‘Ample Evidence of Collusion?’ – Meghan
McCain Confronts ‘Shifty scumbag-Schiff’
By JAMES LUKSIC } ~ A popular Wendy’s commercial in the 1980s asked a timeless question: “Where’s the beef?”... That’s essentially what Meghan McCain is asking sanctimonious Rep.  scumbag-Adam Schiff when it comes to evidence proving then-candidate Donald Trump’s campaign colluded with Russia. Despite all proof to the contrary, including former special counsel Robert Mueller’s anti-climatic report, scumbag-Schiff insists that President Trump is guilty of collusion — plus obstruction, racism, tax evasion, come what may. As the Washington Examiner reported, “The View” co-host McCain called out the House Intelligence Committee chairman during a split-screen interview Thursday. “You have claimed for years now you have a smoking gun of evidence of collusion. Your quote is ‘ample evidence of collusion,'” McCain said. McCain, daughter of the late Arizona Republican Sen. rino-John McCain, has become increasingly outspoken this year, as if carrying her father’s political torch. To that end, she held scumbag-Schiff’s fancy feet to the flame during their televised one-on-one. It was satisfying to see somebody put him on the spot, since the  California congressman has insinuated there’s such a mountain of “evidence” against Trump, it would take a grapple and hook to scale it. “Can you share with us — right here, right now on ‘The View’ — the evidence that you have and explain why Mueller was wrong yesterday?” McCain asked. scumbag-Schiff’s initial response was as condescending and obtuse as the man himself, as he said the proof “is in plain sight, not hidden anywhere.”... He Still won't show us his prove.  
After Trump Slams scumbag-Cummings’ 
‘Rodent Infested’ District, Undeniable Video 
of Living Conditions Surfaces
By JARED HARRIS } ~ Bristling from constant attacks on conditions at the southern border from Maryland Democratic Rep. scumbag-Elijah Cummings...  President Donald Trump on Saturday morning unleashed the truth on the state of scumbag-Cummings’ own home district. Trump’s tweets came after scumbag-Cummings’ criticism of U.S. Border Patrol employees earlier this month. scumbag-Cummings, whose district encompasses parts of Baltimore, infamously implied there was an “empathy deficit” among agents after hearing rumors about what was happening on the border. “Rep. scumbag-Elijah Cummings has been a brutal bully, shouting and screaming at the great men and women of Border Patrol about conditions at the Southern Border,” Trump tweeted Saturday. “As proven last week during a Congressional tour, the Border is clean, efficient & well run, just very crowded,” the president said in a follow-up tweet. “scumbag-Cumming District is a disgusting, rat and rodent infested mess.” While scumbag-Cummings would likely reject this characterization of his district, damning video that appears to come from the district reveals there are, without a doubt, some major problems in the city. The video, posted by local Republican activist Kimberly Klacik, shows a filthy and potentially dangerous trash dump in the middle of a residential neighborhood...
How the Plastics Industry Is Fighting 
to Keep Polluting the World
TFKNCSGqciDMI4g8C7mF4mO-0v-EpO_tOM5SlEgosTUOSWteyL23uXQfEE1p6Jwf6pjwRUfwPA1W_66jJMT_6uPK3xBg1ERolXmlAm3O7t-fJfkVflQE9QfoodpMdg4BLUPJQg1oQRm4ozjYFiZQsRJK8_b6SlwwEKc=s0-d-e1-ft#%3Ca%20rel%3Dnofollow%20href=?profile=RESIZE_710xby Sharon Lerner } ~ The stuents at Westmeade Elementary School worked hard on their dragon. And it paid off... The plastic bag receptacle that the kids painted green and outfitted with triangular white teeth and a “feed me” sign won the students from the Nashville suburb first place in a recycling box decorating contest. The idea, as Westmeade’s proud principal told a local TV news show, was to help the environment. But the real story behind the dragon — as with much of the escalating war over plastic waste — is more complicated. The contest was sponsored by A Bag’s Life, a recycling promotion and education effort of the American Progressive Bag Alliance, a lobbying group that fights restrictions on plastic. That organization is part of the Plastics Industry Association, a trade