Paul Ryan Blames John McCain for
Tanking Obamacare Repeal

Breitbart Big Government, by Sean Moran

Original Article

Posted By:earlybird, 2/14/2018 7:43:06 PM

House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) blamed Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) on Fox Business on Tuesday for tanking Obamacare repeal. Ryan told Fox Business anchor Maria Bartiromo, “Republicans passed the biggest entitlement reform package ever when we passed our healthcare bill. Unfortunately, somebody did this instead of that in the Senate, and it didn’t pass.” “We have to get our other partners in government to be willing to do the kind of entitlement reform that we’re willing to do in the House,” Ryan added. House Republicans passed the American Health Care Act (AHCA) in 2017; however, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell failed to pass

...more Republicans should highlight McCain´s attitude and actions as an obstructionist...

...the story of being a "maverick" has gotten old and outdated. He´s a bitter old man now that the parade has passed him by...

I´m guessing McLame is never coming back to the Senate and because he knows it, Ryan is comfortable throwing him under the bus.

Well McCain did fly back from Arizona just to cast the vote against repealing Obamacare....then he flew after he caused McConnell to almost faint. You would think he would have at least notified McConnell of his intended vote, then Mc would probably have told him to stay home. What an embarrassment, but that’s how McCain works.

I´ve been suspicious of McCain for a long time due to words not matching actions. And I´ve always thought it goes back to Viet Nam.

Is he as much a Republican/Conservative as he was a real POW?

McNasty became a POW by his own Aircraft Piloting choice of actions. He was not the brightest light in the box of Navel Pilots.

During his stay at the Vietnam Hanoi Hilton POW Camp, he sang like a bird to his enemy captors.

Johnny came back from Vietnam all FUBAR in the head. The good people of AZ never fully understood how badly McNasty came back from Vietnam.

McPain has been a thorn in our GOP side from his first term in the Senate.

It´s easy to blame McCain who totally failed the Republican party but I hold responsible everyone in the senate who allowed him to cast the deciding vote.

President Trump announced Wednesday that the U.S. will begin to deduct foreign aid from countries whose residents illegally enter the United States. "Many of these countries we give tremendous amounts of aid to. Tens of millions of dollars. And we´re working on a plan to deduct a lot of the aid," Trump said at an event in New York denouncing the Salvadoran gang MS-13. "We´re going to work out something where every time someone comes in from a certain country, we´re going to deduct a rather large amount of money from what we give them in aid, if we give

Special counsel Robert Mueller is fighting for complete secrecy in his probe into Russia´s role in the presidential election and his arguments for privacy hint that his investigation is growing across multiple fronts. ´The Special Counsel´s investigation is not a closed matter, but an ongoing criminal investigation with multiple lines of non-public inquiry.

SAN FRANCISCO -- Uber is pulling its self-driving cars out of Arizona. The ride-sharing company´s reversal was triggered by the recent death of woman who was run over by one of its robotic vehicles while crossing a darkened street in a Phoenix suburb. The decision announced Wednesday means Uber won´t be bringing back its self-driving cars to the streets to Arizona, eliminating the jobs of about 300 people who served as backup drivers and performed other jobs connected to the vehicles.

House rolls back Dodd-Frank regulations
NJTVonline.org [NJ], by BRIANA VANNOZZI    Original Article
Posted By: earlybird- 5/24/2018 10:45:56     Post Reply
Critics of Dodd-Frank have been working to roll back the regulations since it passed in 2010. The law was put in place following the economic collapse of 2008 when big banks went belly up, markets collapsed, and millions of homeowners fell into foreclosure and lost savings. The federal government stepped in fronting trillions of dollars to stabilize the economy. Tuesday’s vote is the first, in what many expect to be more, dismantling the banking rule. “If you listened to the debate on the floor yesterday, Hensarling, who’s head of the committee, actually said we should get rid of Dodd-Frank.

