The democrats have a plan to dilute down conservative voters with floods of 3rd world immigrants and its working working. And now even Trump has stopped fighting it.
Democrats getting their way on Immigration is the end of America. They will have full soviet union style monopoly on all government power in ten years or less.
***************He caved. America lost.the democrats plan to use immigration to dilute out conservative voters is still right on track. And now no one is standing in their way.

You mean whoring for $80,000 every three months? Or would that be Jim Rob?

We will back to square one in three weeks nothing is going to change. Look, its not these workers fault the Govt is a bunch of corrupt bastards. If I were screwed out of two checks that I needed I would be pissed too..so what is going to change three weeks from now..NOTHING, Dems will NEVER approve of wall funding its never going to happen so what, he’s going to shut down the Govt again? So why bother with this
To: Kickass Conservative
So why isn’t ANY democrat being prosecuted???
8d chess, my butt.
To: Cubs Fan
Sad. The house has him on the ropes. pelosy’s goal is the election. If Trump doesn’t build, he will lose the election. Also Criminal Hillary is walking around.
He keeps telling us how nice walls are. This speech is repetitious of past speeches. If he doesn’t declare the emergency, he won’t get funding from the house. If he declares, the dems will tie him up in court and in two years the wall will not be built.
I don’t see a path to the wall before the election. Dem mission accomplished. UNLESS he declares and tells the judiciary to stand down as emergencies are not in their purview. But he has acquiesced to the courts for two years.
He has played the national emergency card for 5 weeks. It’s just like his threat to declassify all those documents that are still secret. All talk. Nancy and Chuck won folks, deal with it. If you think Nan and Chuck are going to negotiate on the wall keep drinking the Kool-Aid. They won this time and they will win in 3 weeks, and 6 month and 2 years. It was a nice run, but no republic last forever. In 5 years you won’t even recognize this once great country. There is already a judge ready with a restraining order in hand against using a national emergency declaration to build the wall.
I’m not going to say Trump lied about the wall. I just don’t think, as an outsider he understood how unlikely it was he could deliver. The power in this country belong to the Left and their supporters in both parties, the media and schools. That is a hard coalition to defeat.
To: ChildOfThe60sI believe that judicial overreach has come to the point where the President should pull an Andy Jackson. Tell the court they have no jurisdiction, if they want to stop it, they can send their army to do so.
At which point Pelosi will gleefully impeach and when it goes to the Senate you get to see how many Republicans give sanctimonious speeches about the ‘Rule of Law’ and vote to convict.
Good morning, gentle people – it’s not been a Very Good Week for The Darnold, but nothing (including the now never-ending Freepathon) is gonna get the Freeperati down!

