Good Economic News: Pro-Growth Larry
Kudlow Is Trump´s New Econ Adviser

Investor´s Business Daily, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:RockyTCB, 3/16/2018 7:10:24 AM

Markets: The morning after President Trump´s economic adviser Gary Cohn resigned in early March, stocks dropped amid concern that Trump was losing a free-market advisor. So, it´s worth noting that they jumped the morning after Trump announced he´d hired Larry Kudlow as Cohn´s replacement. Anyone who has followed Kudlow — whose columns have appeared in IBD for many years — already knows why he´s a smart choice. With a pedigree as a private-sector economist — he was chief economist at Bear Sterns — Kudlow understands the real-world impact of economic policies better than most ivory tower, prize-winning academics. For decades, Kuldow has been

I like Larry. Also he does not seem like the type to leak!

Congress Can Only Blame Itself
For President Trump´s Tariff Wars
Investor´s Business Daily, by Matthew Spalding    Original Article
Posted By: RockyTCB- 3/29/2018 7:14:21     Post Reply
President Trump recently announced his decision to impose tariffs of 25% and 10% on imported steel and aluminum. Legislators, especially Republicans, were aghast. Speaker Paul Ryan is "extremely worried" about the consequences of tariffs and urged the White House not to advance the plan. Representative Kevin Brady, chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee, and 106 other Members of Congress sent a letter outlining specific policy suggestions to limit the proposed tariffs. Senator Ben Sasse complained about "kooky 18th-century protectionism." But while tariffs have been in the Twitter spotlight, they´re not new. Indeed, tariffs have been around from the beginning.

Trump´s Attacks On Amazon Make
No Sense — With One Exception

Subsidies: Amazon´s stock price took a hit after news that President Trump wants to "take on" the company for a host of alleged abuses. Most of Trump´s complaints are misguided or plain wrong. Except for the part where he says that taxpayers are subsidizing Amazon´s shipping costs. The news site Axios — founded by establishment journalists Mike Allen and Jim VandeHei — reported on Wednesday that Trump is "obsessed with Amazon (AMZN)" and has "wondered if there may be any way to go after Amazon with antitrust or competition law." Trump, the story says, complains that the company "is killing shopping malls

The Stunning Statistical Fraud
Behind The Global Warming Scare

Global Warming: The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration may have a boring name, but it has a very important job: It measures U.S. temperatures. Unfortunately, it seems to be a captive of the global warming religion. Its data are fraudulent. What do we mean by fraudulent? How about this: NOAA has made repeated "adjustments" to its data, for the presumed scientific reason of making the data sets more accurate. Nothing wrong with that. Except, all their changes point to one thing — lowering previously measured temperatures to show cooler weather in the past, and raising more recent temperatures to show

Yes, Gun Control Advocates
Do Want To Take Away Your
Guns — Just Ask John Paul Stevens

Bill of Rights: In a New York Times op-ed, former Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens flat out calls for repealing the 2nd Amendment. While his reasoning makes one wonder how he got on the Court in the first place, he does expose the true agenda of gun control advocates. Stevens begins by praising the "civic engagement" of the youthful protesters, and says Congress should respond by passing a ban on semi-automatic weapons — a ban that was completely ineffective when it was in place for a decade in the 1990s. He wants to raise the age to buy a gun

Do Not Sign A DNR Before You Read This

Patients, beware. When you´re admitted to a hospital, you´re routinely encouraged to sign a Do Not Resuscitate order, also known as a DNR. Don´t assume it will be applied only in extreme circumstances. New research shows having those three letters on your chart could put you on course to getting less medical and nursing care throughout your stay. Fewer MRIs and CT scans, fewer medications or even fewer bedside visits from doctors. A DNR could cost you your life. Having a DNR means that if your heart stops or you can´t breathe, medical staff will let you die naturally, instead of rushing




California´s Loopy ´Sanctuary State´ Law —
Is The Golden State Trying To Secede?
Investor´s Business Daily, by Staff    Original Article
Posted By: RockyTCB- 3/28/2018 6:49:22     Post Reply
California: There may be hope in California yet. Despite the state´s political descent into madness by illegally declaring itself a "sanctuary state," the resistance it growing. California has a political and legal fight on its hands, one it can´t win. The state´s Sanctuary State Law has been challenged by the Justice Department. Why? In effect, California´s morally preening far-left government says its law matters more than U.S. law. The once-Golden State has made it legal to interfere with the federal government´s duty to enforce U.S. immigration laws. That includes arresting, trying and deporting those who come here illegally and commit crimes. Attorney

Did Facebook Break The Law
To Help Obama Win In 2012?

