  • Cruz Rescues Republicans on Obamacare

    Republicans are finally getting smart on Obamacare. It took one of the savviest Republican senators -- Ted Cruz of Texas, with an assist from Mike Lee of Utah -- to get the GOP to figure out how to replace Obamacare, reduce premiums and save money for the government, all without alienating millions of voters. He's pulled the Republicans' fannies out of the fire, flipping a losing strategy into a big-time winner. The Cruz amendment -- which has been inserted into the GOP Senate health plan -- is smart, because it doesn't take anything away from anyone. If you want Obamacare,...

    For months now, the country has waited with interminable patience to see what the Trump Administration would do with healthcare policy. Few believed the Affordable Care Act—Obamacare—was ever a perfect solution, and Republicans spent 7 years campaigning on its immediate repeal. But even though several healthcare exchanges are collapsing and millions around the country are in danger of losing healthcare services provided by Obamacare, Republicans have had a difficult time figuring out how to go from the party of “no Obamacare” to the party of healthcare solutions. After much wrangling, the House eventually passed a bill that was imperfect in...
  • Carrier workers facing layoffs feel betrayed by Trump

    06/25/2017 2:27:19 PM PDT · by Angels27 · 73 replies
    A promise made before Christmas is fizzling before the Fourth of July. In December, then-President-elect Trump told hundreds of workers at the Carrier manufacturing plant that he had worked out a deal to save their jobs. But it's not working out that way. A steady downpour today did little to wash away the fact that the jobs of 600 union employees are going south. "They're going to Monterrey, Mexico," said Robert James, president of the local union. Reynolds said he felt betrayed, since Mr. Trump told workers during his December visit to the plant that 1,100 jobs would be saved....

    We have been had again. We are told when we get the House, the Senate and the Presidency we can get this country straightened out. Well we see what is happening, NOTHING, just the same old thing. As the Democrat party swings hard left the Republicans are whining, " We just can't do anything because of the Democrats." That is just BS of the highest order. What we have in the Republican party is a harem for the K Street crowd. Bought and paid for by the money they thirst for daily. Political whores doing exactly what the K Street...

    Breitbart ^ | April 26, 2017 | Ann Coulter
    No one voted for Trump because of the “Access Hollywood” tape. They voted for him because of his issues; most prominently, his promise to build “a big beautiful wall.” And who’s going to pay for it? MEXICO! You can’t say that at every campaign rally for 18 months and then not build a wall. Do not imagine that a Trump double-cross on the wall will not destroy the Republican Party. Oh, we’ll get them back. No, you won’t. Trump wasn’t a distraction: He was the last chance to save the GOP. Millions of Americans who hadn’t voted in 30 years...

    Politico has revealed the true price President Obama was willing to pay to secure the nuclear arms deal with Iran. In order to do so, Obama dropped charges against Amin Ravan, an arms smuggler responsible for the deaths of hundreds of U.S. soldiers fighting in Iraq. Daily Mail has the details: Ravan, U.S. authorities believed, was involved with providing Iran with components of bombs that Shiite militias used over a long period of time.

    Conservative Review ^ | 04/07/2017 | Robert Eno
    After a tumultuous first 75 days in office, there are reports that President Donald Trump is looking at a major shakeup of his inner circle. Mike Allen, reporting at Axios, reported that both Reince Priebus and Steve Bannon may be out. Priebus as chief of staff has been a mistake from the beginning. Any schadenfreude conservatives may feel over this development should be tempered by thoughts of what may come next. The four names reported by Allen are all creatures of the swamp Trump professes to want to drain. With the failure to repeal Obamacare marring the start of Trump’s...

    Conservatives in Congress need to go on the offensive NOW and stop the Democrats with an offensive. STOP playing defense and go after them! Now. If you do not, we are going to lose the ability to govern this country, and, if the liberal, leftists take over again they will go after every conservative in this country with a vengeance (potential civil war foundations developing). Do something NOW. You are responsible.

