Triumph of the Corporatist State

Marching under the banner of some dimwitted version of Libertarian economics, the Supreme Court gutted American antitrust laws.  On another front, though ExxonMobil sock puppet Lamar Smith is retiring, his work is largely done.  DMSP satellite F-19 died, F-20 was executed by order of Congress, and F-18, long past its design lifetime, is looking shaky.  Soon the US will lack the ability to monitor Arctic Ice or provide US troops with crucial weather info, and potential replacements are half a decade away.

Meanwhile, Donald Trump and his scoundrels walk more and more the fascist line, threatening companies that make logical responses to his idiotic tariffs and blaming scapegoats (speculators) for the resulting price increases.
