Andrew Cuomo’s Boondocks Boondoggle
by KYLE SMITH September 7, 2017

New York State is going to help build a comedy museum in a remote upstate town. No matter how awful a comedy club may be, you will scarcely find any lackluster Laff Lair or cheerless Chuckle Factory that charges $10 million for its two-drink minimum. Yet in a wacky scheme that could have been devised by Seinfeld’s buddy Kramer, that is exactly what Andrew Cuomo is proposing to charge you, New York State taxpayer, for a dismal comedy venture you’ll likely never set foot in, or even near. To mark the end of summer, New York’s governor is barbecuing $10 million in public funding as the state’s contribution toward construction of a comedy museum in Jamestown, N.Y. Jamestown? It’s a place of “empty storefronts and underused buildings,” according to the New York Times. It’s three hours west of Ithaca. Three hours north of Pittsburgh. Six and a half hours northwest of Manhattan. Home to some 31,000 souls, it doesn’t exactly scream “arts capital.” There’s a reason the most popular museums tend to be concentrated in cities rather than scattered randomly in rural areas, hamlets, and deserted islands: One museum, especially one small museum, isn’t usually enough to make tourists to go much out of their way. Especially a museum that proposes to offer stuff few want to see in the first place. Jamestown is on the comedy map, barely, because Lucille Ball grew up there. Since Lucy is hardly known to anyone under 45, and her brand of comedy (incessant mugging and slapstick) went out of style in the Nixon administration, her memory isn’t fertile ground in which to grow tourism. Nevertheless, in her honor there is a small museum, as well as an annual four-day comedy festival in August named after her. Headliners this year included Kevin James, Lisa Lampanelli, and Jim Gaffigan. The town hopes to build comedy’s Mecca from the existing museum, proposing a $50 million, 37,000-square-foot National Comedy Center that will house various artifacts and an exhibition featuring holograms of comedians. Does that tempt you to get in the car and head out for a six-plus-hour drive, East Coasters? “I believe this is going to be a national attraction,” Cuomo said last month. Let’s look at what else he believes: He avers that the project could create “scores” of jobs, according to the New York Times. Wow, scores? As in, maybe 40? Most of them presumably in such areas as custodial work, gift-shop attendant, and ticket-sales clerk, with a handful of cushy “curator” gigs steered toward reducing by two or three society’s surplus of holders of Ph.D.s in “culture studies”? If 40 jobs result, that’s $250,000 Cuomo is spending per job. Hurricane Irma downgraded as it approaches Florida 00:18 00:40 Powered by Backers say the $50 million museum will make a profit if it can draw 114,000 visitors per year paying $18 to $20 each — almost as much as you’d pay to enter the Museum of Modern Art or the Metropolitan Museum of Art, each of which is $25 and has the good sense to be located in a place where lots of people actually live. If a comedy museum is such a slam-bang idea, though, why isn’t Wall Street rushing in to earn a nice profit? And even if it did make sense, wouldn’t it be wiser to place it in a city that already has lots of other attractions? True, Lucille Ball isn’t from New York City, but a few other comics are: Seinfeld, George Carlin, Adam Sandler, Eddie Murphy, Chris Rock etc., etc. About 300,000 people a year visit the less out-of-the-way Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, N.Y. (four hours from Boston or New York), and it seems unlikely that the comedy museum will soon build up anywhere near as much lore as that palace of hero worship, notwithstanding that the comedy curators have already acquired such artifacts as Carlin’s handwritten jokes. Comedians, for a start, aren’t gods. Their success consists not in thunderous, awe-inspiring impossibilities like smacking a ball into orbit but in puzzling over the quotidian, calling up our ordinary frustrations. Louis C.K. speaks about the hassles of boarding an airplane, and we say, “I’ve been there.” Hanging out with Conan O’Brien might be fun. But who wants to touch the hem of his garment? Cuomo’s comedy boondoggle is just the latest in a long series of desperate moves to conjure up jobs of dubious sustainability using bales of taxpayer money. Cuomo’s comedy boondoggle is just the latest in a long series of desperate moves to conjure up jobs of dubious sustainability using bales of taxpayer money. Among his previous bets were $600 million to build a factory for an Austrian chip maker that bailed on the deal; $15 million for a film-production facility in Central New York that today stands empty; a tax break called Start-Up New York that has been credited with creating 408 jobs but spent $53 million on TV commercials alone; and a $750 million handout to billionaire Elon Musk’s money-losing panel manufacturer SolarCity for a forthcoming factory that supposedly will eventually create 5,000 jobs — at $150,000 for each of them. As each of these projects goes up in flames, an unchastened and perhaps unchastenable Cuomo dreams up more of them. –– ADVERTISEMENT –– If Cuomo wanted to deliver real jobs for depressed areas of New York, he’d simply step out of the way of industries that wish to harvest the state’s natural bounty: Jamestown sits atop the Marcellus Shale, a natural wonder that bestrides western New York and Pennsylvania and is estimated to employ some 30,000 workers in the latter state, which also counts another 60,000 jobs supported by the industry. Natural gas is helping to drive dirtier coal out of business, and fracking, which Cuomo stupidly banned in New York, is so safe that even President Obama did little to impede its growth. Marcellus Shale gas production increased by nearly 1,000 percent during his presidency. These are real jobs, by the way, not ones that involve tearing tickets: Average annual pay in the Pennsylvania oil and gas industry was $83,000 a year in 2012, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, compared to Pennsylvania’s annual average wage of $48,000 a year. Yet for Andrew Cuomo, it’s entirely fitting that he is ignoring the vast potential industry right under his feet and instead wasting public money on a comedy museum: The governor’s economic policy is a running joke.