Trump tells Pelosi he plans to proceed with State of the Union next week

President Trump told House Speaker Nancy Pelosi in a new letter Wednesday that he still plans to deliver next week’s scheduled State of the Union address from the House floor even though Pelosi urged him to delay the speech because of the government shutdown.
The president, in his letter, said there are “no security concerns” surrounding the event, in response to Pelosi raising that as a potential issue because of the partial shutdown.
“I look forward to seeing you on the evening on January 29th in the Chamber of the House of Representatives,” Trump wrote. “It would be so very sad for our country if the State of the Union were not delivered on time, on schedule, and very importantly, on location!”
Trump: I will deliver State of the Union ‘when the shutdown is over
The Hill ^ | January 23, 2019 | MARY TYLER MARCH
Posted on 1/23/2019, 10:31:19 PM by be-baw
President Trump said late Wednesday that he would deliver his State of the Union address after the ongoing partial government shutdown is over.
“As the Shutdown was going on, Nancy Pelosi asked me to give the State of the Union Address,” Trump wrote in a tweet. “I agreed. She then changed her mind because of the Shutdown, suggesting a later date. This is her prerogative – I will do the Address when the Shutdown is over.”
Trump clarified earlier statements suggesting he may do an “alternative” State of the Union, writing that he was not seeking an alternative venue because “there is no venue that can compete with the history, tradition and importance of the House Chamber.”
“I look forward to giving a “great” State of the Union Address in the near future!” he added.
***********************I guess that’s settled.
Why did he cave?Does he REALLY expect that crazy Nancy is going to give in on ANYTHING re the wall? If he does, then he’s just NUTS and hasn’t managed to learn anything in these past 2 years!
And IF he give up/caves on the wall, he’s in real trouble with the base.
Before we get to the Freeping idiots, The Darnold says : “Hold my tequila!”
(mind you, this is from FOX news)
While addressing reporters ahead of a special announcement Saturday on the partial government shutdown and border wall funding, President Trump cited San Antonio as a city that had its crime problem solved after getting a wall.
“You look at different places, they put up a wall, no problem,” Trump said. “You look at San Antonio, you look at so many different places, they go from one of the most unsafe cities in the country to one of the safest cities immediately.”
There is, of course, a wall around part of the Alamo (8 /10 feet high), but that didn’t really stop any Mexicans from climbing it.
Yeesh – he must think everyone is as stupid as he is.
Speaking of stupid – Hail To Da King, Baby!
White House: Rep. Steve King’s white supremacy remarks ‘abhorrent’

WASHINGTON — The White House is describing comments by Republican Rep. Steve King about white supremacy as “abhorrent.”
Presidential press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders is praising the move by House Republicans to strip the nine-term Iowa lawmaker of his committee assignments.
To: Blue House Sue
That’s no way to talk about your Fuhrer.
His comments were no such thing. Vilification of someone asking a question regarding today’s political discourse, or the lack thereof, is eroding our representative foundation.

