diGenova: Rosenstein Deeply Involved in Effort 
to Try to Remove Trump From Office
by rickwells.us  
{rickwells.us} ~ Commenting on President Trump’s decision to declassify some of the Justice Department’s documents on its investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election... attorney and former federal prosecutor Joe diGenova said that Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein has tried to stop Trump from doing so, claiming that Special Counsel dirty cop-Robert Mueller would view Trump’s action as “obstruction.” However, added diGenova, Rosenstein is being deceitful and is only trying “to protect himself” against revelations that he has a direct conflict with the DOJ’s investigation and that the declassified documents will show he was “deeply involved in the effort to try to remove the president from office under the 25th Amendment.” The New York Times reported on Sept. 21 that Rosenstein, as deputy attorney general in 2017, suggested in meetings with FBI and DOJ officials that people wear wires to secretly record President Trump in the White House and that they consult with Cabinet officials about removing Trump under the 25th Amendment. On the Nov. 8 edition of WMAL’s Mornings on the Mall, diGenova was asked about the DOJ’s opposition to declassifying Russia-collusion documents and why Trump has decided to release the records...  https://rickwells.us/digenova-rosenstein-involved-trump/

Florida Vote Scandal Coverage Shows 
Media-Democrat Complicity. Again. 
by Mollie Hemingway  
{thefederalist.com} ~ Florida voters elected Republican Ron DeSantis as governor and Republican Rick Scott as senator on election night... Both were announced as winners and their opponents conceded defeat. But then Democratic lawyer Marc Elias announced that Democrats would be going for a recount and would win the Senate seat. A few days after the 2018 election was held, Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) sounded the alarm about serious irregularities in the counting of ballots in two Democratic stronghold counties in Florida: To make sure that votes aren’t being invented or destroyed to effect an outcome, one of the first priorities of any election supervisor is to announce how many ballots are in possession and how many remain to be counted. To fail to do this, as the Broward County and Palm Beach CountySupervisors had, is to open themselves up to the accusation of massive vote fraud. Citizens can not have confidence that ballots are not being destroyed, or created, when supervisors fail to immediately announce how many ballots are on hand. Florida law also requires that vote-by-mail and absentee ballots are accounted for within 30 minutes of polls closing. While the other 65 counties in Florida had no problem following this state law, the supervisors of Broward County and Palm Beach County refused to follow that law. Florida law also requires that the Department of State be given reports every 45 minutes until results are completely filed. Palm Beach County has refused to do this... The rest of the country needs to know that the laws are being followed not remover or changed.  http://thefederalist.com/2018/11/09/florida-vote-scandal-coverage-s... 

Trouble in Nigeria? Must be Trump's Fault
by Veronika Kyrylenko
{americanthinker.com} ~ The leftists continue to demonstrate a severe Trump Derangement Syndrome... How else do you explain a manic obsession in finding connections between everything terrible that happens in the world and President Trump, or seeing a malicious intent in his every single action and word? Planet is heating up – Trump’s to blame no, it “doesn’t matter” for the leftists that we are reducing carbon emissions. Trump nominates a new Supreme Court Judge – let’s oppose him with “whatever means necessary”. Trump smiled at Putin at some formal gathering -- Putin’s puppet, obviously no, it “doesn’t matter” that the Trump Administration is constantly introducing anti-Russian sanctions. Now, in the end of October, the Nigerian Army killed 45 and wounded nearly 100 protesters from the radical Shia group called Islamic Movement of Nigeria (IMN) when they started throwing rocks at the soldiers. The leftist reaction? You guessed it – it was Trump’s fault. “Nigerian Army Uses Trump’s Words to Justify Fatal Shooting of Rock-Throwing Protesters,” runs the New York Times. “Nigerian Army defends killing protesters by quoting Trump. Trump’s caravan rhetoric affecting the whole world,” asserts CBS. That’s right, the whole world. So, what actually happened? The Nigerian army’s official Twitter account posted a video, “Please Watch and Make Your Deductions,” showing Trump’s speech in which he said rocks would be considered firearms if thrown toward the American military at the nation’s borders as the 7,000-migrant caravan was approaching southern border of America. “We’re not going to put up with that,” President Trump said. “They want to throw rocks at our military, our military fights back.” Nigerian army deleted the post hours later without explanation after it had caused an uproar on social media. But it was more than enough for the leftist media to “connect the dots” between the Trump’s words that suggested a decisiveness to protect American border and the lives of those who defend it with the long-lasting conflict between Sunni and secular Nigerian government...  https://www.americanthinker.com/articles/2018/11/trouble_in_nigeria...

