GOP bill to block-grant major
parts of the ACA unveiled

Washington Post, by David Weigel and Amy Goldstein

Original Article

Posted By:earlybird, 9/13/2017 4:42:08 PM

With just 17 days left for Republicans to repeal the Affordable Care Act on a party-line vote, a quartet of GOP senators on Wednesday rolled out a plan to devolve federal health care spending into state-by-state block grants — legislation that South Carolina Sen. Lindsey O. Graham described as conservatives’ last shot at reform. “It should have been our first bill to repeal and replace Obamacare, but it is now our last,” Graham said at a morning news conference. “To those in the Republican Party who feel like we have not fought as hard as we could, you’re right.” The Graham-Cassidy-Heller-Johnson bill,

Using his Executive powers, President Trump can order ALL congressmen/women to be covered under obamacare, just as all of us peons are. Right?

Republicans unveil harder-line
fix for DACA
The Hill, by Melanie Zanona    Original Article
Posted By: earlybird- 1/10/2018 6:07:44     Post Reply
A group of House Republicans unveiled their own solution to an Obama-era immigration program on Wednesday as questions persist over how congressional leadership and the White House will work out a deal on the issue. The bill, backed by the chairmen of the House Judiciary and Homeland Security committees, would call for more aggressive enforcement measures in exchange for addressing the thousands of young undocumented immigrants whose fate has been in limbo for months. Backers of the bill are hoping to rally GOP support in the coming days, seizing on the concerns of their House colleagues that they could find

This outline is intended to clear up some confusion and answer common questions about the 2016 DOJ and FBI Counterintelligence Operation against candidate Trump. ie. “The Trump Operation”. Deep Background #1 HERE – Deep Background #2 HERE (Snip)s we have explained there were no Title III wiretap warrants against the Trump campaign. Title III warrants are the historic reference to the DOJ or FBI wiretapping a suspect to gather information. Former DNI James Clapper has denied there were any Title III wiretap warrants issued. James Clapper is correct. *Here’s where the verbiage used by media doesn’t match with what was occurring. The

DACA injunction: What a federal
judge’s ruling means for ‘dreamers’
Washington Post, by Maria Sacchetti    Original Article
Posted By: earlybird- 1/10/2018 12:07:28     Post Reply
A federal judge’s decision to block the Trump administration’s plans to phase out protections for undocumented “dreamers” brought sharp backlash Wednesday from the White House, which called the injunction “outrageous.” The order issued late Tuesday by U.S. District Judge William Alsup says safeguards against deportation must remain in place for the nearly 690,000 immigrants in the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program while a legal challenge to ending the program proceeds. It remained unclear Wednesday when the DACA recipients, who were brought to this country illegally as children and are also known as “dreamers,” could resume applying for renewals

A Political Battle Over Dossiers,
FISA Warrants and Surveillance,

There is a lot of news amid national headlines but there is only one story. Unfortunately, that story is a complex multidimensional matrix of politics, law enforcement corruption, the DC swamp, and vested interests attempting to hide and manipulate facts, ie. The Russian Election/Collusion Story. What I am going to introduce today is how the 2016 FISA-702(16)(17) data and surveillance activity issues; and the 2016 FISA Court applications for surveillance and search warrants; and the Christopher Steele (Fusion GPS) Russian Dossier; and the individual actions by DOJ, FBI and IC officials; all connect within the targeted political weaponization of government.As many

Fusion GPS Testimony Shows FBI

Democrat Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) may have tried to discredit Republican scrutiny of Fusion GPS and its dossier’s role in the FBI investigation into the Trump campaign, but could have ended up justifying it instead. (Snip) Trump critics immediately latched onto Simpson’s testimony that the FBI believed the dossier was credible because they had “other intelligence about this matter from an internal Trump campaign source.” “They believed Chris’s information might be credible because they had other intelligence that indicated the same thing and one of those pieces of intelligence was a human source from inside the Trump organization,” Simpson told the investigators. Simpson said

President Trump Meets With Democrats
and Republicans To Discuss DACA

Earlier today President Trump held a meeting today with Democrat and Republican Senators surrounding one of the most controversial issues in the current body politic. The DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) and immigration reform, to include a border wall and an end of chain-migration policy, is a hot button issue on both sides of the political aisle. President Trump surprised the entire MSM by allowing the media to stay in the meeting for an hour and hear the arguments/positions from all participants at the meeting. Extreme transparency.

