    Hey guys,

    When posting articles, please just post a short one-two paragraph and the link to the article. Don’t post multiple long paragraphs.

    Thanks.

    If this country elects DT in November, the entire country needs to get psychiatric help. He is the prototype of an abuser. There is not an enemy of the US anywhere on the planet that bashes the United States and Americans more than Trump does on a daily basis. Of course, the ultimate irony is they are still slamming PBO for his supposed apology tour which never happened, but now they want to elect a man who bashes this country and us day in and day out? What is WRONG with these people? It has been horrible for months but it is getting worse every single day. I don’t give a damn about his flipflops, I never believed him on anything to begin with, but this constant bashing of the country is driving me over the edge. And in the meantime, the media trashes Clinton who is trying to lift us up. It is sick.

      Thank you, Joy! And this is the way he would run the country if the people of this country are dumb enough to elect him. His friends and donors would get all the plumb positions. It would be a huge grift for him and his sycophants.

    Hello TOD

    I’ve not had one of my better days – lost it with a couple of people who no doubt have forgotten all about it while I feel mumble mumble. THen I see the UK bigot has arrived to support Trump. He has harmed the UK beyond which he has NO idea what he has done & now wants to do the same to the US. Think I’ll go eat worms for a while

      Alycee, what an intersting article! I don’t have any family from that part of the country (that I know of), but what I know about the black side of my family goes back to upstate NY, around the time of the Revolutionary War. This article had some interesting historical facts that might explain some things about our history. Thank you so much for sharing this!

      Happy that HRC stood her ground. The foundation is a fantastic example of the Clinton’s unceasing effort to make a difference to alot of people, in the USA and the greater world. All democratic supporters should stand up and fight. All the outrage is manufactured.

      Why doesn’t CNN focus on Trump’s sleazy business practices such as not paying vendors after receiving services, not turning over his tax returns like other Presidential candidates and huge debts to foreign countries? Good for Secretary Clinton. The Clinton Foundation has done so much good for people all over the world.

    • August 25, 2016 at 9:38 am

      If the things being raised as “issues” now regarding the Clinton Foundation were truly issues, why was the media NOT making a big deal about it WHILE she was SoS? They are highlighting aspects of the organization that help them to paint the drama they need in what would otherwise be a boring general election campaign…trying to ignore the full picture.

      I wonder how much of this is because her name is Clinton and how much because she is a woman. You would think that no other Presidential candidate or SoS had any ties to any charitable (or profit making) organizations. That they are trying to pretend that DT has no potential conflicts of interest is very disingenuous.

    Trump had some idiot from England speak in Jackson last night… ? Saying that the people of America should take down Washington elite ? Or some such nonsense…

    You mean the red coats are coming the red coats are coming.

    So 1814 of trump… Lol

      I’ve never heard of a foreign politician speaking at a Presidential rally before. This is not the norm. Now Trump is using foreign racists to rally for votes. The media should be calling him out for this.

        GM pkayden.

        Judging by my twitter timeline last night, MSM were afire with excitement w/ Farage appearing in (apparently segregated) Mississippi w/DJT.

        MSM gets offended when accused of being complicit with the rise of someone who treats campaigning for the leader of the free world as a vanity project, but that’s how they treat their audience (as a vanity project for themselves, not to educate audience).

      Of course, I forgot whom it was, Luntz maybe, that taught you accuse your opposition of your own weakness to even out the disadvantage.

      It’s called projection, and more Twitter commentary needs to call it out.

      Everything Trump accuses others of doing is actually something HE HIMSELF IS DOING.

    Ann Coulter and Trump’s Can of Worms
    by BooMan
    Thu Aug 25th, 2016 at 08:34:42 AM EST

    I learned a long time ago not take any bait Ann Coulter is offering because that’s how she makes herself rich. But it’s kind of fun to see Josh Marshall having so much fun at her expense. The way Trump “softened” his immigration stance at the same moment that Coulter’s new book was launching was kind of exquisite, considering that the book praises Trump above all for his hardline anti-immigrant stance. Even so, I’d let this whole episode pass without noting if it didn’t tie into something else that was in the news yesterday.

    Here’s how Marshall characterizes Coulter’s discomfort:

    Just today her new book In Trump We Trust was released, a genuflecting, tour de force of leader principle obsequiousness. As many have noted, in the book itself she writes that Trump can do anything, change his position on anything – none of it matters. She and they are that devoted. Everything except shift on immigration.

    So today, the very day her book comes out he shambles his way to embracing the Rubio/Bush ‘Amnesty’ agenda he spent the last year railing against and using as a cudgel to destroy the Republican establishment’s favored ones. She even had an opening book party hosted by Breitbart.

    Already at the book party, photos snapped by Twitters journos showed a sad visage and perhaps a growing thunder …

    That thunder is something Glenn Beck is warning about in his typical apocalyptic tones. He invited Trump voters to call into his show yesterday and explain their support for him, and he seems to have been badly rattled by the experience. He even agreed to go on Lawrence O’Donnell’s MSNBC show last night to talk about it. I guess Beck has a variety of concerns about Trump and his fans, but what’s really got him going is the realization that there are hordes of people out there who took Trump seriously about his mass deportation promises, and they’re going to be irate if Trump doesn’t follow through. To demonstrate the point, let’s look at a caller named “Nate from Virginia.”

    “As long as he does the basic things, the foundational things, which is build a wall, he’s not going to have people like me coming after him,” Nate responded.

    “So if he doesn’t build a wall like China, then he’s in trouble?” Beck said.

    “Oh, he’s in so much trouble,” the caller quickly shot back. “You don’t even understand the backlash of us, the ones who are so frustrated and angry and tired of all the political stuff. We’re going to come after him personally. You know what I mean? We’re going to get him.”

    How Trump Damages Human Intelligence Capabilities
    by Benjamin Haas
    August 25, 2016

    Most of the words that issue from Donald J. Trump’s lips are disjointed nonsense, and his recent “national security” speech was no exception. Occasionally, however, Trump utters a notion that carries a modicum of truth. As a former Army intelligence officer who served in Afghanistan, I can say that this time he was right about one important but seldom-discussed assertion—that the United States should “place a renewed emphasis on human intelligence.”

    Many terrorists are savvy enough to evade other intelligence collection measures, and the “Going Dark” phenomenon provides an opportunity for terrorists to hide behind increasingly sophisticated encryption. Consequently, the United States law enforcement and intelligence communities should embrace and invest in human intelligence (HUMINT).

    Yet, as much as Trump was right to emphasize HUMINT, his own Islamophobic rhetoric and outrageous policy proposals are counterproductive to the goal. When Trump targets Muslims and promotes a culture of fear, he creates an environment—both domestic and foreign—that presents significant challenges for intelligence collectors who need to retain and develop sources.
