While Americans were transfixed by Senate hearings over Brett Kavanaugh’s alleged sexual assaults, House Republicans quietly passed another enormous tax handout for the wealthiest Americans.

Round one of this giveaway cost $2 trillion. Round two is even bigger—it would explode the deficit by more than $3 trillion. And once again, it’s largely a giveaway to the wealthiest Americans—and could mean devastating service cuts for ordinary people.

President Trump claimed the first tax plan would be “rocket fuel” for the economy, but there’s no evidence it’s done anything to improve the economic well being of working families.

The centerpiece of the first plan was a massive tax cut for corporations. The corporate tax rate was reduced by 40 percent, plus a $400 billion tax break for multinational corporations on their trillions in accumulated offshore profits.

     “ There is nothing which I dread so much as a division of the
republic into two great parties, each arranged under its leaders, and
connecting measures in opposition to each other.  This in my humble
apprehension, is to be dreaded as the greatest political evil under
our Constitution.”

                                          –John Adams as Vice President under
                                      President George Washington, in
his letter to
Jonathan Jackson (2
October 1789)

What transpired last week politically with regard to considering Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court is unacceptable and has the elements of pure defamation of character and family.  Is a candidate for the Supreme Court meant to be prosecuted by a Chinese Tribunal? It matters not whether a person is a Democrat or a Republican, yet, one of the parties will conspire and accuse a nominee, guilty or not? This is flat out conspiracy theory.  Shall we call in the jury?

Consequently, in a smear campaign, as long as there is outright judgment and condemnation while the race card or the sex card is played, it’s all “acceptable” even if the moral essence of America and the republic is seen by the world as pure rubbish?  Is there any conviction left with lawmakers who use any means possible to destroy a person who is seen “in their definition” an enemy of the state?  Have political parties now drawn a line in the sand and are now bent on staying in power no matter what the cost, even if the entire American Republic goes down with the ship?
