Appointees, Corey Booker, Pissgate, People Power

 
Hearings began on the Trump cabinet appointees. Jeff Sessions the Attorney General pretended he was not racist or homophobic. The Exxon Mobile CEO Secretary of State pretended to care about climate change. Ben Carson was unable to rule out conflict of interest for Trump. Corey Booker pretended to give a fuck about anything other than his presidential ambitions in 2020. That is the gist of things.

Corey Booker also voted down an bill that would allow medications to be imported from Canada, effectively lowering the price. Progressives already see him as Hillary Clinton 2.0. If he was smart he would side with progressives in most cases instead he'll be view as a tool of corporations. He's fucking his chances.

I would cover pissgate, but I don't have time to cover bullshit.

The republicans wanted to gut the House Ethics Committee but the population pushed back hard with phone calls and their plans were stopped. The lesson here is people power does work on occasion provided it is effective. Although the move wouldn't have affected corporations so I guess it has limited power. You should absolutely use people power when you can get results. Also it is critical to use it on so-called left-wing governments like Obama and Bill Clinton. The people shouldn't go to sleep just because their men (or women) are in power. You should argueably fight harder when you encounter more receptive people.

Schumer, Pelosi, War Room

 
Chuck Schumer is an idiot; he leads the Democrates in the Senate and has said that the Republicans will pay a price for not voting on a Supreme Court justice "In time". "In time"? What the fuck? You just had an election. The time to make them pay was then. Instead you sat on your ass while Hillary Clinton painted Republicans as not as extreme as Donald Trump. Chuck is just as moronic and stupid as Hillary Clinton. He said that for every blue collar worker they shun; they'll pick up two Republican votes. How the fuck did that work out? Not well.

Nancy Pelosi is also an idiot because she said in an interview that the Republicans won't try to Repeal the Affordable Care Act. Apparently the Republicans trying to do just that 45 million times since its inception is no indication of anything. Republicans seem totally cool with the Affordable Care Act. What fucking fantasy world do the Democrates live in? Legislation has since been introduced, to repeal the Affordable Care Act, with the added bonus of defunding Planned Parenthood, because fuck women! Luckily this bonus is too extreme for some Republicans and it is unlikely to be accepted. Donald Trump has claimed he will keep the A.C.A. My prediction is they will probably try to gut the legislation, at minimum.

Meanwhile the Democrates have built a "War Room" for fighting Donald Trump filled with former Hillary campaign staffers, because they just did a bang up job during the election they just lost!

Israel, Russia, Lunatic

 
12 countries called out Israel for building settlements, the US didn't veto. I am pleased but it's too little to late from the Obama Administration. The government of Israel has proceeded to cut ties with many of the countries. OK, they are really only hurting themselves by doing that. The non veto and the resolution for that matter is largely symbolic; it doesn't do anyway and in 2 minutes Trump will take over. He and the Republicans will continue to kiss the ass of Israel's government. Some members of Trump's upcoming cabinet favor a one state solution; absurd position because the rest of the UN and the more progressive fractions of Israel will never agree to this. Even the right wing government of Israel is not outwardly for this position. Fantasy land in Trump's administration.

Obama has place new sanctions on Russia for alleged interference in the election. The CIA still has not released evidence. Whatever Obama. Trump will just come in and reverse it. Perhaps if Obama had not pushed the TPPA Hillary would of had a better shot. Also if the deal is really dead (I'm still skeptical) pushing the deal accomplished you nothing, and probably would have hurt Democrates in the long run. Congratulations on being stupid and fucking your own base. You can just go join Bill Clinton on being a poor excuse of a Democrate. Luckily for him he's still massively popular. By the way if the Republicans let him do a "Grand Bargain" that would have cut Social Security he probably wouldn't be as popular at this time. The next President will go in the opposite direction.

