I continue to find it very strange that even the networks don't report what Trump is doing with any detail. We have to wait for the evening comedians to let us know that, for instance, trump defunded the federal office on voting and THEN decided that he had to have everybody's id and voting record so he could do their job. They did cover, a little bit, the coal industry thing (not much), his ongoing efforts to make sure that big business can ignore any laws to do with monopoly, etc. Here are a couple of links (googled "what has trump done")

Nothing strange at all.

The same people who own or control the War Machine are pretty much the same people who own or control the Mass Media.

one small addition to the remarks by pdx rick.
"ne reality they discount: When L Paul Bremmer fired all of the Iraqi police and military three months after our invasion, those tactically trained men became iSIS under al-Zarqawi.
"
I would add: When we were invading Iraq we told the police, and military that if they would stay out of it they would keep their jobs. We then dropped thousands of leaflets to that effect so everybody knew (I used to have one but can't find it ). They stayed out of it, and THEN we fired them (they were a bit upset and, obviously, didn't know that our word is often worth nothing ).
