Trump Provokes Outrage With Plan to Nominate Ex-Walmart Attorney Eugene Scalia as Next Labor Secretary

Originally published at http://www.commondreams.org/news/2019/07/19/trump-provokes-outrage-plan-nominate-ex-walmart-attorney-eugene-scalia-next-labor

How many times are we going to be confronted by the headline -

“TRUMP PROVOKES OUTRAGE” - for this or that pathological act or appointment of some wildly inappropriate scumbag to head or oversee this or that, like this POS? Funny (not really) how their images all show hideously depraved personas.

Although true, that headline seems to be occurring daily now, as the deranged-depraved trump regime apparently try to destroy as much as they possibly can before they are (in my hopes and dreams) beaten within an inch of their lives, then tarred and feathered before spending the rest of their worthless despicable lives on chain-gangs breaking rocks and such! - Or defeated at the polls.

This regime is very like an army burning the crops/fields and salting the earth as they withdraw conquered territory to punish the defeated.

And still there is little but timid, almost silent, non-responses from the DINO entrenched “leader”-ship of fools! Do those now complicit faux opposition figures really believe their own BS and lies? silence IS complicity! Inaction and doing the same thing over and over expecting different results madness - but par for the DINO establishment course! Do they really believe such craven inaction will gain political support? More likely is the fact they are a complicit partner to the destruction of our republic and environment!

Since that answer is very apparently “yes”, the time for a new party seems ripe - as ripe as the stench from both existing party’s apparatchiks and shills. Isn’t there the starving political base to warrant such an attempt, even given a somnambulist public and apparent lack of political will for such a courageous sea-change? If not, we seem to be “loved” without even the courtesy of a reach-around!

Its better to have fought and lost than never to have fought at all!


America has become a Fascist Nation.

" A political philosophy, movement, or regime that exalts nation and often race above the individual and that stands for a centralized autocratic government headed by a dictatorial leader, severe economic and social regimentation, and forcible suppression of opposition." Webster’s Dictionary

If anyone had any doubts that we have become a Nation Of By And For Corporations I think the appointment of Scalia, the son of Far Right Wing Justice Scalia, it is safe to say that the Workers of America have no representation.

These Plantation owners will make certain that the Minimum Wage will be eradicated so Corporations can go back to paying their workers the equivalent of Slave Wages.

Can you imagine putting a Right Wing Corporate Hack in charge of the Department of Labor, a branch of government that is supposed to oversee Workers Rights??


How much more convincing do the people need to see that we live in a corptocracy, not a democracy.


I think I get it now.

Trump is nominating the very best people to work in the interests of the very best people.

Not for the people, for the very best people.

We’ve been living in the Age of Regulatory Capture ever since the US War Department became the Department of Defense, and increasingly since the election of Grandpa Caligula Reagan. Remember James Watt at Interior? Anne Gorsuch Burford at EPA?

Rank and file workers at these agencies are, for the most part, conscientious and sympathetic to their agencies’ missions; it’s the political hacks, who are appointed to leadership positions with the barely disguised aim of neutering entire Cabinet-level departments, whose ideological obstructionism allows corporate crime to wreak havoc across the living Earth.


The appointments are not about who the right person for the Job, they about “How can I piss people off”.

It seems to me the methodology that Trump uses when making one of these appointments is “I want the biggest asshole I can find for this position” . He sure fond of big assholes.

The “Dirty Money” Campaign is based in the Koch Bros. “wish list” and
those of other large companies –

And, as reported in the PBS program, there are members of the GOP who
are too “squishy” to go all the way on the corporate wish list.

This now requires that the GOP will be seeking new candidates even further to the
right than where they are now in order to get the “wish lists” passed.

And even including plans to put control over Town Meetings into authoritarian
hands and to prevent citizens from speaking.

Likely available at your library –
Here’s a search page which will give you some idea of specifics,
but you can also still view the video at PBS

Also –

The Nixon campaign and the George Bush campaign were sponsored by Nazi fascists.
Vatican-Nazi connection was explosive, especially as it applied to the Croatians.
Their connection to Republican electioneering was no minor scandal, no mere footnote to the 1940’s.
The Croation Nazis reached to the very heart of the Republican party’s 1972 campaign to reelect Richard Nixon.
“The Secret War Against the Jews” by Loftus and Aarons 1995

It’s also suggested that this was also the source of some of Nixon’s Watergate money.
The GOP line where the truth was known was that this Nazi money was justified because the
Dem Party was winning because of contributions from American Jews.

Don’t know if anyone knows where ALL of the Nazi money which they could get out of
Germany - some remained, of course – actually went. Obviously, large amount to Allen
Dulles/Switzerland and to Argentina and other areas.

Would also like to add once again –
That before even the end of WWII – by 1943, plans were in place for the CIA
and new operations to be run out of it – Mockingbird, Paperclip and Gladio.

See: Operation Mockingbird — scroll down to “History” — which was being written two years before the end of WWII.

See: Operation Paperclip — Wiki’s figures are low — at the minimum 64,000+ which included families but more likely 200,000 according to Kay Griggs/YouTube.

See: Operation Gladio — US program to keep right wing governments in place in the countries over which they had control after WWII — Germany, Japan, Italy. In Italy, US actually resurrected the Mafia in order to ensure the plan would be carried out.



He does do this deliberately. The Trumpsters can’t seem to figure out that these hateful decisions harm them too.


I’m guessing that Pizzela wasn’t enough of a scumbag for rump’s liking.

America Inc, a private tyranny.


And all this time right wingers have been trying to claim that progressives have been voting against their own interests. That the reality is the opposite should be broadcasted everywhere! Whoever the Dems nominate had better tirelessly point that fact out. If they don’t, they would be wasting an opportunity.


I still think there is some provision that allows for some sort of payoff for being a part of the administration. There will have been hundreds by the time he leaves.

If we had congress critters that were not so cowardly, we would have a truth squad at trump’s talks and call him out for his continuous lying. He will say, no it’s true. Then the non-cowards would double down and trump would storm off.
That’s the way it should go down EVERY day.

The payoff seems to be never having to look for a overpriced job in the future. Their service will be recorded the gop playbook, and they will be rewarded handsomely in the future. The gop, just like secret societies, takes care of their own.

So many scary things Recon, you just added to the list.
