Trump: ‘Walls Work, Just Ask Israel’

Trump: ‘Walls Work, Just Ask Israel’

President Donald Trump reiterated his support for a strong border wall in a joint press conference with Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos Thursday. Trump followed up on a question from ABC News’ Jonathan Karl to Santos on the efficacy of Trump’s proposed border wall in curtailing drug cartels. After Santos’ long answer espousing the benefits of cooperation, Trump simply declared: “Walls work. Just ask Israel.” President Trump to @jonkarl on proposed U.S.-Mexico border wall: “Walls work. Just … Read entire article »

EPA Official Invites Left-Wing Environmental Group to Agency for Talk on Science

An official inside the Environmental Protection Agency invited an activist group currently locked in a lawsuit with the Trump administration to the agency’s office for a discussion about scientific integrity, according to documents obtained by the Washington Examiner. Francesca Grifo, the EPA’s scientific integrity official, sent an invitation earlier this month to the Natural Resources Defense Council for a meeting to discuss the direction President Donald Trump plans on taking the agency. The council has filed several lawsuits against … Read entire article »

Trump Must Banish the Era of Leading From Behind

Four months after taking office, President Donald Trump is taking his first foray onto the world stage. Over the course of the next seven days he will travel to Europe and the Middle East, visiting four countries as well as the Vatican: Saudi Arabia, Israel, Belgium, and Italy. Across the Atlantic, he will take part in a mini-summit in Brussels, as well as the G7 summit in Taormina, Italy. The president’s overseas tour is an important opportunity to project U.S. leadership, stand shoulder to shoulder with key U.S. allies, and strengthen partnerships that have formed the bedrock of U.S. strategic interests for decades. In Europe, there will be intense scrutiny of Trump’s participation in the NATO mini-summit, at a time of mounting Russian aggression. His message in Brussels must be loud and … Read entire article »

Professor Receives Over $200,000 to Study Microaggressions

Professor Receives Over $200,000 to Study Microaggressions

The National Science Foundation awarded a professor over $200,000 to research microaggressions. Specifically, her research seeks to identify how microagressions keep racial minorities from comprising a larger chunk of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics jobs, and it seeks ways to improve minority representation in these fields. Mary Atwater, a science and mathematics education professor at the University of Georgia, received $229,061 to study microaggressions and their implications, according to a statement the university released Monday. “This grant can have an impact on … Read entire article »

Trump Expected to Propose Plan to Balance Budget in 10 Years

President Donald Trump likely will propose a plan next week calling for a balanced budget in 10 years, fiscal experts predict. It also will address how to fund the border wall, higher defense spending, and other Trump initiatives over the next decade. “Many Republicans have been calling for a 10-year balanced budget,” Chris Edwards, director of tax policy studies at the Cato Institute, told The Daily Signal. “One way they may show savings for that 10-year period is through management and downsizing reform efforts.” Mick Mulvaney, director of the Office of Management and Budget, took an initial step last month in rolling out government reforms that the administration intends to expand on later this year. A budget proposal that allows a president to demonstrate how committed he is to campaign pledges and gives … Read entire article »

Roger Ailes Remembered for Giving Conservatives a Voice, and a Fair Hearing, at Fox News

Roger Ailes built Fox News Channel by tapping into a growing sense among ordinary Americans that the dominant news media didn’t understand or care about them, journalists said Thursday at word that the cable TV giant had died. While some of Ailes’ critics focused on great personal failings that led to his downfall, those who witnessed his achievements over the years from near or far, or who benefited from his faith in them, were more generous. “Everything you see in cable news today is Roger Ailes’ making, regardless of network,” Joe Concha, media critic for The Hill, said in an email to The Daily Signal. “And many of the people you watch, from Chris Matthews to Megyn Kelly to Sean Hannity, have Ailes to thank for being where they are today.” In a statement … Read entire article »

Dodd-Frank Has Crippled Our Economic Recovery. This Bill Will Unleash Real Growth Again.

Have you noticed that free checking accounts are now nearly nonexistent, and locally owned stores are increasing the $5 minimum charge on debit cards? These are not the result of some financial conspiracy. They are a direct result of Dodd-Frank regulations. After the financial crash of 2008, President Barack Obama decided to increase the role of the federal government in the economy and impose massive new regulations on banks. As one might assume, this hasn’t worked out so well. Included in the over 3,500-page Dodd-Frank bill are rules restricting access to credit for investors and homebuyers, raising lending costs for entrepreneurs, and making it harder for small businesses to get capital to start or grow. Dodd-Frank also created the Consumer Finance Protection Bureau. This agency has carte blanche to create huge economic rules and … Read entire article »

OMB Chief Mulvaney Defends Trump Administration’s Progress

Mick Mulvaney, director of the Office of Management and Budget, said he has high expectations for the Trump administration despite the challenges of governing at a Capitol Hill event on Wednesday. “I think at the end of the day, despite the internal difficulties that the House may be having at any particular time, the internal challenges that any White House will have at any particular time, you’ve got a bunch of folks who … want to pull in the same direction and I think that is something to be proud of,” Mulvaney said during an event hosted at the Federalist Society’s fifth annual Executive Branch Review Conference. Mulvaney, whom President Donald Trump announced in December as his choice to lead the Office of Management and Budget, is a founding member of … Read entire article »

What a Middle Eastern NATO Could Accomplish for Trump

With the Middle East experiencing renewed levels of tumult, it begs consideration: Does the region need its own version of NATO? This idea appeared in The Washington Post just this week. Josh Rogin reported that during the president’s stop in Saudi Arabia, he might lay out a proposal for a regional security alliance of Arab states. It is not surprising that two major ports of call in the region—Israel and Saudi Arabia—would be part of President Donald Trump’s travels. The administration has put peace and stability in the Middle East at the top of his foreign policy agenda. In addition to these state visits, the president has already met in Washington with leaders from Egypt, Jordan, the United Arab Emirates, and Turkey. More than glad-handing, all these meetings look substantive, part of the U.S. … Read entire article »

Chronic Illness Is an Epidemic in America. This Senate Bill Will Help Address It.

Americans today are facing an epidemic of chronic illness, including arthritis, diabetes, and heart disease. In fact, chronic illness is now the biggest single driver of medical costs. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports that chronic diseases are the leading cause of death and disability in America. As of 2012, the last time the agency collected data, approximately 117 million U.S. adults had one or more chronic health conditions. The challenge of effectively caring for the growing numbers of Americans suffering with these conditions, particularly as they age into retirement, is enormous. That is why Sens. Orrin Hatch, R-Utah; Ron Wyden, D-Ore.; Johnny Isakson, R-Ga.; and Mark Warner, D-Va., have come together to address the problem. For two years, they have closely studied the impact of the chronic illness problem, particularly as … Read entire article »

Now Hillary can blame her loss on somebody other than just Comey and Russia

**Written by Doug Powers Hillary Clinton now knows another reason why she wasn’t 50 points ahead: Damn you, Twitter! Twitter co-founder Evan Williams apologized for the role Twitter may have played in electing President Trump. In an interview published Saturday in The New York Times, Williams discussed the president’s March claim to Fox News that “I think that maybe I wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t for Twitter.” “It’s a very bad thing, Twitter’s role in that,” Williams told the Times. “If it’s true that he wouldn’t be president if it weren’t for Twitter, then yeah, I’m sorry.” If anybody needs me, I’ll be spending the rest of the day trying to figure out how Twitter kept Hillary out of Wisconsin and made her pledge to put coal country out of work. **Written by … Read entire article »
