Obamacare On The Ropes As House Follows Senate In Voting To Repeal – Breitbart

The House of Representatives voted Friday to approve Senate Concurrent Resolution 3, which sets in motion the repeal of President Barack Obama’s healthcare reform legislation, Obamacare, by a vote of 227-to-198, with nine Republicans voting against the repeal bill.

“This provided Congress with the legislative tools that we need to repeal and replace Obamacare,” said Speaker Paul D. Ryan (R.-Wis.), who spoke on the House floor before the vote. “This is the critical first step toward delivering relief to Americans who are struggling under this law.”

It is very rare for a speaker to take to the House floor and comment on a bill, so Ryan’s remarks signal the importance of the vote.

“The law is collapsing, the insurers are pulling out, and people can’t afford it,” he said.

“The deductibles are so high, it doesn’t even feel like you have insurance in the first place,” Ryan said. “This is a rescue mission. This is a necessary move and I urge all of my colleagues to do what is right.”

Nine Republicans voted with Democrats against the bill and no Democrats voted for the bill.

After Ryan was done, he shook hands with other Republicans and walked off the floor.

Although it is the custom for the speaker not to vote, Ryan did join the rest of his conference to support passage of the bill that does not truly repeal the 2010 Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. Rather, because it is a bill using the track set up to pass the federal budget, it only addresses the financial underpinnings of Obamacare, such as the fees, taxes and, subsidies. Future legislation would have to address the rules and regulations…

Report: California’s Bullet Train Hurtling Toward Multi-Billion Dollar Overrun – Los Angeles Times
.

.
California’s bullet train could cost taxpayers 50% more than estimated – as much as $3.6 billion more. And that’s just for the first 118 miles through the Central Valley, which was supposed to be the easiest part of the route between Los Angeles and San Francisco.

A confidential Federal Railroad Administration risk analysis, obtained by The Times, projects that building bridges, viaducts, trenches and track from Merced to Shafter, just north of Bakersfield, could cost $9.5 billion to $10 billion, compared with the original budget of $6.4 billion.

The federal document outlines far-reaching management problems: significant delays in environmental planning, lags in processing invoices for federal grants and continuing failures to acquire needed property…

Guccifer 2.0 Comes Out Of Hiding: I Breached DNC Network, The Intel Russia Report “A Crude Fake” – Gateway Pundit

Hacker Guccifer 2.0 came out of hiding and posted his first tweet since November on Thursday.

The obscure hacker admits he breached the DNC network in his latest post. He also says the Russia Report released by the CIA is a “crude fake.”

Guccifer 2.0 reported:

I really hope you’ve missed me a lot. Though I see they didn’t let you forget my name. The U.S. intelligence agencies have published several reports of late claiming I have ties with Russia.

I’d like to make it clear enough that these accusations are unfounded. I have totally no relation to the Russian government. I’d like to tell you once again I was acting in accordance with my personal political views and beliefs.

The technical evidence contained in the reports doesn’t stand up to scrutiny. This is a crude fake.

Any IT professional can see that a malware sample mentioned in the Joint Analysis Report was taken from the web and was commonly available. A lot of hackers use it. I think it was inserted in the report to make it look a bit more plausible.

I already explained at The Future of Cyber Security Europe conference that took place in London in last September, I had used a different way to breach into the DNC network. I found a vulnerability in the NGP VAN software installed in the DNC system.

It’s obvious that the intelligence agencies are deliberately falsifying evidence. In my opinion, they’re playing into the hands of the Democrats who are trying to blame foreign actors for their failure…

Julian Assange Agrees To Be Extradited To The U.S. In Return For Presidential Pardon Of Bradley Manning – Mad World News
.

.
The Founder of WikiLeaks, Julian Assange, just shocked the world with a huge announcement. He wants to make a deal with the devil. The 46-year-old Australian computer programmer and publisher has agreed to accept extradition to the US, saying he will leave the Ecuadorian Embassy where he has been under diplomatic asylum for almost 5 years, but only if Obama will grant him one huge favor.

Assange may be the most hated man on earth among liberals. Many credit Assange and WikiLeaks with exposing the rampant corruption in Hillary Clinton’s failed presidential campaign, so they’d love nothing more than to see him extradited. However, they’re sure to be shocked by the deal Assange is willing to strike to give them their wish…

Baby Kidnapped From Florida Hospital Found Safe 18 Years Later – One America News

A woman who was taken as a baby from a hospital in Jacksonville, Florida, in 1998 has been found safe, Florida authorities said on Friday, and the South Carolina woman she believed to be her mother has been arrested for kidnapping.

