At The American Thinker, Patricia McCarthy writes about the failure of the Obamacare repeal at the hands of Cuckservatives who pose as Republicans when they are running for re-election and need your vote.
Yesterday, seven Republicans in name only – Sens. Shelley Moore Capito (W.V.), Susan Collins (Maine), Dean Heller (Nev.), John McCain (Ariz.), Rob Portman (Ohio), Lamar Alexander of (Tenn.), and Lisa Murkowski (Alaska) – voted not to repeal major portions of Obamacare, Obama’s dreadful legacy that has, for millions of Americans, virtually destroyed the health insurance industry and access to their actual health care. Only members of Congress were allowed to keep their doctors and keep their plans. That was the promise Obama made to every American. It was a lie.
These seven senators have betrayed their party and the people who elected them. Betrayal is common among people without conscience. Yes, McCain has demonstrated prodigious conscience in the past, but no more. He long ago became a tool of the left. That is what the word “maverick” means when applied to John McCain. It was Arthur Miller who wrote that “betrayal is the only truth that sticks.” And stick it does. Not one of these people should be re-elected.
In opposition to the most basic of conservative principles, those seven senators are wedded to the welfare state and to expanding it, despite the fact that the nation is trillions of dollars in debt. They obviously oppose the conservative tenet of personal responsibility, as they are promoting increased dependency among Americans, the notion that persons other than themselves should pay for their medical needs.
These senators claim to be representing their constituents, but they are not. They are self-serving sops for the left and the lobbyists who fill their coffers. They are sell-outs.
Betrayal is always an inside job. With the exception of Collins, long a lefty RINO, these senators all voted numerous times to repeal the deadly bill that has bankrupted thousands of businesses, sent doctors into early retirement, and left millions with no insurance at all. And then there are the costs for those who did fall for the trap and enroll: they now cannot afford their premiums or their deductibles. Everyone knows this, including those seven senators who betrayed those of us who elected them. Do they care? Not one bit. They are happy to condemn the rest of us to the progressive dream of single-payer, the kind of system that rations care in the cruelest possible way. It’s the kind of system that makes people wait months and years for needed care or denies it altogether in the name of rationing or fairness. There is nothing fair about it; it’s sadistic. But it will never affect them, so who cares? They have nothing to lose.
Meanwhile, the Club for Growth is urging President Trump to repeal the regulations that allow congress to pretend to be a small business allowing them to be exempt from the Obamacare law that affects all of the rest of us.
On behalf of millions of taxpayers who are members and supporters of our organizations, we urge you to direct the Office of Personnel Management (OPM) to rescind the Obamaera rule (78 Fed. Reg. 60653-01) that allows Congress to masquerade as a small business in order to force taxpayers to pay for their health insurance.
This ongoing fraud improperly allows Congress and its staff to avoid the pain the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (“Obamacare”) is inflicting on millions of other Americans. When Congress was debating Obamacare, the American people demanded that Congress subject themselves and their staff to the new system they were imposing on their fellow Americans.
Those demands worked, and before Obamacare passed the Senate in 2009, Section 1312(d)(3)(D) was included. That section requires members of Congress and their staff to buy health insurance through an Obamacare exchange, and unlike an earlier proposed version does not authorize an employer contribution toward their premiums.
The provision was set to take effect in 2014, causing panic on Capitol Hill. Members of Congress and their staff were desperate to keep their taxpayer-funded, gold-plated health care rather than go into Obamacare and pay their own way, as the law required.
After a meeting with Senate Democrats in March 2013, then-president Barack Obama personally committed to illegally exempt Congress from this provision of Obamacare. And he did. Obama directed OPM to issue a rule purporting that Congress, which has thousands of employees, is a small business and therefore: “the DC Health Link Small Business Market administered by the DC Health Benefit Exchange Authority, is the appropriate SHOP from which Members of Congress and designated congressional staff will purchase health insurance in order to receive a Government contribution.”
In this video Black Pigeon comments on the reasons why Lauren Southern’s funding source, Patreon, pulled her account and shut her down. The story should come as no surprise. On line organizations such as Patreon often have a strong SJW contingent that is not shy about violating the rights of conservatives if it will advance the leftist agenda. They are willing to censor those on the right by shutting down their sites and cutting off their funding if they have the power to do so. In this case, Ms. Southern has been doing important work on the continuing immigrant crisis situation in Europe. The Elite Media Monoculture which is also dominated by the left does not want this sort of information and news to be widely circulated and so we get the effort by Patreon to shut her down, along with other bloggers on the right.
