President Trump’s Growth Budget By Lawrence Kudlow

When Office of Management and Budget Director Mick Mulvaney unveiled President Trump’s new budget, he used language that is so important — although we haven’t heard it in so many years. … Read entire article »

What Do The Democrats Want? by Ted Rall

In the 1970s, when I was a kid, I asked my mother to explain the difference between the two major parties. “Democrats,” she explained, “are the party of the working man. Republicans represent big business.” … Read entire article »

Voters Say Islamic Leaders Should Do More to Promote Peace

Most voters continue to believe Islamic leaders should do more to promote peace in their faith, but they are split on whether the religion itself encourages violence more than other faiths. A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 75% of Likely U.S. Voters agree that Islamic religious leaders need to do more to emphasize the peaceful beliefs of their faith, a finding that shows little change from previous surveys. Eleven percent (11%) disagree, and another 14% are not sure. (To see survey question wording, click here.) (Want a free daily e-mail update? If it’s in the news, it’s in our polls).

Kathy Griffin: The bloodiest beclowning

Kathy Griffin: The bloodiest beclowning

So much for “When they go low, we go high.” Thirsty troll of the year Kathy Griffin got the attention she craved today after posing with a bloody Trump head. Now, she has issued a fauxpology. It is phony because she never actually apologizes to our president and because she is only apologizing in the face of a bipartisan backlash. I am sorry. I went too far. I was wrong. pic.twitter.com/LBKvqf9xFB — Kathy Griffin (@kathygriffin) May … Read entire article »

8th graders who snubbed Paul Ryan sound remarkably like DNC talking points

**Written by Doug Powers According to some media reports, last Friday about 100 8th graders refused to take a picture with Speaker Paul Ryan during their visit to DC. Some buses were still en route at the time and the reports are based on student accounts, so who knows what the actual number is. Odds that the kids who did snub Ryan did so unprompted by anybody else: Low: Elissa Malespina, a school librarian who is also the parent of a SOMS eighth grader, reported that her son was among the students who declined to pose with Ryan for a photo. “I am so proud of my son,” Malespina wrote on Facebook. The kids gave reasoned opinions for their choice — and said they were not fueled by partisanship. I have little doubt these students … Read entire article »

Oops: Rep. Keith Ellison’s opinion of Obamacare sure has evolved

Oops: Rep. Keith Ellison’s opinion of Obamacare sure has evolved

**Written by Doug Powers In 2012, Rep. Keith Ellison was beyond complimentary when it came to the Affordable Care Act: As far as I’m aware, Obamacare remains the law of the land. However, fast forward the tape to a couple days ago when the Minnesota congressman inadvertently kicked the former president’s signature “achievement” right in the mouth: Ellison deleted that after a while. Gee, I wonder why… Deleted now, but Keith Ellison evidently forgot who exactly designed our … Read entire article »

Major Exxon Investor Warns Shareholders Not to Give In to Global Warming Hysteria

An activist-led measure on global warming at Exxon Mobil Corp.’s upcoming annual meeting  could financially wipe out the company’s largest shareholders, one long-time Exxon shareholder said. BlackRock and Vanguard Group are toying with the idea of supporting an investor-created proposal that would force Exxon to measure how regulations limiting greenhouse gases could affect the value of the company’s oil assets, sources told The Wall Street Journal on Thursday. The measure is receiving intense scrutiny from shareholders who worry Exxon could get wobbly-kneed in the face of the environmentalist push. Some analysts believe the measure, if passed, could indicate the full weight and force powerful investors and money managers who are concerned about climate change have on energy companies. Exxon is opposed to the measure and will find out whether Vanguard and BlackRock support it at the company’s … Read entire article »

Trump’s Budget Puts Medicaid on a Path to Long-Needed Reform

Medicaid, the huge government health program for the poor and the indigent, is broken. Both the Trump administration’s recent budget submission and the House-passed American Health Care Act, designed to partially repeal and replace Obamacare, propose Medicaid fixes. Dubious assumptions burden the Trump budget proposal, and the House health care reform bill labors under some serious deficiencies. Both are correct, however, in resetting the general direction on Medicaid policy. Medicaid is beset by two serious problems. The first is a fiscal problem. Medicaid is an “open-ended” federal entitlement, and thus it contributes, like other major federal entitlements, to deficits and dangerous levels of national debt. As the Congressional Budget Office has described current Medicaid financing: All federal reimbursement for medical services is open-ended, meaning that if a state spends more because enrollment increases or costs per … Read entire article »

Trump’s Food Stamp Reform Would Close the Trap of Dependency

President Donald Trump’s newly released budget contains a proposed food stamp reform, which the left has denounced as a “horror” that arbitrarily cuts food stamp benefits by 25 percent. These claims are misleading. In reality, the president’s proposed policy is based on two principles: requiring able-bodied adult recipients to work or prepare for work in exchange for benefits, and restoring minimal fiscal responsibility to state governments for the welfare programs they operate. The president’s budget reasserts the basic concept that welfare should not be a one-way handout. Welfare should, instead, be based on reciprocal obligations between recipients and taxpayers. Government should definitely support those who need assistance, but should expect recipients to engage in constructive activity in exchange for that assistance. Work Requirements Under the Trump reform, recipients who cannot immediately find a job would be … Read entire article »

US Intelligence Leaks Are Threatening National Security. Here’s What the White House Can Do.

