Yes, We Can Have The 20 Percent Corporate Tax Rate — Next Month!

in Economics/Politics by

Former Lieutenant Governor Betsy McCaughey (R – New York) has discovered the formula for delivering a 20 percent corporate-tax rate in 2018 — as the U.S. House wishes — not 2019, as the Senate voted, thus flirting with GOP political suicide. McCaughey, a senior fellow with the London Center for Policy Research (as am I), offered a delightfully simple plan in Wednesday’s New York Post: “This beautiful committee,” as President Trump dubbed the House-Senate conference, should accept the House’s January 1, 2018 date for the corporate tax to plunge from today’s 35 percent rate to a new, paradigm-shifting 20 percent. And how would conferees “pay for” such history-making tax relief for American…

NRA-Republican Backed Bill Makes It Easier For Feds To Disarm Citizens

in Politics by

On Wednesday, the Republican controlled house voted to further federalize gun laws in this country. While Ryan McMaken has noted the danger in further centralizing gun legislation, there is another deeply troubling aspect to this bill: it expands the ability of the Federal government to restrict Americans’ right to bear arms. During the legislative process, the NRA supported merging the bill aimed at nationalizing concealed carry permits with another piece of legislation aimed at “fixing” the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS.) Obviously this legislation was inspired by the failure of the US Air Force to report the criminal record of Devin…

Flynn’s Sin Was Lying To Liars, Not Colluding With Russians

in Politics by

Retired US Army Lieutenant General Michael Flynn’s sin was lying to liars, not colluding with Russians. When he spoke to Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak, following Donald Trump’s 2016 election, former National Security Advisor Flynn was discharging a perfectly legal and patriotic duty to the electorate. In a fit of pique, then-President Barack Obama had expelled Russian diplomats from the United States. K. T. McFarland, Flynn’s deputy in the Trump transition team, worried that Obama’s expulsion of the diplomats was aimed at “boxing Trump in diplomatically,” making it impossible for the president to “improve relations with Russia,” a promise he ran…

Rep. Justin Amash Slams The Paul Ryan Congress As “Really Broken”

in News/Politics by

When Republicans won last year, it came as a shock to Democrats and casual political observers. For Republicans, it signaled that their shift in leadership had worked. Whereas years past saw moderate nominees such as Senator John McCain and former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney, this year saw businessman Donald Trump take the mantle as GOP standard bearer. Former House Speaker John Boehner long held control for Republicans in the House of Representatives, but stood down after mounting pressure and handed over control to Romney’s former running mate, Paul Ryan. Republicans won because they were supposed to change things. Paul Ryan’s…

Former Sheriff Joe Arpaio Considering A Run For Jeff Flake’s Senate Seat

in News/Politics by

Senator Jeff Flake has drawn the ire of conservatives for some time now. His dogged ‘Never Trump’ positions have become tired for allies of the Trump Administration’s agenda and he’s been personally called out numerous times by Pthe resident himself. To their luck, he will be retiring from the United States Senate. When Senator Flake is gone, allies of the President will be looking to not only keep a Democrat from winning, but ensure a Republican wins who is an ally of the Trump agenda. The White House is known to be actively assessing the situation in the Senate. The…

Congressman John Lewis Refuses To Honor Civil Rights Movement Because Of Partisanship

in News/Politics by

Congressman John Lewis has widely been celebrated for his role in the civil rights movement. While the push for equality and civil rights is an honorable cause, he has allowed partisan politics to taint his legacy. Time and time again, he’s allowed his position as a Congressman and enrollment in a political party take precedence over what’s important. Now he’s refusing to attend the opening of the Mississippi Civil Rights Museum because the President of the United States is attending. In his reasoning for skipping this important dedication to American history, he cites various comments Trump has made and other…

Trump Reportedly Urging Paul LePage To Run For US Senate, Offers Endorsement

in News/Politics by

The Republican Party swept the 2016 races and is now gearing up to fortify their majorities. A number of targets in both chambers have been identified. One is Independent Senator Angus King, who caucuses with Democrats. He is up for reelection in Maine, but has no credible challenger to this point. What about outgoing Governor Paul LePage? He will be termed out of office and has yet to announce political plans for the future. Although he was long speculated to be preparing for a run, he ultimately decided against it. This hasn’t stopped political allies and fans from urging him…

