Rand Paul´s Epic Obamacare Flip-Flop?
Weekly Standard, by John McCormack

Original Article

Posted By:MissMolly, 9/21/2017 4:58:18 AM

At the end of July, Kentucky senator Rand Paul advocated and voted for the so-called "skinny repeal" bill of Obamacare. "Skinny repeal is better than no repeal," Paul said on Fox News. "The reason I will advocate and vote for skinny repeal is that it´s the best I can get." But now that Republicans are trying to take one last shot at Obamacare by passing the Graham-Cassidy bill, Paul is adamantly opposed to the "better than nothing" argument. "It keeps 90 percent of the spending of Obamacare and reshuffles it," Paul told reporters on Monday, dismissing Graham-Cassidy as "Obamacare Lite." "If you

All of the people who are so worried about Russia destroying the country have completely overlooked the Senate.

There are times "better than nothing" morphs into "nothing is better than this." It all depends what the comparison to nothing offers. Repeal is not "repeal and replace"...I hope it fails.

The Case for the Baker in the
Gay-Wedding Culture War
New York Magazine, by Andrew Sullivan    Original Article
Posted By: MissMolly- 12/9/2017 5:04:13     Post Reply
If someone had asked me back in the day, if, in 2017, we’d be having a discussion about whether a fundamentalist baker should be forced by the law to create a wedding cake for a gay couple, I’d have been gobsmacked, as the Brits say. Smacked in the gob because only a decade ago such a question would have seemed so remotely hypothetical as to be absurd. And yet, here we are. A Christian baker has taken a stand on the grounds of religious conscience and artistic freedom not to provide a cake specifically designed for a legal, constitutional same-sex

The Big Religious Liberty Question

If Tuesday’s oral argument is any indication, the year-long anticipation for the Masterpiece Cakeshop Supreme Court showdown will result in a narrow opinion that provides little clarity in the continuing conflict between culture and religious liberty. By now the basics are well-known: When a homosexual couple asked Jack Phillips, the owner of the Colorado-based Masterpiece Cakeshop, to design a wedding cake for them, Phillips informed the pair that he could not, in conscience, create a cake to celebrate a same-sex marriage. The men filed a complaint with the Colorado Civil Rights Division, claiming Masterpiece Cakeshop “discriminated against them in a place

Franken’s Phony Finale

Al Franken’s resignation speech on Thursday seemed less heartfelt than grudging. He cast it not as an act of atonement — he continues to deny the charges largely and acknowledged through his stifled rage that his previous quasi-apologies had hastened his demise — but a reluctant act of gallantry. He was submitting docilely to the “broader conversation” on sexual harassment, he said, while signaling that his replacement, to whom he referred as “her,” would be a female pol embodying that conversation. The speech followed the usual pattern of lying pols: I didn’t do it, I’m only quitting because I am a

It´s been ten months since Washington learned that former British spy Christopher Steele, author of the so-called "Trump dossier," took the Hillary Clinton-funded opposition research document to the FBI, which considered sponsoring the anti-Trump work at the height of the 2016 presidential campaign. Now, congressional investigators have made what is perhaps an even more consequential discovery: Knowledge of the dossier project, during the campaign, extended into the highest levels of the Obama Justice Department. The department´s Bruce Ohr, a career official, served as associate deputy attorney general at the time of the campaign. That placed him just below the deputy attorney

Why has the #MeToo revolution spared Woody Allen?
Los Angeles Times, by Dylan Farrow    Original Article
Posted By: MissMolly- 12/8/2017 4:42:04     Post Reply
We are in the midst of a revolution. From allegations against studio heads and journalists, to hotel maids recounting abuses on the job, women are exposing the truth and men are losing their jobs. But the revolution has been selective. I have long maintained that when I was 7 years old, Woody Allen led me into an attic, away from the babysitters who had been instructed never to leave me alone with him. He then sexually assaulted me. I told the truth to the authorities then, and I have been telling it, unaltered, for more than 20 years. Why is it

