Mike Huckabee: What would happen if the electoral college ceased to exist? 🤔

Friend,
What if your vote didn’t count in the next presidential election?
Every Democrat running for president, and some Republicans, believe that we should get rid of the electoral college. However, there’s a reason why our Founding Fathers created a representative republic, instead of a pure democracy.
So before you say - let’s kill the electoral college, let’s understand why we have one!
Our Founding Fathers feared a tyranny of the majority, a nation where only a few voices would be heard. Therefore, they created three equal branches of government: legislative, executive, and judicial. This system, paired with a set of checks and balances, created a fair basis for voting in every state. It is based on each state’s population and congressional representation.
Without the electoral college, votes would be based on the results of larger states with larger populations. If you lived in a small state, you would be voiceless and voteless. Furthermore, presidential candidates would solely focus on winning the vote of popular states such as California, New York, Florida, and Texas.
This excludes most of America.
Keeping the electoral college in place means that ALL of America matters in the election of a president.
So when people ask to get rid of the electoral college, ask yourself this: What other protections written in the constitution do they want to remove?
Then stand your ground, and say NO!

1600 Daily: Ivanka Trump visits the factory floor in Charlotte

Ivanka Trump visits the factory floor in Charlotte


Advisor to the President Ivanka Trump and Secretary of Commerce Wilbur Ross hosted the second meeting of the American Workforce Policy Advisory Board today in Charlotte, North Carolina. While visiting a Siemens USA manufacturing plant, Ms. Trump paid a visit to the factory floor.

🎬 Watch: Ivanka Trump talks with a member of Siemens’ apprenticeship program

“When I told my parents I was looking into this, at first they were kind of skeptical because they think of manufacturing as dirty, dingy, really dark,” said Chad Robinson, a participant in Siemens USA’s apprenticeship program. “And then they came here.”

The reality is that modern manufacturing is a source of good-paying, high-quality work for millions of Americans. Today, there are more than 500,000 open jobs in the manufacturing sector, according to National Association of Manufacturers President Jay Timmons. In 10 years, that figure could reach 2.4 million openings. Our great workers need the skills and training to match these opportunities.

Rather than give up on the idea of America as a global manufacturing powerhouse, President Donald J. Trump doubled down on making that vision a reality. Last summer, he launched the Pledge to America’s Workers, which challenges companies to expand programs to educate, train, and reskill workers from high-school age up to near-retirement.

Ivanka Trump has led the charge, crisscrossing the United States and securing commitments from small, medium-sized, and multinational companies from coast to coast. The total number of new opportunities created as part of the Pledge to America’s Workers is more than 9 million.

“The U.S. is the best place in the world for people to locate,” Secretary Ross said today about the growing American manufacturing sector. “The job now is more design, more quality control, more sophisticated work than it had been. So it’s not that there’s less work; it’s just a different kind of work and work that requires a bit more training.”

The return of manufacturing reflects a broader turnaround in the U.S. jobs climate under President Trump. As of May, America’s 3.6 percent unemployment rate matches its lowest level since 1969—and is the 15th straight month with unemployment at or below 4 percent. The economy has added more than 5.8 million jobs since President Trump’s election.

West Wing Reads: President Trump Could Revolutionize the Private Health Insurance Market

President Trump Could Revolutionize the Private Health Insurance Market


“For decades, economists and health-care experts have warned about flawed incentives and rising costs in America’s system for employer-sponsored health insurance. That system, through which more than 150 million Americans get their coverage, has proved difficult to reform — until now,” healthcare expert Avik Roy writes in The Washington Post.

“Last week, the White House finalized a rule that allows employers to fund health reimbursement arrangements (HRAs) that can be used by workers to buy their own coverage on the individual market . . .  Some in Washington want to take health insurance choices away from workers and replace them with the diktats of politicians. The Trump initiative moves in the opposite direction, placing health- care choices right where they have always belonged: in the hands of hard-working Americans.”

