Donald Trump appointed a racist, xenophobic, anti-semite as his chief strategist. So he's off to a good start.

Courtesy of USA Today: 

Donald Trump's decision to make Stephen Bannon, former Breitbart News executive turned campaign CEO, his chief strategist and senior counselor in the White House was met with criticism. 

The Council on American-Islamic Relations condemned Bannon's appointment in a statement, calling him an "anti-Muslim conspiracy theorist and White nationalist alt-right extremist." The council pointed to the alt-right news website he used to run as proof of his views on Muslims and other minorities. 

In the statement, the council's executive director, Nihad Awad, said, "the appointment of Stephen Bannon as a top Trump administration strategist sends the disturbing message that anti-Muslim conspiracy theories and White nationalist ideology will be welcome in the White House."

Trump also appointed "Reince once and Priebus" as his Chief of Staff but that was really just to provide cover for what is sure to be a cabinet filled with an incredibly ill equipped group of internet trolls brought to life who would seem more at home crewing a pirate ship rather than providing counsel to the next, and perhaps final, president of the united states.

Remember before he was Trump's campaign strategist Bannon was Sarah Palin's biggest fan, which proves he just wants to sit back and watch the world burn.

His appointment also means that Trump will be getting all of his "news" from the Alt-Right controlled Breitbart, Alex Jones, and of course those voices in his head.

In short we are fucked!

We are also now learning that Trump was so ill-equipped to take this job that his first meeting with our current President left him shell shocked:  

During Trump's private meeting with President Barack Obama on Thursday, Trump "seemed surprised" by the scope of the president's responsibilities, according to a report from The Wall Street Journal. 

Trump's aides were also apparently unaware that the entire staff of the president working in the White House's West Wing would need to be replaced, according to The Journal. 

Obama reportedly will spend more time counseling Trump about the presidency than most presidents do with their successors.
Wat in the hell did I get myself into?

But don't get your hopes up that Obama will be able to change Trump's perspective in a way that will stick for long, because the minute he is finished talking sense to him Stephen Bannon will return to whisper nastiness into his ear like Gríma Wormtongue did for King Theoden in The Lord of the Rings movies.

Here is a side by side comparison of Trump and Bannon's ideas for the country just to give this a little perspective.
Yeah, now try to get some sleep tonight.

      I don't think there is any money in the nude photos of Melabnorma now or in the future. The internet is full of them and apparently there is no interest in taking them down.

      Some show her "fondling" her pubic hair, most all show her nipples and there is nothing that resembles a super model modeling clothes, just a thong here and there or a total nude shot with maybe a neck scarf or a bracelet. Slut trash and doubtful there is any money to be had so I did not bother to save a bunch.

      Porn is available for anyone who wants it and there is no doubt better quality shots than Melabnorma.

      Before all the plastic surgery and hair coloring and the boob job there is little resemblance to the squinty eyes and huge boob-a-loobs she now sports.

      After January 20th it won't be safe to say things anywhere because Drumpf wants to monitor all our messages. His staff all have to sign non-disclosure agreements and admit having done so.

      The woman who published this said"A Ape".She wasn't smart enough to know you use an before a vowel. I'm sure she doesn't know what a vowel is.

      I just read 19% of our High school students can't read. That 14% of American people are totally illiterate. That 21% of American people read at 5th grade level or LOWER. That means roughly 1/3 of our country are effectively illiterate. ONE Third.And yes Iam an Educator.

    6. This is just fodder for when the right whines about Melanoma being treated "unfairly" and people are being "mean to her" we can pull out the 8 years of crap directed at the Obama family and say "Sauce for the gander, you fucking hypocrites."

      11:52.

      1/5 of our population read below a 5th grade level. That doesn't make them illiterate, especially if you knew what 5th graders have to read and analyze. Newspapers are written at the 3rd grade level, most novels, even adult ones, are about the 4th-5th grade reading level.

      Those 19% of high school students would be part of the 14% of American people. And I will say they aren't illiterate because of the schools. There are plenty of remedial and resource support for students. They're identified and help is offered. But you can't force children to learn and sometimes you can even force them to go to school. Some of the reading problems might be unidentified learning disabilities at an early age but some of them are truancy, high transiency and disrespect for learning by the parents. You can't teach a child to respect education when the parents disparage it.

