    One would have thought that once President Obama left office his charade of never doing anything illegal or having a smidgen of corruption would be exposed. Yet nearly 18 months later, he has found new enablers to continue his destructive policies that have no basis in law. This past week reiterated that situation. As I have defined before, once Obama lost the majorities in the House and Senate in January 2011, he did not abandon his desire to fundamentally remake our country. He just adopted a new strategy. With the help of political appointees who were true believers and career...

    President Trump signed an executive order Tuesday for a government-wide review of welfare programs, with a goal of putting more people back to work, White House officials said. The order directs all federal agencies involved in providing more than $700 billion in low-income assistance annually to study programs that are “failing Americans,” and to report back in 90 days with recommendations, said White House domestic policy council director Andrew Bremberg. “Our country still struggles from nearly record-high welfare enrollments,” Mr. Bremberg said in a conference call with reporters. “President Trump endorses reforms that ensure those in need receive assistance, while...

    Faith is embedded in the history, spirit, and soul of our Nation. On Religious Freedom Day, we celebrate the many faiths that make up our country, and we commemorate the 232nd anniversary of the passing of a State law that has shaped and secured our cherished legacy of religious liberty. Our forefathers, seeking refuge from religious persecution, believed in the eternal truth that freedom is not a gift from the government, but a sacred right from Almighty God. On the coattails of the American Revolution, on January 16, 1786, the Virginia General Assembly passed the Virginia Statute of Religious Freedom....

    The White House announced Thursday that President Trump is taking executive action on health care as Congress stalls on efforts to overhaul ObamaCare, calling for a plan that could let employers band together and offer coverage across state lines. An executive order Trump plans to sign Thursday morning aims to offer “alternatives” to ObamaCare plans and increase competition to bring down costs. “The time has come to give Americans the freedom to purchase health insurance across state lines, which will create a truly competitive national marketplace that will bring costs way down and provide far better care,” Trump said in...

    Having provoked much progressive sputtering and head spinning last Friday by issuing new regulations weakening the notorious HHS contraception mandate, President Trump is poised to sign an executive order that will further dry up Obamacare’s regulatory morass. The Wall Street Journal reports that the order will expand enrollee options restricted by the Obama administration — allowing coverage to be purchased through association health plans, encouraging the sale of short-term medical insurance, and permitting pretax funds from health reimbursement accounts (HRAs) to be used for premiums on health plans. The impending order has already drawn satisfying charges of “sabotage” from Obamacare...

    WASHINGTON – In a potential Supreme Court preview, two attorneys on Thursday argued about the validity of the high court considering President Trump’s comments about Muslims as evidence when deciding the fate of his travel ban. “This entire thing has come down to a judicial reading of (President Trump’s) campaign statements to issue a major constitutional ruling,” Will Consovoy, a partner at Consovoy McCarthy Park PLLC, said at the Heritage Foundation. Consovoy, whose firm has filed an amicus brief in support of the travel ban order, said that he would find it deeply troubling if the Supreme Court were to...

    Donald Trump is preparing an executive order that would achieve a long standing goal of insurance reform advocates.  The president's executive order will reportedly allow individuals to join group plans from out of state.  Current law allows companies to sell across state linesn but due to red tape and resistance by state insurance officials, most companies refuse to take advantage of the opportunity. The order would allow consumers to join associations and group health plans located in other states. ABC News: Current law allows companies to sell health insurance across state lines, but so far few have offered out-of-state...

    PUTTING IT IN PERSPECTIVE   After the Trump administration issued a third version of its executive order regarding immigration on Sunday, the Supreme Court justices asked the parties involved to file briefs by Oct. 5. SAN ANTONIO, TEXAS—A few days ago, Oct. 10 had been circled on calendars around the country – the day the Trump administration would make its first appearance before the US Supreme Court, to argue for the full enforcement of President Trump’s controversial “travel ban” executive order. Monday afternoon, in a one-paragraph order, the justices kicked that can down the road. One of the longest, most...

    Yesterday New York Governor Andrew Cuomo signed an executive order barring law enforcement officials from inquiring about the citizenship status of suspects during investigations. It would also apply to other state agencies outside of law enforcement in most cases. In other words, rather than just refusing to cooperate with ICE when they seek to deport illegal aliens, Cuomo is raising the bar and basically pretending that we don’t even have any immigration laws.While I’m sure there were plenty of Social Justice Warriors in New York City cheering the announcement, it didn’t go over so well with everyone. That includes...

    The Trump administration wants a judge to nix a legal challenge to a presidential order easing enforcement of an IRS rule that limited religious organizations’ political activity. The Justice Department on Tuesday asked a federal judge to dismiss a lawsuit filed in May by a Wisconsin-based atheist group. The Freedom From Religion Foundation argues President Donald Trump’s order is unconstitutional because it grants preferential treatment to religious organizations while secular groups must still abide by the law. …

    So, just by changing back the definition of what constitutes full time employment, President Trump can essentially eradicate, as in destroy, the employer mandate portion of ObamaCare --and there's not much Congress can do about it. Unlike Republican members of Congress, Trump can use his pen to fundamentally transform ObamaCare. The Affordable Health Care for America Act (ObamaCare) forces businesses to provide health insurance largely via the employer mandate. The Obama regime had the IRS define a full time employee as follows:

    Most progressive groups oppose any expression of religion in the public square, and will likely oppose whatever this president does After President Donald Trump issued an executive order on religious freedom last week, the Left used its pre-written script to attack it even though it was dramatically scaled back from the draft that was leaked to left-wing media outlets in February. As if on cue, the Rev. Barry Lynn, president of Americans United for the Separation of Church and State, pounced, claiming the executive order “tramples” and “guts” the entire notion of religious freedom.
