WaPo: Donald Trump’s Many Businesses Set To Be Overseen By Trump Appointees At Federal Agencies

The Washington Post reports:

Airplanes belonging to Donald Trump’s businesses will be inspected over the next four years by employees of the Federal Aviation Administration that he will lead. Disputes over Trump’s trademark registrations could be reviewed by judges appointed by his hand-picked commerce secretary.

His Department of Housing and Urban Development could reverse its past opposition to a potentially lucrative sale of a large subsidized housing complex in New York partly owned by the president-elect. And Trump’s Environmental Protection Agency will have the power to roll back clean-water rules he and other golf course owners have said are harmful to their industry.

When Trump takes office on Friday, he will assume control of a federal bureaucracy with enormous power to bolster nearly every corner of his real estate, licensing and merchandising empire — and enhance his personal fortune.

At a minimum, according to ethics experts, government officials tasked with making decisions affecting Trump businesses could feel pressure to keep the boss happy. At worse, experts say, Trump or his allies could abuse their power to sway decision-makers.

“We are going into an inauguration in a completely unprecedented situation,” said Trevor Potter, who advised several GOP presidential campaigns and served as chair of the Federal Election Commission.

    And as soon as this happens, US businesses may be able to sue Trump for having an unfair competitive advantage.

        Lawyers throughout the country are organizing to prepare to fight what Trump may do. Here is an encouraging story:

        How will Prez-Reject Trump get anything done in office, while fighting off all these lawsuits and investigations? Can’t you just envision him trying to use the FBI to help him destroy companies suing him…at his own peril?

        • bambinoitaliano

          Trump never does anything. His riglected position will not change with or without the law suits.

      • TampaDink

        None, of course. It isn’t as if he’s using a private email server.

    • another_steve

      Absolutely. I made a similar point down-thread before seeing your comment, Larry.

      Good old U.S. Capitalism and the power of the free market are the greatest insurance we have when it comes to not falling into the abyss.

      We see it everyday: Celebrities not performing at the orange fascist’s coronation for fear of losing income (fear of losing demand). Businesses boycotting North Carolina (withholding supply) in order to reap greater gain (the love and admiration of the larger fair-minded consumer base).

      Free market dynamics to the rescue.

    • Buford

      Yep – that’s where I think the real ‘conflict of interest’ legal traction lies. Competitors can sue claiming real damages from unfair competition.

    Trump should give up his business interests or step down. That’s all there’s to say.

    • ColdCountry

      But he IS giving them up, didn’t you see that yuge stack of (empty) file folders?

      • Johnny Wyeknot

    I suspect there will be a lot of lawsuits.

      Do they all share the same mother (… or father)? Barron just looks much more like Ivanka than the other siblings.

        Those 3 are all products of his first marriage, so yeah, their mom is Ivana. Tiffany is the love child* of him & Marla Maples.
        *Love child, in that they married after she was born.

    • PickyPecker

      No, it’s not legal. But I expect the GOP controlled Congress and Senate to take as much action on this as they did on the election shenanigans that put him there.

    • jimbo65

      This whole thing makes me sick. The GOP don’t give a shit that he’ll basically plunder the country. It’s ok as long as they can ram through their agenda, “see” the light, then impeach him, put Mike fucking Pence in, and everyone lives happily ever after. Fuckers.

  • MikeBx2

    As soon as there’s clear and convincing evidence of illegalities, Don the Con will be finished. My prediction is less than a year.

    • TampaDink

      According to Richard Nixon, when the president does it, it isn’t illegal. Look how well that (eventually) worked out for him.

      • MikeBx2

        Exactly. Repubs know that impeaching Nixon did them very little harm as long as they were on the right side when the facts came out. They only suffered through 4 years of a Dem administration. 12 years of a GOP White House followed. They will turn on Trump eventually.

        • TampaDink

          The sooner, the better.

