Regarding Trump's physical next month.

Trump is scheduled for a physical in January at Walter Reed. In discussing this with a friend of mine, she wonders what if they find signs of dementia, or some other disease, will they report it? Do HIPPA laws apply to the President?

Another DUER suggested that I post this in GD for exposure.

Hookworm, a disease of extreme poverty, is thriving in the US south. Why?

Children playing feet away from open pools of raw sewage; drinking water pumped beside cracked pipes of untreated waste; human faeces flushed back into kitchen sinks and bathtubs whenever the rains come; people testing positive for hookworm, an intestinal parasite that thrives on extreme poverty.

These are the findings of a new study into endemic tropical diseases, not in places usually associated with them in the developing world of sub-Saharan Africa and Asia, but in a corner of the richest nation on earth: Alabama.

It's hard to believe that these conditions exist in a country as rich as the US.

It's hard to keep track of all that's happened in the last year as this tweet reminds us.

Report: Trump never held a high-level meeting on Russian interference

President Trump thinks conceding that Russia interfered in the 2016 election "would give ammunition to his critics," and becomes agitated by the mere mention of the issue by his aides, according to a Washington Post report.

Why it matters: Per WaPo, Trump "has never convened a Cabinet-level meeting on Russian interference or what to do about it," and his aides think he'd treat it as "an affront" if they were to even raise the matter. A former Russia adviser to Presidents George H.W. Bush and Bill Clinton told the Post: "Putin has to believe this was the most successful intelligence operation in the history of Russian or Soviet intelligence."

I think we can safely assume that the 2018 election will be interfered with. Nothing seems to have been done to prevent or recognize this problem.

The coward who ran down Heather Heyer charged with 1st degree murder.

First-degree murder charge for driver accused of plowing into Charlottesville crowd, killing Heather Heyer

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. —A judge here concluded Thursday that there is enough evidence to pursue a first-degree murder charge against the self-professed neo-Nazi accused of plowing his car into a crowd in August, killing one woman.

James Alex Fields Jr., 20, has been jailed in Charlottesville since his arrest during a rally of white supremacists on Aug. 12. Authorities say he rammed his car into another vehicle on purpose on a crowded street, killing counterprotester Heather D. Heyer 32, and injuring 35 other people.

The incident — captured on video and seen worldwide — occurred amid clashes involving hundreds of white supremacists and counterprotesters at a gathering billed by organizers as a “Unite the Right” rally, in the home town of the University of Virginia.

Blake Farenthold is calling it quits.

BREAKING Yes! Jammie Boy Gives Up!
December 14, 2017 By: Juanita Jean Herownself
Blake Farenthold is calling it quits.

In all honesty, I know he was just trying to avoid an investigation, but you have to hand him this – it’s the first decent thing he’s ever done in his life.

I have a friend, La Lisa Hernandez, in Corpus, Blake’s district, who replied to a Facebook comment of mine …

I’m seriously considering a conversion to Judaism!! First day of Hanukkah… Moore loses!! Second day… Omarosa gets dragged from the White House!! Third day… Blake’s OUT!!!

She makes a good point.
