    The Next President is...

    https://www.latimes.com/nation/la-na-obamacare-court-ruling-20160512-snap-story.html https://www.npr.org/2017/10/12/540920671/trump-administration-to-end-obamacare-subsidies-for-the-poor But the subsidies had never been funded by Congress, and the White House on Thursday said that because there was no appropriation for it, "the Government cannot lawfully make the cost-sharing reduction payments."

    A. Didn't know this was a "reply when I demand it" forum. B. Wanted to wait until Trump had actually done something and not contribute to the infinite "reportedly," "supposedly," and "sources say" world that exists with this Administration. C. Am receive only at work for baseops, so had to wait until I got home to comment. D. Wish he hadn't done it. As I said during Obama's many stretches of the executive authority (BTW, were you all up in arms with him or was it ok because, well, he's Obama? Still can't get over how the court prohibits Trump from overturning Obama's executive action but prevents Trump from doing many others), it would just make it more tempting for the next guy, R or D, to move the ball further down the field. Next guy will do the same and then some. Not a good road to be taking, regardless of party. E. Crafty, but little reported, is that Trump is using one of Obama's previous Executive Orders to call this National Emergency under. E. Actual high profile Democrats are calling for removing even the existing parts of any barriers and unlimited, uncontrolled immigration. What could possibly go wrong with either their future elections or to the country?

    https://www.law.cornell.edu/uscode/text/18/798 TS/SCI, special access information on my personal e-mail, never mind my own personal server which by its very presence violates yet another federal law. https://www.law.cornell.edu/uscode/text/5/552 One law for me, another for thee or Too Big To Jail I'm agin that.

    Over/under on total number of candidates for President on the Democrat side for 2020? Also, if she accuses, she must be believed. Or if you do racist things - blackface/KKK robes, even if 30 years ago, you are racist now. Right, Robert Byrd?

    TSA officially calling CNN report "fake news." So, CNN does have a track record of such especially anything the current Administration touches. On the other hand, it is the 'gubmint' which has a long, bi-partisan record of: So, who to believe? On the other hand, this could be a blessing in disguise if air travel is rid of the pestilence of TSA. Worst case, short term, is the National Guard a la immediate post-9/11. Funny how Trump is to blame and not the other side of the table as well. This could be a great opportunity for a deal as both sides have drawn a deep line in the sand and if they back down without a countering win, then at least Trump is toast. Which may be the long game of both Democrats and Republicans.

    We actually agree. I'm not a Trump the man fan per se. I do like very much what he represents and what he accomplished in upsetting Washington on both sides. I've stated it multiple times before - he beat 16 other run of the mill and/or RINO Republicans, then he beat Hillary. Why is that? Washington, on both sides, didn't like the fact that the plebes upset their collective applecart and are reacting to that 'outrage.' It has been amusing/saddening to see the true intentions/character/actions of the NeverTrumpers and the Republican leadership as well as the Democrats' going full retard in blind opposition (when this is probably the guy to do a deal with). To wit, with the House and the Senate, the GOP refused to repeal Obamacare, among other issues, that they swore, repeatedly, was their priority. They had their chance, for two years, and refused to do so, because they lied repeatedly. If he's allowed to succeed, massive character flaws and all, then the DC good times are jeopardized for a long while, not just this anomaly that thus far has caused the Weekly Standard to go belly-up along with the cushy editorial jobs/TV appearances. So, I want Trump to succeed. Not to stroke his massive, yet curiously fragile, ego, but to demonstrate that the great unwashed masses still run the show, not the select few, or as stated above, "Those in society, who’s opinions matter on the topic." I want to believe that my opinion matters. And I want my children to have that opportunity as well.

    Indeed. What a maroon... Remember when he said, "If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor?!" In all 57 states? Even if you get your healthcare from a Navy corpseman? Nah...me neither...

    Gun Talk

    Way to go, Ohio! So happy you stuck it to this RINO! http://www.mrpolitic.com/2018/12/27/ohio-legislature-defeats-kasichs-veto-on-gun-owner-rights-bill/ Essentially, the now approved bill makes it the State's burden to prove a self-defense shooting wasn't just that. Previous law, and Kasich's preferred method, is that the individual had to prove innocence. Fcuk him and his horse.

    Obama "mishandled" and Trump fired as Hillary "mishandled" her TS/SCI (and above) e-mails and I'd be in Leavenworth for doing the same.

    Further, McCrystal talked smack about Obama (to a reporter, no less!) and was rightly fired. Mattis talks smack to the President, egged on by the press, and Trump's the one at fault. Gospel on one hand. Blasphemy on the other. Farewell, logic and facts. We hardly knew ye...

    Remind me, how much time did Obama give Mattis when he relieved him of command in CENTCOM?
