The man won the election but MSM ignores that. MSM plans to undermine the man at every opportunity. This looks like four, maybe 8 years of this years of this. Get over it you liberal wakes. Donald Trump is the MFWIC.

Since winning the election, Donald Trump hasn’t extended many olive branches to those who didn’t vote for him. More often than not, he’s set those branches on fire. That combative approach along with his response to Russia has made him the only president-elect among the last seven to see his popularity drop during his transition to the White House, according to three new polls (which Trump says are “rigged”). Only 4 in 10 Americans approve of Trump, mostly along partisan lines. One bright spot for Trump: About 6 in 10 Americans have confidence in his ability to deal with the economy and jobs.
– Trump is rattling the United States’ European allies with his comments about NATO, the EU and more.
– Trump’s health secretary pick fought to limit coverage in one of America’s neediest states.
– Michael Hiltzik breaks down what we know about Trump’s and Sen. Rand Paul’s Obamacare replacement plans.
– Many members of California’s delegation won’t attend the inauguration, but columnist Steve Lopez is heading out to “bear witness on behalf of my native state and as a member of the scabrous fraternity of ink-stained wretches.”

The choice Trump makes for the vacancy at the Supreme Court will show who the president elect really is. One would hope it is not Judge Blankfein or his double.
Andrew Napolitano Meets Donald Trump for Second Time On Supreme Court Nomination
January 17, 2017
President-elect Donald Trump met Tuesday, for the second time since the November presidential election, with Fox News Senior Judicial Analyst and Ron Paul Institute Advisory Board Member Andrew Napolitano. As with their previous hour-long meeting in December, Napolitano says in an interview with host Stuart Varney at Fox Business that a focus of the new meeting was Trump choosing a nominee to fill the vacant Supreme Court position.
In particular, Napolitano says in the interview that Trump and Napolitano discussed, in relation to filling the vacancy, “judicial attitudes, judicial temperament, ideology, and candidates for the court.”

It’s OK, just like the crazy aunt in the basement…everyone already knows.
Is The U.S. Government Insolvent? Sorry, But Its Accountant Can’t Tell You
January 12, 2017
Fiscal Policy: Question: What do you call it when a major organization’s financial statements are so deceptive and badly kept that even its auditor refuses to render an opinion? Answer: The federal government.
That’s right, the U.S. Government Accountability Office (GAO), the federal government’s accountant, refused to hand down an opinion of the federal government’s financial statements for 2016 “due to deficiencies that have plagued prior financial statements — persistent financial management problems at the Department of Defense (DOD), the government’s inability to account for and reconcile certain transactions, an ineffective process for preparing the consolidated financial statements, and significant uncertainties.”
No question that, just like Enron, if this happened in the private sector, the executives in charge would either be fired or tried for fraud, and the shareholders would suffer major losses. But U.S. taxpayers pay little attention to the problem since they don’t know how bad it really is. And the sad thing is, no one does.
