    As CNN’s Acosta Returns, White House Seeks ‘Decorum’ for Press

    CNN reporter Jim Acosta is back in the White House, and the Trump administration is working on rules for “decorum” during press conferences.

    “People have to behave. We’re writing up rules and regulations,” President Donald Trump told reporters Friday afternoon, when asked about the court ruling. He said other reporters were treated unfairly, “because you had somebody interrupting you. With the rules and regulations, we will end up back in court and we will win.”

    U.S. District Judge Timothy Kelly, of the District of Columbia, granted CNN a temporary restraining to halt the Trump administration from blocking Acosta’s access to the White House, and ordered his press pass to be returned. READ MORE...

    Why Free Market Policies Are Key to Empowering Women

    Most people agree that women deserve the chance to advance up the economic latter. The real question is, how can that be achieved?

    What many don’t realize is that women’s advancement doesn’t require gender quotas or affirmative action. What’s needed, above all, is free market policies that allow women to make their own choices.

    Ivanka Trump understands that as few do. Earlier this week, she tweeted out her support for the Women’s Entrepreneurship and Economic Empowerment Act, a bill that emphasizes that a woman’s economic power has positive implications for both her family and her personal fulfillment. READ MORE...

  • Capping Off the Year With More Impartial Judges

    Capping Off the Year With More Impartial Judges

    Rumors swirl that the Senate, originally set to adjourn on Dec. 14, may pack it up a week earlier. Since Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., said after the election that confirming judges would be his “top priority” for the rest of the 115th Congress, let’s take stock.

    We are in the longest period of triple-digit judicial vacancies since the early 1990s, when Congress created 85 new judicial positions. More than half of the current vacancies are designated “judicial emergencies” because the positions have been open so long that they’re worsening judicial caseloads. READ MORE...

    Sore Loser: Stacey Abrams Ends Challenges Georgia Gubernatorial Race – Won’t Concede – Set To File Lawsuit

    Defeated Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams finally ended her challenges on Friday and ended her challenges against Republican opponent Brian Kemp.  However, in the same breath that she ended the challenges, she also declared she would be filing a federal lawsuit over what she called “gross mismanagement” of elections.

    If you ask me, all she’s looking for here will only hurt herself and her own party.  This woman wouldn’t even concede!  Talk about a poor sport, but Democrats are often like that in these races. READ MORE...

  • Why Supreme Court Opinions Are Not The “Law Of The Land” & How To Put Federal Judges In Their Place

    Why Supreme Court Opinions Are Not The “Law Of The Land” & How To Put Federal Judges In Their Place

    Central to the silly arguments made by the “Convention of States Project” (COSP) is their claim that 200 years of Supreme Court opinions have increased the powers of the federal government (as well as legalized practices such as abortion); that all these opinions are “the Law of the Land”; and we need an Article V convention so we can get amendments to the Constitution which take away all these powers the Supreme Court gave the federal government.

    But the text of Article V contradicts COSP’s claim.  Article V shows that our Constitution can be amended only when three fourths of the States ratify proposed amendments. The Supreme Court has no power to amend our Constitution.  And it’s impossible for an amendment to take away powers our Constitution doesn’t grant. READ MORE...

    Wikileaks Claims DOJ Charging Julian Assange – DOJ Confirms

    OK, during the reign of the usurper-in-chief, Barack Hussein Obama Soetoro Sobarkah, conservatives and then-candidate Donald Trump, were thrilled that Wikileaks founder Julian Assange was revealing the criminal actions of the US government against its own people.  My, how things have changed since Donald Trump became president.  Wikileaks tweeted out that a document dump containing information on Julian Assange also revealed with charges or drafts of charges against the Wikileaks founder, and the Justice Department quickly confirmed that the US was charging him.

    Gov. Cuomo’s Shameless War on the NRA

    Recently released documents from a lawsuit involving the Obama administration’s Operation Choke Point are casting more light on federal financial regulators’ unlawful shakedown of disfavored businesses and their financial institutions.

    The documents also show how tempting and easy it could be for state bureaucrats to launch similar operations, so long as their legislatures empower them with broad regulatory authority.

    Now, just such a scheme is coming to light in New York, where the National Rifle Association has sued Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo and the state Department of Financial Services for allegedly threatening banks and insurers into severing business ties with the association. READ MORE...
