Ryan Says No Shutdown,
No DACA in Spending Bill

PJ Media, by Rick Moran

Posted By:Pluperfect, 1/14/2018 4:33:04 AM

The stakes have been raised in the negotiations over a spending bill that will keep the government operating after January 19. Speaker Paul Ryan says that the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) legislation will not be on the table in budget talks after Donald Trump refused to accept a deal that would have included it. CNN: We have to keep those separate because that´s just not good government, just lopping all this stuff together," he said. "I think people are attaching them in their minds as far as leverage is concerned, but they won´t be technically attached as far as legislation is

I recently became a crime victim for one of the few times in my life. My car was burgled while I was up in the Bay Area on my weekly sojourn to the Peoples Republic of Berkeley. I say “burgled” rather than “broken into,” because there was no smashed window, or picked lock, nor did I leave the car unlocked. Rather, I was the victim of a clever gang of organized car burglars in the Bay Area who are using sophisticated scanners to copy and boost the key-fob signal for recent model keyless entry and ignition cars.

The last couple months of success for Donald Trump’s administration have the liberals and their Fredocon buddies in a panic. It’s blocking their return to power. General John Kelly came into the White House as Chief of Staff and provided the much needed discipline that helped translate the President’s vision into the most conservative run of achievements since Ronald Reagan. And that has to be stopped. Kelly has to go, and to do that they have to change the subject. So, why not lie about this Gold Star father and military hero and try to use his own honor as a

Administration Imposes Sweeping Limits
on Federal Actions Against Companies

WASHINGTON — The Trump administration has adopted new limits on the use of “guidance documents” that federal agencies have issued on almost every conceivable subject, an action that could have sweeping implications for the government’s ability to sue companies accused of violations. Guidance documents offer the government’s interpretation of laws, and often when individuals or companies face accusations of legal violations, what they have really violated are the guidance documents. Defense lawyers say the change in policy gives them a powerful tool to fend off allegations of wrongdoing against their clients. It also advances a goal declared by President Trump in his

I am not much one for rubbernecking at car crashes. (I’m not setting you up for a Congress joke, here. That comes later.) Most of the time they are scary but ultimately insignificant episodes involving a little property damage and a great deal of inconvenience. Sometimes they are much worse, and I couldn’t help looking at the car blazing in the middle of the freeway in the middle of the day, looking more like it had been bombed or hit with a rocket than like it had been involved in an accident. Thick black smoke covered both sides of the

Kim Jong-un’s sister at the Olympics

The enemy of your enemy is not your friend. Kim Yo-jong, deputy director of the Propaganda and Agitation Department of North Korea, and sister of Kim Jong-un, is no exception. This is, apparently, news to the news media. As the Winter Olympics opened in South Korea, US reporters and analysts gave Kim the TMZ treatment, going so far as to liken her to Ivanka Trump. That Ivanka comparison, by the way, brought to you by The Washington Post. A dispatch on Kim from Anna Fifield began, “They marveled at her barely-there makeup and her lack of bling.

To say our culture has gone to Hell in a handbasket is like saying the sun is hot. Every day, and sometimes it seems like every hour, there is a new example that is enough to make you want to pack up and leave the country. In the past few weeks it seems like that handbasket is speeding up. In the political world, which shockingly isn’t remotely close to the worst parts of what is happening in the country right now, things keep finding new and creative ways to devolve into the absurd. The latest example is the story of how

The media´s DACA scam isn´t working

The national media are incapable of talking about the the so-called “Dreamers,” illegal immigrants brought to the U.S. as minors, without portraying them as victims of the Trump administration. They’re victims of circumstances brought on by their own parents and nothing else. And for the sake of not buying into the B.S., we’ll refer to them here as “DACA people,” DACA being the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program that allowed them to stay in the country for an unfixed period. The program expires March 5, leaving the nearly 2 million people eligible for DACA vulnerable to deportation, unless Congress acts on

The Weird Tales of Jonathan Winer

Friday’s Washington Post featured an op-ed by an old Washington hand, late of the State Department, who was right in the middle of the dossier affair, a Mr. Jonathan M. Winer. His byline bio identifies him as “a Washington lawyer and consultant,” and “a former U.S. deputy assistant secretary of State for international law enforcement and former special envoy for Libya.” In the print edition of the paper, the op-ed is headlined with the straightforward “My role in the Trump dossier.” Online, Winer’s story got a somewhat more self-pitying, self-aggrandizing treatment: “Devin Nunes is investigating me. Here’s the truth.” Whatever the

Peeling back the layers of Hillary Clinton’s deceit

For law enforcement, Congress and even journalists, exposing misdeeds is like peeling an onion. Each layer you remove gets you closer to the truth. So it is with the scandalous behavior of the FBI during its probe into whether President Trump’s campaign conspired with Russia in 2016. One layer at a time, we’re learning how flawed and dirty that probe was. A top layer involves the texts between FBI lawyer Lisa Page and her married lover, Peter Strzok, the lead agent on the Hillary Clinton e-mail probe. They casually mention an “insurance policy” in the event Trump won the election and a

