Staffers leaving the White House in tears and are horrified by Trump

white-house-aide-in-tears

I’m all out of empathy for these libtards.

One. More. Day.

From Yahoo: They line up near the Oval Office, down the hallway toward the Cabinet Room, trailed by their spouses and young kids in their finest clothes. When it’s their turn, the White House staffers enter for a few private moments with President Barack Obama, a photo and a farewell hug from the boss.

There’s a mass exodus underway this week at the White House. As Obama holds his last news conference Wednesday, his staff is busy packing up their offices and turning in their BlackBerrys. For some who joined Obama’s team right out of college, it’s the end of the only professional experience they’ve ever known.

The finals days of any president’s administration are always bittersweet and heavy on nostalgia, as officials face the transition back to being “civilians” who will no longer have their hands on the nation’s levers of power. Yet there’s added sadness this time for Obama staffers who are mostly horrified by the incoming administration of President-elect Donald Trump.

“You’re always aware that it’s a special privilege to work there and not something to take for granted,” said Nate Lowentheil, who worked on Obama’s National Economic Council for the last three years. “It’s particularly hard knowing the next wave of people coming are going to be working to reverse the things you were working to advance until your very last hour.”

There were tears on the faces of some White House aides on Tuesday as press secretary Josh Earnest appeared in the James S. Brady Press Briefing Room for his final press briefing — his 354th as press secretary, Earnest said. Even former staffers were invited to return to the White House witness Earnest’s last round of jousting with reporters.

“I’m going to miss it,” Earnest said. “It will take some getting used to seeing somebody else standing up here doing it.”

“Or not,” he added, in a nod to the prospect that Trump’s team may make changes to the daily briefing.

In between closing out final projects and typing up reports on the work they’ve done, White House staffers are packing away their knickknacks, coffeemakers and photos. The boxes stack up in offices already vacated by staffers who have departed over the past few weeks. By Thursday night, all must be gone to make way for Trump’s team.

Before they leave the building for the final time, they’ll go through a checklist that completes their formal separation from the White House: cell phones handed in, computers locked and papers properly filed to be archived. The last step, aides said, is the hardest: handing in the badge that provides access to the complex day or night.

Then they depart the building and make what for many is a jarring transition from 18-hour workdays and little personal time to unemployment. Lowentheil said that since his last day less than two weeks ago, he’d read three novels, slept 10-12 hours a night and, for the first time in years, didn’t set a morning alarm.

Emails announcing a staffer’s last day stream in at a faster and faster pace as Jan. 20 approaches. They share with colleagues a personal email address and cell phone number, a thank you and maybe a brief reflection on their time at the center of it all.

“It’s been an honor to be a part of it. And yeah, I’m interested in what happens here. And I’ll continue to follow it,” Earnest said. “But I will be relieved to not have the burden to follow it as closely as this job has required over the last two-and-a-half years.”

A few White House staffers have found new jobs already, but most are taking some time off to ponder next steps. Some are going home to visit family they haven’t spent much time with in years. One said he was spending two months driving across the country, unsure of what he’d do next. Others are taking long vacations to places like New Zealand and Iceland, unencumbered by the need to constantly check in with the office.

“This is the only world I’ve known,” said Clay Dumas, who took time off from college to work for Obama’s 2008 campaign, then interned at the White House before being hired four years ago. He said he was searching for a job that would allow him to continue advancing values and policies he worked on in the White House. “Whatever I do next will be a huge continuation of that.”

Obama gives $500 million to climate fund over GOP objections

Obama-bribes

One. More. Day.

From Yahoo: With just three days (at the time of publication of this article) left in office, the Obama administration has doubled an initial $500 million commitment to a fund that helps developing nations fight climate change and adapt to its consequences.

The incoming Trump administration and some Republicans oppose the program.