How Impeachment Will Backfire On Democrats

in Politics by

Most Democrats describe President Donald Trump with a great deal of hyperbole. We’ve apparently never seen a President like this before, and his unstable behavior is cause for panic. Many want to deal with him by removal, and there is a growing number of lawmakers embracing his impeachment. But even with this plan ongoing, Democratic leaders oppose impeaching the President and believe all ongoing investigations should conclude. With all of this said, there still are some Democratic lawmakers who have gone rogue and will continue to do so because their hatred of Trump. Congressman Al Green (D-TX) moved to force…

Venezuelan Collapse Is Golden Opportunity To Showcase American Superiority

in Politics/World by

Venezuela is not a country with a government, it is a hostage situation. The Maduro regime in Caracas has declared its ransom demands. They are actively robbing their captives, and make no mistake, they are executing many of those captives on a daily basis. Among its top ransom demands, the government in Caracas wants to restructure its enormous and dynamic debt burden. Their state-owned oil apparatus, PDVSA, was once a lucrative slush-fund/money-laundering operation for Maduro and the Cuban proxies in the upper echelons of power in Venezuelan politics. Now, PDVSA is financially underwater and struggling to make good on its…

Meet The Uber-Rich Progressive Behind The Impeachment Commercials

in Politics by

The citizens of this country have been inundated by commercials speaking of reasons for the impeachment of President Donald Trump. It appears that the socialists will stop at nothing to throw the duly elected President to the side in order to further their illicit agenda. The corruption and unconstitutional maneuvers of the Obama administration are slowly being pushed back to the benefit of the American people. One of the largest promoters of this attempt to impeach our President is Tom Steyer, a billionaire environmentalist whose own political ambitions include a possible run for the U.S. Senate in California. Speaking to…

Before Her Husband Resigned, Monica Conyers Suggested His Critics Were Racist

in News/Politics by

The ongoing saga surrounding sexual misconduct in Washington D.C. has put the entire city in a difficult position. While Republicans have previously had candidates and politicians face allegations, the floodgates are opening up on Democrats. One of the most prominent examples is Congressman John Conyers, a prominent career politician who was considered a major leader in the Democratic Party. Allegations dropped suggesting that Conyers inappropriately touched female staffers repeatedly and made offensive comments to them in an attempt to make sexual advances. It’s disturbing that this would happen, period. He had to resign over the comments earlier today, and that…

Why Tax Breaks Won’t Stop High-Tech, H-1B Human Trafficking

in Politics by

The question “If the tax reform bill goes through, do you plan to increase your company’s capital investment?” was posed to a sizable group of corporate chieftains at The Wall Street Journal’s CEO Council, in the presence of White House economic adviser Gary Cohn. A pitiful show of hands failed to wipe the smirk off Mr. Cohn’s face. But at least the knaves were candid. Tax cuts for American big businesses are unlikely to move corporations to deploy that capital to raise the wages of the little guy, the worker. The repatriation deal planned for fat-cat multinationals is particularly sweet. But…

Instead Of Repealing Obamacare, Republicans Will Now Fund It

in Politics by

It’s been a difficult year for Republicans. After last year’s stunning upset, the Grand Old Party had secured both chambers of Congress and the White House. Democrats reacted angrily out of fear that all of their major legislative trends would be undone. First and foremost, the target was going to be the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, otherwise known as Obamacare. Enter 2017, Republicans struggled with the one legislative goal they all agreed on. Politics met reality and suddenly everyone was shocked with the reality. Many did not want to actually repeal the law as they pledged, because it…

FCC Chairman Ajit Pai Slams Hollywood Celebrities, Twitter Hypocrisy

As the Net Neutrality battle heats up, rhetoric and hyperbole is escalating primarily because of supporters’ apocalyptic visions of repeal. Given the end of the internet is apparently upon our doorstep, Federal Communications Commission chairman Ajit Pai has found himself front and center. His plan to take down the Obama-era reform has met intense resistance from tech companies, liberal activists, and the Democratic Party. At an event at the R Street Institute in Washington D.C., Pai took aim at his critics. First among his targets was Hollywood celebrities, who often lean to the left.

