If only we could sneak some facts into the president's media diet.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xecEV4dSAXE&sns=twJohn Oliver zeigt, welche Medien für Trump relevant sind und auf welche Art von Nachrichten er reagiert. Alex Jones, Breitbart usw ...Ich denke man muss sich das so vorstellen, als ob Netzfrau Schreidoro bei uns Kanzlerin und Bundespräsidentin gleichzeitig wäre, Ken Jebsen ihr Chefberater und der Honigmann ihr einziges Informationsmedium (wahlweise umgekehrt). Hamer wäre Gesundheitsminister, Jo Conrad Regierungssprecher und Norbert Schittke Innenminister.
ZitatAaaand back to Trump... Attendee: "Ever since the election, I have felt like a passenger in a car that's being driven by a drunk driver."
Zitatgrew up in abusive drug addicted home - exactly how this feels. hunker down in terror, watch obsessively and put out fires.
ZitatThere were questions about whether Trump had confused Sweden with Sehwan in Pakistan, where a suicide bomber blew himself up among devotees at the Sufi shrine on Friday, killing 80 people.Some citizens of Sweden were baffled by the comments. One of the country's official Twitter accounts, controlled by a different citizen each week, currently a school librarian, said: "Nothing has happened here in Sweden. There has not [been] any terrorist attacks here. At all."
ZitatDas nie stattgefundene "Massaker von Bowling Green" ist nicht ganz verdaut, da präsentiert die US-Regierung neue "alternative Fakten". Dieses Mal war es Trump selbst, der im Zusammenhang mit Terroranschlägen in Europa sagte: "Schaut Euch an, was gestern Nacht in Schweden passiert ist." Ja was denn eigentlich?
ZitatDiese Figur kann kaum als kindisch kritisiert werden, weil ihm Mündigkeit gar keine Kategorie ist. Und so versteht Trump sein notorisches Lügen auch nicht als Lügen. Sondern einfach nur als eine fluide, temporäre Behauptung, die ihn nicht bindet und zu nichts verpflichtet.
ZitatCaralyn Davis: Ah, but could it be busywork to keep 45 happy vs. a real draft of something they'd release?Rogue POTUS Staff: It's fake.Caralyn Davis: Most probably, but I'm enchanted by the plausibility. :)Rogue POTUS Staff: Now you know what it feels like to be one of those people who believe in POTUS.
ZitatHis unorthodox living arrangement with his wife has created security costs that will surpass each year the level of funding required by, say, the National Endowment for the Arts, which the president allegedly seeks to defund.
ZitatThe mission of the FEC is essential to ensuring a fair electoral process. Yet since the Supreme Court's Citizens United decision, our political campaigns have been awash in unlimited, often dark, money. Since 2010. well over S800 million in dark money has been spent in competitive races. At the same time, elections have become more and more expensive. Most of the funding comes from a tiny, highly unrepresentative segment of the population. During the 2016 election cycle, several campaigns, including yours, identified serious issues in our campaign finance system. You. for example, decried the influence of money in politics, describing the political system as "broken." You condemned the influence of wealthy donors, calling your primary opponents "puppets" for attending a major donor retreat. You highlighted the setting up of super PACs by some candidates as "a scam" and a circumvention of campaign finance laws, because they were not truly independent of those candidates. And you said, due to self-financing, that you were not beholden to or influenced by wealthy donors.Many of these same concerns have been voiced by Americans of all political views who are angry at the disproportionate influence of big money on government policy. At least 87% of Americans—including more than 80% of people in both major parties—favor changes to our campaign finance laws so that wealth does not dictate political influence. Our campaign finance system should promote citizen engagement and participation in the political process instead of disenchantment with democracy. People from all walks of life should be able to mn for office without having to seek out wealthy donors, or be wealthy themselves, to win. And. all political spending should be transparent to encourage trust in our political system.https://medium.com/@AnnMRavel/departing-the-federal-election-commission-fee0ae9d63a1#.1r86mx7j5
