House Republicans, along with 33 Democrats, voted today to roll back much of the 2010 Dodd-Frank bank regulatory law. Already passed by the Senate, the rollback legislation will now go to President Trump to be signed into law.
Passed in response to the 2008 financial crisis, the Dodd–Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act of 2010 attempted to reign in banks from recklessly adhering to the rules placed upon them in the 1990s by Chris Dodd and Barney Frank.
Today’s move toward deregulation is not comprehensive. The largest banks, those with over $250 billion in assets, are not affected—however this includes fewer than ten banks nationwide. The Trump administration and congressional Republicans have made clear this is not the endgame; there is more untangling of the misguided 2010 federal overreach to come…
President Donald Trump’s announcement Tuesday that the U.S. is leaving the Iran deal marks the end of what his predecessor, Barack Obama, considered his main foreign policy legacy.
Trump will earn credit from his supporters for keeping his promise. But in truth, the Iran deal was undone by its own terms. It did not stop Iran from enriching uranium; it did not stop Iran from building a nuclear weapon, eventually; and it did not stop Iran’s global aggression.
In fact, the Iran deal was not even a deal at all.
It was never signed by any of the parties (the U.S., Iran, France, the UK, Germany, China, and Russia). It was unclear about crucial subjects like ballistic missiles, because the “deal” was described differently by the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) and by the UN Security Council Resolutions that were meant to implement it. And, crucially, it was never sent to the U.S. Senate for ratification. Continue reading at breitbart.com.

How the Iran deal violates the Constitution
By Clare M. Lopez — 08/11/15
Among the myriad other reasons why the recently concluded Iran nuclear agreement is a bad deal, the fact that it clearly violates the U.S. Constitution ought to be given more attention.
Article VI says “This Constitution, and the Laws of the United States which shall be made in Pursuance thereof; and all Treaties made, or which shall be made, under the Authority of the United States, shall be the supreme Law of the Land; and the Judges in every State shall be bound thereby, any Thing in the Constitution or Laws of any State to the Contrary notwithstanding.” Continue reading at thehill.com.

At a rally in Michigan last weekend, President Trump promised to bring in lots of guest workers to — I quote — “do your jobs.”
Once, long ago, Trump was against replacing American workers with cheap foreign labor.
Back when Trump was invincible, he sounded more like this:
Breitbart News: “Hundreds of workers at Disney were forced to train their foreign replacements. … [Rubio’s new bill] has zero protections for American workers. … Rubio’s bill is even endorsed by the CEO of Disney. What do you think of Rubio’s bill?”
Trump: “It’s a disaster. It would allow any company in America to replace any worker with cheaper foreign labor. It legalizes job theft. It gives companies the legal right to pass over Americans, displace Americans, or directly replace Americans for good-paying middle-class jobs. …
“I am calling TODAY on Disney to hire back every one of the workers they replaced, and I am calling on Rubio to immediately rescind his sponsorship of the I-Squared bill and apologize to every Floridian for endorsing it.”
To paraphrase Ray Donovan, where do I go to get my Trump back?
Now that he’s president and could actually implement all those great things he ran on, Trump sounds like Liddle Marco.
This was Trump on Saturday night: “We need people to be able to come into our country, do your jobs, help you on the farms. … Guest workers, we’re going to take care of that. Guest workers. Don’t we agree? We have to have them. We have to have them.”
It went on like this for an eternity.
Liberals love to sneer about the bovine idiocy of Trump supporters, who are allegedly incapable of processing basic information. (See Evan Osnos, every week in The New Yorker.) The dead silence that greeted Trump as he blathered about replacing Americans with guest workers proves that Trump voters are listening quite closely.
The president needs to understand, unless he drops his bizarre and totally uncharacteristic desire to bring in people to do your job, the voters might just bring in someone else to do his [emphasis mine].

Glad we organized rallies and protested these past 8 years for the GOP to lie to everyone and utterly betray us on their biggest promise.

Most people under the age of 30 do not remember just how good life can be in America, what it means to live through a sustained era of both peace and prosperity. My hope and prayer for 2018 are that at long last, they get this chance. The signs, at least some of them, point to this being a very real possibility.
After World War II, life in America was pretty sweet. Not perfect, but perfect enough. After two decades of Depression and war, we came out of it with an economy on fire, and our beloved country became the envy of the world.
This all changed, of course, with the assassination of an American president on November 22, 1963. The 18 years that followed were filled with the Vietnam War, social upheaval, race riots, more assassinations, Watergate, an energy crisis, Soviet expansion, Iranian hostages, and Jimmy Carter’s economic and spiritual malaise.
The election of Ronald Reagan, in 1981, returned us to an era of peace and prosperity, one that would last 20 years, straight through to September 11, 2001.
Unfortunately, on that terrible September morning, we were at war again, including a pre-emptive war based on disastrously bad intelligence. Peace and prosperity went up in flames due to another bitter, divisive, and costly effort in nation building that, to this day, seems to have no end.
Among other travesties, Obama handed the Middle East to Russia and ISIS, stifled an economy that should have come roaring out of that recession, codified a repression of Christianity unseen since our founding, and with malicious intent (and the help of a boot-licking media) cynically fabricated racial, religious, and cultural divisions, based almost exclusively on hyper-politicized lies (Trayvon Martin; Benghazi; You Can Keep Your Insurance; Hands Up, Don’t Shoot). Obama could have made America great again. He, instead, chose the dark side.
This is not to say that the good times were all good, were only about chocolate rivers and peppermint trees. There was the Cold War, Korea, Sputnik, AIDS, Iran Contra, the unforgivable attacks on Robert Bork and Clarence Thomas, Rodney King and the Los Angeles riots, O.J. Simpson, impeachment, Columbine, Oklahoma City… Stressful times, but stressful times that passed.
