No, Rubio is 100% neocon, and always has been.  He legit loves Bolton (and Cheney,and Rumsfeld, and Wolfowitz, and Kristol, and all the rest that got us into the Iraq debacle).

Rubio is a modern medical marvel. Most people can't survive after having their spine removed.

Kinda the "miscellaneous Trump news" thread.  

 

The US needs to borrow almost $300 billion this week


 

Quote

 

Uncle Sam needs to borrow a ton of money this week — in the middle of a fight with its biggest creditor.
The United States plans to sell about $294 billion of debt, according to the Treasury Department. That's the highest for a week since the record set during the 2008 financial crisis.  

 

Federal revenue is declining because of President Trump's tax cuts, so the government needs to borrow more to make ends meet. At the same time, Washington's borrowing costs have climbed rapidly in recent months.  

 

"The amount of debt coming on the market this week is extremely large," said Rick Rieder, global chief investment officer of fixed income at BlackRock, the world's largest asset manager.

 

 

I'd say that the tone feels like it's trying to magnify things somewhat.  But the underlying facts are still relevant.

Again the president goes after a private business that hasn't broken any laws. A business that followed the American dream and took advantage of new technology to build a better mousetrap. Amazon succeeds for obvious reasons.  if the **** is about sales taxes,  take your tax breaks on your non-job creating pig-class friends and cry me a river. You could have a nice hold on the employees of this country, except for the last 35 years you've been tilting the cash into your pockets, selling our manufacturing jobs off to cheap overseas labor, driving down American wages, and overpricing the shoddy products that come back. Now you want to cry that people are using a service that fits the schedule they have to keep.

 

Today's "conservative" has no idea what they stand for. They just scream whatever they're told, no matter how deeply it cuts into the principles of conservatism.

Not a single ounce of respect left for them. 

 

Amazon is a success for the right reasons. If company's can't compete,, well..  that's just too bad, isn't it?

 

Donald Trump has no idea what it is to be an actual American. None. He has no American values at all, except gimme gimme gimme.

And the same goes for his support.

Re: Trump and Amazon...

 

Don't forget, too, that Jeff Bezos owns the Washington Post.

 

Going after Amazon probably plays well with his base

Seriously, how many of Trump's recent appointees have come over from Fox News?

 

- Larry Kudlow, who replaced Gary Cohn as director of the National Economic Council.

 

- John Bolton went from Fox News contributor to new National Security Advisor.

 

- Joseph DiGenova and his wife Victoria Toensing were frequent Fox talking heads, now lead his legal team.

 

-Heather Nauert, former Fox & Friends anchor, is an undersecretary at the State Department.

 

Not to mention:

 

- Pete Hegseth, Fox & Friends weekend anchor, has been floated as the next Secretary of Veterans Affairs.

 

- Eric Bolling, Fox News anchor, tweeted yesterday " I’d work for a single US $1 to help drain the swamp, plug the leaks, build the wall with Pesos, lower taxes, build infrastructure, protect #2A and save some parents from the scourge of opioids,"

 

- Homer Simpson, longtime Fox personality, may be appointed by Trump as Director of the Nuclear Regulatory Commission.

 

 

And now, meet Caroline Sunshine:

Sunshine has been hired by the Trump White House Press Office as a press assistant.  She is best known for her role as "Tinka Hessenheffer" on the Disney Channel's "Shake It Up," a show about teen dancers that ran from 2010 to 2013. Sunshine is 22 years old, 7 years younger than Hope Hicks.

 

Good to see Trump is expanding the talent pool beyond Fox News to include The Disney Channel.

I think Trump's bloated spending bill, which dwarfs Obama's infrastructure stimulus that the GOP denounced as wasteful and extravagant, will do more damage than the tax bill, but neither is a prudent move when the economy is near full employment.

I think his base uses Amazon quite a bit.

 

Trump's jealous of Bezos because Bezos is making real money and is probably worth more than Trump, who is highly leveraged and we know this because Trump won't release his tax returns and his FEC filed financial statements are probably not correct, to be kind.
