    Robert Reich, who served as Secretary of Labor under President Bill Clinton, is urging his fellow progressives to block President-elect Donald Trump from carrying out his policy plans for his first 100 days in office, including a suggestion to “boycott all Trump products, real estate, hotels, resorts, everything.” Reich’s “First 100 Day Resistance Agenda” also urges Democrats in Congress to draw out the hearings of Trump’s Cabinet nominees while progressive journalists “dig into their backgrounds”. “Our version of ‘Drill, baby, drill’ is ‘Sue, baby, sue’,” he continued. “Throw sand in the gears. Lawyers, get organized.” He also recommended “coordinated fund-raising”...

  • Trump aides: Democrats' complaints are sour grapes

    Sour grapes. That’s how Donald Trump’s closest advisers see Democrats’ complaints that Moscow hacked their private emails this election season in a bid to sow discord among their supporters and sway the election toward Republicans. The pushback comes ahead of the Electoral College vote, which was expected to make official Trump’s election win and pave his way to take office on Jan. 20. “Let’s assume it’s true,” Reince Priebus, Trump’s incoming chief of staff, said Sunday of Russian interference in the election. “There’s no evidence that shows that the outcome of the election was changed because of a couple dozen...

    I know how to be a gracious loser. I could have let it go last week when Kellyanne Conway, Donald Trump’s campaign manager, challenged me to look her in the eye and say she ran a campaign that gave white supremacists a platform. I considered for a split second. I knew you were supposed to be gracious when you come for the post-election forum at Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government. But I decided this was a year where normal rules don’t apply. Speaking the truth was more important.

    Donald Trump ran a campaign of racist demagoguery against Muslim Americans, Hispanic immigrants, and black protesters. He indulged the worst instincts of the American psyche and winked to the stream of white nationalists and anti-Semites who backed his bid for the White House. Millions of Americans voted for this campaign, thus elevating white nationalism and white reaction to the Oval Office.

    So he won. The nation takes a deep breath. Raw ego and proud illiteracy have won out and a severely learning-disabled man with a real character problem will be president. We are so exhausted from thinking about this election, millions of people will take up leaf-raking and garage cleaning with intense pleasure. We liberal elitists are wrecks. The Trumpers had a whale of a good time, waving their signs, jeering at the media, beating up protesters, chanting "Lock her up" -- we elitists just stood and clapped. Nobody chanted "Stronger Together." It just doesn't chant.

    By Brian Stelter November 08, 2016 17:52PM EST Univision executives like to say that the road to the White House runs through the Hispanic community. "This argument will be tested today," Univision's top anchorman Jorge Ramos said Tuesday. Donald Trump defied the argument, declining Ramos's repeated entreaties for an interview, despite the fact that Univision (UVN) is the dominant TV network among Spanish speakers in the United States.(snip) "The only other candidate that didn't want to talk to us was Bob Dole in 1996, and lost," Ramos told CNNMoney. "Regardless of the results, I think Trump will be the last...

    Talking Points Memo ^ | 10/26/2016 | MATT SHUHAM
    During a keynote address Wednesday at the U.S. Chamber Institute's Legal Reform Summit, Mitt Romney made a series of subtle jabs at the Republican nominee on his business platform, in front of a friendly audience used to Republican business orthodoxy. After opening with a familiar refrain—“I get asked on a regular basis, boy, why aren't you running this year. I ask myself that now and then, too"—Romney delivered a speech that seemed to dig at a few of Donald Trump's policy positions without ever mentioning him by name. ... “I don’t think either candidate for president has said they’re going...

    Washington Post ^ | Aug 19, 2016 | David A. Fahrenthold and Alice Crites
    The time had come to fire Khloé Kardashian. But first, Donald Trump had a question. “What’s your charity?” Trump asked. They were filming “The Celebrity Apprentice,” the reality-TV show where Trump schooled the faded and the semi-famous in the arts of advertising, salesmanship and workplace in­fighting. Most weeks, one winner got prize money for charity. One loser got fired. ... “I’m going to give $20,000 to your charity,” Trump said, according to a transcript of that show. He didn’t. After the show aired in 2009, Kardashian’s charity did receive $20,000. But it wasn’t from Trump. Instead, the check came from...

    President Barack Obama sought to reassure millions of immigrants in the U.S. illegally that he has no plans to deport them, while acknowledging that the Supreme Court’s deadlock Thursday marks the end of the road for his push to reform the U.S. immigration system. Though Obama predicted an immigration overhaul is inevitable, he conceded it won’t happen while he’s president due to opposition from the current Congress. Working to lay the groundwork for the next president to pick up the effort, he cast the election in November as a referendum on how the country would treat its immigrants. “We’re going...
  • Mark Levin Joins Tom Donohue and Sells The U.S. Chamber of Commerce Message

    Radio screamer Mark Levin’s approach at selling his nonsense can be captured within the following quote: If you make people think they’re thinking, they’ll love you. If you really make them think, they’ll hate you. ~ Don Marquis Levin’s approach relies on gaslighting an audience into “thinking they’re thinking“. This was never more clear than today when Mark Levin pens an article calling candidate Donald Trump “A Globalist“, and then assembles a word salad of counter-intuitive arguments to prove a ridiculously false assertion.However, there is a profound benefit to seeing Mr. Levin completely remove the mask of his crony-constitutional...

    Accusing Senator Ted Cruz of voter fraud, Donald Trump today argued that Mr. Cruz "stole" the election in Iowa. "That is why all of the polls were so wrong, and why he got far more votes than anticipated," Mr. Trump said on Twitter, suggesting no one predicted that Mr. Cruz would win: Ted Cruz didn't win Iowa, he stole it. That is why all of the polls were so wrong and why he got far more votes than anticipated. Bad!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) February 3, 2016 Mr. Trump then went further, saying Mr. Cruz committed fraud, suggesting that Cruz's...

    A Sarah Palin endorsement of Donald Trump would do more damage to Palin's conservative credentials than it would to Ted Cruz, the candidate's communications director said Tuesday, remarking that he would be "deeply disappointed."Trump has teased a "major announcement" and a "very special guest" at a campaign stop in Ames, Iowa, later in the afternoon, leading to speculation that it could be an endorsement from evangelical leader Jerry Falwell Jr. (whose Liberty University hosted Trump on Monday) or from Palin, the former governor of Alaska and 2008 vice-presidential candidate."I think it'd be a blow to Sarah Palin, because Sarah Palin...

    Politico ^ | 12/23/2015 | By CURT ANDERSON
    I know a televangelist candidate when I see one. To hear the pundits and experts in Washington tell it, the problem with Ted Cruz is that he doesn't play well with others in the Senate, he's too hardheaded and doesn't compromise. In other words, he's exactly what the Republican primary voters want. On this score, I side with the Republican primary voters. If Cruz's problem is that he is a conservative who has no regard for senatorial decorum and fights too hard for the right things, I'm all in. But there is a far bigger problem with Cruz: Donald Trump...

    An influential New Hampshire newspaper wrote a scathing editorial of Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), likening the Republican presidential candidate to Donald Trump and dubbing him "Teddy Trump." The New Hampshire Union Leader, which threw its support behind rival Chris Christie last month, penned an editorial criticizing Cruz's refusal to go negative on the Republican presidential front-runner and accusing him of trying to appeal to Trump supporters in the event the real estate mogul plunges in the race.
