  • Let the Market Fix Health Care

    02/20/2017 7:03:22 AM PST · by Kaslin · 32 replies ^ | February 20, 2016 | Ken Blackwell
    Republicans agree that Obamacare has failed and must be repealed. But they can’t agree on the replacement “plan.” The one thing they shouldn’t do is devise another grand scheme like the Obama “plan.” The answer is not a new and better big government “plan.” Instead, the president and Congress should take specific actions to free the market so patients and providers can create a health care system that serves everyone. When President Barack Obama proposed his federal takeover of the healthcare system, he was right about one thing: American medical care was a mess. Government provided half the funding, created...

    resident Barack Obama went up to Capitol Hill on Wednesday to counsel congressional Democrats on how to save Obamacare. Or at least that's how his visit was billed. But to judge from the responses of some of the Democrats, his advice was typical of the approach he's taken to legislation in his eight years as president -- which is to say disengaged, above the fray, detached from any detailed discussion of how legislation actually works. He was "very nostalgic," said Louise Slaughter, a veteran of 30 years in the House and the ranking Democrat on the House Rules Committee. But,...

    Obama is proud of himself. He and his devoted followers believe he has left America in better shape than when he found it. Wrong. To avoid the accusation of bias and (fake) "fake news," let's use the mainstream news media and government websites, in almost every case, to prove that Obama and his core followers are misjudging their own country and the world. Foreign Affairs 1. His Benghazi policy was deadly for four Americans.These deaths happened in September 2012, before his re-election, so the DNC had to adopt a false narrative about a video because terrorist groups were supposedly in...

    resident Obama gave a "nostalgic" speech about Obamacare to Democrats on Wednesday, but was light on specific strategies to save it, according to a Democrat in the meeting. Obama met with House and Senate Democrats Wednesday to reminisce about the law, which Republicans have already started efforts to dismantle. Rep. Louise Slaughter, D-N.Y., told reporters Obama gave a "very nostalgic" speech but said he would leave it up to them to map out a strategy to prevent Republicans from destroying the law. Slaughter also noted Democrats will be united in not working on any replacement. "We don't even think of...

    Of all Barack Obama's costumes, the most ill-fitting is that of the hawk. The guise doesn't work for all sorts of ideological and historical reasons. Plus there's the fact that he's rushing to put on the outfit as he's heading out the door. The new sanctions against Russia are fine with me on the merits, even if they are remarkably tardy and being sold in no small part for domestic, political reasons. Russian President Vladimir Putin has been undermining American interests for a long time now. From the annexation of Crimea and a shadow war in Ukraine to his unabashed...

    resident Obama will give his farewell and good riddance speech on January 10 in Chicago, the town where the community organizer-in-chief began his political rise. He will attempt once again to cement his legacy by recreating history in his image. He will make his speech against the background of what is arguably the world’s most beautiful skyline and the world’s most hideous violence. Chicago, one of the toughest gun control cities in the United States, ended 2016 with 762 homicides, the most in two decades and more than Los Angeles and New York City combined.

    Barack Obama is not a standard American president.

Secretary of State John Kerry’s speech on Wednesday was the second. On January 15, stage 3 will commence in Paris. At France’s lame duck President Francois Hollande’s international conference, the foreign ministers of some fifty states are expected to adopt as their own the anti-Israel principles Kerry set forth in his speech. The next day it will be Obama’s turn. Obama can be expected to use the occasion of Martin Luther King Jr. Day to present the Palestinian war to...

    The Obama administration appears to be attempting to provoke the Russians into a confrontation once again. This apparent attack on Russia is in reality an attack on Donald Trump. Andrea Mitchell reported that the Obama administration is taking steps to “box in” president-elect Donald Trump so the sanctions are not easily reversible. This provocation will include economic sanctions, 'diplomatic censure' and clandestine cyber attacks. The excuse for this provocation is the alleged Russian interference in the U.S. election. How can Donald Trump be sworn in as president if the Russians in effect chose him as our next president? The campaign...

    In June 2008, presidential candidate Barack Obama gave a stirring speech to AIPAC, making strong commitments to the Jewish people and Israel. In December 2016, President ObamaÂ’s Secretary of State John Kerry delivered an important policy speech that directly contradicted some of candidate ObamaÂ’s words. The contrast is striking, unnerving, and downright hypocritical.To be fair, there is some consistency between the speeches, as both advocate a two-state solution, among other parallels. And on a certain level, President Obama has kept some of the commitments he made to Israel, including massive defense contracts and military aid. And it is true that,...

