Republicans had to be satisfied on Friday with simply keeping the lights on. The House approved the spending measure by a vote of 382 to 30 (plus 18 non-votes),

    United Airlines chief executive set to testify before Congress WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The chief executive of United Airlines Inc will testify before a House panel on Tuesday in the aftermath of the forced removal on April 9 of a passenger from a Chicago flight, an incident that drew international condemnation. Viral videos of Dao being dragged down the aisle of the United jet and Munoz's handling of the incident touched off a public outcry, and prompted calls from congressmen for new industry regulation. The incident also led United's board of directors to reverse an agreement to make Munoz company chairman in 2018.

    The news was reported by The Hatchet, an independent student newspaper. "I am thrilled to have an opportunity to join the faculty and students at the George Washington University for the upcoming fall semester," Paul told the university. "The George Washington University is one of our nation's leading higher education institutions and I look forward to my time in Foggy Bottom." Paul, a libertarian Republican from Kentucky who ran an unsuccessful bid for the GOP presidential nomination in 2016, had previously expressed interest in teaching about dystopian novels and their message about the government becoming too powerful. "I've talked about it, but unfortunately I keep developing other projects that get in the way. I would like to do it someday," Paul said. "I think dystopian novels are a discussion of politics, and sort of what happens if you let a government accumulate too much power." http://www.washingtonexaminer.com/rand-pauls-dystopian-visions-coming-to-george-washington-university/article/2621521

    If one gets really generous and considers that it is just that Trump is "ill-advised" . . . maybe he can eek out a grade of F+ for the 100 days. But then again, he chose to surround himself with "yes" men, when a dissenting voice in the room would make him look waaaay smarter than he really is. IF . . . Stalintrump did decide to play with cruise missiles in some sicko chess game lobbing bombs and missiles - - all for political gain and/or your "political capital" - that is the most despicable of actions and reason to play tomahawks . . . Then the Trump grade card gets a F- . . . with either a public hanging or facing the guillotine welcomed.

    One could interpret Massie as saying that Gorsund was the only positive of the first 100 days . . . in order for the GOP Senate block and delay of Obama's SCOTUS replacement to have worked (after Scalia's weird death while all alone and they'd cremate the body immediately, according to "law") the Senators got a GOP nominee elected to President instead of Madame Hillary for the nomination. Sen. Patrick Leahy sure got made to look like another fine example of the need for term limits at the confirmation hearings. Colorado was the first state to allow abortions for cases other than when mother's life was at risk . . . six years later was Roe v. Wade to make it a national precedent. But, so, Gorsund stated that Roe v. Wade is the law of the land.

    Paul Ryan's first plan - with Trump diving headfirst into the quicksand fast enough - was worse than Ocare is - and arguably lacking enough constitutional muster, if considered as an age tax mandated to insurance monopolies. The Freedom Caucus prevented a worse mistake in round one, although Ryan-Trumpcare was DOA in the Senate with at least Mike Lee and Rand looking like no votes. A 100 days in . . . with a majority in his House as well as over in the Senate, and the GOP nominee winning the WH - and Paul Ryan has managed the GOP "losing seats" scenarios - it didn't take him, along with Rinse Pubis in the WH, all that long to eff up with those majorities.

    Honestly, if Trump did nothing and waited for a higher degree of confidence in the "groundless" intel . . . the Senate confirmation vote would have been the same. But yes, the deep state did convince him that he had to move right away . . . Russian navy was nearly there coming from the Black Sea for a few previous weeks. Thomas Massie was one of the few who urged restraint - and need for more evidence. UN is not convinced by the USA case.

    Wrong about what ? Gorsund was being voted on Thursday regardless . . . they had determined they were using the "nuclear option" to be confirmed before the attack - maybe Tuesday. No Senate confirmation votes were changed because of the bonehead Stalin move by Trump at all. What "deep-state" holdovers (?) . . . they picked up two Dems, the one Senator from Colorado who introduced him to the committee who had already said in the Denver Post that Sunday he would not filibuster - all GOP Senators were voting for confirmation was clear . . . if you watched the confirmation hearings. Trump couldn't show restraint in using military action - as it turns out - against the wrong guilty party. That is not success - that is full retard. The objective to take out Syria chemical capabilities from that airbase - nothing changed. That will be FATAL to President Donald J. Stalintrump - politically, ethically, stategically, morally, economically.

