Angry right-wingers have white hot emotional meltdown over Trump’s ‘flip-flop’ on mass deportations

Angry right-wingers have white hot emotional meltdown over Trump’s ‘flip-flop’ on mass deportations
David Ferguson DAVID FERGUSON 21 AUG 2016 AT 11:01 ET

What is Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump’s current position on the mass deportations of undocumented immigrants he promised his followers all year? No one is sure.

Many of Trump’s right-wing, anti-immigration supporters are howling with outrage over the possibility of any deviation from the plan to forcefully deport all undocumented immigrants. The promise has been a main selling point of the Trump campaign since its launch in June of 2015, when Trump said that Latino immigrants coming to the U.S. are “rapists,” criminals and “drug dealers.”

David Duke Show Celebrates Trump’s Breitbart Hire: We’ve ‘Taken Over the Republican Party!’

David Duke Show Celebrates Trump’s Breitbart Hire: We’ve ‘Taken Over the Republican Party!’
by Tommy Christopher | 2:02 am, August 21st, 2016 VIDEO 667

Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump rocked the political media world this week by hiring Breitbart.com honcho Stephen K. Bannon to be his campaign CEO, and while the move has mainstream pundits scratching their heads, its meaning appears to be crystal clear to David Duke and his followers.

The former Klan leader and current U.S. Senate candidate closed out the week celebrating the move with Stormfront-friendly radio co-host Don Advo, who got a chuckle from Duke by saying that the Bannon hire means “We’ve taken over,” an assessment that Duke mostly agreed with...

Poll: Hillary Clinton extends lead in Ohio

Poll: Hillary Clinton extends lead in Ohio
By ANTHONY SALVANTO CBS NEWS August 21, 2016, 10:30 AM

In Ohio, which is so critical to Donald Trump’s electoral fortunes, it is Hillary Clinton who has extended her lead and is now up six points, 46 percent to 40 percent; she was up four points in July. Clinton has made gains among women, and remains bolstered by a nearly-unified Democratic base. She wins 90 percent of Democrats, while Trump remains hampered by just enough reluctant Republicans: He’s at 79 percent of GOPers.

Republicans Set To Lose Senate Control

Republicans Set To Lose Senate Control
Democrats have a 78 percent chance of getting 50-plus seats in November, the HuffPost Senate model shows.
08/21/2016 08:07 am ET Natalie Jackson Senior Polling Editor, The Huffington Post


The biggest electoral question of the year is undoubtedly who becomes the next president. But just after that follows the issue of whether the Senate majority will flip again. Republicans took the chamber with a 54-46 seat majority in the 2014 midterm elections. Keeping that lead in 2016, however, will prove a more difficult task.

According to The Huffington Post’s Senate model, which relies on the polls aggregated in HuffPost Pollster charts, there’s a 55 percent chance that the Senate will swing completely over ― and a 23 percent chance that it’s tied at 50 seats for each party. That means there’s a 78 percent chance that the Democratic Party could get 50 or more seats.

‘Racialists’ are cheered by Trump’s latest strategy

‘Racialists’ are cheered by Trump’s latest strategy
David Weigel August 20 at 5:49 PM

From his Fairfax County home, Taylor has edited the white nationalist magazine American Renaissance and organized racialist conferences under the “AmRen” banner. He said that Trump should “concentrate on his natural constituency, which is white people,” suggesting that winning 65 percent of the white vote would overwhelm any Democratic gains with minorities.


At Trump’s rally in Charlotte, one of the first of the Bannon era, the message was sinking in. Frances Johnson, 68, said that the polls were not reflecting Trump’s real level of support and that she sometimes emailed the campaign with ideas on how to change that. The pitch to black voters, she said, was smart.

“I really don’t think that African Americans want to be stuck where they are,” Johnson said. “They’re basically glorified slaves — they get free this, free that, free this, free that, and they can’t get a good job and depend on the government. What else do you call it?”

Texas has highest maternal mortality rate in developed world, study finds
As the Republican-led state legislature has slashed funding to reproductive healthcare clinics, the maternal mortality rate doubled over just a two-year period

The rate of Texas women who died from complications related to pregnancy doubled from 2010 to 2014, a new study has found, for an estimated maternal mortality rate that is unmatched in any other state and the rest of the developed world.

New jobs report is an utter disaster for Kansas and Brownback

New jobs report is an utter disaster for Kansas and Brownback
YAEL T. ABOUHALKAH AUGUST 19, 2016 9:28 AM

The new July jobs report released Friday is an utter disaster for Kansans and embattled Gov. Sam Brownback.

Here are the lowlights.

▪ The state lost 5,600 jobs from June to July.

▪ The unemployment rate jumped to 4.1 percent from 3.8 percent in June.

▪ Over the last year, Kansas has actually shed 4,500 jobs.

▪ The Sunflower State’s “growth” rate over that 12 months is a minus 0.3 percent — 5th worst in the nation. Only Wyoming, North Dakota, Louisiana and Oklahoma were behind Kansas.

▪ Kansas had employment of 1,395,700 in July 2016 — or a stunning 600 fewer jobs than when Brownback’s second term started way back in January 2015.
