Voters Reject Single-Payer Health Insurance
and Socialism, Heritage Action Polls Find
by Rachel del Guidice
dailysignal.com } ~ Americans don’t want socialism and the policies pushed by the left, such as government-run health care, a series of polls commissioned by Heritage Action for America has found... “Our goal was simple: To find out what issues currently motivate the coalition that elected Donald Trump and Republican congressional majorities in 2016, so that we can keep that coalition together and expand it while simultaneously advancing the conservative ideas we hold dear,” Tim Chapman, executive director of Heritage Action, wrote in an op-ed for Politico Magazine. “We found that the GOP isn’t connecting the dots between its own innate conservative principles and voters’ preferences—which, our polling reveals, are more similar than many realize.” Conservatives, Chapman said, must show the liberal proposals “would exacerbate a two-tiered, unfair society.” The polling found that 70% of participants say they reject single-payer health insurance, 65% oppose socialism, and 63% see the immigration situation on the southern border as a “national emergency.” “In the case of Medicare for All,” Chapman wrote, “Republicans should argue that it would create a one-size-fits-all government-run program for normal folks, while the rich will find other ways to get better care.” The polling commissioned by Heritage Action, the lobbying arm of The Heritage Foundation, identified immigration as the single biggest issue across every demographic group. Chapman wrote: But the reasons voters gave for immigration’s importance weren’t what you’d expect—at least not if you listen to the way the issue is often discussed. On the one hand, 83 percent of Republican voters said that ‘illegal immigration affects my life,’ including strong majorities of working-class and suburban voters. Yet when asked what they considered to be illegal immigration’s biggest consequence, the most common answer wasn’t violence, job losses, or cultural change; more than half said overuse of social services.The polls elicited strong responses to questions on social issues...
Joe diGenova: “Declassified documents will be released this week … by Wednesday” (July 31st)
by sundance
theconservativetreehouse.com } ~ Speaking to WMAL radio, former U.S. Attorney Joe diGenova informs the audience that declassified documents will begin to be made public starting Wednesday July 31st... Additionally, Mr. diGenova states confidently that U.S. Attorney John Durham is not conducting a “review”, but is conducting a full criminal investigation with a grand jury empaneled and currently receiving testimony from witnesses. Obviously Joe diGenova is making a very specific statement with measurable and specific action to come on very specific day.  Good news !! On May 23rd, 2019, President Trump gave AG Bill Barr unilateral authority to declassify documents.  A month later, against the backdrop of more evidence surfacing showing corruption within the DOJ and FBI (June 14th, 2019), and with a negative balance in the trust account, twenty three House republicans asked President Trump not to wait. Here’s the list of material possible for declassification, and the intelligence offices who hold custodial authority over the compartmented documents. This was the original list as outlined in 2018...
Tourism Would Bolster Philippine 
Claim to Disputed South China Sea
By Ralph Jennings
voanews.com } ~ A proposal to put tourist hotels on a Philippine islet in the South China Sea could boost Manila's broader maritime sovereignty claim... as it tries to hold off its more powerful rival, China, experts say. Philippine officials may open tiny Thitu Island to hotels for tourists, Defense Secretary Delfin Lorenzana told domestic news media Tuesday. The military aims to improve a runway on the islet by year's end and later build structures for troops plus "maybe some hotels for Filipinos who would like to go there as tourists," Lorenzana was quoted saying. Thitu, home to about 100 people, would join a tiny minority of the South China Sea atolls, reefs and other land forms that allow public access such as tourism. Countries behind the tourism can strengthen their sovereignty claims by showing actual use of an islet, a criterion sometimes cited in international legal disputes. "Tourism as I understand it is a form of virtual occupation and a statement of sovereignty, because tourism means that there is legitimization of civilian activity in these so-called contested territories," said Alan Chong, associate professor at the S. Rajaratnam School of International Studies in Singapore. "It's a way of ensuring that these islands will be perpetually occupied. "Thitu stands out in the South China Sea today as one of nine Philippine-controlled features in the larger, heavily disputed Spratly Islands chain. In April, as many as 200 Chinese boats surrounded Thitu, raising alarm in the Philippines before going back out to sea. China took control from the Philippines of another disputed islet, Scarborough Shoal, in 2012. Brunei, China, Malaysia, the Philippines, Taiwan and Vietnam dispute sovereignty over all or parts of the 3.5-million-square-kilometer sea. The waterway running from Hong Kong to the island of Borneo is valued for fisheries, shipping lanes and undersea fossil fuel reserves...
A deadly mosquito-borne virus that causes 
brain swelling in humans has been 
detected in Florida
By Michelle Lou
cnn.com } ~ Florida health officials are warning of an uptick in a mosquito-borne virus known as Eastern equine encephalitis (EEE)... Several sentinel chickens tested positive for EEE, which can spread to humans via infected mosquitoes and cause brain infection and swelling, the Florida Department of Health in Orange County said in a Thursday statement. Sentinel chickens are fowl that are tested regularly for the West Nile virus and EEE. Their blood can show the presence of the diseases, but they don't suffer from the effects of the viruses. Following the positive tests for the sentinel chickens in Orange County, the health department said "the risk of transmission to humans has increased." Only about seven cases of the EEE virus in humans are reported in the US each year, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says. However, the disease can be fatal: about 30% of people who contract it die, according to the CDC. Many survivors have ongoing neurologic problems. People develop symptoms about 4 to 10 days after they are bitten by an infected mosquito, the CDC  says. Signs include sudden onset of headache, high fever, chills and vomiting. More severe symptoms include disorientation, seizures and coma. With summer in full swing, mosquitoes are buzzing around at peak populations. Officials warned people to avoid being bitten by draining standing water around their homes, covering skin with clothing or repellant, and using screens to cover doors and windows.
UK forced to disclose audits of funds used 
by PA for terrorists’ salaries
jpost.com } ~ The United Kingdom’s Information Commissioner Elizabeth Denham has ordered the Department for International Development (DFID) to disclose audit reports of accounts... into which British grant money was transferred and allegedly used to pay salaries to convicted Palestinian terrorists. The decision, signed on Friday by Jonathan Slee, senior case officer for the Information Commissioner’s Office, overturns a 2018 refusal by both the DFID and its internal reviewer to disclose these reports, following a Freedom of Information request made by UK Lawyers for Israel (UKLFI) last year. The commissioner is requiring DFID provide UKLFI with a copy of the information falling within the scope of its request within 35 days or face being sent before the High Court. “The Commissioner has concluded that there is a significant public interest in the disclosure of the information,” Slee’s letter said. On July 5, 2018, UKLFI submitted a Freedom of Information Act request to the DFID for copies of audit reports for the Palestinian Recovery and Development Program (PRDP), a World Bank multi-donor trust fund (MDTF) for the Palestinian Authority (PA), along with the terms of reference for these audits. However, the DFID refused to release this information, citing, among other reasons that relations between the UK and the PA could be harmed by such disclosure. However, according to UKLFI and now the commissioner, the harm could be greater to the British public. UKLFI said that in the period 2008 to 2015, Britain gave grant aid to the PA’s Central Treasury totaling £430.5 million, via the World Bank. The aid was untied and not earmarked for a specific project. Further, Palestinian Media Watch (PMW) disclosed documents that showed that the PA pays more than 8% of its total budget through the PA Central Treasury to fund salaries for convicted terrorists, which serve to reward and encourage terrorism. As such, it is possible that some of the funds provided by the UK were used to pay these salaries. Britain’s funding allocations were audited by the independent auditor PriceWaterhouseCoopers (PwC). According to UKLFI, PwC failed to comply with OECD Guidelines for Multinational Entities by not reporting the use of funds transferred by the World Bank to pay salaries to terrorists...  https://www.jpost.com/Israel-News/UK-forced-to-disclose-audits-of-funds-used-by-PA-for-terrorists-salaries-597087  
Democrats Just Won't Give Up Their Impeachment Bone

