The Alt-Right's Whitening of the White House

By RF Schatten

"Forget the Basket. The truly deplorable ones end up in the Cabinet" ~~~ John Dingell

With White Supremacists running around the halls of the White House and parts of the Cabinet, the List of seriously dangerous characters occupying those sensitive positions shows Trump's famous "Awesome" lack of judgement...and Vladimir Putin's sly smile of jubilation for his foolish little Puppet!

Looking at this Basket of Deplorables...what the Dictionary defines as: "causing or being a subject for censure, reproach, or disapproval; wretched; awful; very bad"...there's absolutely nothing wrong at all by casting Donald Trump, his Political Inner Circle, and his flock of fanatics, into this ever growing "Basket".

Now, you can add 'Perversion' in the growing List of Presidential Appointment freaks...someone the President-Elect can associate quite well, with...Mike Huckabee, that good Christian Ex-Gov, Pastor, and best buddy of Ted "Cat Scratch Fever" Nugent, an admitted super fan of Pedophilia. Pastor Mike publicly admits; "I wish I pretended to be transgender to shower with girls in High School and feel my feminist side".
This dirty little High School kid has become a pretty dirty old man! What is it about all these "good" Christian Pastors, Millionaires, and 13-17-year-old girls? their attraction the fact they are jail-bait? The power of money, affluence, and intimidation weighs heavily on their side.

With an immoral and indecent White House Staff and Executive Cabinet...the "White House Domestic Staff" is going to have a field day with tons of stuff to write, all the tidbits of gossip about 'this' First Family, all in the White House Diary. 'They', are the true unspoken heroes who quietly go about their work and have to put up with all the personal garbage of whatever Family moves into the White House!!...oh! and with this prissy Trump Clan? are they gonna miss the days of Barack!...and even the sometimes sweet memories of George Dubya!

The Trump Circle of Usual Suspects and other Living Things that makes up the Trump Executive Cabinet:
You have a certified true loving Nazi Fascist and a well noted Anti-Semitic, in charge of setting up and maintaining the Trump Presidency's complete political strategy for the next 4 years. Steve Bannon is crazy glued to the Trumpster 24/7 to devilishly whisper his words of wisdom and advice. Yes! advice to a dangerously unprepared foolish man, who is beginning to come out of his trashy campaign trance...and is starting to see the grim reality of an elected Politico, with no idea what to do next!
Former Army Lt. General Mike Flynn, a controversial and rabid Anti-Muslim, Xenophobic, and high maintenance War Hawk, is the President-Elect's National Security Advisor, just to keep us all safe from terrorists sneaking into the country, breaking into our homes and hiding under our beds.
Remember this name; "Richard Spencer"...he's the head of the National Policy Institute, a "White Nationalist" Think Tank"...and founder of the Alternate Right Movement. Check out his intimate association with Breitbart's organization and Bannon, personally.

You have another controversial pick as Attorney General. A man, whom Reagan Senate Republicans blocked from gaining a Federal Judgeship because he was just too Racist for their own taste, and with a bad history when it came to Blacks and Latinos. Alabama Sen. Sam Sessions is going to keep America Safe...and very White. Making sure no blacks...with or without hoodies...walk in a 'presumed' white Neighborhood...and make sure Latinos are not hiding from "La Migra" inside anyone's home. He's the "Man with the Plan"...who originally wanted to build Trump's Wall, way back before Trump ever came up with his idiotic plans.
Like the good old 1950s...the "Commie under every bed" scare tactics all over again! this scenario, the evil bad guys are switched to Terrorist Muslims, just to keep up with the hate of the times, but still the same BS.
If these people are going to keep us safe? my question is; who's going to keep us safe from these people??

Others considered or accepted for a Trump Cabinet post, includes EPA: Myron Ebell, a Director of the "industry-funded" Competitive Enterprise Institute. His work has been funded by America’s biggest Industrial Polluters, including Koch Industries. His job is to break up and completely dissolve the Environmental Protection Agency...of which a large substantial Trump promise to deregulate 70%-80% of all American Industrial, Business, and Financial Regulations nationwide will begin.
You have Anti-Science & Climate Change Deniers, all Corporate Polluters, all looking for Sugar Daddy Donald, and be part of the Cabinet.
Dept. of Interior? Whoever, the final pick's going to be about Corporate Oil and Drilling, Digging, Fracking and selling off America's public lands to Foreign Interests and/or US Corporations.

