Cadet Bonespurs success in dividing Americans against themselves is entirely a product of decades of Fox News and the expert work of the PsyOps warriors of the KGB who slithered him into office.

 

As for his other success, he succeeded in the same way Bernie Madoff succeeded - by cheating his investors. The only difference is lil donny was able to shield his responisbility for total incompetence through the bankruptcy courts allowing him to lose over a BILLION DOLLARS of Other People's Money and stay out of jail - for now.

 

Not sure how "white guilt" fits in this, save for the fact all the crooks appear to be lilly white, but GOPers seem to need to weave that into all their webs of deceit these days.

 

Does make GOPers wonder what donny is doing for the Russians to make up for not being able to repay those hundreds of millions, but for the rest of us, the answer is rather obvious.

 

His business failure was so complete, by the mid 1990's, he could not even get junk bond financing for his schemes UNTIL the Personal Wealth Management branch of Deutsche Bank suddenly handed him $650,000,000 which he never repaid, but then DB handed him ANOTHER $200,000,000. Shortly after all this, DB was convicted of laundering over $10 BILLION for Russian mobsters, Oligarchs and the Russian Government. GOPers cannot connect those dots simply because they do not like where they obviously lead.

 

The US Government levied heavy fines against DB for their part in the mortgage meltdown, but lil donny as ToadPOTUS simply ordered Treasury to not collect those fines, and has now gone to court to prevent DB from releasing any information about the source of his loans and the "arrangements" he's made to NOT repay them.


Any thoughts on the topic or is your thinking all summed up with ToadPOTUS, lil donny, Russian Mobsters, Oligarchs, the Russian government, lily white, Gopers, Cadet Bonespurs,warriors,  KBG and Fox? - you forgot the Reagan Tax cuts.

Nothing discussable in that rant. Just the usual gibberish about White Supremacists, alt-right, and Limbaugh - you forgot Fox.

Fascism (/ˈfæʃɪzəm/) is a form of radical, right-wing, authoritarian ultranationalism, characterized by dictatorial power, forcible suppression of opposition, and strong regimentation of society and of the economy, which came to prominence in early 20th-century Europe.

 

Indeed, mandm, indeed.

And the President is not a fascist.  So you claim.....how he acts says otherwise.  Some people make statements and claim they're accurate, simply because they say so.  Most Fox fans fall into this catagory(sic).  They ignore facts.


Yes, so I claim and so does reality support my position. No, it doesn't.  Only an alternative reality supports the position of trumpettes.....The problem is that words likel Nazi, fascist, racist, sexist, homophobe, alt-right, ....YOUR team's word for itself.....too funny......and the rest have real meaning but some have chosen to use them as merely insults.  and some righties choose the terms to identify themselves.  It's interesting righties have their hatefilled terms as well.....marxists, Dimms, cop-haters, racists, etc. and you CHOOSE to ignore that fact as well, using them as mere ly insults.

 

It's laughable you choose to whine endlessly and didn't bother to answer the question.

 

That's the same people who throw Fox in as an effort to support their biases.  Wrong again.  The study had findings.....

Fascism (/ˈfæʃɪzəm/) is a form of radical, right-wing, authoritarian ultranationalism,[1][2][3][4] characterized by dictatorial power, forcible suppression of opposition, and strong regimentation of society and of the economy,[5] which came to prominence in early 20th-century Europe.[6] The first fascist movements emerged in Italy during World War I before it spread to other European countries.[6] Opposed to liberalism, Marxism, and anarchism, fascism is placed on the far-right within the traditional left–right spectrum.[6][7][8][9][10][11]
Fascists saw World War I as a revolution that brought massive changes to the nature of war, society, the state, and technology. The advent of total war and the total mass mobilization of society had broken down the distinction between civilians and combatants. A "military citizenship" arose in which all citizens were involved with the military in some manner during the war.[12][13] The war had resulted in the rise of a powerful state capable of mobilizing millions of people to serve on the front lines and providing economic production and logistics to support them, as well as having unprecedented authority to intervene in the lives of citizens.[12][13]
Fascists believe that liberal democracy is obsolete and regard the complete mobilization of society under a totalitarian one-party state as necessary to prepare a nation for armed conflict and to respond effectively to economic difficulties.[14] Such a state is led by a strong leader—such as a dictator and a martial government composed of the members of the governing fascist party—to forge national unity and maintain a stable and orderly society.[14] Fascism rejects assertions that violence is automatically negative in nature and views political violence, war, and imperialism as means that can achieve national rejuvenation.[15][16][17][18] Fascists advocate a mixed economy, with the principal goal of achieving autarky (national economic self-sufficiency) through protectionist and interventionist economic policies.[19]
Since the end of World War II in 1945, few parties have openly described themselves as fascist, and the term is instead now usually used pejoratively by political opponents. The descriptions neo-fascist or post-fascist are sometimes applied more formally to describe parties of the far-right with ideologies similar to, or rooted in, 20th-century fascist movements.[6][20]

 

OMG this is todays Leadership !!


Today the GOPerLords have replaced the government (which they seek to neuter) with the Corporate Oligarchy as the vehicle for controlling our Nation.

 

They replace Government Control ("mixed economy" of earlier Fascists) with Government subsidization both of the Corporation and the leaders of the Corporation through the tax code, which shifts the burden of supporting the Nation from the wealthy to the middle class, and conscious overpayments (disguised as "cost overruns") on military weapons systems and logistical support to the military.

 

On the State and local level, GOPerLords shift tax dollars to the Corporations by privatization of essential services - schools, sanitation and transportation - and cost  overruns on infrastructure projects.

 

The ethnic and racial discrimination in accommodations (hotels, resorts) has been replaced with financial discrimination where leisure activities that had been available to the vast majority of Americans are no longer affordable. The GOPerLords will provide their base with all manner of racially discriminatory laws and rhetoric, but in reality, the only "color" they see is "GREEN". If you have the bucks, you're welcome, if not you're not.

 


Anyone not seriously rich who votes for any Republican is simply holding their pocket open to make it easier to pick.


Sounds like you want a one-Party system, Benito.
