“I’m a Leninist. Lenin wanted to destroy the state, and that’s my goal, too. we wish to bring all crashing down, and destroy all of today’s establishment.”
These are the difference uttered by White House Chief Strategist Steve Bannon.
When someone tells you who they are — trust them.
When someone tells you precisely what they aim to do — trust them.
Bannon, who was the CEO of Trump’s campaign and is now widely seen as a brew between being his puppet-master and even a co-President, did not mince difference when he pronounced very seemingly who he was and what his goals were.
I trust him.
And zero that has happened in Trump’s first 60 days in bureau better personifies the sinful goals of Steve Bannon “to bring all crashing down” some-more than Trump’s first due bill that was expelled Thursday.
It is, unequivocally, the many cruel, destructive, dangerous and inhumane sovereign bill ever expelled by an American President.
It is so outrageously and zodiacally vicious that it shocks the demur that such a bill was actually total on purpose. At first, we directed to write about it shortly after it was released, but it overtly took me an additional 24 hours to hang my mind around what we had seen.
Trump’s bill completely eliminates 19 sovereign agencies — including appropriation for PBS, the National Endowment for the Arts, and the National Endowment for the Humanities. It cuts appropriation for Meals on Wheels. Who the hurt cuts appropriation for Meals on Wheels? They broach over a million comfortable dishes a week to America’s seniors, including thousands and thousands of veterans. When pulpy on how in the universe they could do such a thing, Trump’s bill man, Mick Mulvaney, responded with a repartee that the program “sounds good,” — but doesn’t work.
Except it does.
The bill also totally eliminates the Senior Community Service Employment Program, which provides pursuit training and chain services to comparison citizens. My mother-in-law used this program and was placed in a pursuit since of it.
It also eliminates appropriation for 49 National Historic Sites. What are they ostensible to do but this funding?
The bill totally eliminates the $3 billion Community Development Block Grant program, which provides essential appropriation to tens of thousands of underserved communities opposite the nation. This cut would hurt so many programs — and not just in inner-city America, but also in farming America as well. To cut it totally from the bill is essentially absurd.
Trump aims to drastically condense the bill of the Environmental Protection Agency by 31% — immediately expelling 3,200 jobs — many of them centered around meridian change, environmental cleanup, and research.
The 29% bill cut to the State Department totally eliminates many peacekeeping missions and informative sell programs. The cuts immediately break the efforts with tact around the world. Of course, Trump and Bannon know this.
Even the NYPD is outraged by the budget, which would cut millions on millions of dollars from the department’s efforts to fight terrorism.
Our city needs this money. New York is the largest aim for terrorism in the nation. Mind you, Trump and his family are costing New York millions to strengthen them and their businesses in the city, including Trump Tower along Fifth Ave. That they have the haughtiness to introduce slicing appropriation for the NYPD seems vindictive.
In fact, every singular dialect in the supervision had its bill slashed — solely for the 3 defense-related departments.
The Defense Department boost in Trump’s bill was a towering $54,000,000,000. we total the zeroes for outcome — that’s $54 billion. Our republic already spends some-more on invulnerability than many of the grown nations of the universe combined. This boost is simply absurd and unnecessary. It is not what Trump’s electorate asked for.
To put that $54 billion boost in invulnerability spending in context, it would cost about $69 billion per year from the sovereign supervision for every college tyro to attend college fee free.
What in the hurt are we increasingly the invulnerability bill by $54 billion for? Again, assuage increases could be argued, but this is an boost of epic proportions. In light of the fact that so many programs that truly aim to make America good would be separated altogether to make this boost possible, it looks that much worse.
This bill has no heart. It has no soul. It has no compassion. But that’s not what Steve Bannon ever pronounced he was about. He pronounced he wanted “to bring all crashing down” and this bill does just that.
