Your Morning Cup of Links

Only in my wildest dreams are Republicans this clever. Fear not, Dems.

Deep down they really love us, I’m sure.

The F-35 will cost more than the Manhattan Project every year for the next fifty years. GET RID OF IT.

I forgot to include this excellent Kyle Smith post in the “does Obama love America as is or as he wishes it to be” section the other day.

“Patients given the bells included a frail 84-year-old dementia patient who was too weak to pick it up to ring for help.” Heckuva job, NHS.

“See if you can spot the pattern: The federal government decides that health insurance is a right, but also decides that traditional methods of evaluating health-insurance risk are unfair (read: “politically unpopular”), gets directly involved in the market, and health-care prices go way up; the federal government decides that access to mortgage credit is a right, but also decides that traditional methods of evaluating mortgage-borrower risk are unfair (read: “politically unpopular”), gets directly involved in the market, and housing prices go way up before crashing and causing a worldwide financial catastrophe; the federal government decides that access to student loans is a right, but also decides that applying traditional methods of risk evaluation to those loans is unfair (read: “politically unpopular”), gets directly involved in the market, and college prices go way up…”

LOL besieged American allies LOL WTF is wrong with these people?

I’m glad climate alarmists are finally admitting that they are in fact practicing a religion.

In a sane country, not ruled by entrenched interests and regulatory capture and populated by navel gazers, we’d abolish agencies like the VA and start over.

In yet another blow to VA Secretary Robert McDonald, a new report revealed the department has mismanaged claims for thousands of veterans who were due benefits, pensions, and funeral assistance. CBS News reported Tuesday that 13,841 veterans sent the Oakland, Calif., VA inquiries about veteran’s benefits that were stored in a file cabinet and ignored for years. The Veterans Benefits Administration ignored these letters even though they were required by law to respond with an application. In thousands of cases, veterans passed away without getting any response from the VA.

Oh look at that, the market works. Weird.

“Hillary Clinton is going to…promote an agenda based on the revolutionary notion that problems exist and should be solved.

Oh really? How many others are we aware of?

Smart. The less detail you provide, the easier it is to catch criminals I’m sure.

What about Otherkins? Seems Problematic. Also the word “FAG” in the middle seems Very Problematic. smh

Well, shit.

People who sleep for more than eight hours a day are more likely to have a stroke, research has shown – but experts do not know the reason why.

Foreign governments gave Hillary millions of dollars while she was SecState, but Rudy Giuliani expressed a personal opinion so you know what to do, media.

Maybe it’s time to shut the fuck up now GUY WHO VOTED FOR THE IRAQ WAR.

“You really shouldn’t listen to this Netanyahu clown. He approved of our invasion of Iraq. What a dope, amirite?”

“Sir, when you were in the Senate you voted to invade Iraq.”

“Shut up,” he explained.

Weird, I don’t hear any of the Lefty hypocrites who bitch and moan and mewl about money in politics complaining about this.

Poverty is not the problem, Part 10,634.

Godspeed, Rauner. It would be amazing if you could liberate Illinois from its self-imposed shackles, but I don’t see it happening.

We’re basically a banana republic at this point. That’s how bad it’s gotten.

The U.S. Treasury Department has rebuffed a request by House Ways and Means Chairman Rep. Paul Ryan, R- Wis., to explain $3 billion in payments that were made to health insurers even though Congress never authorized the spending through annual appropriations.

At issue are payments to insurers known as cost-sharing subsidies. These payments come about because President Obama’s healthcare law forces insurers to limit out-of-pocket costs for certain low income individuals by capping consumer expenses, such as deductibles and co-payments, in insurance policies. In exchange for capping these charges, insurers are supposed to receive compensation.

What’s tricky is that Congress never authorized any money to make such payments to insurers in its annual appropriations, but the Department of Health and Human Services, with the cooperation of the U.S. Treasury, made them anyway.

King Obama just unilaterally bailed out the insurance companies.

King Obama also bullied the FCC into approving net neutrality internet regulations the public wasn’t allowed to see (no doubt because they’re so wonderful and everyone will love them).



Last night Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration Russell George and Deputy Inspector General for Investigations Timothy Camus updated the House Oversight Committee on the status of Lois Lerner’s “missing” emails surrounding the IRS targeting of conservatives. In an exchange with Congressman Jim Jordan (R-OH), Camus revealed there is “potential criminal activity” involved in the disappearance and hiding of emails belonging to IRS officials involved in the targeting of conservatives between 2010 and 2012.
