No collusion-collusion delusion along with all of the other Trumped up Trumpisms will hopefully be cleared up with redacted or unredacted “Mueller Report”. All of the hype associated with this investigation has been discussed and speculated with few facts. As probably suspected by many A.G. Barr has downplayed the report with slightly misworded explanations as to the contents of this report. The problem is that most of us will never see this report in its entirety and probably would not completely understand it. There will be speculation over it until fully explained. TOTUS will now use this as “exoneration” ( not used anywhere in the 400 plus pages) which does not dismiss the apparent contacts and urgings from his administration. With the tacit and implicit aid of “Botch” McConnell, the GOP is now on a downward slide and is owned by TOTUS. The Congress as a body is elected to represent their constituents, not the party or the President (whoever that may be). The seat fillers we have in place now have squandered their time and our money preventing any perhaps helpful legislation for the sake of the party and their big dollar backers. It is clear that aside from the “con man at 1600” our “representatives have failed us. Voting is the tool we have and the tool we need to use for better government along with being informed. it would be well to remember that among voters there should be no divide beyond informed opinions as the Major parties are out for themselves-not us!

This is the result of “gamblers” buying into an established business and not knowing the workings of the business. That lack of knowledge allows for the fatal mistakes made in the business model and opening the door for failure. This debacle leads to the “gambler” going after whatever assets that are available on the backs of the workers and gutting the business for whatever assets that can be gleaned after the business is no longer viable. Those assets include real estate that is often more valuable than the business after being gutted.  We should hope that the courts find for the plaintiffs to create a precedent for the future “Gamblers” MA.

Sears Holdings Corp sued longtime former chairman Eddie Lampert, his hedge fund ESL Investments and others like Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, claiming they illegally siphoned billions of dollars of assets from the retailer before it went bankrupt.
The lawsuit, made public on Thursday, was filed by the restructuring team winding down Sears’ bankruptcy estate and suing on behalf of creditors, many of whom blame Lampert for the retailer’s downfall.
It followed the billionaire’s $5.2 billion purchase in February of most Sears assets, including the DieHard and Kenmore brands, after a bankruptcy auction.
The complaint seeks the repayment of “billions of dollars of value looted from Sears,” including while it was in what Lampert would later call a “death spiral” where it sold core assets to meet daily expenses with no real plan for becoming profitable.
“Had defendants not taken these improper and illegal actions, Sears would have had billions of dollars more to pay its third-party creditors today and would not have endured the amount of disruption, expense, and job losses resulting from its recent bankruptcy filing,” the complaint said.
Sears filed for Chapter 11 protection in October after a prolonged decline under Lampert marked by large losses, scant investment and lost market share to retailers such as Walmart Inc, Home Depot Inc and Amazon.com Inc.
Others sued include ESL President Kunal Kamlani; Bruce Berkowitz and his Fairholme Capital Management, which was a large Sears shareholder; and Seritage Growth Properties, which took over 266 of Sears’ best stores in a 2015 spinoff.
Mnuchin, a college roommate of Lampert’s at Yale University, had been a director at Sears and ESL, and previously worked with Lampert at Goldman Sachs.
In a statement on behalf of ESL, Lampert and Kalmani, ESL said it vigorously disputed the lawsuit, calling the allegations “misleading or just flat wrong,” and saying all transactions were done in good faith and for shareholders’ benefit.
Fairholme said it was reviewing the complaint. Seritage and the Treasury Department did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
‘DEATH SPIRAL’
Lampert created Sears Holdings through the 2005 merger of Sears, Roebuck & Co and Kmart Holdings Corp.
According to the complaint, Lampert and other insiders had by 2011 begun hatching a plan to “strip” Sears of assets, as the Hoffman Estates, Illinois-based retailer’s performance fell short and more ESL investors were demanding their money back.
The complaint said Lampert ordered the creation of bogus financial plans projecting a Sears turnaround, and used them to help transfer five major assets worth more than $2 billion, including Land’s End and Sears Hometown Outlet.
Sears’ bankruptcy estate in particular faulted the conduct of Lampert and others in the $2.58 billion Seritage spinoff.
It said that transaction undervalued the real estate by at least $649 million, stuck Sears with hundreds of millions of dollars of rent and fees from leasing most of the 266 stores back, and was structured to benefit favored shareholders like Lampert, in part through Seritage’s payment of dividends.
Seritage reported $24.1 million of funds from operations in 2018, a measure of cash flow, and last July obtained a $2 billion loan package from Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway Inc. Berkshire is not a defendant.
Thursday’s lawsuit was filed with the U.S. bankruptcy court in White Plains, New York.
It seeks a declaration that the alleged looting constituted “fraudulent transfers” that should be undone or, more likely, justified damages.
The reorganized Sears was expected to have about 425 Sears and Kmart stores, down from roughly 3,500 at the time of the 2005 merger.
The case is Sears Holdings Corp et al v Lampert et al, U.S. Bankruptcy Court, Southern District of New York, No. 19-ap-08250. The main bankruptcy case is In re Sears Holdings Corp in the same court, No. 18-bk-23538.