    Obamacare is in the crosshairs. We have known this for a while. Congressional Republicans have attempted dozens of times to pass legislation to repeal the Affordable Care Act—all of which have been stopped by either Obama’s veto or Harry Reid when he was Senate Majority Leader. Now, the GOP controls Congress and they will soon control the White House, with a man who said he plans to repeal and replace Obamacare. Most of Obama’s legacy is regulatory. It can be rolled back—and he seems to know this because he plans to meet with Congressional Democrats next week to discuss ways...

    I am not surprised at President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry's parting insults to Israel, but they are nonetheless unconscionable. Thank goodness Obama is on the way out and the restoration of our relationship will soon begin. It wasn't enough for Obama to betray Israel by abstaining from voting on, rather than vetoing, a Dec. 23 United Nations Security Council resolution condemning Israeli settlements in the West Bank and east Jerusalem as illegal. Kerry delivered an extraordinarily condescending speech maligning Israel for the settlements, saying they have jeopardized peace in the Middle East. Amazingly, people still blindly...

    The phoniest and most irresponsible lie in current politics is Obama's accusation that "the Russians did it!" Dropped Hillary's email bombs, that is. This was originally just attributed to the CIA and FBI at secondhand, and later those agencies reluctantly agreed. But we all know how badly Obama has corrupted those agencies, and their kowtowing to the Big Boss means nothing. This is sad but true.

    Obama has been perceived for the better part of the past eight years by many of the world's leadership as a spineless and weak leader, never feeling comfortable or really knowing how to implement the art of statesmanship. Obama caved in to Putin, the leader of Russia, and caved in to Assad, the embattled leader of Syria. China, Iran, North Korea, and Libya have all exhibited nothing but contempt for Obama, who always backed down, stood down, and generally did nothing more than wag his presidential tail. And then there was Israel. The objective of the recent Obama-concocted Security Council...

    A headline that would become famous appeared in the New York Daily News in October 1975 after then-President Gerald Ford denied federal assistance to spare the city from bankruptcy. It read: "Ford to City: Drop Dead." President Obama has told Israel much the same. By instructing his U.N. ambassador not to veto a resolution condemning Israel for building so-called settlements on disputed land, the president has aided and comforted that nation's enemies. The U.S. abstention will inevitably invite stepped-up attacks against Israelis, as well as calls for more boycotts by the European Union, whose ugly anti-Semitic past and present is...

    For reasons beyond my comprehension, friends of the Jewish state both here and in Israel are shocked and dismayed over last Friday’s U.S. veto abstention at the UN. But hold the presses. If Israel’s claims, which they profess to be ironclad, are true, the passage of UNSC resolution 2334 is just the tip of the iceberg in the ever-widening breach of American/Israeli relations. The real story may be that the Obama administration orchestrated the resolution and colluded with New Zealand and such democratic stalwarts as Malaysia, Senegal, and Venezuela to present it to the Security Council. If this proves correct,...

    resident Barack Obama likes to see himself as a moral leader. "The arc of the moral universe is long," Obama likes to say, quoting Martin Luther King Jr, "but it bends toward justice." According to Obama, Obama is a genteel representative of decency and good grace, a man pointing America toward a broader vision, a fellow questing for social justice and contextual consideration. In reality, he's a narcissistic fool. And like Burgess Meredith's character in "The Twilight Zone," he will be left standing in the ruins, bewailing the fates that abandoned him, leaving no worshipful admirers upon whom to lean....

The accord was never submitted to Congress as a treaty. It will be ignored by President-elect Trump. "Achieving the Iran nuclear deal."

    The Roman historian Suetonius recounts that in his waning days, the emperor Tiberius had grown “thoroughly disgusted with himself” having besmirched the honors and successes of his youth with extravagant devotion to a great variety of sexual perversions, interspersed with the paranoid murder and persecution of enemies, real and perceived. Recognizing that history would not look kindly upon him, Tiberius cast about for a solution. What he came up with condemned his country to madness and tyranny, but indeed improved his own image. Tiberius adopted the son of the man he probably murdered to ascend to emperor, the obviously sadistic...
  • All The President’s Migrants

    Migrants from China (2,130); Russia (1,863) and Armenia (448) were caught at the U.S.-Mexico border in 2016—and President Obama is priming them—along with migrants from Syria and South America, to vote for Hillary.  $10 million in taxpayer dollars were recently repackaged by the Obama administration’s U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) into “citizenship integration grants.” The funds were distributed to various organizations that help register migrant voters, including in the key swing states of Florida and Ohio, reported Judicial Watch.  The Obama administration also expanded the unconstitutional Central American Minors (CAM) program to include protection from deportment for individuals...

