  • Trump Releases His First Budget Blueprint: Here Are The Winners And Losers

    Zero Hedge ^ | 03/16/17 | Tyler Durden
    In a proposal with many losers, the Environmental Protection Agency and State Department stand out as targets for the biggest spending reductions. Funding would disappear altogether for 19 independent bodies that count on federal money for public broadcasting, the arts and regional issues from Alaska to Appalachia. Trump's budget outline is a bare-bones plan covering just "discretionary" spending for the 2018 fiscal year starting on Oct. 1. It is the first volley in what is expected to be an intense battle over spending in coming months in Congress, which holds the federal purse strings and seldom approves presidents' budget plans....

    Would someone please help me understand why the losers keep trying to tell the winners how to run things? I didn't think life ran that way. If a man applies for the job and he is one of three applicants and does NOT get the job, he does not have the authority to ask for anything to be done from that position. If two military units go to battle, the losers do not tell the winners how they want to be treated. If two football teams play a game and one side wins, the losers do not have the authority...

    The Daily Beast ^ | 12/8/2016 | Rick Wilson
    If you’re wondering if the new normal in American politics includes a president-elect rage-tweeting at companies he dislikes, engaging in near-daily hissy-fits over media coverage he finds insufficiently obsequious, and engaging in constant social media warfare over slights to his ego, you’d be right. Witness the emerging gangster capitalism of Donald Trump. No one has felt much genuine shock that Donald Trump refuses to divest his control over his empire in a real, legally binding way. Only a fool would believe Trump would draw a sharp, bright line between his personal and family financial interests and the interests of the...

    One week after a political asteroid struck the Earth and became America’s president-elect, the skies have cleared enough that we can see who will reign in the post-apocalyptic new order. Republicans now stand supreme over the national terrain, dominating both houses of Congress, the Oval Office and, soon, the Supreme Court. The Democrats have been reduced to a tattered band of rebels, struggling for turf even in blue refuges like New York. Who lost the most in the fires of last Tuesday? And who will become the overlords of the Empire State? Read on. LOSERS: 1. Anthony Weiner..... It’s a...

    This is simple. If some are so sure who has the momentum and will get the Republican convention, put your money (donation to FR) where your mouth is. Personally, I would set this bet at $100 as fair game, but I think some are also suffering under the Obama "recovery" so I think a $40 bet in more fair. Here would be the bet. Pick who you think will get the Republican nomination below by responding BET (name) in upper case. If your choice does NOT get the nomination then you donate $40 dollars to FreeRepublic.com support donation. What do...
  • Top Ted Cruz Activist Jumps Ship Joins Donald Trump Campaign

    UPSTATE SOCIAL CONSERVATIVE CITES IMMIGRATION ISSUE Michelle Wiles – one of the Palmetto State’s most influential conservative activists – is leaving the South Carolina leadership team of Ted Cruz and joining the campaign of Donald Trump, sources close to both campaigns told us this week. The Upstate social conservative – widely known and respected in evangelical circles – had been one of Cruz’s most articulate, well-connected South Carolina supporters. Now her support will go to “The Donald.” If this scenario sounds familiar, it should … This isn’t the first time an influential female Cruz supporter has gone over to Trump’s...

    resident Obama's reaction to the horrible terrorist attacks in Paris has been strange - and disturbing. Instead of rallying the country and calling for the United States to lead the fight to wipe out the Islamic State, what did he do first? He took pot shots at Republicans for their reluctance to open our borders to thousands of Syrian refugees. He even said some Republicans were helping ISIS recruit new fighters by suggesting that the United States should give preference to Christian refugees over Muslims. We're stuck with Obama and his failed leadership for another 13 months. Meanwhile, we'll have...

    Texas Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) will meet with fellow GOP contender Donald Trump on Wednesday at Trump’s campaign headquarters, New York City’s Trump Tower. Cruz, the first Republican to declare a run for the presidency, will step onto Trump’s territory in Manhattan and is visiting Trump, not the other way around. As the Washington Post notes, the two candidates are on friendly terms and both take a strong, popular stand against mass illegal immigration. According to a Suffolk University/USA Today poll, Trump leads the field, with 17 percent of Republicans and independents surveyed saying he’s their first choice for the...

    In the next few days I’ll rate the 8 leading GOP candidates for the 2016 Nomination as reported by RealClearPolitics on 6 August 2015. I will rate four criteria; potential to change our nation, electability, personal integrity, and past performance. I will score them from 0 to 3. The ratings will be color-coded as follows. Blue = Excellent (3 pts) – Implies candidate is solidly better than most of the GOP and all of the Dems. Green = Good (2 pts) – Implies candidate is better than GOP average and probably all Dems. Yellow = Low Pass (1 pt) –...

    This is a great week for moving-van operators in D.C. Hundreds of Democrat solons and their considerable staffs are going to find out if you really can go home again as they desperately, and probably futilely, scramble to find slots in lobbying firms and in what is ridiculously dubbed “public interest” outfits to stay here. The AFL-CIO and Dem moneybags Tom Steyer collectively blew almost 100 million dollars trying to retain power for their pals .One wonders how much more they will feed into the maw of these losers. The tills of the countless Democratic tax-exempt front groups must be...

    Non-Profit Quarterly ^ | October 9, 2013 | By Rick Cohen
    The fate of the Affordable Care Act, notwithstanding obstructionism by the Republicans and the nine House Democrats, depends strongly on the success of efforts to get uninsured people to enroll for health insurance. First and foremost in making this happen are the navigators. There’s no reason to let the Obama administration off the hook for its own responsibility in making the work of the navigators tough, what with navigator grants that were announced only in August with training materials issued in September for the October 1st start-up of the exchanges, not to mention embarrassing computer glitches. Since the nonprofit sector...

    Jimmie Johnson held off Dale Earnhardt Jr. at the wire on Sunday, taking the checkered flag in the 2013 Daytona 500. Earnhardt Jr. finished second, running out of room as he tried to chase down Johnson on the last lap. Danica Patrick, who ran in the top-10 all day, finished eighth after losing ground on the last lap. The Daytona 500 started slow enough, with drivers content to wait things out in the early going. A wreck on lap 32 was our first real action of the day as numerous cars got caught up in the mess, leading to the...

    Urooj Khan had sworn off playing the lottery after he took an Islamic pilgrimage to the Middle East in 2010, but as he stood in a 7-Eleven near his home on Chicago's Far North Side this summer, he lost his will for a moment, handing over $60 to buy two instant-game tickets. After scratching off the second ticket, he leaped in the air, shouting over and over again, "I hit a million!" When Khan, 46, accepted an oversized check from Illinois Lottery representatives days later at the same store with his wife and teenage daughter at his side, he spoke...

    WASHINGTON, D.C. — While 529 hardworking athletes proudly represent the United States in the 2012 Olympics, any medals and money they earn wearing red, white and blue will be taxed by the IRS. According to research done by the Americans for Tax Reform Foundation, U.S. Olympic athletes are liable to pay income tax on medals earned and prizes received at the London games. American medalists face a top income tax rate of 35 percent. Under U.S. tax law, they must add the value of their Olympic medals and prizes to their taxable income. It is therefore easy to calculate...

Chelsea Kane and Hines Ward were leading the judges' scores coming into the final night, but Kirstie Alley was close behind. It was a star-studded finale, featuring guest appearances by Sara Evans, the Black-Eyed Peas and the first televised performance by The Go-Gos in five years. But it was the finalists that people were tuning in to see. !!SPOILER ALERT!! Kane and Mark Ballas...