The calls for SHS to be fired are just talk as a consummate liar will not fire another consummate liar especially when that liar covers his butt and forwards his lies with impunity. We have known that any spokespeople for the current administration are not reliable except for the fact that they will lie for and with TOTUS.MA

Sarah Huckabee Sanders was on Hannity Thursday night after the Mueller report revealed that Sanders lied about the FBI’s reaction to the James Comey firing. During the interview, she admitted to Sean Hannity that she wasn’t fully truthful in her press conference after Comey was fired.
“Look, I acknowledged that I had a slip of the tongue when I used the word ‘countless,’ but it’s not untrue.”
Sanders formerly stated that “countless” FBI executives were thankful Trump fired Comey. On May 10, 2017, the day after Comey was fired, Sanders told reporters, “I think most of America had decided on their own that Director Comey was not the person that should be leading the FBI, as evidenced by the numerous comments that we’ve seen from Democrat members in the House and Senate, Republican members, members of the FBI, and people across the board.”
However, in a redacted report presented by Attorney General William Barr to Congress and the public Thursday morning, it was revealed that Sanders admitted that her statements regarding FBI reaction to Comey’s firing were not true.
“Sanders told this Office [of the special counsel] that her reference to hearing from ‘countless members of the FBI’ was a ‘slip of the tongue.’
It was also revealed that her statements that FBI agents had “lost confidence” in Comey were made in “the heat of the moment” and “not founded on anything.”
On Hannity, Sanders maintained that Comey should have been fired.
“James Comey was a disgraced leaker who tried to politicize and undermine the agency he was supposed to run,” she explained.
Twitter has exploded with reactions from journalists calling for Sanders to be fired.

Again “Botch” McConnell falls to the occasion, it is clear that “Botch” is not a leader but a follower of the GOP and by extension TOTUS. If this is serving the people then what is ignoring them called? This also begs the question Is TOTUS President of The United States or the co-leader of Saudi Arabia? MA.

By Nick Visser
President Donald Trump on Tuesday vetoed a resolution to end U.S. support of Saudi Arabia’s military campaign in Yemen, which has been blamed for tens of thousands of deaths in the region.
“This resolution is an unnecessary, dangerous attempt to weaken my constitutional authorities, endangering the lives of American citizens and brave service members, both today and in the future,” Trump said in a statement accompanying his veto.
The Senate passed the resolution by a slim majority in March, and the House did the same earlier this month. It was a rare use of the War Powers Resolution of 1973, which gives Congress the power to remove military forces from a conflict for which there’s been no formal declaration of war.
The measure was passed by a bipartisan group of senators, including seven Republican senators who broke ranks with their party leaders. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) had urged lawmakers to reject the resolution at the time, saying it was “inappropriate and counterproductive.”
The veto was Trump’s second of his administration. He issued his first last month, blocking Congress’ attempt to end a “national emergency” declaration meant to obtain funds to build a wall along the southern border.
The move on Tuesday drew a quick backlash of rebukes, including from Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), who has long been critical of the Yemeni conflict.
“I am disappointed, but not surprised, that Trump has rejected the bi-partisan resolution to end U.S. involvement in the horrific war in Yemen,” Sanders, who is running for the Democratic nomination for president in 2020, said in a statement. “The people of Yemen desperately need humanitarian help, not more bombs.”
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) lambasted the president, saying he had “cynically chosen to contravene a bipartisan, bicameral vote of the Congress.”

Sen. Chris Murphy (D-Conn.), who sits on the chamber’s Foreign Relations Committee, also condemned the move as a “huge mistake.”
“The civil war in Yemen is a humanitarian crisis, and we have no business still being a part of it,” he said in a statement. “I’ve been calling on the United States to get out of the civil war in Yemen for the last four years, and this veto won’t stop me.”
Trump’s apparent fondness for Saudi Arabia has drawn the ire of many lawmakers, particularly after last year’s killing of Jamal Khashoggi, a columnist for The Washington Post. American intelligence agencies determined that the order to murder Khashoggi at the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul came directly from Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman. But the president has refused to condemn the crown prince for his role, instead saying that he stood by the Saudis.

