The next Republican president might just start infringing on First Amendment rights. It turns out the last one did. I wonder how much coverage this story gets:
Can't wait for this. It's been too long:
Trump's last days in the bunker:
John McEntee, one of Donald Trump's most-favored aides, handed retired Army Col. Douglas Macgregor a piece of paper with a few notes scribbled on it. He explained: "This is what the president wants you to do."
1. Get us out of Afghanistan.
2. Get us out of Iraq and Syria.
3. Complete the withdrawal from Germany.
4. Get us out of Africa.
It was Nov. 9, 2020 — days after Trump lost his re-election bid, 10 weeks before the end of his presidency and just moments after Macgregor was offered a post as senior adviser to acting Defense Secretary Christopher Miller.
Miller told associates he had three goals for the final weeks of the Trump administration: #1: No major war. #2: No military coup. #3: No troops fighting citizens on the streets.
No shit. It's only the third fucking election in a row that this happened:
State of American democracy update:
The party of the working classes. When taxes do eventually have to be increased you can see who is going to end up paying them:
In related and completely unsurprising news lobbyists apparently have enough votes in the House and Senate to block any Biden tax rises from happening. So people earning half a million a year won't have to tip over that extra sixty dollars a week to fund investments which would actually grow the economy for everybody. Guaranteed the next time there's a GOP prez and they control all three branches the top one percent will get another gigantic tax cut though.
