MOOCH OUT! Scaramucci S**t Canned After A F***ing Crazy Couple Of Days!

Anthony Scaramucci has resigned from his role as White House communications director.

Scaramucci's tenure as comms director, a mere ten days, is the shortest in presidential history.

Scaramucci's resignation reportedly came at the behest of Gen. John Kelly, the new White House chief of staff.

A statement from the White House press secretary said Monday. ...

Mr. Scaramucci felt it was best to give Chief of Staff John Kelly a clean slate and the ability to build his own team. We wish him all the best.

Scaramucci was then physically escorted from White House grounds.

The resignation comes after Scaramucci's profanity-laced tirade against other members of Donald Trump’s White House staff that was published in The New Yorker last week in which he referred to Reince Priebus as “a fucking paranoid schizophrenic, a paranoiac" and said he was unlike Steve Bannon, in that he was not "trying to suck my own cock.”

Many pundits have posited that they believed that Scaramucci may have been a figurative "suicide bomber" sent into the White House to take out the former Chief of Staff Reince Priebus, who was fired (or resigned) on Friday afternoon, and then disappear after the job was done.

Bannon appears safe for the time being.

Scaramucci, who received divorce papers from his wife last week after he attended a Trump speech rather than attend his son's birth, will be returning to the private sector in order to spend more time learning how to suck his own cock.

Scaramucci is the first scalp the brand new Chief of Staff John Kelly has obtained.

Trump's New Health Care Tweet Showcases His Cruelty And Stupidity

This is Trump's infamous cruel and stupid face.

Donald Trump belched out massive 13 post tweet storm this Saturday.

The topics of those tweets ranged from how Russia was actually "against" him in the 2016 election to blasting the Senate rules that require 60 votes to overcome a legislative filibuster.

But there was one tweet that was special in that it both illuminated the fact that Trump has no idea how government or health care works and has no empathy for the Americans he purportedly serves that need that health care.

This is the tweet...

Okay, let's start at the beginning.

By saying he will not approve "BAILOUTS" for insurance companies Trump is actually threatening to withhold federal payments that help reduce insurance premiums. This would cause two-fold damage. One it would adversely effect low and mid-income Americans by causing premiums to spike and it would simultaneously force insurance companies out of an already shrinking market.

Add this to the fact that Trump has already cancelled $5 million in ads that alert people to the upcoming enrollment season and you can see just how he intends to cause Obamacare to "implode" as he puts it.

The mere threat lead Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer to put out a statement in which he asserted that Trump was putting his thumb on the scale and toying with the lives of millions....

"If the President refuses to make the cost sharing reduction payments, every expert agrees that premiums will go up and health care will be more expensive for millions of Americans. The president ought to stop playing politics with people's lives and health care, start leading and finally begin acting Presidential.

'Nuff said.

The second part of the tweet is a threat. A stupid, stupid threat.

Not approving "BAILOUTS" for members of Congress implies that Trump would remove members of Congress and many staffers from Federal Employee Health Benefits structure and put into the new insurance exchanges set up by ObamaCare in 2010.

In other words Trump is threatening to make these politicians and their staff rely on Obamacare if they don't vote to repeal Obamacare thus removing as many as 32 million Americans from the health insurance they obtained through Obamacare!!!!!

I quit.

PRIEBUS OUT! Reince "Quits" As Trump's Chief Of Staff As General John Kelly Named As His Replacement

White House Chief Of Staff Reince Priebus has quit or been fired depending on who you believe.

Priebus, who just over a month ago thanked Donald Trump "for the opportunity and the blessing you've given us to serve (his) agenda", announced his resignation after just six months. His departure marks that quickest of any Chief of Staff in presidential history.

Priebus rose to his position after serving as the chairman of the Republican National Committee during the 2016 presidential campaign. After his win Trump tapped the mild mannered chairman to serve in his administration.

It was an ill fitting match from the beginning.

After months of on-again, off-again rumors that he was on the chopping block, drawing heavy criticism for failing to staunch the flow of leaks and not delivering a sense of order to a chaotic White House Priebus was finally cut loose.