Classified information leaks to the media have often been framed as clash between the so-called “deep state” and President Donald Trump. However, Britain’s threat to stop intelligence sharing information with the United States demonstrates the larger problem. “The president has made it very clear going back months that leaks threaten national security,” @PressSec says. The BBC first reported Thursday that British police will stop sharing information with the United States on the Manchester terrorist attack after someone in the U.S. intelligence community leaked classified photos of the bomb site to The New York Times, which outraged U.K. officials. Later Thursday, Britain said after assurance, it would resume information sharing. This came as a major concern to the Trump administration. “The president has made it very clear going back months that leaks threaten national security and … Read entire article »

Horrifying Video From Abortion Conference Shows Utter Disregard for Human Life

Lawyers for Center for Medical Progress founder David Daleiden released a new video Thursday that exposes horrifying statements from leaders of the abortion industry during National Abortion Federation conventions in California in 2014 and 2015. The National Abortion Federation describes itself as “the professional association of abortion providers.” The group says it “exhibits and presents at numerous conferences … about topics related to abortion care.” The video notes that “Planned Parenthood makes up about 50 percent of [the National Abortion Federation’s] members and leadership.” The video opens with a Planned Parenthood medical director speaking on a panel about “heads that get stuck” and the “hemorrhages that we manage.” She is later seen telling a panel: “Given that we might actually both agree that there’s violence in here, ask me why I come to work every day. … Read entire article »

Trump’s Move to Deter Russian Aggression

Trump’s Move to Deter Russian Aggression

KYIV, Ukraine—On Tuesday, President Donald Trump presented a budget request to Congress that would boost spending for an Obama-era buildup of U.S. military forces in Europe meant to deter Russia from military provocations and show NATO and its European partners that the U.S. is committed to their defense. “Such a request is more reassuring for American allies and partners in Europe like Ukraine than mere declarations from senior Trump administration officials,” Mykola Bielieskov, an analyst with … Read entire article »

Climate Budget Cuts Are Smart Management, Not an Attack on Science

Climate Budget Cuts Are Smart Management, Not an Attack on Science

It’s been described as a “slap in the face,” “slaughter,” “a punitive … assault on science, the environment, and indeed the planet.” Aside from being inappropriate and irresponsible, these remarks are how some in the policy world and media have depicted cuts to global warming spending in President Donald Trump’s first budget proposal. People seem to have forgotten—or perhaps never noticed—just how much the government spends on direct climate programs. Trump’s budget proposal does in fact eliminate or … Read entire article »

Trump’s Foreign Trip Sends Strong Message That American Leadership Is Back

President Donald Trump’s visit to the Middle East and Europe is framing the parameters of his foreign policy style. That style is characterized by forcefully stating American priorities based on strong traditional alliances, religious inclusiveness, and national interest. In his speech to Arab leaders in Saudi Arabia, Trump called this approach “principled realism.” Unlike the Obama years, Trump’s first four months in office have shown no trace of apology for the history of the United States and the global role that it plays. This is an important—indeed refreshing—reversal. It has delivered a clear and unequivocal message about American foreign policy under Trump. How that message is received depends on the context. There was never any doubt that Trump would have a hard time getting a fair hearing for his policies in Europe, or anywhere else … Read entire article »

Key Takeaways From CBO Score of the Republican Health Care Bill

The Congressional Budget Office updated its score of the House-passed American Health Care Act this week, prior to its being sent over to the Senate. This budgetary analysis projects that if passed into law, the bill would reduce the number of insured by 23 million, but would decrease the deficit by $119 billion while also reducing federal outlays by $1.1 trillion and federal revenue by $992 billion. While the score is roughly similar to the score from the original version of the bill released on March 23, several modifications to the law occurred since then and were not reflected in earlier estimates. The new CBO score addresses the effect of allowing states to waive the Affordable Care Act essential health benefit and community rating requirements on premiums in particular. Effects on Coverage and Premiums First, the CBO finds … Read entire article »

Memorial Day 2017

Memorial Day 2017

Cox and Forkum *** Here’s Civil War Gen. John Logan’s Order Number 11 designating “Decoration Day,” the foundation of Memorial Day. Excerpt: We are organized, comrades, as our regulations tell us, for the purpose among other things, “of preserving and strengthening those kind and fraternal feelings which have bound together the soldiers, sailors, and marines who united to suppress the late rebellion.” What can aid more to assure this result than cherishing tenderly the memory of our heroic … Read entire article »

In 3 Charts, the Biggest Revelations From New Obamacare Study

Health care costs continue to rise under Obamacare. A report released Tuesday by the Department of Health and Human Services shows a significant hike in the average cost of individual plans since 2013 in 39 states. In 2013, the average annual cost of a premium for an individual health care plan was $2,784. By 2017, the average annual cost for a premium for an individual health care plan on HealthCare.gov was $5,712. Thirty-nine states use HealthCare.gov. Twenty-four states had Obamacare premiums in 2017 that were double the average individual premium in 2013. In three states, the Obamacare premiums are now triple the average individual premium in 2013. President Barack Obama promised premiums would go down under Obamacare. “You should know that once we [have Obamacare] fully implemented, you’re going to be able to buy insurance … Read entire article »

Why Washington Hates Trump’s Budget

The Trump administration is getting pushback on its 2018 federal budget, and it’s coming from elected officials on both sides of the aisle. Why does Washington find the budget plan so distasteful? As our video explains, maybe it’s because President Donald Trump’s budget focuses more on what’s good for taxpayers as opposed to what’s good for special interests and the federal bureaucracy.
