Alex Jones Runs Around Yelling At People

"The Seattle livestream began in fairly typical Alex Jones style, with the InfoWars host using a recent global tragedy (Barcelona) as an excuse to rant about one of his favorite boogeymen (the lame-stream media). But it soon devolved into a random dude opening up his thermos and soaking Jones in coffee.

Who could have possibly foreseen that Jones wouldn't be greeted warmly in famously liberal Seattle?

In response to a question about whether a wild Alex Jones unleashed on city streets is worthy of police intervention, the Seattle PD responded with an awe-inspiring burn.”

Crisis Of The Week


Trump's Chaotic Four Weeks

CNN’s Brooke Baldwin on Friday had a priceless reaction to the news that Donald Trump has fired chief White House strategist Steve Bannon, reading headlines from the president’s “chaotic four weeks” that were so long she had to stop and drink a cup of water.

The Story Of The Game Genie - Gaming's Most Famous Cheating Device!



In the 80's, if you wanted extra lives, the ability to skip levels, to be invincible, or anything that wasn't included in your console's video game...you were out of luck. That all changed in 1990 when Codemasters created the Game Genie, opening the world of console video games to amazing ways to cheat and to an extent, a form of hacking.

The Game Genie was important not only for being a groundbreaking device but also for establishing a legal precedent. In this video we'll take a quick look at the Game Genie's various abilities and console versions, how it worked, as well as its fight just to make it to the market.

Donald Trump Responds To Barcelona Terror Attack With A Lie

Fleeing Trump, Charities Cancel Events At Mar-A-Lago

Three different charities have cancelled scheduled events at Mar-A-Lago after Trump’s refusal to denounce the attacks that took place over the weekend and by aligning himself with the alt right. This is a lot of money lost for Trump, but importantly, shows that these charities understand that some money just isn’t worth it, and they’ll find new venues to host their events. Ring of Fire’s Farron Cousins discusses this.

Trump Defends Confederacy More Than Southern Republican

Trump is defending Confederate monuments more than Lindsey Graham. Cenk Uygur, the host of The Young Turks, breaks it down.



“Washington (CNN)The feud between President Donald Trump and Sen. Lindsey Graham over the President's response to racially motivated protests in Charlottesville, Virginia, continued Thursday, with the South Carolina senator accusing Trump of stoking tensions, a claim Trump called "a disgusting lie."

"Your tweet honoring Miss Heyer was very nice and appropriate. Well done," the South Carolina lawmaker said Thursday morning, referring to Heather Heyer, the 32 year old woman who was killed in a car attack on Saturday. The man charged in her killing has been described as a Nazi sympathizer.

"However, because of the manner in which you have handled the Charlottesville tragedy, you are now receiving praise from some of the most racist and hate-filled individuals and groups in our country. For the sake of our nation -- as our President -- please fix this."

"History is watching us all," added Graham, who has been one of the few Republican lawmakers to directly denounce Trump's equivocation earlier this week between white supremacists and those who were protesting them in Charlottesville. The President blamed "both sides" for inciting violence and said there were "very fine people" protesting in the Virginia city amid the torch-bearing protesters.”

Fox News Admits They Can’t Find Republicans Willing To Defend Trump On The Air Anymore

After a string of disastrous press conferences – and an overall tanking of his presidency – Fox News host Shepard Smith admitted Wednesday that his team of producers were unable to find a single Republican willing to come on the air and defend Donald Trump’s disaster of a week.

When Fox News can’t find a pro-Trump Republican, you know things are getting bad in Trumpland.

PREDICTION: Trump Will Resign In Disgrace...Soon

Trump’s days in office are numbered. Cenk Uygur, the host of The Young Turks, breaks it down.

Moment Of Truth Coming For Trump

Trump’s response to the Charlottesville aftermath is earning him scorn from even his own party. Cenk Uygur, the host of The Young Turks, tells you how the moment of truth is coming.



“(CNN)Republican lawmakers and administration aides found themselves again Wednesday weighing the costs and benefits of remaining loyal to President Donald Trump, whose equivocal statements about neo-Nazis and white supremacists marked a dramatic shift in presidential rhetoric.

