The best Presidential
Gaff I have seen  yet .
Wiretapping are serious allegations . Trump clasped Obama’s shoulder and shook hands before the two parted ways and the former president boarded a helicopter outside the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 20.They haven’t spoken since, although Trump tried to call Obama to thank him for the traditional letter that one president leaves for his successor in the Oval Office. Obama was traveling at the time and the two never connected, people familiar with the matter said. Former President Obama was reportedly furious after President Trump fired off tweets accusing him of wiretapping Trump Tower before the presidential election, according to a new report.An aide to Obama told The Wall Street Journal the former president had decided he would not respond to every one of the his successor's tweets. But people familiar with Obama's thinking told the Journal he was livid after Trump posted several tweets early Saturday morning making serious accusations. President Trump has sparked a firestorm by accusing then-President Obama of wiretapping communications in Trump Tower during the 2016 presidential campaign, without providing any evidence for his claim. Yes, with out any evidence. It seems that all the hearsay about it started with a right wing news pundit named (1)>> Mark R Levin Levin said, “Well, a pleasure to be here. The
evidence is overwhelming. This is not about President Trump’s tweeting. This is about the Obama administration spying, and the question is not whether it spied. We know they went to the FISA court twice. The question is who they did spy on and the extent of the spying that is the Trump campaign, the Trump transition, Trump surrogates.” Do we REALLY BELIEVE Trump's latest tweet? Honestly I don't in the way we are being mislead by the Right , as much on the Left . The Truth I really speculate on is that if there was any real wiretap on Trump, is  that he was being  investigated regarding any "dubious" relationships with Trump INC with Russia . So far between Flynn and Sessions the company of lairs club may grow . I think common people just wont get the point . I said this before . Donald J Trump has had dealings with Russia for over 30 years as a business man . It's hard to escape that fact among the rest of the Republicans , not just so much with the liberal Democrats . & I wrote many and a few regarding this . For my Democratic friends , I say that Russia - Putin did not "influence" the election that caused Hillary to lose { by hacking our voting machines }  . They { Democrats } have to get over it . There is something more sinister GOING on in our nation why Hillary R Clinton lost to the billionaire mogul . I think the answer is  , a word no on likes but its going to undermine our democracy . Think CONSPIRACY , and COLLUSION . Now if the wiretapping was true . With out joking {seriously } about it . It's possible that Trump himself was wiretapped not by outgoing President Obama{drum roll please...} (2)>>It's VARY POSSIBLE that it was ordered by the Russians ? . It was so easy for the Russians to snoop in on our elections because Trump was a favorite of the Russian regime . The big Russian conglomerates lavished the fact that they had a American Presidential candidate who on network TV talked about -- "why can we not just get along with Russia..." . This whole suspicious behavior  was instigated by President Trump . Trump while a candidate in 2016 welcomed Russia to hack into Hillary's server . Why Trump was elected with all his imperfections reflects that attitudes of the mislead American population . I think Trump in a psychological point of view is Trump is not fit to have the Presidency . RATIONALLY no good American candidate would ask to have a foreign government hack into an opponent's e-mail . It in my view it invited espionage . And a serious breaking of America's law . So if we believe Trump's crazy tweet, he is accusing Obama exactly what he invited the Russians to do to Hillary . So the the alarm must of been sounded SOMEWHERE in the FBI that some crazy shit was go on . The FBI and various congressional committees are investigating Russian efforts to influence last year's election by hacking Democratic Party officials, and whether Trump campaign associates had contacts with Russian officials during the election year.

Add caption
 In another Tuesday tweet, Trump promoted the proposed House health care bill."Our wonderful new Healthcare Bill is now out for review and negotiation. ObamaCare is a complete and total disaster - is imploding fast!" he tweeted. Many Americans are anticipating this new healthcare law as Republicans are gutting Obamacare .Soon after two House committees on Monday evening released the text of the highly anticipated health care plan, the American Health Care Act, Trump and top administration officials began courting support from conservative lawmakers and outside groups. TRULY its going to suck , here is why . (3)>>House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) on Wednesday said he’s “not that concerned” about criticism of the wealthy getting a tax cut under the GOP’s new health care billFox News host Tucker Carlson told Ryan it’s “kind of a hard sell” to argue the wealthy should get a tax cut under the American Health Care Act. Ryan brushed it off. “I’m not that concerned about it, because we said we were going to repeal all the Obamacare taxes,” Ryan said. “This is one of the Obamacare taxes.” Its Obvious that these idiots like Paul Ryan want the wealthy to get off well with the best healthcare .  