Arizona Legislators Demand Trump Stay Out of Their State, Quash Arpaio Pardon

Arizona says no racists allowed in their state. It’s really a part of Mexico, you see.

AZ Central

Democratic lawmakers, faith leaders and community activists are pushing state and local officials to join them in protesting President Donald Trump’s visit to Phoenix on Tuesday, as well as a possible pardon for Joe Arpaio.

The president told Fox News this week he was “seriously considering” pardoning the former Maricopa County sheriff, a political ally who faces jail time for refusing to follow a court order to halt immigration patrols unlawfully targeting Latinos.

“(Trump) should delay the visit here and respect the people who were affected in Charlottesville last week, especially the family that lost their daughter,” said state Sen. Catherine Miranda, referring to 32-year-old Heather Heyer, killed Saturday after a car crashed into demonstrators protesting a white-supremacy rally in the Virginia city.

“The message I’m getting is that he’s going to continue to condone racism and hatred by coming here and pardoning the most racist sheriff in the nation,” the Phoenix Democrat said.

The senators and other leaders will issue a formal call for support Friday morning at the Phoenix Mexican restaurant El Portal.

Trump already faces heavy criticism for calling left-wing groups just as violent as white supremacists in Charlottesville and for saying there were “bad people” on both sides.

To pardon Arpaio on top of those remarks “would be devastating for our community, because it would send a very strong message that … targeting people based on their race and treating them differently because of their ethnicity are acceptable behaviors,” Sen. Martín Quezada said.

“This should be the end of an ugly chapter in Arizona history,” the Maryvale Democrat said. “To have (Arpaio) finally be held accountable for the harm he caused all these years, and then to have the president to come in and alter that outcome — we can’t stand by and let that happen.”

Petra Falcon, executive director of immigrant-advocacy non-profit Promise Arizona, stressed that leaders will not ask people to protest in-person at Tuesday’s potentially “volatile” rally. But she believes elected officials should publicly support the “cry that this president is not welcome to continue to drive a message of hate.”

SENATOR CATHERINE MIRANDA. GRINGOS NOT WELCOME.

KKK advertising itself as ‘Kool Kids Klub’ on flyers in Upstate NY neighborhood

Well, well, well. What have we here?

Is the Kool Kids Klub really distributing flyers to homes or are Jews perpetrating another hoax in order to keep the shekels flying into the coffers of the ADL and the SPLC by scaring low information, disengaged people who believe that the Klan is lynching thousands of po’ ol’ Nigras every year.

And why is it a serious police matter when flyers are thrown onto someone’s property. Do the police go after other groups who do the same?

Syracuse.com

Flyers advertising a Ku Klux Klan rally were found on driveways in an Upstate NY neighborhood, and local police are asking for the public’s help to determine who put them there.

The Fulton County Sheriff’s Office posted pictures of the flyers on Facebook. They were sealed inside plastic bags which had kitty litter in them to weigh them down.

“Please be aware that there are individuals going around representing themselves as members of the KKK,” the Sheriff’s Office warned residents. “Recent activity has them in Northville over night where they are leaving small bags containing informational pamphlets and kitty litter. This is NOT harmful and can be thrown out.”

The fliers advertise a Klan Rally in Charlottsville, Virginia, in July. They refer to “cultural genocide of white people” and say, “The Kool Kids Klub wants you.”

Police have asked for anyone with information, or a security camera that can show a license plate number of the people who distributed the fliers, to call the sheriff’s office at 518-736-2100.

Police could cite possible suspects for littering.

It’s not the first instance of Klan activity in Upstate NY this year. In February, residents in Fort Plain found Valentine’s Day-themed Klan recruitment flyers telling white people to “love your own race.”

The comments at the source site are just more of the usual name calling. No one ever wants to tackle the issue of how loving your own people is equal to hating all other people. They won’t tackle it because they don’t have a case.

100 Days of Trump Celebrated with Campaign Style Rally

Watch the video and enjoy President Trump blast the (((media))) and the other enemies of working class people.

As usual, the reporting is slanted against Trump. Read around that fake news and savor the victory.

HARRISBURG — President Trump delivered a slashing, campaign-style speech here to mark his 100th day in office, accusing the media of lying about his success and saying he would rather spend the day with “much better people” in Pennsylvania than those in Washington.

“Make no mistake: We are just beginning in our fight to make America great again,” Trump told a raucous crowd at the Pennsylvania Farm Show Complex, many wearing his signature red “Make America Great Again” hats. “We are keeping one promise after another and, frankly, the people are really happy about it.”

He touted his placement of Justice Neil Gorsuch on the Supreme Court and scrapping of the Trans Pacific Partnership trade deal. But he got his biggest cheers with a sustained attack on the media, returning, nearly six months after Election Day, to the same themes that drove his campaign.

