‘Anti-modernist’ Trump aims to sink Iran deal as part of Obama legacy destruction – German FM

Sigmar Gabriel targeted the US president during an interview with the Handelsblatt business daily on Thursday. He said the American leader is making the world a more dangerous place while aiming to dismantle his predecessor’s legacy.

“Donald Trump represents anti-modernity,” Gabriel told Handelsblatt. “The goal of Donald Trump is to destroy what his predecessor [Barack] Obama took pains to achieve: first healthcare reform, then the international climate deal, and now the nuclear deal with Iran.” 

A collapse of the 2015 Iran nuclear agreement represents the world’s “biggest foreign-policy threat” at the moment, Gabriel asserted.

In a major global policy shift last week, Trump decertified the nuclear deal, giving the US Congress 60 days to decide whether to impose economic sanctions on Tehran again, after they were lifted under the agreement.

Gabriel commented that considering new US sanctions against Iran would amount to “an attack on the German export-model.” The move, feared in many world capitals, could “de facto” ruin the deal if Washington does not formally end it.

“The world will not become more secure should Iran, after a collapse of the nuclear deal, make a decision to arm itself with nuclear weapons after all,” the German foreign minister added.

During the conversation, Gabriel also lamented “reactionary ideas” that are spreading across the US. “Instead of cosmopolitanism, there is now isolation from the world. Instead of common responsibility, now we have ‘America First.’”

In addition, German foreign ministry chief noted that “instead of strengthening international law, we have the international law of the strongest.”

It isn’t the first time Gabriel, a Social Democrat, has attacked the Republican president. Addressing the international community from the UN podium in September, the German diplomat cautioned against “national egoism” in a veiled reference to Trump. 

In early October, Gabriel warned the demise of the Iran deal would send the Middle East into “hot crises,” while “an immediate threat of a new war” would be considered by Israel. He said that Tehran is adhering to the 2015 deal, which was also confirmed by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), a principal nuclear watchdog.

The US pulling out from the deal “would send a devastating signal for nuclear disarmament,” Gabriel said in October. “Some states could understand a failure of the Iran agreement as a signal to provide themselves with nuclear weapons as fast as possible,” he said, apparently referring to North Korea.

FBI Uncovered Russian Bribery Plot Before Obama Administration Approved Controversial Nuclear Deal with Moscow






FBI Uncovered Russian Bribery Plot Before Obama Administration Approved Controversial Nuclear Deal with Moscow


October 17th, 2017

Via: The Hill:

Before the Obama administration approved a controversial deal in 2010 giving Moscow control of a large swath of American uranium, the FBI had gathered substantial evidence that Russian nuclear industry officials were engaged in bribery, kickbacks, extortion and money laundering designed to grow Vladimir Putin’s atomic energy business inside the United States, according to government documents and interviews.

Federal agents used a confidential U.S. witness working inside the Russian nuclear industry to gather extensive financial records, make secret recordings and intercept emails as early as 2009 that showed Moscow had compromised an American uranium trucking firm with bribes and kickbacks in violation of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, FBI and court documents show.

They also obtained an eyewitness account — backed by documents — indicating Russian nuclear officials had routed millions of dollars to the U.S. designed to benefit former President Bill Clinton’s charitable foundation during the time Secretary of State Hillary Clinton served on a government body that provided a favorable decision to Moscow, sources told The Hill.

The racketeering scheme was conducted “with the consent of higher level officials� in Russia who “shared the proceeds� from the kickbacks, one agent declared in an affidavit years later.

Rather than bring immediate charges in 2010, however, the Department of Justice (DOJ) continued investigating the matter for nearly four more years, essentially leaving the American public and Congress in the dark about Russian nuclear corruption on U.S. soil during a period when the Obama administration made two major decisions benefitting Putin’s commercial nuclear ambitions.

The first decision occurred in October 2010, when the State Department and government agencies on the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States unanimously approved the partial sale of Canadian mining company Uranium One to the Russian nuclear giant Rosatom, giving Moscow control of more than 20 percent of America’s uranium supply.

When this sale was used by Trump on the campaign trail last year, Hillary Clinton’s spokesman said she was not involved in the committee review and noted the State Department official who handled it said she “never intervened … on any [Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States] matter.â€�

In 2011, the administration gave approval for Rosatom’s Tenex subsidiary to sell commercial uranium to U.S. nuclear power plants in a partnership with the United States Enrichment Corp. Before then, Tenex had been limited to selling U.S. nuclear power plants reprocessed uranium recovered from dismantled Soviet nuclear weapons under the 1990s Megatons to Megawatts peace program.