“It could very well be that the crown prince had knowledge of this tragic event — maybe he did and maybe he didn’t,” Trump said in November. “In any case, our relationship is with the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.”
America supplies billions in arms sales to Riyadh, and the U.S. military has helped train the Saudi air force while advising the country on its war effort, according to a December report in The New York Times. In Washington, lawmakers have grown increasingly concerned about the deaths of civilians during airstrikes in Yemen, a toll that has continued to rise.
The war in Yemen has caused the worst humanitarian crisis in the world. The United Nations estimated in February that 24 million people ― about 80% of Yemen’s population ― were in need of assistance and that hundreds of thousands were at risk of starvation due to a famine.
“We remain keenly aware that a sustainable peace … would be the most effective remedy for the humanitarian crisis in Yemen,” Mark Lowcock, the U.N. humanitarian chief, said this week. “Without peace, we will simply go on treating the symptoms of this crisis, instead of addressing the cause. Let me summarize: Violence has again increased. The relief operation is running out of money. Barring changes, the end is nigh.”
This article has been updated with responses from House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Sen. Chris Murphy.

The best reason for not giving TOTUS’S tax returns to Congress is the specter of a REAL audit plus fines and Jail?. This is the same reason TOTUS’s lawyers do not want him to testify- his inability to tell the truth. MA.
David Jackson, USA TODAY Published 2:02 p.m. ET April 15, 2019, | Updated 2:27 p.m. ET April 15, 2019

WASHINGTON – President Donald Trump’s personal lawyer sent the Treasury Department a second letter Monday echoing his initial request: Don’t give Trump’s tax returns to Congress.
“Congress has no constitutional authority to act like a junior-varsity IRS, rerunning individual examinations or flyspecking the agency’s calculations,” said the letter from Trump attorney William S. Consovoy.
The letter comes two days after Rep. Richard Neal, D-Mass., chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee, gave the Internal Revenue Service a new deadline of April 23 to produce Trump tax documents or perhaps face a subpoena.
Saying Congress had a right to review returns, Neal said that “it is not the proper function of the IRS, Treasury, or Justice to question or second guess the motivations of the Committee.”
Neal made the same request this month and had set a deadline of Wednesday of last week. The Treasury Department, however, said it needed an extension because it was still reviewing the legal issues involved.
Unlike previous presidents, and many White House hopefuls, Trump refused to make his tax returns public after he became a presidential candidate in 2015.
In his letter on Monday, Trump’s lawyer accused Democratic House members of engaging in a fishing expedition designed to embarrass Trump politically.
“I wrote you on April 5 to explain why Chairman Neal’s request for my clients’
confidential tax information is illegal,” Consovoy said.

The  “IAGO” (Stephen Miller) of the Whitehouse is upset and possibly a prime mover on the selection and removal of administration members. It is quite possible that the “TOTUS” train is nearing a derailment. MA. 

EILEEN SULLIVAN and MICHAEL D. SHEAR 24 mins ago

WASHINGTON — Stephen Miller was furious — again.

