Republicans love the Mississippi senator who joked about lynching because she's got a 'good heart'

Republicans across the country have decided to double down on their support for Cindy Hyde-Smith, the U.S. senator from Mississippi who made a disgusting and racist remark about lynching on the campaign trail earlier this month. Hyde-Smith is running against Democrat Mike Espy, a black man, to keep the seat she was appointed to when former Senator Thad Cochran resigned. She was at a campaign event when she joked that she’d be on the “front row” of a “public hanging,” if one of her supporters (the very person who organized the event) were to invite her.  After receiving much backlash (after all, it’s a completely gross and inappropriate thing to say, especially given Mississippi’s history of lynching), Hyde-Smith refused to apologize. And her party is not only standing behind her; it’s decided to throw more money into the ongoing race, now moved into a runoff between Espy and Hyde-Smith that will take place on Tuesday, Nov. 27. According to The Hill, Republicans are airing TV ads beginning on Thursday, as well as looking to bring in Donald Trump in order to get Hyde-Smith over the finish line and maintain their majority in the Senate. Of course, they are also gaslighting Mississippians by insisting that she’s a “good person,” even though we know perfectly well what kind of person would say this sort of thing. At a press conference on Monday, Mississippi Governor Phil Bryant said this:  «I could tell you all of us in public life have said things on occasion that we could've phrased better,» Bryant said. «But I know this woman, I know her heart and I knew it when I appointed her. I know it now. She meant no offense by that statement. There was nothing in her heart of ill-will.»

White House insiders leak disturbing reports of Trump’s increasingly erratic, rage-fueled behavior

Campaign Action Vanity Fair’s Gabriel Sherman is out with a rundown of increasingly off-the-rails Trump tidbits as relayed by White House insiders and a Republican briefed on the decision to cancel Trump’s attendance at an event commemorating the 100th anniversary of the 1918 armistice that brought an end to World War I. After seeing glaring headlines around the world that were critical of Trump’s absence and widespread speculation he bailed on the ceremony because his unusually coiffed hair won’t stand up to rain, Trump lashed out, blaming the Secret Service, saying they told him Marine One can’t fly in the rain (it absolutely can) and traveling by presidential limo was too big of a security risk.  Welp, not so, an unnamed Republican tells Vanity Fair. It was all about that hair.  One Republican briefed on the internal discussions said the real reason Trump did not want to go was because there would be no tent to stand under. “He was worried his hair was going to get messed up in the rain,” the source said. “[John] Bolton and everyone was telling him this was a big mistake.” A former administration official said Trump hates being outside in wet conditions. “What I honestly think? He woke up and said, ‘It’s pouring rain. This is a joke and I’m not doing this.’” Joke’s on us: This clown is in the White House. But, Sherman also reports that Trump is too scared to fire John Kelly because he’s concerned Kelly will campaign against him in 2020, and that firing Kelly ally Kirstjen Nielsen is a backdoor move to get Kelly to quit. Because Donald Trump is a coward and a weak, weak president.

To deal with overcrowding, ICE wants to make some detainees sleep on 'human-sized pieces of plastic'

Federal immigration officials are detaining a record number of people, so to cope with overcrowding, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) is in the market for “the bare minimum,” Mother Jones reports. “The Norix Stack-A-Bunk is a bed. Barely. One vendor describes it as a plastic ‘bed platform’ that is ‘resistant to blood, vinegar, urine, feces, salt solution and chlorine solution.’ It’s essentially an inverted plastic tub, eight inches high, designed so overcrowded jails can comply with court decisions that block them from making inmates sleep on the floor.” There’s overcrowding in facilities because ICE is making it that way. The agency said that as of late October, it had a record 44,631 people in federal custody. That’s 4,000 more than Congress had budgeted for, and ICE is refusing to say where the extra cash is coming from. Now officials are looking for more than 1,200 of these “beds”—“essentially human-sized pieces of plastic”—to put in five detentions centers, instead of, oh, not overcrowding facilities by not arresting people who have nothing on their record in the first place. There’s already some blowback to this possible plan, with Victoria Lopez of the American Civil Liberties Union tweeting that ICE has already been down this road before. “Not a great idea, ICE (among many),” she wrote. “Maybe you forgot that we sued you over atrocious conditions and overcrowding and use of these plastic ‘boats’ in [San Diego] back in 2007. Punch line: it's unconstitutional to subject ppl to overcrowding and resulting unsafe, dangerous conditions.” And yet, ICE wants to get even more bloated, since the agency is “asking for an unprecedented 52,000 beds in its 2019 budget request, though it is highly unlikely to get that many.” Unbelievable, when ICE can barely handle the detainees it already has. During a recent surprise visit to a privately run prison in California, inspectors found nooses hanging in 15 of the 20 cells they checked. While some detainees told inspectors “the braided sheets can be easily unfurled to temporarily create privacy within the cell,” they constitute a suicide risk nonetheless. Nope, nope, nope. ICE needs a check all right, and not the money kind, but the oversight kind.

