Democrats’ Defense of DACA Shows Contempt for Constitution, Rule of Law

Democrats’ Defense of DACA Shows Contempt for Constitution, Rule of Law

Imagine a lawyer defending shoplifters, arguing that because his clients were successful in getting the merchandise out of the store undetected, they should be able to keep the stolen goods free and clear. That’s what 16 Democratic attorneys general are essentially advocating in defending the so-called “Dreamers,” the children of illegal immigrants surreptitiously slipped across our southern border. Like shoplifting, it’s against the law, but because they got in, they should be able to stay. The top … Read entire article »

Obama reminds nation to thank Obama for current economic growth

**Written by Doug Powers The most unsurprising brag stretch of the week: Former President Barack Obama is taking credit for the robust economic growth that is taking place under President Trump. At a conference of mayors in Chicago, Mr. Obama congratulated himself Tuesday for strong employment numbers in the U.S. this year, saying his climate-change policies have contributed to growth. “As we took these actions, we saw the U.S. economy grow consistently,” Mr. Obama said. “We saw the longest streak of job creation in American history by far, a streak that still continues by the way.” He added wryly, “Thanks, Obama.” Hey, if the economy was doing lousy Obama would have certainly stepped up and taken responsibility, right? RIGHT!? **Written by Doug Powers (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); Twitter @ThePowersThatBe … Read entire article »

Actual WaPo fact check: Pence jobs claim correct, so only 3 Pinocchios for him

**Written by Doug Powers There’s so much spin in this “fact check” it may well have been written in of a centrifuge, so it might be a good idea to mainline Dramamine before trying to get through it all without getting dizzy. Here’s the gist… The claim: “There are more Americans working today than ever before in American history.” — Vice President Pence, remarks during a speech at the Tax Foundation, Nov. 16, 2017 The conclusion: True but false: More meaningful measures of the overall health of the job market take population into consideration. And both the labor force participation rate and the employment-to-population rate show there is still room for improvement following the Great Recession. Those rates peaked in the late 1990s or early 2000s. We were tempted to say that Pence earns Four Pinocchios, but … Read entire article »

Out of Control Agencies – Who Controls Them?

Out of Control Agencies – Who Controls Them? Many people contemplated that it was conspiracy theory that our federal agencies would go out of control – like Orwell’s 1984. Yet, who is really controlling them? There are so many investigative agencies, secret and otherwise within the federal government. CIA, FBI, NSA, etc, etc When people in the head of our government can not get information when requested about certain people and topics. We have a problem, Houston!

The Deep State Runs The United States Federal Government

The Deep State Runs The United States Federal Government

Once the rule of law is vacant, no structure is present for society and almost always anarchy follows. The United States is being governed by the deep state. The federal government bureaucracy that controls what truly happens in the government agencies. So much control being centrally concentrated within the intelligence agencies. It makes the United States resemble what you would see in mot die hard Communist states throughout history. So I guess to his happiness, Barack Obama has changed … Read entire article »

Why Trump’s Not Replacing Bureaucrats Enables the ‘Deep State’

Hillary Clinton is urging federal workers to stay in their jobs so they can fight for progressive policies again. On her book tour, the former secretary of state and presidential candidate told government workers to “stick it out, stick it out, because the tide has to turn.” “If [Democrats] can take back one or both houses of Congress in 2018, you will have people you can talk to again,” Clinton said. When Donald Trump was elected president, he promised to “drain the swamp” in Washington and return power to the American people. There is no muddier water to dredge than the mostly unaccountable administrative state. Over the course of a century, the federal bureaucracy has become large, calcified, and unmanageable. It now carries enormous weight in crafting, implementing, and adjudicating policies that affect all … Read entire article »

Why Pulling ‘To Kill a Mockingbird’ From the Classroom Hurts Students

This year, as in years past, eighth-graders in Biloxi, Mississippi, began reading the classic American novel “To Kill a Mockingbird.” And then, partway through and with little warning, they stopped. Why? Because, according to the school board vice president, it “makes people uncomfortable.” If you attended American schools within the last few decades, chances are you read Harper Lee’s “To Kill a Mockingbird.” It is a staple of American literature and a world-renowned classic, having sold 40 million copies since its first publication in 1960. It also won the Pulitzer Prize for fiction in 1961, and the book’s dramatic on-screen portrayal in 1962 cemented its fame. (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); America has overwhelmingly embraced “To Kill a Mockingbird,” so its sudden rejection in Biloxi, Mississippi, is noteworthy. And yet, in our day of hypersensitivity and … Read entire article »

3 Senators Talk Next Steps on Health Care

As two Senate lawmakers float yet another plan to fix problems with Obamacare, another wants to revisit legislation that he says would more substantially repeal the health care law. “Actually, we could have more coverage under Graham-Cassidy than under the status quo,” Sen. Bill Cassidy, R-La., said Wednesday at an event hosted by online media company Axios, referring to the bill he co-authored with Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C.  “For example, if you actually think about what we proposed, we would allow states to do so-called ‘automatic enrollment.’ You’re in, unless you’re out.” Sen. Tim Kaine, D-Va., who was also at the event, said the bipartisan plan that Sens. Lamar Alexander, R-Tenn., and Patty Murray, D-Wash., reached Tuesday represents good progress. “We need to show the American public we can do … Read entire article »

Foiled Terror Plot Raises Number of Plots, Attacks to 98 Since 9/11

The Justice Department unsealed criminal charges earlier this month against three men for plotting to attack New York City in 2016. The plotters were arrested at different times in 2016 and 2017, in different parts of the world. Since this plot occurred in the past and the first plotter was arrested in May of last year, it will be inserted into The Heritage Foundation timeline as the 87th Islamist terror plot against the U.S. since 9/11. This brings the total number of such plots to 98 since. The Department of Justice reports that Abdulrahman El Bahnasawy, a 19-year-old Canadian citizen, and Talha Haroon, a 19-year-old U.S. citizen residing in Pakistan, communicated with an undercover FBI agent in the spring of 2016 via a cell phone messaging application.The two men expressed their allegiance to … 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 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.

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 »
