Trump Effect? Poll Shows CNN Brand Plummeting

CNN’s brand has continued to struggle.

CNN, which President Trump has referred to as the “Clinton News Network,” now trails both MSNBC and Fox News in brand perception, according to findings from YouGov. Both MSNBC and CNN have fallen far behind Fox News in recent months.—More…

HUD’s poor need paths to wealth, not vouchers to affluent zip codes

Rather than help low-income families learn the skills to succeed, HUD wants to move them into “opportunity rich neighborhoods” hoping pre-existing success rubs off.

With the new administration, HUD has an opening to help the poor escape poverty, reduce the pay gap, and eliminate a main cause that fuels America’s decade of increasing social clashes.

HUD’s 2016 program, Small Area Fair Market Rents, (SAFMR) relocates Section 8 recipients into upscale zip codes by increasing their voucher values.  The agency believes the current residents’ success will transfer to the newcomers.

Trump order begins rollback of Obama over-regulation regarding water and personal property

One of the most obvious, unwarranted, and egregious examples of Obama-era over-regulation is the infamous “Waters of the United States” rule.  It gave the EPA incredibly broad regulatory leverage against property owners, farmers, and basically anyone who’s land bordered or contained a body of H2O.  As has been pointed out many times, this could range anywhere from dry creek beds to lakes, rivers, and even puddles.

It was federal overreach at its worst and, yesterday, President Trump began the process of rolling it back.

As NBC News reported:

Vancouver refugee with 54 criminal convictions argues to be freed

Since Jacob Lunyamila, a Vancouver resident originally from Africa, got refugee status in 1996, he has racked up 95 criminal charges and 54 convictions in more than 400 interactions with police.

Jobless recovery? Technology advances replace jobs as oilpatch emerges from downturn

Tens of thousands of oil and gas workers laid off during the downturn have been waiting for the patch to get back on its feet, but many of the jobs could be gone for good.

A rapid change in technology is playing out across the industry, after plummeting crude prices that began in 2015 forced companies to cut jobs and other costs wherever they could over the past two years.—More…

Oscars, Actors & Production values

I didn’t watch but given all the buzz, I assume the Oscar’s was an Allan Smithee production. We used to be told that movies were a collaborative effort, not just Stars and the little people. Mr. Beatty did what he does so well, he acted. The more empty the vessel the greater the capacity to fulfill the character, he is considered a great actor. His job is to be loyal to the script, he did as directed. The continuity manager was missing and the stand in was unprepared. Lighting and sound were not very good. The marketing of the finished production was outstanding, a good example of making lemonade when you are handed a lemon.

All the chickens in Hollywood gathered and layed an egg. Boffo!

Green Enemies of the Environment

There was a time when true environmentalists strove to protect wild things. Now the green shirts have become enemies of the environment by pushing green energy and demonising the building blocks of life - carbon and carbon dioxide.

Wind turbines and their cobweb of connecting roads and transmission lines have destroyed native trees and grasses, scarred and uglified wild hilltops, and littered continental shelves with naval and aerial obstacles. They create wind and rain shadows and decimate resident and migratory birds and bats.

The Enemies Of Donald Trump Are The Enemies Of America

After eight years of suffocating under the racist stagnation of B.O. and the House gavel even in the grip of a witch like Nancy Pelosi, President Trump’s address to Congress last night was a breath of fresh air.

Immediately after watching ABC’s live monitoring of the event I put aside my notes, went to YouTube, and watched former president’s Obama’s first address to Congress after he had taken the helm in 2008. The contrast I saw in his audience’s reception was breathtaking.

Hypocrisy in California State Senate Leads to Commie Suppression of Dissent

In an astonishing violation of the First Amendment of the United States Constitution, California State Sen. Janet Nguyen (R-Garden Grove), was forcibly removed from the Senate last Thursday morning for challenging the sycophantic Senate memorial of the late Sen. Tom Hayden, a Democrat with a well-known and lengthy history of communist sympathies. Sen. Nguyen and her family escaped communist Vietnam and came to the United States in search of freedom in 1981 during Ronald Reagan’s presidency. Sadly, what Nguyen experienced last week was communistic suppression of dissent inside the chambers of the California State Senate, in the state she thought epitomized freedom.

Two days earlier, the state Senate held a ceremony to memorialize the late Sen. Hayden. Nguyen notified Senate leaders she planned to make a statement on what Hayden’s pro-Viet Cong stance meant to the Vietnamese people, how it affected Nguyen, her family and other Vietnamese refugees.
