#RacistGOP trends on Twitter as Republicans stay silent on Donald Trump’s racist attack

Westlake Legal Group VE7tK8ixl3CxVL9aCJUBXVnsUw1bVDDHOD_RVEJhNKs #RacistGOP trends on Twitter as Republicans stay silent on Donald Trump's racist attack r/politics

Yes, I get the whole “they’ve always been racist” and “they like that he can shout the quiet parts” arguments, and I agree. However, the GOP is destroying their “brand” by acquiescing to Trump. They have put all their chips on being able to win using only elderly, white, and rural voters, and even with gerrymandering, voter suppression, and Russian assistance that’s not a viable long term strategy when those demographics are shrinking. I’m just flabbergasted that as a party they are letting this happen. I know it’s too early to count chickens, and the American public has ridiculously short memories, but I truly think the GOP will be a fringe party in 4-8 years.

Cubs get catcher Maldonado from Royals for LHP Montgomery

With their All-Star catcher sidelined, the Chicago Cubs quickly found some experienced help behind the plate.

The NL Central leaders acquired Martín Maldonado in a trade with Kansas City on Monday night that sent left-hander Mike Montgomery to the Royals.

Cubs president of baseball operations Theo Epstein announced the deal following Chicago’s 6-3 loss to Cincinnati — adding that top catcher Willson Contreras was going on the 10-day injured list with a strain to the arch area of his right foot.

The 32-year-old Maldonado, a Gold Glove winner in 2017 with the Angels, was batting .227 with six homers and 17 RBIs in 74 games for the struggling Royals this season. The Cubs will be his fifth team in nine major league seasons, and Epstein expects him to provide a strong defensive presence.

“He can really receive,” Epstein said. “He can really throw. He’s caught playoff games. He’s handled some of the best pitchers in the game. He’s a favorite of pitchers to throw to. He calls a great game.”

Contreras’ injury initially was not deemed serious and he was expected to start Tuesday, but an MRI showed enough damage to warrant shutting down the 27-year-old. Epstein said Contreras should improve quickly with rest and the club hopes he’ll be ready to play once eligible to return from a backdated stint on the IL.

“Our medical staff feels like if he were to try to play on it, that he’d be risking exacerbating the injury and turning it into something long term,” Epstein said. “So we have to get ahead of it, take it out of Willie’s hands and get him off his feet.”

The Cubs, holding a slim lead in their crowded division, weren’t sure if Maldonado would arrive at Wrigley Field in time for Tuesday night’s game against the Reds. He was pulled by the Royals from Monday night’s home game against the Chicago White Sox for a pinch-hitter, backup catcher Cam Gallagher, in the sixth inning.

Maldonado is a .220 career hitter with 57 homers and 210 RBIs in 686 games.

Montgomery, 30, is 1-2 with a 5.67 ERA in 20 relief appearances for the Cubs this year, and was 14-17 with three saves in 119 games for Chicago over four seasons.

Montgomery got the final out in Game 7 of the 2016 World Series at Cleveland, ending the Cubs’ 108-year championship drought.

“You can’t talk about his contributions without talking about him getting the last out in that World Series that changed everybody’s lives,” Epstein said. “Beyond that, I thought he started coming into his own.”

Montgomery is expected to get a chance to start with the Royals, who drafted him in 2008. He was traded to Tampa Bay four years later with Wil Myers and Jake Odorizzi, and made his big league debut with Seattle in 2015.

The deal with the Rays involving Montgomery was one of the most significant in Royals history because it netted pitchers James Shields and Wade Davis.

Shields won 27 games over two strong seasons with the Royals and helped them capture the 2014 AL pennant. Davis blossomed into a lights-out reliever in Kansas City and was a critical member of the 2015 World Series championship team.

Royals general manager Dayton Moore said the club intends to use Montgomery in the rotation as a replacement for Homer Bailey, who was dealt to Oakland on Sunday.

“He clearly wants to start,” Moore said about Montgomery. “He’s kind of been used in a very versatile role over there. He’s pitched in the middle, he’s pitched situational — it’s just a good opportunity to get him back and put him in the rotation.

“We’re going to have to stretch him out,” the GM added, “but the plan is for him to start on Friday (at Cleveland). Once we get him here and talk to him and analyze it a little more, we’ll figure out how many pitches he goes.”

Moore said catcher Meibrys Viloria will be called up from Double-A Northwest Arkansas to replace Maldonado on the roster. Viloria is batting .264 in 63 games.

Moore appreciated the effort this year from Maldonado, signed to a $2.5 million, one-year contract as a free agent to take over the starting job from injured All-Star Salvador Pérez, who is sidelined for the entire season.

