Blacklisted New By James Corbett (Corbett Report) Sat. Eve, Nov.12, 2016
Apparently, some people voted for Trump in the belief that he was some sort of anti-establishment truth-telling hero of the working class. I hate to be the one to disabuse you of this notion, so let’s just look at his transition team. Warning: It’s not a pretty picture.
So who’s leading this transition team that’s helping to sort out the cabinet and move Team Trump into the White House? Oh, just the usual assortment of bankster-connected corporate lobbyists we would expect to be hanging around any president-elect.
This time is no exception. From former Goldman Sachs lobbyist Eric Ueland to Koch Industries lobbyist Michael Catanzaro to Aetna / Verizon lobbyist William Palatucci, the gaggle of corporate cronies manning Trump for America Inc. (the actual nonprofit group set up to oversee the transition) are as establishment as they come. And the whole kit-and-kaboodle is being run by Chris Christie. Yes, that Chris Christie.
And who are they reaching out to for potential positions in the Trump White House?
Steven Mnuchin – He is a 17-year Goldman Sachs veteran who went on to work for Soros Fund Management and he donated to Hillary Clinton. he is apparently a frontrunner to be Secretary of the Treasury in the Trump White House.
Jamie Dimon — is chairman, president and chief executive officer of JPMorgan Chase, the monstrous banking offspring of JP Morgan & Co. and the Rockefellers’ own Chase Manhattan. It would be hard to find a more bankster-y bankster in the world of banksterism.
John Bolton — is a career Republican insider who served roles in both Bush White Houses, including most recently as UN Ambassador in 2005-2006. He’s also the worst kind of crazed, bloodthirsty neocon who has literally never heard of a foreign invasion he didn’t lust after.
He has been name-dropped for months as a possible Secretary of State in the Trump cabinet. Like Hillary, he is a warmonger.
Stephen Hadley – – He is in the running to be Trump’s Secretary of Defense. Hadley was the guy who kept the bogus yellowcake story in Bush’s October 2002 speech in Cincinnati laying out the case for the illegal bloody war of aggression in Iraq.
Reince Priebus — He is under consideration for Trump’s chief of staff, the highest ranking employee of the White House. Nothing says “anti-establishment party outsider” like the current chairman of the Republican National Committee, right?
Rudy Giuliani — is an un-convicted 9/11 criminal who illegally cleared the 9/11 crime scene, and who failed to pass on the prior warning that he received about the towers’ destruction.
Giuliani is also hated by the New York Fire Department for having kicked the firemen off the pile as soon as the gold was discovered. The only question is which spot will he fill in the Trump cabinet: Attorney General, DHS chief, cybersecurity czar, or something else entirely?
Getting nauseated yet? You should be, but if not there are many more contemptible establishment insiders who are being vetted. The not-so-bad news: None of these positions have been filled yet. We don’t know who is going to actually make it into the Trump cabinet at this point.
