Friday, November 17, 2017 -- D.C. Rocked, Raging Bull, Kudos To Grassley

D.C. Rocked
 
Shocking allegations against Senator Al Franken (D-MN) rocked Washington, D.C., yesterday.  Leeann Tweeden, a news anchor for KABC in Los Angeles, came forward with accusations that Sen. Franken sexually assaulted her during a 2006 USO tour.  A second woman, Melanie Morgan,...

A Big Win
 
The House of Representatives today passed the first major tax reform bill since the Reagan era.  The vote was 227-to-205. 
 
No Democrats voted for the bill. Of the 13 Republicans who voted against it, 12 came from three high-tax blue states:  California, New Jersey and New York.  They were opposed to the elimination of the deduction for state income taxes and...

Wednesday, November 15, 2017 -- Priorities, Trump Returns, Impeachment, The Moore Mess

Contrast In Priorities
 
In a previous report discussing the competing congressional tax reform plans, I noted that the failure to repeal Obamacare severely limited the scope of tax reform.  That frustrating reality apparently got to President Trump.  Monday, while still on his Asia tour, he tweeted this:
 
"I am proud of the Rep. House & Senate for working so...

Legal News
 
President Trump won a minor victory yesterday in a surprising venue.  The liberal 9th Circuit Court of Appeals overturned a lower court injunction and allowed the administration to begin enforcement of the president's latest order restricting immigration from six countries that are hotbeds of radical Islamic terrorism: Chad, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Syria and Yemen.

Speaking to reporters on Air Force One this weekend, President Trump slammed former intelligence chiefs John Brennan, James Clapper and James Comey as "political hacks."  The president also called Comey a "liar" and a "leaker."

Friday, November 10, 2017 -- Honoring Our Veterans

Honoring Our Veterans

Saturday is Veterans Day. Communities across the country will honor our military veterans for their service and sacrifice.

The day originally began as Armistice Day to mark the 11 AM ceasefire on November 11, 1918, that ended World War I.  Congress voted to change the name to Veterans Day in 1954 to commemorate the veterans of all our wars.
 
Sadly, we are living in an era of increasing hostility toward...

Thursday, November 9, 2017 -- Dueling Plans, Standing Strong, Left-wing Nonsense

Dueling Tax Plans
 
Senate Republicans met today to hear the outlines of a tax reform plan being drafted by Senator Orrin Hatch (R-UT), chairman of the Senate Finance Committee.  The broad outlines generally mirror the House plan, but there are some significant differences.  For example:

Wednesday, November 8, 2017 -- What Happened, A Warning For 2018

What Happened?
 
No, this isn't a review of Hillary Clinton's new book.  Here's my take on last night's off-year election results.
 
First, I'll dispense with New Jersey.  Democrat Phil Murphy won by 13 points, which surprised no one.  This was never really a competitive race. 
 
Hillary Clinton won New Jersey last year by 13 points.  Moreover, Gov....

Tuesday, November 7, 2017 -- Media Bias, Air Force Dropped The Ball,  Comey Gets Caught

Media Bias
 
If you need an explanation for why there is such division in America, blame the liberal media.  Unfortunately, most Americans aren't listening to Rush Limbaugh or Sean Hannity.  They aren't watching Fox News or reading these daily reports. 
 
As a result, they are getting distorted and biased information that often neglects to report key details...

Don't Let The Left Silence You
 
As you know, Devin Patrick Kelley murdered 26 people and wounded 24 others yesterday during a shooting rampage at the First Baptist Church of Sutherland Springs, Texas. 
 
Press reports indicate that Kelley briefly served in the Air Force, but was court-martialed on two counts of assaulting his wife and child.  He spent a year...
