Journalist Abby Martin Sues State of Georgia Over Law Requiring Pledge of Allegiance to Israel


19-02-20 06:56:00,

After refusing to sign a pledge of allegiance to the state of Israel, the state of Georgia shut down a media literacy conference featuring journalist and filmmaker Abby Martin at Georgia Southern University. Martin had recently released a documentary critical of the Israeli government called “Gaza Fights for Freedom.” Now she is suing the state, claiming the decision is a violation of the First Amendment. Along with the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) and the Partnership for Civil Justice Fund (PCJF), today she filed a federal free speech lawsuit against the university system of Georgia.

Martin was dismayed by the university’s decision: “This censorship of my talk based on forced compliance to anti-BDS laws in Georgia is just one level of a nationwide campaign to protect Israel from grassroots pressure. We must stand firmly opposed to these efforts and not cower in fear to these blatant violations of free speech,” she said.

After I was scheduled to give keynote speech at an upcoming @GeorgiaSouthern conference, organizers said I must comply w/ Georgia’s anti-BDS law & sign a contractual pledge to not boycott Israel. I refused & my talk was canceled. The event fell apart after colleagues supported me

Twenty-eight states have already mandated loyalty pledges to Israel as a means to outlaw dissent. But in December, President Trump passed legislation effectively criminalizing the Boycott Divestments and Sanctions (BDS) movement that aims to put pressure on the Jewish state through economic action, along the lines of the anti-Apartheid struggle in South Africa. The law mandates that any public institution would be subject to losing all funding if the government deems that they are not doing enough to stamp out anti-Semitism, which, it explicitly states, includes any criticism of the Israeli government. In December, MintPress reported that the British government under Boris Johnson is planning to introduce similar legislation.

“The hyperbolic notion that conservatives are the ones being persecuted on college campuses has made blatant censorship campaigns against people for criticism of Israel, or other progressive protests, go completely ignored,” Martin wrote.

“Orders to Kill” Dr. Martin Luther King: The Government that Honors MLK with a National Holiday Killed Him – Global Research


20-01-20 01:27:00,

MLK DAY 2020. In commemoration of Martin Luther King’s assassination, we bring to you this article by Edward Curtin first published on Global Research in January 2017.


Very few Americans are aware of the truth behind the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Few books have been written about it, unlike other significant assassinations, especially JFK’s. For almost fifty years there has been a media blackout supported by government deception to hide the truth. 

And few people, in a massive act of self-deception, have chosen to question the absurd official explanation, choosing, rather, to embrace a mythic fabrication intended to sugarcoat the bitter fruit that has resulted from the murder of the one man capable of leading a mass movement for revolutionary change in the United States.  Today we are eating the fruit of our denial.

In order to comprehend the significance of this extraordinary book, it is first necessary to dispel a widely accepted falsehood about Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. William Pepper does that on the first page.

To understand his death, it is essential to realize that although he is popularly depicted and perceived as a civil rights leader, he was much more than that.  A non-violent revolutionary, he personified the most powerful force for the long-overdue social, political, and economic reconstruction of the nation.

In other words, Martin Luther King was a transmitter of a non-violent spiritual and political energy so plenipotent that his very existence was a threat to an established order based on violence, racism, and economic exploitation.  He was a very dangerous man.

Revolutionaries are, of course, anathema to the power elites who, with all their might, resist such rebels’ efforts to transform society.  If they can’t buy them off, they knock them off.  Forty-eight years after King’s assassination, the causes he fought for – civil rights, the end to U.S. wars of aggression , and economic justice for all – remain not only unfulfilled, but have worsened in so many respects.  And King’s message has been enervated by the sly trick of giving him a national holiday and urging Americans to make it “a day of service.”  Needless to say, such service does not include non-violent war resistance or protesting a decadent system of economic injustice.

In Honor of Martin Luther King: “The Pursuit of Peace” and MLK’s Historic Analysis of “American Militarism” – Global Research


16-01-20 07:57:00,

Consider some of what the Reverend MLK proclaimed about American militarism:

“A nation that continues year after year to spend more money on military defense than on programs of social uplift is approaching spiritual doom.”

