  • Angry About Trump’s Obamacare Repeal? Hillary Said Bernie’s Single Payer Would ‘Never’ Happen

    The Huffington Post ^ | March 16, 2017 | H. A. Goodman, Contributor
    My latest Counter Propa article explains why Democrats are blaming the wrong person for Trump’s attempt at repealing the Affordable Care Act. I’ve been told I speak too often about Hillary Clinton. Let it go, they say. It’s over, she lost. Bernie endorsed Clinton. Let’s unite and defeat Trump. There’s only one problem. When people like Claire McCaskill label Bernie Sanders as “too liberal” and “extreme” to be president, don’t complain when a Republican who’s too conservative and extreme becomes president. The only reason Democrats are obsessed with Russian hacking (NSA has only “moderate confidence” in the narrative, by the...

    Saturday marked a day full of Presidential and Vice Presidential motorcades traveling back and forth across Palm Beach County. For the first time since taking office, President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence are visiting Palm Beach at the same time. Supporters gathering to watch the President's motorcade return from his golf course to Mar-a-Lago got the surprise of a lifetime Saturday afternoon. A small group had lined up on Bingham Island with signs and flags. "We waved to him, the cars went by really fast, and we were just sitting down talking about the events of the day,"...

    NASHVILLE, TENN — President Donald Trump is returning to the road, rallying supporters to recapture the enthusiasm of his campaign and reassuring them about his tumultuous early days in the White House. It's a welcome distraction for a president whose first months in office have been dominated by self-inflicted controversy and roadblocks, courtesy of federal courts and a divided Congress. "We have done far more, I think maybe more than anybody's done in this office in 50 days, that I can tell you,'' Trump said to cheers from thousands of supporters at a campaign rally in Nashville, Tennessee....

Trump claimed Warren, a top surrogate for 2016 Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, “was getting up with that craziness and that anger” in speeches on the campaign trail....

    Many Donald Trump voters cast their votes for the president because he’s “authentically inauthentic” and serves as a “middle finger” to the mainstream news media, according to NBC’s Chuck Todd. The “Meet the Press” host made those remarks during a recent interview of former Texas state Sen. Wendy Davis at the South by Southwest festival in Austin, who found herself in the national spotlight in 2013 for her efforts filibustering a bill to regulate the Lone Star State’s abortion clinics. Ms. Davis suggested to Mr. Todd that both her failed 2014 gubernatorial run and Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential loss can...

    A pregnant answer at 7:40 below in response to an excellent question by Tucker Carlson: How can a populist president support an ObamaCare bill that would mostly benefit the well-off at the expense of older, blue-collar, rural Americans — the very people who put him over the top against Hillary? Is he even aware that the bill does that? “Oh, I know,” says Trump, before emphasizing that everything’s negotiable. Well … yes, but all of the negotiating that’s been done so far has been designed to please conservatives, in particular accelerating the rollback of ObamaCare’s Medicaid expansion by starting it...

    Nashville, Tenn. — President Donald Trump railed against a judge's order blocking his immigration restrictions on Wednesday, saying the ruling made America "look weak" — and drew chants from supporters of "lock her up!" when he attacked his former rival. The second version of Trump's travel ban, which would temporarily halts immigration from six primarily Muslim nations, was set to go into effect Thursday until it was stopped by a federal judge in Hawaii. The first executive order shortly after Trump took office was replaced by what the president, during his campaign-style rally in Nashville, called a "watered down" version....

    President Trump's chief strategist Steve Bannon has credited Kellyanne Conway for helping to save the businessman's campaign after the release of the Access Hollywood tape where Donald Trump could be heard making obscene comments about women. In a recent profile on Conway by The Atlantic, Bannon is quoted as saying, "If Kellyanne had not been there when the firestorm hit, I don't know if we would have made it. She literally became a cult figure during that time period, just because of her relentless advocacy for Trump on TV." The media broke news about the tape on October 7....

    Los Angeles County had a dismal turnout rate in the March 7 election, the first chance for voters to express themselves at the ballot box since Donald Trump’s stunning victory. People here seem more political than in the past — they go to a lot of protests and town halls, and they fill their social media accounts with anti-GOP screeds. But less than 12% of eligible voters showed up. This suggests that hatred of our new president isn't sufficient to get out the vote. Granted, the election was a local affair. The most controversial questions for voters involved measures to...

