Are Americans being subjected to Colour Revolution "Regime Change"????!!

*Anti-Trump Students Demonstrating...* *are these demonstrators being handled by * *Colour Revolution "Regime Changers"?* Okay folks, I've been watching and listening to the newz on the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation...our taxpayer funded neocon propaganda machine. There is non-stop highly inflammatory anti-Trump rhetoric on what passes for the nightly newz, combined with non-stop regurgitation of the street demonstrations going on in the US. It's as if "someone" is trying to get Canadians on board with the refusal of SOME Americans to accept the outcome of the democratic elect... more »

Has It Sunk In Yet?

DownWithTyranny at DownWithTyranny! - 2 hours ago
I'm not a betting man but had I bet, it would have been for Hillary-- and the odds being offered would have been terrible for the bettor-- and I was tempted to buy stocks when I saw them collapsing last night. That would have been a losing bet, too. Dow Futures were down 750 points at one point. But, today, they are trading in a normal range as the uncertainty of what a Trump presidency would bring set in. The Nikkei was off almost 6%. The dollar dropped over 2% against the Euro and the Mexican peso collapsed by over 10%. But by mid-morning the Dow had turned around and was actuall... more »

I voted GREEN. I have been alienated from the Democratic Party's neoliberal and neoconservative alignments, but I never anticipated Hillary Clinton would lose the election. I'm hopeful Trump will de-escalate relations with Russia, but that is the only thing I'm hopeful about. In addition to my concern about his willingness to eliminate financial regulation, I worry that Trump will be only too happy to allow heedless resource extraction and environmental pollution. I worry about the rise in fascistic, xenophobic tendencies in the wake of this overwhelming Trump victory. Will polic... more »

Need Readers' Advice

Kenneth Thomas at Middle Class Political Economist - 4 hours ago
Yesterday, a non-plurality of the voters chose a new President. Just like in 2000, the Electoral College is not going to the candidate with the most votes. As this new President has also shown himself to not share our democratic ideals, I find it difficult to have much respect for him. Indeed, I am considering not calling him by his name, ever. But perhaps I am just reacting out of the immediate shock. Therefore, I am asking you to respond to the poll at the top of the page regarding what I should call him. The choices are: He Who Shall Note Be Named (assuming I get J.K. Rowling's p... more »

“Scanning the skies for galaxies, Canadian astronomer Paul Hickson and colleagues identified some 100 compact groups of galaxies, now appropriately called Hickson Compact Groups. The four prominent galaxies seen in this intriguing telescopic skyscape are one such group, Hickson 44, about 100 million light-years distant toward the constellation Leo. The two spiral galaxies in the center of the image are edge-on NGC 3190 with its distinctive, warped dust lanes, and S-shaped NGC 3187.

Chet Raymo, “Making Peace”

*“Making Peace”* by Chet Raymo "An issue of “Science” (May 18, 2012) was devoted to human conflict. If I can summarize 60 pages of discussion: It's US versus THEM. It seems our long evolutionary history has favored group solidarity. Empathy and cooperation within the group; distrust and aggression toward those outside. The first groups were those of kin, tribes, and then ethnicity. As societies grew, groups identified themselves in more complex ways. Some researches would suggest that religions evolved as group adhesives. WE are moral, beautiful, enlightened, favored by God. THEY a... more »

Hispanic Voters Won The Day For Two Progressive Women In Southern California-- Nanette Barragán And Eloise Reyes

DownWithTyranny at DownWithTyranny! - 5 hours ago
Our last post on Tuesday night was about how Latinos tried but couldn't do it on their own. In two little discussed California races Blue America was active in, though, Latinos, helped progressives beat two truly horrible and corrupt conservatives. Nanette Barragán appears to have come from way behind to beat state Senator Isadore Hall for the congressional seat the Democratic Party Establishment tried to give him. And in an Inland Empire assembly district, it was Latino voters who helped Eloise Reyes oust one of the most conservative (and corrupt) Democrats in the state legislatu... more »

Donald Trump and Bolivia

Carlos at Viva Bolivia - 5 hours ago
Today Donald J. Trump became the 45th President of the United States. There are protests on 5th Avenue and some are turning violent, the Clinton crowd has set fires, blocked traffic for hours, smashed a newspaper office, it is out of control. So I am sure Bolivia is watching the outcome and preparing for a new jefe in los EEUU. The former jefes were not good to Bolivia; Bush treated it with contempt and US spies and diplomats were expelled; Obama did much the same, insisting that Bolivia be treated as a drug dealing haven when in fact Bolivia got rid of lots of drug dealers as it go... more »

Anti Trump Protests Begin After Shock Victory

Protests against Donald Trump have erupted in the United States and around the world following Wednesday’s election. It didn’t take long after Donald Trump was declared the new president of the United States for the protests to begin. Via Daisy Luther: Last week, I predicted that regardless of the outcome, that the aftermath could be ugly.

How does one process the 2016 US Presidential Election? For those that saw Donald Trump for the narcissistic, misogynistic, racist, thin-skinned bully he is, the fact that he is the President of the United States is logic defying. Those that supported Donald Trump were somehow willfully blind to the fact that there is not one single redeeming personality trait or feature to that man. There is no

MA Citizens Offer a Resounding NO to Charter Expansion

Jim Horn at Schools Matter - 7 hours ago
Amazing numbers: Massachusetts voters soundly rejected a controversial measure to expand the number of charter schools in the state on Tuesday. The margin was surprising: The “no” side led 62 percent to 38 percent when the Boston Globe called the race. Polling projected the race would be close, and the fight over Question 2 was costly. Committees backing and opposing the measure spent more than $38.6 million combined, according to state records, making it the most expensive ballot measure campaign in Massachusetts history. . . .

