    The Sun ePaper ^ | February 18, 2018
    WASHINGTON: The US Commerce Department has recommended that President Donald Trump impose steep curbs on steel and aluminium imports from China and other countries ranging from global and country-specific tariffs to broad import quotas, according to proposals released on Friday. China’s Commerce Ministry responded by saying the report was “baseless” and did not accord with the facts, and that China would take necessary steps to protects its interests if the final decision affects China.

    So while this article itself is old, the issue is not. In the Mass Legislature HB 388 is a real bill that would give illegal immigrants the right to vote in local elections. Here are the Democrats listed as Co-Sponsors - there are probably more Democrats that support this bill but are not co-sponsors. Rep. Byron Rushing [D] Rep. Denise Provost [D] Rep.

  • Should We Reform the Electoral College?

    Cato Institute ^ | March/April 2013 | Robert A. Levy
    Article II of the Constitution gives states broad authority to decide how their electoral votes are selected and divided among the candidates. In 48 states, the candidate who gets the most votes wins all of the state’s electoral votes. But the Constitution doesn’t require that rule. Maine and Nebraska have implemented district- by-district voting. One electoral vote goes to the winner in each congressional district, and the remaining two electoral votes are awarded to the winner of the statewide popular vote. Assume, however, that a state enacts a law giving all its electoral votes to the presidential candidate who wins...

    WASHINGTON – House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) called House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) a “stooge for the White House” due to his staff preparing a classified memo that reportedly alleges a controversial dossier was inappropriately used to renew a surveillance warrant against Trump campaign aide Carter Page. “The speaker has appointed somebody who's totally irresponsible, politicizing the process and really it should not be happening. For example, right now he's talking about releasing a document, releasing a document that is predicated on another document, that was put together on the basis of total misrepresentation. It's like the...

    To no surprise to anyone multiple news sites are reporting that the Democrat State Senate leadership is failing in their duties to execute an impartial and fair investigation into the alleged sexual misconduct allegation that happened on and around Beacon Hill. Some of the alleged victims to the husband of Senate President Rosenburg think that the system and investigation is rigged to return the Senate President to power. This is shocking. Here is a quote: “There’s no way I would come forward,” Abraham quoted one of them as saying. “This is an investigation to clear Stan Rosenberg’s name. It’s not...

    Edward Fish For Senate I have recently decided to run for one of New Mexico’s seats in the US Congress. Why should I be interested in supporting you? My platform is very simple, consisting of only two or three* points: Constitutionalism: The Constitution for the United States should be treated as the supreme law of the land. Justice: Having a Just government is imperative not only to the peace and stability of the country, but to the legitimacy of the government itself. Anti-Corruption: It seems to me that a great many of our laws are optimized to foster and facilitate...

    National Review ^ | 1-2-2018 | Fred Bauer
    Areas ripe for politically popular reform are infrastructure, health care, guest-worker programs, and finance. In 2017, Republicans used the following combination for domestic governance: Try to pass entirely conventional Republican legislation, such as the tax reform passed in December, while President Trump stoked cultural feuds (with Democrats, the media, the NFL, etc.) and issued executive orders. Based on the approval ratings of both the president and Congress, and given Congress’s failure to pass any major legislation other than tax reform, this strategy has not been a resounding success. Donald Trump’s victory in the primary was an omen that conventional Republican...

    If you thought President Donald Trump was great in 2017, you ain’t seen nothing yet: wait until Trump 2018, a report from Axios’s Mike Allen on Friday morning argues. Citing multiple sources who have met or spoken recently with the president, Allen reports that those in the know in Washington should expect the “full Trump” in 2018—the president’s upcoming second year. “If you ask some close to President Trump what worries them most about 2018, it’s not Robert Mueller’s probe,” Allen writes under a headline saying to expect Trump to be “unchained” in 2018. “It’s that establishment guardrails of 2017...

    Republican congressmen Trey Gowdy joins former Rep. Jason Chaffetz and Rep. John Ratcliffe to reflect on the last year in Congress on FNC's 'The Ingraham Angle.' Gowdy, as the chairman of the House Oversight Committee, said he strongly supports Paul Ryan as Speaker but his fellow South Carolinian Sen. Tim Scott is the "best person in politics." "He and I are virtually inseparable," Gowdy said. Gowdy and Scott are currently co-writing a book about their "unlikely" friendship. "We have different views on some pretty serious issues, but we have just chosen to have a friendship some would call unlikely because...

    The former chairman of the National Republican Congressional Committee cautioned today that his party is "whistling past the political graveyard" if not concerned about midterm elections. So far, 27 House GOP incumbents have declared that they're not seeking re-election, compared to 15 Democrats. "When the American people give you a majority, the control of the House, the Senate and the presidency, they expect you to do something with it," Rep. Tom Cole (R-Okla.) told CNN, saying the party racked up "minor" wins until a major score with tax reform. "And I think over time that will help us a great...

    Will President Trump face a challenge from within his own party in 2020? Arizona Sen. Jeff Flake (R) seems to think so. On Sunday, Flake told ABC’s “This Week” that if the president did not change his approach, he “is going to leave a huge swath of voters looking for someone else.” Flake, a frequent Trump critic, added that the president is “probably inviting a Republican challenge.” Any challenger to Trump would face enormous hurdles. The president remains popular among Republican voters, even as he endures historically low approval numbers at large. In most polls, around 80 percent of GOP...

    Had several ROBO calls over the past two days from 704-935-5630, Kannapolis, NC identifying themselves as Young Republicans. They were soliciting donations. This is an exchange in the Charlotte NC area. I do not live near there. I think it was a scam as the woman was very rude on the phone as I explained that after Alabama I only give directly to the candidate, not to the Party. Is this even legal?
