CIA concludes 'Russia intervened in elections to help Trump win' but transition team says they come from 'same people who said Saddam had WMDs'

December 10, 2016 by legitgov

CIA concludes 'Russia DID intervene in the elections with the goal of helping Trump win' but transition team dismisses claims saying they come from the 'same people that said Saddam had WMDs' | 09 Dec 2016 | The CIA found that Russia's interference with the presidential elections went beyond an attempt to undermine American democracy as a whole - and actively favored Donald Trump's chances, according to the [globalist dirt-bags at the] Washington Post. Those who provided WikiLeaks with emails from hacked Democratic accounts have been identified by intelligence authorities as members of a Russian campaign who worked towards the goal of seeing Trump elected, officials told the Post. The shocking conclusion, made by a 'consensus' of intelligence [sic] agencies, was reported the same day President Barack Obama ordered a review of cyber attacks that targeted Democratic organizations and operatives during the 2016 elections. But Trump's transition team shot down the findings, issuing a statement that read: 'These are the same people that said Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction.'

Top House Republican Unveils Plan to Gut Social Security

December 10, 2016 by legitgov

Top House Republican Unveils Plan to Gut Social Security --Texas congressman's bill violates Donald Trump's promise to protect program | 09 Dec 2016 | President-elect Donald Trump distinguished himself on the campaign trail as the rare Republican candidate promising not to cut Social Security and Medicare. But Republicans in Congress have other plans for the two popular social insurance programs -- and they are wasting no time rolling them out. Rep. Sam Johnson (R-Texas), chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee’s Subcommittee on Social Security, released a plan Thursday to reform Social Security that would drastically reduce benefits. The bill would make the program less of a universal earned benefit and more of a means-tested safety net that aims only to provide basic support to the poorest retirees and disabled workers.

December 10, 2016 by walden9

Trump transition team for Energy Department seeks names of employees involved in climate meetings | 09 Dec 2016 | Donald Trump’s transition team has issued a list of 74 questions for the Energy Department, asking agency officials to identify which employees and contractors have worked on forging an international climate pact as well as domestic efforts to cut the nation’s carbon output. The questionnaire requests a list of those individuals who have taken part in international climate talks over the past five years and “which programs within DOE are essential to meeting the goals of President Obama’s Climate Action Plan" ... Thousands of scientists have signed petitions calling on the president-elect and his team to respect scientific integrity and refrain from singling out individual researchers whose work might conflict with the new administration’s policy goals. This potential clash could prompt a major schism within the federal government, with many career officials waging a battle against incoming political appointees.

Secret CIA assessment says Russia was trying to help Trump win White House

December 10, 2016 by walden9

Secret CIA assessment says Russia was trying to help Trump win White House | 09 Dec 2016 | The CIA has concluded in a secret assessment that Russia intervened in the 2016 election to help Donald Trump win the presidency, rather than just to undermine confidence in the U.S. electoral system, according to officials briefed on the matter. Intelligence agencies have identified individuals with connections to the Russian government who provided WikiLeaks with thousands of hacked emails from the Democratic National Committee and others, including Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman, according to U.S. officials. Those officials described the individuals as actors known to the intelligence community and part of a wider Russian operation to boost Trump and hurt Clinton’s chances.

Orange Coast College Student Threatened With Expulsion After Recording Professor's Anti-Trump Tirade | 08 Dec 2016 | A college professor went off on president-elect Donald Trump in her Orange Coast College class. There are now threats of expulsion and threats of legal action. CBS2 listened to the controversial rant. The human sexuality teacher — Olga Perez Stable Cox — called Trump's election an act of terrorism.” “Our nation is divided. We have been assaulted. It is an act of terrorism,” she told the students. She added, “One of the most frightening things for me, and most people in my life, is that the people who are committing the assault are among us.” That was part of the teacher’s rant about Trump. One student was so offended by the speech, he recorded it with his cellphone.

December 10, 2016 by walden9

Giuliani withdraws from consideration for Trump's Cabinet | 09 Dec 2016 | President-elect Donald Trump announced Friday that former New York Mayor Rudolph W. Giuliani removed himself from consideration for a position in the new administration. Mr. Giuliani, who was an early supporter of Mr. Trump and one of the most prominent surrogates on the campaign trail, was a top contender for secretary of state but apparently had fallen out of favor with the president-elect in recent weeks. “Rudy would have been an outstanding member of the Cabinet in several roles, but I fully respect and understand his reasons for remaining in the private sector,” Mr. Trump said in a statement. Mr. Giuliani’s name also was floated for running the Department of Homeland Security, but the post is expected to go to retired Marine Corps Gen. John F. Kelly.

December 9, 2016 by walden9

It is unclear that the contents of the report on alleged Russion election hacking will be made public | 09 Dec 2016 | President Obama has ordered American intelligence agencies to produce a full report on Russian efforts to influence the 2016 presidential election, his homeland security adviser said on Friday. He also directed them to develop a list of “lessons learned” from the broad campaign the United States has accused Russia of carrying out to steal emails, publish their contents and probe the vote-counting system. “We may have crossed a new threshold here,” Lisa Monaco, one of Mr. Obama’s closest aides and the former head of the national security division of the Justice Department, told reporters Friday. “He expects to receive this report before he leaves office.” The report, according to senior administration officials, will trace the attacks on the Democratic National Committee and on prominent individuals like John D. Podesta, the chairman of Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign.

