I’m surprised Mike Doocey, of Fox 4, would cancel for that reason, being Fox and all. The other day, Dale Hansen (the sports guy who’s not been shy about calling out people on issues of race or gender), called Jerry out on his statement about kneeling, noting that during the anthem, he not only had a hat on, but wouldn’t take it off when it was pointed out to him (Jones also had this lame hand over heart thing).

Sounds like Doocey was more annoyed at how it was handled, being extremely last minute.

Of course the DEA finds no spillover effect.

We’ve got border towns that have low crime - and aren’t seeing any crime spike because there isn’t one.

It also shows that there isn’t chaos in the US, and there isn’t spillover despite what Trump and his white nationalist advisers want people to think.

I clicked on the opinion writers name to find some background.

She ain’t no goddamned anthropologist nor paleontologist nor does she have any expertise that enables her to put this statement in her opinion piece:

Here’s what’s also true: Prejudice is endemic to humanity itself. Human beings are tribal creatures — we trust the familiar and are drawn to it; we distrust the unfamiliar and keep our distance. White people, liberal and conservative, often claim not to notice another person’s race — “I don’t even see color,” they argue — but it’s just not true.

We are hard-wired to recognize difference and to view it as an aberration. Noticing difference is not the same thing as hating difference, of course, but I’m not talking about vicious white supremacists here. I’m talking only about garden-variety prejudice, the kind that operates at an unconscious level in everyone. And the difference between an unconscious liberal racist and an unconscious conservative racist is only a matter of degree, not a matter of kind.

Sure, we have senses that pick up differences. That makes us good hunter-gatherers and good bird-watchers. It doesn’t force us into racism. This is what allowing ‘citizen scientists’ to talk like experts will get you. Bullshit with a certain shine.

Manafort’s defense, from the WaPo live blog: blame Rick Gates.

For months we have heard pieces of the government’s case against Paul Manafort. Now we know his defense: Blame Richard Gates, his former business partner and deputy.

“This case is about taxes and trust,” defense attorney Thomas Zehnle told the jury. “Mr. Manafort placed his trust in the wrong person … Rick Gates.”

Gates, Zehnle noted, has already pleaded guilty to lying to the U.S. government, yet prosecutors are now telling a jury to believe his testimony.

That live blog is fascinating.

From the defense:

Zehnle said Manafort built “one of the most successful political consulting and government relations shops in Washington,” while also working on “the global stage.”

That work was not partisan, Zehnle said, pointing out that former Bernie Sanders strategist Tad Devine will also testify about working in Ukraine.

Manafort’s work for Yanukovych was to “bring the country closer to Western democracies after decades of Soviet rule” — toward the European Union and away from Russia. That comment was met with audible sneers from a few of those seated in the courtroom.

Pence is here in NYC at a cybersecurity gathering, and he’s busy lying his ass off.

Trump already indicated that he trusts Putin when he said he didn’t hack. Nothing Trumpworld says on the matter can be trusted. Pence and Trump benefited from Russian involvement.

Trump personally called on Russia to hack Clinton.

Russian hackers responded within hours with a renewed effort to try and hack Democrats.

Mueller’s got those receipts too.

And a reminder: Manafort is the one who told Trump to pick Pence for VP. Pence was Trump’s transition chair, along with Flynn.

Flynn took a guilty plea.
Manafort’s on trial (and in jail currently).
Gates took a plea deal (and will be testifying against Manafort in this trial).

Pence is up to his eyeballs in wrongdoing.

They want people to be scared off by the topline figure - but the reality is that MFA would be a cost saver to the nation when you factor all the costs.

Yes, govt spending would go up, but the overall spending would decline significantly and this would benefit all Americans.

Mercatus should be lauded for giving an honest report on the matter. They didn’t bury the report.

Pence is here in NYC at a cybersecurity gathering, and he’s busy lying his ass off.

Trump already indicated that he trusts Putin when he said he didn’t hack. Nothing Trumpworld says on the matter can be trusted. Pence and Trump benefited from Russian involvement.

Trump personally called on Russia to hack Clinton.

Russian hackers responded within hours with a renewed effort to try and hack Democrats.

Mueller’s got those receipts too.

And a reminder: Manafort is the one who told Trump to pick Pence for VP. Pence was Trump’s transition chair, along with Flynn.

Flynn took a guilty plea.
Manafort’s on trial (and in jail currently).
Gates took a plea deal (and will be testifying against Manafort in this trial).

Pence is up to his eyeballs in wrongdoing.

What’s Pence doing at a cybersecurity gathering?

Oh, right, to get info for his Kremlin handlers.

I love this self own by the Koch funded Mercatus Center, which attempted to show that Medicare for all is too stupendously expensive to enact, but showed in its tables that the bill would save over $2 trillion in healthcare expenses over the first decade.

