Poor pitiful Planned Parenthood. A new rule on Title X funding, a program designed to provide health services to low income people, went into effect Monday, courtesy of the 9th Circuit U.S. Court Appeals — the most liberal appeals court in the nation. Therefore, the nation’s behemoth abortion provider will fall on its sword — make that the scalpels and suction machines it uses to end the lives of hundreds of thousands of babies a year —rather than abide by it. As a result, Planned Parenthood will lose $60 million in government funds.
All Planned Parenthood had to do to receive this money was stop referring the women it sees for pregnancy tests to its abortion business in the next room. Planned Parenthood can’t do that because, despite what it says about providing health services, abortion is its “core mission.” Continue reading “Poor Pitiful Planned Parenthood”
Don’t look now, but the world’s greatest negotiator just got rolled on a budget deal by a couple of snake oil salesman and you will end up paying the bill.
Don’t blame Nancy Pelosi. She does what she has always done. Her game plan has always been the same. It has never changed. However, the president refused to listen to the grownups in the White House — Chief of staff Mick Mulvaney and Russell Vought, the acting director of the Office of Management and Budget —who had studied it and prepared an adequate defense.
No, the two guys holding out the bottle of magic miracle tonic were none other than Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. They claim it contains the solution to all Trump’s current problems. All he has to do is agree to raise the debt ceiling. Drop his insistence that there be real offsets for a heavy round of new spending that bust the caps in the 2011 Budget Control Act — the hard fought victory won by the tea-party Congress — and call it a victory for national defense.
Just drink the contents in this little bottle and Continue reading “World’s Greatest Negotiator Just Got Rolled”
The nation’s southern border is an open sieve. As a result, thousands of people from Central America and countless other countries are storming into the country every day along with untold amounts of drugs and other contraband. The Border Patrol is helpless to stop it, reduced to playing the role of a nanny due to the increased numbers of adults with minors in tow.
It is a thankless job. These brave individuals are often attacked physically by those attempting to gain illegal entry and now verbally by some ungrateful members of Congress. It is a shameful situation! Continue reading “Anatomy of the Immigration Crisis”
President Trump has been playing a high stakes game of poker with Democrat over the issue of illegal immigration.
After going several rounds with Democrats that included various concessions, he went “all-in,” by announcing that there would be raids to pick up the lawbreakers. These are to round up people who have had their cases adjudicated and received a final order of removal. They have been instructed to contact their local ICE office and report with their families for deportation.
Far from being inhuman, these gate-crashers have been given time to get the things together they accumulated here while on what amounts to an unauthorized extended vacation. They get free transportation home in air conditioned comfort with meals and drinks served along the way, courtesy of U.S. taxpayers — a far cry from how they arrived! Instead of complying with the order, they simply dared authorities to come and get them. Continue reading “The President’s High-Stakes Poker Game on Illegal Immigration”
What’s a president to do about the crisis on our southern border? It’s hard enough fighting a political party that owes its very existence to illegal immigration and will provide nothing to stop the flow through our border with Mexico. However, it’s members of Trump’s own party who are pulling the rug out from under him, again.
Democrats in the House refuse to pass the laws that are needed to immediately deport those streaming into our country from Central America. They refuse to give up the money for a border barrier or any kind of meaningful security. They refuse to provide the money for additional detention facilities or even humanitarian aid to the illegal border crossers. For Democrats, nothing will do other than simply releasing these gate crashers into our country.
So Trump has attempted to use the laws at his disposal to stop the flow himself. Unfortunately, it’s his own party that is cutting him off at the knees. Continue reading “Guess Who Is Pulling the Rug out from under Trump, again”
Democrats have an answer for their critics who question why they are spending time investigating President Trump instead of addressing the urgent needs of the country: “We can walk and chew gum at the same time,” they tell us.
Well its time they start chewing gum! Continue reading “Time to Chew Gum (Call Democrats’ Bluff on Immigration)”