December 9, 2016 by legitgov

Obama orders 'full review' of [alleged] Russia interference over 'election hacking' | 09 Dec 2016 | [Globalist fraud] Barack Obama has ordered US intelligence to review evidence of so-called 'Russian interference' in the 2016 presidential election after coming under sustained pressure from congressional Democrats. The review will be one of Obama's final instructions to the intelligence agencies, which will soon report to Donald Trump, whom congressional Democrats consider the beneficiary of a hack targeting the Democratic National Committee. Lisa Monaco, the White House counterterrorism director, announced what she called a "full review" at a breakfast briefing sponsored by the Christian Science Monitor on Friday.

December 9, 2016 by walden9

On Campus, Trump Fans Say They Need 'Safe Spaces' | 08 Dec 2016 | Conservative students who voted for Mr. Trump say that even though their candidate won, their views are not respected. Some are adopting the language of the left, saying they need a "safe space" to express their opinions - a twist resented by left-leaning protesters...Ibtihal Makki, a self-confident senior in a pink hijab who is studying biopsychology and neuroscience and is chairwoman of a student government diversity committee, objected to conservatives on campus saying they needed safe spaces to express their views. "To turn around and say that they need safe spaces after their candidate won I think is ironic and hypocritical," Ms. Makki said.

Mr Younger also warned that "hybrid warfare", which included cyber-attacks and subverting democracy, was becoming an "increasingly dangerous phenomenon".

George Will: Trump Involvement In Carrier Deal "Socialism"

George Will: Trump Involvement In Carrier Deal "Socialism" [LOL]  | 07 Dec 2016 | George Will: The problem is when you have, in the Carrier case, political power used to bring pressure upon a privately owned institution that has fiduciary duty to maximize shareholder value and drive them off with political pressure with making economic decisions about economic assets, you are, in effect, at the end of the day, getting the federal government involved in capital allocation. There is a name for that, it's called socialism.

I was done in by fake news! We need to fix the Internet | 08 Dec 2016| Hillary Clinton is back on the attack ... blaming the Internet, at least in part, for her loss to Donald Trump -- and she's demanding some big changes.

Democrats “draw a line in the sand” over Trump's E.P.A. nominee

December 8, 2016 by walden9

Democrats “draw a line in the sand” over Trump's E.P.A. nominee | 08 Dec 2016 | Democrats, progressives, and Trump unenthusiasts had girded themselves to be outraged by the candidates Donald Trump would choose to fill his Cabinet, and, so far, his nominees have not disappointed. A retired neurosurgeon who has likened anti-segregation efforts to communist oppression will be in charge of Housing and Urban Development. A former Goldman Sachs banker will lead the Treasury Department. A billionaire who wants to dismantle the public-school system has been nominated as Secretary of Education. And most recently, wrestling executive and longtime Trump supporter Linda McMahon was rewarded with the Small Business Administration. But the announcement that Scott Pruitt would head up the Environmental Protection Administration—an agency that the Oklahoma attorney general has spent most of his career attempting to destroy—has rightly touched the rawest nerve, setting off what could be a drawn-out and contentious Senate confirmation fight as Democrats vow to oppose his appointment.

Trump expected to name fast food CEO Andy Puzder as pick for Labor secretary | 08 Dec 2016 |  Donald Trump is expected to name fast food CEO Andy Puzder as his Labor secretary, a source familiar with the transition told CNBC. Puzder heads CKE Restaurants, the California-based parent of Carl's Jr. and Hardee's, a private company that generates about $1.3 billion in annual revenue and employs roughly 70,000 people. He joins a string of wealthy Trump Cabinet picks with a business background, including Treasury choice Steven Mnuchin and Commerce pick Wilbur Ross. Puzder has argued broadly against too much regulation and cheered Trump's presidential win, which was driven by a populist message, as a victory for business. He has also contended that broad minimum wage hikes cut job opportunities, especially for young people, and opposed expansion of overtime pay.

Fukushima radiation has reached U.S. shores --Cesium-134 for first time has been detected in a Canadian salmon - Fukushima InFORM project | 07 Dec 2016 | For the first time, seaborne radiation from Japan's Fukushima nuclear disaster has been detected on the West Coast of the United States. Cesium-134, the so-called fingerprint of Fukushima, was measured in seawater samples taken from Tillamook Bay and Gold Beach in Oregon, researchers from the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution are reporting. Because of its short half-life, cesium-134 can only have come from Fukushima.

The liberal filmmaker shared a link to the website for DisruptJ20, a campaign for "a bold mobilization against the inauguration of Donald Trump on January 20, 2017."

