  • The keynote speaker at the Republican Party convention is going to be Bob Knight.


    How many thousands of Republicans turned Tele-Promptr Trump No, He** No, or never returned his calls.

    Donald Trump’s campaign aides are lining up a slate of iconic sports figures to appear at the convention in Cleveland next month—including former undisputed world heavyweight champion Mike Tyson, legendary Chicago Bears coach Mike Ditka, former Indiana University basketball coach Bobby Knight, and NASCAR chief Brian France, people familiar with the planning told Bloomberg Politics.
    How the U.S. Elects Its Presidents
    Talks are in the works with a broad slate of other celebrities and top athletes, so the list of those appearing at the convention will grow, organizers said.
    But much of Trump’s current list of sports champs seems to be more targeted at male voters age 45 and older, rather than minority and female voters.
    Trump has boasted in the past about his endorsement by Tyson, who has re-emerged in popular culture in recent years with roles in popular movies like “Hangover” and the publishing of a well-received memoir.
    “Mike Tyson endorsed me, I love it,” Trump said in April in Indiana. “You know, all the tough guys endorse me. I like that.”
    Following the Indiana rally, Trump was criticized for touting the endorsement of the former boxer, who had served three years in prison after being convicted in the state for raping a beauty pageant contestant.

  • Tele-Promptr Donals gave an oddly petulant speech that sounded like someone had put the least interesting lines of old George Will columns into a burlap sack and pulled them back out again in no particular order.

    He obviously didn't write it; it wasn't his cadence, it wasn't his content, it had approximately zip to do with any of his other speeches or with his central election theme of everybody but Donald Trump being "stupid" and "losers." Instead, Donald Trump talked in vague, ghostwritten wisps about the TPP. Donald Trump obediently talked about NAFTA. Donald Trump dutifully read both things off of the teleprompter with all the charisma of a child giving a book report based on someone else's notes.

    What Donald Trump's new handlers have decided, apparently, is that if Donald Trump is going to not embarrass the party he's going to have to read speeches prepared by someone else, read in locations Donald Trump would ordinarily not be caught dead in, all delivered after someone spiked his lunchtime drink with enough animal tranquilizer to drop a bull elephant. To say the resulting speech was low-energy would be an understatement—the audience responded with all the enthusiasm of mall shoppers wandering by a vacuum cleaner demonstration.

  • The Federal Elections Commission is very clear on the fact that foreign nationals cannot legally donate to candidates in the United States. The reason is pretty simple—they don’t want U.S. elections to be influenced by outside money. That apparently didn’t stop the Trump campaign from sending a fundraising solicitation to Scottish Parliament members. The email was from Donald Trump, Jr., on behalf of his father. Scottish Member of Parliament Natalie McGarry was repulsed by Trump’s “repugnant campaign” and she fiercely replied back with a public flogging. Her tweet is below. I’ve recreated her responding email for easy reading. Enjoy!

    Dear Donald J. Trump Jr.

    Quite why you think it appropriate to write emails to UK parliamentarians with a begging bowl for your father’s repugnant campaign is completely beyond me.

    Given his rhetoric on migrants, refugees and immigration, it seems quite extraordinary that he would be asking foreign nationals for money; especially people who view his dangerous divisiveness with horror.

    The U.S. elections are a matter for the American people, but I do send my hope that they reject your father fundamentally at the ballot box, not just to protect and improve the cohesion in society, to stop his corrosive othering of immigrants and for the protection of hard fought women’s rights in the U.S. but also, selfishly, for world security, and international relations. The thought of his reactionary type of politics and apparent ignorance of world affairs having access to a seat at the world table is both surreal, and terrifying.

    The above is a long way to say No, and do not contact me again.

  • No surprises here.

    In May, under pressure from the news media, Donald Trump made good on a pledge he made four months earlier: He gave $1 million to a nonprofit group helping veterans’ families.

    Before that, however, when was the last time that Trump gave any of his own money to a charity?

    If Trump stands by his promises, such donations should be occurring all the time. In the past 15 years, Trump has promised to donate earnings from a wide variety of his money-making enterprises: “The Apprentice.” Trump Vodka. Trump University. A book. Another book. If he honored all those pledges, Trump’s gifts to charity would have topped $8.5 million.

    But in that time, public records show, Trump donated about $2.8 million — less than a third of the pledged figure — through a foundation set up to give his money away. And there is no evidence that Trump has given to his foundation lately: The last record of any gift from him to his foundation was in 2008.

  • HAAAAAA!!!! Imagine white males "knowing" whats best for women's health here in Texas.

    Justice Stephen Breyer’s majority opinion in Whole Woman’s Health v. Hellerstedt clearly declares that Texas’ TRAP law imposes an unconstitutional “undue burden” on women’s ability to terminate their pregnancies. His opinion, however, is also somewhat dry—in classic Breyer fashion—and treads lightly in criticizing Texas’ assertion that it must regulate abortion clinics out of existence in order to “protect women’s health.”

    Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg ( Notorious RGB) signed onto Breyer’s decision—but in a separate concurrence, she provided a decidedly blunter assessment of Texas’ anti-abortion argument. “The Texas law called H. B. 2 inevitably will reduce the number of clinics and doctors allowed to provide abortion services,” Ginsburg explained. “Texas argues that H. B. 2’s restrictions are constitutional because they protect the health of women who experience complications from abortions. In truth, ‘complications from an abortion are both rare and rarely dangerous’ ”—as demonstrated in an amicus brief by the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists.

    “Many medical procedures, including childbirth, are far more dangerous to patients, yet are not subject to ambulatory surgical-center or hospital admitting-privileges requirements,” Ginsburg continued, including “tonsillectomy, colonoscopy, and in-office dental surgery.” Then the justice spelled out the core of the Whole Woman’s Health holding—and provided a warning to other states eager to repeat Texas’ attempt to cut back on abortion rights in the name of protecting women. (Ginsburg quotes Judge Richard Posner’s abortion opinion from November; I’ve excised the quotes for clarity.)

  • “When Donald Trump bought the famous Turnberry golf club in Ayrshire last year, he believed his name would soon be cemented alongside the legends of the game,” notes the report by The Independent on Sunday. However, that nearly $400 million dream is in tatters:

    [Trump’s] dream of handing over the trophy at The Open is in tatters, The Independent on Sunday can reveal, after golf’s governing body, headquartered in Scotland, privately decided that his reputation is now so toxic that the newly renamed Trump Turnberry can no longer host the game’s most prestigious tournament.
    The Independent on Sunday reports that Martin Slumbers, the new chief executive of the Royal and Ancient Golf Club of St Andrews,1 had been expected to endorse Trump’s course to host the 2020 Open Tournament, but after Trump’s recent slew of racist remarks about the Chinese, Mexicans, Muslims and women – increasing concerns regarding the risk of boycotts by tournament sponsors and players were too much for the prestigious governing body.

    As the United Kingdom’s The Independent on Sunday reports: “The more offensive he is, the more popular he is – but not in Scotland, and not with golf’s ruling class.”

    One Royal and Ancient member was quoted by The Independent on Sunday as saying: “Those who forecast worse would come, including warnings from our American cousins, have been proved correct.”

    The "blacklist" of journalists barred from the Republican presidential nominee has begun. In the US.

    Staffers from BuzzFeed, The Washington Post and The Guardian tweeted about being blocked from attending Trump's visit to his golf course in Aberdeen, Scotland.
    BuzzFeed's DC bureau chief John Stanton said he and the Post's Jenna Johnson had been "thrown out of Trump's Aberdeen golf course."
    He posted a picture of what he could see from outside -- a home belonging to one of the golf course's neighbors who was flying a Mexican flag to express disapproval of the presumptive GOP nominee.

  • Support for Donald Trump is plunging quickly as almost two-thirds of Americans are anxious about the real estate mogul becoming president. This is good news for Hillary Clinton, who has managed to open up a 12-point lead over the presumptive Republican nominee, according to the latest Washington Post/ABC News poll. Clinton has the support of 51 percent of registered voters nationwide, compared to 39 percent for Trump. That marks a sharp turnaround from last month’s poll that found the race nearly evenly matched, and even had Trump ahead by two points, 46 percent to 44 percent.

    A new NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll also has Clinton leading, albeit by a smaller five-point margin, 46 percent versus 41 percent.

    There seem to be a lot of nervous people in the American electorate who are worried about a Trump presidency, according to the Post/ABC poll. A new high, 64 percent, say Trump is unqualified to be president, and 70 percent say they are anxious about the prospect of a Trump presidency. The poll also found that 66 percent of people believe Trump is unfairly biased against women, minorities, and Muslims.

    This is not to say it’s all roses for Clinton as 50 percent of Americans say they’re anxious about the idea of the former secretary of state becoming president. And the dislike for Clinton is so strong that even some who disapprove of Trump’s comments say they will vote for him. In fact, 11 percent of those who say the presumptive Republican nominee is unqualified to be president will vote for him anyway.

    What about a third party candidate? The NBC/Wall Street Journal poll found that when registered voters are given the choice, Clinton’s support drops to 39 percent while Trump gets 38 percent, Libertarian Gary Johnson, 10 percent, and the Green Party’s Jill Stein, 6 percent. Still, according to the Washington Post/ABC poll 78 percent of respondents say they are not looking for a third-party candidate despite the broad dissatisfaction. And the vast majority of those who say they would consider a third-party candidate can’t name one.
