Jesse Jackson Sr weighs in

Jesse Jackson Sr weighs in

I should have known better.

Jesse Jackson Sr used to praise Trump and worked with Trump on diversity and affirmative action programs in NYC.

I knew Jackson knew Trump was not a racist.

So I called for a statement from him, and today we got it, and guess what?

In the statement Jackson NEVER answers the question about Trump or his past activities to FIGHT racism — it simply says Jackson disagreed with the President’s remarks on Charlottesville — and his position on Confederate statues. Another liberal cop out. Anyway, here’s the Reverend:

CHICAGO (AFP) – American civil rights pioneer Jesse Jackson on Friday slammed President Donald Trump for insisting anti-racism protesters were equally to blame for the violence at a white supremacist rally last weekend.

Jackson also endorsed removals of Confederate statues and flags, as efforts to shed such symbols accelerated around the country. A Civil War-era monument was at the center of the Virginia rally.

“There is a sense of humiliation, insult by the president equating violent white supremacists, neo-Nazis and the KKK with civil rights demonstrators,” Jackson said at a Chicago news conference.

“One marching to tear the country up. One marching to heal.”

Trump has come under fire from Republicans and Democrats alike for his much-criticized response to the rally in the city of Charlottesville.

In the aftermath, the president lost the support of numerous CEOs and cities across the country decided to remove Confederate symbols from public spaces.
America’s most populous city, New York, announced Thursday that it would remove two busts of Confederate army commanders from the “Hall of Fame for Great Americans” landmark.

Jackson — who marched with Martin Luther King Jr in the 1960s — called such steps “long overdue.”

“The statues must go. The (Confederate) flag must go. One American flag is enough,” Jackson said.

“There are no swastikas flying in Germany today. There are no statues of Hitler in Germany today.”

Mike Miller is right, of course, but not Alt-Right

Mike Miller is right, of course, but not Alt-Right

Mike Miller single handily lobbied to get Maryland Prepaid College Trust – passed years ago — fulfilling a promise to me that he would get it done; and today $3 Billion later, and 300,000 students later, the program is a huge success.

That first moment — when his razor quick mind grasped the importance of our idea – stands out in my mind’s pantheon of important memories. Miller needs little convincing on a topic — or all the persuasion in the world is a complete waste — because he makes up his own mind, quickly and almost always – correctly.

Is he a racist? KKK supporter?

Of course not, he is Maryland’s top Democratic leader in Annapolis for decades now — admitting Trump has a point in his Charlottesville remarks without directly saying that.

Baltimore Sun — Senate President Thomas V. Mike Miller is criticizing the Maryland State House Trust for voting by email to remove the statue of Roger B. Taney from the State House lawn in Annapolis.

Miller says a public meeting should have been held instead.

“This was certainly a matter of such consequence that the transparency of a public meeting and public conversation should have occurred,” Miller wrote Thursday in a letter to Gov. Larry Hogan, who chairs the trust. “This was not an ordinary matter of business before the Trust.”

The State House Trust rarely meets in person, often casting votes by email for matters such as approving new plantings on the grounds or giving the go-ahead for performances in the building.

On Wednesday, State House Trust members were polled by email and three members voted for the Taney statue’s removal: Lt. Gov. Boyd Rutherford, who represents Hogan on the trust; House Speaker Michael E. Busch; and Charles L. Edson, who represents the Maryland Historical Trust. Miller did not vote.

Doug Mayer, a spokesman for Hogan, said “Miller is completely within his right to continue defending Roger Taney. We have to agree to disagree.”

Taney, a Maryland native, was chief justice of the Supreme Court and author of the infamous 1857 Dred Scott decision that upheld slavery and found that black Americans could not be citizens.

The decision has led Taney to be linked to other Confederate leaders.

Miller acknowledged “the inflammatory and derogatory language” and the fallout of the Dred Scott decision. But he noted that Taney also “served with distinction” in a series of public offices, including as a state lawmaker, state attorney general and U.S. attorney general.

Miller also noted that Taney freed his slaves and remained loyal to the Union. Miller said Taney’s “complex history” is often lost amid discussion.
Miller also cited the installation of a statue of late Justice Thurgood Marshall on the opposite side of the State House as “a very public and purposeful compromise to give balance to the State House grounds recognizing our State and our Country have a flawed history.”

Scott Adams is a Genius

Scott Adams is a Genius

…And the U.S. is in a Mass Hysteria Bubble!