        • John30013

          I hope you’re right—and you might be. Since most GOP Congresscritters are in safe districts, it might actually embolden them to hold Trump accountable (even if their local electorate supports Trump). Right now, the GOP in Congress are riding Trump’s electoral coattails, and he’s largely toeing their legislative line. But they have no love for him, nor he for them. Theirs is a marriage of convenience, so there’s hope they will do the right thing once Trump’s excesses become too great to ignore.

          • MikeBx2

            Agree. And most would easily support a President Pence.

      • BobSF_94117

        The man didn’t die in prison like he should have. Turned out pretty well, I’d say.

        • TampaDink

          That was just another one of Gerald Ford’s many missteps. He fell down an awful lot.

      We have the filibuster (MAYBE), maybe the CURRENT Supreme Court (but who knows about Kennedy?) and public PRESSURE.

    • KnownDonorDad

      Then we get President Pence, and while the notion makes me cringe, Pence doesn’t have the teflon reality show shield that Trump has, and all the nasty Dominionist traits he has will get proper scrutiny.

      • OdieDenCO

        I don’t see how pence could survive donny’s impeachment on colluding with russia. plausible deny ability he does not have.

        • KnownDonorDad

          That’s a good point. Looks like Paul Ryan gets to be president after all.

          • bzrd

When the occasion proper for it shall arrive, I shall endeavor to express the high sense I entertain of this distinguished honor, and of the confidence which has been reposed in me by the people of united America.

        Previous to the execution of any official act of the President the Constitution requires an oath of office. This oath I am now about to take, and in your presence: That if it shall be found during my administration of the Government I have in any instance violated willingly or knowingly the injunctions thereof, I may (besides incurring constitutional punishment) be subject to the upbraidings of all who are now witnesses of the present solemn ceremony.

      • Lars Littlefield

        Oh, I can think of lots of things they could report about the attack. Similarly, the press and government could have plastered the papers with the 15+ killed on July 17, 2016, in Xalapa. Yet, not a word until months later foreign journalists in cahoots with local LGBT movers and shakers brought it to light. Has the shooter(s) been caught? Is it a hate crime or a drug war thingy? ¿Quién sabe?

        • TuuxKabin

          I contacted a friend in Mérida this morning when I put the link in to gaymex1 here, who lives in the Yucatan. Friend in Mérida replied, about 8:45AM that four arrests were made, at that time no known deaths, and nine wounded with a press conference scheduled for 9AM. Her impression was that it was drug related, as most shootings are. That she didn’t think it was a target on the LGBTQ community, that so many clubs at Playa are well mixed. The 15+ killed in Jalapa was reported in http://www.latintimes.com some time later, as you mention, after foreign journalists and local LGBTQ ‘movers and shakers’ applied som pressure with their thumbs. What the Mexican government allows the press to do and what should be done don’t coincide. A long time tragic fact of life.

          • Todd20036

            I don’t think he’s a genuine Nazi. But he enables them.

            He’s so fixated on himself, that he really doesn’t care how much bigotry his inner circle spouts, so long as they praise Trump occasionally and tell him how wonderful he is.

          • Cuberly

            Had a bit of a WTF moment. If he thinks capability is innate then how the hell can he explain Trump University? Of course it was a masturbatory ego-edging exercise on his part. That and the $$ of course.

            He kinda craps all over the people that signed up for TU when he espouses this lineage bs. Sheesh, can only imagine the tally of people he’s exploited and discarded along the way.

            Woe to anyone that thinks Trump doesn’t cycle through the people around him like an asthmatic with a box of kleenex. But I guess they provide cover for his ineptitude.

          Knowing how Donnie works, I bet there’s a NDA for Marla as well. Maybe she’ll write/release a book while Donnie’s prez’ing?

          • Cuberly

            Is there a legal reason for him to wait?

          • zhera

            NDA, apparently. but as trumPee becomes a public person the agreement isn’t valid. At least that’s what he says.