    The United Nations “human rights” apparatus is being accused of, among other abuses, handing to the Communist Chinese dictatorship the names of activists who were set to expose the regime's crimes at a UN review of China's record. One of the dissidents in question ultimately died in detention. At least several other Chinese dissidents whose identities were reportedly provided to the regime by UN officials were also detained ahead of their trips to Geneva, according to reports. And then, making matters worse, the UN “human rights” leadership appears to have retaliated against the UN whistleblower who finally exposed and stopped...
  • Bureaucrats Gone Wild, Bring In 526 More Refugees on Thursday

    Breitbart ^ | January 26, 2017 | Michael Patrick Leahy
    Bureaucrats at the State Department brought in an additional 526 refugees in the seventeen hours between midnight and 5 p.m. eastern on Thursday. The continued inflow is a bureaucratic challenge against President Trump’s campaign promise to temporarily ban refugees from Syria and other countries hostile to the United States. Press reports on Tuesday said Trump was expected to sign an executive order announcing a four-month temporary ban on refugees from all countries, starting some time this week. An additional executive order, reports indicated, is expected to block visas from seven Middle Eastern countries: Syria, Sudan, Somalia, Yemen, Libya, Iran, and...

    Former Alaska governor and 2008 vice-presidential candidate Sarah Palin was a guest on the special Thanksgiving holiday edition of Breitbart News Daily with SiriusXM host Alex Marlow. Palin said the 2016 election was vindication for “me and millions of other Americans who, for years and years, have been saying smaller, smarter government is the answer, and we need someone who is politically incorrect enough to say what needs to be said, and do what needs to be doin’, to fix the problems that we’re in in our nation.”Marlow said he thought Trump’s campaign theme of “draining the swamp” in DC...

    Paul Ryan spoke out against Republican nominee Donald Trump ALL YEAR. Ryan announced in October he was pulling his endorsement of Donald Trump. He held a separate press conference to tell reporters he would not campaign with Donald Trump. Paul Ryan cannot be trusted. He is loyal to the elites and not the people. Paul Ryan is pro-amnesty, open border, pro-TPP and anti-American worker. Donald Trump won an historic election on Tuesday winning over 300 electoral votes. On Wednesday Rep. Chris Collins (R-NY) went on with Lou Dobbs on Wednesday after Donald Trump’s historic win. Collins told Lou Republican lawmakers...

    The State Department painted it as an elegant way out of a ballooning crisis involving Chinese dissident Chen Guangcheng — but by day’s end, it looked like a disgraceful performance by US diplomats. Initial reports had Chen so pleased by the deal that he told Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, “I want to kiss you.” The agreement Clinton negotiated with Beijing yesterday supposedly allowed Cheng to stay in China and get medical attention, with the authorities guaranteeing his future safety. But things started unraveling just hours after the compromise was inked. First, while State claims Chen never wanted to leave...

    No good deed goes unpunished; this must be what US Ambassador to China Gary Locke must have been thinking as a firestorm of criticism erupted over his embassy’s handling of the Chen Guangcheng case. Under great pressure, with Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner arriving for high profile talks with China’s leadership, the embassy and colleagues in the State Department including Assistant Secretary of State for East Asian Affairs Kurt Campbell had negotiated a delicate deal with Chinese counterparts that Chen accepted. Negotiated with the involvement of top legal scholar Jerome Cohen, and based on a...

    Communication between the Holy See and the People’s Republic of China “continues with a spirit of goodwill on both parts” and aims to seek “realistic solutions for the good of everyone”. Watertight confirmation of the important step in the dialogue between Beijing and the Holy See is given by His Holiness’s Secretary of the State, Cardinal Pietro Parolin, himself. In a wide-spanning interview with Stefania Falasca of Italian Catholic newspaper Avvenire, the cardinal from Vicenza who is head of Vatican diplomacy, outlines the criteria and objectives of the Holy See in its present relations with representatives of the Chinese government....

    ‘Politicians lie. Everybody knows that. Well, did you know the lies our leaders are telling these days are bolder and more brazen than ever and that they threaten to imperil the quality of American life for generations to come? A President looks straight into the camera and promises the people “if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor” knowing full well that is a promise ObamaCare cannot keep. After conceding over twenty times that a president cannot alter our immigration policies because “we’re a nation of laws” and the president’s “job is to execute the laws that are...