Mick Mulvaney Admits He Holds Frightening Level Of Power As Head Of Consumer Bureau

in News/Politics by

White House Budget Director Mick Mulvaney has risen from the ranks of the House Freedom Caucus to become one of the most powerful Trump administration officials in the country, as he becomes the head of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB). He says his level of power should “frighten” the masses, because the amount of centralized power that has amassed in Washington D.C. “The structure of the CFPB is just fundamentally flawed. Authority that I have now as the acting director really should frighten people,” Mulvaney said on an episode of “Lou Dobbs Tonight” on Fox Business. “You can sit…

Yankees President Randy Levine Slams Trump’s Tax Plan As Swamp Deal

in Politics by

Randy Levine is a businessman and prominent supporter of President Donald Trump. He also has a large podium, being the President of the New York Yankees. In a recent Newsmax op/ed, he openly called on the President to reconsider his support for the proposed Republican tax plan. The tax plan itself has been sitting on thin ice. Republicans time and time again have struggled to advance legislation, despite having majorities in both chambers and Trump in the White House. Supporters of the President blame the Republicans in Congress for failing his agenda. Count Randy Levine as one of them. In…

Why The Net Neutrality Alarmists Are Wrong

in Politics/Tech by

The Net Neutrality debate has played out like many other instances involving government intervention. The free market is full of dark and evil people who live to prey on the souls of regular people, the big government supporters say. Business people live to exploit the wallets of individuals and swindle the poor in their creative minds. Their entire goal is not to live successfully and build a strong business operation that employs many people, but rather oppress all the helpless people of the world. Then enters valiant government, our mighty knight in shining armor. Our benevolent masters have come to…

Is Cellphone Location Data Protected By The Fourth Amendment?

in Law/Politics by

When the Bill of Rights was drafted and ratified, the United States of America was a different time. It was undoubtedly a simpler time. When privacy protections were passed, it was very clear at the time. The government would need a warrant to enter your personal property or search you personally. Any search could not occur without authorization from a judge. Technology poses a new challenge for the courts. Given how close the world has become due to it, security has new concerns. But do these security concerns trump the Fourth Amendment? The Supreme Court is now considering a case…

Governor Paul LePage Needs To Reconsider Running For U.S. Senate

in Politics by

In terms of Maine politics, Angus King is easily one of the most popular elected officials. He has won multiple elections without being enrolled in a political party. Despite being labeled as a liberal aligned with the Democratic Party, the Democratic Party has generally not embraced him and at times even openly opposed his candidacies. But despite being hit from both sides, he’s been elected twice as Governor and decades later to United States Senate. While registering as an Independent, he is a left-leaning politician who generally aligns with the liberal cause and caucuses with Democrats. His Independent status adds…

MSNBC’s Kasie Hunt Apologizes For Celebrating Rand Paul’s Assault, But Is It Enough?

in Politics by

Over the last year, the mainstream media has taken the reputation of having a liberal bias and cemented it. While it may have just been a conservative cliché to drop the allegation in the past, the trope has become a painfully obvious reality in the last year. For this reason, CNN was labeled the Clinton News Network by many on the right. MSNBC has always held strong as cable’s premiere liberal network, not even attempting to hide their ridiculous bias. With the likes of Rachel Maddow, the network has been firm in its opposition to the right. But things have…

NSA Surveillance Provision Expiration Is All Theater

in Politics by

Until a few years ago, concerns over government surveillance were generally limited to conspiracy theories, technology organizations, and limited-government libertarians (these groups sometimes overlapping). It wasn’t a major mainstream concern. The revelations by former National Security Agency contractor Edward Snowden changed everything. It wasn’t just the paranoid delusions of conspiracy theorists anymore. It wasn’t just excessive caution by concerned libertarians, and it wasn’t just technology organizations arguing extreme hypotheticals. It was fact. After Snowden’s numerous revelations dropped, there was a widespread push for reform. Some people were shocked by the revelations, others were largely unsurprised. If there is one thing…

Nancy Pelosi Defends John Conyers Amid Sexual Assault Controversy

in News/Politics by

Sexual assault allegations have been rocking American society. From Hollywood to Washington D.C., prominent figures are being outed as sexual abusers and rightfully being called out for their actions. Individuals such as Harvey Weinstein have been ousted from their positions of power and influence for their prior actions. While Hollywood has begun to cleanse itself of the outed abusers, the story is different in Washington D.C. It has become clear that taxpayer money has repeatedly been used to settle sexual assault allegations in the nation’s capital. This is an alarming trend, and the public still understands very little about it.…

