No to Puzder
National Review Online, by Editors

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 2/15/2017 11:21:03 AM

Andrew Puzder was from the start an odd choice to head Donald Trump’s Labor Department. The chief of CKE Restaurants, the parent company of fast-food chains such as Carl’s Jr. and Hardee’s, Puzder has long been one of corporate America’s most high-profile advocates of Gang of Eight-style “comprehensive immigration reform” — or, put another way, one of the most high-profile advocates of precisely the approach to immigration policy that Donald Trump opposed during his campaign. Of late, immigration-related labor policy has largely consisted of signing off on the measures American businesses use to undercut domestic workers — for example, of

Oh.
Now the NRO editors are Trump-police making sure every one of his cabinet walks in lock step w/ him?
Hard to believe they don´t have a different reason.
Some anti-Trump (or, Never-Trump) agenda.

I would like to make a suggestion to anyone with any influence who might read this. Stop criticizing or second guessing the Administration. We are at war with the other party. They will exploit any internal divisions within the Republicans or conservatives. Did any Democrat or left-leaning pundit or new organization ever--ever!--criticize anything Obama did? They may be back on their heels but they are united. We can´t afford to give them an inch.

My adult disabled son was hired by a local Hardee´s and worked there for several years. My impression was that Hardee´s central management set sensible parameters within which franchise operators were allowed flexibility. Great staff (mature mentoring), teamwork and, yes, diversity. Don´t know how much of this was due to Puzder´s leadership, but the work experience in such an environment was a plus for my son.

@#2 - I don´t think the Dems are ´back on their heels´ at all. In fact, if I didn´t know better, you´d think the Dems are still in control of Congress. Shumer is out front every day calling for investigations of everyone and everything Trump, while Pelosi continues to make a fool of herself with no consequences at all. Seems to me the Dems are setting the agenda and nothing can get done without their tacit approval. McConnell and Ryan are nowhere to be found other than to criticize Trump once a week. Trump has supposedly done more in 3 weeks than Obama did in 3 yrs, yet nothing has changed for the better - yet. We´ll see....

Be patient folks. The NR is hardly in a position to dictate to Mr. Trump. Soon the Obama holdovers will be gone from the WH. Ignore the msm, and the anti-Trump echo chambers.

Puzder is the right man for Labor. In fact, he´s perfect. With all the screaming from the left, Mr. Puzder has actually been a champion for labor for decades.

If NRO had not come out so strongly and viciously anti-Trump during the campaign and even AFTER Trump won the nomination I might pay some attention to them now. But no.

Fox News Will Replace Bill
O’Reilly With Tucker Carlson
Variety, by Brian Steinberg    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 4/19/2017 3:04:22     Post Reply
In the wake of Bill O’Reilly’s ouster, Fox News Channel issued a talking points memo of its own: Its primetime lineup will maintain a similar tone and attitude even without the person who was arguably the network’s most recognizable anchor. Tucker Carlson, who has held forth in primetime at 9 p.m. and delivered solid ratings, will move to O’Reilly’s 8 p.m. slot starting Monday, April 24. Fox News will fill Carlson’s former berth with its panel show, “The Five,” while keeping Sean Hannity at 10 p.m. More to come…

Filmmaker Jay Thames was six years old when his grandfather first told him about the Texas City disaster. He was too young to completely grasp the magnitude of the event, but he’d never seen his grandfather Jesse, a World War II veteran and local businessman, get so emotional. In many ways, Thames has been turning that story into a script ever since, drawing out the details from Jesse little by little. Years of this research will finally come together in Thames’s upcoming film, Texas City. The morning of April 16, 1947, the S.S. Grandcamp was docked in Texas City when a

Energy Secretary Rick Perry ordered a study Friday examining to what extent solar and wind power are hurting what the Trump administration considers reliable forms of coal power. Perry, a Texas Republican who served as governor of an energy-rich state, wants the Energy Department to undergo a 60-day review of the energy grid to determine if green energy subsidies are hurting more reliable forms of energy like natural gas and coal. “We are blessed as a nation to have an abundance of domestic energy resources, such as coal, natural gas,” Perry wrote in a memo to his chief of staff,

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes has been in the news recently because a source in the intelligence community informed him that Obama National Security Adviser Susan Rice was behind the "unmasking" of Trump campaign associates in intelligence reports, which may have led to other members of the intelligence community leaking classified information to the press for partisan political reasons. Nunes has been criticized for the way he handled and presented this information—not without reason—as he rushed to the press with it before handing it over to the rest of the intelligence committee. As a result, Nunes has recused himself

