Dismantling the Scaffolding of
the Administrative State

American Greatness, by Ashley Hamilton

Original Article

Posted By:earlybird, 12/15/2017 8:44:49 AM

The poetry of politics is the most visible and entertaining part of the American presidency. (Snip)As exciting as the poetry can be, we must never forget the influence of the prose: the less visible—but no less important—job of governance. For the White House must try to liberate the people from the permanent and unelected government that rules by fiat, makes policies by audit, and has no respect for the Constitution. President Trump has a chance to fulfill some of the central promises of his speeches by changing who runs the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB). That chance starts by having Congressman

Comments:
Hamilton makes some good points. And manages to take a swipe at the “self-identifying Native American” and the tribal nation at Harvard Law.

For American Thinker, this article wasn´t up to standard; it omitted examples of what the CFPB does and the abuses of same. It just said, in essence, "it´s bad. Get rid of it." While I completely agree it should be gotten rid of if for no other reason than that a far leftist liar created it, I´d like to have known what the difference to the American culture and wallet its disappearance would make.

American Greatness doesn’t need to “up its game”. One essay does not a website make.

And yes, this Ashley Hamilton is apparently George Hamilton’s son. Quite a turnaround for someone whose life was not always very well done.

(cont’d)

The essays at American Greatness are op-ed pieces, not news articles. The writers assume that readers already know the backstories, like what the CFPB does, abuses of same.

Report: VP Pence Invites Sen. Flake
To Lobby Trump For Amnesty
Breitbart Big Government, by Neil Munro    Original Article
Posted By: earlybird- 1/5/2018 5:59:04     Post Reply
Vice President Mike Pence has invited Sen. Jeff Flake and other pro-amnesty Senators to meet with President Donald Trump next week as business-first advocates scramble to shift the president’s pro-American immigration priorities.(Snip) The Thursday afternoon exit of Tillis and Lankford cripples the establishment group, which also includes GOP Sens. Lindsey Graham and Cory Gardner, and Democratic Sens. Richard Durbin and Michael Bennett. The group split after Trump used a White House meeting on Thursday morning to show that he would not be pushed away from his election-winning immigration agenda, despite pleading by Graham, Tillis, and Lankford.

Ah, another remarkable and far more important bit of news that the Establishment Media is ignoring in favor of 24/7 anti-Trump bashing. Christopher Steele, the primary author of the infamous “Trump Dossier” which was used as justification by the Obama White House to initiate illegal surveillance on the Trump campaign and which has direct ties to high-ranking officials from both political parties (including, but not limited to, the Obama White House) and the Deep State, has just been referred to the Department of Justice for a potential criminal violation: (Screen shot cover letter Grassley-Graham letter to Rosenstein)

Yup, the walls are closing in. In a brilliant move of strategery, Senate Judiciary Chairman, Chuck Grassley, and Senate Judiciary member, Lindsey Graham, send a criminal referral of Christopher Steele to the DOJ for investigation. But things are not what they seem… Today Senators Grassley and Graham sent a letter of criminal referral to the Department of Justice, based on information -provided by the FBI- their investigation has uncovered. However, the actual motive for the criminal referral is not exactly what it appears.Highlighting two pertinent passages (emphasis mine) from the New York Times article will explain what’s really going on: […]

Fabulist Michael Wolff´s book on President Trump is a bunch of baloney. The press knows this, just as a year ago they knew the Russian dossier was baloney. Urinating hookers? Come on. But Jack Shafer of Politico blamed the victim -- President Trump -- for Wolff´s book of lies. From Shafer: President Donald Trump could have saved himself a lot of grief if he — or one of his people — had read Michael Wolff’s 2008 book, The Man Who Owns the News: Inside the Secret World of Rupert Murdoch, before permitting the writer seemingly unfettered access to the White House and

Included in the report from Catherine Herridge there is some really good news: According to the letter, committee investigators also will get access to eight key witnesses this month including FBI agent Peter Strzok and FBI lawyer Lisa Page, who exchanged anti-Trump text messages during an affair and previously worked on the special counsel’s Russia probe; FBI general counsel James Baker, who was reassigned; FBI head of counterintelligence Bill Priestap, whom ex-FBI boss James Comey testified made the decision not to brief Congress about the Russia case during

Led by the Mercers, Bannon’s
Allies Abandon Him

WASHINGTON — Enthusiasm for Stephen K. Bannon’s plans for a fiery Republican revolution had already been fading among some of the donors and candidates he was relying on to upend the party’s establishment. But Mr. Bannon’s provocative remarks about President Trump and his family, reported in a new book now scheduled to be released this week, and Mr. Trump’s angry response, further alienated some of Mr. Bannon’s most important backers — including the family of the hedge fund magnate Robert Mercer — leaving Mr. Bannon confronting the possibility of a dire fate for a publicity-hungry provocateur: political irrelevance.

Mike Allen writes at Axios that Michael Wolff, author of Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House, has “dozens of hours” of recordings to corroborate the controversial quotes attributed to senior White House personnel in the new book — including former White House Chief Strategist and Breitbart executive chairman Stephen K. Bannon. “Michael Wolff has tapes to back up quotes in his incendiary book — dozens of hours of them,” Allen reports. “Among the sources he taped, I’m told, are Steve Bannon and former White House deputy chief of staff Katie Walsh.” Soon after the Axios report dropped Thursday morning, White

Cory Gardner Threatens Jeff Sessions

Sen. Cory Gardner (R-CO) is threatening to block future nominees for Department of Justice positions in response to Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ planned announcement Thursday of a new, potentially tougher tougher policy on marijuana. Sessions plans to rescind a 2013 memo, issued under the Obama administration, that indicated that the Justice Department would refrain from enforcing federal drug laws in states that had legalized marijuana. Instead, the department will now leave enforcement and prosecution decisions up to individual U.S. Attorneys in each state. The effect of the new approach could be to increase the uncertainty surrounding marijuana cultivation and sales, which have

The North-Eastern U.S. is experiencing record-breaking cold. Even the very sharks are dying as they swim. Happily the New York Times is here to put it all in context. It’s all further evidence of global warming, of course! All is ‘explained’ in a story headed “Why so cold? Climate Change May Be Part of the Answer” As bitter cold continues to grip much of North America and helps spawn the fierce storm along the East Coast, the question arises: What’s the influence of climate change? Some scientists studying the connection between climate change and cold spells, which occur when cold Arctic air dips south,

U.S. District Judge Richard J Leon ruled today that Fusion-GPS must turn over their banking records as required under the existing congressional subpoena. Fusion GPS had sought an injunction from the federal court blocking the U.S. House Intelligence Committee from forcing them to provide banking records related to their 2016 opposition research work on Russia related matters. In a 26-page-ruling (full pdf below) Judge Leon rebuked each of the Fusion GPS reasons for the injunction and ruled the subpoena from the congressional committee was appropriate, proper and lawful. This is critical and presents a joint approach toward the entire scheme.

GOP Senators Asking for Amnesty
Concessions from Trump
Breitbart Economics, by Neil Munro    Original Article
Posted By: earlybird- 1/4/2018 5:57:25     Post Reply
GOP politicians are needling, pressuring and cajoling President Donald Trump to drop some of his popular, pro-American immigration priorities. Trump is meeting today with a group of pro-amnesty Republican Senators in the White House, including Sen. Lindsey Graham, the GOP Senator who put together the “Gang of Eight” amnesty in 2013 which split the GOP. Throughout the 2016 campaign, Graham slammed Trump while boosting Jeb Bush. The face-to-face meeting gives Graham and other pro-amnesty Senators another opportunity to salami-slice Trump’s list of priorities, even before the GOP Senators offer further concessions to Democratic Senators. Normally, this form of direct lobbying of the

MSNBC’s Morning Joe co-host Joe Scarborough said President Donald Trump was momentarily speechless after he once asked him, “Can you read?” There was “awkward silence,” Scarborough wrote in an op-ed published Thursday in The Washington Post. Scarborough said the exchange occurred in a “tense meeting” he and his co-host Mika Brzezinski had with Trump after a debate in September 2015. “’I’m serious, Donald. Do you read?’ I continued. ‘If someone wrote you a one-page paper on a policy, could you read it?’” Scarborough recounted of his follow-up. Trump was “taken aback” and quietly replied that “he could while holding up

Donald Trump never intended to win the election and was left ´horrified´ after his shock victory, a sensational new book has claimed. On the morning of their historic win, everyone on Team Trump was busily lining up opportunities for themselves after what they believed would be an inevitable loss. Kellyanne Conway would be a cable news star, Steve Bannon would become leader of the Tea Party movement, while Ivanka and Jared Kushner would be celebrities. Melania, who had been assured she would not become First Lady, would get to go back to lunching while Trump had started floating the idea of his own

Democrats have been quoting from the infamous anti-Trump “Steele dossier” as if it were gospel, but now that Hillary Clinton has been revealed as its paymaster and a Hillary-friendly FBI is under investigation for possibly launching the Trump-Russia “collusion” probe under its false pretenses, they are suddenly in full retreat from it. Their credibility is in tatters along with the discredited document. Rep. Adam Schiff, who’s led the Democrats’ “collusion” inquisition as vice chair of the House Intelligence Committee, fully embraced the dossier from the moment the panel kicked off a public hearing in March with then-FBI Director James Comey.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions will roll back an Obama-era policy that gave states leeway to allow marijuana for recreational purposes. Two sources with knowledge of the decision confirmed to The Hill that Sessions will rescind the so-called Cole Memo, which ordered U.S. attorneys in states where marijuana has been legalized to deprioritize prosecution of marijuana-related cases. (Snip) Sessions, a vocal critic of marijuana legalization, has hinted for months that he would move to crack down on the growing cannabis market. Opponents of legal marijuana celebrated the long-awaited action.

A recent study of adolescents in the state of California by researchers at UCLA found that an eyebrow-raising percentage now identify as "nongender conforming." "We found that 27 percent of youths age 12 to 17 in California, or about 796,000, are GNC," the study stated. The study grouped the kids into three definitions: "gender conforming," "androgynous," or "highly nongender conforming." They found that 20.8 percent were categorized as "androgynous," and an additional 6.2 percent as "highly nongender conforming." This is a huge number that does not align with any prior studies, such as the 4.1 percent of the population of the country that

Jones, a Democrat, took the oath of office on Wednesday after his surprise victory over Republican Roy Moore in last month’s special elections for the Alabama Senate seat vacated by Attorney General Jeff Sessions. American political tradition holds that the vice president, whose constitutional powers make him the president of the Senate, conducts the swearing-in ceremony for each new senator elected to the chamber.

Steve Bannon´s future as executive chairman of the far-right website Breitbart has been thrown into question after excerpts published from a forthcoming book quoted Bannon making a number of incendiary comments about President Trump and his administration. A person familiar with the matter told CNN that there has been a "hard push" to convince Breitbart CEO Larry Solov and Susie Breitbart, the widow of website founder Andrew Breitbart, to fire Bannon. Indeed, The Wall Street Journal reported on Thursday that Breitbart´s board members were debating whether or not to oust Bannon, and on Thursday afternoon Rebekah Mercer, the conservative mega-donor
