As It Should Be

"Obama, appearing polite and serious as he shook Trump’s hand, told the president-elect, 'We now are going to want to do everything we can to help you succeed, because if you succeed, then the country succeeds.'

Hillary Clinton: “Last night I congratulated Donald Trump and offered to work with him on behalf of our country... I still believe in America and I always will. And if you do, then we must accept this result and then look to the future. Donald Trump is going to be our president. We owe him an open mind and a chance to lead. Our constitutional democracy enshrines the peaceful transfer of power. And we don't just respect that, we cherish it."

"Asked by a reporter if Trump would ask Congress to ban Muslims from entering the country — a controversial campaign proposal — the president-elect said, 'Thank you, everyone,' and walked away."

"Protesters in U.S. cities including New York demonstrated Wednesday night with chants of 'not my president' and anti-Trump signs. The president-elect gave no indication that he noticed."

"[The Trumps and the Obamas] reconnected in the Oval Office after noon, but did not pose for an official White House group photograph, which used to be a modern-era custom.

"Later in the afternoon, Vice President Joe Biden met at the White House with Pence. The meeting was closed to the press.

"Trump and his team have bucked custom and protocol by not allowing coverage of the president-elect by a rotation of a small group of journalists known as a 'pool.' The Fourth Estate, which by custom and modern necessity reports on incoming presidents via a pool-rotation system, was rebuffed by Team Trump on Thursday. The White House Correspondents Association and its members pressed the Trump aides to adopt the pool-coverage system immediately as a part of the official transition to governing.

"Trump prides himself on his famously testy relationship with the news media. He flew to and from Washington Thursday on his private jet, declining to travel with members of the news media as presidents always do."

-from the Real Clear Politics article by Alexis Simendinger & James Arkin, Nov. 10, 2016

[bolds are my emphases]

The "Fourth Estate" press better get used to it. It's what they earned for themselves.

We may call what we now have to rely on for real truth in reporting, the Fifth Estate. HuffPo, Slate, Mother Jones, The Atlantic, you need not apply.

The headlines over the past few days may indicate some of the Fourth Estate are trying to ingratiate themselves to the new administration, but my guess is it will only be superficial:

Dems Once Represented the Working Class. Not Any More - Robert Reich, Guardian



Some select quotes that stood out: "That whistling sound you hear is the [Democratic] party Thelma-and-Louiseing." in The Washington Post.

Peggy Noonan, a conservative and not a Trump fan, in the also-not-a-fan Wall Street Journal:

"First, our democratic republic is vibrant and alive. It is not resigned. It is still capable of delivering a result so confounding it knocks you into the next room.

"Nobody rigged this. Nobody hacked it. There weren’t brawls at polling places, there was kindness and civility. At the 92nd Street Y I got to embrace three neighbors. All this in a highly charged, highly dramatic and divisive election. We did our democratic work and then went home. It all worked.

"Second, Donald Trump said he had a movement and he did. This is how you know. His presidential campaign was bad—disorganized, unprofessional, chaotic, ad hoc. There was no state-of-the-art get-out-the-vote effort—his voters got themselves out. There was no high-class, high-tech identifying of supporters—they identified themselves. They weren’t swayed by the barrage of brilliantly produced ads—those ads hardly materialized. This was not a triumph of modern campaign modes and ways. The people did this. As individuals within a movement.

"It was a natural, self-driven eruption. Which makes it all the more impressive and moving. And it somehow makes it more beautiful that few saw it coming.

"On the way home Wednesday morning I thought of my friend who runs the neighborhood shoe-repair shop. He is elderly, Italian-American, an immigrant. I had asked him last winter who would win the Republican nomination and he looked at me as if I were teasing. 'Troomp!' he instructed. I realized at that moment: In America now only normal people can see the obvious. Everyone else is lost in a data-filled fog."

Scott Adams gets the last word on Twitter who shadow-banned him during the last few months of the election cycle.

"What covering Donald Trump full-time taught a Post reporter about the president-elect", By Chris Cillizza, November 11, also in the WaPo:

"I started covering him full-time and my opinion changed. He would host these rallies and thousands of people would show up — and hardly any of them mentioned 'The Apprentice' when I asked why they liked him. He understood Republican voters in a way his party did not...One on one, Trump is kind and gracious. Twice I was called backstage so he could gush about how much he liked an article I had written about his supporters and a photo I had tweeted of his massive rally crowd."

And from the CBS piece linked above on the "Smugness" of the media:

"There’s a place for opinionated journalism; in fact, it’s vital. But our causal, profession-wide smugness and protestations of superiority are making us unable to do it well.

"Our theme now should be humility. We must become more impartial, not less so. We have to abandon our easy culture of tantrums and recrimination. We have to stop writing these know-it-all, 140-character sermons on social media and admit that, as a class, journalists have a shamefully limited understanding of the country we cover.

"What’s worse, we don’t make much of an effort to really understand, and with too few exceptions, treat the economic grievances of Middle America like they’re some sort of punchline. Sometimes quite literally so, such as when reporters tweet out a photo of racist-looking Trump supporters and jokingly suggest that they must be upset about free trade or low wages.

"We have to fix this, and the broken reasoning behind it. There’s a fleeting fun to gang-ups and groupthink. But it’s not worth what we are losing in the process."

"I would now like to say a special word to women who have had an abortion...[many are] aware of the many factors which may have influenced your decision, and [do] not doubt that it was a painful and even shattering decision. The wound in your heart may not yet have healed. Certainly what happened was and remains terribly wrong. But do not give in to discouragement and do not lose hope. Try rather to understand what happened and face it honestly. If you have not already done so, give yourselves over with humility and trust to repentance. The Father of mercies is ready to give you his forgiveness and his peace...You will come to understand that nothing is definitively lost and you will also be able to ask forgiveness from your child..."

The writings expressed herein are protected expression by virtue of the First Amendment of the United States of America and by the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, in particular Articles 18 and 19, signed by the U.S.A. in 1948:

1) The First Amendment: "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances."

"The Free Exercise Clause reserves the right of American citizens to accept any religious belief and engage in religious rituals. The wording in the free-exercise clauses of state constitutions that religious “[o]pinion, expression of opinion, and practice were all expressly protected” by the Free Exercise Clause.[1] The clause protects not just religious beliefs but actions made on behalf of those beliefs. More importantly, the wording of state constitutions suggest that “free exercise envisions religiously compelled exemptions from at least some generally applicable laws.”[2] The Free Exercise Clause not only protects religious belief and expression; it also seems to allow for violation of laws, as long as that violation is made for religious reasons."

2) Article 18 of the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights, signed by the U.S.A. in 1948, states: "Everyone has the right to freedom of thought, conscience and religion; this right includes freedom to change his religion or belief, and freedom, either alone or in community with others and in public or private, to manifest his religion or belief in teaching, practice, worship and observance."

3) Article 19 of the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights: "Everyone has the right to freedom of opinion and expression; this right includes freedom to hold opinions without interference and to seek, receive and impart information and ideas through any media and regardless of frontiers."
