      Hmmmmmm . . . . . seems Jason Chaffetz needs to be away from his Oversight Committee Chair position - Foot surgery of some sort. That means three to four weeks or more of no investigating into Russian "connections" with him at the helm. This must be quite the emergency - two leaps before he "retires".

      I always thought the Modus Operandi for Republicans to rid themselves of "potential threats to their power or possible convictions" was small plane crashes.

      I guess they are following their leader's favorite excuse now. Afterall, wasn't it bone spurs in his foot that kept him out of Vietnam ?

      BTW - don't be fooled by the x-ray of poor poor Jason's foot. Said x-ray could be accessed at any orthopedic surgeon's office. Heck - this could be Michael Jordan's foot for all we know !!

          "An acute shortage of gasoline in the North Korean capital of Pyongyang has gone on for a week with no explanation. That’s raising fears of potentially crippling pain at the pumps if things don’t improve soon, and driving rumors that China is to blame.

          "The shortage began last week when signs went up at Pyongyang gas stations informing customers that sales restrictions would be in place until further notice. Prices have shot up. At least one station was charging more than $5 a gallon, about double the typical price of a week ago.

          "China supplies most of energy-poor North Korea’s fuel, and in lieu of official explanations, rumors are rife that Beijing is behind the shortage. There are indications Beijing has been quietly tightening enforcement of some international sanctions."

              "On Wednesday, April 26, the Cassini spacecraft did something extraordinary: It slipped through the gap between Saturn and its rings, becoming the first spacecraft ever to explore this region.

              "The trip took it closer to the top of Saturn’s atmosphere than any spacecraft had been before. And, yes, there are pictures.

              "On Thursday, NASA released these unprocessed images from Cassini. (Unprocessed means dust and other photographic artifacts are still in the shot.) What they represent is extraordinary: photographs taken just 1,900 miles above Saturn’s atmosphere, while traveling at a speed of 77,000 mph relative to Saturn."

                  Why President Trump Is Getting Killed In Court, In 1 Astonishingly Ignorant Comment

                      "[T]he language on the ban, it reads so easy that a reasonably good student in the first grade will fully understand."

                      "[F]irst the 9th Circuit rules against the ban and now it hits again on sanctuary cities — both ridiculous rulings. See you in the Supreme Court!"

                      45--evil, wicked, mean, bad, and just plain nasty!!!

                      ____________________________________________________________________

                      "While the Republican Congress has been laughably deficient in checking President Trump's corruption and power grabs, the federal courts have been doing their job. On Tuesday, a federal district court judge blocked an executive order intending to deny federal funding to sanctuary cities. The president of the United States wasted little time in reacting, tweeting "[f]irst the 9th Circuit rules against the ban and now it hits again on sanctuary cities — both ridiculous rulings. See you in the Supreme Court!" and criticizing the winners of the suit for "judge shopping." In a subsequent interview, he expressed agreement with "the many people that want to break up the 9th Circuit."

                      "Both the order itself and Trump's reaction to the court's ruling indicated why he's had a rough ride in the courts so far: He has no idea what he's doing.

                      "The most obvious problem is that while U.S. District Judge William Orrick lives in the geographic area covered by the 9th Circuit — he is based in San Francisco — he does not in fact serve on that court. He's a trial judge, not an appellate one. The fact that the same president issuing executive orders apparently doesn't understand basic facts about the structure of the American judicial system is rather sobering.

                      "Trump's threat to "break up" the 9th Circuit because "everybody immediately runs" to it doesn't make much more sense. It is true that the Constitution gives Congress the power to reorganize the federal judicial system, and some conservative legislators have floated proposals to create a new court that would cover some jurisdictions currently covered by the large and rapidly growing 9th Circuit. (Since this would mean a lot of new Republican judges — which is the real point — this would have no chance of passing the Senate as long as the filibuster remains in place.) But needless to say, even if the 9th Circuit was broken up this wouldn't stop forum (or what Trump calls "judge") shopping because suits could still be filed in the jurisdictions the 9th Circuit does cover."

                          What's more important? Rebuilding our military - or bailing out insurance companies? Ask the Democrats.

                          ______________________________________________________________________

                          "When you gotta tweet, you gotta tweet, apparently.

                          "President Donald Trump uncorked a tweet storm on Thursday morning, lashing out at Democrats over a slew of different issues.

                          "Trump's Twitter (NYSE: TWTR) tirade — six messages over the course of just two minutes — came a day before an expected congressional vote on appropriations that would seek to avoid a shutdown of the federal government.

                          "The president's tweets seemed to refer to threats by Democrats in Congress not to support that appropriations package if it does not include spending for Obamacare subsidies that lower the cost of out-of-pocket health expenses for low-income Americans.

                          "If the government does not appropriate that money, which goes directly to insurers, those insurers that sell Obamacare plans will still be on the hook for the subsidies to customers, but will have to eat the cost of doing so.

                          "But the tweeter-in-chief also teed off on Democrats on military spending, border security and national parks."
