Re: “Oakland Congresswoman Barbara Lee Refuses to Certify Trump's Electoral College Win

I love all of the Herr Drumpf voters calling others exactly what they are! At one of his numerous Ku Klux Klan meetings/ Hitler youth rallies you egregiously attended featuring mein Kampf der kline Neu Fuhrer Herr Drumpf preached hate misogyny xenophobia scapegoating my hard working Hispanic brothers and sisters picking the lettuce you eat and making beds i can only imagine the price of a head of lettuce if a person was paid twenty five dollars an hour with benefits week ends off paid vacations and retirement you'd howl as the anti Christian you are! Your obsolete akin to a zombie dinosaur trying in vain to revive a vile past, you and your kind should be in urns!

Some people will break all kinds of laws just to get what they want. An election should be done fairly without Putin, electoral college illegals, and other election swayers using all the dirt they can to win.

The people with the negative comments must be Donald Trump supporters. You sound like you're angry. God Bless and help you overcome your emotional state. You must learn more about Politics.

She achieved her goal of getting her name in the news. Her protest means nothing. Sort of like whistling as one passes a cemetary at somethng that is not really a threat.Me thinketh she protest too much.

A team of Lawyers also has evidence that atleast 50 electoral votes were cast for Trump from electors who are illegally seated by state laws. But not one Senator would back those brave representatives who took a stand!

Typical, of the left coast. They want to rule the world, along with NY, Chi., Cleveland, etc. Moochers, electing looters to rob the public treasury, for their own ends.

Thomas French, some of us actually already know that, but you do realize the malfunctioning machines and voter rolls were messed up, so that is why that happened.

Steven Kinney, wtf does biden have to do with anything. he isn't in charge of the election, and is only vice president, which has barely any power.

One of the main issues is the gerrymandering of districts, if we didn't have that, the republicans would not be in charge of the house and senate, and we wouldn't have all those crazy people in office.

It is hard for me to believe that this woman is a representative in the US congress. For 15 years she has taken a salary $175,000.00 and her district has received "0" because she never sponsored a Bill that became LAW. Here she is again making a FOOL of herself and her constituents by this ridiculous comments. People of California, please find someone that cares about you and puts you first.

This would give me a good Idea of where not to send government funding for the first couple years anyway. Trump should play hardball if that what these undemocratic individual want to do.

Re: “Oakland Congresswoman Barbara Lee Refuses to Certify Trump's Electoral College Win

He didn't win. and yet they didn't take into count that there were how many fraudulent electoral college people on that board. That weren't suppose to vote because they were put in there just to vote for him only. I can't believe the way this country is going. Now I can see why people want to leave this country so much.

Good for you Barbara Lee! Votes suppression is deeply troubling. Hey Thomas French, what are your sources? How reputable are they? Maybe more fake news? I'm curious to know

Re: “Oakland Congresswoman Barbara Lee Refuses to Certify Trump's Electoral College Win

She may not have approved the Electorial College results matters NOT as Biden did so she lost again. Biden confirmed the Electorial College and declared Trump the Next President.

Re: “Oakland Congresswoman Barbara Lee Refuses to Certify Trump's Electoral College Win

75 percent of America's high-poverty neighborhoods in 1970 still classified that way four decades later. Racial and class inequality is very much alive, "progressive politics" apartheid. Blacks have voted Democratic for almost 50 years are now being driven from their neighborhoods that have been their home for generations. We gave the Democratic Party our votes and they "took us for granted" leaving us living with social tension, unrest, and the worst GUN VIOLENCE AND VIOLENT CRIME . . . A diminished hope and no opportunities while the Democratic Party's upscale hipster real estate speculators prosper. President-Elect Donald Trump wants to enable states with dedicated grants and implementation standards related to diversity, inclusion, and targeted hiring the resources necessary to spur investment in under served black neighborhoods. Stopping gun violence, revitalizing education, creating jobs, replacing substandard housing, and strengthening black families is a mandate we secured for him.

