Die Agenda geht unter Trump genauso weiter, wie unter den Vorgängern.
Ich tippe, Trump schmeißt irgendwann hin.
Pence übernimmt
VP dann wird Jeb Bush
.... und "don't name me Jerry" wird weiter dort im Hintergrund rumwuseln  :grins2:


The Art of the Deal, in action:
ZitatTrump warned Freedom Caucus Chairman Mark Meadows, who has led conservative opposition to the Republican health care plan, that "I'm gonna come after you" if he keeps it up, according to multiple sources.

The sources cautioned that Trump may have been "half joking," as one put it. Yet the president did single Meadows out in front of his colleagues, asking the North Carolina Republican to stand up as Trump addressed him.
Na, Herr Meadows, wie stehts mit Männermut vor Königsthronen?  :schlaeger  Nicht dass ich es den finstersten der finsteren Konservativen nicht gönnen würde, wie Schulbuben abgekanzelt zu werden. Was "coming after you" bedeutet, dürfte klar sein, Twitter und Breitbart sei Dank.


Zitat von: Groucho am 20. März 2017, 19:15:43
Den allergrößten Schaden, der dieser Mensch anrichten wird ist, die Lüge als selbstverständliche Kommunikationsform zu etablieren. Das ist das eigentliche Gift. Nicht, dass nicht dauernd irgendwie gelogen würde, das ist in einem gewissen Rahmen eh klar. Es ist diese Selbstverständlichkeit, erstmal vom Gegenteil auszugehen.


Noch mal Obamacare. Es wird eng.
Zitat von: Grump,  the Great Retaliator"I honestly think many of you will lose your seats in 2018 if you don't get this done," Trump warned House Republicans on Tuesday.
Und ich hoffe, dass noch viel mehr ihren Sitz verlieren, wenn sie's gedonet kriegen.


The universe is under NO obligation to make sense to us
(Neil deGrasse Tyson)


ZitatDas FBI kommentiert laufende Ermittlungen nicht. Eigentlich. Nur in außergewöhnlichen Fällen mache man eine Ausnahme - etwa, wenn das öffentliche Interesse überwiege, erklärte Behördenchef James Comey vor dem Geheimdienstausschuss des US-Repräsentantenhauses.

Eine ausländische Einflussnahme auf den US-Präsidentschaftswahlkampf und die möglichen Absprachen zwischen dem Team von Donald Trump und Russland sind offenbar solch ein außergewöhnlicher Fall. Denn auch wenn Comey keine Details nannte, so stellte er doch klar, dass das FBI ermittelt.



Der Ex-Wahlkampfleiter des US-Präsidenten hat laut Medien für einen russischen Oligarchen gearbeitet. Er soll 2005 eine Strategie zum Nutzen von Putin erstellt haben.

Nach Informationen der New York Times steht Manafort auch im Mittelpunkt der FBI-Ermittlungen zu möglichen illegalen Absprachen zwischen Mitarbeitern von Trumps Wahlkampfteam und russischen Offiziellen. Nach Angaben der Zeitung fingen die US-Behörden Telefonate zwischen Manafort und russischen Geheimdienstmitarbeitern während des Wahlkampfs ab. Über den Inhalt wurde aber nichts bekannt. Manafort bestritt, jemals "wissentlich" mit russischen Geheimdienstlern kommuniziert zu haben.

Als FBI-Chef James Comey während einer Anhörung im Kongress zur Russland-Affäre befragt wurde, wollte er keine Namen nennen; auch Manafort wurde von ihm nicht erwähnt. Im Anschluss allerdings mühte sich der Sprecher von Donald Trump, die Verbindungen zwischen dem Lobbyisten und dem Präsidenten zu relativieren. Manafort habe im Wahlkampf "für eine sehr kurze Zeit" nur eine "sehr begrenzte Rolle" gespielt, sagte Sean Spicer. Belegt ist allerdings, dass Manafort von März bis August das Wahlkampfteam Trumps leitete und dort auch eng mit Carter Page, Roger Stone und Michael Flynn zusammenarbeitete, die laut New York Times von der Bundespolizei als die drei anderen zentralen Akteure in der Russland-Affäre angesehen werden.


Also, wer Trump mal kontaktieren möchte: Hier steht, wies geht


Breitbart & Co. eröffnen die Jagd auf hohe Regierungsbeamte (wenn ich career officials mal so übersetzen will).
ZitatConservative news outlets, including one with links to a top White House official, are singling out individual career government employees for criticism, suggesting in articles that certain staffers will not be sufficiently loyal to President Donald Trump by virtue of their work under former President Barack Obama.

The articles — which have appeared in Breitbart News, the Conservative Review and other outlets — have alarmed veteran officials in both parties as well as current executive branch staffers.
Breitbart News, whose former executive chairman Steve Bannon is now Trump's chief strategist, has even published lists of workers that the president should fire.

