    Big week for Trump. If he screws up his immigration proposal it might be the end of him. Does he walk back the extreme statements or reinforce them?

    The KKK thing is just another invented controversy where the bubble masters leave out key pieces of information and hand out versions to be used as talking points. It will go away on it's own except in the GOP mainstream media and I can't imagine it will actually sway someone to vote for Trump.

    The GOP thinks they've found this clever shortcut to the black vote that requires no effort on their part and requires no changes to their platform at all. It's just so oddly detached from reality. At some point Trump is going to have to deliver his "you are broke and have nothing to lose" speech to a large group of black people. So far it's been whites arguing with other whites. I'm curious to see what the reaction will be.

    Clinton's recent speech about Trump was from a community college in Nevada. Not sure how lavish it was bit based on the tape I saw it wasn't quite the Four Seasons.

    Lizz: ...going to talk about biometrics and E-Verify, not amnesty, referring to Christie's previous calls to track immigrant visas like overnight packages, and for all employers to make mandatory use of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security's E–Verify system, which allows businesses to determine the eligibility of their employees to work in the U.S.

    Again, please, quote your sources. The only thing you removed was the "Giuliani said" part.

    Muholland Drive just haunts you in a way that most movies can't. It's like "The Trial" by Kafka.

    A lot of the movies on the list seem kind of brooding. L.A. Confidential should be there somewhere.

    Lizz: According to Hart, voters have given Trump more chances than he deserves and will continue to do so because they are thirsting for change and do not trust Clinton at all. Voters in Hart’s focus group reportedly compared Clinton to a step-mother and said her dishonesty made their “blood boil.” “It’s not game over yet,” Hart said.

    This was lifted from Breitbart.com writer Tony Lee. You should credit your sources.

    Clinton really took it to Trump yesterday.

    http://fortune.com/2016/08/26/hillary-clinton-speech-alt-right/

    “From the start, Donald Trump has built his campaign on prejudice and paranoia. He is taking hate groups mainstream, and helping a radical fringe take over the Republican Party. His disregard for the values that make our country great is profoundly dangerous.”

    She goes down a laundry list of examples of who Trump is and what he's done, then takes it to the people he surrounds himself with. Alt-right, Breitbart, Alex Jones, White Supremacists. She gave praise to message from Bob Dole, John McCain, and even George Bush, and said that the party of Trump isn't what the GOP is. A lot of people are saying the she gave the speech Republicans should have given a long time ago.

    bass: The Civil Rights Act of 1964 was introduced and approved by a staggering majority of Republicans in the Senate. The Act was opposed by most southern Democrat senators, several of whom were proud segregationists—one of them being Al Gore Sr. Democrat President Lyndon B. Johnson relied on Illinois Senator Everett Dirkson, the Republican leader from Illinois, to get the Act passed. And in 1963 Gov. George Wallace (D-AL) defies order by U.S. District Judge Frank Johnson, appointed by President Dwight Eisenhower, to integrate Tuskegee High School.

    The journalist of 30 years lifted the above from "Bamboozling Black America: Classified" by Malcom Wise and did not write it himself.

    The book is described as, "BAMBOOZLING BLACK AMERICA is a Fictional account of a plot to destroy Black America. Secret agencies with devious minds have hatched a plot to bring about the demise of Black people in America. The book is a collection of secret documents between secret agents that outline in detail their plans to destroy Black America. It is a novel? Is it a commentary? Is it a documentary? A history book? A guide? You be the judge!"

    bass: I could go on, but that would get a little boring.

    Yeah I'm sure you could go on and on. About 364 pages worth of his book to copy and paste.

    bass: By the way, when Obama called Southerners are people that cling to their guns and religion, I think he specifically was referring to Whites, how'd you feel about that?

    Let me guess the correct, GOP answer:

    It's outrageous. That, plus the plethora of circumstantial evidence makes you wonder how some could not think Obama is racist? I mean he said those words right there. Why does he get a free pass? What about his racism? What about blacks voting Democrat and their free stuff? Is that America?

    Racism is through the roof since Obama took office, voter fraud is real, Planned Parenthood sold baby parts, Obama is Muslim, abortion clinics are unsafe, you're going to lose your guns, Hillary is about to die, trickle-down economics works, the elections are rigged, Obama snuffed out both the FBI and Benghazi investigations, #BLM is a racist organization, Netanyahu is our ally, Obama is Kenyan, homosexuality is a choice, we can deport 11,000,000 people, the IRS targeted conservative groups, it's just a temporary ban, trans attack bathrooms, Obama caused the explosion of social safety spending after the recession, Sharia law is in America, we have an Obamacare alternative, cutting taxes works, a wall is effective, I know what foreign leaders are thinking, I heart Putin/Assange, I'm a reporter of 30 years with little to no grammar skills, saying racist things doesn't make you racist, creationism is schools, the media is biased, illegals go to the front of the line, the solution is more guns, STAND DOWN, the Democrats founded the KKK, and, finally: the GOP can govern.

    How'd I do?

