  • The Intellectual Argument for the Trump Presidency

    01/06/2017 9:29:35 AM PST · by Kaslin · 4 replies ^ | January 6, 2017 | Suzanne Fields
    Everyone's wondering just what kind of president Donald Trump will make. Democrats and Republicans, liberals and conservatives, and Tories and Whigs (there must still be a few of them tucked away somewhere) who are still talking to one another have embraced timid and tentative expectations. This did not include the haters, the Never Trumpers or the soreheads for Hillary Clinton, who would see the nation fail just to prove themselves right about him. Most of us who appreciate the democratic values and the republic's constitutional framework haven't had a clue as to the attitudes and qualities that will rest comfortably...

    Washington Examiner ^ | 1/5/17 2:29 PM | By NICOLE DURAN (@DURANNI1) •
    Rep. Ed Perlmutter, D-Colo., indicated Thursday that he is exploring all possible procedures at his disposal to delay certification of the Electoral College results during a joint session of Congress on Friday. Perlmutter hasn't committed to putting up a roadblock to finalizing the results, but his office confirmed that he is "reviewing certain laws and the U.S. Constitution as it pertains to efforts to undermine our electoral process." The rules allow lawmakers to protest the counting of Electoral College votes, but because the votes are counted during a joint session of Congress, a senator would also have to protest the...

    In a year when there were hundreds seismic shifts amid the tectonic plates within the body politic, one of the most important was the revelation that Media Polling is just as brutally biased as the media entities who present the polling results. With election 2016 behind us, and before 2017 arrives, the truth behind the intentionally constructed deception must not simply fade back into the shadows. Never again should the American voter trust the polling presented by corporate media. Everything about it is a financed and manufactured fraud.

    On Monday, it was Hillary Clinton who was losing a stream of Electoral College votes to surprising individuals, not Donald Trump. Four Democratic electors in Washington State alone declined to vote for Clinton, who won the state overwhelmingly, and instead threw their votes behind Standing Rock activist Faith Spotted Eagle, former Secretary of State Colin Powell. The Daily Beast reports that Powell, a longtime Republican who supported the Democratic nominee in the last three elections, actually received three of the four rogue votes.

    Hillary Clinton is "hurting" following her election loss to Donald Trump, California Sen. Dianne Feinstein said Wednesday. "I think it is fair to say she’s hurting," Feinstein said during an interview with MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell. The Democrat had lunch with Clinton last week when the former secretary of state visited Capitol Hill to attend Nevada Sen. Harry Reid’s retirement party. "She is brave," Feinstein said of Clinton. "She is a real professional in the sense of her values, care, concern. I think all of us know who watch that campaign, it was a very hard campaign for her - the...

"No one on the Internet asked or looked at what people answer. No one monitored how many people like Trump’s messages on Twitter. That’s how we saw for the first time that old sociology turned out to be weaker that the internet, and Clinton lost," Klimenko said. Clinton’s defeat was due to the...

    Michelle Obama says she wants nothing to do with politics now, but oddsmakers still say she’s got the best chance of any Democrat of winning the White House in four years. Bovada, an online gambling site, says the odds of Mrs. Obama winning are 12-to-1. The next-best Democrats, Sen. Tim Kaine and Elizabeth Warren, get odds of 14-to-1. By contrast three Republicans have higher odds: President-elect Donald Trump is a 2-to-1 bet to repeat, while Vice President-elect Mike Pence and House Speaker Paul D. Ryan are each given 10-to-1 odds.

    The Republicans have 8 seats, Dems have 23 seats, and the 2 Dem-leaning Independents are in this Class.
