Let’s get some good legislation passed before your next step!”

Paul Ryan to Push DACA Amnesty for Millions of Illegal Aliens Before Leaving Congress
PAUL RYAN…PERSONAL PROPERTY OF THE KOCH BROTHERS

Kevin McCarthy, Steve Scalise Top The List To Replace Paul Ryan
McCARTHY IS THE MAJORITY WHIP. HE’S PART OF THE SWAMP AND AS BIG A RINO AS RYAN.
House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy of Calif., appears to be the odds-on favorite to replace House Speaker Paul Ryan, who said he would hold onto his title until he retires in January.
The other most likely candidate, Majority Whip Steve Scalise, R-La., has said he’s interested but only if McCarthy declines.

Dem Lawmaker Calls On Trump To Resign: “It Will Get Worse”

Betsy DeVos Tells Striking Teachers to Stop Being so Selfish
Teachers in Oklahoma have not showed up to class in nine days. Republican Gov. Mary Fallin approved pay raises in the tune of $6,100, but educators say it does not meet their demands. They also weren’t too happy that she likened their protest to “a teenager wanting a better car.” The teachers are on the march in defiance of school funding cuts and in support of pay raises of $10,000 over the next three years.

THIS MAY BE PART OF THE FUNDING PROBLEM:

Comey Admits He Hid That Dems Funded Steele Dossier From Trump – ‘Wasn’t Necessary For My Goal’

“Did you tell him the Steele dossier had been financed by his political opponents?” Stephanopoulos asked the former FBI director in an interview set to air on Sunday night.
“No, I don’t even think I used the words ‘Steele Dossier,’” Comey responded. “I just talked about additional material.”

New Yorker’ Calls Chick-Fil-A ‘Creepy,’ ‘Pervasive’ for Being Christian
Angered, no doubt, by the “ersatz homespun ambiance of a megachurch,” Piepenbring accused the restaurant of having an ulterior motive: proselytism and “glorifying God.” Rather than just understanding that the free market exists and that there is in fact a niche for enthusiastic Christians who want to sell chicken sandwiches, the writer took the same, stale path that the rest of the media has been parroting since 2012: Chick-Fil-A is “anti-LGBTQ” and full of “bigotry.”

Senator who called for Trump’s assassination demands slave reparations…counts herself among the beneficiaries
When you get down to the nitty-gritty of the progressive left’s “critical race theory,” which now drives race relations in the United States, reparations is the coveted goal to resolve all grievances.
Cue Missouri state Sen. Maria Chappelle-Nadal, the Trump-hating Democrat, who is calling for reparations for former slaves, according to The Kansas City Star.
Well, considering there are no former slaves alive today, the default payees would be current relations to the slaves — which conveniently includes the senator, according to her testimony.

Stuff Nobody Will See

Late posting today. DW’s check came, had overdue bills to pay, had to get snow tires taken off and highway tires put back on. One was bad and the other one is wearing, so I had to buy another tire. Now I have to have my mechanic check for front end issues. Hopefully just an alignment, but I doubt it. Nothing ever comes easy for me. Then had to get groceries. Money sure don’t last long.

April Ryan Asks Sarah Sanders If Trump Has ‘Thought About Stepping Down’

“With all of this turmoil, particularly last week, has the president at any time thought about stepping down before or now?” Ryan asked, as the press asked repeatedly about President Trump’s anger at the FBI raiding his personal attorney Michael Cohen’s office.

“No, and I think that’s an absolutely ridiculous question,” Sanders replied, calling on another reporter.

Ryan shouted over Sanders that “it’s not a ridiculous question,” before Sanders was able to move on.

She was on all the morning talk shows today and they treated her like royalty.

Fired up donors help Democrats hit early fundraising records

Anti-Trump donors are opening their checkbooks wide this year, helping Democratic candidates set early fundraising records as they hope to send a message in November’s elections.

Democrats running in Senate races across the country have been eager to share their latest fundraising totals with the political universe as they seek to generate a sense of momentum ahead of the midterm elections.

“I think the most important thing that these numbers say is that the Democratic base is very fired up,” said Jennifer Duffy, of the Cook Political Report, a non-partisan campaign tracker.

Paul Ryan won’t seek re-election
I CAN PROMISE YOU THIS SEAT WILL FLIP DEMOCRAT. HE ONLY HELD OFFICE BECAUSE EVERYBODY IN JANESVILLE KNOWS HIM.

