That is not an argument.

That is ad-hominem - the last resort of a loser who can't make a proper argument.

Warren is an academic by background with expertise in banking issues. So where are her suggestions for Treasury secretary? If Trump's pick is so bad, shouldn't she use her expertise to suggest some alternatives?

She won't suggest anybody because there is nobody to name who most people would like. Treasury has to be an experienced banker. It's a small world up there.

In other words, she wants to criticize Trump's pick but in reality could do no better herself. Obviously, she knows this. She's just going to try and hog the spotlight to set up a run for President herself in 2020.

Trump is already off to a really bad start. I hope he wasn't all lies.

This is Very Hard To Believe coming from the Indian Princess . " Wall Street " was Hillary Clinton's Largest Donors to Her Campaign .


" Hillary Clinton is Wall Street’s preferred candidate: Financial execs pouring millions into her campaign to defeat Trump "



It’s official: Hillary Clinton is the preferred presidential candidate of Wall Street.

As it looks more and more like the 2016 presidential election will be between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump, Wall Street is making it clear which side it’s on.

Wall Street has raised nearly $23 million for Clinton this election. At least $4.2 million from Wall Street has gone into Clinton’s presidential campaign, and another $18.7 million has gone to the super PAC backing her, The Wall Street Journal reported Sunday.

In March alone, Wall Street raised $344,000 for Clinton — more than all other candidates combined.

Clinton received 53 percent of Wall Street donations in March, according to a Wall Street Journal analysis of fundraising data gathered by the nonpartisan non-profit research organization the Center for Responsive Politics.

While Warren is grandstanding and didn't offer any suggestions of her own, I agree that Giuliani is a terrible pick for State, and John Bolton is even worse.

Secretary of State used to be like an auto mechanic. When you need an auto mechanic, you can't call somebody else. You can't call a car salesman or a race car driver even, only a mechanic will do. If Trump picks Giuliani or Bolton, it will be three blatantly unqualified Secretaries of State in a row: Clinton, Kerry, and then Giuliani/Bolton. The last qualified specialist, like her or not, would be Condoleezza Rice.

What has happened to what was once the most respected cabinet position?

Furthermore, Clinton and Giuliani were both experienced enough lawyers that Attorney General would not be or have been much of a stretch for either of them, yet both are/were uninterested in AG and instead want/wanted the State department when neither had a background that at all suggested they were qualified for it. What is up with that? Why turn down the spot they are/were qualified for and go for State instead?

I would be more worried about Trump attempting to get his kids national security clearance.
I know one thing though If Trump is not a billionaire now he will be when he leaves the whitehouse.

I agree with you that Rice was qualified, but how wasn't Kerry qualified? A major part of his career has dealt with foreign policy.

I'm pretty sure that most people who voted for Trump don't care what Warren thinks.

The problems that Trump promised to address included a draining of the swamp.

I KNOW that a great deal of people were hoping that might mean forcing representatives to be representatives of the people, rather than of special financial interest blocs. Getting the money out of politics, putting the law, the constitution, and above all else the needs of the people before the concerns of private organisations with so much money that they need never want for anything, save to have more of it than they had before.

I hate to say it, but it seems very much as if what I feared might happen, is happening.

Trump is going to appoint people to positions of power, who have a vested interest in making things turn out well for a tiny minority, at the expense of the taxpayer.

Again. After promising to be different, promising to clean up politics and do business differently, this very much looks like not just business as usual, but full and total union between business and government, corporatocracy in effect. Now, there are some ignorant fools who refuse to accept that having a democratic vote means that your nation is not ONLY a republic, but a democratic one. But neither blinkered adherents of pure democracy, nor the intellectually stunted who refuse to accept any but the republican element of their society, can possibly argue that the one thing the US was never, EVER supposed to be, was a corporatocracy.

This MUST surely be against the public interest? Surely you can come together on this? The slickest conman since the Emperor bought his new clothes, is upon you. Will you, in your division, allow him to steal the country from you, while you all fight one another?

Warren? really, really, the one that have been foaming at the snout since Trump won the election, she is been making a fool of herself on national pro Hillary TV.

She bought her senate seat for 5.7 million and I am sure that it was not the regular rural American the one with that kind of money to give away. Warren needs to just shut the heck off.


Senator Brown shares with President Barack Obama the distinction of being a recipient of very generous campaign donations from Goldman Sachs, his third-largest contributor behind two Massachusetts mainstays: Boston-based Fidelity and Boston-based Liberty Mutual. If these donations make Senator Brown the “poster child for Goldman Sachs,” then we must think of a comparable epithet for Professor Warren, whose campaign also takes in a great deal of money from Wall Street — or, in the interest of more precise metonymy, from the sewers beneath Wall Street.

She is full of crap



America we want it or not is a corporation, as a corporation the age of career politicians is coming to an end, we citizens had allowed the corporations to run the government, in order to have a successful economy, we and I hate to say this, need CEOs to help do that.

And that is a fact, I hate corporations, I hate big government but that is what we have right now and I don't see anybody including me stopping that.

Because is too late.

And for Trump son in Law he wants him as a economic advisor.

To drain the swap you have to clean the entire congress, and that is a fact.

From everything I've read yesterday and this morning, he might as well go ahead and put the KOCH Brothers and their cronies in every position and get it over with. Hell, just put them a couple of desks in the Oval office. Might as well.

Trump appoints business people you've never heard of: "OMG what an idiot these people aren't qualified for the job!"

Trump appoints well known people who agree with his direction: "OMG he is just appointing establishment shills!"

Going to be a long 4 years for the opposition

The post elections goes through different stages, denial, bashing, finding faults with everything the new president elect does before he is event in the white house and denial again, what is new this election year is the riots, that is against anything this nation stands for.

It happens with all presidents.

She's right. This is just the Corporatocracy out in the open. It just kills me that Trump supporters thought he was "anti-establishment" and would fight for them, for the little guy. And these people will just keep saying that it isn't a corporatocracy, a Good Ol' Boy cabal right up until they absolutely cannot deny the corruption that is making their standard of living poorer and eroding their civil liberties by the year. Even then... Plenty of em' are fundamentally incapable of the self awareness required to admit that they are wrong, and the other side is just going to be stuck in the This Can't Be Happening fog. I think the situation has a reasonable likelihood of progressing further into a fascist state largely because of the human capacity for denial. It'll be like a whole nation of deer caught in the headlights of a tractor trailer. Here We Go!

Welcome to your New World Order ladies and gentleman. Maybe a different flavor from what you had feared, but here we are none-the-less.
