Republicans: Determined to Destroy America. A Country Led By Morons.

Trump’s assassination of Iranian general Qassim Suleimeni is only one of many autocratic mis-steps by the moron in the White House. Pentagon officials were reportedly stunned by the moron’s decision. The Iraq parliament approved a non-binding resolution telling the U.S. to get out of Iraq. We may be going to war with Iran. ISIS will expand.

This, after we were lied to about the Iraq war.

Thank (largely) Republican warhawks for all of this. The same Republicans who say they won’t impeach the moron.

Republicans: The Most Dangerous Organization in Human History

Republicans, says Noam Chomsky, are the most dangerous organization in human history.

As Australia is turned into cinders by huge wildfires, as communities experience increased flooding, as Russians continue to work to influence our elections, and as gun deaths and mass-shootings rise, the Republicans refuse to even acknowledge any of it, and, in fact deny any of it. High-tide flooding has doubled in the past thirty years.

The Republican solution? EPA website removes climate science site from public view after two decades.

Financial Bankruptcy and Military Spending

According to this site, the U.S. has 200,000 active troops overseas in 177 countries. Under Republicans, we pay more tax dollars to fund the military. Over One Trillion dollars per year.

An already-huge defense spending budget has increased under Republicans. While this pie chart is several years old, it’s an example of how much of our discretionary spending goes to the military:

Although military spending is HUGE, and ever-increasing under Republican leadership, the Republicans’ solution to an ever-increasing national debt is to cut social-welfare programs like Social Security (which is self-funding), Medicare and Medicaid.

#GOPTaxScam

Republicans promised tax breaks for everyone with their #GOPTaxScam. Instead, multi-billion-dollar corporations paid NO taxes, as the national debt exploded under the moron and Republicans. Ironic, isn’t it, that the political party which promotes itself as
the party of “fiscal responsibility” is actually the party of “borrow and spend”.

Environmental Destruction

The moron and his Republican cohorts have destroyed environmental protections. ” A new report concludes that the damage already done by the Trump administration to the environment, and the US agency that regulates it, will result in 80,000 deaths each decade. “

Republicans are Screwing America.

America, it should be painfully obvious to anyone paying attention that Republicans are screwing America.

From Robert Reich:
Who really benefited from Trump’s tax cuts?
Pfizer –> Donations to GOP: $16M Tax cut received: $39B
GE –> Donations to GOP: $20M Tax cut received: $16B
Chevron –> Donations to GOP: $13M Tax cut received: $9B
It’s socialism for the rich in exchange for campaign cash.

Also from Robert Reich:

Since 2009, the combined wealth of the members of the Forbes 400 list has more than doubled from $1.3 trillion to nearly $3 trillion.
Meanwhile, their taxable income has fallen from 27% to 23% over the same time.
They are worth more than ever, but paying less.
Tax the rich.

More Proof of Another Republican Big Lie (“Tax Cuts for Corporations Will Boost Jobs and Help the Working Class”)

Remember what Republicans called the “Tax Cuts and Jobs Act”?

As you know (if you’ve been paying attention), the “Jobs” part of the Republican bill was a huge lie.

Corporations didn’t generally invest in their companies, their workforce, or create jobs. They spent BILLIONS buying back shares to boost the stock price (executives’ bonuses get a boost when the company’s stock price goes up).

Five companies blow $55 billion in Q1 to prop up their own shares.

The #GOPTaxScam: A Look Behind the Scenes at the Corruption Involved. How the National Debt Increased by Over $3.5 TRILLION.

Corporations, which drove the train, got even more of a tax cut than they wanted. Yet they refused to promise that their huge tax break would hike worker wages. Medium-sized and big businesses got something they had only dreamed of — though in provisions so badly written one tax expert called them a “travesty.”

Rich Republicans lobbied Trump at a Manhattan fundraiser and got 2.6 percentage points lopped off their highest tax bracket.

Deficit hawks, that is, those opposed to creating any new federal debt, hemmed and hawed and finally folded, as one commentator put it, “like a cheap suit.”

An idea that would have raised $1 trillion and paid for much of the tax cuts was soundly defeated by a powerful business lobby.

Republicans used $1.5 trillion in what some call accounting gimmicks to either hide the true cost of the bill or help justify their votes.

The bill was drafted in secret, partly to keep it from Congress’s own members who, it was feared, would leak it to lobbyists.

[And, of course, the Koch brothers and their fellow plutocrats were involved.]

The Urban-Brookings Tax Policy Center in September 2016 looked at its proposals for individual tax cuts and found that by 2025, 99.6 percent of its net tax cuts would go to the top 1 percent of earners. The nonpartisan Tax Policy Center said the plan would cause the federal debt to rise $3 trillion in its first 10 years and $6.6 trillion by the end of the second decade.

The Takeaway: NEVER vote for a Republican.

Why Won’t Twitter Treat White Supremacy Like ISIS? Because It Would Mean Banning Some Republican Politicians Too.

Republicans have long taken to complaining when their warped ideology and tribe are questioned. One of their recent complaints: “Republicans are discriminated against on social media”. That argument is, of course, bullshit.

At a Twitter all-hands meeting on March 22, an employee asked a blunt question: Twitter has largely eradicated Islamic State propaganda off its platform. Why can’t it do the same for white supremacist content?

In separate discussions verified by Motherboard, that employee said Twitter hasn’t taken the same aggressive approach to white supremacist content because the collateral accounts that are impacted can, in some instances, be Republican politicians.

Motherboard (Vice)

It has also been observed that if Twitter banned white supremacists, many of those banned would be Trump supporters, and that would result in an uproar from the cult of the moron. Apparently, Twitter prefers to avoid an uproar from the moron’s cult.
