Conservatives Insist on Full Repeal of Obamacare

Hooray for Real Conservatives! Hopefully they will all stick to their guns and hold Leadership’s feet to the fire, so they do what they promised and successfully voted on in 2015.

from Breitbart:

Sen. Rand Paul, Rep. Mark Meadows, and Rep. Jim Jordan spoke with reporters Tuesday to discuss their opposition to any legislation that does not fully repeal Obamacare.
Senator Paul (R-KY) said:

Basically, conservatives are coalescing around a complete repeal. Conservatives want no less than to vote on what they did a year ago with the 2015 repeal bill. I think that we have to votes now to tell the leadership that this is what we want to do. read more

Half Chicken is Better than None

from The Blaze: 

A recent investigation into poultry sold at major fast-food restaurants in Canada suggests that Subway’s chicken could be more accurately named “only about half chicken.”

Last month, DNA researcher Matt Harnden, who works at Trent University’s Wildlife Forensic DNA Laboratory, tested the DNA of the poultry from six popular fast-food chicken sandwiches at five different restaurants. read more

WND Weekly Exclusive – Leftist Dogma and Steve Bannon’s ‘Deconstruction’

A few days ago, Salon.com, one of the more leftist websites you will ever read, assuming you would ever read it, posted a piece entitled, “Steve Bannon says Trump’s Cabinet of billionaires has been ‘selected for a reason … deconstruction.’”

The article included a rebroadcast of a session at CPAC with Chief of Staff Reince Preibus and Steve Bannon, Trump’s senior White House adviser.

Salon wrote, “Bannon confirmed that Trump’s Cabinet appointments aren’t there to govern. They’re there to destroy.” Well, that’s fairly chilling. Why would they say that, and what is the left really afraid of? read more

Firearms have come a long way from the days of the musket and flintlock, but they’re also much more complicated and involve trade offs. In preparing for missions, soldiers are often forced to choose between a close quarter or a magnified sight for their assault rifles as there’s no one-size-fits-all solution. read more

Joke of the Day

A local charity had never received a donation from the town’s banker, so the director made a phone call. “Our records show you make $500,000 a year, yet you haven’t given a penny to charity,” the director began. “Wouldn’t you like to help the community?”

The banker replied, “Did your research show that my mother is ill, with extremely expensive medical bills?” read more

The Democrat Plan to Prevent a Conservative Court

On Tuesday the Washington Times reported that Senator Tom Udall (D–NM) proposed a compromise for P

resident Trump and the Republicans. Udall suggested that rather than Trump nominating Neil Gorsuch to the supreme Court, he instead simultaneously nominate both Gorsuch and Obama’s nominee, Merrick Garland to the High Court.

He advanced the notion that president Trump “should meet privately with the court’s current eight justices and see if any of them are retiring. If one of them is planning to step down at the end of this term in June, Mr. Trump should promise to nominate Judge Garland — and he and Judge Gorsuch could be voted on at the same time.”

As an odd aside, Tom Udall, son of the late Mo Udall, democrat of Arizona, who served in Congress for 30 years, is second cousin to Senator Mike Lee of Utah. A liberal hack like Tom Udall, with a CR “Liberty Score” of ‘F’ and a conservative voting record of 4%, comes from the same family tree as does Mike Lee, the only Senator with a perfect 100% “Liberty Score.” Small and weird world isn’t it.

Does anyone else see what is happening here? This is classic “good cop – bad cop,” and I guess Udall has decided to play the good cop in a cesspool of democrat bad cops. read more

The ancient art of origami has been inspiring engineers and designers for decades. The principles behind this Japanese folding technique have been appropriated by everyone from solar array designers for implementation in space to medical engineers creating ingestible robotics. Now a team at Brigham Young University (BYU) has created a lightweight bulletproof shield inspired by a Yoshimura origami crease pattern. read more

Another Teacher Exposed as a Leftist Radical

In the days of old, when I was in school, I carried with me a small audio recorder. Back then, we had these mini cassette tapes. Many people used them for dictation. I took mine to class. When the teacher began to speak on a topic I thought might be of particular import, I switched it on while I was taking notes, just in case I missed something.

It was no smartphone, but still a very handy tool. Not once do I recall a teacher or professor telling me to “turn that thing off” – that I didn’t have permission to record in class. In fact, most thought it a pretty good idea.

That was then – when teachers were paid to teach, not advocate. To this day, I don’t believe I knew the political affiliation of a single one. Doubtful a student today could make the same claim.

Today is an entirely different atmosphere, in college, and increasingly in high school classrooms. It seems today, teachers are doing everything but teaching. They join and sometimes organize protests, marches and sit-ins. They advocate for every wacky liberal cause imaginable, and from the sound of some, they appear to not know enough to teach the subject for which they are being paid. But really, many are being paid to indoctrinate – not teach. read more
