Trump is the Russian President...Why Isn't This THE Headline Every Day on Every News Program?

Voters, those who were not turned back from the polls on election day, voted for Hillary Clinton by 3 million votes over Donald Trump.

The January intelligence assessment implied that the Russian hackers had achieved broader access than has been assumed. Without elaborating, the report said the Russians had “obtained and maintained access to multiple U.S. state and local election boards.”

Apart from the Russian influence campaign intended to undermine Mrs. Clinton and other Democratic officials, the impact of the quieter Russian hacking efforts at the state and county level has not been widely studied. Federal officials have been so tight-lipped that not even many election officials in the 21 states the hackers assaulted know whether their systems were compromised, in part because they have not been granted security clearances to examine the classified evidence.

This is a national emergency! Why are we holding back?

A call for investigation of Russian involvement in electing Donald Trump should be the first thing out of every progressive politician's mouth at every opportunity.

Is It Time to Sell Your Healthcare Stocks?

Insurance companies have ceased to be useful. They are merely gatekeepers between the working providers of healthcare services and the people who need care. It's time to destroy the health insurance model that has grown so obscenely obese more resembling a parasite than anything useful in American society. Hospitals have more people performing administrative duties and processing insurance forms than they have doctors and nurses. 

Pharmaceutical companies have become tools for capital speculators. The price of prescription drugs rises, not due to the cost of production, but relative to how much the market can pay to stay alive. Big Pharma lobbyists spend millions bribing our legislators, congressmen and senators to keep cannabis illegal, reaping billions in excess profits as a result. 

It's time for a revolution in our healthcare system.

"We Must Not Look Away"

"Violence on many sides" actually means just one side.

The GOP Does It and NO, Dems DON"T Do It Too...

I admire a good thought well expressed. Leonard Pitts has lots of them in this article. I conclude that there is a shortage of "Fair Observers"...
A party that once provided a sober conservative counterweight to the Democrats’ more liberal impulses has flat out lost its mind, given itself over to rage, fear, schoolyard taunts and bizarre conspiracy theories. Which leaves me impatient with those who frame our political divide as if the issue were that left and right had equally abandoned the center. No fair observer can believe that.

We all know how they got that way: voter suppression, gerrymandering, obstruction, religious fanaticism, and the non-stop construction and maintenance of a pile of Big Lies that Jon Stewart famously called "Bullshit Mountain,"

It's All Right HERE

Chuck Flieschmann just voted to allow people who are under investigation by the FBI for Treason to keep their security clearance.

Chuck Flieschmann just voted to allow people who are under investigation by the FBI for Treason to keep their security clearance. 

"The measure would have barred the government from issuing or maintaining a security clearance for any White House individual “under a criminal investigation by a Federal law enforcement agency for aiding a foreign government.”

I can't believe I am actually typing those words. More importantly, I can;t believe I am the one bring this to you instead of every national media outlet going off in second coming type.

How low has the GOP sunk?

The Good News is Trump Support in TN at 38%...But...

How in the name of sanity is this possible?
A poll conducted by the Office of Consumer Research at Middle Tennessee State University’s Jones College of Business reports that the surveyed Tennesseans trust President Donald Trump a bit more than Gov. Bill Haslam.
Could this be the answer?

 Democrats place higher trust in mainstream media outlets (ABC, NBC, CBS, CNN, MSNBC) than do Republicans, whereas Republicans have a relatively higher level of trust in Fox News.

Some Kind of Tipping Point Here: Is Trump Mobster or a Dictator

Clipped from The New Republic piece:

It was perhaps inevitable that Trump would run into conflict with the likes of Comey, Bharara, and Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates (whom Trump also fired, after she refused to defend his executive order banning people from seven Muslim-majority countries). Trump supporters might dismiss these figures as Washington insiders—inhabitants of “the swamp”—but they are more accurately seen as representatives of the legal and administrative state. They are all experts in the law and bureaucracy; they know the rules, understand why the rules exist, and enforce them. In other words, they are the polar opposite of Trump, an anti-professional to whom laws were meant to be broken.
