Some real news about fake news ...
.
The Washington Post, Nick Sandmann settle $250 million lawsuit out of court

In a tweet Friday, Sandmann said: "The fight isn't over. 2 down. 6 to go."  CNN has settled with Sandmann in January. The details of that settlement were private.  There are outstanding lawsuits against NBC, ABC News, CBS News, The New York Times, Rolling Stone and Gannett. The Enquirer is owned by Gannett.  Between all the lawsuits, Sandmann sought $1.25 billion in damages. With the CNN and Washington Post lawsuits settled, he is still seeking $725 million.

Barr personally ordered removal of protesters near White House, leading to use of force against largely peaceful crowd




Attorney General William P. Barr personally ordered law enforcement officials on the ground to clear the streets around Lafayette Square just before President Trump spoke Monday, a Justice Department official said, a directive that prompted a show of aggression against a crowd of largely peaceful protesters, drawing widespread condemnation.


...


On Tuesday, however, federal officials offered conflicting reasons for the forcible removal of the protesters, seeking to separate the move from Trump’s visit to the church.

The White House asserted that the crowd was dispersed to help enforce the city’s 7 p.m. curfew. Meanwhile, two federal law enforcement officials said the decision had been made late Sunday night or early Monday morning to extend the perimeter around Lafayette Square by one block.

The plan was to be executed, according to the Justice Department official, the following afternoon. Barr was a part of the decision-making process, the official said, was not authorized to speak ahead of Barr addressing the matter himself publicly and spoke on the condition of anonymity.

The Justice Department official said that in the afternoon, Barr went to survey the scene and found the perimeter had not been extended. The attorney general conferred with law enforcement officials on the ground.

“He conferred with them to check on the status, and basically said, ‘This needs to be done. Get it done,’” the Justice Department official said.


Police soon moved on the protesters.

Throughout Tuesday, several federal agencies involved in the response declined to answer questions about who ordered the use of force and the clearing of the park, which occurred just before Trump’s visit to the park.

A White House spokesman declined to comment on who gave the order, referring questions to law enforcement agencies. The Secret Service declined to comment. A spokesman for the U.S. Park Police said the agency would have a statement, but did not provide one as of Tuesday afternoon.


Defense officials on Tuesday said the National Guard did not participate in decision to clear Lafayette Square on Monday evening and did not take part in firing any rubber bullets or gas.


D.C. city officials said they were not involved in the decision to use force, which Mayor Muriel E. Bowser (D) called “shameful.”


“I didn’t see any provocation that would warrant the deployment of munitions, and especially for the purpose of moving the president across the street,” the mayor said at a Tuesday news conference.

Trump had directed Barr to personally “lead” the response to the unrest in D.C. Monday night, according to Justice Department spokeswoman. Less than an hour before police moved to clear the peaceful demonstrators from in front of Lafayette Park, Barr was spotted on video talking to  officials at the scene.

Around the same time, White House deputy chief of operations Tony Ornato  contacted the Secret Service to arrange for the president to make a brief, unplanned appearance outside St. John’s Church, according to two people familiar with the plans. Following protocol, the Secret Service alerted other law enforcement agencies it would need help clearing the area for the president’s safety, they said.

REALITY:

Park Police say DC protesters cleared because they attacked cops, not because of Trump church visit: report


https://www.foxnews.com/politics/dc-protesters-trump-church-visit


 

That scenario wouldn't surprise me but I'm not so sure I'd call that Fox News assertion "reality" just yet -at least not until there is an official statement from the Park Police.   "...on Tuesday morning, Park Police sources told WTOP  that this was not the case, arguing that the protesters were not all peaceful, that tear gas was not used, and that officers did not know of Trump’s visit to the house of worship...The Park Police did not immediately respond to request for comment from Fox News."
There is a later Tweet from Augenstein (well, quite a few later Tweets): :"Obviously, this is Park Police's side of the story. I'll be checking with @wtop reporters who were on the scene last night, to plug-in what they observed with what Park Police are telling me. Park Police will be releasing a statement later today."

