      Outlets should refuse to feed the beast by not airing/covering whatever bs he will spout. They should be tired of being used and punked. They refused to cover important announcements by PBO and the times that they were there, they asked about everything but what the occasion was for. 45 is simply carnival barker in chief.

    Mueller believes he has enough evidence to impanel a grand jury. Don’t know who his targets are but they obviously include more than Flynn and may include Russians.

        Yes, I understand he was a repub. 2 years ago, switched to dem.(talk about a Trojan horse!) and now back to officially being R. If this is 45’s big WV announcement, he has be trumped.

    VATICAN CITY — Two close associates of Pope Francis have accused American Catholic ultraconservatives of making an alliance of “hate” with evangelical Christians to back President Trump, further alienating a group already out of the Vatican’s good graces.

    The authors, writing in a Vatican-vetted journal, singled out Stephen K. Bannon, Mr. Trump’s chief strategist, as a “supporter of an apocalyptic geopolitics” that has stymied action against climate change and exploited fears of migrants and Muslims with calls for “walls and purifying deportations.”

    The article warns that conservative American Catholics have strayed dangerously into the deepening political polarization in the United States. The writers even declare that the worldview of American evangelical and hard-line Catholics, which is based on a literal interpretation of the Bible, is “not too far apart’’ from jihadists.

      Bring them all down any way you can, Mueller! Like the Feds going after the Mafia for tax evasion to bring them down. Easier to track financial dealings than tweets, emails, secret meetings, etc.

          I was a little black girl and teen during the turbulent 60’s through the Viet Nam War, I did not know the history of dapping or even the hand gestures that came before this time, but it was something that was just part of the culture and what mostly the younger, more hip generation did. I’m sitting here recalling the various ones that were popular when I was young. Women stop dapping by the time they are in their 20’s from my observation, but it is something that A-A men do in various forms throughout most of their lives. I remember that awful George Will commenting with disgust about PBO hugging (usually the side hug and bump) sounding-like the old, out-of-touch, wannabe elitist that he is. White folks always first claim disgust with A-A cultural norms, then they appropriate and monetize them. A-A are the only group in this country that is adding to the richness of American English, music, dance, and art. Everything else is mostly an extension of Western European styles. The latest appropriation: I saw a group of Asian dancers and another of white ones trying to do hiplet. Needless to say they did it poorly.

    When will folks learn to listen to Black and Brown people and to take cues from people we suspect and/or deplore. We are not trifling people; we have long memories and do not need to be taken advantage of more than once to learn not to trust the person again. We also know that if a person or an entity is willing to hurt or destroy another, that they can do the same to us, so we given them a wide berth. Too many white people allow themselves to be bamboozled by corporations and the 1% because they think that they are covered by the rarified privilege of the insanely wealthy and powerful. I would feel sorry for them, but their hate for non-whites has been used as a tool to keep to give them a false sense of importance. Result: flat wages, shrinking middle class, feelings of powerlessness, and state and federal governments that do not give a f**k about them. None of this is the fault of POC or any other ethnic groups because we are not the ones in power. They are so stupid and blind that millions of them voted for someone who is making them feel fearful and even more powerless, a man who holds them in contempt (I am waiting for a leaked tape that features him talking about his disdain for them) and conned them from day one. The hypocritical religious groups who believed that he would usher in their version of a theocracy, the wealthy who thought he would de-regulate the financial world so that they could cheat and pillage again, the ones who thought that he would go after all of the “others” that they hate, all caught up in a dark fevered dream whose realization is destroying everything that they wanted. They cry on Twitter, the NY Times and other places about this not being their America, and long for the time when they could ignore the misery of others around them, but can no longer do so because it is now visiting where they live. So much of where we are now could have been avoided if so many did not allow the dank desires of their hearts to cause them to vote for a man who is so unsuited and so compromised and so ignorant. Well, they are reaping what they have sown; no tears or empathy for them.

      This year’s ceremony is going to be lit! Been listening to my now digitalized Lionel Richie cd’s. I used to dance to “Brick House” from his Commodore days in the clubs back in the day. Norman Lear was Mr. Television through the 70’s and the 80’s. I remember how excited and how in disbelief we were when Good Times came to TV. Prior to this, Black people were so seldom on TV that when one showed up the word would go out quickly and everyone would run to see. When The Cosby Show premiered (he had had some shows before this, but this was the first one featuring a family), we almost lost our minds. I remember all of the articles that said that this was unrealistic. There have been wealthy, Black families and communities in this country since before the Revolution, so A-A were not surprised but white commentators lost their minds. All in the Family, Maud, The Jeffersons, were all ground-breaking shows in that they dealt with serious, contemporary issues through comedy. Such great music from Gloria and LL, and beautiful dancing in honor of Ms. de Lavallade. Cannot wait to see the show.

    Just saw a brief news flash so i need additional confirmation on this:

    So is true that Senate is going into a pro-forma session rather than a full recess;

    if true, this would mean that Senate has decided to prevent the homegrown demagogue from doing crazy stuff like firing Special Counsel Mueller;

      August 3, 2017 at 7:02 pm

      Yes…..The Sen from NE said as much last week.
      Remember, The Robert Courts ruled yrs ago that Only Congress can pronounce their end of Session……meaning both Chambers. An unprecedented ruling since Past POTUS since 1789 or so have made recess appointments. When the Black POTUS did it, GOP In Congress Has an issue……Pigmentation & Obstructionism gone amok.

    • August 3, 2017 at 7:04 pm