      Of course he doesn’t like heroes. He’ll never be one and he knows it. Heroes are not selfish bastards. Heroes are willing to sacrifice themselves for others, for the greater good. trumPee cannot even compute such an idea.

      • Cuberly

        I wonder if he knows he’s a fucking idiot. Seriously.

        • zhera

          He doesn’t. It takes a certain level of non-stupid to realize that one is indeed stupid. He’s far below that level.

    Will Trump have the power to abolish The United States Constitution?

    • Bared Bear

      I’m sure he’ll, at the very least, get it good and soggy by peeing on it every chance that he gets.

    • Only unless someone has the backbone to stop him. His entire philosophy is Nixon writ on a galactic scale: He feels nothing he does is by definition illegal unless someone stops him.

      Frankly, what’s really going on here is he’s not formally abolishing the Constitution — or our nation’s system of laws. He’s just ignoring them.

      That the Republican party and its leaders have no problem with this shows they feel exactly the same way.

      America, as a democratic republic, is dead. We now have a corrupt autocratic oligarchy with most of the features of full-on fascism in place.

        He’s always been able to pass the buck onto other people.

    Off-Topic (but related):

    The Chicago Cubs, 2016 World Series Champions, visited the White House *today*. The news there? [WS Champs always visit the White House). I’ve never seen WS Champs visit the White House in the winter! They ALWAYS visit during the following baseball season (usually when the team is playing in or near DC). Hmmm, why could the Cubs be visiting in winter, hmmm? * 😉

    * No, it’s not because Obama’s from Chicago. The Prez is a WHITE SOX fan (South Side, to the Cubs’ North Side), and ChiSox and Cubs fans usually don’t mix!

    • DaddyRay

      While he is a White Sox fan, he quickly congratulated the Cubs. Many White Sox fans we happy for the Cubs give how historic the win was. Almost all players are going with the exception of two I think due to “personal conflicts”.

      I think you should make sure you have proof they voted for him so when they later deny it out of shame, you can wave it in their face going “Don’t lie, you’re just digging yourself a bigger hole.” You can add the words “With the Almighty” if they are into Jeebus.

      Also emphasize how much Putin is an ex-KGB head and is totally puppeting the hell out of Trump to quash the communism garbage.

      It’s incredible to me that even when organized communism and communists are almost non-existent in the US, it and they still loom large in the right-wing imagination.

    “I have literally stopped being surprised. I do admit to starting and ending each day with a certain amount of dread at what might possibly come next. I think that is part of the point of the Trump tactics. So I do my best to stay as positive and focused as I can. It is amazing how difficult that can be at times.”

    “Turns out Trump is the most adept terrorist of all.”

    It’s in the comments on a story about Anonymous threatening Trump:

      I imagine Serbia’s train stunt was done at the request of the Kremlin. The Russians want a new Balkan war to erupt before Montenegro joins NATO, because if that happens there will be no “neutral” ports through which Russia can send mercenaries and weapons to their belligerent ally.

          • I never knew he wrote violin concertos! Did Bach ever write anything like a symphony? Thanks for enlightening me 🙂

          • billbear1961

            Yes, 3 violin concertos that are extant, and some of the keyboard concertos were probably violin concertos to start with (others for oboe, one for oboe and violin). The original violin versions (of the keyboard concerti) have been lost, but they’ve been “reconstructed,” “transcribed.”

            This concerto for 3 harpsichords (BWV 1064–it’s been mislabelled 1063 here) has been reworked for violins. They think it began as a concerto for 3 violins, but that original version has been lost. It survives as a concerto for 3 harpsichords.

            The first movement:

            https://youtu.be/ZbsTPsIx_D0?t=30s

            There’s no more GLORIOUS piece of orchestral music by J.S. Bach, I think.

          • billbear1961

            Symphonies in OUR sense of the word, no. But he composed sinfonias–orchestral overtures–to introduce many of the cantatas, and some of his sonatas resemble mini symphonies, for small groups of instruments.