    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: Here's an exclusive story that's running on Reuters today. The headline: "White House Plans Community-Based Prevention of Violent Ideologies." Really? What are violent ideologies and who gets to determine that? Who gets to define what is a violent ideology? We know what this is. Here are the details. "A new White House plan aims to convene teachers and mental health professionals to intervene and help prevent Americans from turning to violent ideologies, work that is currently mostly done by law enforcement, a draft of the policy seen by Reuters shows. "The 18-page plan, to be announced on...

    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: I mean, there isn't any question all of this is rigged. Even George Will, who despises the Trumpster, had to admit that Trump's right about this. And the evidence that George Will cites -- we have it coming up in the sound bites -- is these people, the Democrats, go to the end of the earth, the end of the world, to prevent voter registration rolls from being purged of dead people. The Democrats do everything they can to ensure that people who are dead or illegal immigrants or whatever are on voter registration rolls. That alone...

    Negotiators from more than 170 countries on Saturday reached a legally binding accord to counter climate change by cutting the worldwide use of a powerful planet-warming chemical used in air-conditioners and refrigerators. -snip-While the Paris agreement included pledges by nearly every country to cut emissions of heat-trapping carbon dioxide from the fossil fuels that power vehicles, electric plants and factories, the new Kigali deal has a single target: chemical coolants called hydrofluorocarbons, or HFCs, used in air-conditioners and refrigerators.-snip-And while the Paris pledges are broad, they are also voluntary, often vague and dependent on the political will of future world...
  • What You Do Know Can Also Hurt You

    We live in the information age, which is called that for the same reason the ice age got its name: an overwhelming proliferation of the stuff. We automatically assume that more information is better than less. But as the dinosaurs learned about ice, even something useful can be dangerous in excess. The lesson is, so far, lost on most lawmakers and regulators. In July, President Barack Obama signed a bill requiring foods containing genetically modified organisms to be labeled as such. It's an outwardly innocuous requirement that is supposed to leave consumers better informed but will actually cause many...
  • #NoShame: Obama Leaves US Taxpayers a $9,000,000,000,000 Tab

    When Barack Obama leaves office in January 2017, he can look in the mirror and proudly tell himself that it was he who amassed more federal debt than the 43 men who stood before him, combined.  Just after calling Americans lazy and racist, it is he who holds the honor of plunging the United States into to it's worst debt crisis ever. As of Monday, October 3rd, Obama has officially signed enough lucrative business deals, foreign ransom payments, and government healthcare extensions to create a $19,573,444,713,936.79 federal debt.  That is exactly $9,000,000,000,000 more than when he took office in 2009.  A graph produced...

    Americans who enjoy fishing, hunting, and other wilderness sports should be aware of a number of important issues before stepping into the voting booth in November. Despite objections from many prominent Hawaiians and a federal regional fishing council, President Barack Obama recently quadrupled the size of the Papahanaumokuakea Marine National Monument (PMNM), first created by President George W. Bush in 2006. Obama used his executive authority under the Antiquities Act of 1906 to extend the marine reserve’s boundaries, banning fishing and mining in the 200-mile exclusive economic zone surrounding the reserve, which covers much of the northwestern islands of Hawaii...
  • From Congress To Obama, A Dis Best Served Cold

    "Congress' overwhelming rebuke of President Barack Obama on a bill allowing 9/11 victims to sue the government of Saudi Arabia -- and the bitter finger-pointing that followed -- was a fitting coda to the dysfunctional relationship between the Obama White House and Capitol Hill." But it was the headline -- which she probably did not write -- that really completed the picture: "Congress disses Obama one last time." That word, "disses," is just too perfect. For eight years the press has treated Obama like the protagonist in some stage play, personalizing his policy struggles as a heroic effort of one...

    Hillary Clinton is the worst kind of political animal, one who will exploit anything for political gain, distort facts and shift her positions at will for votes, significantly more than your garden-variety pandering politician. Remember when Clinton was for the Iraq War and then later savaged anyone who believed as she had as if they were reprobates? Remember when she opined that marriage is between a man and a woman? Remember her claim that she left the White House "not only dead broke but in debt"? Her pathetically laughable yarn that she came under sniper fire in Bosnia in the...