Yes! a White House with a cast of characters, directly out of a cheap early 1930s bawdy German porn flick! The old GOP Clown Show has ascended into The GOP Freakshow, ready to challenge "Our Democracy"...Fascists, White Supremacists, Anti-Semitics, Pathological Liars, Perverts, Child Predators, Sexual Deviates, Chauvinists, Sexual Degenerates, Homophobes, Gynephobes, Xenophobes, and Indecent Degenerate Hypocrites...Hate, Prejudice, and Fear is their battle cry! Will our 3 Branches of Government ever be the same again? or better yet...will our Democracy survive?

Pastor Mike's next gig? Either Head of Homeland Security or US Ambassador to Israel! And speaking of Israel...with a Trump White House full of Neo-Fascist Nazis, Anti-Semitics, and White Supremacist...keeping normal relations with Bebe will take a good Donald Trump Con Job.
Trump's 2 best friends in the whole wide world of politics...2 people, who are as opposite as oil and vinegar. A Sinister Alliance of Putin, Netanyahu, and Trump?...who will deceive who? and who will back-stab who, first?
Hopping into bed in a political Ménage à Trois with these 2 shrewd evil characters...both, much wiser and much more intelligent than The Donald...can only lead to more trouble for America. But, at 70 years old...Trump has to learn to make his own bed and clean up after himself, as President...just like when he cheats on all his wives!

This Country in all its wisdom, democratically Voted...with deep shame & embarrassment in the World Stage...for a 70-year-old child!!! The future President of the United States of America happens to be totally consumed and guided by his tiny little hands, by his very own Rasputin...a man who publicly compares himself to Satan!
Now, America hangs all the hopes of its 320+ Million inhabitants for the next 4 years on a Psychopath and well noted Pathological Liar...and his very top Guru, who believes he's Satan, re-born! And most of those who know this man personally, pretty much agree!

Steve Bannon must be passionately obsessed with the folklore; "The greatest trick the devil ever pulled was to convince the world he didn't exist". And deep inside his own rotten, fat evil soul, he would love to come out of his dark closet and openly tell the Nation; "Please allow me to introduce myself, I'm a man of wealth and taste"!

America's Entrance into the Age of Idiocracy

By RF Schatten

Has anyone ever had an awful nightmare, and suddenly wake up in a cold sweat and realize you weren't dreaming after all? many felt like that, waking up the morning after? Yes, it's no dream!!...America appears to have entered into the Age of Idiocracy.

We, the People...the good USofA!...have unwillingly become part of a true live Reality TV Election Show, set in a world slowly morphing itself into a ménage of virtual online Internets with its Truths, its Fallacies, the never ending Gossips and Rumors...and all its false innuendos...with a growing influential Twitter CyberWorld, all mixed into an American Society with the most diverse Multi-Cultural, Multi-Ethnic, Multi-Racial, and Multi-Faith demographics all-time in US History.
Those factors, with its wide connectivity of Social Media...the Internet, TV, and Mobile...along with the rest of the world's, we truly have become a "Global Village"! As the Country evolves, the American mind has progressed beyond its Status Quo rooted views and values, and more towards the different Global views of all the alternative ways on how to live your own life. All the Knowledge and Alternative Lifestyles in today's open world are available to you! take advantage before it's all taken away!

Wait! our Rights are taken away? Remember, you are dealing with Donald Trump, his Anti-Semitic and Neo-Fascist following, and the Extreme Far Right's White Nationalism in the Oval Office. Steve Bannon's pick as Trump's Chief Strategist and Advisor was made for a reason! The Far Right's systematic agenda of capturing Authoritarian Rule by using the draconian Politics of Hate, Fear, Bigotry, and Racism to accomplish their means. Trump's horseshit "Wall" tales? Ask any Berliner! just remember; Walls are built, not to keep People out!...but to keep people in!!

