What Happens In America If Trump Is Re-Elected?

Thom plus logo If Trump gets reelected and Republicans stay in power in the majority of our states and in the United States Senate, what could be the worst outcome? Would it be the further transfer of wealth from the middle-class to the very rich? Would it be greater and greater student debt burdens on working people? Would it be the acceleration of the destruction of our environment? Will he launch a final assault on the media and try to turn the entire American media landscape into something resembling Fox News? Will McConnell's corrupt judges with lifetime appointments kneecap enforcement against white-collar crime?

How much damage will be done by their war on science? Will religious fundamentalists step up their efforts to burrow deeply into our political parties and subvert the separation of church and state? Will the world be plunged into a war starting in Iran or Venezuela? Will the government begin rounding up liberals the way they are undocumented immigrants right now? How might Trump's privatized prisons and concentration camps be expanded and who might he be putting in them to generate more profit for his billionaire buddies? Will Trump's expansion of the use of poisonous pesticides and deregulation around pollution cause a larger explosion of cancer and other diseases?

How bad could it get?

My prediction is that if Trump gets re-elected, a whole lot of democrats will need to put on suicide watch.

Does Trump "Tweet" When His Staff Says No?

Thom plus logo Lev Parnas tells the story of how Donald Trump fired ambassador Marie Yovanovitch at least "four or five times," and that they were afraid that he would "fire her with a tweet." This is not the first time we have heard from White House insiders that the president often gives irrational or stupid orders that his staff then ignores.

From Unequal Protection, 2nd Edition:
"Beneath the success and rise of American enterprise is an untold history that is antithetical to every value Americans hold dear. This is a seminal work, a godsend really, a clear message to every citizen about the need to reform our country, laws, and companies."

From Screwed:
"I think many of us recognize that for all but the wealthiest, life in America is getting increasingly hard. Screwed explores why, showing how this is no accidental process, but rather the product of conscious political choices, choices we can change with enough courage and commitment. Like all of Thom’s great work, it helps show us the way forward."

From Screwed:
"Hartmann speaks with the straight talking clarity and brilliance of a modern day Tom Paine as he exposes the intentional and systematic destruction of America’s middle class by an alliance of political con artists and outlines a program to restore it. This is Hartmann at his best. Essential reading for those interested in restoring the institution that made America the envy of the world."
