Trump proposes new budget.

Vox says it cuts Medicare, Medicade and Social Security.

According to Vox Trump promised not to cut these three.

How do you cut Medicare and Social Security?
Cuts or slows the rate of increase? It's Vox, you know.

Trump’s campaign head for 100 days, Paul Manafort sentenced to a total of 7 year 1 month. He is 70.

Interesting the difference in approach by the two judges one appointed by a Democrat and the other by a Republican. One lenient, the other throw the book, your only sorry cause you got caught approach.

Apparently now Meuller can release his report.

Supposedly this week. Don’t hold your breath.

Congress can do it by passing a law. Some time within the next 20 or 30 years, they have to cut both and/or government pension benefits, to avoid following in Venezuela's economic foot steps. You can thank the greatest debtor generation.
That’s what I thought Congress is the only one who can reduce benefits.

Trump grounds 737 Max planes.

Fake news below:

Attorney Generals from 12 states plan to file suit in the 9 th district. Congresswoman Shelia Jackson Lee has submitted a bill to block Trump’s illegal move as there is not an emergency.

In a clear case of piling on. Manafort charged in New York State for something as soon as Federal sentencing completed.

In other news not reported by MSM Closed door testimony by FBI’s Lisa Page released. FBI told by Obama Justice Dept not to charge Hillary for her home server.

Senate rejects Trump’s Border Emergency.

Sounds like a bunch of Senators need to be replaced in 2020.

Trump signs first veto to protect US from foreign invaders.

Majority of congressmen and senators do not want to protect our borders from foreign invaders.

I know who was right. 2020 will show us who will lose their jobs over this.

Trump is blamed for a mass shooting of innocent Muslims in far away New Zealand. Press even criticized his simple condolences to the country.

Top Obama aide praises Kushner-Trump high-tech drive
Former President Barack Obama’s top tech adviser has praised the Trump administration’s push to modernize government IT, singling out Jared Kushner’s expanding bid to make Uncle Sam much more customer friendly.



He explained that changes made to government websites, including at Veterans Affairs and Agriculture, have been a big help to consumers, vendors, farmers, and veterans.
The dental plan associated with Tricare that I had since I retired from the USAF was recently discontinued, and we were given the option to sign up to FEDVIP (or something like that, I might have the acronym screwed up). I was VERY surprised at how easy it was to navigate the new website, compare plans, and sign up. It was actually helpful, easy to use, and quick.

Trump threatens Saturday Night Live with federal investigation.

Probably not the smartest move since their are a lot of things that need investigating that aren’t protected by the 1st Amendment.

CNN decides to not mince words:

Something is terribly wrong with Donald Trump.

I guess they have decided to go back to the 25 Amendment playbook since the Russian collusion thing isn’t working.

They haven’t realized you can’t cry wolf (Trump) or say the sky is falling ( global warming ) before people aren’t believing a thing you say.

Who cares what Vanity Fair, CNN or any other prog socialist fake news organization says about the President? He has even won over all but the most stringent Never Trump crowd. Those that remain are becoming less relevant and listened to every day.
The left lies about everything. Truth is a liberal value, and truth is a conservative value, but it has never been a left-wing value. People on the left say whatever advances their immediate agenda. Power is their moral lodestar; therefore, truth is always subservient to it. - Dennis Prager
