    Today’s Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) I’m in a hurry this morning as I rush to head out for vacation through Christmas day (Campaign Updates will be sporadic through that time), so this will just be a series of short takes on news that everyone should be aware of today. First, Tuesday was a huge day from a policy standpoint for the Trump Administration: This was the most important policy news from Tuesday, regardless of what the fake news media tries to tell you. – The Trump Administration is planning to reverse the insane Obama-era school discipline rules...

    Today’s Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) Hey, lookey here – the 302 apparently exists after all! – Waiting until the very last possible moment, Robert Mueller and his gang of Clinton/Obama thugs finally, at long last, produced a document purporting to be the orginal FBI 302 form from the FBI’s entrapment interview with General Mike Flynn. The production of the key document comes just hours before today’s scheduled sentencing hearing, and the document is heavily redacted. Because of course it is. Les is no more.: Wait – what’s this? A big media company actually did the right thing...

    The midterm elections were, to an important extent, a referendum on the Affordable Care Act; health care, not Donald Trump, dominated Democratic campaigning. And voters delivered a clear verdict: They want Obamacares achievements, the way it expanded coverage to roughly 20 million people who would otherwise have been uninsured, to be sustained. But on Friday, Reed OConnor, a partisan Republican judge known for weaponizing his judicial power, declared the A.C.A. as a whole protection for pre-existing conditions, subsidies to help families afford coverage, and the Medicaid expansion unconstitutional. Legal experts from both right and left ridiculed his reasoning...
  • The Truth Emerges: US Border Patrol Not Responsible For Young Girl's Death, Her Father Confirms

    Last week, politicians and members of the media expressed outrage over the tragic death of a seven-year-old girl who died shortly after illegally crossing the US border with her father.  The details of her passing are heart-wrenching.  Border hawks blamed her parent for putting her life at risk by bringing her on the dangerous journey, while critics of the president's approach to immigration policy held up the incident as an example of the administration's inhumanity and callousness.  Many in the press certainly had their preferred framing: The 7-year-old was excited about a new life in the U.S. Maybe she would...

    Todays Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) Why is Robert Mueller so desperate to keep the original Flynn 302 hidden?: Andy McCarthy, who teams with Victor Davis Hanson as the only two writers worth reading anymore at The National Review, has a piece out this morning in which he asks the single most key point in the effort to frame General Mike Flynn: Where is the FBIs 302 form from his January 24, 2017 interview with Peter Strzok and another agent? In their most recent court filing submitted on Friday, Mueller and his team did present a 302 form...

    AP via Washington Times ^ | December 16th, 2018 | By Ricardo Alonso-Zaldivar
    WASHINGTON A federal judges ruling that the Obama health law is unconstitutional has landed like a stink bomb among Republicans, whove seen the politics of health care flip as Americans increasingly value the overhauls core parts, including protections for pre-existing medical conditions and Medicaid for more low-income people. While the decision by the Republican-appointed judge in Texas was sweeping, it has little immediate practical impact because the Affordable Care Act remains in place while the legal battle continues, possibly to the Supreme Court. HealthCare.gov , the governments site for signing up, was taking applications Saturday, the deadline in most...

    Todays Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) Paris Burning Update: Things got calmer on the streets of Gay Pareee this weekend, as 8,000 heavily-armored riot police became more efficient and effective with their use of tear gas, pepper spray and water cannons to placate the masses. Officials estimated the crowds of Yellow Vest protesters mounted to just 66,000 or so, about half of what they had to deal with last week, and by the end of Saturday had arrested only 168 souls. This is what boy Prime Minister Emanuel Macron and his Climate Change enforcers call progress. Its a...

    On Friday the special counsel released documents rebutting claims from Michael Flynns lawyers that they entrapped the former Trump official, writing: A sitting National Security Advisor, former head of an intelligence agency, retired Lieutenant General, and 33 year veteran of the armed forces knows he should not lie to federal agents. Fox News chief intelligence correspondent Catherine Herridge noted Friday that some critics of Mueller have argued Flynn was treated worse than Hillary Clinton, a comment that drew an eyeroll from Smith. Seriously? Smith asked. Yeah, thats what [critics] point to, Herridge said. Well, let them point, Smith continued. I...

    Dozens of news outlets reported that America has the most mass shooters in the world. Many say that shows America needs more gun control. CNN claimed that "the U.S. has the most mass shootings". The WSJ reported that "U.S. leads the world in mass shootings." Nearly every major media outlet and former President Obama said the same. But the claim is based on just one study, and the author of that study, Adam Lankford, would not release his data to other gun reseachers in the field. Economist John Lott argues that Lankford's study has many flaws. Lott is the author...

    Today’s Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) Huh. Guess congress did something about ObamaCare after all. – The stain on our nation’s healthcare system that his ObamaCare was declared unconstitutional by a federal judge in Texas on Friday, and you’ll never guess why. Remember last year, when we were all complaining that the Republican congress had failed to do anything effective to get rid of the atrocity? Remember when John McCain proudly cast the deciding vote in the dead of night, sneering in his belief that he had, in his final major act as a senator, saddled the nation...

    Federal prosecutors in Manhattan are investigating whether President Trumps 2017 inaugural committee misspent some of the record $107 million it raised from donations, people familiar with the matter said. The criminal probe by the Manhattan U.S. attorneys office, which is in its early stages, also is examining whether some of the committees top donors gave money in exchange for access to the incoming Trump administration, policy concessions or to influence official administration positions, some of the people said. Giving money in exchange for political favors could run afoul of federal corruption laws. Diverting funds from the organization, which was registered...

    Todays Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) Whoa, whoa, whoa! Ted, youre not supposed to say that out loud. California Rep. Ted Lieu is one of the most execrable members of congress. In addition to the mere fact of being a Democrat, Lieu joins Maxine Waters in combining the worst combination of character traits any human being can possess: Overwhelming arrogance mixed with massive stupidity. On Wednesday, these traits led Lieu to let one of the many Democrat unspoken cats out of the bag on national television, telling CNNs vapid host Brianna Keiller the following: I would love...
