“From this day forward it’s going to be only America first.” Trump (January 20, 2017)

Your President?

With that short clip duly noted, let's move to action behind his words.

During last week's immigration meeting in the White House, Trump responded to comments about non-white (nation) immigration in a most racist manner.

“Why are we having all these people from s***hole countries come here?”  
He asked to know why the US would not instead accept people from places like Norway, whose prime minister he had met with the day before.
 After a day or two of protest and condemnation, Trump took to his favorite communication media and did this.


Alas, words to American stated to place or mitigate concern for Trump's racism.  Alos words which without question are pleasing tot he ears of white supremacist, Nazis, and various other social degenerates.

Image may contain: text

While all media other than Fox News, various conservative media and far-right nutcase broadcasting like Info Wars find Trump's remarks abhorrent and shameful, none have yet spoken more eloquently than a segment broadcast last night on CNN.

The segment runs for eight full minutes, but it is critical to hear and see perspectives on Trump's comments with consideration of a future America.

TPI Gazette: Trumpism And A Party Dripping With Racism

Non-Progressive News...

Donald Trump hires, a far right operative who not only has issues with African-Americans (and we assume Latinos), he has issues with Jewish people.  Would Trump go there despite probable support from Adelson?

Now for a quick look at the deep psyche of million across America. As you read and view what follows, you may want to seriously contemplate the level and scope of increasing overuse of racism and racially charged language from the Right. Yes, of course, some on the Right will point to the Left with accusations of "they do it also." Well, in my entire lifetime, I have yet to see or hear a confessed liberal use the "No" word. We are not saying it doesn't take place; we are stating it doesn't show on media, on email, not via any surreptitiously secured communication. 

"The nigger won." (Click image)

Further comment...unnecessary.

If you wonder why such comments have seemed to ooze under the surface among some int eh GOP, think in terms of the proliferation fo such remarks since President Obama was inaugurated in 2009. Also, think about the current overt manifestation of far Right extremists, white supremacists and white nationalist who openly support the GOP and its nascent party leader: Donald Trump. Anti-Trump ad

Did you hear this voicemail left by the Governor of Maine?  (Courtesy Mother Jones) I should add, the Republican governor of Maine. Another GOP governor makes the news for again foraying into guttural levels. An interesting aspect of the Maine governor's disgust? The impetus for the call (voice phone recording) wasn't even a charge of racism. As you view what follows, you will find concern for "high powered" heroin currently in the news. And, yes LaPage has a history of laying his state's drug abuse solely to drug dealers and pimps form Connecticut and New York City. 
Paul LePage, Maine's Governor: “I would like to talk to you about your comments about my being a racist, you c*cksucker," he politely asked...
We have posted below two video segments including video. While we realize there is inherent redundancy in the dual posts, we feel it critical to post a segment in which the actual legislator threatened by the governor.



LePage later invited the Press Herald to his house, where he continued to rail against the “snot-nosed little guy” and say he would’ve loved challenging Gattine to a duel.
“That’s how angry I am, and I would not put my gun in the air, I guarantee you, I would not be (Alexander) Hamilton. I would point it right between his eyes, because he is a snot-nosed little runt and he has not done a damn thing since he’s been in this Legislature to help move the state forward.”

While all MSNBC hosts (and shows) have broadcast regarding LaPage's latest racist manifestation, Joy Ann Reid's early morning broadcast does it best. We prefer the segment because Reid's is the first show to book the Maine legislator LaPage threatened.

Again, each MSNBC host broadcast a segment. Last night's Rachel Maddow show segment was very detailed (albeit it way too long), and I also believe Chris Hayes and Lawrence O'Donnell broadcast notable pieces.  

One more report from CNN: Roger Stone's racism ostracized from CNN.

Rience Priebus "Where Fore Art Thou?"

It is amazing I am still seeing people on news broadcasts, alleged unbiased potential voters, saying they will take their decision right down to the wire. Really?

The Daily GOP Ignominious: When GOP Politics Enable (Racism Blossoms)

When GOP politics enable...

