Putting An End To Obama´s
Economy-Destroying Regulatory Siege

Investor´s Business Daily, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:RockyTCB, 1/5/2017 7:17:41 AM

Regulation: As President Obama continues his bizarre last-minute regulatory siege without letup, Donald Trump has made it clear he´ll undo most of the unneeded rules once he´s in office. And Congress hopes to make it very easy for him to do. As he heads for the exits, Obama is engaged in a frenzy of regulation, intended to hamstring American businesses and reward green groups and unions. But while the pace has picked up recently, it´s really nothing new. As Paul Bedard of the Washington Examiner has noted, Obama´s "lame duck administration poured on thousands more new regulations in 2016 at a a

Going for broke hoping to throw as much crap on the walls and seeing how much of it will stick or be very difficult to restore back to original condition.

The only reason this has been so successful is that almost no one will call it what it is and oppose it for fear of being ruined in the media on various trumped up charges racism or not giving him a chance.

We will see if TRUMP is the ´savior´ that so many think he will be. If he just delivers on keeping his campaign promises, it wold be a great start, but millions of us fear he is going to be taken off task and derailed by the RINOs and the special interest groups.

W wanted to position himself as the new Reagan, but then he was forced to take a different course after only a few months in office. Then after re-election he tried to take on the looming demise of Social Security, but was rebuffed as something that nobody but the demonrats could touch.

After 8 years or no action by the RINOs, he is going to have to battle THEM first, because they really are not on his side, or OURS.

The Republicans have rightly earned the name of the No Follow Up Party. Trump is his own man and doesn´t owe a penny to any vested interest or the Donor Class. Plus as a businessman he knows that there is no second chance or a do over in business. You deliver or the customer fires you. There is hope that this time it will be different.

The Federal Government´s Student-Loan Fraud
Investor´s Business Daily, by Staff    Original Article
Posted By: RockyTCB- 3/20/2017 8:19:07     Post Reply
Education: President Obama had a great idea back in 2010: nationalize the student loan program, and its problems would soon go away. It didn´t happen. Instead, more people are refusing to pay their student loans than ever before. In a study released last week, the Consumer Federation of America found that millions of people were in arrears on $137 billion in federal student loans in the first nine months of 2016, an increase of 14% from 2015. All told, the federal government´s portfolio of student loans now stands at a whopping $1.3 trillion. As the Washington Post notes, "What´s striking about the

Health Reform: Critics of the Republican´s ObamaCare replacement plan — and many moderate Republicans as well — complain that it will result in millions losing insurance. What nobody asks is whether we have too much insurance today. Insurance, after all, is supposed to make health care more affordable. But what if it´s making it less so? University of Michigan economist Mark Perry recently compared inflation rates for health care with price increases for cosmetic surgery. What he discovered was illuminating. From 1998 to 2016, the overall inflation rate was 47.2%. But for medical care services, prices went up 100%. And for hospital services,

Turkish President Recep Erdogan has urged all Turks living in Europe to have at least five children, saying they are the future of the continent and that it would be the best response to the “injustices” imposed on expatriates there. “Go live in better neighborhoods. Drive the best cars. Live in the best houses. Make not three, but five children. Because you are the future of Europe. That will be the best response to the injustices against you,” Erdogan said in the city of Eskisehir on Friday, according to AP. The comments were made while the Turkish president was campaigning for a

After a flood of gushing media coverage touting his deep family devotion as reason for his decision to stay in Washington after his term ended, President Obama turns out not to be quite the devoted family man he was portrayed as after all. He´s just jetted off to Tahiti, alone, without family, in what must be his fourth vacay to yet another exotic private pleasure resort in the wake of leaving office. It´s the life of the jet-set, the idle rich, the rich wastrel, the luxury mooch...the Hollywood elite after they´ve made it big in pictures, or the new-money shady-business magnate

As night follows day, defenders of big government trotted out "Sesame Street´s" Big Bird as the poster child of President Trump´s terrible spending cuts. The Daily Beast story on Trump´s budget proposal to cut taxpayer funding to the Corporation for Public Broadcasting features an ax-wielding man about to chop Big Bird´s head off. Politico has a story titled "Can Big Bird Survive Trump?" In a "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" segment mocking Trump´s budget, Donald Trump fires Big Bird. These folks would do well to find a new mascot. Big Bird is big business, and doesn´t need taxpayer money to survive. First, let´s take a

Fiscal Policy: President Trump has clearly brought his business acumen to bear when crafting his first budget proposal, producing the most gimmick-free, strategic, focused — and deeply conservative — spending plan we´ve ever seen. The White House had already revealed the basic outline of Trump´s budget plan: He intended to cut domestic program by $54 billion so he could fund a much-needed boost in military spending. The "skinny budget" he released on Thursday provides details as to where those spending cuts will come from. Every agency except Defense, Homeland Security and Veterans Affairs is targeted for reductions that range up to 31%. These

Will Single-Payer Health Care Be
California´s Next Big Fiscal Crisis?

