Impeachment, Medicare, al-Baghdadi – Your AMAC Weekly News

Impeachment, Medicare, al-Baghdadi – Your AMAC Weekly News


Hi I’m Ben Ferguson and welcome to Your
AMAC Weekly News. First up, members of Congress have finally come back from
vacation, they call it recess, to major changes in both the so called
impeachment inquiry and the Durham investigation. Now both could lead to
concessions as well as losses from the liberal side of the aisle, more on what
is changing in a moment. Up next, we all know that Medicare for All will never
work, now it’s becoming more clear that the only way to even attempt to
implement this liberal idea being presented by 2020 Democratic candidates
is through massive and extreme taxes that Americans have never even
experienced or thought of. What could mean more out of your pocket and how
much it could cost you, well I’ve got the data for you in just a moment. And
finally, the president leads our armed forces to a victory and the killing of
ISIS leader al-Baghdadi. He’s been killed, yet the Liberals and
mainstream media can’t even give President Trump a win on this issue, see
what they’re trying to use to once again criticize the president in just a moment.
Don’t forget to please share this video with your friends on social media. Your
AMAC Weekly News starts right now. Two massive stories come to the
forefront as Congress comes back from recess. The first is obviously the
continuation of the so-called impeachment inquiry. Now, the problem for
liberals in Congress up to this point has been the fact that they won’t even
give conservatives or the president a voice in any of this, quote, “investigation.”
They wouldn’t even take a vote on it. Now, voting on whether or not to have an
impeachment inquiry is really important. It allows the side of the president to
actually be able to present a case and to hear what’s being said by the left and
even ask questions of the witnesses that they have called. Now, that has not been
done for weeks, in fact they even told witnesses to not answer questions from
any Republicans. Well finally, liberals relented to deciding to now have a vote
on the inquiry on Thursday and Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi released a
letter announcing the vote and saying that this impeachment resolution, quote,
“affirms the ongoing existing investigation and establishes the
procedure for future investigative steps.” She also said that they are taking this
step to “eliminate any doubt as to whether the Trump administration may
withhold documents, prevent witness testimony, disregard authorized subpoenas,
or continue obstructing the House of Representatives.” Now what this basically
means is that they are going to ignore the fact that they have been doing this
all wrong from the very beginning and now they’re going to act like this is
going to make it all okay because they had a vote to bring it all out in the
light. Now this also makes a point to try and claim that Donald Trump and his
administration have refused to cooperate is somehow obstructing an investigation
they never got permission to go through with in the first place.
Now conservative congressional leaders like House Minority Leader Kevin
McCarthy say this is something to applaud because Pelosi is finally
admitting that all of this is a sham, take a look. I applaud the Speaker for
finally admitting it is a whole entire sham, but you can’t put the genie back in the
bottle. A due process starts at the beginning, it doesn’t affirm a myths sham
investigation all the way through. If you are in the legal term, would be the fruit
from the poisonous tree, it’d be a mistrial. None of this information
would go forward. But what’s most important to the American
public: we all have the phone call, we all have the transcript, we are all able
to see there was no quid pro quo. Now with an election on the horizon, liberals
in swing states and districts could get serious flack for voting in favor of
anything involving impeachment. The vote would force them to put their support in
writing for voters to actually see. There was also some really good news this week
as the Durham investigation into the initial Russia probe has turned into an
actual criminal investigation. This means there will finally be a real
investigation into the witch-hunt to try and overthrow the free and fair election
of Donald Trump. This escalation of Durham’s investigation prompted
immediate accusations from liberals that the Bill Barr-led DOJ has become
compromised at a time when Trump faces an impeachment inquiry over his
interactions with Ukraine. The president has publicly called for investigations
of former FBI Director James Comey, former CIA Director John Brennan, and
former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper among others. Now those
that have read the Durham report believe this should leave men like these I just
mentioned really shaking in their boots. Now what is really funny is that Comey
is pretending not to care about this at all, take a look at this from his most
recent interview that aired on C-SPAN. I’m not worried about a single thing in
connection with any of the matters under investigation. Gather the facts, write a
report, and share it with the American people. Please do that, because all this
stuff in the media with the Attorney General saying stuff doesn’t just — it
doesn’t jibe, is an attack on the integrity of the institution. You mean kind of like
the attacks on the institutions of the Office of the
President United States of America, Comey? It’s interesting how quickly liberals
will say transparency is important when it involves investigations into them
personally. Now as more information about the Durham/Barr report
surfaces and the continued impeachment attempts of President Trump
come to light, we here at AMAC are going to keep you up-to-date on this very
important story. We already know that Medicare for All
basically means health care for none. Now these radical ideas by liberals running
for president in 2020 have become even more and more extreme. They want to give
away all of this supposedly free stuff but what their supporters don’t think
about is that all of this comes at an extremely high price tag. Take Senator
Elizabeth Warren for example, she still has not come forward with a plan for how
she will magically pay for Medicare for All without having massive tax increases
on everyone including the middle class. Now watch her most recent dodge of
questions that was aired on MSNBC on this exact issue. But senator, shouldn’t you have
decided how you’re gonna pay for the plan before you released your
health care plan? I’ve been working on the
details for a long time. I’ve been a co-sponsor of Medicare for
All since it came out. But is it fiscally responsible to release a plan before
you’ve figured out how you’re going to pay for it? I think there have been many estimates about
what the cost will be, and many different payment streams and I’ve been working on
how to give the exact details to make that work. It’s important to note that
Warren has come out with an overly detailed plan for every other idea that
she has had but she is still not coming forward with this magical
Medicare for All plan and how we’re gonna pay for it. You want to know why?
