multiple constitutional scholars and lawyers now weighting in
ALL of them using the term OBSTRUCTION OF JUSTICE in one fashion or the other
not enough evidence to force a resignation or begin impeachment
but for the first time I now feel this might be in the cards

also I came across some VERY interesting info
I have not been able to follow up on it yet
it will take quite some time
but a group of investigative journalists have identified a number of Russian shell companies
ALL with the same address (an empty office) in one of the former Soviet republics
these shell companies were used to fund Marine LePen's LOSING election in France recently (you may remember she is the right wing nationalist nut job who was absolutely trounced in the election)
anyway the Russians obviously interfered in the French election by channeling funds through this myriad of shell companies
AND
AND
Wait For It
Trumps name keeps coming up in relation to these fake companies
what his exact involvement is is not known at this time though
whether he actually received money for his campaign-no evidence of this at present
very possibly he received funding for some of his many overseas concerns though
facts still be determined
but the very fact that his name is associated with these fraudulent companies stinks to high heaven

Trump should be sweating bullets right now
but I don't think he has the smarts

It is likely that the mainstream media as well the Far Left is going to continue waiting for the Second Coming of Hilary and a second election.  The investigation in voter fraud will still continue and it is likely to show that perhaps millions of illegals cast votes for Hillary Clinton.  Why spend the time courting them for the last 2 years if she did not think somehow it would make a difference?

Every leader and business person has their style of winning. What we did not need were any more lawyers.  The Democrats continue to suffer defeat after defeat and the latest one is their desperate effort to get a government shutdown so they can say the Republicans are to blame - especially Donald Trump.

As I said months ago in many places on the net, it is time to move on. There wasn't, isn't, and will be no proof that Trump acted with Russia to get elected. Russia is Russia. Of course they are trying to influence our country, our elections, our lives. Is this a news flash? They have been doing it for as long as we have been doing the same thing all over the planet. We get in revolutions, finance weapons, and create insurgencies and have been. We backed Afghanistan and created the Mujaheddin and very likely ISIS to depose Asaad 
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bashar_al-Assad
from power.

What was done with the emails was a crime and should have been prosecuted.

At this point, after eight years of lies and the Democrats who now cry out over issue after issue over things they backed - i.e. the immigration reform.

I would have been afraid if Hilary and her "no fly zone" in Syria had started World War 3 as she told God and everyone else top secret information on a President's time to respond to call a nuclear strike.

I would have been afraid for someone to get in office that was more concerned whether trans-sexuals had their own bathrooms than the defense of our nation. In a video I posted there were over 30 blatant lies told of things that never happened, and backtracking on stands on just about everything.

Perhaps it is necessary to reconsider things once you are in office - because one has to think on their feet and deal with what is happening and things happen. But not while you are campaigning and tell huge lies to the American people.

My fear when President Trump took office, he would not be able to follow through on making America Great. So far he is trying and has had at least more successes than the last president at changing anything except for a health care plan that was a total disaster.

The press never acknowledge Trump's successes. It is likely there would have already been a Russian nuclear mass launch and America would be in ashes had they elected her. That was my fear and I am glad she is not and never will be president.

I can see the socialist media team Zembla is hot on the trail in Netherlands to try and give the socialists something to manage to get rid of Trump in the middle of our crisis in North Korea.

Guess what? If we tracked either the Clinton's or Bush back we could find direct dealing with Osama Bin Laden or oil companies they ran with the Middle East.  How could anyone be a billionaire and never have dealt with someone shoddy?  Highly unlikely.

If people do not wake up, they are going to be looking for cans of edible food in the radioactive waste and fighting the Sons of Anarchy to get them.

Many of those outside the U.S. are not especially fond of Americans - especially these days. Yet it is NATO and an alliance of nuclear defense that protects the U.K. and Europe. Switzerland noted for its tolerance is about to go down in flames with their own immigration problems and ISIS.

Osama did have it right long ago when he said one of the best ways to make America fall was attack their economy and also their unity.

