The past 4 years...
The past 4 years...
So, many of you have seen me become rather vocal, especially on our Twitter (DrakoWSTeam) regarding certian world leaders.
Before any of you decide to comment on this, please understand that I am posting my own opionions and observations of the last 4 years under The Evil Peach.
Some of these things you did NOT see as some of you were brainwashed into thinking he was doing GOOD things.
So for those of you who want to start an argument over this, shut the fuck up.
You're "Saint Peach" did this to himself, and incited a VIOLENT fucking riot that got people killed with HIS OWN LIES.
So, what did the Evil Peach actually do for America?
Hint, he did NOT make it great again.
He made things worse for a lot of us.
He made his rich pedophile buddies much more comforatble with their own lives.
While pushing a law that makes "legitimate" sex work (including professional porn and the creation of adult art) ILLEGAL.
A bill that does NOTHING to stop what it claims to (Pedophilia and sex trafficking) while making conesnting adults in porn/art illegal.
This means websites like FA would be forced to take down all current and past adult art and become PG-13 only or close forever.
All sites that currently allow adult images/videos would also have to stop hosting all past, current, and future such content - or close forever.
Sure, he "drained the swamp" (which had some water in it) but re-filled it completely with TOXIC GOO.
The only real "promise" that saw any action was his RACIST BORDER WALL.
Which led to the rapid increase of PUBLIC RACISM and FASCISM.
Which led to the VERY LIVES of LGBTQ and PEOPLE OF COLOR being AT RISK.
Which was only confimred by the very public killings of black and brown men and women BY THE POLICE.
Who saw no reprocussions for their actions.
Which gave HATE GROUPS and TERRORISTS (like the KKK and Proud Boys) the ability to feel free in killing off LGBTQ and PEOPLE of COLOR.
So what good did he bring to the US?
IMO, not much, but here is a list of things he did accomplish:
-Reshaping the federal judiciary-
Trump installed three Supreme Court justices and 226 judges overall to the federal bench — all for lifetime appointments. Amy Coney Barrett became Trump's third Supreme Court justice on October 26, barely a week before Election Day.
All of which are CONSERVATIVE and many of whom believe that the LGBTQ community needs to be "cured."
Pence himself also had this same belief.
This takes into account that he PUSHED to replace a justice on AN ELECTION YEAR, something REPUBLICANS STOPPED OBAMA FROM DOING.
Despite its name, the new branch has not been established to protect the planet from extraterrestrial threats, but is tasked with protecting the US military's assets in space.
So no, we're not going into space.
However, this reform did NOT help the middle class or anyone that doesn't own a company.
According to The New York Times, the plan would result in a "huge windfall" for the very wealthy but would not benefit those in the bottom third of the income distribution.
It permanently slashed the corporate tax rate to 21% from 35%
Personal tax rates INCREASED
Apparently the Goal was to "encourage trickle down economics" which has NEVER worked.
-First Step Act-
The bill overhauls certain federal sentencing laws, reducing mandatory minimum sentences for drug felonies and expanding early-release programs.
So he is helping inmates, but not law abiding citizens?
-Defeating ISIS's caliphate-
Trump at times falsely claimed that ISIS is totally defeated
I saw NOTHING actually helping any of you brainwashed morons in the middle class who seem to think he was doing "great things for us."
Many times he would throw you under the bus just as quickly as he did HIS OWN STAFF.
Now for the Bad and the Ugly
These are the things he did that made America WORSE
-Charlottesville and George Floyd-
Trump's response to a deadly neo-Nazi rally in Charlottesville, Virginia.
His response also typified his controversial record on race relations and white supremacy.
The former president was excoriated by Republicans and Democrats alike over his response and his failure to offer a swift and forceful condemnation of white-supremacist violence.
GOP Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, often one of Trump's fiercest defenders in Congress, at the time said the former president's words were "dividing Americans, not healing them."
In the wake of the brutal death of George Floyd at the hands of Minneapolis police and the nationwide protests that followed, Trump also failed to rise to the occasion. He's done far more to divide the country than bring it together.
The former president had peaceful protesters tear-gassed near the White House so he could pose for a photo with a Bible at a nearby church.
(This one here is ACTUALLY A VIOLATION OF THE CONSTITUTION.)
Trump has elevated conspiracy theorists and people who've threatened protesters with guns.
Historians have warned that Trump's tactics mirror those of authoritarian regimes.
Trump has frequently employed racist rhetoric during his presidency, but especially during times of heightened racial tensions.
Polling has shown that the vast majority of Black Americans view Trump as racist, and his approval rating with this demographic stood at 14% in late 2020, according to Gallup.
-America's global image is in shambles-
America's global image declined significantly under Trump, who repeatedly insulted key US allies while cozying up to dictators.
