Trump´s $33 Billion Tax Cut
You Didn´t Know You Just Got

Investor´s Business Daily, by Staff

Original Article

Regulation: In a recent editorial, we noted that President Trump´s decision to get rid of President Obama´s Clean Power Plan would be a major money-saver for companies and a deregulatory boost for the economy. Now, new data actually put a dollar figure on it. Senior Trump officials now estimate that the president´s decision will save consumers some $33 billion. No, they won´t get a big notice on their monthly bill saying: "You saved $X amount this month, thanks to repeal of the Clean Power Act." But the money will go into their pocket nonetheless, since they will avoid paying the much-higher

The raid on our pocket books has been underway in the Northwest for some time. Supplier Puget Power embraced the alternative energy ideology and their most recent dumb decision to sever connection with a coal company in Montana speaks to another round of billing increases, done deal, no chance to contest their monopolistic decision.

#2 - the other thing Puget Power did a few years ago was to turn down a proposal from a company that wanted to build a coal fired power plant in Skagit (?) county. They now pay a much higher rate from a Canadian coal fired plant.

Global Warming Hypocrites: Their Carbon

Scientists, identified as "conservation scientists" who presumably oppose human greenhouse gas emissions, have looked into their own lifestyles, as well as the lifestyles of other "conservation scientists," and found that they are preaching one thing while practicing another. "Most" of these scientists, the British Telegraph reports, "have a carbon footprint which is virtually no different to anyone else." Those are the findings of a new study from Cambridge University published by researchers who were "were keen to find out whether being fully informed about global warming, plastic in the ocean or the environmental impact of eating meat, triggers more ethical

To Fix Everything Wrong With
Obama´s Failed Iran Nuke Deal,

Nuclear Threat: As usual, the big media and Democrats are falling all over themselves in criticizing President Trump´s decision to decertify Iran´s compliance with President Obama´s nuclear deal. But in truth, Trump´s move was a clever one that will force both Iran and Congress to move beyond the failed status quo. In decertifying the Iran nuclear deal, which Obama concluded in 2015 without Congress, Trump now puts the ball in Congress´ court. Under legislation passed by Congress in response to Obama´s deeply flawed Iran treaty — a deal so bad he didn´t even dare submit it to Congress for approval —

Scandalmongering: Over the weekend, CNN offered up a shocking revelation: Russia had enlisted Pikachu and his Pokemon pals in its effort to get Donald Trump elected president. Well, not really. It was just the latest nonstory whipped up by the Trump-hating press. Here´s the headline CNN put on its "exclusive" story: "Even Pokemon Go used by extensive Russian-linked meddling effort." It begins: "Russian efforts to meddle in American politics did not end at Facebook and Twitter. A CNN investigation of a Russian-linked account shows its tentacles extended to YouTube, Tumblr and even Pokemon Go." By "meddle," of course, they mean "helped elect Trump

Will Wrong Kind Of Tax Reform
Kill Charity In The U.S.?
Investor´s Business Daily, by Howard Husock    Original Article
Posted By: RockyTCB- 10/16/2017 7:39:41     Post Reply
As the tax reform debate continues in Washington, we can expect continuing liberal charges that the rich fail to pay their "fair share" currently — and would unjustly benefit from lower rates. But any push to raise top rates may well lead to collateral damage to something almost all Americans say they support: charitable giving. That´s the conclusion that can be drawn from an impressive new analysis published by the Chronicle of Philanthropy. "Nonprofit groups," the Chronicle reports, "have become more dependent on the wealthy generally." The analysis goes on to say: "The wealthy now account for more than 75%

Social Security´s Raw Deal For The Poor

Entitlements: Social Security recipients, especially those with little money in the bank, got a little bit of good news last week: Their checks will go up about 2% this year. Congratulations, but too bad that money wasn´t invested in the economy instead. Maybe a 2% raise doesn´t sound so bad, but consider this: It was even less than the 2.2% estimated last summer, and that tiny 2% rise was the biggest gain since 2012. Moreover, when you consider that the main stock market indexes have risen more than 20% over the past year, it´s not such a flattering comparison. An unfair comparison?

