It is my understanding that Barack Obama did not appoint any Supreme court justices, but The new president will be doing so shortly. In fact it is expected that judge bader Ginsburg will be stepping down soon, and President Trump will appoint for that position, I wonder what will happen then??

Look at the image more closely. How many people do you see in the very rear? Look the right side of the gigapixel shot. Looks like 14-15 by my count. Now look at the "fake news" picture you don't like (on the left). How many people? (just count the tiny dots)



Looks to be about the same? Look down a little bit in the gigapixel. How many people do you ACTUALLY see there? A cluster on the side and a line across the front? Now let's scroll down a bit more to a part you're not showing in your image. Oh look, another mostly empty section.



Scroll down a bit more and lo and behold, another big empty section you ignore:



You're the "fake news" in this case.

And Trump's authoritarian reign begins because he's nothing but an orange baby man who is obsessed with appearances.

If they didn't do anything wrong there is not a reason to be scared. Otherwise, face justice, karma and no mercy.

Im on the line on this.

On One hand its a petty thing to get worked up about but on the other hand the media is out of control on how they spin the news with no consequence. Also not just the left but the right as well like foxnews and drudge

I do believe the media is one of the big factor why our nation is so split apart so bring this to the forefront is a good thing in waking the masses.

So, you would rather believe lies than be given the truth.

Feel free to stick your head back in the sand.

The thing is, they lie. So what you call truth is actually a lie too. Feel free to stick your head back in the sand.

Or you could learn to be objective. You're a right wing troll though so my expectations are incredibly low.

I would need the time stamp of the picture taken at trumps inauguration to see if that was all the people that came. were there more people that came? Just because we see a picture means nothing, we need to know what time that picture was taken. Maybe all the people were not there yet when that was taken. Can anyone find the real time stamp on that picture? I saw a picture from the front taken just before Trump got there and there were way more people than in the photo in the OP.

It would be pretty unusual for trump to have beaten attendance records over Obama's first inauguration, he was the first black president and there were a lot of people who came. The attendance at Obama's second inauguration was way smaller and even way smaller than Trumps from the information I looked at from a source that looks at things like this without bias.

Trump did better than bush and Clinton and Obama's second for sure. But this picture posted may be actually taken at a time they were filling up, it does not come close to what I saw on some other pictures. Obama's 2009 would have had people come real early just to make sure they got in. There is deception on both sides, we need the truth, a computer can count people but the picture has to be when both were at their fullest.

So why doesn't the time lapse show all those empty spaces being filled up? If the crowds went all the way back then those areas would be shown filling up and people streaming from them. Remember the time lapse records the people leaving the event and still the crowd doesn't go all the way back.

Looks like the Trump presidency will him whining about things that go against his ego.

His revamped slogan appears to be "Trump is Great".

Trump's first tweet as President used Obama's inauguration as background.

Variety




Twitter with comparison

It does not get any worse.

It's just more ridiculous that Sean Spicer had to go out into the press room and yell at the press core, all at Trump's behest, cause his feelies were hurt.

If Sean is going to give a press conference every time one of the networks says some crap he doesn't' like, that will be all of Sean's job. Maybe that's the point. Deflect every serious questions by making sure everybody is focused on ' the lyin' media'.

On one hand, that's genius, on the other, it's hard not to blame the media for putting themselves in this position. They are the ones who lost the faith of the people for what amounts to 20 years of clown car reporting.

You reap what you sow I guess, but Trump is most certainly going to use that to his advantage, in order to avoid talking to them as much as possible.

Unfortunately, Big Globalist Money is behind the liberal networks manipulating and moulding the minds of everyday American citizens.


Absolutely...
But.... Big Globalist Money is behind ALL networks manipulation and molding the minds of everyday American citizens.
I find it a bit myopic to think that all of this started, or ends with Soros. It goes way back before he was ever on the scene.
It is and has been BIG MONEY that is behind it all.

Big money seeks to be only one thing. Bigger money.
Once local money reaches the power limits of local money, it strives to have the power of regional money and once it becomes regional money it seeks to have the power of national money and once national money hemispheric money and on into Globalist Money. Big Money will use local, regional, national, hemispheric and global tools to ensure it's continued growth, whether those tools are liberal tools, as you so correctly point out, and or conservative tools, which you make no mention of.

Big money seeks, as you say, to mold and manipulate the minds of everyday American citizens as has been and still is gloriously demonstrated by the robust advertising industry for over a hundred years. Advertising that seeks to manipulate peoples minds into buying what it wants to sell them. Advertising that molds peoples consciousness with branding and merchandising and deeply coercive psychological tricks, convincing everyday American to 'keep up with the Jones' convincing them that they NEED things that they don't really need. Turning the wants and wishful dreams of people into the 'NEEDS' of people.

That is what I see Queen. If you don't find those thoughts to far afield of your own, may I ask you a question? If so, this may take a few sentences to do.

If we take a traditional graph of the traditional economic spectrum it lays out like this. On the right, is conservatism. Conservatism that champions the 'hidden hand' of capitalism and free enterprise. On the far left is Communism, a political system established in principle to abolish capitalism, the financial theory of conservatism. Those who defend capitalism fight against Communism on the opposite end of the spectrum. Neither you nor I, I am fairly sure, want Communism as it was manifest in the Stalinist or Maoist incarnations.

And neither does Big Money. It fights tooth and nail against Communism, a great example being the massive amounts of funds that were funneled to Hitler and his National Socialist Party by wealthy industrialist from both European and American back grounds. That money was paid out to bolster Hitler's promised bulwark against the creeping growth of socialist revolution that had already overtaken Tzarist Russia and turned it Soviet. ( National Socialist Party,by the way a title established to confuse less educated German's who might be swayed by the term Socialist and so think they were supporting a German version of the already established socialist revolution in Russia)

So, and finally here is my question, if global capital has always defended itself AGAINST Communism(it's avowed antithisis) how is it that now, to so many Americans, global capital is seen as being controlled by socialists and their weak minded flunkies, the progressives and even weaker minded liberals? Because from the context I have just expressed, it would seem to me that the opposite is true. That global capital is controlled, not by the far left of the economic spectrum, but rather the the right side of the spectrum.

I think it's good that the press has come out to defend themselves on this issue.

NBC called-out Conway on one of their shows today, pretty much calling Trump a liar on attendance.

I see American people in that photo.

The subject of Trump's tweet was the American people, all American.

...and an argument that seems to never be addressed-- 93% of the locals voted for Obama.

Perhaps the whole thing should have been moved to the Heartland.


I'm sure the optics would have been completely different.
