Anyone hear anything about Herman Cain?

Remember about the 4th of July, he went into the hospital with Covid-19, which he'd apparently caught (along with Donnie Jr's girlfriend) at Trump's Tulsa rally.

Any news about him? The $%@^& Neil Boortz put out a rather suspicious tweet asking for prayers for Herman Cain. I wonder if that's supposed to prepare everyone that bad news is coming.

An article about how it came to be-

Putin paid to murder our soldiers

And Trump condoned it. He's trying to distract from that. Let's keep the Putin bounty for our soldiers in the news.

Nicole Wallace-- The White House feels it must declare--

That the president can read, walk, drink.

Setting the bar a little low!

Slate has a good summary of Trump's hate speech Saturday night


Other accounts focused just on the "testing," but this article goes into all the ways he urged his listeners to hate and attack.




Trump went beyond hatred, appealing explicitly to violence. He dismissed immigrants with criminal records as “animals” and praised Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents who “start swinging” at them. He extended this argument to Americans involved in the Floyd protests. Journalists “call them protesters,” he sneered, but they were really “thugs.” He encouraged his followers to take matters into their own hands. “When you see those lunatics all over the streets, it’s damn nice to have [fire]arms,” he declared. “Damn nice.”

Alexa is playing me old protest songs. Sam Cooke-- A change is going to come--

And this by the lovely and stern Nina.

When I think of how simply dangerous it was for black musicians to sing protest songs by them-- humbled. This is about MLK's death:

Nina Simone: Why (The King of Love Is Dead) -

What's gonna happen now? In all of our cities?
My people are rising; they're living in lies.
Even if they have to die
Even if they have to die at the moment they know what life is
Even at that one moment that ya know what life is
If you have to die, it's all right
Cause you know what life is
You know what freedom is for one moment of your life

But he had seen the mountaintop
And he knew he could not stop
Always living with the threat of death ahead
Folks you'd better stop and think
Everybody knows we're on the brink
What will happen, now that the King of love is dead?



Worst day for new cases?

In honor of Juneteenth, the incomparable Solomon Burke: None of Us Are Free-

None of us are free if one of us is chained.

Roger Goodell and NFL: Say his name say his name


Roger Goodell:"We, the National Football League, condemn racism and the systematic oppression of black people. We, the National Football League, admit we were wrong for not listening to NFL players earlier and encourage all players to speak out and peacefully protest. We, the National Football League, believe that black lives matter."

There was a name just hovering in my mind... I was waiting for him to say it. You know... that name that Goodell trashed and insulted... the name of the man who sacrificed his career for his right to protest police brutality.... What was his name again?

COLIN KAEPERNICK.
