Just a Thought...
It Is Domestic Terrorism

So the shooting in Las Vegas is NOT being called an act of domestic terrorism by the media... cowards afraid to say the 'T' word I guess.

Rebound: New Poll Shows Good News on GOP Tax Reform Proposal, Improved Trump Ratings
As Leah mentioned earlier, the latest national survey from Politico and Morning Consult contains several top line results that will arrive as welcome news at the White House.  The GOP's tax reform package -- both on specific provisions and overall -- is viewed pretty favorably by most Americans following a successful rollout, and the president's job approval rating has ticked back up into the mid-40's.  These tax plan numbers are strong, even if Trump's rating has merely improved to 'less bad.'  He's still underwater, but trending upward:

After being informed about the tax proposal's various elements, voters give it a general thumbs-up by nearly 40 points.  Ironically, the least popular piece is corporate tax cuts (the US has the highest corporate tax rate in the developed world), which even many Congressional Democrats support; President Obama even proposed it.

Mueller Now Looking at 'Trump Dossier' in Russia Probe                                                                                                           Robert Mueller (AP) 


The special counsel investigating whether Russia tried to sway the 2016 U.S. election has taken over FBI inquiries into a former British spy's dossier of allegations of Russian financial and personal links to President Donald Trump's campaign and associates, sources familiar with the inquiry told Reuters.

A report compiled by former MI6 officer Christopher Steele identified Russian businessmen and others whom U.S. intelligence analysts have concluded are Russian intelligence officers or working on behalf of the Russian government.

A spokesman for special counsel Robert Mueller declined comment. The FBI also declined comment.
Three sources with knowledge of Mueller's probe said his investigators have assumed control of multiple inquiries into allegations by U.S. intelligence agencies that Russia interfered in the election to benefit Trump, a Republican.

Russia has repeatedly denied any meddling in the election.

Two officials familiar with the investigations said that both Mueller's team and the Senate Intelligence Committee are seeking any evidence that former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort or others who had financial dealings with Russia might have helped Kremlin intelligence agencies target email hacking and social media postings undermining Trump's election opponent, Democrat Hillary Clinton.
