White Nationalist Kicked Out of CPAC

Seems that even conservative’s seemingly bottomless tolerance for racial innuendo and racists has reached its limit.Surprising – since conservatism has been virtually synonymous with racism for such a long time. Richard Spencer gets pimp slapped…Again. SO now we got the alt-right-whites, against the whiter-right-whites…Never ceases to amaze me.

Richard Spencer wants you to know that unlike fellow racist Milo Yiannopoulos who was dis-invited earlier this week …He’s not a pedophile. ind of interesting when someone starts denying something they haven’t been accused of by anyone yet…

White nationalist leader kicked out of CPAC

On his way out, Richard Spencer rebuked Milo Yiannopoulos, who was disinvited from the event earlier this week.

Richard Spencer, a leader of the white nationalist movement, said he was “glad” that disgraced Breitbart editor Milo Yiannopoulos was disinvited from the Conservative Political Action Conference after he made controversial statements on pedophilia, while leaving the conservative conference Thursday after his own credentials had been revoked.

“I totally reject Milo and I’m glad that he was disinvited,” Spencer said about Yiannopoulos, who resigned from Breitbart this week after remarks surfaced in which he praised pedophilia. The right-wing journalist was slated to be keynote speaker at CPAC but was disinvited earlier this week because of the controversy.

“I was willing to tolerate him or maybe be ambivalent about him but after his video clips, there’s no way that I could support Milo in any way.”

Yiannopoulos, who has stirred up controversy in recent weeks with his appearances on college campuses, resigned from Breitbart and lost a major book deal after tapes emerged on which he advocated sexual relationships between “younger boys and older men.”

In his resignation statement, Yiannopoulos said he believed the tapes were selectively edited.

“To repeat: I do not support child abuse,” Yiannopoulos said at a news conference. “I am sorry to other abuse victims who may have interpreted my statements as flippant.”

Spencer, who purchased his own tickets to CPAC, was ejected after a CPAC staffer spotted him and revoked his credentials. Defiant, Spencer flashed his empty lanyard to reporters as he left the Gaylord National Resort and Convention Center just outside D.C., where the conservative confab is taking place over the next few days.

“They threw me out, it’s pathetic,” he said on his way out, saying that he wanted to have conversations inside on identity politics.

“I guess that they just discovered who I was, because the truth is that people want to talk to me, not to other conservatives.”

A CPAC spokesperson told NBC that the group ejected Spencer because it finds his views “repugnant.”

American Conservative Union Chairman Matt Schlapp told POLITICO that it was the group’s right to revoke Spencer’s credentials. “You are welcome to come down here, we will have civil conservation about things we disagree with but there are boundaries, one of those boundaries is having respect for people, people’s heritage, people’s race, and the alt-right is not a voice in the conservative movement,” Schlapp said.

But Spencer fired back: “CPAC cannot host a speech where they denounce the alt-right by name and then expect me not to come. They’re children. I mean, look, adults will engage in dialogue particularly when you’re going to denounce someone. They’re not even engaging in dialogue.”

Spencer, who is the president of the National Policy Institute, a white nationalist think tank, was unsparing in his criticism of Yiannopoulos, who is also considered an alt-right activist.

“He glorified and excused the sexual abuse of other people,” Spencer said. “That is absolutely out of bounds.”

Yiannopoulos brushed off Spencer’s criticisms. “Richard Spencer knows that for the rest of his life his best shot at getting attention is to talk about me,” Yiannopoulos told POLITICO. “I don’t begrudge him the scraps he craves.”

Illegitimately Elected Republicans Find Town Halls a Tough Go

Seems the illegitimately “elected” Republicans are having a tough go at “Town Halls” as the disenfranchised majority begin to fight back.

Republicans won their majority by voter disenfranchisement, gerrymandering, and outright election fraud garnering substantially less than a majority of the vote.

That dirty deal is beginning to come home as in Town Halls across the Red Zone folks are raising hell.

At A Town Hall, Constituents Literally Turn Their Backs On GOP Senator

“Do your job!” they chanted.

Sen. Bill Cassidy (R-La.) was forced to abandon his PowerPoint presentation on the GOP’s Obamacare replacement plan at his town hall in Metairie, Louisiana, on Wednesday, after a packed room of angry voters drowned him out and literally turned their backs on him.

From beginning to end, the event was a disaster for Cassidy. By the time the senator arrived 30 minutes late, voters had already co-opted the town hall and turned it into a rally for the Affordable Care Act. Protesters outside the building held signs demanding that Republicans “Support the ACA” and “Dump Trump,” while the crowd of 180 people inside the room chanted “Shame!” as Cassidy entered.

