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.

The Russia Investigations: An Unfinished
Case Looks Weaker Than Ever

Political and legal danger for President Trump may be sharpening by the day, but the case that his campaign might have conspired with the Russian attack on the 2016 election looks weaker than ever. Trump has been implicated in ordering a scheme to silence two women ahead of Election Day in 2016 about the alleged sexual relationships they had with him years before. That is a serious matter, or it might have been in other times, but it is decidedly not a global conspiracy with a foreign power to steal the election.

In the Donald Trump era, some liberals are confounded by their affection for a figure they would otherwise despise. He is known to them, after all, as one of America’s most enthusiastic warmongers—and the man who first vaulted Sarah Palin to national fame. Yet for all his many episodes of villainy, it’s possible to concede the pleasures of his impish company, especially when he breaks ranks to join your political side. His current career as a pithy critic of the president had led liberal Twitter to endow him with a grudgingly affectionate moniker: He is “Woke Bill Kristol.”

The aim of the victims’ rights movement, which arose in the 1970s and has swept through every state in the union and changed federal laws in the years since, is often summed up simply: Crime victims have the right to be “informed, present and heard.” All these rights were trampled by Alexander Acosta, formerly the U.S. attorney in South Florida and currently U.S. secretary of labor, when he struck a secret deal with wealthy sex offender Jeffrey Epstein to shield Epstein from federal investigation and prosecution.Though Acosta was in possession of a 53-page draft indictment charging that the well-connected financier

Ten years ago, Bernard Madoff’s multibillion-dollar Ponzi scheme, the biggest fraud in U.S. history, shocked the financial world. It soon emerged that a forensic accountant, Harry Markopolos, had been alerting regulators for years to Mr. Madoff’s fraud, but no one had listened. At Mr. Markopolos’s urging, the Securities and Exchange Commission created a cash-for-tips program, designed to encourage reports of financial wrongdoing and prevent the lapses in oversight that gave Mr. Madoff free rein. Today, an entire industry is devoted to surfacing tips from company insiders and expert analysts who scrutinize corporate filings.

Robert Mueller looks to be approaching his endgame, and the press is alive with speculation as to how bad the special counsel’s report will be for President Trump. It’s also worth noticing how good Mr. Mueller has been to another president, Barack Obama, and his team. This benevolence was on display in the sentencing document the special counsel’s office filed on Tuesday for Mike Flynn. The former Trump national security adviser, we are told, has provided “substantial assistance,” sitting for 19 interviews that aided in “several ongoing investigations.” In light of this help, the Mueller team

France’s violent Yellow Vest protests are now about many domestic concerns, but it’s no accident that the trigger was a fuel-tax hike. Nothing reveals the disconnect between ordinary voters and an aloof political class more than carbon taxation. The fault line runs between anti-carbon policies and economic growth, and France is a test for the political future of emissions restrictions. France already is a relatively low-carbon economy, with per-capita emissions half Germany’s as of 2014. French governments have nonetheless pursued an “ecological transition” to further squeeze carbon emissions from every corner

Attorney Charles Harder defended more than 500 hours his firm spent that rang up a nearly $390,000 legal bill for the president and asked for an equal amount in sanctions as a deterrent against a “repeat filer or frivolous defamation cases.” Harder said the fees and penalties were earned because of the extraordinary nature of the defamation case.

Pastor John Gray, the leader of Relentless Church in Greenville, S.C., came under fire for presenting his wife, Aventer, with the expensive vehicle. A video that went viral, which has since been deleted, showed the pastor surprising his wife with the keys to the luxury vehicle last week, the Charlotte Observer reported.

While the job of a Green Beret entails eliminating U.S. enemies both here and abroad, one member of the 66-year-old special operations force is now being prosecuted for having done exactly that. According to reports, once-decorated Army Maj. Mathew L. Golsteyn has been charged in the premeditated murder of an Afghani bomb maker suspected of murdering two Marines. The charge stems from actions the former Green Beret took on the field while deployed eight years ago and words he spoke with Fox News host Bret Baier six years afterward.

Going all in on attacking President Trump isn’t proving to be a particularly effective business strategy for media outlets. The Weekly Standard, a 28-year old neoconservative institution, is reportedly headed towards dissolution after its founder, Bill Kristol, devoted almost three years of work to attacking the President and his supporters. It’s not just Kristol. The entire world of clickbait Trump-hate seems to be in jeopardy, including sites that cater to the liberal base.

President Donald Trump has bashed one of the loudest neoconservative ´Never Trumpers´, Bill Kristol, seizing on news that Kristol´s anti-Trump Weekly Standard magazine is folding. ´The pathetic and dishonest Weekly Standard, run by failed prognosticator Bill Kristol (who, like many others, never had a clue), is flat broke and out of business. Too bad. May it rest in peace!´ Trump tweeted on Saturday morning. It follows an announcement on Friday that the Weekly Standard, which Kristol co-founded in 1995, will be ceasing publication. Kristol, an avid Twitter user, responded to Trump´s tweet simply: ´@ me next time´. (Tweet/Photos) Trump´s attack

MSNBC host Joy Reid and her guest Elie Mystal spent a segment fantasizing about Ivanka Trump being in the “crosshairs” and openly scheming about how the best way to “get” President Donald Trump would be to go after his children.

A new study finds more than 40 percent of Americans have not been vaccinated and, in fact, don´t plan on it either.

People under the age of 45 were the least likely to report being vaccinated.

There would at least be a larger meaning to the Standard’s end if it were being killed because it was hostile to Donald Trump. But I do not believe that is the case.
