Default Trump Takes Heat For Golfing During Pandemic, Blames Obama For Some Reason...

The video, which Biden posted to his Twitter account on Saturday, features a bar graph tracking coronavirus-related deaths in the U.S. The bar on the graph steadily rises as footage of what appears to be Trump golfing plays in the background.

In the past, Trump had repeatedly criticized Obama for playing the sport. In 2014, when the second Ebola case was confirmed in the United States, Trump went on Fox News to bash the then-president for golfing. “There are times to play and times that you can’t play. It sends the wrong signal,” he said.

Well well well, it looks like the Golfstream's on the other foot now doesn't it...
UPDATE:Trump apparently feels he’s being held to an unfair “double standard” since Obama also recently went golfing. But one of these men is currently the U.S. president; the other is not.

Obama’s golf game has preoccupied Trump for years, long before Trump even took office.

In December 2011, Trump accused then-President Obama of playing golf “to escape work while America goes down the drain.”

In 2014 he tweeted, “Can you believe that, with all of the problems and difficulties facing the U.S., President Obama spent the day playing golf.”

As with so many of Trump’s tweets, they’re now starkly hypocritical. The amount of days Trump has spent on a golf course is more than two and a half times Obama’s total at the same point in his first term.

Worse, Trump’s insistence on playing at his own courses means Trump is lining his pockets at taxpayers’ expense every time he hits the links. To date, Trump’s golf tab has cost taxpayers more than $133.8 million ― equal to 334 years of the presidential salary that Trump and his supporters frequently boast he isn’t taking.

Default Coronavirus infections are rising as states reopen....

On Sunday, President Trump, ever the optimist, tweeted that coronavirus “Cases, numbers and deaths are going down all over the Country!” Two days later, both Reuters and the New York Times reported that new daily cases of COVID-19 — which have been falling for weeks, both nationally and in the hardest-hit metropolitan areas — suddenly and simultaneously started to rise in more than a dozen states.

The Times counted 14 states where the rolling seven-day average of new infections has climbed over the last two weeks. Narrowing the timeframe and focusing on the total weekly case count, Reuters found that 20 states reported an increase in new infections during the week ending May 24, up from 13 states the week before.

Most of the affected states were among the first to reopen in late April or early May: Alabama, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, Nevada, South Carolina, Tennessee and West Virginia. In others — Arkansas, North Dakota, Oklahoma — statewide stay-at-home orders were never issued, but businesses that had been closed began reopening around the same time.

Default Wisconsin reports record number of new coronavirus cases, deaths...

Wisconsin saw a record number of new coronavirus cases and deaths reported in a single day on Wednesday, two weeks after the state’s Supreme Court struck down its statewide stay-at-home order. The state reported 599 new known COVID-19 cases on Wednesday with 22 known deaths, according to Wisconsin’s Department of Health Services, the highest recorded daily rise since the pandemic began there. As of Wednesday, the state had more than 16,460 known cases and 539 known deaths, according to the department.

On May 13, Wisconsin’s Supreme Court struck down the state’s stay-at-home order during the pandemic as "unlawful, invalid, and unenforceable" after finding that the state's health secretary exceeded her authority. The order had put Evers at odds with the state's Republic-controlled legislature.
Some local officials, including those in Milwaukee and Madison, have since instituted their own regulations.

On a personal note, whoever is in charge of Brown County appears to be asleep at the wheel! According to reports from my nephew, some dummies have been gathering in bars, not practicing social distancing, and just acting like idiots in general!

Default Seattle under mandatory curfew amid violent protests after George Floyd rally..

Q13 News crew witnessed multiple police cruisers set ablaze, other vehicle fires, and people breaking into retail stores and other businesses. A police spokeswoman, Sgt. Lauren Truscott, said some people were arrested, though she didn’t have an exact figure.

