Secure-Borders Movement Sweeps Europe/ Obamacare Finally Dead?

The populist uprising for secure borders continues to sweep across Europe, changing the political face of the Continent permanently. This is huge news that the Fake News media do not want Americans to know about. The New York Times reported about the latest story:

Belgium’s prime minister, under pressure from the right and left, submitted his resignation Tuesday in the face of a populist revolt over his migration policy, which opponents say threatens Belgian sovereignty.

Prime Minister Charles Michel’s problems echo those of other European leaders, including President Emmanuel Macron of France, who are trying to maintain centrist governments in the face of opposition from both flanks.

Right-wing allies of Mr. Michel’s center-right government abandoned him earlier this month, angry over his migration policy which had Belgium join a United Nations accord that agrees to share the burdens of immigration.

Friends, do not despair about president Trump’s inability so far to get funding for the border wall. It will get built eventually and will be part of an international movement against globalism and mass migration.

This movement is changing the world. Big movements like this take time to take full effect. Be patient. Momentum is on our side.

Trump Confronts Media Bias… Again

President Trump has been “at war” with the Fake News media for several years. But he ratcheted up the ‘war’ recently after Saturday Night Live did a sketch that impugned him.

He responded that the media are, in effect, making massive illegal campaign contributions to Democrat candidates by attacking Republicans and conservatives and always making Democrats look good and giving them lots of friendly air time. Fox News reported:

Donald Trump called for courts to test NBC and “Saturday Night Live” in a fiery tweet on Sunday that followed the final airing of the … show until the New Year.

“SNL” wrapped up a year of political humor directed at the Trump administration with a parody of the Christmas movie “It’s a Wonderful Life,” in which it posited a world wherein Donald Trump, played by Alec Baldwin, was never elected president of the United States.

The sketch, which featured returning guest stars Ben Stiller as Michael Cohen, Robert De Niro as Robert Mueller and Matt Damon as Brett Kavanaugh, showed Trump being led through a Christmas party in a world where Hillary Clinton became president. As each person from his administration approaches, Trump learns that him not being president worked out for the benefit of everyone. For example, the sketch suggested that he and Melania got a divorce and remarried others, Kavanaugh never made it onto the Supreme Court and Mueller was able to spend more time with his kids instead of having to “investigate some idiot for treason.”

Trump responded to the sketch on Sunday morning by jabbing both the …show and NBC.

Trump tweeted: “A REAL scandal is the one-sided coverage, hour by hour, of networks like NBC & Democrat spin machines like Saturday Night Live. It is all nothing less than unfair news coverage and Dem commercials. Should be tested in courts, can’t be legal? Only defame & belittle! Collusion?”

Trump is absolutely correct. This media bias, from the TV networks to newspapers to magazines to cable TV news to Hollywood, has amounted to hundreds of billions of dollars in free coverage for Democrats over the past few decades.

This certainly is a form of ‘collusion’ with the goal of steering elections to the Democrats.

Meanwhile most of these anti-Trump entertainers are sickos. Alec Baldwin is an out-of-control, wacked-out low-life. Who could forget when he verbally abused his own 11-year old daughter in a famous recorded phone call, calling her a “rude, thoughtless little pig”. Nice guy, right?

No, a typical liberal – extreme, emotional and vicious. Robert De Niro is a long-time crony of accused Hollywood sex abuser Harvey Weinstein and certainly knew what Weinstein was doing. Ditto Matt Damon. And on and on.

How many times have we seen the media taking scathing pot shots at Hillary or Obama?

Virtually never. Obama was their floppy-eared golden boy. Even though Obama ruined the country and the economy the media acted as if he could do no wrong.

Obama even was given the Nobel peace prize in 2009 after only a few months in office, before he ever accomplished anything. That was perhaps the most glaring case ever of pro-Obama bias among the globalist elite.

Yet despite attacks on the president 24/7, Donald Trump has higher approval numbers than Obama did at this point in his presidency. has never seen such bias against a president even in the days of George W. Bush and Ronald Reagan.

Still president Trump has gotten much more done in less than two years in office than most presidents do in eight years.

Is Obamacare Finally Dead?

Obamacare has been a disaster by any objective reasoning. Many of its insurance ‘exchanges’ collapsed in just a short period of time, premiums skyrocketed and millions lost their health insurance plans.

