Donald Trump budget blueprint
targets the do-nothings

Boston Herald, by Howie Carr

Original Article

Posted By:Pluperfect, 3/19/2017 5:37:29 AM

You know President Trump’s proposed federal budget is on target when you hear the wailing of the tax-fattened hyenas whose snouts might soon be forcibly extracted from the trough. “Expected cries of alarm,” the failing New York Times reported Friday, “came from scientists, human rights advocates, teachers, diplomats, artists and workers.” Oh no, not workers! Or should I say “workers.” Because I doubt many of the so-called workers moaning about Trump’s proposed cuts have been working these last few decades at anything other than feathering their own nests. Among the many things this budget does is call the bluff of the bloated, entrenched

Every Republicrat in Congress has "hacks" in her district, and none will cut one job there. It´s the hacks elsewhere that must go... Or at least be consolidated in MY district. No one wants a headline linking their name with "Jobs slashed".

True story. Several years ago, I was a volunteer coach at my children´s Catholic school. A new policy for the diocese was that all coaches had to attend a seminar about coaching and how to deal with children. The attendees numbered maybe 50 or so and was pretty evenly divided, men and women. The two men running the program spent most of the evening b!tch...complaining about President Reagan and his budget cuts because they had lost funding for their ´studies´. To top it off, most of their ´studies´ only focused on boys in sports, not girls and then all the attendees had to pay $5 to attend. I´m pretty sure the guys in charge didn´t give that money back to the taxpayers.

I am well pleased to see that enormous Federal Employees “telecommute,” and what a joke that is. Many telecommute 2 days a week for a 3-day workweek. This is a scandal.

Meant to say that enormous numbers of Federal employees "telecommute". Given their gold-plated pension plans this is a terrible injustice to those of US that work. I personally know 2 Federal telecommuters.

I think President Trump will put them back to work. November 2016 was such a wonderful moment for our country that I can hardly get over it. Thank you God!

A Few Questions for Trump´s
Most Loyal Supporters
Townhall, by Bernard Goldberg    Original Article
Posted By: Pluperfect- 4/18/2017 5:12:15     Post Reply
Generally speaking, there are two fundamental types of critiques of the controversial Donald Trump: the honest analytical kind and the partisan political-hack kind. It´s too bad so many of the president´s most loyal followers can´t tell the difference between the two. The other night, on Bill O´Reilly´s TV show, I said that I thought President Trump did the right thing in attacking Syria. I said, "I´m glad that he was moved by those images and did what he did." But I also said, "It´s important, I think, to point out that if you question what he did and you point out the

Wounded vets conquer Boston Marathon

Nearly twenty military veterans wounded in action in Iraq and Afghanistan tackled the Boston Marathon on Monday. The "Freedom Team," sponsored by Achilles International, trained the veterans and boasts bringing the largest field of disabled athletes to races like the Boston Marathon. Several team members are amputees and have lost limbs while serving. Boston´s world famous Marathon is not for the faint of heart, spanning 26.2-miles and includes "heart break hill" – located at mile 20 of the race. A local CBS reporter captured this incredible moment as a member of the Freedom Team carried his guide, holding an American Flag, across the

They were called Doolittle’s Raiders. It was a raid planned in retaliation for the attack on Pearl Harbor. It was an intrepid plan staffed with all brave volunteers on a one-way trip to bomb Tokyo and then try to bail out or crash land in China. The mission consisted of 16 modified B-25 bombers with nicknames like “Whiskey Pete,” “Ruptured Duck,” “Whirling Dervish,” “Hari-Kari-er,” “Fickle Finger,” and “The Avenger,” loaded onto the U.S. Navy’s aircraft carrier USS Hornet (CV-8) and headed deep into enemy territory in the Pacific. Their crews had never before taken off from a real aircraft carrier, just practicing

What Chicago really needs
New York Post, by Editorial    Original Article
Posted By: Pluperfect- 4/18/2017 4:37:46     Post Reply
Easter weekend was Chicago’s bloodiest since New Year’s, with 45 shootings, at least two of them fatal — a bad sign heading into the warmer months. The Windy City’s only consolation is that it’s doing better than last year: 915 shootings so far, vs. 955 in the same period in 2016. Homicides are also down, from 171 to 166. But the numbers are still higher than New York’s, though Chicago has about one-third the Big Apple’s population. And the NYPD continues to bring its own crime stats down, year after year — progress it’s continued to deliver (with occasional setbacks) ever since

Democrats are pumping millions into the Georgia congressional election set for Tuesday, hoping a 30-year-old political upstart who´s attracting star power can deliver a rebuke to President Trump and help the party reclaim lost momentum. Hollywood has even come out for the off-cycle vote, with actor Samuel L. Jackson cutting a radio ad urging voters to flip the seat once held by Republican Tom Price, who is now Trump´s health secretary. “Vote for the Democratic Party. Stop Donald Trump, a man who encourages racial and religious discrimination and sexism,” Jackson says in the ad, casting the race as a chance to undermine

The sordid case behind Jared Kushner´s

By all accounts, Jared Kushner, the husband of President Trump´s favorite daughter, has become an extraordinarily powerful man in the White House. To formally appoint Kushner a senior adviser, with a top security clearance, the president sought and received a Justice Department opinion declaring the White House exempt from federal anti-nepotism laws. That meant Kushner could have an official White House title to go along with his trusted-member-of-the-family influence.

