May, 2017, Part 1, The Unfolding Disaster That Is Obama Care: Small Businesses Want It Repealed, Competition Continues To Disappear, and Gruber Insanely Blames Trump

Every month for years now we have had to discuss how bad Obama Care is turning out to be under the continuing theme, “the unfolding disaster that is Obama Care.” This month is no different. As the legislation continues to march through America, driving up health care and health insurance prices as it serves as dead weight on economic growth, it cements its rightful place as the worst piece of legislation Washington has ever produced.

It never had a chance to be successful since it really never addressed the underlying root causes of our ever increasing health costs in the country:
  • Americans eat too much of the wrong kind of food, resulting in obscenely high obesity rates for the country.
  • Our food chain is infested with overdoses of high fructose corn syrup, salt, sugar, and other unhealthy additives.
  • Americans smoke too much.
  • Americans do not exercise enough.
  • The country is in serious need of health care tort reform.
  • Barriers to insurance company competition across state lines need to come down.
  • Obama Care never “followed the money” to find out who is actually profiting from the ever escalating healthcare costs in this country and how to get those factors under control.
  • Obama Care never got the immense amount of fraud and abuse in current government healthcare programs, Medicare and Medicaid, under control in order to save money to efficiently fund other government health care initiatives.
  • Obama Care never put serious research money towards curing the major diseases that drive high healthcare costs such as high frequency cancers and dementia type diseases.
You cannot resolve any problem unless you understand and address the underlying root causes. No difference here: Obama Care legislation never addressed these listed root causes and thus, has no chance of ever being successful.
But it is not just missing the root causes of our healthcare costs that makes Obama Care so horrible. It resulted in millions of Americans losing access to their favored doctors, hospitals, and insurance policies. It has caused insurance premiums, deductibles and copays to escalate substantially. It will likely add trillions of dollars to the national debt. It has exposed millions of Americans to higher than necessary identity theft chances. It has created government bureaucracies that are wastefully spending taxpayer wealth and being exploited by criminal elements. It has stifled economic growth and job creation.

These are just a sample of the types of idiocy that we have been reviewing for the past several years in this blog relative to Obama Care., To read those past posts, just enter the phrase, “the unfolding disaster,” in the search box above.

1) We have often discussed the reality that many small businesses have been crushed by Obama Care’s requirements and regulations. It has caused their costs to increase, they have had to reduce staff or change staff from permanent to temporary ino order to survive, their taxes have gone up, or they just went out of business because of the regulations. 

Thus, it is not a surprise that in a recent poll, 60% of small business owners said they want Obama Care repealed:
  • According to Philip Hodges, writing for the Eagle Rising website, a February survey of 700 small business owners found that 60% of them wanted Obama Care repealed.
  • The primary reason given for their position is skyrocketing insurance premiums that was caused by a lack of competition in the Obama Care insurance market as large and smaller insurers fled the Obama Care market, unable to make a profit in that market.
  • Quoting a CNBC article: “It is a trend affecting business owners in all states. Ross Coulter, 49, and his wife, who run a two-person public relations firm in Dallas, have been hunting for a new health insurance plan after Humana notified them it was discontinuing their current one. They had no immediate plans to slow their search after the House vote. They are looking for an affordable replacement by July 1 for the high-deductible plan, for which premiums are $900 a month for the couple and their three children. The only plans that are comparable would be a $400- or $500-a-month increase,” says Coulter, who is now considering options like a Medi-Share plan, run by Christian Care Ministry, in conjunction with a cancer-coverage policy.
  • CNBC went on to report on a situation that we have covered many times before, namely that Obama Care policies are so expensive that customers buy the high deductible plans to reduce their monthly premium payments but then cannot afford the deductible payments when they need the insurance because the deductibles are so high: “When Paula Muto, a vascular and general surgeon in Lawrence and North Hanover, Massachusetts, looked into unpaid bills in her solo private practice recently, she found that many were for patients who had high-deductible plans. It was the people with insurance, that couldn’t pay the deductibles, that weren’t paying us,” she says.”
The unfolding disaster that is Obama Care continues to unfold disasters.

2) One of the people most associated with the disaster known as Obama Care is one of the so-called architects of the plan, MIT economist Jonathan Gruber. Obviously, as an architect of such a disaster, it is not unexpected that he would name others of the failures of this wretched piece of legislation.