“A few years ago there was a shining moment in the struggle. It seemed as if there was a real promise of hope for the poor — both black and white — through the poverty program. There were experiments, hopes, new beginnings. Then came the buildup in Vietnam and I watched the program broken and eviscerated as if it were some idle political plaything of a society gone mad on war, and I knew that America would never invest the necessary funds or energies in rehabilitation of its poor so long as adventures like Vietnam continued to draw men and skills and money like some demonic destructive suction tube.”

The assassination of Qassem Soleimani and seven others including a top Iraqi commander was “mad on war.” Soleimani was both an Iranian general and an Iranian diplomat at the highest level, a hero throughout the mid-east for defeating ISIS in Iraq and Syria. Literally millions of Iranians demonstrated in four different Iranian cities in mourning and in solidarity against the U.S.

Soleimani did not pose an “imminent danger,” the only possible way to justify the murders under international law. Just another bold-faced lie to justify American aggression. On Jan. 13, NBC News reported that Trump authorized the killing seven months ago.

The drone attack on Soleimani happened at Baghdad Airport – without notice to, much less permission from the Iraqi government. Two days later, the Iraqi Prime Minister addressed the Iraqi Parliament stating that Soleimani was in Baghdad to meet with him at Trump’s request so as to discuss a Saudi proposal to de-escalate the volatile situation between Saudi Arabia and Iran; in other words, Trump lured Soleimani to Baghdad on a mission of peace.

The Iraqi Parliament thereupon voted to expel all American troops from Iraq. Sec. of State Pompeo’s response? We’re staying anyway. So much for the cause of freedom and democracy.

This illegal, self-defeating, counter-productive, barbaric attack put us right back on the brink of a tit-for-tat escalation with no end in sight.

Martin Armstrong Warns Of The Coming “Big Freeze”


22-11-19 09:14:00,

Authored by Martin Armstrong via,

The BIG FREEZE is upon us.

The volatility in weather that our computer has been forecasting on a long-term basis should result in this winter being colder than the last. In Britain, the snow has hit an already flood-ravaged country as temperatures plunged to -7C. This is part of the problem we face. The ground freezes down and this prevents winter crops.

During the late 1700s, the ground froze to a depth of 2 feet according to John Adams. When John Adams set out to travel to Philadelphia, it was bitterly cold and there was a foot or more of snow that covered the landscape that had blanketed Massachusetts from one end of the province to the other. Beneath the snow, after weeks of severe cold, the ground was frozen solid to a depth of two feet. Packed ice in the road made the journey very hazardous.

In a letter to his wife, John Adams wrote:

“Indeed I feel not a little out of Humour, from Indisposition of Body. You know, I cannot pass a Spring, or fall, without an ill Turn — and I have had one these four or five Weeks — a Cold, as usual. Warm Weather, and a little Exercise, with a little Medicine, I suppose will cure me as usual. … Posterity! You will never know, how much it cost the present Generation, to preserve your Freedom! I hope you will make a good Use of it. If you do not, I shall repent in Heaven, that I ever took half the Pains to preserve it.”

On September 8, 1816, Jefferson described the weather in a letter to Albert Gallatin:

“We have had the most extraordinary year of drought and cold ever known in the history of America. In June, instead of 3¾ inches, our average of rain for that month, we had only 1/3 of an inch; in August, instead of 9 1/6 inches our average, we had only 8/10 of an inch; and it still continues. The summer too has been as cold as a moderate winter.

Martin Armstrong: The First Clean Air Act Was In 535AD


28-09-19 09:06:00,

Authored by Martin Armstrong via,

To me, all this propaganda that humans are responsible for climate change implies that somehow the climate is static and would not be changing but for human activity. This may make great headlines and inspire youth to create strikes and march upon the institutions of capitalism demanding their closure. However, any unbiased review of history reveals a shocking fact – the climate has ALWAYS changed and it too has been a force incorporated in the Economic Confidence Model.

Civilization has always expanded during warming periods and collapsed during global cooling. Simply correlating historical weather and disease reveals a very solid relationship. When there are global cooling periods, this is when disease rises and the worst plagues take place. When it turns cold, crops fail and malnutrition takes place weakening people’s immune systems leaving them more susceptible to plagues.

This global warming seems to have risen to a religion and it is being used by the Communists/Socialists to kill the Industrial Revolution and redistribute the wealth. Raising all the taxes in the world is ONLY pure PUNISHMENT – there is no program to reverse climate change – no fantastic machine. Anyone who was really a scientist just has to look at the historic data on temperature and you will discover that civilization thrives when it gets warm, and it contracts when it gets cold. But above all else, it has ALWAYS changed.