Gov. Jay Inslee activated up to 200 members of the Washington National Guard in response to a request from the City of Seattle. The National Guard is on stand by to assist the Seattle Police Department as requested by Mayor Durkan," Inslee said. "They will be unarmed and assist with infrastructure protection and crowd movement. They will only be utilized if absolutely necessary and we appreciate their efforts to help in this important work."

Thumbs up

i would like to offer a different perspective..it's not evil to feel pissed about what is happening to black men in this country, George Floyd, is the latest. fyi, In Minneapolis alone, the compressing of necks has been done 44 times in the past 5 years. Police should not have the power of life & death.



Most of the protests are peaceful but there are fringe groups, white supremacists, anarchists who want to burn everything down. and use the peaceful protests as cover. Be informed. Don't spread misinformation.

Default Trump angers American religious leaders with Bible photo op..

Washington (AFP) - American religious leaders on Tuesday castigated Donald Trump for posing in front of a church holding a Bible after peaceful protesters were violently cleared from the surrounding area. "It was traumatic and deeply offensive, in the sense that something sacred was being misused for a political gesture," Washington's Episcopal Bishop Mariann Budde said on public radio station NPR.


And former Vice President Joe Biden, the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee, said in a Tuesday speech: “The president held up the Bible at St John’s Church yesterday. I just wish he'd opened it once in a while, instead of brandishing it.”

Benjamin Crump (the Floyd family lawyer) you are disgusting. Dragging around Floyd's son, like Trump in Lafayette Park waving the bible, just so you can get on tv and run your mouth for 15-20 minutes with words that were not helpful. You spoke in a manner to incite the people gathered at the site of Floyd's death and did not offer any measure of comfort to them. You went on and on in great detail about how Floyd was murdered while his son, your prop, was made to stand there and listen to your words. You are the perfect example of someone who had their 15 minutes of fame (Treyvon Martin case) and then run around leaching off any family of color who has the misfortune to end up in a similar situation.

Default DING DONG: Steve King, House Republican With a History of Racist Remarks, Loses Primary

Steve King, House Republican With a History of Racist Remarks, Loses Primary

Mr. King, one of the nation’s most divisive elected officials, saw his power in Congress curtailed last year after he questioned why white supremacy was considered offensive.

By Trip Gabriel
June 3, 2020
Updated 1:36 a.m. ET

Representative Steve King of Iowa, the nine-term Republican with a history of racist comments who only recently became a party pariah, lost his bid for renomination early Wednesday, one of the biggest defeats of the 2020 primary season in any state.

Mr. King was defeated by Randy Feenstra, a state senator, who had the backing of mainstream state and national Republicans who found Mr. King an embarrassment and, crucially, a threat to a safe Republican seat if he were on the ballot in November.

The loss was most likely the final political blow to one of the nation’s most divisive elected officials, whose insults of undocumented immigrants foretold the messaging of President Trump, and whose flirtations with extremism led him far from rural Iowa, to meetings with anti-Muslim crusaders in Europe and an endorsement of a Toronto mayoral candidate with neo-Nazi ties.

In interviews over the years, voters in Iowa’s most conservative region downplayed Mr. King’s incendiary comments. His loss after 18 years in office was mainly because opponents painted him as ineffective after party leaders in Congress stripped him of his committee assignments last year.
That move came after comments that Mr. King made in an interview with The New York Times in 2019, in which he asked, “White nationalist, white supremacist, Western civilization — how did that language become offensive?”

The remarks caused an uproar. Senator Mitch McConnell, the Republican majority leader, told Mr. King to “find another line of work.”

Instead, Mr. King clung to his seat, claiming to be the victim of Republican insiders and of the news media.

Now Mr. Feenstra, a political and social conservative in a deep-red district in northwest Iowa, is the odds-on favorite to hold the seat against J.D. Scholten, who nearly defeated Mr. King two years ago and ran unopposed in the Democratic primary.

