More fake news from a Leftie posing as a distinguished scholar. Heckuva job, Kruggie.

2017_09 30 Krugman NYT fake news

There is an outbreak of a “c” disease in Puerto Rico but it’s conjunctivitis, also known as pink eye, not cholera.  Pink eye is common; I’d wager most of us have had it at least once.  But according to the CDC, the bug that causes cholera is not endemic to the U.S., Puerto Rico, or the U.S. Virgin Islands.

A lot of people who voted for this Dumbocrat “wasn’t educated”

Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D., Texas) has a well-documented history of rude and abusive behavior toward her staff and the public, and of lying and making absurdly ignorant remarks, often in prepared statements. Below is a short list of examples.

2014 Jackson Lee lies

  • In 2014, Jackson Lee declared the U.S. Constitution to be 400 years old.
  • In 2013, Jackson Lee called herself a “freed slave.”

In 2011, at a hearing on the radicalization of Islam in America, Jackson Lee sounded off at length and beyond the time allotted to her about how horrible it was that they were there, because apparently talking about the radicalization of Islam is an insult to all Muslims. Or something.

  • In 2010, Jackson Lee said Tea Party members used to belong to the KKK.
  • In 2010, Jackson Lee she said, “Today, we have two Vietnams, side by side, North and South, exchanging and working.” At that time, Jackson Lee was a member of the House Foreign Affairs Committee.
  • In 2009, Jackson Lee spoke at pedophile Michael Jackson’s memorial service, calling him an “icon” and “someone who will be honored forever and forever and forever and forever.”
  • In 1997, Jackson Lee asked if the Mars Pathfinder had succeeded in taking a picture of the flag planted on Mars by Neil Armstrong in 1969. At that time, Jackson Lee was a member of the House Committee on Science.

According to Jackson Lee’s Wikipedia bio, she was graduated from both Yale University and the University of Virginia Law School. Methinks she should be considered for the role of poster person for the effort to stop Affirmative Action in our universities.

The Swamp Claims Another Victim

It is appalling how the media takes such an intense interest in investigative journalism only when we have a republican president. Donald Trump has gone through a lot of advisers for a lot of reasons. Gen. McMaster and his son in law Jared Kushner are giving him terrible advice and Gen. Kelly is keeping a lot of important facts from him. All this is to the delight of a savage power that wants nothing more than to destroy him. If not him, then his surrogates. The latest is HHS secretary, Dr. Tom Price.

HHS Secretary Tom Price Resigns After Private Flights Scandal
Secretary of Health and Human Services Tom Price has resigned, according to the White House after a series of reports uncovered expensive private flights billed to taxpayers for travel.


HHS Secretary Price Resigns Over Travel; Did Obama Aides do the Same?
But let’s also stipulate a couple of things. With President Trump in office, the mainstream media seems to have regained an excitement for investigative journalism that it had lost during Barack Obama’s time in office. I’d like to see an investigation now of the travel habits of Obama cabinet members not involved in national security. I’d be willing to bet it would be revealing.

No One Embodied This Failure Of GOP Leadership Better Than Tom Price
Price’s main job for the White House was to get an Obamacare repeal passed through Congress — a job he failed miserably at. However, that failure is now likely going to be overshadowed by his extensive misuse of public money.
Instead of making the interests of citizens the priority, Republicans are left fighting for their policy in the framework created by their opposition.
The same thing happened with attempting to repeal Obamacare, the issue Andrea Mitchell was able to attack for the lack of diversity among its crafters. Democrats shrieked that millions of people were going to die thanks to evil white men while Republicans made obscure arguments about federalism.
There’s a reason Obamacare has survived repeal after multiple attempts by Trump and his allies in Congress.

Media Celebrate Tom Price’s Resignation As ‘Scalp’ For Politico
Reporters celebrated Price’s resignation as a “scalp” for Politico reporters Dan Diamond and Rachana Pradhan. The two reporters first revealed Price’s use of planes, which reportedly exceeded more than $1 million in taxpayer funds.
One Politico reporter joked that the outlet’s reporters were going to dump “a cooler of Gatorade” on Diamond and Pradhan.
Maggie Severns Retweeted Rachana D. Pradhan

.@rachanadixit and @ddiamond we are gathering a cooler of Gatorade to dump over you at your desks @ now


Flight furor: Obama officials also took pricey, non-commercial planes
Top figures during President Barack Obama’s tenure who used non-commercial planes for travel included then-attorney generals Eric Holder and Loretta Lynch, then-FBI director Robert Mueller, and then-CIA director and defense secretary Leon Panetta.
Leon Panetta, who served as both CIA director and defense secretary during the Obama years, frequently used a government airplane to commute back and forth from Washington to California nearly every weekend at taxpayer expense.
The Washington Times reported then that each flight cost about $32,000 but Panetta only had to pay $630 per trip, because that was the cost of an equivalent round-trip commercial flight. It noted that the government required defense secretaries to use a military plane for travel, and Panetta had the approval of Obama to fly home every weekend.

Special counsel investigators start questioning White House staffers
Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s team had been expected to start interviewing White House staffers, having already sought a wide variety of documents related to their probe of Russia’s attempted meddling in the 2016 election.
In a separate development, Fox News has learned that congressional investigators as well as federal agents are scrutinizing a Trump campaign national security meeting in March 2016 at Washington, D.C.’s Old Post Office, now the site of the Trump International Hotel.
