    The liberal network shows were all busy Sunday morning pushing accusations and speculation about President Trump and his adviser Jared Kushner. Their discussion was drive by more anonymous sources telling The Washington Post that Kushner tried to set up a backchannel discussion between Trump and the Russians to talk about Syria. CNN even accused the action of being “treasonous.” The hysteria was also present on NBC’s Meet the Press, but theirs was shattered by The Wall Street Journal’s Kimberley Strassel after she introduced facts to the discussion. “I think we are having a discussion that is absolutely divorced from reality...

    I voted for Donald Trump and I support him 100%. I wanted him to kill Obamacare and I knew he would have to move feckless spineless Republicans who made 60 – count them 60 SHOW BUSINESS votes to repeal Obamacare when it didn’t count. Now when it can count lies are oozing out of their teeth. What has the Freedom Caucus ever done for us? A thorough search of available mentions of the Freedom Caucus unsurprisingly reveals that it has done nothing for us. Sad failures that they are, they crow about getting other “conservatives” elected and try to pass...
  • The Ryancare Route -- Winning by Losing?

    Did the Freedom Caucus just pull the Republican Party back off the ledge, before it jumped to its death? A case can be made for that. Before the American Health Care Act, aka "Ryancare," was pulled off the House floor Friday, it enjoyed the support -- of 17 percent of Americans. Had it passed, it faced an Antietam in the GOP Senate, and probable defeat. Had it survived there, to be signed by President Trump, it would have meant 14 million Americans losing their health insurance in 2018. First among the losers would have been white working-class folks who delivered...
  • The Damage the Freedom Caucus Has Done May Be Felt for Years

    It is hard to overestimate the damage the Freedom Caucus has done to the fledgling presidency of Donald Trump, and to the country. By blocking the American Health Care Act of 2017, the conservative group has guaranteed that Americans will struggle forward under the burden of Obamacare. In the next few months insurers will announce their premium hikes for the coming year; chances are, given the continuing withdrawal of major companies from the marketplaces and the ongoing failure of the bill to attract enough young and healthy participants, the new rates will not be pretty. Last year premiums went up...
  • Disgusting: The Freedom Caucus Saves Obamacare Again

    AHCA was pulled from the floor yet again this afternoon, and it now is probable that Obamacare will be the law of the land for years to come. This is an utter disaster for U.S. health care, not to mention individual liberty, and the responsibility rests squarely on shoulders of a small cadre of political opportunists with the effrontery to call themselves the “House Freedom Caucus.” These people held out for the impossible — full repeal of Obamacare in one fell swoop — and have thus destroyed the only realistic opportunity their party will have in the near future to...

    The same people who just voted no on Paul Ryan's bill because it wasn't "conservative" enough, are the same people who voted to make Paul Ryan speaker of the House. Why? Was Ryan more conservative back then, then he is today? Did Ryan promise them something, in order to get their vote. Or is the FC just a bunch of hypocrites. I think honest people know the answer.

    The Senate has scheduled confirmation hearings for President Trump’s nominee, Neil Gorsuch, to fill the vacancy on the U.S. Supreme Court to begin on Monday — almost exactly a year after President Obama nominated Merrick Garland for the same post. What difference a year makes. President Obama held a Rose Garden press conference on the morning of March 16, 2016, to announce his choice of Garland, the centrist chief judge of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit. Two out of three voters (65 percent) told Pew Research Center last summer that Supreme Court appointments were “very important”...

    Republican Senator John McCain broke with the reassuring message that U.S. officials visiting Germany have sought to convey on their debut trip to Europe, saying on Friday that the administration of President Donald Trump was in "disarray". McCain, a known Trump critic, told the Munich Security Conference that the resignation of the new president's security adviser Michael Flynn over his contacts with Russia reflected deep problems in Washington.

