At The Pleasure of the President

“If Bob Corker has any honor, any decency he should resign immediately. He should not let those words stand, what he said about the President of the United States.” Those are Steve Bannon’s words from earlier this hour on Hannity. Corker should resign his seat in the Senate for criticizing the President.

Coming Undone

For the last nine months – in some way for the last 28 months – we’ve been told there was some breaking point coming where President Trump’s hold over the GOP, his supporters or some mix of the two was about to come undone. I flagged a few articles last night that suggested something like that might be coming. I’m not suggesting some major rupture is afoot. But for a few different reasons, I do think this blow up with Bob Corker may be something new and different.

This is for two specific reasons: the 2018 election and tax reform.

Las Vegas was not the worst mass killing in American history: A his...

It has been said that Sunday’s mass shooting in Las Vegas in which Stephen Paddock open fire with assault weapons modified to fire automatically on a large crowd of concertgoers is the worst in American history. That’s not even close to being accurate. Others more correctly say that Las Vegas was the worst mass killing in modern American history. Depending on how you define “modern,” that is closer to accurate. Paddock's body count of 58 dead victims surpassed the 49 murdered by Omar Mateen when he opened fire inside the Pulse nightclub in Orlando in June 2016. That led some to proclaim this killing spree to be the worst. But the history of mass shootings didn’t begin 20 or 30 years ago — or even when Charles Whitman opened fire from the clock tower at the University of Texas in 1966. You don’t have to go back much further in American history to find slaughters even bigger than Vegas. You can start with Wounded Knee on what is now the Pine Ridge Reservation in southwestern South Dakota.

...

The number of victims at Wounded Knee varies widely, depending on which account you read, from 150 up to 300. But whatever the number, it apparently doesn’t count as “modern.”

...

And then there is the Sand Creek Massacre of November 29, 1864, in which Colorado volunteers under the command of Col. John Chivington slaughtered and mutilated anywhere from 70-163 Cheyenne and Arapaho, most of whom were women and children.

Here is an eyewitness account from the Wikipedia article on Sand Creek that describes just how brutal and sadistic it was:...

And then there was the white mob that attacked and burned the Greenwood community of African-Americans in Tulsa, Okla., on May 31-June 1, 1921, killing as many as 300...

When the New York Times wrote that story in 2011 on the Greenwood killings many survivors were still alive. But it apparently doesn’t qualify as “modern.”

There were other mass killings. The Colfax Massacre of 1873 in Louisiana resulted in 150 deaths of African-Americans. The list goes on and on.

Many of those massacres have been largely forgotten by a nation that often wants to erase its bloody history.

Thus the necessity, perhaps, to make a distinction between modern history and all of history...

Federal Judge Strikes Down Tax-Free Housing For Clergy

MADISON, Wis. (AP) — A federal judge in Wisconsin has struck down as unconstitutional a law that gives clergy tax-free housing allowances.

The decision released Friday could have far-reaching financial ramifications for pastors across the country. Religious groups have been defending the allowance from legal challenges for years.

Under the federal law passed in 1954, ministers don’t pay income taxes on compensation that is designated part of a housing allowance.

The Freedom From Religion Foundation argued that the law discriminates against secular employees.

U.S. District Judge Barbara Crabb ruled that the exemption provides an unconstitutional benefit to religious persons and no one else, violating the establishment clause of the U.S. Constitution.

Crabb also struck down the law in 2013, but a federal appeals court vacated her ruling because those challenging it didn’t have standing.

French schoolgirl, 10, 'beaten up for being Jewish after classmates taunt her for days'

The 10-year-old had been hit and taunted for days before the assault in a school in Paris, France, that put her in hospital for 10 days

An anti-semitic watchdog called on police to investigate the assault AFP/Getty Images

A schoolgirl was assaulted by bullies apparently because she was Jewish – in an attack that came after they had beaten and taunted her for several days over her faith, a report said.

The 10-year-old – named only as Ness C – was taken to hospital for injuries to her ribs and stomach in the assault in Paris, and was kept for treatment for 10 days until she fully recovered.

The mother later complained the school failed to protect her daughter or take action against the girl’s classmates who were behind the attack in the school in Paris's 18th arrondissement.

Jewish women brutally attacked by man shouting 'dirty Muslims'

The woman reported the apparent race crime to a watchdog, which published details of the incident on their websiteand called for a police investigation.

The National Bureau of Vigilance against Anti-Semitism also contacted education chiefs in Paris who offered to place the girl in a school of her choice, as her mother requested.

It came just weeks after a Jewish family were beaten and robbed and threatened they would be killed after robbers burst into their home in what was described as an anti-Semitic attack.

The assailants tied up the family and ransacked their property in Livry-Gargan, outside of Paris, taking valuables such as jewellery, said Jewish organisation CRIF.

In a statement, the president of the campaign group, Francis Kalifat, called on the security services to do more to protect Jews from attacks.

France’s interior ministry Gérard Collomb described the attack as a “cowardly act” and added that race crimes against people of the faith “have no place in the French nation”.

A soaring number of Jews have left France in recent years, amounting to some 5,000 last year – down more than a quarter on 2015 when a record 7,900 quit the country, figures show.

Analysts put the exodus down to increasing anti-Semitism and over fears of further extremist attacks by Islamic radicals.