Advisor to the President Ivanka Trump and Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross are in Charlotte today for an American Workforce Policy Advisory Board meeting. “The American Workforce Policy Advisory Board was created last year by executive order ‘to encourage the private sector and educational institutions to combat the skills crisis by investing in and increasing demand-driven education,’” Brian Murphy writes in The Charlotte Observer.
“USMCA improves virtually every component of the old NAFTA, and Florida’s agriculture industry stands to gain significantly,” Secretary of Agriculture Sonny Perdue writes in the Tallahassee Democrat. “Certain folks have been saying USMCA will not protect Florida farmers from cheap Mexican fruits and vegetables. They neglect to mention farmers already face such competition under NAFTA. And they overlook the ways the administration is fighting for a level playing field.”
“Lockheed Martin said Monday that [they] will spend $142 million and hire 326 new workers over the next few years as it expands its southern Arkansas facility,” Andrew DeMillo reports for The Associated Press. “The Maryland-based company announced the expansion of its plant in Camden, about 85 miles (140 kilometers) southwest of Little Rock. The facility currently employs about 700 workers.”
“U.S. Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross credited the Trump administration’s ‘America-first economic policies’ for new jobs and low unemployment rates across the country, including Virginia,” Amy Friedenberger writes in The Roanoke Times. The U.S. unemployment rate is currently 3.6 percent—the lowest in nearly 50 years—and Virginia’s has dipped even lower to 2.9 percent.

1600 Daily: 11 million Americans are about to get more freedom in their healthcare

11 million Americans are about to get more freedom in their healthcare


There are two big ways Washington can affect healthcare for Americans. The first is by working to expand the range of affordable, high-quality options available in every community. The second is by purposefully eliminating these options in order to drive more people toward centralized, government-run healthcare schemes.

Here’s an example: Health Reimbursement Arrangements, or HRAs, allow workers to shop for a health insurance plan that’s right for them and their families. The previous administration imposed crushing fines and penalties on HRAs to prevent employees from selecting the plan of their choice. “It was impossible,” President Trump said.
  On Friday, President Trump announced that HRAs will now receive the same tax treatment as other employer-provided health plans. The move is crucial for America’s small businesses: It’s estimated that 90 percent of the businesses that will take advantage of HRAs have fewer than 20 employees.

“The Obama administration had made it illegal for our business to help employees with their health insurance costs,” Maryland small business owner Tom Kunkel said at the White House on Friday. “After the Obama ruling we had to stop all reimbursements . . . which caused a great bit of hardship for our employees.”

Now, his business and others can help defray healthcare costs for employees again.

The Trump Administration expects that 800,000 employers will offer these new HRAs to more than 11 million employees and family members once employers fully adjust to the rule. As a result, some 800,000 Americans who would otherwise be uninsured are projected to gain coverage.

President Trump takes another step toward improving American health insurance.

Watch: “We have to reject” the socialist model of healthcare, the President says

Last week, Vice President Mike Pence traveled to Yellowstone National Park in Montana, where he addressed the aging infrastructure of America’s parks.

“I wanted to make sure that all of you who make Yellowstone National Park work every day know that, in this administration, in this White House, you have a President who is committed to conservation,” the Vice President said with Old Faithful in the background.

In 1872, Yellowstone was established as America’s first national park. In doing so, President Ulysses Grant said that the land should be set apart “for the benefit and [the] enjoyment of the people.” Today, more than 4 million people visit Yellowstone each year.

To protect this legacy for future generations, President Trump has marked nearly $3 billion of his 2020 budget for our National Park Service. The Administration is also introducing an innovative approach to conservation called the Public Lands Infrastructure Fund, under which half of all revenues from leases on public lands will go directly to improving the infrastructure needs of our parks.

“To every American that might be looking on from afar, we simply say: America has the best national parks in the world,” the Vice President said.

