OBAMACARE “DEATH SPIRAL”
Obamacare “is in a death spiral.”
— Hugh Hewitt said on Sunday in comments on “Meet the Press”
That statement is completely false, according to Politifact.
But Meet the Press Host Chuck Todd, who is turning to an overpaid listening post, never bothered to correct Hewitt, who has problems with the truth, and simply state the facts:
These are the facts about Obamacare, according to Politifact:
Here is also a guide to the Republican Congress’ health care bill:
If Fox got rid of Trump’s lapdog, Sean Hannity, in an attempt to salvage the network’s integrity and credibility, it would be like putting an air freshener inside an outhouse to improve the quality of the air.
It wouldn’t make a difference at Fox, and nobody would notice.
Fox’s owner Rupert Murdoch is a ratings whore. He and his underlings have made the hiring of network “talent” like Sean Hannity and Bill O’Reilly into an art form.
Albert Einstein once said: “Only two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity, and I’m not sure about the former.”
Nobody understands this better Murdoch.
He is a communications master of milking the stupid, paranoid, ignorant and fearful along with making racists comfortable with their racism.
But in America this isn’t rocket science just attend a Trump rally.
Koppel is right about Hannity’s world: “Ideology is more important than facts.”
A world were truth is abandoned, integrity has a For Sale sign around its neck and reality is filtered through the skewed lenses of demagogues, conspirators and abject liars.
Koppel’s blistering words ended up on many websites and in social media because he said what most of us know already know about Hannity.

Many were glad that Koppel looked Hannity in the eye and used his words to pour a bucket of cold water over Hannity’s three-dollar, half-smile and on his “You’re a great American” long-running hypocrisy on Fox.
THE RIGHTS OF THE UNBORN
The Texas Senate passed a controversial bill last week that critics argue would empower doctors to lie to pregnant women, according to a story on the Huffington Post.
Senate Bill 25, which will now be sent to the Texas House, prevents parents from suing their medical provider if their baby is born with disabilities, even if that doctor discovered the condition during routine prenatal testing and failed to inform the parents, the story stated.
These shameless hypocrites try to circumvent or create new laws to fight for the rights of the unborn.
But as soon as the child leaves the womb and is in need of special needs programs, if it needs free school lunches or the child’s family needs food stamps or other social programs, they are willing to have their
Hypocrite-in-Chief and many in the GOP are proposing massive cuts to slash many of these programs that help children.
But Trump wants to spend $64 billion on submarines, tanks, nukes, faster jets and new aircraft carriers.
Some of these weapons like tanks are no longer needed or have very limited use on battlefields, according to experts.
Here are some facts about America’s military budget:
