    Trump--I will separate myself from my businesses

    I told you so that is total bullshit and becomes even bigger bullshit by the day.

    The press and some members of congress are finally noticing that the whole Trump family and especially Trump himself is profiting off the presidency like it just one great big White House infomercial.

    They are reporting Trump lied when he said he would separate from his businesses and just let his sons run them after Eric Trump admitted he gives his dad reports ob how things are going.

    They are also reporting Ivanka Trump is not only profiting but now represents a monumental ethics problem as her daddy moves her into the West Wing.

    They are pointing out Trump's Muslim Ban is actually profiting him.

    They are pointing out that while Trump and his family's travel expenses have already cost taxpayers more than Obama's averaged in a year Trump and his family are also profiting every time Trump runs off to Mar a Lago or visits one of his golf courses.

    And they are pointing out the lie of conservatism as it is preached and practiced in this nation because the conservative/Republican/Tea Party/White Supremacists are willing to give Trump a free pass on all that.

      Some people find it hard to believe a person can be a success. Compare Trump to several of our past presidents. Some never even owned a home until they were president. One especially never owned a home until we bought one for him. Then he stole furniture from the white house to furnish it.
      One of the good things that has happened. Trump has already brought more jobs back to the U.S. than Obama did in 8 years.

    Trump--I have a secret plan to solve North Korea problem

    Well we all know I told you so that's just total bullshit.

    Trump said the same thing about his "secret plan" to defeat ISIS. And we all know that was a lie because instead of having a plan he punted to the Defense Department to come up with a plan and when they finally did it was basically the same thing President Obama was already doing. So we know he's just bullshitting again.

    ‘Totally’: Trump says he has a secret plan to ‘solve North Korea’ — without China’s help

    What a bluffing, bullshitting, clueless clown.

      Not one President since Truman has made more than superficial efforts at solving this second oldest hot spot in the world.
      Not one.

      It would burst your blood vessel if Trump did solve this mess.
      Nah.
      You'd find a way to credit Obama, or discredit Trump.
      Cause, that's what you do.

    Here's the Full List of Donald Trump's Executive Orders
    http://www.msn.com/en-us/news/polit...umps-executive-orders/ar-AAo0hnS?ocid=U220DHP

    It's been a little over two months since Donald Trump took office, and the 45th president has already signed a dozen wide-ranging executive orders, hoping to fulfill a number of his campaign promises.

    Surrounded by staff during Oval Office photo opportunities, Trump signed the burst of orders within just his first three weeks to undo many of President Barack Obama's policies.

    Here's an updated overview of each of Trump's orders:

    Executive Order Minimizing the Economic Burden of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act

    Signed: Jan. 20, 2017

    Hours after being sworn in, Trump signed an executive order aimed at reversing the Affordable Care Act — Obama's landmark legislation — which Republicans vowed to "repeal and replace" throughout the campaign.

    The executive order states that the Trump administration will "seek prompt repeal" of the law. To minimize the "economic burden" of Obamacare, the order instructs the secretary of health and human services and other agency heads to "waive, defer, grant exemptions from, or delay the implementation" of any part of the law that places a fiscal burden on the government, businesses or individuals.

    Also in the order are directions to give states more control over implementing health-care laws.

    Expediting Environmental Reviews and Approvals for High-Priority Infrastructure Projects

    Signed: Jan. 24, 2017

    The order outlines how the administration will expedite environmental reviews and approval of "high priority" infrastructure projects, such as repairs to bridges, airports and highways.

    The order directs the Chairman of the Council on Environmental Quality (CEQ), within 30 days of a request, to determine a project's environmental impact and decide whether it is "high priority." Project review deadlines are to be put in place by the CEQ's chairman.

    The order is widely believed to have been issued in response to the protests against the Dakota Access Pipeline.

    Enhancing Public Safety in the Interior of the United States

    Signed: Jan. 25, 2017

    The order outlines changes to a few immigration policies, but most notably it strips federal grant money to so-called sanctuary cities.

    In addition, the secretary of homeland security is ordered to hire 10,000 more immigration officers, create a publicly available weekly list of crimes committed by undocumented immigrants and review previous immigration policies.

    The order also creates an office to assist the victims of crimes committed by undocumented immigrants and calls on local and state police to detain or apprehend people in the United States illegally.

