I am sooo disgusted that anybody would vote for him at all (but I do understand why now) plus, the potential damage that will be done to our democracy is what we fear most and what we're all bracing for so, prepare for the Trumpocalypse with the religious right running amok over Constitutional principles of separation of church and state attempting to turn America into a "Christian Nation" and advancing towards the 'end times' they always wanted. It appears our best hope is that Trump will not be the fascist authoritarian dictator he has been throughout his year and a half long Presidential campaign, unlikely.

16 Worst Things We Can Expect From Trump's First 100 Days
Real damage awaits as Trump and the GOP take power


Here there are several things I agree with and some I don't: Here Is What Donald Trump Wants To Do In His First 100 Days

This yooooge loss is on the DNC, Debbie Wasserman Schultz, Hillary Clinton & her campaign, John Podesta, Donna Brazile and so many others for making such a lapse in judgment by sabotaging Bernie Sanders and disrespecting him and his supporters and as a result they lost most of those Bernie supporters who wanted real change - most of these voters were not racists or bigots they simply wanted real change. The Democratic party has failed us progressives for the last time but, I don't understand why they didn't see it coming after the miserable 2014 mid-terms when the GOP won their largest majority since WW2 - which gave us the Joseph McCarthy era. Now, the GOP has the largest majority in all three branches that they've had since 1928 just before the stock market crash and great depression. Far too often Democrats seem like spineless cowards failing to stand up and fight for what is right and instead let the GOP run roughshod over the dems for 8 very long years. Harry Reid failed to do all he could to keep the crazy GOP at bay and let them earn the record for filibusters and obstruction that essentially ruined the Obama admin. We need a fresh & new Democratic party that will actually make a sincere effort to learn from ALL of these mistakes and focus on the needs of average people instead of the top 1% and Wall St.

So, who knows if Trump & the GOP will try to turn America into a Christian theocracy and begin their new, modern day Dark Age to get rid of the non-believers since the numbers of religious folks has been dropping so badly for years now. But Trump was a democrat throughout the 80's and 90's so nobody really knows what a Trump admin will do.

Michael Moore's "Morning After To-Do List"

Quote:
Morning After To-Do List:

1. Take over the Democratic Party and return it to the people. They have failed us miserably.

2. Fire all pundits, predictors, pollsters and anyone else in the media who had a narrative they wouldn't let go of and refused to listen to or acknowledge what was really going on. Those same bloviators will now tell us we must "heal the divide" and "come together." They will pull more hooey like that out of their ass in the days to come. Turn them off.

3. Any Democratic member of Congress who didn't wake up this morning ready to fight, resist and obstruct in the way Republicans did against President Obama every day for eight full years must step out of the way and let those of us who know the score lead the way in stopping the meanness and the madness that's about to begin.

4. Everyone must stop saying they are "stunned" and "shocked". What you mean to say is that you were in a bubble and weren't paying attention to your fellow Americans and their despair. YEARS of being neglected by both parties, the anger and the need for revenge against the system only grew. Along came a TV star they liked whose plan was to destroy both parties and tell them all "You're fired!" Trump's victory is no surprise. He was never a joke. Treating him as one only strengthened him. He is both a creature and a creation of the media and the media will never own that.

5. You must say this sentence to everyone you meet today: "HILLARY CLINTON WON THE POPULAR VOTE!" The MAJORITY of our fellow Americans preferred Hillary Clinton over Donald Trump. Period. Fact. If you woke up this morning thinking you live in an effed-up country, you don't. The majority of your fellow Americans wanted Hillary, not Trump. The only reason he's president is because of an arcane, insane 18th-century idea called the Electoral College. Until we change that, we'll continue to have presidents we didn't elect and didn't want. You live in a country where a majority of its citizens have said they believe there's climate change, they believe women should be paid the same as men, they want a debt-free college education, they don't want us invading countries, they want a raise in the minimum wage and they want a single-payer true universal health care system. None of that has changed. We live in a country where the majority agree with the "liberal" position. We just lack the liberal leadership to make that happen (see: #1 above).

Let's try to get this all done by noon today.

Michael Moore's Post-Election To-Do List Day 2

1. Must quickly and decisively form an opposition movement, the likes of which hasn’t been seen since the 1960s.

I will do my part to help lead this as I’m sure many others (Bernie, Elizabeth Warren, MoveOn, the hip-hop community, DFA, etc.) will, too. The core of this opposition force will be fueled by young people who, as with Occupy Wall Street and Black Lives Matter, don’t tolerate b.s. and are relentless in their resistance to authority. They have no interest in compromising with racists and misogynists.

2. Prepare to impeach Trump.

Just as the Republicans were already planning to do with President Hillary from day one, we must organize the apparatus that will bring charges against him when he violates his oath and breaks the law ― and then we must remove him from office.

3. Must commit right now to a vigorous fight (including civil disobedience, if necessary) which will block any and all Donald Trump Supreme Court nominees who do not meet our approval.

We demand the Democrats in the Senate aggressively filibuster any nominees who support Citizens United or who oppose the rights of women, immigrants and the poor. This is non-negotiable.

