CRAwling from the Obamanation
we just suffered

Donsurber.com, by Don Surber

Original Article

Posted By:earlybird, 2/17/2017 11:00:34 AM

After suffering decades of liberal bureaucrats re-writing laws without congressional oversight, Republicans had enough and in 1996 passed the Congressional Review Act to override the bureaucracy. This worked only once in 20 years when President Bush 43 signed off on repealing a Clinton era requirement for workplace ergonomics (then the big fad among the latte liberals). Trump already signed off on two -- a Dodd-Frank rule and an EPA coal-mining rule, neither of which help anyone but are costly nevertheless. That´s not all. From the Daily Caller: The Trump administration withdrew 24 economically significant rules –those costing more than $100 million — in his

CPAC sponsor chair praises ´brave’
Yiannopoulos but concedes he
crossed boundaries
Politico, by Louis Nelson    Original Article
Posted By: earlybird- 2/21/2017 10:26:26     Post Reply
The chairman of the American Conservative Union, host of the annual Conservative Political Action Conference, said Tuesday morning that provocative Breitbart editor Milo Yiannopoulos has taken a “brave” stance against the “chilling of free speech on campus,” but crossed "boundaries" with his apparent endorsement of predatory sexual relationships. Yiannopoulos´ invitation to address CPAC was rescinded over the weekend when video emerged on which Yiannopoulos can be heard condoning pedophilia. The Breitbart editor has since backed away from those comments, blaming the uproar in part on deceptive editing and “my usual blend of British sarcasm, provocation and gallows humor.” That explanation proved unsatisfying

Dallas Doctor Gets Life In
Prison for Maiming Patients
Dallas Observer, by Stephen Young    Original Article

Christopher Duntsch, the Dallas doctor convicted last week of paralyzing an elderly patient during a botched 2012 surgery, is going to prison for life. A Dallas County jury took a little more than an hour to sentence him Monday afternoon.Duntsch, 45, was stripped of his medical license in 2013 following a series of surgeries that ended with two patients dead, four crippled and several others with surgical waste sewn up inside of them. In 2015, Dallas police arrested the Duntsch on five aggravated assault charges, but he ended up only being tried for injuring Mary Efurd, who was left in

The Washington Post has an op-ed today from someone who purports to have resigned from the CIA because his sensibilities can’t stomach working for a Trump administration. The clown in question is Edward Price worked at the CIA from 2006 until this month, most recently as the spokesman for the National Security Council. He goes on about how working for the CIA was his boyhood ambition but now, after 15 years of service, he has tossed it all away: (Snip)Keep in mind that this guy was on the NSC when a virtual Iranian agent named Ben Rhodes was its deputy

Democrats worried about state
Senate race -- in Delaware

Republicans have not controlled the state Senate in Delaware in 40 years as the Blue Hen State is that blue. But Democrats are very worried about losing the state Senate next Saturday in a special election for a seat that will, incredibly, determine whether Republicans finally flip that state´s state Senate. They are panicked. Joe Biden has joined the race, as has former Governor Martin O´Malley of neighboring Maryland. The seat is up because Delaware elected Democrat Bethany Hall-Long as lieutenant governor last November. Hillary carried the state by 11 points but Democrats lost a state Senate seat giving Republicans their best showing

The Department of Homeland Security is set to release guidance on President Donald Trump’s immigration and border security executive orders that has sweeping implications for undocumented immigrants in the United States and those seeking to enter in the future. The memos from Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly to agency chiefs, obtained by CNN, are the first step to putting Trump’s aggressive immigration policies in place, with provisions that could make substantial changes to how immigration laws are enforced. The guidance will tighten immigration laws on asylum seekers and unaccompanied minors entering the country and could send individuals awaiting immigration proceedings

Sweden ´covering up´ migrant
rape and violent crime for

Express [UK], by Oli Smith    Original Article
Posted By: earlybird- 2/19/2017 5:43:04     Post Reply
Journalist Ami Horowitz told Fox News people high up in the Swedish government are purposely covering up the prepretrators of rape crimes to protect "vulnerable" migrants. During an explosive interview on Friday, Mr Horowitz claimed the refugee violence crisis was out-of-control but that "European virtues" had put a stop to any discussion on the statistics. His claims sparked Donald Trump to tell a rally in Florida that migration in Europe was out of control. Sweden accepted 160,000 asylum-seekers last year, with Fox News claiming only 500 have managed to gain employment - 0.3 per cent of those who arrived to