To answer your question, yes I worry about Trump and here is why:

Democrats in Congress to explore creating an expert panel on Trump’s mental health

By Sharon Begley @sxbegle

Three congressional Democrats have asked a psychiatrist at Yale School of Medicine to consult with them about forming an expert panel to offer the legislators advice on assessing President Trump’s mental health.

Yale’s Dr. Bandy Lee told STAT that over the last few weeks members of Congress or their staff have asked her to discuss how members might convene psychiatrists, psychologists, and other mental health professionals “to review the president’s mental health, and review it on a periodic basis.” The closed meeting is expected to take place in September, she said.

Has any other president ever received such scrutiny before? No because we have never had a president before who health professionals thought was nuts.

Trump will end up just like Nixon.

http://www.politico.com/magazine/story/2017/09/09/donald-trump-jr-russia-swamp-diary-215589?lo=ap_a1

Washington Post columnist Anne Applebaum theorized late in the week that the table has now been set with all the elements to prove Trump-Russia collusion. Motive: Russia sought to disrupt the election and roll back the Magnitsky Act. Dupes: Donald Trump, who has long curried Putin’s favor, and other aspiring Russophiles in his orbit (Junior, Flynn, Kushner, Manafort, et al.). Methods: Russian Internet operatives hacked the DNC’s and John Podesta’s emails and released them to the public to destabilize Clinton and the Democrats. Other trolls injected disinformation into the campaign stream. “How did Trump happen to use the same conspiracy theories that were proliferating on Russian media, both real and fake?” Applebaum asks. Coincidence or coordination?

Like June 17, 1972, the date of the Watergate break-in, Junior’s June 9, 2016, Trump Tower meeting has become the load-bearing date upon which the greater scandal rests. It may not turn out to be the most revelatory of all the Trump Tower shockers, but like the break-in it tells our story in miniature. Get to know its details. In the coming months, you’ll be reliving it again and again and again.

It's finally dawned on Trump how much people 'hate' him — and he's pivoting to a new strategy

President Donald Trump is adopting a new approach to governing after a rocky start to his term.

One adviser told Axios' Mike Allen that after seven months in office, the president finally realized, "people really f---ing hate me."

Trump's decision this week to work with House minority leader, Nancy Pelosi, and Senate minority leader, Chuck Schumer, may signal that he's open to pivoting to a different strategy after hovering at record low levels of popularity during his first seven months in office: working across the aisle.

Cuomo’s Excelsior scholarships starting to look like Excelsi-oops
By Post Editorial Board September 10, 2017 | 10:35pm


It looks like thousands of New York students who qualify for Gov. Cuomo’s Excelsior Scholarship will actually wind up paying higher tuition this year. Guess that “appeal to Bernie Sanders voters” stuff is harder than it looks.

The Excelsior grants aim to make public colleges tuition-free for students whose families make $100,000 or less a year (and under $125,000 by 2019). But, for obvious reasons, they won’t go to those who already pay no tuition thanks to other grants — which is actually most of those who’d qualify.

Thing is, the SUNY Board of Trustees over the summer quietly voted to raise tuition by $200 for all students who don’t get Excelsior help.

As the Albany Student Press reports, fewer than 900 of the 13,000-plus students at SUNY’s UAlbany are set to receive the new scholarship. That leaves about 94 percent of the kids paying more — including many with family incomes below Cuomo’s cutoff who’ll have that much less left from their aid package to cover non-tuition expenses. And similar math will apply at every other SUNY campus.