But at some point, you can stretch that blame game too far in who you blame for the failures as Gruber recently did when he blamed, of all people, Donald Trump for the failures of the law. Let’s keep in mind that Gruber’s work and the passage of Obama Care was over seven YEARS ago, much before Trump became President less than five MONTHS ago.

Come on Professor Gruber, insurance companies were fleeing the Obama Care policy market long before Trump became President. Enrollment numbers were falling 50% short of your promises long before Trump became President. Premiums and deductibles of Obama Care policies were skyrocketing long before Trump became President. Obama Care state co-ops were failing long before Trump became President. The law was already in place long before Trump became President and he has made no changes to that law since becoming President.

Wow, you know you are desperate to place blame and deflect attacks on your reputation when you are blaming someone retroactively seven years. Pathetic. Not not unexpected when you consider that Gruber considered Americans too stupid to understand the law he helped create: “Lack of transparency is a huge political advantage. And basically, call it the stupidity of the American voter or whatever, but basically that was really really critical for the thing to pass,” Gruber stated during one health care conference.

Another time, Gruber self-admitted that the Obama administration pushed through the so-called Cadillac tax, a tax on certain premium health care plans, “by mislabeling it, calling it a tax on insurance plans rather than a tax on people, when we know it’s a tax on people who hold these insurance plans.”

Surprised that he did not blame Trump for the American voter being stupid.

3) According to a recent Associated Press article, the carnage of health insurers leaving the Obama Care market is continuing:
  • After pulling out of several states previously, after losing $450 million on Obama Care policies, giant insurer Aetna announced that it will also pull out of Nebraska and Delaware next year after expecting to lose $200 million on Obama Care policies this year.
  • This will further increase the number of counties across the country that have only one Obama Care insurer operating in that county in 2018.
  • With access to only one Obama Care insurance company available, insurance industry experts expect the costs of those Obama Care policies to increase due to lack of competition.
  • Things continue to get bad in Iowa with Aetna and Wellmark Blue Cross leaving the state and another Iowa insurer, Medica saying that its "ability to stay in the Iowa insurance market in any capacity is in question at this point."
  • When Humana pulled out of Tennessee, it left 16 Tennessee counties with NO Obama Care insurance options, a void that has since been filled by only one other company.
  • Blue Cross-Blue Shield is now the only Obama Care insurer in one third of the country’s 3,100 counties.
So much for the Gruber and Obama promise that Obama Care would result in a robust competitive environment that would drive down the cost of insurance for all Americans.

The disasters continue to unfold: lack of competition, disasters for small businesses, and the blaming of Donald Trump for something he had absolutely nothing to do with. More disasters to follow shortly.

May, 2017, Part 12, Political Class Insanity: More Sex Perversion In DC, Chelsea Says Something Stupid (Again) And Honoring A Murdering Terrorist In NYC

It is the beginning of another month which means it is again time to review the latest political class insanity from Washington and around the world. Political class insanity takes many forms including the wasting of taxpayer wealth, criminal fraud within government programs, inane and stupid political quotes and actions, the inability to create and implement effective and efficient government programs, stupid and ill performing economic policies and strategies, and other forms of insanity that continue to evolve and surprise and shock us.

Today and for all of the insanity posts this month, let’s start off with a welcome piece of honest political dialog. It comes from a State Department spokesperson. Mark Toner, who is about to start the daily State Department press briefing. In a joking matter, he makes the following quote: "Welcome to the State Department. I think we have some interns in the back. Welcome. Good to see you in this exercise in transparency and democracy."

He then burst out laughing at his own quote, indicating he also knew what a joke the Obama administration has been, especially Mr. Toner’s State Department, when it comes to cover ups, lack of transparency, denial of Freedom of Information Act requests, the prosecution of whistleblowers, etc. But at least it was a little refreshing to finally hear some actual honesty out of Washington as we see from the actual clip of the news conference:


With that context of honesty, let’s see what other insanity has been going down:

1) Earlier in this month’s review of political class insanity we reviewed some sexual perversion insanity of some Washington notables, a former Congressman and former Secret Service agent who had been assigned to White House duty. The former Congressman was Anthony Weiner who will likely spent about two years in jail for sexting with a 15 year old girl. The Secret Service agent will likely see upwards of twenty years in jail for multiple sexting episodes with underage girls while on duty.

