Roger Stone, Turmp advisor, admits contact with DNC Hacker...there is more

Roger Stone admitted that he had had several contacts with the DNC Hacker through twitter following a hack of the DNC.
The hacker, known as Guccifer  2.0 is believed to be a Russian operative that Roger Stone congratulated for hacking in Moscow's attempt to interfere in the 2016 US election in order to help Trump win.

GStone told the Times he exchanged a handful of messages with Guccifer 2.0 in the weeks following a hack of the DNC, which was revealed in late July.
In one message from Aug. 14, Stone said he was "delighted" that Guccifer 2.0's Twitter account had been reinstated after being suspended.
One message Guccifer 2.0 wrote to Stone:  "wow.  thank u for writing back and thank you for an article about me!!! do u find anything interesting in the docs I posted?"  This referred to an article Stone wrote for Breibart News on Aug 5 attributed Guccifer 2.0 with the breach.  "I'm pleased to say that u r great men.  Please tell me if I can help u anyhow. It would be a great pleasure to me." he also wrote to Stone on Aug 17.
Mike Flynn was under contract to Turkey in Sept 2016 on through his short stay Director of Intellegence.

TrumpCare, TrumpCare, TrumpCare, TrumpCare, TrumpCare, TrumpCare! Take that White House!

The republicans hate President Obama soooo much they are destroying anything that he had his finger on or happened while he was president whether it was a good thing or had flaws in.

The health care act, "The Affordable Health Care Act" which republicans hated from the beginning and so they dubbed "ObamaCare" had a very rocky start just getting passed.  I watched some of the very many hearings on it and was amazed.  The repubs were trying to block every move.  The biggest one I watched was when they refused to allow a bargaining power for the AHCA to get lower prices for meds.  I couldn't believe it.  At the time, senior citizens were chartering buses to Canada to go up and buy cheaper meds because they couldn't afford them in the US.  You know the drugs must have been so high to make it worthwhile for them to charter a bus and take that long trip.

The repubs would not only not allow the AHCA bargaining power, they then passed a law that it was illegal for US citizens to buy their meds anywhere else!!  Can you believe it!

Anyhow, the Democrates were compromising all over to get something enough repubs would pass.  They dropped single-payer, for instance.  Anyhow, once the weakened bill passed then the repubs said it was so bad and railled against it ever since.

I know at least 4 people that were tremendously helped by ObamaCare.  One at least figures her life was saved.

So, anyhow TRUMPCARE.  They took out the funding for it.  ObamaCare required everyone to have insurance.  If you didn't you had to pay a fine.  This is so the fund had lots of healthy people in it and so their premiums paid for the sick people.  That is how regular insurance works....with car insurance they have lots of good drivers and their premiums help cover the bad ones.

Any how, that is called the risk factor and it is a normal thing.  The Repubs thought this was just terrible.  So, now their plan has no funding for it EXCEPT they plan on charging high premiums for infants and older people because they are the ones that have higher medical needs.  Sorry to tell them but these are the demographics that DON'T HAVE MONEY.   They took off the requirement that evreyone has to have insurance so there goes a lot of money, especially from the healthy young adults. And the fine for not having insurance is gone too.

Soooo, where is the sustaining funding from?

So far the AARP, AMA hospital orgs, etc. said they do not support TRUMPIDON"TCARE.

I am so sick of this clown in the White House

Last weekend tRump threw a fit, again, and started a twitter binge.  This time he says that President Obama wiretapped tRump tower and that tRumps phones have been wiretaps.

Of course he can just libel and lie and nothing happens.  So disgusting.
So-called experts seem to think that it is a diversion from the Russian contacts stories.

Speaking of Russians:

Remember the British spy that sent the Russian dossier information on tRump a while back.  This spy had said he got his information from a Russian spy.  The British spy has gone underground, afraid of being "knocked off".

Then happens, this is the Russian spy:

Hopefully the Dems will be able to push through a Special Prosecutor for investigate the Russian connections of the tRump people.  It used to be the Republicans that were over-paranoid about Russia.  Now they have no fear at all because their Saint Rump is best friends with Putin.

EPA destruction continues

Trump's administration is considering plans to cut staff at the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency by one-fifth , according to a document reviewed by Washington Post reporters. The EPA cuts would eliminate key programs.

- Removed a rule requiring oil companies to disclose payments to foreign governments (2/1)
- Revoked a rule banning lead bullets (3/1)

- Dropped a rule that requires oil companies to document the amount of methane, an extremely potent greenhouse gas, they emit (3/2)
This absolute disrespect for our environment by this administration is truly saddening.

Press Attack

The White House requested the FBI to publicly "knock down" media reports about communications between Donald Trump's associates and Russians known to US intelligence during the 2016 presidential campaign, according to multiple US Officials that were briefed on the matter. (CNN)

This issue is getting more and more attention because the WH was trying to influence the FBI in an investigation.

Trump's former Communications Director, Sam Nunberg, said the best way to make Trump happy is to keep him inundated with a never ending heap of praise to fuel his narcissistic demands.
Spicer call a "gaggle" with news corps but blocked all the main news companies
 from entering because they report "fake" news.

So far,

Thanks to someone that was keeping better track than me.  There is just so much going down.
