A Message To Trump Supporters.

My Recent Posts

I have decided to comment on Trump's Presidency since it is close to 100 days of him being in office. I will say is that Trump is definitely unfit to be President. This man has no vision for America to push the nation forward and retreating to outdated ideas. I am glad that his wife and son are leaving New York because it was costing the taxpayers in New York billions of dollars that could have been better spent on helping The Homeless, The Poor, and our Education system to protect them.

Jeff Sessions, the current Attorney General wants to bring back The "War" on Drugs that was a dismissal failure even during the Reagan Years. Not dealing with the root of the problem plus Sessions is an unapologetic racist who still hasn't changed at all. I will say this to Trump Supporters who are disappointed with Trump is that you have gotten what you deserve.

I will log off for now and observe the Trump Train which is about to derail which is a matter of time. Here are the links to the articles that support my argument.

Have you lost your mind Gregory? Trump has done more to restore America in 8 weeks than Obama did in 8 years. That is the difference between a Business man and a Community Organizer.
 
Not the difference between a Black Man and a White Man.
 
You don't understand Trump's plan for America because it is a plan for self reliance. The best way to help the homeless is to give them JOBS, not handouts! When did you complain about the Obama's lavish vacations, or needless separate trips/
 
It is time for you to stand up like a man and work to help all poor people. Not whine for government to do it for you!!!
Gregory S. McNeill Added Apr 18, 2017 - 7:13am
I haven't lost my mind. America has become the laughing stock to the world! Trump's actions speak for him. Case in point why won't he release his taxes proves he has something to hide. Wake up and smell the coffee! 
Gregory S. McNeill Added Apr 18, 2017 - 7:17am
Expat why did ypu call yourself that? Did you run away from America because of Obama? At least he didn't insult people and would lead us potentially to war! You should wake up! I am no longer responding to you.

Trump is in disarray and exacerbating tensions in America and around the world!  Newt Gingrich should manage the White House and stop the disorder!
Thomas Sutrina Added Apr 18, 2017 - 9:04am
So let me say you are correct in your evaluations.  The simplest waste of letters it the deal with the cost of his wife and child staying in New York so he can finish out the school year.  As a percentage of the spending of the government this is less then trivial.  I thought this about golf time of any president including Obama.  And the trips to where ever. Trivial effect on the budget.  Not worth the letters.
 
You say, "Trump is definitely unfit to be President. This man has no vision for America."  Now every presidential candidate has had a vision.  That was their campaign.  So he did have a vision for America.   And every president get significantly more information on the state of thing as president that he did not have as a candidate so that vision or rather his action change relative to the vision.   A candidate does not run of giving out welfare and capitulating to the enemies.  At least not since I have heard candidates pitches.
 
As far as unfit.  It is a term used often but as you have done with not definition of what is unfit and not description of this unfitness and comparison to previous considered unfit presidents.    Fill it in.
Bill H. Added Apr 18, 2017 - 11:59am
Gregory - Many of Trump's voter base will simply continue to support and defend him even if he tweets us into WWIII (which almost appears inevitable at this time). It is pretty much useless to try and use examples or even reason with them. One WB Trump supporter once justified his support based on how "manly and macho" Trump presented himself, forgetting that we were electing a President, not a Championship Wrestling "superstar".
We have seen this in past history as many populations have fallen under the spell of what we later found were crazed dictators or psychopaths.
I will admit that the last election certainly did not serve up any ideal candidates, but hopefully even the diehard Trump supporters are beginning to notice that he is not a man of his word and is only making moves to protect his ego and assure the continued and increased fortunes for the "Trump Empire" and his business associates.
Ironically, the ones who will be hurt the most will be his faithful voter base.

WW3 was inevitable whoever got appointed/elected/coronated.  It must happen to cover the imminent collapse. Look for it to happen before S. Korea votes soon.

More truth than poetry Bill H.
Mike Haluska Added Apr 18, 2017 - 3:43pm
Bill H -
Have you EVER condemned a President's performance (other than Trump) in office before he was inaugurated and in the first 100 days?  He has managed to get American corporations to invest in America again in terms of jobs and capital - and what I hear from you is crap like "it wasn't 30,000 jobs, it was ONLY 27,543 jobs!  This is welcome and refreshing after 8 years of Obama whistling as millions of high-paying manufacturing jobs left the country or ceased to exist. 
 