This is the plan Sanders lauded as a “revolutionary idea” that will “reverberate not only throughout the state of New York, but throughout this country.”
Well, maybe not in quite the way that Cuomo planned.

That $200 hike is the most the board can inflict in a single year, and only by declaring an emergency — in this case, because of rising costs. Maybe the governor needs to focus more on SUNY’s overall finances and less on delivering Bernie’s “free college” dream?

Yes. I worry about Trump a lot. One commentator on TV this morning said if her 10 year old son did something like this he would be reprimanded. The immaturity of our current POTUS is appalling. We are the laughing stock of the world for electing this man with the unstable mind.

Trump retweets GIF of him hitting Clinton with golf ball

By Jeremy Diamond, CNN

Updated 1:06 PM ET, Sun September 17, 2017

President Donald Trump retweeted an edited video Sunday morning that showed him swinging a golf club and appearing to hit his former presidential campaign rival Hillary Clinton with a golf ball.

The animated GIF image Trump retweeted spliced together footage of Trump taking a swing on a golf course with footage of Clinton tripping and falling as she boarded a plane in 2011 as secretary of state. The footage is edited to make it appear as though Clinton is hit in the back with a golf ball before her fall.

May 19, 2017 at 4:13 PM

Earlier this week, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein named former FBI director Robert Mueller as special counsel to oversee the Justice Department’s ongoing investigation into the Trump campaign’s potential ties to Russia.

The history of special counsels is long, fraught and entangled with some of the country’s most infamous political scandals. So FiveThirtyEight turned to an academic expert in the history of — what else? — political scandals for some perspective on what Mueller’s appointment means for the coming weeks and months.

Brandon Rottinghaus, a political scientist at the University of Houston, cautioned that while the appointment of a special counsel is indeed a turning point in any investigation, the path forward (including to impeachment) is far from clear. History shows that these investigations can take years and often prove inconclusive.

If the election were held today Clinton would win in a landslide with Trumps approval rating in the 30's.

Why does he have time to do this when 3 million American citizens are suffering greatly from a hurricane in Puerto Rico? Someone pointed out that this will be his Katrina.

When things are going badly for presidents domestically they have been known to start wars to divert attention from their domestic troubles. This is very scary when the other side has nuclear weapons and the capability to kill millions of people in the first day of the war.

Once again the liberal hypocrisy raises its ugly head. No Criticism of Obama when he did the same thing. Or maybe they knew he did not mean what he said and was only doing it to score political points. After-all Obama would never go against the rich elite, that was his bread and butter.

Yes it is part of history. It belongs in a museum. It has always been a problem carried in marches since the civil war by white supremacists shouting slogans of hate against non-whites and Jews.

Yes, and history also reminds us that the south lost the war and the right to maintain a slave industry for which the south futilely attempted to secede.

To suggest that it "wasn't a problem" is not only an idiotic comment on the surface, but cuts straight down to the bone.

https://www.yahoo.com/tv/hannity-trump-nfl-fox-news-hillary-134922173.html

This morning, I’m taking a knee in a not-silent protest over Fox News’s new primetime lineup. On Monday night, Fox rolled out a new attempt to stabilize its wobbling, increasingly directionless schedule. The Five was relocated back from whence it came: 5 p.m., where its core demo can watch it while gnawing at an Early Bird Special dinner. Into its 9 p.m. time period slides Hannity — making room, later this month, for the debut of Laura Ingraham’s promised hour, during which she will perform that trick she does: ascribing profound meaning to President Trump’s Twitter tantrums.

Sean Hannity began his new time-period show on Monday by saying he was going to make two “huge announcements” — surprises he was saving until the final moments of the show. Spoiler alert: Bill O’Reilly will be a guest on Tuesday’s Hannity, and Rush Limbaugh will be interviewed on Thursday. In case you’re running low on vomit bags, I wanted to warn you well in advance.

I watched this this morning. Wow

https://www.yahoo.com/entertainment/morning-joe-rips-trump-attacks-john-mccain-no-140422271.html

Mornine Joe” host Joe Scarborough on Tuesday ripped President Donald Trump and other critics of “dying” Sen. John McCain, the Arizona Republican who last week announced his opposition to the latest effort to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act.

“You have no humanity if a man is dying and your using him for political punchlines on talk radio and also to audiences in Alabama,” Scarborough said of Trump, who has voiced criticism of the senator, who was recently diagnosed with brain cancer.