    Border Security and Immigration Enforcement Improvements

    Signed: Jan. 25, 2017

    The order is aimed at fulfilling one of Trump's key campaign promises — enhancing border security — by directing federal funding to construction of a wall along the Mexico-U.S. border. It instructs the secretary of homeland security to prepare congressional budget requests for the wall and to "end the abuse of parole and asylum provisions" that complicate the removal of undocumented immigrants.

    Other parts of the order call for hiring 5,000 more Border Patrol agents, building facilities to hold undocumented immigrants near the Mexican border and ending "catch-and-release" protocols, in which immigrants in the United States without documentation are not detained while they await court hearings.

    Protecting the Nation From Foreign Terrorist Entry Into the United States

    Signed: Jan. 27, 2017

    The order suspends the entry of immigrants from seven Muslim-majority countries — Syria, Iran, Iraq, Libya, Sudan, Yemen and Somalia — for 90 days and stops all refugees from entering the country for 120 days. Syrian refugees are banned indefinitely. During the time of the ban, the secretary of homeland security and the secretary of state will review and revise the refugee admission process.

    Also in the order is the suspension of Obama's 2012 Visa Interview Waiver Program, which allowed frequent U.S. tourists to bypass the visa interview process.

    White House officials have made a number of contradictory statements, at times calling the order a "ban" and at other times referring to it as a "travel restriction." After the order was signed, thousands of protesters popped up at airports across the country to denounce it.

    Ethics Commitments by Executive Branch Appointees

    Signed: Jan. 28, 2017

    This order stops all executive branch officials from lobbying for five years after they leave office and places a lifetime ban on lobbying a foreign government.

    The order enacts a number of other lobbying restrictions, including, banning appointees from accepting gifts from registered lobbyists and banning appointees who were lobbyists from participating in any issues they petitioned for within the last two years.

    Some raised concerns over how Trump will fill the jobs in his administration under the new rules.

    Reducing Regulation and Controlling Regulatory Costs

    Signed: Jan. 30, 2017

    The order states that executive departments and agencies must slash two regulations for every one new regulation proposed. Regulation spending cannot exceed $0, and any costs associated with regulations must be offset with eliminations.

    The order also directs the head of each agency to keep records of the cost savings, to be sent to the president.

    Core Principles for Regulating the United States Financial System

    Signed: Feb. 3, 2017

    The order lays the administration's "Core Principles" regarding the U.S. financial system, which includes:

    • Making regulation "efficient, effective and appropriately tailored"
    • Preventing government bailouts
    • Ensuring that U.S. firms are competitive with foreign companies
    The order directs the treasury secretary to review financial regulations and report back to the president 120 days later with a determination of whether current policies promote the "Core Principles."

    Task Force on Crime Reduction and Public Safety

    Signed: Feb. 9, 2017

    The order directs Attorney General Jeff Sessions to create a task force that would propose new legislation to reduce crime, highlighting drug trafficking, illegal immigration and violent crime. The task force will submit yearly reports to the president.

    Throughout the campaign, Trump promised voters a return to "law and order" in the United States and said minorities from inner cities are "living in hell" because of violent crime.

    Preventing Violence Against Federal, State, Tribal, and Local Law Enforcement Officers

    Signed: Feb. 9, 2017

    The order calls on the Justice Department to "enhance the protection and safety" of law enforcement by increasing penalties for crimes committed against officers.

    The attorney general is also instructed to review and determine whether existing federal laws adequately protect law enforcement and later to propose legislation to better protect officers. The order directs the Justice Department to recommend changes in federal grant funding to law enforcement programs if they do not protect officers.

    Enforcing Federal Law With Respect to Transnational Criminal Organizations and Preventing International Trafficking

    Signed: Feb. 9, 2016

    The order outlines the administration's approach to cutting down on organized crime — including gangs, cartels and racketeering organizations — by enhancing cooperation with foreign governments and the ways in which federal agencies share information and data.

    It identifies human trafficking, drug smuggling, financial crimes, cyber-crime and corruption as "a threat to public safety and national security."

    The Threat Mitigation National Intelligence — of which Sessions, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, and the secretary of homeland security are co-chairmen — will review and recommend changes to federal agencies' practices in a report to be delivered to the president within 120 days.

    Providing an Order of Succession Within the Department of Justice

    Signed: Feb. 9, 2017

    Two weeks after Trump fired Acting Attorney General Sally Yates, this order changes the order of succession for Sessions, who won approval as attorney general last week. The sequence is: the U.S. attorney for the Eastern District of Virginia, the U.S. attorney for the Northern District of Illinois and the U.S. attorney for the Western District of Missouri.

