Good news from Washington 

WHAT SOME CALL THE CHAOS IN WASHINGTON SOMETHING GOOD HAS EMERGED. CONGRESS HAS APPROVED A BILL TO STRIP FEDERAL FUNDS FROM PLANNED PARENTHOOD, AN ORGANIZATION THAT IS THE NATION’S LARGEST ABORTION PROVIDER. THE MEASURE CLEARED THE SENATE THANKS TO A TIE-BREAKING VOTE FROM PRO-LIFE VICE PRESIDENT MIKE PENCE AND NOW GOES TO THE WHITE HOUSE WHERE PRESIDENT TRUMP IS EXPECTED TO SIGN IT.
         THE BILL ROLLS BACK AN OBAMA-ERA RULE THAT PREVENTED STATES FROM DENYING FAMILY PLANNING MONEY TO ORGANIZATIONS JUST BECAUSE THEY PERFORMED ABORTIONS.

The freedom caucus was wrong, they should have voted for the healthcare bill to move the process on……

Some in the GOP including some on the right failed the American voter, and failed President Trump ( Thank you!!!!! )

How disappointing the bill to kill Obamacare looks to be dead.      Thanks GOP. One of the reasons you were put in office was to rid the nation of this horrible law.

  You have failed the American voters, along with failing President Trump. 

     You wanted a perfect bill, and now we have none. Thanks Congressman Beacon here from Nebraska for supporting this bill. 

     I am outrage at the GOP including those on the right.

My respect for this judge has grown, on the other hand my respect for some Senators from the left has gone down

Here are some thoughts I posted on a friend’s Facebook page about the hearings taking place for President Trump’s nominee for the Supreme Court.     I think he did a great job of answering the questions from the Senators who were trying to trap him in my view. . I was also proud of the Nebraska US senator Ben Sasse when his turn came up to ask the judge a question. The left is doing everything to keep this good man off of the court. It does drive one nuts. He s a judge he should not comment on current court cases, or possible court cases. He is doing well with his answers. I am not sure I could have self control. 

       I also saw one Senator cut him off and didn’t let him complete his answer. The reason they didn’t have time. Well if the senator had not taken so much of his time in asking a question about a court case, they would have had time for the judge’s full answer.

    Pray for this judge. After watching a little of the hearing today my respect for this judge has grown. My respect for some senators outside of the one from Nebraska has gone down. Perhaps we should have hearings on weather these senators can serve in government. 

Purity, apparently, is what some conservative Republicans are demanding in a health insurance bill, writes Cal Thomas 

Readers of a certain age may recall ads for Ivory Soap, which claimed to be 99 and 44/100ths percent pure. If the soap could have reached 100 percent purity, the company would likely have made the claim.
Purity, apparently, is what some conservative Republicans are demanding in a health insurance bill, which likely will be voted on this week, unless it is held back because Speaker Paul Ryan doesn’t think it has enough votes to pass. Supporters of the evolving House bill emphasize that this is a three-step process designed to get what virtually all conservatives want, a more cost-effective health plan, only they can’t muster enough votes, especially in the Senate. Some conservatives are taking an all-or-nothing approach, which is likely to guarantee they will get nothing.
Cynics (imagine that in Washington), apparently, want Obamacare to collapse so that they can blame Democrats. That might be a political winner for Republicans, but it risks leaving millions of people, especially the poor, in a gap between Medicaid and other health benefits and whatever comes next.
During an interview in his office, Vice President Mike Pence told me, “The president is determined to keep his promise to repeal and replace Obamacare.” Due to what he called “the arcane rules of the Senate on budgeting bills, it likely will take two pieces of legislation to do that, and a significant amount of administrative action by (HHS) Secretary Tom Price. We really believe a combination of those efforts by this spring will repeal Obamacare once and for all and replace it with health care reform that gives people the freedom to choose whether to have health insurance that lowers (its) cost for every American and creates a national marketplace where people have the ability to buy health insurance the way they buy car and life insurance, and gives the states the ability to improve Medicaid with state-based innovation and reform.”

( Read the rest of this spot on column by Cal Thomas  PURITY AND POLITICS. Cal is right. Some on the right want everything,or nothing. That kind of attitude will get us nothing, and hurt the cause. The goal to get rid of Obamacare. Yes changes can be made to the current bill , but let’s not have an all, or nothing attitude. Trump, and Ryan at least this time are doing what they should do. )

Casting Popcorn on President Trump, and others ( Our Hyper-Judgmental Culture )

Eric Metaxas :

When it comes to not judging others, we moderns are so far advanced over our forebears. Umm. Not quite.
 
While much of the country has experienced an abnormally mild winter, I have it on good authority that Hell has frozen over. Really.
I know this because we at the Colson Center recently found ourselves in complete agreement with Frank Bruni, a liberal—to put it mildly—columnist for the New York Times.
What occasioned this rare celestial alignment was Bruni’s column deriding a Washington Post article on, of all things, what President Trump had for dinner at a Washington restaurant. The Post’s food critic sneeringly described Trump’s steak order as “well done and with ketchup, as if the entrée would be accompanied with a sippy cup.”
A President may rightly be criticized for his policies. But for his dinner? C’mon folks. Besides, as Bruni retorted to those who would join the sneering, “Let he who is without a bag of microwave popcorn in his cupboard cast the first stone.”
These days, it’s not just the eating habits of politicians that are under attack, but also the eating habits of other, ordinary people.
For example, as Bruni memorably put it, “a mother giving her 5-year-old a sugary Sprite might as well be handing him a loaded gun. The looks she gets from the parents around her are that aghast and alarmed.”
As I said, we at the Colson Center completely agree with Bruni in this case. In fact, we would add that Bruni is even more correct than he lets on. Our “brutality” when it comes to other people’s food and drink habits is just one aspect of the extremely judgmental age in which we live.
That’s right: I said judgmental. For all our talk about being “nonjudgmental” and “tolerant,” modern Americans are nothing of the sort. We are simply judgmental and intolerant about different things.
To cite an example related to Bruni’s column, take the issue of weight. We can’t criticize, in even the most abstract terms, anyone’s sexual conduct. But we’re free to engage in what is known as “fat shaming,” even when there is no “fat” to “shame.” Thus, after her halftime Super Bowl performance, social media was abuzz with people commenting about Lady Gaga’s weight.
It’s not a coincidence that the “brutality” directed towards other people’s food choices and waistlines has a strong class component to it. As Wallis Simpson, the Duchess of Windsor, famously put it, “you can never be too rich or too thin.”
As Bruni writes, “The more economically privileged the circles, the more people assert their identities through the supposed erudition, acuity and morality of their food choices . . . What a person genuinely, viscerally enjoys, regardless of its cultural bona fides, carries little weight. Food is the new fashion: our outward advertisement of who we are.”
Stated differently, what we eat has become a signal of our virtue. It’s not too much of an exaggeration to say that eating organic is the new justice and eating locally-sourced is the new temperance, at least in some exclusive zip codes.
By implications, that means that those who do not consume in this way are vicious, in the original Latin sense of the word, “corrupt,” and “depraved.”
Of course, these ideas of vice and virtue are literally superficial. As Jesus—remember Him?—said, “it is not what goes into the mouth that defiles a person, but what comes out of the mouth; this defiles him.”
And in so many other instances, our post-Christian era has stood the truth about goodness and beauty, virtue and vice on its head. All that’s left is to argue about the condiments.