House Speaker Paul Ryan is not seeking re-election and will retire from Congress after this year, the Wisconsin Republican announced Wednesday.

“You realize something when you take this job,” Ryan told reporters on Capitol Hill on Wednesday morning. “It’s a big job with a lot riding on you … but you also know this is not a job that does not last forever. … You realize you hold the office for just a small part of our history. So you better make the most of it.”

Retirement Avalanche Continues: Another House Republican Announces He’s Finished

IT SEEMS LIKE THE REPUBLICANS WANT THE DEMOCRATS TO GET THE MAJORITY. SOME OF THOSE LEFT WILL GO ALONG WITH IMPEACHING THE PRESIDENT… OVER NOTHING.

Rep. Dennis Ross, R-Lakeland, told his staff this morning he is retiring.

“Eight years takes its time on you. … There’s got to be an exit strategy at some point,” Ross said in an interview, noting he planned on serving 10 years, or five terms.

He dismissed the suggestion that his retirement had anything to do with a possible Democratic wave, though the open seat will now become a target, while setting off a scramble among Republican hopefuls.

NYT Hot Take: If It’s A Witch Hunt, Why Does Trump Care About Attorney-Client Privilege?
Push to Politicize Impeachment May Backfire for Democrats in Midterms
THIS WILL ONLY HAPPEN IF REPUBLICAN VOTERS REALIZE WHAT WE’RE UP AGAINST. DEMOCRATS WILL STOP AT NOTHING TO DESTROY THE PRESIDENT.

The push by a number of prominent Democrats to completely politicize the impeachment process could backfire for them in the midterms, David Axelrod, the political adviser who helped elect Barack Obama to the Presidency in 2008, said on Sunday.

Far left billionaire Tom Steyer, who has dedicated $30 million to electing a Democratic majority in the House of Representatives for the express purpose of impeaching President Trump, thinks virtually any action taken by the President is an impeachable offense.

Jeff Flake: “Only Constitutional Remedy” For Trump Firing Mueller is Impeachment
This punk is leaving in January. Until then he intends to be a major pain in the ass.
If the Democrats get Congress back, the first item of business will be impeachment. That’s no secret. They’d have to rush to the Senate before this jerk leaves office for a chance to actually remove him. There’s virtually no chance of that.
Flake, who is not seeking re-election in 2018 but has flirted with a 2020 run for president, joins at least one other high-profile Republican who has brought up the prospect of impeachment should Trump fire Mueller.
“Probably so, if he did it without cause, yeah,” Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., told radio host Hugh Hewitt when asked if firing Mueller would be an impeachable offense.

No, Hillary Clinton: It’s the Red States That Are Dynamic
THIS IS AN EXCELLENT PIECE CO-WRITTEN BY STEPHEN MOORE AND ART LAFFER
While giving a speech in Mumbai, India, Clinton boasted that she “won the places that represent two-thirds of America’s gross domestic product.” She went on: “So I won the places that are optimistic, diverse, dynamic, moving forward.”
The outpouring of residents from blue to red states almost has been one of the biggest demographic stories in American history, with a thousand people making the move every day on average. If you go to states such as Arizona, Florida, Tennessee and Texas these days, you’ll see many blue-state license plates.

Holder group will fight citizenship question on census
HOW DARE THEY ASK IF CITIZENS ARE CITIZENS!
A Democratic group headed by former U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder will go to court over a decision by the Commerce Department to include a question about citizenship on the 2020 census.
“We will litigate to stop the Administration from moving forward with this irresponsible decision,” Holder said. “The addition of a citizenship question to the census questionnaire is a direct attack on our representative democracy.”

Calif. sheriff revolts against Sanctuary State law with bold new move
As of Monday, the Orange County Sheriff’s Department’s online inmate database includes the date and time of a prisoner’s release, a change that agency officials say will improve communication with federal law enforcement partners.
While the database will include release dates for all inmates, not just illegal immigrants, the newly public information is aimed at helping Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) take removable criminal aliens into custody after they serve local jail time.

