Trump

                                         WTF GOP
Racist, Sexist, Xenophobic Demagogue Wins NH…

By Ryan Grim Washington Bureau Chief, The Huffington Post, and Igor Bobic Associate Politics Editor, The Huffington Post.

Editor’s note: Donald Trump is a serial liar, rampant xenophobe, racist, misogynist, birther and bully who has repeatedly pledged to ban all Muslims — 1.6 billion members of an entire religion — from entering the U.S.

 

I am outraged by the headline news above, published on February 10, 2016, right after the New Hampshire Primary results.

I myself have studied Journalism, and it is clear to me that The Huffington Post has blatantly thrown away the ethics book in regards to its Journalistic reporting.  My Journalism Professor constantly reminded us that a reporter’s job is to report, Who, What, Where, When, and Why, simple as that, and the reporting must not include “opinion”.

The headline above is offensive, unprofessional, and shows opinion from the writers/editors. In my opinion, Mr. Grim, and Mr. Bobic, have failed miserably as journalists, and the Editor’s note, is begging for Mr. Trump to file a Libel suit against the publisher!

I have compiled some information on the ethics of Journalism, and can only hope that journalistic reporting will change to what it is supposed to be, that of reporting the facts and the truth.

Legal Responsibility:

Any libelous or defamatory presentation ………, is not permittable and should strictly be avoided by the journalist.

Professional Responsibility:  A journalist should have sincerity and commitment towards its profession.

The presentation must be truthful and unbiased above all and shall never bring any embarrassment or complicity to the organization.

Guiding Principles:

Journalism’s obligation is to the public. Journalism places the public’s interests ahead of commercial, political and personal interests. Journalism empowers viewers, listeners and readers to make more informed decisions for themselves; it does not tell people what to believe or how to feel.

Ethical decision-making should occur at every step of the journalistic process, including story selection, news-gathering, production, presentation and delivery.

The really sad thing is all the major news media outlets only report opinions, and get away with slanderous writings that do nothing but confuse the readers. Sadly, it is reflective of the corrupt political system that is in place at this time also.

More than ever, the public, and citizens must do their own research to find the truth regarding News and Information today. Unfortunately, there is too much opinion that is being reported as truth. As they state in Marketing, “Buyer Beware”! (Caveat Emptor)

It is very disturbing to me that the President of the United States is once again threatening to overreach his powers via Executive Order in regards to guns and gun laws.
It is important to remember that a Tyrant will take away your guns so that they will have control over you and the Country. This is the path he is moving towards, to give power to both himself and the Federal Government.

Here is what the second Amendment says:
U.S. Constitution — “Amendment II –A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.”

[Cornell University Law School, http://www.law.cornell.edu/constitution/constitution.billofrights.html#amendmentii ]

Very simply, and very effectively, our Founding Fathers protected the ability of each individual citizen, and the state of which he is a part, to “keep and bear arms” for defense. In reading this amendment, you must focus on the first tiny comma, for that punctuation mark divides this guarantee into two separate, but equal, parts.
First, each “free state” of the Union was granted the ability to create and maintain a “well regulated militia”; note that his guarantee says, “well regulated”, not Federal Government regulated!
After the comma, a second guarantee was granted, i.e., the “right of the people” to ” keep and bear arms”. The term, “people” simply means the individual citizen of the United States of America.

Therefore, each individual citizen has a Constitutionally-guaranteed right to keep and bear arms!

Then, the second comma contains the guarantee: “shall not be infringed”. In other words, both the right of the state to maintain a militia AND the right of the individual citizen to keep and bear arms “shall not be infringed”. This definition is the simple, straightforward meaning of the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.

History repeats itself, from October 2, 1865, The Gonzales Flag, Texas

Texas Representative Steve Stockman is threatening to push the impeachment of Obama in regards to gun control. He clearly explains how Obama’s actions will violate our 2nd amendment right:

“The President’s actions are an existential threat to this nation. The right of the people to keep and bear arms is what has kept this nation free and secure for over 200 years. The very purpose of the Second Amendment is to stop the government from disallowing people the means to defend themselves against tyranny. Any proposal to abuse executive power and infringe upon gun rights must be repelled with the stiffest legislative force possible.

The President’s actions are not just an attack on the Constitution and a violation of his sworn oath of office – they are a direct attack on Americans that place all of us in danger. If the President is allowed to suspend constitutional rights on his own personal whims, our free republic has effectively ceased to exist.” ~ Rep. Steve Stockman, R-Texas
It is important to pay attention to what is happening in Washington, as your rights are about to be taken away right under your nose. If that happens, I see a revolution in the near future.
I leave you this quote by Edmund Burke to think about, especially since Obama seems to have the masses under his “charismatic spell”.

“The people never give up their liberties, but under some delusion.” ~Edmund Burke

About 2016: Obama’s America and the Filmmakers.

 

When Obama says he is not finished, and there is more work to do, that is all he reveals about his “plan”. This is a must see movie for anyone who believes he does not have good intentions for this great nation. Click the link, view the movie trailer, then go out and rent this movie.

It will make everything clear about where this country is headed under his leadership. When I watched this movie, I knew this country was doomed. Say goodbye to the Republic, or Democracy, we are going to be transformed to a European-style Socialist country.

Obama’s dream is to take down this country period.

He is the Great Destroyer.

So, What is the problem?

I mean….what are you scared of? Liberty, Freedom? The Pursuit of happiness? I mean really….you would think this country is ashamed of these long-life liberties that are ordained to each and every one of us!

