Dems Want to Win in 2018. They Shouldn´t.
Real Clear Politics, by Tom Bevan

Original Article

Posted By:garnet, 2/6/2018 8:28:45 AM

Although talk of a “blue wave” has been tempered recently by a tightening of the generic congressional ballot, Democrats remain giddy at their prospects of taking back control of one or both chambers of Congress in this fall’s midterm elections. They should be careful what they wish for. To capture the House of Representatives, Democrats need to pick up 24 districts now held by Republicans. Strong recruitment and campaign fundraising have put enough seats across the country in play for Democrats to bring winning the lower chamber within reach. In the Senate, they only need a net gain of two seats,

The democrats have their radical left base solidly contained. Everyone else, not so much! Hatred, lies and anti-American planks in their platform are not winners.

The media is ignoring ties between the
Clinton campaign and Russians
Washington Post, by Ed Rogers    Original Article
Posted By: garnet- 2/14/2018 10:18:24     Post Reply
While the media is filled with stories and theories about Trump’s interactions — or lack thereof — with Russia, not enough attention is being paid to revelations about pro-Hillary Clinton operatives’ use of opposition research that ostensibly came from Russia. With the Democrats unable to govern and lacking much of an affirmative agenda, they want Russia to be the story. Yet with each passing day, more seems to be revealed that not only undercuts the absolute faith Democrats have in the Trump-Russia collusion narrative but also demonstrates just how much they did and how far they were willing to go

Obamacare’s Own Private Idaho
American Spectator, by David Catron    Original Article

While the nation remains transfixed by the deep state skullduggery employed to install Hillary Clinton in the White House, a quiet revolution has been gathering steam in flyover country. The latest skirmish was fought on February 7, when the Idaho House Health and Welfare Committee voted to send Governor Butch Otter’s less restrictive alteration to Obamacare to the full Idaho House of Representatives. The opening salvo took the form of a January executive order from Otter requiring the state’s Department of Insurance to examine all options for making health coverage affordable for Idahoans, whether or not they complied with Obamacare:

Will the FISA memo turn
into Obama´s Watergate?
The Hill [Washington, DC], by Sebastion Gorka    Original Article
Posted By: garnet- 2/10/2018 9:03:55     Post Reply
Forty-six years ago, a group of hamfisted burglars bungled the task of bugging the Democratic National Committee’s offices in the Watergate building in Washington D.C. Two years later, Richard Nixon resigned as president a result of the failed cover-up that ensued. Although Barack Obama is no longer president, the abuses that occurred within the FBI and Justice Department under his watch already have the potential to eclipse the Watergate scandal in their historic significance and damage done to American government. A Beltway adage has it that “it’s always the cover-up that’ll get you, not the original transgression.”

Palin Vindicated: GOP Sends
IPAB to the Death Panel

Posted By: garnet- 2/9/2018 3:05:24     Post Reply
Despite what we keep reading in the “news” media about the failure of the GOP to repeal Obamacare, congressional Republicans and President Trump are steadily dismembering the justly reviled healthcare law, limb by pernicious limb. The latest appendage to be lopped off was among its most dangerous — the Independent Payment Advisory Board (IPAB). IPAB was designed by the law’s authors as a rationing board composed of unelected bureaucrats with the power to “recommend” reductions in Medicare payments to doctors and hospitals. This would have reduced access to care for the elderly. That dangerous Obamacare provision

Stage a grand military parade?
Absolutely – it’s overdue
New York Post, by Rich Lowry    Original Article
Posted By: garnet- 2/9/2018 9:47:11     Post Reply
The Pentagon has confirmed that it is in the preliminary stages of planning a military parade down Pennsylvania Avenue — one of President Trump’s fondest desires. Trump was, understandably, impressed in a visit to France last July by the pageantry of the Bastille Day parade. The parade dates back to the 1880s. Nothing the United States comes up with will match its resonance or its beloved, unifying nature. Trump’s motivation for ordering up a parade anyway is pretty obvious. He likes big, brassy displays, and he gets a kick out of being the commander in chief of the most impressive military on

