How many times have I said it? "Impeach Trump" is a trap. The Democrats are being set-up! If they fall for it, they will prove themselves the stupidest twits ever. Ryan will say: "if you democrats lead the charge and do the heavy lifting, we'll supply JUST enough GOP defectors to get the bill of impeachment passed, agreed?"

Imbeciles. In a shot, the goppers will get rid of their embarrassment, get Pence (OMG far worse than Trump), who will appoint Ryan VP... and all of Trump's supporters will be enraged to a war footing against democrats. The disaster that is looming for the GOP, in 2018, will turn into their greatest victory.

The dems must say: "No way. Trump is YOUR problem. Get the entire GOP House to vote impeachment and (maybe) we might provide a few votes."

Better yet, face it - Trump is more an embarrassment than a deadly danger. Now, with the entire civil service, Intelligence Community and Officer Corps alerted to the craziness, he is in many ways already neutralized. The Dems and the sane Republicans (the few, the not-so-brave?) should concentrate on some pieces of neutralizing legislation.

1) Give the Joint Chiefs authority -- if unanimous -- to passively delay execution of presidential orders to perform acts of violence or combat for up to a week, giving them time enough to put their misgivings before a select congressional committee. This will only diminish Commander in Chief authority in extremely dubious conditions.

2) Put half of all presidential contingency and operating funds out of reach, unless the president agrees to give control over his appointments calendar, one afternoon a week, to the other party. I've proposed this before. Trump will be different if he hears other voices from outside his handlers' carefully erected bubble! (Recall how he was in love with Obama for a week, after meeting him, in the White House?) This one thing could draw him far enough into the light so that he at least won't be an existential danger...

... and did I remind you to say the words "President Pence" over and over again, letting your imagination go wild? That fellow ACTIVELY prays for armageddon! He will fill the White house with dominionists (look it up.) Please. Trump chose him as impeachment insurance and you had better believe he knew what he was doing.

3) Pass funding for a Fact Checking Institute. Bipartisan. You will get enough Republican defectors to pass this one thing. Do it.

Global Ransomware Attack

[Distributed at my work]

A fast-moving ransomware attack is currently taking place globally. Ransomware is a type of virus that locks files on a computer and demands a ransom be paid to unlock them.

Thankfully, we have had no reports of this ransomware at MCW. We have security tools in place, such as Proofpoint, to help stop this type of attack. We are also closely monitoring the situation.

However, even with proper security tools in place, you must stay vigilant when managing your email. Some important security reminders are:

1. Do not open email attachments that you are not expecting or are from unknown senders. Filenames can be faked. For example, what appears to be a picture file can actually be malware that will install on your computer.
2. Never give away your personal information. You should never send your username and password through email. This is also true of your Social Security number, bank account information, or credit card information.
3. Be wary of links in emails. Although the link may appear legitimate, clicking a link in an email could introduce a virus, result in lost data, or lead to identity theft. When in doubt, go directly to the website rather than clicking or copy-and-pasting the link.
