At what point will the "present both sides" format used by CNN, MSNBC

be retired with respect to this so called president? Will they still invite Jeffrey Lord on to explain Trump's side when minority groups are being rounded up or prevented from voting, etc? At what point will the truth be presented ALONE, without the injection of dangerous spin that creates an atmosphere of confusion or complacency?

Bernie's comments annoy me and you may not like Hillary, but we're being baited

Can we all agree that Hillary, Bernie, and most democrats/progressives have good intentions? Great! We are not enemies! If you're at the point where you think we are enemies, it's time to step back, take a break, and let some of the fake news wear off.

If Bernie/Hillary or some other well-meaning Democrat says something stupid, we should be able to discuss it, laugh, roll our eyes and move on. Yes we have different methods and priorities and timetables. But we can work together as we've always done.

Someone (in Russia?) is having a LOT of fun riling up both sides and eating popcorn as the fireworks erupt. That thought annoys me more than anything Bernie could ever say or do because there is so much at stake. If we don't get this right starting this year in the runoffs through 2018, it's over for our movement, and maybe for the country as well. The end!

What if Trump doesn't include *all* of his business dealings on his taxes?

Is it possible that he did some transactions, especially foreign transactions, under the table? I ask because a lot of people are convinced that his taxes would show the truth of his Russian ties.

This is a guy who was operating a charity without certification, and the only reason why he was caught was because of investigations that occurred before the election.

tRump is a criminal and he's surrounded by criminal accountants, doctors, lawyers, etc.--- I think he's hiding his returns not just because of what's on them, but due to what's not on them. My guess is that his returns will show that he's not worth any where near 10 billion, and that he didn't pay his fair share of taxes for years...but the smoking bomb will be business transactions that we know took place but aren't included in his tax returns (like that Palm Beach house that was sold to a Russian for twice what he paid).

Is Germany now the "leader of the free world?" And is that potentially a good thing?

Merkel has already issued at least 2 warnings to trump, first about protectionism and now the Muslim ban. Those are the type of warnings that U.S. presidents used to give to other nations.

It might take some time to sink in, and it's true that we still have the world's greatest arsenal, but as far as leadership, I think that period has officially ended. Will repubs and others admit it?

Also, let's be clear, trump is dangerous and will not keep us safe, but when the smoke clears and he's replaced, is it potentially a good thing if we're no longer front and center on the world stage?

Don't be naive, the "insurance for all" bit is meant to throw cold water on upcoming protests

So instead of steely resolve, the naive among us are now hoping that Trump will bring us single payer. Maybe if that's true, we don't have to protest. Right? Wrong!

Don't be naive. Trump is a con artist. He already fooled millions with the wall lie, don't let "single payer" become the next carrot he uses to gain blind support.

All you have to do is look at who he nominated for Department of Health and Human Services:

Tom Price opposes even more of the Affordable Care Act than Trump. For example, Price's proposed health care overhaul does not require insurers to cover pre-existing conditions, a policy Trump has repeatedly pledged to maintain.

Price has also backed moves to reform and cut Medicare benefits, an entitlement program for the nation's elderly that Trump has pledged to protect.

Outside of his conservative economic record, others may find his social stances a major issue. Chief among these for the HHS job: Price is anti-abortion, pro-gun rights and opposed to the Obamacare provision mandating birth control access.

Did anyone watch the CNN - Paul Ryan Townhall Trainwreck?

The very first question:

An entrepreneur and former life-long Republican explained to House Speaker Paul Ryan that he was against Obamacare and then he got diagnosed with a terminal, but curable cancer. "I want to thank President Obama from the bottom of my heart"

I think Jake Tapper was just as disgusted with Paul Ryan as I was.

Arrest warrant issued for Georgia cop who lied about being shot by a black man



Authorities in Jackson said they will issue a warrant for the arrest of a police officer who allegedly lied about being shot by an unidentified suspect only described as a black male.

The Georgia Bureau of Investigation issued warrants for the arrest of Officer Sherry Hall. Hall is accused of issuing false statements and writings and concealment of facts, tampering with evidence, interfering with government property and violation of oath.

Hall reportedly then fired two shots into the wood line near Camellia Court using the Glock .22 issued to her by the Jackson Police Department.

Records show Hall has also been previously charged with a felony. She was charged with first-degree criminal damage to property after an arrest in Spalding County in the 90s and received a five year probation. GBI didn't initially know about that Glock .2

Now Ivanka is claiming that her father "sacrificed greatly" to enter the political arena

*cough* Bob Barr... nt

He is left economically, but not socially

That's my conclusion based on actually listening to him on various shows.
