Americans Think Trump Will Be Worst President Since Nixon - Public Policy Polling

42% of Trump voters think he should be allowed to have a private email server to just 39% who think he shouldn't be allowed to. Maybe cyber security wasn't such a big issue in last year's election after all.

I wonder if game-plan is to cause massive amounts of disruption, which will help keep the opposition permanently on the backfoot.

Meanwhile you can encourage elements of the media to become a Trump bullhorn when they figure out there is good money to be made and ratings to be had spoonfeeding the fox news watchers alternative facts. You can clamp down on any possible source of criticism in the meantime - make them look behind the times, out of touch.

Then Trump will be the one element of relative stability while everyone around him is chasing last weeks flurry of strong-sounding executive orders that will be pretty hard to actually implement or translate into policy - does not matter if they don't make that much sense, they will mostly be last weeks news anyway, and if there is any inkling of one working out, you shout it from the rooftops.

Opposition groups simply won't have time to respond to the blizzard of alternative facts and new executive orders.

Keep the republicans happy: they get to strip the ACA, get rid of environmental regulations, defund planned parenthood, and shrinking government and reducing corporate taxes so they don't mind getting just as confused by this shitstorm as the dems.

it is going to be an interesting and possibly horrifying 100 days.

You mean like this? http://www.smithsonianmag.com/histor...ies-180957324/

Quote:
At his preliminary hearing, the Associated Press reported that Bahr was “nattily clad in gray and smiling pleasantly.” By the time his trial began, he had little reason to smile; in a hefty 37-page statement, he admitted to attending spy school in Germany. His defense was that he'd planned to reveal everything to the U.S. government. But he sad he'd stalled because he was afraid. “Everywhere, no matter where, there are German agents,” he claimed.

Comments like these only fed widespread fears of a supposed “fifth column” of spies and saboteurs that had infiltrated America. U.S. Attorney General Francis Biddle said in 1942 that “every precaution must be taken...to prevent enemy agents slipping across our borders. We already have had experience with them and we know them to be well trained and clever.” The FBI, meanwhile, released propaganda films that bragged about German spies who had been caught. “We have guarded the secrets, given the Army and Navy its striking force in the field,” one film said.
'Mericuh, you haven't changed a bit.

Part of the effect of the pile of tariffs being threatened is pissing people off with inflationary pressure. (There's a disruption right there.) This does wonderful things for rich people with nice fat equity portfolios.

Well, sounds like he already has a state broadcasting arm ready to go. Some ingredients for a putin-style quasi-democracy right there.

It could cause US businesses some headaches, but Trumpochka and Dada Putin think it'll put more pressure and isolation on the EU, which is already facing more than one existential threat. (Trumpochka only thinks about Europe in terms of where he has hotels and golf courses, but Putin does not like the EU at all.)

How many of those 42% that are OK with Trump using a private email server were calling for the incarceration/lynching/out right assassination of Hillary for doing the same?

No, don't answer that. The number is likely even more rage inducing than my imagination.

How many of those 42% know what an email server is let alone what the significance of a private one is? (I'm graciously assuming most of them remember or still use email.)

Versus how many are going along with "MY people say this so it must be true".

Twitler has inadvertently invited British porn star Teresa May (link NSFW) to the White House. I'd question whether this was an accident, but she's a bit old for his standards.

At any rate, this is my current favourite fact.

On a far less amusing note:

"Donald Trump Destroyed My Life" - Lawyers, Guns & Money

Quote:
Egyptian officials said the family had visas and were in transit when they were prevented from boarding the EgyptAir plane to New York’s JFK airport.

Fuad Sharef, 51, and his wife and three children were instead forced to board a flight back to Erbil in Iraq’s semi-autonomous region of Kurdistan, he told AFP.

Trump had on Friday signed a sweeping executive order to suspend refugee arrivals and impose tough controls on travelers from Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen.

“I had sold my house, my car, my furniture. I resigned from work and so did my wife. I took my children out of school,” said Sharef of the family’s preparations to resettle in Nashville, Tennessee under a special immigrant visa.

Back in Erbil, the pharmaceutical industry manager, who had previously worked for an NGO subcontracted by the US aid agency, said he was devastated.

“Donald Trump destroyed my life. My family’s life. I used to think America was a state of institutions but it’s as though it’s a dictatorship,” he said.

“For a decision like this to come out and be implemented immediately, and against whom? Against a valid visa holder.”

“I put my life at risk, working with the Americans at a time that it could have gotten you killed,” he added.
I knew this administration would be horrifying, but I still don't think I was prepared for how horrifying it would be on so many levels.
