GOP Takes Step To Free Americans 

From liar-nObama Socialism Mandate

by rickwells.us

{rickwells.us} ~ Senate Republicans are far from perfect and many, if not most of them, are part of the problem with the DC Swamp... They did, however, on Friday, do something no globalist Democrat would ever consider doing. They voted against wealth redistribution. In passing the Senate tax bill, the liar-nObamacare individual mandate was eliminated. The decree by our former foreign-born emperor that those of us who didn’t opt in for their overpriced, largely useless and unsustainable health care plan were to be turned upside down, vigorously shaken and the contents of our pockets, including our wallets, confiscated, will be no more...  https://rickwells.us/gop-obama-socialism-mandate/

Trump should Pardon Flynn,

Sessions should Fire Mueller and then Resign

by Michael P. Rethman

{ipatriot.com} ~ General Michael Flynn served honorably in the U.S. Army rising to become a 3-star general and head the Defense Intelligence Agency... Unfortunately for Flynn, he found the sewer that is DC to his liking – where it’s seemingly okay to be hired by foreign governments who seek to alter U.S. policy. Yet despite its questionable ethics, what Flynn did for Turkey isn’t illegal. Instead, Flynn’s major mistake was naively supporting Donald J. Trump’s campaign for President. This was tantamount to painting a target on his own back in the waning days of the corrupt liar-nObama Administration... http://ipatriot.com/trump-pardon-flynn-sessions-fire-mueller-resign/

Georgia Copyrighted Its Own Laws. Now,

It’s Suing a Nonprofit Group for Publishing Them.

by Amy Swearer

{dailysignal.com} ~ The state of Georgia has one, and only one, official set of laws: the Official Code of Georgia Annotated... There’s just one tiny problem for Georgia citizens who wish to know exactly what’s in the code: It will cost them hundreds of dollars to read it. Why? Because Georgia copyrighted its own code and gave sole distribution rights to LexisNexis, a for-profit company. The state has since raked in tens of thousands of dollars’ worth of royalty fees every year, all for allowing its citizens the privilege of reading their own laws..http://dailysignal.com/2017/12/01/georgia-copyrighted-laws-now-suin...

The net neutrality farce: From the start, the

concept has been based on a flawed foundation

by THOMAS HAZLETT

{nydailynews.com} ~ For the sixth time in the last decade, U.S. rules on "network neutrality" are set to flip... The controversial policy — first imposed by the Federal Communications Commission under Bush 43, then struck down by federal courts, then re-imposed under President liar-nObama, then overturned again, then imposed yet again — is now slated for demolition by Ajit Pai, the FCC head appointed by President Trump. In a public radio debate not long ago, Tom Wheeler — who led the FCC from 2013 until early this year — argued for net neutrality regulations to protect subscribers from anti-competitive actions by their Internet Service Providers (ISPs). He asserted that the rules would protect internet start-ups of the future, singling out AOL as his historical example. It was a stunning misdirection...  http://www.nydailynews.com/opinion/net-neutrality-farce-article-1.3...

Cuomo’s Expensive Puerto Rico 

“Better Than Ever” Bail Out – We Pay

by rickwells.us

{rickwells.us} ~ Andrew Cuomo is on his next political campaign, perhaps for governor of New York or maybe President of the United States... He’s saying what he believes will endear him to the parasites of America, also known as Democrat voters, both on the island of Puerto Rico and on the US mainland. The corrupt Democrats running and ruining Puerto Rico and hindering the aid effort are the ones responsible for what happened to that third world money pit that, unfortunately, is a US territory. It’s not the Trump administration’s fault, as was clearly evident during the immediate aftermath of the hurricanes. The mayor of San Juan and others vividly highlighted the fact that the Puerto Rican Democrats are every bit as corrupt and hypocritical as their mainland cousins... https://rickwells.us/cuomo-puerto-rico-better-pay/

DICTATORS

by Burt Prelutsky


For a long time, I have been firmly convinced that the ideal form of government would be a benevolent dictator, someone who could cut through the usual bureaucratic red tape and partisan politics that afflict representative forms of government, in order to do the most good, most quickly, for the most people.

Unfortunately, dictators who aren’t malevolent tyrants are rarer than unicorns. And as nobody is in a position to offer me the job, it appears we are pretty much stuck with what we have.