“The Russians were compromising American contractors in the nuclear industry with kickbacks and extortion threats, all of which raised legitimate national security concerns. And none of that evidence got aired before the Obama administration made those decisions,� a person who worked on the case told The Hill, speaking on condition of anonymity for fear of retribution by U.S. or Russian officials.

The Obama administration’s decision to approve Rosatom’s purchase of Uranium One has been a source of political controversy since 2015.

That’s when conservative author Peter Schweitzer and The New York Times documented how Bill Clinton collected hundreds of thousands of dollars in Russian speaking fees and his charitable foundation collected millions in donations from parties interested in the deal while Hillary Clinton presided on the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States.

The Obama administration and the Clintons defended their actions at the time, insisting there was no evidence that any Russians or donors engaged in wrongdoing and there was no national security reason for any member of the committee to oppose the Uranium One deal.

But FBI, Energy Department and court documents reviewed by The Hill show the FBI in fact had gathered substantial evidence well before the committee’s decision that Vadim Mikerin — the main Russian overseeing Putin’s nuclear expansion inside the United States — was engaged in wrongdoing starting in 2009.

Then-Attorney General Eric Holder was among the Obama administration officials joining Hillary Clinton on the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States at the time the Uranium One deal was approved. Multiple current and former government officials told The Hill they did not know whether the FBI or DOJ ever alerted committee members to the criminal activity they uncovered.

Spokesmen for Holder and Clinton did not return calls seeking comment. The Justice Department also didn’t comment.

Nets Forget Obama Admin Championed Bergdahl as a ‘Hero’ Coming Home

In a military courtroom in Ft. Bragg, North Carolina on Monday, Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl pleaded guilty to charges of desertion and misbehavior before the enemy and faces up to life in prison. Back in 2014, President Obama traded five dangerous terrorists to get Bergdahl back. And in a flawed political calculation, the administration championed him as a ‘hero.’ But considering the massive blowback that followed the ill-advised move, the Big Three Networks omitted that from their Monday evening reports.

Following the trade, Obama held a flashy press conference in the White House Rose Garden with Bergdahl’s parents to commend the man who left his post to enter the arms of the Taliban. During that time, now infamous National Security Advisor Susan Rice told ABC that:

That is really not the point. The point is that he’s back. He’s going to be safely reunited with his family. He served the United States with honor and distinction and we’ll have the opportunity, eventually, to learn what has transpired in the past years, but what’s most important now is his health and well-being. That he has the opportunity to recover in peace and security and be reunited with his family, which is why this is such a joyous day.

And on Monday’s World News Tonight, ABC’s Brian Ross complained about how Bergdahl was treated by the public. “…The homecoming celebration for Bergdahl was short lived. Bergdahl was attacked for risking the lives of fellow soldiers who went searching for him,” he bizarrely bemoaned. Ross then pushed Bergdahl’s claim that President Trump was the reason he couldn’t get a fair trial. “Bergdahl says a fair trial would have been impossible given the words of Donald Trump.

We may as well go back to kangaroo courts and lynch mobs that got what they wanted,” Bergdahl said in an interview. “The people who are to the point of saying, yeah, just shoot him, you can never convince those people to change their minds.

By entertaining Bergdahl’s claims, Ross was aiding the suggestion that the military court couldn’t possibly be impartial and operates at the whim of the president.

Bergdahl’s desertion to the Taliban was devastating to the members of his platoon who risked their lives to find him. And when Obama finally made the trade they spoke out against it and led the charge against the administration’s false claims that he was a hero. The only mention of them came from NBC who found one who said: “The fact that he’s admitted that he did desert and misbehaved in front of the enemy has brought a lot of vindication and peace to me.

And when it came to reporting about the efforts to find Bergdahl in the wake of his desertion, the networks asserted that only two soldiers were wounded in the search. “At least two American service members were seriously wounded while searching for Bergdahl,” reported Anchor Anthony Mason on CBS Evening News.

But according to a CNN report from 2014, written by Jake Tapper, there may have been six soldiers killed in the process. “Interviews with soldiers familiar with the specific missions in which the six died suggest the charge is complicated — but not without merit given how much the 501st Parachute Infantry Regiment became focused on “PR” — personnel recovery — after Bergdahl vanished from his guard post on June 30, 2009,” Tapper wrote.

