Wednesday Open Thread | Say Her Name: SANDRA BLAND

We found out yesterday that Sandra Bland recorded her encounter with the police. We find this out THREE YEARS after her death?


HOW could it take THREE YEARS for this tape to come out and be noticed.
I asked SG2 and Ametia this question.
HOW could it take THREE YEARS?
HOW could her family not be told in all this time?
WHAT is going on with the District Attorney’s office?
WHAT level of corruption going on where a key piece of evidence is suppressed like this?
No other way to look at it other than suppression.

It is based like this which make support of District Attorney ‘s that do their job all the more important. It is obvious, with this revelation, that the District Attorney is in bed with the police department, and no one was interested in finding out the truth of what happened to Sandra Bland.

    More of Rudy’s Lawlessness Abroad

    Last week I flagged this stunning and egregious story about Rudy Giuliani, the President’s private lawyer, going abroad to use to use the President’s power to enlist other governments to attack President Trump’s enemies. Giuliani has been globe-trotting like this for two years. In most cases, we don’t really know what he’s doing. In most cases he’s likely just collecting money. But in this case he’s using threat or inducement of the President’s power to target the President’s political enemies and then looping the corrupt Attorney General into the process.

    This latest Trump/Giuliani gambit managed to get laundered into The New York Times via outlets like the propaganda chop shop at The Hill under John Solomon.

    But here are some key new details.

    Bloomberg News has now looked at the charges leveled in the Times. Basically even on its own terms it falls apart. The timeline doesn’t even hold up. The charge itself was always marginal at best. Vice President Biden was the lead in a pan-European effort to get a compromised state prosecutor out. What’s more, the current prosecutor denied the Times’ claim that he had reopened the case.

    It’s important to remember here that whatever the facts of this underlying case, the most pressing issue for the US is having an emissary of the sitting President visiting foreign countries and leveraging them to target the US President’s political enemies. In the case of Ukraine, so on the ropes with Russia’s presence in the east, the favor of the US President is an almost existential matter. But there’s more.

    You may have seen the news that the US Ambassador to Ukraine is being recalled early from her post. Given the fraught politics surrounding everything in the US-Russia, US-Ukraine relationships, it’s no surprise that people speculate this may be tied in some way to something other than a normal diplomatic rotation. But … well, it turns out it does.

    Ambassador Marie Yovanovitch, largely out of the mainstream media’s eye, has been the target of attacks from Giuliani, John Solomon and other members of the Trump family mafia for something like a year, both seeking to connect her to Hillary Clinton’s purported 2016 “collusion” with Ukraine but also attempts to work with the out-going Ukrainian government to damage Joe Biden in advance of the 2020 campaign.

    Career diplomats and members of the national security establishment bemoan a career State Department official being brought down by this kind of Trump family mafia claptrap and agitprop. They’re absolutely right to do so. But perverting the US criminal justice system and trying to goad foreign friends into targeted the President’s domestic political enemies is a far bigger deal.

    We keep hearing that we need to be on guard about what Russia may do in the 2020 cycle. This is the wrong fear. The calls and the collusion are coming from inside the house. The Trump household mafia is already hitting up new foreign partners, but this time using the full power of the Presidency and all the favors it can bestow on foreign states. It’s all happening now. The dirty work is already being funneled into the pages of the country’s most prominent news paper. There’s much more to come.

    Trump red line failing despite urgency to keep finances opaque
    Rachel Maddow shares details from a new blockbuster report from the New York Times about what Donald Trump’s taxes show about the bleak state of his business affairs from the mid-1980s to the mid-1990s, and notes that Trump’s best efforts to keep his finances secret are not likely to block every possible avenue of their release.

    I think there’s always been a lack of understanding of the role of AA’s in the Democratic Party. They’re portrayed as an “interest group” and not political actors in their own right, and that’s not true at the local Party level. If I go to the Cleveland women’s Democratic caucus lunch, it is run by black women. They have their own political power. Obama was fascinating to watch in Ohio because Clinton went to state-level Democrats (both elected and not) and county chairs, while Obama went to mayors. He knew where black political power was. Mayors were better to have. They drove turnout in the areas he needed, and they did that in ’08 and again in ’12.