Elections: Facebook now faces myriad legal actions for its apparent misuse of private data on its members. But one possible legal problem that isn´t getting any attention involves whether Facebook (FB) made, and the Obama campaign accepted, illegal "in-kind" contributions to Obama´s 2012 re-election effort. As we noted earlier, the Obama campaign´s use of Facebook data dwarfed anything Trump did. Cambridge Analytica purchased data from an academic, who gathered it in 2014 through an app that said the data would only be used for academic purposes. There´s no question that was misleading. But by the time the general election rolled around, the

Hillary Clinton is being universally panned by Republicans and Democrats for her recent rant against people who voted for Donald Trump. While giving a speech in Mumbai, India, Clinton boasted that she "won the places that represent two-thirds of America´s gross domestic product." She went on: "So I won the places that are optimistic, diverse, dynamic, moving forward." As evidence, she pointed to places such as Illinois, where she won by sizable margins. Then she added that those who voted against her "didn´t like black people getting rights, and don´t like women ... getting jobs." Many have commented on how her

Facebook Privacy Scandal: Why
Regulation Is Not The Answer

Regulation: As Facebook´s privacy crisis grows, so too are calls for the government to regulate it, including from Republicans, the tech industry and Mark Zuckerberg himself. What could be wrong with that? Utah Republican Rep. Chris Stewart, for example, told CNN that "I actually think it probably is" time to regulate Facebook (FB) and other social media companies because "these companies gather our private information and they monetize it." Speaking at a China Development Forum in Beijing, Apple (APPL) Chairman Tim Cook said, when asked about Facebook, "I think that this certain situation is so dire and has become so large that

Russian Collusion? Trump Just Smacked
Down Putin By Expelling 60 Spies

Russia: By expelling 60 Russian "diplomats" and closing a Russian consulate, President Trump has sent a strong signal to Russia that the U.S. and its allies will stand together when Vladimir Putin badly misbehaves. If Putin didn´t get the memo, he has it now. This might be the first fruits of Trump´s new national security team, with Mike Pompeo as secretary of state and John Bolton as national security advisor, both fresh faces. Trump named those two hardliners — and we mean that as a compliment, not as a slight — to key national security slots because he wanted a more




The Worst Part Of The GOP´s Massive $1.3
Trillion Spending Bill Is What´s Not In It

Big Spenders: Some Republicans are complaining that they don´t know what´s in the massive $1.3 trillion "omnibus" spending bill they will be voting on this week. But it´s what´s not in the bill that´s the most troubling. Republicans used to love to tout around copies of ObamaCare, pointing out how its massive size — around 2,300 pages — was a sign of runaway government. The spending bill Congress will approve this week is nearly as big, weighing in at 2,232 pages. And, like ObamaCare, no one who votes on it will have read the bill before casting their ballots. Then there´s the amount

Trade: President Trump´s decision to slap tariffs of $50 billion of imports from China for that nation´s routine theft of American intellectual property may well be a political masterstroke that results in U.S. companies getting fairer treatment from China. But, as a long-term answer to our economic differences, it comes up far short. China didn´t wait long. It immediately imposed trade restrictions on 128 U.S. goods, including "wine, fresh frutit dried fruit and nuts, steel pipes, modified ethanol and ginseng," according to CNBC. While just $3 billion in U.S. sales are affected, a Chinese government statement said it would hit other U.S.

Parkland, Fla., high school shooting survivor David Hogg said Thursday that he will only accept an apology from Fox News host Laura Ingraham for mocking him over college rejections if she denounced her network´s coverage of the Parkland students pushing for gun control. "I will only accept your apology only if you denounce the way your network has treated my friends and I in this fight. It’s time to love thy neighbor, not mudsling at children," Hogg tweeted Thursday. (Snip) Four companies — TripAdvisor, Wayfair, Expedia and pet food brand Nutrish — pulled their ads from Ingraham’s show on Thursday.