Marine Corps Veteran Launches Campaign For Alabama Senate Seat

in News/Politics by

The race for the Alabama Senate seat has been a wild rollercoaster over the last year. In a stunning upset, Roy Moore defeated establishment candidate Luther Strange despite being massively out funded. Since this point, the Republican Party has experienced a love-hate relationship with the former State Supreme Court Chief Justice. No Republican wants a Democrat going to the United States Senate, but many are uneasy about Moore. Colonel Lee Busby, a Marine Corps veteran and former aide to John Kelly, has announced he will be launching a write-in candidacy for the Senate seat. Although a write-in candidacy is generally…

Melania Trump Rips Fake News Vanity Fair Article

in News/Politics by

The mainstream media and the liberal elite have been overcome with an outbreak of Trump Derangement Syndrome over the past year. While the politics of President Donald Trump causes controversy in itself, the last name of Trump should also carry a trigger warning. In addition to attacking the President, his own young son was also attacked by celebrities and other left-wing figures numerous times. His wife, young Barron’s mother, was also subject to attacks. Now the fake news mainstream media strikes again. Vanity Fair recently published an article claiming that Melania did not want the role at all and that…

Embattled Swamp Rat John Conyers Tries To Hang On After Sexual Harassment Claims

in News/Politics by

Congressman John Conyers (D-MI) has become the center of the congressional sexual assault controversy amidst multiple allegations and revelations that he used taxpayer dollars to settle his own cases. Now another former staffer has come forward, this time former deputy chief of staff Deanna Maher. Maher ran Conyers’ Detroit field office from 1997 to 2005. The Detroit News reports that Conyers made three inappropriate advances towards her in that time. One instance occurred in September 1997 during a Congressional Black Caucus event. She didn’t have a room, so he had her put in his hotel suite. At that point, she…

Friendly Fire: Susan Sarandon Unloads On Hillary Clinton, Obama Administration

in News/Politics by

Actress Susan Sarandon is known for her liberal progressive views, which are not out of the norm for Hollywood. Many politically vocal celebrities lean to the left. What separates her from many of the others is her refusal to follow the crowd and play partisan politics. A supporter of Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT), she has taken a stand against Democratic politicians while trying to stop Republicans. It’s a rarity in American politics in general, let alone for a celebrity, to shed partisanship and truly think independent of the entrenched political parties. But that’s just what Sarandon has done and continues…

Disgraced Spook Michael Hayden Only Cares About One Tenth Of The Bill Of Rights

in Politics by

Time and again, President Donald Trump has triggered people across America with his habitual tweeting. Twitter has continued to offer a direct gateway to the thought process of a President, something Americans have never known before. His tweets are not watered down by his staff, they’re directly from him. Where President Trump encounters trouble is when he fires shots against his political enemies. The hyperbole in response is incredible. Critics label his tweeting habits as dangerous to liberty and the free press. Using his own right to free speech to criticize those who criticize him is apparently contrary to the…

How The Russians Won In America

in Politics/World by

Red-baiting is the new fashionable trend in America. Ever since last year, the Russian government has been accused of meddling in United States politics. While investigations continue into the validity of Russian interference in last year’s election, it’s important to explore how it happened and why they got away with it. If there was a significant interference by a foreign government, why did Americans subscribe to the propaganda? It’s easy to call those who believed questionable sources unpatriotic. Of course, this is wrong and immoral, but such is the nature of partisan politics. Instead of accusing fellow Americans of being…

When asked about his view of Jones, Gorka conceded that while he “[loves] conspiracy theories as diverting entertainment,” he believes “professional conspiracy theorists are a menace.” “It’s not an accident that outrageous forgeries and smears such as the Protocols of the Elders of Zion are still printed and widely available in the Middle East,” Gorka continued. “Conspiracy theories are dangerous.

