Amy Coney Barrett: Trump May Have Well As Nominated Mel Gibson - I Bet You Paid More In Federal Taxes Than Trump (We Certainly Have)


"Extremism can flourish only in an environment where basic governmental social responsibility for the welfare of the people is neglected. Political dictatorship and social hopelessness create the desperation that fuels religious extremism."

And yet, the right wing GOP is thrilled over Trump's nomination of Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court - as well as undaunted by the recent revelations by The New York Times of Trump's financial disasters; rejecting the realities of his criminal behaviour as well as being sucked into massive delusion by the greatest snake oil salesman of all times. 
We've been watching and reading throughout the weekend and into today the blowout reports which of course Trump denies and it was difficult for me to completely understand why Trump is being given a free pass to maraud about plundering some of the most sacred hallmarks of Democracy by his supporters.
To quote Mike:  " Both are cultural issues. His supporters are mostly white Christian fundamentalists who reject diversity at all costs, many are fanatics.   They have the power right now, and they intend to keep it.  As far as his criminal activities, they don't care. It is a disgrace."

Is it that simple? Let me just add, Trump is a national security risk.

So, lots of links for y'all, plus I have the latest report from the Times on more of the merry adventures of Trump(Monday's issue) as he laughs all the way to the bank.
