    The following statement was solicited and then aired, along with the thoughts of others, via the nationwide “Connecting the Dots” radio program on November 22, 2016. We were asked what advice would we give to incoming President of the United States Donald Trump.Mr. Trump, I suggest that you add to your goal of making America great again the following statement: “America became great, not because of what government did, but because of what government was prevented from doing by the U.S. Constitution.”You should consider that, were the Constitution fully adhered to, the federal government would shrink to 20 percent its...
  • Trump gets chance to remake the courts

    The Hill ^ | December 4, 2016
    President-elect Donald Trump has a chance to stack the courts with conservative judges, thrilling Republicans who suddenly have the opportunity to remake the judicial system. Conservatives watched with dismay as Congress confirmed 327 of President Obama’s judicial nominees, fearing it would further entrench liberal control of the courts. Now the tables have turned. Trump could come into office with around 117 judicial vacancies to fill, and unlike Obama in his first term, will need only 51 votes in the Senate to confirm his nominees.

    Firearms enthusiasts who embraced Donald Trump’s campaign and his full-throated support of the Second Amendment are expecting a sweeping expansion of gun rights under his administration and a Congress firmly in Republican hands. Among their priorities: eliminating gun-free zones at schools, reducing requirements for background checks and ensuring that concealed carry handgun permits from one state are recognized everywhere in the U.S. “This is our historic moment to go on offense and to defeat the forces that have aligned against our freedom once and for all,” Wayne LaPierre, chief executive of the National Rifle Association, said in a video after...

    STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. - When Staten Island's seat in Congress becomes vacant, Assemblywoman Nicole Malliotakis will be the first to jump at it. Passed over last year in favor of then-District Attorney Daniel Donovan as the GOP candidate in a special election, Malliotakis is just as eager now to run for the House of Representatives, she indicated in a recent interview. The May 2015 special election saw Donovan elected to fill the remainder of Michael Grimm's term -- he had resigned in disgrace after pleading guilty to tax evasion.

    Just like the “recount” is a naked attempt to discredit Trump’s victory, this “smart take” is a deliberate deception designed to keep the unshowered angry. The Nation magazine put it this way, “The preliminary count had Democratic Senate candidates gathering 46.2 million votes to 39.3 million for Republican candidates.” That and $2.50 will get you a cup of coffee from the aforementioned unshowered, probably with earlobes stretched to the size of Frisbees and an impromptu lecture on the “justice” of fair trade coffee beans.But it’s a fraud.Those numbers aren’t a lie, per se, but how the left is using...

    When the modern Tea Party movement coalesced in the early days of the Obama presidency, its allusion to the political grievances of the protesters in Boston Harbor a couple of hundred years earlier seemed plausible enough: Its members felt that their taxes were too high and their interests not adequately represented by the remote authorities in Washington. But the election of 2016 presents a challenge to that historical lineage. The home states to the Tea Party are actually doing great on the taxation and representation front. It’s the progressive blue states that should be protesting. Start with the Electoral College....

    U.S. Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, the former prisoner of war who’s accused of endangering comrades by walking off his post in Afghanistan, is asking President Barack Obama to pardon him before leaving office. White House and Justice Department officials on Saturday said Bergdahl had submitted copies of the clemency request seeking leniency. If granted by Obama, it would allow Bergdahl to avert a court-martial trial scheduled for April where he faces charges of desertion and misbehavior before the enemy, the latter of which carries a maximum penalty of life in prison. …

    Yesterday a federally registered nonprofit election entity launched a fundraiser to cover the court costs of a lawsuit it intended to file in the name of forcing a statewide recount in the narrowly decided state of Florida. The attorney fees were fully crowdfunded within a matter of hours. And today the attorney in question announced that he has officially filed the lawsuit in question, creating at least some possibility that a Florida recount may happen. Florida state law prohibits any candidate from requesting a recount, meaning that third party candidate Jill Stein cannot force a recount in the state even...

Starting next month, the people are going to get what they asked for. We are going to build the wall. Period.

Joanna Duka and Breanna Koski, owners of Brush & Nib Studio in Phoenix, lost a case at trial level which accused them of violating a local ordinance that protects homosexuals from discrimination, Fox News reported. The ordinance also prevents the business owners from publicly explaining their convictions or even defending their decision lest they face jail time for that as well.

