Private Prison Stock Surges After Donald Trump Is Elected POTUS

Via Bossip– According to HuffPo, Trump’s shocking election into the White House could mean bigger business for the private prison industry if the markets are correct.

The largest private prison contractor, CoreCivic ― which recently changed its name from Corrections Corporation of America ― saw its stock shoot up by more than 58 percent shortly after morning trading began. Stocks for the second largest contractor, GEO Group, rose by more than 28 percent. Over the next few hours of trading, both stocks came down somewhat from those peaks, but remained strong.

The numbers marked a sharp reversal for an industry that had seen its value plummet after the Obama administration announced in August that it would phase out the use of private contractors for Bureau of Prisons facilities. That decision came in response to a scathing report by the Justice Department’s Officer of the Inspector General, which found that overall, privatized prison facilities led to more security problems without necessarily saving money.

No matter the situation…only cowards jump people. We are praying the reasoning behind this jumping wasn’t over him voting for Donald Trump, but it sure does look like it.

SMH! Stop the senseless violence people.

America Grapples With How To Move Forward In The Donald Trump Era

Donald Trump, who dealt a stunning political blow to Hillary Clinton and the established order when he was elected the 45th President of the United States on Tuesday, now faces the challenge of governing a divided American electorate after a notoriously bitter campaign.

On election night, Clinton supporters voiced fear and frustration, overwhelmed and bewildered by their candidate’s unexpected loss. Some said they would avoid listening to news the next day; others predicted it would feel like waking up in an unfamiliar country. But on Wednesday, top Democratic and Republican leaders delivered a common message. They compared an unprecedented presidential election to those that came before and called on Americans across the political spectrum to unite in its wake.

“Now, as we do every four years, we have to work to heal the divisions of a long campaign,” Republican House Speaker Paul Ryan said. “This needs to be a time of redemption, not a time of recrimination. We all need to rededicate ourselves to making America great and making it a more perfect union.”

“Everybody is sad when their side loses an election, but the day after we have to remember that we’re actually all on one team,” President Barack Obama said. “This is an intramural scrimmage. We’re not Democrats first. We’re not Republicans first. We are Americans first. We’re patriots first.”

Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren, a liberal leader who was one of Trump’s most outspoken critics during the campaign, offered to “put aside our differences” and work with him to improve the economy. Trump, in his victory speech, praised Clinton for a hard-fought campaign and asked Americans to “bind the wounds of division”—wounds he had so often opened himself.

Those wounds appeared most painful for Clinton supporters gathered at what was supposed to be her victory party in New York City. Before the results came in, they voiced concern about what a Trump victory would mean.

“I fear it’ll just exacerbate and cause more separation between Americans and the world,” said Wendy Siskin, 41. “I don’t think we’ll be in a safe place. I don’t think we’ll be in a loving place.”

Syed Zaidi, 51, said early in the night that he disagreed with Trump’s approach to immigration and viewed his prospective presidency as “very scary.” Holding a sign that read, “Great leaders unite, they do not divide,” atop Clinton’s “Stronger Together” slogan, Zaidi said he hoped both parties would come together no matter who won the election.

“It’s too much hatred, too much hatred in the country,” he said. “The whole world is looking at us as a democratic country in the world, you know? People come from all over the world for the freedom of democracy here.”

Texas AG Commissioner Calls Hillary Clinton A C-nt On Twitter

Smh! Politics is a shell of its former self. These new age politicians are some gangsters!

Commissioner Sid Miller speaks during a rally for Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump at the Travis County Exposition Center on August 23, 2016 in Austin, Texas.

According to CNNPolitics– Texas Agriculture Commissioner Sid Miller referred Tuesday to Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton as a “cunt” on Twitter, in a tweet relaying poll results.

PENNSYLVANIA: NEW AUTO ALLIANCE POLL TRUMP 44 CU** 43 Go Trump Go!” Miller’s account, @MillerForTexas, tweeted, according to a screen shot by the San Antonio Express-News, which reported it was deleted about 10 minutes after posting.

A spokesman for Miller originally claimed the account was “hacked,” according to the San Antonio Express-News, then blamed a staffer.

Mark Loeffler, an agency spokesman, now says the tweet was an accidental “retweet,” which implies it was written by another user and shared by Miller, but the tweet is not formatted in that manner and the reference to Clinton appeared to originate with Miller’s account.

“The campaign was retweeting information on Twitter today and inadvertently retweeted a tweet that they were not aware contained a derogatory term,” Loeffler, told CNN. “The tweet was taken down as soon as possible. Commissioner Miller finds the term vulgar and offensive and apologizes to anyone who may have seen it.”
Miller is a Republican who holds a statewide electable position. His Twitter biography self describes him as “a deplorable,” referencing what Clinton’s remark that some Trump supporters were a “basket of deplorables.”

Republican Texas Gov. Greg Abbott condemned Miller’s tweet in a statement.

“The language is reprehensible and is an embarrassment,” he said in a statement to CNN. “No true Texas gentleman would ever talk this way.”

And the Texas Democratic Party responding by tweeting at Miller,”.@MillerForTexas delete your account. #txlege”

Miller has a reputation for stoking controversy. Last year, he shared a meme on Facebook advocating dropping nuclear bombs on “the Muslim world,” according to Texas Monthly.

I’ll be honest, the c-word is not a word used frequently used within the black community, however I do understand the offensive of the term. It’s certainly the lowest of the low coming from a “politician.” Straight disrespectful.

Mike Pence’s Plane Skids Off Rainy Runway At LaGuardia Airport

A plane carrying Republican vice presidential nominee Mike Pence skidded off a runway Thursday night as it landed at LaGuardia Airport in New York. There were no reported injuries.

According to KTLA:

The press pool in the back of the aircraft, a Boeing 737-700 chartered from Eastern Airlines that was painted with the campaign’s logo, could feel the plane fishtailing as it touched down and sliding off the runway before coming to a very sharp halt in the grass off the side of the runway.

Once the plane came to a full stop, the Indiana governor walked to the back of the plane to check on the press. As everyone on board deplaned, Pence could be seen speaking with emergency responders.

A spokesman for Pence said the vice presidential nominee would retire to his hotel for the evening, canceling an appearance at a closed-door fundraiser that had been scheduled in Trump Tower. He called into the event instead, a senior Pence aide said.
