For Conference Chair Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA) and other party members the Republican “Six Big Ideas” plan is hanging in the balance. Amongst Trumps never ending drama Republicans see distraction as the new normal. The political climate demonstrates Congress nor can the Executive Branch accomplish much in a distraction laden environment.

In fact a republican house floor sweeper was overheard (listening device left from the Obama Administration) saying there’s a lot more shit in these corridors for me to pick up with this new administration.

Republicans want to focus on “The American Dream”, ” National Security”, “Bailouts”, “Executive Power”, “Obamacare Replacement” and “Tax Reform.” With this new agenda in hand Republicans have created a “Better Way Booklet” for all Americans to read and pledge too.

On The American Dream, Republicans want lower wage work and lower wage jobs expanded, to increase crime legislation and remove voting rights, reduce school programs, increase national debt and demand taxpayers pay for it.

On National Security, Republicans want to give more terrorists weapons, fight more proxy wars, create more terrorist threats and reduce freedom around the world.

On the Economy and Bailouts, Republicans want to remove regulations, expand coal and oil usage, increase privatizing profits and nationalizing loss, but wait there’s more, they want to increase student debt, remove net neutrality laws and change tort law to benefit corporations.

On Executive Power, Republicans want limited power when democrats are in office and expanded powers when Republicans are in office, except Donald Trump.

On Obamacare, Republicans want more sick and dying, according to an undisclosed source House Republicans can reduce the budget, improve environmental conditions by allowing more Americans to die that don’t have health coverage.

On Tax Reform, Republicans want more complexity, corporate and executive write offs, no more mortgage deductions and a flat tax. Maybe this plan is a Democrat and Republican cooperative, it resembles their actions over the last few decades? More can be found at https://www.gop.gov/six-big-ideas-better-way-agenda/

Crooked Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) Chairman found to be linked to Russia

Picture of SEC Chairman Jay Clayton

Controversy swirls as recent Whitehouse appointed SEC Chairman Jay Clayton’s links to Russia compromise SEC independence.  Senator Catherine Cortez Masto (D-Nev) sent a scolding letter to SEC Chairman Clayton regarding her concerns of his Russian ties. Masto reiterated continued recusing of oneself from decisions because conflicts of interest exists only helps Russia’s cause not U.S. interests.

In a replied letter Clayton said “the Senators concerns are understandable but he in no way will put the interests of the US over that of Russia.” On this I’ve been clear said Clayton, adding this is why the Whitehouse chose me to be SEC Chairman.

In a press release President Trump said Clayton’s Wall Street experience, his aiding of Goldman Sachs and Valeant Pharmaceuticals profiteering during the financial crisis was something to behold and emulate because it was done legally and with bipartisan support.

In a reply to the Presidents press release Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) and Congresswoman Jan Schakowsky of Illinois said we need to make Wall Street and Russia happy as they are the future that’ll lead the US out of its current misery and lack of leadership.

Tensions Rise as the Oversight & Government Reform Committee document requests are denied by the White House

April 27, 2017 Ranking member of the Oversight Committee Rep. Elijah E. Cummings produces additional documentation highlighting former National Security Advisor Lt. General Michael Flynn’s disregard for the Emoluments Clause of the Constitution.

Produced evidence shows Flynn accepted payment from U.S. adversaries Russia & Turkey without disclosing the receipts as required by the Emoluments Clause. When applying for security clearance Flynn was obligated to disclose foreign government recent contacts and payments. Despite various U.S. intelligence warnings Flynn has broken the law and could be subjected to 5 years imprisonment and more for these and other transgressions.     

In a noted letter (2014) the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) warned Flynn about his obligations regarding the Emoluments Clause. They also emphasized if laws were broken and he was sent to prison they couldn’t protect him from Bubba if he were to drop the soap.

Flynn is protected from investigations as the White House won’t release requested documentation to the Oversight Committee. In a secretly recorded message Flynn disclosed himself and the President have received funds from foreign agents, he further went on to say if the Clintons can do it, why can’t I?

Danger looms in the Korean Peninsula says Vice President Pence

April 25, 2017 from South Korea, Vice President Pence gave a message of solidarity to acting President Hwang Kyo-ahn of the Republic of Korea. Saying on behalf of the American People, President Trump and himself the “U.S. is committed to the safety and security of South Korea so long as the U.S is allowed to continue exploiting South Korea for resources and is allowed to maintain strategically placed military installations on South Korea’s soil to the detriment of the government and its people”. 

Vice President Pence continued he and the President are sure China will intervene to have the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK) leader Kim Jong-un stand down from the escalation hostilities President Trump’s administration continues to instigate. In a media questioning session after Pence’s speech a reporter asked “what if China intervention doesn’t occur or is unsuccessful in deescalating tension, then what?”

Vice President Pence said “South Korea, Japan and North Korea can kiss their collective asses goodbye if deescalation doesn’t occur immediately”. The goal is to convince Kim Jong-un no more medium or long-range missile tests are to be executed because the U.S. said so.  More can be found at http://www.voanews.com/a/thaad-deployment-begins-amid-increasing-tension-between-china-south-korea/3752703.html
