Trump Smashes It

Religious Hospitals Need Not Apply
by Bill McMorris } ~ The University of California at San Francisco cancelled an expanded partnership with Catholic hospitals just weeks before losing government funding for its aborted-baby body part research... On Wednesday, the Trump administration announced that it would no longer allow government scientists to conduct research using organs and cells procured from aborted babies. As part of that policy, the Department of Health and Human Services announced that it would not renew a $13 million contract with UCSF to supply researchers with mice injected with fetal tissue. The university condemned the decision swiftly, saying that it would hurt patients and "undermine scientific discovery." UCSF has been willing to break off relationships with other health care providers over disputes about medical ethics. In May, the university cancelled plans to expand its affiliation with Dignity Health and its four regional hospitals. The announcement came following a pressure campaign from campus activists and faculty about Dignity's religious philosophy on abortion, euthanasia, and gender issues. "Many of you have expressed strong concerns about a significantly expanded UCSF relationship with a health care system that has certain limits on women’s reproductive services, LGBTQ care, and end-of-life options," UCSF Chancellor Sam Hawgood said in a statement on the university website. "Given the concerns, we will not continue to pursue the affiliation as it had been envisioned, which would have created a stronger link between UCSF Health and Dignity Health’s four Bay Area hospitals." When asked about the decision to halt the expansion and what it means for other religious health care institutions moving forward, a university spokeswoman referred to the original statement. The university has worked with Dignity Health, California's largest hospital system and the fifth largest in the country, for 20 years. Hawgood went on to say that the decision to cut off an expanded relationship was about "expanding access to welcoming and respectful health care." The university is sending a mixed message if the goal is to be "welcoming," according to Dr. T. Brian Callister, governor of the Nevada chapter of the American College of Physicians. Callister said UCSF's decision will limit access to care in order to appease the demands of political activists...  
Will health care’s immediate future look a lot like the recent past? More public-sector funding,
but more private-sector delivery and
administration, too
by Mark V. Pauly } ~ After two years of Republican control of the pres­idency and both houses of Congress, it seems appropriate to consider the paths health policy and health care markets... will likely follow for the remainder of President Donald Trump’s term and beyond. Future political events will influence some of this path’s direc­tion, but much of it will follow a trail already in place. A complete repeal and replace strategy for the Affordable Care Act (ACA) failed to garner sufficient Republican support in the Senate, but other adminis­trative and legislative changes e.g., the individual man­date, Cadillac tax, cost-sharing-reduction subsidies, risk corridor budget neutrality, Medicaid expansion, and insurance coverage requirements have chipped away at pieces of scumbag/liar-nObamacare, and more efforts e.g., association health plans, short-term insurance, and more permissive Medicaid waivers are underway. Each Trump administration effort to alter various ACA provisions was cited by ACA defenders and crit­ics alike as a potential crippling blow to scumbag/liar-nObamacare, but the law’s basic structure limps on. However, scumbag/liar-nObamacare supporters have recently expressed plea­sure that the Republican attacks and changes appear to have actually led to a stabilized, if not increased, government role in health care. Similar sentiments were expressed by the former Democratic insurance commissioner of Pennsylvania: “Republicans have inadvertently strengthened the hand of Democrats like me who prefer richer subsidies to a mandate and welcome the expanded federal role that will come with those subsidies.” More recently, the Novem­ber 2018 congressional elections demonstrated a clear shift in public sentiment, with greater popular support for retaining the ACA than for repealing or revising it extensively. Many campaigns by vulnerable Republican incumbents who had once supported ACA repeal and replace measures displayed notably greater defensiveness in retreating from their past positions to limit the law’s protections for coverage of individu­als with preexisting health conditions. The accuracy of further near-term forecasting may depend on how each wing of the health care process finances versus operations is actually configured. Even as the dollar amount of taxpayer-funded subsi­dies for health care continues to increase, the rules for how they are spent may continue a less-noticed trend of becoming more determined through pri­vate, market-like mechanisms, to such an extent that the final destination may be altered or at least more unpredictable...
How Palestinian Leaders Butcher the Truth

