    Texas Republican Gov. Greg Abbott is urging tax-burdened New Jersey residents to move to the lone star state, following the release of New Jersey's budget proposal calling for tax hikes in the state where rates are already among the highest in the nation. “Hey, Jersey, don’t move to Fla. to avoid high taxes, come to Texas. Love, Gov. Abbott,” the column is titled. Abbott outlined the budget proposal unveiled by newly sworn-in Democratic Gov. Phil Murphy, which requests a $2.7 billion increase from the prior year’s budget. Abbott wrote that the “tax hikes include raising the sales tax and applying...
  • Was the Starbucks Incident a Setup?

    I thought about it, and I realized that it wasn't so long ago that such minor travesties and often much, much worse were things black people lived through every day. I thought about it, and I realized that it wasn't so long ago that such minor travesties and often much, much worse were things black people lived through every day. While it was never something I ever had to worry about in my life, millions of minorities did have to worry about things like that. That being said, I think what happened at the Starbucks in Philly doesn't pass the...

    First, Goldsmith should know. He was a high ranking Justice Department official — head the Office of Legal Counsel — during part of the George W. Bush administration. This placed him in the middle of issues regarding national security, electronic surveillance, and the like. He also worked closely with James Comey, including during the famous incident at Attorney General Ashcroft’s hospital bed that made Comey famous (or at least a legend in his own mind). At any rate, Goldsmith has this to say about the deep state and Donald Trump: America doesn’t have coups or tanks in the street. But...

    Not when “The Resistance” is in full control of congressional Democrats. Because of that intransigence, a Republican-only bill was able to include a sharp (not complete) cutback of the SALT. It is a dagger aimed at the fiscal heart of high tax blue states like Illinois, Connecticut, California, etc. How big a dagger? Sit down for the feel-good story of the day—I lead with the large headline because it’s just so yummy: President Donald Trump’s tax cuts will be anything but for about 1 million California taxpayers who will owe Uncle Sam more money a year from now. They’re the...

    California’s never ending housing crisis has led to a consistent domestic outmigration with a net of about 100,000 people every year leaving the state year after year, most of whom settle in Texas. This will likely result in California losing Congressional seats for the first time in its history once the results of the 2020 census are tallied. Further, California’s soaring unfunded pension liabilities to its all-powerful government labor unions are at least $477 billion with the annual shortfall to fund the pensions hitting about $5.4 billion a year by 2024—swamping rosy claims of a state budget surplus. Lastly, California’s...

  • Rushed Amazon warehouse staff pee into bottles as they’re afraid of ‘time-wasting’

    It meant workers operated a “toilet bottle” system. Mr Bloodworth said: “People just peed in bottles because they lived in fear of being ­disciplined over ‘idle time’ and ­losing their jobs just because they needed the loo.” He said the warehouse in Rugeley, Staffs, is like a prison with airport-style security ­scanners where workers are checked and patted down in case they steal. Hoodies and sunglasses were banned along with mobile phones as a ­security measure, he said. An Amazon spokesman said: "Amazon ensures all of its associates have easy access to toilet facilities which are just a short walk...

    Despite weekss of media hype about porn star Stormy Daniels, not only has President Trump’s job approval rating jumped in the latest Quinnipiac poll, but only 23 percent of Americans believe the alleged affair is an important issue. A massive majority of 73 percent say it is not. Even 51 percent of Democrats agree it is not an important issue, along with 79 percent of Independents. Moreover, there is also no notable gender gap on the question.In worse news for the media, although Trump denies the affair, by a margin of 58 – 14 percent they believe do not believe...

    According to a new ABC teaser video, former FBI director James Comey compared President Donald Trump to a “mob boss” in an interview set to air Sunday night. “How strange is it for you to sit here and compare the president to a mob boss?” he asks at the onset of the promo, indicating that Comey makes that comparison during the interview. Stephanopolous also asks Comey if he believes the president should be impeached and implores him to respond to critics who say he should have brought Hillary Clinton before a grand jury. Axios spoke to someone present at the...

    Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) told me Monday morning, “It would take about one weekend” of keeping the Senate in session to break the logjam and start confirming nominees. Why a two week break at Easter for the Senate instead of the Good Friday afternoon off break that most working Americans received? Why not a 24/7 work week until the Senate Democrats give up their childish practice of insisting on 30 hours of debate for every nominee no matter how lopsided the confirmation vote? Why maintain the Senate’s old tradition of deference to “home state” senators on circuit and even district...
  • F.B.I. Raids Office of Trump’s Longtime Lawyer Michael Cohen

    New York Times. ^ | April 9,2018 | MATT APUZZO
    The F.B.I. on Monday raided the office of President Trump’s longtime personal lawyer, Michael D. Cohen, seizing records related to several topics including payments to a pornographic-film actress. Federal prosecutors in Manhattan obtained the search warrant after receiving a referral from the special counsel, Robert S. Mueller III, according to Mr. Cohen’s lawyer, who called the search “completely inappropriate and unnecessary.” The search does not appear to be directly related to Mr. Mueller’s investigation, but likely resulted from information he had uncovered and gave to prosecutors in New York. “Today the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New...

    Four Ohio teenagers who pleaded guilty to murder and manslaughter charges after dropping a sandbag off of a highway overpass that killed a man have been given suspended sentences by the judge. The teens, all minors, were also ordered into a program at a treatment facility and given 30 hours of community service. CNN: "The youth treatment center is a lockdown facility in Toledo. The program runs six months, but there is no set time to release. The average youth spends eight months there," Lori Olender, juvenile division deputy chief for the Lucas County Prosecutor's Office, said in an email....

    war might he be referring to? Knives. And, acid. “An epidemic of stabbings and acid attacks in London has gotten so bad that London mayor Sadiq Khan is announcing broad new "knife control" policies designed to keep these weapons of war out of the hands of Londoners looking to cause others harm.” The mayor further tweeted: “No excuses: there is never a reason to carry a knife. Anyone who does will be caught, and they will feel the full force of the law.” “Never a reason to carry a knife...” He’s probably right. If you dared to use one to...
  • Things are going Trump’s way. He should not agree to an interview with Mueller.

    The Washington Post ^ | April 4,2018 | Ed Rogers
    I had been searching for the right words to express why I didn’t think President Trump should give an interview to special counsel Robert S. Mueller III, but Chris Christie found them. On ABC’s “This Week,” the former New Jersey governor said Trump “should never walk into that room with Robert Mueller.” If he does, Christie suggested, the president’s affinity for the “hyperbolic” could set in, and when dealing with federal agents, “that can send you to jail.” There you have it: an interview could lead to jail. A Trump interview with Mueller would introduce a new variable at a...

    According to the Washington Post, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents pulled off the largest single workplace raid on illegal aliens in a decade last night. Federal officials arrested 97 immigrants at a meat-processing plant in rural Tennessee late Thursday in what civil rights organizations said was the largest single workplace raid in a decade and a sign that the Trump administration is carrying out its plan to aggressively ramp up enforcement this year. Ten people were arrested on federal criminal charges, one person was arrested on state charges and 86 immigrants were detained for being in the country illegally,...

    Sharyl Attkisson ^ | Sharyl Attkisson ‏
    It’s illegal for foreign governments, citizens and corporations to donate to US politicians. But it’s legal for them to hire middlemen–US PR firms, lobbyists and law groups–to write our laws, meet with US government officials, arrange interviews with US media, places op-eds in news publications and generate positive social media. I’ve been combing through federal disclosure records disclosing which countries are paying which US companies to act as their “foreign agents,” particular when it comes to nemeses Russia and Ukraine. That’s this week’s cover story.

    Benchmark is a public school. Students are not handpicked – they get in by lottery. Tuition is paid for by taxes, but as a charter, Benchmark has independence from the public school system. Benchmark achieves academic excellence. The school scores are almost twice the state average – 96% scores in science, for example – but equally important is teaching character. "Everyone can tell a Benchmark student. Our students are kind, they are respectful, they are caring, and they love their country." The two teachers who founded the school, Carole Challoner and Barbara Darroch, invested their own money for land and...

    West Virginia Gov. Jim Justice claims he’s talked to Democrat Sen. Joe Manchin about him switching parties. President Donald Trump needs Manchin’s vote in the Senate, Justice said Thursday on “Fox & Friends.” “Joe and I had discussions along those lines,” Justice, a Republican, said. “I wish Joe was a Republican to tell you the truth,” he said of the West Virginia senator. “But to just tell it like it is, Joe’s got to do his thing and I’ve surely got to do mine and the president has got to do his. We need Joe’s vote. “And to be perfectly...