Kanye Is Back On That Deranged $#*+ With Trump!!
Hypefresh ^ | January 2, 2019
Posted on 1/2/2019, 11:04:59 PM by 2ndDivisionVet
It seems like Kanye’s deranged behavior is here to stay in 2019.
Through 2018, Kanye had a lot of ups and downs in his personal life. The rapper has seemed to have fallen from stardom due to his outspoken personality and random outburst. Because of his actions he has lost the respect of the peers in the world of music. It seems as though his arrogance continues to grow and rubbed people throughout the year. It even went as for to typical Kanye finding ways to piss people off at Cher opening. Most of the animosity has come by way of him being an advocate for Donald Trump within the urban community.
Many people were appalled when news broke that Kanye West arrives at Whitehouse for lunch with Trump. Fellow artist that have accepted Kanye West stunts in the past would not be silent on this particular shenanigan. Artist such as Snoop Dogg, T.I., and former label mate Camron took to social media to air out the Chicago native. Everyone is highly offended by Mr. West rocking the highly controversial “Make America Great Again” hat. Shortly after his wife Kim Kardashian says she educated Kanye after the Trump visit.
Longtime colleague Charlemagne Da God canceled his interview his discussion with Kanye West because of his public outcry for attention. After all of the drama, Yeezy eventually apologized publicly on Twitter for making the wrong stance regarding the world of politics. Even his label Pusha T claimed that Kanye doesn’t wear the MAGNA hat anymore. At the moment it seems as though Kanye is back to supporting Trump again. During his cabinet meeting to kick off the year, the President shouted out Mr. West.
It’s obvious that Ye loves to be the center of attention, as he even called out larger than life rapper Drake on Twitter. He claims that Drizzy took shots at him several times, and he was steamin after Drake followed his wife on Instagram.
Is Kanye really deranged? Or is he trying to stay relevant?
To: 2ndDivisionVetI don’t care about Kanye anymore
Seems like an attention whore to me
To: Trump.DeplorableKanye is a Master Persuader.
“I don’t care about Kanye anymore”
I never pay any attention to the worthless, lowlife filth. Anyone who did an idiot. He’s a con-artist, subhuman garbage and a racist POS. He richly deserves the “Tupac Treatment”, bigtime, for his trash rags and noise.
Good morning, everybody! I thought I might take a mental health day – it’s not that the Freeperati are displaying their usual insanity, but that it’s just gotten too repetitious. I spend on the average of three hours compiling and composing each of these “Obsession” posts, and that means reading literally hundreds of threads and replies for each one. Having to sort out all the chuckle-worthy bits from the huge stream of mental vomitus gets even harder when the mind-numbing sameness of the hive mind makes it so.
This week, the theme seems to be – beaners.
District judge disappointed Rifle ranter won’t enter plea
Post Independent ^ | Dec 5 2018 | Thomas Phippen
Posted on 12/29/2018, 3:10:45 PM by rintintin
A Ninth District judge indicated disappointment that a Rifle woman accused of yelling at two Spanish-speaking women in a racially charged rant at a Rifle grocery story will not have to enter a plea.
Garfield County Judge Jonathan Potosky said at a hearing in the case Wednesday he would have liked to see Linda Dwire, who was charged with misdemeanor racial-motivated harassment enter a guilty plea of some kind of condition of having her case diverted.
The charge results from an incident at the Rifle City Market in October — part of which was caught on video by a bystander and went viral on the internet — where Dwire allegedly was yelling at two women for speaking in Spanish.
The diversion program was at the discretion of prosecutors, and it was not in his power to compel a plea, Pototsky said.
The point of the diversion program is to divert the case away from the court, and the court has no way to stop it.
Facing criminal charges to telling these people they should be speaking English? How stupid are these people in Rifle?
This never ending conga-line of non-English speaking foreign nationals/illegals the government has forced upon our country are costing tax payers 10 of millions, simply due to the fact these people do not speak or even bother to learn English.
Get suited up, everybody – the coolest thing in the history of Freeperdom is happening, and you can smell the excitement in the air.
At least I think it’s excitement….
LIVE THREAD: GoFundMe for Trump’s Border Wall Hits $7 Million and Is Rising
The EpochTimes ^ | JACK PHILLIPS
Posted on 12/20/2018, 4:15:55 PM by naeim.darzi
A GoFundMe page titled, “We The People Will Fund The Wall,” has raised more than $7 million out of $1 billion as of Dec. 20. In less than an hour late on Thursday, donors contributed more than $500,000.
The page was set up by Brian Kolfage, a triple-amputee Air Force veteran who received the Purple Heart.
“As a veteran who has given so much, 3 limbs, I feel deeply invested to this nation to ensure future generations have everything we have today. Too many Americans have been murdered by illegal aliens and too many illegals are taking advantage of the United States taxpayers with no means of ever contributing to our society,” his page reads.
To: naeim.darziWhile I appreciate the sentiment, this is foolish.
What exactly is the governmental mechanism that enables a direct cash donation to a specific government project?
To: Future Snake EaterJust off the top of my head, the government could sign a $0 contract to build the wall with a non-profit entity or with a contracting company whose costs are paid privately.Funding may be tantamount to legislative authorization, but does the President really lack authorization? I don’t think so.

