Better than nothing: In a last-ditch effort to repeal Obamacare by Sept. 30, Senators Graham and Cassidy offer their bill, which "would eliminate federal funding for Medicaid expansion and for Obamacare subsidies that lower premiums, deductibles and co-pays in 2020".
Why we like the Graham-Cassidy proposal: "The new GOP health-care measure goes further than the failed one" to reduce entitlement spending.

Natalia Veselnitskaya "was initially cleared into the United States by [Obama's] Justice Department under “extraordinary circumstances” before she embarked on a lobbying campaign last year that ensnared the president’s eldest son, members of Congress, journalists and State Department officials".

More fake news? Washington Post headline reads: "Declassified report says Putin 'ordered' effort to undermine faith in U.S. election and help Trump".
We read the entire 25-page "declassified report": Page 7 suggests that our spy agencies have no concrete proof, only that the "CIA and FBI have high confidence in this judgment; NSA has moderate confidence".
Russians scoff at US report of election meddling; "all the accusations against Russia are based on 'confidence' and suppositions".
Love him or hate him (and assuming that everyone finds Donald Trump confusing at times), an old analogy is duly noted: "Even a broken clock is right twice each day."
As such, we ask all readers to proceed with open minds as we address the recently released Nunes memo concerning alleged illegal spying on Trump by our intelligence community.
For starters, we began by downloading and printing the recently declassified report, then unhurriedly perused it three times so as not to miss minor details.
Our verdict: Even if the memo fell short of making an ironclad case of corruption and conspiracy against the FBI, it contained plenty or red meat.
But we also assume that many details had to be omitted, else the memo could not be released to the public in its entirety, so we'll give readers our interpretation based on what we read and expand from there.
The memo states that former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe testified in December 2017 that no FBI surveillance warrant would have been obtained without the infamous and completely unsubstantiated Steele dossier, aka, the "Piss Dossier."
(Here's that dossier which supposedly held dirt on "Trump's personal obsessions and sexual perversions (and perverted) sexual conduct in Moscow" where he allegedly hired prostitutes to urinate in front of him.)
Now, back to the Nunes memo, which reports that the 'Piss Dossier' research was funded by "the DNC and Clinton campaign, via the law firm Perkins Coie and research firm Fusion GPS, to obtain derogatory information on Donald Trump's ties to Russia".
Backing that up was the ultra-liberal New York Times Oct. 24, 2017: "The presidential campaign of Hillary Clinton and the Democratic National Committee paid for research that was included in a dossier made public in January that contained salacious claims about connections between Donald J. Trump, his associates and Russia."
Plus, The Washington post reported Oct. 24 that "Marc E. Elias, a lawyer representing the Clinton campaign and the DNC, retained Fusion GPS, a Washington firm, to conduct the research. After that, Fusion GPS hired dossier author Christopher Steele, a former British intelligence officer with ties to the FBI and the U.S. intelligence community, according to those people, who spoke on the condition of anonymity."
How much did these desperate liberals pay for that uncorroborated dirt? The Washington Post reported that "The Clinton campaign paid the law firm of Perkins Coie $5.6 million in legal fees from June 2015 to December 2016, according to campaign finance records, and the DNC paid the firm $3.6 million in “legal and compliance consulting’’ since November 2015."
(Clinton and the DNC used the Perkins Coie legal firm to launder the entire $9.2 million in "legal fees" before it was forwarded to Fusion GPS to be used for opposition research against the Trump team.)
Here's where the fun begins: The New York Times which, as aforementioned, reported that the Clinton campaign funded the flimflam research, now claims that "The memo doesn't vindicate Trump. It's more proof of obstructionism."
And (bless it's little heart) The Washington Post which –– as aforementioned –– reported that "the Clinton campaign" paid $9.2 million for that research? Now The Post claims in sophomoric fashion that "The memo is really worse than the abuses that led to the American Revolution (because) King George plundered our seas, ravaged our coasts, burned our towns and destroyed the lives of our people." Huh?
Me thinks The Post's lady boy writer doth protest too much, and maybe liberals might yet admit there's likely more to this Trump broken clock thingy than they'd like, for even blind squirrels occasionally find nuts.
When it comes to ludicrous quotability combined with hypocritical hyperventilating, Nancy Pelosi holds her ground against the best fraudsters.
As such, when she indulged in exceptionally melodramatic pontifications Jan. 18 during her weekly Capitol Hill press conference, we could not resist having sport at her expense.
Waxing philosophically about the most recent budget debate (which led to the governmental "Schumer Shutdown" of Jan. 2018), Pelosi railed against placing spending for CHIP -- the Children's Health Insurance Program -- in a (wait for it) spending bill:
"This is like giving you a bowl of doggy doo, put a cherry on top and call it a chocolate sundae".
Of course, her premise was laughable, especially since House and Senate Democrats wanted to include amnesty for illegal-alien dreamers in the same "spending bill".
In our opinion, using taxpayer dollars to fund something illegal should have nothing to do with governmental spending, which begs the question:
How can Pelosi believe that showering illegal-aliens with taxpayer money should take priority over funding health insurance for 35.6 million children born to needy U.S. citizens?
And on top of denying those poverty-stricken children health insurance, how about Dems thinking first of illegal aliens while forcing our active military guys and gals to go without paychecks?
Like our picture illustrates, Pelosi's irony runs thick, and in regards to putting a cherry on top of doggie doo and calling it a sundae, well ...
Before judging this 'book' by its cover, let's ask ourselves if President Trump deserves all the hatred he receives 24/7.
Naturally, most liberals despise Republican ideals, but when mainstream reporters openly voice sick fantasies regarding slow and agonizing ways that Donald Trump might die, well ....
We'll admit our frequent embarrassments over many inane missteps of our 'Tweeter In Chief' –– especially his "sh-thole" comment while he referenced third world countries –– and we've made sport of him aplenty. And for different reasons, so did we of ex-President Obama, and wished he'd shut the (bleep) up, but when it came to fancying his slow and excruciating death, we drew the line.
But, back to the ugly business regarding the press' fantasies for Donald Trump's agonizing demise: Among the mainstream press reporters' longed for possibilities were "dementia, Alzheimer's, stroke, heart disease, drug addiction, colon cancer ..."
So, the point of the satirical picture was to express that –– no matter how much one person despises another –– some things are best whispered, or never publicly uttered, and often better kept to oneself, altogether.
But when it comes to candidly and publicly wishing slow and painful deaths upon others for political reasons, well .... that takes plentiful doses of blind hateful ignorance mixed with mental instability.
In light of that, perhaps we shouldn't hold the mainstream press' liberals accountable for uttering such things, after all.
On Jan. 4, 2018, climate-change conman and global warming charlatan Al Gore tweeted: “It’s bitter cold in parts of the US, but climate scientist Dr. Michael Mann explains that’s exactly what we should expect from the climate crisis.”
