Week 1 in the White House
Jan 28, 2017, 08:13
Here's some stuff Donald Trump did in his first week. Give the guy a chance, he's putting America first, etc. This is the honeymoon period.

Supposed to be another 207 to go so I wonder what depths he could sink to. & just seen a line of succession should something happen to him. Just as bad, possibly worse cos not batshit.
&the idea that he is setting precedent for future behaviour by others is as worrying. Heck, will there be others if he erases the future?

You have to laugh though. I'm quite happy for DT to be isolationist. At least we won't have to deal with the moron. Theresa May is now a laughing stock too. Angela Merkel won't be going to Washington DC anytime soon, and for good reason. Holding hands with an almost verified sex offender, whilst the UK jails and Dolphin Square and parliament are rife with sexual abuse. That is fucking desperate and almost hypocracy.

Anyway, DT is now officially Rufus T. Firefly -

"I'm against it".

Very happy he pulled out of TPP, and have enjoyed seeing him continue to antagonize the lazy and unimaginative press. Other stuff, like his condemnation of Chelsea Manning and affirmation that torture "works" have been disgusting. I see Trump chiefly as a Loki-type figure, whose main historical role is to destabilize the Empire. In that, he has been successful.

The lancing of the putrid boil of the US Corporation led ram-raid on UK public assetts which was TPP is to be highly commended. Well done Donald.

He hasn't started any major wars. Hillary and Obama lovingly and quietly ran the longest war in US history and started and sponsored many more. Wars of aggression which clearly break International Treaties. The slime of their years shall reek for 100 years.

Donald also tossed the ObamaCare horseshit. Good. It benefitted no-one but the Mega-Healthcare-Industry and Insurance Corporations who take govt and individuals money then find endless loopholes to NOT provide. Flush the john Donald! Drain the swamp. If Donald only starts one war - he will only have done one ninth of the damage which those "peacemakers" and "hope offerers" Obama and Hillary delivered.

Trump has not pulled out of anything. He sees other countries as 30 day business partners, which to an extent is true, but it doesn't buy confidence in the markets. Markets are important though, not wishy washy stuff as it dictates how much money you have in your pocket. I guarantee within 6 months the USA economy will collapse if he wants to spend. If you are going to use a moneterist policy (which is OK) you have to do it slowly. And make sure people have jobs in all sectors of the economy.

Trump hasn't a clue. His economic advisers will tell him so. USA cannot stand alone. It's a trading country. Futile and impossible. He will treat workers like shit, because that's all he knows - and expects people to work for the good 'ole USA.

He's a capitalist and is no friend of the working man or woman.

Has the tax issue even been mentioned again? Fight the bully!

Hasn't started any major wars? I haven't seen any executive signature powers stopping them?

It's quite ironic that Trump Tower is in New York City, and most New Yorkers (State too) can't stand him!

Seeing so9me really dodgy stuff re the military on Rachel Maddow. His comments about taking the oil are not going to help those in the army in Iraq.

So wondering what the military's response to him is going to be.
& if undermining confidence in the honesty of the army's motivations in being in any country they are in is going to lead to conflict in itself.

Would be wonderful if somebody took his won words on use of arms literally and disposed of him accordingly. He doesn't really seem to be giving too much of a fuck who he's pissing off. Hope his relationship with army and intelligence continues the way it started.

But his line of succession is dodgy as fuck too.

Great points, HD. As someone who identifies with the left, I've been constantly befuddled these past years how so many "leftists" can support Obama / Hilary, despite their foreign policies being no better (and perhaps even worse) than Bush. Back in the '60s, American leftists were not fooled by this "we've got a Democrat in the White House so we've got to support him" bullshit. They rose in the streets by the hundreds of thousands against Johnson. True progressives are able to tell the difference between the greater and lesser evil. And clearly, destabilizing entire nations in an illegal fashion is much worse than bragging to a guy in private about how much pussy you get.

Sadly, the dead-end of identity politics has so decimated the Western left that I doubt there will be a resurgent anti-imperialist movement any time soon. More likely is that there will be yet another American-sponsored color revolution, this time of the "pink" variety, and ironically on US soil.

What line of succession? In a way it was good that Hillary Clinton didn't get in. For far too long USA politics has been a family business. It's not the local butchers shop - or perhaps it is! That needs to stop. Democracy?

"Donald also tossed the ObamaCare horseshit. Good. It benefitted no-one but the Mega-Healthcare-Industry and Insurance Corporations who take govt and individuals money then find endless loopholes to NOT provide."

I was under the impression it was benefitting poor people who wouldn't otherwise be able to afford treatment if they got ill?

You know in a sort of compassionate, socially progressive sort of way. Rather than a checking your credentials before they put you in the ambulance, dying of avoidable problems sort of way.

Of course DT has no ties or sympathy for big business, why would he want them to benefit from such a thing. (that's sarcasm)

If he's cutting help to poor people, it's because (like the tories) he doesn't believe in wasting money on riffraff. Don't pretend it's anything to do with 'draining the swamp', that's just wilful spin.
