Can Graham-Cassidy Obamacare Repeal-Replace Pass The Senate?



It is hardly repealing Obamacare, although at this point it about as good as things are ever going to get. It does shift the Medicare portions of Obamacare to the States (via block grants) which is ok. They probably have 48 or 49 votes. With Collins and Paul as likely noes, that leaves it all on McCain and Murkowski.  I assume Graham can woo Cranky John (he has his ways), but Murkowski?  



Hurricane Maria poised to slam Puerto Rico, while Hurricane Jose is still mulling around off the mid-Atlantic




Let's hope and pray it does not destroy too much on its way off to sea. And no more landfalls after this. 

Hurricane Jose, we are fortunate it mostly avoided landfall, but even as a tropic storm, no off shore fishing for a while...



I like Rita Moreno singing about the hurricanes blowing...





So Obama really did 'wiretap' Trump Tower?


Instapundit: How About That:

Paul Manafort lives in Trump Tower. So when Trump said Obama wiretapped him at Trump Tower, Obama and his FBI really may have wiretapped Trump Tower and communications with Trump. And Comey flat out lied about it (or rather weaselly said no wiretap was done of Trump offices). At least if you believe what CNN is claiming.

AoSHQ/J.J. Sefton: Mueller's shit show

Legal Insurrection: As the Mueller leaks turn...

Breitbart: Comey tries to discredit Trump on wiretaps

Daily Caller: Trump may have been part of Manfort wiretaps

Twitchy: CNN: Wiretapping Manafort Before and After Campaign

CNN: US government wiretapped former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort?

Don Surbur:  This Is CNN: This may be Fake News (then again doesn't is prove Trump right)

Powerline: Trump not vindicated (yet), So was Trump right about being wiretapped and Trump goes nuclear with claims Obama wiretapped Trump Tower


EBL: Spying Lying Democrats, Did Obama set up Trump to justify a FISA warrant?, Crooked Comey Collusion, What Is Fusion GPS, Comey dug himself a few holes

Rush Limbaugh: Trump was right about Obama-Comey Wiretaps and Drive Bys upset over Wiretapping allegations coming back

Lem's Place: US Government wiretapped former Trump campaign manager

Madame Nhu



I watched Episode 2 of Ken Burn's (and Lynn Novik's) Vietnam tonight. Better than I thought (it was focused mostly on the Kennedy years). I am sure I will be disappointed by the end, but he did feature a bit of Madame Nhu.