The belief that Mr. King, who had crushed earlier primary opponents, was vulnerable this year drew four challengers, including Mr. Feenstra; Jeremy Taylor, a former state lawmaker; and two businessmen, Bret Richards and Steve Reeder. All four opponents campaigned as equally conservative as Mr. King on red-meat issues like abortion and gun rights, but they promised more effective representation of the district after Mr. King lost his committee assignments.

“Our Fourth District desperately needs a seat at the table,” Mr. Feenstra said at a debate last month, calling for the district to have “an effective conservative voice.”

Although there was a question of whether the four challengers would split voters opposed to Mr. King too many ways and allow him to skate through, Mr. Feenstra’s margin was decisive, 46 percent to 36 percent for Mr. King.

In comments Mr. King recorded on Facebook after his loss, he said none of his challengers had taken issue with “a single statement that I have made” during his career, and he urged Iowans to continue to “teach our children well” about “values we care about,” including opposition to abortion and same-sex marriage.

His defeat, he said, was the result of “an effort to push out the strongest voice for full-spectrum constitutional, Christian conservatism” in Congress.

Mr. Feenstra promised during the campaign to be an unflagging social and fiscal conservative in Congress. “I’ll fight with President Trump to build the wall,” he said at a candidate forum, boasting that he had voted in the Iowa Senate to ban “sanctuary cities” and defund Planned Parenthood. As a lawmaker, he co-sponsored a bill to define life as beginning at conception. He ran on his support of Iowa’s largest tax cut in history, in 2018, which a state Department of Revenue analysis showed aimed the highest benefits to the wealthy.

Mr. Feenstra was the preferred candidate of establishment Republicans, and he easily outraised Mr. King, bringing in $925,800 to Mr. King’s $331,000. He won endorsements from the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and the National Right to Life Committee. And in an extraordinary rebuke of Mr. King by House colleagues, five Republican congressmen donated to Mr. Feenstra’s campaign.

Anticipating the general election, Mr. Scholten on Wednesday indicated he would run a populist campaign around economic issues, while accusing Mr. Feenstra of siding with corporate donors. “Not being Steve King isn’t enough for this district,” he said. “It won’t be enough to revitalize rural communities, ensure farmers get a fair price and can stay on their land, or for families to afford health care and save for retirement. We need someone with vision and the ability to bring people together. That’s not Feenstra.”

During the primary, Mr. Feenstra refrained from attacking Mr. King’s years of demeaning comments about immigrants — he once compared Dreamers to drug mules “with calves the size of cantaloupes” — and instead portrayed the congressman as powerless to help Iowans.

Mr. King, 71, claimed during the campaign that Representative Kevin McCarthy of California, the House Republican leader, had privately pledged to help him regain his committee assignments. But Mr. McCarthy denied having said any such thing, adding that if the Republican Steering Committee, which decides on committee roles, met again to weigh in on Mr. King, he would not win back his posts.

Even before facing Republican discipline in the House in January 2019 after the Times interview, Mr. King was in electoral trouble. He just barely won re-election in 2018 over Mr. Scholten, a former professional baseball player, by three percentage points — in a district Mr. Trump carried by nearly 30 points.

Just before that election, the head of the Republican House campaign arm, Representative Steve Stivers of Ohio, denounced Mr. King for his endorsement of the Toronto mayoral candidate, Faith Goldy, who has espoused white nationalism, and for comments seeming to embrace the “Great Replacement,” a far-right conspiracy theory. “We must stand up against white supremacy and hate in all forms, and I strongly condemn this behavior,” Mr. Stivers said at the time.

A paradox of Mr. King’s career is that, in his anti-immigrant language and policies, he was years ahead of Mr. Trump, who won the presidency by stirring fears about nonwhite immigrants.

Well before Mr. Trump promised to build a wall on the southwest border, Mr. King, who founded an earth-moving company, stood on the House floor and showed off a model of a 12-foot border wall of his own design.