Despite how unfavorable the trade for Bergdahl was, the liberal networks clearly would do anything to protect the image of the Obama administration.

ANTHONY MASON: Army Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl pleaded guilty today in military court to desertion and misbehavior toward the enemy. The latter charge could put him behind wars for life.

LESTER HOLT: Tonight, a guilty plea from Army Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl who walked off his base in Afghanistan in 2009, was held for five years by the Taliban and returned in a controversial prisoner swap in 2014. At Ft. Bragg, North Carolina, Bergdahl pleaded guilty to desertion and misbehavior before the enemy and could face life in prison. Our Pentagon correspondent Hans Nichols has details.

[Cuts back to live]

HANS NICHOLS: Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl acknowledged today he had put his comrades in danger. “I left my platoon in a battlefield,” he said, calling it “a situation that could easily turn into a life or death situation.” At least two American service members were seriously wounded as U.S. forces searched for Bergdahl. The Taliban had captured him almost immediately and would hold him for the next five years until he was released in exchange for five Taliban prisoners. Today’s guilty plea offered some comfort to one soldier in his platoon.

SGT. JORDAN VAUGHN (RET.): The fact that he’s admitted that he did desert and misbehaved in front of the enemy has brought a lot of vindication and peace to me.

NICHOLS: The prisoner release was controversial. Then-candidate Trump was highly critical.

DONALD TRUMP: And 30 years ago he would have been shot.

NICHOLS: Bergdahl said he left his post to report misconduct by his commanders. An Army investigation said that he may have been delusional. Concluding, “Bergdahl’s mental state substantially contributed to his unreasonable decision to desert.”

COL. JACK JACOBS (RET.): The fact that the Taliban kept him penned up for five years is the result of his walking into the hands of the Taliban. The United States of America still needs to extract punishment for what he did.

[Cuts back to live]

NICHOLS: The judge found Bergdahl guilty of desertion for just one day, not his entire time in captivity. Sentencing is set to begin next Monday, and he faces up to life in prison. Hans Nichols, NBC news, the Pentagon.

Nets Denounce Health Care Executive Order as Threat to Obama’s Legacy

On Thursday, President Trump, with the aid of Kentucky Senator Rand Paul, unveiled an executive order designed to bring new freedom to the health insurance market by allowing people to form associations in order to buy insurance across state lines. But the Big Three Networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) weren’t going to lie down and let people have affordable insurance. Instead, they would lie and mislead about what the order actually did and about how it would affect people’s insurance.

President Trump beginning to dismantle his predecessor’s signature achievement by unveiling plans today to allow small businesses and individuals to buy insurance that does not meet the minimum ObamaCare requirements,” whined Anchor Lester Holt during NBC Nightly News.

The united narrative that the networks were pushing was that the order specifically targeted and eliminated all of the mandatory benefits provided by ObamaCare. “What it does, it triggers a review of changes that would allow insurance companies to offer stripped-down insurance policies,” claimed ABC Chief White House Correspondent Jon Karl. “Those would mean lower premiums for people that get those stripped-down plans, but health care experts warn that such plans could offer no coverage for basic services like maternity care, prescription drugs, and even ambulance services.

And in addition to that assertion, CBS and NBC were claiming that it was supposed to harm the elderly. “But critics warn if young, healthy people abandon federal exchanges, the old and sick, who require better coverage, will pay much more,” CBS Anchor Anthony Mason warned. He and the other networks somehow knew all of that even though, according to him, “it will be months before we see details of the plan.

And on NBC, Reporter Tom Costello pitted the young against the old:

Who wins? Jim and Julie, healthy 20-somethings with no kids who aren’t making a lot of money. A bare-bones insurance policy would be cheaper but come with higher out of pocket expenses. Who loses? David and Gail, a 60-something couple with higher medical expenses. With fewer healthy young people in the insurance pool, everyone else could pay more.

Costello also brought on one critic who claimed the order was like “shuffling of the deck chairs on the Titanic” and people were going to drown. Hyperbolic much?

Even though Mason was the only one to mention that the order “would allow small businesses to buy less-expensive health insurance plans across state lines,” he didn’t talk about how that would benefit people.

<<< Please support MRC’s NewsBusters team with a tax-deductible contribution today. >>>

In an interview on CNN Thursday, Senator Paul explained how the order was “an avenue or an exit for individuals to flee the individual market and get what everybody seems to want which is a good group insurance plan.” He told CNN’s Jake Tapper that the order allowed small businesses to band together to act as a big corporation so they could buy better health insurance with the benefits that they wanted:

Basically, it’s biased for big corporations, what I’m simply trying to say is why don’t we let the little individual, the plumber, the baker, the accountant, the small doctor or attorney, let them join together in associations so they can have the same buying power that the big corporations have.

