The Mt Sinai Medical Center is tracking 9/11 responders. They report a 30% higher cancer incidence in responders than that of the general populace at large.

I'm afraid we're likely to see the same kind of thing from the Paradise fire where first in responders spent 10+ days working and camping in the toxic smoke/fumes/dust without respiratory protection.

Bill Tozer

At the Florida rally that MSNBC and Clinton News Network refused to cover, I felt Trump was rather subdued in his delivery as he graciously reached out to the other side in the spirit of reconciliation. Let bygones be bygones. I was particularly touched by Trump going out of his way to give a shout out to My Gal. Let the healing begin.

Somewhere off in the distance during the speech, I thought I heard the sound of Democrats shaking in their heels. I do have to wonder if the hostess of Democracy Now! will struggle getting the words out of her mouth tonight. A most moving, yet low key, rally.

Paul Emery

Gosh and Golly Walt the President doesn't write bills but he sure does create them-record deficits under the Trumpster. What happened to the Tea Party???

Gregory I did say that-pretty clever I think. Ever heard of sarcasm?

Donald Trump: As projected in Table S-10 in the FY 2020 budget, Trump plans to add $5.088 trillion to the debt in his first term. That's a 30 percent increase from the $20.245 trillion debt at the end of Obama's last budget for FY 2017. If he remains in office for a second term, he plans to add $9.1 trillion. Trump had promised to eliminate the debt during his campaign.

FY 2021 - $1.276 trillion.
FY 2020 - $1.281 trillion.
FY 2019 - $1.314 trillion.
FY 2018 - $1.217 trillion.

Wiggly Pig - "They report a 30% higher cancer incidence in responders than that of the general populace at large."
And what is the incidence rate nationally for first responders that weren't involved in rescues/response on 9/11 in NY?
Comparing to the general populace is not productive.
The whole thing is moot anyway. They will get treatment.
The evil Rs are not trying to stop that. Just more lunatic ranting from left wing haters searching for something, anything, to gain traction on the national stage.
And since you seem to like being here Jiggy, how about some backup on your name calling or perhaps an honest apology is in order.

I agree Emery, Trump should just shut the GOV. down till a budget shows up the fixes it all. How do you think that would play out???
HHHUUUMMMMMMMMM?????????
Anymore stupid LIB comments and questions?

So the Paradise fire is special? What about all the firefighters in the 49ER fire? Or any other for that matter? Been there done that.
6 years of fighting those fires breathing in GOD knows what.
Plenty of other things in my lifetime to blame my ills on.
But anything for the sake of blaming something on.

https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/news/trump-campaign-manager-polling-is-dead
"President Trump's campaign manager says polling is no longer reliable, days after a big leak of unflattering internal polling data.

"I just think the country is too complex now to call a couple hundred people and ask them what they think," Brad Parscale told CBS News hours ahead of Trump's event in Orlando, Fla., to officially kick off his 2020 campaign.

"There are so many ways and different people who show up and vote now. The way turnout works now," he said. "The abilities we have now to turn out voters. The polling can't understand that. And that's why the polling was so wrong in 2016. It was 100% wrong. Nobody got it right — not one public poll. The reason why — it's not 1962 anymore." "

Bad news in Florida from the Orlando Sentinel. Trump is losing to Biden in Florida polls.


"Donald Trump is in Orlando to announce the kickoff of his re-election campaign.

We’re here to announce our endorsement for president in 2020, or, at least, who we’re not endorsing: Donald Trump.

https://www.orlandosentinel.com/opinion/editorials/os-op-sentinel-not-endorsing-donald-trump-2020-20190618-63ya7cyb5ngf3irllodwxnznui-story.html

Some readers will wonder how we could possibly eliminate a candidate so far before an election, and before knowing the identity of his opponent.

Because there’s no point pretending we would ever recommend that readers vote for Trump.

After 2½ years we’ve seen enough.
Live Updates All Day Today: President Trump in Orlando for re-election rally »

Enough of the chaos, the division, the schoolyard insults, the self-aggrandizement, the corruption, and especially the lies.

So many lies — from white lies to whoppers — told out of ignorance, laziness, recklessness, expediency or opportunity.

Trump’s capacity for lying isn’t the surprise here, though the frequency is.

It’s the tolerance so many Americans have for it.

There was a time when even a single lie — a phony college degree, a bogus work history — would doom a politician’s career.

