Why Wall Street Must Get Ready for Maxine Waters

By Stephen Moore • Stephen Moore, a columnist for The Washington Times, is a senior fellow at the Heritage Foundation. His new book with Arthur Laffer is “Trumponomics.”

November 11, 2018

Democratic Rep. Maxine Waters of California appears a lock to become the next chairman of the powerful Financial Services Committee. Ms. Waters is pledging to be a diligent watchdog for mom and pop investors, and recently told a crowd that when it comes to the big banks, investment houses and insurance companies, “we are going to do to them, what they did to us.” I’m not going to cry too many tears for Wall Street since they poured money behind the Democrats in these midterm elections. You get what you pay for.

But here we go again asking the fox to guard the hen house.

Back during he the financial crisis of 2008-09, which wiped out trillions of dollars of the wealth and retirement savings of middle-class families, we put the two major arsonists in charge of putting out the fire. Barney Frank of Massachusetts and Chris Dodd of Connecticut were the cosponsors of the infamous Dodd-Frank regulations. Readers will recall that good old Barney resisted every attempt to rein in Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac and said he wanted to “roll the dice” on the housing market. That worked out well.

Meanwhile, Mr. Dodd took graft payments in the form of low-interest loans from Countrywide, while greasing the skids for the housing lenders in these years. Instead of going to jail or at least being discharged dishonorably from Congress, he wrote the Dodd-Frank bill to regulate the banks.

STRAINS ON ENGLAND’S NATIONAL HEALTH SERVICE

Wednesday, December 12th, 2018

 

Please be sure to read the excerpt from this article about the strains being put on the National Health Service in England.   I thought socialized medicine was the answer to all our health care problems !!!!    Perhaps a bit of “rationing” is going on when it comes to the elderly.

 Also, sounds like there is a bit of” global cooling” going on too.  Whether it is too hot or too cold, Climate Change” covers it all !    Nancy  

THE GUARDIAN

Excess winter deaths in England and Wales highest since 1976

Call for more NHS resources as elderly people and women among most vulnerable

 

The NHS was operating year-round under such pressure that it was in a state of “eternal winter”, he said. As a result, “by the time winter actually hits, it leaves hospitals struggling to cope, having been maxed out all year round”.

He said the NHS was not well-equipped to deal with its many challenges, which included “an older, frailer population with increasingly complex medical problems, a lack of funding across health and social care to meet demand, a recruitment crisis and persistently poor performance.

“Ultimately, despite reassurances from the government and NHS leaders that enough funding has been made available and the service is coping with the additional demands placed on it, the reality is clearly different given these statistics.”

 

There were 50,100 excess deaths in England and Wales last winter, when there was a prolonged spell of extreme cold, making it the highest number since 1976, figures have shown.

The Office for National Statistics said flu and the ineffectiveness of the flu vaccine were key reasons for the rise of excess winter deaths in 2017-18.

The deaths occurred during the NHS’s most serious “winter crisis” for many years. A lack of staff and beds meant all types of health services, particularly hospitals, were unable to cope with both the number of patients needing treatment and the severity of many of their conditions.

The genius of America is that it was set up as a representative government, but increasingly, Americans are ruled over by leaders who are unelected, and very powerful. Columbia Law Professor Philip Hamburger unmasks the people who are really ruling our lives.

Philip Hamburger is the Maurice and Hilda Friedman Professor of Law at Columbia Law School. A leading scholar of constitutional law, his books Separation of Church and State, Law and Judicial Duty, and Is Administrative Law Unlawful? are all considered “must reads” in the world of legal scholarship. He is also President of the New Civil Liberties Alliance, which fights the administrative state. To join the new movement for civil liberties, visit the New Civil Liberties Alliance.

‘DRILL, BABY, DRILL !’ Palin Was Right

Sunday, December 2nd, 2018

 

AMERICAN THINKER

Palin Was Right: ‘Drill, Baby, Drill!’

Daniel John Sobieski is a freelance writer whose pieces have appeared in Investor’s Business DailyHuman Events, Reason Magazine and the Chicago Sun-Times among other publications.

Like the rooster that takes credit for the sunrise, President Barack “You Didn’t Build That” Obama woke up the other day and decided to take credit for another thing he had nothing to do with. The president who said that companies like Solyndra were the hallmark of a future in which workers drove Chevy Volts, predicted that manufacturing jobs of the past could not be brought back, not only took credit for an economy he didn’t build, but also for the energy boom he opposed which is fueling it.

Back in 2012, geologist Barack Obama, poster child for the “peak oil” crowd,  told us that calling for increased production as Alaskan Gov. Sarah Palin did. by increased drilling – “drill, baby, drill,” she called it — was not a plan, but rather “a bumper sticker.”  Obama assured us, “You know, we can’t just drill our way to lower gas prices,”

Well we have, just as those manufacturing jobs that weren’t coming back have come back. So now Obama would have us forget what he said about the fuels of  the past, as he massaged his ego one more time:

Former President Barack Obama on Tuesday took credit for booming U.S. oil and gas production, telling investors to “say thank you” to him.

Obama spoke in Houston at an event hosted by Rice University’s Baker Institute, where he praised his administration’s commitment to the Paris climate agreement before taking credit for the United States being the biggest producer of oil and gas during his administration.