4. Demand the DNC apologize to Bernie Sanders...

...for trying to fix the primaries against him, for spinning the press to ignore his historic campaign, for giving Clinton the questions in advance at the Flint debate, for its latent ageism and anti-Semism in trying to turn voters against him because of his age or religious beliefs, and for its anti-democracy system of “superdelegates” who are elected by no one.

We all know now had Bernie been given a fair shot, he probably would have been the nominee and he ― as the true outsider and “change” candidate ―would have inspired and fired up the base and soundly defeated Donald Trump. If no apology is soon forthcoming from the DNC, that’s ok ― when we take over the Democratic Party (see yesterday’s to-do list, #1), we will issue the apology in person.

5. Demand that President Obama establish a special prosecutor...

...to investigate who and what was behind FBI Director James Comey’s illegal interference into the presidential election 11 days before the vote was held.

6. Begin a national push, while it’s fresh in everyone’s mind, for a constitutional amendment to fix our broken electoral system.

* Eliminate the Electoral College ― popular vote only.

* Paper ballots only ― no electronic voting.

* Election Day must be made a holiday for all ― or held on a weekend so more people vote.

* All citizens, regardless of any run-ins with the criminal “justice” system, must have the right to vote. (In swing states like Florida and Virginia, 30-40 percent of all Black men are prohibited by law from voting.)

7. Convince President Obama to immediately do what he should have done a year ago.

Send in the Army Corps of Engineers to Flint to dig up and replace all the poisoned pipes. NOTHING HAS CHANGED; the water in Flint is still unusable.

Will try to get these done by sundown. More to-do tomorrow...

Americans Wanted a Revolution, and Clinton's Campaign Only Offered Them Obama 2.0

Bernie Sanders "got it" and would've won by 10 or 20, which would've won the Senate & House back:

"The American people must make a fundamental decision. Do we continue the 40-year decline of our middle class and the growing gap between the very rich and everyone else, or do we fight for a progressive economic agenda that creates jobs, raises wages, protects the environment and provides health care for all? Are we prepared to take on the enormous economic and political power of the billionaire class, or do we continue to slide into economic and political oligarchy? These are the most important questions of our time, and how we answer them will determine the future of our country."

- Bernie Sanders

The DNC owes the American people an official apology for the way they mistreated Bernie Sanders and his campaign - he was right all along and would've won. Time after time in poll after poll showed that Bernie Sanders was the better democratic candidate that could beat Trump. The DNC and democratic party elite simply didn't care. The entire democratic leadership must be fired and build anew with a clean slate with the needs of average voters in mind instead of only focusing on the top 1%, Wall St etc.

Bernie Sanders: Where the Democrats Go From Here

"Millions of Americans registered a protest vote on Tuesday, expressing their fierce opposition to an economic and political system that puts wealthy and corporate interests over their own. I strongly supported Hillary Clinton, campaigned hard on her behalf, and believed she was the right choice on Election Day. But Donald J. Trump won the White House because his campaign rhetoric successfully tapped into a very real and justified anger, an anger that many traditional Democrats feel.

I am saddened, but not surprised, by the outcome. It is no shock to me that millions of people who voted for Mr. Trump did so because they are sick and tired of the economic, political and media status quo.

Working families watch as politicians get campaign financial support from billionaires and corporate interests — and then ignore the needs of ordinary Americans. Over the last 30 years, too many Americans were sold out by their corporate bosses. They work longer hours for lower wages as they see decent paying jobs go to China, Mexico or some other low-wage country. They are tired of having chief executives make 300 times what they do, while 52 percent of all new income goes to the top 1 percent. Many of their once beautiful rural towns have depopulated, their downtown stores are shuttered, and their kids are leaving home because there are no jobs — all while corporations suck the wealth out of their communities and stuff them into offshore accounts.

Working Americans can’t afford decent, quality child care for their children. They can’t send their kids to college, and they have nothing in the bank as they head into retirement. In many parts of the country they can’t find affordable housing, and they find the cost of health insurance much too high. Too many families exist in despair as drugs, alcohol and suicide cut life short for a growing number of people.

President-elect Trump is right: The American people want change. But what kind of change will he be offering them? Will he have the courage to stand up to the most powerful people in this country who are responsible for the economic pain that so many working families feel, or will he turn the anger of the majority against minorities, immigrants, the poor and the helpless?

Will he have the courage to stand up to Wall Street, work to break up the “too big to fail” financial institutions and demand that big banks invest in small businesses and create jobs in rural America and inner cities? Or, will he appoint another Wall Street banker to run the Treasury Department and continue business as usual? Will he, as he promised during the campaign, really take on the pharmaceutical industry and lower the price of prescription drugs?

I am deeply distressed to hear stories of Americans being intimidated and harassed in the wake of Mr. Trump’s victory, and I hear the cries of families who are living in fear of being torn apart. We have come too far as a country in combating discrimination. We are not going back. Rest assured, there is no compromise on racism, bigotry, xenophobia and sexism. We will fight it in all its forms, whenever and wherever it re-emerges.

I will keep an open mind to see what ideas Mr. Trump offers and when and how we can work together. Having lost the nationwide popular vote, however, he would do well to heed the views of progressives. If the president-elect is serious about pursuing policies that improve the lives of working families, I’m going to present some very real opportunities for him to earn my support.

