Uproar as Capitol Hill pharmacist dishes
on prescriptions for the powerful

Fox News, by Brooke Singman

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 10/12/2017 5:25:06 PM

The owner of the Capitol Hill pharmacy that supplies prescription drugs for members of Congress and staff has sparked a frenzy of speculation after claiming he gives meds to lawmakers with “pretty serious health problems” and appearing to question their mental faculties. “At first it’s cool, and then you realize, I’m filling some drugs that are for some pretty serious health problems as well. And these are the people that are running the country,” Grubb´s Pharmacy´s Dr. Michael Kim told STAT News, reportedly citing treatments for conditions like diabetes and Alzheimer’s. “It makes you kind of sit back and say,

The owner does an awful lot of talking about his customers regardless of privacy laws that say he should not be.

He was made to understand (read "an offer he couldn´t refuse") that he had stepped in "IT" big time. Now he´s gotta cover himself. Watch for traffic accidents....

If true, perhaps he feels that he is doing his patriotic duty #1. Most company boards would force a CEO to retire if they had dementia. Why is it that the board members of this nation, these congressional members’ constituents, are not being given the same power to protect their investment? We live in strange times.

So first, drug tests for Congress (illegal street drugs).

Next, since they are so gung ho to try the 25th amendment to get Trump, we put staffers under oath about who might be having issues.

Next, we go ahead and get term limits.

I guess NeverTrump posters will never get over their hatred for our President... Yes, it might just be someone’s patriotic duty to expose a group’s dementia issues. Not by name, mind you, just the group. Especially when members of that group have their collective boots on our collective necks!

Nevertheless, I would imagine this contract will end shortly.

US cities are offering Amazon at least as much as $7billion in tax breaks ahead of a Thursday deadline as they compete to house its second headquarters. The world´s largest online retailer has won promises from elected officials who are eager for the $5billion-plus investment and up to 50,000 jobs that will come with Amazon HQ2. New Jersey proposed $7billion in potential credits against state and city taxes if Amazon locates in Newark and sticks to hiring commitments, according to a Monday news release from the governor´s office. Across the Hudson River, New York City made a proposal without incentives

Chuck Schumer Wrote Off $58,000 Last
Year Using Tax Deduction He’s Trying To Save
Daily Caller, by Peter Hasson    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 10/19/2017 1:02:35     Post Reply
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer is likely to personally save tens of thousands of dollars if he is able to defeat Republican efforts to eliminate state and local tax deductions. Schumer wrote off $58,000 in state and local taxes last year, according to his publicly available federal tax returns. The amount Schumer wrote off is roughly equivalent to the median household income of $59,039 in 2016. A report from the Tax Policy Center found that eliminating the deduction would save the federal government $1.3 trillion over 10 years, and would hit wealthy taxpayers the hardest. “Taxpayers with incomes over $100,000

Rep. Adam Schiff (D., Calif.) has done more than 150 television interviews on at least 100 different days since President Donald Trump took office, according to a Washington Free Beacon news analysis. As ranking member of the House Intelligence Committee, Schiff has been frequently brought on to discuss the latest in the Russia investigation and allegations of collusion between the Trump campaign and the Kremlin. Schiff often "can´t comment" on sensitive matters surrounding the probe, however. His most frequent interviewers have been MSNBC´s Rachel Maddow, Andrea Mitchell and Chris Hayes; and CNN´s Wolf Blitzer and Jake Tapper. He´s also appeared

As Congress debates reforming the federal tax code for the first time in more than 30 years, the states continue to confirm what too many in Washington are denying: Taxes matter for economic growth. A new report released this week by the Tax Foundation – along with assessment of states´ fiscal health, economic performance, and population changes – confirm that states with lower taxes and reasonable levels of government spending have stronger economies and are more attractive for businesses and individuals. The State Business Tax Climate Index is an annual ranking of state tax systems and how well they are

On Thursday’s Morning Joe, after days of ignoring The Hill’s latest reporting confirming an extensive racketeering scheme organized by Russian government officials that appeared to directly benefit Bill and Hillary Clinton, the show finally decided to cover the story. However, instead of getting worked up about unethical or possibly illegal Clinton-Russian collusion, hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski, along with Democratic Senators Tim Kaine and Michael Bennet, attacked Trump for tweeting about the new revelations and accused him of undermining American democratic institutions. (Video) After bringing on the Democrats to discuss their latest single-payer health care effort in Congress, Brzezinski

Conspiracy Theory: Melania

The internet is convinced First Lady Melania Trump has a body double, which is simultaneously the best and dumbest conspiracy theory to hit the net since InfoWars´ Alex Jones told us the government was turning the frogs gay (they are!). On Wednesday, Mrs. Trump — or perhaps someone else — was standing alongside the president at a press conference regarding hurricane relief efforts, wearing suspicious dark shades. "My wife, Melania, who happens to be right here," mentioned President Trump, adding fuel to the conspiracy fire.

