Trump Fills the Swamp with Corporate Billionaires

How Trump the populist became Trump the corporate shill

Just before his inauguration six months ago, Donald Trump said in a news conference that pharmaceutical companies are “getting away with murder.” Trump correctly noted that “we’re the largest buyer of drugs in the world, and yet we don’t bid properly” because of a law that bars the government from negotiating with drug companies and lowering prices for Medicare beneficiaries.

When TRUMP was campaigning for President he promised to “Make America Great Again”, “Drain the Swamp”, and “The forgotten men and women of our country will be forgotten no longer.”

By the cabinet appointments and actions being taken by Republicans, it is clear those promises were a LIE.

After his famous pledge to “drain the swamp,” Trump issued a weak executive order allowing former lobbyists to immediately join the administration and then granted waivers to top White House staffers that render the ethics rules largely meaningless.

More than 30 former lobbyists in the Trump administration work on the same issues they lobbied on over the past two years and have not received a waiver.

Conflicts are appearing all over government: Auto industry lobbyists are setting transportation policy. Boeing has a top perch at the Department of Defense. Wall Street bankers and their lawyers are in control of economic policy and financial regulations.

 

Trump promised to “Hire the Best People” but is hiring the worst, most incompetent people imaginable who got their positions, not as a result of being qualified, but a reward for being Republican Party Loyalists.

 

Steve Bannon admits Trump’s Cabinet Nominees were selected to destroy the Agencies they were Hired to Head

Trump nominated people to cabinet positions who were either unqualified or has a history of wanting to destroy the agency they were appointed to head. Now we find out the TRUE reason… it’s because they were selected to Destroy the Agencies they were appointed to head as admitted by Steve Bannon in the above video.

Has Trump, Bannon and those engaged in this effort committed Sedition?

According to the definition of Sedition: The crime of creating a revolt, disturbance, or violence against lawful civil authority with the intent to cause its overthrow or destruction.

Although no violence is being used, it appears that overthrow and destruction of various Government Agencies was plotted and intended

Trump’s Labor Secretary Pick, Andrew Puzder Is Critic of Minimum Wage Increases

A article from the New York Times stated that Puzder sees “a role for government to provide advice to employers, rather than deterrence by ‘gotcha’ enforcement. This seems to indicate that he be on businesses side like most typical Republicans and will not stand up for workers who are abused by employers.

Labor Secretary nominee’s company underpays workers, group says

Why shouldn’t Mr. Andrew Puzder become Secretary of Labor? He has all the qualifications to become a perfect fit for the Trump administration. He’s a billionaire. He pays his employees starvation wages. He receives an enormous amount of corporate welfare as taxpayers are forced to provide food stamps, Medicaid and publicly assisted housing to keep his low wage workers alive. And he knows nothing about the job he is about to take. Sounds like the perfect nominee.

The real reason why trump picks Exxon CEO Rex Tillerson

Video title (Rachel Maddow): Exxon needs US policy change to cash in on big bet on Russia

Rachel Maddow shows ExxonMobil’s heavy investment in Russia, which it has yet to be able to exploit because of U.S. sanctions on Russia over the annexation of Crimea, and how a change in that policy could means hundreds of millions of dollars for ExxonMobil.

.

Rex Tillerson, 64, has ties to Russian President Vladimir Putin

Tillerson, who has spent his entire adult life working at ExxonMobil, has no experience in government or in diplomacy. In fact, if confirmed, Tillerson would join an unprecedented and hard-to-fathom operation: in the Trump administration, the combined foreign policy experience of the president, Secretary of State, and U.S. ambassador to the United Nations is quite literally zero. Americans have simply never seen such a team.

What Tillerson has done, however, is work closely with Vladimir Putin, and spoken out in opposition to U.S. sanctions on Russia – the country accused of criminal intervention in the American political system. When making the case for Tillerson over the weekend, Trump boasted to Fox News, “He does massive deals in Russia.”

Betsy Devos Appointment as Education Secretary

Video title: Public (School) Enemy No. 1: Billionaire Betsy DeVos, Trump’s Pick for Education Secretary

Video description: Donald Trump nominated conservative billionaire Betsy DeVos to serve as Education Secretary. DeVos is the former chair of the Michigan Republican Party and a longtime backer of charter schools and vouchers for private and religious schools.

In response, American Federation of Teachers President Randi Weingarten said, “In nominating DeVos Trump makes it loud and clear that his education policy will focus on privatizing, defunding and destroying public education in America.” Since 1970, the DeVos family has invested at least $200 million in various right-wing causes. DeVos’s father-in-law is the co-founder of Amway and her brother is Erik Prince, founder of the mercenary firm Blackwater.

