Obamacare repeal’s last gasp at '48 or 49 votes,' senator says

WASHINGTON — Sen. Bill Cassidy, R-La., says his last-ditch attempt to repeal and replace Obamacare is only a few votes shy of 50 and could pass before the fast-approaching Sept. 30 procedural deadline.

“We’re probably at 48, 49 [votes] and we’re talking to three more,” Cassidy told reporters at a briefing Friday morning. “I’m pretty confident we’ll get there on the Republican side.”

But Cassidy, a physician representing a state that expanded Medicaid under Obamacare, cautioned that he had not done a formal whip count. He is optimistic after presenting his bill during a lunch on Thursday of GOP senators. At one point, Sen. Dean Heller, R-Nev., told the group he was co-sponsoring the measure even though he’s been urged to “lay low” on health care while facing a tough reelection race back home, Cassidy said. Afterwards, several senators told him they’d vote yes on the bill.

“I told my wife when I got home last night that yesterday may have been my best day as a senator,” Cassidy said.

Another of the bill’s sponsors, Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., is pushing the White House and GOP leadership to champion the bill, Cassidy said. President Trump released a statement earlier this week praising their efforts. “I sincerely hope that Senators Graham and Cassidy have found a way to address the Obamacare crisis,” Trump said.

The bill faces long odds, however, with Sen. John Thune, R-S.D., comparing passing it before the deadline to a “double-double bank shot” in pool. There’s also very little chance Senate Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., would bring the measure to the floor unless it was guaranteed to pass, not wanting to repeat the spectacle when the Senate’s last attempt at repealing Obamacare failed dramatically in July.

The procedural vehicle that allows a bill to pass with just 51 votes is set to expire at the end of this month, adding urgency to the effort.

Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., announced Friday morning on Twitter he would not support the bill, which he called “Obamacare Lite.” If just two more GOP senators come out against it, the bill is dead, given that no Democrats support the measure.

“It would take an extraordinary lift to get that done before the deadline but I know there’s a lot of interest in our conference to get something done on that,” Thune, a member of the GOP leadership team, said Tuesday. “The clock’s ticking and it’s a pretty short window.”

The bill repeals Obamacare’s individual mandate, employer mandate and medical device tax. It then combines Obamacare’s different funding streams for states into one block grant that gives states more control over Medicaid and the insurance exchanges.

One result of the plan is that states that refused to take federal dollars to expand Medicaid under Obamacare, such as Texas and Virginia, would receive much more funding, which governors could use to cover more low-income residents. Other states, however, would lose billions of dollars of federal funds under the plan, most notably Massachusetts. (One outside analysis found 20 states would lose 35 to 60 percent of their funding compared to current law.) And Congress would have to vote to reauthorize the plan in 2026, or states would lose all of their funding.

“Graham-Cassidy does a much better job of distributing health care dollars fairly,” Cassidy said.

Paul tweeted Friday afternoon that the bill “redistributes money from [Democratic] states to republican states.”

The Congressional Budget Office (CBO) has not yet scored the bill, and the Senate parliamentarian would also have to examine it and make sure it’s eligible to pass under the special reconciliation procedure that only needs 51 votes. Vice President Mike Pence would likely be called in to provide the 51st vote if Cassidy and Graham are able to get to 50.

“Mitch [McConnell] has always said show me you can get 50 votes,” Cassidy said. “I’m meeting with senators. My staff is calling staff, whatever we can do to make sure we have 50.”

Heroic Senator Vows to Hold Defense Bill Hostage Unless Congress Ends Iraq & Afghan Wars

The Senate on Monday took up the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), passing a motion in an 89-3 vote which allowed the legislation to proceed. That action essentially limits the procedural debate on the legislation and moves the NDAA to a full vote as early as Wednesday morning.

However, Paul made clear on his Twitter account that he had every intention of slowing down the passage of the NDAA – which sets forth the Pentagon’s budget and major programs for the next fiscal year beginning October 1 – until he was guaranteed a vote on amending the AUMF in Afghanistan in Iraq.

“I will object to all procedural motions and amendments unless and until my amendment is made in order and we vote on these wars,” Paul wrote.

He went on to note the length of time that the US military has been present in Afghanistan and Iraq.

