I Too Thought The Best Thing To Straighten Out Government Would Be To Put A Businessman In The White House, But Never This One
When Trump Was Challenged By An Interviewer About Having Zero Experience In Government, Policy Making, Domestic and Foreign Policy, I Thought He Gave A Great Businessman Answer: "I'll Surround Myself By The Best And Smartest People" - But He's Already Proved He's Not Capable Of Doing That Either
Myron Ebell Appointed to Head Transition of Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)
"President-elect Donald Trump has made no secret of his disdain for the Environmental Protection Agency, saying the regulations it has put out under President Obama are “a disgrace.” He has vowed to roll back Obama’s signature effort to reduce greenhouse-gas emissions, known as the Clean Power Plan, and to scrap a litany of other “unnecessary” rules, especially those imposed on the oil, gas and coal sectors."
Here are some Stephen Bannon quotes:
ON RACISM / ANTI-SEMITISM:-- In an interview with Mother Jones in August, Bannon acknowledged that white nationalists and anti-Semites are drawn to the so-called “alt-Right” movement.
“Look, are there some people that are white nationalists that are attracted to some of the philosophies of the alt-right? Maybe,” he said. “Are there some people that are anti-Semitic that are attracted? Maybe. Right? Maybe some people are attracted to the alt-right that are homophobes, right? But that’s just like, there are certain elements of the progressive left and the hard left that attract certain elements.” (Mother Jones, August 2016)
ON WOMEN:-- In a 2011 radio interview, Bannon had a hypothesis about why progressive women vilify prominent conservative women like Michele Bachmann and Sarah Palin.
“That’s why there are some unintended consequences of the women’s liberation movement,” he said, according to BuzzFeed. “That, in fact, the women that would lead this country would be pro-family, they would have husbands, they would love their children. They wouldn’t be a bunch of dykes that came from the Seven Sisters schools up in New England. That drives the left insane and that’s why they hate these women.” (Political Vindication Radio, 2011)

Well the transition goes on with more and more proof that the Donald Trump that campaigned IS going to build a cabinet and attempt to institute much of the shocking, racist, misogynistic, hate mongering, and divisiveness in his presidency. I was asked to "give him a chance" and I did. I planned to give him more time but with the picks he has made the message is clear and won't be changing anytime soon.
