    That may be the case

    You are confused when you say "may be". It's right in front of you in black and white. Try to counter it if you think there is wiggle room.

    The fact is that you've openly admitted you'd engage in discriminatory behavior against black people, behavior that is textbook illegal. Your next comments appear to be, "I'm not renting to blacks not because I'm racist, I'm not renting to blacks for the legitimate reason that their entire race is too dangerous to rent to."

    Is that correct?

    Everyone the Russian ambassador calls in recorded, or at least there is an effort to. If he picks up the phone and orders a pizza then the guy answering it at the pizza shop is on the recording. Does that mean the pizza shop can say that they under surveillance by Obama for regular business dealings not related to a crime?

    The above example uses the Russian ambassador because it's a convenient example to make the point. There calls did not involve the Russians but obviously another actor. Switch put the Chinese ambassador or anyone foreign under surveillance. Hell it could even be Roger Stone and his "back door channel" talking to Wikileaks (talking to them isn't a crime.)

    The Congressman needs to clarify his comments. They are vague (see above) and are open to people such as yourself who don't know how the system works deciding to throw a speculation party. He also intentionally kept the news from the Democrats which took away their chance to comment and present their side. Again, he did that intentionally. He released information not normally released and did so in a way where he could control 100% of the narrative with no opposition. But yeah, let's hope he has honorable intentions.

    The FBI and the other intelligence agencies and Republicans have said there is no evidence of Obama wiretapping Trump. That hasn't changed. Perhaps the Congressman can reconcile that with his cryptic statements. Or maybe they are all covering it up.

    bass:. Ok, seriously now, the reality is, we want an affordable healthcare coverage that doesn’t break the back of all Americans and Obamacare in its current state is doing just that

    And your plan eliminates care. So we need a 3rd option, one where everyone is covered and it doesn't break the bank. The question is why is it so expensive to cover everyone when other countries able to do it? What is it about our system that seems to make it impossible?

    As for real estate discrimination, denying housing to all black people is an open and shut case. There are no debate points you can make that suddenly make your illegal actions legal, and telling me that I don't know you well enough is like saying, "Sure, I was doing 100 mph per hour in 50 mph zone, but you don't know me, so you can't say my actions were illegal."

    Stop people as myself? What in blazes are you talking about?

    What part of "you can't deny housing to people because they are black" do you not get? My gosh. Clear as day and you are debating it as if you have some really good reasons why the law shouldn't apply to you. Your type of thinking is exactly why they made these laws....to stop people like you from doing exactly what you are advocating.

    bass: the only thing they are trying to do is get the cost under control

    By eliminating millions of people from coverage, which I know you dont support.

    Would you be willing to invite Bernie Sanders to the table and all of this data and the attention he brings regarding the insane costs? You would have to work with people like him when you ask the Democrats to come on board. I said before that if costs were cheaper then we could have a bipartisan plan in about 10 minutes.

    bass:. Has nothing to do with me, but

    And

    Who said I was White???

    You were asked to provide evidence for your claim of reverse racism, something you said put Trump into office. You did not provide evidence. Your choice. Moving on.

    How do we know that some of these people weren't selling drugs in and around the neighborhood, prostitution

    As a licenced real estate agent I can tell everyone here that the above violates the Fair Housing Act which "prohibits discrimination in the sale, rental, and financing of dwellings, and in other housing-related transactions, based on race, color, national origin, religion, sex, familial status and disability."

    These laws were put in place specifically to stop people such as yourself, and it's based on your actions, not your thoughts, so feel free to describe yourself anyway you'd like. Still guilty.

    So not only did you not provide evidence of reverse racism against whites, you admitted to supporting actions clearly outlawed as racist.

    Over and done. Moving on.

    bass: Yeah, like 8 years ago the ACA will be affordable and you can keep your doctor.

    So let's throw millions of people off of insurance, throw more off by ending the medicaid expansion, and close down health screening for the poor at Planned Parwnthood?

    Look, obviously by your comments you aren't on board with the GOP plan and I applaud you for saying that. But the second a dreaded liberal says something about it you go on the warpath and start with the usual line by line "say the opposite or say nonsense" game. You not only distract others but now you are distracting yourself from your own points.

