No hotlink in the post there but I was curious enough to google the title and found it here.

Flynn is a new character to me so I won't comment on that half of it but the Bannon defense seemed little more than an unsubstantiated "This is not the deplorable you're looking for" hand wave. Not buying that plucky crusader rebranding even a little bit.

More Hope and Change. How about a Wait and See approach before announcing that the status quo is on its way out?

Mike Pillsbury, Trump advisor on China sounds like he'll have a more constructive approach to China.

Trump advisors discuss foreign policy in the context America and US economic growth. In the Obama admin those were secondary or tertiary and instead they always framed relations as a game of chess to advance the US as a dominant military power and to promote San Francisco and the various billionaire Democratic supporters like pharma, greenpeace, and facebook and protect their overseas operations in trade agreements rather than domestic concerns for ordinary people --here or abroad. It was assumed that billionaire US interests were the US interest... what is good for pharma/facebook is good for America apparently.

Copying Xi's Make China Great Again campaign slogan was brilliance.

Add John Michael Greer as one of the prescient.

Ring-finger capitalism versus Knights of the Templar capitalism?

Bob - both Blyth and Bannon were raising exactly the same issues.

Bob said...

So did Marx.

Bob - exactly - see where I am going!

Where are you going?
There's no reforming capitalism.
