Liberals: I Don't Need Your Protection From A Statue

C. Mason Weaver
by Mason Weaver: “I resign!” This is the only thing President Trump could say to please the press. There are no words to soothe them, no debates to sway them, because they are dishonest. We do not have a racial problem in America. This is multiculturalism, which separates us, and “diversity,” which divides us. This is the old “separate but equal” crowd.

Everyone relax. We are not heading for a civil war unless you mean true Americans getting tired of being manipulated and bullied. Black folks are killing each other in the streets every night, and you want to take down a Confederate monument? “Symbolism over Substance” is getting psychotic.

Let’s back up a step for a reality check. Why should it be illegal to be a racist? What can a racist do to me? Why should it be my business if a racist wanted to walk down the street and express hatred for me? And why on earth should the government make them stop?

Hey, liberals, black folks are NOT the pets of America. You cannot make us sit up and bark by pulling our chains. We are NOT The White Man’s Burden, and you are NOT responsible for us. I know you liberals think you are superior but nice, and just want to help the underprivileged slaves be more comfortable in their misery. I know how much you hate me and other independent, free-thinking black men who arrogantly reject your care. It’s OK, white liberals, you need not protect me from a statue. I can handle being in the shadow of a monument.

The real racists are those Americans, white and black, who believe I am helpless, defenseless and incapable to stand in the presence of racist white people unless I have my white handlers and black tribal chiefs protecting me. To believe I cannot stand the pressure of being spoken to with hate, to think I cannot survive competing or standing up to mean white people, is condescending, racist and arrogant. Who determines what’s mean, hateful, harmful or intolerant? This unnatural fear of others has given us safe spaces, the “thought” police and weak citizens.

I know what a racist is. One tried to kill me 47 years ago. That attack left me permanently disabled and in constant pain. I have seen the face of real racism, and I know how dangerous racists are. But a racist being a racist is no threat to me. If the racist tries to burn a cross on my lawn, I would not need police protection … he would. I am not a helpless man requiring my government mandate you treat me nicely. That would only result in all of us being treated harshly by our government.

I did not protest, demonstrate or write the book “It’s OK to Leave the Plantation” to bring more Americans under the government slave-management system. We should not be better managed; we should be free to hurt each other’s feelings.

Most of us go about our daily lives around each other with no racial problems. We work together, shop, have lunch, ride the bus and live with each other. All day long we see each other and witness no racial tension. So why, after a full day of seeing the opposite, do we go home, turn in the television and witness a nation we have not recognized all day? Why would we believe the news instead of our own eyes?

Racial tensions only exist on the evening news. You will see reality tomorrow as you go about your day. They want us afraid to speak to each other, distrust the motives of each other and prejudge the character of each other based on the news, instead of our personal experiences with each other.

I know the Confederacy is part of the “Southern Culture,” and I admit not knowing what that really means. Why would poor white men fight for a system that kept them broke and unemployed? The Civil War was the North against poor white people trying to save the lifestyle of rich white people. With slaves doing most of the work, having most of the jobs, skills and expertise, it seems strange to get so many hard-working white Southerners to support their own poverty. But not understanding it does not make me want to restrict it.

So, Trump has not used media-approved language? It is obviously a hyped-up attempt to continue branding Trump. It is frustrating, but not effective. The general public is not concerned that Trump did not please the press. The general public is upset about the organized attacks on our culture and the “make believe issues” fueling them.

Mob rule will NOT dictate policy. Gang violence will NOT silence speech! The corrosive, bullying media will NOT shame us. However, you do NOT have freedom of speech at my doorstep. There is no right for you to protest me as a citizen. It is illegal for you to conspire to close down a freeway in protest, keeping me from getting to work. You should be arrested for planning to attack citizens with clubs. Paying someone to burn State and private property is criminal.

The police are hired to protect, enforce and guard over society. Any order to “stand down” for political reasons should be dealt with as a criminal manner. I call on President Trump to withhold federal funds from municipalities that order police to retreat or simply stand by and watch as citizens are being attack and property is being destroyed. Rioters and looters should be arrested, covicted and sentenced to jail. Civilians should be able to sue organizers for damages, and the funding sources of these groups should be investigated as a criminal organizations.

Fly your Confederate flag, salute your Nazi heroes, and honor your past slave holders. It has no effect on me because we won. “WE THE PEOPLE” defeated every foe with ideas, principles and force, not by taking down symbols.

Sessions vs. Sanctuary Cities, Trump vs. Flake, NARAL's Disgusting Attack

by Gary Bauer, Contributing AuthorSessions vs. Sanctuary Cities -  The hate we saw in Charlottesville over the weekend overshadowed another weekend of death in the city of Chicago. Thirty people were shot and nine were killed.

Many of these deaths are the result of drug gangs fighting each other. Tragically, all too often innocent victims get caught in the crossfire. Sunday, two worshippers at a black church were gunned down.

There is a complete breakdown of the rule of law and respect for life in Chicago, and the victims overwhelmingly are minorities. Attorney General Jeff Sessions yesterday condemned that breakdown of the rule of law, and he reminded Chicago's leaders that their first obligation is to protect their citizens and to obey the law. Instead, these left-wing politicians have put politically correct dogma first.

During a speech in Miami, Florida, Sessions blasted Chicago's lawlessness and contrasted Chicago's soaring murder rate to that of Miami's, which rescinded its sanctuary city policies. Here are some excerpts of the attorney general's remarks:

"In Chicago -- a city with almost exactly the same . . . population as Miami-Dade -- more than 433 people have been murdered since the beginning of the year. More than three times as many as Miami-Dade. Last year, Chicago's 2.7 million residents experienced more murders than the 12.5 million people who live in New York and Los Angeles -- combined. . .

"The most fundamental duty of government is to ensure the safety and liberty of its people. Respect for the rule of law has broken down. In Chicago, their so-called 'sanctuary' policies are just one sad example. . .

"Rather than acknowledge soaring murder counts . . . Chicago's mayor has chosen to sue the federal government. He complains that our focus on enforcing the law would require a 'reordering of law enforcement practice in [the city].'

"But that's exactly the point! For the sake of their city, Chicago's leaders need to recommit to policies that punish criminals instead of protecting them. They need to protect their citizens and not the criminals. . .

"The Department of Justice will not concede a single block or street corner in the United States to lawlessness or crime. Nor will we tolerate the loss of innocent life because a handful of jurisdictions believe that they are above the law."
Trump vs. Flake -  Arizona Senator Jeff Flake is one of the most endangered incumbents in the country. His approval rating is a "whopping" 18%.

