I’m a citizen disappointed by the shallowness of our media and lack of honest examination of today’s deeper challenges. Such as coming to grips with what society has done to our Earth’s biosphere (life support system). I realize no one likes bad news, but faith-based denial isn’t going to do our children any good either.

REJECT the Russian Obligate Trump - a national security threat
Citizens with a sense of history must realize our America is experiencing a hostile take over attempt. Let’s get real, Putin is amoral and absolutely ruthless and he has set his sights on America - and Trump is his man.
The only ones standing between Putin and success are We The American People standing strong and demanding heroic action from our Democratic Representatives! - We need to flood our elected Representatives, give them the public support that strength’s those weak spines. If you love your country and don’t think its half as bad a Trump is trying to brainwash us into believing - then it is your duty to get involved.
Remember Trump does not become President-Elect until after the Electoral College meets December 19th. The Electoral College system was put in place precisely for this kind of extreme circumstance, such as being defrauded on our election process.
Who runs our country, Putin, mega-corporate oligarchs or will We The People cling to what democracy we still retain? Don't kid yourselves, this is for keeps!
Because the oligarchs are preparing to storm the gates - unless We The People produce a massive outpouring, massive like never before >>> Demand that our elected and sworn Representative, stand strong, united, and not allow this Rigged Election of 2016 to stand.
We are up against utterly ruthless and fundamentally dishonest bullies who are intent on dismantling what Americans have spent a century of hard effort achieving.
I’m told don’t bet on Vice President Biden to stand strong on January 3rd in order to see to it that Judge Merrick Garland get’s his Supreme Court Nomination Vote! We cannot afford to allow Trump or the Republicans to pack this court, there must be balance. (have you seen Trump's choices?) This for real ! ~ This is for keeps ! ~ Democracy use it or lose it !
I bet thousands, tens of thousands, why not hundreds of thousands of messages to Biden demanding a Garland vote on January 3rd, would go a long way to making it happening.
The only guarantee is that without overwhelming public demand, nothing will happen and America’s troubles are going to begin like we never could have imagined. This is for real ! ~ This is for keeps ! ~ Democracy use it or lose it !
Secret CIA assessment says Russia was trying to help Trump win White House
By Adam Entous, Ellen Nakashima and Greg Miller | December 9 at 10:45 PM
The CIA has concluded in a secret assessment that Russia intervened in the 2016 election to help Donald Trump win the presidency, rather than just to undermine confidence in the U.S. electoral system, according to officials briefed on the matter.
Intelligence agencies have identified individuals with connections to the Russian government who provided WikiLeaks with thousands of hacked emails from the Democratic National Committee and others, including Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman, according to U.S. officials. Those officials described the individuals as actors known to the intelligence community and part of a wider Russian operation to boost Trump and hurt Clinton’s chances.
“It is the assessment of the intelligence community that Russia’s goal here was to favor one candidate over the other, to help Trump get elected,” said a senior U.S. official briefed on an intelligence presentation made to U.S. senators. “That’s the consensus view.” ...
President Obama has ordered a full review of foreign-based digital attacks that U.S. intelligence agencies say were aimed at influencing this year’s presidential election, a top White House official said Friday.
The disclosure came after President-elect Donald Trump again dismissed a blunt U.S. intelligence assessment that concluded senior Russian authorities had authorized the digital theft of emails from Democratic Party officials and Hillary Clinton’s campaign manager during the campaign.
You bet Trump and his Alt-Right bullies will be screaming its rigged, its rigged, Russia would never do that.
President-elect Donald Trump is receiving an average of one presidential intelligence briefing a week, according to U.S. officials familiar with the matter, far fewer than most of his recent predecessors. …
Donald Trump will remain an exec producer on NBC’s “Celebrity Apprentice,” which is returning Jan. 2 after a two-year hiatus with new host Arnold Schwarzenegger.
MGM confirmed to Variety that Trump has retained his EP credit on the series. The president-elect’s status on the 15th season of the reality series that made him a household name has been a question since Trump launched his presidential campaign in June 2015. In the credit sequence, Trump’s name will air after that of “Apprentice” creator Mark Burnett and before Schwarzenegger, who is also an exec producer of the new incarnation along with Page Feldman and Eric Van Wagenen. …
