A deciding fraction of Alabama Republicans did the right thing and did not elect Roy Moore. Perhaps sexual assaults draws a red line finally, well with at least some of the GOP that does not include the President of the United States.

Be wary of all the news dumps! It seems something is happening daily and a good percentage is a distraction to keep you from seeing the really damaging things that are happening to erode consumer protections, the environment, the free internet, and to give the richest people in this country more tax cuts. It is mind blowing to say the least that the three richest people in this country own as much as the bottom 50% of this country.

Here at Progressive Ways we will try to focus on the most important news. If you see we are not covering the most popular “news” on other sites, there is good reason. Don’t be distracted by this chaos and chief we begrudgingly call president.

*Tax Scam*

Is it really a surprise Trump’s billionaires will be the major beneficiaries of his tax scam? This is the one to watch. Wall Street at record highs but corporations need a tax break? Repeal the estate tax which only effects people with over 5.5 million in assets and couples with 11 million. Sure looks like a huge tax cut to the rich to me! That estate tax repeal would save someone like the Walton family, (Walmart Owners), over 30 billion dollars.

Personally I am sick and tired of the trickle down economics myth. Reagan started it and the wealth gap has been exploding ever since. Like Climate change, we may have already reached the point of no return for the decline of the middle class. The rich own Washington and they are not going to give it back. It is no secret that this tax plan is created to pay back their rich donors. Some rich donors have already made it clear that if they do not get their tax cut they are done. That alone is reason enough to not do it!

Remember this “tax reform” will raise the national debt by 1.5 trillion dollars as it is written. It will not be long before the GOP comes back with a vengeance telling us how we will have to reform entitlements, cut Medicare and reform Social Security. Rand Paul has already started with this as he considers raising the debt with tax reform. You could not get more hypocritical because they do not give a damn about the middle class, only their rich donors. And don’t even get me started on the GOP’s plan to tax you on money you had to pay out on other taxes! Its called double taxation and its wrong.

In the latest news they plan to remove the ACA Mandate with the tax scam. The idea is that so many people will lose their healthcare and that will save them 300 billion dollars to give to the rich. Their plan is to screw the middle class and poor by giving them temporary tax cuts, while giving multi national corporations and millionaires/billionaires permanent tax cuts. The poor and middle class are being paid off with a pittance to get them to go along with this corporate and rich hand out. Are Americans really going to go along with this?

And what about the National Debt that is approaching 100% of this countries entire economy? With the high debt they will have to reform entitlements that will effect YOUR money you paid into Social Security your entire life. They make the word “entitlement” a dirty word because it is money you are entitled to. But the debt does not matter to them with tax cuts, their money. Why do we have a government run by greedy bastards? Why would you put them in office?

This bill stinks in the daylight so the GOP is trying to rush it through with no bipartisan support, no hearings, nothing. Trump has lied about it constantly and they ignore the bipartisan CBO reports. These scumbags in the GOP are more concerned about their donors than they ever cared about the American people. In this first video Bernie Sanders will tell you what no Republican would. Is it any wonder Bernie is the most trusted politician in the USA.

 

*Russian Collusion*

And it turns out there has been a cooperating witness for possibly months! Some have even suggested that George Papadopoulos may have even wore a wire in his cooperation with the investigation in return for a lighter sentence. The message from Special Prosecutor Mueller is that if you work with us, you will receive a significantly reduced sentence. The charges against Manafort are significant and he may have already flipped also.

Big uptick since Trump said he believes Putin over our own security agencies. He insinuate that Putin would not lie to him. Trumps examples of treason knows no end. What ever Putin is holding over his head is obvious and huge. Russia’s campaign against the United States was a complete success and saddled us with an idiot for President. How could it have possibly been any worst for the United States?

 

*Net Neutrality*

Today, December 14th, the FCC Chairman Ajit Pai repealed Net Neutrality. Expect this to go to court next. This is just one more thing no one asked for that the GOP shoved on you. Be sure to remember these assholes in 2018. Make no mistake about it, this is not the FCC doing this, this is Trump and the GOP that enabled Pai to do this.

Net Neutrality replaced over 700 rules and regulations for consumer protection. By killing Net Neutrality those rules are not coming back. Killing Net Neutrality brings back the wild west with Internet Service Providers like Verizon and Comcast in charge. This is why they have lobbied for this so hard and brought about people like Ajit Pai. These companies rate the worst companies in America for customer service, you think they give a damn about you and your right to free speech on the internet? Seriously?

 

*Endless Wars On Civilians*

We like to think the use of smart bombs prevents innocent civilians from getting killed but that is far from the facts.

 

*EPA Threats*

Trump drops EPA protections to save coal jobs he says. There are less than 70,000 coal jobs left in this declining dirty energy. At the same time there are over 650,000 jobs in clean renewable energy and it is a growing field. If this does not show that Trump has no idea of what he is doing, you don’t have to look far for other examples.

Fact is the energy industry will determine where the jobs are, not President Trump, but if they start strip mining your favorite federal lands, you will know why. Coal has been on the way out for a while now. Natural Gas is much easier to produce, easier to transport, and much cleaner to burn. Despite Trump’s EPA killing regulations on pollution from burning coal it does not change the facts.

Clean coal is a myth. Here is the truth written in plain language.

 

*Political Comedy*

Its been seven months and it is overwhelming. Does that happen to you? I have to step back from it all and look at it in a different light. To that I send my thanks to Bill Maher, John Oliver, Seth Meyers, Steven Colbert, Trevor Noah, Saturday Night Live, and Full Frontal with Samatha Bee. They prove that if it was not so serious it would be funny and what a joke our President, his spokespeople and his cabinet truly are.

The reason is very simple, this is a progressive website and Donald Trump has proved himself the exact opposite of progressive. His first moves in office were to dismantle any progressive gains and he has never been the president of all the people of the united states and he is certainly not my president. Here we believe in equality, equal rights for all, and a country that cares about its citizens. Donald Trump conned a lot of people to vote for him despite it was against their best interests. Up to now the only real interest he cares about are the very rich. So yes, the majority of this country and certainly progressives wait with baited breath till this person and his entire family is out of the white house, and yes, it gives us hope that one day the GOP will think about their constitutes instead of their party and rich donors.