“We have been there for 16 years. It is time for them to end. It is time for Congress to vote on whether or not they should end.”

Paul noted that the Senate was in a “quorum call,” unable to act because of his protest.

He vowed to continue the protest until Congress agreed to vote on whether or not to end the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Paul noted that his protest was for the soldiers, adding that “hypocrites” are happy to “pretend concern over our constitutional duty to declare war” but are happy to “block any vote on ending any of our 7 current wars.”

The senator said that he “sits nearly alone,” but he is happy to fight by himself if needed.

In addition to Paul, the NDAA cloture motion was opposed by Democratic Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont and Oregon Democrat Ron Wyden.

Paul took aim at both the “anti-war left” and the “conservative right” in his series of tweets.

“Where is the anti-war left demanding the wars end? Where is the constitional [sic] conservative right demanding Congress reclaim its war powers?” he wrote.

Although an increasing number of lawmakers have been calling on Congress to pass a new AUMF for Afghanistan, Paul has largely been alone in his mission to put a deadline on Congress for a vote.

Paul did appear to strike at least a partial deal with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky) about an hour after initially issuing his threats to delay the NDAA passage, with McConnell guaranteeing Paul four hours on Tuesday to state his AUMF reasoning on the Senate floor, the Washington Post reported.

However, that wasn’t enough to get Paul to back down, with the senator later reiterating his plan to “continue to fight, and if necessary, object, to continue this debate, secure a vote, and force Congress to do its duty.”

The war in Afghanistan, which began in 2001 as a US response to the September 11 attacks, is the longest war in US history.

Democrat Senator Gillibrand Blames Capitalism for Gun Violence on Netflix’s ‘Chelsea’

To hear New York’s junior senator, Democrat Kirsten Gillibrand, talk, you would think that the reason for random gun violence deaths was due to the sales of gun silencers. In the September 8, 2017, episode of Netflix’s Chelsea titled “Comfortably Naked,” Gillibrand describes the reason she left the ever-shrinking ranks of moderate Democrats to join in with the far-left wing crowd and, of course, it has to do with guns.

Chelsea Handler interviewed Gillibrand in her Washington, D.C. Senate office and the scene opens with the camera lingering oh-so-briefly on two photographs – one of Gillibrand with former First Lady Michelle Obama and one with the woman responsible for her move to the Senate, Hillary Clinton. Gillibrand was appointed to her seat when Hillary Clinton became Secretary of State.

When Handler asked Gillibrand why she left her more moderate positions as a Democrat on guns and same-sex marriage, Gillibrand chose to focus on guns. Sadly, she now sounds like every other anti-gun lefty in D.C.- it’s all about emotions and little about the U.S. Constitution.

Sen. Gillibrand: As a House member, the only lens I really saw guns through was the Second Amendment, that people loved going hunting. It was a very hunting culture. And I have to tell you, when I was appointed to the Senate, I had to learn really fast, and I went to Brooklyn, I met with a family. I can tell you how horrible it is to meet with a mother and a father who lost their daughter when a stray bullet ends her life when she’s just hanging out with her friends. And when you hear these stories, they are so horrific and you can imagine in your own mind what it would be like for your child to be taken from you by gun violence. And I just said, “I’m gonna do whatever I can to make sure your daughter’s life was not in vain and that, in fact, because of her death, we are gonna fight hard to make sure it doesn’t happen to some other child in our communities throughout our state.

Interesting that Gillibrand doesn’t connect the dots between guns and the Second Amendment, right? She doesn’t bring in facts about registered gun owners saving lives in violent situations. And did Gillibrand really think the Second Amendment only pertained to hunting?

Then, about the gun lobby, Gillibrand launches into an attack on the legal purchase of gun silencers, of all things. Ironically, she notes all the hoops to be jumped through for a purchase – paperwork and certification – then describes the purchases as though they are a free-for-all requiring no such requirements.

