Who is in charge? Apparently, not the White House. No matter what you think of the current president, this pattern of military disconnection from the president we elect is beyond dangerous — it is the beginnings of a soft coup by a military establishment that could neither defeat the Taliban nor figure out an orderly and honorable exit from Afghanistan.

The released topline reduces spending by another $16 billion beyond the debt limit deal and upholds sequestration for the remainder of Fiscal Year 2024. Most importantly, apart from the broad national defense and domestic spending categories, the topline does not dictate how the monies will be spent. That is why it is incumbent on the House and Senate to pass the individual appropriations bills for each agency. It is through passage of these bills, that Congress gives direct instruction to the administration on things like prohibiting the use of funds to push DEI programs, whether specific regulations shall be funded and potentially defunding the persecution of President Donald Trump by the Biden Justice Department.

Jan. 8, 2024, Fairfax, Va.—Americans Limited Government President Rick Manning today issued the following statement reacting to the new topline negotiated framework for the $1.59 trillion U.S. discretionary budget: “The released topline reduces spending by another $16 billion beyond the debt lim...

01/08/2024

The Supreme Court granted a petition for a writ of certiorari to former President Donald Trump on Jan. 5 for an appeal to Maine and Colorado’s decisions removing him from the presidential primary and general election ballots in those states when the states alleged Trump had engaged in insurrection against the United States by giving a speech on Jan. 6, 2021 at the National Mall where he urged supporters to “peacefully and patriotically make your voices heard” prior to the riot at the U.S. Capitol that day as Congress considered challenges to the 2020 presidential election. According to the Court, oral arguments will be immediately heard on Feb. 8. The fact that the Supreme Court is hearing the case could be a very good sign for former President Trump that the Court is strongly considering overturning the decisions by Maine and Colorado. If the Supreme Court had rejected Trump’s petition for a writ of certiorari, denying the capacity for an appeal, the Colorado ruling could have immediately gone into effect, allowing Trump’s removal from the ballot to occur. Instead, the case will be heard, and so the Colorado Supreme Court’s decision will remain stayed, pending the outcome of the case at the U.S. Supreme Court.

Underscoring the political moment the nation finds itself in, the latest polling from Economist-YouGov take Dec. 31, 2023 to Jan. 2, 2024, show that incumbent President Joe Biden is leading potential Republican challengers Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis and former South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley in nation polls, 44 percent to 41 percent, and 41 percent to 36 percent, respectively. In the meantime, Biden is tied with former President Donald Trump in the same exact poll, 44 percent to 44 percent, raising the question for GOP primary voters, is Trump the only candidate who can win?

01/04/2024

Unlike in 2020, when then-candidate Joe Biden was leading almost all of the polls — out of 293 national polls taken during that cycle compiled by RealClearPolitics, Biden led 285 of them, or 97 percent of them — this time around, former President Donald Trump has an observable advantage in the polls, leading President Biden in 103 out of 214 polls taken, or 48 percent of them. Biden has only led 81, or just 38 percent, and 30 are tied, or 14 percent. This has tended to be true even in the four-way, five-way race polls and seven-way race polls as the political parties attempt to stack the deck in every way imaginable to find a configuration of candidates that might show Biden prevailing. Since the polls are real and show Biden is quite vulnerable regardless of which race is considered rather early in the process — the primaries haven’t even begun yet — this is leading to widespread panic in the Washington, D.C. establishment and attempts to remove Trump from the ballot first from Colorado and now Maine as GOP appeals rush to the Supreme Court so that Republicans in the primary and general election voters will be the ones to determine who the next president is.

Maine and Colorado Democrats try to knock Donald Trump off the ballot for 2024.

01/03/2024

A new USA Today/Suffolk University poll shows young people and minorities retracting their support from Biden, and Former President Trump earning significant gains with these same voters at the same time. According to the poll, just 63% of Black Americans plan to vote for Biden – a twenty-four percentage point decline in support compared to 2020, when Biden won Black voters 87% to 13%. Biden is outright losing Hispanics by five points in the poll, after winning them by a two-to-one margin in 2020. The poll shows Trump leading Biden with Hispanics 39% to 34%, after losing Hispanics by a full 33 percentage points, 65% to 32%. Among young people, Biden continues to suffer steep losses. Trump now leads Biden narrowly with voters under 35 – 37% to 33% – after losing younger voters by twenty-four points in 2020. While several media outlets have tempered these numbers, arguing that the majority of these disgruntled voters plan to support third-party candidates, not necessarily move to Trump’s camp, there is evidence that both could happen. According to the USA Today poll, around a fifth of Black, Hispanic, and young voters respectively plan to vote for someone other than Trump or Biden, and since these voters heavily skewed Democrat in 2020 these votes will largely detract from Biden.