Personally, I didn't like Trump before he ran for office.  I NEVER saw a single episode of his TV show.  I never read any of his negotiation books (although I heard good things from people that did read them).  I just know in my heart of hearts that we desperately need to get the country back on track and run like a business.  The only way that will happen is if the establishment Dems & Reps are challenged and beaten.  When I saw that establishment Democrats AND Republicans not only dismissed him but despised him - I knew that he was NOT establishment! 
 
I am appealing to your sense of fairness and objectivity - give the guy a chance.  Yes, he's egomaniacal at times and yes he has a lot of money.  But he earned his money in the private sector and employs lots of people - not by pulling favors for rich donors like the establishment politicians. 
Think about what he had to overcome to win the election:
- the other 17 establishment Republican Presidential candidates 
- almost every incumbent Republican and Democratic politician
- the Mainstream Media (TV, Radio, Newspaper, Magazines, Websites)
- the Clinton Machine (their opponents get "suicidal" frequently)  
- the Bush Machine
- Hollywood & Pop Culture
 
Name ONE other person who could have withstood an 18 month long, 24 hour/day constant barrage like Trump did - and STILL DOES.  It can't be fun or profitable, the only reason he does it is because he loves America.
 
I know the people who turned out to his Rallies and voted for him and his message.  They're smart, honest, hard-working people whose kids go off to fight in stupid wars . . . and they know that they're getting royally screwed by an elite group of jerks who never earned an honest dollar in their lives.  They're tired of being ignored, watching their industries disappear, their homes taken away, etc. while being told that they're "not paying their fair share".
 
Please - filter the noise and try and at least give him credit for accomplishing what he says he would.  Would it kill you for you to be wrong about Trump and a lot of ordinary Americans get their chance at the American Dream back?
 
  
Bill H. Added Apr 18, 2017 - 5:28pm
 
Mike - I hope I am wrong, but I have and still believe he is out for himself and really never expected to get elected in the first place. So far it has been a comedy of errors, but for our sake I hope he gets a glimmer of reality, gets with the program, and doesn't get us into WWIII (but at this point, it seems inevitable).
Mike Haluska Added Apr 18, 2017 - 6:28pm
 Bill H - Thank you for clarifying your position.  If he keeps getting companies to invest in America and puts people back to work that will fix a lot of problems that stem from unemployment like no health insurance, welfare state, etc.
Leroy Added Apr 18, 2017 - 6:41pm
I blame presidents Clinton to O for bringing us to the brink of WW3.  They chamberlain'ed us to this point. 
 
O is directly responsible for the mess in Syria.  He effectively gave Iran the bomb.  He sodomized Lybia. 
 
Now Trump has to solve this mess, or, at least he is trying.
 
The Chamberlains of the world kick the can down the road hoping the crap doesn't hit the fan on their watch while congratulating themselves for negotiating a false peace.  They have loosed yet another monster on the world, this time one with nuclear toys.
 
I am similar.  I prefer to tackle a problem head-on rather than letting it simmer.  It causes conflict but usually works out for the best.  Trump has called the North Korean's bluff.  The stakes are high--nuclear war.  Maybe North Korea holds a full house of nukes.  Maybe not.  It's time to show'em or fold'em.
 
Clinton, Bush, and O got us here.  The only question is whether Trump can save us.

Gregory.
You cannot respond to me because you live in a delusional world of your own creation! If you had Trumps Tax returns, you wouldn't understand them anyway. His son explained why he doesn't release them! They are 107 pages long, under audit by a hostile IRS that discriminates against right wing groups, and their delusion is that Trump is Right Wing, while the Right wing votes against his Medical reforms.
Your anti-American MSM would keep the news full of stupid questions as to why did he take this deduction, or why did he partner with a Russian investor. The Job of being President has enough distractions, without constant bombardment of why he did something before he was President.
If Trump did not answer every stupid/fabricated question, he would be accused of hiding something or conspiracy with Russia.
 
