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!

Democrats´ ´Sudden´ Hard-Left Turn
Has Been Years In The Making

Left Turn: Long-time political watchers have been shocked in recent months to see formerly powerful Democratic Party leaders ousted by far-left challenges within their own party. The once-proud centrist party of the working class, the Democrats are now a party of the hard left. Recent events show just how far things have gone: 28-year-old Democratic Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortes beat New York Rep. Joe Crowley, the No. 4 ranking Democrat in the House, in a primary challenge. Despite a series of embarrassing gaffes in just over a week, the Democrat-safe New York district she´s in guarantees she´ll win. In California, far left state Senator

Sparks fly at hearing on
anti-conservative bias in tech

Lawmakers clashed Tuesday at a contentious hearing over claims that social media platforms and tech companies are biased against conservative viewpoints. Republicans on the House Judiciary Committee said the hearing addressed a serious issue. But Democrats said the hearing, coming one day after President Trump dismissed Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election during a press conference with Russian President Vladimir Putin, was a waste of time. “This committee has oversight of the Department of Justice,” said Rep. Ted Lieu (D-Calif.). “Our president also disparaged the Department of Justice. Are we having a hearing on that? No.” Rep. Jerrold Nadler (N.Y.), the panel´s

Media Bias: If you rely on the nation´s top news sites to determine what was really important about the Trump-Putin Helsinki summit, the answer would be: How did Trump-hating late-night talk-show hosts react? We are not kidding. This is how low the mainstream press has sunk. On the front page of the Washington Post´s website this morning was a picture of "The Late Show" host Stephen Colbert and this headline: "Late-night hosts skewer Trump." How is this news exactly? That same headline could literally have run any day of the week for the past two years. It is so predictable that it

Democrats´ Left Turn Into Their Past

Extremist confrontations threatening Democrats today similarly ended their national dominance fifty years ago. What 1968´s Democratic Convention did in Chicago, current liberal activists are seeking to do nationwide by confronting Trump administration officials wherever they find them. Today´s Democratic establishment is right to fear that, just as half century ago, America´s broader electorate will be alienated by their party´s extreme left. Democrats´ 1968 Chicago convention was no accident, but it was assuredly a disaster. Chicago, a Democratic bastion and old-line political machine under Mayor Richard Daley, had been instrumental — if not determinant — in Kennedy defeating Nixon eight years earlier. With the

Dems Cry ´Sabotage´ When Trump

Regulations: After U.S. District Court in New Mexico found that a complex and highly controversial ObamaCare cross-subsidy scheme was "arbitrary and capricious," the Trump administration temporarily halted the program. Democrats then attacked Trump for trying to "sabotage" ObamaCare. At issue is a part of ObamaCare that few have ever heard about. It´s called "risk adjustment." And at its core it is nothing more than a massively complex system of cross-subsidies between insurance companies in each state. ObamaCare created the risk adjustments to compensate for the market distortions its insurance regulations created. Because ObamaCare bans insurers from setting premiums based on health risks,

Left´s Claims Of ´Treason´ On Trump-Putin
Talks Smack Of Dangerous Political Hysteria

Summit: We don´t believe President Trump served his presidency well by meeting with Russian leader Vladimir Putin in Helsinki. It was a summit without an agenda, and as far as we can tell achieved nothing concrete politically or strategically. His performance at the press conference deserves criticism. That said, the hysterical response from the mainstream media, the Washington leftist power elite and the progressives that are the new de facto rulers of the Democratic Party was so extreme it makes one think they´re losing it. Following Trump´s talk with Putin, lefty talking heads exploded with talk of "Treason." Former CIA Director John Brennan,

Fight Against $15: Democrats
Push To Repeal Minimum Wage

Economics: "Fight for $15" is the rallying cry for most Democrats these days. But soon after Washington, D.C., voters approved a hike in tipped wages to $15, Democrats on the city council moved to repeal it. That´s what happens when ideology crashes into reality. On Tuesday, 7 of the 13 members of Washington´s city council sponsored a bill to jettison the wage hike for tipped workers that 56% of D.C. voters had approved by a ballot initiative less than a month before. Under Initiative 77, the workers would see their minimum wage climb from the current $3.89 an hour to $15 an

