“resistance to change”
the underground movement formed in France during World War II to fight the German occupying forces and the Vichy government.
At this current political time, we are resisting to the craziness that has befallen upon the American nation.
The ‘so-called president’ has no mandate.
He was installed there by a foreign power that happened to be an adversary.
Federalist No. 68 (Federalist Number 68), the sixty-eighth essay of The Federalist Papers, was probably written by Alexander Hamilton and published on March 12, 1788 under the pseudonym Publius – the name under which all The Federalist Papers were published. Since all were written under this one pseudonym, we can never be certain of the authorships.
Entitled “The Mode of Electing the President,” the essay describes Hamilton’s perspective on the process of selecting the Chief Executive of the United States of America. In writing this essay, Hamilton sought to convince the people of New York of the merits of the proposed Constitution.
Federalist Number 68 is the second in a series of eleven essays discussing the powers and limitations of the Executive branch but the only one to describe the method of selecting a president.
~Why a know-nothing ego-maniac has no business on the phone with world leaders~
The president-elect broke with four decades of diplomatic practice by talking on the phone Friday with Taiwanese President Tsai Ing-wen, a breach of protocol that could disrupt U.S.-China ties before the inauguration.
The 10-minute phone call is believed to be the first time that a U.S. president or president-elect and a Taiwanese leader have spoken since the late 1970’s.
The United States formally recognized the government in Beijing as representing China in 1978 and has pursued a “One China” policy since 1972, when then-President Richard M. Nixon visited the country. But although the U.S. government ended official relations with Taiwan in 1979, U.S. presidential administrations have maintained unofficial ties with the island territory, which has become a thriving democracy in recent decades.
Trump’s phone call with Philippines leader deserves a lot more attention
President-elect Donald Trump’s telephone created plenty of news over the weekend – whether it was that “congratulatory” call with Taiwan’s leader, his tweets aimed at China, or even his criticism of SNL.
But there was another bit of news involving Trump’s phone that deserves a lot more attention – his call with Philippine president Rodrigo Duterte.
“In a statement Saturday, Duterte shared details of a seven-minute conversation that took place Friday, December 2. He said that during the call, Trump endorsed his campaign against drug users and dealers – a campaign that has left at least 4,500 Filipinos dead in about five months. Trump told Duterte that he was doing it the ‘right way,’ according to Duterte’s account,” the Washington Post writes.
And Reuters reports that, on that Friday call, Trump invited Duterte to the White House, according to a Philippines official.
Watch Keith Olbermann’s Epic Response To Trump Saying “Millions Voted Illegally” To Steal The Election
Famed sportscaster turned-political pundit Keith Olbermann tore into Donald Trump on today’s episode of the Resistance, slamming Trump for wondering whether the election that he himself won was rigged and into the mainstream media for giving Donald Trump’s absurd conspiracy theories the same coverage they would receive if they were serious concerns.
He also awaits the dexact dimensions of and nature of Mr. Trump’s desperate psychological impairment.” Olbermann rightfully condemned the media for being the “enablers of cataclysm” for their tacit acceptance of Trump’s lies:
This has long since transcended politics, transcended diversions from his corruption, or the FBI, or foreign interference, this is not left vs right, nor liberal vs conservative, nor alt vs inclusive, nor any of the excuses that newspaper and television made Sunday in hopes of preserving the political media complex.
Olbermann is absolutely right.
We must come to terms with this and do something, anything to prevent this unstable megalomaniac from ever tasting true power.
