Mnuchin appointment cannot be stopped, so…

…lets build our opposition alternative “p’BD’DiA” vehicle and then fight these a hole pukes for real in 2018, `20, and beyond. Stop wondering how bad Trump might or might not be and lets go to the people who voted for him with a legitimate alternative agenda and stop pretending there will be much “common ground” with theirs. We know their true colors, but we have to quit “talking among ourselves” about how well or better we know that to be true and go to every congressional district in the country and field a legitimate progressive populist candidate to present a coherent and broad platform to the people that voted trump and alt-right and convince them they are voting for their own continued descent to the bottom.

A quote from this article by Andrea Germanos:

Mnuchin and his partners bought IndyMac on the condition that the FDIC agree to pay future losses above a certain threshold. They renamed the bank OneWest Bank and, after running it for six years, they sold it last year for a profit, estimated at close to $1.5 billion.

Kevin Stein of the California Reinvestment Coalition, a housing advocacy group, says that profit was made on the backs of suffering California homeowners. “In essence what they did is they bought a foreclosure machine,” he says.

According to the coalition, OneWest foreclosed on more than 36,000 homeowners under Mnuchin. During that time, the FDIC made payments to OneWest totaling more $1 billion. Those payments went to the “billionaire investors of OneWest Bank,” says Stein, “to cover the cost of foreclosing on working-class, everyday, American folks,” many of whom lived in California.