The Export-Import Bank
Doesn´t Make America Great

Having launched tariff battles against China and other "unfair traders," the Trump administration is now trying to revive trade subsidies for them. Both moves will damage the U.S. economy, unless Congress intervenes. The trade subsidies at issue are financial instruments that the U.S. Export-Import Bank provides to a select group of foreign companies and governments to subsidize their purchases of U.S. exports. China, Mexico and Canada ranked among the biggest beneficiaries in previous years. During the past three years, however, the bank has lacked a president and a board quorum — and therefore been barred from issuing export loans and credit guarantees

Trump To Britain: Decision Time On Brexit

Brexit: U.S. trade ties with Britain are being held hostage by the U.K.´s protracted departure from the European Union. Better to make the exit quick and definitive than long and drawn out. It´s been fun, as usual, to watch President Trump on an international stage as he stirs things up. In an exclusive interview with the British Sun, he criticized British Prime Minister Theresa May´s plans for a "soft Brexit," with continued close ties to the EU. And he suggested that her conservative foe, Boris Johnson, would make a great prime minister. But a day later, it had all blown over. Trump

Supreme Court: Now the long, hard slog of getting a Supreme Court nominee onto the bench begins. As always, Democrats, the FBI and the media have launched into an intense investigation of Judge Brett Kavanaugh´s background. And, so far, there´s not much grist for the old Washington, D.C. scandal mill. But it´s not for a lack of trying. We´ve found out that Kavanaugh, despite his extraordinary legal mind, is kind of a regular guy. He loves baseball. He volunteers to feed the homeless at his church. He uses his credit card too much at times. Everyone who knows him thinks he´s

Income Tax Revenues Are Up 9% This
Year — Is Trump Tax Cut Paying For Itself?
Investor´s Business Daily, by Staff    Original Article
Posted By: RockyTCB- 7/12/2018 6:43:57     Post Reply
Supply-Side Economics: Democrats scoffed at Republicans who said the Trump tax cuts would at least partially pay for themselves through higher economic growth. But it looks like the GOP had it right all along, as revenues climb. The latest monthly budget report from the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office finds that revenues from federal income taxes were $76 billion higher in the first half of this year, compared with the first half of 2017. That´s a 9% jump, even though the lower income tax withholding schedules went into effect in February. The CBO says the gain "largely reflects increases in wages and salaries." For

Global Warming: Once more, science provides bad news for global warming alarmists. U.S. CO2 levels again declined during 2017, despite overall global output again rising. Credit U.S. fracking and the natural gas boom. But don´t worry: the hysteria won´t end. The new report, based on U.S. data, shows clearly the U.S. continuing downward trend. "The U.S. emitted 15.6 metric tons of CO2 per person in 1950," wrote the Daily Caller. "After rising for decades, it´s declined in recent years to 15.8 metric tons per person in 2017, the lowest measured levels in 67 years." That´s right. 67 years. Green groups and leftist climate

Former CIA Director John Brennan continued Tuesday to criticize President Trump’s performance at the Helsinki summit, saying Mr. Trump could have potentially risked intelligence capabilities during his private meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin and the intel community might begin to withhold intelligence from Mr. Trump. In light of Mr. Trump’s comments about the intelligence community, Mr. Brennan said “there very well might be” a shift in the covert community to “withhold vital intelligence” in order to protect that information. “Dan Coats and Gina Haspel need to be on top of their game now and speak truth to power,” he

Chicago may soon become the largest municipality in the U.S. to test a universal basic income program. Chicago alderman Ameya Pawar recently proposed legislation that would provide 1,000 families with a $500 monthly stipend -- no questions asked. The bill already has the backing of the majority of city lawmakers, and Pawar hopes to soon work with Mayor Rahm Emanuel to implement the pilot program, The Intercept reported. “Nearly 70 percent of Americans don’t have $1,000 in the bank for an emergency,” Pawar told the outlet. “UBI could be an incredible benefit for people who are working and are having