What blue wave? Trump mini-me Mike Pence declares midterms 'a great win' for Republicans

When Donald Trump moves his water bottle, Vice President Mike Pence moves his water bottle. When Trump says the midterms were nearly «a complete victory,» Pence also sees «a great win for our side.»  «We were very encouraged by the results. We thought Tuesday's midterm elections were a great win for our side making history in the senate, electing some great governors around the country,» he told NBC News correspondent Vaughn Hillyard in an interview during an overseas trip to Singapore. But the thing that really sets Pence's absurd musings apart is that more than a week of election results have poured in since Trump tried to sell his sham narrative to the nation the day after the election.  There's no doubt now that Democrats trounced Republicans in the House while the GOP will be lucky to net even two seats in the Senate. More specifically, the blue-ish Midwestern states that delivered the presidency to Trump swung back hard for Democrats. And at the state level, Democrats flipped at least seven governorships, six state legislative chambers, and 300-plus state legislative seats. Trump's been sulking ever since, retreating from public view as it became crystal clear that voters last week pointedly rejected him and the GOP agenda nationwide. But not sunny Mike Pence. His willful ignorance persists more than a week out.  «We didn't really see that blue wave in the House of Representatives come our way,» he told NBC. Good god, some 40 of the GOP's House seats got washed away in the blue wave Pence «didn't really see.» Here's to hoping Republicans are equally as successful in 2020.

Pence scolds jailers of journalists while Team Trump works to protect those that murder them

Since Donald Trump is still pouting in the White House, it's fallen on toady Mike Pence to attend the international summits that Trump just skipped out on. Part of his job is to convince leaders in Myanmar to respect the rights of the free press, but rest assured he's not taking the job seriously and there's not a damn person on the planet who thinks he is. Foreign-policy analysts say Trump’s persistent attacks on news outlets, combined with his embrace of authoritarian leaders such as Russian President Vladi­mir Putin and North Korea’s Kim Jong Un, have emboldened repressive governments to ignore U.S. pressure. Just to paint the picture here, Mike Pence is off lecturing human rights abusers about the necessity of the free press while 1.) his administration flagrantly and openly lies about the actions of a member of the U.S. press, using those lies as pretext for barring him from White House reporting and 2.) the Trump administration is caught offering up a trade to Turkey: You agree to play down your concerns about the U.S. resident journalist tortured and murdered by the Saudis, and we'll deliver up a U.S. resident that you have been itching to torture and/or murder yourself. So no, Mike Pence doesn't have a stitch of credibility on the worldwide human rights scene, not when his officemates back home are probing whether they can defuse the crisis caused by the murder of one dissenter by giving the other side a torture-worthy dissenter of their own. Mike Pence is a worldwide laughing stock; Mike Pence will be lucky if he gets through his not-Trump trip without having a shoe store thrown in his general direction. The more central problem, of course, is that Donald Trump is getting people killed. His repeated declarations that the free press is «the enemy of the people» is becoming a rallying cry for other authoritarian shouters peeved at receiving objective scrutiny. His team's plain frustration at the thought of having to hold the Saudi government to account for a murder, and their frantic efforts to avoid doing so, are another clear signal to future assassins that These Things Will Pass, so long as there's something in it for your good friend Donald Trump.