I think I will make this an article, as you are totally lost in Socialist Dogma, and will not respond. How Stupid!
EXPAT Added Apr 18, 2017 - 7:54pm
Yes. I fled Obama's Socialist Republic. I was tired of Government telling me how to live. If police weren't watching every move I made, Surveillance camera's were recoding every where I go. MY Tax Returns were under audit and they assumed I had made $100,000 more than I did, so they confiscated my Retirement checks (Didn't know they could do that, did you?)
 
Just because I don't let you look in my Wallet, doesn't mean I am hiding something. It means it is none of your damn business!
Gregory S. McNeill Added Apr 18, 2017 - 9:54pm
Expat, its the American people's right to know! You are acting like a dictator and bully whom Trump is. What is the matter with revealing his taxes? That proves that he is a liar and not trustworthy since he will not reveal his tax returns.
Gregory S. McNeill Added Apr 18, 2017 - 10:00pm

Leroy -
The dynamite has always been in-place in these areas. Dynamite gets unstable with age.
Trump is simply lighting the fuse.
EXPAT Added Apr 19, 2017 - 12:48am
OK Gregory. Since you didn't understand my comment about Democrats making the Trump Presidency all about old business deals and preventing any discussion about current events. I will write a fictional account for you.
 
The Daily Bullshit Times received a copy of POTUS Tax Returns today.
It showed on page 55 that he lost $5 million on a piscoteria in Venezuela.
This is clear proof that Billionaire Trump makes bad business decisions.
His failure to respond proves he is incompetent in business as well as running the country!
 
Huffy Puffy found that a Mutual fund with Russian investors financed Ivanka Trumps new line of ladies underwear. Her husband was also known to be sniffing around her test area. This Russian connection cannot be denied.
 
Daily Kos asked Trump if he paid for prostitutes while on a trip to Columbia listed as a business expense on his 2015 return obtained by KOS.
His lifting of his Middle Finger, was a clear admission of guilt.
 
Trump refuses to answer legitimate questions about his 2015 returns, insisting he is busy with, health care, Tax Reform and Defense issues.
His refusal to answer Legitimate questions about lies told for profit in the past, requires a special prosecutor to demand all records of Trump and his Cabinet, with Impeachment the ultimate Goal.
Meanwhile Ayatollah Iwearjammies stated "Why should I talk to Trump? His own Country says he is an illegitimate President, soon to be removed.
 
Do you now understand that that demanding Tax records is a diversion from the issues of the day?  
 
EXPAT Added Apr 19, 2017 - 1:14am
Yes. I am talking down to you, and I don't like it.
Why don't you offer a real question such as ; "What is Trump's plan to reduce crime in Inner city black areas'."
Or how will Trump help black unwed mothers 70% of births in ghetto.
 
I just can't take the idiocy of what has replaced the Democratic Party seriously, and I refuse to call them Snowflakes

"Expat, its the American people's right to know!"
 
No they don't, no more than they have the right to know what is in your tax returns.  Why don't you publish your tax returns?  Oh.  It's too personal.  Exactly.  What you call a right is nothing more than a tradition.  I can only guess how it got started.  On the surface, it is to allow the American people to vet their choice of president.  News flash: the election is over.  Trump was elected.  Publishing his tax records no longer serve its purpose.  Your purpose is to find something to hang him by.  If I were him, I would not give you the rope to hang me by.
Mike Haluska Added Apr 19, 2017 - 11:25am
I don't understand this insistence that people "show their tax returns".  It reminds me of people who are "proud" that they are poor and live in the 'hood - as if that is some sort of accomplishment! 
Thomas Sutrina Added Apr 19, 2017 - 1:17pm
Never got my comparison of Trump to other presidents that are considered failures.  The most recent member of that list is Jimmy Carter.  Did not expect Gregory would back up his article with facts.  As I said earlier his first issue, the cost of his son completing school in New York was meaningless entry in the budget of the nation.  And his second issue, that not a candidate since 1790 did not campaign with a vision for the country.  Now Gregory may have preferred Hillary's vision but the nation voted for Trump's vision.  
 
