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.http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/hillary-clinton-popular-vote-victory_us_5827a2c5e4b02d21bbc91bbc
So if the country decides the electoral college is no longer a viable institution, now is the time to disband it.
On Fox, Brigitte Gabriel Revives Myth That Obama Is A Muslim To Attack His Anti-Terrorism PoliciesGabriel: "Obama Is On A Mission To Protect The Image Of Islam" Because He "Was Born Into The Muslim Faith, Raised By A Devout Muslim Father, In An Islamic Country"http://mediamatters.org/video/2015/01/13/on-fox-brigitte-gabriel-revives-myth-that-obama/202125
So much incorrect information around anymore it's hard to separate the truth from the lies. Fabrications have ruined many a lives.
The local VFW had an extremist corporate speaker last year. Shame that the veterans get manipulated like that.
Correction. He was a 4 star admiral in the United States Navy and Commander in Chief of the Pacific Fleet and Deputy Chief of Naval Operations meaning the number 2 man in the Navy. He currently serves on anti terrorism committees.
Protester Shot in Portland as Anti-Trump Marches Continue in More Than 17 States for a Third Night. The headlines would be the same no matter who was to win the presidency in this election. This country has been so divided by lies and Russian influence that I consider this whole fiasco an attack on the American way of life. Unfortunately it's only going to get worse, the facts mam, just the facts.
The great majority of these protests are peaceful.Does anyone think that would hold true if Clinton had won, and the protestors were Trumpers?
The protesters are patriots.
They are not patriots, most of them don't even know why they are out there. If you ask them, they will vonit up the liberal agenda. What they are doing is shameful. Pulling a man from his car and beating him because they thought he voted for Trump. Real patriots!
If you look at what the veterans have been through it's understandable that they are concerned of the likes of past wars and the threats to our country. They fought and died for our freedom and still are.
Yes and we appreciate it. Unfortunately this post is a sea of old white men in a diverse world.Their days are numbered let them indulge themselves.
Just thank them. It is because of their sacrfice that you are able to indulge yourself and enjoy your freedom of speech on this blog. Stop with the racist anti-white spin on everything. You call trump supporters racist and in the same breath attack people for "old white men" and say their days are numbered....disgusting.
Trump and the upper class won by pitting the middle class against the lower class. The VFW speaker is part of the same racket.
5:28am. Fact: In the Muslim faith, if your Father is Muslim, so are you.Obama and his sister spent time with their Father in Indonesia (*for the mentally challenged one on this site, Barry's step-dad)You recall; that's when he ate "dog" for dinner and was given studies in the Koran. That's just what you do in Indonesia; a mostly Muslim Country.
I hate liars.
You eat pig I eat dog stop dividing your time is done.
6:26- class, class,class. You sound like a elitest to me. 6:58 is right, as long as we are divided we are weak. "A nation divided against itself cannot long endure."
A nation with a "president" that smooches the fanny of Vladimir Putin will not stand long. Real patriots fight. Phony patriots join the tea party and capitulate to America's enemies.
RACKET? Lets not put our heads in the sand, lets be open to listening to both sides of the story. Just because we think we know it all we don't, there are 2 sides to every story. You've heard there is a little truth to every lie, we just need to sift through the BS to find it.
Why to you think extremists have gained strength in the Middle East and in America?
George W. Bush's war in Iraq, of course. Destabilized the entire Middle East. Even Trump said that. Any sane person who doesn't let Rush 4F Limbaugh do their thinking knows that as well.
Commander in chief elect:Back in 1968, at the age of 22, Donald J. Trump seemed the picture of health.He stood 6 feet 2 inches with an athletic build; had played football, tennis and squash; and was taking up golf. His medical history was unblemished, aside from a routine appendectomy when he was 10.But after he graduated from college in the spring of 1968, making him eligible to be drafted and sent to Vietnam, he received a diagnosis that would change his path: bone spurs in his heels.The diagnosis resulted in a coveted 1-Y medical deferment that fall, exempting him from military service as the United States was undertaking huge troop deployments to Southeast Asia, inducting about 300,000 men into the military that year.The deferment was one of five Mr. Trump received during Vietnam. The others were for education.
Chickenhawk. Just like the last unelected president, George W. Bush.
The irony here is that Trump ran as the outsider, anti-corporate candidate. It is five days after the election and it is already clear that he was lying through his hairpiece.
