Yesterday, I appeared on RT America’s “The Alyona Show” to talk about Sen. Ran Paul’s (R-KY) efforts to amend a flood insurance bill to include language definining fetuses as people, thus making abortion illegal.
After, we spoke in brief about today’s expected decision about the Affordable Care Act, which came down in favor of retaining the individual mandate, albeit not because of the Commerce Clause. My prediction was that, no matter what happened, both sides would find a way to spin it to the benefit of their political party. And, surprise! In a vociferous defense on his Twitter feed and in an article at The Weekly Standard, conservative writer Jay Cost already proved me right.
The best way to make predictions is to assume the people’s whose job it is to spin stuff will spin it.
And then there’s the part about why everyone hates Congress!

‘We have been under siege’: Trump falsely claims he has been ‘violently’ attacked by his critics
President Donald Trump claimed to be the victim of "violence" during his official campaign kickoff in Orlando, Florida.
"Many times I said we would drain the swamp and that’s exactly what we are doing right now. We are draining the swamp," Trump claimed, despite having the most scandal-plagued administration in American history.
"And that is why the swamp is fighting back so viciously and violently," Trump argued.
"For the last two and a half years we have been under siege and with the Mueller report we want and now they want a do-over. They want a do-over," he repeated.
‘He wants the spotlight back’: CNN commentator says Trump is jealous of all the attention Democrats are getting
On Tuesday, President Donald Trump held a rally in Orlando, Florida to formally kick off his re-election campaign for 2020.
And as CNN's Gloria Borger explained to John Berman, Trump desperately needed this event — because he was jealous of how much coverage the Democratic presidential candidates are getting.
"One source told CNN campaign officials are hoping this event will satisfy the president's thirst for the spotlight and reset the campaign's efforts," said Berman. "This is the 60th campaign rally for the president. So is there any reason to think that this event could move the needle?"
Sarah Huckabee Sanders lied ‘proudly and with impunity’ because she was raised to be ‘impervious to reason’: WH reporter
Outgoing White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders was blasted by a White House correspondent for her brazen lying from the White House podium.
"Sarah Sanders is a true believer. Conditioned by an upbringing rooted in Christian rhetoric that's impervious to reason, she views the world through a lens in which everything exists in absolutes," Playboy magazine White House correspondent Brian Karem wrote.
Her father, Mike Huckabee, is an Evangelical pastor who served as the Republican governor of Arkansas prior to unsuccessful presidential bids.