group that includes Shell Polymers, LyondellBasell, Exxon Mobil, Chevron Phillips, DowDuPont, and Novolex — all of which profit hugely from the continued production of plastics. And even as A Bag’s Life was encouraging kids to spread the uplifting message of cleaning up plastic waste, its parent organization, the American Progressive Bag Alliance, was backing a state bill that would strip Tennesseans of their ability to address the plastics crisis. The legislation would make it illegal for local governments to ban or restrict bags and other single-use plastic products — one of the few things shown to actually reduce plastic waste. A week after Westmeade’s dragon won the contest, the APBA got its own reward: The plastic preemption bill passed the Tennessee state legislature. Weeks later, the governor signed it into law, throwing a wrench into an effort underway in Memphis to charge a fee for plastic bags. Meanwhile, A Bag’s Life gave the Westmeade kids who worked on the bag monster a $100 gift card to use “as they please.” And with that, a minuscule fraction of its vast wealth, the plastics industry applied a green veneer to its increasingly bitter and desperate fight to keep profiting from a product that is polluting the world... Its not the plastic that is polluting the world its the people.
An Increasingly Dangerous 
Stand-off between Civilizations
by Denis MacEoin } ~ The number of deaths is not always a guide to the impact of a tragedy. One of the most recent tragedies had a high, but far from record-making, toll of fatalities... First, and as a basis for comparison, it is worth noting that the November 2015 Islamic State attacks in Paris slaughtered 90 people in the Bataclan Theatre and more elsewhere in the city, for a total of 130 deaths. The Islamist truck attack on a single stretch of road in Nice on 14 July 2016 took no fewer than 86 lives. On Easter Sunday, 21 April 2019, around 253 innocent people, including many children, were slaughtered during radical Muslim attacks on churches and three hotels in Sri Lanka, the largest death toll since the nearly 3,000 on September 11, 2001. These all took their toll and will not soon be forgotten. Another attack recently took place that may have left a lasting impression, already changing how people think and act about our responses to these attacks and the people who perpetrate them, as we move more forcefully into a state of concerns on both sides of an increasingly dangerous stand-off between civilizations. Most recently, 50 people were killed and another 50 were injured during an armed attack on two mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand on March 15, 2019. The alleged killer was a 28-year-old Australian man, apparently a far-right activist named Brenton Harrison Tarrant. He was arrested while driving away from the second attack, possibly headed for another Islamic centre. Police Commissioner Mike Bush said  that authorities "absolutely" believe they stopped the suspect "on the way to a further attack." One target may have been the Ashburton Mosque, about an hour's drive away. According to New Zealand's News Hub: There are several other targets within Christchurch that Tarrant may have considered while plotting his alleged crime. There are two Halal food outlets - a butchery and a supermarket - in the vicinity of the immobilised car. The most chilling possible target en route to Ashburton is the An-Nur Child Care Centre on Springs Road in Hornby in the city's far west. The Centre is described as "the only Islamic early learning service in Christchurch". The same source said that Tarrant, in his written manifesto, identified the Ashburton Mosque as the next outlet for his hatred. He called the place a "desecration" because it had been converted from a church...
The Senate's Lower Health Care Cost Act 
Repeats Worst Features of
