If ObamaCare Is Still On the Block, What Is At Stake? … Everything!

Republicans on Capital Hill had an opportunity this week to honor their long-standing commitment to repeal ObamaCare — the Democrat party’s controversial health care regime that is merely a stepping stone toward socialized medicine. Republican efforts to repeal portions of ObamaCare (the so-called ‘Skinny Repeal’) failed yesterday to garner a simple majority in the Senate.

‘Dependence’ disguised as ‘sustenance’ can, over time, be the undoing of a great republic. That is why this remains the most significant matter that will come before this Congress, and why some Republicans in Congress still have not given up.

We published a column, back in December 2014, on what is at stake with ObamaCare; and it seems as relevant today as it was then. If you wish to read that column, entitled “ObamaCare is Heroin” … click here.

 

Today’s Big Story: This Scandal Is Yuge!

Today’s Big Story involves a burgeoning DC scandal.

It is not a new story, but only now is it coming to light. And for one reason … it involves Democrats.

More specifically, it involves the Democrat National Committee, the former chairwoman of that committee and quite a few Democrat members of Congress. And though the Liberal Media Complex has done their best to ignore it … this story is now beyond ignoring.

Today’s Big Story: Liberal Media Complex ‘Ridicules’ Trump Voters

Today’s big story concerns ongoing attempts by the Liberal Media Complex to alienate President Trump from his voters; which is a primary, if not the ultimate, objective of their ‘Russian collusion’ meme. On this point, the record was set straight today, by none other than the President’s son-in-law and advisor, Jared Kushner. To watch a video of his statement … click here.

When the administration promotes this message, their’s is a winning argument. One may wish to wager that the President’s new Communications Director, Anthony Scaramucci, had a hand in crafting Mr. Kushner’s statement. For the Trump administration … a good sign.

Today’s Big Story: Guarding the Vote

Today’s big story concerns ongoing attempts by the liberal groups to lessen the integrity of America’s elections. It’s as though the left, Democrats in particular, openly acknowledge their reliance on the votes of non-citizens, and on other untoward shenanigans, in order to win elections.

If Collusion Is a Crime, So Is Lying

A lot of hay is made in the Liberal Media Complex about whichever associate of the President happens to be targeted on any given day as … wait for it … guilty of collusion.

In fact, no one will be found guilty of collusion. That is because the word ‘collude’ (defined by Merriam-Webster as: conspire, plot) is one with no specific legal meaning. In the context of political campaigning, ‘collusion’ is not defined as a crime any more than ‘lying’ is.

Which brings up a helpful analogy: lying.

While lying is morally dubious and certainly frowned upon by polite society, it is not, in and of itself, a crime. However, if one lies under specific circumstances, say, while testifying under oath before a federal grand jury, that would constitute perjury and would indeed be a crime.

The same could be said regarding collusion, which is not, in and of itself, a crime. However, if one colludes under certain circumstances, say, in order to destroy a computer hard drive that is under subpoena in a criminal investigation, that would constitute conspiracy to obstruct justice, and would indeed be a crime.

The point being ‘collusion’ is not a crime unless engaged in under specific circumstances that are themselves criminal. Yet, certain political and media drones keep suggesting that someone … anyone! … associated with the Trump administration must be guilty of collusion.

That is both intellectually lazy and politically expedient. And that’s why they do it.

Democrats’ Misguided Strategy

Over the years, Americans have become ever more savvy about advertising. We’ve increased our awareness — a communal gut-sense, if you will — of being plied with slick marketing at the expense of sincerity.

In this regard, Democrats mistakenly think they’re ahead of the curve. If their ‘Russian collusion’ meme plays itself out before the 2018 elections, they won’t help themselves by reaching for another crutch, such as their oft-employed ‘millionaires and billionaires’ routine.

Republicans only care about millionaires and billionaires, they tell us … Seriously?

Are American voters so void of common sense as to swallow that non-dimensional caricature of the Republican party? Some Democrats apparently think so, as evidenced by a recent video clip (to view it, click here), in which Democrat Senator Chris Murphy argues Democrats should drop one shallow argument so they can take up another.

Apparently, Democrats see electoral politics as all about marketing. To an extent, one cannot blame them, considering how the slick marketing of Barack Obama netted them the White House and both houses of Congress in 2008. Barack Obama was an attractive brand, cleverly promoted by the Liberal Media Complex.

Since 2008, however, Democrats have consistently lost ground on the electoral map. If they believe insincere caricature will outperform President Trump’s blunt populism in 2018, they are mistaken.
