Nine Things Obama Could Do Before Leaving Office to Reveal the Nature of the National Security State By Pratap Chatterjee

In less than seven weeks, President Barack Obama will hand over the government to Donald Trump, including access to the White House, Air Force One, and Camp David. Trump will also, of course, inherit the infamous nuclear codes, as well as the latest in warfare technology, including the Central Intelligence Agency’s fleet of killer drones, the National Security Agency’s vast surveillance and data collection apparatus, and the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s enormous system of undercover informants.

Before the recent election, Obama repeatedly warned that a Trump victory could spell disaster. "If somebody starts tweeting at three in the morning because SNL [Saturday Night Live] made fun of you, you can’t handle the nuclear codes," Obama typically told a pro-Clinton rally in November. "Everything that we've done over the last eight years," he added in an interview with MSNBC, "will be reversed with a Trump presidency."

Trump says on twitter that millions of illegal votes happened and that dead people were voting.  Either he has been watching too many episodes of the walking dead, he doesn't know anything or he knows it is a fact because he engineered it.   

He is also attacking the first amendment with the flag burning issue.  At present it is not illegal to burn a flag because of free speach.  He cannot take away someones citizenship.  That is a hint of what to expect in the future.  America is no longer the "Leader of the Free World".

Thist all sounds like the typical Trump big fat lies which he uses effectively to distract from other events going down that would effect his ability to become President...Conflicts of interest being the obvious one.  Shady appointments another.

As U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) urges the president-elect "to heed the views of progressives," protests continue in cities across the U.S. on Saturday, with participants driven by "outrage and fear" over Donald Trump's electoral victory.

Describing the continued demonstrations, the New York Times writes that "a national resistance among liberal activists and others who say they do not support his presidency is rising in response to the election in a way not seen in modern presidential history." They also, as Common Dreams reported, "continue amid a reported increase of abuse and assaults against Muslims, people of color, immigrants, women and girls, and the LGBTQ community, among other minorities."

"On Friday night," the Washington Post reports, "people marched in cities including New York, the District, Dallas, Miami, Orlando, Raleigh, and Portland—where, for a second night, demonstrations turned violent. More rallies were planned through the weekend in scattered cities."

Though they have been largely peaceful, one of the protesters in Portland who faced tear gas and flash-bang grenades was shot in the early hours on Saturday.

The life of Tom Hayden
 


October 23, 2016, 

Tom Hayden, a 1960s radical who was in the vanguard of the movement to stop the Vietnam War and became one of the nation’s best-known champions of liberal causes, has died in Santa Monica after a lengthy illness. He was 76.

Hayden vaulted into national politics in 1962 as lead author of a student manifesto that became the ideological foundation for demonstrations against the war.

Judging by official statements in the aftermath of the ongoing Central Coast diesel fuel spill the response to the disaster was relatively effective and damage minimized – a PR line largely soaked up by the mainstream media. To the people in whose territory the incident occurred, the Heiltsuk Nation, and local residents who will have to live with the consequences of the spill, nothing could be further from the truth.
