Senate paves the way for tax
reform by passing a budget

Washington Examiner, by  Joseph Lawler & Susan Ferrechio

The Senate passed a 2018 budget resolution late Thursday that will serve as the vehicle for comprehensive tax reform, the Republican Party´s top legislative goal. The measure passed 51-49, setting the stage for what will likely be GOP-only push for tax reform in the coming weeks. "Now´s when the real work begins," said Sen. Bob Corker, R-Tenn, a top Budget Committee member. "This is like giving us the green light to start." The House passed its own budget resolution earlier this month and will begin finalizing tax legislation next week. Senate Republican leaders said they don´t know yet whether the

The Senate passed a Budget? What are they doing that for? It is the House that passes the budget The Senate merely signs on. No budget is supposed to originate from the Senate. This is a total hoax piece of theater. Nothing more. You watch the House now- see what happens to this so-called "Budge".

Bill Clinton was once caught trying to sneak out of the White House - apparently to visit a mistress - by hiding under a raincoat in the back of his personal lawyer´s car. The former president was stopped by a Secret Service officer at the gate who inspected lawyer Bruce Lindsey´s vehicle and was shocked to see Clinton inside. Lindsey pleaded to be allowed to pass but the uniformed officer held firm and radioed for backup.

The House on Tuesday approved a massive tax overhaul that would usher in steep rate cuts for American companies, double the deduction millions of families claim on their annual returns and make a host of other changes as part of the biggest rewrite of the tax code since the Reagan administration. The bill passed on a 227-203 vote. The $1.5 trillion bill, presuming it clears the Senate as expected, would hand President Trump his first major legislative victory just days before year’s end and the congressional recess.“Today, we are giving the people of this country their money back,” House Speaker

WASHINGTON- The Republican-controlled U.S. Congress will begin voting on Tuesday on the biggest overhaul of the U.S. tax system in more than 30 years, with little standing in the way of the party’s first major legislative triumph under President Donald Trump. The House of Representatives, which introduced initial tax legislation barely six weeks ago on Nov. 2, was scheduled to vote on Tuesday afternoon. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said his chamber would vote on Tuesday evening. With strict party-line votes expected in both chambers, passage appeared all but certain.“Congress is standing at the doorstep of an historic opportunity,” McConnell

The Senate is reportedly probing former presidential candidate Jill Stein for possible collusion with Russia. The head of the Senate Intelligence Committee said Monday that the Stein probe was one of two investigations about Russian collusion that his panel is pursuing, according to The Washington Post. Stein dined with Russian president Vladimir Putin during a 2015 Moscow event that was also attended by President Trump’s former national security adviser, Mike Flynn. Politico reported in September that Stein — the Green Party candidate for president — was the beneficiary of Russian-bought political ads on Facebook. The committee head, Sen Richard Burr (R-NC),

Congress could upset the conventional wisdom that President Trump and Republican majorities on Capitol Hill have little to show for their first year governing together by passing the tax cut bill Tuesday. Republicans are especially hopeful their biggest legislative victory yet will refocus the public’s attention on a series of achievements they believe have gotten short shrift as the news cycle has lurched from one controversy to another throughout year one of the Trump presidency. “Passing tax reform should be seen as a once-in-a-generation accomplishment that will seriously undermine critics who were about to charge that Trump and Republicans in

An investigation into the Bureau of Land Management’s (BLM) handling of the 2014 Nevada standoff with rancher Cliven Bundy revealed “incredible bias,” widespread misconduct and likely illegal actions by the BLM. Prosecutors shared the report with the Bundys’ defense attorneys, prompting a petition to Judge Gloria Navarro for a mistrial, or for the case to be dismissed altogether, The Oregonian reports. Navarro’s judgement is expected to come down Wednesday. “It’s time for our men to go home and start making a living for their families,” Carol Bundy, Cliven Bundy’s wife, told The Daily Caller News Foundation. “We’re two years behind.

Former Obama-era Attorney General Eric Holder called for mass protests if President Trump fires special counsel Robert Mueller. This is the second warning Holder has issued this week in respect to rumors about President Trump relieving Mueller of his duties as special counsel. “ABSOLUTE RED LINE: the firing of Bob Mueller or crippling the special counsel’s office. If removed or meaningfully tampered with, there must be mass, popular, peaceful support of both. The American people must be seen and heard – they will ultimately be determinative,” tweeted Holder on Sunday. (Tweet)

It appears the Obama Administration weaponized the Federal Bureau of Investigation just like they weaponized the Internal Revenue Service. The Obama administration used government agencies to wage a covert war on their political enemies. This is an all-out war. We have a growing mountain of evidence to suggest the FBI was attempting to overthrow a duly elected president. We have evidence to suggest the FBI was protecting Hillary Clinton so she might be elected president. There is no smoking gun just yet – but the evidence is staggering – it is simply staggering. Rep.

PART I A GLOBAL THREAT EMERGES How Hezbollah turned to trafficking cocaine and laundering money through used cars to finance its expansion. In its determination to secure a nuclear deal with Iran, the Obama administration derailed an ambitious law enforcement campaign targeting drug trafficking by the Iranian-backed terrorist group Hezbollah, even as it was funneling cocaine into the United States, according to a POLITICO investigation. The campaign, dubbed Project Cassandra, was launched in 2008 after the Drug Enforcement Administration amassed evidence that Hezbollah had transformed itself from a Middle East-focused military and political organization into an international crime syndicate that some investigators believed was

What if a president used his power to interfere with a federal investigation involving foreign powers committing serious crimes in the United States as well as elsewhere? Such a thing would be considered a terrible scandal and, no doubt, lead to a federal probe by a special counsel who would be expected to get to the bottom of such a mess. But if you think this is a reference to the investigation led by Robert Mueller into possible collusion with Russia during the 2016 campaign and obstruction of justice once President Trump took office, you’re wrong.

He knows how to handle an asset, and that’s what he’s doing with the president,” James Clapper told CNN’s Jim Sciutto in an interview. Clapper, a CNN contributor, was responding to news that Putin phoned Trump on Sunday to thank him and the CIA for providing intelligence that helped thwart a terrorist attack in St. Petersburg last week.

The folks over at Ultimate Classic Rock published their ranking of the Beatles´ albums a couple of weeks ago. God bless them, they tried, but they got it all wrong. So I´m here to set them straight with my ranking. Enjoy! 13. Yellow Submarine (1969) #13 on UCR´s list Yellow Submarine is really only half a Beatles album -- the other side is George Martin´s score for the lackluster animated film. Even the half that belongs to the Fab Four contains only four original songs joined by two tunes that appeared earlier. The Yellow Submarine soundtrack really only has value to hardcore Beatles

“Europe has always been a continent of diversity. Migration has always been an integral part of its history,” the Council of Europe has claimed in a statement marking International Migrants Day. The international body stated on Monday that mass migration from the third world is “Europe’s present and future opportunity”, but warned that EU nations are “facing several challenges”. Challenges identified by the Council, which is considered Europe’s top human rights watchdog, include any public opposition to mass migration, along with countries “struggl[ing] to guarantee … human rights and fundamental freedoms”. “Anti-immigration political agendas swing election results while adding to the expansion of