The MSNBC host called people who “boo” McCain “ignorant,” and asked them to “show a little respect” for the U.S. Navy veteran and former prisoner of war in Vietnam.

Scarborough also found it disturbing that others would attack someone who is fighting cancer.

“By the way, for the people at home. If you’re in the audience, and John McCain is getting attacked, and he’s fighting for his life, unless you were raised in a barn, keep your mouth shut, all right?” Scarborough said, sobering the mood of the show. “Show a little respect. Show a little dignity. Show a little class.”

Scarborough asked who raised “these people,” saying he grew up in the same situations that they did.

“I guarantee I was raised in the same region. In the same socioeconomic background, going to the same Southern Baptist churches, going to the same public schools, going to the same public colleges, state schools these people went to,” Scarborough said.

“So I ask, Who raised these people? Who have they become, that they would boo a man who is fighting for his very life and has served his country in uniform, who was a prisoner of war?”

“”You should keep your mouth shut, and you should go home, and you should talk to your children, and you should tell the story of John McCain to your children,” Scarborough said, explaining that McCain had the choice to be released from prison in Vietnam, but refused until his fellow service members could be released with him. “A man who served his country in uniform when he could have done what Donald Trump did. He could have avoided the draft.”

That was an apparent reference to Trump, who got repeated deferrals to avoid military service in Vietnam.

Donald Trump is Back to Being the Least Popular President Ever After NFL Tweets

Chris Riotta,Newsweek 5 hours ago

President Donald Trump's popularity among American voters is once again in decline, falling back to the historic lows that have marked the first eight months of his White House tenure.

The president’s approval rating hovers at 38.8 percent, according to a weighted average the polling site FiveThirtyEight released Wednesday morning. That total reflects a dip among several daily tracking polls, including from CBS News (35 percent), Gallup (39 percent), and Trump's favorite (and more favorable) right wing polling site, Rasmussen Reports (43 percent).

The decline appears to have started during the weekend, when Trump sparked controversy over his use of Twitter to condemn protests within the NFL against police brutality and racial inequality during televised national anthems at the beginnings of games.

It is the same truth printed over and over but you don't seem to understand so we have to keep trying.

The dump and blue green algae are environmental problems made worse by a president who could care less about the environment.

Trump Is Making Canada Great Again

While America closes its borders, its northern neighbor is poaching some of the best tech talent in the world.

By RICHARD FLORIDA and JOSHUA GANS October 01, 2017

It’s no secret that the United States has long dominated cutting-edge technologies, from personal computers and biotech to smartphones and social media. One big reason: America’s track record of attracting global talent, like the Scottish-born steel magnate Andrew Carnegie or the Hungarian-born Andrew Grove, a pioneer in the semiconductor industry, or, more recently, Google’s Sergey Brin—and many other entrepreneurs in between and afterward.

But that edge may be disappearing thanks to the new president. Just eight months into office, President Donald Trump has moved to cut legal immigration by half over the next decade, increase security along the border, build a wall with Mexico, ban travel indefinitely from several countries and overturn DACA, the Obama-era policy that grants work permits to undocumented immigrants who arrived in the country as minors. The Trump administration has also suggested limiting “startup visas” for high-tech entrepreneurs entering the United States, and massively cutting America’s funding for scientific research. Trump’s aggressive “America first” posture on trade and international diplomacy has transformed the United States into something of a pariah nation, out of touch with the basic norms and values of advanced democracies.

Yup we should be far more worried about Coumo. He is just an idiot.


Gov. Cuomo's Transgender Travel Ban Forces U-Albany Football to Sleep 70 Miles Away from its Opponent

New York Democratic Governor Andrew Cuomo’s executive order banning non-essential travel by state employees to North Carolina in response to the state's stance on transgender issues has forced the University of Albany’s varsity football team to sleep over 70 miles out of the state prior to its Saturday game, reports the Times Union.

On Saturday, the U-Albany Great Danes are ranked 19th in Division 1 FCS and are playing the 23rd ranked Elon Phoenix football team of Elon, North Carolina. As if a game on the road against a conference opponent was not challenging enough, the Danes are forced to sleep outside of the state of North Carolina because of the state’s former stance against transgender individual’s using the bathroom of their choice.

In 2016, North Carolina passed and signed into law a bill that required individuals to use the bathroom of their biological sex at birth, not the sex they identified by. In response, NY Gov. Andrew Cuomo placed a travel ban for state employees and barred any use of state funds in the Tar Heel State.

