ANOTHER Chumph Smackdown! Federal Judge Rules Executive Order Unconstitutional

I can imagine the Chumph can’t wait to get his stooges on the benches across America so he can twist and destroy the Constitution…

But right now he is stuck with those that are in place.

On the Chumph “Executive Order” on Sanctuary Cities, withdrawing all Federal funding...

“Although the Government’s new interpretation of the Order  is not legally plausible, ineffect it appears to put the parties in general agreement regarding the Order’s constitutional
limitations. The Constitution vests the spending powers in Congress, not the President, so the Order cannot constitutionally place new conditions on federal funds. Further, the Tenth Amendment requires that conditions on federal funds be unambiguous and timely made; that they bear some relation to the funds at issue; and that the total financial incentive not be coercive.Federal funding that bears no meaningful relationship to immigration enforcement cannot be threatened merely because a jurisdiction chooses an immigration enforcement strategy of which the President disapproves.”

Another Conservative Icon, Rush Limbaugh Radio Headed for the Dumpster

Oh my…Add to the death toll of conservatwit blowhards…

Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity face uncertain futures with iHeartMedia

Top radio station owner and programming syndicator says it might not exist in 12 months

The parent company of iHeartCommunications, which syndicates programs by conservative talk-show hosts Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity, appears to be headed toward bankruptcy.

In a statement filed last week with the Securities and Exchange Commission, the federal agency charged with regulating companies that offer investments to the public, iHeartCommunications’ parent company, iHeartMedia Inc., said that it had “substantial doubt” that it would be in business by the middle of next year.

Beyond syndicating shows by Limbaugh, Hannity and other hosts like Steve Harvey and Ryan Seacrest, iHeartCommunications owns and operates more than 800 radio stations. It also sells ads on thousands of billboards across the country.

The radio industry as a whole has been fading away, not because people aren’t tuning in but rather because advertisers have been shifting their dollars to the online world where performance can be measured much more effectively, according to radio industry veteran Seth Resler: “What many people don’t realize is that the job of a radio salesperson is getting harder as more and more clients start thinking about advertising as a science and not an art,” Resler wrote. “As an industry, we simply aren’t providing them with the tools they need to compete against these new mediums.”

According to a 2016 Pew Research Center report, more than 90 percent of Americans said they have listened to radio via an online or broadcast form in a given week.

The ad challenge is made worse for iHeartCommunications since many of its stations feature a conservative talk format whose audience is literally dying off. According to industry figures, the age of a talk show listener is about 67. Further complicating things for the company has been that its top host, Limbaugh, has immersed himself in several controversies in recent years, such as the time he called a liberal activist a “slut” on the air.

Being in an expensive, dying and controversial industry isn’t good for stock prices, which is why in 2008, iHeartCommunications became a wholly owned subsidiary of iHeartMedia in a $24 billion stock buyout transaction initiated by Bain Capital, the investment firm for which past GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney labored for many years.

That buyout option saddled iHeartMedia with a huge amount of debt, almost $350 million of which is about to come due, according to MarketWatch reporter Ciara Linnane.

In December ratings agency Moody’s said that iHeartMedia had a “negative” outlook, a sign that its already junk-level bond rating might be downgraded even further.

According to Reuters, iHeartMedia is trying to kick the debt can further down the road by trying to pay off its maturing bonds by purchasing other ones while undergoing yet another corporate overhaul.

But this time, the company’s bondholders aren’t playing along. Per Reuters, a group that claims to represent more than half of the company’s lenders are refusing to cooperate with the restructuring plan, meaning that there is a very real possibility that iHeartMedia may have to declare Chapter 11 bankruptcy in order to evade its creditors.

Should such a restructuring happen, there’s a very real chance that it could allow iHeartMedia to force Limbaugh, Hannity and its other top talents to renegotiate their contracts for a lower payment amount. Of course, that’s assuming that there would be any takers on what are likely to be bonds that would be sold at fire-sale prices.

Will Rush Limbaugh need a government bailout?

73% Don’t Trust Republican Congress To Do a Honest Investigation of Russia-Trump

Liars, traitors,  and scumbags like Nunes and Chaffetz have eliminated any trust in Republicans putting Patriotism over Party…

Poll: 73% Back Independent Probe of Russian Election Interference

Nearly three-quarters of Americans say they want an independent, non-partisan commission instead of Congress to investigate Russia’s involvement in the 2016 election, according to the latest NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll.

Seventy-three percent of respondents prefer the independent investigation, versus 16 percent who pick Congress.

Still, a majority of Americans — 54 percent — believe that Congress should investigate whether there was contact between the Russian government and the Trump campaign, which is essentially unchanged from February’s NBC/WSJ poll.

That includes 84 percent of Democrats and 51 percent of independents who want to see this congressional investigation, but just 21 percent of Republican respondents who want it.

Yet a combined 61 percent of Americans say they have little to no confidence in Congress conducting a fair and impartial investigation into Russia’s involvement in the 2016 election.

Only a combined 39 percent say they have “some” or a “great deal” of confidence in Congress conducting a fair and impartial investigation.