Trump tweeted out the news of Priebus' exit on Friday afternoon as they both rode home together on Air Force One from an event on Long Island...

That must have been an awkward ride home don't you think?

As for Priebus, he issued a statement Friday evening...

"It has been one of the greatest honors of my life to serve this President and our country. I want to thank the President for giving me this very special opportunity. I will continue to serve as a strong supporter of the President's agenda and policies. I can't think of a better person than General John Kelly to succeed me and I wish him God's blessings and great success."

Priebus' replacement is retired Marine Gen. John F. Kelly who had, up until today, been serving as Donald Trump’s secretary for homeland security. Kelly will be the third general to serve in the Trump administration after secretary of defense Marine Gen. James N. Mattis and the former national security adviser Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn.

PS - Scaramucci defeats Priebus in a flawless victory.

OBAMACARE LIVES! Senator McCain Delivers Killshot To Trumpcare In Dramatic Fashion (VIDEO)

After seven years of promises the Republican dream of repealing Obamacare died on the Senate floor early Friday morning.

Thought the Republican majority in Congress has voted over 60 times since 2011 to repeal all or part of the Affordable Care Act and despite pressure from Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) and Donald Trump last night they just couldn't deliver the goods.

The final vote in last night's attempt to undo the Affordable Care Act was 49-51.

It ended with Republican Sen. Susan Collins of Maine and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska being joined in a last minute stunner by John McCain of Arizona united with all 46 of the chamber’s Democrats and two independents to defeat the so called "Skinny Repeal."

McCains no vote stunned the gallery. It came despite hours of Republicans, including Vice President Mike Pence and Donald Trump, trying to persuade him.

Here is the moment McCain enter the chamber and dramatically enter his "no" vote with a thumbs down gesture...

It was dramatic to say the least.

McCain, who was diagnosed with brain cancer last week, was only on hand because Republican's demanded he return on Tuesday to vote on a measure to open debate on the bill. After voting for the motion to proceed to the bill, McCain delivered an impassioned speech asking for more bipartisanship in all aspects of government.

Apparently he was not satisfied that his colleagues received his message as the bills put forward including last night's were rushed, chaotic, secretive and never opened to debate.

Trump who was watching the bill go down in flames live lashed out in a tweet blaming everyone but himself and delivering a threat to boot...

Although he didn't name names it was apparent whom he will attack in the coming days.

Hopefully this will end the shameful chapter in the Republican's efforts to kill the ACA and perhaps now start working together with their Democratic peers for the good of the country and the American people.

I wouldn't count on it though.

Anthony Scaramucci Says Steve Bannon "Sucks His Own Cock", Calls Reince Priebus A "Paranoic" Who "Cock Blocked" Him

Trump's new White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci

Perhaps Donald Trump though he could steer his out of control administration back on course with the hiring of a new communications director. Perhaps he thought by employing the slick talking, slick dressing, slick haired Anthony Scaramucci he would set right his ship.

He couldn't have been more wrong.

It only took five days for Scaramucci to implode as the comms director but it was his actions over the last 48 hours that lit the fuse.

First Scaramucci accused White House chief of staff Reince Priebus of leaking his financial disclosures in a now deleted tweet that implied he had contacted not only the F.B.I. but the Department of Justice as well to deal with the "felony". He then gave a rambling and creepy interview to CNN to explain the tweet in which he pretty much spoke uninterrupted about himself for a half an hour.

But it was the vulgar tirade he launched into while talking to a New Yorker reporter about Reince Priebus and chief strategist Steve Bannon that set this bomb off.

During the interview with the magazine Scaramucci touched on a whole range of subjects in which he said a whole lot crazy-ass things.

Let's have a run down...

He referred to himself in the third person as the "the Mooch"...

"O.K., the Mooch showed up a week ago. This is going to get cleaned up very shortly, O.K.? Because I nailed these guys. I've got digital fingerprints on everything they've done through the F.B.I. and the fucking Department of Justice."

