      If the Dems demand 30 hours of debate for both Mulvaney and Pruitt, the rest of those who advanced will not get confirmed until after the Senate comes back from taking a week off!!! So we are talking Monday, February 27, would be the earliest that things will start to pick up again.

    Lindsay Lohan Wants Meeting with Trump to Discuss Syrian Refugees

    You Seriously can’t make this stuff up! 🙂


    • TheseTruths says:

      Actually, I give her points for wanting to talk with the president instead of just making dumb videos. I’ve often thought the celebrities who hate him should talk with him directly. It probably would have ben easier after he won the election and before he was sworn in, but at least if he meets with her she will hear his point of view unfiltered.


      • Sandra says:

        Didn’t she convert to Islam or something? For a few weeks at least? She’s a nut. Trump should not waste any time with her. There might be some other high profile celebs that would be good for him to meet with, but not her. She has no credibility within even her own ciricles.

    Burlington is the latest retailer to drop Ivanka Trump’s brand online.
    The change comes amid news of several retailers dropping the first daughter’s line in the last two weeks, including Nordstrom, Neiman Marcus, and Gilt.


    Ivanka Trump Sales Increasing:
    While Nordstrom has claimed that the brand has not been doing well, reality says otherwise when it comes to overall sales. According to G3’s 2016 annual statement, ticker $GIII, the manufacturer and distributor of Ivanka’s clothing line, the brand is doing quite well—enjoying a $29.4m bump in sales to $100m.


    This is the difference between a real boycott by people who actually work for their money and spend it vs. the threat of a boycott by people who pretend they have money in their wallet. Macy’s, Kellogg’s, Target, etc. learning the lesson the hard way. And soon Burlington!

    Update, if any of you twitter, @JohnCornyn is getting a lot of negative tweets, from trolls and naysayers, really could use some positive encouragement on his site …if you can.

    @GovHuckabee he is seemingly happy and jolly these days, his tweets are humerous here lately. I think he is “giddy” that Prime Minister Netanyahu is heading this way.

    and, back to John Cornyn, he provided this link which shows who all has voted for Trump Team

    BREAKING NEWS FEB 13 2017, 11:19 PM ET
    Michael Flynn Resigns as National Security Adviser/

    “Michael Flynn abruptly resigned as President Donald Trump’s national security adviser Monday night, hours after it was learned that the Justice Department informed the White House that it believed he could be subject to blackmail.”


    Consider the source/ don’t trust NBC/


  25. BAM says:

    It sounded like Joseph Co. Kellogg was appointed interim replacement. Hubby has radio and TV on so I’m not positive about the name.


  26. Katherine McCoun says:

    Sad to hear about Flynn. I think we’ll of him and am disappointed to see him leave.

    Interesting article on Flynn by the American Conservative a few days ago/

    Iran Hawks Take the White House/

    Inspired by fringe theories about Islamic civilization, Michael Flynn is leading Trump down a dangerous path.

    By PHILIP GIRALDI • February 9, 2017/

    “The United States is adding new sanctions on Iran over that country’s alleged misdeeds, and nearly all of those allegations are either out-and-out lies or half-truths. It has a familiar ring to it, as demonizing Tehran has been rather more the norm than not since 1979, a phenomenon that has included fabricated claims that the Iranians killed American soldiers after the U.S.’s armed interventions in Afghanistan and Iraq. This time around, the administration focused on the perfectly legal Iranian test of a non-nuclear-capable, medium-range ballistic missile and the reported attack on what was initially claimed to be a U.S. warship by allegedly Iranian-backed Yemeni Houthi fighters. The ship was later revealed to be a Saudi frigate.

    Donald Trump’s national-security adviser, Michael T. Flynn, “officially” put Iran “on notice” while declaring that “The Trump Administration will no longer tolerate Iran’s provocations that threaten our interests. The days of turning a blind eye to Iran’s hostile and belligerent actions toward the United States and the world community are over.”

    On the level that Trump is on – difficult – but admire his clear, decisive actions in dealing w/ matters… how much more can one ask?