In 61AD, Seneca the Younger (c. 4BC– 65AD) the philosopher, statesman, and adviser to Emperor Nero who ordered him to commit suicide, wrote about the pollution in Rome.

“No sooner had I left behind the oppressive atmosphere of the city [Rome] and that reek of smoking cookers which pour out, along with clouds of ashes, all the poisonous fumes they’ve accumulated in their interiors whenever they’re started up, than I noticed the change in my condition.”

Pollution has had its cycles as well but this entire Global Warming nonsense implies that it has ONLY been post-Industrial Revolution that threatens the planet and we will all die in 12 years according to AOC, our latest entertainer in Congress. Low and behold,

U.S. Navy and Lockheed Martin Officially Introduce Directed Energy Weapons Into Warfare


11-07-19 09:11:00,

By Nicholas West

Nearly 4 years ago, I wrote an article entitled, “Lasers and Electronic Warfare To Be Used in New World of Drones and Anti-Drones,” wherein I detailed the trend toward using directed energy weapons in warfare. Unfortunately, it appears that much of the speculation at that time about whether or not this was merely the military-industrial complex looking to fund more boondoggle projects that would never see the light of day actually has become reality.

Fox News reports:

If swarms of enemy small attack boats armed with guns and explosives approached a Navy ship, alongside missile-armed drones and helicopters closing into strike range, ship commanders would instantly begin weighing defensive options – to include interceptor missiles, electronic warfare, deck-mounted guns or area weapons such as Close-in-Weapons System.

Now, attacks such as these will also be countered with laser weapons being added to the equation, bringing new dimensions to maritime warfare on the open sea.

By 2021, U.S. Navy destroyers will be armed with new ship-fired lasers able to sense and incinerate enemy drones, low-flying aircraft and small boat attacks — all while firing at the speed of light.

The system is called HELIOS (High-Energy Laser and Integrated Optical-Dazzler with Surveillance,) which appears to be a similar system to that of another one that I covered in that previous article from German company, Rheinmetall Defense Electronics, simply called HEL (High-Energy Laser), which they referred to as “HEL on wheels.”

As nation after nation becomes wired for war and neutralizes then surpasses each other, new methods must be developed to maintain military supremacy. This is the nature of military conflict and one of the prime reasons why the world seems to have new security threats each and every day. It becomes one endless problem-reaction-solution loop that only serves to benefit those who are invested in each of the three components.

Now that lasers are being applied to ships, we should be seeing further rollout across the military. Here is a video from all the way back in 2012 which showed where we are probably heading. If this is what is being shown to the public,

Martin Selmayr – Der Schattenmann von Brüssel


28-03-19 10:14:00,

Jean-Claude Juncker dürfte sicher jedem unserer Leser bekannt sein und auch sein wahrscheinlicher Nachfolger Manfred Weber wird vielen Lesern ein Begriff sein. Der Name Martin Selmayr dürfte hingegen nur wenigen Interessierten etwas sagen. Dabei ist Selmayr – und darin sind sich seine Freunde und Feinde einig – der mächtigste Mann in der EU: konservativ, neoliberal, machthungrig, ein waschechter Spross der Oberschicht, der die EU in den letzten Jahren nach seinen Vorstellungen geformt hat. Nach den Europawahlen könnte Selmayr seine Machtfülle sogar noch weiter ausbauen und damit dem Ideal eines demokratischen, transparenten Europas schweren Schaden zufügen. Von Jens Berger.

Wer den familiären Hintergrund eines Martin Selmayr hat, verfügt über einen gewissen Startvorsprung im Leben. Als Enkel zweier Generäle – sein Großvater Josef Selmayr gehörte der Organisation Gehlen an und war erster Chef des MAD – und Sohn des ehemaligen Top-Juristen und Kanzlers der Universität der Bundeswehr in München hatte Selmayr das nötige Vitamin B bereits in den Genen. Nach dem Jura-Studium in Genf, Passau, Berkeley und am Kings College in London heuerte Selmayr beim Medienkonzern Bertelsmann an und brachte es dort binnen zweier Jahre zum Leiter der Brüsseler Repräsentanz, also zu Bertelsmanns EU-Cheflobbyisten. Doch auch diesen Posten bekleidete Selmayr nur ein einziges Jahr. 2004 wechselte der Lobbyist des Medienkonzerns nämlich formal die Seiten und wurde Sprecher der EU-Kommission für Telekommunikation und Medienpolitik. Genau wegen solcher Drehtür-Karrieren ist die EU zu Recht im Kreuzfeuer der Kritik.