While Trump has come under criticism for failing to show progress on some of his biggest campaign pledges, he said the media has refused to give him credit and “deserves a very, very big fat failing grade.”

And in a sign that 100 days in the Oval Office have done little to change him, the president continued to boast about the crowds at his events, declaring that “we have a lot of people standing outside” and that he “broke the all-time record for this arena.” Still, there were rows of empty seats and space on the floor as he spoke.

Trump spoke just 40 miles from Gettysburg, where in October he laid out a largely unaccomplished 10-point plan for his first 100 days in office. The rally also took place as the Capitol press corps mingled with celebrities at the annual White House Correspondents’ Dinner, a gala that has become a symbol of cozy ties between media, cultural, and economic elites. He had attended in the past but Trump became the first sitting president in more than three decades to skip the dinner.

“There’s another big gathering taking place tonight in Washington, D.C.,” he said to loud boos. “I could not possibly be more thrilled to be more than 100 miles away from the Washington swamp, spending my evening with all of you, and with a much, much larger crowd and much better people.”

Central Pennsylvania was a regular campaign stop during 2016, and in many ways Saturday’s rally was a mirror image of those events. Outside the complex, Democrats gathered to protest what they said would be devastating policies the president hopes to enact and said he had little to show for his first three months in office. Inside, effusive supporters had traveled hours – some from Michigan and New York – to join the rally, chant “U.S.A., U.S.A.!,” and roar as the president repeated familiar promises and catchphrases.

He painted a dark picture of dangerous immigrants flooding into the country, of police under siege and Islamic terrorism threatening Americans’ safety, promising to reverse those problems. He urged police to get several protesters at the site “outta here” as his supporters shouted at those who came to disrupt. Several people were walked out, including one man who shouted “Trump is a traitor” and held a Russian flag. State police held him briefly on the ground before escorting him out.

Despite his approval ratings hovering around 40 percent through most of his presidency, a historically low rating at this point, Trump’s aides have pushed hard to persuade the public his early days have been a major success. His team touted Trump’s moves to roll back Obama regulations and strike Syria. As he arrived in Harrisburg he toured a nearby wheelbarrow factory and signed two more executive orders he said were aimed at creating jobs.

“Promises Made. Promises Kept.” read one sign prominently displayed inside the Harrisburg arena. The Rolling Stones’ “You Can’t Always Get What You Want,” a favorite from the campaign trail, played over the loudspeakers.

Many of his biggest promises have languished, but Trump promised his supporters all would be well. “Don’t even worry about it — go home, go to sleep, rest assured,” he told the crowd, “we’re going to build that wall,” though he has not yet secured funding for it.

He touted his major tax overhaul, released Wednesday on one page, and his plan to finally repeal the Affordable Care Act, which is stuck in the mud in the Republican-controlled Congress.

This, Trump acknowledged, blaming Democrats for standing in the way. “I’ll be so angry at … all of the congressmen in this room if we don’t get that damn thing passed quickly,” he said of the repeal, then again assured supporters that Obamacare “is dead anyway” and will collapse.

His supporters — including many waiting in a line snaking through the vast farm complex parking lot — seemed to agree. They remain fiercely loyal and encouraged by his first few months. They blamed setbacks on congressional obstruction and activist judges and said they believed he was keeping his promises as best he could.

“No matter what he’s trying to do, he’s getting stopped,” said Jill Williams, 39, who drove four hours from Groton, N.Y., to attend the rally. “He’s the president. He should be able to overrule some things.”

She said she was especially disappointed by federal judges who blocked Trump’s ban on travel from several majority-Muslim countries.

Zachary Adam Perry, a York resident who served in Iraq in 2007, said he hopes Trump can hold his temper on the world stage, but approved of the president’s missile strikes in Syria.

“It’s time we show the terrorists that we are a nation that is forceful now. They see weakness and they jump on it,” said Perry, 30.

Brendon Gaylor, 22, a network technician at the state Department of Health, was attending his first Trump rally. He said he was a member of the alt-right, the far-right nationalist movement that embraced Trump early and fervently.

As for Trump’s first 100 days in office, “I thought it’d be a little easier to drain the swamp,” Gaylor said, “but 2018 is around the corner.”

Fun rally. Just like old times. Loving it.

Swedes Play Dumb, Forcing Trump to Explain Rally Remarks

I watched the part of Saturday’s Trump rally where he mentioned Sweden. I had no trouble understanding that he was talking about crime in Sweden committed by Musllm

NBC News

After bewildering residents and officials of Sweden by suggesting Saturday that a terror-related incident had occurred over the weekend in the small Nordic nation, President Donald Trump attributed his comment to a Fox News interview with a conservative filmmaker.

