    Early optimism among business lobbyists and executives that Donald Trump’s election heralded better days has slowly given way to uncertainty as the president-elect fires off mixed and sometimes confusing messages on healthcare, taxes and trade.

    An initial euphoria in the business world fueled a powerful post-election stock rally. Some of that has frayed as questions arise over the nuts and bolts of Trump’s campaign promises, although many in the business community said they remain optimistic.

    Doubts deepened over the weekend as Trump declared he would replace President Barack Obama’s signature healthcare plan known as Obamacare with “insurance for everybody” – a goal far beyond Republican designs – and criticized a key component of a plan in Congress to overhaul corporate taxes.

    “It is fair to say that since the election, there has been mounting uncertainty about exactly what the specific policies are likely to be with regard to tax reform and replacing Obamacare,” a financial industry official said.

    Expectations for faster growth, tax reform and a quick repeal of Obamacare, officially known as the Affordable Care Act, have “given way to ‘We are not really sure what he means by that’,” the official said.

    A veteran Republican financial lobbyist said she is under constant pressure from clients to predict what the new administration is planning, but she has no reliable answers for them.

    PBO still cleaning up the mess of previous administrations on his way out of the door. The 1995 case that A-A Secret Service agents brought against the organization for prejudice regarding promotions (the main plaintiff was on Bill’s detail, had been denied promotion 200 times, and had trained the white agents who were promoted over him) is finally being settled, according to the msn newsfeed this morning.
    Like Trevor Noah said in one of his skits, “President Obama is baby-proofing America.” It will not be so easy for the would-be gangsters coming in to dismantle everything because the president is neither careless nor sloppy. He knows better than any the various dodges his enemies (let’s call them what they are) will use to try to wreck havoc. Another thing that should bring comfort is that there has been great systemic change and innovation in the various governmental departments that deal with the meat and potatoes of American life. While the rethugs were pouncing on the shiny objects, PBO’s smart and discreet staffs were getting a lot of shit done that will benefit us for decades to come. e know that they do not read the various briefs, reports, and memos that are produced and the idiots coming in certainly have neither the mental capacity nor the desire to do so. While it is more than likely that we will take some hits, I believe that they will be things that can be righted or their effects lessened. PBO and his administration have done more to protect us and to make our lives better than any other president; it is now on us to fight for ourselves and others.

    Erik Prince, America’s most notorious mercenary, is lurking in the shadows of the incoming Trump administration. A former senior U.S. official who has advised the Trump transition told The Intercept that Prince has been advising the team on matters related to intelligence and defense, including weighing in on candidates for the defense and state departments. The official asked not to be identified because of a transition policy prohibiting discussion of confidential deliberations.

    On election night, Prince’s latest wife, Stacy DeLuke, posted pictures from inside Trump’s campaign headquarters as Donald Trump and Mike Pence watched the returns come in, including a close shot of Pence and Trump with their families. “We know some people who worked closely with [Trump] on his campaign,” DeLuke wrote. “Waiting for the numbers to come in last night. It was well worth the wait!!!! #PresidentTrump2016.” Prince’s sister, billionaire Betsy DeVos, is Trump’s nominee for education secretary and Prince (and his mother) gave large sums of money to a Trump Super PAC.

    In July, Prince told Trump’s senior advisor and white supremacist Steve Bannon, at the time head of Breitbart News, that the Trump administration should recreate a version of the Phoenix Program, the CIA assassination ring that operated during the Vietnam War, to fight ISIS. Such a program, Prince said, could kill or capture “the funders of Islamic terror and that would even be the wealthy radical Islamist billionaires funding it from the Middle East, and any of the other illicit activities they’re in.”

    Prince also said that Trump would be the best force to confront “Islamic fascism.” “As for the world looking to the United States for leadership, unfortunately, I think they’re going to have to wait till January and hope Mr. Trump is elected because, clearly, our generals don’t have a stomach for a fight,” Prince said. “Our President doesn’t have a stomach for a fight and the terrorists, the fascists, are winning.”

    Trump Off to Historically Bad Start
    by Martin Longman
    January 17, 2017 1:46 PM

    Dana Milbank collected a (still incomplete) list of all the people Trump has insulted and gloated over since we won his surprising election in early November. As I read it, I kept having the same experience: “Oh yeah, I forgot about that one.” It’s more evidence that the specifics of the insults don’t matter. What’s important is that he’s always on offense. He’s always giving his audience more.

    It’s true that this demonstrates continuity with this approach to the campaign, but it also makes him a sore winner. And very few people like sore winners. Milbank probably puts too much emphasis on this one point as he uses it to explain Trump’s astonishingly bad poll numbers, but it’s a factor.

