  1. Oh boy,I’m watching Thom Hartmann on Free Speech TV, on my 40″ Toshiba instead of my monitor!

  2. Okay, this is some scary-as-hell shit: https://thinkprogress.org/sarah-sanders-security-clearances-comey-rice-clapper-brennan-ad682cfc96a6/

    Fuckabee Heifer’s statement is just so fucking wrong:

    “Making baseless accusations of improper contact with Russia — or being influenced by Russia — against the President is extremely inappropriate, and the fact that people with security clearances are making baseless these baseless charges provides inappropriate legitimacy to accusations with zero evidence.”

    Um, what does she think the Mueller investigation is about? Mueller better hurry, before trump decides that he can’t take it anymore and either orders a halt to it, or orders a nuclear strike on Iran.

    • Its obviously a distraction from the Mueller investigation, most of the people named don’t have clearances to lose!

    • A security clearance is an asset, as it qualifies one to hold a higher level job in either government or certain private companies. I have never held a clearance, but I have interviewed for jobs that required one several times. To revoke a clearance without cause is a form of government ‘taking’ from an individual something of value.
      Trump wants to punish his critics by any means necessary, but this method could run up against several amendments of the constitution.

      • Wayne had a very high security clearance, and I believe that if he hadn’t taken advantage of Reagan’s ‘early out’ program to come home to me, he probably could have made a very nice career in the Air Force.

      • Corporations are people, and speech is money, but criticism isn’t speech, it’s death by hanging…Heil Drumpf!

  3. Trump’s Hollywood Walk of Fame Star Destroyed

    President Donald Trump’s star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame was destroyed early this morning, ABC-owned station KABC-TV reported.

    According to witnesses, a man removed a pickax from a guitar case about 3 a.m. local time and smashed the red marble marker bearing the president’s name on Hollywood Boulevard, KABC reported. Trump had received his place on the Walk of Fame in 2007 for his work on “The Apprentice.” Pictures show the pickax had been left at the scene amid the debris.

  4. So, a CNN reporter was excluded from a Rose Garden press event today for asking questions.

  5. CNN is reporting that Cohen has claimed he was there when Don Jr. told Dotard about the meeting with the Russians. Get this man a plea deal and numerous bodyguards, stat!

  6. I think I’ve finally unlocked the secret of how trickle-down economics works, and why tax cuts to billionaires do pay for themselves!
    I was watching Larry Kudlow on Face the Nation just now, and he said the Trump Tax cuts have almost already paid for themselves this year!
    Based on my understanding of the current year deficit numbers, it became clear to me that as long as the amount of money pouring into the pockets of the billionaires, exceeds the amount of the deficit, then these economists consider that the tax cuts have indeed, paid for themselves!

  7. Hi everyone. FYI: For some reason I can no longer log in as Briseadh na Faire.

    • You’re not alone. Last week I had the same problem only it was password.
      The internet machine is strange.

  8. Sessions announces ‘religious liberty task force’

    Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced Monday that the Department of Justice is creating a “religious liberty task force.”

    Sessions said the task force, co-chaired by Associate Attorney General Jesse Panuccio and the assistant attorney general for the Justice Department’s Office of Legal Policy, Beth Williams, will help the department fully implement the religious liberty guidance it issued last year.

    The guidance was a byproduct of President Trump’s executive order directing agencies to respect and protect religious liberty and political speech.

    Sessions said on Monday that the task force will “ensure all Justice Department components are upholding that guidance in the cases they bring and defend, the arguments they make in court, the policies and regulations they adopt, and how we conduct our operations.”

    • “…President Trump’s executive order directing agencies to respect and protect religious liberty and political speech.”

      Religious liberty and RELIGIOUS political speech? (It has to be, because trump really hates secular political speech!) Then start taxing the churches NOW.

  9. David Leonhardt (NYT) ‘Trump wants a monopoly on information, and he attacks anyone who threatens that monopoly.’

  10. Pick One by NanceGreggs

    Are you a Christian or a Republican? You can’t be both. A follower of the Nazareen believes in feeding the hungry, sheltering the homeless, and caring for the sick. Republicans are against doing any of the above, and implement policies that gut funding for programs that accomplish the very things Jesus himself admonished his followers to do. Pick one.

  11. Trump Is Killing His Supporters’ Businesses With Immigration Crackdown

    One such business owner, George Hohman, is very pessimistic about what the future holds for him and his Ohio-based landscaping business.

    He said that many of his regular customers have already switched to his competitors, so he had to terminate a contract with a local marketing company and close a satellite office

    Makes me wonder how this guy’s ‘competitors’ are getting it done while he can’t. Don’t they have the same labor problem? The labor market will find a new level when the expectations of these lowlife employers match reality.
