President Trump Announces Retirement Executive Order To Help Seniors

Published

on

President Donald Trump heads to Charlotte, North Carolina today as he plans to make a landmark announcement concerning retirement as an aging Baby Boomer population is retiring in epic proportions. The Baby Boomer generation, or Boomers, are those born between 1946 and 1964 and are heading to retirement in droves. Approximately, 10,000 Boomers are retiring daily on average currently.

President Trump is set to sign an executive order known as “Strengthening Retirement Security in America” at the Harris Campus of Central Piedmont Community College near the airport. The purpose of the executive order is an effort to make it easier for small businesses to group together to provide workers with 401K retirement plans.

A White House spokesperson states the order is part of an administration policy “to promote programs that enhance retirement security and expand access to workplace retirement savings plans for American workers.” Known as “multiple employer plans” Trump administration officials state this option could make it cheaper for small employers to offer retirement savings options for their employees.

UPDATE: Trump speaks before signing the order. Watch.

Ben Edwards owns a small motorcycle repair shop known as “Ben’s v-Twins,” and has never been able to offer retirement benefits to employees. Edwards states – “It’s very tough for a small business to compete against the big guys. If you can offer a 401K, or anything similar to that, to an employee, it’s definitely going to keep them happier.”

Government statistics show that Edwards is not alone either as some 40% of America’s workforce does not have access to 401K plans. The majority are employees of small businesses.

President Trump will be accompanied by Labor Secretary Alexander Acosta and Linda McMahon, administrator of the Small Business Administration.

Friday’s announcement about retirement plans comes after President Trump’s surprise move to cancel raises for federal workers. The move will impact hundreds of workers at Charlotte’s Veterans Affairs Housing Authority along with several other government agencies. Federal workers were slotted to receive a 2.1% pay increase this year, however, due to the rising federal deficit, President Trump has made the decision to put cancel that raise.

The public signing of the executive order will follow a private fundraiser for Mark Harris (R-N.C., 9th District) and U.S. Rep. Ted Budd (R-N.C., 13th District), at Carmel Country Club in south Charlotte.

Protests are already planned ahead of President Trump’s visit to Charlotte with “Indivisible Charlotte” planning to rally outside the CPCC Harris campus before and during the executive order signing. Another group known as “Indivisible N.C. District 9” will protest outside Carmel Country Club.

According to the Charlotte Observer

“On Thursday, the administration faced questions about why Trump is coming to North Carolina to sign the executive order, and whether the trip is intended to defray the costs of his campaign fund-raising stops for Budd and Harris.

“The president is going out to the American people,” said James Sherk, a White House labor adviser. “This is a significant action…It seems more fitting and appropriate to do that in real America than here in the Beltway, surrounded by the swamp.’”

The North Carolina Republicans are facing uncertainty over whether the state’s congressional districts might be redrawn under court order even before the fall vote. Democrats are attempting to flip control of the U.S. House in the upcoming November elections. In order to accomplish this, they need just 23 seats.

President Trump’s fundraising effort on behalf of Harris and Budd comes at a time when both Republicans are said to be lagging significantly behind their Democratic opponents in cash on hand in districts where the election is considered some of the most competitive in the state. According to July campaign finance reports, Harris has under $300,000 in campaign funds. Meanwhile, his Democratic opponent Dan McCready has $1.8 million. Budd trails opponent Kathy Manning by around $500,000.

A fundraiser lunch will help Harris and Budd get donations from wealthy Mecklenburg county Republicans. A photo and a spot at a roundtable with President Trump will go for $25,000, according to the invitation. A picture with the president is $10,000 and just attending the reception is $1,000.

WSOC reports on President Trump’s visit and fundraising efforts, along with the potential redistricting and what that may mean in the upcoming November election –

The visit comes amid doubts about the future of North Carolina’s House districts. This week a three-judge panel ruled the state’s districts were illegal partisan gerrymanders. The judges found the GOP-controlled legislature redrew district lines in 2016 to mix and match Democratic voters so as to ensure Republicans could retain ten of the state’s 13 congressional seats.

It’s not the first court ruling throwing out GOP-drawn Congressional maps this year. The Pennsylvania Supreme Court in January found that state’s map to be unfairly drawn in favor of Republicans. The U.S. Supreme Court declined to hear an appeal from state Republicans and the new districts stood.

If the federal panel’s ruling in North Carolina is ultimately upheld and elections are held under new maps this year, the benefit for Democrats could be striking. In Monday’s ruling, the court singled out a proposed map offered by the plaintiffs that could result in six Democratic districts in North Carolina – double the party’s current number of seats.

While a decision on whether the maps must be redrawn is still pending, the candidates are pushing forward as normal with their campaigns.

