    Only event I might think about celebrating is his funeral.

    And hopefully it will be soon. Very soon.

    Glenn Greenwald, who published Edward Snowden releases, wrote about the 35 page dossier in his recent article " the Deep State goes to War with president-Elect Using Unverified Claims as Democrats Cheer". https://theintercept.com/2017/01/11/...as-dems-cheer/ .

    Greenwald used some choice words to describe Democrats and their new found neocon and other Deep State allies.

    "Democrats, still reeling from their unexpected and traumatic election loss, as well as a systematic collapse of their party, seemingly divorced further and further from reason with each passing day, are willing — eager — to embrace any claim, cheer any tactic, align with any villain, regardless of how unsupported, tawdry, and damaging those behaviors might be." "Legitimate and effective tactics for opposing Trump are being utterly drowned by these irrational, desperate, ad hoc crusades that have no cogent strategy and make his opponents appear increasingly devoid of reason and gravity. Right now, Trump’s opponents are behaving as media critic Adam Johnson described: as ideological jellyfish, floating around aimlessly and lost, desperately latching on to whatever barge randomly passes by."

    But I wonder if the Deep State's CIA, media, and other tools have or are fueling hatred with the intent of inciting lone wolves with murderous intent.

    Just browse Facebook and the abundance of media from "winning democrats" and "occupy democrates" posting articles about things Trump who is not even in office yet has caused the collapse of the world,all to incite emotions and divisions.

    Then there is the Reich guy wanting to start a massive occupation coalition.

    Ratings and more ratings and hundreds of millions being spent,Soros fellows make $110 k a year to bounce about the country causing disruptions and violence to peaceful protests.

    What is a better story ? There was a protest today.

    Or ? There was a protest today and rioting broke out and 50 businesses were burned to the ground.

    I don't care if he strokes out in a spray tan booth, as long as he stops drawing oxygen.

    It's so satisfying and enjoyable that after you stuck us with obama for 8 years you're now getting yours. Particularly of course, because you've lost the Presidency, the Congress, the Senate, Governors, the Supreme Court and countless other minor positions.

    (but you have gained a Community Organgrinder)

    Don't harbor your hate for too long Meddle because it's a long long road ahead and it will only make you ill, and we do want you to live to hate the second 4 years even more.

    PS. Just imagine a Supreme Court of Judges with a "majority" of (young judges) chosen by President Trump that will reflect on your life for the next 20/40 years. (delicious!).

    And you can't afford to get ill after Republicans take away your healthcare.

    Additionally, hate is how Republicans govern. Let them have it.

    We'll see what happens. Obviously, people now dependent on Obamacare have reason to be concerned. However, Trump is claiming that his new plan will provide "insurance for everyone" and will have lower deductibles. Rand Paul's plan seems to be in the forefront of Republican plans. it "would legalize the purchase of health insurance across state lines, challenging both the insurance cartels and overzealous state regulators" among other things. The fact is that the (un)ACA was failing and was only being kept alive by the infusion of more cash and executive ordered violations of that act. In Minnesota, (un)ACA costs were expected to climb an average of 36 to 67% in 2017. Obama promised to lower the health care premiums by $2,500, per family, per year. Fail

    What I don't understand is why Democrats aren't jumping at the opportunity to try to establish state based single player plans like Vermont tried to establish before being shot down by (un)ACA bureaucrats who wanted to retain the lawyers, bureaucrats, and insurance profits found in the (un)ACA and the rest of US healthcare. This vacuum, between plans. offers an opportunity to do so. It seems like Democrats would rather whine than take the opportunity to do what they claim to want and establish single payer plans.

    The Expanded and Improved Medicare for All Act, H.R. 676, introduced last night by Rep. John Conyers Jr., D-Mich., ranking member of the Judiciary Committee, with 51 other House members, would replace today’s welter of private health insurance companies with a single, streamlined public agency that would pay all medical claims, much like traditional Medicare works for seniors today.

    To make it societally affordable, the insurance companies, bureaucrats, and lawyers have to be substantially taken out of health care. Why waste time showboating with Trump and a Republican congress writing bills that will go nowhere or maintain the status quo? Better to have Vermont and perhaps some other states immediately institute their own single payer plans. If Vermont's plan works out as good as say Ontario's, other blue states will soon be in line passing similar plans. Once Trump gets a couple of new justices on the Supreme Court, who knows, the 10th. Amendment might actually be enforced making federal medical plans unconstitutional without amending the Constitution long after Trump. Meanwhile, some state single payer plans could be prospering. Better to take advantage of the confusion and disorganization now to institute state plans before Republicans mandate some insurance company friendly replacement for Obamacare. Who knows, Republicans might temporarily be glad to allow and sluff off medical care to individual states. Another thing Republicans could do would be to temporarily block grant whatever the federal government is giving to states now to allow states to continue their own self-managed Obamacare programs, set us single payer programs, or whatever else they choose.

    Default The First 100 Days (In Trump's Own Words)

    As we near the end of the first 100 days, the rabid leftist media has behaved exactly as expected. While we all know that Trump has had a tremendous presidency thus far, the leftist media has reported on Trump in a totally deranged fashion. Fake News!

    Trump has already addressed many of the concerns of his constituents. He has restored sanity to our immigration and trade policies, stripped away the regulatory and administrative state, and has taken a tough foreign policy stance. Indeed, America is great again! To be honest, Trump is one of the most American presidents ever and is the president America truly deserves. Trump plans to cap off the first 100 days of his enormous presidency with a rally on Saturday in Harrisburg, PA. Pennsylvania, as you know, is one of the "blue wall" states that helped the Donald trump that b****.

    In the meantime, let's allow Trump to tell us in his own words about the success of the first 100 days.

    Regardless of your position, I'm confused as to why anyone would want to donate to a church that was going to use your tithe for political reasons. Why do you need a religious middle-man ? Can't you just make the donation yourself directly ?
    The biggest irony in this is the Catholic church itself. Some Catholics voted for Trump to address the immigration issue. The same people go to church on Sunday and tithe to the biggest coyote in the business.