    If President-elect Donald Trump decides to make good on his campaign pledge to "load up" the prison camp in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, with new domestic terror suspects caught in the US -- including American citizens -- legal experts say he is asking for an unprecedented constitutional showdown. Voters first received a peek at Trump's stance on Guantanamo Bay back in 2015 when talking points on various policy questions were leaked ahead of a Republican debate. On the issue of whether he would close the detention facility, the memo stated: "No. I would also take away the passports of Americans who...

El Universal reported Monday that the equivalent of 1.5 percent of Haiti’s population had immigrated to the Mexican state. Haitians receive amnesty through Temporary Protected Status and thousands who have migrated to Mexico have hoped to take advantage of this benefit or receive asylum. Jeh Johnson, secretary of the Department of Homeland Security, announced recently that removals of Haitians to their home country will be resumed. They had been suspended following Hurricane Matthew’s October...

    Specifically, $1 billion would provide "cash and medical expenses and social services" for illegals and refugees. Another $2.82 billion would fund the care of youths flooding across the border in historic numbers. "HHS is experiencing the highest number of unaccompanied children in care and the largest footprint of funded capacity in the program's history, and flows of unaccompanied children have continued to grow over the last months," said the administration's documents. That increase, which has shocked many immigration critics on Capitol Hill, is far more than the $1.4 billion increase the administration sought for veterans health care in the Fiscal...

Use of “The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn" and “To Kill a Mockingbird” were suspended after a parent raised concerns about their use of the N-word. “There's so much racial slurs and defensive wording in there that you can't get past that,” the mother said during last month’s school board meeting. “Right now, we are a nation divided as it is."

Reason for the panic -- the dawning realization, repressed and often unrecognized though it may be, that Donald Trump may even a be a good president, possibly a great one. Then what? If anything could cause panic among liberals, progressives, and the media (apologies for the redundancy), that's it. And Trump has certainly hit the ground running with more "vigah" -- this time to channel an...

    It is going to take years to break through the false constructs of radical left-wing economic principles which have been sold by modern academia and corporate media. However, eventually people will recognize once again that being allowed to keep their own money, the outcome of their own labor, is not an expense on government.

    President-elect Donald Trump has chosen retired Marine Gen. James N. Mattis to be secretary of defense, nominating a former senior military officer who led operations across the Middle East to run the Pentagon less than four years after he hung up his uniform, according to people familiar with the decision.

    Progressive senator ignores facts and common sense in asserting America wants Democratic agenda Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), whose party is at one of the weakest positions it has been in more than a century, grasped at straws this week in trying to argue the Republicans lack a mandate to govern. The liberal firebrand’s speech on the Senate floor on Monday night got a fair amount of attention for its attacks on a Republican-backed medical research bill that she lambasted as a giveaway to big pharmaceutical companies. Less noticed was Warren’s argument that a party that won the White House and...

    When I write about gun control, I generally make two arguments. First, criminals are lawbreakers, so the notion that they will be disarmed because of gun control is a fantasy [1]. Crooks and thugs who really want a gun will always have access [2] to black-market weapons. Second, to the extent that good people obey bad gun-control laws (and hopefully they won’t [3]), that will encourage more criminal activity since bad people will be less worried [4] about armed resistance. These points are common sense, but they doesn’t seem to convince many leftists, who have a religious-type faith that good...

    ‘Marriage equality is vulnerable’ under Donald Trump’s presidency, says nephew of gay rights activist Harvey Milk. Stuart Milk warned of ‘dark days ahead’ due to a rise in anti-gay rhetoric spurred on by the US election of Trump and Vice President-elect Mike Pence, who supports gay conversion therapy. The nephew of Harvey Milk, who was the first openly gay person to be elected in public office in California and was assassinated 38 years ago, was speaking exclusively to the Standard on his disappointment that friend Hillary Clinton lost out to Trump. He said: “It was very tough, but having been...

    So, while we understand the heartfelt and strongly-held opinions on both sides of the gun debate, it is with the safety and security of our employees and customers in mind that we respectfully ask people not to bring firearms into our stores, offices or facilities, even in states where it’s permitted by law. Of course, authorized members of law enforcement are an exception.

    Muslims working in the State Department, Defense Department, and intelligence agencies like the CIA wonder if, with the election of Donald Trump, they should quit their jobs. The employees are on edge about everything from retaining their security clearances to the possibility of discriminatory treatment under Trump, whose top aides include known peddlers of conspiracy theories about Islamists infiltrating the U.S. government. "I feel apprehensive," a Muslim intelligence official told POLITICO. "I fear that – whatever white power movement or equivalent all of a sudden feels empowered by the president-elect, whatever tidbits of that community make their way into...
