“The president’s primary problem as a leader is not that he is impetuous, brash or naive,” Noonan said. “It’s not that he is inexperienced, crude, an outsider. It is that he is weak and sniveling. It is that he undermines himself almost daily by ignoring traditional norms and forms of American masculinity.” – Peggy Noonan, Ronald Reagan’s speech writer

49 - YES





McConnell And Trump Just Got Humiliated As Obamacare Repeal Dies On Senate Floor





Washington (CNN) The Senate has dealt a devastating setback to Republican efforts to repeal and replace Obamacare, defeating a GOP "skinny repeal" bill early Friday morning. 

 Sens. John McCain, Lisa Murkowski and Susan Collins joined with Democrats to oppose the measure, a major blow to President Donald Trump and the Republican congressional agenda.







To the Republicans who put country above party:  

Well done, and thank you!

Here's The Trump Administration That The Evangelical Right Admires



The Evangelical Religious Right owns and approves this:


Anthony Scaramucci unloaded on Reince Priebus in a profanity-laced tirade with the New Yorker on Thursday. 

“Reince is a fucking paranoid schizophrenic, a paranoiac,” the new White House communications director said of the president's chief of staff. “Reince Priebus—if you want to leak something—he’ll be asked to resign very shortly.” 

Scaramucci has made stopping White House leaks his top priority. “What I want to do is I want to fucking kill all the leakers and I want to get the President’s agenda on track so we can succeed for the American people,” he said. 

Scaramucci denied that he craves media attention. “I’m not Steve Bannon, I’m not trying to suck my own cock.”

And he said: "Reince Priebus—if you want to leak something—he’ll be asked to resign very shortly.” 

And then, impersonating Reince Priebus, he said: "Let me leak the fucking thing and see if I can cock-block these people the way I cock-blocked Scaramucci for six months.”


No wonder Lord Dampnut likes the Mooch, he's as vulgar as the so-called preznit.

Remember folks, this is what the family values party thinks will make America great again. A perfect example of the trash the far right admires, as long as it has an "R" after its name.

I wonder if they'll read this to their children as an example of how Trump is draining the swamp and an example of Republican aspirations.


They own this.



The Military Rebukes Pissant President Trump



Bravo!

And well done!


The military's extraordinary public rebuke of Trump 

 In a message today to the Pentagon's top brass, the chairman of the joint chiefs of staff essentially said that Trump can go soak his head: "I know there are questions about yesterday's announcement on the transgender policy by the President. There will be no modifications to the current policy until the President's direction has been received by the Secretary of Defense and the Secretary has issued implementation guidance. 


In the meantime, we will continue to treat all of our personnel with respect …"





First battle:

Transgender military -- 1

Pissant Trump -- 0

Justice Department Argues Landmark Civil Rights Law Doesn’t Protect Gay People 



Advocacy groups swiftly condemned the DOJ filing, which landed the day President Donald Trump banned transgender people from military service.


The Department of Justice argued in a legal brief on Wednesday that the landmark Civil Rights Act of 1964 offers no protection from discrimination based on sexual orientation, a position advocacy groups condemned as “shameful” and “politically driven.” 

 DOJ lawyers, arguing under Attorney General Jeff Sessions, submitted an amicus brief to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit in which they said the department did not believe the law ― which bans discrimination based on race, color, religion, sex or national origin ― applied to lesbian and gay people. 


Like most bullies, Donald Trump is really a coward. 


Although he spent a dozen seasons on “The Apprentice” playing the boss who loved saying “You’re fired,” he doesn’t have the guts to lower the boom as president. When he did fire former FBI director James Comey, he hid behind the skirts of deputy attorney general Rod Rosenstein. 

With his beleaguered press secretary Sean Spicer he waited until the poor man resigned after weeks of mean-spirited critiques behind Spicey’s back, of everything from his suits to his speaking style. [...] 

Cowards pick on the vulnerable. [...] 

Cowards make empty threats. [...] 

The president is lucky that unlike the Republicans in Nixon’s day, his party and its congressional members are cowards, too. There is no Howard Baker, asking “What did the president know and when did he know it,” or a Barry Goldwater, who had the courage to tell Nixon that his support in the Congress had crumbed to dust because of his lawlessness


What are you going to do about it, America?

 Get out there and march and protest this sickening anti-LGBTQ administration.

This will not stand.

These are the American people, Trump, not small-time contractors you can stiff. 

We have rights, and legal precedent.