It's no mystery why. He has supported amnesty for illegal immigrants. He almost voted for Obama's nuclear deal with Iran, but the intervention of Christians United For Israel and other groups made him reconsider.

He recently came out with a new book in which he embraced globalism and trade policies that have gutted the American heartland.

In interviews, Flake has regularly attacked President Trump, saying that the future of the Republican Party is not the coalition that prevailed in 2016. Really? As the saying goes, it is hard to argue with success.

I guess Sen. Flake is one of those Republicans who seem to prefer being in the minority, following the lead of Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer.

Many insiders in Washington feel that Flake cannot win the general election. It seems the White House has concluded the same thing.

After Dr. Kelli Ward, a former Arizona state senator, entered the GOP primary against Flake, major conservative donors stepped up to support her campaign. In an effort to save the seat, President Trump this morning tweeted: "Great to see that Dr. Kelli Ward is running against Flake Jeff Flake, who is WEAK on borders, crime and a non-factor in Senate. He's toxic!"

This is a stunning development. That Donald Trump would have tough words for an opponent is not surprising. That a sitting president would oppose the reelection of a senator from his own party is unheard of.

Once again, we are seeing conventional wisdom thrown out the window, and I suspect many frustrated conservatives find that very refreshing!

NARAL's Disgusting Attack -  The left's attempt to exploit the violence in Charlottesville continues. The radical pro-abortion group NARAL is desperately trying to link some of the white supremacists who organized Saturday's protest with the pro-life movement and the March for Life.

That is a disgusting smear of the men and women of faith who stand up for the most innocent and defenseless in our society -- unborn babies in the womb.

Sadly, this character assassination is typical of the left today. I know the good people who lead the March for Life, and I am proud to stand with them.

Jeanne Mancini, president of March for Life, tweeted in response to NARAL's attack, "The foundation of the #prolife movement is respect 4 the inherent dignity of every person regardless of race, creed, disability, politics, etc."
Of course, she is absolutely right. The pro-life movement rejects racism because we believe all life is sacred, created in the image of God. It is the left that cannot name one abortion it would prohibit, not even abortions performed solely on the basis of the race or gender of the baby. Now that is extremism.

God's Not Dead, He's Wrestling the State

by Ross Dubberly: History is filled with short-lived republics and democracies. It seems like freedom is ephemeral while tyranny is inevitable. Paradoxically though, human nature is responsible for both the deep yearn for freedom and the ushering in of tyranny. Human nature is complex, contradictory, and at times, dangerous. Throughout the ages, there has been only one effective suppressor of the primitive, barbaric, and immoral aspects of human nature—religion.

Religion has allowed for freedom to abound and civil societies to flourish. There will always be moral atheists and immoral religious people; but generally, when a body politic is free, only religion and accountability to a transcendent God can ensure evasion of debauchery, atrocity, and moral chaos. Religion also has traditionally given people meaning, purpose, and a contentment that is crucial to warding off feelings of resentment, anger, jealousy, and malcontent, which threaten the civil society. While secular government protects the civil society, an irreligious, secular people endanger it.

Secularism creates a vacuum in the individual. God and religion have traditionally satisfied the human being’s greatest psychological hunger—the hunger for meaning. As Dr. Victor E. Frankl points out, meaning is something humanity craves as much as food, air, or water. Humans cannot survive without meaning and purpose in their lives. And as members of society become more secular, their meaning is increasingly found in causes or movements that inevitably involve the enlargement of the State.

For example, environmentalism, globalism, material equality, state-controlled healthcare, etc., are no longer just political positions. They are now movements that inspire passion and give the empty secularist meaning, and prevent his psychological and emotional atrophy. The problem is, however, that even if the desired outcomes of each of the aforementioned issues were achieved, the secularist would not be satisfied. Some new “issue” would present itself and also deserve a religious-like devotion, regardless of the “issue’s” authenticity. And while the state expands, and liberty contracts.

The founding fathers recognized that liberty could be dangerous when in the hands of an immoral, unscrupulous mobocracy, which is why they all emphasized the importance of religion to a free society. As John Adams once wrote, “Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.”

Freedom and the state constantly vie with one another for dominance because one can't increase without the decrease of the other. And as God's role in society becomes smaller and less pervasive, the state becomes larger and more ubiquitous. This is huge a problem. As GK Chesterton once said, “When men choose not to believe in God, they do not thereafter believe in nothing, they then become capable of believing in anything.”

That “anything” is an imminent threat to limited government, freedom, and republicanism.

Rise of the Antifa Iconoclasts

. . . The Left seeks to destroy America's history because it finds America offensive
by Thomas Gallatin: In the wake of the Charlottesville riot, several cities witnessed mobs of people tearing down Confederate memorial statues. Those who tore down these monuments justified their actions by claiming to be fighting against racism and white nationalism. In his press conference Tuesday, Donald Trump wondered where the call for monument removals would end: “Is George Washington next week? And Thomas Jefferson the week after?” The answer may be sooner than that.

On Wednesday, professional race-baiter Al Sharpton was asked by Charlie Rose, “Should they take down the Jefferson Memorial?” Sharpton responded, “When you look at the fact that public monuments are supported by public funds, you’re asking me to subsidize the insult of my family. I would repeat that the public should not be paying to uphold somebody who has had that kind of background. You have private museums, you have other things that you may want to do there.”

Let’s be abundantly clear: Racism is wrong. Those who justify condemning, excluding and hating others based solely and primarily due to their race or ethnicity are wrong. Those who hold views that espouse one’s race to be of greater significance than their common humanity with other races are wrong. This is why both white supremacists and Black Lives Matter activists are wrong. They have chosen to see and interpret everything through the lens of race rather than the reality of our shared common humanity. They have chosen to highlight both real and perceived grievances as justification for holding racist views, and they justify animosity toward anyone who rejects these race-based perspectives.

The Left for years has steadily fueled a grievance culture, especially among racial minority groups — all for political gain. But now this grievance culture is threatening to set the nation on fire, in some cases literally. Various ideas and symbols are and can be offensive, but when people are taught that to be offended is to be oppressed, people will rise up to fight. Now we have leftists calling for removal of symbols of America’s history, all because they have chosen to identify these symbols with only negative and offensive ideas. The truth is that America’s Founders were flawed men, as all individuals are, but they worked to produce the greatest, freest country on earth. And Americans today and people around the world have benefited immeasurably from their contributions. Eradicating their history and historical contributions to appease ill-conceived notions of oppression is to do violence to history and truth.

