As predicted, GOP tax cuts prompt record tax revenues

Remember when Democrats mocked last year’s tax-cut legislation? And Nancy Pelosi called the tax breaks for Americans “crumbs”? But President Trump and congressional Republicans said they would ignite a booming economy and actually increase federal tax collections from greater economic activity including more consumer spending, business investments, higher wages and even employee bonuses. Well, guess Read More…

In 2020 push, Trump eyes … Minnesota?

Donald Trump wouldn’t be the first Republican president to listen to Minnesota’s looney siren song for the GOP, but his team should know to plug their ears. David Drucker reported yesterday that America First Action, Trump’s main super-PAC, will spend considerable time and effort into swinging this state into the red column in 2020. If Read More…

AP: Abrams wants a do-over in Georgia

So far most of the post-election fun has taken place in Florida, but Georgia might end up topping even Broward County for sheer chutzpah.

Trump: Don’t forget that Mueller probe is a total, raging, screaming witch hunt

How could we forget? Well, Donald Trump has been relatively quiet about the Robert Mueller probe lately, perhaps because of his work with his legal team in answering Mueller’s questions in writing. This morning, however, Trump let his anger out for an early morning walk in the Twitter neighborhood: The inner workings of the Mueller investigation are Read More…

Hoo boy: Trump admin reportedly looking to deport Turkish dissident to get Erdogan to back off Saudi Arabia

So amazingly gross that I can’t believe they’d actually entertain the idea. The stench would linger for years. The public backlash would actually end up damaging relations with Saudi Arabia instead of restoring them, which is the ostensible purpose of this insanity. Imagine that the “solution” to the Saudis getting caught red-handed murdering a prominent Read More…