“We can’t say enough about how he competed, the tone he set for our pitching staff, the way he studies, the way he prepares,” Moore said. “He’s played some of his best baseball here the last month.”

What first-hand government reports say about conditions at migrant detention centers

USA TODAY assembled accounts from government officials as well as pediatricians who have toured border facilities. Here’s what they said.

The country is embroiled in a furious debate over the conditions of U.S. immigration detention facilities, as violence and poverty in Central America sends many refugees and migrants northward. 

So far in 2019, Border Patrol agents have taken roughly 600,000 migrants into custody. Seven children have died in U.S. custody since last year.

A reporter traveling with Vice President Mike Pence during a recent tour of an all-male detention center in Texas described a horrendous stench and said nearly 400 men were housed in sweltering cages so crowded it would have been impossible for all of them to lie down. The Border Patrol supervisor who gave Pence the tour admitted that the men in custody hadn’t taken a shower in 10 to 20 days.

After his visit, Pence said: “It was frankly heartbreaking, as parents, to talk to young children who told us of having walked two and three months … to cross into our country.” 

He also defended the facilities: “Every family that I spoke with told me they were being well cared for.”

Many media reports, including the USA TODAY Network’s El Paso Times, have described conditions at the detention facilities as nightmarish.

President Donald Trump has said media accounts of the detention centers are “exaggerated” and that they are “beautifully run” and “clean.” “Great reviews!” he tweeted.

The Department of Homeland Security’s Inspector-General, however, called the overcrowded conditions “a ticking time bomb.”

Here, USA TODAY has assembled accounts only from the government’s own reports as well as that of pediatricians who have toured border facilities first-hand:

KU’s Miles figures he’s back where he belongs: On sideline

Les Miles sat for more than hour, a Kansas pin on his left lapel and his LSU national championship ring on his right hand, answering wave after wave of often repetitive questions as he closes in on his return to coaching — and the Big 12 — with the long-suffering Jayhawks.

The session started with whether the one-game suspension for running back Pooka Williams in a domestic case was too short, and ended with the 65-year-old reminiscing about leaving the Dallas Cowboys for Oklahoma State and his first shot as a head coach nearly two decades ago.

In between, the theme was pretty consistent. The 2011 national coach of the year believes he’ll soon be back where he belongs after 2½ years away: on the sideline.

“I think it’s an enjoyment and a realization how much I am a football coach and how much I enjoy going to the sideline with my team,” Miles said as Big 12 media days opened Monday.

With that thought, Miles tried to peek through the crowd of reporters, looking for one of the tunnels at the home of the Dallas Cowboys because he realized he was on the same field where eight years earlier he led the Tigers into a season opener against Oregon.

“That moment, just kind of something that I fall back on, how much I enjoy taking the field with a team that was ready to play,” said Miles, whose team beat Oregon and was 13-0 before losing to Alabama in the BCS championship game to end the 2011 season.

The title came four years earlier with a BCS win over Ohio State. Nearly a decade later, Miles was fired at LSU after a 2-2 start in 2016, having weathered years of criticism that his offense was too old-fashioned for the pass-happy college game.

Now he finds himself in the pass-happiest conference among the Power Five leagues, where outscoring opponents has often been the trick to winning the title, as Oklahoma has shown while winning a record four straight Big 12 championships.

“If we need to throw the ball to win the game, we want to throw the ball to win the game,” said Miles, who signed a five-year contract worth $15.1 million before performance incentives. “If we need to run the ball to win the game, we’re going to run the ball to win the game.”

The toughest questions for Miles were about the focal point of that running game: Williams. The sophomore was recently reinstated after being away from the team seven months following his arrest in a domestic battery case involving an 18-year-old woman.

The suspension for the season opener Aug. 31 against Indiana State has been criticized as insufficient after the Kansas student Williams was dating accused him of punching her in the stomach and grabbing her throat.

Miles said it was important for him to stay out of the investigation by law enforcement and the university’s code of conduct proceedings. Williams, who ran for 1,125 yards and seven touchdowns as a freshman, reached a domestic violence diversion agreement with prosecutors.

“He’s been remorseful,” Miles said. “He’s learned from this experience, as has our team. We’re thankful to have him back, and, again, no violence against a woman is OK. I did not make this decision, but I stand by it and see it as a right one.”

Miles’ return to the Big 12 is similar to his first stint in the league, starting in 2001. Oklahoma State had just one winning record in 12 years before he arrived, then went to bowl games the last three of Miles’ four seasons there.

Kansas has gone 18-90 while dumping three head coaches since Mark Mangino was fired two years after leading the Jayhawks to an Orange Bowl win and a 12-1 record in 2007 — the same season Miles won his national title.