So Gregory did not have one legitimate argument since he has not backed up this third issue and the first two are dismantled.
 
Trump is a different president.  He is the only president that has not lived off the public dole.   So we do not need to see his income tax statement to use to determine if he has an income that comes from lobbyist as a means of receiving special consideration, basically kick backs.  
 
You know Gregory the reason former president Bill Clinton started the Clinton foundation and why both Bill and Hillary made outrageous expensive speeches.  And why donors to the foundation got access to then Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton.  
 
No body says anything to an audience worth the cost of hearing from the founders of the Clinton Foundation.  If the speeches were broadcast across the nation and the world one could argue that such a large audience would be worth the price.  We have seen the value of the Olympics and the beauty pageants draw audiences of this value to advertisers.  But the audience they spoke to wanted favors from the US governments.  Those audiences were associated with lobbyist in Washington.

If Trump changed his mind and decided to open his tax records up for total inspection, would you diehard Trump supporters then applaud him for it?
Or would you insist that he keep them under wraps?
Thomas Sutrina Added Apr 19, 2017 - 4:56pm
Bill H., as I said Trump prior to becoming president didn't get funds from lobbyist of passing legislation.  Most went into the coffers for funding their and other campaign.  We also know that Representative are not charged with using the knowledge of gained from legislation for personal gain.  Pelosi's husband profited from federal funding of the Bart system for example.  How Bill has many congressmen retire wealth.  This includes Reed and Bill Clinton.
 
So Bill H., I have good reason to demand if a candidate is getting wealth by dealing in providing special interest to crony capitalist.  Trump has not participated in sucking up the gravy.  At best he was a lobbyist, the other side.

Expat, I have done my serve to Humanity and still do. Have you spent time with helping Children in Foster Care, work at a Homeless Shelter, or as a Volunteer helping those to receive their GED? I have. What have you done other than leave America during the Obama years? Do you honestly think that jobs will return under Trump? They are leaving America! The Coal Industry is dead and proven to cause Cancer! It is time for Coal Workers to start learning new job skills.
Leroy: It is people's right to know about Trump's taxes. He is gambling with people's lives and money with his recklessness. He has been bankrupt more than 4 times!! What has happened to the people who had worked under him when  those companies when under? They became unemployed!!
Thomas: Trump is a different President, but he is for The Rich, not for you and me! Jeffery Gilbert, Hillary's emails isn't the issue; It is Trump's unwillingness to reveal his taxes to the public. It was okay for him to humiliate President Obama to prove that he is an American citizen but Trump is silent about his taxes? That proves that Trump is a hypocrite!

Bravo on expressing your opinion on an incompetent president.
 
Although many of Mr T.'s followers will try their best to dissuade you from expressing your personal opinion their rhetoric is a lot of loud mouthed, ill thought out hyperbole based on "fake news" -- the president's.
 
Trump has done nothing to help out the working man but has only lined his deep pockets with kickbacks and payoffs from foreign nationals who desperately need his support and the might of the United States to fend off an insane foreign leader.
 
His slogan of Making America Great Again pertains more to his daughter, the lovely and always polite Ivanka, who through partonage and nepotism has managed to get her fashion line into the Chinese market.
 
The loud mouthed and opinionated Trump followers are placing their lives in the hands of a man who is a  proven outright liar, con man, bunko artist and egotist.
 
I urge you to keep writing your articles, index them for future use and then when Trump and his family are finally impeached and imprisoned you will have the proof positive that your way of thinking was the correct one to mainatin and profess.
 
The fact that you are a man of color should not detract from the wisdom, clarity and subjective opinions you are expressing.

It will eventually surface anyway.
You know and I know that if he didn't have anything to hide, he would have released his taxes immediately after the "audit" as he promised to do.
But then again, we can't trust this guy for a minute.
Thomas Sutrina Added Apr 19, 2017 - 9:09pm
Bill H., what I do know is that the media is out to get Trump and someone is paying the black clothed thugs to destroy property and fight with anyone for Trump or Conservatives.  We know from Viratus video that Hillary, DNC, and major contributors to the Democratic party paid for organizers to disrupt the Republican presidential campaign.  So it is likely those major contributors may also support the thugs.  
 
