This smells like a setup, and it looks like the target is Liberals and Progressives -- and the American People.

As this plays out, it'll come down to a vote in the House. Look for the Republicans to be split, while Progressive Democrats who don't want cuts in SS and Medicare will be in a position to cast the deciding votes.

All of the framing in the media is supporting the Radical Right's agenda. This morning, I heard a Democrat not only referring to SS & Medicare as "entitlements," but talking about "entitlement reform" in the deal!

There can no longer be any doubt: The Obama administration and the Democratic Party leadership are 100% behind this deal. They're teaming up with Republicans, and going all-out to deceive Americans, and to make this Raw Deal happen.

The President and the Democrats consider Progressives a greater threat than Republicans. The lines have already been drawn.

We'll see if the Progressive Democrats in the House have the courage to call the bluff, and hold their ground. If they do (and it would be to the astonishment of all), they could force a last-minute clean bill that would simply raise the debt ceiling.

We'll see how this plays out. In the meantime, call your Rep, Senators, and the WH! We're not going to pick up the tab for their party!

Does Trump "Tweet" When His Staff Says No?

Thom plus logo Lev Parnas tells the story of how Donald Trump fired ambassador Marie Yovanovitch at least "four or five times," and that they were afraid that he would "fire her with a tweet." This is not the first time we have heard from White House insiders that the president often gives irrational or stupid orders that his staff then ignores.