Trump’s TV-Show Exposes Democrat
Weakness, GOP Unity, in Amnesty Fight
Breitbart Big Government, by Neil Munro    Original Article
Posted By: earlybird- 1/10/2018 10:57:22     Post Reply
President Donald Trump’s riveting spectacle of televised bipartisanship exposed the Democrats’ political weakness in the amnesty debate — and also revealed remarkable GOP unity on the goal of ending the nation’s chain-migration system. Time after time, Democrats pleaded for a quick passage of unpopular ‘dreamer’ amnesty while also promising a later-meaning-never debate over popular immigration reforms, such as the elimination of the visa-lottery and the chain-migration system, which doubles the annual inflow of legal immigrants. Time after time, in contrast, GOP leaders wrapped themselves in sympathy for the 670,000 DACA illegals while insisting that Congress must implement Trump’s popular policies by ending

Report: 485 Scientific Papers Published

‘Consensus’ on Climate Change
Breitbart Big Government, by Thomas D. Williams, PH.D.    Original Article
Posted By: earlybird- 1/10/2018 10:53:37     Post Reply
A broad survey of climate change literature for 2017 reveals that the alleged “consensus” behind the dangers of anthropogenic global warming is not nearly as settled among climate scientists as people imagine. Author Kenneth Richard found that during the course of the year 2017, at least 485 scientific papers were published that in some way questioned the supposed consensus regarding the perils of human CO2 emissions or the efficacy of climate models to predict the future. According to Richard’s analysis, the 485 new papers underscore the “significant limitations and uncertainties inherent in our understanding of climate and climate changes,” which in turn

EILAT, Israel — The founders of the controversial opposition research firm Fusion GPS admitted that they helped the researcher hired to compile the infamous, largely discredited 35-page dossier on President Donald Trump to share the document with Sen. John McCain. The goal of providing the dossier to McCain, the Fusion GPS founders explained, was to pass the information contained in the questionable document to the U.S. intelligence community under the Obama administration. The disclosure raises questions about whether McCain knew that the information he delivered to the intelligence community was actually an opposition document reportedly funded by the Hillary Clinton

With the New Year, the media revisited the important events of last year. Whenever a dig could be dug into President Trump, it was dug with the enthusiasm of a groundhog bent on visiting China. None of his wins received much attention in these mainstream media reviews, so let us also ignore them for now and instead, consider a few of the Great Social Justice Warriors (SJWs) of 2017… The Tattooed Hillary Cultist Pete Davidson, one of the lesser lights on “Saturday Night Live,” was so eager to pay homage to the “badass” Hillary Clinton that he had her face tattooed

Anne Applebaum laments the death of Wilsonian world order, in her latest column for the Washington Post. Let us for a moment skip over the fact that the notion we ever had a Wilsonian order is debatable. It is also, arguably, impossible as an aspiration, as any international relations theorist worth his salt would tell you. History is cyclical, with intense “Great Power” rivalries, sprinkled with short-lived Hegemonic peace. The post-Cold War era was one such peaceful era. But it is over. Applebaum, however, remains undeterred. Liberal ideologue that she is, she claims that Trump single handedly destroyed the Wilsonian order.

MIAMI — Lured by the charm of little Havana or the glamour of South Beach, some 15 million tourists visit Miami every year. But for a growing number of Russian women, the draw isn´t sunny beaches or pulsing nightclubs. It´s U.S. citizenship for their newborn children. In Moscow, it´s a status symbol to have a Miami-born baby, and social media is full of Russian women boasting of their little americantsy.

