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.
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”.
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.
Three Indiana judges, out on a booze-fueled bender the night before a judicial conference, got into a fight and two of them got shot. It started at a White Castle when one of them (a female) flipped the bird at a passing car. Then the fun began.
The Indiana Supreme Court suspended the judges.
a segment of the American electorate that was once peripheral is drawn to “chaos incitement” and that this segment has gained decisive influence through the rise of social media.
The circulation of this type of information (which the authors label “hostile political rumors”) has been “linked to large-scale political outcomes within recent years such as the 2016 U.S. presidential election.”
Along with finance and technology.
In 2017, 29 percent of those surveyed worldwide said they “often or sometimes avoid the news,” including 38 percent in the United States and 24 percent in the U.K. By 2019, those numbers had increased to 32 percent worldwide (+3), 41 percent in the U.S. (+3), and 35 percent in the U.K. (+11).

I suspect it’s because of thumpers–the religious zealots Trump works so hard to keep in the cult.
People for the American Way
Then there’s this:
Education Secretary Betsy DeVos announced Monday that she will no longer enforce a provision in federal law that bars religious organizations from providing federally funded educational services to private schools.
So how does the “Budget for a Better America” treat Medicare and the other programs that Trump vowed to safeguard at all costs? By calling for even larger cuts to them than the White House proposed this time last year, when it formally abandoned Trump’s campaign pledges. The budget for the 2019 fiscal year called for five hundred and fifty billion dollars in cuts to Medicare over ten years. With the budget deficit skyrocketing as a consequence of the Trump-G.O.P. tax bill, the 2020 budget would reduce spending on Medicare by eight hundred and forty-five billion dollars over the next decade. Even in Washington, that’s a lot of money.
But he wants $6.8 billion for his wall.