This music video pretty much sums up my feelings.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WkZ5e94QnWk&feature=share
6:26 am. Ah; you may wanna check facts first buddy. Trump won.It's true that your gal was beat by a billionaire, and the Blue Collar vote carried him on to victory. Many in the "lower class" voted for Trump; because "they" are not "slaves" to the system, thats was created to keep "them"down.Oh, you left out the female vote and college educated; of which there were many.Stop the whinny; life's not fair, tantrum.Trump won by the system created by the Founding Fathers.The Veterans have given you a gift; they fought for freedom."Your" outlook is typical of a "spoiled American".
By the time the count is over Clinton will have beaten the Orange Baboon by 4 million votes. Try and deal with that without whining.
Does that mean the polls were actually right?
Trump won by pitting the middle class against the lower class. Exploitation of fear and anger. You have plenty of both.
Please listen properly the concerns and thoughts of people who don’t have the same privilege as you do. Don’t discard them, reflect on them first and ask more until you understand what they are talking about. This is not a “pity show”, they are not talking to you for you to have pity for them.Speak up for those you can’t speak for themselves or who just can’t get their message across because or the color of their skin, religion, gender… Yeah, that still happens. It’s like an invisible wall magically appears between people and they can’t listen, or shall I say, have empathy or see themselves in their shoes. It’s called “having a heart”, so please, make sure you have a heart.
Who lines up these speakers for the Veterans Day? Last year and this they were a broad brush anti-Islam creed. Sorry, for the story is not being well formed. Since the right question is not being asked, the right answers will not follow.
As a women I am very sad and scared that Trump won. However, I have vowed to give him the respect and support that the Republicans gave Obama for 8 years.
So do you have a plan to destroy him?
No, but the Republicans do. The GOP establishment wants Pence in the White House. Over the next few weeks Trump's treasonous relationship with Putin, along with his general criminal behavior, will suddenly flood the media. Especially Fox News. It will be spun as being very shocking stuff. Trump will then be impeached by nearly the entire Congress. Think of it as a human body purging its cancer. Don't believe me? Stay tuned.
The republicans didn't give him much if any respect.
"We all have a part to play in this drama; just play your part well. That’s all anyone can ask.In the wake of our generation’s greatest challenge —Let this be our finest hour" Cameron Chang.
6:04 am. Maturity is the word you over looked. No, it would not be the same headlines, whoever was elected. You focus on Russians; I focus on Socialism.Thank a Vet, that "we" are able to have diverse opions.
That is because you're a traitor.
6:58 am I am Vegan.
How would I know? I doubt it.
7:02am. As a woman; there's no way that I would have voted for "that" woman.
Good for you. It is always interesting to me to learn what motivates people to vote against their own best interest. So tell me, why would you vote for a woman who has spent her entire life fighting for women if you have a chance to vote for a guy who brags about sexually assaulting women. Were you hoping that he judges you as not being attractive enough and such be safe from his assaults?
But you're not a woman, you're the trump Guy.
7:17Let me tell you this: I would be a lot more comfortable having my daughter sitting with Hillary Clinton in a room than with Donald Trump.You may have a different opinion. That's what makes this country so great.
7:10 am Please don't encourge her/him, its obvious they havn't had their morning cup of Joe.
I've read these posts for several days now. While some are mean spirited, it is your right to disagree in the manner you choose. I was born and raised in California. I have voted in every election since I was of age. I can honestly say that my vote has rarely been represented as I am a moderate conservative in a heavily progressive state. I did not riot. I did not demand that the vote of the majority be changed. I waited. I waited to see what would happen. If I disagreed, I wrote to my elected officials. I debated with my friends, even strangers. I posted my opinion occasionally on blogs like this. I survived to vote another day. It is our right to dissent. What I see more of now, are groups of people who no longer want the Constitution. It is archaic they say. It has no meaning. Many come here not to assimilate but to take what we have to offer. Many think that's okay. Many feel we should be entitled to more and more benefits. I ask the question: where will this money come from? Many of you fear Trump's immigration ideas. You call him a racist. As a nation, we have unemployed citizen, we have people living in poverty. As citizens, shouldn't they be cared for first? Trump didn't serve in the army. Did Clinton? How many haven't? You don't like the speakers that vets get. Are you a vet? Are you a member? Do you have a voice in their organization? If ya don't like the speaker ya don't go. Trump is a mysoginist and purportedly said raunchy things. Is he alone in that? It seems that I have heard feminists say some outrageous things about men. Are they true? Do they get a pass? I didn't vote for Obama. But I didn't buy into all the negative press. I waited. I watched before I made a decision. Like most politicians I feel he did some good things and not so good things. If you feel Capitalism doesn't work then what doe? Socialism? Doesn't seem to have worked well in the past. It seems everyone is a liar, a crook, a racist, a womanizer or any other label someone comes up with. No one, regardless of how well intentioned, has been able to change human nature. Putin comes to mind. Trump is in his pocket. You fear being overcome by Russians. But you allow Sharia law in our cities. Again, that goes against our Constitution. So many things to think about and question. I can hardly wait to see if this gets posted and what delightful comment await.