The first community organizer to become president has managed to anger community groups so much with his planned personal monument, aka “presidential center,” that part of the plan was just scrapped. (snip) The original plan would have grabbed a treasured part of Chicago’s park system, the Midway (site of Chicago’s World’s Fair) for a two-story garage. The group Save the Midway sprang up to protect the historic public park land from a private developer (the Obama Foundation) appropriating the land for a private purpose (the Obama Center will not be part of the National Archives System) The embarrassment is palpable:

There is music that is clever, inventive and deliberate, full of the arched eyebrows of ingenuity and the sly smile of skill. And then there is music that unchills your heart, music that makes a direct connection with your hopes, dreams, joys, and fears. Reach my heart, then tell me how brilliant you are. This is why, I am quite certain, I prefer Elliot Smith to Paul Simon, Fred Neil to Duncan Sheik, Charles Ives to Leonard Bernstein, the Durutti Column to Dire Straits; these artists created sound and music out of those moments just before tears happen, each of these artists access

Washington state’s Democratic Governor Jay Inslee warned there was “just 59 days” to save future generations from “an endless cycle of crop-killing droughts one year, and rivers spilling their banks the next.” Inslee went on a lengthy Twitter rant in efforts to convince the state legislature to pass legislation to tax carbon dioxide emissions. Washington residents voted down Inslee’s last carbon tax plan by a wide margin in 2016. (Tweet) The state legislature’s session ends in 59 days, on March 8. Democrats have a slim majority in both state legislative chambers. Inslee wants lawmakers to pass a tax on carbon

As many people across the country recognized Law Enforcement Appreciation Day Tuesday, convicted spy Chelsea Manning took to Twitter to blast the men and women in blue. “F–k the police,” Manning tweeted out on Tuesday, followed by “#DisarmThePolice #WeGotThis.” Manning doubled down on her position, sending out a series of tweets with seemingly unsourced stats. Manning, who was known as Bradley Manning before transitioning in prison after her arrest in 2010, was convicted in 2013 of 20 counts, including Espionage Act violations, theft and computer fraud.

You´ve heard of Benghazi and Uranium One. But more than a year after Hillary Clinton’s resounding loss to President Trump, she must now grapple with a new scandal: An ongoing Federal Election Commission investigation into an alleged $84 million money laundering scheme orchestrated by the Hillary Victory Fund — the $500 million joint fundraising committee between the Clinton campaign, the Democratic National Committee, and Democratic state parties. Based on former DNC Chairwoman Donna Brazile’s public comments, a memo by former Clinton campaign manager Robbie Mook, and months of reviewing FEC reports, the Committee to Defend the President has filed an FEC

A lawyer for the founder of Fusion GPS, the research firm behind a controversial dossier on Donald Trump, told Senate investigators that “somebody’s already been killed” after it was published, according to a transcript of the testimony released on Tuesday. During a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing in August 2017, Glenn Simpson was questioned about whether he tried to “assess the credibility” of sources behind information uncovered by Christopher Steele, a former British intelligence agent who compiled the dossier. “Yes, but I’m not going to get into sourcing information,” Simpson said.

Anti-Trump conservative Bill Kristol said Tuesday on MSNBC that it will be “amusing” if Trump voters get “betrayed” by the president on immigration. Washington Post writer Eugene Robinson, appearing on MSNBC’s “MTP Daily,” said, “What I’m seeing from immigration hardliners on Twitter is the line that, ‘the president who we elected to give us a wall and no amnesty, is going to give us amnesty and no wall.’ So that’s sort of the attack on…” Kristol said, “If you put your faith in demagogues–you’re going to be disappointed.” He added, “He didn’t believe any of it.

Like millions of people around the world, I was reassured to learn that Donald Trump is a "Very Stable Genius." You see, if he weren’t — if he were instead an erratic, vindictive, uninformed, lazy, would-be tyrant — we might be in real trouble. Let’s be honest: This great nation has often been led by mediocre men, some of whom had unpleasant personalities. But they generally haven’t done too much damage, for two reasons. First, second-rate presidents have often been surrounded by first-rate public servants. Look, for example, at a list of Treasury secretaries since the nation’s founding; while not everyone who

The Environmental Protection Agency, seen by President Trump as a bloated bureaucratic whale, is on schedule to fulfill his promise to reduce its staff nearly in half by the end of his first term mostly through retirements, not cuts, according to officials. The EPA Tuesday provided to Secrets its first year staff results which show that the agency is below levels not seen since former President Reagan’s administration. And if just those slated to retire by early 2021 leave, Administrator Scott Pruitt and his team will have reduced a staff of nearly 15,000, to below 8,000, or a reduction of 47
