Original Article

Democrats want to bring a panel of psychiatrists to Washington to suggest that President Donald Trump is mentally unfit to be president. Kentucky Democratic Rep. John Yarmuth has been tasked with coordinating the project, now planned for July, the Washington Examiner reported Wednesday. “We’re planning to put together an event … a town hall. We haven’t actually determined the format,” Yarmuth said.Dr. Bandy Lee, a persistent critic of the president who believes Trump’s state of mental health makes him unfit for office, is slated to lead the team of psychiatrists. Lee teaches at the Yale School of Medicine and is the editor of the book,

The Nation's premier research institute-NIMH is in the area. But, these insane democrats , with a 71 year old having a law degree, is tasked to find the craziest psychiatrists and hold a townhall, without none of them actually examining the "so called patient". Are they using my Tax dollars to fly these people? I say NO

The Democrats are the lunatics., that need to be analyzed and locked up in rubber rooms. And any 'shrink' that makes a diagnosis without long and honest interviews with the subject should lose their licenses at the very minimum. Or is it going to be like 0bama at the 0bamacare introduction: Maybe a couple of real leftist-activist doctors, but mostly actors dressed up like doctors.

I think that is a great idea with a few conditions: (1) once the panel reaches their pre-ordained conclusion, they must present their case to a military tribunal made up of WWII veterans; (2) if they fail to make their case, face immediate execution by firing squad; and (3) their democrat sponsors get hung upside down from lampposts and beaten like pinatas by volunteers from the ranks of the voters they are trying to disenfranchise. It's perfectly constitutional if everyone agrees.

Saw an interesting article about FDR's possibly having died from melanoma. Remember seeing photos in which he had a dark mole above his left eyebrow? There seems to be general agreement that cerebral hemorrhage was the proximate cause of death. But for a year prior, FDR had suffered several symptoms (seizures, visual disturbances, speech problems, profound weight loss, fatigue) that pointed more toward a diagnosis of cancer, than to a "sudden" stroke. Roosevelt's shockingly poor condition was known by the press and by Washington insiders, but the press at the time continued concealing his health problems from the public. Was FDR's mental confusion the reason he gave away Eastern Europe at Yalta? The media and historians have covered this up.

First, we should verify that any alleged Psychiatrists they impanel actually are Psychiatrists, and don't just play them on TV, and that they actually have licenses to practice. Those that have licenses should have them revoked for participating in such a maniacal farce and trying to pass it off as science.

FTA -- "Despite Lee’s insistence that the president may be crazy, she has never spoken to Trump, let alone provided any psychiatric evaluation." Is this the same psychiatrist who, supposedly, wrote her doctoral thesis examining the reason crocheted bathtubs do not old water, especially when they are on the second floor, along with other assertions that "do not hold water"? Has the point been reached where a sizeable team of reliable psychiatrists should be permanent members of the DNC?

The White House is getting a new 13-foot fence, almost double its current height, to help keep intruders out.The Secret Service says the $64 million construction project will soon begin on what eventually will be a 13-foot, 1-inch (3.96-meter) fence, including wider and stronger pickets. The existing fence stands about 6-feet, 6 inches (1.83-meters) tall. The Secret Service, which provides security protection for the president and the White House, declined to provide details of the state-of-the-art security features it says will be part of the new barrier. Officials concluded that a taller fence was needed after a series of breaches of White House security, including in September 2014,

The stunning increase in homelessness announced in Los Angeles this week — up 16% over last year citywide — was an almost incomprehensible conundrum given the nation's booming economy and the hundreds of millions of dollars that city, county and state officials have directed toward the problem. But the homelessness crisis gripping Los Angeles is one that has been many years in the making with no easy fix.
