Third-Party Advocates File Lawsuit Over Presidential Debates

Zeke J Miller @ZekeJMiller

June 21, 2015

A coalition of advocates for third parties in presidential elections is filing a lawsuit Monday against barriers to entry in presidential debates.

Alleging that the Federal Election Commission and the Commission on Presidential Debates have fostered a duopoly in American politics that has made it impossible for a third-party candidate to win the White House, the suit seeks to upend a decades-old debate system, while striking a blow against the 150-year Democrat-Republican regime.

Organized by the group Level the Playing Field, which sprung out of the failed 2012 third party effort “Americans Elect” and backed by multi-millionaire financier Peter Ackerman, the lawsuit includes both the Green Party and Libertarian National Committee. It comes as the American public is more dissatisfied with the traditional party system than ever before, and the prospects for fixing it are especially dim..."

The Complete History Of Donald Trump's Relationship With The White ...

"Donald Trump's presidential campaign has engaged in a disturbing courtship with the racist white nationalist movement that is unprecedented in recent American political history. That effort has taken on new life with Trump's hiring of Breitbart News chief Stephen Bannon.

Bannon oversaw Breitbart News’ attempts to normalize and embrace the white nationalist movement. As the Southern Poverty Law Center noted, Breitbart "has undergone a noticeable shift toward embracing ideas on the extremist fringe of the conservative right. Racist ideas. Anti-Muslim and anti-immigrant ideas."

White nationalist themes have been at the center of Trump's campaign since its inception. He began his campaign by smearing Mexican immigrants as violent criminals and rapists and later called for a ban on Muslim immigration, moves which endeared him to his growing white nationalist support. When Trump attacked the Mexican heritage of an American-born judge and smeared the family of a fallen Muslim-American soldier, his white nationalist fans cheered. Trump also initially refused to condemn the support of David Duke, a former Grand Wizard of the Ku Klux Klan..."

REPORT: Trump Gave $100K to Baptist Church Pastored by Anti-Gay Hate Group Leader Tony Perkins

Head of Family Research Council Tells GOP Nominee that 'Religious Freedom' is Key to Flood Relief Efforts

GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump has reportedly donated $100,000 to the Baptist church led by Tony Perkins, president of the Family Research Council, an anti-LGBT hate group. 

Trump visited the church during his trip Friday to flood-ravaged Louisiana. Perkins, who's previously blamed gay people for natural disasters, said last week that his home was heavily damaged in the flooding, and that 80 percent of the church's members were affected. 

At the church, Perkins told Trump that "the big issue" with the flooding is "religious freedom," because the government is attempting to diminish the role of churches that provide disaster relief, according to the video below. 

According to Greenwell Springs' website, the church requires all employees and volunteers to agree to a Statement of Marriage and Family, which reads in part: "We believe that any form of sexual immorality, such as adultery, fornication, homosexuality, bisexual conduct, bestiality, incest, pornography or any attempt to change one’s sex, or disagreement with one’s biological sex, is sinful and offensive to God."

I don't understand how imigration works.

I worked with a guy who married a Russian Phd with a nuclear physic degree who whas allowed into the country quickly - probably because of the Hanford Nuclear Reservation. http://www.hanford.gov/

(think Operation Paperclip)

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Operation_Paperclip

In that area there were more physicists and Russians than other parts of the country.

I worked with another guy who married a Chinese Nationalist who wasn't able to get his wife here for at least three years. I transferred before he was able to get his wife into the country so don't know how long it took, if it ever happened.

For President, the U.S.'s voting system is flawed if not broken by money in politics and the two party system.  Fortunately some communities are using different voting methods.

"

A voting system or electoral system consists of the set of rules which must be followed for a vote to be considered valid, and how votes are counted and aggregated to yield a final result. It is a method by which voters make a choice between candidates, often in an election or on a policy referendum. Common voting systems are majority rule, proportional representation or plurality voting with a number of variations and methods such as first-past-the-post or preferential voting. The study of formally defined voting systems is called social choice theory or voting theory, a subfield of political science, economics, or mathematics.

I wonder how much the 'Founding Fathers' with a republic democracy wanted citizens to be seperated from the election of the president to the point of a two party system where delagates decide who will be nominated in the Primary elections.

Why is there an electorial college for the general election?

No wonder people think their votes don't count.

There is two years of vetting before Syrians or others from that region are allowed a visa into the U.S.A.

Comment by Stephen on August 5, 2016 at 12:43am

Around 100 refugees could be moving to the American West thanks to a local group in Missoula who were inspired to help after seeing the photo of a drowned Syrian boy whose family had fled the conflict.
But people in the neighbouring rural county are not happy. A local politician told the BBC they want a guarantee refugees will not be a threat - and he warned of a culture clash between any Muslim refugees from Syria and the predominantly white local population.

And this would be Trumps vice president. Oh for crying out loud.
