        If Trump hadn’t won they’d be making lots of noise about repealing Ocare, while passing budgets to support it. They missed their Hollywood calling, and under Trump’s scrutiny, they can’t pretend any more.

      Hopefully Dr. Adams will be confirmed quickly after the Congress gets back from vacation and before the August recess.

      President Donald Trump nominated Dr. Jerome Adams, Indiana’s health commissioner, to be the next surgeon general.

      Adams, if confirmed, would replace Dr. Vivek Murthy, the former acting surgeon general. President Trump fired Murthy without notice. Murthy was a fervent supporter of Obamacare.

      Vice President Mike Pence appointed Dr. Adams to his post when he was governor of Indiana. Adams will serve as another appointed health official who previously worked with Pence. Seema Verma, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid (CMS) Administrator, worked with Pence as a health consultant to reform Indiana’s Medicaid program.

      The surgeon general nominee is a trained anesthesiologist and has served as a strong advocate to address the nation’s opioid crisis.

        Does anyone find it strange that Pence keeps promoting his friends? How come President does not choose more of his? Just wondering 😳


        • Consider the possibility that POTUS asks Pence for recommendations. POTUS and A-team then vet the recommended candidate. POTUS either accepts or rejects the candidate.
          I really believe it’s that simple and straightforward.

    Eric Holder Sends Ominous Late Night Tweet To “Career DOJ/FBI” Employees

    by Tyler Durden
    Jun 30, 2017 3:57 PM

    Eric Holder, Obama’s former Attorney General and a man who recently hinted at an interest in pursuing a 2020 bid for the White House, issued a rather ominous warning to the “career men & women” of the DOJ/FBI last night saying that their “actions and integrity will be unfairly questioned” before calling upon them to “be prepared, be strong.”

    “To the career men & women at DOJ/FBI: your actions and integrity will be unfairly questioned. Be prepared, be strong. Duty. Honor. Country.”

    List of Attorney General Eric Holder Scandals/
    By Mark Wachtler

    “September 28, 2014. Washington. (ONN) When Attorney General Eric Holder announced his retirement this week, many Americans cheered. Few government officials in American history have been tainted by as much corruption, criminal activity and scandal as Eric Holder. A darling of the Clinton and Obama administrations, he was the teflon bureaucrat. Never elected to a single office by the public, Eric Holder used political connections and backroom deals to rise to the highest levels of our government.”

    Our view of Eric Holder here at Whiteout Press is no secret. We’re convinced he and President Obama have had a secret deal in which each would protect members of the Executive Branch, including each other, from being brought to justice. And as we’ve seen for six years now, both men have risen above the law to commit repeated acts that would have landed any other people in any other time straight in prison. We’ve often wondered what would happen when either or both men were no longer protected from criminal prosecution by the other’s powers. It looks like we may finally find out.

      Collins wants to work so badly with the Democrats because she doesn’t want to repeal the bill, she wants to touch it up here and there. If the GOP “works” with Dems, it will be a much more moderate bill, and it will not have any repeal measures included in it. The Dems just want to “fix” the current bill.

    Attorney General Jeff Sessions — SCOTUS rejected the narrative of the left on the travel ban, gave Trump a great victory

    Love this guy.

    Trump, Sessions and Rosenstein were put in bad spots because of Muh Russia. But, as Mika just found out, Team Trump is back on the march against the forces of evil. And SCOTUS got it right on the travel ban.

    Also, Sarah Sanders off-camera briefing today. Not much here. Only one question on Mika. That story is over, as Trump knew it would be.


    I was certain that Trump deliberately put Mika on blast for a calculated purpose. I am now even more certain of that given the scandalous National Enquirer piece that just came out supposedly chronicling the Mika-Joe affair.

    Recall, Trump is friends with the National Enquirer publisher, I believe.

    It’s good to be the president.

    One other piece of commentary from the “had to happen department.”

    In the last week or so, you have seen a number of House members going on media outlets basically pushing the Senate (GOP) to pass health care. Essentially being unpaid members of the Trump communications team.

    And that is because these House GOP members are now tied to Trump and on the hook with their AHCA vote. They are fully co-opted now on this issue and, truly, to the full Trump Agenda.

    This is what we need to accomplish with the GOP Senate. Then Trump will be in complete command.

    If we can get health care passed and get the Senate GOP on the hook and tied with Trump, then everything will happen rapidly for the good. Everything will snowball.

    Trump has done a fantastic job of co-opting various people who were previous opponents. The best way to get people to do what you want is to make them realize that doing so is in their best interest.

    Hence, Trump hires McConnell’s wife, Newt’s wife and McCain’s wife. That’s just smart strategy.

    And now the House GOP realizes that if Trump and the AHCA fail, their political careers are likely toast. So they have to work to help Trump and the AHCA succeed.

    The GOP Senate is the last stand of The Swamp (at least for now). If Trump can co-opt them, too, then boy things are going to get fun.

    Call your senators. Urge them to support Trump. I’ve called both of mine and told them to vote yes on AHCA.

    We’ve come this far. We are very close to complete victory. Now it’s time to get over the finish line and get the USA back where it belongs.
