    I wonder whats in those emails? Probably nothing, because the KKK is allowing transgender eskimos to join the club on condition they can show bitcoin receipts for the purchase of bump stocked rifles and MAGA hats. And that's exactly why we should have been screening all women who come into our borders for pregnancy.

    Bob Corker is a douchecanoe, first class.

    "... he switched his vote to “yes” on the tax legislation, only after Republican leaders added in a provision reducing taxes on income from real-estate LLCs. Federal records reviewed by IBT show Corker, a commercial real estate mogul, made up to $7 million last year from such income. President Donald Trump's financial disclosures listed between $41 million and $68 million of the same income.

    That's what Hillary is for. It's possible Mueller has him by the short hairs.

    Remember pork barrel politics when senators would support shitty legislation because add-ons would benefit their constituents?
    Those were the days.

    This makes 3 totally unqualified Judicial Nominees that have been sent packing :headbang::headbang::headbang::rofl::rofl:

    Trump judicial pick Matthew Petersen, who never tried a case, withdraws

    Trump nominated Petersen for a seat on the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia, which carries a lifetime tenure.

    Last week, Petersen was grilled by Sen. John Kennedy, R-La., at a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing about his background and the nominee stumbled badly when quizzed on matters of law and his legal experience.

    "Have you tried a jury trial?" Kennedy asked.

    “I have not,” said Petersen.

    "Have you ever argued a motion in federal court?" Kennedy later asked.

    "No," Petersen responded.

    Petersen also admitted he had never done a bench trial, or tried any civil or criminal cases in federal or state court. He also could not explain the Daubert standard, regarding the admissibility of expert testimony, among other legal terms.

    The latest withdrawal comes after two of Trump's other judicial picks were knocked out of the running this month. Jeff Mateer described transgender children as evidence of "Satan's plan" and Brett Talley had never argued a case in court and was rated "unanimously unqualified" by the American Bar Association.

    In other words, he is more suited to trailer park living than the white house.

    No, that sounds like the last couple of centuries of normal American national security policy & foreign policy........ gathering financial intelligence for and going to war for corporations.

    Trump just admitted in his press conference "now that it's done" that they snuck in to the tax bill...
    - repeal of Obamacare (edit: repeal of individual mandate)
    - the approval of drilling in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge

    Now they're praying.

    Just got the corporate all employee e-mail celebrating the great tax reform bill. I have no questions that reduced taxes will help my company. I do however get pissed when they use the same lies as the Republicans to richsplain why it is good for me. Company claims they paid the highest tax rates in the world and now they will have the cash to invest within the company. The company has tens of billions cash on hand at any point in time, has been going through an aggressive stock buy back this year and will just about double the dividend payout.

    Of course we will benefit because the company has pledged approximately 5% of what they will save next year in facilities improvements and employee training. I am not sure how employees will actually benefit from that, seems like shit the company should be doing anyway.

    So they were going to do without training and safety otherwise? Good to know you’ll be taking home that extra cold hard cash.

    Fun fact. I was tapped for a hellish special committee to determine our engineering groups skill gaps and identify training plans to close said gaps. After my initial investigation I presented that our biggest gat was that management had no idea what their engineers actually did and had no means of evaluating their work. I suggested that we either hire managers that knew what the hell they are doing or send the ones we have to the same training we give engineers.

    The senior manager panel I reported to shot down my proposal as unnecessary. A year later my boss is starting to come to the same conclusion.

    Yeah saw that and as a result I sent an email to my MP and to the Prime Ministers office asking them to vote against in the UN specifically because of the USA's standover tactics and bullying.
    Get fucked Donald.