The former president's tendency to push important allies away and isolate the US, including by pulling out of landmark international agreements like the Paris climate accord, had a palpable impact.
(He told the scientific community, with facts about Global Health and Climate, to "Go fuck yourselves")
Trump's handling of the coronavirus pandemic also left the US embarrassed on the world stage, and created a void in global leadership that China has rushed to fill.
(IT WAS HIS FALURE TO REACT APPROPRIATELY TO A PANDEMIC THAT HAS LED TO THE DEATH OF 400,000 AMERICANS, which will lead to a total death rate of 500,000 before BIDEN can get things moving to FIX IT.)
-Family separations and the deaths of migrant children-
He made good on that promise when coming into office, but was accused of human-rights abuses and -violating international law- by the UN.
The Trump administration's "zero tolerance" policy on illegal border crossings led to the separations of at least 5,500 families and saw children placed in cages.
The president of the American Academy of Pediatrics at the time described the practice as "nothing less than government-sanctioned child abuse."
At least six migrant children died in US custody, leading to widespread condemnation of conditions in detention facilities.
The UN human-rights chief, Michelle Bachelet, in July 2019 said she was "shocked" by the US government's treatment of migrant children and the conditions they faced in detention facilities after crossing the border from Mexico.
-Iran, Syria, and Afghanistan-
Trump's decision to unilaterally withdraw the US from the 2015 nuclear deal in May 2018 has induced chaos throughout the Middle East.
The former president failed to thwart Iran's aggressive behavior in the region through a maximum pressure campaign, meant to squeeze Tehran into negotiating a more stringent version of the pact.
After a series of incidents in the Persian Gulf region in 2019, tensions between Washington and Tehran reached historic heights and sparked fears of war.
(Not to mention FEARS OF NUCLEAR WAR BETWEEN THE US AND NORTH KOREA)
These fears were exacerbated after Trump ordered a strike that killed Iran's top general, Qassem Soleimani, in early January 2020.
The strike led Iran to retaliate and fire on US troops in the region, and dozens were seriously injured.
Trump's decision to pull US troops out of northern Syria in October 2019 was also among his most disastrous foreign policy moves.
The withdrawal induced a humanitarian crisis and created a security vacuum that Russia, Iran, and Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, an accused war criminal, all benefited from.
Meanwhile, The New York Times in June 2020 reported that US intelligence officials determined Russia paid bounties to Taliban-linked Afghan militants to kill US troops.
(OF WHICH HE DID NOTHING ABOUT, because Putin is his buddy)
-Replacing the Affordable Care Act-
Trump never offered a replacement for the Affordable Care Act.
Trump was impeached in the House of Representatives on December 18, 2019.
The House approved two articles of impeachment against Trump, one for abuse of power over his dealings with Ukraine and one for obstruction of Congress over his efforts to stonewall the impeachment inquiry.
Trump urged Ukraine to launch investigations into his political rivals as he simultaneously withheld about $400 million in congressionally approved military aid from the country, which is fighting an ongoing war against pro-Russian separatists.
GOP Sen. Mitt Romney of Utah also made history by voting to convict Trump, marking the first time ever that a senator voted to convict a president from their own party.
On January 6, 2021, Trump provoked an attempted coup at the US Capitol in relation to his baseless claims of mass voter fraud and refusal to concede to Biden.
Five people were killed.
(The Claims are BASELESS and he HAS NO EVIDENCE of Fraud, even though he keeps LYING and SAYING that he DOES.)
Trump was impeached by the House for inciting a violent insurrection over the Capitol riot.
He's the only president in US history to be impeached twice. EVER
Trump's handling of the COVID-19 pandemic will likely go down as one of the biggest disasters in US history.
To date 400,000 DEAD and that could increase to 500,000 before BIDEN gets to take ANY action.
Millions are unemployed.
On the day Trump left office, there had been more than 24.3 million confirmed COVID-19 cases in the US and over 405,000 reported fatalities.
The US has the worst coronavirus outbreak in the world.
As of January 20, the US COVID-19 death toll was on the verge of surpassing the total number of American service members killed during World War II.
Despite this, Trump repeatedly downplayed the threat of the virus and contradicted top public-health experts.
(Again telling the Scientific Community to "go fuck yourself")
In March 2020, Trump privately admitted to veteran reporter Bob Woodward (on tape) that he was -deliberately misleading the public-
Public health experts have cited Trump's nonchalant approach to the virus and tendency to reject science as one of the primary factors in why the US emerged as the epicenter.
Trump refused to accept responsibility for his failed response to the pandemic, blaming China instead.
(RACIST, FASCIST PIG)
-The US economy-
Trump often took credit for the robust US economy before the pandemic, ignoring that much of the growth began during the Obama administration.