Of course, we shouldn't expect Gore to say otherwise after making himself filthy rich through the time-tested trade of political duplicity.
After losing his bid in for president in 2000, his net worth grew to $200 million by 2013, and to $300 million by 2017, but to make our position clear, we do not begrudge wealth to those who obtain it through honest means.
It's there we fall-afoul of this trickster, because his first movie, "An Inconvenient Truth" raked-in a licentious $24 million domestically in 2006 by promoting falsehoods, and after more-than 10 years, Gore's film is still alarmingly inaccurate.
Not only that, he used junk science to avow that the earth would be "a frying pan" in 2017, and it just wasn't so, no matter how the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) skewed actual data.
And there's this hypocritical pile of used oats: Al Gore claimed that he lives a "carbon free lifestyle", but an analysis by the National Center for Public Policy Research found that Gore's Tennessee home "guzzles more electricity in one year than the average American family uses in 21 years."
(In one month last year, the report found, Gore's home consumed more electricity than the average family uses in 34 months. The electricity used just to heat Gore's swimming pool would power six homes for a year.)
And, as we begin anew in Jan. 2018 with the mercury again dropping radically, even liberals at "Newsweek" honestly reported "It's so cold in the U.S. (that) temperatures will set new historic lows".
Oh, but not Al Gore, because -- as those of us in possession of common sense realize -- even habitually stupid man-made global warming believers have money in their pockets. And, despite having cold-numbed fingers after another record-breaking polar winter, they'll still find some way to open their wallets.
Having experienced multiple days when –– as the saying goes –– we felt damned if we did, or damned if we didn't, our sympathies went to Donald Trump December 6, 2017. It was assuredly one of those days for him, and though we frequently find reasonable fault with our 'Tweeter in Chief', December 6th was not one of those days.
Kudos to Trump for asserting that Jerusalem is Israel's capital, because Obama's thirst for revenge against Israel's Prime Minister Netanyahu led to a change in America's longstanding United Nations policy. Up to then, America's policy was to veto any U.N. Security Council resolutions put forth by anti-Semitic nations that defined Israel's occupation of Jerusalem's as a “flagrant violation under international law.”
By Obama altering that longstanding policy, he made all reasonable peace talks impossible by handing Palestine vast leverage to make unreasonable demands.
As such, as our picture above indicates, there never was any placating of Palestine's perpetual prerogative to ruin every peace accord by launching attacks on Israel merely to continue the Arab world's anti-Semite quest to push every Jew into the sea.
So it's "damned if you do or don't" for Trump, especially when adding the mainstream press' distain for anything pro-Israel, but there is good news: Trump's declaration ended a quarter century of lies:
When running for president 25 years ago, Bill Clinton promised to “support Jerusalem as the capital of the state of Israel.” President George W. Bush criticized Clinton for not following up on that commitment, but then W failed to make good on his too. During Barack Obama’s 2008 campaign, he stated that, “we should move our embassy to Jerusalem” but never recognized the city as the capital once he was elected.
Per se, we'll set aside our Trump faultfinding for another day.
Frankly Conservative doesn't consider itself the pinnacled arbiter of truth or fiction, but can recognize something that's fallen from a horse's rear.
Having said that, we've made clear our opinion of the 257 boring partisan-filled pages of Donna Brazile's "Hacks; The Inside Story of the Break-ins and Breakdowns That Put Donald Trump in the White House".
Despite many conservative pundits glomming onto 'revelations' from Brazile's book telling that Hillary colluded with the DNC and mainstream press to deny Bernie Sander the nomination, that was old news:
The first edition of Brazile's book was released early this November 2017, but The Washington Post reported in July 2016 that "DNC officials appeared to conspire" against Sanders, and that Hillary was the DNC's puppeteer.
But what about Brazile's 'bombshell' that Obama bankrupted the DNC by spending the entirety of its money on his 2012 reelection campaign? No surprise there, either: Fortune magazine reported Sept. 2013 that "The Democratic National Committee remains so deeply in the hole from spending in the last election that it is struggling to pay its own vendors".
And regarding Brazile admitting that she helped Hillary cheat in the primary debates by feeding her questions that would be asked by debate moderators? She not only denied it in her book, but also blamed Russian hackers for planting phony emails to that regard on the DNC server.
As such, we found this duplicitous explanation on page 299 why she publicly admitted passing those questions to Hillary: "Even if I couldn't remember sending it -- and couldn't find it in my online files -- there was no proof that I had not sent it. The best course was for me to apologize, and I did".
One simply would not forget doing wrongs of such magnitude, and we could ramble on regarding multiple obvious falsehoods from "Hacks", but since brevity is the soul of wit, we'll leave readers with this single dung nugget:
An example of Brazile's unflappable sycophantic worship of Hillary (which remained consistent throughout "Hacks") can be found on page 205 regarding Clinton's illegal email server: "I knew Hillary was an honest person, and if she had made a slip in her emails, it was not from a desire to hide anything".
Yep, we're still laughing, too.
With Facebook turning-over Russian-funded ads to Congress, and new revelations published in a tell-all book by ex-interim DNC Chair, Donna Brazile, perhaps this investigation of Russian meddling in U.S. elections should focus on Bernie Sanders.
However, in its never-ending attempt to infer that Trump colluded with Russia to steal the White House from Hillary, the Associated press regurgitated this moldy hairball one year later on Nov. 2, 2017: "U.S. intelligence services say the Russian use of social media was part of a broad effort to sway the 2016 presidential election in favor of Trump".
How disingenuous, since the AP reported concrete info to the contrary in that very same article: Of the ads that Facebook turned over to Congress for scrutiny, Russia sought to equally de-legitimize both Trump and Clinton, but offered something different to the campaign of the self-professed socialist, Bernie Sanders:
"The (Facebook) ads, seen by vast numbers of people, encouraged street demonstrations against Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton and fostered support and opposition to Bernie Sanders, Muslims, gays, blacks and the icons of the Civil Rights movement."
As such, Trump and Clinton received only "opposition" from Russia, but Sanders received both "support and opposition", plus Russia urged Sanders' pro-socialist "antifa" supporters to stage "street demonstrations" against Trump and Clinton, but not Sanders.
How better for Russia to accelerate America's demise than by promoting the election of a socialist president whose followers are masked thugs sowing anarchy and destruction in their wake? But even worse, by helping Sanders get elected?
And, had Hillary not taken control of the DNC to rig the nomination process against Sanders as Donna Brazile revealed in her book, the presidential election may have turned out differently: Poll after poll showed Sanders beating Trump by double-digits in a head-to-head race -- including Trump's own campaign polls.
So, the late Soviet Premier, Nikita Khrushchev's plan to "destroy [America] from within" was the Kremlin's goal, with chaos employed as the primary weapon. And, by implementing cyber warfare via Facebook propaganda, Putin's Kremlin expanded and refined Khrushchev's concept.