He claimed he had done nothing inappropriate as far as his financial disclosures...

"I've done nothing wrong on my financial disclosures, so they're going to have to go fuck themselves."

He said he was going to fire everyone under him...

"What I'm going to do is, I will eliminate everyone in the comms team and we'll start over."

He then said he wanted to kill them...

"What I want to do is I want to fucking kill all the leakers and I want to get the President's agenda on track so we can succeed for the American people."

Here are a few other sugar plumbs Scaramucci dropped during the interview...

• "What I'm going to do is, I will eliminate everyone in the comms team and we'll start over...I ask these guys not to leak anything and they can't help themselves...You're an American citizen, this is a major catastrophe for the American country. So I'm asking you as an American patriot to give me a sense of who leaked it."

• "O.K., I'm going to fire every one of them, and then you haven't protected anybody, so the entire place will be fired over the next two weeks."

• "They'll all be fired by me. I fired one guy the other day. I have three to four people I'll fire tomorrow. I'll get to the person who leaked that to you. Reince Priebus—if you want to leak something—he'll be asked to resign very shortly."

• "Yeah, let me go, though, because I've gotta start tweeting some shit to make this guy crazy."

But it was what he said about Steve Bannon and Reince Preibus that really grabbed everyone's attention.

Scaramucci attacked Bannon first inveighing the idea that the chief strategist as trying only to further his prominenence but using a more colorful turn of the tongue...

"I'm not Steve Bannon, I'm not trying to suck my own cock. I’m not trying to build my own brand off the fucking strength of the President. I’m here to serve the country.

I have no words.

He then turned his focus to Priebus, which the article's author Ryan Lizza describes Scaramucci as having “convinced himself” that Priebus was a source of many of the White House’s leaks...

"Reince Priebus... if you want to leak something... he’ll be asked to resign very shortly. Reince is a fucking paranoid schizophrenic, a paranoiac... 'Let me leak the fucking thing and see if I can cock-block these people the way I cock-blocked Scaramucci for six months.'"

A Question.

Have we reached the "Defining deviancy down” moment based on the theory of sociologist Emile Durkheim that there is a limit to the bad behavior that a society can tolerate before it has to start lowering its standards?

Boy Scouts Chief Forced To Apologize For Trump's Embarrassing Performance At Jamboree

The head of the Boy Scouts of America apologized Thursday for President Trump's speech at the Scouts' annual jamboree.

Chief Scout Executive Michael Surbaugh said in the statement that it "was never our intent" to inject politics into the event.

Surbaugh wrote...

"I want to extend my sincere apologies to those in our Scouting family who were offended by the political rhetoric that was inserted into the jamboree. We sincerely regret that politics were inserted into the Scouting program." Surbaugh continued  that the invite was "in no way an endorsement of any person, party or policies. For years, people have called upon us to take a position on political issues, and we have steadfastly remained non-partisan and refused to comment on political matters,"

The apology was in response to outcry over the performance given by Donald Trump in front of a crowd of about 40,000 children at the 2017 National Jamboree in West Virginia on Monday.

At the Jamboree Trump took the stage and immediately turned the event into a political rally. He criticized former President Barack Obama (who also addressed the gathering as president), railed against Obamacare, ridiculed former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, basked in his own electoral victory, thanked the Scouts for their votes (?), regaled the audience with stories of his salad days at New York cocktail parties and of course whined about the "fake media."

Parents and former Scouts were understandably disgusted by the president's remarks.

Senate Defeats Republican's 2nd Effort To Repeal Obamacare In As Many Days

On Monday night the Senate voted on and narrowly passed a procedural measure allowing them to move ahead with their goal to repeal Obamacare.

Feeling lucky they immediately tried voting on a proposal to repeal and replace Obamacare called "The Better Care Reconciliation Act" which was voted down, 43-57, with nine Republicans voting no.

Last night the Senate tried their luck again and proposed a full Obamacare repeal without replacement - An action the Congressional Budget Office estimated would have resulted 32 million more uninsured over the next decade.

