Trump tells Louisville rally
GOP health bill is chance to
end ´ObamaCare catastrophe´

Fox News, by Samuel Chamberlain

Original Article

Posted By:Lalo, 3/20/2017 11:54:40 PM

President Trump again went outside Washington to whip up support for House Republicans´ health care bill Monday, telling a rally in Louisville, Ky. that the legislation "is our chance to end ObamaCare and the ObamaCare catastrophe." "This is our long-awaited chance to finally get rid of Obamacare." Trump told the crowd at the city´s Freedom Hall. "It´s a long-awaited chance. We´re going to do it." In a speech peppered with shout-outs to Kentucky´s congressional delegation — "Hey, Mitch," Trump asked Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell at one point, "we gonna

But it´s not the last chance. Only fools rush in. If Ryan and Mitch are for it then I´m against it. Repeal In Name Only, Ocarelight, I´m not buying it until I hear it´s not The Affordable Care Act Part Deux. When Mark Levin is happy with it, I´m happy with it. Until then, no way.

I am happy with it and hope it passes. Then comes part 2 which is the executive branch changes that can be made to regulations now in force and then we vote for part 3 which is about opening up insurance across state line, allowing more associations to provide insurance, and limit tort recoveries.

I hear not one Republican saying they must have insurance purchase available across state lines. They talk about general free market choice but no specifics. I hear nothing about tort reform. Their donors do NOT want the unfettered competition that would cause needed change.

When all our elected representatives have to be insured under the same set of rules then I will be happy with it.

I guess he heard from Big Pharma and the trial lawyers. I.E., competition brings down prices, and tort reform spells bye-bye jackpot.

Tillerson, top diplomats hold urgent
meeting on Syria crisis

LUCCA, Italy — With fresh urgency but scant solutions, U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and top foreign diplomats held an urgent meeting Tuesday to strategize on a way forward to end the protracted civil war in Syria. A meeting of the "likeminded" countries was hastily arranged on the sidelines of a Group of 7 industrialized economies in Italy, days after the U.S. for the first time launched airstrikes against Syrian President Bashar Assad´s forces. It came hours before Tillerson was to make a tense trip to Moscow to press Russia´s leaders to finally abandon their support for Assad. Though

An Indispensable Nation After All

We start to see again why Madeleine Albright, when she was Secretary of State, called America “the indispensable nation.” It was because back then, and before — a long time before; say, from 1941 forward — we were just that: indispensable in terms of power and intentions of the generally beneficent sort. How indispensable we have permitted ourselves to remain is a matter open to animated discussion. On the other hand, where’s the competition? Know any other country these days with comparable power and a sense of, at the very least, residual decency? The questions hit home in these nervous days

WASHINGTON -- It didn´t take long for the viral video of a United Airlines passenger being forcibly dragged off an overbooked plane to make it to Capitol Hill. D.C. Delegate Eleanor Holmes Norton (D), a member of the House Transportation and Infrastructure Subcommittee on Aviation, said she´s going to formally ask Bill Shuster (R-Pa.), chairman of the Transportation Committee, and Aviation Subcommittee Chairman Frank LoBiondo (R-N.J.) to convene a hearing "to examine this and other incidents on flights.” “I deplore the violent removal of a passenger from a United Airlines flight this weekend," Norton said in a statement today.

Did you tune into tonight’s O’Reilly Factor on Fox News? Maybe you did. A lot of people have in the wake of all the sexual harassment allegations and reports that he and Fox settled with the women for big money. If you did, you saw that Bill O’Reilly and Brit Hume take aim at CNN’s Brooke Baldwin for speaking to a Syrian refugee a few times last week. Like other reporters, she was interested in finding out how people are perceiving the contrast between Donald Trump‘s refusal to allow refugees into America and his choice to send missiles to Syria

