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)

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.

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?

A: The first direct presidential nomination.

You decide the issues

You shape the debate

You choose the candidates

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.

Why is this not already on the books in every state?

The Constitution has specific requirements about who can be elected President of the United States, but does not provide for any mechanism to ensure these requirements are met.
It has always been assumed no one would run for president without actually being eligible to hold the office.
The problem is, there’s no agency in place to ask for that documentation, and no procedure for making sure those documents are valid.

This is definitely an interesting development in the political arena.  I’m wondering, if it is determined that Obama was NOT eligible to be President, what happens to all his policies he passed? Will be go to jail? What about all the people who aided his rise to the presidency? Like Pelosi?

I hope someone who is knowledgeable about this will comment. Any thoughts?

I believe the following should be evidence enough to close the debate about allowing or NOT allowing Sharia Law to be practiced in the U.S.

 

Here is a pictorial which shows the difference between a Muslim Country and the United States.

 

A typical scene in the U.S. :

 

 

 

A typical scene in a Muslim country:

 

 

Now, I know men are “visual” animals by nature, so…..if you think about it, do you really want American women to be walking around like this?

 

France Today....the Muslim population is growing and taking over Europe.

Yeah…..NO, just as I thought.  Of course you don’t want that to happen here!

 

Honestly, I don’t believe American women would allow that either.  Why? Well, as any man knows, we love our clothes and shoes, and all the accessories that goes along with our wardrobe.

 

We refuse to be subject to the following limited choices:

 

Any thoughts?

As the Democrats realize they will probably lose many seats this November with the mid-term elections, they are utilizing all means of corruption as a last attempt to save themselves. I said before, as I am stating now, they will stop at nothing to keep their power.

The following is from the Houston Chronicle, reporting that yes, it is business as usual for the Democrats. Another “Acorn type” organization here in Texas, called “Houston Votes”, has submitted bogus votes and yes, even non-citizen votes to aid their candidates.

This is only part of the article, to read the whole story:

http://www.chron.com/disp/story.mpl/headline/metro/7170826.html

Harris County Tax Assessor Collector Leo Vasquez accused a nonprofit group of submitting thousands of bogus voter registration applications in recent months in what he said appears to be a campaign to taint the voter rolls.

Vasquez said his office has received thousands of duplicate applications, including cases in which the office has received six applications for the same person. Other irregularities he cited in the more than 25,000 applications submitted by Houston Votes include cases of underage applicants and people who identified themselves as non-citizens.

Tax Assessor-Collector & Voter Registrar Harris County Tax Office

“The integrity of the voter roll of Harris County, Texas, appears to be under an organized and systematic attack by the group operating under the name Houston Votes,” Vasquez said.

The group is the voter registration arm of Texans Together, which works to increase civic participation in low-income neighborhoods.

QUESTIONABLE APPLICATIONS

Among the findings by voter registration officials who reviewed 25,640 applications submitted by Houston Votes:

• 7,193 resulted in new voters.

• Another 10,500 are presumed legitimate, but are being checked at the Secretary of State’s office for name and address changes.

• 1,597 different people applied to vote at least twice.

• 325 applications were from underage applicants.

• 25 applications were from people who identified themselves as non-citizens.

• 1,014 applications were from people who already were voters.

• 3,531 applications were rejected because the information in their applications did not match their driver’s license or Social Security numbers.

The Democratic Party has become the Lawyers’ Party.
by Bruce Walker


Barack Obama is a lawyer.
Michelle Obama is a lawyer.
Hillary Clinton is a lawyer.
Bill Clinton is a lawyer.
John Edwards is a lawyer.
Elizabeth Edwards is a lawyer.
Every Democrat nominee since 1984 went to law school (although Gore did not graduate).
Every Democrat vice presidential nominee since 1976, except for Lloyd Bentsen, went to law school.
Look at leaders of the Democrat Party in Congress:
Harry Reid is a lawyer.
Nancy Pelosi is a lawyer.

The Republican Party is different.

President Bush is a businessman.
Vice President Cheney is a businessman.
The leaders of the Republican Revolution.
Newt Gingrich was a history professor.
Tom Delay was an exterminator.
Dick Armey was an economist.
House Minority Leader Boehner was a plastic manufacturer.
The former Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist is a heart surgeon.

Who was the last Republican president who was a lawyer? Gerald Ford, who left office 31 years ago and who barely won the Republican nomination as a sitting president, running against Ronald Reagan in 1976.

The Republican Party is made up of real people doing real work, who are often the targets of lawyers. The Democrat Party is made up of lawyers. Democrats mock and scorn men who create wealth, like Bush and Cheney, or who heal the sick, like Frist, or who immerse themselves in history, like Gingrich.

The Lawyers’ Party sees these sorts of people, who provide goods and services that people want, as the enemies of America . And, so we have seen the procession of official enemies, in the eyes of the Lawyers’ Party, grow.

Against whom do Hillary and Obama rail? Pharmaceutical companies, oil companies, hospitals, manufacturers, fast food restaurant chains, large retail businesses, bankers, and anyone producing anything of value in our nation.
This is the natural consequence of viewing everything through the eyes of lawyers. Lawyers solve problems by successfully representing their clients, in this case the American people. Lawyers seek to have new laws passed, they seek to win lawsuits, they press appellate courts to overturn precedent, and lawyers always parse language to favor their side.

Confined to the narrow practice of law, that is fine, but it is an awful way to govern a great nation.

When politicians as lawyers begin to view some Americans as clients and other Americans as opposing parties, then the role of the legal system in our life becomes all-consuming.  This also results in some Americans becoming “adverse parties” of our very government. We are not all litigants in some vast social class-action suit. We are citizens of a republic that promises us a great deal of freedom from laws, from courts, and from lawyers.

Today, we are drowning in laws; we are contorted by judicial decisions; we are driven to distraction by omnipresent lawyers in all parts of our once private lives. America has a place for laws and lawyers, but that place is modest and reasonable, not vast and unchecked. When the most important decision for our next president is whom he will appoint to the Supreme Court, the role of lawyers and the law in America is too big. When lawyers use criminal prosecution as a continuation of politics by other means, as happened in the lynching of Scooter Libby and Tom Delay, then the power of lawyers in America is too great. When House Democrats sue America in order to hamstring our efforts to learn what our enemies are planning to do to us, then the role of litigation in America has become crushing.
We cannot expect the Lawyers’ Party to provide real change, real reform or real hope in America. Most Americans know that a republic in which every major government action must be blessed by nine unelected judges is not what Washington intended in 1789. Most Americans grasp that we cannot fight a war when ACLU lawsuits snap at the heels of our defenders. Most Americans intuit that more lawyers and judges will not restore declining moral values or spark the spirit of enterprise in our economy.

Perhaps Americans will understand that change cannot be brought to our nation by those lawyers who already largely dictate American society and business. Perhaps Americans will see that hope does not come from the mouths of lawyers but from personal dreams nourished by hard work. Perhaps Americans will embrace the truth that more lawyers with more power will only make our problems worse.

The United States has 5% of the world’s population and 66% of the world’s lawyers! Tort (Legal) reform legislation has been introduced in congress several times in the last several years to limit punitive damages in ridiculous lawsuits such as “spilling hot coffee on yourself and suing the establishment that sold it to you” and also to limit punitive damages in huge medical malpractice lawsuits. This legislation has continually been blocked from even being voted on by the Democratic Party. When you see that 97% of the political contributions from the American Trial Lawyers Association goes to the Democratic Party, then you realize who is responsible for our medical and product costs being so high!
