As you watch, you will see that she wasn't ready
Marilyn Manson shared a brutal new clip from a music video for his song “Say10” on Election Day. In the clip, Manson pulls pages from a Bible and holds a bloody knife. Though the camera never shows any actual killing, the camera then pans to show a beheaded man, who bears a resemblance to Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump.
Though Manson wouldn’t confirm that the video is about Trump, he told The Daily Beast on the eve of Election Day, “Either way tomorrow goes, the visuals are meant to create contemplation. Because it’s obviously bigger than just tomorrow.”
He continued: “Right now we’re in such a state of confusion when it comes to religion, politics, sexuality, and how they all tie together, and it’s being turned into a circus and a sideshow – and that’s something that I’ve been described as a ringleader of. It seems like a time for me as an artist, and as an American artist, to make something that causes a new set of questions to arise that aren’t simply statements.”
trump's top choice for candidate to run the Department of Homeland Security is a bigot, a coon and a fool. Yes, I'm talking about David Clarke. This man is horrible and a cretin. He's also called Trans folk 'freakish'
Business Insider reports:
On the June 25th episode of his podcast, "The People's Sheriff," Clarke claimed that transgender Americans have mental disorders and painted them as one of several groups who live a "freakish lifestyle."
The sheriff cited Walt Heyer, a former transgender author who has called for parents of transgender Americans to be jailed.
"Folks, more evidence that transgender persons suffer from mental disorders more than physiological disorders," Clarke said, introducing a segment on his show dedicated to Heyer's columns.
"Too often in this assault on the First Amendment, and this very totalitarian attitude from the left that any freakish lifestyle, any marginal lifestyle, is now considered part of the norm, and they're shoving it down our throats. So if you're not careful when you engage in this conversation, they'll look for the trap, and they'll catch you saying something that's clumsy or not well articulated, and then they'll just attack you — they'll attack you with it. 'Transgender phobic' and all this other nonsense."

Good news... to some, maybe.
Representative Nancy Pelosi remains the House Democratic leader. She beat Representative Tim Ryan, a 43-year-old congressman from Ohio. Tim tried to blame the election loss on the party's stance on the working class. However, others didn't agree with him.
The vote for Nancy Pelosi was 134 to 63.
I'm happy for Nancy, but I would like a new method to recruit Dems. Also, I want to stop this "we loss the working class". We didn't, the WHITE working class voters are always the lost cause. I'm not sure we can ever win them back because they consistently vote against their own interest.
Plus, with sexist and racist views highly present in their hearts... I just don't know.

Art Sisneros, a Republican member of the Electoral College, decided to take a stand against trump. Instead of voting for him, he resigned his post.
“I believe to resign is to honor the intent of the pledge as it relates to the people of my district,” Texas elector Art Sisneros wrote in a blog post. “Since I can’t in good conscience vote for Donald Trump, and yet have sinfully made a pledge that I would, the best option I see at this time is to resign my position as an Elector.”
Sisneros’ decision to step aside comes as some members of the Electoral College face mounting pressure from voters and advocacy groups to flip their votes against Trump, even if he won the popular vote in their states.
In his post, Sisneros argued that casting his vote for Trump would “bring dishonor to God,” and said that political parties and “winner-take-all” states destroyed the original intention of the Electoral College. Sisneros said in August that he was considering voting against Trump if the real estate mogul were to win the popular vote in Texas. But he told Politico Monday that he would instead resign.
The rest of the country’s 538 electors will choose Sisneros’ replacement when they convene on Dec. 19 to officially elect Trump as the next president. All of Texas’ 38 electoral votes are expected to go to Trump, who beat Hillary Clinton in the state by more than 800,000 votes.
“The people will get their vote,” Sisneros wrote. “I will sleep well at night knowing I neither gave in to their demands nor caved to my convictions. I will also mourn the loss of our republic.”

From the NYT
At least eight people were taken to the hospital on Monday morning after a shooting was reported on the campus of Ohio State University, according to officials at the Columbus Division of Fire. Campus authorities urged students to take shelter and “Run Hide Fight,” before saying the scene had been secured about 90 minutes later.More to come
The episode was reported near Watts Hall, a building at the heart of the university’s sprawling Columbus campus that houses materials science and engineering programs. Heavily armed SWAT teams could be seen making their way up a stairwell of a nearby parking garage, and two people were taken away in handcuffs.
The university’s instructions — “Run Hide Fight” — stem from a public awareness campaign that is used in cities, universities and even by the Department of Homeland Security, which includes those instructions on its “active shooter preparedness” webpage. The Ohio State University includes it in its own page on active shooting situations.
Fire department officials reported that eight people had been transported to nearby hospitals, including one in critical condition, but did not say if any were being treated for gunshot wounds. Officials at the Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center said four of the wounded were being treated there, none of whom had life-threatening injuries.
At 11:32 a.m., the campus emergency alert system texted: “Shelter in Place lifted. Scene is now secure. ALL classes are canceled on Columbus campus for the remainder of the day.” A university spokesman did not immediately respond to a message seeking further details, but students took to Twitter posting photos from inside barricaded classrooms.
