Republicans Are Bringing Back Their Plan to Gut Social Security and Medicare

A new budget proposal for the 2024 fiscal year makes sweeping cuts.

https://hern.house.gov/uploadedfiles/202306141135_fy24_rsc_budget_prin
t_final_c.pdf


The proposed 2024 Republican budget includes efforts to:

• Cut Social Security and Medicare

• Make Trump’s tax cuts for the top 1 percent permanent

• Impose work requirements on “all federal benefit programs,” like food stamps and Medicare

• Extend work requirements on those aged 55-64

• Bring back all of Trump’s deregulations, including the weakening of environmental protection.

And that’s just a taste of their hopes and dreams. But don’t mistake it all as just wish-casting: “The RSC Budget is more than just a financial statement. It is a statement of priorities,” the party assures in the document.

"I am. How did you know?" said the man.

"Because everything you told me is technically correct, but the information is useless, and I'm still lost. Frankly, you've been no help,” the woman replied.

"You must be a Republican,” answered the man.

"Yes. How did you know?" she said.

Republican lawmakers around the country are moving quickly to remake higher education in their conservative vision. About 76 percent of conservative Republicans said colleges affect the country negatively.

Higher education outside of STEM is little more than 4 or more extra years of Liberal indoctrination that start kids off with debt they'll never pay off and a lifetime of wage-slavery.

Nothing more. Nothing less.

The writers at Vox are great examples of this fact.

Biden Baffles US Audience, Closing Speech With 'God Save The Queen'


I laughed out loud when I read this! Seems Biden* is even further from reality than his handlers.

This poor, senile man should be allowed privacy as he declines, not propped up behind a microphone and required to speak. Yanno, put him in a fancy-looking office, have him dress up for 'work' every day, have attendants call him 'Mr President' and ask his opinion on world matters just so he feels like he's still in charge, and pay no attention to him outside of that.

I can't imagine how the DNC imagines that he can run for President. They've already nixed debates, I'm sure they'll limit RFK's social media exposure, they're doing their best to jail Trump, jigger the polls, and they might even have boxes of absentee ballots already printed up but MOST people know he's not fit for office. If Biden* 'wins', you'll see widespread disbelief at best and outright rebellion at worst.

Pro-Trump Pastor Suggests Christians Should Be Suicide Bombers For Trump

A Christian pastor who supports Donald Trump recently delivered a sermon urging Christians to strengthen their passion and suggested they should be willing to die for their faith.

Regeneration Nashville pastor Kent Christmas has often spoken favorably of Trump, who is running his third presidential campaign and is the clear front-runner among a crowded field of GOP candidates. In last Sunday's sermon at his Pentecostal church in Tennessee, Christmas said the Muslim faith has become so successful because its followers are "willing to die for their beliefs."

The video was first reported by watchdog group Right Wing Watch, which tweeted the clip on Tuesday.

In it, Christmas is seen preaching vehemently as he paces the stage.

"You want to know why the Muslim faith has had its advancements? It's because the Muslims were willing to die for their beliefs. They were willing to strap bombs to their chest," he said.

Christmas then asked God to give the Christian faith some men and women with passion in their spirit who are willing to "lay down [their] life for the Gospel."

Newsweek reached out to Regeneration Nashville by email for comment.

Pro-Trump pastors have delivered thunderous sermons for years, often following the former president's rhetoric and preaching that the nation has been seized by "witchcraft." Trump often asserts on his Truth Social platform that the federal government is conducting a witch hunt against him, particularly after the Justice Department launched investigations into his handling of classified documents and his actions leading up to the January 6, 2021, Capitol riot.

The first case recently brought an indictment that charges Trump with 37 felony counts. He is accused of mishandling sensitive presidential records by taking them after leaving office and then obstructing the government's efforts to get them back. Trump is the first former president to face federal charges, which he pleaded not guilty to during his arraignment this week.

Recently, Christmas doubled down on a purported prophecy that he said showed Trump is the rightful president despite President Joe Biden's election victory in 2020.

"In the eyes of God, the president of the United States right now in the courts of justice in Heaven is not Joe Biden but it's Donald Trump," Christmas said in a May 15 clip on Twitter shared by Right Wing Watch.

