Trump's Record Pace on Deregulation
https://cached-assets.patriotpost.us/images/2017-02-03-81b55963_large.jpeg" width="454" height="338" />
by Buiness Review Board: Donald Trump is on a record pace. If he continues at this rate he will surpass the great deregulator himself, Ronald Reagan. According to the Competitive Enterprise Institute (CEI), Trump has issued 58% fewer regulations than did Barack liar-nObama, and he has cut down the Federal Register by 32%. Trump’s commitment to cut two regulations for every new one has saved Americans $560 million. CEI Vice President Clyde Wayne Crews said, “It took a few years for Ronald Reagan to achieve his ultimate, one-third reduction in Federal Register pages following Jimmy Carter’s then-record Federal Register. So by this metric, Trump is moving much faster.” Trump also has presented the lowest number of big rules for a first-year president since George H. W. Bush.

          Still, Trump is facing a mammoth regulatory state that ballooned under eight years of liar-nObama. In 2016 alone, the liar-nObama administration issued more than 2,600 new rules, including 54 major regulations, costing Americans $14.7 billion annually. The Heritage Foundation estimates that the overall cost of regulations created by liar-nObama costs the country $112 billion annually. In other words, Trump still has a long way to go.
          In that vein, Energy Secretary Rick Perry is stepping to the plate. Environmental regulations are some of the most onerous of them all, and liar-nObama particularly enjoyed “saving the planet” by tightening the screws on all Americans. Perry is acting to mitigate the impact upon the energy sector. Last Friday, Perry announced plans to provide loans helping two nuclear power plants proceed with construction, as well as a move to redefine how coal and nuclear plants are compensated for the electricity they produce. Perry stated, “I believe the future of nuclear energy in the United States is bright and I look forward to expanding American leadership in innovative nuclear technologies.” He also said that the nuclear plant construction would provide 6,000 construction jobs as well as 800 permanent plant jobs. Not to mention cheaper electricity for consumers.
          Perry’s announcement was welcomed by Matt Crozat of the Nuclear Energy Institute, who said, “What’s most significant about this is that we’ve been working on these issues for the better part of the last three-plus years … and what the secretary has done is said, ‘Enough talk, we need to actually act.’ And so what this is going to do is drive to some conclusion what a policy action is going to be.
          Perry is concerned with protecting “the American people from the threat of energy outages that could result from the loss of traditional base-load capacity.” Over-regulation doesn’t merely cost Americans more money, it threatens their standard of living and even their livelihood.  ~The Patriot Post

Las Vegas Sheriff – Possible Accomplice Conveniently In Tokyo, Chat If She Comes Back
https://rickwells.us/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/1010-sheriff-lombardo-1200-940x400.jpg" width="454" height="193" />
{rickwells.us} ~ A statement from Sheriff Joseph Lombardo on Monday following the horrific massacre at the Mandalay Bay shed some more light on the operations and other information regarding the case... He’s got a lot going on with this huge crime scene and large number of casualties and the odd nature of the events. Lombardo notes that there are four separate crime scenes his investigators are working, the hotel room at the hotel on the 32nd floor, the event location, the suspected perpetrator’s residence in Mesquite and a fourth location in northern Nevada, another house that SWAT is ready to move on. He reports that 18 firearms were retrieved from the Mesquite house, “some explosives” and several thousand rounds of ammo. He didn’t report whether any of those were illegal, with what he classified as explosives perhaps being legal fertilizer. He also says they took possession of “some electronic devices that we are evaluating at this point.”...  https://rickwells.us/vegas-sheriff-accomplice-tokyo/

{legalinsurrection.com} ~ Judicial Watch today announced it received two production of documents, 77 pages and 108 pages, from the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) revealing the liar-nObama IRS coordinated... with the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and the liar-nObama White House Behavioral Sciences “Team” in a $5 million program to pressure Americans to sign up for liar-nObamacare. The documents also contain inter-agency agreements between the IRS and the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) devised to circumvent potential legal prohibitions on unauthorized disclosure or inspection of taxpayer information collected by the IRS. The documents were produced under court order in an April 2017 Judicial Watch Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit against the IRS and HHS...  https://legalinsurrection.com/2017/10/judicial-watch-obamas-irs-spe...

by CHUCK ROSS
{dailycaller.com} ~ Two reports came out Monday providing new details about Trump associates’ contacts with businessmen reportedly linked to the Russian government... The Atlantic reported  more details about a series of emails that Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort exchanged with a Ukrainian business partner last year, just after he joined the Trump team. The emails, which have been turned over by the Trump campaign to Special Counsel Robert Mueller, appear to show Manafort trying use his position on the Trump campaign to curry favor with a Russian oligarch with whom he had a business dispute...How about liar-Hillary's dealing with Russia?  http://dailycaller.com/2017/10/02/these-two-reports-reveal-new-deta...

