Mueller Investigators If you are listening; Income Inequality and the need for greed

 

When the richest of the rich are worried about income inequality folks, you know it’s a big problem. The system is rigged for people like Trump and they know it- it’s all about their need for greed.

 

When the billionaires get worried they start pointing and screaming socialism at the top of their lungs. They screamed socialism at FDR’s “New Deal” they screamed socialism at “Social Security”, it’s what they do folks..

 

In my opinion, Attorney General Bill Barr is obstructing justice with the Mueller Report.. Trump calling the report “Treasonous” and “against the constitution” that’s why I say “Mueller Investigators, if you are listening.....l

Foreign Aid Isn’t Bribery Mr. President; Facebook’s Grand Bargain

Foreign aid shouldn’t be treated like a bribe where if a country doesn’t do ‘what you want’ (has to many immigrants to the US) then you simply pull the foreign aid. Normally, one would do an assessment of what’s working and what’s not working and make changes. Do you thinkTrump has any idea of this?

Facebook is willing to make a “Grand Bargain” to encourage regulation of their platforms. We’ll discuss why and what’s behind their call for regulation.

Time for news tidbits with Curtis where we discuss the news of the day and solve all the worlds problems!

 

Time for a bipartisan committee to review Muller Report

 

Something doesn’t look right here folks, on one hand AG Bill Barr is saying there’s nothing to see here, the Mueller Investigation is over, yet on the other hand, a prosecutor for the Mueller Investigation says “it is continuing robustly” (Politico https://goo.gl/KdKQY7 ) How this could be a calculated move by Mueller to protect and “immunize” the Investigation..

 

We have had tax cuts for the rich and now it’s cut time for budget cuts to pay for that.. PBS and Special Olympics are in the cross hairs

Is Trump Is Dancing In a Legal Minefield?; Oil Exec’s Celebrate Environmental Rollbacks!; ACA Healthcare Attack Resumes

 

 

Trump is celebrating the 4 page Attorney General’s summary of a two year Mueller Investigation but really, I don’t see any reason to celebrate. How can you say “no collusion” until these court cases are over?...

https://goo.gl/yHtLKe

 

Oil Executives are ‘clicking their heels’ at how they easily get the Trump administration to rollback these four key environmental regulations..

https://goo.gl/xCBvkH

 

You knew it was coming: under Trump’s direction the Department Of Justice reversed it’s earlier course and has adjoined a lawsuit in the most conservative court of the land to declare the entire Affordable Care Act null and void...

E 71 Socialism Is The New McCarthyism Are you sick and tired of Trump and his henchmen calling Democrats socialists? Republicans invented corporate welfare as we know it.. The Trump family has made building wealth using Government subsidies a family tradition.. Salon.com article on how the Trumps made a fortune on Government subsidies. https://goo.gl/Y6BtHd “Corporate Welfare Lives On and On” article by the Cato Institute https://goo.gl/crSzF8 The Trump tweets about ( McCain) and George Conway, the Conway family dynamic casts light on just how divisive Trump has been to many families

70; Time To Confront Racist Ideology Mr. Trump; Boeing’s Incredible Lack Of Regulation Here’s an example of how allowing a company to “self regulate” is a problem. Common sense regulation is necessary otherwise you have players like Boeing who try and rush the system just to make a deadline on a new plane and you know what happens then.. see article https://goo.gl/Hn2hzP I’m sick of this: time and time again, Trump refers to ‘bad people’ and never confronts the racist white extremism or white supremacy that is the root of the growing problem in the USA. Listen to Chief Of Staff Mick Mulvaney spin this issue in technicolor folks and you will ‘hear’ what I mean!

68: Trump Just Wasted 2 Years On Healthcare; More Trump storms ahead

What a waste. In the past two years, Trump could have been fixing what wasn’t working “right” with The Affordable Care Act.. instead, republicans have done everything to sleazily dilute, kick and now almost kill the Affordable Care Act.. as an American, you should be disgusted. Judge Reed O’Connors half baked judgement is now off to the 5th Circuit Court Of Appeals so let them know your healthcare and all the provisions that go with it are important to you and should be improved for all Americans, not killed:

US Court Of Appeals For The 5th Circuit 600 Camp St. New Orleans, LA 70130 Attn: clerk Lyle W. Cayce
