Video title (Rachel Maddow): The real reason why trump picks Exxon CEO Rex Tillerson
Rex Tillerson, 64, has ties to Russian President Vladimir Putin
Tillerson, who has spent his entire adult life working at ExxonMobil, has no experience in government or in diplomacy. In fact, if confirmed, Tillerson would join an unprecedented and hard-to-fathom operation: in the Trump administration, the combined foreign policy experience of the president, Secretary of State, and U.S. ambassador to the United Nations is quite literally zero. Americans have simply never seen such a team.
What Tillerson has done, however, is work closely with Vladimir Putin, and spoken out in opposition to U.S. sanctions on Russia – the country accused of criminal intervention in the American political system. When making the case for Tillerson over the weekend, Trump boasted to Fox News, “He does massive deals in Russia.”

Rachel Maddow tells the backstory of Chris Christie’s criminal prosecution of Donald Trump’s son-in-law’s father, Charles Kushner and looks at new reports of the purging of Chris Christie’s work on President-elect Trump’s transition to the White House.
Per an article posted at theguardian.com “Christie’s ousting is thought to be the result of a feud with Kushner. As a federal prosecutor, Christie prosecuted Kushner’s father, Charles, who was convicted and jailed on charges of tax evasion, witness tampering and illegal campaign contributions. He got two years in jail, and was released after one. While he was in jail, Kushner took over the running of his father’s property business. Earlier this week, two more senior members of Trump’s team were sacked. They were Mike Rogers, who had been handling national security, and Matthew Freedman, a lobbyist and liaison with business and foreign governments. Both were allies of Christie”.

Spencer Ackerman, national security editor for The Guardian, talks with Rachel Maddow about concerns about connections between the Donald Trump campaign and the FBI, particularly the New York field office, and the apparent willingness of some in the FBI to politicize the bureau to help Trump.
As shown in the video, it appears that members of the FBI engaged in SMEAR Tactics to torpedo Clinton’s Presidential Campaign.
Also, Giuliani saying “I think he’s [Trump] got a surprise or two” and “We’ve got a couple things up our sleeve that should turn this around” makes it seem that Rudy Giuliani & the Trump campaign were somehow involved. Note that he says “WE’VE got a couple of things up OUR sleeves that should turn this around”
Reporter talks about Rudy Giuliani’s Connections to the FBI
The above article states “Rudy Giuliani said Friday that he knew the FBI planned to review more emails tied to Hillary Clinton before a public announcement about the investigation last week, confirming that the agency leaked information to Donald Trump’s presidential campaign”. Click here to read article
Giuliani brags about connections to reactionary FBI agents
The FBI’s “Ethics and Integrity Program” guide stipulates to its employees that they may not use “any influence arising from [their] Federal position … in concert with any campaign.” More broadly, it says, “FBI employees must never use their FBI title or position in any way to advance any particular partisan activity.”
Does leaking unflattering information about Hillary Clinton to one of Donald Trump’s top advisers count as working in concert with a campaign and/or advancing a partisan activity? It would seem that Rudy Giuliani understands that that might be the case, because when he went on Fox on Friday he denied that he’s in touch with current agents. “I’m real careful not to talk to any on-duty, active FBI agents,” he claimed, despite having attested at least twice in recent months to having done so.

As mentioned in the Rachel Maddow video at the top of this page, much of the material Donald Trump and other haters use to claim Hillary Clinton is “Crooked” and “Corrupt” appear to come from Clinton Cash. Fact checkers such as Media Matters has found Twenty-Plus Errors, Fabrications, And Distortions in the material.