If you listen to what Obama and the democrats say….making a profit is bad. Someone making a profit, utilizing the free enterprise system. Why is it so bad? To make profits, and succeed? I just do not understand their logic.

That is what separates us from the REST OF THE WORLD. Think of it. We allow people to start up a small business, and with capitalism…the result is growth! What is better than growing a business and expanding? How do you think McDonald’s or Wendy’s grew to be such a huge success? By expanding and growing to other states, and even expanding to other countries!

Do not be fooled by those who try to scare you into subservience…..yes…you do not want to owe ANYTHING TO ANYONE. Trust me….I know.

Be self-sufficient…and fight for what is right. You will appreciate yourself in the end.

Our political system is broken and our country is in trouble! The two political parties are so polarized that Washington is paralyzed. Our elected officials continue a vicious cycle of mindless partisanship, inaction on crucial issues and unsustainable dysfunction covered endlessly in the 24-hour news cycle.

 Now is the time for leadership that puts principled progress above petty politics and restores cooperation, civility, and compromise. Leadership for genuine and sustainable change can only come from the people.

 In 2012, Americans Elect (AE) will empower the people to nominate a competitive third ticket for President and Vice President through the first-ever Online Convention. In the next presidential election, through AE Online Convention, ALL of US will have a greater voice; not just the voters in the early state primaries and caucuses, like Iowa, New Hampshire, and South Carolina; not the talking heads or the paid “experts”; not the political pundits – Fox News or MSNBC; not the loud voices on the far left and far right.

 The nominees who emerge from the Convention will not be beholden to any political party or special interest, will bridge the vital center of American politics, and will be able to jolt our political system into working again.

What Is Americans Elect?

Americans Elect (AE)

Americans Elect is a second process, not a third party. It is a brand new way all voters can participate in selecting a presidential ticket to be placed on the November 2012 ballot in all 50 states. It will hold a nominating convention to pick that ticket in the summer of 2012, and every registered voter in America regardless of party may sign up right now to be a voting Delegate (at http://www.AmericansElect.org). Anyone constitutionally qualified to serve as President may run for the Americans Elect nomination as long as they reach across the political space and pick a running mate from another party. A ticket that is bigger than any party.

 We expect millions of delegates to participate. The ticket will have ballot access in all 50 states. And we expect major candidates to run and others to be drafted by the delegates themselves. We are going to be working hard to get ourselves introduced to the American public but we know that we cannot do it alone. Our hope is that millions of Americans across the country will be able to hear about Americans Elect from their most trusted sources: friends, families, and neighbors. And that starts with you.

How Does This Second Process Work?

Every single registered voter in America can be a Delegate and vote in the AE Online Convention.

No fine print. No exceptions. Open to everyone regardless of party affiliation or political views.

1. Become a Delegate. Go to AE website – http://www.americanselect.org.

2. Participate in AE’s online surveys. Delegates will define the issues most important to them.

3. Discuss these issues online or at meet-ups with other delegates.

4. Participate in shaping the AE platform questions for all constitutionally qualified candidates to answer.

5. Review candidates.

6. Draft candidates.

7. Narrow the field of candidates.

8. Vote in the Online Convention.

A Rules Committee will determine how the Online Convention operates. Of course, experienced legal experts will be on the committee, but Convention Delegates will be on the Rules Committee, too. All AE Delegates will have a chance to weigh in with their own ideas – and the best will become a part of the rules.

What is Americans Elect?

You shape the debate

You nominate the President

Who should participate?

A: Every voter who wants a voice that counts.

No matter your party affiliation

No matter the color of your state

No matter your political views

What makes Americans Elect different?

A: Americans Elect is not a traditional party.

It’s a new way to nominate a President

It’s open to voters from any party

It’s open to candidates from any party

And it’s not another advocacy group.

There’s no agenda or ideology

Voters define the issues themselves

The final vote really counts in 2012

How does it work?

A: Define what matters to you

Rank the issues

Determine your views

See how you compare

A: Shape the “platform of questions”

Discuss the issues

Match and meet up with other voters

Decide the questions all candidates must answer

A: Choose candidates who share your views

Match with existing candidates

Draft new candidates

Watch videos and debates

A: Nominate your choice for president

Narrow the field

Evaluate VP choices

Vote in the online convention

Why is this important?

A: Every voter deserves an equal vote in the nominating process.

Currently, where you live determines how much your primary vote counts

Some voters—and some states—have no meaningful vote at all

Most independent voters have no say in the primary system

It’s the first direct presidential nomination in US history.

Why is this important?

A: Voters demand change.

Voters are increasingly dissatisfied with their own parties

States are postponing or even canceling their primaries

Too many Americans have no real choice in the nominating process

Technology makes it possible.

To cost-effectively reach millions of voters

To build a secure online convention

To verify every voter and accurately count every vote

America can finally nominate a President, directly.

 The winning ticket will answer directly to American voters.

A: All candidates must make a “bipartisan pledge” to put America’s interests before those of their party finalist candidates will be free to choose a running mate from any party they choose The winning ticket will be chosen directly by millions of voters The winning ticket will be on the ballot in every state.

 Can we trust the outcome?

A: Americans Elect is building a secure online convention:

Every voter’s registration status will be verified.

Every vote will be counted fairly and accurately, and will generate a printable confirmation.

An independent panel of election experts will verify the results.

All candidates will be verified and vetted.

All candidates will be verified as constitutionally-eligible to run.

All candidates will pass a standard vetting process including background checks.

An independent, nonpartisan committee will certify all finalist candidates.