Democrats Are Headed for a

After years of non-stop virtue signaling as the party of "truth, justice and equality," the Democrats are slowly, inexorably being revealed to be the reverse. They are being hoisted on the petard of their own moral narcissism. It has made them blind. So convinced of their own righteousness were they that it allowed them to participate in, even instigate, the subversion of our justice system to the extent of lying to and deceiving a FISA court in the name of what they assumed was "good." They did this in concert with people who claimed to be Republicans or "independents" working for

Hospitals Get Reprieve From
Obamacare Pay Cuts
American Spectator, by David Catron    Original Article
Posted By: garnet- 2/7/2018 9:22:53     Post Reply
The spending deal reached today in the Senate, like the budget bill that passed yesterday in the House, includes a two-year delay in payment cuts that were about to hit “disproportionate share” (DSH) hospitals. The cuts would have been imposed by Obamacare pursuant to the Faustian bargain the hospital industry made with the Democrats in 2010. The American Hospital Association (AHA) and various other industry groups were suckered into this agreement after being promised that a stampede of newly insured patients were going to come pouring out of the Obamacare exchanges and uncompensated care would drop dramatically.

Republicans See Trump as Top
Asset in Senate Races
Real Clear Politics, by Caitlin Huey-Burns    Original Article
Posted By: garnet- 2/7/2018 10:08:05     Post Reply
While conventional wisdom holds that Donald Trump will be a drag on Republican chances of maintaining control of the House, those vying to expand the party’s majority in the Senate are embracing the president as a unique asset in the upcoming campaigns. Unlike the House map, the Republicans´ path to success in the upper chamber runs through 10 states Trump won in 2016 -- five of them by double-digit margins. But beyond those favorable fundamentals, the GOP is looking to the president to lead something of a mass-marketing campaign against well-known Democratic incumbents. Party operatives see the president´s penchant for coining catchy

Taking back the House will be harder
than Democrats think
Washington Post, by Karen Tumulty    Original Article
Posted By: garnet- 2/7/2018 10:03:40     Post Reply
Democrats are feeling cheery at the prospect that this fall will bring an end to the power outage they suffered in 2016 and the near-irrelevance they have endured since. Conditions look particularly good for taking back the House. Off-year elections in a president’s first term nearly always cost his party some seats, and President Trump’s historically low approval ratings are an especially heavy weight for Republicans. The fact that so many GOP incumbents are in a rush to retire is no mere coincidence. Democrats also have enthusiasm on their side, something that hasn’t been the case in a nonpresidential year since 2006.

What if the Iran Deal Was a Mistake?
Slate, by Joshua Keating    Original Article
Posted By: garnet- 2/6/2018 8:04:46     Post Reply
On May 15, 2015, just a few months before the U.S. and other world powers signed a nuclear deal with Iran, President Barack Obama convened what was to be a high-profile meeting of Middle East leaders at Camp David. King Salman of Saudi Arabia, however, was a no-show. King Hamad of Bahrain elected to go to a horse show in the U.K. instead. The elderly rulers of Oman and the UAE also stayed home, citing health concerns. This was widely seen as a snub by leaders deeply angered by the soon-to-be-signed nuclear deal and an overall sense that the Obama administration was shifting politically toward Tehran.

The Nunes Memo and the Death
of American Journalism

Charlie Savage is a clever guy. The New York Times reporter managed to get a full-fledged editorial into the news section of his paper when the controversial Nunes memo was released on Friday. He did it through a journalistic device that is likely to be more widely used in the future as standards of objectivity and fairness continue to wither: an “annotated” version of the original document. The memo, three and a half pages long and compiled by House Intelligence Committee chairman Devin Nunes, documents what the Wall Street Journal calls “disturbing facts about how the FBI and the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court appear

Trump’s lawyer admits paying

President Trump’s personal lawyer admitted on Tuesday that he paid off a porn star who allegedly had an affair with his boss — but insisted that the payout was his own money and not connected to the Trump Organization or the presidential campaign. Michael D. Cohen said in a statement to The New York Times that he paid Stormy Daniels $130,000 in 2016 — but did not give the newspaper a further explanation about why the payment was made. “Neither the Trump Organization nor the Trump campaign was a party to the transaction with Ms. Clifford, and neither reimbursed me for the payment, either directly or indirectly,”