Bahrain Workshop on Palestinian Economy is the Opportunity of a Generation


“This is exciting -- an opportunity of a generation. We are grateful to the Kingdom of Bahrain for extending the invitation to [the Trump Administration] to host the June 25 and 26 workshop with them for the benefit of Palestinians and others in the region, offering us a unique opportunity to communicate our economic vision,” White House Special Representative for International Negotiations Jason Greenblatt writes in CNN.

“This workshop will facilitate discussions on an ambitious, achievable vision and framework for a prosperous future for Palestinians . . . President Trump is informed by previous attempts at peace but not encumbered by them. He is seeking a realistic resolution and a brighter future for all those burdened with this conflict.”

“The Trump administration is doing just about everything it can to slow the flood of undocumented Mexicans and Central Americans coming to the U.S. and claiming asylum. But alleviating our growing border crisis is impossible unless Congress changes our immigration laws,” the Washington Examiner editorial board writes. “It is certainly true that most Democrats are at best muddled on the immigration question and at worst fully in favor of opening the southern border to anyone who wants to come into the country. But the party of the Left cannot deny that we have a crisis at the southern border.”
“Some Border Patrol agents in Texas are concerned about exposure to Ebola by a migrant fleeing the Democratic Republic of the Congo for the United States. But more of them are worried about other illnesses frequently popping up among detainees at stations across the southern border,” Anna Giaritelli reports for the Washington Examiner. “Border Patrol’s holding facilities in the Del Rio and El Paso sectors, or regions, are inundated with sick detainees, as well as sick agents.”
“U.S. factory production bounced back in May after a four-month slump while the growth of industrial output in China fell to its slowest pace since 2002,” John Carney reports for Breitbart. “U.S. tariffs are taking a toll on the world’s second-largest economy. The U.S. factory data is an important sign that the U.S. manufacturing sector is more resilient to trade stress than many economists had forecast.”
“Now [President Trump] is the namesake of a tiny Israeli settlement in the Israel-controlled Golan Heights,” Ilan Ben Zion writes in The Associated Press. “Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s Cabinet convened in this hamlet Sunday to inaugurate a new settlement named after President Donald Trump in a gesture of appreciation for the U.S. leader’s recognition of Israeli sovereignty over the territory.”

m o d e r n i t y - Based Gays Speak Out Against Pride Parades - Vermont to Allow Taxpayer-Funded Transgender Sex Reassignment Surgeries for Children



butlerson
Sadly, you are totally correct. I am a 72 year old gay man who spent decades working so that we could have fair and equal rights under the law, which we do have now, but I am so depressed by the decadence and debauchery that has taken over.

These people who are out in these so-called Pride parades, which don't create any pride in me at all, just shame, and the people who run these so-called gay community organizations, are not elected by anybody. They don't represent anyone but themselves and a small group of activists. They are part of the same corrupt and evil cabal that has taken over Western civilization and are trying to destroy it.. They do us so much more harm than any of the crazed bigots before them.

None of my lesbian and gay friends or anything like these people. You would not be able to pick them out of a crowd. They work, contribute to society, abide by the laws, they just want to be happy and have friends and a home like anyone else.

And as far as President Trump goes, after years of me blindly voting for Democrats, I finally woke up and walked away in 2016. I have never been more excited nor happy to vote for anyone as I was for voting for Donald Trump.

Persian Gulf Tanker Attack: Iran Guilty? False Flag? Cui Bono? (Liberty Report) - BREAKING NEWS: Likely FALSE FLAG Attack in Gulf of Oman vs Oil Tankers

Just as the prime minister of Japan was in an historic visit to Iran (the first since the 1979 revolution), a Japanese-owned tanker (and one other) was attacked in the Persian Gulf. US neocons are pointing the finger at Iran. Does it make sense to attack Japan in the midst of productive talks? Will the propaganda machine ramp up war talk?



[Posted at the SpookyWeather blog, June 14th, 2019.]

Likely FALSE FLAG Attack in Gulf of Oman vs Oil Tankers (one of which has sunk apparently?) to be blamed on Iran.