Is it time for U.S. intelligence services to take a closer look at Bernie Sanders? We think so, for if there's any evidence at all thus far suggesting that any presidential aspirant colluded with Russia, or received any aid and support from the Kremlin, it would be the self-professed socialist, 'Comrade Bernie'.
On Oct. 28, the anniversary of ex-FBI director, James Comey reopening his investigation into Hillary's illegal email server, we thought it proper to fondly reminisce.
Oh, how high Hillary believed herself to be flying, for in her mind (and nearly that of every pollster), she was an easy shoo-in to the White House. Even the occasion that Comey cited for reopening the investigation -- New York congressman Anthony Weiner's sordid online relationship with an underage girl -- was merely an inconvenient distraction.
Of course, we all occasionally find ourselves guilty of believing what we want rather than what's 100 percent true, but in Hillary's case, she's downright delusional. Clinton was such a horrid presidential aspirant that Trump -- a politically inept newcomer -- won states that have been Democrat strongholds for decades.
In the spirit of Halloween, and no matter who your chosen candidate was, let's momentarily forget all that to share a few laughs at 'Hilldabeast's' expense:
Flashback to May, 2017: Hillary said she took "absolute personal responsibility" for losing, then blamed Russian hackers, misogyny, WikiLeaks, Trump, FBI Inspector Comey, and even the debate questions.
June, 2017: After Hillary blamed Trump's win her own party's bad voter data, Democrats tell Hillary "The DNC's data was fine -- you just used it wrong".
Sept. 2017: Hillary states that "Millions" of white racists voted for Donald Trump.
August. 2017: Bitter loser Hillary blames Bernie Sanders for Trump's victory.
If one chooses to believe The Washington Post, "Trump now owns the broken health-care system", but only idiots believe that after Obama and his Dems wrote and passed it without any Republican votes.
Due to odious burdens of ObamaCare, Dems lost many seats, supporters, and donors, but with the help of a compliant liberal press, salvation could be at hand, thanks to showboating GOP U.S. Senators McCain, Paul, Collins, and Murkowski. And because you're reading this, the mainstream press has begun what could well-be the successful laying of ObamaCare's failures on Republican shoulders.
Any true conservative knows how the press falsely and successfully pinned sordid Democrat enterprises such as slavery, racism, Poll Taxes, Jim Crow, etc. on the GOP.
That's even after the Republican party was formed primarily to combat the slavery in Democrat controlled southern states. And it's second presidential candidate -- Abe Lincoln -- led the North to war against the South, and was later assassinated by Confederate sympathizer, John Wilkes Booth, but we digress.
What The Post used for ammo is Trump allowing "small businesses to buy alternative types of health insurance with lower prices, fewer benefits and weaker government protections", and the removal of "$7 billion in annual [taxpayer] subsidies".
Still, that doesn't make Trump "the owner" of ObamaCare: Even without removing those items which help subsidize insurance for lower income individuals, the ACA will implode in it's present form, at which time "only the most wealthy" will be able to afford insurance.
When put in those terms and given enough time, the liberal-leaning press will assure that the records of guilty Democrats are expunged, and The Post has already begun pounding that drum of liberal exaltation.
We've come to realize that there's no end to liberal hypocrisy, because while sensible persons grieved for those 59 souls murdered in Las Vegas, Democrat leaders did a celebratory jig: No better fortune could have befallen the liberal agenda of disarming America, or as Rahm Emanuel once said, "You never let a serious crisis go to waste".
And to make sure that those who might want to 'fact check' that Schumer quote (which seems extremely difficult to locate on Google search for some odd reason), we'll link to it here.
Accuse us of being harsh if you will, but we've spoken honestly while likewise marveling that Schumer and his minions can even sleep at night. For every person who died at that Country Music concert that fateful day, 60 babies were ripped from the womb in America, which totals more than 3,000 abortions each day, thanks to the liberals' 'heartfelt feelings' regarding the sanctity of life.
To put that into even grittier terms, according to the World Health Organization (WHO), that's 1.095 million abortions in America yearly, so just remember that the next time some ignorant liberal lectures you regarding how guns take innocent lives.
We take no pleasure in saying "We told you so", but we did: Trump's promise that "we'll be winning so much that we'll be tired of winning" was not a winning promise. Additionally, there were his outlandish campaign promises he had no means of keeping (or the intent to), and most likely, his ignorance of D.C. politics played a healthy roll, as well.
As the end of 2017 nears, our hopes dwindle that America will see much needed changes in this soon-to-be squandered historic era with all three branches of government under GOP management.
Trump promised that upon being elected he would "immediately repeal and replace ObamaCare - and nobody can do that like me ... and it's going to be so easy".
And those 11 million illegal aliens that he promised to remove by building a "massive deportation force"? That ain't happening, since he revised that deportation number downward to two or three million.
And then we discovered that Trump's administration is deporting fewer illegal aliens than Obama's, including convicted felons, which is neither acceptable, nor what he promised, and every conservative should be highly peeved.
And the fifty-foot high concrete wall he promised to build before anything else to slow illegal immigration, help stop drugs, human trafficking, etc., became an afterthought which dwindled to a see-through fence that totally relies on Congressional funding, which may not come. Ever.
We could go on, but will leave with this thought: Not all is lost if Trump stops his inane tweeting, stops belittling and firing everyone around him, and starts marketing a realistic agenda of ObamaCare repeal, tax reform, immigration reform, etc. This process needs to continue for at least six months to sell the ideas to American voters, who will then pressure their Reps and Senators into compliance.
Only the threat of losing their seats will prod recalcitrant Congressional members into action on ACA repeal and meaningful tax reform, but voters must first believe that Trump's plan is realistic, rather than his farfetched inane promises that only the most wishful thinking among us would and did believe. And there we go again saying "We told you so".
We wondered why our President would further poke the hornet's nest of a nuclear-capable North Korea when his earlier threat of "fire and fury" against the regime resulted in more missile launches. Kim Jong-un is a mentally unhinged despot, but to make matters worse, Trump goaded him by announcing to the United Nation's world body that the U.S. would "totally destroy" North Korea if it threatened us. We agree that America should defend itself, but Trump was foolishly stroking his own ego, which -- in our opinion -- could have provoked Kim into attempting his threat of "reducing America to ashes and darkness". We believe that Trump should speak firmly to this problem, but abandon his braggadocio, or more simply put, "walk softly and carry a big stick". More precisely, The White House should look into Israel's playbook of dealing with such threats when they surgically destroyed the nuclear capabilities of Iraq in 1981, and of Syria in 2007 when America lacked enough spine to help. Let's remember one thing: America's military might rests in superior technology, stealth, and strength, not in boastful strutting.
We never believed that Trump would keep his grandiose promises to build a wall, deport 12 million illegal aliens, repeal ObamaCare within his first 100 days in office, and eliminate our national debt by 2024. Although warning others that he's a closet liberal allows us clear consciences, our dreams remain encumbered.