Despite North Carolina repealing their original transgender bill and allowing transgender individuals to use the bathroom of their choice in March 2017, Gov. Cuomo still kept his executive order travel ban in place.

Because of that, the Great Danes are staying at a hotel in South Boston, VA, which adds nearly an hour and half to their commute. The team, to their credit, is taking the distance in stride saying it will not affect their game today, which kicked off today at 2:00 pm.

"All I know is that it's going to be an interesting weekend, but we're not going to let it faze us," redshirt sophomore quarterback Will Brunson said.

"It's definitely not beneficial," U-Albany senior fullback-tight end Anthony Manzo-Lewis said. Adding, "There's nothing we can do at this point. Suck it up, and that's all we can do."

The National Collegiate Athletics Association temporarily suspended scheduling national sporting events in North Carolina, but re-continued last April after parts of the 2016 transgender bill were repealed. In 2016, Governor Cuomo's ban forced U-Albany's mens basketball team to cancel their away game against Duke University in Durham, North Carolina.

The governor has made no signs that he is going to lift his travel restriction any time soon.

The number of people without drinking water in Puerto Rico increased by more than 10 percent toward the end of last week, even as President Donald Trump on Sunday was characterizing the hurricane relief efforts as “amazing.”

Fifty-five percent of the island’s residents were reported as not having access to drinking water as of Saturday, up from 44% reported on Wednesday, according to figures from the U.S. Defense Department. Meanwhile, 95 percent of people were without electrical power as of Saturday, the DOD reported.

At a press conference on Sunday morning ― 11 days after Hurricane Maria made landfall on the island ― Puerto Rico Gov. Ricardo Rossello expressed both confidence and frustration over the ongoing relief efforts.

Food and water are getting there, it is increasing, the logistics and the visibilities [of the aid effort] are increasing as well, although as I’ve stated before we recognize that we still need to do much more,” he said.

Rossello went on to discuss the “disadvantage and inequality” that he said his island’s residents have faced for “more than a century” when compared to the U.S. mainland.

“Even after the storm hit Puerto Rico, even when it was evident that it was a disaster in the U.S., only half of our U.S. citizens in the mainland knew that Puerto Ricans were U.S. citizens,” he said.

A poll by Morning Consult found that only 54 percent of Americans were aware of the citizenship status of Puerto Ricans.

He went on to stress the poor health care received by the island’s roughly 3.4 million residents, compared with that available for those on the mainland. He also said that Puerto Rico’s military veterans “don’t get equal treatment,” despite the island having a storied history of military service.

“I invite everybody to reflect on this situation,” he said.

The Republican-led Congress failed to reauthorize the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) over the weekend, spreading uncertainty and panic among some states that funding for the program would dry up and threaten the lives of the nine million U.S. children enrolled in the program.

Lawmakers missed a Sept. 30 deadline to reauthorize the Clinton-era initiative, which provides insurance coverage for kids in families with lower to middle-class incomes at the cost of some $14 billion per year. Because of the way its funding is dispersed, however, money will not run out for most states immediately.

Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) said last week that an “overwhelming number of states have some money to continue to spend” on the program.

“So think that in other words, there’s a few days leeway — there might be a few weeks leeway,” he added. “But I can’t be specific because I don’t know but it’s too bad it’s not done right now

After a cold open that found Alec Baldwin’s Donald Trump royally botching his response to the Puerto Rico hurricane aftermath, Saturday Night Live’s “Weekend Update” anchors came out swinging in the Season 43 premiere.

“Trump says the people of Puerto Rico ‘want everything to be done for them,’” Colin Jost said. “Then he told his caddy to repair his divot and drive him to the next hole. Hey, Trump always said he was going to get things done faster than any other president. And now I believe him. Because it took George W. Bush five years to get his Katrina.”

Michael Che had even harsher words about Trump’s Twitter attacks on San Juan’s mayor, who the president said “was very complimentary only a few days ago” and “has now been told by the Democrats that you must be nasty to Trump.”

Oh really, Donald? You bitch,” Che responded. “Was she nasty to you? How nasty? Are you shaking? Do you want to smoke a Virginia Slim until your hand stops moving?”

“This isn’t a complicated issue, man, it’s hurricane relief,” he continued. “You just did this very same thing for white people, twice. So, tell Melania to put on her flood heels, get some bottled water, some food, pack up some extra Atlanta Falcons Super Bowl T-shirts and write them a check with our money, you cheap cracker!”

“In one month you have mishandled Puerto Rico, DACA, the NFL,” Che concluded. “It’s like when anybody darker than your golf pants has a problem you’re thinking, how can I make this worse?”

