'This Is Our Vision'
President Trump Just Addressed Congress For The First Time. Here's What He Said.



President Trump addressed Congress for the first time Tuesday night. As the president began his speech, he acknowledged Black History Month and rebuked anti-Semitic threats.

“Tonight, as we mark the conclusion of our celebration of Black History Month, we are reminded of our nation’s path toward civil rights and the work that still remains to be done,” Trump began. “Recent threats targeting Jewish community centers and vandalism of Jewish cemeteries, as well as last week’s shooting in Kansas City, remind us that while we may be a nation divided on policies, we are a country that stands united in condemni

Yet in reality, we are seeing the highest numbers of newly created hate group since Trump announced his candidacy, did nothing to mention the crimes against Jewish citizen until Democrat cornered him on his lack thereof, stated that a Black leader is doing a great job, the only problem, said Black leader,has been dead for one hundred years, gave the coal mines permission to pollute the air once again, told banks that we'll turn a blind eye to your former policies which destroyed people's credit, lost their personal savings and investments and the country's economy, yes in reality, we'll see pre civil rights era discrimination, with no healthcare. Lied about the jobless numbers due to the fact the 80% of those unemployed are retired, in school and on Social Security. Yes the smart voters are seeing a "vision" 2009 all over again. Now with that said, watch how Trump leaves his teleprompter and return to free style caustic rhetoric.

Ask the GOP what business dealings do Trump have, that can be ascertained by the release of his personal income taxes, ask Trump why would he encourage a Russian leader to hack an American candidate yet cry like a sore loser when he is hacked? Just a few question intelligent inquiring minds want to know.

Media left and right give Trump's speech thumbs up
By Joe Concha - 02/28/17


MSNBC's Rachel Maddow said the speech would be "well-received."

"This will be a very well-received speech for Donald Turmp," remarked Maddow, the network's highest-rated host. "I think it's fair to say it's a product of expectations that he's not seen as somebody who necessarily gives a good formal speech."

Thank you Bernie!

The bar is set so low for Trump that if he doesn't come off sounding like the next Mussolini he'll receive some props. No doubt he'll be back in dictatorial mode as soon as the formal setting of Congress is out his short-term memory and falls back into his cherished Twitter zone.


"Keep Showing Up": After Trump's Address, Sanders Urges Continued Resistance
In response to president's first speech to Congress, senator calls out things he failed to mention—from climate change to voting rights


by Nadia Prupis, staff writer
Common Dreams

March 01, 2017

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) recorded a response to President Donald Trump's first address to Congress on Tuesday night, breaking down the speech's biggest takeaways—or lack thereof—and calling on viewers to keep up the resistance.

"Sometimes, what is more important is what somebody does not say, as opposed to what they actually say," Sanders said in a Facebook live video recorded immediately after the speech. "Some examples: at a time when over half of older Americans have no retirement savings, I did not hear President Trump say one word, not one word, about Social Security or Medicare," despite it being a cornerstone of his election campaign.

"Furthermore," Sanders continued, "not only did President Trump not mention the issue of voter suppression, what Republican governors are doing all over this country to make it harder for people to participate in our democracy, but the truth of the matter is, his administration is now working overtime with Republican governors to make it harder for young people, low-income people, senior citizens, and people of color to vote."

He also slammed Trump's failure to mention climate change, mass incarceration, student debt, and the U.S. Supreme Court's Citizens United ruling, among other issues.

All this means people resisting the president's agenda will be crucial in the coming months, he said, praising those who have gotten involved with various efforts—such as packing town hall meetings and asking hard questions of their representatives—and urging those who have not yet joined to do so.

"Those of you who attended rallies or town hall meetings: Keep showing up, keep calling Congress, and continue to fight," he said. "If you haven't taken action yet, we need your voice. Only together when millions of people stand up for economic justice, for social justice, for racial justice, for environmental justice, only then can we create a political revolution that will turn this country around."

Trump Reportedly Furious over Sessions’ Recusal, Russia Stories, and ‘Everyone Thinking His Presidency Is Screwed Up’
By Chas Danner



President Trump reportedly went “ballistic” on his senior staff Friday, venting his frustration over Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ recusal of himself from investigations related to the Trump campaign’s potential ties to Russia, as well as over the general onslaught of news stories pertaining to those ties. According to leaks via unnamed White House officials to ABC News and others, Trump apparently feels that Sessions’ sudden recusal was uncalled for and only encouraged the administration’s enemies. A Politico source explained that Trump didn’t like Sessions’ recusal because it made it seem like the attorney general, and thus the Trump team, had done something wrong. A source also added that Trump is “tired of everyone thinking his presidency is screwed up,” and told his staff that he expects them to do a better job fighting back.

