    In a statement released Friday night, President-Elect Donald Trump blasted the CIA over a leaked report that claimed, without evidence of direct involvement, that Russia interfered in the recent presidential election to help elect Trump over rival Hillary Clinton. The leaked CIA report was first reported by the Washington Post Friday evening. Earlier Friday it was reported President Obama had ordered a “full review” due by the end of his presidency on allegations of Russia’s hacking to influence the election.

  • Gov’t Spends $27 Billion Annually On Global Warming — How Much Will Trump Cut?

    dailycaller.com ^ | Dec. 2, 2016 | Andrew Follett
    President-elect Donald Trump said he’s looking to cut back federal global warming programs, which he claims are hurting U.S. competitiveness. He’s got a lot of work ahead of him: Federal agencies plan to spend $27 billion on global warming-related programs next year. The White House reported to House Republicans that 18 federal agencies combined spent about $22 billion on global warming activities in 2013, but defined global warming much more narrowly than the agencies themselves. Federal agencies want to spend $12 billion on global warming programs in 2017, according to Salon, but the left-wing news site only factored in six...

    The Washington Post ^ | 2 Dec, 2016 | Chris Cillizza
    When Donald Trump was elected president three weeks ago, many Democrats -- and even some Republicans -- openly fretted about whom he would pick to be in his Cabinet. Would he appoint only loyalists who affirmed his views? People with zero experience? People no one had ever heard of? With the announcement Thursday of Gen. James Mattis as his pick for secretary of defense, Trump continues to demonstrate that those early worries were way off base. In fact, Trump's Cabinet choices -- and some of his potential choices -- reflect a political savviness that many people haven't been willing to...

    Most building contractors have a goal of finishing their projects in the time specified, with the money budgeted. The closer you get to doing both, the more profitable and the more successful your company will be. The sad truth is, most building companies have a hard time hitting those two very important goals. Why? Because it's extremely difficult. Most construction projects have complexity that is hard to comprehend; the efforts of scheduling, price change, human error, and the cycles it takes to be on time and under budget are mind-boggling. It's not normal for construction companies of all sizes to...

  • Pending Home Sales Edge Higher, Midwest Factories Rev Up

    Pending home sales rose less than expected in October as mortgage rates were rising. Meanwhile, Chicago-area factory activity expanded at its fastest pace in nearly two years in November. Pending home sales rose 0.1% last month, the National Association of Realtors said Wednesday. Economists had expected a 0.8% increase. The index measures contract signings of existing homes. That foreshadows what existing-home sales closings will likely be in a month or two. NAR cited ongoing tight supply of homes for sales for limiting demand. But mortgage rates also were rising.

With one seat on the Supreme Court already vacant and more expected to open up in the next few years as aging justices retire, President-elect Trump — already dubbed the "Nominator-in-Chief" — has great power to shape the future of public sector unionization. If Trump nominates one of the roughly two dozen people he pledged to consider to replace the late Justice Antonin Scalia, it's likely public employees nationwide would earn freedom from being forced to support...

    As he raced across the country before the election, President Obama warned supporters about the stakes. “All the progress we’ve made over these last eight years,” he said, “goes out the window if we don’t win this election.” Hillary Clinton, his anointed successor, did not win, and so now Mr. Obama will find out whether his prediction was just campaign hyperbole or if his legacy really has just gone out the window. Not only are specific initiatives like his health care and climate change programs at risk, but so, too, is the broader vision Mr. Obama articulated for America. Suddenly,...

    New Word: “Trumpenstroke“. – The act of eliminating dictatorial fiat with the counter stroke of a President Trump pen. It is actually easier to write about the simplicity of eliminating almost all of President Obama’s accomplishments specifically because of the way Team Obama went about constructing them, dictatorial fiat.

    When the afternoon of January 20, 2017 arrives, the republican party will have: 1) The Presidency. 2) A majority of the House of Representatives. 3) A majority of the Senate. 4) Almost two-thirds of all the governships. 5) Total control of the statehouses in almost two-thirds of all the states. And it is highly likely that within the near future, we will be able to add: 6) The Supreme Court. The above has never happened before in American history. Really think about that and let it sink in a while. And it's pretty much all because of one reason: Barack...

    It was disappointing, but not surprising, to learn from the Indianapolis Business Journal (Oct. 10-16) that both John Gregg and Eric Holcomb endorse public-private partnerships (P3s). These candidates for governor are experienced in the ways of our Indiana government. Mr. Gregg has served at the highest level of the legislature while Mr. Holcomb is our Lt. Governor. P3s are agreements between governments (national, state, or local) with private companies to assume control, but not ownership, of public assets. Hoosiers know them in the form of the new bridge over the Ohio River, connecting the east end of Louisville with Clark...

    Like a warped Islamic version of Santa Claus, Obama had a secret Muslim list. And his people checked it at least twice. The list was of Muslims who were prospects for important jobs and appointments. It included a Muslim who had described Israel as an “Apartheid State,” Iran’s “go-to guy in New York financial circles” and a number of figures linked to the Muslim Brotherhood. It was the ultimate religious test from an administration that had vocally rejected them. Obama had claimed that having religious tests for migration was “shameful” and “not American.” "We don’t have religious tests,” he insisted....