Michael Ferguson, a political strategist with PoliticalVIP, told Newsweek that Christian leaders may support Trump because they admire what the former president has accomplished, such as attracting major crowds and his ability to inspire his supporters.

"He created a movement back in 2015 and 2016 which has essentially stayed with him to this day, and his strongest supporters have been very loyal to Trump regardless of positive or negative events connected to him," Ferguson said. "Politically, Trump has been quite supportive of the Christian right, and so this certainly adds to why some Christian leaders may be attracted to helping him succeed."

Ferguson added that other GOP presidential candidates may be more aligned with Republican Christian voters, such as Mike Pence, but the former vice president "lacks the appeal and firebrand that Trump has."

"For some pastors, they may see in Trump what they hope they could be for their faith and feel partnering with him could prove to be most beneficial for them," Ferguson said.

Right Wing Watch's report about last Sunday's sermon said that Christmas was infuriated over what he falsely said was legislation approved in Vermont that makes it legal to "kill a baby" up to 21 days after a full-term birth.

"I am at war with evil," Christmas said in his sermon. "This is one preacher that is not backing down. I can tell you this: I will give my life for the Gospel."

He then asked God to provide other Christians who are willing to do the same.

Trump said “I Am the Only One”: Trump’s Messianic 2024 Message

The master of fear and anger takes another dark political turn.

By Susan B. Glasser, June 15, 2023

The Republican political consultant Richard Berman is something of a legend, often credited with taking the art of negative campaigning on behalf of undisclosed corporate clients to the next level. When “60 Minutes” did a profile of him, in 2007, he was portrayed as the “Dr. Evil” of the Washington influence game. More than a decade later, when I visited his office in downtown D.C., he still had a tongue-in-cheek “Dr. Evil” nameplate on his desk. (“If they call you Mr. Nice Guy, would that be better?” he asked me. “I don’t think so.”) Berman devised an acronym to capture his firm’s aggressive approach to politics: flagsfear, love, anger, greed, and sympathy. Of those, he believed, anger and fear were undoubtedly the most effective.

I’ve often thought of Berman’s formula while watching the descending spiral of American politics in the past few years. It’s not all that complicated, unfortunately: fear and anger, peddled by a skilled demagogue like Donald Trump, have captivated a large segment of the Republican electorate. Other politicians, recognizing Trump’s appeal, also increasingly eschew love, sympathy, and even greed in favor of this simpler and more straightforward approach. The 2024 G.O.P. primary is shaping up as a veritable stew of hatreds, with the candidates raising alarms about everyone from scary trans activists to marauding migrants and “woke” radical-left Communists.

Entire books could be written about you, Signym, starting with your deliberate misquoting of Henry Kissinger. Signym, you get everything inside out and backwards, but you won't stop: https://www.barrypopik.com/index.php/new_york_city/entry/it_may_be_dan
gerous_to_be_americas_enemy_but_to_be_americas_friend_is_fatal


Despite what Trump says, America has always been great so it doesn't need to be made great, again. But America does have millions of extraordinarily bad people, who have an antipathy to being great. One historic example was the millions of traitors/slave-owners who formed the Confederate States of America. Those murdering, raping, lying, slave-owning Confederates insisted they were the very flower of American excellence. They were wrong and were forced into poverty after the Civil War because they were evil people. They deserved far worse punishment, but they didn't get it because slave-owning President Andrew Johnson pardoned them. These murderers had a hero, General Robert E Lee, who just so happens to have two schools with his name in the town I live, Baytown Texas. The Trump voters in Baytown do not see what is evil about naming schools after a mass-murderer/traitor/slave-owner, which is why it is completely unsurprising when these defective people, these Trump voters, do NOT prosper in America. They don't deserve to prosper. Think of drunk 6ix. He didn't prosper and every sorry thing that happened to him was just deserts. Think of the Trumptards that cheat and end up divorced and going bankrupt. Think of Trump. He is getting the punishment that he deserves because he is even more rotten than 6ix. For people who are rotten inside, be they Confederates or Trumptards, getting the shit kicked out them by decent Americans is just deserts.