America has become a true living Reality The Kardashians and The Apprentice, with all the sleaze, the tackiness, and the false reality of so-called "Reality"shows. Political Service has become a 'rating spectacle', where Political Correctness, Respect, and Decorum has been replaced with indecent remarks, public disrespect of opponents and constituencies , and an extreme overabundance of insults and mockery...especially, mocking the Disabled. Trump has offended millions of every ethnic culture, every race, every lifestyle...and his total lack of compassion and respect for our Men and Women in the military, serving in harm’s way...and our retired Veterans, as well...has been well documented.

It doesn't matter how many pathological lies the American Populace has to listen and endure the next 4 years, how much shoving the blame or passing the buck on really doesn't matter! And all the vulgarity? all the insults? the public disrespect?...the indignities cast upon American Citizens, personally orchestrated by The Donald, himself? doesn't matter! It really doesn't matter how much of an arrogant, self-serving narcissistic thin-skinned braggart, the President-Elect happens to be! Get over it! He's still going to be the 45th President of the United States, regardless how much you feel about it!!

But, be patient, America!...we are dealing with a childish 70 yr. old man whose Twitter Toy was taken away from him...this well noted temperamental adult cry-baby, will be for better or for worse, the future Leader of the Free World! And will have (God help us!) control of his newest play toys...the Red Button and its Launch the tip of his tiny little fingers.

A funny thing happened on the way to 270! Donald Trump's facial expressions didn't seem to appreciate that happy feeling of the moment, when a man or woman finds out they just got elected President...more like an unexpected surprise in his; "Oops, I won?...oh, oh, what the hell did I get into now? and what in the world am I going to do?!?!
The long and winding Road to 270 had its share of detours, and at the finish line, the big questions that arose about Election Night were: "Why did He win? and why did She lose? ‘That’ can be debated till hell freezes over. At the end, in a tight race...Clinton won the Popular Vote and lost the Electoral Vote on shitty campaign errors and a lousy ground game, pushing Trump over the finish line to a small "non-mandated" Victory. The Rural Vote and especially Western Pennsylvania will never be forgotten by the Donkeys next time around!...and also, much more attention has to be made to White Non-College Educated Blue Collar families.
Bernie Sanders would have beaten Trump? He could have beaten any other Republican...but, when Trump went into full Hatemonger mode, the fear, the hatred, and a very Fascist Race/Ethnic knew Bernie was going to make Trump's List.

In today's American Idiocracy, not too many people really understand the difference of Socialism from Communism or any other "isms" for that matter. The "Socialists" & "Communists" tags have become part of Red, White, and Blue Americana! Political Attacks calling your opponent a "Commie" or a "Socialist" becomes a very very loud sound-byte in a Country that's already divided and angered, along with the bigoted reawakening of Anti-Semitic White Fascist Nationalism. On the average, throughout History, America has always tended to lean much more to the Right than to the Left...and that fact, along with Trump's victory...unfortunately, is not going to change in the near future.
We were about 4 years away...but with the setback, it'll probably be 8-10 more years before America accepts Socialism, Democratic Socialism, or in whatever other forms...but, definitely not now, not with the resurgence of very loud White Nationalists.

In my previous post, written 2 days before Election Day; "America's Prohibitive Costs of a Trump Presidency", win or lose, I said to Democrats; "Don't sit around whining, crying, and disillusioned about failed systems and that your candidates lost!!! You're not any different than any other generation!..politics is no different now than it has ever been...if you want to get involved, you play by the rules till you gain enough strength within the Party and then change the rules"!!
You have to win to gain the power to make those major changes you desperately want...casting a Protest Vote is like kissing your own sister, absolutely nothing happens! Ok, now what?!?!
It's a fine and highly honorable act, but pragmatically, what's the stark reality? You'll never accomplish much of anything you want by casting symbolic votes...cause, unless your Party is the Party in Power, and hopefully holds a'll never be able to achieve the legislative agenda for any of your goals!

I also said: "With all due respect, the exact truth of the matter is that neither the 3rd or 4th Party Candidates...or Evan McMullin...are gonna get the Electoral Votes needed to win, and if your conscience and morals still dictate a protest vote?...what Prohibitive Costs will America have to incur with the likes of Trump and White Fascist Nationalism inside a very 'White' House?"