01/03/2024

The federal government is collecting and storing massive amount of data from cell phones, emails and other communications on Americans without regard for the rights of individuals to not be surveilled. This mass surveillance cannot be justified given the U.S. v. Jones decision over a simple GPS placed on an actual criminal suspect’s vehicle. If a suspected drug dealer is protected from tracking, it is impossible to reconcile the mass surveillance that Edward Snowden revealed and former National Security Agency (NSA) intelligence official Willam Binney and former FBI counter-terrorism agent Tim Clemente have talked about in the media. What has been revealed is a tapestry of surveillance of each individual stored in government databases allowing prosecutors and others to look back into time revealing not only on-going activity, but even the content of what was said on mobile phone devices. Binney quit the NSA when he discovered that the agency was using software he developed to surveil private citizens without the benefit of a warrant. Snowden revealed the all-encompassing nature of the surveillance, and Clemente claimed to CNN’s Carol Costello when talking about conversations the wife of the Boston Marathon bomber had with the now convicted terrorist, “I can tell you that no digital communication is secure. So these communications will be found out. The conversation will be known.” It is time for Congress to reign in the surveillance state and significantly reform, if not completely eliminate, the FISA Court system as it relates to domestic surveillance of U.S. citizens. We either have a Constitution, or we don’t.

Attempts to remove former President Donald Trump in Colorado, Maine and other states does not appear to be helping President Joe Biden in the polls, the latest results of the USA Today-Suffolk University poll show, with Trump leading Biden 37 percent to 34 percent in the hypothetical four-way race between Biden, Trump, Robert Kennedy, Jr. and Cornell West. Similarly, Trump still leads his rivals for the Republican presidential nomination in the same poll following the attempts to remove him from the Colorado and Maine ballots, Florida Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis and former South Carolina Republican Gov. Nikki Haley, with 62 percent for Trump, 13 percent for Haley and 10 percent for DeSantis. When USA Today-Suffolk University took the poll in October, Trump was leading his GOP opponents by 46 points. Now he’s leading by 49 points. This might indicate that voters don’t think too much of the efforts to remove Trump from the ballot under the allegation he had “committed” insurrection. Or, it might actually be helping Trump by making his principal opponents, Biden and the Democrats, look like they are abusing the nation’s justice system to prevent the opposition party, the Republicans, from choosing their own nominee and competing in the general election. In other words, they look like tyrants, because suppressing opposition parties is in fact tyrannical. What do you think?

01/02/2024

2024 promises to be an opportunity for Republicans in Congress, particularly in the House of Representatives, to stymie the Biden administration's multi-front onslaught against America. But this can only occur if the House GOP can focus on what brings them together rather than what drives them apart. After the Dec. 31 departure of former Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.), the expulsion of former U.S. Rep. George Santos (R-N.Y.) and the anticipated early March retirement of U.S. Rep. Bill Johnson (R-Ohio) cut the Republicans’ razor thin majority in half. While the GOP is expected to hold the McCarthy and Johnson seats, governing in 2024 requires virtual unanimity in the House GOP Conference, something in short supply. This is not a philosophical debate but one of numbers. What is not sustainable is the constant knife at the throat of the Speaker, who was just elected by the House GOP a couple of months ago, known as a motion to vacate the chair. The motion to vacate is an important safeguard to prevent a run-away speakership, but in a historically narrow majority it threatens to become Robespierre's guillotine once again sending the House into anarchy. What do you think?

12/22/2023

Former President Donald Trump’s lead against President Joe Biden has widened in the latest poll of seven battleground states, with the latest Morning Consult poll showing Trump beating Biden by five percentage points, 47% to 42%. This is a slightly wider lead than Trump had over Biden in swing state polling conducted in early November that showed Trump ahead of Biden by four percentage points, 44% to 48%. Meanwhile, new polling conducted for CNN by SSRS shows Trump’s margins widening specifically in Michigan and Georgia, buoyed by voters who sat out the 2020 election but plan to vote in 2024. The CNN poll of Michigan and Georgia voters reveals another group of Americans who are flocking to Trump, specifically eligible voters who sat out the 2020 election. Michigan – which Trump lost in 2020 – appears to be swinging back toward the GOP, with Trump beating Biden by ten points, 50% to 40% in the CNN poll. Michigan residents who did not vote in the 2020 election appear particularly motivated to replace Biden, and plan to support Trump by a jaw-dropping 40 points according to CNN’s poll. In Georgia, Trump is ahead of Biden by five points, 49% to 44%, and once again he leads Biden by wide double digits – 26 percentage points – among Georgia residents who sat out the 2020 election.

12/21/2023

The Colorado Supreme Court’s decision to throw Donald Trump off the state ballot for both the primary and general election clearly demonstrates the abject fear held by the establishment that if given a choice, voters will choose Trump and he will win. It is clear that in Joe Biden’s America, the only true act of political defiance is supporting Trump. On Jan. 20, 2025, President Donald Trump should thank the Colorado Supreme Court justices by name for the role they played in making him the only true choice for change. As so often happens, what they intended for evil will have the exact opposite impact. Whether you are on the right or the left, you have to agree that the Supreme Court needs to act to strike down this act of outrageous desperation. Denying the American people the ability to choose their leaders is beyond dangerous and cannot be tolerated and normalized.

