The Coming Republican Dark Age – ‘Jaws Drop As Trump WH Claims Starving Seniors By Killing Meals On Wheels Is Compassionate’

‘Trump White House Calls Starving Seniors An Act Of Compassion’

See there not ‘showing any results’…….

Feeding old people so they live longer isn’t a ‘result’……

‘Later Mulvaney was asked if this is a hard-hearted budget. He answered’,

“I don’t think so. In fact, I think it is one of the most compassionate things we can do to. You’re only focusing on half of the equation. Right? You’re focusing on recipients of the money. We’re trying to focus on both the recipients and the folks who give us the money in the first place, and I think it’s fairly compassionate to go to them and say look, we’re not going to ask you for your hard earned money anymore.”

The Coming Republican Dark Age – ‘Mick Mulvaney: No Evidence After-School Programs Help Kids Do Better’

Speaker of the House Paul Ryan (R-WI) had this reaction:

“I think if you read this entire report, I’m pretty encouraged by it.

“And it actually exceeded my expectations.”

Trump’s Heartless America – ‘Trump Seeks Huge Cuts at United Nations’

Who needs these and dozens more…..American Nationalism – “We Have Ours… Well some of us do so……Go Get Your Own”.

UNDP
‘The United Nations Development Programme works in nearly 170 countries and territories, helping to eradicate poverty, reduce inequalities and build resilience so countries can sustain progress’.

UNICEF
‘The United Nations Children’s Fund provides long-term humanitarian and development assistance to children and mothers’.

WFP
‘The World Food Programme aims to eradicate hunger and malnutrition. It is the world’s largest humanitarian agency. Every year, the programme feeds almost 80 million people in around 75 countries’.

WHO
‘The World Health Organization is the directing and coordinating authority on international health within the United Nations system’.

‘Foreign Policy’:

“State Department staffers have been instructed to seek cuts in excess of 50% in U.S. funding for U.N. programs, signaling an unprecedented retreat by President Trump’s administration from international operations that keep the peace, provide vaccines for children, monitor rogue nuclear weapons programs, and promote peace talks from Syria to Yemen, according to three sources.”

“It remains unclear whether the full extent of the steeper U.N. cuts will be reflected in the 2018 budget.”

Robert Reich – “As tyrants take control of democracies, they typically:”

1. Exaggerate their mandate to govern — claiming, for example, that they won an election by a landslide even after losing the popular vote.

2. Repeatedly claim massive voter fraud in the absence of any evidence, in order to restrict voting in subsequent elections.

3. Call anyone who opposes them “enemies.”

4. Turn the public against journalists or media outlets that criticize them, calling them “deceitful” and “scum.”

5. Hold few press conferences, preferring to communicate with the public directly through mass rallies and unfiltered statements.

6. Tell the public big lies, causing them to doubt the truth and to believe fictions that support the tyrants’ goals.

7. Blame economic stresses on immigrants or racial or religious minorities, and foment public bias and even violence against them.

8. Attribute acts of domestic violence to “enemies within,” and use such events as excuses to beef up internal security and limit civil liberties.

9. Threaten mass deportations, registries of a religious minority, and the banning of refugees with particular religious beliefs.

10. Seek to eliminate or reduce the influence of competing centers of power, such as labor unions and opposition parties.

11. Appoint family members to high positions of authority and power.

12. Surround themselves with their own personal security force rather than a security detail accountable to the public.

13. Put generals into top civilian posts.

14. Make personal alliances with foreign dictators.

15. Draw no distinction between personal property and public property, profiteering from their public office.

These warning signs should be of concern to everyone, regardless of political party. In fact, historically, conservatives have been especially vigilant against potential threats to our constitutional rights.
All Americans must join together to protect American democracy against tyranny.
Consider yourself warned.”

‘Trump administration adviser Kellyanne Conway joins FNC’s Chris Wallace to clear the air about Team Trump’s feud with the mainstream media’.

“Not one network person has been let go,” she argued. “Not one silly political analyst and pundit who talked smack all day long about Donald Trump has been let go. They are panels every Sunday, they are on cable news every day.”

‘She added: “I’m too polite to mention their names, but they know who they are, and they are all wondering who will be the first to go. The election was three months ago. None of them have been let go.”

“Biased coverage might be easy to detect, but incomplete coverage, impossible to detect,” she also said. “That is my major grievance. The media are not giving us complete coverage.”
