The Progressive Left’s 10 things to know for Today… Our response

A little McCain humor

WHO ASKS TRUMP FOR WIRETAP CLAIM PROOF

Sen. John McCain called on Trump to reveal evidence that then-President Obama bugged phones at Trump Tower – or retract the accusation.

TRUMP TO SEND BUDGET PLAN TO CONGRESS

The president’s $54 billion military spending increase proposal, and deep cuts to domestic programs, face a reality test with Republicans in control, many of whom are already crying over the prospect of losing piggy treats.


ABRUPT DISMISSALS OF 46 FEDERAL PROSECUTORS LEAVES VOID

The quick exits aren’t expected to have a major impact on ongoing prosecutions, but they gave U.S. attorneys little time to prepare deputies who will take over temporarily. Of course they knew it was going to happen… they knew it was going to happen in November of last year…. no sob story here.


WHY GOP PUSH TO REPEAL OBAMACARE WORRIES SOME HOSPITALS

Planned cuts to health care will likely leave more poor uninsured – forcing clinics, hospitals and states to foot the bills.

What surprises us most is the number of doctors that have fallen into the trap of becoming employees as opposed to private owners of their practice.

RISING OCEAN TEMPERATURES KILL CORAL REEFS AROUND GLOBE

Even if the world could halt global warming now, scientists still expect that more than 90 percent of corals will die by 2050.

Okay… one more progressive myth added to the pot….


‘KONG’ REIGNS AS BOX OFFICE KING

“Kong: Skull Island” amasses $61 million in its first weekend in theaters, easily passing “Logan.”

We like Logan but The Big Ape Always Wins…..


FATHER, SON BATTLE FOR LEAD IN IDITAROD RACE

Mitch Seavey departs a checkpoint five minutes ahead of his son Dallas, about a third of the way through the 1,000-mile race.
