Berührt eines unserer Kernthemen: Verschwörungstheorie. Das hier sieht aus, als wäre es die derzeit weltweit wirksamste Verschwörungstheorie: Deep State.

Ich habe es noch nicht gelesen, aber möchte es wiederfinden und parke das mal hier.

ZitatEPA Administrator Scott Pruitt said Thursday that carbon dioxide emitted by human activity is not the primary driver of climate change, a conclusion out of step with mainstream climate science that drew immediate condemnation from Democrats and environmentalists.

Man darf auf die Statements gespannt sein, die der neue FDA-Chef und der designierte oberste Impfaufseher Kennedy so ablassen werden, wenn sie erst mal fest im Sattel sitzen.

ZitatRPS: Panic strikes West Wing as Spicer heard saying "I don't know," when asked if POTUS would still have picked Flynn knowing he's foreign agent.

RPS: What was panic now has become celebration. No follow up Q. No coverage so far. Media becoming docile toward WH, ignoring obv attack point.

Charles: Media waiting til proper time to strike hard.

RPS: That WAS the proper time to strike. They're afraid to press too hard,don't want to lose access. That was plan, it's working.

Amey Adkins‏: They've gone docile because they're busy investigating Trump's ties to Russia.  They aren't interested in his BS.

RPS: No, that's not what happened today. They are allowing themselves to be whipped into submission.

Deep State Destroyer‏*: You people failed at trying to destroy 

Kūikawā: Maddow** isn't ignoring it. She's blowing it wide open.

RPS: And how is that even possible? It just happened this afternooon. WAKE UP AMERICA!!

Kūikawā: She's been on to Flynn for days. Swalwell even posted a whole section on his website tying it all together.

RPS: WHAT THE HELL IS WRONG WITH YOU PEOPLE!?!?! READ!!! PAY FUCKING ATTENTION TO YOUR COUNTRY BEING KILLED!!

RPS: PAY. ATTENTION.
The NATIONAL SECURITY ADVISOR worked for foreign gov. Correct answer to Spicer's Q should have been "NO CHANCE IN HELL!"

RPS: Should have been a death blow. This should be the ONLY thing on every channel, every website, right now. But media didn't even blink.

Lauren22: what should have been death blow?

RPS: B/c under no circumstances should a foreign agent be National Security Advisor. PERIOD! Why is this so hard to understand?

Lynne: when was this said?

RPS: Today's press briefing. At 1st, everyone in WW panicked. But media didn't attack so POTUS is celebrating fact he now owns them.

Lynne: the time to strike was while the iron was hot. Now they can plan/backpedal/laugh it off as slip of tongue.

RPS: Exactly! Was an prime chance to extract info. Every reporter should have hammered away. Instead, they were like Theon Greyjoy.

Kommen wir in den Rust Belt. Warum ist Trump gewählt worden. Er soll seine Versprechen einlösen, sagen die Arbeiter.
Zitat
Well, here's the truth: The working men and women of this country are working more jobs and more hours, and they're still barely hanging on. Beneath those fingertips, they can feel that middle-class dream – the American dream – slipping right away from them. It's time for President Trump to do something about it.
[...]
We marched in Canton because Nissan isn't giving its workers the dignity and respect they earn every single day along that assembly line. They are furloughed for the equivalent of months throughout the year, killing plans for homeownership. They don't have a predictable schedule, putting college tuition for their kids out of reach. They've even had their pensions frozen, making dreams of retirement seem more like a cruel joke than an attainable goal.
http://thehill.com/blogs/pundits-blog/the-administration/323268-the-truth-about-american-wages
Bitter (das sage ich ohne jede Ironie). Aber warum, in aller Welt, sollte ausgerechnet Trump der Richtige sein, das zu ändern?
ZitatWe know that he can do this, because he's done it before. Workers at the Trump International Hotel – a federally owned property – were allowed to form a union shortly after President Trump was elected. It's time to demand that other federal contractors do the same thing.
Trump, der Vorkämpfer für die Arbeiterklasse. Seine eigenen Angestellten sind da offenbar nicht so zuversichtlich:
ZitatTrump hotel union says he's 'breaking the law' and isn't the great negotiator he claims to be
http://www.businessinsider.de/trump-hotel-workers-say-boss-isnt-fit-to-be-president-2016-11
Und Trump war auch ganz eifrig, die Gewerkschaft reinzulassen:
ZitatDespite the hotel's efforts to kill such a move, the Las Vegas hotel workers voted last December to unionize.

But Trump failed to come to the bargaining table, leading UNITE HERE in September to call for a boycott of all Trump businesses and point to the billionaire's "indefensible anti-worker" presidential campaign.

