Just curious, would Bezos have paid different taxes without Trumps tax cuts, or had a different accountant.
Bollocks to Bullock; he has no chance. A robust economy would come crashing down if minimum wage was raised to $15 per hour and he and the other Dems know it; they want that so they could resort to their trite old arguments about oppressive government and the need for more ‘give away’ programs.
Senator Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) opted to use a question on climate change to smear President Donald Trump as “dangerous,” “sexist,” and “racist.”

President Donald Trump warned Democrats that if they don’t help him pass new immigration laws, they might be watching a new Republican majority pass them after the 2020 election.
During an address at the White […]
The opposition to Jared’s plan is bipartisan. When Senators Blumenthal and Graham are both saying it is DOA, it’s DOA in 2019 AND 2021. When you don’t have the business community support of the plan, its DOA. When Silicon Valley is opposed to the plan Jared targeted for immigrants FOR THEM, it’s DOA. It was presented to only R’s yesterday and they panned it. If Jared and Stephen were actually looking for Democrat support it would have addressed DACA. It does not.
Phyllis, I believe part of the problem is that the business community and silicon valley have had too much influence on how our immigration policies have been created and implemented. They put their needs/wants before the good of the country. They want cheap labor regardless of its impact. As a result, immigrants replace Americans and wages tend lower. I believe immigration and DACA are two separate issues even if they are linked. Maybe President Trump will use DACA as a bargaining chip.
“immigrants replace Americans and wages tend lower”
Mike is confused. This BS trope is NOT how it works.
Farmers, for example, have tried raising wages and benefits to entice American born people to work in the fields when immigration policies make it impossible to find enough to bring in their crops. THIS ISN’T ENOUGH AND IT DOESN’T WORK! The farmers STILL can’t get enough workers to do this unpleasant work.
Corporations want cheap labor and Americans want cheap prices. American wages tend lower because we have watched an attack on union labor for decades. We have SCOTUS Justices with pro-corporate -anti-labor beliefs. First they tell you corporations are sending your jobs out of the country–then the immigrants are coming here to take your jobs. They usually omit the effects of automation and the internet.
The small town of Deming, NM (Pop. 15,000) has been tasked with taking care of 170 Invaders dumped on them by CBP. The ranchers next door in Hidalgo County have pleaded for help to fend off the Invaders with no attention being paid to the border problem by their newly elected female Hispanic Governor.
NO ONE expected the Socialists who are beholden to their “sugar daddy” – George Soros – to help solve the crisis at the border as they NEED additional voters for their base (and recurring fraud) and for the POWER they feel they are entitled to wield. It WILL take until the 2020 election to show any signs of fixing the Invader problem when the GOP regains control of the House and retains control of the Senate and WH. In the interim, nothing will be done while the Socialists continue their temper tantrums as 2 year olds over Trump’s win in 2016.
How do these folks become US citizens before the next election? The REPUBLICANS are opposed to the proposed bill— For some, it doesn’t shut down immigration. For other R’s, it doesn’t address work visas for the farmers needing unskilled labor to harvest their crops. The Chamber of Commerce opposes it. Silicon Valley opposes it. If they wanted to gain D support, where is the But, I do give you credit for working “Socialism” George Soros, voter fraud, and 2016 election into a comment on a 2019 immigration proposal. I am disappointed you left out a Hillary Clinton conspiracy.
You know as well as I being able to vote does not mean you have to be; but should be by Law, a citizen. I’ve suggested you sign on to the Judicial Watch site and read how they are uncovering the voter fraud throughout the US – including your own PA.
AND that JW was the first to uncover Hillary’s illegal email server, the classified info on it in violation of the Espionage Act. She’s currently (at last count) guilty of 114 felonies and counting just while at the State Dept.
So explain WHY with all this evidence JW has uncovered, WHY has Hillary never been indicted or fined for a single crime? Does that question never cross your mind? 114 felonies were missed by the FBI???
How many of the JW identified illegal voters have been charged and convicted? If you wish to assess the credibility of Tom Fitton, read his released comments on the Mueller Report. THEN read the actual Mueller report. If you believe it is a correct assessment, continue to believe you are being fed truthful info. History will not judge on truth being what we want to hear.
It is about time that we created a comprehensive immigration plan that puts our country’s needs first. Merit based immigration must replace chain migration and unregulated admissions. Part of that plan must include E-verify and penalties against companies/corporations…penalties that really impact their bottom line, with their continued violations.
We had that plan passed by the Senate in 2013—it never made it off Boehner’s desk because he could not stand up to the Freedom Caucus obstruction of the bill. Despite repeated Boehner promises, it died at the end of 2014. NO action taken. If you vote for legislative obstructionist, you get legislative obstruction. In 2018, a bipartisan Senate bill was taken to Trump and he rejected it—he did not want immigrants from “sh-t hole countries.”
Sometimes I wish President Trump would just keep his mouth shut. The less he says about the failures of the demoncraps in Congress now the more ammunition he has come 2020. If the demoncraps in Congress came together with the Republicans and solved the immigration laws that would be a huge talking point for the demoncrap candidates in 2020, for all positions not just President.
Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) is done ignoring the situation at the border as it spirals out of control — and he has a plan to fix it.
As IJR has extensively reported, there is a crisis at the border. Hundreds o […]
What exactly is the length of the border wall that Trump has not secured enough funding?
Senator Graham’s fix doesn’t go far enough. It should also include DEPORTATION of all Illegal Aliens presently in the US. It should also include abolishing asylum as the go-to method of entering the US because it’s obvious none of the Invaders will show up for a court hearing years down the road. It should also include that NO Invader is to be fed, sheltered or provided medical care; but should be provided with transportation to the nearest Point of Entry and told to go home.
“Graham’s new proposal would require Central American migrants to apply for asylum from their home countries or Mexico.” Dibble
Madison and Graham are confused about how asylum works. You shouldn’t confuse breaking the law with being “innovative”.
House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) doesn’t think the third presidential run will be the charm for former Vice President Joe Biden.