Repudiated at the Polls, National Democrats Continue to Push Gun Control

NRA-ILA: Recent weeks have seen a heated debate involving national Democratic Party figures over how to approach the issue of abortion in a manner that would allow the party to be more competitive in portions of the country dominated by Donald Trump and the Republicans in the 2016 election. Such soul-searching is to be expected for a party that does not hold either chamber of Congress or the presidency. However, one issue that appears to be off the table in any Democratic recalibration is the national party’s zealous support for further gun restrictions.

This intransigence was highlighted by two recent pieces of radical gun control legislation.

First, on July 27, Rep. Anthony Brown (D-Md.), along with 12 cosponsors, introduced H.R.3458. The text of the legislation has yet to be made available to Government Publishing Office, but is described as a bill
To require certain semiautomatic pistols manufactured, imported, or sold by Federal firearms licensees to be capable of microstamping ammunition, and the prohibit [sic] the removal, obliteration, or alteration of the microstamped code or microstamping capability of a firearm.An accompanying press release noted that “The bill prohibits federal firearms licensees from manufacturing, selling, or transferring semiautomatic handguns, unless those handguns are capable of microstamping ammunition or face gradual fines.” An earlier version of the bill introduced in the 110th Congress made clear that this restriction would apply to all semiautomatic handguns manufactured or imported after the effective date of the legislation.

Microstamping is a flawed and expensive method in which certain firearms components, typically the firing pin, are etched with a serial number that is transferred to an ammunition cartridge when the gun is fired. NRA and others have identified numerous problems with this technology, including the fact that it is easily defeated with common hand tools or repeated use of the firearm, and would require an onerous system of registering firearm components. Further, the Sporting Arms and Ammunition Manufacturers’ Institute has estimated the cost of implementing this technology at $200 per firearm.

Not to be outdone, on July 28, Rep. Donald M. Payne (D-N.J.), along with 16 cosponsors, introduced
H.R.3613, “To authorize the Director of the Bureau of Justice Assistance to make grants to States, units of local government, and gun dealers to conduct gun buyback programs, and for other purposes” to the tune of $360 million.

To support squandering federal taxpayer dollars on gun buyback (more appropriately termed turn-in) programs in 2017 reveals a fanatical hostility towards guns and a profound disregard for sound public policy.

Since 1998, the U.S. Department of Justice has understood that gun turn-ins are ineffective. A National Institute of Justice document from that year titled, “Preventing Crime: What Works, What Doesn’t, What’s Promising” put gun turn-ins at the top of its list of “What Doesn’t Work.” The NIJ reiterated this point in a 2013 memo that concluded, “Gun buybacks are ineffective as generally implemented.” Further, some of the most radical anti-gun researchers, including Jon Vernick from the Michael Bloomberg-bankrolled Johns Hopkins Center for Gun Policy and Research, have admitted that turn-ins do not diminish violent crime.

Perhaps inspired by her Democratic colleagues in the House of Representatives, on August 10, Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) took to Twitter to call for a renewal of the federal “assault weapons” ban. The entire “assault weapon” concept is a creation of anti-gun activists who used the term to create confusion after their attempts to ban handguns had failed. Charles Krauthammer, a proponent of gun confiscation, wrote “the only real justification [for the assault weapon ban] is not to reduce crime but to desensitize the public to the regulation of weapons in preparation for their ultimate confiscation.” As Krauthammer predicted, the ban on so-called “assault weapons” had little effect on crime, but that has not stopped gun-control proponents like Senator Harris from calling for its renewal.

After Al Gore’s defeat in the 2000 presidential election, the national Democratic Party made a concerted effort to soften their position on gun control in order to be more competitive in parts of the country where voters put significant value on their Second Amendment rights. In his book, “My Life,” Bill Clinton pointed to NRA and gun control as a factor in Gore’s defeat.

Democrats began to tolerate candidates that deviated from left-wing anti-gun orthodoxy. In a 2005 Boston Globe article titled “Democrats Recast Gun Control Image,” then Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee Chair Rahm Emanuel was quoted as saying that their candidates “[have] got to reflect their districts.” In the three presidential election cycles following Gore’s defeat, the Democrats recognized Americans’ Second Amendment rights in their platform. President Barack Obama conspicuously avoided the issue until he had secured a second term in office, leading the Brady Campaign to issue him an “F” rating in 2010.

Despite Bill Clinton’s repeated warnings, the national Democratic Party in 2016 flouted gun owners at every turn. Hillary Clinton endorsed Australia-style gun confiscation, repeatedly denounced the U.S. Supreme Court’s ruling in District of Columbia v. Heller, and when pressed, refused to acknowledge that the Second Amendment protects an individual right to keep and bear arms. Democratic National Committee Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz railed against guns to Democratic delegates. In the midst of the presidential election campaign, Democrat representatives threw a gun control-inspired tantrum on the floor of the U.S. House. The national Democratic Party left no doubt that the Second Amendment was on the ballot in 2016.

And once again, the Democrats suffered a devastating defeat. In the immediate aftermath, NBC’s Chuck Todd credited NRA for giving Trump “a big assist” in his victory. Months later, political commentator Fred Barnes would write, “There are many claimants to the honor of having nudged Donald Trump over the top in the presidential election. But the folks with the best case are the National Rifle Association and the consultants who made their TV ads.”

NRA is happy to take credit for helping to defeat Hillary Clinton and for the election of pro-gun lawmakers across the country, but our efforts would not have been so salient had our opposition not so fully embraced the anti-gun agenda.

NRA is a nonpartisan organization and we continue to endorse members of any party who work to defend American gun owners. As the current marginalized national Democratic Party grapples with its agenda moving forward, it would do well to learn from its past and curtail their attacks on the Second Amendment. Wise Democratic leaders will recognize that they have been here before and that abandoning their anti-gun ambitions is an important component of their path back to power. However, with Democratic House members still offering microstamping and gun turn-in bills, there is little evidence of such wisdom.

Now They Want To Tear Down A George Washington Statue

George Washington Monument, Chicago, IL
by Daniel Greenfield: The left has no natural stopping point. It keeps on going and going. Whatever its current stated goal is, it's not a stopping point, only the next step. And yes, it doesn't stop with Lee. It won't even stop with Washington for that matter.

But yes, George is next on the statue hit list.

A bronze statue of George Washington on horseback stands at the corner of 51st and King Drive, at the northwest entrance to Washington Park.

Bishop James Dukes, pastor of Liberation Christian Center, said he wants the statue gone, and he wants George Washington’s name removed from the park.
And he's got a great idea for the next step.He said he’s not necessarily asking the city rename the parks altogether. He suggested Washington Park could be named after former Mayor Harold Washington, and Jackson Park could be named after civil rights leader Rev. Jesse Jackson or singer Michael Jackson.That's a tough one. Should Chicago name a park after a pedophile or a racist?

