Bush speaks!

“In recent decades, public confidence in our institutions has declined,” the 43rd president said at an event in New York hosted by his namesake institute. “Our governing class has often been paralyzed in the face of obvious and pressing needs. The American dream of upward mobility seems out of reach for some who feel left behind in a changing economy. Discontent deepened and sharpened partisan conflicts. Bigotry seems emboldened. Our politics seems more vulnerable to conspiracy theories and outright fabrication.” George W. Bush

This is from the asshole who never once had a criticism of Chairman Zero

This from the idiot that destabilized the entire middle east

This from the dipshit that invaded Iraq and expected to be welcomed as heroes

This from the traitor that sold our entire economy to the Chinese

This from the socialist that gave us medicare part D, erased a balanced budget and put us trillions in debt

Now this POS decides to speak

Now you see who the Bush’s are

Now you see who the Republicans arte

Now you see who the establishment are

This is not going to end easily or quickly

Before the end, this will come to war

Trump slams NFL

Fake news hacks at #CNN @ChrisCoumo are still at it

While Trump is in Poland making a speech with the Polish president, the fake news hacks at CNN are still blathering on about “The Russia connection”

The moronic idiots forget that our former ass licker in chief gave Russia the biggest gift that he could

On Sept. 17 2009 The Obamatard decided against the missile defense shield in Europe and moved to use short range missiles closer to Iran to deter Iranian missile launches

And I really shouldn’t call him a “Tard” because he is actually quite devious and vindictive

Sept. 17 is the date that the Soviet Union invaded Poland in 1939 and he chose that because of it’s significance

But the CNN hacks have nothing better to yammer on about than the Trump campaign’s collusion with Russia

They have most certainly forgotten Chairman Zero’s hot mic incident about having more “Flexibility” after his re-election

Nor have they remembered the Clinton foundation which received millions of dollars from Russian entities to ensure their acquisition of Uranium one , “A Canadian company with uranium-mining stakes stretching from Central Asia to the American West”

All while Mrs. Clinton was Secretary of state.

And why have they forgotten this?

Because they are hacks and purveyors of fake news

They do not report news

They make up political headlines to forward their agenda

Haters are gonna hate

Hacks are gonna hack

 

 

 

 

Obama administration grossly under reported number of Americans who were unmasked by NSA in 2016

“The Obama administration made history during the 2016 election by releasing statistics for the first time showing how many times government officials sought to unmask the names of Americans captured in accidental National Security Agency intercepts. There was just one problem: the number of affected Americans was grossly underreported.

The Office of the Director of National Intelligence, now under new management with President Donald Trump, confirms that the 654 unmaskings reported last year for fiscal 2015 was under reported by a factor of more than three times. The correct number was actually 2,232.”

Just remember this:

Before the election Trump thought that the NSA spying was A-Okay

Just a bunch of the good guys keeping us safe

 

Want some Trump?

Below is a key element of Trump’s new tax plan. It is in the article under “Losers”

Upper-middle-income people in blue states. The plan would eliminate the federal tax deduction for state and local income tax. If you are in a place where such taxes are high, like New York or California, you would lose a valuable deduction.

How’s that work for you? That is a super hefty deduction in the states that didn’t vote for Trump. I am sure it’s just a coincidence though…..

Pot calling the kettle

Trump attacks Assad, enemy of ISIS

Question: If Syria, a sovereign nation, attempts to blow up and kill the commander in chief of the army that just attacked them, are they terrorists?

I thought that we were sending troops into Syria to kill ISIS

But anything we do to degrade Assad’s air power aids ISIS

Assad was on the losing end until the Ruskies came in with air power and let him regain tons of territory and airfields

Now Trump is being praised by the warhawks, the Democrats, the Germans and even the French

Is this JEB that we elected?

Or did Trump just attack a sovereign nation not to look too cozy with Putin?

Either way, it is a 180 from anything he said in the past

And it does not bode well

 

Now that the rats are being unmasked, it’s time for Trump to… Well, you know

The Republic at Risk: Deep State Opponents Seek to End the Trump Presidency by Leaks and Sabotage

“We are witnessing the unraveling of the fabric of constitutional government, and only a fool can believe it will end well.