Madison did not provide us with Kevin McCarthy’s credentials for judging Democrat primaries. Is AXIOS asking everyone in the Congress? When I think of someone who has their finger on the pulse of the Democrat party, I would not put the Minority Leader in the House on the list. She would have a “wait and see” response, but the question would make much more sense addressed to the Speaker of the House.
Smoochy Biden will have his butt handed to him during a debate with Trump IF he should luck out over the other 25, 30 or 40 Leftist dimwits running. He’ll have to answer for #44’s ineptitude and appeasement (of Iranian mullahs w/$$$ Billions) and support for terrorist organizations over his 8 year reign since he (Biden) was in a position to help shape policy.
Also, Biden’s close relationship with the Chicoms and the $1.5 Billion deal his son – Hunter – made with them and the Bank of China (while riding around on Air Force 2 with VP Daddy) should be investigated by Congress and/or a Special Counsel.
Question is: (1) How much money did VP Daddy get out of that covert deal with the Chinese Communists, and (2) how much did #44 receive to help cover it up like he did Hillary’s repeated illegal activities?
WHERE did you get the idea the Iranian mullahs wanted to denuclearize?? YOU are part of the country that CHANGED what is expected of a POTUS nominee. Biden has no sexual assault accusations, but if he did, YOU made that OKAY. Biden has no fines for corrupt business practices, but YOU made it OKAY going forward. Biden has not lied 5 times a day on the campaign–BUT you made that OKAY too. No history of adultery—now OKAY. No tapes of bragging of grabbing women by the pussy—BUT that is OKAY going forward. 4 Bankruptcies, OKAY. Campaign members meeting with foreign adversaries is OKAY. No tax returns, OKAY. Contempt of Congress, OKAY. THAT is what YOU have given the US political system. There is no going back. There is not 1 standard for Trump and 1 for everyone else running. YOU set that bar so low, can not imagine ANYONE can’t pass your ZERO standards.
The College Board is taking the first steps in assigning students with an “adversity score” to complement their SAT scores as part of the admissions testing for prospective students.
According to a report by […]
IMHO, this is so wrong. The ability of someone, anyone, to get into college should be based purely and simply on their achievements and ability. This farcical “adversity score” only exacerbates the victim mentality foisted upon minorities who are capable of pulling themselves up by their own bootstraps.
Mike is confused about pulling one self up by bootstraps.
You can’t do that when you don’t have boots and you don’t have straps.
“The ability of someone, anyone, to get into college should be based purely and simply on their achievements and ability.” Mike

