Bill de Blasio Gives Donald Trump a Piece of His Mind
http://theslot.jezebel.com/bill-de-blasi...socialflow
The mayor traveled uptown to Donald Trump’s Fifth Avenue residence to voice his concerns over “some of the messages, some of the rhetoric” the reality star voiced during his campaign. “I tried to express to him how much fear there is in communities all over this city,” de Blasio said. As a surrogate for Hillary Clinton, the mayor had said Trump was unfit to be president. Trump, in turn, called de Blasio the “worst mayor in the history of New York City.”

Sounds right....

<Snip>

De Blasio told reporters that the concerns he raised with the president elect included the proposed repeal of the 2010 Dodd-Frank Act, proposed tax cuts for the wealthy and corporations, Trump’s proposed undocumented immigrant deportation plan and the NYPD’s unwillingness to assist it, and Trump’s apparent interest in recommitting to the failed and unconstitutional stop-and-frisk method of policing.

<snip>

In the coming days, the mayor said, his administration will address questions about whether federal officials enforcing a heightened Trump deportation effort will be given access to the city’s IDNYC database, a municipal ID program designed for people with limited documentation. Nearly half a million New Yorkers are undocumented immigrants, and many have participated in the program. In the wake of Trump’s election, de Blasio is considering destroying the database of New Yorkers’ personal information, rather than being forced to turn that information over to federal law enforcement or immigration authorities.

Trump supported Medicaid, saying he would block grant it to the states, Now he wants to let Paul Ryan kill it.

If Republicans get their way, poor people better hope they never get sick again
Medicaid had a good run, while it lasted.

"In 2012, shortly after Republican candidate Mitt Romney selected now-Speaker Paul Ryan as his running mate, a Democratic super PAC convened a focus group to explore whether Romney’s support for Ryan’s budget proposals could be a liability for the presidential candidate. The Ryan Budget, which combines deep cuts to programs like Medicaid and food stamps, big tax breaks for the rich, and Ryan’s signature proposal to repeal Medicare and replace it with a voucher, seemed likely to be unpopular with wide swaths of the electorate.
Yet the focus group uncovered something quite shocking instead. When confronted with the Republican Party’s plan to rewrite America’s social contract, “the respondents simply refused to believe any politician would do such a thing.”
If a health policy student submitted Paul Ryan’s literally unbelievable health care proposals to a college professor, they would receive an F. Ryan could jack up the cost of insuring an individual senior by 40 percent, while simultaneously saddling them with inferior coverage. His primary proposal to insure people who were uninsurable before Obamacare might provide coverage to about 3 million people. Meanwhile, close to 20 million will lose their insurance if Republicans carry out their threat to repeal Obamacare.

The hardest hit group, however, is likely to be the most vulnerable. Republicans plan to cut Medicaid — the primary program providing health care to low-income individuals — by as much as 50 percent over the course of the next ten years. Then they plan to keep going.
Eventually, Republicans would phase out Medicaid, leaving the poorest to fend for themselves."

The Bain Capitol boys are not swamp drainers,... Romney is as corporate and globalist as it gets folks. Trump is laughing at you gullible people that thought Trump was a reformer and a swamp drainer and a billionaire doing good deeds for the middle class and the working poor. Jhikpghf
Romney thinks and says corporations are people, he thinks people are victims ripe for the pickins.

Trump’s Plan To Make You Believe Steve Bannon ‘Embraced Diversity’
No, he didn’t.

"Earlier in the day, Miller used the same exact words to describe Bannon to MSNBC, calling him a person “who’s embraced diversity” and who brings “people together for inclusion, to embrace diversity, [and] has been absolutely fantastic.”

Miller also pushed back against the idea that Bannon is anti-Semitic and racist, telling MSNBC that Bannon “is a Zionist,” and has mentored “African-American youths during his life.”

Yet this description of Bannon runs contrary to most of what Bannon has said and done during his career.

The anti-extremist nonprofit Southern Poverty Law Center recently tweeted that “Stephen Bannon was the main driver behind [Breitbart News] becoming a white ethno-nationalist propaganda mill.”

The Anti-Defamation League also opposed Bannon’s appointment, calling Breitbart News “the premier website of the alt-right, a loose-knit group of white nationalists and unabashed anti-Semites and racists.” "

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/trum...s_politics

Transcript from today's NPR interview with journalist who followed Bannon fo a year leading up to the election.

TERRY GROSS, HOST:

"This is FRESH AIR. I'm Terry Gross. Perhaps the most controversial move Donald Trump has made since winning the election is the appointment of his campaign chair Steve Bannon as chief strategist and senior counselor for the president. Before joining the campaign, Bannon was executive chair of Breitbart News, a far right website that revels in provocative stories and headlines such as "Birth Control Makes Women Unattractive And Crazy" and "Bill Kristol: A Republican Spoiler Renegade Jew." A New York Times editorial condemned Bannon's appointment, and the Southern Poverty Law Center is circulating a petition urging Trump to rescind the pick.

The center has called Breitbart News a white ethno nationalist propaganda mill. Bannon has described Breitbart News as a platform for the alt-right, but he disputes the charge that he or the website embraces racism or anti-Semitism. To learn more about Bannon, we're going to hear from Joshua Green of Bloomberg Businessweek who wrote a lengthy profile of him last year before Bannon joined the Trump campaign. Green is the magazine's senior national correspondent and a weekly columnist for The Boston Globe. He spoke with FRESH AIR's Dave Davies.

DAVE DAVIES, BYLINE: Well, Joshua Green, welcome to FRESH AIR. Let's start at the beginning. Tell us about Steve Bannon. Where did he grow up? What was his background like?

JOSHUA GREEN: Well, Bannon grew up in a blue-collar, Irish-Catholic family outside a naval base near Richmond, Va. And after college, he joined the Navy - this was in the late '70s - wound up with a job in the Pentagon got a Master's degree in Georgetown. And he became captivated, I think, by what he saw going on on Wall Street. This was the '80s. It was Ronald Reagan being an investment banker seemed like an adventure. He said that friends who were in the field told him, you know, if you really want to be a good investment banker, you need to go to Harvard Business School. And so he applied, got in, and that was the path that he took.

DAVIES: Got out started working at Goldman Sachs. What did he do? What did he specialize in?

RE: Trump's Gross Hypocrisy Thread, post em while you still can: UPDATES
From NPR interview

Green: And so I think that Trump has a degree of faith in Bannon that he doesn't have in another people. And I think that's why Trump has been willing to withstand all the intense criticism over the Bannon appointment that we've seen in the last few days. To me it's sort of like the least shocking aspect of what Trump has done in appointing Bannon to the West Wing. I mean, the guy hatched this elaborate plan to stop Clinton, and it worked."

Yep, he knows who will be loyal to him. And now we see Mr Trump consolidating power by bringing his former 'enemies' and detractors into the inner circle - Romney, Cruz and others. This way in 4 years from now, he has fewer opponents to hinder his re-election while bringing the party together and making it stronger.. all of which serve his current and future interests..

Classic and predictable move. Trump using game theory and power-leader tactics to consolidate power.

iirc, The majority of Washington can't stand Cruz to begin with.
As long as Trump doesn't try and put him on the SCOTUS, which I highly doubt because it's such a prestigious position and I don't think that Trump would give him the honor, yet I could be wrong..once again.chuckle