    Trump did not gain political capital by the crazyman Stalin move . . . "to take out Assad chemical warfare capability, because Russia didn't do the job" Stalintrump just made a fatal, wrong guess about who was at fault for the release of banned chemical warfare, and that the capability has escalated to air-to-surface missiles fired from Sukhoi Su-22s. Before one issues a death sentence it is better to be sure you have identified the correct guilty party. I maintain history will show that this Syria cruise missile attack executive order was a total fail - strategically, economically, ethically, politically, intellectually. Congress won't be giving this flippant, erratic, unthorough and unthoughtful potus much, if any, war powers now. Internationally, the world won't tolerate another Stalin . . . so I'll presume Trump will be dealt with accordingly like other crazies in history.

    Ryan doing an ankle grab here for a "Democrat condition' to prevent their vote against government funding and for a shut down ? Rand, Mike Lee, maybe Cruz and maybe Cotton could sink a House healthcare bill in the Senate as a "GOP condition" for the House Majority "leader". "There's a long history in modern politics of House members walking the plank for legislation that not only fails to become law but never even gets a vote in the Senate," Sen. Cotton said last month. http://www.newsmax.com/Politics/US-Health-Overhaul-Cotton/2017/03/18/id/779449/

    Or blow this up right now, by starting the process of getting rid of RINO Ryan. If it is not a repeal of Ocare then the Freedom Caucus should pass on it again, and again, and again if necessary until Marathon Man gets the idea into his head to put repeal to the House floor at least.

    “The truth is, we’re not repealing the Affordable Care Act,” Sanford said frankly. "When push comes to shove now that we have the chance, House leadership were not willing to bring that bill forward .” Why wouldn't Paul Ryan move the repeal bill before them forward to a vote . . . (?) at least see who is where for 2018 mid-terms.

When the UN Commission comes to the same conclusion as it did in 2013 - that Assad government were not the ones crossing the "red line" and that in fact it was rebel faction(s) in Syria - even if possibly originally manufactured by some government - who were the ones responsible for using banned chemical agents against civilians . . .

    April 26 marks the anniversary of the notorious Chernobyl Disaster. On this day, 31 years ago a catastrophic nuclear accident happened at the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant, turning the once lively city of Pripyat in the then-Ukrainian Soviet republic into an eerie ghost town. The Chernobyl accident released 400 times more radioactive material than the atomic bombing of Hiroshima, Japan in World War II. Contamination from the Chernobyl accident was scattered across 100,000 square kilometers of land, with the worst-hit regions being in Belarus, Ukraine and Russia. An estimated 8.4 million people were exposed to radiation.

    Some newsire headlines made it seem much more substantial, but now I read that as 17 jets out of the 35 there . . . a redistribution of assets (?) Russia has withdrawn almost half of its air grouping originally based at the Hmeymim facility in Syria, the Russian General Staff said Wednesday. Rudskoi revealed that the Russian air group never exceeded 35 aircraft between November 10, 2016 and January 10, 2017. As for unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), now Russia is operating about 80 drones in Syria, he added. He stressed that an analysis has shown that the Russian Aerospace Forces have conducted four times more airstrikes than the US-led coalition despite having fewer aircraft.

    The White House's all-hands briefing on North Korea sounded like it was a disorganized 'dog-and-pony show' Republican Sen. John McCain, the chairman of the Armed Services Committee, told CNN that he "didn't hear anything new because I have been heavily briefed before." Democratic Sen. Chris Coons told reporters after the briefing that "we were not presented with any specific military options," though he said it was "sobering." A Democratic senator told a NY Times reporter, that President Donald Trump appeared at the briefing and did his "ridiculous adjective" bit. There were "about 80 sets of invisible eyes rolling," the senator said, according to Martin.

    Conservatives Back Revised Health Bill, GOP Moderates Balk House Freedom Caucus endorsed a revised version of the moribund Republican health care bill Wednesday. Opposition by most of the caucus' roughly three dozen members was a major factor when House leaders canceled a vote on the legislation last month in a mortifying setback for the party. The changes would let states escape a requirement under President Barack Obama's health care law that insurers charge healthy and seriously ill customers the same rates. They could also be exempted from Obama's mandate that insurers cover a list of services like maternity care.

    US imposes 'sweeping' Syria sanctions over 'chemical' attack The treasury department ordered a freeze on all assets in the US of 271 employees of the Syrian Scientific Studies and Research Centre (SSRC). The US believes SSRC made the nerve agent that killed more than 80 people in the rebel-held town of Khan Sheikhoun. The sanctions mean that American citizens will be forbidden from having any dealings with them. http://www.bbc.com/news/world-middle-east-39699377
