First Trump Came For The Muslims...
By Ernest Stewart
"Steven Mnuchin is the Forrest Gump of the financial crisis -- he managed to participate in all the worst practices on Wall Street.
"His selection as Treasury Secretary should send shivers down the spine of every American who got hit hard by the financial crisis, and is the latest sign that Donald Trump has no intention of draining the swamp and every intention of running Washington to benefit himself and his rich buddies." ~~~ U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren
However, on Monday he nominated longtime ObamaCare nemesis Rep. Tom Price N-Ga to lead the Department of Health and Human Services. So you can kiss goodbye your Medicare, Medicaid, and the two that the Koch Brothers have wet dreams about, Social Security and Food Stamps, too and they'll get their way as Trump has a lock on all three branches of government.
Donald Trump has selected Elaine Chao to be his transportation secretary. Ms. Chao, who, you may recall, is married to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky.
She was named secretary of labor by President George W. Bush in 2001. She served all eight years that Mr. Bush was in office, and was his only cabinet member to do so. She also served as deputy secretary of transportation in the administration of President George H.W. Bush. Meanwhile her family the shipping magnets were continually running 100s of millions of dollars of cocaine in their container ships which benefited not only Madame Choa's family, but her husband's bottom line as well!
Even though it's against the law, on Tuesday, Trump proposed that Americans who protest government policies by burning the flag could lose their citizenship. Donnie said in a 6:55 a.m. Twitter post:
"Nobody should be allowed to burn the American flag - if they do, there must be consequences - perhaps loss of citizenship or year in jail!"
Trump named billionaire investor Wilbur Ross as his secretary of Commerce. What's that 4 billionaires named so far. Talk about letting the fox's guard the henhouse!
He then doubled down by naming Wall Street billionaire Steven Mnuchin, a former Goldman Sachs banker, Secretary of the Treasury. I'd add my 2 cents worth here, but Senator Warren has already beat me to it!
Some folks have wondered why I stopped writing about global warming, to you I say I haven't and will be back at it asap but I need to point out what a disaster this election will be on America. True Global Warming is a far bigger threat to humanity than Trump even though the Donald doesn't believe in global warming and has threatened to pull out of the Paris accords. Not only that but Myron Ebell, a man well-known for his coal industry funded attacks on climate science, is to lead his Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) transition team -- and possibly head the EPA.
Ebell is also extremely well known for his anthropogenic climate disruption (ACD) denial: He is the chairman of the Cooler Heads Coalition, a group of right-wing organizations that "question global warming alarmism and oppose energy-rationing policies." Oh, did I mention 2016 is the warmest year on record, even hotter than 2015 which was then the hottest year on record, hotter even than 2014 which had been the hottest year on record. Do you see a trend America? I wonder if those folks down in Tennessee belive in global warming now, don't you?

So how do you like Bush Lite so far?
And more importantly, what are you planning on doing about it?
Until the next time, Peace!
