A key piece of American Government are unaccountable judges whose rulings effectively make law.

Donald Trump appointed 11 more Judges to the Federal Bench. His first batch are all being filibustered and delayed by the democrats. Expect this batch to be as well.

The Supreme Court could revisit a 40-year-old precedent that allows government agencies to force public sector workers to pay union dues, an issue the court deadlocked on in 2016 following the sudden death of Antonin Scalia.

The National Right to Work Foundation will file two petitions on Tuesday with the high court challenging coercive dues schemes for government employees (Janus v. AFSCME), as well as monopoly bargaining rights for home health aides that receive Medicaid dollars (Hill v. SEIU). The suits seek to overturn Abood v. Detroit Board of Education, a 1977 case that enabled government agencies to require the payment of union dues or fees as conditions of employment.

The cases are huge. They could decimate Unions across the country. When Wisconsin enacted their reforms – the number of Union Members paying dues dropped by 1/3. Read more here.

This is amongst the reasons why the democrats are on tilt trying to stop judges and why they forced the filibuster rules to be shredded by the Republicans on behalf of Justice Gorsuch.

One tactic the democrats are using is fake spam bots in order to give the appearance of support that does not really exist for their agenda. One key item to the democrats is Net Neutrality – a policy that was intended to lead to regulation of content on the internet. Since the right has to rely heavily on the internet to balance the broadcast media, this is a big deal.

Fake comments supporting Net Neutrality flooding in from Russia.

The latest analysis shows over a seven-day period 92,161 comments were submitted using a French domain extension; 84,618 from a German domain extension; and 60,220 from a Russian domain extension.

Read the story, and you will see that the comments are also full of racial slurs against Ajit Pai, the FCC Chairman.

Democrat Senators making as many as 30 Requests for Information one-at-a-time from Trump Nominees. They have been on a rampage against the EPA, which was their most effective policy-making entity under obama.

“We’ve received 20 letters from Senator Carper and 10 have already received a detailed response,” said Jahan Wilcox, an EPA spokesman. “Of the remaining 10 letters: Seven were received in the past month and we are working to respond as quickly as possible.”

and this:

Requests submitted by the committee included an inquiry about a Politicoarticle suggesting the EPA is considering hiring private lawyers to rewrite the Obama administration’s Waters of the United States regulation. The EPA sent its response on May 17.

Other requests that have been fulfilled included documents related to Pruitt’s decision to not attend the Oklahoma GOP fundraising gala. The response was delivered June 1.

Another response, dealing with documents about Pruitt’s ethics agreement, was fulfilled in three days. The committee sent a letter on May 2 regarding Pruitt’s lawsuit seeking to overturn the EPA’s 2015 National Ambient Air Quality Standards (NAAQS) for Ozone while he was attorney general of Oklahoma. The EPA sent a final response on May 5.

An additional response to a Senate inquiry will be mailed on Friday.

Get the idea?

Donald Trump himself has finally started engaging the obstructionists himself:

And the GOP said those confirmations Mr. Schumer is touting only came after a series of roadblocks erected by Democrats on Capitol Hill. More than 60 percent of the president’s picks have faced Democratic-led filibusters, and his Cabinet saw the largest number of “No” votes of any president in modern history.

Democrats have used parliamentary tactics to try to delay many of Mr. Trump’s appointments, asking for delays in committee and forcing filibuster voters on the Senate floor.

Mr. Trump’s solicitor general and two other high-profile Justice Department appointments have been awaiting a vote in the Judiciary Committee for weeks, with Democrats exercising their right under committee rules to demand a delay.

This will not play well for the democrats in 2018. Independents do not like stagnation without a message.

I had alleged during 2016 that Google was rigging search results to favor Hillary Clinton. Google is getting hammered by the EU for rigging search engine results to the tune of $9Billion. It makes you wonder what Google is up to.

Project Vote – a child of ACORN, funded by George Soros, shut its’ doors.

Another PV leadership luminary, Director of Advocacy Estelle Rogers, honed her skills as an attorney for ACORN before that group was forced to disband under charges of corruption and fraud in November 2010. And let’s not forget Field Director Amy Busefink, who pled guilty to two gross misdemeanor counts of conspiracy over paying people to register voters in Nevada when she was working for ACORN.

PV staff worked hand in glove with President Obama’s Justice Department to attack voter ID laws in courts across the country and sign up millions of voters at welfare and other government agencies under Bill Clinton’s Motor Voter law. Of 1.3 million registrations Project Vote/ACORN submitted in the 2008 election cycle, more than one-third were reportedly invalid. Shocking? Not really.