By David Hogberg } ~ Remember the big lies of scumbag/liar-nObamaCare?  One of the biggest was, “If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor.”... But once scumbag/liar-nObamaCare went into effect in 2014, consumers suddenly found that their health plans did not cover their doctors. Unfortunately, a new bill before the U.S. Senate threatens to give insurance customers déjà vu all over again. Dubbed the “Lower Health Care Cost Act,” the bill claims to protect recipients of unexpected medical bills that their healthcare plans will not cover. In reality, it imposes price controls on insurers similar to scumbag/liar-nObamaCare. The result could be more patients finding that their doctors are no longer covered by their healthcare plans.  scumbag/liar-nObamaCare imposed a type of price control on individual markets called “community rating.” Its unintended effect was to increase premiums for younger, healthier customers, causing them to forego insurance. The result was health insurance “pools” comprised more heavily of older and sicker customers.  Those insurance pools were more expensive for insurers to cover. One way that insurers tried to control costs was with what became known as the “skinny network.” Specifically, insurers eliminated the more expensive providers from their coverage networks and only covered cheaper ones. For example, one study found that access to specialists was up to 65 percent lower under policies on the scumbag/liar-nObamaCare exchanges compared to pre/scumbag/liar-nObamaCare insurance plans. As a result, many patients discovered that the doctors that they had seen for years were no longer covered under their insurance plans. No one wants a repeat of that, but that is what the Lower Health Care Cost Act (LHCC) will give us. Patients who receive emergency medical treatment from doctors and hospitals outside the coverage of their health insurance plan often receive unexpected bills for heavy expenses. The LHCC uses price controls to force health insurers to cover out-of-network emergency service. Specifically, when a patient receives treatment from an out-of-network provider, the insurer will have to pay the provider the median price that they pay their in-network providers for that treatment. That price control creates perverse incentives for health insurers.  Insurers will be motivated to reduce the number of higher-priced doctors, hospitals, and other providers in their networks. By eliminating those providers, insurers will reduce the median price they will pay for out-of-network emergency services. The LHCC gives insurers another perverse incentive to eliminate higher-priced providers from their networks. By removing such providers, insurers make those providers “out-of-network.” If an insurer’s customers use those higher-priced providers, the insurer will only have to pay the providers the cheaper median price. These incentives are the reason insurance companies are pushing hard for the LHCC. The insurers are even going so far as to provide Congress with studies to promote the LHCC’s efficacy. In fact, the studies into the issue were created by the USC-Brookings Schaeffer Initiative for Health Policy, an organization whose founding chairman is the CEO of the largest insurance company in the United States, Anthem. Should the LHCC become law, it won’t be long before more and more patients find that their doctors are no longer covered under their insurance plans. This fact is not a mere inconvenience for patients. In general, patients prefer a provider they know when it comes to dealing with sensitive health care issues. The trust inherent in doctor-patient relationships is often built up over years. The LHCC gives insurers an incentive to disrupt those relationships. Even if LHCC becomes law, it is unlikely it will do much to protect patients from surprise medical bills.  The LHCC gives the U.S. Department Health and Human Services the authority to set up a dispute resolution process when insurers and providers disagree over whether a service should be covered...  
The Demos' Socialist Cloward-Piven Pivot
Mark Alexander:  Since broadcasting our first email digest more than 20 years ago, our Patriot Post editorial team has reviewed, daily, the full spectrum of political advocacy and rhetoric. After all, the best way to understand the strategies and tactics used by the adversaries of Liberty and Rule of Law is to go straight to the source. And so, every day, my inbox is filled with a wide range of email — from the Communist Party USA (CPUSA) on the Left to the John Birch Society on the Right.

