Democrats Push For Electoral College Reform After Hillary Clinton’s Popular Vote Victory

At a forum on Capitol Hill hosted by Rep. John Conyers Jr. (D-Mich.), the chair of the House Judiciary Committee, several Democrats from populous states argued the Electoral College is an outdated form of electing a president ― one that was originally devised as a compromise to protect the power of slave-owning states. Democratic lawmakers hailing from states like California, New York, Virginia and Texas argued the balance of power unfairly skewed toward smaller, less populous states, and said that battleground states carried disproportionate influence in presidential elections. In the entire 2016 election, for example, almost every appearance by both candidates occurred in just 12 states. “Under our current system, the votes of millions of people in non-swing states are effectively lost when they vote for the candidate who loses their state because all of that state’s electoral votes will be given to the other candidate,” Conyers said in his opening statement. In most states, whichever candidate wins a majority of the popular vote wins all of the state’s electoral votes. Only two states ― Nebraska and Maine ― do not follow the winner-takes-all rule. Rep. Steve Cohen (D-Tenn.), who has introduced a constitutional amendment that would eliminate the Electoral College in favor of a direct election, suggested distributing electoral votes by congressional district. “They’re Americans, even if they live on the coast,” Cohen said of Americans who reside on the country’s Pacific and Atlantic coasts. But Rep. Bobby Scott (D-Va.) cautioned about the unintended consequences of electing a president via “gerrymandered districts.” So-called gerrymandered districts are intentionally drawn so as to give one political party an advantage, and they remain prevalent across the country. Rep. Zoe Lofgren (D-Calif.) noted that the Golden State, where votes are still being counted and where Clinton won by a historic margin, sent a disproportionate amount of tax dollars to the federal government compared to smaller states, which are net recipients of federal tax dollars. “I don’t think we can sustain our American democracy by having the majority ruled by the minority,” she said. During the Nov. 8 election, Trump ran up margins in small cities and rural areas, turning out white working class voters in states like Michigan, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania and Ohio. He also outperformed in rural areas of battleground states like Florida and North Carolina, both of which he won. Proposed solutions to Electoral College reform discussed at the forum included abolishing the system entirely, scrapping the winner-take-all rule in states, pursuing a constitutional amendment, and seeking to form some sort of interstate compact where states award electoral votes collectively to the candidate who wins the national popular vote. One such plan, the National Popular Vote initiative, has been enacted into law in 11 states with 165 electoral votes. But it needs to be passed by states with 105 more electoral votes in order to take effect. A new nonprofit, called One Nation One Vote, announced Tuesday it would work to help move the plan across the finish line. It also called on President Barack Obama to endorse the NPV before he leaves office. Akhil Reed Amar, a professor of constitutional law at Yale University who testified before the panel, said an interstate compact was needed in order to uphold the principle of “one person, one vote.” The NPV would ensure that “everyone is a swing voter, whether you are a urban voter in Houston, Texas or a rural voter in the rural valley of California,” he said at the forum. Jamie Raskin, a professor of constitutional law who in November won his bid for Congress in Maryland, noted that past attempts to amend the constitution were most successful when they originated within the states. “This is the way major political changes have happened. The states do it first,” he said of the NPV initiative. Even though no Republican members of Congress attended the forum, Democrats might find a receptive ear for reform in the White House come January. A week after his stunning victory, Donald Trump said he’d prefer electing the president via popular vote, and even claimed he could have won the election if he had campaigned in larger states like California and New York. “I would rather see it where you went with simple votes,” he said in an interview with CBS’ “60 Minutes.” “You know, you get 100 million votes, somebody else gets 90 million votes, and you win. There’s a reason for doing this because it brings all the states into play―[the] Electoral College―and there’s something very good about that. This is a different system, but I respect it.” -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.

