This insane search warrant illustrates a new era of surveillance

This insane search warrant illustrates a new era of surveillance

9 Shares

In a small town just outside of Minneapolis, a judge granted police a court order demanding that Google hand over the identity of anyone who searched for the name of a financial fraud victim.

The warrant granted to the Edina Police Department to solve a wire-fraud crime worth less than $30,000 is likely to be one of the broadest and most Orwellian attempts by a smaller law enforcement agency to demand internet user information, according to ArsTechnica.

From the tech website:

Investigators are focusing their probe on an online photo of someone with the same name of a local financial fraud victim. The image turned up on a fake passport used to trick a credit union to fraudulently transfer $28,500 out of an Edina man’s account, police said. The bogus passport was faxed to the credit union using a spoofed phone number to mimic the victim’s phone, according to the warrant application. (To protect the victim’s privacy, Ars is not publishing his name that was listed throughout the warrant signed February 1 by Hennepin County Senior Judge Gary Larson.)

The warrant demands Google to help police determine who searched for variations of the victim’s name between December 1 of last year through January 7, 2017. A Google search, the warrant application says, reveals the photo used on the bogus passport. The image was not rendered on Yahoo or Bing, according to the documents. The warrant commands Google to divulge “any/all user or subscriber information”—including e-mail addresses, payment information, MAC addresses, social security numbers, dates of birth, and IP addresses—of anybody who conducted a search for the victim’s name.

The obvious problem here is that, if Google is forced to comply with the warrant, it could potentially yield all sorts of information about innocent Americans who have nothing to do with the case in question.

As Privacy News Online noted: “While the search terms are fairly specific – the fraud victim’s name – it’s also guaranteed to catch any person who considered dating them, employing them, and so on, at a bare minimum.”

Enemies of Truth Wage War in Districts 211 and 15

Editors note:

Its many issues that school boards decide! Property Tax increases are very important. They also get involved with social engineering by approving political/media correct methods and curriculum that may be anti traditional family and or promote ideas and values that promote liberal ideology. http://willcountynews.com/2017/03/23/joliet-area-middle-school-tests-students-on-their-trump-attitudes/.

Enemies of Truth Wage War in Districts 211 and 15
Written by Laurie Higgins

While conservatives with liquefied spines avert their gaze from co-ed restrooms and locker rooms in the schools their taxes subsidize, trying to pretend this issue doesn’t matter, the Left rubs their hands together in unseemly glee, knowing they are winning their anti-science war.

If conservatives would take a gander at what’s taking place in Illinois School Districts 211 and 15, they may begin to understand the nature of the war from which too many are AWOL. And maybe understanding will lead to action, the first step of which will be to vote in the April 4th election.

District 211

As some may remember, District 211, the largest high school district in the state, made national news when the district was sued by a gender-dysphoric boy who is pretending to be a girl and sought access to the girls’ restrooms and locker room.

Putting money ahead of truth, the cowardly and/or ignorant school board and administration squealed “uncle” and agreed to allow this boy to invade the private spaces of girls, thus creating de facto co-ed restrooms and locker rooms. Adding insult to injury, they made these illicit and subversive accommodations without telling parents.

When in the girls’ locker room, this student must change in a private changing cubicle because, you know, he’s actually a boy. This requirement, however, will not long stand because the Left insists that everyone in society pretend along with gender-dysphoric persons that they are in reality the sex they are not.

The ACLU, who represented the District 211 boy, fiercely objected to the privacy stall requirement, insisting that he have unrestricted access to the girls’ locker room. The ACLU lost that skirmish, but unless taxpayers object to co-ed private spaces with the boldness, fervor, and tenacity of the left, the war will be won by the enemies of truth.

Three courageous souls have stepped into this war against science, modesty, privacy, and children’s rights: Ralph BonatzKatherine David, and Jean Forrest are running for the District 211 School Board. We need an army of men and women like these three.

District 15

One of District 211’s feeder schools, Community Consolidated School District 15 in Palatine which is an elementary and middle school district, is plagued by the same feckless leadership as District 211. After parents discovered that District 15 was secretly allowing gender-dysphoric students to use opposite-sex restrooms and locker rooms, a heated school board meeting ensued at which Superintendent Scott Thompson offered this ignorant defense of co-ed restrooms and locker rooms:

If we have a transgender student in one of our schools who wishes to use a bathroom or locker room of his/her identified gender, we have established stalls in every bathroom and privacy screens in our locker rooms for any student who wishes to use them.

