  • Trump wants to roll back progress against climate change. He’s going to fail.

    Few of President Barack Obama’s achievements seem more imperiled from President Trump than progress in combating climate change. To avert catastrophic climate change, the broadly accepted goal among climate scientists is to stay below two degrees Celsius (3.6 degrees Fahrenheit) of warming over preindustrial temperatures. By helping negotiate the 2015 climate agreement in Paris and setting up a regulatory framework for fossil fuel emissions domestically, Obama created conditions that are necessary, but insufficient, to get there. The plan was for his successor to go further by increasing the ambition of Obama’s climate rules, cracking down on methane leakage and completing...
  • The Ryancare Route -- Winning by Losing?

    03/28/2017 5:22:27 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 26 replies ^ | March 28, 2017 | Pat Bucanan
    Did the Freedom Caucus just pull the Republican Party back off the ledge, before it jumped to its death? A case can be made for that. Before the American Health Care Act, aka "Ryancare," was pulled off the House floor Friday, it enjoyed the support -- of 17 percent of Americans. Had it passed, it faced an Antietam in the GOP Senate, and probable defeat. Had it survived there, to be signed by President Trump, it would have meant 14 million Americans losing their health insurance in 2018. First among the losers would have been white working-class folks who delivered...

    President Donald Trump will take the most significant step yet in obliterating his predecessor's environmental record Tuesday, instructing federal regulators to rewrite key rules curbing U.S. carbon emissions. The sweeping executive order also seeks to lift a moratorium on federal coal leasing and remove the requirement that federal officials consider the impact of climate change when making decisions.

    Fresh off a defeat on U.S. healthcare legislation, the White House warned rebellious conservative lawmakers that they should get behind President Donald Trump's agenda or he may bypass them on future legislative fights, including tax reform. The threat by White House chief of staff Reince Priebus to build a broad coalition on tax reform that could include moderate Democrats came as the Republican head of the tax-writing committee in the House of Representatives said he hoped to move a tax bill through his panel this spring. House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Kevin Brady said his committee had been working...

Indiana health care consultant Seema Verma, a protégé of Vice President Mike Pence, was approved by a 55-43 vote, largely along party lines. She’ll head the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, a $1 trillion agency that oversees health insurance programs for more than 130 million people, from elderly nursing home residents to newborns.

He spent several days last week in intense discussions with conservative members of both the House and Senate - as well as libertarian Rand Paul, who sometimes pretends to be conservative - trying to reach an agreement that will push a good bill forward to passage.

The spending budget Trump is set to release Thursday will offer the clearest snapshot of his vision for the size and role of government.

What's changed, we wonder? The Bureau of Labor Statistics reported Friday that the economy added 235,000 jobs in February, when economists expected 200,000 new jobs. And that comes after January's 227,000 gain, which also beat economists' forecasts by a substantial margin. That's not all. Other recent indicators have come in better than economists had expected. Orders for capital goods were higher in December than forecast. There were supposed to be...

Secretary of Homeland Security John Kelly himself announced the month-to-month numbers, statistics that CBP usually quietly posts on its website without fanfare. According to CBP data, the 40% drop in illegal Southwest border crossings from January to February is far outside normal seasonal trends. Typically, the January to February change is actually an increase of 10% to 20%. The drop breaks a...

As we close in on two months of the Trump White House, however, another strategy may be emerging: Outlast the media....

    Republican lawmakers said Sunday that they will include President Trump’s explosive claim that the Obama administration engaged in politically driven wiretapping in the congressional probes of Russian campaign meddling. Rep. Devin Nunes, the California Republican who heads the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, said the president’s allegation would be examined as part of the panel’s investigation. “One of the focus points of the House intelligence committee’s investigation is the U.S. government’s response to actions taken by Russian intelligence agents during the presidential campaign,” Mr. Nunes said. “As such, the committee will make inquiries into whether the government was conducting...

    When I woke up Sunday, I thought the morning news shows would all be talking about the unusual, perhaps dangerous, decision of the Obama administration to wiretap the offices of then-presidential candidate Donald Trump. I’ve been watching Chuck Todd’s “Meet the Press” as I write this. There is actually little talk about this unprecedented wire-tapping and even less worry over it. New York Times columnist Thomas Friedman, usually thoughtful, just told Chuck Todd he found it is “shocking” that Trump disclosed the wiretapping claim on Twitter. But Friedman offered no shock that such a wiretap might have taken place! I...

    UNFCCC Executive Secretary Patricia Espinosa has complained in public that Rex Tillerson, President Trump’s Secretary of State, hasn’t responded to her request for a meeting. Oh the horror – UN climate bureaucrats taking a back seat to issues like international terrorism, badly designed job destroying trade agreements, dangerous global flash points, rogue states attempting to arm themselves with nuclear weapons…

  • Trump's Speech Was an A-plus

    I was unable to watch President Trump's speech to Congress in real time but heard it was phenomenal. I watched it the next day, and it was even better than I expected. There was enough meat in the first five minutes to satisfy a hungry audience of Americans and fuel an extensive column, but it just kept getting better. I don't agree that Trump became presidential for the first time that evening as so many opined in chorus, because I think he's been presidential since his inauguration and also because I don't subscribe to the commentariat's superficial concept of...

    The number of Americans filing for unemployment benefits fell to near a 44-year low last week, pointing to further tightening of the labor market even as economic growth appears to have remained moderate in the first quarter.
  • Oopsie! Up to 30 Democrats should resign for meeting with Russian diplomats in 2015

    Oopsie! Up to 30 Democrats should resign for meeting with Russian diplomats in 2015 Posted at 11:34 am on March 2, 2017 by Sam J. You have to laugh at the Democrats and their feigned and calculated outrage over a senator from the Armed Services Committee meeting with the ambassador of Russia; of course that senator is AG Sessions but seriously, this is their big freakout. Forget that Sessions did not meet with the ambassador regarding TrumpÂ’s campaign (that was what he was asked folks), but since he merely MET with him, Democrats want him to resign. Immediately. So does...

    Ben Carson is now officially confirmed as secretary of the Department of Housing and Urban Development, following the Senate vote Thursday morning. The approval locks in one of the few remaining cabinet members left to be approved. The Senate floor voted the day before on the motion to invoke cloture on the nomination of Carson, passing the vote 62-37. The significant majority vote gave Carson a likely green light to be confirmed on Thursday. Despite a controversial start to his nomination, it turned out to be all bark and no bite as his hearing went fairly smooth. The former neurosurgeon...
