      Youme, let me get this straight: local officials are trying to tell us that the gang-fighting (which is a symptom of criminal enterprise) is not related to Muslims (who are members of the most deadly, longest living, most extensive gang related and criminal enterprise ever to exist in history?

      Ummmm, gangs and criminality are not related to gangs and criminality? Sure. Right.

    H.R. 1987 Versus President Trump:
    (The ‘list’ is growing among the legislators to push this through.)
    {H.R. 1987: Oversight Commission On Presidential Capacity Act}
    “- – Primer: Try performing An internet search of any of the names below as an introduction to their own individual scandals. Two congressional committees are assigned to his bill, they are the House Rules Committee and the House Judiciary Sub-Committee on the Constitution and Civil Justice.
    – – The Washington Post is ‘all-in’ on advancing this legislation and is likely aiding the committees with alleged facts, all yet to be proven true or accurate. This is tiresome and impedes the people’s business of that of representatives of the House … continuity o government and the transfer of power means nothing to these people, America suffers. Additionally, these democrats are using taxpayer dollars and legislative time to do this.
    – – Further there is already a lot of chatter inside the Beltway about the 25th Amendment. So, here (link listed below) it is for your use and reference. …”

    Just finished listening to an interview with Charles Ortel
    hosted by Crowdsource the Truth’s Jason Goodman and
    George Webb. The interview just ended around 8:00pm
    at a park in NYC and it was exceptional. (approx. 2 hours)

    All those who follow Charles Ortel know he is a wealth of
    information about the Clinton Foundation and he does not
    disappoint. Highly recommend.

      Our beloved President will have a major victory by the end of this month! Obozocare will be repealed and replaced and everyone will come out of it a winner! Including most importantly the “Forgotten Men and Women” that our Lion promised will not be forgotten anymore!

      This has been in the works for a while but Mitch the Globalist Bitch didn’t want to use it! Our President has smartly aligned himself with Rand Paul, Mike Lee and Ted Cruz. Mitch the Bitch wants a bill that would only help the moderates which would devastate the Forgotten Men and Women. Why? Because it would tear our Lion’s base away from him. By sending out that tweet on Friday, he has castratred that plan because Lee, Paul and Cruz wouldn’t vote for it. As you will see from Lee’s comments below, if they don’t enact what the 3 of them are proposing, you can kiss the repeal and replace goodbye. They will force Mitch and the other 49 morons to send the 2015 repeal bill to our President. That is called CHECKMATE!

      Mitch has two choices in front of him. Go forward with the revised bill which includes leaving the 3.8% tax + the 0.9% tax on the wealthy that earn $250,000 a year in investment funds which would be used to subsidize the folks that have to purchase BarryCare, additional billions for opioids (up from $2.5 billion to $40 billion) and some towards Medicaid sliding scale.

      Senator Mike Lee was on Deface the Nation earlier today. I found a transcript of the interview because I will never watch any of these POS. The only time I view their show is when SD post’s them here on a Sunday.

      The good news is that if the bill is passed, rates will plummet for those not needing the Obozocare policy with all the bells and whistles. The forgotten men and women will not be forgotten!


      From the article linked above:

      MIKE LEE: Look this bill, the one we’ve been discussing in the Senate, has bailouts for insurance companies. It has hundreds of billions of dollars in tax relief for the affluent. It even has some provisions for the poor. Who it leaves out are the forgotten man and the forgotten woman. Those earning a combined household income of $75,000 or so who have been left behind. And these are the people who helped propel President Trump to victory last November. We need to do more to help them and to make sure they can purchase the kind of health care they want and the kind of health care that is affordable for their families.

      MIKE LEE: Well the death spiral is what we see with Obamacare right now and the fact is that by guaranteeing them at least one Obamacare compliant plan, we’re guaranteeing them exactly what they have now but giving them more options. Options that would inevitably unleash free market forces, that would in turn bring down the price of health care. That’s what we want to do. As to those who would be on the Obamacare compliant plan still, there are ways of funding those. There are ways of making sure that those don’t go down into a downward spiral.

      And look if we can’t get this done, I have made clear if we can bring free market forces to bear, we can bring down cost for middle Americans. But if politically, for some reason we can’t get that done what we ought to do is get back to what I’ve been suggesting for the last six months which is to push full repeal and then embark on an iterative step-by-step process to decide what comes next.

      Here is some more great news:

      Folks we are inching closer and closer to this first major legislation passing and benefiting everyone involved! They will be shocked by the score in terms of healthcare costs for non Obozocare customers. They have opened Pandora’s box with no going back!!!


      From the article linked above:

      Senate Republicans are asking the Congressional Budget Office to analyze a healthcare bill that includes changes proposed by Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), Axios reported Saturday.

      They are also asking the independent scorekeeper to come out with an estimate on a healthcare bill without the proposed changes, in an effort to better understand the potential effects of Cruz’s plan.

      And the cherry on the sundae:

      The House Freedom Caucus is putting their full weight behind the Cruz amendment! They are saying that if the Cruz amendment is part of the final bill, the House will go straight to an up and down vote saving a tremendous amount of time! This could be all wrapped up and signed by our President by the end of July!


      From the article linked above:

      “We have to have either the Cruz amendment or the MacArthur amendment, or something that does a similar thing in reducing premiums,” Meadows said.

      In an interview with the Washington Examiner, MacArthur said he accepts the Senate approach, which would significantly loosen Obamacare’s existing state waiver requirements.

