    Yesterday the House finally passed a bill to repeal or revise or revamp or rearrange Obamacare, which is both good and bad news. The good news is it's a desperately needed political win for Trump after getting rolled on the spending bill earlier in the week, turning Pelosi's glee into Schumer's tears. Now Trump can turn his attention to tax reform. The bad news is Paul Ryno & company endorsed the Leftist mantra that healthcare is a right. They abandoned all thought that the free market - not government - should run it and individuals should be responsible for their own insurance. Instead, they produced Obamacare-lite - a crap sandwich that keeps the central provisions of Obamacare in place. It will still implode but now the GOP will own it.  Our only slim hope of ridding ourselves of this Obamanation is for Chinless Mitch to draft a bill with the things we were promised like free market solutions, competition across state lines, tort reform, etc. Don't hold your breath!
   Here's a question. Why does the left bother with "Resistance" theatrics when the Republican Congress funds their entire wish list anyway? Wasn't Trump supposed to drain the swamp? Instead all we get is business as usual as the GOP completely caved to the Dems this week on a $1.1 trillion spending bill to avoid a government shutdown through September. Here's what's in the bill: funding for Planned Parenthood, Obamacare, the Iran deal, the National Endowment for the Arts, refugee resettlement and sanctuary cities. Not only is there no funding for a wall, but -- thanks to the deft negotiating skills of Speaker Ryan -- the bill actually prohibits money from being spent on a wall. If this is the budget deal we get when Republicans control the House, the Senate and the presidency, there's no point in ever voting for a Republican again. Are you tired of all that winning yet?
   Speaking of losers - Hillary Clinton just can't stop making excuses for her humiliating loss to Trump almost six months ago. It's really becoming a pathetic spectacle. In several appearances this week she took "absolute personal responsibility" by blaming the Russians, FBI Director James Comey, misogeny and Wikileaks for her November debacle. If the election had taken place on Oct. 27, Clinton maintained, she'd be president. Perhaps if we were to all live in a vacuum where the electorate ignored everything the Democratic Party's flawed nominee said and did (and tried to hide), she would be in the White House -- although even that's debatable. Hillary Clinton isn't President because voters didn't like her, didn't trust her, sniffed a strong whiff of corruption about her, and wanted change. She ran a miserable campaign. Comey's letter didn't prevent Clinton from ever setting foot in Wisconsin. The Russians didn't force her to her waste her money running up the popular vote in Democratic areas of non-competitive states. Wikileaks didn't make those epic mistakes; she did that all on her own.  She managed to lose to a man whose disapproval among the electorate on election day was 60 percent.  You know it's bad when even the Lib Media tells her to "shut the f**k up and go away already." My sentiments exactly!
   If there's anything more pointless and obnoxious than the White House Correspondents dinner, I'd be hard pressed (see what I did there?) to think of it. President Trump wisely chose to skip out on the media's annual self-congratulatory banquet. And by "self-congratulatory," I mean the kind of activity which we were warned would grow hair on our palms. The evening was unsurprisingly filled with one-sided ugly remarks which can't remotely be described as jokes about Trump being a Nazi, a liar, Putin's stooge, etc. The event was emceed by alleged comedian Hasan Minhaj, who was particularly smug about being a Muslim - the first to appear at the prestigious podium since Barack Obama. I'm not saying that his act was intended to bomb, but based on the material it seems likely that he was expecting to get 72 virgins out of the deal.
   Finally, this week marked Trump's first 100 days in office - an arbitrary number used by the Fake News Media to bludgeon The Donald for his supposed ineffectiveness. While I'd agree that Congress has done little, (his Twitter Tourettes and lack of core principles not withstanding), Trump's accomplishments so far have been impressive. He has already cut more regulations than any president in history. He pulled us out of TPP & approved the Keystone Pipeline. He cut the deficit by $100B. Just his rhetoric was enough to dramatically curtail illegal immigration. The stock market is booming. He set the wheels in motion for the world's biggest tax cut and the repeal(ish) of Obamacare. He gave us a 5-4 edge on the U.S. Supreme Court for many decades to come. He dropped the world's biggest bomb on ISIS. 
   Perhaps his best accomplishment to date is that President Trump has managed to expose to the world just how insane liberals are, inspiring in them levels of hostility and looney-ness never before experienced, even among the unhinged left. In the first 100 days since Felonia von Pantsuit was not inaugurated, the goofy collection of commie traitors, coastal snobs, and crack-pot weirdoes that hilariously styles itself "#TheResistance" has only managed to successfully resist success. The louder they wail, the more likely we'll get to drink these sumptuous liberal tears for at least 8 more years. The fun has just begun.

"Do not blame Caesar, blame the people of Rome who have so enthusiastically acclaimed and adored him and rejoiced in their loss of freedom and danced in his path and given him triumphal processions.

Blame the people who hail him when he speaks in the Forum of the "new wonderful good society" which shall now be Rome's, interpreted to mean "more money, more ease, more security, and more living fatly at the expense of the industrious".

- Marcus Tullius Cicero (106-43 BC)

"It does not take a majority to prevail - but an irate, tireless minority, keen on setting brushfires of freedom in the minds of men."

-- Samuel Adams

"Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free."

-- Ronald Reagan


"The American people will never knowingly adopt socialism, but under the name of liberalism, they will adopt every fragment of the socialist program, until one day America will be a socialist nation without ever knowing how it happened".