Gohmert: Massive Omnibus Bill Could Cost Republicans the Majority

IF THE VOTERS HAND CONGRESS OVER TO THE DEMOCRATS TO TEACH THE REPUBLICANS A LESSON IT’S DEAD BANG CERTAIN THAT THE DEMS WILL TRY TO UNDO EVERYTHING TRUMP HAS ACCOMPLISHED.
“I’m afraid this could end up costing us the majority, in which case you will have total new leadership in the House,” Gohmert said of the budget signed by Trump last Friday. “I don’t know, the Senate likes to hang onto their bad leadership no matter what happens, but it would probably mean new leadership there.”

This Budget Was Designed to End the Trump Presidency
“Well, I’m telling you, it’s the deep state, I don’t care where you go, it’s the establishment trying to get rid of Donald Trump any which way they can.
You know what? There isn’t gonna be a wall and there isn’t gonna be anything serious on immigration and so having Trump be president is meaningless.”
That’s what this budget is designed to make you think, but after it’s signed into law. It’s 2,200 pages. There is no way anybody could have read all of it and digested it in the limited time they had before the vote.

The Nuclear Option — Collapsing News Network: CNN, MSM Hope Raunchy Sex Scandal Ends Trump

ALL DURING THE CLINTON YEARS WE WERE TOLD ‘IT WAS ONLY SEX’; IT WAS A PRIVATE MATTER; HE CAN GET ORAL SEX FROM A 22-YEAR-OLD AND STILL SCREW THE COUNTRY.
Frustrated, exhausted and completely out of ideas, the Grand Cyclops of the Washington Swamp has finally resorted to the only thing that has resulted in a presidential impeachment since Reconstruction: a raunchy sex scandal.
So they dredge up old stories from President Trump’s colorful past as a tabloid titan, real-estate showman and reality-TV star. Old stories — stories that keep evolving and remain unverified — about alleged affairs from long before he ever got into politics.

PAUL RYAN Promises Democrats to Pass Amnesty – Will Get to It Next

Formerly bankrupt California city tests ‘universal’ income for residents
The proposed project is being funded by a private grant
WHAT COULD POSSIBLY GO WRONG?
The plan, spearheaded by Stockton’s 27-year-old mayor, Michael Tubbs, will likely begin sometime in August 2018 and involve at least 100 people of varying income levels getting $500 a month for three years.
Ever since it declared bankruptcy in 2012, Stockton has been in recovery-mode, and Tubbs sees basic income — a growing topic of discussion around the world over the past couple years — as one way to rehabilitate the city.
In a basic income system, participants get a fixed amount of money that they can use however they want.

Ignoring Human Rights Abuses, Mainstream Media Gush Over North Korea’s ‘Charm’
In a bizarre display of willful blindness, U.S. liberal media have lavished praise on North Korea’s dictatorship during the first days of the Winter Olympics, gushing over its “charm offensive” and comparing it favorably to the Trump administration.
In an article Sunday titled “Kim Jong-un’s Sister Turns On the Charm, Taking Pence’s Spotlight,” the New York Times was unable to contain its admiration for the totalitarian state, saying that North Korean leader, Kim Jong-un, stole the show at the Winter Olympics by sending his sister, Kim Yo-jong.

Trump wants a military parade and liberals are hysterical (just more proof it’s the right thing to do)

It’s a great idea, and is a perfect event symbolizing the fact that America is getting back on her feet after eight years of a commander-in-chief who reveled in complaining about America and decimating our military.The hysteria the proposed parade has provoked among Democrats and leftists provides even more proof that it’s the right thing to do.

Liberal Hack to Secretary Mattis: Why Divert Energy, Time, Financial Resources for a Military Parade?

Donald Trump was credited with saving the 50th Anniversary of the NY Veterans Day Parade
UPI reported in 1995 how Trump was credited with ‘saving’ the New York Veterans Day Parade. The parade that year was marking the fiftieth anniversary of the end of World War II.
Police estimated 500,000 people attended the largest military parade ever held in New York. Organizers, who placed the turnout at closer to a million, said the parade would not have been a success if it hadn’t been for real estate developer Donald Trump, who contributed $200,000 and raised another $300,000.
Last week the Trump White House announced they would ask the military to plan a great military parade in Washington DC.
Democrats were disgusted.
Hallie Jackson: To follow up on Catherine’s question, You just laid out the argument to fulling funding the military, why you think every dollar counts. So why divert time, energy, financial resources to the planning of a parade as the president has asked?

I-TEAM: Inmates claim Corrine Brown getting special treatment
Current, former workers at Coleman facility say that’s not true
Security officials inside the minimum-security prison camp that is part of the Coleman Federal Correctional Complex in Central Florida — where the 71-year-old former Democratic congresswoman reported to Jan. 29 — said she’s treated like everyone else.
But according to inmates, Brown has been getting everything from massages to being able to wear wigs.
“New mattress, kissing up all day and all night by both staff and residents … and she got to keep a bunch of wigs,” one inmate wrote.
The letter goes on to say, “She had to have a brand new mattress. She has girls that are in prison at her beck and call. She says they are on her payroll. Where we got one chicken pattie for lunch she gets 2. The officers allows her to have massages every night.”
That inmate also claims that Brown is allowed to wear “brand new high-top leather sneakers” that aren’t even sold in the prison commissary.

Jeanne Ives Targets Illinois ‘Sanctuary State’ Law in Republican Primary

Illinois State Representative Jeanne Ives (R-Wheaton) has launched a biting new ad against incumbent Republican Bruce Rauner that brings the “sanctuary state” issue to the fore in the Republican primary.
In 2017, Rauner signed a law that essentially made Illinois a sanctuary state. Conservatives warned that it marked the “beginning of the end” of his administration.

California Moves To Force Public Universities To Administer Abortion Pills
The state legislature is moving on an aggressive attempt to reconfigure student health centers from places of healing to abortion franchises.
The FDA reports that such drug-induced abortions have led to cases of extreme bleeding, infection and incomplete abortions requiring a surgery, and even to the death of mothers. The drugs are especially dangerous to women who are later in pregnancy or are experiencing an ectopic pregnancy, both conditions which must be determined by an ultrasound (using equipment not usually found in a college health center.) And that is before we add in the emotional experience of waiting alone in a bathroom to see the pre-born infant pass into a toilet.

California Will Block Oil And Coal Shipments, Risks Constitutional Battle
“Given how unpopular oil development in coastal waters is in California, it is certain that the state would not approve new pipelines or allow use of existing pipelines to transport oil from new leases onshore,” coastal commissioners Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom, State Controller Betty Yee, and state Department of Finance Director Michael Cohen wrote in a letter Wednesday to the BOEM.
California officials can therefore control pipelines, transportation of materials, terminals, and refineries built in coastal areas. The federal government could pull out the U.S. Constitution’s supremacy clause to create a regulatory framework that would override California law.

These are the same people who defended Bill Clinton – who actually was accused of rape and was forced to pay thousands to at least one woman he sexually abused.

Obama said that she and President Barack Obama interviewed several artists for their portraits, and that she bonded with Sherald because of all the time they spent together.

Democrats Lose Big Time As Shutdown Ends

They tried to shoehorn a big immigration amnesty into stopgap funding and paid a heavy price.

Democrats got essentially nothing in exchange for voting to re-open the government, which made the Republican triumph even sweeter. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) made an unenforceable promise to Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) to bring an immigration bill to the floor – he said merely that it was his intention to do so – if a compromise cannot be made regarding the illegals before government funding runs out again.

Never play Chicken with the Trump Train
This embarrassing game of Chicken shows that — for the first time in decades — a Republican won the Narrative War.
Republicans never win the Narrative War.
And that’s why Schumer and the Dems were so certain they’d succeed at hanging this shutdown around Donald Trump’s neck.
But they failed miserably.
No. Trump went much further than that. He successfully labeled this shutdown as Democrats choosing illegal aliens over American citizens.
And because of that, losing this game of Chicken isn’t just a minor setback for Chuck Schumer and the Democrats.
They went all-in for non-citizens over Americans. And now, no matter what they do, Trump has succeeded in labeling them the Party of Illegals.

We Are Outraged:’ Illegal Alien Activists Turn on Democrats After Amnesty-or-Shutdown Fail
In a protest outside of the U.S Capitol, open borders advocates and illegal alien activists slammed Democrats after they originally shut down the federal government to push amnesty for illegal aliens, but then caved to President Trump and voted to reopen the government without an amnesty attached to the funding bill.
Illegal aliens shielded from deportation by the President Obama-created Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program with the open borders group “United We Dream,” which is funded by globalist billionaire George Soros, said they were entitled to an immediate amnesty before the federal government was reopened.

Polling also showed a majority back White House priorities on ending the Diversity Visa Lottery Program, eliminating chain migration and building a border wall.