People who read my blog, know how troubled I am that there seems to be a difference between the way my liberal friends view the reality of the world and the way I see it today.

This morning I read a blog piece by Scott Adams, the Dilbert genius; that does a brilliant job of explaining just what the hell is really going on in the country since January. If you are unhappy right now, are absolutely sure we have a KKK POTUS, read this — it will change your life.

Entitled “How to know you are in a Mass Hysteria” and is brilliant, funny, and educational all at the same time.

By Scott Adams

History is full of examples of Mass Hysterias. They happen fairly often. The cool thing about mass hysterias is that you don’t know when you are in one. But sometimes the people who are not experiencing the mass hysteria can recognize when others are experiencing one, if they know what to look for.

I’ll teach you what to look for.

A mass hysteria happens when the public gets a wrong idea about something that has strong emotional content and it triggers cognitive dissonance that is often supported by confirmation bias. In other words, people spontaneously hallucinate a whole new (and usually crazy-sounding) reality and believe they see plenty of evidence for it. The Salem Witch Trials are the best-known example of mass hysteria. The McMartin Pre-School case and the Tulip Bulb hysteria are others. The dotcom bubble probably qualifies. We might soon learn that the Russian Collusion story was mass hysteria in hindsight. The curious lack of solid evidence for Russian collusion is a red flag. But we’ll see how that plays out.

The most visible Mass Hysteria of the moment involves the idea that the United States intentionally elected a racist President. If that statement just triggered you, it might mean you are in the Mass Hysteria bubble. The cool part is that you can’t fact-check my claim you are hallucinating if you are actually hallucinating. But you can read my description of the signs of mass hysteria and see if you check off the boxes.

If you’re in the mass hysteria, recognizing you have all the symptoms of hysteria won’t help you be aware you are in it. That’s not how hallucinations work. Instead, your hallucination will automatically rewrite itself to expel any new data that conflicts with its illusions.

But if you are not experiencing mass hysteria, you might be totally confused by the actions of the people who are. They appear to be irrational, but in ways that are hard to define. You can’t tell if they are stupid, unscrupulous, ignorant, mentally ill, emotionally unstable or what. It just looks frickin’ crazy.

The reason you can’t easily identify what-the-hell is going on in the country right now is that a powerful mass hysteria is in play. If you see the signs after I point them out, you’re probably not in the hysteria bubble. If you read this and do NOT see the signs, it probably means you’re trapped inside the mass hysteria bubble.

Here are some signs of mass hysteria. This is my own take on it, but I welcome you to fact-check it with experts on mass hysteria.

1. The trigger event for cognitive dissonance
On November 8th of 2016, half the country learned that everything they believed to be both true and obvious turned out to be wrong. The people who thought Trump had no chance of winning were under the impression they were smart people who understood their country, and politics, and how things work in general. When Trump won, they learned they were wrong. They were so very wrong that they reflexively (because this is how all brains work) rewrote the scripts they were seeing in their minds until it all made sense again. The wrong-about-everything crowd decided that the only way their world made sense, with their egos intact, is that either the Russians helped Trump win or there are far more racists in the country than they imagined, and he is their king. Those were the seeds of the two mass hysterias we witness today.

Trump supporters experienced no trigger event for cognitive dissonance when Trump won. Their worldview was confirmed by observed events.

2. The Ridiculousness of it
One sign of a good mass hysteria is that it sounds bonkers to anyone who is not experiencing it. Imagine your neighbor telling you he thinks the other neighbor is a witch. Or imagine someone saying the local daycare provider is a satanic temple in disguise. Or imagine someone telling you tulip bulbs are more valuable than gold. Crazy stuff.

Compare that to the idea that our president is a Russian puppet. Or that the country accidentally elected a racist who thinks the KKK and Nazis are “fine people.” Crazy stuff.

If you think those examples don’t sound crazy – regardless of the reality – you are probably inside the mass hysteria bubble.

3. The Confirmation Bias
If you are inside the mass hysteria bubble, you probably interpreted President Trump’s initial statement on Charlottesville – which was politically imperfect to say the least – as proof-positive he is a damned racist.

If you are outside the mass hysteria bubble you might have noticed that President Trump never campaigned to be our moral leader. He presented himself as – in his own words “no angel” – with a set of skills he offered to use in the public’s interest. He was big on law and order, and equal justice under the law. But he never offered moral leadership. Voters elected him with that knowledge. Evidently, Republicans don’t depend on politicians for moral leadership. That’s probably a good call.

