Sources: Graham Wrote Repeal
Bill To Cater To Murkowski

Daily Caller, by Robert Donachie

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 9/21/2017 6:11:45 PM

Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina specifically wrote his bill to repeal and replace Obamacare to provide concessions to Sen. Lisa Murkowki’s home state of Alaska, a conservative Hill staffer with first hand knowledge and one conservative strategist told The Daily Caller News Foundation. The Independent Journal reported Thursday afternoon that Graham and Cassidy were trying to “buy” Murkowski’s vote through a series last-minute changes to their repeal bill before the legislation is expected to go up for a vote next week. Sources told TheDCNF that Graham did not sell the bill to conservatives as trying to

Comments:
How disgusting. You knew that little crapweasel sure as heck wouldn´t draft a bill kowtowing to a conservative. Allegedly she is one of the holdouts of this bill. Is she playing some sick, stupid game then? I didn´t know I could despise politicians any more than I do now. I´ve never seen such horrific behavior in my entire life. I know politics has always been bad, but this takes the cake. The thought that any of them care about their constituents or this country is a total and complete joke.

I am so fed up with these "Republican" extortionists who demand concessions for their state in order to be appeased enough to do the right thing. They think and act like Democrat thugs. And I long for the day when they will get their just rewards...

No problem. "Bribe" away. Don´t care how it gets done, just get rid of it. Would have paid a lot more in "lawful" political bribes to stop it in the first place.

Please!! This is how ALL legislation is done. Yes, I think they should change it to make Rand Paul happier (remove all coverage requirements) Actually, if the Obamacare doesn´t specify that coverage requirements are "determined by the Secretary of HHS" then they should be.

You know what´s funny? Cuomo, the demonrat libtard governor of NY is having a hissy fit too because he´ll have to pony up even more money for his gold-plated Medicaid voting base. And I mean gold-plated. It pays for everything including diapers. All he has in his corner is Chuckie and Jellobrand, who would be neutered in the vote. He wants to run for President and can´t afford to cut back Medicaid for his voting base. He won´t be able to dole out free money from his ´let the good times roll from Wall Street taxes´ either. And if he hikes taxes, he´s done for. Too bad; so sad.

You are exactly right, #12. Playing the game with OPM is a delicate balancing act but the point is eventually reached when the owners of the OPM begin to realize that the gimmedats have no interest in giving back anything that is already on their gift list, they keep expecting the gifts to get bigger and now Santa Claus is in a real bind. California and Illinois are beyond the point of no return but New York is quickly catching up.

Julian Assange on the Warpath
After Hillary Slams Him in Interview
PJ Media, by Debra Heine    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 10/17/2017 8:17:53     Post Reply
Julian Assange is fuming at Hillary Clinton after she attacked him during her recent appearance on an Australian news show. In the exclusive interview with Four Corners, a long-running news/documentary program in Australia, Clinton alleged that Assange colluded with Russia to disrupt the 2016 U.S. election and torpedo her candidacy for president. Said Clinton in the softball interview that aired Monday: Assange has become a kind of nihilistic opportunist who does the bidding of a dictator. ... WikiLeaks is unfortunately now practically a fully owned subsidiary of Russian intelligence. This was too much for Assange, who has had it in

We´ve done it. We´ve found the worst response to the growing and increasingly awful Harvey Weinstein sex scandal. Behold: New York Times opinion columnist Michelle Goldberg, who wrote this week, "The movie business is corrupt, depraved and iniquitous — and still morally superior to the Republican Party under Trump." Impressive. She identified a bad thing, and then identified a second bad thing so as to mitigate the sins of the first. We didn´t think we´d see someone from the Times downplay the Hollywood scandal this soon, yet here we are. "Betraying the principle of gender equality is bad. Rejecting it

After meeting, NFL, NFLPA release statement

The much-publicized Tuesday meeting between NFL officials, team owners, NFLPA officials and several players lasted about three hours. While there was undoubtedly a lot discussed in that time, it sounds as though there has not been a resolution on a rule change to require that players stand for the national anthem before games. A statement released jointly by the NFL and NFLPA called it a “productive meeting,” and that there will be another session in the future: Today owners and players had a productive meeting focused on how we can work together to promote positive social change and address inequality

