In March of 2016, then-candidate Donald Trump told The Washington Post he could eliminate the entire U.S. debt in eight years. Now that he’s president, Trump is doing the exact opposite.

Trump’s budget — his own budget — projects debt held by the public will hit $22.8 trillion by 2025, more than 50 percent higher than the year he took office. (Debt held by the public was $14.7 trillion in 2017.)
Woops.

The point of simulations is to lose, and it's easy to do.
Think of it this way: Imagine someone is breaking into your house. Give them appropriate tools a burglar should have (in this hypothetical, you would know more or less what the burglar has). Now imagine you do have some defenses (alarms, locks, etc) and you know what their weakpoints are and try to figure out the best way that the burglar could use their tools to exploit these weaknesses.

I suspect it's overblown based on kak and this older article but still it's odd to see it popping up everywhere all of a sudden

In a war between Russia, China and the US it is Brazil that would win.

Based on that? Its not only overblown, its fantasy. Destroying our planes before they even leave the ground?

USAR has more aircrafts than China, Russia, India, UK, Germany, and France combined. That doesnt include the Navy. Or the marines air force. They would have to attack every nation in the world the US can project from as well as our naval ships.

Would taxing the capital of the rich be any more viable than taxing their income due to all the tax evasion?

I wanna see what's in it. Donnie hasn't tweeted since it dropped. There's also the question of what this was about.
Remember, the House can always pick up where Mueller left off and ensure justice is served if need be. There should, at bare minimum, be charges of obstruction of justice.

I mean, we kinda know it wasn't conspiracy theory nonsense.

It's not really a question of whether Trump did anything with the Russians it's a question of whether he did anything Criminal.

There were more than a few indictments throughout the probe man.
