|Waiting For An Outside Line|
Is that why he's so oblivious to public opinion? Who cut it off?
All Bill Information (Except Text) for H.R.841 - To prohibit the appropriation of funds to the Executive Office of the President until the restoration of the White House phone-in comment line.
More info here, actually loads of info here as these MFs are moving faster than the speed of light to change the rules.
More than one bill has been introduced to RELOCATE EACH EXECUTIVE AGENCY HEAD OFFICE OUTSIDE DC. AND FOR OTHER PURPOSES? I said, QUOI?
I mean, who can keep up? Where's the media? Does anyone think this is business as usual? MOVE THE GOVERNMENT OUTSIDE THE DC METRO AREA? WHY on earth would someone want to do that??
17. H.R.826 — 115th Congress (2017-2018)To require the head of each executive agency to relocate such agency outside of the Washington, D.C., metropolitan area, and for other purposes.
The Washington Power Elite is none too happy about the new "administration" either, from today's Alternet :
"The opposition to Trump is spilling across partisan and ideological boundaries as the realization grows that the awesome power of the U.S. government, its mass surveillance and law enforcement agencies and its nuclear arsenal, is now controlled by a band of amateur renegades who are out to dismantle the American state."
Wull ... yeah.
Reading further:“Lenin wanted to destroy the state, and that’s my goal too,” Bannon told historian Ron Radosh. “I want to bring everything crashing down, and destroy all of today’s establishment."
This isn't just about the right-wing Christian ideological keep- women- in- their- place agenda. Those "old reliable" Republicans, not Tea Partiers, like McCain and Graham, who might have stood up for something over the last two weeks, have all decided it's time to cash in, to help these nihilists don the masks of doublespeak as though butter wouldn't melt in their mouths and rob the US Treasury with the help of their corporate owners and high-tail it to Bali-Hai with their bags of loot and some underage Slovenian runaways. Trump may be a blowhard, but does anyone still doubt Bannon is serious? The entire Republican party has been dog whistling this tune since Reagan. Now it's a full-fledged opera.
4 out of 10 Americans polled believe Trump should be impeached. I guess that's fine, but Bannon isn't going anywhere, and if Mike Pence, Paul Ryan and the rest of them are too cowardly and self-serving to stand up to this hijacking now, there's no chance their being in charge would make an iota of difference.
People like to say that we can vote him out in four years. I wish I could believe that, but it doesn't seem likely. We'll be lucky if there's anything to salvage in two.
