    Don't Say Gay is a political tool designed to GOTV for Republicans. John Stoehr/The Editorial Board: She reviewed it 35 years ago but didn’t realize it was foundational to white nationalists. Here’s how she understands the book now Fern Schumer Chapman (and Jane Elliott) on The Birth Dearth “Immigration” isn’t about immigration. “Abortion” isn’t about abortion. “Critical race theory” isn’t about CRT. Instead, they’re proxies for the fact that many white people “value whiteness more than democracy.” Republican issues are usually about something else – and that something else is almost certainly rooted in white anxiety and fear of a republic slipping out of the control of white people, especially men. In the video clip, Elliott talks about a book that explains all this. Written by Ben Wattenberg in 1987, it’s called The Birth Dearth: What Happens When People in Free Countries Don’t Have Enough Babies? (The author died in 2015.) I wanted to know more about the book. xWell, I see the logic. Tractors have had way more success in the war than Russian tanks so far. https://t.co/JD1Xwww0f9— Aric Toler...
    A Russian TV host called for “regime change” in the U.S., and also for former President Donald Trump to be reinstated. The host, Evgeny Popov, went as far as to refer to Trump as a “partner” to the Russian people. Saturday, while speaking in Warsaw, Poland, President Joe Biden uttered words about Vladimir Putin which required a clarification from the White House. Biden at first stated Putin is a “dictator bent on rebuilding an empire” as his forces continue to attack Ukrainian civilians. “We will have a different future — a brighter future rooted in democracy and principle, hope and light, of decency and dignity, of freedom and possibilities,” he said. He then veered off the script and added: “For God’s sake, this man can not remain in power.” “For god’s sake this man can not remain in power!” After denying NATO enlargement has anything to do with destabilizing Russia, Biden closes his Poland address with a stentorian demand for regime change in Moscow.

    White House communications director Kate Bedingfield said that the press office has no way of controlling what comes out of President Biden's mouth, prompting their efforts to backtrack after he said that Vladimir Putin 'cannot remain in power.'   The president alarmed allies and partners on Saturday when he said at the end of a speech in Warsaw: 'For God's sake, this man cannot remain in power.' The White House quickly tried to walk back the comments, saying the president meant Putin could not continue to wield power over neighbors. Asked why the White House put out a statement walking back Biden's remarks just 45 minutes later, Bedingfield offered: 'I can tell you from working for President Biden for seven years that only President Biden decides what President Biden is going to say.' 'The statement was only a confirmation ... that that statement did not represent an official policy change,' she added. After Biden's shock remarks other Western leaders said they feared that any hint of regime change might make it harder for Putin to dial back his deadly war in Ukraine....
    President Joe Biden's unscripted closing statement during a speech in Warsaw, Poland on Saturday in which he appeared to call for the ouster of Russian President Vladimir Putin was a stark break from the administration's previous stance that regime change in Moscow was not something sought by the United States. "For God’s sake, this man cannot remain in power," Biden said at the end of a powerful address about Putin's ruthless invasion of Ukraine. Fearing potential repercussions or misinterpretation by the Kremlin, the White House and Secretary of State Antony Blinken quickly tried to clarify what Biden actually meant. “The president’s point was that Putin cannot be allowed to exercise power over his neighbors or the region. He was not discussing Putin’s power in Russia, or regime change,” one official said in an email to news outlets. "On Putin, Biden expressed what billions around the world and millions inside Russia also believe. He did not say that the US should remove him from power. There is a difference," tweeted former US Ambassador to Russia Michael McFaul. On Putin, Biden expressed...
    Secretary of State Antony Blinken said on Sunday that the United States is not looking for 'regime change' in Moscow or anywhere else in the world after President Joe Biden said Vladimir Putin 'cannot remain in power.' Biden went directly after the Russian autocrat in an emotional speech on Saturday, warning if Putin's ambitions went unchecked it could lead to decades of war in Europe.   Speaking to reporters in Jerusalem the next day, Blinken explained that his boss was likely referring to Putin's influence outside of his country -- including Moscow's bloody and unprovoked invasion of Ukraine which has now spanned over a month. 'I think the president, the White House, made the point last night that, quite simply, President Putin cannot be empowered to wage war or engage in aggression against Ukraine or anyone else,' Blinken said according to multiple reports.  'As you know, and as you have heard us say repeatedly, we do not have a strategy of regime change in Russia -- or anywhere else, for that matter.' The US's chief diplomat was speaking at a press conference...