Dems resigned to Pelosi as they brace for Trump

What’s old is new again for House Democrats. After weeks of intra-party turmoil and a rank-and-file revolt, Democrats trudged back into the Capitol on Monday night to finish their leadership elections, wrap up a week of last-minute legislative work and travel home for the holidays until a new Congress next year. But even before Monday night's elections for the final few open spots, lawmakers know they're heading into the next Congress (and Donald Trump’s Washington) with the same top leadership cadre that’s led them, for years, in the minority. Publicly, Democrats say it’s the message, not the messengers, that resulted in their dismal Election Day drubbing. They only picked up six seats — barely a ripple in Republicans’ historic House majority — despite months of boastful, big-pickup forecasts. Privately, several members say they’re just resigned to the fact that long-time Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) will run the show however long she feels like it, until she wants to leave. “She’ll be there as long as she wants,” said Rep. Kurt Schrader (D-Ore.), who backed challenger Tim Ryan (D-Ohio) in the race for Pelosi's job last week. The mood of the caucus is “frustrated, upset, resigned,” he added, but at this point, ready to move on. Ryan got 63 votes to Pelosi’s 134, earning the support of one-third of the caucus, enough to wound but not topple the long-time Democratic leader. In a nod to frustrated members, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi created a handful of leadership positions aimed at giving more junior members higher-profile roles in the caucus. Members who wanted her deposed say those changes — particularly forcing the chairman of House Democrats’ campaign arm to be subject to a caucus vote — will go a long way toward making the caucus more “'little d' democratic” as one lawmaker said. “The [changes] may seem to be less consequential than a wholesale change in leadership but I think there is a consequential change in just the way members view themselves. There’s a much stronger sense that members are going to speak up,” said Rep. Dan Kildee (D-Mich.). “Some of these changes, I think, are going to be more than cosmetic. I think there’s going to be some serious differences in the way we operate going forward, much more inclusive,” he added. But while the surface of the caucus is changing, the foundation is still very much the same. The principals — Pelosi, Minority Whip Steny Hoyer (D-Md.) and Assistant Leader Jim Clyburn (D-S.C.), all septuagenarians — are staying in their long-held posts. “Everybody knows what you’re going to get with respect to Nancy and Steny and Jim,” Rep. John Larson (D-Conn.) said. “Our leadership has been older. But they certainly have done their work. Notwithstanding, you’ve got to take a look at things, you’ve gotta see how you can do things differently," he added. "That’s why I say the caucus is where things are going to change.” And Monday night Democrats are set to re-elect Rep. Ben Ray Luján (D-N.M.) to lead House Democrats’ campaign arm for another cycle. Luján is running unopposed for the position, even after members pushed to make the chairmanship elected and not handpicked by the caucus leader, as in years past. Lawmakers will also pick a handful of new leaders on Monday evening — three chairmen to lead House Democrats’ policy and messaging arms and a representative for members who have served five terms or less. But its unclear how much influence they’ll have over Pelosi, who’s known for keeping a tight grip on her caucus. Pelosi dismissed descriptions of the new leadership roles as “lower level” during a press conference with reporters Friday. “These are not lower-level positions. Everybody’s in that room. They’re an equal voice,” she said. “It took me 15 years probably to get to the leadership table. These people get there in their freshman year or a couple of terms.”But even with more chairs at the table, members say privately she’s still calling the shots. New York Democratic Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney was mulling a challenge to Luján but changed his mind after a long conversation with Pelosi off the House floor late last week. Maloney will instead take the lead on an election post-mortem. And Pelosi announced Monday Texas Rep. Filemon Vela will participate in leadership meetings as a representative of the Blue Dog Coalition, a decision she made without the caucus voting first. Similarly, incoming freshmen will also have a representative in leadership — former Rep. Colleen Hanabusa from Hawaii. Hanabusa served two terms in Congress before losing to Sen. Brian Schatz in the Hawaii Democratic Senate primary in 2014. Now she's back, winning the election to fill the vacancy left by the late Rep. Mark Takai. Pelosi suggested freshmen pick her, citing the need for Asian American representation in the leadership hierarchy. The freshman went along with it but some complained after they had no idea they could go against Pelosi’s choice. “They don’t know [Hanabusa] that well but they feel like they’ve just lost out on their chance because she’s not a freshman,” said one House aide with knowledge of the situation. Pelosi herself is clearly ready to move on, unite the caucus at least publicly, and hammer Republicans over every little thing President-elect Trump does or says for the next two years. “I don’t think people want a new direction,” she told CBS’ John Dickerson Sunday when asked about the push for a leadership shakeup in her caucus. While Pelosi is eager to remind her members of the 2006 glory days, when they were swept into the majority and she was handed the speaker’s gavel, members say a forward, not backward, looking message that doesn’t depend solely on Trump is what’s needed. Especially after House Democrats hung their hat on Trump in the run up to Election Day and only picked up a handful of seats. “We can’t just hope that the Republicans screw up so bad we can ride that to the majority two years from now,” said Rep. Dan Lipinski (D-Ill.).

Trump blames unfair media for driving him to tweet

President-elect Donald Trump on Monday suggested he wouldn’t skirt the media by posting directly to his millions of social media followers if the Fourth Estate covered him “accurately & honorably.”“If the press would cover me accurately & honorably, I would have far less reason to ‘tweet,’” Trump wrote in a Twitter post Monday morning, apparently blaming the media for his inclination to tweet his unfiltered thoughts rather than communicating through more traditional means like statements via press releases and interviews.“Sadly,” Trump added, “I don't know if that will ever happen!”