While the liberal networks railed against the executive order for dismantling Obama’s legacy, they rarely told the truth that Obama’s “signature achievement” included insurance with over 100 percent premium hikes, no choice, and deductibles so large that families can’t afford to go in for a checkup. So “signature achievement” was really a hollow term.

Those would mean lower premiums for people that get those stripped-down plans, but health care experts warn that such plans could offer no coverage for basic services like maternity care, prescription drugs, and even ambulance services.

LESTER HOLT: Now to a new front in the battle over ObamaCare. President Trump beginning to dismantle his predecessor’s signature achievement by unveiling plans today to allow small businesses and individuals to buy insurance that does not meet the minimum ObamaCare requirements. But there are critics who say it will only drive prices up, hurting older Americans or those with medical conditions. NBC’s Tom Costello explains.

[Cuts to video]

TOM COSTELLO: The President’s executive order takes direct aim at ObamaCare’s minimum coverage rules.

DONALD TRUMP: This is going to be something that millions and millions of people will be signing up for, and they’re going to be very happy. This will be great healthcare.

COSTELLO: Mr. Trump directing his administration to allow insurance companies and unregulated associations to sell cheaper policies that offer less coverage than ObamaCare currently requires. Potentially no longer requiring maternity or substance abuse coverage. And insurers could charge groups and businesses with sicker employees more than others.

Who wins? Jim and Julie, healthy 20-somethings with no kids who aren’t making a lot of money. A bare-bones insurance policy would be cheaper but come with higher out of pocket expenses. Who loses? David and Gail, a 60-something couple with higher medical expenses. With fewer healthy young people in the insurance pool, everyone else could pay more.

ROBERT LASZEWSKI: What we’ve got going on here is a shuffling of the deck chairs on the Titanic, I think. It can help some people but at direct cost to others who are left behind.

COSTELLO: Americans could also buy short-term coverage but no pre-existing conditions allowed. Today some small business groups applauded while health care providers generally warn of higher costs.

NANCY PELOSI: I do know it is a sabotage of the Affordable Care Act. And quite frankly, a real disservice to the American people, many of whom voted for him.

[Cuts back to live]

COSTELLO: The Trump plan will take months to implement with legal challenges likely. Lester?

Las Vegas Plot Thickens: Stephen Paddock’s Plane Was Owned By Obama Administration Intelligence Contractor

Mandalay Bay

A few internet sleuths have taken matters into their own hands after the obvious disinformation campaign by the mainstream media surrounding the Las Vegas shooting. Mounting evidence of what looks like a false flag is worrying many. And once you read this, those fears will be shoved into overdrive.

On the surface, the tweet doesn’t say much. But how much can Mike Toke really say in a limited amount of characters? But what he does manage is enough to get anyone seeking the truth to follow all these leads and look into everything that the media and our government continues to hide from us. It’s what’s embedded in the tweet that counts.

  1. Multiple shooters in Vegas: the standard progression in staged attacks

Looking closely, the first thing you will notice is that the shooter, Stephen Paddock, had a pilot license and owned two planes. This is well-established fact. The tail number of one of those planes is N5343M, a Cirrus SR-20. You can see that this was owned by Paddock by going to the website Flightaware.com. But Paddock doesn’t own this plane anymore. It was grounded three years ago, and it’s now in the hands of none other than Volant LLC, which there is little information on.

However, Volant Associates is none other than a Department of Defense contractor. Meaning Paddock’s plane has been in the hands of the United States government for the past three years and grounded since – if Volant LLC is being used as a way to hide information. Considering what Volant Associates does, that wouldn’t be so far fetched.  But the plane’s information is all easily verified here on Flightaware.com. It’s been in Roanoke, Virginia since April 25, 2014.

Volant’s describes it’s mission on their website as providing “the industry’s preeminent professionals to discriminating U.S. government and intelligence-and-defense-industry customers.

The registration of this plane is also listed as “active” even though it hasn’t been flown in three years. Strange enough yet? Well, it gets even better. The FAA should have this same information. But they don’t. Their website shows that a different aircraft, a Cessna 152, maintains that tail number and it was last registered to a person in San Diego, California. The FAA (Federal Aviation Administration) is a government agency, and it appears that it has scrubbed this plane’s information. Now, why would they do that? Well, the plot still thickens.