    President Joe Biden stunned pundits and politicians on Saturday when, at the end of a fiery speech in Warsaw, he seemed to endorse regime change in Russia, saying Vladimir Putin “cannot remain in power.” His speech caused a huge reaction, particularly among members of the media and public figures in areas of foreign policy and politics. That included a lot of people on social media comparing his commentary to Ronald Reagan’s historic “Tear Down This Wall” speech in Berlin in June of 1987. “For God’s sake, this man cannot remain in power” is Biden’s "Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall" — Paul Massaro (@apmassaro3) March 26, 2022 Pres. Biden may have just given his “tear down this wall” speech. Wow. #Ukraine — Tara Setmayer ???? (@TaraSetmayer) March 26, 2022 Historic moral clarity that recalls Reagan’s “tear down this wall.” I’m proud of America leading from the front once again. And proud of my president. https://t.co/wlrTGPOWZA — Adam Edelen (@adamhedelen) March 26, 2022 Heres why the GOP is flailing on this; Biden did "Tear...
    (CNN)President Joe Biden told news anchors during a lunch ahead of the State of the Union on Tuesday that he has a major message he wants to send to the American people: America and its allies will remain united in their response to Russia's invasion of Ukraine, and it's that unity that gives strength.. The off-the-record lunch between news anchors from various networks and the President is traditionally held at the White House each year ahead of the State of the Union address. Asked to characterize Tuesday night's speech, especially as it pertains to Ukraine, Biden went on the record and told the anchors that he felt it was important to talk about his "determination to see to it that the (European Union), NATO, all of our allies are on the same exact page, in terms of sanctions against Russia and how we deal with the invasion -- and it is an invasion -- of Ukraine. " "Because that's the one thing that gives us power to impose severe consequences on (Russian President Vladimir) Putin for what he's done. And...
    White nationalist Nick Fuentes speaks in New York City in November 2021.Rainmaker photos/AP Fight disinformation. Get a daily recap of the facts that matter. Sign up for the free Mother Jones newsletter.Late on Friday night, I watched a group of roughly 1,000 people, mostly young white American men, openly cheer for Black people to be jailed and for “radical solutions” to be deployed in the face of the great replacement white power conspiracy theory. America is large enough to where you can easily gather a crowd who will believe almost anything. It’s harder for such a group to have a direct line to the powers that be who can help them enact their vision. This gathering, put together by white supremacist Nick Fuentes, did. Nine current and former elected officials spoke to his American First Political Action Conference over the weekend, including Lt. Gov. Janice McGeachin (R-Idaho) and serving members of Congress Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) and Paul Gosar (R-Ariz.), among others.  It wasn’t the first such gathering—AFPAC has a history of, like it did here, throwing its own events in...
    Campaign workers begin to look forward at the 2020 campaign for President Welcome back to the weekly Nuts & Bolts Guide to small campaigns. This week, I want us to step back and look at some small and not-so-small campaigns and think about them as businesses. After we take that step back, we need to take a serious look at how campaigns can empower women, Black, Hispanic, AAPI, and other BIPOC workers, or how they can fail to do so by providing minorities only the opportunities that would be rejected by almost any white male hired into the post.  In other words: Do campaigns and some donors overvalue white men in campaign leadership roles? Do we second-guess the process when campaign leaders are not white men? Well, it isn’t just the NFL that can run into trouble for stereotyping leadership. Campaigns are made up of an organizational pyramid, and when we second-guess the authority of the pyramid, or when white men get upset about not having a say over it, we have to sit down and think about what control of a campaign means. When your campaign is...
    Horrifying footage of white supremacists at a neo-Nazi rally in Orlando, Florida, has emerged on social media. The hate group shouted anti-Semitic slurs referring to Jewish people as 'the devil', expressed anti-Black sentiments and waved Nazi flags. The clips from Saturday, including one where the group could we seen stomping on an Israeli flag and chanted about 'white power', were widely condemned online. Those at the rally chanted hateful phrases, including 'the Jew is the devil', 'Jews rape children and drink their blood' and 'Jews brought slaves here' The gathering took place just two days after International Holocaust Remembrance Day.   Campaign group StopAntisemitism.org tweeted photos and videos from the rally with the caption: 'A horrific anti-Semitic, anti-black rally is happening right now in Orlando, FL orchestrated by white supremacist Eddie McBride and his group NSM. 'Why are local PD allowing this?' Those at the rally chanted hateful phrases, including 'the Jew is the devil', 'Jews rape children and drink their blood' and 'Jews brought slaves here'. The rally, which was organized by the National Socialist Movement (NMS) was live-streamed on...
