Trump Haters – Free Pharmacare
Victims of ‘Trump Derangement Syndrome’ land in ICU after Putin freakout — Here’s my prescription
As soon as President Trump concluded his successful summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Finland on Monday, the Washington swamp and liberal media launched a concerted effort to falsely portray our president’s positive foreign policy achievement in the most negative light possible.
The rabidly anti-Trump reporters covering the summit were single-mindedly obsessed by the collusion myth – determined to prove that the Trump presidential campaign colluded with Russia to help Donald Trump win the 2016 presidential race, despite no real evidence to support this cockamamie theory.
Geraldo on Helsinki Fallout: ‘Trump Derangement Syndrome Is a Real Thing’
Geraldo Rivera said criticism of President Trump’s summit with Russian leader Vladimir Putin has been “absolutely overblown” because there’s such widespread anti-Trump sentiment in the mainstream media.
Following the two leaders’ press conference in Helsinki, Finland, on Monday, some pundits and Democratic lawmakers suggested that Trump was “treasonous” or a “traitor” for appearing to side with Putin, rather than with the U.S. intelligence community, on Russian meddling in the 2016 elections.
Pharmacare won’t be free for all Canadians, Bill Morneau says
Federal Finance Minister Bill Morneau says a new national pharmacare program will be “fiscally responsible” and designed to fill in gaps, not provide prescription drugs for Canadians already covered by existing plans.
Speaking at the Economic Club of Canada in Ottawa to kick off a post-budget sales job, Morneau said many Canadians are without coverage, including people who are self-employed. Some parts of the system are working well but others are not, he said.
“We need a strategy to deal with the fact not everyone has access, and we need to do it in a way that’s responsible, that deals with the gaps, but doesn’t throw out the system that we currently have,” he said.
One Last Blockbuster Store Left Standing
There is one Blockbuster store left in the U.S., and that’s in Bend, Oregon. The once-giant video and game rental house amassed more than 9,000 stores in the U.S. at its peak in 2004, with retail outlets internationally. But at its decline, even John Oliver tried to save a Blockbuster in Alaska by stocking it with memorabilia.
Supreme Court Ruling Delivers a Sharp Blow to Labor Unions
The Supreme Court dealt a major blow on Wednesday to organized labor. By a 5-to-4 vote, with the more conservative justices in the majority, the court ruled that government workers who choose not to join unions may not be required to help pay for collective bargaining.
Forcing those workers to finance union activity violated the First Amendment, Justice Samuel A. Alito Jr. wrote for the majority. “We conclude that this arrangement violates the free speech rights of nonmembers by compelling them to subsidize private speech on matters of substantial public concern,” he wrote.