By Wednesday afternoon, most appeared to have made their calculation: deserting Trump now could only harm — and not help — their agendas or political fortunes.

Republican leaders in Congress, including House Speaker Paul Ryan and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, released statements affirming their disavowal of white supremacist groups and neo-Nazis — but not explicitly condemning Trump, who said Tuesday there were "very fine people" protesting in Charlottesville amid the torch-bearing marchers.

Within the White House, Trump's aides privately expressed indignation at the derailed news conference, which unraveled on cable television Tuesday afternoon and has been replayed endlessly since.

But they, too, stopped short of declaring their consternation publicly, determined instead to remain focused on their agenda and keep the President occupied.

Trump himself has remained largely silent on the matter. But inside the glassed-in confines of Trump Tower — where he remained inside for nearly two days straight — the President was defiant in the wake of the ensuing backlash, according to two people who visited the building on Wednesday.”

How To Impeach Donald Trump

What we can learn from Reconstruction, Watergate, and the Clinton saga.

Trump Newser Was A Declaration Of War, This Is A Battle For The Soul Of America

Roland Martin delivered a blistering commentary in response to Donald Trump’s bizarre impromptu press conference where he doubled down on his initial Charlottesville remarks.

As dark as this day is, we WILL be rid of him.

By TheFerret

God, the obscenity of this day.

Even without the violence and the tragedy, is there a lower moral hurdle to clear than "Denounce the bastards wearing swastikas and chanting Nazi slogans?"

And when an American citizen is killed by a terrorist in service of one of history's most evil ideologies, is it really so much to ask of Trump, "Stand WITH us, AGAINST them?"

Apparently so.

To a nation mourning a terrorist attack, he offered neither healing nor calm. Instead, he bragged about how well he did in the primary. Bragged about the economy. Attacked the press. Whined. Aired old grievances. Spit piss at John McCain for robbing him of a victory on health care. Motherfucking boasted about owning a fucking winery in a community still washing blood off the ground.

And all that is abominable enough.

But then he did all he could to give cover to the terrorist's ideology. To lessen its evil. He stood at a podium adorned with the Presidential seal, and suggested that those who opposed white supremacy were equally as bad as those who killed in its name.

There were "very fine people" among the Nazis. The white supremacists were the ones with the permit, so in a way, THEY have the high ground. My God.

In his loathsome statements today, Donald Trump blamed Heather Heyer for her own death. By standing in protest of these diseased ideologies, Trump said, she was merely part of a regrettable morass where everybody was a little bit right, and nobody was totally wrong.

Not even the Nazis.

Whether it's Bob Mueller dragging him out of the Oval in cuffs, or the House GOP defensively impeaching him as his approval rating seeks absolute zero, or H.R. McMaster slapping a straight-jacket on him before he can order bombers to attack CNN headquarters, or even, if we absolutely MUST wait so long, a deafening electoral avalanche in November 2020, the day is surely coming when we will be push this shit stain out of the People's House forever. As dark as this day is, we WILL be rid of him.

And when he's gone, we must NEVER stop scrubbing his stink from our nation.

Every executive order will be reversed. However long it takes, we will sandblast every molecule of his legacy from our government.

We'll rip every portrait off every wall.

Should anyone attempt to erect any monuments to this Blight on Decency, know the sun will never set on a single one of them, we'll tear them down so quick.

Should you break ground on a Presidential Library honoring this indecent fuck, know that we'll salt the earth before we let you so much as pour the foundation.

Should you slap his shitty little name on a battleship, future generations will refuse to serve on it, and it will rust and sink, forgotten and shunned.

We will hound Trump and Trumpism from our nation, however long it takes.

We. Will. Take. Our. Country. Back.

ROBERT E. LEE'S DIRECT DESCENDANT DENOUNCES CHARLOTTESVILLE WHITE NATIONALISTS: 'THERE'S NO PLACE FOR THAT HATE'

By

Three days after Charlottesville, Virginia, erupted into violence and racial unrest, the family of Robert E. Lee is denouncing the white nationalist groups who rallied and marched to preserve a statue of the long-dead Civil War general.