Long ago before our last Pandemic I told someone who did not think there would be one - during it we may wind up arguing under a tree in the midst of desolation and remembering when we had the luxury on AFT to do it.

Very possible.

Yep - there is a total disconnect between what Ryan and his buddies are promising, and what they actually trying to achieve. The GOP's plan is not meant to fulfill Trump's campaign promise of affordable healthcare for everyone - it's just meant to screw over the poor and middle class. Basically anyone that the rich guys pretending to represent us feel is a drain on them.

The ACA on the other hand, was meant to wrest control of healthcare from the bean-counters, CEOs and wealthy shareholders, and as the name suggested, make it affordable. It certainly wasn't the best they could have come up with, but when you have an opposition party openly proclaiming from day one that they would make Obama a one term president and obstruct everything he tried to do, it's surprising anything happened. Personally, I'd love to see a well crafted single payer system in place.

But hey, no big deal, right? It's not like losing access to healthcare ever killed anyone...

Nearly 700 vacancies at CDC because of Trump administration’s hiring freeze

Nearly 700 positions are vacant at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention because of a continuing freeze on hiring that officials and researchers say affects programs supporting local and state public health emergency readiness, infectious disease control and chronic disease prevention.

The same restriction remains in place throughout the Health and Human Services Department despite the lifting of a government-wide hiring freeze last month. At the National Institutes of Health, staff say clinical work, patient care and recruitment are suffering.

Like HHS, the State Department and the Environmental Protection Agency have maintained the freeze as a way of reducing their workforces and reshaping organizational structures after a directive last month from the Office of Management and Budget that said all federal agencies must submit a plan by June 30 to shrink their civilian workforces. HHS, State and EPA also face significant cuts in the Trump administration’s budget proposal for the fiscal year starting Oct. 1. The administration, which unveiled a “skinny budget” for fiscal 2018 in March, is scheduled to release its full budget next week.

A senior CDC official said unfilled positions include dozens of budget analysts and public health policy analysts, scientists and advisers who provide key administrative support. Their duties include tracking federal contracts awarded to state and local health departments and ensuring that lab scientists have the equipment they need.

Though HHS has exempted many positions from the freeze, including physicians and personnel who respond to cybersecurity and public health emergencies, many support personnel who often play critical roles have been affected.

“It’s all the operational details,” said the official, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because CDC staff are not permitted to comment publicly without approval from HHS. The situation has been made worse, the official said, because the agency has been operating without a permanent director since Tom Frieden stepped down in January. That job is considered one of the most crucial public health positions in the government given the CDC's role in tracking and stopping infectious disease outbreaks in the United States and worldwide.

When HHS Secretary Tom Price visited the Atlanta-based agency in April, the former Georgia lawmaker called CDC “an absolute jewel to our nation,” adding that its location in his home town “makes it extra special.” In a meeting with senior leaders, Price promised to name a director within the month.

But at least 125 job categories have been blocked from being filled, according to a recently released CDC document. Each covers multiple people. The document was released through a Freedom of Information Act request by the Sierra Club and reviewed by The Washington Post. Many of the unfilled jobs are high-level positions, at least GS-12 and above, according to the document.

Several positions are in the Office of Public Health Preparedness and Response, which regulates some of the world's most dangerous bacteria and viruses and manages the nation's stockpile of emergency medical countermeasures. Others include positions in the director's office, infectious disease offices and the office for noncommunicable diseases, injury and environmental health.

The hiring freeze, imposed by an executive order that President Trump signed Jan. 22, covers currently open positions, prevents new positions from being created and blocks lateral transfers, officials said.

The Sierra Club's public health policy director, Liz Perera, said the administration’s “thoughtless freeze on hiring public servants prevented the CDC from filling critical roles at programs essential to preventing chronic and infectious diseases, advancing immunization and safeguarding environmental health.”

An HHS spokeswoman referred questions about the freeze to a May 2 speech by Price, who asked managers to review the efficiency of operations and draft plans to reduce staff. The budget process should be viewed as a way to “reimagine how we can do the work that we do and how we can do it better,” he told employees.

