Chuck Schumer calls for chaos
New York Post, by Editorial

Original Article

Posted By:Pluperfect, 3/20/2017 4:34:57 AM

It’s right out of Charles Dickens’ “A Christmas Carol”: The ghost of Chuck Schumer past issuing a dire warning to today’s Senate minority leader. Back in 2013, recall, a GOP effort to defund ObamaCare in a federal spending bill led to a 16-day shutdown of the federal government. Democrats were irate (as they always are when Republicans advance their policies), and none more so than Schumer, who explained how his party was above the fray. “You know,” he said on ABC’s “This Week,” “we could do the same thing on immigration reform. We believe strongly in immigration reform. We could say, ‘We’re

He is counting on the press convincing the American people that it is the Republicans who are shutting down government because they will not give in to the Democrats.

To be "fair" to Schumer, his handlers probably pointed to Harry Reid and told Schumer he had an exercise equipment accident in his future if he didn´t toe the line.

Media Outlets Rally ‘Auntie
Maxine’ as Millennial Leader
Washington Free Beacon, by Madeleine Weast    Original Article
Posted By: Pluperfect- 3/25/2017 5:30:46     Post Reply
Media outlets have labeled Rep. Maxine Waters (D., Calif.) as the new Democratic leader for millennials to rally behind. Various publications have been revving up coverage of Waters as a millennial icon after the congresswoman abruptly left a confidential meeting with FBI Director James Comey, claiming he did not have any credibility. In late January, Elle magazine published an article titled, "Congresswoman Maxine Waters Will Read You Now." The article talks about Waters´ impressive "shade"–meaning the ability to underhandedly insult people–calling her "this week´s Shade Bae." "I´m tempted to elect Congresswoman Waters as this week´s Shade Bae, but shade is subtle. Waters doesn´t

GOP cave on Obamacare
repeal is the biggest broken
promise in political history
Washington Examiner, by Philip Klein    Original Article
Posted By: Pluperfect- 3/25/2017 5:09:20     Post Reply
Broken promises are as old as politics itself, and there are many famous examples of them in modern history. President George H.W. Bush´s "read my lips, no new taxes" pledge comes immediately to mind, as does President Bill Clinton reneging on his middle-class tax cut, and President Barack Obama never closing Guantanamo Bay. But in each of those cases, those were promises that were made in a given campaign by a given politician. The promise of Obamacare repeal is much different. Republicans ran on repealing and replacing Obamacare for seven years, over the course of four election cycles. They won the

Climate change helped

Independent [UK], by Ian Johnston    Original Article
Posted By: Pluperfect- 3/25/2017 5:01:14     Post Reply
Brexit was caused in part by climate change, former US Vice-President Al Gore has said, warning that extreme weather is creating political instability “the world will find extremely difficult to deal with”. Mr Gore, speaking at an event in which he previewed a sequel to his landmark 2006 documentary, An Inconvenient Truth, said the “principal” cause of the Syrian Civil War had been the worst drought in 900 years, which forced 1.5 million people to move from the countryside to the cities. There they met a similar number of Iraqis who had fled the conflict in their homeland, creating powder keg conditions

Now Republicans must move on
Trump’s ‘jobs, jobs, jobs’ agenda
New York Post, by Editorial    Original Article
Posted By: Pluperfect- 3/25/2017 4:54:34     Post Reply
OK: Republicans now stand exposed as badly divided on how to replace ObamaCare. So it’s time to move on with the “jobs, jobs, jobs” core of the Trump agenda. The bill Speaker Paul Ryan pulled from the floor Friday wasn’t good enough for most of the Freedom Caucus, but pleasing them would’ve lost other Republicans. Every GOP member of Congress has been damning ObamaCare for eight years — without working out with each other what they’re actually for. So it’s back to the drawing board (or the conference room). Maybe “living with ObamaCare for the foreseeable future” (as Ryan put it) will be

Democrats fail to cash in on Trump

A series of controversies and a stalled legislative agenda might be a drag on President Trump’s approval ratings, but campaign finance records show Democrats have failed to cash in on the chaos. Despite making a money pitch after every misstatement or errant tweet, the Democratic National Committee raised $6.4 million last month, compared to $9.5 million pulled in by the Republican National Committee, according to FEC reports filed Monday. Republicans got off to a good start with a record-setting $20 million haul in January, which is double the total raised by their Democratic counterpart in the first two months of 2017. To date,