Kamiyah Mobley, now 18, was located in Walterboro, South Carolina, according to the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office, which confirmed her identity through DNA testing.

She appeared to be in good health and “a normal 18-year-old woman,” Jacksonville Sheriff Mike Williams said at a news conference.

“This young woman was abducted as a newborn, and she is going to need time and assistance to process all this,” Williams said. “She is taking it as well as you can imagine.”

The woman’s biological family was overwhelmed when they learned the news. It will be up to the victim to determine future contact, he said.

Authorities found Mobley through tips from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children. She was living under a different name established through fraudulent documents, the sheriff said, declining to release that name.

“She had an inclination beginning probably a couple of months ago that she may have been involved in this in some way,” the sheriff said.

The baby was only hours old when a woman, dressed as a nurse in a flowered smock and green hospital pants, abducted her from her mother’s room, according to the 1998 incident report…

Trump Effect: Lockheed CEO Pledges 1,800 New Jobs, Lower F-35 Costs – Breitbart
.

The CEO of the aerospace defense company Lockheed Martin, Marillyn Hewson, pledges to create an additional 1,800 jobs and significantly reduce the high cost of F-35 Joint Strike Fighter program previously criticized by President-elect Donald Trump.

“We are going to increase our jobs in Fort Worth by 1,800 jobs and when you think about the [F-35] supply chain across 45 states in the U.S. it’s going to be thousands and thousands of jobs,” Hewson said outside Trump Tower following a meeting with the president-elect.

“I also had the opportunity to give him some ideas on things we think we can do to continue to drive the cost down on the F-35 program, so it was a great meeting,” she continued.

The announcement is another victory for Trump’s promise to bring jobs back to America, with companies promising tens of thousands of additional jobs following his victory…

Would You Want To Board Flight 666 To HEL On Friday The 13th? Finnish Jet Flies To Helsinki (And It’s A 13-Year-Old Plane) – Daily Mail

A spooky Friday the 13th coincidence paired the widely-regarded number of the devil with Helskinki resulting in flight 666 to HEL.

The Finnair flight AY666 took off from Copenhagen at 12.15pm today and was expected to land in Finland at 3.50pm.

Although it got off to a bad start as the jet, which also happens to be 13-years-old, took of a minute late – it landed safely at its destination even making up nine minutes.

The flight has been running for years, but the airline said it becomes popular whenever it lands on Friday the 13th.

Last year, it happened on May 13, and landed three minutes late without any problems.

Pilot Juha-Pekka Keidasto has previously told RT: ‘It has been quite a joke among the pilots. I’m not a superstitious man. It’s only a coincidence for me,’.

‘If there’s some passenger who is anxious about this 666, our cabin crew is always happy to help them.’

Flight tracker Twitter account Flightradar24 poked fun at the coincidence, saying: ‘Would you dare to sit in row 13, on board Finnair flight 666 en route to Hel on Friday the 13th?’

Triskaidekaphobia is the fear of the number 13, which dates back to the late 1800s.

A specific fear of Friday the 13th is called Paraskevidekatriaphobia, which derives from the from the Greek word paraskeví meaning Friday, and dekatria meaning thirteen.

While the number 666 is widely regarded as the number of the devil, some argue the number is 616…

Jason Chaffetz Wants To Relocate Federal Agencies Away From Washington, D.C. – Daily Caller

Four of the five richest counties in the U.S. are Washington, D.C. suburbs – Loudoun, Fairfax and Arlington in Virginia and Howard in Maryland – so it is unsurprising that many Americans question the federal government taking money to prop up far-off elites?

One solution to the federal government being too expensive and out-of-touch is moving parts of it away from Washington, D.C., according to House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform Chairman Jason Chaffetz.

The Utah Republican explained that computers and other technologies mean there’s no reason that a federal agency headquarters must be physically located in D.C., instead of areas with much lower living costs…

How Venezuela’s Corrupt Socialists Are Looting The Country To Death – New York Post

Venezuela is no longer a country with a government, institutions and a civil society. It’s a geographic area terrorized by a criminal enterprise that pretends to govern, with a civil society made up of two sets of people: accomplices and victims.

More than 30 million of the latter.

The Hugo Chavez-led looting spree began in 2000. By “looting,” I mean fraudulent government contracts, a celebration of bribery, phantom payrolls across all government ministries, bogus government-grant programs, the sacking of Venezuela’s gold reserves and a massive currency-exchange scam.

