So Much for Draining the Swamp: Did Trump Team Consider JP Morgan Chase CEO Jamie Dimon for Treasury Secretary?

| |

trumpeyes

It wasn’t a personal love for Trump that got him elected.

It was white hot anger.

Anger at eight years of middle class murdering policies and regulations under Obama’s pile of “hope and change” lies.

And anger at the potential of the elite actually attempting to force a person as corrupt as Hillary Clinton in there for possibly four or eight more of the same abuse.

No one can deny Trump is a steam valve for the anger of the people that’s been building up under decades of government tyranny.

But already the cracks in the facade of “Making America Great Again” are starting to show.

People weren’t listening during the debates and during Trump’s speeches — he was never actually about smaller government.

People are calling for him to “drain the swamp,” but the first thing he did in his victory speech was talk about Hillary in the nicest way possible, leaving some to speculate if Trump’s promise to appoint a special prosecutor to her case and “lock her up” was just a dramatic but hollow campaign promise and nothing more. Others claims he’s just being diplomatic and graceful (all of a sudden).

The day after he was elected, Trump visited the White House and talked about what a “good guy” Obama is… he said it multiple times… a far cry from calling Obama “the worst president in the history of the United States” just a few weeks ago on the campaign trail.

In fact, Trump has now said he will seek Obama’s counsel while in office.

“As far as I’m concerned it could have gone on for a lot longer,” said Mr. Trump, who was seated next to Mr. Obama in the Oval Office. He called Mr. Obama “a very good man.”

“I very much look forward to dealing with the president in the future, including counsel,” Mr. Trump said.

Why would any prospective president want to repeatedly meet and take counsel from the worst president in the history of the country?

And we all know Mr. noun-verb-9/11 Rudy Giuliani and Newt Gingrich are already waiting in the wings on standby for whatever their new positions under President Trump will be.

As reports continue to come out, it looks less and less like Trump is draining any swamps and more and more like he’s already playing ball. (And really, does anyone in America really become a billionaire these days any other way?)

Now Reuters and others are reporting that one of the advisors on Trump’s transition team has reached out to Jamie Dimon — CEO of JPMorgan Chase Bank and former member of the Board of Directors of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York — to be Trump’s Secretary of Treasury.

Dimon, if you aren’t familiar, is the guy who oversaw $25 billion in TARP funds transferred from the U.S. Treasury Department to JPMorgan Chase bank during the 2008 bailout. It has been pointed out many times over JPMorgan Chase didn’t even remotely need a bailout, as it was the healthiest of the big nine banks after the collapse.

Dimon was also on the list of potentials for Obama’s treasury secretary, but Obama named president of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York Timothy Geithner to the position instead. Still, AP reported that Dimon had “liberal access” to Geithner and Obama went on “The View” to stick up for Dimon, calling Dimon one of the smartest bankers America has, just after JPMorgan suffered a whopping $2 billion in trading losses under his leadership…

Jamie Dimon. It just doesn’t get more swampy than that. He’s the Creature from the Black Lagoon. If they could have asked a worse person at this point, who would it even be?

According to Reuters, Dimon did not support Trump’s election and has said he would not be interested in the position,

JPMorgan Chase & Co Chief Executive Officer Jamie Dimon did not support Republican Donald Trump’s presidential campaign, yet some Trump advisers want America’s most famous banker to become Treasury Secretary to calm nerves on Wall Street.

A member of Trump’s transition team contacted Dimon recently to see if he would be interested in the role, two people familiar with the matter told Reuters on Thursday…

…but that is so not even the point.

The point is that Donald “Make America Great Again” Trump would even have an advisor who would go there in the first place.

Trump’s other choices, by the way?

Door number two, current campaign finance manager Steven Mnuchin — a Jewish, 17-year Goldman Sachs banker who briefly worked for George Soros and who also donated to both Obama and Hillary’s campaigns in the past. Mnuchin is already walking back on Trump’s campaign promise to dismantle Dodd-Frank by saying it merely “needs to be looked at”.

And door number three, Republican Chairman of the House Financial Services Committee Jeb Hensarling who is a staunch supporter of free trade policies (TPP anyone?) and the PATRIOT Act.

Other potential choices for Trump’s team?

