      They say we shouldn't bandy the term Nazi about. It lessens the evil of what they were what they did and who they targeted as scapegoats for the sins of others.

      They say we shouldn't call out those who display White Supremacy around the world or call out dangerous strands of Nationalism, Racism and hatred.

      They say we should engage in meaningful dialogue and exchange ideas when we know those opposite have no need for the truth as they believe their good is a greater good when in fact it is based pure evil.

      They said the same before the camps, the sewn stars on Jewish clothing, before the numbers were tattooed onto the arms of men women and children.

      They said the same when summer camps for children turned into the recruitment tools for the Nazi Machine.

      They claimed to be superior when they were not, better than others when they were lesser in mind and heart.


      They were not seen as a danger or a threat.

      They were underestimated.

          17 days from the Midterm Elections that will define whether the United States will continue to be subjected to a thoroughly unAmerican Executive Branch that controls the Legislative Branch and is in the Process of Subverting the Judicial Branch. I, and many others, are devoting every minute that we can spare to the elections of anti-Republicans, i.e. Democrats, at every level of government: local, regional, statewide, and national. I find myself recalling these words from John Adams, written in the last months of his life, arising from correspondence with Thomas Jefferson.





          I run into so many uninformed, misinformed and malinformed citizens every day that those words haunt me. The uninformed who simply do not know and do not care to know; the misinformed who think they know but who do not; and the malinformed who have been deliberately misled hold the cards in this card game where the stakes are enormously high.

          So, before I head out for yet another Get Out the Vote Meeting and Canvassing Effort, I recall that despair is not an option. These slightly tongue in cheek words are a comfort and spur to action.

              Thursday morning on Fox and Friends, Eric Trump lied to all viewers about his families business ties with Russia and Saudi, Arabia during the time his father acted as President of the United States of America.

              “There’s zero investments in Russia, there’s zero investments in Saudi,” Eric Trump said. “We have absolutely nothing to do with those countries.”

              In the past, Eric has reported several times, that the family business relied on both Russia and the Saudis. Looks like lying might run in the family!

              Eric Trump blatantly lied about Russian and Saudi investment in the family business he’s running while his father serves as president.

              President Donald Trump’s son appeared Thursday morning on “Fox & Friends,” where he insisted the two nations had no business relationship with the Trump Organization.

              “There’s zero investments in Russia, there’s zero investments in Saudi,” Eric Trump said. “We have absolutely nothing to do with those countries.”

              In fact, Eric Trump boasted in 2014 of his family’s business ties to Russia, saying they relied on those foreign investments after U.S. banks stopped lending to them.

              “We don’t rely on American banks,” he told a golf reporter four years ago. “We have all the funding we need out of Russia.”

              The Trump Organization also relies heavily on Saudi investment in hotels, office spaces and apartments, and the president once sold a yacht to a Saudi billionaire.

              “I love the Saudis,” Trump said when announcing his presidential bid at Trump Tower in 2015. “Many are in this building.”.....

              *********

              Eric Trump claims that the Trump Organization has "zero investments in Russia, there’s zero investments in Saudi, we have absolutely nothing to do with those countries." The Saudi government owns an entire floor of Trump Tower NYC, and that's just off the top of my head. (Bobbie Lewis on Twitter)

              Opinion | America’s Elections Could Be Hacked. Go Vote Anyway.

                  The System’s Vulnerabilities Are Real, but Please, DO NOT STAY HOME


                  Americans have learned that Russians have been interfering in our elections for some time; and there have been indictments of of some for conspiracy to sow discord around our elections of 2016 and the midterms. We learned that some voting machines are vulnerable to be hacked, and that some legislators emails have already been hacked. With that in mind, we can't help but wonder if our midterm election will be hacked.

                  Last summer we learned that an 11 year old child hacked into a replica of a state election web and altered the voting totals there in less than ten minutes, and although officials have warned us that Russia is constantly engaged in disrupting the midterm elections, the Trump Administration has done little to protect American votes; so this leaves us wondering how important our votes actually are.

                  The news may seem bleak, but there are some quick fixes that will make sure that our votes are meaningful and simple, and both Democrats and Republicans agree on what they are.

                  One, provide a paper trail for every vote. Hackers work most effectively in the dark, so they love voting machines that produce no paper verification. Currently, five states — Delaware, Georgia, Louisiana, New Jersey and South Carolina — run their elections entirely on paperless touch-screen machines. But all five states are considering a switch back to paper ballots in time for 2020. In this year’s midterms, 19 states and Washington, D.C., will use only paper ballots.

                  Two, audit the vote. The best way to do this is known as a risk-limiting audit, which means comparing the digital tally to a manual count of a randomized sample of paper ballots. This type of audit can identify voting tabulation errors resulting from either malicious attacks or software failures.

                  Three, give states more resources. After dragging its feet for years, Congress in March approved $380 million in grants to states for election security. A little more than a third of the money will be spent on enhancing cybersecurity. A little more than a quarter will go toward buying new voting equipment. The rest will be spent on improving voter-registration systems, running vote audits and communicating better with voters around election time.

                  That money is good, but it’s far from enough. And while the states are spending it in the right ways, Congress could help even more by passing the Secure Elections Act, a bipartisan bill that appeared headed toward passage until it got hung up over the summer.

                  What can voters do? For starters, take advantage of early voting if your state offers it. The sooner votes are in, the more time officials have to detect irregularities. “Every time someone votes early, they’re part of the fight against foreign interference,” said David Becker, who runs the Center for Election Innovation and Research.