Liberals in the media never discuss those who have been hurt by Obamacare; they only talk about those who benefit and get something for free.

This is socialism writ large. In short there is never a cost-benefit analysis. Agence France Presse (AFP) reports:

Outraged Democrats vowed to appeal a federal judge’s ruling that could undo the US health care law known as Obamacare, saying on Saturday that they will use their new power in Congress to hold Republicans responsible and “expose their lies.”

US District Judge Reed O’Connor ruled Friday that the health care law, officially known as the Affordable Care Act (ACA), is unconstitutional.

The White House said it expects the ruling to be appealed to the Supreme Court. For now, it said in a statement, “the law remains in place.”

But Democrats, who have seen the law survive scores of legal and legislative attacks, vowed to fight back, saying health coverage of millions of Americans is at stake.

So Obamacare could be terminated if the case goes to the Supreme Court. Very interesting. After Democrats have used the courts to implement liberal policies for many decades it may go the other way in major fashion in this one big case.

And yes millions are indeed covered under Obamacare but at a very high cost not only in dollars but in harm to others. In other words socialism is at the very best a zero-sum game and often much worse, i.e., for every person helped one or two or even more people get hurt. AFP reports:

In his ruling Friday, the Texas-based judge said that the full Obamacare program was unconstitutional because Congress, in its 2017 tax overhaul, eliminated a penalty for anyone lacking health insurance who failed to sign up for the program.

The 2012 case was over whether such a penalty was legal — but now that it is gone, O’Connor said, the whole ACA should be stricken down because that provision is “the keystone” of the program.

… Republicans “know that they can’t repeal the ACA in Congress. So they’ve continued their crusade through the courts,” tweeted Democratic Senator Elizabeth Warren, a consumer-protection activist. “The ACA is still the law of the land.”

Imagine that – a far-left Democrat like Warren saying that Republicans are ruling through the courts. Yet this is one single Republican victory through the courts while there have been thousands of such rulings over the decades favoring the liberal point of view.

Look at the Trump administration executive orders that have been arbitrarily struck down by judges just to get back at Trump but with no real basis in law (Keystone pipeline, travel ban, trannnybaggers in the military, etc.). Meanwhile both abortion and gay marriage were legalized nationally through the Supreme Court.

Democrats have ruled through the courts for decades in order to get things passed that they cannot get through the ballot box. This “legislating from the bench” is not what the Founders intended the courts for. AFP reports:

Polls consistently show strong public support for the ACA guarantee of coverage regardless of pre-existing health conditions — an issue Democrats used with great success in last month’s midterm elections as they won control of the House of Representatives.

That is baloney. Republicans lost because a whopping 45 cowardly Republicans, mostly anti-Trumpers, resigned from the House in 2018, leaving those seats open.

And yes there would naturally be strong public support for covering pre-existing conditions but the issue is much more complicated than Democrats want us to know. No insurance company can survive with such a mandate. That would be like allowing homeowners to buy fire insurance after their house has burned down.

The problem with pre-existing conditions is real but Democrats simply want to shift it to the insurance companies and their paying customers. So suggests that rich liberals in America pool their money and start an insurance company for people with pre-existing conditions. Bingo. Problem solved.

We certainly need to offer some help to tens of millions of Americans with pre-existing condition and to those who cannot deal with high health-care costs. Many have been victims of Obama’s terrible economy; they have lost their jobs, or could not find jobs and thus their potential to be covered under an employer health plan, or to pay for their own insurance, has been undermined.

The improving economy under president Trump is a good start. It must continue. In the long run that will help many millions more than Obamacare ever could have hoped to do…. if Obamacare ever really worked as promised.

Democrats are ‘the Party of the Rich’

Forbes magazine recently reported:

Democrats, in fact, now represent 41 out of the top 50 wealthiest congressional districts — and all 10 of the top 10 wealthiest districts, according to a recent election study.

For decades Democrats have claimed that Republicans are “the party of the rich”. has debunked this myth often. And Forbes offers more proof. estimates that wealthy Democrats, largely on the East and West coasts and in our cities, control as much as 70% of the nation’s wealth.

Another Terrorist was Known to Police

Over and over we see people perpetrating acts of violence and terrorism who are well-known to police and to law enforcement, yet nothing is done about them. Breitbart News reported:

Court filings by defense lawyers for Sayfullo Saipov, the man who used a rented truck to kill eight people on a Manhattan bike path on Halloween 2017, indicate the perpetrator was known to the F.B.I. and caught on a wiretap the day before he carried out his deadly attack.

