New Calls for Criminal Investigation of Obama Aides in ‘Unmasking’ Scandal

New calls are coming in for the Justice Department to launch a criminal investigation into the “unmasking” scandal swirling around a cluster of former Obama administration officials. The calls came as House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes, R-Calif., identified a fourth Obama national security official as a “person of interest” who improperly “unmasked” Trump officials and leaked the information to the news media. In a letter Tuesday to the National Security Agency, the California Republican requested the agency report on improper “unmasking” requests made by Ben Rhodes, former President Barack Obama’s deputy national security adviser for strategic communications, according to Circa. As such, he was the No. 2 ranking official on the National Security Council. Rhodes’ name is now added to three other top Obama national security officials who are accused of … Read entire article »

Democrats’ ‘Better Deal’ Proposals Would Make Americans Worse Off

On July 24, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi unveiled proposals by House Democrats to create “a better deal” for American families and workers. Unfortunately, the press releases accompanying the launch of the “Better Deal” initiative outline general policies that would undermine economic opportunities for Americans and harm American consumers. In other words, this initiative flunks basic truth in labeling standards. More accurately, it constitutes “a worse deal” for Americans. Let’s see why. First, the initiative calls for “rais[ing] the wages and incomes of American workers and creat[ing] millions of good-paying jobs.” To this end, it calls for government “investment” in job creation projects, “fighting back” against corporations that outsource American jobs, and “ensur[ing] a living wage” for all Americans—a proposal that suggests a higher government-set minimum wage. But all of these suggestions would harm, not help, … Read entire article »

The World Must Turn Back Venezuela’s Growing Dictatorship

Over the weekend, Venezuela succumbed to dictatorship. It’s going to take a concerted international effort to reverse this ugly development. On July 30, socialist strongman Nicolas Maduro held a fraudulent and highly unpopular election. As a result, all 545 seats of a new “Constituent Assembly” are being filled with candidates hand-picked by Maduro’s National Socialist Party. The Constituent Assembly is empowered to rewrite Venezuela’s constitution, expel members of the opposition from the current National Assembly, and consolidate all power in the executive branch. On the day of the election, Maduro’s security forces killed 16 innocent demonstrators and bystanders. Videos showed national guardsmen pouring live fire into unarmed crowds and lobbing teargas into hospitals and apartment buildings. In 121 days of anti-government protests, government forces have killed 130 innocents and detained 3,500 demonstrators. More than … Read entire article »

Trump Backs Merit-Based Changes to Immigration System

President Donald Trump, who already has taken executive actions to stem the flow of illegal immigrants, on Wednesday put the weight of the White House behind a bill to begin to modernize the nation’s immigration system by favoring new entries who bring needed skills to America. Trump announced he is backing legislation co-sponsored by two Republican senators that would end the practice of “chain migration,” which gives priority to admitting relatives of immigrants who already are here legally. However, most Democrats and some Republicans could be skeptical about backing a bill that limits legal immigration. Sens. David Perdue, R-Ga., and Tom Cotton, R-Ark., appeared with the president at the White House to promote their bill, called the Reforming American Immigration for Strong Employment Act, or RAISE. “The RAISE Act will reduce poverty, increase wages, … Read entire article »

Conservative Leader Says Congress Must Make Good on ‘Bold’ Tax Reform

The chairman of a conservative House caucus said Wednesday that he wants tax reform to be so bold and sweeping that IRS employees will be looking for jobs.   “We need to be bold,” Rep. Mark Meadows, R-N.C., chairman of the House Freedom Caucus, said at an event sponsored by Meadows and Americans for Prosperity at the Newseum in Washington, D.C. “A few blocks from here is a building called the Internal Revenue Service. … What a great message we could send them if we start to simplify the tax code where we could fill it out on a postcard, where we don’t have to go any further, and we send a lot of those people who work a few blocks from here home because they are not needed any more.” The … Read entire article »

Obama’s birthday gives uber-objective media a chance to show how much he’s missed

**Written by Doug Powers Ex-President Barack Obama turned 56 on Friday, and some of the objective guardians of the Republic in the media got a chance to reminisce fondly about that 8-year vacation they had. It’s even more entertaining when accompanied by a Barbra Streisand/Andrew Lloyd Webber hit: ♩ Mem’ries light the corners of my mind. ♫ Barack Obama wasn’t just the “president,” he was the “crooner-in-chief.” Take a trip down memory lane as he celebrates his 56th … Read entire article »
