    The newsies are a lot more respectful now in the press room during the conferences.

    It took a pitt bull to straighten them out.

    Or maybe it was the super soaker water gun or hitting them over the head with the podium.

      It’s a difference of night to day, isn’t it?

      Refreshing.

      And, of course, helps the public actually understand what’s going on, which is *supposed* to be their job.

      Also,now you can tell which reporters are terminally stupid, because they are the only ones still asking worthless, throw-away questions.

        And they are just idiots. The life without immigrants protest was meant to highlight that we don’t realize who in our lives are immigrants.

        That was dumb enough, but to continue on that vein as if we don’t know who we encounter and work with are women just shows they didn’t even get the point of the first pointless protest,

    What good is Obamacare health insurance when the deductibles are so high? For example:

    “Our deductible is so high, we practically pay for all of our medical expenses out of pocket,” said Wendy Kaplan, 50, of Evanston, Ill. “So our policy is really there for emergencies only, and basic wellness appointments.”

    Her family of four pays premiums of $1,200 a month for coverage with an annual deductible of $12,700.

      Since half of all Americans do not have enough cash to write a $500 check, a $12,700 deductible is really a $400 deductible with the balance, $12,300 added to the yearly cost. $12,300 per year is $1025 additional cost per month, So the effective premium would be $1200 plus $1025 = $2225 per month

      $1200/mo, $12,700 deductible policy hits half of all Americans like a
      $2225/mo, $400 deductible policy

      If the family above was allowed to purchase a high deductible catastrophic policy for $400/mo with $12,700 Deductible, they could put the remaining $625/month currently going into premiums for a policy they cannot use, into a tax exempt HSA.

      If they are in a 20% tax bracket, they would get a monthly tax break of $125. That tax break combined with the HSA is $625 plus $125 = $750/month. In one year the family has $750 x 12 = $9000 per year to pay towards their $12,700 deductible

      If the family has a good year, when they don’t have $9000 in medical costs, the part they didn’t spend out of their HSA would accrue. That happened to me. Best policy I ever had

      If the family has a bad year, they would have to fork out $12,700 – 9,000 = $3,700

      Beats the $12,700 they would have to fork up with their original Obamacare policy. I found hospitals make payment plans. I would support tax breaks, credits or government underwritten loans on the difference

      Keep in mind that one of the main tactics of the Left has been to relentlessly smear the Right with imaginary accusations of having done what the Left has actually done.

      “Projection”.

      If the Left has done it, they inoculate themselves in the ‘court of public opinion’ by accusing the Right of their own conduct. All too often, the gullible public laps it up like fresh milk.

      Hey Sundance … thanks for your national coverage of career politicians and the excellent analysis of current events with your knowledge of their corruption and under-handed methods. That said …

      You speak of and make it a ‘theme’ within your articles of “trillions of dollars at stake”.
      My concern is why do you limit the theme? While you have shown and articulated on the McCain/Clinton/Obama, etc. and their cohorts in the Middle East and elsewhere… why haven’t you done an expose of the real trillions of tax-payer funds and illicit gains of drug running, money laundering and weapons sales / procurement within the international ‘deep state’ that the CIA / Pentagon have their fingerprints all over. This is where the real “trillions at stake” lay and President Trump is vehemently against drug and human trafficking, along with trillions being spent on ‘regime changes’.

      Seems to me, that you have the contacts, information and inquisitive mind to do a very informative article and show where “trillions of dollars are at stake” and how these funds are moved and the corruption it takes within our Congress and Wall Street banking conglomerates to keep this under-wraps and unexposed by the swamp creatures.

      His face is not in the news. You would think he was a covert officer undercover.

      He was appointed to Direct and reform.

      Biggest scandal since the 70’s (in fact bigger in overall loss of Freedoms of Americans) and now Director of CI.

      And they had weeks to get ready. WikiLeaks gave a heads up long ago.

      Pompeo. The face and voice of CI and no one has seen or heard from him.

      Think about this: the CIA can insert “Russian” Intel captured by the US, which really originated from US in disguise as Russian. And then go “brief” the POTUS about what the Russians are “planning or doing”.

      Ramifications: justification for military or severe covert action. All based on contrived lies from Langley.

        I expect the WH is being very careful considering what happened to JFK.

    Avid reader but first time commenter here…I watched the entirety of Spicer’ spread conference today and something really stood out. At the very end, Sean went back to an early questions about Trump’s Saturday tweet about wiretapping and specifically stated the WH is not asserting there was any investigation into Trump formally during the campaign, while at the same time reaffirming that the WH is not retracting Trump’s allegations that Obama wire tapped (or surveyed, etc.). To me, this upped the crave in a big way, by declaring that not only did it happen but BHO pushed it through in such a way that it didnt even have the auspices of being legitimate. This is not a surprising accusation to many readers here, but I thought it could be a serious upcharge in the eyes of the MSM. Especially since even Fox ( I know, same stripes different colors) is fixiated on the FISS warrants to corroborate Trumps claim.

    I have seen anything suggesting anyone else that anyone else has read as much into this as I have. But I have notice Trumo usually starts a battle with a more subtle hint about his next move. I would love to hear everyone’s thought in this.
