Trump's Kulturkampf on behalf of Lasting Stupidity, NPR, NEH Endangered!

How many of you remember actor Kevin Kline's great role as the history teacher in "The Emperor's Club"? (2002) If you haven't seen it, do so as fast as you can and get on the horn, your computer, your cellsl, hell, especially get going on a Twitter Account to expose the incoming Trump Administration's proposed Kulturkampf against National Public Radio and the National Endowment for the Humanities.

Arriba! Arriba! Cabinet Nominees Storm the Congressional Border

The Republicans are good scholars of the behaviors that they deride in public, but gladly put to use themselves. Several of the southern border crossing points have experienced dozens of people from Mexico simultaneously dashing across the checkpoints. The idea is that most will get through and those that don’t may live to try again in the future.

Are Americans closet NAZIS

Are Americans a closet nazis, because the supporters of nazism knew precisely what was to happen under Adolf Hitler, Hitler had spelled it out in his book 'My Struggle' but knowing all of this Germans made a bargain with the devil, ' bring Germany prosperity make the country strong again and they'd agree to look the other way and accept the inevitable'. But in the end that 'bargain with the devil' cost the lives of millions of young Germans and the total destruction of their country and decades of horrific shame as to what was done under their name.

Positive Change

If you want to see a positive change, every time you refer to Trump or Pence , and every Senator, Congress member, or appointee use the preceding adjective "Republican" without emphasis. Do so with NO Emphasis (this is very important) on “Republican”. Think about what will happen within two years. Think about it.

Buyer beware of Trump's new health insurance for all.

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!

Zen world piece?

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".

Fascists read Orwell and the nazis' rise to power as instruction manuals.

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.

Trump - Dumb Luck or A Master Manipulator?

Thom plus logo Either it's an act of a master manipulator, or he has the best luck there is. Donald Trump wanted the Fed to lower interest rates, knowing that that would provide a solid and multi-year boost to the economy. But when Trump came into office, rates were already low and the Fed was not inclined to help.
