This Stinks

Rush is fond of saying ‘If it’s good for democrats, it’s bad for America.’ Such was the case yesterday when Puerto Rico voted to become the 51st state. It has to be ratified by congress, but I have faith that backstabbing scum like Ryan, Kinzinger, McCain, Collins, and Graham will join the democrats in a spirit of “bipartisanship.” Only 23% of the population voted and it was 97% in favor of statehood. Hugo Chavez never got 97%. The unemployment rate is 45% and the residents live off taxpayer dollars. They just defaulted on the federal loans they got and declared bankruptcy.

Puerto Rico voters back becoming 51st state in referendum marred by boycott

SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico – Puerto Rico’s governor announced that the U.S. territory has overwhelmingly chosen statehood in a nonbinding referendum Sunday held amid a deep economic crisis that has sparked an exodus of islanders to the U.S. mainland.

Many believe the island’s territorial status has contributed to its 10-year economic recession, which has prompted nearly half a million Puerto Ricans to flee to the U.S. mainland and was largely sparked by decades of heavy borrowing and the elimination of federal tax incentives.

WHAT IT COMES DOWN TO IS THIS: WITH A POPULATION OF 3.5 MILLION, PUERTO RICO WOULD LIKELY HAVE 5 CONGRESSIONAL DISTRICTS AND TWO SENATORS. EVERY LAST ONE WOULD BE A WELFARE-SUCKING, BRIBE-TAKING DEMOCRAT. THAT’S WHAT THE DEMS ARE HOPING FOR.

Puerto Rico will now put its “Tennessee plan” into action, meaning its governor will choose two senators and five representatives to go to Washington, D.C., to request statehood.

President Trump signaled during his presidential campaign that he is open to Puerto Rico officially becoming a state.

Puerto Rico previously voted in favor of becoming a state in 2012, but statehood opponents said the voter turnout was not high enough to accurately reflect will of the Puerto Rican people. Some fear that they will make the same case this time around.

http://thehill.com/homenews/news/337347-puerto-rico-votes-in-favor-of-statehood

At the time of reporting, over 97% of voters chose statehood. The referendum is “non-binding” and would only move forward if Congress approved of it, which most likely will not happen considering the island’s debt of over $70 billion and its 45% poverty rate.

If granted statehood, Puerto Rico would be granted access to federal funds and in that same breath would be the same as any other U.S. State.

FALN Terrorist Leader Welcomed As Hero At The Puerto Rican Day Parade In NYC

Obama cut 20 years off of this scumbag’s prison sentence and set him free 3 days before Donald Trump was inaugurated.
Parade organizers initially tried to honor Lopez Rivera with an official award, but a mass pull out by corporate sponsors and key regular attendees over that move caused Lopez Rivera to decline the honor. However, Lopez Rivera was highlighted just by riding on the front display that moved down 5th Avenue.
“I feel good about being here,” Lopez Rivera said to reporters as he exited a van to enter the parade. He pounded his chest yelling, “Que viva Puerto Rico!”
“This parade is for the Puerto Rican public,” he added.
Bottom line is that these politicians marched with and honored a sworn terrorist whose faln attacked and murdered in our city. That is unforgivable. These politicians must politically pay for their betrayals.”
Puerto Rico has a poverty rate of 45 percent, 12.4 percent unemployment, and 86 percent of residents do not speak English in the home, but the island receives $22 billion in federal subsidies. The top income tax rate is 4 percent and residents are exempt from paying $2 billion in federal income taxes. That explains why 61 percent of residents voted for statehood in 2012, but nothing happened.

Color me shocked and amazed!

May 4, 2017: The House of Representatives today unanimously passed U.S. Representative Martha McSally’s legislation H.R. 2192, a standalone two-page bill to prevent Members of Congress from exempting themselves from the American Health Care Act.

McSally Urges House to Pass Bill Striking AHCA Exemptions for Members of Congress

“Any law we pass that applies to our constituents must apply equally to Members of Congress as well. Anything short of that is hypocrisy. Congress must abide by the laws it passes and should be treated no differently than other hardworking Americans,” said Rep. McSally. “My measure eliminates double standards by preventing Members of Congress from exempting themselves from American Health Care Act.”