      Millions feel a sense of relief "T" SPOKE & understood the pain of this large segment of the population better than any other modern candidate for Pres.
      Forgotten Americans.
      FAs are among the 95M working age people who are not counted in the false unemploy stats because they have given up looking for jobs, are among those who have witnessed their health insurance premiums double & their deductibles triple after their Pres sold a lie to them with
      The ACA.
      FAs live in cities whose manufacturing plants have long since shut down as a result of bad trade deals that have sent jobs overseas at the expense of the middle class.
      FAs believe in the rule of law and that the same law of the land should not apply to some and not others. FAs respect police officers and know that their work is hard and dangerous enough without being labeled racists for doing their work.
      fear the 20 "T$" debt burden that will be inherited by their children and Gchildren because their gov spent and wasted money recklessly for decades. No longer able to afford to be the 47% of our population that actually work for their living, pay taxes, support the other 53% who live with their hands out. Believe in God and hold traditional values who are tired of being told that they are intolerant because of their BELIEFS.
      FAs love their country and believe America is exceptional, not its people are better, but because its system of representative gov defined by the Founders in the Constitution made it SPECIAL. The Constitution is being destroyed by judges who exceed their authority and create rather than interpret laws.
      FAs don’t believe that it is the role of the Fed Gov. to tell them what their kids can eat for lunch, when to choose abortion vs planned parenthood, the PROPER WAY to do a MATH problem or to intrude into their daily lives in a million different ways via regs not even passed by elected Reps.
      ARE the most generous people on earth and believe in taking care of those in need. Do not believe it is the role of gov to redistribute their wealth for them.
      Limited gov for and by the people. They do not believe in a gov of career politicians or spin off lobbyists who make decisions to enhance their wealth and power at the expense of the people.
      FAs came to this country from another country via a legal process that took time and effort, NOW PROUD of their American citizenship and freedom to live the American Dream, but believe a sovereign nation must be able to enforce its borders.
      FAs FEAR terrorism and know that we must be able to name our enemy, if we stand a chance of defeating it.
      FAs never expected to pick "T" Pres. Years of disappointment in those that they sent to Washington, felt a sense of desperation. The America they knew was slipping away and might never recover from another 4-8years of a Clinton admin, on top of a demonstrably failed 8 year Obama admin that has brought a huge nation TO IT'S KNEES. The political experts never expected this election outcome because they didn’t know the FAs. Those of US in this group saw it coming a mile away. We knew the collective power of this group to act when they finally had their champion. "T" was a creation of years of disappointment. lack of political experience, obnoxious personality and flamboyant style would have, at any other point in history, been a political liability. Trump was just the man needed to"Make America Great Again."
      There will be those who label "T" as simply a racist, sexist, or some other form of beast created less from his own behavior and more from a long list of biased detractors in the liberal media, the establishment and the haters, despite your opinion of the man, do not miss the movement. It is as real a revolution as anything we’ve seen in our lifetimes. "T" was elected by half those Americans who chose to vote as the leader of a movement that he did not create. The FAs created this movement. Chances are they are your neighbor, friend or family member.

      Palin would have to go through Congressional Hearings and would never pass them - unless they low-balled the questions and had her memorize answers (like they did w/the McCain run!).

      She is in no way qualified to hold, and assuredly not knowledgeable, as to the subject of 'energy' throughout the world - much less in Alaska!

      Review ALL of her history in Alaska and when she ran w/John McCain! All I can say is thank God they lost!

      She would have to be surrounded w/knowledgeable people as to 'energy' so that they could feed her world points to make her 'appear' as though the answers flowing from her lips were knowledgeable, truthful and correct!

      Which is exactly how they tried to 'show' her during the McCain campaign! It didn't work - especially in the interviews she had to face! Steve Schmit was appalled when he realized how ill informed she was as to world affairs. Plus, Nicole Wallace found her to be an emotional mess and extremely difficult w/which to work!

      It also became apparent she had NOT been properly vetted. The group so eager to put her in the VP slot w/McCain didn't ask enough questions of the qualified folks in Alaska that truly knew her!

      Ask Steve Schmidt and Nicole Wallace about Palin! Today, they are the ones that know the most as to her ineptness and mental abilities and why she is NOT qualified to hold 'any' political office in Alaska or the USA!

      They were the ones that 'tried' to teach her things, in order to make her 'appear' ready for the campaign, interviews and debates! They learned the hard way that their efforts completely failed!

      Read "Game Change" to refresh your memories!

      I just watched "Game Change" the other night on cable TV and noticed they have dropped the ending of the movie as it was originally made. They did not show her temper tantrum where she threw her phone down the steps as well as some other scenes leading up to McCain making his concession speech. Palin wanted so badly to make a final speech too which was stopped by McCain and Schmidt.

      Scenes were changed in that regard too - probably trying to make her look more sane for the national Republican party for the 'future'!

      History does not stay accurate - even when it comes to likes of a Sarah Palin!

    He said he will ban Muslims from this country and heavily vet those that are here, that is one of his stated goals, so who else would he choose but Bannon to help him achieve his goals. I've seen a few news articles highlighting Muslims who voted for Trump saying that "a lot of what he had to say was hyperbole". Wonder how they're feeling now?

