Somebody tried to do Epstein in last night it seems. I wonder who could have arranged for that to happen. Jeffrey knows too much and has nothing to lose except perhaps his life.

A federal judge on Wednesday temporarily blocked President Donald Trump's plan to deny most asylum claims at the U.S.-Mexico border, dealing a major blow to the administration's latest attempt to deter migration to the U.S.

The nationwide injunction by the Northern District of California judge, who had been appointed by President Barack Obama, came just hours after a Trump-appointed judgein Washington, D.C., said the policy would be allowed, at least temporarily.

The dueling rulings all but guarantee the question over restricting asylum claims would be appealed and possibly wind up before the Supreme Court.

"Today’s ruling is an important victory for incredibly vulnerable individuals and families from besieged Central American countries seeking refuge in our country," said Melissa Crow, a senior supervising attorney with the Southern Poverty Law Center. "We will continue to fight this draconian policy as well as the myriad of others through which the Trump administration continues to wage war on asylum-seekers and our nation’s asylum system."...

278 pages of fat old American deadbeats getting triggered and raging against the Orange Man and still he stands.  Here are a few facts about your heros Ilhan Omar and AOC, the new face of the Democratic party:

 

Ilhan Omar Has Nine Percent Approval Rating Among Swing-State Voters

Quote

An internal poll reportedly “making the rounds of some of the most influential Democrats in America” shows that Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN-05) has a nine percent approval rating among swing-state voters.

The poll was obtained exclusively by Axios, which reports that the poll was conducted in May by Democratic leadership to assess the approval ratings of progressive Democrats among likely voters in swing states.

The poll found that 22 percent of respondents had a favorable view of Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY-14), while just nine percent had a favorable view of Omar.

“If all voters hear about is AOC, it could put the majority at risk,” a top Democrat involved in the 2020 congressional races told Axios. “She’s getting all the news and defining everyone else’s races.”

According to Axios, the group that conducted the poll shared it with the outlet on the condition of anonymity because it has to work with all members of the Democratic Party.

The poll surveyed 1,003 likely general-election voters who are white and have two years or less of college education.

The survey also found that only 18 percent of swing-state voters had a positive view of socialism, compared to 56 percent who viewed capitalism favorably.

“Socialism is toxic to these voters,” a top Democrat told Axios.

Trump has targeted Ocasio-Cortez, Omar, and other progressive Democrats in recent days, and predicted that support for them would hurt the Democratic Party in 2020.

“The Dems were trying to distance themselves from the four ‘progressives,’ but now they are forced to embrace them. That means they are endorsing socialism, hate of Israel and the USA! Not good for the Democrats,” he wrote on Twitter.

He made similar comments during a Monday press conference.

“If weak politicians want to say—and the Democrats in this case—if they want to gear their wagons around these four people, I think they’re going to have a very tough election, because I don’t think the people of the United States will stand for it,” Trump said.

 

I disagree with Trump btw.  Please don't send Ilhan Omar back.  She and her buddy AOC are the greatest gift the Republican party could think of.  I think the GOP should pay them...

Omar isn't running for president, menstrual cramp (because you come back every four weeks, unwanted and uninvited). She was elected by her House district and remains popular there. You and your bigot friends in the swing states can go suck eggs or whatever it is you like to suck on. Unlike you, I ain't gonna judge.

 

AOC graduated cum laude with a double major in international relations and economics, whereas I can only assume that you got your degree at Hamburger U, because you're too dumb to realize that the "Tennessee Star" you cited is the literal definition of fake news. Snopes says you and your poll information are bullshit, too.

 

Go back and shine your boy Bolsonaro's balls some more.

LOL forgot how to read again?  The poll came from Axios:

 

Exclusive poll: AOC defining Dems in swing states

 

Quote

Top Democrats are circulating a poll showing that one of the House's most progressive members — Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez — has become a definitional face for the party with a crucial group of swing voters.

 

Why it matters: These Democrats are sounding the alarm that swing voters know and dislike socialism, warning it could cost them the House and the presidency. The poll is making the rounds of some of the most influential Democrats in America. 

 

  • "If all voters hear about is AOC, it could put the [House] majority at risk," said a top Democrat who is involved in 2020 congressional races. "he's getting all the news and defining everyone else’s races."

     

The poll — taken in May, before Speaker Pelosi's latest run-in with AOC and the three other liberal House freshmen known as "The Squad" — included 1,003 likely general-election voters who are white and have two years or less of college education.

 

  • These are the "white, non-college voters" who embraced Donald Trump in 2016 but are needed by Democrats in swing House districts.

     

The group that took the poll shared the results with Axios on the condition that it not be named, because the group has to work with all parts of the party.

 

The findings:

 

  • Ocasio-Cortez was recognized by 74% of voters in the poll; 22% had a favorable view.

     

Rep. Ilhan Omar of Minnesota — another member of The Squad — was recognized by 53% of the voters; 9% (not a typo) had a favorable view. 

 

Socialism was viewed favorably by 18% of the voters and unfavorably by 69%.

 

  • Capitalism was 56% favorable; 32% unfavorable.

     

"Socialism is toxic to these voters," said the top Democrat.

 

Between the lines: Dems are performing better with these voters than in 2016 (although still not as well as in 2018). So party leaders will continue to try to define themselves around more mainstream members.

 

The other side: Three members of The Squad — Omar, Rep. Rashida Tlaib of Michigan and Rep. Ayanna Pressley of Massachusetts — defended their approach while appearing in Philadelphia yesterday on a panel at the annual Netroots Nation conference, AP's Juana Summers reports:

 

  • "We never need to ask for permission or wait for an invitation to lead," Omar said, adding later that there's a "constant struggle oftentimes with people who have power about sharing that power."

Trump gave a "speech" to a right-wing organization in DC and got thoroughly punked - whether through intent or carelessness on the part of the organizers. A doctored POTUS seal was projected on the screen behind him, featuring a Russian two-headed eagle grasping a wad of cash and set of golf clubs in its claws, hammers and sickles instead of stars on its shield, and a banner reading "45 es un titere" (45 is a puppet).

Even now, GOP stands in the way of new election-security safeguards

 

Quote

The alarm bells certainly appear to be going off.

Some lawmakers have obviously taken note. Almost exactly a month ago, the Democratic-led House approved the “Securing America’s Federal Elections Act” (or SAFE Act), which would, among other things, require voting systems to use backup paper ballots, mandate tech safeguards, and provide resources to states to improve their election-security measures. It passed easily, though 99% of House Republicans voted against it.

 

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) has rejected calls to even allow the upper chamber to vote on the legislation.

It was against this backdrop that Sen. Mark Warner (D-Va.), the vice chair of the Senate Intelligence Committee, went to the Senate floor yesterday, seeking unanimous support for a related bill, called the “Foreign Influence Reporting in Elections Act” (or FIRE Act), which would require campaigns to report attempts at foreign elections interference to the FBI and the FEC.

 

Republicans have blocked this proposal before, and yesterday, they did it again.

The week before Trump made his remarks about the "Squad", Nancy Pelosi was trying to sideline them.   Now the corporatist wing of the Democratic party has been forced to embrace the "Squad" even though Americans seem to be weary of identity politics.   In other words, Trump just played Nancy (again).

Blackwell should stop (literally) crying about some mean things that were said and look at the leadership that brought Baltimore to its current status.  

 

Baltimore has the highest homicide rate for any metropolis in the US.

The mayor resigned over a corruption scandal just a few months ago.

Cummings wife, who is 20 years younger than he is and is chair of the Maryland Dem party is the subject of an IRS complaint over corporate bri... donations to her charity.
