 Democrat-Controlled States Face Debt Crisis 
Longtime Democrat-controlled state governments are running out of other people's money. Three states in particular are in varying degrees of budgetary crisis. Illinois, Connecticut and New Jersey are swimming in debt and yet Democrats' only solution is to call for tax increases, not spending cuts. Illinois is especially bad, finding itself staring at a growing debt crisis owing primarily to the cost of public pensions. It recently passed a massive tax hike, though Republican Gov. Bruce Rauner vetoed the bill over its failure to deal with the root cause of the problem — the public employment system. But the state senate's Democrat majority overrode Rauner's veto, displaying once again that Democrats dance to the tune of big unions over and against the interests of citizens. Is it any wonder that Illinois has seen its population decrease by over 500,000 since 2010?
          Both Connecticut and New Jersey find themselves in similar predicaments. They're trying to find the funds to pay for ever-increasing public pensions and retirement health care costs without actually working to reform these programs that have precipitated the problem in the first place. And their solution is always increased taxes.
          By contrast, look at a longtime Republican-controlled state. Tennessee is a state where high taxes are essentially non-existent. With no regular income tax, the Volunteer State has become a magnet for businesses and Americans seeking greater freedom from oppression of government excess. The Brookings Institute ranks the state as number one in the nation for advanced industry job growth. The state government also finds itself on the opposite side of the debt crisis and sitting on a revenue surplus, as Tennessee's constitution requires lawmakers pass a balanced budget plan each year. As a right-to-work state, it has helped to prevent the development of political culture adhering to the demands of unions. When individual freedom is prized over collectivist sympathies, the result is a government with fiscal restraints rather than unchecked excesses.  ~The Patriot Post
Trump Supporters Roast
Maxine Waters at Town Hall Event
by Ben Marquis
{} ~ Liberal Democrat California Rep. Maxine Waters has become one of the more loud and outspoken opponents of President Donald Trump... repeatedly insistent upon beginning impeachment proceedings against him while failing to provide any sort of legitimate reason why. But all is not entirely well in Waters’ world, as she was confronted by numerous equally loud and outspoken protesters outside of a town hall event she held in Gardena, California, in June, according to the Los Angeles Times. The crowd of protesters made up of men and women of all races were forced to remain outside while Waters spoke with mostly supportive constituents inside the venue, but they didn’t let that stop them from haranguing the congresswoman with chants alternating between “Let us in!” and “Kick her out!”...
Trump Needs Zero Tolerance For
Insubordination – Start With Voter Fraud Probe
by Rick Wells
{} ~ It makes no sense that President Trump is allowing the deep state to obstruct his initiatives, agenda and policies through what is outright insubordination and defiance... The solution is simple. It starts with identifying a directive that has not been implemented and then going to the person in charge or calling them into the White House and demanding that it happen immediately. Consistent and constant follow up is then initiated with immediately consequences for defiance or failure. The process is then repeated in agency after agency until his agenda is moving. It might take a while but once the word gets out that those who fail to do as they’re told can expect a visit and some unpleasant consequences, the number of dissidents will begin to fall off rapidly. As things are now, there are no consequences for insubordination, there’s barely any acknowledgment of it. There are many examples but one that is both striking and emblematic is the current resistance by the US Citizenship and Immigration Services to efforts by the Commission on Election Integrity to obtain the identifications of noncitizens living as permanent residents with green cards...
Carlson – Waters Bought A $4.3 Million
Mansion In Segregated Neighborhood, HOW?
by Rick Wells
{} ~ Bigmouth Bully Maxine Waters (D-CA) has made what are the modern day interpretation of threats against HUD Secretary Ben Carson. Tucker Carlson points to her recent statement by the old, mean, hag the she was going... to “Take his ass apart” when he came before her committee for appropriations. In her Saturday speech in New Orleans, Waters also berated Secretary Carson, stating he “knows nothing about the mission of HUD” and “doesn’t care about people in public housing.” Carlson quotes Waters as saying of Carson, “‘He believes that if you are poor it is your fault’ and ‘,he doesn’t know the difference between an immigrant and a slave,’  whatever that means.” Carlson continues, “Now we’ve mocked Maxine Waters before on the show, but we should take her seriously on this subject.” He says, “Congresswoman Waters is a confirmed expert on the question of housing, especially her own housing. Consider where she lives – in a 6,000 square foot, $4.3 million mansion in one of the wealthiest neighborhoods in Los Angeles...