The war for Trump’s ear

There’s an ominous rumble of war in Korea, there’s always an ominous rumble of war in the Middle East, but in Washington we’ve already got the real thing. The combatants are taking no prisoners and the rules of the Geneva Convention do not apply. This war is ugly, likely to be bloody and won’t ever end, because to the victor goes the ultimate turf and territory, the ear of the president. Donald Trump’s passion for making America great again is not something that easily translates into policy. He relies on advice from key aides, policymakers, a select group of outsiders, and his

Trump Should Stop Illegal
Obamacare Subsidies Now
American Spectator, by David Catron    Original Article
Posted By: Pluperfect- 4/17/2017 4:40:36     Post Reply
President Trump has an opportunity to unilaterally halt an unconstitutional corporate welfare scheme, deal Obamacare a mortal blow, and save the taxpayers more than $100 billion. U.S. District Judge Rosemary Collyer ruled last year that the Obama administration had unconstitutionally dispensed subsidies to insurers, holding that it had flouted the Appropriations Clause by doling out “cost sharing reduction” (CSR) payments that hadn’t been authorized by Congress. The Obama administration later filed an appeal but didn’t have time to pursue the case further. President Trump has the power and the duty to drop that appeal and stop these unconstitutional CSR payments

This Washington Post story about a journalism dispute between Bob Woodward and ghost writer Barbara Feinman Todd is of little interest qua dispute. However, it pertains to a remarkable story about which I had forgotten — Hillary Clinton’s imaginary conversations, during her time as First Lady, with Eleanor Roosevelt and Mahatma Gandhi. As far as I can tell, the matter was not raised or noted by the mainstream media during the 2016 presidential campaign. I didn’t mention it either, but would have had I remembered it.

Green Beret Mark de Alencar, 37, had a wife and five children. Freedom fighter Alencar, of blessed memory, died from combat wounds sustained in Nangarha Province in eastern Afghanistan. Five days later the U.S. dropped the so-called “mother of all bombs” on an ISIS underground complex in the province’s Anchin district. (More about this below.) The prior week this happened: two days after Syria’s Assad used chemical weapons, the United States bombed the operative base. To paraphrase the great sociologist Edward Banfield, low-class thugs like Assad require immediacy. And also: a few days after North Korea’s Kim Jong-un threatened the U.S. with

An Arkansas judge who barred the state from hurriedly executing eight inmates attended a death-penalty rally just hours later — even posing as a condemned man as part of the protest. Soon after Friday’s ruling, Judge Wendell Griffen attended the rally outside the Governor’s Mansion, where he lay tied to a cot as other protesters held anti-death- penalty signs behind him. Griffen’s participation in the rally sparked outrage among death-penalty supporters. Republican lawmakers condemned the display as judicial misconduct, and called for his removal from the bench.But Griffen, a circuit judge in Pulaski County, defended his participation. “We have never, in my knowledge, been

Why Donald Trump still

My question was short and simple: Do you still have confidence in Steve Bannon? President Trump’s answer was also short, but incredibly explosive. Although the military dropped the mother of all bombs in Afghanistan last week, the mother of all bombshells the president dropped is vastly more important to his presidency. As the political world knows, Trump declined to say yes to my question, creating a clear impression that his chief strategist is on thin ice. The “under the bus” notion surged on social media. The prospect of Bannon’s departure from the White House immediately set off frenzied reactions on two fronts. Anger

Donald J. Trump’s victory over Hillary Clinton in November came as a shock to the world. Polls, news reports and everything the Clinton campaign was hearing in the final days pointed to her becoming the first female president in American history. In their compelling new book, “Shattered,” the journalists Jonathan Allen and Amie Parnes write that Clinton’s loss suddenly made sense of all the reporting they had been doing for a year and a half — reporting that had turned up all sorts of “foreboding signs” that often seemed at odds, in real time, with indications that Clinton was the favorite

No President in American history has ever golfed more per week than Donald Trump. In his first 12 weeks in office Trump took a staggering 18 golf course trips. That´s unheard of. In his first 12 weeks in office, President Obama didn´t visit a single golf course. By the end of this year, it´s likely that Trump will have golfed more than President Obama has in his entire presidency. And that´s strange. It´s really strange. Because Donald Trump and other conservative pundits seemed to be deeply bothered by the times President Obama went out and golfed. It appeared to genuinely offend

Hillary Clinton phoned Barack Obama on election night after conceding defeat and told him: ‘I’m sorry’. The Democratic Presidential candidate stepped into an anteroom for the conversation to apologize for losing to Donald Trump in a conversation which has never previously been reported. As she took the call Clinton knew she had ‘let her country down’ and that Obama’s legacy lay ‘shattered at Donald Trump’s feet’, a new book reveals. Minutes earlier Clinton had called Trump and suppressed ‘the anger that touched every nerve in her body’ as she conceded. She said: ‘Congratulations, Donald. ‘I’ll be supportive of the country’s success and that means

Liberal filmmaker Michael Moore says he’s “on fire” creatively in his “Easter Dinner Reflections” Facebook post. Why?

He explains in his “Reflections”: “I think I need to make a movie. Or bring back my weekly series to TV. Or stand on a stage and howl. Or something. Or anything.

Dan Rather said on CNN’s Reliable Sources this morning that people are being too quick to praise Donald Trump as presidential for dropping bombs. The most notable example of this in the past two weeks was CNN’s own Fareed Zakaria saying that Trump “became president” in response to the Syria strike. Rather did not mention Zakaria specifically, but he did say, “Dropping bombs, having missile strikes, doesn’t make one presidential.” He said it’s way too early for that kind of rhetoric, because the question really is whether you can “keep the peace” afterwards.