Wie dem auch sei. Unnütze Geldausgaben jedenfalls wurden jetzt schon mal abgeschafft:
ZitatAn obituary: The National Endowment for the Arts, 52, of unnatural causes

The National Endowment for the Arts, aged 52, has finally died. [...] The NEA expired under the care of President Donald Trump and the Tea Party Congress. It leaves as survivors its parent, the United States government. We are now the only country in the world without a federal arts presence.
http://thehill.com/blogs/congress-blog/education/322704-an-obituary-the-national-endowment-for-the-arts-52-of-unnatural
Das war einfach - und geräuschlos. Die Interieur-Fotos der Trump-Paläste zu sehen, ist zukünftig Kunst genug.

Es ist unmöglich, über die zahlreichen Bedrohlichkeiten (man kann sie nicht ernst genug nehmen), Schändlichkeiten und Schäbigkeiten auf dem Laufenden zu bleiben, die sich in der amerikanischen Administration abspielen. Aber eine besonders eigentümliche, vielleicht charakteristische, Angelegenheit will ich festhalten.

Ein Aufpasser Trumps im Department of Energy, Sid Bowdidge,
Zitathad received a nameplate and taken up residence this week in the director's office of the agency's Office of Technology Transitions. [...] but it was not clear precisely when he started or what his job would be. OTT specializes in shepherding research developed at the national labs into the private sector. [...] theoretically, overseeing the policy around commercializing billions of dollars of federal research

Sein beruflicher Hintergrund und Werdegang:
Zitata massage therapist from New Hampshire with no apparent relevant experience to work at the Energy Department

Was qualifiziert ihn für diesen Job:
ZitatBefore joining DOE, Bowdidge worked for the Trump campaign

Und was hat er sonst noch so zu bieten?
ZitatIn a tweet on Dec. 6, 2015, wrote that "Obama won't use the term radical Islam because they're his relatives!!!!" A day later, replying to a CNN tweet that included a picture of the suspected San Bernardino shooters, Bowdidge wrote, "Scum sucking maggots of the world. Exterminate them all."
And during a dispute with someone on Twitter a week later, Bowdidge replied to the person "wouldn't say that if it was your wife, sister or family member that was murdered by some Muslim piece of shit."

Ein ,,Reporter" von Gateway Pundit, einer alt-right website, im Presseraum des Weißen Hauses zugelassen. John Decker von Fox kritisiert das öffentlich.
Zitat"Props to Jon Decker for speaking up in the press room. It would be much harder for a minority reporter to speak up like he did," the correspondent* said. "As a member of the WHCA board** and as a white man him standing up and saying that meant a lot to reporters in the room."
http://www.politico.com/blogs/on-media/2017/03/fox-news-radio-correspondent-gateway-pundit-writer-235942

Fox als letzter Vertreter des Anstands im Presseraum.
Zitat von: RPSMedia becoming docile toward WH [...] They are allowing themselves to be whipped into submission.

Übrigens. Es hat keine physische Berührung zwischen dem Fox-Reporter und dem Gateway-Pundit-Vertreter stattgefunden. Der Gateway Pundit-Bericht:
ZitatShortly after the interaction, Gateway Pundit published a post claiming that Decker grabbed Wintrich's arm, assaulted him and shouted that he was a Nazi and that The Gateway Pundit "is a white supremacist publication."

Man kann anständig sein. Man kann klug sein. Man kann Republikaner sein. Aber nicht gleichzeitig.

Fortsetzung von #676.



Der Außenminister der Vereinigten Staaten von Amerika hat keine Ahnung, dass der Außenminister des Nachbarlandes in der Hauptstadt zu Gesprächen ist.

Mehr Details hier.
http://www.vox.com/world/2017/3/10/14882684/state-department-mexico-briefing
ZitatThere are two major takeaways:

1. Tillerson's State Department is so poorly staffed (he doesn't yet have a deputy or a permanent spokesperson) and out of the loop on high-level decision-making that its press secretary wasn't even informed of a visit by the top diplomat from one of Washington's most important strategic partners.
2. Foreign governments appear to be recognizing State's weakness in the Trump administration and are bypassing America's trained diplomatic corps. Instead, they're speaking directly with White House aides whom they see as wielding real influence over the president. That includes ones like Jared Kushner — Trump's son-in-law, who has no experience in international affairs or diplomacy.

Der Republikaner Steve King (Repräsentantenhaus) hat eine großartige Idee, sich in der Öffentlichkeit zu platzieren:
Zitat von: The Hill


King in a tweet praised Geert Wilders, including a cartoon depicting Wilders plugging a hole in a wall that reads "Western civilization."
"Wilders understands that culture and demographics are our destiny. We can't restore our civilization with somebody else's babies," the congressman wrote.
Leicht ungläubig wird er gefragt, was er eigentlich meine (auch von seinen Parteifreunden).
Zitat von: KingI meant exactly what I said
Ich verstehe gar nicht, was seine Parteifreunde da nicht verstehen: Einreise- und Einwanderungsverbot für alle, Abtreibungs- und Verhütungsverbot. Was sonst?

