 Trump Regulatory Cuts Saving Consumers Billions, 
 Tax Cuts Next 
A new study released on Tuesday shows that Donald Trump's aggressive rollback of federal regulations will save businesses nearly $4 billion per year — which means he's saving you, the consumer, $4 billion. Regulations are a massive hidden tax on the American people because businesses pass on those expenses in the price of goods and services. The good news is that we're only eight months into Trump's presidency. Trump campaigned on cutting 70% of Washington's regulatory state, and he is on pace to keep that commitment. Dan Goldbeck, an analyst at the American Action Forum, said, "Both the volume and impact of new regulatory burdens have slowed dramatically. Beyond these first six months, the administration's ambition is clearly to go even farther and deeper."
          The impact of Trump's regulation-cutting crusade has been most clearly evidenced by the positive growth of the U.S. economy. Since January businesses have added more than one million new jobs and the stock market has witnessed a dramatic rise. Americans' favorable view on the state of the economy has risen to 69%. Juanita Duggan, president of the National Federation of Independent Business, stated, "Strong consumer demand is boosting small business optimism. Small business owners are feeling better about the economy because their customers are feeling better about the economy."
          Trump's aggressive regulatory cuts have also encouraged Republican lawmakers to get in on the act as well. Congress has used the Congressional Review Act to overturn 14 significant liar-nObama-era regulations. This law was seldom used prior to Trump's inauguration, but it's starting to get a badly needed workout.
          Trump deserves credit for calling out Washington on its regulation addiction and for sticking with his plans to drain the swamp. Americans can now enjoy watching the economy continue to grow as more regulations and taxes are cut. The result will be more economic opportunity for more Americans as well as more money in the pockets of Americans. It's simple economics.  ~The Patriot Post

Trump OUTREACH To Mueller
Shorter Leash, DEAL MADE Or Being PLAYED?
{rickwells.us} ~ Could it be that a deal has been worked out behind the scenes to call off Mueller and his swamp dogs or to keep them on a shorter, more appropriate leash?... If so, to whose benefit and at what price? Were President Trump’s attorneys given assurances that the overstepping of his authority by Mueller is going to stop, perhaps under the threat of legal action? There seems to be almost a spirit of cooperation, a comfort level that Mueller may have been restrained, on the part of his intended victims. Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein slithered out of hiding to answer questions for Chris Wallace on Fox News Sunday this weekend. Wallace asked whether there were any red lines that Mueller could not cross. Rosenstein said he and Mueller both understand the specific scope of the investigation, stating twice that it is not a fishing exhibition...  http://rickwells.us/trump-outreach-mueller-shorter-leash-deal-made-...

What the Crisis Means:
North Korea, Nukes and Islamists
by Ryan Mauro
{clarionproject.org} ~ North Korea is officially a communist, Stalinist dictatorship, but that hasn’t stopped it from crossing the ideological divide to embrace Islamist regimes and, reportedly, even jihadist groups... The latest crisis between North Korea and the U.S. appears separate from the war with Islamism, but there are 10 ways it overlaps. The U.S. and allied intelligence services now believe North Korea has miniaturized its nuclear warheads to fit onto its intercontinental ballistic missiles and has the potentially up to 60 nuclear weapons. This was seen as an undeclared “red line” and prompted President Trump to threaten to bring “fire and fury like the world has never seen” if North Korea’s verbal threats continue; a benchmark North Korea immediately crossed by announcing it was considering a nuclear strike on the U.S. territory of Guam, where 6,000 U.S. troops are stationed. Another 28,000 U.S. troops are in South Korea and 49,000 in Japan...  https://clarionproject.org/10-ways-north-korea-impacts-jihad-threat/

Top liar-nObama Official Caught Trolling
and Unmasking for Purely Political Reasons
{patrioticviralnews.com} ~ Remember liar-nObama aide and former Deputy National Security Advisor Ben Rhodes? The former president’s young speechwriter and policy-crafter, who devised much of the disastrous Iranian nuclear deal despite having no formal foreign relations education... may have been responsible or knows who is responsible for the “unmasking” of Americans’ names in a quest to inflict political damage on the Trump campaign last year. Both Rhodes’ and former National Security Advisor Susan Rice’s names have surfaced as prime candidates for people who ordered this unmasking the revealing of citizens’ names whose conversations or other records were recorded by the National Security Agency for political purposes to benefit the Democrats in the election of 2016. Under liar-nObama-era programs, much archiving of American emails, phone conversations, text messages and Internet chats was done in the name of “keeping our country safe” from terrorism and other defense threats under the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) and other spy programs...  http://patrioticviralnews.com/articles/top-obama-official-caught-tr...

US Spy Satellites Just
Caught NK Arming Anti-Ship Superweapon
by Benjamin Arie
{conservativetribune.com} ~ The rogue country of North Korea is continuing to rattle the saber in the face of Western nations — and the regime was just caught preparing for a possible strike against the U.S. Navy... American spy satellites have reportedly spotted the North Korean military loading anti-ship cruise missiles onto a patrol boat. U.S. officials stated that Stormpetrel naval missiles have not been placed on a similar craft since 2014. The move could be a signal that North Korea is stepping up its military posturing, and is ignoring diplomatic pressure from the United States and other countries...  http://conservativetribune.com/north-korea-anti-navy-weapon/?utm_so...