Cassidy then tried to present a slideshow on his plan to replace the Affordable Care Act, but voters drowned him out with boos and demanded that he take questions from the audience instead of giving them information they could read on the GOP’s website. One woman sat in the front row knitting a pink “pussyhat,” a symbol of the women-led resistance against Trump, and several voters stood up and faced the back of the room to protest the senator’s scripted presentation.

A similar scene has been playing out at Republican town halls all over the country as lawmakers go home to face voters who are skeptical about the GOP’s vague health care plan. The party has not been able to guarantee that the 20 million previously uninsured people who are now covered by Obamacare would be able to stay covered once the health care law is repealed. Some lawmakers, including House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.), have simply chosen to duck the town halls and avoid the testy crowds.

This GOP Lawmaker Just Spent 90 Minutes Getting Yelled At By Constituents

Rep. Leonard Lance (R-N.J.) decided to engage with voters in his district, and ended up getting an earful about President Donald Trump.

Most of Rep. Leonard Lance’s fellow Republican lawmakers have chosen to avoid their constituents during this congressional recess. Lance, who represents New Jersey’s 7th District, made a different choice Wednesday night.

The congressman might have a better understanding of his colleagues’ thinking after enduring more than 90 minutes of hostile questioning from constituents. They were furious about President Donald Trump’s behavior and agenda ― and not very keen to hear their representative recite GOP talking points.

The capacity crowd at Raritan Valley Community College welcomed Lance with applause and sent him off with more at the end. That was about as good as it got for the five-term lawmaker.

“I never use the term yelling,” Lance told reporters afterward. “I thought it was vigorous.”

That it was, but there definitely was yelling. A lot of it.

This town hall lacked the kind of stand-out moment seen at other recent events, including a farmer handing Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) a bottle of antacid, a constituent telling Sen. Bill Cassidy (R-La.) that her cancer-stricken daughter could die if the Affordable Care Act were repealed, or vitriol on a multitude of topics being heaped on Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah).

But Lance, who comfortably secured re-election last year in a district that Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton won by a slender margin over Trump, didn’t have any easy night. He remained affable, even genteel, as the crowd jeered, booed and interrupted his responses to questions randomly chosen from numbered slips of paper.

Republican Vote For Another Virginia Tech Massacre

Twenty-three year old Seung-Hui Cho killed 32 people on the Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University campus in Blacksburg, Virginia, before taking his own life. Cho had been ordered by a court to seek mental health help, and had a history of bizarre behavior and violent threats. Cho picks up a Walther P-22 pistol he purchased online on February 2 from an out-of-state dealer at JND Pawn shop in Blacksburg, across the street from Virginia Tech. Cho purchases a 9mm Glock pistol and 50 rounds of ammunition from Roanoke Firearms for $571. On April 16, 2007 hco murdered 32 people at Virginia Tech.

Now Republicans want to open the “Crazy Peple” loophole up again at the behest of the NRA.

Senate Does NRA’s Bidding, Lets 75,000 Mentally Ill People Buy Guns

Republicans voted to end a policy that sends the names of people unable to work because of ‘severe’ impairments to have their backgrounds checked.

Wednesday morning, the Senate decided to join their brethren and sistren in the House of Representatives and vote to place guns in the hands of people too mentally unstable to manage their own bank accounts. Really.

With every Republican and a few mindless Democrats joining them because “please don’t hurt me, voters, already supporting my opponent” seems like sound strategy, the Senate gave its imprimatur to H.J. Res. 40. This will rollback the Social Security Administration (SSA) policy begun under President Obama to share with our NICS background check system the 75,000 individuals who are unable to work because of “severe mental impairment” and an inability to manage their own Social Security benefits.

No worries—here’s your AR-15!

You might think to yourself, given that we’ve just learned that the Trump Campaign had regular get togethers with Russian intelligence to share secrets and play Twister last year, that the Senate might have something better to do with its time. You might also think that Republican legislators who pretend to support better mental health after each mass shooting would gag at the irony piled upon hypocrisy of passing legislation such as this. But then you’d have to have never observed the people running the majority in both our House and Senate.

When folks out there—usually those who have busy lives and understandably just want Washington to solve our major problems—ask “why can’t both sides just work together and get common sense, moderate legislation passed?”, this is your answer. This is why.