Graham is confused. Not enough AID money is not the problem!
Corrupt governments, the drug war and gangs, foreign multi-national corporations are much of the problem. These people need counteraction and policy changes more than money. The people need better wages, too, but that is just a start.
So now that you have identified the problems, as you see them, what are your solutions?
Solutions are the hard part that few people are willing to tackle. For example, us stopping other government’s corruption when our own government is so corrupt is not easy. While it is the right thing to attempt, what would be the odds of success when we can’t manage it ourselves?
The fact that YOU had to ask someone else about solutions is telling.
The FACT you have NO SOLUTIONS is EVEN MORE TELLING.
Just another finger pointer. We ALREADY have billions of them.
You don’t get it. I am not the one elected to solve these issues. Ultimately, I am told by elected officials what to do. But like any grunt, I like to grumble, too.
“You don’t get it.” OH, I get it. I see right through people like you who just want to complain but can’t bring anything else to the table. You are as irritating to me as a boil on my butt.
Nice try. Don’t get that boil lanced just yet.
Neither you nor Republicans have resolved any of the issues that concern me.
Asylum. Perhaps the USA should not try to be the “Land of the Free and the Home of the Asylum-Seekers.” Just how many people on this Planet should we allow to reside within the United States simply because they can utter a three syllable word; Asylum? Ten thousand? Ten Million? One Brillion? How many are foreign agents traveling incognito as persons fleeing persecution?
History illustrates how we within the USA resolved persecution by evicting the British from our land. Twice.

“If you can’t face the Fox audience, you can’t face the U.S. It’s that simple.” Whoopie Goldberg
Whoopie, being embedded in the mainstream media as she is, is confused. As Warren pointed out, it clearly isn’t that simple when standing up for principles. Fox viewers who might express a modicum of curiosity will listen to Warren wherever they can. The others aren’t going to be bothered anyway, as expressed on IJR every day.
Her point is to starve Fake News from funds.
“Her point is to starve Fake News from funds.” Let me paraphrase, “her point is to censor Fox News”. PERIOD!
“The others aren’t going to be bothered anyway, as expressed on IJR every day.” Such a narrow view from a narrow mind.
She is absolutely afraid that once someone ACTUALLY watches Fox, their own opinion will change from what they have been TOLD about Fox.

Sounds like the woman is a little short on her history. Wasn’t Muslim Barry really an illegitimate president since he was an anti-American Marxist masquerading as a Democrat? That he also has a forged birth certificate? That he is an Indonesian citizen? That he is a radicalized Saul Alinsky puppet (like Hillary)?
Are the people who say he’s an illegitimate president not looking at the results of what he has accomplished? He stands by the constitution and upholds the law, all met by opposition from the very people who condemn him.
He has done almost everything he promised. What he hasn’t finished is because of the Democrats in office and some RINOs. The majority of the citizens of the US support and love our president.
Former Vice President Joe Biden’s biggest competitor in the 2020 presidential primary race may be his own foreign policy record.

Not even that. Der Smooch Biden has NOTHING going for him but name recognition – if that. Maybe a future Special Counsel will get busy and investigate Biden’s ties to Chinese Communism and the $1.5 Billion his son – Hunter – got during his trip on Air Force 2 with his VP daddy. No record how much daddy (or #44) got from the deal. Certainly #44 got a small pile of $$$ since he now has a net worth of $40 million and never held an outside job.

