It Never Ends …..

Doesn’t It Seem

Doesn’t it seem that every time Trump seems to be making progress and gaining some positive feedback a new negative story erupts the next day?  This week the positives over North Korea seemed to clearing the way for a good week. Then boom. Out came the Mueller questions the next day. He wants to ask Trump all these questions!  The next day we hear Mueller has threatened to subpoena the President.
That allows the MSM to lead with negatives all over again.  It just seems to happen every time the President appears to be gaining momentum.

Then along comes the story of Trump’s doctor back in NY. Did you see him on TV? I saw him and wondered, was or is anyone around this guy normal? The MSM took advantage of this story. They had the doctor saying Trump told him what to say. That they came and took his records after the election. They made it sound so sinister and like a crime. The doctors mannerisms didn’t help.
We remember the press hounding Trump during the campaign on medical records. So Trump calls the doctor and says get something out and tell them I “will be healthiest person ever to assume the office”.  Sounds like Trump right? As we learned later from the WH doctor he is in good shape.

By the way, the doctor said that Trump dictated the letter and he signed it. He didn’t say it was untrue, only that he signed it. The MSM made it sound sinister. Why?  Was it a lie? He didn’t say that.
Quite a doctor this guy.

As for stealing the records after the election.
Well, when you move, as Trump  was, from one place to another, you change doctors. Don’t you go get your records to bring with you? Why is that a story?

In The Meantime

Did you see this on the MSM yesterday?
House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte Tuesday urged Attorney General Jeff Sessions to investigate allegations that top Obama-era Department of Justice officials tried to shut down the FBI probe into the Clinton Foundation during the 2016 presidential election.

This came about because of the McCabe investigation.  “An inspector general report on former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe released last month detailed an August 2016 phone call from a high-ranking Justice Department official. Mr. McCabe thought the call was made to scuttle the FBI’s Clinton Foundation investigation while Hillary Clinton was running for president, according to the report”.

It is still amazing to us how the Clintons skate on issue after issue.

The Caravan on The Border

We’ve watch this march through Mexico to the border. We have heard of lawyers advising the marchers on what to say. U.S. law says if you are being harassed and threatened you can seek asylum.  So here are the remaining marchers at the border claiming this.

I would feel better about their claims if they weren’t waving flags from the country they are trying to escape from. If I was leaving the U.S. to go live elsewhere because they wanted to kill me, I am sure I would not be waving the U.S. flag. Would you?
Makes you wonder doesn’t it?

Obamacare

You will hear more about this in the month ahead.
Americans will have to pay more for healthcare because Republicans repealed the Affordable Care Act’s individual mandate, according to President Donald Trump’s former health secretary. Tom Price, who was President Donald Trump’s first head of the Department of Health and Human Services, said at the World Health Care Conference in Washington, D.C., on Tuesday that people looking to buy insurance on government-run marketplaces will have to pay higher prices because of the GOP tax law.

When President Trump and congress took the mandate to own insurance off the books, but did not repeal the whole act, they set this up. If healthy young people don’t opt in, then the costs rise for others. It’s that simple.

Watch Schumer, Pelosi and team turn the rising costs on Republicans for the 2018 elections.
