    Sanders Says ‘Thousands’ to Die as Budget Chief Predicts Medicare Boost


    President Donald Trump’s budget proposal would extend the life of Medicare by eight years, the administration’s budget chief told a Senate committee Wednesday.

    But Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., had a sharp question during the Senate Budget Committee hearing.

    “How many thousands do you think will die because of massive cuts to Medicare and Medicaid?” Sanders asked Russ Vought, acting director of the Office of Management and Budget.

    Several Democrats on the panel also accused the Trump administration of wanting to cut Medicare. READ MORE...

  • AFL-CIO Tears Apart Green New Deal

    AFL-CIO Tears Apart Green New Deal

    The largest organization of labor unions in the U.S. slammed the Green New Deal for combating climate change by threatening the livelihoods of millions of Americans.

    The AFL-CIO sent a letter on Friday to Democratic New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Ed Markey, the two lawmakers leading the Green New Deal push in Congress. The labor group demanded a larger role in crafting future solutions, slamming the current proposal as “not achievable or realistic.”

    “We welcome the call for labor rights and dialogue with labor, but the Green New Deal resolution is far too short on specific solutions that speak to the jobs of our members and the critical sections of our economy,” the letter, signed by 10 national labor unions on the AFL-CIO’s energy committee, says.

  • The Final Countdown In The Push For Birth To Grave "Education"

    The Final Countdown In The Push For Birth To Grave “Education”

    Anti Fed Ed Warriors, you’ve heard me say for a long time that the LAST chain in the birth to grave education alignment is the HEA (Higher Education Act) as it is re-authorized. Since ESSA (Every Student Succeeds Act) embedded the HEA (along with WIOA, Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act) within its 391 final law version, we learned the goal all along is what you see below:

    So, Warriors, the million dollar question is, what will the new version of HEA’s goal be?

    We know the “every” in ESSA means ALL children in PreK-12th grade (no matter what choice) to be aligned to post-secondary ‘readiness’ standards. Those ‘standards’ aren’t educational ones, but those workforce standards created and credentialed BY industries found in WIOA(Which is WHY both WIOA and HEA were tied to ESSA’s mandates) READ MORE...

  • Trump Budget Seeks More Border Wall Funding, Work Rules for Welfare

    Trump Budget Seeks More Border Wall Funding, Work Rules for Welfare


    President Donald Trump’s fiscal 2020 budget proposal would eliminate the federal deficit in 15 years, add new work requirements for welfare recipients, and fund additional construction of a border wall.

    The reaction to the spending blueprint by Democrats was predictably negative.

    The $4.7 trillion proposal, which projects a $1.1 trillion deficit, also asks Congress to cut discretionary spending, something it hasn’t done in recent years, even when under Republican control.

    “You mention mandatory spending. It is a driver. We have more reforms than any other president’s budget in history, but, look, what has happened for far too long is that Congress has blamed mandatory spending and then increased discretionary spending, which they have a vote on every single year by large degrees,” Office of Management and Budget acting Director Russ Vought told The Daily Signal on Monday.   READ MORE...

  • How Michael Jackson Became the Thriller Monster

    How Michael Jackson Became the Thriller Monster

    It’s been said there’s no real dignity in death. And despite his legendary career, dignity was certainly in short supply the day Michael Jackson died from a Propofol-induced “nap” at his $100,000-a-month Bel Air palace nearly a decade ago. Certainly the horrific revelations of the new HBO documentary Leaving Neverland should settle any question over whether “in” should be placed before “famous” when describing the King of Pop.

    Personally, I have always, and with sadness, felt that Jackson was guilty, from the time the first allegations surfaced in the early 2000s. I have also believed his guilt was by reason of insanity and diminished capacity. Jackson was not some kind of Freddy Krueger-like monster who got off on overcoming and hurting helpless creatures. Clearly, all of his creative ambition in those later years was aimed at trying to recreate a childhood he never had, to un-ring the cynical, sexualized, tarnished bell of adulthood, to fly off and become Peter Pan. There was something broken and unformed about him. READ MORE...

  • Half of Young Americans Want to Live in a Socialist Country

    Half of Young Americans Want to Live in a Socialist Country


    Half of young Americans would rather live in a socialist country, according to a new poll.

    The Harris Poll found that 49.6 percent of millennials prefer living in a socialist country.

    Pew Research Center defines millennials as those born between 1981 and 1996, ages 23 to 38 in 2019, and Gen Z, those born between 1997 and 2012.  

    Mike Gonzalez, a senior fellow at The Heritage Foundation’s Center for Foreign Policy, told The Daily Signal in an email that the trend toward socialism is due to politically biased education. READ MORE...

  • Muslim Rep. Ilhan Omar on Trump & Obama: "One Is Human, The Other Is Not"

    Muslim Rep. Ilhan Omar on Trump & Obama: “One Is Human, The Other Is Not”

    While there are plenty of emails I get in my inbox stating that people are happy to see someone finally calling out the Israeli lobbyists, and I don’t mind that, I have a greater concern about Rep. Ilhan Omar’s (D-MN) agenda, underlying ideology and criminal history in why she is engaging in what she is.  She is clearly anti-American and basically states that she is not here to assimilate but rather we are to accommodate her and Somalis like her.  Still, in a recent comment, Omar claimed the usurper, Barack Hussein Obama Soetoro Sobarkah, is somehow “human,” while President Donald Trump is not.

  • Feds to Unseal Epstein Documents Revealing Scope of Billionaire’s International Child Sex Trafficking Ring

    Feds to Unseal Epstein Documents Revealing Scope of Billionaire’s International Child Sex Trafficking Ring

    On Monday, a Manhattan appeals court gave billionaire pedophile Jeffrey Epstein’s former alleged partner in crime, British socialite Ghislaine Maxwell, until March 19 to establish good cause as to why documents detailing the scope and size of their international child sex trafficking operation should remain sealed. Failing to do so would mean these documents will be made public.

    “We’re grateful that the court ruled the summary judgment papers are open and they are moving to expedite having them unsealed,’’ said Sanford Bohrer, the attorney representing the Miami Herald. “This is very unusual for a court to do this.” READ MORE...

  • Peace Cross Ruling Could Be a Decisive Moment for Religious Toleration

    Peace Cross Ruling Could Be a Decisive Moment for Religious Toleration

    The Supreme Court is currently deliberating over what is arguably the biggest case of the term.

    The court heard oral argument on Feb. 27 in The American Legion v. American Humanist Association, a dispute over the constitutionality of a World War I veterans’ memorial. The pending outcome could make it one of the most important First Amendment cases in a generation.

    The legal dispute involves the Bladensburg World War I Veterans Memorial, also known as the Peace Cross. In 1925, Gold Star Mothers and The American Legion erected the memorial to honor the 49 men from Prince George’s County, Maryland, who fought and died in World War I. READ MORE...

  • Mike Pompeo Tells Embassy in Venezuela to Come Home

    Mike Pompeo Tells Embassy in Venezuela to Come Home

    Secretary of State Mike Pompeo announced Monday he is pulling remaining U.S. Embassy staffers from Venezuela because of the country’s worsening situation.

    “The U.S. will withdraw all remaining personnel from [the Caracas embassy] this week,” Pompeo tweeted late Monday night. “This decision reflects the deteriorating situation in [Venezuela] as well as the conclusion that the presence of U.S. diplomatic staff at the embassy has become a constraint on U.S. policy.”

    The announcement comes as Venezuela continues to descend into chaos. Its government is currently attempting to restore electricity after four days of blackouts around the country, the latest in what has become a humanitarian crisis for the socialist country led by Nicolas Maduro. READ MORE...