It is now clear to anyone who filters through all the media chaff on condolence calls that the FBI and Department of Justice allowed a criminal conspiracy to proceed, endangering national security, but enriching the Clintons, and have been covering up the evidence. The two people responsible for targeting the Special Counsel on Trump and Russia are directly responsible for the cover-up. Yesterday’s Senate Judiciary Committee hearing produced plenty of video clips of Al Franken badgering Jeff Sessions, making him look off-balance. That might comfort the sensibilities of Trump haters, but it is all a phony distraction. It is now

Report: DACA Illegal Aliens Working in

Illegal aliens who have received temporary amnesty from the Obama administration are reportedly working as interns and aides in local California government on immigration issues. Under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, nearly 800,000 illegal aliens have been allowed to remain in the U.S. and work legally. Last month, Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced on behalf of President Donald Trump that DACA would officially be ended in March 2018. A new report by the San Jose Mercury News reveals the extent to which DACA beneficiaries have been given opportunities ahead of Americans, with many working as aides and

Political content on the internet, paid or not, should face substantial federal regulation to eliminate undefined "disinformation," and users of platforms and news feeds, from Facebook, to Twitter, to the Drudge Report and even New York Times, could be punished for sharing "fake news" from those sites, the former Democratic chair of the FEC is urging. In a broad proposal that adds threatening libel suits to regulatory plans already pushed by Democrats on the Federal Election Commission, ex-chair Ann Ravel believes that there is support for expanded regulation in the wake of reports foreign governments spent $100,000 on 2016 political

For almost thirty years I called on military installations all over the United States as a health care marketer. Something I learned in that time is that each of the services has its own culture, with the Army being the most relaxed and receptive to new ideas, the Navy being somewhere in the middle, and the United States Air Force acting as if it had a permanent stick up its derrière. These last were sticklers for operating strictly by the rules and regs and resistant to change, even though such change might benefit their troops. I remember asking an older

WASHINGTON — A shakeup is underway at the Democratic National Committee as several key longtime officials have lost their posts, exposing a still-raw rift in the party and igniting anger among those in its progressive wing who see retaliation for their opposition to DNC Chairman Tom Perez. The ousters come ahead of the DNC´s first meeting, in Las Vegas, Nevada, since Perez took over as chairman with a pledge earlier this year that he would unite the party that had become badly divided during the brutal Bernie Sanders-Hillary Clinton 2016 primary. Complaints began immediately after party officials saw a list

Hillary Clinton on Wednesday chastised U.S. policy against North Korea, calling the rising threats of war “cavalier.” “There is no need for us to be bellicose and aggressive,” Mrs. Clinton said at a forum in South Korea, Reuters reported. Although she declined to directly name President Trump, she did say that threats on Twitter were more beneficial to Kim Jong-un than to the U.S. “Picking fights with Kim Jong-un puts a smile on his face,” she said. Mr. Trump has taken to the social media platform to call out the North Korean leader, referring to him as “little rocket man.”

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell says players should stand for the national anthem, speaking out amid the furor over some players´ protests before games. "We believe everyone should stand for the national anthem. That´s an important part of our policy," Goodell said in a press conference Wednesday in New York. But Goodell said he would not commit to making a rule stating players must stand for the anthem.

As National Football League owners and players’ union representatives meet in New York today and tomorrow to discuss the players’ recent demonstrations — the kneeling, linking arms or raising fists during the national anthem — they should know how the law views these protests. This will not only tell them what the league lawfully can do; it also will reveal something about American values. There has been some confusion about the law and the anthem protests. Because the First Amendment generally treats government and corporate power differently, allowing a business to impose on its workers what the government

Clinton Scandals: For well over a year now, the progressive left in the Democratic Party have tried hard to sell the idea that, a) Russia meddled in our election, and, b) that it was to the detriment of Hillary Clinton. After nearly a year and a half of investigating, neither appears true. What is true, and now documented, is that Hillary Clinton and her family foundation both benefited handsomely from Russian corruption. Citing federal officials and government documents, The Hill details the Russians´ nuclear-industry corruption here in the U.S., citing extensive evidence that "Russian nuclear industry officials were engaged in bribery,

Someone within the Obama administration’s intelligence apparatus made requests to unmask the identity of Americans named in intelligence reports on behalf of Samantha Power, the former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations. That’s what Power told the House Intelligence Committee last week during a closed-door interview. South Carolina Rep. Trey Gowdy revealed in an interview on Fox News on Tuesday that Power was “emphatic” on the point that someone else in the Obama administration made the unmasking requests that have been attributed to her. Fox News recently reported that Power made approximately 260 unmasking requests — a rate of one per business day

McCain if his relationship with the president is “so frayed” that McCain would “not support anything that he comes to you and asks for?” McCain snapped, “Why would you say something that stupid? Why would you ask something that dumb?” “My job as a United States senator — you mean I am somehow going to behave in a way that I’m going to block everything because of some personal disagreement?” McCain said incredulously.

The much-publicized Tuesday meeting between NFL officials, team owners, NFLPA officials and several players lasted about three hours. While there was undoubtedly a lot discussed in that time, it sounds as though there has not been a resolution on a rule change to require that players stand for the national anthem before games. A statement released jointly by the NFL and NFLPA called it a “productive meeting,” and that there will be another session in the future: Today owners and players had a productive meeting focused on how we can work together to promote positive social change and address inequality

LeBron James has been more vocal about topics beyond basketball this offseason—most notably his criticisms of President Donald Trump—and it seems that’s by design. GQ magazine dropped a story about James on Tuesday, the opening day of the NBA’s regular season, that follows the Cleveland Cavalier superstar throughout a series of offseason meetings and events. The article sketches the 32-year-old as he looks toward his post-NBA life and relinquishes the identity of perhaps the best athlete in the world. James’ willingness to take on Trump, whom the star famously called a “bum” on Twitter, hints he’s after something bigger than just basketball.

A Massachusetts elementary school has canceled its Halloween events and is celebrating ´black and orange spirit day´ instead. Boyden Elementary School´s principal sent a letter to parents this week saying that it had decided to cancel its traditional Halloween parade on October 31 because it was ´not inclusive of all students´ and was ´difficult´ for many. Without specifying which students the parade excluded, Principal Brendan Dearborn said the school would instead hold a ´black and orange spirit day´.  Children are allowed to dress in those colors but cannot come to school in costume.
