    Does anyone know about this—
    Looks like newest smear on Trump or did Trump screw up?
    How the Whitefish rots: Why did a tiny electric company get a huge Puerto Rico repair contract?


  2. NYT says this now? Can’t believe it! What’s coming their way?

    Got this garbage letter from Bill Nelson of Florida.

    Late yesterday, I voted for a $36.5 billion disaster aid package to respond to Hurricanes Harvey, Irma, and Maria, and provide help for recovery from recent wildfires.
    The bipartisan bill passed the Senate 82 to 17 and is expected to be signed into law by the President.  This funding is in addition to the $15 billion I helped secure for hurricane relief in September.
    The bill provides over $18 billion for the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s Disaster Relief Fund (DRF), including nearly $5 billion for Community Disaster Loans.  The DRF allows FEMA to direct, coordinate, manage, and fund response and recovery efforts associated with major disasters.  Community Disaster Loans assist local governments facing a loss of revenue after a disaster by providing loans to cover essential services like fire and emergency services, policing, and garbage collection.
    The bill also provides $16 billion in support of the National Flood Insurance Program, to ensure it can continue paying out claims to the survivors of recent hurricanes, and provides $1.27 billion specifically for food assistance for Puerto Rico.
    In an effort to help Florida’s agricultural industry devastated by Hurricane Irma, I filed an amendment to the disaster aid bill that would have provided $3 billion in disaster assistance to help farmers who lost crops due to this year’s hurricanes.  Florida’s agricultural industry sustained more than $2.5 billion in damages due to Hurricane Irma, with more than $760 million in losses to our citrus industry alone. 
    I was disappointed that my amendment to help Florida farmers was not included in the final bill. However, the President has promised to include funding for agriculture assistance in a disaster supplemental funding bill expected to be considered in November.
    To make sure Florida’s farmers are not forgotten, I’ve placed a hold on one of President Trump’s nominees and have made it clear that I won’t lift that hold until Florida farmers get the help they need.
    To view a speech I delivered on the Senate floor urging my colleagues to remember the plight of Americans trying to put their lives together after recent disasters please visit: https://youtu.be/Xm2cp-9Q-kk.
    If you are in need of assistance because of any of the recent hurricanes, you may apply for benefits by contacting FEMA at: http://www.disasterassistance.gov or call 1-800-621-FEMA (1-800-621-3362) TTY: 1-800-462-7585.

    Big stuff


    Lawyers think they have finally found the smoking gun in the IRS’s tea party targeting scandal: an email from an IRS agent to her supervisors alerting them that the agency was, in fact, singling out some groups’ applications for extreme scrutiny “primarily because of their political party affiliation.”

    The email was released last month as part of a massive document dump in a class-action lawsuit filed in Ohio by hundreds of conservative groups who were targeted for extra review and intrusive questioning.

    Instead, the April 1, 2011, email from Elizabeth C. Kastenberg, an official in the agency’s exempt organizations division, says it was explicitly the organizations’ politics that landed them on the target list.

    “These cases are held back primarily because of their political party affiliation rather than specifically any political activities,” Ms. Kastenberg wrote in an alert to other IRS employees, including her supervisor.

    Leaving for a family visit . Every time I go away , something significant happens. Since I don’t have any mobile gadgets, I then have to catch up. Lots of stories stirring. Hope the good news beats out the MSM sour narratives.
    Grateful for much.

    Don’t know if others have experienced the same, haven’t been able to keep up with TCTH today.
    But I think my tablet is under attack by drudgereport. The only two sites I have used from the tablet is DR and TCTH. Three times today, after checking DR, AdBlockPlus was disabled, page load time became 10’s of minutes, and FireFox was generally weirding out. Doing a Clear Private Data (except for form history and site settings) returns FF to normal.

      Ditch Drudge Report, he’s hopelessly compromised and coasts on the inertia of readers who discovered him back when he was fearless alt-reporting and not the mindless regurgitation of MSM reports he is now.

      I’d suggest news.infogalactic.com for better news coverage without all the adware, spyware, and assorted nonsense that characterizes Drudge these days.
