TANSTAAFL

The wild and woolly shouting matches occurring in DC are nothing more than the last grunts of the GOPe. Bannon was right to get out of the White House; he can raise more hell from the outside and put as stake through the black heart of the RINO Senate.

This maneuver by Bannon at this time puts the GOPe is a bind. Those wishing not to vote on Trump’s agenda of immigration, tax cuts and ObamaCare are going to be faces with the primary season opponents who will support Trump’s agenda. The voters want it; the GOPe know this so this push into the small corner where they have to fish or cut bait is going to be highly amusing to the electorate in November this year.
What you are seeing and hearing is the call for the formation of a new Party, a third party to take the place of moribund GOP.

Bannon Declares War On GOP Establishment: “We’re Coming After All Of Them And We’re Going To Win”

On Monday’s edition of Hannity, Breitbart executive chairman and former Trump adviser Steve Bannon talked about his plan to challenge every Republican Senator up for re-election in 2018 in the primary, except Sen. Ted Cruz. Bannon said Republican incumbents have committed “economic hate crimes” against the “forgotten man.”

Bannon said he is declaring “war” on the Republican establishment and those that don’t back what President Trump ran on. He said there is a “new game in town” and promised to “cut off the oxygen” to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and stop his fundraising for establishment candidates. Bannon said any person running for the Senate in 2018 that wants his support must oppose McConnell as the Republican Leader.

The Breitbart chief gave a warning to all incumbents: “Just voting is not good enough. You have to have a sense of urgency. Nobody is safe. We are coming after all of them and we’re going to win.” [snip]

Bannon on the coalition to go after the Republican establishment:

BANNON: They have to understand. There’s a basic agenda that President Trump rand on and won. He carried states that Republicans haven’t carried in living memory — Michigan, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania. This agenda works. The American people voted for it. It’s their responsibility.

By the way, McConnell would not be Majority Leader unless Trump won in North Carolina and Missouri and Wisconsin was able to carry those Senators across the finish line. It is incumbent upon them to back President Trump’s plan but you don’t see it.

Once you saw what Corker said today, it’s what they talk about. That’s why I left the White House. Remember, I said I’m going after the Republican establishment. And we’re going to go after them. We’re going to go after them and challenge them.

HANNITY: Give me the states.

BANNON: There’s a coalition coming together. It’s going to challenge every Republican incumbent except for Ted Cruz. Whether it’s Utah, Wyoming, whether it’s in Oregon.

HANNITY: Orrin Hatch in Utah.

BANNON: Orrin Hatch in Utah. Today, Boyd Matheson, who is the chief of staff for Mike Lee came out and said he’s going to set up and an exploratory committee.

HANNITY: North Dakota.

BANNON: In North Dakota we don’t have that…

By the way, we’re going in Mississippi against Wicker.

HANNITY: Who are you going to pick? McDaniel?

BANNON: McDaniel in Mississippi.

These names are all going to come out in the next several weeks.

[Kansas Senator Jerry] Moran. [Orrin] Hatch in Utah. The chief of staff for Mike Lee said he will set up an exploratory committee. In North Dakota. In Mississippi.

Moms against everything

The rounds had barely stopped ricocheting before the Left set their hair on fire and began yowling for gun control. The following is illuminating.

Day by Day

Cognitive dissonance

Tax cuts only

 

benefit big earners

If you aren’t making any money, you aren’t paying any income taxes. Now how in hell can a tax cut affect you? All the clangor and hollering about taxes is nothing but political BS to distract you from the real issue: Those clowns in DC aren’t doing anything to solve the deficit.

If they really want to help the lower and middle classes, they would get rid of the excessive fees and taxes on the phones, Internet, tires, textiles, Federal excise taxes on coffee liquor and tobacco. Get rid of the inheritance (death) tax.

As for the Income Tax, make it a flat 15% on all income including interest and dividends; no deductions for anything. Everybody pays the 15% big earners will pay more. Progressives don’t like it because it is FAIR.

No corporate tax; they don’t pay that anyway, you do. That is passed through to you as a cost of doing business. You pay that tax when you buy the product or service. You get their tax on income from money paid out as wages and not put into the business for expansion. The rest is paid out to stockholders as dividends; that is collected in their taxes.

Can you tell me why this cannot be accomplished? There isn’t any reason except recalcitrance on the part of the likes of Sens. McCain, Corker, Murkowski, Collins and Paul. Why are these individuals reelected again and again?

We know why the Democrats won’t vote to change the system. They don’t believe it is your money.

Big Spenders

It doesn’t make any difference to which party a politician belongs, they all want to spend your money.

Republican Gov. Bruce Rauner Signs Law Forcing Illinois Taxpayers to Pay For Abortions

Illinois taxpayers will now be forced to pay for abortions under a new law signed Thursday by Republican Gov. Bruce Rauner, which mandates the procedure be covered under the state’s Medicaid programs and for all state government employees.

The new law, which was approved by the state legislature back in May, will go into effect barring a court order.

After signing the bill into law, Rauner said while he “respects those who believe abortion is morally wrong,” he believes all women should have the right to prematurely kill their unborn children if they decide it’s the best choice for them – even those who can’t afford to do so on their own.

“I do not think it’s fair to deny poor women the choice that wealthy women have.”[snip]

Of course, what Rauner conveniently omits is that all women in Illinois – whether wealthy or poor – already had the “choice” to voluntarily terminate their pregnancies well before this new law came around. What they didn’t have, however, was the state-sanctioned ability to force other people, including those who morally oppose abortion as murder, to pay for it. (emphasis added)

And it looks like Rauner’s fellow Republicans in the state legislature aren’t too happy about his decision to approve the new law, which he’d originally said he would veto. [snip]

Pro-life group Illinois Right to Life estimates the new law will result in about 12,000 more babies losing their lives through abortion each year.

 According to the Kaiser Family Foundation, only 15 other states cover abortion services under their state Medicaid programs. Oregon, which has long since provided taxpayer-funded abortions for low-income women, recently expanded their own program to force taxpayers to cover free abortions with no cost-sharing for all women in the state, including illegal aliens.

Every “SWELL” idea that the Socialists produce always forces people to enjoy the benefits.