Saying "we told you so" doesn't suffice, because "Make America Great Again" became impotent within eight months of Trump's presidency. He's promised not to deport 12 million illegals, plotted with Dems to increase how much debt we incur, all but said that ObamaCare is not repealable, and of the wall he promised to build immediately? It became "more of a fence" that will need to wait until after illegal-alien 'Dreamers' are granted amnesty.
So we ask of all you Trump voters -- how's it feel to have really cast your vote for Jeb Bush or Lindsey 'Gramnesty'? And for those MAGAs out there who remain loyal even after Trump's betrayal, and wish to again classify this blog as a (place description here), we'll just post a few headlines:
Trump betrays his base, cuts deal with Dems to first give illegal-alien dreamers amnesty, then 'build the wall later'.
TRUMP'S 'DEAL' IS ANOTHER HUMILIATION FOR JEFF SESSIONS: Attorney General Sessions had announced last week that DACA -- the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program -- "is being rescinded".
Talk-show giantess Laura Ingraham changes from Trump's cheerleader to sarcastic critic: “BUILD THE WALL! BUILD THE WALL! … or … maybe … not really”.
Talk show giant and Trump supporter Sean Hannity 'panics' & makes weak excuses, blames GOP leaders for 'forcing Trump to break his campaign promises'.
Flashback: Candidate Trump vowed “Number one, I’m building a wall. They’re not coming in anymore. Number two, immediately, we’re building a wall”.
Although we removed these pictures last year along with their outdated mini-story, they're worthy of a second look. Newly released documents show that ex-FBI Director Comey "had already decided he would issue a statement exonerating Secretary Clinton" well before the investigation into her illegal email server concluded, and well before she was even interviewed.
Just as we'd predicted last year, Comey's decision would hinge on political loyalties, and those pictures above convinced us:
Why would Obama and Bill Clinton (who disgust and loath each other) spend time golfing unless each had something the other needed? Obama needed Hillary's Presidency to expand his namesake legislation, aka "ObamaCare", and in return, he'd have his Department Of Justice Head, Loretta Lynch, make that pesky email investigation disappear.
Well, that apparently wasn't enough for Bill Clinton, who later met with Lynch in June 2016 before Comey made his decision to drop the investigation, but the plot thickens more.
Before Comey publicly made his recommendation that Hillary not be prosecuted, Lynch avowed that she would abide by Comey's recommendation to either prosecute Hillary, or not -- a statement Lynch would never make unless she already knew what Comey's recommendation would be.
As such, we're solidly convinced that Comey, Lynch, Obama, and the Clintons were all co-conspirators in a huge miscarriage of justice, all five broke federal law by interfering with and thwarting a federal investigation, and all five should be imprisoned. Period.
We don't call her "Debbie Dunce Cap" for nothing: After all the accusations of the Russians hacking Democrat National Committee databases to benefit Trump, who'd-a-thunk it was possibly an inside job?
As reported by The Washington Examiner, after "the IT aide of former Democratic National Committee chairwoman and Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, D-Fla., was arrested by federal law enforcement officials as he attempted to flee the country, enterprising reporters and law enforcement officials alike began to piece together the web of computer security breaches that reportedly occurred on the Congress member's watch ...
The IT aide "reportedly also consulted for the DNC and possessed the password for the iPad which then-chairwoman Wasserman Schultz used for official DNC business at or around the same time that the DNC's email system was hacked and DNC emails were published by Wikileaks".
Foreign-born Imran Awan reportedly breached the mainframe of the House Intelligence Committee as well as the House Foreign Affairs Committee. While doing so, Awan, his brother, and his wife (who has now fled to Pakistan), were paid a whopping $4 million in taxpayer-funded salary since 2009, according to public salary records.
Wasserman Schultz refused to fire the IT aide "despite being a known criminal suspect in a cybersecurity probe," instead placing him in an advisory capacity in order to circumvent the ban on having him as an IT provider. As of Tuesday morning (the day he was arrested), Wasserman Schultz still employed him.
As we said, we don't call Debbie stupid for nothing, and we're certain that this peach of a story regarding her ex-IT specialist will be ignored by the mainstream press.
Just in time for President's Trump's vulgar and deeply personal social media assault against MSNBC co-anchor Mika Brzezinski (which rightly drew condemnation from members of his own party) comes our own Monthly Opinion piece. We absolutely are not happy with this sort of immature behavior from our President, but musings of what could have been makes Trump's sophomoric peccadilloes easier to bear. Having said that, perhaps this Frankly Conservative compilation of satire better explains how things could be far worse.
Laugh of the month: "Large Canadian Arctic climate change study cancelled due to climate change".
Oh, when will these bobble-heads stop listening to their 'consensus of scientists' and pay attention to their frozen fingers and toes? Well, perhaps a few more lemmings have their eyes open after a huge expedition to study alleged melting Arctic ice was cancelled due to (wait for it) "severe ice conditions".
Not only that, this group was so worried they'd be stranded due to "the increasing demand for Search And Rescue operations (SAR) and ice escort, we decided to cancel the BaySys mission".
So unless there's something that remains obscured, even this bunch of climate change diehards wisely cancelled their trek to save the earth to avoid becoming trapped in ice that was actually increasing.
If this sounds familiar, perhaps it's because another similar expedition in July 2016 got stuck in the ice while intending to demonstrate “that the Arctic sea ice coverage shrinks back so far now in the summer months that sea that was permanently locked up now can allow passage through”. (That bunch relied on a "computerized model" showing that Arctic temperatures at that time were hotter than ever when they were actually below normal.)
But that's not all: Another bunch attempting to prove the imaginary melt in 2014 were stranded in ice for ten days, and frozen-in so soundly that it took two icebreaking ships -- one each from China and Norway -- to attempt a rescue, and even the Chinese ship became trapped.
Yet, many liberals believe that global warming is a larger threat than ISIS, and they wish to spend billions of taxpayer dollars fighting climate change when sensible persons know that only one of those entities is real. And it's the real threat that kills.
Gone, but not forgotten are the Obama's, and you can bank on one thing: They've no intention of drifting into obscurity. However, for Barrack to remain a noteworthy quotable figure on a global level, he must make regular public appearances. And for one who claimed he would become a President "guided by his Christian faith", Obama certainly failed in that regard.
The left portion of the above pic shows the Obamas in Indonesia while they still occupied the White House in 2010, and the rightward portion was taken May 2017 as they jetted around the world after vacating the White House. For purposes of maintaining phony facades of God-fearing Christians, they decided to stop by the Sienna Cathedral in Italy, and while they were there, break the dress code reserved for little people.
According to that article from The Gateway Pundit, "women are required to cover their shoulders when entering the historic Catholic cathedral", but they are indeed the Obamas, and -- like it, or not, the internet never forgets.
