Meet The New Boss - Same As The Old Boss

Mod: There has been a lot of alt-babble about how Donald Trump is a true outsider, and that he is going to "drain the swamp" in Washington DC. But that goes all the way back to last Tuesday. It's four short days later and apparently such phony baloney is no longer operative. Rather than draining the swamp, it would appear President-elect Trump is now drowning in it.

Team Trump is already filled with Washington insiders (CNN link): To shape his administration, President-elect Donald Trump is drawing squarely from the "swamp" he has pledged to drain. Trump's transition team is staffed with long-time Washington experts and lobbyists from K Street, think tanks and political offices.

It's a far cry from Trump's campaign, which ended only Tuesday night, and message that he would "drain the swamp" in Washington. He has advocated congressional term limits and proposed a "five-point plan for ethics reform" that included strengthening restrictions on lobbying, including five-year bans for members and staff of the executive branch and Congress from lobbying, and expanding the definition of lobbyist to prevent more revolving door activity.

But he has so far fully embraced lobbyists within his transition, and all signs point to a heavy influence from longtime Washington Republican circles on his transition. And with Trump mostly skipping detailed policy proposals during his campaign, they can have a powerful impact on his agenda.

Leaders in his transition include former Rep. Mike Rogers, former Reagan Attorney General and Heritage Foundation fellow Edwin Meese, former President of Heritage Edwin Feulner, former Bush administration official and lobbyist Christine Ciccone, former Dick Cheney adviser Ado Machida, former Senate Budget Committee staffer Eric Ueland and Sen. Jeff Sessions' former chief of staff Rick Dearborn. The effort is chaired by New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and Trump counts former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich and Sessions as close advisers.

Mod: If you want real outsiders, you only need to head south from WDC a little to North Carolina. There they are planning on having a celebration of sorts.


The Ku Klux Klan says it will hold a Trump victory parade in North Carolina (Los Angeles Times link): One of the largest Ku Klux Klan groups in the country has announced a parade to celebrate President-elect Donald Trump's win.

The Loyal White Knights of Pelham, N.C., says on its website that its parade will take place on Dec. 3. "TRUMP = TRUMP'S RACE UNITED MY PEOPLE," says the website's front page. No time or location for the event is listed, and a phone call to the number on its website was not returned.

The group has between 150 and 200 members and is "perhaps the most active Klan group in the United States today," according to the Anti-Defamation League. Last year, it was part of a South Carolina protest against the Confederate flag's removal from the state Capitol.

Several Klan groups endorsed Trump. Well-known former Klan leader David Duke, who on Tuesday lost a Senate bid in Louisiana, was also a vocal supporter.

Mod: Of course, if the United States was a real democracy we wouldn't be having this conversation. 

Latest Popular Vote Results 2016: Hillary Clinton Has Almost 400,000 More Votes Than Donald Trump (International Business Times link): As Republican and president-elect Donald Trump continues to transition toward his first term in the Oval Office, his now former opponent Hillary Clinton has opened up an almost 400,000-vote lead in the latest reported popular vote totals.

Democratic nominee Clinton, whose failure to capture the so-called “blue wall” of Midwest states like Wisconsin, Iowa, Michigan and Ohio ultimately handed Trump a 290-232 electoral college victory. But she currently leads the popular vote 60,467,245 to Trump’s 60,071,650 for a difference of 395,595, or 47.7 percent to 47.4 percent, respectively, according to CBS News, CNN, and NBC News.

Mod: Instead we have something called the Electoral College. A venerable institution that has its origins in the politics of slavery times. Believe it or not. So just how wild is that? No wonder the Klan is planning on throwing a parade.

Electoral College is ‘vestige’ of slavery, say Constitutional scholars (PBS link): When the founders of the U.S. Constitution in 1787 considered whether America should let the people elect their president through a popular vote, James Madison said that “Negroes” in the South presented a “difficulty … of a serious nature.”

During that same speech on Thursday, July 19, Madison instead proposed a prototype for the same Electoral College system the country uses today. Each state has a number of electoral votes roughly proportioned to population and the candidate who wins the majority of votes wins the election.

Since then, the Electoral College system has cost four candidates the race after they received the popular vote — most recently in 2000, when Al Gore lost to George W. Bush. Such anomalies and other criticisms have pushed 10 Democratic states to enroll in a popular vote system. And while there are many grievances about the Electoral College, one that’s rarely addressed is one dug up by an academic of the Constitution: that it was created to protect slavery, planting the roots of a system that’s still oppressive today.

“It’s embarrassing,” said Paul Finkelman, visiting law professor at University of Saskatchewan in Canada. “I think if most Americans knew what the origins of the Electoral College is, they would be disgusted.”

Madison, now known as the “Father of the Constitution,” was a slave-owner in Virginia, which at the time was the most populous of the 13 states if the count included slaves, who comprised about 40 percent of its population.

