Executive orders sources?

It's clear now that t rump was not lying when he was talking about the election being rigged. He knew his own election was being rigged. If the oligarchs and their puppets destroy SSI, Medicare and Medicaid, the blame will fall on their puppets. not the puppet masters.

The Supreme Court Broke Politics - How Do We Now Reform the Supreme Court?

Thom plus logo We complain about the state of American politics; about a mentally ill billionaire in the White House and a Republican Party crawling with hustlers and conmen, and a few in the Democratic Party as well.
