8:04 PM 01/03/2018

You wouldn’t know it by listening to congressional Democrats, but the Republican tax reform bill helps the middle-class and blue-collar workers first by directly cutting their taxes. Speaker Paul Ryan reports that, under the bill, a family of four earning the median income of $73,000 will get a tax cut of $2,059 which comes in part by doubling the standard deduction to $24,000 for families and the child tax credit to $2,000.

2:05 PM 01/26/2017

Michael Moore is 62 years old, but he has the mind of an adolescent. He is carrying out a campaign calling for 100 Days of Resistance to Trump. But he is delusional, claiming he and his progressives won the Presidency. What we see is that he wants to lead a revolution for the fun and romanticism of it.

Inauguration: Trump Remembers The Forgotten Man And Woman

4:53 PM 01/23/2017

The central theme of Trump’s Inaugural Address was that he is going to keep his campaign promises and follow through on his rhetoric. “January 20, 2017 will be remembered as the day the people became the rulers of this nation again,” he said. “The forgotten men and women of our country will be forgotten no longer.”

Trump & Carrier: Incentives Are Preferable To A “Mailed Fist”

The Supreme Court Is On The Ballot This Fall

11:04 AM 09/14/2016

The next president is likely to appoint as many as half the members of the United States Supreme Court.  Besides the vacant Scalia seat, Justice Ruth Ginsburg is 83 and in poor health.  Justice Anthony Kennedy is 80.  Justice Stephen Breyer is 78.  That is four out of nine.  Obama’s Elena Kagan and Sonia Sotomayor will still be there to make it six out of nine.
