Great news! Nobody was murdered when a big crowd of Black Lives Matter protesters got shot at by three white guys in Minneapolis last night. Five people were injured, with one having surgery on his stomach overnight, but nobody died. And that's it for good news, all, because this story is rage.

First up: Above are the dudes Black Lives Matter protesters say came to their Minneapolis police demonstration -- and shot them. They identify themselves as "Saiga Marine" and "Blight Power Black Powder Ranger."


"We're gonna go see what these dindus are up to," they say, and you excuse yourself real quick to look up "dindu" on the Internet and find that it means an "innocent African American who din du nothin'," haw haw haw, great one, 4chan assholes!

Perhaps you've noticed that the date on that video is Nov. 20; that is because the BLM folks say these dudes showed up for several days in a row, "acting shady."

Second up: after these guys fired on the large crowd, hitting five people -- right outside a police precinct, and then getting away -- the cops moseyed over and MACED THE PROTESTERS.

At least, that's what the protesters say. The cops who just last week said the protesters maced themselves (in a different macing "incident") declined to make the same assertion last night to the New York Times, perhaps out of fear the reporter would just look at them silently, letting the ridiculous assertion hang in the air.

This is from Nov. 18:

Stop macing yourself! Stop macing yourself!

And this is from this morning:

Some witnesses said on Twitter that they had been sprayed with Mace by the police following the shooting, including an organizer who was trying to film the aftermath, Ms. Noor said. The police did not respond to that accusation in a news release, and a police spokesman declined to answer questions beyond what was written in the statement.

Huh.

That's all this week (hopefully) in #AllLivesMatter.

Yeah, that's definitely a repurposed animatronic Hillary (YouTube)

A whole bunch of protests were held today against the fake "president's" fake "emergency" declaration, with people turning out in cold crappy weather to call attention to the general nastiness of the guy who claims he absolutely had to do that declaration that wasn't necessary. Organizers with MoveOn.org said over 250 rallies were planned nationwide. So far, the national State Of Emergency doesn't appear to have caused any of the rallies to be cancelled, despite the very real possibility that terrified Honduran refugees fleeing violence in Central America might suddenly show up and ask for asylum.

Are there still actions taking place in your area? Check at MoveOn!

WHAT. IS. PAUL. MANAFORT. HIDING?

Before Manafort pleaded guilty and signed up as a cooperating witness who didn't actually cooperate, we wrote this:

We have always kind of figured that Paul Manafort is the one who knows the whole Trump-Russia conspiracy story. He was the first big fish indicted, and they hit him for A LOT. Also note that just about all the other prosecutions that have come from the Mueller investigation so far have been farmed out by Mueller to different jurisdictions. Manafort, on the other hand, Mueller has kept squarely in his office. There has to be a reason for that.

Perhaps it's because, as this Josh Marshall podcast suggests, Paul Manafort, a foreign agent who worked for Oleg Deripaska, AKA Putin's favorite oligarch, and who got sideways financially with Deripaska, was literally sent into the Trump campaign by the Kremlin to do its dirty work. Perhaps the Steele Dossier is right when it suggests that the entire Trump-Russia election-stealing conspiracy was run by Manafort on the Trump side, and that others like (perhaps!) Michael Cohen only had to take over when Manafort's shit started to stink and the news media started reporting on his weird-ass Russian connections in the summer of 2016.

If it's possible, we are beginning to suspect it may be even worse than that.

On Friday, special counsel Robert Mueller issued his sentencing recommendations for Manafort, after DC district court Judge Amy Berman Jackson ruled conclusively that the shady motherfucker very intentionally lied and blew up his cooperating agreement. Because Manafort defaulted, Mueller is no longer bound to recommend that Manafort's sentence be reduced, and is free to throw the book right at Manafort's face. HARD.

And that is what Mueller did! To be clear, the sentencing memo is harsh.
