  • The Top Four Obama Policies Trump Has Reversed

    PJ Media ^ | 05/11/2018 | Matt Margolis
    Fulfilling a campaign promise, earlier this week Donald Trump officially withdrew the United States from the Obama-era nuclear deal with Iran, calling it “one of the worst and most one-sided transactions the United States has ever entered into.” For critics of the deal who recognized its flaws and did not turn a blind eye to evidence Iran was violating the terms of the agreement, this was welcome news a long time coming. Trump fulfilled his promise, and the days of kowtowing to terror-sponsoring regimes are behind us.Naturally, Obama administration alums are throwing hissy fits. Obama himself released a statement...

    Sixteen Republican congressmen are asking the General Services Administration (GSA) to reevaluate a $700 billion contract with Citibank as a result of the the financial institution’s “anti-Second Amendment policies.”The congressmen, led by Indiana Rep. Todd Rokita, sent a letter to GSA Administrator Emily Murphy on Wednesday, asking her to terminate the contract in response to Citibank’s March announcement restricting its clients participation in gun sales.“In 2017, the General Services Administration (GSA) awarded Citibank a contract of more than $700 billion to partially implement the federal charge card program, SmartPay 3,” the congressmen wrote in the letter, a copy of which was obtained by The...

    RUSH: Folks, do not doubt me. They think they have won the House in 2018. They hate Trump and so they think everybody else does. The reasons they hate Trump, they think, are the reasons everybody else hates Trump. They hate Republicans and they think they have succeeded with their buddies in the media in making everybody else hate Republicans. They think the Virginia gubernatorial election is the sign that the country has admitted its mistake and is ready now to get back to normal and elect Democrats to run Washington, D.C. So they have made this assumption. They want...
  • Here’s How Germany is Dealing with Angela Merkel’s Failed Immigration Policies

    It’s an undeniable fact that Germany’s chancellor Angela Merkel, also known as Mutti Merkel (Mother of Refugees), is one of the persons accountable for European Union’s (failed) open borders policies. The thing is, back in 2015, Chancellor Merkel took the decision to open-wide Germany’s borders and allowed over one million (nobody knows the exact figure) so-called refugees to enter the country. Basically, Germany invited millions of “refugees” from all over the world (the Middle East, Africa et al) by opening its borders back in 2015, while suspending immigration control for migrants. And now, after terrorism and criminality became rampant, Germany...

  • Why Should Taxes be Used to Pay for Ideological Policies?

    IWB ^ | Mark Angelides
    Everyone’s view on taxation is different. Whether you believe that taxing income is wrong or that it is a citizen’s duty to pay their fair share, the fact remains that almost no one can agree on where those tax dollars should be spent. When a Party stands for election, they give broad statements of intention and a wish list of policies that will need to be negotiated through the branches of government…but this is the wrong way to elect. In the UK in the 70s, a constituency MP was sued by a voter for not following through with his election...
  • Jeff Sessions Rips Bureaucrats Refusing To Back Trump Policies, Touts Border Security Success

    Attorney General Jeff Sessions joined syndicated Boston radio host Howie Carr on his broadcast Thursday, laying out the new path his Department of Justice is charting in the Trump era. New measures to crack down at the border were of particular focus in light of Sessions’s sweeping announcements in Nogales, Arizona Tuesday. Talk also turned to Sessions’ efforts to rebuild a Justice Department still largely staffed with holdover Obama-era appointees and career civil service employees, most of whom worked under the previous administration. Sessions’ continued crusade against so-called “sanctuary cities” made up the final portion of their conversation. “I’ve been...

