    Trump is a freak of political nature. He’s a political Weeble Wobble that never falls down. He says whatever he wants, whenever he wants, wherever he wants. He could stand in the middle of Fifth Avenue and shoot a porn flick.

    What I like is how he exposes the hypocrisy of the Religious Right nearly daily, as they work diligently to defend every debased action he commits. It shows their true nature is Machiavellian and not Christian.

    From the Magazine
    CAN OBAMA RESCUE THE DEMOCRATS?
    While Barack Obama revels in the perks of post-presidency, the Democratic base longingly wonders if he’ll ever again direct his gaze their way

    ... This ache of absence comes with grumbles of resentment from some in the choir. So, goody for them, Barack and Michelle get to sky off into the azure and enjoy vacation after vacation, idyll after idyll, while the rest of us schmoes plod along on this endless cattle drive.

    He is not the president anymore. He did 8 years for the cause, and gained a head of grey hair showing the stress it put on his body. He does not owe the party anymore of his physical and mental well-being worrying over how to defeat an enemy who defeats himself ever day. Let the man and his wife enjoy their time away from all of the racism, backbiting, and sycophancy.

    McCaskill's Beverly Hills fundraiser with Obama sparks fiery attacks
    By Chuck Raasch and Jack Suntrup St. Louis Post-Dispatch


    ... The news of Obama’s appearance, the first fundraiser he will do for an individual candidate this election season, set off a harsh exchange in Missouri over who is the authentic populist in the Show-Me state’s prospective 2018 Senate campaign, one of the most-watched in the country. McCaskill called Attorney General Josh Hawley, favored to be her Republican opponent in November, a “fake populist ... with an Ivy League education.”

    ROLE OF YOUTH IN THE COMING TRANSFORMATION
    By Kevin Zeese and Margaret Flowers, Popular Resistance


    ... For this new generation of activists to reach their potential, they must understand we live in a mirage democracy and cannot elect our way out of these crises. Our tasks are much larger; violence is deeply embedded in US culture, dating to the founding of the nation when gun laws were designed for white colonizers to take land from Indigenous peoples and control black slaves.

    Role Of Youth In The Coming Transformation

    The eruption of youth protests over gun violence in schools and other issues is another indicator that the 2020s could be a decade of transformation where people demand economic, racial and environmental justice as well as peace. Students who are...

    I love this.

    White women have began to take a different look at Black women since our inaction in support of the METOO Movement.
    Recognizing they need Black women to be successful.
