What does the progressive cause actually stand for?

Based on the recent events surrounding the inauguration of Donald Trump, it's clear that liberals are against anything and everything that Donald Trump stands for. Many thousands of trees were killed to produce the mass amount of paper required for liberals to pen their objections to his speech, his actions, and his general existence.


So as near as I can tell, you can clarify the new progressive platform based primarily on their objections to Trump, his ideals, and his dark, hateful, horrible, Nazi-like speech. So let's go through some of the prominent points made during his speech and the obvious progressive disagreement:

Power: 
Today's ceremony, however, has very special meaning because today, we are not merely transferring power from one administration to another or from one party to another, but we are transferring power from Washington, D.C. and giving it back to you, the people.
So, first and foremost, the progressive cause believes in the central power of Washington D.C. and pretty much rejects the notion that the "people" of the country should have control. After all, people are stupid. People voted for Donald Trump. Therefor people need to be guided and told what to believe and how to act. Therefore a strong "liberal" central government is necessary, because quite obviously, the American public is too stupid to know what's best for them and otherwise follow along.

Government failing:
At the center of this movement is a crucial conviction, that a nation exists to serve its citizens. Americans want great schools for their children, safe neighborhoods for their families, and good jobs for themselves. These are just and reasonable demands of righteous people and a righteous public.
Secondly, the progressive cause believes in the status quo as it pertains to inner cites, the rust belt, the education system, and crime and gangs.  To suggest that there are inner city crime issues (that cannot be solved by retraining the police), is to be a racist. To suggest that we can stop the flow of American jobs being shipped overseas, is to be a Nazi-like Nationalist. To suggest that parents be given say in how their children are taught, is an attack on public schools. The progressive cause believes that these situations are not problems, but rather just a negative spin on an otherwise happy reality. To suggest that eight years of Barack Obama's leadership did not resolve these issues is to be dark and negative. Did I mention it also makes you a racist?

America first:
For many decades, we've enriched foreign industry at the expense of American industry; subsidized the armies of other countries, while allowing for the very sad depletion of our military. We've defended other nations' borders while refusing to defend our own.  Every decision on trade, on taxes, on immigration, on foreign affairs will be made to benefit American workers and American families. We must protect our borders from the ravages of other countries making our products, stealing our companies and destroying our jobs.
The progressive cause certainly rejects the notion that we need to put America first. The progressive cause is all about globalism, and the need to have a cohesive global society. In order to achieve such a goal, means that American leadership must include American sacrifice. We need to collectively "check" our white American privilege and tend to the needs of the world. If this means agreeing to trade agreements that do no benefit America and American workers, so be it. After all, our reputation with the more liberal nations of the world is much more important than the fate of our spoiled uneducated low information American working population.

Uniting against terrorism:
We will reinforce old alliances and form new ones and unite the civilized world against radical Islamic terrorism, which we will eradicate from the face of the Earth.
Obviously, the progressive cause is against the eradication of anyone. To be suggest that there even is such a thing as radical Islamic terrorism is Islamophobic. Secondly, we obviously must come to the obvious realization that Israel is not our friend, and that most of the antisemitism in this world is well grounded.

Coming together as Americans:
It's time to remember that old wisdom our soldiers will never forget, that whether we are black or brown or white, we all bleed the same red blood of patriots. And whether a child is born in the urban sprawl of Detroit or the wind-swept plains of Nebraska, they look up at the same night sky, they will their heart with the same dreams, and they are infused with the breath of life by the same almighty creator.
The progressive cause obviously calls bullshit on this one. The general concept of everyone bleeding the same blood, or people of different races seeing the same sky is to not see the obvious racism, bigotry, and hatred that can only be combated by quotas, special treatment, and the overall concept that things will never be equal until White American lets go of their privilege. Liberals can call on people to come together. Conservatives have not earned such a privilege.
_______

Maybe I am missing some things here. but as far as I can tell from the reaction to the Donald Trump inauguration speech, we can pretty much determine the following as the pillars of American progressivism :
  • People of America should answer to Washington - not the other way around. 
  • Federalism is good. Globalism is even better. The more you can consolidate more people under one central control, the better. As long as the control is liberal. 
  • There is no such thing as bad Muslims, only bad Christians who think there are bad Muslims. 
  • Conservatives pretending to point out problems are just being dark. There is no real problems in America that cannot be solved by Whites checking their privilege. Those who do not agree should be called names.
  • Calling on people to come together is fine if you are liberal. But if you are conservative, doing so is only an attempt minimize your racism. 
Does that about sum it up?

