FACISM FOLKS

THE STORY HERE

If you look closely you can see people covering this, with cameras and the like. Those people are under no legal obligation to step in the way of idiots with rocks and pipes to stop them from beating up buildings. You want to use their footage to help identify “rioters,” that’s one thing. You want to make it illegal to show what’s happening in the streets, that’s fascism.

Neil Gorsuch:SUPREME COURT JUSTICE?

Aurora Sentinal Aurora CO

Gorsuch is the closest on Trump’s list to a Washington insider — the son of former EPA administrator Anne Gorsuch, educated in the Ivy League and at Oxford, law clerk to Justice Anthony Kennedy and Bush-era Justice Department official.

His opinions and outside writings, praised for their clear, colloquial style, include a call for courts to second-guess government regulations, defense of religious freedom and skepticism toward law enforcement. He has contended that courts give too much deference to government agencies’ interpretations of statutes. He sided with groups that held religious objections to the Obama administration’s requirements that employers provide health insurance that includes contraception

He is probably the best of the worst that we can expect from “Mr Trump”.

Pryor has a reputation as staunch conservative with a taste for academic rigor. He once called the landmark 1973 decision legalizing abortion the “worst abomination in the history of constitutional law.” As Alabama attorney general, he also angered some conservatives for urging a judicial discipline panel to remove Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore from office after he refused to obey a court order take down a Ten Commandments monument from the lobby of the state judicial building.

Some conservatives also have recently criticized Pryor for his vote in 2011 in favor of a transgender woman who sued for sex discrimination.

Hardiman has sided with jails seeking to strip-search inmates arrested for even minor offenses and has supported gun rights, dissenting in a 2013 case that upheld a New Jersey law to tighten requirements for carrying a handgun in public. Last year, he joined two 3rd Circuit colleagues in affirming the $1 billion settlement of NFL concussion claims, rejecting complaints that men with depression and mood disorders were left out of the deal. A Massachusetts native, he settled in Pittsburgh, where his wife comes from a family of prominent Democrats.

Trump’s Tax Returns

“Trump’s breach of promise over the release of his tax returns is even more gratuitous than (Hillary) Clinton concealing her Goldman Sachs transcripts,” the message read.

WikiLeaks says……uh oh…watch this

WikiLeaks fired back. “Trump Counselor Kellyanne Conway stated today that Trump will not release his tax returns,” WikiLeaks wrote on their Twitter account, before adding, “Send them to: https://wikileaks.org/#submit so we can.”

I’m just astounded with this idiot Trump

Conservative Oklahoma

Points of interest:

(On Election Day, Oklahomans voted down a 1-point sales tax increase meant to raise teacher pay, which is 49th in the nation.).

The most a single-parent family of three can get is $292 a month—that’s 18 percent of the federal poverty line. Only 2,469 of the more than 370,000 Oklahomans aged 18 to 64 who live in poverty get this aid.

 

Trump reinstates ‘Mexico City policy’ on abortion because…….

What is the Mexico City Policy?

this executive order actually has nothing to do with Mexico, despite its name. It’s also not unique to Trump — it’s a policy that gets rescinded or reinstated every time the presidency switches from Democrat to Republican, or vice versa.

Business as usual in DC huh?  Much to do about nothing….same same same…because it has ‘abortion’ in it….it’s CRITICAL for the GOP to rescind it.

Stupid

TPP ? :) :(

Well, he’s gone and done it. proposed free-trade bloc — which would include 12 countries accounting for more than a third of global trade — has been more or less pronounced dead.

Although extensive analysis on the terms of the deal had concluded that any of its economic benefits would likely be meager, proponents of the deal had insisted it was a key component of the American geopolitical “pivot” toward the Asia-Pacific region.

A copy of the local Chinese magazine Global People with a cover story that translates to ‘Why did Trump win’ is seen with a front cover portrait of US president-elect Donald Trump at a news stand in Shanghai on November 14, 2016.

In other words, the TPP would have allowed the U.S. to further define labor, environmental and copyright rules of the global economy, and demonstrated the country’s resolve and commitment to cooperation in a strategically important region. A failure to ratify the deal, the thinking goes, would therefore see China benefit at America’s expense.

All this from this article: http://www.cnbc.com/2016/11/16/chinas-gain-the-collapse-of-the-tpp-could-be-bad-for-everyone.html

Thing is, no one is really sure what the result of this will actually be.  It’s a perceived knee jerk reaction from the GOP and the new ILPOTUS….(that’s illegitimate POTUS, huh?)

So time will tell.

No conflicts, remember?

Another problem is the question of the watchdog group’s standing to sue. There is a general legal rule that to file suit against someone for wrongdoing, a plaintiff must have suffered some specific harm from that wrongdoing. That’s an issue that has hung over all the discussions of an Emoluments Clause lawsuit: If Trump does violate the Constitution, whom does he hurt?

So its likely to get to be difficult for anyone to sue this character for wrong doing.

WHY IS THE GOP SO HOT TO REPEAL ACA

I do wonder about the GOP’s “_______________” need to repeal and replace the ACA to replace it with TrumpCare.

Check this out from FactCheck :  Congressional Health Insurance

Like other large employers, the government pays a large share of the cost of coverage. On average, the government pays 72 percent of the premiums for its workers, up to a maximum of 75 percent depending on the policy chosen. For example, the popular Blue Cross and Blue Shield standard fee-for-service family plan carries a total premium of $1,327.80 per month, of which the beneficiary pays $430.04. Washington, D.C.-based employees who prefer an HMO option might choose the Kaiser standard family plan. It carries a total premium of $825.15 per month, of which the employee pays only $206.29.

Why are they afraid of “ObamaCare”?  Their own choices?: According to the Congressional Research Service, the FEHBP offers about 300 different private health care plans, including five government-wide, fee-for-service plans and many regional health maintenance organization (HMO) plans, plus high-deductible, tax-advantaged plans. All plans cover hospital, surgical and physician services, and mental health services, prescription drugs and “catastrophic” coverage against very large medical expenses. There are no waiting periods for coverage when new employees are hired, and there are no exclusions for preexisting conditions. The FEHBP negotiates contracts annually with all insurance companies who wish to participate. There is plenty of competition for the business; FEHBP is the largest employer-sponsored health plan in the U.S.

Oh, God! Not The Newt

TRUMP APPOINTS ANOTHER ONE

Gingrich, a former speaker of the House, has been an advocate of family values, even though he has a messy personal life. Like Trump, Gingrich is on his third marriage. His first wife was his former high school teacher, who he served divorce papers to while she was recovering from surgery. He dumped his second wife, Marianne, after she came down with a serious illness. While the marriage was crumbling, Gingrich suggested they have an open relationship, according to CNN.

Gingrich married his third wife, Callista Bisek, who was his former mistress. The couple married in the Catholic church.

“He believes that what he says in public and how he lives don’t have to be connected,” said Marianne Gingrich (wife no. 2,) according to an Esquire article.

Colorado GOP pushes bill to repeal state health care

GOP TO REPEAL

Can anyone tell me why the GOP / Republicans / Christians are so against people having healthcare?

But the bill, seen as a mirror to the effort by Republicans in Congress to repeal the Affordable Care Act, offers no replacement plan or suggestions on the benefits of repealing the exchange, which is used by more than 200,000 Coloradans.

What does this even mean? ““It is time to repeal the broken Exchange and build plans for more robust, accessible and affordable health care for Coloradans,” Smallwood said in a statement on the bill, though the plans were not outlined.”

The changes would not apply to any services not covered under Health First Colorado, which have to be paid out-of-pocket by the patient regardless of what provider they see.

Really……what are they trying to do???
