Considering how the Russians interfered in our last elections, and Trump's coziness with Vladimir Putin, and the fact that Trump's own government is saying we can't stop the Russians from interfering in our next election, am I the ONLY one who thinks Trump calling for a "Red Wave" is unfortunate at best?

I mean it's like, he doesn't care how people ACTUALLY vote, the Russians will ensure a landslide Republican victory?

I have been saying this all along, for that very reason. They could stop Russian interference in the election but president 666 and his minions don't want to. He doesn't think Putin will have him eliminated when he is of no further use to him.

The "Red Wave" will be from all the hands made red by spanking him and the republicans at the polls this November by the voters and not porn stars.

I think this prediction is something that Vlad has whispered into his ear.

It's a good thing that the culinary workers have a union that has the funds to negotiate contracts that [quote=https://www.casino.org/news/las-vegas-union-wants-visitors-to-stop-sexually-harassing-workers]protects it's members[/quote]:

The Culinary Union says in a survey of 10,000 of its members that 59 percent of cocktail servers and 27 percent of hotel room attendants report being sexually harassed by guests, managers, or others while on the job. Seventy-two percent of cocktail servers and 53 percent of housekeepers additionally said they’ve felt uncomfortable and/or unsafe due to the actions of a guest.

*snip*

However, union officials aren’t willing to budge on several key contract demands. While they’re seeking higher wages and the protection of current benefits, assuring their members’ safety on the job is also of utmost concern.

The Culinary Union wants all employees required to enter hotel rooms to be equipped with safety buttons that would immediately notify security in the event of an emergency. The union says MGM and Caesars have responded positively to that request.

Union leaders are also asking Las Vegas visitors to, well, behave.

“We are pleased on the progress in discussions with the companies about sexual harassment and safety,” union Secretary-Treasurer Geoconda Argüello-Kline said in a statement. “We want to make sure Las Vegas visitors know they have to respect casino workers and they cannot abuse them.”

Sexual harassment has become a nationwide issue as a result of the #MeToo movement, and doesn’t, of course, only involve tourists and high rollers.

Steve Wynn’s career as a casino developer and mogul came to a close after numerous women came forward with allegations that he repeatedly harassed them and forced them to commit unwanted sex acts, and restaurateur Mario Batali saw his three Las Vegas Strip restaurants shut down amid an NYPD investigation into his own alleged abuses of female employees.


Let's be clear: Casino owners WILL NOT DO THIS BECAUSE IT'S THE RIGHT THING TO DO. THEY MUST BE COERCED BY THE UNIONS BY THREAT OF STRIKE TO PROTECT THEIR EMPLOYEES.

It takes money to negotiate these contracts. I'd say the money paid by the workers to the union can prevent assaults and worse.

Workers must take care of themselves, because employers sure as hell won't.

Absolutely they have something planned again. The plan never ceased. We're still under attack with the same ops.

And the 4th of July Red wave apparently kicks off in Russia, when a handful of GOP Senators will be in Russia meeting with Pooty.

Richard Shelby, AL
John N. Kennedy, LA
John Hoeven, ND
Steve Daines, MT.

Seriously, on the 4th of July. Meeting with the leader of a country that attacked America and continues to do so.

When did the GOP become friends with the Kremlin? Republicans used to despise Russia.

Traitors, all of em.

Oh look, Bolton and Rick Perry are getting set to meet with Russians as well.

No collusion though... :roll:


This is pure fuckery. This has to stop.

they have been making preperations

America's poor becoming more destitute under Trump, UN report says

Quote:
Americans born into poverty are more likely than ever before to stay that way, according to a United Nations report on poverty and inequality in the US.

"The United States, one of the world's richest nations and the "land of opportunity," is fast becoming a champion of inequality," the report concluded.

The Trump administration has slammed the UN report arguing the organization should instead focus on poverty in the third world.

US Ambassador to the UN Nicki Haley said, "It is patently ridiculous for the United Nations to examine poverty in America."............

You can't sway the true believers. Don't even try. They are unsalvageable, and they lurch from one asshole Dear Leader who's saving (white Protestant) America to the next. Leave them to faux and go after the largely apolitical majority.

The only red wave in the urban dictionary relates to the female "time of the month."

Elections are won by the middle ground of voters which include those Republicans
open minded enough to be swayed. Those voters who listened to George Will and
Steve Schmidt like Glen are die hard Republicans but are open minded enough to
be offended by this current President and either will vote for an alternative or
not vote at all.

I tend to think we need to find a lot more Conor Lambs as opposed to more flaming
liberal types, especially in those Red States. Democrats need to present themselves
as the only real alternative for a check on the excesses of Donald Trump. Its clear
this President owns the current GOP and is willing to purge his party of any
dissent to his power. Elect more Trump Republicans and we'll have a congress
that resembles the Reichstag in 1933. Tell those swing voters its in their own
best interests to not give this President unlimited power.

the fascists were funny as hell until the conservatives let them in.

end result was Italy and Germany and ww2.

not saying the end result is foreordained, just saying do not take these people lightly nor ignore them. co-optaion to neutralize is far better.

How the Koch Brothers Are Killing Public Transit Projects Around the Country

Quote:
........In cities and counties across the country — including Little Rock, Ark.; Phoenix, Ariz.; southeast Michigan; central Utah; and here in Tennessee — the Koch brothers are fueling a fight against public transit, an offshoot of their longstanding national crusade for lower taxes and smaller government.

At the heart of their effort is a network of activists who use a sophisticated data service built by the Kochs, called i360, that helps them identify and rally voters who are inclined to their worldview. It is a particularly powerful version of the technologies used by major political parties.

In places like Nashville, Koch-financed activists are finding tremendous success.

Early polling here had suggested that the $5.4 billion transit plan would easily pass. It was backed by the city’s popular mayor and a coalition of businesses. Its supporters had outspent the opposition, and Nashville was choking on cars.

“This is why grass roots works,” said Tori Venable, Tennessee state director for Americans for Prosperity, which made almost 42,000 phone calls and knocked on more than 6,000 doors........

this too is kids in cages, sowing the seeds

Supreme Court allows most disputed maps in Texas, NC gerrymandering cases to be used

Quote:
Disputed maps likely to be used in next election


The Supreme Court on Monday ruled on two highly anticipated gerrymandering cases in Texas and North Carolina, in orders that mean most of the controversial maps in both states will likely be used this fall's midterm elections.

The court upheld three of four district maps in Texas that critics argued intentionally discriminated against minority voters, but struck down one.

In North Carolina, it wiped away a lower court opinion that had invalidated congressional maps there as an unconstitutional partisan gerrymander.

The decision on Monday marked yet another step by the Supreme Court on gerrymandering cases. Last week, the court punted on alleged gerrymandering in Wisconsin and Maryland, allowing the maps to stand for now.

"The common thread in the court's gerrymandering decisions this term has been to generally make it harder for plaintiffs to bring these claims," said CNN legal analyst and University of Texas Law School professor Steve Vladeck, "and to generally allow states more flexibility and deference in drawing congressional and state district lines."................
