• Latest Economic Numbers Show Impact Of Trump Policies

    Latest Economic Numbers Show Impact Of Trump Policies

    Yesterday, I reported that the Trump economic boom which has been humming along for over a year now, was actually picking up steam thanks to the recent passage of the largest tax cut in American history.

    We learned that the Dow Jones was breaking records, that the nation was hiring new jobs out at amazing speed, and that the unemployment rate was continuing to fall.

    Today, more specific economic news is providing even more evidence of how GOP policies really do benefit everyone.

    For years, minority groups have voted (particularly African-Americans) have voted more for Democrats than they have for Republicans. This truth is odd considering that minority groups are more prosperous under Republican leadership than they are under Democrats. For example, African-Americans had lower unemployment during the George W. Bush era than they did during the Obama era. (You can see the pertinent data here, and here.) READ MORE...

  • Clinton Foundation Investigated for ‘Pay to Play’

    Clinton Foundation Investigated for ‘Pay to Play’

    Long, long overdue.

    For years, the Clinton Foundation was the repository for cash payments in exchange for political favors and more.

    Russia sent millions to the Clinton Foundation – the irony is the Mueller is looking into bogus Russia collusion charges.

    

    Among other things:

    • the mysterious multimillion-dollar Foundation gift from an obscure Indian politician that coincided with Senator Clinton’s reversal on the nuclear non-proliferation treaty;
    • how Secretary of State Clinton was involved in allowing the transfer of nearly 50 percent of US domestic uranium output to the Russian government, benefiting large donors to the Clinton Foundation;
    • how multimillion-dollar contracts for Haiti disaster relief were awarded to donors and friends of Hillary and Bill;
    • how Bill received large payments for speeches from foreign businesses and governments with matters pending before the State Department;
    • how the Clintons’ joint visit to Colombia was followed by the grant of lucrative logging rights to a Canadian billionaire, a top Clinton Foundation donor;
    • how Bill received $2 million for speeches from the largest shareholder in the Keystone Pipeline project, even as Hillary played a role in approving it.
    Hillary obstructed Boko Haram’s terror designation as her donors cashed in.

    JUSTICE DEPARTMENT INVESTIGATING CLINTON FOUNDATION OVER ‘PAY TO PLAY’ ALLEGATIONS

     

    FOX News, January 4, 2018:

     

    The Justice Department has launched a new investigation into allegations the Clinton Foundation used “pay to play” politics while Hillary Clinton was U.S. secretary of state, Fox News has confirmed. READ MORE...

  • Tax Cuts, the GOP Establishment, the Job Outlook, and the Trump Economy

    Tax Cuts, the GOP Establishment, the Job Outlook, and the Trump Economy

    Editor’s note: Here’s another smorgasbord of emails from The Daily Signal’s audience, reflecting your thoughts on tax cuts and other matters as 2017 came to a close. Enjoy, and don’t forget to write us at letters@dailysignal.com.Ken McIntyre

    Dear Daily Signal: The historic tax reform legislation draws a clear distinction between the governing matrixes guiding the two political parties in Congress (“Taxpayers Could See Benefits of GOP Tax Reform Bill as Early as February“).

    Simply stated, the Democrats govern by onerous taxation (their “affordable” health care act), stressing that only the “state” can adequately spend the citizen’s money. The Republicans govern by free market license, stressing that the state has no business in the citizen’s pocketbook; the way citizens spend their money is their decision, and the consequences are to be borne by them.

  • Iranian Resistance Urges UN To Recognize “Legitimate Right Of People Of Iran To Overthrow Ruling Religious Fascism”

    Iranian Resistance Urges UN To Recognize “Legitimate Right Of People Of Iran To Overthrow Ruling Religious Fascism”

    This is extraordinary and world-historical.

    But they shouldn’t expect any satisfaction from the thoroughly compromised United Nations, a tool of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation.

    “Iranian resistance issues list of demands urging UN to take action,” Al Arabiya, January 5, 2018:

    The Iranian Resistance urged the UN Security Council to defend the legitimate and inalienable right of the Iranian people to overthrow the religious fascism ruling Iran and to attain the freedom for which they have been demonstrating, in a statement issued Friday. READ MORE...

  • If The Current Paper Civil War Against Trump Fails, It May Move From Bullet Points To Real Bullets

    If The Current Paper Civil War Against Trump Fails, It May Move From Bullet Points To Real Bullets

    The original civil war was fought by farmhands and factory workers, freed slaves and young boys turned soldiers; the new civil war is being fought by lawyers in blue or gray suits not with bullets, but with bullet points.

    From the Mueller investigation to Federal judges declaring that President Trump doesn’t have the right to control immigration policy or command the military, from political sabotage at the DOJ by Obama appointees like Sally Yates to Patagonia’s lawsuit over national monuments, the cold civil war set off by the left’s rejection of the 2016 election results has been a paper war largely waged by lawyers.

  • Trump Just Cut Aid to Pakistan. Why This Long-Overdue Move Could Have a Real Impact.

    Trump Cut Aid to Pakistan. Why This Long-Overdue Move Could Have a Real Impact.

    They say the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result. It’s a lesson the U.S. government has learned the hard way in Pakistan.

    Fortunately, the Trump administration’s recent decision to suspend $255 million in aid to Islamabad serves as a welcome injection of sanity into the deeply dysfunctional U.S.-Pakistan relationship.

    “The United States has foolishly given Pakistan more than 33 billion dollars in aid over the last 15 years, and they have given us nothing but lies and deceit, thinking of our leaders as fools,” President Donald Trump declared in a Jan. 1 tweet. “They give safe haven to the terrorists we hunt in Afghanistan, with little help. No more!” READ MORE...

  • Facebook Removes “Warriors for Christ” Page Again - Offers No Right Of Appeal

    Facebook Removes “Warriors for Christ” Page Again – Offers No Right Of Appeal

    On January 1, the Geller Report brought you the news that Facebook had shut down the “Warriors for Christ” in its ongoing effort to choke off and silence all voices that dissent from the leftist line.

    The Warriors for Christ page was subsequently reinstated. After that, they had done little more than post the Geller Report link and other links to stories about how Facebook had shut them down — and Facebook blocked their page again. Evidently now writing about Facebook censorship is grounds for being censored on Facebook. READ MORE...
