A mystery: Americans are happier
over declining government regulations

Hot Air, by Andrew Malcolm

Original Article

Posted By:LittleHoodedMonk, 10/24/2018 12:15:01 AM

Here’s something that defies explanation: The proportion of Americans who now believe there are too many government regulations has just fallen to the lowest level since Barack Obama took office. Now, what could possibly explain such a dramatic drop? Obama loved government regulations. The Illinois Democrat rarely encountered a new government rule that he did not like. (Snip) So now after but 21 months of the Trump presidency, only 39 percent say there are too many regulations. Thirty-three percent say there’s about the right amount. And a quarter say we need more government regulations.

Comments:
Now, now Andrew. Cut President Trump some slack. While he may be stretching the truth a little (can I say white lies), 0bama is outright making up all his claims, or as Texans say, "whoppers". The numbers that any President gives are mixed with the fact as to who is in office reporting them. That is, until the 0bama holdovers and their sycophant media tries to make them bad for President Trump, in spite of all his "winning."

Most people don´t know of many regulations, unless they run a small business, take out commercial loans that get securitized or work in specialized industries. So when polled many may reasonably say we have about the correct number. But when you work in a job that has to slog thru and deal with the billions of mind=numbingly stupid and oppressive regulations, then your answer to the polling question will likely be different.

Regulations are the typical method which totalitarians use to control people. Government is the overwhelming force that crushes the will, incentive and drive of people trying to make a living. It is a destructive force when used as a cudgel to force people to submit instinctively. Look at the faces of the people in tyrannical countries and you will see defeat and despair. Free people want government off their backs.

Government regulations are still growing exponentially. Go check out the Code of Federal Regulations. https://www.ecfr.gov/cgi-bin/ECFR?SID=a21627bcf51e1ba27234b5519e450c9f&mc=true&page=browse

Who Owns the Women’s March?
Daily Beast, by Emily Shugerman    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 1/19/2019 9:31:16     Post Reply
In its first, record-shattering year, the Women’s March brought together nearly 4 million people in a simultaneous primal scream against the new president. But two years later, the unity has frayed like a well-worn pussy hat, with power struggles playing out in the run-up to marches that will be held across the country on Saturday, Jan. 19. The original Washington, D.C., march organizers, who now operate as the nonprofit Women’s March Inc., have applied for a trademark of the name “Women’s March,” angering local organizers who fear they will have to pay to use it. At the same time, some of the local “sister marchers” are distancing

South Carolina Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham worked himself into an angry-faced tirade on Fox News Sunday, even appearing to remove his microphone as he and host Chris Wallace ended the interview. The Senate Judiciary Committee chairman became agitated as Wallace asked him about the Republican Party´s course of action should 85-year-old "liberal icon" Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg vacate her seat amid ongoing cancer treatment. Wallace particularly asked Graham whether he thinks a "political circus" could erupt should President Donald Trump, much-loathed by the left, nominate a staunchly

Oakland, CA- A U.S. judge in California on Sunday blocked Trump administration rules, which would allow more employers to opt out of providing women with no-cost birth control, from taking effect in 13 states and Washington, D.C. Judge Haywood Gilliam granted a request for a preliminary injunction by California, 12 other states and Washington, D.C. The plaintiffs sought to prevent the rules from taking effect as scheduled on Monday while a lawsuit against them moved forward. But Gilliam limited the scope of the ruling to the plaintiffs, rejecting their request that he block the rules nationwide. The changes would

Graham urging Trump to reopen
government for a few weeks

Washington - A Republican lawmaker advising President Donald Trump said he is encouraging the president to reopen the government for several weeks to continue negotiating with Democrats over funding for a U.S.-Mexico border wall before the president takes the more drastic step of declaring a national emergency. But that may be wishful thinking, given that Sen. Lindsey Graham also says Trump still wants to reach a deal for the wall before agreeing to reopen shuttered government departments. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, a leading Democratic negotiator, insists that Trump reopen the government first.

Immigration loophole allows
MS-13 gang members to go free

If the Trump administration had its way, Ramon Arevalo Lopez and Oscar Canales Molina would have been either in detention or deported. Instead, they were out on the streets — thanks to judges’ orders — where, according to police, they and another illegal immigrant delivered an MS-13 gang beat-down to two high school students in New York. All three of the illegal immigrants entered the U.S. in 2016 as unaccompanied alien children, meaning they crossed the border without parents — a status that earned them a quick release into the country, where they were quickly reunited with their family and began to live while awaiting

Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah has been hospitalized in serious condition in Beirut after apparently suffering a heart attack, Lebanese media outlets reported on Saturday. Another report said he also suffered a stroke, and that he has been fighting cancer. The reports were not confirmed by any official sources. The Lebanese media reports also noted that Nasrallah had not been seen or heard publicly for several weeks, ever since the IDF launched Operation Northern Shield to eradicate the terrorist organization´s cross-border underground tunnels. A senior Iranian official refuted the reports on Sunday.

