“House Democrats plan to probe every aspect of President (Donald) Trump’s life and work, from family business dealings to the Space Force to his tax returns to possible ‘leverage’ by Russia, top Democrats tell us….
“Top Democrats, who had largely avoided the subject during the campaign, now tell us they plan to almost immediately begin exploring possible grounds for impeachment….
“Two of the most powerful incoming chairs tell ‘Axios on HBO’ that they are plotting action far beyond Russian interference in the 2016 elections.”
So if you voted for Democrats…well, sorry, you’re a fool. But if you did it in the hopes of advancing the interests of the American people – or for any reason other than you want them to waste two years on wild Trump goose chases – well, you’re a sucker and a fool. (more…)
In no small part because of very stupid, anti-First Amendment campaign finance “reform” laws – there exist non-profit entities that were created to allow us to engage in government-approved-and-limited political speech.
The three most populous such federal entities – are colloquially named after their Internal Revenue Service (IRS) tax code designations. They are the 501(C)3, the 501(C)4 and the 527.
Each has different requirements for how much of your speech you have to clear with the government. But make no mistake – all of them have government-speech-approval requirements. And – government-mandated speech limits.
And of course – to varying degrees, each of the fifty states has similar laws and entities in place.
I think the entire campaign finance “reform” uber-structure – is an affront to thinking humans everywhere.
That being said: As long as we are blighted with these awful laws and requirements – I’d like to see everyone be equally so blighted. (more…)
“‘Trade Wars’ actually aren’t about trade – they are about government trade policy.
“If peoples are trading freely, there isn’t a ‘War’ – there’s commerce. The ‘Wars’ only happen when governments get involved, placing tariffs, regulations and subsidies in the way of the flow.”
The goal – is actually free trade. Which means – zero government. Zero tariffs, zero importation limits and zero subsidies.
For which now-President Donald Trump has been calling – for decades. Ask Oprah Winfrey.
The global entity that exists to allegedly adjudicate trade disputes – is the World Trade Organization (WTO). And just like with every government entity – global or otherwise – it has failed nigh utterly in its mission. (See also: The United Nations.) (more…)
The relatively brief history of the Internet – is a quarter-century visual aide of how the Left looks to over-regulate things.
The Left always wants…more. They are the Oliver Twist of regulations.
So let’s not hand them the keys to DC next Tuesday, eh?
Simplistically but accurately speaking, the Internet was privatized in the 1990s. A Republican Congress wrote a telecommunications bill – basically leaving it regulation-free. Which Democrat President Bill Clinton signed into law.
So the baseline for regulation was – none. A concept that, of course, never sat well with the Left.
Once it became clear how incredible and incredibly huge the Internet could and would be – the Left started looking for ways to dig government’s hooks into it – so it could then begin reeling it in. (more…)
