You can't make this stuff up ..

I've never seen anything like it. Immediately following the midterm elections Trump began begging the United States Government not to investigate him. Of course Trump attached a little threat to it as well ... saying if you investigate me I won't work with you. Then Trump takes it up a notch and says, if you investigate me I'll investigate you back! And I'll investigate you to the point where the Government grinds to a halt … and I can do this because I own the Senate ... paraphrasing of course.

Healthcare

Republicans talked nonstop about Healthcare for the last 10 years. In fact the centerpiece of the Republican Party for the last 10 years is denying and repealing Government funded Healthcare.

So Pubs, where the hell are you now! Midterm elections are here and your candidates have nothing to say about Healthcare beyond blubbering the term preexisting condition repeatedly.

Instead of talking about his wonderful economy and how it can benefit the HEALTH of the Nation Trump focuses on a caravan of immigrants who may or may not get here in a couple months and have no weapons … and why we need to hate and fear them.

The elephant in the room … Trump robbed bank and Healthcare doesn't fit in the equation. Spending cuts and tariffs are the plan for financing the trillions of dollars in tax cuts for the wealthiest Americans.

Your cost of living goes up. Trump's cost of living goes down.

Merrick Garland vs the Swamp

Anyone remember what disqualified Merrick Garland? He was nominated by President Obama as Supreme Court Justice back in Mid-March of 2016? Obama still had around 10 months left to serve as President. Republicans could have investigated all they wanted ...they controlled the swamp.

So to all the 'hair on fire' Republicans here's a thought ... 10 months.. that's 2 months short of a year. Kavanaugh's appointment vote is delayed one week. What's all the fuss?

My take on the Kavanaugh Hearing

Today I saw a coward … simple as that.

Brett Kavanaugh was given countless opportunities to man up … to call on the President of the United States of America to provide an FBI investigation into Christine Blasey Ford's accusations against him … to help clear his good name

Kavanaugh said no.

Trade wars are easy to win

Trump says "trade wars are easy to win" Sure they are.

How many trade wars has Trump won? None? Are there experts in the field of international trade that agree with Trump? Is there evidence that a Nation who imports nearly everything we buy ought to start trade wars?

Harley Davidson got a big tax break, and just announced they're going to expand manufacturing overseas to beat the Trump tariffs. Others will follow. Ironic since Trump likes to mouth off about regulations.

But lets get right to it …. Trump needs tariffs to help finance his money grab. Result is our cost of living goes up.

Trump gave away trillions in tax relief to the wealthiest Americans including himself, and got nothing in the DEAL about jobs in the USA … jobs that tariffs could help protect.

Fair trade not Free trade

Protect the US standard of living through tariffs. If a corporation moves its manufactories to a low-wage nation, tax it's imports to a degree that it would be less expensive to manufacture their product in the USA.

Donald Trump's Saturday morning

USA Today

As the solemn motorcade carrying the body of Sen. John McCain made its way past the Washington monument Saturday morning, within eyesight of the White House, President Donald Trump was busily churning out a series of tweets attacking the FBI, Department ofJustice, the news media and Canada.

Trump made no reference to the senator's passing, even as the luminaries of Washington —including three former presidents — began gathering at the National Cathedral for a memorial service

Trump, who McCain pointedly declined to invite to the service, began the morning tweetstorm at 7:19 a.m., with a slap at the state of the news media just as Fox, CNN and MSNBC were beginning to roll out their wall-to-wall coverage of the day's events.

Two minutes later, the president took a swipe at Canada, which declined to sign a trade agreement on Friday, saying, "I love Canada, but they've taken advantage of our Country for man years."

After an hour's pause, at 8:26, one minute after MSNBC began its live coverage of the McCain family gathering at the steps of the Senate, Trump cranked out his third tweet of the morning. It was so long, it turned into a five-parter, long enough for McCain'smotorcade to make a brief stop at the Vietnam Memorial and all the way to the Cathedral.

The topic, on McCain's final day in Washington, D.C., involved the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court. He quoted from a Friday night appearance on Fox's Hannity program by Tom Fitton, president of Judicial Watch, a conservative activist group. Fitton was discussing a Judicial Watch response to a court-filing by the Justice Department regarding wiretap warrants on Carter Page, a former foreign policy adviser to the Trump campaign.

At 8:32 am., as the casket carrying McCain's body was being carried from the Senate Rotunda to a hearse for the trip down Constitution Avenue, Trump unleashed part two of the FISA tweet, this time picking Fitton's description of the leadership of the DOJ andFBI, who are both Trump appointees, as being "completely out to lunch."

During a 47-minute pause, the McCain motorcade rolled past the Justice Department building, then passed between the White House, on the right, and the Washington Monument, on the left, ringed with flags at half-staff in McCain's honor.

Silence from the Trump twitter-feed as the cable channels showed Cindy McCain, widow of the late senator, standing before a wreath in McCain's memory at the Vietnam Memorial wall. She was escorted by Trump's chief of staff, John Kelly, and the secretary ofdefense, James Mattis.