    I agree with what others are saying about change for the sake of change. For nearly a decade the GOP trashed Obamacare with no alternative plan on their minds and now they are stuck working with the pieces they have left, and they'd rather pass bad legislation to save their jobs because they are afraid of this monster anger they've created in their base. Short sighted, unworkable, and flat out bad leadership, and we're all going to pay the price.

    bass:. , I think reverse racism was being perpetrated against whites.

    Can you give us some examples of how this has impacted you?

    You are from one of the most open and potent societies on earth and are part of the race that is the majority by far and has a lock on all institutions. How big of a tissue do I need to get before your start strumming the blues of how you are persecuted?

    Remember, Trump had a "blacks need not apply" policy in some of his apartments and you've stated multiple times that that is not racist. So let's hear about this reverse racism that actually meets your standards of proof when that situation does not. This is crap spouted by right wing talk radio idiots is rotting your brain.

    “If we fail to get it done, fail to (meet) the promises made by all of us, including the president, then it could have a very detrimental effect to Republicans in ‘18 who are running for re-election,” said Rep. Mike Conaway, R-Texas. “If it fails, then there will be a lot of people looking for work in 2018.”

    Seems that passing the law will be equally detrimental. That's what happens when you promise something to your base you know you had no chance of delivering. The loss of Medicare coverage alone should send quite a few people over to the Democrat's side and help pad our 3,000,000+ vote advantage.

    “I would hate to be a Republican whose vote prevented us from keeping the commitment we’ve made to the American people for almost 10 years now,” McConnell said.

    Has it been that long? And you didn't do anything to create a new plan until a couple of months ago? I'd ask why but I'm not in your base so you don't really owe me an answer, and your own base is trained to not speak up.

    Trump promised during last year’s presidential campaign...

    You can ignore most things that follow that beginning.

    Some Democrats have said Republicans “stole” a Supreme Court seat last year

    Well of course they stole it. Obama was elected, a judge passed away, and Republicans set aside the Constitution and did what was best for their party. Obama could have appointed his own judge in a procedural move when Congress was in recess, but he's more of a "country before party" kind of guy.

    [Gorsuch] sidestepped answering whether he thought a series of contentious cases from the past had been decided correctly, including Roe v. Wade and cases on gun rights, political spending, religious rights and the ruling tipping the 2000 presidential election to Republican George W. Bush.

    OK.

    The two meetings should be an interesting contrast.

    Trump will most likely have some tough things to say to China, a lot of it deserved. Let's just hope he does it professionally and not via late night Twitter rants after the Chinese leave. He has a bad habit of turning himself into the big story. I actually kind of think when Trump goes unhinged it knocks the Chinese off balance so his mental issues actually work to our advantage. Might as well go with it.

    My guess is that the meeting with Russia will be more cordial, with Tillerson working to undermine the US intelligence agencies in the press over there. Probably no mention of the hacking that Trump believes Putin did, and probably no statements about the FBI's opinion that Russian used an intermediary to give information to Wikileaks. Lots of praise as well.

    We will see if my predictions are correct or not.

    Bass, the wiretapping issue has been investigated and concluded. No evidence supporting Trump's claims. Over and done, and Trump's been discredited except by his hardcore fans.

    Second point: The FBI has concluded, and is still investigating, Russian attempts to influence the election. There will probably be more information released in the future.

    Third point: The FBI is currently investigating any link between the Russians and Trump's team. It's ongoing and a conclusion hasn't been reached yet.

    You erroneously claim "no evidence" for the last point, but only as a way to have a response when someone brings up the first point. If no one mentions wiretapping, your comments about the last point changes to a "there might NOT be something there" kind of a thing which shows you understand it's being investigated with no conclusion. So you have two opposite points to the same issue depending on where you get stuck at.

    We both agree on the second point. There's some influence, we don't know how much, etc. And we both seem to have the same opinion (not conclusion) on the third one, which is that collusion seems unlikely. But we have to wait for them to finish.

    And that's where we stand.

    Trump's opinion is that the first one is true despite being discredited. As for the second point about Russian influence, he doesn't acknowledge it. For the third point about collusion he's spreading false information via Twitter about how the Democrats fabricated the story, most likely to confuse his base from hearing what the FBI just said.

