Stocking the swamp.

 TWEET MEI was talking to a friend of mine today who happens to be black and works in law enforcement, and she told me in no uncertain terms that she was going to vote for Donald trump. Of course I wanted to know why. "A black person supporting Donald trump? Isn't that like a Turkey supporting Thanksgiving?" I was serious. I just couldn't understand that line of thinking. She then proceeded to tell me how the democrats want to defund police departments, how Donald trump is a friend of law enforcement, and how Joe Biden will cuddle criminals. I tried to explain and reason with her, but I could tell it was too late. The trump propaganda machine had already done it's job. 

Of course this young lady worked in law enforcement, and trump's us against them campaign has her thinking that as a law enforcement official she has to ride with team trump or lose her way of making a living. 

The irony of all this, of course, is that Donald trump is the most lawless president in the history of the United States. Just look at the people he surrounded himself with during his rise to power. Most of them are either in jail, served time in jail, or pled to crimes they committed. 

Today, yet another one of trump's cohorts was charged with a crime. 

"Washington — Former White House adviser Stephen Bannon has pleaded not guilty to charges of wire fraud and money laundering Thursday, after federal prosecutors in New York announced that Bannon and three others were indicted for allegedly defrauding donors to a $25 million fundraising campaign to build a wall along the southern border. 

Acting U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York Audrey Strauss said Bannon, Brian Kolfage, Andrew Badolato and Timothy Shea were arrested Thursday morning. Bannon was taken into custody by agents from the U.S. Postal Service off the coast of Connecticut on a 152-foot yacht registered to exiled Chinese billionaire Guo Wengui, law enforcement sources said. The indictment was unsealed Thursday morning. 

Bannon was released on $5 million bond Thursday afternoon, and must forfeit his passport. He can only travel to D.C., Maryland, Connecticut for work, and the Eastern and Southern district of New York."

It doesn't get anymore swampy than this, folks. Defrauding donors who wanted to build a wall because their political leader told them that it was the thing to do. 

Today Mr. trump denied knowing of the scheme, but I am sure we will soon learn that he is lying. It fits his modus operandi. We will see how far he throws Mr. Bannon under the bus. Or, if as he did with Roger Stone, he promises him  pardon if he is convicted.

"I haven’t been dealing with him at all. I know nothing about the project other than I didn’t like what I read about it,” Trump said. “I thought that was a project that was being done for showboating reasons. I don’t know that he was in charge. I didn’t know any of the other people either, but it’s sad. It’s very sad.”

After that, a reporter confronted Trump with a list of his former allies and campaign officials who have been convicted for criminal conduct over the course of his presidency. Specifically, the president was asked “what’s it say about your judgment” that he has a “culture of lawlessness” surrounding himself.

Trump dodged the question at first to speak about “the great lawlessness in the Obama administration,” but then he went back to stress that he was not involved in Bannon’s crowdfunding campaign. He went on to claim “we built a very powerful wall,” continued to disown Bannon’s campaign, and said the wall should be made by the government rather than a privately financed endeavor."

That didn't take long.

Anyhoo, anybody know when trump's health care plan is coming? It's been over 4 years, he said it was coming in two weeks over two weeks ago. Maybe he's lying?

Of course he's lying. Kris the fuck Kobach got him to "give his blessing" to the project when it began. There's always a tweet.

"Bannon was taken into custody by agents from the U.S. Postal Service off the coast of Connecticut on a 152-foot yacht registered to exiled Chinese billionaire Guo Wengui, law enforcement sources said."

People use the word karma incorrectly to describe stuff like this.
Karma means destiny. This is good old fashioned poetic justice.
Smart crooks have long known better than to fuck with investigators from the USPS, who have the most investigatory leeway of any law enforcement. Bannon is not a smart anything, let alone crook.

As opposed to Trump's official wall which is ... not showboating at all. When is Mexico gonna pay for it again?

Doug, I have found some similar but broader definitions of Karma than what you have described here.

1. As you sow, so shall you reap. To receive happiness, peace, love, and friendship, one must BE happy, peaceful, loving, and a true friend.