There is little to be known about Volant LLC., in Roanoke, Virginia. A company big enough to have a plane should have a website, at least that would be the assumption. But a Google search netted very little information other than they provide “business services.” But Volant Associates is a completely different matter. That’s your defense contractor. And their website says they are located in Chantilly, VA, which wouldn’t be too far from Volant LLC. in Roanoke. And a quick Google search of that verifies that the two cities are only 219 miles apart. So is Volant LLC., a cover company for the defense contractor? Is this a coincidence?

For a list of all of the contracts between Volant LLC. and the government, click here. They have worked for the Obama Administration. Could Paddock’s plane have been used in other scandals, such as the Fast and Furious gun running scheme? Who knows, and at this point, we may never know.

What all this means is entirely speculation right now. But isn’t is strange that this information is being kept from the public, and those who seek the truth are stuck finding it on their own?

Remember when Barack Obama and Eric Holder allowed guns to be put in the hands of Mexican drug cartels in order to cause maximum violence?

Image: Remember when Barack Obama and Eric Holder allowed guns to be put in the hands of Mexican drug cartels in order to cause maximum violence?

(Natural News)
As Democrats and Left-wing “progressive” anti-gun activists continue to push for gun bans and other erosions of the Second Amendment following the terrible mass shooting in Las Vegas on Sunday, it is well to remember that, once upon a time, a pair of notable Democrats did their best to ensure that kind of violence occurred as often as possible south of the U.S. border.

Early in President Obama’s tenure, he and Attorney General Eric Holder cooked up a scheme to send thousands of U.S.-based “assault weapons” — that is, semi-automatic rifles which cosmetically resemble real assault weapons — into the hands of Mexican drug cartels. The goal was to ensure the guns led to maximum death and carnage so that the Obama administration could then push for far stricter gun control laws that included complete bans on certain weapons.

The operation was called “Fast and Furious,” and it was run by an agency that answered to Holder Justice Department, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives.

As reported by the New York Post, the operation was a Department of Justice-run program that allowed thousands of rifles including .50-caliber rifles with a range of nearly two miles and powerful enough to take down a helicopter to be sold to the cartels, allegedly so they could be “tracked” back to the illegal drug-running operations.

However, the Post noted, “internal documents later revealed the real goal was to gin up a crisis requiring a crackdown on guns in America. (Related: MISSION IMPOSSIBLE: Official story of Las Vegas shooting unravels; physical impossibility of lone gunman senior citizen makes narrative ludicrous.)

“Fast and Furious was merely a pretext for imposing stricter gun laws,” the Post noted — even if that meant scores of people would have to die in order to achieve the political objective of more gun control.

Talk about sick.

In fact, the guns did cause death, mayhem, and carnage:

…[T]he scheme backfired when Justice agents lost track of the nearly 2,000 guns sold through the program and they started turning up at murder scenes on both sides of the border — including one that claimed the life of U.S. Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry.

While then-Attorney General Eric Holder was focused on politics, people were dying. At least 20 other deaths or violent crimes have been linked to Fast and Furious-trafficked guns.

The plot came to light after Terry’s death in 2010 at the hands of Mexican drug bandits; he was shot in the back with what was essentially an Obama/Holder-supplied rifle. But then, getting caught red-handed in the scandal, “the most transparent administration in history” lied repeatedly to Congress about the program, denying it ever existed. At one point, reported Newsroom American, Obama even extended executive privilege to Holder in regards to documents that were related to Fast and Furious. The site noted further:

[House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Rep. Darrell] Issa [R-Calif.] and his committee have regularly demanded scores of documents from the Justice Department pertaining to the botched operation, in which the BATF allowed straw purchasers to buy guns from the U.S. and supply them to Mexican drug cartels south of the border.

The administration stonewalled on the documents, leading to a contempt of Congress citation for Holder.

However, as the Post noted, in May 2016 — when the Obama administration was gearing up to spy on the presidential campaign of then-GOP candidate Donald J. Trump — a federal court ordered the release of 20,000 pages of emails and memos that had been previously denied Congress and others looking into the scandal. “A preliminary review shows top Obama officials deliberately obstructing congressional probes into the border gun-running operation,” the Post noted.

Bottom line: Obama and Holder purposely created a situation that led to the slaughter of scores of people, including at least one federal agent, for the sole purpose of subverting the Constitution’s Second Amendment.

What disgusting treachery.

