Jefferson Davis Sessions Moves to Resegregate Harvard

The usual from the usual Republican racist asses. They aren’t trying to stop Affirmative Action – Jefferson Davis wants to stop any major university from accepting black students.

Just like his POS boss, te white supremacist Chumph.

To be brutally honest – some negroes need to start throwing a few bombs at some of these so called “Civil Rights” groups. Let ’em be on the receiving end for a change.

Same old racist shit, from the same old racist POSs

Trump’s DOJ is targeting affirmative action programs, because it works for conservatives now

Harvard University is the target of a DOJ probe, at the behest of conservatives

The Department of Justice is opening an investigation into Harvard University’s admissions practice thanks to a lawsuit filed by an anti-affirmative action group.

Students for Fair Admissions, a nonprofit group led by conservative legal activist Edward Blum, has accused Harvard University of violating federal civil rights law by limiting the number of Asian-American students it will admit, according to The Wall Street Journal. In order to combat this alleged discrimination, the suit has requested that a federal judge bar the school from factoring race into future undergraduate admissions decisions.

“The Department of Justice takes seriously any potential violation of an individual’s civil and constitutional rights,” Justice Department spokesman Devin O’Malley told Journal. Justice Department officials have now threatened to sue Harvard University if they do not hand over requested documents by Dec. 1 (they were initially due on Nov. 2).

Yet Vanita Gupta, who led the Justice Department’s Civil Rights Division under President Barack Obama, described it as “highly irregular” for the Department of Justice to investigate this case after a similar one had been dismissed by the Department of Education in 2015.

Blum himself became a national figure in 2015 when he worked with a college student named Abigail Fisher in suing the University of Texas — Austin by claiming she had been denied admission because of her race. Yet when the report came out in August that the Justice Department was looking for people to investigate discrimination against white students, Blum insisted he had nothing to do with it.

“My fingerprints are nowhere near any of this. This was brought to my attention when I read The New York Times story,” Blum told Newsweek.

The New Jim Crow – Trump Voter Suppression Appointee

The Chumph’s attacks to reinstitute Jim Crow continue with his appointment of racist whack jobs…

Congress can’t stop Trump from picking Census chief who believes ‘competitive elections are bad for America’

Thomas Brunell – The latest white supremacist POS appointee by the Chumph

The Trump administration appears likely to name Thomas Brunell, a political science professor who believes “competitive elections are bad for America,” to oversee the U.S. Census Bureau.

The University of Texas at Dallas professor has testified more than half a dozen times in favor of Republican efforts to redraw congressional districts — which always seem to target likely Democratic voters, reported Politico.

That would put Brunell — who has no government experience — in position to oversee the 2020 Census, which determines whether states gain or lose electoral voters and seats in the House of Representatives.

The top operational job has traditionally gone to career public servants with a background in statistics, and Congress would have no power to block him.

“If true, it signals an effort by the administration to politicize the Census,” Terri Ann Lowenthal, former co-director of the Census Project, told Politico. “It’s very troubling.”

Lawmakers pushed back when the White House considered Brunell for Census director, which requires Senate confirmation, but deputy director does not.

Brunell– the author of a 2008 book, “Redistricting and Representation: Why Competitive Elections are Bad for America” — has little demonstrable experience in federal statistics or management.

He has argued that partisan districts filled with like-minded voters — which he believes should be called “fair districts” — promote better representation because fewer voters would back losing candidates.

If he’s nominated, Brunell would become the highest-ranking permanent official at the agency.

“This is worse than making him director,” a former high-ranking Commerce Department official told Politico. “There still is going to be hell to pay on the optics. The Democrats and civil rights community will go nuts.”

Another Chumph Lie About Obama Implodes At John Kelly’s Family Expense

Another of the POS Chumph lies, this one embarassing his Chief of Staff John Kelly

The Chumph’s lie – that no other President had called the parents or spouses of our servicemen who had died in the line of duty.

This is not only criminally embarrassing to John Kelly and his family but shows a complete lack of empathy for this honorable man and his family’s feelings to be used as props for the POS’s lies.

The Plastic Patriots waiving their little flags in their false support of our Military who don’t have a problem with this or support the Chumph need to outed for the hypocritical POS’s they are.

John Kelly and his wife sat with Michelle Obama at Gold Star family gathering after son’s death: report

 

President Donald Trump politicized the death of his chief of staff’s son to slur his predecessor — and it appears he may not be telling the whole truth.

Trump claimed Monday that President Barack Obama did not call the families of slain service members, and he suggested Tuesday that the former president had disrespected retired Gen. John Kelly by neglecting to call when his Marine son was killed.

“You could ask General Kelly if he got a call from Obama,” Trump said.

It’s not clear that Obama offered condolences to Kelly by phone, but CNN’s Jeff Zeleny said the retired general and his wife joined first lady Michelle Obama at her table during a White House breakfast for Gold Star families in 2011.

Gen. Kelly and wife attended Gold Star families breakfast at WH in 2011 and sat at Mrs. Obama’s table, person familiar with breakfast says.

The Associated Press confirmed that White House visitor logs showed that the Kelly family attended the event.

“President Obama engaged families of the fallen and wounded warriors throughout his presidency through calls, letters, visits to [Arlington Cemetery], visits to Walter Reed, visits to Dover, and regular meetings with Gold Star families at the White House and across the country,” a former White House official told Politico.

