Tax Cut Popularity Surges, Dem ´Blue
Wave´ May Have Crested: IBD/TIPP Poll

Investor´s Business Daily, by John Merline

Original Article

Posted By:RockyTCB, 2/6/2018 8:01:36 AM

The more the public learns about the Republican-passed tax cuts, which took effect in January, the more they like them, according to the latest IBD/TIPP poll, which also found President Trump´s favorability continuing to climb, as the Democrats´ chances of a wave election in November appear to diminish. The poll found a sharp turnaround in public opinion on the tax cuts, which were universally derided by Democrats, none of whom voted for it. Of those following news about the tax cuts closely, a plurality now says the tax cuts will help their own households and the economy. On the impact on their own household,

There was never a "Blue Wave" except in the minds of those who knew that Hillary was as shoe in to win the presidency.

Time to start a Red Tsunami, the Undemocratic Senators in red states need to be voted out of office and their needs to be ample funds supplied to the candidates. We know, thanks to Trump that the GOP has been raising lots of money. Also small states like NH there are vulnerable do nothing democrats running for congress and they are very beatable but the GOP never spend any money here. Just a little bit of money pays big dividends.
So GOP, heavily invest in your candidates this time around and you will get some very positive surprises like a Red Tsunami.

Democrats´ Turn To Socialism

Big Left Turn: Are socialists becoming the new Democratic Party mainstream? After candidates endorsed by the socialist party won nomination battles for state legislative seats in Pennsylvania and far-left progressives triumphed over moderates elsewhere, the answer seems to be yes. Four — count ´em, four — candidates backed by the Democratic Socialists of America won spots on the ballot during this week´s primary elections in the Keystone State. Two of them won´t even be opposed by a Republican in the general election. Some are writing it off as a fluke, a local aberration, but it isn´t. Increasingly, the national Democratic Party is

Politics: Before President Trump even took the oath of office, constitutional law scholar Laurence Tribe was calling for his impeachment. Tribe hasn´t stopped since. But 20 years ago, Tribe was singing a different tune about impeachment when a lawbreaking Democrat was in the White House. In early December, less than a month after Trump won the election, Tribe tweeted that impeachment should begin "on Inauguration Day." Eight days after Inauguration Day, Tribe declared that Trump was already guilty of "shredding the Constitution more monstrously than any other President in American history." He´s since claimed Trump should be impeached and removed from office for

GDP Fraud: Countries ruled by an authoritarian regime often cheat on their official GDP data, a new study shows. No surprise, really. But how do we know this? Well, it´s all about the light. What do we mean? A new working paper by Luis R. Martinez of the University of Chicago with the amusing title "How Much Should We Trust the Dictator´s GDP Estimates?" explores the unusual, but direct, link between the amount of light produced by an economy — as captured and measured through nighttime satellite photographs — and its GDP. The surprising result: Martinez concludes that economies in

Free Markets: Big businesses in Seattle face a substantial new tax to build more affordable housing. This is after the city thwarted private developers who were building affordable housing on their own dime. Only to government officials could this make any sense. This week, the city council unanimously passed a "head tax" of $275 per full-time worker on any company in the city that makes more than $20 million in gross revenues. The city says the $48 million in new taxes will go toward affordable housing and providing emergency services for the city´s swelling homeless population. Major employers like Amazon.com

Bias: You might think that national news outlets would be extra careful not to sensationalize or distort what´s happening in Gaza and the West Bank in response to the U.S. moving its embassy to Jerusalem, Israel´s capital. But if you did, you would be incredibly naive. The mainstream media went out of their way to portray the U.S. embassy move to Jerusalem as an incitement to violence by Palestinian "demonstrators." Headlines often give away the underlying bias. Typical was one from the New York Times: "Israel Kills Dozens at Gaza Border as U.S. Embassy Opens in Jerusalem." Get the linkage? It's all our fault — and the

Trump Keeps Big Promise To Israel —

Embassy Move: With the opening Monday of the U.S. Embassy in Jerusalem, President Trump didn´t just keep a promise to Israel. Despite violent Palestinian protests, Trump´s move may well reboot peace talks. Trump´s decision to relocate the U.S. Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem does more than merely restate Trump´s recognition of Jerusalem as Israel´s capital; it is an emphatic declaration of Israel´s permanency and its right to exist. Given that many nations around the world don´t recognize Israel´s right to exist — or, if they do, recognize it only within shrunken borders that would be almost impossible to defend — Trump