CNN Asks Wasserman Schultz What Was The Point Of The Shutdown — Her Answer Is Stunning
When Schultz was asked point-blank what the point of the government shutdown was her response left Baldwin’s jaw on the floor. “What one thing did [Schumer] get, you know, from Republicans, to justify shutting down the government in the first place?” Baldwin asked.
DWS replied: “The one thing, I would say, that [Schumer] did get is the potential for momentum.”

[CtH; What on Earth does “potential for momentum” mean?]

Bits and Pieces

2017 Tax reform toon by Branco

ECONOMY: The Bureau of Labor Statistics released its newest jobs report on Friday, and the data clearly show, under the pro-business policies implemented by the Trump administration, low-income and working-class families are enjoying significant economic gains not experienced in nearly 20 years.

TAX OVERHAUL: Wal-Mart, the nation’s largest private employer, announced today that it will raise its starting hourly wage, give bonuses to all eligible full and part-time associates, and expand its parental leave policyall in response to last month’s tax overhaul.

2020 ELECTIONS: The Senate map is really tough for Democrats, with 26 Democratic seats in play next year (including a newly opened seat in Minnesota after Al Franken announced his intention to retire) as compared to just eight Republican ones. Moreover, five of the Democratic-held seats — the ones in West Virginia, North Dakota, Montana, Missouri and Indiana — are in states that President Trump won by 18 percentage points or more.

PRO-LIFE: Speaker Paul Ryan will headline the 45th March for Life, which is taking place on January 19th.  Paul Ryan has spoken at the annual event before, but this will be his first time coming as Speaker of the House.

RUSSIARUSSIARUSSIA: The salacious and FAKE anti-Trump dossier that Hillary paid for was used to gain approval from a secret court to monitor members of Trump’s team. There will be more information in the coming week.

RAAACISM: Clarence Thomas talks about being a black conservative in modern society.  He says faith gives him “the strength to do what I have to do every day, to assert the independence, to be willing to take the beatings, the criticism, the unfairness.” When he attends daily mass, he says, it helps him do his “job, a secular job, in the right way and for the right reasons.” It reminds him that his work has nothing to do with what is said about him, but is rather about doing what he took an oath to do.

Anti-Trump Prince Alwaleed – a BIG Clinton DONOR – is Jailed in Corruption Sweep in Saudi Arabia

In December 2015 Saudi Prince Alwaleed bin Talal slammed Donald Trump for proposing a ban on Muslim immigrants in the US until the government could alleviate security concerns.
Prince Alwaleed bin Talal is a top Clinton Foundation donor.

Campus Watch reported:   Some are upset that the Clinton Foundation accepted donations from Middle Eastern countries with terrible records on women’s rights. In “Hillary Clinton Faces Test of Record as Women’s Advocate,” the New York Times writes:

Saudi Arabia has been a particularly generous benefactor to the Clinton Foundation, giving at least $10 million since 2001, according to foundation disclosures. At least $1 million more was donated by Friends of Saudi Arabia, co-founded by a Saudi Prince.

On Sunday Prince Alaweed was arrested in a corruption sweep.

Sen. Rand Paul Assaulted by Next-door Neighbor

“Paul told troopers that his neighbor came onto his property and tackled him from behind, forcing him to the ground and causing pain.”
THE SENATOR WAS ASSAULTED WHILE MOWING HIS LAWN. CAN YOU IMAGINE ANY DEMOCRAT ACTUALLY DOING YARD WORK? MOST OF THEM HAVE ILLEGALS DOING THEIR LANDSCAPING.

“Senator Paul was blindsided and the victim of an assault. The assailant was arrested and it is now a matter for the police,” says Kelsey Cooper, State Communications Director for Office of U.S. Senator Rand Paul (R-KY).

[CtH: I read on Facebook that Rand suffered serious rib fractures, not just cracked, but actually broken.]

Warren County Regional Jail has the spelling listed as Rene Albert Bousher.

Alabama Fan Puts Cigarette In Face Of Cop, Gets Dragged Out
One Alabama fan decided to try and press her luck Saturday night at Bryant-Denny stadium by enjoying a smoke break from her seat when a police officer asked her to put it out.

Sarcastically, she puts the cigarette up to the officer’s face, almost as if she was offering him a drag.

The officer was not amused, as he brought out the handcuffs immediately.