Sen. Gillibrand: The saddest thing about so much of what is wrong with this place is that it’s about money, and the gun lobby is literally run by the gun manufacturers. It’s not by hunters. It’s not about hunting. It’s about gun manufacturers who literally are now lobbying to make sure suppressors – gun silencers — can be readily available. There’s restrictions on that. You can’t just go to a store and buy one. You have to be certified do paperwork all this kind of stuff. And, that’s made a difference. So, I talk to my police commissioner and I talk to law enforcement, they’re like “You’ve got to be kidding me. If you’re gonna make it easy for a criminal to buy a suppressor, it’s gonna make our job harder.” It’s ludicrous. But for the gun manufacturers, it’s just a value-add project. They would love to have people spend an extra 200 bucks every time they go into a gun store and buy a suppressor. So, that’s what’s …excuse my French. That’s what’s wrong with Washington, is that so much is based on money and who needs to be greedy and have a higher profit. It’s disgusting.

Confused by all that? Yeah, me, too. She describes the process of buying a gun silencer and then blames the store for selling it lawfully. Apparently, Gillibrand also isn’t a fan of capitalism or free enterprise.

At the end of this nonsensical ramble of an interview, Gillibrand expresses her disdain of the Citizens United ruling and her support of publicly funded elections. “I think if you got rid of the money in politics, you’d have better candidates running, more diverse candidates running, and you’d have much better outcomes.” I’m guessing when Barack Obama’s presidential campaign became the first billion dollar run, she wasn’t so anti-First Amendment.

 

 

It sounds like Senator Gillibrand is willing to circumvent both the First and Second Amendments in order to pursue ideological politics. That, to me, is disgusting.

Senator Rand Paul Just Blasted Trump’s “Big Govt” Move to Militarize Local Police

policepolice

Washington, D.C. — Those who would sacrifice freedom for security, a wise person once said, deserve neither freedom nor security. A society who thinks that being kept under constant police surveillance and militarized police presence is a society that does not desire freedom. And, when the commander in chief of that society openly advocates for both constant police surveillance and a heavily militarized domestic police force, this should be exposed and resisted.

Luckily, for Americans, there are still a few good politicians in D.C. who are unafraid of going against their own party to point out the disastrous nature of building a domestic standing army. Rand Paul is one of those people.

After the White House announcement this week, noting that they are going to over turn one of the few good things Obama did while in office—ending the 1033 program—Paul was quick to cry foul.

As the Ron Paul Liberty Report points out, local police are not meant to be warriors. They’re not meant to look or act like an army. President Trump is planning on moving very far away from the U.S. Constitution that he swore to uphold.

Ironically enough, the supposed ‘freedom loving’ Trump supporters who voted him in are choosing to remain entirely silent on the president’s decision to make America a police state again. Sadly, those on the right perceive opposing the 1033 program as a ‘liberal’ move or anti-police — neither of which are true.

The 1033 program is an unprecedented expansion of government. Creating a massive militarized presence inside the borders of the US — to be used against the American people — is the exact opposite of limited government and conservative politics.

Unfortunately, the two-party paradigm is so powerful that it can often blind people to reality and make people think they are for small government—when in actuality—they are promoting and advocating for the expansion of the freedom hating police state.

1033 program

1033 program

As the classic adage goes, Republicans are for big government, if with war, and Democrats are for war, if with big government. And now, the American police state is once again preparing for war at home.

When you tell someone that their police department has bayonets, their immediate reaction is denial or ridicule. “Why would cops need bayonets?” they ask.

Exactly, why would cops need bayonets? Why do they need grenade launchers, .50 caliber rifles, Apache attack helicopters, camouflage uniforms, or tracked tank-like vehicles for that matter?

Over the past decade and a half, up until 2015, police departments used the 1033 program to acquire these weapons of war. The feds provided surplus military hardware to local police to fight a seeming war against its own citizens. These actions went unchecked and very little government or public oversight existed.

Then, when the events that took place in Ferguson beamed across the globe, the militarized U.S. police state revealed its ugly face to the world.

The images of the militarized police in Ferguson made clear that the days of Andy Griffith and Mayberry are a distant memory. They had been replaced by something that looks as if it belongs on a war-torn battlefield in Afghanistan or Iraq.

These revelations caused many to question why small police departments across the country were procuring mine-resistant armored personnel carriers, grenade launchers, and other weapons of war.

Because of backlash from the citizens, the federal government was forced to act. In January of 2015, in an extremely rare move toward liberty, then President Obama signed Executive Order 13688. And now, Trump has duped his supporters into thinking that in order to MAGA we have to militarize police again. In fact, it is the exact opposite.