The nastiest opponents to President Trump inside and out of government apparently feel justified in using “any means necessary” to defeat and remove him. Every day sees more evidence of a desire not only to block his policies but to drive him from office. While it does not yet rise to the level of an organized conspiracy, it does raise serious issues of constitutional fidelity.

First, in the weeks following the November election, we saw street protest and marches, followed by lawsuits, then leaks from inside government, and then talk of “impeachment” over crimes for which no evidence exists.

And folks, in the words of Al Jolson, you ain’t seen nothing yet. It’s probably going to get worse.

The seeds of this “cultural embarrassment” over Trump’s victory were planted in the days immediately following the November 8 election:

  • First, there was the nonsensical insistence that his victory was illegitimate because he won only the Electoral College majority and not a popular vote majority. Unfortunately, the Constitution is silent on the popular mandate theory.
  • When that didn’t take hold, the opponents drummed up a claim the election was “stolen” from Hillary Clinton by Trump campaign collusion with “the Russians.” That became a constant media drumbeat for weeks and continues today.
  • Then as the icing on this half-baked cake came the orchestrated resistance to Trump’s immigration executive orders through desperate challenges in federal courts brought before Obama-appointed judges.

These efforts have at least three obvious things in common: desperation born of utter shock at Trump’s election victory; self-righteous elitist arrogance; and the active participation and support from the nation’s major media organizations.

Yet, there is another novel element interwoven in these events that is even more dangerous – dangerous not simply as a political obstacle to Trump’s agenda, but inherently dangerous to the survival of our country.”

There is no way that Trump, or his supporters are going quietly into that night

Cabinet is just a little heavy on Generals isn’t it?

Wonder why that is

#Trump signs E.O. to slash the size of federal Govt.

“President Trump signed an executive order Monday aimed at cutting waste in the federal government.

Trump signed the measure in the Oval Office, telling reporters it requires a “thorough examination of every executive department and agency” to find out “where money is being wasted [and] how services can be improved.”

The order does not seek a set amount of cuts, but it could result in a push to eliminate entire federal agencies or dramatically cut the size of the federal workforce.

Office of Management and Budget Director Mick Mulvaney will oversee a governmentwide review, which will involve outside experts as well as federal officials.

The president, flanked by his Cabinet secretaries, said the order would “develop a detailed plan to make the federal government … more efficient and very, very cost productive.”

Agency heads are instructed to provide their recommendations within six months to Mulvaney, who would submit them to Congress before implementation.

This executive order is part of the administration’s aggressive push to shrink the federal government.

During his first 50 days in office, Trump has issued a flurry of executive actions and pieces of legislation that have resulted in the repeal or delay of more than 90 regulations issued under President Obama on everything from the financial industry to the environment.

Trump is expected to release a budget blueprint on Thursday that calls for massive, across-the-board cuts to federal agencies to pay for a major military buildup.

The cuts could reduce funds for climate change research, conservation funding, foreign aid, support for public housing and the size of the federal workforce. ”

Trump tells state to cut U.N. funding by 50%

President Trump’s administration has told the State Department to cut more than 50 percent of U.S. funding to United Nations programs, Foreign Policy reported.

The push for the drastic reductions comes as the White House is scheduled to release its 2018 topline budget proposal Thursday, which is expected to include a 37 percent cut to the State Department and U.S. Agency for International Development budgets.

It’s not clear if Trump’s budget plan, from the Office of Management and Budget, would reflect the full extent of Trump’s proposed cuts to the U.N.

 

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson has suggested phasing in the major reductions over the coming three years.

One official close the administration told Foreign Policy that Tillerson has flexibility about how best to implement the reduction.

The U.S. spends roughly $10 billion annually on the U.N., and the cuts could have the greatest impact on peacekeeping, the U.N. development program and UNICEF, which are funded by State’s Bureau of International Organization Affairs.

