It's RED because of the RED LINE...
Trump = Obama = Bush = Clinton On 4 Core Issues
Published: March 26, 2017
Source: Washington's BlogOn a superficial level, Trump and Bush couldn’t be more different from Clinton and Obama. Indeed, pollsters say that many people voted for Trump because they wanted change … Just like they voted for Obama because he promised “hope and change” from Bush-era policies.
But beneath the surface, Trump, Obama, Bush and Clinton are all very similar on 4 core issues.
Bush intentionally lied us into the Iraq war … a war which had no relation with U.S. security or defense.*
Clinton and Obama intentionally lied us into various “humanitarian wars” … which had nothing to do with our security or defense.*
And the same idiots who lied us into the Iraq war are now trying to lie us into a cold (or maybe even hot) war with Russia.
And what about Trump?He campaigned on peace and non-interventionism
But he’s already ramped up the war in Syria.*
And the war in Yemen. … where the U.S. and Saudi Arabia are committing war crimes.*
And he’s already increased drone strikes by 432%
And Trump’s top advisor is predicting war with China and Russia. He said:
So it doesn’t look like peace is going to break out any time soon.
- Quote :
- We’re going to war in the South China Sea … no doubt
And sadly, top experts say the geopolitical policies pursued by Trump – which are very similar to those pursued by Obama, Bush and Clinton – will lead to more terrorism.
Lap Dogs for Wall Street … Making the Rich RicherObama, Bush and Clinton all pushed economic policies which made the rich richer, and the poor poorer.
Bush and Obama bailed out the big banks, threw fistfuls of money at the banksters, and otherwise rewarded Wall Street and penalized Main Street.
Clinton repealed the Depression-era law which separated regular deposit banking and speculation (Glass-Steagall), allowed the giant banks to grow into mega-banks, and acted as a cheerleader for unregulated derivatives. And Clinton – like Bush and Obama – decided that white collar financial fraud didn’t exist, or at least shouldn’t be prosecuted.
What’s the effect of these policies?
Rick Baum notes, using official U.S. governments statistics, that inequality steadily increased under all 3 presidents:
