• We’re Still Here, 1/20/17, Consumed Most of All by Our Fears

    January 20, 2017

    Tags: ,
    Posted in: Democracy, Post-Constitution America, Trump



    One of my favorite quotes includes the lines “I awoke this morning to find that it was not judgment day – only morning. Morning: excellent and fair.” I think that sums up a part of my thinking, but certainly not all.


    A nuclear reckoning, war with China, or anything else quite so violently apocalyptic is imminent, or even underway, as far too many of us think. I live in one of those bubbles, the sum of which make up America now. Many of the people I talk to, in person and here online, seem to believe, truly believe, the world is coming to something of an end. These are by and large educated, once-rational people, some of whom have been voices of reason in the past. They are not that way now.

    We are however falling, some important threads of our nation being teased apart, and our best days are behind us. But this did not start on November 8, 2016, or January 20, 2017, thoough historians will note those dates as significant milestones (same as September 11, 2001.) But not because of Donald Trump. Because his name just happened to be attached to what has been growing inside us since the end of WWII.

    The Russians did not elect Trump. They may or may not have tried to get involved in the election, but we did this to ourselves. As the historian you have probably not read but should read Morris Berman predicted years ago, we are eating each other.


    We are consumed most of all by our fears. Fear of what the Soviets, and maybe the Chinese, would do after WWII. We created a nuclear arsenal measured in how many multiples of times it could destroy the world. We dragged our country through disasters like Vietnam, that murdered so many and cracked apart our nation. Our fear of race, our war on drugs, and then of course our fear of a world beyond our control after 9/11. Another quote that seems to fit is “The leader of genius must have the ability to make different opponents appear as if they belonged to one category.”

    The fears were encouraged at every opportunity by those who profited from them, either by rawly making money, or by acquiring power and control, or in most cases, both. We are unconcerned — it’s normal — that politicians routinely leave office wealthy despite modest salaries. We have so much, and share so little. We enthusiastically abandoned so many of the good things about America, such as our Bill of Rights. America’s pre-WWII Constitutional Era was grossly imperfect. Yet for its obvious failings, there was a sense of the possibility of progress; halting, awkward, unfinished, but, well, for lack of a better word and to use a word that has become a symbol of modern irony, hope.

    Of course none of that was close to perfect, but it was good and it is gone in some arenas and going away in most of the rest. We’ll still be allowed to rant on Twitter, a modern day bread and circus, but the real stuff of standing up and speaking back to government will happen only with handfuls of whistleblowers who will sacrifice their lives and freedom to say what they need to say.


    I thought we had a chance at change in 2008 but instead was proven to be a dupe. I thought he might turn it all around, in those first weeks he could have asked the rivers to flow backwards and they just might have. He could have grounded the drones, torn up the Patriot Act, held truth commissions to bring into the light our tortures, re-emancipated America in ways not unlike Lincoln did in the 1860s. Slam shut the gates of Guantanamo, close the secret prisons that even today still ooze pus in Afghanistan, stop the militarization of Africa, bring the troops home, all of it, just have done it. What a change, what a path forward, what a rebirth for an America who had lost her way so perilously. One man could have made a difference and when he did not even try, he helped solidify in America a sense of cynicism and powerlessness that empowers evil people further. If there was no Obama there would be no Trump.

    A new generation, and me again, thought there was another chance with Bernie Sanders. We were stupid. He was a distraction, and showed his true colors throwing away everything he said previously to support a candidate of the same old old school we’ve been voting for since WWII.

    Trump is at best/worst a symbol of all this. How powerful people play us against each other and exploit our differences. How fear (currently fear of Trump filtered through fear of Putin) can be used to manipulate us. How the ideas of democracy can be so easily tossed aside so that our most progressive thinkers are convinced elections are illegitimate, and anything from silly name calling to demands for something akin to a coup are justified when the enemy is as perceived evil as Trump. Echoing the famous lines from Vietnam, it is in their minds necessary to destroy democracy in order to save it.


    I’ve written here before open letters to my daughters, talking about the world they are maturing into. This is in that spirit. Somebody, maybe them, is one day going to stop and wonder how they got to where they ended up, an oligarchy that profits from mouthing the nice words of our Founders while ignoring them. Maybe they will find this essay, dated for convenience only, January 20, 2017.

      And Governor Perry too.

      During the hearing, Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn.) quoted Perry in 2014, when he declared: “I don’t believe we have the settled science by any sense of the imagination. Calling CO2 a pollutant is doing a disserve to the country and a disservice to the world.”

      “Now,” Franken continued, “I see in your testimony that your views have been evolving on this and you note that man is responsible for some climate change. How much climate change do you think that science shows is due to human activity? ”

      Perry interjected: “It is far from me to be sitting before you and claiming to be a climate scientist. I will not do that.”

      To which Franken retorted, “I don’t think you’re ever going to be a climate scientist, but you are going to be head of the Department of Energy.”

      “The only thing we have to fear is …what was the question?” —-Governor Perry

      “Fear, that’s the other guy’s problem”.- Trading Places.

      If you can keep your head when all about you
      Are losing theirs,
      Maybe you haven’t heard the news.

      If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
      Or being lied about, don’t deal in lies,
      Or being hated, don’t give way to hating,
      And yet don’t look too good, nor talk too wise:

      If you can meet with Trump and Disaster
      And treat those two impostors just the same;

      If you can fill the unforgiving minute
      With sixty seconds’ worth of distance run –
      Yours is the Earth and everything that’s in it,
      And – which is more – you’ll be a Man my son!

      So you better start running.

      It is good Trump- an out plutocrat will be POTUS. The curtain of illusion and delusion has been yanked open. America has always been and still is a closeted plutocracy. Now with the facts exposed we can get to work. Nothing happens in therapy until the patient admits his flaws and confronts his delusions.

      Rich….

      First…. Drop the race card. It does Not work. There’s enough crap with out adding another reason for things to get out of control.

      Second…..

      With as much hate, bullshit reasons..etc…. That have been thrown up ….aka…”politics as usual “.

      Near as I can tell…. People voted Trump….. Because they did Not want more of “no hope and no change “.

      Which is exactly what the People would have got with Hillary.