It too was crushed by a vote of 45-55, with seven Republicans opposing the measure.

The failed effort was remarkable in that two years ago, when the Republicans controlled the House and Senate, they passed an identical measure.

That vote was apparently easy for them as they knew with certainty that as soon as they sent it to President Obama he would veto the bill... which of course he did.

The 2015 passage of that legislation was a political exercise with no consequences to be paid. What the Senate and the House does these days will have repercussions and no one wants to bear the responsibility for gutting medicaid, raising insurance premiums and kicking US citizens off their health care.

So after seven years it has become clear that the stakes are real, the GOP is gutless and it's members are without political or ethical morals.

BREAKING: Trump Announces Ban On Transgender People In The US Military

Out of the blue Donald Trump has announced via Twitter that the government "will not accept or allow" transgender citizens to serve in the military...

There has been no word from Trump's U.S. National Security Advisor General H. R. McMaster on the subject.

Since there are only 1500 transgender people serving in all branches of the military including the Coast Guard that means there is no "burden", no "tremendous medical costs" nor "disruption" to our fighting forces.

In fact, according to a New England Journal of Medicine study it only cost the military $.22 per service member per month to help them transition.

That leaves only one reason to enact this discriminatory action this morning...

This would be to toss red meat to Trump's base and wave a bright shiny object to distract from the Trump/Russia investigation his administration is embroiled in.

An added bonus is that this decision reverses the policy initially approved by the Defense Department under Trump's nemesis President Barack Obama.

IT'S ALIVE! Trumpcare Is Back From The Dead And Ready To Take You Health Care Away!

Tonight the Senate voted on a motion to proceed with a repeal of the Affordable Care Act. The procedural measure, which passed 51-50, allows Congress to move ahead with its goal to repeal Obamacare.

With two Republicans voting no on the motion the votes were tied at fifty a piece.

This meant that Vice President Mike Pence had to come down and cast the deciding vote.

As the Senate voted on the motion to proceed, protesters in the Senate gallery began chanting...

Kill the bill! Don’t kill us!

Simultaneously protesters outside the building, including ADAPT (an organization of disability rights activists) and the National Council on Independent Living, gathered into a group and began shouting down the Senate's decision as well.

As the police dragged protestors and placed them under arrest the senate continued with the business of taking their health care away.

Only hours after voting to open debate the Republican's voted on their first in a series of proposals to repeal and replace Obamacare called "The Better Care Reconciliation Act".

It was voted down, 43-57, with nine Republicans voting no.

The senators were technically rejecting a procedural motion for the legislation, but this vote largely served as a proxy for a vote on the bill.

But the Republican’s hopes of passing something, anything, were alive as a scaled-down version of repeal or a “skinny repeal” looked likely to pass as fifty Republicans voted to open debate on it.

The so called "skinny repeal", while smaller in scale, has already been rated by the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) and would lead to 15 million fewer people with health insurance, increase premium by 20 percent and effectively put Obamacare in the death spiral that Republicans have been dreaming of.

All this before the wheelchair bound protestors had made bail.

If the "skinny repeal" passes I wonder what those that voted for Trump on his promise to deliver insurance that had "lower premiums" and would cover "everybody" will be thinking?

Donald Trump Just Gave An Embarrassing, Childish And Inappropriate Speech In Front Of The 2017 National Boy Scout Jamboree (FULL VIDEO)

On Monday Donald Trump traveled to Glen Jean, West Virginia, to deliver an address to the Boy Scouts of America 2017 National Scout Jamboree.

Trump, perhaps not realizing that he was speaking to young children, turned the event into an embarrassingly self aggrandizing campaign-style rally.

Perhaps it was the fact that there were an estimated 30 to 40 thousand in attendance that got Donny's juices flowing but it was soon apparent that Trump would not be sticking to the script.

Trump starting off his rambling address by complaining that the "the fake media, fake news," would downplay the size of his audience.

Boy, you have a lot of people here. The press will say it’s about 200 people. It looks like about 45,000 people. You set a record today. You set a record. That’s a great honor, believe me."

