A Simple Poem for a Simpleton

These tiny hands are mine.
I use them all the time.
To grab the things I couldn't,
And lots of things I shouldn't.

--With apologies to my dear late Grandma.

Appreciation Thread for Washington Post, NYT, and even CNN lately

Speaking truth against the power. In my opinion, these three "old school" media outlets have been doing a tremendous job for our Republic, exposing TREASON.

Chaffetz asks White House about sensitive info at Mar-a-Lago, says door is open to Flynn invest ...

Source: Salt Lake Tribune

Washington ē House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Jason Chaffetz on Tuesday demanded the White House answer a litany of questions about President Donald Trump's handling of classified materials after news reports of him using the middle of a country club restaurant to discuss a North Korean missile test.

Chaffetz also said that he may launch an investigation into Trump's now-former national security adviser, Michael Flynn, who resigned Monday night and admitted misleading White House officials about his conversations with the Russian ambassador to the United States before Trump took office.


While Chaffetz has been criticized by Democrats and some constituents for not looking more closely at the Trump administration, Tuesday saw a new push by the Utah Republican to review actions by the White House. Chaffetz said in an interview that he is taking his role seriously as Congress' top government watchdog even if critics don't think it's enough.

"I expect them to continue to pepper me with those questions. That's legitimate," Chaffetz said, noting that he loves "Democrats' newfound interest" in probing the White House after eight years of President Barack Obama.

I will believe it when I see it, but if both chambers open investigations, this could get ugly for #notmypresident pretty quick.

I'm not from Washington, though I have family there, but listening to the governor of this great state on CNN right now -- "proud that the light of liberty is going out from Seattle tonight" -- I'm ready to start talking up this guy for 2020. Thoughts??

From WaPo:

"Next week, Bernie Sanders and Ted Cruz will square off in a debate on CNN over the future of the Affordable Care Act. There will be a lot of chatter about how Sanders was critical of the ACA during last yearís Dem primary.

But Sanders is a very effective advocate for the law, despite his belief that it didnít go far enough. And this may have the salutary effect of increasing engagement on the part of the left ó and Sanders supporters ó in the fight to save Obamacare."

From The Hill:

"Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) and Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) will go to battle next week in a debate over the future of ObamaCare.

Sanders and Cruz, who both ran for their party's nomination in the 2016 presidential race, will square off in a debate airing on CNN next Tuesday, Feb. 7 at 9 p.m.

The debate will be moderated by CNNís Jake Tapper and Dana Bash. The debate comes as Republicans in Congress craft a plan to repeal and replace former President Barack Obamaís signature healthcare law.

A promo for the debate aired during CNN's town hall with House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, and news quickly spread on social media."