The Pentecostal Liberation Christian Center has had its own local issues. All sorts of issues.

Aretha Hence filed a lawsuit July 28 in the Cook County Circuit Court against Liberation Christian Center and James E. Dukes, alleging breach of contract.

According to the complaint, Hence made four loans to Dukes for Liberation Christian Center on multiple occasions in 2007 and 2009 for plumbing work, legal fees and the church's mortgage, but has only been repaid about $1,000.

Hence further claims she lent Dukes $75,000 that he allegedly told her would only need to sit in his bank account for a bank to see in order to make the decision to grant the church a mortgage. The suit states Dukes on Nov. 18 made a sworn testimony the loans were not gifts and the church would pay Hence back.

Both the church and Dukes are accused of breach of contract. Duke is also accused of fraud, fraudulent misrepresentation and negligent misrepresentation.
Maybe the park should be renamed after him?

When Liberals Club People, It's With Love In Their Hearts

Editorial Cartooon by AF Branco
by Ann Coulter: Apparently, as long as violent leftists label their victims "fascists," they are free to set fires, smash windows and beat civilians bloody. No police officer will stop them. They have carte blanche to physically assault anyone they disapprove of, including Charles Murray, Heather Mac Donald, Ben Shapiro, me and Milo Yiannopoulos, as well as anyone who wanted to hear us speak.

Even far-left liberals like Evergreen State professor Bret Weinstein will be stripped of police protection solely because the mob called him a "racist."

If the liberal shock troops deem local Republicans "Nazis" -- because some of them support the duly elected Republican president -- Portland will cancel the annual Rose Festival parade rather than allow any Trump supporters to march.

They're all "fascists"! Ipso facto, the people cracking their skulls and smashing store windows are "anti-fascists," or as they call themselves, "antifa."

We have no way of knowing if the speakers at the Charlottesville "Unite the Right" rally last weekend were "Nazis," "white supremacists" or passionate Civil War buffs, inasmuch as they weren't allowed to speak. The Democratic governor shut the event down, despite a court order to let it proceed.

We have only visuals presented to us by the activist media, showing some participants with Nazi paraphernalia. But for all we know, the Nazi photos are as unrepresentative of the rally as that photo of the drowned Syrian child is of Europe's migrant crisis. Was it 1 percent Nazi or 99 percent Nazi?

As the "Unite the Right" crowd was dispersing, they were forced by the police into the path of the peace-loving, rock-throwing, fire-spraying antifa. A far-left reporter for The New York Times, Sheryl Gay Stolberg, tweeted live from the event: "The hard left seemed as hate-filled as alt-right. I saw club-wielding 'antifa' beating white nationalists being led out of the park."

That's when protestor James Fields sped his car into a crowd of the counter-protesters, then immediately hit reverse, injuring dozens of people, and killing one woman, Heather Heyer.

This has been universally labeled "terrorism," but we still don't know whether Fields hit the gas accidentally, was in fear for his life or if he rammed the group intentionally and maliciously.

With any luck, we'll unravel Fields' motives faster than it took the Obama administration to discern the motives of a Muslim shouting "Allahu Akbar!" while gunning down soldiers at Fort Hood. (Six years.)

But so far, all we know is that Fields said he was "upset about black people" and wanted to kill as many as possible. On his Facebook page, he displayed a "White Power" poster and "liked" three organizations deemed "white separatist hate groups" by the Southern Poverty Law Center. A subsequent search of his home turned up bomb-making materials, ballistic vests, rifles, ammunition and a personal journal of combat tactics.

Actually, none of that is true. The paragraph above describes, down to the letter, what was known about Micah Xavier Johnson, the black man who murdered five Dallas cops a year ago during a Black Lives Matter demonstration. My sole alteration to the facts is reversing the words "black" and "white."

President Obama held a news conference the next day to say it's "very hard to untangle the motives." The New York Times editorialized agnostically that many "possible motives will be ticked off for the killer." (One motive kind of sticks out like a sore thumb to me.)

In certain cases, the media are quite willing to jump to conclusions. In others, they seem to need an inordinate amount of time to detect motives.

The media think they already know all there is to know about James Fields, but they also thought they knew all about the Duke lacrosse players, "gentle giant" Michael Brown and those alleged gang-rapists at the University of Virginia.

Waiting for facts is now the "Nazi" position.

Liberals have Republicans over a barrel because they used the word "racist." The word is kryptonite, capable of turning the entire GOP and 99 percent of the "conservative media" into a panicky mass of cowardice.

This week, Mitt Romney and Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) -- among others -- instructed us that masked liberals hitting people with baseball bats are pure of heart -- provided they first label the likes of Charles Murray or some housewife in a "MAGA" hat "fascists."

Luckily, the week before opening fire on Republicans, critically injuring House Majority Whip Steve Scalise, Bernie Sanders-supporter James Hodgkinson had used the vital talisman, calling the GOP "fascist." So you see, he wasn't trying to commit mass murder! He was just fighting "Nazis." Rubio and Romney will be expert witnesses.

And let's recall the response of Hillary Clinton to the horrifying murder of five Dallas cops last year. The woman who ran against Trump displayed all the moral blindness currently being slanderously imputed to him.

In an interview on CNN about the slaughter that had taken place roughly 12 hours earlier, Hillary barely paused to acknowledge the five dead officers -- much less condemn the shooting -- before criticizing police for their "implicit bias" six times in about as many minutes.

What she really wanted to talk about were the two recent police shootings of black men in Baton Rouge and Minneapolis, refusing to contradict Minnesota Gov. Mark Dayton's claim that the Minneapolis shooting was based on racism.

Officers in both cases were later found innocent of any wrongdoing. Either the left has had a really bad streak of luck on their police brutality cases, or bad cops are a lot rarer than they think.

Some people would not consider the mass murder of five white policemen by an anti-cop nut in the middle of a BLM protest a good jumping-off point for airing BLM's delusional complaints about the police. It would be like responding to John Hinckley Jr.'s attempted murder of President Reagan by denouncing Jodie Foster for not dating him.

Or, to bring it back to Charlottesville, it would be as if Trump had responded by expounding on the kookiest positions of "Unite the Right" -- just as Hillary's response echoed the paranoid obsessions of the cop-killer. Trump would have quickly skipped over the dead girl and railed against black people, Jews and so on.

That is the precise analogy to what Hillary did as the bodies of five Dallas cops lay in the morgue.

Thank God Donald J. Trump is our president, and not Mitt Romney, not Marco Rubio and not that nasty woman.

