Retiring Republican Senator Bob Corker says things like White House needing adult supervision etc.

Trump says things like too chicken to run again.

Glad to see them all providing a unified front to oppose the Democrats.

Mayor of San Jaun accused Trump of genocide.

Most of news deals with Liberal Harvey Weinstein harassing raping actresses models and any other pretty girls he came across. Hillary finally calls him out.
I want him to squeal about the island with Bill Clinton.

Trump issues executive order on health care insurance.

Pen and phone doesn't look so good to Liberals now.

The irony is that Trump is simply abiding by a federal court ruling that said the payments were not legal. It's too bad he didn't do it his first month in office, but back then the GOP congressional leadership was still pretending to oppose Obamacare.
God, grant me serenity to accept the things I can't change
Courage to change the things I can
And the firepower to make a difference.

Trump won't certify Iran deal.
Ok, Congress has more to do besides NK, tax reform, infrastructure, healthcare, hurricanes, and oh yes, budget. Now it's foreign policy too...

They can't be very busy if they have time to grandstand about banning bump stocks.
This is my opinion. There are many like it, but this one is mine.

Perhaps Mr. Obama should have thought of this when devising a "treaty" that did not have the advise and consent of the senate. I am sure that the veterans wounded by Iran IED's support Trump. Israel does. Europe only cares about the dollars to be made in Iran. As long as we hear "Death to America" for the millionth time I won't be upset about cancellation of this stupid deal. The bad thing is that this will hurt the Iranian people who are really good people under an oppressive government. This Iran deal was about as good as the N.K. deal and look where we are with that.

White House will again say Merry Christmas.

I could not have imagined when I was 10 that in my life time this would be a real statement.

God bless you President Trump. You may not be prefect, but your awesome compared to the alternative.

Congress advise and conscent? Read the article.
"That requirement is a matter of US law — specifically a law called the Iran Nuclear Agreement Review Act (INARA), put in place in May 2015 to give Congress oversight over an Obama administration agreement of which many members were skeptical. INARA requires the president to publicly certify every 90 days that Iran is in technical compliance with the deal and, more broadly, that “suspension of sanctions [is] appropriate and proportionate to the specific and verifiable measures taken by Iran with respect to terminating its illicit nuclear program” as well as “vital to the national security interests of the United States.”
The agreement was supposed to focus on nuclear development, not all Iran behavior. It apparently provided more insight to Iran's nuclear program than we had previously achieved "trusting but verifying" Russia's. Note that the Secretary of Defense, retired USMC General Mattis, had testified before Congress than certification should be made.

Well to be fair they haven't actually done much of anything for the past year... if you and i were so productive, we'd also be getting paid- but it would be called unemployment benefits. :lol:
