After racking up victories against the Obama administration before the Supreme Court, Noel Francisco is expected to be confirmed by the Senate to manage the Trump administration’s cases there.

“If you asked any conservative attorney in this town, they would put Noel in the top five legal minds,” @Curt_Levey says.

President Donald Trump nominated Francisco, who clerked for the late Justice Antonin Scalia and was a lawyer in the George W. Bush administration, to be his solicitor general.

A Senate committee approved the nomination four months ago. Democrats have stalled a final

ECONOMYNEWS Conservatives Call for Tax Reform to ‘Put Small Businesses Back at the Heart of America’s Economy’

“We spend more on filing taxes every year than we put into innovation in many, many cases,” says Rep. Bill Johnson, R-Ohio. (Photo: Bill Clark/CQ Roll Call/Newscom)

Meaningful tax reform is about putting small businesses at a competitive advantage, the leader of a nonpartisan organization committed to limited government and economic freedom said Friday.

“Our cause is simple,” Alfredo Ortiz, the president and CEO of the Job Creators Network, said at the rally near IRS headquarters in Washington. “Put small businesses back at the heart of America’s economy. It is the right thing to do.”

The first priority should be tax cuts, he said.

“It starts with tax cuts, and

Why is anyone talking about DACA when the RAISE Act ending chain migration still has not passed?

By Robert Romano at NetRight Daily and Americans for Limited Government

“Chain migration cannot be allowed to be part of any legislation on immigration!”

Now we’re talking.

That was President Donald Trump on Twitter on Sept. 15 throwing out another condition to his calls for Congress to legalize former President Barack Obama’s Deferred Action on Childhood Arrivals (DACA) that allowed illegal immigrants brought to the U.S. as minors to remain.

The stipulation came a day after Trump, speaking in Ft. Myers, Fla. said, “Very important is the wall. We have to be sure the wall isn’t obstructed because without the wall I wouldn’t do anything… It doesn’t have to be here but they can’t obstruct the wall if its in

Fundamentally Wrong About Fundamental Rights

Share

By Derek Hunter at Townhall |

Did you realize you have a right to not be offended? That you have a right to other people’s property and their labor? Were you unaware that you, as a citizen, have the same rights in the United States of America as an illegal alien? These are among the newly declared “rights” Democrats have bestowed on people through the power of simply saying they exist. The problem is this concept is fundamentally un-American.

Taking the Red Pill: Democrats Are Losing Support Fast

Share

~ Conservative Zone

Eight years of job-killing economic policies, failure to close out the War on Terror and Hillary Clinton’s 41 excuses why she lost the November election add up to one thing . . . would-be Democrats are taking “The Red Pill” and moving right.

If you are not a Science Fiction fan, you might be asking: what exactly is “The Red Pill?”

In the “The Matrix,” star Keanu Reeves is told, “You take the blue pill, the story ends. You wake up in your bed and believe whatever you want to believe. You take the red pill, you stay in wonderland, and I show you how deep the rabbit hole goes.”

It seems politically fitting that “blue pill” people are not aware

An institute that works to “end family breakdown” lost its payment processing company after the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), an Alabama-based liberal 501 (c)(3) nonprofit, had labeled the organization as a “hate group.”

The SPLC fought the Ku Klux Klan in the 1970s but is now best known for its “hate map,” which features mainstream conservative groups alongside hate groups like the KKK. The group has turned into
