Purge: Trump Plans for 2020

January 28, 2017

Hollywood Reporter:

Donald Trump in an interview with The Washington Post on Wednesday said he was already planning to run for reelection in 2020 and had his slogan ready to go: “Keep America Great.”

“Are you ready?” Trump asked the Post. “‘Keep America Great,’ exclamation point. Get me my lawyer!” In a recording accompanying the story, the president-elect can then be heard talking to someone in his office, telling them to trademark the new slogan.

Obviously, it is a continuation of the 2016 slogan, “Make America Great Again,” but where have we heard that new one before…? Oh, yeah, a horror film

“Keep America Great” is the same tagline used for 2016’s The Purge: Election Year, the third film in the series set in a dystopian future in which all crime is legalized for 12 hours a year.

    Pride (over-confidence) comes before the fall.

    If you’re not out there advocating for hand counted paper ballots instead of voting machines, you’re just asking for more Trump and GOP in 2020.

    And if the corrupt corporate Dem’s haven’t learned their lesson and decide to run another multimillionaire flush with Wall St., BigOil, BigPharma, &c. cash, then I’m certainly not going to vote Democrat in 2020. Bill Clinton and Obama pulled off a clever, but limited trick where they were able to have their cake and eat it too: They took loads of corporate cash and became servants to the donor class whilst still maintaining the facade that they were somehow liberal, fighting for the working class, often doing so through social issues that didn’t conflict with the destruction of the middle class for the sake of the elite, economically speaking. And it worked for a while, where people just blindly voted Democrat because that’s what they always did.

    However, recently people have become awoke to the trick – that on the economic front there are only two parties: The Republicans (D) and the Ultra-Right-Wing Radical Republicans (R). Running Biden or Cory Booker in 2020 is just asking for more Trump.

      At the state level when a Dem runs against a GOP in a red state and does so by pretending they’re a GOP-light candidate, the real GOP always wins.

  3. The transition team is of course rife with climate change deniers.

    From The Guardian:

    Trump has assembled a transition team in which at least nine senior members deny basic scientific understanding that the planet is warming due to the burning of carbon and other human activity. These include the transition heads of all the key agencies responsible for either monitoring or dealing with climate change. None of these transition heads have any background in climate science.

    Trump would seem to have more than a few conflicts of interest in this area.

    Please see:

    Trump is personally invested in this agenda. According to his latest financial disclosure records, Trump held investments in the fossil fuel companies Shell, Halliburton, Total and Chevron. His largest energy investment was in BHP Billiton, with the documents showing a stake worth up to $1.015m.

    Trump also had interests in Energy Transfer Partners and Phillips 66, which are behind the controversial Dakota Access pipeline that Trump wants to see completed. Jason Miller, a Trump spokesman, has said that Trump sold all of his shares in June but has produced no evidence to prove this.


  4. Pretty much everyone on his team at the White House is a climate denier.