Vice President Mike Pence did not attend an Olympic dinner where he was slated to share a table with Kim Yong-nam, North Korea’s ceremonial head of state, according to reports. South Korean President Moon Jae-in hosted an event ahead of the Winter Olympics opening ceremony in Pyeongchang, South Korea, but Pence left the reception within minutes of arriving, South Korea´s Yonhap News Agency reported, citing pool reports. Pence did not face nor shake hands with Kim. Pence had been set to sit at the same table as Kim, BBC said. Yonhap added that Moon´s chief press secretary explained later that

An administration siccing the surveillance state on the opposition party’s presidential candidate based on dubious reports compiled by the favored presidential candidate’s campaign ranks as a terribly reckless strategy risking the future freedom of its architects for their future power, no? “Not if you think you will win the election and no one will ever find out,” an animated Joseph diGenova tells The American Spectator. “That’s why they did it. They thought she would win and no one would ever find out.” Alas, Hillary Clinton did not, as so many expected, win the presidency. So, the incoming administration, investigated by dubious means,

The media have become obsessed with a hypothetical conversation—one that might, or might not, take place between the president of the United States and a special counsel appointed by the Department of Justice. It´s a will-they-or-won´t-they worthy of a rom-com, with the unusual twist that there is genuine uncertainty about the result. Special Counsel Robert Mueller is implacable and President Donald Trump is unpredictable. Everyone has an opinion, and they´re being sprayed across cable news and the editorial pages. I gave up early on predicting what this administration will do. But I say this with complete confidence, based on my 23

Speed skater Shani Davis has boycotted the opening ceremony at the winter Olympics after a coin toss was used to decide who would lead out the U.S. delegation. That decision put luge star Erin Hamlin at the front of the pack. On Friday, she beamed a broad smile as she carried the U.S. flag in Pyeongchang, South Korea, to the tune of "Gangnam Style." Hamlin, 31, was chosen in a coin toss with Davis, 35, one of just a few black athletes on Team USA. That coin flip came after the two tied 4-4 in a vote among eight U.S. winter sport

The U.S. Postal Service, blasted by President Trump for enriching e-commerce giant Amazon at its own expense, posted a loss of $540 million in the last three months of the year, a period that´s typically its best quarter. The loss in the three months through December, which compared with profit of $1.44 billion a year earlier, was driven by declines in first-class mail volume, higher costs for retiree healthcare and increasing transportation expenses, the Postal Service said in a statement. The Christmas holiday period, which is the service´s first fiscal quarter, is usually buoyed by families and friends mailing cards

Former CBS News anchor Dan Rather tore into President Trump after Trump defended a former aide who was accused of domestic violence. "Mr. Trump once again proves he is indifferent to the fate of anyone other than himself. This is a low for this country that is nothing about politics. We can debate tax cuts and immigration policy and how we fund education. We can disagree about the size of our military or the best balance for protecting the environment. That is democracy," Rather wrote in a Facebook post."Debating whether credibly accused wife beaters should be allowed the honor (and

The game is over. The jig is up. Victory is certain… the trench was ignited… the enemy funneled themselves into the valley… all bait was taken… everything from here on out is simply mopping up the details. All suspicions confirmed. Why has Devin Nunes been so confident? Why did all GOP HPSCI members happily allow the Democrats to create a 10-page narrative? All questions are answered. Fughettaboudit. House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence member Chris Stewart appeared on Fox News with Judge Jeanine Pirro, and didn’t want to “make news” or spill the beans, but the unstated, between-the-lines, discussion was as subtle as

A tiny endangered butterfly could stop President Donald Trump from building his beloved border wall. A lawsuit has been filed by the Center for Biological Diversity, environmental groups and the State of California against the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. It outlines that the Quino checkerspot butterfly, Riverside fairy shrimp and the Pacific pocket mouse will be threatened if the border wall is built. The butterfly, which is native to southern California and Northern Mexico, is already on the endangered species list. The lawsuit contends that the Department of Homeland Security does not have the ability to waive environmental laws requiring review before building

Mike Tirico and Katie Couric were cohosts during NBC´s broadcast of the Winter Olympics opening ceremony, which aired in the U.S. on Friday night. The ceremony kicked off the 2018 games, which are being held in PyeongChang, South Korea this year, and it was Couric´s big return to NBC. The ceremony was filled with spectacle, symbolism, and national pride. But some viewers didn´t take too kindly to the commentary on the NBC broadcast, and took to social media to vent that they felt it distracted from the technical beauty of the event.

A travesty occured in the chambers of Congress last night and early this morning. Republicans in Congress exposed themselves as hypocrites and frauds by passing an unconscionable two-year budget deal that will explode this year’s deficit and add $1.5 trillion to the debt. This is a level of spending that is three times larger than government spending in President Obama’s final year in office. A majority of Republicans in both chambers of Congress voted for the bill, and President Trump signed it Friday morning. Whatever pretense of fiscal conservatism the Republican Party once professed has vanished from all but a few

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg said Sunday "sexism" and a "macho atmosphere" helped doom Hillary Clinton´s 2016 presidential campaign. "I think it was difficult for Hillary Clinton to get by even the macho atmosphere prevailing during that campaign, and she was criticized in a way I think no man would have been criticized," Ginsburg said during a discussion at Columbia University. The liberal-leaning associate justice, who is 84 years old, shared a stage with CNN reporter Poppy Harlow and took a long pause before continuing. "I think anyone who watched that campaign unfold would answer it the same way I did: Yes,
