    Advice for Trump: Revise U.S. Military Manuals Corrupted by Obama’s Pentagon One of President Donald James Trump’s and Secretary of Defense James “Mad Dog” Mattis’ primary endeavors should be to rollback the damage done to the Pentagon’s military manuals, curricula for training of officers and enlisted men, and the other material compromised by eight-years of political correctness seeping into the military. As part of former President Barack Obama’s mission to “win the hearts and minds” of people who despise the United States of America, including those who live in the U.S., the Pentagon released new military manuals that pleased groups...
  • RNC Releases New Video – Pushes Rule Change to Help Party Elites Steal Nomination

    The Republican Party released a brokered convention video today with Sean Cairncross, RNC Chief Operating Officer. Cairncross tries to persuade viewers that the convention rules need to change this year and that they necessarily change from convention to convention. But maybe you still don’t understand why’s all this necessary? Why can’t the rules stay the same for each convention? Listen, if you were a delegate you wouldn’t want to be governed by the rules of past conventions. There’s no reason that the rules that governed Romney’s delegates should be used to govern you. After all, this is a new convention...
  • Bipartisan Anger in Congress over Obama's UN Move [Rex Lex]

    Israel National News ^ | 7/21/2015 | Gil Ronen
    Republican lawmakers – but some influential Democrats as well – were angry Monday about the Obama administration's decision to have the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) vote on the Iran nuclear deal before Congress has had a chance to accept or reject it. The unanimous UNSC vote in favor of the Iran Monday deal came just hours after the State Department formally sent the agreement to Congress to be reviewed. Rep. Eliot Engel (NY), the top Democrat on the Foreign Affairs Committee, joined panel Chairman Ed Royce (R-Calif) in a statement that said they were “disappointed” that the UNSC voted...

    An immigration overhaul may not have enough GOP support to pass the House, but the idea has found some Republican support in Illinois. Former Speaker J. Dennis Hastert, R-Ill., is slated to join a number of prominent Illinois Republicans and CEOs on Tuesday to call on GOP leaders to pass a national immigration overhaul. Republican Reps. Aaron Schock and Adam Kinzinger are also scheduled to give video testimonials on the subject.
  • Dear FCC: Rethink The Vague "General Conduct" Rule

    we are deeply concerned that the FCC’s new rules will include a provision that sounds like a recipe for overreach and confusion: the so-called “general conduct rule.” According to the FCC's own "Fact Sheet," the proposed rule will allow the FCC to review (and presumably punish) non-neutral practices that may “harm” consumers or edge providers.

    Republican political strategist Karl Rove accused the Obama administration of "hypocrisy" Wednesday, charging that a proposed change in IRS rules regarding nonprofit organizations is aimed at gagging conservative activists. "This is clearly an attempt by the administration to discourage conservative groups," the former deputy chief of staff to President George W. Bush said on "Fox & Friends." "I think it's hypocrisy," he said.

    Stay-at-home mums cooking lunch for the children while dads earn the money—Germans’ opinions on gender roles are more conservative today than they were in the 1990s, a survey revealed on Monday. Today just under half of women (48 percent) could imagine their husband taking a step back in his career to enable them to further their own, the Tagesspiegel reported. Back in 1993, the number was 54 percent who thought such a thing likely. Men have also hardened their views, with today 40 percent said they could see themselves putting a dent in their career to help their partners, while...

    Washington (CNN) - White House Press Secretary Jay Carney on Friday continued to defend the rule in the national health care law that may end up forcing millions of Americans from their health insurance. Carney's defense of the law comes amid revelations that a grand total of six Americans signed up for Obamacare coverage on the first day the online exchanges went live October 1, according to internal notes provided to the Republican-controlled House Oversight and Government Reform Committee.

    Washington Times ^ | Updated: 3:49 p.m. on Tuesday, September 3, 2013 | By Stephen Dinan
    Secretary of State John F. Kerry refused Tuesday to rule out putting U.S. troops on the ground in Syria, saying the president needs to retain the ability to send in forces in very select circumstances as the Obama administration officially began to make its case for retaliatory military strikes on the Assad regime. Testifying to the Senate, Mr. Kerry accused critics of “armchair isolationism” and said there are risks to acting, but that the risks of inaction are even worse. But asked whether President Obama would accept an authorization from Congress that specifically banned putting U.S. troops on the ground...