Der „Drehtüröffner“ des konservativen Selmayr war ein Mann, bei dem die Grenzen zwischen Politik und Lobby vollends verschwimmen: Elmar Brok, seit 1980 Europaparlamentarier für die CDU, seit 1992 Europabeauftragter von Bertelsmann, zeitweise Leiter des Brüsseler Büros und sogar „Senior Vice President Media Development“ des Konzerns – wohlgemerkt „neben“ seinem Mandat im Europaparlament. Auf die Empfehlung seines Lobby-Kollegen Brok hin wurde Selmayr 2010 Kabinettschef der luxemburgischen EU-Kommissarin Viviane Reding, die passenderweise nebenberuflich Mitglied im Kuratorium der Bertelsmann Stiftung ist.

Den nächsten Karrieresprung bereitete wieder Brok vor, der Selmayr seinem Freund Jean-Claude Juncker als Wahlkampfleiter für dessen Kandidatur zum Präsidenten der EU-Kommission empfahl. Selmayr zog die richtigen Strippen und wurde dafür von Juncker nach der gewonnenen Wahl zu seinem Kabinettschef gemacht. Fortan war der machtbewusste Bayer die „rechte Hand“ eines EU-Chefs, der von schweren gesundheitlichen Problemen gekennzeichnet und innerhalb der Brüsseler Behörden eher als „Frühstücksdirektor“ bekannt war.

Baby Boom To Baby Bust – Martin Armstrong Exposes The Crisis In Socialism


11-03-19 08:27:00,

Authored by Martin Armstrong via,

There is a real crisis in the fertility rate which has fallen to such a low level that all the socialism going forward will simply collapse.

What used to be the Baby Boom is now being called the “Baby Bust,” which means that in all first-world countries there is a real crisis for they have insufficient children to maintain their population size.

This has been one excuse for allowing the refugees into Europe.

As the population dwindles, all the social programs are collapsing for they were NEVER designed properly from the outset. They are based on a Ponzi scheme where they rely on taxing a growing younger population to service the benefits of the older generation. This was the entire scheme behind Obamacare. Force the youth to buy insurance they do not need to reduce the cost for the elderly.

These findings were a huge surprise to those in government. They did not think it was even possible.

The joke is that we will have more grandparents than grandchildren. A study published in the Lancet followed trends in every country from 1950 to 2017. During 1950, women were having an average of 4.7 children in their lifetime. The fertility rate all but halved to 2.4 children per woman by last year. They compared countries in Africa, such as Niger, where the fertility rate was 7:1 compared to countries like Cyprus where couples had just one child meaning that would be a 50% decline in population.

Even in Britain, the fertility rate has dropped to 1.7, which is similar to most Western European countries. Anything below 2 children per couple means a net population decline.

This data clearly warns that the Ponzi scheme set up first in the New Deal of the Great Depression is no longer sustainable. The cost of childcare has skyrocketed and the rise in taxation has forced women to work, making childcare mandatory, but not affordable for 2 or more children.

This creates an unsustainable future for taxation.

Lockheed Martin Unveils “Made In India” F-21 Fighter Jet


22-02-19 09:26:00,

Lockheed Martin offered India on Wednesday a new multi-role fighter jet, the F-21, in an attempt to secure a large defense order worth $15 billion, reported Reuters. The American defense company said the new plane will be specifically designed and manufactured for the Indian Air Force (IAF), and provide “Made In India” economic opportunities that strengthen India’s path to becoming a military powerhouse in the Indo-Pacific region.

The F-21 addresses the IAF’s unique requirements and integrates India’s defense complex into the world’s largest fighter jet ecosystem with the world’s biggest defense company. If the partnership works out, Lockheed Martin and Tata will produce the F-21 in India.

The defense firm said the F-21 would incorporate advanced technologies from its fifth generation planes, the F-22 and the F-35.

