Liberals´ Kavanaugh Blunder: Raising the
Stakes Without Changing The Game

Investor´s Business Daily, by J.T. Young

Original Article

Posted By:RockyTCB, 10/8/2018 6:53:51 AM

Liberals have once again pushed Senate Democrats into a strategic blunder over a Supreme Court nominee. Conventional wisdom held that the last-second attempt to scuttle Brett Kavanaugh´s appointment would provide impenetrable cover for Democrats to oppose it and cause moderate Republicans to wobble. However, liberal reckoning was wrong in last year´s Supreme Court fight, and this time inadvertently raised the political stakes for Democrats without changing the game: Winning in Trump states. Only those awaking from coma have missed Supreme Court

The ONLY reason the Dems can survive is because the left wing press covers for them.
Imagine how far ahead the conservatives would be with a balanced press!
Donald Trump is now above 50% in the polls.
That is with over 90% negative press.

Since Trump´s election the dems have been extending a schism that started with Bernie Sanders´ candidacy, the hard left versus traditional dems. The hard left is a winner in only some limited areas, however they think the country is behind them. They are completely wrong and the hard left´s tactics are driving voters away from dems. The hearings magnified and spotlighted leftist insanity. It incensed Republican supporters.

The Left, being irrational, cannot see its peril. That´s very helpful.

Attention Working Americans: Democrats
Want To Hike Your Taxes By $1.5 Trillion
Investor’s Business Daily, by Staff    Original Article
Posted By: RockyTCB- 2/15/2019 6:27:17     Post Reply
Amid all the hoopla about Democrats wanting to raise taxes on the rich, they are quietly working on a bill that would increase taxes on every working family in America. Why? To fund expanded benefits for baby boomers hitting retirement. The Social Security 2100 Act would hike the combined payroll taxes paid by workers and their employers from 12.4% today to 14.8% by 2043. The bill would also apply the payroll tax on incomes over $400,000. According to the Social Security Administration, in the first 12 years alone, this would amount to a $1.5 trillion tax hike.

Could California´s Doomed Bullet

Infrastructure: California Gov. Gavin Newsom just pulled the plug on the state´s bullet train boondoggle. President Trump should demand the $3.5 billion the federal government dumped into this black hole back, so he can put it to better use building the border wall. In his State of the State speech, Newsom said he was shelving plans for a high-speed rail line from San Francisco to Los Angeles. A plan plagued with endless delays and massive cost overruns.

Revival Going On Under Trump

Middle-Class Economics: USA Today ran a surprising story on Tuesday headlined "Can the middle-class revival under Trump last?" It´s surprising — shocking really — because it might just be the first time a major news outlet has admitted that there has been a middle-class revival under Trump. We did a search for news stories that used the phrase "middle-class revival" since Trump took office. Other than the USAT story and a syndicated column written a year-and-a-half ago, we found none.

In a recent federal filing before the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, lawyers for Apple (AAPL) maintained that the tech giant should not have to consider increasing its leadership´s ideological diversity and that arguments made in support of greater viewpoint variance were "without merit." The SEC disagreed, sending Apple´s legal team a stunning rebuke. Because of that decision, at next month´s annual meeting of Apple investors, its shareholders will have the chance to vote on whether the Silicon Valley-based company should seek to increase ideological diversity or continue operating in a progressive prepotency.

Border Security: Not only are Democrats opposed to a border wall, now they want to ensure that those who make it across the border can´t be returned. Tell us again how Democrats aren´t the party of open borders? On Monday, talks between congressional Republicans and Democrats over funding for border protection had broken down. Not because of Republican intransigence. They´ve already agreed

Good Times: When Trump rattled off a series of economic successes in his State of the Union, he could have added one more. The public´s quality of life has improved sharply in the past two years. "We have created 5.3 million new jobs and, importantly, added 600,000 new manufacturing jobs," Trump said at one point in this address. "Wages are rising at the fastest pace in decades ... . Unemployment has reached the lowest rate in half a century. African-American, Hispanic-American and Asian-American unemployment have all reached their lowest levels ever recorded.

Election 2020: Starbucks tycoon Howard Schultz had barely gotten the words out of his mouth about a possible independent bid for president before an angry Democratic mob descended on him. He should ignore them. It´s a "pathetic vanity project," one said. Others threatened to boycott Starbucks. Neera Tanden, head of the left-wing Center for American Progress, called the prospect of Schultz´s running "disgusting" and said it will "help destroy democracy." Former Clinton campaign spokesman Brian Fallon said if Schultz runs it would put him at the top of the "all-time list of villains."

Big Lie: Presidential wannabe Elizabeth Warren´s obfuscation about her Native American heritage may have finally done her in. The latest shoe to drop is her 1986 registration card for the Texas bar, in which she claimed her race is "American Indian." This week, seven years after the public first learned that she´d been claiming to be a Native American, the Massachusetts senator sort of apologized for doing so. But only after the Washington Post unearthed her Texas bar registration card, filled out by hand nearly 33 years ago.

Foreign Affairs: At the tail end of his State of the Union address Tuesday night, as President Donald Trump touted his foreign policy achievements, Democrats sat stone faced. Not a surprise. But outside the House chamber, even some of Trump´s harshest critics have grudgingly acknowledged that he´s had several big wins. Shortly before the November 2016 elections, a group of 50 top Republican foreign policy experts signed an unprecedented letter forcefully denouncing the Republican candidate for president. "From a foreign policy perspective, Donald Trump is not qualified to be president and commander-in-chief,"

Media Bias: While journalists are getting pink slips across the country, the Washington Post decided to dump a boatload of cash for a Super Bowl image ad that tried to portray the news media as national heroes. Here´s a better, and much cheaper, idea to restore the industry´s shattered reputation: Be less blatantly partisan. In the 60-second ad, Tom Hanks intones about the importance of journalists against the backdrop of historic events. Thankfully, during these times, the ad says, "There´s someone to gather the facts.