"There's no place for that," Robert E. Lee V tells Newsweek, referring to the white supremacist protesters who carried torches and marched through Charlottesville on Friday. "There's no place for that hate."

The statue of Lee, which has stood in Charlottesville since 1924, is now at the center of a racially charged conflict that has gripped the city and resulted in one woman's death. In February, the local city council decided to remove the statue from the park, noting that for many people, such Confederate monuments are "painful reminders of the violence and injustice of slavery and other harms of white supremacy that are best removed from public spaces." In May, white supremacist Richard Spencer organized a demonstration in support of the monument, and on Friday evening, a large group of torch-bearing white nationalist marchers descended on Charlottesville to protest the decision to remove the statue.

Related: Charlottesville statue of Robert E. Lee should be 'relocated,' says Jefferson Davis's great-great-grandson

Lee, a great-great-grandson of the Confederate hero, and his sister, Tracy Lee Crittenberger, issued a written statement on Tuesday condemning the "hateful words and violent actions of white supremacists, the KKK or neo-Nazis."

Then, Lee spoke with Newsweek by phone.

"We don't believe in that whatsoever," Lee says. He is quick to defend his ancestor's name: "Our belief is that General Lee would not tolerate that sort of behavior either. His first thing to do after the Civil War was to bring the Union back together, so we could become a more unified country."

The general was a slave owner who led the Confederate Army of Northern Virginia during the Civil War and who remains a folk hero throughout much of the South.

"We don't want people to think that they can hide behind Robert E. Lee's name and his life for these senseless acts of violence that occurred on Saturday," Lee says.

The Lee heir says it would make sense to remove the embattled statue from public display and put it in a museum—a view shared by the great-great-grandson of Jefferson Davis.

"I think that is absolutely an option, to move it to a museum and put it in the proper historical context," Lee says. "Times were very different then. We look at the institution of slavery, and it's absolutely horrendous. Back then, times were just extremely different. We understand that it's complicated in 2017, when you look back at that period of time...  If you want to put statues of General Lee or other Confederate people in museums, that makes good sense."

Lee, who works as a boys' athletic director at the Potomac School outside Washington D.C., says that his family was raised to believe that his great-great-grandfather "was fighting for his homeland of Virginia" and not for the preservation of slavery.

Historians, though, typically agree that the Confederate cause was "thoroughly identified with the institution of slavery," to quote from Mississippi's own declaration of secession. The Southern states that seceded were largely motivated by a desire to continue owning and using black slaves as property. (Lee's own personal views on slavery are commonly debated, though the general did own slaves and, as The Atlantic notes, "raged against Republican efforts to enforce racial equality on the South.")

The debate over Confederate monuments has erupted in other cities such as New Orleans, where a statue of Jefferson Davis was recently removed, and Durham, where protesters tore down a Confederate monument on Monday evening.

For the Lee family, the question of Confederate iconography is complicated as their family name becomes a rallying point for white nationalists. The younger Lee hopes that lawmakers and citizens in individual communities will "talk it over and [decide] what makes best sense for them in the times that we're living in today."

Lee declined to comment on Donald Trump's administration, nor on his erratic response to Charlottesville.

Here's the Lee family's statement in its entirety:
The events of the past weekend in Charlottesville were a terrible tragedy for America, for the state of Virginia and for us, the descendants of General Robert E. Lee. Our family extends our deepest condolences to the families who lost a loved one. We send our heartfelt sympathy to those who were injured, and pray for their recovery.
General Lee's life was about duty, honor and country. At the end of the Civil War, he implored the nation to come together to heal our wounds and to move forward to become a more unified nation. He never would have tolerated the hateful words and violent actions of white supremacists, the KKK, or Neo Nazis.
While the debate about how we memorialize figures from our past continues, we the descendants of Robert E. Lee decry in the strongest terms the misuse of his memory by those advancing a message of intolerance and hate. We urge the nation’s leaders as well as local citizens to engage in a civil, respectful and non-hateful conversation.
As Americans and as human beings it is essential that we respect one another and treat others as we ourselves wish to be treated. As General Lee wrote in his diary, “the great duty of life is the promotion of the happiness and welfare of our fellow man.”

