"When will we start treating white supremacy seriously and investigating these groups like the gangs they are? Is that even possible now that we have a president who surrounds himself with people like Steve Bannon, who has profited off providing a hospitable environment for white nationalist rhetoric? Today I wonder where all of the right-wing I-love-the-troops voices are — to speak up for Collins and his family. I’m not seeing much conservative commentary on his tragic incident, and I’m sure that his family could use the support."

Indeed... Where are the words of outrage and sympathy from the likes of +Ken Carlos​? By his "logic", not saying anything about Collins' murder means he must support the murderer.

"I’m so old I remember when Donald Trump promised to destroy ISIS in the first 30 days of his (gag) presidency."

Trump has been lying to the American people all along.

This surprises no one.

The Russian government was in touch with members of President-elect Donald Trump's political team during the U.S. election campaign and knows most of his entourage, one of Russia's most senior diplomats told the Interfax news agency on Thursday.

Accused by defeated Democratic contender Hillary Clinton of being a puppet of President Vladimir Putin after praising the Russian leader, Trump has dismissed suggestions he had anything to do with the Russian government during the campaign.

But in comments that could prove politically awkward for the president-elect, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov said there had indeed been some communications.

"There were contacts," Interfax cited Ryabkov as saying. "We are doing this and have been doing this during the election campaign."

Such contacts would continue, he added, saying the Russian government knew and had been in touch with many of Trump's closest allies. He did not name names.

Hatemongers like +Ken Carlos are terrorist collaborators. They are the useful idiots that ISIS rely upon to drive moderate Muslims into to extremist camp.

ISIS took credit for a horrific series of bombings in Brussels, Beligum on Monday which killed at least 30 people.

Even before the extremist group claimed responsibility, anti-Muslim sentiment exploded. The hashtag #StopIslam was trending globally on Twitter.

Far-right politicians peddled Islamophobic rancor and tapped into xenophobic bigotry, exploiting the tragedy as a political opportunity. Republican frontrunner Donald Trump reaffirmed his support for torture and called for closing up the U.S.’s borders. Fellow GOP presidential candidate Ted Cruz likewise maintained that police should even more aggressively “patrol and secure Muslim neighborhoods.”

As has become painfully customary, the double standards in the discussion of the attacks were immediately apparent. When white right-wing extremists massacre people at a women’s health clinic, bomb a federal government building in Oklahoma City or fly a plane into an IRS building in Austin, Texas, white right-wingers are not immediately blamed. But when Islamic extremists kill people, not only are the world’s 1.7 billion Muslims collectively blamed, their 1,500-year-old religion is too.

What is even more insidious — and dangerous — about this predictable anti-Muslim, racist, xenophobic response, however, is not just how hateful and destructive it is. The fact of the matter is that Islamophobes are directly playing into ISIS’ hands.

ISIS has explicitly stated that its goal is to eliminate what it calls the “gray zone,” the space within which Muslims are accepted in the West. The so-called Islamic State wants all of the world’s Muslims to accept its violent, extremist distortion of religion, and purposefully inflames anti-Muslim, racist and xenophobic sentiment in the West in hopes of pressuring them to do so.

In the February 2015 edition of its online magazine Dabiq, ISIS published a 13-page article titled “The Extinction of the Grayzone.”

“The grayzone is critically endangered, rather on the brink of extinction,” the extremist group wrote in the feature. “Its endangerment began with the blessed operations of September 11th, as these operations manifested two camps before the world for mankind to choose between, a camp of Islam — without the body of Khilāfah to represent it at the time — and a camp of kufr — the crusader coalition.”

ISIS rejoiced at the fact that, after the 9/11 attacks, the West had divided the world into a Manichean fight between the good and the bad. In its article, ISIS quoted Osama bin Laden, who said “The world today is divided into two camps. Bush spoke the truth when he said, ‘Either you are with us or you are with the terrorists.’ Meaning, either you are with the crusade or you are with Islam.”

This passage demonstrates exactly how Islamophobes serve ISIS’ propaganda. Osama bin Laden himself, the founder of al-Qaeda, favorably quoted former President George W. Bush’s bifurcation of the world into us and them.

Some poor ignorant dimwits think that renewable energy is a dying industry. One would have to ask, then, why employment in that sector keeps growing.

Highlights from Solar Jobs Census 2016:

• One out of every 50 new jobs added in the United States in 2016 was created by the solar industry, representing 2% percent of all new jobs.

• Solar jobs in the United States have increased at least 20 percent per year for the past four years, and jobs have nearly tripled since the first Solar Jobs Census was released in 2010.

• Over the next 12 months, employers surveyed expect to see total solar industry employment increase by 10 percent to 286,335 solar workers.

• In 2016, the five states with the most solar jobs were California, Massachusetts, Texas, Nevada, and Florida.

• The solar industry added $84 billion to the US GDP in 2016 – See the Economic Impact 2016 Fact Sheet for more impact details.

He howled at Michelle Obama for having uncovered hair, when she visited Riyadh… and now Ivanka and Melania went uncovered. Screamed at Obama for bowing his head to receive a necklace medal… then DT does the same. And earlier GW Bush kissed Saudi princes on the mouth and walked with them holding hands. DT railed at the Saudis on the campaign trail, and now they are best pals. He promised proof that Obama was Kenyan and muslim, and now shrugs off all such vows with chuckles.

Seriously, is no hypocrisy beyond you redders? On any single day of the Trump Administration… any one… he or administration officials have done things that would have you hypocrites screeching for revolution, had a democrat done anything remotely like it.

Now he’s howling ‘witch hunt” because there’s an independent counsel, when the air reeks of outright treason with foreign foes? FIVE special prosecutors were sent sniffing every corner of the Bill Clinton Administration. Reagan and Bush Sr got once each, with this difference. Dozens of high Reagan and Bush officials wound up being indicted and convicted, confessing to felonies. Did all the witch hunts under Clinton and Obama bear similar fruit?

All they ever came up with was a husband fibbing about some adult-consensual 3rd-base infidelity in a hallway.

Clinton and Obama had the only two, 8-year administrations with ZERO high officials convicted or even indicted for actual malfeasance of office - the only times that ever happened. And it happened despite over a billion dollars and 25 years of frantic probing by their enemies, desperately sifting every file and cabinet for some smoking gun, anything at all. The worst you nut-jobs ever found was Hillary making the same mistake with her email system that Colin Powell and Newt Gingrich made, with zero harm done. Ohhhh, lock her up!

Just the fact that DT insists on continuing to use his easily hacked old Galaxy S3 is twenty times the security breach, one out of hundreds spilling from that clown car. Hypocrites.
