Trump refuses to release visitor logs to the Whitehouse and yes I am, sure you may have already guess it, yep there is a tweet that proves he is a hypocrite flip flopper.


Why is @BarackObama spending millions to try and hide his records? He is the least transparent President--ever--and he ran on transparency.

Racism motivated Trump voters more than authoritarianism or income inequality
By Thomas Wood April 17 at 6:00 AM

During the 2016 presidential campaign, many observers wondered exactly what motivated voters most: Was it income? Authoritarianism? Racial attitudes?

Let the analyses begin. Last week, the widely respected 2016 American National Election Study was released, sending political scientists into a flurry of data modeling and chart making.

The ANES has been conducted since 1948, at first through in-person surveys, and now also online, with about 1,200 nationally representative respondents answering some questions for about 80 minutes. This incredibly rich, publicly funded data source allows us to put elections into historical perspective, examining how much each factor affected the vote in 2016 compared with other recent elections...


...Since 1988, we’ve never seen such a clear correspondence between vote choice and racial perceptions. The biggest movement was among those who voted for the Democrat, who were far less likely to agree with attitudes coded as more racially biased.
So which of these had the biggest influence?

Finally, the statistical tool of regression can tease apart which had more influence on the 2016 vote: authoritarianism or symbolic racism, after controlling for education, race, ideology, and age. Moving from the 50th to the 75th percentile in the authoritarian scale made someone about 3 percent more likely to vote for Trump. The same jump on the SRS scale made someone 20 percent more likely to vote for Trump.

Racial attitudes made a bigger difference in electing Trump than authoritarianism.

LOLTrump- The truth is a painful thing, for some, but it's the truth none the less.
Of course, you are spot on, it took me less than 5 minutes to find THIS article.........

When Trump says, “Make America Great Again,” his followers understand he is really saying, “Make America White Again.”
Standing outside a just-concluded Donald Trump rally in Everett, Washington on August 30, Chuck and Denise, a middle-aged couple from Tacoma, said on the inside, “There was every nationality, every age range, young, old, Black, white.”

RELATED:
Donald Trump is Offering US Trickle-Down Revenge

Chuck explained why they backed Trump “We’re old-fashioned. We need law and order back. Trump says he’s going to build the wall. The flies come in. The mosquitoes come in.”

I exchanged glances with my companion, Alexander Reid Ross, a journalist who studies the right.

Denise chimed in about Syrian Refugees. It’s a “huge” issue, she said. “It bothers me we are letting in 200,000 refugees. We have no idea what they’re doing. They are probably affiliated with ISIS. They were raised to hate us.” (By September 2016, 12,391 Syrian refugees had been resettled in the United States in the prior year.)

Chuck chimed in, “We’re opposed to Islam.” Alexander asked if they were Christian. They said yes, explaining they were non-denominational. Denise walked back their response, saying, “We’re opposed to radical Islam, the militants.”

Chuck was worried about coming to the rally. “We didn’t know about Black Lives Matter, if they would have guns.”

Denise complained about “Billboards we can’t read.” She said they welcomed Hispanics in their neighborhood, “But don’t try to twist it around and make it look like Mexico.”

Chuck was exasperated because he couldn’t express his opinion. “We’re the furthest thing from racist, but you end up looking like the biggest racist on the block.”


Inside the rally the 10,000-person capacity arena was two-thirds full and well over 99 percent white. Trump said slowly to cheers, “We’re going to take back the White House.” It was a play on “Take back America,” the Tea Party movement’s rallying cry of aggrieved whites.

Trump continued, “We will rebuild our inner cities and provide safety and peace to all of our citizens. American values and culture will be cherished and celebrated once again.”

John, 24, a waiter from Bend, Oregon, which has a Black population of .5 percent, said before the rally he didn’t like Trump because the media “painted him as racist and sexist.” After seeing him, John said, “It’s the opposite. I have a lot more respect for him. He has empathy. He talked about African-American children and inner cities.”

Blake Von Mittman, 21, a proud nationalist and member of the white supremacist Alt-Right, said, “I want prosperity for all the races in this country. We are cradling Blacks and minorities like they are daisies. The media should unify all the races.” He doesn’t mind people celebrating their culture, but, “They should celebrate privately, and not make it a national holiday like Black History Month or quinceañeras. It’s disgusting.”

