Trump Takes Drugs to Keep His Hair from Falling Out?...and other fun stuff

In case anybody tells you Trump raw dogging a porn star is "fake news", you might mention that Stormy has taken and passed a polygraph test and Trump hasn't. The Miami Herald has  Some suggestions for Trump.

Trump claims he doesn't have a history of heart disease, he just takes drugs that are recommended for people who have a history of heart disease. What he does have is a history of eating crappy food. Trumps medications explained (What we have been told so far)

Trump has installed his son in law, Jared Kushner, into sensitive positions and negotiations on behalf of the US government. But there's a problem. Kushner can't get a Security Clearance.

“The unprecedented delay in clearance represents a violation of security norms and suggests that Kushner continues to receive special treatment due to his relationship to President Trump. 
No shit?
You want to know what else it suggests? It suggests that the FBI sees Jared Kushner as too crooked, too big a risk, to be trustworthy.
Of course Trump tweets Dems caved in his government shutdown, but lets take notice of a few things. Trump was holding children's healthcare (CHIP) hostage and contingent on getting $18 billion in tax payer money for his worthless wall that he had promised Mexico would pay for.  Well now that the smoke has cleared it turns out that DEMS got CHIP and Trump didn't get his wall. It remains to be seen whether Republicans remain true to their unspeakably cruel intention to break up families of hardworking people who were brought to this country as children but have not had any problems, pay taxes, and contribute to this nation in every way possible, including many who currently serve in the military.

Lamar Let's the World Know Supreme Court Justice Gorsuch is a GOP Plant

I enjoyed having dinner tonight at the home of Senator John Cornyn and his wife Sandy with our newest Supreme Court Justice, Neil Gorsuch, Transportation Secretary Chao and a few of my other Senate colleagues to talk about important issues facing our country.

The issues of the day are most definitely not what a Supreme Court justice should be discussing with Republican congressional leadership. And that they had this clearly political and social get together the evening before the Supreme Court announced it will expedite considering the Trump administration’s request to overturn a judge’s ruling and allow the Trump administration to dismantle the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. Only the most pressing issue of the day. Which Gorsuch should now have to recuse himself from.
Gorsuch Should now recuse himself from the DACA case currently before the court

Quotes of the Day from the Fusion GPS investigation:

Quotes of the Day from the Fusion GPS investigation:

"So we did things like we looked at the golf courses and whether they actually ever made any money and how much debt they had. We looked at the bankruptcies, how could somebody go through so many bankruptcies, you know, and still have a billion dollars in personal assets."

“I will get Putin on this program and we will get Donald elected,” Mr. Sater wrote.

"As it happens, Felix Sater was, you know, connected to the same Russian crime family"

So shutting down the government and blaming Democrats because they won't waste $18 billion on a wall is just a diversion from Trump's Putin problem.

It's time to get the Russian pawn out of the office of the Presidency!

GOP operative Bill Krystal: "...Trump’s just flipping out.”

Richard Painter, chief White House ethics lawyer under President George W. Bush, said, regarding Trump's comments about North Korea, “This Tweet alone is grounds for removal from office under the 25th Amendment. This man should not have nukes.”

Donald Trump tweeted that he holds the power to suddenly send the USA into thermonuclear war with an irritating but meaningless country in Asia because he wants to prove his "button" is bigger.

So even GOP operatives are freaking out over Trump's dangerous mental instability but what are Republican Senators doing about it?

The Lying...Make It Stop!

How do you tell when Putin Pawn Trump is lying?

When President Trump signed the $1.5 trillion tax cut bill on Friday at the White House, he made a bold claim — that his "legislative approvals" were off the charts. "No. 1 in the history of our country," he said, citing 88 as the number of bills he had signed into law.

It was 96, actually, possibly the only time in history Putin's pawn Trump has under exaggerated his claim to magnificence.  But it didn't take long for him to get to another whopper of a lie...

"Harry Truman had more legislative approvals than any other president and — a record long held," Trump said. "And we beat him on legislative approvals, for which I get no credit."
The Truman Library called Trump out:
We don't have an exact figure handy, but around 240-250. According to Statutes at Large, Congress passed 292 bills in that session. Subtracting from January-April, minus few vetoes, gets to that figure.

NPR has the entire list of Bills that Trump has signed.. Unfortunately they list them by title rather than what they actually do. Republicans are notorious for giving grandiose titles to things that destroy America's middle class.

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.