    Looking back, it will also be hard to judge the way the Bush presidency handled winning the presidency despite losing the popular vote because the 9/11 attacks reshaped everything. But he was struggling by Labor Day of 2001. In late may, Senator Jim Jeffords of Vermont was already so incensed by the way Bush was handling the presidency that he defected from the Republican Party and handed control of the Senate over to the Democrats. By late-August, a rift had opened up between Colin Powell at the State Department and the Cheney/Rumsfeld axis. The overall perception was that Bush was acting as if he’d won some giant mandate that simply didn’t exist, and that he wasn’t doing enough to reach out to those who had opposed his presidency. It was beginning to cost him.


    From WaPo:

    Compared with other presidents, Trump’s handling of the transition has been judged harshly by respondents. As with his favorable rating, 40 percent say they approve and 54 percent disapprove. In comparison, roughly 8 in 10 approved of the way Obama and former presidents Bill Clinton and George H.W. Bush handled their transitions. And about 7 in 10 approved of the way former president George W. Bush handled his, even though it came amid the rancorous 37-day recount of ballots in Florida and a controversial Supreme Court decision that helped put him in the Oval Office…

    …So far, Trump has generated little confidence about his ability to make sound decisions as president. When asked generally about their faith in his decision-making, just under 4 in 10 say they have either a “great deal” or a “good amount” of confidence in him, and about 6 in 10 say they have “just some” or “none at all.” That is the mirror opposite of attitudes eight years ago on the eve of Obama’s first inauguration.

    Trump gets no respect. That’s because he hasn’t earned it.
    By Dana Milbank
    Opinion writer January 16

    Kellyanne Conway is walking a Dangerfield line.

    “We got no forbearance. We got nothing. We got no respect,” the Trump strategist told CNN’s Anderson Cooper last week, complaining about media coverage of her boss. “This man is president of the United States!”

    Conway raises a fair question: Why hasn’t the president-elect been given more respect?

    Here’s a fair answer: He hasn’t earned any.

    To Trump’s many self-assigned superlatives, he can now add another: the sorest winner. With charity for none and with malice toward all but his supporters, he has in the past two months set a new standard for gracelessness in victory.

    Instead of brushing off criticism, as a president-elect can afford to do, Trump in recent days marked Martin Luther King weekend by telling off civil rights icon John Lewis (a King acolyte) and his “falling apart” and “crime infested” congressional district. He bemoaned “Saturday Night Live” spoofs as a “hit job” and used the words “crap” and “sleazebag” in his public statements. He called the top Democrat in the land the “head clown” and accused the American intelligence community of acting like Nazis.

    Archie Bunker has gotten a bad rep this election.

    Archie Bunker actually voted for HILLARY.

    it was Archie’s boss and his White wife that voted for Cheeto Benito.

    But, that boss is more than willing to push Archie out in front as the face of this election, making him the scapegoat.


    Trump and the Revolt of the White Middle Class
    No, the white working class didn’t propel Trump to the presidency.

    by Stephen Rose January 18, 2017


    Exit poll data bears out the thesis that Trump’s “base” is the white middle class:

    Trump voters are better off than Clinton voters.

    First, note that voters as a group are better off than the entire adult population. While only 33 percent of adults had a four-year college degree, fully 50 percent of the electorate was college-educated. The median income for all voters was $66,000 (my calculation from CNN exit poll numbers), while Trump voters were slightly wealthier than Clinton voters (the median income of Trump voters was $69,000 versus $63,000 for Clinton supporters).

    Just 1 in 6 Trump voters was a non-college-educated white earning less than $50,000.

    Breaking down the Trump vote by income reveals that Trump got 31 percent of his votes from people in households with incomes under $50,000 (which I have called elsewhere the “poor,” “near poor,” and “lower middle class”), 34 percent from those with incomes between $50,000 to 100,000 (my definition of “middle class”), and 35 percent from those with incomes above $100,000 (my definition of “upper middle class” and “rich”).

    Some might think that most of the 31 percent who voted for Trump with incomes under $50,000 came from whites who lost their manufacturing jobs and had trouble finding comparable employment. But they would be wrong. Clinton bested Trump among voters in households with incomes below $50,000 by 12 percentage points

    Quick Takes: You Don’t Know What You’ve Got ‘Til It’s (Almost) Gone
    by Nancy LeTourneau
    January 17, 2017 5:30 PM

    * Robert Pear reports:

    President-elect Donald J. Trump and congressional Republicans appear to have accomplished a feat that President Obama, with all the power at his disposal, could not in the past seven years: They have galvanized outspoken support for the Affordable Care Act.

    People who benefit from the law are flooding Congress with testimonials. Angry consumers are confronting Republican lawmakers. And Democrats who saw the law as a political liability in recent elections have suddenly found their voice, proudly defending the law now that it is in trouble.