Twitter accuses Michelle Obama of pushing 'racist' literature onto children

Former first lady Michelle Obama is facing accusations of pushing “racist” literature onto children by Twitter users after a school librarian rejected a donation of books from first lady Melania Trump and wrote a blog criticizing her literary choices.

Trump got heat Friday after Massachusetts school librarian Liz Phipps Soeiro declined several Dr. Seuss books donated by the first lady, claiming the material was “cliché” and based on “racist propaganda.”

“Open one of his books (‘If I Ran a Zoo’ or ‘And to Think That I Saw It On Mulberry Street,’ for example), and you’ll see the racist mockery in his art,” Soeiro wrote in an open letter to Trump, adding that the books were filled with “racist propaganda, caricatures, and harmful stereotypes.”

Now many online are jumping to Trump’s defense by posting older photos of Michelle Obama reading children excerpts from Dr. Seuss books, arguing that the books weren’t considered “racist” until President Trump was sworn into office.

Dr. Seuss ok when Michelle Obama read it to children but now has racist undertones when our First Lady donates books? Unreal,” one user wrote, while another posted: “Amazing… the same books Michelle Obama read to children, are now racist books because Trump is President.”

See more Twitter reactions below:

Later on Friday, the first lady fired back at the librarian who rejected her donation, with her director of communications calling Soeiro’s response “unfortunate,” according to FOX News

“She has demonstrated this in both actions and words since her husband took office, and sending books to children across the country is but one example,” Trump’s spokeswoman told the outlet. “To turn the gesture of sending young students some books into something divisive is unfortunate, but the First Lady remains committed to her efforts on behalf of children everywhere.”

Joy Reid Wrongly Claims More Anti-Obama Threats, Lauded as ‘Great Intellectual’

Appearing as a guest on Friday’s All In with Chris Hayes, far-left MSNBC host Joy Reid was spreading misinformation to viewers as she claimed that President Barack Obama “had more threats against him than any President” even though the claim was discredited years ago. And, on her own show on Saturday’s AM Joy, liberal guest Frank Schaeffer laughably lauded her as a “great public intellectual.”

On Friday’s All In show, during a discussion of the travel habits of Trump administration officials and the cost to taxpayers, after Hayes brought up the issue of security costs, Reid inserted the debunked myth into the conversation:

I mean, don’t forget, we just got finished having the first black President of the United States, who had more threats against him than any President — than any of his predecessors, And, look, this is an administration that, at the same time, they’re jet-setting around the country on luxury planes, is also plotting to cut their own taxes by billions and billions of dollars. It starts to look like the monopoly men are laughing at the Republican base. The only question is whether the Republican base can see them laughing.

On Saturday’s AM Joy, as the group discussed Alabama Republican Senate nominee Roy Moore, guest Schaeffer — known for being a critic of the religious right which his father was a part of — derided Judge Moore as behaving like a “fascist.” Schaeffer: “When you see Judge Moore pull out a gun at a public rally, that is a threat. This is the act of a fascist — this is not American — people don’t do this.”

He then took a moment to lavishly bestow praise on fellow liberal guest, the Reverend William Barber, and host Reid, as he added:

I just say that being on with Reverend Barber, who I last saw at a progressive Christian meeting that he and I were at together, is a great honor today. I consider him America’s first public intellectual and the most moral voice we have — that said — and by the way, Joy, I feel the same about you. It’s a great honor to always be with you. You are a great public intellectual with a tremendous stand.

A bit later, he claimed that Republicans are being more open about being “racist” and “white supremacist,” whereas in the past, Republicans like Jack Kemp and the Bushes had “pretended” not to be:

The cat is out of the bag. We are now into a new era where the people who are holding these views — anti-gay, homophobic, racist, white supremacist — they aren’t even pretending anymore to be mainstream. Look, the old Republican oligarchs back in my day like Jack Kemp and the Bush family we knew personally — they at least pretended — they didn’t go on national television or tweet in the morning..

He soon intoned: “I just want to say — as someone who helped build the religious right as the nepotistic sidekick of my father back in the ’80s — what we started has now gone beyond the wildest dreams of anybody who was involved with that.”

Also of note, a few days ago on the Thursday, September 28, The Last Word with Lawrence O’Donnell, Reid delivered more over the top liberal analysis as she claimed that Republicans want to “reinstitute feudalism” with their tax plan, and that, as NFL players want to protest against police officers “killing blacks with Impunity,” some Trump voters want to see black athletes stand and play sports “because I say so” as she went into an emotional rant.
