Give us our health care and do it now

It’s our health care, it’s our freedom. The government stole it. Give it back, now.

Our government is working hard to pass a health care bill, in case you haven’t been watching. The latest news is Sen. Ted Cruz’s amendment gained the support of the House Freedom Caucus, that group of rabble rousers that the White House and the media both agree to hate.

What does his amendment do? It allows insurers to sell health insurance plans that (quick, head for the fainting couch!) do not comply with Obamacare insurance regulations.

Are you kidding? We have to fight for an amendment for private businesses to do what American private businesses have done for 200 years? Our markets are so jacked up (to use an economic technical term) that the government has to tell each and every company what to sell and to whom to sell it?

The government has stolen America’s health care. They took it in a confiscatory act disguised as a regulation to help us, no better than the British when the passed the Stamp Act (the Sugar Act, the Quartering Act, the Declaratory Acts, and the Townshend Acts).

Our government has done this and more. You say our government has no right to quarter soldiers in our homes, but in fact they are the largest landowner in the country, and west of the Mississippi they can send federal personnel to evict just about anyone they please from homes those people have bought. And they do it to save some species of fish, or bird.

The government has declared it owns the air we breathe, the water we drink, the trees, the sky, and now our bodies and our kids minds.

If we were awake enough to get our faces out of bing-watching Netflix and playing with our iPhones, we’d draft a new Declaration of Independence, from Washington D.C.

Violent war is not the answer. Taking our freedom back piece by piece is the only way to save us from a dystopian future (where a certain level of violence is acceptable, by the way).

I said all that to say this. The government has stolen our health care. They need to give it back. If that means repealing Obamacare with (gasp!) nothing to replace it until our federal lawmakers get their heads on with the face side not pointing at their derrières, they need to do that.

As Keith Richards told the pharmacist, at this point I’ll take whatever you got. But they have to do something. Cruz’s amendment is far from a perfect solution, but it’s something. Repeal with a later replace is fraught with uncertainty (we might end up with a more suffocating bill) but it’s something.

Do we have to march (as Democrats love to do, strewing their trash behind them) to the National Mall to demand our health care and our freedom back?

It’s our health care, it’s our freedom. The government stole it. Give it back, now.

Dr. Michael Brown on Donald Trump fulfilling Bible prophecy with Jerusalem announcement

Dr Michael Brown on Donald Trump fulfilling Bible prophecy with Jerusalem announcement

Many in the Jewish world believe that Jerusalem must be united and a Third Temple built before the Messiah can come. Christians have a similar interpretation of prophecy, except that it pertains to the 2nd coming of the Messiah. Dr. Michael Brown has perspectives on both ideas as a Messianic Jewish believer in Jesus Christ.

In this video, he discusses whether or not President Trump announcing recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel fulfills Bible prophecy. Spoiler: He doesn’t know, but he points to those who believe so. He also points out the hypocrisy of Muslim leaders attacking Jews in Israel for what a gentile in the United States announced.

Inside the Mitch McConnell circus

Inside tMitch McConnell circus

The sad thing is, it is truly a circus.  The grassroots want Mitch McConnell out of the Senate, and he is telling loud and clear that the answer is No.  It’s no different than the “mouse” trying to get the “wolf’ in their place and make a break for it.  Hey, it’s simply just cold outside you know.

There is a group of conservatives that will always protest the likes of McConnell and they were around when Hoover, Ford, and Bush 41 screwed things up.  There just simply is not enough of them.  For real change to happen all Republicans must unite with the good guys and gals that work hard to do what is right, and winning elections regardless is not one of them.

King Mitch is the star of the stupidest show on Earth

https://www.conservativereview.com/articles/king-mitch-is-the-star-of-the-stupidest-show-on-earthWhat a circus! Everything to tantalize the senses from hearing the pompous moralites, to witnessing a Goldman Sachs carnival barker, to smelling the odor coming from the trunk-to-tail-linked highest echelons of the Republican Party. Listen to that calliope play!

And sex? We got it. Anything you want, allegations abound, and we can spend months talking about it, putting everyone’s focus on it, tweeting hot takes about it — all to make the race a sideshow about who is more moral and ethical. Because that’s how you put on the stupidest show on earth.

New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy eyeing 2020 with Puerto Rico visit

New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy eyeing 2020 with Puerto Rico visit

The newly-elected, progressive Governor of New Jersey (ex-Goldman Sachs executive Phil Murphy) is already eyeing 2020.

Murphy led a delegation yesterday to visit Puerto Rico, three months after Hurricane Maria. Digging further, a press release listed an extensive delegation including some curious choices, like appointed health officials from small towns with heavy Spanish-speaking (though not necessarily Puerto Rican-heavy) populations. It also includes the head of a leading Northeastern utility, PSE&G.

Last I checked, PSE&G has absolutely no business in Puerto Rico.

Ostensibly, this is for “relief efforts.” But no source document I could find, including that mentions actual relief efforts. No mention of what’s being brought down there. I suspect that’s because they probably aren’t bringing any relief supplies, no medicine, no equipment. Nothing. It’s just meetings, optics, maybe “fact finding.”

It should be obvious what’s really going on here.

Mainland public officials are going to Puerto Rico to recruit people — Puerto Ricans are birthright American citizens, have been since 1917 — to move to the mainland.

Upon arrival, those Puerto Ricans can legally claim “domicile” and register to vote (that is, if they were citizens to begin with) within any of our 50 states.

But Murphy’s team is looking to pack his state — a deep blue New Jersey which went for Hillary by a 55%-42% margin last year — and other likely settlement destinations (count on them also being blue states) with even more likely Democratic voters.

Murphy just got elected by a double-digit margin in New Jersey, ending eight years of term-limited and integrity-limited Republican Chris Christie’s bad beach manners. He does not take office until January 16, 2018.

Murphy does not need more help in re-election.

This is about the next presidential election.

The progressives are already packing the voter rolls.

But this trip is, very likely, using public funds, whether from Murphy’s transition budget or elsewhere. Given New Jersey’s legendary and current budget problems,

Call this what it is: A taxpayer-funded, Democratic voter-registration drive.

This guy is running for President. He’s already working on votes.

And bet that his delegation is recruiting Puerto Ricans to move to the mainland. Of course, those Puerto Ricans — already citizens — would become eligible to vote in the next Presidential election.

How that use of taxpayer money is legally suspect. These expenditures are subjects that are within the jurisdiction of the Justice Department (which has used its discretion to investigate matters of far less potential impact) to inquire.