Our next President's agenda includes the tearing down of everything the Democrats built and worked for in the last 50 or 60 years, and now the GOP will have the control a partisan-packed Supreme Court for the next 20-30 years, where all Republican Agendas will get an automatic nod to pass or not pass, depending what our new Führer's wishes are. Vestiges of the German Courts during the 30s and 40s?
Women Rights? Civil Rights? Human Rights?...definitely! 'not' in a Fascist Koch Ruling Class Plutocracy! Do Republicans vote their Conscience? Not necessarily! In all my life, in every single Election I've ever seen...if the GOP has a chance to gain control of an Administration, Republicans never have a problem with 'their' moral conscience. Democrat's famous lack of cojones, again cost them another Election...the Conscientious moral vote? What was the gain? Both 3rd and 4th Party Candidates will likely never be heard of, again...nothing changes, except your fading chance of getting your Bill passed...just like kissing your sister, right.?!?!

We, the People, made our choice...and now we got to live with it! Doesn't matter who voted for him or not...Trump, very much sooner than later, will experience the shocking 'reality' of life as a Politico...when his own voters' backlash kicks his big royal ego in his golden derriere.

Maybe the 1st President-elect ever, that has 2 major Court appearances due, after getting for Multiple Fraud charges involving Trump University, and another one on a Statutory Rape Charge of a 13 year old Girl...and, 75 other cases involving his usual Non-payment lawsuits, all before the end of the year...before he even officially becomes President of the United States on Jan. 20th, 2017. What happens if he's found Guilty? Oh, well! it's going to be 4 wild years of Trumpism and Reality TV America!

It's not as if America is going to put up with 4 years of comedy sketches and jokes about "The Trumpster...Celebrity Apprentice President". It's more like, can America survive 4 years of extremely Prohibitive Costs, all at the American taxpayers' expense, compliments of the antics of President Drumpf?

America's Prohibitive Costs of a Trump Presidency

By RF Schatten

"Idealism is fine, but as it approaches Reality, the costs become prohibitive" ~~~ William F. Buckley, Jr.

The sweet inspiration of youth's Romantic your Conscience is an extremely honorable Idealistic act...but not always necessarily, the right act. More often than none, that passion for youthful Idealism will turn around and slap you right in the kisser...and bite you where the sun doesn't shine! Welcome to Reality!!

The 2016 no other in the history of the United States...are upon us, and it'll be etched in stone. Nothing like this Clown Show has ever been seen in the annals of US Presidential Elections! Actually, at this point in our lives...and of the general elections...we're way beyond a sane description.

I've been an Idealist all my life. But you learn very quickly through the years, through your own experiences...whether they're good or bad learn what a famous ballad of my generation wisely says; "You can't always get what you want"! So life becomes a careful balancing act between keeping your Ideals and your Sanity, and sensibly living in the Reality of this world. You learn to become much more pragmatic, use common sense, and learn the art of the compromise. If you seriously want to make those changes you want so badly, you have work in the system with your adversary and your allies jointly, and convince them along with their respective communities, of your views.
We've been a Nation for 240 years because we've been able to be civilized and compromise with each other...without Bi-Partisanship, we probably wouldn't be here today...our Democracy has remained strong, because We, The People have made sure it remains strong. And always ready to fight anyone who might challenge it!

Movements usually die via lack of enthusiasm. Everyone is always all gung-ho at the moment, but after the elections fade away, most populace movements become disorganized and disintegrate through time. If you want your movement to work, whether you're a Democrat, a Republican, or an Independent...get involved! You got to stay involved, not just during Election season, but throughout the year. Speaking to my fellow Democrats...If you want to change the Democratic Party? it!
Don't sit around whining, crying, and disillusioned about failed systems and that your candidates lost!!! You're not any different than any other generation!..politics is no different now than it has ever been...if you want to get involved, you play by the rules till you gain enough strength within the Party and then change the rules!!
Like Bernie Sanders said; to preserve the movement you gotta mobilize, become civic minded, run for office and work your way through School Boards, City, and State Offices, then Washington...while all along, keeping the flames of the movement alive.

