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?

The Sound of Statesmanship
American Greatness, by Jay Whig    Original Article
Posted By: earlybird- 9/21/2017 3:19:27     Post Reply
The most nationalist speech given by an American to an international audience was—and remains—John F. Kennedy’s “Ich Bin Ein Berliner” speech. In it, Kennedy threatened the Soviet Union, an enemy of the United States. The Soviet Union menaced the United States with a massive arsenal of thermonuclear weapons. (Snip) Less than two decades after Germany laid waste to European Russia, Kennedy had uttered the unthinkable. He threatened Russia with a unified Germany. The effect was immediate. The German crowd’s wild reaction unsettled some observers. That was the sound of statesmanship.

Seems odd, doesn´t it, that a cable entertainment network devoted to bringing down the presidency of Donald Trump would suddenly -- out of nowhere -- report "Exclusive: US government wiretapped former Trump campaign chairman," but there it is. As you will see, this story was given to CNN for a nefarious purpose. Note what was said and what was not said: (Snip) What was said: Some US investigators wiretapped. Some communications "sparked concern" Mueller "has been provided" A FISA was issued in 2014 What was not said: Who got the FISA Why Mueller got the information Whether they spied on Trump

BuzzFeed Hires Former CNN Reporter Who
Resigned After Writing Unverified Story
Washington Free Beacon, by Alex Griswold    Original Article
Posted By: earlybird- 9/21/2017 7:42:48     Post Reply
BuzzFeed announced Monday it has hired a former CNN reporter who resigned after penning an unverified story, which the network was later forced to retract. In June, Thomas Frank wrote a story that alleged Congress was investigating President Donald Trump aide Anthony Scaramucci´s ties to a Russian investment fund, citing an anonymous source. Scaramucci and his lawyers immediately disputed the story, and threatened to sue. CNN soon had to apologize and retract the article, realizing it had failed to fully vet the story. The New York Times later reported that Frank´s single source had begun to waver on the story

Authoritarianism, Crime, and Freedom

In January, I took up Donald Trump’s extraordinary promise to bring the crime and violence we know today to a quick end. I argued that this seemingly impossible vow can be fulfilled, but only by dramatically increasing the speed and certainty with which murderers are put to death. My piece had no impact at National Review Online, where the only published response dismissed it as an “authoritarian screed.” It’s as if NRO had embraced the old liberal saw, “A high crime rate is the price we pay for living in a free society.” National Review used to have a better

Lindsey Graham, a longtime Establishment fixture, and Bill Cassidy, senator from Louisiana, (who is also a former physician) revealed a surprising effort over the weekend to revisit getting rid of the failed and costly Obamacare boondoggle that has decimated American healthcare while making the insurance and drug companies even more wealthy than they already were. (Snip)Cassidy and Graham were said to be both startled at the levels of voter animosity they were receiving in their (southern) states for the lack of support being given by Congress to the Trump agenda. They soon discovered their concerns were shared as other

Via Reddit_The Donald, the headline of the day: UN globalists are on suicide watch after President Trump´s speech If you are wondering why Hillary´s speechwriters called us a basket of deplorables, now you know why. They fear President Trump. (Snip) Now the globalists -- the men without a country or a conscience -- are in a panic. Their Russian conspiracy is cracking. Their immoral espionage on Candidate Trump is showing. Their hold on Washington is slipping. President Trump today gave a great speech to the United Nations -- one that proves beyond a doubt that he is the leader of the free world. We live in a

Why Trump’s UN Speech
Was a Triumph

Donald Trump on Tuesday confirmed yet again why he is the most robust president since Ronald Reagan. Following up on his brilliant speeches before a joint session of Congress in February, his speech about combating Islamic terrorism before Arab leaders in Saudi Arabia, and his splendid defense of Western civilizational values in Warsaw a few months ago, Trump addressed the United Nations and articulated for the 150 delegates at that ostentatiously corrupt institution the signal lesson of successful international relations: that freedom within nations, and comity among them, is best served not by the effacement or attenuation of national sovereignty

MONTGOMERY, Alabama — Dr. Sebastian Gorka will campaign for Judge Roy Moore here in Montgomery, alongside 2008 GOP vice presidential nominee and former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin on Thursday evening. Breitbart News first reported that Palin was traveling here to campaign for Moore, and now Gorka confirmed to Breitbart News Tuesday morning that he is also hitting the trail in Alabama for Moore. “President Trump told me he is still committed to the original MAGA [Make America Great Again] agenda,” Gorka, a former deputy assistant to President Donald Trump, who has since left the administration, told Breitbart News on Tuesday morning.

