What’s Senator Sanders Doing:

* Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) plans to introduce his “Medicare for allsingle-payer healthcare bill after Congress returns in September.

Speaking to constituents in Vermont Monday, Sanders admitted that the bill is unlikely to pass the Republican-controlled Congress or be signed by President Trump.

“If we pass this thing, it’s not going to be tomorrow, it would be the most significant step forward legislatively since I suspect the creation of Social Security in the 1930s. It’s a big deal,” he said, according to The Associated Press. Read More

Correct It!

380fdc53c5f2615aae2854f9fa31114f

Here’s something many of you may not know is going on that is very irresponsible. Journalists and reporters use Twitter alot to get information out to the public as quick as possible. Yesterday, Donald Trump tweeted out how he went to visit Alexandria gunshot victim, Congressman Scalise, in the hospital. Trump said Scalise was in rough condition and to pray for him. Well, reporter, Jim Acosta, sent out a tweet saying the President never visited Scalise at the hospita!. This was read by thousands and even Jake Tapper took Acosta’s word and reported the findings. Well, it turns out Jim Acosta was wrong, and therefore Jake Tapoer. But instead of tweeting out a retraction saying he was wrong, Mr. Acosta just deleted the tweet and called it a day. No retraction, yet tens of thousands of people thought Trump just lied. Luckily real reporters who still believe in fairness captured an image of the tweet in error and tried to spread the correct version of events around while also publicly shaming Acosta. The fair reporters weren’t conservatives, but progressives. They just believe in the integrity of their profession Read More

Rex Tillerson’s Visit To Russia

Trump-Russian theorists are going to have to twist themselves into more contortions as Secretary Of State visits Putin to confront him with evidence that Russia conspired with Assad on the chemical attack on Syrians the other day/ His evidence is backed by US and UK authorities/ It definitely doesn’t fit within the Putin’s puppet theme unless you think they had a post-election lover’s quarrel. I’m not pro-Trump and I still think the airstrike was wrong, but I’m glad to see this insipid Russian bromance blowing up in what can only be called a political witch hunt. I don’t like when either side does it and I especially hate seeing the public manipulated by the media so easily. You might catch one or two bad actors in the web of connect the dots, but you’re not going to get the big enchilada, which is what really is wanted because of impeachment. But this investigation could last for longer than Trump’s whole term. So we’re kind of stuck with him from 2020. Keep your eye on the GOP agenda. Donald Trump is the distraction. Read More

Thought Salad: February 16, 2017

* This is an actual headline and story from the Associated Press: #Unbelievable: “Lindsay Lohan says Americans need to come together in support of President Donald Trump.”

* Then why all the salacious and hysterical headlines? The media trying to gain readers and profits. The bottom line.: “Tom Winter: NBC’s Pete Williams reports (as we all along) that investigators have found no collusion between Trump campaign and contacts in Russia.”

Kid Rock thinking of running for the Senate. In another day and time that would have been shocking! Read More

The countries and people effected were from  Iran, Iraq, Syria, Libya, Somalia, and Sudan.  It didn’t take long for protesters to show up at major airports around the country. New York‘s airport attracted thousands by nightfall. Read More

Trump Banned Refugees From Mainly Countries We’ve Bombed

2017-01-28_1-41-26

Refugees from 7 Muslim countries will be barred & a religious test will be given to those seeking asylum “with Christians granted priority.”

That the President of the United States would order on Holocaust Memorial Day the banning of a people due to their religion is reprehensible
