    That article posted by @jimmydean is some cherry picked, bullshit, FAKE NEWS!!!! Which not ought to surprise anyone, given that it's "The Federalist".

    If you follow the links all the way down the rabbit hole to the OG Politico article, you get this gem:

    I am thinking this smells more and moar like a plant. Trump let "slip" a couple pages that showed he paid some taxes FOREVER ago and now we should all shut up. Why MSNBC made such a huge stink about 2 pages of a dated return is still a little odd, but ratings don't make themselves.

    Agreed. This reeks of "please forget about the whole Russia thing".

    Trump’s proposal to slash fuel economy regulations to help the American Automotive industry is at best a short sighted and will likely hurt US manufacturers in the long term. Regulations affect manufacturers equally, if it hurt US companies it is only because they lack the competitiveness to succeed. They are unwilling to invest in technology and actually make a better product. Allowing them will actually hurt US jobs. Manufacturers will no longer need to invest in research, no need to hire the scientists and engineers to develop new powertrains. No need to invest in new factories and manufacturing systems, no need to retool existing factories. That in itself will cost many many jobs. However this will pad corporate profits, but only for a while. While US manufacturers sit on their asses other companies will still be developing cleaner and more efficient powertrains for other markets, and when oil prices rise once again, and they will, US manufactures once again will be stuck with a big and inefficient product line with shitty small efficient cars. Consumers will once again flock to the Japanese cars and the Chryslers of the world will once again get caught with their pants down.


    My tinfoil hat analysis is that this isn’t just some incompetent and short sighted attempt to help US manufacturing, but a poorly veiled attempt to help out the petroleum industry that has deeply infiltrated our government. An industry that sees it’s stranglehold on the world economy going away. The guys know that they are becoming obsolete and they are doing everything they can to maintain their slipping relevance for another decade, with no care or concern of the damage they will do to future generations.

    The head of the Senate Intelligence Committee has seen no evidence that the Obama administration “wiretapped” Trump Tower, according to a brief statement issued Thursday.

    “Based on the information available to us, we see no indications that Trump Tower was the subject of surveillance by any element of the United States government either before or after Election Day 2016,” Sen. Richard Burr (R-N.C.) said, providing no other details

    https://tinyurl.com/zue8dsw

    in other words: Trump is a lying sack of shit

    FISA courts can and have been known to suppress individuals even mentioning that they're subject to surveillance...

    Herr Twitler will spend the entire NEA's annual budget flying to Florida for the weekend. It costs over $3 million for each of those little trips.

    The NEA does so much good for artists and those who appreciate culture. Not to mention the thousands of jobs that will be lost.

    People may be choosing to drive around instead of through.

    Not that there really are any better options. For anyone forced into terrestrial travel across that part of the world, I'd just recommend starting off well rested with a full tank of gas and plenty of food. Drive hard and fast until you can no longer smell the ignorance.

    In today's episode of Comey's flaccid wavering backbone.

    https://www.washingtonpost.com/blog...-card-a:homepage/story&utm_term=.cf5f52e038cc

    "Moreover, Vladimir Putin has convinced a significant chunk of the American electorate that Trump is “illegitimate.” (One poll shows 57 percent of young voters between 18 and 30 consider him “illegitimate.”) And worse, it’s convinced many Americans that our president’s word cannot be trusted."

    As if Putin needed to convince Americans that the President's word can't be trusted; he's done a pretty bang up job of that himself. But tell me again how the real tragedy in this whole thing are the people leaking classified information, I just can't get enough of that.