    The Kansas City Star ^ | 5/27/13 | DAVE HELLING
    The Kansas Legislature continues to grind toward a tax agreement today. It’s tempting to snicker at the chambers’ inability to actually pass a budget after working at it for three months, but we should cut lawmakers some slack. Remaking an entire state takes time. Much has been made of the continuing gridlock in our national government, brought on largely by the polarized nature of our two major political parties. Divided national government, in our time, is a recipe for dysfunction. But a much different dynamic is playing out in state governments. There, one-party control is becoming the norm. According to...

    The Daily Caller ^ | 04/10/2013 5:12 PM | none stated
    The latest partisan slugfest to take place in the Democratic-held Colorado legislature is shaping up to be about election reform, with Democrats preparing to introduce a bill mandating that every registered voter be allowed to cast a ballot by mail and allowing new voters to register through Election Day. After a brief lull in partisan bickering that has dominated the legislative session — mostly over gun control — battle lines are again being drawn, with Republicans described by the Durango Herald as “livid” over the proposed legislation. Republican Secretary of State Scott Gessler — who sued two Democratic-majority counties before...

    National Review ^ | 2/13/2013 | Neal Freeman
    The Buckley Rule has been much invoked in recent weeks, in this space and elsewhere, and on almost every occasion it has been both misquoted and misapplied. As one who was present at the formulation, I feel obliged to record the “originalist” intention. It was the winter of 1964 and the unresolved question at NR editorial meetings, week to week, was this: Whom should the magazine support for the Republican presidential nomination? To outsiders, the question would have seemed all but settled. Issue by issue, NR gave every appearance of being all in for Barry Goldwater. Heck, there were those...

    Business Insider ^ | 10/02/12 | Erin Fuchs
    Here's The Massachusetts Law License Rule Elizabeth Warren Probably BrokeErin Fuchs | 20 minutes ago **SNIP** So, what does the rule for lawyers in Massachusetts say? Well, like most laws, it's open to interpretation, but it appears Warren might have at least severely bent the rule. The rule says lawyers without a license in Massachusetts can practice there "on a temporary basis," especially if they're working on cases with attorneys who are licensed in the state. Still, it's not clear that Warren was practicing law on just a temporary basis since she was heavily involved in a number of cases...

    The HIll ^ | 8/21/2012 | Zack Colman
    The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) delivered a blow to the petroleum industry Monday by denying a petition that would have exempted refiners from part of a biofuel blending mandate, according to documents obtained by The Hill. EPA shot down the American Petroleum Institute’s (API) challenge of the renewable fuel standard (RFS), according to Monday court filings with the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia. EPA determined that enough advanced biofuels – generally understood to be made from non-food products – existed to meet that portion of the RFS for 2012.

    Looking for Cash, Congress Finds Some in a Corporate Pension Rule TweakBy MARY WILLIAMS WALSH Published: June 28, 2012 Lawmakers looking for money to finance low-cost student loans and fix aging highways have found about $20 billion in an unlikely place: company pension funds. Pension funds are not exactly brimming over with extra money. In 2006, Congress was concerned enough about bolstering them to pass legislation closing loopholes and making companies set money aside more quickly. But the highway bill that Congress is rushing to complete by Friday contains a measure that would let companies slow their pension contributions again....

    Wall Street Journal ^ | May 11, 2012 | VICTORIA MCGRANE And KRISTINA PETERSON
    Regulators have a July deadline to finish the rule, but officials have said it appears unlikely they will meet it. The October draft rule issued by the Fed, the Securities and Exchange Commission and other regulators permits what is known as "portfolio hedging," or buying and selling in order to reduce the risk of a portfolio of securities held at the bank. Messrs. Merkley and Levin say regulators inserted a "loophole" into the rule's draft. The Dodd-Frank law says banks can conduct hedging activities related to "individual or aggregated positions." It is unclear whether that includes buying or selling to...
