Is it all downhill here? Can Trump's rule of chaos, truly be brought to an end?

Can a man with no care for convention be displaced?

United States of Anarchy

Welcome to the United States of Anarchy .

Health - care legislation languishes without presidential leadership . The Senate fails to pass a measure crafted by Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, fails to pass an outright repeal and even fails to pass a proposal to go back to the drawing board .

Huge majorities in Congress , declining to bless President Trump ’ s love affair with Vladimir Putin ’ s regime, vote for new sanctions against Russian officials; legislation passes the Senate , 98 to 2 , and the House, 419 to 3 . The veto- proof rebuke to the president seizes a foreign- policy function from an unreliable commander in chief .
As the deadline looms to avoid a default on U . S . debt, Susan Collins (R-Maine ), a Senate committee chairman , is heard on a hot mic saying she ’ s “ worried ” about the president ’ s stability and calling his administration’ s handling of spending matters “ just incredibly irresponsible. ” She says she doubts Trump even knows how the budget process works .
Trump, baffling and alarming allies, goes on the attack against his attorney general , Jeff Sessions , who was an outspoken supporter of Trump’ s candidacy. Trump clearly wants Sessions to resign , but Sessions is ignoring him . Sessions ’ s former colleagues in the Senate back him over his boss — and they hope Trump isn ’ t crazy enough to start a crisis by firing Sessions and then special prosecutor Robert Mueller .

Meanwhile , the president continues to sow chaos with perpetual distractions. He fires off a tweet Wednesday morning announcing he is banning transgender people from serving in the military . The tweet apparently catches even the Pentagon by surprise and draws rebukes from pro - military Republicans who argue that all able -bodied, patriotic Americans should be allowed to serve .

And the ship of state sails on , rudderless . This is what it might look like if there were no president at all: stuff happens , but nothing gets done . Actually, the majority in Congress has great difficulty even doing nothing.
McConnell and his team scheduled a vote on repealing Obamacare for 11 :30 a . m . Wednesday — a proposal that was , by all accounts, destined for failure . But when the appointed hour came , Sen . Mike Enzi ( R- Wyo. ), sponsor of the repeal measure , requested a quorum call — a Senate procedure to stall for time .

Sen. Ron Wyden ( D- Ore . ) rose . “ Mr . President , I think there was some confusion —” he began .
But Enzi objected , Wyden was forbidden to speak , and the quorum call resumed — for 43 silent minutes.

Senators arrived for the scheduled pre- lunch vote. Sen . Bob Corker (R-Tenn. ) went to the clerk ’ s table to give a thumbs up and Sen. Heidi Heitkamp ( D- N . D. ) went to give a thumbs down , and both were told the same thing : “ We ’ re not voting. ” Senators milled about the chamber and huddled in clusters while aides and Senate leaders came and went to resolve the impasse, an arcane dispute about points of order and procedures for amendments .
Finally, Enzi spoke : The vote would be postponed for four more hours .

The Sisyphean act , all for a proposal that was going nowhere, encapsulated the whole Dada enterprise of health - care legislation . McConnell, thwarted in his quest to round up votes for the House- passed version of Trumpcare , or for his own Trumpcare alternative , or even for a repeal of Obamacare without a replacement, decided instead to risk everything on a “ motion to proceed ” — a parliamentary maneuver that allows debate to begin .

McConnell won that vote Tuesday by the thinnest possible margin , a 50 - 50 tie, broken by Vice President Pence . But then McConnell was the proverbial dog that caught the car . Hours later , he brought up his health - care legislation , and it went down, 43 to 57 , losing nine of his fellow Republicans and falling 17 votes short of what he needed .

On Wednesday came Enzi ’ s repeal proposal , which wouldn ’ t have taken effect for two years to buy lawmakers more time to draft an Obamacare replacement. After the four- hour delay , it went down , 45 to 55 , with seven Republicans defecting . Senators then voted down , on party lines , a Democratic proposal to send the whole thing back to committee .

Republicans , after complaining for years that they had been jammed by Democrats on the passage of Obamacare , brought their alternative forward in a secretive, rushed , Republican - only process without hearings . Far from giving lawmakers time to “ read the bill, ” GOP Senate leaders had them vote to begin debate without knowing which legislation they would be debating .

Soon comes a vote on “ skinny repeal , ” which , if it became law , would sabotage Obamacare by eliminating individual and employer requirements to provide health insurance . But it won ’ t become law ; it would merely become an excuse for more negotiations that would pit Senate GOP moderates against House GOP conservatives .

So it goes when a president doesn't act like one : all fury , no function

Trump is now the usa president: learn to accept it, even crooked hillary has accepted it.

So if your were trump, u won't sack comney?