The problem is that even in such enlightened nations as England and the U.S., we have witnessed and sat idly by while those in authority misused their powers. In America, as we all recall, we all saw President liar-nObama enable the bureaucrats at the EPA to destroy businesses on the flimsiest of ecological whims. 

At the same time, he was allowed to get away with one whopper after another. Time and again, he swore that if we liked our doctors and our health insurance, we would be allowed to hang onto them under the Affordable Care Act.

Because he wasn’t impeached for such blatant lies, he felt that even after insisting on 26 separate occasions that he didn’t have the constitutional right to prevent six million illegal aliens from being deported, it was safe to go ahead and issue an executive order preventing their eviction.

What the dictator class did in England was, in a way, even worse because lying in the name of partisanship is bad, but it has a traditional basis in human nature. Nobody really expects politicians to have a moral compass. We all understand that those holding public office are mainly motivated by power and greed. But we expect more from those sworn to uphold the Hippocratic Oath, whose primary obligation is to do no harm.

When eight-month-old Charlie Gard was diagnosed with mitochondrial DNA depletion syndrome, a terminal neurological disease, his parents went about raising money through charitable donations to take their baby son to New York for experimental treatment. But the hospital objected, insisting that Charlie had the right to die with dignity.

When the parents countered that their son’s primary right was to live, the battle entered the legal system. Time and again, the English courts ruled in favor of the hospital. By the time Dr. Michio Hirano was permitted to come over from New York to examine the baby, he said it was too late for his treatment to have any chance of saving Charlie.

The court then ruled that Charlie would be taken off his respirator. Charlie died the next day. I can’t confirm that he died with his dignity intact. But however little he may have had, it dwarfed that of London’s Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children or the English legal system.

● Some people have defended the smutty things that Donald Trump said about women to Billy Bush during that famous conversation aboard a bus. They insist it was just a case of boys being boys, although Mr. Trump was pushing 60 at the time. They said it was just the sort of locker room braggadocio that males always engage in.

I’m 77. Therefore, I have spent a lot of time in locker rooms, though not recently, I’m happy to say. They were steamy, stinky places, but I never heard anything like the sort of crap Mr. Trump said to Bush. And I’m willing to wager that most of the men reading this haven’t, either.

But there’s no question that America has become a much coarser place over the years. I would trace it back to the 60s with the advent of its simplistic “Make Love Not War” slogan and the hippies’ campaign on behalf of “Free Love,” neither of which had anything to do with love, but were simply shorthand for irresponsible sex, which in turn made tax-subsidized abortions a hot-button issue for Democrats.

But that in no way diminishes liar-Bill Clinton’s influence on our culture through his sexual misbehavior both as the governor of Arkansas and the president of the United States.

But that doesn’t excuse Trump. I voted for him and plan to do so again in 2020, but that doesn’t mean I don’t think someone should wash his mouth out with a bar of Lifebuoy.

● I have long wondered how the American Revolution is taught in English schools and regarded by the English people. Is it a major or minor item in the national consciousness? Do they consider America’s victory as a major loss or as a lucky near-miss?

I have met people from England, but I never asked, possibly to avoid opening old wounds. But if anyone can provide me with an answer, please drop me an email.

● I hate to keep harping on Roy Moore and the allegations against him, but I can’t get over the fact that the man has been in public life for more than 30 years and there had never before been a hint of inappropriate sexual behavior. Unlike the politicians and show biz celebrities who have been accused in recent months, none of those making allegations against Mr. Moore were in a position where he could have destroyed their careers had they come forward.

Considering that nobody had breathed a word of scandal against Moore during his GOP primary battle with Luther Strange, it should make a person wonder. I would think that the timing of the allegations, coming just weeks before an election pitting him against an uberliberal named Doug Jones, would make every Alabama voter at least a little suspicious. I mean, as coincidences go, it is definitely a pipperoo.

● I have always been surprised by the lines from movies that become commonplace for no readily discernible reason. At least when it’s a line like the one from “Casablanca” where the cynical chief of police says he’s shocked to find that gambling is taking place in the backroom at Rick’s, even as he’s pocketing his winnings, the line is timeless because there are always corrupt politicians to whom it applies.