As it appears, the Holy Father -- The Pope himself -- re-instituted a dress code for the churches of Rome, his diocese. No one in shorts or sleeveless shirts was to be admitted into the church building.
Oh, but the Obamas are indeed an arrogant duo who deem themselves above The Pope, and just for starters, there's this VIDEO from 2006 showing Barrack twisting Bible scriptures while ridiculing Christianity. And there's this time he shamelessly invoked and misused scriptures while pushing for gun control legislation.
Or, how about the time he bashed Christianity and praised Islam during his Easter address in 2014? And for those who wish to suggest that Frankly Conservative accused Obama of being a closet Muslim, they're entitled to draw their own conclusions. However, we could not find one single occurrence of Barrack Hussein Obama ridiculing Islam as a religion, so if it walks and quacks like a duck, it must be the Obamas.
Even though we at Frankly Conservative supported GOP candidates other than Donald Trump in the primaries, we accepted him as our Commander in Chief after the election.
Items such as securing the border, appointing conservative jurists to the Supreme Court, strengthening our military, restoring powers to Law Enforcement, repealing Obamacare, etc. -- these items demand our support.
However, when Trump made crystal-clear his intent to lessen GOP majorities in Congress, we'll take soooo none of that sitting down. Just because his big push to pass Obamacare-lite didn't succeed because members of the House Freedom Caucus thankfully stopped it, Trump has no business tweeting the following:
"We must fight" House conservatives, and he's even encouraged primary challenges to each of them in next year’s elections. What matters more is this: Trump said earlier of the GOP establishment's Obamacare replacement plan with premiums 15 to 20 percent higher than ObamaCare: "I am 100 percent behind it".
Trump needs to stop hyperventilating, and most assuredly, stop tweeting this nonsense, because he's sinking beneath Obama's level. Not only that, by Trump threatening to winnow the number of House conservatives, he comforts our Democrat adversaries while providing matches & gasoline to the press . . . as if it needs more fuel for for burning conservatism to a crisp.
"MADAME PRESIDENT" graced Newsweek's November post-election 2016 "Special Commemorative Edition" cover, but as someone pontificated long ago, "fame is fleeting". For readers who still cannot see how pro-Democrat bias skews mainstream media judgment and ability to objectively report facts, perhaps they might join the bidding war for one of the 125,000 copies that made it into circulation.
About that: Newsweek had two issues pre-printed -- one for Hillary's win, and one for Trump's, but this Leftist magazine was so certain of Hillary's coronation that 125,000 copies of the Hillary version were sent-out prematurely for circulation.
And, If one sought to read sycophantic liberal drivel, he'd have found it between those pages, or as Newsweek's bootlickers told the tale, the election “was unique in a number of ways” because a female candidate faced a “the kind of demagogue previously unknown in American politics...
“President-elect Hillary Clinton ‘went high’ when her opponent and his supporters went ever lower...” and so it transpired that “on election day, Americans across the country roundly rejected the kind of fear and hate-based conservatism peddled by Donald Trump... The highest glass ceiling in the western world had finally shattered”.
Yep, fame is fleeting, but apparently, there's enough wistful Hillary supporters (or enough euphoric Trump supporters) wanting copies of this Newsweek mistake that the asking price goes as high as $10,000 each.
Although we understand the fervor over what could have been, or of having escaped that fate, Frankly Conservative's staff expressed no desire to enter said bidding war. Or as one penny-wise FC scribe well-put it, "ten grand is too much money for scratchy toilet paper".
According to a recent psychological survey, "moral outrage" is often symptomatic of one's personal guilt, which manifests itself through misdirected anger toward innocent persons or things.
More simply put, Bowdoin psychology Professor Zachary Rothschild and University of Southern Mississippi psychology Professor Lucas A. Keefer's research on guilt suggests that moral outrage over hot-button issues is sometimes self-serving.
For instance, how could anyone viewing the above picture believe those women honestly think President Trump wants to touch any part of their bodies, or he made them "feel violated"? Not a chance, and since they decided to make utter fools of themselves by perpetuating those falsehoods, it's easily measurable that their lack of self-esteem is misdirected as "moral outrage".
So, rather than feel angst and ire toward liberals who demean themselves, let's show some compassion in regards to their mental infirmities . . . providing we can stifle our laughter.
As the liberal media (and Democrat presidential wannabe Cory Booker) scream "RACISM" while declaring a "Constitutional Crisis" over Trump's travel ban from seven Muslim countries, we conservative should yawn. What's become self-evident is this: After the GOP regained both Congressional chambers, the White House -- and soon enough -- The Supreme Court, liberals have only one hope of relevance, and that's faux outcries of "RACISM!" What none of the mainstream media outlets will honestly say is that Trump's ban has nothing to do with racism, but only statistics from what Obama's administration researched and confirmed years ago:
As reported by KTLA5: "In December 2015, President Barack Obama signed into law a measure placing limited restrictions on certain travelers who had visited Iran, Iraq, Sudan, or Syria on or after March 1, 2011. Two months later, the Obama administration added Libya, Somalia, and Yemen to the list, in an effort, the administration said, to address “the growing threat from foreign terrorist fighters”.
Trump's White House Press Secretary, Sean Spicer pointed out that Obama's administration set the groundwork by fingering those seven countries for aiding and abetting terrorism, and producing more-than their equal share of terrorists:
“There were further travel restrictions already in place from those seven countries,” Spicer said on ABC’s “This Week.” “What the president did was take the first step through this executive order of insuring that we’re looking at the entire system of who’s coming in, refugees that are coming in, people who are coming in from places that have a history or that our intelligence suggests that we need to have further extreme vetting for.”
Of course, that's likely not the entire story, but it's a far-cry more than the "tens of thousands" of ignorant fools will ever know who are protesting Trump's "RACIST!" travel ban, but then again, that's what fake news is all about.
Unless our readers reside under rocks, they're no doubt aware of Michelle's woeful lament to Oprah that –– because Trump won –– “now we're feeling what not having hope feels like.” However, in the same interview, Michelle vowed on behalf of the Obamas: "We are going to be there for the next president and do whatever we have to do to make sure that he is successful, because if he succeeds, we all succeed."
We suggest that Michelle was being two-faced on both accounts, and that she and her hubby will do everything in their power to make certain that Trump's administration is "a failing pile of garbage" akin to theirs. Unless certain investigative sources are incorrect, President Obama is "setting up a legacy-protecting shadow government in D.C. for the specific purpose of derailing the Trump train, i.e., thwarting the policies of the incoming Donald Trump presidential administration".
We've come to trust the investigate reporting of Ed Klein, and despite this article in The Inquisitr suggesting that he may be playing things a bit "over-dramatically", we ask readers to keep an open mind while digesting his report:
"For the past 100 years every president who is outgoing has packed up his stuff gone home and not criticized his successor. This is not what the Obamas are planning to do. They rented an eight-bedroom mansion in the Kalorama section of Washington from Joe Lockhart, who was Bill Clinton’s last press secretary. In that house there’s enough room for Valerie Jarrett as well as Michelle and the kids. A place for ten cars to park. They are setting up what they are calling a shadow government."
