Tensions rise at CNN as the network aims for Trump
Like any credible news outlet, CNN is expected to scrutinize Trump and his incoming administration. But some inside the network have pointed to recent examples of what they considered to be an excessively hostile stance toward the Republican and his supporters.
I’m dreaming of a white (supremacist) Christmas
I was afraid of this. The first sniff of what smells like white supremacy in or around the White House came with the appointment of Stephen Bannon as special advisor to President-elect Trump. (Still can’t get used to saying that … President Trump).
Bannon’s documented history of bigotry should be a concern to us all regarding his elevated and strategic new position within the White House and in the new Trump administration.
Every word a lie.
Central Americans surge north, hoping to reach U.S. before Trump inauguration
Central American countries warned on Thursday that large numbers of migrants have fled their poor, violent homes since Donald Trump’s surprise election win, hoping to reach the United States before he takes office next year.
Trump won the Nov. 8 vote by taking a hard line on immigration, threatening to deport millions of people living illegally in the United States and to erect a wall along the Mexican border.
Trump’s tough campaign rhetoric sent tremors through the slums of Central America and the close-knit migrant communities in U.S. cities, with many choosing to fast-forward their plans and migrate north before Trump takes office on Jan. 20.
The illegal immigration invasion is now Trump’s fault.
Childish? NY Times Reporters Compare Trump’s Interview Demeanor to ‘An Unhappy Kid’
The New York Times not only interviewed Donald Trump on Tuesday, they came out of the interview and made a 45-minute podcast about it. In that, reporters Maggie Haberman and Michael Barbaro demonstrated their liberal distance from the president-elect, comparing his demeanor at the start of the interview to an “unhappy kid.” Haberman also suggested he seemed like a child in dismissing two Republican Senators who lost after walking away from supporting him for president.
Trump inspires scramble on spying powers
Tech and civil liberties advocates are imploring the Obama administration to rein in the government’s massive surveillance apparatus before President-elect Donald Trump takes office, fearful he will carry out his campaign promises to register Muslims, spy on mosques and punish companies that offer Americans unbreakable encryption.
It was okay when Obama did it.
Will there be recounts in the US election? Could Jill Stein BLOCK President Trump?
Ms Stein has said that there is “compelling evidence of voting anomalies”, and rallied: “We deserve elections we can trust.”
The Green Party candidate has said she does not expect to find that she has won any of the states in question.
Doctors see a new condition among immigrant children: fear of Trump
Since the 8 November election, pediatricians and clinics serving undocumented immigrants and other low-income patients have reported a spike in anxiety and panic attacks, particularly among children who worry that they or their parents might now face deportation.
One little boy in North Carolina has been suffering crippling stomach aches in class because he’s afraid he might return home to find his parents gone. In California, many families are reporting that their children are leaving school in tears because their classmates have told them they are going to be thrown out of the country.
The Electoral College has to go — here’s how we do it
The United States can’t pretend to be a democracy. First-place candidates have lost two presidential elections in the last 16 years: Al Gore lost despite beating George W. Bush by 544,000 votes in 2000, and Hillary Clinton was defeated even though she leads Donald Trump by more than 1.69 million votes this year. Most Americans realize that electoral votes have got to go.
The United States is a Constitutional Republic, idiot.
Report: Russian propaganda efforts propelled fake election news
It seems the liberal media simply can’t accept the fact that voters rejected Democrat Hillary Clinton. In a Thanksgiving Day hit piece that can only be described as “fake news” designed to push liberal propaganda, the Washington Post attempted to tie conservative and right-leaning sites to Russian propaganda and intelligence machinery.
INSANITY: Election Recount Scam Twists In A Delusional New Direction…
This is just insane. We passed stupid long ago. Commie Jill Stein is raising money for the Green Party and an army of attorneys to demand vote recounts in Wisconsin, Pennsylvania and Michigan. Even Leftists admit this will never work and that the election will stand. And should the apocalypse decide to arrive after all and this was bounced to the House of Representatives, Trump would still become President. But here we go. Stein originally wanted to raise $2.5 million. She has blown right past that and has now raised over $3,875,502. One wonders if there is money left over after this fruitless gesture, who it will go to.
Electoral college must not elect Donald Trump unless he sells his business, say Obama and Bush’s ethics lawyers
The former ethics lawyers for president Barack Obama and George W Bush have asked the electoral college to not appoint Donald Trump as the next president due to his potential conflicts of interest.
No mention of the Clinton Foundation though.
Anti-Trump presidential elector suing to unbind from state’s election result
A lawyer for Michael Baca, a Colorado elector, told Politico that his client is preparing a lawsuit challenging state laws that force electors to vote for their party’s nominee.
There are currently 29 states with laws on the books that bind electors to the election result in their respective states, but those laws have never been enforced.
Trump’s media feud enters new era
White House reporters are worried about access to Trump, who didn’t allow reporters on his campaign plane and ditched media staking out Trump Tower last week to have dinner with family at New York’s 21 Club.
The president-elect’s frequent threats to the press have added to a sense that the rules for covering this White House might be different.
Amanpour Calls For Media Jihad Against Trump
“I never thought in a million years that I would be standing up here after all the times I participated in this ceremony, appealing really, for the freedom and the safety of American journalists at home… Those bits from Donald Trump that were in that video basically show us and remind us of the peril that we face…
As you’ve seen tonight, that is how it goes with authoritarians around the world, like Sisi, like Erdogan, like Putin, like the Ayatollahs, like Duterte in the Philippines, and all of those people…. First, the media is accused of inciting, then sympathizing, then associating, and then suddenly they find themselves accused of being full-fledged terrorists and subversives, and then they end up in handcuffs, in cages, in kangaroo courts, in prisons, and then who knows what?”
