Racial discrimination in election process rampant in 2016 election

Since Obama won in 2012 the conservative backlash against POC who are traditionally Democratic voters succeeded in changing voting rights established in 1965 in the courts. It allowed conservative states to peel back voter rights made law over 50 years ago.This is not a well known fact and maybe it doesn't matter to CNN America that racial discrimination was rampant in this election. POC voters who supported Hillary Clinton as they had Obama were blocked from voting. Polls closed - 400 in Texas- 60% of the counties in Louisiana and in Arizona all counties closed one. This was done to specifically target young people and minorities. The Voting Acts Right of 1965 prevented states and counties primarily in the south to seek approval before making changes to their polling locations. The Supreme Court eradicated the coverage formula to prevent certain jurisdictions from "egregious voting discrimination" in 2013. The George W Bush appointed Chief Justice John Roberts Jr proclaimed it was because "current conditions" did not warrant it. In North Carolina, 66,000 black voters were affected by changes in voting locations. It is clear that "conditions" still warrant the full protection of the law and will always warrant it in to prevent racist voting practices that are rampant in parts of the US.

New York Times: Voters Abandoned by the Court November 8, 2016

Mark Zuckerberg created Facebook to get even with ex girlfriend

Mark and dating women 
Mark Zuckerberg's Facebook went beyond dating services to hospital donations in San Francisco. Obama met with Zuckerberg in 2008 in a job investment plan that has brought about the tech revolution, gentrification, exodus of POC, exodus of queer women, low income , rent controlled renters. How can such a geek do so much to the world to create faux human connection?

David Finch's "The Social Network" reveals what a socially awkward and immature jerk Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg was, how FB started out to ridicule his ex girlfriend (who fortunately ditched him for good), and then became a dating service for upper class heterosexual co-eds at Ivy League US colleges. Now FB is still pretty much used the same way to announce who is single and who is into dating women and men. Any other ambition was never the plan, but of course how well we use it to network beyond that is up to us. Consider yourself served!

Electoral college established to protect slaveholders of the US

Of course, and just to be sure, Section 5 of the Voter Rights Act of 1965 was repealed that was created to prevent discrimination against POC to insure white supremacy.
In the early morning hours after Election Day, in 2012, Donald Trump tweeted: At the time Trump falsely believed that Mitt Romney had won the popular vote and lost the…

Corporate exit polls mask Voter Rights Act of 1965 discrimination

We Still Do not Know Exactly which genders, which races, which classes voted for President. As of November 19, 2016 the same exit poll statistics are ONLY based on 25,537 voters! The data has been collected by CORPORATE MEDIA. Those taking the poll have followed the same protocol since 1984 in regard to race and gender.
According to corporate media it was WHITE WOMEN who cost Hillary the election. Let white women bare the burden of this election: not Voter Rights Act discrimination that prevented People of Color from voting in the south and jurisdictions where there has been historic discrimination at the polls. Nor corporate poll taking. Nor a 10% increase in white male Republicans who voted against Hillary. Exit polls are used for political agenda. It's better to blame white women for this election even if the same percentage of white women did not vote for Obama. Read the fine points to the current exit poll that is used to proclaim election results.
"Data for 2016 were collected by Edison Research for the National Election Pool, a consortium of ABC News, The Associated Press, CBSNews, CNN, Fox News and NBC News. The voter survey is based on questionnaires completed by 24,537 voters leaving 350 voting places throughout the United States on Election Day including 4,398 telephone interviews with early and absentee voters.
In 2012, 2008 and 2004, the exit poll was conducted by Edison/Mitofsky; in 1996 and 2000 by Voter News Services; in 1992 by Voter Research and Surveys; and in earlier years by The New York Times and CBS News.
Direct comparisons from year to year should factor in differences in how questions were asked. Race and sex were determined by interviewers in surveys before 1984. Independent or third-party candidates are not shown.
Population scaling is representative of the number of voters in each category.
*Change is shown in percentage points. When comparable data are available, this measure combines the change in Republican support and the change in Democratic support from the previous election."

Donald Trump Gets Booed as He Arrives at His Polling Place

Before the polls open:
Wishful thinking --even Hillary knew the race was fragile.

Je suis confiant que Hillary Clinton va gagner l'élection aux Etats-Unis, le seul candidat possible avec 16 ans d'expérience à la Maison Blanche

We need an education in media literacy! 

Realize that only 20% of Americans targeted for 10th grade educations or less is NOT a mandate vote. When the incumbent demeans immigrants, women, religion, minorities because "the Democrats just want to give away money to people who don't work" they have not understood that corporate (white) power want Republicans in power getting corporate welfare. I have thought about this all day. To compare the incumbent to anyone other than a corporate politician on corporate welfare (no taxes) who went after a select group in the south and rust belt -- the people he claims he "got to know" during the campaign is to make him bigger than what he is . I predict those Republicans who distanced themselves from him will vote along with Democrats and defeat every bigoted idea that has come out of his demented brain. Don't give up the fight!

The incumbent received  $3 billion (or more) in free advertising. Who didn't see that. Of course we saw that. The running banner under Hillary's coverage about Trump. Every day in the news about Trump. That is how fascists are elected. He is referred to as a Nationalist.  Corporate media promoted a  leader that made money for them.

Is every person who voted for Trump is a racist, sexist, homophobe, xenophobe all rolled into one? There is no other way to look at it than asking this question. Bigotry has been masked and disguised in other elections. In this one it is clear. 20% to 30% (generous) of the voters represent white male supremacy the folks that "made America great" in events such as the trans-Atlantic slave trade, and the eradication and massacre of Native Americans. The equivalents can be found in fascism around the world in all the "Great Wars". You cannot escape the truth this time. You cannot be in so much pain that you perpetuate all the atrocities of the past. The bigot is the real monster. It is the real American Horror Story.

Trump elected by ca 20% -30% of voters. 40% voted in 2012 Everything Trump does has to have a senatorial and congressional vote. There must be resistance to his ideas, not defeatism. Otherwise those ideas ( as noted in the election) will flourish.

"Wall Street could see its biggest ever fall when trading opens on Wednesday with futures pointing to a 800-point drop – more than 5%. "
Oh crap - who cares?

It really can happen here: The novel that foreshadowed Donald Trump’s authoritarian appeal 

IT CAN?  Has one bigot that much real  power! .

"Hillary concedes to Donald". 
Four dismal words for an American electorate flying blind. Sad to see such ignorance in the US. A real sad day for the country. The dumbing down of America with the ignorant chanting "USA USA USA" . 
"Bye bye American pie drove our Chevy to the levy but the levy was dry."
The American people have HARDLY spoken and A MINORITY HAS elected a leader with such a flawed myopic vision that is so horribly unqualified to serve THE USA. Those who voted for him, you deserve him.
News of a Trump imminent victory is NOT going to make US or the World Economy great again!


Meanwhile in California we have good news.....unfortunately we aren't the entire US.