He would be the first person to be sacked.

Did ur pmb not sack all service and intelligence chiefs? Let us not be hypocrites my dear.

Trump DID NOT BREACH THEIR CONSTITUTION period.


The US lawmakers have acceptes his sack and only cautioned trump not to appoint a partisian replacememt.

My friend leave that. Forge ahead. We have megaproblems over here.

Obama did all the rubbish he did and what did u say? Did u critisize him for once?

Hillary put the usa at a serious risk and what did ur. Obama do? Some innocent americans lost their lives in the libyan attack and said u? Obama persecuted christians, helped isis, plunged many countries into wars and what said u?

No one would fire Comey because Comey was investigating Trump, it is obruction of justice. That is impeachable.

Who polls help? obamacare is destined to be repealed. its only a matter of when. we shall remind you when it is repealed. you cant keep insurance companies into perpetual loss because you want to save the world. If not for Republicans promise to repeal the failed obamacare i would prefer obamacare to continue, by the time they cant afford it and all insurance companies DON run commot you will get insurance from heaven at cheap price. it is insane to peg insurance price on people with pre-existing conditions. For your information, I work as an insurance expert and you should know i have sound knowledge of issues around health insurance.
The only option for obamacare to survive is for the lawmakers resolve to accept to buy off insurance companies loss and you know republicans are very reluctant to public debt increasing, they are conservatives for a reason. obamacare is good but is it sustainable? will it result in government savings or deficits.
The Alternatives right now proposed by republicans will result in savings and not deficit for the government in nearest future. both sides need to sit down and design what will work create a balance.


Obamacare is not dying.

Comedians lighting into Trump!?

To those of us who never believed u can actually succeed inspite of unending controversies


The unhappy expression of Trump’s chief of staff , John Kelly(A former US army general, once led d war in Iraq n Afghanistan) :

Colbert : “ This guy is a four- star general . Iraq , no problem . Afghanistan , we can do it. Twenty -minute Trump press conference ? A quagmire from which our country will never emerge . ”

Meyers: “ Trump is so fully out of his mind, he broke a general . That guy ’ s been in wars !”

Is this when Trump actually goes down!


Two of his aides, one his former NSA, have pleaded guilty, after coming to an agreement with d special counsel.



Excerpts;

[b] After six months of work, special counsel Robert S . Mueller III has indicted two advisers to President Trump and accepted guilty pleas from two others in exchange for their cooperation with his probe into Russian meddling in the 2016 election — a sign of mounting legal peril for the White House.
With the guilty plea Friday by former national security adviser Michael Flynn — one of Trump’ s closest and most valued aides — the investigation has swept up an array of figures with intimate knowledge of the campaign , the transition and the White House.
It appears to have swiftly expanded beyond Russia ’ s interference in the campaign to encompass a range of activities, including contacts with Russian officials during the transition and alleged money laundering that took place long before Trump ran for office .
And Flynn ’ s agreement to fully cooperate with investigators suggests that Mueller is not done yet .
Both Flynn and George Papadopoulos, who served as a foreign policy adviser to Trump’ s campaign , acknowledged lying to the FBI about their contacts with the Russians. Now, both are cooperating with Mueller , according to prosecutors, potentially providing evidence against other Trump aides [/b]

This is the stream of ignorance that left Africans in serious darkness. Why do you not ask yourself and trolls of liberal wings how USA was built? USA was not built by playing father Christmas to every dumbass fool, engage in set asides or idiotic social handouts. The FBI director was not fired for investigation of any corruption. The so-called collision with Russia was born out Hillary Clinton and DNC dossier prepared by Russian spy on a political opponent. The real investigation will soon start that will gallop your so-called head of law enforcement institutions, Hillary Clinton, DNC and a former head of state. Please stop loading up liberal propaganda that tend to hide its ominous intentions behind carrot.

Guy you've been ranting about Trump's presidency for almost a six months now, expecting his downfall but the nigga is still balling, their economy is improving, and jobs are available... Not much can be said about your adored president back home where everything is just upside down.... I'll advise you to leave America and their president alone and channel your critics energy to where it's really needed which might probably benefit your immediate relations...

But Trump’ s personal lawyer John Dowd sought to excuse the president ’ s tweet in part by telling Axios and NBC News on Monday that the “president cannot obstruct justice because he is the chief law enforcement officer under [ the Constitution’ s Article II ] and has every right to express his view of any case . ”
Dowd declined to elaborate on his theory or explain the emerging legal strategy to The Washington Post .
Inside the White House, some senior officials were baffled that Dowd publicly offered this interpretation of the law , which has been advanced since the summer by constitutional scholar Alan Dershowitz in defense of Trump but flatly dismissed by many other legal scholars.
