Hope Hicks Is Trump's Next Communications Director: , Trump Make Is Move To Beef His Public Rlations Campian

Hope Hicks, 28, may be named President Donald Trump's White House communications director shortly. But before joining Trump's campaign, she had no political experience.

Hicks was born in Greenwich, a town of 60,000 on the southwest tip of Connecticut that's a favorite spot for hedge-fund headquarters.

She was a model, actress, and lacrosse player as a child, before getting her English degree at Southern Methodist University.

Hicks didn't intend on playing such a large role in a presidential campaign, instead falling into the gig through a job at the Trump Organization.

But she now finds herself as one of Trump's youngest advisers, serving as his new interim communications director in the White House.

And Hicks has been with Trump — to use his words — "from the beginning." She stuck on his campaign through several staff revamps, including two high-profile changes at the campaign-chair position.
Here's what we know about Hicks.

Hicks' first brush with the Trumps came in 2012 when she was at the public-relations firm Hiltzik Strategies working on Ivanka Trump's fashion line. Trump's eldest daughter hired Hicks away in 2014 and she became an employee of the Trump Organization.

In January 2015, Trump called Hicks into his office on the 26th floor of Trump Tower and told her she was joining his presidential campaign. "I think it’s 'the year of the outsider.' It helps to have people with outsider perspective," Hicks said Trump told her.

Hicks didn't have any political experience, but her public-relations roots run deep. Both grandfathers worked in PR, and her father, Paul, was the NFL's executive vice president for communications and public relations. He was also a town selectman from 1987 to 1991. Greenwich proclaimed April 23, 2016, as Paul B. Hicks III Day.

She still flies below the radar, directing the spotlight back on Trump. The then president-elect called her up to the microphone to speak at a "Thank You" rally in December.

It's been said she can act as a sort of Trump whisperer, understanding his many moods and professionally executing what needs to be done. She still only calls him "Sir" or "Mr. Trump."

Leftists Attack Trump as “Hitler” after the President’s Boy Scouts Speech,





Image result for F.D.R “Hitler

Hitler and Roosevelt in Hamburg, 1934

 or much of the campaign, we were subjected to redundant and ridiculous assertions that President Trump and/or his policies were fascist, reminiscent of Nazi Germany, or even the next Hitler. Thankfully most of those thoughtless charges seemed to vanish after the election…until now. President Trump’s address to the National Boy Scout Jamboree on Monday evening was used by liberals as an opportunity to inappropriately compare him to Hitler.
For their information Presidents have been addressing the Boy Scout Jamboree since FDR in 1937. As a former Boy Scout myself I remember that each President of The United States serves as the honorary president of the Boy Scouts of America and that’s the reason every president is invited to address the Jamboree.

A man accused of allowing 10 people to bake to death inside a sweltering trailer on Sunday is set to appear in court Monday afternoon -- while many of his alleged victims remained in the hospital recovering from the injuries they sustained during the botched human smuggling mission.

Federal prosecutors said they planned to bring charges against James Mathew Bradley Jr., 60, of Clearwater, Fla., who is due to appear in federal court at 11 a.m. local time.

5 Times Democrats Tried To Work With The Russians To Swing Elections



The Left has been screaming for Donald Trump Jr.'s head after it became known that he met with a Russian government attorney with the intent of obtaining opposition research on Hillary Clinton. While this was wrong (but not illegal), the Democrats aren't really in a position to lecture about Russia collusion since their party has a history of attempting to work with the Russians to swing elections.
Here are five times Democrats attempted to work with Russia to influence elections.
1. Former Sen. Ted Kennedy (D-MA) twice reached out to the Soviet Union for election help. According to Michael Reagan, Sen. John Tunney (D-CA), at the behest of his friend Ted Kennedy, lobbied the Soviet Union "to sabotage [Jimmy] Carter's foreign policy efforts," as this was during Kennedy's primary challenge against Carter in 1980. 
"One 1980 document stated that Kennedy offered to condemn President Carter’s policy toward the Soviet occupation of Afghanistan in exchange for KGB help," wrote Reagan. "News accounts of that period prove that Kennedy did, in fact, openly criticize Carter's Afghanistan policy."
Additionally, in 1983 Kennedy reached out to the Soviet Union in an attempt to undermine Ronald Reagan's foreign policy and weaken his re-election prospects in 1984, even going as far as offering to set up television interviews in America in order to make the Soviets come across as more "peaceful."