White House Senior Adviser Jared Kushner is leading an unprecedented effort to meddle in the White House´s National Security Council, causing mayhem for senior staff who say the president´s son-in-law is interfering in key foreign policy debates, according to Trump administration officials who spoke to the Washington Free Beacon. Kushner has taken aggressive action to micro-manage the NSC, overshadowing even recently installed National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster, according to sources both inside and outside the White House who described Kushner´s behavior as highly unusual and damaging to the country´s national security infrastructure. Never before has a White House permitted such a figure

Dallas´ "Mega March" An Enthusiastic Bust

The last time Dallas´ Latino leadership organized a march of this intended scale, in 2006, attendance was estimated at somewhere between 400,000 and 500,000. This time, even before the march, organizers guessed attendance might be 100,000. On Sunday, they claimed after the event that 20,000 people showed up to march through downtown Dallas to Dallas City Hall for rights and respect for Dallas´ immigrant and refugee population. After the march, Dallas police estimated 3,200 people marched and attended the subsequent rally. The differences between Mega March 2006 and Sunday´s edition didn´t just include the number of participants. A decade ago, marchers were

It started off as a Texas version of the Sharks versus the Jets. In 2013, the Bandidos, the oldest, biggest, and most-feared outlaw motorcycle club in the state, learned that members of the Cossacks, a rapidly growing rival club, had begun wearing patches on the backs of their vests that read “Texas” in capital letters. For decades, the Bandidos had decreed that the Texas “bottom rocker” patch belonged only to them. If another club wanted to wear the patch, it would have to receive permission from the Bandidos and pay them dues. But the Cossacks contended that the Bandidos had

Washington-The Senate Friday morning confirmed Neil Gorsuch, a 49-year-old federal judge who could help cement a conservative majority on the bench for decades, to the Supreme Court, according to a CNN count of the vote. The vote was 54-45, mostly along party lines. Only three Democrats: Sens. Joe Manchin, Heidi Heitkamp and Joe Donnelly, sided with the GOP majority. Vice President Mike Pence presided over the vote, but was not needed to break a tie. The court has been operating with eight justices since the sudden death in February 2016 of Justice Antonin Scalia and a protracted fight over President Barack Obama´s

Embattled White House strategist Steve Bannon vowed he wasn’t going quietly into the night after being purged from the National Security Council — declaring “I love a gunfight,” it was reported Thursday. Bannon, a fervent nationalist and presidential adviser made the combative remark to pals within the past 24 hours, the political website Axios reported. A cascade of White House leaks said Bannon was tired of the constant infighting among the various factions vying for Trump’s attention and support and was ready to hang it up. But Bannon — and one of the masterminds of Trump’s campaign — called those rumors “100 percent

In a world of instant gratification that too often rewards boastful rhetoric over definitive accomplishments, Mitch McConnell stands out for his patience. The Senate majority leader expends political capital with ruthless efficiency, using it only when it can accomplish precisely what he intends. McConnell doesn’t start many fights; he finishes them. As the Senate moves toward confirmation of Neil Gorsuch, President Donald Trump’s nominee for the Supreme Court, that is exactly what is happening: McConnell is ending a fight that a young senator named Chuck Schumer started nearly 15 years ago by rallying the first-ever

Gun Sales Have Fallen
Since Obama Left Office
Daily Caller, by Will Racke    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 4/3/2017 9:51:10     Post Reply
The gun industry may be headed for a slump after eight years of explosive growth under former President Barack Obama. From December through February, the number of federal background checks conducted each month declined from the same month a year ago, according to the Associated Press. While not an exact measure of total firearm sales, background checks are considered a key measure of how gun manufacturers are performing. One reason for the softening demand, some gun industry experts say, is that potential gun buyers are no longer worried Washington will issue new regulations restricting gun sales.

