I hope this is widely covered by the press.

Patriotic Americans of all stripes need to see what we're up against.

Somebody should really be out there selling those idiots some magic beans or something. They're missing an opportunity to exploit that many absolute idiots gathered in one clot like that...

Our Orlando Sentinel endorsement for president in 2020: Not Donald Trump | Editorial

Donald Trump is in Orlando to announce the kickoff of his re-election campaign.

We’re here to announce our endorsement for president in 2020, or, at least, who we’re not endorsing: Donald Trump.

Some readers will wonder how we could possibly eliminate a candidate so far before an election, and before knowing the identity of his opponent.

Because there’s no point pretending we would ever recommend that readers vote for Trump.

After 2½ years we’ve seen enough.

Enough of the chaos, the division, the schoolyard insults, the self-aggrandizement, the corruption, and especially the lies.

So many lies — from white lies to whoppers — told out of ignorance, laziness, recklessness, expediency or opportunity.

Trump’s capacity for lying isn’t the surprise here, though the frequency is.

It’s the tolerance so many Americans have for it.

There was a time when even a single lie — a phony college degree, a bogus work history — would doom a politician’s career.

Not so for Trump, who claimed in 2017 that he lost the popular vote because millions of people voted illegally (they didn’t). In 2018 he said North Korea was no longer a nuclear threat (it is). And in 2019 he said windmills cause cancer (they don’t). Just last week he claimed the media fabricated unfavorable results from his campaign’s internal polling (it didn’t).


According to a Washington Post database, the president has tallied more than 10,000 lies since he took office.

Trump’s successful assault on truth is the great casualty of this presidency, followed closely by his war on decency.

Trump insults political opponents and national heroes alike with middle-school taunts. He demonstrates no capacity for empathy or remorse. He misuses his office to punish opponents, as when he recently called for a boycott of AT&T to get even with his least favorite media outlet, CNN. He tears down institutions, once airily suggesting the U.S. should try having a leader for life as China now allows. He seems incapable of learning a lesson, telling an ABC interviewer last week — just two months after Robert Mueller’s report on election interference was released — that he would accept dirt on an opponent from Russia or China.

Trump has diminished our standing in the world. He reneges on deals, attacks allies and embraces enemies.

This nation must never forget that humiliating public moment in Helsinki in 2018 when the president of the United States chose to accept Vladimir Putin’s denials of Russian interference in the 2016 election over the unanimous assessment of the American intelligence community.

Such a betrayal by a U.S. president would have been the unforgivable political sin in normal times.

As if that’s not enough, Trump declares his love for North Korea’s Kim Jong-un, a genuine villain who starves and enslaves his people and executes his enemies with antiaircraft guns and flamethrowers.

But he wrote the president a “beautiful letter.” Flattery will get you everywhere with this president, and that’s dangerous.

Domestically, the president’s signature issue — immigration — has moved in fits and starts. Happily, he abandoned pursuing an outright — and unconstitutional — ban on Muslims entering the U.S., opting instead to restrict travel for people from a handful of nations, most of them majority Muslim.

He’s tried separating families, sending troops to the border and declaring a national emergency. For all of that, illegal border crossings are, as the president himself calls it, at crisis levels.

He blames House Democrats because casting blame is Trump’s forte. But Republicans controlled the House and the Senate for two full years. That seemed like an ideal time to fix what the president believes ails our immigration laws.

Even with Democrats now controlling the House, where is Trump’s much-touted deal-making mojo, an attribute he campaigned on?

“But the economy!”

Yes, the market has done well since Trump’s election.

The S&P 500 was up about 21% between Trump’s inauguration and May 31 of his third year in office. Under President Obama, it was up about 56% in that same period.

Unemployment is headed down, as it was during seven straight years under Obama.

Wages are up, and that’s a welcome change. But GDP increases so far are no better than some periods under Obama. Deficit spending under Obama was far too high, in part because of the stimulus needed to dig out of the Great Recession. Under Trump, it’s still headed in the wrong direction, once again pushing $1 trillion even though the economy is healthy.

Trump seems to care nothing about the deficit and the national debt, which once breathed life into the Tea Party.

Through all of this, Trump’s base remains loyal. Sadly, the truest words Trump might ever have spoken was when he said he could shoot someone on Fifth Avenue and not lose his supporters.

This non-endorsement isn’t defaulting to whomever the Democrats choose. This newspaper has a history of presidential appointments favoring Republicans starting in the mid-20th century. Except for Lyndon Johnson in 1964, the Sentinel backed Republican presidential nominees from 1952 through 2004, when we recommended John Kerry over another four years of George W. Bush.

As recently as 2012 we recommended Republican Mitt Romney because of what seemed at the time to be Obama’s failure to adequately manage the nation’s finances.

If — however unlikely — a Republican like Romney, now a senator from Utah, or former Ohio Gov. John Kasich successfully primaried the president, we would eagerly give them a look. Same if an independent candidate mounted a legitimate campaign.

We’d even consider backing Trump if, say, he found the proverbial cure for cancer or — about as likely — changed the essence of who he is (he won’t).

The nation must endure another 1½ years of Trump. But it needn’t suffer another four beyond that.

We can do better. We have to do better.

Any opponent of Trump will cure cancer by removing the toxic orange tumor from our house once and for all.

