Dr.Bandy Lee, a Yale School of Medicine psychiatrist who edited a book titled “The Dangerous Case of Donald Trump: Psychiatrists and Mental Health Experts Assess a President” will attend the town-hall style meeting on Capitol Hill, to which all lawmakers will be invited

These people are not only insane but reckless. Between the BIG I word and this clown town hall I am not sure exactly know what to think. Fraud Steele dossier, the Mueller madness, AOC, infanticide, the crazy Green Deal, confiscate your guns, curtail your ability to move, SOCIALISM, their hatred of middle America and America in general. And they have the never to tell us we are the loons. Better pay attention America.

And who will do the questioning: Nancy Pelosi, the wrinkled old hag who's so out of it she can't remember the names of those standing next to her; Tubby Nadler who is so stupid he can't complete simple sentences; Sheila Jackson Lee who not only is a laughingstock she is so ugly and dumb she isn't worth words...she famously said, 'homicide is the leading cause of murder' and has made any number of other observations too incredible to list. If the entire RAT party and the media gets involved in this madness together, they collectively won'e make one moron.

They think it's crazy to disagree with them. THEY are the ones running around rioting and wearing silly pink hats. THEY are the ones encouraging psychologists to act in a scandalous and unprofessional manner by diagnosing people not their patient. We know their ideas and their actions are crazy.

Maybe someone can ask Dr. Lee about the prevalence of TDS (Trump Derangement Syndrome) among Democrats and people of the liberal persuasion. Is TDS making people unfit to govern?

Well, talk about bad timing. They wait until The President of the United States goes to Europe, gives multiple speeches, is wined and dined by the Queen of England, represented our Country on June 6th (where he gave another stem-winder of a speech) and has been praised even by the likes of Mika and Joe and the Talking Heads of CNN. Now they TRY to convince people that The President has failing Mental Health! It's SOOO funny! They make themselves look like a Laughing Stock. Who in the world came up with this Hair-Brained idea? I think maybe the Democrats should hold an Intervention for those in their party who have gone off the Deep End. We, who live in the Real World are really, really tired of your Wiley Coyote tricks. Wake up! You can NOT win against the Road Runner named Trump!

I can understand partisan bickering from one side of the aisle to the other. That is to be expected. But this latest attack on the President is not only outrageous but a disgrace to our country, The Presidency and everything that is considered American. We are the envy of the world. Is this the way we show the rest of the world that a group of elected politicians can undermine a sitting president because they can't get over his winning an election over someone who should be behind bars? The dems should be ashamed of themselves. I am ashamed of them. I am ashamed of the RINOS that don't support President Trump. I am proud of President Trump. I am proud of our country and the wise decisions the President has made for all of us. I am proud of the personal and monetary sacrifices he has made for us. I am proud that he loves our country. I am proud that he loves our flag. And for this the dems need a psychiatrist who edited a book concerning mental health of a president?

Kind of frightening that people called phychiatrists, or psychologists (I don’t know if this Ms. Lee is either) are the ones “diagnosing” mental illness. A majority of physicians, as well as the average citizen, feel that both the professions are pseudo-science. A certain part of the suggestible and gullible population believe their gibberish.

On the bright side, what this also tells us is that the Dim/Enemedia Crime Syndicate has no Plan B (Plan A being the failed coup attempt via framing the president with Spygate) other than assassination. This is even more desperately deranged of them than trying to demolish Kavanaugh for drinking beer in college. At least we know the Party of Crime is totally out of ammunition.

This so-called "doctor" Bandy Lee needs to be stripped of her license to practice medicine and anyone else who dares to render an opinion without examining the "patient". Sorry, but there are just too many people interacting with our great POTUS from the Secret Service (on a daily basis) to staff, Congress people, people at rallies, the military, the Queen of England, etc. who could pick up any sign of craziness --- but haven't. Trump's biggest problem is he beats them at their own game. And, as typical sore losers, it's not THEIR fault they lost it must be something evil, rigged, tricked, fake, crazy, etc.

Diagnosing a person whom you have not personally examined is a serious ethical violation. Any psychiatrist who participates in this farce should immediately have their license yanked. And this is what, at least the fourth time the Rats have have tried this tactic? The previous attempts all flamed out, this will end the same. The definition of a fool is one who repeats the same mistake expecting a different result. The Rats are fools.