This is gonna lead to strikes against Iranian assets, and/or cause a huge up tick in the oil price (as things may escalate), and (as pointed out previously in a shared article) a high oil price may crash oil based derivatives products in the financial sector leading to another GFC (or worse). Get ready for thick and fast accusations flying without EVIDENCE, like the WMD claims. Iran is a target country for Gulf State Nations, Israel and the USA. Here's the first report on the incident - see below - the previous oil tanker attacks this year were too lame to generate a reaction.

Question: Is the Iranian Government so stupid that they would go and sink these oil tankers knowing the consequences? Go ahead and share this warning if you wish, and/or stay tuned.

One thing that is likely to happen, and that is Russia and China will step in to back Iran to stop any prolonged military actions taken against the country. In the meantime financial markets around the world are likely to be shocked. Everything here depends on the reaction of the USA/West to this event. If it is a measured response, then things will chug along much as before. If not, then trouble of some sort is ahead. Story follows: 

Oil tankers on fire after 'torpedo' attack in Gulf of Oman

Taiwan's state oil refiner CPC Corp said one of them, the Front Altair, was "suspected of being hit by a torpedo".

Maritime intelligence firm Dryad Global said it was "on fire and adrift".


The fire was caused by an explosion, International Tanker Management, which operates the vessel said.

Oil tanker association Intertanko confirmed the ships had been attacked, and expressed concerns about crew safety.

"Following two attacks on member vessels this morning, I am extremely worried about the safety of our crews going through the Strait of Hormuz," Intertanko chairman Paolo dAmico said.

The Gulf of Oman leads into the Strait of Hormuz.

Mr dAmico added that "some 30% of the world's (seaborne) crude oil passes through the Straits.

"If the waters are becoming unsafe, the supply to the entire western world could be at risk."

All major Gulf stock markets dropped following the news, and oil prices rose by about 4%.

Iran's Islamic Republic News Agency (IRNA) reported that the Front Altair had sunk.

But Norwegian shipping firm Frontline said it was still afloat.

"The vessel hasn't sunk," company spokesman Pat Adamson said. "There are pictures from a salvage vessel that is circling the ship."

The other tanker - Kokuka Courageous - was attacked twice in three hours, the president of Japanese owner Kokuka Sangyo told reporters, and breached above the waterline, igniting a fire in an engine room.

This latest incident follows allegations from the US that Iran used mines to attack four oil tankers off the Emirati port of Fujairah last month. Iran has denied being involved

DENVER ELECTS OPENLY COMMUNIST RADICAL

THE AMERICAN MIRROR:


Candi CdeBaca won a runoff race last week against former Denver city council president Albus Brooks, and she did it by promising to implement communist policies “by any means necessary.”
CdeBaca was among three candidates that unseated incumbents in the Tuesday runoff, preliminary results show, and she’s already drawing comparisons to Socialist Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the 29-year-old who unseated 10-term incumbent Joe Crowley in New York’s 14th congressional district in 2018.
“It’s historic,” said Carlos Valverde, state director for Colorado Working Families, a political activist group that supported CdeBaca. “It is in the vein of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. … A victory that really demonstrates people power over money power.”
CdeBaca defeated Brooks 52.4 percent to 47.6 percent, though military and overseas ballots are still being counted.

Bill de Blasio pushes for ‘driver’s licenses for all’

BREITBART:

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio is calling for New Yorkers to support a measure that would allow illegal immigrants to acquire a driver’s license, making the desperate plea in a video posted to Twitter on Thursday.
On Wednesday, the Democrat-led New York State House passed a bill– dubbed the “Green Light” bill– which would allow illegal immigrants in the state to acquire a driver’s license. It passed with overwhelming support– 86 to 47. The bill is expected to struggle in the state Senate, with many concerned over the potential for abuse. Voter fraud is among those concerns.
“There are certain safety concerns that have been raised by law enforcement agencies about how an ID can be used,” New York State Sen. Todd Kaminsky said, according to the New York Post.
If the bill reaches his desk, Gov. Cuomo will sign it into law. Granting driver’s licenses to illegals is “more beneficial to communities outside the City of New York,” he argues.
“There are clear economic gains for the state of New York, there are great revenues coming to our rural communities,” he said, according to the Post.

