The media figures arrived at Trump Tower on Monday afternoon for off-the-record meetings with the president-elect, who spent much of his campaign bashing the “dishonest” media — including deriding CNN as the “Clinton News Network” and repeatedly attacking the “failing” New York Times via Twitter.
According to a transition pool report, the media personalities are as follows: NBC News President Deborah Turness; MSNBC President Phil Griffin; CNN President Jeff Zucker and network anchor Wolf Blitzer; Fox News Co-Presidents Bill Shine and Jack Abernethy and Executive Vice Presidents Jay Wallace and Suzanne Scott; and CBS News anchors John Dickerson and Charlie Rose.
“@realDonaldTrump more gracious and magnanimous than I would be,” Fox News host and Trump ally Sean Hannity tweeted. “Meeting with network execs that tried hard to defeat him @CNN @NBCNews.”
Major media and certain figures in the Sandy Hook fundraising and gun control cavalcade have recently highlighted prominent radio host and filmmaker Alex Jones as a brash and indecisive observer of the Newtown school shooting event. A central reason for the attention of late is the fact that Jones has vigorously supported the Trump-Pence presidential campaign, with the president-elect responding in kind. Fortunately, Jones has issued one of his characteristically unambiguous video editorials to set the record straight.
As some observers will recall our “tip of the spear” alt-media broadcaster issued a very similar statement in January 2013.
Jones seems to have been given the unenviable task of convincing his audience to disbelieve or at least withhold judgement on what they’re already certain they’ve detected. This is illustrated in the classic Richard Pryor “lying eyes” monologue, where the comic explains to his significant other as she stumbles upon his philandering, “What you’re seeing here baby–you didn’t really see it. This ain’t goin’ on.”
Trump Is the Legitimate President Based on Constitutional Principles of Federalism and States Rights
Any first year law student should be able to tell you that we have 51 sets of laws, one for the federal government, and 50 for each state.
Federalism is a fundamental principle of government, in the United States, that defines the relationship between the federal government at the national level, and its constituent units at the state and local levels.
Trump won the majority of states, and he won the majority of electoral votes. We live in a shared system of government. Those citizens who do not like the laws or political make-up of their states are free to move to another state per the Privileges and Immunities Clause, the Commerce Clause as well as other federal statutes and Supreme Court Constitutional interpretations.
Robert Steele is making a final big push with Trump Team and the Also Rans. His endeavor is taking three tracks:
Track One: show Donald Trump, Reince Priebus, and Paul Ryan why Electoral Reform, Grand Strategy, and a Presidential Academy are the fastest cheapest way of stopping the riots and protests funded by George Soros and other evil-doers, while blocking the Swamp People for taking them over. The free online version of our carefully documented (30 endnotes, close to 50 links) story:
Track Two: show Libertarians and Greens particularly, but Constitution, Reform, and genuine independents as well as emerging parties such as Working Families, why they should come together to support Donald Trump as the legitimate President-Elect provided that he signs the Electoral Reform Act — the Unity Act — on Inauguration Day.The leaders of the Libertarian and Green parties, as well as Cynthia McKinney, Ralph Nader, and others, are being encouraged to issue a joint press release this coming week. Details on Open Power Electoral Reform – note the memo to Tom Steyer, are here:
