  6. Fact-checking President Trump’s claims on Charlottesville, race relations and terrorism This week, we focused on claims made by President Trump in the aftermath of Saturday’s white nationalist rally and counter-protest in Charlottesville, Va., where a woman was killed and many others were injured. First, on Trump’s claim about permits. In blaming both sides for the violence, Trump twice asserted that both sides shared blame because unlike the white supremacists and neo-Nazis who obtained a permit to “innocently and very legally protest,” the counter-protesters lacked a permit and were “very, very violent.” There were two rallies by white nationalists — one on the University of Virginia campus on Friday night, and one at Emancipation Park on Saturday afternoon. No permits were needed to march on the U-Va. campus on Friday night. They had a permit for Emancipation Park, but counter-protestors did not need a permit to gather in the park or on the sidewalks outside, a city official said. Moreover, the counter-protesters did have permits for rallies on Saturday, at two other parks blocks away from Emancipation Park. Trump got it wrong, no matter how you slice it — earning Four Pinocchios. Enjoy this newsletter? Forward it to someone else who’d like it!

Trump’s false claim on investing in black communities When asked by a reporter whether he is concerned about race relations in the United States in the wake of Charlottesville, Trump said race relations have “gotten better or the same.” Trump claimed his administration is “spending a lot of money on the inner cities,” and that “fixing the inner cities” is a priority. Trump constantly — and incorrectly — uses “inner cities” (meaning low-income urban neighborhoods) to describe black America. But this is wrong. In recent decades, black residents made an exodus from urban cities and into the suburbs. Plus, this ignores the large black population in the rural South. Moreover, Trump’s proposed fiscal 2018 budget is incongruous with his claim. He proposed steep reductions to a variety of programs that disproportionately affect minority communities and lower-income Americans, from education to housing. There is a $225 billion backlog to fix America’s inner cities, yet Trump’s budget does not prioritize them or increase spending, like he claims. Actions speak louder than words. We awarded Four Pinocchios.

    I say Trump the Rump will keep in close contact with Bannon. They are both the same.

  14. This is the most practical approach : Put forth choices which would allow consumers aka voters to pick which seems more practical for their needs. === ObamaCare which retains the health insurance industry for those who are pleased with the medical insurance industry after all it is their dollar. This needs stiff federal regulations that cannot be superseded by the states. Offer a tax dollar rebate at the end of every year that would equal about what families would “payout” through taxes = $3300.. === Single Payer Medicare for ALL = excellent coverage for those who wish to enroll. The absolute best choice on planet earth. This group does not need tax rebates because our taxes are working for this plan and we the taxpayers. WE know that using the existing medicare template to service Medicare for All Single payer saves lots and lots of dollars over reinventing the wheel. http://www.healthcare-now.org/docs/spreport.pdf === ALLOW self financed health care for those able to do so. Paying out of pocket is more efficient for this group. Offer a tax dollar rebate at the end of every year that would equal about what families would “payout” through taxes = $3300. === ALL Disabled vets should receive Medicare with a 100% benefit so they and their families can receive medical care immediately upon discharge. === Let the voters approve this package. NO ONE SHOULD EVER BE UNDERINSURED AGAIN NEVER EVER. === Business SHOULD NOT BE FORCED TO PROVIDE HEALTH INSURANCE!
