We Hear You: Trump Prescribes Pain of Obamacare for Congress

Editor’s note: Fred Lucas’ reporting on a possible move by President Trump to compel Congress to live with Obamacare, and on a surprising U.S. vote at a U.N. human rights gathering, stirred response from The Daily Signal’s audience. We’ve got some of that and more in today’s roundup. Write us at letters@dailysignal.com—Ken McIntyre Dear Daily Signal: I have for 30 years of my adult life resented that Congress does not have to live under the laws that they pass upon we the people (“How Trump Could Force Congress and Its Staff to Live Under Obamacare”).  I am just one grateful 74-year-old widow with no clout except God and the brain and heart that he gave me. I am praying that whatever needs to happen to level the playing field in our governance will … Read entire article »

Conservatives Push for Democrats to Stop Obstructing Trump Judicial Nominees

Conservatives are launching a campaign to put pressure on Democrats and counter what they view as the obstruction of President Donald Trump’s judicial nominees. “This is an issue that has energized the American people in a unique way last November,” Carrie Severino, chief counsel and policy director of the Judicial Crisis Network, told The Daily Signal in a phone interview. “The issue of making sure that we have principled judges on the courts was a key driving force behind the people who elected Donald Trump. “He has a mandate on this issue to continue to put great judges on our federal courts, and we have seen an excellent set of nominees.”   The Judicial Crisis Network, an organization dedicated to defending the Constitution and what it calls the Founding Fathers’ vision of … Read entire article »

Trump Fires Back at the ‘Fake News’ Media

The Daily Signal’s Facebook Live show “Top 10” features the top news stories of the week, many of which often go underreported by the mainstream media. This week, President Donald Trump fired back at the “fake news” media for complaining about the different tones he used in his back-to-back speeches. Hillary Clinton is still in the news and she’s complaining about losing the election in her new book “What Happened.” ESPN mixed sports and politics when it asked a radio announcer to switch games because of his name—Robert Lee. While many football players protest the national anthem, Jacksonville elementary students showed a true act of patriotism.  We covered all of this and much more on this week’s top 10 must-see moments. Check out the video. The post Trump Fires Back at the ‘Fake News’ Media appeared … Read entire article »

Hurricane Harvey Is Racing Toward Texas. Here’s What You Need to Know.

Meteorologists have upgraded Hurricane Harvey to a Category 2 storm with 110 mph winds and expect that it will grow to a Category 3 hurricane before landfall tonight or tomorrow. If it does continue to strengthen, this will be the most powerful storm in almost 12 years. Hurricane Wilma was the last Category 3 storm, which struck Florida in October 2005. Even as it stands now, Hurricane Harvey is set to have a serious impact on Texas and Louisiana. Current predictions call for Harvey to make landfall by Saturday morning and then begin to weaken. Unfortunately, those same predications say that Harvey might stall, staying over the Texas coast until next Wednesday or longer. This means that beyond the winds and the coastal storm surge, serious rainfall and flooding is to be expected … Read entire article »

Just in time! Hillary Clinton to introduce herself to Wisconsin

**Written by Doug Powers If Hillary Clinton somehow manages to win the Dem nomination again in 2020, the DNC now knows what they have to do: Tell her it’s a book tour: Hillary Clinton’s book tour will take her to several states she lost on Election Day. Clinton will make a stop in Wisconsin on Nov. 9, one year and one day after she lost to President Trump. She was often criticized for not campaigning in Wisconsin during the presidential election. The former secretary of state will also visit Florida, Michigan, Georgia and Pennsylvania to discuss her memoir, What Happened, about her stunning defeat to Trump. There’s no way Clinton will flat-out admit it was a mistake not to go to Wisconsin, so my money’s on “cheese allergy” being her #1 explanation for avoiding … Read entire article »