So much for 'all politics are local' and 'it's the economy, stupid'—it's actually just Trump

You're either with Trump or against him. That was the main lesson of 2018. The economy—of the much-touted political axiom “it's the economy, stupid”—is humming along at a decent clip. But it did virtually nothing to save Trump and his eager Republican enablers from the many Americans, especially college-educated women, who would have crawled over glass to vote against him. Oh, and about that other axiom, “all politics is local,” that pretty much got washed away in the aftermath of last Tuesday too. First of all,  incumbency did not help Senate Democrats much in the red states, where conservative voters pretty definitively ousted Sens. Claire McCaskill, Joe Donnelly, and Heidi Heitkamp in Missouri, Indiana, and North Dakota. Also, as CNN's Ron Brownstein notes, the votes of people of similar race, gender, and socio-economic levels tended to trend similarly across the nation.  Though some important regional differences remained, voters who shared the same characteristics or resided in similar places largely voted the same way no matter what state they lived in. In virtually every state, Democrats last Tuesday displayed a clear advantage in densely populated, culturally and racially diverse white-collar metropolitan areas, while Republicans relied on elevated margins in the preponderantly white, religiously traditional, smaller places beyond them. In essence, the election largely broke down along the lines of how much certain demographic groups either opposed or supported Trump. The good news for Democrats is that 55 to 60 percent of Americans consistently disapprove of Trump's job performance and even more often disapprove of him personally. The bad news for the nation is that Trump is simply increasing and accelerating political polarization.  And the trick for both parties in coming elections will be finding a few but important opportunities to break through the trend and become exceptions to the new rule that “all politics are national.”

FCC approval of Europe’s Galileo satellite signals may give your phone’s GPS a boost

The FCC's space-focused meeting today had actions taken on SpaceX satellites and orbital debris reduction, but the decision most likely to affect users has to do with Galileo. No, not the astronomer — the global positioning satellite constellation put in place by the E.U. over the last few years. It's now legal for U.S. phones to use, and a simple software update could soon give your GPS signal a major bump.