SHE WAS TAKEN DOWN HARD. LUCKILY SHE’S WHITE — OTHERWISE THE OFFICERS WOULD BE FORCED TO UNDERGO SENSITIVITY TRAINING.

Trump greets Japanese emperor with a handshake and nod – but no bow
U.S. President Donald Trump greeted Japanese Emperor Akihito and Empress Michiko on Monday with a genteel handshake and nod, but no bow, avoiding the pitfall of U.S. President Barack Obama who was criticized at home for his deep bow to the monarch.
Hillary Clinton shook hands and air-kissed the empress on both cheeks, then took her hand as they entered the palace when she met the royal pair as secretary of state in 2011, a month or so after the triple disasters of an earthquake, tsunami and nuclear meltdown hit northeastern Japan in March of that year.

Democrats’ civil war isn’t bringing them closer to understanding why they lost
Much of the base wants to go “full Bernie,” and embrace free college and national health insurance. Yet this ignores the fact that Bernie Sanders did so well in the primaries mainly because Clinton was the same horrible candidate she’s always been.

This wing of the party thinks President Barack Obama was too centrist. Hmm: Is that why the party lost 14 governorships plus nine Senate and 60-plus House seats on his watch?

Shutdown threat growing over immigration fight
Democrats believe they have leverage to demand an immigration deal going into the end-of-year negotiations because GOP leadership will likely need their votes to keep the government open.

They are signaling, despite the decision from the president, that they will keep DACA in the December talks until Republicans show they can pass a spending bill on their own.
“Unless Republicans can keep the government open without Democratic votes, this is not their decision to make. I have yet to see any evidence that they will be able to do that,” said Rep. Joseph Crowley (D-N.Y.), the chairman of the House Democratic Caucus.

Anthony Weiner to begin prison sentence for sexting conviction
MEANWHILE BOWE BERGDAHL IS HAVING A BEER AT THE BOWLING ALLEY.

Former Rep. Anthony Weiner, D-N.Y., will begin his 21 month prison sentence on Monday after being found guilty of sexting a 15-year-old girl.  Weiner, 53, was sentenced in September after court papers showed that he repeatedly encouraged an underage girl to undress and fondle herself over Skype, The Daily News reported.

Speaker Ryan Invites a Social Doctrine Conversation

By George Weigel.

CNN is not the customary locale-of-choice for a catechesis on Catholic social doctrine. But that’s what Paul Ryan, Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives, offered viewers of a CNN national town hall meeting on the evening of August 21.

Challenged with a semi-“Gotcha!” question by Sinsinawa Dominican Sister Erica Jordan, who not-so-subtly suggested that Ryan’s approach to healthcare reform, tax reform, and welfare reform was in conflict with the Church’s social teaching, the very Catholic Speaker replied that he completely agreed with Sister Erica that God is “always on the side of the poor and dispossessed”; the real question was, how do public officials, who are not God, create public policies that empower the poor and dispossessed to be not-poor and not-dispossessed?

Congressman Ryan then laid out an approach to alleviating poverty and empowering the poor that seemed to me entirely congruent with the core Catholic social ethical principles of subsidiarity and solidarity. Solidarity with the poor is a moral imperative, Ryan agreed, but solidarity should not be measured by inputs—How many federal dollars go into anti-poverty programs?—but by outcomes: Are poor people who can live independent and fruitful lives being helped by our welfare dollars to develop the skills and habits that will enable them to be self-reliant, constructive citizens? The moral obligation of solidarity is not met by programs that perpetuate welfare dependency.

Speaker Ryan is a longstanding advocate of decentralizing and (as he puts it) “customizing” social welfare programs. That means abandoning one-size-fits-all attempts to address poverty and looking to the states, where a lot of the creativity in American government resides these days, for approaches that actually empower the poor, because they treat poor people as men and women with potential to be unleashed, not simply as clients to be maintained. Proposals to decentralize social welfare programs and give the states the funds necessary to conduct all sorts of customized efforts to empower the poor—crafted so that each “fits” the vast array of distinct circumstances we find in impoverished America—strike me as a sensible application of the social doctrine’s principle of subsidiarity. That principle, first articulated by Pope Pius XI in 1931, teaches us to leave decision-making at the lowest possible level in society, closest to those most directly affected by the policy in question. Paul Ryan thinks Washington doesn’t have to decide everything; Pius XI would have agreed.