When the horror in Charlottesville shocked the country, citizens instinctively looked to their president for moral leadership. The president instead provided a generic law and order statement. Under pressure, he later named specific groups and disavowed the racists. He was clearly uncomfortable being our moral lighthouse. That’s probably why he never described his moral leadership as an asset when running for office. We observe that he has never been shy about any other skill he brings to the job, so it probably isn’t an accident when he avoids mentioning any ambitions for moral leadership. If he wanted us to know he would provide that service, I think he would have mentioned it by now.

If you already believed President Trump is a racist, his weak statement about Charlottesville seems like confirmation. But if you believe he never offered moral leadership, only equal treatment under the law, that’s what you saw instead. And you made up your own mind about the morality.

The tricky part here is that any interpretation of what happened could be confirmation bias. But ask yourself which one of these versions sounds less crazy:

1. A sitting president, who is a branding expert, thought it would be a good idea to go easy on murderous Nazis as a way to improve his popularity.
or…

2. The country elected a racist leader who is winking to the KKK and White Supremacists that they have a free pass to start a race war now.
or…

3. A mentally unstable racist clown with conman skills (mostly just lying) eviscerated the Republican primary field and won the presidency. He keeps doing crazy, impulsive racist stuff. But for some reason, the economy is going well, jobs are looking good, North Korea blinked, ISIS is on the ropes, and the Supreme Court got a qualified judge. It was mostly luck.
or…

4. The guy who didn’t offer to be your moral leader didn’t offer any moral leadership, just law and order, applied equally. His critics cleverly and predictably framed it as being soft on Nazis.
One of those narratives is less crazy-sounding than the other. That doesn’t mean the less-crazy one has to be true. But normal stuff happens far more often than crazy stuff. And critics will frame normal stuff as crazy whenever they get a chance.

5. The Oversized Reaction
It would be hard to overreact to a Nazi murder, or to racists marching in the streets with torches. That stuff demands a strong reaction. But if a Republican agrees with you that Nazis are the worst, and you threaten to punch that Republican for not agreeing with you exactly the right way, that might be an oversized reaction.

6. The Insult without supporting argument
When people have actual reasons for disagreeing with you, they offer those reasons without hesitation. Strangers on social media will cheerfully check your facts, your logic, and your assumptions. But when you start seeing ad hominem attacks that offer no reasons at all, that might be a sign that people in the mass hysteria bubble don’t understand what is wrong with your point of view except that it sounds more sensible than their own.

For the past two days I have been disavowing Nazis on Twitter. The most common response from the people who agree with me is that my comic strip sucks and I am ugly.

The mass hysteria signals I described here are not settled science, or anything like it. This is only my take on the topic, based on personal observation and years of experience with hypnosis and other forms of persuasion. I present this filter on the situation as the first step in dissolving the mass hysteria. It isn’t enough, but more persuasion is coming. If you are outside the mass hysteria bubble, you might see what I am doing in this blog as a valuable public service. If you are inside the mass hysteria bubble, I look like a Nazi collaborator.

How do I look to you?

Scott Adams is not a neo-Nazi or a KKK supporter, neither am I and neither is the President, and if you think so, well, I was wrong, you are not mentally unstable, stupid, or unable to read – all thoughts I had – but instead, are in a Mass Hysteria bubble.

It makes more sense then the thought I had — that all my smart liberal friends had actually been stupid all along, vicious haters, and had been disguising it.

I have one friend, a great man, a legend really, that can’t refer to the President without a vicious slur, every single time he speaks and/or writes about POTUS. This friend, an intelligent man, a moral man, a wonderful human being, actually warned me that I could come to serious harm from continuing to support Trump in my blog. In all my life as a reporter/writer, that was a first.

Thank you Scott Adams, I was scared our Democracy was in danger, instead, we’re just in a little Mass Hysteria bubble and need some time for it to wear off. Whew!

Two Former Wasserman Schultz IT Aides Indicted For Conspiracy Against U.S.

Two Former Wasserman Schultz IT Aides Indicted For Conspiracy Against U.S.

This, as predicted here, is just the tip of the iceberg. The Democratic Party and it’s leaders, in the run-up to the last election — committed numerous felony offenses – which are all finally starting to seep out into the open.

