President Trump to Save American Taxpayers Even MORE Money, Liberals Will Strongly Oppose This Move

Will this also break the left-wing hold and power over the machinery of the regulatory state?

Published

Liberals are furious that President Donald Trump is planning to move the jobs of hundreds of federal employees out of Washington D.C.

Trump says that the move will save billions in tax dollars, but liberals just think that he is looking for ways to break the left-wing hold on their power over the machinery of the regulatory state.

According to Daily Caller:

Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue announced Thursday that the Economic Research Service (ERS) and the National Institute of Food and Agriculture (NIFA) will be fully moved out of the nation’s capital by 2020, according to the USDA. A location hasn’t been picked yet.

“It’s been our goal to make USDA the most effective, efficient, and customer-focused department in the entire federal government,” Perdue said in a statement. “In our Administration, we have looked critically at the way we do business, with the ultimate goal of ensuring the best service possible for our customers, and for the taxpayers of the United States.”

“In some cases, this has meant realigning some of our offices and functions, or even relocating them, in order to make more logical sense or provide more streamlined and efficient services,” Perdue said.

As part of the reorganization, Perdue is also moving the Economic Research Service (ERS) out from under the USDA’s Research, Education, and Economics branch. The ERS will be placed back in the Office of the Chief Economist under the authority of the Office of the Secretary.

By some reports up to 700 USDA employees could end up leaving the D.C. environs.

This is all good, especially if it really will save the billions of dollars that will likely be saved.

“None of this reflects on the jobs being done by our ERS or NIFA employees,” Perdue said. “These changes are more steps down the path to better service to our customers, and will help us fulfill our informal motto to ‘Do right and feed everyone.'”

Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke also plans to move the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) out of D.C.

This is all good stuff. In fact, even if the move doesn’t save money, taking these workers out of D.C. can only be a good thing.

So, let’s line up behind the president on this. Let’s get this thing done.

Kellyanne Conway Takes Aim At AOC, Destroys Her And ‘The Squad’ With Just One Line

Epic burn!

Published

Regardless of what you think about Counselor to the President Kellyanne Conway, the truth of the matter is, she fits his administration like a glove, mostly because she’s not afraid to take her own off and get gritty with those who oppose this administration. A good case in point is when Conway made a recent appearance on Fox News where she totally annihilated Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and her companions in the “Squad” with just one line. This is so, so good. via The Daily Wire: On Tuesday, appearing on Fox News, Counselor to the President Kellyanne Conway launched a fiery attack on the four female Democratic legislators who have been dubbed the “squad,” Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Ilhan Omar (D-MN) Rashida Tlaib (D-MA) and Ayanna Pressley (D-MA), pointing out that they had no moral high ground to stand on criticizing the Trump administration when they themselves were the only four Democrats who voted against a humanitarian aid bill for the southern border. Conway snapped, “These four people in the so-called “squad” that have done squat in Congress other than pose on magazine covers and go on late-night comedy shows and cause trouble in their own caucus were under fire a couple short days ago by senior Democrats.” Conway also denounced people who had disrespected the American flag, the military, and also ripped the press for their fawning treatment of the four women. Asked about President Trump’s tweets that seemingly targeted the four women and the Democrats who reacted with outrage, Conway responded: The Democratic response is very predictable; you hardly need to cover it. It’s always racism, sexism, xenophobia, and it’s getting tired. These four people in the so-called “Squad” that have done squat in Congress other than pose on magazine covers and go on late-night comedy shows and cause…

NYPD Officer Involved In Death Of Eric Garner Learns His Fate

This is not going to sit well with liberals.

Published

on

The New York City police officer who was involved with the July 17, 2014 death of Eric Garner has learned his fate, and it’s probably going to send the radical left into absolute hysterics. The Department of Justice will not bring charges against Officer Daniel Pantaleo. Here are the details from TheBlaze: The Black Lives Matter movement called for justice in Garner’s death, saying that the use of a choke hold was a disproportionate response to the alleged illegal sale of cigarettes. The police union has contested that what Pantaleo did was a “seat-belt hold” not a choke hold, a crucial difference since the NYPD prohibits the use of choke holds by officers. A grand jury had already decided not to indict Pantaleo. New York City paid Garner’s family a $5.9 million settlement in 2015. The Department of Justice did not make any decision in this case. Rather, it plans to let the time expire on the five-year window that it had to bring charges against Pantaleo before the statute of limitations protects him from prosecution. Those five years are up on Wednesday. The only remaining punishment that Pantaleo could face at this point comes from the NYPD itself, which is still conducting a disciplinary proceeding. This is news that most definitely is going to spark some sort of protesting, hopefully without violence, as we all know how deeply divided the country is right now along racial lines. Whether or not this officer is actually responsible for Garner’s death is something we may not ever really know, despite the video evidence that exists. Not everything is so black and white. Let’s hope cooler heads prevail and people are able and willing to have civil discussions on the topic.
