    The transcript from today’s White House Press Briefing is out – and for those of you that didn’t watch it – Spicer KILLED it, amazing job…my fave

    Original Question “Why does the White House believe it was appropriate for Chairman Nunes to come and give this information to the President regarding an investigation about the President’s own associates during the campaign?”

    Spicer: “And at some point, I would implore, urge, beg some of you to use some of your investigative skills to look into what actually did happen, why did it happen, what was going on back there, who knew what when. But I think that there should be a similar concern, as opposed to figuring out whether he took a skateboard or a car here to exactly what happened and why it happened. And the reality is, is that whether he briefed us first or he briefed the Democratic members — and that’s up to him to decide — the substance of what he shared should be troubling to everybody. And that’s what I think is the important thing”

    To put in context he had already been asked multiple questions regarding this topic – the most ridiculious one:

    Q Following up on Jordan’s question and then I have a follow-up on Hallie’s question. How did Chairman Nunes end up at the White House yesterday? This morning he said he invited himself here, but that’s sort of an uncommon way to end up here. Can you take us through sort of the tick-tock of what happened?

    MR. SPICER: No. I don’t know how he got here. I assume in a car. (Laughter.) But I also don’t track him. I don’t keep his schedule either.

          It didn’t take them 60 years in the first place. It took them 20 years, at most the put the first piece in place (tax favored treatment due to very high marginal rates coupled with large numbers of brackets, due to surtaxes). It took them 20 more years, at most, for them to put in the second and third pieces (1965) Medicare and Medicaid. It took them another 18 years, at most, to put in the fourth piece (1981/2) DRGs. It took them just 5 or so years to get the next piece (1987) EMTALA. They tried again in 1993 but failed. Unfortunately, Newt and the boys helped, indirectly to put in the next piece (1997) HIPAA. One of the handful of good things, I think, that GW Bush did try to do was a partly successful opening of Medicare to market forces, Medicare Advantage, but it was too little and too late. The most recent piece, 13 years after the last one, No-care, had to be rammed through over nearly everyone’s objections. We are tinkering with the last one and only on the margins, sadly.

              Yes. How does a totalitarian get a public used to individual freedom, give up that freedom? Not by openly attacking it. 1. Gas-light them directly and indirectly (government owned and operated schools started in the 1840s. 2. Adopt ‘alien’ concepts that cause cognitive dissonance (liberty for me but not for thee, begun in the 1820s but picked up steam as ‘continental’ philosophies and perverted economic premises that held ‘intellectual’ appeal, get widely spread and adopted. 3. Introduce ‘yellow journalism’ while pretending to be objective. Begun shortly after the end of that nasty war. 4. Adopt ‘educational’ innovations that invert thousands of years of practical pedagogy. 5. Nationalize businesses by threat. 6. Nationalize banks. 7. Income taxes. then finally, 8 government owned, if not necessarily operated, medical care. 9. You know going openly after successful farmers will backfire, so you use other means to nationalize them. 10. When your project can’t pass open political muster, co-opt or corrupt the political system.

                  Yes yes…competition is the only way to get premiums down.

                  Might run into a problem with States Rights, though.

                  States claim they have the right to “approve” whatever Health Insurance providers are ‘allowed’ to write policies in their states.
                  Which is absurd, imo.

                  They may have to be shamed into seeing reason on it.

                  I am all for States Rights.
                  But in this case…I think that ‘citizens rights’ should trump a state curtailing free enterprise and competition.

                    Each State has it’s own insurance commission, so it would cause problems as far as chain of command. But I have developed this kind of faith in Trump that when he says he’s going to do something, it’s going to get done. How he turned the Russian conspiracy around so the focus is now on Obama’s wiretapping enters the realm of 64D chess.

                I had a hole in my pocket and my wallet must have fallen out. So I lost my wallet. Ack. I already canceled and reordered my debit/credit cards. Have to spend about half a day and maybe 50.00 to get everything replaced tomorrow. Huge pain. New Drivers liscense, New Library card, New Permit to carry card. etc etc etc. Tomorrow is going to be a pain in the ass.

                Wonder if I should file a police report in case someone has found it and is using my identity. don’t know. Pro-Tip: don’t lose your wallet it’s a pain to replace.

      The “T” word is everywhere today. I can’t get away from it.

      MSN is pushing hard the NYT story about Manafort titled “There’s a Smell of Treason in the Air.” It even has a good laugh-out-loud line: “Paul Manafort, who practically bleeds borscht….”

      It’s loaded with hyperbole calling the Manafort-Russian problem more scandalous than Burr shooting Hamilton.

      I think we’re reaching a new level of unhinged.

            I made this comment the other night. The entire left looks like it’s had a psychotic breakdown. Hillary losing and Trump winning broke their collective minds.

            In short:: they’ve been broken. Not killed but broken. When this whole MUH RUSSIA/IMPEACH TRUMP backfires, and I am confident it will, it might end up destroying them to the point they can never recover.

            That’s the best theory I have at this time.

    I am tired of the Islam – left assault on life, the constant effort to make life ugly, odious, contentious, and dangerous, dangerous to limb crippling and to life. These @#$% demons continual assault is protected by ‘rules’ of civilization, while all rules are broken by them from their claim of safe space lairs.

    This is the nature of the failure of our strategy. Our speech is assaulted, theirs is protected. They physically assault by their gang rule, they are protected by law and reams of lawyers, by soulless crooked politicians.

    Their weakness is that their enterprise is financed, well financed, excessively financed. They have essential back room closet moneymen. Bankrollers.

    Mohammed’s terrorism is financed by oil money, and we know where the oil flows from and the banks that warehouse the money. The left’s money is old money and newbie high tech money, such as Google, Facebook, Apple, etc.

    Now, let me point out the obvious. Bomb threat hoax calls on Jewish centers by a young jew were uncovered recently. How? Not magic. Every phone call, meta data and actual phone message is recorded. Every internet transmission is recorded. Even candidate Trump was surveilled to the extent that makes Watergate shrink.

    So, there is no reason to not completely understand the who, what , where, why of this assault money. None.

    The root source needs to be outed, dug out, stamped out. Rules of Western Civilization have already been usurped by the demons. Use their rules on them, all of their tactics. Reverse it. It won’t take long before the money monsters that finance the war on life will shrink like the bloody, soulless, cowards they are.

    Go after the money men all of them. Go after Mohammed’s sons and daughters with muslim invasion and terror funding money.

    Time to throw off Mohammed’s muslim’s Dhimmi iron collar. Take the nose ring off. Grow a backbone.