After strikes in Syria,
Netanyahu threatens to hit
Iranian targets even harder
Times of Israel [Jerusalem], by Staff    Original Article

After confirming that Israel bombed an Iranian weapons depot in Syria, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu warned Sunday that the Jewish state will strike even harder if it proves necessary to prevent Iran from gaining a military foothold in Syria. Netanyahu made the remarks as he toured areas in the Upper Galilee to review the end of an Israel Defense Forces operation aimed at locating and destroying tunnels dug under the border from Lebanon. Israel says the Iran-backed Hezbollah terror group intended to use the tunnels for a massive assault on the country. During the tour, the prime minister repeated his open admission,

The White House requested options for a military strike against Iran last September, a report by the Wall Street Journal revealed on Sunday, citing current and former U.S. officials. The request, reportedly made the National Security Council led by national security advisor John Bolton, alarmed Pentagon and State Department officials, The Journal wrote on Sunday. The Council made the move after an Iranian-aligned group fired missiles into Baghdad´s diplomatic quarter, which hosts the U.S. embassy in Iraq. No one was harmed.

Worms may not have spines, but they´re doing some back-breaking sewer work in more than 4,000 toilets across India. Since 2015, a creative new type of toilet called the Tiger Toilet has been popping up outside homes and schools around the country. From the outside, this toilet looks like any other pit latrine. But it doesn´t smell like one. Instead, it comes with a built-in population of tiger worms. "Their natural breeding, natural habitat is in cow dung heaps, or horse s**t heaps, that kind of thing," Ajeet Oak, director of the Tiger Toilet company, told Business Insider. "Poop. "Poop.

Huawei Technologies has been one of the most successful Chinese conglomerates of the modern era. The telecoms company recently surpassed Apple as the world’s second-biggest supplier of cellphones globally. As a key part of Beijing’s “digital Silk Road” initiative, it claims that its services are used in more than 170 countries. But the company is attracting growing scrutiny internationally. A number of governments are concerned that the company may still have ties with the Chinese security services — prompting a number of those governments to put the company under scrutiny. There are particular concerns about the use

U.S. President Donald Trump said he "couldn’t care less" if details from his conversation with Russian leader Vladimir Putin were released. Trump was responding to a Washington Post report, which said he went to great lengths to hide details of his discussions with Putin. Trump took possession of his interpreter’s notes after a 2017 meeting in Hamburg and instructed the linguist not to discuss the matter with other administration officials, the Post said, citing current and former U.S. officials. "We were talking about Israel and securing Israel and lots of others things,” Trump said in an interview with Fox News on Saturday.

SpaceX, the private rocket company founded by the billionaire Elon Musk, is laying off about 10 percent of its work force in what it framed as a necessary cutback to position the company for an unchartered future. The company will have about 6,000 employees remaining after the layoffs, which will take place companywide. (Snip) The Los Angeles Times first reported the cuts, citing an email sent to employees by the company’s president, Gwynne Shotwell. SpaceX was offering at least eight weeks of pay and other benefits to those who were being laid off, the newspaper reported. The company said the layoffs were a

The federal government shutdown has presented a unique opportunity for President Donald Trump to clear out the deadwood in the federal bureaucracy, saving U.S. taxpayers billions of dollars in salaries, perks, and rented office space for people who aren´t doing anything productive. At the same time, Trump can get rid of dozens, possibly even hundreds of Deep State operatives in the government, handpicked by Barack Obama and Bill Clinton for their loyalty to the Democratic Party, not their country or the law. These people leak like a screen door in a submarine, mainly to CNN and MSNBC, the twin headquarters

A near majority of Republicans do not have a favorable view of freshman Senator Willard “Mitt” Romney (R-UT), according to a PBS NewsHour/NPR/Marist poll released on Thursday. The poll, conducted January 10-13, found 48% of “Republicans and conservative-leaning” have an “unfavorable” view Romney. Just 29% view Romney favorably while another 23% are “unsure” or “never heard” of him. Never Trumpers like Bill Kristol have said Romney is now the “leader of the Republican Resistance to” President Donald Trump, and the PBS NewsHour/NPR/Marist poll again shows how unpopular of a label that is among Republicans.

CNN legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin fretted Friday that many Americans would dismiss the news media as a "bunch of leftist liars" in the wake of the BuzzFeed News story called "not accurate" by special counsel Robert Mueller´s office. BuzzFeed set off a Washington firestorm on Thursday with its report that President Donald Trump had directed longtime lawyer Michael Cohen to lie to Congress about negotiations to build a Trump Tower in Moscow. However, on Friday night, a spokesman for Mueller´s office said the report was "not accurate."

In the latest NPR/PBS NewsHour/Marist poll released Thursday, President Donald Trump may have suffered some among Republicans overall, but he saw a huge point gain in a different demographic breakdown, and an unexpected one by conventional wisdom. In early December, the poll had Trump’s approval rating among Latino adults at 31%. The results from the poll released Thursday show the president’s job approval among Latino adults at 50%. That is an astonishing 19 point swing. Prior results had less variance, with Latino approval numbers at 36% in their November 1st findings. It was 27% in the pollster’s mid-October survey.