On ObamaCare, Trump Is Being
Attacked For Upholding The Law

Health Reform: President Trump´s decision to stop funding an ObamaCare subsidy program is being treated as an attempt to sabotage the law. In reality, Trump is abiding by the law as the Democrats wrote it. There is no question that stopping payments for ObamaCare´s "cost sharing reduction" subsidies will have serious implications. Insurance companies have been warning state insurance regulators that they´ll have to jack up premiums even higher next year if these subsidies go away, and the Congressional Budget Office reported that it could push up premiums by 20%. But there´s an important element missing from the lamentations coming from the

Partisanship: Everyone knows that the country is more politically polarized than ever, but most don´t know why. Data from the highly respected Pew Research Center provides a definitive answer. It´s because Democrats have moved sharply to the extreme left. The Pew report — titled "The Partisan Divide on Political Values Grows Even Wider" — is the latest in a decades-long series of surveys it has conducted to gauge people´s views on various key issues, including the size of government, immigration, corporate profits, race relations. The authors of the report note the "divisions between Republicans and Democrats on fundamental political values ...

Cutting Off UNESCO: Nice Start, Now How

U.N. Reform: President Trump has announced the U.S. will pull out of UNESCO, the U.N.´s educational, science and cultural organization, because of the agency´s "continuing anti-Israel bias." This should be a warning to the rest of the U.N., which is no better. Among the many enduring disappointments of the United Nations is its profound and at times shocking anti-Israel sentiment, which verges on a kind of sick obsession that runs completely contrary to the U.N.´s founding principles. But UNESCO is particularly bad. How bad? In 2011, it went too far even for the Obama administration by giving "Palestine," a state

Congress Makes Big Progress
On Pro-Growth Tax Reform
Investor’s Business Daily, by Lewis K. Uhler and Peter Ferrara    Original Article
Posted By: RockyTCB- 10/13/2017 6:05:49     Post Reply
The so-called "do nothing Congress" is making amazing progress toward major, pro-growth tax reform. Last week the House passed a budget (first time in over a decade), enabling us to use reconciliation (51 votes) in the Senate for tax reform. Just before that, the Trump administration joined congressional tax writing committees to issue a "Unified, Pro-Growth, Republican Tax Reform Plan." The architects of "progressivism" (Schumer, Pelosi, Sanders) continue their chant that we are "toadies" of Wall Street and want to cut taxes for the rich. Their left wing "intellectual" apologists like the Tax Policy Center claim that our tax cut proposals

Health Reform: President Trump may have found an ingenious way to inject more choice and competition into the insurance market, and offer affordable coverage to millions, with the stroke of his pen. No wonder the left is freaking out. According to multiple news accounts, Trump is expected to sign an executive order as early as this Thursday that, among other things, would make it easier to join "association health plans." These plans let small businesses and individuals band together to buy large-group coverage, and like plans offered by multistate businesses, these association health plans would be exempt from state regulations, as well

E-Commerce: Wasn´t it just months ago that some were lamenting the impending demise of Wal-Mart (WMT) in its battle-to-the-death with Amazon.com (AMZN)? Maybe those obituaries were written a bit too prematurely. Wal-Mart, the largest retailer in the world, is showing that an elephant can dance. Besieged by Amazon´s online dominance and ability to deliver goods at super-low prices overnight, has responded to the challenge. Unlike other brick-and-mortar retailers like JCPenney (JCP), Sears (SHLD) and other former stalwarts that themselves were never able to respond to Wal-Mart´s challenge 30 years ago, the Bentonville, Ark.-based discounting giant has moved aggressively into e-tailing.

Hillary Clinton was forced to make a series of embarrassing media cancellations today after falling and hurting her foot, MailOnline can reveal. The former First Lady failed to show up at BBC Woman’s Hour, ITV´s This Morning show and at the London Studios to record an interview with the BBC´s Graham Norton Show. Sources said her fall had followed her appearance at the South Bank Centre last night and the twice-defeated Presidential candidate had been exhausted after a lengthy book promotion tour.