    A week before leaving office, Obama signed an executive order changing the order of succession without explanation.

    Enforcing the Regulatory Reform Agenda

    Signed: Feb. 24, 2017

    Under this order, each agency must designate an official as its Regulatory Reform Officer (RRO), who will be responsible for reviewing current regulations and making recommendations to the agency head on how to modify them. The RRO must hone in on certain regulations, such as those that are outdated or are perceived to curtail job creation.

    The order reiterate's Trump's plan to cut down on regulations and comes nearly a month after the president signed an executive order requiring agencies to slash two regulations for every one proposed.

    Restoring the Rule of Law, Federalism, and Economic Growth by Reviewing the "Waters of the U.S." Rule

    Signed Feb. 28, 2017

    The order calls on federal agencies to revise a regulation put in place by former president Barack Obama called the Clean Water Rule. Signed in 2015, the rule expanded the number of bodies of water protected by the federal government to include streams, ponds and smaller waterways.

    Trump's order directs the administrator of the EPA and the assistant secretary of the Army for Civil Works to review the rule and propose a new one that either eliminates or revises Obama's rule.

    White House Initiative to Promote Excellence and Innovation at Historically Black Colleges and Universities

    Signed Feb. 28, 2017

    The order transfers the White House Initiative on Historically Black Colleges and Universities (WHHBCU) from the Department of Education to the Executive Office of the President. Since its creation under President Ronald Reagan, the initiative had been under the purview of the Education Department.

    Trump met with dozens of HBCU presidents the day prior for a listening session, which many students and college leaders were quick to protest out of skepticism that the president was using the meeting as a PR stunt.

    In an interview with NBC News, Omarosa Manigault said of the order, "We understand that the executive order starts the action but there are so many different steps in terms of defining programming."

    Protecting the Nation from Foreign Terrorist Entry into the U.S.

    Signed: March 6, 2017

    The order revises Trump's original U.S. immigration ban, which was hit with dozens of lawsuits shortly after being signed in February and blocked by a federal judge in Washington state. The new order, which goes into effect March 16, bans citizens from six Muslim-majority countries from entering the U.S. for 90 days.

    The countries include Iran, Somalia, Sudan, Yemen, Syria and Libya. Iraq was removed from the list after the Iraqi government said it would increase information sharing with the United States.

    Comprehensive Plan for Reorganizing the Executive Branch

    Signed: March 13, 2017

    The order assigns the Office of Management and Budget director Mick Mulvaney to propose a plan to "reorganize and governmental functions and eliminate unnecessary agencies" in an effort to cut down of federal spending and improve "efficiency, effectiveness and accountability of that agency." Within 180 days, the heads of select agencies must submit individual plans to Mulvaney, who will have another 180 days to send a plan to the president.

    During a daily press briefing, Press Secretary Sean Spicer called the executive order "long overdue" and said agencies will undergo a "thorough investigation" into fiscal waste, though he was unable to provide a target goal for the amount of money the order aims to save.

    The Revocation of Federal Contracting Executive Orders

    Signed: March 27, 2017

    The order undoes a previous executive order signed by Barack Obama in 2014 that banned federal contractors from discriminating against workers based on their sexual orientation. Set to take effect in 2016, Obama's "Fair Pay and Safe Workplaces" order would have required companies seeking federal contracts prove they do not discriminate based on sexual orientation, but it was stalled by a lawsuit.

    Some LGBT advocates told NBC News they are worried that Trump's new order will allow the federal government to ignore cases of workplace discrimination brought against companies they work with.

    Promoting Energy Independence and Economic Growth

    Signed: March 28, 2017

    The order directs the Environmental Protection Agency to review another executive order, called the Clean Power Plan, signed by Barack Obama in 2014. Obama's plan, which aimed to reduce carbon pollution from power plants, was halted by the Supreme Court in 2016.

    Trump's new order also asks agencies to review any regulations that could "potentially burden the development or use" of oil, natural gas, coal, and nuclear energy resources. Within 180 days, the agencies must submit reports to the Office of Management and Budget, which will take action to eliminate regulations.

    Establishing the President's Commission on Combating Drug Addiction and the Opioid Crisis

    Signed: March 29, 2017

    The order creates the "Commission on Combating Drug Addiction and Opioid Crisis," which will study the federal government's effectiveness in fighting drug addiction by reviewing funding levels, accessibility of treatment services, prescription practices and youth educational messages. A report will be sent to the president within 90 days of the order being signed.