      I know…. In 3 hours… 13 minutes….we…. As a nation…. Will start to really find out if thus great experiment called “democracy”…. Can be salvaged and saved.

      Below…. Is a article that I hope you will read….. It should line out the stakes in this poker game.

      Look at the “perspectives ” of the “protesters”…. As they scream about police facing them….. As the “protesters” attack people…..

      that is called…. “justifying”

      “‘DEPLORABALL’ DIVIDE Trump supporters met by protesters in chaotic scene
      Jan 20, 2017 8:44 AM EST

      Trump supporters arriving for the Deploraball inauguration celebration in Washington on Thursday night were greeted by screaming profanities and threats as they entered the National Press Club Building.

      Some of the hundreds of protesters sprayed Mace, while others were peaceful as law enforcement officers lined the streets to monitor the chaotic scene. At least one passerby reported bottles were being thrown as he showed off a gash in his head.

      The Deploraball, organized by the pro-Trump organization MAGA3X, saw more than 1,000 invited guests celebrate on the eve of the President-elects swearing in.

      The main goal of the evening, according to organizers, was to celebrate.

      Deploraball is a coming out party for a new type of Republican, Jeff Giesea told FoxNews.com. People are threatening us, and its uncalled for.

      The event had earlier been reported to be the target of threats from anti-Trump groups, but the FBI and D.C. law enforcement officials told Foxnews.com that they did not know of any credible threats surrounding any inauguration events.

      Just look at which way their guns are facing! one protester told Foxnews.com. about the police presence US! Not them.

      Were not attacking anyone!, another protester said.

      That was not the case for James Allsup, 21, of Seattle, whose head was gushing blood as he sat surrounded by police officers on the side of the road.

      I was wearing my Make America Great Again hat, and a white male came up behind me and swung at me with a flagpole I kind of blacked out for a minute, Allsup told FoxNews.com. Before I knew it, my head was gushing blood theres blood on my Trump hat.

      Allsup told FoxNews.com that he and a friend were simply grabbing drinks in the neighborhood and walked through the street where protesters were gathered.

      Im all for disagreeing, I debate people all the time and I want to engage in these discussions, but theyre throwing bottles, Allsup told Foxnews.com. I would be livid if people who supported Trump were doing this to Hillary supporters.

      Inside the National Press Club, the deplorables at the Deploraball continued to celebrate.

      This ball is for the people, and by the people, Giesea said. This is not some stuffy Washington ball.

      But when asked about the protesters, one woman, dressed in a sparkly sash reading Mrs. Deplorable, laughed.

      So, lets take care of those little deplorables outside those protesters, She told FoxNews.com. They really just need to go and get a job. ”

      “Girl Scouts push back against attacks over Trump inauguration participation

      Jan 19, 2017

      Some 75 Girl Scouts said they wanted to participate in the organizations tradition of being at the presidential inauguration.

      But unlike any other time, they are coming under fire.

      On social media and in essays published online, many women are denouncing the Girl Scouts of the USA for its plans to continue its tradition and take part in the presidential inauguration of Donald Trump on Friday.

      The critics say that an organization like the Girl Scouts, which seeks to empower young females, should boycott Trumps inauguration because of the scandals surrounding alleged sexual harassment by the president-elect years ago as well as an audio recording of him using salacious language to refer to women.

      Some also cited Vice President-elect Mike Pences anti-abortion views as a reason that the Girl Scouts should skip the ceremonies.

      But the Girl Scouts organization, which notes that it is non-political, says it will not make an exception to a tradition it has observed for decades, regardless of which party and which candidate wins the presidential election.

      In a statement sent to FoxNews.com, the organization stressed that it is accommodating the desire of 75 girls from the Girl Scouts of Nation’s Capital Council. The girls were among hundreds responding to a message posted in August on the council’s website, well before the election. The council conducted surveys and selected the finalists. 

      Being truly non-partisan means that we keep our focus on the girls. It means that we go where they lead, the statement said. It means we can no more turn our back on 75 girls who have chosen to participate in the peaceful transition of power any more than we can on the thousands of girls participating in Womens Marches the next day.

      The fact is, people often use Girl Scouts as an outlet to try to make a political statement, it continued.

       We are girl-led and girl-driven, and our job, our mission, is to empower them to make their own choices, and express their own views.

      Some of the critics have been former Girl Scouts, such as Jean Hannah Edelstein, who made her objection known in an essay in The Guardian.

      The news that the Girl Scouts are sending a contingent to participate in Donald Trumps inauguration filled me with real rage, Edelstein wrote. Yes, its a tradition: theyve marched at inauguration for decades. But does tradition justify collaboration with an administration that promises to oppress the young women its supposed to serve?

      Many published reports noted that never before has the organizations participation in the presidential election created such an outcry, even when other presidents, such as Bill Clinton, were trailed by scandals involving the treatment of women.

      Our legacy is one of uniting, not dividing, and our mission is fundamentally about bringing girls of all backgrounds together to discover their talents, the organization said, and unlock their leadership potential, so that they can lead all of us to the promise of a better day. ”

      Ok…. I understand President Donald J Trump.

      Now…. Let’s see if he can pull it off.

      ……….

      Chief Justice Roberts, President Carter, President Clinton, President Bush, President Obama, fellow Americans, and people of the world: thank you.

      We, the citizens of America, are now joined in a great national effort to rebuild our country and to restore its promise for all of our people.

      Together, we will determine the course of America and the world for years to come.

      We will face challenges. We will confront hardships. But we will get the job done.

      Every four years, we gather on these steps to carry out the orderly and peaceful transfer of power, and we are grateful to President Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama for their gracious aid throughout this transition. They have been magnificent.

      Today’s ceremony, however, has very special meaning. Because today we are not merely transferring power from one Administration to another, or from one party to another – but we are transferring power from Washington, D.C. and giving it back to you, the American People.

      For too long, a small group in our nation’s Capital has reaped the rewards of government while the people have borne the cost.

      Washington flourished – but the people did not share in its wealth.

      Politicians prospered – but the jobs left, and the factories closed.

      The establishment protected itself, but not the citizens of our country.