Knowing that former Campaign Manager Paul Manafort was wiretapped by the Obama Administration via the FBI, James Comey, let’s take another look at Comey’s testimony. New York Representative Elise Stefanik begins her March 20th, 2017, questioning by asking director Comey what are the typical protocols, broad standards and procedures for notifying the Director of National Intelligence, the White House and senior congressional leadership (aka the intelligence Gang of Eight), when the FBI has opened a counter-intelligence investigation. The parseltongue response from Comey is a generalized reply

On Tuesday, addressing the United Nations for the first time as president, President Trump delivered a powerful message. On the peril, Trump was clear. He spared no ire in confronting the efforts of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un to acquire an intercontinental ballistic missile plus nuclear warhead capability. Trump warned that if the U.S. is "forced to defend itself or its allies, we will have no choice but to totally destroy North Korea." Referencing Kim specifically, Trump warned that "Rocket Man is on a suicide mission for him and his regime." Trump pledged to continue destroying the Islamic State and said America

How exactly did the Left romanticize the Lost Cause Confederacy, and by extension its secession and efforts to preserve slavery? To use a shopworn phrase, “It’s complicated.” Good Ol’ Rebels Well before the end of Jim Crow, post-war leftist Hollywood still largely continued its soft mythologies of the Confederate Lost Cause. Perhaps the cinematic romance arose because of the lucrative fumes of earlier Gone with the Wind fantasies, which themselves might’ve come from an understandable desire to play a part in “binding up the nation’s wounds.” In George Stevens’s mythic Shane (1953), the tragedy of the

Hillary Clinton compared herself to Revolutionary War hero Paul Revere on Tuesday, saying that she is “Paula Revere” sounding the alarm on Russian active measures during the 2016 presidential campaign. (Snip) In her interview, Clinton suggested that she has led the push to call out the Russian government and Russian president Vladimir Putin about their involvement in the U.S. election. “I am saying as clearly as I can — I feel like I’m a bit of a, you know, Paula Revere — I’m trying to sound the alarm about this,” Clinton said to a smattering of laughter and applause.

If you had plans for the weekend, a Christian numerologist says you won’t get to them because the world is about to end. David Meade, a self-proclaimed “researcher,” is predicting that a series of apocalyptic events will begin on Sept. 23 and, “a major part of the world will not be the same.” According to Meade, the mysterious rogue planet Nibiru, also known as Planet X, is on a collision course with Earth, which will bring world-ending tsunamis and earthquakes. The numerologist claims the dates of recent events like the Great American Solar Eclipse and Hurricane Harvey’s flooding of Texas were all marked in the Bible.

Special Counsel Robert Mueller´s team is reaching back more than a decade in its investigation of Paul Manafort, a sign of the pressure Mueller is placing on President Donald Trump´s former campaign chairman. The FBI´s warrant for a July search of Manafort´s Alexandria, Virginia, home said the investigation centered on possible crimes committed as far back as January 2006, according to a source briefed on the investigation. The broad time frame is the latest indication that Mueller´s team is going well beyond Russian meddling during the campaign as part of its investigation of Trump campaign associates. Manafort,

United Nations - The Latest on President Donald Trump and North Korea (all times local): 8:00 a.m. Former Secretary of State John Kerry says President Donald Trump´s United Nations speech may have put America in isolation and danger. Appearing on MSNBC´s "Morning Joe" show Wednesday, Kerry criticized Trump´s harsh rhetoric against North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. Kerry said, "You have to ask yourself: Is America safer because of ´rocket man?" He was referring to Trump´s characterization of Kim.

In Federalist No. 68, his pseudonymous essay on “The Mode of Electing the President,” Alexander Hamilton wrote that the Electoral College could shield the United States “from the desire in foreign powers to gain an improper ascendant in our councils.” (Snip) Hamilton and his colleagues never could have envisioned a year like 2016, when an enemy state—Russia—was able to manipulate America’s election process with stunning effectiveness. But it’s clear the national security rationale for the Electoral College is outdated and therefore it should be retired. Simply put, it enables foreign powers to more easily pierce the very shield Hamilton imagined

A new fifth grade teacher at Canopy Oaks Elementary is asking students to use gender-neutral pronouns in the classroom. Math and science teacher Chloe Bressack sent the request home in a letter to parents headlined "About Mx. Bressack." “... my pronouns are ´they, them, their´ instead of ´he, his, she, hers.´ I know it takes some practice for it to feel natural,” the letter reads, “but students catch on pretty quickly.” The letter also asks that students use “Mx.," (pronounced ´Mix´) when addressing the teacher rather than Mr. or Ms. The note alarmed some parents.

Democratic Gov. Jerry Brown of California compared President Donald Trump supporters to prehistoric cave dwellers Monday during a New York climate event. Brown, an outspoken Trump critic, issued an usually harsh derision of Trump supporters after dismissing the president’s rhetoric on climate change science and U.S. policy toward North Korea as “stupid and dangerous and silly.” “They’re both kind of very similar,” Brown said. “You should check out the derivation of ‘Trump-ite’ and ‘troglodyte,’ because they both refer to people who dwell in deep, dark caves.” Brown attended the climate event, which coincided with the U.N. meeting in New York,

Now Bono says “there’s a couple of reasons why we delayed Songs of Experience. One personal, one political.” “The world around us was certainly changing out of all recognition, we nearly lost the

Hillary Clinton said First Lady Melania Trump isn’t doing enough to tackle cyberbullying. “No, no and, look, I don´t think anybody is doing enough on cyberbullying,” Clinton told Mic when asked if she thought Trump had enforced her platform. Trump condemned cyberbullying in her first United Nations speech in New York City on Wednesday. “We must come together for the good of our children,” she said. “Therefore, we must teach each child the values of empathy and communication that are at the core of kindness, mindfulness, integrity and leadership, which can only be taught by example.”