Social Engineering By Census
by Tom McLaughlin
{tommclaughlin.blogspot.com} ~ Does racial discrimination still exist in the United States? If so, how does it show? One manifestation, perhaps the biggest, is in the US Government. As it prepares to fulfill its constitutional responsibility under Article I, Section 2 to count how many people live here, let’s ponder what the Census has become. Its original purpose was to figure out how many seats in the US House of Representatives each state gets as our population grows and shifts, but America’s obsession with race has expanded the function of this basic count. Right now, there’s a political struggle to add even more racial categories to the 2020 census. Why? Well, the Census Bureau itself brags that the data it collects determines how and where $400 billion of federal money is spent, much of it according to race.
Article I Section 2 originally mandated that Congress count: “the whole Number of free Persons, including those bound to Service for a Term of Years, and excluding Indians not taxed, three fifths of all other Persons… within every subsequent Term of ten Years, in such Manner as they shall by Law direct.”
Linda Sarsour
The “Manner” Congress has subsequently directed leads us to look at ourselves not as Americans, but as members of some oppressed minority competing for taxpayer funds. Left-wing activist Linda Sarsour is lobbying the Office of Management and Budget to include another racial category President liar-nObama wanted: “MENA” for “Middle East and North Africa.” Sarsour calls herself a Palestinian American. She wants Persians, Arabs, Turks, Lebanese, and Somalis and Sudanese to be categorized under that label too. Why? She explains:
“When we look at accessing federal, you know, any types of federal support, for example, we lose out dramatically because we don’t have a separated category … because we are quote ‘white,’ we are not seen as a priority area for city or state or federal funding.”
At least she’s honest about it. According to the Heritage Foundation, Sarsour wants: “Another ‘oppressed’ group that will be eligible for racial preferences (‘affirmative action,’ ‘disparate impact,’ ‘underrepresentation,’ etc.) in employment, college admissions, federal contracts, and congressional redistricting.” She wants a bigger slice of the $400 billion pie.
Under the first census conducted in 1790, the head of household was listed as well as number of “free white males” over and under sixteen, the number of “free white females,” the number of “free persons” (boarding in household) and the number of slaves. That was all. No questions about race, but we can assume the slaves were black. Ten years later more questions about the ages of both free white males and free white females were asked. Twenty years later, data on the number of factories in a given district were gathered. In 1820, the census takers asked the ages and sexes of slaves, as well as whether people worked as farmers, factory workers, or other commerce, and counted “foreigners not naturalized.” In 1830, more specific data on ages of white males and females, slaves, as well as the number of all who were deaf, dumb, or blind was determined.
In 1850 came the first questions on race. There were two broad categories: “Free Inhabitants” and “Slave Inhabitants,” but free non-white inhabitants were differentiated between “black” and “mulatto.” Also gathered were values of real estate owned, data on occupation, place of birth, marital status, schooling, literacy, and if person was "deaf, dumb, blind, insane, idiotic, pauper, or convict.” Slaves were given numbers, not names, and classified black or mulatto. Listed under “Owner” were “uncaught escaped slaves in the past year”; “the number of slaves freed from bondage in the past year” and, “is the slave deaf and dumb, blind, insane, or idiotic?”
More race questions came in 1870 with categories for Chinese and [American] Indian. In 1890: “Enumerators were instructed to write ‘White,’ ‘black,’ ‘Mulatto,’ ‘Quadroon,’ ‘Octoroon,’ ‘Chinese,’ ‘Japanese,’ or ‘Indian.’”
More questions about Indians came in 1900, including tribal affiliation, “Fraction of person's lineage that is white”; “Is this person living in polygamy?”; “Is this person taxed?” A note on the Census site explained: “An American Indian was considered "taxed" if he or she was detached from his or her tribe and was living in the White community and subject to general taxation.
“Mulatto” was dropped in 1930 and “Mexican” added, but only that year. “Hindu” was called a race. Mixed black and white was marked as Black. Mixed Indian and white was marked as “Indian.” Ethnic questions were increased in 1970, asking about Cuban, Puerto Rican, Mexican, Central American, or “Other Spanish” descent. Now those groups also want to be classified as a “race” separate from white in 2020. If you’re not white, you're eligible for a piece of the pie.
Whenever I’m asked to describe my race, I write in “human,” and refuse to go any further. How soon before government substitutes the subjective term “gender” for the scientific term “sex” and how many categories will there be? Five? Ten? Thirty? How long before questions about sexual preference are included? They were drafted under the liar-nObama Administration but dropped by the Trump Administration last March. Had liar-Hillary won, they’d have been on there for 2020.

ALERT ALERT

Schumer Refusing To Help Border Kids
Wants To Hurt Trump Instead

The controversy over how underage illegal aliens are handled at the border is heating up — but Democrat Senator Chuck Schumer just rejected a good-faith proposal to fix the problem.

