put the blame for the plane downing mostly on Trump. He didn't launch the missiles, but he got the ball rolling.

Paul Krugman - How progressives won the health care argument

On Monday Donald Trump came out with another big lie, claiming to be “the person who saved pre-existing conditions.” And progressives should celebrate.

I mean, it’s not a good thing that we have a president who lies about everything, all the time. And as I wrote in today’s column, he and his party are still trying to destroy Obamacare, and will probably succeed if he’s re-elected.

But notice the nature of this lie. Although Trump is actually the enemy of Americans with pre-existing conditions, he feels the need to pretend that he’s their friend. What that means is that progressives, who insisted that nobody should be denied affordable coverage because of their medical history, have won the argument.

Now, you can win an argument and still be defeated by a combination of dishonesty and brute force, and that’s a real possibility for health care. But things have definitely changed.

Back when the A.C.A. was being debated, the right denounced the entire idea of getting the government involved in regulating and subsidizing private insurance. They did so even though the principal form of private insurance we have, employer-based coverage, is heavily subsidized through the tax code — employer-paid premiums aren’t taxable income — and heavily regulated, because to get that tax-free status employers have to obey rules, including not discriminating against employees with pre-existing conditions.

And these subsidies and rules are why employer-based coverage works, to the extent it does. But conservatives claimed that terrible things would happen if you tried to extend comparable subsidies and regulation to Americans with less generous employers.

As it turned out, however, none of those terrible things happened. Remember how Obamacare was supposed to be a huge job destroyer? In 2011 the Republican House passed a bill titled “Repealing the job-killing health care law act.” Well, here we are with the A.C.A. still in place and 3.5 percent unemployment.

And remember how it was going to explode the deficit? Actually, the parts of federal spending affected by the A.C.A. rose only around 0.7 percent of G.D.P., around 40 percent of the revenue loss from the 2017 tax cut.

And, of course, around 20 million people gained health coverage. For many with pre-existing conditions, health reform was literally a lifesaver.

Now, Obamacare didn’t take us all the way to universal coverage. And some progressives trash the act. Cenk Uygur, a media personality now running for Congress (briefly endorsed by Bernie Sanders), recently declared that “Nancy Pelosi took bribes from insurance companies and 45,000 people died” — because, he apparently believes, she could have passed Medicare for All in 2010 if she wanted to.

The reality, as anyone who followed the events in real time knows, was that Obamacare was the most that could have been achieved in that political environment. In fact, it barely made it through. The point, however, is that the law’s success — and it has been a success, even if both the right and some on the left refuse to admit it — has itself changed the political environment, to the point where even Donald Trump feels the need to lie and pretend that he supports the Affordable Care Act’s key provisions.

I still don’t think Democrats can get to Medicare for All in the next few years, but if they win they’re in a good position to improve substantially on Obamacare — because, as I said, they have decisively won the argument.

In just a few hours, the Speaker Of The House will deliver the Articles Of Impeachment to the Senate.

I believe the House Of Representatives will soon find themselves with egg on their face for bringing such an extremely weak case......a case that will fail to meet the elementary standards of our Constitution!

It will soon be very clear to everyone that the only reason the Democrats have pursued such an embarrassing charade is because they know they have NO ONE that can defeat President Donald Trump in November 2020.

The Chief Justice can rule on the Amendment’s and the Senate can accept or overrule his decision......or the Chief Justice can defer to the Senate: (look for Chief Roberts to defer)

For those who don’t know, Senators MUST:

be present
seated and quiet
electronic devices left outside chamber
submit questions in writing

During the hearings, NO GRANDSTANDING and NO Spartacus like moments for the cameras!!!

The Madam Speaker has painted herself into a corner and unlike Dorthy, Nancy can’t click her heels together and find her way back home!

Liberty University’s (Falwell) mission statement:

"Bemoaning the rise of leftism is no longer enough, and turning the other cheek in our personal relationships with our neighbors as Jesus taught while abdicating our responsibilities on the cultural battlefield is no longer sufficient. There is too much at stake in the battle for the soul of our nation. Bold, unapologetic action and initiative is needed, which is why we just launched the Falkirk Center, a think tank dedicated to restoring and defending American ideals and Judeo-Christian values in all aspects of life."

Democratic Senator Chris Van Hollen of Maryland requested the GAO take a look, and now that the finding is out,

"Faithful execution of the law does not permit the President to substitute his own policy priorities for those that Congress has enacted into law," a GAO opinion said. "OMB withheld funds for a policy reason, which is not permitted under the Impoundment Control Act (ICA). The withholding was not a programmatic delay. Therefore, we conclude that OMB violated the ICA."

Trump hired a pedophile to be his attorney (Dershowitz) as well as a man who did not give a shit about Baylor athletes raping countless women (Barr, the same asshole who prosecuted Pres. Clinton for getting his dick wet in the oval office)

MoscoMitch then:

"I'm not an impartial juror. This is a political process. There's not anything judicial about it. The House made a partisan political decision to impeach. I would anticipate we will have a largely partisan outcome in the Senate. I'm not impartial about this at all."

MoscoMitch now:

"I solemnly swear that in all things appertaining to the trial of Donald John Trump, now pending, I will do impartial justice according to the Constitution and laws, so help me God."

The Democrats latest gasp at winning the 2016 election starts in earnest tomorrow. The DEMS could have named as many House managers as they needed, but I believe SEVEN is all that wanted to take part in this fiasco circus based on how weak the Articles appear......let’s look at 4 of the 7


Shifty Schiff:

lied about his personal contact and his staffs contact with whistleblower.

fabricated his own made up narrative and read it into the Congressional record.

wouldn’t play well with Republicans by cutting them off when attempting to ask tough questions / take part in the process.

keeps attempting to add new evidence AFTER voting on the Articles Of Impeachment.



Jerry Nadler:

when running for House Judiciary Chair, Nadler claimed; “he would be the best route for Impeachment.”


Zoe Lofgren: worked on / participated in the Nixon Impeachment.

Sylvia Garcia: former Judge from Houston.

Lofgren and Garcia each formally voted for Impeachment of President Donald Trump back in July 2019.


You see, it’s been Dem-DEm-DEMS who have huffed and puffed up the Articles. Now the Presidential defense team will make presentations, defenses and answer accusations......veteran courtroom litigators who will shred apart the Articles by repudiating and discrediting the unconstitutional charges.

Example: the President can not commit High Crimes and Misdemeanors in a situation where the President has legitimate constitutional power!

The DEMS are saying that President Donald Trump used his constitutional powers for a corrupt purpose without offering any evidence!


I can’t wait to see how Chief Justice John Roberts handles the DEMS narrative of, “but we know what he was thinking.”

Last but not least: Obstruction of Congress.

I’m guessing the DEMS chose this because it “sounds official,” and will possibly confuse those who are easily duped?

Obstruction of Justice is a felony and high crime, it was one of the Counts in which Bill Clinton was Impeached......a true crime!

But NOT Obstruction of Congress, it’s nothingness!!!

The DEMS are saying that the President claiming privilege = Obstruction of Congress......what a freaking joke and such a waste of time!

Sure wish I could find a Vegas sportsbook who is offering a wager of -never mind- as the DEMS response before presenting Article 2......because it just might happen!

For reasons unknown, a local artist has put a giant sculpture of Trump's head on display in the city centre here. https://www.thecourier.com.au/story/...d-in-ballarat/

Just saw on the TV news that they've had to clean away chalk graffiti on the pavement saying "FUCK TRUMP", "WOMEN'S LIVES MATTER" and "REASONS TO RIOT 2020". Good on my town.
