beautiful-christmas-candles-12God Rest You Merry, Gentlemen (also known as God Rest Ye Merry, Gentlemen) is an English traditional Christmas carol. The melody is in Aeolian mode. It was published by William B. Sandys in 1833, although the author is unknown.[1]

Like so many early Christmas songs, this carol was written as a direct reaction to the music of the fifteenth century church, in Stories Behind the Best-Loved Songs of Christmas. However, in the as-yet earliest known publication of the carol on a circa 1760 broadsheet, it is described as a “new Christmas carol,”[2] suggesting its origin is actually in the mid-18th century. It appeared again among “new carols for Christmas” in another 18th-century source, a chapbook believed to be printed between 1780-1800.

    What Alexander Hamilton Would Want
    by Martin Longman
    December 12, 2016 2:18 PM

    Our first president was from Virginia, and our second president was from Massachusetts. In fact, our first six presidents were from one of those two states. It’s an oversimplification, but the competition between Virginia and Massachusetts in the early part of our Republic was not unlike the competition we have today between Democrats and Republicans.

    Now, I’d never want to compare Donald Trump to George Washington, but perhaps it would be less startling to imagine a situation in which John Adams had been elected in 1796 despite losing the popular vote, and that he had been openly friendly to King George III, asked him to intervene in the election, steal, read and disseminate Thomas Jefferson’s private mail correspondence, and then began appointing British loyalists as his top advisers and nominating them to positions like Secretary of State.

    As it was, Adams was only elected because one elector each in Virginia, North Carolina, and Pennsylvania defected to his cause. But if it had been widely known prior to the Electoral College meeting in their respective states that Adams had been surreptitiously aided by the British Crown, the electors would have had to contemplate what Alexander Hamilton wrote about their job description in the Federalist No. 68. To begin with, Alexander explained why they had created the Electoral College:

    Nothing was more to be desired than that every practicable obstacle should be opposed to cabal, intrigue, and corruption. These most deadly adversaries of republican government might naturally have been expected to make their approaches from more than one querter, but chiefly from the desire in foreign powers to gain an improper ascendant in our councils. How could they better gratify this, than by raising a creature of their own to the chief magistracy of the Union? But the convention have guarded against all danger of this sort, with the most provident and judicious attention. They have not made the appointment of the President to depend on any preexisting bodies of men, who might be tampered with beforehand to prostitute their votes; but they have referred it in the first instance to an immediate act of the people of America, to be exerted in the choice of persons for the temporary and sole purpose of making the appointment.

    The number one concern was to avoid allowing a foreign power “to rais[e] a creature of their own to the chief magistracy of the Union.” We would have the people vote for electors who would be watchful for foreign interference. Those electors would be chosen for this purpose and this purpose alone. It would be hard to know who they would be beforehand, which would make it hard for a foreign power to bribe them.

    McConnell Says No to Infrastructure Spending as a Priority
    by Nancy LeTourneau
    December 12, 2016 3:38 PM

    The one remaining item in Trump’s campaign promises that would actually have the potential to help working class Americans is his proposal to spend $1 trillion to upgrade our infrastructure. While it is still unclear what the spending plan would look like – and plenty of concerns that it would be more about lining the pockets of construction companies – it still had the possibility to boost job growth. There was also the prospect of creating what Greg Sargent called “a nightmare scenario for progressives.”

    Which raises the possibility of a nightmare scenario for economic progressivism. It goes like this: Increased spending helps boost the economy, which is already accelerating, even as Republicans give the credit for it to tax cuts (especially at the top) and deregulation, validating their narrative that Big Government under Obama is what held the economy back from its full potential until President Trump unshackled it.

    That’s one of the reasons why I’ve been looking out for any signs about what’s up for this proposal. I’ve already noted that infrastructure spending doesn’t show up on the priority lists of either Mike Pence or Paul Ryan. Given that Trump has basically turned over control of Congressional affairs to his vice-president, it is critical to notice not only the lack of mention from the Speaker, but its failure to make the list for Pence.

    Over the weekend I actually listened to the speeches from both the president and vice-president elect in Iowa last week. Trump touted his infrastructure plan, but it didn’t get a mention from Pence. Otherwise, their lists of priorities pretty much overlapped. Interesting…isn’t it? Perhaps there is a disagreement going on in the inner circles of the Trump camp over this issue. We all know that Steve Bannon has been touting the idea of a huge infrastructure plan winning over working class voters. But perhaps that’s all part of the con job. Who knows?

    Today, Majority Leader Mitch McConnell became the first Republican to actually put the kibosh on the idea of infrastructure spending as a priority. While touting the fact that Congress will use the budget reconciliation process next month to repeal Obamacare and then again this spring to pass tax cuts, he weighed in with this:

    Announcement! COPE Has Placed a Moratorium on BLAXIT Passes

    It’s been a month since the world began its’ quick crumble, with the election of Squirrelwig McRacistPants as the next President of the United States. We were all stunned, because WTF HOW THE FUCK WHO THE FUCK. Even though Hillary Clinton secured almost 3 million more votes than Cheeto Satan, the fact that she lost some key swing states lost her the Electoral College votes she needed.

