Patrick, this repeated post is a little tiring. Simply google/duck-duck-go: "Russia Trump News". There are new stories and small tid-bits practically every 48 hours. Some big, some small. Last week was Facebook.

This week Mueller appears to be on a criminal charges track (and this is Tuesday mind you so it could be a bigger Russia week than last). The investigation just picked a lock and forced their way into a Manafort residence. Slightly odd as Manafort is compliant and his lawyer is at their disposal. This means a judge signed off on their warrant to go search and seize because they believe crimes are/were being committed, or would be covered up, if they went in announced.

And then there are stories like this ... ... or the fact that the RNC is now opening its own wallet to defend Trump.

That's some amazing background in understanding the political forces positioning on this as well.

As to anti-Trump "bullshit" ... that was some UN speech today. (eye roll)

The story is not going to end well, and someone is beginning to understand that, even if the 28% ravenous base isn't seeing the light yet ...

First tragedies in. Senior center, roof collapse, and rescue workers cannot get in. It's a Cat 4 at this point.
Horrible that this is happening all right at night too.

Strategist says

Shame on you, Rew. You are hoping the hurricane does a lot of damage, just so you can blame Trump.

Pretty idiotic to wish ill on anyone. That will always come back to the wisher themselves. You can however find lots of people on the internet saying that the people who disbelieve the warnings, failed to listen to their news and officials, are going to be the ones to suffer most.

I suggest reading carefully what I wrote.

There is no doubt that we, America, are all with Texas tonight.

Obama pardons drug dealers, Trump pardons a sheriff.

You need to dig deeper on those crimes and likely convictions.

you are posting less.

Unfortunately, there are better places to find information and discussions.

Locally there isn't many in judicial and law enforcement circles with anything good to say about Sheriff Arpaio.

Remember Arpaio is one of the first of the "Birthers".

Now a Cat 4. Wow. Very bad news for Texas.

Celebrating a Sheriff found in violation of the 4th and 14th, and given direct court order to stop, and did not. Trump is no law and order 'President'. Red meat to the base.

This is Today:
—Transgender troop ban
—Pardons Arpaio
—Gorka resigns
—N.K. missiles
—Mueller on Flynn and Manafort
—Hurricane Harvey - now a Cat. 4
—Charlottesville - shots fired, police did nothing

Quigley, everyone knows the hurricane was caused by a hacked fidget spinner, made by the Russians, supported by Trump, because it is designed to blow all the illegals back over the border. MAGA

Quigley says

So a hurricane means Trump is wrong? TDS is really fucking with your head dude.

FEMA and state are ready to go, right?
You've got full confidence in this administration to do bumble-f-of anything?
Those fake quotes up there, are essentially things all said by the administration today.


Pray for Texas.

So, how's about the right tries to actually get something done then?

It's much easier to just fly about the country, golfing, and blaming others.
- Trump thinks he is an observer, not a president.
- GOP is in a stranglehold of 25% of the te-party, crazy, US populist idiots. They are still enough afraid of the base ... though it is shrinking.
- - one key demographic is growing for Trump base, though overall shrink occuring: white young males ... those with white identity politic streaks ... are slowing the fading Trump support some.
- Dems are happy to help prevent madness from occuring.

The headlines for today ... and essentially all week. Trump would actually benefit from a government shutdown as the SC would shutdown too. ;)

The "right" is blind to what is occurring, because they are soloed in their media diet. This week was very big for Russia-Trump happenings.

TwoScoopsMcGee says

So yes, a White Supremacist website having substantially fewer signups than it did about a decade ago tells us, for a fact, that it's not growing as rapidly.. Contrary to narrative, it grew faster when Obama was running than when Trump was, exploding the "Trump encourages WS narrative."

Bad use of data and conclusions. Stormfront sign ups are not equivalent to, or the be all and end all, of white supremacy growth and hate group activity in the country. This is like telling me a president is doing an amazing job because the DOW is peaking.

