More muzak for bobkat with the lips that never smile...

When you think of the Republican Party, what comes to mind? Abolishing slavery? Ending segregation and other Jim Crow laws? Giving women the franchise? If you’re like many Americans, none of these landmark accomplishments came to mind. Instead, you may associate the GOP with racism, sexism, and general inequality. It’s an easy narrative for left-leaning media and academia to push, but the reality isn’t quite so convenient. Former Vanderbilt Professor of Political Science Carol Swain explains that the Republican Party was actually the party responsible for nearly every advancement for minorities and women in the history of the United States – and remains the champion of their equality to this day.

Better sources?? That was just one and I never heard of the bum... Go shag, again ...

I know that 'sourcing' is only one of your party talking points, but you seem to be stalled on this one too...
Go read the dozens of references to crooked hillary's crooked brother...

Do you have any idea why Trump is so popular??
I think that the main one is that he uses the saul alinski style in reverse and you have no answers for that type of a thread...

Dershowitz on DNC Vote: Ellison's Defeat Is Win in 'War Against Bigotry'

One of the leading figures in the Democratic Party is taking heat on social media for proudly touting the violent far-left group Antifa.

Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Minn.), who serves as DNC deputy chair, tweeted a picture to promote a book called "Antifa: The Anti-Fascist Handbook."

Very Interesting Perspective

Understanding Trump

Marshall Kamena is a registered democrat and was elected mayor of Livermore, CA. He ran on the Democratic ticket as he knew a Bay Area city would never vote for a republican. He is as conservative as they come and am happy to call him a friend.

He wrote the following and it is an excellent read:

On Trump's Lack of Decorum, Dignity, and Statesmanship

My Leftist friends (as well as many ardent #NeverTrumpers) constantly ask me if I’m not bothered by Donald Trump’s lack of decorum. They ask if I don’t think his tweets are “beneath the dignity of the office.”

Here’s my answer:

We Right-thinking people have tried dignity. There could not have been a man of more quiet dignity than George W. Bush as he suffered the outrageous lies and politically motivated hatreds that undermined his presidency

We tried statesmanship. Could there be another human being on this earth who so desperately prized “collegiality” as John McCain?

We tried propriety – has there been a nicer human being ever than Mitt Romney?

And the results were always the same. This is because, while we were playing by the rules of dignity, collegiality and propriety, the Left has been, for the past 60 years, engaged in a knife fight where the only rules are those of Saul Alinsky and the Chicago mob.

I don’t find anything “dignified,” “collegial” or “proper” about Barack Obama’s lying about what went down on the streets of Ferguson in order to ramp up racial hatreds because racial hatreds serve the Democratic Party. I don’t see anything “dignified” in lying about the deaths of four Americans in Benghazi and imprisoning an innocent filmmaker to cover your tracks. I don’t see anything “statesman-like” in weaponizing the IRS to be used to destroy your political opponents and any dissent. Yes, Obama was “articulate” and “polished” but in no way was he in the least bit “dignified,” “collegial” or “proper.”

The Left has been engaged in a war against America since the rise of the Children of the ‘60s. To them, it has been an all-out war where nothing is held sacred and nothing is seen as beyond the pale. It has been a war they’ve fought with violence, the threat of violence, demagoguery and lies from day one – the violent take-over of the universities – until today.

The problem is that, through these years, the Left has been the only side fighting this war. While the Left has been taking a knife to anyone who stands in their way, the Right has continued to act with dignity, collegiality and propriety. With Donald Trump, this all has come to an end. Donald Trump is America ’s first wartime president in the Culture War.

During wartime, things like “dignity” and “collegiality” simply aren’t the most essential qualities one looks for in their warriors. Ulysses Grant was a drunk whose behavior in peacetime might well have seen him drummed out of the Army for conduct unbecoming. Had Abraham Lincoln applied the peacetime rules of propriety and booted Grant, the Democrats might well still be holding their slaves today. Lincoln rightly recognized that, “I cannot spare this man. He fights.”

