On His Way Out, Obama Moves To
Make National Elections Less Secure

Investor´s Business Daily, by Staff

Voting: In yet another move by the Obama administration to stick its thumb in the nation´s eye on the way out, it has decided to have the federal government meddle in state and local elections. It´s yet another terrible decision that Donald Trump is going to have to undo. With almost no notice, Homeland Security chief Jeh Johnson announced that his department was designating the nation´s elections system as "critical infrastructure," thereby giving DHS greater control over how states run their own elections. This is a classic example of a government solution in search of a problem, one that will itself end

This is scary news.

As Trump can easily undo Obama´s new ´regulation,´ why do it at all?

Is ´The Won´ laying a foundation, then declaring Martial Law and staying, indefinately???

Thus the never ending meme about Russian hacking. This was Obama´s real plan all along.
Watch what Obama does to the US before he steps out.
Obama hates America and his evil intent is shown every day. His exit can´t come soon enough for me.

He knows it will be undone. imo he just wants the headline, so to delegitimize Trump and slap Russia.

We won, Trump will undo all damage that Obama created. This is just one more box that needs to be checked.

The hacking meme is as much a product of the right as the left. Currently it suits the left´s purpose. (The right, as one may recall, fretted over Soros and the manufacture of these machines, their proven insecurity, etc.)

Thank you G.W. Bush for establishing DHS and setting the stage for this sort of tyranny. Who ever saw it coming?

This out of control narcissistic freak ought to be behind bars. What a sick administration! His fellow brethren so uninformed and it appears permanently stupid that they want him another 4 years!!!!!!! Mental illness passed on from one generation to the next, it appears!

True enough, there is a risk. But moving elections under federal control could end the multiple state failure to undermine elections by allowing non-citizens to vote.

By Taking Down DeVos, Unions And
Democrats Hope To Kill School Reform
Investor´s Business Daily, by Staff    Original Article

Education: Democrats and unions are joining to kill any prospect of meaningful education reform by President-elect Donald Trump. How? By fatally damaging school reformer Betsy DeVos´ nomination as Secretary of Education. DeVos is unquestionably qualified to head the Education Department. She has spent most of her adult life as an enthusiastic and thoughtful school reformer, fighting the teachers unions and their bought-and-paid-for Democratic political pals, to bring hope and educational change to the state of Illinois´ dysfunctional schools. What irks unions and Democrats alike is that DeVos is an unabashed advocate of school choice, which mostly means charter schools and voucher programs.

Obama: Don´t Blame Me
For The Democrats Demise

At one point in President Obama´s interview with ABC News that aired over the weekend, George Stephanopoulos noted that "the Democratic Party got pretty hollowed out on your watch, about 1,000 seats lost in the Congress, Senate, governors, state houses." Then he asked: "Is that on you?" It was a good question. Since Obama took office, Democrats´ fortunes have plummeted. The party lost 900 seats in state legislatures, 12 governorships, 69 House seats and 13 Senate seats. Clearly, whatever leadership Obama provided, it wasn´t helping Democrats connect with voters across the country. So what was Obama´s response? At first, he

Sears, Other Retailers Reel From
Gales Of ´Creative Destruction´
Investor´s Business Daily, by Terry Jones    Original Article

Sears. Macy´s. Kohl´s. Traditional department store retailers have taken hard hits over the Christmas holidays, with sales lagging the generally robust performance of retailers overall. Now, these mall stalwarts are slashing thousands of jobs and hundreds of stores, trying to right-size themselves. It´s no coincidence. Sears on Thursday became the latest retailer to announce that it was restructuring after a weak Christmas season. It´s closing 150 Sears and Kmart stores and selling its iconic Craftsman tool brand for just under a billion dollars to Stanley Black & Decker. Meanwhile, Macy´s is letting 10,000 people go. And Kohl´s warned about its decline

Another ObamaCare Promise Bites The Dust

Health Reform: Remember when Democrats were promising that ObamaCare would cut the deficit by $1 trillion in its second decade? Turns out they were off by, well, about $1 trillion. A report from the centrist Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget says that, left in place, ObamaCare would reduce the deficit by between $350 billion and $150 billion over the next 10 years, depending on whether or not you account for the economic harm caused by the law. It might look like a big number, but it´s far smaller than the $1 trillion Democrats promised. What´s more, a realistic accounting shows that