Broward County Is An Embarrassment, And The Potential 
For A Stolen Florida Election Is Real  
by Ben Domenech  
{thefederalist.com} ~ Last night CBS News’ John Dickerson tweeted “The Florida voting system is the Florida Man of voting systems.”... But at least Florida Man combines stupid fun entertainmentwith incompetence and hubris, as opposed to depressing levels of corruption and idiocy. Comes now Dr. Brenda C. Snipes, the key election official in Broward County, Florida has presided for the past 72 hours over a level of bureaucratic incompetence – in the best spin of the situation – or utter corruption in the worst when it comes to counting the ballots from her county.Last night Governor and would-be Senator Rick Scott announced he was filing a lawsuit against her – not one claiming anything about the ballots being counted, but simply demanding that she live up to the regulatory obligation to tell us how many ballots there are. Again, this is not a lawsuit about counting, just about knowing how many ballots you have left to count, which is required to be disclosed by law. This demand to know the facts is being described by some Democrats as an attempt to prevent votes being counted. That’s how ridiculous the situation is...

Health Care as a Selling Point
by Michael Swartz:  Eight years ago last week, conservative voters and their allies in the Republican Party stormed the ballot box and made a statement about the policies of Barack scumnag/liar-nObama: They didn’t want anything to do with them. While scumnag/liar-nObama’s Keynesian-on-steroids stimulus program was the original impetus for what became the Tea Party wave, by the time the 2010 midterms rolled around, voters were demanding the repeal of the newly passed and ridiculously named Affordable Care Act — already dubbed as  scumnag/liar-nObamaCare — and Republicans won by promising to deliver.

             Three days ago, that hard-won majority in the House  melted away, in part because Republicans who vowed to rid Americans of the scourge of scumnag/liar-nObamaCare couldn’t deliver the goods, even when they had the trifecta of controlling both houses of Congress and the White House. (The House voted numerous times over the years to repeal scumnag/liar-nObamaCare while safe in the knowledge that any actual repeal would die in the Senate or be vetoed by scumnag/liar-nObama.) 
               Granted, the way the architects of scumnag/liar-nObamaCare  rolled out the program was very shrewd: They began by instituting popular features like removing lifetime coverage limits, allowing children to remain on their parents’ policy until the age of 26, and — most important — eliminated the prospect of paying through the nose for insurance due to a pre-existing condition.               

