Who Lost The House? John McCain
Wall Street Journal, by Jason Lewis

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 11/12/2018 1:27:18 PM

The Republican Party lost its House majority on July 28, 2017, when Sen. John McCain ended the party’s seven-year quest to repeal ObamaCare. House leadership had done an admirable job herding cats. On the second try, we passed the American Health Care Act in May. Then McCain’s inscrutable vote against the Senate’s “skinny repeal” killed the reform effort. McCain’s last-minute decision prompted a “green wave” of liberal special-interest money, which was used to propagate false claims that the House plan “gutted coverage for people with pre-existing conditions.” That line was the Democrats’ most potent attack

Sorry, but don´t believe the GOP found, or used, a counter ad that would illustrate that anyone with health insurance from their employer was covered for pre-existing conditions.

Or, that the law the Dems were claiming was only for the roughly 7% of those insurance plans bought individually on the exchanges?

Republican messaging, or lack thereof, during this last election has been horrible.
Needs to be short and succinct just like the Democrats. Don´t worry about trying to explain the position, the Dems don´t.

RINOS and dems are gradually dragging America down through political corruption and into sociatal chaos. ...Same old story, ´´The rich get richer and the poor get poorer,´´ under socialism/fascism´s tyranny. Freedom and the inherent Rights of each & every individual are left behind, filed away in separated, ticky-tacky, ´collective?!´ boxes labeled as simply workers. Welcome to 1984 if indeed the unscrupulous self-engrandizing lefty pols get their way.

If you own a registered firearm, you are in deep trouble! Trump and weak Republicans will throw our 2nd Amendment Rights out the door to get something like wall financing...then the RATS will withdraw funding! It´s going to be an awful 2 years, but 2 years that will irritate enough conservatives to take back the house, increase the Senate and re-elect Trump! MAGA!

McCain is only part of the blame. The Republicans lost because the Democrats worked harder. Trump did his part, but the rest of the Republican party was same old same old. Really think the Republican party is happier with the Democrats in charge.

Yes, yes, yes, #4. You are so right. This is the most infuriating behavior of Republicans. They don´t know how to fight. This is probably one reason wny Trump scared them so much.

As for McCain, his bitterness was so great and deep that he carried it onto his deathbed and into the grave and even beyond it when he made sure POTUS was not "invited" to his funeral. According to Scripture, according to whether McCain (or anyone) forgave those who he believed harmed him, God will forgive him.

What a small, small man he was in the end.
An awful lot worse stuff had been done to and said about him, but he savored and chewed on a special hatred for President Trump.

Hatred being blind, it strikes friend and foe when it´s unbridled. So his gleeful alliance with the Dems that one last time, thumb in air, sinister grin on face he hurt Trump, but he hurt the Country he professed to honor.

Perhaps the worst aspect of Obamacare is that it took smart people´s ingenuity and hard-working people´s toil and turned those positive traits against them as all scrambled to find ways of coping with the crippling paperwork, regulation and cost of this socialist monstrosity.

And because the anonymous millions of CPAs, nurses, doctors, insurance adjusters, programmers, database admins, etc. did so well at their jobs, turncoat Republicans could sit in wing chairs in the Capitol and say with a straight face: ´You know, Obamacare really isn´t so bad after all.´

Well # 20, when McCain torpedoed the modest Senate proposal he made it effectively impossible for the Republicans and President Trump to put together and enact any sort of health care legislation in time for the midterms.

Fairly or not, that legislative failure hobbled many GOP candidates during the recent elections and gave the Dems and their media allies a potent political weapon, of which they made full use.

McCain well knew that he was placing Trump and the GOP congress in that bind when he flashed his infamous "thumbs down" sign.

And he did it with angry and malicious glee, a trait which characterized his entire public life. What a man.

Another reason that the establishment Republicans have been known as the Stupid Party for so long. The party is also riddled with Democrats in disguise also known as RINOs and their Never Trumper collaboration.

The Democrats would never put up with such a disloyal situation in their party. President Trump has been successful at outing and getting rid of a lot of those RINOs, but there is still a good ways to go. Unfortunately the wimpy Republicans may well end up committing long-term political suicide before they see the light.

I agree with those angry with both McCain and Ryan, but I think we should go a step further with Ryan. Ryan did nothing during the campaign except make snide remarks about Trump.

I think the House Republicans (who are still in office until 01/03/2019!)de-throne Ryan RIGHT NOW and replace him?

I´d prefer Jim Jordan for interim Speaker, but I´d tolerate Kevin McCarthy just to punish Ryan.

Ryan should never be permitted to run for office as a Republican EVER AGAIN!