Miles, who inherited a strong program from Nick Saban at LSU, went 114-34 with the Tigers, winning at least 10 games in seven of his 11 full seasons. Oh, and safety Mike Lee has noticed that ring.

“He wears it every day,” said Lee, a senior. “Looking at the ring, I want to get me a national championship ring. But before we get to a national championship, we got to get to a bowl game.”

Miles couldn’t have scripted that answer any better, and the oldest head coach in the Big 12 believes he can get that process started, using the same energy that was so much a part of the quirky sideline behavior at his previous two stops.

“If it’s not the oldest coach, then what is the alternative? I think I’ll take being the oldest coach,” he said.

And if he seems as if he’s slowed down a bit at retirement age, while taking over a football program dwarfed by its basketball counterpart ?

“I can only tell you that my focus is clean,” Miles said. “My preparation is early to late. I think this Kansas team will be difficult to reckon with should we stay on task.”

In other words, don’t sleep on Miles’ Jayhawks.

Clarke’s double-double leads Grizzlies to title

Memphis Grizzlies head coach Taylor Jenkins has yet to lead an official NBA game, but he’s bringing some hardware home to Beale Street.

Brandon Clarke had 15 points and 16 rebounds to lead the eighth-seeded Grizzlies to a 95-92 victory over the third-seeded Minnesota Timberwolves in the championship game of the NBA Summer League on Monday.

“It was a lot of fun, this is why I do what I do,” said Jenkins, the only NBA head coach to coach a summer league team. “I love to compete, love to teach and have a great group of guys on the court and our staff off the court. It was so much fun to work with them for 20 days. It’s a lot to do in a short amount of time. And to be able to win a championship is fun. I told the guys this morning when you have a chance to win a championship there’s nothing like it.”

Clarke, who was named overall MVP for the summer league, also had three blocks and four assists to earn the championship game MVP. He had four double-doubles in the tournament.

“I feel like I’ll just fit in perfectly (with Memphis) because his system and his culture is similar to what it was like at college at Gonzaga,” said Clarke. “It was just really fun playing for him. He was just a really great coach. Every day he was up to play hard and up to get us better. It was awesome playing for him.”

The Grizzlies, who led by as many as 17 points, led by only two after the three quarters, but got a boost from Grayson Allen, who scored 10 of his team-high 17 points in the second half and deflected the ball away to keep Minnesota from taking a last-second shot.

“He’s played in lots of big games, he’s just somebody that’s used to making those big shots, making those big plays,” Clarke said. “Adding him to the team is something that’s gonna be really big for us.”

Bruno Caboclo and Dusty Hannahs also had 15 points for the Grizzlies, while Tyler Harvey added 12 points and five assists.

Memphis tied its league-high 31 points for a quarter when it opened the game with a 31-19 edge after one, while its 56 first-half points were a new team-high for the 11-day event.

The Timberwolves, who went into the game as the lone undefeated team, clawed their way back into the game behind the hot hand of Kelan Martin, who drained three 3-pointers in the third quarter. Minnesota cut Memphis’ lead to one point six times.

“We tried to find a way to come back and we didn’t, we came up short,” Timberwolves coach Pablo Prigioni said. “Credit to them, they were better. They showed all tournament long, they fought to the end, so nothing we can ask more. It was a hell of a summer league.”

Martin led five Timberwolves in double figures, finishing with a game-high 19 points.

Jordan Murphy scored 14, Mitchell Creek had 13, Barry Brown Jr. chipped in 12 and Keita Bates-Diop finished with 10 for Minnesota.

ALL TOURNAMENT TEAM – Joining Clarke on the first team was New Orleans’ Nickeil Alexander-Walker, Brooklyn’s Jarrett Allen, Miami’s Kendrick Nunn and New York’s Mitchell Robinson. Fan favorite Rui Hahimura from Washington headlined the second team, and was joined by Toronto’s Chris Boucher, New Orleans’ Jaxson Hayes, Portland’s Anfernee Simons and San Antonio’s Lonnie Walker IV.

Kansas City Royals will extend protective netting at stadium

The Kansas City Royals are planning to extend the netting at Kauffman Stadium to better protect fans.

The decision comes after a young fan was struck by a hard-hit foul ball Sunday during the Royals’ game against the Detroit Tigers.

Spokesman Toby Cook told KSHB-TV the girl was kept at a hospital overnight for observation and expected to be released Monday.

“I didn’t get a good look at it but I think it was a mom and a little girl and what do you do when a ball’s coming in like that? It’s just hard to protect yourself. The best thing that I think Major League Baseball could do and we could do is extend the netting,” Royals manager Ned Yost said before Monday night’s game against the Chicago White Sox. “We don’t want any of our fans coming out and getting hurt. That’s the last thing we want. This is going to be a good thing when they get these nets extended.”

