The Triumph of Donald Trump

Trump's base can't handle the truth:

He's wrecking their economy

"In the first four months of FY19, the deficit grew to $310 billion, up from $176 billion in FY18. To rein it in, the Trump administration and Congressional Republicans have targeted cutting entitlements that many Trump supporters depend on. Yet they remain steadfast. When will they ever learn?

America is now governed by the least educated, least informed and most gullible 34 percent of the electorate — Donald Trump’s base. Their most common delusion is that Trump is responsible for our strong economy.......

Historically, low unemployment and GDP growth meant more people paid more taxes and deficits shrunk. But because of Trump’s tax cuts, that’s not happening now. Other than during wartime, this decoupling of the deficit from the business cycle has never happened before.

Debt has soared under Trump, and the U.S. debt-to-GDP ratio has grown to 105 percent, the highest since 1950. Rising debt-to-GDP ratios often signal a recession......

Republicans need Trump’s base to win elections, so they are very reluctant to oppose his policies no matter how damaging they may be.

That leaves truth-telling up to the Democrats. They must pound away at the facts until they convince enough Trump supporters of the true impact of his policies and weaken Trump’s political leverage over Republicans in Congress.....

Why migrants are going to Canada to enter the U.S.

NBC’s Kerry Sanders reports from Vermont, where a growing numbers of migrants are illegally crossing into the U.S. from Canada because of lower security, and how inexpensive it can be.

"Happy Days Are Here Again" was FDR's theme song on his way to greatness in the 1932 presidential election. It was fine then. It's fine now.

Image result for happy days are here again fdr

Maybe the Dems should get Barbra Streisand to sing her version of the song in Milwaukee.

 

This is Barbra's first theme song.

Well at least the Dem Presidential candidate will have visited this battleground state once during the campaign.

(Unlike that moronically and arrogantly run campaign their last candidate ran).

JUST IN: President Trump’s budget proposal for 2020 calls for a 4.9 percent increase in defense spending, and

a 7.4 percent increase in DHS funding.

It also calls for decreases in funding for other departments:

EPA down 31.2%

State down 23.3%

USDA down 14.8%

HHS down 11.9%

& $845 billion Medicare cut

This series, about Chinese nationals putting money into the GOP 2016 presidential election

via a Citizens United/Super PAC loophole, led to record FEC fines made public today.

(https://campaignlegal.org/press-releases/breaking-record-fines-imposed-totaling-940000-foreign-interference-presidential ).

=======================================

"..... Obama predicted during his State of the Union address that Citizens United would open the door to foreign money in elections,....

“It shows that although Obama was attacked in public for misleading Americans about Citizens United, in private people like Spies and others like him seemingly realized that Obama was right and set to work making his prediction a reality.” ...

it doesn’t matter that APIC is owned by Chinese citizens. It’s incorporated in California and therefore counts as an American company that can spend money in U.S. elections just like any other.

And that means it can spend a lot. By striking down prohibitions on corporations and unions engaging in “independent expenditures” on elections, the Supreme Court declared in Citizens United that they can spend as much of their money on engaging in political speech as they want —"

In a new statement, @SenSchumer calls the 2020 Budget "a gut-punch to the American middle class." Calls its proposed cuts to Medicare, Medicaid, & Social Security, "devastating, but not surprising." Says it would take US "backward" and "weaken" the middle class.

Starve the poor, elderly and disabled. Spend billions instead on a phony wall that won’t do anything for anyone. That is the Trump “populist” budget.

Just a reminder that rich people are able to use their money and power to open elite doors for their mediocre children that, in turn, make it far more likely that they will succeed in life. Poor people and POC are expected to be exceptional. This is not a meritocracy.

That would also include the 43rd president and the 45th president of the United States.

And that wouldn't surprise anyone who knew anything about these two presidents.