But why for a time was it impossible to avoid hearing “Make my day,” “Hasta la vista, baby” and “Life is like a box of chocolates,” on a daily, sometimes hourly, basis?

Sometimes, the line didn’t even exist the way it came to be repeated. Humphrey Bogart never told Dooley Wilson to “Play it again, Sam.” He said: “You played it for her, you can play it for me.”

In “Cool Hand Luke,” Strother Martin didn’t tell Paul Newman: “What we’ve got here is a failure to communicate.” He left out the “a,” which, to my ear and most other ears, apparently, destroyed the flow of the line.

Sean Connery’s identifying himself as “Bonds…James Bond” has become iconic, but perhaps that’s mainly due to its constant repetition in the Bond franchise. But, eight years prior to “Dr. No,” Sterling Hayden introduced himself to saloon owner Joan Crawford, using the same self-important inflection, as “Guitar…Johnny Guitar.”

● The best thing about having Thanksgiving in the rearview mirror is that it means that Christmas is just around the corner.

It is sometimes said that pretty girls in high school will hang around with homely girls because they look so much better in comparison and it cuts down on the competition.

I have always felt that way when it comes to the two holidays. Thanksgiving is cardboard turkeys, Pilgrims wearing funny hats stalking the ugliest bird to be found in the animal kingdom, and pumpkins whose bottoms go mushy in a few days. There aren’t even any catchy tunes connected to the fourth Thursday in November. Even Irving Berlin never wrote a song commemorating the occasion.

But, then, suddenly, magically, Thanksgiving is transformed into Christmas, which is essentially like the erstwhile dirty-faced, g-dropping, flower seller, Eliza Doolittle, appearing on Professor Higgins’ staircase, all gussied up for the ball, rivaling Grace Kelly and Lady Di in the princess competition.

ALERT ALERT

CRIME!! -> Clinton Nightmare! Chief Financial Officer Of Clinton Foundation Turns Government Informant On Crime Family

Donations to the Clinton Foundation plummeted by 90% over a three-year period since Hillary Clinton lost the 2016 election to President Donald Trump.

But that may be the least of the her worries.

John Solomon from The Hill dropped another bombshell that will keep the Clintons up at night.

The former Chief Financial Officer of the Clinton Foundation has turned on the crime family and is now working as a government informant.

This could spell doom for the Clinton Crime Family.

American Thinker reported:

John Solomon of The Hill reveals the story that has been percolating for a long time but kept tightly under wraps – because that is what serious prosecutors do, especially when grand juries are poring over evidence and issuing indictments that remain sealed until the right moment comes. The trigger for the story coming out now probably is a House subcommittee hearing scheduled next week by Mark Meadows, chair of the House Freedom Caucus, while the GOP still can set the agenda of House hearings.

[A] GOP-led congressional subcommittee, led by Rep. Mark Meadows (N.C.), is planning to hold a hearing next week to review the work of John Huber, the special U.S attorney named a year ago to investigate all things Clinton.

It turns out that whistleblowers inside and outside the Clinton Foundation have amassed “6,000 pages of evidence attached to a whistleblower submission filed secretly more than a year ago with the IRS and FBI.” Among that evidence can be found:

Those reviews flagged serious concerns about legal compliance, improper commingling of personal and charity business and “quid pro quo” promises made to donors while Hillary Clinton was secretary of State.

The submission also cites an interview its investigators conducted with Andrew Kessel that quotes the foundation’s longtime chief financial officer as saying he was unable to stop former President Clinton from “commingling” personal business and charitable activities inside the foundation and that he “knows where all the bodies are buried.”

Their own investigation! That’s hard to put down as politically motivated.

Having the chief financial officer of the Clinton Foundation turn informant is a nightmare for the Clintons. The CFO has to process all the cash, and because that person usually is on the hook for any criminal violations, there is ample incentive to turn state’s evidence.

That evidence was assembled by a private firm called MDA Analytics LLC, run by accomplished ex-federal criminal investigators, who alleged the Clinton Foundation engaged in illegal activities and may be liable for millions of dollars in delinquent taxes and penalties.

In addition to the IRS, the firm’s partners have had contact with prosecutors in the main Justice Department in Washington and FBI agents in Little Rock, Ark.