A growing number of people on both sides of the political aisle have expressed concern for border separations, which occur when migrants are caught breaking the law along the border while they have children with them, or when the often exploitative relationship between adults and minors at the border cannot be established.

A vast amount of mis-information and outright lying about the situation has muddied the water, making it tough to understand the situation in its entirety.

Both liberals and conservatives, however, have voiced their support for a better system that results in fewer family separations, and even President Donald Trump has indicated that he is willing to stand with Congress if they change the law.

Shockingly, however, it looks like one of the most well-known faces of the Democratic party isn’t willing to take action, and is instead playing politics in order to attack Trump.

On Tuesday, Schumer openly rejected a Republican proposal to fix the immigrant separation problem at the legislative level, and instead whined about the president.

“There are so many obstacles to legislation and when the president can do it with his own pen, it makes no sense,” Schumer stated, according to The Hill.

“Legislation is not the way to go here when it’s so easy for the president to sign it,” he complained.

Democrats Reject Bill To Keep Families Together At Border – Schumer Says He “Wants To Keep Focus On Trump”

Think about that for a second: The president’s job is to execute existing laws. The legislature’s job is to change or enact new laws when needed.

A senator elected to the legislature for exactly that purpose is now refusing to do his job and pass legislation, while simultaneously blaming the president for enforcing the existing laws, as he is sworn to do.

If there was any doubt that Schumer and the Democrats are playing politics instead of trying to actually help migrant families, the senator made his intentions clear: Obstruct and point fingers at Trump.

“Asked if that meant Democrats would not support a bill backed by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) to keep immigrant families together while seeking asylum on the U.S. border, Schumer said they want to keep the focus on Trump,” The Hill explained.

Make no mistake: The Democrats dragging their feet and refusing to back legislation already drafted by Republicans will prolong the problems at the border.

“Schumer’s opposition to a legislative fix means there likely won’t be a quick end to the emotional images of immigrant children being separated from their families unless Trump backs down,” The Hill reported.

“Democrats want to keep the pressure on Trump instead of having Congress assume responsibility for the growing crisis,” the news outlet continued.

Again: There’s a solution ready to go, with Republicans including Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell ready to support it. Yet Democrats like Schumer apparently believe that scoring political points against Trump is more important than helping broken families on the border, even as their own liberal voters demand action.

“Congress alone can fix it,” stated Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen on Monday.

“I support, and all of the senators of the Republican conference support, a plan that keeps families together,” McConnell agreed.

“We need to fix the problem and it requires a legislative solution,” he said.

Yet Democrats refuse to budge.

This “do nothing but blame Trump” response from the left should prove beyond a doubt that all the tears and hand-wringing from liberals are disingenuous. They’re for show. If it was truly about helping innocent kids at the border, Schumer and his fellow Democrats could act right now.

If their priority was actually to solve the problem and help broken families, scoring points against Trump shouldn’t even be a concern. Even if they believed he was being stubborn on the issue, they could take the high road by doing their jobs and supporting bipartisan legislation.

They don’t, because solving the problem was never their goal. They are playing political games and using devastated children as pawns, while pretending that the president is the monster.

That’s sick… and the American people need to see exactly who is doing the obstruction.

SLAVEHOLDER??

Washington Post Compares
Jeff Sessions To Slaveholder’

The Washington Post compared Attorney General Jeff Sessions to “slaveholders” after he quoted the Bible on Thursday while discussing his department’s policy of prosecuting all illegal immigrants who cross the border.

Sessions made the statement during a speech to law enforcement officers in Fort Wayne, Indiana.

WaPo ran a story entitled “Sessions cites Bible passage used to defend slavery in defense of separating immigrant families” by general assignment editor Keith McMillan and religion reporter Julie Zauzmer on Friday.

Rather than detailing the statistics Sessions cited in the speech that explain the immigration policy, the story quoted John Fea, a history professor at Messiah College in Pennsylvania.

“This is the same argument that Southern slaveholders and the advocates of a Southern way of life made,” Fea said.

Sessions spent much of the speech discussing the numbers behind current immigration policy, including separating families at the Southwest border.

“I would cite you to the Apostle Paul and his clear and wise command in Romans 13, to obey the laws of the government because God has ordained the government for his purposes,” Sessions said.

“Orderly and lawful processes are good in themselves. Consistent and fair application of the law is in itself a good and moral thing, and that protects the weak and protects the lawful.”

“The previous administration wouldn’t prosecute aliens if they came with children,” Sessions said.

“It was de-facto open borders if you came with children. The results were unsurprising. More and more illegal aliens started showing up at the border with children.”

Sessions laid out the numbers in the speech.

“In 2013, fewer than 15,000 family units were apprehended crossing our border illegally between ports of entry in dangerous areas of the country,” he said.

“Five years later, it was more than 75,000, a five-fold increase in five years. It didn’t even have to be their child that was brought, it could be anyone. You can imagine that this created a lot of danger.”

The U.S. has the “opportunity” to fix its broken immigration system now, Sessions said.

“I believe that’s it’s moral, right, just and decent that we have a lawful system of immigration,” he said. “The American people have been asking for it.”