He said of Nigel Farage, the ethno-nationalist leader of the the U.K. Independence Party, “He represents a more revolutionary-type mindset in the best possible way.” Von Mittman added, “I’ve never been a racist. I love all the races. Illegal immigration is a plague.”

Across the country, Trump fans express similar ideas in their own words. After 18 months of an extraordinarily bitter, divisive, and even traumatic election, it seems there is nothing new to say. But the media have missed entirely the essence of what Trump represents and why he has attracted such an intense following.

Trumpism boils down to one idea: ethnic cleansing. When he says, “Make America Great Again,” his followers understand he is really saying, “Make America White Again.”

While much of Trump’s platform is an ad hoc stream of viciousness, his core ideas involve eliminating entire groups from the public sphere. Millions would be physically removed. “Illegals” and Mexicans will be sent packing (the two are interchangeable in the minds of many supporters). He wants to shut off Muslim immigration through “extreme vetting;” Muslims here should be forced to register with the government and some mosques shut down.

His website is even more radical.

He has mentioned reducing immigration to “moderate historical averages,” which could only be accomplished by terminating immigration for decades or booting out 27 million immigrants. Now he says he would “suspend the issuance of visas to any place where adequate screening cannot occur, until proven and effective vetting mechanisms can be put into place.” This wording is so broad — no country can prove its screening is 100 percent effective — that Trump might be able to impose the type of severe controls under the 1924 National Origins Act that banned nearly all immigration from non-European countries. (Ironically, Mexicans were allowed in because they could be exploited as cheap labor, while bans on Asian immigration began in 1882 with the Chinese Exclusion Act.)

RELATED:
The KKK Endorses Donald Trump

Trump’s followers are clearly motivated by class and racial resentments, just as race and class are inseparable in the American experience. At a Trump rally last spring in Eugene, Oregon, the reasons his supporters cite for deporting 11 million immigrants involve jobs or taxes ? but it’s always stated in racial and nationalist terms. To Trump and his supporters, undocumented immigrants are parasites and responsible for major economic and social problems, not the “1 percent.”

Now, as for myself, I remain steadfast in my belief that not ALL Trump supporters are racist, but are SOME of them?
Oh, yes!

Ok, well that is all the world needed to her.

Dee took meals to people who didn't need them, clearly the program needs to be scrapped because they are all just lazy rich people.

deetristate- I am going to repeat something I have said before and trust that you won't hit me where I live, because this matters to me. I get emotional about it and I don't care who knows it........
My grand mother, when she went blind, was not able to care for herself like she had been.
One of the hardest things I EVER had to do was move out and leave her there without me.
I was able to come by as often as I could, considering at the time I had a husband and children to care for.
I signed her up for meals on wheels to help her.
I assure you, she was not rich and taking advantage.
They came by every day and brought her food, so that I didn't have to worry, as much.
They called me if she needed anything, or if she didn't answer the door.
I made many a trip from my home to hers when they did call.
It is utterly disgraceful for Trump to even CONSIDER ending this program.
We have two fates in this life, get old or die. (well, we all are going to die, regardless, but surely you get my point)
Hopefully, you and I will be old one day and you REALLY need to think long and hard about supporting a president who would do something so awful as to do away with a program that helps the elderly!
(btw-For the people here who love to get REALLY low and dirty, not you Dee, I've never seen you go after people in that way, my brother was there when he got off work, so she wasn't completely alone.)

Trump cancelling the meals on wheels program was fake news and got debunked a month ago. All he did was cancel some funding that they found was in a nutshell not being used for what it was intended for. As usual the left wing nutters lied about it in the media, not long after they picked themselves up off the fainting couch of course.

congupnarod- From an article, available if you care to look, so that you actually know what you are talking about........

"Once again the Trump administration is threatening to defund a federally-funded program that benefits those in need. First they targeted Planned Parenthood (whose outcome is still unclear), and now POTUS is going after Meals on Wheels, a national program that provides food to underprivileged senior citizens and Army veterans, reports Fusion.

READ: What Is The Future Of Reproductive Rights Under Trump’s Administration?

The defunding of the national assistance program stems from Trump’s proposed budget cut. According to the New York Times, POTUS is aiming to cut the Department of Housing and Urban Development’s $3 billion Community Development Block Grant program. Not only would this affect Meals on Wheels, but also a program that helps low income seniors find employment—among other programs. The block grant derives from 3-30 percent of the funds being used in about 5,000 Meals on Wheels chapters, but the White House has vouched to eliminate the grant in its entirety."