During that key speech at the Constitutional Convention in Philadelphia, Madison said that with a popular vote, the Southern states, “could have no influence in the election on the score of Negroes.”

Madison knew that the North would outnumber the South, despite there being more than half a million slaves in the South who were their economic vitality, but could not vote. His proposition for the Electoral College included the “three-fifths compromise,” where black people could be counted as three-fifths of a person, instead of a whole. This clause garnered the state 12 out of 91 electoral votes, more than a quarter of what a president needed to win.

“None of this is about slaves voting,” said Finkelman, who wrote a paper on the origins of the Electoral College for a symposium after Gore lost. “The debates are in part about political power and also the fundamental immorality of counting slaves for the purpose of giving political power to the master class.”

He said the Electoral College’s three-fifths clause enabled Thomas Jefferson, who owned more than a hundred slaves, to beat out in 1800 John Adams, who was opposed to slavery, since the South had a stronghold.

Mod: The three-fifths equation is kind of interesting. That is just about the Electoral College/Popular Vote ratio California voters enjoy when compared to the voters of places like Nebraska. Get out your calculators and see if I'm not right. Speaking of slavery, can Donald Trump ever get himself enough of that Vladimir Putin?


White House Reviewing Democratic Coalition Report On Trump’s Russian Ties That FBI Ignored (The Huffington Post link): President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden are reviewing the Democratic Coalition’s investigative report highlighting 10 “clear links” that the FBI failed to investigate about our President-elect’s business ties to Russia, and to the Putin regime. It’s named “The Dworkin Report.”

“The FBI missed at least 10 key connections between President-elect Trump and Russia when they conducted their investigation and concluded that our President-elect had no links to the country,” said Scott Dworkin, Senior Advisor to the Democratic Coalition and author of the report. “It is imperative that the American people be made aware of this information.”

The Dworkin Report shows that Donald Trump has incorporated almost 250 registered businesses in Russia. This hard evidence directly contradicts Trump’s prior statements about having no business ties to Russia over the summer.

Additionally, the evidence shows that Trump has travelled to Russia dating back to 1987, before the end of the Soviet Union.

In particular, a visit in 2010 included a tour of St. Petersburg’s Hermitage Museum led by a Russian government official of sufficient ranking, that he earned a personal photo and award from Vladimir Putin earlier this year.

The Democratic Coalition also revealed a 2013 video recorded interview with Donald Trump to MSNBC’s Thomas A. Roberts - which he has confirmed as authentic - where he claimed twice to have a relationship with Putin.

Also in 2012, Donald Trump Jr. told Latvian interviewers in a video recorded interview, that he had been to Russia many times and that the Trump Organization has a significant business there.

Mod: The United States has never had a president suspected of being the agent of a hostile foreign power before. It should be quite a novel experience.

    3. The choice was Clinton or Trump. Are you actually saying the Clinton was more anti-establishment? That's ridiculous and dishonest.

    4. What 4:40 am is saying is that those who choose Trump over Clinton because they believed that he is anti-establishment were conned, since the first thing Trump did after being elected is lining up all the lobbyist and long-time politicians in his team. In other words, neither of the candidates can do their work without established politicians. Anti-establishment is not a real choice, only a perceived one at best.
      ---
      Regardless of this observation, it strikes me as short-sighted to seek an "anti-establishment" outsider in the White House. If you need a doctor, everyone I know would seek out a physician. Nobody I know would seek an anti-establishment outsider (such as a plumber or a business person) and expect better results than from the expert. Why would one think that this is different for a politician?

    4. Get over it Tattler. Your candidate Hillary Clinton lost. No one tried harder than the Tattler, the mainstream media like the New York Times and MSNBC, the political elites from both sides, the Hollywood celebrities, to defeat Donald Trump and you failed. No offense but I wouldn't want to be included in that bunch. The ordinary folks came out to vote and took back their country. I know it hurts but stop your crying and salute your next President.

    5. The ordinary folk cast more votes for Clinton than they did Trump. That said, the real deal breaker for me was the revelation that Trump is in the pocket of Vlad Putin, and has been for quite a while. You might not agree with me, but in my opinion support for Trump is synonymous with treason. He owes many millions of dollars to Russian oligarchs, and he is about to pay them back big time for their generous support of his cheesy resorts and hotels. To me this is far more important than anything you have brought up. It used to be the left that was suspected of giving aid and comfort to the enemy. Now it is the right. A lot will be coming out about this in the next few weeks. It will receive all the coverage I can give it here.

    7. Let's stop with the Hillary Clinton won the popular vote canard. It has long been a Democratic strategy to let as many immigrants into the country as possible and make them dependent on the government to insure they vote for the party that gives them the handout. Those immigrants flock to the big cities and swell those populations. Sorry but that's not the "ordinary man" as you put it. I don't want a few big population centers like Los Angeles, New York or Phiidelphia determining the outcome of every election. That's why we have the electoral college. Those three cities no matter how large their population do not represent my views or the views of the real "ordinary man". This election demonstrated that resoundingly.