Not so for Trump, who claimed in 2017 that he lost the popular vote because millions of people voted illegally (they didn’t). In 2018 he said North Korea was no longer a nuclear threat (it is). And in 2019 he said windmills cause cancer (they don’t). Just last week he claimed the media fabricated unfavorable results from his campaign’s internal polling (it didn’t).

According to a Washington Post database, the president has tallied more than 10,000 lies since he took office.

Trump’s successful assault on truth is the great casualty of this presidency, followed closely by his war on decency.

Trump insults political opponents and national heroes alike with middle-school taunts. He demonstrates no capacity for empathy or remorse. He misuses his office to punish opponents, as when he recently called for a boycott of AT&T to get even with his least favorite media outlet, CNN. He tears down institutions, once airily suggesting the U.S. should try having a leader for life as China now allows. He seems incapable of learning a lesson, telling an ABC interviewer last week — just two months after Robert Mueller’s report on election interference was released — that he would accept dirt on an opponent from Russia or China.

Trump has diminished our standing in the world. He reneges on deals, attacks allies and embraces enemies.

This nation must never forget that humiliating public moment in Helsinki in 2018 when the president of the United States chose to accept Vladimir Putin’s denials of Russian interference in the 2016 election over the unanimous assessment of the American intelligence community.

Such a betrayal by a U.S. president would have been the unforgivable political sin in normal times.

As if that’s not enough, Trump declares his love for North Korea’s Kim Jong-un, a genuine villain who starves and enslaves his people and executes his enemies with antiaircraft guns and flamethrowers.

But he wrote the president a “beautiful letter.” Flattery will get you everywhere with this president, and that’s dangerous.

Domestically, the president’s signature issue — immigration — has moved in fits and starts. Happily, he abandoned pursuing an outright — and unconstitutional — ban on Muslims entering the U.S., opting instead to restrict travel for people from a handful of nations, most of them majority Muslim.

He’s tried separating families, sending troops to the border and declaring a national emergency. For all of that, illegal border crossings are, as the president himself calls it, at crisis levels.

He blames House Democrats because casting blame is Trump’s forte. But Republicans controlled the House and the Senate for two full years. That seemed like an ideal time to fix what the president believes ails our immigration laws.

Even with Democrats now controlling the House, where is Trump’s much-touted deal-making mojo, an attribute he campaigned on?

“But the economy!”

Yes, the market has done well since Trump’s election.

The S&P 500 was up about 21% between Trump’s inauguration and May 31 of his third year in office. Under President Obama, it was up about 56% in that same period.

Unemployment is headed down, as it was during seven straight years under Obama.

Wages are up, and that’s a welcome change. But GDP increases so far are no better than some periods under Obama. Deficit spending under Obama was far too high, in part because of the stimulus needed to dig out of the Great Recession. Under Trump, it’s still headed in the wrong direction, once again pushing $1 trillion even though the economy is healthy.

Trump seems to care nothing about the deficit and the national debt, which once breathed life into the Tea Party.

Through all of this, Trump’s base remains loyal. Sadly, the truest words Trump might ever have spoken was when he said he could shoot someone on Fifth Avenue and not lose his supporters.

This non-endorsement isn’t defaulting to whomever the Democrats choose. This newspaper has a history of presidential appointments favoring Republicans starting in the mid-20th century. Except for Lyndon Johnson in 1964, the Sentinel backed Republican presidential nominees from 1952 through 2004, when we recommended John Kerry over another four years of George W. Bush.

As recently as 2012 we recommended Republican Mitt Romney because of what seemed at the time to be Obama’s failure to adequately manage the nation’s finances.

If — however unlikely — a Republican like Romney, now a senator from Utah, or former Ohio Gov. John Kasich successfully primaried the president, we would eagerly give them a look. Same if an independent candidate mounted a legitimate campaign.

We’d even consider backing Trump if, say, he found the proverbial cure for cancer or — about as likely — changed the essence of who he is (he won’t).

The nation must endure another 1½ years of Trump. But it needn’t suffer another four beyond that.

We can do better. We have to do better."

