  • Not News: Tax-Cut 'Crumbs' Were a Big Deal to Pelosi and Dems in 2011-2012

    On Thursday, House Democratic Party Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi characterized as "crumbs" the bonuses of $1,000 or more, pay raises of up to $3 per hour, and other benefits well over 100 companies have showered on over 2 million employees as a result of December's tax law passage. Given their track record, there's no reason to believe that the establishment press will report Pelosi's condescending remarks — or that they will remind their audience that in 2011 and 2012, the Obama administration and Democrats in Congress treated the prospect of workers losing $40 every other week in their paychecks as...

    Democratic warnings that President Trump would make life worse for minorities were discredited once again Friday, with the release of new unemployment statistics for December. In just under one year in office, the president and the Republican Congress have helped minorities make dramatic gains. Since taking the reins from President Obama, President Trump and the GOP-controlled Congress have embraced free-market and pro-liberty economic policies. Now – after a year of reducing regulations, approving a tax cut, and encouraging stricter standards for numerous welfare programs at the state level – the economy is thriving. Working-age minorities are benefitting in ways they...
  • Dr. Media examining Trump? Why not examine Obama instead?

    Many in the media along with other Democrats say Trump is mentally incompetent and needs his head examined. I believe that the people who actually need their heads examined are Obama and all the journalists and Democrats who supported him, no matter what he did. Obama was paranoid, delusional, and a power-hungry autocrat who didn't care about equal justice, his oath to enforce laws, the Constitution, economic opportunity for all, or the safety of the people. ParanoidObama wiretapped James Rosen, threw Dinesh D'Souza in jail, and spied on Sharyl Attkisson. If you were an opponent of Obama, you weren't safe....

    trillion during the eight years of Barack Obama’s presidency. Little was said about this phenomenal growth at the time, and even less was done about it. Of course, now that the Republicans are in charge and have had the audacity to cut taxes, the horror of the deficit is once again a topic of conversation among the chattering classes. Even so, no one has offered a viable solution to the problem, and no one ever will. The conventional wisdom says that this is so largely because the consequences of curtailing the deficit are immediate, while the consequences of not curtailing...

    RUSH: Now, look, I know this is saying something, but here it is. Today more than ever, more than ever, more than at any time in the last three years it is abundantly clear and over-the-top evident that very few people inside Washington, in the establishment, inside the Beltway in American politics have the slightest idea who Donald Trump is. It has never been more obvious that they are incapable, even if they wanted to understand Donald Trump, I don’t think it’s possible. I don’t think the kind of people we are talking about have the ability to understand someone...

    Barack Obama will no doubt be chronicled, among other things, as the first anti-American president. No wonder; he’s the product of an educational system that has become increasingly radical and anti-American with each passing decade, and his mother was a stereotypical leftist anthropologist with a passion for the Third World. The pattern is unmistakable. As Luis Fleischman notes, Obama wanted to make deals with our enemies, Iran being the most dramatic example. But just look at Latin America: The Obama Administration tried to avoid confrontations with anyone it wanted to make a “historic deal” with. Most of these “historic deals”...

    Rep. Maxine Waters, D-Calif., once falsely accused President Ronald Reagan's CIA of all but causing urban cocaine dealing in the '80s. She claimed that Reagan, by working with Nicaraguan drug dealers to defeat the communists running that country, colluded with them to created the urban drug epidemic. Never mind that The New York Times, The Washington Post and the Los Angeles Times all debunked Waters' claim. At a town hall meeting about these allegations, Waters shouted, "If I never do anything else in this career as a member of Congress, I'm gonna make somebody pay for what they've done to...

    The media seems curiously uninterested in the latest Obama administration bombshell. This past week, Politico published a report that President Obama helped derail an investigation into a drug trafficking ring waged by Hezbollah in order to protect his nuclear deal with Iran. The effort, entitled Project Cassandra, began in 2008 following evidence from the Drug Enforcement Administration. Investigators went under cover to track the alleged drug and weapons trafficking but were slowed by White House officials who were dragging their feet. In their pursuit to ease tensions with Iran, the Obama administration "let Hezbollah off the hook."Politico's reporting was both...

    Oh sure, the Fake News Media (in Castro’s pocket since 1957) went berserk with gratification and joy, hailing the December 17th 2014 diplomatic disgrace with Stalinist Cuba as an “opening!” a “landmark!” a diplomatic milestone!” a “legacy-builder!” blah…blah…blah…In fact, that infamous date marks a whimpering U.S. surrender to a terrorist regime that had kidnapped a U.S. hostage named Alan Gross. The snickering Cuban terrorists then dangled their hostage in front of the whimpering Obama, offering to exchange him upon the freeing and return to Stalinist Cuba of multi-convicted Castroite spy/terrorist/murderer (of American citizens) Gerardo Hernandez and his accomplices.This blackmail by the...