Seven (Or So) Calm Takeaways From Trump's Mad Tantrum In Trump Tower

Posted by Rude One

1. If you are fighting to prevent a statue of Robert E. Lee from being taken down, you are, in fact, a white supremacist. Trump said today of Charlottesville that there were "very fine people...in that group that were there to protest the taking down, of to them, a very, very important statue and the renaming of a park from Robert E. Lee to another name." No, you are not a very fine person. You support the Confederacy and slavery, which is what Robert E. Lee fought for. By definition, you are not "very fine." This is not difficult.

2. Trump said, "It looked like they had some rough, bad people, neo-Nazis, white nationalists, whatever you want to call ‘em. But you had a lot of people in that group that were there to innocently protest and very legally protest." If you march with neo-Nazis and chant racist things with white nationalists, it doesn't matter how legal your protest is. You are still a Nazi. You are still a white nationalist. And, legal march or not, you should be scorned. Not scorning them is supporting them.

3. Trump said, "Many of those people were there to protest the taking down of the statue of Robert E. Lee. So this week, it’s Robert E. Lee, I noticed that Stonewall Jackson’s coming down. I wonder, is it George Washington next week? And is it Thomas Jefferson the week after. You know, you really do have to ask yourself, where does it stop?" George Washington and Thomas Jefferson were slaveowners. They also helped create the United States which led to the freeing of the slaves. It's complicated, and, yes, we should have a discussion of their place in our understanding of history. Robert E. Lee was a slaveowner who, as I said above, fought so that a country of seceded states could keep slaves. The same goes for Stonewall Jackson. Lee and Jackson are not equal to Washington and Jefferson just like Donald Trump is not worth a hair on Abraham Lincoln's balls.

3a. Could we clone Lincoln from a hair on his balls? Just thinking out loud here.

4. In the same way, both sides of the Charlottesville conflict were not equal, despite Trump's insistence that they were. Yes, there was violence from the counter protesters, but nothing like the violence from the "innocently" protesting racists, including, you know, murder. And, not to get redundant here, but one side was Nazis. The other side was against Nazis. To say "there is blame on both sides" is to say that Nazis are the same as not-Nazis. If you cannot say that not-Nazis are objectively better than Nazis, you have nothing useful to add to any conversation.

5. Trump said that Friday night's tiki-torch protest was done "very quietly." Many pictures from the event show white men and a few white women yelling or chanting. It is patently false to say it was quiet. And if they weren't chanting, they were making the Nazi salute, which is louder than just about any noise.

6. If I were John McCain, I'd be looking out for polonium in my tea. When a McCain comment was brought up, Trump gritted his teeth and said, "Senator McCain? Senator McCain. You mean the one that voted against Obamacare? Who is Senator McCain? You mean Senator McCain who voted against us getting good health care?" He sounded stabby. Also, if I were John McCain, I'd think nothing of using my last year or so on earth to destroy the dangerous man who mocked my imprisonment and torture.

6a. If anyone know who these supposed rational Republicans are, now would be a good time for them to reveal themselves. Hopefully, the denouncement are rolling in, or we're in deep, deep trouble.

7. Anyone who can watch that press conference and not think that we are being led by a deranged, out-of-control racist is someone who will never be convinced about Trump's unfitness for office. Which means we should be seeing a New York Times article about those people in the next day or so.

7a. Obviously, everything Trump said yesterday was a lie, but we already realised that.

7b. We knew we were in scary territory with Trump. We are now living the beginning of a dystopian TV series. It's up to us to make sure it's canceled before it gets renewed for another season.

'A misogynist, racist bigoted pig is in the W.H!'

CNN’s Ana Navarro on Tuesday went off on Donald Trump, arguing if he cannot stand for people of every color and creed, he “should not be president.”



Navarro was speaking with former Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer and CNN’s Don Lemon about the president’s incredible press conference, where he equated neo-Nazi’s with the counter-protestors standing against bigotry and white supremacism.