Democratic Tennessee Rep. Steve Cohen on Monday called for the “military folks” to save America from President Donald Trump after Trump’s much-criticized press conference with Russian President Vladimir Putin. “Where are our military folks? The Commander in Chief is in the hands of our enemy!” Cohen wrote on Twitter, using language suggestive of a military coup. (Tweet) Cohen later said that he was in no way calling for a coup. “No coup called for,” he wrote, claiming it unlikely that someone would call for a coup on Twitter. Cohen’s bizarre tweet was similar to one from former Obama CIA Director

When Presidents Trump and Vladimir Putin ended their joint press conference in Helsinki, the punditocracy predictably swarmed all over it like ants around a pile of crumbs. Was Trump winking at Putin? Did he really say he believes Putin more than he believes Robert Mueller about whether Russia interfered in the 2016 election? Former Gus Hall enthusiast John Brennan, off his meds again, tweeted that the presser was “treasonous.” Professional chatterer Anderson Cooper said it was “perhaps one of the most disgraceful performances by an American president at a summit.” Every phrase, every gesture of the event will be picked

Former FBI Director James Comey on Tuesday said “history has its eyes on us” and encouraged Americans to vote for Democrats in the upcoming midterm elections. Comey, who was fired by President Donald Trump in May 2017, issued a tweet urging Americans to snub Republicans this November. “This Republican Congress has proven incapable of fulfilling the Founders’ design that ‘Ambition must … counteract ambition,’” tweeted the former FBI director, a longtime supporter of Republicans. “All who believe in this country’s values must vote for Democrats this fall.

A 63-year-old father of 43 children was found beaten to death Sunday afternoon in his home on Chicago´s West Side. The body of John Hearring -- known as Nicholas -- was discovered with head trauma in his upstairs apartment in the 1000-block of North Leamington Avenue in the South Austin neighborhood. Multiple family members confirmed that he had 43 children. Hearring was a long-time resident there and well-known in the neighborhood. "He was the nicest man you´d ever want to meet. I don´t get it. All this killing is so senseless and now they are targeting the elderly," said Gwen Bridgeforth, his daughter-in-law.

JOHANNESBURG — Without ever mentioning President Donald Trump by name, former U.S. President Barack Obama on Tuesday took aim at “strongman politics” in his highest-profile speech since leaving office, urging people around the world to respect human rights and other values now under threat in an impassioned address marking the 100th anniversary of anti-apartheid leader Nelson Mandela’s birth. Obama’s speech to a cheering crowd of thousands in South Africa countered many of Trump’s policies, rallying people around the world to keep alive the ideas that Mandela worked for including democracy, diversity and tolerance.

There is an American besides President Donald Trump who was privy to the two-hour private meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin – a government translator who sat in on the entire meeting. Marina Gross, a State Department translator, was pictured along with Trump, Putin, and Putin´s translator at their Helsinki summit. Interest in her role has only grown, after furious critics accused Trump of ´treason´ for failing to push Putin publicly in any way at their Helsinki summit. It was after that meeting that Trump emerged only to engage in a disastrous press conference where he took Putin´s denial of election interference over

Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is the new darling of the Democratic party. In a recent interview, however, the upstart politico running in a hyper-liberal district in New York did not show command of the issues. Ocasio-Cortez was being interviewed by Margaret Hoover on the PBS show ‘Firing Line.’ Hoover asked very basic, softball questions of the young congressional candidate. In explaining her positions on the economy, Hoover asked Ocasio-Cortez “Do you think that capitalism has failed to deliver for working class Americans?” Hoover cited a currently booming US economy and low unemployment.

Was Russia´s effort to interfere in the 2016 election the most important issue on the table at President Trump´s Helsinki summit with Vladimir Putin? No. But it´s not an unimportant issue, either, and Trump knew the American press is obsessed with it. So he knew it would play a big role in the Trump-Putin post-summit news conference. There are all sorts of aspects to the Trump-Russia affair, but in light of special counsel Robert Mueller´s decision to indict 12 Russian intelligence agents on the Friday before the Monday summit, the president also knew reporters would want to hear him specifically affirm
