President elect Donald Trump has slammed the ongoing effect by detractors on the left to convince the American people that Russia was involved in somehow ‘hacking’ the US election, causing a Trump victory.In a tweet sent out this afternoon, Trump succinctly asked readers to imagine what the media coverage would be like were the tables turned and Clinton had won the election:
Allegations that Russia interfered in the presidential election in a bid to boost Donald Trump’s campaign have roiled Republicans, as prominent GOP lawmakers pursue a bipartisan congressional investigation while President-elect Trump’s team tries to tamp down the controversy and “move on.” Trump told “Fox News Sunday” the CIA’s reported assessment was “ridiculous” and described the claim as another “excuse” pushed by Democrats to explain his upset victory.“Nobody really knows,” he said. “… They have no idea if it’s Russia or China or somebody. It could be somebody sitting in a bed some place.”
A bill meant to help those with developmental disabilities would allow government agencies to locate people with tracking devices, which has some concerned the measure gives the federal government too much authority and power.In 2008, Kevin Curtis Wills, a 9-year-old boy with autism, jumped into a river near a park and drowned. In 2014, a 14-year-old boy with autism, Avonte Oquendo, left his school and drowned in a river.
Infowars reporter Millie Weaver asks people in downtown Colorado Springs their thoughts on efforts to ban “fake news” and infringe on freedom of the press.Most people disagreed on who or what is ‘fake news,’ but agree that censoring or banning ‘fake news’ shouldn’t come at the expense of Americans’ First Amendment rights.
Alex Jones breaks down the reason that Donald Trump has reportedly picked Exxon Mobil CEO Rex Tillerson as secretary of state, passing over both Mitt Romney and Jon Huntsman, who had been on the short list to be America’s top diplomat.Also watch Alex’s response to critics: Alex Jones Responds To Pseudo-Intellectual Liberals
An article by Andrew Blake entitled Infowars’ Alex Jones appeals to Trump for aid over fears of ‘fake news’ crackdown states that Jones, “Claimed the president-elect’s former White House rival Hillary Clinton “personally murdered and chopped up” children during a November broadcast.”However, as even the Washington Post admitted, Jones’ quote was in the context of Hillary’s murderous policies in Libya and Syria, which led to an international migrant crisis and the rise of ISIS, a group that literally chops up children.
While we wait to see if and when the Senate will pass (and president will sign) Bill “H.R. 6393, Intelligence Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2017″, which was passed by the House at the end of November with an overwhelming majority and which seeks to crack down on websites suspected of conducting Russian propaganda and calling for the US government to “counter active measures by Russia to exert covert influence … carried out in coordination with, or at the behest of, political leaders or the security services of the Russian Federation and the role of the Russian Federation has been hidden or not acknowledged publicly,” another, perhaps even more dangerous and limiting to civil rights and freedom of speech bill passed on December 8.
Donald Trump is expected to nominate ExxonMobil CEO Rex Tillerson as his secretary of state, two sources close to the transition process told NBC News on Saturday.The 64-year-old veteran oil executive has no government or diplomatic experience, although he has ties to Russian President Vladimir Putin. The pick would put to rest weeks-long speculation of who would earn the post as the U.S.’s top diplomat, and would place Tillerson fourth in line to the presidency.He will also be paired with former U.N. Ambassador John Bolton as his deputy secretary of state, one of the sources added, with Bolton handling day-to-day management of the department.
Kelly Riddell writes in the Washington Times that “since ‘fake news’ is all the rage within the mainstream media,” she has comprises a Top 10 list of news stories reported on by the mainstream media “that turned out to be, well, fake.” Number 9 on the list is the media’s false reporting that Steve Bannon, former Breitbart Executive Chairman and current chief strategist to Donald Trump, is a “white supremacist.”
David Freedlander writes at Politico that Mayor of the Big Apple, Bill de Blasio, is pitting himself against president-elect and fellow New Yorker Donald J. Trump to infuse some desperately needed energy into his upcoming mayoral contest.NEW YORK—Bill de Blasio, the 6-5 mayor of the nation’s largest city, slipped in almost unnoticed through a side door in the small community center in Chelsea, where a full-throated anti-Donald Trump resistance meeting was already underway.Ten days earlier, Trump had been elected the next president of the United States, and New York City, which voted overwhelmingly against him, was still reeling. But anger was starting to find outlets, and one of them was here, where hundreds gathered for a hastily thrown together meeting billed as “Rise Together: The American Majority Against Trump.”De Blasio’s three years in office so far have been marred by a series of disappointments, missteps, and seeming deafness to the politics of the moment—a track record that had put the mayor at risk of being taken down by his own party in next year’s primary. But since the election, a life raft has suddenly appeared: Trump.
President-elect of the United States of America Donald J. Trump emerged on Saturday as a Commander-in-Chief-in-waiting at the annual Army-Navy football game, unifying the country—and her armed forces—behind his incoming administration.“Yesterday was the first day of Donald Trump’s presidency. It was Reagan-esque in that it grasped the importance of symbolism,” David Urban, a West Point graduate and senior adviser to the president-elect’s campaign whose box Trump sat in for the first half, told Breitbart News. “Donald Trump not only understood the significance of the Army-Navy game and all it stands for in America, but he understands those visual images of him standing with the men and women of the armed services are seen across the world by our friends and enemies alike.”