anyone except conservatives.

many prominent liberals are on record for wanting to imprison warmyl cooling "deniers."

and that's just for starters.

college professors across america have called for death to conservatives. examples of this are legion.

liberals are totalitarian in this regard. remember, it was a liberal, not a conservative who herded a large swath of american citizens into cages during WW II.

one either swears allegiance to the groupthink of liberalism or there will be consequences.

no one is off limits. remember the time honored tradition of not fucking with the children of the president? yeah, that expired on inauguration day.

liberals are the scum of the earth and trump needs to treat them as such. for the next four years (and hopefully eight) trump and his team needs to refer to "rules for radicals" on a daily basis and and incessantly and mercilessly fuck with liberals. crush them with a scorched earth strategery.

give them no quarter and show them no mercy.

The Word of the Day is a recurring Sesame Street feature that debuted in season 38 and lasted through season 45. The segment highlights a particular word introduced before the show with What's the Word on the Street? The standard format for every segment was established by season 39, in that Muppet characters (usually Elmo) would accompany celebrities in explaining or demonstrating the word.

The parallels are disturbing. This is going to get me at least a dozen claims that I'm drinking again. The indispensable fact, is that I have not. But since Republicans have their own facts, it won't stop them.

The idea that Hitler wasn’t elected democratically is probably an allusion to the fact that he[2] never got more than 50% of the votes (th e best result was some 44%). Americans, with their “the winner takes it all”-system tend to forget that you can win a german election without winning a majority.
The problem with this is that, without a majority, you have to form either a coalition with other parties, or form a minority goverment, or both, and in fact that was the problem that had plagued the Republic from the beginning. To put the results into perspective, the 43,9% for the NSDAP in the 1933 election was the best result any party had ever had in the Republic of Weimar from 1919 to 1933[3] (second best was 37,8% for the Social Democrats immediately after WWI)[4]. Governments were habitually formed without any democratic basis at all, so the result of the 1933 election might have looked like a step forward.
It turned out that there is yet another way to govern without a majority – in March 1933 the german parliament passed what is known as „Ermächtigungsgesetz“ (Gesetz zur Behebung der Not von Volk und Reich), a law that allowed the Nazi/Deutschnationale Coalition to govern without the consent of the parliament. That this was in fact an unconstitutional law is a mere technicality – it was passed with a vast majority that would have allowed to change the constitution in any case, so the parliament skipped a step[5].
So,since Hitler and the NSDAP had more votes than any other party during the Republic of Weimar and governed on the basis of a law that had been passed by the absolute majority of the parliament is seems reasonable to conclude that he was indeed democratically elected.

With little warning or explanation, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recently canceled a major climate change conference that had been scheduled for next month in Atlanta.

The Climate and Health Summit, which had been in the works for months, was intended as a chance for public health officials around the country to learn more about the mounting evidence of the risks to human health posed by the changing climate. But CDC officials abruptly canceled the conference before President Trump’s inauguration, sending a terse email on Jan. 9 to those who had been scheduled to speak at the event. The message did not explain the reason behind the decision.

“Unfortunately, we are unable to hold the Summit in February 2017,” CDC officials wrote, adding that the agency is “currently exploring” whether it could reschedule the event later in the year.

One of the most striking things about Donald Trump’s accession to the presidency has been the over-the-top reaction of his opponents. One would need a heart of stone not to laugh at some of the expressions of dismay exhibited by Democrats, such as the now-famous protester who simply screamed “Noooo!” as the oath was taken, or Madonna saying she “thought an awful lot about blowing up the White House.”

But in fact, this reaction to an election loss — by anyone, to any candidate — is not entirely irrational. Elections matter, after all. In fact, these days they matter too much. In the wake of the 2008 election, writer Jerry Pournelle observed: “We have always known that eternal vigilance is the price of freedom. It’s worse now, because capture of government is so much more important than it once was. There was a time when there was enough freedom that it hardly mattered which brand of crooks ran government. That has not been true for a long time — not during most of your lifetimes, and for much of mine — and it will probably never be true again.”

