The past tells us plenty about what to expect from the ‘gaslighter in chief.’

The most disorienting week in American politics just happened. And it could get worse.

I can't imagine just where he got the idea this sort of behavior is acceptable.

So true.

"Separately, when asked what Mr Trump could do to make sure German customers bought more American cars, Germany’s economy minister Sigmar Gabriel said on Monday: “Build better cars.”

If we are capitalists who look to the free market, then the answer should always be to lessen, not increase, government interference in the marketplace. Trump is not a capitalist at all, but a scam artist and mercantilist.

Donald J. Trump, and eventually his children, repeatedly sought business in Russia as far back as 1987, in a variety of ventures. But none got off the ground.

"Patriotism means standing up for your country's values, not pledging personal allegiance to Dear Leader," Paul Krugman writes in The New York Times Opinion Section.

You remember that swamp you were draining? Where D.C. political elites do things to enrich themselves that would be illegal or unethical if you or I did it? Where they use the privilege of their office to financially benefit themselves?

Well, apparently this guy thought it would be just peachy to invest money in a company and a few days later introduce a bill that would benefit that very company.

Not that it wa the only time. From the article: "The issue has become a major liability for the congressman after The Wall Street Journal reported last month that he traded roughly $300,000 that could impact them."

Drain the swamp? Hardly.
Rep. Tom Price purchased shares in a medical device manufacturer days before introducing legislation that would have directly benefited the company, records show

"“It’s when there are allegations made about leaking or about dishonesty or a lack of integrity, that’s where I think the line is crossed,” he continued, taking particular umbrage at Mr. Trump’s comments last week that leaking intelligence on political figures was something that Nazi Germany “would have done and did do.”

“Tell the families of those 117 CIA officers who are forever memorialized on our wall of honor that their loved ones who gave their lives were akin to Nazis,” Mr. Brennan said. “Tell the CIA officers who are serving in harm’s way right now and their families who are worried about them that they are akin to Nazi Germany. I found that to be very repugnant, and I will forever stand up for the integrity and patriotism of my officers who have done much over the years to sacrifice for their fellow citizens.”"
Outgoing CIA Director John Brennan rejected Donald Trump’s suggestions that he may have leaked an unsubstantiated dossier on the president-elect while defending the U.S. intelligence community more broadly.

Tyrants don’t allow open questioning, and they hate the free press. They want total control. That’s why, according to three senior officials on the transition team, the incoming Trump administration...

Story

Love learning new things.
Introduction
Dad, Consultant, Cornellian, traditional liberal (it's about free markets, free trade and free speech), avid reader and film buff, youth soccer, basketball, little league coach, tech geek, policy wonk, historian, SF lover, sports fan and even more which at some point I'll get to. I truly enjoy open, tolerant, frank yet respectful exchanges. Love learning new things.

I love to share all kinds of posts and have respectful, intelligent debates and conversations. While many posts will be related to politics or issues of personal liberty and freedom, you'll also find a fair number of other things given my wide range of, at times, eclectic interest. The main thing is to be respectful and have fun. Also, don't be afraid to moderate the comment threads on your own posts (I'm not). If people can't be polite and civil, don't be afraid to block them. Being open to conflicting and different ideas does not mean you have to accept rudeness.

Grew up back East in NYC, engineer and ROTC in college, though now live on the West Coast and have lived and traveled all over the world as a kid and an adult (if i can just get to Antarctica, I can nail down every continent). Member, Pacific Council on International Policy.