      Their victories have not been your victories; their triumphs have not been your triumphs; and while they celebrated in our nation’s Capital, there was little to celebrate for struggling families all across our land.

      That all changes – starting right here, and right now, because this moment is your moment: it belongs to you.

      It belongs to everyone gathered here today and everyone watching all across America. 

      This is your day. This is your celebration.

      And this, the United States of America, is your country.

      What truly matters is not which party controls our government, but whether our government is controlled by the people.

      January 20th 2017, will be remembered as the day the people became the rulers of this nation again. 

      The forgotten men and women of our country will be forgotten no longer.

      Everyone is listening to you now.

      You came by the tens of millions to become part of a historic movement the likes of which the world has never seen before.

      At the center of this movement is a crucial conviction: that a nation exists to serve its citizens.

      Americans want great schools for their children, safe neighborhoods for their families, and good jobs for themselves.

      These are the just and reasonable demands of a righteous public.

      But for too many of our citizens, a different reality exists: Mothers and children trapped in poverty in our inner cities; rusted-out factories scattered like tombstones across the landscape of our nation; an education system, flush with cash, but which leaves our young and beautiful students deprived of knowledge; and the crime and gangs and drugs that have stolen too many lives and robbed our country of so much unrealized potential.

      This American carnage stops right here and stops right now.

      We are one nation – and their pain is our pain.  Their dreams are our dreams; and their success will be our success.  We share one heart, one home, and one glorious destiny.

      The oath of office I take today is an oath of allegiance to all Americans.

      For many decades, we’ve enriched foreign industry at the expense of American industry;

      Subsidized the armies of other countries while allowing for the very sad depletion of our military;

      We’ve defended other nation’s borders while refusing to defend our own;

      And spent trillions of dollars overseas while America’s infrastructure has fallen into disrepair and decay.

      We’ve made other countries rich while the wealth, strength, and confidence of our country has disappeared over the horizon.

      One by one, the factories shuttered and left our shores, with not even a thought about the millions upon millions of American workers left behind.

      The wealth of our middle class has been ripped from their homes and then redistributed across the entire world.

      But that is the past. And now we are looking only to the future.

      We assembled here today are issuing a new decree to be heard in every city, in every foreign capital, and in every hall of power.

      From this day forward, a new vision will govern our land.

      From this moment on, it’s going to be America First.

      Every decision on trade, on taxes, on immigration, on foreign affairs, will be made to benefit American workers and American families.

      We must protect our borders from the ravages of other countries making our products, stealing our companies, and destroying our jobs.  Protection will lead to great prosperity and strength.

      I will fight for you with every breath in my body – and I will never, ever let you down.

      America will start winning again, winning like never before.

      We will bring back our jobs. We will bring back our borders.  We will bring back our wealth.  And we will bring back our dreams.

      We will build new roads, and highways, and bridges, and airports, and tunnels, and railways all across our wonderful nation.

      We will get our people off of welfare and back to work – rebuilding our country with American hands and American labor.

      We will follow two simple rules: Buy American and Hire American.

      We will seek friendship and goodwill with the nations of the world – but we do so with the understanding that it is the right of all nations to put their own interests first.

      We do not seek to impose our way of life on anyone, but rather to let it shine as an example for everyone to follow.

      We will reinforce old alliances and form new ones – and unite the civilized world against Radical Islamic Terrorism, which we will eradicate completely from the face of the Earth.

      At the bedrock of our politics will be a total allegiance to the United States of America, and through our loyalty to our country, we will rediscover our loyalty to each other.

      When you open your heart to patriotism, there is no room for prejudice.

      The Bible tells us, “how good and pleasant it is when God’s people live together in unity.”

      We must speak our minds openly, debate our disagreements honestly, but always pursue solidarity.

      When America is united, America is totally unstoppable.

      There should be no fear – we are protected, and we will always be protected.

      We will be protected by the great men and women of our military and law enforcement and, most importantly, we are protected by God.

      Finally, we must think big and dream even bigger.

      In America, we understand that a nation is only living as long as it is striving.

      We will no longer accept politicians who are all talk and no action – constantly complaining but never doing anything about it.

      The time for empty talk is over.

      Now arrives the hour of action.

      Do not let anyone tell you it cannot be done.  No challenge can match the heart and fight and spirit of America.

      We will not fail. Our country will thrive and prosper again.

      We stand at the birth of a new millennium, ready to unlock the mysteries of space, to free the Earth from the miseries of disease, and to harness the energies, industries and technologies of tomorrow.

      A new national pride will stir our souls, lift our sights, and heal our divisions.

      It is time to remember that old wisdom our soldiers will never forget: that whether we are black or brown or white, we all bleed the same red blood of patriots, we all enjoy the same glorious freedoms, and we all salute the same great American Flag.

      And whether a child is born in the urban sprawl of Detroit or the windswept plains of Nebraska, they look up at the same night sky, they fill their heart with the same dreams, and they are infused with the breath of life by the same almighty Creator.

      So to all Americans, in every city near and far, small and large, from mountain to mountain, and from ocean to ocean, hear these words:

      Mitch- were we separated at birth? The plutocrats hate Trump who is an out plutocrat! Why? Because for some reason he wants to lower the drawbridge of the castle to worthy proles treading in the moat. Obama nailed it shut and Hillary if she had won would have taken it out and cemented the entrance.
      Trump may have been born sliding into home plate after his father hit a ball which made the catcher leave the plate but I sense he cares about the less fortunate. You and I want to be right because thinking positively sometimes is the best recourse.

      Thank you. A very nice thing to say…. And… It is possible….as I know virtually nothing of my personal history.

      But…. Yes…. You get it…. And…. You get me.

      Love your analogy…. Hillary would have done exactly that.

      I want it to be right…. And Trump to be successful….

      For the very simple reason…..that the great experience… Called the ‘United States of America ‘ ….

      Can not be allowed to disappear into some ancient history book…. That is shelved in some dusty basement…. That is only referenced….like some obscure plant that existed 50,000,000,000,000 years ago.

      He’s busy….