Illegal Immigration is an Economic 
Poison Pill, Costs Taxpayers Billions Annually

{lidblog.com} ~ Debates often devolve into mud-slinging competitions, and arguments morph into feigned outrage or violent protests... But from an economic perspective, the question is settled science: illegal aliens cost taxpayers billions, impoverish American workers, and are completely unnecessary for America’s economic success. According to the Federation for American Immigration Reform’s 2017 report, illegal immigrants, and their children cost American taxpayers a net $116 billion annually—roughly $7,000 per alien annually. While high, this number is not an outlier: a recent study by the Heritage Foundation found that low-skilled immigrants including those here illegally cost Americans trillions over the course of their lifetimes, and a study from the National Economics Editorial found that illegal immigration costs America over $140 billion annually. As it stands, illegal immigrants are a massive burden on American taxpayers—and so are low-skilled legal immigrants... http://lidblog.com/illegal-immigration-economic-poison-pill/

Mutilation in Maine
by Tom Mclaughlin
 
{tommclaughlin.blogspot.com} ~ The euphemism is “female circumcision,” but federal law banning it in the USA labels it “Female Genital Mutilation” or FGM, and that would seem to be the more accurate term. That law passed in 1997 but if it hadn’t, I wonder if it would pass in today’s political climate.
The issue is getting controversial and opinion is divided along left/right political lines. Generally, Republicans want to ban it and Democrats resist. There’s also disagreement about whether FGM is a Muslim religious practice or strictly an African cultural ritual. Some say it’s both.
Prevalence of FGM
 
A report in The Middle East Quarterly claims FGM is practiced in many Muslim countries beyond Africa, especially in Kurdistan, but there’s little research beyond that because such discussion is discouraged in the Muslim world. An article on stopfgmmideast.org claims FGM is discussed in a “hadith,” a singular or plural noun for accounts of what Muhammed said, which records a discussion between Muhammed and a woman who performed FGM. Muhammed said, “Yes, it is allowed … if you cut, do not overdo it, because it brings more radiance to the face, and it is more pleasant for the husband.” On the strength of that hadith, today’s Muslims do not prohibit FGM.
So how would one “overdo it”? Carmen Fishwick, writing in the UK Guardian, describes FGM thusly:

“Female genital mutilation involves the removal of the clitoris, inner-and-outer lips of the vagina, and the sewing or stapling together of the two sides of the vulva leaving only a small hole to pass urine and menstruate –- depending on the type. Typically FGM is performed with a razor blade on girls between the ages of four and 12, traditionally without anaesthetic.”
One FGM procedure only removes the clitoris.
Dr. Jumana Nagarwala
 
No one had been prosecuted in the United States under the federal law until April of this year when two Michigan doctors, Dr. Jumana Nagarwala and Dr. Fakhruddin Attar were arrested for mutilating the genitals of two young Muslim girls from Minnesota. A USA Today article claims there were many more victims and that Dr. Nagarwala regularly performed the practice but tried to cover up her activity. Nagarwala was released under $4.5 million bond two weeks ago while awaiting trial. Her attorney said she would not flee because she wants a trial: “It's a fight about a sacred religious practice,” she added. Nagarwala, a Muslim, clearly believes FGM is a religious practice. Attorney Alan Dershowitz agrees and is consulting with Nagarwala’s defense team.
Dr. Fakhruddin Attar
 
A bill to criminalize FGM in Maine failed by one vote last summer. Maine State Representative Heather Sirocki of Scarborough had introduced the bill and she told me she expects it to be reintroduced by Governor LePage in January. Opponents of Sirocki’s bill claim FGM doesn’t happen in Maine and her bill is a solution in search of a problem. Sirocki claims Maine girls are indeed being victimized. As evidence, she cites a survey of federal Medicaid data where there are codes for each procedure performed including female genital mutilation. For 2016 alone, Maine documented eight incidents of treatment for FGM — presumably medical intervention for complications resulting from FGM rather than for the procedure itself.
Maine Representative Heather Sirocki
 
When I attended a forum at St Joseph’s Church in Bridgton, Maine last year, a woman claiming to work in the Portland school system said Somali girls told her they’d been taken to Boston for the procedure. If anyone who attended can tell me that woman’s name, I’d appreciate it. Sirocki also told me that Maine’s Department of Human Services (DHS) instructs mandated reporters to notify DHS about suspected incidents of FGM, but that didn’t happen for the eight incidents reported above.
The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) lobbied against Sirocki’s bill in Maine and against a similar bill in Minnesota where it was also defeated. However, twenty-four other states have outlawed the procedure. It’s perplexing that neither the Democrat Party nor women’s groups in the US are not leading the charge against FGM. The issue would seem to be tailor-made for them. Neither do they complain about widespread abuse of women within Islam from beatings to honor killings. The same kind of myopia is evident in the European left as well.
Augustin Bahati
 
Some claim it’s multiculturalism — the idea that all cultures are equal, that no one culture is superior or inferior to any other culture — even one that oppresses women. In my conversation with Maine Representative Heather Sirocki, she cited the case of a Manchester, New Hampshire man, Augustin Bahati, 33, who was arrested last August for what the Manchester Union Leader described as “striking, pushing, grabbing, kicking and pulling out the hair of a woman who was 27 weeks pregnant…” The charges were dropped by Manchester domestic violence prosecutor Andrea Muller because “he lacked the cultural competency to participate in the American justice system.” Bahati is an immigrant from the Congo. It’s okay to beat up women in the Congo, so let him do it here too?
NH Prosecutor Andrea Muller
 
We’ll see what happens when Maine Governor LePage reintroduces the FGM bill in January.