Soon after Mr. Trump took office, he invited Mr. King — who even then was snubbed by establishment Republicans like the former House speaker John A. Boehner — to the Oval Office. The president boasted to Mr. King of having supported him, and raised money for him during an Iowa visit in 2014, Mr. King told The Times.

In the past, Mr. King routinely won the backing of other Iowa Republicans, including Gov. Kim Reynolds, who named him a co-chair of her 2018 election campaign. He sought to be a kingmaker in presidential politics given Iowa’s early-voting role. In 2015 he played host to a forum for 2016 hopefuls, including Mr. Trump, who attacked Jeb Bush for saying that immigrants enter the United States in an “act of love.”

“Say what?” Mr. Trump said. “Half of them are criminals!”

“For two decades Steve King has been something of the sun in the political universe around here,” Douglas Burns, an owner of newspapers in Mr. King’s district, said on Tuesday night. “I’ll still have to see the eclipse tomorrow to believe these results.”

President Donald Trump, First Lady Melania Trump, and their son Barron were rushed to a secure bunker on Friday after protesters breached temporary fences outside the White House, The Washington Post reported Wednesday.

Four protesters were detained by Secret Service in the incident, according to arrest records reviewed by The Post. The barricade breach elevated the alert level at the White House from "yellow" to "red." This new reporting is at odds with Trump's Wednesday claim that reports that he was taken to the bunker for his safety amid the protests were "false," and that he instead visited the bunker simply to inspect it.

"They said it would be a good time to go down and take a look because maybe sometime you're going to need it," Trump told Fox News radio on Wednesday morning.

James Mattis former defense secretary denounces President Trump....


“Donald Trump is the first president in my lifetime who does not try to unite the American people—does not even pretend to try. Instead, he tries to divide us,” Mattis writes. “We are witnessing the consequences of three years of this deliberate effort. We are witnessing the consequences of three years without mature leadership. We can unite without him, drawing on the strengths inherent in our civil society. This will not be easy, as the past few days have shown, but we owe it to our fellow citizens; to past generations that bled to defend our promise; and to our children.”

Then of course, thin skinned Trump had to jump on Twitter & tweet about Mattis being the worst "_______ "fill in the blank!

Lisa Murkowski, drew Trump’s ire earlier Thursday when she concurred with former Defense Secretary Jim Mattis’ sharp critiques of the president over his response to the death of George Floyd, an unarmed African American man, at the hands of police in Minneapolis, and the subsequent nationwide protests sparked by the killing.

“I thought General Mattis’ words were true, and honest, and necessary, and overdue,” Murkowski told reporters after Mattis wrote that Trump was threatening the Constitution and trying to pit Americans against each other. When asked whether she could still support Trump, Murkowski said she was “struggling with it.”

Trump responded as he typically does: with a Twitter thread.

“Few people know where they’ll be in two years from now, but I do, in the Great State of Alaska (which I love) campaigning against Senator Lisa Murkowski,” Trump wrote, noting that Murkowski voted against the GOP efforts to repeal the Affordable Care Act and opposed Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination to the Supreme Court.

“Get any candidate ready, good or bad, I don’t care, I’m endorsing. If you have a pulse, I’m with you!” the president concluded.

THIS IS THE DAY....JUNE 5, 1833.

Ada Lovelace meets Charles Babbage and invents the first computer program


In an age when it wasn’t expected, Ada Lovelace learned history, languages, music, chemistry and mathematics. When she was barely a teenager, in the late 1820s, she wanted to learn to fly and studied birds for her book on “flyology,” as she put it. She never got off the ground but did take flight in another sense. On June 5, 1833, she met the brilliant polymath Charles Babbage, the Londoner who is considered the inventor of the first mechanical computer, the Difference Engine, and its more sophisticated successor, the Analytical Engine. Ms. Lovelace took the concept of Mr. Babbage’s computer to a new level, where she imagined it could create as well as merely calculate as it “weaves algebraic patterns just as the Jacquard loom weaves flowers and leaves.” When she was 27, she published what many modern-day computer scientists consider the first computer program, which would use Mr. Babbage’s Analytical Engine (never built) to calculate Bernoulli numbers, used in number theory. In her writings, she foresaw that "a new, a vast and a powerful language is developed for the future use of analysis.” Only in recent years has her pioneering contribution to the digital age been fully recognized.