Julian Assange is Wanted for Sexual Assault Charges by the Swedish Government and is reported to be evading extradition and prosecution through asylum granted by the Ecuadorian government. He is reported to be residing at the Embassy of Ecuador in London
According to various articles, Julian Assange is ‘Wanted Dead Or Alive’ by the U.S. Government and is considered to be a “high-tech” terrorist.
Julian Assange should be arrested for assisting the Russians in publishing criminally stolen documents which may help Trump get elected. If Trump is elected, Assange will be partly to blame for Women’s Rights and Freedom of Speech being destroyed in the United States. Trump has stated that Freedom of Speech should be limited and is for passing Anti-Choice Legislation. Trump has stated he will appoint Anti-Choice Judges to the Supreme Court.
Julian Assange is also helping Republicans, who has rigged two elections, engaged in voter obstruction, blocked President Obama on everything during his entire presidency, who has refused to even consider his Supreme Court Nominee, who wants to cut social security, medicaid, medicare and so many other destructive things they have done, take over the United States government.
Julian Assange is Helping a Candidate who Is a Threat to the First Amendment & Freedom of Speech
If Donald Trump is president, he has stated that he would like to make some changes to the First Amendment. In an interview with WFOR, CBS’ Miami affiliate, Trump was asked if he believes the First Amendment provides “too much protection.”
Trump answered in the affirmative, saying he’d like to change the laws to make it easier to sue media companies. Trump lamented that, under current law, “our press is allowed to say whatever they want.”

Reports that Russia is trying to disrupt our election. Is Donald Trump a Russian Agent?
The above videos show what a threat TRUMP is to the United States and the World.
As you can see from the list above, Republicans has done tremendous damage to the United States and the American people. If Trump gets Elected, it will be partly WikiLeaks Julian Assange’s Fault. He will also be Responsible for Republicans taking over the White House.
If Republicans emails were to be hacked, stolen and published for the world to see, I’m sure people would be outraged by the contents of Republican’s emails. Just imagine what could be found in Trump’s campaign emails or emails from Republican congressmen.
Assange only seems to care about his personal vendetta against Hillary, and to hell with the people of the United States who will suffer if Trump get’s elected.
Why does Julian Assange have a vendetta against Hillary? It may be because according to various reports, she called on President Obama to prosecute the Wikileaks site after its 2010 leak of State Department cables.
Hillary Clinton may not be a saint but she was the only thing stopping Donald Trump from becoming President and the Republican Party taking over our Government.
Let’s not forget that Assange conspired with Russia to influence the outcome of an election and is therefore a threat to the National Security of the United States.
Admiral Michael S. Rogers, the head of the National Security Agency and the Commander of the U.S. Cyber Command has stated “There shouldn’t be any doubt in anybody’s mind,” he says, “This was not something that was done casually. This was not something that was done by chance. This was not a target that was selected purely arbitrarily. This was a conscious effort by a nation state to achieve a specific effect” as documented in a article and video at http://theslot.jezebel.com/nsa-head-openly-accuses-russia-of-using-wikileaks-to-ge-1789051302
A recent article “Julian Assange lawyers to appeal to Donald Trump to end US probe” states “Lawyers working on behalf of Julian Assange have revealed they will appeal to US President-elect Donald Trump to end a criminal investigation into the WikiLeaks founder. If President Trump does give Julian Assange a pardon, it will be clear he’s doing a favor to Julian Assange who helped Trump get elected and it will be proof of Donald Trump’s lawlessness.

Mike Pence LIED numerous times at the VP Debate. This proves he can’t be trusted and is unfit to serve in Public Office
FACTS ABOUT MIKE PENCE
Mike Pence is Anti-Women’s Rights / Anti-Choice
Pence has instituted some of the most restrictive reproductive rights laws in the country.
Mike Pence Refused to Pardon a Wrongfully Convicted Man “out of respect for the judicial process”
Mike Pence has a Long History Attacking Social Security & Medicare
Here’s a quote from National Committee to Preserve Social Security & Medicare, President/CEO Max Richtman, about Trump picking Pence as his VP…
“By choosing Governor Mike Pence as his running mate, presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump has sent a very clear message to America’s seniors that their priorities will hold little weight in a Trump administration. During his decade-plus tenure in the U.S. Congress, Mike Pence consistently voted in favor of legislative efforts to cut benefits in Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid. He has a long history of blaming earned benefit programs for America’s economic woes and supporting middle-class benefit cuts to protect tax cuts for the wealthy. Few members of Congress have an anti-seniors voting record as consistently strong as Mike Pence.
Mike Pence was one of Congress’ biggest proponents of privatization. He supports cutting Social Security benefits by raising the retirement age, reducing the COLA, means-testing and turning Medicare into “CouponCare.” As he told CNN, ‘I’m an all of the above guy. I think we need to look at everything that’s on the menu,’ and the record shows he has done just that by supporting every form of Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid benefit cut proposed in the past decade.
The National Committee to Preserve Social Security and Medicare scored Mike Pence at 0% on issues important to seniors during the 2011-2012 Congress since he voted for multiple pieces of legislation that would cut benefits and programs that protect senior’s health and financial security.”

