Trump´s Powerful Speech in Poland
Real Clear Politics, by Charles Lipson

Original Article

Posted By:garnet, 7/7/2017 8:43:44 AM

President Trump landed in Poland to an enthusiastic welcome, and he responded in kind. In the best statement yet of his foreign policy, Trump showed a clear-eyed recognition of the threats from Russia and radical Islam, promised continued U.S. engagement in Europe, offered to support Poland against Moscow, and wrapped it all in a full-throated defense of Western civilization and its achievements. It was everything the Poles had hoped for, and more. They remember, with a shudder, how President Obama tried to buy goodwill from the Russians in 2009 by reneging on the United States´ promise to Poland to install an

Donald Trump Jr.: Wingman, Attack Dog
Real Clear Politics, by Caitlin Huey-Burns    Original Article
Posted By: garnet- 7/7/2017 8:37:11     Post Reply
Unlike his sister and brother-in-law, Donald Trump Jr. does not have an official post inside his father´s White House. But the president´s eldest son is carving a role in the new administration as an attack dog against Democrats and the media. Trump Jr., 39, took the helm of the family business, along with his brother Eric, while their father is president. But he has not shied away from politics. Instead, he has become particularly active in the Republican Party, coordinating with the national committee, hosting fundraisers, campaigning for candidates. And he is prolific on social media, particularly Twitter, aggressively defending his

Uncovering the Russia ties of Hillary’s

Lawmakers failed to seize on an alarming development in the Russia collusion story last week, one that should spark serious and immediate congressional inquiry. But it didn’t involve President Trump or his administration.During a heated Fox Business interview with Maria Bartiromo, Hillary Clinton’s former campaign chief John Podesta made a series of misleading statements when questioned about his involvement in a company that received $35 million from the Russian government while Hillary served as secretary of state. On Jan. 18, 2011, a small green-energy company named Joule Unlimited announced Podesta’s appointment to its board. Months later, Rusnano, a Kremlin-backed investment fund founded

Back to the Center, Democrats
New York Times, by Mark Penn and Andrew Stein    Original Article

The path back to power for the Democratic Party today, as it was in the 1990s, is unquestionably to move to the center and reject the siren calls of the left, whose policies and ideas have weakened the party. In the early 1990s, the Democrats relied on identity politics, promoted equality of outcomes instead of equality of opportunity and looked to find a government solution for every problem. After years of leftward drift by the Democrats culminated in Republican control of the House under Speaker Newt Gingrich, President Bill Clinton moved the party back to the center in 1995 by supporting

Democrats, Beware the Single-Payer Siren

Democrats who are giddily munching popcorn while watching Republicans struggle with trying to repeal Obamacare may want to put down the tub. They are on the verge of adopting a politically analogous health care plank, one designed to rev up their ideological base in the next campaign, but destined to make the party suffer once in power. Last week, Elizabeth Warren, the Massachusetts senator and possible presidential aspirant, declared in a Wall Street Journal interview that after stymying repeal, the “next step” for Democrats should be “single-payer” -- a health insurance system with only one main insurer run by the federal

Progressive Journalists Are Outraged At The

Barely two weeks after a progressive Democrat activist attempted a mass assassination of Republican officials, progressives are outraged at the NRA for noting that the Second Amendment gives people the right to defend themselves, with arms if necessary, from people who might try to assassinate them or their families. You might not remember it because the news media pivoted away from the story as quickly as possible, but just two weeks ago an anti-Trump Bernie Bro tried to assassinate a bunch of elected Republican officials while they practiced for the annual bipartisan Congressional baseball game. Just days after the New York

The Maine-imum Wage
Investors Business Daily, by Editorial    Original Article
Posted By: garnet- 7/1/2017 10:19:19     Post Reply
In recent weeks, the news has been filled with cities and states rushing to raise their minimum wages and put more people out of work. Here´s something different: Maine just lowered its minimum for some workers. Sanity lives! The Washington Post reports that Maine´s House of Representatives voted to lower its minimum wage for restaurant workers who receive tips. Why? The state voted to phase-in an increase in the minimum wage over a number of years. Unfortunately, that voter-driven law also got rid of a part of the previous law that let restaurant employers count tips for up to half the

