Judges Seated by Trump Begin to Transform ‘9th Circus’

The Trump administration gained a rare victory this summer in the most unlikely of venues—the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, which is widely viewed as the most liberal federal appeals court.

One big reason: President Donald Trump’s appointments to the 9th Circuit have moved it closer to ideological balance.

The court, long known for being both liberal and among the most overturned circuits, has been a thorn in Trump’s side, ruling against

Tlaib Said Trump Should Be Deported in 2015

News Commentary By Rusty | Featured Contributor | ThePoliticalInsider

Rep. Rashida Tlaib, responding to an article about then-candidate Donald Trump’s proposal to close borders in an effort to stop radical Islamic terrorists from entering the country in 2015, suggested he should be deported.

Which, of course, playing by their own rules today, is a super-racist and bigoted thing to say.

In a column shared by Tlaib, Trump states his wish to close the borders in the wake of the San Bernardino terrorist attack until better vetting can be implemented.

“Until we are able to determine and understand this problem and the dangerous threat it poses, our country cannot be the victims of horrendous attacks by people that believe only

Is The Presidency Getting Too Attractive?

If we can reduce the power of the presidency to constitutional levels, it may not be worth the effort for the power-hungry, the social climbers, and the money-grubbers.

By Shawnna Morris @fee.org

Imagine you are applying for a new job. The selection process is viciously competitive and will last for two years. During that time you will endure a relentless travel schedule, hostile interviews, invasive background checks, public humiliation, personal insults, and anonymous death threats. Why would you put yourself through this?

Because the job is president of the United States, and the payoff is huge.

Sure, some people run for president because they feel called to make the country a better place, but not everyone’s motives are noble.

The Economic Cost of Cuban Socialism

Cuba has a sad history. It traded a regular dictatorship for a communist dictatorship six decades ago, and the results have been predictably awful.

By Daniel J. Mitchell @fee.org

Cuba has a very sad history. It traded a regular dictatorship for a communist dictatorship six decades ago, and the results have been predictably awful.

Oppression, persecution, rationing, spying, deprivation, and suffering are facts of life.

For a while, it was subsidized by the Soviet Union, but that communist system eventually collapsed. More recently, it’s been subsidized by Venezuela, but now that socialist system also is collapsing.

And this means extra hardship for the people of Cuba.

‘The most likely explanation for the loss was that Hillary Clinton was on the ballot’ Sen. Cory Booker/ Getty Images

The Washington Post gave Senator Cory Booker (D., N.J.) four pinocchios for his claim that voter suppression was responsible for Democrats losing Michigan in 2016.

“We lost the state of Michigan because everybody from Republicans to Russians were targeting the suppression of African American voters,” Booker said during the Democratic debate on Wednesday, a claim that the Post says is supported by no evidence. “Election experts say they see little or no evidence that the activities by the Russians and the Trump campaign actually swayed the election in

Steve Moore in the Wall Street Journal: Counter Inequality With Private Social Security Accounts

BY STEVE MOORE AND JEFF YASS/ FREEDOMWORKS Originally Published in The Wall Street Journal by Steve Moore and Jeff Yass on 7/26/19.

Democratic presidential candidates like Elizabeth Warren and Cory Booker have made inequality a central issue in the campaign. But their plans for minimum-wage hikes, wealth taxes and income-tax rates of 50% to 70% would restrain the economy and hurt all Americans. At least they have ideas. Republicans seem to have few of their own to boost the wealth of working- and middle-class people, ceding the debate to the Democrats and their ill designs.

Fortunately, a simple solution exists: Help workers become owners and grow their investment income. Mr. Booker was exactly right when he said recently: “A paycheck will help

Conservative Zone

The previous goodwill of the Mexican people has run its course as criminals and desperately poor migrants from Central American and Africa flood the country siphoning off jobs and resources.

The lure of open borders, sanctuary cities, and perpetual welfare provided on the backs of hard-working American taxpayers has resulted in an overwhelming number of migrants traveling through Mexico. The massive caravans have exploited the Mexican government’s willingness to feed, clothe, and house migrants that are in their country illegally. The U.S. southern neighbor has now grown weary of exhausting its resources when its own people are not enjoying a standard of living even remotely similar to its northern neighbors.