Unfortunately, Trump has duped his supporters into thinking that in order to MAGA we have to militarize police again. In fact, it is the exact opposite.

To think that cops must be armed to the teeth with weapons and equipment from war to ‘protect’ Americans is as asinine as it is dangerous. These weapons of war will rarely be used to keep Americans safe. In fact, they are more likely to be used against freedom loving Americans who dissent once the federal government destroys the country—and government is unafraid of admitting it.

A police sergeant in Morgan County, Indiana admitted in May of 2014 that his department had obtained an armored vehicle in part because of returning military veterans were deemed domestic terror threats by Homeland Security in 2009.

In August of 2013, Concord, New Hampshire Police Chief John Duval secretly contacted Homeland Security and demanded an armored vehicle due to the alleged “threat” posed by peaceful libertarians.

The MIAC Report, a federal training document famously presented to Missouri police in 2009, went as far as falsely tying supporters of former Presidential Candidate Ron Paul and the Constitution to “extremist groups” as well.

In 2014, a sheriff’s deputy admitted on video that these weapons of war were needed to fend off “constitutionalists” with firearms.

Now, those former constitutionalists, including the repugnant turncoats at Infowars, who once opposed this program under Obama, are now praising their own enslavement—because their party is in power.

Those who do not see this move for what it is would do well to remember this most compelling warning from James Madison.

“The means of defense against foreign danger, have been always the instruments of tyranny at home. Among the Romans it was a standing maxim to excite a war, whenever a revolt was apprehended. Throughout all Europe, the armies kept up under the pretext of defending, have enslaved the people.”

US never really planned to leave Afghanistan, Russian senator says

The USA will never leave Afghanistan and they have never had plans to do so. This is a key region for them considering the need to influence Pakistan, India and China,” Frants Klintsevich, the deputy head of the upper house Committee for Defense and a veteran of the Soviet campaign in Afghanistan, told RIA Novosti on Tuesday.

The senator added that the existence of US military bases in Afghanistan was critical for the Pentagon’s rapid reaction capability in the region.

We should not forget the fact that the United States have 700 military bases scattered all over the world. Four-hundred of these are in conservation status, they only have enough staff to maintain their functioning, but when there is a need for a military involvement these bases can be rapidly switched into operational status,” he said.

Klintsevich’s comments came soon after US President Trump announced that he had ordered the US military to aggressively engage the Taliban and “fight to win.”

My administration will ensure that you, the brave defenders of the American people, will have the necessary tools and rules of engagement to make this strategy work,” Trump said in a speech at the Army’s Joint Base Myer-Henderson Hall, next to Arlington National Cemetery.

In the same speech, Trump played down any contradiction between the new Afghanistan strategy and his campaign promises to pull out troops from the country. He noted that a hasty withdrawal could create a vacuum for terrorists, adding that the 9/11 attacks had been planned and directed from Afghanistan when the country was ruled by a government that sheltered terrorists.

Trump also said that he has lifted restrictions by the previous administration “to expand authority for American armed forces to target the terrorist and criminal networks that sow violence and chaos throughout Afghanistan.”

In mid-August, the Taliban, which is designated a terrorist group in Russia, released an open letter to Trump in which it claimed that the military operation in Afghanistan was in vain despite the huge costs, both in terms of human casualties and material losses. The letter then urged Trump to make a decision that would always see him remembered as an advocate of peace. The US State Department has confirmed the receipt of the letter and said that Washington was considering various options as far as possible troop removal from Afghanistan is concerned.

Democratic Missouri Senator Chappelle-Nadal: ‘I hope Trump is assassinated!’

    

A Missouri state senator, Maria Chappelle-Nadal (D-University City), has landed herself in a bit of hot water with with the U.S. Secret Service today after posting, then deleting, a comment on Facebook which read, “I hope Trump is assassinated!”

Unfortunately, as Chappelle-Nadal should have learned at this point in her life, the internet never forgets and the St. Louis Post-Dispatch managed to get their hands on the post:

    

Asked about the comment, Chappelle-Nadal later told the Post-Dispatch that she was just “frustrated” and didn’t really mean it.

“I didn’t mean what I put up. Absolutely not. I was very frustrated. Things have got to change.”