In random lunatic news Rodrigo Duterte who is President of the Philippines threatened to throw corrupt officials off a helicopter as he "has done before". He may be the only person in the world that makes Trump look sane and reasonable. This guy is an absolute lunatic and I hope that he is voted out promptly.

John Bolton, Russia, Clinton

 
John Bolton is a deplorable human being; strong supporter of the Iraq war, never met a war that he didn't like. For a long time it appeared that he would get the number two job at the State Department. New reports alleged that this is not happening because Trump doesn't like his Moustache. I feel like I am writing satire, but apparently this is a real thing that happened. Chris Christie's weight was also a factor is his VP pick; Christie didn't get the job. This information is from anonymous sources within the Trump team, but an open source John Miller said that presentation was very important.

The Russia ambassador to Turkey has been assassinated and from what I can gather it's because of Russia's support of the Syrian government. I strongly dislike the Russian leadership but would never wish something like this to happen. I was beginning to think that there may be some advantages to Trump and Putin being pows, then Putin announced that Russia will be expanding their nukes. Donald Trump announced the same. So we may have a nuclear arms race. This is a disaster. However in the short term it may be peaceful, that could be a good thing even though I predict Russia will take more territory.

Continuing to beat the Hillary Clinton dead horse. There was a story out saying that Clinton refused help from the Sanders camp and the words "Fucking Ignored" came up. Now OK if your position is Sanders lost the primary why would Clinton want help from losers? OK. Fair point but the fact is that Sanders won most of the open primaries, where independent voters could vote. This includes some states where Hillary Clinton lost in the general election. The Sanders camp were offering Clinton their strategies for the election. The theme of the Hillary Clinton campaign is arrogance. They just assumed all along that she will win. Didn't really work out, did it?

Hackings, Picks, Fake News

 
There are claims that Russia did hacking to influence the election. First allegation is the Clinton campaign chair Emais the second is the vote itself. Sources from the CIA is alleging Russia hacked the emails, if so they should release the evidence instead of allowing all sorts of conspiracies about whether the CIA is lying to take place. I don't see a reason why they would lie. I don't see the government going after Russia considering Trump and Putin are best friends. Unless it's a super long game by the Democrates for after Trump; I think that is far fetched. However many people are skeptical about these allegations, if the CIA has creditable proof they should release it otherwise people will remain skeptical. It is an open question on whether they hacked the vote itself; there was a story out today about the voting machine security checking agency being hacked into; this could have exposed security secrets. I know they at least attempted to hack voting machines in at least two states months before the election. At minimum they should do a full audit.

Sarah Palin and Mitt Romney are apparently not getting positions. Exxon Mobile CEO is in the running for Secretary of State. I actually like this apportionment; there's no better way of signaling that you're a tool for a corporations than appointing an oil CEO as Secretary of State. It is a giant fuck you to people that voted for Trump to drain the swamp. A percentage of them will not vote for him next time.

Hillary Clinton made a speech about how damaging fake news is. (ironic considering she voted for the war in Iraq based on fake news) She thinks the government should crack down on it. Yet it's Democrates that are always gleeful about doing interviews with Fox News. If you really want to address fake news the first step would be to stop treating Fox News as a legitimate news organization; beyond batshit crazy conspiracies like PizzaGate that conspiracy outlets push there was a shooting at Planned Parenthood because of fake news by Fox News which incorrectly claimed Planned Parenthood was selling aborted fetuses. If their solution is to have the government decide what is news that is nonsense; does Hillary Clinton really want the Donald Trump to have such powers? However i don't have a problem with liable laws if the published claim can be proved untrue. I would argue that it is perfectly acceptable for the government to very heavily fine a news organization for someone commiting a violent or terroristic act based on false information that they got from the organization. However be very careful how you verify the information is false. A government body alone is not enough.

