Government Executive Mgmt March 16, 2017 (all emphasis is mine) With the aim of “making government work again,” the Trump White House on Thursday unveiled a $1.1 trillion budget blueprint for discretionary spending in fiscal 2017 and 2018 that would abolish 19 agencies and eliminate thousands of agency jobs. The 54-page “America First” document, focused primarily on fiscal 2018, would boost the Defense Department and related programs at … Continue reading

Andrew Napolitano: Judge Approves Temporary Restraining Order

WTF!  Since when did the judiciary have purview over national Security? Prez Trump simply needs to flip off the Court and take care of business.  The judge citing what Trump may have or may not have said on the campaign trail has nothing to do with anything.  Next…. These lefty assholes in black robes won’t be happy until the next 9-1-1 or jihadi attack on our homeland and then they’ll be pointing fingers and blaming everyone else except themselves.  For crying out loud… how many innocents need to be killed before common sense kicks in?  There are dozens of examples … Continue reading

Unmasking Protestors – Could This Be A Way To Stop Them

On March 4 in Denver, there was a protest held on the steps of their capitol building. I nearly fell out of my chair laughing when I saw the video below. Could unwittingly someone have found an answer to stopping protestors? Could the rally officers have actually found a way to forestall demonstrators and lower the risk of violence? Those holding the rally were pro-Trump and pro-USA, polite with little yelling, reasonable, and none were masked. Then the protestors showed up. So the rally people began to find ways to shout down those who arrived to protest. Second was that there was … Continue reading

The Sad State of Journalism Today – Narrative vs Neutrality

  WHITE HOUSE Trump 2005 tax files released by MSNBC, White House rips ‘desperate’ story Published March 14, 2017 In another major leak for the White House, MSNBC on Tuesday night released a portion of President Trump’s 2005 tax documents – drawing a stern rebuke from the administration. Host Rachel Maddow said the two-page summary of Trump’s federal return for that year was first obtained by journalist David Cay Johnston, who gave MSNBC a first look at the documents. It is unclear who leaked them. Johnston, with the website DCReport.org, said only that he found the documents “in the mail.” … Continue reading

Prez Trump Orders Cabinet to Shrink Departments & Agencies

More winning!  20% reductions!  Whoo hoo! Naturally, those fleecing the treasury are barfing on their shoes over this announcement.  The feeding trough will be shrinking bigley as it should.  Take for example the Department of Education.  There are Federal, State, and Local departments that all basically do the same thing with hundred of thousands of employees and they don’t educate a single child.  Imagine if all that wasted money was actually used to educate our kids. Ditto with the EPA.  There are Federal, State and Local departments that all do the same thing.  Try digging a pond.  One needs to … Continue reading

Heads Explode – Prez Trump Orders T-Rex to Cut UN Funding by 50%

This is called winning! From the Hill: President Trump’s administration has told the State Department to cut more than 50 percent of U.S. funding to United Nations programs, Foreign Policy reported. The push for the drastic reductions comes as the White House is scheduled to release its 2018 topline budget proposal Thursday, which is expected to include a 37 percent cut to the State Department and U.S. Agency for International Development budgets. It’s not clear if Trump’s budget plan, from the Office of Management and Budget, would reflect the full extent of Trump’s proposed cuts to the U.N. Secretary of … Continue reading

The Kicker On Cannabis – Pros and Cons

  The use and retail possibilities of cannabis in medicine, industry, and to some extent recreational use is rapidly growing more obvious every day. Like every natural medicine, cannabis is being found to have some benefits and side effects. Recreational use assumes nothing done on a heavy daily basis or for a great length of time. However, there is a kicker – there always is. First, not a great deal of clinically sound study has been done on long-term effects or dependency. For instance, in some cases elevated heart rate can exacerbate heart conditions and yet in seriously ill patients … Continue reading

Iranian National Sentenced – $36.6 Million Restitution and 10 years Behind Bars

Life At University And In The Bureaucracy: The Department Of Nice

Prolly the best take-down of the modern American university environment, and of federal bureaucracies, that I have ever read.  Courtesy of TheZMan blog, 9 March 2017.  Enjoy! The Department of Nice The other day, I was at the Department of Nice. It is in the Imperial Capital area and while it is not a very pleasant commute, once you are there, it is very nice. It’s still technically winter here, but the weather was very mild, in the 60’s with a gentle breeze. Many of the nice people, who work in the Department of Nice, took advantage of the nice … Continue reading

Why Increased Infrastructure Spending Is Not A Full Answer To America’s Employment Problems

Gary North recently posted an article that shows just how far quality pre-fabricated and computer-printed construction techniques have come in the building industry.  While these methods do not apply to high-end custom single-family homes,  they are already having an impact in the modular home market, as well as the suburban strip and downtown highrise arenas. As a licensed general contractor, I’ve seen homebuyers in the low- and mid-price ranges (under $200K in my market) already migrate to prefabricated / modular homes over stickbuilt.  Not only is there a significant cost advantage (even including site prep and foundation work), the quality … Continue reading

Gold Star Father… Khan’s Travel Privileges Being Reviewed?

From Canada Free Press You remember this guy, right? He got up and spoke at the Democratic National Convention, the Gold Star father of a dead U.S. Marine, blasting Donald Trump for daring to question the patriotism of Muslim Americans. Of course, Trump never questioned any such thing. He made the fairly obvious observation that most terrorists are Muslims, which is not even in the same universe with tarring the patriotism of Muslims in general – but never let it be said Democrats will pass up the chance to craft a totally dishonest narrative if they think it will help … Continue reading

NYT – Obama Admin Rushed To Preserve Russian Hacking Info

Look Out President Trump

because EX-president Stamp Foot is mad. EXCERPT:  “Keeping a low profile in post-presidency, Obama – who is currently writing a book for which he will receive tens of millions in proceeds – had decided he wouldn’t respond to every intemperate Trump tweet, an aide said. “But he was livid over the accusation that he bugged the Republican campaign offices, believing that Mr. Trump was questioning both the integrity of the office of the president and Mr. Obama himself, people familiar with his thinking said.” So EX-president Stampy Foot was livid? That is one of the oldest tricks in the book … Continue reading
