    ... Federal AgenciesIf Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren had taken a page out of Virginia Delegate Nick Freitas' book, she might not be in the pickle she is today. Warren (is spitting mad) at Mick Mulvaney, the Office of Management and Budget director who does double duty heading up an agency whose creation Warren championed: the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB). The CFPB's previous director was an ideological ally of Warren. Since Mulvaney took over, Warren has ripped the agency's decisions. Warren (said) Mulvaney is giving "the middle finger" to consumers, and she (railed at) Mulvaney's indifferent response to the 10...

    Now that President Trump didn't veto this monster spending bill, I believe it was more about the threat of Fedgov shutdown than the immediacy to re-build our military. He would be the target because of the MSM hating Trump, while those media outlets being a blatant supporter of all things Democrat/Liberal and even Socialism.

    President Trump on Friday announced that the Department of Justice would issue a new rule banning bump stocks. In a tweet, Trump announced that he was directing DOJ to reverse a 2010 decision by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosive (ATF) that classified bump stocks as firearm parts so the devices could be banned under current laws that prohibit owning fully automatic weapons. Trump blamed the legalization of bump stocks on the Obama administration. "Obama Administration legalized bump stocks. BAD IDEA. As I promised, today the Department of Justice will issue the rule banning BUMP STOCKS with a...

    WOW! How to start? Let me try this: I once heard a presentation by a man who'd spent 20 years in the visual media business. I was shocked to learn that his experience with the Generation Xers and Millennials is as follows: * Most of them DO NOT READ BOOKS but get their information from their electronic devices (smart phones, tablets, computers). * If something they “click” on doesn't grab their attention in the first 8 seconds, THEY'RE GONE! * Even if they're “hooked” in those first 8 seconds, most of them will TUNE OUT if it runs much over...

    Democratic leaders spiked the football Thursday after the House passed the $1.3 trillion omnibus spending package and argued they have been able to accomplish more despite not holding the White House or either congressional chamber. After rolling through a litany of Democratic wins in the spending package, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., declared Democrats were big winners in the bipartisan bill despite their standing in Congress. Specifically, he touted funding for the Gateway tunnel project and increased spending for the National Institutes of Health, along with other programs.

    Bank of America further solidified its corporate position in favor of gun control after sponsoring an anti-gun discussion hosted by Axios on Friday. Axios co-founder Mike Allen facilitated the talk between activist and Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School student David Hogg and Democratic Sen. Richard Blumenthal of Connecticut. The event, held in Washington, D.C., occurred at 8 a.m. and had no outside sponsors beside BoA. Despite the fact that it was billed as a conversation “on gun safety in America,” there was virtually no disagreement between Hogg and Blumenthal on policy. Allen asked Hogg what “the biggest mistake the media...

    Actor and comedian Bill Murray penned an op-ed Thursday comparing the Parkland shooting survivors to the students “who helped end the Vietnam War.” Writing for NBC News THINK, Mr. Murray drew parallels between the Parkland students and the Vietnam War student protesters who spurred the antiwar movement of the 1960s. “I was thinking, looking at the kids in Parkland, Florida who have started these anti-gun protests, that it really was the students that began the end of the Vietnam War,” Mr. Murray wrote. “It was the students who made all the news, and that noise started, and then the movement...

    Why did China and other countries act contrary to the theory of Friedman? Because Friedman's arguments, unfortunately, are correct only when all other variables in economic equations remain unchanged. Trump had changed the overall conditions of the economic game. On the one hand, Trump raises taxes for companies outside America (tariffs), and on the other hand, he reduces domestic taxes for companies in America. Let me remind you that thanks to Trump, now corporate income tax in America has been reduced from 35% to 21%. Also, the lion's share of bureaucratic barriers to business development, set by Obama, are canceled...

    From the West African country of Mali comes a story of an isolated village where the locals have banded together to fight off terrorists with whatever they have. Mali has been in the midst of a low-key war since 2012 that started off with Tuareg rebels fighting the government and transitioned to an international effort led by a 4,000-strong French military force (the country was a French colony until 1960) squaring off with a trio of wannabe Al-Qaeda jihadist groups in an ongoing asymmetric war pitting Western airpower against increasingly aggressive militants. However, according to the above report from France24,...
  • Oregon Initiative Seeks To Ban Semiautomatic Rifles, Mandate Current Owners To Turn Them Over

    In Oregon, a new initiative from a religious group is taking it a step forward. They want to ban any semiautomatic rifle with a detachable magazine, and that can hold more than ten rounds. They also want current owners of these firearms, law-abiding Americans, to take them out of the state, register them, sell it to a FFL dealer, destroy it, or turn them over. That’s right, folks—full-blown gun confiscation. Right now, the anti-gun church group is collecting signatures. The hope is that they fall short (via KGW8):

    The Washington Free Beacon ^ | March 22, 2018 4:15 pm | Elizabeth Harrington
    The House and Senate increased their own budgets in the $1.3 trillion omnibus spending package. The Senate increased its total salaries of officers and employees by $12.6 million in the 2,232-page bill that lawmakers had fewer than 48 hours to read and vote on. The bill avoids a government shutdown that would take place at midnight on Friday. Aside from giving their own institutions a bonus, the omnibus also gives away millions to prevent "elderly falls," promote breastfeeding, and fight "excessive alcohol use." The legislation increases the Senate budget to $919.9 million, up $48.8 million from fiscal year 2017, according...

If Trump vetoes the spending bill, it would put an end to the game. Veto the bill, Mr. President! The Congress doesn't need a two-week recess for Easter!

    In an interview with Wired magazine, Mark Zuckerberg revealed Facebook’s political agenda — he wants to curb free speech and free expression on the platform in exchange for “safety.” From the Wired interview: I think at the heart of a lot of these issues we face are tradeoffs between real values that people care about. You know, when you think about issues like fake news or hate speech, right, it’s a tradeoff between free speech and free expression and safety and having an informed community. These are all the challenging situations that I think we are working to try to...

    Romans 1:14 I am debtor both to the Greeks, and to the Barbarians; both to the wise, and to the unwise. America hired President Trump to stand between them and the District of Corruption. There is no greater power the President has than the power of the veto and there has never been a more deserving bill than Porkulous 2.0. This is a bill Nazi Pelosi would be proud to pass as it has every Democrat Christmas wish and they are asking Trump to be their Golden Santa Claus. There is no way the country can continue to dig the...

    Do you think Mitch got any concessions from democrats on moving appointments more quickly?? Nope. Because he didn't want any. It's 2006 all over again and the republicans are in a losing mentality. They PLAN to turn the legislative branch over to the democrats next January. They are INTENTIONALLY working to demoralize us. We must THWART their plans by ELECTING and RE-ELECTING republicans across the country. A slew of Boehner boys are retiring. We can create a far more conservative House majority - in direct spite of the moderate-liberal leadership!

    The new tariffs announced by President Donald Trump have generated intense controversy. With the debate ongoing, it might be useful to examine how other countries have dealt with similar policy debates in the past. New Zealand now ranks third in The Heritage Foundation’s Index of Economic Freedom and is one of the champions of economic freedom around the world. But it wasn’t always so. In the mid-1980s, New Zealand was facing an economic crisis, with its domestic market and international trade both heavily regulated. Unemployment had reached 11 percent, and inflation was a sky-high 15 percent. In response, the government...