The Washington Post Needs To Come Clean
About Its Russian Hacking Story Fiasco

When a company fails at its basic mission in a way that harms the public, and then tries to mislead the public about it, newspaper reporters can be counted on to immediately swoop in and demand that the company be held to account. So what happens when the company in question is a major, highly influential newspaper? Let´s see. On Friday, the Washington Post published an earth-shattering report that Russian hackers had infiltrated the U.S. electricity grid through a Vermont utility. The story´s lede said that a "code associated with the Russian hacking operation dubbed Grizzly Steppe by the Obama administration has been

Economy-Destroying Regulatory Siege

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

Barbra Streisand blasts Donald Trump:

Barbra Streisand is standing with Meryl Streep, who used her acceptance speech at Sunday´s Golden Globe Awards to criticize Donald Trump for lacking empathy and infamously mocking a disabled reporter in 2015. A day after Streep delivered her blistering rebuke of the president-elect, Streisand called in to Hardball With Chris Matthews and expressed her solidarity. I thought that [Streep] said what she said beautifully, Streisand remarked. Regarding Trump´s ridiculing of journalist Serge F. Kovaleski 14 months ago, Streisand added, I completely agree with Meryl. It was a heartbreaking moment and so beneath the dignity of the presidency, let alone any respectful person.

Michael Eric Dyson Calls for
Whites to Have an I.R.A. –
‘Individual Reparations Account’

Professor Michael Eric Dyson thinks that white people should have an ‘Individual Reparations Account’ to make donations to black institutions and individuals. (Snip) I agree with reparations, but maybe this is my white privilege speaking: I can’t imagine actually doing that. That is what I meant by an I.R.A.: an individual reparations account. You ain’t got to ask the government, you don’t have to ask your local politician — this is what you, an individual, conscientious, “woke” citizen can do. But charity can’t be the end of it, right? The Koch brothers gave the United Negro College Fund $25 million, but I

Senator John McCain passed documents to the FBI director, James Comey, last month alleging secret contacts between the Trump campaign and Moscow and that Russian intelligence had personally compromising material on the president-elect himself. The material, which has been seen by the Guardian, is a series of reports on Trump’s relationship with Moscow. They were drawn up by a former western counter-intelligence official, now working as a private consultant. BuzzFeed on Tuesday published the documents, which it said were “unverified and potentially unverifiable”.

The Gold Star father who blasted Donald Trump at the Democratic convention this summer is returning to the national stage this week, firing off a letter demanding the Senate reject Sen. Jeff Sessions, Mr. Trump’s attorney general nominee. Khizr Khan, the Pakistan-born father of a U.S. Army captain killed in the Iraq war, said his son’s service was a rejection of people like Mr. Sessions, who he accused of associating with racially divisive and ‘intensely anti-Muslim” groups. Mr. Khan also said Mr. Sessions has defended proposals “that would single Muslim immigrants out for discriminatory treatment on the basis of their religious beliefs.” “My

Hillary Clinton’s political career is probably over, but just because she lost the presidential election to Donald Trump doesn’t mean she wasn’t prepared to win. Axios reporter Mike Allen has revealed Hillary’s list of prospective nominees for important cabinet posts in her administration, and it includes a number of interesting choices. John Podesta, her campaign chairman who accidentally exposed his entire email account to Russian hackers, was listed as the frontrunner to be Hillary Clinton’s secretary of state. Vice President Joe Biden was reportedly also being considered for the position. Facebook executive and Lean In author Sheryl Sandberg was in

The saga over alleged Russian interference in the U.S. elections took another sinister turn Tuesday, as it was revealed that U.S. intelligence officials provided President-elect Donald Trump with a charge that the Russians had obtained dirt on him. U.S. officials included a two-page synopsis of ´kompromat´ – Russian for compromising material – as part of their security briefing of Trump on Friday. The material was based on memos compiled by a British intelligence operative who was considered ´credible´ by the U.S. intelligence community, CNN reported. What is believed to be the document itself was published by Buzzfeed, which pointed out

   

 



 
Buzzfeed’s Trump report takes

So the website BuzzFeed decided to publish a series of memos that have been floating around for months alleging all kinds of terrible things about Donald Trump. Some of those terrible allegations have to do with efforts to influence the American elections and Trump. Some of them have to do with Trump’s personal sexual conduct. Readers of this newspaper know well not to include me among Trump’s supporters. But the scurrilousness of what BuzzFeed has done here is so beyond the bounds of what is even remotely acceptable it should compel even those most outraged by Trump’s political excesses to come to