More than $1 trillion has disappeared – some of it wasted on social programs that produced nothing – and a staggering amount has ended up in bank accounts in Andorra, Panama, New York, Hong Kong and Switzerland.

And the pillaging has turned Venezuela into a dystopian landscape. There are shortages of every imaginable foodstuff and basic necessity; diseases once thought eradicated are back with a vengeance; and a crime wave that has given Caracas the highest murder rate in the world.

Loving parents are putting their children up for adoption because they have nothing to feed them; the elderly are starving; patients with treatable conditions are dying in hospitals that lack basic medicine like insulin and oxygen, where vital equipment has been pilfered and emergency rooms operate without electricity. In a gruesome twist, even the morgues can’t handle the number of unclaimed bodies, so they rot in hallways…

Iowa Defunds Planned Parenthood, Cuts Off Libs’ Health Argument By Funding Comprehensive Clinics – Conservative Tribune
.

.
Iowa lawmakers moved quickly this week to end funding for Planned Parenthood, and they found a perfect way to use money that would have gone to the organization, redirecting tax dollars to health clinics that don’t perform abortions.

Republican Gov. Terry Branstad urged the Republican-controlled Congress to defund the organization during his annual Condition of the State address at the Iowa Capitol.

The governor was expected to resign soon – he’s been appointed U.S. ambassador to China – and will be replaced by Lt. Gov. Kim Reynolds. The Associated Press reported that a spokesperson for Reynolds said she supported Branstad’s statements.

By defunding Planned Parenthood, Iowa could stand to lose some $3 million of federal funding used for family planning services…

Man Gets Back At DMV By Paying His Auto Sales Tax With 300,000 Unrolled Pennies – Law Newz

A Virginia man became so frustrated with his local department of motor vehicles that he decided to strike back by showing up with five wheelbarrows full of change on Wednesday to pay the sales tax on a car he recently purchased.

Nick Stafford posted the entire backstory on his blog behind what culminated with him showing up at the local DMV with $2,987.45 worth of unrolled pennies to pay the sales tax due on a pair of vehicles he purchased last year. The pennies weighed over 1600 pounds.

According to Stafford’s account, the “DMV started counting the pennies using automated coin counting machines but the machines were jamming so they [had to start] counting the pennies by hand…”

He added, “As of right now it is 6:08 p.m. and all the DMV employees are staying late to finish counting.”

Stafford claims it ultimately took nearly 12 hours for the employees to complete counting the 298,745 pennies by hand.

During an interview with one local outlet, Stafford said he did all of this simply to “inconvenience” the DMV for not providing him with a phone number to call and answer questions he had about the vehicle purchase and titling process. He also filed several state records request lawsuits and claims to have spent an additional $1,000 in the process simply “to prove a point.”

Filing a lawsuit against the DMV “took time out of my day, so I brought pennies here to the DMV to register two vehicles – that is the reason,” Stafford said…

Dead People Doled Out $2.6 Billion Worth Of Food Stamps – Washington Free Beacon

Dead retailers redeemed more than $2 billion worth of food stamps, according to a new audit.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s inspector general reviewed billions of transactions through the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), also known as food stamps. It found that thousands of stores authorized to accept food stamps were using the Social Security numbers of deceased persons.

An audit released Thursday found instances of potential fraud where the Food and Nutrition Service issued food stamps through stores that claimed to be owned by children or the dead.

“We found that 3,394 authorized SNAP retailers (retailers) used Social Security Numbers (SSN) that matched SSNs of deceased people,” the inspector general said…

Trump Promises Full Report On Hacking In First 90 Days – Bloomberg

President-elect Donald Trump said his administration would produce a full report on hacking within the first 90 days of his presidency and accused “my political opponents and a failed spy” of making “phony allegations” against him.

“Totally made up facts by sleazebag political operatives, both Democrats and Republicans,” Trump said in a Twitter post Friday, adding in a later tweet, “My people will have a full report on hacking within 90 days!’’

In a flurry of early morning messages, the president-elect also suggested that the intelligence community had leaked damaging information about his alleged ties to Russia, after news reports published information about a dossier claiming the Kremlin had compromised him.

“Russia says nothing exists,’’ Trump said on Twitter. “Probably released by ‘Intelligence’ even knowing there is no proof, and never will be.’’

In messages sent before many Americans reported to work, Trump took to social media to share with the public his thoughts on a range of issues Friday, including congressional moves to repeal Obamacare – calling it the “‘Unaffordable’ Care Act” – and the testimony of his cabinet nominees which has sometimes differed from his stated views.

Trump also commented on the Justice Department’s internal probe into the FBI’s handling of Hillary Clinton’s use of a private e-mail server Friday, denouncing the reaction by Clinton aides who said again Thursday that Comey cost her the election…

Ukraine Attempted To Help Hillary Win By Sabotaging Trump And Colluding With DNC – Daily Wire

Failed Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton may have gotten help by the government of Ukraine, according to an investigation by Politico. An adversary of Russia since Kremlin-puppet Victor Yanukovych was booted from the presidential office, Ukraine’s government not only broke diplomatic protocol by questioning then-Republican candidate Donald Trump’s competence, but officials in Kiev reportedly “disseminated documents implicating a top Trump aide in corruption and suggested they were investigating the matter, only to back away after the election.”

Most notably, “they helped Clinton’s allies research damaging information on Trump,” Politico’s report alleges.

Ukraine’s meddling mirrored Russia’s alleged influence campaign to get Trump elected except for the fact that Kiev’s pro-Clinton push was far less systematically organized and methodically executed…

Obama Regime Used ‘Russia Blackmail’ Claim To Warm Israel Not To Trust Trump – Breitbart

U.S. intelligence officials warned their Israeli counterparts not to trust President-elect Donald Trump with intelligence secrets, citing alleged fears that Russia held blackmail information over Trump, according to a report today in Israel’s respected Yediot Ahronot daily newspaper.

The alleged blackmail information that U.S. officials reportedly warned Israel about seems to be in part referencing details contained in a debunked document of mysterious origin purporting to be an intelligence report alleging that Russia collected compromising videos and information on Trump.

In the report, investigative journalist Ronen Bergman writes of a meeting that took place “recently between Israeli and American intelligence officials (the date of the meeting is not mentioned to protect the sources of the report).”

Continued Bergman:

During the meeting, according to the Israelis who participated in it, their American colleagues voiced despair over Trump’s election, as he often lashes out at the American intelligence community. The American officials also told the Israelis that the National Security Agency (NSA) had “highly credible information” that Russia’s intelligence agencies, the FSB and GRU, were responsible for hacking the Democratic Party (DNC) servers during the elections and leaking sensitive information to WikiLeaks, which hurt Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.

The American officials further added that they believed Russian President Vladimir Putin had “leverages of pressure” over Trump – but did not elaborate. They were apparently referring to what was published Wednesday about embarrassing information collected by the Russian intelligence in a bid to blackmail the president-elect…

Neil Cavuto Tears Into CNN: ‘They Say Payback’s A Bitch’ – American Mirror

Fox News’s Neil Cavuto didn’t hold back when CNN began complaining about Donald Trump’s treatment of one of its reporters.

“How’s all that going down, CNN? How does it feel to be dismissed? Or worse, ignored?” Cavuto began his editorial segment “Common Sense” on Thursday.

“How does it feel when your feelings are hurt? When your reporters are singled out? And you’re treated unfairly, and unkindly – even rudely? What’s it like not to be liked? It’s not fun, is it?

“It’s not fun when you think you’re doing your job, but the guy you’re covering thinks you’re the piece of work. It’s insulting, isn’t it?” Cavuto said.

German Court Calls Synagogue Torching An Act To ‘Criticize Israel’ – Jerusalem Post

A German regional court in the city of Wuppertal affirmed a lower court decision last Friday stating that a violent attempt to burn the city’s synagogue by three men in 2014 was a justified expression of criticism of Israel’s policies.

Johannes Pinnel, a spokesman for the regional court in Wuppertal, outlined the court’s decision in a statement. Three German Palestinians sought to torch the Wuppertal synagogue with Molotov cocktails in July, 2014. The local Wuppertal court panel said in its 2015 decision that the three men wanted to draw “attention to the Gaza conflict” with Israel. The court deemed the attack not to be motivated by antisemitism.

Israel launched Operation Protective Edge in the summer of 2014 to stop Hamas rocket attacks into Israeli territory.

The court sentenced the three men – the 31-year-old Mohamad E., the 26-year-old Ismail A. and the 20-year-old Mohammad A.- to suspended sentences. The men tossed self-made Molotov cocktails at the synagogue. German courts frequently decline to release the last names of criminals to protect privacy.

The attack caused €800 damage to the synagogue. The original synagogue in Wuppertal was burned by Germans during the Kristallnacht pogroms in 1938. Wuppertal has a population of nearly 344,000 and is located in the state of North Rhine-Westphalia.