“We’re not looking to achieve an arbitrary financial goal or workforce numbers,” Price said. “We’re certainly not gunning for specific programs or agencies.”

It’s unclear how many positions have been affected across HHS. At NIH, hiring is permitted for “essential patient care staff vacancies,” but reassignments are not allowed and contractors cannot be used for full-time duties, according to an internal NIH memo last month.

Some support positions, such as program assistants and laboratory assistants, remain vacant. Many of those personnel log in or handle patient specimens and issue reports, jobs that directly affect patient care, said a senior physician at the National Cancer Institute who spoke on the condition of anonymity for fear of funding retaliation.

One such assistant who worked for the physician left late last year, but the institute has been unable to replace her because the human resources department “was overwhelmed by the demand and could not process recruiting actions,” the clinician said.

Recruitment for a senior laboratory position also has been held up “since it's complicated to get exceptions granted,” the doctor said.

Trump budget seeks huge cuts to science and medical research and disease prevention

President Trump's 2018 budget request, delivered to Congress Tuesday with the title "A New Foundation for American Greatness," has roiled the medical and science community with a call for massive cuts in spending on scientific research, medical research, disease prevention programs and health insurance for children of the working poor.

The National Cancer Institute would be hit with a $1 billion cut compared to its 2017 budget. The National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute would see a $575 million cut, and the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases would see a reduction of $838 million. The administration would cut the overall National Institutes of Health budget from $31.8 billion to $26 billion.

The National Science Foundation, which dispenses grants to a variety of scientific research endeavors, would be trimmed $776 million, an 11 percent cut. NSF had not been mentioned in Trump's budget outline released in March. The new, full budget echoes the earlier one in calling for the elimination of a number of research-related programs, such as the Department of Energy's Advanced Research Project Agency - Energy (ARPA-E).

The proposed cuts to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention drew an unusually sharp rebuke from former CDC director Tom Frieden, who went on Twitter to describe the administration's CDC request as "unsafe at any level of enactment. Would increase illness, death, risks to Americans, and health care costs."

In a separate tweet, Frieden listed what he sees as the dire ramifications of the Trump proposal, saying, for starters, that it "Devastates programs that protect Americans from cancer, diabetes, heart attacks, strokes and other deadly and expensive conditions."

Steven Hauser, president of the American Heart Association, called Trump's budget "devastating" and "unconscionable." He urged Congress to boost funding for NIH by $2 billion rather than cut it by nearly $6 billion.

Rush Holt, CEO of the American Association for the Advancement of Science, said the Trump budget is short-sighted, particularly in assuming that economic growth won't be hampered by cuts in government-funded research.



"There's this rosy optimism that somehow growth will magically occur, and yet it cuts the principle source of that growth," Holt said. The proposal "savages research. Economists are clear: That’s where we ultimately get our economic growth.”

The full budget document was scheduled to be released Tuesday morning, but the administration inadvertently posted the section dealing with the Department of Health and Human Services late Monday afternoon.

Slashing programs that normally have enjoyed bipartisan support is part of the Trump administration's effort to trim trillions of dollars in spending over the next decade while at the same time paying for tax cuts and increases in military spending.

Trump's Office of Management and Budget produced the “skinny budget” in March, and that document delivered a number of surprises, including a call to cut nearly one-fifth of National Institutes of Health budget and nearly one-third of the Environmental Protection Agency funding.

Lawmakers appeared to ignore that budget request entirely when putting together a spending plan for the rest of fiscal 2017, which runs through September. Much of that spending plan had been in the works before the November election.

Congress has the power of the purse and could essentially ignore the more detailed budget request. Early reactions on both sides of the aisle have been unfavorable. One Republican lawmaker, Rep. Tom Cole of Oklahoma, flinched at the thought of cutting NIH and such programs as Meals on Wheels. Rep. Mark Meadows (R-N.C.), head of the ultra-conservative Freedom Caucus, said of Meals on Wheels, “I’ve delivered meals to a lot of people that perhaps it’s their only hot meal of the day."