Martin Luther King Condemned The Violence On Both Sides, Too

by Robert Romano: Whenever President Donald Trump — or any political leader — stands up to condemn all of the violence at a national tragedy such as Charlottesville, Va. regardless of the causes, political or otherwise, those calls should be embraced, lest the result be that some forms of political violence be justified — and perpetuated as a consequence.

That was what Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. preached. He said, “Hate begets hate; violence begets violence; toughness begets a greater toughness. We must meet the forces of hate with the power of love… Our aim must never be to defeat or humiliate the white man, but to win his friendship and understanding.”

King deplored the violence on all sides of the national pursuit of racial equality. In his book, “Where do we go from here: Chaos or community?” King condemned the “terror of extremist white violence” and at the same time gave an equal share of the blame for violence to those who resorted to riots to end racial oppression and segregation: “in several Northern and Western cities, most tragically in Watts, young Negroes had exploded in violence. In an irrational burst of rage they had sought to say something, but the flames had blackened both themselves and their oppressors.”

While King understood why the riots occurred — he called them the “language of the unheard” — and yet he did not justify them, instead saying, “riots are socially destructive and self-defeating” and “there’s no practical or moral answer in the realm of violence” and “there is no violent solution” to social injustices.

Was King morally equating those who perpetuated racial injustice and those who opposed it, as Trump is now accused? No. But he was saying resorting to violence to achieve political ends, regardless of the motive, was unquestionably immoral, even in the pursuit of racial justice. That is all.

But it was not simply a message of non-violence as its own end. King never lost sight of his goals: “it is not enough for me to stand before you tonight and condemn riots. It would be morally irresponsible for me to do that without, at the same time, condemning the contingent, intolerable conditions that exist in our society.” He urged legislation via our political institutions, not physical confrontation, to resolve the evils of segregation.

King was being the adult in the room. He was right. While the nation was tearing itself apart over a true injustice, government-forced racial segregation, he pursued non-violent, political means to achieve the changes he sought. In the face of racial violence, he preached a non-violent response. He kept the moral high ground. His view was that violence would only lead to more violence, and so brokered no quarter for those who resorted to it — whether they were fighting for or against racial injustice.

At question today is whether President Trump should have condemned not only the violence in Charlottesville, Va. perpetrated by hateful white supremacists attending the rally opposing the removal of a statue of Confederate general Robert E. Lee — including the tragic murder of Heather Heyer by James Fields — but also the anti-fascists (“Antifa”) counter-protesters who attended and engaged in street fights with the protesters.

On Twitter on Aug. 12, Trump deplored the violence, writing in his first response to the tragedy at 1:19 p.m., “We ALL must be united [and] condemn all that hate stands for. There is no place for this kind of violence in America. [Let’s] come together as one!”

Later in the day, he said at a speech in Bedminster, N.J. at 3:33 p.m., “we’re closely following the terrible events unfolding in Charlottesville, Virginia. We condemn in the strongest possible terms this egregious display of hatred, bigotry and violence, on many sides. On many sides. It’s been going on for a long time in our country. Not Donald Trump, not Barack Obama. This has been going on for a long, long time. It has no place in America. What is vital now is a swift restoration of law and order and the protection of innocent lives. No citizen should ever fear for their safety and security in our society, and no child should ever be afraid to go outside and play, or be with their parents, and have a good time.”

Here, Trump had condemned all of the violence that occurred at the event including the murder by Fields and the violence between the protesters and the counter-protesters — and was roundly condemned, apparently by those who prefer some forms of violence over others.

To be clear, based on Charlottesville court records, attendees from both sides of the protest were arrested for assault and other charges, including Fields. For example, Troy Dunigan, was arrested for throwing objects at the Nazi protesters. Jacob Leigh Smith was arrested for attacking a journalist.

Journalist Sheryl Gay Stolberg reported violence on both sides on Twitter on Aug. 12, “The hard left seemed as hate-filled as alt-right. I saw club-wielding ‘Antifa’ beating white nationalists being led out of the park.”

So, indisputably, there was violence on both sides, neither of which can be justified, and Trump condemned it all. So too would have King, who lived through far worse, and through it all condemned all of the violence, even the violence that was committed on his cause’s behalf.

That is not to paint Trump as some sort of pacifist or advocate of non-violent resistance. He’s not. Not at all. But neither is he irresponsible to abhor the violence of Charlottesville — all of it — and urge all sides to stand down. He has a responsibility to restore civil order.

That is a demonstration of leadership at an extremely difficult moment. That is not always the popular path, the expedient one. King too was criticized in his lifetime by those who thought violence was warranted. But sometimes leadership means doing what others are afraid to do. King stood above it all, saying, “Violence as a way of achieving racial justice is both impractical and immoral… Violence is impractical because it is a descending spiral ending in destruction for all. It is immoral because it seeks to humiliate the opponent rather than win his understanding: it seeks to annihilate rather than convert. Violence is immoral because it thrives on hatred rather than love. It destroys community and makes brotherhood impossible. It leaves society in monologue rather than dialogue. Violence ends up defeating itself. It creates bitterness in the survivors and brutality in the destroyers.”

It also happens to be the law, where regardless of motive, physical violence cannot be tolerated except in self-defense. What if Trump had done the opposite and condemned the criminal violence of some while condoning the violence of others? Surely, the easy path would be to ignore those who attacked attendees of the Charlottesville protest, and simply focus on Fields’ murder.

But as the nation’s foremost law enforcement officer, Trump, the head of the executive branch, the President is obligated to apply the law equally. A police officer would have to behave no differently. White supremacist or Antifa, if you get violent, you’re going to jail. That is the law, and the President is supposed to enforce the law and set an example for all Americans — those with whom he agrees and disagrees. It would be irresponsible and wrong to condone instigating violence, taking matters into one’s own hands, whether against an anti-fascist or a Nazi.

At a very horrible moment in our history, on Aug. 12, the President demonstrated moral clarity. He wrote on Twitter at 5:19 p.m., “We must remember this truth: No matter our color, creed, religion or political party, we are ALL AMERICANS FIRST.” He later expressed condolences to the family of Heyer, and also of the officers who were killed in the line of duty in Charlottesville.

On Aug. 14, at the White House, Trump made an additional speech announcing a Justice Department civil rights investigation into the violence, stating, “No matter the color of our skin, we all live under the same laws, we all salute the same great flag, and we are all made by the same almighty God. We must love each other, show affection for each other, and unite together in condemnation of hatred, bigotry, and violence. We must rediscover the bonds of love and loyalty that bring us together as Americans. Racism is evil. And those who cause violence in its name are criminals and thugs, including the KKK, neo-Nazis, white supremacists, and other hate groups that are repugnant to everything we hold dear as Americans. We are a nation founded on the truth that all of us are created equal. We are equal in the eyes of our Creator. We are equal under the law. And we are equal under our Constitution. Those who spread violence in the name of bigotry strike at the very core of America.”

