    Republican legislators in the House of Representatives have pushed back a vote to repeal Obamacare until next week, it was reported on Thursday. That means President Donald Trump's hopes for a major legislative 'win' before the expiration of his first 100 days in office appear to be on life support. Trump was eager to resuscitate an earlier Republican bid to pass a health care bill that would have replaced the Affordable Care Act, the signature piece of legislation passed by his predecessor, Barack Obama.< But House Speaker Paul Ryan and his senior GOP colleagues failed to muster the necessary number...

    First, Humana pulled out of Obamacare for 2018. Then, Wellmark announced it was leaving. Which health insurer could be next? The failure of the GOP health care plan in Congress and the ongoing uncertainty surrounding the Trump administration's next moves have left insurers skittish about participating in the Obamacare exchanges next year. Certainly, Obamacare was troubled before President Trump took office. But many experts, including the Congressional Budget Office, felt Obamacare was stable overall. Certainly, Obamacare was troubled before President Trump took office. Several major insurers scaled back their involvement on the exchanges, while others hiked premiums to cover their...

    As Republicans prepare to vote on their health care bill, which does not fully repeal Obamacare, a number of Republicans say it’s a mistake to put their names to the plan: “Just let Obamacare collapse, then challenge the Democrats to come in and help us fix the mess they created,” Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) told Fox News Friday morning, as lawmakers debated the latest iteration of the bill on the House floor. “President Trump’s going to be judged by the outcome of the legislation, and what I see in the House, I don’t think this legislation is going to move...
  • Rachael Maddow’s Ratings Drop After Trump Tax Form Scoop

    MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow had the “story of the century” when she reported on President Donald Trump’s tax returns. It turned out to be two pages of his tax returns from 2005, showing he paid $38 million in taxes on a 25 percent tax rate. The lead-in to her program was akin to a complex form of clickbait, a bait-and-switch tactic to gain more viewers and audience. Fellow journalists and viewers were unhappy for Maddow promoting the story in the manner that she did. Maddow, speaking on NBC’s “Tonight Show” with Jimmy Fallon, seemingly agreed with Fallon that the report was...

    Tuesday on his nationally syndicated radio show, conservative talker Rush Limbaugh declared Monday’s “Not My President’s Day” protests to be a failure. According to Limbaugh, this protest and other movements are losing steam because they are having little impact on President Donald Trump and will continue to diminish as they begin to be ignored by most of the public.

    House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) sounded like a spokeswoman for an old Verizon ad campaign. "Can you hear?" she continuously said to the crowds gathered Monday night on the steps of the Supreme Court. As top Democratic leaders held a protest against President Donald Trump's executive order on immigration, the microphone they used did not work properly. The crowds could not hear what was being said so resorted to chants including "Lock him up!" in reference to Trump. "Look at that moon. It's a new moon. All right, can you hear me now?" Pelosi said at one point. She...

    One of the Obama administration’s signature efforts in education, which pumped billions of federal dollars into overhauling the nation’s worst schools, failed to produce meaningful results, according to a federal analysis. Test scores, graduation rates and college enrollment were no different in schools that received money through the School Improvement Grants program — the largest federal investment ever targeted to failing schools — than in schools that did not.

    Even though Obama’s presidency comes to an end Friday, The Great Revision has long been underway. Obama and the mainstream media have been spreading falsehoods and fantasies about his record. Last year, I co-wrote and published a comprehensive takedown of Obama’s presidency so that America wouldn’t be so easily fooled. Here are five failures that stand in stark contrast to the fictions Obama has been spreading about his legacy:1. Job growth was actually badObama fancies himself a great president for the economy, citing “record job growth” and a low unemployment rate as proof. What he won’t tell you is that...

    OBAMA: "Well, I — I — what it indicated was something that we kept on seeing throughout my presidency, and that was a tactical decision on the part of Republicans to say no because their view was that if they said yes, and there was any sort of bipartisan cooperation, that would benefit me politically. And if there wasn’t, that would hurt me politically particularly at a time when the economy was doing poorly. They figured we could do pretty good with midterms if it seems as if Washington’s dysfunctional at a time when everybody’s hurting."