There is nothing Alec Baldwin could do to top that.

More GOP senators willing to tell Trump to take a hike

An increasing number of Republicans have nothing to lose in crossing the president and Mitch McConnell — a warning sign for tax reform.


By BURGESS EVERETT and SEUNG MIN KIM

10/04/2017 05:06 AM EDT

There’s a growing faction inside the Senate Republican Conference, and it looks like bad news for Mitch McConnell and Donald Trump: The devil-may-care caucus.

Unbeholden to Republican orthodoxy and freed from the burdens of imminent reelection campaigns, more GOP senators are flexing their independence in the aftermath of the party’s failed effort to repeal Obamacare. Sen. Bob Corker of Tennessee is the latest addition to the ranks. Days after announcing he would not seek reelection in 2018, he threatened to buck Republicans on tax reform and stood by his earlier criticism of Trump as lacking the stability or competence to be president.

Corker joins longtime GOP contrarians John McCain, Lisa Murkowski, Susan Collins and Rand Paul in a group that’s willing to vote principle over party line, even if it means sinking some of the party’s cherished agenda items. Roy Moore might be next: The rabble-rousing conservative is favored to win an open Alabama Senate seat after being bombarded by millions of dollars in McConnell-sanctioned campaign ads.

Other than his litany of limp canned comments, let's not expect an iota of sensibility from this birdbrained manchild. (HarleyTom's schizoid alter ego).

Perfect representative of Trump'a azzhatted base. Keep up the good work Gassy! crazy

Trump's generals are speaking up

Analysis by Barbara Starr, CNN Pentagon Correspondent
Updated 3:22 AM ET, Thu October 5, 2017

It's not organized military opposition to President Donald Trump. But day by day, generals and admirals are publicly stepping up and directly giving the American public their views in ways that don't always match the Twitter rhetoric of their commander in chief.

Nowhere was that made clearer than in the recent video of Air Force Academy superintendent Lt. Gen. Jay Silveria speaking to cadets after racist slurs were posted on message boards of five black cadet candidates at the Air Force Academy Preparatory School: "If you can't treat someone with dignity and respect, then you need to get out. If you can't treat someone from another gender, whether that's a man or a woman, with dignity and respect, then you need to get out. If you demean someone in any way, then you need to get out. And if you can't treat someone from another race or a different color skin with dignity and respect, then you need to get out," the visibly furious general told his troops.

It is beginning to look like some generals plan to keep saying exactly what they think as they exercise the military leadership they believe is fundamental, and if that means contradicting the commander in chief, then so be it. Lt. Gen. Vincent Stewart, one of the nation's most senior intelligence officers, made this sentiment clear in a speech Tuesday: "Never forget who we serve. The Citizens of the United States."

It also alleges that the Russian government has incriminating information on the president that could make him susceptible to blackmail. Notably, it claims that Russia possesses a videotape featuring Trump getting prostitutes to urinate on a bed in a Moscow hotel room in which former President Barack Obama once stayed with first lady Michelle Obama. The allegation has earned the findings the nickname “the pee tape dossier,” or the “golden shower dossier.”

*************************************************************************************************

At his first news conference in January, Trump denounced the document.

"A thing like that should have never been written, it should never have been had and certainly should never have been released," he said, later saying the memo was written by "sick people [who] put that crap together."

Wow. How long can our nation survive this? It seems to get worse every day.

http://www.cnn.com/2017/10/08/politics/donald-trump-bob-corker-tweets/index.html

President Donald Trump attacked Sen. Bob Corker in a series of tweets Sunday, days after the Tennessee Republican made public comments criticizing him.

"Senator Bob Corker 'begged' me to endorse him for re-election in Tennessee. I said 'NO' and he dropped out (said he could not win without..." Trump wrote in a series of three consecutive tweets. "..my endorsement). He also wanted to be Secretary of State, I said "NO THANKS." He is also largely responsible for the horrendous Iran Deal!"

"...Hence, I would fully expect Corker to be a negative voice and stand in the way of our great agenda. Didn't have the guts to run!" Trump added.

Corker responded by tweeting an insult to Trump later Sunday morning. "It's a shame the White House has become an adult day care center. Someone obviously missed their shift this morning," Corker wrote.

Former US attorney Preet Bharara, now a senior legal analyst at CNN, retweeted Corker's response, remarking, "An adult day care center whose chief resident can't count to 51."

Bharara was fired by Trump a few months into his presidency.
Corker, the chairman of the Senate foreign relations committee, announced late last month he would not seek another term in the Senate and has made some critical comments about Trump's demeanor and temperament.

