Protests concerning the death of George Floyd started at the end of May

    This classic "herding cats" problem is why Joe is a good candidate at a time of national crisis?

    It's also why his V.P. pick is extra important? As to what happens after the election

    BABALOOO! Trump declares himself cross with Vlad...

    Can we hope that the revelation (suppressed for months) that Russian intelligence has been paying the Taliban bounties for dead GI's will rouse Trump to irritation?

    Russia Secretly Offered Afghan Militants Bounties to Kill U.S. Troops, Intelligence Says

    The Trump administration has been deliberating for months about what to do about a stunning intelligence assessment.

    Juggernaut!

    As you read this, AOC has been re-nominated in a blowout win over a Wall Street Republican newly converted to a Democrat who received over 5 million dollars from panicked plutocrats, including Blackstone and Goldman honchos.

    Lifting the stain from my soul...

    Juneteenth...

     

    Not just an African-American holiday of deliverance.

     

    Anyone who has celebrated a Passover knows the enduring power that attaches to the commemoration  of liberation for an oppressed people.

     

    Consider, for a moment, the liberation that also is felt by the oppressor's heirs.

    Strange glitch with Dagblog software just happened

    a comment (a tweet quote) which I tried to post twice on my news thread about deflation numbers here, turns up twice in the running "Recent Comments," but does not appear on the news thread itself. Those entries on "Recent Comments" do take you back to the thread, but the comments themselves do not appear. Just noting the problem in case it happens to someone else.

    Electric Reichstag Bugaloo

    Be on the lookout for Hawaiin Shirts.

     

    Evidently the Brooks Brothers neo nazi uniforms from Charlottesville (ableit tastefully accessorized with indiscretely placed swastica pins) have morphed into Hawaiin Shirts (?1) as garb for the fashionable white supremecist out for a little provacateur ramble.

     

    I call upon my Anonymous comrades to penetrate the communications net that must underlie what I have no doubt is the false flag operation seeking to seize upon this moment as the time to foment the fulfillment of their nutty race war dreams..

     

    The old Krushchev ploy

    One big flaw in conservative thinking along the lines of "laissez faire" attitude to addressing things like inequities and racism in the U.S. system is that their enemies know how to put it to good use:

    DoJ Flynn Kraziness III - The Transcripts

    PS/ The investigation ongoing into Flynn in late 2016 was a counterintelligence investigation; a criminal investigation came later. But the *concepts* undergirding the Logan Act, a criminal statute, are actually even more *richly* in play in a *counterintelligence* investigation.

    Go home

    There was full justification for tonight 's riots. And they shouldn 't have happened..

    We are  partly civilized human beings, most of us  .I certainly don´t include the murderous cop. Heś an ass hole.

    But our protection from   the ass holes fully taking over    is refusing to support them.

    To the question" should I throw this petrol bomb΅'., the answer is ¨go home.΅

     

    Which states most reflect the U.S. as a whole and which are the most atypical?

    What states most closely resemble the US as a whole?

    Here's a list from an algorithm that accounts for race, religion, density, geography, income, education, age, gender and presidential voting.

    Just a reminder - Russian disinfo

    Russian disinformation campaigns thrive on issues that are divisive to Americans. We are just tee'ing things up for nefarious actors to exploit & manipulate our society. We're our own worst enemy. I expect these issues to intensify in the lead up to the November 2020 election.