The fact that poverty remains a serious problem in the United States after the federal government has spent $22 trillion dollars on social welfare programs over the past fifty years should have taught us all something about the complex problems of empowering the poor. No one with any sense or experience imagines that he or she has the silver-bullet answer to poverty in all its social, cultural, economic, and political dimensions; I know my friend Speaker Ryan doesn’t think he does.

But unlike those who insist on measuring an official’s or a party’s commitment to the poor by inputs rather than outcomes (an approach that tends to instrumentalize the poor and render social welfare policy a cash transaction rather than a human encounter), Paul Ryan and reform conservatives like him are willing to face the fact that there is no direct correlation between magnitude-of-dollar-inputs and success-of-human-outcomes when it comes to anti-poverty programs. Inner-city Catholic schools (the Church in America’s most effective social welfare program) demonstrate that time and again: They spend less than the government schools, and their students learn much more—and not just in quantifiable, standardized-testing terms.

America needs many serious conversations in this age of the demagogic tweet and the rabid talk-radio sound-bite. One of them is about the scandal of poverty amidst vast wealth and the empowerment of the poor. That conversation is not advanced when, as happened after the CNN broadcast, smug partisans attack a serious Catholic public official by suggesting that he’s deficient in both his moral commitment to the poor and his understanding of Catholic social doctrine. Paul Ryan is no more the reincarnation of Simon Legree than Sister Erica Jordan and her fellow Sinsinawa Dominicans are the reincarnation of Ingrid Bergman/Sister Mary Benedict in The Bells of St. Mary’s. Keeping that in mind would help foster the thoughtful debate that the Speaker, and the country, would welcome.

George Weigel is Distinguished Senior Fellow of Washington, D.C.’s Ethics and Public Policy Center, where he holds the William E. Simon Chair in Catholic Studies.

Politics Makes Strange Bedfellows

Donald Trump is a hard man to get a feeling for. A successful businessman who got into politics and went through the primaries like a cyclone in a wheat field. Stunning the world, he defeated someone who had been all but preordained as the next president and turned Capitol Hill on its ear. He has been universally opposed by the establishment of both parties. In spite of the media’s best efforts to destroy the only man with the nerve to stand up to them, he still remains popular with those who voted for him.
He ran on repealing Obamacare and building the border wall. His own party betrayed him on health care and it looks like he gave a big FU to his own party and has worked a deal with the Democrats just to get something done. The modern definition of “bipartisanship” is, was, and always will be the republicans abandoning everything they believe in and give the liberals everything they want. There are conflicting reports about a deal he struck with the left and it is unclear exactly what his motives are.

Pelosi And Schumer: Trump Agreed To ‘Enshrine DACA Protections Into Law’ Without Wall

“We had a very productive meeting at the White House with the President. The discussion focused on DACA. We agreed to enshrine the protections of DACA into law quickly, and to work out a package of border security, excluding the wall, that’s acceptable to both sides
White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders disputed the Democratic leaders’ claims saying Trump did not agree to excluding the wall from any DACA fix.

Report: Trump Caves on DACA, Wants ‘Quick’ Amnesty for 800K Illegal Aliens

In a meeting with establishment politicians from the Problem Solvers Caucus and the Blue Dog Coalition, President Trump signaled a full-fledged cave on the issue of giving amnesty to nearly 800,000 illegal aliens currently protected by an Obama-created executive immigration program.
I would reserve thought on this as this is Democratic statement and nothing is written out. And there was no prior indication that the wall would ever be a part of this deal. Paul Ryan said there would be funding for the wall apart from this. So we’ll have to see how it all shakes out formally.

Outrageous Selling-Out of the Base: Immigration Patriots Blast Trump Staffer Marc Short for Trading DACA Amnesty for Tax Cuts
As Breitbart News reported, Trump’s congressional relations aide Marc Short told reporters that he is not asking Democrats to exchange amnesty for the hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens covered by the Obama-created Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program for the legal immigration-cutting RAISE Act, E-Verify, or even border wall funding.
Instead, Short – who previously worked in the Republican establishment and headed an organization bankrolled by the pro-mass immigration billionaire Koch brothers – tied the massive amnesty deal to tax cuts