    Republicans are focusing on how Flynn's name got released as a way to run interference for their party leader. It's a valid point to investigate, but obviously nothing like presidents wiretapping candidates or Russian meddling in our democracy. It should give them a way to dodge those questions by switching the topic to Flynn.

    Next up will be the Republican statements, which will probably be the same as they've always been. Something like "I don't agree with Trump but I support him.". Ryan uses that so much he should just print copies of the statement out each morning and change the date.

    Blacklabel:. So based on those findings, we are at the same place we were.

    Yep, no evidence whatsoever of Obama wiretapping Trump. It's now considered to be a baseless claim and will be ignored going forward except by Trump fans.

    So let's switch gears to help those Trump fans. What would you consider to be solid evidence to prove that something didn't happen? Can you give me some examples of what has to be done to give you reason enough to drop your baseless claim against Obama?

    Or let's try this. Trump makes an accusation every day for the next week with no proof. Will you have seven more "we just don't know" positions?

    Or how about this:. Tomorrow Trump wakes up and decides "I'm going to make up something and accuse Obama." Wouldn't you be forced to believe that it might be true until the day you die because you can't prove something didn't happen?

    Or...maybe I think you hacked my email and read them. Unless you could prove you didn't, that would mean you will always be suspected of doing it, right?

    Is any of this sinking in? This baseless accusation will be dropped except by Trump fans like yourself, but you're giving Trump and endless pass to start a new one the next day. That creates a distraction, meaning time and resources are used that could be spent elsewhere.

    So please, be very specific in terms of what proof could be put in front of you which would make you drop the accusation against Obama? And if you can't, what did you learn?

    bass:. but as of now, there is no proof, but that doesn't mean it didn't happen.

    It just means we are dealing with an unsubstantiated accusation, especially after testimony from multiple sources saying there is no evidence, making it really, really unsubstantiated heh.

    As a journalist, how do you treat those?

    Wiretaps are on all Russian calls, at least all they are able to get. That's how Flynn got picked up on a call. One issue related to that is how his name got leaked, and that's the GOP's focus since it doesn't involve Trump's unsubstantiated accusations.

    It's moot anyway. You clearly said you were going to wait for Comey's findings, and he said he sees no evidence supporting Trump's claims of Obama wiretapping him. That should be the end of that. Naturally you are free to abandon your previous statements because it ended up working against you, but then you're stepping into a credibility issue. Please clarify if that is what you are doing.

    Blacklabel:. Personally, I still believe he has something to prove it, so we will wait until the public hearings next week and see if anyone slips up.

    That was your response a few days ago into the investigation as to whether there was evidence Obama wiretapped Trump. You were waiting for the FBI's comments before you made a Personally, I still believe he has something to prove it, so we will wait until the public hearings next week and see if anyone slips up.. The FBI has spoken, said they know of nothing, so we can go ahead and put that issue to bed.

    Next up is the issue of Trump colluding with the Russians. Looks like you want to wait for that investogation to finish. Fair enough. Personally, I think they acted independently. No reason for the Russians to involve Trump if they don't have to, but maybe I am wrong.

    Yeah, this one is just weird since the FBI just told the world they are investigating team Trump's ties to Russia:

    "The Democrats made up and pushed the Russian story as an excuse for running a terrible campaign...."

    Like I said, it's dangerous for the president to be retreating into a bubble. He's going to isolate himself and that's not good for the country or the world.

    You have to assume that there will be a group of supporters who will ditch him, and on the other hand you have to assume the ones who are left will harden their positions despite all evidence to the contrary. The goal is to make that group as small as possible to take away Trump's ability to hide behind them.

    I believe Blacklabel said he would wait to see what the FBI had to say before making his decision, and this will be one of those times when we will see a Trump supporter either distance himself from Trump or go further into the black hole. Now apply that to his entire base.

    One of Trump's major campaign promises was a new plan to be produced by his generals within 30 days of taking office, but that never happened. These are the kinds of promises that would be easy to keep since it's not like the opposition can block him.

    The danger is that he can get a reputation for making policy off the cuff and not taking it seriously. This is one of those times when he should learn that his credibility is at stake.
