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.

Despite Major Pushback, Bernie Sanders Sticks with Felon Voting Stance

Bernie Sanders is sticking to his guns on this one, despite the immediate and harsh feedback that he has received from Americans on the issue.

Bernie Sanders, the de facto frontrunner in the current 2020 democratic field, may have exposed his own achilles heel on television earlier this week. Sanders, a democratic socialist by nature, Independent Senator officially, and a democratic Presidential candidate out of necessity, has long been on the outside looking in at mainstream politics.  Now, thanks to the pure and unadulterated insanity of the world we live in, he has risen to the left’s pile of possible presidents; his views no longer so far to the left…now that the center is moving toward him. But don’t let a desensitized democratic constituency make you believe that Bernie wouldn’t still have some bizarre, left-field ideas out there to shock us with.  Sanders himself, during a CNN town hall event this week, stated his belief that incarcerated felons should have the right to vote.  When pressed by CNN host Chris Cuomo, who asked if the Boston Marathon Bomber should be allowed to vote, Bernie upheld his belief to a stunned crowd. The media fallout was almost immediate, and has been continuing ever since. Bernie Sanders, for his part, is shrugging this aside and now tripling-down on his belief at a “She The People” event. “And I was told this was a terrible idea despite the fact that in Canada and in countries all over the world — why did I say that?” Sanders said. “I said that because the right to vote is essential. If you are a citizen, you have the right to vote.” Then Sanders compared that right to voting rights connection to race and gender. “And that is a right we must protect because we know the history of this country. We know that women didn’t have the right to vote,” Sanders said. “We know that African Americans didn’t have the rights…

CONFIRMED: Beto Said He Did Not Flee 1998 DWI, Officers At the Scene Say He’s Lying

BUSTED!

It was reported during his failed Senate run last year that former Rep. Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke (TX) fled the scene of a DWI over two decades ago. Beto has denied this happened. However, officers at the scene of the crime say Beto did, in fact, attempt to flee. Busted. From Texas Tribune: The former police officer who arrested Beto O’Rourke for driving drunk in 1998, along with the sergeant who signed the incident report, both say they believe now what they reported at the time: that O’Rourke tried to leave the scene of the wreck he caused. O’Rourke admits he was intoxicated and says there is no justification for his actions, but he has denied that he tried to flee. […] Neither the investigating officer, Richard Carrera, nor his former supervisor, Gary Hargrove, specifically recalls the events of that night more than 20 years ago. But both of the former Anthony Police Department officers told The Texas Tribune they have no doubt the report they compiled and signed is accurate. A Beto spokesman noted, “Beto’s DWI is something he has long publicly and openly addressed over the last 20 years at town halls, on the debate stage, during interviews and in Op-Eds, calling it a serious mistake for which there is no excuse. This has been widely and repeatedly reported on.” LOOK (zoom in): Beto O’Rourke, truth teller? Not so much. In that respect, he actually fits in quite swimmingly with the other 2,385 Democrat presidential candidates. Check this out… From Daily Wire: Democratic presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke made five false statements in an attack on President Donald Trump this week when he was confronted over why he compared the president to the Third Reich. O’Rourke noted, “I compared the rhetoric that the president has employed to the rhetoric…