That said, and again a lesson Chappelle-Nadal probably should have learned at this point in her life, the Secret Service tends to take threats on the life of the President seriously and has already confirmed they’re investigating the situation.

The U.S. Secret Service is investigating a Facebook post from Missouri state Sen. Maria Chappelle-Nadal, D-University City, in which she stated: “I hope Trump is assassinated!”

The U.S. Secret Service’s St. Louis field office “is looking into this,” the office confirmed.

Kristina Schmidt, special agent in charge, told the Post-Dispatch that “hypothetically” in such investigations, agents try to “determine intent, to determine if there was a violation of federal law. If there is, then we refer it to the U.S. Attorney.”

“Our primary goal is to determine if there is intent and meaning behind it,” Schmidt said.

Meanwhile, Chappelle-Nadal told the Post-Dispatch that her comment was posted in response to “concerns that I am hearing from residents of St. Louis.”

In an interview, Chappelle-Nadal said her comment stemmed from frustration over the events in Charlottesville, Va., over the weekend, in which a white supremacist protester allegedly rammed his car into a group of counter-protesters, killing a 32-year-old woman.

“I put that up on my personal Facebook and I should not have,” Chappelle-Nadal said. “It was in response to the concerns that I am hearing from residents of St. Louis. I have deleted it, and it should have been deleted, but there is something way more important that we should be talking about.”

Chappelle-Nadal said that in the wake of Charlottesville, “there are people who are afraid of white supremacists, there are people who are having nightmares. There are people who are afraid of going out in the streets. It’s worse than even Ferguson.”

So, if we understand the logic flow correctly, Chappelle-Nadal apparently figured that killing President Trump would rid the world of hate groups and simultaneously address all of the concerns of her constituents in St. Louis?

Australian senator shocks Parliament by wearing a Burqa into the Senate









 






The Queensland Senator donned the Islamic garb when she appeared at Parliamentary Question Time on Thursday afternoon.

One Nation party leader Pauline Hanson has shocked the Senate by walking into the chamber wearing a burqa.

The Queensland Senator, who has been outspoken about her opposition to the burqa, was pictured in the Islamic garb when she appeared at Parliamentary Question Time on Thursday afternoon.

Standing to address the Senate, Ms Hanson called for the Government to ban ‘oppressive’ full-face coverings.

She pulled the stunt ahead of a debate on full-face coverings in public.

‘I’m quite happy to remove this, because this is not what should belong in this Parliament,’ she said.

Her appearance was met with laughter and outrage, prompting Senate President Stephen Parry to call for order.

‘In light of our national security of this nation, will you work to ban the burqa in Australia?’ she said.

‘There have been 13 foiled national threats against us with terrorism, three that have been successful and Australians have lost their lives.

‘Terrorism is a true threat to our country. Many Australians are very much in fear of it.

‘A large majority of Australians wish to see the banning of the burqa.’

Ms Hanson said the idea for her burqa stunt was born when Senate President Stephen Parry told her last year that anyone could wear a burqa in Parliament.

She said the burqa was an ‘important issue’ facing modern Australia.

In a statement released on Wednesday, Senator Hanson said the burqa ‘presented barriers to assimilation’.

She said the Islamic dress ‘disadvantaged women from finding employment, was causing issues inside our justice system, presented a clear security threat and had no place in modern Western society’.

Ms Hanson’s dress choice prompted Senate President Stephen Parry to call for order in the chamber.

‘I’ve been advised by the clerk that the identity of Senator Hanson was established before she entered the chamber,’ Senate President Stephen Parry said.

The stunt drew anger from the opposition benches, with crossbencher Derryn Hinch questioning whether Senator Hanson could remain in the chamber.

‘I understand that she is not a Muslim, not of Islamic faith. Can I appear tomorrow in fancy dress unchallenged?’ he asked the president.

Senator Parry said he was not going to dictate the standard of dress for senators.

Senator Hanson will move a motion in parliament on Thursday, to be debated in the afternoon, calling on the federal government to ban the burqa.

Independent senator Cory Bernardi also weighed in on the stunt.

‘I did warn you that proroguing the parliament was in national interest. Things are getting seriously weirder by the day,’ he posted to Twitter.