According to Fox News, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie is being considered for Attorney General, former Ambassador to the UN under George W. Bush John Bolton is being considered for Secretary of State, and long-time Council on Foreign Relations president and Bilderberg attendee Richard Haass is up for lead diplomat.

While no one can deny that Trump’s victory was a boon for everyone who was sick and tired of watching the Establishment walk all over us, as Paul Craig Roberts has pointed out, it’s the advisors and people Trump appoints and takes advice from that we really have to look out for:

We do not know who Trump will select to serve in his government.  It is likely that Trump is unfamiliar with the various possibilities and their positions on issues.  It really depends on who is advising Trump and what advice they give him.  Once we see his government, we will know whether we can be hopeful for the changes that now have a chance…

We won’t know what to expect until we see who are the Secretaries and Assistant Secretaries. If it is the usual crowd, we will know Trump has been captured.

Roberts finished with, “If Trump is advised to be conciliatory, to hold out his hand, and to take the establishment into his government, the American people will again be disappointed.”

So far, Trump is being awfully conciliatory to Hillary and Obama… even as his supporters continue to chant “lock her up”.

And, even though it is CNN, it’d be kind of hard for them to just blatantly openly lie about this list of people on Trump’s “transition team”:

Leaders in his transition include former Rep. Mike Rogers, former Reagan Attorney General and Heritage Foundation fellow Edwin Meese, former President of Heritage Edwin Feulner, former Bush administration official and lobbyist Christine Ciccone, former Dick Cheney adviser Ado Machida, former Senate Budget Committee staffer Eric Ueland and former Sen. Jeff Sessions’ chief of staff Rick Dearborn. The effort is chaired by New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and Trump counts former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich and Sessions as close advisers.

It’s all quite troubling if people would take off their rose-colored glasses and come down off of the “I voted” -flavored crack rocks and really look at what’s going on here.

Either way, whether Trump is truly a legit anti-establishment candidate of the people as some want so desperately to believe, or really just a new establishment tool to put people back to sleep like Obama was after Bush Jr., Brandon Smith of Alt Market has it right when he says Trump wouldn’t be there unless the elite wanted him there.

    I understand the trepidation of folks who voted for Trump on his platform of “drain the swamp”. However it is very important to have folks with a working knowledge of the government, treasury, and defense. Remember there have been several articles on how the global elites will try to trash the debt and economy. The Trump administration needs to know the fulcrum points and being a CEO of a real estate company does not prepare you for that. It will be incumbent on voters to remind Trump of his campaign rhetoric and for him to be diligent in regards to his agenda. They all work at the pleasure of the president. His actual actions on policy will be more important that who is carrying it out.

    • Mike

      True, but if he appoints any of those leftist scum, he needs to appoint a watcher so to speak to keep them in line.

      • freeinpa

        Correct right now it is more important to have the correct result than to his words and appointments

    • Razedbywolvs

      The Federal Reserve is how the elites trash the economy you idiot. He is putting the fox in charge of guarding the hen house.

      • freeinpa

        To your thinking (a generous term) how will they implement that?

        • Razedbywolvs

          It’s all ready implemented “we” are 200 trillion in debt.

          • freeinpa

            You have to do better than that Sparky we have had high debt levels for years and we are still moving on. Exactly how will they “implement” that 200 trillion into trash the economy?

          • Razedbywolvs

            lol. Were not moving on, we are moving into more debt. You and your assets are the collateral.
            Effectively you have given your credit card to a prostitute and expert that the prostitute will magically be able to spend her way out of debt.

          • freeinpa

            And we have been moving into more debt for decades what and when is the trigger??? Stop talking in bumper stickers and answer the question.

          • Razedbywolvs

            Bumper Sticker works really well, and your not writing essays here ether.
            Who knows. One day your doing fine and then the next day your Venezuela or Uganda. Thats a good bumper sticker. “Pay off the debt with a two Ugandan bank notes.”

          • freeinpa

            You know ostriches eyes are bigger than their brains and I think we can say the same about you

          • Razedbywolvs

            That bumper sticker would only sell in Australia.

          • Oboehner

            You’re shooting a chipmunk with a RPG, this one is clueless.

          • freeinpa

            You like your squirrelly pal are great with denigration but suck at reality and facts. Tighten that tin foil hat

          • g.johnon

            i think he was on your side for a minute free. way to deflect a compliment and make yourself look like an asshole.

