Sanders introduces universal health care, backed by 15 Democrats

Sanders introduces universal health care, backed by 15 Democrats | 13 Aug 2017 | Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) introduced legislation Wednesday that would expand Medicare into a universal health insurance program with the backing of at least 15 Democratic senators -- a record level of support for an idea that had been relegated to the fringes during the last Democratic Deep State-owned presidency. Sanders's bill, the Medicare for All Act of 2017, has no chance of passage in a Republican-run Congress. But after months of behind-the-scenes meetings and a public pressure campaign, the bill is already backed by most of the senators seen as likely 2020 Democratic candidates -- if not by most senators facing tough reelection battles in 2018.

Senate Intel slips sentence into bill that could lead to spying on US citizens | 12 Sept 2017 | A Senate panel may be stealthily trying to give federal law enforcement a new tool to go after the anti-secrecy group WikiLeaks and its U.S. collaborators.

The clause says that WikiLeaks "resembles a non-state hostile intelligence service" and that the U.S. government "should treat it as such."

Absolute lunacy: Vanity Fair outrage: Michelle Obama, not Melania Trump, makes International Best Dressed List and people blame politics | 07 Sept 2017 | Vanity Fair just released its annual International Best Dressed List, but there's one name in particular that's missing and people have taken notice.

These voters likely used out-of-state driver's licenses and have not since obtained an in-state license or registered a vehicle. New Hampshire House Speaker Shawn Jasper, a Republican, released the data Thursday following his inquiries to the state's Department of State and the Department of Safety, which supervise elections. The new figures could potentially call into question the validity of the New Hampshire results for Nov. 8, when Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton out-polled Republican nominee Donald Trump by a mere 2,736 votes.

Supreme Court temporarily restores Trump's travel ban
