    Except, as you know, it's a phony scandal like all the others. The Clinton Foundation has been fully audited and the results show the accusations of financial impropriety are total bunk.

    It's probably just a matter of time before this URL goes away altogether. Clearly the format was put in place because they thought it would enable them to charge more for advertising. We'll see about that.

    I'll tell you how they will deal with it. They won't. Just like the uber cowardly doc (wink) alias hid under his blankee when I obliterated his imbecilic claim the country's racial tensions were heightened over Obama's remark about the Cambridge police. Just like you won't be hearing from the kocses alias now that I've asked for proof of his claim that close to 1,000 people a year die by slipping in the tub.
    Pods don't stop to reflect on their beliefs when proven wrong. They hold on to them more tightly. They spend more hours on the WND site, on Alex Jones' site, watching Faux, listening to Hannity. They fill their heads full of lies about the BLM movement, Hillary, whatever the target du jour of far right wing media happens to be.

    "More Americans died in 2015 from slipping and falling in the shower and cracking open their skulls than died from violent interactions with police." Got any proof of that?

    "Huckabee appears to have cited the Post's findings that of the 990 people shot and killed by police in 2015, 948 people were male, 494 were white and 258 were black. So using raw numbers, Huckabee's claim is accu
    rate.
    "Over the past year, The Post found that the vast majority of those shot and killed by police were armed and half of them were white. Still, police killed blacks at three times the rate of whites when adjusted for the populations where these shootings occurred. And although black men represent 6 percent of the U.S. population, they made up nearly 40 percent of those who were killed while unarmed."
    So, even though more whites were killed by police in 2015 by sheer numbers, blacks were three times as likely to be killed by police. Blacks comprise 12 percent of the U.S. population; black men represent 6 percent.

  • That headline isn't recent, it's from 2014. But the actions taken by Repubs to prevent the Obama admin from taking action, legislatively, to bring jobs back to the US are emblematic of a cynical strategy they have employed since he was elected. One pods fall for every time. The strategy being, actively work to obstruct progress in any number of areas and then point the finger of blame at Obama for the lack of progress.
    Since the recovery from the Bush recession Obama's record on job creation has been stellar in terms of pure numbers. Especially considering the depth of the recession typically requiring, according to economists, as much as ten years to recover from. Because the absolute numbers have been good Repubs have chosen to attack Obama for the number of higher wage paying jobs like those found in the manufacturing sector. This as opposed to lower paying service sector jobs. All the time doing what they can to keep the jobs they blame Obama for not generating enough of from being brought back to America.
    Same thing with gridlock in DC. People are rightly frustrated with the seeming inability of government to address the problems we face due to congressional inaction. But that inaction has purposefully been caused by Repub intransigence even to pass legislation they favored before Obama assumed the office of the presidency. Voters have a tendency to blame the party that holds the WH when issues are not addressed. Repubs know that, so they have sought to make government as inefficient as possible and then, just as with jobs, seek to blame government generally or Obama specifically when problems go unsolved. If Hillary gets elected expect more of the same.

    "Obama thinks that trashing property, robbing stores and shooting people is legitimate protest."

    Can you see how making a ridiculous statement like that, completely mischaracterizing what President Obama said, leads people to conclude most of your criticisms of him are not founded in reality? Not to mention making you look like an idiot.

  • Nugent has made dozens of outrageously racist and otherwise inflammatory comments over the years. One of which was to suggest President Obama should suck on his machine gun.

    Which begs the question, what does it say that someone like that would be allowed to sit on the board of directors for the NRA?

    And there you have the kind of reply indicative of people on the far Right, who have lost touch with reality.........their heads so full of propaganda they don't know which way is up. It's impossible to reason with them, compromise with them, have a rational discussion with them.

    I think he has created a phony background because he is embarrassed about his real life. What that is exactly I couldn't say but janitorial work isn't out of the question. But between the spelling errors, the obvious lack of maturity, the absence of any intellectual rigor behind his beliefs, I'd be surprised if he much more than a high school education.