In other words, if Americans increasingly find it intolerable that their political opponents control the government, that’s because government controls too much.

absolutely true. it's no wonder that those most addicted to government - democrats or republicans - would go into full-on batshit freak out over a change in administrations, and the fact that a change in administrative oversight elicits this kind of reaction is fucking absurd.

Trump 45%

1/24/2017

C.H. Truth said...

The problem for the "really gullible" liberals like Roger... is that they are still part of the whopping eight percent who believe that the media is a credible source for the truth.

They believed the 27 cent foreclosure story.
They believed the MLK bust story.
They believed the fake inauguration crowd photo.

They will believe just about anything negative about Trump that is told to them... The "parallels are disturbing story" is a case in point. Clinton won his first term with 43% of the vote, which is 4% less than Trump got, and nobody compared Clinton to "Hitler".

But these weak minded liberals cannot help themselves. They are simply are impulsive and compulsive when it comes to Donald Trump. Nothing they can probably control, because they don't have the independent drive to do so.

In fact, Donald Trump sends Roger $0.27 a month for rent in his head, since he has a permanent spot there. Maybe Roger can foreclose if he gets behind.

I seriously thought that I should back off and see what happens.

In the last three days, we have witnessed three temper tantrums, some flat out manipulation of the facts, and yesterday a blatant lie about illegal immigrants voted for Clinton, and depriving him of a popular vote victory.

Their are many Republicans who hold deep reservations for the President. There were at least two stories, using of course, anonymous sources, that the Republican congressional leaders are deeply concerned.

Of course this could be temporary and he will back down. But he's a 70 year old man, who has a fifty year reputation as an impulsive, narcissistic personality. As Indy said yesterday, we are going to deal with daily temper tantrums for the next four long years. Men his age don't change their colors.

Roger Amick said...

Illegal immigrants didn't vote for Hillary Clinton.

C.H. Truth said...

Of course this could be temporary and he will back down.

Or this could be temporary and the press will back down?

I think either scenario is unlikely and at this point, pining for the days when the press fawned over the every move of the President is over for the foreseeable future. The press will continue to spin and misrepresent. The administration will continue to spin and misrepresent (just like every previous White House) and they will continue to wage war. To the degree it will matter with Trump supporters, it will make him a bigger hero and it will make the media into bigger villians.

Trump won the election on his own terms. He didn't make a bunch of promises to special interest groups. He didn't take a bunch of money from special interest groups. He didn't pivot during the general election and he will not pivot now.

He has no obligation to change his behavior, Roger. The idea that there is some obligation now that he is elected to behave like liberals or the press would like him to is not based in any thing other than liberal self importance. As it was stated. He is now the President. How he acts, is by the very definition of the word, Presidential.

Off James' favorate poll.

Not pictures, Roger... the one picture that was widely circulated, that when blown up, showed that Trump was not on stage when it was taken.

Other pictures taken during his speech show the crowds out almost to the memorial... with the only sections empty being those that had been "roped off" for security reasons. When I watched the speech live, they panned the crowds and I saw the same thing... people out almost to the memorial.

The picture in question shows like three blocks of empty space with sparse crowds all the way up to the main area. It was obviously taken sometime "prior" to the speech when people were still filling in... but was widely circulated with a comparison shot of the 2009 speech that was taken "during" the speech.

indeed.

and consumer confidence is sharply on the rise:

The Conference Board Consumer Confidence Index®, which had increased considerably in November, posted another gain in December. The Index now stands at 113.7 (1985=100), up from 109.4 in November. The Expectations Index increased sharply from 94.4 to 105.5, but the Present Situation Index decreased from 132.0 last month to 126.1.

The monthly Consumer Confidence Survey®, based on a probability-design random sample, is conducted for The Conference Board by Nielsen, a leading global provider of information and analytics around what consumers buy and watch. The cutoff date for the preliminary results was December 15.

“Consumer Confidence improved further in December, due solely to increasing Expectations which hit a 13-year high (Dec. 2003, 107.4),” said Lynn Franco, Director of Economic Indicators at The Conference Board. “The post-election surge in optimism for the economy, jobs and income prospects, as well as for stock prices which reached a 13-year high, was most pronounced among older consumers. Consumers’ assessment of current conditions, which declined, still suggests that economic growth continued through the final months of 2016. Looking ahead to 2017, consumers’ continued optimism will depend on whether or not their expectations are realized.”

opie said...