Health Care: Once again, a California politician has put forward what he believes is a great idea: A single-payer health care plan for all Californians. Sorry, but such plans don´t work — and never have. It must be something in the water. Since California´s drought ended early this winter, its loopy politicians seem to have gone ga-ga over imposing a single-payer health care plan on the state. The idea has a history. During the former GOP Governator Arnold Schwarzenegger´s terms in office, he vetoed not one but two single-payer bills that crossed his desk, in 2006 and 2008. For a while, the notion

President Obama made a big deal about the resumption of U.S. carrier travel to Cuba. JetBlue in particular got Obama´s accolades. After all, when the president of the United States sets the example for Cuba tourist travel, showing how it´s all tropical music, classic cars, Cuban cigars, mojitos, and dancing like Beyoncé out on the Malecón, who could resist? Today, JetBlue has cut back its flights "to better match demand." And in the last few days, it has been joined by two other airliners, Silver and Frontier, fleeing for their lives like Marielitos. They all said demand isn´t what they expected.

Now We Know: Trump Paid More
Than His Fair Share Of Taxes In 2005

When MSNBC´s Rachel Maddow started promoting her big scoop about President Trump´s tax returns, she made it seem like it would be the shocker story of the year. Trump resolutely refused to release his tax returns during the campaign, a break from tradition for presidential candidates. So many in the media were anxiously awaiting what they expected were embarrassing revelations. Turns out that in 2005 — the only return Maddow got her hands on — Trump paid a huge amount of taxes: $38 million to be exact. Based on his income for the year, that worked out to a tax rate of nearly

Media: The mainstream press turned on Rachel Maddow after her disastrous attempt to drum up ratings by hyping a humdrum Donald Trump tax return. Why are they upset? She just did what they´ve been doing since Trump got elected. After teasing a "huge scoop" on Twitter — that she had Trump´s tax returns — Maddow got scooped by the White House, which announced a half-hour before her show started that Trump paid $38 million in taxes in 2005, which was all Maddow had. That´s a huge amount of taxes by any standard, and represented 24% of Trump´s income that year. It didn´t

Economy: We´ve been cataloging the sharp upturn in optimism since Donald Trump won the November election, and the Business Roundtable has just added a new one to the pile. Not that you´d know about from the endless media dirge. The Business Roundtable survey of 141 CEOs — of some of the largest companies in the country — not only found these chief executives more optimistic, but made clear why: Trump´s victory in November and the promise of relief from the anti-business agenda of the Obama years.

It seemed a little early to condemn NFL teams for freezing out Colin Kaepernick. Barely a week had gone by in free agency. With one exception — albeit a grotesque, borderline-obscene one — not many quarterbacks had been coming off of the market. Bleacher Report’s Friday story on how front-office types still want nothing to do with him for his protests during the national anthem shined another light on it. (Snip) Come on. Stop it. Do not ever say Colin Kaepernick can´t get a job because he´s not good enough. Think of a better excuse. Think of a better lie.

Howard Schultz, the current CEO of Starbucks, will step down from his role at the giant coffee chain next month. The move comes after his vow to hire thousands refugees in response to President Donald Trump´s first travel ban appeared to hurt customer sentiment and dent their sales. Trump supporters have called for a boycott of the chain since January 29, when Schultz vowed to hire 10,000 refugees over five years. Schultz in a letter to employees said the promise of the American Dream was ´being called into question´ and that ´the civility and human rights we have all taken

Professor Hans Joachim Schellnhuber (shown) wants to take us back to the Stone Age — literally. In a March 15 interview with the German newspaper Deutsche Welle, the German physicist declared that global warming is so serious that not only must we all give up the use of coal and our internal combustion vehicles in the next 13 years, but we must also ditch concrete and steel — for “wood, clay and stone.” If we don’t do this, along with other drastic measures, we are headed toward planetary warming of “4, 5, 6 or even 12 degrees,” he claims.

BOULDER, Colo. — A new study by the University of Colorado Boulder spells out the suggestion that the first letter of your last name may determine your success in life. According to the study, which examines “alphabetism,” people with surnames beginning with a letter in the last half of the alphabet may face a tougher time academically, landing a first job and getting through life in general. The study, published last month, is not necessarily grounded in indisputable science. One of the lead researchers in the study said the results, however, were surprising. “Statistically, we were looking at two people

WASHINGTON – Billionaire entrepreneur and owner of the Dallas Mavericks Mark Cuban criticized the Congressional Budget Office’s use of a 10-year score to determine the effects of the Republican’s American Health Care Act and said the U.S. Constitution should be amended to make healthcare a right. Cuban compared the CBO’s use of a decade timeframe to the ABC television show Shark Tank, where he stars as one of the investors that hears pitches from business owners. He said one- to four-year timeframes are better but “marginally predictable.” “You’re not going to be able to predict anything,” Cuban said during a
