Trump, Liar-in-Chief. This dude lies blatantly and knowingly twice a day and three times on Sunday.

Paul Cook is with Trump. The Republicans still supporting Trump and Cook’s lies have no character or integrity.

Cook’s letter in the Hi-Desert Star is just plain feel-good malarkey and unsupported predictions. However, the following are Trump, Cook and Republican real policies:

The Joshua Tree National Park entry fees may be increased to levels that keeps the common person out. How does increasing the fees produce more local revenue?

Borrowing interest rates were increased several times in 2017. How does that produce more loans or activity?

Much of the student loan activity was limited or eliminated. How does that assist the poor or how does it create more intelligent people? It doesn’t because the Republicans believe that the dumber the population, the better.

The hypocrite local Republicans no longer have to pay into the government health care. Now they will take their families into the local ER and suck up from the taxpayers’ entitlements that they rail about. Will the local hospital need to close?

Gas at AM/PM on Jan. 20, 2017, was $2.56. Now it is $3.05. California policies caused 12 cents, Republicans caused the rest. Yes, the purity party can afford the price increase, but the poor people can’t. Oh I get it, why are they driving?

Cook won’t hold any local meetings, but he sure puts out a bunch of written malarkey predictions. You are a tough Marine, why can’t you meet your constituents head on?

Social Security Disability: Did you see the Republicans gave a 2 percent raise and they took it right back in their deduction fees? Don’t believe me, look at your statement. Thank you, may I have another.

Yes, Cook and local Republican supporters are tied with the racist-in-chief.

    Chad Mayes and 7 republicans sold out their constituents, their caucus and their supporters by supporting Governor Brown's cap and trade tax increases for gas and utility bills. Gas taxes increased about 60 cents a gallon and utility bills will rise 10-20% because of his support of the tax and spend liberal Democrats. I guess some really enjoy paying more in taxes and receive even less in return. It would be nice to have Democrats to stand up to their political leadership and stop the madness taking in Sacramento. This must be the "top down" rule most voters enjoy since they keep electing them. Good try though.

    Both the letter and the first comment display two greatly partisan positions that lack consideration of complex alliances that make our political discourse so venomous. There is little doubt that both political parties rule from the top down. It would be better for all Americans if representatives like Paul Cook would stand up to their political leadership just as it would be nice to see Democrats push back on their leadership. We, have to better examine where we get our information and who is providing the financial backing for information providers. We can look right here in our California Assembly District for an example of bucking the party bosses. Chad Mayes was castigated for taking a pragmatic position that really exemplied compromise. That was completely unacceptable to his party's "bosses" and he has been condemned for considering all arguments. I would rather see Chad Mayes in Congress because he has demonstrated a willingness to lead rather than simply follow the leader as is Paul Cook's way.

    For someone who claims to be concerned about lies the claim "Gas at AM/PM on Jan. 20, 2017, was $2.56. Now it is $3.05. California policies caused 12 cents, Republicans caused the rest. Yes, the purity party can afford the price increase, but the poor people can’t. Oh I get it, why are they driving?" has got to be the most laughable. I guess those few awful Republicans we have representing us in Sacramento are running the show and are to blame for our rising gas prices. They claim is not the taxes and the carbon tax scams Democrats keeps shoving down our throats. I would not know about the rising fees imposed on SSDI checks because I have never got one but I could certainly know about the rising popularity, fraud, and cost that keeps that entitlement afloat by stealing money from Social Security. This letter reeks of the hypocrisy, propaganda, and lies perpetrated by those who believe we are so ignorant we can not figure out what is actually going on. Good luck in disseminating this propaganda on those who do not know better.