Btw- I don't own a fainting couch, mines just a regular couch, but I suppose I COULD faint on it, if any Trump supporter's here ever actually had anything intelligent to say.
I don't think I need to worry.

Ah look, John is attempting to tell people they are uniformed, and he even went full caps, so he really must mean it.

The irony being, John couldn't back up one single thing he has ever claimed.

Also should be noted that John hates the blue collar workers of the USA, as he thinks there should be no labor laws to protect them and sides with judges with kiss corporations azzes.

So standup and own it John, you hate hard workers and stand beside corporations that attempt to take advantage of them.

Pretty sad john pretty sad, and I can only assume that is why you needed to take that picture of the kid you had on your profile as the family was embarrassed to have her seen with such a traitor.

Step away from the liberal BS and really understand these budget matters because you are clueless along with the others who think people are going to lose their ability to have their needs met as before. You are typical Lol when you rant about things you know ZILCH about.

"president donald j trump spoke today with President Recep Tayyip Erdogan of Turkey to congratulate him
on his recent referendum victory. . ."

and why would trump and family support despots, dictators and autocracy everywhere?

Ivanka Trump @IvankaTrump

Thank you Prime Minister Erdogan for joining us yesterday to celebrate the launch of #TrumpTowers
Istanbul!

and keeping with more fu*ked up crap;

* chuck, thanks for mentioning "UNINFORMED"

"trump also made two references in the interview to "this gentleman" in North Korea, who he said had
"outplayed" both Presidents Bill Clinton and Barack Obama. The late North Korean ruler Kim Jong II died
in 2011. His son, Kim Jong Un, is the country's current ruler.

"But, you know, they've been talking with this gentleman for a long time," Trump said.
"You read Clinton's book, he said, "Oh, we made such a great peace deal," and it was a joke. You
look at different things over the years with President Obama. Everybody has been outplayed, they've
all been outplayed by this gentleman. And we'll see what happens. But I just don't telegraph my moves."

First the actual facts on Wheels on Meals:
https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/politics/2017/03/18/meal-on-wheels-trump-budget-proposal-cuts/99308928/

Second, most people have no idea how much debt the government currently has..and how quickly it is increasing... it is getting close to one trillion a year in deficits, and how little money to pay for domestic programs.

That is why Trumps Tax Cut is dead on arrival.... Why his infrastructure program will never be passed. The Tax Cut would greatly exacerbate the problems we have and there is no money for the infrastructure program.

The only cuts that will really make a difference are the cuts to the military...by halving its budget...never happen with lobbyists and Congress being sell-outs....or the entitlements...which they are going to cut sooner or later....despite the fact they are not really entitlements, but things we paid for and earned our entire working lives.

The other possibility is revamping the health care system.... A one payer system would be far cheaper and save the government far more money than our current system....but its never going to happen either.... not with lobbyists in the mix. Only when the health care system finally buckles under its own weight will something...hopefully be done. Or it will finally be a pay as you go system.... for those who can afford it.... and health care providers of the future will be getting far less compensation for their services than they are now getting.

So in the end... the deficit will continue growing and they will continue cutting wherever they can...eventually there will be few Federally supported domestic programs...everything will be left to the already bankrupt States to handle. The military will be left with the brunt of Federal Revenue and SS and Medicare will be cut drastically.

And to top it all off... the Mother of all financial Crises will soon hit us. Perhaps there will be money to be made in those who can help the rest of us deal with climate change and rising sea water.

Things are not looking good folks. Trump right now is the least of our problems...unless of course he gets us in a nuclear war, which is a distinct possibility.

Justice Gorsuch, exactly the person I wanted on the bench, looks like one or two more new Justices in the next few years.


I know John, as you are juts like him, a shill for corporate America and you hate blue collar workers, this is not new.




Keeping corrupt Hillary and the democrats out of the WH was what I was hoping for to achieve this.


Yes because the guy who got caught running a fake school is clearly a stand up guy.

I would ask you to point out what corruption you are talking about but the fact that tRump is currently under an FBI investigation shows that maybe this whole mess is a bit beyond your mental capacity, so please confirm you are too simple to actually point out anything.
