What could possibly go right...???

President Obama comes thru again...

President Barack Obama has ordered the dismantling of a national registry program that targeted Muslim-majority countries and was seen as likely to be used by Trump to implement his ban on Muslims.

I am so proud to have lived with an Obama presidency...THANK YOU to the Obama family..

Robert Reich...

Never before in the history of the United States has a president-elect sought to influence foreign policy in a way different from that of a sitting president. Trump will not become president for another 29 days, but his disdain for our democratic institutions knows no bounds. He has already upset the delicate balance the U.S. has maintained between Taiwan and China, and now he’s pushing his way into the even more delicate issue of Israel’s expansion of settlements in the occupied West Bank and East Jerusalem.

The world is too unstable for this arrogant man to blindly assert himself when he doesn’t yet have any authority, nor even a State Department to advise him. Trump is a bull in a China shop, when the China shop is the world and his bull threatens us all.

What do you think?

Predictions...

PREDICTIONS:

> Trump will remain UNCONCERNED about conflicts-of-interest, accountability, or even the Constitution. In fact, he will USE his presidential leverage to further enrich himself.
> Trump's children will continue to be involved in both his business and government decisions.
> Trump properties around the world will be routinely attacked by terrorists, and Trump will continue to blame ALL Muslims for it.
> Trump will mishandle our military, and there will be considerable unnecessary suffering and loss of life.
> Hate groups will be emboldened.
> Women's reproductive rights will come under attack, with the ultimate goal of repealing Roe v. Wade
> LGBT's will lose ground.
> The environment will suffer.
> Sanctions against Russia will be lifted, and Putin will get his half-TRILLION dollar deal with Exxon.
> There will be a serious increase in the national debt.
> Trump will mishandle the economy, and there will be another crisis.
> There will be lots more tax cuts, perks, and benefits for corporations and wealthy individuals.
> Trump will continue to lie often, and his supporters will foolishly continue to believe him.

> Also, there will be efforts to:

* Privatize Medicare
* Privatize Social Security
* Privatize VA
* Take away healthcare from 20 million people and offer no replacement
* Undo Wall Street reforms and repeal Dodd-Frank
* Begin dismantling of Planned Parenthood and Consumer Protection Bureau
* Reverse net neutrality rules to favor ISP's, NOT users

Recurring themes for this administration will be:

1. More for 1%, less for everyone else.
2. Government intrusion in to people's lives.
3. Dangerous incompetence of Trump and his advisors.

In sum, Trump's presidency will be an ongoing DISASTER. Don't just take my word for it ...

Leading REPUBLICAN opinions of Trump (during campaign):

> “Donald Trump is a phony, a fraud. His promises are as worthless as a degree from Trump University. He's playing the American public for suckers" -- Mitt Romney

> "He's said terrible things about women, terrible things about the military. I don't understand why people are for him, for that reason." -- Barbara Bush (Entire Bush family has similar sentiments)

> "If we nominate Trump, we will get destroyed.......and we will deserve it." -- Senator Lindsey Graham

> "You could be living on a diet of lead paint, cheap vodka and Real Housewives and still know more than Trump does about, well, everything." -- Rick Wilson, GOP strategist

> "Donald Trump is epically unprepared to be president. He has no realistic policies, no advisers, no capacity to learn. His vast narcissism makes him a closed fortress. He doesn’t know what he doesn’t know and he’s uninterested in finding out. He insults the office Abraham Lincoln once occupied by running for it with less preparation than most of us would undertake to buy a sofa." -- David Brooks, New York Times conservative columnist

>>> Trump is a dangerous, egotistical CON MAN offering empty promises, inflammatory rhetoric, insults, anger, and racism. He's a man who has NO understanding of the common people, cares for no one but himself, and has no idea what he's talking about. He's by far the WORST excuse for a President I've ever seen.

I close with one other quote from Senator Lindsey Graham:

"My party has gone batshit crazy."

They will have select committees for 3 yrs talking about infrastructure,, wanna guess how much construction we actually get... .

Greenwald is starting to become yesterday's news...like Assange ...

Neither the CIA nor any other government agency has presented a shred of evidence to support its accusation that the Russian govt was behind the DNC & Podesta hacks.

Here's an MSNBC segment I just did on why no rational person should believe such claims until there's convincing evidence presented to support them:

Trump vineyard asks to have more foreign workers: report

Source: The Hill

A Virginia winery owned by President-elect Donald Trump’s son is seeking more foreign workers, according to a new report.

The Department of Labor petitioned for the winery, called Trump Vineyard Estates, to bring in six foreign workers using the federal government’s temporary work visa program known as H-2, BuzzFeed reported on Wednesday.

Trump’s son Eric owns the Virginia vineyard.
BuzzFeed News reported that companies owned by Trump or that bear his name have asked for permission from the Department of Labor to bring at least 263 temporary foreign workers to the U.S. since he launched

BuzzFeed also reported that workers on these temporary visas often undergo difficult working conditions with minimal pay.

On the campaign trail, Trump often promised he would bring jobs back to Americans. One of Trump's biggest campaign promises was to bring manufacturing jobs back to the U.S.