European Parliament to host terrorists' relatives
{} ~ Seventeen European Parliament members from all across the political spectrum are opposing their leftist colleagues' initiative, which would invite family members of convicted terrorists to the Parliament building... In a letter to the European Parliament President Antonio Tajani, the signatories wrote, "We are utterly appalled at the understanding that our colleagues from the Delegation for Relations with Palestine (DPAL), under the pretext of discussing 'the situation of the Palestinian prisoners in Israeli jails after the hunger-strike,' are in fact offering a public platform to relatives of convicted terrorists." "We, Members of the European Parliament, are seriously concerned with the message this forum sends to our constituencies amidst such turbulent times in Europe...
North Korean Missile Threat Proves 
Need for More Investment in Missile Defense
by Jordan Bernstein
{} ~ Policymakers writing the 2018 National Defense Authorization Act are responsible for crafting new defense policies to deal with an increasingly turbulent and dangerous world... Sen. Dan Sullivan, R-Alaska, and a bipartisan coalition of cosponsors are working to mitigate North Korea’s nuclear threat by passing the Advancing American Missile Defense Act. While critics argue the ground-based system is weak and flawed, they are wrong. It is the only U.S. system capable of eliminating an intercontinental ballistic missile during its midcourse phase of flight...
 Trump's Nuclear Energy Ambitions 
By Paul Albaugh:  President Donald Trump has made some significant policy promises regarding America's energy sector. For most Americans, his policies are extremely welcome news because the days of excessive government regulation and oversight of our nation's ability to tap into and produce vast amounts of energy will be ending soon.
          During a speech last Thursday on energy policy, Trump offered a stark contrast with his predecessor on not just pursuing energy independence for America, but "American energy dominance." He outlined a six-pronged approach to doing so.
          Put simply, unlike Barack liar-nObama, who implemented onerous regulations on coal, off-shore drilling and other fossil fuel production methods — while demanding unrealistic increases in unreliable and expensive wind and solar power — Trump is taking an all-of-the-above approach to unleash American innovation to produce more energy than ever before.
          Notably, the first part of his six-pronged approach is to "revive and expand our nuclear energy sector," which will begin with a study on the issue. The study will analyze regulatory challenges that need to be addressed and offer possible solutions for fixing them. Furthermore, the study will take stock of costs associated with nuclear energy production and building additional nuclear reactors — much of which is regulatory burden. There weren't a lot of details given in advance of this study, but recognizing a problem is the first step in coming up with a solution.
          During a White House Press briefing, Energy Secretary Rick Perry stated without reservation that America needs to regain a "leadership role" in developing nuclear energy. "We really need to have a conversation with our country about making sure that America stays technologically and economically engaged on the nuclear side," he said, "because if we do not then China and Russia will fill that void."
          Perry also noted that the Trump administration will "end the current blockade that has hindered American energy creation," and he gave a passionate defense of nuclear power that is sure to irritate leftists. Perry pledged to make nuclear energy "cool again" and added that "no clean-energy portfolio is truly complete without nuclear power."
          Perry, Trump and other administration officials believe that nuclear energy development is important for America and that it can be a "game changer." They're absolutely right, but there are numerous obstacles that will need to be overcome if nuclear energy is truly going to be part of Trump's plan for American energy dominance.
          The nuclear industry is currently ailing with many construction projects being costlier than anticipated. One of the major nuclear reactor builders, Westinghouse, filed for bankruptcy this year after losing money on construction projects in South Carolina and Georgia. The projects were three years past due and cost between $1 to $1.3 billion more than expected. But the costs and timeframe were primarily due to — surprise — government regulation. Perry and the Trump administration intend to address these burdensome regulations and will push for incentives aimed at giving our younger generation a renewed interest in studying nuclear energy production.
          You can bet that the push for American energy dominance and independence, with nuclear energy being at the forefront, will outrage ecofascists. As usual, they'll cry that Trump is trying to destroy the planet. For years, the Left has ignored nuclear power because words like "weapon" and "waste" come to mind whenever the word nuclear is mentioned. But nuclear power is clean energy just like wind and solar, and leftists have been making a terrible mistake by ignoring the benefits that come with nuclear power.
          Approximately 20% of America's electricity comes from nuclear power. The nuclear reactors currently in operation produce four times the amount of energy that wind power can and 21 times the amount that solar power does. By the way, it's also cheaper to produce than wind and solar, and because of research and innovation it is a safe means of producing energy.
          If Trump can follow through with his energy plans, we may very well see another example of American greatness through the harnessing and use of the vast energy resources with which our nation has been so richly blessed. ~The Patriot Post
