January 21, 2017 by walden9

Political Science's "Theory of Everything" on the 2016 US Election

January 21, 2017 by walden9

Political Science's "Theory of Everything" on the 2016 US Election | 19 Jan 2017 | [Had enough of the hysterical hue and cry, the hand-wringing, the gnashing of teeth, and the hyperbolic screeching from the ideologically-committed, intellectually bankrupt and empty-headed media pundits, the protesters, and the other lugubrious mourners of Trump's ascension? Then read this.] The invisible rulers of the US establishment were revealed by Professor C. Wright Mill in his article titled, The Structure of Power in American Society (The British Journal of Sociology, March 1958), in which he explains how, "the high military, the corporation executives, the political directorate have tended to come together to form the power elite of America"...He describes how the power elite can be best described as a "triangle of power," linking the corporate, executive government, and military factions: "There is a political economy numerously linked with military order and decision. This triangle of power is now a structural fact, and it is the key to any understanding of the higher circles in America today." The 2016 US election, like all other US elections, featured a gallery of pre-selected candidates that represented the three factions and their interests within the power elite. The 2016 US election, however, was vastly different from previous elections. As the election dragged on the power elite became bitterly divided, with the majority supporting Hilary Clinton, the candidate pre-selected by the political and corporate factions, while the military faction rallied around their choice of Donald Trump. [Thus, what we are experiencing is a division and struggle within the ruling sectors, not fascism versus some innocent liberalism. The "innocent liberalism" is thin scrim for a ruling sector, the corporatocacy. The media mouthpieces of these "innocent liberals" are trying to tarnish another faction by calling them "fascists." And liberals and leftists act as if the corporate sector is not behind it. Perhaps they don't realize that the New York Times, the Washington Post, MSNBC, CNN and other corporate media outlets are speaking for corporations! In faet, they ARE corporations, speaking.]

D.C. police: 217 people arrested during protests | 20 Jan | Protests in Washington during President Trump's inaugural festivities have led to at least 217 arrests, interim D.C. police chief Peter Newsham said at an evening news conference.

January 20, 2017 by walden9

Moments after taking the oath, President Trump transforms White House website | 20 Jan 2017 | Just moments after President Donald Trump took the oath of office Friday, the official White House website was transformed into a set of policy pledges that offered the broad contours of the Trump administration's top priorities -- a list that included fierce support for law enforcement bordering on vigilantism, an immediate elimination of the White House's policy page on climate page and a notable absence of any directives involving President Obama's Affordable Care Act. "Our job is not to make life more comfortable for the rioter, the looter, or the violent disrupter," reads the law and order section, which calls for "more law enforcement" and "more effective policing." "Our job is to make life more comfortable for parents who want their kids to be able to walk the streets safely. Or the senior citizen waiting for a bus. Or the young child walking home from school."
