Re: Trump’s 10% INCREASE in military spending: Max Igan speaks my truth. Either “they’ve got dirt on him or he was just a player to begin with.”
My own discouragement is so profound that I couldn’t bear to watch the rehearsed, so-called “presidential” speech. Since it was such a hit with the still mind-controlled American public I intuitively knew it would not be something I’d want to take in. Like Igan, I had been giving Trump the benefit of the doubt, and now, after slightly more than a month in office, it does seem to be clear that Igan’s conclusion is correct.
The perfidy was also noted by Glenn Greenwald, who offered perspective on the shameful war-mongering call-out of the dead Navy Seal’s grieving widow.
Peace activist David Swanson wonders, too:
The military is already so bloated that much of its spending could be pulled way back.
So how does Trump plan to fund this new bloat? He’s already gutting the EPA and his cabinet members were chosen to dismantle the departments they are in charge of. Well,
Oh yeah, right. So he chooses to “make America great again” by “getting people back to work” to fund the ongoing reckless, arrogant, hegemonic U.S. project of rampant, systematic, murderous destruction of people, animals, plants, rocks, water, air, and planet Earth.