Unfortunately, we are going to have to go down this road again since according to reporting by NBC News:

  • An NBC News report put forth the accusation that Hillary Clinton, while Secretary of State, shut down an internal investigation into a pedophile ring operating right inside the State Department.
  • This squashing of the investigation was to protect long time State Department higher ups and a sitting U.S. ambassador.
  • As a result, Trump has instructed the Justice Department to step up an investigation to the possibility that this disgusting and repulsive behavior had occurred and to determine what should be done about it.
  • Specifically, the NBC News broadcast including the following reporting: ““Allegations of prostitution and pedophilia, and allegations that those crimes were somehow covered up or not looked into. So the State Department this morning is having to respond to those claims, and those investigations involve misconduct by State Department officials, including an Ambassador and security agents attached to then secretary of state, Hillary Clinton. The allegations are that these investigations were whitewashed, quashed altogether, and that those orders came from high up. NBC has obtained documents relating to ongoing investigations into some disturbing allegations involving State Department personnel and at least one ambassador. A State Department memo says, quote, “the Ambassador routinely ditched his protective security detail in order to solicit sexual favors from both prostitutes and minor children. The memo also says a top State Department official directed State Department investigators to “cease the investigation” into the ambassador’s conduct.” It’s just one of what another document describes as “several examples of undue influence” from top State Department officials.”

Another day, another child related sex scandal in Washington. Pathetic and disgusting.

2) Sometimes it is not just politicians who say and do stupid things, often their children get into the stupidity act also. Such was the case when Chelsea Clinton was speaking as part of a forum and tried to make us believe that climate change and child marriages around the world were interconnected, as if climate change causes more children to be married off while they were kids.

Yes, every ill in the world can be blamed on global warming and climate change. Of course, she provided no hard evidence or science that this was actually true, just a grandiose theory that everything hinges on climate change. Of course, Twitter was quick to respond to such idiocy:


  • Harrison Bergeron tweeted: Please. Is there anything that ISN'T caused by climate change?
  • Gristle McThornbody tweeted:  Oh FFS, now you're just gluing bumper stickers together
  • Road SWVA was more specific: What an idiot.

The actual quote right out of mouth can be seen at:


I would tend to agree with SWVA.

3) Let’s finish up today with some really gross political class insanity from the mayor of New York City, Bill de Blasio. But first, some background:

  • Oscar Lopez Rivera was the leader of a Puerto Rican terrorist gang from the 1970s who advocated for the independence of Puerto Rico.
  • His terrorist gang, FALN, carried out over 100 terrorist bombings in this country.
  • One of the terrorist attacks hit the famous Manhattan Fraunces Tavern in 1975 that killed four innocent people.
  • He was eventually arrested in possession of six pounds of dynamite in his Chicago apartment. He was sentenced to 55 years in prison in 1981 for his terror activities after declaring that “I am an enemy of the United States government.
  • He served about half of his sentence when Obama released him.

You get the idea, this is a very bad, violent and sick individual that was willing to kill innocents to attain his goals.

Which gets us back to de Blasio. Unfortunately, some people think that terrorist Rivera deserves to be featured in the annual Puerto Rican Day parade in New York City on June 11. And Mayor de Blasio is in full support of this atrocity, justifying it as follows: “The organization he was affiliated with did things I don’t agree with, obviously, and they were illegal. I don’t agree with the way he did it. But he did serve his time,” adding that L√≥pez Rivera “renounced violence.”

Huh? How is this reasoning logical and sane? You disagree with the violence he incited, you disagree with his organization that bombed and killed, you understand that what he did was illegal but you am going to honor him anyway because,hey, he did his time? Insane.

And according to the New York Times which recently conducted an interview of Rivera, he did not actually renounce violence since in that interview he stated that: “We are a colonized people, and according to international law, that says all colonized people have a right to struggle for its independence, using all methods within reach, including force.” Including force, sounds pretty violent to me.

So sad that somehow a politician like de Blasio can get elected to lead a large city like New York and be so insensitive to the family and friends of people that were killed and maimed by this person for a cause that was never an overriding passion of the Puerto Rican community to begin with. And then to think that we are too stupid to see through his faulty logic to justify this atrocity. Insane.


That will do it for this month’s political class insanity, it has been a sad and pathetic look at how poorly our elected officials and government employees conduct themselves and how their interests and greed are only outshined by their idiocy and incompetence. More of the same next month, I am sure of that.

