    New Jersey’s Federalism Wager Pays Off Big

    Our Founding Fathers wisely recognized that, to safeguard individual liberty, power must be divided up between different branches and levels of government.

    To preserve that system, courts must block any effort to upend that division, whether it be an imperious president seeking to force Congress to pass particular legislation, or a Congress similarly dictating to the states.

    The Supreme Court reiterated that simple and fairly obvious principle in an opinion Monday, striking down a federal statute that forbade states from amending their own sports gambling laws. READ MORE...

    Rep. Devin Nunes Says Trump Campaign Might Have Been Set Up, Predicts Embarrassing Outcome for FBI, Justice Department

    House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes of California said the Trump campaign might have been set up by the federal government back in 2016.

    “Let’s talk about how did this get started? You had Fusion GPS that was hired by the Democratic Party and the Clinton campaign to draw up a dossier on the president—or as the president was running for president,” Nunes said Tuesday on “Fox & Friends.” “What happened with that is that in [Glenn Simpson’s] testimony he mentioned that there was a source within the campaign.” READ MORE...

    This Professor May Hold The Key To When FBI Began Surveilling Trump

    What if Donald Trump is wrong? What if the Russia collusion investigation isn’t a witch hunt? What if it was a set-up—from the get-go?

    That’s one—maybe the most—logical conclusion to reach after gathering the crumbs dropped over the previous two years in light of the Washington Post’s story last week confirming the existence of a “top-secret intelligence source” involved in the 2016 presidential election.

    When the Washington Post ran its Wednesday story on the subpoena House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes issued for information related to that intelligence source, it risked exposing the source’s identity. In an article for the Wall Street Journal, Kimberley Strassel highlighted the consequences of reporting on the leak: READ MORE...

    7 Things Trump Did That Media Insists Are ‘Distractions’ From Russiagate

    President Trump has redefined the news cycle. Breaking news occurs so often from this administration that events that took place a week ago feel like an eternity past. However, the mainstream media managed to see through Trump’s corrupt agenda and declared that much of the breaking news is meant to distract the American people from the things that matter most, like Robert Mueller and Stormy Daniels.

    So don’t be fooled by the Trump administration’s evil, manipulative plan to divert attention from the country’s most pressing issues, like whether Michael Cohen violated campaign finance laws. Below is a list of several distractions Trump and his minions have concocted, uncovered by the incredibly astute members of the mainstream media. READ MORE...

  • Ireland Lowered Its Corporate Tax Rate. Here's What Happened.

    Ireland Lowered Its Corporate Tax Rate. Here’s What Happened.

    Many U.S.-based multinationals are finding luck with Ireland’s low corporate tax rate—and that 12.5 percent rate has been a pot of gold for the Irish economy as well.

    “Tax competitiveness has brought our country the only prosperity we’ve known,” @U2 says.

    In 2015, the Irish economy was estimated to have grown by 26.3 percent through foreign companies opening operations and providing high-paying jobs, including about 700 U.S. companies currently operating in the country.

    The Irish corporate tax rate is about half the average for other countries in the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development, which comprises 34 developed nations. READ MORE...

    Government Relies on Flawed Data to Determine Endangered Species

    Americans who live in or near a community built around a lake should be careful about stepping outside to mow the lawn if the temperature isn’t just right and the grass isn’t a certain height.

    They should keep pets indoors. They should forget about using weed killer. And they should be prepared to pony up a steep homeowners association fee.

    That’s because there may be snakes in the area protected by the Endangered Species Act of 1973, which imposes stiff penalties and fines for violating its rules and restrictions. READ MORE...

    Nikki Haley Slams UN, Walks Out On Palestinian Representative

    ‘Those who suggest the violence has anything to do with the U.S. location of the embassy are sorely mistaken.’

    U.S. Ambassador Nikki Haley slammed the United Nations on Tuesday for pushing an investigation into the measures Israel took to secure its border during violent clashes with Hamas-backed insurgents earlier this week. After she concluded her speech, she walked out of the chamber when a Palestinian representative began to speak.

    For months, Palestinians have been protesting along the Gaza-Israeli border in objection to Israel’s 70 years in existence. Protestors have been reportedly burning tires in order to create a thick black cloud of smoke that obfuscates them and enables them to carry out acts of violence. Israel Defense Forces (IDF) say Hamas insurgents used the U.S.’s embassy relocation to Jerusalem as an excuse to storm the border and plant explosives. At least 58 Palestinians were killed yesterday, spurring the U.N. to propose investigating the IDF to determine if their actions violated international law — a proposal Haley slammed as preposterous.
