"Jeremy Christian is a known right wing extremist and white supremacist. On April 29, Christian showed up to the right-wing "March for Free Speech" on 82nd Avenue in Montavilla with a baseball bat in an attempt to assault left-wing protesters. [ ] A few Portland police officers on April 29 appeared to be familiar with Christian, but not threatened by him. They claimed he had a head injury and was mentally ill."View detail

Breaking: white terror is bad for business."Container trucks were backed up all around the port and on Interstate 880. ( ) An unspecified number of nooses have been discovered at the terminal in recent weeks...on a fence, the ground, and on trucks.“We believe it’s a bonafide health and safety issue because of the history behind the noose and what it means for black people in America. This is a dangerous occupation already.”Thanks for sharing, Rachel LedermanView detail

"look at how many times we read or hear reports that the United States has bombed a wedding party or a funeral. And there is never a description of, well, who was the bride, who was the groom, you know, who were the people that were killed, and what were their dreams. It’s unfathomable to me that if we had a wedding party in the United States that was somehow bombed in a terrorist incident, that we wouldn’t know the names of every single person who was killed... where the people were going to go on their honeymoon...what the bride looked like when she was preparing for it."View detail

Five words that Jamaica Kincaid spoke, in Stockholm Central Library, at the inaugural WALTIC in 2008, upended the foundations of my being. That's not hyperbole. For those five words, and all the others, I am eternally in her debt. Happy birthday, Professor Kincaid. Thank you for speaking, and writing, to free us all.Thanks for sharing, Sarah Caterpillarwings GodsellView detail

On Kushner/Russia, I've been reading and connecting the dots around "Russia's largest oil deal ever" in December and possible undisclosed sanctions quid-pro-quo corruption. Follow the money, the oil, and Kushner's spy link to the Kremlin. [With some help, I think I have a connection between the alleged MI6 dossier's "19% stake" promised during the campaign, the Dec. deal for 19%, and potentially how it is getting transfered through shell companies and the Caymans to... whom?] A timeline:View detail

Breaking from NY Times, not the Onion: Trump's bombshell admission of obstruction of justice in meeting with the Russians. “I just fired the head of the F.B.I. He was crazy, a real nut job,” Mr. Trump said, according to the document, which was read to The New York Times by an American official. “I faced great pressure because of Russia. That’s taken off.” Mr. Trump added, “I’m not under investigation.”View detail
The rumor is Trump will nominate Joe Lieberman to be FBI Director

The rumor is Trump will nominate Joe Lieberman to be FBI Director. Outrageous. He is too partisan, too inexperienced for this particular job and this moment, has too many axes to grind, and he is professionally compromised by ethical breaches and firm links to the Trump campaign and Trump casinos:View detail
Rosenstein appoints Mueller to be special prosecutor? Mueller is 100% the real deal
28/06/2017 Reviews (20)
Rosenstein appoints Mueller to be special prosecutor? Mueller is 100% the real deal. Legit nonpartisan FBI director under W and Obama. Trump should resign today and beg Pence for a pardon. He is done. And Rod Rosenstein salvaged his reputation. Seriously, this is the beginning of the end, folks. [More like, the end of the beginning, h/t Richard Bernstein]. This story on his role in 2004 is a must read:View detail

Trump tweeted just now: "James Comey better hope that there are no "tapes" of our conversations before he starts leaking to the press!" This threat probably falls short of illegal witness intimidation, but is he trying to appear as Nixonian as possible? Or is he so ignorant of all history that he has no idea how damaging this reference is politically? Probably the latter. Sincerely, I think we are getting closer to a tipping point where Congressional Republicans will see that they are quickly sinking on the Trump ship, and they are better off jumping ship to Pence. [Update: I researched and...View detail