Brewer claimed Trump “took the bull by the horns” Tuesday, arguing the real issue is the “relentless reporting and this relentless attacking of him.”

“I thought his speech on Saturday was fine,” Brewer said. “I thought the one on Monday was terrific. I thought today he came forward and spoke from his heart.”

“No one ever talks about the left,” she later added, echoing Trump’s sentiment.

‘If you support the racist, you are the racist’

Documentary filmmaker Michael Moore on Wednesday didn’t mince words when discussing Donald Trump’s free-wheeling press conference that equated neo-Nazi’s with anti-fascist protestors, arguing that the president is a racist—and so is anyone who supports him.

Moore told Don Lemon that the first thing he did after Trump’s briefing at Trump Tower was flip on CNN, where the host was delivering an emotional response to the president’s rhetoric.





“It was very powerful,” Moore said of Lemon’s speech. “You talk about African American kids who have to walk in to a high school under name Robert E. Lee, a statue of a man who wanted them dead or enslaved. I don’t want to hear this. I don’t want any fellow American … to ever feel the way you describe how so many black kids grow up in this country having to feel. This has to stop.”

“He was elected by white America,” Moore said, later adding “they voted for Trump because they were angry. They voted for Trump because they wanted to throw a bomb into the system that hurt them.”

Moore said he believes white Americans have a right to be upset, but black Americans also have a right to be upset.

“[Black Americans] don’t go to the polls and vote for the hater,” Moore said. “Black Americans, by a large margin, vote for the person who doesn’t hate, who’s trying to love.”

Moore explained that most white people he’s spoken with insist they’re not racists, even if they supported someone who may be. “If you vote for a racist, what are you then?” Moore asked.

“Because it sure sounds like racism to me.”

Asked by Lemon if he believes Trump is a racist, Moore replied, unequivocally, yes.

“He’s absolutely a racist,” Moore said. “He’s not as stupid as people want to believe he is. He knows exactly what he’s doing, he knows the words to use and I’m certain the 63 million people who voted for him actually—the vast majority of them—love that press conference.”

Lemon countered that Trump supporters might “take offense” to begin called racists, prompting Moore to provide what Lemon called an “uncomfortable” comparison.

“If you hold down the woman while the rapist is raping her, but you didn’t rape her, are you a rapist?” Moore asked. “Let’s cut the BS, let’s start speaking honestly. If you vote for a man who says what he said today—that the white nationalists were the victims, that he equated George Washington and Thomas Jefferson with Robert E. Lee and said that the people there trying to stop the racism, the anti-racism protesters, that they were the violent ones—it just went so far.”

“That’s a very powerful and uncomfortable anecdote you shared, and people will think you’re comparing Trump voters to rapists,” Lemon said.

“Yeah, it’s uncomfortable, isn’t it?” Moore asked. “Because enablers of immoral behavior, of criminal behavior… it is absolutely criminal to stand behind the people that killed Heather Heyer, that beat the heads in of people who were trying to speak their minds in Charlottesville. If you are there, and if it you participate—even though you’re not the actual person doing it—if you helped to put Donald Trump in office, you need to think about this before you kneel down and say your prayers tonight. Think about this person that you now have leading this country.”

Lemon restated he found Moore’s comparison “uncomfortable.”

“Well, it was uncomfortable watching this today, and anyone who supports that—if you still support the racist, you are the racist,” Moore replied. “That has to end. I’m not sorry. I’m not letting anybody off the hook here. White people who voted for him.”

“America has to stand up,” he continued. “We cannot any longer mealy-mouth about this. Anybody who enables, anybody who votes for and supports a racist, is a racist. You are culpable white America, I’m sorry. But there is redemption for you.”

The Alt-Right White House? Trump Admin Full Of Alt-Right Champions

After intense pressure, Trump finally condemned white supremacists, but he still has alt-right champions working in the White House right now.

Steve Bannon is the White House Chief Strategist, who ran Breitbart which proclaimed itself the home of the alt-right. Stephen Miller, who is the Senior Advisor for policy, is reportedly the mentee of white nationalist Richard Spencer. And Sebastian Gorka the deputy assistant to Trump wore the medal of a Nazi organization to Trump's inauguration.

