5 Ways Donald Trump Has Not Drained the Swamp

1.He has packed his administration with former lobbyists and corporate executives. He has installed a former Boeing executive to run the Defense Department; a former pharmaceutical lobbyist to run the Department of Health and Human Services; a former coal lobbyist to run the Environmental Protection Agency, and a former oil lobbyist to run the Department of the Interior. In total, more than 300 lobbyists now work in the Trump administration – many in key positions overseeing the industries they used to lobby for.

2. He and his family are personally profiting from the presidency. Despite Trump’s promise he’d sever all ties with his existing businesses and place all assets in a “blind” trust to eliminate any conflicts of interest, documents show Trump remains the sole beneficiary of his trust and still retains the legal power to revoke the trust at any time. Meanwhile, foreign dignitaries have flooded Trump’s hotels, lining his pockets in clear violation of the Constitution. He even attempted to host the G-7 at his own luxury golf course until he was forced to back down.

3. He is catering to billionaires and corporations at the expense of the American people. In the fall of 2017, mega-donors shelled out more than $31 million in political contributions to Trump and Republicans. And in return, they got a massive $2 trillion tax cut. Not a bad return on investment. As Trump told his wealthy friends at Mar-a-Lago just days after the tax bill became law, “You all just got a lot richer.”

4. He is using taxpayer dollars to subsidize his luxurious lifestyle. Since taking office, Trump’s golf trips alone have cost taxpayers more than $110 million dollars. His children have also charged taxpayers for costs associated with business trips around the world that they’ve taken, including India and Uruguay. Taxpayers even footed the bill for Donald Trump Junior’s hunting trip to Canada.

5. The Trump administration has been riddled with scandals and ethics violations. Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross held on to investments and never divested despite pledging to avoid even the appearance of conflict of interest. Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao has tried to arrange meetings with Chinese officials for her family business. Ethics officials have found Kellyanne Conway broke laws that prohibit government workers from engaging in political activities. The list goes on, and on. This has been the most corrupt administration in American history.

Income Tax Around The World

The U.S. is not a high-tax country. Our wages are low. We have extreme income inequality. And, our infrastructure is crumbling. Yet, we keep voting dipshits into office whom continue to cut taxes for the wealthy and big corporations. 

The Most Shameless Man In American Politics

Senate Impeachment "Trial"

This is so embarrassing. Republicans, do your job! Getting up and leaving during presentations of evidence during an impeachment trial. The whole Republican party should be impeached. These bozos are a bunch of lying sycophants.

Wisconsin Farm Bankruptcies

Wisconsin ranks second in organic farms nationwide.

Winning? Making America Great Again?

It's bewildering that conservatives (in this case, farmers) keep voting for politicians that continually do them harm.

The orange buffoon, and his willing accomplices, have done everything they can to hinder, hurt and destroy anything they touch. 

These know-nothings are doing everything they can to destroy local Wisconsin farmers. If they have their way, America will be left with only a few mega-farming corporations providing our food.
