    Tax Reform Spurs a Doubling of This Texan’s Business

    Republican-passed tax reform has helped to more than double his supply company’s business, a Texas entrepreneur says.

    “The tax reform took our taxes from 34 percent down to 21 percent, so we had additional capital and we used that capital to reinvest in the business,” Jim Cramer said in a phone interview Thursday with The Daily Signal.

    Cramer is a co-owner of Amarillo-based Austin Hose, a supplier of hose, fittings, and accessories with six locations serving six states.

    He spoke with The Daily Signal four days before House Ways and Means Chairman Kevin Brady, R-Texas, introduced three bills to build on the success of the initial overhaul of the tax code. READ MORE...

    Brett Kavanaugh’s Opponents Aren’t Really Against Him. They’re Against the Constitution.

    One of the best statements of how the Framers saw the role of the federal government is found in Federalist Paper 45, written by James Madison, who is known as the “Father of the Constitution”:

    Strozk’s Texts: There Are ‘Grave Concerns’ About ‘Media Leaking’

    A GOP congressman is alleging that the text messages between Lisa Page and Peter Strozk are raising grave concerns about the new era of “media leaking.”  Representative Mark Meadows says that the texts between the two lovers discuss the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s “media leak strategy” to damage president Donald Trump.

    Strzok, who was a leading investigator in both the Hillary Clinton and Russia probes, was fired in August after the DOJ inspector general excoriated him for a slew of anti-Trump text messages he sent on his FBI-issued phone, including one in which he said “we’ll stop” Trump from becoming president READ MORE...

    Special Interests Are Getting Rich Off of Our Politics. Here’s How.

    The next time you feel the urge to join a major protest to condemn the elite, powerful forces who are supposedly making your lives worse, don’t bother. The event is most likely organized by elite, powerful forces who are getting rich off your activism while you don’t make a dime or a dime’s worth of difference.

    From Occupy Wall Street to the endless disruptions in the recent Supreme Court confirmation hearings, the increased polarization of America is on full display. The disagreements between Americans on key principles like the size and role of government are very real—but rather than seeking common ground, the special interests are exploiting this division at every turn.
