Michele Bachmann: 1 simple secret to fix Obamacare

‘All the federal government needs to do after repealing is to …’

When asked what she would propose, Michele Bachmann, the former congresswoman replied, “An Obamacare fix? Easy.”

Then she provided these five steps.

  1. “Pass the full Obamacare repeal bill. That gets us to 2008 when health care was far cheaper than it is today under the burdensome, heavily bureaucratic Obamacare mandates.
  2. “Each state needs to decide what it wants to spend on health care and what it wants to offer its citizens, if anything. The federal government has repeatedly proved itself a failure on this issue for decades. They need to get out of creating monopolies in health care and punishing free market competition.
  3. “All the federal government needs to do after repealing Obamacare is to pass a bill that allows any health insurance product to be sold across state lines with no minimum federal mandates. Period.
  4. “Medicare eligible Senior citizens and poor people on Medicaid should have the option of choosing a voucher to spend toward the purchase of any type of healthcare plan they want, then put the surplus, if any in a Health savings account.
  5. “I’d also encourage the states to pass liability shields for charity clinics. If doctors, nurses and facilities want to offer free healthcare, then the clinic and practitioners should be free from the threat of lawsuits.”

Her bottom line?

Let the market fix the problems caused by Obamacare.

Once the impediments were removed, “People would be shocked at the low-cost options that would arise in the marketplace.”
So, WND asked, how she would deal with the potential PR dilemma of a parade of people on the news who had lost their health-care coverage after a full repeal of Obamacare?
She focused on the opportunities provided by change as far exceeding the perils.

“Think of all the minute clinics located in grocery stores today, the concierge health services people buy for $80/month (in Colorado), the nurses and doctors offering ‘in home’ appointments via Skype?”

Bachmann noted, “These innovations are available today in spite of massive government intervention in the healthcare business.”

“Innovation in health care is a given, its the price of government bureaucratic intervention that we can’t afford,” she concluded.

Islamic Invasion, Immigration Vetting Process, and Immigration Facts

Hawaii: Muslim Brotherhood-backed imam dictating US refugee policy

 

Part 1

Syrian refugees entering Europe

One argument for bringing thousands of Middle East refugees to the U.S. is that these allegedly vetted immigrants are supposedly the safest kind of visitors.

Is that true?

The FBI announced this week it has 300 refugees already in the U.S. under investigation for suspected terror activities. That’s 300 refugees who we were assured were “rigorously” vetted by the United Nations and the U.S. government. Yet, it turns out they are deadly threats.

The 300 constitute 30% of the 1,000 open terror cases being investigated by the FBI. By the way, do you think the FBI has identified all the threats among the refugees? How’s that “rigorous” vetting working for you?

We’re not just talking about people who may commit robberies or muggings or rapes. But terror activities. It’s anyone’s guess how many robberies, muggings and rapes they commit.

Difference between historical refugees and Islamic Refugees since 9-11

It’s also anybody’s guess whether Islamic refugees commit more or fewer routine crimes than any other group. Academic studies usually lump together decades of refugee data, including Cubans from the 1960s, Vietnamese from the 1970s and sometimes even pre-World War II refugees fleeing Europe. How about crimes committed strictly by Islamic refugees since 9-11?

“There is no data that I know of,” Ann Corcoran told me. Ms. Cocoran operates RefugeeResettlementWatch.wordpress.com, where for eight years she has monitored refugees imported to U.S. cities.

“…[T]he authorities don’t usually tell the public through which immigration pathway an alien gets in here,” she said by email. “There are many legal programs and only in recent years does a news account call someone who commits a crime a refugee.”

The next time someone tells you that this latest surge of refugees is safe, let alone “the safest” of all immigrants, ask them how they know. Odds are, they are parroting talking points, not reciting documented facts.

Meanwhile, consider some examples of Islamic refugees caught planning or having committed acts of violence that Ms. Corcoran has documented on her website: A Somali arrested as he planned to detonate a bomb in 2010 to blow up a Christmas tree lighting ceremony in Oregon.

There was the Kentucky refugee terrorist now serving a life sentence after lying on U.S. immigration paperwork about his involvement in Iraqi insurgent operations against American troops; two Iraqi refugees were convicted for helping Al Qaeda in Iraq and maybe killing American servicemen there. They also lied on their refugee applications.