    I know a few folks who are "preppers"; they have caches and stashes of goods for when Obama or Hillary brought about the end of America. Bet they never thought they'd be using them because THEY elected Donald Trump President. If it wasn't such a sad situation the irony would be delicious.

      "WASHINGTON ― Donald Trump is reportedly considering appointing Clare Lopez, an anti-Muslim conspiracy theorist, to serve as his deputy national security adviser.

      Lopez is the vice president of the Center for Security Policy, a Washington, D.C.-based think tank that focuses on the threat of Islamic jihad. She was on a short list of names that the Daily Caller reported as coming directly from the Trump transition team.

      According to Lopez’s biography, she spent 20 years working for the Central Intelligence Agency before she became a popular writer for conservative websites like Breitbart News and World Net Daily. She served as an adviser to the presidential campaign of Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), and while she didn’t hold an official post within Trump’s campaign, the president-elect regularly cited her work to support his anti-Muslim positions."

      "Trump has also cited research from the Center for Security Policy dozens of times in press releases and speeches during his presidential campaign. When Trump called for a ban on Muslims entering the United States, he justified it by citing a discredited CSP study that claimed to show that 25 percent of Muslims in the U.S. believe violence against America is justified “as part of the global jihad.”

      Earlier this year, Lopez suggested that the United States must return to the era of communist-hunting Joe McCarthy to prevent an Islamist infiltration. McCarthy was “spot on” about communists infiltrating America in the 1950s, she said, and America should engage in a similar plan to get rid of Muslim extremists in “the top levels of national security in our government.” "

      Great. We've got J. Edgar Hoover FBI, McCarthyism and Ann Coulter suggesting we institute a Mischling Test.

      Bannon is an addicted drinker. The red nose, flushed cheeks, puffy face and pasty complexion scream that this person is dependent on alcohol on a daily basis. Those are just the external signs. His pre-frontal cortex is also severely damaged which explains why his outlook is negative and paranoid.

      Alcohol is the world's most dangerous drug. And Steve Bannon, as an addict of alcohol, will be one of the world's most dangerous people. Until he dies. Which, by the looks of it, may not be too long from now.

People get sicker as they age! It's a given! Is Ryan going to take that insurance coverage away and force them into bankruptcy and poverty? Sure looks like it!

      There is zero thing in place to protect seniors - your parents and grandparents!

      America is in a mess and we are going down. The fact the majority don't see it - that the media is playing into and making all look normal and good - is mindboggling!

      Be ready, America! We are going down just exactly as we did in WWII. Anti Jews, anti minorities, control of the press and on and on. There will riots within our streets and neighborhoods - neighbor against neighbor. Minorities against whites - all brought on by the leadership of Donald Trump and his ilk. They want ALL whites to rule America! They want to 'control' the minorities, poor and middle class Americans.

    http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2016/08/22/steve-bannon-trump-s-top-guy-told-me-he-was-a-leninist.html
    partial excerpt:

    "The same week as the party, Thomas Sowell had a column in the National Review Online, in which the conservative economist opposed the tactics employed by Ted Cruz in shutting down the government. Cruz’s tactics in opposing Obamacare, Sowell wrote, “undermines the election chances of the only political party that has any chance of undoing the disasters that Barack Obama has already inflicted on the nation. Later that week, Sowell wrote that “Jeopardizing the reelection of current Republican senators is an act of utter irresponsibility, a high risk with zero benefits to anyone except Ted Cruz—and the Democrats.”

    During our conversation, I asked Bannon if he had read the pieces, since Sowell was criticizing a tactic which Bannon and the Tea Party had favored.

    “National Review and The Weekly Standard,” he said, “are both left-wing magazines, and I want to destroy them also.” He added that “no one reads them or cares what they say.” His goal was to bring down the entire establishment including the leaders of the Republican Party in Congress. He went on to tell me that he was the East Coast coordinator of all the Tea Party groups. His plan was to get its candidates nominated on the Republican ticket, and then to back campaigns that they could win. Then, Bannon said, when elected they would be held accountable to fight for the agenda he and the Tea Party stood for."

    As Alexander Hamilton writes in “The Federalist Papers,” the Constitution is designed to ensure “that the office of President will never fall to the lot of any man who is not in an eminent degree endowed with the requisite qualifications.” The point of the Electoral College is to preserve “the sense of the people,” while at the same time ensuring that a president is chosen “by men most capable of analyzing the qualities adapted to the station, and acting under circumstances favorable to deliberation, and to a judicious combination of all the reasons and inducements which were proper to govern their choice.”