Leadership: Within the past few days, never-Trumper David Brooks praised President Trump. "Saturday Night Live" admitted that he´d had a good week. Willie Brown told Democrats to "stop bashing" Trump. And party officials bemoaned the liberal media´s obsession with Trump scandals. It must seem to Democrats as if they woke up in Superman´s Bizarro World. On PBS this weekend, David Brooks — who in March 2016 penned a column for The New York Times titled "No, Not Trump, Not Ever" that claimed Trump was "epically unprepared to be president" and "an affront to basic standards of honesty, virtue and citizenship" —

Fact Check: ObamaCare, Not Trump, Is
To Blame For Rise In Uninsured In 2017
Investor´s Business Daily, by Staff    Original Article
Posted By: RockyTCB- 5/14/2018 9:13:45     Post Reply
Health Care: The ranks of the uninsured climbed last year. So, naturally, President Trump is taking the blame because of his attempts to repeal ObamaCare. The fault, however, lies not with Trump, but with ObamaCare itself. A new Gallup report shows that the ranks of the uninsured climbed from 10.9% in Q4 2016 to 12.2% by Q4 2017. At first blush, it makes sense to point to Trump, given that this increase came during his first year in office. As Huffington Post put it: "Trump´s sabotage of the Affordable Care Act appears to be working." But a closer look at the data and a review of recent history shows that Trump had

Housing: Some recent California headlines caught our eye: "With No Letup In Home Prices, The California Exodus Surges" and "California First In Nation To Require Solar Panels On New Homes." See the problem? California is a virtual one-party state, and suffers for it. A case in point: At the final forum for gubernatorial candidates before the June 5 state primary, lavish promises were made by Democratic candidates to build "millions" of new homes to end the state´s housing crisis. But the fact is, California´s far-left politicians created the problem, and don´t have a clue about how to solve it. As the headlines above

Nuclear Talks: President Trump´s summit with North Korea is now set for Singapore on June 12, following North Korea´s release of three Americans it held. Has Trump finally brought the Kim regime to heel? Or is this another of North Korea´s tricks to extort aid from the West in exchange for empty promises? The good news came, as it often does with President Trump, in a tweet: "I am pleased to inform you that Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is in the air and on his way back from North Korea with the 3 wonderful gentlemen that everyone is looking so

Tax Revenues Jump 13% To Record

Economy: The federal government collected far more taxes this April than it did a year ago, despite the "budget busting" Trump tax cuts. So, we´ll ask again: Are the tax cuts paying for themselves? According to the latest monthly report from the Congressional Budget Office, revenues in April totaled $515 billion — a 13% increase over last April and an all-time high for the month. For the current 2018 fiscal year, which started last October, revenues are $83 billion higher than they were the year before — an increase of 4.3%. That´s a faster rate of growth than occurred during

With Mother´s Day a few days away, people are wondering what to get their mothers as a token of appreciation. Flowers are a classic gift. Beautiful bouquets are available everywhere, but customers in Louisiana are unique in that their florists must obtain licenses to practice their profession. After a bill that would have repealed the licensing requirement was defeated in the State Senate Agriculture Committee by a 6 to 1 vote, licensing will remain the case for the immediate future. Louisiana should remove this licensing requirement for florists. It would create more opportunities for would-be florists, and lower prices for people looking

Former Director of Intelligence James Clapper said Thursday night on CNN that it was “a good thing” there was an FBI informant spying on the Trump campaign. Clapper admitted the FBI “may have had someone who was talking to them in the campaign,” referring to President Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign. He explained away the possibility of an FBI informant spying on the campaign as the bureau was trying to find out “what the Russians were doing to try to substantiate themselves in the campaign or influence or leverage it.” Obama’s Director of National Intelligence then went on to say, “So,

A recently engaged couple from Florida were kidnapped at gunpoint, robbed and severely beaten on a trip to Mexico when they were supposed to be looking at wedding venues. Frank and Jennifer Massabki said they were lucky to survive and are still reeling from the terrifying ordeal in Mexico City in May last year. Jennifer, who was almost raped by one of their attackers, suffered a broken nose in the ordeal and had to undergo emergency surgery in a US hospital days later. Horrifying photos show them sitting at a police station in their blood-soaked clothes soon after they managed to escape.

