Trump contradicts past denials, Admits sending Giuliani to Ukraine

Westlake Legal Group y0lvYcg_r8dsE-QSMxcMBp3tKp60vJWyXjSM9chdXmg Trump contradicts past denials, Admits sending Giuliani to Ukraine r/politics

“Here’s my choice: I deal with the Comeys of the world, or I deal with Rudy,” Trump said, referring to former FBI Director James Comey. Trump explained that he has “a very bad taste” of the US intelligence community, because of the Russia investigation, so he turned to Giuliani.

So, the choice between using the existing system with appointed officials who get some sort of vetting, and someone who has no vetting or authority to do work on behalf of the US, he chooses the latter. Because the existing system is all Comeys. Y’know, career officials who try to follow procedure and laws.

If we take this a step further, why not have your own people with guns to do his military bidding? If Trump finds too much resistance in the military to his directions, who is to say he just won’t phone up Erik Prince and get the good ole boys to go somewhere and shoot up some “bad guys”? Sure, the military pretty much does anything that the President orders, but it’s only a matter of Trump deciding to do something unconscionable.

We already see hints of it with the school system. Don’t like what they are teaching? Not enough religion, or maybe they are trying to teach global warming, general history, or empathy? Why not just create some private schools that can teach Jesus rode on dinosaurs and the blacks were happy to be slaves, etc? Fund the private schools, defund the public ones, then when the public one’s quality goes down, blame it on “public” schools and privatize the whole system. “I deal with eggheads of the education system, or I deal with smart people like me, except maybe I’m a little bit smarter.”

Elected officials with accountability? Nah, that’s for weak countries. USA! USA! USA!

Poll: Sanders Hits 50 Percent Support Among College Students

Westlake Legal Group 8l2AGG8XJEF-sr9EDd3cHWnuK2FUVaFtI_TH1wkb5lU Poll: Sanders Hits 50 Percent Support Among College Students r/politics

Trump’s base is motivated and we need more than just democrats to vote for our nominee. 27% of the country identifies as Democrat, 27% as Republican, and 45% as Independent. As Democrats we need to see the youth movement and independents join us in a coalition to overcome gerrymandering and other obstacles in the path of democracy.

We need large voter turnout to elect Democrats up and down the ticket for the Senate and local elections.

Bernie would absolutely crush voter turnout in the general election, bringing out more than just the portion of the electorate that reliably votes Democrat.

He has the most funds, most volunteers, most donors, and an extremely organized ground game. His team is trained and ready to make millions of phone calls and knock millions of doors to register new voters.

As he starts winning additional primaries I think Democrats will get behind him. The plan is to bring out some of the 50% of America that doesn’t vote, to add on to our totals, to ensure Republicans are defeated.

If Bernie is up, Trump is going down.

I’m Rebecca Tippett, a demographer at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill who uses Census data every week in my work. I’m here with friends from the Population Reference Bureau and the NC Counts Coalition to answer all of your Census-related questions. AMA!

Westlake Legal Group qYuVHn9LPluZ136utWNrLQaFedLY8NOmVk1N3Bdoqeg I’m Rebecca Tippett, a demographer at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill who uses Census data every week in my work. I’m here with friends from the Population Reference Bureau and the NC Counts Coalition to answer all of your Census-related questions. AMA! r/politics

When we talk about the importance of the Census, we often talk about power and money. We use the Census counts to distribute political power and allocate funding for everything from highway spending to programs like Medicare and Head Start.But the Census is more than just that. It is the backbone of virtually every data product researchers, governments, and businesses use to understand who we are, how we’ve changed, and what this might mean for the future. It’s also the most democratic and inclusive activity we do as a country. This once-a-decade count is the only source of basic demographic data on all individuals living in the United States.

Counting everyone who lives in the United States—and counting them accurately—is really hard to do. In 2010, the overall census count was highly accurate, but certain populations were undercounted, meaning they were missed in the census totals. Renters, black men, American Indians living on reservations, and Hispanics were among the groups with higher rates of undercount in 2010. But the highest rate of undercount was for young children ages 0 to 4.

We’re here today to answer any questions you have about the Census and and how researchers use Census data in their work. We are:

Rebecca Tippett, (ncdemography) a demographer who leads Carolina Demography at UNC-Chapel Hill and made a hard-to-count map of the state of North Carolina for the NC Counts Coalition

Stacey Carless, (nccountscoalition) the executive director of the NC Counts Coalition, which serves as a hub to facilitate a complete and accurate Census count for North Carolina

Beth Jarosz, (datageekb) a Senior Research Associate in U.S. Programs at the Population Reference Bureau, which has a lot of great resources about the US 2020 Census, including a FAQ, a guide to how the Census counts people who have more than one address (like college students!!) and a preview of the upcoming Census.