    Trump appointed Gov. Chris Christie of New Jersey as head of the commission.

    Omnibus Report on Significant Trade Deficits

    Signed: March 31, 2017

    The order directs the Commerce Department and U.S. Trade Representative to compile a report on trade practices that contribute to the trade deficit. The report will look at each of America's trade partners and assess whether the country's trade practices unfairly discriminate against the U.S.

    Forms of discrimination the report will assess includes non-tariff barriers, anti-dumping and intellectual property theft. Within 90 days, the report will be sent to the White House detailing causes for the deficit.

    Providing an Order of Succession Within the Department of Justice

    Signed: March 31, 2017

    The order changes the succession line for the Attorney General Jeff Sessions. The new sequence is:

    • United States Attorney for the Eastern District of Virginia
    • United States Attorney for the Eastern District of North Carolina
    • United States Attorney for the Northern District of Texas
    Establishing Enhanced Collection and Enforcement of Anti-Dumping and Countervailing Duties and Violations of Trade and Customs Law

    Signed: March, 31, 2017

    The order directs the Secretary of Homeland Security to develop a plan within 90 days to combat two types of non-trade barriers placed against the U.S.: anti-dumping and countervailing duties.

    The order also directs the DHS Secretary and Treasury Secretary to step up seizure of counterfeit goods and protect American companies from intellectual property right infringement.

    Trump--I will separate myself from my business interests

    Yeah well we all knew and told you so that's total bullshit.

    But Trump continues to get caught lying to the American people.

    Trump can pull money from his businesses whenever he wants — without ever telling us

      What nonsense. Trump could just swing by the club house in one of his Florida properties and raid the petty cash or the cash register. No need to draw from his trust. Which, by the way, all modern Presidents have had.

    You mean a lot of damage... In fact, instead of adding to or even improving upon anything, all he has accomplished is simply eradicating a lot of hard work, years of effort and billions of dollars now wasted, all to try and erase the legacy be it good or bad of Obama. IOW, he is wasting even more money by eliminating that work, and paying people to do it, all just to say he did something... and a LOT of very good Obama era rules and accomplishments that are important enough that they WILL have to be done again (costing even more money) are being eliminated setting us back YEARS.

    Yeah, great job, the Ass-Clown simply is destroying the American government. Great plan...

    And not only are most of Trump's executive orders just meaningless photo ops they are also setting up multiple law suits and will probably be thrown out and at the very least probably be tangled up in court for years.

    The person who ordered the unmasking of U.S. citizens for political purposes has been found. Susan Rice. Not only unmasked names but sent those names to the National Security Council, Defense Dept., James Clapper, and John Brennan.
    Now we know why the democrats have been so fired up about Russia. It was to cover up felonies committed by Obama's staff.
    Oh, I almost forgot. Trump was right.

    Another prime example of how out of touch the current administration is regarding how the world works. A "Let them eat cake" level of ignorance instantly comes to mind.

    People often ask me "how is it that I have had so much exposure (and therefor knowledge and experience) to numerous criminal activities from singular to organized large scale levels?" My answer is simple. Though a victimless activity (how I did it), my profession before retiring is considered a criminal activity. That being, sex work including prostitution. Before that I was in environments that were purely victim based (being slavery, then government corruption and oppression). In all cases however, because illegal activities were part of the mix, that meant that government and law enforcement was avoided.

    As an example: If next door to me drugs are being sold, gun-running, kidnapping, murder, rape and so on is going on, I could not report it to the proper authorities for fear that my own victimless crimes would be prosecuted. I couldn't even risk an anonymous call in that it would bring LE in close proximity to me. So the victim based criminal activity went on unchecked. Worse still, those malicious criminals would actually search for locations where I and those like me could safely live and work in that they realized that simply to protect ourselves, we had to ignore what they were doing or risk our own prosecution.

    Our new administration doesn't get that... Proof of shown below.

    DHS won't rule out arresting crime victims, witnesses
    http://www.msn.com/en-us/news/us/dh...ime-victims-witnesses/ar-BBzmlbo?ocid=U220DHP

    WASHINGTON — The Homeland Security Department said Tuesday it can't promise that immigrants in the United States illegally won't be arrested if they come forward to report they have been a victim of a crime or a witness to one.