Heads, Iran, Carrier, Apprentice

 
Ben Carson is up for the department of Housing and Urban Department. People find this bizarre considering he's a brain surgeon and has no experience in housing planning. Some believe he only got it because Trump thinks the word urban relates to black people. "Urban? Where's African-American? Tremendous!" Carson previously labelled the department a communist department; now he may lead it. I am thinking wouldn't Surgeon General as a position made more sense. Similarly Rick Perry is considered for the Department Of Energy; a department he said that he wanted to eliminate during his famous "Opps" line. The new proposed head of the "Department of Environmental" known by everyone other than Trump as the Environmental Protection Agency actually sued the E.P.A. numerous times, he also donated to the Trump campaign what a wild coincidence bahahaha. This is right wing 101: They assign people to departments that hate government; when the department turns to shit they turn around and say government does not work. This is how the game is played.

If you are afraid Donald Trump will tear up the Iran deal, it seems the Republicans have done it for him. House Republicans have voted to put sanctions on Iran; a violation of the deal. Why? I will just parrot Kyle from Secular Talk "HEAD ASS, HEAD! RIGHT UP THE ASS! HEAD ASS ASSY ASS ASS" I interpret this as the Republicans (or defence contractors) war with Iran. However there is one other explanation; they just hate Obama and want to destroy everything he has accomplished. Either way, I predict there will be a fresh push to go to war with Iran.

Trump did a deal with Carrier to keep jobs in America. A win for him on face value but under the surface he was only able to save 33% of the jobs they said they were sending to Mexico, and apparently some of them they never intended to ship out. He only did this through Corporate Welfare and promising to gut regulations. Additionally they're spending the Corporate Welfare on automation which means some of the jobs remaining will be lost anyway. A quick win for Trump but in reality the deal is a lemon.

Trump has reportedly signed on to be an Executive Producer of the Celebrity Apprentice. What the fuck? He has one job! Literally! He's the President of the United States! It is not appropriate to moonlight on a reality TV show Donald Trump! I wonder if he will be credited as President Trump. Not even Hillary Clinton would be arrogant enough to get money directly from a corporation; it would go through the Clinton Foundation. Could the corporation paying Trump get special favors? They're probably banking on it. Fuck you Hillary Clinton for losing to this baffoon! Does Trump really need the 50K per episode considering he's the president? The Clintons made tens of millions afterwards. I know he's old, but really? So called billionaire takes money for a reality TV show while President. You can't make this shit up! In other news he is supposed to get an intelligence briefing everyday but only wants them once per week. This guy is a total clown and probably will get impeached.

Administration of deplorables

 
The administration of deplorables continues; Sarah Palin is apparently going to lead the VA, though maybe she quits half way through like she did Governor. Mitt Romney is a possible Secretary of State; the same Mitt Romney that dedicated a speech to saying what a failure Donald Trump was. Trump's former campaign manager is not happy and has bashed Romney in the media since the announcement. The probable education secretary is a big fan of giving vouchers for private schools. This takes funds out of the public system. You may think that this is fine and good until they start reducing or eliminating vouchers. I've saved the worst to last; the probable Treasury Secretary foreclosed on homes that was occupied by old people. In one case the payment was off by 27 cents; I'm not making this up! He has worked for numerous banks; even started one. He also fund raised for Donald Trump so this appears to be a reward. Trump has drained the swamp, of water and found some sharks and snakes to put into his administration.

If you thought that since Trump won the election he wouldn't be tweeting offensive crap you are wrong. His explanation on why he lost the popular vote is that a few million illegal immigrants voted for Hillary. It turns out there is no creditable evidence to this and it is a conspiracy theory brought to you by InfoWars and Alex Jones! What is he going to Tweet about next? Chemtrials? 9/11 was an inside job? Lizard people? InfoWars and Fox News shouldn't be considered legitimate news sources for the president.

After a Fox News story; Trump also tweeted that flag burning should be illegal punished by lost of citizenship or jail. The courts have established for a long time that you can't take away citizenship as a form of punishment and flag burning is a form of constitutionally protected free speech. Hillary Clinton once proposed fines for flag burning. Both of them are wrong. I don't like flag burning as a form of protest but recognize they have a right to do it. I would rather figure out why they are doing it rather than getting hung up over the symbolism; they are just burning material when it comes down to it.