Trump Unleashes on ‘Dumb as a Rock’ Tillerson: He ‘Didn’t Have the Mental Capacity’
msn ^ | 12/7/2018 | Josh Feldman
Posted on 12/7/2018, 3:11:27 PM by detective
President Donald Trump is clearly not happy with comments from his former Secretary of State.
Rex Tillerson got candid today not just about his time at State, but about the President and how “undisciplined” he is. He also claimed that he had to explain to Trump that various things he proposed were illegal.
Trump clearly heard about the comments, and he fired back with some choice words for the man who once reportedly called him a “moron”:
“Mike Pompeo is doing a great job, I am very proud of him,” Trump tweeted Friday afternoon. “His predecessor, Rex Tillerson, didn’t have the mental capacity needed. He was dumb as a rock and I couldn’t get rid of him fast enough. He was lazy as hell. Now it is a whole new ballgame, great spirit at State!”
Rex was the third most incompetent and lazy SoS in history, just after Hellary and Kerry the Klown.
Thankfully we had a strategic genius of unsurpassed wisdom and courage in the WH keeping things running !
To: Dilbert San Diego
Trump “Gibbery gibbery gibberish, la la me, best, biggest, blaggety blah blah tremendous blageddy gibberish.”
Trump supporter in the stands “We love him because he says what he’s thinking!”
Every one of you misses the point. The point is not that Trump is “man enough” to tell it like it is. (rolls eyes)
The point is, he – TRUMP – is the person hiring all of these “dumb as a rock” people to Cabinet positions. What does it say about his judgement? THAT, is the point.
Trump has made himself look petty… again. I really wish he would not do that. If he didn’t do this he would be a really great man. He could defend himself without being so much like a 12 year-old.
OK – back to the sludge pit.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is in Nancy Pelosi’s corner.
The 29-year-old progressive star, who will become the youngest member of Congress, criticized a letter signed by 16 Democrats calling for new leadership and announcing they will not vote for Pelosi as House speaker.
“When I was reading this letter that was kind of released today, my main concern was that there is no vision, there is no common value, there is no goal that is really articulated in this letter aside from ‘We need to change,’” Ocasio-Cortez said on MSNBC on Monday evening

FULL TITLE: BREAKING REPORT — **EXCLUSIVE DOCUMENTS** : Special Counsel and Former FBI Director Robert Mueller Accused of Rape By ‘Very Credible Witness ‘
Special Counsel Robert Mueller was accused by a very credible witness today of rape at the St. Regis Hotel in New York City in 2010.
A formal press conference is scheduled for Thursday at noon in Washington DC.
Jack Burkman @Jack_Burkman Some sad news. On Thursday, November 1, at the Rosslyn Holiday Inn at noon, we will reveal the first of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s sex assault victims. I applaud the courage and dignity and grace and strength of my client. 11:15 AM – Oct 30, 2018 2,726 9,053 people are talking about this
What we know: The woman is a “very credible witness.” Her story are corroborated. The incident happened in 2010 in New York City. The woman is a professional.
We will post the document shortly.
The Mueller apologists are already trashing the accuser — and don’t even know who she is!
*****************************Now we know why Mueller leaked the story that women were being paid to accuse him of rape to inoculate him against the real rape charges that were about to break.
To: E. Pluribus Unum
Now it appears that Mueller was in DC on jury duty at the time of the alleged assault.

