You need at this time especially to know that you are fit for something better than slavery and cannon fodder. You need to know that you were not created to work and produce and impoverish yourself to enrich an idle exploiter… – Eugene V. Debs

Viktor Orbán's War on Intellect
As the Hungarian prime minister systematically undermined his own country's education system, one institution stood defiant: a university in the heart of Budapest, founded by George Soros.

Alarming parallels, from anti-intellectualism and undermining education to fearmongering immigrants

EU heads speaking out on Trump/Putin alliance to weaken NATO. Time to pick a side folks, western democracy or eastern authoritarianism.

"We are (for the) first time in the history in a situation where the President of the United States and (the) President of Russia seem to share the same view on Europe: the weaker, the better, because they think that it's better for their own country, which is obviously not right," Jyrki Katainen, vice president of the European Commission and former prime minister of Finland said.

The US is quickly becoming an enemy to most of the world, that's for sure. They may not say it openly, but they know not to trust us now.

The opposite is true. They didn't trust us when Obama was president. He screwed our allies and bent to the will of our enemies. I am glad that disaster is gone. So is the world.

While I am indeed funny, that is what the electorate thought too. Hillary ran as the third Obama term. She got beat. If everyone thought Obama was all of that, she would have won. They didn't.

To prove your point, show us the ties with our allies that Trump has strengthened.