Why would anyone give an ammunition to an enemy?  
 
So Bill tell me why in this atmosphere of the opposition.  Rumors that they wanting to impeach Trump.  So why would anyone give them any information?   Come on Bill make a compelling argument more then the fact that politicians running for another political office chose to provide their tax statements
Gerry Charb Added Apr 19, 2017 - 9:23pm
I can answer your daunting question without hesittion Thomas.
 
Mr Trump may have deep connections to the Russian mafia and former KGB cronnies who have helped him carve his way into that countires inner circles.
 
He keeps echoing the fact that his taxes are "under audit" but the real reason my gullible friend may be deeper than that. A mere internal audit of regular polticians should not or does not last forever.
 
The average tax payer balks at the idea of baring his soul to the tax man but does it grudgingly. Trymp who believes he is the United States of America selectively filters information about himself that he feels will not tarnish the image he wants out there.
 
Mt Trump 's checkered and secretive past, his many holdings in Russia and even his marriage to a Russian woman all are suspect.
 
Perhaps Thomas, may I call you Thomas, your love affair with the president is tainted by romantic notions of the "self made" millionaire being a "selfless humanirtatian posing as a normal human being but lacking any semblance of a prson of character, intelligence or conscience.
 
Why not man up and quit harassing this man because he has the guts to state how he feels about a governmental employee. Yes Thomas the prez is our employee.

Bill H. Added Apr 19, 2017 - 10:28pm
 
Any politician who is half way honest and has nothing to hide either voluntarily offers their tax information or would at least offer it if asked to.
I guarantee Trump wants very badly to keep some highly controversial information (or information that would get him kicked out of office) away from not only the public eye, but those in his administration and other wings of government that sink his ship immediately.
The distractions will continue. It appears that the next distraction will result in the loss of many innocent lives.

Leroy you are pathetic. Trump is a bully and liar. We aren't discussing Hillary Clinton or Obama. What I am saying is true! Trump isn't entitled to respect! During the campaign, he has insulted Women, People of Color, and Muslims! He has not apologized at all! Trump has no humility. 
You cannot expect Unity from a man with a history of Racism dating back to 1972 when the US Government sued the Trump Organization for racial discrimination. That is true, not an "Alternative fact".
Thomas Sutrina Added Apr 20, 2017 - 8:36am
Gerry the optimum word is MAY HAVE.  The FBI, CIA, NSA through intercepts and other means have continuously said no collusion occurred.  We do know that 1/4 of USA stockpile of plutonium was sold by Clinton to Russia.  That Gerry is a fact.  It is a fact that Hillary on National TV told the world the Nuclear Response time which is a top secret.  
 
And Trump runs a corporation so the real money to due and deal is through the corporation not his personal income tax.  That corporation is public so the books for foreign deals ins public knowledge already.
 
I supported Ted Cruz not Donald Trump in the primary and obviously when the choice was between Hillary or Donald I chose Donald.

It's all relevant, Gregory.  You are assassinating Trump's character.   I'll be the first to say that I am not a big fan of Trump.  It was a selection of the lesser evil.  I would rather have Trump in office with all his flaws than Clinton with all her flaws and possible criminal activity.  You can denigrate Trump all you want and you might even be right on some of it, but he was still better than the alternative. 
 
Clinton is a bully and a tyrant and an accomplished liar.  She sold out the US to the highest bidder.  She compromised the security of the US.  She covered for O to get him re-elected.

So far Trump's domestic agenda is going and will go nowhere.  He is getting a rude awakening of how Washington works and how both parties play their part in order to serve their true masters, the elites of business, finance, the military and big pharma.  I don't see Trump smarter than these guys.  They have taken over the government while getting the silly population to blame the "others." 
William Hill Added Apr 20, 2017 - 12:27pm
Couldn't agree more, George, this administration is like most others, all smoke and mirrors to hide their hidden agenda - to reward their financial backers and to, in turn, be further rewarded themselves once out of office.

