    Trump should either: 1) Pull a Pelosi and say "Try Again" by flat out vetoing current $2,100,000,000,000 pork filled bill. .. . or . . 2) use Line item veto of the $1,000,000,000,000 in pork. The way I see it 7 new Judges on SCOTUS might see it different than this decision 22 years ago. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Clinton_v._City_of_New_York

    American Thinker ^ | 03/21/2020 | By Eric Georgatos
    Our concern about Donald Trump in the campaign of 2016 was not about his personal morals. The ultimate choice to vote for him was made easier by the manifest political criminality of Hillary Clinton. And his emergence as an America First, America-loving president was a welcome relief after the apology tour presidency of Barack Obama. The concern about Donald Trump was that he had no ideological core. His public political persona was that of a fairly standard liberal Democrat from New York, but one smart enough over his career to shift around and play both sides of the political aisle...

  • Attorney General Bill Barr rebukes Trump’s tweets about Roger Stone; Trump responds by saying he has the same right as any other citizen to comment

    It’s hard to tell whether the apparent tension between President Trump and Attorney General Bill Barr is real or is a way to create the appearance of some separation between Barr and Trump on the subject of Roger Stone. The facts are straightforward, but still open to interpretation. Bob Mueller and his bad boys went after Roger Stone with a level of ferocity far in excess of any wrongdoing Stone had allegedly committed. Although Stone is a non-violent, first-time offender who allegedly committed a crime that is the norm in Washington D.C. (lying to Congress, something that James Clapper, for...

    AIN ASSAD AIR BASE, Iraq — Iran struck back Tuesday for the killing of a top Iranian general last week, firing a series of ballistic missiles at two Iraqi bases housing U.S. troops in a major escalation. Iranian state TV reported the strikes were in retaliation for the killing of Revolutionary Guard Gen. Qassem Soleimani, whose death Friday prompted angry calls to avenge his slaying. A U.S. official said there were no immediate reports of American casualties.

    What is Trump’s end game in the China trade stand-off? I admit China has been ripping off US intellectual property for years and has been gaming the free enterprise system by exporting products manufactured with cheap, coerced labor and apparently have prevented US exports from competing fairly with their own domestically produced goods. The results have been loss of manufacturing and other blue collar work to outsourced labor in foreign markets. The Chinese have also been able to reverse engineer/steal/purchase technology that has a direct impact on US national security. This has to stop. However, so many inefficiencies have been...
  • Dow plunges 875 points after China devalues its currency

    CNN Business ^ | Aug. 5, 2019 | Anneken Tappe
    The Dow tumbled 875 points and global stocks were in disarray on Monday after China escalated the trade war with the United States. The Chinese government devalued the yuan to fall below its 7-to-1 ratio with the US dollar for the first time in a decade Monday. A weaker currency could soften the blow the United States has dealt China with its tariffs. The weak yuan ignited fear on Wall Street that a currency war has begun or that the United States would respond with even higher tariffs, prolonging the standoff with China and potentially weakening the global economy. Investors...

    President Trump said Monday on Twitter that Immigration and Customs Enforcement will begin deporting “millions” of illegal migrants next week. “Next week ICE will begin the process of removing the millions of illegal aliens who have illicitly found their way into the United States. They will be removed as fast as they come in. Mexico, using their strong immigration laws, is doing a very good job of stopping people…" the president tweeted. The president did not offer specifics on what his claim entails. The news comes the same day as the State Department announced it would be cutting foreign aid...

    The Mexican foreign minister says no secret immigration deal exists between Mexico and the US, just hours after President Donald Trump tweeted that a “fully signed and documented” agreement would be “be revealed in the not too distant future.” Marcelo Ebrard, Mexico’s top diplomat, said in a news conference in Mexico City on Monday that there was an understanding that both countries would evaluate the number of migrants crossing the border of Mexico and the United States in the coming months, according to the New York Times. If the number is no significantly reduced, Mr Ebrard says, both nations will...

    Vice President Mike Pence and other top administration officials will meet Wednesday with Mexico’s top diplomat as both sides try to avert the potentially crippling economic consequences of President Trump’s threat to impose tariffs on all Mexican imports. Mr. Trump has vowed to impose a 5 percent tariff on all goods from Mexico beginning Monday and to increase the tax to 25 percent by October if Mexico does not prevent migrants from illegally entering the United States. On Tuesday, Mr. Trump said that it was “more likely that the tariffs” would be imposed. But on Wednesday, the president said he...

    RUSH: It’s amazing. The Drive-By Media now understands the concept of tax cuts and tax increases, but it took tariffs and a tariff war with the ChiComs for the Drive-Bys to understand it. I’m being ironic and a little sarcastic. They know it and understand it. It’s just that since the Republicans own mantra of tax cuts, since that is a Republican owned belief… Democrats don’t believe in cutting taxes; Republicans do, and the Democrats know it. So whenever the concept of tax cuts comes up, the Democrats and the media have to destroy it, as they did the latest...