If stalls and privacy screens provide sufficient separation between, for example, a gender-dysphoric boy and girls in private spaces, then why have any sex-segregated restrooms and locker rooms? Why can’t “cisgender” boys join girls in restrooms with stalls and locker rooms with privacy screens? Why should it make any difference to girls if the boys in their locker rooms wish they were girls or not? When schools prohibit “cisgender” boys from using girls’ facilities, aren’t they discriminating based on “gender identity”? Why require “transgirls” (i.e., boys) to change behind privacy screens? Doesn’t that requirement necessarily acknowledge that objective sex matters? Doesn’t it necessarily acknowledge that “transgirls” are in reality boys?

And if stalls and privacy screens provide sufficient separation between gender-dysphoric boys and girls in private spaces, then why don’t stalls and privacy screens provide sufficient separation between gender-dysphoric boys and other boys in boys’ private spaces?

Thompson falsely claimed that the district’s policy and practice are rooted in anti-discrimination laws:

The district is bound to follow federal and state laws regarding the treatment of students….Illinois law requires the school district prevent any discrimination on basis of race, color, gender, religion, national origin, language, disability, sexual orientation, age or any other legally protected characteristic (including transgender students).

Surprisingly, Thompson seems ignorant of the fact that the Illinois Human Rights Act and Title IX explicitly permit public schools to maintain separate restrooms and locker rooms for girls and boys.

Outside involvement in local affairs

Whenever the Illinois Family Institute writes about a school skirmish pertaining to homosexuality or gender dysphoria, “progressives” squawk about “outside” organizations getting “involved” in local affairs. Oddly, they never seem bothered when outside pro-sexual deviance pundits like Chicago Tribune columnist Eric Zorn or organizations like the Illinois Safe Schools Alliance or Equality Illinois get involved in local affairs. And boy, oh boy, is Equality Illinois involved in District 211.

Equality Illinois, Illinois’ most powerful pro-homosexuality/pro-biological-sex rejection organization, has a political action committee that has endorsed three lousy District 211 candidates with this doozy of a statement:

Schools should be environments where students can be who they truly are and thrive. Yet, anti-LGBTQ organizations are using our schools in their mean-spirited effort to allow discrimination against transgender students. We should not let these groups pick on transgender students with bad policy.

Word to Equality Illinois: Students who “identify” as “transgirls” are truly boys. Students who “identify” as “transboys” are truly girls. That’s a scientific fact—and we all know how much “progressives” value science.

Moreover, having sex-segregated restrooms and locker rooms does not constitute unjust discrimination, mean-spiritedness, or bullying. If it did, society should have no sex-segregated restrooms or locker rooms anywhere. Nor should schools tolerate sex-segregation by requiring objectively male students to change behind privacy screens in girls’ locker rooms. Nor should schools prohibit objectively male students who “identify” as “trans” from showering with girls.

Please take note of what Equality Illinois is saying: They are saying that parents who believe that objectively male and objectively female students should not share restrooms and locker rooms are discriminatory, mean-spirited bullies.

And that, my friends, is exactly what co-ed restroom and locker room policies teach all children.

Take Action:

  • VOTE in local school board elections.
  • DO NOT support any school-funding referenda until the following changes take place:

1.)  School choice is made available.

2.)  Elementary and middle schools stop exposing students to resources that affirm Leftist positions on homosexuality and “gender.”

3.)  High schools stop exposing students to resources that affirm Leftist positions on homosexuality and “gender” or they have students spend equal time studying “progressive” and conservative resources on these topics.

4.)  Schools adopt policies that require sex-segregated restrooms and locker rooms.

Google’s review team contractors known as “quality raters” to flag content under a new category called “upsetting-offensive.”

New guidelines for Google’s review team contractors known as “quality raters” call for them to flag content under a new category called “upsetting-offensive.”

According to the Search Engine Land blog, the guidelines for quality raters are almost 200 pages long and instruct them on how to assess website quality and whether the results they review meet the needs of those who might search for particular queries.

The new guidelines define “upsetting-offensive” content as:

  • Content that promotes hate or violence against a group of people based on criteria including (but not limited to) race or ethnicity, religion, gender, nationality or citizenship, disability, age, sexual orientation, or veteran status.
  • Content with racial slurs or extremely offensive terminology.
  • Graphic violence, including animal cruelty or child abuse.
  • Explicit how­ to information about harmful activities (e.g., how tos on human trafficking or violent assault).
  • Other types of content which users in your locale would find extremely upsetting or offensive.

