Why does Trump's Sanctuary City policy have no teeth?
As Rick Moran noted, President Trump's threat to cut off funding for Sanctuary Cities really about a slice of funding of a very small $27 million dollar pie, because only one federal grant program would be subject to this rule. In practice a major city might lose a five or six figure grant. But that's pocket change for big cities with budgets in the hundreds of millions or even billions of dollars. I was surprised to learn that Trump's threat to "cut off" funding doesn't even apply to all Justice Department grants, just the ones in this one tiny program.
Trump welcomes Syrian illegal aliens Australia doesn't want
It's bad enough that Trump violated his own campaign promise and continues the illegal, unconstitutional "Dreamer" amnesty created by Obama. But now Trump is going out of his way to take the most dangerous illegal aliens that other countries don't want!
Schumer plays Trump for a fool on Obamacare, Border Wall funding
Is there a passage in "The Art of the Deal" which states, "Give your final, best offer first. Then, when it's rejected, start negotiating from there with your opponent to give him everything he wants."? No? Because that's the strategy employed by President Trump in dealing with Chuck Schumer.
Trump tells Dreamers to "Rest Easy"
President Trump, facing criticism for deporting exactly one "Dreamer" out of thousands, wanted to reassure children of illegal aliens, some of them in their 30's, that he was not going to deport them.
Will Trump's reversal on Syrian refugees make him a one term President?
Supporters of Donald Trump, many of whom prominently campaigned for his election, are outraged by all the campaign promises he has reversed himself on--NATO, military action in Syria, the Federal Reserve, and the repeal of Obamacare, to name a few. But the straw that may break the camel's back is the issue of immigration and border security.
Trump flipflops on Syria, NATO, China, the Fed, EXIM Bank
President Trump has changed his positions on Syria, NATO, China, the Fed, and the EXIM Bank (not to mention Obamacare repeal and prosecuting Hillary Clinton), all within the past few days.
Lib Media desperate to declare White House egg roll a failure
The liberal media, so desperate for anti-Trump stories to feed into its narrative, is looking to use something as innocuous as the White House Easter egg roll as a yardstick to show "yet another" failure of the Trump administration. There are many legitimate grounds to criticize the Trump administration on ("Dreamers", more Syrian refugees, not supporting full Obamacare repeal), but an Easter egg roll? Come on!
Meet the liberals President Trump is considering for Chief of Staff
President Trump is reportedly considering replacing Reince Priebus, his chief of staff, and Steve Bannon, his chief strategist with a new chief of staff.
Kushner "Democrats" rising, Bannon "nationalists" falling in Trump White House
Steve Bannon is said to be in the ideological fight of his life with President Trump's son-in-law, Jared Kushner, and not winning at the moment.
Trump declares war on conservatives, cements one term presidency
President Trump officially declared war on conservatives yesterday. His ostensible target was the House Freedom Caucus, which declined to vote for the "Obamacare Lite" bill that Trump vigorously lobbied for. Trump tweeted:
Trump's plan B: work with Dems to "improve" Obamacare
President Trump cut himself a big slice of humble pie as he frantically called reporters from The New York Times and the Washington Post and pleaded with them to spin his lack of success in passing "Trumpcare" as something other than a personal failure for his presidency.
Trump says Obamacare here to stay if "Obamacare-lite" voted down
I've become convinced that President Trump is a political hermaphrodite. The top half is Republican--pushing for lower taxes, border security, and cuts to counterproductive regulations. But if the top half of President Trump is Republican, the bottom half is Hillary Clinton, a side of the President which wants to keep amnesty in place for millions of "Dreamers", wants to spend a trillion dollars on "infrastructure" like Obama, and now is fighting tooth and nail to preserve the worst parts of Obamacare.
Trump orders raises for overpaid federal bureaucrats
President Trump ordered all federal workers to get an almost 2% raise. Two percent, what's the big deal? Well, it's a big deal because federal salaries and benefits are already grossly inflated.
Trump threatens Republicans who vote against "Obamacare-lite"
President Trump, who promised to totally repeal Obamacare, is threatening Republicans with political retribution if they do not support the House bill which would leave the worst elements of Obamacare intact.
Trump Admin. promises to do nothing about the national debt
One of the most popular things to do in Washington D.C. is to come up with a "plan" to eliminate the deficit in ten years. For some reason politicians always come up with a ten year plan. I think they pick ten years out so it is short enough to take somewhat seriously, but long enough for a politician to serve in Washington and then to leave before the ten years are up. In any event, people forget about the ten year plans relatively quickly so in two or four years a "new" 10 year plan to eliminate deficit can be created, even before the old one has "come to fruition".
Trump's budget is bold, brave, and ultimately pointless
There is quite a lot to like about President Trump's first budget. Let me give a few examples:
Trump was wrong to try to appease courts on entry ban
Is anyone really surprised that an Obama appointed federal judge imposed an injunction on President Trump's second attempt at a modified travel ban?
Liberal professor beaten by leftist students blames Trump
What do you do when you're a liberal professor at liberal university and you get beaten up by left wing students?
Liberals fantasize about being "slapped in the face" by Donald Trump
I was reading an article about possible cuts to HUD, the department of Housing and Urban Development, and a catchy phrase caught my eye:
President Trump owes Mark Levin a debt of gratitude
Just a week ago, President Trump was embattled. Democrats were lining up to go before cameras to ask "Did [Trump associate x] meet with the Russians? When? What did they say? We need a full investigation!"
Trump was clearly on the defensive.
Nutty Defense Secretary wants Islamists, Obama leftovers in senior posts
Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis wants to fill the most senior posts at the Defense Department with people sympathetic to Islamists, or almost as bad, people sympathetic to Barack Obama.
Mark Levin takes credit for stopping Trump "Amnesty Announcement"
At the opening of his show yesterday, conservative talk show host Mark Levin took credit for preventing President Trump from offering amnesty for "Dreamer" illegal aliens. Levin said that right before Trump's address to Congress, Trump met with media executives and told them he was willing to give amnesty for children of illegal aliens, the so-called "Dreamers". Levin said that Trump was rewriting his speech until right before he gave it, and Levin believed Trump planned to offer this amnesty in that speech.
The vast divide between Trump's private and public comments on immigration
I loved the moment during President Trump's State of the Union address when he announced that the Department of Homeland Security was setting up an office to publicize victims of illegal alien crime. The gasps and moans from the Democrats were very audible. I also loved how Trump talked about building a wall and enforcing the law.
Two weeks later, still no revised executive order from Trump
Immediately after the Ninth Circuit put Trump's entry executive order on hold, Trump promised a revised executive order in just a few days. This was an emergency situation, we were told. Each day we were exposed to visitors from those seven dangerous countries was a day that America was potentially put into danger.
Trump violates the Constitution exactly as Obama did
When Obama granted mass amnesty to "Dreamers", children of illegal aliens, conservatives were outraged. As a policy decision it was an awful one. But as a legal one it was even worse. Obama never sought legislation from Congress to legalize the "Dreamers", in fact, on many occasions, Obama lamented that he didn't have the authority to do so. But then he changed his mind and decided he did have the authority to do so, and did so. Obama violated the Constitution, creating his own legislation without the Legislative branch, acting dictatorially. Conservatives were rightly horrified.
