Another Trump Victory – Remain in Mexico Policy Stands

In an 8-1 decision with only the wise Latina dissenting. What a shocker!!

from the Blaze:

The Supreme Court handed President Donald Trump a win on Wednesday with a court order giving his administration a judicial green light to continue enforcement of its “Migrant Protection Protocols,” otherwise known as the “remain in Mexico” policy for the time being.

Last week, the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco upheld a lower court’s decision blocking the policy from going into effect in Arizona and California — the two border states within its geographical jurisdiction.

That injunction was set to go into effect on Thursday, before the Supreme Court stepped in this week. read more

Canadian Healthcare Ain’t Great

by: Brent Smith

With America currently in the grip of coronavirus madness, healthcare is again front and center.

Will there be a treatment? How long will it take to develop and once it is, how long will the wait be for the administration of it once it is available?

Well, it may all depend on what country you reside in.

Many in America, especially leftists, complain about the American healthcare system. They would prefer something like, for example the Canadian system, where everyone is covered, its all free and it’s far superior to the American system.

So once a vaccine is produced, let’s all run across the border to Canada, because Canadian healthcare is great!

Or is it?

French-Canadian entrepreneur Alain Lambert has a different take on it – and it’s not quite as rosy.

Scorpion Venom for Arthritis

They mightn’t seem like the most obvious places to look, but the venom of deadly creatures like spiders, snakes and scorpions are an increasingly rich source of medicines for human health. The latest example of this comes from scientists at Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, who have discovered a tiny protein in scorpion venom that could become part of a potent new treatment for arthritis. read more

Is It Time for a Payroll Tax Cut?

by: Brent Smith

I ask everyone to read this or any article on the proposed Trump Payroll tax cut with a large grain of salt. By that I mean you must read between the lines, as everyone has an agenda – good or bad.

The bottom line to consider is that a tax cut – any tax cut, is good for America and bad for government. It “allows” the people that pay the tax to keep more of their own money. This effectively shuts the government out of the equation, and they don’t like that. It’s why pundits, bureaucrats and politicians alike hate the idea.

They would much prefer to give “targeted” relief. This merely means that, as always, they will be the ones to pick the winners and losers.

A payroll tax cut positively affects both employees and employers. Many employers may even opt to add their portion of the cut to the employee’s salary, increasing take-home pay even more.

However, Trump wants to go even further by suggesting a suspension of all Payroll taxes for the balance of the year. This, I can assure you, will NEVER sell on Capital Hill.

All the government hacks in Washington understand something crucial that the general public likely does not. They understand that reinstituting this tax after people have gotten used to not paying it, would end in a citizen revolt. It’s why withholding was devised in the first place. What the public doesn’t see, won’t upset them.

But if they get a taste of reality – of an expanded paycheck, they’ll be hard-pressed to give it up.

from Forbes:

After Coronavirus-Fueled Stock Market Drop, Trump Considers Payroll Tax Relief

Stocks are expected to rally today after a historic drop on Monday. Concerns over the price of oil (thanks to a price war between Russia and Saudi Arabia) and how the coronavirus will further affect the global economy sent shares tumbling by 2,013 points: the most significant point drop since Dow began recording stock averages in 1884. read more

Not Covid Related – A New Muslim Wave Coming to Europe

Why is Turkey still a member of NATO? Of course one could also ask why we’re a member anymore, but that’s another discussion. Turkey, and more specifically its president, Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, is no friend of Europe or America. And now Erdoğan has promised to unleashed vast amounts of Muslim refugees on its European “allies.” All by sending them through Greece. What a guy.

from American Thinker: 

While the media are riveted by coronavirus, the Greece-Turkey border is exploding

Even as Americans are obsessed with whether Trump is controlling the Wuhan Virus or whether Costco will have more toilet paper, unnerving things are happening on the Greece-Turkey border.  Turkey has unleashed tens of thousands of Muslim refugees who are headed to Europe, an invasion that, if successful, could destroy Europe’s economy and will advance the demographic change started in 2015. read more

Next Gen Batteries Overcome Many Issues

Lithium-polymer batteries have tendencies to overheat, short circuit and explode. The next generation of batteries hope to bypass these issues while dramatically increasing storage capacity and charging rates

If it seems like there’s a new battery technology in the news every week or so lately, that’s because a ton of research money that’s been spent over the past five or ten years is starting to bear fruit. A huge part of our future is electric; that much is clear, and there’s room for a bunch of different technologies to move things forward from the status quo, each with its own strengths. read more

Democrat’s Corona-Madness

Trump Derangement Continues

by: Brent Smith

Candi DdeBaca, a Denver democrat councilwoman, retweeted this from a Susan Daniels, “For the record, if I do get the coronavirus, I’m attending every MAGA rally I can.”

What a charming, thoughtful and charitable gesture from a leftist wingnut.

And to this, Candi added her own comment: #solidarity Yaaaas!! – with several emojis, included a black power fist. How quaint, and doesn’t at all harken back to the days of the violent and racist Black Panthers of the `60s.

Solidarity with what? Does Candi mean that she stands with and for a person who claims to want to infect all Trump voters? Or maybe it’s just the ones who attend rallies.

But when the honorable Councilwoman received a little pushback, Candi claimed that those of us on the right who took offense to her retweet and comment were mistaken. She claimed last week that she was merely being sarcastic. read more
