Kimmel's Woeful Ignorance About Americans' Rights
by Culture Beat:  Whether leftist politicians and the Leftmedia admit it or not, liar-nObamaCare stinks. It has not done what Barack liar-nObama and Democrats all claimed that it would. Where is the more affordable health insurance? What happened to health care becoming more accessible? Where is the $2,500 in annual health insurance savings promised to American families? What of all those old insurance coverage plans Americans were supposed to be able to keep? And the guarantee that Americans could keep their doctors — boy was that a dozy. But rather than admit that the law has been and is a growing failure, Democrats and their cohorts in the media have pivoted and focused blame for the law’s failure on Republicans who are fighting to repeal it. This is akin to arguing that the reason a student failed his math test was because the teacher didn’t like his answers. In other words, Democrats seek to remove objectivity in favor of emotion-based subjectivity.

          Health care policy expert Late-night comedian Jimmy Kimmel typified this mindset recently on his show when he decided to launch into another political rant against Senate Republicans for their latest attempt at an liar-nObamaCare makeover. This is not new for Kimmel, but this time he specifically targeted Louisiana Sen. Bill Cassidy, who had previously been a guest on the show, saying that Cassidy had “lied right to my face” about his health care reform plan. Kimmel then laid out “facts” that were essentially talking points taken straight from the Democrats’ “Trump resistance” playbook. It was despicable for Kimmel to turn Cassidy’s good faith appearance and promise into a bludgeon, but that’s typical leftist behavior.
          Remember, Kimmel once hosted a program called the “Man Show,” which consisted of little more than the sophomoric promotion and promulgation of misogynistic stereotypes. And this is the guy who has taken it upon himself to lecture America on morality? Please excuse our consternation. To be fair, Kimmel does have personal experience with a child who needed significant special medical attention. And the fact that he lives in a country with cutting edge medicine should be something he is thankful for. But Kimmel’s problem is that he fundamentally does not understand the difference between rights and entitlements.
          In a free society, an individual has the right to seek after a service such as health care. That same individual does not have the right to demand that the service be rendered or that other people be forced to pay for it. It’s the seeking that is the right, not the obtaining. It’s the whole “pursuit of Happiness” bit espoused by the Declaration of Independence. Democrats and the Left have long conflated these two separate and distinct concepts.
          What if we were to apply to the Second Amendment the same concept of “rights” Democrats apply to health care? Americans everywhere would be demanding that the government provide them with a firearm. But it wouldn’t stop there. The government would also be obligated to provide the ammunition necessary for the operation of the firearm, as well as holsters, cases, cleaning kits and so on. What about those Americans who might object to owning a firearm? Would they be forced to accept or pay taxes for others to be guaranteed the right of bearing arms? By Jimmy Kimmel’s logic, yes. But something tells us that “logic” doesn’t apply across the board. No, it only applies when a millionaire misogynist playboy can lecture the rest of us on his pet issue.  ~The Patriot Post

Gorka – Supporting Trump Means 
Opposing McConnell Swamp Rat He Endorsed
{rickwells.us} ~ It’s hard to imagine that Bret Baier, who has his own news program on Fox, doesn’t understand the difference between the typical Russian political mischief... the same kind that the CIA are experts at conducting, and the Russia, Russia, Russia Democrat witch hunt. Dr. Sebastian Gorka explained the distinction to Baier who seemed to genuinely not understand the situation. Gorka describes being told by President Trump in the Oval Office that they will not find any Russian connection to me because there isn’t any.” Gorka says, “That’s just hyperbole. That’s liar-Clinton – Podesta, the left-wing media, unable to digest that fact that they lost the election when the New York Times said liar-Hillary was a shoo-in at 92% on the day of the election.” He says, “There’s the other issue of decades and decades and decades of Russian activities in democracies like America’s.”... https://rickwells.us/gorka-supporting-trump-means-opposing-mcconnel...

The Missouri Governor Just Made 
A Statement That Terrified Every Looter
{greatamericandaily.com} ~ For the last few days, violent looters have ravaged storefronts across St. Louis, Missouri. Draped in masks, they seem to think they’re invincible... But one thing the Missouri Governor just said is sure to send a chill down their spines. In response to a judge acquitting former St. Louis police officer Jason Stockley of murder charges, protests and riots broke out. Following the violence in neighboring Ferguson just years before, it wasn’t much of a surprise to law enforcement. The police showed up fully prepared to enforce the law, and have made over 80 arrests since the violence started. Despite the strong police presence, scenes of masked thugs looting storefronts have been widely circulated...  http://greatamericandaily.com/the-missouri-governor-just-made-a-sta...

