Fox cuts away from Trump babbling about farmers not being able to connect tractors to the internet

While President Donald Trump was speaking at an event in Council Bluffs, Iowa on Tuesday, his speech veered off the rails, culminating in him complaining about how farmers couldn’t hook their tractors up to the internet.

“We secured nearly $1.2 billion to expand rural broadband, which you need very badly. You need very badly,” said Trump. “They have not treated the Midwest well with broadband, with anything having to do with the word computer. I look at some of those tractors and they don’t even hook up. They’re all set. But you don’t have the capability in terms of your infrastructure—”

“All right, we’re going to talk with your panel about a lot of what the president’s been saying,” cut in an anchor, quickly turning off the audio feed from Trump’s speech.

Modern tractors typically do have internet connectivity, which helps farmers keep track of everything from weather conditions to the total size of their yield.

Dear Trump: The Media's not out to get you - America's out to get you.


John McCain polls higher than you.


...The Fake (Corrupt) News Media said they had a leak into polling done by my campaign which, by the way and despite the phony and never ending Witch Hunt, are the best numbers WE have ever had. They reported Fake numbers that they made up & don’t even exist. WE WILL WIN AGAIN!


Trump Administration to Hold Migrant Children at Base That Served as WWII Japanese Internment Camp



The Trump Administration has opted to use an Army base in Oklahoma to hold growing numbers of immigrant children in its custody after running out of room at government shelters.

Fort Sill, an 150-year-old installation once used as an internment camp for Japanese-Americans during World War II, has been selected to detain 1,400 children until they can be given to an adult relative, according to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.

The agency said Fort Sill will be used “as a temporary emergency influx shelter” to help ease the burden on the government as it prepares to house a record number of minors even though it already operates about 168 facilities and programs in 23 states.

Health and Human Services said in a statement that it has taken about 40,900 children into custody through April 30. That’s a 57% increase from last year, which is a rate on-pace to surpass the record figures in 2016, when 59,171 minors were taken into custody. The agency had assessed two other military bases before selecting Fort Sill.


Fort Sill, located southwest of Oklahoma City, was one of several internment camps where Japanese-Americans were held during World War II. Between 1942 and 1946, the U.S. government forcibly removed an estimated 120,000 men, women and children from their homes and incarcerated them across the country. Fort Sill was later used to hold German prisoners of war.

Some Perspective From An Older Progressive Voter on Democratic Presidential Primaries.

Posted by Merlin 1963 at Daily Kos


I’ve seen circular firing squads after many of Democratic losses in the past. But have we already lost and no one told me? If that is the case, there is no circular firing squad.

What we are having instead is a debate about the issues. And if your candidate has a voting record, he/she is going to have that examined. Yes, we are all going to get passionate. And verbal punches are going to thrown around by supporters. Hell, I’ve done it.

But I have never sat out an election because my favored candidate didn’t get the nomination. Here is my list of the candidates I have supported that have not gotten the nod:

Gary Hart in 1984.
Joe Biden in 1988.
No one in 1992 was my favorite, and I pulled the lever for Clinton in the primary because there was no one else by then.
Bill Bradley in 2000.
Howard Dean in 2004.
Hillary Clinton in 2008.
Bernie Sanders in 2016

Yeah, great political judgment on my part. But I voted for all the Democratic nominees. One thing to keep in mind with most of the races is that Democrats relentlessly bitched that “We really do not have many choices!”

We have a mind boggling number of choices in this election!

But now that we have choices, choices, and more choices, we are to be panicked into picking the most “electable” candidate? Could we please at least see the candidates in a debate first? If my candidate burns out, yes, I will be bummed. But I have been bummed plenty of times.

We have time to debate and choose a Democratic candidate.

Dear Trump Suporters: "We the people will never-ever forgive you"

I do not think I have seen a better summary than this from Kevin Karstens. BRAVO!
