There are two primary types of electronic surveillance – Title III and FISA.Continue Reading
The signing starts a 15-day countdown before a 25% tariff on imported steel and a 10% tariff on imported aluminum goes into effect.
The Executive Order included a clause granting Canada and Mexico a roughly 30-day grace period to avoid being impacted – but only while NAFTA talks continue.Continue Reading
The Conservative Treehouse pointed out an unexpectedly televised roundtable with Members of Congress and President Trump’s Cabinet regarding our nation’s Trade Policies.
What transpired was nothing short of astonishing:
Yesterday President Trump invited the media to keep their cameras on during a round-table discussion on trade. He did this for a reason. President Trump wanted the American voters to watch Republican politicians demand that he stop trying to bring manufacturing jobs to the United States.
Which is exactly what the Republican Congressmen did.Continue Reading
We’ve witnessed the greatest creation of value the world has ever experienced.
$8 Trillion in value and counting.
It was always there – it was just waiting to be released. Government simply needed to get out of the way.Continue Reading
This post is the result of requests I’ve received from readers to compile articles by category along with a description of each article.
This should prove helpful to those wanting to look into the unfolding FBI/DOJ/Obama Administration scandal surrounding illegal surveillance and collusion.Continue Reading
Back in March, I wrote about the Department of Justice’s Slush Fund.
The Working Group was created within the Justice Department by Eric Holder in 2012 as a means of prosecution and punishment for those perceived to be responsible for the financial crisis of 2008.
At its formation Mr. Holder made the following statement:
Over the past three years, we have been aggressively investigating the causes of the financial crisis. And we have learned that much of the conduct that led to the crisis was unethical, and, in many instances, extremely reckless. We also have learned that behavior that is unethical or reckless may not necessarily be criminal. When we find evidence of criminal wrongdoing, we bring criminal prosecutions. When we don’t, we endeavor to use other tools available to us.Continue Reading
A new study was published in the journal Nature Geoscience. It has been causing a bit of a stir – along with some real consternation – amongst the Climate Change crowd.
All the more so since the study was done by a group of well-known scientists who are not Global Warming Skeptics. Indeed, they have all been firmly entrenched within the Anthropogenic (man-made) Global Warming camp.
These are the actual scientists who have been responsible for determining and producing the United Nations’ Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC)’s Carbon Budget.
And they are finally admitting they were wrong…Continue Reading
On Sunday, President Trump sent a letter to Congress detailing his Immigration Principles and Policies.
For any who were concerned that President Trump might have aligned himself with Schumer, Pelosi and the Democrats on Immigration, that fear should be completely removed.
I had earlier said as much in DACA Hysteria & Trump’s Negotiating Leverage.
Now you no longer need to believe me. You can see for yourself.
The Principles are quite detailed and should satisfy most Immigration Hawks.Continue Reading
The United States’ 39% marginal corporate tax rate (35% federal and 4% average state and local) is the third highest in the world. It is the highest of the 34 industrialized nation members of the OECD – and it compares poorly with Europe’s average tax rate of 24%.
Because of loopholes, deductions, loss carry-forwards, etc., few, if any, companies pay the full 39% rate. Nevertheless, our statutory rate is higher than almost anywhere in the world.
President Trump has proposed lowering the Corporate Tax Rate from 35% to 20%. That’s a good idea – but it doesn’t go far enough. The Corporate Tax Rate should really be lowered to zero.
If this sounds a bit off, stay with me – I promise it will make more sense.Continue Reading
