So Trump held a Presser yesterday. He covered a few topics: Russian hacking, Intelligence community leaks, his time schedule to Build-the-Wall, the steps hes taken to avert even an appearance of conflict of interest with his corporation. Butt the only thing anyone wanted to talk about was the completely fabricated yet salaciously entertaining Russian Golden Shower report. That our Intelligence community saw fit to present the dossier last Friday to the president, the president-elect and the Congressional so-called Gang of Eight speaks more to the state of our Intelligence community than anything else.
To say the report lacked veracity is rather obvious at this point.
It would be the equivalent of the National Intelligence Community presenting one of Ulstermans (now defunct) wildly entertaining, albeit completely fabricated, interviews with the unnamed White House Insider to a Congressional committee as fact.[Ed. Not to be confused with the Molsterman Reports which are 100% certifiably true and accurate] Even though a quick Google of D.W. Ulsterman would have identified him as a writer of fiction.
Anyway, I thought somebody might want to talk about the costs to the Trump family associated with a Trump presidency: Ivanka is giving up her job while her husband, Jared, is stepping aside from his companies - Kushner Companies and Observer Media. The Trump Organization will not enter any new development deals while Trump is president and they have terminated all pending business deals, no doubt incurring millions of dollars in walk-away fees. To say this adds up to billions and billions is not an overstatement. Its Yooge!
Butt its not enough for the Left, which has suddenly rediscovered ethics after they have spent the last 8 years of the unholy Obama-Clinton alliance on hiatus (along with the Media).
Buh-bye to the Ethics Takes a Holiday Era
I would think the Media would be pleased that Ethics will once again be taking up residence in the White House.

Yep. That wuz a sad, sad song, This feller’s wife run out on him to become a Rodeo Queen:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GU9qWR6Bosw
THE GANG OF EIGHT (immigration) was four Democratic senators and four Republican senators:
Sen. Michael Bennet, D-CO
Sen. Richard J. Durbin, D-IL
Sen. Jeff Flake, R-AZ
Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-SC
Sen. John McCain, R-AZ
Sen. Bob Menendez, D-NJ
Sen. Marco Rubio, R-FL
Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-NY
ThIS infamous “Gang of Eight” is the bi-partisan group of eight Senators who wrote the 2013 comprehensive immigration reform (CIR) bill and bringing comprehensive immigration reform back to the legislative branch in 2013.
These eight senators wrote the first draft of the Border Security, Economic Opportunity, and Immigration Modernization Act of 2013, or “the immigration bill” which the House of Representatives has not acted on yet after passed by the Senate.
Their policies include:
1. A citizenship path for illegal aliens already in the United States contingent on certain border security and visa tracking improvements. The plan provides for permanent residence for illegal aliens only after legal immigrants waiting for a current priority date receive their permanent residence status and a different citizenship path for agricultural workers through reducing current visa backlogs and fast tracking permanent residence for U.S. university immigrant graduates with advanced degrees in STEM fields: science, technology, engineering.
3. Expanded and improved employment verification system for all employers to confirm employee work authorization.
4. Improved work visa options for low-skilled workers including an agricultural worker program.
THE GANG OF EIGHT (intelligence) are briefed on classified intelligence matters by the executive branch.
The President of the United States is required by 50 U.S.C. § 413(a)(1) to “ensure that the congressional intelligence committees are kept fully and currently informed of the intelligence activities of the United States.” And, under 50 U.S.C. § 413(b)(c2), the President may elect to report under “extraordinary circumstances” when thought “it is essential to limit access” to information about a covert action. They are sworn to secrecy and there is no vote process.
U.S. House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence:
1. Devin Nunes (R): (Chair)
2. Adam Schiff (D): (Ranking member)
U.S. Senate Select Committee on Intelligence:
3. Richard Burr (R): (Chair)
4. Mark Warner (D): (Vice Chairman)
5. Paul Ryan (R): (Speaker of the House)
6. Nancy Pelosi (D): (Minority leader)
7. Mitch McConnell (R): (Majority leader)
8. Chuck Schumer (D): (Minority leader)
No, everyone is talking about Trump slapping down CNN.