“The F-21 is different, inside and out,” Vivek Lall, vice president of Strategy and Business Development for Lockheed Martin Aeronautics, said in a statement.

Lockheed is not alone in competing for the $15 billion contract to build new fighter jets for India. Boeing, Saab, Dassault Aviation, Airbus, Eurofighter, and an unnamed Russia defense company have submitted bids.

The deal to replace India’s decades-old fleet of Soviet-era fighter jets is one of the largest contracts in the world right now.

India is not expected to announce the winning bid until after a national election in May. Lockheed offered to move its F-16 production plant in Fort Worth, Texas, to India, if it wins the contract in a boost to Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s “Made In India” strategy to expand its Air Force and defense sector industry.

The statement said production of the F-21 in India would create thousands of jobs for Indian industry as well as hundreds of US-based engineering, program management, and customer support jobs.

But hold on a minute, what about the White House calling for targeted investments in domestic manufacturing in the American industrial-base last October? How about the Pentagon saying it will reduce its over-reliance on foreign-made parts in American weapons?

For Lockheed to even entertain a bid that shifts a large Texas production line of fighter jets to India is confusing,

We Need a Martin Luther King Day of Truth

The SCLC is a civil rights organization formed by Martin Luther King after the success of the Montgomery bus boycott. — Image by © Flip Schulke/CORBIS

As Martin Luther King’s birthday is celebrated with a national holiday, his death day disappears down the memory hole. Across the country – in response to the King Holiday and Service Act passed by Congress and signed by Bill Clinton in 1994 – people will be encouraged to make the day one of service. Such service does not include King’s commitment to protest a decadent system of racial and economic injustice or non-violently resist the U.S. warfare state that he called “the greatest purveyor of violence on earth.”

Government sponsored service is cultural neo-liberalism at its finest, the promotion of individualism at the expense of a mass movement for radical institutional change.

“Nothing in all the world is more dangerous,” warned Dr. King, “than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity.”

How true those words. For the government that honors Dr. King with a national holiday killed him. This is the suppressed truth behind the highly promoted day of service. It is what you are not supposed to know. It is what Thomas Merton, as quoted by James W. Douglass, called The Unspeakable:

It is the void that contradicts everything that is spoken even before the words are said; the void that gets into the language of public and officials declarations at the very moment when they are pronounced, and makes them ring dead with the hollowness of the abyss. It is the void out of which Eichmann drew the punctilious exactitude of his service.”

The word service is a loaded word; it has become a smiley face and vogue word over the past 35 years. Its use for MLK Day is clear: individuals are encouraged to volunteer for activities such as tutoring children, painting senior centers, or delivering meals to the elderly, activities that are good in themselves but far less good when used to conceal an American prophet’s radical message. After all,

Martin Armstrong Warns Politicians Are Creating The Worst Economic Crash In History


01-11-18 09:46:00,

Authored by Martin Armstrong via,

Politicians have totally and completely misunderstood the trends within the global economy and as a result, they are actually creating one of the worst economic debacles in history.

I have explained several times that the bulk of investment capital is tied up in two primary sectors – (1) government bonds and (2) real estate. Because of income taxes, real estate has offered a way to make money in capital gains without having to pay income taxes.

Money has looked to park in real estate around the world for many various different reasons as in Italy it was the escape from inheritance taxes as well as banks or in Vancouver to gain a foothold for residency fleeing Hong Kong. In Australia, there was the Super Annuation Fund which allowed people to use retirement funds for real estate.

People spend more when they believe that they have big profits in their home.

The recession of 2007-2010 was so bad, recording the worst of all declines since the Great Depression, all BECAUSE it undermined the real estate values. People then spent less because they viewed their home declined in value.

As taxes have been rising and the average home value collapsed, the velocity of money kept declining. Especially as real estate values declined and interest on savings accounts vanished hurting the elderly who saved money for retirement and discovered their savings were producing less income, the velocity of money just plummeted.

The velocity of money began to turn up finally in the USA ONLY when interest rates began to rise. The retired could suddenly begin to make something on the savings for once in a very long time. This is something the ECB still has not figured out in Europe as it has wiped out both the elderly savings along with pension funds.

Nonetheless, politicians have gone nuts imposing all sorts of regulations to outright making it a criminal act for a foreigner to buy property.

In New Zealand, the new government wanted to declare foreign investment just illegal and in Australia, they made it a criminal act for a foreigner to own property and not inform the government they were foreigners.