Let’s rebuild our crumbling infrastructure and create millions of well-paying jobs. Let’s raise the minimum wage to a living wage, help students afford to go to college, provide paid family and medical leave and expand Social Security. Let’s reform an economic system that enables billionaires like Mr. Trump not to pay a nickel in federal income taxes. And most important, let’s end the ability of wealthy campaign contributors to buy elections.

In the coming days, I will also provide a series of reforms to reinvigorate the Democratic Party. I believe strongly that the party must break loose from its corporate establishment ties and, once again, become a grass-roots party of working people, the elderly and the poor. We must open the doors of the party to welcome in the idealism and energy of young people and all Americans who are fighting for economic, social, racial and environmental justice. We must have the courage to take on the greed and power of Wall Street, the drug companies, the insurance companies and the fossil fuel industry.

When my presidential campaign came to an end, I pledged to my supporters that the political revolution would continue. And now, more than ever, that must happen. We are the wealthiest nation in the history of the world. When we stand together and don’t let demagogues divide us up by race, gender or national origin, there is nothing we cannot accomplish. We must go forward, not backward."

Why on earth aren't the democratic leadership all over the news pleading with electors not to vote for Trump when they vote on Monday Dec 19th? The democrats appear not to be doing anything much about the Russian election hack job to get their buddy Trump & company elected. It could end up destroying our democracy if they let this guy have the Presidency. All Trump wants is his cut of that half Trillion dollar oil deal with Russia and his pick for Sec State would have the power to remove those sanctions; and a new American Trump empire whereby only his family are allowed to lead America - similar to how Putin operates Russia.

Sounds like a few FBI agents working for Trump/Russia need to be investigated too for treason/quisling.

Trump's inauguration must be delayed until the investigations are over.

Bernie Sanders should be President.

Trump didn't win, the dems just really screwed up. This yooooge loss is on the DNC, Debbie Wasserman Schultz, Hillary Clinton & her campaign, John Podesta, Donna Brazile and so many others for making such a lapse in judgment by sabotaging Bernie Sanders and disrespecting him and his supporters and as a result they lost most of those Bernie supporters who wanted real change - most of these voters were not racists or bigots they simply wanted real change.

Now, the GOP has the largest majority in all three branches that they've had since 1928 just before the stock market crash and great depression.

Bernie Sanders "got it" and would've won by 10 or 20, which would've won the Senate & House back:

"The Democratic party has to reach a fundamental conclusion: are we on the side of working people or big money interests? Do we stand with the elderly, the children, the sick and the poor, or do we stand with Wall Street speculators, and the drug companies, and the insurance companies?" ... "What the campaign is about is a very radical idea. We’re going to tell the truth, and the truth is that for forty years the middle-class in this country has been disappearing, and there has been a huge transfer of wealth from working families to the top one-tenth of one percent, and what the people of this country are saying is enough is enough. Our government and our country belong to all of us and not just a few billionaires."

"The American people must make a fundamental decision. Do we continue the 40-year decline of our middle class and the growing gap between the very rich and everyone else, or do we fight for a progressive economic agenda that creates jobs, raises wages, protects the environment and provides health care for all? Are we prepared to take on the enormous economic and political power of the billionaire class, or do we continue to slide into economic and political oligarchy? These are the most important questions of our time, and how we answer them will determine the future of our country."

The entire democratic leadership must be fired and build anew with a clean slate with the needs of average voters in mind instead of only focusing on the top 1%, Wall St etc. The democratic party has become republican-light working for the top 1% same as the GOP ever since the Clinton admin in the 90's.

I completely agree with the points below:

Quote:
CNN Fareed Zakaria 12-18-16 "What went wrong with the democrats"

"... we elected Barack Obama eight years ago to deal for a lot of the same reason to deal with a lot of the same issues and you know long story short he didn't do it. there's a lot of things that leap to mind these days like:

getting tough with wall street ... that's the main failure of Obama is that he didn't do that when he was elected to do that very thing back in 2009.

but there's many things now that you think of which in hindsight look like he should have done for example of renegotiating NAFTA which he says he wanted to do back in 2008 you remember this in the debate with Hillary.

another thing he was going to come down like a sledgehammer on agricultural monopolies and you just, you know, you think about how that would have helped him in these rural areas. another thing, make it easier to form a labor union - that would have been huge in dealing with what we now have seen unfolding ...

ExxonMobil helped defeat Russia sanctions bill

The company’s formidable lobbying operation cleared the way for outgoing CEO Rex Tillerson to help restore a program worth billions of dollars as secretary of state.

ExxonMobil successfully lobbied against a bill that would have made it harder for the next president to lift sanctions against Russia, clearing the way for the oil giant to restart a program worth billions of dollars if Donald Trump eases those restrictions as president.

The company’s effort could be helped by outgoing CEO Rex Tillerson, who, if confirmed as secretary of state, would be a key adviser on the decision.

The bill, known as the STAND for Ukraine Act, would have converted into law for five years President Barack Obama’s measures punishing Russia for annexing Crimea, making it more difficult for Trump to roll them back. The Senate left town on Monday without acting on the bill, making it easier for Trump to end the sanctions with a stroke of the pen.