I had to point out the second part in a reply yesterday. Someone just put up “Medicare for All will cost $32 Trillion.” Most people will see that and think that’s for one year, not ten. Most people will also think that it means that they’ll be paying for that IN ADDITION to what they are currently paying. Most people will also not see that it covered everyone. And lots of people are programmed to think “government bad.” Telling them to pay that in taxes rather than to their insurance company will cause them to freak out.

dailykos.com:

Trump administration officials stammered and refused to answer U.S. Sen. Mazie Hirono’s question about whether they would send their own children to the migrant family jails that Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) Matthew Albence tried to claim during a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing Tuesday are like “summer camps.”

“You would send your child to these centers?” the bad-ass from Hawaii asked Trump officials who were testifying about the administration’s barbaric “zero tolerance” policy kidnapping children from parents at the border. “Yes? No?”

“I—I—it’s—that’s a—that’s a difficult question to answer,” stammered Jennifer Higgins of U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), who instead tried to blame parents for their children getting kidnapped, saying that “it’s difficult to put myself in the position of an individual who takes a dangerous journey in which their children would be harmed.”

“Mr. Albence,” Hirono said, moving on to Mr. Summer Camp himself, “would you send your child to [family residential centers]?”

“Again, I think we’re—we’re missing the point,” he replied, taking the baton from Higgins to accuse families fleeing violence of putting themselves into this position.

We get it, guys. Despite the fact that you won’t answer the question, we know that the truth is that not for 10 minutes would you incarcerate your family in these hellholes your administration is trying to pass off as “summer camps,” nor would any other decent human being. And, in carrying out these orders, you’re as guilty as the top officials who created them.

The latest Manafort update:

5:04 p.m.: Devine describes how he came to work with Manafort in Ukraine

Tad Devine, who was Bernie Sanders’ chief strategist in the 2016 election, explained to jurors how he came to work with Paul Manafort in Ukraine. He said his then-partner, Mike Donilon, was contacted by Manafort’s then-partner, Richard Gates, in 2005 about working for the Party of Regions, a pro-Russia political party in Ukraine.

Devine said he has done work in nine countries, and at the time was coming off an international campaign. Donilon, Devine said, was busy with a domestic project, so Devine took the lead and went to Kiev.

“Even though I’m not familiar with the culture or other things in a country, I’m very familiar with campaigns,” Devine said, adding that he specialized in television ads.

Devine said he worked in Ukraine from 2005 to 2010 and returned briefly for a project in 2014. “It was an incredible operation,” he said of his first campaign there. Manafort had hired great people, he said, and had “substantial resources … I was really impressed by him.”

On the importance of financial backing, he said, “If you don’t have a lot of resources, how can you win?”

Devine said he learned from talking to people on his first trip that there had been “a lot of controversy” in Ukraine, including a revolution that forced Viktor Yanukovych, who was part of the Party of Regions, from power.

But he said people “believed Yanukovych had moved on and lost a lot of the people with him” who were controversial, that it was “a new election and a new time.” Yanukovych’s “standing was low,” Devine said, and he was seen as “part of the past.”

Yanukovych became “part of the future” — he was elected Prime Minister in 2006 — because of the “excellent campaign that Paul ran,” Devine said.

Devine described his relationship with Manafort as “friendly” and said he handed over many documents earlier this year in response to a subpoena.

They should also be told their income will go up because a big hunk of their compensation is tied up in pre-tax health insurance premiums (if their employer provides health insurance) and they won’t have deductibles or co-pays to meet, so for the vast majority of people Medicare-for-all is like found money, on top of the piece of mind of not having to worry about losing health insurance.

Staff members at Shiloh admitted to signing off on medications in lieu of a parent, relative or legal guardian, according to Gee’s ruling. Government officials defended this practice, saying they provided these drugs only on “an emergency basis” when a child’s “extreme psychiatric symptoms” became dangerous.

The judge didn’t buy this explanation, pointing to testimony from children who said they were given pills “every morning and every night.” Officials “could not have possibly” administered medications to children on an emergency basis every day, Gee wrote.

Children testified in court filings that staff with the U.S. Office of Refugee Resettlement would sometimes not tell them what drugs they were being given or why. They recalled feeling side effects such as nausea, dizziness, depression and weight gain. Some reported being forcibly injected with drugs, and others said they felt that refusing medications would cause them to be detained longer.

“I witnessed staff members forcefully give medication four times,” one child held at Shiloh, identified as Isabella M., said. “.?.?. Two staff members pinned down the girl .?.?. and a doctor gave her one or two injections.”

My seat mates were a mid-30s woman prepping for an exam and her 6-year-old daughter. I got to play tall helpful gentlemen fetching bags from the overhead bin for the two shorter people.