May, 2017, Part 11, Political Class Insanity: Congress Gets Hacked, The Rich Get Richer, The IRS as a Political Weapon

It is the beginning of another month which means it is again time to review the latest political class insanity from Washington and around the world. Political class insanity takes many forms including the wasting of taxpayer wealth, criminal fraud within government programs, inane and stupid political quotes and actions, the inability to create and implement effective and efficient government programs, stupid and ill performing economic policies and strategies, and other forms of insanity that continue to evolve and surprise and shock us.

Today and for all of the insanity posts this month, let’s start off with a welcome piece of honest political dialog. It comes from a State Department spokesperson. Mark Toner, who is about to start the daily State Department press briefing. In a joking matter, he makes the following quote: "Welcome to the State Department. I think we have some interns in the back. Welcome. Good to see you in this exercise in transparency and democracy."

He then burst out laughing at his own quote, indicating he also knew what a joke the Obama administration has been, especially Mr. Toner’s State Department, when it comes to cover ups, lack of transparency, denial of Freedom of Information Act requests, the prosecution of whistleblowers, etc. But at least it was a little refreshing to finally hear some actual honesty out of Washington as we see from the actual clip of the news conference:


With that context of honesty, let’s see what other insanity has been going down:

1)We have often talked about how the Obama administration shredded the First Amendment rights of millions of citizens when it used the IRS as a political weapon to deny non-profit status to Tea Party and other non-liberal organizations. Very serious stuff, the political class turning agencies against the citizens that support both entities because of legitimate free speech.

But it seems that shredding the First Amendment was not where it ended, based on very scary testimony in a court proceeding regarding the political weaponizing of the IRS,. According to a recent USA Today report on May 12, 2017 by Dan Horn:

  • IRS officials, testifying in court, claim that their lives are at risk in the Tea Party suit before a judge.
  • The judge has already ruled that there was a “strong showing” that the IRS had a systemic bias against Tea Party organizations.
  • During the court proceedings, former and current IRS executives, Lois Lerner and Holly Paz, testified that information in recent or future court filings and proceedings should not be made public.
  • They feel that the public’s right to understand what the Obama administration did to American citizens should be secondary to the threats to their lives that would exist if the truth was actually made public or they were forced to testify in public.
  • According to the article: ‘"This documentation, as the court will see, makes very personal references and contains graphic, profane and disturbing language that would lead to unnecessary intrusion and embarrassment if made public," their attorneys argued in a recent court brief. "Public dissemination of their deposition testimony would put their lives in serious jeopardy."
  • Currently, everything and every document associated with the case is under lock and seal per the judge’s order.
  • An attorney for the Tea Party claims that: "Generally, our position is that this is a matter of great public interest and there is no legal basis for sealing the depositions or the arguments about whether the depositions should be sealed."
  • The attorneys for Lerner and Paz put forth a real weak argument why the truth should be suppressed: "Although there is a compelling need for sealing, there is no countervailing need to make those details public. Allowing public dissemination ... would likely lead to media coverage that may then subject both individuals to the very harms they seek a protective order to avoid."

So sad that we are even discussing any aspect of this conversation on so many levels: the strong likelihood that First Amendment rights were squashed, that the truth has to be suppressed, and that government workers are afraid for their lives because of the truth. Insanity.

2) We have often written about how the Federal government’s desire to hand out farm subsidies usually ends up being subsidies for the rich. According to a recent Heritage Foundation article by Daren Bakst on May 22, 2017, nothing has changed since our last visit with this wasteful practice:

  • The Federal government and American taxpayer currently spend about $15 billion a year on different commodity and crop insurance programs.
  • Since the recipients of government handouts in these programs usually consists of millionaire farmers or large agriculture companies, less wealthy Americans are subsidizing more wealthy Americans and major corporations.
  • For example, according to 2015 data, midsize farm households have a median annual income that is three times higher than the median income of all U.S. households and the median wealth level of midsize farmers is 26 times higher than the median wealth level of all U.S. households.
  • Commercial farming operations and corporate agriculture companies represent only 10% of all farms in the U.S. but generally receive over 70% of all government subsidy payments.
  • But government handouts are also selective when paying out taxpayer money with 95% of the Agriculture Risk Coverage and Price Loss Coverage program payments in 2015 going to only five crops (corn, peanuts, rice, soybeans, and wheat), other crops be damned.