Signym, Russia did interfere in the 2016 election. Signym, stop spreading nonsense about Trump/Russia/Collusion. Russia put Trump in the White House with the help of the rotten Americans who name schools after General Robert E Lee and see nothing wrong with doing that or with Russia interfering with American elections.

Trump explains why he was treated worse than Abraham Lincoln — who was assassinated

For the second weekend in a row, Fox host Mark Levin continued showing videos of his conversation with Donald Trump. Among the things Trump thought the Fox audience needed to know is that he was treated worse than Abraham Lincoln, who was killed before leaving office.

Trump began by saying that former President Andrew Jackson was treated very badly after he broke previous treaties, stole land, and forced the march of Native Americans to "Indian Territory." That land was then taken from the Native tribes and became known as Oklahoma.

"Abraham Lincoln, they say, was, you know, he had a civil war going on," Trump educated Levin. "But Abraham Lincoln was just vilified. But now they say Trump got treated the worst of all."

He never explained who "they" were.

"Because what they did was come up with phony stuff. Russia, Russia, Russia. It was all hoaxes. The Mueller witch hunt, which turned out to be 'no collusion.'"

That isn't what Mueller found. He never looked into Trump's potential collusion with Russia. What he did document were at least ten instances of obstruction of justice, which Trump has never been tried over.

"And they had the laptop, they could have figured that out because on the laptop, if you look at it, you could have figured that out easily," Trump said.

It's unclear what he was talking about, as there was never a "laptop" that belonged to Trump that was part of the Mueller probe. It's possible that it was classified information, but it never made it into the Mueller report. He might be confused about the laptop that was just seized from his staffer involved in the classified documents scandal.

Lincoln was reelected in his second bid for president, unlike Trump. It was the following year that he was shot by actor John Wilkes Booth.

Your guy won through en-masse mail in ballot fraud and ballot harvesting.

Look at everything that's happened here and worldwide since, Ted.

I'm the one doing the laughing here. Not you.

Woke is dying. The people have finally come out of their slumber and are shutting down Leftist indoctrination on every level. This never would have happened if Joe* didn't win* the 2020 election and wreck the world economy.

A great current example: It's June 18th, and I haven't heard People of the Pride by Coldplay a single time yet, when it was INESCAPABLE on every radio station every hour last year for the entire month of June.



The difference between you and I Ted, besides the 80 or so IQ points in my favor is that I'm enjoying life either way. All you did for 4 fucking years is complain about everything, and 2.5 years after your guy won you still complain about everything and jerk off to the idea of Trump going to jail.

Meanwhile, find one single thread where I complain that Hillary should be thrown in jail still. I'm sure that I've said it a few times here or there as a throwaway comment, but you post about it a dozen times a day because you're a fucking lunatic who made his politics his entire existence. You are sick in the head.



And sure... Joe* and his son should be in jail too, but I know how the game is rigged and the entire apparatus is behind the Biden* family and it will never happen, so I don't cry about it every day or make tick tock threads to nowhere and bitch and moan because I'm not a little fucking baby like you are.

ROBERT COSTA: Would he put the country at risk if he was in the White House again?

FMR. ATTORNEY GENERAL BARR: He will always put his own interests, and gratifying his own ego, ahead of everything else, including the country’s interest, there’s no question about it. This is a perfect example of that. He’s like, you know, he’s like a nine year old, defiant nine year old kid who’s always pushing the glass toward the edge of the table, defying his parents to stop him from doing it. It’s a means of self assertion and exerting his dominance over other people. And he’s a very petty individual who will always put his interests ahead of the country’s, his personal gratification of his, you know, his ego, but our country- our country can’t, you know, can’t be a therapy session for you know, a troubled man like this.

Republican loyalty to Trump veers into “authoritarian bargain”

To the surprise of no one, Trump’s second federal indictment reinforced Republican loyalty to the now twice indicted, twice impeached former president.

What Is Fascism?

A century of attempts to define and whitewash Fascism

by Ruth Ben-Ghiat, Dec 7, 2022

Are you confused about the meaning of Fascism? If so, you're not alone. Benito Mussolini, the creator of Fascism, famously did not define it until 1932. With Nazis once again making news in America and a neo-Fascist as Italian head of state, I thought it was a good time to offer you an excerpt of an essay I wrote for a German publication on how the meaning of Fascism has changed over a century. I hope you find it useful.

