Pass this on. Let the public know what happens to associates of the Clintons!
And this list does not include the four dead Americans in Benghazi that Hillary abandoned!
HILLARY FOR PRESIDENT? SURELY YOU JEST!!
According to the propagandists for the centralization of the American national government in 1787, known euphemistically today as “Federalists,” the size, scope, and diversity of the United States is supposed to make such looting impossible. The claim that a larger and more expansive government produces more freedom may seem counterintuitive to some, but such is the proposition taught to American school children year after year.
We have James Madison, and specifically his Federalist Paper No. 10, to thank for the popularity of this rather dubious theory.
In the essay, Madison’s position is that large expansive republics are superior to small limited republics because they balance a variety of “factions” (by which he meant interest groups and voting blocs) against each other and prevent any single group from unduly influencing the government. In a small republic, Madison argued, small factions are able to easily take control of the state’s resources or the state itself. Included among these factions is any large voting bloc with similar interests. The majority and its alleged penchant for the oppression of the minority can be controlled by cancelling out the interests of local majorities at the national level with majorities from other states, thus leading to a balanced population in which no particular faction can gain an upper hand.
Madison’s purpose was to demonstrate that if the American states were allowed to remain largely independent, as they indeed were in 1787, they would degenerate into despotism, but if the states were all consolidated into one federal system, the different factions within the many states would be balanced out and no group or alliance could ever take control of the new government.
The U.S. government’s and news media’s demonization of Putin (who’s no saint) should not be allowed to overshadow the fact that America’s rulers have needlessly provoked the Russians, the coup in Kiev being just the latest example. In 1998, the architect of the postwar containment policy, George Kennan, warned that humiliating Russia by expanding NATO “is a tragic mistake.”
Must we learn this the hard way?
The Health Care Compact is Gaining Momentum
By Leo Linbeck III
Republicans and Democrats in Washington DC deeply disagree about what to do on health care. Republicans want to repeal and replace; Democrats want to fix Obamacare.
But amidst all of the partisan bickering and deadlock, both groups agree on one thing: Washington DC should decide for everyone.
And why not? Regulating 1/6th of the economy gives them enormous power; controlling more than $1 trillion a year in spending helps them make friends and punish enemies; and when it’s time for re-election, big insurance, pharma, hospital, and lobbyists become easy marks for donations to their campaign.
There is another way to fix health care: give states a way out of the centrally controlled system designed, built, and operated by Washington DC bureaucrats, lobbyists, and policy wonks.
It’s called the Health Care Compact. It is a grassroots-led, bottom-up reform that will allow the repeal of Obamacare on a state-by-state basis, cut up to $3.6 trillion out of federal spending over the next 10 years, and rebalance our system of federalism by allowing control over health care to move from the federal to the state level. And it is a strategy that can be replicated in other policy areas, from education to campaign finance.
This is not a drill; it is not a white paper idea; it is a real, live campaign that is gaining traction. The Health Care Compact has already passed a dozen state legislatures and been signed into law in nine states – including Kansas this week – and more states are coming. Rep. James Lankford of OK, chairman of the House a Republican Policy Committee, has introduced a bill – HJR 110 – that provides Congressional consent. And it is a program that can solve the biggest challenge facing conservatives on health care: how to bring together grassroots activists and establishment Republicans and be FOR something, rather than just against Obamacare.
I am excited to do a webinar next Thursday, May 1. On that webinar, I will cover the basics about the Health Care Compact – both the policy and the politics – and answer questions.
The Health Care Compact is gaining momentum. Join me on May Day to learn how you can make a difference in this revolution in health care governance.
Together, we can turn a Washington, D.C. failure into an America success.

Yesterday, Mississippi Gov. Phil Bryant (R) signed into law a bill protecting the health and safety of women and the lives of unborn children by limiting late-term abortion after 20 weeks.
At 20 weeks—five months—of pregnancy, unborn children are capable of feeling pain and women are at significantly increased risk of the negative health effects of abortion.
As Charmaine Yoest, Ph.D, president of Americans United for Life, explains:
A woman seeking an abortion at 20 weeks (five months) is 35 times more likely to die from abortion than she was in the first trimester. At 21 weeks or more, she is 91 times more likely to die from abortion than she was in the first trimester.
Failing to protect the health and safety of women and defend the lives of unborn children from late-term abortion has made United States’ policy on abortion extreme among developed nations.
The U.S. is one of only seven countries—including North Korea, China, and Vietnam—in which late-term abortions after 20 weeks are allowed. As a recent report from the Charlotte Lozier Institute details:
The United States is within the top 4% of most permissive abortion policies in the world (7 out of 198) when analyzing restrictions on elective abortion based on duration of pregnancy.… The clear norm among countries that permit elective abortion is to limit abortion to before 20 weeks gestation, and elective abortion is more commonly limited to 12 weeks (the first trimester).
Protecting women and children from the harms of late-term abortion is a stance consistent with the views of the majority of Americans. Two-thirds of Americans—including 60 percent of women—believe late-term abortion should generally be illegal. And 80 percent generally oppose abortions in the third trimester, when the child can live outside the womb and women are at a much greater risk for complications.
As more states take steps to protect unborn children and their mothers, we move closer to the day when both culture and law reflect the truth that every human being—from the moment of conception—is a person with intrinsic value who possesses the right to life. That fundamental human right doesn’t belong only to the strong and the powerful. It belongs to every human being—regardless of age, dependency, or ability.
Government has a duty to protect the weakest in society and to recognize the inherent value of all human life. A country founded to protect unalienable human rights should not deny those rights to the most vulnerable children in our society merely because they are small, dependent, disabled, or simply inconvenient.
