Trump-loving skinhead group led by GOP official beats up black man at Pennsylvania bar: police

Published

on

Not only did members of a white supremacist gang allegedly beat up a black man in a Pittsburgh bar for his race, but their GOP official leader was charged with doing the same thing in 2003.

Local news station KDKA reported that six or seven alleged members of the Keystone United gang beat up a man named Paul Morris outside a Pittsburgh bar earlier in July. The Citizen, a local Pittsburgh gazette, reported that witnesses at the Jackman Inn bar identified the gang members by their style of dress, insignia and skinhead looks.

Morris told The Citizen that he was at the bar to give a thank-you note to the kitchen manager for making food for his son’s graduation party. He said that after the group made “vulgar comments” to him about his race, a group that consisted of both men and women jumped him and the kitchen manager who rushed to his aid. The group fled when someone said the police had been called — but not before Morris heard one of them identify themselves as “Neo-Nazis” who want to “eradicate” people of color.

The Daily Beast reported that Keystone United founder Steve Smith, an elected official within his county’s Republican Party, was not at the scene of the crime when the alleged members attacked Morris. The founder of the white supremacist gang did, however, plead guilty to “terroristic threats” and “ethnic intimidation” after beating up a black man. He’s currently listed as the group’s “spokesman,” per their website.

Smith only served 60 days in prison for the attack on a black man in Scranton, Pennsylvania, the Beast noted, and remained active with Keystone until 2012, when he “won an uncontested race for a committee seat in his county’s Republican party.” He was re-elected in 2016 and celebrated his victory on the white supremacist Stormfront forum, the Southern Poverty Law Center reported.

Sometimes referred to as the “Keystone State Skinheads,” the Beast reported that Keystone United members “travel en masse” to Donald Trump’s rallies. Along with Smith,

Published

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu spent his Father’s Day dedicating a new Trump Tower-type building that hasn't been built in a town that doesn't exist.

Standing in front of a large sign saying "Trump Heights," Netanyahu, who is being forced back into another election, announced the building before planning even began, Axios reported.

A great day on the Golan. PM Netanyahu and I had the honor to dedicate “Trump Heights” — first time Israel has dedicated a village in honor of a sitting president since Harry Truman (1949). Happy Birthday Mr. President!! @POTUS pic.twitter.com/fdYWzokFLK

This graphic explains why Speaker Pelosi is resistant to impeachment

Published

on

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) has told her caucus that they can do investigations into the president without impeachment. The difference, however, is that there are fewer legal benefits available to Congress in their oversight role than in impeachment.

Theoretically, it should enable Democrats to do the research they need, but the White House is taking the bold step to defy the oversight the Constitution outlines. The only option open to the Democrats has been to go to court with their case outlining how the White House is breaking the law. Thus far, they've won two lawsuits about their investigations, and they will likely gain more.

Trump says if GOP paid for Steele dossier ‘there’d be hell to pay’ — Republicans paid for half of it

Published

on

President Donald Trump tweeted out once again that he doesn't know the difference between a man hired to do opposition research and an entire country intruding on an election to sway the result.

In a Sunday Twitter rant, Trump proclaimed that if Republicans had done something like that, "there'd be hell to pay."

......If Republicans ever did that to the Democrats, there would be all hell to pay. It would be a scandal like no other!
