Mexico May Seek Extradition of El Paso Shooter to Face Terrorism...

(Above – Mexican Foreign Minister Marcelo Ebrard) Six Mexican citizens were killed in the El Paso Walmart shooting Saturday and they are not happy about it. KGNS TV Laredo “MEXICO CITY, MX (NBC) – In the wake of the El Paso mass shooting, Mexico says it will take legal action to protect Mexican citizens and Americans of Mexican descent in the United States. Marcelo Ebrard condemned the shooting calling it an “Act of barbarism.” He said Mexico’s priority is attending to the impacted families. He added that at the direction of the Mexican president he plans “Prompt, expeditious and forceful legal actions” to demand the protection of Mexicans in the United States.” There is video at the linked page, but I can’t embed it here. But I did find this interesting report on YouTube: That should present an interesting dilemma for drumpf. How his troglodyte base will howl if one of their own is offered up to Mexico, who will not give a flying f*** about what a “quiet, nice” white boy he was, only that he murdered six of its citizens and many of their descent. What will it be Mr. White-Nationalist-in-Chief?

I’m Not Saying There was a “Racially Charged” Motive for The...

Last night a white POS shot and killed nine people. No motive has been attributed to the POS but his sister, along with her boyfriend, were two of the victims, and the area in Dayton where they were shot was was home to several dance clubs, and it was Saturday night… The Victims, according to Heavy.com “Derrick Fudge was a resident of Springfield, Ohio, according to his Facebook page. He graduated from South High School in Springfield.” “Thomas James McNichols was a Dayton resident and went by TeeJay, according to his Facebook page. His cousin wrote on Facebook, “This is TOO MUCH. Rest peacefully my Angel TeeJay James.” “Nicholas Cumer was a graduate student in the master of cancer care program at Saint Francis University in Pennsylvania, the school said on its website on Sunday.” “Beatrice Warren-Curtis, who went by Nicole Curtis, was in Dayton with a friend, Monica Brickhouse, who was also killed in the shooting.” “Monica Brickhouse was a Springfield, Ohio, native who also lived in Virginia Beach, Virginia. She ran a design, event planning and catering company called Two Good Girls.” Meagan Betts, the POS’ sister, photo altered to take the POS out of it, attribution NY Post That’s all the victim photos that are available now. May they rest in peace and forgive us all for any part we had in making a mess out of the world they were taken from. ………………………………………………………………………………………………………………… To receive articles of mine not published elsewhere become a patron on Patreon.

Mehdi Hasan at The Intercept. “Trump is nothing less than a...

(Above – Mehdi Hasan) The Intercept is not exactly a favorite read here, but one of it’s columnists, British Journalist and frequent Trump critic Mehdi Hasan, has something important to say this day after a Trump acolyte targeted Hispanic Americans during his shooting rampage at a Walmart in El Paso, Texas. Mr. Hasan gets the easy part out of the way quickly, listing some of the many terrorists shot into  action by the *resident’s hateful rhetoric, before settling into the meat of his essay: (Bolds Mine) “And now, this latest massacre in El Paso. Let’s be clear: in an age of rising domestic terrorism cases — the majority of which are motivated by “white supremacist violence,” according to FBI Director Christopher Wray — Trump is nothing less than a threat to our collective security. More and more commentators now refer, for example, to the phenomenon of “stochastic terrorism” — originally defined by an anonymous blogger back in 2011 as “the use of mass communications to incite random actors to carry out violent or terrorist acts that are statistically predictable but individually unpredictable.” Sounds pretty Trumpian, right? As I wrote in October: “The president may not be pulling the trigger or planting the bomb, but he is enabling much of the hatred behind those acts. He is giving aid and comfort to angry white men by offering them clear targets — and then failing to fully denounce their violence.” And as I pointed out on CNN earlier this year, there is a simple way for Trump to distance himself from all this. Give a speech denouncing white nationalism and the violence it has produced. Declare it a threat to national security. Loudly disown those who act in his name. Tone down the incendiary rhetoric on race, immigration, and Islam. Trump, however, has done the exact opposite. In March, in the wake of the Christchurch massacre, the president said he did not consider white nationalism to be a rising threat, dismissing it as a “small group of people.” A month earlier, in February, Trump was asked whether he would moderate his language after a white nationalist Coast Guard officer was arrested over a plot to assassinate leading journalists and Democrats. “I think my language is very nice,” he replied.” Hasan then sites the statement released by The Washington National Cathedral earlier this week asking the reasonable question “When will Americans have enough?” “The escalation of radicalized rhetoric from the President of the United States has evoked responses from all sides of the political spectrum. On one side, African American leaders have led the way in rightfully expressing outrage. On the other, those aligned with the President seek to downplay the racial overtones of his attacks, or remain silent. As faith leaders who serve at Washington National Cathedral ¬– the sacred space where America gathers at moments of national significance – we feel compelled to ask: After two years of President Trump’s words and actions, when will Americans have enough?… …We have come to accept a level of insult and abuse in political discourse that violates each person’s sacred identity as a child of God. We have come to accept as normal a steady stream of language and accusations coming from the highest office in the land that plays to racist elements in society. This […]

The Baltimore Sun Slaps Trump Again – “a jerk, a clod,...

