No sarcasm here either. For the first time in eight years I can say I'm proud of America!

Bye, bye eight years of failed policies and making America a second rate world power.

Bye, bye legacy!

Here's just a sample of what you can expect more of:

The Most Dangerous Bill You’ve Never Heard Of Just Passed The House

[www.huffingtonpost.com]?

Nothing to cheer about, IMO.

Donald Trump has been President for only a few hours. But he’s already started attacking our environment.

One of his first acts was to take down the White House’s website on climate change and replace it with an “energy plan.” The plan says Trump “is committed to eliminating” the Climate Action Plan and the Waters of the US rule. Rumors are flowing that approval of Keystone XL and Dakota Access could be next.

President Trump and the First Lady really impressed me today.

He really had the air of the Commander in Chief and proved he was the right person to lead America in the right direction. He took the high road with thanking Hillary (although Bill was busy checking out Melania) and already has begun to dismiss the climate change hoax.

Already actions have been made to put America first.

Trump / Pence 2020 Keep America Great.!

Come on now Joan, I'm sure you didn't feel this way when Chris Matthews from MSNBC said Obama sent a thrill of his leg on election night. So let me enjoy the moment just like I did 8 years ago when your man got elected.

Individual freedom and choice returns to America!

The order stated that relevant agency heads “shall exercise all authority and discretion available to them to waive, defer, grant exemptions from, or delay the implementation of any provision or requirement of the Act that would impose a fiscal burden on any State or a cost, fee, tax, penalty, or regulatory burden on individuals, families, healthcare providers, health insurers, patients, recipients of healthcare services, purchasers of health insurance, or makers of medical devices, products, or medications.”

The language does not specifically cite the individual mandate -- which was at the center of the Supreme Court battle under the Obama administration that ultimately left the law in place -- but was seen as a potential swipe at that provision, among others.

LIAR IN CHIEF.

CNN Declines to Air White House Press Conference Live

"CNN’s decision to not air the press conference live illustrates a recognition that the role of the press must be different under Trump. When the White House holds press briefings to promote demonstrably false information and refuses to take questions, then press ‘access’ becomes meaningless at best and complicit at worst,” said Danna Young, an associate professor at the University of Delaware who studies politics and the media. “Democracy works best when journalists have access to the executive branch, of course. But that holds true if and only if that access leads to verifiable, accurate information. The decision on behalf of CNN to wait and verify before airing it live suggests that the media are adapting quickly to this new era.”

After White House counselor Kellyanne Conway stunned the media on Sunday morning with her assertion that Sean Spicer’s Saturday press conference was not filled with blatant lies about the number of attendees at Trump’s inauguration, just “alternative facts,” even Meet the Press host and interviewer Chuck Todd had to laugh at her absurdity.

Dan Rather, however, was not amused, and he took to Facebook to give his take on the segment.

‘These are not normal times. These are extraordinary times. And extraordinary times call for extraordinary measures.

‘When you have a spokesperson for the president of the United States wrap up a lie in the Orwellian phrase “alternative facts”…

‘When you have a press secretary in his first appearance before the White House reporters threaten, bully, lie, and then walk out of the briefing room without the cajones to answer a single question…

‘When you have a President stand before the stars of the fallen CIA agents and boast about the size of his crowds (lies) and how great his authoritarian inaugural speech was….

‘These are not normal times.

‘The press has never seen anything like this before. The public has never seen anything like this before. And the political leaders of both parties have never seen anything like this before.

‘What can we do? We can all step up and say simply and without equivocation. “A lie, is a lie, is a lie!” And if someone won’t say it, those of us who know that there is such a thing as the truth must do whatever is in our power to diminish the liar’s malignant reach into our society.

‘Facts and the truth are not partisan. They are the bedrock of our democracy. And you are either with them, with us, with our Constitution, our history, and the future of our nation, or you are against it. Everyone must answer that question.’

LIAR in chief: Always looking out for the little guy.

FHA mortgage premium cuts helping low-income homebuyers cancelled by President Trump

Soon after he was sworn in as the 45th president of the United States, Donald John Trump set to work signing executive orders. And one of his first actions was to roll back a discount on the fees for a federal mortgage program that helps middle-class homebuyers.

Last week, the outgoing Housing and Urban Development secretary, Julian Castro, said the Federal Housing Administration would cut its fees on mortgage insurance starting Jan. 27. The FHA backs mortgages for homebuyers with less-than-perfect credit scores or who put down small down payments. About 1 in 5 mortgages is backed by the FHA, according to reports. The program is particularly popular with low-income and first-time homebuyers.

Castro said the cut, of a quarter of a percentage point, was necessary to offset rising mortgage rates. If it had gone in effect, it would have saved a homebuyer borrowing $200,000 about $500 on their yearly insurance premium.

But on Friday, HUD, which administers the program, said the reduction was “suspended indefinitely.”

Democratic leader Chuck Schumer denounced Trump’s move, speaking on the floor of the Senate.

“One hour after talking about helping working people and ending the cabal in Washington that hurts people, he signs a regulation that makes it more expensive for new homeowners to buy mortgages,” Schumer said.

Ben Carson, Trump’s nominee to lead HUD, told a Senate committee last week he would “really examine” the interest-rate cut.