Suspicious package sent to Obama intercepted by Secret Service
The Hill ^ | October 24, 2018 | Avery Anapol
Posted on 10/24/2018, 9:09:53 AM by EdnaMode
The Secret Service has intercepted a suspicious package addressed to former President Obama in Washington, D.C.
The Secret Service said in a statement that the package, and another sent to the home of Bill and Hillary Clinton in New York, were identified as “potential explosive devices and appropriately handled as such.”
The statement said that the Obamas and Clintons did not receive the packages, and were not at risk of receiving them.
The package sent to the Clintons was reported earlier Wednesday and was intercepted late Tuesday night, according to the Secret Service.
“The packages were immediately identified during routine mail screening procedures as potential explosive devices and were appropriately handled as such,” the Secret Service said in a statement. “The protectees did not receive the packages nor were they at risk of receiving them.”
The Secret Service said it had initiated “a full scope criminal investigation that will leverage all available federal, state, and local resources to determine the source of the packages and identify those responsible.”
NBC New York reported that the package sent to the Clintons is similar to the explosive device found at the home of billionaire philanthropist George Soros on Monday.
Well, I wonder what the first comment is going to be….
********************************Soros yesterday, The Clintons and Obama today. Right before midterms. Has to be a hoax.
As I said on the Clinton thread, this is not the MO for conservatives.
We enact change at the ballot box or if necessary the cartridge box.
It is typical for the left to try to send bombs through mail because they have no problems with scaring people into compliance or killing them if the person disagrees with them.
At age 29, Rudolph was the perpetrator of the Centennial Olympic Park bombing in Atlanta, which occurred on July 27, 1996, during the 1996 Summer Olympics. He called the police, warning about the bomb before it detonated. The blast killed spectator Alice Hawthorne and wounded 111 others. Melih Uzunyol, a Turkish cameraman, who ran to the scene following the blast, died of a heart attack. Rudolph’s motive for the bombings, according to his April 13, 2005 statement, was political (…)
Rudolph has made it clear in his written statement and elsewhere that the purpose of the bombings was to fight against abortion and the “homosexual agenda.” He considered abortion to be murder, the product of a “rotten feast of materialism and self-indulgence”; accordingly, he believed that its perpetrators deserved death, and that the United States government had lost its legitimacy by sanctioning it. He also considered it essential to resist by force “the concerted effort to legitimize the practice of homosexuality” in order to protect “the integrity of American society” and “the very existence of our culture”, whose foundation is the “family hearth.”
After Rudolph’s arrest for the bombings, The Washington Post reported that the FBI considered Rudolph to have “had a long association with the Christian Identity movement, which asserts that Northern European whites are the direct descendants of the lost tribes of Israel, God’s chosen people.” Christian Identity is a white nationalist religion which holds the view that those who are not white Christians can not be saved. In the same article, the Post reported that some FBI investigators believed Rudolph may have written letters that claimed responsibility for the nightclub and abortion clinic bombings on behalf of the Army of God, a group that sanctions the use of force to combat abortions and is associated with Christian Identity.
DAMN those lefties!!
I don’t care who is doing this, they need to be found, found fast, before anyone hurt. This violence is what comes from, or rather, an escalation and response of what Democrats have done, directly and through proxies like Antifa.
Thanks for clearing that up for us.
All need to be shut down. Immediately and completely. Good to see White House is out front on this. Make it across the board, no violence by anyone will be tolerated.

Saudi king dismisses top officials as it admits missing journalist was killed at consulate
The Hill ^ | 10/19/18 | JUSTIN WISE
Posted on 10/19/2018, 6:08:57 PM by yesthatjallen
Saudi Arabia’s King Salman reportedly dismissed a key royal adviser and a senior intelligence official the same day the country’s state-run media admitted that journalist Jamal Khashoggi died in the Saudi consulate in Istanbul.
King Salman ordered for Saud al-Qahtani, an adviser to Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, to be removed, according to the state-run Ikhbariya television, which was reported by Bloomberg News.
The news came as reports surfaced that the Saudis acknowledged that Khashoggi, a U.S. resident and Washington Post columnist, died after entering the Saudi consulate in Istanbul earlier this month.
The Saudi government stated that 18 Saudi nationals have been arrested and are being interrogated in connection with the case, according to a press release translated by The New York Times.
The president said King Salman of Saudi Arabia strongly denied that the kingdom had any connection to the missing journalist, whose writings were often highly critical of the ruling royal family.
“He didn’t really know. Maybe I don’t want to get into his mind, but it sounded to me like maybe these could have been rogue killers — I mean, who knows?”

Dow tumbles 650 points to new low on day, bringing 2-day losses to more than 1,400 points

