In other news, US trade officials say they're "not satisfied yet" following the latest round of trade talks with China. I think that should be read as 'Trump is not satisfied yet.'

Meanwhile, Batshit Caucus Republicans Mark Meadows and Jim Jordan have sent letters to pharmaceutical CEOs warning them not to cooperate with an Oversight Committee investigation into drug prices, because Republicans don't believe in actual oversight.

Finally, the Chinese woman arrested by the Secret Service at Trump's Mar-a-Lago resort had a lot more than a suspicious thumb-drive in her possession.

Ms. Zhang had entered the property with four cellphones, a hard drive and a thumb drive infected with malware, according to federal court records. Upon searching her hotel room, investigators found another cellphone and a radio frequency device that detects hidden cameras, Assistant United States Attorney Rolando Garcia said.

She also had nine U.S.B. drives and five SIM cards in her room at the Colony Hotel, along with several debit cards and about $8,000 in cash, including about $700 in Chinese currency, Mr. Garcia said during a bond hearing at the U.S. District Court in West Palm Beach.

This woman is definitely a spy, right?

We're three days away from Brexit.

    At least Ms. Zhang didn’t have a private email server because THAT would be a problem.

      “But her emails” seems a bit quaint now, doesn’t it.

        Seriously, I want Democrats to fucking hammer Republicans with all the shit they blind-eyed. Tie every one of them to trump day in and day out and absolutely do not stop until they are politically neutered and walk away out of raw despair.

          Well, they are currently packing the courts with every ‘legal neanderthal’ they can find so, I don’t think they will disappear easily now. But disappear they must. They do nothing but inflict disaster after disaster on the country.

    As a chronic pain patient on disability, I can tell you with some authority that..we are supporting an entirely unnecessary industry of insurance, fees, drug prices, and hospital and doctors’ fees. Ancient and inexpensive, reliable drugs are jacked up thousands of percent, and we are required to visit docs charging 200.00 a visit every thirty days for new scrips. They don’t lower the specialty fee..I’ve been charged the same fee from my first visit over three years ago until this month. It’s essentially a racket whereby everyone profits from your pain and disability. Everyone gets their cut. It’s worse than disgusting and immoral..this goes right into the evil category. But, I guess that’s the America we live in now…