This despite the fact that a news release prior to the event said they anticipated would be more than 40,000 people whether Trump showed or not.

Trump then said he'd put aside the "fake news" and other issues in Washington...

"I said, who the hell wants to speak about politics when I'm in front of the Boy Scouts?"

Despite his assertion Trump dove into his campaign highlight reel anyway.

When Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price, a former Scout, came out onstage, Trump decided it was time to tell the kids about Obamacare. He told them the upcoming vote in the Senate that could mean the repeal of the Affordable Care Act, President Barack Obama's signature domestic legislation...

"Hopefully he's going to get the votes tomorrow to start our path toward killing this horrible thing known as Obamacare that's really hurting us,"

Trump then addressed Tom Price personally and told him if he didn't get the votes...

"I'll say, 'Tom, you're fired,"

Then Trump began listing off the virtues of Boy Scouts Trump saying...

"As the scout law says, a scout is trustworthy, loyal. We could use some more loyalty, I will tell you that."

Trump's comments came the very same day he threw his Attorney General and longtime supporter, Jeff Sessions, under the bus when he called him "beleaguered" in an early morning tweet storm.

Trump then made reference to his number one nemesis President Obama not having attended a jamboree prompting "boos" from the kids when he asked them...

"By the way, just a question, did President Obama ever come to a jamboree?"

Then Trump went into a truly bizarre, long, meandering story about a real-estate developer named William Levitt and engaged in “interesting” activities on his yacht, meeting Levitt at a hot New York party, Levitt going "personally bankrupt" and how Levitt’s life lost “momentum”.

Here is a small segment of the amazingly inappropriate story...

[Levitt] he sold his company for a tremendous amount of money. At the time especially — this was a long time ago... sold his company for a tremendous amount of money. And he went out and bought a big yacht, and he had a very interesting life. I won’t go on any more than that because you’re Boy Scouts, so I’m not going to tell you what he did.” [Audience boos.] “Should I tell you? Should I tell you?” [Audience shouts, “Yes!”] “Oh, you’re Boy Scouts, but you know life. You know life. So... look at you. Who would think this is the Boy Scouts, right?. So, he had a very, very interesting life, and the company that bought his company was a big conglomerate …” - Trump explains that years later Levitt bought his company back - “He so badly wanted it, he got bored with this life of yachts and sailing and all of the things he did in the south of France and other places. You won’t get bored, right? You know, truthfully, you’re workers. You’ll get bored, too. Believe me. Of course, having a few good years like that isn’t so bad.

After that uplifting story it was time to regale the kids with how he won the election!

Trump started by fondly remembering his victory against Hillary Clinton asking the Scouts...

"Do you remember that famous night on television, November 8?"

He then told the children that the Republicans had a tremendous disadvantage in the Electoral College and that the popular vote (which he lost to Clinton) "is much easier."

He went on to tell the Scouts his victory was...

"an unbelievable tribute to you and all of the other millions and millions of people that came out and voted for Make America Great Again."

Trump then thanks his audience, which consisted largely of children, for voting for him last November.

Trump even went into his shtick on the "War On Christmas" telling the kids in attendance...

In the Scout Oath, you pledge on your honor to do your best and to do your duty to God and your country. And by the way, under the Trump administration, you’ll be saying ‘Merry Christmas’ again when you go shopping. Believe me. Merry Christmas."

Here is the complete video of the embarrassment...

The Boy Scouts of America issued a statement in response to Trump's appearance on Monday, clarifying that the Scouts did not endorse Trump nor did the group support a particular "position, product, service, political candidate or philosophy," and that it is the customary tradition to extend an invitation to the sitting president.

Dozens of former Boy Scouts condemned President Donald Trump’s address Monday to nearly 40,000 young men gathered at the group’s 2017 National Scout Jamboree, saying efforts to politicize his speech were “embarrassing,” “mortifying” and a “disgusting display.”

Here are some responses to Trump's performance...

To Celebrate "Made in America Week" Trump Just Applied For 76 Foreign Worker Visas For His Mar-A-Lago Club And His Florida Golf Course

He's not laughing with you he's laughing at you.

