Trump Releases His First Budget Blueprint: Here Are The Winners And Losers

Every budget has winners and losers. (Hey at least we have a budget.) But the losers for too long have been the American taxpayers. This must change. There is perhaps some – some – hope here. Though that $54 billion for the Pentagon should be given back to the American people.

California To Consider Enacting Statewide Sanctuary (Is it about protecting the Democratic Party machine?)

One can’t help but wonder (sic) whether such an effort is in fact not a “humanitarian” or even trade focused effort at all, but in fact driven by the fear that any effort to get to the heart of illegal immigration could undermine the power base of the California Democratic Party that dominates The once Golden State.

The feds are literally seeking to take tens of thousands of acres from private property owners and the state of Texas for their own. The state AG, who it must be noted is also running for governor, has asked the BLM to kindly return to Washington DC.