The Baltimore Sun Editorial board responded yesterday to the following disgusting display of BLOTUS attacking an American city at his campaign rally in Cincinnati earlier this week…. (Bolds mine) “Slightly more than 15 minutes into his speech at a rally in Cincinnati Thursday night — right after claiming the crowd was record size but bemoaning how local authorities had limited the arena’s lawful capacity — President Donald Trump set his sights once again upon Baltimore. Basking in the crowd’s adulation, he started listing the dangerous countries where the murder rate was, he believed, not as bad as Charm City’s. El Salvador, Honduras, Guatemala. Then he sought his supporters’ response. ” I believe it’s higher than … give me, give me a place that you think is pretty bad,” he excitedly announced. “Give me a place. This guy says Afghanistan,” he said smiling and pointing to a member of the audience. “I believe it’s higher than Afghanistan.” The crowd took it all in appreciatively, smiling, some cheering. They laughed when their leader joked how fact-checkers might contradict him Friday. Like Mr. Trump, they appeared wholly indifferent to people dying in Baltimore… …This newspaper got some attention six days ago — when Mr. Trump first launched his attacks on Charm City — for describing this president’s shortcomings in unfiltered, unequivocal terms. But that missed an important point that was so vividly on display Thursday: He lacks human empathy. Psychiatry has a name for that condition. It’s called antisocial personality disorder. But taking partisan delight at the suffering of Baltimoreans? That is not the action of a rodent. (As PETA chastised us this week, rats actually care about each other.) Nor can it be explained by mental aberration. This is the behavior of a jerk, a clod, a dolt, a schmuck. Every American should watch that tape so they may be spared the delusion that Mr. Trump’s criticism of Baltimore comes from a constructive place. He is dancing on graves. He is ridiculing Baltimore along with other big cities for partisan gain. As if the rest of America didn’t have housing problems, or crime, or drug abuse. Yes, Baltimore’s homicide rate is high compared to other communities, but then so is the rate in the rest of this country compared to other industrialized nations. As a United Nations study has pointed out, the U.S. intentional homicide rate is well above all of Europe and all of Asia. A normal president, a person with the ability to understand the suffering of his fellow humans, would not mock Good for the Baltimore Sun. Editorial boards of Newspapers in cities across the country, even in red states, should follow their lead. Because all it takes is on Fox News segment pointing out that the citizens of Dallas, of Houston, of New Orleans, St. Louis, Kansas City and yes, Cincinnati voted against the schmuck and will do so again for him to spew his bile upon them. ………………………………………………………………………………………………………………… Please follow me on Twitter @durrati  

Move Over #MoscowMitch, #LeningradLindsey is Taking Your Spot.

Welp, they say all good things must come to an end, and after its week-long dominance of the trending on Twitter top spot #MoscowMitch is giving way to the richly deserved moniker #LeningradLindsey. Though Graham has been working hard to earn this designation, completely reversing course and pledging fealty to TsarevichTrump after a round of golf during which only FSM knows what sort of kompromat was discussed, he really cemented his hold on the title yesterday when he advanced his master’s white nationalist (read Russian) agenda by breaking four rules of the Senate, shutting down Democrat’s right to speak before calling for a vote to pass a bill authorizing the continued kidnapping of migrant children at the border. The Hill “The hashtag “LeningradLindsey” trended on Twitter Thursday after Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) forced a controversial asylum bill through committee. The Senate Judiciary Committee on Thursday advanced a bill to overhaul U.S. asylum laws, waiving committee rules to force the bill through to the full Senate, where it likely won’t get the 60 votes it needs to pass. But Graham’s move to push the bill through the panel outraged Democrats who say the South Carolina senator broke the rules on how lawmakers take up legislation in order to move a partisan bill along. Hundreds started using the hashtag invoking Leningrad — the Soviet-era name of the Russian city of St. Petersburg — slamming Graham for the move.” Senator Patrick Leahy was causally vocal on this flagrant violation of prototypical. And so a hashtag was born. So, who will be next? With all the Russia rigging going down in Florida, I’m betting on #RostovRubio ………………………………………………………………………………………………………………… Please follow me on Twitter @durrati

Fox News / YouTube Rep Will Hurd on Trump ...

The GOPexit Continues, Will Hurd Won’t Run.

The bad news is that he was one of the few decent ones. The good news is that he only won his Texas border district by a half point in 2018, so it is ripe for Dems to pick up. Now let’s go win the Texas 23rd! (This post is exclusive to PolitiZoom by Dino Durrati) Please follow me on Twitter @durrati  

John Legend Pulls No Punches When Asked About Trump – “He’s...

(Above – Our heart is with you, John.) Singer, songwriter, producer and husband of Chrissy Teigen John Legend pulled no punches in this on-the go interview with TMZ. When asked about Mjango Unchained and his racist attacks on Rep. Elijah Cummings… he tells it like it decidedly is. Let it all hang out, John. Huffington Post “Our president is a flaming racist. He’s a piece of shit. He says piece of shit shit all the time. That’s what he does,” said Legend. “We need to get him out of office.” That’s the boiled down version. For your viewing pleasure: Asked what could be done in Baltimore, Legend offers some perspective: “There’s a lot that can be done, it’s got over a century of history that created the problems that they have, and we need to focus on making all of our communities better instead of talking shit about our communities just because you’re a racist prick.” But he wasn’t done with the racist pric* just yet. “Donald Trump is an evil fucking canker sore on America’s whole landscape, so we need to get him out of office,” Legend continued.” Thanks, John I’ve been casting about searching for a new appellation for drumpf —  “fucking canker sore” hits my sweet spot. Legend has the best words. ………………………………………………………………………………………………………………… Please follow me on Twitter @durrati
