One last try .... make those phones ring in D.C. ..... call republican senators now

We're expecting a Senate vote in a few hours. Sign on to oppose this terrible tax bill, then call the Senate Switchboard at (202) 224-3121 and tell your senator to vote NO!

Give your zip code and make sure to tell him/her why the tax bill is bad.

Lock him up!

**********

On Friday morning, former national security adviser Michael Flynn was taken into federal custody for making false statements to the FBI. It’s the latest stunning twist in the ongoing Russia investigation led by Special Counsel Robert Mueller.

According to court documents, Flynn has been charged with “willfully and knowingly” making “false, fictitious and fraudulent statements” to the FBI regarding his conversations with senior Russian diplomat and former ambassador to the United States Sergey Kislyak. CBS News reported that Flynn turned himself in on Friday morning and was subsequently processed and scheduled for a federal court hearing, reportedly before U.S. District Judge Rudolph Contreras at 10:30 a.m. ET.

He is expected to plead guilty.

Trump July 2016 no contacts with Russia

27 July 2016
In an interview held at his golf course in Doral, Florida, Donald Trump tells a local CBS news channel there are no ties between his campaign and Russian officials.

“I can tell you,” he says, “I think if I came up with that, they’d say, ‘Oh, it’s a conspiracy theory, it’s ridiculous.’ I mean I have nothing to do with Russia. I don’t have any jobs in Russia. I’m all over the world but we’re not involved in Russia.”

The Byrds, "He was a friend of mine."



“If by a "Liberal" they mean someone who looks ahead and not behind, someone who welcomes new ideas without rigid reactions, someone who cares about the welfare of the people-their health, their housing, their schools, their jobs, their civil rights and their civil liberties-someone who believes we can break through the stalemate and suspicions that grip us in our policies abroad, if that is what they mean by a "Liberal", then I'm proud to say I'm a "Liberal.” JFK
