Republicans have to pay for the tax cuts for the wealthy somehow. They have to find money to fund their favorite projects somehow and they now have set their sights on social security, medicare and medicaid.
- Los Angeles Times, Michael Hiltzik, September 6, 2019 – A Republican senator hints at gutting Social Security ‘behind closed doors’
- The Hill, John Larson, August 2, 2019 – Republicans’ rendezvous with reality — their plan is to cut Social Security

Now that the Internet is worldwide, it is easy for the enemies of the United States to penetrate US citizens with its apps. One of the most is an app which is popular among the youth is TikTok which is used for creating and sharing short lip-sync, comedy and talent videos.
Weakening the U.S. is now another notch on Mitch McConnell’s belt “red” belt [aka #MoscowMitch]. Even diverting funds from his own state’s Fort Campbell army base isn’t below him. Funds that would have helped build a planned middle school for the children of our folks in uniform. 1
Finally a candidate who will fight for is appearing on the horizon and the people of Kentucky appear to be taking notice. Amy McGrath, a retired US Marine Corps Lieutenant Colonel raised in Kentucky, is running for the US Senate to fix Washington and give Kentuckians back their voice. 2
Many have questioned how legitimate Melina Trump’s citizenship is.
Melania Trump’s own immigration path also has been scrutinized. The first lady, formerly a model known as Melania Knauss, arrived in New York in 1996 and began dating Trump in 2000.1
In 2001, she [Melania Trump] was granted a green card in the elite EB-1 program, which was designed for renowned academic researchers, multinational business executives or those in other fields, such as Olympic athletes and Oscar-winning actors, who demonstrated “sustained national and international acclaim.”
The EB-1 program, also called with “Einstein” citizenship path, has very specific qualifications. Read them for yourself directly on the official website of the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services’ website.
Just for yourself. Did she meet any of this Categories and the supplied evidence? Why doesn’t she show the evidence while her husband bullies others about their immigration status?
The religious right wants to ban all abortions. Having the State or Federal Government ban all abortions, especially those of rape or insist, should have consequences. If the Government and the religious right forces a woman to carry an unwanted baby, the Government also has the responsibility to raise that child to adulthood. That means food, shelter, clothing and education including college through age 26, until that child enters the workforce and can subsist by themselves.
What Does The Bible Teach?
Is It True That Trump Paid for Abortions?
There are rumors, too, of Trump mistresses paid to have abortions and kept quiet with non-disclosure agreements. One source tells Cockburn that there could be as many as eight such women. (Cockburn should point out that Trump has been the subject of rumors about secret abortions for years, and has admitted no such thing.) But this is more than merely sad and sordid: if any such payments were made while Trump was running for President, there could be new campaign finance violations, all felony offenses. 2
Most citizens were taught that there was only one Mexico, but Fox news thinks that there are THREE Mexican countries according to a graphic that was displayed for almost 30 seconds during one of their recent show.
The show later issued an on-air correction and apology, saying the graphic was “inaccurate” and that the funding was being cut from “three Central American countries.” 1
Father Roy Snipes, a 73-year-old priest, blasts the idea of a wall.
“They are trying to bully us but we are not backing down,” said Snipes, who made his final vows nearly four decades ago at La Lomita. “The wall goes against our beliefs as Catholics and as Texans. We refuse to let them bulldoze our church for something that will harm people in need.”
The historic La Lomita Chapel sits about 800 feet from the border and welcomes all folks from the surrounding area near the Rio Grande in the City of Mission, Texas.
The obvious intrusion into religious liberty means nothing to the Trump administration who is in the process of seizing the chapel and surrounding land.
Right before the Thanksgiving holiday, the federal government asked a McAllen judge to give it immediate possession of land in Hidalgo County owned by the Catholic Diocese of Brownsville. The federal government filed a Declaration of Taking on Oct. 25 to use eminent domain to take properties that include La Lomita Chapel and property south of the Juan Diego Academy in Mission on brush land next to the levee. 2