          • freeinpa

            If it was I apologize but he needs to work on his communication skills

          • g.johnon

            don’t we all

          • freeinpa

            Fair enough

          • Oboehner

            The old “tin foil hat” montra, ranks right up there with “I know you are, but what am I”

          • freeinpa

            It’s “MANTRA” moron!

          • Oboehner

            Montra is the short version of the Pahli word “Mahantra” meaning protection, its origin from the Kurdish word “Pala” meaning to take refuge under.

            A “Mantra” is a sacred utterance, a numinous sound, a syllable, word or phonemes, or group of words in Sanskrit believed by practitioners to have psychological and spiritual powers.

          • freeinpa

            Great you are stupid in many languages

          • Oboehner

            Well thought out response, your kindergarten teacher would be proud.

          • freeinpa

            It’s the same one you have had for the past 5 years

          • robert

            Trump crew turn it around

          • Razedbywolvs

            But not to our favor. Trumps campaign promise to ban Muslims disappeared of his web sight the night he got elected. Trump crew getting played.

          • robert

            Two months before Trump crew take over. They be lots riots as libs are freaking out. Trump takes power then declare martial law so they clean this mess up

        • g.johnon

          the same way they have been “implementing” it for over 100 years mr. free. money created from debt born with interest attached and no money ever created to pay the interest. where the hell did you think inflation came from?

          • freeinpa

            Sorry it was the abandonment of the gold standard that led to mismangement of fiscal policy

          • g.johnon

            what a heaping pile of happy horseshit that is. the gold standard was abandoned because it was untenable. just simple cannot back a public economy with a commodity that there simply is not enough of to go around without being mindbogglingly fractional. but then, here we are anyway as a result of being mindbogglingly fractional anyway….so.
            but no, the gold standard has always been mythical koolaid. roughly speaking, there is approximately about a thousand dollars worth of gold above ground for each and every one of us. and that is at today’s gold valuation.

          • freeinpa

            You may find out shortly how wrong you are

          • g.johnon

            free, i have no doubt that the economy is about to tank. but not because of anything to do with a mythical gold standard. fort knox has been empty for decades now. we didn’t abandon any backing standard for the dollar, the cap on the price of gold ($35 oz.) was lifted, which did begin to “devalue” the dollar as the price of gold went up. we do use the spot price of gold and silver as a measurement to determine current dollar value. but our dollars are not backed by precious metal. they are not backed by anything but a bad paper economy. bad behavior on behalf of elitist banksters, corpos and arms dealers is what has us in this mess now. and, truth be told, this mess is nothing but an illusion. a potentially deadly illusion for sure, but an illusion just the same.

          • freeinpa

            What is an illusion is the list if “bad actors” when you leave out any responsibility of every American citizen. They have sat idly by for decades and now want a magic fix with no pain

            China and Russia are building a gold based petro dollar to replace the US$ which will subject the US$ to more manipulation

          • g.johnon

            i have no argument with your first paragraph.
            as for your take on china and russia developing competitive petro currency. so what? the petro dollar, or as you call it, teh US$ is not the american dollar but the federal reserve note “dollar”. the federal reserve is affiliated with a megolithic multinational banking cartel much more so that with the government of the united states of america which was overthrown completely in 1931 and is now US GOV, INC.
            this us$ has been used to manipulate the world ever since. not by the america of WE THE PEOPLE, but by the agencies of this banking cartel. agencies such as the united nations and nato. they have commandeered the armed forces of the united states of america and send our children to foreign nations to kill and be killed for reason having nothing to do with defending the people and the constitution of the united states of america.,
            so let russia and china fuck with the fed. we really should be jumping in to help them.

          • freeinpa

            The new petro dollar will put further pressure on the US$ (like it or not its your currency too) which will lower our standard of living further and decrease the tools the US has to force these countries to reduce the manipulation of their currencies

          • g.johnon

            ok i get it now. you’re just one of those kool-aid drinking hard ass righties who have been conned into believing that crony corporate capitalism is the same thing as free market enterprise.
            you need to fix that or we cant have a conversation.

          • freeinpa

            What you get would fit on one half of one side of a 3×5 index card with roof for the Gettysburg address.

            As most nut jobs you don’t want a discussion you want you opinion taken as fact.

