The Trump Presidency

Recommended Posts

even if Trump eventually goes down in flames, his election (well, you know, it's actually in question because technically it hasn't happened yet :roll:) was worth it for stories like this. They just keep coming. Any parent who considers it an honor if their kid is admitted to Michigan (allegedly one of the most prestigious public universities in the nation) might wanna consider another school. I would say I blame my generation--baby boomers--for producing kids like this, but I think by now a lot of them are the spawn of Gen-X'ers, right?? Please, let it be some other group! lol

 

U. of Michigan Gives Students Play-Doh, Coloring Books to Cope With Trump

 

https://pjmedia.com/trending/2016/11/10/u-of-michigan-gives-students-play-doh-coloring-books-to-cope-with-trump/1/

 

“People are frustrated, people are just really sad and shocked,” said Trey Boynton, the director of multi-ethnic student affairs at the University of Michigan. “A lot of people are feeling like there has been a loss. We talked about grief today and about the loss of hope that this election would solidify the progress that was being made.”

 

There was a steady flow of students entering Ms. Boynton’s office Wednesday. They spent the day sprawled around the center, playing with Play-Doh and coloring in coloring books, as they sought comfort and distraction.

This Story Should Dominate the News Until Trump Is Sworn In

 

Why in Christ's sweet name isn't this thundering through the news cycle right now? Why aren't hundreds of national-security reporters all over it? We have elected a guy who may well have traded what little integrity he has to a vicious autocrat and his thieves-in-law. (Note to anyone who takes exception: This is not "red-baiting" because these crooks are not Red.) We know he can't get a loan from most American banks, so he has to go overseas for a lot of his financing. What banks is he tied into, and are any of those banks tied into the Russian government? Whom does he owe and how much does he owe them? And how do they plan to collect?

Ok I clicked on the article.  It says there was contact with Trump.  Nothing more specific on what t was about?

Yet, to some of you, if the president-elect isn't on 'your team,' there's simply no good move that he / she could make. It's a lose-lose situation. They are either promoting policies you didn't vote for or they proved to be phony / liars who weren't true to their word. Democrats were appalled by the idea that Donald Trump said he might not secede but now I see Democrats who not only aren't willing to secede but are promoting protests that are turning into riots which is further dividing this country. I understand the frustration but you have to give him a real chance first, before you go nuts about it. Consider that maybe our system elected him for reason and think positive; at least for now.

 

Here's a thought experiment for you: Is there any person in history, past or present, American or not, that, were he or she placed in charge of your country's government, you would have serious problems with and not accept that person as your representative leader? The line of "acceptable" versus not is of course different for every individual, however for many people, based on his words and even actions, that line has been crossed with the election of Donald Trump.

While I can't say that I'm happy Trump was elected as I was not a supporter, I can say that I'm uber ecstatic that the scumbag Clinton's won't be allowed back in the WH.  The last thing we needed was Bill hanging out in his PJ's like Hue Hefner chasing interns around the WH in between his $500K speaking engagements.  While Hillary and her cronies worked to bring more of the private sector under government control allowing for even more and deeper corruption.

 

Now that Trump will be the next president, here's my wish list to get working on:

 

1. Slow the gravy train from a geyser to a trickle, incentivize people to contribute to society.

2. Cut taxes for everyone, allowing for economic expansion and jobs for anyone who "wants to" work, especially those who are taken off the government gravy train.  Simply grow the economy.

3. Align with any & all against radical Islam and those that support them.  Going down the same path we were on would've lead to all out war in the region within 5 years.

4. Get illegal immigration under at least moderate control, physical wall not that big a deal for me.

5. Balance fiscal budgets and begin paying off the $20,000,000,000,000 Chinese credit card.

6. Convert Obamacare into Commonsensecare, basically slice off the stupid parts of it that are causing rates to skyrocket for everyone, especially for small business owners.

7. Rebuild the military with new weaponry and a bigger active duty force to the point where the US military acts as a deterrent, preventing wars from ever beginning.

8. Create more safeguards to prevent special interests and corrupt politicians from controlling the country.

9. Review of treaties & alliances, separate our true friends from nothing more than check cashers, stop giving away hard-earned money for nothing.

10. Appoint Supreme Court judges that will protect the constitution, not create a new one.

 

That's my starter list, could care less "how" he does these things, just get them done.

 

This is the sort of magical thinking that got us Trump.  You want to reduce government revenue, boost government spending, and pay down the debt?  Don't care how it's done?  You do know that discretionary domestic spending is a small fraction of our government expenditures, the "gravy train" you speak of a mere sliver?

Again I was not a Trump supporter (just anti-sleeze, aka Clinton's), but of the promises he made pre-election, those are the things I want to see get done.  I could care less about a physical wall, and would like to see some form of medical insurance program, preferably one that pays to have and doesn't cause rates to skyrocket.

Why? Is there something especially enticing about the establishment in American politics, once you're in? How does a Billionaire sell out so soon? I'm starting to believe in this illuminati, mind control stuff. I feel like if Hitler himself ran for POTUS and effectively won, he would simply find so much comfort in the old boy's club that he would lose sight of what his original plans were, let alone find the motivation to institute any sort of real change.

If you throw out California, the Clinton crime machine loses the popular vote by over 2M votes, and the electoral college is a complete blowout.  The last thing we need is the land of nuts and flakes calling the shots for the entire country.  A state with a European-born, womanizing Republican governor simply because he was a movie star.  And that has the highest % of 1st generation voters with strong ties to their mother countries (Mexico, India, Southeast Asia, China, Middle East, etc.) and their interests.  If anything, California's role in electing the president of the U.S. should be diluted, not amplified.