            I think the symphony grew out of the sonata form. But you’ll need an EXPERT to explain that.

            If you’ve never read this article before, I think you’ll enjoy it, Eddi.

        A suggestion I saw: if you have cable or satellite, leave your TVs on — on other channels. (They can be muted.) That’ll reduce the percentage of viewers who are watching the inauguration, and that’ll insult tRump’s ego more than people simply not watching TV.

        (If your TV is connected to your cable or satellite box by an HDMI cable, or if you use a cable card, your service provider may be able to tell whether your TV is on or off. Corrections welcome.)

        On March 26, 1841, Harrison became ill with a cold.
        According to the prevailing medical misconception of that time, his
        illness was believed to be caused by the bad weather at his
        inauguration; however, Harrison’s illness did not arise until more than three weeks after the event. The cold worsened, rapidly turning to pneumonia and pleurisy. Harrison tried to rest in the White House, but could not find a quiet room because of the steady crowd of office seekers. His extremely busy social schedule also made rest time scarce.

        The problem exhibits many dimensions of complexity and now is not the time to let emotion get the best of us. We will need clear heads to work through this very complex situation.

          Yes, it is incredibly complex, but I think it’s crystal clear we’ll be dealing with an unbelievably CORRUPT regime, backed up by a party which will help Trump and his henchmen BETRAY democracy, at home and abroad.

          I am TERRIFIED, David, but also disgusted and FURIOUS. I refuse to consent to this OBSCENITY.

Take heart and center yourself. Avoid allowing the bad guys from getting to you psychologically and pull offsides.

The big difference is that reagan did not work with iran to hold the hostages till he was inaugurated! Second , he didn’t question his guest about what trump would have done if he lost and then found out that the russians were helping Hillary !

          During the primaries I remember hearing an interview with a trump suppporter were the woman they interviewed said Trump had convinced her of his godliness. She was convinced Trump would return the bible to the schools and reverse the moral decay that Obama had wrought.

          The NPR interviewer tried to sound objective after hearing that level of cray cray. He calmly asked her if that was her primary reason for voting for Trump. She said yes.

          We’re supposed to feel…..sorry for this person? It’s our fault she’s so high on the jebus she doesn’t even have a reality based reason for voting for him?

          • Skeptical_Inquirer

            I was listening to NPR and this different woman kept going on and on about how she wasn’t a hateful person because she voted for Trump.

            Some people just want to believe in something even when the facts don’t comply with their wishes. I can’t feel sorry for her either because her actions don’t just hurt herself but they hurt others. It’s pretty much a choice to make up shit to herself to keep her self-image at the cost of others rather than do the very minimum of saying that she knowingly chose a filthy pig for selfish reasons.

            Actually (though this is probably unintentional, on this “artist’s” part) the skull is in keeping w/ a rich tradition of religious art, the Memento Mori (“Remember that you shall die”).

            Sometimes they are obviously placed, sometimes they are supposed to depict an actual skull that the person (usually a saint, especially a learned one like Jerome or Thomas Aquinas) shown had in their study, and sometimes they’re stuck as a sort of wry comment on the scene (e.g., if it’s showing S-I-N!) Whether common debauchery, or the lives of the rich&privileged. EVERYBODY DIES, says the artist. And, if you believe that’s followed by some kind of judgment or recompense (or karma), consider!

          • Bryan

            Memento Mori was pretty much where my mind was basically for all the reasons you listed, I’m curious if he actually ‘knew’ what skulls in quasi-religious paintings are supposed to represent or if he was thinking “Ooh, a skull, that’s so metal and evil looking, I want that in there with my heroin-shootin’ druggy.”

      You’ll all be shocked that this brave young man was {wait for it} gay.

      The young protester who captured the nature of the 60s protest movement
      turned out to be an 18 years old actor, George Edgerly Harris III, from
      New York on his way to California. He would later reveal that he was gay
      and took the stage name, Hibiscus. He co-founded a far-out,
      psychedelic, gay-themed cross dressing troupe called The Cockettes.
      His life would be captured in the 2002 film of the same name made by
      David Weissman. Hibiscus died an early victim of the AIDS epidemic that
      struck the West coast gay community.