    Mark MeadowsTom Williams/Getty Fight disinformation. Get a daily recap of the facts that matter. Sign up for the free Mother Jones newsletter.Perhaps it should surprise no one that former President Donald Trump’s scrambling henchmen reviewed a literal, honest-to-god PowerPoint presentation with plans for a coup attempt in early January, as the president’s efforts to retain power despite his electoral loss were reaching a fever pitch. Then-Chief of Staff Mark Meadows got the document sent to him just a day before the Capitol riot; he recently turned over the presentation, titled “Election Fraud, Foreign Interference & Options for 6 JAN” to the congressional committee investigating January 6, according to a letter released by the committee this week. The PowerPoint’s recommendations are staggeringly batshit: Trump, the document said, should declare a national security emergency, proclaim all electronic voting invalid, and ask Congress to decide on a path forward. Vice President Mike Pence, it added, should abuse his ceremonial power to certify the election results to reject electors from “states where fraud occurred” or replace them with Republicans.  A new Washington Post story...
    About 20 members of the far-right Proud Boys group marched on the streets of Long Island to protest against Small Business Saturday, irritating local elected officials and terrorizing shoppers.   The march happened in the Village of Rockville Centre, on the South Shore in Nassau County, as members of the group were taped walking down Sunrise Highway while waving giant American and Don't Tread on Me flags.  Most of them were also filmed making hand gestures for white power, while loud music was playing from the back of a yellow pickup truck that had a 'Law and Order' banner on display on its roof.  Wearing bandanas over their faces in order to remain unidentifiable, some members of the group even barged into local shops, shouting the militia group's slogans and handing out flyers promoting their 12 principles, including 'minimal government,' 'anti-racism,' 'anti-racial guilt,' 'venerate the housewife' and 'reinstate the spirit of Western chauvinism.'  Rockville Centre police monitored the march on the street, steering the crowd away from the demonstrators and controlling traffic. Dailymail.com has reached out to the Rockville Centre Police...
    U.S. President Joe Biden speaks during a ceremony to sign the "Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act", on the South Lawn at the White House in Washington, November 15, 2021.Jonathan Ernst | Reuters Democratic Party officials and donors are split over whom to blame for losses in several state-level races this month – and they're also divided over how the party can recover going into the 2022 midterm congressional elections. The biggest losses came in Virginia, including Republican Glenn Youngkin's triumph over former Gov. Terry McAuliffe in the gubernatorial election. In New Jersey, several Democrats lost in local races while Gov. Phil Murphy overcame a tougher-than-expected challenge from Republican Jack Ciattarelli.  Several wealthy donors have signaled they are done fundraising for and contributing to the Democratic National Committee, which is the political arm of the White House when a Democrat is president, and assists in campaigns across the country. These donors believe the DNC didn't do enough to help their favored candidates, especially McAuliffe, according to people familiar with the matter. Some of the people who commented for this story declined...
    Jimmy Kimmel roasted a mob of anti-vaxxers for marching to the Brooklyn Nets home opener in support of Kyrie Irving, terrorizing security guards “who had nothing to do with this at all.” For the first time in nearly a decade, the Nets welcomed fans to their season home opener with championship aspirations. Hoping to watch a large crowd of Nets fans parade into the Barclays Center, the franchise first had to endure a mob of angry anti-vaxxers attempting to break down barricades and doors to the arena. “They’re saying they haven’t seen a mob like this in Brooklyn since they introduced the Cronut. And the signs were almost as nutty as the people carrying them,” Kimmel while displaying a person with a long white beard holding a ‘Stand with Kyrie’ sign. “You know you’re on the wrong side when White Power Santa Claus is backing you,” the late-night host added. Kimmel also cited Irving’s history as a conspiracy theorist, with the NBA All-Star previously exposing himself as a flat-earther. In recent months, Irving has reportedly bought into...
    The White House has walked back a number of remarks President Biden made in a CNN town hall Thursday night.  A White House official said that the Biden administration is 'not actively pursuing the use of the National Guard on a federal level.'  'Requesting the use of the National Guard at the state level is under the purview of governors,' the official clarified, according to multiple news outlets.  'The answer is yes,' the president said, asked if he would send in the guard to alleviate supply chain issues that are leading to product shortages and rampant inflation. 'Absolutely, positively,' he added.  Asked if he would consider sending in the guard to drive trucks, the president said: 'Yes, if we can't increase the number of truckers.'  'The answer is yes,' the president said, asked if he would send in the guard to alleviate supply chain issues that are leading to product shortages and rampant inflation Cargo container trucks wait in line to enter AMP Terminals at the Port of Los Angeles, Oct. 20, A White House official said that the Biden...