    Hillary Clinton told Goldman Sachs executives that Americans who want to limit immigration are “fundamentally un-American,” according to the leaked transcript of her private October 2013 speech made public by WikiLeaks. Clinton’s statement is significant because it suggests that, according to polling data, Clinton views an overwhelming majority of the American electorate to be “fundamentally un-American.” According to data from Pew Research Center, 83% of the American electorate would like to see immigration levels frozen or reduced. Clinton’s declaration describing those who want to limit immigration as “unAmerican” came in the context of her urging action on “immigration reform.” “Immigration...

    This is fascinating. A professor of economics named Maria Guadalupe was watching the presidential debates last year and had a thought. What if Trump were a woman and Hillary were a man? How would that change people’s perceptions of the exchanges in the debates? With the help of Joe Salvatore, a professor who specializes in something called ethnodrama, Guadalupe set up a recreation of sections of the original debates using actors to play the roles of Trump, Clinton and the moderator. All the words the actors spoke were taken from transcripts. The candidates’ body language and delivery were studied and...

    Mitt Romney presents one enormous problem for Barack Obama’s campaign: No divorce records. That’s why the media are so hot to get their hands on Romney’s tax records for the past 25 years. They need something to “pick through, distort and lie about” — as the Republican candidate says. Obama’s usual campaign method, used in 100 percent of his races, has been to pry into the private records of his opponents. Let’s take a romp down memory lane and review the typical Obama campaign strategy. Obama became a U.S. senator only by virtue of David Axelrod’s former employer, the Chicago...

Or, in the words of House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.), who was excited Trump threw him a bone on some details of health care reform: “That was a home run.” The only Trump who’s proven he can win is the Trump who...

Bernie Sanders knows it – he’s from Vermont, after all – and he derided the boorish gang of sexist, aggressive bullies known as “Bernie Bros” who were hiding behind some of his presidential campaign signs last fall. “Look, we don’t want that crap,” Sanders said of the explicit misogyny demonstrated by people who purported to be his supporters. Amen, Senator, and let us pray the newly elected Democratic National Committee chair doesn’t want that crap either. For electoral success in 2018 and...

Podesta offered no evidence to back-up his speculation. “I’m not sure they really understood the alternative, but they wanted her to lose. I think that’s one possibility.” These “forces” could have played a role in FBI Director James Comey’s controversial decision to alert Congress 11 days before the election that the FBI was...

During their final showdown before the chairman’s election in Atlanta on Feb. 25, there was consensus that the party’s problems derive mainly from subpar organization and communication — not anything fundamental. “We forgot to talk to people,” said Tom Perez, who was secretary of labor until last month and a finalist to be Clinton’s running mate last summer. “I’m a big believer in data analytics,...

Personally, I don’t understand how some emails being released could have caused such a huge electoral college shellacking. Donald Trump won by 74 votes (a margin that by Presidential election standards is not even close). Nevertheless, I like to think I am a fair person. That is why I’ll play along for a moment with the notion that the Russians successfully swayed the opinions of millions of...

The “nastiness,” vulgarities, property damage, and violence we see now are nothing compared to what we will witness if the American left sees the legality of their perverse sexual agenda threatened. With the nomination of Justice Neil Gorsuch to fill the seat vacated as the result of the death of Antonin Scalia, liberals at every level of political involvement are already throwing a hissy-fit.

(Or at least arguably it did: Pennsylvania has a competing tipping-point claim.1 ) So here’s an interesting question: How many times did Hillary Clinton visit Wisconsin during the general election?

    The price of entry for the 2020 presidential primary is ferocious opposition to the president. The Democratic base is so roiled and enraged after only two weeks of Donald Trump’s presidency that a take-no-prisoners posture toward the White House is emerging as the price of entry for the 2020 primary. An election that could have focused on economic inequality and the excesses of Wall Street — the issues that animate the left’s leading tribunes, Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren — is already shaping up as a contest about the intensity of the resistance to Trump. “In almost 20 years of...

