling from Dems. Class. 

But this? Withholding money may cost lives. It speaks to who Trump is.

"He is a proven liar, leaker & freak who is really the one who should be impeached!" Trump tweeted. "

 

Talking about himself in a moment of enlightenment , one would think. But not, Shiff is now his "proven liar".

I wonder if Trump knows that Schiff is not the president.

A man in a t-shirt printed  GOD   GUNS   TRUMP  appeared today on TV , I believe in Kentucky. He then explained why he adores Trump. Any further comment would  be superflous.

Trump is literally an un-indicted co-conspirator in the conviction of his fixer/lawyer Cohen. It attests to the incompetency of the Democrats that purely for political currency they don't repeat that every time they are on tv or give an interview. Respect to the Republicans, they'd have already had impeachment conviction vote by now  if the roles were reversed. And rightfully so.

For the dime store lawyers here...

Read Deep State Transcripts From Democrats’ Secret Impeachment Hearings

Despite media hysteria, transcripts of testimonies don’t prove quid pro quo by Trump

“Both transcripts released today show there is even less evidence for this illegitimate impeachment sham than previously thought,” stated White House press secretary Stephanie Grisham.

“Ambassador Sondland squarely states that he ‘did not know, (and still does not know) when, why or by whom the aid was suspended.’ He also said he ‘presumed’ there was a link to the aid — but cannot identify any solid source for that assumption.”

“By contrast, Volker’s testimony confirms there could not have been a quid pro quo because the Ukrainians did not know about the military aid held at the time. No amount of salacious media-biased headlines, which are clearly designed to influence the narrative, change the fact that the President has done nothing wrong,” Grisham added.

Google your own links to the transcripts...