For there’s a legitimate debate to be had about many gun laws proposed by those, like me, who think we need much stricter regulation. It can honestly be contested whether someone who has passed a background check should have the right to an assault weapon, or whether that’s too much military firepower for citizens to possess in a democratic society (my position). There can be legitimate arguments also about how loose or stringent we should make concealed carry laws for legal gun owners. I’d argue that without proven need, a written test and serious time on the range, it’s a no go, but others can make legitimate cases for other positions.

There, however, is no legitimate argument for not requiring that people purchasing firearms do what private babysitting services ask of their employees: a comprehensive background check. Why would any sane society not do every single thing in its power to prevent those who have proven criminally violent or incapable of taking care of themselves from getting their hands on weapons that kill?

US Spy Agencies Withhold Intelligence From Trump Whites Only House Due to Russian Compromise

It would seem that the intelligence agencies consider the White House so corrupted by Russian spies that they are refusing to share intelligence data with the Chump’s people. They believe anything given to the White House will be shared immediately with the Russians, putting our spies and other resources at risk. This is an unprecedented situation, where the NSA considers the President as an agent of a foreign government.

Republicans who are suppressing the investigation into Putin’s ownership of Trump are facilitating treason – and should be charged as accomplices.

The Spy Revolt Against Trump Begins

Intelligence Community pushes back against a White House it considers leaky, untruthful and penetrated by the Kremlin

Image result for trump traitor

In a recent column, I explained how the still-forming Trump administration is already doing serious harm to America’s longstanding global intelligence partnerships. In particular, fears that the White House is too friendly to Moscow are causing close allies to curtail some of their espionage relationships with Washington—a development with grave implications for international security, particularly in the all-important realm of counterterrorism.

Now those concerns are causing problems much closer to home—in fact, inside the Beltway itself. Our Intelligence Community is so worried by the unprecedented problems of the Trump administration—not only do senior officials possess troubling ties to the Kremlin, there are nagging questions about basic competence regarding Team Trump—that it is beginning to withhold intelligence from a White House which our spies do not trust.

That the IC has ample grounds for concern is demonstrated by almost daily revelations of major problems inside the White House, a mere three weeks after the inauguration. The president has repeatedly gone out of his way to antagonize our spies, mocking them and demeaning their work, and Trump’s personal national security guru can’t seem to keep his story straight on vital issues.

That’s Mike Flynn, the retired Army three-star general who now heads the National Security Council. Widely disliked in Washington for his brash personality and preference for conspiracy-theorizing over intelligence facts, Flynn was fired as head of the Defense Intelligence Agency for managerial incompetence and poor judgment—flaws he has brought to the far more powerful and political NSC.

Flynn’s problems with the truth have been laid bare by the growing scandal about his dealings with Moscow. Strange ties to the Kremlin, including Vladimir Putin himself, have dogged Flynn since he left DIA, and concerns about his judgment have risen considerably since it was revealed that after the November 8 election, Flynn repeatedly called the Russian embassy in Washington to discuss the transition. The White House has denied that anything substantive came up in conversations between Flynn and Sergei Kislyak, the Russian ambassador.

That was a lie, as confirmed by an extensively sourced bombshell report in TheWashington Post, which makes clear that Flynn grossly misrepresented his numerous conversations with Kislyak—which turn out to have happened before the election too, part of a regular dialogue with the Russian embassy. To call such an arrangement highly unusual in American politics would be very charitable.

In particular, Flynn and Kislyak discussed the possible lifting of the sanctions President Obama placed on Russia and its intelligence services late last year in retaliation for the Kremlin’s meddling in our 2016 election. In public, Flynn repeatedly denied that any talk of sanctions occurred during his conversations with Russia’s ambassador. Worse, he apparently lied in private too, including to Vice President Mike Pence, who when this scandal broke last month publicly denied that Flynn conducted any sanctions talk with Kislyak. Pence and his staff are reported to be very upset with the national security adviser, who played the vice president for a fool.

It’s debatable whether Flynn broke any laws by conducting unofficial diplomacy with Moscow, then lying about it, and he has now adopted the customary Beltway dodge about the affair, ditching his previous denials in favor of professing he has “no recollection of discussing sanctions,” adding that he “couldn’t be certain that the topic never came up.” That’s not good enough anymore, since the IC knows exactly what Flynn and Kislyak discussed…

Prominent Democrats in Congress are already calling for Flynn to be relieved over this scandal, which at best shows him to be dishonest about important issues. Adam Schiff, the top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, has bluntly askedfor the national security adviser’s ouster. Republicans on the Hill who would prefer that the White House stop lying to the public about its Kremlin links ought to get behind Schiff’s initiative before the scandal gets worse.