The TAX CUT SHOULD BE FOR THOSE POOR or OTHERWISE cant afford HEALTH COVERAGE . It's same smoke and mirror's to the While those who can't afford it are getting thrown under the bus . Another Republican for note. A first-term congressman who spent three decades as a physician — and is now part of a group of Republican doctors who have a major role in replacing Obamacare — is facing backlash after saying that poor people “just don’t want health care and aren’t going to take care of themselves” Rep. Roger Marshall, (R-Kan.), a member of the GOP Doctors Caucus, said comments he made to STAT were not meant to suggest that poor people take health care for granted. The comments were published in a story last week about his burgeoning role in the fight to replace the Affordable Care Act.“Just like Jesus said, ‘The poor will always be with us,’ ” Marshall said in response to a question about Medicaid, which expanded under Obamacare to more than 30 states. “There is a group of people that just don’t want health care and aren’t going to take care of themselves.”He added that “morally, spiritually, socially,” the poor, including the homeless, “just don’t want health care.”  This reflects what the GOP believe about healthcare . They don't want BIG GOVERNMENT stepping IN . As as NOW  the GOP being forced into the situation thanks to President OBAMA . Healthcare Reform  was lagging in our nations history . There was a chance back when (4)>>Nixon was President President Richard Nixon's Special Message to the Congress Proposing a Comprehensive Health Insurance Plan was on February 6, 1974. However, Ted Kennedy, is no different than any other Kennedy who want center stage, fame, glory and publicity: Kennedy was detrimental for all AMERICANS when he decided only the 'Kennedy" political stamp should be on the U.S.A. 'health-care' bill. The Clinton's wouldn't allow Teddy center stage during their health care debates, - but - Obama was desperate for Kennedy approval. It was quid pro quo for Teddy's support to Obama in return for Teddy receiving credit being instrumental, in plain English, allowing CORPORATIONS into the oval office to craft a health care plan for Americans. Democratic policy is self-serving with politicians trying to make a name for themselves, at the expense of the people.At the heart of Nixon's plans was helping the disadvantaged: "Those who need care most often get care least. And even when the poor do get service, it is often second-rate," Nixon told Congress in 1971. "This situation will be corrected only when the poor have sufficient purchasing power to enter the medical marketplace on equal terms with those who are more affluent." The Nitty -Gritty , beware of Republican's bearing gifts . The healthcare system they offer is for profit driven not for patients .
Competition along state lines ? REALLY ?
Look everyone reading this .  (4)>>Why can't you buy auto insurance across state lines ? The idea of developing a more national market for health insurance has become a major part of Republican health reform orthodoxy. A bill to allow interstate insurance sales was introduced in Congress in 2005, and, since then, has been a part of the platform of every Republican presidential nominee. Mr. Trump is not alone in his view: Scott Walker, Marco Rubio, Ted Cruz, Rand Paul, Rick Santorum and Bobby Jindal have all endorsed it. Aside from repealing the Affordable Care Act, allowing insurers to sell their products across state lines appears to be the most popular health policy idea among the G.O.P. candidates. The idea is that by eliminating the red tape associated with state insurance regulation, insurers will be able to offer national plans with lower administrative costs. That would expand consumers’ choices and reduce the price of insurance. The proposals also all assume that, in place of expensive regulations in some states, insurers would have the option of choosing to base their companies in a state with fewer rules. In some versions of the plan, they would have to comply only with basic federal requirements that would apply everywhere. And there’s the rub, which is a similar problem President Obama’s Affordable Care Act has faced with risk pools not having enough healthy people buying policies to pay the mounting costs of the sick.“Sales across state lines would reduce premiums for those who are healthy at a given time while increasing premiums and reducing access to coverage for those with current or past health problems,” according to an analysis earlier this year by the Urban Institute’s health policy center.Furthermore, consumers need to have an adequate network of doctors and hospitals in order to get the care they need and that means insurers have to spend more money to pay these providers. Since it’s a costly proposition for the insurers to build these networks of doctors and hospitals in new regions, health plans aren't generally willing to enter new markets.  What AMERICA needs is a "single payer system " for healthcare . A majority of Americans support a single-payer, Medicare-for-all healthcare system, a new poll shows. The results showed that just over 50 percent of the 1,500 likely voters surveyed indicated support for a single-payer system. Almost 80 percent of Democrats supported such a plan, while 25 of Republicans did.As Donna Smith, Larry's wife and indefatigable single-payer advocate has stressed, making a change to single-payer would also uproot the current system which she describes as a profit-driven healthcare "cartel.""If we had an improved and expanded Medicare-for-all for life system, financed through a public, single-payer model, our system would be just that—our health care system. We would be the ones making sure that good health care access and fairly negotiated pricing was done in the best interests of us all. Until then, we are at the mercy of the health care cartel that is so powerful that it currently controls almost one-fifth of the U.S. economy," she wrote.


