'Why Not Freddy Krueger?' Trump Picks Big Pharma Exec to Head HHS

Jake Johnson, staff writer

"Just when you think it can't get anymore disgraceful. Pity the poor people who need medication and safety—that would be all of us."

The job of the U.S. government should be to protect the welfare and represent the best interests of the American (U.S.) public. This is an example of subversion of that duty. Now the question is - is this subversion and act of treason against the constitution and the American public? If a leader intentionally does things to subvert to general welfare and best interests of the public which he or she is supposed to represent - then, to me, that is an act of treason.

Couldn’t be more obvious that corporations control our government/White House/Congress –

and our elections …

Let’s just get a corporate flag designed and raise it up there and be honest about it.


#4

I suggest the theme should be a dollar sign dripping blood.


#5

Edited. What can say to this. Eli Lilly must have the President’s confidence to head our health services.


#6

The old skull and crossed bones would be good too. A favorite of many pirates.


#7

Putting this fox in the hen house is EXACTLY why we have to remove Donald J. Trump from the Presidency NOW, anyway possible. I don’t know how nor do I even care one fucking iota anymore how it is done. All I know is that it must be done.


#8

Hummm, what if it was the other way around. Trump is just an unethical failed businessman.


#9

Given the history of the USA–genocide and slavery–that was based on theft of the wealth, labor, land, and lives of others I look upon the current flag as this symbol.

The answer in my mind is a resounding YES! "The commonsense definition of treason is “betrayal of country,” and the trump regime is based on just such destructive actions in word and deed!

Some other peoples thoughts on duty of (elected) officials to the people and nation (one and the same), The Common Good, and “promoting the General welfare”… …

"Government is instituted for the common good; for the protection, safety, prosperity and happiness of the people; and not for the profit, honor, or private interest of any one man, family, or class of men: Therefore the people alone have an incontestable, unalienable, and indefeasible right to institute government; and to reform, alter, or totally change the same, when their protection, safety, prosperity and happiness require it. - John Adams

We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America." - Preamble, US Constitution (“just a goddamned piece of paper” - GWB)

“The liberty of a democracy is not safe if the people tolerate the growth of private power to a point where it comes stronger than their democratic state itself. That, in its essence, is fascism — ownership of government by an individual, by a group, or any controlling private power.” – Franklin D. Roosevelt

Guild –

Painful … strikes at the heart so recognizable.


#12

But something went wrong there cause Our Founders actually created an
Elite Patriarchy.


#13

How is this different from Obama choosing Liz Fowler to head up the ACA implementation? As the saying goes, second verse same as the first.


#14

Or a beheaded bald eagle with blood pouring out of its neck that is pooling on the WH steps.


#15

Not DJT nor any of his cabinet secretaries or other anointees (emperor’s anoint) give a damn about the Constitution, the government, the nation, our democracy or the world at large, They only see ways to make themselves and their peers more wealth, aggregate to plan strategies to wrest total control from the people (seen as lazy,hopeless, wastrel peasants always with their hands out begging), and could care less about the destruction left in their wake (unless it sullies or adversely impacts their neighborhoods, vacation haunts, and private get-aways).


#16

Wellpoint paid her well for the two years she was there and now she is eating out of the Johnson and Johnson trough. The can smell the money and will trample and cast aside any one in their way to grab it.


#17

You folks really need to hire a proofreader.

The email blurb linking to this article:
“In a move critics said puts the lie to President Donald Trump’s expressed commitment to lowering drug prices and taking on the power of the pharmaceutical industry, Trump on Monday announced that he has chosen Big Pharma executive Alex Azar to head the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), where he will deeply involved in regulating the industry he has worked for over the last decade.”

1 “be” or not 1 be?

Since the Constitution when Our Founders actually created an Elite Patriarchy,
endowed them with land grants – gave them immense influence and control
over our people’s government, the nation’s wealth and natural resources …
they have stolen from the American public/commonwealth.

Not to mention saving and supporting the system of Slavery for benefit of Elites
and Genocide versus 112 million native people here while stealing their land.

Even that wasn’t enough for them … stealing is cumbersome when you have to
go around the public to grab the dough.

Soon they will have total control of government …