Attorney-General George Brandis choked back tears as he tore into Senator Hanson for wearing the Islamic garb onto the floor of the Senate.

The fiery One Nation senator had urged the government to ban the burqa for ‘national security reasons’ but Mr Brandis was having none of it.

‘I am not going to pretend to ignore the stunt that you have tried to pull today by arriving in the Chamber dressed in a burqa.

‘We all know that you are not an adherent of the Islamic faith. I would caution and counsel you with respect to be very, very careful of the offence you may do to the religious sensibilities of other Australians.

‘We have about 500,000 Australians in this country of the Islamic faith. And the vast majority of them are law abiding good Australians.’

Australian SJWs (or communists) are calling for Pauline Hanson to be banned from parliament on Twitter.

The government’s top law enforcement official, Senator Brandis said he had responsibility for national security policy.

‘And I can tell you, Senator Hanson, that is it has been the advice of each Director-General of security with whom I have worked and each Commissioner of the Australian Federal Police with whom I have worked that it is vital for their ntelligence and law enforcement work that they work cooperatively with the Muslim community.

‘And to ridicule that community, to drive it into a corner, to mock its religious garments is an appalling thing to do and I would ask you to reflect on what you have done.’

Ms Hanson’s stunt sparked a social media frenzy.

‘Pauline Hanson has absolutely no shame. She is beyond any level of decency. Should be banned from parliament,’ one woman said.

‘I tell you what, for anyone who didn’t realise it was Pauline Hanson under that burqa, it would have been a rude shock,’ another said.

One person supported her message and said they ‘agree that the burqa does not belong in Australia. We are not Saudi Arabia. It is ugly and scary’.

Missouri state senator calls for Trump’s murder in latest push for violence against the president

(INTELLIHUB) — A Missouri state senator has become the latest leftist to call for the murder of President Trump and is now facing calls for her resignation after the shocking comment was posted on Facebook Thursday morning.

Democratic Sen. Maria Chappelle-Nadal made the now deleted comment on her Facebook page after being told by a left-wing activist that his cousin was stuck in the Secret Service for two more years despite not being a fan of Trump.

After the activist wrote about being worried that he would receive a visit from the Secret Service himself, Chappelle-Nadal replied, “No. I will. I hope Trump is assassinated!”.

After numerous calls for her resignation, Chappelle-Nadal remained defiant, telling reporters, “Hell no”, before literally comparing MURDER to someone cheating on their wives.

“In another message, she confirmed she was aware of calls for her resignation but reiterated that she intended to keep her seat,” reported News-Leader.

“I’m not resigning,” she said. “Legislators cheat on their wives and are not asked to resign.”

Chappelle-Nadal then doubled down, Tweeting out a message that seemingly implies that her call for Trump’s assassination stands.

Take a second to think about how insane one has to be to openly call for the murder of the sitting president and then Tweet about how hate and bigotry should not be tolerated.

Can you say Trump derangement syndrome anyone?

Unfortunately, actual calls for Trump’s death are nothing new, with numerous examples of similar violent rhetoric being heard across the mainstream media. That’s right, outlets such as CNN have directly aired threats of murder against Trump while claiming he is the hateful one.

As we reported late last week, former CIA operative (and friend of Robert Mueller) Philip Mudd openly declared that the government is going to kill Trump during a segment on CNN.

“In yet another stunning display of the very real deep state war being waged against Donald Trump, CNN talking head and former CIA agent Philip Mudd has openly threatened the president with murder,” Intellihub News wrote.

“Let me give you one bottom line – as a former government official, the government’s gonna kill this guy,” Mudd stunningly revealed.

Just days later, establishment GOP consultant and noted anti-Trump zealot Rick Wilson declared that he supports the lynching of “fascists” after previously declaring the president to be one on numerous occasions.

As Intellihub News reported, “Fresh off of calling for a GOP civil war to take out the president, Wilson has gone off the deep end by using the Charlottesville attack to imply that the president may need to be lynched.”

“I like my fascists the old-fashioned way; dead, hanging from lamp-posts as we liberate their victims,” Wilson stunningly posted on Twitter.

To recap, politicians and the mainstream media have for months openly called for the death of Donald Trump while pretending they are the ones fighting against hate. You truly can’t make this stuff up.