The sanctions forced Exxon to step back from a drilling project in Russia’s Arctic, a loss that the company valued in a regulatory filing at as much as $1 billion. Exxon also lobbied the Senate Foreign Relations Committee against previous bills punishing Russia for the invasion of Ukraine, according to a person familiar with the company’s efforts on Capitol Hill.

Exxon’s intervention against the sanctions bill could add to concerns among senators — including Republicans John McCain, Lindsey Graham and Marco Rubio — that Tillerson is too chummy with Vladimir Putin. Exxon’s business partner in Russia is state-owned Rosneft, led by Igor Sechin, a close Putin ally who was sanctioned by the Treasury Department in 2014. Tillerson and Putin personally concluded the joint venture in 2011.

In a statement, Exxon spokesman Alan Jeffers said the company “sought and provided information” about its activities in Russia and Ukraine and disclosed its lobbying as required. "Our contacts were reported per congressional requirements, but were mainly in the first half of 2014," when the Russia sanctions were first imposed, he added.

Exxon reportedly raised concerns that the implementation of European sanctions against Russia, developed in concert with the U.S. restrictions, would give the company's overseas competitors an unfair advantage.

Russia sanctions have been a key point of disagreement between Exxon and U.S. government policy in recent years. Exxon and Rosneft collaborate on 10 joint ventures in the Russian Arctic, the Black Sea and western Siberia. Tillerson has said the company would go “back to work” if sanctions are lifted in 2017.

Though Tillerson would come to Trump’s Cabinet with no government experience — he has worked at Exxon since college — he has some claim to knowing his way around the halls of power from having presided over a chain of policy successes and one of the capital’s most formidable corporate lobbying shops.

The Washington operation, whose annual budget has hovered around $12 million for the past six years, is led by Theresa Fariello, who used to work for the Energy Department and former Rep. Jerry Kleczka (D-Wis.) and was a bundler for Hillary Clinton.

The company also retains former Sen. Don Nickles of the Nickles Group, former Hillary Clinton appointee and John Kerry aide David Leiter of ML Strategies, Teresa Gorman of LPI Consulting, and other firms, including Kelley Drye & Warren, Capitol Counsel, McGuireWoods Consulting and Ernst & Young.

Exxon’s lobbyists aren’t bomb-throwers like some other fossil-fuel companies’ can be, but they are known for being ruthlessly efficient on their top issues. When environmental groups began a well-funded campaign charging that the oil giant fraudulently misled the public and investors about its climate change research, Exxon met privately with its congressional Democratic critics — while publicly lambasting activist groups for selectively editing the company’s record.

“It’s a culture of education, of growth and of loyalty,” said a lobbyist who frequently interacts with Exxon. “Call it getting what you want, but at the end of the day, when you give people this much pride and passion in their company, they’re going to be good soldiers for you.”

Exxon lobbyists’ awareness of their own clout makes them more cautious than some rivals because they know how the public or the press might seize on any missteps.

“A movie like ‘Thank You for Smoking’ could never be done with ExxonMobil as the subject,” one former employee said. “Any company that has that kind of profile by definition tends to do things very carefully.”

Exxon often works closely with its trade associations, such as the American Petroleum Institute, as it did last year when Exxon and the rest of the industry celebrated the end of the U.S. ban on crude oil exports as a rider to the year-end government spending deal.

On Russia sanctions, Exxon sometimes works through the U.S.-Russia Business Council, where Tillerson used to be a board member. In May, the group brought a handful of people who work for American companies in Russia, including Caterpillar and JPMorgan, to discuss topics including sanctions with House Democrats.

Randi Levinas, the U.S.-Russia Business Council’s lobbyist, said the House Foreign Affairs Committee Democratic staff invited the group to weigh in on the sanctions bill. The group also lobbied the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, she said.

The Ukraine bill passed the House anyway but stalled in the Senate at the hands of Sen. Bob Corker (R-Tenn.), who was also in the running to be the nation’s top diplomat.

The Senate version was introduced Dec. 9, days before the chamber adjourned for the year, with only Democratic cosponsors. A Corker aide blamed a lack of consensus between the administration and lawmakers from both parties for the absence of bipartisan support in the Senate following bipartisan passage in the House.

Though Exxon’s Washington office typically operates without much interference from headquarters in Irving, Texas, one of Tillerson’s first big initiatives as CEO was to review the company’s position on climate change. According to the book “Private Empire” by journalist Steve Coll, Tillerson wanted the company to find a way to conform to the scientific consensus on climate change without admitting it ever strayed, which could open the door to tobacco company-style lawsuits.

Tillerson’s acceptance of climate science puts him at odds with Trump, who has repeatedly question man-made global warming. As secretary of state, Tillerson would have significant sway over the Trump administration’s climate policy, including the future of its participation in the United Nations pact to cut global emissions, which conservatives abhor. Exxon itself backed the Paris climate deal, which Trump has said he is still deciding whether to cancel.

Still, Tillerson’s position will not spare him a skewering from Democrats, who are eager to use his confirmation hearing to confront him on Exxon’s record. The New York and Massachusetts attorneys general are investigating whether Exxon downplayed the risks of climate change.