      Meadows noted that the Senate bill isn’t likely to change in the House before a vote on final passage.

      “There is 75 percent chance that whatever passes the Senate comes here for an up or down vote,” Meadows said.

        And you really think the moderates will vote for this? They would rather leave Obamacare in place then vote for repeal.


        • fleporeblog says:

          They will! When the CBO comes out with a score that shows the massive difference between the prices for Cruz’s plan versus it not being used, the outcry by the majority of Americans will be the wave that gets it over the top. Remember that 95% of Americans that don’t have employer insurance got screwed by Obamacare. They will see the windfall of the Cruz plan.

    Precious Treepers,
    Never in this world would I profess to be a BakoCarl, so, this song for our “Christmas Everyday in July” is more about affection than perfection. Just call it “The Independence Of July in December” (or something… LOL! – to the tune of “Christmas Song”) Nat King Cole is somewhere sadly shaking his head…

    Snowflakes melting on a twitter meme…
    Fraud news flailing. Failing, too…
    Globalist elites being caught in their lies
    And socialist politicians got the blues – ooooh…

    Everybody knows: those lackeys and their fuming hate
    Are gonna try to poison faith and truth.
    (but) We’ve got God’s man working out God’s great plan!
    He loves to win for us, not lose!

    You know that Donald Trump is working late!
    He pours his heart out just to make America Great!
    And all forgotten folks can be assured –
    that they will never be forgotten, any more.

    And so, I’m offering this simple phrase…
    To all who bleed red, white and blue…
    Although it’s been said, “GIVE GOD THANKS, EVERYDAY…”
    God befriends us! Trump defends us! “Independence! – TOOOOOO YOU!!!!”

    I don’t know how to post a tweet… there’s a photo of FLOTUS on her twitter account with a small child in a wheelchair taken in the Oval Office. Here is link: :https://pbs.twimg.com/media/DDSiRheUIAArbiM.jpg:large
    The point I am trying to convey is that Melania has a photographer’s eye… her dress is exactly the right one for the colors in the space she is in (of course she is a compassionate human being, that’s a given). She appears to always be aware of the colors she is wearing as well as those of her surroundings and the colors of apparel worn by those of POTUS or Barron or the spouse of a visiting dignitary.
    Putting that aside, I would like to draw your attention to an article wrt the White House budget which the ‘media’ has neglected to focus on…
    Trump Cuts White House Budget, Saves American Taxpayer $22 Million
    The savings come from a cut in the amount spent on Michelle Obama’s budget as First Lady, an end to the large number of “czars” and so-called “fellowships” that Obama employed, and a smaller White House workforce, Forbes magazine reported.

    After the White House released its annual budget report last week, Adam Andrzejewski, president of government watchdog group OpenTheBooks.com, compared the newly reported budget to the last two years of the Obama administration.

    Andrzejewski (pronounced And-gee-eff-ski) noted that there are now 110 fewer White House employees since Obama left office, saving nearly $5 million alone. Also, the First Lady’s staff has been cut from 24 staffers to only five. Michelle Obama entered the White House with a staff of 22 costing nearly $2 million annually, up from the $1.4 million spent during the George W. Bush era.

    Another area of savings was the elimination of the so-called policy “czars” with which Obama stocked the White House staff. The Trump budget shows not a single “czar” employed for 2017.

    Trump also seems to have ended Obama’s shady “fellowship” positions, people responsible for such special programs as Michelle Obama’s “Let Girls Learn” initiative and others. Some of these “fellowship” candidates in Obama’s administration made up to $158,000 annually.

    Finally, another big savings was Donald Trump’s promise to forego his $569,000 annual Presidential salary (plus extras and amenities). The budget report does not list the president’s apportioned salary as a line item.

    Note: Another savings is the POTUS’ vacations… Melania has been quoted as saying that most vacations, get-aways will be spent at Trump properties… saving thousands I am sure.

    Trump’s Leaner White House Payroll Projected To Save Taxpayers $22 Million
    Jul 2, 2017

    f the White House payroll is a leading indicator of the president’s commitment to shrink government then voters have a reason to cheer. Projected four-year savings on the White House payroll could top $22 million. Savings come from President Trump’s refusal to take a salary as well as big reductions in other areas including the absence of czars, expensive “fellowships,” and spending on FLOTUS staff.

    On Friday, the Trump administration released their annual report to Congress on White House Office Personnel. It includes the name, status, salary and position title of all 377 White House employees. (Search the recent Trump administration payroll data – and last two-years of the Obama administration – posted at OpenTheBooks.com.)

    Here are some key findings……

    I am trolling libs on Facebook. They trashed Sarah Sanders. I said I always applaud a strong woman. Then they say she lies. I ask for specific lies. They have none, so resort to saying I’m stupid. I tell them I have a doctorate. Then they say I’m brainwashed. I say, well, probably we all are if we self select media that supports our beliefs and aren’t open to different opinions. So then they say people who read Breitbart and watch Fox are haters. And I say I don’t read Breitbart it’s too sensationalized for me, and Fox, like all TV media, cares only about ratings so I don’t watch it. Oh, and they said I can’t be a follower of Jesus and support Trump and I pointed out the gospel tells us to respect and support and pray for our leaders. Man, they are ugly and hateful. I’m praying for salvation for each of them. It’s a miserable thing to not have Christ and to make politics your religion.