2. In 2012, Barack Obama said to Dmitry Medvedev, the Russian president at the time: "After my election I have more flexibility." This now infamous quote was from a hot mic; Obama was telling Medvedev that at that time he just needed Vladimir Putin, who had won Russia's presidential election earlier that month, "to give me space" on Russia-related issues until after his election. Medvedev told Obama, "I will transmit this information to Vladimir, and I stand with you."
During one of the 2012 presidential debates, Obama snarkily said to Mitt Romney, "The 1980s are now calling to ask for their foreign policy back because the Cold War's been over for 20 years." Obama won re-election, and Putin proceeded to take advantage of Obama's "flexibility" with his invasion of the Crimea and calling the shots in Syria.
3. Jimmy Carter tried to work with the Soviets during the 1980 election to improve his chances against Ronald Reagan. Michael Reagan also noted in his column that Carter, through his political ally Armand Hammer, lobbied for the Soviet Union to let "Jewish 'refuseniks' emigrate to Israel" to strengthen Carter's standing in important states, but the Soviets rebuffed Carter.

Interestingly, Reagan biographer Craig Shirley wrote in one of his books that during the 1976 election the Soviet Union "had made overtures to the Carter campaign," even going as far as suggesting "that they could possibly pursue policies that could affect the outcome of the election so as to favor Carter."
4. Bill Clinton pledged to support Russian President Boris Yeltsin in 1996 if Yeltsin agreed "to clear up 'negative' issues." The Washington Times unearthed a confidential memo in 1996 that revealed the following:
President Clinton, in a private meeting at the recent anti-terrorism summit, promised Boris Yeltsin he would back the Russian president's re-election bid with "positive" U.S. policies toward Russia.
In exchange, Mr. Clinton asked for Mr. Yeltsin's help in clearing up "negative" issues such as the poultry dispute between the two countries, according to a classified State Department record of the meeting obtained by The Washington Times.
Mr. Clinton told Mr. Yeltsin that "this is a big issue, especially since about 40 percent of U.S. poultry is produced in Arkansas. An effort should be made to keep such things from getting out of hand," the memo said.

Bill Gertz, who reported on the memo and is now an editor for the Washington Free Beacon and a columnist for The Washington Times, explained that the memo "exposed the Bill Clinton style of leadership—going to bat for his political donors and other vested interests in his home state of Arkansas."

5. When Tip O'Neill was Speaker of the House, he wanted the Soviets on the Democrats' side during the 1984 election. According to Michael Reagan, O'Neill told the Soviet Union's ambassador to the United States, Anatoly Dobrynin, "that it was in everyone’s best interests if the Soviets would help the Democrats keep 'that demagogue Reagan' from being re-elected."
"O'Neill warned Dobrynin that the 'primitive instincts' of this 'dangerous man' would plunge the world into war," wrote Reagan.
Each of these examples, with the possible exception of the Clinton-Yeltsin one, were easily worse than Trump Jr. agreeing to a meeting with a Russian government lawyer for dirt on Hillary Clinton. Again, this does not excuse Trump Jr's sleazy behavior, but it does show that the Democrats are more than happy to do the same thing when it helps their side.