At 9:19 a.m., as Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump arrived at the National Cathedral, where they were greeted by longtime McCain pal Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., Trump fired off the the third segment of the FISA tweets, with quotes on the "Fake Dossier" purportedlycontaining incrimination information on the president.

As the motorcade resumed the trip to the National Cathedral, Trump jumped back into his morning tweeting with the fourth part on the "Fake Dossier," this time including a swipe at Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama, who, coincidentally was at that moment in thecathedral preparing to deliver a eulogy for McCain at the senator's request.

At 9:27 a.m, Trump tweeted a quote from conservative commentator Dan Bongino who raises the specter of an Obama administration "police state" going after Trump.

As cameras panned the cathedral gathering, including such members of the Washington elite as former presidents Obama, Clinton, and George W. Bush, along with Michelle Obama, Laura Bush, Hillary Clinton, Henry Kissinger, Sen. Orrin Hatch, Trump nemesis Ohiogov. John Kasich, Senate Majority leader Mitch McConnell, House minority leader Nancy Pelosi, and even CNN anchor Jake Tapper, Trump took a break.

Trump, who tweeted from the White House, did not stay long enough to watch the McCain services from the president's mansion.

Instead, according to the media pool report, Trump left at 10:35 a.m., during the final moments of Meghan McCain's emotional eulogy to her father.

It appeared he was making his normal Saturday trek to his golf course in Virginia, despite heavy rains in the area Friday night. He was wearig a white shirt-sleeve shirt and a white hat emblazoned with his trademark slogan "Make America Great Again."

Enclosed is a snapshot of the guy who claims John McCain isn't a war hero...

By Steve Eder and Dave Philipps
•Aug. 1, 2016

Back in 1968, at the age of 22, Donald J. Trump seemed the picture of health.

He stood 6 feet 2 inches with an athletic build; had played football, tennis and squash; and was taking up golf. His medical history was unblemished, aside from a routine appendectomy when he was 10.

But after he graduated from college in the spring of 1968, making him eligible to be drafted and sent to Vietnam, he received a diagnosis that would change his path: bone spurs in his heels.

The diagnosis resulted in a coveted 1-Y medical deferment that fall, exempting him from military service as the United States was undertaking huge troop deployments to Southeast Asia, inducting about 300,000 men into the military that year.

The deferment was one of five Mr. Trump received during Vietnam. The others were for education.

His experience during the era is drawing new scrutiny after the Muslim American parents of a soldier who was killed in Iraq publicly questioned whether Mr. Trump had ever sacrificed for his country. In an emotional speech at the Democratic National Convention last week, the soldier’s father, Khizr Khan, directly addressed Mr. Trump, the Republican presidential nominee, saying, “You have sacrificed nothing and no one.”

Mr. Trump’s public statements about his draft experience sometimes conflict with his Selective Service records, and he is often hazy in recalling details.

In an interview with The New York Times last month, Mr. Trump said the bone spurs had been “temporary” — a “minor” malady that had not had a meaningful impact on him. He said he had visited a doctor who provided him a letter for draft officials, who granted him the medical exemption. He could not remember the doctor’s name.

“I had a doctor that gave me a letter — a very strong letter on the heels,” Mr. Trump said in the interview.

Asked to provide The Times with a copy of the letter, which he had obtained after his fourth student deferment, Mr. Trump said he would have to look for it. A spokeswoman later did not respond to repeated requests for copies of it.

The Selective Service records that remain in the National Archives — many have been discarded — do not specify what medical condition exempted Mr. Trump from military service.

Mr. Trump has described the condition as heel spurs, which are protrusions caused by calcium built up on the heel bone, treated through stretching, orthotics or sometimes surgery.

Mr. Trump said that he could not recall exactly when he was no longer bothered by the spurs, but that he had not had an operation for the problem.

“Over a period of time, it healed up,” he said.

In the 2015 biography “The Truth About Trump,” the author, Michael D’Antonio, described interviewing Mr. Trump, who at one point slipped off a loafer to display a tiny bulge on his heel. And during a news conference last year, Mr. Trump could not recall which heel had been involved, prompting his campaign to release a statement saying it was both.

Mr. Trump, who has hailed his health as “perfection,” said the heel spurs were “not a big problem, but it was enough of a problem.”

“They were spurs,” he said. “You know, it was difficult from the long-term walking standpoint.”

In December, his longtime personal physician, Dr. Harold N. Bornstein, announced that Mr. Trump had “no significant medical problems” over four decades and that, if elected, he “will be the healthiest individual ever elected to the presidency.” Dr. Bornstein made no mention of the bone spurs but did note the appendectomy from Mr. Trump’s childhood.

A year and a half into it, Donald Trump has no progress, nothing to say, zilch, nada, not a peep, not a whimper whatsoever about his campaign promise to extort the 10-20 billion dollars from Mexico for a border wall.

While Trump was in the process of making campaign promises Mitt Romney called him a fraud. Maybe because Trump said ...

-Mexico will pay for a border wall.

-Manufactories will return to the USA from low wage Nations.

-The Muslim Religion will be banned from entering the USA.

Fake or real news?