            Sorry your mom lied t you telling you that

    • Gkiter

      Come on. A move like that would be like putting the former CEO of Merks as the head of the CDC, or the former CEO of Monsanto at the head of USDA. If this is not conflict of interest I don’t know what is but that is clearly the Trump middle finger to people who voted for him and the millions who lost everything because banks like Chase played with toxic assets and created the greatest depression since 1929 with world wide ripple effects. There are other qualified finance specialists he could find that would be more reputable, like Elisabeth Warren… just kidding, but not really.

      • Razedbywolvs

        Former cable lobbyist in charge of the FCC

      • freeinpa

        the toxic assets were the result of a HUD and Bill Clinton policy to increase home ownership among those who could not afford to pay back a loan under the threat of fines by the AG Janet Reno. The bankers said fine we will make the loans and sell them. And yes many people were harmed but some need to take responsibility for getting in over their head financially.

        Who would you suggest to be Secretary of Treasury the guy who runs your neighborhood dry cleaner?

        • g.johnon

          dry cleaner sounds fine to me.

          • freeinpa

            Now you may call me names again but you are dumpster sized stupid then

          • g.johnon

            why exactly? because i actually dont believe that hiring those same folks who have been gaming the system for decades is a real good idea and that my dry cleaner may not have all that much experience but could not do a worse job than has already been done if he put all his effort into it? that makes me stupid?
            because running an honest government is a whole lot simpler than running a dishonest one, so much so that even a dry cleaner can get the job done?
            all this babbling about experience. why don’t you, at least, try to take a long look at where all that experience has gotten us so far.

          • freeinpa

            “but could not do a worse job than has already been done if he put all his effort into it? that makes me stupid?”

            Yeah it kinda of does and raises the question whether their is a village in search of its idiot tonight

          • g.johnon

            did you just pull that out of context on purpose? or is that where you stopped reading?

          • hoyeru

            dont argue with these fool man, just sit back and relax, just watch, they will learn within 6 months what a total windbag and bullshit artist Trump is when he is unable to deliver on any of his promises. The best part is who will they be blamign then, Obama? I an’t wait, I wish I can just zip 1 year into the future and watch their stupid heads explode

          • g.johnon

            ah hoyer, bitch slapping these koolaiders around the room is just a cathartic exercise for an old duffer like me. i know i wont change them, but you got have your fun where you can 😉

        • Gkiter

          It does not matter who was responsible for the policy, they still did it, they played with peoples livelihood. Watch the Big Short, it might be a movie but it’s not far from the reality.
          Besides Elisabeth Warren I don’t know who could do it.

          • freeinpa

            The Big Short is a lot further from realty than you think. The “don’t bail them out” actually caused more damage when Lehman went under. There was a photo on the front page of the Financial Times the day after they came up with the TARP program. Pelosi, Reid, et al had $hit eating grins on their face; all except Paulson who looked like he could throw up. He was th eon;y one who understood wht might happen. Everyone wants to string up Wall Street but the Auto companies received the same treatment. The banks have re-paid everything including interest back. GM still owes taxpayer over $20 billion. I don’t hear Warren wanting heads off in GM do you?

    • OldeSoul

      Wrong. All wrong… but this is the thinking most people have, which is why our government is a corrupt pile of stinking rich thieves. Keep saying it though, maybe a fairy will come by and throw some dust on it.

      • freeinpa

        You didn’t answer the question. Who should he hire?? It is great to piss and moan but he still needs to govern a $3 trillion economy

        • OldeSoul

          There are massively intelligent people all over this country who are not part of the swamp, aren’t there? They are running businesses, teaching, building… Do you know any? I do. But the point is Trump never intended to drain the swamp, it was the usual lie they all tell and then immediately return to their true nature afterward. Putting people “who know how things work in DC” means the opposite of draining the swamp. Fairy dust.

          • freeinpa

            So which lie did you fall for: Trumps “drain the swamp” or Clinton’s “I am not a crook”?

          • OldeSoul

            I’m not that stupid. I didn’t vote for either of them because I don’t consent to be ruled.

            No I was referring to facts not in evidence of your statement “I’m not that stupid”

          • OldeSoul

            Since you are so brilliant, which psychopath did you vote for?

