    Trump’s DOJ says Whitaker can serve in acting role without Senate confirmation. Matthew Whitaker can properly serve as acting attorney general without Senate confirmation, the Justice Department said in a legal opinion released Wednesday, though the document is unlikely to end the debate over Mr. Whitaker’s installation as the country’s top law-enforcement officer.

    thursday on the radio, LevinTV host Mark Levin took Harvard Law Professor Laurence Tribe to school over the temporary appointment of Matthew Whitaker as acting attorney general. “Laurence Tribe has gotten dumber and dumber as the years have gone on,” Levin said. Tribe argues that the appointment of Whitaker, who previously served as chief of staff to former Attorney General Jeff Sessions, is unconstitutional. Levin explains that the appointment is perfectly lawful under federal law governing Cabinet vacancies and eligibility to temporarily act as attorney general while President Trump seeks a new nominee to send to the Senate for confirmation....

    The sports world has responded to President Trump’s criticisms of NFL players who protest against the national anthem. On Friday night, Trump gave a fiery speech in Huntsville, Alabama, while speaking at a rally for Republican Senate candidate Luther Strange. President Trump referred to NFL players who protest the anthem as as “SOB’s.” He also said that it would be a winning public relations move if an NFL owner were to “fire” a player for such a protest. Trump said: See the video at the link. By Saturday evening, the NFL Players Association, Commissioner Goodell, and the leadership of several...

    On Friday, President Donald Trump told reporters that he is moving on after the Republican health care bill was pulled from a floor vote in the House of Representatives. As market and political analysts work to understand what the bill’s failure means for the future of tax reform, one outspoken advocate for tax cuts expressed concern. Grover Norquist, president and founder of Americans for Tax Reform, a politically conservative organization that opposes all tax increases, said health care reform is an essential first step to achieving significant tax reform. “It has to go first in order to have a significant...

    One by one the barriers are falling for an impending Trump triumph. Ted Poe (R-TX), a U.S. Representative and former member of the House Freedom Caucus, has announced Sunday afternoon that he will be resigning from the group that aided in destroying the Paul Ryan-led GOP’s attempt to repeal Obama’s 2010 healthcare act. The House Freedom Caucus has been under fire and was heavily criticized by numerous Republicans before the GOP healthcare plan fell apart on Friday. The Texas Tribune got a statement from Rep. Poe: “I have resigned from the House Freedom Caucus. In order to deliver on the...

    Well, don’t say we didn’t predict this reality.  The Democrats are smartly not waiting for any recovery efforts by Republicans; and immediately following the failure of President Trump’s healthcare repeal and replacement approach, Senator Bernie Sanders begins putting their ‘single provider’ alternative together.   (Story Link) The strategy is, unfortunately, brilliant.  When Obamacare further collapses, and all Americans are being further crushed by the skyrocketing costs, at exactly the moment when the American electorate are at their most frustrated and everyone is in crisis mode – whammo, here’s the solution. All of the previous opposition to single-provider has been kicked out of the...

    House Freedom Caucus chairman Rep. Mark Meadows on Sunday shrugged off taunts from President Trump, saying that health care reform was still alive and that congressional Republicans would aim to pass legislation for Trump to sign. Friday's failure on healthcare legislation, the North Carolina Republican said, does not mean that the effort to replace Obamacare is dead. "To put a stake in it today would not be accurate," the North Carolina Repubican said on ABC's This Week, explaining that the intra-party conversations in the past two days have been about regrouping on healthcare. He said that it will be the...

    Fresh off a defeat on U.S. healthcare legislation, the White House warned rebellious conservative lawmakers that they should get behind President Donald Trump's agenda or he may bypass them on future legislative fights, including tax reform. The threat by White House chief of staff Reince Priebus to build a broad coalition on tax reform that could include moderate Democrats came as the Republican head of the tax-writing committee in the House of Representatives said he hoped to move a tax bill through his panel this spring. House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Kevin Brady said his committee had been working...