Rolled Again

Did I miss something? Did we win anything last November? You wouldn’t know it by the mugging republicans took at the hands of their pals the democrats during the budget fiasco that was just passed. Democrats get their way nearly all the time no matter who has the majority. They have discovered, much to their delight, that there is virtually nothing the GOP is willing to fight for. They have been terrified of the specter of a government shutdown since the former president, Ben T. Penis, got Newt Gingrich to back down over a staged government shutdown that was pre-arranged to lay the blame on republicans. They know that the press will blame them 100%, all of the time.
The republican elite have proven time and again they care less about working with President Trump than about keeping their status among the DC party crowd. It leaves conservatives all across the country asking themselves: “What have we won?”

HOUSE LEADERSHIP LAUNCHED A COUP AGAINST AMERICAN VOTERS THIS WEEK
Paul Ryan and House Republicans included strict language in their trillion dollar budget that prevents any and all funding of President Trump’s border wall.

Paul Ryan’s new budget bill will fund:
** Planned Parenthood
** Central American illegal immigrant centers
** Domestic spending will increase
** No cuts in funding to EPA despite Trump’s promises
** Continue payment on Obamacare subsidies
** No funding cuts to sanctuary cities

But the House budget includes language that FORBIDS the President of the United States of building a border wall with Mexico.

Paul Ryan’s bill is so bad Democrats are fundraising off of the plan in celebration.

Frustrated conservatives ready to start winning under Trump
The spending deal struck over the weekend to avoid a partial government shutdown is just the latest failure of GOP-controlled Washington to deliver for conservative activists. To them, that bill is part of a larger pattern of putting off fights with the Democrats for another day only for tomorrow to never come — a trend they were already experiencing with run-of-the-mill Republicans, but one they hoped would end under Trump.

Conservatives Fume Over Complete Concession To Democrats On Budget Deal

How do we win Congress and Presidency and still get this as a result?
Conservatives are blasting the five-month, fiscal 2017 spending deal written by Republicans and Democrats as nothing short of a “cave in” by the GOP despite its control of both the House, Senate and White House.

The Gentlemen Losers Strike Again
And this spending bill is the same kind of crapola Congress sent to Obama year after year.
Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer are getting everything they wanted.
Meanwhile the Gentlemen Losers — Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell — get one more opportunity to prove that they really are nice guys who want to work with the Democrats.
Good grief. It’s infuriating.
But this pile of crap is just more of the same.
And isn’t this exactly why Americans voted for Donald Trump?
We’re sick and tired of this nonsense.

Speaker Paul Ryan Defends Pile of Crap Budget Plan that Excludes Funding for Trump Wall
Ryan defended his 1,665 pages long budget that includes an average of approximately 210 words per page — —or about twice as long as the stimulus law (the “American Recovery and Reinvestment Act”) that President Barack Obama signed less than a month after his inauguration in 2009.
Ryan and GOP leaders inserted language that specifically restricts any and all funding of the Trump border wall.

We didn’t elect Donald Trump just to have Paul Ryan put on Nancy Pelosi’s skirt and pearls and deliver for the Democrats.

PAUL RYAN UNLEASHED: New House Budget RESTRICTS ANY AND ALL FUNDING of Trump Border Wall

Chuck Schumer: Trump ‘Did Not Play Much of a Role’ in Budget Negotiations
“Our Republican colleagues I give them a lot of credit — Mitch McConnell — we worked very well together — Leader Pelosi, Speaker Ryan as well,” Schumer said, adding the names of the Democrats and Republicans in both chambers responsible for leading on appropriations.
“We all worked as a team,” Schumer said. “And we came up with a very good solution for the people here.
“But it shows we Democrats want to work with our Republican colleagues,” Schumer said. “And when they work with us, it’s great.”

White House Pushes Budget Deal As A Win For Republicans After Democrats Get Under Trump’s Skin
Congressional leaders reached an agreement Sunday night on a budget that would keep the government open through September and avoid a looming shutdown. Because the bill includes funding for Planned Parenthood, money to help Puerto Rico with a projected shortfall in Medicaid and restricts the allotted $1.5 billion for border security from going to the new wall, Democrats began touting it as a win.
Clearly, it frustrated President Trump.

Democrats confident they can block Trump’s agenda after spending bill win

Democrats think they have set the stage to block President Trump’s legislative priorities for years to come by winning major concessions in a spending bill to keep the government open.
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and Senate Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer (D-N.Y.) secured nearly $5 billion in new domestic spending by exploiting disagreements between Trump and GOP lawmakers over spending priorities.