The Cartel That Failed

Saudis, Russia, shale. That is all ye need to know in order to understand the oil market. The Saudis lead the OPEC oil cartel, Russia is their largest potential fellow traveler, and the Permian Basin in the Southwest is the oil-rich shale that stands between the other two and $100 per barrel oil. There was a time when the Saudi-led cartel of 13 oil producers could more or less control the price of oil. If the market got so high as to encourage the development of alternatives to oil, the Saudis would open the taps and increase production to bring prices

Liberals Suddenly Incensed About Budget
Process Obama Blew Off For Eight Years
PJ Media, by Jeff Reynolds    Original Article
Posted By: Pluperfect- 3/24/2017 4:42:45     Post Reply
The latest Leftist hypocrisy is in, and it´s a doozy. Progressives are losing their minds over President Trump´s budget proposal for all sorts of reasons. Under his legal obligation, President Trump submitted his proposed budget to Congress for approval. If you listen to the Democrat Media Complex, it will hurt the poor, the young, the elderly, the rural, the vulnerable, the arts, the sciences, Big Bird, and federal workers. In typical liberal self-unaware fashion, progressives fail to remember how President Obama blew off his legal obligation to submit a budget proposal by the statutory deadline in seven of his eight years

Time for US to stop funding
horrific UN ‘peacekeepers’
New York Post, by Betsy McCaughey    Original Article
Posted By: Pluperfect- 3/24/2017 4:36:10     Post Reply
Liberals shrieked last week when President Trump proposed cutting American funding for the United Nations by 50 percent. Trump dismisses the United Nations as a “waste of time and money.” That’s the least of it. US taxpayers bankroll the organization to the tune of $10 billion a year. Our hard-earned money perpetuates an organization that validates the most savage human-rights abusers on the globe, regularly votes against America and targets America’s ally Israel for extinction. The worst example of UN failure and waste, however, is its peacekeeping missions. Past American presidents have poured billions into UN peacekeeping operations that have propped up autocratic

House sets risky health care

WASHINGTON — In a gamble with monumental political stakes, Republicans set course for a climactic House vote on their health care overhaul after President Donald Trump claimed he was finished negotiating with GOP holdouts and determined to pursue the rest of his agenda, win or lose. House Speaker Paul Ryan set the showdown for Friday, following a nighttime Capitol meeting at which top White House officials told GOP lawmakers that Trump had decided the time for talk was over. "We have been promising the American people that we will repeal and replace this broken law because it´s collapsing and it´s

I´m considering making each entry in this space for the next several weeks a continuation of the argument that today’s modern Left and the Democrat Party it drives is a movement by and for people incapable of doing a proper job. This wasn’t always true, mind you. Not completely. After all, it was Democrats who ran the antebellum South, and their idea of running a successful economy was forced agricultural labor to benefit a medieval-style aristocracy. But on the other hand, the Left demonstrated quite often in the past that it was awfully good at winning political arguments — so good,

President must close the ‘deal’ on Obamacare
Boston Herald, by Adriana Cohen    Original Article
Posted By: Pluperfect- 3/23/2017 5:27:43     Post Reply
President Trump is facing the first crucial test of his presidency — repealing and replacing Obamacare — and he needs to apply the negotiating chops and deal-making skills he bragged about in his bestselling book, “The Art of the Deal,” to fixing our broken health-care system. And given his low approval ratings, he needs a win. Dealing with the Obamacare mess has been the core focus of the Republican party for the past 7 years — not to mention a major campaign promise that helped propel Donald Trump to the White House. So it’s imperative that the president seal the deal and

The publicity-hungry New York Times-leaker and failed — yes, failed — former U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara just landed a gig at NYU Law and the press is acting as though the school just hired the offspring of Thurgood Marshall and Clarence Darrow. Hardly. In fact, relentlessly self-promoting Bharara, who in real life makes scenery-chewing Paul Giamatti´s U.S. Attorney Chuck Rhoades on "Billions" look like a fame-a-phobe, has spent his career so successfully selling his failures as huge successes, his cowardice against Wall Street as triumphs, that he should have either won salesman of the year or maybe indicted himself for

