Watch: Gowdy Grills Comey: You Know
People Who Leak Go To Prison, Right?

Daily Wire, by Hank Berrien

Original Article

Posted By:Lalo, 3/20/2017 6:01:41 PM

On Monday, Representative Trey Gowdy targeted FBI Director James Comey over the leaks coming from the intelligence community regarding former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn, saying bluntly, “The felonious dissemination of classified material most definitely is a crime.” Gowdy began by asking Comey if there is an exception in the law for current or former U.S. officials who request anonymity. Comey said there was, but when Gowdy amended the question to ask if reporters were granted such an exemption, Comey said, “That´s a harder question, as to whether a reporter incurs criminal liability by publishing classified information, and one probably beyond

Looking at Gowdy´s track record, I have no respect for him. He´s a grandstander, with nothing to show for it. Make no mistake about it. He´s good at running his mouth.

#1, we are definitely on different planets.

Gowdy was the ONLY one today standing up for the rule of law. He did his best to get the truth about Benghazi, but wa thwarted by the media and the entire DC intelligence community and Obama´s evil Administration.

If you know something I don´t--which I doubt--please share it.

I will stand up for Gowdy.

Gowdy should have told Comey if he is unable to find the leakers he should resign. I don´t buy for one minute they don´t know the leakers.

I´ve been intensely watching american politics for the last 50 years and I have never seen a congressman go after lying, hedging, America hating bureaucrats as hard as Chafetz and Gaudy. Now, if only our law enforcement types and judges would follow their examples!

Comey´s an awful person to have in charge of our FBI. I consider him to be one of those clever, sly, seemingly normal lunatics very much like the guy in Psycho. When you think of Comey, imagine Ted Bundy. Nuttier than a Snickers bar, friendly, innocent sounding, and dangerous as a rabid hyena.

Gowdy is smart as a whip and the only one with guts to really go after these people. Look at the others on the Benghazi committee (it was a committee- not just Trey Gowdy) and they let him carry the ball.

He was brilliant today.

Some parallels to Watergate.
The Leaker was the FBI agent in charge of investigation Mark Felt and WP´s Woodward and Bernstein lied to American public about "Deep Throat".
What did Comey know and when did he know it?

The brilliant showmanship means zero unless there are consequences for the bad guys. Republicans never have anything to show for the rhetoric. Oops, they use it as bragging rights at reelection time. Our side stops short of ever using their full authority because they are scared of the media. Let´s just be honest.

Since Comey is one of the possible leakers, should he be in charge of the alleged investigations -- which he won´t even say is happening?

If he did the leaking and was NOT investigating, would be we willing to say that there is no investigation or LIE to Congress that there was? Or do what he did, refuse to say?

I don´t trust hte man AT ALL.

Comedy should have been fired. Anyone with the slightest contact with the Obama administration should not be trusted. Now look at the mess he has created. Instead of a clean investigation partisanship seems to be the driving force. I do not trust him because he is not trustworthy. Anyone connected with Obama is suspect. As the Director of the FBI, he should be above reproach. Comey will use whatever means he can to harm the President. The sly innuendo, the parsing of words are all tools to be used to undermine PDJT.

Vice President Pence tried Saturday to deliver a pep-talk to Americans after fellow Republicans’ failed effort to overhaul ObamaCare -- admitting that members are “back to the drawing board” but vowing that President Trump will “keep fighting.” Pence spoke in the aftermath of House Speaker Paul Ryan on Friday cancelling the final vote for the ObamaCare replacement bill, upon concluding he didn’t have enough votes despite the chamber’s GOP majority. Republicans Ryan and Trump after announcing the cancellation, sounded as if efforts to fulfill campaign promises to repeal and replace the 2010 health care law were essentially finished. Ryan publicly said Americans would

Donald Trump crowed for months he would strike a "terrific" deal on health care. His ambitions ended in a brief phone call Friday afternoon, in which Speaker Paul Ryan told him the truth: He was nowhere close. The businessman president, who sold himself to tens of millions of disillusioned voters last year as the only outsider who could tame a broken capital, ended his first confrontation with lawmakers overmatched, outmaneuvered and ultimately empty-handed. “We learned a lot about some very arcane rules,” Trump said in the Oval Office soon after the defeat of his effort to undo President Obama’s

President Donald Trump, who has been widely criticized for only speaking with right-wing news outlets, called the Washington Post and the New York Times first on Friday to talk about the House Republicans health care bill. House Republicans pulled the Obamacare repeal bill on Friday after Speaker Paul Ryan (R., Wis.) told Trump they did not have enough votes to pass the bill. CNN Reporter Dylan Byers tweeted that Trump, "who says you can´t trust media," called the Washington Post and the New York Times first to discuss pulling the American Health Care Act.