The State Department’s announcement Tuesday brings U.S. contributions to the Green Climate Fund to $1 billion since 2016. The fund helps poor countries reduce carbon emissions by promoting clean energy and spurring private investment in the field.

“This administration has committed to this fund, in fact helped stand it up, establish it,” State Department spokesman John Kirby said. “And it is entirely in keeping with the work that we’ve been doing across the interagency to try to look for ways to stem the effects of climate change, and this fund helps other economies, other countries develop their own initiatives and help them deal with this.”

Obama promised a total of $3 billion to the fund in 2014 as part of the Paris climate change accord, but it is far from certain that full amount will be pledged.

President-elect Donald Trump and a number of GOP lawmakers have complained that support for the fund wasn’t specifically approved by Congress. The administration argues the current fiscal year’s budget allows it to take the money from an unobligated portion of a total of $4.3 billion in economic support fund assistance. The previous $500 million installment was made in the same way.

Trump already has his 2020 campaign slogan!

The Left’s Trump Derangement Syndrome is sure to go into overdrive over this.

maga

Katherine Rodriguez reports for Breitbart that two days before his inauguration, Donald Trump already has the slogan for his re-election campaign in 2020.

During an interview with the Washington “fake news” Post on Jan. 18, 2017, he asked, “Are you ready?,” then announced his 2020 campaign slogan:

“Keep America Great!”

Trump called his lawyer into his office to trademark the slogan, more than three years before he is up for re-election, so confident is he that America would be great by the time he uses it.

It turns out he had done this before.

In 2012, within a week of Mitt Romney’s loss to Obama, Trump trademarked “Make America Great Again” for a $325 fee.

He explained that at the time, “I felt that jobs were hurting. I looked at the many types of illness our country had, and whether it’s at the border, whether it’s security, whether it’s law and order or lack of law and order. Then, of course, you get to trade, and I said to myself, ‘What would be good?’ I was sitting at my desk, where I am right now, and I said, ‘Make America Great Again.’”

To him, “Make America Great Again” meant a plan from more jobs to a stronger military.

The slogan and the hashtag #MAGA quickly made its way to hats and t-shirts, and became a rallying cry for supporters.

In addition to his 2020 campaign slogan, Trump plans to keep his campaign office in Trump Tower open during his first presidential term to work on re-election efforts, Politico reported.

5,000 Bikers to protect Trump Inauguration

Note: This post was originally titled “Ads offer $2500 to crisis actors to protest at Trump inauguration”. I changed the title to reflect new information that the ads are probably fake. (See “Update” at end of post.)

***

More than 100 left-wing groups are calling on their minions to participate in inauguration protests being organized in Washington, D.C., and all 50 states — aimed at disrupting Friday’s inaugural ceremony and parade, as well as balls and festivities pegged to the celebration, such as the Deploraball.

The groups include Disrupt J20 and Women’s March on Washington. For the names of some of the groups, see “Video evidence of the Left’s terrorist plans for Trump inauguration“.

The media are touting them as a massive upcoming protest. But how genuine are the protesters if they are PAID to protest?

Valerie Richardson reports for the Washington Times, Jan. 17, 2017, that job ads in more than 20 cities are offering $2,500 per month to demonstrate at the upcoming presidential inauguration events.

On January 12, Demand Protest, a San Francisco self-described “largest private grassroots support organization in the United States,” posted on Backpage.com in at least two dozen cities identical ads soliciting “operatives”. Among the cities are Austin, Charlotte, Chicago, Colorado Springs, Columbus, Dallas, Denver, Detroit, El Paso, Fort Worth, Houston, Jacksonville, Los Angeles, New York, Oakland, Oklahoma City, Omaha, Philadelphia, Phoenix, San Diego, San Francisco, Seattle, Tulsa, and Washington, D.C.

The ad says:

“Get paid fighting against Trump! We pay people already politically motivated to fight for the things they believe. You were going to take action anyways, why not do so with us! We are currently seeking operatives to help send a strong message at upcoming inauguration protests.”