    Liberals are ecstatic that a judge in Hawaii is writing immigration policy for the entire country, and that policy is: We have no right to tell anyone that he can’t live in America. (Unless they’re Christians — those guys we can keep out.) As subtly alluded to in the subtitle of Adios, America: The Left’s Plan to Turn Our Country into a Third World Hellhole, the goal of liberals is for the poor of the world to have a constitutional right to come here whenever they want. I can’t help but notice that the Third Worlders aren’t moving to liberals’...
  • Report: Donald Trump’s 2016 TV Ads Promised Policies, Clinton’s Ads Were Personal Attacks

    Donald Trump’s 2016 TV campaign advertisements were far more focused on promised policies than were the ads run by Hillary Clinton’s team, which were far more numerous, negative and narrowly focused on personality claims, says a new report. “Over 60 percent of ads supporting Clinton were solely about candidate characteristics, while only about 25 percent were focused on policy,” said the report, titled “Political Advertising in 2016: The Presidential Election as Outlier?” “This is a huge difference from Trump’s advertising, over 70 percent of which was focused on policy,” said the report, released March 6. “These strategic differences may have...

    In recent news, people have speculated about the challenges President Trump is having with enacting policies such as the tax cut deal, his stimulus plan, and the repeal of Obamacare. This has troubled some Americans and bred concern as to whether or not the President will fulfill the promises he made on the campaign trail. I have complete faith in Mr. Trump. He is an insurmountable leader and winner who has been in business for decades. The President is an expert at cutting deals and producing results ahead of schedule and under budget.

    There is no such thing as ‘shovel ready’ sitting on someone’s shelf waiting to go. With Trump’s construction background, he knows that and after exposure of Obama’s empty ‘shovel ready’ shelf, the Democrats know that. Repairing a creaky infrastructure requires substantial engineering for development of documents that the shovel wielders can bid on which will take a minimum of two to three years to even be bid-ready. These are never done ahead of time because, (a) they are expensive and available money has digging with lane closures etc. as a priority and, (b) why do it for an indefinite future...
  • ‘Feminist’ Snow-Plowing System Brings Stockholm to a Standstill

    12/12/2016 2:21:18 PM PST · by Beowulf9 · 11 replies ^ | November 17, 2016 | Heat Street Staff
    A “feminist” strategy for clearing the roads of snow in Stockholm ended in failure as the city ground to a halt in recent days. A new system, suggested by progressive politicians in the Swedish city, tore up tried and tested snow plow routes and diverted them to areas said to be used more by women. But the inevitable consequence was that other spaces – like main roads – were clogged up for longer, and it became impossible to get around.

    Constituents in my congressional district routinely ask me about the chances of Hillary Clinton being elected President. Hard-working Tennesseans are gravely concerned about what another four years of Obama-like policies will do to our country. They know America is headed in the wrong direction. However, I am convinced that Hillary Clinton will not be elected because she is untrustworthy and ineffective.

    President says in Atlantic interview he cares so deeply about Israel that he's motivated to criticize continued settlement activity, comments from Netanyahu. WASHINGTON -- "Political forces" in Washington seek to provide the government of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu with a rubber stamp for its policies, US President Barack Obama said this week in an interview with the Atlantic magazine. The interview, with the outlet's Jeffrey Goldberg, was published one day before the president is scheduled to address Congregation Adas Israel in Washington, where he is expected to outline his administration's plans to combat a rising tide of anti-Semitism across Europe....

    Obama will take the electoral rejection very personally. He will use the remainder of his term in office to wreak as much damage to prove he is right and the rest of the nation is wrong The Democratic Party that supported President Obama’s agenda for the past six years was dramatically rejected in the midterm elections and the message for the new Republican-controlled Senate and House is to aggressively take action on stalled legislation to improve the economy and address other issues that have suffered neglect. The GOP is going to be up against the revenge Obama will take on...

    Via the Standard, my mental image of Democratic incumbents and their strategists reacting to this clip is of Toht’s face melting off after the Ark is opened in “Raiders.” He’s saying this, mind you, on a day when Mitch McConnell’s Democratic opponent in Kentucky refused to answer a question about whether she voted for him in 2012. A study released a few days ago found that barely more than a third of the Democrats running for Congress this year have expressed support for ObamaCare. The GOP made more noise yesterday about the one-year anniversary of the federal O-Care exchange opening...