So why is Bernie working now to get Hillary Clinton Elected? Probably cause it's called "Democracy". It's his moral responsibility as a gentleman (and, as a soon to be Registered Democrat) to traditionally campaign for his former opponent and help him or her defeat the Republican Party! That's the way the GOP works, too...but! not this year...not with El Trumpo around!
How many people that support Bernie Sanders and his movement will vote for Clinton? If they follow Bernie, and if they truly believe in Bernie, the most conscientious and respectful thing to do is respectfully follow his wishes and endorsements! At least you have Bernie!...he's not going to lead you wrong!  
When Bobby was murdered, Idealists made the mistake of voting their conscience, after their newfound "hero" who would carry-on RFK's mantle, lost in Chicago. Eugene McCarthy? vanished from the history pages after 1968! return, we were rewarded with Dick Nixon and a full blown Vietnam. Again in 2000, voting our conscience rewarded America with George Dubya, his hunt for Bin Laden in Afghanistan and his hunt for Weapons of Mass Destruction...and Oil Iraq. Also, he rewarded us with his Economic Plan of cutting Taxes across the board, while initiating 2 Wars and causing a major Recession!! it's not worth commenting about it anymore! 
With all due respect, the exact truth of the matter is that neither the 3rd or 4th Party Candidates...or Evan McMullin...are gonna get the Electoral Votes needed to win, and if your conscience and morals still dictate a protest vote?...what prohibitive costs will America have to incur with the likes of Trump and White Fascist Nationalism inside a very 'White' House?

Oprah said it best; "Do you like Democracy or do you want a Demagogue"? That pretty much wraps it all up about this Election!...the vile demagoguery of a closet racist and xenophobe who openly admires Fascism and Authoritarian rule, and is an ardent reader of Mein Kampf. He also believes in breaking off with NATO and joining Putin against our allies!
This indecent degenerate of a human being is a person who truly is, 'challenging' our Democracy! A true serious situation, folks! How is he a danger to our Democracy and American Society? Let me count the ways. Let's start with our Supreme Court: His promise for sleeping with Fundamentalists? abolishing Roe v. Wade. 'His' appointment picks of at least 3 Justices in the next 4 years will be giving his base an All Conservative Court that will agree with Heir Drumpf on every case....anyone read "Judgement at Nuremberg" lately?
Of course. how can we forget his obsession in repealing the 19th Amendment?...hey! what can I say, he's just not very User-Friendly with the opposite sex!...and how about his thoughts for shutting down our Freedom of the Press? Or about the total destruction of our economy...and the rest of the world' using his natural business acumen? And of course, his shallow skin temperament in command of our Military? Finally, let's just end this with "everything he always wanted to know about, but never cared a damn to ask"; Foreign Affairs!
Meanwhile, you have an Adult who actually acts like an adult, a respectful professional with both, the public, and well noted by her loyal opposition...and carries one serious Political Resume. Opposing her is someone who's not just a closet racist and xenophobe, but you can add a Misogynist and a Psychopath, who has an ongoing "Awesome" bromance with Vladimir Putin over the US. He's also willing to use the Red Button as his newest play toy!...oh! and who carries absolutely no experience whatsoever in Domestic Affairs or in the Foreign Affairs Political Theater. I wonder what War and prohibitive costs will Trump incur America with his reward?...and this child-lunatic really does like to push Buttons! What will your conscience say then?...oops?

Rigged or not rigged, the Reality of the matter? No! no! no! you can't rig a Nationwide Election! Only 31 cases of "possible"...just possible...election fraud were found, out of 4 Billion Votes cast between 2000-2014! Besides, most if not all the States still in play are Red why would they rig the election against themselves??
You truly have just two viable choices to pick from; a dangerous lying demagogue, an amateur politico who wants to destroy women rights, minorities, and immigrants, is anti-veterans, and has a childish penchant for using "The Bomb". His direct actions are consistent with favoring a restoration of a White Supremacist America within a Ruling Class Society...the American version of Italian Fascism. And that's no BS!

Or, you have someone with the highest credentials ever presented to the Nation, who will protect our Democracy in every way, shape, and form...whether you like her or not...she 'will' protect the threat to our Democracy and to our Constitution from Trump's very much stated agenda, his radical Pro-Fascist fringe, and all those Non-Educated or Poorly Educated people who the Trumpster dearly loves!