Jill Stien, Trump

 
Since the election Jil Stien has been busy. First she filed lawsuits alleging both Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton broke campaign finance rules. Second she has raised money for some recounts in several key states. It probably won't change the electoral results but it appears more than the Clinton camp is doing. Other people have been trying to get the Electoral College representatives to go with the popular vote instead of the Electoral College result. Turns out the Electoral College results are not binding and can be changed willy nilly, who knew? If I was Clinton I would be lobbying hard for this as Clinton won the popular vote by over 2 million. If your position is Clinton lost the Electoral College and that's that, that is entirely fair and is probably the correct position. However if I was Clinton I would be like "Fuck it" and would certainly go for it.2 million votes is 2 million votes. Some people think that Al Gore didn't fight hard enough. Fighting doesn't seem like Democrate's strong point even when they're in office.

In flip flop number #31926 Donald Trump now thinks that climate change is real and that humans are causing it. This makes a change from his previous position of climate change being a hoax. The change is positive but I wonder if he will set a record for flip flops.

In other news Trump registered about 7 companies in Saudi Arabia just before the election. Apparently this is all legal. So basically don't expect any action from him on things like human rights abuses and funding 9/11 hijackers. The Clintons also had financial ties to Saudi Arabia, so it matters little who is president and more where the money comes from.

Upcoming administration is already a shitshow

 
The upcoming Trump Administration is already a shitshow, did you really expect any different? Trump met with Obama and didn't seem to understand what responsibilities the president has according to a video by David Pakman, he doesn't want to live in the white house. TheYoungTurks did a video outlining the different factions of the Trump Administration: corporatists, alt right nazi types, special interest donors and family. One of Trump's main advisers hates jews. The factions are fighting each other. If Trump had any sense he'd dump the neonazi types; but of course Trump is Trump so he made one his top adviser.

People say give him a chance. No! His chance was the campaign and he was massacring that every two weeks. OBAMA IS THE FOUNDER OF ISIS! FOUNDER FOUNDER FOUNDER! THAT WOMAN IS UGLY. Terrible campaign, didn't deserve to win. The only reason he won was he was running against Hillary Clinton. Ironically people thought Trump was a grand conspiracy to let Clinton win. If you wanted to give him a chance after his campaign. OK. His chance ends with appointing white supremacst, jew haters and people who want to throw Muslims in camps to his administration. Chance over! I predict this will be a deeply unpopular administration and will only last four years.

There are silver linings; he is not going ahead with the more extreme policies such as building a wall, mass deporting of illegal immigrants, and even repealling the Affordable Care Act. However his administration still has deplorable people in it and this should not be looked at lightly. There are also indication of Trump going back on his promise not to cut social security but George W Bush couldn't do it when he tried; the population may be even more hostile towards Trump if he tries, it probably won't be done under Trump in my opinion.

Donald Trump has settled his Trump University lawsuit for 15 million dollars. Basically a person with a history of being a fraudster is about to be president. He still has at least one sexual assault lawsuits to deal with. Crooked Hillary? Crooked both!

Clinton lost, Trump won

 
Donald Trump is the next president of the United States. Oh fuck. I could rant at voters and that could be coming, but first...

The reason this happened can be summed up in two words: Hillary Clinton! If you think otherwise you're living in a fucking fantasy world. She was a bad politician, people know her record, people hate her record, the name Clinton has been demonized for 30 years, people on the right hate her, people on the left dislike her; a dozen scandals, play for play allegations, email server, FBI investigation, unconvincing and politically arrogant. I am sure I have forgotten points.

There were polls about a year ago and 55% or more found her unfavourable, she only did slightly better than Donald fucking Trump! For people that ignored this fact YOU WERE FUCKING WRONG AND PEOPLE HATED YOUR CANDIDATE!

