Kushner, according to CNN, REsubmitted his Confidentiality Clearance 3 times because of previous omissions. Sounds like perjury to me.

Not sure about anyone else, but I know I would have been fired, at my previous jobs, if I have failed to supply important information 4 times. :?

Trump : "In fact, maybe it was mentioned at some point". :lol:

Sounds like someone is worried about being caught in a lie and is trying to CYA himself.

Just hilarious! Does this group EVER tell the truth?!

Being Roman Catholic as well, when a guy like Pence is around it makes no difference to me. I wish he weren't "Catholic" for that matter.

Common religion or other religious belief does not make otherwise wrongful or distasteful views any better.

Put Republican Neoconservative and social conservative Mike Pence in the same room with Neoliberal Joe Biden for that matter. Who cares! :roll:

Indeed that's a fine point. But it's the same for Hillary in possessing classified information in an unauthorized location.

It's both or none who would have to be imprisoned, or one is a hypocrite. And these days sadly it will be neither.

Much like you are correct about if we were to lie on a job application or resume, by contrast those of us "worker-bees" would be fired for even lesser violations in working in such classified circles. :thdn:

I can live with both - actually 3, if one is named Kushner.

Exactly! We'd be gone like the morning mist. Kushner should be gone, too.

Having said this, sadly, I don`t believe it will happen.


And sadly I think now it is more likely to happen than not as the daggers are handed out to more associated with the GOP including to the hacks and shills in the news media for the GOP at the likes of Fox News.

Then with Pence I know we are screwed and it's off to some open war(s), for he's Darth Cheney 2.0.


It's funny now how some of the ardent Trumpettes on Fox are now saying that the whole Republication party is riding the coat tails of Trump since he got elected. :roll: Those pesky Republicans just won't go along with anything The Orange Dummy wants.

Apparently the lawyer in question was lobbying with a Democrap to have this Magnisky Act overturned.

Rohrabacher said he believed Veselnitskaya and her U.S. colleagues, which included former Rep. Ronald Dellums (D-Calif.), were lobbying other lawmakers to reverse the Magnitsky Act and restore the ability of Americans to adopt Russian children that Moscow had suspended.


Wow! Democraps colluding with the Russians?

Kushner better break out the form, again. Looks like it needs amending.

Americans, take notice, our health care system is not benchmark material:

Canada ranks third-last in study of health care in 11 rich countries

Canada placed third from the bottom in a major new study of health care in 11 affluent nations, a score that reflects this country’s poor performance on measures such as infant mortality, access to after-hours medical care and the affordability of dental visits and prescription drugs.

Canada’s ninth-place finish is a slight improvement over 2014, when the Commonwealth Fund, a New York-based private research foundation, put Canada in 10th place, ahead of only the United States.

In the group’s new report, released Friday, Canada pulled ahead of France, but stayed well behind such standouts as the United Kingdom, Australia and the Netherlands, which ranked first, second and third.

This is where we got killed...

"and the affordability of dental visits and prescription drugs"

Not a fair fight. Take those 2 out and measure.

I'd be the first to say our dentists are crooks and our prescription drug prices are disgusting.

Prescription drugs should be part of our universal health care. With more and more people having jobs that do not come with benefits - there are too many low wage workers who can't afford to fill their presriptions if they have some sort of chronic condition - and by them not taking their drugs means higher health care costs for them down the road that we all have to cover in the long run.

Amen, brother.

Other countries do it. We can, too. Our prices are outrageous.