‘You’re watching a presidency go off the rails’

Jim Acosta on Tuesday went off on Donald Trump’s “strange, surreal stunning and baffling” press conference, explaining the world witnessed “a presidency go off the rails.”





“The president was trying to have it both ways during this news conference,” Acosta said. “At one point he said he likes to wait to see all the facts come in, he said he did not know that David Duke was at that protest on Saturday in Charlottesville, but at the same time he said later on—almost in the same breath—that he was watching the events unfolding in Charlottesville, ‘very closely.’”

“The other thing that he tried to say at one point is that not all of the protesters in that white supremacist, neo-Nazi crowd were bad people,” Acosta continued, noting authorities would say the white supremacists were “very much responsible for that violence and that unrest that unfolded.”

“Keep in mind this is the same president who said that Barack Obama was not born in this country and that Barack Obama wiretapped him here at Trump Tower without any proof at all,” Acosta noted, referring to Trump’s assertion that he wanted to be accurate in his statement after Charlottesville. “So, for a president to come out here and say he likes to wait for the facts to come in, the record reflects that he does not always do that, and you could probably make the case that he does not very often wait for the facts to come in.”

“This was the president I think unguarded, unvarnished, unplugged,” Acosta continued. “These were the real views of the president of the United States today. What we saw at the White House yesterday where he came out with that very scripted statement, that was not really the president of the United States deep down inside.”

“Donald Trump made his true colors very clear here inside of Trump tower and it felt like when you’re watching it here in person, you’re not just seeing a press conference go off the rails or jump the tracks, you are watching a presidency go off the rails and jump the tracks. It was just that strange, surreal, stunning and baffling to watch,” the CNN reporter concluded.

Anti-Trump Site Under Seige From Justice Department

The Justice Department wants to know who’s visiting this anti-Trump website. Cenk Uygur and Ana Kasparian, the hosts of The Young Turks, break it down. Tell us what you think in the comment section below. https://tytnetwork.com/join/



“The Department of Justice has requested information on visitors to a website used to organize protests against President Trump, the Los Angeles-based Dreamhost said in a blog post published on Monday.

Dreamhost, a web hosting provider, said that it has been working with the Department of Justice for several months on the request, which believes goes too far under the Constitution.

DreamHost claimed that the complying with the request from the Justice Department would amount to handing over roughly 1.3 million visitor IP addresses to the government, in addition to contact information, email content and photos of thousands of visitors to the website, which was involved in organizing protests against Trump on Inauguration Day.

“That information could be used to identify any individuals who used this site to exercise and express political speech protected under the Constitution’s First Amendment,” DreamHost wrote in the blog post on Monday. “That should be enough to set alarm bells off in anyone’s mind.”

When contacted, the Justice Department directed The Hill to the U.S. attorney's office in D.C. The U.S. attorney's office declined to comment but provided the filings related to the case.

The company is currently challenging the request. A hearing on the matter is scheduled for Friday in Washington.”

“There's trouble in Trumpland.

The voters who backed Donald Trump like the disruption but are looking for more function from the outsider they helped put in the White House, members of the USA TODAY Network Trump Voter Panel say.

While they still approve of the job President Trump is doing, the collapse of the GOP's promise to repeal the Affordable Care Act has rattled some of his loyalists. So have chaos in the White House staff and the public humiliation of Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

"All the bickering, fighting and firings take time away from solving all of our problems," worried Joe Canino, 62, of Hebron, Ct.

"The caveat or the pause there is, he's got to figure out a way to get more done collaboratively with Capitol Hill," Barney Carter of St. Marys, Ga., said. "The Hill to me has the most to blame for it, but he's got to figure out a way to solve that problem.”

Rep. Gwen Moore calls for Trump's removal

Rep. Gwen Moore called for the removal of President Trump following his comments about the violence in Charlottesville. House Speaker Paul Ryan also tweeted his opposition of the president's remarks on Tuesday.
