Report Reveals $42 Billion…….

..in Regulations Trump Could Slash on Day 1

Throughout much of his successful campaign for the presidency, President-elect Donald Trump spoke repeatedly about his intentions to roll back, if not entirely undo, many of the business-killing federal regulations put in place by President Barack Obama’s administration.

To that end, the American Action Forum dug into the regulatory nightmare emanating out of Washington, D.C., and compiled a list of dozens of regulations that could be immediately cut by Trump and the Republican-led Congress, according to The Daily Caller.

Utilizing what is known as the Congressional Review Act to invalidate at least 48 major regulations, the AAF report noted that, “Together, those rules impose more than $42.5 billion in total costs, $6.5 billion in annualized costs, and 53 million paperwork burden hours.”

“Republicans have the opportunity to enact regulatory reform on a scale not witnessed since President Reagan,” the report continued. “CRA disapproval resolutions seem poised to be a significant part of those plans.”

“Although it is unlikely that Congress will cash in all its political capital to this end, several high-profile major rules – and their sizable burdens – could go by the wayside in 2017,” the report noted, tempering expectations for a broad sweep of all burdensome regulations right away.

Furthermore, there are other regulations that may not have even been written yet that could be quickly overturned, due to various agencies in the Obama administration rushing to push through new “midnight” regulations at the last moment.

Alas, Obama’s regulators have been quite busy this year, already formulating more than 78,000 pages of new rules thus far in 2016, with an estimated cost of at least $148 billion. The administration sill has a month and a half still remaining to write more.

Analysts and report authors Sam Batkins and Dan Goldbeck provided a few examples of cuts that could immediately be made, such as to the Department of Interior’s restrictions on oil drilling in the Arctic region, or the Environmental Protection Agency‘s ludicrous fuel efficiency standards for the trucking industry.

The Arctic drilling rule has been estimated to cost more than $2 billion, while the EPA’s industry-killing fuel regulation costs soared to an astonishing $29.3 billion.

Nevertheless, we anxiously await Trump and his team to finally taking office and beginning the arduous process of taking a scythe to the field of chaff that has grown up in and around D.C.’s regulatory structure.

Wow, just look at all that money being wasted and a noose around our necks as a country. Business and energy stifled under Obama’s regulatory agencies.

I hope Trump follows through with his promise to get rid of these onerous burdens and allow us to become energy independent and for business to bloom once again providing lots of new jobs.

House votes 419-1 to DEFY Obama…

Via Allen West

If you have any doubts about President Barack Obama’s state of delusion just consider his words on Monday at his first press conference since the election. As reported by ZeroHedge: Obama said he doubts President-elect Donald Trump will scrap a deal with Iran to curtail the country’s nuclear weapons aspirations because the agreement is working. When the accord was struck in 2015, “the main argument against it was that Iran wouldn’t abide by the deal,” Obama said Monday at a White House news conference. “We now have over a year of evidence that they have abided by the deal.” 

“My suspicion is that when the president-elect comes in and is consulting with his fellow Republicans on the Hill, that they will look at the facts,” Obama said. “To unravel a deal that’s working and preventing Iran from pursuing a nuclear weapon would be hard to explain,” particularly if it leaves Iran free to reconstitute its weapons programs, he said.”

And it appears that just yesterday, members of the House of Representatives understood that as well. As reported by the Washington Examiner, The House voted overwhelmingly on Tuesday to extend an Iran sanctions law for another 10 years, amid growing worries that the U.S. needs to keep some leverage over Iran as it pushes for that country to implement the nuclear agreement. 

Lawmakers voted 419-1 in favor of extending the Iran Sanctions Act, the foundation of a range of U.S. sanctions against Iran. 

The only vote against the bill came from Rep. Thomas Massie, R-Ky. 

The vote is a sign the bill should easily pass the Senate. House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., said passage shows that Congress is ready to take a tougher stance on Iran than that of President Obama. While Obama has moved to ease sanctions against Iran, Republicans and even some Democrats say the U.S. needs to impose tougher measures to ensure Iran’s compliance.

“The nuclear deal has provided cover for Iran,” he said. “They are exerting more and more control in Iraq, sending arms to rebels in Yemen, and continue to support terrorist groups like Hezbollah that antagonize Israel.” 

“All the while, the Obama Administration has refused to hold Iran accountable or even call Iran out for violating the nuclear deal by exceeding limits on heavy water,” he added. “But we cannot let Iran increase its regional influence and undermine American interests unopposed.” 

