    Dem regrets for the next election.
    The number one issue of record for House and Senate people will be their vote on the tax cuts.

    Time line
    In February, Treasury will adjust the income tax withholding rates. So many people without doing anything may see an increase in their pay stub starting in Feb..

    It will be hard for NO voters on tax reform to hide from the people.
    Then in 2019 as people file 2018 taxes they will see even more benefit.

    Next up infrastructure projects. A Dem NO on this and they will lose many union votes.
    Just saying – watch what they do.
    PDJT wants to place the infrastructure bill up pretty soon. Get it done and signed by end of first quarter.

    Yale psychiatrist who briefed Hill Dems wants to physically restrain President Trump, force him to submit to evaluation, declare him unfit for office. But she worries: ‘This really will look like a coup.’ You think? From Vox: http://ow.ly/fdlG30hCyqa

      Yeah…..”force him to submit to evaluation, declare him unfit for office.”….

      Sounds a lot like “hang him, then declare him guilty.”

      Of course it would be a coup. He’s your president….get over it.

      Honestly. The Left would have a collective pants wetting if someone suggested doing this to your basic obviously mentally ill street person. Muh civil rights! But, hey, it’s only that dumb old Donald Trump we’re talking about here so it’s all good.

      I wish they’d throw her butt in the psych ward. She sounds crazy to me.

        ^^^^ THIS ^^^^
        Is the “Tell”, when they’re bluffing.
        For the liberals, “mental illness” is a tool that can be used as a legal defense for both criminal and civil purposes, as well as an excuse for bad behavior, and to take advantage of government benefits, which for them have become “entitlements” (Rights).
        But only when it suits their agenda.

        Sylvia I worked for 30 years in a state mental health, substance abuse and developmentally disabled institution in the state of Georgia. The state was sued by the Federal government for having too many patients who had been there for years. They required us to find placements for these folks in the community. If that had been possible we would have already done that years ago. Some of the patients were absolutely a severe risk to themselves and the community, no one would listen. These patients were usually non compliant with medication outside the hospital, and had severe psychotic symptoms even with medication. It was comply or face legal action no matter what the treatment teams input was.

        Many of the developmentally disabled had been there since they were young. These poor people were bed ridden, could not feed themselves, had bodies twisted like pretzels and could not speak! They all had severe medical conditions that required nursing and frequent treatment in a medical facility.

        Needless to say when forced to be placed in community facilities, a lot of them passed away fairly quickly without that constant nursing and medical care.

        I hear these leftists whine about gun laws, yet they are the very ones who made it harder to share information with law enforcement and family members of people who might do them/others harm. They helped to enact laws that made it harder to keep these people and the community safe.

          That is heart breaking. I have a sibling that worked in a mental health facility in the early 80s. The program he worked for was a state service, a shiny new thing.

          The object was to cull out from the remaining state mental hospitals those that could be “main streamed” and taught “adult living skills” in his facility and then placed ultimately on their own. Sounds good, right???

          However, there were few suitable candidates in the state mental hospitals and they ran through them pretty fast. So then they kept getting people who simply couldn’t or wouldn’t comply with needed medications and couldn’t or wouldn’t learn adult living skills, so they were never ever going to be people who could live successfully on their own or even in a halfway house.

          Very sad, but the pressure was to succeed because this was some governor’s pet project. It was never a success and shut down after ten or fifteen years, and all but about the first year had been an abject failure.

          And all those mentally ill? Well, they mostly ended up walking away from the half way houses and living on the street, or cycling back to the state mental hospital, or ending up in jail.

    Spent some time wandering through think tanks today, ran into dear old Evelyn Farkas at the Aspen institute, from 20 July 2017. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a04JKkUCIUE
    Seems Russian “meddling” has now morphed into “Active Measures The Kremlin Plan to Beat the West without Firing a Shot.” Yes, dear Evelyn, who runs her mouth and has no concept of talking too much, let alone modesty or discretion, is still running her mouth.

    The moderator was Jim Sciutto of CN&N, who was asking for signs that Pres Trump has given concessions to Russia. Evelyn Farkas, 06:39 –
    “…If indeed it’s true that now we’ve removed our funding from the CIA-backed forces in Syria, that certainly would be a concession to Russia…”

    CIA-backed forces in Syria.
    Thought these guys were moderate Syrian rebels?
    So many questions emanate from that one throw-away phrase of Farkas.

    Logically following back to the Benghazi Brief, seems motor-mouth Evvie has confirmed a good portion of your Benghazi Brief research. From where else could the funding and arming of the CIA-backed Syria forces have originated?

    Btw, who would make a better FSB source – a spinsterish forty-something with a motor-mouth and an obvious need for attention, or a blatantly patriotic American billionaire who wants to stop the waste of taxpayer money and Make America Great Again?

    Do not bother wasting your time listening to this forum. It is an hour of fear and loathing from very psycho-logically damaged ppl. They are to be pitied, imo.

    “My book is about unique access to Trump and his aides. In fact, I interviewed him last weekend the night before the Mar-a-Lago New Year’s Eve party and he was perfectly normal, on top of everything,” Kessler told Bill Tucker on Newsmax TV’s “Newsmax Now.”

    We all know that President Trump is very precise in the words that he chooses to use…

    “Crooked Hillary Clinton’s top aide, Huma Abedin, has been accused of disregarding basic security protocols. She put Classified Passwords into the hands of foreign agents. Remember sailors pictures on submarine? Jail! Deep State Justice Dept must finally act? Also on Comey & others.”

    “She put Classified Passwords into the hands of foreign agents”…there is no wavering, not ‘she could have had the passwords hacked”, not “she may have put the passwords in the direct path of computer hackers”…but Trump specifically states .Huma Abedin put Classified Passwords “into the hands of foreign agents”…

    Was President Trump talking about the hack of YaHoo days after Abedin emailed herself the Classified Passwords, or is there the possibility that President Trump specifically states “into the hands of foreign agents” because of intelligence sharing with Egypt?
