Democrats Colluding With Shooter?!

The Republicans and the FBI must immediately open an investigation into the shooting at the baseball diamond in Virginia to find out if Bernie Sanders (I-VT), Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), Chuck Schumer (D-NY), or any other Democrat colluded with the shooter in order to win the upcoming baseball game.

It is being reported that the shooter was a staffer for Senator Sanders during the 2016 presidential campaign.

If you're looking for a motive for this dastardly act, I'm told by anonymous, unnamed, unreliable sources that there were illegal wagers being placed and the Democrats stood to lose tens if not hundreds of dollars if the Republicans won the game.

If necessary, an independent counsel should be named. I hear James Comey isn't busy.

James 'Captain Courageous' Comey Really A Weasel

Former FBI director James Comey is more of a fortune teller, by his own account, than investigator.

Comey fired up his crystal ball on more than one occasion in the past year.

While coming to the conclusion that Hillary Clinton showed no 'intent' while committing over 10 felonies involving her private servers including storing top secret information on unsecured servers, the destruction of over 30,000 emails, the cleaning of her hard drives with a program called BleachBit, allowing her assistant to send classified emails to a computer controlled by her assistants husband, destroying government cell phones with hammers, and more.

When Comey claims that President Trump said he hoped Comey could let the investigation of former national security advisor Michael Flynn go, Comey, who said he felt it was an order, was under obligation to immediately report the conversation to his supervisor, Attorney General Jeff Sessions, because, as such, it was an attempt to obstruct justice. Comey said he didn't report it because he felt, I guess because he had consulted his crystal ball once again, that his supervisor, Attorney General Sessions was going to recuse himself and we know that AG Sessions did just that 17 days later. Unfortunately, after the recusal Comey didn't bother to report it to the next in command at the Attorney General's office either. Maybe it wasn't an order, or maybe, just maybe, it wasn't that important.

Comey also said during the hearing that he wrote down his recollections of his meetings with President Trump because he feared the President would lie about the content of their conversations. Did he have some reason to believe that President Trump was that big of a liar or was he consulting his crystal ball again?

Why would the director of the FBI want to work with and for a man he distrusted so much and who he believed had attempted to obstruct justice?

McCain Is Ready For Retirement

It was obvious that Senator John McCain (R-AZ) was not in control of all his faculties when questioning former FBI director James Comey. The time has come for Senator McCain to retire to his home in Arizona.

Paris Agreement

I am always amazed by the things liberals say without any proof and they continue to say those things over and over. So often, in fact, that people believe them to be true without questioning the validity of such statements..

The other day before President Trump said that we would not stay in the Paris Agreement there were some outrageous claims being made about it.

From Wikipedia: The Paris Agreement "is an agreement within the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) dealing with greenhouse gas emissions mitigation, adaptation and finance starting in the year 2020." The agreement, which is non-binding, says that "each country determines its own contribution it should make in order to mitigate global warming. There is no mechanism to force a country to set a specific target by a specific date."

Of course our former President, HRH Obama, in is zeal to show how important it is to show the world how sorry we are for being so successful,l committed the United States to pay twice as much money as any other country on earth towards this farcical agreement and did so without going the United States Senate for ratification of this non-binding, unenforceable agreement. China and India, perhaps the world's two largest polluters, would pay nothing.

The left would have you believe that 70% of all Americans believe that we should be a part of this non-binding, unenforceable agreement at all costs.

Of course, everyone should do what they can to responsibly reduce their individual carbon footprint, but do so without bankrupting themselves, and if a survey were taken a huge percentage of Americans would agree to this.

I seriously doubt that if the question were framed honestly that 70% of all Americans would support the Paris Agreement, which, by the way, isn't worth the paper it's written on. .

Would you be in favor of staying in the Paris Agreement if you would have to pay twice your current power bill beginning immediately and into the unforeseen future without any governmental subsidies no matter your income level?

Well perhaps, if you have some extra money to spend after paying for all the costs of Obamacare I guess you might.

And The Winner Is.......Nobody

There is an old adage that declares: A pig wearing lipstick is still a pig.

For years the goal of conservatives was to repeal Obamacare, aka the 'Un'Affordable Care Act. Then the moderates got into the act and decided that they would not be satisfied with just repealing Obamacare and would also replace it with another big government program, and the mantra became "repeal and replace," essentially putting lipstick on Obamacare

If the figures put forth by White House spokesman Sean Spicer are correct, Obamacare currently has an enrollment of about 10 million people. Using round numbers, another 14 million people who should have signed up for Obamacare have filed for hardship status and finally about six million people pay a penalty for not buying Obamacare Thanks to Supreme Court Justice John Roberts' ultimate wisdom that penalty is called 'a tax.'

The bill that was going to be voted on today in the House Of Representatives was going to do neither repeal or replace, but was merely going to tinker with, Obamacare.

Millions of Americans became part time workers because of Obamacare and millions more haven't been hired because of the employer mandates found therein.

Millions of Americans who have Obamacare have discovered that their insurance is basically unusable. In many cases the deductibles are so high people still can't afford to go to the doctor and those that aren't the beneficiaries of huge government subsidies are paying higher and higher monthly premiums with some increases over 100% year to year.

I understand that there were constraints put on the lawmakers because of the arcane rules of the Senate which require 60 votes to stop debate and allow a new bill to be brought up for a vote. Of course we know this wouldn't have stopped former Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) were he the current Senate Majority Leader. He would have just changed the rules of the Senate as he did a few short years ago when he wanted to appoint a bunch of liberal judges to the federal bench. Unfortunately, current Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) isn't man enough to rescue 1/6th of the American economy from the ravages of Obamacare by changing the Senate rules and would rather cling to the outdated Senate filabuster rule.

If it were as important as I believe it is to repeal Obamacare and replace it with a free market alternative which would hopefully drive insurance premiums and deductibles down, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell would step up and change the rules of the Senate.

Is that lipstick I see on Senator McConnell's collar?
