    Donald Trump’s critics on the left are enraged with his handling of the Carrier Corporation’s intention to move their Indianapolis operation to Mexico. He has possibly been slightly overgenerous in his favors to Carrier in order to get them to reconsider sending 1100 jobs out of the country. Let us compare the alternative choices of other US companies who consider similar moves in the future: Cost of an AC unit produced and sold in the US: $4000 approx. Labor cost to produce (@ 20% average): $800. Tax savings (under Trump) to produce in US $4000 x (35%-20%): $600. Note: Current...

    The group of Democratic electors who are trying to prevent Donald Trump from becoming president have been in contact with Clinton allies. Politico reports: Advocates of the long-shot bid to turn the Electoral College against Donald Trump have been in contact with close allies of Hillary Clinton, according to multiple sources familiar with the discussions, but the Clinton camp — and Clinton herself — have declined to weigh in on the merits of the plan… In a sign of the sensitivity of the issue, former Clinton campaign officials declined repeated requests to comment on the Electoral College effort. DNC officials...

    President-elect Donald Trump has become more popular among New York voters since his stunning win on election night, according to a Siena College poll released Monday. Forty-one percent of voters in the state now hold a favorable opinion of the president-elect ― the highest ever favorable rating in any Siena poll of New York. Trump’s favorable rating is 7 points higher now than it was when the college conducted its last poll just before Election Day. Likewise, his unfavorable rating has dropped by 10 percent in the same period, from 63 to 53 percent. Trump lost the largely Democratic state...

    Mediaite ^ | November 30, 2016 | Justin Baragona
    President-elect Donald Trump ran on a platform of being extremely tough on immigration. One of his vows to voters was that he’d get rid of President Barack Obama’s executive actions, which could include those that provided protections to young undocumented immigrants from being deported. One Republican lawmaker and Trump critic is now prepping legislation that would keep those protections in place in case Trump moves forward with his pledge. Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) has said he is working with both Democrats and Republicans in order to protect immigrants, known as Dreamers, who willingly came forward to give their information in...

    The Washington Post's The Plum Line ^ | November 28, 2016 | Paul Waldman
    Donald Trump is either a mad genius who has cracked the media code in a way no politician before him was able to do, or he’s a kind of political Mr. Magoo, stumbling randomly about yet achieving one success after another. We may never know which it is. But if we’re going to maintain our democracy, we have to figure out how to deal with the way Trump successfully manipulates the media. Perhaps, as some have suggested, Trump tweeted his ridiculous lie about millions of fraudulent votes on Sunday in order to distract people from this lengthy investigation in the...

    Hillary Clinton’s lead in the popular vote has increased now to 2.1 million votes and counting. She has received more votes than any other white or female candidate in the history of the United States. Indeed, Donald Trump may have garnered more votes than any other Republican in history, but he’s getting trounced in the popular vote. By the time counting has finished, Clinton’s 2+ million vote lead over Donald Trump will be a bigger vote lead than 28 eventual Presidents had over their opponents. It’s not exactly a landslide (Obama beat McCain by 9 million votes, and Romney by...

    Washington, D.C. - Congressman Charles B. Rangel introduced, H.J.

This legislation is the House companion bill to S.J.Res.41, introduced by Senator Barbara Boxer (D-CA) on November 15, 2016. “I came to Congress on the heels of the Civil Rights Movement, and I know how hard we fought for the sacred right to vote,” said Rangel. “To protect it, everyone should have access to the vote, and every vote must count.

    The rude ambush of Vice-President elect Mike Pence by a cast member of the Broadway Musical, “Hamilton”, has outraged a large cross-section of the American citizenry. The actor expressed alarm and anxiety that the Trump-Pence Administration will not protect and defend “a diverse group of men and women of different colors, creeds and orientations”, and uphold their inalienable rights. The liberal left likes to preach that there should be a “conversation” between both sides to settle our differences. But when a cheap shot is taken in a venue where a response is not practicable, THAT AIN’T CONVERSATION, BUDDY, THAT’S “BULLYING”....

    ARD/SPIEGEL: Mr. President, Donald Trump won the election, revealing massive discontent and rifts within American society. Did the amount of anger actually surprise you? Obama: I think it's important not to overstate what happened. The truth is that America has been closely divided politically for quite some time. That was reflected in some of the challenges I had with the Republican Congress. What was unusual in this election is that my approval in the United States is as high as it has been since I was elected. And the economy is going relatively well. I think what is true is...

    A senior adviser to New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio has come under fire after posting a photo on Facebook that included his sister holding up a sign that said "F--- Whiteness," The New York Daily News reported Thursday. Lincoln Restler posted a photo earlier this week of his parents and sister. His father held a sign that said "Black + Brown + Immigrant Lives Matter," and his mother held a sign that said "Love." His sister's was more profane. Restler said he took the photo when he and his mother "took to the streets to stand in solidarity...

    We’re finally done with Election 2016 and to almost everyone’s surprise the new President-elect does not wear a pantsuit. How did Donald Trump pull off the biggest political upset in modern history? Does anyone really know for sure why and how it happened and how nobody saw it coming? Here are the reasons in my opinion, anyway, in no particular order. The email scandal that continued to dog Hillary finally bit her in the ass completely when FBI director James Comey found the Weiner-grams that linked back to her and her lack of good judgment. Comey ultimately wussed out on...

    Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) said Thursday it would be an “outrage” if President-elect Donald Trump followed through with threats to prosecute Hillary Clinton over her use of a private email server as secretary of state. “It would be almost beyond comprehension to think that a new president would be involved in the prosecution of his opponent who ended up getting some 2 million more votes than he did,” Sanders told reporters at a Christian Science Monitor breakfast. “It would completely divide this country. It would be an outrage,” he said. “I would hope very, very, very much that Mr. Trump...

    Gov. Andrew Cuomo launched a statewide emergency call-in system today to deal with a burst of racially and religiously-motivated incidents following the incendiary election of Donald Trump to the presidency. The Democratic governor rolled out the toll-free number—(888) 392-3644—in Rochester this afternoon, and encouraged New Yorkers who think they may have been the victim of a bias crime to ring. Since Trump’s shocking victory one week ago on a fiercely anti-immigration platform, spray-painted swastikas have proliferated at college campuses like the New School and the State University of New York at Geneseo, in the ultra-Orthodox Jewish enclave of Crown Heights...

    “One of the things they need to hear from me is that the Virginia Republican party values religious liberty and we stand with them, and they’re part of this community too.” This is just more muddying of the waters. Religious liberty is not at issue in any way. Trump has not called for anything that would restrict religious liberty. Religious liberty is not a license to commit treason or sedition. It is not an all-purpose justification for subversion. These Virginia Republicans are not only disloyal to the leader of their party, but severely muddled thinkers. The All Dulles Area Muslim...

    Hillary Clinton blamed the renewed FBI inquiry into her State Department email system for blunting her momentum in the presidential election and the closure of that inquiry two days before Election Day for energizing voters for Donald Trump. "There are lots of reasons why an election like this is not successful," Clinton told top donors on a farewell conference call Saturday. "But our analysis is that (FBI Director James B.) Comey's letter raising doubts that were groundless, baseless, proven to be, stopped our momentum," she said. "We dropped, and we had to keep really pushing ahead to regain our advantage...

That is what this election is all about, this wave of anger at DC. It really is not about Trump. Trump is merely riding the wave. How many times have we heard about people who...

For the past several weeks, WikiLeaks has published emails obtained from a hack on campaign chairman John Podesta’s personal account. Many messages published have included exchanges that have caused headaches for the Clinton campaign. The Clinton campaign has...

Clinton also appeared to tell the audience of Democratic donors that Hillary Clinton “deserves” to be elected president. Clinton’s comments took place at an October 2015 private fundraiser for Hillary Clinton in Cheseapeake, Maryland. The transcript of Clinton’s remarks were published by WikiLeaks alongside thousands of emails sent and received by Clinton campaign chair John Podesta. In the speech, Clinton admitted that “there are lots of people in...

She brought up her rival, Republican nominee Donald Trump, saying he would reverse the progress LGBT rights have made in the US over the last few years. Trump...

The warrant will allow the Federal Bureau of Investigation to examine the emails to see if they are relevant to its probe of the private email server used for government work by Clinton, the Democratic presidential nominee, while she was secretary of state from 2009 to 2013.

    The 40-million strong African American community deserved "new deal" to transform their communities, safety and economic prospects as well as the future of their children, Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump told a campaign rally in Charlotte, North Carolina. The city of Charlotte was the site of a mass-murder that shocked the United States last year when nine African Americans holding a Bible study in their church were shot dead. A young white racist Dylann Storm Roof is facing trial charged with the crime. "[It is time for] a new deal for black America," Trump said in on Wednesday. "I am...

    Top Black Lives Matter activist DeRay McKesson on Wednesday endorsed Hillary Clinton for president. "Clinton’s platform on racial justice is strong: It is informed by the policy failings of the past and is a vision for where we need to go," McKesson wrote in a Washington Post op-ed. Clinton hosted a meeting with McKesson and other Black Lives Matter activists in the fall to discuss the Campaign Zero plan to end police violence....

    ObamaCare has suddenly been injected back into the 2016 election debate, on the news of the law’s 25%-plus average premium increase for 2017. Even Donald Trump is talking about it. With only two weeks to go, this is a moment for voters to hold accountable the Democrats who imposed this debacle on the country over voter objections. Next year’s enormous price increases are merely the latest expression of ObamaCare’s underlying problems, and the dysfunction is undermining the health security of Americans who lack employer coverage. A wave of major insurers have quit the exchanges, and those that are left have...

    Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump received widespread condemnation for his refusal to prematurely accept the outcome of the 2016 presidential election. Trump told moderator Chris Wallace at last Wednesday night’s final debate that he “Will look at it at the time. … I’ll keep you in suspense.” Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton warned Trump was “talking down our democracy” while The New York Times called it a blatant “contempt for democracy” and many others were infuriated that a presidential candidate would have the gall to publicly pronounce a distrust of government. In fact, these divine notions of American governance couldn’t be...

    WikiLeaks has twice warned Tim Kaine that he might be in for a "surprise" – but the vice presidential candidate says he's not worried. Despite multiple warnings from the organization that has been steadily publishing stolen emails from Hillary Clinton's campaign manager John Podesta, Mrs. Clinton's running mate says he isn't threatened by the possibility of his correspondences going public, since he is a "regular human being" with nothing to be "overly embarrassed about." Nasty emails are "not my norm," the Democratic vice presidential nominee told the Associated Press on Saturday, adding, "I do have a temper so, I mean,...