    Thousands of people across the country held rallies over the weekend to save the health care law, which Republicans moved last week to repeal with a first but crucial legislative step. A widely circulated video showed Representative Mike Coffman, Republican of Colorado, eluding constituents who had wanted to meet with him to express their concerns on Saturday at a community event in Aurora, Colo. Rallies on Sunday to save the health law drew robust crowds around the country.

    an updated CBO report on what happens if Republicans repeal Obamacare.

    CBO estimates that, compared to what’s already projected to happen under current law:

    * 18 million more people would become uninsured in the first full year after the bill’s enactment — rising to 32 million more people by 2026;
    * premiums in the individual insurance marketplaces would soar — they’d go up 20 to 25 percent above currently projected increases in the first full year after repeal, and “would about double by 2026”;
    * and access to coverage on the individual markets would plummet — about half of the US population would live in areas “that would have no insurer participating” in the individual market, CBO projects.

    The Republicans Are Stuck on Health Care Reform
    by Martin Longman
    January 17, 2017 4:48 PM

    I think it’s reasonable to talk about what would have happen if Congress repeals the Affordable Care Act without replacing it because there is no assurance that anything will replace it. The Republicans can try to reassure people that all these horrible things won’t happen, but there’s no reason to believe they’ll be able to make good on that promise.

    For one thing, the reason that horrible things will happen is because they want to get rid of most of the things that make the health care scheme work. In order to make it possible to be profitable while insuring people with pre-existing conditions, you need lots and lots of healthy people paying premiums who don’t actually use much health care. That’s why there is an individual mandate. The subsidies in the individual market and the Medicaid spending are what makes it affordable for millions of people to get coverage, so if you eliminate or drastically reduce those subsidies, tens of millions will lose their health care access. The Republicans’ plan is not fully developed, but we know that they things they don’t like are the things that keep the insurance pool of young and healthy enough that premiums can be kept at an affordable level.

    What the GOP is going to attempt to do would be unpopular even if they had better intentions for many of the same reasons that Obamacare has struggled to maintain widespread support. People will be forced to change plans and doctors. Insurance companies will stop serving their market. They’ll get blamed for premium hikes even if, somehow, those hikes are lower than they have been in the past.

    To avoid some of this, they’ll need to avoid messing up the scheme, but they can’t do that if they break the scheme apart.

    Most importantly, they’ve arranged things so that they need only fifty votes in the Senate to mess things up but still need sixty (and a majority in the House) to fix them. Republicans won’t want to replace what they’ve just repealed, especially the things they hate. So, it looks like an impossible task to replace Obamacare with anything that would work.

    Trump’s Attempt to Ally with Russia Against China is Equal Parts Racism and Stupidity
    by David Atkins
    January 15, 2017 8:00 AM

    Few people today think much about the George W. Bush Administration prior to 9/11. The collective memory of the early Bush presidency is mostly condensed to the Bush v. Gore Supreme Court decision, followed by not much of interest until the 9/11 attacks. But it’s important to recall that the Bush Administration floundered on foreign policy during its initial year, including an ill-advised staring contest with China after a Chinese pilot collided with an intrusive U.S. spy plane and died, leading to the detainment of 24 U.S. air crew until the Bush Administration finally apologized to China for the incident. Until terrorism rearranged American foreign policy, increased tensions with China were the lead storyline of Republican foreign policy.

    Donald Trump is still six days away from his inauguration and already he and the GOP are ramping up aggressive rhetoric against China. During the same Wall Street Journal interview in which he suggested he would be open to lifting sanctions on Russia, Trump also stated that he might revisit the “One-China” policy regarding Taiwan. This, of course, comes on the heels of Trump speaking directly with the President of Taiwan, which is unprecedented in U.S. foreign policy.

    Meanwhile, Exxon CEO and Trump’s pick for Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said during his confirmation hearing that China should be barred from the islands it has created in the South China Sea.

    Needless to say, China is reacting angrily, warning Trump that the One-China policy is non-negotiable and that attempts to keep China away from its new South China Sea islands would cause a “devastating confrontation” and would lead to a “military clash.”

    All of this is sheer madness. The American relationship with China is complex and problematic for many reasons: China’s human rights record is abysmal and its willingness to steal intellectual property is a significant problem for economies banking on an information economy future. But China is also a crucial trading partner, and the American and Chinese economies depend on one another’s good health.

    The Trump team is taking a dogmatic oppositional approach based on very simplistic notions of trade and jobs. The number of jobs being “lost to China” is quite low compared to those being lost to automation, the best way to counter offshoring is to punish companies domestically rather than to threaten China, and the most effective avenue to protect intellectual property from Chinese theft is the very sort of trade deals Trump has consistently opposed. Adopting a hostile military and trade war footing with China threatens to plunge the world into an economic depression or even a brutal military and cyberwar conflict.

