The Appointments - Trump's Swamp

Recommended Posts

This is an amazing piece of journalism that really defines how things are stacked against the poor and middle class in America in their struggle to get ahead.  It starts with the corruption in the Obama administration, yes Obama! and ends with Trump's tax breaks and grants to real estate developers.

This is a must see for understanding how the rich got richer after the 2008 crash.  Recall how Trump said he did very well.  Well this explains how people like  Ross and Mnuchin were given banks, yes given, by the Obama administration then foreclosed on over 100, 000 homes.  And that is just the start of the corruption!

Trump nominates Rep. John Ratcliffe to be intel chief

Trump wanted the Texas congressman as director of national intelligence in 2019,
but backed off when Ratcliffe was shown to have inflated his resume.
 
........Among the factors was Ratcliffe's boast on his website that he "put terrorists in prison when, as NBC News reported at the time, there is no evidence he ever prosecuted a terrorism case.

Ratcliffe, a member of the House Intelligence Committee, was among the most strident voices attacking the Russia investigation and advancing questionable notions........

Tuck him away somewhere so that he doesn't pen a tell-all before the election.

I heard accounts that some time back he requested the envoy to Northern Ireland position.  If so, he was either fed up with Trump and his White House or he saw that he could not be what Trump wanted.

Ya gotta admit one thing Fox News and the Twumpcanpoops do know is that if you dazzle this piece of eye candy in front of the average red blooded man, red neck and other wise they are gonna be gobsmacked into believing  everything she says.... 

Wake up CNN, MSNBC, Eye Candy is Dandy for getting out the message to a certain demographic its a biological weapon.  Men are hardwired almost hypnotized towards attractive ladies .

Trump’s Pick for Intelligence Chief Follows a Slew of QAnon Accounts-

John Ratcliffe’s campaign Twitter account follows Pizzagaters, JFK Jr. conspiracists, and a 9/11 Truther account with just one follower besides himself.

 

"..........Ratcliffe’s official, verified campaign Twitter account follows several accounts on the political fringe, including a 9/11 Truther account with just one follower besides himself and four promoting the outlandish QAnon conspiracy theory, which posits that the world is run by a cabal of Democratic pedophile-cannibals — and has been ruled a potential source of domestic terrorism by the FBI. 

.....The conspiracy theorists followed by Ratcliffe, whose nomination for director of national intelligence goes before the Senate intelligence committee Tuesday morning, cover a bizarre range of beliefs.

They posit that John F. Kennedy Jr. faked his death to help Trump to take down the Deep State. Others claim a Democratic sex dungeon exists in in a Washington pizzeria. But Ratcliffe and the QAnon promoters he follows have one thing in common: utter loyalty to Trump...........

.....“He has little experience in intelligence, and already had to withdraw his nomination once after lying about his resume. The pandemic has shown how putting unqualified loyalists in critical jobs leads to disaster,” said Wyden. “Any Republican who cares for the security of our country should think hard about the consequences of supporting the least qualified, most partisan person ever nominated for DNI.”

But that attests to the expectation on the committee for a party-line vote – which will be enough to advance Ratcliffe’s nomination to the full Senate, where his confirmation can proceed on the same basis. 

Opposition to Ratcliffe had been bipartisan the last time Trump nominated him to run Liberty Crossing, the DNI’s headquarters, in 2019. It lasted a week before Ratcliffe withdrew, .............

Louis DeJoy, a North Carolina businessman who has given millions to the Republican Party, has been named the new postmaster general. Democrats criticized his appointment, calling him a “partisan political donor with no credentials.”
 
........."The idea that we would appoint and accept the appointment of a partisan political donor with no credentials ... is reckless and irresponsible ... and a stick in the eye by Trump to a service Americans count on every day," Rep. Gerry Connolly, D-Va., told NPR. ........

Pompeo's elite taxpayer-funded dinners raise new concerns

The secretary of state's exclusive "Madison Dinners" have featured guest lists heavy on influencers but light on diplomatic invitees.

"......Until the coronavirus shut them down in March, the gatherings were known as "Madison Dinners" — elaborate, unpublicized affairs that Pompeo and his wife, Susan Pompeo, began in 2018 and held regularly in the historic Diplomatic Reception Rooms on the government's dime.

 

State Department officials involved in the dinners said they had raised concerns internally that the events were essentially using federal resources to cultivate a donor and supporter base for Pompeo's political ambitions — complete with extensive contact information that gets sent back to Susan Pompeo's personal email address.........

About the Author

Lachlan Markay and Asawin "Swin" Suebsaeng are investigative and White House reporters for The Daily Beast. Before joining the publication, Suebsaeng worked for Mother Jones and the Bangkok Post, and Markay wrote for the Washington Free Beacon and the Heritage Foundation. NPR has compared the unlikely duo to "Bert and Ernie." Trump acolyte Sebastian Gorka has accused one of them of having a cocaine habit and the other of having no moral center.

Review

"It almost reads like if Hunter S. Thompson wrote a true crime book about politics.”—Business Insider

“A dishy takedown of the mediocrities, charlatans, and grifters populating the corridors of power in D.C. .  . . Markay and Suebsaeng are so breathless that it's like reading Kenneth Anger's Hollywood Babylon after a healthy diet of Peter Biskind and David Thomson . . . Readers who can't get enough dirt on Trump and associates will revel in it.”—Kirkus Reviews

"Irreverent, darkly humorous . . . [The authors’] colorful prose . . .  and their jibes frequently contain sharp insights into ‘Trumpworld.’” —Publishers Weekly
