WATCH: Woman at Pence rally calls for ‘revolution’ if Hillary is elected

Published

on

During a Mike Pence rally in Newton, Iowa on Tuesday, one voter was up in arms over Hillary Clinton and the electoral process.

Citing Trump hysteria that the elections are going to be rigged and that there is a serious chance of voter fraud at the polls, the voter named Rhonda, who introduced herself as being “on social media all day, everyday nonstop since last June” called for a revolution if Hillary won the election.

Rhonda told Pence, “One of the biggest things I can tell you that a lot of us are scared of is this voter fraud. There’s a lot of us saying that when we go to vote, we’re gonna wear red. Our lives depend on this election, our kids futures depend on this election.” The room gently applauds.

She continues, “And I will tell you, just for me, I don’t want this to happen but I will tell you for me, personally, if Hillary Clinton gets in, I myself, I’m ready for a revolution.” Pence quickly responds, “No, no don’t say that.”

Pence’s establishment politics are showing, and they are the exact opposite of the Trump campaign’s message. Over the last year, Trump has recklessly circulated the idea that this election is surely rigged and that he alone can save the American people.

The media is not on his side, the Clinton campaign is fighting him with insults, and the polls absolutely need to be monitored for voter fraud, according to Trump.

However, one good, hard look in the mirror, and the GOP nominee would know there is nothing rigged about his chances. But that’s not the right narrative and Trump has built a movement of outlier support from the fringes of this country.

If Trump goes down in November, he’s taking Clinton, the Republican party, and the electoral process with him. On Tuesday, the GOP nominee went after House Speaker Paul Ryan on Twitter calling him “weak and ineffective,” and slamming members of the Republican party who have dropped their support for him as “disloyal.”

He then tweeted how he was finally free of his “shackles” and said he was going to “fight for America the way I want to.” If that’s the case, then what has he been doing the rest of this election?

One thing is for sure, if Trump is going to burn the GOP to the ground, then it’s Pence’s job to silence the revolution.

‘People’s lives will be lost’: Psychiatrist warns ‘sociopath’ Trump is ‘getting worse’ — and failing in coronavirus response

Published

on

President Donald Trump's psychological problems are getting worse and could be consequential as America faces a potential COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic.

MSNBC's Lawrence O'Donnell on Thursday interviewed Dr. Lance Dodes, a former assistant clinical professor of psychiatry at Harvard Medical School.

"As you pointed out, Lawrence, this man is about himself. He really is not about the country, he's not about public health," Dr. Dodes said of Trump.

"Although he has already severely damaged the country by being a psychopath or sociopath -- in many ways, he's damaged democracy -- I think people's lives will be lost now," he warned. "Individual lives will be lost because of the way he's mishandling the coronavirus issue."

Published

As the 2020 presidential campaign cycle grinds on, there’s renewed concern about the 21st century’s newest form of warfare: cyber-sabotage of government systems, including elections and online disinformation intended to incite unrest. But as Suppressed: The Fight to Vote, a documentary from Brave New Films, makes clear, partisan voter suppression tactics with 20th-century roots remain and can thwart multitudes of voters from changing their state’s political leaders.

The real story behind Trump’s new lawsuit against the New York Times

Published

on

Wednesday was an ominous day for freedom of the press in this country, and I want to tell you why.

You may have heard or seen that President Trump filed a libel suit against the New York Times. Perhaps you weren’t surprised: the president is known to frequently disparage the Times even as he reads it obsessively. Borrowing a page from what I’ve referred to before as a Mount Rushmore of totalitarians, Robespierre, Hitler, Stalin and Mao, Trump loves to call the press the “enemy of the people.”
