NEW YORK TIMES EDITS OUT DAMNING McAULIFFE QUOTES ON CHARLOTTESVILLE

Lost amidst all the mainstream media furor over what President Trump said about the violence in Charlottesville, Virginia, when he said it, and who he condemned is any real analysis on their part about why that violence occurred in the first place. Specifically why were the state and local police ordered to stand down, allowing the white nationalists and Antifa groups to clash.

NBC CLAIMS IT WON’T ‘PROVIDE PLATFORM’ TO WHITE SUPREMACISTS...AS IT DOES JUST THAT

After Wednesday’s NBC Nightly News devoted an entire report to elevating the racist views of a white nationalist, on Thursday’s Today, correspondent Gabe Gutierrez claimed the network wanted to avoid promoting such offensive extremists: “Experts who track these groups say that they feel emboldened and are not going away. And while we don’t want to provide a platform for these fringe voices, it’s important to understand who they are.”

SOME TRUMP ELECTION COMMISSIONERS OPPOSE DHS CYBERSECURITY MOVE

One of them says the threat of Russian meddling was invented to allow a federal takeover of the voting process.

Editorial Comment

If you search the Constitution for where it gives the federal government any authority over voting (such as guaranteeing a “right to vote”), you’ll first find in Article IV, Section. 4. “The United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union a Republican Form of Government …” That’s a pretty broad statement. The dictionary defines “republic” thus: “a state in which the supreme power rests in the body of citizens entitled to vote and is exercised by representatives chosen directly or indirectly by them.” That leaves to the states to determine what “the body of citizens entitled to vote” consists of. Looking further, you’ll find some restrictions on what voting cannot be denied for (failure to pay poll tax, race, previous state of bondage, age and sex), but that’s all. Other than that, the federal government has no constitutional basis for interfering in any way in how states conduct their voting. - BK

BLACK LIVES MATTER ACTIVISTS FLOAT CRIMINALIZATION OF CONFEDERATE IMAGERY

In the aftermath of violence at a white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, progressive activists nationwide have demanded, and in some cases illegally carried out, the tearing down and removal of statues and monuments to Confederate leaders and soldiers on public space.