      RIP, George.

        • Palm Beach County was progressive enough to offer their own health care plan (that did not include Cancer coverage) before 2013 for a reasonable charge. I think we were the only county in Florida that offered one, it kept people outside of the emergency rooms — and even with this you had big problems getting specialist appointments with ENT doctors for example. Palm Beach is a very affluent county for this part of the Country— not sure if local solutions like ours can step in and fill the gap.

      Thing is, if they knew he worked for BuzzFeed, the Drumpfensturmers would attack him even if they believed he was straight.

    So people are having trouble selling tickets to the inauguration. Scalpers are losing money trying to sell tickets. Yossi Rosenberg is having trouble selling tickets to the inauguration, even as far as going to right-wing supremacist sites to try and sell the tickets, someone offered him 200$ for both, if he doesn’t sell them he said he might as well go.

    I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but i doubt white supremacists would purchase anything from a man named Yossi Rosenberg.

    • KnownDonorDad

      GOOD! Truly, this is the only thing that can possibly block a Trump Nominee. Look back at the handful of cabinet appointments that didn’t go through – they had hired an undocumented worker as a nanny or some such, it had nothing to do with their viewpoints. Thus, we’ll get people like Jeff Sessions in high positions of power. Don’t forget, they got Al Capone for tax evasion….

  • Skeptical_Inquirer

    Just out of curiosity, have any of you considered running for local office?

    • DaddyRay

      No, I am terrified of public speaking and would never want to deal with the public scrutiny. To me being a politician involves some sort of narcissism and that is just not in my nature.

      • Cuberly

        Awww, I bet you’re super cute on a stage. 😉

        Actually, agreed. I can’t stomach public speaking. Hell I have a slight case of agoraphobia. Then there’s the ability to think on ones feet. Respond to confrontational or challenges on the fly. That takes a talent I definitely do NOT possess.

        • fuzzybits

          I think you do pretty good around these digs.

          • Cuberly

            Oh hush now….you kidder you. (blush)

        • DaddyRay

          I hate confrontation and get very embarrassed to sing my own praises. That being said I am glad there are people who are willing to put themselves out there and are thoughtful of others which is why I love President Obama so much.

          • Cuberly

            Agreed. He has the ability to make it look effortless. Even though I bet, on the inside, he’s had more than one instance of WTF?

            Personally I do best behind the scenes. I can sing my praises by just putting my head down and working my ass off…lol…

      I have friends that have run. One even made it to a city supervisor position. But, for me, nope….no way. I’m horrible at public speaking, among other things.

    • ByronK

      I have but came to the conclusion that it would just hasten my death by stress. I’m too plain-spoken and stupidity drives me insane.

      • Skeptical_Inquirer

        I’m not demanding anybody do it since you have to deal with a lot of people (and I’m introverted so I don’t care for all the kissing babies and glad handling either) and a lot of people are awful.

        I heard Bill Clinton seemed to really enjoy chatting people up and one person I know who actually briefly met him said that he could make you feel his total focus on you while talking to you but in a good way.

        Though I have no way of how Ted Cruz managed to be elected since he even repels his own kids.

    • fuzzybits

      Only if I could move to KY. (temporarily) hold the office of clerk, and deny Kim Davis her next marriage. 😛

    • Cuberly

      (Putting on my raised eyebrow queen face) Have you? 😉

      • Skeptical_Inquirer

        There are a few articles on Slate right now urging people to run if they find the current batch to really suck. I also figure it might help the Dems fill some of their local benches.

        Sadly, I have the charisma of a potato and zero patience.

        • Cuberly

          Pomme frites with an attitude sounds pretty wily if you ask me. 😉

          But yeah I hear ya. The minute you enter public life, in the era of social media no less, (oy) sorta takes an ego and spine of steel.