Among the direct examples included in the guidelines is one about a search for Holocaust history. Two results returned from that search might be “Top 10 reasons why the Holocaust didn’t happen,” at Stormfront.org (our search did not return this site) and “The Holocaust – World War II” at History.com.

Reviewers are told to flag the Stormfront.org as “upsetting-offensive” because:

This result is a discussion of how to convince others that the Holocaust never happened. Because of the direct relationship between Holocaust denial and anti-Semitism (sic), many people would consider it offensive.

But the reviewers are told not to flag The History Channel because:

While the Holocaust itself is a potentially upsetting topic for some, this result is a factually accurate source of historical information. Furthermore, the page does not exist to promote hate or violence against a group of people, contain racial slurs, or depict graphic violence.

In other words, a Google search is supposed to only return information that is approved by court historians and contain conventional wisdom.

The problems with such an idea are legion; not the least of which is the fact that “upsetting-offensive” is such a subjective concept. And the notion that The History Channel is “a factually accurate source of historical information” is laughable, as Bob Livingston showed in “History Channel’s not-so-historical ‘Sons of Liberty’.”

Search Engine Land notes that a return receiving a flag does not necessarily mean the website will be stricken from the search or demoted from its ranking. Instead, it is to be used as information for Google’s coders to create algorithms that better spot content that should be flagged.

And remember, there are other search engines beyond Google, like Bing, Yahoo and Ask. Here is a list of the top 15 search engines by use. And if you want to search alternative sites you can use Good Gopher, which allows you to select a search of independent media, mainstream media, academia or products.

Some Mayors tell Trump no on Sanctuary Cities

Mayor tells President Trump to go fly a kite

159 Shares

The Center for American Progress (CAP), a Washington, D.C., think tank Hillary Clinton’s former campaign manager John Podesta founded, has released a new report that puts the total of sanctuary cities and counties at about 600, roughly twice previous estimates.

Since President Donald Trump’s inauguration, the mayors of the nation’s largest sanctuary cities, including Los Angeles, Chicago and San Francisco, have taken more insolent stances to defend harboring criminals. Mayors Eric Garcetti, Rahm Emanuel and Ed Lee insist that regardless of what measures the Trump administration may take, such as denying the cities federal dollars, their sanctuary status will remain inviolate. Acting on their own authority and in defiance of federal law, the 600 cities, and several states including California, will not cooperate with Immigration and Customs Enforcement to detain criminals for eventual removal.

The very concept of criminal alien sanctuaries has infuriated citizens since the bad idea first took hold. A brief history of the sanctuary city movement shows that, appropriately enough, Berkeley, Calif., was the first to pass a sanctuary resolution back in 1971. In 1979, Los Angeles followed with its controversial Special Order 40 that prohibited police officers from asking those they arrest about their immigration status. San Francisco, where seven-time convicted felon and five-time deported alien Juan Francisco Lopez-Sanchez murdered Kate Steinle, added its name to the sanctuary list in 1989. Although the 1996 Illegal Immigration Reform and Immigrant Responsibility Act specifically banned sanctuaries, such municipalities have mushroomed in total since President Clinton signed the legislation.

Some mayors have made unhinged comments in self-defense. In his reaction to President Trump’s January executive order that directed the Departments of Homeland Security and Justice to defund sanctuary cities, Middletown, Conn., Mayor Dan Drew immediately declared his city a sanctuary and said, “We don’t just take orders from the President of the United States. It won’t work that way.” Let Drew’s statement sink in: the mayor of Middletown (population 48,000) told the U.S. president to fly a kite, and expects that his insult will impress his constituents.

How Drew, Garcetti, Emanuel and Lee, along with other sanctuary advocates, will justify the bad trade-off for what CAP estimates will be an aggregate $870 million loss in federal law enforcement funding in exchange for shielding dangerous aliens is unclear. Los Angeles County, for example, has more than 10 million residents. Of those, about 1 million are aliens. The remaining 9 million citizens and legal permanent residents will be harshly critical of losing funds that would otherwise go towards public safety and economic/community development programs. California, designated a sanctuary state and already facing a $1.5 billion deficit, risks losing $240 million.

Sanctuary cities mock federal laws. Setting criminal aliens free, which sanctuary mayors approve of, guarantees more rapes, robberies, drug dealing and murders. A 2015 Center for Immigration Studies report showed that of 8,000 criminal aliens released during an eight-month period, 1,687 re-offended, were arrested 4,298 times and accumulated 7,491 new charges.