    Maps are being redrawn all over the country in response to last year's census. Unfortunately, the process currently leaves a lot of room for partisan gerrymandering. It is the first time since the passage of the Voting Rights Act that district maps will be drawn without the preclearance requirement of the Voting Rights Act for many states. A 2019 Supreme Court case also makes it impossible to bring gerrymander cases to federal courts on the basis of partisanship. Luckily some states have passed redistricting reforms since the last census. Others have divided legislatures where partisan abuse is less likely. But there are states that will attempt to draw maps in blatantly partisan ways, particularly to protect Republican political power. The practice of manipulating voting districts for political power — ie, gerrymandering — wasn't invented in the US but it's hard to say we didn't perfect it. In 18th-century Britain, districts called "rotten boroughs" were drawn with few voters to ensure certain representatives were elected to Parliament. Gerrymandered districts have existed since the inception of US congressional districts, but...
    My yard is a mess. Admittedly it is my own fault, for being lazy and not keeping on top of things the way I should, so yesterday I was determined to get on my hands and knees and remove the millions of dandelions choking out my lawn. I’m not one for chemicals, because I worry about the dogs out on walks in the area, along with my own. So manual labor and a removal tool was the order of the day. You would think I would just hire someone to weed and/or cut the grass, but I’m cheap at times, and there is a  certain zen to doing the work. I often see lawn care services in my Pennsylvania neighborhood, doing people’s yards or just driving by, and have occasionally thought about contacting one, but I never have. Yesterday, a young man approached me to talk about what I was doing and possibly offering his services.   The whole experience left me rattled and angry at the end, and I am still not sure how to process it. I was in...
    (CNN)Presidents get into trouble when they are seen as controlled by events rather than the other way around. This is the situation now facing Joe Biden. The President is confronted by a slew of intractable domestic and global crises he has no power to quickly fix, a bunch of political crunches caused and exacerbated by his own choices and a deepening sense of a White House under siege. Rising gasoline prices and inflation, a global supply chain backup that could empty Santa's sled, and a pandemic Biden was elected to end but that won't go away dominate a testing political environment. The economy seems to have forgotten how to get people back to work. That's largely due to a summer Covid-19 surge powered mostly by conservatives who refuse to get vaccines and who view masking and mandates as an act of government oppression. Biden has been in Washington nearly 50 years, so he may be more sanguine than most about the boom and bust cycle of presidencies that has been rendered more extreme by social media and corrosive national polarization....
    Stephanie Grisham said Tuesday that Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump were running a shadow presidency in the Trump White House, where they could hire whom they please and would disappear when the going got tough.  'I believe that he and Ivanka kind of thought they were a shadow President and First Lady,' she said.  The former White House press secretary was on CNN's New Day as part of media tour for her memoir 'I'll Take Your Questions Now,' her tale about her work for Donald and Melania Trump, which is out on Tuesday.  She said Jared Kushner, the president's son-in-law whom she described as 'Rasputin in a slim-fitting,' grew 'heady with power' during his four years as Donald Trump's senior White House counselor.  Grisham said Kushner 'changed as we went through the White House. And he got really heady with power.' She said he hired his own chief of staff for his corner of the West Wing. 'He did what he wanted and nobody challenged him,' she noted. She described how then-White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows put a hiring freeze...
                      by Mckenna Dallmeyer  A curricular working group of students and faculty at Bates College is recommending that all students should be required to take two courses that center around “race, white supremacy and colonialism, and intersecting experiences of power and privilege.” To justify the recommendation, the working group asserts that an “essential part of liberal arts education” is to “critically discern, examine, and discuss the production and operation of difference, power, and equity.” Professor of English and Africana and member of the working group Theri Pickens told Campus Reform that “each of the faculty on the committee discussed and described the impacts that not studying race, power, privilege, white supremacy and colonialism has on their students. We agreed that students may find themselves ill-equipped for an increasingly globalized society.” Under the proposed recommendation obtained by Campus Reform, students would be mandated to take one introductory level course and one advanced-level course related to these subjects within the student’s field of study. “The requirement ensures that all students will necessarily be exposed to discipline-specific...