(Video) - Former GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney is running for the Senate in Utah. Three people with direct knowledge of the plan tell the Associated Press Romney will formally launch his campaign in a video on Thursday. His first public appearance as a Senate candidate is scheduled for Friday in Utah. The people who provided the information asked for anonymity because they were not authorized to talk about Romney´s plans in advance. Romney, who is 70, is seeking to replace 83-year-old Republican Sen. Orrin Hatch, who is retiring after more than 40 years in the U.S. Senate. The former Massachusetts governor

The Prince of Wales appears to have made a dig at US president Donald Trump while speaking about the need to protect the world´s coral reefs from climate change. Trump once declared global warming as a ´hoax´ and withdrew the United States from the Paris climate change agreement almost as soon as he entered office. Speaking at an event held this morning in London, Prince Charles spoke about the urgent and pressing need to unite in order to protect the world´s coral reefs against the combined threats of climate change, pollution, plastic and over fishing. He said: ´This event is vitally important

Democrats immediately politicized the Florida school shooting that left at least 17 people dead on Wednesday and demanded gun control legislation, even before it was known how the shooter got his gun and whether any proposed legislation would have stopped it. Some Democrats blamed Republicans for Wednesday’s tragedy, without citing any evidence whatsoever. “Republicans should pray for forgiveness, for not only their complacency and dereliction of duty, but in contrition for the men, women and children we continue to lay to rest because of senseless gun violence and the cowardly inaction from Congress,”

Former President Barack Obama demanded unspecified “common-sense gun safety laws” after the Florida school shooting on Wednesday that left 17 people dead. “We are grieving with Parkland. But we are not powerless. Caring for our kids is our first job. And until we can honestly say that we’re doing enough to keep them safe from harm, including long overdue, common-sense gun safety laws that most Americans want, then we have to change,” Obama wrote in a statement posted to Twitter. (Snip) Obama did not specify what exact actions he is calling for, or whether they would have prevented Wednesday’s tragedy.

Student leaders at a high school in the San Francisco Bay Area have decided that the national anthem is racist and outdated and have banned it from school rallies. According to multiple area news outlets, the Associated Student Body at California High School in San Ramon made that decision based on a phrase in the rarely-played third verse. “It was brought to our attention that the national anthem’s third verse is outdated and racially offensive,” Ariyana Kermanizadeh wrote in an open letter. “We had nothing but good intentions by removing the song so that we could be fully inclusive to our student

Washington - There is "ample evidence" that the Trump campaign colluded with Russians, but only special counsel Robert Mueller can decide if it´s enough to prove a crime beyond a reasonable doubt, the senior Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee said Wednesday. "There is already, in my view, ample evidence in the public domain on the issue of collusion if you're willing to see it," Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif, told reporters at a newsmaker breakfast hosted by the Christian Science Monitor. "If you want to blind yourself, then you can look the other way."

He preened with guns and knives on social media, bragged about shooting rats with his BB gun and got kicked out of school — in part because he had brought bullets in his backpack, according to one classmate. He was later expelled for still-undisclosed disciplinary reasons. The portrait of Nikolas Cruz, suspected of fatally shooting 17 people at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland and wounding 15 others at his former school, is a troubled teen with few friends and an obsessive interest in weapons. Administrators considered him enough of a potential threat that one teacher said a warning

President Trump’s legal team is citing a three-pillar argument to convince investigators, and the public, that President Trump shouldn’t sit down for an interview with special counsel Robert Mueller. Mr. Mueller wants access to the president as part of an inquiry into suspected obstruction of justice in the firing of the special counsel’s longtime friend, FBI Director James B. Comey, in May. The president’s legal team has resisted but not given a firm no. Here are the arguments against an interview. • The White House has given Mr. Mueller unprecedented access to White House documents and people. • There is no stated crime. •

BREAKING: Senator Adam Schiff will not be making any revisions to the Democratic memo Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), the top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, said Tuesday night that members of his party won’t revise their countermemo, despite requests from the White House to do so. “We’re not going to make any revisions to it. The only question is what redactions will be made. And obviously we’d like to keep those to a minimum,” Schiff told reporters. “The White House has a different interest. I think their interest is in redacting anything that doesn’t reflect well on the White House,” Schiff added.