Oregon Dems Push Phony Precedent 
To Block Ninth Circuit Court Nominee
by Brent Scher
{freebeacon.com} ~ Oregon's two Democratic senators are blocking one of President Trump's judicial nominees with claims that a "longstanding" state tradition mandating that nominees be chosen from their "judicial selection committee" was violated... but the tradition they cite has never applied to picks for the U.S. Circuit Court, according to records viewed by the Washington Free Beacon. Sens. Ron Wyden and Jeff Merkley alerted the White House that they would be blocking the nomination of Oregon native Ryan Bounds for a seat on the U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit. Bounds is currently serving as assistant U.S. Attorney for the District of Oregon. "We cannot return a blue slip on any judicial nominee that has not been approved by our bipartisan judicial selection committee," the senators wrote in a letter to the White House referencing the informal "blue slip" process by which senators are able to block nominations of judges from their home state...  http://freebeacon.com/issues/oregon-dems-push-phony-precedent-to-bl...

Viktor Orban Calls 
George Soros a ‘Public Enemy’

{pamelageller.com} ~ Hungary’s prime minister, Viktor Orban, called out George Soros on the public platform as an “enemy” of the people... a bold statement made in the lead-up to the country’s campaign to investigate just what the billionaire philanthropist has been doing to influence policy of late. Specifically, Hungary’s about to kick off another “national consultation” about Soros. And this investigation comes just six months before national elections... https://pamelageller.com/2017/09/viktor-orban-calls-george-soros-pu...

TRUMP Urges Americans – Turn TV OFF, 
Get Up And WALK OUT Of NFL Games
{rickwells.us} ~ President Trump made a most distasteful and disingenuous appeal for the voters of Alabama to cast their ballots in favor of one of the very swamp creatures he promised to get rid of... their fill-in Senator for the vacated seat of Jeff Sessions. After urging support for McConnell’s male prostitute Luther Strange, President Trump attempted to soothe the collective gag reflex among Alabama conservatives by reaffirming his belief in traditional American values. Whatever President Trump’s reason for being in league with the poster child of Republican establishment corruption, Mitch McConnell, supporting his efforts to defeat Judge Roy Moore in favor of a swamp rat, he’s telling us it’s not because he abandoned his base...   https://rickwells.us/trump-turn-off-walk-out-nfl/

THE MYTH OF BI-PARTISANSHIP
by Burt Prelutsky


I’m not sure what to make of Donald Trump’s reaching out to the Democrats by cozying up to Chuck clown-Schumer and Nancy Pulosi. Perhaps he’s just looking for dinner companions who despise the congressional Republicans as much as he does.

What I do know is that he should be afraid, very afraid, when the left-wing pundits start to compliment him, suggesting he’s becoming more presidential. So long as they’re writing about Republicans, the media will always promote bi-partisanship as the ideal. But you’ll notice that it’s never an approach they encourage Democrats to adopt.

As you will all remember, in 2008, the NY Times proclaimed RINO-John McCain a statesman.  After all, he had spent most of his time in the Senate reaching across the aisle. Generally with his lips puckered up, so he could kiss the behinds of such liberal icons as Ted Kennedy, Robert Byrd and Russ Feingold.

Taking its lead from the Times, the mass media propped up RINO-McCain’s ego by constantly referring to him as a maverick. However, if a Democratic senator had behaved in such a callow manner, signing on as a co-author of conservative legislation, the paper would have condemned him as an opportunistic turncoat.

Naturally, as soon as RINO-McCain garnered the GOP nomination, the media resorted to dismissing him as the political hack he always was and would forever remain. It happened so quickly, I was surprised that RINO-McCain didn’t suffer a terminal case of whiplash.

President Trump would also do well to remember that Tip O’Neill and the Democrats promised Ronald Reagan that they’d build him his wall if only he’d sign the 1986 amnesty.

In much the same way, the Democrats promised Nixon to continue to support South Vietnam with funds and weaponry if he’d agree to pull our troops out of harm’s way.

What Trump should understand, although now that Steve Bannon has been banished, I’m not sure that there is anybody in the White House to remind him, is that the Democrats don’t just lie occasionally; they do it constantly. Sometimes, it appears they don’t even lie to achieve the political ends they seek, but simply to stay in practice.

In a way, liberals are so obvious, it should be easy to deal with them, just as it’s easy to win at the poker table if the other players are always scratching their noses or drumming their fingers when they’re holding a flush or a full house.  Unfortunately, congressional Republicans are so stupid the other side doesn’t even need to look for tells; they merely have to ask the likes of Mitch McConnell and Paul Ryan what cards they’re holding. And, as we’ve seen the GOP fail time and again to repeal liar-nObamaCare, it’s obvious the poor suckers don’t even have a pair of deuces, merely a deck full of jokers.

Although it goes against my grain to defend the House and Senate Republicans, honesty compels me to admit they’re often playing a bad hand because the dealer, which is to say the media, is cheating.

