BREAKING SHOCK POLL : California Voters Wants Democrats to Work With Trump

The majority of California voters want Democrats to work with President Trump. Yes, you heard right. A new poll conducted by UC Berkely, of all places, has found that 53% of Californians want to get stuff done. From Breitbart A new poll by the Institute of Governmental Studies (IGS) at UC Berkeley shows that a majority of registered voters in California want the state’s elected Democrats to work with President Donald Trump rather than to resist his agenda. The poll reveals that “by a 53% to 47% margin, slightly more voters prefer that when state leaders disagree with the president they should try to work with him even if it means making compromises, rather than opposing him ...

The most telling feature of Melissa Mackenzie’s post about the decision of House Speaker Ryan and President Trump to reopen negotiations with the “100-Percent-Of- Nothing” caucus is the New York Times report to which she refers. The Times claims, “House Republican leaders and the White House, under extreme pressure from conservative activists, have restarted negotiations on legislation to repeal the Affordable Care Act.” This is Orwellian BS. It isn’t the GOP leadership or Trump that have been “under extreme pressure.” It is, rather, the capricious members of the House Freedom Caucus who have been feeling the heat. The President has been hammering ...

A U.S. airstrike in Mosul could have caused the largest civilian casualties since the start of the Iraq War. U.S. military officials are investigating an airstrike in Mosul, Iraq's second largest city which has been mostly occupied by ISIS since June 2014. Iraqis have said up to 200 civilians could've been killed in the strike, and an initial review by the U.S. military found that "scores" of civilians were killed after a building hit by U.S. airstrikes collapsed a few days later, as The New York Times reports. U.S. investigators are now trying to find out whether the airstrike caused the building to collapse or whether ISIS may have detonated an explosive there instead. ...

Trey Gowdy was not mincing words when he went after Chuck “Crybaby” Schumer for calling on Intel Chair, Devin Nunes to be replaced by global stooge Paul Ryan. Schumer criticized Nunes for telling the American people the TRUTH regarding classified developments and allegations that Obama spied on the Trump campaign. Gowdy thinks Chuck should mind his own beeswax because the chairman will do what is best for the American people. “I just love it when Senator Schumer gives Republicans advice on what we ought to do,” Gowdy said. “Devin is doing exactly what the chairman is [supposed] to do.” Watch the video here.

WASHINGTON (AP) -- President Donald Trump says he expects to make a deal on health care, even though his first attempt failed just a few days ago. Trump is hosting a reception for senators and their spouses at the White House. It attracted both Republicans and Democrats. He says the bipartisan crowd is "a very good thing" and predicts a deal on health care will happen "very quickly." He says: "I know that we're all going to make a deal on health care. And that's such an easy one." Trump also sees potential for working with Democrats on other issues like infrastructure. He says: "Hopefully it'll start being bipartisan. Because everybody ...

There’s now mounting evidence that Hillary and Bill Clinton, along with John Podesta have meddled with Russia. President Trump went onto Twitter to ask why congressional lawmakers aren’t probing the various deals, transactions, and connections former President Bill Clinton and Hillary Clinton have to Russia. From Breitbart “Why isn’t the House Intelligence Committee looking into the Bill & Hillary deal that allowed big Uranium to go to Russia, Russian speech,” read Trump’s first tweet, which was followed by, “…money to Bill, the Hillary Russian “reset,” praise of Russia by Hillary, or Podesta Russian Company.

There’s no proof of any connection between President Trump and Russia, however, Hillary and her cronies are definitely tied up tight with the Kremlin. ….and it’s just getting worse.

The Russia/Trump “collusion” story is the fakest news to come down the pike since the infamous “hands up don’t shoot” BS the lying liberal media irresponsibly pushed. This is why our media has no credibility. They are shoving the “Russia conspiracy” down our collective throats despite the fact that there is zero evidence of any wrongdoing. Meanwhile, there’s plenty of proof that Clinton and her campaign have close ties to Russia, but the liberal media ignores REAL NEWS in order to continue pushing anti-Trump FAKE NEWS. President Trump has had enough (can you blame him?) and is now calling out John Podesta for his Russian ties.

Republican leaders and rank-and-file members have been grappling with how to handle the House Freedom Caucus since most of them came to Washington in 2010's Tea Party wave. Now that they have defied President Trump, they're hoping he can finally make them fall into line. "When he tweets things like he did … it gives me cover to echo that," Rep. Tom Rooney, R-Fla., told the Washington Examiner about Trump's jabs at the House Freedom Caucus via Twitter. "The Republican House Freedom Caucus was able to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory," Trump tweeted Monday night, three days after enough of its members refused to back the healthcare bill crafted by ...