In truth, it may already be too late. A new report by CNN indicates that important parts of the infamous spy dossier that professed to shed light on President Trump’s shady Moscow ties have been corroborated by communications intercepts. In other words, SIGINT strikes again, providing key evidence that backs up some of the claims made in that 35-page report compiled by Christopher Steele, a former British intelligence official with extensive Russia experience….

How things are heating up between the White House and the spooks is evidenced by a new report that the CIA has denied a security clearance to one of Flynn’s acolytes. Rob Townley, a former Marine intelligence officer selected to head up the NSC’s Africa desk, was denied a clearance to see Sensitive Compartmented Information (which is required to have access to SIGINT in particular). Why Townley’s SCI was turned down isn’t clear—it could be over personal problems or foreign ties—but the CIA’s stand has been privately denounced by the White House, which views this as a vendetta against Flynn. That the Townley SCI denial was reportedly endorsed by Mike Pompeo, the new CIA director selected by Trump himself, only adds to the pain.

There is more consequential IC pushback happening, too. Our spies have never liked Trump’s lackadaisical attitude toward the President’s Daily Brief, the most sensitive of all IC documents, which the new commander-in-chief has received haphazardly. The president has frequently blown off the PDB altogether, tasking Flynn with condensing it into a one-page summary with no more than nine bullet-points. Some in the IC are relieved by this, but there are pervasive concerns that the president simply isn’t paying attention to intelligence.

In light of this, and out of worries about the White House’s ability to keep secrets, some of our spy agencies have begun withholding intelligence from the Oval Office. Why risk your most sensitive information if the president may ignore it anyway? A senior National Security Agency official explained that NSA was systematically holding back some of the “good stuff” from the White House, in an unprecedented move. For decades, NSA has prepared special reports for the president’s eyes only, containing enormously sensitive intelligence. In the last three weeks, however, NSA has ceased doing this, fearing Trump and his staff cannot keep their best SIGINT secrets…. More Here

Things Getting Tough For Republicans at Town Hall Meetings Back Home

The natives are definitely getting restless with the cover-up of Chumph Treason and numerous illegal acts by Republicans in Congress. Perhaps enough white folks are getting pissed off that it may prove difficult to get reelected in even those scientifically tailored Gerrymandered white-wing districts?

‘Shame, shame!’: GOP aides booed at Georgia constituent meeting after refusing to take questions

Republicans across the country keep getting hammered by protesters who are upset that the party may repeal the Affordable Care Act without any kind of replacement.

On Friday morning, congressional aides for three key Georgia Republicans — U.S. Sens. David Perdue and Johnny Isakson, and Rep. Jody Hice — fled what was billed as a constituents services meeting after getting booed by protesters.

Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that the aides to the lawmakers were overwhelmed when they saw dozens of protesters who were eager to make their voices heard on repealing Obamacare and other key issues.

“About a half-dozen congressional aides briefly addressed the crowd, telling them the event was not a town hall and they would take no questions from the floor,” the AJCreports. “They left after crowd members chanted ‘shame, shame, shame.’”

‘Do your job’: GOP’s Jason Chaffetz blistered by angry voters at town hall demanding Trump oversight

Hundreds of angry Utah residents packed a town hall hosted by Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-UT) — who hasn’t shown much enthusiasm for performing his oversight duties over the White House — and chanted “do your job.”

About 1,500 more people waited outside Brighton High School, holding signs that echoed the chants inside, along with others that read, “America is better than this,” reported The Salt Lake Tribune.

The hostile crowd of about 1,000 people, which the newspaper described as mostly political opponents of the Republican lawmaker, roared “explain yourself” at Chaffetz — and frequently interrupted to express their disapproval at his answers.

“If you want me to answer the question, give me more than five seconds to do it,” Chaffetz said at one point.

Attendees arrived early to get into the event, which they complained the GOP lawmaker had deliberately scheduled at a small venue to limit the pushback he expected to face.

Chaffetz addressed 13 questions, the newspaper reported.

Three of those focused on public lands and four on investigating President Donald Trump in the lawmaker’s role as chairman of the House Oversight Committee.

The other questions covered Planned Parenthood, air quality and Education Secretary Betsy DeVos.

According to news reports, Chaffetz met Tuesday with Trump and Reince Priebus, his White House chief of staff, and the president strongly cautioned the lawmaker against probing his actions as chief executive.

“Before my bum even hit the chair,” the president said no oversight; you can’t talk about anything that has to do with oversight and I said, ‘fair enough,” Chaffetz said, according to the Washington Examiner.

Chaffetz claimed the president encouraged him to investigate anything he wanted when they met a month earlier at the annual Republican retreat in Philadelphia.