Consider, if you will, the way the media has made a habit of setting up Trump to fail, as it did when they foresaw his inability to deal with the hurricanes in Texas and Florida. In the run-up to the disasters, it was as if it were Trump, not Mother Nature, who was behind the calamities.

However, no sooner had Trump showed he was up to the task, even contributing a great deal of his own money to the relief fund, then the media moved on, unwilling even to grant that he had carried out his responsibilities in admirable fashion.

What I don’t get is why the folks at the NY Times, the Washington Post, ABC, NBC and CBS, seem to believe that their function is to serve as propagandists for socialism. After all, what has socialism ever done for them?

It seems obvious to me that they would be far more successful if they adopted neutrality, embracing facts over partisanship. I understand that there is a niche audience for those who believe that liberalism is always right, just as there are conservatives who are equally convinced their side has all the answers. Of course, I understand it, being, as I am, one of the latter. But I don’t pretend to be an objective reporter. I don’t have as my motto, as does the pompous, self-congratulatory, NY Times: “All the News That’s Fit to Print.”

If I felt the need to have one, it would probably be: “All the Buffoons Who Cry Out to Be Ridiculed.”

● Speaking of which, I used to wonder where they rounded up the studio audiences for the shows hosted by the likes of Bill Maher, Stephen Colbert and Jon Stewart, who regularly break into laughter and endless applause, inspired by nothing more than insipid insults directed at Republicans.

Now I’m wondering how they went about hiring the panelists for a show called “The View.” I mean, compared to Joy Behar, the resident yenta in the group, Maher, Colbert and Stewart, might be mistaken for the reincarnations of Mark Twain, Oscar Wilde and George Bernard Shaw.

On a recent episode, the father-daughter team of Mike Huckabee and Sarah Huckabee Sanders, decided for some unfathomable reason -- perhaps sins in their former lives -- to make a joint appearance.

Ms. Behar opened the session of the kangaroo court by asking Mrs. Sanders how she could bring herself to defend Donald Trump “who lies 95% of the time,” and then asked Governor Huckabee how he could allow his daughter to defend a known misogynist.

Even if one were a liberal and accepted the nonsense about Trump’s lies, wouldn’t you think the ardent feminists who populate “The View” would have called her out for asking the father how he could permit his daughter, who happens to be a 35-year-old fully-functioning adult, to act as the Press Secretary to the President of the United States?

I mean, I realize that Joy Behar is nearly as stupid as Maxine Waters, but wouldn’t you expect that one of her equally vapid colleagues might have turned to her, tapped her on the noggin and asked: “Is anybody home? What is he supposed to do? Ground her? Take away her TV privileges? Not allow her to attend the prom?”

But I guess expecting left-wing loons to at least be a tiny bit logical or even consistent is asking for the moon.

● Speaking of liberals, my friend, John Arazan, reminded me in the aftermath of the looting that took place in Fort Lauderdale that it was black comic Chris Rock who observed: “If you want to keep your money safe from black burglars and looters, hide it in a book. Books are like Kryptonite to them,” except in place of “them,” he used in this instance the totally appropriate N-word.

● One of my other friends, Art Hershey, passed along a list of interesting facts about our Presidents.

For instance, John Tyler had 15 children. One has to admire a man who creates his very own voting bloc.

As sheriff of Erie County, N.Y., Grover Cleveland twice had to spring the trap at a hanging. This earned him the nickname “Buffalo Hangman.” I suspect that when Trump glances over at Capitol Hill and watches Mitch McConnell and Paul Ryan make a hash of his agenda, he longs to be known as the “Washington Hangman.”

Calvin Coolidge occasionally pressed all the buttons in the Oval Office, sending bells ringing throughout the White House, and then hid. He wanted to see who was working. Such an act would prove no such thing. It would only indicate if any of his aides were deaf. I prefer to think that Coolidge was merely disproving the common misperception that he lacked a sense of humor. It may have been of the juvenile variety, but at least he had one.

Barack liar-nObama’s nickname on his high school basketball team was “Barry O’Bomber.” That’s what he says.  It’s obvious that they called him “O’Bummer,” but once he was in the White House and had the power to sic the IRS on his enemies, nobody had the nerve to set the record straight.

Jimmy Carter reported a UFO sighting in 1973, calling it “the darndest thing I’ve ever seen.” Others have made similar comments after seeing Jimmy Carter in the Oval Office.

Andrew Jackson was involved in nearly one hundred duels, usually to defend his wife’s honor. One hundred?! My word, that woman must have gotten around more than a flu epidemic. I’m reminded of a line of Groucho’s, referring to Margaret Dumont, in one of the Marx Brothers movies: “He fought to defend his wife’s honor …. which is more than she ever did!”