David Limbaugh

Many war-torn Democrats and their media cohorts are in mourning over special counsel Robert Mueller’s stunningly bad performance before Congress, and it is a wonderful thing to behold.

Take, for example, MSNBC host Joe Scarborough, who, upon watching Republicans take Mueller apart in cross-examination, asked God for forgiveness for ever having been a Republican.

So Joe, do you mean to say you are ashamed for having associated with Republicans because they asked tough questions of the man who diverted the nation’s attention for two years with a partisan hoax of gargantuan proportions? You are more comfortable lying in bed with mean-spirited Democrats, progressives, liberals and leftists who delight every day in savaging President Trump and his supporters. We understand that you are sorry you were ever a Republican, and we’re sorry, too, but could you please come up with a better reason — one that might convince more than a sliver of credulous people?

MSNBC proudly tweeted a video clip of Mourning Joe ranting against Democrats for failing to fight back against President Trump. The written portion of the tweet reads, “If you want to stop Donald Trump, it is time to … roll up your sleeves and go after him and do whatever it takes to win. If you don’t do that, you’ll have (him) for four more years.”

Well, Joe, you outdid yourself on this. With such trenchant analysis, one wonders whether MSNBC is lamenting that it ever hired you. Well, not really. You fit in perfectly there, as evidenced by the nodding heads of your co-host and guests as you were spewing forth your inanity.

In the video clip, GI Joe boasts that if he had been one of the other 16 GOP presidential candidates who Trump insulted during the primary campaign, Trump would never have been elected because he would have made it his singular mission to destroy Trump. Quite the tough guy.

Sorry, Joe, but you think you can sit there perched in your host seat and convince us that you could have done what no other Trump opponent could do? Granted, some of them lacked energy, but others brought their A-game and fought Trump toe-to-toe and still came up short. This is not to discredit Trump’s opponents, but it is to say that Smoking Joe is inhaling if he thinks he — an obviously inauthentic Republican from the jump — could have been more successful.

But the larger point is not about Scarborough’s faux machismo. It is about his obvious blindness to reality. Not only did his Republican competitors give it their best shot but Democrats have also been attacking Trump relentlessly for years now. That’s all they’ve done, to the point of abandoning any semblance of a policy agenda. To call them one-trick ponies is an insult to small horses.

Scarborough is simply throwing a tantrum — in total frustration that his now beloved Democrats are powerless to change the results of the 2016 presidential election after three years of trying. Like his fellow Democrats, Scarborough doesn’t understand that you can’t beat Trump on his own turf — the octagon. He is a UFC warrior, and they are barking Chihuahuas, as I’ve said before. It’s not just that Trump fights back; he does so more effectively than any other Republican leader since Ronald Reagan.

More and more Americans are coming to understand that Democrats have no constructive policy ideas, or if they do, they don’t respect voters enough to share them. Especially considering the president’s remarkably successful record to date, it is amazing that Democrats think riding the Trump-hatred train is all they need to regain power.

But that is indeed what we’re learning. Despite Republicans’ interception of Democrats’ Hail Mary pass to Robert Mueller, Democrats, like scentless hound dogs, are even more determined to pursue impeachment against Trump based on their false allegations that he stole an election they’ve been trying to steal for three years. They are possessed and seem to have no prospects of liberating themselves from the bonds of their self-inflicted poison.

In the meantime, President Trump will continue to pursue pro-growth, pro-life and pro-liberty policies, and those that will protect our borders and promote America’s interests on the national stage. People are starting to pay attention, as the polls show. 2020 is looking better all the time.
