... sharp contrasts between advocacy for economic justice and flackery 😈 for de facto oligarchy 👹.



Surveys show that voters are hungry for genuinely progressive policies that have drawn little interest from mainstream media outlets. For instance, polling of the US public shows:

֍ 76 percent support higher taxes on the wealthy.

֍ 70 percent support Medicare for All.

֍ 59 percent support a $15 minimum wage.

֍ 60 percent support expanded tuition-free college.

֍ 69 percent oppose overturning Roe v. Wade.

֍ 65 percent support progressive criminal justice reform.

֍ 59 percent support stricter environmental regulation.

As Florida Races Narrow, Trump And Scott Spread Claims Of Fraud Without Evidence

November 9, 20189:45 AM ET

SNIPPET:

Updated at 11:15 a.m. ET

Days after midterm voting, as ballots are still being counted, Republican 🐉 lawmakers who are holding on to tight leads in midterm states are alleging foul play and voter fraud. The claims were amplified by President Trump 🦀, without evidence, on Friday morning.

"You mean they are just now finding votes in Florida and Georgia — but the Election was on Tuesday?" he wrote in a tweet. "Let's blame the Russians and demand an immediate apology from President Putin!"

Current Florida Gov. Rick Scott , locked in a tight Senate race, said in a news conference Thursday night that "the people of Florida deserve fairness and transparency and the supervisors are failing to give it to us."

"Every Floridian should be concerned there may be rampant voter fraud in Palm Beach and Broward counties," he said. "I will not sit idly by while unethical liberals try to steal this election from the great people of Florida."

Scott's race against Democratic incumbent Sen. Bill Nelson  seems to be headed toward triggering a mandatory recount  ;D. Florida law says any race within a 0.5 percent margin must go to a recount, and as of 9 a.m. Friday, Nelson trailed Scott by 0.18 percent.

Previous claims of widespread voter fraud, including Trump's claim that millions of people voted illegally in 2016, are considered false by voting experts. One investigation, published in 2014, found 31 possible cases of in-person voter fraud out of more than 1 billion ballots cast over a 14-year period.

Given Whitaker's public and well-documented hostility towards the Mueller investigation, he should immediately recuse himself from overseeing the investigation, but given how unlikely that is to occur, Congress MUST step up to protect Mueller and allow the investigation to proceed without interference from Trump.

There's currently a bipartisan bill in Congress, the Special Counsel Independence and Integrity Act, that would ensure that Special Counsel Robert Mueller would be able to conduct his investigation independently and beyond the reach of President Trump. This bill would establish a much-needed firewall between the Trump Administration and the special counsel's office.

Add your name to the growing calls on Congress to pass the bill that would protect Mueller>>

SNIPPET:

The period of time between right now and January 3 may be, mark my words, the strangest and most dangerous passage this nation has crossed in decades. 👀

Why? Because before Tuesday, Trump only suspected someone might come along with a big enough stick to do him actual damage. Now, he knows they’re coming for sure, and if Wednesday’s presser was any indication, he is not taking the new order of things in stride.

Trump 🦀-Russia🦕 puppet Dana Rohrabacher 🐒 has been bounced from Congress. Now he’s in REAL trouble. 😀

Bill Palmer | 7:07 pm EST November 11, 2018

Palmer Report » Analysis

Republican Congressman Dana Rohrabacher, best known for being such a blatant puppet of the Kremlin that a House GOP leader once famously accused him of being on Vladimir Putin’s payroll, has been bounced from Congress. It took several days, but Democratic challenger Harley Rouda 👍 😎 has pulled far enough ahead in the tight race that major news outlets are finally calling it for him. But this is just the beginning of Rohrabacher’s troubles.

Back when the indictment of alleged Russian spy Maria Butina was released, it quickly became clear that Dana Rohrabacher was the Congressman who allegedly met with her during the 2016 election cycle. This led Rohrabacher to go ahead and admit that he did indeed have dinner with her, while saying that he’s not sure if he’s the Congressman referenced in the Butina indictment. That means it’s him, or he’d have denied it.

So this confirms that Special Counsel Robert Mueller, or at least his prosecutorial partners, have indeed been investigating the real reason for Rohrabacher’s open allegiance to the Kremlin all these years in general, and his role in the Trump-Russia election scandal in particular. Is it possible that Rohrabacher is simply a Kremlin puppet because he happens be in love with Russia for innocent if insane reasons? Maybe.

