      Seated, hands folded, left front:

      Cpl. Rosser, distinguished himself by conspicuous gallantry above and beyond the call of duty. While assaulting heavily fortified enemy hill positions, Company L, 38th Infantry Regiment, was stopped by fierce automatic-weapons, small-arms, artillery, and mortar fire. Cpl. Rosser, a forward observer, was with the lead platoon of Company L when it came under fire from 2 directions. Cpl. Rosser turned his radio over to his assistant and, disregarding the enemy fire, charged the enemy positions armed with only carbine and a grenade. At the first bunker, he silenced its occupants with a burst from his weapon. Gaining the top of the hill, he killed 2 enemy soldiers, and then went down the trench, killing 5 more as he advanced. He then hurled his grenade into a bunker and shot 2 other soldiers as they emerged. Having exhausted his ammunition, he returned through the enemy fire to obtain more ammunition and grenades and charged the hill once more. Calling on others to follow him, he assaulted 2 more enemy bunkers. Although those who attempted to join him became casualties, Cpl. Rosser once again exhausted his ammunition, obtained a new supply, and returning to the hilltop a third time hurled grenades into the enemy positions. During this heroic action Cpl. Rosser single-handedly killed at least 13 of the enemy. After exhausting his ammunition he accompanied the withdrawing platoon, and though himself wounded, made several trips across open terrain still under enemy fire to help remove other men injured more seriously than himself. This outstanding soldier’s courageous and selfless devotion to duty is worthy of emulation by all men. He has contributed magnificently to the high traditions of the military service.[2]

    Judicial Watch has requested the Trump Administration to clean the swamp that is the student loan scandal:

    JW Sues over Obama Student Loan Scandal

    President Obama wasn’t content to take over the health care and finance industries – his administration and his allies in Congress also nationalized the student loan industry. And sure enough, big government corruption followed.

    To get the truth about this potentially expensive scandal for taxpayers, your JW sued the U.S. Department of Education seeking records relating to then-Obama administration’s “coding error” that resulted in masking that most borrowers are failing to pay down their federally-subsidized student loans (Judicial Watch v. U.S. Department of Education (No. 1:17-cv-00501)).

    The Obama administration’s Obamacare legislation also included provisions that resulted in the federal takeover of the student loan industry, which radically increased taxpayer subsidies of higher education loans.

    The Obama Education Department acknowledged in early January that the coding error resulted in wildly inaccurate College Scorecard repayment rates. The significance is substantial, according to The Wall Street Journal:

    The department played down the mistake, but the new average three-year repayment rate has declined by 20 percentage points to 46%. This is huge. It means that fewer than half of undergraduate borrowers at the average college are paying down their debt.


    Last month the Government Accountability Office (GAO) projected that loan forgiveness for borrowers enrolled in the plans could cost upward of $108 billion. GAO rapped the department for underestimating the costs due to “insufficient quality controls” and “unreasonable assumptions.” It’s possible the putative “coding error” is connected to this ill-management.

    As the Journal notes, “The other scandal is that the Obama Administration used the inflated Scorecard repayment data as a pretext to single out for-profit colleges for punitive regulation.”

    We filed our lawsuit after the department failed to respond to a January 29, 2017, FOIA request for:
    Any records concerning the coding error in the calculation of repayment rate data contained in the College Scorecard, as disclosed on January 13, 2017. . . . Requested records include, but are not limited to, records identifying causes of the coding error and steps taken to correct the error, communications within [the Education Department] regarding the error, communications with third parties concerning the error, and records relating to the public announcement of the error.

    The government-run student loan racket is a disaster for taxpayers and has been abused to target for-profit competitors of liberal-controlled “public” universities.

    The Trump administration should quickly respond to our FOIA lawsuit about this scandal. The Trump administration has an opportunity to drain the swamp in higher education by exposing the truth about their expensive taxpayer subsidies.

    The biggest personalities on the left are all on the legacy media which is quickly being discredited and labeled as “fake news”. The biggest personalities on the right are all on social media, especially on YouTube. The left has tried to censor the right on every platform. They started with Twitter and Facebook, and now they are moving on to YouTube. Paul Joseph Watson’s latest video exposes the left’s power grab and efforts at silencing opposition.

    Several Treepers have asked why haven’t we heard anything about the Trump administration dealing with voter fraud. Now, there is some news.

    In this Washington Times article, there is a quote from Time’s recent interview with President Trump on this issue:

    “When I say that, I mean mostly they register wrong. In other words, for the votes, they register incorrectly, and/or illegally. I’m forming a committee on it.”

    A committee? Hmmm…

    Will President Trump let the weekend news cycle focus on the failure of the AHCA or will something new come up?

    Hi everyone!

    If I have ever posted here, it was years ago. Have been a lurker probably from the beginning or near to it, but only since Trump came onto the political scene and the world collectively lost its mind have I made this my first and primary surf. In the past I’ve posted and home-surfed The Doug Ross Journal, Protein Wisdom, Flopping Aces, and Rightwing Nuthouse. (Yes. I realize two of those bloggers went insane, one went full rino establishment, and one went Cruz-ing. That’s how I got here!)

    If this posts, I will probably head over to the failed Ryan-o-Care comments. I believe that most people have missed that Meadows and Trump have worked this hand in hand to make good on a campaign promise to repeal Obamacare, nail Obamacare to Schumer and Pelosi, prove Ryano is a failed leader, force the Democrats to eventually negotiate, and pull the never-Trumpers in under Meadows for use at a future date.

    Very astute plan.