Global warming alarmists are continually looking for evidence to support their doomsday predictions and just last year, Lake Mead, which results from the Hoover Dam in Nevada, was a prime focal point. Why should you care? The water levels of Lake Mead serve as a cautionary tale when believing apocalyptic headlines that generate clicks, and cause heads to nod in the “woke” we are all going to die if we don’t end the American economy as we know it within ten years crowd. The water levels of Lake Mead had dropped more than 45 feet in the three years from January of 2020 to December of 2022. Knowing ‘scientists’ worried that the Lake could approach ‘dead pool’ levels in the near future ending the electricity generation from the dam. A catastrophic event for the Las Vegas and Phoenix population centers. When the climate guys can’t tell you what the rainfall will be next week, month or year, you are right to be skeptical when they create news releases for near future disasters with headlines that would embarrass creators of the Sharknado movie series.

12/21/2023

The move by the Colorado Supreme Court to remove former President Donald Trump from the ballot of the March 5 Republican presidential primary there and the general election should he be nominated in Nov. 2024 is causing Republicans including his opponents to predictably circle the wagons around Trump, and it appears to be causing fissures among Democrats as well who see the move will only help Trump. Writing for NBC News, Jonathan Allen, Katherine Doyle and Dasha Burns write, “Colorado hands Trump a political gift by barring him from the ballot,” in which the Biden campaign is actually worried about the blowback involved, quoting a source saying of the White House and the Biden campaign: "They're pissed… [because it makes it look] like Colorado is attempting election interference through non-elected Democratic-appointed justices with funding from 'shady left-wing donors.'” The source added, “We all hope Biden wakes up on Christmas morning to an A3 story in the Delaware News Journal saying that the Supreme Court ruled 9-0 in favor of Trump.” In other words, Democrats are finally worried that the push to remove Trump from the ballot, denying the American people a real choice in the 2024 election—predicated on Democratic prosecutors trying Trump in four different jurisdictions to imprison him—makes them look like stone cold tyrants. No kidding.

12/20/2023

The Colorado Supreme Court voted 4-3 to remove former President Donald Trump from the ballot of the Colorado Republican presidential primary on Dec. 19 in a desperate bid to interfere in the 2024 election as Trump continues to lead incumbent President Joe Biden in national polls, ahead of Biden 47.2 percent to 44.2 percent, according to the latest average polls compiled by RealClearPolitics.com. The ruling attempts, without any criminal charge of insurrection even being brought against Trump in any jurisdiction anywhere, let alone proving it beyond a reasonable doubt with a conviction, that the state of Colorado — and presumably any other state — can just declare whoever they want to be a rebel traitor to the country and therefore not qualified to stand for election under Section 3 of the Fourteenth Amendment. In this case, the question was whether Trump's Jan. 6, 2021 speech at the National Mall where he called for supporters to "peacefully and patriotically make your voices heard" preceding the riot at the U.S. Capitol was an insurrection for which Trump could be disqualified over without any trial or conviction. And as for Republicans considering what to do in the 2024 primary, supporting Trump might increasingly be viewed as the only antidote for what is happening here, the only leader who might stand up to an entrenched establishment. At this point, it is a matter of self-preservation more than anything.

House Republicans have begun cultivating some remedies to radicalism including anti-Semitism that is permeating from offices of diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) on college campuses that have promoted racism against Jews, Asians and Whites in hiring practices in violation of Title VII of the Civil Right Act, but also condoning an environment on private universities to the extent that university leaders when called to testify to Congress did not appear able or willing to denounce calls for the genocide of Jews. In the proposed Labor, Health and Human Services and Education appropriations bill, H.R. 5894, which includes appropriations to the Department of Education, which funds universities through the FAFSA system, includes Section 535 that states, “None of the funds made available by this Act may be used to implement, administer, apply, enforce, or carry out any diversity, equity, and inclusion office, program, or training.” It also defunds DEI hiring practices for the federal government in Section 531.

Don’t look now, but former President Donald Trump appears to be opening up a consistent lead in national polls against incumbent President Joe Biden, with Trump beating Biden 47.2 percent to 43.7 percent, according to the latest average of polls compiled by RealClearPolitics.com. In fact, for more than a month, Trump has led Biden in 20 out of the last 26 national polls taken. Biden led four of them, and two were tied. The leads vary in the polls, anywhere from 10 points to 1 point, but begin to tell a very important story with little more than a week to go until the 2024 New Year begins: a larger plurality or maybe even a majority of Americans would rather see Donald Trump be president than Joe Biden beginning in 2025. Observers would do well to note that national polls do not track candidates’ performance in individual states, they track how a candidate would fare in the popular vote, which Republicans have not won since 2004. No Republican has ever won the popular vote but then lost the election in U.S. history, although Democrats have suffered that fate on numerous occasions, most recently in 2016 and in 2000. Which tells you how well the Electoral College is going for Biden at the moment, which is to say it’s not going very well at all. Looking at the swing states that Trump carried in 2016 but Biden carried in 2020, in Michigan, Pennsylvania, Georgia and Arizona, Trump is leading by 4.8 points, 1.4 points, 5.2 points and 4.8 points, respectively, and Wisconsin is tied, according to the RealClearPolitics.com averages of these particular states.