The silver lining for ousted National Security Adviser Michael Flynn is that now he’ll have time to write a book. Rugged Land publisher Webster Stone — who came up with the idea for “Rogue Warrior,” which revealed the existence of SEAL Team Six — plans to meet with Flynn in Washington, DC, with the hopes of convincing Flynn to write a memoir for his publishing house about the campaign and his brief stint on the Trump team. “Gen. Flynn will be sought-after,” Stone told me. “I expect to pay high-six to seven figures, because we’re talking about someone who not

The Barack Obama Presidential Center in Chicago could require a $1.5 billion endowment, its architects say, three times what was raised for the George W. Bush Presidential Center in Dallas. Husband-and-wife architectural team Tod Williams and Billie Tsien noted that it will be difficult to raise such a huge sum because Obama scrupulously declined to do much fund-raising while he was still in office. The Obama Center is due to be so expensive because it will require the construction of both a presidential library and a museum about the lives of Barack and Michelle Obama. And federal requirements now stipulate that former

Scott Pruitt´s Game-Changing Call
for Debate on Climate Science
PJ Media, by Tom Harris    Original Article
Posted By: earlybird- 2/19/2017 3:31:47     Post Reply
In light of charges by a former National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration scientist that agency researchers are manipulating data to support climate alarmism, Scott Pruitt -- President Donald Trump’s nominee to head the Environmental Protection Agency -- is right to call for open debate on the science. At stake are trillions of dollars, countless jobs, and, if the climate scare is justified, the fate of the global environment. The public needs to have confidence that this is not just a politically convenient crusade devoid of solid scientific support. Last week, former NOAA scientist Dr. John Bates publicly announced his concerns that an

Officials in Texas acknowledge that hundreds of people were able to bypass voter ID laws and improperly cast ballots in the presidential election. Voters were able to sign a sworn statement instead of showing ID. The chief election officers in two of Texas´ largest counties are considering whether to refer cases to prosecutors for possible charges. Officials in many other areas say they will let the mistakes go, adding that there was widespread confusion among workers and voters. The law requires voters to show one of seven approved forms of identification. The affidavit process was adopted after an appeals court ruled that the voter ID

Marjorie Merriweather Post had Mar-a-Lago constructed in Palm Beach in the 1920s as a magnificent mansion, which she bequeathed to the U.S. government to serve as a winter retreat for the president. After all, Jack Kennedy spent many a weekend at the Kennedy mansion in Palm Beach during his sadly brief presidency. But Carter nixed that, and gave the mansion back. Donald Trump bought it and now -- lo and behold -- it is a retreat for the president. NPR does not like that. Not one bit. Why, The Donald is holding up traffic in the tony resort town.

Self-love used to be a vice, but nowadays it is the nearest thing to a virtue, as a supposed precondition of our own mental health (whatever that might be). An Irish friend kindly forwarded me an article from The Irish Times reporting on a school in County Dublin that, on St. Valentine’s Day, encouraged children to write Valentine cards to themselves. They were supposed to inscribe in them what they loved about themselves, on the theory that self-love is a precondition to success, happiness, and resilience, and should therefore be taught early and probably incessantly. My view is that the head teacher

An “antiracist” poster in a college writing center insists American grammar is “racist” and an “unjust language structure,” promising to prioritize rhetoric over “grammatical ‘correctness.´” The poster, written by the director, staff, and tutors of the University of Washington, Tacoma’s Writing Center, states “racism is the normal condition of things,” declaring that it permeates rules, systems, expectations, in courses, school and society. “Linguistic and writing research has shown clearly for many decades that there is no inherent ‘standard’ of English,” proclaims the writing center’s statement.

