In an earlier post, beobob opined that it was unfair to criticize the Flynn son;  Why??  He evidently was involved in the transition, was hoping to be on the NSC (yikes), and vigorously promoted faux news about the Clintons.

Not to mention hoping to suck at the government teat thanks to nepotism. Seems to be a coomon theme in Trumpland.

And has been whining about 3 million illeagal vottes AFTER he won?

What a lot of people believe is that was intentional propaganda to convince the country it actually exists even when it doesn't and was based on fake news. What some believe is it was a clue and they are anticipating massive federal voter suppression legislation in the future based on that false information; an excuse to enact it.

Maybe Trump got that bad information from Flynn Sr. or Jr.

"President-elect Donald Trump "lied his ass off" about the terms of the deal to keep Carrier manufacturing jobs in the United States, the Carrier union's president said Tuesday."

"Jones told the Post that he hoped Trump would explain at a Dec. 1 meeting that 550 of the Carrier jobs weren't saved."

"At a celebratory rally last week, Trump praised the deal, telling the press, "Now they’re keeping — actually the number’s over 1,100 people,” he said, “which is so great.”

Jones said the numbers of jobs saved reported by Trump and Pence were misleading and included positions that weren't slated to move to Mexico.

“Trump and Pence, they pulled a dog and pony show on the numbers,”

"The nation's hospital industry warned President-elect Trump and congressional leaders on Tuesday that repealing the Affordable Care Act could cost hospitals $165 billion by the middle of the next decade and trigger "an unprecedented public health crisis."

"The letter, along with a consultant's study estimating the financial impact of undoing the Affordable Care Act, makes hospitals the first sector of the health-care industry to speak out publicly to try to protect itself from a sharp reversal in health policy that Trump is promising and congressional Republicans have long favored."

"Spokesmen for the Trump transition team did not answer repeated requests for a reply, except for a note that said: "We have received your request. Due to the volume of requests coming in, response time may be slower than usual."

"House Speaker Paul Ryan on Sunday said that the incoming GOP Congress’ first order of business will be to repeal the Affordable Care Act (ACA), or Obamacare.

“Well, the first bill we’re going to be working on is our Obamacare legislation,” Ryan said in an interview on CBS’ 60 Minutes."

"President-elect Donald Trump pledged Tuesday both to scale back interventions in the Middle East and ratchet up the fight against the Islamic State in the Middle East."

"He has long said he has a secret plan to fight ISIS, but he has yet to provide any details of it or evidence that it exists.

However, any campaign against ISIS would require a military presence and financial investment in the Middle East, particularly if Trump would expand on the Obama administration’s targeted bombing-focused, almost-no-boots-on-the-ground approach."

"Trump seemed to suggest that he could both spend money on that fight in the Middle East — where, in addition, an ongoing American presence in Iraq has so far been an element of the fight against ISIS — but also spend less money."

"Trump also pledged in his first budget to eliminate the Defense Department sequester, the across-the-board cuts that were the result of a failed effort to force a compromise between House Republicans and the Obama White House over the past few years."

http://www.politico.com/story/2016/12/trump-middle-east-isis-232291

Double speak.


"The chairman of the House Armed Services Committee is proposing an increase in the defense budget by billions of dollars to halt a severe combat readiness problem that he and other Republicans accuse President Obama of ignoring.

Representative Mac Thornberry’s annual defense policy bill, to be released Monday afternoon, would shift $18 billion from the account that finances ongoing war operations to pay for additional ships, jet fighters, helicopters, and more that the Pentagon didn’t ask for in its $583 billion request."

https://www.bostonglobe.com/news/nation/2016/04/25/lawmaker-lays-out-risky-strategy-for-defense-budget-increases/Nr2MC2o98OSkyGa9vj4yHP/story.html

"The Pentagon has buried an internal study that exposed $125 billion in administrative waste in its business operations amid fears Congress would use the findings as an excuse to slash the defense budget, according to interviews and confidential memos obtained by The Washington Post.

Pentagon leaders had requested the study to help make their enormous back-office bureaucracy more efficient and reinvest any savings in combat power. But after the project documented far more wasteful spending than expected, senior defense officials moved swiftly to kill it by discrediting and suppressing the results."

"But some Pentagon leaders said they fretted that by spotlighting so much waste, the study would undermine their repeated public assertions that years of budget austerity had left the armed forces starved of funds. Instead of providing more money, they said, they worried Congress and the White House might decide to cut deeper."

Deputy Defense Secretary Robert "Work said the board fundamentally misunderstood how difficult it is to eliminate federal civil service jobs — members of Congress, he added, love having them in their districts — or to renegotiate defense contracts."

"Information on contractor labor, in particular, was so cloaked in mystery that McKinsey described it as “dark matter.”

"Arnold Punaro, a retired Marine general and former staff director for the Senate Armed Services Committee, said lawmakers block even modest attempts to downsize the Pentagon’s workforce because they do not want to lose jobs in their districts.

Without backing from Congress, “you can’t even get rid of the guy serving butter in the chow hall in a local district, much less tens of thousands of jobs,” he said."

"But the McKinsey consultants had also collected data that exposed how the military services themselves were spending princely sums to hire hordes of defense contractors.

For example, the Army employed 199,661 full-time contractors, according to a confidential McKinsey report obtained by The Post. That alone exceeded the combined civil workforce for the Departments of State, Agriculture, Commerce, Education, Energy, and Housing and Urban Development."

"Why Republican health reform ideas are likely to fail; I tried many of those ideas as Rhode Island's health commissioner. Here's what I learned."

"Republican leaders have suggested a few ideas, including creating high-risk pools for people with pre-existing conditions, allowing interstate health plan competition, expanding the availability of health savings accounts and providing tax subsidies for individuals with low incomes. President-elect Donald Trump also has said he wants to keep Obamacare’s requirement that insurers cover those with pre-existing medical conditions. Most important is what Republicans say won’t be in their plan: a mandate for Americans to purchase health insurance.

This set of policies is highly unlikely to result in stable, affordable, high-quality coverage choices. I should know: As Rhode Island’s health insurance commissioner from 2005 to 2013, I was responsible for trying to implement a system that made many similar promises. What we found, in the end, was that without a requirement to buy, many healthy people opt out of insurance, resulting in an unstable market that requires heavy regulation with limited choices. Republicans are likely to face the same challenges with their favored reforms in the years ahead."