    But when numbers came out on who voted for who, we found out that 53% of white women who voted cast their ballot for Lucifer’s understudy, Drumpf. That has everyone facepalming because after all he said during the campaign season to denigrate women, you’d think women would have stood up loudly. Well, Black women did. 94% of us voted for Hillary. Because we SHOW UP and do what’s necessary. We already knew white men would vote for Trump, so that was no surprise. But white women? COMME DES FACKONS.

    This election was very instructive, and what we learn here is that our sisters ain’t always our sisters. With that being said, we gotta close ranks. White folks out here hustling backwards.

    The Council of Onyx People Everywhere (COPE) would like to announce that there is an indefinite moratorium on Honorary Black Cards. Yes, even your “cool” white friends. We have to have an emergency meeting to figure out how we will move forward, and to start planning the logistics of #BLAXIT. Don’t know what BLAXIT is?

    Who’s Looking Out for You?
    by D.R. Tucker
    December 11, 2016 3:00 PM

    Are they going to whine four years from now, too?

    Let’s say that in 2020–four years after Donald Trump has used the Constitution as a placemat, ignored incident after incident of police brutality, gutted every last element of President Obama’s carbon-cutting efforts, proclaimed that Vladimir Putin was virtuous and pure, and allowed corruption to contaminate the country–the Democratic presidential primary comes down to another contest pitting a perceived “establishment Democrat” against an undisputed progressive. Let’s say that, due to missteps, gaffes, lack of coverage from the mainstream media, or just plain old bad luck, the progressive hopeful fails to secure the Democratic nomination.

    Will the same folks who went on and on about Hillary Clinton’s alleged flaws, her supposed cautiousness, her “uninspiring” nature, and her ties to the “Establishment” resurface to again assail the Democratic nominee as “not progressive enough”? Will they again exaggerate the nominee’s perceived policy flaws? Will they again suggest that there’s not a dime’s worth of difference between the Democratic nominee and the demagogic incumbent?

    As I noted in February, back in the summer of 2013 I was horrified by the rhetoric of progressive radio host Sam Seder, who chased after then-Democratic US Senate aspirant Cory Booker with a rhetorical chainsaw. Seder was repulsed by the prospect of Booker defeating then-Rep. Rush Holt in an August primary to replace the late Sen. Frank Lautenberg in an October special election. I also preferred Holt’s vision, especially his strong advocacy of a federal carbon tax to combat climate change, but it was fairly obvious that Holt was not going to win the primary–and I could not figure out why Seder kept on promoting the idea that Booker was only marginally better than Steve Lonegan, the Koch Brothers-backed Republican contender for Lautenberg’s former seat.

    The same reasoning Seder used in that 2013 New Jersey Senate primary was on display during the 2016 Democratic presidential primary–and beyond. How many times did you have conversations with nominally progressive acquaintances who insisted that Clinton was a crypto-Republican, that her opposition to the Trans-Pacific Partnership was a hoax, that she couldn’t wait to sell out to Big Fracking and Big Pharma and Big Ag and Big Big?

    If a Democrat who has, by some odd metric, been deemed “not progressive enough” wins the presidential primary in 2020, we’ll likely hear this same rhetoric again. Nothing will have been learned.

      The Democrats could have won this election in spite of real obstacles such as voter suppression, an unpopular candidate, and so forth. In fact, Hillary winning the popular vote by such a wide margin and her losing blue states by such a narrow margin seems to indicate the votes were there if her billion dollar campaign had performed as they should have given the resources they had available to them.

      Hillary’s path to victory was not some mysterious, other worldly phenomenon. It was crystal clear which states she had to win. Had she won all those states, she needed only Nevada or New Hampshire to get her over the finish line. That alone would have won the election. If she also won Florida’s 29 electoral votes, she could have lost a couple of blue states in the rust belt and still won. If she won Florida and all her must have blue states, Trump would have had no path to victory. Instead, Trump won three of her must have blue states and left her with no path to victory.

      I believe that Hillary and her supporters are having a difficult time with admitting that her campaign made colossal mistakes that cost her the election. Almost all of her TV ads were about Rapey Trump, Trump is a Misogynist, Trump is a Monster etc…Perhaps that is all true, but employed as a campaign strategy it’s a loser. And this isn’t hindsight.

      If the Democrats wanted to stake the moral high ground their credible positions are in legislating the social safety net and civil rights. And if Hillary’s campaign wanted a powerful message, they would have had TV ads about Social Security and Medicare and the GOP’s decades long struggle to destroy them. And they should have defended the ACA as well. At least half the TV ads should have addressed this.

      Trump railed on in his rallies and the debates about repealing and replacing the ACA. No one made him describe the replacement at any level deeper than a talking point. He said that SS and Medicare would not be touched but no one asked him what guarantees he would provide to ward off the GOP Congress from doing what they have wanted to do since the New Deal. And now, once again, these programs are in danger of being privatized and destroyed.

      If you want to lose an election, this is the way to do it. Preach to the choir. Convince yourself that this is the way you get all those complacent, lazy people off the couch and into a voting booth. Ignore everything else. Trump is a monster, that should be enough, right?