Cook said the club had commissioned a study on how to expand the netting before Sunday’s incident. The timing of extending the netting depends on engineering and design challenges. But he said more netting could be added before the season ends.

Following recommendations from Major League Baseball, the Royals in 2016 extended the netting from the outside edges of the dugouts and raised it behind home plate about 8 feet.

“You hate to say it, but I think since the popularity of cellphones, more people have gotten hit. Because they’re just not paying attention to every pitch like they did before,” Yost said. “It’s not everybody. Sometimes things happen. Sometimes you just can’t move.”

Westlake Legal Group  Netflix Cuts Controversial Suicide Scene From '13 Reasons Why'

A scene in the show 13 Reasons Why that had shown actress Katherine Langford’s character taking her own life has been edited out.

Richard Shotwell/Richard Shotwell/Invision/AP

Two years after it released the first season of the show 13 Reasons Why with a graphic suicide scene, Netflix has announced that it has edited it out.

The show is centered around the suicide of fictional teen Hannah Baker, and the first season’s finale shows her taking her own life. Several organizations, including the National Association of School Psychologists, raised concerns that it could serve to romanticize suicide for vulnerable teens.

“Our creative intent in portraying the ugly, painful reality of suicide in such graphic detail in Season 1 was to tell the truth about the horror of such an act, and make sure no one would ever wish to emulate it,” show creator Brian Yorkey said in a statement. “But as we ready to launch Season 3, we have heard concerns about the scene from Dr. Christine Moutier at the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention and others, and have agreed with Netflix to re-edit it.”

“No one scene is more important than the life of the show, and its message that we must take better care of each other,” he added. “We believe this edit will help the show do the most good for the most people while mitigating any risk for especially vulnerable young viewers.”

After some initial criticism, Netflix added a warning card to the beginning of the episode, alerting viewers that the episode contained “graphic depictions of suicide and violence.”

The show also has a website, 13reasonswhy.info, containing resources about suicide prevention. It contains videos of cast members discussing topics such as bullying, consent, depression, and how to talk with a teen about the series. The site also warns: “If you are struggling, this series may not be right for you or you may want to watch it with a trusted adult.”

The edited version, now on Netflix, shows Hannah looking at herself in the mirror, full of emotion. It then cuts to her parents finding her body in the bathroom and reacting to her death. The previous version was nearly three minutes long, according to The Hollywood Reporter, and shows her cutting her wrists with a razor blade.

Netflix’s decision has drawn praise from a number of suicide prevention advocates, such as American Association of Suicidology, American Foundation for Suicide Prevention, American School Counselor Association, Dr. Helen Hsu from Stanford, advocacy group Mental Health America, the Trevor Project and Dr. Rebecca Hedrick from Cedars-Sinai, according to THR.

“We support the decision to edit the scene in which Hannah takes her own life from 13 Reasons Why. There has been much debate about the series in the medical community,” they said in a joint statement, as THR reported. “But this positive change will ensure that 13 Reasons Why continues to encourage open conversation about mental health and suicide prevention — while also mitigating the risk for the most vulnerable teenage viewers.”

Ron Avi Astor at the University of Southern California, who studies adolescent bullying and mental health, discussed with NPR’s Anya Kamenetz how the images of self-harm on the show could impact teens.

Avi Astor told Kamenetz that the depiction could be contagious – but just for certain teens. “It’s not just that any random kid would see it and do it,” he said, but for a kid who was already thinking about suicide, it had the potential to influence their behavior.

If you or someone you know may be considering suicide, contact the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-8255 (En Español: 1-888-628-9454; Deaf and Hard of Hearing: 1-800-799-4889) or the Crisis Text Line by texting HOME to 741741.

Chris Evans Exposes ‘Painfully Transparent’ Reason For Trump’s Racist Attack

Westlake Legal Group 5b58283019000014035004e8 Chris Evans Exposes ‘Painfully Transparent’ Reason For Trump’s Racist Attack

“Avengers” star Chris Evans slammed President Donald Trump this week for writing a series of racist tweets attacking progressive Democratic lawmakers. 

On Sunday, Trump told several women of color serving in Congress to “go back” to their own countries and has since doubled down on those comments. 

“This is racist, Biff,” Evans wrote on Twitter, referring to Trump with the name of the “Back to the Future” bully.

Then, Evans called out the president for “wielding hate and racism” to manipulate his supporters, writing:

Evans, who played Captain America in the Marvel films, has been a steady Trump critic on Twitter. Earlier this month, he blasted Trump’s Independence Day rally with a July 4th message of his own, reminding Americans of the true meaning of the holiday: “courage in the face of tyranny.”