Posted on 10/11/2018, 1:57:57 PM by BradtotheBone
Stocks fell in volatile trading Thursday, a day after the major indexes suffered steep losses sparked by higher rates and a sell-off in tech shares.
The Dow Jones Industrial Average traded 650 points lower, bringing its two-day losses to more than 1,400 points. The S&P 500 dropped 2.1 percent and was on pace for a six-day losing streak. The broad index also broke below its 200-day moving average for the first time since May. The Nasdaq Composite pulled back 1.5 percent and entered correction territory.
The major indexes fell after some of the major tech names failed to recover from steep losses in the previous session. Netflix fell more than 1.5 percent after briefly trading higher. Apple also declined 0.8 percent, erasing earlier gains.
Tech shares fell more than 4.5 percent on Wednesday, marking their worst day since 2011. The sell-off led to the Dow sinking more than 800 points and the S&P 500 dropping more than 3 percent. It was also the 28th time since 2011 the S&P 500 posted a more than 2 percent decline, according to data from Birinyi Associates.
“It’s a momentum correction, not a portfolio correction,” said Joe Terranova, chief market strategist at Virtus Investment Partners. “While we have a bias to believe 2008 could happen again, I don’t think this is the case.”
“Less is more in this environment,” Terranova added. “I think you need to be an observer of the guidance you get in earnings.”
Stocks tried to rebound earlier in the day after the release of weaker-than-expected inflation data. The U.S. government said the consumer price index rose 0.1 percent in September, well below the expected gain of 0.2 percent.

I’ve made some decisions.
We’re abandoning ship Tigh.
I have to Saul. She’s dying…and we both know it.
This isn’t the same Free Republic I remember.The FR I knew would have outright rejected these nutjob Q kooks….and the White Nationalists and other creepy critters that support Q’s game.
If you are too effective against the Q drones here, they feel comfortable enough (now) to start sending your phone number to car dealerships, home remodeling places…..and I’m sure, if I looked enough in their little distorted world….my address in it’s entirety. Phone calls have stopped (down from 40+ a day), since I stopped posting. I fully expect them to pick up in the next few days. That’s okay. Call some more. I did nothing at all that would pose any risk to you. #promise/s
I have a very special person to take care of here. If she gets stressed out, that’s my fault.
So you Q people all did it. You stressed her out because you don’t have an argument that stands up to a rational discussion. She’s 99 you a$$holes. Make you feel good? Well, congratulations.
Beat me the only way you could. By attacking my 99 year old grandmother.
Make you feel like a good conservative American? Nah….you’re basement level refuse. Feeding on every little bit of crap just like a goldfish.
FR and Q trash. I never would have suspected it. Put up with it for a bit because you are all screaming crazy nutjobs…..and figured rational people would see that.
I’m done. I’ll meet FRiends in other places that haven’t yet been influenced by this cult.
You keep your Q.
Just so we’re clear. YOU allowed them to come. YOU allowed their disease to creep.
YOU let people in here that support doxxing (Hey, Q prole that published my info……pay close attention to the Dem operative arrested for felony identity theft for doxxing.)
YOU deal with it. I’m done.
No more donations, no more participation. Enjoy who you’ve chosen to sleep with.
She was a grand old Lady.
Please delete my account. You don’t have to act out the part any more.
I get those calls and no one doxxed me.Shame to see you go, sir. I don’t think you need to do this.
I agree with his main point, that the Qooks are equivalent to libtards in their illogical, herding, seek and destroy mentality, but apparently the decision has been made (on a financial basis?) to let them not only live, but migrate here, as Q havens continue to get shutdown elsewhere. Since I’m (and many of us) aren’t paying enough in to be involved in those decisons, either you learn to live with them, or you don’t. My guess is Sessions will be fired soon, which will lead to their demise everywhere, but we’re not there yet.

Speaking from the Oval Office Thursday afternoon, President Trump responded to new calls by Senator Jeff Flake (R-AZ) to delay a full confirmation vote for Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh until the FBI investigates sexual assault claims from nearly 40 years ago.
“I’m going to let the Senate handle that. They’ll make their decisions. They’ve been doing a good job and very professional. I’m just hearing a little bit about it because I’ve been with the president of Chile and were talking about some very important subjects. I’m sure it will all be very good. I guess the vote was a positive vote but there seems to be a delay. I’ll learn more about it as the day goes on. I just heard about it because we were together,” Trump said. “I’m going to rely on all the people, including Sen. Grassley who is doing a very good job. That is going to be a decision they are going to make and I suspect they’ll be making some decision soon whether to take a vote or do whatever else they want to do. I will be totally reliant on what Sen. Grassley and the group decides to do.