The fate of other popular programs, like the World Food Programme and U.N. refugee operations, are less clear. The World Food Programme’s funding comes from the Department of Agriculture.

The magazine said it confirmed the potential cuts with three sources; one said the administration is considering cutting humanitarian aid programs by 36 percent.

Richard Gowan, a U.N. expert at the European Council on Foreign Relations, said the alterations would spark “chaos” if true.

“[It would] leave a gaping hole that other big donors would struggle to fill,” he told FP, pointing to how the U.S. provided $1.5 billion of the U.N. refugee agency’s $4 billion budget last year”

Republican rats still stalling on Obamacare repeal

“A key lawmaker working on an Obamacare replacement insisted Thursday that the healthcare law will be repealed, despite widening skepticism among even Republicans.

“Yeah, it’s gonna happen,” Rep. Mike Burgess, R-Texas, said at the Conservative Political Action Conference on Thursday afternoon.

But Burgess didn’t have an answer when pressed on when Congress will vote to repeal and replace the healthcare law — although he did say it will happen before the next CPAC.

“We will get it done,” he responded simply.

Burgess heads the health subcommittee of the House Energy and Commerce Committee, one of two House committees working on a replacement to the healthcare law. The plan is to use a budget reconciliation bill to repeal and replace much of the law, but Republicans are still struggling to nail down its details and ensure it will have enough GOP support to pass.

President Trump has promised he will roll out an Obamacare alternative next month, and House Speaker Paul Ryan plans to hold committee markups on the plan, too.

But there’s broad skepticism that Republicans will be able to rally around one plan. Former House Speaker John Boehner predicted Thursday that repeal and replace is “not going to happen.

But they could pass vote after vote while Obama was there to veto it

These scumbags have nothing else in mind than re-election

Right now they are afraid to jump on Trump’s bandwagon because it might crash

Perfect sense

77% of refugees allowed into U.S. since travel reprieve hail from seven suspect countries

– The Washington Times – Thursday, February 9, 2017

“The State Department has more than doubled the rate of refugees from Iraq, Syria and other suspect countries in the week since a federal judge’s reprieve, in what analysts said appears to be a push to admit as many people as possible before another court puts the program back on ice.

A staggering 77 percent of the 1,100 refugees let in since Judge James L. Robart’s Feb. 3 order have been from the seven suspect countries. Nearly a third are from Syria alone — a country that President Trump has ordered be banned altogether from the refugee program. Another 21 percent are from Iraq. By contrast, in the two weeks before Judge Robart’s order, just 9 percent of refugees were from Syria and 6 percent were from Iraq.

“There’s no doubt in my mind they would be doing whatever they could to get people in before something changes because, from their perspective, their motivation is to resettle these folks. It would not be the first time that State Department officials have prioritized facilitating someone’s entry to the United States over security concerns,” said Jessica Vaughan, policy studies director at the Center for Immigration Studies.

Mr. Trump issued an executive order Jan. 27 putting in place the early stages of his extreme vetting policy, including an immediate 90-day pause on admitting visitors from Iraq, Iran, Syria, Sudan, Somalia, Libya and Yemen — all countries where the government says it can’t be sure of its vetting procedures.

The executive order also called for an immediate 120-day halt to admitting refugees from anywhere around the globe. Mr. Trump singled out Syria in particular, saying refugees from there are halted indefinitely.

Late last week Judge Robart ruled Mr. Trump had likely overstepped legal boundaries and issued a temporary restraining order for most of the policy.”

Personally I think this is all going to end badly

Trump has every force aligned against him

All the elite of our nation, of the world, and all of the wealth

The judiciary, both political parties and every media outlet going

Me thinks we are in for a rough ride

Elizabeth Warren shut down on senate floor after speaking with forked tongue

“America got a civics lesson Tuesday night when Senate Republicans used an obscure rule to shut down a speech by Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) that criticized Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.), the nominee for attorney general.

Republicans took issue when Warren quoted from a pair of letters written by the late Coretta Scott King and the late Sen. Edward Kennedy (D-Mass.) opposing Sessions’s ill-fated nomination to a federal judgeship in 1986. King’s letter accused Sessions of racial bias; Kennedy’s called him a “disgrace to the Justice Department.”