Corker said in August that Trump had not yet demonstrated "the stability nor some of the competence" he needed to be successful. He said Wednesday that Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, Defense Secretary James Mattis and White House Chief of Staff John Kelly "help separate our country from chaos."
Corker also said Tillerson has not received the support he needs from Trump.

"I mean, look, I see what's happening here," Corker said. "I deal with people throughout the administration and (Tillerson), from my perspective, is in an incredibly frustrating place, where, as I watch, OK, and I can watch very closely on many occasions, I mean you know, he ends up being not being supported in the way I would hope a secretary of state would be supported, that's just from my vantage point."

Tillerson, who has reportedly been displeased with Trump and his own role in the administration, made a public statement last week reaffirming his support for the President after news reports spoke of acrimony between the two men -- principally, that Tillerson had questioned Trump's intelligence, calling him a "moron," in front of other top officials.

Tillerson's statement of support for Trump prompted the President to say his secretary of state had refuted the story about the insult. Trump later told reporters inside a Las Vegas hospital, where he was visiting the victims of last Sunday's mass shooting, that he has "total confidence" in Tillerson and said reports that the secretary of state called him a moron were "fake news" and "totally made up."

In the end, Donald Trump finally pushed Sen. Bob Corker to the point of exasperation, frustration and exhaustion felt by vast numbers of Americans who despair of the President's behavior.
"It's a shame the White House has become an adult day care center," tweeted Corker, referring to his fellow Republican as if he needs constant minding. "Someone obviously missed their shift this morning."

Corker was provoked by early Sunday morning statements from Trump. who said, via Twitter, "Senator Bob Corker 'begged' me to endorse him for re-election in Tennessee, I said 'NO' and he dropped out (said he could not win without my endorsement)." Trump also said Corker asked to become secretary of state but, "I said 'NO THANKS.'" He also said Corker "didn't have the guts" to seek re-election in 2018.

The capital letters suggest the tweets came straight from the President. He loves capital letters. But the timing and content are more important indicators of authenticity. Trump's social media outbursts are more vivid on weekends, when he's likely home alone.

And true Trump tweets resonate with a tone -- "guts" and "begged me" are classics -- that makes it seem like he doesn't quite understand where he is, or what is required of him. (Never mind that Corker's chief of staff, Todd Womack, challenged Trump's account of the facts: "The President called Sen. Corker on Monday afternoon and asked him to reconsider his decision not to seek re-election and reaffirmed that he would have endorsed him, as he has said many times.")

In January, 49 percent of voters approved of Trump's performance, compared to 39 percent who disapproved

OK, so let's be sure we understand you. We're supposed to believe some undated COPY of an alleged poll with NO citations, after you previously FAILED to provide legitimate verification of an entirely DIFFERENT and highly suspect claim, ALL-WHILE ignoring a verifiable poll (with citation mind you) proving quite the OPPOSITE of what you're "polls" are allegedly claiming, is, in fact, TRUE.

You got Big-uns, I'll give you that.

Fox News’ Neil Cavuto Dresses Down Trump - "You Are Running Out Of Friends":

Fox News host Neil Cavuto has a warning for President Donald Trump - Get it together!

“Last time I checked, you are the president of the United States, so tweeting out these tacky insults just seems beneath you,” Cavuto said. “You are running out of friends faster than you are running out of time. You might not like Bob Corker, but a lot of senators do, and you need those senators, sir.”

Is this a lefty link?

https://www.yahoo.com/finance/news/steve-bannon-reportedly-thinks-trump-202417714.html

Former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon reportedly has told people he thinks President Donald Trump has just a 30% chance of completing his four-year term.

The detail came in an explosive report from Vanity Fair's Gabriel Sherman on Wednesday that cited several sources close to the president.

According to two of the sources, Bannon warned Trump several months ago about the possibility of getting removed from office via the 25th Amendment, prompting Trump to ask, "What's that?"

A stipulation of the 25th Amendment allows the vice president and a majority of the Cabinet — that is, 13 of 24 Cabinet members — to vote the president out of office. Bannon reportedly considered it a more likely scenario than Trump's impeachment.

Political observers have questioned for months whether Trump will serve the entirety of his four-year term. Speculation has only increased since Sunday, when Republican Sen. Bob Corker issued a scathing critique of Trump to The New York Times in which he called the White House "an adult day care center" and said the president could set the country "on the path to World War III."

