This is beginning to look like a trend.

So is this:

Sam Brownback, the U.S. Ambassador for International Religious Freedom, complained to the British ambassador in Washington D.C. about the treatment of an English right-wing activist who is in jail for disrupting a trial, according to three sources familiar with the discussion.

Brownback raised the case of the activist known as Tommy Robinson in a June meeting with Sir Kim Darroch, Britain’s Ambassador to the United States, according to a British official and two sources close to the organizers of a pro-Robinson demonstration planned for London on Saturday.

Robinson, whose real name is Stephen Yaxley-Lennon, though he also uses other aliases, is a founder of the English Defense League, which has organized violent demonstrations against Islamic immigrants in the UK in the past decade. More recently, Robinson has branded himself a journalist and campaigner against Islamic extremism, a move that won him contacts with American anti-Muslim activists.

Robinson was arrested in late May outside a courthouse in Leeds, England, while making video recordings about a trial related to child molestation and jailed for 13 months for violating English law limiting publicity during criminal trials.

Brownback raised the jailing of Robinson during a meeting with Darroch that covered a range of “religious freedom issues”, the British official confirmed earlier this week.

Brownback told Darroch that if Britain did not treat Robinson more sympathetically, the Trump administration might be compelled to criticize Britain’s handling of the case, according to the two sources in contact with organizers of the planned pro-Robinson demonstration.

So, this state visit is going well  :lulz:

Undermine May at every chance, recommend the hardest possible brexit, probably wants the UK to leave the WTO, says he supports may but that boris would be a better pm, insult ireland as a passing afterthought not realising were not part of the UK.

On the plus side i hope this runs counter to any future of a boris pm. The tories play an elitist game that trump ignored the rules of.

So far its been less offensive than I thought it would be.

Then completely deny the interview he did with The Sun where he said a trade deal would be almost impossible with the current Brexit plans, despite it being on tape, call it "Fake News", then turn around today and say that a trade deal is totes possible.

Also inadvertantely troll the Leave camp by making them insist that accepting US trade rules is an expression of sovereignty, but accepting EU trade rules is not.

Also also have the Secret Service buzz around London in V-22 Osprey's, creating a shit ton of noise.

TFA was meh.

TLJ was actually good, though fuck me if it took some time to get there.  The showdown between Kylo Ren and Luke Skywalker was worth the price of admission.

By naming it the "Unmasking Antifa" bill, this pure virtue signalling from legislators.

If they had wanted it to pass with bipartisan support, they'd have named it something else, then used it to go after antifa and black bloc groups.  This is just base pandering, perhaps with a mix of trialing "anti-Antifa" sentiment for the 2018 elections.

It's not just progressives: The moderate Democratic incumbent who lost to Ocasio-Ortez has decided not to take his name off the general election ballot.

From what I gather, he can't.  He claims he is not running, but that unless he dies, is convicted of a few specific crimes, or is elected to a different position, the petition that got him on the ballot keeps him on the ballot.

I don't know if that's true or not.

The party whose ballot he is on have released a statement saying they wanted to have Ocasio-Ortez on the ballot, but because of some arcane election law, to do so the incumbent has to change his address to somewhere out of state...which given his family live out of state, should not pose a major problem.

Totally forseeable, but since it won't happen to white Americans, the GOP, and a sizeable amount of the Democrats, won't give a shit.

The ACLU also says that only 38 children will be reunited with their families in time for the deadline set by Trump's executive order.  Questionable whether that's due to incompetence or deliberate foot-dragging, but it's probably a little bit of both.  And lets recall, this an executive order, so a future President (or Trump in a fit of dementia) could easily rescind it without Congressional oversight.

Unless a black person does it of course, in which case they are a Communist.  Which is bad.

There's a flowchart somewhere for all this, I swear...

At his Montana rally last week, Comrade Spanky said, "Democrats want anarchy, they really do, and they don't know who they're playing with, folks."

Here’s a link, for anyone in doubt:

So, if the Democrats are anarchists, what exactly are the anti-government cattle ranchers who were convicted of committing arson on federal land, a wildlife refuge no less?

Patriots, of course.

Didn't they also fire shots at firefighters?

I believe so.  It also wasn't just a single incident, they had persistently been doing this for years, and the 5 year sentence they were handed down was part of a plea bargain.

Well how else are you going to signal to the militia crowd that their crimes will be forgiven?

Gonna be hard to get paramilitaries on board if they're worried about the law.

I believe the 1922 Committee, who said last night they had enough votes for a leadership contest, was urging Boris to step down.

Are the 1922 Committee stupid enough to launch a hard Brexit coup agains Theresa May?  Maybe....I wouldn't put it past them.

Can I create a pention to ban time travllers from our forums.

Something about having to prep ourselfs from time travelers who will use our own history books against us



James Patrick was sounding that alarm bell well before the Guardian got its teeth into the investigation and Aaron Banks' Russia links.

So, David Davis (Brexit Minister) has resigned, a woman has died from Novichok poisoning, and the Donald is coming here in 4 days time.

Also I'm on holiday in 2 days, and since the heat wave is showing no signs of giving up, I'll definitely be booking myself into a nice hotel somewhere.  A/C, a bar, quiet...that's all I need.