The architect of President Trump’s immigration agenda, Mr. Miller was presiding last month over a meeting in the White House Situation Room when he demanded to know why the administration officials gathered there were taking so long to carry out his plans.
A regulation to deny welfare benefits to immigrants — a change Mr. Miller repeatedly predicted would be “transformative” — was still plodding through the approval process after more than two years, he complained. So were the new rules that would overturn court-ordered protections for migrant children. They were still not finished, he added, berating Ronald D. Vitiello, the acting head of Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
“You ought to be working on this regulation all day every day,” he shouted, as recounted by two participants at the meeting. “It should be the first thought you have when you wake up. And it should be the last thought you have before you go to bed. And sometimes you shouldn’t go to bed.”
A few weeks after that meeting, the consequences of Mr. Miller’s frustration and the president he was channeling have played out in striking fashion.
Mr. Trump has withdrawn Mr. Vitiello’s nomination to permanently lead ICE and pushed out Kirstjen Nielsen, his homeland security secretary. The department’s acting deputy secretary, Claire Grady, and the Secret Service director, Randolph D. Alles, are departing as well. And the White House has made it clear that others, including L. Francis Cissna, the head of United States Citizenship and Immigration Services, and John Mitnick, the department’s general counsel, are likely to go soon.
Mr. Trump insisted in a tweet on Saturday that he was “not frustrated” by the situation at the border, where for months he has said there is a crisis that threatens the nation’s security. But unable to deliver on his central promise of the 2016 campaign, he has targeted his administration’s highest-ranking immigration officials.
And behind that purge is Mr. Miller, the 33-year-old White House senior adviser. While immigration is the issue that has dominated Mr. Trump’s time in office, the president has little interest or understanding about how to turn his gut instincts into reality. So it is Mr. Miller, a fierce ideologue who was a congressional spokesman before joining the Trump campaign, who has shaped policy, infuriated civil liberties groups and provoked a bitter struggle within the administration.
White House officials insisted to reporters last week that they had no choice but to move against administration officials unwilling or unable to make their agencies produce results. One senior administration official at the White House, who requested anonymity to discuss what he called a sensitive topic, said many of the administration’s core priorities have been “either moving too slowly or moving in the wrong direction.”
But current and former officials from those agencies, who also requested anonymity to discuss contentious relations with the White House, describe a different reality.
The purge, they said, was the culmination of months of clashes with Mr. Miller and others around the president who have repeatedly demanded implementation of policies that were legally questionable, impractical, unethical or unreasonable. And when officials explained why, it further infuriated a White House set on making quick, sweeping changes to decades-old laws.
In a twist, many of the officials who have clashed with the White House were the president’s own political appointees, who share his broad goal of limiting immigration into the United States. To that end, they have already succeeded in lowering the number of refugees allowed into the United States, imposing a travel ban on entry from mostly Muslim nations, speeding up denaturalization proceedings, slowing asylum processing at ports of entry and developing proposals to limit work permits for spouses of high-tech workers.
“I don’t think the president’s really cleaning house,” said Thomas D. Homan, a former acting ICE director and strong supporter of the president’s immigration agenda. “I think he’s setting the reset button.”
A White House spokesman declined a request for comment. But even several of the most right-wing, anti-immigration groups have had a mixed reaction to the treatment of the immigration officials Mr. Trump and Mr. Miller have targeted.
The Center for Immigration Studies tweeted that “Nielsen got tough at the end of her tenure, but it was largely too little, too late.” The Federation for American Immigration Reform wrote: “Under Francis Cissna’s leadership, USCIS has issued a steady stream of policy changes and regulations that are firmly in line with President Trump’s immigration agenda. Removing him would be a huge mistake.”
But it has not been enough for Mr. Miller and his allies in the White House feeling the constant pressure from Mr. Trump.
Perhaps the greatest point of contention within the administration has been the asylum laws that are the root cause of the most vivid manifestation of the immigration issue: the hundreds of thousands of migrant families from Central America who have surged toward the southwestern border, fleeing violence and poverty.
In a Tuesday afternoon “deputies” conference call last year with about 50 or 60 officials from across government, Mr. Miller demanded to know why nearly all of the families seeking asylum were passing the first hurdle — a screening interview to determine whether they have a “credible fear” of persecution if they were returned to their home countries.
Mr. Miller and others in the White House were outraged that 90 percent or more of the applicants passed the first screening, a concern during the Bush administration, as well. Immigration judges ultimately deny all but about 20 percent of the asylum requests, but because of a backlog of hundreds of thousands of cases, many asylum seekers wait years for their case to be heard for the second time, giving them the chance to gain work permits, build roots and disappear in the United States.