Then on Aug. 15, at Trump Tower in New York City, Trump again blamed “both sides” for the violence, saying, “You had a group on one side and you had a group on the other and they came at each other with clubs and it was vicious…”

These messages are all consistent. They speak of restoring law and order, rejecting hatred and bigotry and nationally uniting against what is becoming a scourge of political violence. It could get worse from here. Much worse. And through it all, the only way it will stop is when those resorting to violence — all sides — lay down their arms.

The issue of what to do with Confederate statues can be dealt with at the local, state and federal levels depending on where they are located by institutions that we all can participate in. That is the proper venue for resolving these disputes, not violence.

Trump, like King, was intoning emphatically against political violence in all of its forms, working within the framework of our political institutions to achieve change and standing up for the civil society.

What are you standing for?

The Great Diversion

by Paul Jacob, Contributing Author: Though the breakdown of civil debate seems new, the subjects are old. We are actually talking about Nazis, again. Nazi death counts. And the Confederacy. The former defeated by my father’s generation, the latter defeated several generations earlier.


Because talking about the future would require actual thought. It’s easier to fight over the past, over symbols of the past.

That is why there was a Charlottesville debacle. It is about a statue, a monument to dead soldiers featuring the Confederacy’s General Robert E. Lee. And what it means. The “Unite the Right” rally was set in Charlottesville because of the city council’s decision to remove it.

It is interesting, though, that the event did not unite “the Right.” Conservative and even many alleged “alt-right” groups refused to participate.

But “the Left” seems more united than before. If you focus on past racism and the persistence of Nazi and Confederate symbology, it’s pretty easy to agree. I agree.

And yet, I take a step back, and remember that those monuments do not have the univocal racist meaning attributed to them. They were intended to heal wounds.*

Now they open up old ones.

And yet this is all a diversion. We are facing a major set of crises that could lead to war, depression, chaos, and (possibly) worse. But we are not now handling them because we are fighting over symbols of the past.

This may be a very human thing to do.

But it is not smart.

This is Common Sense. I’m Paul Jacob.

* At least 350,000 young American men died wearing Confederate uniforms in the Civil War, and half a million Union soldiers are believed to have died directly from their war wounds. Today’s population is ten times greater, so adjusted for today it would be eight million deaths. That is a lot of searing wounds.

Sessions Defends Withholding Funding: No Tolerance for Loss of ‘Innocent Lives’ in Sanctuary Cities

"Sanctuary jurisdictions have the gall to feign outrage
when their police departments lose federal funds as a
direct result of their malfeasance," AG Jeff Sessions
by Fred Lucas: Attorney General Jeff Sessions said Wednesday that a sanctuary city is a “trafficker, smuggler, or predator’s best friend,” specifically taking a whack at Chicago, the first sanctuary city to sue the Justice Department for withholding federal grants.

Sessions heralded Miami-Dade County, the first jurisdiction to reverse its sanctuary policy after President Donald Trump took office, as an example of how localities can work with federal officials who enforce immigration law.

“I know that Miami-Dade will be an example of the good that comes from following the law. We have already seen that: The same Independence Day weekend when Chicago suffered more than 100 shootings and 15 homicides, Miami-Dade also had a historic number of shooting deaths—zero,” Sessions said during his remarks at PortMiami.

Sanctuary cities endanger not only their own citizens and police but federal immigration officers, Sessions said, yet “have the gall to feign outrage when their police departments lose federal funds as a direct result of their malfeasance.”

Sanctuary cities are municipalities that opt against working with federal law enforcement on applying immigration law to illegal immigrants.

“So to all ‘sanctuary’ jurisdictions across the country, I say this: Miami-Dade is doing it, and so can you,” Sessions said, adding:Work with us to enforce a lawful immigration system that keeps us safe and serves our national interest. The Department of Justice will not concede a single block or street corner in the United States to lawlessness or crime. Nor will we tolerate the loss of innocent life because a handful of jurisdictions believe that they are above the law.
The attorney general’s remarks come two days after California joined the cities of San Francisco and Chicago in suing the Justice Department for saying it would withhold certain law enforcement grants from sanctuary jurisdictions. The separate lawsuits claim the Justice Department lacks authority from Congress to put conditions on the use of the funds.

The Trump administration’s policy on sanctuary cities includes requiring localities to give 48 hours’ notice to federal immigration officials before releasing an illegal immigrant jailed for another crime. The policy allows time for such prisoners to be taken into custody by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, known as ICE.

Sessions also credited Lansing, Michigan, and Westchester County, New York, for reversing their policies.

“The Trump administration cannot manipulate federal grant fund requirements to pressure states, counties, or municipalities to enforce federal immigration laws,” California Attorney General Xavier Becerra said Monday.

“By placing unconstitutional immigration enforcement conditions on public safety grants, the Trump administration is threatening to harm a range of law enforcement initiatives across California,” Becerra, a Democrat, said. “This is pure intimidation intended to force our law enforcement into changing the policies and practices that they have determined promote public safety.”

Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel, a Democrat, has been an outspoken critic of the administration’s policy.

“So if voters in Chicago are concerned about losing federal grant money: Call your mayor,” Sessions said, adding: “Rather than acknowledge soaring murder counts or the heartbreaking stories told by victims’ families, Chicago’s mayor has chosen to sue the federal government.”

The Trump administration contends its policy on sanctuary jurisdictions simply puts Justice Department grant-making in compliance with existing federal law. The administration argues that, in a danger to public safety, sanctuary cities release thousands of criminals each year, resulting in preventable murders and other violent crimes.

A Harvard-Harris poll found that 80 percent of voters agree that local authorities should report to federal agents when they come in contact with illegal immigrants.

The issue isn’t entirely an either-or situation, since many localities across the country want to work with federal immigration officials but feel constrained by certain state policies, said Jonathan Thompson, executive director of the National Sheriffs’ Association.

The National Sheriffs’ Association has worked with the Justice Department and the Department of Homeland Security to develop a plan to make local jurisdictions safer from both crime and litigation.

“The overwhelming number of sheriffs across the country want to adhere to the rule of law,” Thompson told The Daily Signal in a phone interview:

But disagreements between state and local jurisdictions carry risk. It can be financial roulette. If you free someone, an offender could harm another victim. If you hold them, the ACLU will come in and sue, and probably win at the district court level. … We want to legally and constitutionally transfer these detainees over to ICE.

