America's Chief Grifter Strikes Again

Thom plus logo Trump says he is going to boost unemployment payments by $400, stop evictions, cut payroll taxes, and extend student loan relief.

In fact, these are all lies. As usual, it's a new con job, a grift from our grifter-in-chief.

Everything Trump Touches Dies - Including Trade & Bringing Jobs Home

Thom plus logo This just in from Lori Wallach, Director Public Citizen's Global Trade Watch - In his speech now underway at Whirlpool in Ohio, Trump claimed to have met all of his trade promises from 2016. NOT!

Will the coronavirus wake Americans up to the cancer that has infected our political system?

Thom plus logo The Republican hostility to helping people who lost their jobs because of the coronavirus, to expanding healthcare to all the American people, and their hostility to doing anything about climate change all come from the same source: greed and the big money it produces.

Americans Must Focus on 2024 & The Rise of Authoritarianism

Thom plus logo America needs to talk about Trump-proofing democracy for 2024 and beyond.

The billionaires with strong fascistic tendencies are carefully watching Trump and his administration to see what works and what doesn't as he pushes to tear apart our institutions of governance and divide America as a political strategy.

The Big Lie versus grieving families and a dying democracy

Thom plus logo It's showing up in the obituaries.

People in the throes of agony from losing someone close to them are writing things like, "Instead of flowers, donate to a Democrat," or "instead of flowers, tell everyone to vote against Trump and the GOP this fall." It's become a national trend.

Trump and the Republicans are Willing to Damage America to Hang Onto Power - What Will Happen in November?

Thom plus logo Donald Trump just tweeted his outrage that the State of Nevada is going to make it easy for all their registered citizens to vote by mail.

He knows, as Republicans have known for 40 years since Americans first started rejecting Reaganomics in widespread numbers, that when everybody can vote in America, Republicans lose elections.

Will America let Trump get away with it?

Thom plus logo As an American dies every minute from coronavirus because Donald Trump and the Republican Party refused to do anything about it, they are now trying to use the coronavirus to mess with the election this November.

Americans Still Want to Know Why Donald Trump Is Letting Us Die

Thom plus logo Back on March 24, when Americans were just beginning to start dying from Covid in substantial numbers, I asked the question, "Why?"

Why did Trump initially procrastinate for two months?

Was he trying to squeeze a few months extra revenue out of his hotels?

Coronavirus relief: it's time to put Americans first

Thom plus logo Since the beginning of the coronavirus pandemic, Republicans' price for supporting unemployment checks and other benefits for average working people has been several trillion dollars shoveled directly into corporate coffers, both through tax breaks, grants, and the Fed buying trillions worth of corporate stocks and bonds.

Now Republicans are saying they want to cut people's unemployment benefits, and they'll only go along with giving unemployed people a measly $200 a week if they can also give immunity to corporate CEOs and managers when their stupid decisions cause people to die.

How much worse must things get before Americans wake up to the Republican scam?

Thom plus logo Republicans in Congress right now are fighting each other over how severely they should cut back on unemployment benefits to people out of work because of this administration's incompetence in handling the coronavirus.