    6. Would you believe it if ELIZABETH WARREN SAID IT?

      http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/elizabeth-warren-obamacare-trump-democrats_us_582a4402e4b0c4b63b0e3988

      "WASHINGTON ― Elizabeth Warren delivered a blunt message to a large group of wealthy liberal donors Monday, arguing that the Democratic Party’s failure to connect with working and middle-class people had opened the door for Donald Trump to win the presidency.

      Warren, according to sources in the room, ran through a litany of issues on which Democrats had left people behind, either by offering too little or nothing at all. Perhaps her most surprising criticism was directed at the Affordable Care Act, known as Obamacare.

      The Massachusetts senator, who walked in to a standing ovation before she’d even been introduced, told the bereft gathering that she was as capable as any other politician at defending Obamacare and rattled off its benefits ― no more exclusions based on pre-existing conditions, you can stay on your parents’ plan until age 26, 20 million Americans covered. “But let’s be honest: It’s not bold. It’s not transformative,” she added.

      Had the party acknowledged its shortcoming and pledged to fight for more, Warren said, that message may have resonated. “I’m OK taking half a loaf if our message was ‘Here’s half, now let’s go get the rest,’” she said."

      "Speaking at the gathering of the Democracy Alliance, she also highlighted Democrats’ inability to help homeowners during the financial crisis, even though banks were bailed out. She blasted the failure to prosecute the bankers, saying that it suggested to working people just whose side the party was on. She also picked up on corporate-friendly trade policies, arguing Democrats were too eager to push deals that hurt the working class.

      “That’s where we failed, not in our messaging, but in our ideology,” she said, according to people in the room.

      And when it came to the 2009 stimulus, she said, Democrats were too quick to compromise with Republicans, who opposed it nearly unanimously, and then did little to put their stamp on it."

      "Van Jones and Heather McGhee also addressed the donor class and spoke in equally blunt language about the progressive movement’s inability to connect with the black and brown working classes and for “resourcing communities of color too little, too late.”"

    So now we know why what was suppose to be a 15 minute meeting lasted several hours.

    Trump knew absolutely zero about what the president does and how the White House works.

    Nor does he know the most basic concepts of how the American legislative process work. Neither does most of those who voted for him.

      They don't know and they don't care. They will just ignore the rules and do what they want. They believe they have "earned" that right with the vote.

      I just hope they don't get their way, that both Dems and GOP see through their horror-ness and say NO, you have to play by the rules.

    Alan "Greenspan explained during his glory days, his successes in economic management were based substantially on "growing worker insecurity." Intimidated working people would not ask for higher wages, benefits and security, but would be satisfied with the stagnating wages and reduced benefits that signal a healthy economy by neoliberal standards."< Got Played

  25. What's really worrying now is Secretary of State.

    http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/john-bolton-secretary-of-state-donald-trump_us_582a314ee4b02d21bbca46b2

    I don't think he's going to choose John Bolton because Bolton is very anti-Russian and Vlad is Drumpf's new BFF.

    Rudy Giuliani is also being considered. That might be only slightly better than Attorney General since Rudy is already talking about prosecuting Hillary Clinton.

    Bob Corker would have an outside chance if it weren't for the fact that Robert Mercer bankrolled most of Drumpf's campaign and he's pushing Mercer. He paid and now Drumpf has to play.

  26. Anti-Muslim next:

    http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/trump-clare-lopez-adviser_us_582a2bede4b02d21bbca3e80

    " Donald Trump is reportedly considering appointing Clare Lopez, an anti-Muslim conspiracy theorist, to serve as his deputy national security adviser.

    Lopez is the vice president of the Center for Security Policy, a Washington, D.C.-based think tank that focuses on the threat of Islamic jihad. She was on a short list of names that the Daily Caller reported as coming directly from the Trump transition team.

    According to Lopez’s biography, she spent 20 years working for the Central Intelligence Agency before she became a popular writer for conservative websites like Breitbart News and World Net Daily. She served as an adviser to the presidential campaign of Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), and while she didn’t hold an official post within Trump’s campaign, the president-elect regularly cited her work to support his anti-Muslim positions."

    "Trump has also cited research from the Center for Security Policy dozens of times in press releases and speeches during his presidential campaign. When Trump called for a ban on Muslims entering the United States, he justified it by citing a discredited CSP study that claimed to show that 25 percent of Muslims in the U.S. believe violence against America is justified “as part of the global jihad.”

    Earlier this year, Lopez suggested that the United States must return to the era of communist-hunting Joe McCarthy to prevent an Islamist infiltration. McCarthy was “spot on” about communists infiltrating America in the 1950s, she said, and America should engage in a similar plan to get rid of Muslim extremists in “the top levels of national security in our government.” "

    Oh, goody. Nazi Germany and McCarthyism.

    Could Drumpf look for any more shining examples to Make America Great Again?