In his string of theme weeks Donald Trump announced that the last seven days would be "Made in America Week".

Don kicked it of on Monday by posing with fire engines, holding baseball bats, and even donning a ridiculous cowboy hat.

But that was just the warm up for what was to be the "Made in America Week" grand finale'.

In the absolute best example of "Do what I say, not what I do" Donald Trump requested 76 visas to hire foreign nationals for his Mar-a-Lago Palm Beach club and one of his Florida golf courses.

The filings came after federal officials approved an additional 15,000 of the temporary, seasonal H-2B work visas for the upcoming budget year.

And wouldn't ya' know it seventy of the requested visas were for Mar-a-Lago, where the Trump property wants to hire 35 waiters, 20 cooks and 15 maids... Just not American waiters, cooks and maids.

To top it all off there was also an additional request for a six cooks to work at the Trump National Golf Club in Jupiter, Fla.

So much for Trump's call to “Buy American and hire American,” that he preached while on the campaign trail and even had the gall to sign an executive order on!

US Intelligence Report Says Attorney General Jeff Sessions Lied About Discussing Trump Campaign With Russian Ambassador Kislyak

Ol' Jefferson Beauregard Sessions III is in trouble for lying about the Russians again.

Donald Trump's pick for attorney General has been caught in yet another "mistruth" about his meetings with the Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak.

Of course the first lie ol' Jeffery told was when he failed to disclose any meeting with any Russians on his security clearance forms. Jeff repeated that very same lie at his AG confirmation hearings when he said he had no...

communications with the Russians.

That was untrue and the media called him out on it when it was reported that Sessions met Kislyak at least two times in 2016: once at the Republican National Convention in July, and once at his Senate office in September.  There was even a third meeting during a reception the Mayflower hotel in Washington but Sessions denied it was a "private meeting".

After being caught in the thrice-fold lie, Sessions amended his statement saying that he had forgotten about the meeting with Kislyak when he testified before the Senate Intelligence Committee in June...

If any brief interaction occurred in passing with the Russian ambassador during that reception, I do not remember it,

This little misunderstanding led to Sessions recusing himself from overseeing the FBI’s investigation into whether Trump associates colluded with Russians to influence the 2016 election.

At a press conference in which he announced his recusal Sessions said...

I never had meetings with Russian operatives or Russian intermediaries about the Trump campaign. And the idea that I was part of a quote, ‘continuing exchange of information’ during the campaign between Trump surrogates and intermediaries for the Russian government is totally false.

This is where things start to get a little dicey for Beauregard as last night it was reported that U.S. intelligence agencies intercepted a conversation in which Jeffery's buddy, Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak, claimed he had discussed Donald Trump’s campaign and policy positions with then-Sen. Jeff Sessions during the 2016 election campaign.


The intercepted conversations suggest Kislyak and Sessions had “substantive” conversations about Trump’s position on Russia, and how he saw his relationship with the country’s government should he win the election.

This is once again the polar opposite of what AG Sessions claimed over and over over and over again when asked about thais very situation.

While U.S. officials say they had no way to verify if Kislyak was accurately recounting his conversations with Sessions.

Here's the kicker.

The report comes just two days after Trump blasted Sessions for recusing himself from the Russia probe in an interview with The New York Times. In the interview Trump declared said he wouldn’t have hired Sessions as attorney general had he known Sessions would recuse himself as he believes this what has led to his present problems with special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into all things Trump/Russia.

This has led to speculation that Trump had the info about Kislyak released as an excuse to fire ol' Beauregard!

That's ice cold Donald.

SPICY OUT: Sean Spicer Calls It Quits As White House Press Secretary

Alas, Sean "alternative facts" Spicer has resigned as the White House press secretary effective immediately.

It was learned that Spicer had left his post after he tweeted that he would continue to serve through August, noting it’s been “an honor & a privilege” to work under Donald Trump....

