US Cruise Missiles Strike Air Base in Syria

The United States fired dozens of cruise missiles at an airfield in Syria that military officials said was the source of the poison gas attack by the Assad regime that killed at least 80 civilians less than 48 hours earlier. “No child of God should ever suffer such horror,” @POTUS says. President Donald Trump said he ordered the airstrikes Thursday night in response to the chemical weapons attack Syrian dictator Bashar Assad carried out on his own people. “Using a deadly nerve agent, Assad choked out the lives of helpless men, women, and children,” Trump said of the victims of what was believed to be sarin gas, speaking briefly around 10 p.m. from his Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida. “No child of God should ever suffer such horror,” the president said. The Associated Press reported that … Read entire article »

Facing Democrat Filibuster on Gorsuch, McConnell Invokes Nuclear Option

Four years after Senate Democrats deployed the so-called nuclear option, Senate Republicans triggered it Thursday by a party-line vote of 52-48 to move President Donald Trump’s nominee closer to joining the Supreme Court. The successful bid by Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., to invoke the nuclear option means waiver of the 60-vote threshold to end debate on Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch. Just one vote with 51 senators voting in the affirmative will be required to confirm Gorsuch. Republicans hold a majority of 52 seats in the 100-seat Senate. A final confirmation vote for Gorsuch is expected Friday night.   McConnell triggered the nuclear option after the vote to end debate on Gorsuch’s nomination failed 55-45, ABC News reported. Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., unsuccessfully tried twice to stall McConnell’s efforts, the network noted. There … Read entire article »

Here Are 6 Reasons to Lower the Corporate Tax Rate Immediately

At close to 40 percent when including state rates, the U.S. corporate tax rate is one of the highest in the world. By comparison, the average corporate tax rate among nations in the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development stands at 25 percent. Politicians and pundits often talk about companies moving operations to more friendly corporate tax countries, and they are right to do so. The corporate tax climate in the U.S. is a major factor in companies’ decisions to move abroad. Some of those companies are uniquely American, yet nonetheless have relocated. Here are just six examples: 1. Burger King While Burger King does not directly cite taxation as its motive for moving, it is clear it will benefit. It is reported that between 2015 and 2018, Burger King could save $275 million in … Read entire article »

What Determines If Susan Rice Committed Crime in ‘Unmasking’ of Trump Officials

Political opponents have been quick to suggest that Susan Rice committed a crime in her waning days as national security adviser to President Barack Obama in the way she handled intelligence reports related to those close to the incoming president, Donald Trump. But to have broken federal law, national security experts told The Daily Signal, Rice would have had to purposefully leak such information to the media or knowingly place it in the hands of someone not entitled to possess it. These experts said Rice likely did not commit a crime by asking to see the names of persons close to Trump whose communications were captured after the election in surveillance of foreigners by U.S. spy agencies. That’s because, under federal law, government officials such as Rice have broad powers to request and … Read entire article »

Interior Employees Paid $6 Million While Facing Misconduct Investigations

Department of the Interior officials were paid $6 million while on extended administrative leave—often while under investigation for misconduct—without documented approval, a government watchdog reported Wednesday. The $6 million went to 242 department employees on administrative leave for at least 45 days between January 2013 and July 2016, the agency’s inspector general reported. “[The Department of Interior] did not sufficiently document decisions made regarding the use of extended administrative leave, resulting in inefficient management and oversight,” the … Read entire article »
