President Obama, The Honorable Elijah Cummings would be proud of you.

Hate Crime v Domestic Terrorism 101 Spicy Files

In depth legal terminology.


In the coming days you will hear/see a lot of Cable News pundits using vernacular such as: hate crime, domestic terrorist/terrorism. The short answer is these two terms are not interchangeable nor should they be conflated. At all relevant times I will embed original data sources, as with standard practice I will primarily pull data from the DOJ, FBI, DHS, Congress and GPO (for federal statutes) and Congressional Reports.
The easiest way to explain a Federal Hate Crime - generally speaking itís predicated by hatred and/or bigotry based on race, religion or sexual orientation.
Iíve taken the liberty of placing them in chronological order, starting with the first Federal Hate Crime statute, which President Lyndon Johnson signed into law in 1967. Itís colloquially known as the Civil Rights Act. Accordingly the following statues:

Kamala Harris is kicking ass and taking names!!

I love that woman. Every single question is answered with a direct answer. More than once I have clapped my hands or stopped in my tracks to listen and watch her.

Steve Daines proposed bill adding citizenship question...

I wish there was snow to shovel to lower my BP.

This isn't good. He is hitting out at all of us. Sorry for the ad capture.


I have something I need to bitch about regarding Elizabeth Warren and the DNA test. Not EW.

How many people have taken DNA tests recently? How many people have gone to ancestry dot com to search out their roots? How many people claim to have First People blood in their veins to find out they do not?

She did what many of us have thought about or done. I have chased my ancestry back to the 1400's.

She put her money where her mouth was and shut his ass down. What the hell is the big deal?

End of bitch.

Edit: Please see my #7 post below. She did have First People markers.

If you are looking for something to watch on Hulu I have 2 suggestions

Proven Innocent
For the People

The title of the first one is self explanatory and the second one is about the federal system with both prosecutors and defenders in it. Both have been hitting current events.

Gianforte and Zinke's Dirty Secret...

Ryan Zinke has joined the board of a gold mining company, at $100,000 a year. This probably means heíll be making between $5-$10,000 an hour for his ďworkĒ of sitting in on a few board meetings, retreats and calls. Good work if you can get it.

According to Forbes magazine Greg Gianforte took outsourcing to new levels and made a fortune helping companies lay off American workers


And GG wants to be the Governor.

"When Are Presidential Running Mates Chosen?"


Romney/Ryan 2 weeks before the RNC convention
McCain/Palin days before RNC convention
Obama/Biden 2 days before DNC convention
Bush/Cheney 1 week before RNC convention

The list goes on. I wonder why are we even thinking about this when we have at least another year before the candidates decide and another couple of months before they tell us.
