a little OT, but

The Women's March is holding its first National Women's Convention in four decades.

So, who did they get to headline opening night? Bernie Sanders

Not only is Sanders not a woman, but he tried to ruin the chances of the first ever female presidential candidate from a major party

Some famous feminists were not amused he is now getting the spotlight.

President Trump making a major move against obamacare.

"cost sharing" subsidies are not "premium" subsidies. Cost sharing kicks in as a function of income to reduce deductibles, copayments, and coinsurance.

Cost sharing only applies to Silver plans.

http://abcnews.go.com/Politics...on/story?id=50452522

White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said in a written statement that the Departments of Justice and Health and Human Services concluded that it would be unlawful to continue the payments, because there are no appropriations.

"The Government cannot lawfully make the cost-sharing reduction payments," Sanders said. "The United States House of Representatives sued the previous administration in Federal court for making these payments without such an appropriation, and the court agreed that the payments were not lawful."

The "cost-sharing reduction payments," worth an estimated $7 billion this year, are intended to reduce out-of-pocket costs for low-income Americans on Obamacare.

The president has threatened for months on cutting these payments, with many insurers already planning for this possibility. Lawmakers have also been anticipating the action. One bipartisan group has been working to find a solution to preserve these payments and shore up the markets. The pressure will now grow on them to act.

The move by the White House comes after the president on Thursday signed an executive order directing his administration to look into increasing access to Association Health Plans and short-term limited duration insurance. The president says the plans have the potential to make health insurance more affordable, but critics argue that the plans would not cover basic health benefits, like maternity care and prescription drugs.

I wish President Trump had killed this, but here we are.

http://www.breitbart.com/big-g...-across-five-states/

Middle Eastern refugees who will need major mental health treatment are being resettled across five states in the United States, under an Obama-era immigration deal that President Trump has failed to shutter.
Former President Barack Obama signed the Australian-U.S. refugee deal during his last months in office — promising to take 1,250 Middle Eastern refugees off Australia’s hands.

The refugees are being held in detention centers on Manus Island and Nauru Island and, despite Trump’s original statement calling the deal “a dumb deal,” the first group of roughly 50 of the mostly male, Middle Eastern refugees have already begun being resettled in the U.S., as Breitbart News reported.

The states who will be taking the refugees include Georgia, Oregon, Colorado, Texas, and Arizona, according to the Guardian. Under current federal law, states do not have to be notified before the federal government resettles foreign refugees in the region.

Refugee resettlement expert Ann Corcoran says the refugee deal is an “outrage,” and that American citizens would be up-in-arms over it if the mainstream media reported accurately on the deal.

the foreign refugees will also need serious mental health treatment when they arrive in the U.S. in the various five states

“They’ve been held in detention for four years. They’re free once they get here. They’ll be totally free. They’re going to need mental help treatment.”

While the U.S. will have to resettle the 1,250 refugees across communities, Americans will see no benefits to the deal. In exchange for resettling the refugees, roughly 50-60 Central Americans who are currently residing in Costa Rica, will be resettled in Australia.

Either Trump could stop it, or he couldn't, legally. I do not know the answer to this. You?

If he could, but didn't, the responsibility has now become Trump's, and it's a big problem.

If he couldn't, legally, and therefore didn't, it remains an Obama problem.

But if Trump wanted to, and couldn't, then why hasn't that been clarified and reported?

As DEMs attack President Trump for killing obamacare cost sharing subsidies, here is a reminder of how things went down under Obama:

On Jan. 13, 2014, a team of Internal Revenue Service financial managers piled into government vans and headed to the Old Executive Office Building for what would turn out to be a very unusual meeting.

Upon arrival, the I.R.S. officials, some of whom had expressed doubts that the Obama administration had the proper authority to spend billions of dollars on a crucial element of its health care law, were ushered into a conference room.

There, they were presented with an Office of Management and Budget memo laying out the administration’s justification for spending $3.9 billion on consumer health insurance subsidies. They were told they could read it but could not take notes or make copies. The O.M.B. officials left the room to allow their visitors a moment to absorb the document, and then returned to answer a few questions and note that Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. had been briefed and signed off on the legal rationale.

“It was not a common practice in my 10 years in government at the three agencies where I worked,” said David Fisher, a former I.R.S. financial risk officer, recounting the odd meeting during a deposition on May 11 conducted by investigators for the House Ways and Means Committee.

