Andy Kuzder Loves Burgers and Bikinis - He May Have to Love a Good Fight

Posted by AllardK on December 2, 2016 at 3:22 PM

It is safe to say that every one of Trump's appointees will have an entrenched bureaucracy looking to delay, disrupt, or deflect any policy goals they may have when they move into their new offices on January 20, 2017. Consider the Department of Labor and its recent appeal of a judgement that overturned their new overtime regulation. Consider that they did so on December 1st, 2016, with slightly more than 6 weeks left in the lame duck session, and with the transition now in full swing.

Michael Lind Offers Trump a Policy Framework

Posted by AllardK on November 29, 2016 at 4:13 PM

Corporate-Industrial Capitalism. Large trans-national corporations with supply chains extending around the world. Jurisdictions - whether local, national, or regional - competing for value-added suppliers in these trans-national chains of production and distribution to set up operations in their districts. Big Companies and how they affect America's national security. High-wage value-added workers in manufacturing and related industries. Get it?

The President-Elect and the Electoral College: Don't Speak

Posted by AllardK on November 22, 2016 at 10:38 PM

How does this sound? Prime Minister Pence left the parliamentary sessions in a rush and avoided reporters on his quick car ride back to Number One, Observatory Circle. President Trump was in London, and did not respond to questions from the gathered journalists on the hold-ups to the tax reform legislation Prime Minister Pence has been trying to push through Parliament.

Never Mind State - Who's Going to Be at Health?

Posted by AllardK on November 18, 2016 at 2:38 PM

The Affordable Care Act, or Obamacare as even the President himself calls it, will face an almost certain death by many cuts, and rather soon it seems. The GOP-controlled 115th Congress will get down to business on January 3, 2017, a couple of weeks before President Trump is sworn in. And the House and Senate leaders will almost certainly have a reconciliation bill on Trump's desk as soon as he gets back from the swearing ceremony on Capitol Hill. One that repeals Obamacare and yet also gives the new administration - and the 115th Congress - a transition period to put a replacement plan in place.

The Most Suspenseful Presidential Election Ever

Posted by GregB on November 12, 2016 at 11:42 AM

The night of November 8, 2016 will go down in history as the most suspenseful election night in history. Not since the turnover of the Truman/Dewey election has the American public been so upended. Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton battled it out toe to toe for the entire night unto the wee hours of the following morning as voter tallies creeped in until Trump nailed the number of electorates to crest the top and win the election.

What's In Store For America With The New President?

Posted by GregB on November 11, 2016 at 6:35 PM

Now that Donald Trump has won the presidency all sorts of speculation, sound and ridiculous is spreading throughout the world. The hopeful expect a new age that will make America great again and others see his administration as a new Republican oppressive institution that will favor the wealthy at the expense of the poor and middle class.

Posted by GregB on November 10, 2016 at 5:46 PM

Now that the 2016 US presidential election is over, many are anxious to see what will occur in the aftermath of the historic event. Some fear that President-Elect Donald Trump will go on a tirade undoing just about everything the Obama administration fought so hard to achieve. Others fear that the public who voted for Hillary Clinton will rise up in outrage undermining civil security and plunging the country into disarray for years to come.

Trump and His GOP Must Deliver Change

Posted by AllardK on November 9, 2016 at 4:38 PM

The wave of populism has washed over America. Swamping Obama's vision of an aggressively progressive America. This was a slow moving tsunami and like the actual physical phenomenon, most of the wave throughout it's path, remains hidden under the surface. Until it approaches and then hits the shoreline and surges above the water, shocking everyone who was unprepared for its arrival. And that means just about everyone in both political parties, including independents and third-party voters. To say nothing of pundits, advisors, and bloggers.

LIONS '0', CHRISTIANS '1'

Posted by Roy Ellis on November 9, 2016 at 11:55 AM

What has happened is historical and will never again be repeated, IMO. Christians and the silent majority pushed Trump into the WH. Really hard to get them to stand up and be counted. But, they did, and in so doing have given Trump a populist mandate to bring great change to this country.
