Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s new Medicare for All plan proves P.J. O’Rourke was right: If you think health care’s expensive now, just wait ’til it’s free.
Never mind expensive, Warren’s plan isn’t even workable. It would bury America in historic new taxes, leave health providers scrambling and likely push budget deficits to peacetime-records.
Start with the chutzpah of a politician and her team of elite college professors spending three weeks redesigning a fifth of the US economy.
Six years ago, Washington failed to design a functioning ObamaCare Web site, but now the best and brightest are going to shepherd 330 million Americans into a top-down, centrally planned health system. Hey, what could go wrong? Read the rest HERE.
‘Coup has started,’ whistleblower’s attorney said in 2017 posts calling for impeachment
Mark Zaid, one of the attorneys representing the intelligence community whistleblower at the center of the Democrats’ ongoing impeachment inquiry, tweeted conspicuously in January 2017 that a “coup has started” and that “impeachment will follow ultimately.”
Then, in July 2017, Zaid remarked, “I predict @CNN will play a key role in @realDonaldTrump not finishing out his full term as president.” Also that month, Zaid tweeted, “We will get rid of him, and this country is strong enough to survive even him and his supporters.”
Amid a slew of impeachment-related posts, Zaid assured his Twitter followers that “as one falls, two more will take their place,” apparently referring to Trump administration employees who defy the White House. Zaid promised that the “coup” would occur in “many steps.” Read the rest including Mark Zaid’s tweets HERE.
CHARLOTTE, NC – To paraphrase Forrest Gump, “Crazy is as crazy does.” As we watch the increasingly frantic anti-Trump antics on Capitol Hill, we can clearly see that the donkeys ruling the house couldn’t be any crazier. But come this time next year, the Democrats will stop singing their “Impeachment Donkey Serenade” as an already exhausting Campaign 2020 finally concludes.
At that point, they’ll take an entire day off from making total and complete asses of themselves to pull the predictable levers on their one-armed bandit voting machines. Later that evening, they’ll watch their friends at CNN to see whether their four-year anti-Trump fake national crisis gamble actually paid off.
Come to think about it, for the Dems to only take one day off would be something short of a miracle.
Truth be told, they haven’t done a day’s honest work for their constituents in three years. So why not go for four and make it a clean sweep? Read the rest HERE.
A huge majority of Hispanic voters in Florida support mandatory E-Verify to ban employers from hiring illegal aliens and Gov. Ron DeSantis after he outlawed sanctuary cities across the state.
A new poll by the University of North Florida finds that 82 percent of Hispanic voters in Florida approve of the job DeSantis is doing as governor, along with 72 percent of all Florida voters. Only eight percent of Hispanics said they disapproved of DeSantis.
This indicates that DeSantis is more popular among Hispanics than he is with white Floridians, who support him by a majority of 76 percent. DeSantis’s popularity with Hispanic Floridians comes after he outlawed sanctuary cities in the state, a move that was opposed by the open borders lobby. Read the rest HERE.

The chairman of the Democratic National Committee (DNC) tried to change the subject when he was asked on Spanish-language TV about Latino gains in President Donald Trump’s economy.
The host, Patricia Janiot, said, “Mr. Perez, President Trump has achieved something important, especially for Latinos, which is to reduce the unemployment rate to historic lows. How then can the Democrats compete with a president that has been beneficial to Latinos on economic matters?”
“The economic situation in the United States is excellent for the wealthy like Trump,” Tom Perez replied. “But the economic situation is still bad for our community, and that’s why we have to elect Democrats.” Read the rest HERE.
The Trump administration announced on Monday that it was officially withdrawing from the Paris Climate Accord, with the withdrawal officially set to be completed one year from now.
“President Trump made the decision to withdraw from the Paris Agreement because of the unfair economic burden imposed on American workers, businesses, and taxpayers by U.S. pledges made under the Agreement,” Secretary of State Mike Pompeo wrote in a statement. “The United States has reduced all types of emissions, even as we grow our economy and ensure our citizens’ access to affordable energy.” Read the rest HERE.
Like the garbage French elite of long ago, our American garbage elite of today has learned nothing and forgotten nothing. For four years, it has been focused entirely on deep sixing Donald Trump for his unforgivable crime of demanding that our ruling caste be held accountable for its legacy of failure. Instead of focusing on not being terrible at their job of running America’s institutions, our elitists have decided that the real problem is us Normals being angry about how they are terrible at their job of running America’s institutions. So, let’s imagine that they finally vanquish Trump, though every time they come up against him they end up dragging themselves home like Ned Beatty after a particularly tough canoe trip.
What happens then?
What happens then is that it’s back to business as usual, and for decades, business as usual for our garbage elite has not merely been running our institutions badly but pillaging and looting our country for power, prestige and cash.
The difference is that in the future they will be much more careful to ensure that no one who is not in on the scam will ever again come anywhere near the levers of power. You can already see it – the demands that we defer to the bureaucrats they own, the attacks on the idea of free expression, and the campaign to disarm us. Their objective is no more Trumps, just an endless line of progressive would-be Maduros with the march toward despair occasionally put on pause for a term by some Fredocon Republican who hates us Normals just as much as the Dems, but won’t admit it until after he’s out of office.

California Gov. Gavin Newsom railed against the state’s public utility company for blacking out large portions of the state, but some experts say regulators are partially to blame.
Regulators in the state are too preoccupied with solar panels, climate change and keeping customers’ rates low to update old transmission lines that can create wildfires, experts say.
Newsom, a Democrat, says he is considering taking over the utility company if it cannot get its finances together.
California Gov. Gavin Newsom and other critics are blasting the public utility company responsible for rolling blackouts, but some experts argue regulators’ obsession with climate change is partially to blame. Read the rest HERE.
