Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:
Ha! I guess if you start off in a huge money pit of living in New York, weekend trips for the family and cost of protecting 3 wives and kid's multiple families you must cut corners a bit. Right?

Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:
Powerful speech and to his point! McCain's son serve in the armed forces as he did. Trump"s daughter and sons serve themselves selling expensive things to the richest people in the world like their father has all his life.

The Paul's get played every time the GOP needs the old tax the less and get the regulations off the back of corporations and rich people as well tune. So bring no on the chorus of little government.

The drug industry’s triumph over the DEA

The drug industry’s triumph over the DEA | AUSTERITY & OPPRESSION SUPPORTERS  VS THE PROGRESSION Of The REST OF US | Scoop.it
How Congress allied with drug company lobbyists to derail the DEA’s war on painkillers.
Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:
This is how it works... the GOP fully works for the ALEC and Heritage Foundation and other bill mills... these donors pick who will run for office and actually get money to do that... voters pick from those preselected and sponsored candidates... and yes even Rand Paul and Carson showed up to address ALEC. That is how legislation like this passes. All while the song and dance show focuses on the poor stealing your money, the government overreach, the murder of unborn people, gayness, and other people these groups know how to work people up over. Behind the show is the real deals and fact these bill mills do not care much about who lives or dies or how they live or die as long as they get the bills passed that make them rich and evermore powerful!

CSIS Commentary: Driving Forces to Increase Pressure on Venezuela’s Dictatorship

CSIS Commentary: Driving Forces to Increase Pressure on Venezuela’s Dictatorship | AUSTERITY & OPPRESSION SUPPORTERS  VS THE PROGRESSION Of The REST OF US | Scoop.it
Sunday’s gubernatorial elections reconfirmed that Venezuela’s democracy cannot be restored by constitutional means. The current regime is led by a corrupt cabal unwilling to give up its concentrated power, after causing an unprecedented humanitarian, economic, and political crisis. Under unfair and nontransparent election procedures, the National Electoral Council—Consejo Nacional Electoral (CNE)—announced, despite multiple polls predicting the reverse, that pro-regime governors had won two-thirds of all seats.

Bannon's playbook: How he'll wreck the GOP establishment | AUSTERITY & OPPRESSION SUPPORTERS  VS THE PROGRESSION Of The REST OF US | Scoop.it
Steve Bannon and his allies don’t have to take every battle in their guerrilla war to win. They just have to wreak enough havoc.
Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:
President Brannon, the puppet master from the big bill mill donors behind the GOP and Trump. Looks like those rich donors have decided to hatchet out their old more subtle leadership and go right for the total corporate coup through Trump and Bannon. Trump has his core base right where theses donors want them... they are ripe for the kill to be used to get their dark agendas through... and those followers won't know what hit them till it's too late! It's a short sighted lose lose game in reality. Bannon wins either way you order his meals bunker meals for $17 to store up for when all his planned up chaos breaks out and you need to eat in your bunker.... not joking ... His new out was advertising these.
