Police Arrest Teen Accused of Helping GOP Strategist’s Underage Sex Trafficking

QUOTE
Law enforcement in Florida has arrested Gisela Castro Medina, a 19-year-old accused of helping a wealthy, young Republican strategist in Minnesota prey on girls and recruit them for paid sex.

She faces the same criminal charges as her alleged pal, GOP operative Anton La--aro: sex trafficking of a minor, attempt to commit sex trafficking, and obstruction of justice.

QUOTE
La--aro, an occasional Fox News guest who flaunted his wealthy lifestyle on social media, was indicted on five counts of sex trafficking of a minor, one count of attempting to do so, and three counts of obstruction of justice. The FBI confirmed its agents had arrested La--aro in Minneapolis this morning. And the indictment was unsealed in federal court Thursday afternoon during his initial appearance in federal court in St. Paul, Minnesota, which took place over a video conference.

Politics / Black Agenda Report's Glen Ford is Dead at 71

REST IN POWER, Brother Glen Ford of Black Agenda Report!!



QUOTE
Glen Ford, a veteran broadcast, print and digital journalist who hosted the first nationally syndicated Black news interview program on TV before going on to found the Black Agenda Report website, has died, according to reports. He was 71 years old.
[...]
To call Ford a career journalist is a vast understatement. According to his bio on the Black Agenda Report website, Ford was reporting the news live on the radio as early as 11-years-old and went on to enjoy a career in journalism for more than 40 years that included working as a Washington bureau chief as well as a correspondent covering the White House, Capitol Hill and State Department.

After getting his start in news radio in Augusta, Georgia, Ford honed his skills at other local news stations and eventually created the “Black World Report,” a syndicated half-hour weekly news magazine that paved the way for the Black Agenda Report to be founded. Years later, in 1977, Ford helped launch, produce and host “America’s Black Forum,” the first nationally syndicated Black news interview program on commercial television.

I Once Overlooked HBCUs. Hannah-Jones’ Decision Reminded Me of Their Power.

Lots of love for HBCUs in here.
And lessons for all, but especially for FOUR of our fellow posters.


QUOTE

...My understanding that HBCUs weren’t as good as predominantly white institutions was part and parcel of a broader indoctrination, one that few of us escape, regardless of race. My indoctrination meant no matter the depth of my academic success, I doubted myself because that success was accomplished at a nearly all-Black segregated high school in a rural part of South Carolina. In my muddled mind, academic excellence could only be attained in the presence of white people, could only be achieved if acknowledged by them...
[...]
Even now at the age of 48, I have to fight off a soft voice in my head telling me Black people really aren’t the equal of white people, that racial disparities mean there is something wrong with us rather than what we’ve been born into.

That’s after proving my worth as a Black student at an elite, mostly-white liberal arts college—the same college where I now teach. That’s after being paid to spend a year at Harvard University, after writing a few books, being published in several dozen top outlets. That’s after raising two beautiful Black kids and being married to a beautiful Black woman for nearly 23 years.
]...]
I didn’t even learn of the term critical race theory until I was an adult watching my wife study for her doctorate in literacy and learning. I didn’t know I needed something like it to help me grapple with thoughts of racial inferiority rooted in a slate of racial disparities too often written off as individual failure rather than evidence of systemic problems and a legacy that has roots in the founding of a country that once embraced race-based chattel slavery...

The Republican Party's gothic contempt turns politics on its head

QUOTE

...Again, the Republicans do not have policy objectives requiring bipartisan support. They don't need, nor seem to want, to persuade a majority of Americans to come around to their side. They can therefore indulge in gothic politics so that up is down, left is right, wrong is right and the Democratic Party is always this close to Nazism....

If they break it, they should face the music.

A former Fox exec blasted the network for peddling Trump's election-fraud claims and airing anti-mask comments...

QUOTE
In an op-ed published Sunday by The Daily Beast, Preston Padden, who served as president of network distribution at the Fox Broadcasting Company for seven years, wrote that Fox News is a TV channel "that no reasonable person would believe."

Padden wrote that Fox News had perpetuated former President Donald Trump's "wild and false claims" that the 2020 election was stolen from him and that Fox's decision to question masks had contributed to "the unnecessary deaths of many Americans" during the COVID-19 pandemic.

And, CLEARLY, #3TimeLoser45 bears responsibility for hundreds of thousands of deaths in the USA.

His recorded call with Woodward demonstrates he knew how serious COVID was - from almost the beginning, but...

He panicked and punked out because he knew a bunch of his supporters were/are anti-vaxxers.  He thereby undermined his own positive efforts to speed up vaccine development.

Took his own vaccine shot in secret for the same reason.  Rather than serve as an example to his supporters and help save their lives, he chose to suck up to the very small minority who question science, hate and threaten Fauci and believe in unfounded conspiracies.

He's a despicable and dangerous excuse for a human being.

Trump has cut off Rudy Giuliani, and is annoyed that he asked to be paid for his work on challenging the election, book says

QUOTE
...reports have detailed how Giuliani and his allies have sought to get paid for the legal work, but to no avail, falling foul of the president in the process.

"Trump is annoyed that he [Giuliani] tried to get paid for his election challenge work," Wolff wrote, per The Times.

"Giuliani, now beset by crushing investigations and potentially millions of dollars in legal costs, has publicly implored the Trump family and aides ... to have the Trump campaign, with its great wealth, indemnify him - and has gotten only the cold shoulder."

Trump's family has "cast out, cut off" Giuliani,...

Former Trump attorney who vowed to 'release the Kraken' facing sanction hearing in Detroit

Frank Witsil, Detroit Free Press
Mon, June 21, 2021, 2:24 PM
DETROIT – Attorneys who made false claims in court filings after the 2020 general election to reverse election results to favor former President Donald Trump have been summoned to appear in Detroit for a sanctions hearing.

Federal judge Linda Parker ordered Sidney Powell and other attorneys who had represented Trump in an election results dispute last year to appear in court at 2 p.m. July 6.

Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel has asked the court to sanction Powell, a Texas lawyer, along with Michigan attorneys Greg Rohl, Scott Hagerstrom and Stefanie Junttila, for pursuing a case that sought to overturn state election results based on lies.
