How Donald Trump Shifted Kids-Cancer Charity Money Into His Business

How Donald Trump Shifted Kids-Cancer Charity Money Into His Business | AUSTERITY & OPPRESSION SUPPORTERS  VS THE PROGRESSION Of The REST OF US | Scoop.it
Donald Trump is one of the least charitable billionaires in the world. Eric Trump is far more altruistic. In a clash of values, the president directed hundreds of thousands of dollars from his son's kids-with-cancer foundation into his company coffers.
Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:
Even for someone that already thought of Trump and friends as Greedy self centered Cons this stands out as totally over the top fraud and misuse of desperately needed funds for these sick kids and their families.

Nikki Haley threatens US withdrawal from UN human rights body

Nikki Haley threatens US withdrawal from UN human rights body | AUSTERITY & OPPRESSION SUPPORTERS  VS THE PROGRESSION Of The REST OF US | Scoop.it
US Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley slammed the UN Human Rights Council in a speech in Geneva on Tuesday, seemingly threatening that the US might withdraw from the body if reforms aren't made to "reestablish the Council's legitimacy."
Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:
Let me see..... America is threatening to leave because the UN is not being nice to a country occupying land most in the world feel they don't own and the same country keeps the people that do own that land oppressed and locked up behind walls with nearly no human Remember that kid that came to your house and wanted to dictate all the things your kids and that kid were going to do while that kid was around? Also if spouses are having a disagreement before the marriage is 6 months old would you recommend on of them start threatening divorce to build trust and improve a relationship. Notice this stand off is not about starving children in Africa...

The most frustrating thing about Megyn Kelly’s new NBC show is that it exists. In the promos leading up to the premiere of Sunday Night With Megyn Kelly, the former Fox News propagandist reveals five things we can look forward to on the show. We’re supposed to forget that while at FOX News, she was smug, condescending, and, yes, racist throughout her stint there. The days in which she wanted it to be known that Santa is white and that’s that.

Army offers up to $90K bonuses to lure troops back

Army offers up to $90K bonuses to lure troops back | AUSTERITY & OPPRESSION SUPPORTERS  VS THE PROGRESSION Of The REST OF US | Scoop.it
In an effort to fulfill President Trump’s push for expanding the U.S. military, the Army is offering up to $90,000 bonus for some soldiers who commit to additional years of service.
Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:
The GOP want to offer bonus to keep people in after turning Military retirement into a 401 plan? Why again would they not take that 401 and move it and themselves to a safe place? How much would it take to get the president and those senators's young adult kids to enlist?

So much for the eclipse of the Steve Bannon wing of the Trump administration.
Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:
Trump and Bannon dream and work towards what both declare as "the destruction of the Administrative State". Excerpt: His tweets on the London attacks may delight his supporters, but they raise questions about whether he is besmirching the decorum that is inherent in the Presidency itself. The notion that an American President would personally single out a senior political figure in a closely allied nation that is counting its dead from a terror attack, rather than simply express empathy,

Donald Trump's privatisation plans 'would hand America's most important assets to special interests'

Donald Trump's privatisation plans 'would hand America's most important assets to special interests' | AUSTERITY & OPPRESSION SUPPORTERS  VS THE PROGRESSION Of The REST OF US | Scoop.it
Donald Trump has announced his proposal to privatise the US's air traffic control system, part of his vision for a massive infrastructure overhaul that Democrats say could leave important assets in the hands of powerful corporations and special interest groups. Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer blasted Mr Trump’s infrastructure proposal, arguing that financiers would profit while average citizens will be stuck with the bill for projects aimed at trying to improve the nation’s waterways, roads and airports.
Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:
There are occasions when it better to rent than own....but to basically hand over citizen shared assets and at the same time have citizens pay tax dollars instead of get paid for those assets is crazy and fool hardy! Remember also in this country if a business is private it can be sold to the next highest buyer. The republicans so far are pushing privatizing education, postal services, VA services, social security, public lands, national parks, and our infrastructure,...all ready did for starters internet browser history though it wasn't public they felt free to take/steal our person private browsers histories and without our consent or payment or royalties to us as individuals, hand it over for marketing and to generate profits to our ISPs . Our internet histories are modern day slaves to be given to and sold to the ISP masters and others.