Unfortunately, as politics go,so goes America.  

Have you ever shared time among a group of co-workers or a group of friends and noticed an intriguing human dynamics take shape without discussion, plan, or happenstance. One such dynamic is non-anointed group leaders. People as part of the group (without any voting) seem to move one of more of its members to that person others look to for formal or informal leadership and in some cases the person to literally follow. It evolves via common and normal interaction and it can develop without concerted efforts to advance the dynamic by the "leader . The dynamic is a natural evolution of, and is probably common to, any breathing species (animal, fish, bird). And, as human beings, any group which shares common life experiences and, or, who share a common ideology, will experience the dynamic naturally, if it is not established via common forms of appointment such as the act of voting.

Thus, we as human beings are ultimately influenceable and we are potential pawns or items of manipulation for the gifted orator or the crafty behind the scenes operator. Of course, we from time to time run across the person who is gifted in both behind the scenes interaction as well as gifted as an orator: Barack Obama.  A rarity indeed and certainly not the leader of our time of 2016 politicking; whom we are about to expose.

Yes, we are referring to Donald J. Trump, the nascent leader of the GOP and his success in providing a path for conservative America to come out of their bigoted and racists closet. If the characterization of "the closet" is a bit much for you, consider the following. Trump represents a political party and ideology which has been anti-civil and anti-human rights since the revolutionary times of the 1960s. It is a party of  comprised 92% white Americans. An even more glaring example of a party of social intolerance (if the word makes you feel better vs. bigots or racists) you should consider the number of African-American delegates at the recent Republican National Convention: 18 of the 2472 delegate seats. A fact that cannot be written off as circumstance or indifference from black republicans. The ascension of Trump to the top of the GOP is as natural as GOP no votes to any Obama initiative.

When GOP politics enable.

Donald Trump has a long history of discrimination against African-Americans. If we apply deep scrutiny to his actions and comments, it isn't difficult to find a deep core of racism. No, he will probably not support past acts of lynchings, killing to acquire black lands, nor would he stand to publicly declare white supremacy. Yet, his inner core of supremacy has been evident for many years and has been readily applied to people of color. New York Times OP-ED writer, Nicholas Kristof, recently published an opinion piece based on personal research focused on Trump's background as a developing billionaire. 

Is Donald Trump a Racist?

The answer is, yes Donald Trump is a racist who readily manifest his inner core. An inner core that has led to a much more robust support from white supremacists, neo-nazis, and the more common bigot.  

When GOP politics enable.

You are aware of David Duke's support for Trump.  If you are not aware of Duke and his resurgent white supremacist dogma head over to YouTube and type in the name "David Duke."

Duke aside, let's visit with the current national director of the KKK via MIC dot com.  
"Trump is espousing the ideals we've been promoting for years," said Thomas Robb, who took over for David Duke as national director of the Knights of the Ku Klux Klan in the 1980s. "They're talking about [these ideals] at the Republican National Convention. It makes our position credible."

The Ku Klux Klan's newspaper, the Crusader ( "The Political Voice of White Christian America!", published quarterly)

According to the national director of the Ku Klux Klan (KKK) reports requests for his newsletter has skyrocketed. 
When GOP politics enable.
Robb, who took over for David Duke as national director of the Knights of the Ku Klux Klan in the 1980s. "They're talking about [these ideals] at the Republican National Convention. It makes our position credible."
Other white supremacists echoed Duke's sentiments.

I haven't been called a "kike" since leaving Soviet Union in 1989. Thanks to Trump-loving Neo-Nazis for the reminder

According to Robb, Trump's "fixes" for problems were preaching to a long-quiet choir. In June, Trump called for outlawing immigrants from places with histories of terrorism. In December, he recommended banning Muslims from entering the U.S. And in order to keep people from immigrating into the country, the first point of his proposed immigration reform calls for a wall along the Mexican border — a wall he believes Mexico should pay for.
"We called for the border wall 30 years ago," Robb said. "We never expected someone so outspoken on issues of immigration."
When GOP politics enable.