 
It is inconceivable that the Secret Service would allow a president to be anywhere near the place if the people there had been attacking cops. 

 
Exactly. Trump would not have made that walk unless the area had been secured.  

Washington Post is reporting that AG Barr had ordered the law enforcement  perimeter be extended by a block.

Hmmmm. I am pretty sure I saw a post here from KK citing a news article saying that Lafayette Park was cleared not because President Trump would momentarily be making his way on foot from the White House to St. John’s Episcopal Church but because the protesters in the park had attacked law enforcement officers. I guess he deleted  it. 

There is no way President Trump would have made that walk if the area had not been secured to reasonably assure his safety.

Hello,

Thank you for reaching out to our Customer Service department with your delivery concern.  

The accurate delivery of our contracted products is of utmost importance to us.  We have investigated this incident and wanted to inform you of our findings.

We have determined that the product being delivered recently had some inaccuracies.  With this product, we receive material from two different clients, combine the material without adulteration, and deliver, per our contracted terms. We've now traced the source of the inaccuracies to one of the suppliers - the Joe Biden for President campaign office. 

As you surely know, both major campaigns have similar stated policies towards domestic terrorism, and ANTIFA, in particular.  

We've spoken with our supplier - the Joe Biden for President campaign  and they have offered this apology we wish to extend to you:

***

" We are deeply sorry the information we received via our Joe 30330 Tip Line proved to be a hoax.  We assure you we will seek out those responsible for this inaccurate information, line them up against a wall, and shoot them in a leg.  If they are found to be repeat offenders, they will be shot in both legs.  The Joe Biden for President campaign promises to do better in the future. "

Joe has a personal message for anyone who tries to hoax the campaign office in the future: "You jackknifed the wrong turnip truck, ya diesel-pumpin' pony-soldier."

***

We have now closed this delivery concern service ticket.  Thank you for contacting the Customer Service department.  Have an excellent day.

random thoughts

i don't know a lot about that guy off the field but kaepernick probably had good intentions with less than "thoughtful" execution

in the charity fundraising world working with a stadium in the concession is gold

the reason (here anyway) that a beer cost ten dollars at the stadium is because about half of that goes to the charity staffing it

there's an ecosystem around big sporting events, from the peeps selling beer, soda, water and peanuts walking up and down the stadium stairs, the people selling other trinkets, shirts, etc. to the folks in the parking lot selling stuff (probably parking too)

it doesn't stop there, local sports bars offer food and transport to and from the games and watch parties

i'm sure i'm glossing over some other vendors but i think you can get the idea

his actions probably have an unintended effect on a lot of people depending on that income

lots of emotions around the act too (some people like veterans probably see kneeling during the anthem as a sign of disrespect)

if i was trying to influence someone to consider my point of view i'd do a couple of things:

first don't insult/demean/disrespect them

second make my best case by being inclusive (police violence affects everyone)

third partner with human rights groups, celebrities, etc and call a news/press conference

fourth isolate/focus the concern (get to the point) and offer to engage those highly influential and directly involved (police chiefs, mayors, politicians, etc.)

fifth offer solutions and further dialog

off the top of my head but i'm sure we could come up with more suggestions

regards

 
I generally agree that you want to sway people to your side. But this issue had been and continues to be a festering would. There have been many peaceful calm aplogetic attempts to engage in a dialogue and the problem persisted.  He felt he had an opportunity to use his platform for a louder message. 

Initially he sat for the anthem. After a conversation with a fellow player who was a veteran Marine he switched to the kneel to show respect. I won't try to speak for everyone who didn't receive the message, but I will say there are many who would never receive this message no matter how it was delivered. 

Here are police now kneeling with protesters:



respect and solidarity. Why is it that is respectful, but not from Kaepernick?  Could he have done things better? - sure. Would it have mattered? -  I doubt it. We are here today because we (collectively) were not willing to listen to the message he was sending and chose to quibble over the delivery.

So will we hear the message this time?  Or will we continue to complain that it is not presented in the manner we are willing to hear it?  How loud do you think it will get before we hear?