The rich get richer, the poor and middle class pay more and more in taxes and the political class lets it happen anyway.

3) Democrats in Congress are obsessed with somehow proving that the Russians have infiltrated the Trump administration, a task that they have failed miserably at achieving. But maybe they need to worry about how their own operations in Congress and their lives have been infiltrated by some shady Middle Eastern types:

  • According to an article by Luke Rosiak on May 22, 2017 for the Heritage Foundation, Congressional computer experts believe that a recent computer breech executed by an outside computer technology company, owned and operated by a Pakistani family, working for Congressional members may be using or could use the information that was gathered by the breech to blackmail members of Congress with their own data and information.
  • The company employees, all family members, provided IT employees and support to various Democrats in Congress but they have recently been banned from Congressional computer networks after suspicions arose that the family members accessed Congressional computers and files without permission.
  • The article claims that: “Congressional technology aides are baffled that data-theft allegations against four former House IT workers—who were banned from the congressional network—have largely been ignored, and they fear the integrity of sensitive high-level information.”
  • Furthermore, “Five Capitol Hill technology aides told The Daily Caller News Foundation’s Investigative Group that members of Congress have displayed an inexplicable and intense loyalty toward the suspects who police say victimized them. The baffled aides wonder if the suspects are blackmailing representatives based on the contents of their emails and files, to which they had full access.
  • Pat Sowers has managed IT roles for several House of Representative members over the past twelve years and she was even more explicit: “I don’t know what they have, but they have something on someone. It’s been months at this point with no arrests. Something is rotten in Denmark.”
  • A local computer technology company had offered their services to Democratic House members at one quarter the price that the brothers were charging but were rebuffed in their bid, further raising suspicions.
  • Another computer company also tried for Congressional business but ran into more suspicious behavior: “The Awans’ ban sent 20 members searching for new IT workers, but another contractor claims he’s had difficulty convincing offices to let him fill the void, even when he seemed like a shoo-in. He says he has the sense some members wrongly believed that he blew the whistle on the Awans’ theft and they were angry at him for it.”
  • The Heritage article references a similar Politico article that claimed that the family members are “accused of stealing equipment from members’ offices without their knowledge and committing serious, potentially illegal, violations on the House IT network.”
  • Follow up analysis after the brothers were banned found that Congressional data was sent to an offsite server in violation of policies and procedures.
  • Family members have been paid $4 million for their computer services since 2010.
  • The family members had access to all emails of dozens of members of Congress and access to any computer files those members and their staffs stored.

Great, Democrats in Congress are worried about Trump while they are possibly being robbed blind of information within their own realms of responsibility, information that is quite possibly being sent overseas or being used for blackmail purposes domestically. Insanity.


Nasty stuff today: Congress gets hacked, the rich get richer, and turning the IRS into a political weapon now makes Americans fear for their lives. More insanity to follow.

May, 2017, Part 10, Political Class Insanity: Child Sexting In Washington, Out of Touch at the DNC, and More

It is the beginning of another month which means it is again time to review the latest political class insanity from Washington and around the world. Political class insanity takes many forms including the wasting of taxpayer wealth, criminal fraud within government programs, inane and stupid political quotes and actions, the inability to create and implement effective and efficient government programs, stupid and ill performing economic policies and strategies, and other forms of insanity that continue to evolve and surprise and shock us.

Today and for all of the insanity posts this month, let’s start off with a welcome piece of honest political dialog. It comes from a State Department spokesperson. Mark Toner, who is about to start the daily State Department press briefing. In a joking matter, he makes the following quote: "Welcome to the State Department. I think we have some interns in the back. Welcome. Good to see you in this exercise in transparency and democracy."

He then burst out laughing at his own quote, indicating he also knew what a joke the Obama administration has been, especially Mr. Toner’s State Department, when it comes to cover ups, lack of transparency, denial of Freedom of Information Act requests, the prosecution of whistleblowers, etc. But at least it was a little refreshing to finally hear some actual honesty out of Washington as we see from the actual clip of the news conference:


With that context of honesty, let’s see what other insanity has been going down:

1)The election of Donald Trump, if anything, proved that much of America is fed up with the antics, incompetence, and idiocy of the current members of the American political class. A recent article on the Patriot News Weekly website confirmed that observation:

  • A recent ABC News/Washington Post found that a whopping two thirds of Americans believe that the Democratic Party is out of touch with mainstream Americans today.
  • And the reality that the Democrats need to widen their appeal does not seem to have sunk in yet with their leadership and such people as DNC chairman Tom Perez.
  • Although almost half of the country is current against the concept of abortion according to Gallup, that half of the country has now been cut off from the Democrats according to a recent Perez statement: “Every Democrat, like every American, should support a woman’s right to make her own choices about her body and her health. That is not negotiable and should not change city by city or state by state.” Bam, half the country possibly lost!