      ENACTING AGENDA Trump administration takes aim at climate change
      Jan 20, 2017 2:46 PM EST

      While new President Donald Trump was laying out a short version of his agenda in an inaugural speech, his communications team was busy rewriting the White House website with a slew of new objectives including scrapping environmental regulations it claims kill jobs.

      Among the commitments was immediate elimination of the Climate Action Plan and the Waters of the U.S. rule, two administrative regulations Trumps predecessor, President Obama, considered environmental safeguards. Team Trump deemed them harmful and unnecessary policies that hurt the economy and said so on the official Whitehouse.gov website.

      Lifting these restrictions will greatly help American workers, increasing wages by more than $30 billion over the next 7 years, the website now states.

      Trump made clear his administration will seek energy independence for the U.S. by giving a shot in the arm to the oil and gas industries, a platform plank he touted during his successful campaign against Democrat Hillary Clinton.

      We must take advantage of the estimated $50 trillion in untapped shale, oil, and natural gas reserves, especially those on federal lands that the American people own, the freshly updated site now states. We will use the revenues from energy production to rebuild our roads, schools, bridges and public infrastructure.

      The rapid reversal of prior policy drew a sharp rebuke from environmentalists.

      “Minutes after he was sworn in, any illusion that Trump would act in the best interests of families in this country as President were wiped away by a statement of priorities that constitute an historic mistake on one of the key crises facing our planet and an assault on public health, Sierra Club Executive Director Michael Brune said in a statement. What Trump has released is hardly a plan – its a polluter wishlist that will make our air and water dirtier, our climate and international relations more unstable, and our kids sicker. This is a shameful and dark start to Trumps Presidency, and a slap in the face to any American who thought Trump might pursue the national interest.

      Elsewhere on the official sites Issues section, the new administration spelled out other top priorities, wasting no time in sending a message it plans to aggressively implement the new agenda.

      On defense, the site vows to rebuild the military to give America firmer footing in pursuing peace through strength. On trade, the Trump administration intends to withdraw from the Trans-Pacific Partnership and renegotiate the North American Free Trade Agreement. The site proposes a moratorium on new federal regulations and states that Trump will order the heads of federal agencies and departments to identify job-killing regulations that should be repealed. On crime, the new policies include plans to deport illegal immigrants with violent criminal records and to safeguard Second Amendment rights, which Trump believes allow Americans to ensure their own safety.

      Much of the updated information simply makes official Trumps campaign promises, but the speed with which they were posted on the site could send a signal to critics and supporters alike that Trump intends to follow through on his agenda.

      And…. So…. …”America First “…..

      Is now… Militant and dark……

      BIAS ALERT Liberal media call inaugural address ‘militant’
      Jan 20, 2017 3:09 PM EST

      Immediately following President Donald Trump’s inaugural address, MSNBC and ABC pundits and hosts slammed the newly-sworn in President’s speech for it’s “militant” and “dark” anti-Semitic overtones.

      MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow emotionally proclaimed Trump’s “America’s First” slogan has “very dark echoes in American history.”

      “There was an America First Committee that formed in this country, hundreds of thousands of people in this country, some of the richest businessmen in the country who were part of it, they were formed to keep us out of World War II. They were infiltrated by the Nazis, many of them are anti-Semitic, part of why they weren’t alarmed by Hitler’s rise in Germany,” Maddow said.

      Over on ABC, journalist Terry Moran echoed Maddow’s comments saying Trump’s speech reminded him of the 1930s.

      “It carries with it overtones from the 1930s when an anti-Semitic movement saying, ‘We don’t want to get involved in Europe’s war. It’s the Jews fault in Germany!'”

      Reps for ABC and MSNBC did not immediately return requests for comment.

      Rich,,,,

      Even the BBC can see…

      “. Early reports were that Mr Trump would offer a non-ideological appeal for national unity ”

      Why can’t you?????

      The big experiment – Anthony Zurcher, BBC News, Washington
      If Donald Trump’s speech at the Republican National Convention was billed as “midnight in America” – a pessimistic view of the current conditions in the US – then his message on inauguration day was that it’s always darkest before the dawn.
      In an address that was tonally consistent with candidate Trump’s campaign rhetoric, the president railed against a Washington elite that flourished while the American people suffered.
      Early reports were that Mr Trump would offer a non-ideological appeal for national unity – and there were motions in that direction at times toward the end of his speech. This address, however, was very much aimed at his supporters – uniting the people with pitchforks against an out-of-touch establishment.
      American voters – at least ones in enough states to form an Electoral College majority – have taken a chance on Mr Trump. His presidency will be a remarkable experiment for American democracy, as it’s clear after this speech that Mr Trump intends to govern as he campaigned.
      The new president has set the stage. He has four years to make his supporters proud and prove all the doubters wrong.

      Trump thinks Snowden is a terrible threat:

      “I think he’s a terrible traitor, and you know what we used to do in the good old days when we were a strong country — you know what we used to do to traitors, right?”

      But in 2013, he suggested there was one way he could get back into the mogul’s good graces.

      “Snowden is a spy who should be executed—but if … he could reveal Obama’s records, I might become a major fan,” Trump wrote in October 2013, in a tweet that also made reference to Obamacare.

      The little-noticed tweet adds context to Trump’s latest controversy: a suggestion Wednesday that Russia should help expose his Democratic rival Hillary Clinton’s missing emails. “I will tell you this, Russia: If you’re listening, I hope you’re able to find the 30,000 emails that are missing,” the GOP presidential nominee said at a news conference in Florida. “I think you will probably be rewarded mightily by our press.”

      Trump also tweeted in 2014 that he hoped hackers would dig up President Barack Obama’s college records to check his “place of birth.”

      “Attention all hackers: You are hacking everything else so please hack Obama’s college records (destroyed?) and check ‘place of birth,'” he tweeted at the time.

      Yeah, Donald, we know what we do to traitors.

      Or…….

      Are you one of these people???

      Are you putting a chain around your own neck?…. Burning?…rioting????….

      Trump won…. Get over it…..

      Now help be part of the solution.

      ……..

      Violent and destructive Inauguration Day protests escalated Friday afternoon ahead of the ceremonial parade, as demonstrators smashed window fronts and clashed with police — who used pepper spray and tear gas to try and control the crowd.