The  second victim was a 16-year-old who was stabbed by the terrorist in the back a few hundred meters away from the scene of the first attack. The teenager sustained light to moderate injuries. Police officers shot and killed the terrorist, thus preventing him from harming more Jews. Such stabbing attacks are not uncommon on the streets of Jerusalem. In the past few years, Palestinian terrorists have carried out several stabbing and shooting attacks against Israeli police officers and civilians, particularly ultra-Orthodox Jews who were on their way to or from prayer at the Western Wall. The wave of terrorist attacks began shortly after Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas said in 2015 that the Palestinians will not allow Jews "with their filthy feet to defile our Al-Aqsa Mosque." Abbas was referring to the Israeli authorities' decision to resume Jewish visits to the Temple Mount. The visits were temporarily suspended for security reasons after the eruption of the Second Intifada in September 2000. Abbas, who was speaking during a meeting with Arab residents of Jerusalem in his Ramallah office, added: "We bless every drop of blood that has been spilled for Jerusalem, which is clean and pure blood, blood spilled for Allah, Allah willing. Every Martyr (Shahid) will reach paradise, and everyone wounded will be rewarded by Allah. The Al-Aqsa Mosque is ours, the Church of the Holy Sepulcher is ours, and they have no right to defile them with their filthy feet. We will not allow them, and we will do everything in our power to protect Jerusalem." The truth is that the Jews touring the Temple Mount have never entered any of the mosques at the site or were involved in any form of violent attack against Muslim worshippers...
scumbag-Soros Spends $1 Million 
on VA Prosecutor Races
by Joe Schoffstall } ~ Liberal billionaire scumbag-George Soros has continued his bid to "overhaul" the criminal justice system in the United States... by pouring nearly $1 million into local Virginia prosecutor races to prop up far-left candidates. scumbag-Soros's most recent round of donations include  $580,000 to Parisa Dehghani-Tafti, a candidate for Arlington County commonwealth's attorney, and almost $400,000 to Steve Descana, a Fairfax County commonwealth's attorney candidate, for their June 11 primaries. scumbag-Soros pushed the contributions to Dehghani-Tafti and Descana from his Justice & Public Safety PAC, a committee used to fund local races across the country that could make an impact on the criminal justice system. The donations represent an overwhelming majority of what both candidates have raised, the Washington Post reports. scumbag-Soros, who has quietly flooded local district attorney and prosecutor races for some time now, puts his preferred candidates at a major money advantage for such a race. scumbag-Soros typically sets up a "pop up" PAC in states where the races are taking place in order to push the money in to back their candidacy's. At the conclusion of the race, any remaining money in the PAC's coffers is refunded and the PAC is often shut down...
The University System Is the
Progressives' Seminary
by Hezekiah Kantor } ~ One hallmark of religions is they often have an institution of higher learning, where the most ambitious and well schooled young people go to complete their religious training and enter the world as leaders of their faith...
 In Christianity, we call these seminaries. A seminary is the place where a devout believer goes before he enters ministry. Once this training is completed, he is called to go out into the world to minister to his flock and to convert the unconverted. The Progressive Left has a seminary, too — a finishing school where the ambitious and well schooled are polished to become "ministers" of their religion. It is the American university system. The average high school graduate of promise often has no idea what world he is entering. All he knows is that all of his teachers have encouraged him from kindergarten until the end of his senior year that, if he has the talent and ability, he must go to college. The reasons for this aren't nefarious. He will make more money as a college graduate; he will have a lower unemployment rate as a college graduate; and his general prospects for marriage, mental health, and the chance to retire are greatly improved by college. College has been, and continues to be, a great benefit — just like the public primary and secondary schools — for these reasons. But he is also unaware that he is about to enter a world that is even more slanted against tradition and conservatism than his usually left-leaning public school teachers, where conservatives are outnumbered nationally by a ratio of only 6 to 1. According to the 2016 Voter Study Group, approximately 52% of Americans are conservatives. Forty-eight percent are liberals. That's what America thinks like. Our young high school pupil grows up being raised by these people, going to church with these people, playing sports with these people, and being in community with these people — the truly diverse America. Then he goes to college, and he enters an entirely different world. The ideology is no longer split almost fifty-fifty, as it is in the real America. Instead, he enters the seminary, a place populated by a sort of priesthood the professors, whose members teach the religion of Progressive Liberalism — through the content of the courses, through the arguments of the lectures they give, and through the host of campus-sponsored events the university puts on. Looking at the politics of the university professoriate, it's hard not to make the connection...
Dems Hide Behind 'Decorum,' Trump 
Smashes It
Nate Jackson:  While President Donald Trump was visiting America’s European allies in large part to memorialize the 75th anniversary of the D-Day invasion, House Speaker liar-Nancy Pulosi let leak her expressed desire: “I don’t want to see [President Trump] impeached; I want to see him in prison.” As she has done in the past, it was a setup for the media to bait Trump. It worked.

Speaking with Fox News’s Laura Ingraham from Normandy — with the American cemetery in the background — Trump slammed liar-Pulosi. “I think she’s a disgrace. I actually don’t think she’s a talented person. I’ve tried to be nice to her because I would have liked to have gotten some deals done,” he said, continuing, “She’s incapable of doing deals. She’s a nasty, vindictive, horrible person.”

He wasn’t done, pointing accurately to the scumbag/liar-Hillary Clinton-supporting Democrats who composed Mueller’s team and asserting, “The Mueller report came out [and] it was a disaster for them. … He made such a fool out of himself.” Then he leveled both barrels against Pelosi: “But liar-Nancy Pulosi, I call her ‘Nervous liar-Nancy.’ … liar-Nancy Pulosi’s a disaster, OK? She’s a disaster and let her do what she wants. … I think they’re in big trouble.”

He even slammed her for the rampant homelessness and drug addiction in her San Francisco district, saying, “Ask liar-Nancy, why is her district [having] drug needles all over the place? It’s the most disgusting thing what she’s allowed to happen to her district, with needles, with drug addicts … with people living on the sidewalk.”

As for her “in prison” comment, Trump added, “It was a horrible, nasty, vicious statement while I’m overseas. … She is a terrible person and I’ll tell you her name — it’s ‘Nervous liar-Nancy’ because she’s a nervous wreck.”

How did liar-Pulosi respond? “I don’t talk about the president while I’m out of the country,” she haughtily pronounced. “That’s my principle.” No, her principle is that the speaker of the House can declare while the president is overseas that she wants to “see him in prison” and then retreat behind decorum when she’s overseas.

Earlier yesterday, Trump gave a memorable and beautiful D-Day speech that even his political opponents applauded. Would we have preferred that Trump hold his tongue in the later interview and observe decorum at such a hallowed site? Absolutely.

But then again, what has decorum gotten previous Republican presidents? Democrats will call Republicans horrible things no matter the timing or venue. Trump punches back twice as hard, which is why he emerged victorious from a crowded Republican presidential field.

Footnote: Former Secretary of State hanoi-John Kerry, who really should be in prison for treasonously collaborating with the North Vietnamese while in France, likewise used the cemetery at Normandy to take a veiled shot at Trump because “facts are being erased from the public dialogue” and for the rise of “elements of fascism.” He, like liar-Pulosi, hid behind decorum, saying, “This is not a place to talk about Democrat or Republican or anything political.” While Democrats politicize everything at the same time as they claim the high ground, Trump wants nothing to do with phony pretenses.  ~The Patriot Post