"They are staying there because despite what the president said in his press conference, he’s in a sense of outrage over this incoming Trump Administration, which he thinks is going to wipe out his legacy. So he’s setting up this kind of almost insurgency; he’s picking people in foreign affairs, labor, abortion, union matters. He’s setting them up to start appearing on television, making speeches and doing op-ed pieces. For the next four years, you’re going to see not only a Trump Administration, but you’re going to see a shadow government opposing the Trump administration…"
If this sounds realistic to you, then you'd be in agreement with us, for it's become blatantly obvious that Obama's main impetus was to bring America to Her knees. He succeeded for the largest part, so it's easily assumed that he wishes to keep Her there, so we wish Trump the best of luck restoring America to Her former glory. And, we wish for the Obamas that karma will be their everlasting and eager companion.
Ex-Vice President Joe Biden used his final speech to global leaders (just before Donald Trump prepared to take office) to warn that the "liberal international world order" is at risk of collapse. We've had some serious laughs at Joe's expense, and his final address did not disappoint, for not only did we chuckle at his claim that -- because Trump won -- the "liberal world order" is in jeopardy, we guffawed at his worn-out adage that the top 1% are not paying their fair share, and they "needed to pay their fair share, or else". Standard unoriginal Joe Biden, but when he said there is a "palpable sense of uncertainty about the state of the world," and we need to ask ourselves, "What kind of world are we going to leave for our children?", we could only marvel: How could he ask that without being struck by lightening, since he partnered with Obama to destroy the future of America's coming generations? We'll miss Joe's whimsical idiotic 'Bidenisms, but not his liberal stupidity, and do so hope that the door knob hit him on the way out.
Urgent Global Warming Update for the First and Second Weeks of 2017: Record Cold across the U.S., 49 of 50 States with Snow and Ice on the ground.
After four winters of back-to-back record cold temps across the U.S. -- and 2017 promising more of the same -- global warming alarmists continue chanting that we're about to spontaneously combust.
According to them, 2016 capped off "the hottest year on record" for the third consecutive year, and we can expect 2017 to be even hotter.
However, for those of us whose feet remained firmly planted in reality (and on the ground), our freezing toes told us otherwise: Here's a list of record cold temps from the Summer of 2013, a map of 49 record colds set in one day on Jan. 7, 2014, more for 2015 when "Record Cold and Snow Destroyed Global Warming Claims", and bitter arctic air in 2016 set low-temp records across the continental U.S..
Although we at Frankly Conservative accept the fact that our earth's climate changed countless times over untold millions of years, we remain ultimately skeptical of claims that any of it was "man made". Regardless, we'll not treat harshly those true believes who've relied on findings by a "consensus of scientists", but we will offer them this caveat: Don't dispose of your winter clothing just yet:
100% of 'global warming' can be attributed to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration tampering with collected temperature data, both past and present: "Faced with the embarrassing fact that real-world temperature readings don’t show any U.S. warming during the past 80 years, the alarmists who oversee the collection and reporting of the data simply erase the actual readings and substitute their own desired readings in their place".
Global warming alarmists can present us all the charts and graphs they please, but we're putting stock in our frozen fingers and toes rather than their "consensus of scientists", and keeping our woodpiles high. In addition, we're holding onto our winter clothing.
LAUGH OF THE MONTH: Thirty-seven days after Trump's unquestionable Electoral College win of the Presidency, some Democrats still can't accept reality. Famous for her flamboyancy (and tilting at windmills), House Representative Sheila Jackson Lee (D-Tx) led a challenge by more than a dozen House Democrats to Donald Trump’s election, which collapsed "when they failed to convince a single Democratic senator to join their protest". Of course, Jackson Lee never expected the challenge to succeed, but she wasted lots of other congressional members' time -- and perhaps a few million taxpayer dollars in the process -- just so she could have some media face time, or as she put it: "It’s not going to have an impact on the outcome of the election. So, that’s not the point".
Before we begin, let's get this on the table: Right, wrong, or whatever, John McCain and Lindsay Graham should get over their case of "sour grapes" rather than siding with Democrats on this issue. If one believes the liberal mainstream media narrative of late, they'd conclude that the Russian government hacked into Democrat databases to tilt the election in Donald Trump's favor. Mainstream sources such as The New York Times report that "American intelligence agencies have concluded with “high confidence” that Russia acted covertly in the latter stages of the presidential campaign to harm Hillary Clinton’s chances and promote Donald J. Trump, according to senior administration officials".
However, if one believes more conservative news outlets, they'd likely question the mainstream media narrative, and perhaps conclude differently as reported by ZeroHedge: "During an interview on Aaron Klein’s Sunday radio program, former high-ranking NSA intelligence official-turned-whistleblower, William Binney, discussed the alleged Russian involvement in our elections, suggesting the cyber attack against the DNC may not have originated from the Russian government. Instead, Binney says, a "disgruntled U.S. intelligence worker” is likely behind the breach".
If our suspicions are true, the Democrats -- and now McCain and Graham -- are desperately attempting to find someone or some thing to blame for their own shortcomings rather than accept Trump's success -- Americans were sick of GOP RINOs and Obama's eight-year socialist experiment, and we voted for a 'yuge' change. In light of that, RINOs such as McCain and Graham should either retire or shut the hell up and show solidarity with their own party rather than cozying up with Democrats, but old habits are difficult to break.
Christmas came early for House Speaker Paul Ryan in the form of Nancy Pelosi beating back the challenge for her Democrat House Minority leadership. Despite the fact that Dems suffered historic losses of Congressional seats and state Governors under Pelosi's leadership in 2010, 2014, and 2016, her strong-arm tactics to stay in power prevailed. Paul Ryan, as the GOP's re-elected House Majority Leader, has much reason to celebrate the Democrats' maintaining of the status quo.
Writing for the liberal publication Salon, Mathew Sheffield titled his piece "No change needed: By selecting Pelosi, House Democrats think the party is just fine". In that article, Sheffield agrees with and parrots the main concern of Pelosi's defeated challenger, Tim Ryan of Ohio (not related to GOP Speaker, Paul Ryan). “If you take state and federal officials, Democratic officials, we have the smallest number since Reconstruction,” he said in a Nov. 18 interview on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe. If that’s not a call for doing something differently, I don’t know what is”.
Matt Laslo of the liberal Daily Beast maintains in his article titled "House Dems lose Big, Change Nothing As Pelosi is Re-Elected" that "After three straight losing seasons House Democrats just resigned their quarterback to another two year contract . . . Rank and file lawmakers fear the party establishment has learned nothing from the ascension of Trump - a case Republicans were more than happy to point out on Twitter and at the RNC where they recycled a 2010 “Fire Pelosi Banner” by turning the “F” into an “H”.
