Can We Keep Our Eyes on the Prize

Update: I neglected to mention another option to avoiding doing the hard things like a full repeal of ObamaCare. A weak-kneed roll-out of ObamaCare-lite. Although there hasn’t been time yet to dissect the new proposal, you can bet it doesn’t resemble anything they have been promising us. I can’t wait to hear the tough-talking sales pitch of the watered down bill.

What has everyone in politics, every cable news outlet, every talk radio program been discussing since Friday? Well, it’s not ObamaCare, cutting taxes, or really any of Trump’s big agenda items. Of course, it’s wiretapping, meetings with Russians and tweeting.

For now four solid days we have been pummeled with wiretapping scandal stories. If it’s not specifically about wiretapping, it’s about Jeff Sessions or others meeting, or not meeting with the Ruskies. Oh, and also the salaciously commented on photo of Kelly Ann Conway perched on the couch in the Oval Office.

That’s four days the administration and those on Capital Hill have not been thinking of or acting on the campaign promises that were made to us – a full repeal of ObamaCare – cutting taxes and confirming the next supreme Court justice, etc., etc.

This one story has sucked all the oxygen out of the room. On Monday, Rush Limbaugh spent virtually his entire show – three full hours harping on the feud between Trump and the democrats and zero time on anything else. I don’t listen to Hannity anymore, but I’ll bet he did the same. read more

Singing Skyscrapers

Storms brought misery to Britain last week as 90mph winds brought down trees, blocked roads and caused travel chaos.

But for those living in certain areas, the gales brought the very real headaches caused by screeching buildings and ‘singing’ skyscrapers.

A number of buildings have been heard giving off whistling noises during blustery weather, usually caused by architectural features added to the outside.

Torbay Hospital is the latest modern building to discover a ‘whistling’ problem in high winds

Torbay hospital is the latest to be added to the list, where locals noticed that a new metal facade on the building was whistling in the wind.

But the health centre is not the first to be hit by the issue. The Beetham Tower in Manchester has developed a reputation for howling, humming and whistling every time the wind picks up, prompting repeated attempts to tackle the problem.

ObamaCare is Great – According to Only 22 Percent of Americans

from IBD:

The need for an overhaul of ObamaCare just got more acute, as a new survey shows that satisfaction rates among those enrolled in ObamaCare plans has taken a steep nose-dive this year amid premium hikes and reduced choices.

The new coverage of ObamaCare these days has been all about protests against repeal and the alleged increase in public support for the law.

But a survey of actual ObamaCare customers released this week paints an entirely different picture.

It found that just 22% of the 44,200 ObamaCare enrollees polled rate their health plan as good to excellent. That’s down from 77% who gave their ObamaCare plans high marks last year. read more

Canadian Border Patrol Can’t Handle all the Illegals

The Hits Just Keep on Coming! Every week there is more evidence of self-deportation. Ain’t it Grand. As I’ve predicted on many occasions – if we are serious about deportation, the word will get out and they will begin to leave on their own. We don’t have to lift a finger or spend a dime of taxpayer money.

However, if it keeps up, we may see Canada building a wall on its Southern Border.

The Daily Mail chronicles the new found pressure being put on the Canadian border patrol. They are the ones now demanding more agents as they struggle to cope with the pending flood of illegals trying to escape “Trump’s” America. read more

Mark Levin Presents Evidence of Obama Wiretapping

We’ve always known those in the Obama administration were dirty. I, as have many others have chronicled offense after offense Obama and his minions have perpetrated on political opponents, journalists and private citizens.

But now, we hope, it may be finally catching up to him and them. Yesterday on Fox News Sunday, Mark Levin put forth no less than eight pieces of evidence of the Obama administration attempt to derail the Trump campaign and to derail his presidency. As Levin put it – “the evidence is about the Obama administration spying.”

Mark says it’s not a question of whether there was spying, “we know they did..” The question is “who did they spy on, the extent of the spying.”

Watch Mark make his case: read more

Podcast – The Dirty Dems vs Jeff Sessions – Stop Listening to Ivanka

The democrats, led by the despicable Chuckie Schumer are pulling out all the stops, doing everything they can to disrupt President Trump, his Cabinet and his agenda. Senate Minority Leader Schumer has called for Attorney General Jeff Sessions to resign – and anything less will be unacceptable to him and the rest of radicals in the party – which is all of them. They need to be stopped.

President Trump would be wise to stop listening to his daughter Ivanka. She is battling with Senior Adviser Steve Bannon over global warming. Bannon wants Trump to dump the Paris Climate agreement, while Ivanka and her hubby Jared Kushner want daddy to drop his opposition to the agreement. read more

Obama Crime Syndicate Extorted Cash for Friends

Those who love government, love it, in part, for its authority to regulate evil private sector industries. Of course this is redundant, because as we know, all private sector endeavors are inherently evil. All private sector corporations would purposely poison, maim and/or kill all of their customers if it weren’t for government regulation forbidding them from doing so.

So when our government watchdogs sniff out a company which has produced a faulty product or otherwise swindled the innocent, you can bet a hefty financial penalty will follow suit.

Yet, as we’ve known for years, and others are now discovering, the Obama government was not as much an industry watchdog as it was possibly the world’s largest crime syndicate.

Ben Shapiro’s Daily Wire reports on a Fox News story that broke just Wednesday. “Advocates for big government and progressive power are using the Justice Department to extort money from corporations,” Tom Fitton of Judicial Watch told Fox. “It’s a shakedown. It’s corrupt, pure and simple.” read more

DIY Self-Driving Car

A self-driving Tesla comes with a hefty price tag, but a college student has given his Honda Civic similar abilities for a fraction of the cost.

Brevan Jorgenson has unveiled a device that replaces the rear-view mirror, which controls the brakes, accelerator and steering – and it only cost $700 to build.

The DIY device uses the hardware design and software shared online by Comma.ai last year, which had originally planned to upgrade cars with the technology.