Go deeper:

• What else happened to Stormfront, the site, in 2008?
• What happened to one of its prominent members?

errc says

Or maybe they're tired of sitting behind the CPU bloviating, so they're taking to the streets with guns, ramming their cars into crowds of innocent Americans instead

They are using leaflets, on college campuses as a main recruiting tactic now, and yes much more active in public. They feel they can come out from the shadows now because Trump/politics is seeming to give them a green light: "This isn't white supremacy, this is white identity politics." (OOoops! We waved a swastika ... ignore that.) They are trying to get those vulnerable, lost, white males feeling the "anti-white male diversity" first tinges in college. Think about how many social groups are striving to get new college kids to latch onto them for a sense of belonging. Smart. Religious orgs, military, social clubs, political clubs, even banks ... this is a smart time and place to recruit. People are looking for meaning, identity, and causes to be involved in.

As Stormfront became more in the public main eye, it began to fall in activity. Not surprising. It got squashed because the light shone on it. A few site changes and one major outing in 2008 are what began its fall.

Don't think that that alone is somehow an indication of a decrease of hate activity and white supremacist groups in the US. The indications are that they began an underground recruitment campaign as a backlash against the first black President (a nice motivator coupled with economic woes), and now are out front and center, because of Trump. They are out from under the rocks looking to do harm now. Trump has pulled funding for combatting domestic terror and hate groups.

This isn't just Trump's own making though. Yes. Remember in 09 Obama had to have the FBI retract its findings that right wing domestic terror groups were far more serious in nature and threat than ISIS/Islamic based foreign potential threats. Ask yourself the whys of that retraction, why the administration felt it needed to do that, and you will begin to see how this "grew" and the actual trouble we find ourself in now. Obama didn't pull funding. Did Obama make the right choice and not being more open and forceful in his pursuit of these groups though?

Also, expect the next major rallies we see for white supremacists to look different. Expect the "alt-right white wash" to come out in full as they trim the more "white trash" looking elements, remove nazi emblems, and slogans.

Don't be fooled. It's the same alt-right.
Don't be fooled. This domestic threat is greater than it has ever been in about 50 years. (AND Russia ... still very much a thing.(wink))

Look to the parallels in terrorist organizations and gangs and you will see the familiar trappings here. This is not something any sane mainstream American political group should embrace. If it supports you, and you are going to meekly speak out and receive that support, I think that is pretty despicable.

By that, you've left yourself no real outs when the next right wing violence hits us ... man.

That's not reporting a timeline of events of occurrence. It's simply an opinion piece from some low information religious blog. I got to paragraph three. Done there, because it ignores what occurred Friday night, which had no permit, and again ... Nazis beat people.

"Unite The Right" was never going to be, nor was it, a peaceful free speech expression.

ACLU has since changed some policy because of it. They will be more careful who they help win cases in court now. ;)

I love the Seattle PD trolling Alex right now. It's hilarious.

Jones is a laughing stock right now all over the net.

Also, we will get the "Democrats overreacted, the statues thing doesn't matter, yada-yadda" analysis. Expected. Trump will still maintain some level of GOP support as well.

Just remember, Nixon had around 25% approval when he was ousted.

Trump lost 20% of his GOP support by early polling, and more is going to fall because of what he said yesterday in tweets. :)

Bannon is now on the outs, he looks like he might go form stronger alt-right pushes again, against Trump.

Trump has run out of allies. This administration cannibalized itself and then supported Nazis.

mell says

causing mass hysteria amongst the leftoids is now considered a crime.

I think you greatly underestimate who has just turned against Trump. This, again, is not a wedge issue.

His arts council just mass resigned today. His business council ... gone. Most republican representatives just spoke out against him, 12 with enough courage to call him out by name. Mitt Romney just fired his opening salvo for 2020 primary challenge.

Again, this isn't a wedge partisan issue we are talking about. On the 15th, something shifted. There will be careful political calculators too, but Trump is now a pariah.