GOP health-care bill: House

House Republican leaders abruptly pulled a Republican rewrite of the nation’s health-care system from consideration on Friday, a dramatic acknowledgment that they are so far unable to repeal the Affordable Care Act. “We just pulled it,” President Trump told The Washington Post in a telephone interview. The decision came a day after President Trump delivered an ultimatum to lawmakers — and represented multiple failures for the new president and House Speaker Paul D. Ryan (R-Wis.). The decision means the Affordable Care Act remains in place, at least for now, and a major GOP campaign promise goes unfulfilled. It also casts

Democrats plan to filibuster Neil Gorsuch’s nomination for the Supreme Court, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-New York) said Thursday. Speaking on the Senate floor Thursday morning, Schumer said Gorsuch -- who is three days into his confirmation hearings with the Senate Judiciary Committee -- will need 60 votes to be confirmed. Currently, the Senate has 52 Republicans and 48 Democrats. “After careful deliberation, I have concluded that I cannot support judge Neil Gorsuch’s nomination to the Supreme Court,” he said. “His nomination will have a cloture vote. He will have to earn 60 votes for confirmation. My vote will

In the last three months of the Obama presidency, significant personal information from and about the Trump transition was collected and widely disseminated at intelligence agencies, according to House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes. Dozens of intelligence reports provided to Nunes by an unnamed whistleblower were floating around during the sensitive transition period following the election, he said. The information collection itself may have technically been legal, but the failure to properly mask the information “alarmed” the California congressman, who notified the White House of the surveillance and dissemination of information on Wednesday afternoon. Many of the reporters present didn’t seem to

British Lawmaker Lord Digby Jones does not believe the religion of the London attacker is pertinent, The Washington Post reports. Jones comments come in the wake of a tweet by Donald Trump Jr. criticizing London Mayor Sadiq Khan for once telling citizens that terrorist attacks are “part and parcel” part of living in a big city. Some British lawmakers drew offense from the tweet, saying Trump was attacking the mayor in the midst of a terrorist situation. “You’re safer in London than you’ve ever been,” Jones declared. He continued, “If this turns out to be an act of Islamic terrorism,

Republican officials in Congress and the White House are now openly discussing finding a GOP replacement to Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) as Speaker of the House, after Ryan failed to pass the American Health Care Act out of the House and misled the public and President Donald Trump when he promised repeatedly the bill would pass. Ryan was caught on an audio file from October—obtained by Breitbart News and published a couple weeks ago—saying he is “not going to defend Donald Trump—not now, not in the future.” While the audio file does not make the comments clear, Ryan’s staff later claimed

BRUSSELS—Republican Senator John McCain revealed he hasn’t met the President Donald Trump in person since he took office, and he urged Trump to reach out to his opponents—Democratic and otherwise—ala Ronald Reagan if he wants to repeal Obamacare. “Do some outreach. Get to know some of these Democratic leaders,” he said. “You can find common ground.” McCain said he’d met Trump “some years ago” when he was a businessman, but had not met him since. McCain said he did speak “almost daily” to National Security Adviser Lt. Gen. H.R. McMaster and Defense Secretary Jim Mattis, however. “He doesn’t seem to

Alphonse Maddin worked as a truck driver for TransAm Trucking. Like a lot of Americans, he did the kind of hard work that puts food on the table, and pays the bills and the taxes. The work that people like Maddin do every day may not receive lots of media attention, but our economy will not function without it. Such workers do not ask for a lot in return, just to be treated fairly and with dignity under our laws. Unfortunately, even that modest expectation has too often gone unfulfilled in recent years.

We live in a time of “fake news” awareness, so you’d think that someone at the Los Angeles Times would know better than to publish a headline like this: “Just like her mother, Chelsea Clinton never gets a break” Let’s leave the aside the reference to Hillary Clinton, who magically was able to turn $1,000 into $100,000 in cattle futures with no regulatory consequence and delete 30,000 evidentiary emails without prosecution.

Republican Gov. Larry Hogan’s remarks came as the assault last Thursday by two immigrants, at least one of whom is in the U.S. illegally, has become a flashpoint for parents worried that the county’s “sanctuary” status for illegal immigrants exposes their school children to danger.“I’m not sure I can give assurances that their children will be safe,” he said.