On the eve of his second State of the Union address, President Donald Trump faces a country in a foul mood after the lengthy government shutdown and the bitter battle over constructing a border wall. The public´s view of the economy has soured as well, according to the IBD/TIPP Poll. However, Trump has convinced most Americans that there´s a growing crisis on the southern border. The latest IBD/TIPP Poll shows declines across the board: on presidential approval, direction of the country, financial stress, and whether the economy is improving or not.

Labor Market: The latest expectation-shattering jobs report isn´t a fluke. It´s another sign that President Trump´s economic policies are improving the lives of middle class families. The 304,000 gain in jobs reported by the Labor Department was nearly twice the consensus estimate. And it comes after December´s expectation-busting gains. There´s more. The jobs picture is so strong right now that it´s pulling people in who´ve been sitting on the sidelines. In fact, for the first time in more than 20 years,

WASHINGTON, D.C. — House Speaker Nancy Pelosi warned President Donald Trump on Thursday that a future Democratic president could declare a national emergency to achieve an agenda, such as gun control policy. Responding to the president’s announcement that he will declare a national emergency related to the U.S. southern border, Pelosi maintained that “Democratic presidents can declare emergencies as well. So the precedent that the president is setting here is something that should be met with great unease and dismay by the Republicans.” (Photos) Speaker Pelosi told reporters at her weekly press conference, “You want to talk about a national

It has been two and a half weeks since Jussie Smollett reported that he was the victim of a hate crime, and in that time, his story has fallen apart completely. (snip) the home of the two "persons of interests" in the widely circulated community alert was raided by Chicago police. In that raid, they seized a list of items including multiple containers of bleach, a "red hat," an Empire script, a Mossberg rifle, and two computers. The home is occupied by the two men, and at least one is an extra on Jussie Smollett´s show, Empire.

On Wednesday, May 10, 2017, my first full day on the job as acting director of the FBI, I sat down with senior staff involved in the Russia case—the investigation into alleged ties between the Trump campaign and the Russian government. As the meeting began, my secretary relayed a message that the White House was calling. The president himself was on the line. I had spoken with him the night before, in the Oval Office, when he told me he had fired James Comey. A call like this was highly unusual. Presidents do not, typically, call FBI directors.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) on Thursday celebrated Amazon´s decision to cancel its plans to build a second headquarters in New York City. "Today was the day a group of dedicated, everyday New Yorkers & their neighbors defeated Amazon’s corporate greed, its worker exploitation, and the power of the richest man in the world," Ocasio-Cortez, one of the deal´s staunchest critics, wrote. (Tweet) Her statement came shortly after Amazon in a blog post announced that it was canceling its plan to build offices, dubbed "HQ2," in Queens, citing pushback from "a number of state and local politicians."

President Donald Trump demanded Wednesday evening that the State of California return $3.5 billion in federal funds after Gov. Gavin Newsom canceled most of the state’s high-speed rail project, saying it was too expensive. “California has been forced to cancel the massive bullet train project after having spent and wasted many billions of dollars,” the president tweeted. “They owe the Federal Government three and a half billion dollars. We want that money back now. Whole project is a “green” disaster!”

The GOP Majority Leader in the Senate persuaded President Donald Trump to not veto the GOP’s flawed border security bill by promising to back a national emergency construction of border walls, according to insider leaks to the establishment media. The Washington Post reported that “Trump had been leaning against supporting the congressional spending bill but relented after several conversations with [Majority Leader Sen. Mitch] McConnell, who then announced his agreement to go along with an emergency declaration.” One reason for Trump’s last-minute opposition is that congressional leaders conducted the negotiations without significant White House involvement.

WASHINGTON— What is happening to the Democrats? Captivated by a handful of liberal superstars, they are venturing where the party has long feared to tread: Steep taxes on the rich. Abolishing an immigration enforcement agency. Proposing "economic transformation" to combat climate change. Gleefully waving goodbye to a big business — and its jobs. On Thursday, newly-elected Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez led a chorus of cheers as Amazon announced it was abandoning plans to build a sought-after headquarters in New York City. Activists berated the online giant for a $3 billion package of tax breaks she said the city could better invest

Washington — Millions of Americans are waiting for Robert Mueller to give them the final word on whether the Trump campaign conspired with the 2016 Russian election interference effort — and whether their president is under the influence of a foreign adversary. Millions of Americans may be sorely disappointed. Unless Mueller files a detailed indictment charging members of the Trump campaign with conspiring with Russia, the public may never learn the full scope of what Mueller and his team has found — including potentially scandalous behavior that doesn´t amount to a provable crime.

Andrew McCabe is a national disgrace. He was part of the most corrupt and most partisan leadership team in FBI history and was fired for being dishonest under oath. And yet, America owes him a big thank-you. McCabe, you see, has reminded us once again that there really is a powerful deep state, and that there has not been a full accounting of rampant FBI misconduct during the presidential campaign of 2016. There is also still too much we don’t know about the role top aides to then-President Barack Obama and higher-ups in the Justice Department

Move over, Speaker Pelosi, and make room for New York Governor Andrew Cuomo and New York City Mayor Bill deBlasio as Democrats waking up to the disaster the rise of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is inflicting on the Democratic Party. She is no longer just a potential threat to their schemes and operating principles, she has taken a wrecking ball to them. Trust me: they desperately want to be rid of her but, due to her media presence and popularity with the young and ignorant, cannot visibly stick the shiv in her back.
