Instead of draining the swamp, Team Trump is filling it
Post Date: 2017-05-05 09:02:19 by HomerBohn

Drain the swamp? Don't be ridiculous. The swamp in Washington (Swamp City) will drain President Donald Trump before he drains it. On that you can rely. The number of lobbyists and special interests in Swamp City under Trump has gotten larger, not smaller. Despite Trump's campaign promise to "drain the swamp," which was regularly chanted at campaign rallies by supporters, there are more lobbyists flocking to Washington than there are leaving. Nobody ever leaves Washington anyway. The money's too good. While it may be ego-rewarding for a supporter to be appointed to an important federal position, you can get richer instead by becoming a connected lobbyist. And ...

Obama's $400,000 speech could prompt Congress to go after his pension
Post Date: 2017-05-04 07:29:32 by HomerBohn

WASHINGTON — Last year, then-president Barack Obama vetoed a bill that would have curbed the pensions of former presidents if they took outside income of $400,000 or more. So now that former president Barack Obama has decided to accept $400,000 for an upcoming Wall Street speech, the sponsors of that bill say they'll reintroduce that bill in hopes that President Trump will sign it. "The Obama hypocrisy on this issue is revealing," said Rep. Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah, chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee and sponsor of the 2016 bill. "His veto was very self-serving." Chaffetz and Sen. Joni Ernst, R-Iowa, the sponsor of the companion ...

Medicare Part G-A True Benefit

If you are an older senior citizen and can no longer take care of yourself and need Long-Term Care, but the government says there is no Nursing Home care available for you, what do you do? You may opt for Medicare Part G. The plan gives anyone 75 or older a gun (Part G) and one bullet. You may then shoot one worthless politician. This means you will be sent to prison for the rest of your life where you will receive three meals a day, a roof over your head, central heating and air conditioning, cable TV, a library, and all the health care you need. Need new teeth? No problem. Need glasses? That’s great. Need a hearing aid, new hip, knees, kidney, lungs, sex change, or heart? They are ...

Why There Will NEVER Be A Political Solution To America’s Problems (Trump's Not Draining The Swamp. Is He In It?)
Post Date: 2017-05-03 08:08:39 by HomerBohn

Why do things never seem to change no matter who we send to Washington? It seems like for decades many of us have been trying to change the direction of this country by engaging in the political process. But no matter how hard we try, the downward spiral of our nation just continues to accelerate. Just look at this latest spending deal. Even though the American people gave the Republicans control of the White House, the Senate and the House of Representatives, this deal very closely resembles “an Obama administration-era budget”. It increases spending even though we have already been adding more than a trillion dollars a year to the national debt, it specifically forbids the ...

Donald Trump: ‘We’re Very Happy with’ Republican Budget Agreement

President Donald Trump indicated that he would sign the Republican Budget agreement with Democrats, despite growing dissent from his base that Congressional Republicans caved on important priorities. “We’re very happy with it,” Trump said in an interview with Bloomberg News, pointing to the $1.5 billion for border security. “And I think it’s important that we keep moving along. I think both sides are happy.” After an agreement was reached, Democrats crowed that they were able to save funding for Planned Parenthood and block funding for the wall, despite Trump’s campaign promises. “In a defeat for President Trump,” House Minority Nancy Pelosi ...

Democrats confident they can block Trump’s agenda after spending-bill win
Post Date: 2017-05-02 07:25:06 by HomerBohn
5 Comments
Democrats think they have set the stage to block President Trump’s legislative priorities for years to come by winning major concessions in a spending bill to keep the government open. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and Senate Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer (D-N.Y.) secured nearly $5 billion in new domestic spending by exploiting disagreements between Trump and GOP lawmakers over spending priorities. Democrats’ lopsided victory on the five-month deal, which is likely to be approved this week, means it will be very difficult — if not impossible — for the GOP to exert its will in future budget negotiations, including when it comes to Trump’s 20 ...

Paul Ryan Expands H-2B Blue-Collar Outsourcing Program for 2017
Post Date: 2017-05-01 21:20:46 by cranky
1 Comments
House Speaker Paul Ryan’s new 2017 budget allows the Department of Homeland Security to import at least 20,000 extra foreign blue-collar workers for seasonal jobs in the United States, instead of requiring companies to recruit, train, and pay marginalized Americans. The bipartisan congressional language creates a headache for Trump and his deputies because it flips the politically difficult problem from Congress to the Department of Homeland Security of deciding whether to provide extra wage-cutting H-2B contract workers to companies or else to improve job opportunities for Trump’s blue-collar voters. The new rule is opposed by pro-American groups, including the Federation for ...

No shutdown: $1.1 trillion agreement shows Democrats' clout

Erasing the threat of a disruptive government shutdown, the White House and top lawmakers endorsed a $1.1 trillion spending bill Monday to carry the nation through September, an agreement underscoring that Democrats retain considerable clout in Donald Trump's turbulent presidency. Negotiators released the 1,665-page bill after Republicans dropped numerous demands on the environment, Obama-era financial regulations and abortion in marathon sessions over the weekend. The bill is slated for a House vote on Wednesday, with a Senate vote ahead of a Friday midnight deadline. "We thought we had the upper hand because a government shutdown would be on their shoulders, and we made that ...

