The Appointments - Trump's Swamp


Recommended Posts

Trump’s Labor Secretary Pick: ‘I Like Beautiful Women Eating Burgers In Bikinis’   Andy Puzder heads Carl’s Jr., maker of burgers and soft-porn TV commercials. His job is to protect women’s rights at work...

 

"Jezebel wrote in a post entitled, “Put It in My Mouth: A History of Disgusting Carl’s Jr. Ads.” It’s infuriating because who in their right mind eats a burger with sopping wet hands.”

 

In an interview with Fox in 2015, Puzder defended the half-naked-women-sell-burgers-strategy by saying, essentially, it works. “We always get blowback on the ads … The ads are very effective.

 

They appeal to our young hungry guy demographic.”

 

But sure ― keep teaching young boys that women are just burger-selling, bikini-wearing vehicles for their pleasure. That will definitely send the message that sexual harassment isn’t OK.

If you read Robert Kennedy Jr.'s book you will discover that fossil fuel emissions are just a fraction of the problem when it comes to clean water. The chemical dumping and run off from pig farming, etc from the elimination of regulations is literally poisoning people.

A few years back Bobby jr. actually took a rowboat out to investigate and test the Kansas River. What he found did not surprise us, but it was all the same bad hearing it from him.

 

Kennedy said that large-scale meat producers as well as industrial farms were causing dangerous levels of manure, to find its way into the Kansas River.

 

As a result, he organized a chapter of his Waterkeepers Alliance in Kansas for people in the area to join and survey the river on a regular basis for pollution from Junction City to Kansas City with a Kansas Riverkeepers boat.

 

We also have warnings that people should be boiling the water here and there in small communities at times. But I always boil my drinkng water because I know exactly what the river looks like. No LOL here.

Boil Water Notices generally are issued when there has been a break in a water line or a major repair to one.  During that time, the lines are "open" to the air and dirt around them so bacteria may get into water.  The water providers do testing once the lines are reconnected, but the notices are generally a preventive type action, just in case.

Trump names Goldman-Sachs president Gary Cohn to head National Economic Council.

 

But hey, at least Trump didn't give any paid speeches to Goldman-Sachs ahead of time, or else we'd think something fishy was going on.

Still amused by the amount of furor Trump and his supporters raised about Clinton being paid to give a speech.  Yet zip about Trump filling the administration with G-S employees and former employees.

Worst choices for officials since US Grant probably.  Worst scenario is that Trump will let them do as they please and the GOPers in Congress will be too scared of "The Base" to do anything about it.

To me it comes down to how one defines a Trump 'supporter'.   If one is talking about folks that really like Trump,  well of course those folks are not likely to criticize him and his choices.

 

But if we are talking about those that voted for him but are aware of his many faults,  most that I have talked to have the POV that we need to wait and see what these appointees do before saying they were poor choices.

A source says Giuliani is out as a SOS possibility. Good.

So who is in contention for Sec. of State?  I think top runner is Romney....is Petraeus still in it?   Haven't heard much about him lately.   Would be hysterical if Romney ate dinner with Trump two times and even ate frogs legs - and then Trump winds up picking Petraeus.

 

If it is Petrraeus I hope his wife likes to travel,  because she must have him on a very short lease.

Meet President Trump's Cabinet of Horrors-

@-Rolling Stone

 

"Now that his cabinet is nearly filled out, we have a sense of the qualities Trump believes makes someone "the best": a vast fortune, a decorated military career and/or utter contempt for the agency they've been selected to head and the people that agency was built to serve.

 

At last count, Trump's proposed cabinet had a combined wealth of more than $14.5 billion, included three generals (an unprecedented concentration) and at least one nominee who has twice sued the agency he's now poised to run.

Here's a peek inside Trump's cabinet of horrors.....

So Exxon-Mobil had a $500 billion dollar oil-pipeline deal with Russia that was put on hold by sanctions put into place by the Obama/Democrat administration over the Crimean issue.

 

If Hillary Clinton is elected, the likelihood is very high that the sanctions would continue, and the deal would not ever get off the ground.

 

In a surprise upset, and with no help whatsoever from Russia or Russian interests, Trump is elected president, and names the head of Exxon-Mobil as Secretary of State, the chief diplomat that will be determining if these sanctions will continue.

 

Nothing to see here, folks. Move along, move along.

This reminds me of something Liza Minnelli once said--

 

When Liza was getting married again and she was on David Letterman, Dave wanted to know why she had so many people in her wedding party like Elizabeth Taylor and Michael Jackson and people like that. Well, Liza said if I was a plumber and I worked with plumbers and all I knew were plumbers, I would have plumbers in my wedding party-- but I'm a show person, so that's the way it is.

 

 

Trump is filling his cabinet with people who are just like him or people whose characterists he identifies with or people who can get political or business favors for him.

 

Trump is a big-time International Businessman - - and he identifies with these millionaire CEOs who have made their workers live on slave rations, while cheating shareholders. Elitist white guys, like himself, who have no respect for any kind of regulation that would protect the public or the environment because they've got to make a profit. These are the trickle-down guys.

 

Now for the generals - - those generals are called caudillos in Latin American politics. The strongman generals who handle things either for the caudillo or they are the caudillo-- the military dictator. Everyone knows you can't have a golpe de estado unless you've got the military generals in your pocket and the campesinos don't hurt-- although I would never call hard-working pesants in Latin America deplorable.

Can you imagine how terrible it would be if we had to set down and be friendly with the Russians. It's funny how we both hate Isis but we don't know how to take advantage of working together in an all out war against Isis. I guess you just can't trust the Russians.

 

 

Russian authorities warned the FBI in early 2011 that suspected bomber Tamerlan Tsarnaev may have been a follower of “radical Islam,” a revelation that raised new questions in Congress on Saturday about whether the Boston Marathon attacks that killed three and wounded more than 170 could have been prevented.

As far as I know, Assad is being supported by Putin and the Russians.