    With the news that Donald Trump will nominate ExxonMobil CEO Rex Tillerson as his secretary of state, it is clear that the president-elect continues to feed the swamp rather than drain it. But that’s not the message his supporters are hearing. Here is how Kellyanne Conway described the nominee on Fox News:

    .@KellyannePolls: “I think in the case of Mr. Tillerson you see someone who is not a typical politician…You see a successful businessman.” pic.twitter.com/elNF3SGsPL

    — Fox News (@FoxNews) December 11, 2016

    Conway isn’t lying. Tillerson is not a typical politician. But to get a sense of who he is, it’s helpful to read what Steve Coll has written about him. Coll literally wrote the book about ExxonMobil. It’s titled, Private Empire: ExxonMobil and American Power. Here’s how he recently summarized what he learned:

    The main themes of “Private Empire” involved the ways that ExxonMobil saw itself as an independent, transnational corporate sovereign in the world, a power independent of the American government, one devoted firmly to shareholder interests and possessed of its own foreign policy…

    The goal of ExxonMobil’s independent foreign policy has been to promote a world that is good for oil and gas production. Because oil projects require huge amounts of capital and only pay off fully over decades, Tillerson has favored doing business in countries that offer political stability, even if this stability was achieved through authoritarian rule.

    States Can’t Stop Electors From Voting Their Conscience
    by Carolyn Shapiro
    December 9, 2016 12:23 PM

    Earlier this week, in a New York Times op-ed, Texas presidential elector Chris Suprun announced that he would not be casting his vote for Donald Trump. Even though Texas voters chose Trump, Suprun—along with a small group of electors from around the country calling themselves “Hamilton Electors”—will vote for a yet-to-be-identified compromise Republican. As Suprun explained in his op-ed, and as I and others have detailed elsewhere, Donald Trump’s conduct since the election has demonstrated that he is dangerously unqualified and unfit to be president.

    Can electors legally do this? While the nearly universal expectation is electors’ votes will reflect the popular vote in their states, the Constitution doesn’t require them to. As others have explained, Alexander Hamilton’s justification for the Electoral College in Federalist No. 68 shows that the Framers intended for electors to exercise their own judgment when necessary.

    Many states, however, have laws that prohibit these so-called “faithless electors” (perhaps a better term would be “conscientious electors”) from bucking the state popular vote. This week, two electors filed suit in federal court arguing that Colorado’s version is unconstitutional. (Hillary Clinton won Colorado, but the plaintiffs hope that a victory in their lawsuit will effectively invalidate all such laws, allowing electors in Trump states to defect.) In addition to arguments based on the Framers’ intent, there is a strong argument based on constitutional structure and text, and on Supreme Court precedent, that these electors should prevail.

    Did anyone seriously think Donald Trump would change his mind on climate change?

    Apparently, former Vice President Al Gore’s highly publicized efforts to convince the Addams, er, Trump family to give efforts to reduce CO2 their due were for naught, as the apparent President-elect went ahead with plans to hand the Environmental Protection Agency and Department of the Interior over to climate-change deniers Scott Pruitt and Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers. (Trump is also reportedly leaning towards nominating ExxonMobil CEO Rex Tillerson as his Secretary of State; Tillerson’s company, of course, is viciously opposing any effort to hold the fossil-fuel behemoth accountable for its decades of deception on climate change.) Why did Gore think that the addled minds of the Trump family could be changed?

    Granted, Gore wasn’t the only climate hawk to fall for the malarkey that the Trump family would ever agree with Sen. Ed Markey. Last month, Fisher Stevens, the director of arguably the greatest climate documentary ever made, Before the Flood, told entertainment blogger Jeffrey Wells:

      ‘…New York socialite Jocelyn Wildenstein’s boyfriend Lloyd Klein was arrested on 5:53 a.m. on Sunday at Trump World Tower, PEOPLE confirms.

      Klein, 49, has been charged with robbery, assault with intent to cause physical injury, grand larceny for taking a credit card and mischief with intent to damage property, a New York Police Department spokesman tells PEOPLE.

      “My client was arrested this morning at his New York residence after patently false allegations were made to the NYPD by Mrs. Wildenstein alleging a physical altercation with Mr. Klein today shortly after midnight,” she said, adding that Klein was trying to remove “his personal affects from the residence they shared for the past 14 years” when he was arrested.

      On Wednesday, Wildenstein, 71, who is infamous for her extensive plastic surgery and is sometimes called “Catwoman” by the tabloids, was arrested and faces assault charges for allegedly clawing Klein’s face and attacking him with a pair of scissors, PEOPLE previously confirmed.

      She is facing both a second- and third-degree assault charge for allegedly attacking him during an argument early Wednesday at her Trump World Tower apartment.

      “The victim is a 49-year-old male … Wildenstein is accused of scratching his face with her fingernails and using a pair of scissors to cut him on the upper-right part of his chest,” a NYPD spokesman told PEOPLE regarding her arrest, noting that authorities took Wildenstein into custody around 1:12 a.m. that day…’