And, this is where it all leads.  Reince Priebus was finally forced to refute growing David Duke clinging to his party leader (Donald Trump).

Keya Morgan, Filmmaker, states he has studied Hitler for two decades and the likeness to Trump is real and, in my words stupifying. 

 Trump's influence on a large swath of the nation far exceeds love from white supremacists.

For child being aged woman and secondarily women in general. 
Just to remind people Trumpo said this about abortion and women . In case you missed it #SCOTUS— vlh (@coton_luver) July 25, 2016
How about the person who feels he has a right to force actions from another and when the person does not comply, he moves to Jim Crow racists oratory and acts?

Is it possible for you to overlook the comfort displayed by one of the GOP's most noted racist?  If you wonder about my use of the word "comfort", watch the total confidence and lack of shame from an elected member of the US Congress. In this age of open racism from the Right, labelling Trumpism as an aberration is a false sense of reality.

The GOP via conservative Ameican will go down in modern US history in a manner comparable to a developing Third Reich in the mid 1920s.

Did you really believe I would leave this piece without more regarding Trump as the consummate flim-flam man?

Trump's KKK Voting Bloc


On March 2nd, a concerned Jewish citizen who's life includes young years in Austria during the days of Adolf Hitler, sent a letter to the Boston Globe.

The letter writer wrote to lament the growing reality of white supremacists who are associating their disgust and vile lifestyles with Donald Trump.  

The Boston Globe
"I AM an Austrian refugee from the time of Hitler who has been a US citizen for more than 70 years. I have found some alarming rhetoric coming from Donald Trump that is apparently finding approval from large numbers of my fellow Americans. With Trump’s rather ambiguous response concerning his disavowal of the support of former Klansman David Duke, I have reached my breaking point (“Trump wavers on disavowing ex-KKK member,” Page A2, Feb. 29). 
We all know the opinions and actions the Ku Klux Klan stands for. Among the fellow Americans the KKK has sought out for its venom are American Jews. Trump’s failure to immediately repudiate Duke chilled my blood."
The Globe piece includes verbiage of a postmarked threat against the letter writer and clear demonstration of origins in white supremacy. If you navigate to the piece, you will read about a key voting bloc for Donald Trump: white supremacists.

Yesterday, we published a piece related to a Public Broadcasting System (PBS) report on a family of Donald Trump supporters. On closer scrutiny than scrutiny from PBS. The family appears to have deep commitments to Nazism.

MSNBC Chris Hayes
Trump's Tar Heel White Supremacists

Today we ran across yet another media blitz. David Duke, former Grand Dragon of the US Ku Klux Klan, is garnering significant media attention via Donald Trump's ascension in US Politics. Threats to the elderly concerned citizens isn't a surprise from racists who support Donald Trump. An actual surprise is the extent to which many Americans (predominately white Americans) are also assimilating to the Trump carnival.

Media Matters

Trump's campaign has received support from numerous white nationalist groups and leaders who have used his campaign to fundraise and spread their message.

US conservativism has finally birthed its infancy of horrors!

Conservative Nut Job Kills

Russell Houser nut job, former business owner, Nazi sympathizer, white supremacist, hated liberals, and apparently loved to have 'his way.' Rumor has it he ran for office as a Republican sometime during his latter years of life.

Theater gunman has history of mental illness, politically radical views

The man identified as killing two people and wounding nine more in last night's shooting is John Russell Houser, 59, of Alabama.
Houser should not have been able to legally own a gun, because of his history with mental illness, Sheriff Heath Taylor said during a 2 p.m. press conference.
But he legally purchased the semi-automatic handgun he used in Thursday's shooting at a pawn shop in Phenix City, Ala., Gov. Bobby Jindal said during a 5 p.m. conference today. Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms confirmed the purchase was legal.  
He spent time in a mental health facility in 2008 and 2009, Russell County, Ala., Taylor said. 
Court documents obtained by WTVM in Columbus, Ga., Houser's family had him involuntarily committed to a mental health facility in April 2008. Houser's wife removed guns from their home and said he should not have any "unless he obtained it illegally." Houser applied for a conceal-carry permit in 2006, but it was denied because of the arson charge and a 2005 domestic violence complaint and an arson arrest from decades ago, Taylor said.  
The Southern Poverty Law Center, which tracks hate groups, said it has had Houser's name in its files since 2005, when he registered at former Ku Klux Klan leader David Duke's European-American Unity and Rights Organization conference, according to the Associated Press.

additional excerpt...