Al Franken, John Conyers & The Sexual Assault Double Standard

The last year has been a turbulent year for the American elite. Everyone from prominent politicians to untouchable media giants have been rocked by allegations of sexual assault from women who now feel empowered to speak up. Outside of the political mainstream, even Hollywood’s big names are being rocked by claims of inappropriate sexual behavior. The careers of Harvey Weinstein and Kevin Spacey, both enormous names in Hollywood, are likely over. Individuals like George H.W.

As a retired military veteran, it has hurt me and countless others to see what this government has done to veterans in the area of healthcare. Those that are disabled and need to go to the VA are brushed off, forced to wait up to six months for care, or totally ignored all together. Under President Trump it has gotten better, but is still not of the class it should be. There are now earning limits on who can use VA, with the limit at around 23,000 dollars, hardly enough to live on in todays world. Those who are not…

Roe V. Wade—Nullification Is The “Rightful Remedy”

in History/Politics by

Being “pro-life” means a person opposes abortion. But while the pro-life movement seeks to change hearts and minds about abortion, the ultimate goal of the movement is to make abortion illegal. Abortion doctors murder babies, and they should be prosecuted for the crime. How can the pro-life movement bring about the legal prohibition of abortion? The most common hope today is that the Supreme Court will overturn Roe v. Wade (1973), which would return the issue of legality to the states. This is certainly something to hope for. However, it has been over 44 years since Roe, and the Court…

Sex Scandals Reveal Complete Lack Of Liberal Credibility

It was refreshing for me to read Matt Lewis’ piece for the Daily Beast, “So, Feminists Are Finally Admitting It: Bill Clinton Was a Cad (or Worse).” It’s a rare moment of introspection on the part of a liberal publication, and it belies a reckoning that the Left has been reticent to acknowledge: They are guilty of every sin they have ascribed to conservatives. A man much wiser than myself once said, “Americans will forgive a liar, we will never forgive a hypocrite.” The Left only now seems to be coming to grips with the significance of such a simple…

Gun Control Wouldn’t Work In America

in Culture/Politics by

Another spat of mass shootings, and the same old arguments for and against gun control have sprung up like clockwork. Since we all know this isn’t really going to affect anything, allow me to give my two cents on this issue: Gun control would never work in America (and I specify strictly WITHIN the United States). Not only will it not happen in the United States, it would NOT fix the violent crime problem were it to be passed. First of all, yes, it is true that some other nations in the similar economic “level” as the USA have strict…

College Leftists Grow So Unhinged That Even Joe Biden Is Crying Foul

But for once this criticism of the protesters who beat up students (along with innocent bystanders) for merely wanting to attend the speeches was not voiced by a conservative.

Conservative Turf War: Chambers Vs. Rand

There’s an old saying that has a kernel of truth to it: “That it takes a maniac to defeat a maniac.” There are exceptions to this rule as in the case of the calm and empirical Joseph Welch destroying the fanatical Joseph McCarthy with one phrase (“Have you no sense of decency?”).  But more often than not, fanatics are outmanned by their counterparts. An example is how then-Congressman Richard Nixon, already malformed with self-pity and paranoia, sensed early and correctly that the New Deal darling, Alger Hiss was a sociopathic liar who against all accumulating and damaging evidence denied his…

Hey GOP Establishment, Want To Cut The Burden Of Government? Cut Spending

Washington, DC is currently in the middle of a the “tax reform” process, which as Jeff Deist, points out, is ” a con, and a shell game.” Tax reform proposals, Deist continues “always evade and obscure the real issue, which is the total cost — financial, compliance, and human — taxes impose on society.” Tax reform is really about which interest groups can modify the current tax code to better suit their own parochial interests. The end result is not a lessened tax burden overall, and thus does nothing to boost real savings, real wealth creation, or real economic growth. It’s just yet another government method of…

How ‘The FREE Act’ Could ‘Freeze’ The Credit Industry

in Politics by

Between May and July, hackers breached the cybersecurity of Equifax, a company that provides consumer credit scores, exposing the personal details of up to 143 million U.S. consumers. This information included names, driver’s license numbers, and Social Security numbers. Democrats immediately jumped at the chance to regulate the credit industry. Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) and Sen. Brian Schatz (D-HI) proposed the Freedom from Equifax Exploitation Act (FREE Act), a panicked, overreaching response to an event that doesn’t define or represent the credit industry. The FREE Act would ultimately enable the excessive and unnecessary regulation of a credit industry that provides…