These numbers come as committees in both the House and Senate are looking into Russia’s involvement in the 2016 election. But the House investigation erupted in controversy after House Intelligence Committee Devin Nunes, R-Calif., suggested that Trump and his associates may have been monitored by U.S. intelligence officials during the transition.

Nunes stepped aside from the investigation earlier this month.

Ptomaine-a-Largo

Maybe we will get lucky, and the Chumph will get food-poisoning from his own crappy kitchen and die.

Problem is, at the rate he is bringing people to his bar, their negligence could well take out a world leader from another country.

The Chumph will likely issue and executive order getting rid of those pesky food safety regulations.

Inspectors found 13 health violations in Mar-a-Lago’s kitchen — just days before Japanese PM’s visit

Health inspectors have found 13 safety violations at President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort, including “dangerous” raw fish and food stored in broken down coolers.

The Miami Herald reports that inspectors found these safety violations in Mar-a-Lago’s kitchen just days before Trump hosted Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe. Three of the violations were deemed “high priority” for the club, meaning they needed to be addressed immediately to prevent the spread of illness-producing bacteria on plates in the dining room.

Among other things, inspectors found the Mar-a-Lago kitchen staff failed to properly treat raw fish to remove parasites before serving it; stored ham at a temperature of 57 degrees, or 16 degrees higher than regulations allow; and failed to properly maintain coolers, which were ordered to be repaired immediately.

The 13 violations inspectors hit Mar-a-Lago with this year were a record for the club, which had 11 violations in 2016 and just two in 2015.

Big Bird 2, Chumph 0

Republicans are at it again trying to kill Big Bird. Seems they shoulda learned from the last go-round.

The Chumph wants to kill Sesame Street so he can but some tanks to parade down Constitution Avenue on May Day.

That isn’t going to happen.

The Chumph’s budget is headed down the same dead end road as his Obamacare repeal…DOA.

Americans want to keep “Sesame Street,” not Trump’s budget cuts: poll

It appears that the American Health Care Act isn’t the only part of President Donald Trump’s agenda that is getting skewered in the polls.

In a press release on Friday, Quinnipiac University announced the results of their latest poll on Trump’s budget. It finds that more than four-out-of-five Americans oppose cutting funds to medical research (87 percent to 9 percent), new road and transit projects (84 percent to 13 percent), and after school and summer school programs (83 percent to 14 percent).

By somewhat smaller margins, voters are also opposed to eliminating the Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (79 percent to 17 percent), the Corporation for Public Broadcasting (70 percent to 25 percent), and the National Endowment for the Arts and the National Endowment for the Humanities (66 percent to 27 percent).

Like the separate Quinnipiac University Poll released on Thursday, this new survey indicates a significant lack of public support for President Trump’s legislative agenda outside of his own Republican base. The poll from Thursday found that 74 percent of Americans oppose cutting funds to Medicaid (only 22 percent support it) and 56 percent oppose the Obamacare repeal bill (only 17 percent support it). By contrast, only 41 percent of Republicans supported the Obamacare repeal bill (24 percent opposed it), although even a majority of Republicans did not want to cut Medicaid funds (54 percent opposed compared to 39 percent supporting).

Friday’s poll also contained mixed news for Trump regarding support for his programs within the Republican Party. While an overwhelming majority support his Mexican wall proposal (74 percent to 24 percent), 50 percent of Republicans — and 74 percent of total voters — don’t want Trump to lower taxes on the wealthy (43 percent and 22 percent support him doing so, respectively).

Trumpcare DOA!

Repealing Obamacare and replacing it with a pathetically flawed Trumpcare is Dead on Arrival as the sponsors are forced again to cancel the House vote.

Image result for trumpcare

Donald Trump announced Friday that the House of Representatives would postpone a planned vote on the American Health Care Act, the Republican bill to repeal Obamacare.

The news was first reported by Robert Costa of the Washington Post, who spoke to the president directly.

The announcement came while a debate over the bill was still playing out in the House chamber, with GOP leaders realizing they lacked the votes to prevail.

It was not immediately clear when Congress plans to resume consideration of repeal ― or whether it will do so at all.

The postponement is a devastating defeat for Trump and Ryan, and a major setback in the crusade against Obamacare that has defined Republican Party politics for seven years.

GOP health-care bill: House Republican leaders abruptly pull their rewrite of the nation’s health-care law

House Republican leaders abruptly pulled a Republican rewrite of the nation’s health-care system from consideration on Friday, a dramatic acknowledgment that they are so far unable to repeal the Affordable Care Act.

“We just pulled it,” President Trump told the Washington Post in a telephone interview.

The decision came a day after President Trump delivered an ultimatum to lawmakers – and the defeat represented multiple failures for the new president and House Speaker Paul D. Ryan (R-Wis.).

The decision means the Affordable Care Act remains in place, at least for now, and a major GOP campaign promise goes unfulfilled. The decision also casts doubt on the GOP’s ability to govern and to advance other high-stakes agenda items, including tax reform and infrastructure spending. Ryan is still without a signature achievement as speaker – and the defeat undermines Trump’s image as a skilled dealmaker willing to strike compromises to push his agenda forward.

The Chumph can’t tell the truth and he can’t lead.
