    Yes, it would. Does the Democratic Big Brass care? No, they don’t.

    The Deep-Pocket Push to Preserve Surprise Medical Billing
    Excellent and informative.

    Unless the Democrats Run Sanders, A Trump Nomination Means a Trump Presidency
    I had never even heard of this prediction. The author was wrong about some of the details, but he was right about so many others I’ve bookmarked his author-page. The truth is out about Trump, and he won’t be running against Hillary this time. That said, if the DNC rams Biden down our throats we may be looking at Trump’s Second Term. Hillary was clearly a monster, but there wasn’t any evidence the woman was senile. As I’ve said, no matter who comes out ahead in a Trump-Biden contest, everybody would lose. And so would Planet Earth. Not that the DNC gives a damn….

    Trump skeptical of using foreign spies to collect intel on hostile countries, sources say
    In the absence of evidence to the contrary, I’m assuming this is some more CNN BS.

    Hilarious.

    The Warmongering Post meanders around about the importance of Social Security, and speaks of home ownership, but nary a word about a decent system of national health care. Sander’s role in being responsible for the “federal report” is buried down in the piece as well. Can’t connect “Sanders” and “solution”. No, that is something Bezo’s Blog most definitely doesn’t want to do.

    The One Thing No Israeli Wants to Discuss
    This was some very, very slick propaganda for the Apartheid State. My first thought was to write a chapter and verse refutation, but it became clear the NYT hack had done a Hasbara version of the Gish Gallop. Why should I waste my time with this jackass? The NYT has, at least in recent times, been vomiting out some real lunacy. And they have suitable staff writers on hand to create and push the crap. Bret Stephens is not an aberration. Neither is this very recent piece about the 737 Max. Because this is thousands of words long, here is a handy outline of what it says:

    Blame the pilots.
    Blame the training.
    Blame the airline standards.
    Imply rampant corruption at all levels.
    Claim Airbus flight envelope protection is superior to Boeing.
    Fumble the technical details.
    Stack the quotes with lots of hearsay to drive the theme.
    Ignore everything else

    Obvious conclusion: whatever happened with those two Max crashes was NOT Boeing’s fault.
    Likewise with this Apartheid state article they’ve published: When God’s Favorite People steal your land and water and casually murder your friends and relatives, you are NOT allowed to fight back. The prospect of a Zionist enduring anything resembling “payback” is unthinkable.

    My deduction after reading this is that Nancy Pelosi must be very pleased with herself.
