There’s One Thing the President Won’t Put His Name On

IMAGE CREDIT: COMMON DREAMS We all know Trump measures his level of success by the number of times he can put his name all over buildings, but also anything else he can slap it on. Everything from steaks, to vodka, to water, Trump is always proud to throw his name on it. So, it really is telling that Trump refuses to call his key piece of legislation, The American Health Care Act, ‘Trumpcare.’ There are probably at least two reasons for this. First, even if the House passes ‘Trumpcare’ today, it is clear the legislation will require a longer,...

Rep. Nunes Laughingly Apologizes to His Collegues for Publicy Stabbing Them in the Back

HOUSE INTELLIGENCE COMMITTEE CO-CHAIRS ADAM SCHIFF (LEFT) AND DEVIN NUNES. IMAGE CREDIT: CAPITALBAY.COM/GETTY IMAGES U.S. Representative Devin Nunes yesterday publicly embarrassed his Congressional colleagues while simultaneously destroying the credibility of the House Intelligence Committee’s investigation into Trump’s connections with Russia by helping Trump further the lie that President Obama wiretapped Trump Tower. Probably realizing just how brazen his attempt to grandstand for personal gain really was and that he should now be thrown off of the House Intelligence Committee, Nunes apologized to his colleagues this morning. If there were ever a better illustration of being disingenuous, it escapes me....

Will House Republicans Make Americans ‘Sicker’ Just to ‘Dis’ Obama?

IMAGE CREDIT: CNN.COM The U.S. House of Representatives will vote today on the fate of ‘ Trumpcare,’ officialy known as the American Health Care Act. You would have had to be living in a cave in Afghanistan not to know that Trump campaigned heavily on a promise to ‘repeal and replace Obamacare, with something better.’ Of course, Trump never explained just how Trumpcare would be better than Obamacare, and apparently couldn’t care less to do so. Clearly, Trump’s only goal has been to keep his promise to decimate Obamacare, regardless of the cost to those who rely upon it...

Representative Nunes Just ‘Took a Bribe’ From the White House

IMAGE CREDIT: STAMFORD ADVOCATE Wow, just when we think things couldn’t get weirder, we just witnessed one half of the House Intelligence Committie investigating Trump’s involvement with Russia, Devin Nunes, sidestep his co-chair, Adam Schiff, to make an appearance at the White House in front of the cameras saying perhaps Trump really was ‘spied on’ by President Obama. To be clear, this sleezy move by Nunes just proves the House, and likely the Senate, is just too partisan now to be able to conduct a bi-partisan investigation into the Trump campaign ties to Russia–or any other matter. Two questions...

Trump is Now Offically ‘The Boy Who Cried Wolf’

IMAGE CREDIT: THE WALL STREET JOURNAL What happens when the President of the United States can no longer be trusted to tell the truth? Say, for example, that the United States enters into a dangerous confrontation with a foreign power? Are the citizens of the United States to trust the word of a man proven to be a compulsive liar? President Trump is not just a compulsive liar, but one who lies to the degree that he would tell the world his predecessor, President Obama, is a ‘sick’ man who wiretapped Trump at Trump tower during the 2016 presidential...

Trump’s Base Doesn’t yet Realize How Much They Have Been Played

IMAGE CREDIT: NEW REPUBLIC I don’t know about you, but I am tired of hearing members of Congress shoot their mouths off about how great Trump really is and how bad everything non-Trump really is. Enough already. It has become crystal clear that President Trump lied his way into the White House. The people who voted for him (I certainly was not one of them) have yet to realize that all he is doing is stuff that will only hurt them, not help them. Trumpcare hurts Trump’s voters more that any other group. Good work Trump voters. Not only...

Why Won’t Melania Trump Live with Her Husband in the White House?

Why does Melania Trump refuse to live with her husband in the White House? Who has ever heard of such a thing? First off, the privilege of living in the people’s house, the White House, is one given to very, very few people and those who have been given that privilege have always embraced it with gratitude and humility. So the question now becomes, is Melania staying away from the White House because she doesn’t like her husband, doesn’t like being First Lady, or is it both? Whichever it is, the answer isn’t good. Even if, as it appears,...