OH how the LIBS will howl.
Can you see a screen on the LIB debate floor?
https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2019/06/18/report-trump-considering-live-tweeting-during-the-democrat-debates/

"The Wall Street Journal, citing “people familiar with the planning,” said Trump intends to deviate from the wishes of his advisers and is “tentatively planning” on live-tweeting during the events both nights.
Reactions seem to be split. According the report, Trump’s advisers would rather see the Democrat candidates tear each other apart without distractions from the president. However, it is likely that Trump – who built his presidential legacy on speaking directly to the American people – wants America to know that he is engaged and ready to defend his position and the MAGA legacy he started."

The Proggys would be in such disarray. Watching every word they say, knowing Trump is there ready to pounce, and shred them like field mice.
That's one way to keep they lying bastards half way honest.(I know. No such thing as an honest LIB)

JigW 617pm - "The Mt Sinai Medical Center is tracking 9/11 responders. They report a 30% higher cancer incidence in responders than that of the general populace at large." Not sure you understood my point. But let's use this 30% cancer incidence number. This says that out of every 1,000 9/11 responders who reported cancer, only 231 of them would have gotten cancer due to their 9/11 work. We are paying unnecessarily for the medical care of the remaining 769 cancer victims who would have contracted it from other than 9/11 causes, simply because our politics demands it. That means that we are paying about 3.33 times as much for health benefits than we should were we to only care for the 9/11 cancer victims.

This a sure fire way to win votes and re election by gun owners.
https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2019/06/18/il-sen-taunts-gun-owner-forget-the-fine-maybe-well-just-take-your-firearms/
"Illinois State Sen. Julie Morrison (D) taunted a concerned gun owner during a town hall by telling him she might forgo fining him and simply confiscate his firearms.
The exchange was caught on video by the Illinois State Rifle Association and was tied to proposed fines for keeping commonly owned semiautomatic firearms in one’s home.

The concerned gun owner pointed to SB107 and said the purpose of it was “to take away [his] semiautomatic firearms.”

The gun owner then asked, “If I get to keep it–if I pay a fine and register it–then, how dangerous is it in the first place and why do you need to ban it all?”

People in attendance applauded the gun owner’s point and once applause died Morrison said, “Well, you just maybe changed my mind. Maybe we won’t have a fine at all, maybe it’ll just be a confiscation and we won’t have to worry about paying the fine.”

And these elected Proggys claim to uphold the Constitution?

Your ignorance is blatant, but I hope it is out of ignorance and not simply greed. Equating the 49r fire to Paradise is ludicrous. The 49r fire (and yes I was in it) was a 99.9% carbohydrate burn (vegetation). Products of carb fires are "light" and the bulk of it rises quickly into the sky. In comparison, Paradise was a 16,000 unit structure fire comprised of burning plastics, metal, and assorted chemical products. The chemical plume was a "heavy" blanket of burned and volatilized product that lay close to the ground for several weeks. That you endured a few days of smoke from grass, trees and relatively limited structures is commendable, but don't even pretend you were in Paradise.

Woody can be almost forgiven....almost. He supported white supremacy and white nationalism. Friggin hippies took up that song and have not changed one bit.

“In the context of America, a nation-state built by settler colonialism, Woody Guthrie’s protest anthem exemplifies the particular blind spot that Americans have in regard to Natives: American patriotism erases us, even if it comes in the form of a leftist protest song," Obomsawin says.

"This land 'was' our land," she continues. "Through genocide, broken treaties, and a legal system created by and for the colonial interest, this land 'became' American land. But to question the legitimacy of American land control today instantly makes one the most radical person in the room–even in leftist circles. And because Indigenous critiques of this country are so fundamental, our voices are often marginalized to the point of invisibility."

“Guthrie, she says, can almost be forgiven. After all, he was raised in a less woke era and inculcated in an American culture that he may have resented, but which brainwashed him with certain values, anyway, like imperialism and, yes, white supremacy and white nationalism.

That's right, by penning one of the earliest and most famous protest songs in history, Woody Guthrie inadvertently contributed to the spread of white nationalism. And it's not only up to modern leftists to reject "This Land is Your Land," out of concern for their Native bretheren, it's required that they make amends and alter their outlook so that they don't repeat Guthrie's crimes.”

Money is the mothers milk of politics -

President Trump held a rally in Orlando on Tuesday night billed as the kickoff to his reelection campaign. And according to the Republican National Committee, he received nearly $25 million in contributions in less than a day.

RNC Chair Ronna McDaniel announced Wednesday that Trump raised a “record breaking $24.8M in less than 24 hours for his re-election.”