    They wanted him dead. For years, a clandestine U.S. intelligence team had tracked a man they knew was high in the leadership of al Qaeda — an operative some believed had a hand in plotting the gruesome 2009 suicide attack in Afghanistan that killed seven CIA officers. Their pursuit was personal, and by early 2014, according to a source directly involved in the operation, the agency had the target under tight drone surveillance. “We literally had a bead on this guy’s head and just needed authorization from Washington to pull the trigger,” said the source. Then something unexpected happened. While...

    Only someone who worked in Hillary Clinton’s State Department and thought giving ISIS summer jobs would stop their beheadings and terrorist attacks could dispute Josh Meyer’s lengthy, well-researched article in Politico detailing “how Obama let Hezbollah off the hook” by undermining his own government’s efforts to take down the terrorist group’s drug trafficking operations: “I was part of the negotiating team that got the Iran nuclear deal done,” the former Obama State Department spokeswoman told Fox News’ Brian Kilmeade on Tuesday. “Until Politico wrote this piece, I had never even heard of this program.

    Some lawmakers are incensed, but not wholly surprised by this week's bombshell report from Politico that the Obama administration knowingly derailed an anti-Hezbollah investigation because it would have threatened the nuclear deal with Iran. The Drug Enforcement Administration was so convinced that Hezbollah was amassing $1 billion a year from drug and weapons trafficking that it started Project Cassandra in 2008, an under cover investigation, to follow the money. Yet, according to Politico's sources, the Justice and Treasury departments "delayed, hindered or rejected" requests from project members as they sought answers.Rep. Ron DeSantis (R-FL) expected such meddling from the Obama White...

    Like Obamacare, people donÂ’t know whatÂ’s in the Republican tax bill. Unlike Obamacare, theyÂ’re probably going to be pleasantly surprised.The 2018 Democrats, top political analysts inform us, will use the soon-to-be passed tax reform as a way to argue that the GOP is the party of the plutocracy. Which is just another way of saying that Democrats are going to use the same argument theyÂ’ve been using for the past three decades with varying degrees of success. IÂ’m not sure this development should rattle any supporter of rate reductions. Especially if they consider most Americans donÂ’t even know theyÂ’re getting...

    As Congress debates the tax plan, Republicans continue to play defense, especially when it comes to the Democrats’ preposterous idea that under this bill not all Americans will get a tax cut. Given this sad state of affairs, one thing is clear: the Obama administration did such an amazing job of demonizing profits and corporate America that this attitude is still alive and well today. Examples range from former President Barack Obama’s comments about fat cat bankers to the remarks made by former congressional figures Chris Dodd and Barney Frank. Their Dodd-Frank legislation developed burdensome regulations to purge the demons...

    This isn’t getting anywhere near the same amount of oxygen in the news cycle as the Net Neutrality story, but it certainly should be. The National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) under the tenure of Barack Obama was busy handing out all sorts of goodies to the unions which finance most Democratic political campaigns. One particular burr under the collective, conservative saddle was a new “reinterpretation” of rules regarding the obligations of larger corporations who authorize the operation of franchises under their name. I wrote about this back in 2015 when the rule was originally finalized and it was a deplorable...

    Poor President Obama. He doesn’t think he’s getting enough credit for today’s booming economy. Speaking at a conference of mayors in Chicago recently, Mr. Obama said, “We saw the longest streak of job creation in American history by far — a streak that still continues, by the way.” After a dramatic pause, he added: “Thanks, Obama.” Obama has always been excellent at making speeches. But delivering robust growth? Not so much. Certainly not the kind of 3 percent-plus growth the U.S. is enjoying today, which has forced unemployment to a 17-year low. Instead, we saw an extended period of tepid...

    It’s not healthy to dwell on the past. But, for the taxpayers across the country, it is important to learn from past mistakes. The continued problems with the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA), aka Stimulus Plan, is a good lesson as to what not to do. The nearly trillion-dollar spending package, passed on a party-line vote in 2009, was supposed to rocket the economy out of the recession. The law funded absurd projects such as a snowmaking facility in Duluth, Minn., math and literacy coaches for North Carolina’s public school teachers, and a $3 million tunnel for turtles in...

    If you're a normal person who pays attention to politics, you'd be forgiven for thinking that Washington can't decide whether deficits are bad or not. Well, I have one easy trick that will help you make sense of it all. In Washington, when you hear people complain that this or that piece of legislation will "explode" the deficit, what they are really telling you is that they don't like the legislation. It's really that simple. Good legislation, like good food, movies, novels and pretty much everything else except for dogs (they're all good), is in the eye of the beholder....