“I am deeply troubled by Mr. Tillerson’s vocal opposition to U.S. sanctions on Russia following its illegal invasion, occupation and annexation of Crimea, Ukraine, and his close personal relationship with Vladimir Putin,” Sen. Ben Cardin of Maryland, the ranking Democrat on the Foreign Relations Committee, said in a statement. He added: “Mr. Tillerson has demonstrated he knows the corporate world and can put his shareholders’ interests first, but can he be a respected Secretary of State that puts the national security interests of the American people first? It remains to be seen.”

Does anybody believe the democrats will have the power to block the removal of these sanctions that would allow Trump, ExxonMobil CEO Rex Tillerson and Putin to cash in in that half trillion dollar oil deal when the dems have failed us all miserably over the last 8 years? I don't. The democrats are just a bunch of spineless coward pansies who specialize in losing.

House Republicans To Gut Ethics Watchdog

"WASHINGTON ― As one of their first actions in the new Congress, House Republicans are planning to significantly change the Office of Congressional Ethics, removing the entity’s independence, barring it from investigating anonymous complaints and even changing the group’s name.

Less than 24 hours before the House convenes and votes on its rules for the 115th Congress, Republicans adopted an amendment Monday night, 119 to 74, from Judiciary Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.) that would fundamentally change the OCE. The independent ethics board investigates complaints against members and issues reports to the Ethics Committee.

Specifically, the amendment would place the OCE under the “oversight” of the lenient Ethics Committee and rename it the Office of Congressional Complaint Review. The new group would no longer be able to release information to the public, employ anyone “for a position involving communications with the public,” or directly contact law enforcement without approval. It would also be prohibited from investigating anonymous complaints.

Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said the change would “functionally destroy” the office.

“Republicans claim they want to ‘drain the swamp,’ but the night before the new Congress gets sworn in, the House GOP has eliminated the only independent ethics oversight of their actions,” Pelosi said. “Evidently, ethics are the first casualty of the new Republican Congress.”

Republicans themselves defended the changes Monday night as necessary adjustments to protect members from political witch hunts.

“Now you can’t make a false accusation,” Rep. Paul Gosar (R-Ariz.) told The Huffington Post. “Now you can answer back to the people that make accusations against you. This has been flawed from the very get-go.”

The vote took place in secret, by anonymous ballot and behind closed doors, so it’s not possible to know which representatives approved of the measure. But a number of Republicans take issue with OCE investigating anonymous tips and have been looking for a way to ensure that accusers of wrongdoing must attach their name to a complaint.

“It needs to be aired in the public,” Rep. Tom Rice (R-S.C.) said.

Asked if that would deter people from making complaints, Rice agreed it was a “double-edged sword,” but said it was “too easy to put forth baseless claims with no responsibility.”

The effect, of course, of eliminating OCE’s ability to issue reports is that ethics complaints won’t be aired in public. The Ethics Committee has generally slapped members on the wrist for violations of rules, or simply shrugged them off.

The Office of Congressional Ethics, which was established in early 2008 after a number of scandals ― including the Jack Abramoff controversy of exchanging gifts and donations for votes ― issues public reports of potential wrongdoing with a recommendation to the Ethics Committee on whether to investigate further. This system has allowed the public a view into some investigations that the Ethics Committee later says are not worthy of reprimand ― a common conclusion from a panel that often operates on a partisan doctrine of mutually assured destruction.

But the whole idea of the OCE was to remove politics from ethics investigations.

However, for Rep. Ryan Zinke (R-Mont.) ― Trump’s pick to be interior secretary ― one of the advantages of functionally handling ethics investigations inside the Ethics Committee is that Republicans and Democrats would be in the fold.

“When ethics are involved, I think it’s always helpful to have both sides,” he said. “So it can’t be skewed one way or the other based on politics.”

One of Trump’s major pledges is to “drain the swamp,” but ethics groups were having a hard time seeing how removing the independence of an ethics watchdog that has provided aggressive oversight and detailed reports of potential wrongdoing was in keeping with that pledge.

“This is a shameful move by House Republicans that’ll weaken ethics oversight and make members less accountable for their actions,” said Adam Smith of the liberal advocacy group Every Voice.

Daniel Schuman, the policy director of the activist organization Demand Progress, also had stern words.

“With today’s action  —  taken behind closed doors and with no opportunity for public debate  —  the House now rolls back the clock to an era of corruption and decay. We will all be the worse for it,” Schuman said.

As Schuman points out, another puzzling aspect of the rules change is the short notice. Republicans are fundamentally changing an ethics agency just hours before a vote, while hardly anyone in the public is watching.

The rules Republicans are adopting require legislation to be posted for three days so that members and the public have a chance to read the measures and voice their input.

Asked if they felt these changes were in contravention to the very rules they were adopting, Republicans shrugged off those concerns.

Gosar said the public would find out, and asked what was wrong with making the changes quickly. Reminded that it was a federal holiday ― and that it was nearly 8 p.m. ― Gosar saw no problem.

“The thing about it is, is that it tells us we’re ready to do business and get it done,” he said.

Rice seemed to concede the point ― “I guess technically you could say that” ― but didn’t seem to have a real problem with it.

And GOP Policy Chairman Luke Messer (R-Ind.) said he didn’t have any comment on the short notice of the changes. “I just came out of a three-hour rules meeting,” he said."

