‘Deregulation Day’ Spotlights Big Changes
Trump Is Bringing to Washington

Daily Signal, by Diane Katz

Original Article

Posted By:Judy W., 10/2/2017 6:29:00 AM

Monday is “Deregulation Day” for the federal government as declared by President Donald Trump, and thus is an opportune time to deliver the findings of The Heritage Foundation’s latest tracking of regulation. The bad news is that the final year of the Obama administration brought the private-sector costs of its reign of regulatory excess to $122 billion a year. And that’s the low-ball figure. On the other hand, the Trump administration, in its first six months, launched a multifaceted reform agenda that has slowed regulatory output. Some rules have been blocked and others rescinded, along with the withdrawal of hundreds of other

George Washington´s Solution
for Sexual Harassment
Town Hall, by Star Parker    Original Article
Posted By: Judy W.- 11/29/2017 12:04:03     Post Reply
The avalanche of sexual harassment claims, with new ones pouring forth daily, leads me to the wisdom of George Washington´s observation in his farewell address in 1796: "Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. ... And let us with caution indulge the supposition that morality can be managed without religion." You may say, "There you go again, Star. Waving your Bible." But is there a better answer for dealing with this problem? Society, all human life, is guided by rules. The only question before us is: What are the rules that we choose to

Sen. Tom Cotton: Here’s How to End
Democrats’ Obstruction of Trump’s Nominees
Daily Signal, by Casey Ryan    Original Article

Sen. Tom Cotton, R-Ark., says Democrats have forced the Senate into 47 cloture votes this year alone on President Donald Trump’s judicial nominees, compared with just six cloture votes in the first years of the four prior administrations combined. Cotton said Senate Democrats are abusing procedures that allow them to stymie Trump’s executive branch nominees. He said that allows career bureaucrats to run their agencies anyway they want, “without any political accountability.” The freshman Arkansas senator leveled the charge in remarks to the Federalist Society, a conservative legal group, on Nov. 16 in Washington. Cotton said it’s time for those abuses to end,

Why George Washington Thought the
Practice of Gratitude Was Essential
for the American Character
Daily Signal, by Arthur Milikh    Original Article
Posted By: Judy W.- 11/23/2017 6:47:25     Post Reply
Our two greatest presidents, George Washington and Abraham Lincoln, respectively thought Thanksgiving sufficiently important to initiate its national celebration and to later revive this tradition. Our accepted convention is that Thanksgiving is about family togetherness and feasting. Surely this is part of it—but perhaps a more refined notion of what this nearly ancient holiday should mean for us today is helpful. National days of reflection are required to unify the American public in common sentiment. Washington had this in mind in issuing his rightly famous Thanksgiving Day proclamation of 1789. First begun as a harvest holiday,

Here in the Washington D.C. area, polite society has reached judgment on the allegations against Roy Moore, and moved on. Mitch McConnell, a political enemy of Moore, rendered the verdict. “I believe the women,” he said. He didn’t tell us what facts he had reviewed or why he believed all of them. Ivanka Trump, who has a brand to protect, concurred, declaring: There is a special place in hell for people who prey on children. I’ve yet to see a valid explanation, and I have no reason to doubt the victims’ accounts. Doug Jones, Moore’s opponent in the Alabama Senate race, has converted

Never Mind ‘Trumpism’:
What is ‘Deplorablism’?

There is lots of talk about a new nationalist populist worker movement. Supposedly, something quite new would institutionalize, define, and solidify the Trump base of aging Reagan Democrats, old Ross Perot independents, Tea Party remnants, newly disaffected Democratic workers, and a few returning libertarians and paleocons. Certainly, together they helped to swung the election in 2016. But what exactly would be the formal agenda of the proverbial deplorables and irredeemables? And how would it differ all that much from conservative Republicanism of generations past? After all, despite a much-hyped

For the last few years, the media has been dominated by a number of sensational stories: that Trump colluded with Russia to influence the presidential election; that the Trump team was wiretapped by Obama intelligence officials; that Hillary used a private email server to transmit classified information; that Hillary and the DNC colluded with Russian sources to compile a dossier on Trump, and finally, that Russia acquired 20% of America’s uranium supply during the same time period $145 million miraculously appeared in the Clinton Foundation’s bank account.

Trump Administration’s 2 Priorities for
Welfare Reform Executive Order

President Donald Trump is making welfare reform a major priority and will sign an executive order laying out the administration’s goals while also urging action by Congress, a White House official said Thursday. Trump’s executive order will be twofold, said Paul Winfree, director of budget policy at the White House. The order will state the Trump administration’s principles for welfare reform of empowering individuals and learning from state and local initiatives, and then direct federal agencies to come back to the president with recommendations for implementing the principles. “Welfare reform is something that is very important to the president,” Winfree said during

TALLAHASSEE — The Florida Democratic Party chairman resigned Friday in shame. A Republican state senator faces possible expulsion for sexual harassment. The state Senate’s top Democratic leader abruptly stepped down after admitting an extramarital affair with a lobbyist. Even amid the flood of sexual misconduct revelations that have rocked state capitals across the country, the nation’s biggest swing state has lived up to its reputation for political drama and excess over the past month, with major implications for next year’s contested U.S. Senate and gubernatorial elections — and the next presidential race.

Tom Coburn Has A Plan To

People say a lot of things about politicians. One of those things is never, “I miss that person and I wish he were still in Washington.” Well, we may have to make an exception for former Oklahoma senator Tom Coburn. For Republicans concerned about exorbitant federal spending and congressional abuses of authority, the affection is obvious. Even liberals have to concede that Coburn was that rare creature, a swamp-dwelling unicorn who stuck to his principles and and cared more about getting things done and fixing problems above all else.