To ice the cake, Jeff Stein, writing for the uber liberal publication Vox woefully titled his article "Nancy Pelosi's victory shows House Democrats don't think they need to change to win", which bemoans the fact that "Pelosi’s victory today makes clear that a changing of the guard is not on the table. Many Democrats on the Hill don’t think they deserve blame for their party’s feeble state, and they think the Republican majority is about to embark on a path of political suicide. All of it confirms evidence of one growing sign of the post-election fallout: Despite its losses, the Democratic Party is not headed for a wholesale reinvention, because its leaders do not appear to believe they need one".
For all of this, we at Frankly Conservative rejoice, but then again, much of what will happen next relies on Republican House Speaker, Paul Ryan, who we hope will soon have an epiphany. We know this following information reaches well into the past, but he carries an "F" rating by conservatives for a good reason: He's voted for every bailout, TARP, No Child Left Behind, raising the debt ceiling, collaborated with Dems to raise taxes, etc. Unless Ryan readily accepts that Americans really voted as much for change as they did for Trump, Pelosi's plan to retake Congress by not changing anything will succeed 100 percent.
We were astounded November 9 -- one day after Hillary Clinton's humiliating defeat -- when Obama invited Trump to the White House to congratulate Donald and wish him well. According to Obama, "we now are going to want to do everything we can to help you succeed — because if you succeed, then the country succeeds".
In and of itself, playing nice wouldn't appear odd coming from a sitting president who loved America, but we know Obama for what he is: A pestilent child who spent eight years destroying our beloved country, and after his atrocities were soundly repudiated and encapsulated in Hillary's crushing loss, we knew he'd not go quietly into the night.
Case in point -- Trump may not be able to work in the Oval Office for over a year, since "President Obama is apparently refusing to renovate the Oval Office — and has instead decided to pass the buck to Donald Trump, who may be forced to work somewhere else for a quarter of his term as a result of the numerous security upgrades that will be going on inside the room".
Okay, even if we pass that off as petty vindictiveness, we can't miss Obama's Executive Action just days after the election that "blocks new oil drilling off California, West Coast through 2022", a real job-killing move intended to further cripple America's economic recovery.
Oh, and Obama attempted to worsen relations with the USSR by declaring that Trump must "take a tougher approach toward Russia, urging the president-elect to “stand up” to Moscow when it violates global norms". (Are we missing something, or is this the craven coward -- Obama -- who wimped-out after meeting Putin face-to-face in 2009, then scrapped the construction of missile defense shields to protected our allies? Yep, he's the one.)
Okay, here's our prediction: Obama will make Trump's transition as difficult as possible, but as far as playing nice, that's something that narcissistic liberals just cannot do. In light of that, look for the period leading up to Obama's official end-of-term (January 20) to be a rocky road for Trump, indeed. And, consider these first few stumbling blocks from Obama to be only the beginning.
As experience dictates, Obama is a pestilent narcissistic troublemaker, and as published by The Wall Street Journal, the "Republican's campaign was a referendum on the entirety of the president's record". We couldn't agree more, and although it's our opinion that Trump was a vastly-flawed candidate, we'll admit breathing a (temporary?) sigh of relief to wish him well. The notion of Hillary turning the U.S. Supreme Court into an activist Left-wing judicial arm of the Democrat party brought us fear and trepidation. We'll likewise confide that Hillary's promise to expand ObamaCare caused us many a sleepless night, so with all due respect to Trump supporters everywhere: Please forgive us should we hold Trump to his words should he renege on specific promises. Nothing would destroy America further and faster than a liberal Supreme Court, for whatever Dems couldn't legislate in Congress, they'd litigate all the way to our highest court. We could then kiss the U.S. Constitution goodbye, so it's incumbent upon us to remind Trump of his promise to nominate only constructionist jurists. And, he must repeal and replace ObamaCare to reverse it's adverse effect of turning America into a part-time working nation. Without question, there's much work to be done, and much to be undone, but meanwhile, we have only brief words for Obama and Hillary: Good riddance, and may karma be your everlasting companion.
READER DISCRETION IS ADVISED: Frequent visitors to this website know that vulgarity is kept to a minimum on these pages. However, with Democrats and liberals regularly accusing Republicans and conservatives of crossing common lines of moral decency and behavior, it's only fair that we point out a few of our accusers own peccadilloes. For starters, there's nothing that Madonna won’t do to make sure Hillary Clinton takes the White House come Election Day -- Madonna's taken her top off, arranged for her son to disembowel a Donald Trump piñata, and pledged to perform oral sex on every Clinton supporter at Amy Schumer’s comedy show: “If you vote for Hillary Clinton, I will give you a blow job — and I am good. I'm not a douche. I’m not a tool. I take my time,” she continued, much to the displeasure of any of her children who have internet access. “I have ... eye contact and I do swallow.” Fair enough -- we admit that's more information than the average reader needs in order to determine that liberals 'suck', but we're only trying to make a point: Does anyone know of any Trump supporter of celebrity status that even remotely matches the sleaze of Madonna? Okay, there was David Duke, the former KKK Grand Wizard who endorsed Trump, and liberals demanded that Trump denounce Duke, which Trump did, but did anyone demand that Hillary denounce Madonna? No, and here's another piece of celebrity filth supporting Clinton: Miley Cyrus (who's been known to do some disgusting things such as performing topless while wearing a prosthetic penis) has volunteered to appear in Virginia on behalf of Hillary Clinton. Though Cyrus supported Sen. Bernie Sanders in the Democrat primaries, she recently said persons who weren't planning to vote for Hillary are "f---ing crazy". Regardless, Cyrus promised to go "door to door" in her quest to boost Clinton support, but we wonder if she'll do it topless while wearing her plastic penis. Perhaps this is an adequate jumping-off spot, for we feel that our point is made: Democrats demand that Republicans denounce unsavory supporters, but for Democrats, gutter rats are A-okay.
Environmentalists blame increased greenhouse gasses on myriad things, and one of their favorite bogeymen is the adorable bovine for producing methane through flatulence and manure. Quite humorously, persons driven by an imaginary ability to stop climate change cheered California's Democrat Governor, Jerry Brown, for signing legislation ordering cattle farmers to control their herd's farting and pooping: "Under a bill signed Monday by Democratic Governor Jerry Brown, the state will cut emissions of methane from dairy cows and other animals by 40 percent . . . It would also require the state's dairy industry, which produces 20 percent of the country's milk, to find a way to reduce methane produced by cow flatulence and manure. One technology for doing that is known as a methane digester . . . Such equipment is expensive, however, which worries the state's dairy farmers ".
