Biden - Presidential transition begins


trex

Recommended Posts

Just watched a video of a husband and his handicapped wife attacked for having the audacity to walk through a BLM road block. Attempting to get to the parade route.

Class personified.

 

Saw footage of other people just making their way along the street to watch the inauguration, doing nothing wrong just walking, being subjected to all kinds of abuse.

 

Why can't they just accept the result and get on with their lives.

It's utterly unimportant in the long run, but the incredibly low turnout at his "yuge" inauguration is at least funny for now.

Compared to the 2001 on the day of, I'm hearing the protests are quite small.

 

Tomorrow will be the massive one in DC.

Where was this? I think I saw something like this but not sure it's the same incident.

Aren't the things being taking down from the website part of procedure, Obamas policies etc are removed and transferred to another site, could be wrong?

Who as it happens, has the highest approval ratings of any president to date, was very popular with the black population, and avoided an almost inevitable nuclear war.

 

Don't remember Trump serving four years in the Navy either.

who as it happens greatly trumped trump's misogyny and abuse of women. Wwhose absurd we will fight anyone anywhere in defense of freedom rhetoric contributed to decades of us aggression. Whose defence of civil rights did not extend to sending in troops to impose desegregation in the South as both his predecessor eisenhower and successor Johnson did. And whose absurd obsession with castro'so Cuba led to the risk of nuclear war. Edited by Francis Albert

Watching the protests today it was like JKB when Cathro lost v Rangers - the guys not even had one day in the office and folk were freaking out.

 

Everybody deserves a chance to prove they can do some good.

Yes.  This was definitely gun jumping by the understandably over-eager do-gooders who ought to cool their jets and do some research and reflection before they publish stuff like this.

Every Presidential transition starts by changing the content of the websites.  There's nothing shadowy or cutthroat about the climate change stuff going away -- they have every right to take it down.

 

It speaks to what the new President's priorities are going to be.  Other sections on other topics are still there.  The Trump team's first actions related to climate policy and law enforcement. That's notable in its own right without breaking out the tinfoil hats.

Unlikely, given the fact that many those that voted for him did so because he promised to bring their jobs back.

 

you failed yourself there.

Funny that both Bushes got almost twice as many at each of their three inaugurations as Trump did, by casual inspection.

 

Trump did say his inauguration would be "record breaking."

Maybe families with kids didn't want their kids heids kicked in so stayed away.

Eventually you'll get it that your candidate lost. Ragging on Trump every chance you get will change nothing.

:lol: Snowflakes, snowflakes the lot of them.  From what I hear there were probably about 150 counter-protesters in DC today, versus, even with the small crowds, 100,000 Trump supporters, plus thousands of police in riot gear.

 

Ragging on Trump on the day he's inaugurated will entertain me and possibly others.  Sorry you're so sensitive about this.

"From what I hear"

200 arrests would lead people to believe your snitch is scamming you. Although you'll probably have some made up excuse for your number and the police numbers not matching.

As for the ragging and it entertaining you. You've got at least 4 years of free entertainment coming up. That's something to look forward to. Enjoy the weekend.

Admittedly, the number of protestors I did indeed make up based on the photos I'm seeing of small bands of 20-30 protestors at key intersections. There's a great photo on twitter of about 15 journalists taking pictures of one trash can on fire. I had heard 100 arrests, but of course that number went up with time.  In any case, the protestors that showed up today were the ones looking for conflict with Trump supporters.  My guess is that the crowd at the "women's march" tomorrow will be 3-4 times the size of the inauguration crowd, but that's just speculation based on how many people I know are going.

 

Congratulations to you on your candidate's success.  I will be spending the next four years doing what little I can to keep him from doing what he has said he would do.  A small portion of that I will share on JKB so long as some folk here seem interested in it.  

 

And in a very long tradition in American politics, I'll be making fun of him as much as I possibly can.  If this bothers you deeply, politics may not be for you.

 

Enjoy your celebrations.

Missed the speech yesterday but having watched it today we are in for a hell of a four to eight years.

 

With the rise of nationalism in Europe from Orban's Hungary and Poland's Law and Justice party to Le Penn and Wilders, to Brexit under a shoddy and cack handed leadership, Corbyn's left-wing-not-so-popular-populism in opposition (and in some ways opposing itself) to #indyref2 and Trumpism we are heading back to trade wars and tariffs and protectionism.

 

That speech was like a 1930s speech against FDR. America First: protectionism and a jingoistoc patriotism will do nothing for many people but bring hard times.

Protests in Edinburgh - absolute facepalm. These cretins won't even know what they are protesting about, just wanting to jump on the latest bandwagon to have a purpose in life.

 

Total sad acts.

Waterloo Place/Regent Road closed one way due to a protest at the American Consulate sure this happened last night aswell.

A small group of men hating feminists. It is getting to the stage where I don't think they even know or care what they protest about now.

Big protests and marches around the UK, Australia, New Zealand etc against Trump. Cringe.

 

If he doesn't give a **** about protests in the US what makes your opinion relevant?

They are just sad sad individuals who are unhappy in life as they have no purpose so want to cling onto something, anything that makes them feel included.

 

If I didn't despise the cretins them I'd feel sorry for them.

That or they disagree with a man who has dubious respect for women especially abortion rights, who has appointed white supremacists to his top team, who has set his stall out against climate change - which will affect us all - and is happy to begin repealing LGBT rights.

 

Saddos to you maybe. But clearly these people feel strongly enough to take to the streets and protest in solidarity with those who will face the full force of a Trump presidency.

I don't see what's great about a man who is a schister and a mysoginist running the world's policeman quote frankly.

 

You did hear his statements on equal rights for the LGBT community? Or his views on a right to choose for women? The fact he wanted a new Supreme Coirt judge who would begin repealing these things?

 

If folk want to march in solidarity with people over these things, then why not? It's democracy in action.

"Trump myth" = "things Trump has said repeatedly on camera and has now posted on whitehouse.gov"
