    US Incorporated ^ | January 19th, 2021 | Allan Wall
    On June 16, 2015, Donald J. Trump descended the escalator in Trump Tower and announced his campaign for President. That was five and a half years ago, and Trump has dominated the media and political discourse unto this day. You might love Trump, you might hate him, but you can’t ignore him. Now Trump’s term of presidency, beginning in 2017, is at an end, to be replaced by Joseph R. Biden.

    Former Vice President Joe Biden announced Thursday he would bring former National Security Advisor Susan Rice back to the White House to head the Domestic Policy Council. Biden’s decision is puzzling, as Rice’s entire political career was focused on national security.

    How permanent an impact a Joe Biden presidency will have comes down almost entirely to what happens in the state of Georgia on Jan. 5, 2021.There’s no doubt a Joe Biden administration is going to have a massive impact on the United States. How permanent an impact it will have, however, comes down almost entirely to what happens in the state of Georgia on Jan. 5, 2021. Like all modern presidents, President Barack Obama used the power of the executive to his benefit, signing orders that ranged from granting amnesty to illegal immigrants to joining the Paris climate agreement.

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif) tore into Justice Amy Coney Barrett for refusing to answer key political questions during her confirmation hearing. "When Sen. Feinstein (D-Calif) asked her whether she thought Medicare was constitutional she refused to say." Barrett's reply was that "it would be improper for a judge to respond to a hypothetical issue. The role of the courts is to deal with actual cases brought before it. The facts and circumstances of each case are what a court rules on. Without a specific case to adjudicate the courts are not empowered to make pronouncements on the legality of...

    US President Donald Trump’s administration has reportedly approved the sale of advanced F-22 Raptor stealth fighter jets to Israel, Asharq Al-Awsat reported Friday. The Move said to come as part of efforts to maintain Israel’s qualitative military edge in the region after UAE is all set to get F-35’s from the US. According to the report, the announcement was made by US Defense Secretary Mark Esper during his recent visit to Israel. The US government also purportedly gave its nod to the selling of precision-guided munitions to the Israel Defense Forces. On Tuesday, Haaretz reported that Israel sought to procure...
  • "'Stunning’ Executive Order Would Politicize Civil Service" - Define Stunning

    Government Executive Magazine ^ | 10-22-2020 | Erich Wagner
    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.

    Two days after the United States ordered China to close its consulate at Houston within 72 hours, U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo clarified the Trump administration’s foreign policy on China in a major speech on July 23. Because shutting down a country’s diplomatic mission is a very serious and provocative step, many wonder if the Sino-U.S. relationship is in freefall and what that could mean for the rest of the world. So Pompeo’s speech couldn’t have come at a better time.A noteworthy aspect of Pompeo’s speech was its criticism of America’s failed engagement-oriented policy toward Communist China during...

    It has been nearly two years since the killing of Michael Brown Jr. by a police officer in Ferguson, Missouri, touched off outrage and a national movement to save black lives from state violence. Now, just days ahead of the anniversary of Brown’s death, a coalition of organizations that grew from that uprising have launched a policy agenda calling for deep criminal justice and policing reforms. The Movement for Black Lives — under the catch-all banner of the Black Lives Matter movement — has put together what it describes as a “clear vision of the world where black humanity and...

    Refers to an article by Hal Brands, Steven A. Cook, and Kenneth M. Pollack. Trump’s break with decades of U.S. strategy in the Persian Gulf has been conducted in his typically cavalier manner. But it did not come out of nowhere. Americans have been debating their long-standing strategic commitment to the Gulf for several years now. Critics of that commitment have offered multiple arguments for why Washington ought to pull back from the region. Each is founded in realities that should refine U.S. strategy toward the Gulf, but not abandon it, as Trump appears to be doing.

    With all respiratory diseases, the only thing that stops the disease is herd immunity. About 80% of the people need to have had contact with the virus, and the majority of them won’t even have recognized that they were infected, or they had very, very mild symptoms, especially if they are children. So, it’s very important to keep the schools open and kids mingling to spread the virus to get herd immunity as fast as possible, and then the elderly people, who should be separated, and the nursing homes should be closed during that time, can come back and meet...

    Sky-high property taxes are perpetuating an affordability crisis, as Texas Gov. Greg Abbott pointed out. Abbott told the Rotary Club of San Antonio, “One thing that is driving up the cost of housing and the cost of living is skyrocketing property taxes—skyrocketing property taxes that are beginning to force people out of homes they’ve lived in for virtually their entire lives.” And of course, he’s right. Texans everywhere are struggling to hold onto their homes because of soaring tax bills. That’s especially true in places like Travis County, where local officials are hitting homeowners hard. In fiscal year 2015, the...

    On Thursday’s “CNN Tonight,” 2020 presidential candidate Senator Cory Booker (D-NJ) discussed the strike that killed Qassem Soleimani, the leader of Iran’s Quds Force and said that President Trump lacks a broader strategy and he doesn’t “have great confidence” in Trump’s foreign policy. Booker began by cautioning that the story is developing and we still don’t have all the facts. He also noted that Soleimani has killed Americans and destabilized the Middle East.

    WASHINGTON, Nov 4 (Reuters) - Two U.S. career diplomats told the Trump impeachment inquiry that they did not feel supported by the State Department under President Donald Trump and that the department was being used for domestic political purposes, according to transcripts of their testimony released on Monday. The Democratic-led House of Representatives investigation into the Republican president is focused on a phone call in July in which Trump asked Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy to investigate political rival Joe Biden, a former vice president and contender for the Democratic Party nomination to run against him in the November 2020 election......

    Several Democrats running for their party’s nomination in 2020 are backing a policy of easing school discipline, arguing that they want to stop a “school-to-prison pipeline” that hurts minority students. But according to Andrew Pollack (no relation), whose daughter, Meadow, was among the victims in the Parkland school shooting last February, those policies allow potentially dangerous people to keep a clean record, letting them pass firearm background checks.

    This week, The New York Times caved to online bullying and changed a headline for an article covering President Donald Trump's remarks after the horrible shootings in El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio. The original headline, "Trump Urges Unity Vs. Racism," was met with outrage on social media by those on the left. During the day, the hashtag #CancelNYT began trending. The headline was changed to "Assailing Hate but Not Guns." So, if the headline was initially wrong, what did Trump say on Monday in response to the shootings? Trump noted that the El Paso shooter had "posted a...
