duke trumpAnother major voice has spoken out against the US Senate candidacy of David Duke--that is, the National Republican Senatorial Committee.

In an email today, NRSC Executive Director Ward Baker made the following statement on the Louisiana Senate race:


"Louisiana voters will be able to choose from several Republican Senate candidates who will have a great impact on the Bayou State and the future of our country. David Duke is not one of them. He will not have the support of the NRSC under any circumstance."

Shortly before, the Louisiana Republican Party Chairman, Roger Villere also denounced the candidacy.

Duke announced today that he would be running for US Senate. One question unanswered at yet is whether Donald Trump, who has received the overwhelming support of David Duke will do the same.  Trump has just become the presidential nominee of the Republican Party.

Duke has publicly said that whites would be committing treason if they did not support Trump.  Also, Trump has been receiving substantial support online from .alt group posters.

In the past, Trump has not stridently disassociated himself from Duke and in fact has tweeted out a number of images that have originated from hate groups and possible Duke supporters--including the recent tweet that associated Hillary Clinton with a yellow Jewish star and a pile of money.

Trump denounced that association with the Star of David and amazingly said, the Sheriff's star also had six points.

However, the Sheriff's star has circles around each point.

mass2On July 4, 1778, George Washington doubled liquor rations for the soldiers quartered in Princeton, NJ, as a way to celebrate Independence Day. It’s fitting, therefore, that the Fourth of July is America's top-selling beer holiday, according to the Beer Institute. It estimated, in 2013, that sales of beer on the 4th could total $1 billion, doubtlessly higher today. “In moderation,” claims a CA brewery investor, Grover McKean, “beer is tasty and healthy.” Who could disagree?

joe mikaAs Donald Trump faces the top world leaders this week, including a face-time with Vladimir Putin, and as his healthcare proposals face an uphill climb, his poll numbers for how the nation views him could be better.

According to a morning Consult/Politico poll released Wednesday morning, his tweets, including that against MSNBC's Mika Brzezinski, and his personality are not helping him, at all.

indy dayII know the calendar says we are approaching the 4th of July, but, it just doesn’t feel like Independence Day.

Perhaps it should.  It’s hot as heck.  The airlines have been packed. The hot dogs are ready for grilling.  The umps are saying, "play ball". The patriotic activities are scheduled. The fireworks are ready-for-blasting. 

Yet, it just doesn’t feel like independence day.

bill rights2To President Thomas Jefferson, July 4th celebrated more than the signing of the Declaration of Independence. He thought it was a link to the future. The message prominent colonists sent to King George III led to the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, the initial and most prominent feature of which is the First Amendment that guarantees free speech. It’s part of the country’s fundamental essence that each man and woman can say what they feel about government, or anything else, proving President Donald Trump needs some civics lessons.