 http://www.csmonitor.com/USA/Elections/2012/1107/Voting-machine-glitches-How-bad-was-it-on-Election-Day-around-the-country, we go to 2000 bush v gore In the 2000 election, especially in the disputed recounts in Florida, there were issues concerning the ambiguities and uncertainties that arose from punch-card ballots, such as the hanging chads (incompletely punched holes). In 2004, the punch-card ballots were still widely used in some states.[32] For example, most Ohio voters used punch-card ballots,[33] and more than 90,000 ballots cast in Ohio were treated as not including a vote for President; this "undervote" could arise because the voter chose not to cast a vote or because of a malfunction of the punch-card system

on let move on to 2004  1. Theories that the Bush administration rigged the 2004 election are widespread on the Internet, with Robert Kennedy Jr. among the most notable figures to promote this view. Elements of the conspiracy include purging Democratic voters from the rolls, engineering long lines at Democratic precincts, and even deliberately rigging computerized vote machines to take votes from Kerry and give them to Bush. Theories mostly focus on the state of Ohio, which would have won Kerry the presidency had he cobbled together 120,000 additional votes.
But the supposed evidence of Bush’s theft is full of holes, and rigorous investigations of the evidence have found no evidence of systematic fraud, relegating these theories firmly in the realm of the conspiratorial. Evidently, though, it’s a conspiracy the Secretary of State at least partially buys into.

3.San Diego, CA, August 10, 2009 -- Computer scientists demonstrated that criminals could hack an electronic voting machine and steal votes using a malicious programming approach that had not been invented when the voting machine was designed.

4 on let talk a look at 2012 .US election 2012: voting machine 'changes vote for Barack Obama to Mitt Romney'

An electronic voting machine was taken out of service on Tuesday after being captured on video changing a vote for President Barack Obama into one for Mitt Romney. 

 Voting-machine glitches: How bad was it on Election Day around the country?





Long lines were created at polling places around the country because of a broad spectrum of voting-machine glitches on Election Day.

Electronic voting-machine jams, breakdowns, and glitches were strewn across the Election Night landscape, creating long lines when machines simply broke down.

In at least one case, a viral YouTube video purported to show a Pennsylvania machine "flipping" a vote cast for President Obama into a vote for Mitt Romney.
Vote flipping occurs when an e-voting touch-screen machine is not properly calibrated, so that a vote for Romney or Obama is flipped to the other candidate. While the Pennsylvania glitch was reported and the machine reportedly taken out of service and quickly recalibrated, other flipping was reported by news media accounts in Nevada, Texas, North Carolina, and Ohio.

6..Many took to Twitter to complain about broken machines, including those voting in Michigan, North Carolina, Texas, Columbia and San Francisco. Most complaints have come from New York and Detroit. ProPublica also reported issues across Illinois, Kentucky and Ohio. The Tennessean reported issues this morning too.
It seems some failures were down to depressingly familiar battery issues...
And even where paper ballots were handed over, mistakes were made, said one voter:

.Donald Trump claimed the voting system was 'rigged' just hours before polls closed - and said machines were switching people's votes from Republicans to Democrats.

The dramatic intervention by the Republican candidate came as reports mounted of problems at polls, including voter intimidation, machines not working, and long lines.

There were reports in both Butler County and Lebanon County in Pennsylvania, that automated voting machines would switch a Republican ticket to the Democratic selection instead.

And in one county in Utah 75 per cent of machines simply would not switch on. 
Trump used an afternoon interview with Fox News to highlight these reports - a move which lays the ground for a challenge to the result and the possibility he may not concede defeat.

'It's largely a rigged system. And you see it at the polling booths,' Trump said. 
'There are reports that when people vote for Republicans the entire ticket switches over to Democrats,' he said.
7..US Elections 2016: Voting Machine Problems Reported in Many States
Washington: People in numerous states in the US reported problems voting due to faulty machines, media reports said.

Paper poll books were being used on Tuesday, heavily in Democratic Durham County, North Carolina, after a software glitch mistakenly showed that some voters had already cast their ballots, New York Daily News reported.

North Carolina Board of Elections lawyer Josh Lawson said that no "nefarious activity" was detected and it was likely due to the system not being cleared out from the primaries in the hotly contested battleground.

Some Machines Are Flipping Votes, But That Doesn't Mean They're Rigged


8.Norden thinks the real problem is that voting machines used in much of the country are old, more than 10 years in most places. The machines rely on outdated technology — some of it is from the 1990s — to calibrate the touch screens. And the hardware is starting to wear out.