Second Lt. Robert Kelly was killed at age 29 while leading a platoon in Afghanistan in November 2010, and his father delivered a speech four days later about military sacrifices and the troops’ growing isolation from society.

His father has largely avoided speaking publicly about his family’s loss since then, and asked the Marine Corps officer who introduced him ahead of that impassioned speech not to mention his son.

“We are only one of 5,500 American families who have suffered the loss of a child in this war,” Kelly told the Washington Post six years ago. “The death of my boy simply cannot be made to seem any more tragic than the others.”

CNN Finally Works Up the Courage to Fire Their “House Honkey”

CNN has been paying their House Honkey white supremacist and neo confederate Jeffry Lord for on two years now.

Usually offered up as a punching bag :ord has suffered enough psychiatric damage ny now to be considered in a CTE study of professional football players.

Perhaps due to the ceaseless pummeling, he has retreated into white supremacist fantasy land of goose stepping nazis.

That “Immigration” Thing Gets Real

Out here in the country, you get a unique view of what the Chumph’s Storm Troopers have done relative to immigration.

You see…Any crop that can’t be picked by machine is picked by…”illegal” immigrants. Migrant workers.

The above picture is of a local tomato field. It is owned by one of major food producers, Del Monte. This is a large field, I would guess in the 150 acre+ range, normally containing about 3 million tomato plants. The tomatoes grown here go in everything from your spaghetti sauce, tomato sauce, canned tomatoes, and any other product using a tomato puree.

Normally in this part of the world, they plant two crops of tomatoes on these fields, and by July 4th are harvesting the “spring” crop.  There was no spring crop this year. What you are looking at is the long rows of plastic mulch protecting the little tomato plants which are spaced every foot or so. Here is another view.

Noooooo tomatoes! You see, special tractors groom the land, pile the dirt into those long straight mounds, and cover the rows for the plants in plastic.

Then crews of several hundred migrant workers use a little tool which punches through the plastic and plants the baby plants one at a time, a foot apart all the way down that long strip of plastic. When the plants get about a foot tall, the crews come back and insert a tomato stake next to each plant and tie the plant to the stake with a twist tie.

Small problem this year…

No migrant workers.

So Delmonte has lost one crop…And is pretty close to losing a second – wiping out the whole year.

This is a Chumph world with no “Mexicans” (Most of the current Migrant workers aren’t from Mexico, they are from further South, places like El Salvador or Guatemala).

It is the same all over, as I see other food producer fields either fallow, or turned over to machine crops like corn or soy.

So when conservative blowhards like Rich Lowery announce – Trump Is Winning the Immigration Debate …

It’s kinda funny. Tell me that again when product shortages drive the cost of a can of diced tomatoes from $0.99 to $4.00. And that bottle of Ragu starts costing $5.00 this fall.

Just a hint, but you may want to stock up now.

Fear of Flight Crews, Flying the Thugly Skies

America is the only nation in the G20 without a high speed rail system. Instead, we have airlines.

Used to be fun to fly in America…Now it is a chore. Airlines are cramming as many people into a plane as possible. Many have cut the distance between seats to make room for additional rows of seats – further increasing passenger discomfort. Airlines have made it as uncomfortable and difficult as possible to fly – and as such the number of in-air incidents is soaring.

Now they are stealing paid for seats with threats of violence.

Raygun “deregulated” airlines…And flying has gone to shit.

When my little one was small, we frequently bought a seat. The idea being it was safer for a toddler strapped in in car seat which was strapped in to the seat in the event of air turbulence. It is fairly common now that folks are injured by the violent movement of an airplane when it hits and air pocket. There simply is no way to hold a small child for hours in anticipation of an unpredictable event. So United in this case, screwed the safety of this baby to shoehorn another passenger onboard.

Mom feared beating by United employees — so she gave up toddler son’s $1,000 seat to standby passenger

United Airlines has formally apologized to a Hawaii middle school teacher after it forced her to hold her 27-month-old son on her lap for over three hours because it had given away his seat to a standby passenger.

Hawaii News Now reports that Shirley Yamauchi last month had just boarded a flight from Houston to Boston to attend a teachers’ conference when a standby passenger arrived behind her and informed her that he had been given the seat that was supposed to go to her 2-year-old son.

Yamamuchi tried in vain to get the flight attendant to help her resolve this problem, but the attendant told her the flight was full and simply walked away — thus forcing her to hold her young son in her lap for the duration of the flight.

“I had to move my son onto my lap,” she said. “He’s 25 pounds. He’s half my height. I was very uncomfortable. My hand, my left arm was smashed up against the wall. I lost feeling in my legs and left arm.”

Yamamuchi also said that she didn’t press the matter further because she feared United employees would beat her up, as they were infamously shown doing to passenger Dr. David Dao, whose violent removal from a flight from Chicago to Louisville back in April was captured on video.

“I started remembering all those incidents with United on the news,” she said. “The violence. Teeth getting knocked out. I’m Asian. I’m scared and I felt uncomfortable. I didn’t want those things to happen to me.”

United has now issued a formal apology to the woman, who paid $1,000 to secure her son’s ticket three months ago.

“We deeply apologize to Ms. Yamauchi and her son for this experience,” the airline said. “We are refunding her son’s ticket and providing a travel voucher. We are also working with our gate staff to prevent this from happening again.”