      Authorities said roughly 90 people have been arrested so far.

      In the downtown Washington area, blocks north of the Pennsylvania Avenue parade route, black-clad protesters hurled rocks at police in riot guard who used pepper spray and explosives, known as flash bangs, in response.

      At least three officers from the Metropolitan Police Department, the District of Columbias agency, suffered non-life-threatening injuries related to demonstrators smashing several storefronts shortly after noon — damaging a Bank of America, Starbucks and McDonald’s about four blocks east of the White House.

      A car in the area also was reportedly set on fire.

      MPD Chief Peter Newsham said the rioters caused significant damage to the businesses and that a bystander also was injured.

      He also said that he is so far pleased with MPD’s response to the incidents and that the department is prepared for anything else.

      Protesters started in the pre-dawn hours holding rallies and blocking entrances to security checkpoints.

      Members of Black Lives Matter forced the Secret Service to close one checkpoint after hours of sitting in front of the gates and chaining themselves to fences to keep visitors from getting to the parade and other official inauguration events.

      A Kansas couple told FoxNews.com they were attacked at the checkpoint by demonstrators.

      Celeste Sollars, who said she and her husband came to town from Kansas to see the inauguration, said they were spit on and her husband was put in a chokehold by protesters.

      “The cops wouldn’t do anything, she said, crying. This is not how it was supposed to be — assault is not a First Amendment right.

      Sollars said she was attacked — as demonstrators followed through on threats to disrupt President-elect Donald Trumps inaugural ceremonies.

      We are here to let people know this presidency is not legit. It goes against hundreds of years of democracy — black lives matter, BLM DCs Tracye Redd told FoxNews.com.

      The efforts were part of an operation apparently under the umbrella of DisruptJ20, which vowed to blockade and shut down security checkpoints.

      The incidents come as Trump protesters and supporters alike descend on downtown Washington for the inauguration.

      Im here to join Bikers for Trump, said Bill McCann, who rode his motorcycle to the nations capital from Fort Worth, Texas. Ever since Mr. Trump announced his candidacy, Ive supported him 100 percent.

      McCann spoke under the light of the Capitol Rotunda as protesters with the anti-war group Jewish Voice for Peace rallied just blocks away, amid a heavy police presence.

      Were here to say that whoever is president, No more war, said Naomi Dann, of Brooklyn. The incoming president hasnt said whether hes a pacifist, but Im pretty sure hes not.

      Dann said her concerns and those of other group members include targeting Muslims and increased surveillance.

      A lot of people are angry, she said.

      An estimated 800,000 people are expected in Washington for Inauguration Day, including tens of thousands of protesters.

      On Thursday night, Trump supporters attending the Deploraball at the National Press Club Building, just blocks from the White House, were met by hundreds of protesters. Some sprayed Mace, and a passerby with a gash on his head said he was struck by a bottle that was thrown.

      Teen protects school bus from knife-wielding 10-year-old

      Jan 20, 2017
      Johnson County Deputies took a 10-year-old boy into custody on Thursday after they say he pulled out a knife on a school bus.

      A 16-year-old Rio Vista High School student found herself confronting the danger directly to protect others on that bus.

      Alexis Landry may only be 16 years old but is wise beyond her years. She found herself playing the role of protector and used her body to shield her classmates from a boy with a knife.

      He made a hand gesture towards someone with the knife in his hand, she recalled. And he was putting it up to a little boys throat.

      The superintendent says there were about 20 kids on board the bus. Landry was the oldest. The youngest passenger was in Pre-K.

      They were all in complete panic, she said. Some of them were crying and screaming they wanted to go home.

      The bus driver pulled over near a bridge on County Road 1109 to call 911. Three of the older kids jumped out the rear emergency exit, and the boy with the knife followed. According to Landry, the boy suddenly reappeared from the front door.

      When I turned around, he put his right arm across my chest, Landry said. And with his left hand, he put his knife to my throat.

      Landry says her only concern was for the other kids. She told the other students she wouldnt let the boy hurt them.

      The White House website has removed the page devoted to climate change action and posted newly sworn-in President Donald Trump’s pledge to undo environmental regulations and “revive America’s coal industry.”

      For all you idiots out there who say give Trump a chance, here is your chance…in hell:

      The 361-word policy outline on the new page, titled “America First Energy Plan,” makes no reference to global warming or climate change, except to note Trump’s commitment to “eliminating harmful and unnecessary policies such as the Climate Action Plan and the Waters of the U.S. rule.”

      The Climate Action Plan, which the Obama administration launched in 2013, set forth a strategy for slashing greenhouse gas emissions from power plants. The utility sector makes up the largest portion of the country’s carbon footprint, producing 30 percent of emissions, according to 2014 data from the Environmental Protection Agency. That’s because coal, by far the dirtiest-burning fossil fuel, once served as the country’s primary source of electricity.

      ‘DID THAT JUST HAPPEN?’ Struggling single father gets surprise of a lifetime
      Jan 21, 2017 2:20 AM EST

      A FedEx courier from rural Illinois attending Donald Trumps inauguration in a donated suit broke down in tears Thursday night when offered a $10,000 check by the commander-in-chief.

      Did that just happen? Shane Bouvet, 24, of Stonington, asked after meeting Trump backstage at the pre-inauguration concert at the Lincoln Memorial, The Washington Post reported.

      Trump read about Bouvet, a struggling single father, in the Post Wednesday and told aides he wanted to meet the man.

      The paper reported that Bouvet was invited to attend an inaugural ball as thanks for working on Trumps campaign in Illinois as a volunteer.

      The invite required a suit and a nice pair of shoes, but Bouvet wasnt sure he could afford that, according to the paper. A friend bought him the suit and got a shoe seller to donate the shoes.

      During the meeting with Trump, Bouvet called his father.

      You have a good boy, Trump told Don Bouvet, according to the paper.

      At the end Trump told an aide, Send him a check for $10,000.

      Bouvet told WAND-TVin Decatur, Ill., that Trump told him he “would never have to worry again.”

      The station reported Friday that Bouvelt said he felt like he was dreaming.

      A photo on Trumps Instagram account shows the president-elect with Bouvet.

