A Donald Trump America – ‘Paul Krugman Warns of Unprecedented Trump Corruption to Come’

1trump-corupt

‘Two things are already clear: the evidence is mounting steadily that Trump never meant to make America great but to fill his own pockets, and that the mainstream media, complicit in his election, now intends to normalize (and profit by) the new low in the swamp Trump once promised to drain but is now rapidly filling instead’.

As if we didn’t have more then enough clues before the election…..

Trump’s daughter, having no position in Government or or a future Trump Administration – sit’s in on the meeting of Trump and the Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe.

Why?

Think about this…
This, Trump U was a business…..that taught business skills……that went out of business…..

Trump settle’s the Trump U lawsuit for $25 million. But of course no admission of wrong doing.

Then why pay?

‘In a series of tweets this morning, Nobel laureate, economist, and New York Times columnist Paul Krugman, warned that we are “about to enter, or may have already entered, an era of corrupt governance unprecedented in U.S. history.”

“We’re about to enter, or may already have entered, an era of corrupt governance unprecedented in U.S. history. What does it mean”?

Paul Krugman ✔ @paulkrugman
“Expect to see lots of privatization and a general shift from transparent to murky so that favors can be traded”

Four letters….starts with an f……

Secretary of state
‘Former House Speaker Gingrich’
Sen Bob Corker, current chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee’

‘Trump is also eyeing former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations John Bolton’ – Build or find a Fall Out Shelter NOW!!!
(shudder)

Treasury secretary
‘Trump himself has indicated that he wants to give the Treasury secretary job to his finance chairman, Mnuchin, a 17-year-veteran of Goldman Sachs’.

Secretary of defense
‘Among the Republican defense officials who could join the Trump administration’:
‘Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.)’

Attorney general
‘People close to Trump say former New York City Mayor Giuliani, one of Trump’s leading public defenders, is the leading candidate for attorney general’.
Interior secretary
‘Lucas, the 74-year-old co-founder of oil products company Lucas Oil, is seen as a top contender for Interior secretary’.
‘And Trump’s son Donald Trump Jr., is said to be interested in the job’.
‘Meanwhile, a person who spoke to the Trump campaign told POLITICO that the aides have also discussed tapping Sarah Palin for Interior secretary. Trump has said he’d like to put Palin in his cabinet, and Palin has made no secret of her interest’.

wtf1
Agriculture secretary
‘The most controversial name on the transition’s current short list is Sid Miller, the current secretary of agriculture in Texas, who caused a firestorm just days ago after his campaign’s Twitter account referred to Hillary Clinton as a “c—.” Miller said it was a staffer mistake and apologized’.

Commerce secretary
‘Billionaire investor Wilbur Ross, a Trump economic adviser, could fit the bill’.

Health and Human Services secretary
‘Among the names receiving buzz’:
‘Florida Gov. Rick Scott’,
‘Gingrich’
‘And Ben Carson, a former GOP presidential candidate. Carson has received the most attention lately for HHS, even from Trump himself’.
‘At a recent anti-Obamacare rally, Trump went out of his way to praise Carson by calling him a “brilliant” physician. “I hope that he will be very much involved in my administration in the coming years,” Trump said’. – And it gives Trump his ‘token Black’.
Energy secretary
Continental Resources CEO Hamm has long been seen as a leading candidate for energy secretary.
Education secretary
‘Trump has made clear the Education Department would play a reduced role in his administration — if it exists at all. He has suggested he may try to do away with it altogether’.
Veterans Affairs secretary
‘The name most commonly mentioned for Veterans Affairs secretary is House Veterans’ Affairs Chairman Jeff Miller, who’s retiring from the House and was an early Trump backer’.
Homeland Security secretary
‘One person close to Trump’s campaign said David Clarke, the conservative sheriff of Milwaukee County, Wisconsin, is a possible candidate for Homeland Security secretary. Clarke has cultivated a devoted following on the right, and he spoke at the Republican National Convention in Ohio, declaring, “Blue lives matter.”
Environmental Protection Agency administrator
‘While Trump has called for eliminating the EPA, he has more recently modified that position, saying in September that he’ll “refocus the EPA on its core mission of ensuring clean air, and clean, safe drinking water for all Americans.”

‘Myron Ebell, a climate skeptic who is running the EPA working group on Trump’s transition team, is seen as a top candidate to lead the agency’.

Fantastic op-ed by Garrison Keillor –

In short – “We liberal elitists are now completely in the clear. The government is in Republican hands. Let them deal with him”.

