Senate Democrats and the NEA Teachers’ Union are doing their best to prevent school choice advocate Betsy DeVos from becoming Education Secretary. The Chicago Tribune reports that her confirmation hearings have “alternated between interrogation and crass disparagement. DeVos tried to answer loaded policy questions, mostly from Democrats, only to be interrupted by senators whose aim was to discredit her qualifications. Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) waved off DeVos after the Tuesday evening hearing, refusing to shake her hand.”
What could be worse than Hitler and destroying planet Earth? Clearly nothing. So the establishment media, becoming amusingly less coherent on a near-daily basis since last month’s elections, has fallen into a feverish hysteria. Regardless of the fact that Donald Trump has never been a conservative nor any kind of political ideologue at all, and despite the fact that none of the people he has selected for cabinet positions thus far even donated to his campaign (most didn’t even support him), CNN and the lefty press wants you to know that you have elected Adolf Hitler.
Like Nancy Devos, Jeff Sessions, Steve Bannon, James Mattis, and other presidential nominees who aren’t leftists intent on central planning and social engineering, Dr. Ben Carson is now getting his media punishment too. An African-American who grew up in desperate poverty in the ghettos of Detroit and Boston, whose mother worked three jobs, and who escaped being poor through hard work and determination, is a “disturbing” choice for secretary of Housing and Urban Development.
This election will determine the fate of our nation. With Donald Trump we have a chance, and it is only that. Over the past few years we have learned to our shock and dismay just how corrupt and out of touch our elected officials really are. They have an agenda and it does not include the American people, except in extracting as much of our resources as possible. They are a powerful force. I don’t know if Donald Trump can overcome it, but I do know that no one else can.
So how’s your health insurance these days? Better than it was five years ago? Less expensive, as the president promised? Procedures and prescriptions covered more comprehensively? We thought not. Barack Obama was advised by his handlers not to make these promises in 2009, but he did it anyway. Not only was the Affordable Care Act built on lies told to the public, it was actually designed to fail. But why would anyone do that? Because it’s difficult to pass a bill publicly that creates socialized health care outright. Much easier to create a temporary diversion, Obamacare, that promises the world but delivers little to nothing on those promises, then “rescue” the failed system by ushering it quickly and stealthily (non-democratically) into a single-payer system when the planned system goes into a life support crisis.
Perspicacious observers accurately predicted at the time that Obamacare – which was passed without a single republican vote in either chamber – was intentionally designed to fail and was never more than a feint to distract attention from the real, though unstated, goal of moving to a single-payer system, the holy grail of socialist central planners where health care is “free”. And now that Obamacare is completely unraveling, the lies that were told to sell this debacle to the American people are becoming exposed.
This open letter was submitted by a reader of Ann Corcoran’s invaluable Refugee Resettlement Watch blog yesterday in anticipation of Donald Trump’s visit to that state on Monday. Written by a grandmother who’s lived in the state long enough to watch it decline from the auto capital of the world to a third world country pumped with resettled, unvetted Muslims on welfare or in low wage jobs, is highly worth reading.
