Here's a brilliant idea on how to control wingnut rallies.

German police confiscate 4,200 liters of beer from Nazis

A court has instituted an alcohol ban at a neo-Nazi event taking place in Ostritz, a town in Saxony. A counter protest has also been barred from demonstrating directly in front of the venue.

(snip)
German police in the eastern German state of Saxony confiscated 4,200 liters of beer on Friday after a court prohibited a right-wing extremist event from serving alcohol. Organizers of the "Schild und Schwert Festival" ("Shield and Sword Festival".) had insisted that past events had taken place peacefully even with the consumption of alcohol. But the high administrative court (OVG) in Bautzen, east of Dresden, ruled that alcohol could increase the likelihood of violence.

The festival will take place in Ostritz, a town in Saxony on the German-Polish border, from Friday to Sunday. There is a large police presence expected at festival with heavy equipment such as armored vehicles and water cannons. Officers from the nearby city of Görlitz are being supported by federal police and riot squads from Saxony and other German states.

About 750 people have registered to participate in the event, which is expected to feature concerts with right-wing extremist music groups.

KY..........

I believe the Speaker is in a very complex political dance that...

would be risky and difficult to explain to the public and it's tricky because she - perhaps more than any other politician - is responsible for keeping the government running day-by-day. A sure sign our Congress has become far too complex and the executive branch massively corrupted.

I wish she could hold a frequent, scheduled official news conference to review what is being done in Congress in simple terms. Such a broadcast could in effect replace the White House news conferences which are a farce.

KY........

Regarding your No. 4....

Good list, Botany, but I suspect we flew the drone 100% as an intimidation, not for surveillance. We have precision satellites and high-altitude spy planes for that. It was noting but stupid, immature and expensive political game play.

The U.S. needs to be condemned and possibly sanctioned by the international community to stop this madness, in order to effectively rebuke Trump and his neocons. These actions and particularly hard military action affect people around the globe with economic and political turmoil.

I'm also aghast at the international community of Islam for not unifying and stopping this non-stop fever of conflict in the Middle East and parts of Asia. I am a dreamer.

KY........

K&R. And, in a slightly different time they thought....

Iraq and Afghanistan would celebrate our unsolicited military invasions with women and children dancing in the streets and...

both would next lay flowers on the pavement to welcome the limos of Wall Street barons arriving to capture control of their ore and petroleum resources.

What the hell is wrong with those natives, anyway?.... .....

Along that same line of thinking, defense officials expect Pompeo to call for...

Pence may also have seen documents we haven't and realizes it's time to jump ship before he goes down with it...

Our society currently has an attitude problem created by social media....

and it's a cancer on us all. Comes primarily from no longer looking our fellow humans square in the eye while communicating....

I've noticed for the last several years, the dialog and demeanor of people I deal with (family, friends, businesses) has slowly become more caustic and smart-ass, like a bunch of teenagers competing for dates. I hope people finally tire of social media and we reverse that trend. I've let several people know that behavior simply is not acceptable.

There's no purpose in being abrasive when commenting on our politicians and their statements - it only annoys and serves no end. We should simply state our objections in a rational way and leave it at that. Reading a string of posts on DU should not leave me a nervous wreck, but some have recently.

If we try to be more like old-fashioned ladies and gentlemen, the right-wing trolls will get bored and leave....

You immediately foul your argument with unfounded claims, such as...

"Taking the Impeachment path will lead Dems to landslide WH, House, Senate, and gubernatorial wins in 2020."

That claim has absolutely no foundation in fact and is highly speculative. There is no promise land in American politics and never will be so long as Republicans have potentially unlimited funding and clandestine support from around the globe at their disposal. Those unknown factors render long-term election predictions virtually useless.

Therefore, no landslide can credibly be predicted. We all wish it were as simple and straightforward as you have claimed.

Further, broadcasting such claims will tend to weaken Democratic Party efforts for GOTV and fundraising. If impeachment began and everyone then thought a landslide was forthcoming, many Democrats might just stay home or not bother to contribute.

I support opening an impeachment inquiry as soon as practical, but I also know there's procedures that must be followed to keep the process within the Constitution and our laws, and to ensure maximum impact with the best political timing.

We must also respect the fact that Congress cannot spend 100% of its time on investigations. They have other functions that must be performed such as budgets to maintain at least minimum government functionality.

And satisfying the far-right's dream of England+Wales becoming....

a vassal state of the U.S. and the City of London a mere extension of Wall Street.