Tony Schwartz, who spent a year and a half with him as the ghostwriter for his best-selling The Art of the Deal in 1987, said the fact that Trump “has no attention span” should be an “explicit” issue in the current election. O’Donnell, who put out a tell-all book in 1991 but had kept quiet since then up until recently, wrote last month in his local paper that he’s “horrified” by the possibility of a President Trump partly because Trump’s “attention span was so small it was almost impossible to have a strategic conversation with him.”
Trump himself hasn’t exactly put these fears to rest with recent remarks. He told reporters from the Washington Post he doesn’t like to read long reports (“I want it short”), and he said on MSNBC he’s not overly worried about readying for the upcoming debates against assiduous policy wonk Hillary Clinton (“I’ve seen people do so much prep work when they get out there, they can’t speak”).
We’ve got a smorgasbord of stupid laid out for us this morning, so grab your plates!

GOP Gives Up On Repealing Obamacare

Republican lawmakers have made it clear they have no intention of repealing Obamacare in the current Congress.
Republicans in the nation’s top lawmaking body have never really wanted to get rid of Obamacare. They would prefer to present the program, which David Horowitz correctly describes as “the greatest assault on individual freedom and individual choice in our lifetimes,” as a villain and whip up sentiment against it and run against it every election. They view Obamacare as good for the business of politics. They may chip away at it from time to time or tinker with it at the margins, but make no mistake: these creatures of Washington want to keep it in place. This is the Republicans’ dirty secret.
Republicans have been promising to rip Obamacare out root and branch ever since it was enacted. They ramped up their rhetoric after the allegedly conservative-dominated Supreme Court declared the blatantly unconstitutional Obamacare law constitutional in the incoherent NFIB v. Sebelius ruling of 2012. Americans responded to this government takeover of a huge chunk of the economy by electing GOP-controlled congresses in 2010, 2012, 2014, and 2016, and by electing Donald Trump as president.
Unintimidated by the Left and sneering hack journalists, Trump began the push to bury the misnamed Affordable Care Act and as a result the individual mandate will die at the end of this year. But the bulk of the statute and related rules such as the economically suicidal pre-existing medical conditions mandate remain in place, complete with federal insurance-purchasing subsidies for people who don’t need the help, as well as the sclerotic administrative apparatus, and the odious rule that prevents health insurers from competing across state lines.
The top vote-counters in both chambers say repeal is a no-go for the rest of the year. This ought to worry conservatives because there is a good chance that when the new 116th Congress convenes Jan. 3, 2019, one or both of its chambers will be in the hands of the government healthcare-loving Democrats.
So it’s now or quite possibly never.
“I’m not going to be asking for another vote on that this year,” Senate Majority Whip John Cornyn of Texas reportedly said last week when asked about Obamacare repeal. His counterpart in the House, Steve Scalise of Louisiana, offered excuses for his party’s inaction. “We need to win this election and then get more seats next year.”
*******************The Republicans never wanted to repeal Obamacare, and now they confirm it.
First, a little reminder, from last week’s Obsession:
Woodward book breaks 93-year publishing record
The Hill ^ | September 13, 2018 | Joe Concha