Ohio Gov. John Kasich refused to rule out a run for president in 2020 as a Republican primary challenger to President Trump. When asked by Chuck Todd — host of NBC´s "Meet The Press" — if he was going to run in 2020 against Trump, Kasich demurred. "I don´t know what I´m going to do tomorrow," he said. "I will tell you this — the other day, my wife said to me one morning, ´You know, John, I wish you were the president.´ That´s how I knew the country was in trouble."

Hillary Clinton slammed what she called "endemic" sexism and misogyny in America during an interview with Fareed Zakaria, which aired Sunday. Clinton, who was interviewed by Zakaria on his show, "GPS," said sexism was so inherent that she purposely hadn´t highlighted her career history of fighting for women´s rights when she ran for president in 2016. However, she admitted that with the benefit of hindsight, she "could have tried harder" to do so. "I´m a middle-class girl from the middle of the country, and so I always struggled with like, OK, so what´s my story. And it suddenly dawned on me that

New York activist Tamika Mallory says she was booted from an American Airlines flight in Miami after a pilot inserted himself into a dispute over her seat assignment. Mallory, a co-chair of the Women’s March on Washington, was traveling home to New York when the pilot followed her to scold her over an argument she had with a gate agent. He then had her summoned from her seat and kicked off the flight, she told the Daily News. “It definitely was white male aggression. I was singled out, I was disrespected, and he was trying to intimidate me. I was

Hillary Clinton on Sunday defended NFL players who knelt during the national anthem, saying kneeling is a “reverent” position that is not against “our anthem or our flag.” The former Democratic presidential candidate, who was at the Southbank Centre´s London Literature Festival, urged Democrats to use the issue against President Trump. Clinton was embarking on a foreign trip to promote her book “What Happened.” She said people should resist “what are very clear dog-whistles” to the Trump base, pointing to the example of kneeling NFL players. “That´s what black athletes kneeling was all about,” she said in response to a question about ways to

If the NFL thought Americans would ease the backlash against the league — they were sadly mistaken. Photos of empty stadiums from around the league show how dire a situation kneelers have spurred. (Photo) Breitbart News reports: Note, that the Jets played New England on Sunday, meaning there should have been a big crowd for that game. The Texans, Atlanta, and Baltimore are also very relevant teams with relatively loyal fan bases. Yet, thousands upon thousands of fans no-showed or didn’t buy tickets for those games.

Former NFL quarter Colin Kaepernick has filed a grievance against NFL owners because he believes they colluded to keep him out of a job due to his protests during the national anthem. Kaepernick first protested in the 2016 preseason when he took a knee during the national anthem. He claimed he protested against racial injustice across the country. The protests took off, with many players following his lead.Kaepernick hired criminal defense lawyer Mark Geragos, who has represented Michael Jordan and musician Chris Brown.

Colin Kaepernick has filed a grievance under the collective bargaining agreement for collusion against NFL team owners, reports Mike Freeman of Bleacher Report. Kaepernick has hired high-profile attorney Mark Geragos and is preparing to release a statement about his grievance soon, added Freeman. The free-agent quarterback has remained unemployed since his release by the San Francisco 49ers in March and has garnered little interest from teams around the league. This has caused some to suggest he´s being blackballed for his national anthem protests during the 2016 season. Kaepernick appeared in 12 games for 49ers in 2016, throwing for 2,241 yards with

The Clinton Foundation told DailyMail.com it will not return as much as $250,000 in donations from Harvey Weinstein, saying on Sunday the money had already been spent on the organization’s programs and used for charitable purposes. The foundation’s decision comes as politicians and philanthropic groups grapple with whether to return donations they have received from Weinstein, after numerous women stepped forward this month to accuse the movie mogul of sexual assault, harassment and rape. Over a dozen Democratic politicians have said they will give back or donate Weinstein’s campaign contributions to charity. The Clinton Foundation faced questions about Weinstein’s funding after Hillary Clinton