The measure, which passed with more than 51% backing in November, would have created an independent ethics commission, limited lobbyist gifts to lawmakers, banned officials from joining lobbying firms for two years after leaving office and created so-called “Democracy vouchers” for registered voters to steer toward their preferred candidates.

Trump and GOP killed an energy anti-corruption rule for no good reason, advocates say

The goal is to prevent foreign leaders from skimming off the payments that drillers and miners make to their countries. Such corruption, which enriches the politically connected but deprives regular people of their country’s mineral wealth, is known as the “resource curse.”

Opinion: Republicans Are Colluding With Trump To Conceal His Corruption

Republicans know what collusion means, but they must consider Donald Trump much more than a family member because they conspired to help him conceal his corruption by aiding his attempt at keeping his tax returns out of the public’s eye.

President Trump plans to order a rollback Friday of regulations governing the financial services industry and Wall Street under the Dodd-Frank law and beyond, a White House source confirmed.

While both directives will take time to implement, they will send an unmistakable signal that the new administration is determined to promote fossil-fuel production and economic activity even when those activities collide with some environmental safeguards.

Bush caused ISIS by invading Iraq and his unprovoked invasion destabilized the region by taking out Saddam Hussein. If George W. Bush hadn’t invaded Iraq, there would have been no ISIS, so once again Donald Trump lied to get applause, cheers and score points with his followers who hate President Obama.

Donald Trump made a statement to NRA members that “Hillary Clinton wants to abolish the 2nd amendment”. That statement is a LIE and was clearly made to score points with NRA members and the Republican base who hates Hillary Clinton.

Supreme Court Stolen From The American People

2000-election-rigged-4

The Theft of the Presidency and the United States Supreme Court Started with the 2000 Election

The Jeb Bush Administration Rigged the 2000 election by illegally purging thousands of Black voters off the voter rolls. This illegal voter purge allowed George W. Bush to be illegitimately installed as President by 537 votes.

Al Gore received a 543,895 Vote Majority over George W. Bush. If there were a REAL Democracy in the United States, Al Gore would have been President and the Supreme Court would have & should have been Liberal because Bush appointed 2 Justices.

Here’s the details…

Jeb Bush was the Republican Governor of the State of Florida and brother of the Republican Presidential candidate George W. Bush.

Republican Secretary of State, Katherine Harris was also co-chair of Bush’s 2000 Presidential Florida campaign, clearly a conflict of interest in conducting a fair and impartial election.

Jeb Bush and Katherine Harris promised to “Deliver Florida” to George W. Bush

Secretary of State, Katherine Harris and Governor Jeb Bush had the motive and the means to make sure Florida’s decisive electoral votes were “delivered” to George W. Bush.

They accomplished this by illegally purging thousands of black voters off of the Florida voter rolls, ensuring an unfair advantage to George W. Bush, as shown in the above video.

Antonin Scalia and his conservative majority of 5 “justices” subverted democracy & engaged in partisan politics by stopping the 2000 election vote count. The above video explains the shocking details.

This caused George W. Bush to be installed as President. At the time the votes were stopped by the Supreme Court, there were only 154 votes separating Al Gore from George W. Bush.

If Gore had been president, we would have had a Liberal Supreme Court because Bush appointed 2 justices.

It was therefore Jeb Bush’s illegal voter purge and Antonin Scalia who subverted Democracy by not allowing the votes to be counted that caused the installation of George W. Bush and the US to have a conservative majority in the Supreme Court.

Also to blame was the Out-dated, UN-Democratic Electoral College which allowed the George W. Bush to be awarded the Presidency when he lost the popular vote by 543,895 votes.

This is NOT democracy… it’s is the type of rigged government you find in Dictator Banana Republics.

REPUBLICANS MADE AN AGREEMENT TO BLOCK PRESIDENT OBAMA ON EVERYTHING

gop-traitors

When President Obama was elected President in 2008, Republicans made an agreement to Block Obama on EVERYTHING. That obstruction continued throughout Obama’s Presidency and included Republican’s Blocking Obama’s Supreme Court Nominee, Merrick Garland.

Republicans proved they didn’t give a Dam about Democracy or the Millions of Americans who voted for President Obama by blocking him on everything and by blocking his Supreme Court Nominee.

Republicans failed to put their Country and Citizens first and proved all they cared about was Politics and Maintaining Power.

