Larry Flynt Offers $10 Million for 'Smoking Gun' That Would Impeach Trump. "I do not expect any of Trump's billionaire cronies to rat him out, but I am confident that there are many people in the know for whom $10 million is a lot of money," Flynt writes. "Make no mistake, I fully intend to pay the entire sum. Sure, I could use that $10 million to buy luxuries or further my business, but what good would that do me in a world devastated by the most powerful moron in history?" At vice.com

Gregg Popovich Goes Full Throttle On 'Soulless Coward' Donald Trump. We have a pathological liar in the White House, unfit intellectually, emotionally, and psychologically to hold this office, and the whole world knows it. At thenation.com

Divided Democratic Party Debates Its Future as 2020 Looms. On the surface, the Democratic Party has been united and energized by its shared disgust for Trump. But dig an inch deeper and it's clear that the party is divided, split on issues including free trade, health care, foreign affairs and Wall Street. They even disagree over the political wisdom of doing deals with Trump. Full article at time.com.

Trump Tax Plan Benefits Wealthy, Including Trump. In broad brush strokes, they're doing nothing for the bottom 35 percent, they're doing very little and possibly raising taxes on the middle class, and they've specified tax cuts for the wealthy. nytimes.com

In her new book What Happened? Hillary Clinton goes after Bernie Sanders with a vengeance. She claims that: Bernie is a snake oil salesman who makes preposterous promises; That he is partly responsible for Trump's "Crooked Hillary" mantra; and That he is not a real Democrat and doesn't really care about the party's success. So much for party unity in a time of peril. More here

The dotard wears everyone out. As the NYT points out he averages five lies a day. The attached editorial brings to mind some, but not nearly all of the terrible things Chump ha done. I wanted to share this piece as a frame of reference. More to follow.At nytimes.com. Richard Lenter

Where are the Democrats on health care? At a Hillary Clinton campaign rally in Flint in early October 2016, Bill Clinton stated the following regarding Obamacare: "You've got this crazy system where all of a sudden 25 million more people have health care and then the people who are out there busting it, sometimes 60 hours a week, wind up with their premiums doubled and their coverage cut in half. It's the craziest thing in the world." Nevertheless, Democratic Sens. Debbie Stabenow and Gary Peters have been quick to criticize Republicans for attempting to repeal and replace Obamacare. However, neither Stabenow nor Peters, both of whom voted to pass Obamacare, have offered their own plan to fix the imploding Obamacare. I suggest Michigan's Democratic representatives stop their obstructionist behavior and immediately offer positive solutions to the health care crisis caused by Obamacare in its present form.
