The Republican civil war is the best thing happening Donald Trump may feel that his legislation-free first 100 days were beautiful, wonderful, and the best ever, but he's the only one. What the rest of the Republican Party is seeing is falling support, ineffective leadership, and internal strife.

FOIA Accessed Inauguration Photos Confirm: Donald Trump is a pathetic loser In an alternate reality where Donald Trump was not a giant narcissistic baby, his puny inauguration crowd size would have faded from the news after a day or two of jokes. Instead, Trump's extended temper tantrum has made the story the gift that keeps on giving.

Trump reportedly screamed at CIA Director Pompeo over Intel being withheld If the PDB was being boiled down by Flynn -- before he was asked to resign as National Security Adviser for lying to the Vice President -- to a single page with no more than 9 bullet points, the President really isn't getting all the information anyway and the CIA Directory denying the "withhold" is practically meaningless when it's the NSA holding sensitive information back, not necessarily CIA.

Trump administration unveils "Trumpcare" -- higher costs for less coverage for middle-income Americans These new regulations would allow insurance companies to sell plans with higher deductibles and narrower networks and reduce the subsidies that low- and middle-income families get to purchase insurance. Yes, higher out-of-pocket costs and less help buying insurance. For the people that have the hardest time affording insurance and medical care.

Noam Chomsky to President Obama: This could help 11 million immigrants Not only has Donald Trump threatened and hate-mongered immigrants in this country throughout his campaign, the Republican Party has done so with the same vigor for years--just not with the same dangerously ignorant verbiage Trump uses.

Conway: Trump gets his information from "world leaders," is "magnanimous" for not jailing Clinton Donald Trump appears to still have no concept of what the office he will soon be appointed to actually does. He doesn't need intelligence briefings; he gets what he needs to know from "world leaders" who tell him things on the phone.

Four months of solid work from David Fahrenthold confirms: Donald Trump is a lying sack of Scrooge Fahrenthold's tireless work in tracking down the truth about Trump has been called out as an exemplar of what the press should be. It didn't take magic, or an army of analysts. It took a single man, a notepad, and an interest in the truth. Trump's record of personal giving is shameful. His public pretense of being "generous" is disgusting. The silence of most of the press is unforgivable.

Why FBI Director James Comey did the wrong thing ... again From his ludicrous, finger-wagging press gaggle in announcing Clinton's innocence, to his ham-fisted intrusion into the final act of the election, Comey has felt compelled to insert Jim Comey, straight-shooter, into every moment. As a result he's caused serious harm to the FBI, to the election, and to the nation. And, just incidentally, he's ruined his reputation in the process.

Abbreviated pundit roundup: A campaign of conspiracies A concern is what happens on Nov. 8, when squads of Trump volunteers fan out to defend their candidate's presumed victory.

The Trump surrogates are toast. Now that the blinders are off of the media's eyes, the gloves are coming off too. And not just on Trump, they're turning on Trump surrogates like a pack of Junk Yard Dogs. This would be bad enough for a well prepared surrogate, but considering the fact that the campaign(?) is giving them no direction or instructions, it's getting ugly, or smashing, depending on your point of view.

Retired Army Lt. General to Trump: "Military is not his palace guards" There's the sneaking suspicion that Donald Trump sees being president as being the King of America. Humanity has fought wars for thousands of years to rid themselves of this despotism, and while we have all variety of battles raging for the civil rights and liberties of our citizens, losing the Head of our Executive Branch to dictatorship is exactly what the military in a democracy does not want.

The New York Times Calls Out Trump For What He Is, And Who He Represents Trump's candidacy is simply tapping into the same age-old resentments that have riven this country for over 150 years, now newly clothed in the guise of a reality-TV creation, viewer-friendly to the masses. And while Trump himself may be a shallow, opportunistic clown, the emotions he deliberately stokes -- envy, resentment and hate, are among the ugliest and most toxic that Americans have ever demonstrated.

Their influence on the Republican Party is so smothering that many observers have recognized it to have supplanted the normal party apparatus itself, in effect, operating through its vast network of organizations as the de facto Party itself.

What has Bernie ever accomplished? when people compare the records of Sanders and Clinton in the Senate, they often stop at the most superficial level, looking only at bills bearing their names as sponsors. Digging just a little deeper, it is obvious that Sanders has been a committed, effective, and successful progressive legislator for decades. At least in Congress, Bernie has far outpaced Hillary when it comes to getting things done.

Ammon Bundy heads to court today and his own father may have sunk any chance of pretrial release Cliven Bundy is ordering the FBI to leave Burns, Oregon immediately ... or else. He also says the standoff will continue and they will not give up the refuge. Given the previous federal judge said there was no chance of release while the standoff is still going on and Ammon Bundy and his wife Lisa reached out to the remaining militants at the refuge, pleading for them to leave, this isn't likely to help Ammon's case.

The FBI asked the media to leave the area.

They have repeatedly made definitive statements that they are prepared to die at the refuge.