“We’ve got to keep our country safe. You look at what’s happening in Germany, you look at what’s happening last night in Sweden,” Trump told the crowd at his campaign-like rally in Florida on Saturday, critiquing Europe’s refugee policies and complaining that his travel ban had suffered setbacks in court. “Sweden, who would believe this?”

It was unclear following the rally what could have occurred in Sweden to draw the president’s attention, and the Swedish Embassy asked for clarity.

Trump took to his Twitter account Sunday evening to explain that he was referring to a Tucker Carlson segment that appeared on Fox News Friday. In the segment, Carlson interviewed right-wing filmmaker Ami Horowitz, who had recently made a documentary about Sweden’s refugee policy. The segment did not contain breaking news.

A spokesperson for the Swedish Embassy said they didn’t know if Trump’s tweet served as the government’s official response to their request for an explanation.

“We have asked State Department if President Trumps’ tweet is their official answer to our question earlier today. We are still awaiting an answer on that,” the spokesperson said.

A White House spokesperson had attempted to explain what Trump had been referring to prior to Trump’s tweet.

“He was talking about rising crime and recent incidents in general — not referring to a specific incident,” White House Deputy Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders told reporters.

But the country had spent the day baffled, because the president had said “last night” and nothing appeared to have happened.

“Sweden? Terror attack? What has he been smoking? Questions abound,” Carl Bildt, a former Swedish prime minister, wrote on Twitter while he attended the Munich Security Conference on Sunday.

Sweden’s Foreign Ministry spokeswoman, Catarina Axelsson, told the Associated Press that the Swedish government did not know of any “terror-linked major incidents.” Additionally, the Associated Press reported, Sweden’s Security Police had not seen any threats or responded to any attacks.

President Trump has probably seen the Swedish crime memes.

Jewish News Organization Bad Mouths Trump Rally with Biased Reporting

This report on the Presidential rally held in Melbourne, Florida on February 18, 2017 is not so much made up of lies, but rather of omissions.

The tone is slanted. There’s no effort made to understand why Trump’s people support him or why he needs their support in the face of unprecedented demonization by the Democrat Party and the press.

San Diego Jewish World

MELBOURNE, Fla. — President Donald Trump returned to campaign mode Saturday with a clear opponent in mind — the media — declaring before thousands of cheering supporters that “fake news” was undermining his nascent administration’s accomplishments.

The White House was running “so smoothly,” Trump said in an airport hangar here. He said the rally was about sharing “our incredible progress in making America great again.”

“I also want to speak to you without the filter of the fake news,” he said. “They’ve become a big part of the problem. They are part of the corrupt system.”

In its first four weeks, Trump’s administration has faced setbacks with little precedent, chief among them the ouster of his national security advisor after just three weeks amid a deepening controversy over Russian interference in the U.S. government.

Trump’s approval ratings are historically low for a new president; one of his Cabinet nominees withdrew despite a low confirmation threshold; and the courts stalled a major initiative, the temporary ban on travel to the U.S. from seven majority-Muslim nations.

Trump painted a far different picture. “A great spirit of optimism is sweeping — and you see it — is sweeping across the country,” he said, citing recent stock market highs as his chief evidence.

Trump Rally, Melbourne, Florida, 1/18/2017, Full Speech (Video and Transcript)

I watched most of the rally live. It’s classic Trump.

Enjoy, if you haven’t seen it.

Full transcript at Palm Beach Post

Here is a full transcript of Trump’s remarks according to C-Span and Vox:

Thank you, everybody, thank you. I didn’t know that Melania was going to be saying the Lord’s Prayer, but I thought that was very beautiful, thank you, thank you.

It’s so great to be here in Florida. My second home with you. This is a state I truly love. This is a state where we all had great victory together. Thank you.

It’s now been a month since my inauguration. And I am here to tell you about our incredible progress in making America great again. I’m also here to tell you about our plans for the future and they’re big and they’re bold and It’s what our country is all about, believe me.

I’m here because I want to be among my friends and among the people. This was a great movement, a movement like has never been seen before in our country our probably anywhere else. This was a truly great movement And I want to be here with you, and I will always be with you. I promise you that. I want to be in a room filled with hard working American patriots who love their country, who salute their flag and who pray for a better future.

I also want to speak to you without the filter of the fake news. The dishonest media which has published one false story after another with no sources, even though they pretend they have them, they make them up in many cases, they just don’t want to report the truth and they’ve been calling us wrong now for two years. They don’t get it. By they’re starting to get it. I can tell you that. They’ve become a big part of the problem. They are part of the corrupt system. Thomas Jefferson, Andrew Jackson, and Abraham Lincoln and many of our greatest presidents fought with the media and called them out often times on their lies. When the media lies to people, I will never, ever let them get away with it. I will do whatever I can that. They don’t get away with it.