    The comments by Homeland Security spokesman David Lapan at a news briefing come amid concerns by local officials that Immigration and Custom Enforcement agents are making arrests in courthouses. They say that can deter some victims from reporting crimes or witnesses from cooperating in investigations.

    Lapan said some victims and witnesses themselves are potentially criminal immigrants who may pose a threat to the country or who have been ordered out of the United States before.

    He noted there are special visas, known as U visas, for immigrants in the country illegally who are victims of certain crimes, including sexual assault and domestic violence. Ten thousand of these visas are available annually.

    Lapan also said immigration arrests in courthouses are necessary because some jurisdictions won't cooperate with requests to alert the federal government before potentially deportable immigrants are released from jail or detained long enough for ICE agents to take them into federal custody.

    Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly and Attorney General Jeff Sessions also defended the practice in a letter last month to the chief justice of the California Supreme Court. "Because courthouse visitors are typically screened upon entry to search for weapons and other contraband, the safety risks for arresting officers and persons being arrested are substantially decreased," Kelly and Sessions wrote.

    Some local official are already attributing a drop in reported crimes to President Donald Trump's crackdown on illegal immigration. Los Angeles Police Chief Charlie Beck said last month that his city has seen a 25 percent decrease in the number of sexual assaults reported by Latinos living in the city and a drop of about 10 percent in the number of reported domestic violence cases since Trump took office.

    So... Crime rates will rise, especially those which are malicious. Is that their intent? Know also, there is NO breaking point where enough is enough. Those suffering under such conditions either move, or deal with it burying themselves in deeper.

      Are you suggesting we allow certain people to remain criminals while arresting those that might also be criminals but could bring attention to the first group of criminals?
       
      msman, Apr 5, 2017

      I'm suggesting that you not punish someone for helping you to do your job. It's rather obvious, you can have the population help you go after violent and destructive crime, in fact often give you insights that you'd not know otherwise, or you can have those crimes increase dramatically all to simply go after the "popular" focus of the moment which happens to be upon actually constructive individuals now in a bad situation (by their own doing, yet there they are).

      Pick one, it can't be both.

      Yes, it can be both. Law enforcement should not be allowed to pick and choose what laws they are going to enforce.
      If they are not going to enforce laws already on the book they should look for opportunities in another areas.

      Look at it another way. One group is breaking the law. If they were not breaking the law in the first place there wouldn't be a line of crimes following them.
      Like Barney Fife says. Nip it in the bud.

      Unfortunately in this case you offer "all or nothing" which yields nothing. I suggest that it can be one or none. I choose one. To say otherwise goes right back to that lack of understanding I spoke of.

    It is harsh to say, but Shooter agrees with DHS on this.
    We have created a lot of this mess all by ourselves, and there are no easy fixes left.

    We have allowed people to remain in this country illegally for years without moving their cases forward; while the bureaucracy diddles along these people have gotten married, had children, and established lives.
    We have given them access to education, medical care, allowed them to get a Drivers License and in almost every way assimilate into this society.

    Except that they are still here ILLEGALLY. They should not be here. They haven't been anointed as citizens. So now, we have an administration that dealing with all this and setting some clear rules for staying in the country (felons need not apply) and we are deporting people to countries they haven't been to for years. It is tearing families apart. It is fodder for sanctuary cities. It is talking points for unsupporters. It is long overdue.

    The reality is that being in the US Illegally leaves you in the shadows; you have no protection from unscrupulous employers who will take advantage of you. Criminals know you are an easy mark because you are less likely to report crime, and you cannot take advantage of all of the protections that would be available to you as a citizen.

    Americans suffer as well. If you get sick, we have to pay for your care. You fill up our schools and no, you don't pay your share of those taxes because for starters in most cases we have to have a school within a school to teach your kids in their native language. And if you drive you drive without insurance so if you have an accident my insurance pays, not you (this has happened to Shooter; $2,500 in repairs, the cops wrote Juan 8 separate tickets and he was sent on his way and just ........... disappeared).

    One good thing is that it appears a significant percentage of those here illegally are self deporting, choosing to leave on their terms, not on ours. Whatever works.

    So, out of touch with reality?
    Hardly. The first administration in years that is in touch with reality. And making the hard decisions.

      Sorry about that. My cat jumped up on my keyboard. I have reported it as I cannot delete it.
      Anyone know a way to delete mistakes?

    Trump--I will keep jobs in the US and get rid of NAFTA

    I told you so that is total bullshit.