President Trump’s national security adviser on Sunday signaled a shift in the administration’s stance toward Syria, which now includes regime change, as Russia and Iran recommit to supporting Syrian President Bashar Assad after the U.S. strike early Friday on a Syrian air base that is believed to have launched a chemical attack on civilians last week. National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster said the Trump administration has two goals in Syria: defeating the Islamic State group and removing Mr. Assad from power. However, he added that Mr. Trump is seeking a global response that would include U.S. allies as well as Russia

North Korea warns of ‘war’ in

North Korea has vowed to defend itself using a “powerful force of arms” — should the US keep sending ships toward the Korean Peninsula, reports say. The Hermit Kingdom’s foreign ministry warned early Tuesday local time that it was ready for “war” in the event of further military moves like the one seen Sunday, when a US Navy strike group was sent to the region as a show of force against the communist nation. North Korean officials, who were quoted by state news agency KCNA, said the act displayed “reckless moves for invading” and was ultimately proof that tensions between

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. — After wrapping up a dinner of steak, potatoes, sole fish and gelato, President Donald Trump delivered a message to Chinese President Xi Jinping: The United States was unleashing 59 missiles into a Syrian airbase. Thursday was a split-screen of polished pageantry in public and frantic moves behind closed doors as the United States unleashed air missiles on Syria and the president strutted about his resort, enjoying the glow of cameras and the prestige of having China´s president to his crown jewel while also making what appeared his most consequential decision as president.

President Trump basked in the glow Saturday of a week so successful that it even won praise from aides to former President ­Barack Obama. Trump had plenty of success to reflect upon as he donned a white polo shirt and red cap to enjoy five hours at his Trump International Golf Club in West Palm Beach, Fla. He had had a successful two-day meeting with Chinese President Xi Jinping. The Senate voted Friday to approve his first Supreme Court nominee. And he had punished Syrian strongman Bashar al-Assad for the cruel use of sarin gas against his own people by ordering a

President Trump launched the first major military strike of his presidency after heavy consultation with his national security adviser, H.R. McMaster. The cruise missile attack on Syria capped off a week in which McMaster appeared to consolidate his power by ousting chief White House counselor Stephen Bannon from the National Security Council, though the balance of power inside the Trump administration remains fluid. The Army lieutenant general showed a steady hand turning Trump´s rhetoric Syria into action, something the president’s team has struggled to accomplish on other fronts. McMaster appeared to run a professional decision-making process, drawing praise even

A U.S. Navy strike group will be moving toward the western Pacific Ocean near the Korean peninsula, a U.S. official told Reuters on Saturday. The moves comes as concerns grow about North Korea´s advancing weapons program. Earlier this month North Korea tested a liquid-fueled Scud missile which only traveled a fraction of its range. The Carl Vinson strike group, which includes an aircraft carrier, will make its way from Singapore toward the Korean peninsula, according to the official, who spoke on condition of anonymity

Top White House aides Steve Bannon and Jared Kushner met and agreed to "bury the hatchet" over their differences, a senior administration official said on Saturday, in a bid to stop infighting that has distracted from President Donald Trump´s message. Bannon, Trump´s chief strategist, and Kushner, an influential adviser and Trump´s son-in-law, met on Friday at the request of White House chief of staff Reince Priebus who told them that if they have any policy differences, they should air them internally, the official said.

United CEO Oscar Munoz doubled down in a letter to employees on Monday evening, claiming that employees "followed established procedures" when removing a passenger from a plane because it was overbooked, and calling the passenger "disruptive and belligerent." United had to ask several passengers who had already boarded a flight from Chicago to Louisville on Sunday evening to leave, as the airline had sold too many tickets. One man refused to leave, and United called airport officials, who forcibly removed him from the plane. Video circulated of the incident earlier in the day, showing the man being dragged from the plane

President Donald Trump visited one of his own golf courses for the 16th time in his brief presidency - far outpacing his predecessor, who he repeatedly criticized for hitting the links. The 45th president was spotted at his Trump International Golf Course in West Palm Beach, Florida, for the second day in a row on Sunday after he ordered airstrikes on a Syrian air base on Thursday night during the Chinese President´s visit to Mar-a-Lago. Trump repeatedly criticized former President Barack Obama for golfing - but the 44th president didn´t play his first round until April 26, 2009 - nearly 100 days

