    So this happened today, Trump promoting this person:

    Curt Schilling, a great pitcher and patriot, is considering a run for Congress in Arizona. Terrific! @foxandfriends

    So, who is that? Welllllllll...

    Reminder: Curt Schilling defrauded the state of Rhode Island out of $75M for his video game company, which he then crashed into the ground, sparking a years-long lawsuit that ultimately left the taxpayer on the hook. He's also quite transphobic and Islamophobic.


    If he is considering a run, beware WBE!

    So begins the next wave of Epstein Conspiracy theories.

    4chan user posted about Jeffrey Epstein's death before it was public

    Less than an hour before the first news reports surfaced that Jeffrey Epstein had been found unresponsive in his jail cell, a post about his death mysteriously appeared on a far-right message board.

    Authorities now want to know who was behind the post, which contained medically accurate details about the financier and accused sex trafficker.

    The New York City Fire Department, for its part, has determined that the information in the post did not come from its records, a department spokesperson told NBC News. Fire officials reviewed the post on 4chan, a forum popular with internet trolls and people in the so-called alt-right movement.
    BuzzFeed News was first to report on the post, which appeared on 4chan 38 minutes before the first tweet about Epstein's death from ABC News reporter Aaron Katersky at 8:54 a.m. ET. The flagship ABC News account tweeted an article about Epstein's death five minutes later.

    "[D]on't ask me how I know, but Epstein died an hour ago from hanging, cardiac arrest. Screencap this," the post reads. The text was accompanied by an image of Pepe the Frog, an internet meme that is popular among far-right internet trolls.

    Troll posts looking to capitalize on the initial post immediately began pushing elaborate conspiracy theories about body doubles, which were later refuted by the original poster.

    1920 to 1940 saw the largest spike in deportation/excluded entry of immigrants on grounds of becoming a public charge. Mainly due to the adding social programs such as welfare that immigrants also began to apply for because of hard economic times.
    So, the question becomes, does our society learn from it's past and live up to the high ideals it's claimed to possess all these years or let it's least empathetic members dictate policy and succumb to the lowest standards of empathy simply for conveniences sake?

    Actual American immigration policy never really aligned with that poem.
    Which doesn't mean it can't or never should.

    Schilling was famously described as, and I paraphrase: “A horse on the day he pitched, and a horse’s ass the other four days”. I’m sure WBE must have stories about the guy since he pitched for Arizona.

    He's the thematic heir to Jim Bunning. Great pitcher. Hall of Fame pitcher. Real dick of a human being.

    More insanity and BS going on with Trump.

    Pres. Trump jokes about windmills in speech on energy: "All of a sudden it stops, the wind and the televisions go off, and your wives and husbands say, 'Darling, I want to watch Donald Trump on television tonight, but the wind stopped blowing."
    Also, some more casual racism.

    Cuccinelli: That statue of liberty poem was about "people coming from Europe."

    Question of the day : How are we going to keep Wayne LaPierre Safe?

    In this piece by Dana Milibank reveals how the guy who is the head of the NRA (for now at least) wanted the NRA to buy him a $6 million dollar home in a gated community. You know, like those liberal Hollywood types.

    The home he wanted them to buy is in a gated golf course community in Dallas. He told associates that his current home in Virginia was too easy for potential attackers to find. Too bad for him that the NRA turned him down on that.

    Welp, the GOP’s racism is finally out there for the world to see. There’s no denying or hiding it now.

    My thoughts and prayers go out to him.
    If only the US was a safer place to live.

    You don't think Jeff Bezos isn't worried about someone like Warren or Sanders taking the White House?

    Wealthy Liberals aren't as paranoid or greedy about their cash as are Wealthy Conservatives.

    That's like saying "A Doberman is safer in a neighborhood with kids than a Pit Bull..."

    How about the kids get to live in a neighborhood that doesn't have a Doberman or a Pit Bull in it?
