Unity Through Solutions will complement its own coverage of POTUS Trump with other materials not telling our readers the source till the end so today …

President Trump’s executive orders and other early policies are coming out at a dizzying pace. Here at The Watch, we’ll do our best to keep a running tally of those pertaining to civil liberties and criminal justice, as well as a catalog of the Trump administration’s lies, falsehoods, and misdirection.

  • So 78 percent of Trump supporters think crime went up under the Obama administration. It dropped by about 20 percent.
  • Professor tells Trump to deport him before his Iranian Ph.D. students.
  • Trump also plans to publish a weekly list of crimes committed by immigrants. The idea is similar to the “Black Crime” section at Breitbart, which of course was formerly run by Trump aide Steve Bannon. Oh, and Nazi Germany did the same thing with Jews.
  • While we’re on the subject, it’s worth noting again that immigrants — including undocumented immigrants — are less likely to commit crimes than native-born citizens.
  • Bannon, meanwhile, told the New York Times this week that the media should “keep its mouth shut.” Presumably, he’d grant an exception to reports of crimes committed by black people or immigrants.
  • Here’s why Trump’s proposed ban on “sanctuary cities” is unconstitutional.
  • The Mexican-American border is nearly 2,000 miles long. This video demonstrates just how difficult it will be to wall it off.
  • Trump claims that two people were shot dead during President Obama’s farewell speech in Chicago. It isn’t true.
  • In his interview with ABC News this week, Trump claimed that Chicago PD was too “politically correct.” If you’ve read the Justice Department report on the department, that’s just a laughable assertion. Here are other reasons why it’s wrong.
  • Trump’s plan to ban immigrants from certain Muslim-majority countries excludes such countries in which he has business ties. I’m sure this is merely a coincidence.
  • Seven months ago, Obama appointed the first outsider to head up the Border Patrol. Mark Morgan’s appointment came after multiple reports of abuse and corruption within the agency. His reform efforts were extremely unpopular with the Border Patrol union. That union endorsed Trump last year. This week, Trump fired Morgan.
  • On Thursday, Trump claimed that murders in Philadelphia are “just terribly increasing.” They’ve been consistently decreasing — a 30 percent drop over the past 10 years, according to the Philadelphia police.
  • Reason’s Jacob Sullum writes that it’s possible that these aren’t all actually lies — that it’s possible that Trump really believes what he says. And that may be more frightening still.
  • In explaining why he believes there was voter fraud in the election, Trump apparently told staffers that pro golfer Bernhard Langer told him that when he went to vote, he saw voters who “did not look as if they should be allowed to vote,” after which Trump “threw out the names of Latin American countries that the voters might have come from.” In addition to the overt racism here, there’s also the problem that Langer is a German citizen, and ineligible to vote.

Trump Tax Strategy Revealed

Trump Tax Strategy Revealed
We all hate taxes and use every lawful mechanism available to reduce our liability if we have taxable income or above minimum requirements.  Presumably, Mr. Trump has utilized legal tax laws to justify a 915MM dollar net operating loss carry-forward to reduce his future liabilities although we do not know if these numbers are accurate without an audit being performed that is shared with the American public.  This audit could become a case study of why our Internal Revenue er, Federal Reserve tax code must be thrown out.  Clearly the Clinton, Cuban, Bush, Kennedy, Buffet, Gates families are also exempt through creative tax avoidance strategies or else they would not have foundations to shield their income.  This election should become a referendum against any legacy or high net family foundation who avoids our tax system through these provisions.  This writer submits that Congress enacts laws that protect the privileged, including themselves, at the expense of the American people.  The time has come to throw out the IRS and all its political corruption and enact a flat tax on consumption.  We have the technology to do so and the time has come for every American to contribute our fair share to this great nation our forefathers fought to bestow upon us, everyone.

Ms. Clinton says ……..

Ms. Clinton says ……..
“If you’re feeling like you’re consigned to, you know, being a barista, or you know, some other job that doesn’t pay a lot, and doesn’t have some other ladder of opportunity attached to it, then the idea that maybe, just maybe, you could be part of a political revolution is pretty appealing.”  Apparently, she believes our millennials should be paid to be a revolutionary but I have no idea where she believes she can produce the funds for a job like that.  America is reeling from the Bush-Clinton era of political gamesmanship and it is certainly time for a political revolution but not one including the Clintons, any other legacy family dynasty or career incumbents.  The time for throwing everyone who has lived off the US taxpayer teat for more than 8 years should be fired and their benefits package rescinded.  The American 99% have not received value for their taxes accordingly time to change the guard ………. let us start by enjoying the fact that America denied her the opportunity to the total ruin as would have surely be the case if she had been awarded the White House.