Trump issues gag orders on several science agencies

Gag me: Trump's anti-abortion executive order

Quote:
Make America Gagged Again

"President Donald Trump displays one of five executive orders he signed related to the oil pipeline industry on Tuesday. At least one is a massive conflict of interest, because Trump owns stock in the company building the pipeline. And this is the least worrisome thing he did that day.

Welcome to our new, terrifying reality: According to reports, President Donald Trump’s administration has ordered a media blackout of people who work at the Environmental Protection Agency and the United States Department of Agriculture.

Quote:
Sources: Trump Administration Tells EPA To Cut Climate Page From Website

"U.S. President Donald Trump’s administration has instructed the Environmental Protection Agency to remove the climate change page from its website, two agency employees told Reuters, the latest move by the newly minted leadership to erase ex-President Barack Obama’s climate change initiatives.

The employees were notified by EPA officials on Tuesday that the administration had instructed EPA’s communications team to remove the website’s climate change page, which contains links to scientific global warming research, as well as detailed data on emissions. The page could go down as early as Wednesday, the sources said.

“If the website goes dark, years of work we have done on climate change will disappear,” one of the EPA staffers told Reuters, who added some employees were scrambling to save some of the information housed on the website, or convince the Trump administration to preserve parts of it.

The sources asked not to be named because they were not authorized to speak to the media...."

Trump Vows to ‘Destroy’ Law Banning Political Endorsements by Churches

"WASHINGTON — President Trump vowed on Thursday to overturn a law restricting political speech by tax-exempt churches, a potentially huge victory for the religious right and a gesture to evangelicals, a voting bloc he attracted to his campaign by promising to free up their pulpits.

Mr. Trump said his administration would “totally destroy” the Johnson Amendment, a 1954 law that prohibits churches from endorsing or opposing political candidates at the risk of losing their tax-exempt status.

“Freedom of religion is a sacred right, but it is also a right under threat all around us,” Mr. Trump told religious leaders at the National Prayer Breakfast. “That is why I will get rid of and totally destroy the Johnson Amendment and allow our representatives of faith to speak freely and without fear of retribution.”

Quote:
The Johnson Amendment, Which Trump Vows to ‘Destroy,’ Explained

"WASHINGTON — When President Trump told an audience of religious leaders on Thursday that he would ‘destroy’ the Johnson Amendment, he declared his intention to sign a bill that would fundamentally alter a major aspect of the church-state divide that has been a constant in American politics for generations.

But what exactly is the Johnson Amendment?
A restriction for churches and nonprofits

It is one of the brightest lines in the legal separation between religion and politics. Under the provision, which was made in 1954, tax-exempt entities like churches and charitable organizations are unable to directly or indirectly participate in any political campaign on behalf of, or in opposition to, any candidate. Specifically, ministers are restricted from endorsing or opposing candidates from the pulpit. If they do, they risk losing their tax-exempt status.

Considered uncontroversial at the time, it was passed by a Republican Congress and signed into law by President Dwight D. Eisenhower, a Republican. Today, however, many Republicans want to repeal it.
The ‘Johnson’ is Lyndon Johnson

Back when Lyndon B. Johnson was a senator from Texas, he introduced the measure as an amendment to the tax code in 1954. Like many things Johnson did, the goal was to bludgeon a political opponent, in this case a rival in a primary who had the backing of nonprofit groups that were campaigning against him by suggesting he was a communist. Though there was no church involved, according to PolitiFact, churches were covered by the bill as well.
It fulfills a major campaign promise to the right

Mr. Trump promised he would work to repeal the Johnson Amendment as part of his extensive outreach efforts to religious conservatives, a group that took a long time to warm to his candidacy. Eliminating the measure has been a goal of the right. Conservatives have argued that it violates the protections of free speech and free exercise that the First Amendment extends to houses of worship. Courts have not agreed.

Speaking of the implications of a repeal last year, Jerry Falwell Jr., the prominent evangelical leader and Trump supporter, said it would “create a huge revolution for conservative Christians and for free speech.”"

Quote:
"Contrary to Trump’s claim, religious leaders may, as private citizens, speak freely about politics. They just can’t use the tax-exempt resources of houses of worship or other non-profits to do it. The Johnson Amendment helps to maintain the wall of separation between church and state, keeping government out of churches and churches out of government. And polls have shown most people don’t want to hear their clergy endorse candidates."

Trump Vows To ‘Destroy’ Law Banning Church Politicking At National Prayer Breakfast

Quote:
"Tax-exempt 501(c)(3) organizations may either maintain neutrality and stay tax-exempt or endorse candidates and pay taxes. The choice is theirs. As the law stands, religious leaders are free to endorse whomever they choose, so long as they do so on their own time in their capacity as citizens, not from the pulpit and not as church officials using church resources. This rule is known as the Johnson Amendment, after Lyndon B. Johnson, the Texas senator and later president who helped pass the law in 1954."

Magnitude of Trump adviser Flynn's Russia scandal gains clarity

Rachel Maddow: Michael Flynn Resignation 'Almost Unbelievably Dramatic' | The 11th Hour | MSNBC




Quote:
The scandal over Mike Flynn's secret talks with the Russians, explained

"Donald Trump’s national security adviser, Michael Flynn, may be in a lot of trouble.

