    A decision in a deep south state with a Republican governor didn't go Trump's way.

    Mississippi Lawmakers Vote To Remove Confederate Emblem From State Flag

    excerpt:

    "Lawmakers in Mississippi voted to remove the Confederate battle emblem from the state flag on Sunday, clearing the way for Republican Gov. Tate Reeves to sign the measure into law.

    The state House and Senate both approved legislation to remove the 126-year-old current flag and to form a commission to redesign it.

    "Today we and the rest of the nation can look on our state with new eyes, with pride and hope," House Speaker Philip Gunn said following the House vote, according to the Mississippi Clarion-Ledger.

    Sunday's passage was expected following a procedural vote on Saturday.

    The bill now goes to the governor, who has said he would sign the legislation but has not immediately set a date for the signing."

    Remark by Gov. Reeves of Mississippi:


    Mississippi Lawmakers Vote To Remove Confederate Emblem From State Flag

    excerpt:

    "We should not be under any illusion that a vote in the Capitol is the end of what must be done — the job before us is to bring the state together and I intend to work night and day to do it," Reeves wrote on Facebook on Saturday.

    "It will be harder than recovering from tornadoes, harder than historic floods, harder than agency corruption, or prison riots or the coming hurricane season — even harder than battling the Coronavirus."

    ...and battling Trump who threw gasoline on the fire which exacerbated those strifes.

    To clarify my "Yes..."

    It wouldn't have to be a "race war", but that might be his easiest option. (The man is inherently lazy, so easy is his go to option)

    If he can get enough people killing each other in the streets over the current political divide, then he can proclaim Martial Law and cancel the election. His "2nd Amendment Guys" are already locked and loaded, shooting "libruls" for sport has been discussed on the "militia" forums for years. The GOP is backing Trump no matter what he does and have been fantasizing about a complete republican controlled country, with any opposition party being eliminated, for quite some time. The Military might be politicized enough to target "leftists" only at this point as well...

    In the mind of a sick, devious business man like Trump I'm sure he is considering a "King for life" status as looking pretty good to him right now... His base would love it.

    Right out of Steve Bannon's playbook.
    The problem for trump, and bannon, is that I think more whites would join with the minorities than they would with the whiteys

    Another dog-chasing-tail antic of Trump.

    Trump said he would be in DC on the weekend to try to stop unrest but instead was on his golf course.

    Concerned that the white power tweet might incite more unrest and make him look bad, Trump administration officials were unable to quickly make Trump delete the tweet because he was at his golf course instead of DC to deal with unrest.


    Officials couldn't reach Trump on golf course to delete retweet of video showing man chanting 'white power': report

    No, I am just saying that the liberals might not be the pushover that the rednecks think they would be.

    Great, so if we were being attacked, he couldn't be reached. wtf.

    People here think V Putin has video tapes on Trump, enough to acquire control.

    Obviously, there could never be a race war here in America despite what Charles Manson attempted to initiate back in 1969 or what Donald Trump
    thinks could happen today

    Balbus was referring to the infamous Pee Pee Tapes presumably hidden in a vault deep within the bowels of the Kremlin
    under the ever watchful eyes of Vladimir Putin ...lol...

    I forget now. Was trump peeing on the hookers, or were they peeing on him? If he was peeing on them, he should have drank some cranberry juice to control his bladder malfunction.

    This is really serious, and shouldn't get lost in the headline grabber about retweeting a racist comment (which is serious enough). The President should NEVER be unable to be reached. He couldn't be reached for three hours! Why couldn't he be reached? Because he was playing golf and turned off his cellphone. This from the President who says he wasn't briefed about the Russian bounty for killing Americans in Afghanistan. Is the President out of touch? If so, is that deliberate on his part? Putin. are you listening?

    The COVID-19 death toll in the U.S. is nearing 130,000, consistent with the prediction made weeks ago for early July by the CDC.

    The virus is not embers and ashes no matter how much Trump tries to bluff the public.



    Fauci Says U.S. Could See 100,000 New Cases a Day If No Change

    Fauci Says U.S. Could See 100,000 New Cases a Day If No Change

    excerpt:

    "Fauci and other witnesses cited indoor gatherings as a major cause of recent spikes, singling out bars in particular. On Monday, Arizona paused operations at bars, gyms and movie theaters. Florida and Texas took steps to rein in bars on Friday, with Florida banning consumption of alcohol in bars and Texas closing them altogether. New York, New Jersey and Connecticut, former hot spots earlier in the pandemic, added 16 states to their self-quarantine orders for visitors.

    Rising Hospitalizations

    Robert Redfield, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, noted that in addition to the rise in new cases, hospitalizations are up in 12 states. The U.S. has recorded more than 2.6 million Covid-19 cases in total, with more than 126,000 deaths from the virus, according to data compiled by Johns Hopkins University."