Blog Running – ‘David Frum Predicts the Dark Course of Trump’s Impending Authoritarianism’

1frum

I like David Frum and sadly I can’t really argue what he is saying……

David Frum ? @davidfrum
1) “Unlike his analogues in Poland/Hungary/Turkey, I don’t imagine that Donald Trump will immediately set out to build an authoritarian state”

2) “I expect his first priority will be to use the presidency massively to enrich himself”.

3) “That program of massive self-enrichment however will trigger media investigations and criticism by congressional Democrats”.

4) “As we’ve seen, Trump cannot tolerate criticism. He prides himself on always retaliating against perceived enemies, by means fair or foul”

5) “We’ve seen too that Trump’s advisers and aides share this belief. Chris Christie; Corey Lewandowski – they live by gangster morality”.

6) “So the abuses will start as payback. With a compliant Gop majority in Congress, Trump admin can rewrite laws to enable payback”

7) “The courts may be an obstacle. But w a compliant Senate, a president can change the courts – as happened in Poland & Hungary”.

8) “Current IRS commissioner’s term runs to end 2018. But (I looked it up) few commissioners serve the full 5 years”.

9) “The FBI seems already to have been pre-politicized in Trump’s favor. If Comey resigns, Trump will have another opportunity”.

10) “Construction of the apparatus of revenge and repression will begin opportunistically & haphazardly. It will accelerate methodically. END”

*****************************

‘Frum joined many Republicans in saying that he had voted for Hillary Clinton rather than vote for Donald Trump. Where all of these crossover votes went is anyone’s guess’.

‘Frum’s point about Donald Trump having unfettered access to power is one I’ve been making since he won. Republicans have already proven that they are fine with weaponizing the FBI against Democrats in order to win an election, which places Donald Trump in the odd situation of being elected while acting like Richard Nixon. Perhaps because of it’.

‘Donald Trump will have no checks and balances on his power. The Supreme Court has been stripped of its power by Republicans who refused to even give a hearing to President Obama’s extraordinary nominee Merrick Garland, leaving it wide open for Trump to fill the seat with someone who will embolden his violations of the law’.

‘And the House and Senate are full of Republicans who have already shown that they will use government against opponents’.

‘There are no standards here to stop Trump. There are not enough Republicans with ethics and courage to stand in his way’.

‘It isn’t that Donald Trump has a plan to do this, it’s that his nature and opportunity and a willing Republican Party will embolden him in his revenge plots’.

‘Donald Trump is already unstable, now we’ve made him the most powerful person on earth and Republicans have destroyed any checks and balances that were supposed to protect us. And them’.

‘Buckle up, America’.

Let Trump Be Trump – President Trump’s First 100 Days

1-awe

leftover-trump2

Understand that most of what Donald Trump has promised/campaigned on is unconstitutional so while it might be proposed, now passed by a Republican Congress – even with a 5th Conservative Supreme Court Justice – they will still be unconstitutional – but reflective of what Trump supporters wanted America to look like………

***Sue the women who accused him of sexual assault.

***Deport Millions of illegals.

***”Repeal every single Obama executive order.” (He has also pledged more specifically to “eliminate every unconstitutional executive order.”)

***”Repeal Obamacare.” (On Trump’s campaign website, he’s less bullish, promising only to “ask Congress” on day one to repeal Obamacare immediately.)

***”End the war on coal.”

***”Begin swiftly removing criminal illegal immigrants from this country.” (More specifically, Trump has promised to do this in his “first hour” in office, “day one, before the wall, before anything.”)

***”Begin working on an impenetrable, physical, tall, powerful, beautiful, southern border wall.”

***Meet with Homeland Security officials and generals to begin securing the southern border.

***”Notify all countries that refuse to take back dangerous illegal immigrants who have committed crimes in this country that they will lose access to our visa programs if they continue to do so.”

***Convene his top generals and inform them they have 30 days to come up with a plan to stop ISIS.

***Fix the Department of Veterans Affairs.

***Call the heads of major companies who are moving operations oversea to inform them that they’ll face 35 percent tariffs.

***”Contact countries and say…’Folks, we love protecting you, we want to continue to protect you but you’re not living up to the bargain’…They’re not paying what they’re supposed to be paying—which is very little, by the way.”

***”Defend the unborn.”

***”Withdraw from TPP.”

***”Start taking care of our…military.”

***Suspend Syrian refugee resettlement.

***”Notify our NAFTA partners of my intention to renegotiate the deal.”

***”Designate China as a currency manipulator.”

***”Direct every agency in government to begin identifying all wasteful job-killing regulations, and they are going to be removed.”

***”Get rid of gun-free zones [in] schools” and “military bases”—which would require repealing a 25-year-old federal law. (“My first day, it gets signed, okay? My first day. There’s no more gun-free zones.”)
