With the release of former Trump transition team member Rep. Devin Nunes’ memo, President Trump and House Republicans intensified their attacks against our nation’s institutions as if they were attempting to breach the fortress of Hornburg in the battle of Helm’s Deep.
Nunes, the Chair of the House Intelligence Committee, previously won the heart of the Trump White House last March when he revealed intel allegedly showing the Trump campaign had been (unjustly) under surveillance (which it didn’t). It would later be revealed Nunes received his “evidence” from the Trump White House itself. Since the election, Nunes has proven to be Trump’s most loyal subordinate… the Wormtongue of Congress.
Last June, CNN’s Jim Acosta got into a heated discussion with White House senior policy adviser Stephen Miller over Trump’s support of an immigration policy which rewarded those who spoke English. Acosta remarked:
“It sounds like you’re trying to engineer the racial and ethnic flow of people into this country.”
Although the White House denied it at the time, Acosta nailed it.
GOP Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore has multiple credible accusations of sexual misconduct leveled against him, including the molestation of a 14 year-old girl when he was 32. So, why has the President and the Republican Party endorsed this vile excuse for a human being’s candidacy?

After a man drove a truck onto a Manhattan bike path on Halloween killed eight people, President Trump tweeted he had ordered Homeland Security to increase its “Extreme Vetting Program.”

When asked on Tuesday if Trump would increase extreme vetting of gun owners after twenty-six year old Devin Kelley carried out a mass shooting on a Texas church resulting in the deaths of 26 people, Trump attacked… Chicago:
On Friday, President Trump declared he would decertify the Iran nuclear deal. Unfortunately, his reasoning is grounded in falsehoods and omissions. The reality is that Trump is willing to further destabilize the world stage in order to throw a slab of red meat to his base while continuing to erase his predecessor’s legacy.
On September 30, the budget reconciliation process ends. This means the GOP will no longer have the ability to pass an Obamacare repeal and replace plan on only 51 votes (requiring zero Democratic support in Congress). Beginning in October, the Senate will once again require 60 votes to pass similar legislation.
Like Skynet losing the future war, the GOP is preparing to turn the tide by sending one last terminator back in time… in the form of the Graham-Cassidy health care plan.
Days after his inauguration, Donald Trump issued an executive order banning travel from seven Muslim-majority countries. The Muslim Ban was the first major policy Trump enacted rooted in fear and bigotry. His decision to rescind the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program is just his latest action marinated in hate.
Like the Trump administration’s previously themed weeks, “Made in America” failed to take the media by storm, concluding with the President’s Mar-a-Lago Club applying for 70 additional visas for foreign workers. However, it was another failure which overshadowed the White House’s attempt to control the media narrative: Donald Trump’s negotiating of health care reform.