      Great to meet one of my earliest and most dedicated supporters! Trump wrote. I am deeply humbled by the faith that millions of Americans have placed in me and our movement — and to those who did not support me, I ask for the chance to be your President too as we make America great again together.

      Little dick Don goes to the CIA today. Wonder what he will tell them. How about the truth?

      He has accused it of engaging in tactics reminiscent of Nazi Germany in spreading false intell about little dicks Putin love affair.

      He accused it of selling US slamdunk lies about Iraqi WMDs that have killed thousands of US soldiers and made US the laughingstock of the world.

      But Little dick Don has to be careful not to hurt the sagging morale at the CIA because the lying media says it could harm U.S. security.

      Well, if he wants to make a break with the CIAs past, tell them the truth. It will set them ALL free.

      We don’t have to waterboard little dick Don to find out if he is sucking up to RasPutin.

      “Let’s fly him over. We’ll dump him right in the middle. Throw him out of the plane. Should we give him a parachute or not?” Trump asked a crowd at a Dec. 5, 2015, rally in Spencer, Iowa. “I say no. Don’t give him a parachute. Why would we want to waste a parachute?”

      Bergdahl’s lawyers say that in addition to presuming their client’s guilt, Trump spread misinformation about as many as a half a dozen American soldiers being killed searching for him. Pentagon officials have said they could not find evidence to back up such claims.

      Dude, when are you finally going to understand?

      Obama is a war criminal. Bush was a war criminal. Clinton was a war criminal. Every president in history was a war criminal. Comprende?

      Get this into your head. LEGAL IMPERIALISM is the means by which they escape accountability. Research what it REALLY MEANS. In terms of today.. Trump already knows. This is exactly why he will exploit the current powers of the presidency. What the real question is. is WHO are those in control of the CURRENT.. Secret Team.

      I only suggest this as the known knowledge of the Secret Team suggests that the REAL reason Trump just acquiesced to the CIA on his knees.. is he found out what Jim Garrison said 30yrs ago.

      I’ve posted this many times. But this time..I’ll leave it to you to research.

      What wonderful word use you have there. Reminds me of a 4 year old.

      Found these discripitiors for you…. Your welcome…no big deal….. Took about 45 seconds.
      Take your pick….although all would appear to be appropriate for you.

      Especially after seeing all of your traffic on other sites.
      You do realize, your digital footprint is the size of Canada?

      You do realize that “they ” are watching you?… “they are coming to get you ?… ” They ” are going to send you to back to Pluto…..

      The source….. Webster’s. … Should be easy enough for you to read and reference.

      Btw…… AGAIN….. Thank you for proving exactly what I said.

      And….. It was interesting to see conformation of your “behaviors “…. Through the hundreds of sites… That you have repeated / performed the same behaviors.

      rac·ist/ˈrāsəst/
      noun
      a person who shows or feels discrimination or prejudice against people of other races, or who believes that a particular race is superior to another.

      Paranoid Delusion

      A paranoid delusion is the fixed, false belief that one is being harmed or persecuted by a particular person or group of people. Paranoid delusions are known technically as a “persecutory delusion.”

      Paranoid schizophrenia

      And…..

      . The only hordes of racists, bigots and psycho’s to be seen…. Are the “tolerant ” liberals marching and screaming horrible things…. Chanting hate… Drawing hitler mustache’s….. Smashing and burning…beating and attacking…. Trying to kill people with opposing view points…….

      Very similar to your strange… And consistent …. Attacks on me.

      Again….. Thank you for proving exactly what I said.

      Ahhhhhh….. Tolerance…….. Now that’s funny….

      Protected by the first amendment (of course ) ( set in place by the founding fathers ). ( the founding fathers that you also appear to hate).

      What’s strange….. After seeing all of your ‘practice ‘…. I would have expected you to be better at the attacks.

      And…. Yes…. That would be a direct comparison to the ” liberal”, tolerant people intent on destroying everything.

      You of course, remember all the riots when Obama was elected????

      Oh???? You don’t????….. That’s because…. There weren’t any….

      Interesting comparison there, just for you.

      The only tolerance I see…… Is the “conservative ” crowd…. Not turning around and opening a can of “whoop ass ” the size of Nebraska on the “tolerant liberals ”

      So…. Bloodthirstypitchfork…… Please take this in the spirit it is given…. Get some help….put away the hate…. And….. Stop investing in tin foil…. The hat looks ridiculous.

      Little dick Don, the great uniter of America

      During his inaugural address, President Donald Trump described the nation’s public schools as “an education system flush with cash but which leaves our young and beautiful students deprived of all knowledge.”

      In response, the 59,000-member Badass Teachers Association wrote on its Facebook page:

      This is what our new President thinks of our public schools.

      That teachers and schools are rolling in dough, work in spacious facilities, and want for nothing—yet we are so bad at our jobs that our students know nothing.

      Because I’m trying to remain professional, I’ll refrain from saying the words I want to say.

      But I will say that these comments are ignorant, hurtful, and divisive.

      He had a chance to use this address to unite a fractured nation, and appeal to our better selves, and chose to insult and disparage a profession of which he knows nothing.

      It’s not our schools that are flush with cash yet know nothing.

      It’s you, Dumbass.

      “. The Trump administration has decided against sending a U.S. delegation to Kazakhstan for talks on the war in Syria, despite receiving a formal invitation from the Kazakh government with the backing of Russia and Turkey, the State Department said Saturday.
      Instead, the U.S. will be represented in Astana only by its ambassador to Kazakhstan.

      “The United States is committed to a political resolution to the Syrian crisis through a Syrian-owned process, which can bring about a more representative, peaceful, and united Syria,” the State Department said in a statement. “Given our presidential inauguration and the immediate demands of the transition, a delegation from Washington will not be attending the Astana conference.”
      Russia has seized on the election of Donald Trump to call for greater cooperation between Moscow and Washington to end the Syrian civil war. The Kremlin purposefully excluded former Secretary of State John Kerry from Syria negotiations sponsored by Moscow and Ankara and held at the end of last year. The two countries have sought to take the lead on diplomatic efforts, eclipsing the administration of former President Barack Obama.

      Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and other senior officials, however, have voiced hope that Mr. Trump will be more cooperative in Syria. ”

      “I have thought an awful lot about blowing up the White House,” the 58-year-old pop star said, before adding that she “knows this won’t change anything.”

      Later, she dropped an f-bomb and used another vulgarity to give some advice to President Trump.

      “It seems as though we had all slipped into a false sense of comfort, that justice would prevail and that good would win in the end,” the award-winning singer said.

      So……

      A “mis-fire”…. From an ally…. Imagine if it had come from a ” foe”.

      ” The British government is being accused of concealing the failure of an unarmed ballisticmissilelaunch ahead of a debate in Parliament over whether to refurbish the country’s aging Trident nuclear launching system.

      Britain’s prime minister refused to say Sunday whether she knew about an unarmed Tridentmissilethat reportedly failed when it was test-fired off the coast of Florida last year.

      Theresa May told BBC she has total confidence in Britain’s Trident nuclear launching system, but didn’t confirm or deny a newspaper report about the alleged failure of a ballisticmissiledesigned to carry nuclear warheads.

      The prime minister was asked about themissiletest after the Sunday Times reported that an unarmedmissilelaunched from a submarine off Florida’s coast in June veered off course and may have headed toward the U.S.

      The newspaper said top government officials decided to keep the failure of a Trident II D5 ballisticmissileout of the public eye because of an upcoming debate the next month in Parliament over whether to spend 40 billion pounds to refurbish the aging Trident, the cornerstone of Britain’s nuclear deterrent system.

      “I have absolute faith in our Tridentmissiles,” May said Sunday when asked if she had known about a possiblemissilefailure when she spoke to Parliament in July. “When I made that speech in the House of Commons, what we were talking about was whether or not we should renew our Trident, whether or not we should have Tridentmissiles.”

      The government triumphed in that debate, winning overwhelming support for the Trident overhaul in July, but some opposition figures in the British government now seek an inquiry into the reportedmissilefailure and a possible cover-up.

      Scottish National Party leader Nicola Sturgeon, who opposes having the Trident submarine fleet based in Scotland, said reports of a failure and cover-up are a “hugely serious issue.”

      Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn, also a Trident opponent, called it “a pretty catastrophic error.”

      The British government hasn’t confirmed the newspaper’s report of a misfire.

      A government statement posted on a Defense Ministry blog indicated there was a “routine unarmed Tridentmissiletest launch from HMS Vengeance” in June.

      The Royal Navy launch was “part of an operation which is designed to certify the submarine and its crew,” the statement said. The Vengeance submarine and its crew were “successfully tested and certified,” it said.

      The statement says the government does not provide further details on submarine operations for “obvious” national security reasons.

      The British government’s website says Trident has provided Britain’s security every day for the last 46 years. The system consists of Vanguard-class submarines which can carry up to 16 Trident ballisticmissilesarmed with nuclear warheads.

      Defense policy calls for one of the submarines to be on patrol at all times. ”

      FMR HOUSE SPEAKER SAYS CHILD HE RAPED SHOULD PAY BACK HUSH MONEY SINCE HE BROKE HIS SILENCE
      Published: January 22, 2017

      In April of last year, Dennis Hastert, former Speaker of the House and admitted child rapist, was sentenced to 15 months in prison for paying his victims to keep quiet.

      Hastert was sentenced, not for raping children, but for illegally structuring bank transactions in an effort to cover up his sexual abuse of young members of a wrestling team he coached.

      Now, this pedophile is trying to get back that hush money. Because one of the boys he raped broke his silence, in spite of the $1.7 million in hush money Hastert gave him, this pedophile politician wants his money back.

      When the victim, known only as ‘Individial A’, broke his silence, Hastert’s child rapes were exposed — resulting in the subsequent prosecution.

      “To the extent any contract existed between plaintiff [Individual A] and defendant [Hastert], plaintiff breached that contract,” Hastert’s lawyers wrote.

      “Plaintiff’s breach of conduct resulted in damages to defendant and plaintiff is accordingly required to return $1.7 million to defendant.”

      Individual A did not go public with this information — he merely spoke to the FBI after the transactions were uncovered by investigators. The victim’s attorney, Kristi Browne told NBC that it was Hastert who was at fault.

      “Mr. Hastert has decided that rather than live up to his promise to compensate his victim for his molestation and resulting injury, he will ask his victim to pay him,” she said in a statement.

      “He admits to agreeing to make payments, but then denies that it is an agreement that he has to keep. His response is predictable and we look forward to entering the discovery phase of the case.”

      Hastert, who happens to have a long and friendly past with none other than the Podesta family, is currently serving his sentence at the Federal prison hospital in Rochester, Minnesota. Although Hastert wasn’t sentenced for the pedophilia, because the statute of limitations had run out, the judge labeled him a “serial child molester” and ordered him to enroll in a sex-offender treatment program. Hastert also admitted to, and apologized for, being a child rapist.

      During the trial, Hastert admitted that he “mistreated” and “took advantage” of former students who came forward to say they were molested — three of them anonymously.

      “What I did was wrong and I regret it,” he said at the time.

      Disgustingly enough, this child rapist became speaker of the house after he’d raped these boys. Given the admitted and exposed widespread pedophilia among those in power, it is entirely possible, and indeed likely, that Hastert continued his disgusting abuse while serving as the house speaker.

      Hastert only admitted to the abuse after a federal investigation. At first, the serial child molester denied the accusations and claimed to be a victim of extortion. However, an investigation later revealed the truth.

      In spite of admitting to his crimes, Hastert is still victimizing Individual A by demanding he pay back the hush money.

      According to NBC, not only does Hastert want his money back, he thinks Individual A should pay his attorney’s fees.

