Chicago Cops Live Up to Their Reputation

Bad enough that United decided to bump four seated passengers on a short hop for Chicago to Kentucky. Bad enough it was not for other passengers but for 4 United employees who United at the last minute wanted to get to Louisville fast. Even worse followed when only 3 passengers accepted offers to leave the flight.

No, what was the worst thing about it was that a Chicago cop treated a 69 year old Asian American physician like.....well like Chicago cops treat people in Chicago every day. The Obama DOJ summed the Chicago Police Department business as usual in a report from Jan. 13, 2017:

No Mr. Trump, the Ruling Makes Us Look Strong

America is strong, and the Constitution cannot be usurped by an ignorant racist buffoon like yourself and your advisors. You make America weak by attacking our courts, this court ruling shows our strength. You would seek to illicitly project your weakness as national weakness. That is a contemptible fabrication.

Trump Administration, Cyprus & Putin Billionaires

Trump's fantastic real estate deal in 2006 with Russian billionaire  Dmitry Rybolovlev:

“Maison de l’Amitie,” or the House of Friendship. It was the trophy of a Boston-area magnate, until he lost his fortune in 2004. That’s when Donald Trump scooped it up. After paying $41 million for the place in November 2004, Trump called it “the finest piece of land in Florida, and probably the U.S.” ......Trump had no intention of living there. He intended to flip it for a quick—and huge—profit. His initial asking price, less than two years after buying it, was $125 million. By the time Trump listed the property, in early 2006, the real estate market was already cooling off.... In the summer of 2008, Trump found a solution to his problem in the form of one of the world’s hundred richest men: a 41-year-old Russian billionaire named Dmitry Rybolovlev....

TRUMP: Planning US Invasiion of Syria

Scalia Rises from the Grave, Age 49

Only took less than 2 weeks and the Republicans have risen Scalia from the grave.

Not only alive, but 25 years younger. Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch. Son of Anne Gorsuch Burford who tried under Reagan to gut the EPA.

Gorsuch, ready and eager to guide America to the right for 30 or more years.

DHS Border Agents Defy Court Orders

The spineless one, Senator Chuck Schumer (D-NY), as might be expected, tweeted everything is OK.  He talked to DHS head John Kelly and Kelly said so.

Senator Schumer needs to get out to JFK or Dulles airport and start taking names, specifically the name of who is in command of border control.

Apparently court orders are NOT being followed. 'Official resistance' to court orders is reported across the nation and in NYC.

The situation is described as 'Kafkaesque'.

Trump, Franken vs. Senate GOP

Forget for a moment all the issues surrounding the Keystone pipeline legality, that it will likely create few permanent jobs or that it may serve solely as a way to export Canadian oil and is not moving dirty tar sand oil for US use.

Look at the hypocrisy of the Senate GOP in 2015 on where the steel would come from, and how Trump takes the 'not rocket science' use US steel side of Democrats on this today. 

Obamacare: Never was about Health Care for the GOP

Obamacare was never about health care for Republicans. That's why they still don't have a health care plan of their own. Republicans don't do health care, because the 1% doesn't need one. For Republicans, it was always about Obamacare taxes, on the rich. Taxes which fund health insurance subsidies for the poor and the middle class. Eliminating those taxes is job one this week. And don't ever believe the GOP will ever pass any tax to replace those funds. The health care industry is in 'disarray' with how this comes out.

Traits of Despotism, Republican Party and Venezuela

I was reading about the collapse of the Venezuelan health system here, and noted almost all the comments were gloating right wing Hillary, Obama haters who had no grasp of how similar the methods of the totalitarian Chavez/Maduro government of Venezuela are to those of the GOP.  And how dissimilar they are to the actions of the 8 years of the Obama administration. Including his in rescuing this nation from the last Republican engineered US economic collapse in 2007-8. Obama's actions, which were unambiguously opposed by the GOP, the Party that brought on the 'great recession' on their watch.
