    It really is getting to the point where I do not have to say a thing! It has started to be that others are actually coming to me. Saying , “Can you believe that Trump?”. Or “did you hear the latest?”. .

  2. From what is becoming my favorite news outlet: Axios

  3. More from Axios

    The House Republican Obamacare replacement package is finally out, and the two main health care committees — Ways and Means, and Energy and Commerce — are scheduled to start working on the bills on Wednesday. Here’s your speed read on what’s in them — summaries are available here and here:


    Pre-existing condition coverage
    Continuous coverage — 30 percent penalty if people don’t keep themselves insured
    Special fund to help states set up “high-risk” pools, fix their insurance markets, or help low-income patients
    Enrollment in expanded Medicaid will be frozen
    Current enrollees can stay until 2020, and keep getting extra federal funds, until they leave the program on their own
    Medicaid will change to “per capita caps” (funding limits for each person) in fiscal year 2020
    A new, refundable tax credit will be available in 2020 to help people buy health insurance
    Covers five age groups — starts at $2,000 for people in their 20s, increases to $4,000 for people in their 60s
    It’s not means tested, but phased out for upper-income people (starting at $75,000 for individuals, $150,000 for families)
    Insurers can charge older customers five times as much as young adults
    All Obamacare taxes
    All Obamacare subsidies, including its premium tax credit
    Individual, employer mandate penalties
    “Cadillac tax” (until 2025)
    No longer will limit the tax break for employer-sponsored health coverage
    No payments to insurers for cost-sharing reductions
    Selling insurance across state lines (can’t be done in the “reconciliation” bill)
    Medical malpractice reform (can’t be done in the “reconciliation” bill)

  4. The New Yorker’s Adam Davidson spent months digging into what he calls “Donald Trump’s Worst Deal: The President helped build a hotel in Azerbaijan that appears to be a corrupt operation engineered by oligarchs tied to Iran’s Revolutionary Guard”:

    “The sustained back-and-forth between the Trump Organization and the Mammadovs has legal significance. If parties involved in the Trump Tower Baku project participated in any illegal financial conduct, and if the Trump Organization exerted a degree of control over the project, the company could be vulnerable to criminal prosecution.”

    • But…but…..that’s okay for Trump. He said many, many times that he can do everything so much better and he knows everything.

      Sad to know there are some Americans who believe Trump

  5. Don’t miss this one! It isn’t often someone from 45’s Administration actually tells the truth, but here it is —

    Transportation secretary admits that infrastructure plan is to make you pay tolls to corporations


    • The kicker is – this Transportation Secretary is married to Republican SEnate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.

      This woman’s parents are very big BILLIONAIRES in the shipping industry.

      HMmmm…….shipping…..and they are Chinese…..

      What could possibly go wrong?

      This newest plan for selling off our infrastructure reminds me of that GOP plan to sell our port security over to Muslims. Remember that gem of an idea?

      And who can tell me which GOP doofus brought us that idea? If you said Bob Dole – You win the Cupie Doll.

      Yes, indeed, Bob Dole was the lobbyist who was helping the Muslims to take over our port security.

      Luckily – the American People wised up before that particular GOP plan got pushed down our throats and the American People rose up so high – the Republicans had to back down.

      But this time – are the average Americans even going to look up to see what is really going on????

      Even if they did know – would they care to even speak out and say OH HELL NO…

    Tiny hands used his tiny hands to soften the GOP platform as to Russia at the GOP convention…
    Almost immediately after this, the hacked Clinton emails became an issue..
    The inner circle of tiny hands was aware of this before the fact. Rudy Guiliani (I do not care if I get his name right) predicted an October surprise…
    Roger Stone predicted that “John Podesta (Clinton’s campaign manager) will be in the barrel soon” Shortly after, Podesta email leaks began…
    Tiny hands is elected. Almost immediately, ALL of America’s intelligence apparatus reports efforts by Russia to hack election…
    Right wing radio nut Mark Levin launches a rant on how the “deep State” (entrenched bureaucracy which ALL Presidents do) is working to thwart tiny hands. But he goes too far and suggests surveillance was used…he has since dialed back and as predicted is trying to distance his personal involvement…
    Ever the reactionary, tiny hands seizes on this overstep. He may well be thinking “yeah the Russians helped me, but no one could know that unless Levin is right and my “lines were tapped” ” With the most sophisticated intelligence apparatus on the planet at his disposal, he does not investigate, he tweets that he has in fact been wiretapped. There is absolutely zero proof of this..
    Today, US marines and heavy artillery arrived on the ground in Syria. Stupid that. Boots on the ground are inferior to what we can do with drones. But drones don’t let you wave your dick like troops do. Syria has been a puppet State for Russia and formerly the USSR going back 40 years. Putin supports the brutal dictator there. The US is allied with the rebel forces…
    And here we are.
    One very smart and evil man who has been calculating against the US for years. And one very dumb and evil man who owes his office to that same smart evil man but is damned resentful about it.
    Syria is ground 0 for a pissing match between an evil genius and the mean playground bully he helped make the most powerful man on the planet…

    • And yet – the dumb and evil man owes his White House power to the so-called Evangelical Kristians – aka Pat Robertson, Franklin Graham, Jerry Falwell Jr. and a host of others who are so consumed with hatred for the black man and their never-ending desire for MONEY.

      Listen very carefully to the Trump minions when they talk about going into any foreign country – these poor souls really believe that Americans can just go in, take the oil and then repeat the same cycle – all over the MIddle East.

      BUT – the Evangelical Kristians add one factor to their version of the same story – God wants them to bring Christianity to those evil Muslims.

      Somehow – if they wrap it up in a neat little package and put God’s name of Jesus’s name on it – that makes it legitimate.

      Trump is not the problem He is the result of what happens when Religious folks (any religion) gets control of the government.

      Religious Folks seem to have this insane desire to start WARS.