2. Whatever one puts out into the Universe will come back to them.

3. The sum and the consequences of a person's actions during successive phases of existence....

Given the struggle with perceiving the meaning of the phrase "defund the police" I'm wondering whether we're not seeing another instance of cultural jujitsu wherein the very thing (notion or phrase or whatever) chosen to represent resistance to a hegemonic dynamic ends up (inadvertantly) creating support for it.

Our culture is well and truly skilled at such maneuvers.

Racism (and other isms of oppression) haven't lasted as long as they have just because of "bad people". I suspect many of us are deluded by our culture in ways we don't recognize.

My brother-in-law, who has African heritage, voted for Trump in the last election. I've tried to explain to him that Republicans are not friends of the working class. But, apparently, the politics of hate appeals to him. He thinks immigrants are a major problem and the border wall is a great idea.

Ed's Black Brother-in-Law said...

"He thinks immigrants are a major problem and the border wall is a great idea."

Unsustainable levels of mass immigration coupled with anti-assimilationist policies and the inculcation of hostility toward the legacy population is a problem. The common culture is being dismantled and the middle class is being destroyed by the lowering of wages as the labor supply explodes.

We can see the results as our country is being torn apart by increasingly extreme and hateful political movements.

It is time for a moratorium on all immigration to give all the people here now the opportunity to form a common culture, whatever that might look like. The country most certainly will not survive the Democrat plan to import 100 million new people this decade.

That's why I'm voting for Trump again in 2020.

Ed said...

"... Democrat plan to import 100 million new people"

That's pure nonsense and another Republican lie. Just like you're lying about being my brother-in-law.

Anyone with common sense knows Republicans are grifters who entice imbeciles to vote for them. If you're a single issue voter, they have your number.

Attempts at immigration reform have been blocked by Republicans to maintain this wedge issue to keep racists stirred-up. Trump took full advantage of that, coming down the escalator in 2015 and calling Mexicans rapists. Ironic since Trump is the real rapist - underage girls and all.

It's especially laughable to see someone like "Put Y'All Back in CHAINZZZ" Joe Biden pushed as some kind of unifying figure, at the head of a deeply totalitarian party with an entirely compulsive agenda. They couldn't stop telling us how "dark" and evil we all are.

But nobody else is, or should be, presented as some great unifier either. We have some great and significant divisions to work out. We have to learn how to live with some disagreements that may be irreconcilable. We deserve better than to be patronized as squabbling children.

Our public servants are supposed to be just that: SERVANTS. They don't settle our arguments and force some phony manufactured "consensus" on us. They don't get to decide whose inalienable rights should be alienated. Free people don't need a national Mommy or Daddy.

And you can't get around how bitterly divisive the Democrat agenda is, how even NOW they refuse to denounce political violence for the "right" causes. They're not looking for "unity," they're hoping for a conquest. There's nothing in life they don't want to politicize.

Trump is more honest about what a politician is, and the overall public reaction to him is healthier. And for all of his bluster, all his rhetoric, he's a fundamentally HUMBLE chief executive. The most unlikely messenger of humility imaginable, sure, but these are unlikely times.

Trump respects the boundaries of his office more than most of his predecessors, and he damn well lacks the hubris of his predecessor. Trump lashes out at his adversaries - far more than he really should - but he always speaks of the American people with reverence.

The clarifying moment of 2016 was Hillary's ugly "Basket of Deplorables" crack, and it's the clarifying moment of 2020 too. Her party absolutely still sees America that way. They just spent several days proving it at their condescending, arrogant convention.

You won't find a speck of real humility in that whole DNC, aside from the odd transparently phony rhetorical jab at loving America, using stale rhetoric that was probably first banged onto mimeograph paper with a manual typewriter 50 years ago.

The entire Dem platform is about what a broken country America is, how it can only be fixed through their wise stewardship, how we can't be trusted to make ANY of the important decisions for ourselves, how we're all guilty and need punishment, how only they can bring "justice."