John McCain always said he’d go down fighting, and so he has, dickering from his deathbed over CIA nominee Gina Haspel and pre-emptively disinviting President Donald Trump from his funeral, then leaving as a legacy some fierce final words for the leader of his party, who is now a political enemy. All Trump displays is “a reality-show facsimile of toughness,” the six-term Arizona senator and former GOP presidential candidate, who for a generation of Washington politicians has defined genuine toughness, writes in his forthcoming memoir. The irony of McCain’s curtain-closing contretemps with the president is that it is clearly

Wednesday on Bloomberg, Rep. Keith Ellison (D-MN) said the government should “start talking about” regulating pay disparities between CEOs and the average worker. Ellison said, “As you know, under the Dodd-Frank Financial Reform Act, it became required that the publicly traded companies would have to report the ratio between CEO pay and the median worker. It took about five years or more for the Securities Exchange Commission to create a rule. They finally did so now we have a data set of about 225 public the traded companies. We find that CEOs are paid an exorbitant amount of money’s compared workers.

Attorney Joe diGenova predicted that both Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and Attorney General Jeff Sessions´ days are numbered at the Department of Justice during a telephone interview with Newsmax´s Howie Carr Wednesday. DiGenova´s claim came after the New York Times published a report titled "Code Name Crossfire Hurricane: The Secret Origins of the Trump Investigation". The report has been interpreted by many as an attempt by sources within the "Deep State" to cushion the blow of the imminent DOJ inspector general report, which is expected to be explosive. In March, President Trump considered adding diGenova and his wife Victoria Toensing

Windsor, England - Prince Charles will walk Meghan Markle down the aisle at the royal wedding — stepping in after the father of the bride fell ill just days before the ceremony. Kensington Palace said Friday that Markle´s future father-in-law, the heir to the British throne, would walk the American actress down the aisle at St. George´s Chapel in Windsor for her wedding to Prince Harry. The palace says he "is pleased to be able to welcome Ms. Markle to the Royal Family in this way."

In the initial aftermath, KHOU reported that eight people were killed, NBC News quickly raised that number to nine with CBS News then raising it to ten. The school is located 36 miles outside of Houston and has around 1,400 students enrolled. The majority of the fatalities are students.

A family-of-five say they have never been happier after selling their five-bedroom house and everything in it - in order to move into a 180sq ft trailer. Renovator Dino Petrone, 36, blogger Ashley, 32 and sons Gabe, 8, Gavin, 7 and daughter Quinn, 4, from Ventura County, had what many would consider an ´ordinary´ life in California. However when the family stumbled across a piece of land they described as ´perfect´, they decided to downsize in order to make it their own, swapping their family home for the $8,000 (£5,900) trailer, which they´ve turned into a luxurious abode to rival

Starbucks´ day of racial-bias training for its baristas can´t come soon enough. With less than two weeks to go before the coffee chain closes stores nationwide to educate its nearly 175,000 workers on how not to discriminate against others, Starbucks (SBUX) this week found itself apologizing for doing just that. (Tweet) The apology on social media came after a customer at a Starbucks in La Cañada Flintridge, California, found the word "Beaner" -- a derogatory term for Mexicans -- printed on his coffee drink instead of "Pedro," his name. A friend of Pedro's who translated for him told CBS Los Angeles that his "friend was also sad"

"It would be at best irresponsible, and at worst potentially illegal, for members of Congress to use their positions to learn the identity of an FBI source for the purpose of undermining the ongoing investigation into Russian interference in our election," Warner, the top Democrat on the Senate Intelligence Committee, said in a statement.

Democrats sure do seem to have a lot of strange “protected classes” lately. Obviously, they’ve always liked to put people into groups, fan the flames of a victim mentality, and then play those groups against each other. It’s just what they do. But, in the last couple of weeks, they’ve decided to defend Iran, Hamas, and now – the icing on the cake – MS-13. If you’re unfamiliar with MS-13, and I pray to God you are, they’re a violent gang made up mostly of Salvadorans whose motto is “Murder, Rape, and Control.” They are, unarguably, one of the most violent gangs on the face of the earth, and the horror stories shared by their victims’