But if it turns out there’s a more substantive reason Dana Rohrabacher has been this far up Vladimir Putin’s butt all this time, prosecutors are going to find it – and let’s just say that if they end up indicting and prosecuting him, it’ll be made easier by the fact that he’s no longer going to be a sitting Congressman. After all, he can’t hide behind the office. For that matter, the Republican leadership will have no strategic reason to try to protect him.

Rick Scott spirals out of control as the Florida elections start to slip away from him 

Bill Palmer | 8:32 pm EST November 11, 2018

Palmer Report » Analysis

The 2018 races for Governor and Senator in Florida have turned out to be as suspiciously stacked in the Republicans’ favor as the 2106 race for President was in Florida, and the most obvious commonality is that Rick Scott has been the Governor overseeing all of the above rig-jobs. Scott also happens to be the GOP candidate in the 2018 Senate in question. Not shockingly, he’s done everything he could to try to prevent all the votes from being counted – but his efforts are starting to slip away from him, and he knows it.

Rick Scott is a career criminal who used his position as a health care CEO to defraud Medicare, before using his position as Governor to steal the pensions of teachers and other public servants in Florida. So no one is surprised that he keeps finding himself at the center of the Republican Party’s election rigging scandals; he’s the kind of crook who’s tailor made for the modern GOP.

True to form, Rick Scott has been trying to prevent a legitimate vote count from happening in Florida this week. First he falsely accused Democrat-heavy Broward County of voter fraud, and sent in the Florida Department of Law Enforcement to investigate. But that failed when the FDLE quickly concluded that there was no fraud in the county. So now Scott is spiraling out of control.

So far this evening Rick Scott has filed three bogus lawsuits aimed at preventing the votes from being properly counted. He’s trying to have the voting machines and ballots impounded in the midst of being counted, presumably so his henchmen can screw with the results. And, even though his own FDLE officials have confirmed that there was no voter fraud on the part of Democrats, he’s still using the word “fraud” in interviews.

Rick Scott is now dangerously close to felony election tampering. He’s always been something of a cautious criminal throughout his life, which is why he’s never been brought to justice. But as his desperation mounts to rig his own Senate election and he spirals further out of control in an effort to salvage his rig-job, perhaps he’ll screw up in the kind of fashion that might finally bring him to justice for his crimes.

I have said over and over and over...Scott stole medicare from the elderly..Why would ANYONE think he wouldn’t steal votes.   I believe there is malware in there.   We were warned about this…….I don’t believe he actually won Florida twice.  This is fascism at it’s peak.  He took over the hospitals...cut the healthcare… robbed Floridians and has drained us dry and wants to move to the national level.  Brenda Snipes is a Bush apointee….Has Scott turned on a Bush?  He also did not have a blind trust..

Before we had Trump’s swarm of bloodsucking lobbyists gutting government regulations from within, we had Cheney’s. Before Trump brazenly used the White House to boost his brand, we had Cheney wallowing in emoluments: He let his energy industry pals shape energy policy; he pushed to invade Iraq, giving no-bid contracts to his former employer, Halliburton, and helping his Big Oil cronies reap the spoils in Iraq.

Agelbert NOTE: The NYT asks the WRONG QUESTION. Trump is HERE NOW. Yeah, Trump would not be HERE without Cheney 🦖 (AND Obama 🐩), but the M.I.C. that put Cheney there is STILL HERE.  

The M.I.C. (i.e the DEEP STATE) PUT Cheney. Obama AND Trump (and ALL Presidents since WWII) IN POWER!

The M.I.C. IS THE PROBLEM, of which Trump 🦀 is currently just one of its Capitalist Profit Over People and Planet Biosphere destroying symptoms 😈👹🐉🦕🦖💵🎩🍌🏴‍☠️.

The NYT, a CREATURE OF THE M.I.C., is engaging in an attempt to DISTRACT we-the-people from the REAL PROBLEM. The article says many truths, YET refuses to connect ALL the dots that lead straight to the 'MIGHT EQUALS RIGHT' Social Darwinst RELIGION of the Wall Street 'GREED IS GOOD', biosphere math challenged evil bastards.
