The Summary

It picks you up, while putting you down.

Today marks day 50 of the Russian Usurper’s administration, and we note that it is the half-way point of the mythical first 100 days.

“No president wants to have early in their administration a major legislative defeat because it makes them look weak.” — Staff-banging serial adulterer Noot.

Let’s figure out where we are and what the state of play is this morning.

  • The number of immigrants caught at the border by Border Patrol agents dropped 40%.  Are Bannon and the other white nationalists in the 4th Reich doing the happy dance?
  • FBI investigation continues: “Internet data shows that last summer, a computer server owned by Russia-based Alfa Bank repeatedly looked up the contact information for a computer server being used by the Trump Organization — far more than other companies did, representing 80% of all lookups to the Trump server.”  The Russia problem won’t go away:
    • multiple meetings between Trump “campaign” and Russia
    • the intelligence community (rightly) wants revenge
    • congressional probes launched
  • Six states tell Hair Führer that they  will see you in court!, er, the traveling while Mooselimb ban.
  •  Brookings study: “CBO’s analysis will likely estimate that at least 15 million people will lose coverage … Estimates could be higher, but it’s is unlikely they will be significantly lower.”
  • David Brooks even says (emphasis mine), “This thing probably won’t pass, but even if it passes it will probably lead to immense pain and disruption. That will discredit market-based social reform, cost the Republicans their congressional majorities and end what’s left of the Reagan-era party.”

The dove-like, non-interventionist, and not war enthusiast Hillary Clinton is escalating the conflicts in the Middle East:

And I think that brings us up to speed for the morning. What else is happening?

    The story about the Alpha server in Trump Tower was known well before the election but Hillary’s emails were just too important to cover an actual story.

    I’ve found people trying to justify the new troop deployments by saying “look at what President (my emphasis) did with deployments”. Like WTF? They want more dead service people? This will not end well. there were reasons we didn’t much go to Syria, and a Great reason to get the F out of Afghanistan , history anyone? Geeze, what cheese heads.

    How do we know if there are less people trying to come in or those 40% are getting smarter and didn’t get caught!