    12. After the election, Putin now admits that he had close connections to Trump during his campaign. What could be his motivation to do this now? In order to understand that one needs to comprehend the classical dialectic thinking on Putin's part: Start to sow the seed of doubt in the electorate.
      He has done this skillfully through the hacking of the server of the DNC and the steady release of meaningless, but hyped-up information on Wikileaks.
      Now, that Clinton is out of the picture, his next target is Trump. He will publicly say some nice things about Trump, but will try to undermine his presidency, maybe not immediately because Trump might be useful for Putin's expansion plans, but the end goal is to weaken the US and to strengthen Russia.

      Once the electorate realizes that Trump
      - is not anti-establishment but pro establishment
      - is not bringing back the coal mines and other "low skill" manufacturing jobs
      - keeps importing his business goods right out of China, and does not manufacture it here in the rust belt
      - is not going to repeal Obamacare
      - is not building the wall
      - is not banning Muslims
      - is not deporting 11 million illegal immigrants
      - is really only interested in enriching himself on the expense of everyone else,
      they will feel betrayed like the ones who attended Trump University. And with enough uncontrolled anger that has fed him through the election, nothing good will come out of this. Putin's goal is to incite a civil war in the US. Nothing could be a better outcome for him than that. We already have a stronger than I ever thought possible militarization of the police, that -frankly- look like we are already living in Russia. Now, we need to find a better reason to use it.

      I hope for all of us that this is not happening, but I do not see that Trump grasps the gravity of the situation. He has no experience with politics on the international stage and the dialectic thinking of the communist side. All he sees is that he won and that it is unfair if someone protests against him. That's not how you unite a divided country.

      Melania, do us the favor and take that Twitter account away from your adult "boy".

  12. Hey mod add this:
    Okay, let’s address this “Hillary might win the popular vote, isn’t that Electoral College situation just awful” thing head on.
    No, it’s not awful. It’s great, and it protects the importance of your vote. It’s also uniquely American and demonstrates yet again the once-in-creation brilliance of the Founding Fathers.
    First of all, she’s probably not going to win the actual number of votes cast. She may win the number of votes counted, but not the votes cast.
    States don’t count their absentee ballots unless the number of outstanding absentee ballots is larger than the state margin of difference. If there is a margin of 1,000 votes counted and there are 1,300 absentee ballots outstanding, then the state tabulates those. If the number of outstanding absentee ballots wouldn’t influence the election results, then the absentee ballots aren’t counted.
    Thank G-d we have that, or else California and N.Y. would determine every election. Every time. But the Electoral College brilliantly smooths out the variances in the voting proclivities among states and regions. Farmers in the middle of the country and importers and exporters on the shore get roughly equal say, as do Madison Ave. execs and factory workers in Tennessee.
    Shortcomings? Sure. The E.C. can make an R vote meaningless in a very few heavily D states or vice versa. But without the Electoral College, the country’s entire population is subject to the disproportionate voting preferences of the few most populous states.

Trump has the opportunity to realign the electorate that will destroy the Democratic Party. That because conservative ideas really work.

    1. Christie is fat. And he will be the first member of the Trump administration to go to jail. But certainly not the last.

    2. 11:00am's comment about Christie's weight, especially his vehement, unfiltered directness about it, help him feel good about himself and life.

      Maybe we should join 11:00 in feeling good about ourselves through similar non-PC directness and call 11:00 and his chosen leader the troglodytes they are.

      Feels good doesn't it? And so accurate, too.

    3. I just hope they find a jail cell big enough for him.

    4. He is probably going to need a bigger toilet.

  21. We're getting these people too:
    Jeffrey Eisenach, a consultant who has worked for years on behalf of Verizon and other telecommunications clients, is the head of the team that is helping to pick staff members at the Federal Communications Commission.
    Michael Catanzaro, a lobbyist whose clients include Devon Energy and Encana Oil and Gas, holds the “energy independence” portfolio.
    Michael Torrey, a lobbyist who runs a firm that has earned millions of dollars helping food industry players such as the American Beverage Association and the dairy giant Dean Foods, is helping set up the new team at the Department of Agriculture.

    3. Maybe a few trump supporters could help me out a bit? So, I'm trying to help my 14 year old daughter brainstorm a bit for a school paper. The paper is supposed to explain how it's ok for a man to assault/grope a woman. Since we just elected a loser that lives that way, can you Dump supporters give me some advice on how to explain that type of behavior is acceptable to a young lady just so she'll understand throughout her life?
      Thanks

  23. Clinton is now leading Trump by 1.8 million votes. There are millions more ballots to be counted in California and New York, and her total popular vote victory margin could more than double.
