Trumps Spend $5 Million Less Than Obamas on White House Salaries

An analysis of White House salary data reveals that President Donald Trump’s administration is spending $5 million less of taxpayer money on his staff than his predecessor. Trump employs 377 people at the White House, with a total of $35.8 million, while former President Barack Obama paid $40.9 million for 476 employees in 2015, according to data analyzed by Open the Books. Another key difference between the Obama and Trump White House is the first lady’s staff. Michelle Obama retained 24 staffers in the first year of the Obama White House. Melania Trump currently employs four—a chief of staff who is also listed as adviser to the president, a deputy chief of staff, a communications director, and a scheduler. “Projected four-year savings on the White House payroll could top $22 million,” Adam Andrzejewski, CEO of Open the Books, writes for Forbes. Those projected … Read entire article »

I’m a Pediatrician. How Transgender Ideology Has Infiltrated My Field and Produced Large-Scale Child Abuse.

Transgender politics have taken Americans by surprise, and caught some lawmakers off guard. Just a few short years ago, not many could have imagined a high-profile showdown over transgender men and women’s access to single-sex bathrooms in North Carolina. But transgender ideology is not just infecting our laws. It is intruding into the lives of the most innocent among us—children—and with the apparent growing support of the professional medical community. As explained in my 2016 peer reviewed article, “Gender Dysphoria in Children and Suppression of Debate,” professionals who dare to question the unscientific party line of supporting gender transition therapy will find themselves maligned and out of a job. I speak as someone intimately familiar with the pediatric and behavioral health communities and their practices. I am a mother of four who served 17 … Read entire article »

In Dissent, Justices Thomas and Gorsuch Defend the Second Amendment

The Second Amendment is subject to persistent threats these days, and it didn’t receive any help from a majority of the Supreme Court last week. By a margin of 7-2, the court denied review in a gun rights case out of the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, Peruta v. California. The decision leaves in place a troubling California statute requiring residents to prove to their county sheriff that they have some “good cause” to carry a firearm in order to receive a concealed carry permit. Justice Clarence Thomas, joined by Justice Neil Gorsuch, authored a dissent that explains why the court’s decision not to hear the case is disappointing. The justices point to the Supreme Court’s most recent Second Amendment cases, District of Columbia v. Heller (2008) and McDonald v. Chicago (2010). Heller required … Read entire article »

How One Man Helped Propel the American Revolution

That the brilliant wordsmith Thomas Jefferson was the principal author of the Declaration of Independence is indisputable, but a lesser-known fact is that the man who played the indispensable role in its adoption by the Continental Congress in July 1776 was John Adams of Massachusetts, our second president. Jefferson later confirmed Adams’ role as the tireless “floor manager” of the declaration: No man better merited than Mr. John Adams to hold a most conspicuous place in the design. He was the pillar of its support on the floor of Congress, its ablest advocate and defender against the multifarious assaults encountered. As historian David McCullough has written, tension in the congressional debate was heightened by the sighting of a hundred British ships off New York, the first arrivals of a fleet that would number … Read entire article »

Washington Post is officially out of Trump bombshells

**Written by Doug Powers Back in February the Washington Post announced a change in slogans to match the newspaper’s renewed commitment to “journalism” after waking up from an 8-year Hope & Change slumber rested and ready: How’s the WaPo’s push to dig up a presidential bombshell that makes Watergate look like a dud firecracker in comparison coming along? (Via Hot Air) I’m just guessing here, but I’d be willing to bet a few dollars that this video features … Read entire article »