The GOP´s ´Better Care´ act

Posted By: garnet- 7/1/2017 10:14:36     Post Reply
There´s a lot to like about the Better Care Reconciliation Act, the health-care bill unveiled last week by Senate Republicans. As drafted, the proposal preserves the most worthy features of the Affordable Care Act while addressing some of its key flaws. This is, apparently, a controversial opinion. Many critics on the right (like Rand Paul and Americans for Prosperity) decry the plan as some watered-down ObamaCare lite. Many liberals, meanwhile, have reflexively tarred Better Care as an unmitigated evil being foisted upon America by heartless Republicans. Both sides are wrong. The Better Care act is better than you think. The Senate health-care bill is

The $15 disaster: Seattle’s grim
warning for NYC
New York Post, by Jillian Kay Melchior    Original Article
Posted By: garnet- 6/29/2017 9:18:22     Post Reply
The Fight for $15 has a history in New York — in 2012, hundreds of minimum-wage workers launched the movement by walking off their jobs to protest and demand a higher minimum wage. But if you want a glimpse of the future for the city, look at Seattle. A new study published by University of Washington economists found that, as conservatives long argued and as basic economics would seem to have predetermined, Seattle’s unprecedented minimum-wage hike actually hurt the very workers it sought to help.Specifically, the economists found, as businesses were forced to devote more of their revenue to payroll, they

Obamacare Is Killing People
American Spectator, by Jon Cassidy    Original Article
Posted By: garnet- 6/29/2017 8:59:42     Post Reply
So the Republicans are murdering tens of thousands of people with their Obamacare replacement, according to the headlines and tweets I keep seeing. I think they’ve got it backwards, though. It’s Obamacare that’s killing people, and just two classes of states are showing any immunity. Deaths from opiate overdoses are on the rise across the country, except in states that either legalized marijuana or declined Obamacare’s Medicaid expansion. At first, I thought these extravagant claims of murder and mayhem were the work of Bernie bros uninterested in policy or nuance. They’re obviously unserious, based on an old game called statistical murder, where

Economists Hilariously Over-Predicted
Economic Growth Under Obama
Daily Caller, by Tim Pearce    Original Article
Posted By: garnet- 6/28/2017 9:07:38     Post Reply
White house economists overestimated annual economic growth by about 80 percent on average for a six year stretch during Barack Obama’s presidency, according to Freedom Works economic consultant Stephen Moore. Economists predicted growth between 3.2 to 4.6 percent for the years 2010 through 2015. Actual economic growth never hit above 2.6 percent. “Why does anyone bother to listen to economists anymore?” Moore writes in The Washington Times. “Almost all of the economics profession … bought into the Keynesian idea that what would revive the economy after the Great Recession of 2008-09 was massive government spending ‘stimulus.’ The trillions of dollars of government

The Left Espouses Dangerously Stupid
Health-Care Rhetoric
National Review, by Jonah Goldberg    Original Article
Posted By: garnet- 6/28/2017 9:02:31     Post Reply
Even by Washington standards, this is a particularly dumb political moment. Earlier this month a political zealot went to a baseball practice intending to kill as many Republican congressmen as he could. As often happens after such horrible events, various politicians and media figures suggested that we should tone down the rhetoric and not paint everything in apocalyptic terms, casting Republicans or Democrats as villains with traitorous or evil intent in their hearts. Words have consequences, they sagely said into the TV cameras. Two weeks later, many of the very same people are describing Republicans as murderers for proposing changes

CNN correspondent Jim Acosta suggested President Trump´s press conference Thursday in Poland was a "fake news conference" because he called on a reporter who is an "ally of the White House." During the press conference, Trump chose Daily Mail reporter David Martosko, who has publicly said he spoke with Trump about a possible White House job, to ask a question. Martosko asked Trump about potential military action against North Korea and also about the fallout of the president´s tweet that included a video of him tackling a man with a CNN logo for a head.

When asked about President Donald Trump’s withdrawal from the Paris Climate Accord, Professor Stephen Hawking said that Trump’s decision could make the Earth “become like Venus, with a temperature of over 250 degrees and raining sulfuric acid.” He also said that Trump will cause “damage to our beautiful planet.” In a video published July 2, BBC News presented the question, “What does Stephen Hawking think about President Trump withdrawing from the Paris Climate Agreement?” Hawking answered, “We are close to the tipping point where global warming becomes irreversible.” “Trump’s action could push the earth over the brink to become like Venus, with a

When it does — if it hasn’t by the time you’ve finished reading this — it will become one of the largest icebergs on record. Scientists have been monitoring the crack in the ice shelf for two years, since they first observed that it was growing at a significant rate.

