Don't get caught up in Trump's hate speech on his Twitter feed or otherwise, it is a distraction to other issues.

Rudy Guilliani, the Trump surrogate, states the USA will expand by up at least 20 percent and deploying more troops into war zones.

There is no money for that. 

Before any expansion of the USA military takes place the wasteful spending as to end. A twenty percent expansion of the USA military is to line the pockets of Republican cronies.

Look for provisions with every military bill, spending or otherwise, to remove rights of women, minorities and the LGBTQ community. It will happen and the American people have a right to know how victimizing this White House is going to be. 

Yes, victimizing. When rights are removed from people based on hatred and discrimination that is victimizing innocent people. It is also beyond victimizing and human rights violations. I have no doubt the Trump White House and Congress will accumulate human rights violations on a regular basis. 

Don't forget about the elderly. AARP really screwed up this election. The entitlements are on the table.  The poor will do worse and the working poor will expand and grow. The repeal of the Medicaid Expansion is going to hack into the working poor and their families.

Count on it. It will happen. The argument over the Russel Amendment is already an issue.

The words human rights violation means nothing to Republicans.

Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.) and signed by 42 Democrats and independents – enough to filibuster the defense bill if they hold the line. It is being delivered to the chairmen of the House and Senate Armed Services Committee on Tuesday....
