In a great ironic twist, Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-UT) has been promising to lead the investigation of Hillary Clinton even now that Donald Trump has become president, and is now under fire himself for use of an illegal email server.

BASING a SOCIOECONOMIC system on a SECOND RATE SCIENCE FICTION writer

QUOTE blogger 'Argon'

"It seems like the "conservative right wing" consistently use the pejorative "Ivory Tower thinking" when describing "progressive" or "liberal" ideas or policies but how do you describe a socio-economic system based on a couple of SCIENCE FICTION novels; Fountainhead and Atlas Shrugged? Basing social economic policies on an arguably 2nd rate science fiction writer seems to be the height of not just "Ivory Tower" but also Magical thinking."

my ANSWER to TomDorr

Quote TomDorr, "The capitalism of the 1940's, 50's, and 60's made us the envy of the world. We need to examine the strategies that worked then, and return to these roots." Tom do you want to know why, these were the years Americans rejected destructive polarizing corporatist backed right wing governments. From 1934 till 1969 , only one republican was elected president of the United States, only one Tom.

Trump's voter fraud investigation is a way to apply "crosscheck" to states held by Democrats

Trump narcissism is certainly behind his call for an investigation into voter fraud. But as soon as I heard him say there are people who are registered in two or more states, I knew it meant he was going to somehow apply "crosscheck" to the two big states he lost to Clinton, New York and California, states which would never allow "crosscheck" to be used as it was in Republican controlled states like WI, MI, PA, OH, and NC to purge likely Democratic voters.

Mike Pompeo is another fossil fuel plant in the Trump administration

Tillerson and Pruit, and even Rick Perry are obviously fossil fuel plants, but so is Mike Pompeo. Your first clue should be that he's from KS, home of Koch Industries. Second, when I looked up his campaign information at www.opensecrets.org, low and behold, OIL AND GAS is his number one contributing sector. Even better, Koch Industries is his number one donor, and contributed nearly 5 times what his second highest donor did.

BREAKING NEWS: The Mexican President Expresses His Gratitude to the New Administration

“Dear Presidente Trump,

To express our people’s gratitude for your flattering comments over the past year, we have three programs for your new administration.

Trump PROMISED to KILL the FAMILIES of TERRORISTS

Billionaire president Donald Trump defended his promise to kill the innocent family members of Islamic State terrorists.

"We have people that know what is going on, you take a look at the attack in California the other day, there were numerous people, including the mother, that knew what was going on. They saw pipe bomb sitting all over the floor, they saw ammunition all over the place," Trump stated. "They knew exactly what was going on."

The Fascist Takeover: Job One, Get Rid of All Unions Except for the Cops

It started in earnest with Ronald Reagan’s firing of the air traffic controllers union. He doubled down by permitting an unregulated influx of cheap, unregulated foreign labor. He let employers set up factory and farm sanctuaries where they could hire non-citizens with virtual impunity.

Executive orders sources?

I am curious as to how the "production" of these "executive orders" are produced. I am sure the similarity to the ALEC bill mill's activity has some merit to define the rapidity of their arrival. As they are not tweets, I think our new president really doesn't read or contribute to them. I also make this connection because of DJT's Florida golfing buddy... David Koch.

what are the facts about climate change and the deniers

I awould like to ge some folks to read the below statements and tell me how to answer these ideas.

I guess they realize if it's the volcanic activity causing global warming just like the last billion years then they can't use it as an excuse to grab money and power. Do you remember how they said it was becoming an ice age in the 70's and they wanted to dump black soot on the ice? The answer was money and control. If the answer wasn't always money and control I might start to believe the government.

California, my home

I listened and smiled when I heard today that the California Secession movement is getting some national attention. The idea is a nice fantasy, but it would be nearly impossible for it to happen.

TRUMP REOPENS TORTURE CENTRES - reopens notorious torture sites

"An executive order drafted for President Donald Trump will pave the way to bring back Central Intelligence Agency black-site prisons, which were synonymous with torture during the War on Terror after September 11.

A draft of the three-page Detention and Interrogation of Enemy Combatants executive order has been obtained by The New York Times. The order would allow for a black site Detention Program – the holding of terrorism suspects in secret, foreign prison sites outside of domestic US legal jurisdiction – to be revived.

The Perennial GOP Tax Scam

There's something about taxes that elected Republicans know, but most Americans are completely unaware of. It's the reason we keep falling for the perennial GOP tax scam, and Paul Ryan, Mitch McConnell, and their buddies in the White House are getting ready to run this ruse on American working people all over again.
