That last sentence is a tad puzzling… :P
Presumably if neo-Nazis uncovered a massive child sex trafficking ring it would be racist to investigate it.

CNN's Jeffrey Toobin Falsely Blames Antifa Violence on Black Americans
CNN senior legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin bizarrely pinned the blame for Antifa violence on black Americans Tuesday night, saying that the far-left group is “widely perceived as an African-American organization.”
So, black outfit == black folks?

Hurricane Florence: Washington Post declares Trump is 'complicit' for dangerous storm
The editorial board of the Washington Post has declared that President Trump is “complicit” for Hurricane Florence because of his views on climate change.

The massive storm has not made landfall yet, but the Post published a column on Wednesday headlined, “Another hurricane is about to batter our coast. Trump is complicit.”

The piece also notes that Trump has given “good advice” when issuing hurricane warnings via his Twitter feed before it launched an attack on the president.

“When it comes to extreme weather, Mr. Trump is complicit. He plays down humans’ role in increasing the risks, and he continues to dismantle efforts to address those risks. It is hard to attribute any single weather event to climate change. But there is no reasonable doubt that humans are priming the Earth’s systems to produce disasters,” the editorial board wrote.
So the last several administrations had nothing to do with climate change....TRUMP==boogie man!
Okay...

Not to mention there is no statistically significant correlation between global warming and hurricanes, according to NOAA hurricane expert Chris Landsea.

I think I agree with you folks on this one. Never much liked arguing over long term trends by pointing at individual events. In the long term we have to be responsible for our own leadership anyway. It's too big to assign a meaningful portion to a single personality.
"If fighting is sure to result in victory, then you must fight! Sun Tzu said that, and I'd say he knows a little bit more about fighting than you do, pal, because he invented it, and then he perfected it so that no living man could best him in the ring of honor. Then, he used his fight money to buy two of every animal on earth, and then he herded them onto a boat, and then he beat the crap out of every single one. And from that day forward any time a bunch of animals are together in one place it's called a zoo! (Beat) Unless it's a farm!"

I think they do do know. And they are not even being illogical.

They may be lying about really thinking that, or insane, but they really are claiming exactly that. A conspiracy of Big Business and Republican politicians who hate the planet, and of course Trump is complicit. It logically follows the premises.

This is the Democratic Party line for all hurricanes and general bad weather under Republican presidents at least since Bush the Elder. Maybe with Trump they are more vehement about it, but it's really same old and not "Trump derangement syndrome".

Its Curtains!
State Department Spent $52,701 on Curtains for Residence of U.N. Envoy

This bit of fake news, was already updated with an apology for implying...fake news, go figure.
WASHINGTON — The State Department spent $52,701 for customized and mechanized curtains for the picture windows in the new official residence of the ambassador to the United Nations.
Is now preceded by:
Editors’ Note: September 14, 2018

An earlier version of this article and headline created an unfair impression about who was responsible for the purchase in question. While Nikki R. Haley is the current ambassador to the United Nations, the decision on leasing the ambassador’s residence and purchasing the curtains was made during the Obama administration, according to current and former officials. The article should not have focused on Ms. Haley, nor should a picture of her have been used. The article and headline have now been edited to reflect those concerns, and the picture has been removed.

Did they replace the picture of Nikki Haley with a picture of Samantha Power?

Remember this big BOMBSHELL yesterday that said the American Bar Association called for a delay in a vote on SCOTUS nominee Brett Kavanaugh? From the New York Times:
The A.B.A. request was made on Thursday evening in a letter from the association’s president, Robert M. Carlson, to the Senate Judiciary Committee’s chairman, Charles E. Grassley, an Iowa Republican, and Senator Dianne Feinstein of California, the senior Democrat on the panel.

The bar association urged that senators vote on Judge Kavanaugh’s nomination “only after an appropriate background check into the allegations made by Professor Blasey and others is completed by the Federal Bureau of Investigation,” the letter said.

The call for a pause is significant not just because of the bar association’s clout in the legal community, but because an A.B.A. committee had said unanimously a month ago that Judge Kavanaugh was “well qualified” for the Supreme Court, its highest possible designation.
Senate Dems jumped all over it:
But, surprise! It was Fake News.

The Senate Judiciary Committee released this letter on Friday from the ABA stating that Robert Carlson, the President of the American Bar Association who wrote the letter, didn’t get the it approved by the committee that actually votes on this sort of thing and that the ABA’s rating of Judge Kavanaugh “is not affected”:

Leading fake news site CNN still has the fake news on their site uncorrected: https://www.cnn.com/2018/09/27/politics ... index.html

Falsehood will fly, as it were, on the wings of the wind, and carry its tales to every corner of the earth; whilst truth lags behind; her steps, though sure, are slow and solemn, and she has neither vigour nor activity enough to pursue and overtake her enemy…

Viral video of feminist pouring bleach on manspreaders debunked as Russian propaganda

I saw a YouTube video about this a few days ago and I thought it was fake at the time.
