Republican Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell recently announced his opposition to any kind of relief packages for states, advising instead that states pursue the route of declaring bankruptcy. Since current federal law, for good reason, prohibits states from declaring bankruptcy, McConnell likewise voiced his support for altering the law itself.
Last week, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell voiced strong opposition to providing any federal relief funding to assist state and local governments losing revenues hand-over-fist and facing mountains of unforeseen expenditures due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Last night, Robert Costa, from the Washington Post reports that Steve Bannon is “pitching a plan to West Wing aides and congressional allies” in an apparent attempt to “cripple the federal investigation, into the matter of Russian interference.”
The reader will recall that Steve Bannon fell out of Mr. Trump’s graces over his comments in the recent bestseller, Fire And Fury; Inside The White House, and was in fact, fired despite Bannon’s claim that he resigned according to several sources.
According to Costa, the far-fetched plan demonstrates the legal desperation of Mr. Trump’s base. Said Mr. Costa:
“Nonetheless, Bannon’s efforts signify the growing pressure from an influential wing of Trump’s political base to thwart Mueller, who, many Trump allies believe, presents an existential legal and political threat to his presidency.”
The press has made such a fool of itself mocking Hillary Clinton that neoconservative and former speechwriter for President George W. Bush David Frum wrote Wednesday, "Hillary Clinton makes a perfectly reasonable - generous - point, promptly turned upside down by mockers & scoffers."
"The worse he does, the more eagerly the pundit seeks something to praise. We’ve all experienced this. 'There has to be something good to say about Trump.'"
Conservative CNN contributor and senior editor at The Atlantic David Frum reminded Trump and his supporters that actually, in spite of their claims to have a mandate, the people "didn't speak" because "Donald Trump won 0.35 points more of the popular vote than Michael Dukakis in 1988."
If anyone in America warrants having their citizenship revoked, it is Donald Trump; but like all Americans who aren’t naturalized, once a always a citizen, and it is too bad in Trump’s case.
Former speechwriter for President George W. Bush David Frum laid out some terror Wednesday with an eerie predication of the course of Donald Trump's impending authoritarianism.
For years now, we've watched the Republican Party degrade from a once viable conservative response to liberal philosophy, into an apocalyptic crazy town where thinking and humanity go to die.
Republicans have quit on America. They're putting forth no effort, and most importantly at all, they haven't even bothered to show up for the past two years.