…oder doch nur für sich und seine Karriere?

Ein Kommentar von Rüdiger Lenz.

Ich fasse es nicht, aber der „100 Prozent Kanzlerkandidat“ Martin Schulz und dann wieder „100 Prozent verschwinde endlich“ Martin Schulz, dieser SPD-Primus interruptus schreibt, dass es nun an der Zeit sei, für Europa zu kämpfen. Schauen wir uns einmal an, was Herr Schulz damit wirklich meint.

Die „Meine-Oligarchen-Zuerst-Philosophie“

Meine erste Frage war, warum hat er das nicht während seiner Kandidatur alles gesagt, was er gestern auf Spiegel online schrieb? Weil er das alles damals, also vor gut zehn Monaten, noch nicht verstanden hatte, nicht wissen konnte? Mein Gott! Viele Bürger hatten das alles ja vor über achtzehn Monaten schon erkannt. Nicht jeder hier wird seinen Bericht gelesen haben, also zitiere ich aus selbigem.(1)

Zitat Anfang: Wir befinden uns mitten in einem globalen Kampf der Systeme und wir müssen verstehen, dass dies schon sehr bald unsere Art zu leben verändern wird, wenn wir nicht handeln. Es geht in der aktuellen Situation um nicht weniger als um die Verteidigung des offenen Gesellschaftsmodells, das unseren ganzen Kontinent prägt. Es geht um das Überleben der freien Demokratie. Die Kräfte, die dieses Gesellschaftsmodell angreifen, sind zahlreich. Mit Donald Trump haben die USA einen Präsidenten, der die Werte des Westens verhöhnt. Der offen fremdenfeindlich auftritt und bei dem Nationalismus und die Verachtung internationaler Partner zur Staatsraison aufgestiegen sind. Aber „mein Land zuerst“ ist nicht ausschließlich die neue Philosophie der USA: Wir sehen sie in Moskau, in Peking und in Ankara. Allen ist eines gemeinsam: Ihre Verachtung für das Modell der aufgeklärten Demokratie. Zitat Ende.

Tun Sie nur, oder so sind Sie wirklich so naiv, Herr Schulz? Die „Mein-Land-Zuerst-Philosophie“ ist in Wahrheit doch bloß eine „Meine- Oligarchen-Zuerst-Philosophie“. Und jeder hat seinen eigenen Eliten-Club und Merkel den ihrigen. Was wenn Sie, Herr Schulz, Kanzler geworden wären, welcher dann wohl ihr Club geworden wäre?

Rechtsaußen ist die Regierung selbst

Danach folgt eine Schwarzmalerei nach der Anderen. Alle werden als rechts oder auch als rechtsaußen definiert.

Go explore World Vision for connections between Hinkley and Chapman. The Hinkley family and the Bush family were close. Very close. And go figure that Bush was also at Dallas the day JFK was murdered.

Lenon was murdered outside of the Dakota, where Rosemary’s Baby was filmed.

Then there’s the whole Lauryl Canyon, Doors, Beach Boys, Manson the musician, Beatles, and the drug running angles that are so amusing. I don’t know who killed MLK, but I highly doubt it was James Earl Ray.

Martin Luther King’s Dream Turned into “America’s Nightmare”: Extreme Poverty and Social Inequality | Global Research – Centre for Research on Globalization

Martin Luther King’s Dream Turned into “America’s Nightmare”: Extreme Poverty and Social Inequality | Global Research – Centre for Research on Globalization

10-01-18 08:12:00,

First published on January 8, 2018

January 7, 2018–Just as the U.S. Congress was preparing to vote on the controversial tax reform, UN Special Rapporteur Philip Alston released a damning report on poverty in the United States, on December 15, 2017. Alston, the United Nations special rapporteur on extreme poverty and human rights, and also a professor at NYC Law School, spent two weeks touring the United States at the invitation of the federal government. He visited California, Alabama, Washington, D.C., and Puerto Rico. Alston contends that 41 million Americans live in poverty, while the Republican tax bill will transfer more wealth to the rich.

In the introduction to his report he states,

“The proposed tax reform package stakes out America’s bid to become the most unequal society in the world, and will greatly increase the already high levels of wealth and income inequality between the richest 1% and the poorest 50% of Americans.
