President Donald Trump said Tuesday that Alabama voters must elect embattled Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore, who is facing multiple allegations of sexual misconduct, to prevent "liberal" Democrat Doug Jones from winning next month.

over the course of time they create for themselves a legal system that authorizes it
and a moral code that glorifies it. - Frédéric Bastiat

Trump played golf with Jack and Tiger. Not sure if together or separately.

Melania shows off the White House Christmas decorations. Many make a big deal. Looked very pretty and I guess the big deal was that they were Christmas decorations.

Trump won't campaign for Roy Moore in Alabama.

Former Trump adviser Flynn pleads guilty to lying to FBI
Trump’s former national security adviser admitted to lying about his conversations with Russia’s ambassador to the United States during the transition period before Trump’s inauguration. Flynn is the fourth former Trump associate to face charges in the investigation, the first who actually served in Trump’s White House

Comey's FBI department previously had suggested his "lying" was just his inability to remember things rather than an attempt to hide something. They felt it was not a criminal act. Most people should be smarter than answer questions posed by an FBI agent if they are fuzzy on the details.

But I'm still not sure where they are going with this unless they want to say that Trump, after the election, but before he became the actual president had no authority to conduct foreign policy, thus broke the law, by violating the Logan Act. Flynn spoke with the Russians after Trump was elected and attempted to get them to postpone a vote at the UN on Israel.

Sure wish Jeff Sessions would get a special prosecutor going on other more important things that went on during the Obama Administration.

Trump GOP big legislative win as Senate vote late last night passes the Tax Cut/Reform. First major overhaul in 30 years.

I did not expect when, for the first time I voted a straight Republican ticket, that afterwards their first act would be to raise my taxes.

Did you really think the Republicans would pass a flat tax with no loopholes for their biggest donors?

A flat tax would be a giant cut in taxes for their donors, no reason for a loophole.

Here is a new Trump tax calculator, enter your 2016 information and see how much your taxes went up or down. Mine went UP as I expected by 8 or 9 percent over what I paid in 2016. I guess Trump is giving me coal for Christmas.

Neither the Senate Bill nor the Republican does anything to reduce the unmarried penalty in the tax code, so it's obviously a political stunt rather than a sincere attempt at income tax reform. Oh well. I formed my LLC this year expecting their smoke and mirrors. Let's see what gets signed into law, and I will structure my income to make use of whatever loopholes I can get away with.
Keep your powder dry.

Im not sure that what end result will be will be Trumps’s tax plan. It sure would be funny if he kicked it back to the house and senate!

Until there is a single bill passed by both House and Senate no one knows what the effect is on their taxes. I have so little trust in Congress that I look forward to nothing except being screwed over by FedGov and it's bureaucratic swamp.

SCOTUS upholds travel ban lawfully enacted by POTUS
http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2017/12/04/supreme-court-permits-full-enforcement-trump-travel-ban.html
Handing the White House a huge judicial victory, the U.S. Supreme Court on Monday ruled in favor of President Trump’s travel ban affecting residents of six majority-Muslim countries.
The justices said the policy can take full effect despite multiple legal challenges against it that haven’t yet made their way through the judicial system.
The ban applies to people from Syria, Chad, Iran, Libya, Somalia and Yemen.


President Trump visits Utah and rolls back Clinton, Obama land grab
http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2017/12/04/trump-shrinks-utah-monuments-created-by-obama-clinton.html
Capping months of speculation, President Trump on Monday signed a pair of executive orders to significantly shrink two of Utah’s national monuments – Bears Ears and the Grand Staircase-Escalante – that were created by his Democratic predecessors.
The controversial move was pitched by Trump as a win for states' rights and follows an April review conducted by Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke on the boundaries of large national monuments.

House votes to Impeach President Donald Trump.

The resolution was forced to a vote in the House by Representative Al Green who represents an area Southwest of Houston. He supports gun control, fed. easing, abortion, the impeachment of Donald Trump and Pakistan. His resolution was based not on Russian collusion, but on Trump's support of white supremacy.

http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2017/12 ... ution.html

Not fake news. Apparently really happened today. Edit: Fake news "Lawmakers did not actually vote on the actual articles of impeachment, but on a procedural measure that would have led to a vote on them." Sorry. I got carried away.

Failed with only 58 votes in favor.

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article ... pital.html

Trump announced he will move the US Embassy to Jerusalem, that he recognized as Israel's capital. He got Bipartisan support. How about that. Rest of world condemned including the Pope.

In other news, Al Franken is expected to resign on Thursday.

More fake news . Sorry not resigning just yet.

On November 1, 2016 could you have seen this future today.

90% of Trump coverage negative.

Al Franken did resign sort of.

Cute female skier frormer Tigher Woods GF, Lindsay Vonn says she won't represent Trump in Olympics. Then had a bad skiing accident injuring her back. Get well soon so you can not represent Trump.

Since the resignation of Franken, new calls for Trump to resign because of sexual harrassment. Lots of air time for the alleged women.
