Heller finally admits he voted for Trump, reminding Nevada voters how weak and dishonest he is  

Sen. Dean Heller got a primary challenger last week, and this week he's showing how craven and desperate he is. Perennial candidate Danny Tarkanian will challenge Heller in the Nevada Republican primary, prompting Heller to try to shore up his right flank: In a short statement released to The Nevada Independent, Heller — who is up for reelection in 2018 and is being challenged in a primary by businessman Danny Tarkanian — confirmed that he indeed voted for the Republica...

This is why Republicans stand with Trump: Appeals court rules Arkansas can defund Planned Parenthood  

Want to know why so few Republicans are willing to call their president out by name as giving aid and succor to white nationalists? This is why—he'll appoint more federal judges to rule counter to federal law in cases like this. LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) — A federal appeals court panel has ruled that Arkansas can block Medicaid funding to Planned Parenthood over videos secretly recorded by an anti-abortion group. A 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals panel on Wednesday vacated preliminary inj...

Open thread for night owls. Katherine Cross: The Art of the Real—Disinformation vs. Democracy  

Katherine Cross calls herself a pizza-loving feminist sociologist, trans Latina, and amateur slug herder, working on her PhD at the CUNY Graduate Center. Her blog can be found at quinnae.com. At The Baffler, she writes—The Art of the Real. Disinformation vs. Democracy. An excerpt: THE CONCEPT OF "THE BIG LIE"—a brazen untruth pushed so relentlessly in mass media that it's eventually mistaken for truth—is hardly novel. As is the case with so many other wretched stratagems of it...

Perfect: Paul Ryan's first public town hall in nearly two years will be on eclipse day  

It's been nearly two years since House Speaker Paul Ryan held a public town hall meeting, so now that he's finally holding one, it's appropriate that it will be on the day of an even rarer event: a solar eclipse. The town hall in Racine is being organized by CNN and will be hosted by Jake Tapper. Ryan's office says CNN will be in charge of attendance for the event and is inviting attendees from Ryan's southeastern Wisconsin congressional district. Ryan is still going for a co...

The fact Trump's first pardon may be for an 'authoritarian racist' shouldn't be a shock to anyone  

Donald Trump's recently announced Arizona rally is fueling speculation he may go through with pardoning Crooked Joe Arpaio, recently found guilty of criminal contempt of court for disobeying a federal judge's order to stop racial profiling Latino and immigrant drivers in Maricopa County in order to turn them over to Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). But the fact that Trump may pardon Arpaio while he himself is in the midst of self-inflicted chaos following Charlottesville should ...

Colorado Republican feels the heat back home for his Obamacare repeal vote  

Sen. Cory Gardner (R-CO) probably felt he was pretty safe having town meetings this week, since he actually came out of the gates Saturday with a very strong statement on Charlottesville, tweeting "Mr. President - we must call evil by its name. These were white supremacists and this was domestic terrorism." He did get credit for that at his meetings, but that's about all, because what was on his constituents' minds was his vote to take away their health care. While Gardner's constituents ...

Silence is complicity; 'support' is collaboration  

As Donald Trump's defense of white supremacy and pro-Nazi marchers lays waste to the notion that the man has any defining principles at all, save his own self-promotion, his lawyer steps up to declare that just because he works for and "supports" Trump does not make him a racist too. He declared this in the usual manner, for those that support racist policies while insisting they themselves would never harbor such thoughts: with a photo montage of himself associating with black people. xAs th

Trump regime killed funds dedicated to fighting Nazis, denies there's an issue  

While Donald Trump was quick to praise the police in Charlottesville, he doesn't want to listen to the police when they talk about the real threats to the nation. A 2015 survey of nearly 400 law enforcement officials by the Triangle Center on Terrorism and Homeland Security at Duke University, found that antigovernment violent extremists, including white supremacist groups, were "the most severe threat of political violence that they face."

Not one person working in Trump's White House has shown the dignity and moral fiber to resign yet  

Among all the fallout from Donald Trump's moral equivalency rant Tuesday that revealed him to be a white supremacist sympathizer is the realization that as of 12 PM ET the following day, not one single person working in his White House had resigned. Never in my lifetime have I seen a more important historical moment than this—a time at which our country's moral certitude is being tested.

Court strikes down Texas GOP's congressional gerrymander, but Democratic victory is limited  

Late on Tuesday, as Donald Trump was busy defending white supremacists, a federal court in San Antonio struck down Texas' congressional map on the grounds that the Republican lawmakers who drew it had engaged in intentional racial discrimination in violation of both the Voting Rights Act and the 14th Amendment. The court ordered lawmakers to swiftly lay out their plans to redraw the map, which is shown at the top of this post (click here for a larger version). The new districts will take eff...

GOP on the brink: Embrace Nazis or reject Trump

CBO finding will put Republicans in a bind: What do they hate more, Obamacare or deficits?  

At the request of House Democrats, the Congressional Budget Office has released its analysis of the costs of Trump's Obamacare sabotage. Specifically, it analyzes what will probably happen if the Trump administration stops paying cost-sharing reduction payments to health insurers. Those are the repayments insurers get for subsidizing the deductibles, copayments, and other means of cost sharing to some of the people who purchase plans, as required by the law. Its conclusions: premiums will b...

Three CEOs sever Trump ties after Charlottesville, but where are the others?  

Two more of the CEOs involved in business advisory councils with the Trump administration have severed ties over Trump's refusal to immediately disavow the white supremacist Nazis responsible for the attack on Charlottesville. Kenneth Frazier, chairman and CEO of Merck, was the first to quit Trump, for which he was rewarded with a Twitter attack from Trump, who was willing to disavow the CEO but waited until much later in the day to finally condemn white supremacist violence in tepid terms.

Hey, Republicans. This is your guy, defending Nazis and white supremacists. You own this.  

As Donald Trump defended neo-Nazis and white supremacists rallying behind a symbol of slavery and treason and assailed the anti-racist counter-protesters, there could be no doubt how he felt. He was furious, raging in defense of his people. And his people were neo-Nazis and KKK members. This is another of those pivotal moments that congressional Republicans have failed time and again. Republicans have stood by Trump through vile comment after vile comment in hopes that he could help them deliver

What were those thoughts in the last twenty-four hours since the words "racism is evil" were finally dragged from Trump's mouth?

White supremacists are increasingly key to the Republican Party  

White supremacy is nothing new in the United States. In fact, it was a deeply held belief well before there was a United States and the founding principle of the traitorous disunion memorialized by the statue in Charlottesville. But the way that this nationalism is being folded into the Republican Party, and into the support base for Donald Trump is new. It's no coincidence that the alt-Reich is drawing from the same energy that drives Donald Trump: a sense of white victimhood. Where the me...

There are only two groups in America that believe Donald Trump to have done the right thing in his Trump Tower speech defending white supremacist marchers:  The so-called "alt-right" themselves, and their adamant far-right defenders. In many ways the press conference was a rallying cry for the pro-Trump media, giving credence to the movement's talking point that factions of the left (specifically antifa) are intolerant and to blame for political violence.
