Barack Obama does not “direct” any companies. He basically sold Naming Rights so companies can use his name. He has very few speaking engagements, and no one hired him for any real consulting. He’s been hiding ever since he left office. His money is a scandal.

Rep. Seth Moulton is set to end his 2020 presidential bid after failing to gain traction in the polls or with donors.

The three-term congressman plans to say in a speech later on Friday that he feels confident that he "raised issues that are vitally important to the American people and our future," and he will pledge to campaign vigorously for the eventual Democratic nominee.

FILLER WARNING: https://www.realclearpolitics.com/articles/2019/08/21/gabbard_victimized_by_dncs_dubious_debate_criteria_141055.html
Quote
To recap: Gabbard has polled at 2% or more in two polls sponsored by the two largest newspapers in two early primary states, but the DNC -- through its mysteriously incoherent selection process -- has determined that these surveys do not count toward her debate eligibility. Without these exclusions, Gabbard would have already qualified. She has polled at 2% or more in two polls officially deemed “qualifying,” and surpassed the 130,000 donor threshold on Aug. 2. While the latter metric would seem more indicative of “grassroots support” -- a formerly obscure Hawaii congresswoman has managed to secure more than 160,000 individual contributions from all 50 states, according to the latest figures from her campaign -- the DNC has declared that it will prioritize polling over donors. In polls with a sample size of just a few hundred people, this means excluding candidates based on what can literally amount to rounding errors: A poll that places a candidate at 1.4% could be considered non-qualifying, but a poll that places a candidate at 1.5% is considered qualifying. Pinning such massive decisions for the trajectory of a campaign on insignificant fractional differences seems wildly arbitrary.
Quote
Then there’s the larger issue of how exactly the DNC is gauging grassroots enthusiasm, which was ostensibly supposed to be the principle governing the debate-qualifying process in the first place. Gabbard was the most Googled candidate twice in a row after each previous debate, which at a minimum should indicate that there is substantial interest in her campaign. It’s an imperfect metric -- Google searches and other online criteria could be subject to manipulation -- but then again, the other metrics are also noticeably imperfect. There is no reason why the DNC could not incorporate a range of factors in determining which candidates voters are entitled to hear from on a national stage. For what it’s worth, she also tends to generate anomalously large interest on YouTube and social media, having gained the second-most Twitter followers of any candidate after the most recent debate in July. Again, these are imperfect metrics, but the entire debate-qualifying process is based on imperfect metrics.

Being a black Trump republican seems to be more lucrative than being a black anti-Obama republican circa 2009-2015.

Tavis Smiley and Cornell West got fiercely dragged for not supporting Obama fervently enough.

https://news.yahoo.com/full-story-trump-free-asap-rocky-161654472.html


Quote
A source close to Kushner said there were “two streams” of people who were in touch with him about Rocky’s case. Scott and Lanier were one, and reality television star Kim Kardashian was the other. Kardashian, an advocate of criminal justice reform, has also visited the White House to push for the release of individual prisoners. The source said Kardashian was urged to advocate for Rocky by her husband, Kanye West, the rapper who controversially declared support for Trump and had an Oval Office visit of his own in late 2018.

According to the source, after Kushner heard about Rocky, he “brought it to the president,” who tasked Secretary of State Mike Pompeo with taking “the lead” on the issue. However, both Kushner and Trump stayed involved.

 :doge

Quote
Lanier dismissed that argument. “He won the election with 8 percent of the black vote,” he said of Trump. “He doesn’t need black voters or need A$AP Rocky to get black voters. ... He did this because it was the right thing to do.”

What a fucking ride this is.

Quote
Both Lanier and Scott were upset that Rocky never acknowledged the assistance he had gotten. Lanier attributed this to the potential blowback that an African-American celebrity like Rocky could face for embracing Trump.

“One of the problems that we have as a culture — and I’m talking about black Americans — is herd mentality,” Lanier said. “Right now it’s popular for those guys to bash President Trump.”

The two men said they were left disappointed that Rocky didn’t thank the White House — even behind the scenes.

“All he had to do was do a two-minute call to say thank you,” said Scott. “Rocky hasn’t even called us and said, ‘Hey, man, thank you guys. I appreciate it,’ in private. Just in private.”

:hmph

I've been thinking about how Trump slipped fentanyl into the whole discussion.

This article is from today:

Quote
Thomas Overacker, executive director of cargo and conveyance security for Customs and Border Protection, told Congress in July that his agency is able to inspect only about 2 percent of cars and 16 percent of commercial vehicles that come across ports of entry at the southwest border — another major conduit for fentanyl.

By simply demanding that every single import be inspected for fentanyl, he can shut it all down.

Quote
Coleman, who was kidnapped with Boyle during a backpacking trip to neighboring Afghanistan in 2012, had already endured more than two years of deprivation, assault and the ever-present possibility of summary execution at the hands of the Haqqani network, the feared Taliban faction known for attacking Westerners. Her first child, a boy, was born shortly after they were taken captive. A second pregnancy was terminated after a guard secretly added chemicals to their food, she and Boyle believed.

Now her third pregnancy was coming to an accelerated end

So they get put in a taliban prison and decide to start popping out kids in their cell?