Strings typically come attached to federal funds, Thompson noted, citing federal highway dollars that historically have been tied to states’ adopting speed limit, seat belt, and drunken driving laws.

Sessions was careful to praise local law enforcement, saying:Local police are not the problem. They risk their lives each day in service of the law and the people they protect. The problem is these sanctuary jurisdictions tie our police officers’ hands and endanger federal immigration officers as well when they are forced to pursue these criminal aliens outside of the jails and prisons. Yet these sanctuary jurisdictions have the gall to feign outrage when their police departments lose federal funds as a direct result of their malfeasance.“The people of Miami-Dade know that the rule of law guarantees equality and opportunity,” Sessions said. “Protecting this guarantee is why the government of Miami-Dade made its decision to work with federal law enforcement, not against us.”

Miami-Dade was not always a model, said Jessica Vaughan, director of policy studies at the Washington-based Center for Immigration Studies. It previously was identified as one of 10 jurisdictions that could lose funding, but developed a plan to work closely with federal officials.

“This shows that federal government sanctions, in many cases, can change policies,” Vaughan told The Daily Signal. “I wish they would do it for the right reason, because sanctuary policies are a threat to public safety. But sometimes money talks. Other cities want to be martyrs to their sanctuary policy.”

Of about 300 sanctuary towns, cities, and counties, “a handful are truly egregious,” Vaughan said, naming Chicago, San Francisco, Philadelphia, and New York.

Smaller jurisdictions in Massachusetts, Oregon, and Washington state, she said, also are adamant about not working with ICE.

Sanctuary jurisdictions that sue the federal government to gain federal funds don’t likely have a case, said Hans von Spakovsky, a senior legal fellow at The Heritage Foundation.

“This is not a coercion of local law enforcement to enforce federal law, it’s simply asking a city to notify the federal government if and when it releases a criminal illegal immigrant,” von Spakovsky told The Daily Signal. “The lawsuits border on frivolous.”

The Real Battle of Charlottesville

Subvert: to overthrow, destroy, undermine, or destabilize an established or existing system, especially a legally constituted government or a set of beliefs. (Webster's College Dictionary)
by John Porter, Contributing Author: This is a time which calls for complete and unabashed honesty with ourselves. What are we really witnessing with the events of violence being carried out in our beloved America? The vile and putrid display in Charlottesville, Virginia this past weekend is but one more event of such violence intended to subvert our "Republican" form of government of Individual Freedom into one of a Socialist dictatorship, such as we have witnessed in many countries of the world with Venezuela being the most recent example.

What I believe we are seeing has very little, if anything at all, to do with Robert E. Lee, slavery, the Civil War, race, color, religion, etc. These are but flashpoints for a much bigger and more sinister movement underway to destroy our government of Individual Freedom and Responsibility. For the past seventy five years the sinister movement has been going on through national politics, peacefully and for the most part supported most notably by the National Democrat Party with a few  from the National Republican Party.

Their desire is for he Federal Government to have close to total control of all aspects of the lives of individuals. It is all about control.   Should government be in control or the people in control?

We must be reminded of the things most needed to subvert a government or system, i.e. control the media, control the minds of the young through the school systems, destruction of the culture and  history of our nation. (The root cause of the violence in Charlottesville, VA. and other southern cities is the destruction of American History). It has been until now by peaceful means, and fairly successfully accomplished.

The media is now controlled by having infiltrated the executive level of major news outlets.  The thinking of the young is controlled via school teachers and college professors.  The destruction of culture and history is being eliminated from school books via Common Core and such. The root cause of the conflict / violence in Charlottesville, VA. and other southern cities is the destruction of American History.

In the past, there has been a slow "peaceful" approach by the Democrat Liberal Progressives. NOW COMES THE RISE OF THE VIOLENT LEFT. Taking the leed are two groups. Black Lives Matter is the most notable group, but the most dangerous and fastest growing group is known as ANTIFA (Anti-Fascist Action). Their violent tactics have elicited substantial support from the mainstream Progressive left, both in government and the media. I will not detail ANTIFA here, but strongly urge you to research it.

As for Charlottesville, as repugnant as they are, the white supremacist group acquired a legal permit issued by the city of Charlottesville to peacefully protest the removal of the statue of Robert E. Lee. However, ANTIFA did not have a permit to counter protest. They were sent in to cause exactly what happened. This is not the first time the two groups have clashed.  ANTIFA uses these type events to cause riots and violence so as to further subvert our system of government and the ligament election of a president.

The real danger is that they are supported by the Progressive Liberals of the Democrat Party and by those in the Republican Party who wish to see President Trump driven from office. President Trump is exactly right, there are two sides to this Charlottesville story, but you are only hearing about the repugnant white supremacists and not the equally about the repugnant ANTIFA group.

It is widely reported that the ANTIFA group is heavily financed by George Soros, and he hasn't denied it. They have been tagged a Democrat Terror group and is leading what many are calling “The Resistance.”

We have heard Hillary Clinton speak of "The Resistance." Have you all asked yourself, why are he Democrats and the so called mainstream media  not publicly condemning the riots in different places?

Consider, their fight is against both President Trump and the Republic.  Their goal is destroying Trump's America First agenda and to make America “ungovernable” for this president. The swamp is deep and very wide. The Alligators and poisonous vipers are fighting / attacking.

Please stand with our president  & America in these perilous times that our Republic is under attack.  And, share this with your contacts.

We Are Fortunate to Have H.R. McMaster as National Security Advisor

National Security Adviser Lt Gene. H. R. McMaster
by Newt Gingrich: The recent anonymous, backstabbing attacks on National Security Adviser Lieutenant General H. R. McMaster are despicable.

I have known H.R. since he was a captain in the Gulf War. He is a remarkable American, and we are fortunate to have him serving the country. He is a decorated combat veteran who is also an intellectual – a truly rare combination.

H.R. graduated from West Point and earned a master of arts and Ph.D in Military History from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

Research he did for his doctoral dissertation ultimately led to his book, Dereliction of Duty, which was a courageous and devastating critique of the failure of senior military officials to insist on telling President Lyndon Johnson about the problems we were encountering in the Vietnam War.

McMaster on thin ice with the White House?
The recent anonymous, backstabbing attacks on National Security Adviser Lieutenant General H. R. McMaster are despicable.

I have known H.R. since he was a captain in the Gulf War. He is a remarkable American, and we are fortunate to have him serving the country. He is a decorated combat veteran who is also an intellectual – a truly rare combination.

H.R. graduated from West Point and earned a master of arts and Ph.D in Military History from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

Research he did for his doctoral dissertation ultimately led to his book, "Dereliction of Duty," which was a courageous and devastating critique of the failure of senior military officials to insist on telling President Lyndon Johnson about the problems we were encountering in the Vietnam War.