Late Thursday night, the Washington Post reported that Flynn had called Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak on December 29, the same day that Obama had slapped new sanctions on Russia in retaliation for its hack of the US election. The conversation covered the sanctions, and, according to two officials, suggested that the Trump administration would be rolling back the sanctions in the future.

That would mean Flynn had been actively trying to undermine Obama administration policy while not yet in office — a big, questionably legal no-no. Indeed, the FBI is currently investigating the content of the Flynn calls.

The Trump administration repeatedly and publicly denied that Flynn had spoken to Kislyak about sanctions, even enlisting Vice President Mike Pence to back him up in the media. Flynn himself told the Post on Wednesday that he hadn’t talked about sanctions. But the Post spoke to nine former and current US officials with knowledge of the call, which was actually recorded by US intelligence agencies (as all such high-level calls to the Russian ambassador are). Subsequent reporting from other outlets backed the Post up.

On Thursday, Flynn, through his spokesperson, backed away from the denial. The spokesperson said Flynn “indicated that while he had no recollection of discussing sanctions, he couldn’t be certain that the topic never came up.”

All of which means that it’s very likely that Flynn lied about the content of his talks with the Russian ambassador. That leaves two big outstanding questions:

1. Did Flynn lie to Pence about sanctions, or did Pence knowingly lie to the American public?
2. Did Flynn lie to FBI investigators, too?

The answers could help determine whether Flynn keeps his job — and, potentially, whether he faces criminal charges.

Why the new report is such a problem

Questions about Flynn’s relationship with Russia go all the way back to the campaign, where he served as one of Trump’s top national security staffers. Flynn has spoken very positively about the prospect of partnering with Putin’s regime to fight terrorism, and repeatedly appeared on Russia’s English-language propaganda outlet, RT. Flynn was so in with RT that he had been paid to give a speech at its 10th anniversary dinner in Moscow — where he sat at the head table with Putin himself......"

“I think to this day it’s inexplicable that they were so casual about the investigation of the Russian penetration of the DNC emails.”


Buzzfeed Exposes Continued Russian Involvement In Our Upcoming Midterm Elections!

Quote:
A small sampling of Trump’s words and actions from recent days:

1. After being told of a Texas state senator who wants to require convictions before the state can forfeit property, Trump asks for the senator’s name and says “we’ll destroy his career.”

2. In response to criticism by Senator John McCain that his Yemen operation wasn’t successful, Trump says McCain “only emboldens the enemy! He’s been losing so long he doesn’t know how to win anymore.”

3. After Senator Richard Blumenthal relates that his Supreme Court nominee finds Trump’s criticisms of the courts “demoralizing,” Trump blasts Blumenthal “who never fought in Vietnam when he said for years he had (major lie), now misrepresents what Judge Gorsuch told him.”

4. Trump tells the press that “daughter Ivanka has been treated so unfairly by @Nordstrom,” after Nordstrom dropped her line due to declining sales.

5. Trump tells military officials that America’s “very dishonest press doesn’t want to report” acts of terrorism.

6. Trump threatens to “end the sanctuary cities that have resulted in so many needless deaths,” when there’s no evidence of “needless deaths” in sanctuary cities.

7. When his ban on entry to the United States from 7 Muslim countries, which exempts Christians, is stayed by a federal judge, Trump attacks the “so-called judge,” saying “if something happens blame him and court system.”

8. He tells a meeting of senators that he would have won New Hampshire in the presidential election if not for the “thousands” of people who were “brought in on buses” from neighboring Massachusetts to “illegally” vote in New Hampshire – despite not one iota of evidence this occurred.

9. In that same meeting he Trump taunts Democrats by telling them “Pocahontas is now the face of your party,” his insult of choice for Senator Elizabeth Warren.

10. Trump warns Mexican President Pena Nieto that he’s ready to send U.S. troops to Mexico to stop “bad hombres down there” if Mexico’s military can’t control them.

11. He berates Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull for assuming the U.S. would follow through on its deal to take some refugees that had come to Australia.

12. At a National Prayer Breakfast Trump asks attendees to “pray for former California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger” (who replaced him as the host of NBC’s The Celebrity Apprentice) because the show’s ratings haven’t reached the level they did with Trump as the star.

13. Trump continues to rake in money from his businesses that benefit from his being president.

Every day that goes by, Trump further disgraces the office he holds. His lack of respect for the presidency knows no bounds.

Report: Plan To Force God Into Public Schools Released

New Education Reform Report written for the Trump administration would put the Christian God in public schools.

An alarming report, written by a Christian conservative group with ties to Education Secretary Betsy Devos, plans for the promotion of Christianity in public schools and putting an end to the Department of Education.

The Washington Post reports:

A policy manifesto from an influential conservative group with ties to the Trump administration, including Education Secretary Betsy DeVos, urges the dismantling of the Education Department and bringing God into American classrooms.

The “Education Reform Report” released by the Center for National Policy, a front for radical conservative Christians with “ties to several top White House officials — including Education Secretary Betsy Devos,” states:

We submit this report to the Donald Trump/Betsy DeVos administration with the hope that our organization may be of assistance with the restoration of education in America, in accordance with historic Judeo-Christian principles.