In their recent article in The Hill, John Solomon and Alison Spann reported on the Obama Justice Department’s slow-walk investigation of Moscow’s bribery, kickbacks, extortion and money laundering “designed to grow Vladimir Putin’s atomic energy business inside the United States.” (Snip) Notably absent from The Hill article is the name of Frank Guistra of Uranium One, purported to be the largest single donor to the Clinton Foundation at some $33 million. Guistra’s name does not appear on Clinton Foundation donor lists. In fact, Guistra and aides to President Bill Clinton started a Canadian charity to shield the identities of donors

Roy Price, the head of Amazon Studios has resigned days after being put on indefinite leave over sexual harassment claims. Last week, Price, 51, was brought into the Harvey Weinstein sexual harassment scandal that is engulfing Hollywood by claims from two women. One is producer Isa Hackett who said he sexually harassed her in 2015, telling her: ´You will love my d***´. Actress Rose McGowan, one of the dozens to have accused Weinstein of sexually harassing and assaulting them, also claimed Price ignored her when she confided in him that she had been raped last year.

One Out Of Every Eight US
Residents Is An Immigrant
Daily Caller, by Will Racke    Original Article

Thanks to a two-decade surge in immigration, a greater share of the U.S. population is foreign-born than at any time in the past century, according to a new report. Last year, 13.5 percent — about one in eight– of U.S. residents were immigrants, the highest percentage in 106 years. In absolute terms, the U.S. was home to about 44 million immigrants, the most in the country’s history. A huge slice of the immigrant population has arrived over the last 16 years, according to a report from Steve Camarota and Karen Zeigler of the Center for Immigration Studies.

The bureau released a file entitled “Drafts of Director Comey’s July 5, 2016 Statement Regarding Email Server Investigation,” to its Freedom of Information Act website.

Liberals in shock over the the 2016 election were prescribed a heavy dose of reality. "Get out of your bubble," the doctors note illegibly read. It was a hard truth for the American left. They found out the U.S. was not as progressive as originally thought. Their steady diet of MSNBC and left-wing op-eds only reinforced biases and preconceived beliefs. The country´s actual, collective tilt wholly evaded them. One recommended solution: Search out opposing points of view. Turn on Fox News every once in a while; follow more conservative voices on Twitter. This would be an honorable endeavor for liberals,

Hillary Clinton slammed what she called "endemic" sexism and misogyny in America during an interview with Fareed Zakaria, which aired Sunday. Clinton, who was interviewed by Zakaria on his show, "GPS," said sexism was so inherent that she purposely hadn´t highlighted her career history of fighting for women´s rights when she ran for president in 2016. However, she admitted that with the benefit of hindsight, she "could have tried harder" to do so. "I´m a middle-class girl from the middle of the country, and so I always struggled with like, OK, so what´s my story. And it suddenly dawned on me that

Hillary Clinton on Sunday defended NFL players who knelt during the national anthem, saying kneeling is a “reverent” position that is not against “our anthem or our flag.” The former Democratic presidential candidate, who was at the Southbank Centre´s London Literature Festival, urged Democrats to use the issue against President Trump. Clinton was embarking on a foreign trip to promote her book “What Happened.” She said people should resist “what are very clear dog-whistles” to the Trump base, pointing to the example of kneeling NFL players. “That´s what black athletes kneeling was all about,” she said in response to a question about ways to

Jane Fonda made it clear she is not proud of America. During a recent interview with the BBC, Fonda was asked, "Are you proud of America today?" The actress was very quick to reply with a hard "no." "But, I’m proud of the resistance," she elaborated. "I’m proud of the people who are turning out in unprecedented numbers and continue over and over and over again to protest what Trump is doing. I’m very proud of them, that core." During the same interview, the 79-year-old was asked if she had a "sense of regret" for her visit to North Vietnam in 1972. The