It was reported that Spicer resigned after he was told that Trump loyalist and family friend Anthony Scaramucci was named White House communications director. When Spicer, a loyal employee who had lied through his teeth about everything from crowd sizes to travel bans to widespread voter fraud to claims that President Obama ordered wiretapping, expressed his objection to the appointment of Scaramucci Trump said that he was going to hire him anyway.

Sean, suffering the one final indignity, announced his intention to leave his role after that.

Scaramucci then went on to deliver Friday afternoon’s press briefing announcing that deputy press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders will take over Spicer’s role.

I think in the end Melissa McCarthy's imitation of Spicer on Saturday Night Live will be missed more than Spicer.

Donald Trump Is Considering A Presidential Pardon For... HIMSELF!!!

Because he is the bestest and greatest leader of the free world with nothing to hide and has the most achievements of anyone in the history of holding the office Donald Trump has asked his team of specially hired lawyers to look into whether he can... umm... ahh.... get himself off.

At the behest of Trump himself his cadre of mouthpieces were told to explore his power to grant pardons to his aides, his family and most importantly himself!

It's not that he's guilty of anything mind you it's just this Robert Mueller investigation into whether he, his family or his aides colluded with the Russian's to effect the outcome of the 2016 election thingy has got Donald all kinds of spooked.

According to the Washington Post Trump has asked his legal advisers about the constitutional power of pardons, although another source noted that Trump sought only to further his understanding of the privilege... Y'know, for a friend.

The pardon reports started to swirl as rumors surfaced that Trump has directed his staff to look into Mueller’s potential "conflicts of interests" to see if there is any way to remove the specially appointed counsel from the Justice Department’s investigation.

One of the apparent conflicts of interest Trump want's them to look into an alleged dispute over membership fees between Mueller and Trump’s Virginia golf club from when he was a member there.

Sounds pretty serious!

So what has Trump so jumpy? Apparently it is the whispers that Robert Mueller’s team is examining transactions involving the Trump’s businesses and those of his associates, including but not limited to Russian purchases of apartments in Trump buildings, Trump’s involvement in a controversial SoHo development with Russian associates, the 2013 Miss Universe pageant in Moscow and Trump’s sale of a Florida mansion to a Russian oligarch in 2008.

In other words money laundering.

In an interview Wednesday in The New York Times, Trump said Mueller would be crossing a “red line” if he looked into the Trump family’s finances beyond any ties with Russia.

Consider that line crossed Donny. Your move.

Senator John McCain Has Brain Cancer

Senator John McCain, a war hero, six term Senator and 2008 Republican presidential nominee, has brain cancer.

The news of McCain's diagnosis was learned when his office released a statement from the Mayo Clinic that the six term Senator has a glioblastoma, one of the most common but also one of the most malignant brain tumors.

Mr. McCain’s office said he was recuperating at his home in Arizona and...

appreciates the outpouring of support he has received over the last few days.

Mr. McCain learned of the tumor after undergoing surgery late last week at the Mayo Clinic Hospital in Phoenix to remove a blood clot above his left eye.

Medical experts said the type of tumor Mr. McCain has is particularly aggressive. The median survival of a glioblastoma is about 16 months.

Senator Edward M. Kennedy of Massachusetts and Vice President Joe Biden's son, Beau Biden, died from the exact same kind of brain tumor in 2009.

Senator McCain is the son of a prominent family dedicated to military service, was the public face of the mistreatment of American prisoners at the North Vietnamese camp known as the Hanoi Hilton. It was there where as a Navy pilot he was confined and tortured for over five years.

A few years into his imprisonment McCain was set to be released due to his ranking but instead chose to remain with his fellow soldiers until they were released as well.

McCain was tortured severely for his refusal and sustained injuries that plague him even today from the repeated beatings.

He was released from captivity on March 14, 1973.

After he retired from the Navy as a captain in 1981 McCain became interested in politics and ran for the congress in Arizona, easily winning his first election in 1982. He then went on to win the Senate seat given up by the Arizona icon Barry Goldwater in 1986.

