It's a well known fact that before Donald Trump's election, the Republican Congress passed over 60 bills to repeal Obama's ACA....and that if you could sum up their raison d'etre it would be to stop this so-called enormous transfer of wealth from the middle class to the poor, and leave the rich and powerful with their vast untold fortunes untouched. If that's really true, does anyone in their right mind really think that Republicans in Congress would ever go along with the idea of health insurance for all? NO, NO, and NO!
When the economic pie gets divided up and the greedy military industrial banking oligarchs demand a bigger piece, or more pieces, the Zen master say's, "Piece comes from within".
The recent revelation that there are factions in the FBI who were dedicated to taking out any Democrat seeking or in power demonstrates the fascist agenda if quietly getting their minions in to power at any and all levels. They quietly stacked the FBI and other institutions of authoritarianism with their minions. It was like quietly loading a gun. Now they are ready to pull the trigger. They are risking exposure because they know that the internet will eventually be their undoing. If it isn't already doing so.
I am notsure that i want to watch this. I think it might make me sick. what do you think? Also, I can't believe tht CNN is spending the entire day going from one phase of the inauguration to another, including all the parties afterward! Who cares what these people do?
“It is very unfair that John Lewis accused Donald Trump of not being a legitimate president.” (so says Ms. Conway) Poor little Donald, it is so unfair. Imagine, this is the same prick who for five years claimed that Barack Obama was not legitimate because he wasn’t born in America.
The Powers That Be [the Deep State] are not going to allow "their internet systems" to be used to bring down their oligarchal control of "all things USA"...and more. So, lefties should prepare to get around this...and of course, to stop being so naive in thinking that the internet will be fully available into the future. Wake up my "lofty, [perhaps lazy], liberal and historically naive" friends. Way too much control is at stake for "them" to let us flip their world on its head by using their communications and organizing system.
This is it folks. The bottom line. Trump is a little boy trying to drive an adult car. when he crashes and burns no one will be surprised except those who believed he could do it.
Hi Thom. Hoping this may reach you. I read your daily column and and then share it with friends in Maine. I wondered if you had covered the subject of the article by Mattithias Schwartz in the NYT magazine this past Sunday. It caught my attention and made me wonder an awful lot about the pervasiveness of cyber crime, and the uses of malware for good or evil. Terrific aticle! Thanks for all you have done to broadcast about "crosschecking" and Kris Kobach. I hope someday his story and what he has done will make it onto 60 minutes or an Oliver Stone movie.
The whole tar sands extraction process is a multi level ecological disaster, past pipeline debates are more like a diversionary hoax.
