Michael Flynn lied to get security clearance, House Oversight Democrats say

  • Documents obtained by the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform show that Michael Flynn lied to federal investigators.
  • According to a letter from ranking Democratic member Elijah Cummings (D-Md.) to the committee’s chairman, Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah), Flynn told Defense Department investigators in 2016 “U.S. companies” had paid for him to attend a gala with Russian President Vladimir Putin the prior year. 
  • The payments were actually made by RT, a state-funded Russian television network known for news heavily-tilted toward Moscow’s line.
  • Flynn also appeared to have lied about whether the nature of his contact with Russian officials was “insubstantial.” Read more (5/22/17)

Reminder that this is what the minimum wage would need to be in order for a single person to simply rent a living space in each state.

A secondary reminder to ask yourself if you really believe American market capitalism will provide these more livable and just wages voluntarily without government intervention.

Trump is threatening them if they vote against the bill, if you’re their constituent (or know someone who lives in their states), call them and make sure these reps know they answer to the American people and not to Trump.

Vote will take place on Thursday, March 23 - tell them to vote no on AHCA aka Trumpcare.

No real solutions are coming from the anti-Trump protests. Instead, it’s crying and whining about the popular vote and keywords (Ex: racist, sexist, etc…)

If you wanted to actually reduce Executive Power, I’d be all for it. I’d join you and work with you. But y'all ain’t interested in shrinking the Executive. You’re just upset someone you don’t like has all that power now.

Muhammad Ali’s family asks Congress to put a stop to Trump’s “insulting” Muslim ban

  • The family of late boxing champion Muhammad Ali headed to Capitol Hill on Thursday to meet with House Democrats and ask them to fight President Donald Trump’s Muslim travel ban.
  • In late February, U.S. immigration officers detained Muhammad Ali, Jr. and his mother, Khalilah Camacho-Ali, for several hours upon their arrival at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport from Jamaica.
  • As U.S. citizens, they both provided proper travel documentation, ThinkProgress reported. But according to attorney Chris Mancini, Ali Jr. was repeatedly interrogated on his faith as a devout Muslim.
  • Ali Jr. and Camacho-Ali appeared before House Democrats at a forum on Capitol Hill titled “Ali vs. Trump: The Fight for American Values” to discuss their experience and views on the executive order. 
  • The duo also appeared to show their support for the End Racial and Religious Profiling Act of 2017, which would prohibit any law enforcement agency from profiling Americans based on race or religion. Read more (3/10/17 4:02 PM)

The Treasonous Dickhole Who Lied About President Obama Wiretapping Him Just Saw His Healthcare Bill Sink Faster Than His Approval Ratings

Please note that Trumpcare was such a spectacular failure, it wasn’t voted down, but never came to a vote in the first place because the GOP knew it had no chance of passing.

DJT groused about Democrats failing to work with him, ignoring that most reliable sources estimate 36 Republicans jumped ship.

He also whined about obstructionism, which is like the Mafia complaining about violence. 

Throughout the campaign, DJT insisted he’d “repeal and replace!” ACA aka Obamacare on “Day 1″. 

Today is Day #64.

Let’s gloat then get back to work. 

Each part of his agenda must be blocked, investigated, or dismantled.

But damn, today is a good day.
