Trump tries to undo FDR’s rescue of UK from Fascism

On Wednesday, our nazi president Donald J. Trump tried to press fascism on Britain, pissing all over the graves of the 34,137 US service personnel who lost their lives in the Battle of Normandy and northern France, fighting Nazism.

Trump on Wednesday retweeted three racist, anti-Muslim postings that had recently been put up by Jayda Fransen, deputy leader of Britain First, a Neo-Nazi organization that smears Muslims and immigrants. Fransen was convicted of “religiously aggravated harassment” for harassing British Muslims in a largely Muslim neighborhood.

Last year, a man influenced by Britain First killed British member of parliament Jo Cox for being insufficiently fascist. Her widower, Brendan, tweeted, “Trump has legitimized the far-right in his own country; now he’s trying to do it in ours.”

America’s Biggest Private Prison Company Just Hosted Its Annual Conference at a Trump Golf Resort – Mother Jones

Business for private prison operators like Florida-based GEO Group has been booming since Trump took office, and perhaps that shouldn’t come as a surprise. GEO Group spent hundreds of thousands of dollars supporting the Trump campaign last year: The prison giant donated $225,000 through a subsidiary to a pro-Trump super-PAC, according to campaign disclosures, including a gift of $100,000 on August 19, 2016, just one day after the Obama administration announced it would phase out its use of private prisons because of their high rates of violence. The Post also reports that GEO gave $250,000 to the president’s inaugural committee.

Only two countries think Trump is doing a better job than Obama did – Salon.com

Only two countries had improved views of President Trump compared to his predecessor: Russia and Israel. Only two nations had relatively unchanged views of U.S. favorability: Israel and Poland. Not surprisingly, the countries with the sharpest declines in confidence in the president and in American government are those that are our closest allies.

Secondly, that he is utterly uncontrollable by the senior staff who rapidly cycle through his increasingly chaotic White House.