An awful lot of what the elite sneeringly deride as populism or nationalism is really humility - above all the fundamental humility of understanding that an American president's solemn duty is to the American people, ALL of them.

All I hear is Democrats telling us that foreign nationals are better than we are, that they should have our jobs and enjoy taxpayer-funded benefits, that we should obey some "world community" instead of pursuing our own interests, that our history and culture are garbage.

Not a one of them would be capable of saying the sort of thing that comes to Trump easily about the value of America, her people, her history, economy, and culture. Trump could annihilate Biden in a debate just by daring him to say those things.

Unlikely agent of humility indeed! It's hard to think of many people who have a higher opinion of themselves than Donald Trump. But he keeps saying he has an even higher opinion of America, and he sounds like he means it. More importantly, he ACTS like he means it.

No clear data as to how many Americans are buying this, "Law and Order President," but it does seem to be working on the majority of police officer's associations. This can be a force at the polls with the, "Cops Voting Guide," pamphlets.

The law and order angle also provides convenient cover for the racist dog whistles. Black Lives Matter protestors are painted in the same brush as dangerous anarchists. The worst anti-police violence is always ascribed to Soros-funded and well-organized Antifa by such news outlets as the UK's Daily Mail and local newspapers across the U.S. without a shred of evidence to connect Antifa.

It's a strong motivator in our society. Trump is playing it well. As violent youth seem to purposefully play right into his hands.

Flying Junior said...

I was trying to tie the topic back to Field's recent post about how Trump is betting the farm that Americans are still deeply racist. The crazed couple that brandished firearms at passing protestors have been given a speaking role in the RNC convention for heaven's sake.

Recent protests that have taken place since June had an epicenter in Minneapolis following the violent death of George Floyd. Fact-finding organizations have pored over arrest records and statements of individuals arrested for committing acts of violence. There has been scant evidence of Antifa playing any role at all in the unrest. Yet Trump has been tweeting daily assigning violence to Antifa, I say again without any evidence. It is very important to right-wing hate groups and the alt-right activists to have Antifa classified as a terrorist organization. They will pump out disinformation to that end.

So it's a shadowy world with some bad players. Much violence has been perpetrated by local agitators with no affiliation to a philosophy such as Antifa or Black Lives Matter. What's more these alt-right groups may impersonate Antifa with fake Twitter accounts. It's difficult to know exactly what is true.

But as for me, I'm going to take anything that Trump says with a big rock of salt. I don't trust that guy to give me change for a five.

Ironically Black Lives Matter and Antifa are some of the most beautiful people living in the U.S. today. But the right-wing crazies love to pore over hours of raw footage until they can find some black people saying something stupid or maybe making themselves a nuisance and these sick fucks post the videos and send them to each other with their amplifying words of hate. I see it every day. And I'm guessing I don't even see the worst of it from the hardcore 4chan and the most dangerous right-wing groups and hate websites.

I don't want any part of it. We do need to hold police departments more responsible for the actions of their officers. This is no time to double down and deny the legitimate right of the protestors to speak out.

Sounds like it's a real struggle for you to muster up enough delusion to be able to deny that large portions of our major cities were just burned down by terrorist groups associated with the Democratic Party, and that this criminal destruction by BLM and Antifa has been aided and abetted by Democrat city and state governments.

Not only is this wide-scale, open violence denied to have happened, but it is simultaneously blamed on "shadowy players" associated with marginal groups on the right.

Greatness is over-rated. Only a few can be great, and then only briefly; almost anyone can be good enough, for their whole lives. Therefore the good is a better bet than the best.

"What has Trump done since 2016 that has adversely affected the lives of black people? Was it increasing their employment numbers and wages to record levels? Or releasing tens of thousands from prison?"

Well, let's see trump reversed environmental regulations that will increase air pollution and toxic waste in poor communities that will cause thousands of deaths according to a study conducted by the EPA, he did not follow the viral outbreak playbook left by the Obama administration that would have save thousands of lives, the viral outbreak which he failed to prevent now cost millions of jobs and created the worst GDP quarter in over a century. Black employment and wages had larger increases during the Obama administration and that carried over into the trump administration but guess what? As if following everything trump does the economy and job gains crashed and we now see record deficits. Oh that's right, we only care about deficits when Dems are in office right?