Limbaugh grills Pence on budget: ‘What is the point of voting Republican?’

Host to VP: ‘We’ve been told this for 15 years, we’ll get ‘em next time’
Radio host Rush Limbaugh received a call from Vice President Mike Pence on Tuesday, and he wasn’t shy about voicing his displeasure over the 2017 budget deal.
“The Rush Limbaugh Show” rarely has guests, but a $1.2 trillion federal spending deal made between Republicans and Democrats to avoid a government shutdown prompted an interview with Mr. Pence.
The theme of the exchange boiled down to one question: “If this is what happens, Mr. Vice President, why vote Republican?”
“What is the point of voting Republican if the Democrats are gonna continue to win practically 95 percent of their objectives, such as in this last budget deal?” the conservative host asked.

There is a last ditch effort to pass a new health care bill coming. It stands not a snowball’s chance in hell of passing. The entire fiasco was orchestrated by Paul Ryan to ensure enough poison pills in it for conservatives to vote against it. The democrats know Obamacare will never go away. No government program ever does. They just suck up more and more money. As professional spenders, the liberals know once you give people something free (or at least free to THEM), it can never be taken away without a rebellion. It would not be a bit surprising if Trump decided since his own party won’t deal with him he may go to the democrats to negotiate. After all, they’re still the real power in Washington.

Obamacare Repeal Stalled by Moderate Republican Opposition
Congressman Billy Long (R-MS), a strong House leadership ally, said that he would not support the bill over concerns that the bill “strips away any guarantee that pre-existing conditions would be covered and affordable.” Long said in an interview on Monday, “They got 40 Freedom Caucus votes,” asking, “Why do they need me?”
Fred Upton, the former Energy and Commerce Committee chairman, said Tuesday he will not vote for the Obamacare repeal bill. He said, “I’ve supported the practice of not allowing pre-existing illnesses to be discriminated against from the very get-go.” Upton told WHTC this morning. “This amendment torpedos that, and I told leadership I cannot support this bill with this provision in it.”

May Day 2017

May 1 doesn’t hold a great deal of significance except to communists and socialists. I just used the title because it was handy.

Chicago Teachers Union Encouraging Teachers to Cut Class, Attend May Day Marches

But they really care about the kids…
While the Chicago Teachers Union isn’t calling for an illegal strike on Monday, as it threatened to do, it is asking that its members attend that afternoon’s Chicago May Day march, activities surrounding it begin with school rallies at 7:30am.
The CTU we all know are “for the kids,” but how can they be for those kids when they are rabble-rousing on May 1? Yes, May Day 2017 is a school day.

Congress agrees on $1 trillion deal to fund government until October 1
SCHUMER CALLS IT A GOOD DEAL… THAT’S A REAL BAD SIGN
The hard-won deal could be the first major piece of bipartisan legislation to be pushed through Congress since President Trump took office, and would provide billions of dollars for the Pentagon — but would not provide funds for his ballyhooed Mexican wall.
The deal, if passed by the full House and Senate, would also keep funding for Planned Parenthood through September and add $2 billion to the National Institutes of Health, as well as providing extra cash for opioid treatment and college grants.
“This agreement is a good agreement for the American people and takes the threat of a government shutdown off the table,” said Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer.

Expensed $13,476 in petty cash, hotels, travel after electoral defeat
Brown and her chief of staff, Elias “Ronnie” Simmons, were indicted in July 2016 on 24 counts of fraud stemming from a sham foundation created by the former congresswoman.
More than $800,000 was deposited into Brown’s Virginia-based foundation, One Door for Education, which spent only $1,200 on charity.
Federal authorities found that Brown, Elias, and Carla Wiley, the foundation’s president, spent $200,000 of the group’s funds on luxury vacations, NFL tickets, plane tickets, car repairs, and lavish events.