Mike Halusa, you are deflecting from the real issues. Trump is the real bully not Gloria Steinem or Reverend Jackson! Steinem and Jackson aren't the issues, its Trump. I suggest you read up on why Affirmative Action and Women's Rights are important because if this nation claims to love freedom and equality, it needs to act like it. Trump only cares about money, power, anf himself. 
Gregory S. McNeill Added Apr 21, 2017 - 11:34am
Leroy, Trump had hurt his own character by himself. I am stating the facts which people like yourself ignore. This man loves power not people. He lacks new ideas and a vision for the future of our nation. 
Trump isn't better at all. The jobs are leaving America because of this man's arrogance and condescending behavior. What about doing away with the regulations created by Obama to prevent another financial crash which happened 9 years ago?  Trump has a history of bankruptcy and the next crash will be worse. Say what you will about Clinton. Our nation had prospered financially and unemployment was down. Trump has nothing to offer America but use the presidency to make himself more richer at the expense of the American people.

Gregory - Jesse Jackson made a living out of being a "race bully".  For the better part of 3 decades, Jesse Jackson went from one corporate executive to the next with various extortion schemes.  The most famous was his "Rainbow Coalition" newsletter scam where he would shake down corporations for "donations" - threatening them with staged protests if they didn't make big $$ "donations".
 
Thank God him and his corrupt kid finally got the fate they deserved and are irrelevant losers begging for government assistance. 
Gregory S. McNeill Added Apr 22, 2017 - 12:58am
Mike Haluska, why bring up Reverend Jackson? He isn't the issue nor the term "Race bully". You have proven that you don't want to deal with the real issue that is presented in this post.

Sorry Greg.  What is the message to Trump supporters?
 
Considering that now he has 53% approval rating in America, across all political divides, he seems to have a majority of approval.  What message would you now give to the majority of Americans who now approve of his short 3 months in office?
Thanks and cheers
Thomas Sutrina Added Apr 24, 2017 - 9:43pm
Greg this is the message that the Democrats have not heard.  Trump is not the best choice but following the path that Democrats have created since 1932 was less acceptable.  Citizens have been very slow in seeing the collapse of society.  Obama used the FDR play book that delayed the depression recovery for 7 years.   And the citizens realized that Hillary could finish the Fabian Socialist process to become  the USSR or Venezuela.
 
Greg a Black economist presents the basic problem for any political party.  It really applies to everyone, but for this article his subject is black condition in the USA.   Williams says, "The bulk of today's problems for many blacks are a result of politicians and civil rights organizations using government in the name of helping blacks when in fact they are serving the purposes of powerful interest groups."

Since 1936 Democrats controlled BOTH house from 1955 until 1980 (26 continuous years) and 1935-1946, 1951-1952, 1987-1994, and 2007-2010 (a total of 50 years). Democrats have held the majority in the House of Representative from 1950 until 1994 ( 44 years). and both Congress and White House 1934 to 1946, 1950 to 1952, 1960 to 1968, 1976 to 1980, 1992 to 1994, and 2008 to 2010 (a total of 32 years)
GOP controlled both houses 1946 to 1948, 1994 to 2000, 2002 to 2006, and 2014 to 2016 (14 years) and the GOP only controlled Congress and the White House from 2002 to 2006 (4 years), the term of George W. Bush. And now Trump's first term from 2016 to 2018 then ?

The above control of government Greg shows we live under  laws are the creation of the Democrats.  One of the reason the GOP has not repealed ACA is because Ryan and the leadership of the GOP gain from ACA also.  The Conservatives are throw backs to the Lincoln GOP wing.  
 
Statistics from the ’90s: The University of Washington showed that an increase of roughly $200 a month in welfare benefits per family correlated with a 150% increase in the illegitimate birth rate among teens. and David Elwood of Harvard University found that of the 3.8 million families currently on AFDC (Aid to Families with Dependent Children), well over half will remain dependent or more than 10 years, many others for 15 years or longer. ... As benefits swelled, welfare came to serve as a substitute for a breadwinner husband
at home through the marginalization of the men who had heretofore headed those families.
Ref: http://blog.heartland.org/2014/01/lbjsgreatsocietyprogramsatthecoreofnationspoverty/
 
William on "Stossel" Fox Business said, “[T]he welfare state has done to black Americans what slavery could not have done, the harshest Jim Crow laws and racism could not have done, namely break up the black family,” Williams said. “That is, today, just slightly over 30% of black kids live in two parent families. Historically, from 1870s on up to about 1940s, and depending on the city, 75 to 90% of black kids lived in two parent families. Illegitimacy rate is 70%  among blacks where that is unprecedented in our history.”