Menendez donor, Fla. eye doctor guilty on all counts of Medicare fraud

Salomon Melgen speaks at his his office in Port St. Lucie, Fla., in 2013.A prominent Florida eye doctor has been convicted on all counts in his Medicare fraud trial, raising the possibility he could be pressured to testify in the bribery trial of New Jersey Democratic Sen. Bob Menendez. Jurors announced their verdict Friday for Dr. Salomon Melgen. He effectively faces a life sentence if no deal is struck. Menendez denies any wrongdoing. Prosecutors contended that the 62-year-old Melgen stole up to $105 million from the federal insurance program between 2008 and 2013, by giving patients treatments and tests that couldn't help them. Melgen's attorneys argued that any billing issues ...

'Has there ever been an organization in human history that is dedicated, with such commitment, to the destruction of organised human life on Earth?' says distinguished academic Noam Chomsky has argued the Republican Party is the most “dangerous organisation in human history” and the world has never seen an organisation more profoundly committed to destroying planet earth. The eminent intellectual, who is famed for his radical views, said the Trump administration had shown total and utter disregard for the future of the planet and appeared dedicated to dismantling previous legacies to tackle climate change.

You know who would benefit a lot from Trump's tax plan? Donald Trump.
Post Date: 2017-04-27 10:28:32 by cranky

The tax plan President Trump unveiled on Wednesday is really only a single page of bullet points, but it's already pretty clear that a big beneficiary of the proposals would be super-wealthy chieftains of private real estate empires who have children. One big winner from the proposals would be "pass-through" businesses like the Trump Organization and its hundreds of subsidiaries, where owners file business income on their individual returns — depending on how the law is written, such business owners could pay a 15 percent tax rate instead of an individual rate of up to 35 percent. "Trump is the king of pass-throughs," said Steven Rosenthal at the nonpartisan Tax ...

Republicans exempt their own insurance from their latest health care proposal

Republican legislators want to keep popular Obamacare provisions for themselves and their staff. House Republicans appear to have included a provision that exempts Members of Congress and their staff from their latest health care plan. The new Republican amendment, introduced Tuesday night, would allow states to waive out of Obamacare’s ban on pre-existing conditions. This means that insurers could once again, under certain circumstances, charge sick people higher premiums than healthy people. Republican legislators liked this policy well enough to offer it in a new amendment. They do not, however, seem to like it enough to have it apply to themselves and their staff. A ...

Revealed: Obama sealed Iran nuclear deal by dropping charges against arms smuggler who helped kill HUNDREDS of U.S. troops in Iraq

In order to preserve its nuclear deal with the Islamic Republic of Iran, the Obama administration agreed not to prosecute an arms smuggler whose products killed hundreds of U.S. troops in Iraq. The lenient approach to the case of Amin Ravan was one of several uncovered in previously hidden court filings and exposed on Monday by Politico. Ravan, U.S. authorities believed, was involved with providing Iran with components of bombs that Shiite militias used over a long period of time. He was also charged with smuggling American military antennas to Hong Kong and Singapore so they could be sold to Iran. But the Obama White House dropped those charges, along with those of at least 13 other ...

Prosecutors were to represent both the government and the defendant equally, in the quest for the truth. In a recent Facebook post, a meme stated, “You better start caring about the trial going on Nevada right now. Your rights depend on the outcome.” For many of us, the process of watching the wheels of injustice turn in the courtroom has also turned our stomachs as we witness first hand our awful situation. Like draining the swamp, we have left our comfortable easy chairs, our EAR (entertainment, amusement and recreation) lifestyle, to watch as federal judges and prosecutors expose their corruption, their twisted logic and most of all, their departure from the original intent ...

Obama’s CIA Director John Brennan CONSPIRED with Foreign Spies AGAINST Donald Trump

In a just world, Obama and his quisling admin would be indicted for treason. The whole motley crew. John Brennan did not act autonomously. He was Obama’s Luca Brasi, named CIA director for his exemplary work in cleaning up after Obama. If you recall, during the presidential election, I ran a number of stories on the breach of Obama’s passport at the Department of State. Brennan was the CEO of TAC – and also a consultant to the 2008 Obama campaign – when one of its contract employees was accused of improperly accessing the passport files of Obama prompting an investigation by the State Department. The investigation was focusing on one employee — a contract worker ...

Near the end of March, we reported that longtime Democrat leader Alcee Hastings (D-FL) had become embroiled in a corruption scandal that saw him paying his girlfriend over $2.5 Million over the last 20 years. Hastings’ girlfriend was his highest paid employee, even though she was not among his closest or most important staff members. Now, news is breaking that another popular Democrat Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) has been discovered in a similarly troubling ethical conundrum.

In most of these cases, they were suspected only of possession or ingestion. Many of them were innocent... But these tactics aren’t about getting drugs off the street...