Mike Pence Signed a Law Legalizing Discrimination Against Gay / LGBT People.
To be clear, under the law Mike Pence signed, a business could refuse service to anyone who they THINK looks gay on the basis of being against the business owner’s religion.
Imagine being denied service because someone thinks you LOOK gay and legally being denied recourse against the person / business which did you wrong. That’s the type of country we would live in if Republicans get their way…. a country were discrimination is legal and no recourse against businesses and individuals who engage in discrimination.
FALSE STATEMENTS MADE BY PENCE
Here’s a list of False Statements made by Mike Pence which include the statement “Hillary Clinton took 13 hours to send help to Americans under fire during the terrorist attack in Benghazi”, which is a LIE – http://politifact.com/personalities/mike-pence/statements/byruling/false/
Republicans has SHAMELESSLY exploited the deaths of 4 Americans for their own political gain.
The numerous Benghazi investigations by Repubs (which cost taxpayers over 4 million dollars) has been motivated by Politics, Hate for President Obama and to “Get” Hillary Clinton.
60 Americans Died at embassies and consulates around the world under George W. Bush, versus 4 deaths under the watch of Obama / Clinton. There was no outrage and endless investigation by Republicans into the 60 Deaths under Republican George W. Bush. No one called for Bush to be prosecuted or executed.
CLEARLY, President Obama has had a much better track record of less deaths at embassies (4 versus 60) than Republicans and George W. Bush.
22 Million emails of George W. Bush were lost / deleted. There was no outrage and endless investigation by Republicans into the deletion of 22 Million emails of George W. Bush. Many other high level Republicans has used private email servers such as Colin Powell and Condoleezza Rice.
This is a prime example of what hypocrites Republicans are, making a BIG DEAL out of the 4 deaths which occurred during Obama’s Presidency while saying and doing nothing about the 60 deaths which occurred when BUSH was President and making a BIG DEAL out of Hillary using a private email server and emails lost when Republicans did the same and much worst.
This is a continuation of Republican’s irrational, pathological hate which Republican Politicians use to fire up their base so their uninformed constituents will continue voting for them so they keep their jobs and continue to do nothing for the American people.
Trump and Republicans are in no position to criticize anyone. If anyone is “crooked”, it’s Donald Trump.
Lawsuits has been filed against Trump in connection with the now defunct Trump University.
It has been reported that Trump has screwed his own contractors out of millions of dollars they were owned and much more.
Here’s a list of false statements as reported by PolitiFact – http://www.politifact.com/personalities/donald-trump/statements/byruling/false/
Donald Trump told NRA members that “Hillary Clinton wants to abolish the 2nd amendment”. That statement is a LIE and was clearly made to score points with NRA members and the Republican base who hates Hillary Clinton.
Making false statements such at this proves that he can’t be trusted and that he has no credibility.
Trump has flip flopped on many issues. This video shows him praising Hillary Clinton. He was once friendly to the Clinton’s, now he says their criminals.
Chris Cristy was the first major politician to support Trump and has been friends with Cristy for many years. Trump betrayed Cristy by selecting Pence as his running mate.
This shows that his words and loyalty to people mean nothing, and he will do and say what ever it takes to get elected.
Republican politicians are in no position to criticize Hillary Clinton either.
As an example of how LAWLESS Republicans are, Republican Governor of Florida, Jeb Bush and his administration subverted democracy by rigging the 2000 election by illegally and wrongfully purging thousands of black voters off the voter rolls. This gave his brother, George W. Bush a winning lead of only 537 votes.
If it weren’t for Jeb Bush’s illegal voter purge, Al Gore would have decisively won Florida and the 2000 election.
No charges were ever brought against Jeb and his administration even though the Civil Rights Commission recommended that he and members of his administration be prosecuted – http://www.usccr.gov/pubs/vote2000/report/ch9.htm
That rigged election ended up costing the lives of thousands of people because of George W. Bush’s disastrous Iraq war, which wouldn’t have happened if Al Gore were President. It also caused a conservative majority in the Supreme Court due to Bush’s appointments. Full details at http://republicansexposed.org/2000-election-rigged-2/
The 2004 election was rigged by Republicans in Ohio through a combination of the Ohio Election Computers being rerouted to computers in Tennessee and the votes flipped, ballot destruction and disenfranchisement of minorities. Extensive investigations produced shocking proof yet no charges were ever brought against anyone involved. Full details at http://republicansexposed.org/2004-election-stolen/
Republicans even RIGGED their own convention in 2012 as show in this video.
This shocking video shows how the Republican establishment didn’t listen to members of their own party at the 2012 Republican Convention and didn’t allow them to vote on an important rule change. The rule change was already decided by the Republican establishment and written into a teleprompter script read by Speaker of the House, John Boehner.
On January 20, 2009, the day of President Obama’s Inauguration, Republican Leaders in Congress violated their Oath of Office by plotting to obstruct President Obama on everything to make his presidency a failure, with no regard to how it would negatively affect the American people.
They voted Against Jobs Bills, Blocked Bills to our Help Veterans, Blocked Ending Tax Beaks for Companies sending Jobs Overseas, Blocked Extending Unemployment Assistance, Blocked Medical Help for 9/11 1st Responders and much more
Republicans say they are for less government but when it comes to Women’s Rights, they want the government to tell them what they can do with their own bodies. They have passed laws against women’s rights and want to completely make abortions illegal even in cases of incest or rape.
If you are one of those who hate President Obama and Hillary Clinton, you have allowed yourself to be brain washed by the Republican Establishment. To them, it’s all about maintaining power and control over the masses.
A rigged election which caused the death of Thousands of American troops and over 100,000 Iraqis is of far greater consequence than any so called “crimes” committed by Hillary Clinton.
Hillary and Democrats will make sure American’s Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, Women’s Rights and democracy is protected.
Republican’s want to take away Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, Women’s Rights, Legalize Discrimination and much more.
Here’s a list of some of the lawless, undemocratic, rotten things Republicans has done since the 2000 election. Proof of everything on this list is on this website.
These are only a few examples of how Republicans have no regard for Democracy or the will of the American people. To them, the end justifies the means as it did when they rigged the 2000 election and 2004 election for George W Bush.
Republicans have shown that they condone out right lying, character assassinations, cheating, lawless, UN-American, undemocratic conduct as long as it benefits them so they stay in power.
Today’s Republicans are a DISGRACE and have defiled the GOP Party of Lincoln.
Until they change, they ALL need to be voted out of office.