December 8, 2016 by legitgov

U.S. judge reverses order requiring vote recount in Michigan | 07 Dec 2016 | A federal judge in Michigan on Wednesday revoked his order requiring a recount of the state's presidential vote sought by Jill Stein, siding with a state appeals court that found the Green Party candidate had no grounds to mount the challenge. U.S. District Judge Mark Goldsmith's ruling has the effect of halting the recount in Michigan, at least for now, following conflicting rulings a day earlier by federal and state appeals courts...Goldsmith, in deferring to the Michigan appeals court, said Stein had not presented valid reasons for him to override that court's decision, which found that she was not an "aggrieved" candidate with standing to demand a recount.

Dismal Jobs Report

December 8, 2016 by legitgov

Dismal Jobs Report | 07 Dec 2016 | The...media delivered the false news, not from Russian propaganda websites such as the Washington Post accuses this one of being, but from Obama's US Bureau of Labor Statistics. The false news is that the collapsing economy continues to boom with 178,000 new jobs in November and a further fall in the rate of unemployment to 4.6%...The facts are that November produced only 9,000 full time jobs, an improvement over the previous month when full time employment declined by 103,000 jobs--another fact that you did not hear about from the [media].

Trump to pick foe of Obama climate agenda to run EPA | 07 Dec 2016 | Donald Trump will name Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt, an ardent opponent of President Barack Obama's measures to curb climate change, as head of the Environmental Protection Agency, a Trump transition team official said on Wednesday, a choice that enraged green activists and cheered the oil industry...Since becoming the top prosecutor for the major oil- and gas-producing state in 2011, Pruitt, 48, has launched multiple lawsuits against regulations put forward by the agency he is now poised to lead, suing to block federal measures to reduce smog and curb toxic emissions from power plants.

Transgender Community Wants Proper Identification After Deadly Oakland Warehouse Fire

December 8, 2016 by walden9

Transgender Community Wants Proper Identification After Deadly Oakland Warehouse Fire | 06 Dec 2016 | The Oakland warehouse artists' enclave was supposed to be a safe place, emotionally and spiritually, for the artists and free spirits who chose lives off the beaten track. An electronic music party had also attracted many in the transgender community, who had come together on Friday night, as they did regularly, to dance with friends and blow off steam. But physically, the enclave wasn't safe at all on Friday. A fire ripped through the illegally converted warehouse at 1315 East 31st Avenue in the city's Fruitvale neighborhood, killing at least 36 people.

2016 Person of the Year Donald Trump

December 7, 2016 by walden9

2016 Person of the Year Donald Trump | 07 Dec 2016 | For all of [Donald] Trump's public life, tastemakers and intellectuals have dismissed him as a vulgarian and carnival barker, a showman with big flash and little substance. But what those critics never understood was that their disdain gave him strength. For years, he fed off the disrespect and used it to grab more tabloid headlines, to connect to common people. Now he has upended the leadership of both major political parties and effectively shifted the political direction of the international order. He will soon command history's most lethal military, along with economic levers that can change the lives of billions. And the people he has to thank are those he calls "the forgotten," millions of American voters who get paid by the hour in shoes that will never touch these carpets--working folk, regular Janes and Joes, the dots in the distance.

UMD president 'offends' students by making sanctuary pledge in Spanish | 06 Dec 2016 | University of Maryland President Wallace Loh inadvertently outraged liberal students by using Spanish while pledging to protect illegal immigrant students, a move deemed "offensive" to UMD's immigrant population. Much of Loh's annual State of the Campus Address was a "a clear call to embrace diversity," according to The Diamondback, including a promise to protect illegal immigrant students on campus by barring immigration officials from campus if they don't have a warrant and refusing to voluntarily share undocumented student information.

Donald Trump Names Retired Gen. John Kelly as Homeland Security Chief | 07 Dec 2016 | President-elect Donald Trump has chosen retired Marine Gen. John Kelly, whose last command included oversight of the Guantanamo Bay detention center, to run the Department of Homeland Security, people close to the transition team said Wednesday. Kelly, who joined the Marine Corps in 1970, retired earlier this year, wrapping up a final, three-year post as head of U.S. Southern Command, which spanned some of the more fractious debate over the Obama administration’s ultimately failed pledge to close Guantanamo.

Trump lays out non-interventionist U.S. military policy | 06 Dec 2016 | President-elect Donald Trump laid out a U.S. military policy on Tuesday that would avoid interventions in foreign conflicts and instead focus heavily on defeating the Islamic State militancy. In the latest stop on a "thank you" tour of states critical to his Nov. 8 election win, Trump introduced his choice for defense secretary, General James Mattis, to a large crowd in this city near the Fort Bragg military base, which has deployed soldiers to 90 countries around the world. "We will stop racing to topple foreign regimes that we know nothing about, that we shouldn't be involved with," Trump said. "Instead, our focus must be on defeating terrorism and destroying ISIS, and we will."

Boeing Said to Offer Talks on Air Force One After Trump Tweets | 06 Dec 2016 | Boeing Co. executives told officials on President-elect Donald Trump’s transition team that the cost of a new version of Air Force One could be lowered if the government agrees to reduce its requirements for the plane, people familiar with the discussions said.