In Broward County, Florida, scene of the attempted theft of the 2000 presidential election, the American Civil Rights Union (ACRU) is suing the county for having more than 100 percent of its eligible voting age population registered to vote. Many Project Vote attorneys have joined forces with the S.E.I.U. and Democrats to fight the legal battle for the county. There should be fireworks at the county courthouse in Fort Lauderdale in late July when the case goes to trial.

To give you just a taste of how bad Broward’s voter rolls are, this county of nearly two million people, with a non-citizen population of over 250,000, removed only 19 people from its voting rolls over the last five years for lacking U.S. citizenship.

12 Employees of a Dem-Linked Voter Registration Firm Indicted for Election Fraud:

Local prosecutors in Marion County, Indiana, charged 12 employees of a Democratic-linked voter recruitment organization of submitting fraudulent voter registration applications prior to the 2016 election.

According to the Associated Press, prosecutors say that 11 temporary canvassers working for the Indiana Voter Registration Project made and sent in an unknown number of fake voter applications. The canvassers’ supervisor, Holiday Burke, was charged as well.

The organization, the AP reported, is managed by Patriot Majority USA  a group with strong ties to Democratic Party, including former President Bill Clinton and former Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid, as well as labor unions.

The investigation by state authorities began last August when a clerk in Hendricks County marked around a dozen voter forms with suspicious information. The probe went into 56 counties where the organization collected 45,000 applications. Patriot Majority rejected the notion the group engaged in any illegal activity.

Election Fraud in Texas:

Authorities have issued their first arrest warrant in the Dallas County voter fraud case that roiled the May municipal elections in West Dallas and Grand Prairie, causing 700 suspicious mail-in ballots to be sequestered.Miguel Hernandez, 27, of Dallas, is wanted on a charge of illegal voting, a third-degree felony. He is accused of visiting a woman around April 10 and collecting her blank absentee ballot, then filling it out and forging her signature on it before mailing it to the county, according to an arrest warrant affidavit. Authorities say they plan to make more arrests in the case. Last month, Assistant District Attorney Andy Chatham and Elections Administrator Toni Pippins-Poole named two persons of interest in the investigation, neither of whom was Hernandez. Prosecutor Mike Snipes, a former judge and federal attorney, said Friday afternoon that he couldn’t say too much about the case, as it’s ongoing. But he did say his office had been contacted by a woman from West Dallas who “knew she’d been duped into sending out an improper ballot” and contacted the Dallas County District Attorney’s Office. She was shown a lineup and identified Hernandez.

Turn Texas Blue, now we know how… This series on election fraud will be continued.

Unless you are completely politically disconnected, and stumbled upon this blog by happenstance, you know that Donald Trump has been under a barrage of fake news and “anonymous leaks” that have asserted all sorts of nefarious plots by Mr. Trump to collude with Russia, alleging chaos within his staff and impeachable offenses.

Did you know that Trump and Bannon were fighting and Trump was going to fire him?

Did you know that Trump was going to fire Sean Spicer?

Did you know that Trump was going to fire Jeff Sessions?

Hey, wait – they’re all still there!

This week – disgraced former FBI director James Comey outed himself as a leaker. That’s right, he said he leaked a “memo” about a conversation with Trump in order to compel the appointment of a special counsel over the russia-did-it lie.

Comey said Attorney General Jeff Sessions lied and Comey said Trump tried to pressure him to drop the investigation in to former National Security Director Michael Flynn. Comey got lit up by both Jeff Sessions (the AG) and Mr. Trump himself.

One thing is clear – James Comey was trying to bring down Donald Trump after years of covering up scandals for the Clintons (most recently, the email server scandal of Hillary Clintons). Comey attempted to extricate himself from his cover up of the Hillary Clinton email scandal by implicating former AG Loretta Lynch for pressuring him to drop that investigation.

Donald Trump threw down the gauntlet – offering to go under oath to prove that Comey lied about him asking him for Loyalty and pressuring him to drop the investigation of Michael Flynn. These are the only remaining unresolved issues after Comey’s testimony.

Another leaker, “reality winner” got popped for leaking NSA documents. She is a real winner, who talked about joining the Taliban and burning down the White House.

The leaks were all stoking the inner fantasies of the media who are still feeling violated on a deep personal level after Hillary Clinton’s “stunning” loss to Donald Trump. Sorry, folks – I knew Trump was going to win starting in about August. Sometimes, drinking your own Kool-Aid has lifelong effects.