Did you ever get a real answer to all of those letters you wrote? I mean, real like the kinds the pharmaceutical and gun lobbies would get?
What a naive argument.
If you honestly believe that 'sharia law' has overcome our cities then you are not a moderate conservative. That's paranoid extremism.
Aww how cute another "butt hurt" privileged white man. Your fragility is showing.
7:44 thanks for underscoring my argument that Trump has exploited your fear. Now, if trump threatened to deny my existing in this country because of my religion. I would riot. If he sexually assaulted me or even claimed it was permissible because of his stature I would riot. If he said I was unqualified to be a judge because my parents were immigrants I would riot. If he accused me of being a drug dealer or rapist just because I was from Mexico, I would riot. It's telling that you aren't even upset a teensy little.
7:44-Any religion that has been proven to be an enemy of this country should be vetted. Many have not been. I have no problem with that. Someone needs to care enough to do it. If anyone said you're a Catholic and I won't allow you to enter the country, I have a problem.Did Trump say he had the right to sexually assault someone? He said women make themselves available to him. And he's probably right. I would question any judge who has leanings toward what I oppose as being able to put aside his preferences. Are you saying judges are not biased? Not all Mexican's are rapists or drug dealers. But a large majority seem to be. I have spoken to several immigration officers who have told me that many illegals don't see sex with a 10 year old as rape. It is accepted in their countries. As for drugs, it seems to be the most popular job among immigrants. I wonder how they manage to gather the $5,000.00 to pay the guy who gets them across the border. If you are here illegally and the government wants to control that, that gives you the right to riot? We have people that were born and raised here living in poverty, I understand why they might riot. How much more of our taxes dollars could be used on them? I am upset by many things. That should be telling to you. I have kids to put through college, I ask no one for help. I resent that my kids aren't eligible for many perks illegals get. They have the grades. I do resent people like you who try to force your opinion on me and I am totally wrong if I disagree with you. You deny me my rights everyday. I could riot, but I don't. I lived next door to a woman that rented her garage to 10 immigrants. I wanted to riot because no one should have to live like that. There was a 10 year old girl living there who became pregnant. I reported it to the proper authorities and was told there was nothing they could do as it was cultural. Really? I wanted to riot. What? There is a law for one group and not another? This wasn't an isolated case. If there's one there are more. My rights are infringed on by people like you every day. I could riot. I don't. And should I? I am glad to wait, try to work within the system. See what I can do. So you sit back and figure out all the right things for you to riot. In doing so, I'm not sure you will bring about positive change. You are uncompromising.
Thanks for the belly laugh 7:44. Sharia law in our cities! You and your chosen leader are of like mind, except that you have not raped corporations of millions and then had them file for bankruptcy, you probably pay taxes, you probably don't stiff people who work four you, you probably don't lust after your daughter, you probably don't sexually assault women, you probably haven't formed hundreds of businesses in Russia, you probably aren't beholden to Russian oligarchs, and you probably haven't inherited a life of abject luxury. But you sure think like him, so that makes you very, very special.
It's good to know that you have info on what I've done and not done.
OK, then tells us the things I said you haven't or probably haven't done that you actually have done just like your leader.
A religion is the 'proven enemy of this country'? That is some scary pussy-grabbing talk. You are not a real American and you should be deported
9:32Just remember that California (like many other states) does not have a legal age limit for marriage of children, provided they have the consent of their parents.http://statelaws.findlaw.com/california-law/california-marriage-age-requirements-laws.htmlThis Christian-inspired "tradition" of marrying primarily underage, pregnatn girls to their adult sexual predators has just recently been banned in Virginia, but it is still in existence in California.http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/virginia-bans-child-marriage-illegal-underage-loophole_us_578407fae4b0ed2111d74228Something to think about...
It is good that we get a chance to learn about each others concerns and problems, as 6:52 has shown us. In our history, we have a chance to work together as a nation for all or do we follow history and fight each other. Lets learn from the past and choose to work together in unity to preserve what we have as a nation. I think the saying goes "UNITED WE STAND" DIVIDED WE FALL". Let us not fall for outside sources trying to divide and conquer us as a nation. Just look at all the fighting in the world, lets not be a part of that in these united states. I can't imagine the chaos that would follow if states secede from the U S.