McCain walked into the Senate chamber for the last time, stopped and gave a big “thumbs down” sign on the obamacare vote.
McCain had been caught, tried, convicted and sentenced for his treason. That vote was his last hostile act against America in a long string of them. No doubt a lot of republicans did sit out this round, feeling betrayed that obamacare still survives.

Every year starting in late August and ending sometime around late February, Hollywood is consumed with winning an eight-and-a-half-pound gold trophy. Even in a world overrun with awards shows, the Oscars remain the grandest prize, and a Best Picture victory cements filmmakers and actors’ place in history. It also means that, for the rest of time, a lot of people will complain that your movie wasn’t that great and should have lost to some other movie they felt was eminently more deserving. It’s very easy to second-guess the Academy on its Best Picture picks, but while putting together

$1,973 LEDs and the Green New Deal
Wall Street Journal, by Editorial    Original Article

The Green New Deal that Democrats unveiled last week has a grand ambition to eliminate fossil fuels in 10 years, retrofit every building in America, and guarantee high-paying jobs in the bargain. If you want to see how that works in the real world, consider the public housing projects near Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s New York office. The New York City Housing Authority (Nycha) has a more modest goal of a 30% reduction in greenhouse-gas emissions by 2027. As part of its plan, Nycha is switching to LED lighting,which lasts longer than incandescent bulbs and consumes less energy.

It’s fitting that William Barr’s confirmation as attorney general happened just as two powerful law-enforcement figures were trading accusations involving President Trump. Mr. Barr’s greatest challenge isn’t antitrust deals, immigration policy or even handling special counsel Robert Mueller. His overriding challenge is to reboot a Justice Department that has shredded its reputation and lost the confidence of Congress and the public. It’s hard to feel confident in law enforcement when a former deputy director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Andrew McCabe, reveals

VATICAN CITY—Cardinal Sean O’Malley of Boston, chief adviser to Pope Francis on protecting children from sexual abuse, called a meeting with top papal aides in 2017, concerned the Vatican wasn’t living up to its promise of “zero tolerance.” An appeals panel set up by the pope had reduced the punishments of a number of Catholic priests found guilty of abusing minors. In some cases, the panel canceled their dismissal from the priesthood and gave them short suspensions instead. “If this gets out, it will cause a scandal,” Cardinal O’Malley told Cardinal Secretary of State Pietro Parolin,

It is clear that the United States government, far more than the Russian one, interfered in the 2016 campaign. Figures throughout the Obama administration were using their power to investigate Hillary Clinton’s opponent and leaking that information to pols like Harry Reid and sympathetic members of the press to hurt Trump. Many of those figures — from John Brennan to James Comey to Susan Rice — appear on television these days displaying the very anti-Trump bias that drove their official actions during the campaign.

How many other people watched the entire 80 or 85 minutes of President Trump’s rally in El Paso, Texas, Monday night on Fox? The pre-rally expectation was that this event would be an effort to build support for the border wall. Instead, it obviously was a test-run of issues for the 2020 campaign, covering everything from A to Zzz. At 9:55 ET, Sean Hannity cut away from the speech to denounce the border deal emerging in Washington. Then it was back to the rally’s remaining 40 minutes. It was strangely mesmerizing.

The GOP Majority Leader in the Senate persuaded President Donald Trump to not veto the GOP’s flawed border security bill by promising to back a national emergency construction of border walls, according to insider leaks to the establishment media. The Washington Post reported that “Trump had been leaning against supporting the congressional spending bill but relented after several conversations with [Majority Leader Sen. Mitch] McConnell, who then announced his agreement to go along with an emergency declaration.” One reason for Trump’s last-minute opposition is that congressional leaders conducted the negotiations without significant White House involvement.

The two hottest commodities in the Democratic Party are Ilhan Omar and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Earlier this week, Omar exhibited stunning ignorance in her hostile questioning of Elliott Adams Abrams. Similarly, Ocasio-Cortez has often displayed a surprising lack of knowledge for someone who apparently is a college graduate. Don’t get me started on the “Green New Socialism.” But she outdid herself yesterday. The context was Amazon’s announcement that it would not, after all, build a second corporate headquarters in Long Island City, which I understand is close to, but not within, Ocasio-Cortez’s district.

WASHINGTON— What is happening to the Democrats? Captivated by a handful of liberal superstars, they are venturing where the party has long feared to tread: Steep taxes on the rich. Abolishing an immigration enforcement agency. Proposing "economic transformation" to combat climate change. Gleefully waving goodbye to a big business — and its jobs. On Thursday, newly-elected Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez led a chorus of cheers as Amazon announced it was abandoning plans to build a sought-after headquarters in New York City.
