In my other post today you can see what is happening to the Texas Attorney General for filing a frivolous law suit for Trump. There are indeed consequences for attorneys who file frivolous lawsuits for Trump.
You did not read many of the books written by republicans who worked in the White House or you would know that to be a fact. Trump was a senile old man and they knew how to manipulate the old fool.
The republican’s senators are absolutely livid that the truth about the results of their $10 trillion tax cut came out. After Trump’s $10 trillion tax cut IRS records show that 25 billionaires in America are paying little or no income taxes. What has the republicans so livid is not that 25 billionaires are not paying a penny in taxes, what they are so upset about is the information was released to the public when a tax debate is coming. It seems the time has come to debate Biden plan to raise taxes on the ungodly greedy. Now that the public has found that Elon Musk and Jeff Bezos are paying less income tax than the janitor at a school it is hard for the republicans to justify their mega tax cuts for the ungodly greedy.
At one time we had an Alternative Minimum Tax, AMT, that ensured that the ungodly greedy paid some income tax even if they had mega deductions, they would have to pay some income tax and could not get by with paying nothing. The middle class pays a much higher percentage in taxes than the ungodly greedy or the poor. At one time we had a progressive tax system but the ungodly greedy bribed the law makers and now we have a very regressive tax system. Under Biden we have a chance to correct the tax system but the ungodly greedy will pull out all the stops to buy the politicians.
Joe Manchin showed how easily a politician can be bought. Manchin was supporting the voting law that would stop all the Jim Crow laws be passed by the states to keep the blacks from voting but as soon as he was given a large payoff by a pro-business group that had not given him a cent in ten years, he starts writing Op Eds against the voting bill.
Today we have 34,275,783 cases of the Trump virus, yesterday we had 34,264,727 cases of the Trump virus. That means that another 11,056 Americans were diagnosed with the Trump virus today.
The death toll stands at 614,007 today, yesterday the death toll stood at 613,494. That means that another 513 Americans died today from the Trump virus.
Trump complained his phone was tapped during the 2016 election, it turned out that it wasn’t. Now we find out the Trump had used the justice department to obtain the phone and email records of not only congressmen but their spouses and even children along with the phone records of reporters. Trump it seems was looking for people that were providing leaks to the press of unflattering information about Trump and his Russian friends. Both attorney generals were involved, Jeff Sessions and William Barr.
Trump needed to look much closer to home as most of the leaks were coming from White House employees. A gag order was placed on Apple to keep them from notifying their customers that a subpoena had been executed to obtain their phone and email records. The gag orders were renewed three times. Without any evidence of leaks Trump administration should not have been able to obtain the subpoenas. Trump was creating a police state. The subpoenas gave them access to all kinds of personal information in order to control congressmen. How different it was when Trump thought he was being spied on but he had no problem spying on others.
Today we have 34,306,448 cases of the Trump virus, yesterday we had 34,275,783 cases of the Trump virus. That means that another 30,665 Americans were diagnosed with the Trump virus today.
The death toll stands at 614,738 today, yesterday the death toll stood at 614,007. That means that another 731 Americans died today from the Trump virus.
Is Trump the new Nixon and are we witnessing the break in of the Watergate Hotel again? Times change yet motives remain the same. The difference was that Nixon dispatched the Watergate burglars to break in to the Watergate Hotel to get information about his political enemies. Trump cut out the middle man, the Watergate burglars, instead he dispatched the Justice Department to get the information on his political enemies. If it was wrong for Nixon, it is just as wrong for Trump.
Both achieved their objective but Trump’s use of government employees compounded the wrong. Most people were surprised by Nixon’s actions but few would be surprised by Trump’s actions. In view of the Trump’s insurrection this latest discovery seems relative mild but the corruption of the Justice Department is important. This gave Trump the power of the Watergate burglars to gather information not only about the congressmen but their employees and children. On crime shows you will often see that judges refuses to give a warrant to police for a strong suspect because the judge believes they don’t have enough information to get a warrant, but in this case a “special” group of judges approved the warrants with little to no information to justify the warrants. If the judges violated their oath, they should be removed.
Today we have 34,315,873 cases of the Trump virus, yesterday we had 34,306,448 cases of the Trump virus. That means that another 9,425 Americans were diagnosed with the Trump virus today.
The death toll stands at 614,955 today, yesterday the death toll stood at 614,738. That means that another 217 Americans died today from the Trump virus.
Trump’s favorite conspiracy theorist, Alex Jones, financed the insurrection with $500.000 of his own money. Jones actually believed he could take control of the US government. Trump encouraged Jones to lead the mob to capitol. Jones believes that forces are at work to control people’s minds. This particular conspiracy theory is extremely popular in most mental institutions.
Global warming? Not a chance according Jones the changes in our weather are caused by weather weapons used by our government. Jones is quoted as saying “We had flash floods in Texas that killed thirty some people in one night. Turns out it was the Air Force.
Jones will admit to the existence of “natural” tornados but insisted the May 2013 tornado that killed two dozen people and injured 200 may have been orchestrated by the government which he said “can be create and steer groups of tornadoes.”
“One of Jones’ most notorious conspiracy theories is that the government is using chemicals in order to turn people gay, using a mysterious “gay bomb” devised by the Pentagon.”
When we let people like Jones get a following it is bound to end badly. It seems mental illness may be caught by some people.
We have 34,321,158 cases of the Trump virus today, yesterday we had 34,315,873 cases of the Trump virus. That means that another 5,285 Americans were diagnosed with the Trump virus today.
The death toll stands at 615,053 today, yesterday the death toll stood at 614,955. That means that another 58 Americans died from the Trump virus today.
