    Washington (AFP) - Brick by brick, the demolition job has begun: since taking office less than a year ago, Donald Trump has launched an all-out assault on the legacy of Barack Obama. Climate, free trade, health care, immigration, foreign policy -- the 45th US president has set about undoing just about everything done by the 44th. All new presidents, of course, break with their predecessor once in the Oval Office, especially if they come from a rival political party. But what is striking is how systematic the hammer blows to Obama's legacy have been. And rather than throw his weight...

    President Trump says Americans don’t worship government, they should call evil by its name and times are “changing back” to an earlier era when the nation’s founders “invoked our Creator four times in the Declaration of Independence.” His comments came Friday at the Value Voters Summit in Washington, D.C., an annual gathering of the nation’s leading conservative and faith organizations, where he spoke just a year ago as a candidate. He’s the first sitting president to address the group. “We know that it’s the family and the church, not government officials, that know best how to create strong and loving...

    RUSH: Something dramatic, crucial, and extraordinary has just happened, ladies and gentlemen. It just happened mere moments before this program began. The timing certainly not coincidental. It happened at the White House. It involved the president of the United States and a pen. And what happened was a first serious slice taken out of Obamacare. Despite Senator John McCain’s best efforts to thwart President Trump and preserve this boondoggle, the president’s triumphs here at this stage.

    The Second Amendment is worthy of our defense. It is there to defend us. Don't ever lose sight of that Before a people are enslaved, before any nation is taken over, they are first disarmed. That’s just history and common sense. From the inside or out, a nation is always first compromised by the removal of its ability to defend itself. Stalin, Hitler, Mao, et al., they all declawed whatever organism that stood in their way - most especially the people they intended to govern. When Japan was planning to attack our mainland, their Admiral Isoroku Yamamoto purportedly said that...

    There is a move afoot to cast Christopher Columbus as an evil person instead of the person celebrated as the first to traverse the Atlantic Ocean, discovering there were two major continents not previously known to the world as it existed in 1492. In another feel-good moment, some cities are renaming Columbus Day as Indigenous People’s Day. American Indians are desperate for real help, not placating moments. Naomi Schaefer Riley has defined how bad things are for American Indians and how Washington, D.C., bureaucracy is destroying the lives of these Americans in her terrific and terrifying book "The New Trail...

    'Public expenditures on the council and related forums have produced few benefits' President Trump, while still a candidate, promised that he would get a better deal for America. Or, in fact, better deals. Since he’s taken office, he’s talked about cutting funding for the United Nations, renegotiating the NAFTA trade deal. He already pulled the U.S. out of the Paris Climate Accord. All of which have taken extensive discussion and defending. On Friday, he decided to get a better deal for the U.S. with a simple move: he simply canceled an entire federal program begun by President Obama. It was...

    The number of people working for the federal government has declined by 13,000 in 2017, according to data released today by the Bureau of Labor Statistics. At the same time, overall government employment in the United States increased by 7,000 as the number of people working at the state government level and the local government level both increased. Meanwhile, the significant increase in manufacturing jobs that started last December halted in September as the nation lost 1,000 jobs in that sector. {..snip..}

    Nothing is so unsettling to a social order as the presence of a mass of scribes without suitable employment and an acknowledged status…The explosive component in the contemporary scene is not the clamor of the masses but the self-righteous claims of a multitude of graduates from schools and universities. This army of scribes is clamoring for a society in which planning, regulation, and supervision are paramount and the prerogative of the educated. They hanker for the scribe’s golden age, for a return to something like the scribe-dominated societies of ancient Egypt, China, and the Europe of the Middle Ages. There...

    President Donald Trump discusses the short-term (relief) and long-term (recovery) efforts for Puerto Rico. As everyone is aware, even before the storm the island territory was under financial collapse as a result of Democrat mismanagement and generational political agendas’ creating a culture of dependency. Hurricane Maria has exacerbated Puerto Rico’s problems and is showcasing a governmental structure incapable of governing during crisis. The media hypes the suffering, yet omits the Island’s inept systems of governance and the culture of dependency. The only way the U.S. federal government can assist effectively is by taking over almost every aspect of state and...

