RIGHT SIDE PATRIOTS...for those who missed last night's broadcast (or just want to listen in again) where Craig and Diane discussed immigration trouble in the name of diversity; the assumed political downfall of Judge Roy Moore; and important news of the can listen to it at your convenience on SoundCloud at:

Shocker: New Study Shows How Medicaid Has Become A Honey Trap For Government DependencyWe all know our entitlement system is unsustainable. With Medicaid, that’s especially true since enrollment has exploded under the Obama era. President Obama made this program, designed for the working poor, and integral part of his health care overhaul. Most of the new enrollees are able-bodied adults, who don’t work, siphoning money from those who actually need the assistance. This is not to say that Medicaid is a great program; it’s not. Yet, it provides something for needy, despite those who are uninsured having a better chance of surviving a surgical procedure. Of course, those with private insurance fared the best. Still, while you can make the case that Medicaid should be totally torn down, the political powers that be will not allow it. There are ways to fix it, but that will never happen if we don’t require these enrollees to work. As the Foundation for Government Accountability found out, the lack of work requirements has enabled Medicaid expansion to serve as a honey trap to keep people dependent on government:
Medicaid spending and enrollment has skyrocketed in recent years, crowding out resources for all other state priorities.The number of people dependent on Medicaid has more than doubled since 2000, with nearly 75 million individuals currently enrolled in the program. Nowhere is this growth more evident than among able-bodied adults. Nearly 28 million able-bodied adults are now dependent on the program, up from fewer than 7 million in 2000.

PJ Media called me “A leader in this war for over a decade, documenting not just what is happening but explaining why.” Thank you.

ACT Space Coast Talk: “Pamela Geller Defies Fatwa in Florida”
“Pamela Geller Defies Fatwa in Florida”

by Gerald Lostutter

“I have been the target of death threats, [and] multiple assassination plots,” said Pamela Geller, explaining her book’s title, Fatwa. “It is a death sentence … A legal ruling … under Islam.”

Geller spoke via Skype during a meeting of Act Space Coast, a chapter of Act for America, held in Viera, Florida, on Nov. 14, 2017.

Printed below are some of Geller’s quotes, reorganized as a summary; as well as her answers to a few questions from the audience:

PG: The biggest fight is for the freedom of speech. Freedom of speech is the foundation of a free society. Without it, a tyrant can wreak havoc unopposed as his opponents are silenced. Putting up with being offended is essential in a pluralistic society. And when people differ on bases of truth. If a group will not bend without resorting to violence, that group will rule unopposed.

PG: Islamophobia is a term that amounts to nothing more than the enforcement of the Sharia in the marketplace of ideas. Any criticism of jihad terror that examines its ideological roots in Islam is called Islamophobia. The word is used to intimidate people into thinking there is something wrong with opposing jihad terror.
