That’s what Trump is doing instead of draining it as he promised. Of course, he never intended to Drain The Swamp. Instead, he and his Rich Cronies, Vampire Squids that they are, will drain The Little People, that means YOU or I should say MOST of YOU with a few rare exceptions, of any blood that hasn’t been “letted” yet. Trump is going to Fill The Swamp to overflowing and Trump’s Swamp is teeming with a plethora of Prehistoric Reptiles ready to devour The Sheep, once again YOU, that graze near The Swamp‘s murky, mucky waters.
As you already know, or you should know, Steve Bannon, Trump’s Chief White House Strategist, is a Goldman Sachs alumnus. Steven Mnuchin (what is it with all these Steve’s?), Trump’s probable pick for Treasury Secretary, is also a Goldman Sachs alumnus, and just yesterday, per the following Bloomberg article, Trump met with Goldman Sachs President, Gary Cohn. If you didn’t already know that Wall Street and The White House are one and the same, now you do. How much more proof do you need? This is The Swamp, folks. And Trump is filling it to overflowing. Not to mention, but I will, Betsy DeVos, Trump’s pick for Education Secretary who wants to put children back to work in coal mines & factories and who is the sister of the infamous mercenary Erik Prince of Blackwater (Swamp Water is often referred to as Black Water) fame, is a billionaire just like Trump. Let me tell you something, PEOPLE. Trump and DeVos and The Rich in general, didn’t get rich because they care about you. They are rich because they USED you to create all that wealth for themselves that they then use to enslave you. Now that one of their own is in The White House, or will be shortly, there will no longer be any need to hide their intentions. They have finally consolidated their power entirely. Wall Street & Washington D.C. are now finally & formally One. And YOU, WE, are so fucking screwed.
Goldman Sachs Group Inc. President Gary Cohn and former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney were meeting Tuesday with Donald Trump as the president-elect and his team consider candidates to fill out key roles in the administration.
Cohn arrived at Trump Tower in Manhattan Tuesday afternoon for a meeting with Trump and Vice President-elect Mike Pence. Trump was then scheduled to go to dinner with Romney, the 2012 Republican presidential nominee who’s a contender for secretary of state. Another potential choice for the nation’s top diplomat, Tennessee Senator Bob Corker, met with Trump earlier in the day.
As he moves through the list of high-level administration jobs he has to fill, Trump on Tuesday announced he’ll nominate Georgia Representative Tom Price, a leading critic of Obamacare, to head the Department of Health and Human Services. A person familiar with the transition said he’s poised to pick former U.S. Labor Secretary Elaine Chao, the wife of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, to be transportation secretary.
Transition spokesman Sean Spicer didn’t give any hint of the agenda for Trump’s meeting with Cohn or whether he’s in line for an administration job. But a person familiar with transition planning said Trump and his aides are still discussing what role he might play, with potential jobs including posts at the Treasury Department or Office of Management and Budget. Cohn also may be considered for the Federal Reserve, said the person, who spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss internal deliberations.
A representative from Trump’s team called Cohn to come in for a meeting and the Goldman Sachs banker agreed to sit down with the president-elect, according to another person who had knowledge of the invitation. Cohn has known Trump’s son-in-law, Jared Kushner, for a while and the two men speak from time to time, the person said, asking for anonymity to discuss private talks.
Fascism, economically at least, is the merger and alignment of Business & Government. Traditionally, Fascism was The Government initiating the Unholy Alliance as was the case in Nazi Germany, Mussolini’s Italy and Franco’s Spain, but these days, it’s Business that has initiated the Unholy Alliance that is now complete, or will be complete January 20th unless a miracle happens. I don’t believe in miracles, so the Unholy Alliance is a Done Deal as far as I’m concerned, and considering the majority of The People are malformed & misinformed, the likelihood of any kind of effective, focused Resistance is improbable. There are Dark Days ahead. Very Dark Days. If you don’t have a pair of Night Vision Goggles, it’s advisable you get some now while supplies last. You don’t want to miss The Horror Show. Oh, you also might want to brush up on your Fascism. Let me suggest a couple of movies — Guillermo del Toro’s Pan’s Labyrinth and Bernardo Bertolucci’s Novecento (1900). What both movies reveal, especially Novecento, is that The Rich deploy Fascism when they sense instability. The Rich recruit and unleash The Fascist Thugs and a sadistic, Unholy Alliance is formed in order to prevent an overthrow by and for The Little People.