Default All four living ex-presidents draw a sharp contrast with Trump on systemic racism..

Four U.S. presidents spoke this week about systemic racism and injustice. They used their platforms to illuminate the humanity in all Americans and to decry the dehumanization of some. And they summoned the nation to confront its failures, make change and come together.

A fifth U.S. president spoke instead this week about using military force to dominate Americans who are protesting racial injustice. He declared winners and losers among state and city officials trying to safeguard their streets. And, with his reelection campaign in mind, he sought to apply a partisan political lens to the national reckoning over racial inequities.

Default Trump demanded full crowd at Republican convention...

WASHINGTON - President Donald Trump made his demands for the planned Republican National Convention in Charlotte quite clear to North Carolina Gov. Roy Cooper, who had balked at agreeing to a mass gathering of tens of thousands of delegates, allies and media.

In a phone call, Trump told the Democratic governor he would accept his party's nomination in an arena filled with cheering supporters, coronavirus pandemic or not. "Since the day I came down the escalator, I've never had an empty seat and I find the biggest stadiums," he told Cooper on Friday, according to two people familiar with the call who requested anonymity to share its contents. "I don't want to be sitting in a place that's 50 percent empty," Trump said.

Trump's obsession with crowd size and the spectacle he insisted should greet his renomination came on a day during which extraordinary pressure was building on other fronts, as protesters against police violence began to mass near the White House and in cities and towns across America. Trump, in the roughly 15-minute conversation, casually dismissed any health concerns that might arise from squeezing thousands of supporters - wearing masks only if they choose to - inside an arena to hear his acceptance speech. The full details of the call have not previously been reported. The White House did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

The president's call to Cooper - who unsuccessfully pleaded, by praising Trump, that the president abide by restrictions set by health officials - came on the same day Trump called Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, a Republican, to see whether he might host the convention on Trump's terms. Cooper has insisted that it is too early to determine what will be safe for the convention, scheduled to be held Aug. 24-27. Trump had a blunt response to Cooper's reminders about the potential cost of crowding so many people into a closed arena.

"We can't do social distancing," the president said, according to the two people familiar with the call.

The Friday conversation was the second time that week that Trump inserted himself into the middle of a two-year planning process for his party's convention and derailed ongoing talks about how to safely hold a mass gathering in the midst of a pandemic. He began the week with a Memorial Day broadside against Cooper in which he mocked the governor as still being "in shutdown mood."

The fallout has sent RNC officials shuttling around the country to consider other options. Possible replacements include Jacksonville and Orlando in Florida, Nashville, New Orleans and even Las Vegas, the only other city that submitted a formal bid to host the convention back in 2018. Also in play are Phoenix, the site of a major anti-Trump rally in 2017, and Dallas, according to a Republican operative.

A Republican familiar with the talks said RNC officials are asking those cities to approve the convention on Trump's terms: without social distancing or required masks. As those talks proceed, the convention host committee pushed Thursday for a meeting in Charlotte to "resolve open questions as expeditiously as possible," according to a copy of the invitation.

Those familiar with the call who recounted it for The Post described it as cordial, even as Trump pushed the Democratic governor to overrule public health concerns and accelerate reopening.

"We're in a different situation now," Cooper said at one point. He asked Trump to allow the RNC to negotiate a scaled down event.Trump replied: "We can't do scaled down." At one point during the call, Cooper pushed back, according to the two people familiar with the conversation. He asked Trump whether he was worried about his supporters, and the possibility that they would become sick.

"No, I'm not because we've learned a lot about it," Trump said, referring to the coronavirus.