Report: Dem pollsters worried that attacks on Trump not sticking
Many of the ideas party leaders have latched onto in an attempt to appeal to their lost voters — free college tuition, raising the minimum wage to $15, even Medicare for all — test poorly among voters outside the base. The people in these polls and focus groups tend to see those proposals as empty promises, at best.
Victor Davis Hansen has a great post at National Review, Two Resistances. The basic thesis is that the Media-Dem-NeverTrump Resistance gets all the attention, but the real resistance is an uprising against elites, so much so that Trump is an acceptable antidote

Tough Love: Democratic Operatives Tear Apart the Party’s Current Strategy for 2018
The president’s response to the Charlottesville violence, the rolling back of the Deferred Action of Childhood Arrivals, Russian collusion hysteria, the slow pace of enacting his agenda—all of these things have Democrats grinning, expect that they shouldn’t. The party’s own operatives and data crunchers have run through the numbers based on focus groups, and Democrats are still heading for the electoral ditch.
In all, while Trump’s approval ratings might be in the low 40s by the time the 2018 midterms hit, it’s appallingly naïve for the Left to think a blue wave is coming based on that factor alone.

And In the Top of the News

With every passing day I become more and more repulsed by the way a once-proud nation has degenerated to the point I can hardly read a headline without some level of nausea. I had fully planned to stop posting altogether, except for posting images. The week Chrissy was sick I posted what I thought was some pretty good stuff. For days, there was no evidence that there was anybody around but myself. This site has meant an awful lot to me. I’ve made lasting friends who have been there through times thin and flush. Conversations were once lively and fun. Now it seems there’s an echo of emptiness. I will try to continue as I can, but time will tell for how long.

MO Sen. Chappelle-Nadal Issues Tearful Apology to Trump and His Family After Wishing Him Dead
Missouri State Senator Maria Chappelle-Nadal hoped for the assassination of President Trump in a Facebook comment on Thursday then deleted it in a panic.

RACE HUSTLERS NEVER FEEL ANY REMORSE FOR THEIR BIGOTRY. WHAT THEY FEEL IS FEAR THAT IT MAY COST THEM POLITICAL POWER AND THE ILLICIT CASH IT INVOLVES.
Amid calls for her resignation, a Democratic state senator in Missouri on Sunday said she made a mistake for posting on Facebook Thursday that she hopes President Donald Trump is assassinated.
Chappelle-Nadal said her judge and her jury is my Lord Jesus Christ.
YEAH, GO INTO YOUR PHONY PIOUS ACT. THE RUBES IN THE MEDIA WILL EAT IT UP.

Trump and FLOTUS to Skip Kennedy Center Honors
THE LEFT WILL NEVER UNDERSTAND THAT TRUMP DOESN’T FEED OFF THE SLOBBERING ADORATION OF THESE JADED ASSHOLES LIKE OBAMA DID. HE COULDN’T CARE LESS IF THEY LIKE HIM OR NOT.
“The President and First Lady have decided not to participate in this year’s activities to allow the honorees to celebrate without any political distraction,” the statement said. “First Lady Melania Trump, along with her husband President Donald J. Trump, extend their sincerest congratulations and well wishes to all of this year’s award recipients for their many accomplishments.”
Several prominent artists have said they will not attend the event following Trump’s divisive comments in the wake of violent protests in Charlottesville, Va. over the weekend.
Dancer Carmen de Lavallade announced Thursday she would be skipping “in light of the socially divisive and morally caustic narrative that our current leadership is choosing to engage in.” Television producer Norman Lear also will not attend.
Singer Lionel Ritchie is a “maybe.” Singer Gloria Estefan said she plans to attend to convince Trump of the value of immigrants.

NYPD Officers Rally To Support Kaepernick: ‘He’s Being Railroaded For Speaking The Obvious Truth’

EVERY DAMNED ONE OF THEM SHOULD BE FIRED. POLITICS SHOULD NEVER BE A PART OF LAW ENFORCEMENT. THANKS AGAIN, OBAMA
Kaepernick protested the national anthem last season because he said he was “not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color.”[…]
The officers wore T-shirts that said “#IMWITHKAP.” Per the Associated Press, the rally consisted of “about 75 mostly minority officers” with the exception of Serpico,, who’s known for exposing police corruption and said of supporting Kaepernick, again per The Daily News:
“I am here to support anyone who has the courage to stand up against injustice and oppression anywhere in this country and the world,” said the 81-year-old former detective.
