Are Republicans Trying to Crash the Economy?

Is it possible that Republicans are that criminal that they would crash the economy by defaulting on the debt so that they can win in 2024? Don’t put it past them, no matter how evil and treasonous it is:

Republican Antics Could Cause U.S. Debt Default leading to Economic Disaster

The GOP plays politics with everything. They seem to want to tear everything down rather governing. It’s all hate and extremism all the time. And it could lead to miscalculation that would cause a default on the debt, leading to catastrophic results for the economy:

Jon Stewart understands:

GOP is hypocritical and proud of it.

Democratic Party won’t Hold Primary Debates in 2024

The two-party dictatorship has become even more undemocratic. Every presidential election cycle now only includes 2 candidates, both from the parties in power. During the contested primaries there are at least 10 candidates debating. That is how they keep power when support for the two-party system continues to decline.

Democrats lose Texas House Seat to Hispanic Republican

How pathetic is this? Democrats can’t keep a Congressional seat in where the majority of voters are hispanic. This despite the GOP’s constant racist attacks on people of color:

Republican Mayra Flores flipped a Democratic House district in South Texas on Tuesday, a major special election victory building on GOP gains among Latino voters in the region in the 2020 election.

Flores, a respiratory care practitioner, had 51 percent of the vote to Democrat Dan Sanchez’s 43 percent when Sanchez conceded the race in a district where 85 percent of residents are Latino. Flores won the seat outright by taking a majority of the vote, without needing a runoff.

The seat was open after former Democratic Rep. Filemon Vela resigned to work for a lobbying group in March. Flores will be the first Mexican-born congresswoman and the first Republican to represent the Rio Grande Valley area since Reconstruction. However, she will only hold the seat until January.

The Atlantic: “Why Americans Die So Much”

This stat more than anything else shows a nation in decline. Which is ironic given the previous administration bragged that they were making “America great again.” They in fact accelerated our nation’s decline. We are on the verge of abyss. And it’s decades in the making. And it’s the result of a corrupt two-party duopoly that is tyrannical:

I’m talking about the past 30 years. Before the 1990s, average life expectancy in the U.S. was not much different than it was in Germany, the United Kingdom, or France. But since the 1990s, American life spans started falling significantly behind those in similarly wealthy European countries.

According to a new working paper released by the National Bureau of Economic Research, Americans now die earlier than their European counterparts, no matter what age you’re looking at. Compared with Europeans, American babies are more likely to die before they turn 5, American teens are more likely to die before they turn 20, and American adults are more likely to die before they turn 65. At every age, living in the United States carries a higher risk of mortality. This is America’s unsung death penalty, and it adds up. Average life expectancy surged above 80 years old in just about every Western European country in the 2010s, including Portugal, Spain, France, Italy, Germany, the U.K., Denmark, and Switzerland. In the U.S., by contrast, the average life span has never exceeded 79—and now it’s just taken a historic tumble.

House panel approves $25B boost for Defense Budget

America might be in crisis and money is limited for spending on urgent needs for our citizens, but the Congress is always able to find funds to spend on the military. This obscene misallocation of funds is even worse than what we’ve come to expect from both parties. They know it’s outrageous but they don’t care. Their first loyalty is to the military-industrial-complex:

The House Armed Services Committee voted Wednesday to add nearly $25 billion to President Biden’s proposed defense budget as more than a dozen Democrats sided with Republicans on bulking up Pentagon funding.

The committee voted 42-17 on an amendment from Rep. Mike Rogers (R-Ala.), the ranking member of the panel, to set the fiscal 2022 defense budget at $778 billion — $37 billion more than approved for this year and $25 billion more than Biden asked for next year.


The Government Just Admitted It Doesn’t Really Try to Collect Rich People’s Taxes

This tells you everything about who controls the U.S. government. And it ain’t you or I:

The new Internal Revenue Service figures compiled by Syracuse University researchers show that in the last eight years, there has been a 72 percent drop in the number of audits of those making more than $1 million. In all, 98 percent of those making more than $1 million did not face an audit last year

There has also been a 55 percent drop in the number of audits of America’s largest corporations. In 2012, almost all corporate giants were audited. In 2020, however, almost two thirds of those corporations were not subjected to audits.


The Wealthy and Powerful are Jumping the line to Receive Vaccinations for Coronavirus

It’s like from a end-of-days-type movie. The wealthy are getting access to Coronavirus vaccine before they are entitled. This should be a crime. But many of those getting shots before many of their elderly constituents are politicians. And they won’t dare stand in the way of a potentially wealthy donor getting the vaccine:

Two New York real estate moguls are reportedly helping their wealthy friends and associates jump the line to receive vaccinations for the novel coronavirus.

According to the New York Post, brothers Bill and David S. Mack have “personally arranged for… their wealthy friends from Manhattan and the ritzy Palm Beach Country Club to get the COVID-19 vaccine at a Florida retirement home.”

According to the Post’s sources, the vaccine was administered at the Joseph L. Morse Health Center in Palm Beach, which is near the Palm Beach Country Club where many of the brothers’ friends are members

“They apparently made a list of people who could get the vaccine, who one can only assume are their wealthy friends and clients,” one source explained. “Supposedly, some people flew down in private jets from New York just for the vaccine, if they were lucky enough to be on the list the brothers made. It wasn’t just members of the Palm Beach Country Club who got the vaccine, but there were many club members who did.”