The outing of U.S. Senator Al Franken (D-MN) as the latest high profile alleged abuser of women – accompanied by photographic evidence – calls for a cautious analysis. Not because there is any doubt about the veracity of the accusations by Franken’s main accuser, Leeann Tweeden. (Snip) What needs to be examined closely and critically is how the mainstream media and the powers that be – including elements of the Resistance, the Shadow Government, and the Deep State – are preparing to use this story to advance their ultimate agenda: The take down and removal from office of President Donald

There’s a lot going on in DC this week, but it seems to be overshadowed by Weinstein case creep -- the penchant for women coming out of the woodwork to accuse high profile men of sexual misbehavior, much of it from decades earlier and most of it unverifiable. Some these allegations are clearly fabrications. That certainly seems to be true of the claims against Roy Moore. On Twitter, Thomas Wictor has made a credible analysis establishing that the one piece of non-testimonial record against Moore, a yearbook notation purportedly by Judge Moore in 1977, is a forgery made with two

We keep hearing about how angry Trump voters are destroying the Republican Party, but last week’s Schumer-show demonstrated that the people running it would rather run it into the ground than give up their grip on power. The Smart Set managed to get slaughtered on election night – let’s not sugarcoat it, we got creamed. And the dim bulbs in Congress seem determined to somehow turn tax cuts into something Republican voters hate. The GOPe makes everything worse, like pumpkin spice. Oh, and then there’s Roy Freaking Moore, whose creepitude led to the inevitable lecture about conservative principles, which apparently now

Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) ripped President Trump in an interview, saying he doesn´t think the president has "principles and beliefs." “I don’t agree with the way he’s conducting his presidency, obviously,” McCain said during an interview with Esquire. “He’s an individual that unfortunately is not anchored by a set of principles. I think he’s a person who takes advantage of situations." McCain said Trump was "successful" as a builder and an entrepreneur. "But I don’t think he has the fundamental underpinnings of principles and beliefs,” he said. He added: “I don’t think there was any doubt about his views toward

In light of the President´s continued attacks on freedom of the press and CNN, we do not feel it is appropriate to celebrate with him as his invited guests. We will send a White House reporting team to the event and report on it if news warrants.”CNN and Trump have long been at odds, with Trump chastising the network for purveying “fake news.” Trump targeted CNN

Veteran radio host and writer Garrison Keillor confirmed Wednesday that he was fired by his longtime broadcast home, Minnesota Public Radio, over accusations of improper behavior. After confirming the news in an email to the Associated Press, Keillor issued a follow-up statement saying he was terminated over “a story that I think is more interesting and more complicated than the version MPR heard.” However, he did not elaborate. MPR issued a statement on its website Wednesday announcing it would “end its business relationship with Keillor’s media companies effective immediately.” That includes ending distribution and broadcast of The Writer´s Almanac, a daily syndicated

Speaking on ABC´s "This Week," Cokie Roberts made a startling admission: "every female in the press corps knew" to avoid being in an elevator with Rep. John Conyers (D-MI), and has apparently known about this "for years." Conyers has been accused of multiple instances of sexual harassment and has stepped down from the House Judiciary Committee. Despite the allegations against him, major players in the Democratic Party have defended Conyers and will not say that he should resign. Pelosi even referred to the embattled congressman as an "icon." Roberts was discussing the current culture on Capitol Hill with Martha Raddatz and Anna

James O’Keefe is a celebrated right-wing pseudo-journalist whose job consists largely of attempting to prove various conservative conspiracy theories but, instead, accidentally disproving them. O’Keefe’s most recent fail is an attempt to help alleged child molester Roy Moore by tarnishing the Washington Post. O’Keefe recruited a fake source, who attempted to lure the Post into reporting her false accusations and “admitting” on camera that their reporting would affect the outcome of the election. The scam collapsed for a number of reasons. His fake source provided a flimsy cover story with odd details — she claimed to have only spent a

Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) on Tuesday said President Trump insulted the sacrifice of Native American veterans when he made a ´Pocahontas´ crack at a White House ceremony honoring them. "Our nation owes a debt of gratitude to the Navajo Code Talkers, whose bravery, skill & tenacity helped secure our decisive victory over tyranny & oppression during WWII," McCain tweeted. "Politicizing these genuine American heroes is an insult to their sacrifice." (Snip) Trump referred to Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) as "Pocahontas" at the event on Monday, an insult that critics have condemned for being inappropriate and having racial undertones.

He wasn’t supposed to win. But he did. He wasn’t supposed to have survived the onslaught of media backlash since taking office. But he has. Today members of Congress and the media are said to be amazed by Donald Trump’s resiliency and ability to continue fighting back against the ongoing effort to diminish and/or destroy his presidency. “Frankly, I’m stunned he’s still here and I’m not the only one. I don’t know how he does it. The guy just doesn’t quit.” So says a D.C. political operative with ties to senior members of Congress and various members of local and

A group of Chinese investors is suing Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe and the brother of Hillary Clinton, saying they were defrauded of $17 million in a cash-for-green card “scam.” The investors filed suit in Fairfax Co., Va. circuit court last week, Politico first reported. The suit alleges that McAuliffe and Clinton’s youngest brother, Anthony Rodham, “exploited” the 32 investors by promising to “leverage…political connections” to ensure that their visa applications “will get to the top of the pile, and then be approved.” The green cards were to be granted as part of the federal government’s EB-5 visa program.