That is, Mr. Trump owes his victory to "predominately black Democratic strongholds" who were convinced to give him more votes than the previous Republican candidates. African Americans (like Todd Elliott Koger) convinced hundreds of thousands blacks to boycott the vote and/or voting "straight" Democrat.

All across America the black vote "boycott" masterminded by Todd Elliott Koger effectuated an insurmountable obstruction for Hillary Clinton and the Democrats. There is correspondence to the Trump campaign that outlined "Koger's Plan." The "Thank you for the suggestion" reply. And, President-Elect Donald Trump's verbatim use of Todd Elliott Koger's exact same words during "online videos" and speeches that followed in Michigan, Milwaukee (Wisconsin) and Pennsylvania. Mr. Koger's writings at one point specifically advised that the "Koger Plan" to target the black vote will changed the destructive conversation and slip in the polls that the "verbal fight" with Khizr Khan, a slain U.S. soldier's father had caused in late August 2016.

When the Trump campaign started to collapse in October 2016, Mr. Koger suggested the "need for a writing" to change the conversation again. He suggested that the campaign needed to move away from the "hot mic incident." Todd Elliott Koger's correspondence suggested a "Treaty with Black America." There's another "thank you" from the campaign. And, Mr. Trump almost immediately announced a "Contract with America" and a "New Deal for Black America."

Maybe this is just a remarkable concurrence of events. Maybe Mr. Koger's packaging of Mr. Trump's visual optics and his efforts to communicate implementation of the " Koger Plan" had no apparent connection. Maybe it was just "serendipity" in North and West Philadelphia (Eastern Pennsylvania) and Penn Hills, Allegheny County (Western Pennsylvania) where turnout fell 10 percent in the majority-black wards. Happenstance in Milwaukee, Wisconsin (District 15), where turnout was down 19.5 percent. Apparent "fluke" in Detroit, Wayne County, Michigan, where 75,000 "Motown Voters" decided to stay home. One thing for sure, Todd Elliott Koger's correspondence kept reiterating that "Mr. Trump's only path to victory" was the "black vote." Cities like Boston, Massachusetts' "predominately black" wards had their greatest decline in voter turnout this century.

And, just 50,000 votes in three states, Pennsylvania, Michigan, and Wisconsin (the focus of "Koger's Plan") decided the election. The National Diversity Coalition for Trump did send another "Thank You." But interestingly, Todd Elliott Koger and his wife don't even have tickets for the Trump inauguration, its events, nor any job offers . . . .

there were more voters in the detroit area than were signed in on the rolls which gave clinton more votes but you won't hear about that.

Re: “Oakland Privacy Commission Approves Surveillance Transparency and Oversight Law

Congratulations to the Privacy Commission for this excellent initiative. I hope that the soon-to-be implemented Police Commission will take a page from your playbook and discharge their duties as effectively! Bravo.

Re: “Oakland Privacy Commission Approves Surveillance Transparency and Oversight Law

Such policies and procedures for oversight are more critical than ever in the Age of Trump. Not that the Obama administration's record on civil liberties and surveillance had any redeeming features, but we can only expect things to get worse come January 20th.

Putting this in place is one single step of a thousand mile journey in defeating what we all know is possible - a ubiquitous surveillance state beyond anything Orwell could have imagined. But it's a good one.

Bravo to those who worked so hard to put this together.

Re: “Anne Kirkpatrick Picked to Lead Oakland Police. Here's What We Know About Her.

You say that Broken Windows Theory was used by Brattain in NYC. According to UC Berkeley Professor Franklin Zimring that's not true. According to Zimring Bratton used Hot Spot Policing identified with the revolutionary Compstat computer system (designed by Jack Maple). According to Zimring there was talk about Broken Windows Theory, but that theory was never actually implemented.

You can google Zimring's book on the subject but here are a couple references. The 2nd one is the more detailed, an interview on KQED's Forum:

Rather than make comments about appearance, we should applaud that OPD now has leadership. I wish the new chief success in a very challenging position.