The clandestine nature of the session underscores the intense conflict over the spending, which is the subject of a federal lawsuit in which House Republicans have so far prevailed, as well as a continuing investigation by the Ways and Means and the Energy and Commerce Committees. It also shows that more than six years after President Obama signed the Affordable Care Act into law, Republican opposition has not waned.

After failing to win congressional approval for the funds , the Obama administration spent the money anyway and has now distributed about $7 billion to insurance companies to offset out-of-pocket costs for eligible consumers. The administration asserts that the health care legislation provided permanent, continuing authority to do so, and that no further appropriation was necessary.

Mr. Fisher, for one, did not agree, and his testimony is the first to reveal that some within the administration challenged the spending. Beginning in late 2013, he and his supervisor began having qualms about how the White House was planning to proceed. In combing through documents to make sure his agency could defend the spending in future audits, Mr. Fisher said he came up empty.

“Cost-sharing reduction payments are not linked to the Internal Revenue Code, as far as I could tell, directly anywhere,” Mr. Fisher, now in the private sector, said in his deposition, made public last week by House Democrats who feared Republicans would release selected excerpts. “There is no linkage to the permanent appropriation, nor is there any link to any other appropriation that was indicating what account these funds should be paid from.”

Trump is doing the right thing.
He's kicking it back to Congress to either appropriate the money for the "cost sharing" subsidies (bribes), or let Obamacare simply die. I sure hope Congress doesn't decide to bail it out.

<Steve Bannon has a stark message to Republican incumbents he considers part of the establishment: "Nobody can run and hide."

President Donald Trump's former chief strategist is promoting a field of potential primary challengers to take on disfavored Republicans in Congress and step up for open seats.

Comic George Lopez was booed off stage at a gala for juvenile diabetes in Denver last week, over an anti-Donald Trump routine that fell flat with the crowd.

We’re told the flap began when Trump backer and Liberty Media CEO Greg Maffei donated $250,000 but requested that Lopez cool it with the anti-Trump jokes at the Carousel Ball.

An attendee at the event — where tables sold from $5,000 to $100,000 to benefit the Barbara Davis Center for Diabetes — commented on a YouTube video that “George was asked nicely to stop making Trump jokes by a man in front row [Maffei] who just donated $250K.” But “George doesn’t, continues. Gets booed.”

We’re told that Lopez responded to Maffei, “Thank you for changing my opinion on old white men, but it doesn’t change the way I feel about orange men.”

Trying to recover and sensing the audience turn, Lopez said, “Listen, it’s about the kids . . . I apologize for bringing politics to an event. This is America — it still is. So I apologize to your white privilege.”

We’re told Lopez also told a joke about Trump’s proposed border wall with Mexico, saying, “I guess you can get some Mexicans to do it cheaper and they wouldn’t crush the tunnels ­underneath.”

When the audience did not respond well, he quipped, “Are you El Chapo people?” in reference to the drug kingpin who has used tunnels to evade authorities.

Lopez then announced a video segment — but he did not return to the stage, and a local newscaster took over the hosting duties.

TV host Chris Parente posted on Twitter, “big controversy: host of HUGE charity #CarouselBall, @georgelopez, makes political comments about Trump, drops f-bomb and is escorted out.” But a source close to the comedian insisted to Page Six that Lopez’s segment was “only supposed to be four minutes,” even though he was listed as the night’s emcee.

Excuse me, I thought comedians were supposed to be funny, not just bitter and angry.




The budget should be balanced, the Treasury should be refilled, public debt should be reduced, the arrogance of officialdom should be tempered and controlled, and the assistance to foreign lands should be curtailed lest Rome become bankrupt. People again must learn to work, instead of living on public assistance. ~ Cicero 55 BC

Identity politics. Always a failure.

I have two VERY, VERY, good friends, both of whom were born in Mexico and came to this country legally. They both absolutely hate illegals, and coincidentally, they both earned their citizenship by serving in the USMC.

I think they hate illegals more than I do (and they voted Trump).

Sorry George, you lose.

Robert Deniro continues to insult the president from public platforms. I have read several different instances of Deniro's attacks, and he never says anything substantive. Just a lot of "fuck Trump" and "motherfucker" insults.

The truth is that he does not have one substantive idea in his head, and knows nothing at all about any particular issue. He thinks if you call the president a motherfucker, you have presented a brilliant argument.

Deniro is a great actor, and like most great actors he is stoopit, roughly the IQ of a doorknob.