The New York Times got hammered:

In response to a series of questions from Republican Sen. James Risch about false reports based on unnamed sources, Comey exposed a widely cited New YorkTimes February 14 “bombshell” article alleging that “Trump Campaign Aides Had Repeated Contacts With Russian Intelligence.” The article, Comey made clear, was almost entirely false, apparently based on sources who either simply didn’t know what they were talking about — a trend Comey noted among many of the leak-based stories coming out of the media.

When asked later by Republican Sen. Tom Cotton if it would be fair to characterize the Times story “as almost entirely wrong,” Comey replied, “Yes.”

Then CNN got hammered:

In fewer than two weeks, one CNN employee has “beheaded” President Trump, another has called Trump a “piece of sh*t,” and the network itself has been caught on video stage-managing a protest. If that is not bad enough, just yesterday The Daily Wire broke the news that CNN’s own parent company, Time-Warner, is sponsoring the nightly “assassination” of Trump.

Overall, it has been an awful year for CNN in the credibility and basic decency department, as CNN anchors have called for people to be raped and attacked 12-year-old girls who don’t want to be exposed to naked men. The network itself is also facing a discrimination lawsuit from upwards of 175 minorities who claim they were discriminated against in ways not seen since the Jim Crow South.

Things got impossibly worse for the Hitler Network Wednesday when the Comey testimony so blatantly exposed a lie the network had been pushing for days, CNN actually did something almost unprecedented … it issued a humiliating and high-profile correction of a huge story that proved to be — no surprise — a heaping pile of Fake News.

That’s right – CNN retracted a story. They alleged that Comey was going to light Trump up for Obstruction of Justice and collusion with Russia. They lied.

CNN also got caught staging an anti-ISIS protest with Muslims. There was no protest, it was a lie being created for the cameras by CNN.

NBC News had a retract a story as well:

NBC News was forced to issue a correction on Sunday evening after spinning its newest talent Megyn Kelly’s interview to falsely claim that Russian President Vladimir Putin “does not deny having compromising information” on President Donald Trump.

Ouch. Another nugget from the Comey testimony, the basis of the whole Russia Did it Lie was itself a lie.

Information revealed this week on how Mylan overcharged for its EpiPen opened the door for new attacks from a primary opponent of West Virginia Sen. Joe Manchin (D.), whose daughter is CEO of the pharmaceutical company.

A report released on Wednesday showed Mylan overcharged the government $1.27 billion after the company settled with the Department of Justice for just $465 million last year. Things worsened for Mylan when it was reported that a top executive was paid $98 million that same year.

Manchin’s Democratic primary opponent, Paula Jean, turned the latter report into a political attack against the West Virginia senator, who has taken $127,000 in campaign contributions from Mylan and urged his colleagues to be “open-minded and fair” when investigating the scandal.

“I will just leave this here,” Jean wrote linking to the CNN report. “You can ask my opponent about it.”

Read more here about Joe Manchin D-WV and his primary challenger. The net result is that Manchin wins the Primary, but will be vulnerable to the extreme in a state trump won by 42%. (70-28)

J.B. Pritzker, a Democratic candidate for governor in Illinois who was recently reported to have sought political office from former governor and convicted felon Rod Blagojevich, has donated millions to the political campaigns and causes of failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.

The Chicago Tribune first reported that Pritzker sought political office in 2008 from Blagojevich, who was sentenced to 14 years in prison for corruption charges stemming from soliciting bribes for political appointments after Barack Obama had won the presidency and left his Illinois Senate seat.

During one phone conversation, Pritzker said that he was not interested in taking over the vacated Senate seat, but rather expressed interest in becoming treasurer of the state, according to FBI wiretaps of phone conversations.

“Ooh, interesting,” Blagojevich said. “Let’s think about that. You interested in that?”

“Yeah,” Pritzker responded, “That’s the one I would want.”

Blagojevich asked Pritzker for a “significant campaign contributions” during one of the conversations. Blagojevich also informed Pritzker at the time that a spot for attorney general could possibly become available.

The beat continues for the democrats. Ouch. Read the rest of this latest scandal from Illinois.

In Nevada – the issue of assisted suicide has become an explosive issue in the healthcare debate.

The party of death, the democrats who have brought us abortion for any reason at any time, who want to let criminals off easy, muck up efforts to stop terrorist murder, instill confusion over what genitalia mean (when they aren’t covering for the removal thereof from young girls by their muslim fathers), are breaking new frontiers:

A Nevada physician says insurance companies in states where assisted suicide is legal have refused to cover expensive, life-saving treatments for his patients but have offered to help them end their lives instead.

Brian Callister, associate professor of internal medicine at the University of Nevada, said he tried to transfer two patients to California and Oregon for procedures not performed at his hospital. Representatives from two different insurance companies denied those transfer requests by phone, he said.