This is the moment a screaming man was knocked out and forcibly dragged off an overbooked United flight by cops while fellow passengers yelled in distress on Sunday night. Three officers were filmed yanking the man from his seat in Chicago, bashing his head against an arm rest and dragging the seemingly unconscious man down the aisle as he bled from the mouth. The man - who claimed to be a doctor and said he needed to see patients the next morning - was one of four randomly selected by United to leave the 5.40pm flight from O´Hare to Louisville.

A United Airlines passenger didn’t get to “fly the friendly skies” when he was forcibly ejected from his overbooked flight, according to reports. The unidentified man was dragged off kicking and screaming when he refused to give up his seat — and was recorded by passengers outraged at his treatment. The man, who some social media users said is a doctor, was yanked from his seat at Chicago’s O’Hare Airport before the flight to Louisville, Ky. A short video posted by Audra Bridges at 7:30 p.m. Sunday shows uniformed security personnel pulling the screaming man in front of horrified passengers.

Sen.

More armed forces, 5,000 or 6,000, would attract more regional fighters to destroy ISIL. “You need a safe haven quickly, so people can regroup inside of Syria.

The United Airlines passenger who was hauled off an overbooked plane is a poker-playing doctor from Kentucky with a sordid past. Dr. David Dao, 69, who was captured in a now viral video being forcibly dragged off the Louisville, Ky-bound flight at Chicago O’Hare Airport on Sunday, was working as a doctor specializing in pulmonary disease in Elizabethtown when he was convicted of trading prescription drugs for sex favors. According to documents filed with the Kentucky Board of Medical Licensure, Dao was arrested in 2003 on the drug-related offenses following an undercover investigation.

Not surprisingly, Yearwood has been extremely successful as a male competing against females. According to the Hartford Courant, “Andraya’s times in the 100 and the 200 are fast.

ALBANY, N.Y. -- There´s a big string attached to New York´s free middle-class college tuition initiative: Students must stay in the state after graduation or else pay back the benefit. Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo said Monday that the requirement was added to protect the state´s investment in a student´s education by ensuring they don´t take advantage of free tuition and then leave New York. The rule wasn´t a part of Cuomo´s free college tuition proposal when he unveiled it in January but was inserted during final negotiations with lawmakers over the state budget, which was approved Sunday.

One of the officers who dragged a passenger off a United Airlines flight did not follow standard operating procedures and has been placed on leave, according to the Chicago Aviation Department. It was not immediately clear which of the three men seen in a viral video taken by another passenger was placed on leave. The department, which did not name the officer, said it did not condone the aviation security officers’ actions Sunday night. Meanwhile, the CEO of United Airlines’ parent company said the airline is conducting its own probe of the incident.

A Texas law that requires voters to show identification before casting ballots was enacted with the intent to discriminate against black and Hispanic voters, a U.S. federal judge ruled on Monday. The decision by U.S. District Judge Nelva Gonzales Ramos came after an appeals court last year said the 2011 law had an outsized impact on minority voters. The court sent the case back to Ramos to determine if lawmakers intentionally wrote the legislation to be discriminatory. Ramos said in a 10-page decision that evidence "establishes that a discriminatory purpose was at least one of the substantial or motivating factors

Supply and Demand: After forcing a paying customer off a flight to make room for an employee, United Airlines is catching hell, and rightly so. But what´s really disturbing is that no one at United understood the most basic principle of free market economics. The story goes like this. United overbooked a flight from Chicago to Louisville, Ky., on Sunday night. That´s hardly unusual. But in this case, United wanted to make room for four employees who needed to be in Louisville the next day, and the next flight to Louisville wasn´t until Monday afternoon. According to news accounts, United offered passengers
