And in the process, Greenwald called out the liberal media for being a self-gratifying echo chamber where consequences for false reporting no longer apply but benefits flow. … Read entire article »

Excessive Celebration: ABC Falsely Claims NFL Not Making Players Stand

Tuesday’s edition of ABC’s World News Tonight was a prime example of how sensationalism in journalism damages credibility. Instead of leading the show by reporting on something important like CBS did with the opioid epidemic, or political conflict like NBC, ABC chose to celebrate the NFL seemingly not requiring players to stand during the National Anthem at a meeting earlier in the day. But the problem was, setting the league’s policy was not the goal of that particular meeting. … Read entire article »

Sen. Hirono: President Trump “Has No Moral Core”

SEN. MAZIE HIRONO (D-HI): Because the president is really great at calling everyone who doesn’t agree with his worldview or his perspective names. That’s what he loves to do. And meanwhile, the real world, with real problems continues. So, I have very little hope that this president, who has no moral core, as far as we can tell, to engage in a battle with Senator McCain. The fact of the matter is that when I talk with world leaders, that we are losing our position our leadership role in the world because of the kinds of actions and statements that the president makes, and — things such as the rhetoric relating to North Korea, the pulling out of the Paris Climate Accord, the saber-rattling and all of that that he … Read entire article »

Joe Scarborough: Donald Trump Is The “Antithesis” Of Jesus Christ’s Sermon On The Mount

On MSNBC’s ‘Morning Joe’ on Tuesday, host Joe Scarborough delivered a sermon about President Trump. “It is a joke, and people will wonder what the hell happened,” he said about the Trump presidency. The MSNBC host said he didn’t understand the “fever” which has gripped the Republican Party in the age of Donald Trump –and said the president represents “the antithesis of just about every single thing that Jesus Christ said on the Sermon on the Mount.” “Some things can not be debated: You look in Matthew and go through the Beatitudes, every single Beatitude, you go through Jesus’ teaching, what he says he wants people to be,” Scarborough said. “Donald Trump is the antithesis of just about every single thing that Jesus Christ said on the Sermon of the Mount.” “Go read it. … Read entire article »

Gorka: Trump’s Platform Was To Make America Great Again, Not Make The GOP Great Again

Former Trump White House deputy assistant Sebastian Gorka warns Republicans that President Trump “is a guy who breaks the mold,” and is willing to work with Democrats if the GOP will not work with him. SEB GORKA: This president was the outsider –he was never part of the GOP establishment. And there’s a reason someone who never held elected office before is now the president of the United States… The president is the master of the deal. Right? He is going to work with people who he thinks he can work with at the current time. Remember, the president’s platform was “Make America great again.” Not make to the G.O.P. Great again. And he’ll work with anybody. If you don’t work with him G.O.P. Remember that dinner with Chuck and Nancy. … Read entire article »

53% Now Support Contraceptive Mandate

President Trump rolled back an Obama-era mandate that required employer-based health care plans to cover prescription contraceptives. But new polling shows that support for such a  mandate is up. The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 53% of Likely U.S. Voters think businesses should be required by law to provide health insurance that covers all government-approved contraceptives for women without co-payments or other charges to the patients, up from 43% in July 2014. Thirty-four percent (34%) don’t think companies should be required to meet the contraceptive mandate, which was implemented under the Affordable Care Act. That’s down from 47% in July 2014. Twelve percent (12%) are not sure. (To see survey question wording, click here.) [Limited time offer now through October 18, 2017 :  Sign up now for 8 weeks … Read entire article »

The Facts About Who Pays the Most in Taxes in America

Politicians exploit public ignorance. Few areas of public ignorance provide as many opportunities for political demagoguery as taxation. Today some politicians argue that the rich must pay their fair share and label the proposed changes in tax law as tax cuts for the rich. Let’s look at who pays what, with an eye toward attempting to answer this question: Are the rich paying their fair share? According to the latest IRS data, the payment of income taxes is as follows. The top 1 percent of income earners, those having an adjusted annual gross income of $480,930 or higher, pay about 39 percent of federal income taxes. That means about 892,000 Americans are stuck with paying 39 percent of all federal taxes. The top 10 percent of income earners, those having an adjusted gross income over … Read entire article »

Trump: Tax Reform ‘Will Lift Our People From Welfare to Work’

President Donald Trump promoted his tax reform plan at The Heritage Foundation’s President’s Club, and also touted American values, the Constitution, and “God-given rights.” “We will lift our people from welfare to work, from dependence to independence, and from poverty to total beautiful prosperity,” Trump told an audience of about 1,000 people Tuesday night gathered at the Marriott Marquis in Washington. “Our tax plan will ensure that companies stay in America, grow in America, and hire in America,” the president said. “At the heart of our plans is a tax cut for everyday working Americans.” The tax reform proposal backed by Trump and congressional Republicans would increase the deduction for child care and caring for elderly adults; make the first $12,000 for individuals and first $24,000 for married couples income tax-free; eliminate the … Read entire article »

EPA Pushes Back on Practice That Environmentalist Groups Used to Dictate Agenda

When environmental pressure groups can promote their agendas through closed-door rule-making with the Environmental Protection Agency, something has gone seriously wrong with the regulatory process. This is precisely what has been happening at federal agencies in recent years—but not for much longer at the EPA. On Monday, EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt issued a directive to put an end to this process, which is called “sue and settle.” On the surface, sue and settle doesn’t sound bad. An organization sues a federal agency to compel it to issue regulations, which the agency was already required to do under the law. Instead of litigating, the agency just settles the dispute. If only that was how it worked in practice. In reality, sue and settle has many problems. Under sue and settle, environmental pressure groups have … Read entire article »

Trump Backs Temporary Obamacare Fix, but Thinks Votes Are There for Obamacare Replacement

President Donald Trump said Obamacare is “virtually dead,” but appears ready to keep it on life support for another two years. Just days after ending subsidies to insurance companies, an executive policy put in place under President Barack Obama with no approval from Congress, the Senate appears to have a bipartisan agreement to restore subsidies for two years. In that time, Trump believes there will be the votes to pass a bill similar to the Graham-Cassidy legislation that would have block granted Obamacare money to states. Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Chairman Lamar Alexander, R-Tenn., and ranking member Sen. Patty Murray, D-Wash., announced they reached a bipartisan deal backed by Senate leadership for a two-year extension of subsidies for insurance companies. The deal would also allow states to experiment with different standards for … Read entire article »

Deduction for State and Local Taxes Stunts Economic Growth, Group Warns

Congress should get rid of federal taxpayers’ deduction for state and local income taxes because it ends up costing most taxpayers billions of dollars, an organization that advocates state-level reforms says in an open letter to lawmakers. Removing the deduction will save $1.5 trillion over the next 10 years, the American Legislative Exchange Council said in the letter, published Monday. “In a show of unity from across the nation,” ALEC said in a press release, more than 100 affiliated state legislators signed the open letter to Congress urging elimination of the state and local tax deduction and passage of “real tax reform.” “The legislators from 34 states represent millions of constituents from all corners of the country, including high-tax states such as Maryland, Pennsylvania, and Minnesota,” the group said. The open letter comes … Read entire article »