    Following a truly remarkable press conference by President Donald Trump, CNN’s Jake Tapper weighed in on what we had all witnessed. And he didn’t pull any punches. “Everybody at home needs to ask themselves how would you react if that were your boss coming in and giving a speech to the employees,” Tapper noted. “How would you react if that was somebody in your family that you were trying to have a conversation with? You would think this is very difficult to assess in a positive way.” He continued, “The person is not dealing with the world in which we...

    Local community members are reacting to a video circulating social media depicting possible Saint John's University students chanting, "Build that wall" on a bus. It's only a six-second video, but with more than 30,000 views it's caught the attention of nearly everyone on the campuses of St. John's University and the College of St. Benedict Rallies held Tuesday afternoon turned the discussion toward diversity, asking others to build bridges, rather than walls. Organizer Gladys Gutierrez said the rally was already being put together when the video surfaced. "The situation we are in, the political climate that we are in right...

    Statement of AFT President Randi Weingarten on the confirmation of Betsy DeVos as secretary of education. “DeVos’ confirmation battle has a major silver lining: The public in public education has never been more visible or more vocal, and it is not going back in the shadows. This same public—from rural towns to urban centers, from liberals to conservatives—will now serve as a check and balance, and they will be fierce fighters on behalf of children. I am honored to be a soldier in that movement for children. “It’s telling that even when Trump had full control of the legislative and...

    Video at link. (CNSNews.com) - President Donald Trump spent his first days in office using his authority to "attack women’s health" and "ignore basic campaign promises," according to Democratic Caucus Chair, Rep. Joe Crowley (D-N.Y.). "President Trump spent his first days in office obsessing over trivial nonsense and wielding the power of the presidency to attack women’s health, ignore basic campaign promises – that’s not an encouraging sign for any of us over the next four years," Crowley said at a press conference Tuesday. "And it’s not just President Trump. Congressional Republicans and their leadership are also focusing this week...

    “Who wore it better: Kellyanne Conway or Paddington Bear?” one Twitter user writes about Conway’s red, white and blue inauguration style The inauguration of a new president is certainly supposed to be a patriotic day, however Donald Trump’s White House counselor Kellyanne Conway took the theme to the extreme with her red, white and blue outfit Friday. On such a serious day when the swearing in of the new POTUS sparked protests and riots across the country, Conway’s far-out fashion, at least, provided a source of light entertainment on social media. While her Gucci A-line wool coat with cat-head buttons...

    I spent a good chunk of the holiday break in a cabin with a spectacular view of a bay just off the Pacific Ocean outside the tiny town of Inverness north of San Francisco. It reminds me of the view from the cabin I grew up with in the American heartland, outside the Twin Cities in Minnesota. Looking out over the natural beauty of this amazing country of ours helped me think through the tumultuous past year with a big-picture, more timeless perspective. It helped me get clear about what lies ahead. The Brexit vote in England and then the...

    Spread rumors about Russian vote rigging, push protests Hillary Clinton’s campaign operatives have fueled efforts to delegitimize President-elect Donald Trump, pushing allegations of his complicity with Russian email hacks and boosting protests of the inauguration. Brian Fallon, a former spokesman for the Clinton presidential campaign, has said there’s “too much evidence” that Mr. Trump was in league with Russian spies trying to rig the election. Former Clinton campaign communications director Jennifer Palmieri used Twitter to circulate maps of protest sites for Mr. Trump’s inauguration on Friday. Neera Tanden, a policy adviser on Mrs. Clinton’s campaign, has made her anti-Trump stance...

    A Senate Republican is blasting President-elect Donald Trump's criticism of Rep. John Lewis (D-Ga.), praising the lawmaker for his leadership in the civil rights movement in the 1960s. Sen. Ben Sasse (R-Neb.) on Saturday seized on Trump's characterization of Lewis as "All talk, talk, talk - no action," pointing out that his "talk" made a significant contribution in the civil rights movement. "John Lewis and his 'talk' have changed the world," Sasse tweeted.
