This is what the GOP have been working for

quote [ Earlier today, the House of Representatives voted 219 to 206 in favor of the Republican House budget resolution that proposed $5.8 trillion in cuts over the next decade to Medicare, Medicaid, education, infrastructure and other critical services while paving the way for trillions of dollars in tax cuts that would mostly benefit the wealthy and corporations. The vote was almost entirely along party lines, with 18 Republicans joining all Democrats against the resolution. ]

This is a fight the Dems are likley to lose the only question is how badly

Keith Ellison: Only the People Can Shut Down the Republican Tax Cut Sham

I have also seen many post about how the stock market is likley to respond if they don't get their tax cuts. This one say that they are overheated already.

The Dow could be so hot that it melts

I don't see how even mass demonstrations stop all of this. Once again we are relying on the good graces of Republican senate members.

and some of the crazy shit that comes out of Trumps mouth is just scary.



President Trump offered some confusing comments in front of reporters Thursday night, when at an event for military officials and their spouses he suggested the moment represented "the calm before the storm."

Mr. Trump and First Lady Melania Trump, flanked by military spouses for a photo op at the White House, said, "You guys know what this represents? Maybe it's the calm before the storm," the president said.

Pressed on what he meant, Mr. Trump said "we have the world's great military people" in the room.

Asked yet again for an answer, Mr. Trump said "you'll find out."

The president then bid everyone a good night, without clarifying his comments.

I do expect some kind of conflict to ramp up soon but just listening to the casual and cavalier way he said it...wow.

The Pee Pee Dossier just won't go away...part 4

I have been posting these but I think this on goes here.

Some real news
Rachel Maddow reports exclusively that an associate of Trump dossier author Christopher Steele is open to meeting with the Senate Intelligence Committee, contrary to the committee's claims.

It seems he has already testified to Muller ...months ago.

Company Intelegance Report 2015/080

The Pee Pee stuff says something personal about Trump but is not the damaging allegations made it has this has a back and forth relationship for over a year between Trump people and Russian agents and banks.

In an earlier post I said I thought Putin would put out some detail to threaten Trump to keep him in line. Well since that time Trump has passed on the authority for Russian Sanctions to the Sec Of The Treasury...watch this space...And has done nothing to send arms to the Ukraine recommended by both sec of state and deference along with the chief of staff....since then crickets... from Trump

The Russians on the other hand have been busy . They have blownup the 3rd ammo dump inside Ukraine Massive Explosions Seen At Ammunition Depot In Ukraine

No sign that even after his national security staff has suggested...no arms shipment to Ukraine.
