5% cut, across the board - the nickel plan

President Trump demands a 5% budget cut from every department:

That will make a huge difference to budget deficits.

The president does have the leverage of his veto. After approving the $1.3 trillion budget plan Congress sent him in March, Trump threatened he will “never sign another bill like this again.”
Trump has previously called for deep, double-digit percentage reductions for some federal departments that were rejected by Congress. His first proposed budget last year included the complete elimination of 62 agencies, which lawmakers ignored.

REQUIRED READING: Evidence tax cuts raise revenue

Investor's Business Daily summarizes the impacts of the Trump tax cuts for this fiscal year, simply beautifully. This is not a trivial point; Democrats argued how horrible tax cuts would be for the annual deficit and the national debt.  This shows that they, once again, got it wrong.

Here's the summary, but I urge you to go read the whole article
Overall, federal revenues came in slightly higher in FY 2018 — up 0.5%.

Spending, on the other hand, was $127 billion higher in fiscal 2018. As a result, deficits for 2018 climbed $113 billion.

...What is unmistakable from the data, however, is that the Trump tax cuts are not entirely, or even mostly, responsible for the increase in the deficit. Blame for that rests squarely with spendthrifts in Congress — on both sides of the aisle — who refuse to bring federal spending under control.
Empirical evidence of the Laffer Curve are needed every time tax cuts get proposed, even though historical evidence under president Reagan and under president Kennedy should be enough.

Midterms Matter: In New Jersey's 7th District, please support Leonard Lance

In New Jersey's 7th congressional district, representative Leonard Lance appears to be trailing slightly in his race against a hardcore progressive, elitist insider liberal Democrat. New Jersey is a left-leaning state but support for corruption and out of touch radicalism should not stand.

What should stand, is this:
Called a, “leading low-tax, limited government conservative from New Jersey” by Americans for Tax Reform, Leonard Lance has consistently stood up for conservative Republican principles like defunding Obamacare, stopping President Obama’s lawless executive actions and promoting fiscal and personal responsibility.

Having been involved in running a small family law practice with his twin brother Jim, Leonard Lance understands first-hand the importance of eliminating red tape and regulations burdens on small businesses. He has been endorsed by leading business groups for championing policies that encourage economic growth, job creation and a less intrusive federal government.

As the only New Jersey Republican on the House Energy and Commerce Committee, Leonard Lance has voted to take full advantage of our Nation’s energy potential, supporting the Keystone Pipeline bill, ending the ban on oil exports and stopping the Obama Administration’s unprecedented regulatory attack on affordable and reliable electricity.
Please support Leonard Lance's efforts; volunteer, donate or at least check out his positions on his website. And by all means - vote.

Thank you.

"Democracy" in Canada in action

Faith Goldy is a staunchly conservative candidate who is being elbowed out the race for Toronto's mayor by elitist leftists and Canadian media conglomerates. I am not familiar with all of her platforms but would be open to at least hearing them.  The problem is that so many are trying to make sure that I can't.

Leftists around the world claim they love democracy but don't you dare have a different opinion than them. This is shameful and as a Canadian I would find it wholly embarrassing if it were not for the fact that we are not alone in this problem.

Fusion GPS co-founder Glenn Simpson pleads the fifth

The Fusion GPS ultra liberal opposition research firm co-founder Glenn Simpson was called in to testify and regarding election malfeasance on the part of Democrats and their operatives.  He plead the fifth amendment and did not answer questions.

Open? Honest? Hardly. Hopefully this goes somewhere further.

Ben Shapiro's take on the pending midterms

I agree completely with Ben - this is not a going to be blue wave midterm election.