    I don't think Trump is doing it because he wants white voters to think he's getting more palatable. I think people like him and a lot of the GOP really are out of touch with minorities. Remember that he's the guy who took a picture with a taco salad and thought it would impress Latino voters. That wasn't staged, that was just an insulated white man being aloof when trying to talk to minorities.

    Clinton has the support of the black community because she has invested time in the black community during her political career. Just ask them. It's not rocket science. During that same time Trump was sued and settled with the US government over discriminatory housing practices and says stupid things like, "Oh, look at my African-American over here." Or, maybe this will help: Trump = history of racism. Clinton = history of engagement. I'm really struggling to find ways to break it down into it's most basic form for Republicans.

    Even if your pie in the sky non-descriptive promise of future riches if you vote GOP turns out to be 100% true, you have to admit, minorities would have to look past a lot of racism. Based on a promise from the racists.

    Are you arguing for more duplexes and apartments?

    You haven't seen rage until you've seen an out-of-control single family home.

    bass: Now to be fair and not partisan, what do they have to lose? Try and see and if it doesn't work, then continue with the same policies, but at this point. All of the Black communities will never move up and never throw off the chains of government dependency as long as Democrats feed these people more Big government, more entitlements.

    Oh, boy. They're actually going to do this.

    Bass, you can't just post numbers on poverty and think you've made some kind of case that black people should be Republican. And maybe minority support for Democrats actually has something to do with things that aren't free handouts. Follow me on this one.

    The Democrats nominated and elected the first black President. How do you think that resonates with minorities? We've just nominated a woman as well. A vast majority of minorities in Congress are Democrats. That means minorities will be able to identify with them to a greater extent. Look at who the Democrats have put on the Supreme Court: Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Stephen Breyer, Sonia Sotomayor, and Elena Kagan. Again, diversity and inclusion, and I'm sure you would understand how that would help the image of the party with minorities.

    Look at GOP legislation. Voter suppression laws that have been proven to disproportionately affect blacks negatively. Recent rulings explicitly state that the laws are discriminatory. How do you think that headline plays out in minority communities? And the gerrymandering? How about laws that ban voting on the Sunday before an election when it's known that a large number of American Americans organize at churches and bus over to the polling places? How can they not feel that your party is targeting them?

    I mean my gosh, Trump's own company discriminated against blacks and your main point is about all the free stuff the lazy minorities just can't turn away from. And you think you're clever with, "why not?" Only someone who is completely oblivious to the above would utter that.

    “I say, what do you have to lose?"

    Believe it or not there are middle class Hispanics in this country, people who own houses and cars and have jobs. Are you talking to them? Because it kind of sounds like you're saying that you're already Hispanic, so what do you have to lose?

    Stuff like this is going to haunt Republicans. It's surprising that they don't have anyone on their side stepping in to stop this kind of talk. They are either that out of touch or they really are just going for the white vote.

    Hope they do! Shut it down!

    Uh, bass, no one wants to see it shut down since it helps so many people. What people want is for Bill and Hillary to no longer be involved in it if they're going to be working for the US government at the same time. Seems fair to me.

    The fact is that just about anyone can get away with buying a politician. I'm a bit rusty on this, but the laws are mostly useless since you need an absolute smoking gun to convict someone of bribery. You need proof that the politician said they would do favor X for person Y if he donates $Z. Otherwise, you could say that you're just a citizen looking to donate money to a party/person so you met with them to get their views, liked them, and decided to write the check to them. And it had nothing to do with some permits for new construction that you just happened to need right now and the city just happened to decide to approve. If there's no explicit tit-for-tat that is verifiable, then not much can be done.

    Someone else might want to chime in if I'm wrong.

    Lizz, since this topic is in your area of research, can you get us details about Trump's donations to Florida officials? Something about the state considering joining the Trump U lawsuit, then Trump donates 25k, then a few days later the state decided not to participate. Is there anything there we should be aware of? I haven't independently researched it yet.

    bass: giving Hillary a pass for a very long is just bad, bad, bad.

    But what about Trump? ALWAYS giving him a pass is OK?

    Hillary and the shenanigans she's been causing

    What about Trump's actions? Totally PERFECT???

    the MSM downright ignoring it

    You Repubs always think everything you do is OK while the sainted Anointed one Trump gets away with murder. BLM? BLM? But it's perfectly fine for Trump to discriminate against blacks? You ALWAYS give him a free pass on EVERYTHING and I'm tyred of it. Even Sanders' fans hate Trump.

    Just rewrite it like this: (donor) gets face time with (politician).

    bass: Thank you Hillary for the quirks, you'll be receiving a check in the mail soon.

    But it's OK when Republicans do it?

    As long as they do their job and keep pounding this woman

    What about Trump? You want to pound Clinton while giving Trump a free pass on everything?

    Trump's former manager was secretly working on behalf of a foreign government while trying to make Trump President. At the very least there should be an investigation. And we should also see Trump's tax returns to make sure there is no conflict of interest.

    So why is the biased MSM printing this about Clinton and not Trump?