    As President Obama makes preparations to exit The White House, he leaves in his wake a legacy of debt, a broken healthcare system, and a regulatory burden that has crippled American business. Despite the obvious mess he's made as president, he continues to defend his actions. However, the numbers don't lie.

  • Piers Morgan to Meryl Streep: Anti-Trump speech was ‘worst performance of your career’

    Columnist and admitted Meryl Streep fan Piers Morgan said the actress’ anti-Donald Trump rant delivered during Sunday night’s Golden Globes was “easily” the worst performance of her career. In his column Monday for The Daily Mail, Mr. Morgan lamented the “stench of hypocrisy” throughout Ms. Streep’s speech that condemned the president-elect and accused him of bullying others. “She began by saying that Hollywood, foreigners and the press are ‘the most vilified segments of American society right now,’” Mr. Morgan wrote. “At which point the cameras panned out to hundreds of the richest, most privileged people in American society sitting in...

    Alec Baldwin attempted to mock President-elect Donald Trump’s slogan, Make America Great Again, but failed miserably. On Friday, the 58-year-old actor shared a photo on Instagram with his 190,000 followers. In the shot he was wearing a red ball cap with Russian lettering that was supposed to say “Make America Great Again” But instead of mocking Trump, the actor’s joke backfired since the hat was mistranslated and grammatically incorrect, according to Fox News’s Julie Roginsky. When she was asked about what the hat actually translated to she responded that the words were “all wrong.”

This needs to go far and wide this holiday season! The pilgrims learned a tough lesson - that capitalism feeds far more than socialism. You've probably never heard this part of our country's history!

    Given American policymakers' ignorance of Islam, "I am just worried about people like me running around with big theories trying to set foreign policy," stated famed intellectual historian Francis Fukuyama in Washington, D.C. His confession occurred at "Democracy in the Arab World: The Obama Legacy and Beyond," a recent conference that did little to alleviate the knowledge deficit among hackneyed Islamism apologists. Fukuyama's luncheon address at the downtown JW Marriot luxury hotel focused on the cultural factors that aided the development of modern societies. While China benefited from the appearance 2,300 years ago of the "first modern, relatively impersonal state,"...

    The New Republic ^ | November 10, 2016 | Sarah Jones
    Clinton’s campaign strategy, especially when it came to appealing to white women, indicates that she and her staffers didn’t quite grasp these dynamics. Her campaign employed a candy-colored brand of female empowerment seemingly based on the assumption that white women’s political priorities are influenced by the pop culture they consume. White working-class women weren’t going to vote for Clinton just because Lady Gaga, Katy Perry, Lena Dunham, and Sheryl Sandberg were. These celebrity overtures were out of step with the priorities and concerns of white working-class women. How can you “lean in,” as Sandberg implores working women to do, when...

    Sen. Tim Kaine (D-VA) lost badly to Indiana Gov. Mike Pence in Tuesday night’s vice presidential debate — despite having home field advantage in Farmville, Virginia — raising new doubts about Hillary Clinton. Those doubts are twofold: first, about her decision to choose so weak a candidate, who seemed unable to answer basic policy questions; and second, about Clinton’s health, since if her medical troubles are as bad as feared, Kaine may be taking over at some point if she is elected. Kaine could not stop interrupting Pence, at times sounding high-pitched and shrill, at times whining and defensive. Pence...

    If you can’t even win when the rules are changed in your favor, things must be REALLY bad. That’s how it looks for Hillary Clinton’s new 2016 campaign book, “Stronger Together,” co-authored with running mate Tim Kaine. WND reported just days ago when the book was being savaged on Amazon.com with negative reviews, with 81 percent one-star ratings and an average of only 1.7. Clinton supporters lashed out at “trolls” they said were criticizing the book only because they oppose the Democrat’s presidential candidacy. WND previously reported there were more than 1,200 reviews, and the number grew to than 2,000....