Well new estimates have come out showing that Medicare for All would require at
least three trillion dollars in new spending. Now let me put that into
perspective for you and you’re going to want to share this with your friends.
Three trillion dollars is about as much tax revenue as the government currently
brings in in an entire year. If they wanted to actually implement just this
one plan, taxes would have to at least double on everyone. Now there are a
couple ways outlined by the Committee for Responsible Federal Budget
as to how this could actually be paid for. Warren tries to claim it will all
come from the top two percent that she’s going to have a massive tax on of these,
quote, “evil ultra millionaires.” Well in reality, Medicare for All would be so
expensive that if you tax the top earners at a hundred percent of
everything they made, all of their income, everything, anyone that earned more than
four hundred eight thousand hours per year in this country, you still wouldn’t
have enough money to pay for Medicare for All for one year. So here’s another
option, you could have a forty two percent national sales tax which would
generate about three trillion dollars in revenue while destroying the entire
economy. Or, you could have a thirty two percent tax split between employers and
their workers. Or a twenty five percent surtax on everybody.
Or the government could cut 80 percent of spending on everything but health
care, which includes highways, airports, and the Pentagon. Now we all know that
Warren won’t come forward with a plan because she doesn’t have a plan that
would really work for any of the Americans that she claims she’s
protecting. Now when you actually have the facts to look at this and put it
down on paper and see the math, you realize this is a disaster. Now math is
not a partisan issue and the math on Medicare for All is not going to help
anyone including those she claims it will help the most. The president led a
raid that ended in the death of the leader of ISIS, al-Baghdadi. That’s right,
the leader of ISIS is dead and everyone should celebrate that. This should be a
moment of joy for the president and for the American people and for the military
and for the liberals and the mainstream media, yet liberals in the mainstream
media are already trying to figure out ways that complain about killing the
leader of ISIS. You don’t believe me? Just take a look at Speaker the House Nancy
Pelosi and the liberal members of Congress who were enraged and upset that
the president didn’t speak with congressional leadership prior to going
forward with this raid to kill the number one terrorist in the world. Now
do you know what the president had to say about that? Well, in the most basic
terms President Donald Trump said that he didn’t tell them because American
lives were at stake and there is no way he could trust them to keep a big secret
like this. In fact, President Trump called Washington a leaking machine. Watch this
from his press conference following the successful mission that aired on Fox
News. [Interviewer] Have you notified the Congressional leaders about this? Pelosi? We’ve notified some, others are being
notified now as I speak. We were going to notify them last night but we decided
not to do that because Washington leaks like I’ve never seen before. There’s
nothing, there’s no country in the world that leaks what like we do and
Washington is a leaking machine. No matter who you are, if you’re being
intellectually honest, you know that Donald Trump is right. There is no way
that liberals in Washington could keep a secret this big, actually keeping it a
secret. And revealing this secret would have put American lives at risk. It also
would have destroyed the mission and allowed for the number one terrorist in
the world to possibly get away. There are also more reasons to believe the
president is right on this and to say, hey I’m not gonna tell you. I’ll give you
a great example. Back in 2017, General Tony Thomas explained at the Aspen
Security Conference that a prior lead on al-Baghdadi went dead following a media
leak. Now if only that were all that the media and liberals complained about with
regard to this, but there’s more. They also complain about the way Trump
announced it. That’s right take a look at this montage of how the media reported
on how Donald Trump announced this and how they didn’t like it, here it is. The raid that killed al-Baghdadi is both a military and political victory for the
Trump administration, but some officials point out that it may say as much about
the flaws in Trump’s foreign policy as it does about how well it can work. He
sounded not like a president of the United States, he actually sounded like Saddam
Hussein after torturing people, sounded like
Muammar Gaddafi after he would torture people. There’s a long trail ahead of him
actually finally releasing details, explicit details, some of which sort of
echoed and frankly the crudeness you would often expect to hear maybe
from ISIS about the whimpering screaming Baghdaddi. I think from a standpoint of
symbolism and importance of the country, the taking down the Osama bin Laden
had a lot more meaning than this. Can we at least agree that the world is
a better place without this guy in it? Who, Trump or the Baghdadi? Now even when the
president leads a successful mission that ends the life of the most dangerous
and evil man on the face of the earth, somehow liberals and the media find
reasons to complain. Now this is why it’s time for us to stand behind the
president and support him. He’s doing his job, he’s protecting our country, he’s
protecting our Constitution and all the liberals are trying to do is take that
away. That’s it for this edition of Your AMAC Weekly News. Now be sure to share