Billionaire Jeffrey Epstein has been arrested for allegedly sex trafficking minors in Florida and New York from 2002 to 2005. The 66-year-old registered sex offender faces federal sex trafficking charges and is due to appear in court in New York on Monday. He was taken into custody by the FBI on Saturday after landing in New York following an overseas flight. Epstein's arrest comes after a New York federal appeals court ordered last week the release of 2,000 pages of judicial documents related to Epstein and his partner Ghislaine Maxwell, who are suspected of taking part in an international sex trafficking operation.

President Trump never revoked former CIA Director John Brennan's security clearance. The president announced in August that Brennan's security clearance was being stripped due to "erratic behavior" that disqualified him from having access to sensitive information. But the White House never followed through with the complicated bureaucratic process of revocation, a source told the New York Times. A CIA spokesperson declined to comment, telling the Washington Examiner the agency does not discuss individual security clearances. The White House did not immediately return a request for comment. The revelation comes after Trump gave Attorney General William Barr "full and complete authority to

For more than a decade, the United States had a problem: three Rwandan men, sitting in jail in Virginia, who had stood accused of brutally murdering tourists in Africa—but now had a chance of winning release onto American streets. The three had been rounded up after a bloody 1999 attack that made headlines across three continents, in which two Americans and six other Western tourists on a gorilla-watching visit to the Ugandan rainforest were killed with machetes and axes. The crime was so horrific that U.S. prosecutors charged the men under terrorism statutes, extracted them from Rwanda and then took

Toilet paper – the one product that the majority of us use just once and flush away – is becoming less sustainable, according to research. Analysis from Ethical Consumer magazine found that major brands were using less recycled paper than in 2011, while only five of the nine major supermarkets (the Co-op, Morrisons, Sainsbury’s, Tesco and Waitrose) offered an own-brand recycled toilet paper. The large-scale use of virgin paper contributes to unnecessary deforestation.

Joe Biden let slip that his campaign was collecting dirt on his rivals for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination.“I mean, I get all this information about other people’s pasts, and what they’ve done and not done. And you know, I’m just not going to go there. If we keep doing that — I mean, we should be debating what we do from here," Biden told CNN in a Friday interview, referring to the crowded field of two dozen White House hopefuls.In May, Biden, 76, promised not to attack his rivals, saying: “I will not speak ill of any of the Democratic candidates, I will not do it."

Britain's Ambassador to Washington has described Donald Trump as 'inept', 'insecure' and 'incompetent' in a series of explosive memos to Downing Street. Sir Kim Darroch, one of Britain's top diplomats, used secret cables and briefing notes to impugn Trump's character, warning London that the White House was 'uniquely dysfunctional' and that the President's career could end in 'disgrace'. His bombshell comments risk angering the notoriously thin-skinned President and undermining the UK's 'special relationship' with America.

Several police officers were asked to leave a Starbucks in Tempe, Arizona, by a barista who told them another patron did not feel safe in their presence. The incident took place on July 4, Independence Day, just before the six Tempe officers began a long shift. The barista told the officers they either needed to move out of the complaining customer's field of vision or leave completely because this patron did not "feel comfortable," according to ABC15 Arizona. The officers, who had just purchased their coffees, opted to leave. The following morning, the officer's union Tempe Officers Association tweeted a

A 7.1 quake rocked Southern California Friday evening. The quake struck at 8:21 p.m. KCAL9 anchor Sara Donchey held co-anchor Juan Fernandez’ arm as she steadied herself before ducking under her desk. He, meanwhile, reported feeling nauseous about the quake that felt like it wasn’t going to stop. Friday’s 7.1 and Thursday’s 6.4 both had epicenters near the community of Ridgecrest. The Thursday quake was already the biggest to hit Southern California in 20 years. The quake Friday evening obliterated that mark.

In the viral moment of the first Democratic presidential debates, Sen. Kamala Harris attacked former vice president Joe Biden over his opposition to forced busing to integrate public schools. The Harris campaign is now waffling on the issue. Over time, we may look back on that as a moment revealing Harris’s underlying weakness as a candidate. Immediately after the debate, while clips rolled of Harris touting how she personally benefited from busing, Harris surged in the polls and Biden sagged a bit.