The 9th District has favored Republicans for decades, but it was redrawn in 2016 to span the eastern Charlotte suburbs, then along the South Carolina border toward Fayetteville.

The 13th District, which covers suburban areas near Greensboro in the Piedmont Triad region, supported Trump over Hillary Clinton by 9 percentage points in the 2016 presidential election. But in the face of a midterm backlash against the party in power, Democrats have a good shot at taking the seats. Harris, a Baptist minister, narrowly won an expensive, bitter primary campaign against 9th District GOP incumbent Robert Pittenger in the spring, but it drained his campaign funds. He now faces McCready, a business owner with a military record and a strong religious background.

In Historic 9-0 Decision, Supreme Court Totally Shredded Democrats – YUGE!!!!

Published

...

* By

Sometimes the Supreme Court gets it right and in a rarity, leveling a historic 9-0 decision, SCOTUS just sidestepped two major cases concerning partisan gerrymandering. This allows controversial district maps to stand and be used in this fall’s midterm elections just the way they are. That’s great news for Republicans and Democrats are incensed over it. They had their hearts set on redistricting voting districts… i.e. partisan gerrymandering. They will literally do anything to steal an election which includes gerrymandering, having the dead vote and recruiting illegal aliens and refugees to vote. Those are just a few of their favorite tricks.

You have to ask yourself if Dems are willing to illegally and unethically unseat a sitting president simply because he is a Republican and they don’t like him, how far will they go to rig an election? As far as they can possibly get away with, sometimes with the help of government agencies. They bend the rules just as far as they can and had planned to do so in the midterms as well. Their blue wave is more of a drip and now this. Things are just not looking good for leftists in the upcoming elections.

This decision is a huge one from SCOTUS. CNN reported: “The Supreme Court on Monday sidestepped two major cases concerning partisan gerrymandering, allowing controversial district maps to stand and be used in this fall’s midterm elections. The 9-0 ruling authored by Chief Justice John Roberts in a Wisconsin case is a blow to Democrats who argued the Republican-drawn maps prevented fair and effective representation by diluting voters’ influence and penalizing voters based on their political beliefs.”

Democrats won a challenge in a lower court, but the Supreme Court’s decision on the Wisconsin case Monday would limit who can bring such cases in the future. A second case from Maryland involved the Republicans challenging a district map drawn by Democrats. The justices said that a lower court did not act improperly in leaving the map in place. In an unsigned opinion with no dissents, the justices said that the challengers failed to reach the high bar of showing “irreparable harm” that would be necessary for a preliminary injunction to block the map. “Even if we assume — contrary to the findings of the District Court — that plaintiffs were likely to succeed on the merits of their claims, the balance of equities and the public interest tilted against their request for a preliminary injunction,” the court said.

The court’s opinion in the Maryland case means that for now, the justices will leave having to answer whether the court can set a standard for when politicians go too far in drawing lines to benefit one party over another for another day. But it also makes it harder to bring it before the high court. This issue is sure to come before the court again, however, and it is one of the reasons it is so important that President Trump select another constitutional originalist to sit on the court when the next vacancy comes up. For instance, Kennedy was seen as the swing vote on this case. Rumor has it he will retire sometime this summer and President Trump will fill his spot. This could solidly weigh the Supreme Court in favor of conservatives for the first time in many years.

On Monday, Justice Anthony Kennedy stayed relatively silent. The last time the Supreme Court heard a major partisan gerrymandering case, in 2004, four conservative justices said the issue should be decided by the political branches, not the courts. But Kennedy was unwilling to bar all future claims of injury from partisan gerrymanders. That stance may soon be moot.

It would seem a whole raft of rulings are going against Democrats and their manipulation of voting. Judges ruled this last week that you can wear clothing with political expressions to the voting booth. That’s a win for free speech, something the left abhors. Democrats are always whining about how unfair the elections are, all the while trying to corrupt the voting process itself. For instance, trying to kill off voter ID. Lately, it hasn’t been working for them, which makes me smile.

This is nothing new for the left. They’ve been doing this for decades where they try to gerrymander districts so Democrats can win more seats even though the majority don’t want them there. When Republicans decided they had had enough and decided to turn the tables and give the Dems a bit of their own medicine, liberals had a meltdown. Unfortunately for the Dems, not all judges are liberal and even the liberal justices on the Supreme Court elected to punt this one.

It appears that Americans are going to give the left an even bigger boot in 2018 than they did in 2016. Good times. The Trump wave is still building and it looks like it’s going to crush the Democrats flat. In the meantime, expect the shrill whining from the left to intensify as they know their time is short and they will fight every inch of the way — including cheating when it comes to elections.

Nunes Announces New Clinton Evidence, Burns Entire Swamp To The Ground

Published

on

...