“Comedian” Hasan Minaj Big Flop at White House Correspondents Dinner

When one thinks of insult comics, the late funnyman Don Rickles immediately comes to mind.
[Rickles’] humor is so rude, in such bad taste, that it offends no one—it is too offensive to be offensive.
Contrast Minaj’s material to that of Rickles, who only on occasion would make a slighting remark about a fellow entertainer or politician in absentia. Minaj apparently stuck to shopworn jabs prepared long before the President and his staff announced they would not attend this year’s dinner. “
Unlike Rickles, Minaj is no “Mr. Warmth.” At least based on audience reaction, his dragging, staccato-like delivery left many barbs hanging in midair, leaving listeners wondering when they would drop. And to make matters worse, by taking multiple shots at non-attendees, both living and dead, Minaj’s quips quickly veered off into the offensive. This became most evident when the comedian evoked none other than Rickles himself, who died just over three weeks ago:
“Don Rickles died just so you wouldn’t ask him to do this gig, alright? RIP to Don Rickles, the only Donald with skin thick enough to take a joke like that.”
THIS IS A LITTLE BIT OF THAT UNFUNNY MUSLIM PUNK

“I do the show for me and for people like me, and I don’t really care how others see it, quite frankly…. We need catharsis, a place to analyze things in a different way. we see things through a different filter. We just need to break it down.”
That lack of ability to consider another point of view could explain her answer to the question, “Is there a smug liberal problem?”
“I don’t think there is.”

Full Blown Investigation

OBAMAGATE graphic

The House and Senate intelligence committees are expanding their investigation into the so-called “unmasking” controversy.

They will be auditing files from the National Security Agency and White House to determine whether identities and conversations of members of Congress or presidential candidates other than Trump were swept up during NSA surveillance of foreign leaders and whether this intelligence was misused for political purposes.

For a private U.S. citizen to be “unmasked,” or named, in an intelligence report is extremely rare and typically only done if it has some foreign intelligence value. Typically, the American is a suspect in a crime, is in danger or has to be named to explain the context of the report.

If the names were unmasked in intelligence reports and then leaked to the media for political reasons, it could constitute criminal behavior.

Government welfare is based on compulsion, not compassion

2017_03 Meals on Wheels toon

From Stephen Moore:

One of my favorite stories of American history dates back to the 19th century when Col. Davy Crockett, who fought at the Alamo, served in Congress. In a famous incident, Congress wanted to appropriate $100,000 to the widow of a distinguished naval officer.

Crockett took to the House floor and delivered his famous speech, relevant as ever: “We have the right, as individuals, to give away as much of our own money as we please in charity; but as members of Congress we have no right to so appropriate a dollar of the public money. … I am the poorest man on this floor. I cannot vote for this bill, but I will give one week’s pay to the object, and if every member of Congress will do the same, it will amount to more than the bill asks.”

Crockett was the only member of Congress who donated personally to the widow, while the members of Congress who pretended to be so caring and compassionate closed their wallets.

It all goes to show that liberal do-gooders were as hypocritical then as they are today.

Winning

So who’s winning? Barack Obama.
Yesterday Gutfeld described him as the hero at the end of the action movie who’s walking away, the bad guys’ fortress ablaze in the background. That’s how he left the White House. In shambles, full of land mines, with an army of dedicated agents ready to leak vital or damaging information at every turn to a media slavishly devoted to bringing the new president down. He sits in a mansion less than 2 miles away commanding a trained force of agitators, anarchists, and paid protesters ready to assail any republican who dares make a public appearance.

Report: Economy Adds 300,000 Jobs In President Trump’s First Month In Office
Great news, right? I mentioned this to my friend Willie the political idolater today. His answer was it was the result of Obama’s genius economic plan. For just as he used the “mess Bush left him” for his 8 long years of misery and economic stagnation he will now get credit from the media whores for any positive sign of economic growth. Can’t very well give Trump credit for knowing anything, now can they?
The CBO made their report on the AHCA yesterday. While it saves almost a half trillion dollars over 10 years the focus from the left was on the estimated 14 million who will lose coverage this year and the 26 million over 10 years that they claim will be left out. Of course, the first one with his ugly puss in front of the cameras was Schmuckie Schumer. That’s nothing new. The ‘non-partisan” office (there’s not a damn thing non-partisan in this town) is only as accurate as the information it’s given. The Obama crime family blatantly lied about the numbers so the estimate was off by at least $115 billion.

Same CBO That Praised Obamacare and Was Off by $115 Billion Pans GOP Healthcare Bill Today
In March 2010 leading democrats and their lackeys in the state-run media were “just giddy” to report that the CBO crunched some numbers and found the nationalized health care bill they were pushing would reduce the deficit by $138 billion.
It was a lie. Democrats knew it was a lie.
But, after several backroom deals, they rammed the bill through Congress anyway.
Then in May of 2010 the CBO corrected the numbers and said Obamacare will cost taxpayers at least $115 billion more than promised. Democrats pulled a fast one on the American public.
Republican Senators pointed out the deceit in a 2010 video:

Democrats promised that Obamacare would cost $940 billion when they rammed it through Congress. The actual cost has gone up with each revision.
A recent report says Obamacare will cost $2.6 trillion – nearly three times as much as Democrats predicted.
Today the far left CBO panned the Republican healthcare bill.
The Trump White House slammed the CBO’s report.