A swarm of hate-filled SJW’s have recently been targeting conservative and right-leaning video bloggers on YouTube including Bre Faucheux and Tara McCarthy. They can do this because YouTube has a mindless policy wherein if a video receives a certain number of complaints it will be automatically shut down. The communist left is using this to silence speech that goes against the leftist narrative. And of course, it goes without saying that the alt-right is becoming more and more effective at getting out their message. YouTube and other video platforms are a very effective way to sidestep the legacy media and reach a large audience of people who are hungry for an alternative view on the events of the day and the state of society in the current year. This is naturally a threat to the left and so they are taking action to shut down “wrong-think” that is prohibited in their ideology.
Evan Sayet at Townhall.com brings us this essay in which he points out what many people at the grass-roots level on the right have known for years; the left plays by a different set of rules than does the Republican establishment. The Republicans in the beltway are obsessed and focused on their image in the media and their “decorum”; a decorum which is lacking on the left. It is this mindset that is responsible for the Republican establishment losing for decades and they continue to do so because they will not fight. They consider it beneath them.
And it is for this reason that the grass-roots have abandoned the establishment and declared them irrelevant and out of touch. Instead, we elected a fighter; Donald J. Trump.
We Right-thinking people have tried dignity. There could not have been a man of more quiet dignity than George W. Bush as he suffered the outrageous lies and politically motivated hatreds that undermined his presidency. We tried statesmanship. Could there be another human being on this earth who so desperately prized “collegiality” as John McCain? We tried propriety – has there been a nicer human being ever than Mitt Romney? And the results were always the same.
This is because, while we were playing by the rules of dignity, collegiality and propriety, the Left has been, for the past 60 years, engaged in a knife fight where the only rules are those of Saul Alinsky and the Chicago mob.
I don’t find anything “dignified,” “collegial” or “proper” about Barack Obama’s lying about what went down on the streets of Ferguson in order to ramp up racial hatreds because racial hatreds serve the Democratic Party. I don’t see anything “dignified” in lying about the deaths of four Americans in Benghazi and imprisoning an innocent filmmaker to cover your tracks. I don’t see anything “statesman-like” in weaponizing the IRS to be used to destroy your political opponents and any dissent. Yes, Obama was “articulate” and “polished” but in no way was he in the least bit “dignified,” “collegial” or “proper.”
The Left has been engaged in a war against America since the rise of the Children of the ‘60s. To them, it has been an all-out war where nothing is held sacred and nothing is seen as beyond the pale. It has been a war they’ve fought with violence, the threat of violence, demagoguery and lies from day one – the violent take-over of the universities – till today.
The problem is that, through these years, the Left has been the only side fighting this war. While the Left has been taking a knife to anyone who stands in their way, the Right has continued to act with dignity, collegiality and propriety.
With Donald Trump, this all has come to an end. Donald Trump is America’s first wartime president in the Culture War.
Here we have a video of the NPR interview with Milo Yiannopoulis that turned out to be so reasonable and went so well that the elites at NPR decided to spike the whole thing so that their listeners would not actually have an opportunity to hear it.
Former Breitbart Senior Editor MILO flew to New York specifically to take part in an extensive interview with NPR about his bestselling book, DANGEROUS. During the July 10 interview, which MILO has provided exclusive footage of, the host stated that the interview would be going live the next day. MILO was then reportedly contacted by an NPR producer that clarified that the interview would be published the following week.
When the interview was still not published, leading MILO to question why it had not gone live, he was reportedly informed that a short version of the interview would be published “sometime in August.”
When asked for comment, MILO said, “It’s perfectly obvious from the constantly shifting deadline from NPR producers and the line of questioning from the host that they were expecting a low-rent troll — someone who would assure the broadcaster’s ossified audience that anyone sympathetic to the President must be a redneck or an idiot.”
“What they got was me: an articulate, New York Times bestselling author in complete command of his material,” he noted. “If America were finally to hear a provocative, intelligent, fabulous but eminently reasonable gay free speech crusader who leans to the Right — yes, I’m still talking about myself — it would be devastating to the Left’s speech codes and dedication to political correctness and identity politics. So NPR did the only thing they could in the circumstances to protect the narrative: they nixed the interview.”
