Trump and White Nationalism...

Rational Nation U S A Purveyor of Truth These peole are, and have been, Trump's strongest supoerters. White nationalist that would make Aldilf Hitler proud. The vidoe below is chilling because it runs against America's finest values. As FDR said during a very dark time in America, we have nothing to fear but fear itself . Our bigest fear in Ameica today ought to be the fear Trumpism will stick and is here to stay. VOX - The so-called “alt-right” is a loose online movement made up mostly, though not entirely, of white nationalists. They’ve gotten famous recently for being some of Donald Trump’s earliest and most vocal backers, seeing him as the first presidential candidate in modern history open to their ideas about the need to protect the white race — by reducing the numbers and influence of African Americans, Hispanics, Muslims, and Jews. At a November 19 conference of the National Policy Institute, a white nationalist “think tank,” the organization’s leader, Richar

Election 2016 Irregularities In Three Swing States...

Rational Nation U S A Purveyor of Truth President elect Donald J. Trump may very well have known what he was talking about with his rigged election scenario. Our country's leaders, as well as the people, should DEMAND a complete and thorough investigation and recount. (CNN) - Hillary Clinton's campaign is being urged by a number of top computer scientists to call for a recount of vote totals in Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania, according to a source with knowledge of the request. The computer scientists believe they have found evidence that vote totals in the three states could have been manipulated or hacked and presented their findings to top Clinton aides on a call last Thursday. The scientists, among them J. Alex Halderman, the director of the University of Michigan Center for Computer Security and Society, told the Clinton campaign they believe there is a questionable trend of Clinton performing worse in counties that relied on electronic voting machines co

Con Man Extraordinaire...

Rationl Nation U S A Purveyor of Truth President elect Donald J. tRump, prhaps America's biggest con man, is surrounding himself with the very folks he railed against during his populist campaign for the presidency. So much for truth, integrity, and the "American Way". As many often warned, and many folks ignored, caveat emptor . Now it's too late. Enjoy the ride. NEW YORK — Christmas has arrived early for Wall Street in the early days of the Donald Trump era. A populist candidate who railed against shady financial interests on the campaign trail is now putting together an administration that looks like an investment banker's dream. Former Goldman Sachs banker Steven Mnuchin has been seen at Trump Tower amid rumors that he’s the leading candidate for Treasury secretary. Billionaire investor Wilbur Ross appears headed to the Commerce Department. Steve Bannon, another Goldman alum, will work steps from the Oval Office. If Mnuchin drops out, as some rumo

Assessing Responsibilty...

Rational Nation U S A Purveyor of Truth ASSOCIATED PRESS Hillary Clinton’s campaign had basic assumptions about key battleground states that turned out painfully wrong. When all is said and done the largest responsibility for the election of tRump the narcissist rests with the Clinton campaign itself. Whether it be arrogance bred of over confidence or a simple lack of energy on the part of the candidate herself is anyone's guess. Regardless of reasons results remain the same and our nation is the biggest loser. WASHINGTON ― In the closing weeks of the presidential campaign, Hillary Clinton’s staff in key Midwest states sent out alarms to their headquarters in Brooklyn. They were facing a problematic shortage of paid canvassers to help turn out the vote. For months, the Clinton campaign had banked on a wide army of volunteer organizers to help corral independents and Democratic leaners and re-energize a base not particularly enthused about the election. But they were
Rational Nation U S A Purveyor of Truth Following is an excerpt from an article in today's Boston Globe . It speaks to the concerns millions upon millions of Americans have following the election of Donald J. Trump to the presidency of the "United States of America". The author, Michael A. Cohen nails it. Between now and Jan. 20, when Donald Trump takes the oath of office as America’s 45th president, many Americans will wish for him to be a successful president. Not me. I don’t want Trump to succeed. I want him to fail spectacularly. I say this not because I don’t accept the outcome of last week’s election or because I don’t recognize him as my president. Trump won fair and square and will be the president for at least the next four years. But make no mistake — success for Trump would be a disaster for America. If his campaign promises are to be taken at face value, his success would mean that tens of millions of Americans may lose health care insurance. It

Deficits and the National Debt Apparently No Longer Important...

Rational Nation U S A Purveyor of Truth Frankly how anyone believed the tRump rhetoric on budgetary and tax matters is a mystery. Yuuuge infrastructure and defense spending, erecting a yuuuge beautiful border wall, and yuuuge tax cuts while braying about fiscal responsibility. Sounds like a repeat of the GWB and BHO years. Giant infrastructure plan, major tax cut on the agenda — and so is a huge increase in the debt. Donald Trump campaigned heartily on a spending splurge and nothing he’s said since his shocking election suggests he will reverse course. | Getty POLITICO - A serious case of fiscal amnesia may soon be sweeping the GOP. For eight years, Republicans hammered President Barack Obama for exploding the national debt. But now a GOP-led spending spree is coming, with Donald Trump riding to the White House on trillion-dollar promises and a Republican Congress that looks likely to do his bidding. It’s a potential echo of the last time Republicans ran Washington, w

It Is Time To Act, HRC Won The Vote Of A Majority Of Americans...

Rational Nation U S A Purveyor of Truth SHE WON THE POPULAR VOTE. There is no reason Trump should be President. On December 19, the Electors of the Electoral College will cast their ballots. If they all vote the way their states voted, Donald Trump will win. However, they can vote for Hillary Clinton if they choose. Even in states where that is not allowed, their vote would still be counted, they would simply pay a small fine - which we can be sure Clinton supporters will be glad to pay! SKIP Mr. Trump is unfit to serve. His scapegoating of so many Americans, and his impulsivity, bullying, lying, admitted history of sexual assault, and utter lack of experience make him a danger to the Republic. Secretary Clinton WON THE POPULAR VOTE and should be President. Click on the post body to read the complete write up an go to the petition. There are already 4,000,000 signatures of patriotic Americans counselling the electors to do the right thing . Please take the time to read

Leslie E. Carpenter Jr, 1932-2016

Rational Nation U S A Purveyor of Truth Leslie E. Carpenter Jr Father, Grandfather and Great Grandfather A man Of many Talents Who Lived His Life Honestly and Lived It With Dignity Until the End  He Did It His Way On Saturday, November 5th at 5:36 PM , I lost my father and best friend. He was 84 years young and as he lay dying he continued to talk about the future as though he might live another 5 or 10 years. Of course he knew he was going to leave this world but true to his word he continued to talk about what he would do tomorrow. That was always my dad's outlook on life, and death. While he understood we would grieve his passing he asked us all to be happy for him as well. He said many times, Whether I live or die I can't lose, for if I live I'm surrounded by a loving family and my many friends, but if I die I will be with the love of my life . He missed my mother terribly and while not religious in the conventional sense he held on to a deep spirituality and

A vike individual who successfully lied to the American people and a large enough segment of the Amerikan people believed him to enable him to secure an EC victory. And so, he was elected to the most powerful job in the world. Think