Here’s a list of false statements as reported by PolitiFact – http://www.politifact.com/personalities/donald-trump/statements/byruling/false/
According to PolitiFact, Republicans Lie Three Times More Often Than Democrats.
The study found Republicans to be less trustworthy than Democrats, based on the number of false claims made during President Obama‘s second term.
The study, by Center for Media and Public Affairs (CMPA) at George Mason University, took into account 100 PolitiFact-checked statements made by Democrats (46 claims) and Republicans (54 claims) in the first four months of Obama’s second term.
“PolitiFact rated 32% of Republican claims as “false” or “pants on fire,” compared to 11% of Democratic claims – a 3 to 1 margin. Conversely, Politifact rated 22% of Democratic claims as “entirely true” compared to 11% of Republican claims – a 2 to 1 margin”.
“A majority of Democratic statements (54%) were rated as mostly or entirely true, compared to only 18% of Republican statements. Conversely, a majority of Republican statements (52%) were rated as mostly or entirely false, compared to only 24% of Democratic statements”.
CMPA President Dr. Robert Lichter stated: “While Republicans see a credibility gap in the Obama administration, PolitiFact rates Republicans as the less credible party.”
The reason Republicans can get away with lying more than Democrats is because Republican constituents has been conditioned to not trust the “Liberal Media”. So they are more likely to not question lies from Republican politicians.
When the news media calls out Republicans lies, average Joe Republican voters feels the “Liberal Media” is picking on the person who’s lying and lets the lies slide.
