Budget Deal Is Bipartisanship At Its Worst
Investor´s Business Daily, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:RockyTCB, 2/9/2018 7:28:11 AM

Big Government: Nothing brings together the two political parties in Washington like a bill that lets them spend more taxpayer money. Just look at the back slapping going on after the Senate agreed to a budget-busting bill. Sen. Majority Leader Mitch McConnell crowed about how the Senate leadership "worked hard to find common ground." Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer added that "I believe we have reached a budget deal that neither side loves but both sides can be proud of. That´s compromise. That´s governing." If this budget agreement is what passes for governing in Washington, we´d like to see less of it, not

Just guessing, but I suspect the world doesn’t end in a nuclear holocaust - it ends in a world wide financial Armageddon. Sooner or later the worlds deficit chickens are going to come home to roost and it ain’t gonna be purdy. You might want to lay in some extra canned goods and cartridges. We may need them sooner than you think.

It is too bad that Steve Bannon turned out to be such a goofball. We need an army of true patriots recruited for the next election to primary out the remaining RINO´s in both houses of congress.

Witness the UniParty at work. Great Kabuki at our childrens´ expense. Scowling Nancy creates the DACA diversion, while the progs get EVERYTHING else they want.

No funding for the wall, no infrastructure funding, extension of CHIP and other prog programs.

Nada for MAGA.

DACA? They´ll get that in a few weeks.

Talk about "Art of the Deal": President Trump has been outmaneuvered by the swamp ..

.. unless he vetoes this monstrosity and lets the government shut down. The stock market is in a (needed) major correction, anyway.

Your move, Mr. President.

It’s Buy Partisanship, not bipartisanship. Unfortunately, the evil and stupid parties are buying this enormous spending deal with our money.

Forget the costly military parade. Need to have a Taxpayers March to show who is shouldering this burden through higher taxes, higher deficits and higher cost of government. Perhaps we will be offered the same generous FBI pensions if we go away.

Because they think the government shutting down is the end of the world while the rest of us think it´s a nice break from bipartisanship.

These fools (at least most of them) need to go home to constituents and get an earful. But they´d rather stay in DC surrounded by their echo chamber.

President Trump is not stupid. He tricked Schmucky a few weeks ago and he just did it again. He knows that the only way to a democrat´s heart is through our wallets. He dangled this money in front of their greedy faces and they bit. Now you will see so many deep and wide cuts in their favorite agencies and cash cows that they won´t be able to find a place to spend it. This is poker not chess.

The wall will cost billions but it will save us trillions when the flow of illegals dries up. A beefed-up military will stop all major wars and quickly put an end to the skirmishes. Putin does not have the resources to back up his ambitions. His progress so far was only due to the ball-less Obango. The death of the democrat party is now imminent.

The latest mass shooting, which claimed 17 lives at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Florida, was a horrible tragedy. But that´s no excuse for the flurry of stories parroting a gun control advocacy group´s false claims about school shootings. In the immediate wake of the shooting, headlines starting appearing at major news sites: "There have already been 18 school shootings in the US this year" — ABC News "18 school shootings in 45 days — Florida massacre is one of many tragedies in 2018"—CNBC "18 school shootings in US in 2018"— AFP "U.S. averages a school shooting every 2.5 days in 2018" — Politico "We´re

Inflation: Suddenly, inflation is relevant again. In recent weeks, following a strong January jobs report, data showing wages rising rapidly and, now, a half-percentage point rise in consumer price inflation, markets have been spooked. It´s good to fear inflation, but wrong to overreact. The Bureau of Labor Statistics reported that the consumer price index, the widely followed inflation indicator, rose a surprisingly strong 0.5% in January, or 2.1% year over year. That´s still fairly modest inflation pressure, but it´s plainly picking up, with five months in a row now of consumer inflation over 2%. More worrisome still is the fact

Election 2018: Two months ago, Democrats were giddily talking about an anti-Trump-fueled "Blue Wave" that would sweep them into power in the November mid-terms. Now with less than nine months to go until election day, that wave may be petering out. A "wave election" was easy to believe in December. Republicans had lost a series of special elections, saw more than 30 state legislative seats flip from red to blue (this week´s loss in Florida made it 36) and lost five state-wide races, including governor races in Virginia and New Jersey. Republicans even lost a Senate seat in Alabama. At the same

This Is What A Police State And ´High Crimes

As ever more deliberately concealed evidence is being uncovered of factual "collusion" between the Obama White House, the failed presidential campaign of Hillary Clinton and Russia; of professional operatives in our intelligence services openly trying to first, cripple the campaign of Donald Trump, and then, having failed at that criminal objective, to delegitimize his presidency; and of secretly funded far-left anarchist groups proudly preaching violence against those they oppose, it seems the perfect time to ask three questions: First, what is the definition of a "Police State?" Second, what is the definition of "Treason?"

