Re: “U.S. Rep. McSally Says She Supports Protecting Americans with Pre-Existing Conditions in Obamacare Replacement

Anytime Uncle Sam makes you purchase something or pay a fine... It can't be good!

Re: “U.S. Rep. McSally Says She Supports Protecting Americans with Pre-Existing Conditions in Obamacare Replacement

I spoke with her office this morning and encouraged them to not be pressured to a quick fix by the impatient media types hoping for failure at any level. Take your time and do it right this time. Drop the 80/20 rule which opened the door for insurance companies to over pay doctors. Armed with the Obama promise of government bailouts for insurance companies they pushed up allowable charges that Medicare has never allowed, and the doctors kept quiet. Imagine that. Obama helped the doctors steal more of our health care money. And now the insurance companies are suing the government over the Obama lies?

Take your time, listen to the problems and solve them. What a unique concept, huh?

Re: “Is Antisemitism Rising to the Threat Level?

And out of the wood work they crawl and comment here. While condemning a state based on religion, as they clamor for the US to be based on their religion, they forget the very reason the pilgrims fled from a state run religion. The very basis for this country is freedom of religion, of speech, of the right to over-throw a government that is not for the people, by the people. Bannon is the greatest evil to ever enter the WH, backed by the dark money of Koch Industries. The vile cabinet in the WH and the salesman front man backed by Russia, are actively and openly declaring war on America. The terrorists are in the WH, encouraging hate and praised by David Duke. These attacks are the work of Bannon and his backers to foment fear. Do not fear! Stand tall and firm! Vote to get checks and balances back into our government. Only we can be the ones to let this happen. Be the force that says, NO!

Looks like it took $200,000 to get him to leave. Once again putting the students last. How fitting.

Francis exhibits perfectly how leftists, liberals side with radical islamic extremists at every opportunity. Side with them to exterminate infidels or be the subject of their hate.

Re: “Is Antisemitism Rising to the Threat Level?

These acts of hate directed at the Jewish Community are not, in my opinion, expressions of Antisemitism but expressions of Antizionism ; a result of the establishment of a Zionist State in Palestine and the continued Occupation and Usurpation of Palestinian Land by a Zionist Government.

On November 26, 1947, James Forrestal, Secretary of Defense, stated to J. Howard Mc Grath, Senator from Rhode Island:

" group in this country should be permitted to influence our policy to the point it could endanger our national security."(The Forrestal Diaries, 1951)

Secretary Forrestal was referring to enormous political pressure that the Zionist Jews (including Felix Frankfurter and Louis Brandeis of the Supreme Court) in this country were placing both on President Truman and on the political process, generally, for the creation of a Jewish state in Palestine.

President Truman, himself had serious misgivings about such a state and initially opposed its' creation:

"The creation of a Jewish state...would cause a third world war...The government of Palestine should be a government of the people irrespective of race, religion or color."(Michael Cohen, Truman and Israel, 1990)

This view was reflected by non-Zionists Jews in this country who also feared the creation of a Theocracy (Jewish State) in the Palestine. In an editorial in the New York Times:

.."Many of us have long had doubts concerning the wisdom of erecting a political state on a basis of a religious faith"(quoted in The Forrestal Diaries, 1951)..."the decision is fraught with great danger for the future security of this country."(The Forrestal Diaries, 1951)

A Jewish State in the Middle East was established, with US support, on the basis of a Jewish terrorist organization, the Irgun, led by former Prime Minister Menachem Begin. The Jews considered themselves "freedom fighters".

We can begin to effectively neutralize the animosity within the Moslem Community with a recognition of the historic character of Palestine as representing the common heritage of Christian, Jews, and Moslems; that the United States rejects claims for the completely autonomous political and cultural development of any one religious/cultural group in Palestine; that Christians, Jews, and Moslems have a cooperative, co-equal, semi-autonomous share in the political and cultural development of Palestine.

The United States must re-evaluate and re-formulate our Foreign Policy in the Middle East. If we have not the rectitude and courage to undue the injustices to the indigenous people of Palestine, the possibility of the use of weapons of mass destruction may involve this country in a Religious War of self-destruction.

Re: “Is Antisemitism Rising to the Threat Level?

Seems like this should be the first group to investigate - leftists. Every day they show their hatred and contempt for Christians.

Ive never been shouted down throughout a time of prayer like that, Chaplain Sprague told me. Ive never been in a situation like that. Its sad there wasnt honor and respect for God.

But they became absolutely unhinged when he concluded his prayer in the name of Jesus.

Wow, they booed the name of Jesus, Cassidy said in remarks reported by the Times-Picayune.

Re: “Modern Slavery

Okay, tough question. I remember seeing ads in the back pages of the Weekly that advertised adult services which did not always seem 100% legal--this was about 10-15 years ago. You know, "hot college girls" type stuff. Does TW have some sort of check-and-balance system or vetting policy to make sure that traffickers are not advertising with them?

Re: “Is Antisemitism Rising to the Threat Level?

Unfortunately, it doesn't take a lot now days for someone to give into their hate. These people see a thousand and one reasons to hate certain groups based on any number of demographics.

When it comes to singling out Jewish people, it may be more about something they rationalized in their twisted thoughts based on something they once heard because when you get right down to it some haters are just not very original in their thinking -- it is kind of an "occupational" hazard for haters, who after all don't really have to think -- that's why they hate, its easier than the alternative.

David, so anyone that disagrees with your Twisted, B.S. Article you would consider to be a "willing diluted supporter" ? is that what you call American citizens that have a different point of view ? Maybe you should contact Hilary Clinton and let her know she can add Diluted to her basket of deplorable's and unredeemable's . Perhaps if you would have used the old nugget, before Nov 8 and given her you're advice, she would have won the election.