“The enthusiasm across the country for this President is unmatched and unlike anything we’ve ever seen!” she tweeted.

Trump’s one-day haul is nearly four times the amount former Vice President Joe Biden raised in the first 24 hours after announcing his 2020 presidential campaign.

Biden took in $6.3 million, the largest first-day total for any of the 2020 Democratic presidential candidates. According to Biden’s campaign, the money was raised from nearly 97,000
individual donors across all 50 states.

The former vice president’s campaign raised slightly more in its first 24 hours than former Texas Rep. Beto O’Rourke ($6.1 million) and Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders ($5.9 million).

Not an earth shaking story and one that flies under the radar, but some eerily similarities. Weismann, the FBI, and warrants. More John Solomon shoe leather:

“In search warrant affidavits, the FBI portrayed the ledger as one reason it resurrected a criminal case against Manafort that was dropped in 2014 and needed search warrants in 2017 for bank records to prove he worked for the Russian-backed Party of Regions in Ukraine........

“There’s just one problem: The FBI’s public reliance on the ledger came months after the feds were warned repeatedly that the document couldn’t be trusted and likely was a fake, according to documents and more than a dozen interviews with knowledgeable sources.

“It was not to be considered a document of Manafort. It was not authenticated. And at that time it should not be used in any way to bring accusations against anybody,” Kholodnytsky said, recalling what he told FBI agents.

First, the agent failed to disclose that both FBI officials and Department of Justice (DOJ) prosecutor Andrew Weissmann, who later became Mueller’s deputy, met with those AP reporters one day before the story was published and assisted their reporting.

So, essentially, the FBI cited a leak that the government had facilitated and then used it to support the black ledger evidence, even though it had been clearly warned about the document.

Secondly, the FBI was told the ledger claimed to show cash payments to Manafort when, in fact, agents had been told since 2014 that Manafort received money only by bank wires, mostly routed through the island of Cyprus, memos show.

During the 2014 investigation, Manafort and his partner Richard Gates voluntarily identified for FBI agents tens of millions of dollars they received from Ukrainian and Russian sources and the shell companies and banks that wired the money. “Gates stated that the amounts they received would match the amounts they invoiced for services. Gates added they were always paid late, and in tranches,” FBI memos I obtained show.

Liberal law professor Alan Dershowitz said FBI affidavits almost never cite news articles as evidence. “They are supposed to cite the primary evidence and not secondary evidence,” he said.

“It sounds to me like a fraud on the court, possibly a willful and deliberate fraud that should have consequences for both the court and the attorneys’ bar,” he added.

Drain that swamp -

The Merit Act will streamline the process, making it easier for the government to terminate under-performing government workers. The Merit Act will:

Shorten the amount of time required to remove under-performing employees.
Allow agencies to remove a senior executive for performance reasons, instead of merely demoting the senior executive.

Limit retirement benefits of employees who are removed from their position due to a felony conviction related to their official duties.

Authorize agencies to recoup bonuses and other awards when performance or conduct issues are discovered through investigations and performance reviews.

Extend the probationary period for competitive appointments and promotions from one to two years so that there remains an adequate amount of time to evaluate a new employee.

Curb the ability to use intermediaries to overrule or undermine Merit Systems Protection Board precedent.

Uphold whistleblower protections.

I am surprised that the Dems didn’t give him a medal and elevate his status to hero.

“Prosecutors dismissed arguments by Cosko’s team of attorneys that drugs were behind the defendant’s behavior and that high-end counseling and treatment paid for by his parents could cure it. They said Cosko’s behavior was premeditated and deliberate and that he took pleasure in learning of Republicans’ pain.

“Prosecutors said Cosko laughed “aha it ruined [Hatch’s] wifes birthday [sic].”

Poor Rand Paul. First, the Kkkkrazy Bernie Bro shot at him, then Rand’s Kkkrazy neighbor busted up his ribs, then this guy posted his personal addresses and phone numbers, knowing that others would use the information to harass him (Rand Paul) prosecutors said.

Yep, it ain’t safe or easy being a Libertarian, Conservative, or non-conformist in a Leftinista Socialist world. It’s who they are and each day they supply us with reams of evidence....evidence they deny and they call extreme or absurd, roflmao.