The GOP now looks ridiculous, and it may have passed up the opportunity of a lifetime to defeat the Left. According to the New York Times, ten moderates, 15 conservatives, and eight other Republicans would have voted against the Republican repeal-and-replace Obamacare Bill. So, then, 15 or so conservatives made it impossible to pass the bill favored by nearly every other Republican and by President Donald Trump. If that is the case, what we have here is another conservative example of purism and principle damaging another major opportunity to do good. The first purist conservative example were the Never Trumpers, who believed it was better for Hillary Clinton to be elected president and ...

Raul Labrador, R-Idaho, who appeared Tuesday on "Morning Joe" to discuss President Trump's failed healthcare bill, was asked first to explain why he opposes efforts by the federal government to get involved in paid family leave. The problem with the interview is that paid family leave is MSNBC's Mika Brzezinski's pet issue, and Labrador was not prepared for the question. It didn't go well for him.

Two days after Texas Rep. Ted Poe (R) left the Freedom Caucus, fellow Texas Rep. Brian Babin (R) wouldn't rule out leaving the group himself during an interview with The Hill Tuesday. “It’s something that will be a decision in the future, OK?” Babin said when pressed on whether he’s considering leaving the group of conservative hard- liners. Babin had planned to vote for the GOP leadership’s bill, titled the American Health Care Act, following ...

Conservative hard-liners are weighing a thorny procedural move. House Freedom Caucus conservatives who brought down the GOP’s Obamacare replacement bill are divided over whether they should try to force a floor vote on a repeal-only bill with a procedural tool that could put their GOP colleagues in a bind. Several of the group’s most rock-ribbed conservatives are already setting in motion plans to file a so-called discharge petition. The legislative mechanism forces the chamber to vote on legislation — in this case, one of the group member’s Obamacare repeal bills — after it garners more than 216 lawmakers' signatures. “We will show to the American ...

House Republicans won’t renew their effort to repeal the ACA and its taxes this year, likely delaying another attempt until 2019, lawmakers said March 27. The two committees responsible for designing the House’s failed Affordable Care Act repeal legislation have no plans to try again, Reps. Kevin Brady (R-Texas), chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee, and Chris Collins (R-N.Y.), a member of the House Energy and Commerce Committee, said. With midterm elections coming in 2018, the Republican effort to repeal the ACA is likely delayed until 2019, Collins told Bloomberg BNA. “The wounds are so deep and so raw,” Collins said of the failure to pass the repeal bill. ...

The inauguration of Donald Trump on January 20 means that, once again, the Republicans have absolute control of the government. The Republicans regained control of the Congress that they had lost during the last two years of the presidency of George W. Bush when House Republicans won a majority of seats in the 2010 midyear elections and Senate Republicans won a majority of seats in the 2014 midyear elections. Just like when the Republicans held a majority in both Houses of Congress during the last six years of Bill Clinton’s presidency, all that was lacking was a Republican president “to make America great again.” This happened two other times in recent history.

It seems as if every concession made to the Freedom Caucus is met with a new demand. I just returned from a barbecue place in conservative Mobile, ...

A group of about three dozen men stopped President Trump's healthcare bill cold. Who are they, and how much power do they have? President Donald Trump's first major legislative push came to a halt last week as the American Health Care Act (AHCA) failed to be given a vote. Much of the blame for the bill's failure was placed on the Freedom Caucus, a secretive group of Republicans who refused to get in line behind Speaker of the House Paul Ryan and Mr Trump. The Freedom Caucus emerged in 2015, in response to complaints that then-Speaker of the House John Boehner tried to jam through legislation in defiance of House rules - specifically, legislation they thought wasn't ...

Zollinger and Kingsley said they hope unifying the House’s conservative wing would mean more clout, making it harder for committee chairmen to refuse to hear their bills.

“I resigned from the Freedom Caucus because of this last bill, the Obamacare bill repeal and replace. We met with the President over an hour and half, Vice President Pence was there, members of the cabinet were there and the President was trying to work and compromise and get more things the Freedom Caucus wanted in the bill. Those things were added but it wasn’t good enough so at the end of the day, they were going to vote against the bill and I thought that was being obstructionist but we should have supported a bill that maybe wasn’t perfect but it was better than what we have so now we are stuck with Obamacare and that is why I resigned from the Freedom Caucus.” ...

Rep. Adam Kinzinger said Monday the House Freedom Caucus is torpedoing the GOP’s ability to govern, and said the party should look to work with Democrats to get things done on Capitol Hill. Mr. Kinzinger said the debate over health care showed that the House GOP is better off building a center-right coalition than trying to wooing “the so-called Freedom Caucus,” whose members, he said, typically are “never, ever, ever going to get to ‘yes.’” “They have been in existence for about three years and every time they have tried to come to the table they consistently move the goal post and they did that on President Trump,” Mr. Kinzinger said on ...
