January 12, 2018, T+356: Trump questions why immigrants come from shithole countries and the mainstream media goes wild. Wait until he drops the "F-bomb" -- like Joe Biden did some years ago, and did so on more than one occasion.

January 11, 2018, T+355: add Walmart to the list that is rewarding its employees with increased hourly wages; one-time bonuses; increased paternity/maternity leave citing the Trump tax bill.

January 4, 2018, T+348:

January 3, 2018, T+347: Iran imploding? NOKO willing to talk to SOKO directly. Will suspend military exercises during Winter Olympics. I can't imagine this happened in a vacuum.

January 2, 2018, T+346: Nasdaq surges; other markets up nicely. Al Franken quietly resigns in letter of resignation. No speech. Swan song long forgotten.

December 29, 2017, T+342: CNN fascinated for three days now by a "white truck" obstructing their view of President Trump golfing. It's gotten so bad, the other networks are parodying their coverage. Some noted that while CNN is fascinated by a white truck obstructing their view, CNN never seemed concerned about Bill Clinton's plane parked on the tarmac along with the plane of the US attorney general when Hillary was being investigated by the FBI during the campaign. Just saying.

December 22, 2017, T+335: President Trump signs the tax bill. He notes that President Truman holds the all-time record for most legislation passed in one year ... until now. President Trump now holds that record. I did not know that; the media has not mentioned that once.

December 21, 2017, T+334: government shut-down next deadline. GOP votes to keep government open; Democrats wanted to shut down the government.
