THE MODERATE AND MINDFUL REPUBLICANS ARE TURNING THEIR BACK ON REPUBLICAN ONLY RULE AND TRUMP

John McCain stood with his promise it is time to work across the isle.  Because Mitch McConnell refused to heed his warning, a very strong and determined John McCain voted down the repeal of Obama Care.

It does not end there Republican Senator Lindsey Graham openly said there will be holy hell to pay if AG Sessions is fired, and no confirmation hearing to replace him.  Going after Mueller will be the end of the Trump Presidency.




In my lifetime I never thought a respected US Senator would speak this way about the president.  And guys this is not a Democrat.  It a true blue rational conservative Republican.


HEAD OF JOINT CHIEFS REJECTS TRUMPS COMMAND ON NOT ALLOWING TRANSGENDERS TO SERVE

This is the most dangerous waters this country has ever entered between the president and the Joint Chiefs.  People are confused.  The Joint Chiefs do not take an oath to the president but to the Constitution and laws.

Constitutional law specialists are ready to seek an injunction if Trump ever goes through the proper channels to make his request official.  The Generals know Trump will lose, so for now they are openly defying him and standing with the law.  Remember military personnel do not have to accept illegal orders, even from the president.  This is a standoff which has damaged the presidency which in my opinion merits impeachment hearings in the house.  When the president forces our generals to challenge his orders as unlawful, we are entering dangerous waters which diminishes our democracy.

"The nation’s senior military officer said Thursday that there will be “no modifications” to Pentagon policies for now despite President Trumpsocial media posts declaring a ban on transgender troops in uniform.
Marine Gen. Joseph Dunford, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, wrote in a memo to commanders and senior enlisted leaders of the Army, Navy, Air Force and Marines that the military will continue to "treat all of our personnel with respect."
Dunford said Pentagon policy on transgender troops would not change until the White House has issued Trump’s directive to Secretary of Defense James Mattis through formal channels — not on Twitter —  and the secretary’s office issues guidance on implementation to the service chiefs. It’s unclear when that might happen."
I am nearly certain the lawyers will inform Trump if he completes the formal process it will never hold up and he will have lost all confidence in him by the generals.  But Trump does not seem to understand.  Lindsey Graham certainly understands.
Off to bed for an hour before a final meal on SPI and then back home.
