Kraft Heinz Foods will close 7 plants throughout North America in order to save money. Kerry and his fabulously wealthy 2nd wife, Teresa Heinz, largest Heinz stockholder, gave no comment as they sailed off to register their yacht in another state. No word yet from President Obama, Kerry’s boss. Limousine-Liberal outrage has been held back […]

Serenity was written by a flaming hippie. Yet the ultimate conflict is pitch perfect for tyrannical governments trying to remake human nature. Sure, the film is blemished by a preacher who doesn’t care about God, but there’s a nugget of good sense even in that scene.

“You don’t know what it’s like to work in the private sector. They expect results.” This was from a star of Saturday Night Live, for crying out loud! If you don’t recognize the quote, I will forgive you … eventually.

I’ll admit I had qualms about posting this last night because I thought it was too mean. You see, I like Lindsey Graham because he’s a decent human being. However, my Senator has become a terrible representative when it comes to supporting my values in the Senate. He voted to confirm two liberal women who […]

The Donald walks across the stage to the podium, smiling as he holds hands with Melania.

Promoted from the Ricochet Member Feed by Editors Created with Sketch. President Trump’s First Year: A Look Back

 

imageJanuary 20, 2018

Washington — “Unprecedented” is a word that gets thrown around too often in politics, especially in a business where history repeats itself with depressing regularity. For President Donald J. Trump, however, the word is apt as things have happened in his first year in office that have never happened before. At this rate, there won’t be a custom or tradition left untouched by the time his presidency is over. The incident with Senior United States Circuit Judge Maryanne Barry was the last straw for the president, but it was healthcare that unraveled his already tenuous relationship with his own party.

It’s safe to say that no one could have predicted the outcome of the attempt to repeal Obamacare, one of the president’s main campaign promises. With a Republican president, and the GOP controlling both houses of Congress, Democrats were bracing themselves for the end of the law that they fought so hard to pass. As it turned out, none other than their former adversaries would become allies in saving the law. Even today, six months later, the image of Paul Ryan, Marco Rubio, Ted Cruz, and every other Republican in the house voting to uphold the law seems surreal. “This was an easy call” said Speaker Ryan after the vote. “What the President was proposing — universal healthcare, single payer in disguise — made Obamacare the more free market alternative. For now, iIt’s the best we can do.”

President Trump is famously unforgiving when it comes to opposition, but he appeared willing to give his putative Republican allies a second chance when it became clear that Mexico was, in fact, not going to pay for the border wall. But any chance at reconciliation ended when Ruth Bader Ginsberg retired from the Supreme Court to become a columnist at The Nation. The President’s nominee to replace her, his sister, Judge Barry, was blocked by Republicans in the Judiciary Committee. Opposing a member of his own family was the final nail.

It just occurred to me that Ricochet is missing a great opportunity here. We should nominate one of our Contributors to join the already crowded Republican field, and I nominate . . . Pat Sajak!

Promoted from the Ricochet Member Feed by Editors Created with Sketch. Donald Trump: Ricochet’s 10,000th Member

 

TrumpThis came as quite a shock to me, but Donald Trump asked me to set up his Ricochet profile and settings for him until he can take over and post directly (I guess he liked my previous posts). Anyway, here’s his first post:

“Hello, everyone. I’m Donald Trump, and I’m pleased to announce that I am Ricochet’s 10,000th member! That’s right. The Donald has become the savior of your web site. Now, many of you are probably asking yourselves “How did he do it?”

“Well, I’ll tell you. I had to buy up all the memberships leading up to number 10K, and let me tell you this — it was a bunch. Your pitchman Rob Long couldn’t sell condoms to a pimple-faced teenage boy on a date with a high school cheerleader, much less a center-right web site to center-right conservatives. Don’t worry about it. Rob Long—you’re fired. Problem solved.