_______________

“Everyone is sure they know what Fascism is,” writes Robert Paxton in his 2004 work The Anatomy of Fascism. Paxton gives perhaps the most comprehensive definition I have found, collapsing into one very long sentence many traits of Fascism:

“Fascism may be defined as a form of political behavior marked by obsessive preoccupation with community decline, humiliation, or victim-hood and by compensatory cults of unity, energy, and purity, in which a mass-based party of committed nationalist militants, working in uneasy but effective collaboration with traditional elites, abandons democratic liberties and pursues with redemptive violence and without ethical or legal restraints goals of internal cleansing and external expansion.”

The Jan. 6 coup attempt changed Paxton's mind about whether Donald Trump and Trumpism can be called Fascist. That brought Paxton into line with scholars such as Jason Stanley, who deems Fascism “a political method” that can appear anytime, anywhere, if conditions are right. This line of thought risks emptying the term of its historical specificity but is essential for understanding our new authoritarian age and the risks we face in America today.

Trump has long kept the Fascist flame burning in America. He started his 2016 campaign by retweeting a racist meme from the Nazi outlet The Daily Stormer (the publication of Andrew Anglin, whose Twitter account has just been restored by Elon Musk).

Trump brought Mussolini admirer and far-right operative Steve Bannon into the White House to launch his own “revolution of reaction.” In 2017 his administration gave Holocaust deniers a big gift: a Holocaust Remembrance Day statement that made no mention of Jews.

The GOP politicians who now feign outrage at Trump's association with Nazis such as Nick Fuentes had no problem with his mainstreaming of extremism, perhaps because some of them are extremists themselves (Paul Gosar and Marjorie Taylor Greene have appeared with Fuentes).

It’s time to accept that the GOP, which was complicit with Trump's Jan. 6 attempted authoritarian takeover, has become a party that furthers Fascist values and practices. That means the hate crimes that have skyrocketed in America since 2016 will likely continue to expand.

However we define Fascism, remembering that its essence is violence is more important than ever.

Donald Trump, who claimed to only hire the best people, was thoroughly asked why so many key players of his administration do not want him to be president again.

• Donald Trump appeared on Fox News with anchor Bret Baier on Monday.

• Baier reminded Trump he said he was going to hire the "best" people to his administration in 2016.

• He then pointed out much of Trump's former administration doesn't support his 2024 White House bid.

Baier then pointed out to the former president that many of those "best and most serious people" no longer support him:

This time, your Vice President Mike Pence is running against you. Your ambassador to the United Nations, Nikki Haley, she's running against you. Your former Secretary of State, Mike Pompeo, said he's not supporting you.

You mentioned National Security Adviser John Bolton. He's not supporting you either. You mentioned Attorney General Bill Barr. Says you shouldn't be president again. Calls you 'the consummate narcissist' and 'troubled man.' You recently called Barr a 'gutless pig.'"

Your second defense secretary is not supporting you. Called you irresponsible. This week, you called your White House Chief of Staff John Kelly 'weak and ineffective' and 'born with a very small brain.' You called your acting White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney a 'born loser.' You called your first Secretary of State, Rex Tillerson, 'dumb as a rock,' and your first Defense Secretary, James Mattis, 'the world's most overrated general.' You called your White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany 'milquetoast.'

And multiple times, you've referred to your Transportation secretary, Elaine Chao, as 'Mitch McConnell's China-loving wife.'

"So, why did you hire all of them in the first place?" Baier asked.

Trump responded by pointing to unnamed people who were "phenomenal" for the economy in his administration.

Video of Trump on FOX News:

Trump: First of all, I won in 2020 by a lot

Baier: You lost the 2020 election

Trump: They were counting ballots, not the authenticity of the ballot. The ballots were fake ballots.

5:32 PM · Jun 19, 2023 https://twitter.com/Acyn/status/1670922502510452738

The exchange was particularly notable after Fox News in April settled a lawsuit with Dominion Voting Systems, which accused the network of promoting unfounded claims that ballots cast through their voting machines were "flipped" from Trump to President Joe Biden while privately acknowledging those claims were untrue.

