It neve was about "draining the swamp." It was always about draining the US Treasury.

You are free to study how Putin and his cronies robbed the Russian people of their wealth and continue to hold their alcohol and drug addicted minds under control.

This is what Trump and his Executive Department heads are doing in plain sight. There is to be little or no money left for the social safety net, maybe something left for farm subsidies, tobacco and the other corporate welfare recipients.

Moving most of the US treasury to the Defense Dept. and the MIC launders the money to their favorite contract bilkers like Blackwater was.

I warned years ago about the influx of Russians buying up property and small businesses only to let them go under. This is all part of their long-game plan and it is too late to correct most of what has happened. Maybe folks will pay attention to the set up to rob our own government? But based on the past outrage over things like HRC being paid $250,000 for a speech to Goldman and her e-mails, free college, legalized pot, and the war on Christianity the future looks grim that the grassroots will pay much attention to the things that are really harming them except for a few icons like Rev Barber. He can't do it alone.

1. "Draining the swamp"

To drumph, I really think that "draining the swamp" never meant getting rid of corruption, it meant killing off large parts of government and regulations on business. Draining the swamp is just a slogan he used to fire up his stupid base.

4. That has been the GOP way since the late 1800s.

They pull this shit EVERY DAMN TIME they come into power, the one possible exception being Eisenhower. The only difference now is that they are involving the Russians, rather than using them as an excuse.