               That latter aspect was by far the most popular, so much so that people stopped clamoring for repeal even as rates and deductibles surged. Eventually, Republicans gravitated from the promise for a straight repeal to “repeal and replace.” Thus, as the GOP ceded the argument for eliminating the Affordable Care Act,  scumnag/liar-nObamaCare became the new foundation in the structure of American health care.
                Now, after nearly a decade, most working Americans under 30 are more interested in repealing  scumnag/liar-nObamaCare only if it’s replaced by “Medicare for All,” because they don’t remember any other system. We found out Tuesday just how effective that re-education was. As the ranks of GOP representatives and candidates, particularly from suburban areas, were decimated by Democrats, it became clear that the Left’s promise of a different kind of health care reform had won the day. As The Washington Post reminded us pre-election,  health care was Americans’ top issue, and those who thought so preferred the Democrats by a whopping 58%-34% margin.                             Unfortunately for congressional Republicans, their somewhat incoherent messaging regarding health care never reached the mainstream. While Democrats derided newly available short-term insurance policies and association plans as “junk insurance,” they represented more of what insurance was intended to be — a shared hedge against risk as opposed to blanket coverage for every possible malady under the sun. Moreover, a recent Wall Street Journal editorial put the lie to the Democrats’ contention:
               Speaking of association plans, the returns are coming in on the Democratic claim that allowing employers to band together to offer coverage is “junk insurance.” The plans are still nascent, but look at what the Las Vegas Metro Chamber of Commerce is offering: nine plan choices; dental, vision and life coverage available; pre-existing conditions covered; and more, with premium rates locked in for two years.
               This is no surprise. The selling point of association plans is that businesses can pool risk and cut overhead costs. Businesses want to offer generous coverage that helps to attract workers in a tight labor market.
               Add in new rules allowing employers to offer workers tax-exempt dollars to buy insurance in the individual market, and it appeared that, rightly or wrongly, the Trump administration was doing its own end run around Congress — just as Barack  scumnag/liar-nObama often did when Republicans ran the House.
               But it wasn’t in scumnag/liar-nObama’s interest to encourage free-market solutions, and under a new Democrat-controlled Congress, this sort of reform could be once again an endangered species. Generation Z writer Alex Muresianu noted in the Washington Examiner that, while the Trump idea of bringing transparency to pricing was a good idea, an even better one would be universal catastrophic care — a sort of “scumnag/liar-nObamaCare lite,” in which the government covers major medical events and allows the rest to be covered through HSAs or supplemental insurance.
               Even President Trump, that champion of deregulation, isn’t immune from letting his populist side show up. Days before the election, he brought forth a proposal to regulate drug prices, in part by comparing our rates to an “international pricing index.” Ironically, it came shortly after the president’s Council of Economic Advisers came out with a report on the opportunity costs of socialism, where they concluded, in part:
               With health insurance, to name one of the major industries in the U.S. economy, socialists promise great results if only the state is granted a monopoly and its goods and services are distributed free of charge. Such a state enterprise would be far larger and more centralized than any the Nordic countries have ever seen. 
               The historical evidence suggests that the socialist program for the U.S. would make shortages, or otherwise degrade quality, of whatever product or service is put under a public monopoly. The pace of innovation would slow, and living standards generally would be lower.
               We never seem to learn that lesson, perhaps because we rely on political solutions instead of the state-level and market-based solutions we know are out there. Had the Republicans taken advantage of the opportunity to keep their scumnag/liar-nObamaCare promise — and, more important, had a transition program ready to go — Tuesday’s House races would have likely been a reward for a roaring economy instead of a GOP bloodbath.  ~The Patriot Post

ALERT ALERT

Goodbye 2020: Clinton Ordered By Federal Judge To Submit To Questioning

(TeaParty.org) – Just when Hillary Clinton began hinting that she’s ready to run again in 2020, she has been ordered by a federal judge to submit to questioning about the use of her private email server to convey classified documents during her time as Secretary of State.

U.S. District Court Judge Emmet Sullivan made the order as part of a lawsuit from conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch.

“Court rules late today Hillary Clinton must answer more email questions — including key q’s about the setting up of her email system,” wrote Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton in a tweet following the ruling.

Judicial Watch 🔎 @JudicialWatch

BREAKING: Judicial Watch announced today that, following JW's court battle, U.S. District Court Judge Emmet G. Sullivan ruled that Hillary Clinton must answer – under oath – two additional questions on her controversial email system within 30 days.

Tom Fitton  @TomFitton

Breaking: Court rules late today Hillary Clinton must answer more email questions -- including key q's about the setting up of her email system. Court denied our request to unseal vid depositions of Clinton aides. Great work by Michael Bekesha!

As a statement from Judicial Watch explains, the ruling is the latest development in the group’s Freedom of Information Act lawsuit, which they began to discover why former deputy chief of staff to Mrs. Clinton, Huma Abedin, was allowed to work at the State Department while also engaged in “outside employment.”

Clinton now has 30 days to answer two key questions from a list of 25 questions composed by Judicial Watch.

The questions the judge selected are:

1) “Describe the creation of the clintonemail.com system, including who decided to create the system, the date it was decided to create the system, why it was created, who set it up, and when it became operational.”

During your October 22, 2015 appearance before the U.S. House of Representatives Select Committee on Benghazi, you testified that 90 to 95 percent of your emails “were in the State’s system” and “if they wanted to see them, they would certainly have been able to do so.” Identify the basis for this statement, including all facts on which you relied in support of the statement, how and when you became aware of these facts, and, if you were made aware of these facts by or through another person, identify the person who made you aware of these facts.

This new development is huge because it means that the two critical scandals from Clinton’s time in the State Department, her private email server and the Benghazi attacks, are facing fresh scrutiny in both the legal system and the court of public opinion.

And while Clinton likely had little chance of any run in 2020, this makes it even less likely she will stand even a shred of a chance.

We’ve have got to hope and pray that at long last, this leads to the long overdue criminal charges we’ve all been waiting to see.
