It takes a lot of nerve for President Trump, the national Republican Party, and the national conservative news media to constantly accuse Democrats of having conspiracies against Trump when the actual truth of the matter is that there is a real secret conspiracy of very wealthy individuals (led by the Kochs), a large part of the national Republican Party, a big part of the national conservative news media, and many conservative thinktanks (which are really right-wing propaganda mills/factories), and many other organizations to one day abolish all of the federal government social programs that help the lower and middle classes and to establish a “Survival- of- the- Fittest” Social Darwinism in the USA.
Their ultimate goal and dream is to abolish programs such as Medicare, Medicaid, food stamps, college student loans and unemployment insurance benefits. But the program which these extreme conservatives hate the most and most want to abolish is Social Security.
The well-acclaimed book which does an excellent job of detailing all of the parts of this secret right-wing conspiracy was written by Jane Mayer. Its title is “Dark Money: The Hidden History of the Billionaires Behind the Rise of the Radical Right.” This book was selected by The New York Times as one of the 10 best books of 2016.
It won the national Helen Bernstein Book Award for Excellence in Journalism in 2017. Jane Mayer has also either won or been a finalist for at least 12 awards and prizes in Journalism. To my knowledge, no one has ever been able to successfully refute anything that is in her book.
Every American should read it and then come to their own conclusions.
