Post Date: 2017-03-22 20:49:10 by Hondo68
AP Photo/Susan WalshRep. Thomas Massie (R-KY) joked that you might be asking the wrong guy when SiriusXM host Alex Marlow asked him to explain the House Obamacare bill on Wednesdays Breitbart News Daily. This bill would replace the subsidies, penalties, and mandates of Obamacare with subsidies, penalties, and mandates of what were calling Obamacare-lite, said Massie, who is obviously not a supporter of the bill. Frankly, the number of calls to my office and we only keep track of the constituents who call, in other words, those who are among the 750,000 people I represent the calls are running 275 against this bill to 4 ...

Post Date: 2017-03-20 20:47:43 by Hondo68
House Republicans plan to vote on the House floor on Speaker Ryans Obamacare-lite bill Thursday, amidst serious internal strife between Republican leadership and conservatives in the House and Senate. Sources told NBC News that the GOP leadership scheduled the vote only after it believed it had the support to pass the bill. Speaker Ryan and Republican leadership will now rally support for the plan, amid strong opposition from the House Freedom Caucus. House Freedom Caucus chairman Mark Meadows referred to Speaker Ryans repeal bill as Obamacare-lite and criticized the bill for creating new entitlements through the bills tax credits to purchase health insurance. ...

Trump Threatens To Take Us Back To The Climate Dark Ages
Post Date: 2017-03-17 21:26:25 by Gatlin
The fate of our planet has considerably worsened in the last 24 hours. Donald Trump has taken his first steps towards unwinding his predecessor Barack Obamas hard won climate change legacy. In his inaugural budget on Thursday, the tycoon tweeter proposed slashing the Environmental Protection Agencys budget by some 2.7 billion dollars. Such a move would scrap funding for a string of environmental programs, including Obamas landmark plan to fight climate change by reining in emissions from Americas vast fleet of power plants. Literally and figuratively, this is a scorched-earth budget that represents an all-out assault on clean air, water, and land, ...

Trump's 'libertarianism' endangers the public
Post Date: 2017-03-17 15:57:57 by Gatlin
Republicans are friendly to business and suspicious of regulations. They want minimal government as a matter of principle. But there is another group that wants to shrink government: professional criminals who hate cops. They want no interference when they hurt people. President Trump's recent executive order, titled "Reducing Regulation and Controlling Regulatory Cost," speaks the language of the principled libertarians, but its beneficiaries are likely to be the thugs. The order prohibits any agency from issuing any new regulation unless it also repeals two regulations that cost as much as the new one. "Costs" mean the cost of complying with the regulation. The ...
Libertarian case for open borders
Post Date: 2017-03-17 10:09:27 by Gatlin
This page outlines a case for open borders based on libertarian perspectives, but it should be read with two important caveats. First, the libertarian principles invoked in these arguments have appeal to many non- libertarians, and therefore this case can be convincing to many non-libertarians. Second, a number of self-identified libertarians reject the libertarian case for open borders. For more, see the moral counter- case page. For the views of prominent libertarians on immigration, see our page libertarians views of immigration. As with all our top-level pages, please treat this page only as a starting point in exploring the ethics of the open borders question. To dig deeper, ...

BREAKING : Trump Weighs Lawsuit Against MSNBC for Revealing his Taxes
Post Date: 2017-03-17 09:50:00 by Gatlin
On Tuesday night, MSNBCs Rachel Maddow revealed President Trumps 2005 tax to the world, proving once and for all that President Trump paid a lot in taxes, $38 million to be exact. What she did may have violated federal privacy laws, and reports indicate that President Trump is considering a lawsuit against MSNBC and possibly the journalist who provided the documents. From Fox Business Trumps tax returns were published Tuesday by DCReport.org, a website operated by David Cay Johnston, a Pulitzer Prize winning investigative reporter. They were simultaneously aired on MSNBCs The Rachel Maddow Show. Legal experts say any case would be a long-shot given ...
FLASHBACK : Democrats and Judges Had No Problem When Jimmy Carter Banned Iranians
Post Date: 2017-03-17 09:45:39 by Gatlin
Amidst all the chaos of Democrats and liberal judges ruling that the recent travel ban being imposed by President Trump is unconstitutional, people forget that Jimmy Carter banned Iranians from entering the U.S. back in 1979. The liberal hypocrisy goes way back
From the Daily Wire President Jimmy Carter took a similar action when he banned Iranians from entering the United States. After 52 Americans were taken hostage in 1979 Iranian hostage crisis, Carter cut diplomatic ties with Iran, kicked all diplomats out of the U.S. and banned Iranians from entering the country. The steps I have ordered today are those that are necessary now, Carter said in ...
Donald Trump Is No Libertarian
Post Date: 2017-03-17 07:29:39 by Gatlin
Posters Comment: ^-^-^-^-^-^-^-^-^-^-^-^-^-^-^-^-^-^-^-^-^-^-^-^- Definition of libertarian: 1) an advocate of the doctrine of free will. 2) A person who upholds the principles of individual liberty, especially of thought and action. Ladies and gentleman there you have it, straight from Merriam-Webster. It is with a sad heart that I write this article, but I feel I must. Many of us liberty minded people need to be reminded of what and we stand for. Libertarianism is non-aggressive. We dont steal, we dont bomb, and we dont forcefully impose our will on others. We are the only political group that can honestly say we support real liberty. I use the ...
Trump's massive infrastructure, defense plans will lead to ruin, Ron Paul says
Post Date: 2017-03-15 18:53:32 by Gatlin
For all the fanfare that greeted President Donald Trump at his inauguration on Friday, the next four years of his presidency could very well be marred by a weakening economy as a result of "injurious" policies. That's according to past Texas Congressman and former presidential candidate Ron Paul, who joined CNBC's "Futures Now" last week to echo his past sentiments about the new president. Most notably, the well-known Trump critic believes that the President's proposed plans could overspend the economy into trouble and drive the Federal Reserve to interfere. "With his massive increase in infrastructure and the military, I think there's going to be ...