Whenever anyone suggested that officials at the FBI and Justice Department might have had a political bias that severely tainted both the investigation into the Trump-Russia and Hillary Clinton email scandals, they were called conspiracy-mongers or worse. But if the FBI and Justice are so squeaky clean of political bias, what accounts for the growing pile of top officials deeply involved in those supposedly aboveboard investigations who´ve been reassigned, demoted or have suddenly quit their jobs? There have been nearly half a dozen in just the past few weeks. Thankfully, reporter Sharyl Attkisson has been keeping a running

Media Bias: Of all the many recent examples of glaring media bias, none stands out so much as the rank politicization by the U.S. media of the South Korean Winter Olympics. What should be a happy, come-together moment for all of America rooting for its athletes, instead became a hate-Trump, #Resistance moment for the far-left media. The Trump-hatred has metastasized so far that today many journalists have completely abandoned any pretense of fairness and objectivity in their coverage of the world, so long as what they do makes Donald Trump and his administration look bad, stupid or ridiculous.

With A Budget Like This,
Can Tax Hikes Be Far Behind?
Investor´s Business Daily, by Staff    Original Article

Fiscal Policy: Unlike in previous years, when the president´s budget was declared dead on arrival as soon as it was released, President Trump´s budget was dead before it arrived, killed by a spendthrift Congress. Nevertheless, the budget does serve a purpose, if only to show how Republicans are paving the way for massive tax hikes down the road. News reports naturally are focusing on the "cuts" in Trump´s budget. But even if Congress hadn´t already upped the spending ante, Trump´s budget is hardly a testament to fiscal austerity. His budget has federal spending climbing by 5.8% this year, and 4.6% in 2019.

Governing: While our distracted national media fawn over a murderous dictator´s evil sister and pretend that the Rob Porter White House scandal means something, President Trump continues to remake our government. Quietly, Trump has begun to whittle away at the power and permanence of our nation´s bureaucratic ruling class by slashing regulations and limiting powers that Congress foolishly has allowed it to take over. It´s not merely the size of the bureaucracy that matters. It´s the increasing power that gives the anonymous men and women who toil in the U.S.´ unofficial fourth branch of government immense say over nearly every aspect of

   

 



 
Despite What You´ve Heard,

Expect to hear the term "crumbling infrastructure" a lot in the days ahead, as Washington debates the merits of President Trump´s plan to boost spending on the nation´s roads, bridges, airports, railroads and whatnot by $1.5 trillion. What´s unlikely to come up in these discussions, however, is the question of whether the nation´s infrastructure is really "crumbling" at all. For the past four decades, there´s been a steady stream of dire warnings about how our aging infrastructure was rapidly falling apart, and that without a massive influx of federal spending, roads would be impassable, bridges would collapse, ports would be unusable, and

Debt: The federal student loan program was supposed to make money. Instead it will cost tens of billions of dollars, forcing hardworking Americans to subsidize college-educated deadbeats. Who do we have to thank for that? A report from the Department of Education notes that the net cost of the federal government´s direct loan program is quickly heading into the red. This program, mind you, was supposed to be a moneymaker for the government, as students paid back federal loans with interest. But as it turns out, borrowers have been flocking toward various loan forgiveness programs, by which the government will lose money,

Wages: A large number of states and cities are raising their minimum wage this year, part of a wave of recent actions to help low-income workers. Sadly, not only will it not help, it will devastate many of them. Twenty-one states and Washington, D.C., will raise their minimum wage this year, under the misbegotten notion that it will help the poor, in particular struggling minority youth. It won´t. As a new study from the American Action Forum shows, not only will most workers not be better off, they will take a huge hit. Why? Common sense tells you that when you raise the

In June, 2006, Donald Trump taped an episode of his reality-television show, “The Apprentice,” at the Playboy Mansion, in Los Angeles. Hugh Hefner, Playboy’s publisher, threw a pool party for the show’s contestants with dozens of current and former Playmates, including Karen McDougal, a slim brunette who had been named Playmate of the Year, eight years earlier. In 2001, the magazine’s readers voted her runner-up for “Playmate of the ’90s,” behind Pamela Anderson.