Of course, common sense dictates that cows will be cows, and this scenario sets the stage for dairy farmers to fail, thus making them subject to huge fines. So let's call Gov. Brown's bill what it really is -- a steaming pile of bull intended to raise revenue for California, but as usual, this state's legislature is once again shortsighted: Either way, dairy farmers who are heavily fined and/or attempt to comply by purchasing expensive "digesters" might be forced out of business, because they cannot raise the price of milk to compensate for their losses:"The price of milk, on the other hand, is decided by [federal] regulators, using complicated formulas. They set one price for wholesale milk used to produce "fluid" products and another for milk used in making cheese. It's a ridiculous game of catch-up, in which the regulated prices never change as fast and efficiently as they would in a market, one buyer and seller at a time".
How horrible must their committed crimes need to be before ICE puts illegal aliens behind bars? In 2015, ICE freed 19,723 criminal aliens who had a total of 64,197 criminal convictions among them, including 8,234 violent convictions, 208 homicide convictions, 320 sexual assaults, and 216 kidnappings. Please try to understand -- ICE obeyed Obama's rule-of-thumb in these matters, and even if some illegals are deported and return illegally, then caught committing new crimes in our country, chances are excellent they'll just be deported again or released. Liberals often scoff at our premise that this occurs again and again and again, so in our defense, we'll offer excerpts from this Sept. 7, 2016 story from Austin, Texas:
"U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement said a man accused of serial rape in the Austin area was deported five times before his most recent arrest in August. Nicodemo Coria-Gonzales faces six charges including aggravated sexual assault and kidnapping. In one case, a victim told police he poured gasoline on her and tried to set her on fire . . . If the allegations against him are true, Nicodemo Coria-Gonzalez illegally immigrated to the United States six times and then sexually abused several women . . . ICE said Coria-Gonzales was previously convicted of criminal charges including three charges of driving while intoxicated. After each conviction he was extradited to Mexico".
How many years would an American citizen serve for multiple crimes of habitual DUI, serial rape, aggravated sexual assault and kidnapping? You got it -- he'd likely never make bond before spending twenty-plus years in prison, but for illegals, Obama made it 'sunshine, lollipops and rainbows everywhere'. Most egregious, no matter how horrible Coria-Gonzalez's crimes were, there's no guarantee that some liberal immigration judge won't again save his bacon. After all, what are the odds he'd come back a seventh time to drive on our highways in a drunken stupor, rape, sexually assault, kidnap and try setting his victims on fire? One-hundred percent.
It's now official: According to the Congressional Budget Office, The Affordable Care act failed miserably to deliver on its ultimate promise: Making sure that more people had health insurance. Based on the CBO's best estimates -- and using its own collected data, Obamacare has actually reduced the number of people with private health insurance. But how bad is it?
"It would appear that a net 9 million people have lost their private health plans, thanks to Obamacare—with a net 5 million people having lost employer-based plans and a net 4 million people having lost individually purchased plans".
We'd like to point out that the CBO has grossly underestimated ObamaCare's shortcomings in each of its subsequent reports, which likely indicates that they've widely missed the mark again regarding how bad it truly is.
Not only that, ObamaCare's costing taxpayers far more than the CBO's ever projected -- $136 billion more than the scorekeeper previously expected over the next ten years. And most disturbing, not only are persons with private insurance seeing an ever increasing rise in premiums, ObamaCare enrollees are seeing the cost of coverage increase dramatically. So much for "The Affordable Care Act" being affordable, or for making sure more Americans have coverage.
We at Frankly Conservative aren't members of any Tea Party group, because we enjoy avidly endorsing certain political candidates (a limitation of their 501(c)(3) non-profit status). Still, there's no reason we can't endorse the Tea Party and show our support, and if one wishes to explore locations of Tea Parties on a national level, please visit http://www.teapartypatriots.org/groups/.
How does one frame sick irony? By shouting "Black lives matter" while wearing a Planned Parenthood shirt. We've gotta' hand it to the people in this picture: If hypocrisy could be summed up in one photo, this one's in the top ten. Before somebody calls us racists for pointing out their stupidity, there would be lots more blacks populating this planet if it weren't for Planned Parenthood. Here's the statistics: Black women account for only 6.6 percent of the U.S. population, yet account for 35.7 percent of abortions. For those who wish to watch these hypocritical jackasses make fools of themselves, here's the video.
Obama: Don't blame ISIS for being violent: They're just reacting impulsively to the devastating effects of man-made global warming. In an attempt to disguise his ineptness in foreign policy and a complete lack of desire to defend our county, Obama limped-out the lamest of excuses for not calling ISIS and its kin terrorists: "The White House called climate change a top national security issue in its National Security Strategy released Friday [Jan. 6, 2015], linking a warming planet to increased extremism and violent conflicts." Oh, we wish this was satire, but unfortunately, it's the sad truth, and our Coward in Chief has become the laughing stock of terrorist groups world-wide. While Obama attempts to use fictitious man-made global warming to mislabel terrorist as anti-global warming activists, we at Frankly Conservative can only feel disgust for the President.
We didn't Photoshop either image, because they illustrate one point: We're a nation of immigrants, but immigrants from decades past asked for little, except the chance to become productive citizens and assimilate into society. When today's Latino activists battle against English being taught as the primary language in our public schools, and 57% of illegals don't need to work because they're collecting welfare, an argument supporting amnesty that includes "we are a nation of immigrants" fails miserably, for there is no comparison.
Funny how Washington works: When Democrats controlled both chambers of Congress and the White House in 2008, it was: "We won, you lost, get over it". They shut Republicans out of writing ObamaCare and passed it without one single Republican vote, and when the GOP regained the U.S. House in 2010, Harry Reid made sure that conservative legislation from the House always died in his Democrat controlled Senate. Then in 2014, American voters spoke loud and clear against these shenanigans, but Harry Reid still tried to pin gridlock in D.C. on the GOP by saying this: "The message from voters is clear: They want us to work together." Oh, if one reads between the lines, Harry just implied that Congressional stalemate was the Republican's fault all along and they'd best do what Reid said. Too much.
No liberals running for office wanted the President anywhere near them in 2014, since his signature achievement of health-care reform is the most universally hated piece of legislation in America's history. Adding that to his mishandling of ISIS, a spineless lack of response to Benghazi, opening the border to illegals, and his jobless "recovery", he keeps telling us that the economy is doing fine. If those things weren't enough to insult American IQ's, he recently overdid himself by claiming that our country is better off in nearly every way because he's president. Nancy Pelosi's spewed stupid nonsense as usual, but cranked it up a notch by stating that a Republican controlled Senate would mean the end of civilization. Harry Reid stated falsehoods about Republicans, and that they were trying to buy Senate seats, when in fact, Reid attempted to do precisely that. We at Frankly Conservative have never seen more cowardice, stupidity, and lying in Congressional and Presidential leadership than these three exhibit, and we can barely wait to see them relegated to the scrap heap of history.
Nancy needs some air fresheners after passing that bomb. Not only has ObamaCare killed millions of insurance policies, it's killing millions of jobs as well. How many? 2.5 million per year. Plunge harder!
