So much to cull through…

…and perhaps, nay nay most likely, so little time…http://www.commondreams.org/news/2016/11/30/chilling-professor-watchlist-aims-expose-leftist-educators

http://www.commondreams.org/views/2016/11/30/foreclosure-king-treasury on the selection of Steve Mnuchin, currently the head of Dune Capital, which bought up copious foreclosed properties after the 2008 meltdown, and he apparently had a hand in forcing and or greasing the wheels of many foreclosures prior to that. Dune Capital has been described as the nations biggest landlord.
A prescient quote from this article by Sarah Anderson, who directs the Global Economy Project of the Institute for Policy Studies, a progressive multi-issue think tank, in Washington DC.

In his response to Trump’s choice, Public Citizen President Robert Weissman zeroed in on the president-elect’s hypocrisy. Just this past August, Weissman pointed out, Trump declared that “We can’t fix a rigged system by relying on the people who rigged it in the first place.”

By tapping Mnuchin for Treasury, Weissman says it’s obvious that we’ve been had. “Say goodbye to the candidate who promised to fix a rigged economic and political system. And say hello to the incoming president intent on turning over the machinery of government to the corporate elite against whom he railed just a few short months ago.”