The US faced one of the worst economic crises in its history under Trump, which was intrinsically linked to his disastrous response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Coronavirus lockdowns in early 2020 and reduced consumer spending led to tens of millions of job losses as whole segments of the economy sputtered.
Roughly 22 million jobs were lost from February to April.
The unemployment rate is still at 7.9%
As Trump left office, the US national debt was at the highest levels since World War II.
And US economic growth was set to average just above 0%
Trump also failed to bring Congress together to pass a second coronavirus stimulus package prior to Election Day as Americans across the country struggled to cover rent and other bills.
The GOP-controlled Senate instead prioritized confirming Trump's Supreme Court nominee
Placing the economy and the livelihoods of Americans on the back-burner
As the president of the US, Trump is the most heavily protected person on the planet.
The fact he contracted COVID-19 in October 2020 stood as a catastrophic failure and a national-security crisis for the US.
The president routinely flouted public health recommendations before getting infected.
Less than a week before he was diagnosed, Trump mocked then-presidential candidate Joe Biden for routinely wearing a mask in public.
Trump was diagnosed with COVID-19 just days after essentially holding a super-spreader event in the Rose Garden to announce his Supreme Court nominee
Attendees did not socially distance, and many were seen without masks.
Well over a dozen people in Trump's orbit tested positive for COVID-19 after the event.
Trump eroded democratic norms in many ways during his tenure.
He repeatedly attacked the media, leading UN experts to warn that Trump's rhetoric raised the risk of violence against journalists.
He threatened to deploy combat troops to American cities, over the objections of their elected leaders.
He ordered illegal actions like demanding poll workers stop counting ballots.
Trump's relentless dissemination of disinformation led historians and experts on fascism to compare him to dictators like Benito Mussolini.
"The United States – former vanguard of liberal democracy – has lost its way," V-Dem's 2020 report said, adding that the US "is the only country in Western Europe and North America suffering from substantial autocratization."
The former president's rhetoric was often viewed as a source of encouragement by far-right extremist groups
Trump frequently equivocated when asked to condemn such people.
Though President Joe Biden was the clear winner of the 2020 election, Trump refused to concede.
Trump rejected the results and made baseless allegations of fraud.
Even as world leaders began to congratulate Biden, a major sign of Biden's legitimacy, Trump continued to deny reality.
After weeks of rejecting the election result and attempting to overturn the outcome, the president provoked an attempted coup at the US Capitol on the day lawmakers met to certify Biden's Electoral College victory.
He riled up his supporters in an inflammatory speech, urging them to march on the Capitol and "fight like hell."
The pro-Trump mob that stormed the Capitol on January 6 destroyed property and clashed with police.
Five people were killed
-Now some more fun facts-
Trump made many false or misleading statements during his campaign and presidency.
Trump sought substantial spending cuts to major welfare programs, including Medicare and Medicaid. (You idiots need this shit.)
He rolled back numerous environmental regulations
He partially repealed the Dodd–Frank Act and hindered the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau
Trump dismissed Federal Bureau of Investigation Director James Comey over the agency's investigation of Russian interference in the 2016 election (Obstruction of Justice)
Robert Mueller's Special Counsel investigation (2017–2019) concluded that Russia interfered to favor Trump's candidacy
Six Trump campaign advisers and staff were indicted and five pleaded guilty to criminal charges
Trump pressured Ukraine to announce investigations of his political rival Joe Biden
Trump fueled confusion and conspiracies, as well as undermining public health guidance.
As president, the number and scale of Trump's false statements in public speeches, remarks, and in tweets has been identified by scholars, fact-checkers, and commentators as unprecedented for an American president or even unprecedented in U.S. politics.
During the first year of Trump's presidency, The Washington Post's fact-checking team wrote that Trump was "the most fact-challenged politician" it had "ever encountered
Due to Trump's trade tariffs combined with depressed commodities prices, American farmers faced the worst crisis in decades.
How is making the supply chain worse helping Americans?
The New York Times summarized the Trump administration's "general approach to law enforcement" as "cracking down on violent crime", "not regulating the police departments that fight it", and overhauling "programs that the Obama administration used to ease tensions between communities and the police".
Trump reversed a ban on providing federal military equipment to American police
He reinstated the use of asset forfeiture
The administration stated that it would no longer investigate police departments and publicize their shortcomings in reports, a policy previously enacted under the Obama administration. Later, Trump falsely claimed that the Obama administration never tried to reform the police.
Trump appeared to advocate police brutality
Trump called for a sweeping investigation into alleged wrongdoing by Hillary Clinton
In January 2020 the investigation was reported to be winding down after no evidence was found
The number of prosecutions of child-sex traffickers has showed a decreasing trend under the Trump administration
(Remember what I said above about SISEA?)