Once again, a 'plan' is just a goal with no details other than it will be wonderful.
I actually think that if NY state follows through and really does try hard enough, they will achieve their goal.
https://www.eenews.net/stories/1060616261
Most all productive people and businesses will leave the state and all the wealthy will be able to afford all the electric toys that shove the pollution somewhere else. Remaining will be the poor who will not pollute because they won't have anything to do or anyplace to go.
Of course entire city blocks being set on fire won't count.
Go for it, NY - we can hardly wait to see how this
turns out!

Oh boy, best to stock up on ammo. Biden is coming for us. Fighin’ words.

“There are certain things where it just takes a brass-knuckle fight. … Let’s start a real physical revolution if you’re talking about it.” —Joe “Double-Barrel Shotgun” Biden

And other quotes....Hey, Buck made the Daily Quotes...moving up in the world.

Upright: “Self-righteousness untempered by humility makes a country cruel. And that is exactly the nation America’s illiberal ideologues hope to create.” —David French

Warning shot: “When faced with a demonstrably erroneous precedent, my rule is simple: We should not follow it.” —Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas

Braying Jenny: “[The U.S. government is] running concentration camps on our southern border. … We are losing to an authoritarian and fascist presidency. … A presidency that creates concentration camps is fascist and it’s very difficult to say that.” —Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

Grand delusions: “None of this would be happening if Trump didn’t back out of the Iran nuclear deal. America’s response should be to return to the table and reinstate the Iran nuclear deal. Increasing tensions and threats of war serve nobody’s interests.” —Rep. lhan Omar

Annals of the absurd: “I would imagine we’ve probably had excellent presidents who were gay — we just didn’t know which ones.” —Mayor Pete Buttigieg

Non Compos Mentis: “Because everything landed on President Obama’s desk but locusts at the time, he had no time to explain the Affordable Care Act.” —Joe Biden

The BIG Lie: “Guns like the AR-15 aren’t used for hunting and they’re not viable for home protection. They have only one purpose, and that’s to fire as many rounds as possible, as quickly as possible. Outlawing these weapons, an action supported by 60 percent of Americans, will bring down the number of mass shootings and reduce the number of casualties, just as it did when the ban first passed in 1994.” —Senators Chris Murphy and Dianne Feinstein

And last… “The single biggest threat to American civility in public life and cultural unity is the weaponization of double standards against ideological opponents. We could adapt to a society with equal but strict expectations. But rules based on capricious wokeness lead to Leftist tyranny.” —Buck Sexton
————————-
Bonus: “It is now clear that Robert Mueller quit digging when all the tunnels led back to Hillary Clinton and Barrack Obama.”

Bonus II: “I will usher in Communism by any means necessary.”

Tis the season -

But the USA Today/Suffolk University survey showed 49 percent of Americans approving of the job Trump’s doing as president, with 48 percent giving him a thumbs down.
That’s a more positive showing for Trump compared with other recent polling of his presidential approval rating.

And in the new survey, 49 percent of voters predicted Trump would win re-election, with 38 percent pointing to a victory by the eventual Democratic presidential nominee.

No job for weaklings -

LE BOURGET, France—Efforts to get Boeing Co.’s BA -1.44% 737 MAX jetliners back in the air have been delayed in part by concerns about whether the average pilot has enough physical strength to turn a mechanical crank in extreme emergencies.

The concerns have made the crank—which moves a horizontal panel on the plane’s tail—the focus of engineering analysis, simulator sessions and flight testing by the plane maker and U.S. air-safety officials, according to people familiar with the details. The extent of the internal debate hasn’t been previously reported.

Use of the crank is intended as the final step in an emergency checklist to counteract dangerous movements of the tail’s horizontal stabilizer, such as those involved in two fatal crashes of MAX aircraft when an automated flight-control system malfunctioned.

Turning the crank to adjust the horizontal stabilizer can help change the angle of the plane’s nose. Under certain conditions, including at unusually high speeds with the panel already at a steep angle, moving the crank can take a lot of force. Among other things, the people familiar with the details said, regulators are concerned about whether female aviators—who typically have less upper-body strength than their male counterparts—may find it difficult to turn the crank in an emergency.

Well Emery,, demand your LIBS get with the program. First there needs to be an actual crime. To bad the manufactured one has come back to bite.
Then you need the necessary votes in the House to get the ball rolling. Your sadly plenty short.
Then there is that little problem with the Senate. You should be able to figure that one out.

But keep beating that dead horse named "Impeachment".