    President Trump's inaugural committee announced it intends to donate $3 million to several organizations assisting with hurricane relief, following criticism for not donating the outstanding funds sooner. The money will be divided equally between the American Red Cross, the Salvation Army, and Samaritan's Purse, Thomas Barrack Jr., chairman of the private Presidential Inaugural Committee said. The three organizations have been involved with hurricane relief efforts in the Gulf Coast, Florida, and the Caribbean.

    Homeowners in tax-happy blue states could find a bitter pill inside the new Republican tax plan, which would kill their ability to write off the property taxes that can cost even middle class families more than $10,000 per year. The plan rolled out Tuesday would keep in place deductions for mortgage interest and charitable donations. But, in a move to help offset other major cuts in the plan, many other itemized deductions would be scrapped. ... New York Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo slammed the proposal, saying the loss of the deduction could cost New Yorkers more than $17 billion. “It...

    Scalise, the House Majority Whip, returned to Capitol Hill on Thursday for the first time since June, when he took a 9mm bullet to the hip during baseball practice at an Alexandria, Va. baseball field. "I'm back," Scalise tweeted at about 10 a.m. Thursday. House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) reportedly became emotional when he saw his longtime colleague at the Capitol on Thursday. The gunman, James Hodgkinson, wounded five people including Scalise during the June 14 shooting, which occurred as lawmakers practiced for the Congressional Baseball Game a day later.

    The Washington Times ^ | September 13, 2017 | Charles "Skip" Stitt
    The nation’s approach to managing public infrastructure is often inefficient. Best practices, such as life-cycle asset management and preventive maintenance, are rarely a priority. We can, however, unlock billions of dollars of infrastructure funding capacity now trapped in existing assets by improving how we build, operate and finance infrastructure. While experts discuss the size and urgency of our infrastructure needs, the debates focus on how to pay for new infrastructure. The Trump administration has identified public-private partnerships (P3) as a primary strategy. A majority of states and D.C. have statutes allowing P3s. Other countries have also adopted P3s as a...

    We’ll dig through the tax reform details as they become available. However, pragmatic #MAGA Trump supporters would be wise not to get too far out in advance of supporting this GOPe tax reform package yet. The reason for caution is quite simple. Notice the players, the key constructionists. These are the exact same Decepticons who constructed the TPP (Trans Pacific Partnership) trade deal, and who operate in DC on behalf of their multinational corporate sponsors and benefactors. The representatives within this press conference are the EXACT SAME members who constructed TPP and pushed Trade Promotion Authority (TPA) to ensure its...

    President Donald Trump has claimed, almost from the very start of his campaign, that the mainstream media did not cover him fairly and worked to rig the election for Democrat rival Hillary Clinton. We’ve all witnessed how the mainstream media has gone out of its way to make Trump look bad. Even if it meant spreading lies, the media has been intent on destroying Trump. A recent study conducted by Media Research Center proved just how right Trump’s claims are. Below is another list of reporters that attended a dinner with Clinton, via WikiLeaks: ABC – Liz Kreutz AP –...

    GOP Rep. Louie Gohmert on Monday urged Arizona to "recall" Sen. John McCain amid his recent brain cancer diagnosis, while criticizing his Republican colleague for going back on his 2016 campaign vow to repeal ObamaCare. “[McCain] is one of those that said I will repeal—if he had said last year what he was going to do,” he would have lost, Gohmert, R-Texas, said on “Fox & Friends” early Monday. “Nothing inhibits recovery from cancer like stress. I think Arizona could help him, and us. Recall him, let him fight successfully this terrible cancer, and let’s get someone in here who...

    Puerto Rico officials are praising the proactive response by President Donald Trump and the federal government to the catastrophic damage wrought by Hurricane Maria. Trump spoke on Thursday with the governors of Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands. Earlier in the week Trump signed official disaster declarations for the two U.S. territories, according to The Hill.
