Obamacare And The Limits Of GOP Establishment “Show Vote” Government

We’ve now seen the reality of Ryan – Boehner “show vote” government and it looks an awful lot like government by a less intelligent and less articulate version of the Democrats.

Governors Go To Pot

The governors of  Colorado, Washington, Oregon, and Alaska want President Trump, Attorney General Jeff Sessions and Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin to continue Obama's backdoor legalization of marijuana at the federal level, rather than pursue a straightforward decriminalization passed by Congress.

Susan Rice’s White House Unmasking: A Watergate-style Scandal

Andrew C. McCarthy, National Review

The national-security adviser is not an investigator. She is a White House staffer. The president’s staff is a consumer of intelligence, not a generator or collector of it. If Susan Rice was unmasking Americans, it was not to fulfill an intelligence need based on American interests; it was to fulfill a political desire based on Democratic-party interests.

The Russiagate Scam Will Blow Up In The Democrats’ Smug Faces

Kurt Schlichter, Townhall

The end results are going to be a stronger Trump, weaker Democrats, and various Obama minions exploring new career opportunities in the exciting fields of license plate-making, large-to-small rock transformation, and artisanal pruno distilling.

Dubya Disappoints — Big Time

Judah Friedman, The American Spectator

From where do you get the nerve to speak up now? Why not speak up when you were being attacked and blamed for everything that ails mankind for the past 16 years? Donald Trump said you lied, they said you were Hitler. Why so defensive now? Is it because you did lie? You think the inauguration “was some weird s…”? Well, how about your presidency? That former president “was some weird s….” You think with that “innocent” mind that if President Trump is worse than you, the left will forget about you? Is it some weird sense of relief you are experiencing?

Priebus And Ryan Hijack Trump’s Twitter Account

It’s time for the President to change the password on his Twitter account and focus his efforts on fulfilling his promise to pass a bill that will actually do what Ryancare never will – lower premiums for the forgotten Americans the Freedom Caucus represents.

Top Democrat Finally Commits The Truth About Trump Surveillance

This is a big deal for a lot of reasons, but the one that no one seems to be talking about is how did someone who was outside of government, and who was advising Hillary Clinton, have access to secret intelligence long after she left her official duties?

Trump Rolls Back Another Obama Job Killer

President Trump's action ordering the Attorney General to settle the lawsuits pending over Obama's Clean Energy plan opens the possibility that the Attorney General could enter consent agreements with the states, trade associations, rural electric co-ops and labor unions that would put his pro-growth energy policies into a legal framework that would be difficult if not impossible for a future president or Congress to unwind.

The Russian Farce

Victor Davis Hanson, National Review

From Russia’s point of view, considering their strategic and economic interests, a pliable Obama 2.0 would have been far better than Trump, with his pro-oil-and-gas domestic agenda, his promised defense buildup, and his unpredictable Jacksonian promises to help friends and hurt enemies.

The agony of finding a place for the spare Mercedes

Wesley Pruden, Washington Times

The most serious business in Washington is not what to do about Obamacare, a tax cut, the nut case in North Korea, or even how the election of Donald Trump has so polarized America that no friendship, relationship or marriage is safe. Washington worries about how to find a parking place in Obama's neighborhood.

Sean Spicer Comments Show Priebus Is In Trouble

The change in tone in Sean Spicer's White House press briefing is a very important piece of trail craft that tells us Priebus’ influence is waning and that the Ryancare disaster has shown just how out of his depth the White House Chief of Staff is, given that his primary qualification for the job was his long home state relationship with Speaker Paul Ryan.

An Obama Plot Against Trump?

Patrick J. Buchanan, The American Conservative

So far, the Russia-connection investigation has proven a dry hole. But an investigation into who in the FBI, CIA, or NSA is unmasking U.S. citizens and criminally leaking information to a Trump-hating press to destroy a president they are sworn to serve could prove to be a gusher. What did Barack Obama know, and when did he know it?

Midnight Rules Meeting Sets The Stage For Friday Obamacare Vote

Conservatives are getting next to nothing in the #Ryancare bill. It’s time for conservatives and for President Trump to take his own deal making advice and walk away from this disaster – there are better deals available and the price of giving illegal aliens taxpayer subsidized health care is way too high. We urge CHQ readers to contact House Freedom Caucus members to urge them to stand tall against bullying from establishment Republican Speaker Paul Ryan.

Time to Investigate Obama, not Just Trump

Roger L. Simon, PJ Media

Any legitimate investigation by a congressional committee or anyone else must encompass both Obama and Trump.  This is a two-part story.  If both parties are not investigated -- they cannot be separated -- this is no more than a partisan show.  Further, the press cannot even faintly be trusted to investigate or adjudicate this matter.  Their bias is so overwhelming it would sink the Titanic twice.

On #Ryancare Paul Ryan = Harry Reid

The House votes today on #Ryancare. In his desperation to maintain federal government control of the health insurance and health care markets establishment Republican Speaker Paul Ryan is turning more and more to the ugly corruption of the Democrats’ former Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid. We urge CHQ readers to contact their Representative to demand they vote NO on this corrupt disaster.

The Deal Breaker In #Ryancare

Much as we’d like President Trump to succeed, providing subsidized health care to illegal aliens is too steep a price for conservatives to pay to support the President in his optimistic push to use Speaker Paul Ryan’s disastrous Obamacare 2.0, Rinocare or #Ryancare bill to repeal and replace Obamacare.

Rand Paul and Ted Cruz are Right About #RyanCare

The only parts of Obamacare establishment Republicans want to repeal are the parts in the current House bill, they are perfectly happy to keep the regulations and other Big Government parts of Obamacare and have no intention of establishing a free market health care and health care insurance system.

Yes, Obama Did Investigate Trump

George Neumayr, The American Spectator

If the Republicans had a real counterpart to Schiff, they would have loudly pointed out that Comey’s mere confirmation of an investigation vindicates the thrust of Trump’s tweets. They could have spent the hearing drawing out the implications of that admission. No matter how the Dems and the media spin it, no matter how many semantic games they play, Obama authorized a multi-agency investigation into a political opponent, which necessarily involved violations of that opponent’s privacy.