          • freeinpa

            Held my nose and voted for Trump. If you voted for anyone but the top 2 candidates you might as well for Yogi Bear. You wasted a vote

          • OldeSoul

            Well that’s just freaking brilliant. You held your nose and voted, thereby giving your consent to be ruled by a psychopathic, narcissistic globalist-in-disguise. And you think I’M STUPID? Go jump off a pier or something.

          • freeinpa

            Who’s talking about “running” anything. It’s about ending it.

            I am sure your post made sense in your head which is where it should have stayed.

            We’re talking about ENDing the Fed. 10 guys from the local bar sounds just fine. We neither expect nor desire for it to run successfully.

          • freeinpa

            So ending it will make all the debt go away?? You have no idea of what might happen. They same poor suckers you think you are saving will suffer the most.

          • Jon Cathcart

            Yeah, in downtown Reykjavik.

          • freeinpa

            A supremely naive atitude

          • g.johnon

            that’s what its going to take ,mr. calls himself free and continues to demonstrate no understanding for the term.
            this debt is never going to be paid back. this is not my debt nor yours. this is a debt of slavery foisted onto the public to bring we the people to financial submission. it cannot be fixed in any other way but to first destroy it. and yes, people are going to get hurt. hopefully it will hurt the speculators more than the innocent. but what needs to be done needs to be done.
            and yes, the first step to make this fabricated debt go away is to shut down the fed and the irs. nobody said is was going to be a cakewalk.

          • freeinpa

            Step away fro the crack pipe. No one with an IQ above room temperature will take you or your plan seriously

          • g.johnon

            you are probably right, unfortunately there is no other plan.
            oh wait! unless you have one.

          • freeinpa

            Baby steps. Elect people who will shrink government. Limit budget to operate government agencies. No such thing as Baseline budgeting- every year each agency has to prove its worth. Fire 10% of all government agency employees as a start. Press the rule of law for everyone whether ceos or senators or cabinet members. Reduce taxes drastically. Move the UN from NYC to Somalia. Term limits. Peel back regulations.

            Just a start

          • g.johnon

            yeah, those would be some of the obvious goals for sure.
            now, how you gonna do that? put republican party bots back into the system? been there, done it, didnt work.

          • g.johnon

            actually “i am not a crook” was nixon.

          • freeinpa

            I know that. Nixon had 18 minutes of missing tape and Clinton had 33,000 missing emails

    • Jon Cathcart

      That’s the same script Obama read from. “…for their vast experience as we chart a course through bla bla bla”. And then, because he was their guy, the left went all “see, hear, and speak no evil”, even as he out Bushed Bush in every category. It’ll be interesting to see how we conduct ourselves if Trump does the same.

      • freeinpa

        There are a boat load of you all complaining about people he is considering (not yet named) but you offer NOTHING as to who he might and why they would be any better

        • Jon Cathcart

          Paul Craig Roberts, Peter Schiff. Happy now? Don’t try to sell anybody on the legitimacy of the Fed. It’s gone way past your sophomoric level of bullshit.

            You pick him because he did such a great job last time????

            You would be taking a step up to reach sophomoric level.

          • g.johnon

            actually dr. roberts was one of the rare good ones. he is still out there blowing whistles and telling the truth of his experience.
            but here are a few off my list: bill still, devvy kidd, naomi wolf, my local korean-american dry cleaner, jesse ventura, paul allen, craig hulet and greg hunter.
            you are aware that the usa was founded, among others, by a hemp farmer, a cotton farmer, a printer, a silversmith, a barkeeper and in import merchant; right?

          • freeinpa

            Funny he didn’t blow any whistles while he was there. Easier job to throw hand grenades from afar with no consequences.

            Namoi Wolf?? Algores fashion consultant?? Jesse Ventura?? Now I know you are being sarcastic or just plain bat crap crazy.

            Yes we all long for the days of citizen legislators and not professional politicians but thinking you can wave a wand is simply childish

          • g.johnon

            oh, i see you googled naomi wolf and did no reading on her whatsoever (algore’s fashion consultant my ass).
            and yes jesse ventura a man three times smarter with a hundred times more courage than yourself, you smug little bitch.

          • freeinpa

            Did not have to google anything on Naomi, she is a proven leftist crazy beyond putting Algore in brown suits. Read some of her books.

            And by your response in general you seem to have earned a fulltime membership in the Crazy Hall of Fame

    “Others claims he’s just being diplomatic and graceful (all of a sudden)”
    As the old saying goes `keep your friends close and your enemies closer`

    • Razedbywolvs

      Give your enemies your credit cards..