    One of Trump’s biggest campaign promises is already going down in flames

    THE EMPLOYMENT SITUATION -- FEBRUARY 2017

    Total nonfarm payroll employment increased by 235,000 in February, and the
    unemployment rate was little changed at 4.7 percent, the U.S. Bureau of
    Labor Statistics reported today. Employment gains occurred in construction,
    private educational services, manufacturing, health care, and mining.

    Just take note of how the PR hacks, their many socks, plastic bubble Trump supporters and at least one brainwashed parrot are still trying to take credit for any positive economic news when Trump has not done anything or passed anything that would affect that and he is still riding the economic coat tails President Obama built.

    Once again Thanks President Obama. You we were truly a great President. Who never once in eight years had a lower approval rating than Trump does now in less than 100 days.

      Now this is a twist from the usual unsupporter chants. now it's

      Trump didn't do it, The Republicans didn't do it, and the Russians for sure didn't do it.
      Clinton might have done it, the Democrats probably did it, but Obama, now Obama did do it.

      A sign things are improving; the unsupporters are starting to say that Obama did it.

      You know, if you had no other information about that era to go on, then those might fool folks into believing it. Fortunately, it's all a little more complex than that, but keep at it!

      Maybe one day you'll get Obama out of office ;)

      Hush, do you remember how long we kept hearing everything was Bush's fault?

      No... About as long as we heard it was Clinton's fault?

    All that did was undo Obama's sneaky attempt to put his own hatchet men on Trump's back.


    Did the Obama Administration Try Stacking the Deck Against Trump at the Justice Department?


    3/3/17

    Amid Thursday’s over-hyped brouhaha about Jeff Sessions meeting with the Russian ambassador, a curious detail emerged. In Sessions's recusal memo, it was explained who at the Justice Department would be handling any investigations into the Trump campaign's alleged ties to Russia. "Consistent with the succession order for the Department of Justice, Acting Deputy Attorney General and U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Virginia Dana Boente shall act as and perform the functions of the Attorney General with respect to any matters from which I have recused myself to the extent they exist," reads Sessions's official statement on the matter.

    Except that if the Obama administration had its way, Dana Boente wasn't supposed be the U.S. attorney to handle these matters in the event that Sessions recused himself. On February 10, USA Today reported the following:

    Seven days before he left office, President Obama changed the order of succession without explanation to remove Boente from the list. Obama's order had listed U.S. attorneys in the District of Columbia, the Northern District of Illinois and the Central District of California.​

    That seems like awfully suspicious behavior. In fact the USA Today story noted this is pegged to the news that Trump quietly signed an executive order restoring Boente to the line of succession. The Obama administration chicanery was likely brought to White House's attention after Obama holdover and acting Attorney General Sally Yates tried to usurp the powers of the president and countermand his immigration executive order, actions for which she was summarily fired.

    Why would the Obama administration make this eleventh-hour change to the line of succession at the Justice Department? "At the time, I was told it was done in consultation with Trump transition," Gregory Korte, the USA Today reporter who wrote the story quoted above, told me Thursday. "Looking back, that's clearly not the case."

    In fact, it seems like it was quite obviously not the case. The man Obama placed at the head of the line of succession is D.C.'s U.S. Attorney Channing Phillips, who is quite cozy with President Obama and his attorney general, Eric Holder. He is a former senior adviser to Holder, and he stayed on to work under Obama's next AG Loretta Lynch before Obama appointed Phillips D.C.'s U.S. attorney in 2015. But Phillips goes way back with Holder—Holder first hired Philips in the D.C. U.S. Attorney's Office in 1994. It's also safe to say that the AG offices in the Northern District of Illinois and the Central District of California are not hotbeds of Trump supporters.

    It looks like the Obama administration was hoping that the reins of power here would unknowingly default to someone unfriendly to Trump in the event Sessions was forced to recuse himself—or even resign, as so many Democrats breathlessly demanded Thursday. (It's worth noting that Sessions's claims that he was already considering recusing himself from the Russia investigations because of his role on the campaign seem pretty sincere. Reuters reported last Sunday that the White House was considering the need for Sessions's recusal long before the teacup tempest about Sessions failing to disclose minor encounters with the Russian ambassador.)

    Yeah what Hush said.

    But actually I was just still bitching about that leg up post.

    I have important work to do here. Don't be detracting me with that piece of tin foil shiny side up. You know how us Pack Rats are.