Here’s the Daily Caller:

Posted By Luke Rosiak

A federal grand jury Thursday indicted two former information technology (IT) aides of Democratic Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz — Pakistani-born Imran Awan and his wife Hina Alvi — on four counts of conspiracy in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia.

The FBI arrested Awan at Dulles International Airport July 24 as he was preparing to board a flight to Pakistan. When his wife Alvi left the U.S. for Pakistan in March, federal authorities found more than $12,000 in cash hidden in a suitcase. She had withdrawn the couple’s three children from local schools and does not intend to return to the U.S., according to the FBI.

“Defendants AWAN and ALVI did unlawfully, willfully, and knowingly conspire, combine, confederate, and agree with each other to commit offenses against the United States,” including bank fraud, false statements, and unlawful monetary transactions, the indictment said.

An arraignment date has not yet been set, and a spokesman for the U.S. Attorney for the District of Columbia did not immediately respond to The Daily Caller News Foundation Investigative Group’s question about when Hina Alvi would become a fugitive if she does not return to the U.S. voluntarily, or whether officials would seek to extradite her from Pakistan.

In addition to lying on multiple mortgage disclosures, as an affidavit alleged at the time of Imran’s arrest, the indictment claims Hina lied by claiming medical hardship in order to withdraw hundreds of thousands of dollars from a retirement program.

The Awans, three of their relatives and a close friend are the targets of an FBI and U.S. Capitol Police criminal investigation into allegations they committed congressional cybersecurity violations and large-scale theft of congressional property in a scheme that may have begun more than a decade ago.

Disinformation is a threat to our Democracy

Disinformation is a threat to our Democracy

I have friends, multiple, that have contacted me to violently contest my view of what happened in Charlottesville, and after each of these conversations had progressed to a certain point, all of these people ADMITTED, they had not seen the video’s – they were basing their opinion on what others told them happened!

It’s difficult to know what to say to stuff like that — because I did spend a lot of time looking at multiple different views, and watched multiple on-scene interviews, some during the protest. Plus read everything I could lay my hands on, before writing that piece.

I admit I don’t see that well anymore, (a long story, please excuse my typos) but I can see what’s on the TV or monitor in front of me (big screen) and there was just no doubt from what I saw – that every single thing the President said about the march, who was in it, and who was to blame – “both sides” – was entirely correct.

Here’s another viewpoint:

“A reporter for The New York Times, Sheryl Gay Stolberg, tweeted live from the event: “The hard left seemed as hate-filled as alt-right. I saw club-wielding ‘antifa’ beating white nationalists being led out of the park.”

Ooops, that isn’t another viewpoint, is it? In fact, it’s exactly what I saw and what the President reported. To my liberal friends, if you think this left wing reporter is secretly a member of the Alt-Right, you’ve lost your common sense.

Stolberg tweeted that – because that is what she was looking at. Imagine how badly the NYT wants to lie to you, for their own staff person to tweet this, and then their coverage simply not reflect any of this data at all.

This is a much bigger problem than whatever your interpretation is of what Trump said, and I’m very sorry – that you my liberal friends — are somehow blind to all this.

The MSM is manipulating the news in this country every day and we Americans are allowing it. If we continue on this path, it will destroy our Democracy in my lifetime.

Judge Suspended for agreeing with Trump

Judge Suspended for agreeing with Trump

The Left is literally attempting a coup, they want the election undone and they’ll use any tactics necessary to get there. I believe every bit of this nonsense will backfire on them and the Party will get smaller and even weaker in the next mid term. I used to be worried about that, but the Democratic Party’s actions since the election have demonstrated one thing to me clearly, the leaders of the Democratic Party need to be jailed – and/or driven from power at the ballot box — because they are about as interested in helping America, as Putin is.

By Laura Page — This week, an Atlanta judge was suspended upon posting his thoughts about Confederate monuments and so called “anti-fascist” protesters on Facebook. Judge James Hinkle wrote, “It looks like all of the snowflakes have no concept of history. It is what it is. Get over it and move on.” He went on to add, “The nut cases tearing down monuments are equivalent to ISIS destroying history.” He noted that, “Confederate monuments in Virginia have the rear ends of horses facing north.”

Following these posts, Hinkle was told by Gwinnett County’s chief magistrate that he was suspended. Chief Judge Kristina Blum released the following statement: “I have made it clear to all of our judges to conduct themselves in a manner that promotes public confidence in the integrity, impartiality, and fairness of the judiciary. I consider any violation of those principles and policies to be a matter of utmost concern.”