In 2008 McCain ran for the presidency of the United States. He faced an uphill battle given public discontentment with the United States-led war in Iraq and overall fatigue with the administration of George W. Bush. and lost the bid to an upstart freshman Senator named Barack Obama.

Following his defeat McCain returned to the Senate where he continued to serve as a maverick known for his honesty, truth telling and no-nonsense style has earned him a level of bipartisan respect rarely seen in these times of political division.

Mr. McCain has stated that he would decide when to return to the Senate as he consults with his medical advisers.

Let's hope it's soon and for several more terms.

Push Trump Off A Cliff Again (GAME)

Best. Game. Ever.

Click image to go to game!

REVEALED! Eighth Person At Trump Jr.'s Secret Russia Meeting Finally Exposed And He's A Money Launderer Who Works For Trump's Russian Business Partner

There are now eight confirmed attendees of the June 2016 meeting that the eldest son of Donald Trump took after being promised damaging information on his father’s presidential election opponent, Hillary Clinton.

It started off with Donald Trump Jr. meeting with a lawyer about adoption laws and has turned into a veritable clown car of who's who in the Trump administration and a squad of Russian power players with ties to Putin and the Kremlin.

As of last week it was reported that there were a total of eight people in the room... The problem was that it wasn't known who those people were.

Now we know...

First out of the gate was (1) Donny Junior.

Then came the Russian lawyer, (2) Natalia Veselnitskaya, who it appears was working hand in glove with the Russian government in her efforts to repeal Russian sanctions for dirt on Hillary Clinton.

Then came the revelation that Trump's son-in-law and senior advisor (3) Jared Kusner was in attendance.

In addition to Kushner it was also revealed that candidate Trump's then-campaign manager (4) Paul Manafort was invited to the ever growing meeting.

Then the emails came and with them the reveal of more invitees.

We found out that (5) Rob Goldstone, the man who helped Trump set up the 2013 Miss Universe pageant in Moscow and sent the emails arranging the meeting, was also present.

In addition to Goldstone we also have Russian-American interpreter (6) Anatoli Samochornov, who attended serving as the interpreter for Veselnitskaya who does not speak English.

Then there was (7) Rinat Akhmetshin, a Russian lobbyist, former Soviet military counter-intelligence officer who was hired by Veselnitskaya’s organization to work on overturning the Magnitsky sanctions.

And then there was number eight.

Just who was the eighth man out and and why was he the last one to be revealed? Perhaps it is because his presence in the room is the most damning of all those whom attended.

The previously unnamed attendee is a man named (8) Irakly Kaveladze.

Irakly "Ike" Kaveladze, who was born in the former Soviet Republic of Georgia in 1965, was implicated in a US money laundering scheme in 2000 in which his company, International Business Creations, set up more than 2,000 corporations in Delaware for Russian brokers and then opened the bank accounts for them. Kaveladze did this all without knowing who owned the corporations but taking the brokers word for it that they were on the up and up.

The New York Times reported at the time that more than $1.4 billion was transferred through the accounts that he opened.

Surprisingly Kaveladze was not charged in the money laundering scheme.

According to a public records search, Kaveladze immigrated to the U.S. in 1991 and now lives in California and is presently the senior vice president for Russian real estate developer Aras Agalarov who's company had tried to build a Tower in Moscow with Donald Trump.

You might remember Aras Agalarov's name as his son, Amin, is a mid-level pop star in Russia and is represented by non other than... wait for it... Rob Goldstone.

Now we have to ask just how does a Russian born man, who works for Donald Trump's biggest business partner in that country and has a history of money laundering for that country fit into this picture. At this point I can only guess that it will have something to do with Russian oligarchs, lots unwashed money and shady Donald Trump land deals.

The revelation of Kaveladze's presence at the meeting just happens to coincide as special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation, one of several probes looking into possible collusion between Trump’s campaign and Russian officials, is now said to be actively looking into Trump Jr.’s meeting. This is seen as Mueller declaring that Junior's meeting is at this point the clearest indication yet of the Trump’s campaign collusion with the Russia.