Oh hall the mighty Clinton Machine, that didn't win in 2008 and couldn't win in 2016. Now Chelsea Clinton is considering a senate run. For fuck sakes. The Clintons need to fuck off. I'm done with them, I'm done with their supporters. Clinton supporters are reality deniers and are just as misguided as republicans.

Clinton did not offer any hope. Her entire campaign can be summed up as "I'm not Donald Trump" and "I'm with her". That's such a shitty slogan by the way, Why the fuck wasn't it #ShesWithYou. Apparently the idiots at her campaign couldn't think of that, I know "I'm with her" has history, but it was politician centered rather than voter centered. People vote for REPRESENTATIVES, you're supposed to REPRESENT them, or at the very least act like you do! Demonizing Donald Trump by itself didn't work, she needed to get people excited, give them something to vote for, she never did that convincingly! Millennials just didn't believe her; she needed to do better. You don't do this by pissing on Bernie Sanders supporters, I admit eventually this did sink in, but it was months too late.

She got the endorsement of people like Henry Kissenger and other deplorables; namely neocons. If you are into compromise; fine, but understand there's a difference between compromise and blowing the other side kisses.

Martin O'Malley didn't have an email server in his house, neither did Bernie Sanders, neither did Corey Booker, Joe Biden, Elizabeth Warren and countless others. Nobody made Hillary have an email server in her house. I don't give a fuck about Colin Powell; he did not have a FBI investigation just before an election. Brilliant idea for Obama to put a republican in charge of the FBI. Fan fucking tastic.

Hillary did things that she did not have to do and were politically dumb, and not just in the previous campaign cycle. In all likelihood this cost her the election.

90% of other Democrates didn't have as many problems as Hillary Clinton and would have wiped the floor with Donald Trump. Sure Republicans would have made up stuff, but no name is as damaged on the Democrate side than Clinton. It wouldn't have had such of an effect.

Clinton won because of racists they say. How the fuck did a black guy win twice then? You could make an argument for mobilization but Hillary was also rubbish at mobilization; particularly with young voters.

You couldn't have had Bernie Sanders as the nominee because of anti Jewish hate. OK and people who hate jews would have voted for Trump that even without a jew in the race was already retweeting neo nazi propaganda. Jew S A was a chant at Trump rallies. I am pretty fucking sure Donald Trump had the antisemite vote on lock down already.

People hate socialism they say. Possibly, but people voted for Obama because of change, people voted for Trump partly because of change. Hillary Clinton didn't offer change, Bernie Sanders would have. Donald Trump was against trade deals or so he says; Bill Clinton pushed through NAFTA. Donald Trump couldn't have said the same about Jane Sanders. Hillary Clinton already named Bill Clinton as a top economic adviser; Trump wouldn't have riled up the anti trade sentiment as effectively; Sanders also spoke against TPPA and NAFTA. Even though Hillary Clinton also was apparently anti TPPA; she just wasn't creditable.

I am not in the camp of Bernie Sanders would have definitely won like almost all progressive pundits I listen to. I think that the media would have massively sided with Trump and it would be a massive gamble. However I do think that he would have a decent shot. Doesn't matter now. Hillary Clinton was chosen and that was a mistake; irrelevant if you wanted Bernie; I certainly did. Again 90% of other Democrates would have crushed a monster like Donald Trump.

Just because you are fine with Hillary Clinton giving speeches to banks etc. doesn't mean everyone else is. A mistake in politics is assuming people feels the same way. I used to make that mistake; I learned that lesson after the 2011 election; I was even gullible enough to believe that the polls were massively wrong. The same people were still singing that conspiracy in 2014. This also that proves just because you are on the left does not mean you're not batshit crazy on some issues. Clinton supporters are the perfect example.