David Hogg, one of the most outspoken survivors of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting, is pushing back against Laura Ingraham’s taunts. Ingraham, a conservative radio host and author, teased Hogg about the 17-year-old’s rejections from college. “David Hogg Rejected By Four Colleges To Which He Applied and whines about it,” she tweeted Wednesday with a link to a Daily Wire article. “(Dinged by UCLA with a 4.1 GPA...totally predictable given acceptance rates.)” Hogg told TMZ that he had been rejected from UC Los Angeles, UC San Diego, UC Santa Barbara and UC Irvine, but accepted at Florida Atlantic University, Cal Poly

Hillary Clinton is striking back at critics telling her to “shut up” following her 2016 loss, saying, “They never said that to any man who was not elected.” “And I had one of the young people who works for me go back and do a bit of research. They never said that to any man who was not elected. I was kind of struck by that,” Clinton said. Clinton’s remarks came in response to a question from Eagleton Institute of Politics’ director Ruth Mandel about the former Democratic presidential nominee’s reaction to those who say she should “get off the

(Snip) As news of the boycotts began coming out on Thursday, Ms. Ingraham apologized. “On reflection, in the spirit of Holy Week, I apologize for any upset or hurt my tweet caused him or any of the brave victims of Parkland,” she said, extending an invitation for Mr. Hogg to appear on the show.

In another interview with his longtime atheist friend, Eugenio Scalfari, Pope Francis claims that Hell does not exist and that condemned souls just "disappear." This is a denial of the 2,000-year-old teaching of the Catholic Church about the reality of Hell and the eternal existence of the soul. (snip) You have never spoken to me about the souls who died in sin and will go to hell to suffer it for eternity. You have however spoken to me of good souls, admitted to the contemplation of God. But what about bad souls? Where are they punished?" Pope Francis says, "They are not

Former Obama administration attorney general Eric Holder speculated this week on what would incentivize him to run for president. Holder was asked in an interview with the New York Times about running for the highest office in the land. The reporter asked, “If you were gonna do it, why would you do it. If you didn’t do it, why would you not do it?” Holder said “If I were gonna do it, I’d do it because I would have concluded that maybe I could unify the country… help unify the country.” Holder said he could also “advance” and “repair” the country as

I’ve heard the stories swirling around the President described in a number of ways: “scandalous,” “tawdry,” “unbecoming,” “tabloid trash.” But the word that first comes to my mind is “humiliating.” That the President of the United States is being sued by a porn star over an alleged affair they had years ago is humiliating for the country, certainly. That the figurehead of the Republican Party, not too long ago the party of family values, is alleged to have had another affair with a playmate just after his son was born, is humiliating for the GOP. Or, it should be anyway. But worst of

Failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton believes her experience in politics serves as a model for women around the world. “I have often thought that I am a kind of a Rorschach test for people who are trying to make sense, not just of me personally, but of women’s roles and women’s expanded opportunities, in not only America but around the world,” she said during a paid college speech at Rutgers University. Clinton expressed disappointment that she was no longer seen as an individual because she had been in the public spotlight for 25 years. She pointed out that she was

Thursday at Rutgers University, former secretary of state and presidential candidate Hillary Clinton said she was concerned President Donald Trump had caused a “loss of leadership and leverage” in global politics. The reason: She is concerned American’s word “is no longer trusted.” When asked what her concerns about our “democratic stability” in the era of Trump were, Clinton replied, “I worry about the degradation of institutions, the dismissing of norms and values, because remember, a democracy is fundamentally held together by trust.” She continued, “I would like to get back to where Republicans and Democrats argue about all the policies

At the beginning of March, the Academy Awards featured performers talking about “intersectionality” and Dreamers and jokes about how an Oscar-nominated movie about a gay awakening was made to annoy Mike Pence — and the show got the lowest ratings in history. Tuesday night, the premiere episode of the revival of “Roseanne” featured a working-class grandmother saying grace before dinner and concluding with thanks for “making America great again” — and the show got the highest ratings of any network program in six years. Hollywood is now faced with indisputable evidence that there’s a huge potential audience out there for programs that

Did anyone not see this coming? Michael Avenatti, the attorney for porn star Stormy Daniels, said on “CBS This Morning” Wednesday that his client would be willing to accept a settlement in her lawsuit, which seeks to void a 2016 nondisclosure agreement regarding her alleged affair with President Trump.

Larry King has an interesting tidbit for why the Second Amendment should be repealed -- and it´s got to do with what he says is the real reason it was created ... to fight off slaves. (Snip) Larry says he´s completely on board, adding that the antiquated provision needs to be rewritten due to unclear language ... and also, because it´s "real" purpose is moot now. He backs a widely discussed theory that the Second Amendment was pushed for by Southern senators who simply wanted to fend off potential slave uprisings. How about that? Fact is ... there was a
