Amerika First

Born To Run The Numbers twists Trump's mantra and exposes it for what it is: deceitful, disingenuous, and now treasonous:

http://www.borntorunthenumbers.com/2017/05/amerika-first.html

Excerpt:

"Call it Amerika First, the final and most insidious perversion of Donald Trump’s promise. In this case, the promise to place America First is intentionally undermined by secret conversations intended to keep America in the dark about private negotiations with a rival who has demonstrated their intent to sabotage our democracy. America first? Not exactly. The Trump team wants to give information to the Russians first, and keep it from Americans as long as possible. Right now the Trump White House looks like floating pond scum obscuring the view, making sure Amerika is the last to know."

The Clock is Ticking... And This May All Go Down Faster Than We Think.

Born To Run The Numbers on the appointment of Robert Mueller as Special Prosecutor:

http://www.borntorunthenumbers.com/2017/05/the-clock-just-started-and-this-may-all.html

Excerpt:

Why might this unfold at heretofore unheard of speed? The answer lies in the reality that the impeachment and conviction of a president is one part legal, one part shamelessly political, and one part purely personal. The outcome will involve as many off-camera human judgments, opinions, and political calculations as it will smoking gun evidence and courtroom drama. But the most important point is this: once it is clear to Republicans in contested districts and states that an impeachable offense has been committed and perceive Donald Trump to be radioactive waste, it will be in the interest of all parties – even Donald Trump – to get this all behind us. Fast."

Trump's Comey-Phobia is a Symptom of a Bigger Disease

Born to Run the Numbers on the Comey firing and its broader implications:

http://www.borntorunthenumbers.com/2017/05/trumps-comey-phobia-symptom-of-bigger.html

Excerpt:

"It is time to consider the possibility that when Trump, the candidate, was constantly screaming about how 'our government doesn’t work,' he may have been referring to the part that we generally call 'democracy.'"

Republicans Take the Hypocritical Oath on Healthcare

Born to Run the Numbers looks at the hypocrisy of the Republican House on Healthcare:

http://www.borntorunthenumbers.com/2017/05/republicans-take-hypocritical-oath-on.html

If you actually read the Hippocratic Oath that doctors must take, and you read the oath of office that our Congressional Representatives must take, you realize that the House Republican healthcare bill is just a Hypocritical Oath.

Excerpt from this article:
"What might be of interest to Republicans is to look at healthcare from a different point of view, a perspective that is not informed solely and wholly by Mitch McConnell’s singular life goal of eradicating the legacy of Barack Obama. Perhaps Republicans could look at health care from the perspective of those who provide it.

Interestingly, doctors are also administered an “oath of office." The difference is that doctors, unlike our politicians, actually read the words and take their oath seriously. Most people think that the Hippocratic Oath is centered on the idea of “do no harm.” In fact, those words do not appear at any point in the text.

What does appear, however, are these vows: 'I will remember that I do not treat a fever chart, a cancerous growth, but a sick human being, whose illness may affect the person's family and economic stability. My responsibility includes these related problems, if I am to care adequately for the sick.'

Yes, doctors are bound to reflect on the humanity of the persons they treat, the potential economic burden of their care, and to be vigilant about how that treatment affects the patient’s life and the lives of all those he or she holds dear. Wouldn’t it be something if our Republican representatives held themselves to such a standard? If they arrived at their decisions based on the impact on the constituents rather than on the donations of those who fund their re-election campaigns?"