    The House Democrats' campaign arm on Thursday announced it has begun hiring staffers in 20 targeted districts held by Republicans in an effort to reclaim the majority in 2018. “The launch of our ‘March into ‘18’ accountability project comes at a time of excitement and opportunity for Democrats,” Rep. Ben Ray Luján (D-N.M.), the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee's chairman, said in a statement. “The organic strength of the women’s marches, Affordable Care Act rallies, and protests across the country provides further evidence that Democrats are on offense this cycle — and the DCCC is ready to capture that energy,” he...

    Former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton on Tuesday tweeted that she is thinking about Khizr Khan, the father of a U.S. Army captain who was killed in Iraq, and an Iraqi interpreter who can reportedly no longer come to the United States due to President Trump’s latest executive order.(TWEET-AT-LINK) The tweet comes three days after Trump signed an executive order imposing a 90-day ban on citizens from seven predominantly Muslim countries entering the United States. The Khizr Khan and his wife, Ghazala, are from Pakistan, which is not included on Trump's list. The order also calls for a 120-day ban...

    The evening before his inauguration, President Trump took time to meet with a 24-year-old FedEx courier from rural Illinois. In a tent behind the Lincoln Memorial in D.C., the soon-to-be president praised Shane Bouvet for his work as a volunteer on his campaign, hugged him and then promised him an extraordinary thank you: a $10,000 check. The unusual meeting was arranged after Trump said he read a profile about Bouvet in The Washington Post. The struggling single father had spent nights working and days volunteering for Trump, who Bouvet hoped could bring renewal to his home town of Stonington, Ill.,...

    What happened to President Obama’s majority? The surface-level answer to this question is simple. Donald Trump won over a supermajority of white working-class voters while holding on to many traditional Republicans, allowing him to win the Electoral College. At the same time, down-ballot Republicans built on their solid showings in 2010 and 2014, which helped them retain control of Congress and significant power in the states. But there’s a deeper dimension to this question. For the past eight years, election wonks have been arguing about whether Democrats have an unassailable majority in presidential politics. The theory was straightforward: As the...

    Donald Trump walked into the Oval Office on the first Monday of his presidency less than 100 hours ago, and what has ensued is a frenzy of focused activity aimed at national and job security. Through a series of executive actions, the president has been checking off his campaign promises like a Friday to-do list before a three-day weekend. Authorize building the wall, check. Streamline federal regulations on building pipelines, check. Order a regulatory streamlining plan from the Commerce Department to ease burdens on manufacturers increasing the number of jobs, check. Implement “extreme vetting” of asylum seekers from certain Middle...

    Voter fraud is in the news again, with President Trump vowing an investigation and the liberal media assuring us that voter fraud does not exist. My question is always: why are they so confident that there is little or no fraud, when so few efforts are made to look for it? Here in Minnesota, there is no possible way for anyone to know how much voter fraud occurred last November. Minnesota is a same-day registration state, and more than 500,000 voters register on the day of a presidential election. The Minnesota Voters Alliance explains why that is a problem: Two...

    Millions of people showed up to protest the new Republican President in one of the largest demonstrations in history and the Democratic Party was barely in sight. This weekend's enormous women's marches in Washington, D.C. and elsewhere are the latest signs that the official Democratic Party apparatus, hobbled by a post-election lull that saw it lay off staff and freeze some operations, has so far missed out on opportunities to head the resistance to Donald Trump. Only one of the seven candidates vying for the chairmanship of the Democratic National Committee, South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg, attended a march, while...

    Progressives mapped out ways to combat newly sworn-in President Trump at a liberal confab at the swanky Turnberry Isle resort in Aventura, Fla., over the weekend. The confab, organized by Media Matters founder David Brock, attracted more than 100 well-heeled progressive donors who came to plot and scheme ways to neutralize Trump, The Washington Free Beacon reports. The tireless Clinton defender is reportedly aiming to build a liberal donor network for the left that rivals that of the Koch brothers. A confidential memo from Brock, obtained by The Free Beacon, outlined plans to use his numerous organizations to defeat President...

    President Donald Trump is home alone, so suddenly one of the hottest new tickets in town is an invitation to the White House. The President is going to start hitting the Washington dinner party circuit. In most cases, actually, his guests will come to him as he tries building bridges in a city that he has spent years railing against. "It's very good -- a beautiful relationship," said Trump, all smiles Monday as he hosted congressional leaders at the White House for his first round of evening visitors. A piano played Billy Joel's "New York State of Mind," as the...