      • TrevorD

        Haaa?
        Means…. You ought to watch your adversaries much closer than your companions so you can then comprehend what they are doing.

        • Razedbywolvs

          So you want to watch your enemies drain your bank account so you can comprehend what they are doing.

          • TrevorD

            Your enemies in life can teach you a lot about yourself without you even realizing it. Your enemies aren’t afraid to tell you things that a friend might avoid. Your enemies may hold important information and have talents you may not have yet. Enemies may be people you dislike but that doesn’t mean you should keep your distance from them or not use them for your advantage. It’s good to keep your enemies close enough to keep a watchful eye on them especially when YOU ARE THEIR VERY SMART BOSS.

          • Razedbywolvs

            True, right up to the point were you hire them to manage your finances.
            You don’t hire your enemies because they don’t think of you as their very smart boss. They think of you as some one to destroy.
            If you don’t believe me I’ll come work for you.

          • TrevorD

            Depends on how strong the boss is really.
            Send me your CV. Will consider it on what I can gain from you to further my goals. If I take you as my `enemy` in the interim but I learn a great deal from you then, yes you guessed it…..YOU’RE FIRED?
            Sadly it`s the way of the present business and political world and Trump gets it.

          • Razedbywolvs

            Trump gets it all right.
            I work for a successful money printing business that passes it debt onto the everyone but tax except organizations and individuals. If you don’t hire me I will have my friends remove your tax exception and audit your business into oblivion and you will never be able to get a loan.
            Who’s the really strong boss now?

          • TrevorD

            I understand what you are saying. However I don`t think you are understanding what I am trying to say about hiring people for now that are `in the know`
            It is not true that someone new to running a `business` comes in under the saying that `A new broom sweeps clean`always
            You look at what you have. Take on or keep people for now that know more than you do in some areas, but watch them like a hawk and be rid of them when they either stab you in the back or they are no longer useful to the higher cause. Ruthless but effective whether I agree with it or not.

          • Razedbywolvs

            You have now gone from calling some one a enemy to `in the know`. Thats not remotely the same thing and the he’s not keeping `in the know` Jacob Joseph. The enemy is who he is sweeping house for.

          • g.johnon

            so why are you suddenly quoting obama?

          • Razedbywolvs

            If you think quoting him is bad, you should be mad as hell Trump is keeping Obamacare.

          • g.johnon

            he actually said he was going to fix it. i think I’ll wait to find out what he means by that before i go all mad as hell.

          • Razedbywolvs

            Now Obama’s words are coming out of your mouth. You really think you it’s possible to fix..
            Thats why you will always lose. You would rather wait for a symbolic victory than earn a real one.

          • g.johnon

            which words of obama’s came out of my mouth really?
            i said all during the campaign that neither hillary nor trump were right for this country. right now i am tickled to death that hillary is not going to be in the big chair building a treasonous supreme court for the purpose of trashing our constitution once and for all.
            as for your question of “can obama care be fixed?” yes, anything can be fixed. what i did not say was that i believe that trump will fix it. what is said was, lets give him a chance and see what he does.
            he gave us a 100 day plan. lets see if he sticks to it instead of attacking his abilities to do the job before he is even sworn in.

          • Razedbywolvs

            You said during the campaign that you didn’t Hillary or Trump. But now you want to give Trump a chance. Why bother, would you also give Hillary a chance?
            You 100% know that health care system can not be fixed. Your not really lying to me, you are lying to yourself if you think you can fix socialism thats been ruled by by the supreme court.
            Ya I am attacking him because he cant do the job. I don’t want this health care plan regardless of who you name it. Obama, Trump, Clinton I want it gone not “fixed”.

          • g.johnon

            so, you want to go back to the good old crony capitalist highway robbery ama/bigpharma heath care system we had before obama care?
            a little “socialism”, properly applied can be a good thing. i would actually prefer going all the way to a single payer system like canada, france and sweden to going back to the previous corporate ruled crime infested system that was in place before and that obama care did nothing to change for the good. but yes, it can be fixed. people may need to go to jail, but it can be fixed.