So why do we have the inner cities to begin with? Again we must start with FDR. That too is not an accident. Richard Rothstein tells Fresh Air's Terry Gross. "It was not the unintended effect of benign policies," he says. "It was an explicit, racially purposeful policy that was pursued at all levels of government, and that's the reason we have these ghettos today and we are reaping the fruits of those policies." "New Deal's Public Works Administration led to the creation of segregated ghettos. Its policy was that public housing could be used only to house people of the same race as the neighborhood in which it was located, but, in fact, most of the public housing that was built in the early years was built in integrated neighborhoods, which they razed and then built segregated public housing in those neighborhoods. So public housing created racial segregation where none existed before. ... The second policy, which was probably even more effective in segregating metropolitan areas, was the Federal Housing Administration, which financed mass production builders of subdivisions starting in the '30s to '50s. [T]hey guaranteed loans at lower interest rates for banks that the developers could use to build these subdivisions on the condition that no homes in those subdivisions be sold to African-Americans."

Whittaker Chambers ... worked in the American Communist underground for most of the 1930s. ... What shocked Chambers was that he recognized for the first time that the New Deal was far more than a reform movement. It was “a genuine revolution, whose deepest purpose was not simply reform within existing traditions, but a basic change in the social, and, above all, the power relationships within the nation.”

This “revolution” was not taking the same form as the Bolshevik Revolution in Russia, but its effect was just as sinister:
It was not a revolution by violence. It was a revolution by bookkeeping and lawmaking. In so far as it was successful, the power of politics had replaced the power of business. This is the basic power shift of all the revolutions of our time. This shift was the revolution. ... Chambers Testifying before the House Committee on Un-American Activities. ...
 
Some things don’t change: we are still undergoing a revolution by bookkeeping and lawmaking, and we continue to hear the snarls of “witch hunt” whenever this revolution is challenged." Ref: http://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2010/05/22/whittaker-chambers-the-new-deal-as-revolution/
 
Chambers was describing Fabian Socialism. "Barack Obama is a Fabian socialist. ... Fabians believed in gradual nationalization of the economy through manipulation of the democratic process. Breaking away from the violent revolutionary socialists of their day, they thought that the only real way to effect “fundamental change” and “social justice” was through a mass movement of the working classes presided over by intellectual and cultural elites.
 
A quick review of the socialist takeovers in Venezuela in 1999, Spain in 2004 and Italy in 2006 show the same pattern–equity markets do most of their plummeting before the Chavez’s of the world take power. Investors anticipate the policy shift in advance; that’s their job." Ref: https://www.forbes.com/2008/11/03/obama-fabian-socialist-oped-cx_jb_1103bowyer.html
 
So look at what is happening in Venezuela today. In 2012 Chavez took the guns away from citizens saying as Democrats argue crime will decrease. But in increased because criminals do not turn in their guns. And with the economy collapse worse then the USSR people are in food lines and marching in the streets to return to pre Chavez government. The present dictator has mobilized party members and armed them.

Wow, I had no idea this was so hotly debated..lol.
Trump people, I wish I truly do that I could find just one valid thing in what you are saying.  Just one.  You cannot take Social Security away for the disabled and elderly or healthcare because a slim margin of people prefer a Wall or continued War over life and death issues domestically.  Your candidate ran on domestic issues and he hasnt lived up to 99% of them so far.  Now it is early..so we need to give him some opportunity.
 
He has had many firsts which I have had to question, not in a good way.
 
But to be fair we have had other Presidents with some control issues and also maybe a learning curve or two.
 
But I have to say his staff is the worst...except perhaps his military people.  However he doesnt control them. He has a pick here and there that isnt horrible...but most remain are not great in track record and it remains to be sen what the outcome will be.
