Fascinating list of laws passed against Native people. A lesson in structural racism, from the author of classic fanfic My Immortal (oddly enough).

Trump at dinner with military commanders: “You guys know what this represents, the calm before the storm." No explanation.

Keep in mind that in his Tweets, Trump has confused and conflated North Korean leader Kim Il-Sung, Kim Jong-Il and Kim Jong-Un as one person, who he calls "Rocket Man" ... Almost certainly a decision made to avoid saying the wrong name.

Trump: "Being nice to Rocket Man hasn't worked in 25 years, why would it work now? Clinton failed, Bush failed, and Obama failed. I won't fail."

(Kim Jong-Un was 8 years old 25 years ago.)

What does "failed" mean in this context? Trump seems to be pushing us to nuclear war with this small, private nation, for no urgent reason. Is he saying that Clinton "failed" by not getting into a nuclear war with an eight year old? Did Bush and Obama "fail" by not getting into a nuclear war with a globally unimportant nation?

This is chilling.

Grain of salt here, as other posters in this damn thread are alt-righters/Neo Nazis. But anonymous poster "Harry Hollywood" on page 1 (only) names several men who abused Corey Haim/Feldman, several of which are confirmed or basically confirmed now.
