4:05PM ET - Congressman Dave Brat of Virginia, author of AMERICAN UNDERDOG: PROOF THAT PRINCIPLES MATTER, is on the House Budget committee and Daniel Horowitz, Senior Editor of Conservative Review, join to debate and discuss the GOP healthcare proposal and why it does not work and will not pass the house or senate. From Daniel Horowitz’s article today to assess the “new” bill:
One of the most memorable moments of Obama’s presidency was when Rep. Joe Wilson, R-S.C. (D, 65%) could no longer contain his anger as the president touted his signature health care legislation before a joint session of Congress. When Obama promised that illegal aliens would not be able to access the subsidies, Wilson shouted, “You lie!”
Sadly, eight years later, Paul Ryan, R-Wis. (F, 51%) and Mitch McConnell, R-Ky. (F, 40%) are well on their way to tweaking Obamacare and owning it for themselves under the stratagem of calling it “repeal and replace.” Now it appears that we might need Joe Wilson to direct his truth bomb at his own party. If nothing is done, Obamacare 2.0 will contain the same verification provisions as the original version that have enabled illegal aliens engaging in identity fraud to access the subsidies.
5:05PM ET - Raheem Kassam editor of Breitbart London and Qasim Rashid, National Spokesperson for the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community USA today they discuss the revision of the executive order on immigration issued by the President yesterday. What’s difference from the first order?
The original executive order — which was controversially struck down by a federal court — included Iraq as one of the countries included in the 90-day moratorium and security review. The White House says the new order will no longer include Iraq “based on commitments from” its government.”
“Iraq has taken steps to increase their cooperation with the United States in the vetting of Iraqi nationals and as such it was determined that a temporary suspension is not warranted,” the White House said in the press release.
Additionally, the first immigration order went into effect immediately, while the one signed Monday will take effect on March 16, 2017.
The new order will temporarily put a 120-day halt on all refugee admissions into the United States. The previous executive order banned Syrian nationals indefinitely.
Trump’s new executive order also releases guidelines on implementing better screening and vetting standards for the U.S. immigration program as a whole. The Department of Homeland Security, Department of State, and the office of the Director of National Intelligence will be in charge of a worldwide review to enhance America’s national security procedures.
Additionally, a presidential memorandum issued with the executive order will implement “immediate heightened screening” procedures. (h/t Conservative Review)
5:35PM ET - Kellyanne Conway, here to address the three major news stories the nation is watching: healthcare, immigration, and FISA. The Washington Times carried an article detailing the reasons why wiretapping is not such a far fetched idea, one of the points made follows:
Mr. Obama expanded NSA’s powers in the days before leaving office.
Mr. Obama, in his final days, allowed the NSA to share globally intercepted personal communications with the government’s other 16 intelligence agencies before applying privacy protections, The New York Times reported.
“The new rules significantly relax longstanding limits on what the N.S.A. may do with the information gathered by its most powerful surveillance operations, which are largely unregulated by American wiretapping laws,” The Times reported. “These include collecting satellite transmissions, phone calls and emails that cross network switches abroad, and messages between people abroad that cross domestic network switches.”
Last week, The Times reported the Obama administration rushed to spread all evidence it collected about Russia’s meddling in the U.S. election and about possible contacts of people within Mr. Trump’s campaign and Russian officials, to ” to leave a clear trail of intelligence for government investigators.””
