You do have to wonder how Trump gets the blame for hacking that occurred under the Obama regime.
[Trump] said Obama was warned of possible meddling in September of 2016, but failed to act upon the information. Instead, the former president only spoke about it after the election.
On the other hand, President Trump says he has done more for election security than Obama ever did.
“Everybody understands there was no collusion. There’s no Russia. It was all made up by the Democrats. They’re the ones that colluded with Russia. The Democrats colluded with Russia. And, frankly, the previous administration didn’t do anything about Russia when they knew that they should have.” — President Donald Trump
President Trump signed an executive order last month, ordering sanctions against any foreign official or government caught trying to meddle with the midterms.
I sure think they overplayed their hand.
Unless you are a partisan Democrat, you didn’t fail for that trick again.
“Some of the dumbest things I’ve ever heard said publicly came out of that hearing, and what was it all about…wanting to win too badly,” stated the senator.
When asked about how he thinks Republicans will fair in the upcoming November election, Graham said “everything is breaking our way.”
Not as good as my plan: freeze all spending until the budget is balanced.
The democrats like to say that any reduction in spending is a cut. But if they plan for 5% increase, and they only get a 3% increase, that is not a cut.
Yes, we could balance the budget without any real cuts.
Harvard discriminates against Asian-Americans in admissions the same way it once discriminated against Jews, largely because of Asian-Americans are so successful academically compared to other ethnic groups.

The economy is hot !
According to Democrats, everything bad in the economy during the Obama years was Bush’s fault; and everything great with the economy during the Trump years is due to Obama.
Most employed in two decades; rises 0.8 percent to 7.14 million in economic growth
U.S. employers posted the most jobs in two decades in August, and hiring also reached a record high, fresh evidence that companies are desperate to staff up amid solid economic growth.
Job openings rose a slight 0.8 percent to 7.14 million, the highest on record dating back to December 2000, the Labor Department said Tuesday. That is also far more than the 6.2 million of people who were unemployed that month.
The number of available jobs has swamped the number of unemployed for five straight months. Hiring has been solid, which has pushed down the unemployment rate to a nearly five-decade low of 3.7 percent. Strong demand for workers when so few are out of work may force more companies to raise pay in the coming months.
This is getting good.
Trump needs to double down. This is Warren’s Chappaquiddick.
WASHINGTON – President Donald Trump lashed out at Sen. Elizabeth Warren on Tuesday over DNA test results she released that indicate she has some Native American heritage, saying she is “getting slammed” over what he claimed is “a scam and a lie” despite Warren’s proof.
Trump called on his potential 2020 Democratic challenger to apologize and claimed that even the Cherokee Nation “denies her.”
Warren released the test results Monday in part to push back against Trump’s taunts about her claim of Native American ancestry. The results provide some evidence that a Native American is in her bloodline, though the ancestor probably lived six to 10 generations ago, according to the analysis.
An ancestor six generations removed would make Warren 1/64th Native American while an ancestor as much as 10 generations removed would render the Massachusetts Democrat only 1/1024th Native American, according to Blaine Bettinger, a genealogist and author who specializes in DNA evidence.
Trump, who refers to Warren as “Pocahontas,” seized on the conclusion in a series of tweets Tuesday.
Pocahontas (the bad version), sometimes referred to as Elizabeth Warren, is getting slammed. She took a bogus DNA test and it showed that she may be 1/1024, far less than the average American. Now Cherokee Nation denies her, “DNA test is useless.” Even they don’t want her. Phony!

It gets worse.
Cherokee Nation Secretary of State Chuck Hoskin Jr. said Monday that DNA tests are useless in determining tribal citizenship, which is determined by tribal nations. Hoskin accused Warren of “undermining tribal interests with her continued claims of tribal heritage.”
Warren acknowledged in a tweet Monday that DNA and family history have nothing to do with tribal affiliation or citizenship, which is determined by tribal nations. “I respect the distinction, & don’t list myself as Native in the Senate,” she said.
Thank you to the Cherokee Nation for revealing that Elizabeth Warren, sometimes referred to as Pocahontas, is a complete and total Fraud!

Good for WSU. Bad for UI.
Washington State University Elson S. Floyd College of Medicine has received initial accreditation for graduate medical education.
The initial accreditation allows the college to begin developing and sponsoring residency and fellowship training programs.
Graduate medical education is the three- to seven-year phase of education following graduation from medical school. It prepares physicians for independent practice in a specialty. About 43 percent of medical school graduates will practice in the state where they graduate, but that number jumps to 70 percent when they complete both their medical education and their residency in the same state.

If 1/1024 is what qualifies someone for race-based preferences, then we all do. Thank Elizabeth Warren, of all people, for shooting an arrow through the heart of affirmative action

Ironic? Poetic? Or coincidental?
President Trump said that he’d give $1M to a charity of Elizabeth Warren’s choice if she were Native American.
I have a proposal for the President: since she’s now discovered that she’s 1/1024th Native American, he out to give her 1/1024th of $1M = $976.
And Warren should return 1023/1024th of her past salaries: either to Harvard or to the Cherokee Nation for Native American scholarships.
They really want to destroy everything that humanity has gained in 150 years.

Earliest snowfall in at least 120 years, since 1898.
Wait, what? Wasn’t snowfall supposed to be a thing of the past?
Measurable snowfall is pretty rare during the month of October in KC; only having occurred 7 times since records began. However, yesterday we broke a new record by measuring the earliest snowfall (0.2") which broke the previous record set in 1898. pic.twitter.com/euz0Rafmas

If these were record highs, they would have made the news as confirming global warming.
Since these are record lows, they show only weather anomalies.
(above) displays new IRS data that were released recently for tax year 2016. Reflecting the steep progressivity of federal income taxes, the share (and dollar amount) of total federal income taxes paid by the top 1% of American taxpayers has been almost equal to the share (and dollar amount) of taxes paid by the entire bottom 95% of taxpayers. For 2016, the 1.4 million Americans in the top 1% of taxpayers earned 19.7% of Adjusted Gross Income (AGI) and paid $538 billion in federal income taxes or 37.3% of all income taxes collected. The 134 million tax filers in the bottom 95% of Americans by income earned 64.8% of AGI and paid $602 billion in federal income taxes in 2016, representing 41.8% of taxes collected.