The ad offers a monthly retainer of $2,500 plus “our standard per-event pay of $50/hr, as long as you participate in at least 6 events a year,” as well as health, vision and dental insurance for full-time operatives.

On its website, Demand Protest claims to have provided 1,817 operatives for 48 campaigns; promises “deniability”; and assures clients that “we can ensure that all actions will appear genuine to media and public observers”:

“We are strategists mobilizing millennials across the globe with seeded audiences and desirable messages. With absolute discretion a top priority, our operatives create convincing scenes that become the building blocks of massive movements. When you need the appearance of outrage, we are able to deliver it at scale while keeping your reputation intact.”

So who’s paying for the crisis actors?

Answer: George Soros, the same evil old demon who funds the #BlackLivesMatter riots.

Alatheia Nielsen reports for NewsBusters that more than a quarter of the 158 groups listed as “partners” on the Women’s March on Washington website are funded by George Soros. The chart below gives the amount of money those groups have received from Soros from 2000 to 2014, totaling $90 million, which does not include what they’re getting to protest at the Trump inauguration.

soros-donations-to-womens-march-on-d-c-partnersIn contrast, Trump doesn’t have to pay people to come to his inauguration. Among his supporters will be 5,000 “Bikers for Trump” who have said they will form a “wall of meat” to guard against any protesters looking to disrupt the festivities. Chris Cox, the founder of Bikers for Trump, said:

“The bikers are certainly used to being outnumbered and we are prepared to form a wall of meat. We’re anticipating a celebration here. We don’t anticipate any problems. We have a strict code of conduct where we don’t condone violence. But again in the event that we’re needed, you can certainly count on the Bikers for Trump.

We’ll be shoulder-to-shoulder with our brothers and we’ll be toe-to-toe with anyone that is going to break through any police barriers, that’s going to be assaulting women, spitting on them, throwing things at them. We are anticipating a peaceful transition of power.

The backbone of the biker community is the veteran. So these are guys that aren’t really used to backing down. You certainly won’t see bikers out there screaming, calling for destruction of private property or the death of police officers.”

Let’s see . . . .

On one side are the screaming feminazis, Khazarian commies, and trannies:

On the other side are military-vet bikers:

I’m betting my money on the bikers! 😀

The majority of Americans believe Russian hacking of the presidential election did not change the result

blame-the-russians

Maybe that’s because there’s still no definitive proof that Russia was behind hacking the DNC emails, which exposed the democrats’ and state run media’s attempt to get Hillary elected. Better luck next time.

From Daily Mail: Most Americans think Donald Trump would have still won the election regardless of information leaks that came out of Russia’s alleged hacking, a poll reported.

In the study, 58 per cent thought the outcome of the U.S. presidential elections would have remained the same, despite the hacking of files from the Democratic National Convention.

Americans thought ‘regardless of the information released as a result of Russian hacking’ Trump would still have won the election, according to a poll conducted by CNN and ORC.

A minority of 40 per cent of people said the information leak was damaging enough to change voter’s minds. Wikileaks published thousands of emails and documents pertaining to Hillary Clinton’s campaign and the DNC, in June 2016.

CIA officials concluded that Russia was involved and the leaks were intended to prevent Clinton from winning the presidency.  Even Trump admitted that he believed Putin and his government were behind the intelligence (since when are DNC emails considered “intelligence?”) scandal and said in a press conference that he ‘thought it was Russia’.

The senate announced last week that an intelligence panel was investigating Russia’s alleged hacking and the country’s ties with the political campaigns.

Despite the major security breach, most Americans think the U.S. should seek to improve relations with Russia, instead of taking actions against the foreign government, according to the study.

Of those polled, 56 per cent said it was ‘more important that the U.S. continue efforts to improve relations with Russia’ while 41 per cent said America should ‘take strong diplomatic and economic steps against Russia in response’.