8:01 There have been instances where judges have backed Sharia law. There is a push in the heavily Muslim neighborhoods to enforce it. 7:53A Real answers? No, form letters usually. But I complained about them to my elected officials. I keep trying. Occasionally, I get real answers. I won't give up. Don't know what you mean by real like pharmaceuticals, etc. 7:59A Why am I naive? Because I try to work within the system I believe in? Because I don't give up? You might be naive to think that pasting here has meaning. If enough people wrote to people who matter and that means anyone who sponsors a belief opposed to yours, elected officials might listen. I guess I'll remain naive!
Sharia law is a fear monger's canard. There is a constitutional separation of church and state in this country. You are just afraid of anyone who is not white and privileged like you. Same old story different year.
Look it up 8:01 and anyone who cares.https://search.yahoo.com/yhs/search?p=united+states+allow+sharia+law&ei=UTF-8&hspart=mozilla&hsimp=yhs-002
Masha Gessen is a scholar who specializes in Russia and Putin. If the idea of a scholar offends you, you probably won't be interested, but if not, this article is helpful:http://www2.nybooks.com/daily/s3/nov/10/trump-election-autocracy-rules-for-survival.htmlRegarding the "riots"? ...the implied equivalency between civil resistance and insurgency. This is an autocrat’s favorite con, the explanation for the violent suppression of peaceful protests the world over.
Young people freely expressing their opinions usually offends the old and fearful. But it is their country, too.
The first article that you cite says the following:"In the United States, there are no Islamic courts, but judges sometimes have to consider Islamic law in their decisions. For example, a judge may have to recognize the validity of an Islamic marriage contract from a Muslim country in order to grant a divorce in America."Should, in your opinion, this not be allowable, and instead the divorce denied?
7:14am. It's because this person is "privilege d" and lives in the safety of Sierra Madre, mostly white population.
9:32 You said the majority of Mexicans are rapists and drug dealers. That is pure crazy talk!! That is so not true, where is your proof? Everyone in law enforcement and any sane person will disagree. All I can hope for is that you are in the minority. I blame Trump for this kind of insane thinking.
Change the word "Mexicans" to "Jews" and you'd think you're in 1930s Germany.
Wow, so quick to pull the "white men" card. Talk about a racist.
Did you hallucinate that, or is it something written on your alt-knucklehead response flash cards?
7:50 am. Why would you think the "Trump Guy" might not be a woman? and 7:44am. Might you ever consider throwing your hat into the ring of public service? As of late, public discord?
10:20A I would be happy to oblige if only to bother you!
Quit trying to grab my pussy
As long as the Trump guy chooses to remain anonymous the Trump guy is whatever I determine him to be. And you are the same person
10:12am. Change the word to blended family and you have the Trumps.
This is true… All of his various fake blonde wives blend together
Trump treats his wives like cars. Every few years he trades them in for a new model.
How many immigrants are in jail for drugs, rape or murder?
12:56pn. We are all immigrants, unless you are 100% Native blood from the Indigenous Nations of the land named America.
Not exactly but the spirit of your argument is good
How many here know anything about Tenancingo,Mexico?How many of you now about what happens in the safe houses that are run by legal Hispanics ?How many blame American drug use as the real reason the drug cartels exist ?How many know what the citizenship requirements are in Mexico ?How many Mexicans exploit their own people?Why is it wrong to make Mexico and the Mexican people accountable for the mistreatment of their citizens?Why did Geronimo dislike Mexicans and why is there still a holdover of this dislike among Native Americans on this side of the border?Any answers ?I await enlightenment.
You are oddly obsessed.
Yes, it is clear you are unenlightened. If only you hadn't waited until after the election.
We don't want drug rehabs,we don't want Mc Mansions,we don't want child molesters,and God forbid driving while Black in this hypocritical hamlet in the foothills.Immigrants are building McMansions don't they have rights to adhere to their cultural ideals ?I say the government should buy the retreat and make housing for all our new refugee friends .Better yet , I'll send out a plea to George Soros so he buy the property and we can all turn out to build homes for our refugee friends ... NIMBY Madre
I'd buy you a ticket to Italy, so you might understand Franscians; but you'd probably go looking for someone to pinch your butt.The government should buy a Religious Institution? Maybe Georgie Soros would receive athe pardon for his many sins.
Dear Trumptard tadpoles - your man just plucked Reince Preibus, the head insider is the RNC to be his chief of staff. So much for your smokedream of getting an outsider in the whitehouse. You got played so bad. His sins are your sins
