YOUR DAILY DYSTOPIA | 2017.04.18

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan was just another aspiring dictator, but, after yesterday’s vote, that’s all changed! Erdogan has now seized far-reaching, largely unchecked powers in Turkey after winning a controversial referendum that grants him far-reaching, largely unchecked powers. A variety of international monitors delivered a harsh verdict on the constitutional changes, and found that opposition campaign media coverage and activities was restricted, and that electoral authority had unfairly changed rules in favor of the Erdogan regime AFTER the polls had opened.

Naturally, this was all good news from the perspective of popular vote loser and aspiring dictator Donald Трамп, who called the Erdogan on Monday to congratulate his seizure of power.

As a reminder, former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn, who was ousted from his job for lying about contacts he had with the Russian government, recently had to register as a Foreign Agent for his work on behalf of Turkey.

White House regime officials say that Трамп was also planning to congratulate dictator Kim Jong Un’s recent military parade but then they reminded him that we’re getting ready to go to war with North Korea, so, Трамп decided to hold off on that call.

Popular vote loser and aspiring dictator Donald Трамп will sign the so-called “Buy American, Hire American” executive order during a visit to Snap-On Tools in Kenosha, Wis., Tuesday, according to two senior regime officials who briefed reporters on the order Monday.  The order will clamp down on guest worker visas and require agencies to buy more goods and services from U.S. companies and workers.

This order won’t apply to all of the private businesses Трамп still owns, including Mar-A-Lago, which will continue its policy of, “hire foreign workers and abuse them quietly ssh, ssh, Make America Great Again Hastag MAGA!”

NBC News recently reported on a story that sounds like the IRS will have both increased duties and reduced staff next year, quoting the the National Taxpayer Advocate’s fiscal year 2016 report. The report said, “There is no doubt that the deficiencies in taxpayer service are substantially attributable to a lack of resources.” It detailed the millions of taxpayers who were unable to get a response from the IRS when they called or sent letters, and pointed out that taxpayers have to dig into their pockets to pay for help from an accountant because they couldn’t get assistance from the IRS.

NBC News headlined the story with, “Enjoy Doing Your Taxes This Year, Because Next Year Will Be a Nightmare.”

Pretty sure taxes won’t be our only nightmare next year under the Трамп regime.
