Code Pink Protester Mobbed By Trump Supporters For ‘No Hate’ Banner

20 July 2016

Jodie Evans, a member of the activist group “Code Pink,” was holding a peace banner up at the RNC when Trump supporters covered/blocked it with an American flag. Cenk Uygur, Ben Mankiewicz (What The Flick?), John Iadarola (ThinkTank), and Ana Kasparian, hosts of The Young Turks, break it down. Tell us what you think in the comment section below.

“It’s not a Donald Trump rally without someone getting tossed out, and Tuesday’s vote at the Republican National Convention where Trump received the GOP presidential nomination was no exception.

During a speech by former brain surgeon Ben Carson, Code Pink co-founder Jodie Evans attempted to hold up a “No Racism. No Hatred” sign inside Quicken Loans Arena, only to be swarmed by security and Trump supporters.

Trump supporters were quick to jump in, with one older woman seen attempting to rip it from her hands. Others then surrounded her holding up American flags so that the her message, which they apparently found offensive, was not seen by CSPAN’s cameras.

One Trump fan was seen throwing his flag over her face and pulling her head backwards as he attempted to topple her.

Evans was then escorted from the arena by security.”

LIVE from the YouTube stage The Young Turks panel of Cenk Uygur, Ana Kasparian, John Iadarola, and Jimmy Dore break down Ted Cruz getting booed off the stage of the 2016 Republican National Convention.

The Republican National Convention staggered through its third day Wednesday in increasing political crisis, as Texas Senator Ted Cruz, the runner-up in the primary campaign, was heavily booed during his speech for refusing to endorse Republican nominee Donald Trump. Hanging over the convention was the threat of open violence against political opponents, combined with continued homilies to the police and calls for a vast expansion of war abroad: here.

In contrast to most of his speeches, Trump’s remarks on Thursday closely followed a prepared script, eschewing his characteristic stream-of-consciousness rambling. However, this change in form did not improve the logical coherence of Trump’s thought. Rather than laying out a coherent political program, his speech was a series of non-sequiturs, united mainly by their viciousness and the candidate’s own limitless self-obsession: here.

    Trump’s tax plan would cost taxpayers $10 billion



    It seems like Donald Trump has at least one policy idea as president that would benefit — Donald Trump.

    According to an analysis by Third Way , a Washington, D.C.-based think tank, Trump’s proposed elimination of the federal estate tax would be a $7.1 billion boon for his family. Along with proposed breaks on capital gains and income taxes, Trump’s plan would benefit mostly the wealthy and add $9.5 trillion to the national debt in 10 years.

    “His proposal would cut taxes at all income levels, although the largest benefits, in dollar and percentage terms, would go to the highest-income households,” The Urban-Brookings Tax Policy Center notes in its analysis . “The plan would reduce federal revenues by $9.5 trillion over its first decade before accounting for added interest costs or considering macroeconomic feedback effects.


    “The plan would improve incentives to work, save, and invest. However, unless it is accompanied by very large spending cuts, it could increase the national debt by nearly 80 percent of gross domestic product by 2036, offsetting some or all of the incentive effects of the tax cuts.”

    According to The Hill , the nonpartisan Urban-Brookings Tax Policy Center, the bill to tax payers for the break would be $10 trillion over 10 years.

    Trump has economic advisers working to reduce the cost of his tax plan but “have not explicitly said they were making any changes to the plan’s treatment of the estate tax,” the Hill reports.
