President Trump on Wednesday lashed out at New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio (D) for moving ahead with plans to paint "Black Lives Matter" along Fifth Avenue in Manhattan, calling the mural a "symbol of hate."
Trump also criticized city officials for agreeing to shift roughly $1 billion from the police department as part of its budget for the coming year. He complained that the financial cuts, paired with plans to paint the mural along Fifth Avenue, were an affront to law enforcement.
"NYC is cutting Police $'s by ONE BILLION DOLLARS, and yet the @NYCMayor is going to paint a big, expensive yellow Black Lives Matter sign on Fifth Avenue, denigrating this luxury avenue," Trump tweeted.
Cities nationwide have painted "Black Lives Matter" in prominent locations in recent weeks in a show of support for protesters who have called for systemic changes to address racial injustice and police brutality. The phrase was painted in Washington, D.C., on 16th Street NW leading up to the White House, and part of the road was renamed "Black Lives Matter Plaza."
Public polling shows that most Americans support the protests that have happened over the last month. A CBS News poll released Sunday found that 60 percent of those surveyed agree with the idea of the Black Lives Matter movement, and 53 percent of them support people protesting the treatment of Black Americans by police.

McGrath wins Kentucky Senate primary
The former Marine fighter pilot dispatched Democratic opponent Charles Booker and will face Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell in November.
Amy McGrath has fended off Charles Booker to clinch the Democratic nomination for Senate in Kentucky, setting up an expensive showdown with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell in November.
Booker, who was down in the polls and way behind in fundraising in the months leading up to last week’s primary, surged in the final weeks, fueled by national and local progressive endorsements and the protests against racial injustice in his hometown of Louisville.
But McGrath, a former Marine fighter pilot making her second run for federal office, prevailed — mostly on the strength of the absentee ballots cast in the weeks leading up to the primary that were tallied on Tuesday.

apparently you and your alter-ego aren't sharp enough to discern thugs killing people and the POLICE killing people unjustifiably.
Stop using ‘black-on-black’ crime to deflect away from police brutality
When an opponent of Black Lives Matters talks about “blacks killing blacks” it’s almost always to deflect attention away from police brutality. As if one issue makes the other more acceptable.
When someone commits an act of terrorism against in the United States, which rightfully leads to anger and sadness, no one asks, “Well what about how many Americans kill other Americans each year?” Because that would crazy, now wouldn’t it?
But, by all means, let’s talk about “black on black crime.” You’ve probably heard a statistic like this before – The majority of black people murdered are killed by other black people. That’s true, but also misleading. The overwhelming majority of white murder victims each year are killed by white assailants. So, when’s the last time you heard the term “white on white crime?”
According to the Bureau for Justice Statistics, People living in households with income below the federal poverty threshold are twice as likely to commit a violent crime than people in high-income households, regardless of race.
We live in a country where the poverty rate is more than twice as high among black Americans than white. And that has as much to do with 400 years of systematic racism than anything else.
None of this necessarily means a black person being killed by another black person is more or less significant than if they were killed by a police officer. Death is death and murder is murder.
Yet, what if it were captured on video? Could a victim’s family take solace in knowing evidence exists for that person to be prosecuted? That’s usually the case. But that may not matter for George Floyd. It certainly didn’t matter in the cases of Eric Garner or Tamir Rice.
What is someone supposed to do when you can be murdered legally? When police can harass you and then choke you out because you’re selling loose cigarettes or when a cop can kneel on your neck as you cry out “I can’t breathe" while his colleagues stand by and watch.
That’s why police brutality is its own unique horror. And African Americans are two and half times more likely than whites to be killed by law enforcement.
When you step outside every day knowing you’re twice as likely to be killed by someone sworn to protect you just because of the color of your skin, you’re dealing with a different type of fear. Don’t let statistics, ignorance or flat out racism cloud that.

Top conservatives demand answers on reports Russia paid Taliban to kill US troops
Lawmakers want the White House to explain what it knew about reports of Putin bounties on US troops
One of the top Republican lawmakers in the House joined on Sunday a growing list of legislators calling on the Trump administration to explain what it knew about the reports that Russian intelligence agents offered to pay bounties to Afghan militants who killed U.S. troops in the country.
House Republican Conference Chairwoman Liz Cheney of Wyoming tweeted Sunday morning that if the reports in the New York Times about the bounties were true, then the White House needed to explain what it knew about the intelligence and how it responded.
"If reporting about Russian bounties on US forces is true, the White House must explain: 1. Why weren’t the president or vice president briefed?" Cheney tweeted. "Was the info in the PDB? 2. Who did know and when? 3. What has been done in response to protect our forces & hold Putin accountable?"
General Discussion Forum / New US cases hit single-day record; Texas, Florida are closing bars amid surge« on: June 26, 2020, 01:04:27 PM »
As the U.S. hits a new record for daily coronavirus cases, the governors of Texas and Florida hit pause on their reopening plans, with both states effectively closing bars to limit the spread of coronavirus.
Coronavirus cases are trending upward in about half of U.S. states, and several have reported record-breaking daily new case counts this week, according to Johns Hopkins University. The U.S. reported 39,972 daily cases of the coronavirus on Thursday, a new daily record, according to Johns Hopkins.
I just saw this Brother on FOX News.
Ja'Ron K. Smith (born July 29, 1982) is an American political advisor. He has been an Assistant to the President for domestic policy since April 2019. Smith had previously served as an advisor on Director of Urban Affairs and Revitalization from the beginning of the Trump administration in January 2017
Of course, there are still four months to go until Election Day, but the fact that Biden has such a sizable lead — already bigger than Hillary Clinton’s largest lead over Trump, which peaked at 7.5 points in 2016 — is notable. Heck, even Barack Obama never led by more than 8 points in our 2008 national average, and that wound up being a blowout.

The Note: Bad polls for Trump worry … Democrats
"Ignore the polls, register to vote" Biden tweeted.
President Donald Trump doesn't like -- and says he doesn't believe -- the polls these days.
Neither do Democrats.
Spreadsheets' worth of new polling confirm perceptions that Trump is more vulnerable than ever, in part due to his handling of the COVID-19 pandemic. It leaves former Vice President Joe Biden positioned for potential landslide territory, sparking debates over whether Democrats should try to win "reach" states and focus down the ballot.
"We can't be complacent or smug or sense that somehow it's so obvious that this president hasn't done a good job, because look, he won once," former President Barack Obama said in his fundraising livestream with Biden on Tuesday. "Whatever you've done so far is not enough."
Biden himself was more succinct in responding to the Times/Siena numbers.
"Ignore the polls," Biden tweeted. "Register to vote."