Bob Woodward’s new book, “Fear: Trump in the White House,” sold more than 750,000 copies through its first day of release, the most for any title in Simon & Schuster history, according to the 94-year-old publisher.
The investigative book by the veteran Watergate reporter, who has written books about every administration dating back to President Nixon, was powered by excerpts published before the book’s public release Tuesday and President Trump’s public rejection of it. Trump called the book “a con on the public” consisting of quotes that are “made up frauds” designed to boost Democrats ahead of the 2018 midterm elections.
Of course it is.
Unless George Soros bought them all.
Of course he did.
Didn’t the media tell us Hillary was going to win the election, or that Trump colluded with Russia? WHY SHOULD WE BELIEVE THEM WHEN THEY LIE TO US ABOUT LEFTY BOOK SALES?
#2: “Unless George Soros bought them all.”
Yes, in a way. These books were bought by PACs, think tanks, etc. They will be handed out as freebies and swag at their “events”.
Anyone who has the slightest familiarity with publishing knows that these purchases were not driven by individual sales. Even the lib reviewers say the prose is stiff and wooden, dull, and almost unreadable.
It’s believable. Subscriptions and sales are off the hook in all categories for the left and trashing President Trump whether we like it or not. The left is a self sustaining entity and nothing the right says or does penetrates it. Hell..the President spends half his time responding to their garbage.
Of course, denial is a helluva drug :
CNN, MSNBC, and all the news broadcasts on the alphabet channels are getting dismal ratings yet Woodward’s book sales are going through the roof? The leftist intellectuals read but not their electorate. Looks like mass buying to me. You’ll see copies of the book in Democrat headquarters and precinct offices around the country, and in the Dollar Tree and 99 Cent stores in time for Christmas!
CNN and MSNBC combined beat FOX by at least a million every single night. Maddow regularly beats or ties Hannity. New York Times and Washington Post subscriptions are way up. Those are facts. FOX is a tiny bubble and half of the (FOX) content is anti-Trump drivel.
Greetings, good people! The Darnold’s Very Bad Week is now extending its tour for a second week, due to high ticket sales :
Bob Woodward’s New Book Reveals a ‘Nervous Breakdown’ of Trump’s Presidency
The Washington Post ^ | Tuesday, September 4, 2018 | Philip Rucker and Robert Costa
Posted on 9/4/2018, 10:52:29 AM by kristinn
John Dowd was convinced that President Trump would commit perjury if he talked to special counsel Robert S. Mueller III. So, on Jan. 27, the president’s then-personal attorney staged a practice session to try to make his point.
In the White House residence, Dowd peppered Trump with questions about the Russia investigation, provoking stumbles, contradictions and lies until the president eventually lost his cool.
“This thing’s a goddamn hoax,” Trump erupted at the start of a 30-minute rant that finished with him saying, “I don’t really want to testify.”
The dramatic and previously untold scene is recounted in “Fear,” a forthcoming book by Bob Woodward that paints a harrowing portrait of the Trump presidency, based on in-depth interviews with administration officials and other principals.
Woodward writes that his book is drawn from hundreds of hours of interviews with firsthand participants and witnesses that were conducted on “deep background,” meaning the information could be used but he would not reveal who provided it. His account is also drawn from meeting notes, personal diaries and government documents.
The book is a total hit job based on a mix of gossip, purloined documents and betrayals.
A lot of what the Post thinks is damaging to Trump actually makes him look good to his supporters, like the rant about Afghanistan.
the excerpts above reveal that President Trump is doing his job. I fail to see from the two examples where the issue is.
1. He does a mock meeting with Mueller, and he’s convinced in just a few minutes, that he DOESN’T want to testify.
2. He’s upset with the way Afghanistan war that he inherited is conducted. He shows aggravation with the generals. Ok? What’s wrong with that?
To: no-to-illegalsSetting his leftism aside, what should we expect from a guy that wants to sell books?”The Trump White House is a well-oiled machine?”
I read the article, the portrayal of Trumps temperament seems consistent with others. Is anyone surprised? I like him, voted for him, will again in 2020. I thought he was crazy long before the 2016 campaign, but I’ve come to accept that his brand of loony is what’s needed to shake up DC and the GOP.
The anti-Trump hype swirling around Watergate scoop reporter Bob Woodward’s new book about the president has boosted “Fear” to Number 1 on the Amazon Top 100 list, and it won’t even be available until 9/11.
” Fear: Trump in the White House” is selling fast in pre-sales and Amazon said it is the top seller among political books and in a day where multiple outlets published explosive excerpts the book jumped from 12th place to first place in under six hours.
Don’t hold your breath.
On second thought, DO hold your breath. I’ll be back next Monday to check up on you.