To Mr. Miller, the asylum process was a giant loophole that needed to be plugged. And he faulted the asylum officers at Citizenship and Immigration Services who were conducting the screenings for having a cultural bias that made them overly sympathetic to the asylum seekers. “You need to tighten up,” Miller insisted.
Immigration officials on the conference call did not disagree that too many migrants were granted asylum in the initial “credible fear” screening. But the rules for conducting the screenings were written into law by Congress and designed to be generous so that persecuted people had a real opportunity to seek asylum. It was unclear, the officials said, what else the agency could do.
Listening to Mr. Miller continue to hammer the issue, two people on the call recalled, it was almost as if Mr. Miller wanted asylum officers to ignore the law. At one point during the call, Mr. Cissna erupted in frustration.
“Enough. Enough. Stand down!” he said.
But such pressure from the White House was hardly unique, according to officials from multiple agencies.
For instance, a federal judge last week ruled that the White House early in the administration had improperly pressured officials at Citizenship and Immigration Services to terminate an immigration program for Haiti called Temporary Protected Status.
The judge said the decision in 2017 to end the program was contrary to the statute and indicated that the White House had strongly influenced the department.
More recently, White House officials pushed during one of the Tuesday afternoon conference calls to have Border Patrol agents, instead of asylum officers, conduct “credible fear” interviews. The notion, they said, was that the Border Patrol agents could process interviews quickly and cut out the several-day wait to schedule a meeting with an asylum officer.
Many of the immigration officials recoiled at the idea. Assigning agents to interview duty would pull them from their primary roles at the ports and along the border. Even worse, asylum laws require interviewers to undergo up to two months of training that would strain the already understaffed Border Patrol stations.
But even if they could be trained, officials told the White House, the logistics would be a nightmare. Cramped Border Patrol stations — many of which look like small, rural police stations — were not set up to conduct scores of two-hour interviews with hundreds of migrants flooding into border communities each day.
When the idea leaked out in early April, immigrant rights advocates accused the Trump administration of trying to prevent migrants from have a real chance at asylum.
“Border Patrol officers are simply not qualified to do this,” said Eleanor Acer, the director of the refugee program at Human Rights First. “This will put unfit, untrained and unqualified agents in charge of determining who warrants potentially lifesaving protection in the United States.”
To Mr. Miller and other White House officials, it was another instance in which the law and machinations of government were getting in the way of needed changes. And they think there are many others.
In November, as Mr. Trump railed publicly about the dangers of migrant caravans from Central America, a top White House domestic policy adviser floated the idea of taking migrants who had been apprehended to so-called sanctuary cities represented by Democrats. Homeland security officials, who saw the idea as political retribution, resisted.
In an email, Matthew Albence, the acting deputy director of ICE, said that it would create “an unnecessary operational burden” and that transporting the migrants to a different location was not “a justified expenditure.” Lawyers at the Department of Homeland Security, including Mr. Mitnick, also questioned the idea’s legality.
The idea was dropped until last week when news stories about the rejected proposal prompted Mr. Trump to say his administration was still considering the option.
Mr. Trump has also not given up on the idea of shutting down the southern border, a move economists have said would be catastrophic and halt nearly $1.7 billion of goods and services that flow across the border each day.
Even as Mr. Trump retreated publicly and said he would give Mexico a year to do more to prevent migrants from reaching the southern border of the United States, he has made it clear to his advisers privately that the closing was still on the table.
His insistence increased the friction with his top immigration officials, especially Ms. Nielsen, who tried to talk him out of closing the ports of entry and refusing to grant asylum. Ms. Nielsen explained why she could not do that, citing economic and legal issues — banning migrants from seeking asylum would be against the law.
When Ms. Nielsen did not give the president the answer he sought, he turned to Kevin McAleenan, the commissioner of Customs and Border Protection, and asked him to stop migrants from entering the country. Mr. Trump told Mr. McAleenan that he would pardon him if he ran into any legal problems, according to officials familiar with the conversation — though he denied it in a tweet Saturday night.
Ms. Nielsen’s refusal to shut down the southern border appeared to be the final straw for Mr. Trump. After forcing her resignation, he named Mr. McAleenan the acting secretary of the department.
But Mr. Miller remains unsatisfied. Lately, he has made clear to immigration officials and others in the White House that he remains frustrated with the still-pending regulation on welfare benefits for immigrants. After nearly two years of painstaking work and more than 200,000 public comments, the 447-page rule is on track to eventually be published.
And it is not clear that the political bloodletting is over. Mr. Cissna and Mr. Mitnick remain in bureaucratic limbo, having received neither their walking papers nor an explicit stay of execution. While Mr. McAleenan is now the acting secretary of homeland security, rumors persist that Mr. Trump may want someone else to be the permanent head of the department.
Inside the immigration agencies, there is a persistent rumor that Mr. Trump may yet name an immigration czar to better coordinate — or, some believe, control — the sprawling immigration bureaucracy.