In addition, a John Russell Houser from Phenix City, Alabama, is listed as a member of a group called the Tea Party Nation.   
Houser was also a guest on "Rise and Shine" on WLTZ in Columbus, Ga., the station confirmed today. His LinkedIn profile says, "Guest host one day per week for more than 60 episodes. Invited political controversy on every one of them, and loved every minute of it."
In the 1990s, Houser frequently appeared on a local television call-in show, advocating violence against people involved in abortions, Calvin Floyd, who hosted the morning show on WLTZ-TV in Columbus, Georgia, told the AP.
Houser also espoused other radical views, including his opposition to women in the workplace. Floyd described Houser as an "angry man" who made "wild accusations" about all sorts of topics, and said he put him on to counter a Democratic voice because "he could make the phones ring."

It is chronic humorous to witness the many conservatives on social media attempting to realize this murderer away from their ideology.  American should face up to the monster it has created on the poli/social Right.  And, to think, this guy may have voted for some of the same political candidates as you.

Of course, all Republicans are not racist, but rest assured what you are about to read is not endemic in the Democrat Party ranks. 

If You Only News


Those who think the Confederate flag isn’t a symbol of racism and hate need to think again. And all they’ll need to change their minds are the crude, vile letters recently received by South Carolina state legislators.

The rebel flag has waved from the State House since 1961, when its placement seemed to coincide with a wave in the civil rights movement. Thirty years later, it was moved from the top of the capitol dome to a stationary pole in front of the building, and has remained there since then despite periodic bills from time to time calling for its complete removal.

The tragic Charleston massacre brought the issue to new light, though, after photos were found of admitted murderer Dylann Roof posing with the Confederate flag. And if Roof’s blatant racism wasn’t bad enough, it certainly got extra weight from a few die-hard neo-Confederates.

On July 6, after the state senate approved the bill to remove the Confederate flag earlier that same day, an email to the House Democrats from one claiming to be an Inman, South Carolina resident read:
(A)ll those that voted to take down the flag, well you gave in to the n*ggers … we will not forget none of you a**hole, we don’t need trash like you in SC(.)
Image from Rep. J. Todd Rutherford
Image from Rep. J. Todd Rutherford
On the next day of July 7, House Minority Leader J. Todd Rutherford received a personal letter, addressed to “stinking ugly n*gger(.)” Listing a Nevada return address, but mailed from a Columbia, South Carolina zip code, the handwritten letter reads:
I hate you and every other filthy n*gger in America. Lets hope ebola does what sickle cell anemia failed to do: exterminate every filthy n*gger baboon in America.

God bless David Duke, KKK, Buchanan and Roof

And while state house debated the issue on July 8, Rutherford received another letter, this one from one using a Walterboro, South Carolina address:
You are a piece of sh*t race baiting n*gger!!! Blue gummed mother f**ker! Go f**k yourself!
Image from Rep. J. Todd Rutherford

Such open racism was displayed on Twitter, too. After Rutherford told of the threats to a state senator who is a Confederate flag proponent, a Twitter account in the name “GodAndTheCSA” responded:
Shut up, n*gger

The vulgar insults and threats didn’t take effect, though. Neither did a group of anonymous Neo-Confederates, who attacked legislators by phone and radio ads. Neither did the 16 hours of delay pulled by a score of Republican legislators who attempted to filibuster by offering over 60 amendments to the bill.
Following an emotional debate beginning at 9 a.m. on July 8, at 1 a.m. on July 9 South Carolina’s state house voted 94-20 to remove the Confederate flag, 11 more votes than needed.