Americans overwhelmingly oppose sanctuary cities. A Harvard-Harris poll taken last month found that 80 percent of voters agreed that local authorities should be compelled to obey federal law and to report criminal aliens to ICE, a rare example of unity in a nation otherwise divided by President Trump’s immigration agenda.

Organizations and organisms

Organizations and organisms

Last week we wrote in “America’s two governments” that there is a government you can see (the politicians and judges) and the government you can’t see, which we called the Deep State.

That there exists a nebulous group or groups actively working in concert against the wishes of the American people created questions among some readers who wondered how such a thing could function without some leader or central authority coordinating its efforts.

The problem in grasping the concept of the existence of the unseen forces operating to sow chaos and discord and pulling the strings of visible government stems from the way we are conditioned and controlled from birth. We are taught from early on that the U.S. has a “democratic” political system and that we elect representatives and a president through our vote. It is hammered into us that the political system offers us a choice and “our vote matters.” We are taught that those whom we elect run government for us.

When we believe a “fact” long enough it is difficult for us to grasp or even contemplate information outside the established parameters we have accepted all our lives as truth. The mind simply cannot process information that conflicts with previously accepted data. Prior conditioning is difficult to challenge.

Psychologists call this quirk of human nature cognitive dissonance. It means the rejection of information not in harmony with previous beliefs.

Our goal is to share with you concepts that you can use in your own evaluation of reality in today’s world. Oftentimes these concepts run counter to conventional wisdom and are esoteric. To see and understand with the five senses is not enough. Wisdom can only come to us by discerning the spirit of subterfuge. In this case we must understand the difference between an organization and an organism.

An organization is a legal, formal structure visible in whole and in part with expressed name and purpose limited by national and international law. People focus on organizations. This focus is a diversion from reality.

The political parties are organizations. The American legal system is an organization. They function based on legal parameters in the visible realm.

The Deep State is an organism. An organism is invisible. It is highly complex with parts separate in function but mutually dependent and integrated. It is not formal. It may function legally or illegally within the law or above the law. It is never identified as to true name and purpose. It has no ethnic, social, legal or national responsibilities or restrictions. The subterfuge of an organism is its doctrine or its system of indoctrination.

It is a spiritual phenomenon. It is characterized by its consistency of words, phrases and concepts which mold the public mind into conformity in areas of religion, politics and economics. An organism is a myth or fiction created by esoteric power to forge or force public policy and conformity of thought. “Public policy” and conformity are instruments of state or government power.

Let us reveal the subterfuge of an organism. The so-called French Revolution doctrine of liberty, equality and fraternity is a myth, a fiction and a self-evident contradiction. It is impossible to have liberty and equality. Yet, the unthinking masses still today accept this as the foundation of American “democracy.”

On the contrary, the concept of human equality is basic to the destruction of human liberty. Equality is the organism of racism/sexism as promoted by the government. Its purpose is the opposite of human liberty. It is the systematic subversion of human liberty. Further and deeper conclusions are that when we hold two contradictory thoughts such as liberty and equality, the result is double mindedness and unstable thinking (see James 1:8) leading to greater receptivity to the power of suggestion. The closer we come to total acceptance of the doctrine of human equality, the closer we come to slavery. In reality, human equality is an impossibility in the real world. As an instrument of government propaganda, it is the perfect organism.

The doctrine or organism of the French Revolution was well conceived as the foundation of modern internationalism and the world state or New World Order.

It takes generations for a doctrine or organism to be accepted without question. Today, the doctrine or organism of the French Revolution can no better be expressed than in the public school system of America. Once an individual goes through the public school system, as well as organized religion, he is a mature manifestation of the system and practically insulated from reality and original inquiry. Chances are great that he will live his life a fiction.

An organization is not necessarily separate from an organism. It is the doctrine or organism that comes out of an organization that commands our focus. For example, organized religion is presented as religion but it is operative as a political organism simply because organized religion is one of the main support pillars of the political order.

The mundane world is like high decibel noise producing confusion and disorientation. Consequently, the masses go through time and space subverted to the status of automatons. To rise above this we must be aware of organisms. We must be able to recognize them, their power over the mind and their capacity to mold our thought processes into conformity.

The power of the establishment is derived from its capacity to produce conformity of thought among the people. This is psychological warfare which operates above the intelligence of most people.

