By Ben Wolfgang and S.A. Miller - The Washington Times - Wednesday, November 9, 2016

Despite bipartisan calls for healing and unity after a brutal presidential campaign, liberal activist groups vowed Wednesday to fight from the get-go to stop President-elect Donald Trump’s agenda.

Democracy for America, a leading liberal political action committee and dependable advocate for the Democratic Party, called for a “progressive political revolution” to stymie what it described as Mr. Trump’s racist and sexist agenda.

“So let’s be absolutely clear: Democracy for America will do everything in our power to obstruct, delay and halt the attacks on people of color, women and working families that will emerge from a Trump administration,” said Charles Chamberlain, the group’s executive director.

“We are more convinced than ever that our country needs a massive, multiracial, multigenerational progressive political revolution led by women and people of color that is not beholden to the broken political establishment that brought us to this moment,” he said. “And that’s precisely what we’ll work with our members and our allies to build in the days, weeks and months ahead.”

Democrats, particularly those on the progressive left, for years accused Republicans of blindly obstructing virtually anything put forward by President Obama and his allies in Congress. But now, with Mr. Trump’s unexpected defeat of Hillary Clinton, and with Republicans retaining control on Capitol Hill, Democrats must decide whether to pursue their own obstructionist strategy.

AMEN.  Had nearly the ENTIRE media not been slanted and allowed the good things about Trump to be talked about, and told people how many Trump supporters were being assaulted, vandalized, etc.  And told about all of Killary and Bill's crimes........  It really would have been a phenomenal landslide.  But when you think about all the things that were against him.....and he STILL won....frankly, I have no doubts that God's hand was in this win.  But that doesn't mean we don't have to continue to be vigilant and that there isn't still a war to be fought.

BUT WE HAVE ONE HELL OF  BATTLE BEFORE US TO FOLLOW GOD AND DESTROY THE STRONGHOLDS OF SATANIC GLOBALISTS AND RADICAL MUSLIM EXPANSIONIST GOVERNMENT...!!! UNITE AMERICA BECAUSE WE NEED EVERY SINGLE AMERICAN WORKING FOR AMERICA...!!!

Washington DC Republican politicians have to regroup from an Anti-Trump policy to a Pro - Trump policy in a hurry.
Trump will use his "nuclear negotiating" team to fashion a Republican "YES TEAM" to implement the foundation of his new political TRUMP TOWER.
This is going to be a sight to behold.

    Come on you Bastards do something stupid so we can take you down. It is also time for the ACLU to go.

        Trump for a better America.

Jim is right.  And the reason (the REAL reason) is described in my discussion below.  Oddly, nobody seems to want to read it, understand it, nor respond to it, even though it is THE MOST pressing problem that the world faces, and of course, Pres. Trump will face.

again we wonder if these people even voted

Democrats, particularly those on the progressive left, for years accused Republicans of blindly obstructing virtually anything put forward by President Obama and his allies in Congress. But now, with Mr. Trump’s unexpected defeat of Hillary Clinton, and with Republicans retaining control on Capitol Hill, Democrats must decide whether to pursue their own obstructionist strategy.

The answer to the chaos we find in our nation won't go away by itself. These attacks from seemingly every direction shows one source and that source is very afraid of Trump and what he said he would do to this group. If you want to know who they are take a look at this video. They are temporarily embracing any groups that will seek to disrupt the peace of this nation and will accept all who want to fight it in ANYWAY just as long as the nation is being disrupted and they are hoping for extreme fear from the population. This is how they will gain control.

ALERT ALERT

Fact Check:   'Joe Biden Claims ‘We Didn’t Lock People Up In Cages’

CLAIM: Former Vice President Joe Biden claimed, on immigration: “We didn’t lock people up in cages.”

VERDICT: FALSE. The “cages” were built by the Obama-Biden administration.

Univision moderator Jorge Ramos asked Biden at the third Democrat debate at Texas Southern University in Houston, Texas, why Latinos should trust him after the Obama administration continued deporting “undocumented immigrants.”

Biden claimed that the Obama administration’s policies were more humane than those of President Donald Trump: “We didn’t lock people up in cages,” he said.

In fact, the “cages” were built by the Obama administration to deal with a surge of unaccompanied minors who crossed the border illegally in 2014.

Originally, the Obama administration was “warehousing” children — literally — in overwhelmed Border Patrol facilities. Breitbart News broke the story of the surge, which was partly triggered by Obama’s policy of allowing illegal alien children who entered the country as minors to stay in the country (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA).

The above photo was published by the Associated Press in June 2014, and the photo below is of Obama’s Secretary of Homeland Security, Jeh Johnson, touring a Border Patrol facility with “cages.”

The “cages” are chain-link enclosures in Border Patrol processing facilities that are meant to protect children from adults in custody. They are not permanent accommodations.

In mid-2018, as the Trump administration began enforcing a “zero tolerance” policy that stopped the “catch-and-release” policy of letting illegal aliens go after they were arrested. Detaining adults and children meant that children had to be processed separately; the enclosures prevented adults from harming children.

As Breitbart News reported at the time, children were not housed in “cages.” They were processed and then taken to shelters, where they were given medical care, toiletries, education, recreation, and counseling, and where staff attempted to find relatives or sponsors to whom they could be released.

Democrats began tweeting images of “kids in cages” to condemn the Trump administration. Journalists, too, shared those images.

One problem: they were taken during the Obama administration.

Public outrage at the images led President Trump to end the policy, and require families to be detained together.

Democrats keep repeating the mistake, however: in July, they had to delete a tweet that used an image from the Obama era and cited the “inhumane treatment” of children by the Trump administration.

Republicans argue that not detaining illegal aliens is actually the cruel policy, because it encourages migrants to undertake a dangerous journey, often guided by cartels and smugglers.

As Breitbart News’ Alana Mastrangelo noted recently:

But what’s worse than “cages,” however, are reports of migrant children also being handed over to human traffickers during the Obama administration — while Biden was vice president — according to the New York Times. Between October 2013 and July 2015 alone, nearly 80,000 unaccompanied children from Central American countries were detained by U.S. authorities.

It remains unclear how many of the tens of thousands of children were handed over to human traffickers — including sex traffickers — during that span of nearly two years, as those cases are reportedly not tracked.

“Others were ransomed by the very smugglers to whom their families paid thousands of dollars to sneak them into the United States,” reported the New York Times in 2015, during Obama’s presidency and Biden’s vice presidency. “Some lost limbs during the journey or found themselves sold into sexual slavery.”

Biden told voters in South Carolina last month that he would close all border detention facilities, guaranteeing that the migrant flow would continue.
