We always hear this so often from politicians…something like, “Obamacare has failed hard working Americans”, or, “We need to cut taxes so hard working Americans can afford to live the American dream.”, or, “Illegal immigrants are taking the jobs away from hard working Americans.” (um.. if their jobs have been taken away, how can they be hard working? Nevermind.. not the theme of this post.)
OMG… People, And Business, Fear Being In A Trump Tweet Now?
Presidential tweet intimidation??Amazing how we’ve descended into some abyss even further. You constantly hear from the far right at how much the Constitution means to them to the point that they are frothing at the mouth, fearing someone will take away their Second Amendment or some other ridiculous fear. Then I read something like this….
I have no idea who this Jack Schauer is but he is absolutely correct and I have no problem using his quote.
Well, with the Senate Intelligence Committeedeclaring there is no evidence of Obama having wire tapped Trump, and likely FBI’s Comey confirming it this coming Monday, this all pretty much is yet another outright… well… you gotta call it a lie.
I know it plays into the hands of the Trump supporters that all those unauthorized White House leaks are the result of all the Deep State liberal spies and saboteurs left in Hillary’s State Department and the Obama AG appointees around the country, but, sorry, it ain’t all that. Some of this is actually normal.
Press Secretary Spicer showing off size of smaller Republican plan. You think there’s a reason the Obamacare stack is larger?
This is from New York magazine (so is the pic above)…
“Today was not a good day for the American Health Care Act. Almost no one enjoyed their first taste of the House GOP’s “Obamacare Lite.” The bill is too liberal for tea-party Republicans and interest groups; too regressive for moderate Republicans and Democrats; and too poorly thought-out for health-care wonks of all stripes.”
No question there’s enough conflict,confrontation, and confusion emanating from the White House and spreading out across the media and America to fill a… well, fill a septic tank. But while we’ve all been focused on
A recent typical rowdy townhall conducted by Rep. Buddy Carter (R-GA)
While I find myself gratified in seeing all the anti-Trump sentiment being expressed so vehemently at these townhalls around the country, I am also dismayed at the total waste of time these things are for the elected officials holding them, if not for the public attending them. I certainly understand the idea of townhall meetings
“How can you trust him with the nuclear codes? You can’t do it.” President Obama about Trump, early November, 2016
Trusting him is a moot issue at this point but it does conjure up certain questions about the President’s ready access to the nuclear football, and the possibility of him using it. To understand that part one has to understand what the nuclear football is, and isn’t.
The wife of deceased Navy Seal Ryan Owens at Trump’s first address to Congress
This is being written following Trump’s first address to Congress and while I found little out of the ordinary of any substance, his most notable remarks were regarding the demise of Navy Seal William “Ryan” Owens during that recent mission in Yemen that went badly, but has been lauded as a success. Trump’s remarks were fitting for the
As this is being written the democrats have elected a new committee chairman, former Obama Labor Secretary, Tom Perez, and everyone seems… united? I suppose all that will come true or not as time and events unfold. But what’s been nagging at me is all this bally-who about the Dems being in such disarray after Trump’s win and the subsequent losses in congressional seats and governorships.
In part 1 I discussed four of the five points I was using to illustrate the media’s role in our country. The idea was, and still is, to suggest an alternative thought approach toward this popular idea that the press, the media, whatever, is hell-bent on upsetting America to its own ends. Here’s a quick review.
Every president since the beginning of this country has had some issues with the media. In some cases it’s outright disdain, like our current president. Over the decades the polls have shown a gradual “discomfort” with the press from even the general public. In general the press has been accused of being liberally biased, presenting
Yesterday’s theatrics in Florida just continues to confound America while at the same time give him the fix he needs to make it another week in the White House. The country is in a identity quandary, the White House is in some level of administrative chaos, Russia is testing us, ICE is rounding up the good, the bad, and the ugly
“You know what it is? Here’s the thing. The public isn’t — you know, they read newspapers, they see television, they watch. They don’t know if it’s true or false because they’re not involved. I’m involved. I’ve been involved with this stuff all my life. But I’m involved. So I know when you’re telling the truth or when you’re not. I just see many, many untruthful things.”
Ladies and gentlemen.. our President of the United States.
