Some direct observations on Charlottesville from Arnold Schwarzenegger.

The GGNRA (Golden Gate National Recreation Area) is reviewing the permit for the planned August 26th march at Crissy Field. They are expected to rule on this within seven days.

San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee, Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi, and Senator Dianne Feinstein have asked the GGNRA to reconsider issuing the permit.

In a video posted to Facebook, Patriot Prayer organizer Joey Gibson said accusations that his rally was a white supremacist event were "lies."

"We have a black speaker, we have two Hispanic speakers, we got a brown man right here, we got a transsexual," Gibson said. "We ain't talking about race, we're talking about love, about God."

Those wishing to comment on the permit can email at goga_1st_amendment@nps.gov

No, there aren't 'many sides,' Mr. Trump. There is the side where America and Americans stand, and then there's the patch of dirt where you're standing.

Charles Krauthammer has something to say ...

(I'm sharing the National Review link, rather than HuffPo, so that it's clear that conservative voices, generally held in esteem by conservatives, are calling out Trump's equivocation on Charlottesville what it is: a shameful display of moral ineptitude and pandering to those marching under the flag of America's enemy in World War II.)

Where did the term, 'alt-left' come from?

Oh, just stellar exemplars like Sean Hannity and the NRA.

The use of the term “alt-left" appears to be "a way to point out that there are also extremists on the left — a fact that these conservatives believe is being ignored," The Post's Aaron Blake wrote.

He added that the "difference between alt-right and alt-left is that one of them was coined by the people who comprise the movement and whose movement is clearly ascendant; the other was coined by its opponents and doesn't actually have any subscribers."

Does 'Not All Men' ring a bell? Because Trump is playing, 'Not All White Supremacists.'

Perhaps more than marginally pertinent to the current state of American leadership, the story of the 'perfect candidate' and the man who creates him.

"I'm sure there were good people in the groups that had various opinions on the removal or maintenance of the statue," Bossert said. "But what they found when they showed up were groups from outside that showed up on both sides, looking for trouble, dressed in riot gear, prepared for violence."

"These groups showed up spewing hate. These groups showed up looking for violence."

Asked what groups he was referring to, Bossert replied, "I refer to the groups that clashed yesterday."

Excerpted from: http://www.cnn.com/2017/08/13/politics/charlottesville-mayor-michael-signer-cnntv/index.html

Mr. Bossert, driving your car into a crowd, killing one person and injuring 19 others is spewing hate/looking for violence/clashing.

Showing up to speak out and march in opposition to Nazi propaganda is not.

I mean, seriously? When was the Civil War a battle between the Union and the Wehrmacht? The Trump Administration's non-condemnation of the white supremacists in Charlottesville - continued even in your 'both sides' bullshit - is disgusting.

When someone avoids answering a relatively direct question, it is very often a sign that they are lying or otherwise withholding the truth.

We have seen this before with Mr. Trump, most notably in an interview with CBS' John Dickerson, in which Trump kept deflecting Dickerson's questions, became irate, and ended the interview abruptly.

So, no. We don't 'know the answer,' Mr. Trump. And we have no reason to believe you will be particularly restrained in word or deed.

Trump threatened 'fire and fury the likes of which the world has never seen' during the 72nd Anniversary of the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. We can only conclude that the statement was deliberate and intended to evoke the imagery of the only wartime use of nuclear weapons ... or Trump is an idiot who is completely ignorant of fundamentals of United States history, and shouldn't be left unattended by whatever supervising adults are present (if there are any).

Breaking News from the Associated Press:

Trump says he won't 'rule out' military option in Venezuela, says it's 'something that we could pursue.'

Also, he continues to amplify his threats against North Korea.

A timely reminder from the 1985 computer game, Balance of Power.

You have ignited a nuclear war. And, no, there is no animated display of a mushroom cloud with parts of bodies flying through the air. We do not reward failure.