      Trump joked that Comey had “become more famous than me” as he greeted the nation’s top law enforcement official. Comey also shook hands with Vice President Mike Pence.
      Some Democrats, including Hillary Clinton, blamed Comey for Clinton’s defeat in last year’s presidential election after he publicly announced a new development in the investigation into the former secretary of state’s private email server days before the vote. Comey later said the new evidence did not change the bureau’s decision not to pursue charges against the Democratic nominee.
      Earlier this month, the Justice Department Inspector General opened an investigation into Comey’s handling of the email case.
      Trump briefly addressed law enforcment officers and other agency heads who helped with Friday’s inauguration festivities. The president said his swearing-in was “such a success and such a safety success. ”

      ” Spilled marbles cause lane closure on Indiana interstate

      Jan 22, 2017

      A truck driver lost all his marbles on I-465 and it caused a bit of a traffic headache Saturday morning.

      Indiana State Police spokesperson John Perrine tells FOX59 that a truck carrying 38,000 pounds of marbles lost its trailer, spilling the load all over the embankment of southbound I-465 near Pendleton Pike.

      One lane of I-465 is expected to be closed most of the day for cleanup. No injuries were reported. ”

      Headlines. Trump’s war with the press…… Huh? The press has always been at war with Trump and for what good? I’m hoping he completely blocks the press- ends White House “briefinings” and talks directly to the populace via his preferred medium. I’m adult enough to be able to interpret his postings as either BS or relevant. I don’t need the press to be an intermediary. They have no credibility to me. He can exclude them and there is no danger to the “Republic”.

      You saw the SNL writer?

      ” Barron Trump will become the first homeschool shooter ”

      Just stupid…. And WRONG on so many levels.

      And…. She was surprised when she had a living room full of cops and secret service in minutes.

      Agree- you have lost your mind if you are a passenger and you want the pilot to have a heart attack and crash the plane. These same types I guess weren’t bothered when Obama brought the same old Wall Street gang who crashed the economy on board as his cabinet one week into his presidency. My favorite cartoon is still one by Mr. Fish with MLK. I’ll try and send a link soon.

      I’ll post the video when I find it.

      “CABIN FEVER Anti-Trumper kicked off plane, drawing cheers
      Jan 23, 2017 9:08 AM EST

      The left wing is always a dangerous place for a Trump supporter to be. Even on an airplane.

      But when Scott Koteskey boarded his flight from Baltimore to Seattle on Saturday, he likely had no idea the woman sitting next to him would berate him in an incoherent and unhinged rant that was all captured on a video that quickly went viral.

      You pretend you have the moral high ground but you put that mans finger on the nuclear button, the unidentified woman said after a flight attendant left to get security.

      That man doesnt believe in climate change, she said, referring to President Trump, and using air quotes to frame the word believe. Do you believe in gravity? Did you know gravity is just a theory?

      Eventually, an airline staffer told the woman she would have to be removed from the plane.

      No. I paid for this seat and Im sitting in it, she said. He is in my space.

      The woman, seated next to her husband, continued refusing requests to leave.

      Im going home now. My mother-in-law, his mother, diedIm going home now, she said. Theres no way Im getting off this planeMy husband lost his mother. Have some respect.

      But her sob story wasnt getting anywhere with the staffer.

      Im terribly sorry for that, but that does not give you the right to treat people the way youve been treating them, he said.

      A second video showed people on the airplane cheering and chanting U.S.A.! as police escorted the woman off the plane.

      Koteskey, in a Facebook post, said the woman was even more discourteous to him before the cameras began rolling. He said the entire incident was touched off when she asked if Koteskey was here to cheer or protest. Koteskey replied he was merely in town to celebrate democracy.

      “And I’m entitled to get drunk and puke in your lap! the woman allegedly said. I’m going to throw up right in your lap! You make me sick! Don’t talk to me! Don’t look at me! Don’t you dare even put your arm on that rest. You disgust me! You should be ashamed of yourself! You put a maniac’s finger on the button” (assuming she means nukes). You are a bigot. You should get off this plane!

      Koteskey said, however, the reactions of his fellow passengers were heartening.

      As the lady was removed I saw that I was surrounded by blacks, Latinos, Asians, and whites, all who had chimed in asking her to be removed and who had defended me, he wrote on Facebook. I was touched and moved knowing later that not all these people were Trump supporters. The black man who took the seat next to me was a registered Democrat and he and I had a very good discussion about the beauty of free speech and coming together when people insult and commit acts of violence just for having differing views.

      “It truly was a great demonstration of AMERICA and its people coming together and standing up for one another.”. “””

      Good to see the Secret Service is still…. Effective.

      “. Madonna says speech at women’s rally ‘taken wildly out of context’

      Jan 23, 2017
      Madonna defended her fiery speech about President Donald Trump on Sunday, saying her words were taken wildly out of context.

      The singer directed her anger at Trump during a speech at the Womens March in Washington on Sunday. She told the crowd that she had at times been angry after the election and had thought “an awful lot about blowing up the White House.”

      Madonna took to Instagram to try to clarify what she was trying to say. She said she was attempting to express there are two ways to respond to Trumps election: with hope or with outrage. She said she hopes to effect change “with love.”

      Madonna wrote that she doesn’t promote violence and people should listen to her speech “in its entirety rather than one phrase taken wildly out of context.”

      Madonnas speech contained numerous vulgar words, including dropping an f-bomb before giving some advice to Trump.

      “It seems as though we had all slipped into a false sense of comfort, that justice would prevail and that good would win in the end,” the award-winning singer said.

      “Well, good did not win this election. But good will win in the end,” Madonna said.

      Later, she performed two of her hits, “Express Yourself” and “Human Nature.” During the latter, she led the crowd in a chant of “I’M NOT YOUR BITCH!”

      A range of other performers and activists, including singers Alicia Keyes and Janelle Monae, trans advocate and writer Janet Mock, and filmmaker Michael Moore, also appeared onstage.

      The Associated Press contributed to this report. “”

      “We are consumed most of all by our fears.”

      You got that right, Peter. Fear of getting fired for standing for your principles is the greatest fear federal employees have.

      Donald has nothing to fear. There won’t be any mass resignations of federal employees. No matter how idiotic the pussygrabber governs, count on the federal employees to grab their ankles and take little dick’s peter. You don’t want to end up like Peter.

      Madonna played the harlot for empire knowing she could make a lot of money. A hetero male would stay far away but gay guys just can’t get close enough. Her “erotic independence” is hardly novel or useful. She has taken what is best enjoyed in private onto a stage. Pathetic.