But the document posted late Monday shows that blow-back from that earlier budget request did not dissuade the administration from its strategy of cutting nonmilitary discretionary spending to pay for tax cuts and a boost in the Pentagon budget.

Among key health-care changes:

Planned Parenthood would be barred from receiving any HHS funding, according to a fact sheet accompanying the budget release – a prohibition that would apply not just to Medicaid but to all programs. The fact sheet notes that this move “follows through on a campaign promise” to block federal dollars from “certain entities that provide abortions, including Planned Parenthood.”

Funding for the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) would be slashed by at least 20 percent for the next two fiscal years. According to the budget document, the administrator favors a renewal of CHIP, a program created 20 years ago for the children of lower-working class families and which currently insures 5.6 million children.

The spending plan would, however, eliminate an element of the Affordable Care Act that increased by 23 percent the portion of the program’s costs that is paid for with federal money, leaving states to shoulder a larger share. It would also for the first time essentially limit states’ eligibility levels to qualify, saying that the government would no longer help cover children from families with incomes of more than 250 percent of the federal poverty level. Currently, 18 states plus the District of Columbia allow families with incomes higher than 300 percent of the poverty line to sign up their children for CHIP, according to data from the Kaiser Family Foundation.

The Trump budget asks for cuts to several key programs at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, which responds to disease outbreaks in the United States and around the world, makes sure food and water are safe, and helps people avoid heart disease, cancer, stroke and other leading causes of death.

The president's budget seeks an $82 million cut at the center that works on vaccine-preventable and respiratory diseases, such as influenza and measles. It proposes a cut of $186 million from programs at CDC’s center on HIV/AIDS, viral hepatitis, sexually transmitted infections and tuberculosis prevention. One of the biggest cuts, $222 million, is to the agency’s chronic disease prevention programs, which are designed to help people prevent diabetes, heart disease and stroke, and obesity.

Some of those funds are being channeled into a new $500 million block grant program to states and territories to focus on “leading chronic disease challenges specific to each state.” Critics have said block grants allow states to plug holes in their budgets, without accountability that federal programs require.

The agency’s center on birth defects and developmental disabilities also gets a 26 percent cut to its budget at a time when researchers have yet to understand the full consequences of Zika infections in pregnant women and their babies.

The budget calls for a 17 percent cut to CDC’s global health programs that monitor and respond to disease outbreaks around the world. It also cuts about 10 percent from CDC’s office of public health preparedness and response.

The budget document highlights $35 million that the CDC spends on childhood lead poisoning prevention. But the overall spending on environmental health would under Trump's plan be cut by $60 million, down to $157 million, according the document.

Trump administration officials have also proposed the establishment of an Emergency Response Fund to respond quickly to emerging public health threats. In the wake of the Ebola and Zika epidemics, U.S. officials have repeatedly called for the need for such a fund. The budget does not provide a specific amount. It says HHS would have “department-wide transfer authority to support the Fund in the case of a natural or man-made disaster or threat.” The fund would be available to receive a transfer of up to one percent of any HHS account, without any limitation on the total, for use in emergency preparedness and response.

The Food and Drug Administration would see a cut from $2.74 billion to $1.89 billion. User fees paid by manufacturers of drugs, devices and other products would be increased by close to $1 billion to pay for product reviews.

Republican Sen. Lamar Alexander of Tennessee, the chairman of the health committee, has said he does not want to reopen negotiations with the industry over fees that it pays to support FDA activities, as the Trump administration has previously suggested. His committee recently approved legislation that ignores the administration request.

Here's a great article about the Wahhabists and Trump: 

The United States has now signed up for Saudi Arabia’s foreign policy — a relentless series of battles against Shiites and their allies throughout the Middle East. That will enmesh Washington in a never-ending sectarian struggle, fuel regional instability and complicate its ties with countries such as Iraq that want good relations with both sides. But most important, it will do nothing to address the direct and ongoing threat to Americans — jihadist terrorism. I thought that Trump’s foreign policy was going to put America first, not Saudi Arabia.