Außerdem, ganz am Rande: Die Abschaffung von Obamacare ist noch immer nicht in trockenen Tüchern.
ZitatIf Congress can't pass the current flawed Republican plan, Trump told leading conservative groups last week, he has a Plan B. It is to keep badmouthing the Affordable Care Act as a "disaster" and then blame Democrats when ObamaCare collapses.
He is going to need a Plan C because there is a big problem with Plan B.
If the Affordable Care Act ever fails, it will be because of Republicans.

Was hat sich Groetaz dazu als Plan C ausgedacht?
ZitatTrump last week also claimed Obamacare was a ticking time bomb set to detonate in 2017, once he [gemeint: Obama] was no longer in the White House.
Vor dem 8.11.16 hatte niemand außer Michael Moore ernsthaft damit gerechnet, dass Trump gewählt werden könnte – die Bombe wäre also für Hillary bestimmt gewesen. Aber infolge der trumpistischen Überflutung mit gefährlichem Schwachsinn ist der bloß lächerliche Schwachsinn kaum der Rede wert.

Das Neueste aus der Satiresendung Presse-Briefing im Weißen Haus:

ZitatTrump has said the jobs reports are both — they were fake when they were positive during President Barack Obama's administration but are "very real now" that Trump is in the White House.

That fantastical logic led to direct questions Monday about whether the president's explosive, evidence-free charge that Obama wiretapped Trump Tower during the presidential campaign and his unsubstantiated claim that millions voted illegally for Hillary Clinton in the presidential election should be believed.

"If he's not joking, of course," Spicer said about when Trump should be trusted. "Every time that he speaks authoritatively — that he speaks, he's speaking as president of the United States."

Zitat
Roughly 24 million more people would be uninsured over a decade if the House Republican Obamacare repeal bill is enacted, according to a much-anticipated Congressional Budget Office analysis that could threaten GOP hopes of getting the measure through the House in the coming weeks.

The legislation would lead to 14 million more people being uninsured in 2018 alone. The nonpartisan scorekeeping office also forecast the GOP plan would cut the deficit by $337 billion over a decade, primarily because of the legislation's cuts to Medicaid and private insurance subsidies.

In total, CBO estimated that 52 million people in the U.S. would be uninsured in 2026 if the House bill became law, completely wiping out the insurance gains that have been made under Obamacare over the last seven years.

Der Hammer. Da kriegen ganz schön viele Leute die Freiheit, auf ganz ganz viele iPhones zu verzichten.   

Kein Wunder, dass die Republikaner keinerlei Verlangen hatten, diese Zahlen zu erfahren. Da kann der Zynismus Ryans, nicht zu reden vom dem des Freedom Caucus, mal durch ein Stahlgewitter gehen. Was nicht tötet macht hart - besser gesagt: Die Härte der einen tötet die anderen.

Zitat


Nach einem der schwersten Schneestürme in den USA seit Jahrzehnten sind am Montag die Ministerien und Behörden in Washington geschlossen geblieben. Von den drei großen Flughäfen der Ostküsten-Region hatte am Sonntagabend nur Baltimore eine Piste geöffnet, der Dulles International Airport bei Washington und der Reagan National Airport stellten ihren Betrieb ein. Die meisten Busverbindungen in und um Washington wurden unterbrochen, mehrere oberirdische U-Bahn-Stationen blieben geschlossen. Washingtons Vororte waren vom öffentlichen Nahverkehr abgeschnitten. – Quelle: http://www.ksta.de/12729052 ©2017

Gespenstisch.

Für Diktaturen und Diktatoren aber durchaus nicht ungewöhnlich. Über den römischen Kaiser Domitian wird berichtet:
ZitatHe was treacherous as well as secretive, feeling no affection for anyone (except women). He was extremely vain and very self-conscience of his being bald. As his reign progressed and the pressures of ruling mounted, his paranoia seized him.

Sueton hat dazu:
ZitatHe slew Aelius Lamia for joking remarks, which were reflections on him, it is true, but made long before and harmless.
[...]
His savage cruelty was not only excessive, but also cunning and sudden. He invited one of his stewards to his bed-chamber the day before crucifying him, made him sit beside him on his couch, and dismissed him in a secure and gay frame of mind, even deigning to send him a share of his dinner.
[...]
As the time when he anticipated danger drew near, becoming still more anxious every day, he lined the walls of the colonnades in which he used to walk with phengite stone, to be able to see in its brilliant surface the reflection of all that went on behind his back.

Perspektive? Mehr als die Hälfte der römischen Kaiser ist nicht im eigenen Bett gestorben. Noch einmal Sueton:
ZitatIn this way he became an object of terror and hatred to all, but he was overthrown at last by a conspiracy of his friends and favourite freedmen