Out here in flyover country, we recently had some fires that devastated parts of Kansas, Colorado, Oklahoma, and Texas. You may not have heard about them, because no movie stars’ houses were destroyed - just those of hard working farmers and ranchers who work tirelessly every day to put food on your table. The fires ravished nearly everything in their paths over an area of 1300 square miles in Oklahoma and Kansas alone. That’s a land mass 100 square miles more than the size of Rhode Island. For those of you who’ve never been to Rhode Island, imagine a swath

Fox News host Bill O’Reilly is out of his job, according to a statement from the cable channel’s corporate parent Wednesday. The host of the top-rated cable TV news show, “The O’Reilly Factor,” was let go amid allegations of sexual harassment and other inappropriate behavior, sources said. “After a thorough and careful review of allegations against him, the Company and Bill O’Reilly have agreed that Mr. O’Reilly will not return to the Fox News Channel,” said a statement from 21st Century Fox Executive Chairman Rupert Murdoch and his sons, Lachlan and James Murdoch. “This decision follows an extensive review done in

The Murdochs have decided Bill O’Reilly’s 21-year run at Fox News will come to an end. According to sources briefed on the discussions, network executives are preparing to announce O’Reilly’s departure before he returns from an Italian vacation on April 24. Now the big questions are how the exit will look and who will replace him. Wednesday morning, according to sources, executives are holding emergency meetings to discuss how they can sever the relationship with the country’s highest-rated cable-news host without causing collateral damage to the network. The board of Fox News’ parent company, 21st Century Fox, is scheduled to

When Bill O’Reilly left for vacation on April 11, he stressed that the break was pre-planned to counter the notion that it had something to do with with the New York Times’ revelation that five women were paid $13 million to settle harassment claims against him. A week later, it looks increasingly unlikely that he’ll ever return to his show. New York’s Gabriel Sherman reported on Tuesday afternoon that “the Murdochs are leaning toward announcing that O’Reilly will not return to the air,” according to three sources. Later that evening multiple outlets said support for O’Reilly is eroding within Fox News.

Chelsea Clinton likes cheddar cheese and Twitter and hates that America can’t come to grips with what the Clinton Foundation actually does. Oh, and her mother lost because voters are sexist. Speaking to Variety magazine (she graces the cover in a white t-shirt, motorcycle jacket and a lot of Photoshop work), Clinton says she’s definitely not interested in running for office, but if she were, she’d have to contend with American voters who stubbornly refuse to acknowledge exactly how much she and her family have contributed to their lives.

An article in the Guardian last week provides more confirmation that John Brennan was the American progenitor of political espionage aimed at defeating Donald Trump. One side did collude with foreign powers to tip the election — Hillary’s. Seeking to retain his position as CIA director under Hillary, Brennan teamed up with British spies and Estonian spies to cripple Trump’s candidacy. He used their phony intelligence as a pretext for a multi-agency investigation into Trump, which led the FBI to probe a computer server connected to Trump Tower and gave cover to Susan Rice, among other Hillary supporters, to spy on

The knives are out in Hillary Clinton’s camp about who leaked embarrassing information to the authors of a bombshell new book about her “doomed presidential campaign.” There is a witch hunt underway among Clinton’s presidential campaign staffers after the release of the autopsy book, “Shattered: Inside Hillary Clinton’s Doomed Campaign” by journalists Jonathan Allen and Amie Parnes. We’re told the details in the book, which depicts the campaign as inept, “could only have come from someone in the inner circle.” Dennis Cheng, the finance director of Clinton’s presidential campaign, has been sending out messages to determine where the leaks come from.

(Snip) She added that xenophobia played a big part in Trump’s election campaign. “He got that people are deeply angry,” she said. “People are right to be angry, but Donald Trump said it’s their fault—those other people.

Legendary musician Bruce Springsteen and singer/songwriter Joe Grushecky released a new song, "That´s What Makes Us Great," to protest President Trump. Grushecky wrote the anthem just as Trump was being sworn in as president in January. "I had this song, and Bruce and I had been talking," Grushecky told the Pittsburg Post-Gazette in an interview. "I sent it to him and he liked it. I said, ´What do you think about singing on it?´ He gave it the Bruce treatment." "Don´t tell me a lie / and sell it as a fact / I´ve been down that road before /

Asked Thursday by Texas Tribune CEO Evan Smith if there are enough winnable districts for Democrats, Pelosi replied, “Yes, indeed.” She said there are more than 40 seats held by the GOP that are considered more favorable to Democrats than the suburban Atlanta district where Democrat Jon Ossoff came within 3 points of winning an all-party primary on Tuesday. Georgia´s 6th Congressional District, which became vacant after former Rep. Tom Price became Secretary of Health and Human Services, has been held by the GOP