It's funny that you think this about losing the election, instead of about what the winning candidate said and promised to do for the last 18 months. I'm sure if we looked back at your posts, you were also critical of Tea Party protests and other astroturfing from the Right during the last 8 years.

TELL DONALD TRUMP TO REJECT HATE AND BIGOTRY

To President-elect Donald Trump: Honor your pledge to America

 

During your campaign, you denigrated people because of their race, their religion, their ethnicity, their gender, their disability, and more.

 

You named far-right extremists as advisers, circulated racist and anti-Semitic tweets, and refused to immediately disavow the endorsement of a known neo-Nazi.

 

Now, haters of all stripes – from white nationalists to anti-Muslim and anti-LGBT extremists – are celebrating your victory.

 

You must distance yourself from them.

 

You have pledged to be a president for “all Americans” and to “bind the wounds of division” in our country.

 

If you mean what you say, you must do two things.

 

First, you must publicly disavow all forms of bigotry.

 

Second, you must assure the country that no one associated with a hate group or any form of extremism will have a position, a voice or influence in your administration.

 

The American people deserve no less from their president.

It would be so much easier to redirect all of that energy protesting, rioting and being violent, towards obliterating or re-structuring the electoral college - if they had made the electoral college easy enough to understand in the first place. I think almost everyone has a somewhat general idea of how it works; I do remember the basics from 7th grade social studies but I'm really struggling here at age 30 and I'm sure a lot of others are as well. Who are these people? Who exactly is the electorate and how are they chosen and by what standards? I was doing a little research online and even the constitution is pretty vague about it's criteria / standards. There just isn't that much information available about what goes on. The electoral college (assuming they're highly educated) seems like a pretty good safeguard against dumbss[/member]es electing a dumbss[/member] and I admit, this is probably the closest we've ever come to actually needing an electoral college to go rogue but if they just meet together as usual and vote for this expected outcome when Hillary won the popular vote, I suppose one could argue that they have no purpose to begin with. Especially since Donald isn't your typical Republican and electors are legally bound by the state and face fines for voting against their party.

 

Here's a cool article. It's about why the electoral college isn't going to go rogue (which I don't think they provide an open-shut case for at all) but it's very informative at least in terms of how the majority of the population can get screwed by this.

 

http://www.vox.com/policy-and-politics/2016/11/11/13588048/electoral-college-petition-clinton-trump

 

It'll be interesting to see if Democrats start pushing for some sort of constitutional amendment. I don't see a total obliteration of the electoral college happening but maybe some sort of restructuring, if possible, would be fair. All three times that this has happened, it's screwed over Democrats. It just seems silly that a majority can lose to a minority.

 

Looking quicky at the electoral map, I see Trump has 5 states (upper-west, including Alaska) that probably don't deserve the minimum 3 electoral votes as they're seriously sparsely populated. For God's sake, Montana's largest city is Billings and it has like 22k people) compared to Clinton's two eastern states that have 3 and actually deserve 3. D.C. actually seems like it deserves more than 3, based on population but I don't have time to research all of that right now. Does D.C. just get 3 by default regardless of population?

 

I admit the system seems like garbage and it's worth looking into changing. From my understanding, it was designed so that sparsely populated states wouldn't be disenfranchised but I just don't think that's as relevant of a concern as it once was.

According to the description with a video posted Friday on YouTube, a man in a "plaid shirt and camo cap" said something about being glad to have "kept his guns" to a black woman sitting next to him.

 

The woman started "crying and freaking out," and the United Airlines crew members were forced to separate the two individuals.

 

The 'gun nut' is the problem? Not the woman who through a hissy fit so dramatic it nearly grounded a jumbo jet - over a brief, harmless quip? The complete and utter lack of emotional control and stability a woman like that has is what amazes me. People like her need to grow up.

BREAKING: Obama Administration Officially Investigating Trump/Russia Connection (DETAILS)

 

 

By Georgia Bristow -

November 12, 2016

 

...definitive links between President-elect Donald Trump’s and Russia.

 

An investigative report has been released, titled “The Dworkin Report,” that details several links that went investigated by the FBI showing our president-elect’s ties to Russia and more specifically his links to Russian dictator Vladimir Putin’s administration.

 

In The Dworkin Report, it’s shown that President-elect Donald Trump doesn’t just “have ties” with Russia, he’s incorporated 250 registered businesses there. Which is unusual, considering that it contradicts what our all-so-wholesome and honest president-elect said about him having no ties whatsoever to Russia.

 

http://bipartisanreport.com/2016/11/12/breaking-obama-administration-officially-investigating-trumprussia-connection-details/

 

I'm not sure how how credible this news site is. They don't actually give any information regarding the FBI / Obama Administration investigating this.

It's interesting.  Given that Trump didn't release his tax returns, i'd be in favor of FBI investigation on his ties with Russia.  If nothing else, they should call him in and say "tell us everything before we investigate..."

"Nearly every problem that we have in the USA -- unaffordable health care, prison overpopulation, hyper militarization, climate change, racism, gun violence, poverty, poor education, urban sprawl and others -- cannot be positively addressed because bribery and conflicts of interest are legal under campaign finance laws which protect the uber-wealthy and the narrow self-interests who grossly benefit from our afflictions."