The leak factory didn't even bother trying to play coy --(5)>> it actually made the "Vault 7". When the news hit Tuesday morning, the bigger outlets ran wild, uncritically repeating the WikiLeaks press statement, and reporting on the documents without having them verified. If only being first was better than being correct.The files are the most comprehensive release of US spying files ever made public, according to Julian Assange. In all, there are 8,761 documents that account for "the entire hacking capacity of the CIA", Mr Assange claimed in a release, and the trove is just the first of a series of "Vault 7" leaks.Already, the files include far more pages than the Snowden files that exposed the vast hacking power of the NSA and other agencies.In publishing the documents, WikiLeaks has published a huge trove of what appear to be CIA spying secrets.Has the Central Intelligence Agency ever spied on American citizens? That was a question thrown at Julian Assange today during a press briefing hosted on Twitter's Periscope, just a matter of days after revealing the alleged documents . What I find interesting is that the Government spying network is not about spying in regards to fighting terrorism , or protecting the nation against a nuclear threat . It was more about spying on the average American via technology , like Smart TV's . the CIA released a statement Wednesday in response to the massive leak, in which it claimed it would never spy on Americans, as to do so would be illegal. "It is ... important to note that CIA is legally prohibited from conducting electronic surveillance targeting individuals here at home, including our fellow Americans, and CIA does not do so. CIA's activities are subject to rigorous oversight to ensure that they comply fully with U.S. law and the Constitution," said CIA spokesperson Jonathan Liu. Well I think the CIA has nothing to do with it's time except spying on us . Liu's statement is arbitrary.  


(1)>> Mark R Levin. Trump Repeated Rumor From Right-Wing Radio Host Mark Levin To Accuse Obama Administration Of Spying On Him During Election, Offering No Evidence. On the morning of March 4, President Donald Trump sent out a series of tweets accusing former President Barack Obama of improperly having his communications in Trump Tower wiretapped during the presidential campaign. Trump cited no evidence to support his allegation, which, according to BuzzFeed, “appears to have followed a path through the pro-Trump media” and may have been sparked by a right-wing radio rumor that was written up in a post. [BuzzFeed, 3/4/17Levin Is One Of The Most Popular Talk Radio Hosts In The Country. Levin, a nationally syndicated radio host, was ranked fourth on Talkers magazine’s list of the “100 Most Important Talk Radio Show Hosts In America for 2016.” A 2013 Daily Beast article called Levin possibly “the most powerful conservative you never heard of,” citing his influence in the tea party movement and in the fight over comprehensive immigration reform. According to the article, former Minnesota Republican Rep. Michele Bachmann credited Levin.  (2)>>It's VARY POSSIBLE that it was ordered by the Russians ? . With this all comes the continuing question. the Trump camp claims, all these Russian contacts were “no big deal,” what other countries were the Trump folks in contact to this degree, not just after election but for months and even years before the election?  Just Russia it seems and of course the question is what was there about Russia that made it so special? on a website called The Trump Watchdog(3)>>House Speaker Paul Ryan .   Paul Ryan has released a sweeping proposal—the American Health Care Act—to remake the U.S. health care system. Also as expected, lots of people hate it. What’s somewhat more surprising is that so many Republicans seem to hate it.               (4)>>Nixon was President .  First came Nixon's National Health Strategy in 1971, which the Democrats ridiculed and fought tooth and nail, warning it would hurt the middle class. Nixon tried again in 1974 with his Comprehensive Health Insurance Plan and encountered the same partisan resistance.How radical were Nixon's plans in comparison to Obama's? Nixon was pushing for a stronger federal role in health care and greater cost burdens on employers, the very elements the Republican-led Congress oppose today with the ACA. Nixon proposed requiring that all employers provide basic health insurance for all full-time employees; the ACA requires this only for businesses employing more than 50 workers. Under Nixon's plans, employees would have paid less for health insurance than they do today; the 1974 plan included federal subsidies to help with employers' share of the extra cost burden, according to the researchers.Nixon's 1974 plan also would have replaced state-run Medicaid programs for the poor with a federally subsidized plan open to anyone not eligible for employee health insurance or Medicare. But today, 16 governors — all Republican — have refused to accept federal funds to expand Medicaid coverage in their states, as provided by Obama's plan, according to the Kaiser Family Foundation.After the death of Nixon's plans, the United States did not see meaningful changes in health care until the late 1990s with the expansion of Medicaid to cover children living in near-poverty, according to the researchers. Even after this change, one-third of the nation was still uninsured.(4)>>Why can't you buy auto insurance across state lines ? The GREAT REPUBLICAN MYTH that you can buy health insurance across state lines . All the Republican friends I know have bought into the myth that President Trump shares . The reality as revealed by the Insurance Commissioners report says otherwise { see } . (5)>> it actually made the "Vault 7". I think that there are more of these Vaults out there .  In an unusual turn, the CIA made a statement. Intelligence officials told press the agency was aware of a breach leading to this very dump, and is looking at contractors as the likeliest source. A formal criminal probe has been opened.Thanks to the disinformation, lots of people are concerned about what was in the dump and how it affects their privacy and security. The contents haven't been confirmed by the CIA but it looks like it's shaping up to be the real deal. It mostly contains a lot of attack tools, and lots of clues that CIA operatives love Dr. Who, Nyan Cat, and hoard cheesy memes. The coincidence of not publishing anything on the Republicans or Russia seems to lead to only one really tenable explanation and that is that WikiLeaks and particularly Assange is a patsy of the Russian intelligence agencies and the Russian Government. The Republicans certainly have no better security that the Democrats and again we have an interesting timing for the release of this latest helping of files this time from the CIA.
