    Trump, Tribalism and the End of Capitalism:
    -“Rather than voting along class-based lines formed by shared economic interests, both tribalism and racism foster group thinking that cuts
    across class lines. As such, poor white workers are led to believe that they have more in common with their white capitalist bosses than their fellow workers of color.”
    -“Thanks to racism, capitalist tycoons have been able to bamboozle poor working-class whites into supporting their agenda to jettison the moderating influences of progressive taxation and regulation that actually sustains a market economy over time”.
    http://www.aljazeera.com/indepth/opinion/trump-tribalism-american-capitalism-171213074012028.html
    SO playing on hatred and fear GOP says to these whites: Under liberals your taxes will support the deadbeats of society.

    Nick Hanauer (plutocrat who gave the Ted talk “the pitchforks are coming”.)
    “Don’t say I didn’t warn you. And don’t console yourself for a minute that in electing a fellow plutocrat, our side won.
    President Trump isn’t on any side but his own. And his strategy to make America great again by bringing back an old industrial economy
    that no longer exists is as substantive as his early morning tweets about Cable news hosts. After his trickle-down policies—like ripping away heath care from tens of millions of Americans so plutocrats like us can get giant tax cuts, or just enacting giant tax cuts for us, and calling it tax reform—inevitably exacerbate the already extreme inequality that helped sweep him into office, those pitchforks will be angrier than ever.”

      History shows that extreme Inequality, ultra rich hoarding cash is hard to correct. Been corrected by war, rebellion
      and economic collapse as happened in the old world eg Babylon, Ur and Uruk. More recently Teothuacan, Maya,
      Mesopotamia and Ancient Rome polities. So plenty of examples where inequality played a big part.

      Very good, although I disagree that Hillary didn’t speak about the economy, it’s that no one was listening to her due to Trump and the media’s antics.

    People like Orrin Hatch make me sick.
    He pretended to be best friends with Ted Kennedy.
    Pretended to care for CHIPS, Healthcare, Deficits, Debts, Judicial, etc.
    The man is a painted sepulcher. Bad to the hardest core of Hypocrisy.

      Hatch suggested to PBO that Merrick Garland (a Republican) would be heard and voted in as SCOTUS nominee.
      When PBO decided to do just that — Hatch continued with 7 years of illegally & unprecedentedly blocking norms and protocols.

        If Mittens runs for Senate at least he won’t be in the running for POTUS in 2020.

        The DNC should run a strong Democratic candidate in that race even though the seat appears to be a strong Republican stronghold. By November, who knows how many Republicans will be sick and tired of Trump and his illegal, sleazy antics. I wouldn’t assume that Romney will be the Republican candidate. Wouldn’t be surprised if a Tea Party type won that seat which would make it easier for Democrats to run against an extremist.

      Good riddance to trash although he’s probably going to be replaced with someone just as bad. I hope the DNC runs a good Democratic candidate against his Republican successor.

    Utah Republican Orrin Hatch announces he’s retiring after 40 years in Senate

    Hatch, 83, is the most senior Republican in the Senate, and speculation about whether he would retire, clearing the way for Mitt Romney to run for his seat, has escalated in recent weeks.

    As chairman of Senate Finance Committee, Hatch played a key role in passing the tax bill that President Trump signed into law late last month.
    “When the President visited Utah last month, he said I was a fighter. I’ve always been a fighter. I was an amateur boxer in my youth, and I brought that fighting spirit with me to Washington. But every good fighter knows when to hang up the gloves. And for me, that time is soon approaching,” Hatch said in a statement. That’s why, after much prayer and discussion with family and friends, I’ve decided to retire at the end of this term. Although I will miss serving you in the Senate, I look forward to spending more time with family, especially my sweet wife Elaine, whose unwavering love and support made all of this possible.”
    ————

    Now going home to enjoy the multiple fruits of the tax bill. But first, let’s see how Mitt Romney will do.

      GA NCLB.

      Interesting that the person who is 3rd in line for presidency is stepping down.

      Could be an intervention by family and friends over the holiday, or could be a power play within the state of Utah.

      Reminder that last week’s Salt Lake Tribune scathing editorial was from a newspaper owned by the Huntsman family:

      (Twitter thread posted here last week:)

        Is it just me, or has the disconnect between headlines and the body of articles become ridiculous lately? I’m suspicious that news which is uncomfortable for the political/editorial directors is distorted or downplayed by their choice of headlines.

    ///// Folks, remember that WI, PA and NC were contested Senatorial seats. In Sept of ’16, #Dems were leading in those States. Is it any wonder that once again, Mitch McConnell and Paul Ryan were saying No to the United Front against the attacks by Russia & Wikileaks./////

    “In September of 2016, Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson and FBI Director Jim Comey and Homeland Security Advisor Lisa Monaco had a meeting with the Gang of 12 on Capitol Hill,” Heilemann explained. “And they sat with them in the middle of September, in the middle of election and said, ‘Guys, we’re under attack by the Russians. We need to bring together both parties to take a very strong bipartisan position against this Russian intervention in our election.’”

    “And Mitch McConnell and Paul Ryan sat in that room and said, ‘We don’t want any part of this, you’re trying to politicize this, we’re not not going to do anything to help you,’” he said with disgust. “It’s one of the most grossly irresponsible and unpatriotic things that any two Congressional leaders have ever done — certainly in my lifetime.”

            AMK, as always, you are absolutely spot-on! The North Korean people did not vote for the mad man, Kim Jong-Un, to be the leader of their country. By contrast, the voters in the United States, aided by the antiquated, and undemocratic, electoral college system, elected a mad man, Donald Trump, to be the President of the United States. Between the two mad men, drunk with power and with their fingers on their respective nuclear weapons, they may end up destroying most of humanity.