Hinkle, who also served as the mayor of Grayson for over twenty years, previously made his views well known on social media when he posted he was “proud to be a deplorable infidel.” While many have been calling for his permanent removal, Hinkle has stated that he did not see what he did wrong. “But you know,” he went on to say, “with the way things are going in the world today, I guess everything’s controversial.”

Hatch defends Trump

Hatch defends Trump

The Senate’s most honest senator went on the air and told it like it is – POTUS is not a racist AND these attacks are motivated, purposeful and vicious.

Sen. Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, defended President Trump as someone who “doesn’t have a racist bone in his body” as the commander in chief faces backlash over his comments about the violence in Charlottesville over the weekend.

Hatch, who said he spoke with Trump over the phone on the matter, repeated those words throughout an interview with KUTV, a CBS affiliate in Salt Lake City.

“To ascribe racism to the president which some people are trying to do is not only hitting below the belt it’s vicious stuff,” Hatch said. “He’s done a lot to try and help quell racism in this country.”

There are Millions of illegal voters!

Trump was Right Again

Be careful America, Trump is being attacked and lied about for a reason, the collection and use of political power by the opposition. These racial charges are phony, Trump’s record here is clear, and this story below is one of the reasons they needed to make a fuss this week, because Trump has been proven right about something very important to the Democrats and the American public – he may have Won the popular vote!

Trump stated it for the record, he believed there were millions of illegal voters — and he was ridiculed, made fun of, bullied by the MSM, and of course, he was 100% correct.

Here is Investors Business Daily, a very reputable publication with the story:

IBD — Elections: American democracy has a problem — a voting problem. According to a new study of U.S. Census data, America has more registered voters than actual live voters. It’s a troubling fact that puts our nation’s future in peril.

The data come from Judicial Watch’s Election Integrity Project. The group looked at data from 2011 to 2015 produced by the U.S. Census Bureau’s American Community Survey, along with data from the federal Election Assistance Commission.

As reported by the National Review’s Deroy Murdock, who did some numbers-crunching of his own, “some 3.5 million more people are registered to vote in the U.S. than are alive among America’s adult citizens. Such staggering inaccuracy is an engraved invitation to voter fraud.”

Murdock counted Judicial Watch’s state-by-state tally and found that 462 U.S. counties had a registration rate exceeding 100% of all eligible voters. That’s 3.552 million people, who Murdock calls “ghost voters.” And how many people is that? There are 21 states that don’t have that many people.
Nor are these tiny, rural counties or places that don’t have the wherewithal to police their voter rolls.

California, for instance, has 11 counties with more registered voters than actual voters. Perhaps not surprisingly — it is deep-Blue State California, after all — 10 of those counties voted heavily for Hillary Clinton.

Los Angeles County, whose more than 10 million people make it the nation’s most populous county, had 12% more registered voters than live ones, some 707,475 votes. That’s a huge number of possible votes in an election.

But, Murdock notes, “California’s San Diego County earns the enchilada grande. Its 138% registration translates into 810,966 ghost voters.”

State by state, this is an enormous problem that needs to be dealt with seriously. Having so many bogus voters out there is a temptation to voter fraud. In California, where Hillary Clinton racked up a massive majority over Trump, it would have made little difference.

But in other states, and in smaller elections, voter fraud could easily turn elections. A hundred votes here, a hundred votes there, and things could be very different. As a Wikipedia list of close elections shows, since just 2000 there have been literally dozens of elections at the state, local and federal level decided by 100 votes or fewer.

And, in at least two nationally important elections in recent memory, the outcome was decided by a paper-thin margin: In 2000, President Bush beat environmental activist and former Vice President Al Gore by just 538 votes.

Sen. Al Franken, the Minnesota Democrat, won his seat by beating incumbent Sen. Norm Coleman in 2008. Coleman was initially declared the winner the day after the election, with a 726-vote lead over Franken. But after a controversial series of recounts and ballot disqualifications, Franken emerged weeks later with a 225-seat victory.

Franken’s win was enormous, since it gave Democrats filibuster-proof control of the Senate. So, yes, small vote totals matter.

We’re not saying here that Franken cheated, nor, for that matter, that Bush did. But small numbers can have an enormous impact on our nation’s governance. The 3.5 million possible fraudulent ballots that exist are a problem that deserves serious immediate attention. Nothing really hinges on it, of course, except the integrity and honesty of our democratic elections.
