I call on President Donald to stop Obama's illegal payments for Congressional staffer's insurance.
The repugs ( great insult name ) and demorats both freaked out when a poison pill inserted into Obamacare forced congressional staff to pay their own way on Obamacare exchanges. They ALL screamed that there would be a brain drain as staffers went to get jobs in the private sector. Bull. They're there for the power.
So Barry illegally took money from a different federal program and paid for the staffers. End of story. Poison pill erased.
Except there's no legal act involved. The money is still being stolen from another account and used against the law. Congress hasn't repealed the law. They just happily take the unappropriated money illegally and laugh at you.
Congress sure doesn't complain about this theft, since it's for them.
They'd have bloody screaming fits if the illegal money stopped and their staff had to pay out of pocket like other citizens.
So if Donald wants to hurt Congress, there's a way to do so that is not only easy, it's his legal obligation.
Might as well wish for unicorn rides and free kittens.
While I'm here I just want to repeat I really don't like Donald.
Not for any political reason. He's a mixed bag there. I liked his Supreme court nominee and love his mockery of the press. I despise his endless twits and mixed messaging on multiple cases.
No, I simply don't like his persona. The fake reality show stuff. The ego and bombast. Bully, fool, & self admitted corruption. How do you claim moral superiority to bribe taker Hillary when you bribed her?
That said, I didn't like the guy in office before him, either. Completely divorced from his religion and crimes in office. I didn't like that either.
The difference is I didn't like Trump years before he became a presidential candidate. Obama I only learned to dislike when he ran.
Probably because he was an unknown until then. I'd have probably disliked him sooner if I'd watched him mocking people on tv for years too.
The governor of California signed a bill making it a crime to use other than the preferred gender words. She can kiss my shiny metal butt. She is welcome to send storm troopers across America to arrest me. I will challenge zir will in court. It can deal with my rage personally or behind a wall of police. I will mock her to the skies. I'd go on but I don't know enough gender words
The cannon fodder Antifa may want publicity and a bit of the old ultraviolence when they go out with their droogs. The desire for a good old Reichstag fire is the leaders dream. Massacre of the fodder is traditional.
If Congress doesn't deal with this, and they don't want to, I predict bad things.
Congress dealing with this (properly) would mean indicting some extremely high level people, including a former president.
Mueller knows that his cover is blown completely since the info on Uranium 1 is now public (love how there's not even a peep from the MSM). So how does he play it? His actions should either confirm or deny the theory that Trump approached him with the angle - "either go down with them or help me bring them down".
Metaphorically, this is like diving down to the bottom of the swamp, grabbing all of the biggest gators and snakes simultaneously and bagging their asses in one fell swoop. I don't think you survive such an operation unless you bring a small army to help complete the task.
LOL ALL OF Y'ALL ARE SOFAKINGSTUPID, REMEMBER BENGHAZI??? IF YOU CARED SO MUCH ABOUT BENGHAZI THEN WHY AREN'T YOU ANGRY ABOUT NIGER WHERE LOSERTRUMPFAKERUSSIANEMPLOYEE AUTHORIZED 4 TRUEAMERICANPATRIOT SOLDIERS TO DIE??? TRUMP KILLED THESE US ARMY SOLDIERS IN NIGER AND ALL OF YOU ARE HAPPY ABOUT IT. SOFAKINGSTUPID RUSSIANLOVERS ALL OF YOU.
What makes it funny is the utter reversal of reality.
Bill Clinton was accused of rape. He's admittedly guilty of sexual misconduct, screwing an employee. Kennedy at least was allegedly doing an actress. Married, but, hey, Hollywood.
Trump is known to comment on sexual misconduct, but I don't recall any allegations, not that I'd be surprised. You know she'd be on the covers of Time and Rolling Stone. The Clinton campaign would have spent big bucks on research. I suppose it's possible they didn't want the multiple rape accusers to get more publicly but not to fire back is odd for Hillary's campaign. That's no proof Donald didn't harass employees but my doubts don't equal proof of guilt like stains on a dress or payments for silence.
Pity Julie is too cowardly to converse. Sad. So I ask the rest of you, what Are we doing in Niger? Is it Hillary's Libya fallout?
Maddow is quite good at her job. Remember Geraldo Rivera? Every show has the "just wait till we open the vault" format. The vault in her case is the latest lie from an anonymous source or agitprop from Vladimir.
I expect her to take Geobbels' job in the next Socialist administration.

The Special Prosecutor ( a title that sends shivers up a free man's spine.... like Holy Inquisitor. ) has leaked that there will be charges unknown against people unspoken for some reason unspecified.
Great! Let the guilty go to prison. I don't care how high in the Party rankings, what job they have, or what letter after their name ( only R if it's criminal on The News. Ds are never so pointed out ) the more politicians in prison, the better.
Even better, there is the glory of tv legal shows yet to come. Discovery.
That's when the lawyer for the accused, guilty or not, gets to ask the Prosecution about their ties to the enemies of their clients. "So you knew that my client's rival broke the law 2 years ago and refused to prosecute? Then my client's most vocal critic gave you.a folder paid for by the criminals you let go? And your staff has several people you hand picked who previously worked for my client's enemy, the one you decided not to prosecute? And we should believe anything else you say, why?"
Welcome to the jungle, baby.
Leaks and innuendo are powerful weapons against guilty and innocent. Criminal charges are public stands. Someone has to uncool from the bushes and be subject to scrutiny.
"This is because, while we were playing by the rules of dignity, collegiality and propriety, the Left has been, for the past 60 years, engaged in a knife fight where the only rules are those of Saul Alinsky and the Chicago mob."