“Congress needs these sanction authorities to respond to Iran’s violations and check Iran’s growing influence in the region,” he said. “Sanctions are what brought Iran to the table, and they can bring Iran to heel again.”

Obama, the Never Ending Critic

In each of the countries Obama visited on his last tour, he made sure he undermined Trump. I’ve never seen another President doing this in my life time. Unlike Bush, who graciously stayed out of Obama’s business without one word of criticism, Obama does not plan to follow in Bush’s footsteps.

During his visit to Peru, he stated he will speak up if Trump plans to follow up on his own agenda, one that Obama sees as “dangerous”.

Obama, while speaking in Lima, Peru on the final day of his last trip abroad, spent the majority of his trip answering questions on what a Trump presidency will mean for international allies—including America’s influence globally.

“Obama—concluding the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation summit in Lima—acknowledged that he wouldn’t hesitate to play critic in a Trump presidency if “necessary.”

“I want to be respectful of the office and give the President-elect an opportunity to put forward his platform and his arguments without somebody popping off in every instance,” Obama said.

“If there’s specifics that have less to do with some proposal or battle but goes to the core questions about our values and our ideals, and if I think that it’s necessary or helpful for me to defend those ideal then I’ll examine it when it comes.”

“The President also reiterated that while he “can’t guarantee” that Trump won’t pursue some of the positions he’s taken on the campaign trail, the President said reality would “force” Trump to “adjust” how he approaches those issues in office.”

“As an American citizen who cares deeply about our country, if there are issues that have less to do with the specifics of some legislative proposal but go to core questions about our values and our ideals, and if I think that it is necessary or helpful for me to defend those ideals, I’ll examine it when it comes.”

Our ideals! What does Obama really know about our ideals? He has never been about American values or ideals, but his dictatorial agenda forced on us.

Just what does having 96 million people unemployed have anything to do with our ideals?  The American values are working people whose ideals are to rise above their station in life. This was always the way things were until Obama came along.

What does being on welfare and food stamps have to do with our ideals.

What does globalism have to do with our ideals?

The American people voted out their very flawed candidate and wanted their country back to the way it used to be. Lots of patriotism, lots of jobs, the ending of the UN global takeover of our country.

Our country wants to be released from the strangling regulations and rules by bureaucrats taking away our jobs, our businesses and our economic freedom, our energy independence.

Also he includes his “love for our country”. He never did love our country or us. His whole administration was one of being destructive as possible. He did not care about our country, but hated it and us.

Just when we thought we’d be rid of this jackal, he will return and the leftist media will be standing outside his door with their mics stuck in his face to garner his “wisdom”.  He plans to be the co-president of Mr. Trump.

It’s time for him to STFU and get out of our lives. We don’t want you, Barack Hussein Obama. Get the hell out of our way!

Comey: No Charges for Hillary

 

hillary-and-comeyOnce again Comey gives Hillary the “Get out of jail free” card.

I’m sure the DOJ and Obama made sure the new investigation went nowhere.

Now, is there anyone brave enough to take her down?  Is there anyone with enough honor to risk their life to take down the Evil Witch of Benghazi?

There are others with the same information, but the DOJ is sitting on them too. The NYPD has all of the information but who is going to risk their life to expose it?  I don’t think anyone now.

Everyone around the Clintons get paid off to do her bidding. That includes so many tentacles it would be impossible to make a map of where the octopus roams. I would imagine all over the world.

The Clinton Cartel and all who are involved in it are worse than the mafia. They are now too big and too dangerous to take down.

We know our government is completely corrupt.

More than the Clintons are involved in the Cartel. Many politicians on both sides of the aisle are involved.

The Globalists, the media, the DNC, to name a few of the bad actors are all in collusion to make sure she never gets charged for any of her felonies.

We are doomed. And what happens to all of us who are the deplorables and irredeemables she so hates?

Given the unprecedented ignorance, laziness and apathy of today’s America we are, just 240 years later, only microns away from losing our precious republic.