Regardless of what nameless critics say, H.R. McMaster’s service and experience are invaluable.

Being openly critical of senior military leadership did not win H.R. many friends on promotion boards. He was passed over twice for brigadier general, despite having a brilliant combat record.

As a captain, McMaster earned the Silver Star – our nation’s third highest award for bravery after the Congressional Medal of Honor. He earned this decoration after leading a Gulf War offensive with only nine tanks that destroyed 28 Iraqi tanks and nearly 50 other military vehicles with no American losses. Known as the Battle of 73 Easting, this engagement has been widely studied.

Following the Gulf War, McMaster returned to West Point as an assistant professor in history and later went on to the Hoover Institution at Stanford University, where he conducted research as a national security affairs fellow.

Then McMaster went back to war. In 2005, he commanded the 3rd Armored Cavalry Regiment in a remarkably innovative campaign, which became a model for defeating the insurgents in western Iraq. In 2010, he took over planning in Afghanistan and made gains confronting the daunting challenges that still haunt us in that country.

McMaster’s stunning combat and intellectual records have been praised by both Democrats and Republicans. The recent efforts by various individuals (most of whom are anonymous) to slander McMaster, a man who has spent a lifetime of service defending the nation, are nothing more than cowardly and disgraceful.

The truth is, McMaster understands three things that his critics do not.

First, the American system of national security is extraordinarily complex. Mobilizing it and orchestrating a strategy is an extremely complicated, time consuming process. However, when fully mobilized, it is enormously powerful – as we saw in Riyadh where representatives from more than 55 Arab and Muslim countries came together to work toward defeating terrorism in the Middle East, and as we are seeing today, as the U.S. focuses efforts to counter threats from North Korea.

McMaster also knows that since 1939, the American system has built allies and assets across the world. Our power as a country is multiplied over and over by alliances. Some of those alliances are now in their third generation. Throwing them away would make America weaker, not greater.

Finally, from his firsthand experiences in Iraq and Afghanistan, and his efforts working to modernize the Army, H.R. knows that the challenges to our safety and, indeed, to our survival are getting greater and more complex. He understands that defeating these challenges will take innovative thought, creative solutions, and institutional and cultural change in our national security systems. This includes changes within the Congress and to the tools used for communicating with the American people.

Regardless of what nameless critics say, H.R. McMaster’s service and experience are invaluable.

He is the right person, in the right place, at the right time.
Newt Gingrich is a former Georgia Congressman and Speaker of the U.S. House. He co-authored and was the chief architect of the "Contract with America" and a major leader in the Republican victory in the 1994 congressional elections. He is noted speaker and writer. The above commentary was shared via Gingrich Productions.

Need A Plan To Replace Obamacare, Republicans? Here It Is!

by Herman Cain: It's called the Affordable Better Care Act, and it starts over, rebuilding the building from the ground up. Because the old one was a shack.

"Man wandering among trees cannot see the forest."

Sadly, this is what our 535 members of Congress are doing, and they can't solve the health care and health insurance mess as a group. They bump into special interests who have supported their re-election campaigns, or they are trying to protect current sweeteners in current law, or they get bogged down with procedures, or they are trying to pay back old political favors.

As a result, their proposed "solutions" are not really solutions. They are minimal increments on a problem to garner enough votes for passage.

The other extreme is a new law that's so complicated and ill-constructed that "they have to pass it so you can find out what's in it". (Looking at you, Nancy Pelosi).

When we find out what's in it after they have shoved it down the throats of the American people, we experience the disaster it is. It's called the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010, although you know it as ObamaCare, and there is nothing affordable about. It's just the biggest power grab by the Democrats since the early 1990s.

So this is getting us nowhere. Let’s start over!

The Affordable Better Care (ABC) Act
This is a solution that can reverse, not fix, the damage the Democrats caused by inflicting ObamaCare on us, and which the Republicans have yet to fix.

It has six parts, which in total account for 100 percent of the population:A. Health insurance purchased through an employer (49 percent)
B. Health insurance purchased directly from the individual market (7 percent)
C. A government-subsidized high-risk pool (8 percent)
D. People already covered by Medicare (14 percent)
E. People already covered by Medicaid (20 percent)
F. People insured through the military or the VA (2 percent)

* Percentages from latest Kaiser Foundation analysis

* Total percentages equal 100% of the US population
Here’s why this works:

Open competition allows employers to maintain shared cost coverage with the 49 percent of people covered through employers. Employers choose!

Open competition allows businesses with 50 employees or fewer to craft and decide coverage for their employees. Employers decide!

Insurance companies can impose maximum liabilities. Most people will not hit those levels as set pre-ACA. If maximums are hit, then those people qualify for the high-risk pool referenced in Part C. That protects employers, employees and insurers alike.

As much as most of us do not like new taxes, a simple single tax is better than the many sneak-a-taxes imbedded in the ACA. The High Risk pool would be funded by a small incremental "high risk" tax, just as we fund Social Security (a 12.4 percent payroll tax) and Medicare/Medicaid (a 2.9 percent payroll tax).

This is how we help those who can't help themselves, without destroying a system that was working fine for 92 percent of the time before Democrats ruined it.

Medicare, Medicaid and Military/VA remain unchanged. They all need reforming, but that needs to be a separate conversation.

Health insurance competition across state lines is a separate consideration, although that needs to happen too.

Health Savings Accounts will not be restricted but expanded. This will provide a health care emergency fund for people over time.

Alternative methods to pay for health care costs will not be restricted. These include cash or fee arrangements, or health sharing programs.

Health insurance companies will adapt quickly to survive. Under the current system, many insurers can’t afford to stay in markets, and many consumers can’t survive with what they’re being offered.

"Fair" is usually defined as what people can afford. Just as the food we eat, the house we live in, or the car we drive are based on what we can afford.

Since the above plan has many scenarios, everybody can afford something if they are able to work. Those that are disabled are covered by Part C, or by existing disability laws. Details are to be determined, but carping about details should not derail solving the problem of unaffordable health insurance.

"Rich and middle class" are defined as being able to purchase their own health insurance when given the opportunity to choose a worthwhile option. Constantly bashing the "rich" and threatening to make them pay more has never solved anything.

The ACA blew up the health care and health insurance building to fix an 8 percent leak in the roof. It's in splinters, and the ones suffering the most are not the politicians or the insurance companies. The ones suffering the most are the people, the doctors and the health care providers. The law makers cannot see the forest. They are lost in the trees.

Let's solve the right problem! Let's start over to rebuild the building!