Father Of Student Arrested For Sexual Assault Says 'Lots Of Girls' Want His Son

No charges have been filed, but USA Today reported that on Dec. 1 the accused student’s father insisted that the incident was consensual, because when “young, fast girls see something they like, they go after it.” The junior varsity football player’s father, a registered sex offender himself, told local media that his son was innocent and that the victim, a student from neighboring Carondelet, gave her consent.  “He’s tall, dark and handsome, he plays for De La Salle, there’s a lot of girls that want to be with my son,” the 38-year-old father said in an interview with Bay Area News Group. “When young, fast girls see something they like, they go after it.” This commentary, which suggests that an individual who is considered attractive or desirable is somehow exempt from the ability to assault another person, drastically differs from the alleged victim’s version of events.  “I was there, and I know what actually happened, so I don’t let it get to me,” she told KPIX5. “It’s not OK for this to happen to anyone, and it’s not OK for people, like society, to feel like the person that’s been hurt, that they’ve done something wrong to feel ashamed about the situation.” The teen girl and her father have called the suspect a “monster,” and have advocated for other students and their parents to talk about sexual assault. “It’s not OK for this to happen to anyone,” the alleged victim told San Francisco CBS affiliate KPIX. “And it’s not OK for people, like society, to feel like the person that’s been hurt, that they’ve done something wrong to feel ashamed about the situation… Boys need to know that no means no, period. Point blank.” The teen girl’s father also said that the assault was “an irreversible mistake,” according to a local ABC affiliate. “I had to sit back and wait while the kid was still going to school across the street from my daughter after he raped her.” Need help?

Speaker Ryan on 60 Minutes: Obamacare Is First Priority in 2017

  Last night, Speaker Ryan appeared on CBS’s 60 Minutes for a conversation with Scott Pelley, ranging from what Congress plans to tackle in 2017 to working with President-elect Trump. Below are excerpts from their conversation: Obamacare: “The first bill we’re going to be working on is our Obamacare legislation. . . . What we know is we have to make good on this promise. We have to bring relief as fast as possible to people who are struggling under Obamacare. . . . Patient-centered healthcare that gets everybody access to affordable healthcare coverage. So they can buy what they what they want to buy. . . . We will give everyone access to affordable healthcare coverage.” President-elect Trump: “He’s basically giving voice to a lot of people who have felt that they were voiceless. He’s communicating with people in this country who’ve felt like they have not been listened to. He’s going to be an unconventional president. I really think we have a great opportunity in front of us to fix problems, produce results, and improve people’s lives—that’s why we’re here in the first place. And so that’s what’s going to matter at the end of the day. Did we improve people’s lives? Did we solve the problems that the American people need solved? Are we addressing the concerns of people who are tired of being tired. . . . That’s just the way I look at this.” Poverty: “We feel very strongly about making work pay, about getting people transitioned from welfare to work. Get people skills they need, help they need, so they can get on the ladder of life.”    Economy: “We really want to focus on economic growth and growing the economy. There are a lot of regulations that are really just crushing jobs. Look at the coal miners in the Rust Belt that are getting out of work . . . the loggers and the timber workers and the paper mills on the West Coast . . . the ranchers or farmers in the Midwest . . . We’re talking about smarter regulations that actually help us grow jobs in this country. . . . We have a real economic growth problem in America. We are limping along. Wages are flat, and jobs aren’t being created near to the extent that they could and should be. So we think regulatory relief is very, very important. And that’s something we’re going to work on day one.” BONUS: Want to know what 2017 holds in under 60 seconds? Speaker Ryan lays out six priorities on 60 Minutes overtime.

Владимир Путин: Интервью американскому журналисту Чарли Роузу для телеканалов CBS и PBS

В преддверии своего участия в юбилейной 70-ой сессии Генеральной Ассамблеи ООН в Нью-Йорке Владимир Путин дал интервью американскому журналисту Чарли Роузу. Поскольку наше интервью выйдет перед моим выступлением, то мне кажется, было бы нецелесообразно подробно излагать всё, что я собираюсь сказать, но в общих чертах, конечно, я вспомню об истории Организации Объединённых Наций. Уже сейчас могу сказать о том, что решение о создании ООН было принято как раз в нашей стране, в Советском Союзе на Ялтинской конференции. Советский Союз, Россия, как правопреемница Советского Союза, является страной – учредительницей Организации Объединённых Наций и постоянным членом Совета Безопасности. Конечно, нужно будет сказать о дне сегодняшнем, о том, как сегодня складывается международная жизнь, о том, что ООН остаётся единственной универсальной международной организацией, которая призвана поддерживать мир во всём мире. И в этом смысле у неё нет никакой альтернативы сегодня. Ясно также, что ООН должна приспосабливаться к изменяющемуся миру, и мы все постоянно дискутируем на этот счёт: как она должна меняться, какими темпами, что качественно должно измениться. Разумеется, придётся сказать, и даже не то что придётся, – нужно будет воспользоваться этой международной трибуной для того, чтобы дать российское видение сегодняшних международных отношений и будущего этой организации и мирового сообщест