The New York Times reported …that the filings did not include transcripts of the conversations or indicate whether Saipov made any threatening comments on the recording.

Defense lawyers said they obtained materials from the F.B.I. that included “numerous audio recordings of conversations between Mr. Saipov and various targets of F.B.I. surveillance.” Most of these conversations were apparently conducted in the Uzbek language.

This is just the latest example. We know that FBI was warned over and over in many different forms about the 9/11 hijackers but did nothing.

In another such case, the Parkland, Florida school shooter of February 2018 was well known to school officials, fellow students, local police and even the FBI. But nothing was done about him.

That Parkland story has developed a new angle. In the November mid-term elections we all saw how mush corruption and absurdity there is in super-liberal Broward County, Florida. Now Jim Hoft at The Gateway Pundit reports about the mass high school shooting last February in the same county:

The Gateway Pundit was among the first news organizations in the country to question the handling of the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida by Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel. Now it appears Israel’s time in that office will be drawing to a close.

From the instant it was learned that the Parkland School Resource Officer assigned to Parkland by the Broward County Sheriff’s office (Scott Peterson) stood down and refused to enter the building while shooter Nikolas Cruz was still unloading clips into his classmates, Sheriff Scott Israel has insisted that the BSO officers who arrived on the scene did not delay their entry into the building.

New forensic evidence, animations by the Florida Department of Law Enforcement, and court proceedings have now proven that in addition to Peterson, six officers hid behind cars and delayed entry into the school for 11 precious minutes. The suffering from inside Marjory Stoneman Douglas could be heard as they stood by and did nothing. By the time BSO officers accompanied by the Coral Springs Police Department entered the building, Cruz had already left the premises. If the new report is correct, it means that the Broward County Sheriff’s command staff members who testified for the FDLE inquiry flat-out lied.

Governor-elect Ron DeSantis vowed to fire Sheriff Israel during the campaign when he appeared with Andrew Pollack, father of slain student Meadow Pollack. 77 Florida House Republicans co-signed a letter calling on Governor Rick Scott to fire Israel, but he instead appointed the investigative commission in order to avoid controversy going into the US Senate election.

DeSantis recently reaffirmed his plans to (fire) Israel in an interview with the Palm Beach Post, citing it as one of his top priorities once assuming power in early January.

Good for DeSantis. Look at that – SEVEN officers hid behind their cars or otherwise refused to enter the building. On the other hand, you would see seven courageous, conservative US military members or cops running into the line of fire to save lives.

These corrupt, lazy and cowardly people need to be exposed and fired. They treat their jobs like a cash cow, not as their duty to uphold the law. As others suffer and die. Disgusting and shocking.

Democrat Congressman Wants to ‘Regulate’ Free Speech

We conservatives have said over and over that Democrats and liberals oppose free speech and that conservatives cherish free speech as our most important liberty.

There is a reason for this: In an open debate conservatives always win. calculates that if the Fake News media just reported honestly and neutrally and without its leftist bias that America would be 75% Republican and conservative.

Now we have an interesting proof of how Democrats really think. Congressman Ted Lieu of California, who represents one of the wealthiest districts in America near Los Angeles, recently said that he would “love to regulate the content of speech” but is prevented from doing so by the 1st Amendment to the Constitution.

This is very revealing. Lieu is a highly ‘educated’ politician but he was born in Taiwan and so perhaps he was confusing American liberty with thousands of years of oppression and cultural backwardness in Asia. Wikipedia reports about Lieu:

… Born in Taipei, Taiwan, Lieu immigrated with his family to Cleveland, Ohio where he grew up and graduated from Saint Ignatius High School in 1987. He graduated from Stanford University in 1991 with a B.S. in computer science and a B.A. in political science. He graduated magna cum laude with a J.D. from Georgetown University Law Center in 1994, where he was editor-in-chief of the Georgetown Law Journal and received four American Jurisprudence awards.

Look at all of the censorship of conservatives by Facebook, Google, YouTube and Twitter. And at our universities. All left-wing institutions.

Why? What are they afraid of?

They are afraid of the truth because the truth always comes out and the truth always wins.