Following Gov. Nikki Haley’s promised signing of the bill, the flag will be officially removed from state government property.

White Supremacist And North Dakota Revisited. Is This DeJa Vu?

Paul Craig Cobb to the New York Times...... (He hoped his plans would) ....."excite" white people and "give them confidence because we're being deracinated in our own country."
"We've been very, very tolerant about these major sociological changes," 
Merriam-Websters Dictionary
To remove or separate from a native environment or culture;especially :  to remove the racial or ethnic characteristics or influences from— de·rac·i·na·tion  noun
Leave it to a racist to teach a word I have never seen nor heard in my life. As I recall the racist rants of every Southern racist during the Civil-Rights movement, I never heard the word. As I recall listening to the likes of David Duke, Jesse Helms and Strum Thurmond, I never heard nor saw the word as part of oral nor written communication.  Live and learn, I suppose.

We published a piece this week about a Neo Nazi Group purchasing property and plots on a very small North Dakota town: Leith, ND. The little town has a population of 15 residents, down from a high of 83 residents in 1990. Apparently one couple is an interracial couple. IN 2011, the number dropped by one from16 to the current 15 residents.  

  • North Dakota Demographics

    Leith Demographics Summary
    population icon
    With 15 people, Leith is the 282nd most populated city in the state of North Dakota out of 400 cities. But watch out, Leith, because Kief with 14 people and Denhoff with 14 people are right behind you. 
    income icon
    In 2010, the median household income of Leith residents was $47,813. Leith households made slightly more than Bismarck households ($47,560) and Hurdsfield households ($47,500). However, 30.0% of Leith residents live in poverty. 
    age icon
    The median age for Leith residents is 55.0 years young.  
    race icon
    The largest Leith racial/ethnic groups are White (93.8%) followed by Black (6.3%) and Hispanic (0.0%). 
    Leith, ND. is as small as it gets and is as isolated as it gets. The perfect haven for social deviates who wish to exist in secret until they are strong enough to open themselves up for observation. Observation means scrutiny, the one thing the New Nazis do not want is scrutiny. Why do you think members of the Ku Klux Klan wore sheets and head covers? The North Dakota Nazis do not hide their identities; that would work against the grain of their psyche. They do not wish to hide behind cloaks, they wish to remain isolated and out of the reach of people who find their cause deplorable. As stated in the video embed posted in the link above (published a piece), they wish to take over a small town and move their hatred to larger communities from a stable platform.

    The United States has experienced this stuff before. First, and without delineation, I think back to Manifest Destiny and the genocide of hundreds of thousands Native Original North Americans from direct killing through possibly 3 million deaths from non-native diseases. 

    Long after Manifest Destiny, the nation experienced another much more time focused example of White Supremacist attempting to take over a small town occurred in the 1950s.  

    In 1958, the Ku Klux Klan KKK planned a rally in Maxton, NC to harass Lumbee tribal members and other non-whites. On the night of their rally over 500 Lumbee men showed up to the KKK rally with guns and sticks. The Lumbees went on the attack. The KKK members were routed and ran out of town in what is now called the Battle of Hayes Pond.

    (NOTE: It seems back in the day, the newspaper writer would not publish the fact black citizens joined the Lumbee tribesmen "Other non-whites". Oh, my the "Invisible Negro," really has a long life.)

    While we have published on 1950s resistance to a Klan takeover, we will defer to a more official record of the event with important background information: University of North Carolina Dot Edu

    Let's move back to the Neo Nazis and North Dakota. 

    The Neo Nazis are meeting resistance.  The level of resistance to date appears commensurate with the level of Neo Nazi supremacist activities. We suspect the anti-purchase protesters will meet stiffer resistance as time passes.  The current supremacists may have learned from the "Battle of Hayes Pond", and decided to try a much less populated turf. 

    We located a Facebook page that seems to have cataloged a few days of resistance prior to the Semester 22, rally. A visit to the page will also yield activism regarding mining.