French ambassador bashes
US on Pearl Harbor Day
New York Post, by Joe Tacopino    Original Article
Posted By: MissMolly- 12/8/2017 4:27:26     Post Reply
The French ambassador to the United States used Pearl Harbor Day as an occasion to bash America’s position on World War II in the 1930s. “In this Pearl Harbor day, we should remember that the US refused to side with France and UK to confront fascist powers in the 30s,” Gérard Araud wrote Thursday night in a now-deleted tweet. The military attack on a US naval base in Pearl Harbor, Hawaii on Dec. 7 1941 signaled the entrance of America’s into the war. The French ambassador quickly deleted the misguided tweet — but continued to defend the sentiment in subsequent

Southern California wildfires burn with

Firefighters across Southern California are battling six major wildfires, and brutal Santa Ana winds are expected to continue fanning the flames through Saturday. California´s Department of Forest and Fire Protection tweeted Thursday afternoon that the new fires, the Lilac fire in San Diego County and the Liberty fire in Riverside County, are now being fueled by continued Santa Ana winds and low humidity. Winds are expected to die down some on Friday, before picking up again in intensity on Saturday. The weather is not cooperating with the hundreds of officials trying to contain the flames in the region. Red flag

The Franken Hedge
Power Line, by Steven Hayward    Original Article
Posted By: MissMolly- 12/7/2017 3:19:57     Post Reply
Did anyone else notice a crucial passage in Franken’s statement on the Senate floor this morning? He said that he’d be resigning “in the coming weeks.” How many weeks? Will reporters ask him for a date certain? Notice, too, that he neither apologized nor admitted to any wrongdoing. Quite the opposite—he essentially implied that some of his accusers are lying, and he couldn’t help but attack President Trump and Roy Moore. I think Franken is attempting a super-Clintonian dodge. He had to address the immediate firestorm, but he’s probably holding out for Roy Moore to win the election in Alabama next

In year of chaos, Trump’s boost
to economy can’t be denied
New York Post, by John Crudele    Original Article
Posted By: MissMolly- 12/7/2017 4:25:59     Post Reply
President Trump has an ace in the hole that his opponents are forgetting. Again! Despite all the sideshows — the alleged Russian interference in the election, obstruction of justice probes, ringers in Trump investigations and, of course, the president’s big mouth and poor judgment — Trump became president because of one thing: The US economy hadn’t been growing enough to please voters. The sideshows (which I’ll get into later) continue, but the economy looks like it is doing better. So Trump is scoring points on the one issue that matters most to voters. According to the official numbers, the economy is growing moderately

´Jeopardy!´ winner charged with computer

A former “Jeopardy!” winner -- and one-time record holder -- has been charged with two felony counts after an intensive investigation into alleged cyber crimes. Stephanie Jass, 47, appeared in Lenawee County court in Michigan on Tuesday to face charges of unauthorized access to a computer and using a computer to commit a crime. According to The Daily Telegram of Adrian, the first charge alone carries with it a potential penalty of five years in prison and a $10,000 fine. The former game show champ allegedly accessed email accounts of co-workers at Adrian College, where she used to work. Representatives for the

Brian Ross’s Jackknife on

Before last week, Brian Ross’s greatest claim to infamy was that he had his hand slapped by a former pope. He once ambushed Joseph Ratzinger (then a cardinal) as he got out of a car in Rome. Hitting him with questions related to the abuse scandal, Ross caught Ratzinger raw, which threw him badly enough that he slapped Ross’s hand and barked at his bad manners. Now Ross has had his hand slapped again, not so much because he committed an act of journalistic malpractice that smeared the presidency and caused markets to tumble but because he made his colleagues look

The quest for collusion is over as the
desperate shriek for impeachment begins
Washington Post, by Ed Rogers    Original Article
Posted By: MissMolly- 12/5/2017 3:48:38     Post Reply
The quest for collusion is over. Special counsel Robert S. Mueller III’s Russia investigation has not — either through leaks or announced indictments — revealed any collusion, and Democrats and their allies in the liberal mainstream media know that it never will. This reality is setting in among the president’s clearer-thinking foes, and they are transitioning to an obstruction of justice claim in an effort to sustain the fight with President Trump. Mueller’s investigation has been looking into Russian meddling in the 2016 election since May. His team has made a number of consequential findings, but none of them establish collusion

One of the women who accused Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore of making advances on her when she was a teen and he a local prosecutor admitted Friday to forging part of the yearbook inscription she offered as proof. Beverly Young Nelson told ABC News she wrote part of the disputed note in her high school yearbook that she and famed attorney Gloria Allred presented as proof the then-30-something Moore sought an inappropriate relationship with her in the late 1970s.

