  1. Elena Kagan and Sonia Sotomayor. Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh. No real choice between Obama’s Supreme Court Justices and Trump’s? The ignorance is staggering!
  2. So it took Obama and Reed to point out to Buttigieg and Klobuchar that they didn’t have any money to spend on ten Super Tuesday primaries and neither had shown any strength among non-white voters? What a crock! Not strange at all. https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2020/mar/05/super-tuesday-black-voters-analysis-recap Biden’s comeback was delivered in some measure by strong support from older, black voters, primarily in the south. Exit polls from Super Tuesdayshow he won 63% of black Democratic voters casting their ballots in Virginia, 72% in Alabama and about 60% in T
  3. 8 days before the March 1 drop out date for Buttigieg and Klobuchar: https://www.politico.com/news/2020/02/21/fec-bernie-2020-funding-116558 Warren, Biden and Buttigieg dangerously close to going broke Joe Biden, Pete Buttigieg, Amy Klobuchar and Elizabeth Warren each started the month scraping perilously close to the bottom of their campaign bank accounts, posing an existential threat to their candidacies as the Democratic primary goes national. </q> Without James Clyburn’s endorsement and Biden’s black support he loses So. Carolina and drops out just like Buttigi
  4. So you say. So the fact no Dem nominee has won without a majority of the black vote since 1988 registers not at all with you? What were Klobuchar and Buttigieg’s numbers in the first four races? In four races (three in more heavily white States) Buttigieg gained 17% of the total vote. In Iowa 25.1%, in New Hampshire 24.3%, in Nevada 17.3, in So. Carolina 8.2%. In Iowa Klobuchar got 12.2%, in New Hampshire 19.7%, in Nevada 7.3%, in So. Carolina 3.1%. And it took “extraordinary intervention by the Dem party” to point out the obvious that the air was coming out of their
  5. Two more words: black women. Black people have been picking the Dem nominee at least since 2008, and black females are the activist backbone of the party. Biden was shellacked in Iowa, New Hampshire, and Nevada going into the South Carolina primary. He was broke. But So. Carolina Congressman Jim Clyburn came out with impassioned support for Biden. Biden racked up a huge victory and proceeded to swamp Bernie going forward with overwhelming support from black female activists. How many corporatist Super Delegates voted? Zero.
  6. I’m shocked by the degree Jeff reflects ignorance of American politics! In 2018 the DNC voted to allow no super-delegate votes on the first ballot. https://ballotpedia.org/Superdelegates_and_the_2020_Democratic_National_Convention Advocates for reducing superdelegate influence Tom Perez, DNC chairman: "Today is a historic day for our party. We passed major reforms that will not only put our next presidential nominee in the strongest position possible, but will help us elect Democrats up and down the ballot, across the country. These reforms will help grow our party, un
  7. No, but only a minority of people who identify as Antifa are Black Bloc. It’s important to make that distinction, otherwise we’re doing PR for Trump. I rented one of my rooms to a Black Bloc activist back in 2016. A lovely person, young woman of 29. I had a few long talks with her, we agreeably disagreed about trashing banks. I told her about my anti-fascist activities in the hardcore punk scene in the mid-80’s. There were right ways to do things, and wrong ways. She gave me major respect, and took my gentle advice to heart, I like to think. She was only involved in on
  8. Larry, do you think the CIA and the military made a serious effort to force JFK to green-light D-Day air strikes? I know Cabell made such a request around 04:30 on D-Day, and Admiral Burke urged air strikes around 02:00 D-Day +2 — but those seem like merely face-saving gestures.
  9. https://ratical.org/ratville/JFK/FalseMystery/PromotionOfDomesticDiscord.html In 1972 Vincent Salandria wrote: In the article “The Assassination of President John F. Kennedy: A Model for Explanation” which was published in the December, 1971, issue of Computers and Automation, I said: Is there any evidentiary support for such a design of social engineering having been foisted on us by the CIA and its conduits through the foundations?... McGeorge Bundy’s Ford Foundation’s experiment caused New York City to shut down its educational system. That city became polarized: new
  10. Anti-Fascists Will Fight Trump’s Fascism in the Streets https://www.thenation.com/article/archive/anti-fascist-activists-are-fighting-the-alt-right-in-the-streets/ To call Trumpism fascist is to suggest that it demands from us a unique response. We can deploy the “fascism” moniker to Trump’s ascendance by recognizing features like selective populism, nationalism, racism, traditionalism, the deployment of Newspeak and disregard for reasoned debate. The reason we should use the term is because, taken together, these aspects of Trumpism are not well combated or contained by standard li
  11. The murder of a Trump supporter in Portland — apparently at the hand of an Antifa activist — was an aberration. Anti-fascists linked to zero murders in the US in 25 years As Trump rails against ‘far-left’ fascism, new database shows leftwing attacks have left far fewer people dead than violence by rightwing extremists https://www.theguardian.com/world/2020/jul/27/us-rightwing-extremists-attacks-deaths-database-leftwing-antifa
  12. The GOP's claim that antifa is infiltrating George Floyd protests is a right-wing 'bogeyman' that bears all the hallmarks of a domestic disinformation campaign https://www.businessinsider.com/trump-republican-allegations-antifa-protest-violence-disinformation-campaign-2020-6?op=1 Rep. Jerry Nadler calls violence from Antifa in Portland a ‘myth’ https://nypost.com/2020/07/27/jerry-nadler-calls-violence-from-antifa-in-portland-a-myth/ 51 Protesters Facing Federal Charges—Yet No Sign Of Antifa Involvement https://www.forbes.com/sites/tommybeer/2020/06/10/51-protester
  13. Imported from another thread. The protest against Milo Yiannopoulos at UC Berkeley In February 2017 was peaceful until the Black Bloc showed up. https://www.cnn.com/2017/02/01/us/milo-yiannopoulos-berkeley/index.html Saying all of Antifa is Black Bloc is like saying all Southern Baptists are in the KKK. I haven’t liked the Black Bloc tactics since the Iraq War protests in 2003. I think they ruined the Occupy General Strike in the fall of 2011.
  14. I apologized for that. You accepted the apology. Now you’re rescinding that acceptance? Oh well. I leave it to the gentle reader to figure out who is making an actual argument.
  15. What an absurd interpretation. If you think violence from leftists has been anywhere near the violence of rightists you haven’t been paying attention. https://www.msnbc.com/deadline-white-house/watch/former-dhs-official-speaks-to-the-growing-threat-of-white-supremacy-and-how-warnings-from-her-department-were-rebuffed-90982981892