Trump may have given Kim

China’s President Xi Jinping and North Korea’s leader Kim Jong Un have applied the brakes on hopeful plans for a historic June 12 meeting between President Trump and Kim. This is a good thing for a couple of reasons. First, the Trump administration can use some breathing room to devise a coherent negotiating strategy for a conversation with potentially momentous consequences. Perhaps even more significantly, the last-minute intervention of Xi — who apparently summoned Kim to Beijing for their second meeting in less than a month after three years of mutual isolation — exposes China’s long-term deceit and hypocrisy on the

President Donald Trump called off his summit with Kim Jong-un on Thursday after North Korea hurled insults at Vice President Mike Pence. Trump said it would be ´inappropriate´ to hold talks at this time after the Kim regime again tested the limits of his patience. ´You talk about your nuclear capabilities, but ours are so massive and powerful that I pray to God they will never be used,´ he said in a letter to Kim that the White House distributed. North Korea´s vice foreign minister had slammed Pence for his ´unbridled and impudent remarks that North Korea might end like Libya.´ Choe Son Hui

The FBI opened Crossfire Hurricane, a counterintelligence investigation of the Trump campaign, on July 31, 2016. Ten months later, Acting Attorney General Rod Rosenstein passed the counter­intelligence baton to special counsel Robert Mueller to continue the inquiry. Thus, the question of whether there was “any links and/or coordination between the Russian government and individuals associated with the campaign of President Donald Trump” has dragged on for 22 months. To quote former FBI director James Comey when defending the drafting of an exoneration of Hillary Clinton in May 2016, 11 months into her email investigation and before interviewing her, “If you’ve been

One of the mysteries of the deep state is just how deep it is. Like the Kryptos sculpture in the courtyard of the Central Intelligence Agency, it has proven remarkably resistant to decoding since its emergence in the aftermath of World War II, after the creation of the CIA. It is, in a very real sense, its own cipher, hiding in plain sight all along and just daring the civilians to call it by its name: the Permanent Bipartisan Fusion Party. As it happens, the leaders of the PBFP sat for a group portrait the other day. The occasion was

The Obama administration spied on the Trump campaign, infiltrated the campaign, colluded with foreign powers to attack the campaign, then worked to damage a newly elected president and ultimately overthrow an entire administration. Those collective actions are now known as “Spygate” and the Establishment Media is desperate to insulate Mr. Obama from being directly implicated in what is quickly turning into the single greatest political scandal in U.S. history. All of the major news outlets are minimizing the shocking implications of Spygate while aggressively pushing third-tier stories involving Michael Cohen and the like.

NFL club owners are considering potential 15-yard penalties for kneeling during the national anthem among ways of coping with a backlash over player protests, Sports Illustrated reported Tuesday. According to a story on the magazine´s website, owners set aside three hours to talk about the anthem issue, which President Donald Trump elevated into a major controversy last year. Ideas to handle players kneeling during the anthem included allowing home teams to decide if players should be out of the locker room during the pre-game playing of The Star-Spangled Banner or not.If players are on the sideline, then 15-yard

President Trump cannot block people from his @realDonaldTrump account just because he doesn’t like their political views, a Manhattan federal judge ruled on Wednesday. Doing so violates their First Amendment right to free speech because Twitter is a “public forum,” Judge Naomi Reice Buchwald wrote in a landmark ruling that could change how public officials use Twitter. “We reject the defendants’ contentions that the First Amendment does not apply in this case and that the President’s personal First Amendment interests supersede those of plaintiffs,” the judge wrote in her 75-page ?decision.

The Democratic Party has no leader right now. No one. Former President Barack Obama is palling around with his billionaire, island-owning buddies. Socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders is kicking back in one of his three houses (we’re guessing the big one on Lake Champlain). And the 20-some 2020 presidential wannabes are all jockeying for media attention (and cash, lots of cash). In such a void, that leaves just one person with the spotlight: the bitter, ever-angry, petty, vindictive Hillary Clinton. Mrs. Clinton told the Democratic Women’s Leadership Forum on Friday that she would be a foundational part of the anti-Trump

Democrat Rep.

Speaking to C-Span, Rep. Green suggested that he has the "right and privilege" to impeach the president, even absent evidence that the president has committed "high crimes" or "misdemeanors" by virtue of the U.S. Constitution. "There’s a good likelihood there will be articles of impeachment” brought against the President, Rep. Green said.