According to the report, education reform under the Trump administration should be based on the following assumptions:

1. All knowledge and facts have a source, a Creator; they are not self-existent.
2. Religious neutrality is a myth perpetrated by secularists who destroy their own claim the moment they attempt to enforce it.
3. Parents and guardians bear final responsibility for their children’s education, with the inherent right to teach, or to choose teachers and schools, whether institutional or not.
4. No civil government possesses the right to overrule the educational choices of parents and guardians.

The committee responsible for the report adds the following pledge:

The CNP Education Committee pledges itself to work toward achievable goals based on uncompromised principles, so that their very success will provoke a popular return to the Judeo-Christian principles of America’s Founders who, along with America’s pioneers, believed that God belonged in the classroom.

The report calls for the dismantling of the Department of Education, claiming it is “unconstitutional, illegal and contrary to America’s education practice for 300 years from early 17th century to Colonial times.”

The Education Department is to be replaced with “Presidency’s Advisory Council on Public Education Reform.” The Council would:

1. Restore Ten Commandments posters to all K-12 public schools.
2. Clearly post America’s Constitution and Declaration of Independence.
3. Encourage K-12 schools to recognize traditional holidays (e.g., Easter, Thanksgiving, Christmas) as celebrations of our Judeo-Christian heritage.
4. Implement select bible classes, such as Chuck Stetson’s Bible Literacy Project.
5. Encourage instruction on U.S. and world history from the Judeo-Christian perspective for middle school and high school history and civics classes.
6. Develop and recommend in-service training on philosophy of education for K-12 faculty based on historical Judeo-Christian philosophy of education.
7. Strongly push states to remove secular-based sex education materials from school facilities, and emphasize parental instruction.

The Washington Post sums it up:

The five-page document produced by the Council for National Policy calls for a “restoration of education in America” that would minimize the federal role, promote religious schools and home schooling and enshrine “historic Judeo-Christian principles” as a basis for instruction.

Bottom line: This is what theocracy looks like.

Issues I really hope Trump actually fixes (I just feel he's insane and can't be trusted):

Immigration:

Anchor babies and the 14th Amendment

Immigration, World Poverty and Gumballs - Updated 2010



Immigration by the Numbers -- Off the Charts



We also need to reduce the numbers of LEGAL immigration from 1 million per year back to where it was previously before congress screwed it up without our permission down to 250k per year - LIKE Canada (& they complain that even 250k is too much & want it reduced). That is something that should be done within the first 100 days of Trump admin. as per NumbersUSA

https://www.facebook.com/numbersusa/

Islam:

These quotes are legitimate reasons never to trust the ideology of Islam:

"We are not here to adopt Western values, we are here to colonize the U.S. (and Canada) and spread Islamic sharia law... Canada has one of the easiest legal systems to penetrate and advance sharia from within ... but if that doesn’t work, we won’t hesitate to use violent jihad." "It should be us, with our understanding of Islam, our principles, colonizing positively the United States of America."
- Tariq Ramadan, Professor of Islamic Studies at Oxford University

"Islam isn't in America to be equal to any other faith, but to become dominant. The Koran, the Muslim book of scripture, should be the highest authority in America, and Islam the only accepted religion on Earth."
- Omar M. Ahmad, founder of Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR)

"I want to see the U.S. become an Islamic nation.”
- Ibrahim Hooper, CAIR Spokesperson

"Ultimately, we (Muslims) can never be full citizens of this country ... because there is no way we can be fully committed to the institutions and ideologies of this country"
- Ihsan Bagby, CAIR

"No we don’t want to democratize Islam, we want to Islamize democracy" "We love you, America – and we want your children for Islam"
- Islam on Capitol Hill. com

"The 9/11 hijackers should be honored as martyrs."
- Warith Deen Umar, Former Muslim Chaplain, New York Prisons

"Muslims cannot accept the legitimacy of the secular system in the United States, for it "is against the orders and ordainments of Allah"
- Imam Zaid Shakir, Former Muslim Chaplain at Yale University

"Greater integration between Islam and the West depends on incorporation of Sharia law into the legal systems of Europe and the U.S."
- Ground Zero Mosque Imam Faisal Abdul Rauf

"Should I act violently in defense of my religion, ABSOLUTELY" "Nothing can stop the spread of Islam"
- Reza Aslan, the so-called "moderate" Muslim

"I am a traitor to America because my religion requires me to be. We pledge to wage jihad for the rest of our lives until either we implant Islam all over the world or meet our Lord as bearers of Islam."
- Samir Khan

"About 61% of the contents of the Koran are found to speak ill of the unbelievers or call for their violent conquest; at best only 2.6 percent of the verses of the Koran are noted to show goodwill toward humanity. About 75% of Muhammad’s biography (Sira) consists of jihad waged on unbelievers."
– Dr. Moorthy Muthuswamy

Three Things About Islam




I hope for good things to happen with trade (NAFTA etc), tax reform and more but, can never tell if the Trump admin can be trusted.

While Trump attacks the media for "fake news," Trump's favorite news spot, Breitbart, is well-known for anti-semitism (hostility to or prejudice against Jews), "alternative facts" ie misinformation and utter biases and bigotry.