DJT tells so many lies, that it was suggested on Twitter that, instead of remarking on his lies, someone should report a total truth that comes out of his mouth. It would be a shorter list than naming all the lies.

Yeah, Mississippi staying stupid was pretty much a foregone conclusion. Republicans got their stupid Baptists leashed and they'll obligingly go wherever they're led, while they keep wondering why they never get raises and how come meemaw and junior are dying of cancer from having 38 times the national allowance of arsenic and 23 times the allowance of trihalomethanes in the water, and every other fuck-you-stupid that Republicans grind in the face of their base because they know they don't even have to try to do better -- you treat cattle like cattle. Just as stupid as goddamn fuck, the people in this state, and they'll not only not listen if you try to wise their dumb pumpkinhead asses up, they'll fight you for making them question themselves.

Eventually they'll die off -- and at a quicker rate given what Tate Reeves is going to do to their health care -- but until then Mississippi's going to stay conservative and bovine-stupid. I feel bad for the 48 percent or so who wised up and tried to avoid this, but those Tater voters are gonna deserve every bit of sorrowful misery that's headed their way.

Will your vote count? Veil of secrecy makes it impossible for Florida voters to know


Florida’s March 17 presidential primary will be a referendum on state and county elections officials’ efforts to build a wall to stop hacking attempts that are constantly bombarding the system.

At a time when 59 percent of the public doesn't trust the election process, state elections officials have thrown a veil of secrecy over that work, refusing to disclose details about the weaknesses detected in their systems and whether they’ve been fixed.

Florida has doubled down on secrecy since federal officials reported at least four counties were hacked in 2016. The state forced all 67 elections supervisors to sign nondisclosure agreements before they could receive federal funding for elections security, be briefed about vulnerabilities found by cybersecurity experts or even hook up to the state’s voter registration system.

“It just felt coerced,” said Polk County Supervisor of Elections Lori Edwards, a former member of the Legislature. “We have a broad public records law for a reason, so having to sign a nondisclosure agreement didn’t sit well with me … not only to receive funds, but information too.”

The far-reaching confidentiality pacts, including a nondisclosure agreement that public records experts call bizarre and unenforceable, threaten to make a casualty out of transparency in the Sunshine State.

Because of the bureaucratic shroud the state has pulled over its voting systems, Florida residents still don’t know:

Which four counties were hacked in 2016 by Russian intelligence operatives
What vulnerabilities the state discovered through a risk assessment and whether they've been fixed

Where $18 million in federal and state taxpayer dollars went that were intended to address those weaknesses
Which vendors got that money.

“Transparency is key," said Anthony J. Ferrante, global head of cybersecurity and senior managing director for Washington, D.C.-based FTI Consulting, an independent global business advisory firm. "It is important for every voter to know they have accessibility, integrity and reliability and that their vote is reported and true and accurate."

Without that transparency, residents will lack confidence their votes will count, said Ben Wilcox, research director for the nonprofit ethics watchdog Integrity Florida. 

"If there is a complete lack of confidence in the integrity of the voting system, it will have a chilling effect," Wilcox said. "If people become so cynical that the election is predetermined or hacked by foreign countries ... then people may not vote."

A recent Gallup poll showed only 40 percent of Americans trust the election system, up from 30 percent in 2016.

Keeping secrets also doesn't help get “the additional resources to harden networks,” create backup systems and “make sure people can’t hack into our systems,” said U.S. Rep. Stephanie Murphy, a Democrat whose congressional district includes Orlando. Murphy and fellow Florida Rep. Michael Waltz, a Republican, have introduced legislation that would require federal officials to immediately notify state and local officials and members of Congress if an election system is hacked.

“We are not able to do that because of the lack of transparency with what happened in 2016," Murphy said. "We are victims of an info war."

Florida's official veil of secrecy
When it comes to patching up those vulnerabilities, Florida officials would rather tell residents to trust them than show what they’ve done. Too much specific information would just make it easier for foreign agents to access voter information, they say.

“I find Florida to be probably the most secretive state as far as not telling people where these hacks occurred. It only fuels the symptoms of suspicion,” said William Theobald, who writes about election security at the national level for The Fulcrum, an online news organization funded by nonprofits including the Hewlett Foundation.

"It’s the opposite of what they ought to be doing, and it seems like they are protecting local supervisors of elections from embarrassment,” Theobald said.

Florida’s heightened need for security is fueled by daily attacks and ever-present threats of future hacks, something state officials became aware of only after the 2016 elections.

“Every single day, foreign and domestic actors attempt to penetrate our network,” Secretary of State Laurel Lee, a lawyer and former judge who was appointed a year ago by Gov. Ron DeSantis, told the USA TODAY Network – Florida.

To fight those breaches, DeSantis in June reauthorized $2.3 million left over from a $15.1 million federal election security grant that Congress had approved the year before. That money was in addition to $2.8 million approved by the Legislature last session for election security.

As more information came out about the extent of the 2016 hacking, the federal government declared elections systems to be critical infrastructure. With that designation came a heightened need for confidentiality.

The FBI made DeSantis and Lee sign nondisclosure agreements, or NDAs, before being briefed on which Florida counties were hacked. And despite promising as much transparency as possible, Lee created a bureaucratic wall of paperwork to control the flow of money and information.
