  1. Chicago Places Giant Gold Sculpture Outside Trump Tower – And It’s Breaking The Internet

    The Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events (DCASE) has just placed a six-foot-tall sculpture outside Trump International Hotel and Tower in Chicago that says “REAL FAKE” in metallic gold, uppercase letters.

    Trump frequently likes to use the term ‘fake’ himself when lashing out against critics and media pundits who don’t agree with him. Looks like he was just outplayed. Our bet is, he’s not going to like this one bit.

    The sculpture was created by Chicago-based artist Scott Reeder and he is loaning it to the city to put there as part of their Year of Public Art program. More

  2. …and Again…

    but yet the only way we’ve ever gotten anything good from 3rd Way Dems is like this…

    your Sausage theory is based in romantic fan fiction… they are not leading, or crafting, or contriving… they have been deceiving and obstructing and distracting for decades… and now they are being dragged, kicking and clawing and shrieking, away from the Lobbyists feeding trough to give us what we demand… finally.

    …now tell me another bedtime story about “Purity Left”… the one with the Russians in it is my favorite…

  3. Quite a read! The Progressives were given a gift of Trump, now how to use it to rebuild, starting at State and Local levels, as the Tea Party did, to strengthen the party again. State and Local governments transferred to the Republicans because of the Tea Party and the election of a Black President. Now we need to take back these States, back into Democratic majorities and there is a good grass root movement started. Now we have to use it wisely.

    Trump does have problems with the Russia investigation but we are not just fighting to get Trump out, we are fighting the GOP and that can’t be forgotten because of the Russia problem. It’s time to fight smart!

  5. British Purity…

    The Tories are clueless and panicking… Corbyn has them chasing their tail…

    This success is what the Left in the US would resemble if some had more courage of their convictions and would step outside of their comfort zone to openly support Sanders and his policies… instead of doing moral and ethical backflips to make excuses for the neolibs.

  7. Corbyn’s Labour Has Lost Touch With “Facts and Reality…”

    No, Mr President, they have not “disintegrated” and they have not lost touch with reality… they are changing reality…

    Corbyn isn’t even PM yet and already he is getting Tory policies rolled back… without EU mandates to use as an excuse, the Conservatives and their neoliberal allies have zero cover…

    Dollars-to-Donuts the Tories will be lifting their austerity driven pay caps on cops and fire fighters and nurses before the month is out too… by Fall, they will be in full retreat…

    …meanwhile on the other side of the Chunnel… in a reincarnation of Caligula Ceasar, Macron has declared himself a “Jupiterian” leader and is taking France in the opposite direction…

    Wonder how long before he starts appointing his horses as cabinet ministers…

    Melenchon must be laughing his ass off…

    Niiiice call on those two Obama… an absolutely sterling grasp of the politics and assessment of European politicians… friggin moron…

    Obama is a real leader

    He’s working for the Banks, toni… not interested in anything he has to say… I do not trust him.

    and last time I checked it was the Dems, the Neocons and the MSM that were flag-waving, shouting all the jingoistic crap and drumming us to war… for over a year now…

    Obama can take his fear mongering and cram it… he can show me some proof or stfu, just like anybody else…

    Your immigrant ancestors came here legally? Are you sure?

    …“Before World War I, we had virtually open borders,” said Ngai, a professor of Asian American studies at Columbia University and author of the 2004 book Impossible Subjects: Illegal Aliens and the Making of Modern America. “You didn’t need a passport. You didn’t need a visa. There was no such thing as a green card. If you showed up at Ellis Island, walked without a limp, had money in your pocket, and passed a very simple [IQ] test in your own language, you were admitted.”

    A rapidly expanding America needed labor. One million immigrants were let in annually. Just 1 percent were turned away, typically because they failed the medical or mental test…

    …Congress passed the National Origins Act of 1924, which for the first time put a limit on how many people could come into the country. It established visa requirements and a quota of 150,000 admissions a year. It continued the nation’s blanket ban on Asians, and drastically limited certain other nationalities.

    “When people say their ancestors came legally, if they came before 1924, everybody was legal,” said Ngai. “It wasn’t a choice they had to make. After 1924, if you couldn’t get a visa because your country’s quota was filled, many came without documents. They sneaked in.”…

    hahaha… exactly…

    Finally starting to get a better vibe from moderate dems on moving Left on economics… I think the Tory collapse in Britain is loosening up their fears (or maybe scaring the hell out of them)… neoliberals are starting to get openly shouted down… dissent against the status quo is picking up in the Dem center center/left… The Clintons/ites are starting to get marginalized… the naysayers are crawling away and the Leadership is beginning to move on policy stance… at least publicly… Power is shifting Left.

    Early optimism? maybe, but it’s been a looong hard frustrating fight, toni… and it’s only about half way done… very tired.

    Hobby Lobby to return artifacts allegedly smuggled from Iraq

    …DOJ said the company had been “warned” by one expert that buying such a collection contained a risk that items may have been taken illegally from Iraqi archaeological sites.

    “The acquisition of the artifacts was fraught with red flags,” the DOJ wrote. “For example, Hobby Lobby received conflicting information where the Artifacts had been stored prior to the inspection in the UAE.

    “Further, when the Artifacts were presented for inspection to Hobby Lobby’s president and consultant in July 2010, they were displayed informally.”…

    Perhaps all of that Hobby Lobby hot glue has made for sticky fingers?