    Something horrid just occurred to me. We’re fucked. Pence is worse.

    Tiny Hands Donny is narcissistic, illiterate, insane, has ADD, the emotional maturity of a 7 year old, is too stupid to understand that Putin will be acting POTUS with a built-in Russian asset-filled cabinet, and has a nuke fetish, but he and 48 dems might be the only thing standing between Medicare/ACA-SHINY IMPROVED OR STFU 2.0 OVERLAY REPLACE WITH SINGLE PAYER NON-PROFIT(because it’s the ONLY sustainable ETHICAL model)/Social Security and The Mitch McConnell/Paul Ryan Final Solution™.

    Unless of course, Pence already has instructions to just sign everything….. then maybe we won’t piss off NATO unless Mitch & Paul are on board with Manafort, Bannon, & Co. Then – Earth is fucked…. any friendly ETs monitoring your very-long experiment down here that can save us? Help?

    All because of an Illegitimate Election perpetrated by a political party that has to cheat with the assistance of a foreign hostile state and other unconstitutional tricks, and a BROKEN Electoral College System, that allows 33 votes to pick a President and failed it’s own Failsafe.

    A New, EMERGENCY Election all the way down the ticket is what we need – as impossible as it sounds, is the right thing to do…because… if SOMEONE nails just ONE of them for espionage before the incoming can stop any investigations… If one goes….. that thread will unravel all of it, which has to happen or we’re lost as a country. How far down the Chain To POTUS do you think it goes, since Ryan is clearly powerhungover at the moment….. I’m sure it goes down that list pretty far with the incoming. We’ll become a land of warring mafias, when law becomes meaningless.

    Or Anonymous can hopefully save us again… seems they’ve got their own dossier on THINGS… because I’d bet most of the silent/pro-Russia GOP money whores/teacraziers are in on it w/Putin. Pence is likely the most clue-free/religous-insane one, of the bunch. Isn’t he the only one without a Russia connection?

    If only Trump would Turn State’s Evidence and he and the Fam went into witness protection and just came clean and SAVED AMERICA?Planet Earth (and that corrupt HATEparty he switched to)…. he’d go down in history as a the world’s greatest hero. A girl can dream.

    Otherwise, here comes the end. Now that they’ll control everything, the GOP have no intention of ever losing power again – which is why Ryan danced when he broke the ACA this week.

    I’ve never been so depressed, scared, and sad for my country. To see the death of the USA. That’s what this feels like to me. A giant sense of foreboding. An end to our Democratic Republic, turned into mist because we allowed it to break…. just when we were reaching the stars and a More Perfect Union.

    It makes me sick that that makes Putin happy… and 30% of my countrymen love Russia more than the US because they’ve been taken advantage of, abused, taught to hate Everything Not Them by fake/packaged/easy “money/religion” (nothing close to actual faith, education about that faith, and knowledge of MATH/Economics), and sucked into by the Cult that is still abusing them. (I refuse to believe it’s more than that. There’s more to the hacking than we know. There are more good people in this country than hateful dicks. We just don’t live them them. And they control the More Important States – so much for our Equal Protection Clause…)

    And they don’t WANT to be helped. Sometimes I think that they’re so far gone, Trump could just ask them to drink the koolaid…. and they most likely would, all the while sticking their fingers in their ears, shouting, “FAKE NEWS FAKE NEWS I CAN’T HEAR YOU” as the rest of us scream at them, “STOP! DON’T DRINK! IT WILL KILL YOU!”

    Reminds me of the coal industry and why humans are idiots: It shouldn’t have taken us to the point of killing the planet to get rid of coal. We should have done it for humanitarian reasons – but again… desperate humans will take desperate measures to survive… even work in a death pit to take care of the humans they love, because that’s the best they can do with the tools they’ve got. Because they’ve been denied the better tools by their lying abuser masters who tell them the tools they need are evil and only evil/bad/not-like-us people use them.

    Hate is a powerful thing. It’s just so damn sad… okay, and now I should go cheer mysellf up with kitten videos….. la la la la la

        When I was recalling how much Rev. Al supported the President, I unfortunately remembered back to how some others didn’t, like Tavis Smiley (out of what I believe started out to be jealousy). I watched his State of the Black Union event for YEARS, before Barack Obama came along. Always enjoyed watching those earlier years, and learned from it, until I had to turn away from Tavis. But today I want to think about good things, and I’ve gotta say this particular segment of the event in February 2008, early in the campaign, came to my mind and luckily I found Dick Gregory’s “performance” on youtube:
