Before we begin, let me share some rather hysterical news with you about the Left’s push to defeat the tax bill.
Theamericanwarrior.com published a story titled: “Pelosi bails on tax cut protest after only handful of activists show up”.
It reads: “A handful of folks are really steamed that Republican lawmakers are planning to lower taxes, and they gathered in [a] tiny conference room on Capitol Hill where House Minority Speaker Nancy Pelosi was slated to speak Monday. But the demonstration was so weak, MSNBC reports, Pelosi didn’t even bother to show up.”
“’These protests have never been like what we saw with the healthcare law,’ an MSNBC reported said as a camera man panned the crowd of a couple dozen mulled about in self-scheduling conference room 2456.”
Looking at the video showing the pathetically small crowd, I can’t help but to think back to some of Hillary Clinton’s rallies where an embarrassingly small amount of people actually bothered to show up.
The MSNBC reporter may have said that these kind of protests are never quite like the healthcare law ones, but even he should admit that this is pathetic. This kind of protest may not be as passionate as the ones for healthcare law, but if Pelosi didn’t even bother to show up, it just tells you how pathetic that protest was.
And what makes it more hilarious is the apocalyptic tone Pelosi used last week when talking about the tax bill. At a Capitol Hill press conference, Pelosi was asked the following question by a reporter: “Minority leader, at this news conference and on the floor you, Democrats talk about this bill often in very apocalyptic terms, but isn’t really what’s going on that many people are getting a very modest tax cut, and some people are getting a tax increase, while a lot of this is also going to business but it’s not the end of the world?”
To which Pelosi responded with: “No, it is the end of the world. This, healthcare, the debate on healthcare is life-death. This is Armageddon. This is a very big deal. Because you know why? There’s really a very hard way to come back from this. They take us farther, more deeply into debt. What can you do but raise taxes?”
Boy, there’s a lot to cover here just from that quote. Let’s start from the beginning.
I just love whenever the Left makes apocalyptic claims about things Trump and/or Republicans do. It just goes to show just how scared they are of this bill passing and how necessary it is to pass it. They wouldn’t be saying that if they didn’t have much to lose. And what’s one of the bigger things they lose? That’s what brings us to the next part.
Pelosi mentions healthcare. That the debate on healthcare is life-death. Why does she mention it? Because part of the tax bill eliminates the Obamacare mandate that essentially forces people to buy healthcare or pay a fine.
Eliminating the mandate will almost certainly mark the beginning of the end of Obamacare unless the mandate is restored. And that’s precisely why the Left is so deathly afraid of the bill. It further destroys Obama’s legacy.
Moving on to the last part of her response, she mentions debt. That this bill will take us farther into debt. I find it rather funny that after 8 years of Obama, this is the moment that she chooses to have any sort of "concern" for the national debt.
The Congressional Budget Office estimated the tax bill would add $1.7 trillion to national debt over the next decade. But, according to Breitbart: “The CBO’s estimates, however, do not account for any additional economic growth that could arise from tax reform”. In that decade, the government could make more money with a stronger economy and that additional $1.7 trillion would be insignificant if not effectively cancelled out.
Now, I’ve been talking about how Pelosi was presumably so embarrassed by the small crowd of protesters that she decided against attending the event, but I haven’t quite talked about if people really like the bill. Well, that’s where the Fake News media comes in.
According to CNBC: “Nearly half of Americans oppose GOP tax bill ahead of final votes, poll says”.
Ah, yes. The holy polls have shown us the way the American people think once again and they have never been wrong in the past. According to a poll ran by Monmouth University, 47% of people surveyed said they disapprove of the bill, with 26% of them saying they approve, 19% having no opinion on it and 8% saying they want to wait to draw a conclusion until they saw a final bill.
Another poll run by, funny enough, CNBC’s All-American Economic Survey said that 70% of people “believe their taxes in the next couple of years will either stay the same or increase.” Well either 70% of the people surveyed are massive idiots or these people are lying about how many people believe this garbage.
I believe most people understand the Left’s efforts to undermine Trump and everything (good) Republicans do. Over the last couple of years, these news sources have made a name for themselves for being highly untrustworthy, so why would I take anything they say to heart?
And most people, I believe, agree with me on that – as well they should. The media and the whole of the Left make baseless claims that this tax plan will serve to help the rich get richer and will increase middle-income Americans’ taxes when that’s not at all the case.
I’ve said before that this tax bill will help middle-income Americans a good deal and that businesses will be helped out a ton. Helping businesses this way will help to strengthen the economy, create more jobs and benefit just about everyone regardless of class. But the Left doesn’t want you to know that.
The Left wants you to believe this tax cut will be the end of the world, as Pelosi described it, and that only they are able to be fair when it comes to taxes even though it’s been their plans and bills that put the country in the mess it was and still somewhat is.
Not once did Obama’s GDP grow by 3% in a single quarter. Trump’s did multiple times in CONSECUTIVE quarters. This tax bill will only help the economy get stronger and will lift the tyrannical Obamacare mandate off people’s shoulders.
Do I think most people like the tax bill? Given the information we have, there’s little reason not to. Now, I won’t claim to speak for the whole country, unlike the Left, when I say that. But I do also think that most people no longer trust the media. And that distrust goes a long way for helping Make America Great Again.
While I won’t claim that most people do like the tax bill, I will logically assume that most people don’t believe the garbage the MSM spews about it and will draw their own conclusions about the tax bill without the influence of serial liars.
“Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the wicked, nor stands in the way of sinners, nor sits in the seat of scoffers; but his delight is in the law of the Lord, and on His law he meditates day and night.”
My dear friend, we have a fighter in the White House. While inside the beltway the Republican failure to repeal Obamacare last week was seen as the end of the story, our President doesn’t agree. Trump is now targeting Congress members’ healthcare plans to force them back to the negotiating table to repeal and replace Obamacare.
From Fox News:
‘The president's ultimatum to Congress: Figure out a way forward on health care, or lose a valuable insurance carve-out for you and your staff. The benefit allows part of their ObamaCare premium costs to be covered by taxpayers.’
You may not know this, but members of Congress and their staffers are not really exempted from Obamacare, but rather President Obama, through a convoluted maneuver, authorized them to receive a special subsidy, courtesy of taxpayers, that would absorb 72% of their health insurance costs. Why? Because back in 2010 staffers – yes, the SAME people who pushed for Obamacare – complained about the bill as they couldn’t afford it… Poor fellows! They can’t afford Obamacare and neither can the rest of us!
The bad news for our fellow Americans in Congress is, much like Obama was able to GRANT this special benefit, Trump is equally able to TAKE IT AWAY.
And that’s what Trump is threatening to do.
Just as a side note, in case you didn’t know: our beloved members of Congress, in each and every attempt to repeal Obamacare, inserted a rule to EXEMPT themselves from the law, bypassing the special treatment Obama granted them. Isn’t that nice?
In any case, our Commander in Chief wants the liars in Congress to get back to work and find a way to repeal the monstrosity that is Obamacare. That way they won’t need a subsidy – and you won’t have to pay for it…
The other bailout Trump is threatening to pull is Insurance companies’. As you know, Obamacare was designed to destroy Insurance companies – the whole idea was, insurance companies cannot set their price since only the Government can do so, and they cannot choose who they cover since Obamacare forces them to take anyone who wants insurance, regardless of risk. Over time, Insurance companies will go bankrupt one after another, but until then, democrats who authored the bill thought they needed to subsidize Insurance companies to get them to support the bill. CEOs would get their usual gigantic paychecks while sinking their companies. Because, as John Maynard Keynes famously said: in the long term, we’re all dead.
If Trump pulls both subsidies, it forces Congress AND Insurance Companies to go back to the negotiating table so that we get a better piece of legislation. No CEO would like to send his company to bankruptcy on his watch.
Now, these subsidies have been criticized by some Republicans since they were instituted back in 2013. Last week, they wrote a letter to Trump in which they say:
‘This fraud of instructing Congress to masquerade as a small business was the key to the scheme, because if members of Congress and their staff had signed up for ObamaCare under the individual exchange—as any other American losing employer coverage has to—they would have had to pay their own premiums. [Trump has] the power to end the scheme by directing OPM to rescind the Obama rule. [This policy is a] perfect example of the swamp-like atmosphere in D.C.’
Draining the swamp is a massive task, my friend. The swamp is deep and powerful. It’s been taking our money and liberties for decades. And it doesn’t want to lose its privileges. This is going to be a long fight – and it can get nasty from here. They won’t just sit back a watch Trump restore our country.
Our country is worth the fight, though. We just need to get the word out that this is not about Republicans versus Democrats – regular folks, that is. We should not allow ourselves to consider either side as the enemy. After all, only the elites are members of this swamp. You won’t find any Bernie supporter in the swamp. You’ll just find Bernie. Bernie supporters, just like the rest of us, are paying for this swamp - either with their tax dollars or with their lack of opportunities. So it’s our job to educate and preach to as many of them as we can. Just get the word out – don’t argue. Just reason. Some of them will understand, and some won’t. But it’s worth preaching because you never know – you might help convert a few.
Trust me – as a former liberal, I guarantee there’s hope. Some of them will never figure this out. But some, like me, will.

My dear friend, the deep state is deep indeed. The failure to repeal Obamacare last week not only shows how politicians lie through their teeth just to get elected, but it also shows where their loyalty is: WITH THE ELITES.
As you know, the Obamacare repeal (the skinny version and all previous versions) failed to pass last week. ‘Failed’ as in ‘we care so little about the American people and our own credibility that we’re not going to give them the satisfaction of the taste of SUCCESS’. No, my dear friend, the GOP is not in the business of helping you, the hard working American – it’s in the business of saving itself…as the RULING ELITES.
Don’t misunderstand – this ‘failure’ is a success for them.
You see, the intent here was NEVER to repeal Obamacare. They just used it for fundraising and get elected.
The intent here is to STOP TRUMP.
Now, the best way to stop Trump is to fail at repealing Obamacare, get voted out of office in the 2018 mid-term elections and add more democrats to both houses of Congress. Once this happens, Trump will be virtually stopped and his chances at re-election in 2020 will be slim. Not only that, there won’t be any other outsider willing to take any chances after Trump.
The 2018 GOP defeat will just be a lost battle for the elites – but the long term war against YOU, the American people, will be ultimately won by the elites as soon as the last ‘outsider’ is voted out of office in 2020. In the long run, the elites win.
Wasn’t it Mitch McConnell who wrote a book titled ‘The Long Game’? I haven't read it, but whatever is in it probably doesn’t show what Mitch McConnell really meant: the long game is all about keeping the elites in office. It’s all about keeping the deep state as deep and wide as possible.
You see, politicians are the real TAKERS in any economy. They produce NOTHING of real value that you and I would be WILLING to buy in the marketplace. Their only means of survival (or wealth creation, rather) is to take money FROM YOU, the real PRODUCER.
Government produces NOTHING.
Government TAKES from you: money, liberties and opportunities.
The more education you have, the more likely you are of figuring this out – so they silence thinkers and own public schools.
The more values you have, the more likely you are of feeling disgusted at what they’re capable of doing – things like this Obamacare business. ‘We said we were going to repeal Obamacare for 7 years, we now have a chance but won’t do it. We LIED to your face and you bought it. Tough luck. You’re an idiot for electing me. So be it. Now go back to work and don’t forget to pay your taxes – else I’ll use the full power of government to chase you down and incarcerate you if necessary. Capisce?’
Our fight, my dear friend, isn’t against them. They’re rotten, but like all of us, they’re headed somewhere. Where are they headed? Where is John McCain going after he dies – I know he probably thinks he’ll never die, but he will. Where is he headed?
Only God knows, but based on this TREASON and all the LIES, I would have to say he’s headed HELL BOUND.
Our fight isn’t against McCain – he’s toast no matter how you look at it. Our fight is against the powers of this DARK WORLD we live in – even the Bible says so. We have to recognize that OUR COUNTRY IS LOST FOREVER. There is no way that Obamacare will EVER be repealed and you can now expect government expansion to continue – not now, while Trump is in the White House. But you just wait until he’s voted out of office, and all hell will break lose. If you think the Obama years were bad, wait until another democrat or republican establishment gets back into the White House.
Forget about prosperity. Forget about freedom. Forget about peace.
Persecution will deepen. Political correctness will rise. Poverty will become pervasive.
The good news is this: Jesus Christ saves. If you really have the long term view – the real ‘long game’ – you know that, if you’re a Christian, you’re a child of almighty God. You are a citizen of Heaven and while your life here on earth will not be as good as it could be, courtesy of the deep state, you know heaven awaits you. You’re right now living in a Kingdom that’s out of this world – this should give you comfort. And this is something that John McCain and all the elitists will never understand. But who cares? You won’t find them in Heaven anyway.
Keep on praying for us, regular Americans – hard-working republicans and democrats – to open our eyes to see who really is behind all of this: Satan himself.
But even Satan, like McCain, will ultimately lose. Jesus is Lord, whether McCain 'accepts' this fact or not. And Jesus will ultimately judge all of them.
‘For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.’
Just Remember: Without Obamacare There WOULD BE NO Ryancare And We Wouldn't Be In This Democrat MESS
Let’s never forget that it’s Obama and his footmen in the democrat party who put us in this position. Without Obamacare there would be no Ryancare. So before you get too upset or happy (depending on which side you’re on) about last Friday’s ‘defeat’, let’s not lose sight of who put America’s health insurance industry in the terrible state that it is today: the democrats.
The good news is we have a president who’s very much interested in making your life better. Republicans may not agree now on what the best solution is for our health insurance industry, but sooner or later they’ll have to, if they want to renew their seats in Congress. At this point, they have everything they need to come up with a piece of legislation in which all viewpoints are considered.
This piece of legislation, it's clear, wasn’t meant to be. But not to worry. There’s a reason for everything and I believe there is a reason for this too.
In my experience when something doesn’t turn out the way I expected, somehow something better came afterwards.
Paul Ryan has demonstrated time and time again he's no effective leader – the fact that he put this piece of legislation without generating consensus beforehand is a good example of that. Good leaders don’t risk bringing up a new idea unless he or she has been able to sell it to key people first. The good news for Ryan is it’s not too late to learn.
Let’s put it this way: it’s a time for GROWTH for speaker Ryan. If he’s smart, he’ll learn from this setback. If he’s not…well, we might need another Speaker soon…
My fellow Americans, something better is likely in store for us. It doesn’t mean we just sit down and wait for things to happen – we must voice our concerns. At this point the best we can do is encourage Ryan and the rest of the Republicans in congress to IGNORE THE HEADLINES and WORK TOGETHER for a piece of legislation that’s going to bury Obamacare once and for all.
The next thing we have to do is be APPRECIATIVE. Yes, be appreciative of our freedom and prosperity.
Friends, if you thought Trump’s presidency was going to be easy you were deceived. We have to thank God for Trump.
Nothing that’s worth fighting for is easy. Nothing that’s worth fighting for is cheap.
When we have a good health insurance legislation, we’re going to protect it even more.
We tend to take our prosperity and freedoms for granted. All of us who voted for Trump know that freedom isn’t free, and that we were on a horrible path to tyranny.
But now is not the time to give up.
If you’ve ever done anything meaningful or difficult in your life, you know it takes many tries to get it right. And you also know you shouldn’t give up at the first sign of complication. Successful people overcome complications and don’t let the enemy deter them.
Think of the time when Moses went to speak with Pharaoh to ask him to free the Hebrew slaves. Pharaoh wanted nothing to do with it – he would not just let his slaves go. In the natural, there was nothing Moses could do, but important things usually don’t depend on people – they depend on God.
As the story goes, God sent plague after plague to Egypt until one day Pharaoh decided it was better to just free the Hebrews – after all, he could see that the Hebrew God was really working behind the scenes to free His people.
And then what happened?
Pharaoh regretted freeing the slaves and sent his men to chase the Hebrews…but God had a better plan. He parted the Red Sea to let the Hebrews through, but the waters closed on Pharaoh’s army killing them all.
I think it’s safe to say that passing a health insurance legislation is simpler than freeing the Hebrew slaves in Egypt.
So, don’t be discouraged – but don’t get distracted either. Forget the noise in the media. Forget the joy the democrats are feeling and focus on the goal: to make America great again.
But Moses said to the people, "Do not fear! Stand by and see the salvation of the LORD which He will accomplish for you today; for the Egyptians whom you have seen today, you will never see them again forever. "The LORD will fight for you while you keep silent."
We bring you the TRUTH that the Left denies you. You'll live a more joyful and victorious life, because the Truth will set you free...
