Senate Republicans want to pass Obama's 2017 budget, not Trump's


Donald Trump has asked Republicans who control Congress to delay action on a 2017 budget, until he gets into office. House Speaker Paul Ryan has apparently agreed, but Senate Republicans have other ideas.

Speaker Paul D. Ryan said on Thursday that the House would go along with the incoming administration’s request and pass a stopgap spending bill that would keep the government running at current spending levels until March.

But Republican leaders in the Senate did not immediately sign on to the plan, reflecting their desire to get contentious spending battles out of the way this year.

Senator Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, the Republican leader, left open the possibility of an agreement with the House [but he won't commit to it now].

But signaling that the longstanding tensions between the House and Senate may not abate under a more unified Republican government, some Senate Republicans expressed concern that waiting until early next year could distract them from other legislative priorities.

“My opinion is that it would be better to get this year done now,” said Senator Roy Blunt, Republican of Missouri and a member of the Appropriations Committee. “My preference is to do it now and not get bogged down early next year.”

Senator Lamar Alexander of Tennessee, another Republican on the Appropriations Committee, [said]

“I would think the last thing the Trump administration would want to do is spend time cleaning up an appropriations bill that was supposed to have been passed in the previous year under Obama,” he said.

Alexander, who is close to the leadership, rarely says anything that hasn't been approved by McConnell first.

The way the budget process has worked for the last 8 years is that Obama told the Congress exactly how much money he wanted, and the Congress, afraid of Obama shutting down the government and blaming them, gave Obama 100% of what he wanted. This is the process that Blunt, Alexander, and perhaps even McConnell still want to continue, even with Trump's election as president. If they do this again, this will needlessly lock Obama's budget into Trump's first year as president.

As Mark Levin is so fond of saying, we have to get rid of Mitch McConnell the next time he is up for reelection.

Hate crimes against Muslims rises to slightly above zero


The Muslims-are-victims propaganda mill has been operating in overtime ever since Donald Trump won the presidential election. Not a day passes without a story about a young Muslim child being told that Donald Trump hates Muslims and their lives will be full of discrimination and hatred. Continuing with that theme, the media has breathlessly reported a 67% increase in hate crimes against Muslims in 2015. That's a big increase! That probably means the absolute number of alleged hate crimes against Muslims must be some huge number, like... 50,000? 20,000? 10,000? At least 5,000?

Stephen Bannon appointment triggers surge of Whiteophobia


Stephen Bannon's appointment as Chief Strategist for Donald Trump has triggered a disturbing surge of Whiteophobia in the media. Whiteophobia is the irrational fear of white people, and the fear that white people might do you harm, even in a white majority country where Asian and African-like massacres, rapes, and genocide are unknown; even in a country where tens of millions of non-white immigrants flood through the borders; even in a country where white rulers have been doing their best for decades to make America as non-white as possible thorugh unchecked immigration.

Why Obama's legacy is so easily reversible


It brings a smile to my face to read one article after another detailing how President Obama's legacies can be so easily undone by Donald Trump. The reason why so many of Obama's initiatives can be undone is because so many of them were done without authorizing legislation. Obama acted unilaterally and the Congress, composed of timid Republicans, never mustered up the courage to object.
