Trump Restricts Immigration Program That Took This American’s Job

After years in private business, Kurt Ho had finally found a rewarding information technology job, working for a public hospital in Northern California, ensuring vital systems—such as fetal health monitors—were functioning properly. In October, Ho learned his job at the University of California, San Francisco Medical Center was being outsourced to a company in India, called HCL Technologies. Ho was told he could stay on the job, get paid for four more months, and earn a bonus if he trained his replacement. Ho’s dream job lasted less than three years. “I was very surprised because this is a hospital—we are not talking about something you can easily outsource,” Ho, 58, told The Daily Signal in an interview, just a few weeks after his last day of work, Feb. 28. “This is very important … Read entire article »

Supreme Court Rejects Challenge Over Merrick Garland Nomination, Shows Why ‘Emoluments’ Suit Against Trump Will Fail

On Monday morning, the U.S. Supreme Court declined to review the case of Michel v. McConnell, where the courts below rejected a citizen’s effort to sue senators for inaction on D.C. Circuit Chief Judge Merrick Garland’s nomination to the Supreme Court. The lower courts’ opinions explain why another controversial dispute, Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) v. Donald J. Trump, will also fail—with only days left until the government’s response is due in that case. Disappointed with the process of the Senate’s refusal to hold a vote on Garland’s nomination to the Supreme Court, Steven S. Michel sued Sens. Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., and Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, for allegedly violating his constitutional right “to elect his senators by depriving his home-state senators of a voice” in the nomination process. A Political Issue … Read entire article »

How to Improve Airline Travel: Cut Out Washington Meddling

While grumbling about inconveniences at U.S. airports is a national pastime among travelers, the criticism has been especially shrill this year. President Donald Trump has made it clear that he is not pleased with the state of U.S. airports, calling them “obsolete” and even “third world.” Although these claims are hyperbolic (American airports move far more people than those of any other country in the world, and do so safely), the president is channeling the general dissatisfaction. Indeed, not a single U.S. airport is ranked within the world’s top 25, and congestion and delays are a significant problem for the nation’s most vital hubs. The latest viral incident involving a United Airlines customer being dragged off of a flight further stressed the need to increase consumer choice. The typical response for many lawmakers is … Read entire article »

This May Be Venezuela’s Tiananmen Square Moment

This May Be Venezuela’s Tiananmen Square Moment

Venezuela is no stranger to protests, but the recent uprisings have rocked the country and stirred questions about the nation’s future. This past week, the “mother of all protests” has seen upward of 2 million Venezuelans take to the streets demanding an end to the notoriously corrupt Maduro regime. Beginning on what would be the 207th anniversary of the country’s independence from Spain, frustrated Venezuelans have taken to the streets demanding change. So far, three Venezuelans have been … Read entire article »

Congress Should Exert Influence by Authorizing Military Force Against ISIS

Syrian President Bashar Assad’s recent use of chemical weapons against his own people is a grim reminder of the deep challenges that continue to exist in Syria and the surrounding region. Compounding the problem is the brutal and ongoing presence of the Islamic State, also known as ISIS, which has taken a toll in recent months but remains far from defeated. It’s no wonder that many experts consider this the most complicated geopolitical challenge in recent history. The involvement of Russia, Iran, Turkey, and other groups in Syria combined with an unprecedented refugee crisis have led to a fractured situation that may take decades to fully resolve. While the situation on the ground is complicated, it is refreshing to have a president who is ready and willing to take decisive action when necessary. The most … Read entire article »

Even With Republicans in Charge, Upcoming Budget Battle Looks Grim

And so it begins. The GOP surrender in the budget battle. Despite all the campaign promises to “rein in government” and “get the country’s fiscal house in order,” the groundwork is already being laid by Republican lawmakers to explain why they just aren’t going to be able to put the brakes on spending after all. Unless Congress passes a budget by the last week of April, just four days after they return from a two-week recess, funds for the federal government will officially run out. Such looming deadlines are almost always bad news for taxpayers as members of both political parties usually decide the only path forward is to spend more money. That is one of the main reasons America is currently $19.9 trillion in debt and counting. Considering Republicans now control both houses … Read entire article »

Senators Like School Choice for Their Own Kids. Why Not for Everyone?

In recent years, states have significantly increased the availability of private school choice options. Since 2011, nearly a dozen states have enacted new tax credit scholarship programs, which provide tax credits to corporations and individuals who contribute to nonprofit organizations that provide scholarships to eligible children to attend a private school of choice. And since 2011, states have also adopted education savings accounts, following Arizona’s successful implementation of the policy in 2011. Florida, Tennessee, Mississippi, and Nevada have already followed Arizona’s lead, while several other state legislatures are currently considering ESAs in their own states. >>> Arizona Scored a Big Win With School Choice. Here’s How It Will Help Children. The continued momentum of school choice efforts at the state level, paired with a presidential administration that has made school choice a priority, has … Read entire article »

Trump to Announce ‘Tremendous Things’ for Veterans Health Care

Some veterans organizations don’t think a bill President Donald Trump signed Wednesday expanding private care options for veterans goes far enough. “The veterans have poured out their sweat and blood and tears for this country for so long,” @POTUS says. Trump seemed to agree, which is why he said more announcements are coming next week regarding veteran care. “There is still much work to do. We will fight each and every day to deliver the long-awaited reforms our veterans deserve and to protect those who have so courageously protected each and every one of us,” Trump said in the Roosevelt Room Wednesday after signing the Veterans Choice Program Extension and Improvement Act. The bill allows veterans to get private health care treatment outside the Department of Veterans Affairs system, but it will still be … Read entire article »

Josh Earnest: Obama will speak out if Trump crosses any ‘red lines’ (cue stock footage of Earth exploding)

**Written by Doug Powers It’s been confirmed: Team Obama’s post-White House search for self-awareness has come up emptier than a Rachel Maddow scoop about Trump’s tax returns: “What do you think,” Jansing asked Earnest, “would motivate him to get back involved in the public debate in a way that he’s not willing to do right now?” Earnest made clear that Obama would not be interested in responding to every little thing. “After the last eight years, the president doesn’t relish the prospect of getting back into the day-to-day fights that characterize governing the United States of America in the 21st century,” Earnest said. “He spent the last eight years doing it, it’s somebody else’s turn to do that now.” “What would motivate President Obama to reengage in the political debate,” Earnest continued, “is if … Read entire article »