* By

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes has been at the forefront of fighting DC’s swamp-infested deep state since the beginning. He’s one brave guy and he’s still going after Hillary Clinton. Nunes is far from done with Hillary and she still has an awful lot to fear over her past actions.

Nunes has adamantly stated that Hillary Clinton’s campaign “colluded” with nearly every top official in the Justice Department and FBI. That does not surprise me at all. We all know in our gut that charge is true. The fact that someone like Nunes would come out and boldly proclaim it is heartening.

This is all tied in with the Trump dossier since Clinton was allegedly largely behind that smear tactic aimed at President Trump. Nunes went on Fox News in August where the interview focused on the topic of Trump dossier author Christopher Steele and his ties to Bruce Ohr, a high-level DOJ official who fed the FBI information from the ex-British spy even after he was no longer a source for providing confidential information to the media.

The whole dossier nonsense started out when BuzzFeed published it last year. It contains sensationalized falsehoods about President Trump. I guess Hillary Clinton and the Dems thought it could be used as leverage. Instead, it backfired, spectacularly. Now, Republicans think that the FBI deceived a FISA court into getting permission to spy on Carter Page without disclosing who paid for the dossier.

It came out that it was Clinton’s campaign and the DNC who retained Fusion GPS for the anti-Trump research. All roads in this lead back to Hillary Clinton. Nunes is blaming the media for ignoring Clinton’s involvement as well as Bruce Ohr’s in all this and is stating that the American people “need to know it” and called for the declassification of “an unprecedented amount of information.”

President Trump views this as nothing less than a witch hunt and I agree:

“The big story that the Fake News Media refuses to report is lowlife Christopher Steele’s many meetings with Deputy A.G. Bruce Ohr and his beautiful wife, Nelly. It was Fusion GPS that hired Steele to write the phony & discredited Dossier, paid for by Crooked Hillary & the DNC,” he tweeted last week. “Do you believe Nelly worked for Fusion and her husband STILL WORKS FOR THE DEPARTMENT OF ‘JUSTICE.’ I have never seen anything so Rigged in my life. Our A.G. is scared stiff and Missing in Action. It is all starting to be revealed – not pretty. IG Report soon? Witch Hunt!”

Trump has also said that he may need to get involved in all this to get to the bottom of it. Especially if the FBI doesn’t provide conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch and others with text messages of former Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe, whom he has accused of harboring a bias against him.

Hillary Clinton has been held blameless in all this… protected by those who are surrounding her and covering her flank. That includes James Comey and Andrew McCabe, as well as a number of others who are complicit in our intelligence agencies and the media.

Ohr is key in the new Clinton evidence that could burn the entire swamp to the ground:

“Ohr’s wife, Nellie, was employed by Fusion GPS, the opposition research firm that commissioned the dossier in an effort that was funded in part by Democrats, to assist in the cultivation of research on then-candidate Trump. Nunes stressed the need to have her testify too.

“She also was working for Fusion GPS, working for the Clinton campaign,” he said. “So here you have information flowing from the Clinton campaign from the Russians, likely I believe was handed directly from Russian propaganda arms to the Clinton campaign, fed into the top levels of the FBI and Department of Justice to open up a counterintelligence investigation into a political campaign that has now colluded [with] nearly every top official at the DOJ and FBI over the course of the last couple years. Absolutely amazing.”

“Nunes and fellow GOP chairmen Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., and Bob Goodlatte, R-Va., have pressed the DOJ for months for documents related to the Russia and Hillary Clinton emails investigations, with some success. However, Nunes complained that the DOJ has been slow to comply.

“He also said there needs to be “an investigation into these top-level people as to how somebody concocted the idea that it’s okay to take information from one political campaign and use it to open up an investigation on the other political — on somebody else’s opposing political party.”

“Nunes and other Trump allies in Congress have said they have seen no evidence that would have justified the Obama administration to open up a collusion investigation into the Trump campaign.

“Asked if there will be accountability in the DOJ and FBI, Nunes declined to say if he expects there to be prosecutions but did emphasize his call to the president to release the unredacted FISA warrant applications to spy on Page.

“The only way there could be accountability is one step at a time and it deals with full and complete transparencies,” Nunes said. Full sunlight on as many of the documents that don’t endanger national security, which from our committee members, we’ve sent a letter to the president, we don’t believe they’re going to jeopardize any sources or methods. And I think people I have said many times are going to be shocked as to what went into a FISA warrant against Carter Page and even more importantly, what did not go into the FISA application, that was not presented to the court involving the information that they had on Carter Page.'”

The obstructionist Democrats are crying foul and saying that this is a GOP effort to discredit the Mueller probe. No, it’s not. It’s an effort to see justice done concerning Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama. Nunes is determined to hold Clinton accountable. Good.