In our world and time, the people are subverted with organisms. This relieves the ruling establishment of the burden and risk of the police state. It also leaves human resources unencumbered, allowing for full productive capacity. Happy slaves produce and conform. Fear not those who are able to destroy our bodies. Rather, fear those who destroy our souls and our spirit of discernment.

Absolute power is the power of spiritual subterfuge. It is an organism.

Your understanding of an organism will give you the spiritual power and discernment to know the mind of demented men who believe that they have a divine right to subvert your mind and body to the level of an animal. Your understanding of an organism will give you the power of predictability.

Your understanding of an organism will give you the power and spiritual discernment to disregard completely politics and political labels. You will view all politics and all political parties as an instrument or organism of power to confuse and disorient the public mind about human liberty. The purpose of politics is to cause the people to imagine freedom and human liberty even as they are enslaved.

Politics is a universal organism. It is designed to shield the Deep State from public view as it subverts the will of the people and steals our liberty and wealth.

Obama’s Watergate

Obama’s Watergate

142 Shares

 

When Donald Trump tweeted that President Barack Obama had wiretapped Trump Tower and Trump’s telephone lines, it was clear what he meant.

No one who saw or heard about Trump’s tweets thought he meant Obama had donned a ninja suit, snuck up outside Trump Tower in the dead of night, attached a bug to the phone and sat there for days listening in with headphones.

The propaganda media, leftist dissemblers and Deep State puppets jumped quickly to make it appear that’s precisely what Trump meant in order to make Trump appear deranged and out of touch for making such a claim. Even House Speaker Paul Ryan (corporatist NeverTrumper – Wisconsin) said, “No such wiretap existed.” Both Democrats and Republicans insisted Trump apologize to Obama for making the charge.

The word “wiretap” once had a specific meaning. When people had telephones that communicated by transmitting data via wires, spooks had to physically connect a listening device to the wires to listen in on the calls. For a wiretap to be legal, a warrant was required.

This changed in the age of wireless communications. Now the word “wiretap” refers to electronic surveillance of all sorts. And there’s a lot of it.

I’ve been writing for more than 20 years about the government’s ability – and propensity — to scarf up electronic communications like a Shop-Vac® sucking up sawdust in a carpenter shop. You can see excerpts of some of those original reports in “Privacy News,” “The two hands of Big Brother: Losing our liberties update,”  “To destroy your privacy, to destroy your life” and “The U.S. National Security Agency.”

In 1988 reports surfaced that outlined how under project ECHELON the U.S. National Security Agency was partnering with intelligence services in Great Britain, Australia, Germany, Japan and even Communist China to tap into worldwide telecommunications networks. The Cleveland Plain Dealer revealed that the system had been used to tap U.S. Senator Strom Thurmond’s calls without a warrant. The report was based on testimony from an employee of defense contractor Lockheed Missiles and Space Corporation (a division of Lockheed Martin) who turned whistleblower to reveal the company’s “black” U.S. intelligence programs operating through that company.

This type of surveillance has continued apace, as revealed by Edward Snowden and other whistleblowers, though it is much more sophisticated than anyone can imagine. We know from media reports that intelligence agencies monitored the communications and computers of members of Congress and a number of journalists under Obama.

Now a new whistleblower has emerged revealing more of the clandestine government spying during the Obama years: NSA and CIA contractor Dennis Montgomery.

Montgomery left the two spying agencies with 47 hard drives and 600 million pages of information – much of it classified – revealing what is apparently illegal and unconstitutional spying on prominent Americans like the chief justice of the Supreme Court, other justices, 156 judges, prominent businessmen like Donald Trump and others. In a paper put out by Judicial Watch, which is representing Montgomery, Montgomery claimed to have informed the House Intelligence Committee about the information he had, but the committee was uninterested. It had this information prior to FBI Director James Comey’s and NSA Director Michael Rogers’ testimony before the committee.

During thier testimony, chief spooks Comey and Admiral Rogers lied, dissembled and parsed, dancing around Trump’s claims like they were Ginger Rogers and Fred Astaire.

We know from mainstream media reports that last summer investigators sought a FISA warrant to give legal imprimatur for electronic surveillance of Trump, and were denied. They later went back to the FISA court and received a warrant to surveil Trump associates. Comey admitted that Trump has been under investigation for Russian ties for most of a year.

MSM reports revealed that Michael Flynn’s communications with the Russian ambassador were tapped, though the claim is Flynn was just caught up in standard surveillance of a Russian VIP.