While I admire Perez sticking to his principles, he cannot have it both ways. Either accept the fact that almost half of the country, and a plurality of Americans, are against the concept of abortion, and consider their reasoning and feelings or move on and continue to be a minority party in this country. Sad that a politician cannot accept that maybe he or she is wrong and reexamine their views, very sad and insane.
2) What would a monthly review of political class insanity be without a murder body count from Chicago? As we have discussed many times, the local and state politicians in Illinois have stood idly by without a solution to the every escalating drug gang and drug cartel related violence in Chicago that claims hundreds of lives every year and results in thousands wounded by the gang and gun violence.
Recent body count numbers have not been any better:
  • In a recent 15 hour period, there were 17 murders in the city, a record for intensity in a city where the gun and gang violence has been intense for years.
  • This murder spree went down despite the fact that Chicago and Illinois have some of the toughest gun laws in the whole country.
  • As a sanctuary city, the local politicians have allowed foreign criminal elements and gangs to set up shop knowing that local politicians will not work with the Feds to enforce current immigration laws and have them deported or put in jail, a reality that endangers innocent Chicago citizens every day.
  • According to the Chicago Tribune, every death was the result of gang related activities.
  • In one innocent according to the Tribune, Sarah Brazzle and her friend were shot simply because they happened upon a carjacking in progress.
  • Local authorities confirm that many of central America’s most violent drug cartels have established themselves in Chicago including the Zetas, the MS-15 cartel and others.
The carnage goes on and the local political class has no concept of how to fix the terrible violence.
3) A recent NewsMax May 19, 2017 article highlighted one of the more despicable politicians to recently serve in Congress and how he recently got his just rewards:
  • Former New York Congressman Anthony Weiner recently pleading guilty to criminal charges that he had been sexting online with a 15 year old girl.
  • Yes, a former member of Congress admitting guilt in sending sexual material to a minor just a few years removed from voting on legislation that affects all of our lives and our families.
  • He agreed not to appeal any sentence that ran from 21 to 27 months and he will have to register as a sex offender once he gets out of prison.
  • He was found out about his lewd and disgusting behavior when a North Carolina girl reported him, telling authorities that she and Weiner had been exchanging lewd messages for several months and that at one point the former Congressman asked the 15 year old to strip on camera while he watched.
  • The investigation and FBI examining his laptop revealed that his laptop contained classified State Department emails that Hillary Clinton had sent to Weiner’s wife, Huma Abedin, Clinton’s top conifdeant.
  • This behavior comes on the heels of information from several years ago that led to his leaving Congress that for years he had beensexting with several women despite being married and a member of Congress.
As we have said many times, our political processes are so broken that a pervert like Anthony Weiner can serve in Congress for many, many years,come into possession of sensitive government documents, and vote on important legislation that affects us all despite totally questionable and disgusting judgement.
4) One more set of perversion and insanity for today. According to Melissa Quinn, writing for the Washington Examiner on May, 18, 2017:
  • A Secret Service officer, who was assigned to the White House, has been sentenced to 20 years in prison for sexting with minors.
  • The agent, Lee Robert Moore, will also have to register as a sex offender and will be on supervised watch for the rest of his life.
  • He pleaded guilty to enticing a minor to engage in sexual activity and trying to send lewd materials to a minor.
  • Apparently, he sexted with minors while on duty at the White House.
  • He was eventually caught via a sting conducted by the Delaware State Police.
At one time Congressional members and Secret Service agents were viewed with respect and awe. They it appears that at least one of them in each organization is a child sex offender, tarnishing the entire organization they both work for. No wonder that two thirds of Americans think the Democrats are out of touch with America, not when this type of behavior of Washington insiders becomes more and more common and politicians do nothing about it.

Such violent and disgusting insanity today, more to follow in the coming days.