(Again, how’s that vetting working out?)

But those are terrorists. Aren’t regular refugees law-abiding?

To get a general idea, we might check out Europe, where there is a direct correlation between high concentrations of refugees and high crime rates. You know, robberies, muggings, rapes, etc.

Apparently unlike the U.S., some European countries specifically track refugee crimes. “Refugees committed more than 200,000 crimes [in 2015] in Germany,” reported the U.K.’s Daily Express.

Refugees in Germany committed 92,000 more offences in 2015 than in 2014, according to official figures. That’s 200,000 crimes that would not have occurred without refugees.

If we ignore all those warning signs, how about this one?

Stealth Jihad Islamic Invasion

“Just wait,” an ISIS Smuggler told BuzzFeed. “It’s our dream that there should be a caliphate not only in Syria but in all the world and we will have it soon, God willing. They are going like refugees.”

Last year, then-Sen. Jeff Sessions and Sen. Ted Cruz said the problems go beyond the refugee program, and called for closer scrutiny of the pace of immigration from Muslim countries.

“The resources spent every year investigating the countless number of immigrant terrorist suspects in the United States are astronomical,” they said. “And yet, as this costly and dangerous status quo continues, the U.S. continues to admit approximately 680,000 migrants from Muslim countries every five years.”

If the FBI has discovered 300 refugees that slipped through “rigorous” vetting, how many more will be among the next 680,000?

Many of our Christian brethren demand more Middle East refugees be brought to our country, citing as justification the Good Samaritan parable and commandments to love our neighbor and share the Gospel.

In Part 2, we examine Christians’ responsibility and look at the effects on our society and culture from importing refugees who can’t be vetted.

Culture Wars: Reasons to vote Democrat, Amazon Bestseller

Culture Wars:

‘Reasons to Vote for Democrats’ book is an Amazon best-seller — but there’s a hilarious twist

Kate Scanlon

A book titled, “Reasons to Vote for Democrats: A Comprehensive Guide,” was listed as  the No. 1 best-seller on Amazon Thursday. However, before Democrats get too excited, they should know this one thing: Every page is blank — all 266 pages.

Knowles told Fox News’ “Fox and Friends” Thursday that “what’s really great about this book, you can go cover-to-cover in about 15, 20 seconds. It took a very long time to research this book.”

“I’ve been observing the Democratic Party for at least 10 years now, and when I observed their record and reasons to vote for them — on reasons of economics or foreign policy or homeland security or civil rights and so on — I realized it was probably best to just leave all the pages blank,” Knowles said.

The first blank chapter is about “values,” he said.

“When I started researching the book and going through this exhaustive study process, at first I turned to the 2012 Democratic National Convention, and it turned out they were deciding whether or not to include God in their party platform,” Knowles said. “And the Democrats booed God. That’s not good. So I decided probably if I’m going to make a good case to vote for Democrats, probably just leave that chapter blank.”

Freedom of Religion; Stop Persecution of Christians

Trump reversing ‘devastating trend,’ says Christian leader

‘Destructive Obama-era policies’ on president’s chopping block

christianquote3-ten-com-lawPresident Donald Trump called for a united effort to make America better to a joint session of Congress Tuesday night, inviting all to join in restoring the nation’s economy, defense and more.

But a prominent Christian leader in attendance said what struck him was Trump’s commitment to religious freedom.

Family Research Council President Tony Perkins said, “Tonight President Trump gave encouragement to Americans of all backgrounds who have suffered the loss of their freedoms, especially religious liberty, because of destructive Obama-era policies.

Perkins said Trump “is taking his first steps to reverse the devastating trend of the government punishing those who live their life according to their deeply held beliefs.”

obama-persecute-christians“That’s why it’s no surprise that recent polling finds the most enthusiastic supporters of Trump are evangelicals, the same ones who helped deliver one of the most stunning upsets in election history,” he said. “President Trump understands that if Americans don’t have the freedom to live according to their faith – whether it’s in the home, in the workplace, or in school – then we really can’t be free. That’s why I remain confident that President Trump will sign an executive order reinstating government-wide protections for religious liberty.”

Perkins noted Trump’s comments about rebuilding the military and charged that the policies of the previous administration dealt with the troops “as a laboratory of liberal social experimentation.”

“These policies have led to chaplains being disciplined for their faith, and religious speech being censored. Religious liberty in the military needs to be reinforced with policies that reflect the law, which allows men and women to not only believe, but act on those beliefs,” he said.

“I am hopeful that tonight’s speech will provide new momentum toward fulfilling the GOP’s promise of dismantling the disastrous Obamacare law and ending the forced partnership between taxpayers and organizations like Planned Parenthood. We are committed to assisting the president and congressional leaders in repealing and replacing Obamacare with a program that is patient-centered and respects the principle that federal funding and subsidies do not go to health care plans which include abortion.

“Tonight, President Trump opened the door wider to solutions that put America back on the right track. As the president continues to fulfill his promises, I believe he will see more Americans rally to his side to join him in making freedom mean something again in America.”

The House Freedom Caucus released a statement praising Trump for laying out “a bold, forward-looking vision for the country that puts the needs of Main Street before those of Washington, D.C.”

“Since his first day in office, President Trump has worked tirelessly to keep his campaign promises: from undoing President Obama’s jobs-killing regulatory regime, to taking action to secure our nation,” the caucus said.

“As President Trump alluded to this evening, there’s much work to be done ahead. We were pleased the president reaffirmed his commitment to fully repeal Obamacare and replace it with patient-centered, market-driven policy. We share his vision and will work to develop a repeal and replace strategy that does just that.”

Protecting Christians, fighting terror? Russia’s on it

Syrian priest: ‘It is miraculous that we are still alive. We owe that to Vladimir Putin’

Aleksandar Pavic

putin-christian-orthodoxA few years ago, Russian Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin, who then was Russia’s ambassador to NATO, warned that a new influence had appeared that was becoming a major threat to large segments of the world, namely, Asia, Europe and America.

“There is a new civilization emerging in the Third World that thinks that the white, Northern Hemisphere has always oppressed it and must therefore fall at its feet now. … If the northern civilization wants to protect itself, it must be united: America, the European Union and Russia. If they are not together, they will be defeated one by one,” he said.

He was primarily referring to radical Islam. And America, with its Christian foundation, Europe, with its own Judeo-Christian heritage, and even Russia, with its historic Russian Orthodox Christian church, would appear to have reason to join ranks.

So why would the American political elite be so averse to pursuing better relations with Russia, as President Donald Trump has suggested?

After all, every president in recent years has stated essentially the same goal. Remember then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s “reset” under President Obama?

But opposition to Trump’s suggestions have been loud and long, despite what some have seen as extraordinary efforts on the part of Russia to protect Christians.

It was a 76-year old Flemish priest from the sixth-century Mar Yakub monastery in the Syrian city of Qara who put the issue in the context he understood best, his own life.

protect-christians“It is miraculous that we are still alive. We owe that to the army of Assad’s government and to Vladimir Putin, because he decided to intervene when the rebels threatened to take power… Between ordinary Muslims and Christians, there is no problem. It is those radical Islamic, Western-backed rebels who want to massacre us. … Trump understands that radical Islam is a bigger threat than Russia.”

Paul Marshall, Lela Gilbert and Nina Shea have collaborated to create “Persecuted: The Global Assault on Christians,” which confirms that groups like Pew Research, Newsweek and The Economist also identify Christians as “the world’s most widely persecuted religious group.”

In Europe, many of the newly sprung nationalist, anti-globalist and anti-EU parties have expressed admiration for Russia’s defense of traditional values, along with European Christian intellectuals, who despair over Western Europe’s abandonment of its spiritual roots.

In the Balkans, Russia is the sole power standing up for Christians persecuted by Islamists and has refused to recognize the Western condoned secession of Kosovo from Serbia and the Muslim Albanians ISIS-like destruction of the millennial Christian Church heritage there.

And Archbishop Vsevovlod Chaplin declared, “Any fight against terrorism is moral; we can even call it a holy fight.”
The Kremlin said, “The two leaders emphasized that joining efforts in fighting the main threat – international terrorism – is a top priority. The presidents spoke out for establishing real coordination of actions between Russia and the U.S. aimed at defeating Islamic State and other terrorists groups in Syria.”