California moves to let felons serve on juries

ORANGE COUNTY REGISTER:

The state of California has made no secret that it wants to let as many people out of prison as possible.
From the early release of inmates through AB 109, to filling parole boards with felon friendly commissioners, to decriminalizing a litany of felonies and drug offenses with Props 47 and 57, Sacramento lawmakers are bending over backwards to dramatically reduce the state’s inmate population.
Despite all of these efforts, the number of inmates hasn’t dropped dramatically enough to satisfy the state’s ruling Democrats, so they’re kicking tires on a new approach — rigging the jury system so no one gets convicted in the first place.
This most recent push is Senate Bill 310, authored by state Sen. Nancy Skinner, D-Berkeley, and would allow Californians who have prior felony convictions to serve on juries.
In a press release promoting the proposal, Skinner wrote, “SB310 will help ensure that California juries represent a fair cross-section of our communities…People with felony records have the right to vote in California. There is no legitimate reason why they should be barred from serving on a jury.”
Currently, felons are prevented from serving on juries because of their obvious and inherent bias against prosecutors and law enforcement.

1600 Daily: Kim Kardashian West and President Trump highlight the power of criminal justice reform

Kim Kardashian West and President Trump highlight the power of criminal justice reform 
 

Last December, President Donald J. Trump signed the First Step Act—the first major overhaul of the U.S. criminal justice system in more than a decade.

For too long, our prison system has failed incarcerated Americans. Oversentencing kept many people behind bars for years after they’d paid their debts to society and were ready to rejoin and reinvest in their communities. Others left prison ill-equipped for employment and life on the outside. As a result, many succumbed to crime and re-imprisonment.
 
In just four months after President Trump signed the First Step Act, more than 1,000 requests for a reduced sentence were granted. Soon, thousands more who were once subjected to unfair sentencing will get a second chance.

Today, the President discussed the next step in making justice reform a lasting success: empowering Americans to find jobs—and a purpose—after leaving prison. For former inmates, the difficulty of reentering society was often made even tougher because of scarce opportunities for employment. That needs to change.

“As a result of the booming economy, we are bringing Americans who have been on the sidelines back into the workforce—including former inmates,” President Trump said.

The Trump Administration is taking additional action to encourage U.S. companies to invest in “second chance” hiring. The Department of Labor, for example, will grant $2 million to States this month for bonds that incentivize businesses to hire and train former offenders.

That opportunity can begin while inmates are still completing their sentences. For those currently incarcerated, the Department of Education is expanding an initiative to make Pell Grants available for their education and training.

President Trump is helping all Americans earn a second chance.

Washington Examiner: Criminal justice reform is already working.

The governors leading the way on getting more Americans hired 


Earlier this year, the White House asked America’s governors to share their top priorities for 2019. Their answers echoed one of President Trump’s most important agenda items: workforce development for Americans of all stripes.

This afternoon, a bipartisan group of governors met with both President Trump and Advisor to the President Ivanka Trump to discuss clearing any obstacles standing in the way of true economic mobility for our workers.

🎬 President Trump: “Tremendous progress” on fulfilling careers

These governors have been innovators in tackling that challenge, breaking down barriers such as restrictive occupational licensing, a lack of quality job training, and access to child care in their states. At the table today were Governors Doug Ducey (R-AZ), Brian Kemp (R-GA), David Ige (D-HI), Kim Reynolds (R-IA), Chris Sununu (R-NH), Tom Wolf (D-PA), Bill Lee (R-TN), and Mark Gordon (R-WY).

“One of the most rewarding things is to see people coming off the sidelines and back into the workforce,” Ivanka Trump said during today’s discussion. “Whether it’s criminal justice reform, second chance hiring, all the work we’re doing around skills training—employers are getting creative.”

The Pledge to America’s Workers: 9.8 million opportunities and climbing!