I´m pretty much done with the sex scandals. They were fun, but they´re just going to have to carry on without me. If someone broke the law and you can prove it, prosecute him. If someone violated the rules of his organization, eject him. Other than that, if women have forgotten the fine art of slapping a man in the face, there´s not a whole hell of a lot society can do for them. You keep silent for forty years and then ruin a man´s career with an unprovable allegation — and that makes you a hero? Not to me. Look,

Prior to President Donald Trump’s visit to the opening of the Mississippi Civil Rights Museum today, Fox & Friends brought on Trump supporter and former sheriff David Clarke to discuss the president’s appearance. And things got very tense very fast. Right off the bat, co-host Pete Hegseth asked Clarke what he thought about Rep. John Lewis (D-GA), a civil rights icon, deciding not to attend the opening because Trump would be in attendance. Clarke reacted by immediately dismissing Lewis. “John who?” Clarke mocking stated. “John Lewis — he was bloodied on the Selma bridge, Sheriff, when trying to protest voting

MSNBC "Hardball" host Chris Matthews said Thursday night that "the worst you can say about Democrats is that they´re too pure" in light of recent resignation announcements made by Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn.) and Sen. John Conyers (D-Mich.) amid sexual harassment allegations. Franken, 66, on Thursday, announced his intention to resign from the Senate by defiantly stating that some of the eight accusations of sexual misconduct made against him were false while saying he remembered other encounters differently.

California Gov.

In ever so lacy, delicate and pious tears-and-flapdoodle language, former President Obama basically suggested President Trump is Hitler. According to the Daily Mail: Barack Obama appeared to compare Donald Trump´s presidency to Hitler´s rise to power during a speech in Chicago on Tuesday. The former president was speaking at an event thrown by the Economic Club of Chicago at a Hilton hotel when he made the remarks. Without mentioning the current president, Obama told the gathered audience of 1,800: ´We have to tend to this garden of democracy or else things could fall apart quickly.

WASHINGTON — Around 5:30 each morning, President Trump wakes and tunes into the television in the White House’s master bedroom. He flips to CNN for news, moves to “Fox & Friends” for comfort and messaging ideas, and sometimes watches MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” because, friends suspect, it fires him up for the day. Energized, infuriated — often a gumbo of both — Mr. Trump grabs his iPhone. Sometimes he tweets while propped on his pillow, according to aides. Other times he tweets from the den next door, watching another television. Less frequently, he makes his way up the hall to the

Thomas B. Edsall, one of the pre-eminent commentators on American politics and elections, has written a piece for the New York Times, provocatively titled “Liberals Need To Take Their Fingers Out of Their Ears.” In it, he argues that the roots of President Trump’s success—and our increasingly bitter politics—should be laid at the feet (to continue with the body-part metaphors) of liberals. “Many Democrats,” he writes, “continue to have little understanding of their own role — often inadvertent, an unintended consequence of well-meaning behavior — in creating the conditions that make conservatives willing to support Trump and the party he

An article in the U.K. Independent entitled "Christians should pray for Prince Charles to be gay, says senior Scottish Reverend" reports on the recent blog post by the Very Reverend Kelvin Holdsworth, provost of St. Mary´s Cathedral of the Scottish Episcopal Church of the Anglican Union. Reverend Holdsworth has issued a public call for prayer that four-year-old Prince George be homosexual and that he one day "find love" with a man rather than a woman. Holdsworth is praying for Queen George I. Reverend Holdsworth is a prominent British pro-homosexuality activist. The fundamental precept of the reverend´s political movement is that
