"Trump orders new government buildings must be 'beautiful'"

Unfortunately, Trump's idea of "beautiful" is anything designed by Albert Speer.

Deep State Barr and his slow walk for everything is a traitor to the American people. The progressive communists have certainly been playing the long game where Republican's are too short sited preferring to let people exist in freedom. When McCarthy was attempting to purge communists in the government, they didn't leave anything but the limelight. They quietly went about their work. Infiltrating the Democrat party, government positions of mediocrity, education system. Now 50 some odd years later they are on the cusp of success: the destruction of the beacon of light to the free world. The democrats are fully on board, even old-skool ones with the progressive communist agenda of their party. The education system, once the greatest in the world, has been obliterated, where highschool seniors couldn't even hold a candle to middle school asian students. The entrenched bureaucracy may be too embedded to fully expunge, in government positions throughout the Country in all aspects of governance. Millie is a prime example of the culmination of their efforts: parental dependence on government for existence, schooling without teaching any information or critical thought, a vacuous rage against his "enemies" that we know as traditional American's. Where it goes from here I can only imagine, but it's happened much more quickly than I ever thought.

Tony, we know you weren’t making bets, etc. We know you had some fat chick last night and had to get really drunk before you could fuck her.

@3:47 seems to know the truth. Trust him!

@3:42 I watched the same events you talk of, and have seen the Republican Party turn away from its long-standing traditions of fiscal responsibility and controlled spending into the Reaganesque "Whoopee! Lets shift the tax load away from the Rich and onto the Working People and spend, spend, spend!" mindset that is universal in the GOP today.

Communism failed, Pardner! It failed in both the Countries where it originated, it collapsed, and all the prophets who said it would fail because it ignored basic human nature were proven right. Your Oligarcic scare tactics don't have any effect anymore.

What you try to denigrate with the Bugaboo of "communism" is simply the United States slowly catching up with the rest of the Developed World and beginning to pay some attention to the needs of its Citizens, rather exclusively those of its Wealthy. And the name for that osn't "Comminism", it's "Civilization"!

@4:28, I don't disagree with you, the Republican party has certainly contributed as much to our fiscal problems as the progressive democrats; pigs at the trough. However, that doesn't change any of the analysis about the commies playing the long game. Yes, they've watched their utopias fail everywhere except China. However, they've never had the opportunity in a Country as "rich" and unique as America. They certainly are "here" fully in-place as the modern democratic party with several members of that body politic as publicly avowed communists.

A big THANK YOU to Tony's Kansas City, my first source of news on the metropolitan area. Thank you for the news, and thank you for the free speech zone that permits racial realists to discuss reality.

Hunter Biden is now selling "art" made by blowing paint out of a straw. Why does everything in that man's like involve a straw and a bodily orifice?

@4:43 you equate both "Socialist" and "Marxist" with "Communist", which is nothing more that a label of justification slapped onto a particular variation of Totalitarian Government. Karl Marx, in "Das Kapital", said that there is only one European Country where "Communism" could never succeed, and that was in Russia, because the Russian Middle Class was too small of a percentage of the population.

What Capitalist Countries decry as "Communism" is a system of Government called "Democratic Socialism", whereby the Wealth-Creating Class (the Middle Class and Working People) seize partial control of what the Government is doing from the Wealthy, and direct it toward the benefit of the entire People.

That is what is happening to a minor extent in this Country, and that is what has the Wealthy, and therefore their political tool, the Republican Party, so upset.

TRUMP WAS NOT THE DISEASE, MERELY A SYMPTOM!