Multiple U.S. and likely British spy agencies were investigating Trump. This includes electronic surveillance in all its many forms. No FISA warrant was needed specifically to listen in on Trump and his transition team members (see how they captured Flynn). All that was needed was a FISA warrant on a foreign national one of those people may talk to in the future. With that, Comey, etc., could with a straight face say that no wiretapping of Trump was taking place.

During the campaign, both Obama and Hillary made subtle and not-so-subtle claims that Trump was working with Russians. If this was going on they wouldn’t know it unless Obama’s spooks were listening in on Trump and Trump Team communications and sharing it with top administration officials. If it were not going on then Obama, the witch from Chappaqua and the MSM just made it up from whole cloth.

On his way out the door, Obama made it easier for the various intelligence agencies to share the captured information. In drips and drabs, it has since been leaked to the press.

Watergate stemmed from the burglary of Democrat headquarters during a presidential campaign. Trump Towers was essentially Republican HQ for the presidential race.

Obama’s spooks broke into Republican HQ electronically in order to grab dirt on Trump, and shared what they learned with Obama, the Clinton campaign and the media in order, first, to defeat Trump; and second, to delegitimize Trump’s presidency and find dirt to use to try and force him out of office.

Obama, through his surrogates, has denied it happened. But Obama, through his surrogates, certainly wiretapped Trump. And Obama knew about it.

This is Obama’s Watergate.

Obamacare lives/Ryancare is pulled from a vote/ Maybe a better Citizencare plan can come

Statement from the Rockford Teaparty March 25, 2017

Ahhh the good ole days when we knew who our opposition was…That was just about 6 short months ago when Obama still held the reigns of power in Washington and across the nation. We knew we could all rally around a common opponent politically. Now we are much less clear as we have finger pointing and name calling within the ranks of what the left wing likes to call Trump Land.

Over the past 8 years House Republicans like Adam Kinzinger voted 60 times to have a full out repeal of Obamacare. It was a repeal and replace bill that they sent. It was full repeal. They knew it would never pass the powerful veto pen and so they were safe. They were able to come back to their temporary homes in their districts and brag about their bravery.

Yesterday their bravery turned into what appears to be fake wounds and expectations they’ll all get purple hearts for the struggle. The Republican Repeal and Replace bill was pulled from the House Floor and one of the first Press Releases to come out was from none other than Adam Kinzinger who began hurling bombs at what is known as a block of Conservative Congressmen known as the “Freedom Caucus.”

He said, “The Freedom Caucus saved Obamacare.”

The reality is that the Freedom Caucus stood by their principles and saved the American People from a horrible bill, one which Adam Kinzinger and Paul Ryan pushed in contradiction to the 60 votes in the house they had previously taken to repeal Obamacare.

The rally cry amongst this cabal of Ryan/Kinzinger Republicans was that there would be three phases of replacing Obamacare. Three phases that we were told “Trust us” we will do them. When was the last time you remember the House Republicans doing anything they said they would do? For 8 years all they had to do to end Obamacare was to defund it. They instead threw up ceremonial repeal bills to get re-elected.

The just now dead Repeal and Replace bill had a number of components to it that the Freedom Caucus Objected to.

1. It would have raised your premiums and not lowered them
2. It would have kept the Obamacare mandate in a different version but you would still be forced to pay for it and f you did not you would be penalized on your taxes at the end of the year.
3. It did nothing to reduce the size of deductibles.
4. It did not address some key components such as how to provide a market place solution except to further empower Insurance Companies.
5. There was no ability to obtain health coverage from Associations which is one of the freest and most liberating market place solutions because it allows you to own your policy with a group as opposed to tying it to your employer.

For these reasons and many more Rand Paul coined the Repeal and Replace bill term “Obamacare-Lyte.”

It was a horrible bill that even Kinzinger admitted was something that Democrats would like and therefore they needed to have a bill that they would vote for. It was a bill he believed was a moderate bill with many compromises.

This is a failure that Trump owns ultimately since he has proclaimed far and wide his superior negotiating skills. Yet he was unable to negotiate within the party he leads a satisfactory bill to replace the disaster we have all been burdened with.

Trump enjoyed the Tea Party support far and wide under the banner that he would have it repealed and replaced within 100 days. Now he is saying he is moving on and won’t address it again. Sorry but if that happens he will and should lose the support of many millions of Americans who trusted him to make this happen. Lets hope he will do the thing he said he would do otherwise America will truly be in for a rough ride for the next four years until he is voted out of office for this massive failure.