ELECTIONS RIGGED BY GERRYMANDERING

Republicans has also shown they don’t give a Dam about Democracy or the Will of the People by Gerrymandering Districts all over the US so they can’t be voted out of office. Gerrymandering is Election Rigging.

republican-gerrymandering1

Republicans injected $30 million, much of it from dark money contributions into state races in 2010, often targeting vulnerable blue state Democrats in races that wouldn’t otherwise draw a lot of national funding. The plan was called REDMAP (full story here).

THESE EVENTS & ACTIONS PROVE THERE IS NO REAL DEMOCRACY IN THE UNITED STATES

Republicans Disrespected the Will of the People by Blocking and refusing to even consider President Obama’s Supreme Court Pick.

As you can see, our Government is a mess. It has allowed the losers of the popular vote to be declared the winner twice in the past 16 years. Republicans has no motivation to make any changes because they are benefiting from how screwed up our Government is.

There will be no REAL Democracy in the United States until the Electoral College is abolished and Gerrymandering is made illegal. Democrats need to stand up and fight for Democracy.

repubs-blocked-obamas-court-pick

Considering how Republicans has managed to steal two Elections and two seats on the Supreme Court, Democrats should do everything possible to block Trump’s Supreme Court Nominee, unless a compromise is reached making the Nominee, Merrick Garland.

THE ELECTORAL COLLEGE

For the second time in the past 16 years, a candidate who received less popular votes has been handed the presidency. In 2000, Al Gore received almost 600,000 more votes than George W. Bush, yet Bush received more electoral votes and was handed the presidency.

In 2016, Hillary Clinton received over one millions more votes than Donald Trump, yet Trump received more Electoral votes and was was handed the presidency.

The”Will of the People” is violated when a candidate who received less popular votes is awarded the Presidency.

There will be no real democracy in the United States until the Electoral College is ended and presidents are elected by popular vote

RIGGING ELECTIONS THROUGH GERRYMANGERING

Most Americans have never heard of Gerrymandering and are unaware that Republicans has rigged elections in their favor for years to come through gerrymandering.

Republicans injected $30 million, much of it from dark money contributions into state races in 2010, often targeting vulnerable blue state Democrats in races that wouldn’t otherwise draw a lot of national funding.  The plan was called REDMAP (full story here).

gerrymandering3

When the midterm elections were done, Republicans had gained unilateral control of 11 state legislatures, upping their total to 25. Between then and the 2012 elections, GOP lawmakers in these states had largely undisputed power over redrawing congressional districts. This helped allow Republicans to maintain control of the House, even though Democrats received over 1 million more votes.

The Republican State Leadership Committee issued a memo stating “Controlling the redistricting process in these states would have the greatest impact on determining how both state legislative and congressional district boundaries would be drawn. Drawing new district lines in states with the most redistricting activity presented the opportunity to solidify conservative policymaking at the state level and maintain a Republican stronghold in the U.S. House of Representatives for the next decade.”

republican-gerrymandering

Through Gerrymandering, Republicans has made it almost impossible to be removed from office in some districts. Since they feel safe from being removed from office, they have no motivation to compromise. They are pursuing radical right wing agendas such as cutting assistance to the poor, cutting planned parenthood funding and passing anti-aborting “War on Women” legislation when the majority of Americans do not support these actions.

Politicians picking their voters is unconstitutional. Gerrymandering is an assault on Democracy.

VOTER OBSTRUCTION

voter-suppression3

Republicans have passed Anti-Democratic voter obstruction laws reducing the days people can vote and laws requiring photo ID’s in states they control like Texas, Ohio, Virginia, Florida and Pennsylvania.

In Ohio they are trying to pass legislation to decrease the number of Voting Machines to make it difficult on people living in larger urban areas which has minorities who typically vote for Democrats.

Republicans cover story on this issue is to decrease “voter fraud”. The fact is, voter fraud has been documented to be practically non- existent. Forbes Magazine calls Voter Fraud “A Massive Anti-Democratic Deception

Paul Weyrich, “father” of the right-wing movement and co-founder of the Heritage Foundation, Moral Majority and various other groups states in this video that he doesn’t want everyone to vote. He still gives weekly strategy sessions to Republicans.

Former FL GOP chair says ‘right-wing crazies’ want to suppress black vote

Former Florida Republican Party Chair Jim Greer testified in a lawsuit filed against his former party that “whack-a-do, right-wing crazies” wanted to suppress the black vote through Voter ID and tactics like current state Gov. Rick Scott’s efforts to purge voter rolls.

Jim Greer, stated “I sat in on many meetings where it was discussed how to make sure what happened in 2008, when Obama brought out the college-aged voters, the minority voters, never happened again”.