 

“I was extraordinarily proud of the Paris accords because — you know, I know we’re in oil country and we need American energy, and by the way, American energy production,” Obama said.

“You wouldn’t always know it, but it went up every year I was president. That whole, suddenly America’s like the biggest oil producer and the biggest gas — that was me, people.”

Sorry, Barack, but the man who blocked the Keystone XL and Dakota Access pipelines doesn’t get to take credit for the oil that soon will be running through both. Nor is the president who opposed two technologies developed by private industry, fracking and horizontal drilling, get to take credit for the abundance They have produced,

 

Obama tried to kill off fracking with a rule designed to burden the oil industry with excessive reporting requirements which would allow the EPA to delay and derail new exploration and drilling. It was designed to kill fracking, a key part of America’s energy resurgence, based on unfounded environmentalist fears, namely that fracking poisons drinking water, accelerates climate change, and causes earthquakes. As Investor’s Business Daily commented on the Obama fracking rule enacted in 2015:

MUELLER’S QUESTIONABLE HISTORY

Saturday, December 1st, 2018

 

Mueller is trusted completely and by whom ?  Do you remember the botching of the Anthrax Killer Case of 2002 ?   The Sandy Berger ( the Clinton White House National Security Adviser)  National Archives Caper where he was caught destroying  sensitive documents and stuffing others  in his socks that pertained to the time period before the 9/11 terrorist attack when Bill Clinton was president ?  The railroading of Republican Scooter Libby ? AND  several more infamous cases that Mueller was involved in?   Details  are all in this article and makes you definitely wonder why Mueller is  trusted so completely !  Mueller just happened to be  FBI Director from 2001 to 2013.   Nancy

Revealed: Robert Mueller’s FBI Repeatedly Abused Prosecutorial Discretion

Establishment DC types who reflexively defend Mueller haven’t explained how they came to trust him so completely. It’s a question worth asking given the bumpy historical record of Mueller’s tenure as FBI director.
Mollie Hemingway

By Mollie Hemingway

Mollie Ziegler Hemingway is a senior editor at The Federalist.

Journalist Mike Allen of Axios recently said that one word described Special Counsel Robert Mueller, and that word was “unafraid.”

The context for his remarks on Fox News’ “Special Report” was that Mueller had just spun off to the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York a bit of his limitless investigation into President Donald J. Trump. Allen’s comment was like so many others from media and pundit types since the special counsel was launched. If there’s one word to describe the media’s relationship to Mueller, it’s “unquestioning.”

Pundits and politicians have said, repeatedly, that he is “somebody we all trust” with “impeccable credentials.” No matter what his office does, from hiring Democratic donors to run the Trump probe to aggressively prosecuting process crimes, he is defended by most media voices. Criticism of Mueller by people who aren’t part of the Trump Resistance is strongly fought, with claims that disapproval of anything related to Mueller and how he runs his investigation undermine the rule of law.

SPYGATE: EXPOSING THE OBAMA/CLINTON DEEP STATE CRIMINALITYY

Another excellent article by Frank Hawkins.   Nancy

Bongino’s Spygate: Exposing the Obama/Clinton Deep State Criminality

Former Secret Service agent Dan Bongino’s explosive new book (with D.C. McAllister), Spygate: The Attempted Sabotage of Donald J. Trump, spotlights the left’s broken trust with the American people and the blatant criminality of  the Obama/Clinton Deep State.  Since the moment Donald J. Trump and his wife Melania glided down the Trump Tower escalator into history, the Democrats and the allies in the Deep State have been committed to crushing him.

For Trump, it was obvious that draining the swamp was never going to be easy because everything possible would be done to disguise and protect the illegal activities of the Obama/Clinton administration. But who thought they would go this far?

Bongino has painted a highly detailed account of how the Obama administration criminalized our intelligence communities as well as other government agencies to  stop Trump, and when that didn’t work to try and bring down the president of the United States.

The book relies heavily on left-leaning news outlets CNN, the Washington Post, the New York Times, Reuters, CBS News, The Hill, London-based The Guardian and numerous others. All of this is carefully footnoted in the book. In a recent speech, Bongino said,

VIDEO THE ORIGIN OF GUN VIOLENCE

Thursday, November 29th, 2018
Thanks to Gary Kanady for sharing this excellent video of Governor Bevin explaining how the corruption of our culture is affecting the violent behavior of our youth. One of the  points that Governor Bevin made really hit home with me.  He spoke of guns always being in many of our homes in the past and there were no mass gun shootings, especially in the schools.  It was never an issue  until the past 20 years or so.    I grew up in Pennsylvania which is known for its deer hunting.  Nearly everyone had hunting rifles in their homes, including my own.  Gun violence was unheard of when I was growing up.  Something has changed and I do believe Governor Bevin is correct that our culture has been corrupted.  I call it Culture Rot and there is a special category on our Conservative Women’s website regarding Culture Rot.  www.conservativewomensforum.com   The governor also mentions violent video games which I have been complaining about to my own children.      Nancy   P.S.   This video is from facebook and if perhaps you are unable to view it, it may be because you are not on facebook