The plan is already facing resistance from conservatives who say the bill doesn’t go far enough, while more moderate Republicans have expressed concern about the bill’s defunding of Planned Parenthood and the rollback of expanded access to Medicaid.

THE MAIN DIFFERENCE IS THAT THE REPUBLICANS WANT TO PASS HEALTHCARE THAT ACTUALLY WORKS.
As I said yesterday, the democrats shoved a monstrosity through without debate so they could avoid the reconciliation process. They knew once they got it in, it would be almost impossible to remove, as are all government giveaway programs.

Obamacare Victims Tell Their Horror Stories at The White House
TRUMP, UNLIKE HIS PREDECESSOR, DOESN’T DELUDE HIMSELF THINKING HE KNOWS MORE THAN ANYBODY ABOUT ANYTHING. HE WANTS INPUT TO MAKE THE MOST INFORMED DECISIONS POSSIBLE.
“Our rates are three times what they were before Obamacare started. We have one provider in the county,” Carrie Couey of Colorado said. “We have very little options for what we can and cannot do. We are a small business, but we aren’t brick and mortar we are cattle ranchers. We can’t afford our equipment anymore if we’re paying these rates year after year after year. Our food source is in jeapardy because of this heath care law.”

All the while, Obama sits back, smiles, and contemplates how to spend the $60 million he’ll rake in to write a bunch of lies (or have Bill Ayers do it for him) and watch his minions do his dirty work.

The GOP’s ObamaCare replacement will boost jobs and cut taxes
Ignore the grandstanding on Capitol Hill and the noise coming from townhall protests around the nation. The Republican bill to repeal and replace ObamaCare will boost your chances of getting a job and cut your tax bill, not to mention your insurance costs.
The repeal bill — called the American Health Care Act — also will stave off a tidal wave of future Medicaid spending that threatens to drown the states and Uncle Sam in red ink.

Was Obama simply a hoax?
We have The New York Post and we have Fox News, but after that we are in a wilderness of deception. No one knows where the truth lies.
The revelation making the rounds again about Obama, how he sneaked through $221 million to his terrorist friends the Palestinian Authority during the last hours of his presidency, makes it elaborately clear that he was always in it for himself and for his pals.
For eight years Israel was betrayed and America was duped by a charmer.
He armed Iran to the teeth. The mullahs grow bolder and now Obama’s generosity is President Trump’s problem. Where did Obama get the money to enrich all those terrorists? Came from our pockets – the Constitution be damned, according to Obama and the news media that babied him every single day for eight years.
All by himself Obama proclaimed that he did not even need Congress. He said, “I’ve got a pen and I’ve got a phone” – so forget the rules.
So much, then, for the claim that Obama did not have the Constitutional right to wiretap Trump….which is the hot news of the day.
That assumes that Obama as President cared about the Constitution, taught the Constitution, or ever learned the Constitution.

Removing Two More of Obama’s Federal Jackboot Heels

The Senate recently canned two sets of regulations finalized late last year by Obama’s Department of Education.  One of them is 695 pages long!

PAY ATTENTION HERE:  These are REGULATIONS created by non-elected, federal government employees that usurp education functions that the Constitution specifically says belong to the States.

According to Sen. Ben Sasse (R-NE), not only does the federal government lack the constitutional authority to interfere in local decision-making about education, but also the REGULATION he speaks against specifically violates a LAW passed by Congress just last year!

Ben Sasse Speaks Against Federal Teacher Mandate [11:27] < WORTH VIEWING

I am fundamentally opposed to the federal government having anything to do with education.  

I believe it puts too much distance between the people making the rules and the teachers and parents who know their own kids best.

Plus, the more centralized anything is, the more people who need to be bribed or blackmailed to get decisions made that benefit those with lots of money and very few morals.

Exhibit A: The Common Core textbook scandal that Project Veritas exposed, showing textbook publishers explaining that Common Core was all about the money, not the kids.

No Child Left Behind and Common Core have both been tried and have both proven to be failures.  Constitutionally, education is a state function.  Get the feds out of education!
