Kathy griffin sez...

Oops.

Secret Service statement addressing Kathy Griffin photo



Looks like she is going to get a visit.

Sen. Al Franken stands by Kathy Griffin - refuses to cancel event with her July 7th.




Time to make calls and fire off letters, folks.





Edited to link to a video that hasn't been hidden.




Squatty Potty, whose mascot is a pooping unicorn, cuts all ties with Kathy Griffin

On edit: The name of the company mascott is Dookie the pooping unicorn. When you've lost dookie, you know you're in trouble.

Watch joy reid get destroyed, and lie to America.



Watch her stumble when Strassel brings up the NSA. You can see it in her eyes, you can hear it in her voice. She knows about it and she's lying. Everyone in washington knows about it, and so does everyone in the media.

Griffin is trying to apologize now, folks.

Lets discuss the current atmosphere.

This attempted apology by her, would NOT have happened had she done this to Trump under the atmosphere that existed during the previous administration.

The times, they are a changin' folks, and all of the above make me smile.

Was Obama administration illegal spying worse than Watergate?

Was Obama administration illegal spying worse than Watergate?

Glenn Harlan Reynolds, Opinion columnist Published 10:24 a.m. ET May 30, 2017 | Updated 3 hours ago

The Obama administration's illegal spying may have been worse than Watergate.

In 1972, some employees of President Nixon’s re-election committee were caught when they broke into the Democratic National Committee headquarters to plant a bug. This led to Nixon’s resignation and probably would have led to his felony prosecution had he not been pardoned by his successor, Gerald Ford.

But if a single bugging of the political opposition is enough to bring down a presidency — and maybe lead to an unprecedented criminal prosecution of a former president — then what are we to make of the recently unveiled Obama administration program of massively spying on political opponents in violation of clearly established law?

Because that’s what was unveiled last week.

The light is going to be shined very brightly on 'the chicago way'.

Illegals demand subsidized healthcare, housing from Columbia

Illegals demand subsidized healthcare, housing from Columbia

Toni Airaksinen
New York Campus Correspondent

Illegal immigrants at Columbia University are demanding free health coverage along with mandatory “sensitivity training” for professors and staff.

“We refuse to amend or change any of these demands,” the group UndoCU began their 13-point list. “We expect the university to act,” they said, lamenting Columbia’s “lack of intrinsic interest in its students.

One of the more audacious demands calls for “full reimbursement of the health insurance fees,” complaining that the university’s International Students and Scholars Office only refunds “portions of these fees.”

Columbia requires all students to be covered by health care while enrolled, which costs roughly $3,000 per year in addition to co-pays and deductibles.

UndoCU also demands “specialized fundraising for undocumented students,” in order to create “undocumented studentspecific scholarships and grants” for illegal immigrant students at both the graduate and undergraduate levels.

“Needbased funding must be available for undocumented students at all Columbia University and affiliate schools,” the ultimatum continues, referring to affiliates such as Barnard College and Union Theological Seminary.

Upset at the use of the term “illegal,” the group also demands “sensitivity training” for professors and staff at Columbia, as well as an ombudsman “who understands the psychological, financial, administrative, and all other dimensions” of the illegal immigrant experience.

“Much like sexual health training, it is imperative that immigration subjects be treated with the proper language and information,” the document insists. “It is unacceptable for students to be called ‘illegal’ in their own classrooms or for professors to tell us to ‘get legal.’”

The group also wants illegal immigrant students to be designated as domestic students, saying their current status as international students could expose their personal information to the Department of Homeland Security, and making a special point of demanding reimbursement for the $70 international student fees they have already paid.

The students also want Columbia to provide them with guaranteed summer housing, which they imply should be at least partially subsidized, along with hiring “counselors trained in trauma” and career advisors trained to help illegal immigrant students.

While they accuse the administration of “inaction” in the face of “national and federal forces,” Columbia has in fact taken numerous step to support illegal immigrant students.

The school devotes an entire page on its website to listing the resources it offers for such students, noting that it has designated a liaison between undocumented students and the administration, arranged pro-bono legal representation, and even provides support from Counseling and Psychological Services.

UndoCU, otherwise known as the Undocumented Students Initiative, was created just prior to Donald Trump’s election, which the group’s supporters did not take well, flooding the page with hyperbolic lamentations on election night and immediately after.

UndoCU did not respond to a request for comment from Campus Reform, and a spokesperson for Columbia declined to speak on the record.

Snip.

Any comment, left leaners? Do you support them?

Words can not express the gratitude owed to those who we remember today.

We owe those who gave all a debt we can never repay. The closest we can come is to honor their sacrifices by protecting and preserving the things they fought and died for, and keep them, their sarcifices, and reasons they made them in our hearts and minds as we barbecue, play with the kids, pet the dog, or any of a plethora of things we take for granted, all of which they sacrificed the ability to do, on our behalf.

I wont say "Thank you". It seems poor and inadequate.

I will just say that words are inadequate to the gratitude we owe, and that we should never forget.





Democrats' single-payer health-care dream just became a nightmare

http://www.cnbc.com/2017/05/24/california-proves-single-payer-health-care-is-too-expensive-commentary.html

A new study by the California State Senate shows that single payer health care would cost more than the entire current state budget.

That means everything else that Californians want from their government would have to take a backseat to health care.

Hopefully, this report will start to make our national health care debate more economically realistic.

Maybe we should rename so-called single payer health care and call it "single slayer."

Because as the politicians in California just found out, providing government paid-for health care isn't just expensive, it's more expensive than everything else... combined.

That's what a new study done by California's state senate determined this week. Here are the very ugly numbers:

The annual price tag for single payer health care in the Golden State would be a whopping $400 billion.
The total amount of money allocated for the California state budget for the coming fiscal year is $179.5 billion
TILT!
Okay, that "TILT!" part wasn't officially a mathematical or economic term. But you get the idea. Even with the $200 billion California currently gets from federal and other sources for its health costs, the state would still have to more than double its entire budget to cover the additional costs of providing universal health care.

The study tried to be a bit more optimistic, noting that private employers currently pay between $100 and $150 billion per year to provide health insurance for their workers and hypothesizing that money "could" be made available to the single payer plan. But that assumes those employers and employees would be okay with choosing a government-run option instead of their private insurance.

Yeah, none of that is going to work.

The good news is that this study wasn't conducted by some right wing or libertarian group, but the Democrat super majority controlled California state legislature. And that means the harsh realities of what it costs to provide this long-held dream of the liberal Democrats in America can finally start being debunked in favor of more workable options.

Snip.


It is a long read, and none of it good news for single payer supporters.