Reviewing everything the Left spews is a dirty job, but somebody has to do it!

Over the last decade, the political and policy positions of the CPUSA and those of the Socialist Democrat Party leadership increasingly constitute a distinction without much difference — Democrats are just more tactful than communists (sometimes). It’s no small irony that we observed “The Communist Centennial of Tyranny and Terror” during the same year that, thank goodness,  Donald Trump defeated scumbag/liar-Hillary Clinton.

Ahead of 2020, the cadres of assorted statists who make up the Democrats’ presidential primary plethora hope to defeat Trump with their collective constituencies strategy. Their socialist pacesetter is commie-Bernie Sanders, who was sandbagged by the Democrats in the 2016 primary, and his loudmouthed gaggle of socialist sycophants includes four congresswomen — commie-Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, worthless-Ilhan Omar, worthless-Rashida Tlaib, and worthless-Ayanna Pressley, collectively labeled “The Squad,” but more accurately, “The Gang of Four.”

Indicative of the backroom alliance between Tom Perez’s Democrat National Committee (DNC) and John Bachtell’s CPUSA was a recent email I received. No, it didn’t announce the merger of the two organizations, but it did do something much more subtle.

In order to track incoming email from various sources, I use more than 30 email address variants. But three weeks ago, I started receiving duplicate emails from the DNC — and I noted that those duplicates were using the specific address I use for incoming email from CPUSA. Not that I was surprised, but how revealing. For the record, when one organization integrates the email list of another, without the knowledge or permission of those being merged, it violates a lot of email double-opt-in protocols. When this happens, the email from the sender will typically be marked “spam” and this will hinder delivery of the DNC’s email. Not a problem! (For the record, Patriot Post subscribers have to double-opt-in to receive our publications, and we do not share or sell that information to any third party, which is why our email lists are “spam free” and our delivery rates are very high.)

So, what objectives and strategies do the Democrat Party and CPUSA have in common? Well, how much time do you have?

Most notably, both are advocates of the Cloward-Piven Strategy, which is the ‘60s-era brainchild of two hard-left academics to “end poverty” by creating an economic crisis that would lead to the collapse of capitalism resulting in its replacement with socialism.

As one of our political analysts, Arnold Ahlert, wrote: “In 1966, Columbia University sociologists Richard Andrew Cloward and Frances Fox Piven formulated the Cloward-Piven Strategy. It was a plan to overthrow America’s capitalist system by overloading the welfare state bureaucracy with demands that were impossible to meet, thereby precipitating a revolution.” Ahlert noted that the latest “effort to 'crash the system’” is to overload it with illegal immigrants.

This explains the Demos’ 2020 platform: “Open Borders and Free Stuff.” Indeed, the party that was once the champion of blue-collar workers now supports the greatest threat to labor, wage growth, and the economy overall: the influx of millions of illegal aliens competing for jobs, willing to take lower wages, and soaking up enormous taxpayer resources in terms of medical care, welfare, housing, and education.

According to Cloward and Piven, to achieve their goal, it would necessitate “a massive drive to recruit the poor onto the welfare rolls,” followed by “a federal program of income redistribution … necessary to elevate the poor en masse from poverty.” That income redistribution would take the form of “a guaranteed annual income and thus an end to poverty.” Except the only thing that’s equal under socialism is poverty — except, of course, for the political class.

Cloward and Piven insisted: “Republicans are always ready to declaim the evils of public welfare, and they would probably be the first to raise a hue and cry. But deeper and politically more telling conflicts would take place within the Democratic coalition. … Whites — both working class ethnic groups and many in the middle class — would be aroused against the ghetto poor, while liberal groups, which until recently have been comforted by the notion that the poor are few … would probably support the movement. Group conflict, spelling political crisis for the local party apparatus, would thus become acute as welfare rolls mounted and the strains on local budgets became more severe.”

Their strategy is similar (albeit more radical) to the failed model Franklin Delano Roosevelt called “The New Deal.” FDR infamously proclaimed, “Here is my principle: Taxes shall be levied according to ability to pay. That is the only American principle.” Of course, that “American principle” is merely a paraphrase from Karl Marx’s Communist Manifesto, in which he declared, “From each according to his abilities, to each according to his needs.”

FDR’s failed programs were reincarnated as the Democrats’ so-called “Great Society,” which, in effect, enslaved millions of poor Americans on urban poverty plantations and coincided with the first publication of the Cloward-Piven Strategy.

Today, 50 years after the Left’s so-called “War on Poverty,” many Americans are now “institutionally impoverished,” unprepared and unwilling to rise above the poverty line because they’ve been generationally disabled from doing so.

As Cloward and Piven noted: “As the crisis develops, it will be important to use the mass media to inform the broader liberal community about the inefficiencies and injustices of welfare.” The Demo/MSM propaganda machine is just waiting for the signal from its leftist puppeteers!

The Democrats almost achieved critical economic overload in 2008, when their statist “economic equality” policies resulted in the near-collapse of our economy. I detailed this in “How Democrats Seeded the 2008 Financial Crisis.” That was a near miss, but they did get an ideological socialist as a consolation prize: eight years of Barack scumbag/liar-nObama as president of the United States.

As I wrote eight months ago, Democrats are desperately hoping for a recession before the 2020 election. And they’re ready to pounce on the next opening to overload the system and create a crisis, adhering to the advice of scumbag/liar-nObama’s former chief of staff, Rahm Emanuel: “You never want a serious crisis to go to waste. And what I mean by that is it’s an opportunity to do things you think you could not do before.”
