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.

Trump About To Drop Presidential Hammer On Obama For Attempting To Overtake Investigation

Published

on

...

* By

More and more is coming out about Spygate. The Obama administration tried to take over the FBI’s investigation of the Trump campaign, according to The Hill’s John Solomon. He covered it last night on Hannity’s show and then wrote on it extensively at The Hill. Solomon claims that the FBI began spying on members of the Trump campaign to gather the intelligence that ultimately justified the collusion investigation, weeks or even months before the FBI had a formal predicate. If true, the whole thing was cooked up and premeditated. It was indeed a pre-planned coup and President Trump is about to drop the presidential hammer on all of them.

“That’s very important. The rules say you can’t use sources until you have a predicated investigation. The predication is July 31, 2016,” Solomon told Hannity. The investigative reporter said he had sources and documents backing up his claim that he would be making public in his report in The Hill on Friday and he did just that.

Solomon started off his well-researched piece with this:

“The bridge to the Russia investigation wasn’t erected in Moscow during the summer of the 2016 election.”

“It originated earlier, 1,700 miles away in London, where foreign figures contacted Trump campaign advisers and provided the FBI with hearsay allegations of Trump-Russia collusion, bureau documents and interviews of government insiders reveal. These contacts in spring 2016 — some from trusted intelligence sources, others from Hillary Clinton supporters — occurred well before FBI headquarters authorized an official counterintelligence investigation on July 31, 2016.”

“The new timeline makes one wonder: Did the FBI follow its rules governing informants?”

A very good question and of course the answer is a resounding “no.”

Solomon stressed that informants were making contacts with the Trump officials and providing information to the FBI “much, much earlier than July 31.” Then he drops the bombshell that according to the FBI, the White House and Obama wanted to take over the whole investigation. Here is where that led on Sean Hannity’s show last night:

John Solomon: I’m putting finishing touches on a column that I think will come out tomorrow. And it will reveal two really important things. The efforts to begin targeting and reaching out to Trump campaign officials to gain intelligence on Russia that would ultimately justify the investigation began weeks and maybe months before the FBI had a formal predicate. And that’s very important the rules say you can’t use sources until you have a predicated investigation. The investigation is July 31, 2016. My sources and documents that I will be able to make public tomorrow will show that there were contacts going on by people identified as informers, informants, people who provided information began much, much earlier than July 31st. That’s the first part. The second part is as the investigation was just starting to ramp up there are internal FBI documents showing FBI agents talking about the White House trying to take over the investigation. Fears that the Justice Department were going to leak for political reasons and their own personal fear.

Sean Hannity: Slow down. When you say the White House you mean the Obama White House- they were attempting to take over the investigation.

John Solomon: That’s what these messages say.

Sean Hannity: These are FBI messages and this is the Obama White House. How high up are we talking about here?

John Solomon: We don’t know the messages are just what they are.

Solomon covers in the second part of his report the internal FBI communications between former counterintelligence agent Peter Strzok, his mistress Lisa Page and others discussing how the Obama White House was trying to take over the investigation. “The words ‘the White House is running this’ are clear in the text message,” Solomon told Hannity, adding that “the FBI agents who opened this case feared that Barack Obama was weak on national security and wouldn’t do what they needed for Russia.” Wowzers. He went on to say, “The political elements of the administration were trying to intrude on the FBI investigation.”

Solomon’s report does not sync with what former Obama deputy national security adviser Ben Rhodes wrote about the investigation in his new book “The World as It Is,” which is set to be published next week by Random House. Well, duh. Rhodes is lying. That’s what he is good at and has done from the beginning. In his book, Rhodes claims that Obama didn’t know there was an FBI investigation into the Trump campaign’s possible contacts with Russia until he left office. That’s just laughable. Rhodes said that “neither he nor Mr. Obama knew at that time that there was an F.B.I. investigation,” according to the New York Times, which obtained an advance copy of the book. Way to cover your collective backsides. No one believes that.

The failed novelist claims in the book that he learned about the FBI investigation from news reports after he left office. Gee, that is the same excuse Obama used multiple times during his presidency. Tell a lie often enough, these guys really think Americans are gullible and stupid. Rhodes is simply insulting our intelligence here. I wouldn’t buy his book to use as a doorstop.

No collusion between President Trump and Russia has ever been proven because it does not exist. The only ones gaining from this are Mueller and his team who are getting paid a ton to try and tie the President’s hands to keep him from doing his job. Taxpayers have wasted almost $17 million on the Russia probe since Mueller took over in 2017, according to a spending report just released by the DOJ. About $10 million was spent in the five months between October 2017 and March 2018 alone. That includes $4.5 million in hefty salaries for Mueller’s team of Trump-hating Democratic attorneys and another $5.5 million spent on random expenses.

Solomon’s report gives justification to President Trump to stop this nonsense.

Do you think Trump should swing the hammer down hard?

Melania Unveils This Year’s White House Christmas Decorations That Libs Are SURE To Hate

Published

...

* By

Melania Trump’s first year in office was marked by immense criticism of our incredible first lady, who in the eyes of the Trump family’s numerous detractors, Melania could do nothing right, or at least as well as her predecessor, Michelle Obama. This included her full Christmas decor plan, which was stunning in silver and white, and a beautiful modern take on the same tired style that Michelle un-creatively came up with.

This year’s decorations will likely be no different, if not worse.

Last year, liberals claimed she decked the halls in depression and gloom, likening it to looking more like a haunted house than a holiday home. So, what will they say about this year’s new look?

Chicks On The Right reports:

FLOTUS doesn’t just slay on the fashion front. Her decorating skills are off the charts. (Yes, yes– I know she didn’t do this by herself, but if you really believe she didn’t have a say, you’re nuuuuuuuuuuuuts.)

ANYWHO. She finally unveiled this year’s White House Christmas decorations, and they’re GORGEOUS.

You have no idea how much I want to stroll through those halls of beautifully decorated trees. Oh well. I’ll have to settle for the aisles of Hobby Lobby.

It all looks great. I’m obsessed. TY, that is all.