While it is clear Americans' trust in the media has been eroding over time, the election campaign may be the reason that it has fallen so sharply this year. With many Republican leaders and conservative pundits saying Hillary Clinton has received overly positive media attention, while Donald Trump has been receiving unfair or negative attention, this may be the prime reason their relatively low trust in the media has evaporated even more. It is also possible that Republicans think less of the media as a result of Trump's sharp criticisms of the press. Republicans who say they have trust in the media has plummeted to 14% from 32% a year ago. This is easily the lowest confidence among Republicans in 20 years.

My guess is that most R's get their news from the unfiltered internet like breitbart, the king of fake news.

The morning assault on the first amendment.

President Trump has banned employees of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) from giving social media updates and speaking with reporters, according to The Associated Press.

The social media ban is part of a series of new restrictions at the EPA under the Trump administration. The Huffington Post reported Monday that EPA grants had been frozen, with agency employees barred from speaking of the matter.


Myron Ebell, who leads the Trump EPA transition, confirmed the freeze to ProPublica.
“They’re trying to freeze things to make sure nothing happens they don’t want to have happen, so any regulations going forward, contracts, grants, hires, they want to make sure to look at them first,” Ebell told ProPublica.

Trump's pick for EPA director, Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt, has frequently challenged agency policy in court.


The Trump administration reportedly told the Department of the Interior to stop tweeting from its accounts over the weekend after the National Park Service's Twitter account retweeted a post about the crowd sizes at Trump's inauguration Friday. The agency brought back its accounts on Saturday.

a message to the angry leftists from an american infantryman

I know you don’t know me. I know you don’t even think about me and when you do, it’s probably not anything nice. I’m the evil hegemonically masculine patriarchal oppressor to you feminists. I’m the jackbooted statist thug to you dope smokin’ long-haired hippies. I’m “The Man” to you racial activists. I’m the idiot who joined the military because I “wasn’t smart enough” to go get a liberal arts degree like you know-it-all 20-year-old college dipshits; and for some reason you hate me for that. I’m that guy with the rifle who signed on the dotted line for $24K a year so that you budding Marxist fucksticks could have the freedom to complain about me and the manner in which I provide it. I have a little message for you.

I see you there, in Portland… In Chicago… In San Francisco… In Bumfuck Directional School Liberal Arts College… You’re having your temper tantrums because ever since mommy dropped you off at Daycare 20 years ago you’ve been throwing them to get your way. Now you’re super pissed about the results of a presidential election where the other guy (and the only guy in the race for that matter) won.


I’m not here to talk politics, or explain the Electoral College, or to tell you what hypocritical douchebags you are for doing the things you’re doing. No. I have a much simpler conversation to have with you. See, I read what you post on Twitter, Facebook, and your various internet blogs. I see you on the news breaking things, setting fires, and assaulting people of the opposite political belief. I see you there with your fat ugly unshaven feminist women and black power slogan screaming race baiters, throwing rocks and bottles at the lines of police officers trying to keep order in your own cities. I know your rhetoric. I know all your identity politics stems from the Marxist activists and 'intellectuals' who have pushed the American left farther left than ever before. I know you believe your “progressive” views are the supreme moral authority on every single issue and somehow this perception allows you to justify your totalitarian social views and hypocritical violent outbursts. You profess to hate half this country for their alleged bigotry while carrying signs that say "Love Wins!"

I also know you’re a coward.

caliphate4vr said...

I know this because you keep screaming, and blogging, and protesting, and even rioting… but you won’t start this “uprising” you keep going on and on about. If you really believe that your cause is just, that the majority supports you, and that the United States needs to be overthrown to make way for your Progressive social utopia of sunshine and free shit… pick up a gun and start your revolution like every other communist group in history. See, I come from an organization that spent the better part of the last century training to fight a bunch of little commie heathens, and I have a pretty healthy respect for any Ivan who was willing to pick up an AK47 and parachute onto the continent ready to overthrow the USA. That takes some guts. You’re not like him though. You’re quite different actually. Ivan was in shape.

WASHINGTON, D.C.—In a survey conducted in the nation’s capital Saturday, a full 100% of the people marching on the nation’s capital for abortion rights as part of the “Women’s March on Washington” were found to have not been aborted by their mothers when they were yet to be born.

The controversial study indicates that there may be a connection between participating in any kind of protest, and having a mother willing to carry you to term beforehand.