Bannon, the former Trump campaign CEO and close ally to the president, left the White House in August amid reports that Trump believed Bannon was leaking information to reporters and being given credit for Trump's successes.

Bannon has resumed his perch atop the far-right site Breitbart, where he and allies have been staunchly critical of Republican leaders, including Corker this week. A Bannon-aligned group is preparing to back primary challengers to several incumbent Republican senators in the 2018 election cycle.

Republicans are waiting to pass their tax-reform bill before they move to impeach Donald Trump, a former Republican member of Congress reportedly told a former US labour secretary.

In a Facebook post, Robert Reich said the former senator, an old friend of his, told him Republicans are "just praying Trump doesn't do something really, really stupid before the tax bill."

Speaking over the phone, Mr Reich said he asked his friend whether other Republican senators were preparing to follow Senator Bob Corker and "call it quits with Trump".

His source told him: "Others are thinking about doing what Bob did. Sounding the alarm. They think Trump’s nuts. Unfit. Dangerous."

He said the US President's personal attacks on his own staff "got them to notice all the other things," such as his threats about North Korea.

"Tillerson would leave tomorrow if he wasn't so worried Trump would go nuclear, literally," he added.

"Who knows what’s in his head? But I can tell you this. He’s not listening to anyone. Not a soul.

"He’s got the nuclear codes and, well, it scares the hell out of me. It’s starting to scare all of them. That’s really why Bob spoke up."

When asked what would happen if Republican leadership said Mr Trump was unfit to serve, the former senator said: "Bingo! The emperor has no clothes. It’s a signal to everyone they can bail. Have to bail to save their skins.

"I mean, Trump could be the end of the whole goddamn Republican party."

He said once Republicans "start bailing on him, the stage is set" for impeachment."

Asked if Republicans would go that far, the senator replied: "Not yet. Here’s the thing. They really want to get this tax bill through. That’s all they have going for them.

"They don’t want to face voters in ’18 or ’20 without something to show for it. They’re just praying Trump doesn’t do something really, really stupid before the tax bill."

"Like a nuclear war?" Mr Reich asked.

"Look, all I can tell you is many of the people I talk with are getting freaked out," the former senator said.

"It’s not as if there’s any careful strategising going on. Not like, well, do we balance the tax bill against nuclear war?

"No, no. They’re worried as hell. They’re also worried about Trump crazies, all the ignoramuses he’s stirred up."

When asked what was going to happen, he said: "You got me. I’m just glad I’m not there anymore. Trump’s not just a moron. He’s a despicable human being. And he’s getting crazier. Paranoid. Unhinged.

"Everyone knows it. I mean, we’re in shit up to our eyeballs with this guy."

I'll go one step further and emphatically state that he won't finish his first term because this fool is taking the entire party in a direction even his most ardent supporter can't deny, dysfunction, making 4 star Generals lie for him while surrogates are relegated to clean up his messes This morning the idiot once again change the subject by stating that he is releasing the JFK assassination files. Really, like this is some significant revelation but to a man child mentality......."I have a secret that you don't know and I can reveal it if you're nice to me"

First New Hampshire Poll for 2020 Shows Trump Looking Vulnerable

Among Republicans, no potential challenger to Donald Trump is tested, but interestingly enough, only 47 percent say they “plan” to vote for the president in the 2020 primary, with 23 percent saying they’d prefer another candidate and 30 percent being unsure. The same survey at the same point in Barack Obama’s presidency showed 64 percent of Democrats planning to vote for the incumbent, 5 percent expressing support for a different nominee, and 30 percent unsure.

It also wasn't written by The Huffington Post. It was written by UK opinion-blogsite "The Conversation" who demand full control over content.

That alone makes it about as biased as a website can possibly be.

http://www.theaustralian.com.au/business...827c65e21cae0ee

Britain's Science Media Centre, which helps academics to communicate their research, has decided not to work with The Conversation.

Fiona Fox, chief executive of the centre, said that it was part of "a growing trend for academics to bypass the traditional news media".

Ms Fox said: "Every scientist I know wants copy approval and my job at the SMC is to say 'Get over it, it will not happen: politicians don't get it, economists don't get it, nobody gets it. It's an independent free press and you take the risk and mostly it comes out fine anyway'."

Bob Satchwell, director of the Society of Editors, said: "They should be transparent about giving copy approval to academics. The essence of a free and independent media is that no one can tell journalists what to write or what the headline must be."

"If control lies with the people making the news it is bound to be suspect."

He's already received what he wished for..one Donald Trump but surprisingly for them, his supporter never anticipated the horrific disaster he's created in only 10 months.
