A white supremacist rally is going on in #Pikeville, KY right now.

White nationalist claims Trump directed rally violence



http://www.politico.com/story/2017/04/donald-trump-rally-violence-237302

Trump supporter asks a federal court to hold the president liable for any damages stemming from a lawsuit filed by protesters who attended a Kentucky campaign stop.

By Kenneth P. Vogel

04/17/17 06:18 PM EDT


A white nationalist leader accused of assaulting a young African-American woman at a Donald Trump campaign rally filed a countersuit on Monday claiming the president directed him and other supporters to remove protesters.

Matthew Heimbach claims in his federal court filing that he “acted pursuant to the directives and requests of Donald J. Trump and Donald J. Trump for President” and that, if he’s found liable for damages, “any liability must be shifted to one or both of them.”

The legal fight stems from a March 2016 rally in Louisville, Kentucky,
at which protesters were allegedly roughed up and ejected by Trump supporters after the then-candidate barked from the stage “get ’em out of here!”

The protesters filed civil assault and battery claims against Heimbach and two other Trump supporters and accused Trump of inciting his supporters.

Heimbach, a leader of the white supremacist Traditionalist Youth Network and a vocal Trump supporter during the campaign, can be seen in video from the Louisville rally pushing and screaming at a young African-American woman as Trump bellows “get out!”

Art exhibits, poetry sessions and dance performances are popping up to mark the 100th day of the Trump administration
Trump-inspired works include jewelry, songs, visual art and limited-edition skateboards

(CNN)President Donald Trump's 100th day in office has become, perhaps unintentionally, an inspiration for artists nationwide.

Art exhibits, poetry sessions and dance performances are popping up to mark the first three months of the Trump administration, most casting themselves as acts of resistance.
"After the election, I had very strong feelings about what was happening, and for a while, I was very frustrated," said Matt Adams, curator of The First 100 Days: Artists Respond, a Houston-based exhibition opening Saturday.

When Adams decided to do an art show, he called on artists from "both sides of the aisle" but received no submissions in favor of the President.............

"John D. Sutter is a columnist for CNN Opinion who focuses on climate change and social justice. Follow him on Snapchat, Twitter and Facebook or subscribe to his email newsletter. "

Washington (CNN)A 16-year-old walked up to the microphone.
"The state of the planet is unraveling all around us because of our addiction to fossil fuels," Xiuhtezcatl Martinez said at the steps of the US Supreme Court this week. "For the last several decades, we have been neglecting the fact that this is the only planet that we have and that the main stakeholders in this issue (of climate change) are the younger generation. Not only are the youth going to be inheriting every problem that we see in the world today -- after our politicians have been long gone -- but our voices have been neglected from the conversation.

"Our politicians are no longer representing our voices."

So, what's a voiceless kid to do?

How about sue President Donald Trump and his administration -- and then march to the White House?

Martinez is one of 21 young people taking Trump and members of his administration to federal court over inaction on global warming. On Saturday, several of these "climate kid' plaintiffs -- the youngest is 9 -- will walk alongside the chanting and sign-pumping adults at the March for Climate, Jobs and Justice in Washington. That demonstration is a call for a clean energy revolution, and it's expected to draw thousands. Perhaps fittingly, local forecasts call for potentially record-setting temperatures above 90 degrees Fahrenheit. Demonstrators plan to converge on the White House.

Rep. John Lewis rallies with gun-owning mom against the NRA and Trump

By Oliver Willis | April 29, 2017




Lindsey Donovan, a mother and a gun owner from Georgia, is rallying with Rep. John Lewis against the NRA's "guns everywhere" agenda. She spoke to Shareblue as Donald Trump locked arms with the NRA at its annual convention.
Moms Demand Action





As the NRA holds its annual convention in Atlanta, Georgia Rep. John Lewis will be headlining a rally put together by gun safety advocates from Moms Demand Action and the Everytown Survivor Network.

The groups hope to “to stand and fight back against the NRA leadership’s dangerous ‘guns everywhere’ agenda that contributes to the more than 90 Americans who are shot and killed and the hundreds more who are injured every day.”

The NRA is currently advocating for “campus carry” in Georgia, which would make colleges and universities another free fire zone in American life. The organization is also opposed to enhanced background checks and has been pushing the Trump administration to help make silencers more accessible.

Shareblue spoke with Lindsey Donovan, who is an Army veteran, Muslim, gun owner, and the wife of an active-duty soldier who will be marching with Lewis.

Donovan said she became a part of the gun safety movement after Georgia passed its “guns everywhere” bill, which allowed residents to take guns into bars, night clubs, school classrooms, and some government buildings.

Shock poll: Clinton voters represent real America



http://shareblue.com/shock-poll-clinton-voters-represent-real-america/#.WQS1pbe2eEk.twitter
By Leah McElrath | April 29, 2017

The thoughts, feelings, and motivations of Trump voters have been, and continue to be, a frustratingly central focus of much of the corporate media and opinion polling. But one polling outlet finally offered up a similar examination of Americans who supported, in the pollster's own words, "the top vote getter."




HFA
.......

We already knew that Trump has rock-bottom, record low approval ratings from the nation as a whole. And the numbers get even worse in PPP’s results. 88 percent of Clinton voters disapprove of Trump’s performance as president, with only 6 percent approving, while 89 percent of those voters have an unfavorable opinion of Trump overall, with only 7 percent holding a favorable opinion.

Even more cutting, a mere 2 percent of Clinton voters say that Trump has “Made American Great Again,” while 93 percent say he has not — ubiquitous red hats notwithstanding. And 70 percent of them support impeaching Trump, with only 15 percent opposing the notion.

On domestic issues, Clinton voters unsurprisingly and overwhelmingly stand in opposition to Trump:
82 percent are against the Republicans’ plan to repeal the Affordable Care Act; 92 percent oppose building an American-taxpayer-funded wall on the Mexican border; and 90 percent want Trump to release his tax returns.

And on a global level, alongside strong unfavorable opinions of Russia in general and Russian President Vladimir Putin in particular, comes one particularly striking and unsettling data point:

Climate March expected to draw massive crowd to D.C. in sweltering heat

On what could be a record-hot day, tens of thousands of demonstrators are expected to assemble in Washington on Saturday. Their large-scale climate change protest will mark President Trump’s first 100 days in office, which have been punctuated by multiple rollbacks of environmental protections and Obama climate policies.

The People’s Climate March, which originated with a massive demonstration in New York in September 2014, picked a symbolically striking day for its 2017 event. Temperatures could exceed 90 degrees and possibly set a record for April 29 in the District, which would amplify the movement’s message.

Marchers are sure to be further galvanized by a move taken by the Environmental Protection Agency late Friday. The agency announced that it was beginning an overhaul of its website, which included taking down a long-standing site devoted to the science of climate change, which the agency said was “under review.” (The EPA did link to a snapshot of how the page looked on Jan. 19, before the Trump administration.)



The climate event differs from last week’s March for Science in its focus and also its participants — only 1 out of 8 planned contingents of Saturday’s protest will feature scientific researchers. The rest will include labor activists, indigenous people already facing severe effects from climate change, and children and young people who will live with the effects of climate change longest as the Earth continues to warm........................