“There seems to be a very strong correlation between your biological mother choosing not to end your life in the womb, and your chances of showing up to a protest about something,” a reporter present at the march said. “I’ve interviewed hundreds of people out here today, and it’s astounding—not a single one of them was terminated when they were still in their mother’s womb.”

At publishing time, reports had discovered similar statistics at all other Women’s March events from around the globe.

Roger Amick said...

Uhmmm, well he believes his own facts, even though the facts are different.


White House press secretary Sean Spicer on Tuesday confirmed that President Donald Trump believes millions of people voted illegally in November’s election, despite a total absence of evidence to support this view.

“The president does believe that, I think he’s stated that before, and stated his concern of voter fraud and people voting illegally during the campaign and continues to maintain that belief based on studies and evidence people have brought to him,” Spicer told reporters at the daily press briefing.

Pressed for evidence to support the claim, Spicer said only, “I think the president has believed that for a while, based on studies and information he has.” He did not say what those studies or information were.

Spicer also struggled to explain why Trump had not prioritized an investigation into the issue, which NPR’s Mara Liasson said would be “a scandal of astronomical proportions,” if it were actually true.

“Maybe we will. We’ll see where we go from here,” Spicer said.

Trump surprised congressional leaders Monday night at the White House when he claimed that he would have won the popular vote, were it not for “3 to 5 million illegals” who voted for Clinton, according to sources who spoke to The Huffington Post.

Trump won the presidency with a majority of the Electoral College, but Clinton won nearly 3 million more popular votes than Trump did.

Ever since winning in November, Trump has been obsessed with the topic of whether he was legitimately elected. These concerns were amplified by intelligence community reports of Russian efforts to influence the U.S. presidential election.

C.H. Truth said...

Roger - this is an example of fake news media bias...

The reality is that there "are" studies that show illegal voters vote. This includes a 2014 study from professors from Old Dominion and George Mason that made a claim that upwards of 2.8 million illegals voted in 2008 and 2010. You can look up Richman, Chattha, and Earnest if you would like.

Those studies would debunk the claim that there is "no evidence" of illegal voting. By definition, these studies would constitute "evidence".

The fact that there are "other" studies that claim differently, does not "debunk" the claim... anymore than the 2014 study would "debunk" the studies that claim differently.

There are simply competing opinions as to how rampant illegal voting is.

It's dishonest for the media to "take sides" in which studies they deem are accurate and which ones are deemed to be "debunked". To make the claim that there is no evidence is a flat out lie.

btw... I heard somewhere that when the media decides to hide certain facts, highlight others, and throw their personal opinions into the mix (rather than report the facts as they are) is considered something called "gas lighting". Not sure if you have heard this term, but this would be a classic example of it. Of course anyone who "falls for" this sort of media bias in the reporting would be a victim of "gas lighting".

You should do some research on the term!

A Rogue National Park Is Tweeting Out Climate Change Facts in Defiance of Donald Trump
Katie Reilly
Updated: 10:40 PM Pacific

Badlands National Park posted several facts about climate change on its official Twitter account Tuesday afternoon, sharing statistics that might contradict the beliefs of President Donald Trump's new administration.

"Today, the amount of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere is higher than at any time in the last 650,000 years. #climate," the park tweeted on Tuesday.

Trump has falsely called climate change a "hoax" and said he will roll back measures aimed at stopping global warming, sparking concern among climate scientists.

The tweets didn't last long, and had been deleted by early Tuesday evening.

Roger Amick said...

I wrote it myself you stupid bitch.

C.H. Truth said...

Roger -

To be clear, I don't believe that Donald Trump's claim that illegal voting cost him the popular vote. But that is not what I take issue with.

I take issue with the assertion (by the media) that there is no evidence of illegal voting.

Since I know you are incapable of doing the research, the study in question was basically a survey of illegal aliens living in the country. It's been a while since I read it, but I believe it was a rather substantial sample (as in the thousands). Some of the questions were in regards to whether or not these illegals were registered to vote, and whether or not they admitted to voting. I seem to recall that it was 14% of them that were registered or voted (I forget which). If anything I would argue that the number would be higher than they found, due too the fact that these people would have to be basically admitting to a crime to say yes.

Based on the answers to those surveys and the amount of estimated illegals who are in the country, they were able to make an estimate that approximately 2.8 million illegals voted in the previous two elections.

