The last few months I'm being mail bombed by the GOP(e) getting 20+ emails a day begging for money. These are the same people who were preening and prancing with Paul Ryan and the DNC MFM "This is not who we are" cr@p. President Donald John Trump is the only one I'm inclined to support right now. The gope showed their true allegiance when they held the majority and worked to undercut Trump's agenda.

President-Elect Jim,SunnyvaleCA

Unelected federal bureaucracies are sometimes called the 4th Branch of government. Congress will write some law, for example, regarding clean drinking water. Few details will be provided. Then the Federal Departments will crank out volumes of regulations that must be obeyed by citizens, businesses and local government. Due to the famous legal cases "Chevron", "Auer" and others the courts have given these regulations the force of law.

Federalist Society has lots of stuff, including a series of podcasts, on the issue. It's pretty geeky LOL
https://regproject.org

This podcast shows the benefit of having a Republican President such as PDJT in office.
https://regproject.org/free-lunch-podcast-e54/

It's long and geeky but if you listen to the anecdote that runs from 17:00 to 23:00, you'll get evidence to explain why Trump has been great for the economy.

Jim, Sunnyvale, That thought passed my mind as well. I don't know what dehydration looks like (she didn't seen flushed), so can't evaluate the "I didn't drink enough water" explanation.

Tom R

The Cleveland oped on Flynn prompts two questions.

Does it not seem extremely fishy that only one day passed between when Flynn got indicted and when he agreed to a plea bargain deal? I would have thought a high priced DC law firm that Flynn retained would need more than a few hours to provide him competent legal advice and to coordinate with the Mueller SC on the details of the plea bargain.

The oped also states Trump-appointed US Attorney Jessie Liu has taken over the case from Mueller. If the Mueller SC wrongfully indicted Flynn, engaged in prosecutorial misconduct, etc as many Trump supporters believe, then why doesn't Liu do the right thing and drop the case?