“And in both cases, the insurance medical director said to me, ‘Brian, we’re not going to cover that procedure or the transfer, but would you consider assisted suicide?’ ” Dr. Callister told The Washington Times.

Got it? I’ve been an insurance agent for nearly 20 years and I have little regard for insurance carriers. It is clear they were in bed with Obama over the creation of the ACA (except for Anthem Blue Cross) because they had their hands out for the free stuff from the taxpayers – but this sort of claims management is the latest wrinkle in what I have always believed about Health Insurance Carriers. They really would rather sick patients die, kind of plays in to the hands of the eugenics movement on the left.

Trump’s department of Health and Human Services took a shot at ACA of its’ own. Despite losing in court several times, the Obama admin defiantely pushed forward with a contraception mandate. The arguments the Obama admin made in court were fascist and basically said that the Church had no right to have an opinion in the medical field and thus the court should force the will of the Obama Admin on the church. They lost, several times.

When the president told the Little Sisters of the Poor their “long ordeal will soon be over,” he meant it. Just weeks later, the Trump administration is elbow deep in a regulation that would sweep aside almost eight years of Obama’s faith-based hostility. While Congress tries to pull out Obamacare by the roots, the White House is busy ensuring that whatever time the law has left won’t be spent punishing religious organizations, colleges, and charities. Under a draft rule that leaked yesterday, employers would no longer have to pay for health care that offers pills or procedures they morally oppose.

It’s a long-overdue response to Obama’s “birth control mandate,” which took five trips to the Supreme Court, siding with religious liberty every time. Now that the Constitution has a friend in the White House, President Trump and HHS Secretary Tom Price intend to make good on their pledge to defend Americans’ First Freedom. Predictably, the Left has flown into full-blown hysteria over the news, which even they would admit was inevitable. The mandate wasn’t just unpopular — it was indefensible, as dozens of court cases proved.

That hasn’t stopped outlets like Time magazine from pushing their sky-is-falling narrative. “Birth control without a co-pay could disappear if a regulation reportedly drafted by the Trump administration is rubber stamped, potentially leading to higher out-of-pocket costs for hundreds of thousands of women,” write the fearmongers. As liberals try to spin this into a debate about denying women free “reproductive care,” the reality is that the federal government already gives out free birth control at Title X clinics all across America. What President Trump is making clear is that it’s not right to order conscientious objectors to provide it, under threat of crippling fines, when there are other ways to get it to them. Plus, the Federalist jabbed, there’s no such thing as “denying access” to birth control if these businesses are paying their employees wages they can use to buy whatever they want. (Which, as most people will tell you, isn’t exactly a financial hardship at $6 a pack.)

Mark Rienzi, senior counsel with the Becket Law, pushes back on the exaggerations of the Left. “You will hear the number 55 million bandied about by opponents of the Little Sisters of the Poor. But the actual number of affected employees is less than 3/10ths of one percent of 55 million. This is Chicken Little on steroids.” Not to mention that the rate of insured women who got free birth control soared to 59 percent from 14 percent in 2012. So if there is a “war on women,” it’s on women with religious beliefs — who seem to be the only ones hurting under Obama’s law. We applaud Secretary Price and President Trump for working to right this wrong and restore the First Amendment freedoms that are essential to making America great again.

Then there is this. 2013-2017, Obamacare Premiums have gone up 105%.

The cost of an individual ObamaCare policy has increased by an average 105 percent from 2013 to 2017 in all 39 states that have used the federal exchange, the Trump administration said Tuesday. A senior Health and Human Services official said the findings are significant because they look at the increases from the time key ObamaCare provisions took effect, compared to most year-to-year studies that fail to show the 2010 law’s “true effect.” The average monthly premiums increased from $224 in 2013 to $476 in 2017, according to the report. The HHS official said the cost doubled in 20 of the states and tripled in three of them.

This is what the democrats are fighting to keep.

In 2016, there were 287 insurers who offered insurance on the Obamacare exchanges and in 2017 that number dropped to 218. There were 34 states that saw the number of insurers decline, 15 states have the same amount of insurers from 2016 to 2017 and only one state added an insurer in 2017.

Five states, Alabama, Alaska, Oklahoma, South Carolina, and Wyoming, have only one insurer operating on the exchanges, leaving consumers with little choice.

In one-third of counties in the United States, about one in five enrollees, or 21 percent, have access to only one insurer operating on the exchanges. This is a significant increase from the 2 percent of enrollees in 7 percent of counties that had access to only one insurer last year.

Read the rest of this expose’ here. It is gruesome.