    • MΩebym

      No. I’m a little oversensitive, and criticism of the kind that politicians receive would cause me to suffer nervous breakdowns. Plus, I don’t have the natural charisma and good speaking ability.

      My dad says he’d consider doing it once he returns to the country for good. (He’s a Democrat, thankfully.)

        • DaddyRay

          I saw here a couple of days ago for the first time in a while – she has been on Twitter a lot

          • DaddyRay

            @Str8Grandmother is her name on twitter

          • djcoastermark

            Alas, I don’t do that twitter thing.:-(

          • DaddyRay

            I signed up when it first came out but only because I wanted to see what it was about. I have not tweeted and set my account up to keep my tweets private. I do not have any followers so even if I did tweet something nobody would see it

          • TimCA

            I opened up a Twitter account years ago in order to send tweets to a New York State legislator. I did so after Mr. Jervis reported here on JMG that the politician was taking into account the tweets he was receiving in favor and against marriage equality in New York State. I never used the account again.

          • DaddyRay
        • Mike_in_the_Tundra

          She was here yesterday.

        • Cuberly

          She’s just as active as ever. She tweets regularly.

  • That_Looks_Delicious

    OT – New Gallup poll out today shows the percentage of Americans who identify as LGBT has increased again.

    Although I still think the real number is somewhat higher, probably pretty close to the 7.3% of millenials who identify as LGBT, and the older generations are just being less honest.

    http://www.rawstory.com/2017/01/more-americans-identifying-as-lgbtq/comments/#disqus

    • William

      In the last census, we are listed as cousins. Dirty, nasty cousins.

    • leastyebejudged

      Why would you think the older generations are being less honest ?

      • That_Looks_Delicious

        Because I don’t believe the percentage of LGBT varies over time. I think it has always been and will always be around the same, but that society at different times creates greater or lesser incentives to pretend to be straight. Thus, those who grew up during more homophobic times are more inclined to be closeted, at least to poll-takers.

        • leastyebejudged

          It never occurred to you that the numbers in the older age groups might be impacted by something, such as mortality ?

          • That_Looks_Delicious

            Well, yes, but they are percentages, of each age group and not totals. Also, there are percentages from polls in past years and decades to compare to.

          • leastyebejudged

            The percentages are skewed for the older age groups because they do not account for the dead. It really is that simple.

            Also, your interpretation of the data is not based on examination OF the data, it is based on your contempt for the generation that did all the work that got us this far, and paid the biggest price for it.

          God Awful Movies.

          If you donate to them on Patreon you get early episodes with added content. You can also find regular episodes on iTunes. Stitcher & Google Podcasts.

          I donate to them via Patreon. They work HARD to do a great job. And so many of the christian movies they review are seriously anti-lgbt. And they’re very pro-lgbt. But be warned. Their humor is no holds barred. Not for everyone. But all parties are fair game.

          https://www.patreon.com/GodAwful/posts

          The episode I’m listening to hasn’t been released outside of Patreon subscribers just yet. But if curious, check out their earlier episodes.

  • DaveW

    We knew this. I asked people and they did not care “but he’s a businessman “. People lie cheat and steal all the time. Our society is broken, this election is just a depressing reminder. It’s a logical extension of selfish behavior just like the religious ideal of hating in return for personal salvation or feeling superior.

    Supporting trump was allowing the office to be used for his gain in return for keeping that bitch out of office, tax breaks, guns, taking reproductive rights or allowing your hate to be expressed in many other ways. It was an immoral and selfish vote. I told both my parents and the blank stare I got back proved they knew and didn’t care.

    • TuuxKabin

      The blank stare. The wave of the hand as if a fly was buzzing around their vapid face. And the non-response/reply in emails to people and family who claim to ‘know me’ but will not engage in discussing what happened, where we are and/or what to do about it. It’s become a village/country/world of the damned. I empathize with what you just expressed.