If either party can claim both the White House and Congress in next fall’s elections, there’s a huge prize for the taking: Unchecked power to reshape taxes for millions of Americans.

Much of the GOP’s sweeping Trump-era tax breaks are set to expire in 2025, which will almost certainly push Congress to act on their future. So the 2024 campaign will determine whether Republicans can keep the cuts, Democrats can rewrite them — or, if neither party gets a clean sweep, whether a split government prompts a massive fiscal collision.

The ability to mold the country’s tax structure may not ever become the primary focus of the presidential campaign or the battle for Congress. Yet both Democrats and Republicans are actively strategizing over how to handle the very real consequences of the tax cliff.

First, though, one party has to try to win it all.

”Anything at this point would be a wish list. Because it depends on what happens in 2024. It’s huge stakes,” said Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.). “You almost have to win all three branches: House, Senate and presidency.”

Both the House and Senate could remain closely divided in two years, but remaking tax policy can happen with simple majority votes thanks to congressional budget rules. That’s how a 50-50 Democratic Senate managed to impose a new corporate minimum tax last year, and how a 52-48 GOP Senate passed 2017’s massive tax law. It’s enough to raise the stakes of every single congressional campaign next year, because one or two House or Senate seats could make the difference between tax gridlock or one party rewriting the entire code.

Good. Independent voters will slowly realize Trump ran his mouth like the defective person he is.

Trump’s Fox News interview was a defense attorney’s nightmare

In a tense Fox News interview on Monday, Trump’s statements reinforce the charges against him.

Trump clashed repeatedly with Baier on other subjects, as he was pressed regarding falsehoods about the 2020 election results and critiques from members of his former administration. Below are four takeaways from their contentious conversation.

Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump walk out of the White House and months later get $2 billion from the Saudis... You think it’s because he’s some kind of investing genius? Or do you think it’s because he was sitting next to the POTUS for 4 years doing favors for the Saudis?

Six months after leaving the White House, Jared Kushner secured a $2 billion investment from a fund led by the Saudi crown prince, a close ally during the Trump administration, despite objections from the fund’s advisers about the merits of the deal.

A panel that screens investments for the main Saudi sovereign wealth fund cited concerns about the proposed deal with Mr. Kushner’s newly formed private equity firm, Affinity Partners, previously undisclosed documents show.

Those objections included: “the inexperience of the Affinity Fund management”; the possibility that the kingdom would be responsible for “the bulk of the investment and risk”; due diligence on the fledgling firm’s operations that found them “unsatisfactory in all aspects”; a proposed asset management fee that “seems excessive”; and “public relations risks” from Mr. Kushner’s prior role as a senior adviser to his father-in-law, former President Donald J. Trump, according to minutes of the panel’s meeting last June 30.

But days later the full board of the $620 billion Public Investment Fund — led by Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, Saudi Arabia’s de facto ruler and a beneficiary of Mr. Kushner’s support when he worked as a White House adviser — overruled the panel.

Ethics experts say that such a deal creates the appearance of potential payback for Mr. Kushner’s actions in the White House — or of a bid for future favor if Mr. Trump seeks and wins another presidential term in 2024.

When you realize Jared had 0 experience at running an investment firm, which is the reason the Saudis claimed to have given him the money, to invest on their behalf, the question as to why they actually gave him the money answers itself. It is still possible that if this is not currently being investigated, it will be.

Fingers crossed...

To get back to the topic of this thread, the coming elections 2024, I’ll post an opinion.

Do not underestimate the effect that overturning Roe v. Wade is going to have on the elections. I heard this morning the democrats believe this will gain them 3 senate seats. The horror stories of women being denied health care while pregnant are piling up. And for the next year, every time women get together, they will be talking about this. Every time they speak on the phone, they will be talking about this. Every time they go on the internet, turn on the news or radio in their cars, they will hear about this.

They will be making sure the men in their lives get an earful. And remember, men are starting to wake up to the fact, no abortion, then 18 years of childcare payments are in their future.

Guns too, are showing up in conversations had by women. What's the point republicans?