The court said the men had consumed alcohol and there were no injuries to members of the synagogue.

A 13-year-old who lived near the synagogue and noticed the flames informed the police. Several days before the fire, a person sprayed “Free Palestine” on a wall of the synagogue…

Mexico Comes To Table, Tells Trump They’ll Discuss Border Wall – Conservative Tribune
.

.
Every ludicrous doomsday theory liberals spouted about President-elect Donald Trump prior to his election in November has begun to unravel, including the one about him potentially damaging America’s relationship with our neighbors.

As an example, consider what Mexico’s new foreign relations secretary Luis Videgaray said this week. “(He) said Tuesday his country isn’t just willing to negotiate changes to the North American Free Trade Agreement, it wants to start talks as soon as possible,” the Associated Press reported.

And here was the kicker: “He (also) said Mexico is willing to negotiate over Trump’s plan to build a border wall.”

Apparently predicting the future is not a liberal strong suit.

During a televised address last Wednesday, the same day Videgaray was tapped to serve as the foreign relations secretary, Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto himself stressed the importance of negotiations…

Senate Panel Approves Special Waiver That Will Allow General Mattis To Become Secretary Of Defense – IJR

The Senate Committee on Armed Services passed a waiver to allow retired U.S. Marine Corps General James Mattis to serve as the next Secretary of Defense, bypassing the rule that would have kept him from taking the position with seven years of active duty service.

By a vote of 24-3, the Senate panel passed the waive following Mattis’ confirmation hearing Thursday. The three votes came from Democratic Sens. Kirsten Gillibrand (NY), Elizabeth Warren (MA) and Richard Blumenthal (CT).

On the subject of keeping civilians in charge of the Pentagon, Mattis said, “I recognize my potential civilian role differs in essence and in substance from my former role in uniform,” adding:

“Civilian control of the military is a fundamental tenet of the American military tradition.”

The rule preventing recently retired military personnel from becoming Secretary of Defense has only been exempted once, when the Senate waived U.S. Army General George Marshall in 1950.

After the hearing, Arizona Sen. John McCain, who chairs the committee, said the overwhelming support from Democrats during the panel vote to approve the waiver will be mimicked across the chamber for the next step of approval.

“Oh I think it was very strong support there on the waiver,” McCain said. “So that’s indicative of the kind of vote we’ll get on the floor.”…

Billionaire investor George Soros lost nearly $1 billion after the stock market rallied following Donald Trump’s surprise Election Day victory, The Wall Street Journalreported Thursday.

Sources familiar with the hedge fund manager’s trading said he remained cautious going into the November election and then made the mistake of becoming more bearish immediately after Mr. Trump’s win.

The stock market rallied on expectations that Mr. Trump’s policies would boost the economy, causing Mr. Soros’ trading positions to incur losses approaching $1 billion, sources told The Journal.

“Mr. Soros adjusted his positions and exited many of his bearish bets late last year, avoiding further losses,” The Journal reported…

L.L. Bean Stands Up To Screeching, Leftist Assclowns; Trump Tweets Support – Washington Free Beacon

Linda Bean, the granddaughter of L.L. Bean’s founder, said Thursday morning she will not back down from left-wing threats on “Fox and Friends.”

President-elect Donald Trump tweeted in support of Bean shortly after her appearance on Fox News.

Bean is a member of the board of directors for the L.L. Bean company, and she has recently been targeted by liberal activists for personally supporting Trump. Bean made a donation of $30,000 to the political action committee Making Maine Great Again in August.

The anti-Trump group #Grab Your Wallet has started a boycott against L.L. Bean for Linda Bean’s personal donation to a pro-Trump PAC.

“The reality is that there are serious repercussions for a company’s brand and bottom line when consumers learn it does business with the Trump family or helped to fund Donald’s rise to political power,” said Shannon Coulter, the founder of #Grab Your Wallet.

L.L. Bean responded to calls to boycott the company in a Facebook post:

We were disappointed to learn that Grab Your Wallet is advocating a boycott against L.L.Bean solely because Linda Bean, who is only one of 50+ family members involved with the business, personally supported Donald Trump for President.

L.L.Bean has been a family-owned business since it began back in 1912. L.L.Bean is a values driven company that has long been inspiring people to live life outdoors. For the last 105 years, L.L.Bean has been singularly focused on offering high-quality, satisfaction-guaranteed products and outstanding customer service in the Maine tradition…
