Report: Arnold Schwarzenegger Considering Senate Bid Daily Caller News Foundation ^ | March 9, 2017 | Juliegrace Brufke Posted on 3/9/2017, 11:23:41 PM by kevcol

Schwarzenegger spokesman Daniel Ketchell told Politico that the former governor hasn’t ruled out the possibility of seeking a seat in the upper chamber

“Right now Gov. Schwarzenegger’s focus is on using his platform to bring some sensibility and coherency to Washington by fighting for redistricting reform, like we did in California,’’ Ketchell told the publication. “We are keeping all of our options open as far as how we can accomplish that.”

A long long time ago, I supported you. I thought you were someone, different from who you are, apparently.

You really seemed to be more Donald Trump at first.

Now, not so much.

Don’t be too hasty.
1. Serial groper.
2. Rich.
3. Good at implementing stupid policies that fail (because they’re stupid)
4. Once a media star, who’s now in the process of collapsing.
Sounds pretty bang-on to me.

Is Steve Bannon The Guy In The White House Who Is Protecting DREAMers? Red State ^ | March 9, 2017 | streff Posted on 3/10/2017, 12:01:58 AM by TBP

Relying upon a technique rarely seen in political journalism these days, anonymous and nebulously described sources, BuzzFeed, hot off its tour de force in releasing the Trump “dossier” now has another scoop?

Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA — which Trump said he would rescind on day one — is rough political terrain for the White House. Conservative media and elected officials see it as a rare hardline immigration promise the administration hasn’t kept, and the White House is kicking it down the road for as long as officials can.

But according to two sources who regularly speak with the Trump administration, DACA is a settled issue.

And in recent conversations, two administration sources pointed to chief strategist Steve Bannon as the man who preserved the current iteration of DACA, the victor of a debate with Attorney General Jeff Sessions and senior policy adviser Stephen Miller, who favored curtailing the program.

“Bannon usually wins most battles,” an administration insider said.


Now they’re not going to get rid of DACA, and apparently BAnnon is the force behind that. This is bad news.

They’re not going to revoke DACA. Are you OK with that?? Is that what we voted for?

Most of the Mexican & Central American DACA “kids” are believers in the Reconquista Movement, IMHO.

Of course, that’s just in MY HO…

This is bad news.

I wouldn’t get too worked up over it. Honestly, outside of Free Republic, ending DACA is going to be pretty difficult.

And inside of a dog, it’s too dark to read.

These aren’t adults who crossed the border we’re talking about here. When we start talking about deporting people who were brought over here as children and infants, who had no decision in the matter, and who have no understanding or memory of the country they left, the optics are going to be terrible.

And by “optics” he means reality.

Bannon has the right idea; use DACA as a bargaining chip for other parts of President Trump’s agenda.

They’re not getting rid of accepting pre-existing medical conditions either and for the same reason.

Trump endorses RINOcare. Are we doomed? Conservative Review ^ | March 07, 2017 | Chris Pandolfo Posted on 3/9/2017, 12:48:13 AM by TBP

The text of Republican health care reform bill to replace Obamacare was released Monday night. Tuesday morning, President Donald Trump offered a full-throated endorsement of the legislation put forward by House Republican leadership.

The bill is “out for review,” President Trump tweeted. Well, the CR review is in, and the bill is terrible. For the last six years, the primary complaints of Republicans against Obamacare were the unconstitutional individual mandate and the insurance regulations that are driving up the cost of premiums.

Neither of those problems are addressed in the RINOcare bill. A Republican version of the individual mandate remains in place to penalize individuals who forgo insurance coverage. The insurance regulations that require insurance companies to cover individuals with pre-existing conditions and the community rating regulation — the requirement that insurance companies charge even the sickest applicants the price of the community — are still there. These regulations are the reason health insurance premiums keep going up every year.

So the structural problems of Obamacare that make health insurance unaffordable for millions of Americans are enshrined in the “replacement” bill proposed by House Republicans.

Will these problems be addressed? According to the president, there will be a phase two and a phase three of Republican health care reform.

The problem is that the Republican Party promised a full repeal of Obamacare in every election season for the last six years. They won the elections in 2010, 2014, and 2016 running on full repeal. This current bill is not full repeal.

It doesn’t matter what additional changes they make to their replacement plan. If Republicans keep the structural problems of Obamacare in place, as they have done in this draft, they will not make health insurance affordable. Breaking a promise of that magnitude will have far-reaching political consequences that will knock Republicans out of power. Health care will likely be handed back to the Democrat Party and their single-payer socialist schemes.

Conservative Review’s Daniel Horowitz was clear when he wrote “It’s time for President Trump to lead, or this is over.”


We have to keep this piece of garbage off President Trump’s desk.

Well, there’s already a piece of garbage BEHIND that desk, so….
The Freeperati are not amused.


It IS garbage…nearly as bad as Obamacare itself. The biggest problem I have is that the ‘RATS now totally own Obamacare 100%; and they own its death spiral and constantly increasing costs.

If Republicans pass this GOPeCare monstrosity & Trump signs it into law then it will become TrumpCare and Trump & the Republicans will 100% own it ALONG WITH ALL THE PROBLEMS. We will have “brilliantly” (sarc) taken the monkey of Obamacare off the backs of the ‘RATS and placed it (now named TrumpCare) firmly onto the backs of Trump and the Republicans. And we will live to regret that.

“Live to regret that”?
Depends on if you have any pre-existing conditions, or if your shitty job will allow you to squirrel away a million dollars or so for your chemo.
Meanwhile, in the 13th dimensional chess department :


Hopefully he’s just using this abomination to see who needs to be replaced in the next election amongst Republicans…

I just looked at Trumps tweet from Mar 7, he called it “our wonderful new bill to replace obamacare”.

In the end, I think Pres. Trump will scrap this bill and will do the right thing.

If not, we will surely lose seats in 2018 — and maybe the White House in 2020.

Well, he didn’t write that either,  so you may have a point…

Let everyone else tell them it’s a bad program instead of him. The deep state

Tactical error. Makes him look like a dunce, or even worse, a sell-out, for supporting a plan that is the evil twin of Obamacare.

I’m afraid it’s exactly what it looks like. President Trump stuck himself to a tar baby by coming out in support of this monstrosity.

  1. “Ah, Trump rarely let’s(sic) it be known what he’s really thinking.”

    Well, the CIA planted a bug under the combover last year, to keep track of the Russian connection.

    All it picked up was loud clanging, squealing, and incoherent gibbering, however.

    There are times when 100% audio fidelity is not your friend.