Former Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens criticized President Donald Trump’s public commentary on the travel ban litigation in an interview this week, and expressed skepticism about its legality. (Snip) He also expressed skepticism of the order’s legality. “Of course the Court has to consider the national security issues, but I don’t see the argument finding the danger to our security by allowing Muslims into the country,” he said. “It doesn’t seem to me that’s a very good test of how dangerous the immigrants are.” A 2015 study that appeared in the Wall Street Journal found that former President Barack Obama commented

Wednesday on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” network host Andrea Mitchell accused President Donald Trump of not reading, absorbing facts and was “not reality-based” when discussing his foreign policy moves. Partial transcript as follows: SCARBOROUGH: Andrea, you have talked before how Donald Trump thought he could personally charm the Chinese leaders, and we’ve seen this happen before throughout history. Famously FDR thought he could charm Stalin at Yalta. George W. Bush thought that he could charm Putin, talking about, you know, seeing into his soul, but Donald Trump, this has happened time and again, and he appears to be more susceptible to

Partial transcript as follows: GARRETT: Good morning. The president said Poland is an example of courage in the face of oppression. He specifically praised Poland’s historic, but ultimately unsuccessful, resistance to Nazi occupation and its persistent efforts throughout the Cold War to undermine Soviet dominance here and throughout Europe. In a speech, Mr. Trump also hailed Poland as one of the few NATO nations that annually

The Times’ and MSNBC’s insufferably smug and out-of-touch useful idiot said WarWarren Buffett has a wonderful line: “First come the innovators, then come the imitators, and then come the idiots.” “I think the conservative movement has traced a similar trajectory,” he said on MSNBC, adding that “the party of Donald Trump” is associated with “exclusion, fear, and bigotry.” Stephens whined that conservatives “demonize” and do not “admire” elites who are “educated” and

President Obama is engaged in acts that may go against the Logan Act which prohibits Americans from committing treason by acting with other governments against the US. A summary of the Logan Act follows: The Logan Act (18 U.S.C.A. § 953 [1948]) is a single federal statute making it a crime for a citizen to confer with foreign governments against the interests of the United States. Specifically, it prohibits citizens from negotiating with other nations on behalf of the United States without authorization. Congress established the Logan Act in 1799, less than one year after passage of the Alien and

In just about six months on the job, California Sen. Kamala Harris (D) has made a name for herself in the upper chamber. The junior senator was formerly California´s attorney general — which she is quick to point out, beginning much of her questioning in Senate hearings with the phrase, "I´m a prosecutor." Her relentless questioning has made Attorney General Jeff Sessions squirm, while earning her some reprimands from Senate colleagues for her lack of deference to witnesses. "She speaks. She´s heard," California Gov. Jerry Brown (D) told The New York Times for its profile of Harris, published Thursday. "She

A human-rights activist is speaking out this week about the anti-Muslim discrimination she says she experienced while shopping, when a sales associate insisting on making subtle jabs against her hijab. “Discrimination against Muslims, request for help,” Nadia Alawa, of Boston, wrote in a lengthy July 3rd Facebook post describing the recent incident. Earlier that day, she explained, she had been browsing at the White House Black Market, a popular women’s chain store, in Lynnfield, Mass. She was dressed, she says, “in my usual Muslim American clothing, which includes a hijab,” when a store manager approached her “with a smug smile”

While the rest of America was celebrating Independence Day, CNN kept digging its own grave. Furious over a silly video President Donald Trump posted Sunday, the flailing network sicced Senior Editor Andrew Kaczynski on its creator. He tracked down an anonymous Reddit user who first posted the GIF of Trump tackling a wrestler whose head was replaced with a CNN logo. Kaczynski then found out the person’s real name and threatened to release it if he misbehaved again: After posting his apology, “HanA**holeSolo” called CNN’s KFile and confirmed his identity. In the interview, “HanA**holeSolo” sounded nervous about his identity being revealed and