President Trump and his advisers ought to study the collapse of the American Health Care Act. It´s a case study in how Beltway institutions—the so-called Swamp Trump pledged to drain—can herd a president and his party toward unpopular legislation and political defeat. Begin with this question: Why the rush to repeal and replace Obamacare? Yes, repealing the law has been a Republican priority since 2010. But Democrats had spent decades laying the groundwork for universal health care before finding themselves in control of the government in 2009. And even then, it took a year for the Affordable Care Act to

The Conservatives Made a Mistake

I fear the conservatives may have erred. Let´s accept that Paul Ryan´s healthcare bill wasn´t optimal. If the Congressional Budget Office was anywhere close to correct in its original estimations, the bill would have cut government spending by $12.5 trillion, cut taxes by $900 million, repealed Obamacare´s tax increases, and instituted the largest entitlement reform in the last thirty years. But yes, it´s true, it wasn´t full repeal. Indeed, as long as insurance companies are required to cover pre-existing conditions, government healthcare is with us, and the bill would not have changed that. And it is certainly fair to doubt whether

   

 



 
Paul Ryan thought Trump could woo
the Freedom Caucus. He was wrong
Washington Examiner, by Philip Wegman    Original Article
Posted By: Lalo- 3/25/2017 9:28:24     Post Reply
During a televised press conference, Paul Ryan just unraveled his cognitive dissidence. Against all evidence, the speaker had been hoping that President Trump could somehow cut a deal with the Freedom Caucus without making major concessions. He should´ve known better. "This is a disappointing day for us," Ryan told reporters shortly after pulling his American Healthcare Act. But for anyone paying close attention it wasn´t a surprising development. For months, Trump´s business acumen has been grossly exaggerated, and the stubbornness of the "hell-no caucus" underestimated. The subsequent failure of the American Healthcare Act reflects both basic arithmetic and recent history.

The defeat of the Republican healthcare plan to repeal Obamacare Friday has all of Washington discussing House Speaker Paul Ryan´s fate, but many lawmakers are standing by their speaker. "Speaker Ryan has all the support he´s ever had — and then some — in that room," Rep. Bradley Byrne, R-Ala., told the Washington Examiner about the meeting in which Ryan told his conference they would not be voting on the legislation Friday.

A major House committee chair dealt the Republican bill to replace the Affordable Care Act another blow as he announced Friday he would not be voting in favor of the plan as it is now written. Republican Rep. Rodney Frelinghuysen of New Jersey, chair of the House Appropriations Committee — which is tasked with appropriating discretionary federal funds — wrote on Facebook that he could not vote for the present iteration of the American Health Care Act. "Seven years after enactment of Obamacare, I wanted to support legislation that made positive changes to rescue healthcare in America," Frelinghuysen wrote. "Unfortunately, the legislation

Gov. Scott Walker of Wisconsin is calling on his GOP colleagues on Capitol Hill to move forward with the Trump administration’s plan to overhaul the nation’s health care system. “House members need to vote to repeal Obamacare today,” Mr. Walker said Friday on Twitter. “This is their chance to move process forward to get rid of the collapsing govt program.” Mr. Walker is chairman of the Republican Governors Association and also has strong ties to House Speaker Paul D. Ryan, who, along with President Trump, is lobbying lawmakers to get behind the Republican plan to move the nation away from Obamacare.

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

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

Donald Trump had heard enough about policy and process. It was Thursday afternoon and members of the House Freedom Caucus were peppering the president with wonkish concerns about the American Health Care Act—the language that would leave Obamacare’s “essential health benefits” in place, the community rating provision that limited what insurers could charge certain patients, and whether the next two steps of Speaker Paul Ryan’s master plan were even feasible—when Trump decided to cut them off."Forget about the little "stuff", Trump said, according to multiple sources in the room.

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

Health Reform: Friday´s decision to pull the American Health Care Act from the House floor because it lacked enough votes to pass was a culmination of months of bad decisions, poor planning, and terrible messaging by the GOP leadership in the House. This failure undermines not only the party´s credibility, but President Trump´s purported ability to "make great deals." Worse, it emboldens the left-wing "resistance." Back in early December, we warned in this space that the Republican´s ObamaCare repeal effort was "off to a bad start."

House Republicans scrapped a vote on their health care replacement plan on Friday after defections from both the right and center that made it clear the bill would not pass. President Trump tried to spin the setback as a defeat for Democrats who wouldn´t cross the aisle to support the bill — despite not making any entreaties to the minority party. Trump — who is the first president to enter office without any political or legislative experience — did seem to admit there was a bit of a learning curve when it came to such a complex issue.
