That NK may soon have this weapon is scary; that r intel again claiming an adversary has WOMD & that T may now bang the drums of war is even more so. http://goo.gl/xEUS8JFaced w/a rising wave of addiction/misery/crime/dth, Repub Senators now speak w/moving compassion re the real ppl crippled by addiction.

But that addiction was considered a blk prob, so instead TV brought us endless pixs of desperate/blk/thin/ravaged bodies & so-called libs warned us of super predators.

You’ll understand why he just deleted them.(Saturday, Jul 22. 2017 05:45 PM)“I know a lot about health care,” Trump declared in a Wed interview w/ NY Times. “From the moment the insurance, you’re 21 years old, u start working & you’re paying $12/yr for ins, & by the time you’re 70, u get a nice(Saturday, Jul 22. 2017 02:57 PM)plan.” The numbers Trump cites seem 2b4 life ins rather than hlth ins. This isnt 1st first time T has so dramatically underestimated hlth ins costs. In a May interview w/Economist, he estimated hlth coverage should cost $15/mo. Perhaps T thinks only ins u need is life. Trumpcare: If u get sick, die quick & collect. http://goo.gl/mnBn5ZMore on Scaramucci. He’s a former VP of Goldman Sachs who went on to found the hedge fund SkyBridge Capital in ’05.

He was also the close Trump ally CNN linked 2a RU investment fund they believed was being investigated by the Senate — an article CNN later decided it could not fully stand by & that led to 3 prominent CNN journalists resigning, CNN retracting the story, & apologizing. http://goo.gl/cY2Gvm http://goo.gl/FrN8BLhalginsberg(Saturday, Jul 22. 2017 07:53 AM)Thanks Shade – good to know Dr. Goebbels is taking over as Minister of Propaganda.Who is Scaramucci?

And at a WH briefing Fri, Scaramucci stroked T speaking repeatedly of his “love” 4the Pres.(Friday, Jul 21. 2017 11:03 PM)But worse, Scaramucci apparently also understands the type of “loyalty” T wants. A few yrs ago, while interviewing PR firms, a interviewee said Scaramucci was blunt about what he was looking for. During his 90-min meeting, Scaramucci told this person: “I need someone who’s prepared to go to the mat and lie for me.” http://goo.gl/HtgGB9T Jr’s meeting also inc a Russian accused of international hacking.

This detail is buried 12 paragraphs into a feature on CNN’s combative relationship w/ The Apprentice. Which is bizarre, given that it’s an open confession of corruption by a senior WH official. http://goo.gl/87Nbk2The Federal Election Commission (FEC) is being urged 2look into what appears 2b micro-targeting by Russians of potential voters in their push 2get as much fake-news & anti-HC propaganda read as poss — inc by sabotaging(Saturday, Jul 15. 2017 06:34 PM)Bernie Sanders’ Facebook pages.

It would have been much cheaper. http://goo.gl/bBjuqVT initially promised 2keep but then reversed & fired Preet Bharara, a NY US Atty who was noted4 fighting public corruption & Wall St crime. 2mo later, just b4 trial, DOJ abruptly settled a $230M RU-mob $$$-laundering(Friday, Jul 14. 2017 03:09 AM)civil forfeiture case PB had filed 4just $6M!