Walter Gehlen, Director of Art Düsseldorf, on the City’s Unique Cultural Scene

At Art Dusseldorf, more than half of the participating galleries represent Germany and the Benelux countries. The fair mixes regional pride — catering explicitly to collectors within the territory — with a global appeal for those interested in Dusseldorf’s art scene and neighboring institutions in Cologne, Bonn, Essen and Bochum. Being held November 16-18 in Areal Bohler, a former steel factory converted into a convention center in 2012, Art Dusseldorf has increased its exhibition space by 10 percent and welcomes 40 new exhibitors for its second edition. There are 91 galleries showcasing Post-War and Contemporary art; the youngest of them, all founded after September 2008, are presented in the dedicated Post Lehman section at reduced booth prices. Walter Gehlen, the director of Art Dusseldorf, is a native of the city and he knows the region well; he was previously director of ART.FAIR Cologne. BlouinShop spoke with Gehlen about instating sculpture long-term in the city, the must-try blood-red local herb liqueur and regional cathedral comparisons.How long have you been living in Dusseldorf?I was born and raised in Dusseldorf. After school, I moved a few kilometers south to the neighboring city of Cologne to study and have lived there since. The two cities are equally important to me. How has the local art scene evolved in the past decade?The Rhineland has been attracting collectors with top-class Contemporary art since the 1960s. The Cologne gallery owner Michael Werner founded Georg Baselitz's career during his time, while in 1964 the artist Konrad Lueg — with his famous colleagues Gerhard Richter and Sigmar Polke — showed their legendary front garden exhibition, before Lueg (a gallery owner named Konrad Fischer) helped artists such as Carl Andre, Richard Long and Bruce Nauman become world-famous. The Dusseldorf gallery owner Hans Mayer first brought Andy Warhol to the Rhineland in 1979 and introduced him to Josef Beuys, creating an axis of artistic exchange between New York and the Rhineland. Since 2004, the private museum Langen Foundation has enriched the local art scene with great exhibitions. Gil Bronner, from the Philara Collection, has been presenting inspiring exhibitions for 10 years. The Julia Stoschek Collection, opened in 2007, offers a fantastic and unique collection of international video art (Stoschek has been a member of the exhibition committee of MoMA in New York), and the artist Thomas Schutte has set up his own monument with the sculpture hall that opened in 2016. Dusseldorf’s galleries have always been significant for Contemporary art and continue to be today: the mixture of players from institutional and private sphere are a good balance, encouraging younger generations to get involved with art.How does the local arts scene dialogue with the global scene?Art Dusseldorf has positioned itself at the center of one of Western Europe’s most vibrant regions. The region’s cultural map is diverse, and most internationally renowned German artists have their roots in the city of Dusseldorf.Who is your favorite local Dusseldorf artist you think more people should know of?It’s really hard to name one favorite, because there are so many talented artists in Dusseldorf, and I have been following the careers of different generations. The Academy of Arts has always played a major role as a breeder. The “Modell-Bauer” from the ’80s with artists like Thomas Schutte or the “Becher School” in the ’90s — named after Bernd and Hilla Becher who have been teaching for 20 years at the academy and given birth to a certain photographic vein in Contemporary art with Gursky, Struth, Ruff or Hofer — became a trademark for the Dusseldorf art scene.Many of those artists are still living in the city. From 2000 onwards, the academy has become more open to different media. What are your “must-see” recommendations for the city?I’d say Kunststammlung NRW, with both collections K20 Grabbeplatz and K21 Standehaus; the Museum Kunstpalast, with a special exhibition of Tony Cragg’s sculptures in the Ehrenhof; the Langen Foundation, which is presenting a group exhibition in cooperation with the Burger Collection Hong Kong; the Julia Stoschek Collection, with the most amazing collection of video art, and the Sammlung Philara, which is an exceptional, atmospheric venue and supporter of local up-and-coming artists.What is the most overrated thing people advise visitors to check out when they're in town?Well, as a Cologne resident, I have to admit that the St. Lambertus Church cannot compete with the Cologne Cathedral. What would be on your agenda if you had a free morning or afternoon in Dusseldorf?Depending on the weather: A walk through the park between Kunstpalast and Kunstakademie on the way to Klee’s, the Kunstsammlung NRW’s cafe and restaurant, which is always good for breakfast and lunch with interesting people. What restaurants would you recommend, and what makes them unique?Dusseldorf has the largest Japanese community in Europe, so Japanese food is a big thing. I love Nagaya, if you want to go out for fine dining. A cozy place just for sushi is Kikaku.Phoenix, within the Dreischeibenhaus, is great: architecturally appealing, with a diverse menu. Where would you head for the best shopping?I recommend Konigsallee and Carlsplatz, if you are looking for a great market and little charming shops around it. What’s an authentic item you could only buy locally or regionally?Killepitsch, an excellent premium herbal liqueur, pralines from Konditorei Heinemann and I recommend a visit to the Brabus flagship on Konigsallee. Where are the ideal spots to see live music?Since I was a child I’ve been going to the Tonhalle with my parents, and I still really enjoy it.Where would you recommend people stay when they visit?  I would recommend the InterContinental nearby; otherwise the 25 Hours Hotel, in Flingern, is known for its vibrant gallery scene. Do you have a favorite book depicting the region, or an author who writes about the region in an especially evocative way?“Ideen. Das Buch le Grand” (Datum) from Heinrich Heine, who also was born in Dusseldorf and is one of the first serious feuilletonists. What are you most looking forward to about this edition of Art Dusseldorf?I am very much looking forward to this year’s sculpture installations throughout the fair, featuring large-scale works by the artists Meuser, Erwin Wurm and Tony Cragg. Exhibiting for their first time at Art Dusseldorf, Eigen + Art from Berlin will present a selection of artists whose works have been exclusively produced for the fair, including Tom Anholt, Martin Groß, Melora Kuhn, Lada Nakonechna, Kristina Schuldt, Carsten Sievers and Mirjam Volker. Moreover, I am looking forward to the curator’s talk with Hans-Ulrich Obrist and an extensive VIP program, which explores the fair’s strong connection with the region.Having started in 2017, what is something you wanted to do differently in 2018?We would like each issue of Art Dusseldorf to have its own signature. This time we focus on sculpture and will present three large-scale sculpture stations with works by significant artists. We have also co-initiated the installation of four works by Tony Cragg in the Ehrenhof, Museum Kunstpalast, beyond the duration of the fair.You developed the Post-Lehman section to support younger galleries. Is there a particular emerging gallery or artist you’re especially excited about?I am excited about the section itself because it emphasizes the courage of these galleries, who followed their passion despite the financial crash in September 2008.  p.p1 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; text-align: justify; font: 10.0px 'Times New Roman'} p.p2 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; text-align: justify; font: 10.0px 'Times New Roman'; min-height: 11.0px} span.s1 {letter-spacing: -0.3px} span.s2 {letter-spacing: -0.6px} https://www.blouinartinfo.com/              Founder: Louise Blouin

Despite parting ways with Anthony, there are no immediate plans for him to be placed on waivers, Wojnarowski reports. The Rockets will allow him to remain on the roster, giving his reps the chance to explore possible teams for the 12-time NBA All-Star to join. Anthony, 34, is in his 16th NBA season. He appeared in just 10 games with the Rockets after signing a free-agent deal to join the team in the summer, averaging 13.4 points and 5.4 rebounds per contest.
