.

*Asked about Don McGahn* – President Trump called him a really good guy, added that he has a lot of affection for Don; said McGahn is likely headed to the private sector. Asked if he was concerned about McGahn’s cooperation with Mueller. POTUS replied: No, adding that he had approved of McGahn speaking to the special counsel.

*Asked about trade negotiations with Canada* – President Trump said negotiations were going really well. Noted that White House and Canadian officials “negotiated late into the evening” last night. A lot of trade deals are working out well.

*Asked about Ron DeSantis remarks today* – President Trump said he didn’t hear DeSantis remarks, but continued to praise him, calling him extraordinary. Hes an extreme talent.

*Asked about the governments response to Puerto Rico following last years hurricanes* – I think we did a fantastic job in Puerto Rico. We’ve put a lot of money and a lot of effort into Puerto Rico. Said Puerto Rico had previously been grappling with electric plant issues before last Hurricane season.

*Asked if he wants to further regulate Google* – We just want fairness. You know what we want? Not regulation…fairness. Reiterated that he thinks Google and Facebook treat conservatives unfairly.

      That was the highlight of that round table I just watched! Every single one of those four youth are part of Generation Z! They are considered the most conservative generation since the WWII generation. They absolutely love our President and actually where a major factor in getting him elected.

    “DeSantis’ remarks? His remarks? You mean when he used a common saying used throughout the US by a variety of people and the Fake News turned it into a racist cat call? Yeah, I think the Fake News is a bunch of lowlife and the American people can clearly see through your lies.” That’s what I wish he’d have said.

    I wonder how much of that grant money will be stolen. Billions are now slated for drug treatment as the war on drugs implodes, sentences are reduced and convicted drug dealers given early release from federal prison is the name of the game:

    It will be so easy to steal most of that money and will be similar to the fraud in day care. They will be picking up van loads of street addicts, delivering them to rehab, give them a little “juice” or cash, send them in the front door, then right out the back. Instant millionaires.

    “For five months, Fox 9 has been investigating what appears to be rampant fraud in a massive state program.

    This fraud is suspected of costing Minnesota taxpayers as much as $100 million a year.

    The Fox 9 Investigators reporting is based on public records and nearly a dozen government sources who have direct knowledge of what is happening.

    To better understand the connection between daycare fraud and the surge in carry-on cash, you have to look at the history of this crime.

    Five years ago the Fox 9 Investigators were first to report that daycare fraud was on the rise in Minnesota, exposing how some businesses were gaming the system to steal millions in government subsidies meant to help low-income families with their childcare expenses.

    “It’s a great way to make some money,” Hennepin County Attorney Mike Freeman said.

    In order for the scheme to work, the daycare centers need to sign up low income families that qualify for child care assistance funding.

    Surveillance videos from a case prosecuted by Hennepin County show parents checking their kids into a center, only to leave with them a few minutes later. Sometimes, no children would show up.”

      When the self-described “drug counselors” see the federal handouts, they will line up around the block with their wallets open. And, this being funded by the feds, aka taxpayers, not a shred of proof for their effectiveness will be required. And the money will keep being shoveled out and the junkies will keep going through rehab–over and over and over again.

    The best way to make Drug Free communities is to build the WALL These Drug Free communities have always been a big failure and a huge sucking sound of public money.

    Secondly, if Sessions has a conscience he will go after the medical community for actively promoting synthetic heroin. Also, the esteemed American Medical Association past and present members should be strapped up to a lie detector and questioned about their participation in the massive exploitation under the tutelage and directives of American patients resulting in opiate addiction and death.

    The investigative team should look for the payoffs and bribes between the Drug corporations and the medical community.

    Because we know there was money involved. Lots and lots of money……dirty, death money.

  14. Drugs do not cause addiction, people cause addiction.

    There is no drug so powerful that you have no control over it. Drug education is one helpful thing the nation can do, but that only works to the extent people will listen.

    If people value their continuing addiction over everything else in life, there is not much you can do.

      They talk and don’t do, or do and make things worse. Trump acts and gets positive results. It exposes them for the posers they are. That’s one of the many reasons they hate him so much.

    House and Senate Opioid Packages Comparison

    The opioid epidemic has driven significant legislation this session. To help our readers track the pending opioid legislation, ML Strategies has created a chart to analyze various provisions of House and Senate bills and their overlap.

    https://www.healthlawpolicymatters.com/wp-content/uploads/sites/8/2018/08/House-and-Senate-Opioid-Comparison-Final_.pdf

    The chart compares the provisions of HR 6 – SUPPORT for Patients and Communities Act, passed by the House on June 22, 2018, and the Senate’s combined package of opioid legislation that we previously analyzed here.

    https://www.natlawreview.com/article/opioids-have-our-attention

    The Senate is aiming to pass its opioid package after Labor Day. If the Senate package passes, the House and Senate need to reconcile differences between the two opioid bills. As the chart indicates, there are significant differences between the packages, so many issues will need to be resolved before this legislation lands on the President’s desk.