Obama won because he was a good actor, Hillary Clinton was not. As Cenk Uygur said "people wanted to throw a brick through the establishment window" The left didn't come with a convincing brick, it came with Corporate Clinton. People voted for Obama not knowing that he was a corporatist. He was the CHANGE candidate but that change was really code for making "republicans and democrates to get along". He failed miserably at this, just like Hillary Clinton would have. Republicans launched about a billion investigations about her and impeached her husband over a blow job; they weren't going to get along with President Clinton and it's utterly delusional to think otherwise.

Clinton didn't have to go out of her way to say she would work with Republicans. People just want a leader who will fight for them. Compromise is best left until after the election. Even her own strategy team and party insiders thought that being so buddy buddy with the republicans was a bad strategy and was going to hurt down ballot Democrates. Arrogant Clinton didn't listen, her strategy sucked. She is a terrible politician. If she said I have been defending the people against republicans for 30 years and know how to make them get things done; that would have been a better strategy.

Gary Johnson took more from Trump than Jill Stien took from Hillary. Millennial turnout was also disastrous. People won't vote for a candidate if they aren't inspired to do so. You can blame Millennials all day long but the fact is Hillary Clinton didn't inspire people to vote for her; it's a fucking big part of her job. If nobody comes to your concert, would you blame the people or the singer. Of course you would blame the singer.

I do think that it is very unfortunate that America won't have a woman president, they simply chose the wrong woman.

I don't care that she won the popular vote, if she was a competent politician she would have gained enough support in swing states to win the electoral college, she didn't because she is a deeply unliked candidate. A portion of her voters only voted for Clinton to prevent Trump from taking the White House.

Hillary Clinton lost, because Hillary Clinton was shit candidate; almost universally disliked and would have gotten slaughtered if she ran against a more likable republican. As stated in the beginning; you're living in your own fucking fantasy world if you think otherwise.

Finally just because I'm done with Clinton supporters doesn't mean we can't be friends. I do genuinely believe that her supporters are fucking idiots when it comes to the topic of Hillary Clinton specifically; however many people are smart in some areas and stupid in others; that is just how humans operate. I can put aside our differences, but if you're going to be Clinton apologists; I will view you as batshit insane on the subject and frankly have no interest in your defenses or excuses. Hillary Clinton was a shit candidate; end of story.

This is the longest I've ranted on any one subject; on to Donald Trump.

George W Bush on steroids was just elected. What an absolute clusterfuck. Even Hillary Clinton would be better than this baffoon, are you fucking shitting me America? What the fuckidy fuck fuck. Just because I hate Hillary Clinton doesn't mean that Donald Trump was an acceptable choice. I also hate Donald Trump. He bankrupted 6 companies including several casinos. The guy is incompetent and probably has some kind of self destructive tendencies going on. Also the guy is unpopular; does loathsome things, and a good case can be made that this trait is intentional; I know a person that I suspect of having Narcissistic Personality Disorder and it's clear that he deliberately fucks people off to make people hate him, and no I'm not talking about myself. Self destructive tendencies combined with this is a toxic combination. Now he has an army and nuclear codes; good luck!

I am not going to lecture you that he is racist; everyone else can do that; it is however concerning that his election will empower racists.

If you really thought that President Trump wasn't going to screw you, then you are the most gullible people on the planet; he's a pathological liar. I don't believe him when he says he'll stop outsourcing, he personally benefits from outsourcing. The only way he'll stop the TPPA is if he brings it back under a different name. Very likely he will just pass the TPPA. However the New Zealand Publicity Clown which other people call the Prime Minister says it's dead in the water, so I could be wrong.

Corporate America is lining up to work with President Trump as I predicted; I am only surprised this didn't happen much sooner. Donald Trump is the establishment with a clown mask.

In conclusion: Fuck Corporate Clinton! Fuck Donald Trump! America was presented with two hideous choices but chose the more hideous one. (kind of, Corporate Clinton won the popular vote) I'll be watching with morbid curiosity. I regretted not being politically aware in the George W Bush years. You have over delivered. I await either impeachment or a massive disaster/collapse. This does not end any other way.
