One year ago yesterday, the political earth stood still with the election of Donald Trump as President of the United States. A majority of American voters in 30 states awarded their electoral votes and the presidency to an outsider, a businessman and reality TV star with decades in the public eye, but no experience as an elected official. He won by running against the establishment in both political parties, the media, bad trade deals, and policies of countries such as Mexico and China that he believed were not in the best interest of the American people.
"All I can tell you is this, there was no collusion, there was no nothing," Donald Trump said, this time on his way to Asia. The use of a double negative, normally, is read as an affirmation, but it doesn’t matter much what Trump says about Russia. No one believes him, anymore, not even Republicans.
The Republican House of Representatives, through its House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Kevin Brady (R-TX) introduced the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act today. The legislation has been an important focus of the Republicans and the Trump administration and some believe, key to maintaining control of Congress next year.
Bellow is the "Built for Growth" outline of the committees' tax plan.
It has been a horrible year for Hollywood. Each week, the major studios are suffering from tremendous failures at the box office. It seems Americans are tired of wasting their hard earned money on liberal stars who express hated for President Trump or traditional values.
How did we get here? Can’t we stay on point and talk about the tax package, President Trump’s trip to Asia or at least, something safe that we can all agree upon, like the Trump-Russia, Clinton Dossier controversies?
On perhaps the very worst day of Donald Trump’s administration, in which two campaign volunteers, one happen to be his chief of staff, pleaded “not guilty” and a third volunteer, pled guilty to charges by Robert Mueller, the White House is being questioned about, what? Of course, slavery.
Trump at new low in poll
President Donald Trump’s job approval rating has declined to the lowest of his presidency. Not only that, nearly half of voters favor Democrats to serve as a check and balance to Trump and Congressional Republicans in the 2018 elections.
That’s the finding of a new NBC/Wall Street Journal .poll conducted by Democratic pollster Fred Yang of Hart Research Associates and Republican pollster Bill McInturff of Public Opinion Strategies.
His current job approval rating of 38%, with 58% disapproving, is the lowest in modern times for a president at this stage of his presidency.
As expected the Donald J. Trump troupe, including the President himself, have been on record, particularly on twitter. The Russia investigation now headed by former FBI Director Mueller is over. The Indictments have been filed and presented and everybody can relax and go home.
As per Trump’s tweetsters, the indictment of Paul Manfort and Rick Gates
As the White House waits to see which, and how many of its present or former, employees made Robert Mueller’s indictment roll, consider Mueller’s end game. It isn’t Trump, per se, though many would hope otherwise. It’s Russia. The FBI, which Mueller once headed, has always been at the forefront of combatting communism in America.
In the past week, there has been a cottage industry developing, lead by Donald Trump and Fox News, accusing the Democratic Party and Hillary Clinton of colluding with the Russians because they funded the now-infamous Steele dossier. Yet, these accusers are silent or claim not to be bothered when it comes to the events related to Donald Trump Jr and that now infamous Trump tower meeting.

The past decade and now in the age of Trump-dominance, is it possible that the Louisiana might not have any more white legislators?