          • Razedbywolvs

            lol we never left the old crony capitalist highway.
            Crony capitalism is a term describing an economy in which success in business depends on close relationships between business people and government.
            Socialism is a range of economic and social systems characterised by social ownership and democratic control of the means of production.
            Their is no closer relationship between government and business than socialism. That helps big pharma because they get monopoly on the market and protection via a court system (Vaccination court for example).

            Your getting what you want, there’s nothing broken to fix.
            .

          • g.johnon

            well you just described fascism, but at least, unlike a lot who come in here, you are trying to pay attention.

          • Razedbywolvs

            Yet you still don’t have a problem with it.

          • g.johnon

            isn’t that what the whole country has been doing for decades razed? well, ok, not the whole country, just the relatively few who are paying attention.

          • Razedbywolvs

            Yes it is. The definition of insanity has been the same for decades.
            Are you happy with the outcome has been? I’m pissed.

          • g.johnon

            of course i am most unhappy with the “outcome” and the process. i think we agree on that. but the only choices we the people have right now are to wait and see what the donald is actually up to, or to join the snowflakes on the streets in protest. personally, the second choice is a non-starter.

          • Razedbywolvs

            Ok protesting is a non-starter and you are unhappy with the “outcome” and the process of the current system. You know what I would do in that situation.. start working on building a new system.

          • g.johnon

            oh would you now? damn good news, be nice to finally get you on board.
            but, unless you have an actual workable idea on how to do that without tearing out the rot first, you are gonna hafta understand that there is long work to be done.

          • Razedbywolvs

            Maybe Muslims weren’t as stupid as everyone thought because they have managed to do just that.

  • Ratcraft

    We kept the Nazi around in Germany after the war you know. You can’t just blow it up and rebuild with no bricks…… I pass judgement in a year.

    • OldeSoul

      All the Nazis with any brains were brought to America to head up our science and technology corporations. And your second statement about blowing things up and rebuild with no bricks is also wrong… that’s what the disaster capitalists do in places like Iraq. The military blows things up, the construction people come in and rebuild it. Geesh I wish people would read some freaking history.

      • g.johnon

        or just pay some objective attention to current events.

      • Ratcraft

        I’m talking about a political system not military blowing up buildings. Geesh I with you understood metaphors.

        • OldeSoul

          I do understand metaphors, better than you do apparently. Our entire political system is based on blowing things up.

          Right now Mr. Trump is in the process of collecting up all the old bricks of the failed system (Rodriguez the Torturer, Newt Gingrich the Liar, Jamie Dimon the Thief) in what he jokingly called (but nobody understood) Draining the Swamp. You won’t need to wait a year to pass judgment. It’s already happened.

          • Ratcraft

            Preibus and Bannon. That is all i’ve seen so far. But we can all dig holes and hide i guess.

  • Jon Cathcart

    Guliani for AG? Or even dog catcher?…WTF?! Jamie frickin’ Diamond for Treasury?! Yeah, we’re off to a great start.

    • g.johnon

      dont forget huckaby, newt and christie who were all on stage with trump for his victory speech.

  • cmb

    Every idiot Trump supporter saw the writing on the wall but chose to believe in unicorns. You and Killary supporters are traitors and should be shot along with swamp creatures – Operation DUMP and KILL

    • g.johnon

      “trump supporters” did not get the donald elected; anti-hillary folks did.

  • red letter

    Here comes the naysayers with unfounded speculation. Why is this quality site turning negative after the election? Dimon was never being considered and this writer knows that. More importantly why is it posted on here? Warning ! If you go negative you will lose most of your loyal readers.

  • Heather Mcdougall

    Trey Gowdy for AG 2016. Trey Gowdy for President 2020. Jason Chafftetz or Jim Jordan for VP, 2020. Trey really can unite a nation.

  • rubykatherine

    Roger Stone says not to believe these names being floated. People are leaking their own names for self promotion, or someone else is leaking them to make people upset.

  • g.johnon

    pharmer, you may be right, but at this point, everything you say is just speculation. if trumpo is going to fix the economy he will have to go after the fed reserve act, the bank act, the tax, wall street, the beltway and even the city in london.
    just on the off chance that he is serious, lets give him his first hundred days to convince us. only fair.
    dont blame you for not voting. i felt dirty afterwards even though all i did was write in “NONE OF THE ABOVE”.
    that being said; i fail to see how following someone to our total destruction could be thought of as a “need”.
