I can do better.

This is what Trump actually said during his El Paso rally:

"A young man who's got very little going for himself, except he's got a great first name. He has -- he challenged us, so we have let's say 35,000 people tonight and he has 200 people, 300 people. Not too good."

Trump is already saying the wall is being built when it's not FFS. And that's with no agreement and no funding!
Could be fake news, but it looks like a wall is being built in New Mexico.

"The wall replaced waist-high vehicle barriers".

Replacing existing wall is not included in Trumps new wall.

Not forgetting that the funding for repairs and replacement of existing damaged sections was signed off under Obama. The republicans have had total control for two years and have done nothing other than to give their rich donors huge tax cuts...

oh and to empower women to join politics, to run for positions

House Intel chair Adam Schiff says that Trump's refusal to issue a report on Jamal Khashoggi's murder underscores the need for congressional scrutiny of Trump's possible financial ties to the Saudi regime. "This further underscores the importance."

https://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/2019/02/12...

Congressional Republicans are angry with President Trump for blowing off their demands for a report on Saudi Arabia’s role in the murder of Post contributing columnist Jamal Khashoggi, Politico reports. They say they are going to act — no, really, they mean it this time — to compel the president to supply that report, in accordance with a law requiring him to deliver such an assessment to Congress, now that they’ve solicited it from the administration.

Which raises an interesting question: Just how far are Republicans willing to go in holding Trump accountable for his ongoing protection of the Saudis, anyway? What will they say when House Democrats begin digging into Trump’s finances, to try to determine whether financial motives help explain it?


Schiff says there's a reason the Trump admin has probably blown off the deadline to produce a report on Khashoggi's murder. "I presume that they haven’t produced one, because we know what the conclusion would be," Schiff said. "Apparently they don’t want to put that in writing."

American Media, the parent company of the National Enquirer, has a negative net worth of about $203,000,000.
Possibly not a good time to take on one of the richest men?

So while trump was desperately seeking hundreds of millions of dollars in loans from Deutsche Bank, and Jared Kushner’s father was asking the Qatari government for financing, Kshner was selling state secrets to finance his business, the National Enquirer, a third Trump-related business was seeking a cash infusion from Saudi Arabia to offset its billion dollar debt.

The Democratic Party has filed a formal request for a new election in North Carolina's 9th Congressional District over widespread allegations of ballot fraud engineered by Republican campaign operatives during the 2018 primary and general elections.

https://lawandcrime.com/high-profile/dem-files-for...

Republican Mark Harris bested Democrat Dan McCready by 905 votes, according to unofficial tallies. Since election night, however, elections experts have alleged the GOP’s victory was tainted by fraudulent harvesting and/or destruction of Democratic Party absentee ballots.

The most, the bigliest ever

The national debt has passed a new milestone, topping $22,000,000,000,000 for the first time.

The Treasury Department’s daily statement showed Tuesday that total outstanding public debt stands at $22.01 trillion. It stood at $19.95 trillion when President Donald Trump took office on Jan. 20, 2017.

The debt figure has been accelerating since the passage of Trump’s $1.5 trillion tax cut in December 2017 and action by Congress last year to increase spending on domestic and military programs.

he Senate have done a good thing

The Senate on Tuesday passed a sweeping public lands conservation bill, designating more than one million acres of wilderness for environmental protection and permanently reauthorizing a federal program to pay for conservation measures.

The Senate voted 92 to 8 in favor of the bill, offering a rare moment of bipartisanship in a divided chamber and a rare victory for environmentalists at a time when the Trump administration is working aggressively to strip away protections on public lands and open them to mining and drilling.

“This package gives our country a million acres of new wilderness, protects a million acres of public lands from future mining, permanently reauthorizes the Land and Water Conservation Fund and balances conservation and recreation for the long term,” said Representative Raúl Grijalva, the Arizona Democrat who heads the House Natural Resources Committee. “It’s one of the biggest bipartisan wins for this country I’ve ever seen in Congress.”

among the most consequential provisions is the permanent reauthorization of the Land and Water Conservation Fund, a federal program established in 1964 that uses fees and royalties paid by oil and gas companies drilling in federal waters to pay for onshore conservation programs.

Donald Trump claimed that attendance at his Monday night El Paso rally swelled to 10,000 attendees, thanks, in part, to a special relaxation of the rules, compliments of the fire marshal. “The arena holds 8,000,” Trump said, “and thank you fire department, they got in about ten thousand.”

The truth is the El Paso venue could lawfully accommodate 6,500 persons, and that’s the number they allowed in, no more, hence the El Paso fire department statement of number put out.

"Bezos, the world’s richest person, has the resources to fight. On Monday alone, his wealth increased by a bigger dollar figure than all of AMI’s revenue for the first half of this fiscal year".

That puts things in perspective...

I know it isn't how these things work, but imagine if Bezos bought the debt, owned the company, and opened the safe of Trump secrets.....
