Gorsuch and Comey might have dominated TV but Ryancare is still the hottest topic in Washington. Plus, Democrats obsess – again -- on Russia during Comey testimony before the House, and, Democrats give truth to Mark Twain saying about idiots and Congress.
That is what we have to vet for. That is what the majority of the American people want: Muslims who embrace our way of life invited in, Muslims who threaten our way of life kept out. You can’t get there without subjecting Muslim aliens to more-extensive inspection. We will never get there by denying that Islam is the heart of the matter.
The NEA is not just about beleaguered painters whose work would never grace his non-egalitarian museum but also about, say, guitar players who are indistinguishable from, well, other guitar players. Bottom line — some artists deserve tax dollars forcibly expropriated from all taxpayers. Could it be that as wonderful as art and music are and how they truly nourish the soul, in a free society, dispensing tainted largesse is not the province of the central government?
Various pundits, some on the Right as well as the Left, warn against “normalizing” Donald Trump? And, perhaps most worrisome, what does it mean that a smattering of judges across the country argue that the president’s executive orders are illegitimate, unconstitutional because (cutting to the chase) they are this president’s orders?
Mark Skoda and the patriots of the America First Federation have it exactly right. We urge the House of Representatives to immediately prepare articles of impeachment against Judges Robart, Watson and Chuang and to hold hearings at the earliest possible hour.
With the Gorsuch hearings set to begin, liberals prime their First Amendment protected slime machine. Plus, Crooked Hillary comes out of the woods – what’s she up to now?, and, Is the very public fight over Ryancare actually good for the GOP?
In the end, it's not a question of were we surveilled, it's a question of who reveals the contents of that surveillance to whom, and when and why. what should concern all of us if we are interested in living a free, independent life is who leaked the various surveillances that did or did not take place. Those people MUST be punished.
You gave Trump the excuse he needed to be the most conservative president since Calvin Coolidge, and now he’s doing it. He couldn’t not do it – you left him no way to compromise, and you made sure that any act of magnanimity or graciousness would be rejected. Even if he wanted to moderate his policies, that would just create an opening we all absolutely know you would exploit. So there won’t be any détente with the liberal elite, no peace accords with the snooty left.
Trump is pulling the curtain back on the charades of the media, but often they pull the cord before he does. Instead of taking a pause in their partisanship, they plunge more deeply into it. Editors rebuke other editors for not calling Trump a “liar” on their front pages. Schools of journalism fete the most virulently anti-Trump pundits. In a way, it is all wonderfully clarifying. The mask of phony neutrality is off and their partisan faces are visible for all to see.
For much of the Washington news media, cutting federal funding for something is the same as opposing that thing. Trump's budget, however, makes a distinction that these critics miss. Federal funding should be for things that are best done by the federal government. Many things are better done at a level of government closer to the individual, or even outside government altogether.
The selective outrage is deafening. Obama was certainly the target of vicious remarks, but the calls for outright violence from the left have received nowhere near the same attention in the press as conservatives received during the Obama years.
The pressure from Capitol Hill’s big spending establishment Republicans won’t be to cut the budget, it will be to fund the increased spending on defense and homeland security AND all the domestic boondoggles that President Trump wants to eliminate to pay for his shift in priorities.
Not even Trump’s legendary hospitality can make Paul Ryan’s awful plan smell right. Plus, Why Paul Ryan needs Trump but Trump doesn’t necessarily need Ryan, and, John McCain vs. Rand Paul reveals yet another conservatives vs. establishment divide.
Mike Flynn was clear-eyed about the threat Islam poses to constitutional liberty and America’s Judeo-Christian culture. Whoever conned President Trump into saying that he thought Islam has been “kidnapped by radical groups” did so by failing to tell him that he was meeting with a representative of one of the chief kidnappers – the Wahhabis of the Saudi royal family.
#RYNOCare is destined for failure and we conservatives need to call and tweet House Freedom Caucus members today to tell them to stand firm against this bill, and that we’ve got their backs when the establishment comes after them!
Republicans should get back to the jobs and economic agenda they were elected for. Plus, Are the Republicans really panicking over the midterm elections already?, and, Trump chooses jobs and competition for the auto industry over fantasy Obama fuel standards.
Trump paid $38 million in taxes on $150 million of reported income that year, for an effective average tax rate of 25.3 percent. But that year, those among the top 0.1 percent of taxpayers had an average tax rate of 22.48 percent, according to data from the Tax Foundation.
Ryancare is a twofer for Ryan: He and his big government DC pals continue to control people’s lives by controlling the health care and health insurance markets and they screw Trump in the process.
Economists had forecast 200,000 nonfarm payrolls in February, according to a Bloomberg survey. They raised their forecasts Thursday after a report by the payrolls-processing giant ADP showed the private sector added 298,000 jobs in February, many more than expected.
Wikileaks’ Julian Assange says Hillary Clinton and the intelligence community want Trump out. Plus, Trump the negotiator searches for the best “deal” for all sides on healthcare, and, Upcoming Trump budget sets parameters for deconstructing the administrative state.