One senior White House official summarized to ABC that, “We should have had a good week. We should have had a good weekend. But once again, back to Russia.”

Following the Friday meeting, White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus and Chief Strategist Steve Bannon canceled their plans to go with Trump to the president’s Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida, though it’s not clear whose idea that was, and it appears that Bannon eventually left for Florida on Saturday afternoon anyway. Trump’s senior advisor Jared Kushner, the president’s daughter Ivanka, White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer, communications director Mike Dubke, and White House counsel Don McGahn were also in attendance on Friday.

If the takeaway of the meeting was to fight back, Trump may have been trying a new tactic himself on Saturday when he claimed, in an evidence-free early-morning Twitter rant, that President Obama had ordered wiretaps of Trump Tower before the election. Obama’s spokesperson has categorically denied Trump’s new claim, which seems likely to have been based on a new right-wing conspiracy theory that White House staffers were circulating on Friday.

So true Timbo, I'm reminded of a fable repeated for years at Willard state hospital, that some of the patients were fairly normal as children but due to misdiagnosis, economic depression causing parents not being able to support their children financially, these children were place in the institute. It's very apparent that either the Republicans are big liars or insanity has affected the masses of Conservatives on Capitol Hill who called Trump incapable of leading this country. Now the same liars insists that he's a great leader but the world is still confused as to what one singular event reveals a fine tuned administration or presidential quality individual. Realistically so, this man being 70 years old is incapable of changing for the better due to his lifetime of privileges and failed attempts at curving in his adolescent indiscretions.

Trump spokesmen said if this is true this is the largest abuse of power we have ever seen. Therefore, if it is not true,we have such a total liar as president that he should resign! RIGHT?

http://abcnews.go.com/Politics/week-tran...ory?id=45911284

SANDERS: Look, I think he's made very clear what he believes. And he's asking that we get down to the bottom of this. Let's get the truth here. Let's find out. I think the bigger story isn't who reported it, but is it true? And I think the American people have a right to know if this happened, because if it did, again this is the largest abuse of power that I think we is have ever seen.

RADDATZ: OK. Let me just say one more time. The president said, I bet a good lawyer could make a great case out of the fact that President Obama was tapping my phones in October. So the president believes it is true?

SANDERS: I would say that his tweet speaks for itself there.

Worse means Trump should resign. I think even many Republican members of congress believe this now but don't dare be the first to say it.

http://www.politico.com/story/2017/03/trump-fbi-james-comey-jeff-sessions-adam-schiff-235722

Schiff’s intelligence panel is conducting a wide-ranging investigation into Russia’s meddling in the 2016 presidential election, including whether there was any collusion between Russia and the Trump campaign.

The California Democrat also said on Twitter Monday, “We must accept possibility that @POTUS does not know fact from fiction, right from wrong. That wild claims are not strategic, but worse.”

Somebody just posted this online:

"So basically Trump is asking congress to investigate the basis for his own tweet."

I hadn't thought about it that way! That is amazing.

My anger is based on the fact that we have lost any sense normalcy and must deal with a ignorant lying president on a daily basis. Teonan presented a very important fact that we are honoring our Women today but lies from the WH dominates the news once again while deflecting from anything else.

I just heard this on TV:

Reporter: Is Mexico going to pay for the wall?

Mitch McConnel one word answer with his usual shit-eating grin: No.

YOU CAN'T BELIEVE A DAMN THING TRUMP SAYS FOR GOD SAKE. HOW THE HELL DOES HE STILL HAVE SUPPORTERS?

http://www.politico.com/story/2017/03/mexico-pays-for-border-wall-mitch-mcconnell-reacts-235865

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell on Thursday threw cold water on President Donald Trump’s insistence that Mexico will pay for his proposed border wall.

“Uh, no,” McConnell said flatly, asked whether he thinks Mexico will foot the bill in an interview with POLITICO Playbook’s Jake Sherman and Anna Palmer.

If constructed, a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border is expected, by some estimates, to cost $14 billion, if not much more. Even many Republicans are skeptical of the proposal because of the cost, and its biggest critics argue that it's unnecessary in addition to expensive.

Mexico's president has made clear that the country has no intention of paying for Trump’s wall, though Trump has refused so far to accept that. The tiff over the border wall question and Trump’s hard-line stance on immigration more broadly created a rift between him and Mexico in the first days of his presidency.