At Last someone within the GOP has admitted what is really going on. TOTUS is using the Presidency as a reality show to get his agenda passed. Thus does not take away from the fact that Congress is barely functioning and has for some time. There is barely unity within each party aside from the space between the House and Senate. Informed voters need to get the facts on their choice before elections and understand that Government is not entertainment but a life-altering system which requires smart, serious and “honest” people to manage it.MA

By Devan Cole, CNN 3 hrs ago

Republican Florida Sen. Rick Scott said Sunday that President Donald Trump’s threat to place immigrants into so-called sanctuary cities might just be the President trying to “make everybody crazy.”
“I don’t know whether it’s legal or illegal. I mean, maybe he’s just saying this to make everybody crazy. Make everybody talk about it on their shows,” Scott, who represents Florida, told CNN’s Jake Tapper on “State of the Union.”
Scott added: “But what I do know is I’ve been up there — I’ve been in the Senate for 90 days, we’re not securing our border. We’re not enforcing our laws.”

On Friday, Trump said that his administration is “strongly looking at” the possibility of releasing immigrants into sanctuary cities, undercutting earlier denials from his own administration officials.

“In California, the governor wants to have a lot of people coming in, refugees coming in, a lot of sanctuary cities, so we’ll give them to the sanctuary cities maybe to take care of if it’s that the way we want it,” he said during an event at the White House.
Earlier in the day, he said on Twitter that because Democrats “are unwilling to change our very dangerous immigration laws, we are indeed, as reported, giving strong considerations to placing Illegal Immigrants in Sanctuary Cities only,” adding that “The Radical Left always seems to have an Open Borders, Open Arms policy — so this should make them very happy!”
Trump’s remarks came after the White House and Department of Homeland Security said they were no longer pursuing the suggestion to have DHS release immigrants detained at the southern border into sanctuary cities in part to retaliate against Democrats who oppose Trump’s plans for a border wall.
Scott also told Tapper that “sanctuary cities are illegal” and that Democrats cannot “pick and choose what laws you do.”
“What I don’t get is why don’t we try to solve the problem. We don’t want illegal immigration, we don’t want people coming illegally across the border, ” Scott said. “We want legal immigration. I’m from a state that we love immigrants, but we want legal immigration. So it’s frustrating to me we’re not getting anything done.”


*Line one of the Declaration of Independence.

It seems to me that we are again on the threshold of declaring Independence. This time from the partisan politics that has stifled the election of qualified and less dishonest representatives. With the advent of Trumpedation, we have been saddled with a set of radical right of center cabinet members and a Justice Department that knows none. There has been and always will be right, left and centrist politicians but there was at one time the overall sense of working for ALL voters rather than primarily targeting certain groups. This administration has been staffed with “Toadies” and pecksniffs led by TOTUS and “Botch” Mc Connell. These two miscreants have brought Government to a new low that will take years to rise out of. The key to better government is better representatives but only if we become informed voters and avoid the kool aid of entertainment politics.

A Plan is the strategy for the successful completion of a project. A strategy is not a list of objectives, but the means of achieving those objectives. Any project without a Plan is a project wandering in the wilderness.

The administration is abetted by a Congress of seat fillers has shown that the “trump” method of running a business (or Governing) is working without a net or plan to advance an agenda, then changing or abandoning the idea if it doesn’t work as thought (or assumed). This administration looks more like an edition of the “apprentice” rather than a Governing body. The revolving door of agency heads has stifled any real progress and the small amount of progress is slowly creeping down to zero which has the potential to severely limit our (The United States) ability to operate on the world stage and by extension here at home. The small mind behind many of TOTUS’S ideas points to Mr. Steven Miller who is a shadow of Steve Bannon. This administration operates on a limited intelligence basis as the knowledgeable members have little to no power of persuasion over policies that they understand will have little to no influence in a positive way but possible extreme negative effects. There is no logic to the actions of this administration and the Neer do wells in Congress are powerless or have no desire to be the corrective force. This leaves the corrections to the informed voters.

The old saw: “O, what a tangled web we weave when first we practise to deceive!” stated by Walter Scott has played out and continues to do so in the current administration. It is apparent that TOTUS has followed the path of least intelligence all of his life. He has bullied his way into prominence using superlatives (often wrong) that sound correct at the time. His methodology has been to flaunt unsubstantiated facts regarding his wealth and abilities while doing a “Bernie Madoff” on his business contacts. The issue of tax returns may be the written proof of his suspect business acumen(?). His administration is all about him and not the voters (unless you are his base and a member of his administration). Unfortunately, our neer do well Congress has become complicit in his poor behavior by ceding their power to him. The Congressional leader (BOTCH McConnel) has let us all down but that was apparent in the overt resistance to any pro citizen initiatives and the appointment of fair-minded judges. Currently “BOTCH” has laid low on issues that any moral person in Congress or not would object to yet kowtows to extreme Conservative groups for election purposes. The tangled web gets stickier by the day and the solution is and always has been informed voters.