                  Most important, don’t stay home because you believe that cyber attacks will rig the results of the election. “It’s true that these systems are vulnerable. It’s also true that you should vote on Election Day,” said Mr. Blaze, the voting-security expert. “The worst outcome would be if people conclude that there’s no point in voting.”

                  So voting remains the best way to make sure that we, as American citizens, get the government that we want to have.

                      Trump Needs A New Nickname For Elizabeth Warren

                          Donald Trump says he will have to come up with a new nickname for Elizabeth Warren now that she has proven him to be an ignorant liar, once again. The appropriate description or nickname for Trump hasn't changed in over 60 years though. He is an ignorant immoral crooked conman.

                          Neither Elizabeth Warren or Trump or you or me had any control over who our ancestors are. If Warren's parents told her she was part Native American, chances are she is part Native American regardless of what Trump and his deplorable supports say, or even what the Cherokee Nation says.

                          Democrats who are criticizing Warren for revealing her DNA test because she is trying to out-trump Trump are showing weakness and ignorance. Revealing the truth and standing by it is not being Trumpish. It is impossible to get farther away from Trump than to tell the truth. And the discussion around whether Democrats should go high when republicans go low, or whether we should kick them when they go low is childish. We can and should do both.

                          Additionally, the rhetoric around Democrats not having a message or a leader is hogwash. Democrats have very clear messages about the rule of law, inclusiveness, heath care, immigration, equality and everything that is important to Americans. Who is our leader? WE are our leader. WE don't need any one person to tell us how to think or what to think. WE tell those WE choose to represent us how and what we think. Their job is to represent US. That is kinda the definition of a representative democracy.

                          And finally, Nancy Pelosi is an AMERICAN ICON. Not just a Democratic icon, but an American icon. These so-called new progressives can like her or not because of her age. The majority of Democrats will continue to support her as long as she is effective, and the reason republicans hate her is BECAUSE she has been effective.


                          https://www.cnn.com/2016/06/29/politics/elizabeth-warren-native-american-pocahontas/index.html

                          Is Warren part Native American?

                          Warren has long said that she is pointing to "family stories" passed down to her through generations as evidence.
                          On Monday, Warren cited and publicized analysis from Carlos Bustamante, a professor of genetics at Stanford and adviser to Ancestry and 23 and Me.
                          "While the vast majority of the individual's ancestry is European," he concluded of Warren, "the results strongly support the existence of an unadmixed Native American ancestor in the individual's pedigree, likely in the range of 6-10 generations ago."
                          In short, the results pretty much agree with what Warren has been arguing for years.
                          "I am very proud of my heritage," she told NPR in 2012. "These are my family stories. This is what my brothers and I were told by my mom and my dad, my mammaw and my pappaw. This is our lives. And I'm very proud of it."
                          In that account and others, a genealogist traced Warren's Native American heritage to the late 19th century.
                          The Washington Post's "Fact Checker" page, in a piece from June 2016, actually decided against judging the issue at all, offering "no rating" and suggesting "readers to look into it on their own and decide whether Trump's attacks over Warren's background have merit."

                              President Donald Trump will be the first sitting president to address the Family Research Council’s Values Voter Summit, which the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) described as a “rogues' gallery of the radical right.”

                              Trump will be the keynote speaker at Friday's event, which will also be attended by his former strategist, Steve Bannon. Other speakers include the founder of anti-Islam group ACT for America and former Trump strategist, Sebastian Gorka.

                              The anti-LGBTQ Family Research Council, labeled as a hate group by the SPLC, has hosted its annual summit since its inception in 2006.

                              "Values voters have waited eight years for a leader who puts America's mission first and respects the values that made America into a great nation,” the council's president Tony Perkins said in a statement reported by The Hill.

                              “Values voters are coming to our nation’s capital thankful to hear from a president who is fulfilling the promises that he campaigned on. Since the early days of the campaign, President Trump allied himself with values voters, promising to put an end to the eight years of relentless assault on the First Amendment,” he added.

                              No other sitting president has ever taken the decision to address the summit, although Trump has spoken before the conference on three previous occasions—even during his presidential election campaign.

                              Speaking of the president’s decision to attend this year’s 12th annual event, SPLC President Richard Cohen told The Independent: “By appearing at the Values Voter Summit, President Trump is lending the legitimacy of his office to a hate group that relentlessly demonizes LGBTQ people and works to deny them of their equal rights.”

                              "His appearance puts the lie to his campaign promise to be a friend to the LGBTQ community. Bigotry is not an American value, and our president should speak out against it,” he added.

                              Trump’s attacks on the LGBTQ community have not gone unnoticed, with the president rescinding Obama-era protection for transgender students that allow them to use the bathroom that matches the gender they identify with. Trump also suggested a ban on transgender troops in the military, and failed to recognize Pride Month or National Coming Out Day, unlike his predecessor.

                              The group organizing the summit has previously commented on homosexuality. “Family Research Council believes that homosexual conduct is harmful to the persons who engage in it and to society at large, and can never be affirmed. It is by definition unnatural, and as such is associated with negative physical and psychological health effects.”

                              It is not clear what topic Trump will address during his speech, but the group’s overwhelmingly negative attitude towards the LGBTQ community has prompted questions about whether a president should be attending a day of glorified hate speech.