Nearly 15 years ago, I informed my skeptical father that I was pursuing a job with the Central Intelligence Agency. Among his many concerns was that others would never believe I had resigned from the agency when I sought my next job. “Once CIA, always CIA,” he said. But that didn’t give me pause. This wouldn’t be just my first real job, I thought then; it would be my career. That changed when I formally resigned last week. Despite working proudly for Republican and Democratic presidents, I reluctantly concluded that I cannot in good faith serve this administration as an

Calls to boycott Wegmans Food Markets, a popular supermarket chain, because it sells Trump Winery products have backfired on the Prince William County, Virginia, chapter of the National Organization for Women. A spokeswoman for Wegmans, a New York-based company, told Fox News on Monday that Trump wines flew off its shelves last week. Out of 10 locations, only its Charlottesville store did not completely sell out. (Snip) Calls for boycotts began with a story involving Prince William County’s chapter of NOW in The Washington Post published Feb. 14. “Certainly if Wegmans is carrying Trump wines, I personally will not shop

Leftists on social media tore into First Lady Melania Trump, mocking her accent and religion and branding her everything from a hostage to a whore – all for the secular offense of reciting “The Lord’s Prayer.” Melania Trump began President Trump’s rally Saturday in Florida by delivering the prayer, which Christians – many of whom recite the prayer in church each week – believe was first said by Jesus Christ. The crowd at Orlando-Melbourne Airport received the prayer enthusiastically. Left-leaning social media users were a different story, however.

Protest leaders say they expect thousands to take to the streets in Los Angeles, Chicago, New York and as many as two dozen other communities in the latest round of demonstrations to oppose the policies of President Donald Trump.  Some 13,000 Facebook users, for instance, say they plan to join a noon protest Monday near Manhattan’s Central Park.

ABC’s Jon Karl, filling in for George Stephanopoulos on This Week today, ended the program this morning with a few thoughts on President Trump‘s tweet calling the media the “enemy.” He first provided important context by saying there’s “nothing new” about presidents attacking the press, recalling what Thomas Jefferson and Teddy Roosevelt said about reporters while they were in office. As for Trump himself, Karl said that many years ago, the New York mogul was “nothing but media-friendly” and during the campaign “he was the most accessible major candidate.” But he ended with this serious note about the president’s media

The governor of Connecticut is attempting to tap gun owners to help close the state´s $1.7 billion budget deficit. Gov. Dannel Malloy, a Democrat, has proposed increases to pistol permit fees. The five-year renewal fee for pistol permits would increase from $70 to $300, first-time five-year permits would increase from $140 to $370 and fees for background checks would increase from $50 to $75. The plan is expected to raise nearly $12 million per year in additional revenue, CBS News and The Associated Press reported. Gun-rights supporters and state Republican lawmakers said this increase would preclude many people from exercising

African Americans have run the White House kitchen as chefs, personal cooks, butlers, stewards and servers for every First Family for nearly one hundred and fifty years beginning with George Washington´s presidential term in the late 1700s. It was the black kitchen chefs and cooks who prepared the superb comfort food for the First Family and dazzled presidential guests with their cooking. Nearly every distinguished family in Washington had black servants, butlers and cooks in the 19th and early 20th centuries. Presidential families were no exception and there have been no less than 150 African Americans on the president´s culinary

The Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), organized by the American Conservative Union, is regularly the most anticipated event on the conservative calendar. Although it has become increasingly circus-like in recent years, it remains the year’s foremost gathering of conservative activists, several days of speakers normally include leading officeholders, and it is considered a testing ground for prospective presidential candidates. Over the weekend, CPAC invited Milo Yiannopoulos to speak at this year’s event, happening later this week in Maryland. Of late, Yiannopoulos, a “tech editor” for Breitbart News, has been a regular guest on college campuses and a constant source of

Senator John McCain poured it on for the press at a Munich defense conference Saturday, warning in a veiled attack on President Trump that attacks on the press are a leading danger for democracy. “That´s how dictators are made!” he shrieked. It was rich stuff, given that most of his European listeners do not have the same wide press freedoms found in the states. But more to the point, it was McCain up to his old tricks: Ingratiating himself to the anti-Trump press by playing its champion, in a bid to be the media´s darling. What stands out here is the