91-Year-Old Decorated WWII Veteran Targeted By Florida Governor Rick Scott’s Voter Purge

wwii-vet

Florida Republicans took voter suppression to brazen extremes. After the 2010 election, Republican Gov. Rick Scott instructed Secretary of State Ken Browning to compile a massive database of alleged “non-citizen” voters.  This resulted in a 91-year-old World War II veteran who won a Bronze star being told by the state of Florida to prove he is a citizen or be removed from voter roll.

POLITICAL PARTIES NEED TO BE ABOLISHED

The two Party System has divided this country and caused Americans to hate each other.  It has polarized American citizens and created a “Us against Them” environment.  Eliminating the two party system would solve most of the problems which is destroying this country and Democracy such as Gerrymandering and Voter Suppression.  With no political parties, elected representatives from local to national positions would truly represent their constituents and encourage those in elected office to do what’s best for this country instead of fighting to maintain power.

Republicans Legalize Discrimination in Mississippi

Mississippi Gov. Phil Bryant on Tuesday signed into law House Bill 1523, a measure that prevents government agencies from taking action against state employees, individuals, organizations and private associations that deny services based on religious objections — usually interpreted to mean religious objections against same-sex marriage, transgender rights and even extramarital sexual relationships. The law is set to go into effect in July.

The bills mark the latest developments in what LGBT advocates see as a concerted push among conservative legislatures to blunt or roll back the achievements of the LGBT rights movement, which culminated most notably with the Supreme Court’s decision last year to make marriage equality the law of the land. Although same-sex couples are now able to marry in all 50 states, the LGBT community — particularly transgender Americans — have since encountered new barriers to equality, often in the form of state laws that provide legal cover to religious opponents of same-sex marriage and nondiscrimination protections.

Republicans Block Bills to Help Veterans

republicans-against-vets

Republicans pretend to be the party of patriots and “support our troops” but they have consistently Blocked important Bills to help our Veterans.

In 2014, Senate Republicans blocked a Veterans’ benefits bill  that would have expanded Federal healthcare and education programs for veterans.

President Obama had to threaten to use his veto pen when House Republicans attempting to cut benefits for 70,000 Veterans.

It was revealed that George W. Bush charged a charity for Veterans who lost limbs in Iraq and Afghanistan to hear him speak.

House Republicans attempted to cut food assistance to 170,000 Veterans and their families, while crusading to give greater tax breaks to corporations and the wealthy.

Republicans have demonstrated that they have about as much respect for our Veterans as they do America’s poor, women, minorities and the elderly.

Republicans Block President Obama’s Supreme Court Nominee

Mitch-Supreme-Court-web

petition

Barely an hour after the news broke of the death of Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky) made it clear that he has no intention of letting President Barack Obama replace the conservative icon.  McConnell stated, “The American people‎ should have a voice in the selection of their next Supreme Court Justice”.

McConnell stating that “The American people‎ should have a voice in the selection of their next Supreme Court Justice” is an outrageous statement.  The American people have already spoken… they elected Barack Obama as President and he has nominated a new Supreme Court Justice as required by the United States Constitution.

mcconnell-court

Refusing to consider a Supreme Court Nominee during the last year of this Presidents term is unprecedented. Ronald Reagan nominated a Supreme Court Justice during his last year in office and Mitch McConnell confirmed his Nominee.

Mitch McConnell and Republicans has made blocking President Obama their top priority above serving the American people.

On January 20, 2009, the day of President Obama’s Inauguration, Republican leaders in Congress plotted to obstruct everything President Obama proposed to make his presidency a failure with no regard to how it would negatively affect the American people, so they could win the White House back in 2012.

Those present who attended the meeting included Republicans Paul Ryan, Eric Cantor, Kevin McCarthy, Pete Sessions, Pete Hoekstra, Tom Coburn, Bob Corker and Newt Gingrich who plotted to sabotage, undermine and destroy America’s Economy by among other things “Just Say No” to everything President Obama proposed.

.

On Oct. 29, 2010 Sen. Mitch McConnell stated in an interview with the National Journal, “The single most important thing we want to achieve is for President Obama to be a one-term president.”

Now Mitch McConnell and Republicans plan to block President Obama’s Supreme Court Nominee, Merrick Garland.

In a letter to Mitch McConnell signed by Republicans on the Judiciary Committee which included Chuck Grassley, John Cornyn, Mike Lee, Jeff Sessions, Ted Cruz, Orrin Hatch, Lindsey Graham and Jeff Flake stated “to protect the will of the people, this committee will not hold hearings on any Supreme Court nominee until our next president is sworn in”
