To understand what drives things, follow the money

By Shannon Jewell
Marshall

We still don’t know how much money Trump has gotten from Russia, or what all of his foreign dealings are now. I think we all know though, that following the money usually reveals people's motives.

Right now, we can’t follow the money. All of that is being hidden from us, but why would it be by someone who had nothing to hide?

The 0.2 percent now, in addition to having so much financial power, are being awarded seats as leaders in over government agencies — the agencies that make and enforce laws.

As much as I would like to think that they won't make policies that will benefit themselves more than others, human nature doesn’t work like that. Further, these people, like Rex Tillerson, have spent a lifetime trying to make profit, not look out for the populace.

What we do know is that Mr. Trump has spent more in one MONTH traveling to his Mar-a-Loga in Florida 3 times ($11.4 Million) then Obama did in one YEAR ($10.6 Million). All paid for by the taxpayer, and the Trump Foundation gets the benefits of his weekend golfing excursions.