The lawmaker said he was looking into comments made by Kellyanne Conway, the president’s senior advisor, who promoted clothing sold by Ivanka Trump during a Fox News interview.

“There’s no case to be made that we went soft on the White House,” Chaffetz told his constituents. “In terms of doing my job, that’s what I’m supposed to be doing.”

One constituent, a woman from Salt Lake City, read Chaffetz’s own words back at him, when he called on all the presidential candidates to release their tax returns — which Trump still refuses to do.

“I’m asking you to explain what your timeline is to uphold your word or why there is a reluctance to do so,” said the woman, Melissa Batka Thomas.

Chaffetz told the woman the president was “exempt” from conflict of interest laws, which he has said before.

“Until there is evidence that he has somehow overused that to ingratiate his family …” Chaffetz said, but he was drowned out in a shower of boos.

Republican Racism on Full Display

One of the thing promoted by white supremacists which has become a core part of the Republican belief set is Reverse Racism. That somehow white folks are the ones being discriminated against.  Like everything else these folks believe  – it is a lie. In this case a racist lie as there is no statistical information whatsoever supporting this.

In this Bill Maher segment, conservative racist bimbo Tomi Lahren gets her ass handed to her…By a fellow conservative as well as Michael Dyson.

‘F*cking crazy’: Rick Wilson slams Tomi Lahren for claim whites are discriminated as much as blacks

Conservative Tomi Lahren was flattened Friday night going up against Bill Maher’s panel of political experts.

Lahren claimed that it wouldn’t matter to her if Donald Trump was black, had three wives and grabbed women like Trump claimed he did. Michael Eric Dyson said that in the hypothetical scenario with “black Trump,” it wouldn’t matter because he would be in jail.

Also see: Maher guest Tomi Lahren struggles to defend Trump’s hypocrisy and ‘bullsh*t tornado’ of promises

Maher read off a statistic that 32 percent of Americans think that discrimination against whites is as bad as discrimination against blacks. Lahren tried to pivot to talking about UC Berkeley’s protests but Maher asked her the question again. She confessed that she does think that it is as bad.

“Since I’m a conservative and not a Trump person, let me say this,” Wilson began. “That’s absurd. That’s f*cking crazy”

Lahren also defended Congress for rescinding President Barack Obama’s executive order making it illegal to dump pollutants in waterways because it means coal miners can have jobs again.

“Why do they have to cling to the worst jobs ever?” Maher asked her. Lahren said that it was all they know, but Maher asked why they couldn’t retrain coal miners and give them jobs that won’t kill them.

“He doesn’t know any coal miners!” former senate candidate Jason Kander cut in. “He knows CEOs of coal companies!”

She argued that Trump knows them because they voted for him en masse. But Kander said Trump doesn’t actually “know” them.

“There’s a kind of hazy nostalgia with Trump’s plan, ‘We’re going to have ironworks and shipyards and coal miners,’” Rick Wilson said. “These are things — we might as well get our buggy-whip industry back together again. It’s this retrospective, fake past that doesn’t exist anymore. And, God bless them, they work their asses off, and you know what, natural gas took their jobs, not Barack Obama.”

Thousands Protest Chumph and Republicans in Pliladelphia

Nowhere to run…nowhere to hide!

The folks in Philly give Putin’s Bitch a proper Philly salute

Demonstrators flood the streets of Philadelphia to protest Donald Trump at GOP retreat

Throngs of protesters took to the streets for the third day of massive protests since Trump’s inauguration

Donald Trump took his first official trip as president aboard a newly rechristened Air Force One Thursday. When the 45th president landed in Philadelphia, he was greeted by throngs of protesters who took to the streets for the third day of massive protests since Trump’s inauguration six days ago.

Protesters had gathered for a second day of demonstrations against congressional Republicans, who were visiting the city of brotherly love for an annual retreat. Trump arrived in Philadelphia to address Republican lawmakers and broke with a long-held bipartisan tradition by refusing to take any questions from the elected officials of his own party.

Amid petty battles over crowd sizes and viewership of his inauguration, Trump has taken to setting the controversial agenda he presented on the campaign trail into motion — leaving Republican congressional leaders in the awkward position of dodging questions about torture, rampant voter fraud and who will pay for a wall on the U.S. – Mexico border.

Partially organized by PA Home Care Workers and SEIU Healthcare Pennsylvania, hundreds of demonstrators protested the GOP’s plan to repeal the Affordable Care Act by holding an activism workshop followed by a march to Thomas Paine Plaza Thursday morning.