*"Vitae Summa Brevis"* "They are not long, the weeping and the laughter, Love and desire and hate: I think they have no portion in us after We pass the gate. They are not long, the days of wine and roses; Out of a misty dream Our path emerges for a while, then closes Within a dream." - Ernest Dowson “Vitae summa brevis spem nos vetat incohare longam” is a quotation from Horace’s “First Book of Odes”: “The shortness of life prevents us from entertaining far-off hopes.”

*“How Government ‘Works’”, Part 1* by Bill Bonner “There are many theories to explain government. Most are nothing but scams, justifications, and puffery. One tries to put something over on the common man…the other claims it was for his own good…and the third pretends that he’d be lost without it. Most are not really ‘theories’ at all…but prescriptions, blueprints for creating the kind of government the ‘theorist’ would like to have.

*"How Government 'Works', Part 2"* by Bill Bonner "In the case of Egypt, people listened and obeyed- at least, as much as they did- because Pharaoh was, in theory, a god. In the case of Rome- with the exception of Caligula’s claims- and the Mongol empires, the theory was similarly simple, though different. Tamerlane made no claim to divinity. He merely made it clear what he would do to you if you resisted him. Towns that submitted were generally governed passably, according to the standards of the day…and taxed, but not razed to the ground. Those that contested his authority were ... more »

Space and Good Fences Make Good Neighbors -- Good Neighbors Make Limited Government

Charles R. Anderson, Ph.D. at An Objectivist Individualist - 7 hours ago
Once again the overcrowded cities have voted for the more authoritarian Presidential candidate, while the people of "flyover country" and the "Racist South," from the viewpoint of presumptuous Progressive Elitists, have chosen a less authoritarian candidate. This again proves that space and good fences make good neighbors, while overcrowded conditions lead to bossy people who want ever so badly to push their values on other people and to micromanage their lives. Somehow, these "educated" Progressive Elitists always manage to presume that they can manage the lives of people they do... more »

Election of popular vote loser proves necessity of abolishing Electoral College

Kenneth Thomas at Middle Class Political Economist - 7 hours ago
For the second time in just 16 years, the new President is actually the loser of the national popular vote (click on "Popular Vote"). This is the fifth time this has happened in U.S. history; the last time it happened prior to 2000 was in 1888. As children, we were all taught to believe in democracy and majority (or as we later learned, sometimes just plurality) rule. But with the way that rural and low-population states are overrepresented in the Senate and, hence, the Electoral College, the United States has persistent problems in achieving democratic outcomes in presidential elec... more »

German Chancellor Angela Merkel claims that Russia could interfere with Germany’s general elections next year through cyberattacks.

Accusations of Russian involvement in the US presidential race began to surface after Democratic National Committee (DNC) emails were published by WikiLeaks in July this year.

*WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 9, 2016 A fascinating journalistic event:* Did Chris Christie know about the lane closings to the George Washington Bridge? Did he *approve* the lane closings?

Because of the apparent overt stupidity of the plan, we've always found it hard to believe that Christie would have been involved. The plan created gigantic risk in pursuit of a very meager reward. Needless to say, the lane closings have deeply damaged Christie's career, or at least they had before the victor... more »

How the fuck did we get from this... ...to this... ...to this in less than a year and a half? Well, as V said in *V For Vendetta*, "You have only to look in a mirror." As of this moment, Hillary Clinton still leads Donald Trump in the popular vote by over 209,000. Of course, in the United States, it's not the popular vote that counts, which seems to run counter to the idea that we're a democratic republic, but the Electoral College. And the Electoral College, that perennial School of Hard Knocks, tells us that Trump has won the presidency with 279 electoral... more »

Colin Todhunter at EAST BY NORTHWEST - 20 hours ago
Countercurrents, CounterPunch, Global Research, RINF I watched Donald Trump’s presidential victory speech. He spoke a lot about unity, the potential of ordinary, marginalised people and about making the US great again. He spoke about rebuilding the nation’s infrastructure, creating jobs and about finding common ground with other nations. He can be quite charismatic and, taken at face value, quite convincing. His victory was, to a large extent, achieved because many (white) working class folk could identify with much of his rhetoric. After watching his speech, I was immediately remind... more »

Can Hillary Clinton still win this Presidential Election? (Part 2) Keep a watch on Michigan

Not a sheep at Not a sheep - 23 hours ago
It looks as though the late counts in Michigan MAY be turning the result there. Donald Trump's lead is smaller than the uncounted votes and those votes are in Democrat strongholds. It looks like too big a lead but if just a few extra Democrat votes can be found then it might be close enough for a recount and then who knows what chicanery might be tried. You can keep an eye on this at many sites but the New York Times stats are quite fun to watch change http://www.nytimes.com/elections/forecast/president/michigan

What we are learning is that the people generally have freedom of expression except it is limited to your own social environment.

This allows government repression to be localized at worst and targeted against emergent organizations that can be political in nature. Thus the sudden anti religious movement.

Wrong Trump predictions due to omnipresent left-wing liars, propagandists, bullies

Luboš Motl at The Reference Frame - 23 hours ago
Donald Trump has been elected the 45th president of the United States of America. Congratulations! He may have flaws but as far as I can say, he represents a much better direction for the future of America – and the West – than his competitor. His victory – 306 to 232 electoral votes or so (or 30-to-20 states) – is sound and the difference in the popular vote is just 0.2 percentage points in Hillary's favor. And as Ann Coulter has observed, if only people whose grandparents already lived in the U.S. were voting, Trump would have safely won all 50 states in a landslide. *A 20-minu... more »

Edward Snowden demonstrated to his Twitter followers how easy it is to commit election fraud by hacking voting machines used in several crucial swing states.