AMERICA, WAKE UP!! THIS SNAKE IS ABOUT TO BITE!! AND AT THIS CRUCIAL TIME IN OUR WOUNDED NATION’S DARKEST HOUR, HER VENOM HAS NO ANTIDOTE!!  By

 

BREAKING: FBI Director Orders ALL AGENTS To Report To HQ, Prepare For RAIDS And ARRESTS From The “TOP DOWN”

BREAKING: FBI Director Orders ALL AGENTS To Report To HQ, Prepare For RAIDS And ARRESTS From The “TOP DOWN”

Dean James III% AMERICA’S FREEDOM FIGHTERS –

FBI Director James Comey has instructed all available special agents from the Washington D.C. field office and Hoover Building headquarters to report to work immediately in preparation for mass raids and arrests in the Clinton investigation. 

The website True Pundit is reporting they have a source within federal law enforcement that claims that the FBI is either preparing to conduct sweeping search warrants in the Clinton Foundation investigation or ready to start arresting suspects. Or both. If a grand jury has been convened by the Justice Department since Comey’s decision to re-open the Hillary Clinton case last week, then the FBI could make arrests if indictments were handed down by Thursday (yesterday). If not, it is more likely FBI agents are being amassed for multiple simultaneous raids on suspects’ homes and businesses to secure warrant-backed evidence.

“We’re preparing for many arrests from the top down,” the FBI source said. “I cannot elaborate beyond that.”

When pressed to better define what “from the top down” meant in terms of possible suspects, the source refused to elaborate.

“You’re a smart guy; read between the lines,” the source said.

Sean Brown at PolitiCulture reports that the emails found on Anthony Weiner’s laptop were all new to the bureau and were actually a full backup of Clinton’s phone while she was secretary of state. That means the FBI now likely has every email that she previously deleted, and since we all know that they weren’t talking about yoga and wedding cakes, this isn’t going to play out too well for Hillary or her crew.

These emails have allegedly revealed far more serious crimes than we had ever imagined, crimes that include child sex trafficking, money laundering, and pay to play through the Clinton Foundation.

I’m not able to verify if this is true, but if it is this will be the biggest scandal to ever hit!

And if this happens what about the election?

 

 

The Counter Coup of Hillary Clinton

Not so fast Hillary!  We are coming to get you.

Information Overload

Have you ever experienced little dots flashing before your eyes? I always chalk it up to being tired and stressed.

Lately, I’m feeling so stressed trying to keep up with all the information and all the happenings in the news. I feel like  years have passed since the 2016 election process started.

Has it been 10 years this has been going on? That’s how it feels to me.

Ever since Obama took office it’s been one thing after another; a new regulation; a new Executive Order no matter how unconstitutional it is; one injustice after another; bringing in so many refugees without vetting; the failed economic policies; his unjustified wars; his war against us.

Elites, globalists, Agenda 21, the UN, Establishment politicians, never Trumpers, BLM, Shooting cops, anarchy. What more could one ask for in information overload? Far too much going on all at once. I think it’s called “deliberate chaos” to keep us off-balance.

Then the election process starts and new stories, new lies, Wikileaks dumps, the MSM bias and their lies, the polls, electoral maps, Hillary scandals, Trump’s faux pas.

My brain feels like it exploded at some point by so much to take in from these information overloads, that my brain matter is now splashed up against the walls like some horror scene.

I can’t keep up any longer on all the articles to read. At some point my brain shuts down and I can no longer take anything else in. My psyche screams “Enough”!

What used to be fun for me writing on my blog, now feels like a chore from hell. I try to find something that nobody else has on their blog. But that isn’t always easy to do. Search for more stories, different ones. Vetting the veracity of the stories.

I find myself spending hours upon hours on the Internet when I’ve got personal things to take care of and chores to do that I’ve let go because by the time I’m finished reading and writing for hours, I am simply drained of energy. My body feels sluggish and I drag myself around trying to complete some chores, half done until I return again to finish them up. It’s erratic.

This is an important time in our history. This election means everything to do with what path are we going to take. Are we going to save our country and ourselves or are we going to turn down the black brick road to hell with Hillary Clinton. Everyone, including myself is consumed with it. So much is at stake.

I’m in a sleep deprivation mode now. I sleep in shifts of all kinds of different hours. I can’t seem to make up my sleep deprivation. My sleeping habits are about as nuts as anybody I’ve ever known. I know it’s due to the upcoming election. I need to put this in God’s Hands because what control do I or anyone else really have. We can vote. Some one else who is illegal, dead people and foreigners vote cancelling our votes out.

What will become of us if Hillary wins? What is the next step and is it inevitable?

“The time is near at hand which must determine whether Americans are to be free men or slaves.”