    Consider for a moment the emotional maturity of someone who uses the names doc (wink) does. Condomlips. Hilldabeast. Geeksberger. Turd. The person behind this alias would have us believe he served in the military, has an advanced degree, had a responsible job in the field of education. That's the resume of an adult, not a clownish poster who only posts sophomoric rants followed by insult laced replies. A poster who never, never tries to defend what he writes on a factual basis when I point out his repeated errors or crazy theories. These are the emotionally #$%$ people Trump relies on for support. Preying on their vulnerability to being easily manipulated, their ignorance, their insecurities, and their fears.

  • The article not only debunks a number of nutbagger accusations regarding how the foundation's money is spent it contains links to a copy of a IRS tax form #990 as well as an audit of the books. It appears to me information about the foundation is already public. Which is more than can be said about Trump's tax returns.

    if blacks had a brain

    I was speaking just this weekend with friends who have a son in his 40's. He lived with a black woman for a number of years. They were in Maine a few years ago, went in to a lobster and clam shack on the coast, and while they were not refused service they noticed customers who came in well after them getting waited on while they were kept waiting. The son complained and was told he should go elsewhere if he didn't like the service. The point being prejudice is not only found in the south.
    A seemingly minor experience like that can have a profound effect especially if it is repeated or reinforced when speaking with other black people. It's something AA laws can not change or make up for.

    "I am not a black man, and cannot judge them as I do not walk in their shoes."

    One of my rental properties is rented by a black man in his early 70's, he's retired from the Army. Last year I was at the house when he had a number of friends over, all of whom were around the same age. A discussion about politics turned to stories of prejudice they faced throughout their lives. I found myself feeling embarrassed at what these men encountered at the hands of white people. I don't think it's possible, as you say, to know what it does to a person when they face living in a society where there has been a lifetime of discrimination. A lifetime of being in a minority among a population of people, many of whom have attitudes like the racist pods on this board. A lifetime of dealing with people who even if the hire you do not treat you fairly. A lifetime of living with the anger and frustration being discriminated against causes. Generations of kids hearing stories about relatives who have been harassed by the police, passed over for promotions, kept from buying or renting a home, all because they are black. Generations of kids learning about slavery, about being kept from attending schools, sitting in the back of the bus, seeing images of blacks serving whites, being beaten, lynched, fire hosed, and having the personal experience of being hated for the color of their skin. The surprise isn't the state of the black population in the USA, the surprise is for the ones who successfully deal with the prejudice instead of falling victim to it.

    Obama The Divider

    I'm glad you got that feckless rant out of your system. Obama did not say he would fundamentally change the fabric of America back in 2008. He ran on a campaign slogan of "hope and change," understandable after the disastrous admin of Shrub. Hope we could stave off a depression and make people's lives better, change with respect to things like the illegal practices of torture and domestic spying. While voters agreed with his message I'm not sure anyone could have anticipated the racist backlash to a black man being President by the likes of the teabaggers or the unprecedented legislative obstruction undertaken by Repubs in Congress that continues to this day.
    But what I really want to examine is your absurd claim the incident with Prof. Gates and Obama's subsequent comments "set the table" for the racial tensions that currently exist. For 250 years the country has gone through slavery, Jim Crow, segregation, white supremacist organizations, job discrimination, separate but "equal," resistance to the Civil Rights act, various pieces of legislation like the Voting Rights act designed to stop the grotesque and pervasive institutional racism we still have in America, statistically proven unequal treatment by police and the justice system, but you think Obama calling the Cambridge police's actions stupid for arresting a black man in his own home is the genesis for where we are today? I hope you just hadn't thought it through when you wrote that. Because it's the kind of assertion that makes you appear to ignore this country's history so you can lay centuries of racial discord at the feet of Obama. It's the kind of assertion pods make.

    "Toast, there were assassination attempts against police in 3 different states at almost the same time." I did a Google search for that and didn't find anything so unless you can provide some evidence to back up your claim I'm going to have to assume you have lied again.
    It goes without saying violence directed at police is not acceptable or excusable. There are better ways to address the issue of police brutality and unequal treatment by the justice system against blacks. But to deny such injustice exists, and is the cause but not a justification of, retaliation on the part of various individuals is something only a nitwit would do.