Yes, I know. And all I can think of should they resort to such tactics is, the grade school reply, sticks and stones…
Could you have found a further left-leaning source other than common dreams?
Oh, wait a minute. I see you doubled down. You cited common dreams quoting media matters. BWAhahahahahahahaha
Nice effort there, but you still get an F.
Based on the track record of both common dreams and media matters, what in hell do you expect them to say about Fox?
Maybe he’s “confused” that media matters is funded by billionaire George Soros.
I am confused as to how his funding makes their findings in any way inaccurate. Media Matters had gone after Fake News quite often, and for good reason.
Interesting that FOX talk show host -Sean Hannity (at #1) – has a M-F audience of 3.086 million; Tucker Carlson has 2.834 million and fake news CNN’s Primetime show with somebody named Cuomo comes in at #26 with 767,000 viewers. Overall FOX comes in with 2.395 million viewers daily according to Nielson TV Audience Data. Maybe Chief Spreading Bull should rethink her appearance on FOX to get her polling up to around 6 percent tops.
That just shows how many millions of viewers are confused by BS.
Just shut up #Elizabeth Warren. Venom spews from you every time you speak. That is the definition of hate speech!!! You and your kind are who are causing this great divide right now. Sit down, shut up, support our president and watch all the good that will come from it!!!!
Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) finally called for an apology surrounding the Holocaust comments made by Rep. Rashida Tlaib — only she wants the apology to come from President Donald Trump.
As IJR Red p […]
Any apologies in this should come from Tlaib. She is a disgusting individual and deserves no respect. If Nancy wants apoligies she has it wrong thinking someone should apologize to Tlaib. Tlaib is a pure 100% scumbag. Maybe Nancy is right. Trump should tell her he is sorry that she is such a total dumb A–.
Pelosi should have reeled in these radical new progressives long ago, now they are trying to run the show and Nancy has become even more irrelevant! What a bunch of losers we have in the House. All of them stuffed into a box, wouldn’t equal one intelligent person. Zero respect for the Dumocraps, never seen such a farcical group of humans.
Clearly, her intent was to state that she has a calming feeling that comes from her understanding of revisionist history, not from reminiscing about the holocaust. However, it is no less offensive that she cites revisionist history/fantasy as the source of her “calming feeling.”
Pound sand, Nancy. This is the kind of insult that came from the Reischtag in 1930s Hitler Germany. FIrst the insults, then the open and aggressive hostility, then the stars on our clothing, then the murders… Evil incarnate!
“Silence in the face of evil is itself evil: God will not hold us guiltless. Not to speak is to speak. Not to act is to act.” (D. Bonhoffer)

We shall never forget.
We shall never forget.
Not Jewish but well said. Thumbs up to you.
Drinking again Nancy? Put down the bottle!!
There is no way the old broad is playing with a full deck, I sure hope people remember this stuff in 2020.
Tlaib’s statement sounds like a drug fueled, rambling condemnation of the creation of modern Israel. Apparently, she denies that what is called Palestine is on ancient Israeli land created by the Roman Emperor Hadrian in 135 AD after his armies put down the Jewish rebellion, committed genocide against the Jews and renamed the land. It still is and has been Israeli land. If the Palestinians would try to live in peace, there would be peace. Democrat leadership = anti-semitic.
I doubt there were any drugs involved in this. This is the way people talk today.
Pelosi is a terrible joke! Half the time she can’t remember what she said! Does she have dementia?
She probably stays drunk most of the time. She’s known to hit the wine produced by her CA vineyards.
It has been revealed, +/- 2 years ago, that the pharmacy that serves many members of Congress does supply Alzheimer drugs to one or more members of Congress. Piglosi could be one, there are many members of Congress that are well past their use by date.
The leader of the Palestine at the time of the holocaust worked with Hitler to kill the Jews. Does she even know that? This woman should not be in the House of Representatives. What is wrong with you Nancy?
She is such an imbecile – and her latest eye lift has done nothing for her.

No question that she’ll be elected to fill Udall’s seat. NM is a Democratic stronghold with lots of Illegal Aliens in their sanctuary cities (Albuquerque, Santa Fe, Roswell, Las Cruces, Farmington, Deming) who will be voting to keep the freebies rolling in.
