Steve Bannon, the former executive chairman of the Breitbart News Network, as Trump’s “senior counselor and strategist.” This year, Breitbart hosted stories with titles such as “1001 Reasons Why Global Warming Is So Totally Over in 2016,” despite the fact that 2016 is now overwhelmingly on track to be the hottest year on record, beating 2015, which beat 2014, which beat 2013. Such stories do more than spread disinformation. Their purpose is the creation of an alternative reality—one in which scientific evidence is a sham—so that hyperbole and fearmongering can divide and conquer the public.

Note to Zap. Every time there is a change in the residents of the White House, websites, comment lines, pamphlets, personnel, etc. are changed. I am sure the website will soon be up with his pledge to kill all puppies, eliminate Medicare, Social Security, make sure college costs double, choke us all with pollution from China, and force every woman to stand closer to the sink while doing dishes.

Things move slower in Canada so you may have to wait a few months to catch up but Calm down. Things will be fine.

If you really want to help, open up your doors to the malcontents that can't grasp the idea of a Trump presidency.

Your are all for science when it supports your agenda. But not so much when it doesn't.

Very first thing that Trump signed raised mortgages on the middle class by a small amount every month on FHA loans. Affected about 500000 to 700000. Why was this so important to be number one on his list? Why not start on the 1% where the real money is. His cabinet for starters. or he could look at this list:

I thought we had already been through this eariler. You neglected to confirm.

First step was to raise mortgages on the middle class. Today he froze all wages of Government workers (middle class). Bet any of them are glad that they voted for him. Waiting for Paul Ryans and Mitch McConnells statements on TPP and NAFTA.

Had the rate reduction gone into effect? If not, Trump did nothing to increase their existing mortgage payments.

Regardless of your continued nit-picking, Trump ran on the promise he was going to reverse Obama's executive orders. He kept his promise and did just that.

Tell me Diane, why are you so intent on making the 1% more wealthy at your expense? That is all that Trump and the Republican Party is going to do.

The correct answer of course is no. It did not raise the mortgage price one ¢.

That said, not easing the availability of FHA mortgages may save many who should not buy a first time house because their incoming monies and the outgoing payments don't add up to anything but a reposession down the line thus saving the taxpayers money.

Think fannie mae and that sack of s**t Barney Frank.

What does not changing the cost of a FHA loan have to do with the 1%?

Here I will put it in Fox News terms for you Diane. They use small easy to read words. About $37 per month per home in cost. So the very first thing he did was go after peanut from the middle to lower class. Why not the 1% who make obscene amounts of money as pointed out in post 5. Because his whole cabinet is in the 1%.

Can you not answer the question stated 3 times now:

@11

You appear to be so enraged at your landslide loss Nov. 8 that you spend your day twisting stories to suit your meme. Trying out for your own hate leftie/socialist radio show?

  1. Trump did NOTHING to add to the costs of a FHA loan. Understand that and we can proceed.
  2. What were you looking for from Trump? A tax on those people who actually have a down payment and can afford to purchase, own, and maintain their home? Maybe that $221,000,000 taxpayer dollars that Obama side door slid to the Palestinians in the last few minutes of his disastrous term could have bought a few houses for those without any income. How progressive of me.
  3. As for the 1% you seem so overly obsessed about. You should have figured out long ago that I personally don’t fret over someone else’s wealth. I was raised to get out and work for my needs, not bitch about the guy up the block because he has more than I do, nor do I expect him/her to pay for my purchases because "that's fair", which dramatically points out the differences between leftie/socialists and most of working America.

1, Do you not read the articles?

2. Isreal is set for $38 billion over 10 years. They have single payer healthcare and we do not. The $221 million for impoverished hungry children did not go. You should keep informed.

3. For the 4th time: Tell me Diane, why are you so intent on making the 1% more wealthy at your expense? That is all that Trump and the Republican Party is going to do.

Don't need to read an article to know Trump did nothing to raise the FHA rate. Neither do you.

Move to Israel

See post #12 and re-read my response #3 in that post. It is the same answer I have been giving for months. You can stop asking that question and I may excuse you for your dementia.
