Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders held a press conference along with Secretary of State Rex Tillerson on Monday afternoon. Tillerson reiterated the importance of President Trump’s trip throughout Asia and the diplomatic efforts to suppress nuclear proliferation in North Korea.  When discussing the trip’s goals, Tillerson said, “We continue to turn the pressure up on North Korea by getting the countries to join and take actions on their own.” North Korea has been heavily sanctioned for quite some time by United Nations resolutions designed to incentivize the country to stop its nuclear development program among other strategic goals. Today, the Treasury Department slapped… Keep Reading

Mulvaney Testifies That Trump’s Pro-growth Policy Will Help Balance The Budget

Today, the Senate Budget Committee heard testimony on President Trump’s 2018 Budget. Today’s witness was Mick Mulvaney, director of OMB. Each Senator had five minutes to ask questions about the proposed budget. Most Senators chose to make long statements for the cameras. Very few questions asked by either side were made in an attempt to actually understand something that they did not already know. One of the leading issues raised by the minority party was that Trump assumed 2.9% growth each year for the next 10 years. Almost every Democrat Senator mentioned this issue and how irresponsible it is for… Keep Reading

Mulvaney Answers Congress’ Questions About Trump’s 2018 Budget

Former Congressman and House Budget Committee member Mick Mulvaney returns to the House Budget Committee today to testify on the details of Trump’s 2018 Budget. Mulvaney returned as the director of Office of Management and Budget. Before the hearing started, one could see Mulvaney casually talking to various members who he had served with just a few months ago. During the over three-hour hearing, Republican committee members praised the Trump budget for its vision to balance the budget within 10 years. Meanwhile, every Democratic member gave long grandstanding demonizing speeches as to why their pet government project (several of which… Keep Reading

Media Lies, Trump Increases Medicaid Spending

Today, Donald Trump released his 2018 Taxpayer First Budget. Like clockwork, the liberal media immediately proclaimed that Donald Trump broke his campaign promises not to cut Medicaid. One would expect liberal blogs like Mother Jones to deliberately lie about President Trump’s budget. However, even Forbes lied with an article today titled “Trump Budget Cuts Social Security And Medicaid, Breaking Major Promises”. Keep Reading

Trump Doubles Down On Regulatory Reform

On Friday, the media was clamoring about President Trump’s unfair treatment of them. However, this was not the important news story of the day. The important story was Donald Trump’s unprecedented step towards fulfilling his campaign promise of reducing the regulatory burden in this country. Trump Signs Executive Order to Enforce His Regulatory Reform Agenda On January 30, 2017, Trump signed an executive order dealing with regulatory reform. This executive order required federal agencies to eliminate two regulations for every new regulation that is introduced. On February 24, 2017, Trump doubled down with a new executive order that created a… Keep Reading

Democrats Are Winning Even Though Trump’s Appointments Are Being Confirmed

Senate Democrats have shut down the Trump administration. Even though Republicans hold a majority on the Senate floor, Democrats have been able to stop Trump’s political appointments. As President, Trump is entitled to make over 1,200 political appointments that must be approved by the Senate. Thanks to former Senator Harry Reid, it only takes 51 votes to break a filibuster. However, under the Byrd Amendment, after the filibuster is broken, 30 hours must elapse before the final vote can occur. On Monday, February 6, the Senate started the current marathon session. By Saturday, the Senate will have only been able… Keep Reading

Tear Down The UN And Build The Wall

Last Wednesday, it was announced that, by way of executive fiat, the United States would begin scaling back its financial support of the United Nations (UN). It was the same day our new President signed an order which jump-starts the construction of his long promised wall along the US-Mexico border. At face value it would seem these two imperatives bare no similarity except for the expanded exertion of executive hegemony over our national governance. There’s more to this picture than meets the eye. For too long the United States has sacrificed its sovereignty on the altar of globalism, all at… Keep Reading

Chao has previously served as the Secretary of Labor for the administration of George W. Bush and is married to Senator Mitch McConnell (R-KY). A formal announcement of the pick is expected in the afternoon. This is a good pick for several reasons.

Should a Free Person Accept The Election Results

The latest link in a long chain of electoral drama, Hillary Clinton and Donald J. Trump sparred mercilessly in Wednesday’s debate and following press conferences over whether the losing side would “accept the outcome” of the national election. What exactly does that mean? Usually, accepting the outcome of the election means you concede the election graciously when it’s clear that you lost. When moderator Chris Wallace asked Mr. Trump during the final presidential debate of the 2016 election cycle, Trump said he would think about it when the time came. I will venture a likely unpopular view that Trump and… Keep Reading