Now I believe (and I could be wrong) that the 2.8 million was actually a combined total of the two elections (not 2.8 in each). So I don't believe that the 2016 election would have had enough votes to make up the difference (even based on the survey results).

That being said, to argue (as the media does) that there is no evidence that illegals vote (or to use a rebuttal from a Harvard professor who assured us that the real amount of illegals who voted is "zero") is simply wrong on fact. This survey would not be much different than an exit poll (did you vote and how did you vote). While exit polls are inherently skewed in predicting end results, they probably get the main question (did you vote or not) correct. That's all this survey did (did you vote). If it is inaccurate, it would probably be lowballing the number, not the other way around.

Independent experts say there is no evidence to support president’s assertion

By PETER NICHOLAS, CAROL E. LEE and KRISTINA PETERSON
Updated Jan. 24, 2017 10:36 p.m. ET

President Donald Trump has quickly advanced a number of top policy initiatives in the opening days of his administration, placing an emphasis on creating the jobs he promised on the campaign trail.

But the president’s insistence that his November vote total and inaugural-crowd size were bigger than all evidence suggests have proved a distraction, overshadowing early moves to fulfill his campaign pledges and unnerving some of the Republicans he needs to turn his promises into policy.

On a day when Mr. Trump took action to ease regulatory burdens and persuade car makers to keep jobs in the U.S., the White House faced Tuesday a barrage of questions about the president’s assertion the day before that millions of people voted illegally on Nov. 8th.

Press secretary Sean Spicer defended Mr. Trump, telling reporters that Mr. Trump’s “belief” that large-scale voter fraud infected the election results is unshaken.

“I think he’s stated his concerns of voter fraud, and people voting illegally during the campaign, and he continues to maintain that belief based on studies and evidence that people have presented to him,” Mr. Spicer said.

Independent experts say there is no evidence backing up Mr. Trump’s assertions about voter fraud. Mr. Trump’s fellow Republicans also weren’t rushing to defend the new president. House Speaker Paul Ryan (R., Wis.) said he has “seen no evidence” buttressing Mr. Trump’s claims.

The controversy erupted on the same day Mr. Trump signed executive memorandums meant to minimize regulatory hurdles for a $1 trillion infrastructure package that he said will modernize the nation’s roads and ports and lay the groundwork to approving the Keystone pipeline.

He has been meeting with CEOs and car companies, using the presidential bully pulpit to stanch the flow of jobs overseas. On Monday, Mr. Trump pulled out of a 12-nation Pacific trade deal that he said would have been harmful to U.S. workers, and the White House said Tuesday that he will submit a nomination to fill a vacancy on the U.S. Supreme Court next week.

Roger Amick said...

t the same time, the president is using precious political capital on issues dealing with his popularity and public image.

This weekend, Messrs. Trump and Spicer both criticized media outlets for reports on the crowd size at the inaugural address. Side-by-side aerial photographs show Mr. Trump’s crowd was smaller than that of then-President Barack Obama’s 2009 inaugural.

“I would urge the president to knock this off,” Sen. Lindsey Graham (R., S.C.) said Tuesday. “This is going to erode his ability to govern the country if he does not stop it.”


Mr. Trump won the presidency on the strength of his Electoral College victory—the only measure that counts. He lost the popular vote to Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton by about 2.8 million ballots.

Meeting privately with congressional leaders at the White House Monday, Mr. Trump spent the first 10 minutes telling them how he would have beaten Mrs. Clinton in the popular-vote tally if not for the ballots cast by up to five million illegal immigrants, people familiar with the conversation said.

On Tuesday, Mr. Spicer brushed off the president’s remarks as something he mentioned “in passing.”

Asked if Mr.Trump wants an investigation into whether the election was marred by voter fraud, Mr. Spicer said that “we’ll see where we go from here.”

Researchers at Dartmouth College looked into Mr. Trump’s allegations of widespread voter fraud in the 2016 election and found no evidence that it happened. One of the authors of the report, Michael Heron, said research “implies that it is very, very rare.”

“Many of these allegations of voter fraud were based on concerns that massive numbers of noncitizens would cast ballots in the election; however, my co-authors and I found no evidence that there was rampant voter fraud in the 2016 presidential election,” Mr. Herron said in a statement.

On a separate front, the bipartisan National Association of Secretaries of State put out a statement Tuesday saying: “We are not aware of any evidence that supports the voter fraud claims made by President Trump, but we are open to learning more about the administration’s concerns.”