PAul Emry is deranged just like his hero AOC and Liz Warren. He would support a communist for President over a free enterprise American. And Trump is totally fine mentally. Only the people with a mental illness think he is not. I suggest Paul Emery re-up his meds and get back on earth.

Gregory

We'll put Paul down for a count or two of obstruction of justice. No horse was stolen but he did his best to keep the gallows from being constructed knowing no horse was stolen and being constitutionally allowed to direct the Justice department under his powers as President.

I'm not sure where the corrupt intent would be found.

I'm also not sure what an impeachment by the House (I doubt the Speaker could get a majority in the House to vote for it) would do when it's guaranteed the Senate would not vote to remove him from office.

Besides all but assure Trump's reelection, with a landslide of middle ground voters pissed off at the spectacle.

“At full capacity, the crowd did seem to extend almost five people deep from the stage, though the group's extensive preparations — a massive stage and sound system, designated line areas, and what appear to be first aid and merchandise tents — could probably be considered overkill.”

“At one point, though, it seems like there were more people on stage than in the audience.”

Art Arthur, a resident fellow at the Center for Immigration Studies (CIS) and former immigration judge, refuted Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s (D-NY) characterization of U.S. migrant detention facilities as “concentration camps,” calling her comments “offensive” and noting that Democrats had no objection to these same facilities when the Obama administration used them. What is truly “reprehensible,” Arthur said, is the refusal of Congressional Democrats like Ocasio-Cortez to provide the humanitarian funding requested by the Trump administration to alleviate the suffering of migrant children and families.

Well you know what I say about polls. First, it’s the lazy wa to do news. Make the poll the news and just talk about it. Not good journalism. Polls are just a snapshot of today by the time you read them, they are yesterday’s news. 6 months is a lifetime in politics, so I usually pay them no nevermind until after Labor Day, 2020. With that said, polls this far can switch in a month.....or even in a week. :)

“The poll also found that a majority of respondents in all three states opposed Congress launching an impeachment inquiry against President Trump; 57% in Wisconsin, 56% in Pennsylvania, and 53% in Michigan opposed such a move. The poll added, “Democrats have become disillusioned with following that path.”

Praise the lord and pass the ammunition! -

Alvin Dupree Jr. loves God and it's not much of a secret around Appleton, Wis.
He's the pastor of a local church and currently serves on the board of education. His campaign platform boasted that he was a "Man of God First" and he would stand for Christian values.

So when Pastor Dupree was invited to deliver the commencement address at North High School, it should not have surprised anyone when he mentioned his relationship with Jesus Christ and ended his remarks with a hearty "God bless!"

"For me, my source of strength is my faith and my relationship with Jesus Christ," the pastor told a cheering crowd at the graduation ceremony. "It sounds like I got some believers in this room. If you're here, you believe that, you go ahead and clap your hands. Never succumb to the pressure of being politically correct. "

The aggrieved atheists were also triggered by another section of the pastor's speech, when he went off script and said "God bless" instead of "best wishes."
The FFRF called the remarks "grossly inappropriate" and accused the pastor of "abusing his position to promote religion."
Dupree, a 20-year combat Marine veteran, defended his remarks and blasted the Freedom From Religion Foundation during an interview on “The Todd Starnes Radio Show.”
"It's an attack on those of us who are open about our faith," he told me. "The Freedom From Religion Foundation and those who think like them are trying to prohibit those of us who will publicly speak up about our faith."

There's no doubt they want to silence Christian citizens, he said.

"I won't be silenced," Dupree said. "I fought for the freedom of speech. I have a father who served in the Army. My daughter serves in the Army. My wife served in the Navy and we all believe in serving God, serving our country, serving our communities."

The pastor said he supports freedom of speech and freedom of religion for everyone – whether they be Jewish, Muslim or Christian.

"But the problem is under the umbrella of inclusion, they want to exclude those of us who have (Christian) faith," he said.

Paul...

Try to remember this time in 2017... as the Mueller investigation started... it was Putin being cuddled by Trump, correct? And we were treated with breathless interruptions periodically announcing the end of Trump being near.

And because Mueller didn't produce the goods... you want Nads Nadler to be given a chunk of money and time to do what Mueller didn't manage to close on. That's about it?

If insanity is doing the same thing over and over again, expecting different results... I'd say Trump isn't the one with mental problems.