You're Being Played: Trump Is The Pied Piper
Post Date: 2017-03-15 09:35:32 by Deckard
Permit me to set the scene. This has all been set up by the Deep State, over a period of many years, in fact. To begin with, Donald Trump is not an outsider, he's an insider, and has been for a long time. He's a New York City multi-billionaire with numerous business and personal contacts in industry, high finance and government at all levels. That has been true for decades, even before he ran for political office. The Trump brand was conspicuously pre-positioned before the public's eyes for decades. It's called product placement and in this case the product being sold is Trump. It's a familiar advertising technique. Very few people have their own network TV program. I ...
Ron Paul and the “libertarian statists”
Post Date: 2017-03-15 08:45:00 by Gatlin
The social media storm over the Libertarian Party Chairs recent comments on Ron Paul reflects a fundamental division among American libertarians. The role of U.S. Libertarian Party (LP) Chair is an administrative position, that normally receives little public attention. That changed this January, after the current Chair, Nicholas Sarwark, appeared on a year-end Lions of Liberty podcast to discuss the 2016 LP presidential campaign of Gary Johnson and Bill Weld. One comment in that 40-minute interview caused an eruption in comments on Facebook,(1) and a debate [that] raged on social media.(2) During the discussion, the podcast host contrasted Johnsons ...

BREAKING : President Trump Seeks to CUT FUNDING to Liberal Radio Station NPR
Post Date: 2017-03-12 19:21:58 by Gatlin
NPR is the very liberal-leaning radio station that, like Sesame Street, is partially funded by the government. Rumor has it that President Trump plans on defunding NPR when his new budget is released. Currently, NPR receives funding via the Corporation for Public Broadcasting or CPB, which is allocated $445 million annually to dole out to assorted media channels. From Washington Free Beacon Defunding the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, an idea floated by the Trump administration, would likely take two years to go into effect. The funding for CPB, which receives roughly $450 million a year for public television and public radio, is allotted two years in advance. Any ...
BREAKING : Trump Unleashed 40 Airstrikes in Yemen Over the Past 5 Days
Post Date: 2017-03-12 19:17:33 by Gatlin
True to his promise, President Trump is making the bad guys pay. Bigly. President Trump is not afraid to use our mighty military and has unleashed 40 airstrikes against terror targets in Yemen over the past 5 days. More WINNING! From Breaking 911 After a week of punishing air strikes loosed on al Qaeda in Yemen that saw 40 targets go up in flame and smoke, American pilots took a breather the past two nights, watching the dust settle. The week-long blitz in Yemen eclipsed the annual bombing total for any year during Obamas presidency. Under the previous administration, approval for strikes came only after often slow-moving policy discussions, with senior officials required to ...
Frontline: Divided States of America
Post Date: 2017-03-11 12:38:31 by sneakypete
The PBS tv show "Frontline" recently ran a "Independent Lens" series titled "Divided States of America" that I recorded,and just got around to viewing. This is a VERY balanced piece of video journalism that covers and explains the events that came about as a result of Obama being elected President with the apparent help of what passes for a Republican Party. It starts with the lame alleged (MY word) attempt of McLunatic to run against him,and shows lots of examples of McLunatic sounding more like a Obama supporter than opponent. At times it sounds like he is actually campaigning for Obomber. It also takes a VERY fair and unbiased look at the emergence of ...
BREAKING : Democrats Introduce Bill to Block Funding to Our Troops Overseas
Post Date: 2017-03-11 10:10:30 by Gatlin
California Rep. Barbara Lee introduced a bill on Friday that would prevent funding for our men and women fighting ISIS on the ground in Syria. Her bill would stop the DOJ from funding any attempt by Trumps administration to put boots on the ground in Syria. Apparently, Ms. Lee likes terrorists. She was the only lawmaker who voted against the authorization for the use of military force after 9/11. Disgusting. From Breitbart WASHINGTON D.C. Rep. Barbara Lee (D-CA)introduced legislation on Friday that would prevent funding for U.S. boots on the ground in Syria as the fight against the Islamic State in the city of Raqqa is intensifying, including the recent ...
BREAKING : Meet The Shady Character Many Believe is the “DNC LEAKER” (No, He’s Not Russian)
Post Date: 2017-03-11 10:04:15 by Gatlin
For months and months now liberals and the fake news media has been pushing the false narrative that Russia, working along with President Trump, rigged the election so Trump would win. They claim that Russia hacked the DNC and John Podesta emails and handed them over to Wikileaks. Never mind that Wikileaks co-founder Julian Assange has vehemently denied this, and said his source for the data WAS NOT RUSSIAN. Now, were learning that a shady character involved in a Congressional IT security probe had FULL ACCESS to DNC emails and was a close confidant of Debbie Wasserman Schultz.
