    Internet Sales Tax Aims To Hurt Small Businesses & Make Online Shopping More Expensive

    I’m seriously questioning why we give Congress any power at all to tax us.  Our forefathers engaged in a War for Independence in which one of the issues they were complaining about was a 2-3% tax!  Yet, here we are today getting everything under our noses taxed, and now states are looking at taxing internet sales across state lines.

    All that will do is kill pretty much the only thing that is keeping the economy moving and make it cost more to consumers.

    Center for Technology and Innovation Associate Director Jessica Melugin, speaking on behalf of the Competitive Enterprise Institute, points out just how damaging this will be to small businesses, and in the end, it will be the consumer who loses. READ MORE...

  • Census Bureau Has Been Co-Opted by Leftist Ideologues

    Census Bureau Has Been Co-Opted by Leftist Ideologues

    “Are you an American or not?”

    It’s a simple question, one that every U.S. census should include, especially when the survey already contains nonsensical and intrusive inquiries into one’s ethnic DNA composition and whether one co-habits with someone of the opposite sex or one’s own.

    Whether you are a citizen or not is a valid question in a civic-minded constitutional democracy. Whether your parents are ethnic Chinese born in Peru or you are a nonpracticing heterosexual, not so much.

    And yet, the inclusion of a citizenship question and other changes rightly being made by the Trump administration to the 2020 census caused a lamentably predictable furor on Thursday, at the first day of the spring 2018 meeting of the Census Bureau’s National Advisory Committee on Racial, Ethnic, and Other Populations.

    Nikki Haley Blasts UN for Anti-Israel Vote – Spearheads Unheard Of Change in Voting for Israel

    U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley has once again stood strong and tall for Israel before the global body.

    Haley blasted several of its members for ignoring the terror acts of Hamas in Gaza.

    And then made clear that the U.N. resolution condemning Israel for “excessive use of force” was nothing but a farce, and the United States would have no part of it.

    Haley has emerged as a true friend of Israel in recent times. She’s gone above and beyond the diplomatic role of her post to make sure the world understands: This is not the Muslim apologist White House of Barack Obama days. READ MORE...

  • Meghan McCain Takes On Behar's Ridiculous 'Nazi Germany' Comparison

    Meghan McCain Takes On Behar’s Ridiculous ‘Nazi Germany’ Comparison

    Once again, Meghan McCain was the lone voice of reason on “The View” this week, this time as the ladies were discussing immigration. She is one courageous woman to hold the only point of rationality in a room full of agitated ignorance. To breakout applause, Joy Behar, Sunny Hostin, and Whoopi Goldberg were opining on the Trump administration’s policy of separating children and families at the border in order to discourage illegal immigration and groundless claims for asylum.

    Behar called the policy of separating children from their parents “vicious” and likened it to Nazi Germany, although it is completely within the bounds of asylum law in this country. When a family requests asylum at a port of entry, they must demonstrate a “credible fear” of harm if they return to their home country. Many do. But Border Patrol officers say migrants are being coached to use “magic words”  so they will fall within the statute of credible fear. READ MORE...