"The risks to public health and the environment from climate change are substantial and far-reaching. Scientists warn that carbon pollution and resulting climate change are expected to lead to more intense hurricanes and storms, heavier and more frequent flooding, increased drought, and more severe wildfires - events that can cause deaths, injuries, and billions of dollars of damage to property and the nation’s infrastructure."

trump thinks climate change is a Chinese hoax which endagers all of us.

"Everyone is talking about Joe Biden and Kamala Harris's speeches at the Democratic National Convention this past week as being a return of empathy or decency, but I'd go one further with another overarching theme: "Remember sanity?" It was truly like watching a funhouse mirror version of our reality, except it took the warped world around us and made it look natural again. It was honestly like you could exhale and not just wonder what insane shit might follow after the last round of insane shit."

Speaking of built, I hear they've thawed out Ms trumpenstein and have already attached the head. They are still looking for a few more parts, but they're hoping she'll be up and running by Tuesday morning. Plenty of time to the rewrite the DNC nomination speech delivered by the best FLOTUS of all time, Mrs Michelle Obama and upload it to its cpu.

9:04 PM
-------------------
We will never know because there is no china virus. There is COVID19, currently believed to have first appeared in China.

Now if you are talking about COVID 19. you must look at population density and square miles in a state when comparing infection rates according to the experts in that field. Although New Your state has about twenty thousand more deaths than Florida, it's population density is higher (421 per sq. versus 353 in Florida). In addition, New York state contains 21,002 fewer square miles than Florida. (NY 47,126 sq. miles versus 65,755 in Florida).

Therefore deciding who should write the "Mission Accomplished book is not as simple as it seems. Adding to the difficulties in deciding is the fact that the virus was unknown when New Yorkers became infected, so there were few facts available relating to how to deal with it. Florida has benefited from what we learned about the virus from New York and other states with earlier cases.

I don't think critical thinking is one of your skills.

"There is COVID19, currently believed to have first appeared in China."

So, a China virus.

I don't think you know what "critical thinking" means.

Paradoctor said...

Virologists have long ago abandoned naming viruses after where they first appeared, because that practice had a long history of inaccuracy. ("Spanish Flu", for instance, because the Spanish press was free to talk about it, not being under censorship.) Also, naming the geographic origin of a pandemic does not help with treatment.

The present pandemic virus is officially named SARS CoV-19; meaning 'severe acute respiratory syndrome, corona virus, 2019'. It started in China, perhaps via a bat or a pangolin; but it's in America now. 25% of all world cases, 4% of the world population; shall we call it "America virus"? This public-health failure was caused by the Trump administration's depraved indifference.

Paradoctor said...

By the way, because of Trump, we _do_ have a wall now; and it completely surrounds the USA; and it's made of virus and pariah status; but its purpose is not to keep Mexicans out, but Americans in.

11:35 PM
----------------------
There is no absolute proof that COVID19 is a China virus. No one knows for sure where it originated. Just like the origination of the flu that swept the world in 1918 is not know with any certainty. It was called the Spanish Flu, but it did not originate in Spain.

So I'm the one who can't think critically? Maybe if you explored the topic of pandemics before you write about it, you would sound more intelligent.

GOP CONVENTION Had Fewer First Night Viewers Than Democrats

August 25, 2020 at 12:36 pm EDT By Taegan Goddard 268 Comments

“The first night of the Republican National Convention was down a touch in total viewership on the first night of the Democratic National Convention,” Variety reports.

“Across the three broadcast networks, the RNC night 1 drew around 4.9 million total viewers, a 14% drop from last Monday’s DNC first night which drew 5.7 million.”

“The fuller ratings picture for the RNC night 1 will become clearer later in the day when the cable news numbers will also be factored in.”
==================
Seems the trolls are all over the web claiming the Democrats had fewer viewers than the Republicans. Just lying as usual.
