    Democrat New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy was confronted by several angry people as he ate outside a restaurant with his family, a video posted Sunday shows. ... The video showed Murphy taking a bite of food as a woman said, “Oh my God, it is,” apparently discovering that the person sitting at the table was indeed the governor of New Jersey. “Oh my God, Murphy, you are such a dick,” the woman said, as another woman can be heard saying repeatedly, “How you doing? How you doing? You having fun with your family in the meantime? You’re having all kind...

    The order prohibits such investments beginning on Jan. 11 President Trump on Thursday signed an executive order to block investment in Chinese businesses that the administration says benefit China's military. The order prohibits such investments beginning Jan. 11, 2021, but allows divestment from investments that include the Chinese securities through Nov. 11, 2021. "Today, President Donald J. Trump signed an Executive Order to protect American investors from funding Communist Chinese military companies, including those designated by the Department of Defense in June and August of 2020," National Security Advisor Robert O'Brien said in a statement.

    President Trump on Wednesday signed an executive order creating a new classification of “policy-making” federal employees that could strip swaths of the federal workforce of civil service protections just before the next president is sworn into office. The order would create a new Schedule F within the excepted service of the federal government, to be composed of “employees in confidential, policy-determining, policy-making, or policy-advocating positions,” and instructs agency heads to determine which current employees fit this definition and move them—whether they are members of the competitive service or other schedules within the excepted service—into this new classification.

    Michigan's Supreme Court on Friday struck down Gov. Gretchen Whitmer's orders to extend a coronavirus-related state of emergency past April 30 without legislative approval. The court ruled 4-3 that Whitmer's decision to declare a state of emergency without approval from state legislators was unconstitutional, citing the 1976 Emergency Management Act, which states that "after 28 days, the governor shall issue an executive order... declaring the state of disaster terminated" or request an extension.....

    President Trump, speaking during the annual National Catholic Prayer Breakfast, vowed to sign an executive order requiring health care be administered to babies born alive. The President said his executive order would “ensure that all precious babies born alive, no matter their circumstances, receive the medical care that they deserve.” “We believe in the joy of family, the blessing of freedom, the dignity of work and the eternal truth that every child born and unborn is made in the holy image of God,” he said. Trump further stressed the importance of a child’s right to life, calling it a “sacrosanct...

    On Wednesday, President Donald Trump announced he would sign an executive order to protect the lives of babies born alive in a botched abortion. A similar bill failed in the Senate last year, but Democrats have argued that the legislation is “redundant.” If so, they should have no complaints when the president issues his order, right? “I will always defend the sacred right to life,” Trump announced at the 16th annual National Catholic Prayer Breakfast. “Today I am announcing that I will be signing the ‘born alive’ executive order to ensure that all precious babies born alive—no matter their circumstances—receive...

    President Trump has pulled the trigger on actually lowering prescription drug prices. By ending arbitrary trade barriers he could save Americans over $50 Billion a year. Even staunch believers in free-market capitalism recognize that there are areas where the government is required to put on a striped shirt and play the referee. Republicans going back to Teddy Roosevelt have understood that. Especially when companies have acquired monopoly powers. President Roosevelt ruffled feathers among Wall Street tycoons when he launched his effort to break up the trusts. Trusts that were abusing their market power, creating monopolies. American consumers were being harmed...
  • President Donald Trump Expands Executive Order Defunding International Planned Parenthood

    President Donald Trump took another step to defund the abortion industry Monday through a new proposed rule to expand the Mexico City Policy. The pro-life policy has been in place during Republican presidential administrations since Ronald Reagan, defunding the International Planned Parenthood Federation and other abortion groups of hundreds of millions of tax dollars. But Trump has done more to protect life than other Republican presidents. In 2017, he expanded the policy to cut off more streams of revenue to international non-governmental agencies (NGOs) that promote and/or provide abortions. The rule defunded Planned Parenthood’s international arm of about $100 million...

    President Trump has again proven that he is a man of action. He says what he means and means what he says. He is all about results.  For over a generation, Americans have been held hostage by the drug companies. We are the largest market, yet we have been forced to pay the highest prices in the industrialized world. Not just a little more. A lot more. Elites in Washington with gold-plated insurance don’t see this. Millions of average American families do. Look at insulin for example. Recently, a vile of insulin carried a retail price of $300 here in the...

    The annual conference is hosted by Great Wall Club (GWC), a group comprised of executives from Chinese companies such as Tencent and their Silicon Valley counterparts. This collaboration, however, poses a national security threat and runs the risk of intellectual property theft and espionage per the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI). Tencent, for example, has been characterized by the U.S. State Department as a “tool of the Chinese government” with “no meaningful ability to tell the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) ‘no’ if officials decide to ask for their assistance,”and is among the bevy of Chinese companies banned or on track...