It was all too much for Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), who said Warren had “impugned the motives and conduct of our colleague from Alabama.” In an extraordinary move, the Senate voted on party lines to shut her down, as The Washington Post’s Paul Kane and Ed O’Keefe reported.

The mechanism used to silence Warren is known as Rule 19, an arcane and seldom invoked provision in the Rules of the Senate. The rule states that senators may not “directly or indirectly, by any form of words impute to another Senator or to other Senators any conduct or motive unworthy or unbecoming a Senator.”

What, exactly, does it mean for one senator to “impugn” or “impute” another? That’s a matter of perspective, as congressional Democrats and other Warren defenders made clear when they rallied behind her on Twitter, launching the hashtag #LetLizSpeak to the top of the site’s trending list.

One thing’s for sure, however: the circumstances surrounding Rule 19’s creation were quite different than Tuesday’s exchange on the Senate floor.

Since its founding, the Senate has maintained an evolving list of rules governing civility and decorum in the chamber. As vice president, Thomas Jefferson included ten rules in his Manual of Parliamentary Practice that dictated how senators were to behave.

“No one is to disturb another in his speech by hissing, coughing, spitting, speaking or whispering to another,” reads one passage in the manual, “nor to stand up or interrupt him; nor to pass between the Speaker and the speaking member; nor to go across the chamber, or to walk up and down it, or to take books or papers from the [clerk’s] table, or write there.”

Those rules were published in 1801. The incident that paved the way for Rule 19 came more than a century later.

It was February 1902, and a feud was escalating between the two Democratic senators from South Carolina. Benjamin Tillman, the senior senator and something of a political boss in the state, had grown angry that John McLaurin, his protege, was allowing Senate Republicans to court him on some issues, including the annexation of the Philippines.

Furious that McLaurin was colluding with the other side of the aisle, Tillman used a Feb. 22, 1902, speech on the Senate floor to harangue the younger senator. Gesturing toward McLaurin’s empty chair, Tillman accused his counterpart of treachery and corruption, saying he had succumbed to “improper influences,” according to a Senate history of the dispute.

When McLaurin caught wind of Tillman’s remarks, he rushed into the chamber and shouted that Tillman was telling a “willful, malicious and deliberate lie.”

A fistfight erupted. As Senate historians recounted, “The 54-four-year-old Tillman jumped from his place and physically attacked McLaurin, who was 41, with a series of stinging blows. Efforts to separate the two combatants resulted in misdirected punches landing on other members.”

When the fight ended, the Senate voted to censure the two men. A panel found that their behavior was “an infringement of the privileges of the Senate, a violation of its rules and derogatory to its high character, tending to bring the body itself into public contempt.”

The episode prompted the senate to tighten its rules governing decorum in floor debate. Rule 19 (sections two and three, to be precise) was adopted later that year.”

I would much rather see Sessions punch her upside the ceremonial head dress

Records: Soros Fund Execs Funded Paul Ryan, Marco Rubio, Jeb Bush, John McCain, John Kasich, Lindsey Graham in 2016

“Employees of a hedge fund founded by the king of the Institutional Left, billionaire and Democratic Party mega-donor George Soros, donated tens of thousands of dollars to top Republicans who fought against President Donald Trump in 2016, donation records compiled by the Center for Responsive Politics show.

Soros Fund Management, a former hedge fund that serves now as an investment management firm, was founded by progressive billionaire George Soros in 1969. It has risen to become one of the most profitable hedge funds in the industry. Employees of the firm are heavily involved in backing political candidates giving millions upon millions to groups that were supporting failed 2016 Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Rodham Clinton for the presidency.

But more importantly, perhaps, than the unsurprising giant lump sums of cash funneled into Democratic Party and Clinton coffers is the revelation thanks to the Center for Responsive Politics that employees of the Soros firm—now run by his son Robert Soros—pumped tens of thousands of dollars into the campaigns of top anti-Trump Republicans over the course of 2016.”