Trump called for a major build-up of American military capabilities, including increasing the nuclear arsenal tenfold.
He said he was open to allowing Japan and South Korea to acquire nuclear weapons.
Trump said the $716 billion America is now spending on the "arms race" was "Crazy!", after praising his increased defense spending five months earlier.
A controversy arose in November 2019 after Trump pardoned or promoted three soldiers accused or convicted of war crimes.
In November 2018, while California experienced one of its most destructive wildfires, Trump blamed the fires on "gross" and "poor" "mismanagement" of forests by California, saying there was no other reason for these wildfires. The New York Times described Trump's claims as misleading, noting that the fires in question were not "forest fires", that most of the forest was owned by federal agencies, and that climate change in part contributed to the fires.
Trump appointed Betsy DeVos as his Secretary of Education.
Which allowed FRAUD to continue to go UNNOTICED in college loans (schools opening fraudulent accounts against Student Borrowers)
(I'm a DIRECT VICTIM of this one.)
Then he revoked an Obama administration memo which provided protections for people in default on student loans.
The administration's "America First Energy Plan" did not mention renewable energy and instead focused on fossil fuels.
WHICH INCREASED GLOBAL WARMING.
Trump rescinded a rule requiring oil, gas and mining firms to disclose how much they paid foreign governments
Trump nominated Tom Marino to become the nation's drug czar but the nomination was withdrawn after an investigation found he had been the chief architect of a bill that crippled the enforcement powers of the DEA and worsened the opioid crisis in the United States.
Kellyanne Conway led White House efforts to combat the opioid epidemic; Conway had no experience or expertise on matters of public health, substance abuse, or law enforcement.
-2018–2019 federal government shutdown-
The federal government was partially shut down from December 22, 2018, until January 25, 2019, (the longest shutdown in U.S. history) over Trump's demand that Congress provide $5.7 billion in federal funds for a U.S.–Mexico border wall.
-Now the REASON I LIVED IN FEAR FOR FOUR YEARS-
The administration rolled back numerous LGBT protections
The DOJ reversed its position on whether the Civil Rights Act's workplace protections covered LGBT individuals
DOJ argued in state and federal courts for a constitutional right for businesses to discriminate on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity
The administration exempted government contractors from following federal workplace discrimination rules
The administration rescinded a directive that public schools treat students according to their gender identity
The administration rescinded rules that prohibited discrimination against LGBT patients by health care providers
The DOJ and the Labor Department cancelled quarterly conference calls with LGBT organizations
Trump signed a Presidential Memorandum to prohibit transgender persons from military service
In response to nationwide protests against racism and police brutality - Trump tweeted a 1967 quote, "when the looting starts, the shooting starts"
Trump addressed protestors by saying they "would have been greeted with the most vicious dogs, and most ominous weapons, I have ever seen"
The Justice Department limited enforcement actions to protect voting rights
Trump's Justice Department opposed minority voters' interests
Trump often sought to use the office of the presidency for his own interest. Under his leadership, the Justice Department, which is traditionally independent from the President, became highly partisan and acted in Trump's interest.
In the lead up to the 2020 election, Trump and Postmaster General Louis DeJoy, a close ally of Trump, sought to hamper the US postal service by cutting funding and services, a move which would prevent postal votes from being counted during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Trump has fired, demoted or withdrawn numerous government officials in retaliation for actions that projected negatively on his public image, or harmed his personal or political interests, including Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) Director James Comey, Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe, U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions, and Director of National Intelligence Joseph Maguire.
This EVIL MAN CARES NOTHING ABOUT AMERICANS and ONLY CARES ABOUT HIMSELF.
Which is why he has taken actions that led to the Stock Market SOARING admist a Recession that appears to be RUNNING towards the next Great Depression.
And since some actions he has taken THREATEN MY OWN SAFETY as an LGBTQ member - I cannot continue to "play nice" with those who have supported him and continue to support him
You fuckers told me to "Fuck my feelings" when I was asking for the country to come together.
Then he publicly allows the US to literally fall into shambles and allowed separations that lead to DANGEROUS acts from WHITE SUPREMACISTS towards LGBTQ and PEOPLE OF COLOR.
So, if you continue to support this man, you can shut the fuck up.
I'm calling out for accountability, and since you told me to "Fuck my Feelings" for the past four years, you have no right to call for unity now.
I wish Biden well, and do hope that we can end this violent history of the US.
I'll be more than happy to embrace those who followed "the wrong path"
Just as long as they are willing to admit they made a mistake.
I wanted ANYONE BUT TRUMP to be in charge.
My rant is mostly copy-pasted, with some of my own commentary from the following sources:
