After the weekend …….

The quick feedback on the President’s speech and visit to Saudi Arabia was positive. The MSM in covering it had to grudgingly agree, but quickly turned back “to the Comey affair”. They won’t give him a break, and know sooner rather later he will say something to provide them cover.
For today though let’s just quote some of his no holds barred words:
– “If you choose the path of terror, your life will be empty, your life will be brief, and your soul will be condemned”.
– “Drive them out! Drive them out of your places of worship. Drive them out of your communities. Drive them out of your holy lands, and drive them out of this earth”.
– “Terrorists do not worship God. They worship death. If we do not act against this organized terror, then we know what will happen and what will be the end result”.
– “Heroes don’t kill innocents. They save them”.

No doubt some left wingers will say “but he didn’t say Radical Islamist Terrorist”, but can you imagine Obama saying anything like he did?

On to Isreal today. Let’s hope it continues to go well.

Anthony Weiner Pleads Quilty:

You heard about his plea and the likely sentence he will get. But did you hear this on the MSM?
Weiner got his start in politics working as an intern for Chuck Schumer when he was a congressman in 1985. He then used his relationship with Schumer to catapult his own political career. In 1988 he became Weiner’s district director. In 1991 Weiner won a council seat within Schumer’s district. He was just 27-years-old, the youngest Council member in the city’s history.
In 1998, Schumer decided to run for senate and Weiner opted to run for his congressional seat. Schumer endorsed him.

Somehow the Schumer connection gets little coverage, imagine if it were Trump or Bush, would that be the same?

Did you hear about this Fox Firing?

This story seemed to be buried late Friday but Bob Beckel, a co-host of the prime-time talk show “The Five,” was fired after an African-American employee accused him of making a racially insensitive remark.
Beckel was just recently brought back after being let go for “personal issues” in 2015.
He is one of the leading left voices in the nation for a long time. In 1984 he managed Democratic candidate Walter Mondale’s campaign against Ronald Reagan. (They won Minnesota, lost the other 49 states).

Beckel getting fired is the result of the new FoxNews no leniency policy. What a surprise that the first one impacted is a liberal for racially insensitive remarks.

Major Obamacare Court Case Ruling Expected Today:

House Republicans won a court ruling that said the payments were unconstitutional because Congress never voted for them. But an appeal by the Obama administration put that decision on hold.
Today the Trump administration may drop the legal appeal that has kept $7 billion in annual cost-sharing subsidies flowing to insurance companies.
Without the cash, insurance companies will sharply hike their rates or abandon the health-insurance exchanges altogether.

The politics here is this.
Experts say pulling the funds could hasten the law’s “death spiral. Trump’s team thinks it could drive the Democrats to the table to work on a replacement.
On the other side insurers and health-care lobbyists are pleading with Congress to keep the money coming.
Big decision today.

The Ratings:

Msnbc continues its run riding the wave of anti Trump stories. They outright won Primetime. Here’s the latest from last week (Thursday).