General George Patton was a vulgar-talking, son-of-a-bitch. In peacetime, this might have seen him stripped of rank. But, had Franklin Roosevelt applied the normal rules of decorum then, Hitler and the Socialists would barely be five decades into their thousand-year Reich.

Trump is fighting. And what’s particularly delicious is that, like Patton standing over the battlefield as his tanks obliterated Rommel’s, he’s shouting, “You magnificent bastards, I read your book!”

That is just the icing on the cake, but it’s wonderful to see that not only is Trump fighting,he’s defeating the Left using their own tactics. That book is Saul Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals – a book so essential to the Liberals’ war against America that it is and was the playbook for the entire Obama administration andthe subject of Hillary Clinton’s senior thesis. It is a book of such pure evil, that, just as the rest of us would dedicate our book to those we most love or those to whom we are most indebted, Alinsky dedicated his book to Lucifer.

Trump’s tweets may seem rash and unconsidered but, in reality, he is doing exactly what Alinsky suggested his followers do. First, instead of going after “the fake media” — and they are so fake that they have literally gotten every single significant story of the past 60 years not just wrong, but diametrically opposed to the truth, from the Tet Offensive to Benghazi, to what really happened on the streets of Ferguson, Missouri — Trump isolated CNN. He made it personal.

Then, just as Alinsky suggests, he employs ridicule which Alinsky described as “the most powerful weapon of all.” ... Most importantly, Trump’s tweets have put CNN in an untenable and unwinnable position. ... They need to respond. This leaves them with only two choices. They can either “go high” (as Michelle would would say and Hillary disingenuously declare of herself and the fake news would disingenuously report as the truth) and begin to honestly and accurately report the news or they can double-down on their usual tactics and hope to defeat Trump with twice their usual hysteria and demagoguery. The problem for CNN (et al.) with the former is that, if they were to start honestly reporting the news, that would be the end of the Democratic Party they serve.

It is nothing but the incessant use of fake news (read: propaganda) that keeps the Left alive. Imagine, for example, if CNN had honestly and accurately reported then-candidate Barack Obama’s close ties to foreign terrorists (Rashid Khalidi), domestic terrorists (William Ayers), the mafia (Tony Rezko) or the true evils of his spiritual mentor, Jeremiah Wright’s church. Imagine if they had honestly and accurately conveyed the evils of the Obama administration’s weaponizing of the IRS to be used against their political opponents or his running of guns to the Mexican cartels or the truth about the murder of Ambassador Christopher Stevens and the Obama administration’s cover-up.

So, to my friends on the Left — and the #NeverTrumpers as well — do I wish we lived in a time when our president could be “collegial” and “dignified” and “proper”? Of course I do. These aren’t those times. This is war. And it’s a war that the Left has been fighting without opposition for the past 50 years. So, say anything you want about this president - I get it - he can be vulgar, he can be crude, he can be undignified at times. I don’t care. I can’t spare this man. He fights for America!

This is the best explanation of Trump I have ever read. It clearly explains his appeal to his base and why so many Anti-Trumpers are so angry and confused about what to do with him. People call him stupid, ignorant, a disgrace and worse. They are so consumed with hate and their own disappointment that they cannot see the brilliance of his methods. This writer explains what Trump is doing in a way even Trump haters cannot deny. The Donald is merely holding up a mirror to progressives and giving them back the full "Saul Alinsky" treatment that they have used for years. They can't stand it and Alinsky left them no instructions on how to counter his own Rules For Radicals. They are helpless when face with their own attacks. Enjoy this illuminating essay and share it with your friends. And to a liberal I defy you to show me where it is wrong.

The Coastal Advisory Commission was appointed by the bos way back in 2015. They have met pretty regularly on a monthly basis since that time. Their agenda and minutes are available on the town's website. It was established to "advise the Town on sea level rise adaptation strategies that include protection, accommodation or retreat so as to enable sustainable living in our community".
I'm not quite sure how, when, or where it morphed into the beach management plan document that WHG has now presented.