Saul Anuzis, a former Michigan GOP chairman, said Mr. Trump’s freewheeling style “worked well for him politically but now he has to lead, so people are going to be holding him more accountable with numbers, facts and figures. He probably needs to be a little more cautious.”

Roger Amick said...

The Trump administration has instituted what it described as a “temporary media blackout” at the Environmental Protection Agency. Included in the blackout are EPA press releases, blog updates, and posts to the agency’s social media accounts. Staffers in EPA’s public affairs office are instructed to forward all inquiries from reporters to the White House Office of Administration and Resources Management.

Similar orders barring external communications have been issued to other federal agencies in recent days, including the Agriculture and Interior departments.

The Trump administration does not want Americans to have the truth. They would rather promote lies. This, my friends, is another step toward tyranny.

Seems the so called "grass roots" women's movement still needed their sugar daddy.

The main man behind the Women’s March on Washington may have been hedge fund billionaire George Soros, who reportedly has ties to 56 of the 403 groups that sponsored the demonstration in DC.

Although pink-hatted protesters called the march nonpartisan and a “grass-roots effort,” former Wall Street Journal reporter Asra Q. Nomani wrote in an opinion piece on Women in the World, it “really isn’t a ‘women’s march.’ It’s a march for women who are anti-Trump.”

Nomani found links between Soros, who called President Trump “a would-be dictator,” and the 56 march “partners” including Planned Parenthood, Natural Resources Defense Council, MoveOn.org, National Action Network, Amnesty International and the American Civil Liberties Union.

Similar orders barring external communications have been issued to other federal agencies in recent days, including the Agriculture and Interior departments.

The Trump administration does not want Americans to have the truth. They would rather promote lies. This, my friends, is another step toward tyranny.

What do you think?

i think you're a hack, lil robbie.

you "teach" at cal bezerkely. is every professor on your campus authorized to speak on behalf of the university? or do you have public information officers at both the cal level and at the state university chancellor level who are charged with the dissemination of official information to the public?

engage your midget brain before you go on facebook next time.

you might give a hack like roger a thrill up his leg, but to the rest of the world you come off looking like an assclown.

"As usual, I am asked to share. I'm a good public speaker, and have a very powerful voice."

LOL.

i suspect that roger has such a high opinion of himself to compensate for the rest of the planet who thinks he's a fucking imbecile.

I suspect it's to compensate for something else.....

Global stock markets are rallying right now and U.S. stock futures are pushing up. Investors are still feeling positive about Trump's pro-business agenda.

European markets are rising in early trading, with many indexes up by about 1%. Most Asian markets ended the day with gains.

The S&P 500 and Nasdaq both hit record highs on Wednesday. The Dow Jones industrial average climbed 0.6%. It's now less than 100 points away from the much-hyped 20,000 level.

The financial and materials sectors performed particularly well on Tuesday.

"This is significant, as both materials and financial stocks have been sensitive to market expectations around the Trump administration's ability to deliver growth," said Kathleen Brooks, research director at City Index. "

KD 25 % less money for life said...

The Issue of Social Security and stupidity.

You have to actively apply for SS Disablity and for Social Security pay outs. Why would some one that is so needy of the money do something so stupid that reduces those payout for life by 25%.

That is what HB did, his wife is not making the same on SSI as she did working full time as an RN.

KD, 25 % less money for life said...

Robert Riech and HB have this in common, the morning of Nov. 9th, 2016 as the stock market future dropped , they took it as a buying Opportunity and bought "put" futures, I am sure they lost most if not all of that money, unless they were all talk and no action.

What do you all think, was Riech and HB just all talk again?

KD, Felony Rioting is still a crime said...

This is outstanding news: Cite HuffPO


"Four more journalists get felony charges after covering inauguration unrest (not unrest- Felony Rioting)


A documentary producer, a photojournalist, a live-streamer and a freelance reporter facing up to 10 years in prison and a $25,000 fine if convicted.."

Commonsense said...

Sounds like they were doing something more than just covering the riots.

KD, Rioting Press said...

Yes, they were and they are now going to have to defend their actions in a Federal Criminal Court.

It would be best to do a plea agreement, exchange money for less time in prison. Unless the point of rioting was to get arrested and waste a major part of your life in a Federal Prison.