Was bringt Breitbart eigentlich gegen diese Menschen vor, die gefeuert werden sollen? Z. B.
Zitat von: BreitbartBennett is the classic elite mainstream media journalist:
Das sind alles Schimpfworte, disqualifizieren für jeden Job in der Administration. Oder auch:
Zitat von: BreitbartHer education background tells a lot about her world view: "Ms. Zimmerman has a B.A. with a dual major in Cultural Anthropology and Comparative Literature from the University of California, Berkeley. She also has a Masters in Community Mental Health from the University of California, Berkeley," according to her bio.
Möge Tucholskys Optimismus gerechtfertigt sein (zitiert in  #329):
ZitatUnd wenn alles vorüber ist -: [...] wenn diese Zeitkrankheit vergangen ist, die die niedrigen Eigenschaften des Menschen zu guten umlügt; wenn die Leute zwar nicht klüger, aber milde geworden sind [...] - dann wird es eines Tages wieder sehr modern werden, liberal zu sein.

Und übrigens, über eine andere Kandidatin auf dieser Proskriptionsliste:
Zitat von: BreitbartHer world view, however, is unlikely to align with the policies of President Trump, like many of her colleagues.
"Ms. Zimmerman partners with state, local, community based organizations, and tribes within the Region to promote economic and social well-being of children, families, individuals and communities in the New England region," according to her bio on the HHS website:
Völlig richtig, nur nicht immer so klar von Trumpisten ausgesprochen. "well-being of children, families, individuals and communities" ist gegen die Agenda von Trump.

Was sagt das Weiße Haus dazu:
ZitatA White House official, speaking on background, said: "We don't control the stories that any of these outlets write any more than we control the stories at POLITICO."
Und von allen Beobachtern wird erwartet, dass sie sich die Hosen mit der Kneifzange anziehen. Eine beispiellose Illoyalität gegenüber den eigenen Unterstellten. It's a feature, not a bug: so sieht sie aus, die ,,deconstruction of the administrative state", die Bannonsche Anarchie.


Obamacare, aktueller Stand. Der ,,konservative" (für hiesige Verhältnisse: rechtsextreme) ,,Freedom Caucus" der Konservativen im Kongress (bei dem man sich wirklich fragen muss, Freiheit für wen und von was), ist gegen das Gesetz zur Aufhebung von Obamacare, weil zu wenig radikal. Die wollen gleich noch Medicaid mit abwickeln, wenn sie schon mal dabei sind.
Zitat von: Politico, 29.11.16"They will ... not just roll back five or 10 years of progress — but 50." said Anthony Wright, executive director of Health Access California, a consumer advocacy group that supports Obamacare.
So eine schöne Gelegenheit kommt nicht so schnell wieder. Dem Großen Dealmaker ist die Sache eigentlich eher gleichgültig. Aber er sieht immerhin, dass es eine Niederlage für ihn wäre, wenn dieses - für die übrige zivilisierte Welt unvorstellbare - Gesetzespaket nicht durchkommt. So tut er, was er in solchen Fällen immer tut: ein Gemisch von Drohungen und heuchlerischen Versprechungen ausstoßen. Zu den Versprechungen gehört, die ,,repeal-bill" zu verschärfen, um sie dem Freedom Caucus zu versüßen.

Damit ist sie aber für die ,,gemäßigten" Konservativen ungenießbar, die einen schwachen Reflex sozialer Verantwortung bewahrt haben. Auch wenn es nur darum geht, dass sie um ihre Wiederwahl fürchten.

--> A midday take on what's happening in politics and how to have a sense of humor about it.*

*Ha. Haha. Hahah. Sniff. Haha. Sniff. Ha--breaks down crying hysterically.

Gerade irgendwo aufgeschnappt, ich glaube bei der ZEIT: 1/3 der Europäer vertraut dem eigenen Parlament. Anteil der US-Amerikaner, die dem eigenen Parlament vertrauen: 9%.

Übrigens, der Präsident kann nicht unrecht haben. Weil er nämlich Präsident ist. Und Du nicht, Du kleines Würstchen.
Zitat"That's the story," Trump said as the interview ended. "Hey look, in the meantime, I guess, I can't be doing so badly, because I'm president, and you're not. You know."


ZitatNegotiations between Trump and the arch-conservatives opponents of the bill reached at least a temporary standstill after Freedom Caucus members were told recent concessions to the far-right were a final offer. The group rejected that, wanting more.

Wie heutzutage häufig: vielleicht überdrehen die auch absichtlich, damit das Ding scheitert. Da können sie sich als die kompromisslosen Freiheitskämpfer inszenieren, ohne was aufs Spiel zu setzen. Wer weiß.
